AMERICA’S CURRENT MALAISE IS SPRINGBOARD FOR NEW LEADER

President Obama’s Change We Can Believe in has become a sorry joke and the only ones laughing are the financial elite. Out of America’s current moral malaise must arise a leader who can both challenge Obama in the 2012 Primaries and unite the betrayed electorate who voted for true change in 2008: Allen L Roland

It’s time to stop wishful thinking and realize that President Obama has no interest in fulfilling the progressive agenda he rode to election in 2008. Let’s get something straight ~ Obama answers to Wall Street and the financial elite and is already much more concerned about his re-election than his incredibly expensive failed War or Occupation of Afghanistan, the sorry state of our economy, the 17% unemployment rate and his recent vote of no confidence in the 2010 mid-term election.

Obama lives in an Oval office bubble which deflects all criticism or self analysis and replaces it with infuriating self righteousness and defensive attacks on his progressive base or those who don’t agree with him. But the hard reality is that Obama was chosen by the financial elite and answers primarily to Wall Street ~ liberals and middle class be damned!

Obama is still under the mistaken impression that Americans voted to throw out the Republicans in 2008 and completely ignored the electorate demand for real versus token change. He still doesn’t realize that in many ways he is a lame duck president with a rapidly vanishing progressive and Independent base.

Professor Stanley Aronowitz spoke knowingly of this immense malaise tormenting American society in late October of this year ~ just before the mid-term election ~ “The underlying problem in all of this is that citizens have discovered – thanks to the management of the financial/economic crisis – that their powers are reduced, that the oligarchy, that Wall Street, continues to dispossess them ever more. That has been exacerbated by the bailout of the financial system, of the big banks and insurance companies. People feel they’ve been swindled. Everything happens above their heads without their getting a word in. They feel, without being able to articulate it more precisely, that they don’t have the democratic political system they need. They can’t express that because all the parties are in on the swindle … so, they follow those who deliberately depart from the accepted script and play on their emotions by throwing them the red meat of “too much government,’ the Washington establishment or more classical scapegoats such as immigrants… People believe that the economic system has exploded into bits. And they think that the political system is incapable of finding a way out, that there’s no one to defend them, to protect them from the disaster. You know that we have three million families confronted with foreclosure. We have a real level of unemployment that sits above 17 percent of the active population. And there’s no real political will to come to grips with these ultrasensitive questions, apart from a few exceptions that confirm the rule, such as the actions taken by Elizabeth Warren, who works in the Obama administration on consumer protection issues. The government itself is in question, hence the rise in receptiveness to the Republicans’ and the Tea Party’s anti-government or reduced-government demagoguery.” Read more

However, out of our current American malaise and inept presidential leadership is emerging outspoken leaders ~ such as Independent Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont ~ who spells out the class war that now exists in America and the reality of who is winning in this economy and who is losing ~ for example from 1980 to 2005, 80% of all new income went to the top 1% of population and now the super rich want to hold on to their Bush tax cuts with Obama’s blessing.

Bernie spent yesterday filibusting against Obama’s unfair tax cut compromise agreement with the Republicans on the Senate floor. Listen to Bernie’s speech and watch righteous indignation and inspiring leadership at work.

Right now, I’d support Bernie Sanders in a general  primary or election against Barack Obama because Sanders is tuned into the American people. Obama, on the other hand, is completely tuned out ~ witness his ongoing attacks on liberals, calling them sanctimonious, and then publicly criticizing their support for the late and blatantly ignored public option. Catch the irony ~ while Bernie Sanders filibusters on the Senate floor on the obvious injustices of our current economy, President Obama trots out our original Democratic centrist snake oil salesman, Bill Clinton, to sell Obama’s ill advised tax cut sell out to the financial elite ~ which includes Clinton himself. No wonder they are all laughing ~ it’s all a corporate money game and we are obviously not part of it.

But America was apparently listening to Bernie’s over eight hour truth telling ~ News Web sites like CNN.com live-streamed the proceedings on the floor, as did Mr. Sanders’ own Web site. According to The Huffington Post, that video stream “became so popular that it temporarily shut down the Senate video server.” In addition, C-SPAN was treating Mr. Sanders’ speech as the top story on its Web site Friday evening.

Hell hath no fury like a betrayed electorate and President Obama has just heard the first shot across the bow of his badly listing ship of state. As Michael Moore said ~ Rather than an ally, the Obama administration has shown itself to be an implacable enemy of reform.”

According to the latest McClatchy Newspapers-Marist poll, Obama’s approval ratings are so low that Republican Mitt Romney would beat him if the 2012 Presidential election was held today ~ but I predict that Obama will probably lose to a serious progressive challenger in the 2012 Presidential primaries.

It’s time for a revolution and as George Orwell said ~ “By revolution we become more ourselves, not less”

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?
