Despite your claims and twisting of the truth, Mr. Murdoch, the threats faced today are not “part of an ongoing war against the Jews.” The threat is the fear mongering which supports your war mongering.

By Paul Balles — Veterans Today

Rupert Murdoch the warmonger encouraged George W. Bush’s maniacal killing spree in Iraq. He convinced Tony Blair to support Bush’s madness.

Murdoch the fear monger campaigns on two fronts: to instil holocaust fears in Jews and fear of retribution and guilt in critics of Israel.

Popular news commentator Keith Olbermann of MSNBC’s nightly programme Countdown once dubbed Australian-born American media magnate Rupert Murdoch “the worst person in the world.”

Founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of News Corporation, Murdoch owns, among other things, television’s Fox News.

Fox is the TV channel that currently provides a platform for “crazies” and white supremacists like Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly.

Fox, the News Corp, Murdoch and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) have been the worst conceivable agents of deception.

In a recent speech at an (ADL) dinner, Murdoch lauds the founding of the ADL “against the backdrop of the conviction and then lynching of an innocent Jew.”

Fear mongering the public attitude that leads to holocausts. How does he do this? He says, “In the century since then, you have fought anti-Semitism wherever you have found it.”

Remember, the message conveys, it was anti-Semitism that supported the Hitlerian hatred of Jews.

Building on the theme, Murdoch uses the magical term anti-Semitism 14 times in his speech.  Shades of Hitlerian tactics visit the ADL.

“Not a single person in the room needs a lecture on the evil of anti-Semitism” Murdoch reminds his audience.

Not enough fear-mongering in that? Murdoch adds a clincher: “We live in a world where there is an ongoing war against the Jews.”

Need to arouse more fear among your Jewish audience? Shift from generalized anti-Semitism to “terrorism” and “terrorists”.

“Phase two” Murdoch called it. “Israelis targeted both at home and abroad…The terrorists continue to target Jews across the world.”

Not enough fear aroused yet? “The media…multinational organizations …NGOs” aim to “make Israel a pariah.”

To cap his deceptive campaign off, Murdoch groans that “Israel becomes increasingly ostracized, while Iran–a nation that has made no secret of wishing Israel’s destruction–pursues nuclear weapons loudly, proudly, and without apparent fear of rebuke.”

If his audience believe the lie about Iran loudly and proudly pursuing nuclear weapons, the propaganda machine has been working overtime.

The fear mongering comment omitted any truth-telling about the only country in the Middle East that has pursued, built and stockpiled nuclear weapons in well-known silence–Israel.

“Every day,” lies Murdoch, “[Israelis] defend themselves against armies of terrorists.”

If that doesn’t arouse enough fear in his Jewish audience, he adds, US “foreign policy sometimes emboldens these extremists.”

Warmongering requires more, and Murdoch knows it.  He aims to silence liberals who he claims are responsible for “the most virulent anti-Semitism” today.

“Often,” he augurs, “this new anti-Semitism dresses itself up as legitimate disagreement with Israel.”

Anyone, right, left or centre who dares to criticise Israel will be branded anti-Semitic.

Murdoch would stop any complaints about Israel decimating Lebanon or destroying Gaza or developing illegal settlements in land stolen from Palestinians.

About Lebanon’s decimation, the war ended with Israel’s withdrawal from Lebanon.

Many Jews were not satisfied with that outcome and accused Prime Minister Ehud Olmert of losing the war.

However, when Olmert appeared before the Knesset’s’ Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee, he stated “The claim that we lost is unfounded.  Half of Lebanon is destroyed; is that a loss?”

If Murdoch had his way, to report or comment on this arrogant boast, coming from an Israeli Prime Minister’s mouth, would be dubbed anti-Semitism.

Following a number of swipes at European anti-Semitism, taking specific aim at Norway, Sweden, Britain, Spain and the Netherlands, Murdoch takes aim at Muslims.

He complains, “In Europe today, some of the most egregious attacks on Jewish people, Jewish symbols and Jewish houses of worship have come from the Muslim population.”

Murdoch then bemoans a Swedish mayor’s suggestion that “Jews and Israel were partly to blame themselves.”

By far Murdoch’s most ludicrous argument is that “some Americans have suggested that Washington needs to put some distance between itself and Israel” in order “to gain credibility in the Muslim world.”

His argument?  This would make “hostilities more certain” and “the peace we all want will come when Israel feels secure.”

In Murdoch’s corral, to critique that comment would amount to anti-Semitism.

Finally, the supreme warmonger gets down to war as he sees it. “Right now we have war” he says.

“There are many people waging this war.  Some blow up cafes.” Eh? When was the last time someone blew up a cafe? How many years of Israeli terrorism did it take before a Palestinian blew himself up to send a message to the world?

In the current “war” seen by Murdoch, “some fire rockets into civilian areas.” This wouldn’t be the insignificant responses out of Gaza and Southern Lebanon to Israel’s military might.

Remember Olmert’s boast: “Half of Lebanon is destroyed; is that a loss?” Or is Murdoch referring to the piddling rockets fired from Gaza into land stolen from the Palestinians.

“Some are pursuing nuclear arms,” says Murdoch of the current war. This, of course, is the prime target of Murdoch’s fear and warmongering.

“Bomb, bomb, bomb” as that other infamous warmonger Senator John McCain urged for Iran. This would provide the penultimate pleasure for Israel, the ADL and Murdoch.

Dr. Lawrence Britt, referring to fascist regimes wrote, “The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial, ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.”

Murdoch would eliminate Muslims, wherever possible, Palestinians, who he portrays as terrorists by nature, critics of Israel, who are anti-Semitic because they’re critics, and Iran, who wants nuclear power that represents an “existential threat” to Israel.

Despite your claims and twisting of the truth, Mr. Murdoch, the threats faced today are not “part of an ongoing war against the Jews.” The threat is the fear mongering which supports your war mongering.

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?
