Wael Ghonim And Egypt’s New Age Revolution

Wael Ghonim, Google Executive

Paul Findley author of “They Dare to Speakout” wrote: “One of my litmus tests is torture. Anyone engaging in rendition and torture is a bad guy.That disqualifies Omar Suleiman as well as others like Mubarak, Cheney, and George W. I believe a great day is dawning for human rights worldwide, not just Tunisia and Egypt. Israel will have to abandon racism and territorial aggression.Thank God for the Internet and young leaders like Wael Ghonim.”


Paul Findley is right, Wael Ghonim is indeed, a beautiful, articulate, and inspiring young man!

Like he says in the interview posted below…. without the advent of the technical means of modern communication available today, this would not have happened.  But, those are but the tools.

Revolutions are founded upon and fueled by the naiveté, spirit and the dreams of innocent young idealists such as he.  And, it is young men, idealists like him, and cold, hungry peasantry, who have always been used as the cannon fodder for revolutions, who pay for the successful revolutions.   But they seldom get what they have paid and bargained for.  Many of them do not survive the post-revolutionary reconstruction era long enough to realize or understand this.

Building a new nation, a new political and governing reality is something else entirely.  As mentioned, he has no ambitions for leadership, and no idea of what lies in the future.

More cause and effect, or rather, in this case, no cause, no more effect!

Revolutions have a history of building big and fast on little but ignorance, passion, hunger and other emotions. But lacking the substance of organization, goals and plans, they usually burnout quickly. Without effective and organized leadership,  which must include a ready-made post-revolutionary plan and organization to immediately drop into place and fill the vacuum, install and establish a reform government, it would not stand a chance of success… and it did not.

Liberty Freedom, Justice, are ephemeral and insubstantial ideals, with no substance and no inertia.  Revolutions built of such flimsy goods do not last and leave vacuums in governance which are usually filled by more practical men with shovels and bulldozers loaded of ambition, goals and plans.
Prof. Richard Falk and Prof. James Petras discusss and analyse “Revolutionary” prospects of Egypt. Both seem to have hit upon some obvious truths, and are shining the light on the right spots.

For a wider view of the Big Picture, I suggest study of the Russian Revolution as a model of Classic Revolutionary evolution, and the effects of counter and post counter-revolutions which brought down the House of Romanov and eventually gave us the Soviet Union with Josef Stalin.  I believe both of these “Revolutions” were engineered and brought to us by the same people.  In such cases, sponsoring Revolutions in other countries were merely stratagems designed and carried out to further and defend their own aggressive revolution against the world.

As professor Petras  surmise “While the White House may tolerate or even promote social movements in ousting (“sacrificing”) dictatorships, they have every intention in preserving the state. In the case of Egypt the main strategic ally of US imperialism was not Mubarak, it is the military, with whom Washington was in constant collaboration before, during and after the ouster of Mubarak, ensuring that the “transition” to democracy (sic) guarantees the continued subordination of Egypt to US and Israeli Middle East policy and interests.”

Overthrow or toppling of a head of state is a coup.

Replacing one government with another which governs under an entirely different set of principles of government, is a revolution.  There is a massive difference, and we should not confuse the two.

Egypt has seen a coup.

It has not shown any evidence of revolution.  To the contrary, the same forces are still in power which supported the last government regime.

New names, new labels, new titles, same old business and government as before.

As Paul Findley wrote, the bottom line is “torturers” are bad guys.

The Police and the Army who supported Mubarak in malmanagement and depredations for all of those years are still in place, and still in charge.

And, they have the guns!

Finally, professor Falk’s concerns are valid “Does this seemingly amateur (in the best sense of the word) movement in Egypt have the sustaining energy, historical knowledge, and political sophistication to ensure that the transition process fulfills revolutionary expectations?”

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?
