Do Like "my articles"?

Then check out the rest. I have written essays on all kinds of topics from Climate Change to 9/11, from Israel to America, from Religion to History and from Internet Surveillence to the rise of the new high tech police state.

The Internet is under attack by big business and big government who are trying to control the flow of information any way they can. Using the threat of Terrorism and Cyber attacks the western world (especially USA/UK/Australian governments) are expanding their power to control internet traffic and recently Google and Verizon signed a deal that will end net neutrality.

What this means is alternative news sites like Dark Politricks and many others will find it harder to bring you the news that the mainstream media wished you didn't know about. This is because they will be either blocked by Chinese style firewalls (as Australia has already introduced) or they will be pushed down the Google rankings by special algorithms that control a sites listing.

Web servers and bandwidth costs money and articles take time to write. Whilst I try to bring you the best of the alternative news every day I have also personally written hundreds of articles for this site and you won't find many one paragraph or half hearted articles with my name at the top of them.

Please donate

Whilst you may not want to donate money to an information clearing house website that collates articles about the war on terror in one place I would like to remind you that:

  • I am asking you to help me continue my OWN writing not the collation of other articles written by others.
  • I have already been kicked off many servers and blogging sites for my own writings due to various reasons.
  • I allow my own work to be re-printed across the web without complaint. Just search Google for Dark Politricks articles that are not on this site to see for yourself. My articles have appeared in many places including, and and many others besides.

So to help continue my own writing I would appreciate any dontations that you feel appropriate, especially if you like one of my articles or essays. Just think of all the extra articles and links as a collection of related news stories that mean you don't have to visit hundreds of different sites each day to get your news about the world of politricks and the war on terror. All money goes towards hosting my own server (not a shared server) and prevents me having to litter the site with flashing adverts as many others do. I realise people are having a tough time in the current economic climate.

Thanks for your continued support.

Jeremy Corbyn’s Full Speech at The 2015 Labour Party Conference

Jeremy Corbyn’s Full Speech at The 2015 Labour Party Conference

By Dark Politricks

As the Tory right-wing papers have got bored with #piggate they are back to slagging off the new Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

They see any disagreement in the party as a major split, every discussion as a failed policy, and attack Corbyn at every turn.

Maybe it’s because he has increased the Labour party membership more than in recent years, excited young people by honest talking, and isn’t part of the neo-con axis of war establishment that they are angry.

He can see that it has been the recent pointless wars in Libya, Iraq and Syria that have directly caused the mass influx of refugees into Europe whilst the Tories deny any culpability for the mess Libya is now in.

He should take it as a compliment.

If they didn’t think he was popular and a danger to their elite then he would just be ignored, or made fun of like Ed Miliband was.

Instead he is the “most dangerous man in Britain”, someone who will put our nations security at risk by not following the US into every war they want to start.

Someone who is not scared to admit that our nuclear deterrent is a waste of money. It isn’t independent as it relies on US GPS satellites, so we would have to get US permission to fire anyway, so what is the point of it?

Watch his recent Labour conference speech and get a flavour of what he is all about.

Just remember, if we can print money at 0% interest rates to keep the banks afloat by lending it to them so they can then whack up the interest before lending it to us and make free money we can print money for investment, house building and job creation.

This is what he wants to do, socialism NOT for the rich as we currently have but an equal society for all of us.

Why I am glad Jeremy Corbyn was elected

Why I am glad Jeremy Corbyn was elected

By Dark Politricks

As you should know from previous articles I paid my £3 and voted for Jeremy Corbyn to become the newly elected Labour leader.

With nearly 60% of the vote in the first round, he won a massive mandate across all sections of voters to become the new leader of the previously tory lite Labour party.

He won the majority of Labour members votes, the majority of trade union votes (who if anyone forgets – did create the party they still bankroll), and the majority of the almost quarter of a million of people like me who signed up as an affiliate to vote for the leader and deputy leader.

So as the right-wing papers attack him today, with Tories calling him the most dangerous man in Britain and with the Tory Defence minister saying he will put our national defence at risk, I want to remind you why I voted for him.

I want a real choice in British Elections.

With the Liberal Democrats being wiped out at the last election and the Blairite years bringing Labour so far to the centre that they became more right-wing than the Tories at some stages, this is the only way to give the electorate a real choice at the next election.

A real choice between the politics of inclusion, peace and help for all to get on in life and those that mean socialism for the rich, austerity for the poor along with constant war and attacks on civil liberties.

