Medal of Honor headstone placed on fallen Oviedo soldier’s grave

Medal of Honor headstone placed on fallen Oviedo soldier’s grave this morning but as the Orlando Sentinelreported hundreds were there, it amazed me there were not more. How does a service like this not get everyone to attend? Even Florida’s new Governor Scott was there to honor the life of Staff Sgt. Robert Miller without saying a word in public. The speeches were left up to military brass. Patriot Guard riders and the Nam Knights were there as well. General Dunn walked around the crowd and made it a point to shake hands and thank them for coming. High school kids from Junior ROTC stood for over an hour as cars pulled in. All of this for this one young life gone while trying to save the lives of his friends.

How hard is it to honor the lives of the men and women giving all they have for this country? We can and always will argue about the worthiness of wars. Early Americans did more than argue over fighting England for independence. Loyalists actually tried to kill off the Patriots. The northern states had to fight the southern states. Every other war this nation has been involved in has been one argument after another but when it comes to the men and women with their lives on the line they should never be forgotten about. But this nation is disconnected from all of them unless they happen to have someone directly involved in Afghanistan or Iraq. Even the local media dropped the ball on this. I tried to search for the names of the brass at this service but couldn’t find a single report with them in it. There was such little coverage of this that I can’t figure out if the lack of interest is because the media has not really cared to report on it or they didn’t report because the public doesn’t care.

They go through so much when they are deployed and so do their families. Veterans know full well what kind of sacrifice we’re really talking about but the rest of us never manage to see the additional sacrifice they make when the rest of us didn’t pay any attention to what they did because we as a nation sent them. We pay hardly no attention to the wounded and the amputees. We pay little attention to the men and women coming home with a lifetime of more sacrifice when they are afflicted by PTSD. We walk by them when some of them end up homeless and are afraid of others because they “act funny” in large crowds. Some of us see a uniform and turn our eyes away from them because we don’t know what to say to someone like them. How can we know anything about them when they are unselfish serving this country and the rest of us only really care about our own problems? How can we understand someone with their own problems taking on the security of the nation on top of everything else? Going away from their own families for a year at a time and never knowing where they will be transferred to?

How can we know what it is like for them to come home to a nation that has been all too willing to forget all about them?

The people showing up at this service this morning remember them. The crowds showing up at military funerals to shield the families from the hateful Westboro Group remember them. There are many in this country remembering them but like them, they are the minority of the population of this nation. That is why it was so sad this cemetery was not full of local people coming out to honor one of their own when he became one of the very few to receive the Medal of Honor and show support for the family he left behind.

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 if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

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 do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box 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 #altnews 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?
