The people of Yemen simply don’t believe in Al Qaeda or Osama bin Laden, and for good reason.  When Abdullah al-Faqih, professor of political science at Sana University told the New York Times, “We cannot differentiate between what is propaganda and what is real…Some of what looks like Al Qaeda is really terror as a business.”  With early news stories being continually contradicted, bombs that weren’t really bombs heading out on flights that never existed, carrying packages for companies that don’t service Yemen, all heading for Chicago synagogues, part of the wildest “persecution complex” of all time, the whole “Al Qaeda/Yemen” thing has been little more than a “borscht belt” comedy act.
Can we blame President Obama if he got some political mileage out of it before it became so outlandish that a new “Al Qaeda cell” had to take responsibility. Funniest of all was the supposed “Al Qaeda” statement that is clearly part of the long debunked synagogue attack fantasy;

“God has exposed you and showed the world that you are nothing but treacherous agents to the Jews because these bomb packages were headed to Jewish-Zionist temples, and you had to intervene with your treacherous ways to protect them, so may God curse you for being the oppressors.”

Such announcements, as with phony bin Laden tapes, are always a last ditch attempt to put life in a story gone bad.  As with the former videos, now audio tapes, these mysterious announcements are sold to the media and congressional groups by the same Israeli company that “finds them on the internet” on sites that no other news organization or intelligence agency has access to.  As they always serve “Islamophobic” rabble rousing and scare tactics meant to keep the American public’s focus away from issues of political corruption, they are never examined or questioned.

Could manipulating threats against Jews in America serve Israeli interests?

Every scenario plays the same, as with this announcement, more calls for attacks on America and not a single word mentioned about Israel, the traditional target of all Islamic extremist groups.  This announcement, like so many before it including Adam “Perlman” Gadahn’s most recent, call for attacks on America.  Though this one mentions Jews, its language, “so may G-d curse you for being the oppressors” calls for attacks on America only, not Israel.  Could anything be more obvious?

When Arnaud de Borchgrave of UPI and the Washington Times announced Osama bin Laden was “dead as Elvis,” he knew there would be a reaction.  The “bin Laden industry,” making and selling bin Laden tapes to American buyers hungry for any excuse to bilk the public out of more money for the imaginary “war on terror” had run its course.  When the real bin Laden died in 2001, the videos, short bin Laden’s, fat bin Ladens, festooned like department store Santas, were debunked one by one, despite attempts by the US State Department and Homeland Security to exploit them.

Eventually, the CIA put a stop to this when Director Leon Panetta hinted at bin Laden’s demise in 2001 stating that there had been “no known sightings” since that time.Phony intelligence reports had bin Laden driving around Afghanistan on a personal appearance tour the week before.  Not long after, newspapers attacked Iran claiming bin Laden was living in luxury there while other rumors said he was being protected by the Iranian community in Los Angeles.

As phony bin Laden videos gave way to quickly debunked audio tapes, still flowing out of Israel on a near weekly basis, “Al Qaeda,” the conveniently created terrorist organization meant to justify the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq magically relocated to Yemen.  However, not everyone is buying that.  A November 3, 2010 New York Times report stated:

As Yemen intensifies its military campaign against Al Qaeda’s regional arm, it faces a serious obstacle: most Yemenis consider the group a myth, or a ploy by their president to squeeze the West for aid money and punish his domestic opponents.  “What is Al Qaeda? The truth is there is no Al Qaeda,” said Lutfi Muhammad, a weary-looking unemployed 50-year-old walking through this city’s tumultuous Tahrir Square.

Instead, he said, the violence is “because of the regime and the lack of stability and the internal struggles.”…The Yemeni government has used jihadists as proxy soldiers in the past, and sometimes conflates the Qaeda threat and the unrelated political insurgencies it has fought in northern and southern Yemen in recent years.

… many Yemenis seem doubtful that Al Qaeda was guilty in all or even most of those killings, which took place in the same southern parts of the country where a secessionist movement has been growing for the past three years.

“We cannot differentiate between what is propaganda and what is real,” said Abdullah al-Faqih, a professor of political science at Sana University. “It’s impossible to tell who is killing who; you have tribal feuds, Al Qaeda and the Southern Movement, and the state is doing a lot of manipulation.”

“Some of what looks like Al Qaeda is really terror as a business,” Mr. Faqih said.