Please remember the Tories have NOT resolved our massive national debt problems through their punishment to the poorest and neediest in society. Instead they have grown our debt more than Labour ever did, always remember this when George Osborne carps on about reducing the deficit. The deficit can reduce at the same time as the national debt growing – read up on the difference if you don’t know it.

I also don’t want our money wasted on unnecessary wars that have caused this mass influx of immigrants, refugees and ISIS sleeper cells into the EU. There have already been reports of thousands of Syrian passports for sale in Turkey so that terrorists can get straight into the EU and arrests have already been made of ISIS suspects. This is harming the chances of real refugees fleeing from the crisis we helped create from gaining safety in the EU.

Remember we caused this mess by going to war in Libya, Iraq, and Syria when we didn’t need to. It cost this country billions if not trillions, and firing £400k Tomahawk missiles at Afghan mud huts just causes more people to hate us and creates terrorists for the future. Even our own top Army brass believe this to be true. It’s the Chicken Hawks in Washington and Westminster, who love sending other peoples kids into war, that think wasting tax payers money on creating new bogeymen to threaten our civil liberties with is a good idea.

All these wars have made us less safe at home and Jeremy understands this despite establishment opinions.

Whether the US, NATO, MI6, the CIA and the UK establishment will allow a Labour leader to become Prime Minister is another matter.

If I was Jeremy I would be seriously considering employing body doubles like Saddam Hussein did just in case he is found dead in an apparent suicide. Three shots to the head of course…..

Also if we can print money at 0% interest rates to keep the banks afloat why can we not print it to invest in the economy by building infrastructure, badly needed housing to keep the hugely inflated private rental prices down, new train lines and other job creation activities?

So whilst the right-wing papers are printing headlines like the following ones I have listed today, I would just like to wish Jeremy well, and I am glad both my votes managed to get he and Tom Watson elected yesterday.

Daily Mail

  • Is that your new shadow cabinet, Jeremy? New Labour leader Corbyn sends his deputy Tom Watson to Andrew Marr show while he poses with girls in a park after eleven frontbenchers quit.
  • Corbyn’s union backers plan first general strike for 90 years and urge support for law breakers.
  • George is the real winner of the Labour contest – and he’s got his eye on Liz Kendall
  • Enemies of Britain… but friends of Corbyn: How Corbyn appears to hate this country, by Stephen Pollard, editor of the Jewish Chronicle.
  • Labour rocked as shock poll says party will lose next TWO elections as MPs plot to oust Jeremy Corbyn after Left-winger’s sensational victory.
  • Corbyn is an absurd vessel for the hopes of the disaffected and takes Labour another step closer to the margins of British politics, argues ex-Home Secretary Charles Clarke.
  • Now wait for Labour’s thugs to march again: From a moderniser who spent the 1980s battling hard left bruisers, David Blunkett warns the party could be out of power for a generation.

The Scum – Sorry Sun

  • New Labour leader sings The Red Flag with supporters at victory knees-up, while exodus of party heavyweights prompts fears of party split.
  • Corbyn will take us back to the 70s David Blunkett fears the Far Left will seize control of the Labour Party.
  • The vest is yest to come if you win if you win top like Jez. New Labour Corbyn loves to a wear a white singlet and you too can dress just like the Marxist firebrand by taking part in our great competition.

  • SNP ‘could form alliance’ with Corbyn’s Labour.
  • Split emerges as deputy opposes new leader’s policies.
  • Corbyn to pick shadow cabinet amid party mutiny.
  • Cameron: Labour is a threat to our national security.

And just remember whilst Jeremy Corbyn was being attacked for publicly talking to Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams, during the times he still had to have his voice edited out and re-spoken on British TV, the Tories were doing it on the quiet through their own backdoor channels.

All wars are finally ended by talking and compromise unless one side is totally defeated and Jeremy knows that, the problem is the military industrial complex won’t make money without these endless wars. This is why we haven’t had the peace dividend we were supposed to get when Communism was defeated in the USSR and Eastern Europe.

We have seen no real end to the wars we have caused lately. The wars we thought we won have carried on through proxies or ended up as civil wars from Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya to the current mess in Syria which will blow up in Europe’s faces, quite literally I feel.

Unless we don’t stop demonising Russia, Syria and Iran and stop Turkey from using it as an excuse to bomb their PPK, Kurdish enemies, who are all actually fighting ISIS on the ground. We will see more crackdowns on civil liberties, a worse refugee crisis and more terrorist attacks.

