ALLEN L ROLAND : Egypt Is Obama’s Non Shining Moment


President Obama has been caught like a deer in the headlights by Egypt’s internal cry for freedom and justice whereas empty words and rhetoric will no longer assuage a true people’s revolution that demands change and meaningful reform: Allen L Roland


CAIRO, Feb 9 (Reuters) – ” Egyptians have staged one of their biggest protests yet insisting President Hosni Mubarak step down immediately and ignoring a government plan to transfer power. For many protestors it was the first time they had joined the daily demonstrations in Cairo’s Their Square showing the movement, now in its third week, still is gaining momentum.”

The old world order continues to crack under the assault of the Egyptian people’s revolution and the demand for truth and transparency ~ which are the two needed ingredients for true change. President Obama has been caught, like a deer in the headlights, by America’s continued hypocrisy. Alternet reports that over the weekend, U.S. envoy to Cairo Frank Wisner embarrassed and confused the White House by breaking from the official Obama administration line regarding Egypt (Mubarak should step down peacefully, etc.). Speaking in Cairo on Saturday, the retired State Department employee said that “President Mubarak’s continued leadership is critical: it’s his opportunity to write his own legacy.”

Whoops! In Cairo, Robert Fisk of the Independent reported on the current furious back-pedaling now underway at the White House and reveals that Wisner had business ties to the Mubarak regime: “ The US State Department and Mr Wisner himself have now both claimed that his remarks were made in a “personal capacity”. But there is nothing “personal” about Mr Wisner’s connections with the litigation firm Patton Boggs, which openly boasts that it advises “the Egyptian military, the Egyptian Economic Development Agency, and has handled arbitrations and litigation on the [Mubarak] government’s behalf in Europe and the US“. Oddly, not a single journalist raised this extraordinary connection with US government officials – nor the blatant conflict of interest it appears to represent.”  Full article ~

Meanwhile the Pentagon is moving U.S. warships and other military assets to make sure that it is prepared in case evacuation of U.S. citizens from Egypt becomes necessary, White house officials said Friday. But the USS Enterprise attack carrier is also being kept on station in the eastern Mediterranean and the Enterprise does not appear to have any dual role for evacuations ~ but is simply an offensive attack carrier which sends a far different message to Egyptian people’s revolution. Are these ships protecting the protesting people of Egypt or the faltering Mubarak puppet regime in Egypt ?  Full article ~

The three key methods of the old world order in the Middle East are Coercion, Control and Military Power and it appears that Obama’s allegiance to the financial elite as well as Israel and AIPAC are rapidly leaving him with only those options but most certainly it is not bending to the will of a long oppressed people’s revolution. Expect more talk and posturing as well as the gradual reinstatement of public restrictions and police state control as the Mubarak / Suleiman regime attempts to regain its footing and credibility. Suleiman is Egypt’s Dick Cheney (Darth Vader) with the same shared interest in the dark side along with the same shared blessing of Israel.

This is not Obama’s shining moment and his true allegiance to the Old World Order as well as the corpocracy and global elite is now being witnessed by the world in the glaring headlights of the bottom-up Egyptian people’s revolution ~ a revolution which now most assuredly is seen as a direct threat to America’s rapidly crumbling empire. Norm Chomsky correctly says, “ It’s not radical Islam that worries the US, it’s Independence ~ The nature of any regime it backs in the Arab world is secondary to control. Subjects are ignored until they break their chains.”

As the UK’s Palden Jenkins writes ~ The Young Middle Eastern movements of today suggest a quantum shift that resembles that of the Sixties. They represent a new computation of the issues and solutions, starting from a new starting-point and seeking a new horizon. The Street has a new perception, facilitated by the community of the cellphone, e-mail, YouTube, satellite TV and the airplane. It’s driven from below, it’s youthful and driven by half of the population. It’s an organic network, not an organisation. It has language and laws, shared sentiments and perspectives. This is a form of texted, e-mailed hyper-democracy….. The difficult bit for Westerners is that, having been top dogs, we have to rejoin the human race on equitable terms before we can get our fingers back on the pulse. Our buzzwords – peace, freedom, democracy and human rights – sound good, but our actions smell badly. We continue to want to maintain our comfortable lifestyles and export our double standards, whatever the cost to others. So the world is bypassing us. This is why we need to recognise that what’s brewing in the Middle East is worth watching. Don’t be deceived ~ it’s not just bombs and rioting. There’s much more.” [email protected]

The revolting Egyptian people are not buying into our Old World Order playbook which is Promise, Stall, Coerce and Control change. This is precisely what Obama utilized in his 2008 Presidential election mandate to the American people ~ who also demanded change and meaningful reform and are still waiting.

Next time we will take to the streets like our Egyptian brothers and sisters and it may well be sooner than later. In a nutshell, we are witnessing large-scale growing global unrest ~ where entire populations, suffering in poverty, are refusing to be exploited at the hands of a small ruling elite who are manipulated by foreign interests such as the United States. 

The times are a changing!

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?
