“Fame and riches are fleeting. Stupidity is eternal”

The House homeland security committee, chaired by New York Republican representative Peter King, opens hearings this week on the threat of homegrown Muslim terrorist, amid much controversy.

Mr. King must weigh the damage he may inflict on American Muslims versus the political and financial gain he may garner from his discriminatory hearings.

By Mohamed Khodr / STAFF WRITER

It’s déjà vu all over again.  A Catholic Congressman is holding hearings on Un-American Activities by a small American minority community he claims are being infiltrated and controlled by Radical elements that threaten the national security making them an enemy within.

This is not Senator Joe McCarthy but New York Republican Representative Peter King, currently the Chair of the House’s Committee on Homeland Security.  Mr. King’s hearings this week will focus on the Radicalization of American Muslims and the threat this poses to America’s security.

Building up to such hearings Mr. King has made outrageous, bigoted, reckless, and unsubstantiated claims about the American Muslim community.  Without any evidence to support his ideological and politically motivated statements, he nevertheless has purported that “there are too many mosques in America”; that “80 – 85% of mosques in this country are controlled by Islamic Fundamentalists”; and that, “No America Muslim leaders are cooperating in the war on terror.”

It’s beyond the pale of logic to comment on Mr. King’s incredulous remark that there are “too many mosques” in the U.S.   Perhaps Mr. King can inform us what’s an acceptable number of mosques given that no one, not even the Muslim community knows that figure.  How many mosques, churches, synagogues, and temples constitute an acceptable number to Mr. King, a lawyer, who is surely aware of freedom of religion?

Without a known denominator of the number of mosques and the impossibility of defining or knowing how many mosques are infiltrated by “Islamic Fundamentalists”, how does Mr. King conclude that 80 -85% of mosques are  infiltrated by fundamentalists?

When asked by Sean Hannity in 2004 to substantiate the claim of 80 – 85%, Mr. King responded:  “I can get you the documentation on that from experts in the field. Talk to a Steve Emerson, talk to a [Daniel] Pipes, talk to any of those. They will tell you. It’s a real issue … I’ll stand by that number of 85 percent. This is an enemy living amongst us.”

Neither of these individuals have done or published any scientific evidence to substantiate their totally arbitrary claim.   However both are known for their Anti-Islamic rhetoric.

Do Muslims need to be devout and attend Mosques to hatch terrorism plans?   Not hardly.  Terrorist plans can be hatched anywhere other than a mosque.

As for cooperation with Law Enforcement from the Federal to the Local level not one agency has claimed that Muslims are un-cooperative.

In fact, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) who was the previous Chair of the House Homeland Security Committee wrote an op-ed on Politico (1/27/11) in which he strongly refutes King’s assertion that Muslims are not cooperating with Law Enforcement Agencies.

Mr. King has had ample media opportunity to spew his prejudicial attitude against all American Muslims without ever being challenged to support his outrageous claims with solid evidence or facts.   One wonders if the media outlets that provide such opportunities share his demonizing campaign of all American Muslims.

Mr. King’s long history of supporting and defending the I.R.A.’s terroristic activities has been amply documented.

According to the Daily Beast (1/10/2010), in 2002, King condemned the hearings into the I.R.A’s link to FARC as “irresponsible”.  He claimed the hearings were rigged and subject to a ‘pre-ordained agenda’ despite ample evidence demonstrating that the IRA was offering bomb-making and explosives training to the FARC.   The hypocrisy and double standards on this is lost on Mr. King and his determination to smear an entire minority population.

If only Mr. King did some research, as is expected from a Congressman, into the subject of Muslim extremism he would have dispelled, I think, his preconceived falsehoods on the issue.  Unfortunately Mr. King has made previous decisions based on faulty and false information as was the case of his support for the devastating invasion of Iraq.

But where does President Obama stand on Peter King’s smearing hearing on the radicalization of American Muslims.

Well that depends on which of Obama’s hypocritical faces you observe over time.

Is he the President who spoke in Cairo to a Muslim audience on June 4, 2009 saying?

