"I have a dream…"

The death of “Greatness” in America

By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor

I read today’s newspapers, demands for an attack on Iran.  Iran has no nuclear program yet there is no voice in America to stand up to the liars.  Dr. King is dead.  He would have been heard.

King defined greatness.  The silence today, the silence of the last decade and more?  No American leader can be called great, none now, certainly not in decades, not since the deaths of John and Robert Kennedy.  This lack of “greatness” is a national tragedy.

There is no greater symbol of “greatness” than that put forth by Martin Luther King in his “I have a dream” speech.  The struggles have changed, some victories won but others are lost.  When you hear Dr. King speak, compare his message with those of today.  Put his words and feelings into today’s context.

A sniper’s bullet forces this to be an exercise of imagination, sadly.

The social contract in America is based on lies.  Americans eat lies like the cheeseburgers they wear around their waists.  The lies, they are worn around the soul.  The lies symbolize our complicity in sin, murder, rape, torture, injustice of every kind.  The nations we hold up as symbols of brutality, Stalin’s Russia, Hitler’s Germany, to many, Netanyahu’s Israel, with their propaganda factories, death camps and robotic and slavish people, America has long been on this list.

We just don’t know it or don’t admit it.  We know it.  We pretend we don’t care.  This defines America in an era bereft of greatness, when the buffoons, the “Himmler’s” of our era, Beck and Palin, easy to see, but others, not so easy to see, drag us down.

More than one generation has come of age without knowing of Martin, John and Bobby.  A army of blaspheming propagandists has worked tirelessly to besmirch their memory, and for a reason.  Their spirit, real love for America, real patriotism, it has no place anymore.  Americans are supposed to be rubes, turning on each other whenever our buttons are pushed, standing up to nothing, standing for nothing.  We sat by silently when another generation was sent to war, perhaps our most brutal and unjust conflict so far.  Reverend King would have been on the front lines, were he alive today, fighting to stop what America has become, bigoted, a bully, a nation easily fooled, ready to hate, obsessed with imaginary enemies, a nation obsessed with fear.

If you don’t know that 9/11 was a conspiracy, the Bush administration and Israel, learning about this is where you start.  Lies are out there, but good information too, facts, science, testimony, hard documentation.  The 9/11 plot is the most documented crime in world history, enough hard evidence is out there to send dozens of current and former government officials, diplomats, military officers and foreign nationals to prison or worse.  If you have not begun the path toward learning the truth and are unwilling to take my challenge, to strike me down for using the words “evidence, science and fact” but choose to stay safe and warm while others die for a lie, you hold your manhood cheap.

There is no room for cowards, not anymore, not during wartime. People all over the world are dying and nobody is speaking up about it.  The shootings in Tucson bring this to light.  Why can’t the president, the press, treat every American death as though it were a tragedy?  The Bush era tradition, sneaking the dead in, dark of night, Dover Air Force Base, never a member of the administration, not once, ever showing up.  We checked, we caught them lying.  King would remember those we forget.

King would have spoken for the dead, the living, the new victims of injustice and suffering and there are so many of those victims today, so many more than he would ever have imagined.


Without the protests of the hideous Westboro Baptist Church, our war dead would receive no recognition at all.  In a perfect world, the objectionable Westboro protesters would be shaming the rest of us using ADL (Anti-Defamation League) type tactics, swastikas and Antisemitic slogans painted on synagogues and Jewish social centers.  Instead, it seems, Westboro really means it.  The only voice remembering our dead, the sacrifice, is this one.

There are no great men, no great women to stand up for any dead, American or otherwise, not when it comes to opposing profitable war or risking scorn from the friends of Israel.

We would no longer be able to ignore the 2.4 million civilian dead, most victims of starvation and disease brought on by policies adopted by the American government that were driven by greed, driven by Israeli ambition and insanity, fueled by race hatred, fueled by sick and twisted religious heresy here in America.  Of that 2.4 million, over 100,000 were killed by military action, the vast majority “collateral damage,” innocent bystanders victimized by useless and uncontrollable billion dollar murder machines as part of the Pentagon’s “video arcade” proxy war.

What would Dr. King have to say?  For a decade, America has sent her sons and daughters to kill, to die, to the remote placed of earth, initially pumped with patriotic fervor, not to fight America’s real enemies, they are at home, not among us, certainly.  Our enemies are not seen.  Their homes are at the ends of long driveways, behind locked gates, places few are invited and only the few even know of.  America’s enemies live in islands of excess, an archipelago of privilege and inexorably, an archipelago of pure and unrelenting evil.

Only Dr. King could speak of this, as he was most aware of it then, he would certainly feel its bloated presence today.  He would find, perhaps, a way of leaving hate out of his voice.

Or could he?

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?
