Wikileaks has confirmed to the world that the Emperor is naked but America has yet to hold up  the mirror to witness the extent of its own moral bankruptcy: Allen L Roland

There is a tide in the affairs of men
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures.

Julius Caesar Act 4, scene 3, 218–224

The good ship America is leaking badly and Wikileaks has confirmed the extent of our miseries and moral bankruptcy. Does the Obama administration have the courage to look at itself and the outdated fear-based Cheney/Bush policies and diplomacy it inherited ~ and instead ride the rising tide of transparency and truth or will it continue to be bound in the shallows of moral and financial irrelevance in a rapidly uniting and interdependent world?

America is at an important moral crossroads and Wikileaks has helped set the stage for Americans to fully grasp this moment. Wikileaks began on Sunday November 28th publishing 251,287 leaked United States embassy cables, the largest set of confidential documents ever to be released into the public domain. The documents gave the world an unprecedented insight into US Government foreign activities.


The cables, which date from 1966 up until the end of February of 2010, contain confidential communications between 274 embassies in countries throughout the world and the State Department in Washington DC. and 15,652 of the cables are classified Secret.

In summary, The cables show the extent of US spying on its allies and the UN; the blatant turning a blind eye to corruption and human rights abuse in its “client states”; the backroom deals with supposedly neutral countries; and the measures US diplomats take to advance those who have access to them ~ but now let’s concentrate on the flagship of the Obama Administration’s moral disintegration ~ Afghanistan.

This in now Obama’s Occupation ( not War ) and yesterdays surprise three hour cheerleading visit to the troops at Bagram air base, Afghanistan must be seen in relationship to Wikileaks revealing of the ongoing staggering scale of Afghan corruption. Transparency International, an advocacy organization that tracks government corruption around the globe, ranks Afghanistan as the world’s third most corrupt country ~ only Somalia and Myanmar are ranked above it.

The Wikileaks cables describe a country where everything is for sale ~ where corruption, fueled by an illicit narcotics industry, pervades every level of Afghan society from the illegally elected and American stooge President Hamid Karzai to the province governors and largely unregulated banking infrastructure.

Obama’s quick visit comes amid tensions with Karzai and conflicting reports about the progress of the U.S.-led campaign to reverse Taliban gains in Afghanistan ~ who are increasingly being seen by the populace as freedom fighters against the American and UN occupiers.

The last refuge of a scoundrel is patriotism and Obama has proved himself as adept as his predecessor, George W Bush, in draping himself around the troops and the flag when things are not going politically well.

The first step in transformation is the truth and transparency and Wikileaks has provided a needed, if somewhat vetted, platform for the truth to work its way to the surface of our consciousness~ particularly regarding our incredibly expensive and draining occupation of Afghanistan.

As such, Wikileaks has helped to fully expose how US fear based diplomacy is flooding the Middle East with weapons, has continued the arms race, still condones Israel’s crimes against the Palestinians and still continues to maintain draining wars and occupations that have cost the American Taxpayer hundreds of billions of dollars.

President Obama better look into this Wikileaks thing soon because, believe me, the world is looking and reading it with many more revelations to come. The Emperor is now clearly naked and unless Obama looks in the mirror and dramatically changes course ~ his administration will wash up on the rocks of a one term presidency with Afghanistan clearly visible as the albatross around his neck.  

Although the Wikileaks site has lost its domain name service – meaning its web address no longer works – the site can still be accessed via its less user-friendly IP address:

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?
