Gordon Duff: Road Trip Musings


By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor

Fewer Americans travel anymore, mostly because they are flat broke.  It doesn’t take a genius to figure out the airlines are at war with their employees, passengers too.  Planes are filthy and food inedible.  Still, I would have Americans travel to Europe, at first anyway.  Millions of Americans served in the military in Europe and many are there still.  We left our stamp there, signs of Americanized culture everywhere, everywhere except in the endless thousands of pay toilets across Germany.  When are they going to get a grip over there?

There are some clear differences in Europe that make travel worthwhile.  Maybe the best thing was the perfect brat(wurst)  I had in Trier a couple of days ago.  Trier is a German town near the Luxembourg border.  It is right off the Mosel, a hundred miles of castles and wineries, and has a rich history, a German town filled with Roman ruins.  I usually spend Christmas in Germany.  With kids grown up, it is like stepping into the past, more like the childhood I remember from the 50s.  Germans know Christmas.  Even the smallest towns have nightly Christmas Markets and month long celebrations.  The cities, like Nuremberg, Berlin or Munich party from November 17 onward.  It is Germany but it feels uniquely American, not the place we live now, the video game and shopping mall America but like something, maybe a real memory, I am not sure. but something we had lost somewhere.

Early on I will voice a dangerous opinion.  There is no reason for there to be an EU as it exists.  Canada and the US along with Germany, the UK, France, Italy, the Netherlands and other EU members should probably share a currency and a common political leadership.  Germany is more “mainstream America” than half our states.  The world has changed.  Its more than that, though.  Going our separate ways has led to failure.

Last week, the Euro collapsed.  I saw it coming.  The Euro used to be 67 cents.  Then it became 1.67.  It still spent like a quarter and bought nothing.  It was and is an empty paper currency filled with hot air.  Americans should know all about that.  We call them “debt based currencies” and they are a bad thing.  Explaining that here would make you go away.  I will stop.

I believe America and even Europe would have alot to gain from giving up our failed attempts at autonomy.  With all our TV and nuclear weapons, America is a failure, enslaved in war, economically screwed and kicked to death by financial scamsters.  Europe is much the same way, some ways better, some ways worse.  We need to balance out things, America has become too crazy to live and is, thusly, dying.  We are watching it and know it. 

Few Americans know about France, other than it has several cities with large Islamic populations, much like Detroit or Los Angeles.  France is cool.  Any American could move into any French village, knowing nothing of the language and culture and feel more at home there than in the US in a week.  French all hate their government, hate every religion and will tell you about it at the drop of a hat.  I love that.  Mind you, they still elect total idiots, just like we do but they hate them even quicker.  It takes us a week, they do it in minutes.

I spent a week driving around the UK, staying at RAF Croughton and RAF Fairford, two bases with Air Force Lodges.  I take this opportunity to thank the US Air Force for their gracious hospitality.

Along with the hundreds of miles of “wrong side of the road” driving, looking for obscure historical sites to take pictures of, as I am in the UK pretty often, I also spent a day with one of my friends from college.  This is a well known historian, so I will leave off the name.  He gets enough credit already.  This is someone I had not seen in many years, born in Pakistan with a PhD from an American university but a Brit for decades.  He and his wife drove out to Fairford, a beautiful town in the Cotswolds about 30 miles from Oxford.  My wife and I followed them back and weaved through the traffic jams and tiny streets of Oxford, parking in front of their home directly adjacent to one of the 38 colleges that make up the university there.

Lunch was at “The Trout,” a pub on the Thames River featured in the Inspector Morse TV series with John Thaw.  I am a big John Thaw fan.  I recommend the place, and will have to put that in TripAdvisor.  Good food in Britain is not so easy to find, unless you find a “chip shop” with a line out the door.

Much of the afternoon was spent walking around Oxford, in and out of places they would never let me into otherwise.  It is a college but also more, you can smell the money a mile away.  Its an odd combination of real students and “Bush at Yale” types, if you get my meaning. 

Family was brought in from across Britain to see the crazed college roommate and infamous “defense journalist.”  Britain has a huge population of immigrants, Pakistan, India and any other former British possession.  Frankly, though many have lived in Britain all their lives, America treats illegal aliens better.  I am here with what would normally be the highest strata of British society short of peerage, a family of well educated, extremely successful people who are totally British, even a bit “posh” and we begin to talk.”

