Politically Correct – Then and Now

Burke Davis writing in “Marine” a biography of Marine Lt. Gen. Lewis B. “Chesty Puller” quotes the general as saying: “Our country won’t go on forever, if we stay soft as we are now. There won’t be any America because some foreign soldiery will invade us and take our women and breed a hardier race.” (General Puller was awarded five (5) Navy Crosses during his service to the United States of America.)
General Puller is quoted as saying too: “…in battle you can’t will the enemy to do anything” and “you can’t hurt em if you don’t hit em.” Mr. Davis’ biography of Gen. Puller is an excellent description of a Marine Officer from 2Lt. to flag rank. At the opposite end, Robert Leckie’s “Helmet for My Pillow” describes the Marine Rifleman at the squad level. General Puller believed in Officers being on the line with their men. Robert Leckie learned that the enemy must be killed, destroyed, not allowed to live. Our military still has men like Gen. Puller and Robert Leckie.

Readers take a (film) look into the life of the line grunt. The film Outpost Restrepo gives an excellent description of how the infantry lives and exists in an exposed position. Few Americans ever experience the life of the line grunt. Outpost Restrepo gives civlians and REMF’s the opportunity to view grunts from a safe, confortable location. The men of this infantry platoon have a few high tech pieces of equipement. They function in an exposed poistion like grunts always have – on the edge. The billions of dollars in our defense budget – in the end comes down to a few men with rifles and machine guns facing other men with rifles and machine guns. Men that conquer and control their fear. They are ordinary men. Everyday guys fight wars – not the hero types of Hollywood. They are not the politically correct types found in confortable and safe headquaters. They are riflemen – a breed apart.

As long as America has men like those deplicted in Outpost Restrepo we will survive and General Puller’s caution about a foreign soldiery will not come to pass. Unmanned aircraft, aircraft carriers, missles, high tech aircraft, speeches are part of an overall defense posture. Closing with and killing the enemy is – in the final anayalisis of military life and operations – all the really counts. Want to look into the life of the grunt without having to really experience it, read Marine by Burke and Helmet for My Pillow by Leckie. Fire in Streets by Hammel gives an excellent description of the grunts life in Vietnam during Tet 68. Of course, “We were Soldiers Once and Young” is a must read to for the civilian wanting a look into our life.

Had General Puller made his comment noted above today – well, imagine the political firestorm this distinguised Officer would be subjected to. Remember folks: “In battle you can’t will the enemy to do anything.” Check out Outpost Restrepo. It is an excellent production.

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?
