Military Religious Freedom Group Victorious at Air Force Academy

Air Force Academy

Military Religious Freedom Foundation’s Demand Finally Met by Air Force Academy; Freedom of Information Act requests force Air Force Academy to release “Climate Survey” on religious bigotry

In a win over rightwing dominionist Christians, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation’s (MRFF) forced the notoriously doctrinaire Air Force Academy to release the “Climate Survey,” mandated in response to the well-publicized religiously intolerant and bigoted atmosphere at the Academy(Jeff Sharlet; Harper’s, May 2009).

Curtis Weinstein … [said in 2004] … he planned to beat the shit out of the next cadet—or officer—who called him a “fucking Jew.” (Sharlet)

The following is a statement by MRFF Founder and President Mikey Weinstein regarding the US Air Forcedecision to disallow MRFF from the briefing event, a decision since reversed under pressure from pro-civil rights activists, most notably Mikey Weinstein.

Christians Desecrate Wiccan Religious Site at Air Force Academy

 ”The Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF; condemns, in the harshest possible terms, the comprehensively despicable and transparently self-serving actions of the U.S. Air Force Academy in barring MRFF from attending its ultra-controversial “2010 Climate Survey”  briefing this morning at the Academy. Among other things, this cowardly refusal by the U.S. Air Force Academy directly violates a specific promise by a senior Pentagon official via a letter to MRFF dated October 19, 2010 that today’s release of the Climate Survey data and related context information was specifically intended to address the demands of those entities that made requests pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, MRFF being chief among them.

 MRFF’s attorneys will carefully review these outrageous actions and deal swiftly with any violations of the law. The pathetic irony of this sad matter ought not to be lost upon anyone observing this travesty. Indeed, consider the following scenario as most telling. At precisely the very same time USAF Academy Superintendent Lt. Gen. Mike Gould is furiously attempting to explain away as ‘encouraging’ the shocking results of that 2010 Climate Survey (initiated in 2009), better described as a ‘tarantula on the Academy’s wedding cake’, to those granted attendance, he has ignored the absolutely clear directive of USAF Headquarters (Pentagon) that the release include all FOIA requesters, including MRFF, a 3-time Nobel Peace Prize nominated civil rights charity, representing over 20,000 U.S. active duty armed forces members and veterans, and which currently has 172 of Lt. Gen. Gould’s own Air Force Academy personnel as victim-clients.

 MRFF’s victim-clients are enduring horrific and unconstitutional systemic religious oppression at the Academy; the very same systemic oppression which Gould is dishonorably trying to ‘spin’ to the media as being either trivial or nonexistent! It is, of course, obvious why Gould barred MRFF; he cravenly wanted to silence all opposition and dissent to his farcical briefing. This being the very same presentation where he is trying to explain why a heaping pile of horse feces is, in fact, a heaping pile of diamonds. He wanted no avenue of inconvenient and contrary communication available for those 172 of his USAF Academy subordinate cadets and staff  for whom MRFF alone speaks. Why? Because those 172 subordinates of Gould are too terrified of retribution and reprisal to speak for themselves. And, oh how Gould is depending upon that terror-induced silence.

 Gould and his command at the USAF Academy will neither now nor ever speak for MRFF’s 172 clients who are being tormented and afflicted on a daily basis. The U.S. Air Force Academy craves and enforces brutal silence among those it unconstitutionally torments. What does MRFF think of Gould and his fellow USAF Academy oppressors, especially in light of Gould’s deliberate breaking of the aforementioned promise made to MRFF by his own Pentagon superiors? Confucius said it best; “To see that which is right, and not to do it, is cowardice.”

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?