Only an end to the axis of war that the current Tory and hopefully OLD Tory lite Labour governments of recent years belonged to, will end the war on terror.

Only a person who can see that talking rather than bombing solves problems will solve this crisis we are all facing due to US/UK/French aggression around the world. Jeremy could be that person.

For too long we have let the establishment sway our minds and votes through fear of the unknown. Labour was taken away from their founders, the working classes when Tony Blair got elected by taking it to the centre and appealing to middle England and Tory supporters.

Whilst New Labour did some good things at first and managed the economy well in the early years, they also took us into 4 wars, let the Banksters and markets run free, created the most surveilled state in the western world (apart from maybe the USA now), repealed many laws that gave us the right to protest, congress and stay silent without question in police interview, and used anti-terrorism laws for non-terrorist activities such as freezing Icelands money when they had their own banking crisis. The Icelandic people have never forgiven Gordon Brown for labelling them terrorists and I know from my recent trip there just how much they hate Gordon Brown for this abuse of the law.

Finally New Labour allowed the banksters to break the banks and then used taxpayer money to bail them out. Not one banker was jailed for the numerous crimes of fraud that went on during these years.

They also helped create massive debt through their expansion of PFI (Private Finance Initiative) schemes that may have seen many schools and hospitals built but will cost the country dearly in payments for decades to come unless stopped. Some estimates put the cost as high as £300 billion.

New Labour may have seemed a good idea at the time but they ended up no better than the Tories.

This is why so many disaffected young people were so energised by Corby’s campaign. An unlikely hero for the young you may think but then they are the biggest sufferers of Labour and then the Tories recent political choices and austerity cuts.

Labour introduced tuition fees and the coalition government under the duplicitous Nick Clegg and David Cameron decided to increase them.

The new Tory government has decided to remove any state help for the young unemployed even when there are no jobs on offer and they have put the national debt on their shoulders to pay over future years despite George Cameron’s claims to do otherwise. It is no wonder they saw Jeremy’s campaign as a breath of fresh air and voted for him en mass.

So whilst the right-wing are basically “taking the piss”, and denouncing the new Labour leader as a far left, danger to society and national security just think about who you are listening to and what they have done to resolve those matters rather than make them worse.

Therefore I urge you to think carefully at the next election and not take the words of papers owned by neo-cons, tax avoiders, corporate criminals and establishment mouthpieces who benefit from the status quo as fact and do your own thinking before casting a vote.

Whether you like Corybn’s election or not and as long as the Blairites don’t become backbench snipers and backstabbers to prevent a successful leadership we could have a proper choice for once in the 2020 general election.

Hopefully it will be one between a party who will look after the interests of the young, the poor, the middle classes and create jobs, build houses and prevent fruitless wars and one that looks after the interests of all those who benefit from war, high rental prices and tax avoidance.

The choice is yours – but at least we now have a real one.

Please read in his own words what he wants for Britain.

89 Killed in Iraq as Bombers Strike near Baghdad Shrine

89 Killed in Iraq as Bombers Strike near Baghdad Shrine
Margaret Griffis


One of three suicide bombers who had attacked Jeraishi earlier this week may have been the son of a Jordanian lawmaker. M.P. Mazen al-Dhalaein said he son had been studying medicine in Ukraine when he left to join the Islamic State militants. His sons last message home was to notify his parents that he had signed up as a suicide bomber.

At least 89 were killed in fresh violence, and 88 were wounded:

In Baghdad, three suicide bombers struck at a checkpoint in Aden Square, where 24 people died and 64 were wounded. Nearby Hurriya was also targeted in the attack. A bomb in Harthiya wounded two people.

One person was killed and eight more were wounded by a roadside bomb as they tried to flee Hawija.

In Abbasi, fighting broke out between ISIS/DAASH militants and those in the Naqshbandi Army. At least 28 were killed and many more were wounded. An airstrike killed 11 more.

Airstrikes in Riyadh left eight militants dead and 11 wounded.

Peshmerga forces killed six in Humeira.

Six militants were killed and three were wounded during operations in Garma.

Security forces killed three militants, including a leader, in Saqlawiya.

Russian Moves in Syria Highlight General US Hypocrisy

Russian Moves in Syria Highlight General US Hypocrisy

By Robert Barsocchini

One has to wonder whether Moscow planners intend, as one of the effects of their current anti-terrorist (using US parlance) operations in Syria, to highlight US hypocrisy. Intentional or not, this aspect of the Russian campaign has been stunning.

