Rapid City, South Dakota has a long history of racial discrimination against African American Airmen, dating back to the 1940s. “Negroes, Messicans, Red Skins,” Rapid City hates them all, especially if they are serving their country.

Police Chief Steve Alexander of Rapid City says his officers spied the “gay marriage license” of a 9 year Air Force veteran by looking thru a window.  Nobody believes this, especially not the American Civil Liberties Union which filed suit against the department this week.  It seems officers looking for Air Force Sergeant Jene Newsome’s “partner” for an alleged warrant in Alaska saw the mysterious document “on a kitchen table through a window” and reported it to Chief Alexander who called Newsome’s base commander.  Alexander’s management style and the quality of the Rapid City police have long been in question.  A bent license plate could always buy a bashed in head or a night in jail in Rapid City, especially if you are the wrong color.

Newsome, a valued and highly trained veteran with an excellent record was forced to resign under “don’t ask, don’t tell.”  However, there are some inconsistencies to the police account.

Police forces don’t serve misdemeanor warrants for jurisdictions out of state or thousands of miles away.  As a matter of economics, it is hard to extradite an armed robber from Ohio to Michigan.  Something else is going on here, something fishy.  A look into the history of Rapid City made it clear, this is a town that wants the Air Force to only assign ”whites only,”  nobody else is welcomed, a history well recorded, well verified and brutally attested to.

“In plain sight” searches are only covered in automobiles and for drugs, weapons or stolen goods, not “marriage licences.”  The simple fact that the police cover story involves, not only an illegal search but stalking, harassment and, technically, 4th degree criminal sexual conduct, better known as “window peeping,” is also at issue.

Of course, we all know nothing was seen, certainly not a document in a drawer or closet.  Imagine the qualifications needed to be a patrol officer in “Rabid City.”

  • Minimal vision:  20/03 both eyes
  • Able to read, not only upside down but through doors, walls and in the dark
  • Own step-ladder for “window peeping” needed
  • No education, morals or background checks required

Chief Alexander explained to reporters that he felt duty bound to report homosexual conduct to the Air Force.  He claimed he had an obligation to pass on “privileged information” to the Air Force, no matter if it was illegally gotten.  We have yet to hear an explanation as to why an Air Force officer would accept information from such a source, much less act on it.  There is clear culpability on the part of the Air Force command at Ellsworth Air Force Base in this travesty also.

The ACLU claims this is a simple case of police misconduct.  There is also an additional issue with the Air Force.  Airman Adam Grant, public information spokesman for Ellworth Air Force Base said Sergeant Newsome was discharged in accordance with DOD procedures set down by Secretary of Defense Robert Gates.   It is a certainty that Secretary Gates will be “redirecting” a career or two over this issue.


There is no known provision for police agencies to search the homes of military personnel for information regarding their sexual orientation.  In fact, singling out members of the military for illegal searches or harassment has an unpleasant unpatriotic aspect to it.  Some would go as far as to call it treason.  This is where more of Rapid City’s history of discrimination comes in.  This kind of behavior is nothing new in Rapid City, in fact it dates back to as early as 1942 and has been addressed by two American Presidents personally, Harry S. Truman and John F. Kennedy.  Rapid City has been this big a stain on America.

Suggestions have been made that all businesses inside the corporation limits of Rapid City, South Dakota be declared “off limits” to service personnel until members of the military can be guaranteed full citizenship rights regardless of race or sexual orientation.  We also request that all veterans consider “steering clear” of Rapid City and her business community until this problem is addressed and proper support for our armed services can be reestablished with proper rule of law.

The unwillingness of the city and their Chief of Police to abide by America’s Constitution and her laws is a good reason for the Department of Defense and the United States Air Force to begin defending their own.  Any of the commands currently at Ellsworth could be easily moved to the Selfridge facility outside Detroit.  The Michigan economy could use the boost and it might just avoid the continual need for “commissions” to investigate areas of the country that don’t seem to be able to get “with the program.”

Rapid City has a long history of anti-Indian/Native American racism with a history of literally thousands of complaints over the years.  Discrimination in housing and employment are common and Federal commissions are regularly engaged in attempts to bring the Rapid City community into compliance with laws that apply to the rest of the country.

Rapid City’s hatred of “Negroes” dates back nearly as long and was the subject of a major investigation headed by Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall in 1963.  In fact, Rapid City is infamous for being one of the most racist cities in the United States.  Here are some excerpts from that earlier report:

Statement by President Harry S. Truman:

Statement by President John F. Kennedy:


The rest of the United States has moved forward, falling in behind our laws, our tradition and our loyalty to our men and women in uniform.  This is not an issue of sexual orientation, though such things should have been behind us long ago.  Were the Airman Liz Cheney, media darling, instead of an African American, we wouldn’t be reading about it now.  The issue is race, the issue is anti-military feeling and the issue is ignorance.

It is also an issue of law and respect.

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 Wickr. Or if you need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and 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 and other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day.

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 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?
