Obamanoid Coffee Party Event A Flop Despite Vigorous Corporate Media Coverage 150310top2

The phony astroturf Obamanoid Coffee Party national event this past weekend turned out to be a complete flop, despite vigorous promotion on behalf of the corporate media, with just handfuls of people showing up to meetings in major cities.

As we reported last week, despite nearly a year of demonizing the Tea Party as little more than an umbrella for racist extremists, CNN and the rest of the establishment media lavished the Coffee Party with favorable coverage in anticipation of National Coffee Party Day, which was held on March 13th.

The difference in treatment was undoubtedly explained by the fact that the Coffee Party was founded by an Obama campaign operative, Annabel Park, who campaigned for Obama in 2008 and was one of the organizers and operators of the influential United for Obama video channel at YouTube. Park was also a former strategy analyst at the New York Times, another establishment mouthpiece that afforded the Coffee Party sympathetic coverage.

Claiming to represent a grass roots alternative to the Tea Party, which has to a large extent been hijacked by neo-cons, the Coffee Party is little more than an attempt to re-energize the Obamanoid base behind big government and socialism. A video presentation by Park provides few clues as to what the Coffee Party actually stands for apart from limitless immigration and putting unwarranted trust in government.

However, despite the best efforts of the establishment to portray the Coffee Party as a viable rival to the Tea Party, the numbers just don’t add up.

“Despite a news-media buildup over the past few weeks from CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, National Public Radio, Washington Post, Seattle Times and dozens of other outlets, the estimated 350 coffee houses hosting events around the country today welcomed mostly miniscule crowds,” reports World Net Daily.

WND quotes a CNN article which asked, “Will the Coffee Party rise to the scale of the Tea Party movement? Saturday is the first big test.”

With the Tea Party receiving virtually no mainstream media coverage aside from hostile dismissal, the September 12 event in Washington DC was attended by at least 500,000 and some estimates say up to a million people. This followed an April 15 tax day national Tea Party campaign which attracted people to gatherings of varying size in nearly 2,000 different cities.

The video below shows a time lapse of the September 12 Tea Party DC march, illustrating how well attended the event was.

“Over the summer, tea partiers packed health-care town halls by the hundreds, overflowing venues and leading to lines running around the block,” reports WND.

In comparison, the national Coffee Party event, even with the aid of saturation corporate media coverage, attracted mere handfuls to gatherings held in major cities.

Alex Pappas visited a gathering in Washington DC, “only to find a small gathering of five activists huddled at a small table.”

Pappas said that the participants were vague on what they actually stood for (a telltale sign that this is not a true grass roots movement), apart from a belief in massive uncontrolled immigration policies.

“They spoke mostly in generalities — not diving into the specifics of policy or really asserting positions on any topic — about health care, energy, poverty and climate change, though one participant said he feels strongly about immigration reform, explaining “everyone should live where they want to live,” writes Pappas.

Even the larger public gatherings which were covered by CNN news crews attracted no more than 50 people.

“According to numbers posted on The Coffee Party USA website, it appears most crowds numbered fewer than 20,” reports WND.

San Francisco got 15 attendees, Blacksburg, Va., lists 6, while the coffee party at Hyde Park in Chicago was attended by just three people.

The failure of the corporate media to drum up interest in the Coffee Party not only illustrates the declining influence of establishment news outlets, it also serves as a testament to Americans’ ability to distinguish genuine grass roots movements, which is how the Tea Party began nearly three years ago as an evolution of the End the Fed movement before it was infiltrated by Republicans, from phony astroturf contrivances like the Obamanoid Coffee Party, a movement with seemingly no purpose aside from acting as a vehicle through which the establishment is attempting, and evidently failing, to restore blind obedience in big government.

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?