As soon as Russia began doing in Syria the same thing the US claims to be doing, Syrian victims magically switched from “collateral damage” to “civilians”, and suddenly bombing, as long as it is Russia doing it, will only fuel more extremism and radicalization”, according to the White House, which has increased terrorism in the Mid-East approximately “by a factor of seven”, according to experts, since illegally invading Afghanistan in 2001 and Iraq in 2003. (Iraq, reeling from the US invasion, saw almost four thousand people killed in September.)

At the same time as the US accuses Russia of “attacks on Syrian…civilians”, US-backed death squads in Yemen (led by US-coordinated/supplied Saudi Arabia while the US also bombs directly) carried out a massacre at a wedding, executing over 130 people and making Kill Bill look like an episode of My Fair Wedding. (The US itself also directly attacks weddings regularly.)

The US then blocked a UN bid for an independent investigation into the massacre, and said Saudi Arabia can investigate itself.

At the same time, the US, in classic racist/supremacist fashion, refuses to apologize to a Yemeni man whose entire family the US massacred, rejecting “Faisal bin Ali Jabers offer to drop his federal lawsuit in exchange for [the same] condolences Obama has given to western victims of [the same] 2012 strike”. (Even this reporter has to say “wow…” to that one.)

Also simultaneously (or, to be precise, “one day after” pointing entrail-draped fingers as Russia), the US spent hours bombing the only hospital in Afghanistan, which is well-known to all sides and for which the US/NATO had exact coordinates.

Greenwald mentions that the US has long been hostile towards the Doctors Without Borders staff at this hospital for treating both patients who collaborate with and resist the US empire, so, while DWB frantically called Washington and NATO, telling them to stop detonating bombs in the building, the US continued its detonations for about an hour, murdering 9 DWB staffers and 7 other people in the hospital.

Gallup’s finding last month that distrust in US corporate media has hit a new high of 60%, particularly among ages 18 to 45, might suggest that people are catching on to the ridiculousness of getting “news” exclusively from giant, shady organizations run by oligarchs with massive conflicts of interest related to international markets and private capital and with intimate connections and a revolving door to US government positions controlling an unprecedented global military empire.

However, Gallup found last year that almost half of respondents (47%) believe corporate media is too “liberal”, reminding us that much of the grievance with corporate “news” is motivated by a belief that it is not nationalistic/US-supremacist enough.

But for the 53% who did not say their issue with corporate “news” is that it is too “liberal”, it is hard to imagine that current US actions, as particularly exposed by Russia’s new moves in Syria and Washington’s reaction to them, are not creating a little cognitive dissonance – mental discomfort/inconsistency – in at least a couple more of these US-Americans.

And as Frederick Douglass put it, for an enslaved (or in this case, obedient) person to be fully subservient and “contented”, he or she must “be able to detect no inconsistencies in slavery”, and must be convinced of “its absolute rightfulness”. For even “one crevice through which a single drop can fall, …will certainly rust off the slaves chain.”

While nationalism is, as Orwell would point out, certainly harder to crack than slavery, if Douglass’s statement is applicable in any way, and if more people, even a few at a time, are able to catch onto the US government/corporate ruse, the question then becomes, “When?”

But to end on a somber note, Andre Vltchek, on a recent trip to the US, found that the number of people wise to the game is “too tiny to stop the crimes that the Empire is committing”, a stark reminder for concerned parties to keep hammering away, trying new tactics, and forging new alliances.

Portugal: Do Not vote!

Portugal: Do Not vote!
By Pedro Aibeo

Here is why you should not vote: There are plenty of better things to do with your personal time, for yourself and for your community than go voting! With this time you could be doing something much more meaningful with direct results on your life.

What you need to do is to work on the democratic decisions at the community level. If you train to mobilize people for discussions and alternative solutions to the current issues and events, or even just to meet to clean the streets every Sunday morning (instead of listening to the church monologue), you will be learning the fundamental power you hold, the power of assembly and of communal decision making. This is one important thing you can be doing with your time. Voting alienates you from that.

dontvoteBut even if your vote indeed manages to make a difference and a new party is elected, nothing will change. As you see everywhere else, it makes little or no difference at all. Take Greece for example, compare what Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras promised and what Syriza are doing now. Once in power, politicians realize they have no power, they are all contractually and legally bound to institutions and corporations. Take a look at the history of democracy over the last century. The pattern is there, you just need to read about it. Dont trust my word, do your homework.

