With Glenn Beck leading the charge, mainstream media swarms on TX Gov. candidate Medina for not disavowing 9/11 Truthers

Today, in a move that illustrates exactly why Glenn Beck has painstakingly tried to portray himself over the past year as some kind of man of the people while hosting a show on the infamous Fox News Channel that cheered the War in Iraq,  he turned an interview with Debra Medina, a candidate for the TX Governer seat, into a PR ambush on her and the 9/11 Truth movement.

According to Raw Story:

Beck began his interview with Debra Medina on Thursday by stating: “There was a theme that ran against you, which is that you’re a 9/11 truther.”

“Well, there’s lots of mud that people would like to throw at Debra Medina and make it stick … But that’s the first time I’ve heard that accusation. That’s an interesting one,” Medina responded, laughing.

“Then let me be more frank and ask you the question,” Beck said. “Do you believe the government was in any way involved with the bringing down of the World Trade Center on 9/11?”

“I don’t have all of the evidence there, Glenn, so I’m not in a place– I have not been out publicly questioning that,” Medina said. “I think some very good questions have been raised in that regard, there are some very good arguments and I think the American people have not seen all the evidence there, so I have not taken a position on that.”

“I think the people of America might think that might be a yes,” Beck replied. After the interview, the radio host added: “While I don’t endorse any candidates, I think I can write her off the list.”

Since then, the mainstream media machine, (including the Raw Story article that the above excerpt is from), has been in full attack mode with articles screaming that Medina’s political career is over, including commentary from carefully selected pundits to punctuate this point in the minds of their audience as they are portrayed as authorities on what the attitudes of average Americans are.

While in the isolated world of network news, asking questions about the biggest mass murder in US history which has led the United States to adopt policies of pre-emptive war, torture, and pass the Patriot Act is considered “on the fringe “, a CBS/New York Times Scientific poll in 2006 showed that 84% surveyed reject the official 9/11 story.  53 percent of respondents thought  the Bush administration was hiding something about the attacks, while 28 percent believed it was outright lying.

Among the many questions posed by 9/11 Truthers and victims’ family members is why 3 steel-framed buildings in New York City, only 2 having been hit by airplanes, could collapse at near free fall speed without the use of explosives when the official story of the “pancake collapse” would have meant that the floors would collide into each other on the way down, thus slowing the collapse speed.  Building 7, the building that wasn’t hit by an airplane, completely collapsed into it’s own footprint when no other steel framed building has ever before or after done so simply because of fire.

While the mainstream media is attempting to send the message that questioning the government’s complicity in 9/11 is out of bounds, through use of carefully scripted articles and mass peer pressure, it is unlikely that anyone who already has an opinion on the issue will be swayed one way or another.  By putting Medina on the spot, Beck’s target was two-fold– to derail Medina’s campaign in order to maintain the current fake right/left political machine in Texas and keep a wave of successful grassroots candidates from sweeping through other states, and to cast further scorn upon the 9/11 Truth movement in a desperate hope that the questions surrounding that terrible day will be swept under the rug.  Portraying himself as a grassroots champion on a network that proudly promotes torture and war and presents slanted stories under the Orwellian line of “Fair and Balanced” allows Beck to reach his audience with an air of credibility while acting as the controlled opposition that steers its members away from any issues that challenge the establishment.

Many people on the fence who don’t believe the government’s story of what happened on 9/11 have not committed to the idea yet that the government was complicit in the attacks because of the grand implications of such a revelation, or because they themselves haven’t seen enough of the evidence to decide.   So they only question. Fox News  exploits this state of educated uncertainty by presenting questions in terms of absolutes.  The questions are asked in such a way as to stifle discussion and put the one being interviewed on the spot  If the guest tries to give an answer that is more than a just yes or a no, they are usually interrupted and the question is repeated in a sharper tone.  If the person says yes then their answer is followed by scoffs and bullying from the host who proceeds to lecture the guest and call that person names.  If the person weakens and says no, then Fox News has achieved its aim without much effort.  With the host controlling the time given to the guest to answer question and the flow of the conversation there is hardly any chance for a real discussion or debate of the issue.

Fox News isn’t the only major “news” network that aims to scare the public away from questioning the events of 9/11, but it is the most notoriuous.   Despite the mainstream media’s efforts to squash the 9/11 Truth movement and keep any real debate from seeing the light of day, over the past 8 years the movement has rapidly grown.

Former MN Governor Jesse Ventura recently covered the issue on his show, Conspiracy Theory on Tru TV.

Apparently Fox didn’t want another (possible) Governor to “go rogue” and crack the TV looking glass any wider.

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 all happening now 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". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

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 I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out 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 tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it 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?
