Dear Senator McConnell

Dear Senator McConnell:

Recently, our past president, George W. Bush, wrote in his memoirs, Decision Points, that you met privately with him and urged the President to withdrawal troops from Iraq in September of 2006 when American casualties were mounting and there was a strong possibility that a civil insurrection between the different factions that composed the populace of the country could be taking place. Your request was valid, many of us wanted to bring our troops home as many Americans, myself included, did not want to see anymore of our military dying, injured and disfigured in a war that was based on lies.

The president went onto say the reason for your request to withdraw our troops was because you did not want to see your party take a drubbing in the upcoming mid-term elections for 2006! I firmly believe there are two sides to every story, Senator McConnell, but to the best of my knowledge, I have not heard you respond publicly to these assertions made by the president of your own political party.

If the accusations by President George W. Bush about the meeting between you and him are not true, why have you not challenged him? If they are true, Sir, then you owe an explanation to the voters, not only from Kentucky which I am one of, but to the entire country for your hypocrisy on the war in Iraq. You publicly chided the Democrats for urging troop withdrawals during this time period from Iraq, calling them the party of retreat, but then you meet privately with George W. Bush and advocate the same strategy to stave off a possible hemorrhage in the elections that would take place two months later? If this is true, Senator McConnell, I find your conduct despicable and reprehensible! Is that what the men and women of our military have become while they fight and die in Iraq and Afghanistan, pawns used to garner votes for you and your party?

Senator McConnell, you voted for the Iraq War Resolution on October 2nd, 2002, you have continuously supported that war even when there were no weapons of mass destruction found and you publicly championed the troop surge but privately want a troop withdraw to help the Republicans in an election? Do you know, Sir, the meaning of hypocrisy?


Another point of contention, Senator, for me, is your military record. Reading your biography on the Internet, Senator McConnell, there seems to be some confusion about the reasons you did not serve during the height of the Vietnam War, my war and the war for 2.7 million other Americans that answered their country’s call to fight communism. Some of your staff have said you had polio as a child and/or optic neuritis but yet you joined the 100th Division, an Army Reserve in Kentucky in 1967.  My question is why did you join an Army Reserve Unit whose chances of going to Vietnam were “slim and next to none” when you could have joined the regular Army and volunteered to fight in Vietnam? That is what I did, Senator, I joined the United States Army and requested duty in South Vietnam while living in Kentucky because our country was trying to stop the “red menace.” There were many other Americans that volunteered for duty in South Vietnam too, Senator McConnell, like me, it was important to them to answer our country’s call for military duty to help defend our Southeast Asia ally.

Did Senator John Sherman Cooper (R-KY) at that time, you were a former intern for his office, write a letter to the commanding general of Fort Knox where you were stationed, Major General A.D. Surles, asking him to expedite your release from the 100th Division so you could attend New York University (NYU)? What I don’t understand, Sir, is why, after earning a Bachelor’s Degree and Law Degree that you would want to attend NYU. According to what I have read, NYU has no record of you ever applying to their school, much less attending. How did you manage to get out of the Army Reserves without ever having gone through the training?

In closing, Senator McConnell, it looks as though you took the easy way out when it came to represent our country in a military uniform and, unfortunately, there are many politicians like you on Capitol Hill that came of age during the Vietnam War but failed to serve. Did you or did you not purportedly say about troops withdraws from Iraq what former President George W Bush contends in his new book? Did Senator John Sherman Cooper write a letter to the commanding general of Fort Knox wanting your release from the armed forces expedited so you could attend NYU? Why would you want to attend NYU when you already had a Bachelor’s and Law Degree? Why join the Army Reserves in the first place when our country was at war and needed you in Vietnam like the other 2.7 million Americans that served in that war?

I write for an online veteran publication, Senator McConnell, VETERANS TODAY, my letter to you and your reply will be posted in my column as there are many veterans and their supporters who would like answers for the questions I have submitted to you.

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?
