Set em’ up and knock em’ down!

I have really got to ask the Southern Poverty Law Center something?  Who is this list supposed to scare, anyway?

The SPLC lists Catherine Bleish as a dangerous patriot.

Ya’ll know what I’m talking about, right?  Your scathing six page report entitled: ‘Meet the Patriots’—I mean, come on, even the title of this thing is a joke.  You know that all of those geriatric grandmothers, whom you hit up for donations each year, are going to confuse this with the sequel to that Ben Stiller movie, don’t you?

Forgive my sarcasm, but I just can’t help but rub your nose in it.  You have seriously gone off the deep end with this one.  Even you must have had a hard time keeping a straight face when you put this thing together.

Here’s a tip: If you’re going to compile a compendium of frightening, right-wing extremists who pose a serious threat to national security, you’d better have some frightening, right-wing extremists to use as examples.  Wheres the evidence of this terrifying militia movement that you say is spreading like wildfire across America?  Do you mean to tell me that you couldn’t come up with even one real life ‘Patriot’ posing the kinds of exaggerated threats that you’ve been propagating to your semi-captive audience of police professionals?  I would have at least expected to find someone like this among your cast of villains:

‘The Terror From Tucson’

Klauss Bruenner, 29

Klauss is an Iraq War Veteran who served in the Special Forces.  There, he became sympathetic with Al-Qaeda and actually played chess with Osama Bin Laden.  Upon returning from duty, he and several hundred of his ‘Patriots’ migrated to the Arizona Desert and built an impenetrable underground fortress.  From there, he and his army launched a killing spree, slaughtering dozens of illegal aliens with flamethrowers and grenade launchers.  He and his gang have also murdered four police officers during a robbery at a Burger King in Tempe.  He’s still at large, but sources say he’s on his way to Atlanta to attend a Tea Party function hosted by Sarah Palin.

Couldn’t find anyone like that, huh?  Right!  That’s because they don’t exist.  No one like that exists.  And if they did, they wouldn’t be accepted into the “real” Patriot movement—and you know it!

So instead of radical domestic terrorists, we find people like this among your cast of villains:

‘Needle of Estrogen’

Catherine Bleish, 26

Catherine Bleish, one of the few female leaders in the resurgent Patriot movement, runs the Liberty Restoration Project and has become a popular speaker on the Patriot circuit. “It’s quite frightening the amount of power and authority that our government has assumed for themselves,” Bleish told the Intelligence Report. “They say, ‘We are the Supreme Being, we have the guns, we are going to do it our way.’” Bleish, of St. Louis, Mo., speaks passionately about the anger that’s fueling the movement. “It’s so hard to start a small business, and once you start one, it’s hard to keep it open. My parents are being audited for the past six years, while [Treasury Secretary] Tim Geithner, who doesn’t pay his taxes, now gets to oversee the IRS,” she said. “People are losing their homes. People are losing their jobs. People are frustrated and looking for answers.”

My, God!  Lock this woman up!  Or how about this evildoer:

‘Bulldozer vs. Bulldozer’

Martin “Red” Beckman, 80

In 1984, when Martin J. “Red” Beckman ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in New Hampshire’s famously wide-open primary, he billed himself as “Montana’s fighting redhead.” By that time, he had been battling the IRS for 10 years. Sometimes called the “Father of the Patriot Movement,” Beckman gained a measure of fame within the anti-tax militia movement for refusing to pay more than $100,000 in income taxes and $34,000 in property taxes, contending that U.S. tax laws are illegal.

I guess the moniker of ‘Bulldozer’ is supposed to strike fear in the minds of police as they keep on the look out for this Wiley, 80 year old madman.

Over half of the ‘Patriots’ you list in your report are senior citizens, some with serious health problems.  The others are bloggers, columnists, filmmakers and radio talk show hosts.  Not quite the ensemble of violent, radical, militarized miscreants we were expecting.  That tells me one thing: You don’t consider any of these people on your list as a physical threat.  However, you do consider them to be an intellectual threat.  All of these people are engaged in the process of disseminating information that you don’t want the American people to know.  That’s the threat…and that’s the only threat.

Let’s get serious, folks.  It’s a sad day in America when the word ‘Patriot’ is used as a derogatory slur.  The last time this happened was during the American Revolution when the British Crown considered Patriots to be seditious, rebellious criminals.  Today that same connotation has made its resurgence among certain leftist organizations, the media and even among elements within the United States government.  One might argue that the Patriots of old had it easy compared to their modern day counterparts.  In addition to being characterized as seditious, rebellious criminals, today’s Patriots find themselves defending against accusations of racism, xenophobia, links to international terrorist organizations and other rhetoric designed to demonize them in the minds of the American people.