Or use the same time you are planning to waste on going to vote to gather friends and discuss (on financial matters, tax dodging, how companies like PwC facilitate it, how alternative currencies can be created in your community with blockchain )

So if the new central government comes one day to your doorstep and forces significant changes which alarms you, you are now in a much better position and far better networked with your community to fight back and demand what is needed! Why? Because you invested your time in the community instead of voting! Because you trained for the essential feature of democracy within your community: universal informed decision-making!

Are you seriously going to invest your time to legitimize the power for a few people you never met?

No! Use your time wisely! We do not need to feed their desperate attention-seeking pathology. Invest in yourself and in your community! Self-governance is possible but it will never come from politicians, it will come from all of us.

The same people who are so desperate in getting a job that they will spend days kissing random people in the street!
No! Do not vote!

And please, if you dont like my arguments (Julian Assange says something similar), write to me, inform me, but do so during the upcoming Sunday!

Do not vote!

As .01% face extinction: Scrooge, Darth Vader, Professor Snape offer advice to their minions

As .01% face extinction: Scrooge, Darth Vader, Professor Snape offer advice to their minions

By Carl Herman

4-minute video of Darth Vaders choice to serve love, family, and community rather than vicious psychopathic hatred:

For those involved in support of US government-sponsored disinformation and massive crimes that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions of the 99%s dollars, I invite you to consider the quality of human relationships you wish to work for in creating your/our future.

National security and a brighter future is not a function of fear, manipulation, and psychopathic control. Our best security follows cooperation, justice under the law, dignity, and freedom. Surely you recognize that all promised natural rights in America are now gone, and the 99.99% are herded by the .01% as their work animals. The slaughter to which we are herded:

Working for your best imagined self-expression of virtue may include a unique contribution from the inside of your agency. You, as Darth Vader and Professor Snape in fictions that are popular for strong resonance to a real story we all want told, can reclaim your hearts and honor to be our heroes.

Truly, arent you ready now to re-embrace love and honor as your path?

Please consider the wisdom of a Scrooge conversion to act for the benefit of all humanity rather than your self-proclaimed loveless masters. From Dickens 1843 text:

Scrooge was better than his word. He did it all, and infinitely more; and to Tiny Tim, who did not die, he was a second father. He became as good a friend, as good a master, and as good a man, as the good old city knew, or any other good old city, town, or borough, in the good old world. Some people laughed to see the alteration in him, but he let them laugh, and little heeded them; for he was wise enough to know that nothing ever happened on this globe, for good, at which some people did not have their fill of laughter in the outset; and knowing that such as these would be blind anyway, he thought it quite as well that they should wrinkle up their eyes in grins, as have the malady in less attractive forms. His own heart laughed: and that was quite enough for him.

Public attraction to the stories of Star Wars and the Harry Potter books/movies recognize that our societys jump to civilized relations for all of us might require support from people within the dark side acting as covert agents for building a brighter future.

Both Darth Vader (see video) and Professor Snape realized they were only tools of powers above them, things to be manipulated rather than sentient beings of free will. The severest irony is they both recognized their service to the dark side included deaths of their loved-ones and even themselves whenever convenient to their masters. That was Snapes ending, although his path was taken with honor to infiltrate the darkness (4-minute video):

But that should be an obvious conclusion to those working in the real-world version of these analogies. We see it in the macro picture of millions killed every year through war and poverty, and in micro with individuals who we know.

For years, I have recommended Truth and Reconciliation to exchange full truth and return of public assets for no prosecution and a guaranteed provided comfortable retirement. Indeed, I am prepared to speak on the .01%s corporate media to present this option with full confidence it is the most efficient in ending the crimes and avoiding a violent end-game as the .01% are recognized for who they really are by the 99.99%.

Every day, I saw more evidence about the evils humankind will inflict on their fellow humans to gain or maintain power What is more, those who choose not to empathize may enable real monsters. For without ever committing an act of outright evil ourselves, we collude with it through our own apathy If you choose to use your status and influence to raise your voice on behalf of those who have no voice; if you choose to identify not only with the powerful, but with the powerless; if you retain the ability to imagine yourself into the lives of those who do not have your advantages, then it will not only be your proud families who celebrate your existence, but thousands and millions of people whose reality you have helped transform for the better. We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better. J. K. Rowling, Harvard Commencement, June 5, 2008.

Minions to the evil .01%: does this 1-minute video artistically represent your memories, too?