“They hate us here.”  This was my friend’s wife, a bit of a force of nature and in no way what any American would imagine of an Islamic woman.  There was never any bitterness but clearly disappointment.  I had been told earlier about airport problems coming in and out of the United States for conferences.  This is a well know academic, one of the most published experts on security issues in the world, frankly someone whose work is and has been vital to American policymakers for some time and he can’t get in and out of the country he was educated in.

I thought to myself, “Perhaps if you could get on a “no fly list” you could pop in and out of America easily like the terrorists do.” 

OK, I actually said it, probably half a dozen times.  “Faisal the Fizzler” flew back and forth from the US to Pakistan 16 times without a seconds difficulty.  I have a Pakistani visa in my passport, tucked in next to my DOD identification and get questioned every time I get near an airport.  What a nation of liars we are!

Whenever I think of the “dancing Israelis” with their cameras set up, waiting to film planes crashing into the twin towers, then cavorting around the streets, “high five’ing” each other, only to be arrested, released and flown back to Israel on a special flight under the personal orders of the President of the United States….


Like we don’t all know how terrorists get in and out and who does it.  It took less than a day to debunk the “crotch bomber.”  They killed that investigation immediately as soon as it got hung around the neck of “that special country.”

We are still arresting Pakistanis though the “Time Square Fizzler” is being tied to a CIA/Mossad/India operation in the FATA region of Pakistan.  Embarrassed members of Pakistan’s security services have been leaking the evidence on the internet.  Ah, but I digress. …

Frankly, I believe 95% of the terrorist news we hear is manure, but hell, what would I know.  I wonder how news hacks for the phony press can live with themselves.

I am supposed to be driving around taking photos of churchyards and castles.  Last summer I drove up to Hadrian’s Wall and then into Scotland.  I recommend this to anyone although 8 buck a gallon gas is painful and nothing is cheap up there.  The Duff (MacDuff) part of the family is from there, all cattle thieves, smugglers and buggers I am told, 1100 years of family history, all bad.

What we all lose is our commonality, the things that make us all human, all the same.  When I think about it, and I travel everywhere around the world, the only “bad people” I run into are on TV shows.  Every crazed murdering Vietnam veteran, every murderous Islamic terrorist, every “welfare Cadillac” fraudster is a TV character, someone I have been conditioned to hate based on, what I now know to be the political needs of people who hate me, hate America and wish we were all dead.

If only I were overstated what I have learned…

Today we have kids, tourists in uniform with guns, sitting down with people in Afghanistan.  They could just as easily be shooting at each other or drinking tea.  The difference is face to face contact and human respect. 

What does this mean?  Simple.  It means that all wars are economic games started by banksters and their puppet governments, yes Mr. Obama, useless wastes of lives and human energy that accomplish nothing except the destruction of everyone they touch, everyone except for the rich.  All wars are class wars, wars are held by the powerful who watch the poor suffer and die while they rake in money.  Think Smedley Butler.

I am almost ready to say that World War 2 could be prevented.  As we declassify documents and the truth leaks out, the myth of the war begins to fall apart.  A hundred million people may have died and much of the insanity that started the war wasn’t just Germany and Japan.  I have some personal prejudice.  I spend alot of time in Germany.  It is hard to imagine fighting them.  I think of the people I drink beer with, play with and try to picture them as we are told.  It seems impossible.

Then I think of rendition and Gitmo and see Americans doing exactly the same things.  Then I think of Gaza.  Nobody is immune from the disease it seems.

So, do we stick ourselves together in one big country?  Which countries do we let in?  We have to leave Greece out, of course.  They are a financial nightmare and they don’t even have a Federal Reserve to sell them their money at interest, interest paid to “foreign” banks.  Actually, when I compare them, they seem like financial geniuses compared to us.  They owe next to nothing.

Here’s a way to look at things.  Picture all the people that TV tells you to hate.  We aren’t going to discuss who runs TV, you can guess where that will go.  Now picture their children.  See a child 5 years old, you know, like one in the photos you always see dead somewhere, Gaza, Afghanistan, Mexico, Rwanda, Iraq or wherever.  Tell that child you want them to die because they are evil.  Explain to them that you hate them because you saw a story on TV that showed people like he would grow up to be acting badly.

Of course, the TV story was written, produced and directed by drugged out moral degenerates you would never allow within a hundred feet of your own kids, much less your pets, but we let “these people” decide how we think.

Picture how TV tells you to think and feel and tell me if you could have been a guard at Auschwitz.  Be honest now.

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?