A recent Southern Poverty Law Center publication entitled  ‘Meet the Patriots’ as well as documents like the now notorious MIAC report have all been used to propagate these myths.  Those of us who know better could easily dismiss such blather.  Unfortunately, these fictions are being disseminated to law enforcement agencies disguised as fact.  This shouldn’t be taken lightly.

Today’s law enforcement is being indoctrinated to carry out political missions on behalf of powerful and wealthy special interests.  This is dangerous, not only for the peaceful activist who is being unjustly stereotyped, but also for the nation as a whole.  Misleading our police, and sending them on wild goose chases, not only exhausts their resources but also diverts their attention away from real, tangible threats.

In its November, 2000 issue, Harper’s Magazine ran an article by Ken Silverstein entitled ‘The Church of Morris Dees.’ In that article he writes “The Ku Klux Klan, the SPLC’s most lucrative nemesis, has shrunk from 4 million members in the 1920s to an estimated 2,000 today, as many as 10 percent of whom are thought to be FBI informants.

But news of a declining Klan does not make for inclining donations to Morris Dees and Co., which is why the SPLC honors nearly every nationally covered “hate crime” with direct-mail alarums full of nightmarish invocations of “armed Klan paramilitary forces” and “violent neo-Nazi extremists,” and why Dees does legal battle almost exclusively with mediagenic villains-like Idaho’s arch-Aryan Richard Butler-eager to show off their swastikas for the news cameras.”

Later in the article, Silverstein writes “The SPLC’s “other important work justice” consists mainly in spying on private citizens who belong to “hate groups,” sharing its files with law-enforcement agencies, and suing the most prominent of these groups for crimes committed independently by their members-a practice that, however seemingly justified, should give civil libertarians pause.”

It should come as no surprise then why the SPLC has chosen to target the Patriot movement.  The Patriot movement is seen as a big, fat milk cow ready to take the place of the dwindling, increasingly irrelevant white supremacist organizations that they have nearly sued out of existence.  As the article above relates, the SPLC sues groups for crimes committed independently by their members.  Now you’ll understand why we constantly find groups being infiltrated by provocateurs.  Just one rogue individual led astray and coaxed into illegal activity by one of these moles could be enough to destroy and bankrupt an entire group and all of it’s members.  Does the name Hutaree come to mind?  Hal Turner, anyone?

Characterizing, or lumping Patriots in with violent white supremacists has a duel effect in the SPLC’s fund raising campaigns.  Even a Liberal journalist like Alexander Cockburn has accused the SPLC of “frightening elderly liberals that the heirs of Adolf Hitler are about to march down Main Street.”

They may be able to fool little old ladies, but I’m confident (perhaps wishful thinking) that our police will see through this latest rouse by the SPLC.  Skinheads, white supremacists and neo-Nazis are one thing, but when police are told to be on the look out for constitutionalists, Christians, 2nd amendment advocates and returning veterans, they’re pretty much describing most police officers—and that doesn’t fly.  I know this from personal experience.  But if you want a window into the mind of most police, I would invite you to visit some of the more prominent police forums.  There you will find an overwhelming majority of officers who are opposed to Barrack Obama, Janet Napolitano, health care legislation, Wall Street bail-outs and other issues that the SPLC would have you believe are indicative of right wing radicalism.  Hell, I even saw a few avatars sporting the Obama-Joker motif.

But of course there are those (mostly young recruits) who are eager to follow any order no matter how ridiculous, and are too naïve to realize that they are being used to enforce a political agenda.  These are the boys (and girls) you see with their trembling hand clutched to their 9mm as they cautiously approach the passenger’s side window of an elderly woman’s Buick simply because she had a ‘Chuck Baldwin’ sticker on her bumper.

And there are still other examples of police who ought to know better or who may have simply lost their moral compass.

In 2001, months prior to the attacks on the World Trade Center, a FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Administration) representative addressed a group of local Oklahoma police officers in a classroom setting and asked them “Who was the first terrorist organization in the United States?”

Several of those in the room responded with “The Founding Fathers.”

“The Founding Fathers?  You mean, Thomas Jefferson?  You mean, George Washington?  You mean, Paul Revere?”

“Oh, yes!…Oh, yes!…Oh, yes!” was the reply from the officers as each name was called out.

The FEMA representative went on to characterize the founders as violent extremists, terrorists and assassins and went on to say “The guys we call our Founding Fathers—George Washington, Mr. Honest who cut down the cherry tree—is the same guy who signed death warrants of the British government, of the British Crown, who they wanted to eliminate because they had influence in certain pockets of the United States (at that time the 13 colonies) and they wanted to divide and conquer.”

Yeah, well, when you read things like that you start to wonder if maybe it is wishful thinking to assume that our police are going to come around and do the right thing.  But we have to think that way, because the alternative is just too frightening to imagine.  Let’s all just hope that George Orwell was wrong when he said:

“If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.”

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?
