Right-Wing Spin on How War on Terror IS NOT economically Bankrupting America

Immigration Teabaggers and Fascists

Blame Failures on UnDocumented Workers, NOT Right Wing Wars

The Fascists are the Fungus Among Us

The Wars are Cheap. It is Illegal Immigrants and Domestic Programs driving the National deficits upward. This is the message making its way across the right-wing illusion of what American should be – a fascist-racist state.

Is Iraq War and the War on Terror bankrupting us? I now find that to be RIDICULOUS!

That is the jest of this chain email message now making its way across the Right-wing, White power, anti-Immigration network. It is not the billions wasted on the wars that killed or is killing our national economy and adding to our National Deficit –  it is the billions wasted on Illegal Immigrants.

We will not debate billions being wasted on Illegal Immigrants, others can fight that battle, and we agree with throwing the bums of both parties OUT. However to focus selectively on Illegal Immigration and downplay the bloated Defense Budget which is twice the amount wasted in comparison to immigration is ludicrous.

The right-wing spin machine notes that about $338.3 billion is being wasted on everything related to Illegal Immigration while conveniently leaving out THE FACT that the amount wasted on Illegal Immigration is only about HALF the Defense Budget for FY 2010 that came to $663.8 billion.

An email with talking points is making its way around the right-wing politicos, and not necessarily Republican. The Republican breakaway Tea Party, Constitutionalists, and such do have one thing in common with the Republican Party despite claims to throw out the Republican bums now in Congress.

In response to what the Right wing knows will become a political issue come November 2010 – THE WARS – is the American people’s war weariness and billions wasted on the occupation of Iraq and War on Terror, their Ultra-Conservative strategy is to claim that the wars are affordable and that it is social programs used by Illegal Immigrants that are bankrupting America.

The message is also chuck full of racism and anti-immigration innuendo. It’s obvious that the Peace Movement must join hands with the Immigration Reform Movement in preparation for the clashes that will come.

Without addressing exactly how much the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have already cost, plus leaving the last eight years of the Bush administration in the dust of history, Right wingers now claim that the wars have not and are not bankrupting America.

Translation: Cut social programs but continue the wars, remember this next time someone asks you to vote for Ron Paul. Given Paul is a window dressing Republican and a wannabe Libertarian, he ran on a message of ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as part of Libertarian party platform, but can anyone from the right be trusted to do that. NOPE!

The answer is simple if a Presidential candidate [Obama] painted every demonizing color and with the liberal label cannot get us out of Iraq or Afghanistan what makes us think anyone from the right-wing is going to do so unless they have no other choice, the American public forces and exit strategy, or our troops simply stop deploying or fighting wars that the vast majority of Americans do not support.

This email was sent to me blind copy by a former business associate who either knows that I’m Pro-Peace and wanted to aggravate me or still thinks I’m a Republican. I don’t discourage such messages for I’m all for throwing the bums in both parties out, and on that we can agree. However, when twisting the billions wasted by the Pentagon and war profiteers to be an insignificant expenditure that do no harm to our national deficit is ludicrous.

Anyway with the November elections right around the corner, reader be prepared to be bombarded with right-wing spin convincing those of us who can still THINK that it is not WARS that cost so much but domestic programs or Obama’s socialism that doesn’t exists but in racists minds.

You think the war in Iraq is costing us too much?    Read this: A Right wing view of America’s economic meltdown.

What you will be reading below has been going on for many years and by both Parties. So if we don’t wise up and vote out all the incumbents on both sides we will be enslaved for the rest of our lives and also for our children and Grandchildren.



Informative, and mind boggling!

You think the war in Iraq is costing us too much?    Read this:

Boy was I confused.  I have been hammered with the propaganda that it is the Iraq war and the war on terror that is bankrupting us. I now find that to be  RIDICULOUS.

I hope the following 14 reasons are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them.  I also have included the URL’s for verification of all the following facts.

1. $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year by state governments. Fact Check

The reliable source used by the right-wing is the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). FAIR is an Anti-Immigration advocacy group PERIOD meaning they are not only anti-illegal immigrant, but anti-Immigration period to include a crack down on legal immigration.  

2.    $2.2 Billion dollars a year is spent on food  assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens. Fact Check

The above reliable right-wing link comes from the Center for Immigration Studies, another right-wing think tank similar to the American Enterprise Institute (AEI). Again note the emphasis is not only on illegal immigration but a crack down on legal immigration as well.

3. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens. Fact Check

Ditto above, the CIS is a right-wing think tank totally against immigration in any form except of course selective immigration quotas you can bet are based on the immigrant being white.

4. $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary and  secondary school education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of  English! Fact Check   A broken link!

5. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies. Fact Check

This source is from CNN right-wing propagandist Lou Dobbs one of a few  anti-immigration instigators while others of course can be found on Fox, Shaun Hannity, and of course the master – Rush Limbaugh.

6.   $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. Fact Check  Another broken link!

7.   30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens. Fact Check

Same biased data from Lou Dobbs’ instigation report.

8.   $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for Welfare & social services by the American taxpayers. Fact Check   Yet another broken link!

9.   $200 Billion dollars a year in suppressed American  wages are caused by the illegal  aliens. Fact Check

Yep, another broken link, these folks need to provide stronger evidence than BROKEN LINKS to source data. Point: broken links frankly prove NOTHING!

10.   The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that’s two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens.  In particular, their children are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US.  Fact Check 

From the same Lou Dobbs right-wing propaganda show on CNN.

11.  During the year of 2005 there were 4 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our Southern Border also,  as many as 19,500 illegal aliens  from Terrorist Countries.  Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin and marijuana, crossed into the U. S from the Southern border.  Fact Check at Homeland Security Report.  Yet another BROKEN LINK!

12.   The National Policy Institute, estimated that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period.  Fact Check

The National Policy Institute is a White People’s Rights think tank based out of Augusta, GA. Their racial theme is that white America is an endangered species. And we quote:

“White Americans have been led to believe that “diversity” and “multiculturalism” are sacred. We’re conditioned to be shy when it comes to standing up for our own beliefs. But doesn’t every race, ethnic subculture, and special interest—from left-handers to lesbians—have all sorts of organizations working for them? Isn’t it about time someone spoke for us? It’s not just the minority lobby who opposes our interests while advancing their own: even America’s white leaders—conservatives and liberals, Republicans and Democrats—routinely push for policies that disadvantage their own [WHITE] people.”

Is it any wonder that the Anti-Immigration Movement is spear headed by the KKK and other White Supremacists groups and white militia movement?

13.   In 2006 illegal aliens sent home $45 BILLION in remittances to their countries  of origin. Fact Check

We are amazed that they even use a left of center source, The Rense Report,  to make a point.

14.   ’The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One million sex crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants In The United States.  Fact Check


Veterans Today Editorial Comment

by Bobby Hanafin, Veterans Today

What these selective talking points fail to mention is that even taking away the Right wing spin of this message the total cost of $338.3 billion is about HALF the Defense Budget for FY 2010 that came to $663.8 billion.


If this doesn’t bother you then just delete the message.  If, on the other hand, it does raise the hair on the back of your neck, I hope you forward it to every legal resident.

Not sure why anyone wants US to forward this to every legal resident (meaning Green Card holder) when the bulk of sources used come from organizations who want to crack down on ALL IMMIGRATION!!!

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?