“I have come here to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world; one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect; and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive, and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles – principles of justice and progress; tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”

Or is he the Obama represented by Dennis McDonough, Deputy National Security Advisor to the President who called Rep. Peter King expressing the White House’s support for the hearings:  According to Peter king McDonough called him and said:

“No, you should go ahead with the hearings. We favor congressional involvement.”…A White House spokesman doesn’t dispute King’s version of the phone call, and adds: “As for Rep. King’s hearings specifically, we welcome congressional interest.”  (The Daily Beast, “Peter King’s Unlikely Ally”, March 9, 2011)

Or is Obama’s second face represented by Dennis McDonough when he gave a speech to a Muslim audience saying?

“When it comes to preventing violent extremism and terrorism in the United States, Muslim Americans are not part of the problem, they’re part of the solution….We must resolve that, in our determination to protect our nation, we will not stigmatize or demonize entire communities because of the actions of a few,”  (W.H.: Don’t ‘demonize’ Islam”,; March 7, 2011)

Obama’s administration has been characterized by a constant metamorphosis of retracted and changing policies.  This is a man who obviously is spineless and fearful of his standing and his chances for reelection.   He was brought into office by Jewish money both personal and from Wall Street and is intimidated by an Israeli lobby that has forced him to abandon the MidEast Peace process and join them in the demonizing and stigmatizing of the entire American Muslim community.

He’s been decimated by the Israeli lobby and right wing attacks that he’s a Muslim and Anti-Israel.  He’s determined to prove them wrong.

Here are some factual reports that should embarrass Mr. King given his outlandish statements and crusade against American Muslims.

F.B.I. Report:  Terrorist Incidents 2002 -2005

–Chronological Summary of Terrorist Incidents in the United States 1980-2005

According to this FBI Database: Only SIX percent of terrorist incidents during that time were committed by Muslims, thereby 94% of such incidents were committed by Non-Muslims

–23 of the 24 recorded terrorist incidents (2002-2005) were perpetrated by domestic terrorists. With the exception of a white supremacist’s firebombing of a synagogue in Oklahoma City, all of the domestic terrorist incidents were committed by special interest extremists active in the animal rights and environmental movements.

RAND Corporation Report:

–[Of the] 83 terrorist attacks in the United States between 9/11 and the end of 2009, only three…were clearly connected with the jihadist cause. (3.6% of total)

–There are more than 3 million Muslims in the United States, and few more than 100 have joined jihad—about one out of every 30,000—suggesting an American Muslim population that remains hostile to jihadist ideology and its exhortations

There is no evidence that America’s Muslim community is becoming more radical.

–Many of the jihadist recruits in the United States began their journey on the Internet.  (Not in Mosques)

–The homegrown jihadist threat in America today consists of tiny conspiracies, lone gunmen, and one-off attacks.

–A mistrust of American Muslims by other Americans seems misplaced.

Europol Reports 2006, 2007, 2008:

–A total of 1,571 terrorist attacks occurred in the E.U. from 2006-2008 of which only 6 were committed by Islamist terrorists which translates to less than 0.4% of all attacks, which means 99.6% of all attacks were committed by Non-Muslims.

Europol Report 2010:

–Separatist terrorism continues to be the type of terrorism which affects the EU most in terms of the number of attacks carried out.

Islamist terrorist activities are increasingly being perpetrated by self-radicalized and often self-instructed individuals, acting alone instead of in groups. (Not in Mosques)

Tragically in America society where many have surrendered their intellectual curiosity and analysis of issues to the media, especially to Fox News, its easy to understand the enormous fear and perception that Muslims are the biggest threat to our security when far greater dangers emanate from Right Wing Extremists, Militias, White Supremacists, Neo Nazis, Eco-Terrorists, Anti-Government and Anti-Tax citizens, Anti-Abortion groups, the Hutaree “Christian Warrior” militias intent on killing law enforcement agents, the Army of God (Hezbollah), widespread drug and youth gangs, the Mexican and Colombian Drug Cartels, the Mafia, and White Crimes in financial institutions, and so much more.

Rep. King is uninformed, driven by a single obsession and focus on American Muslims and is unaware that his hearings will only be counterproductive and may result in further violence against an already besieged American Muslim community.   We must not scapegoat an entire community for the many psycho-social and violent ills in our society.   We need not create a new enemy for every generation.

Mr. King must weigh the damage he may inflict on American Muslims versus the political and financial gain he may garner from his discriminatory hearings.

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?