With the government of Yemen fully invested in bin Laden tapes and the influx of cash tied to hunting down the mysterious and illusory “Al Qaeda,” the convenient terror organization that can make the difference between asking money to fight a civil war or crush local political opponents or, the second you scream “Al Qaeda,” Israel has their worldwide network of newspapers repeating your every word, American drone aircraft are suddenly overhead ready to kill of your pesky mother-in-law or the guy who stole your highschool sweetheart.

This is how it all started in Afghanistan and is still going strong to this day, the “Al Qaeda card” being played when “government approved” drug kingpins want to crush competition.  It was also a totally fabricated Al Qaeda, a fact long proven, that put America into Iraq and 5000 American soldiers into an early grave.

In fact, the position the government of Yemen now holds is amazing considering they were of the opposite belief only two years ago.  Is there a wonder the people of Yemen believe they are being scammed?  From a BBC report on October 7, 2008:

Yemen seizes ‘Israel-linked’ cell

Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh has said the security forces have arrested a group of alleged Islamist militants linked to Israeli intelligence. Mr Saleh did not say what evidence had been found to show the group’s links with Israel, a regional enemy of Yemen.

The arrests were connected with an attack on the US embassy in Sanaa last month which killed at least 18 people, official sources were quoted saying……

“A terrorist cell was arrested and will be referred to the judicial authorities for its links with the Israeli intelligence services,” Mr Saleh told a gathering at al-Mukalla University in Hadramawt province.”Details of the trial will be announced later. You will hear about what goes on in the proceedings,” he added.

The 17 September attack was the second to target the US embassy since April. Militants detonated car bombs before firing rockets at the heavily fortified building.

Mr Saleh did not identify the suspects, but official sources were quoted saying it was same cell – led by a militant called Abu al-Ghaith al-Yamani – whose arrest was announced a week after the attack……


The 2010 election in America is the most expensive in history, costing well over $1 billion.  With the elimination of most controls on election spending, a massive influx of foreign capital, almost all untraceable even under United Nations money-laundering conventions, combined with millions from Israeli sources such as media mogul Rupert Murdoch, managed to take control of the US House of Representatives and almost took the US Senate.  It is very possible that the phony terror scare may have been all that saved the last shred of President Obama’s influence in American government.

Despite discussions of “smaller government” and “lowering taxes,” many political experts in the United States saw the election, not as a referendum on approval or disapproval of any policy but rather a clear demonstration of the ability of foreign capital to flex its muscle in the American political arena using little more than cash, innuendo and broad coordination of controlled media resources, “spin” and suppression of  positive news coverage of President Obama and his agenda and accomplishments.


A cursory examination of the UPS website shows that the company doesn’t service Yemen.  In addition, the Yemen Post reported the following confirmations;

Mohammed al-Shaibah, Air Cargo Director for Yemenia Airways said to Yemen Post, “No UPS cargo plane left Yemeni lands over the land 48 hours. These accusations are false and baseless.
He added, “No UPS or DHL cargo packages heading to Chicago through Yemen took place in the last 48 hours as well.”

“All packages are checked very carefully in Yemen, and there is no evidence to prove that this package came through Yemen.”

CNN reported the suspicious package, which contained a “manipulated” toner cartridge, tested negative for explosive material, the source said, but it led to heightened inspection of arriving cargo flights in Newark, New Jersey, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and a UPS truck in New York.

Additionally, Press TV, reporting from Dubai, carried a government denial that any packages from Yemen left the United Arab Emirates for the United States;

Fighter jets were scrambled on Friday to accompany an Emirates plane into New York’s JFK airport after a security alert, US media reported.  Emirati authorities, however, said flight 201 carried no ‘suspicious’ cargo from Yemen as claimed by US-Canadian military agency NORAD.  UAE officials rejected the claim and said the plane was not a source of threat.

“The Emirates plane that arrived today in the United States from Dubai did not contain any packages from Yemen,
” the official Emirati WAM news agency quoted an unnamed source with the country’s civil aviation body as saying.

North American military agency caused a media hype after it reported the suspicious flight.


With American jets scrambled, Chicago synagogues terrorized and US backed troops heading into secessionist regions of Yemen searching for “Al Qaeda” terrorists in a thinly veiled ruse for a tribal crackdown, irresponsible and complicit news media working hand in hand with intelligence agencies, both American and “other,” have managed to manufacture more of the subterfuge required to maintain a continual flow of unverifiable threats from Yemen.  It has become clear that, with adequate incentives, the government of Yemen will be willing to repackage their internal divisions to appear as terrorism “on demand.”

This will help keep America’s focus on the region will post-election political maneuvering is likely to stress a more aggressive policy toward Iran, pre-staging an attack in the spring, a response to, well, we can only wait and see.

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?
