CNN Redefines Constitutionalists as “Tenther Movement”

Establishment attempts to marginalize and politicize grassroots freedom movements

Do you think the federal government is too big? Do you believe states have relinquished too much authority to Washington? Do you think the people should re-assert their constitutional rights in the face of diminishing liberties? You must be with that radical fringe group “The Tenthers” according to CNN.

“A movement has been growing over the past two years of urging states to exert their rights under the 10th Amendment.” CNN’s Ed Hornick writes.

“The anger behind the so-called ‘Tenther’ movement comes from what advocates see as the federal government’s forcing policies on the states — most notably on health care reform, economic recovery measures and social issues.” Hornick adds.

Hornick then quotes Atlanta Journal-Constitution columnist Jay Bookman who referred to the Georgia Senate’s April 2009 declaration of state sovereignty as “nasty” and indicative of a growth in “radical causes and fringe groups”.

“You have to question the judgment of those who would have any truck whatsoever with such nonsense.” Bookman stated at the time.

The connotation is clear – using the term “tenther” is an attempt to link defenders of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to “birthers”, those who suggest that Obama is not an American citizen.

The mass media attack campaign on the “birther” movement was inevitable, given that it was extremely easy for establishment organisations on the left such as MSNBC, not to mention CNN, to associate it with the right, and use it as a way of consistently playing the race card to go after critics of Obama on any issue.

It is clear that those same organisations are now employing ridicule-by-association tactics in an attempt to marginalize a truly non partisan grass roots movement that is exploding in popularity.

In response to increasing federal encroachment, a growing number of states have passed and proposed resolutions to assert the Tenth Amendment and the Bill of Rights of the Constitution.

The Tenth Amendment Center has the latest facts and figures. The founder of the website, Michael Boldin explains:

These non-binding resolutions, often called “state sovereignty resolutions” do no carry the force of law. Instead, they are intended to be a statement of the legislature of the state. They play an important role, however. If you owned an apartment building and had a tenant not paying rent, you wouldn’t show up with an empty truck to kick them out without first serving notice. That’s how we view these Resolutions – as serving “notice and demand” to the Federal Government to “cease and desist any and all activities outside the scope of their constitutionally-delegated powers.” Follow-up, of course, is a must.

The Tenth Amendment is part of the Bill of Rights and was ratified on December 15, 1791. It states the Constitution’s principle of Federalism by providing that powers not granted to the national government nor prohibited to the states are reserved to the states and to the people. It is based on an earlier provision of the Articles of Confederation: “Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every power, jurisdiction, and right, which is not by this Confederation expressly delegated to the United States, in Congress assembled.”

It is important to remember that the state sovereignty movement was primed by opposition to the Bush administration’s consistent subversion of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights after 9/11, it is neither a conservative nor a liberal movement – and that is why it is most troubling for the establishment.

It was no surprise to see a footnote attached to the now infamous leaked “Rightwing Extremism” report by the Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis, which defined”rightwing extremism in the United States” as including not just racist or hate groups, but also groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority.

It is ironic that the genesis of the terms “birther” and now “tenther” stem from “truther” – a description given to activists primarily occupying the 9/11 truth movement, the core of which is made up of non-partisan patriots who encourage others to break free from the shackles of the false left right paradigm, reject framed political posturing and address the real issue of freedom vs tyranny.

The establishment is clearly attempting to attach negative connotations to the term, applying it to any movement it wishes to demonize, while attempting to firmly ground it within the control mechanism of the superficial political spectrum.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
