TEA PARTY — A DISTORTED REVOLUTION

Unfortunately the reality that was the basis of the original Boston Tea Party has been forgotten in the latter-day protests.


By Paul J Balles

If the Tea Party rally in America represented a sane, honest, non-violent revolution, it could make a lot of sense as a populist movement.

Unfortunately, it’s been spearheaded by a psycho and supported by what some have labelled “wing nuts” – a current brand name for crazies and the brainless.

The name “Tea Party” alludes to the Boston Tea Party, a 1773 incident when American colonists destroyed British tea rather than pay what they considered a tax that violated their right to “No Taxation without Representation.”

About the current Tea-Partiers, pollster Scott Rasmussen says, “They think federal spending, deficits and taxes are too high, and they think no one in Washington is listening to them, and that latter point is really important.”

Expressed concerns by Tea Party supporters have included cutting the size of government, lowering taxes, reducing wasteful spending, the national debt and federal budget deficit, and adherence to an “originalist” interpretation of the United States Constitution.

Headlining an article by Matt Taibbi, Alternet writes “By rallying behind dingbats and morons like Palin and Michele Bachmann, the Tea Party has made anti-intellectualism its rallying cry.

Taibbi writes, “…movements like the Tea Party more than anything else reflect a widespread longing for simpler times and simple solutions.” Unfortunately, as he also points out, we’re living in an extremely complex world where there are no simple solutions.

An honest populist movement could find many things wrong with the way things go in American politics, but they won’t with some of the brainless ideas reflected in the signs they carry.

There’s nothing honest in the palaver mouthed by the self-appointed titular organizer of the movement, Glenn Beck at Fox News.

Most of the expressed concerns by those identified with the movement are related to domestic politics. An honest populist movement would incorporate foreign affairs.

Unfortunately the reality that was the basis of the original Boston Tea Party has been forgotten in the latter-day protests.

In the original rallies, America was accused of being the sycophant to the British king.  The refusal to pay any more to the British monarch provided the impetus for the American Revolution.

If American patriots looked closely today at its sycophantic behaviour, they would absolutely refuse any further activity as lackey, minion, parasite or puppet to Israel.

Who were Americans paying homage to when they refused to stop Israel bombing Lebanon’s civilian infrastructure and civilian neighbourhoods?

American taxpayers were paying for the military hardware as they have as a regular lackey to Israel’s slaughtering campaigns like the carnage in Gaza.

Paul Craig Roberts described how “Nothing has been spared. Not the hospitals, the university, nor the children.” Thank you, American taxpayers.

Where were the Tea Partiers when Lebanon and Gaza were being destroyed with US taxpayer money?

If you supported the carnage of Lebanese and Palestinians, be honest and admit that taxes for Israel are more important than the unemployed in America.

Those who have followed real truth-seekers now know that the Iraq war, costing millions of Iraqi lives and thousands of American casualties along with trillions of taxpayer dollars was based on Israeli deception.

False intelligence and propaganda from Israel cost American taxpayers a fortune. The only beneficiary? Israel.

Why haven’t Bush and Cheney and their Israeli neocons been brought to trial for war crimes?

Aren’t Obama, his administration and Congress equally minions of Israel? If not, why pay taxes without representation?

Would you prefer to fight against taxes for wealthy Americans, sacrificing the unemployed, mortgage holders, home foreclosures from a crooked banking system, health care, education?

Shame!

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 happening 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".

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 IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. Or if you need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and 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 and other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) 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.

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?
