ALISON WEIR : Is Mubarak approaching his end?

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has ruled his country with an iron fist, backed by the US along with Egypt’s strong neighboring ally Israel; however, the Egyptian people are forming a common uprising against his regime.

– Alison Weir / Press TV

Press TV interviewed Alison Weir, Executive Director of “If Americans Knew” regarding the Egyptian protests, and the position of the United States in this regard, as the common Egyptian people revolt against Mubarak’s regime.

Press TV: Joining us from Sacramento, California we have Alison Weir on the line who is the Executive Director of “If Americans Knew.” Washington must be looking at this Egyptian scenario unfold while biting their nails. We have had Hilary Clinton come out and speak, but she was still at essence standing by her man Hosni Mubarak, wasn’t she?

Weir: Yes she was as was Vice President Biden. They denied Mubarak was a dictator despite all the evidence of the opposite. The US government is in a quandary because it’s very clear. Finally even Americans are seeing a bit that Mubarak does not represent Egyptians, has not been a popular leader, and basically part of the lack of his popularity is that he does the bidding of the United States which does the bidding of Israel. That is the problem and I’m sad to say its unlikely Hillary Clinton will say that.

Press TV: What do you think the discussions in the State Department and at the White House might be behind closed doors now? How are they looking at the scenario? What planning is taking place? Do they have a plan B?

Weir: It’s difficult to know because what goes on in the United States is that the State Department that is charged to try to defend and protect American interests is subservient to the Israeli lobby,  which largely controls the elected officials.  The Israeli lobby arranged the deal in approximately 1979.  They bought off Egypt, which is the largest, most populous and richest country in the Middle East from supporting Palestinian rights, and to make its own unilateral peace arrangement with Israel.

In return the United States has been giving Egypt a massive amount of  tax money every year. It’s something like 28 billion dollars over the last 30 years basically on the basis of this arrangement. Now the State Department is in a quandary because the people of Egypt have finally begun the process of probably overthrowing an unpopular dictator who was helping Israel to imprison the people of Gaza. People because of programs such as yours, and Al-Jazeera and other international media in Egypt were very aware of what was being done to the people of Gaza, which was to starve them and cause a massive humanitarian crisis. That was partially enabled because of the Mubarak regime closing off the border between Egypt and Gaza and forcing the imprisonment of the Palestinian people.

Press TV: Comparing to the Iranian Islamic Revolution, which was a long time ago, 32 years ago, it’s a big difference that a lot of people have been commenting on though. Of course in Iran there was clear leadership. In Tunisia and Egypt and Yemen and even in other areas in other countries in the region where this kind of political movement is taking place there isn’t clear leadership. Is that positive or negative for these movements?

Weir: It’s probably both. Having strong leadership can of course be valuable, if its wise leadership and leadership with the ability to rally the people and be in concert with what they believe in. However, in some ways that it is a popular uprising, and it is as we call in the US more of a grass roots movement that was representing the people of Egypt; that’s real valuable…. And I expect that Mubarak is out he is. I’m not there on the ground so I’m less knowledgeable in that aspect, but if he is out as is the expectation, who will replace him is a major concern. Who will be funding that person? What will be his ties?

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?
