SAMI JADALLAH : America First, why not?

Let us make “America First” the litmus tests for all elected officials.

With tens of millions of Veterans we can do it, and we should do it.

Sami Jamil Jadallah / STAFF WRITER

As I look at and watch what is happening in Washington these days, I have to wonder whether we are living in America as envisioned by George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, George Mason and Benjamin Franklin and the founding fathers who laid the corner stones for the emerging democracy or we are living in a country on a course of self destruct from within.

America today is not America of the founding fathers and we have to wonder what “we the people” did to take it to where it is now?  We the people abandoned America First and allowed our elected officials from the president to members of congress to the governors, to the state legislators, mayors and city councils to be elected by the dollars and special interests groups, and not by our votes (with one minor exception California governorship vote where hundreds of millions of dollars failed to deliver the win). We abandoned America First and allowed the media, the pundits, the talk radios, political strategists, the pollsters, the lobbyist, the special interest and cash, lots of cash and the cash spent on elections to determines who wins and who lose and we allowed all that as voters to become mere ‘conduit” to a political system that not only corrupted politicians and office seekers but corrupted and bankrupted the nation as well. No thanks to the Supreme Court that ruled “corporation” is citizen within the meaning for the First Amendment and true, they may not cast their ballots like individual citizens but they can cast their ballots with the unlimited money they can contribute to elections and candidates.

What happened during last week and the debate over the budget and the possible shut down of the entire government because of certain issues of concern to a new party “Tea Party” a party driven by very narrow ideological and self serving interests with “veto” powers over the affairs of the nation and the interests of people. The Tea Party thanks to lackey spineless politicians became more powerful than both Democrats and Republicans holding the entire nation hostage.

Of course the Tea Party is not the only group or “political party” that is more powerful than both the Democrats and Republicans. There is the National Rifle Association “NRA” whose power, influence and reach is more powerful than an M-16 or a Bazooka or an RPJ and an Abram tank, with Congress and state houses held “prisoners of war”.

Then there is the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee “AIPAC” or what I will call, the American Jewish Party of a 100,000 strong paying members that is even more powerful than the combined Tea Party, the NRA, the American Medical Association, the American labor unions, the AARP, and can count on 80 senators and some 300 members of the house as loyal obedient members and always count on the president, secretary of state as servant members no matter if they are Republicans or Democrats. The American Jewish Party has the power and authority over Congress, it can draft legislations and shove it down the throat of members of Congress and can circulate a letter gaining 80% signatures of members of Congress without even daring to read. It can count on the Hills staff to decide the votes on the floor. It can take us to wars, to financial bankruptcy without our representatives standing up putting America First.

Yes, we seem to forget it is our “votes” that can counts, not the money and the PR and we allowed a bankrupt political and electoral system to take over and marginalized our value and importance as citizens and voters. We simply abdicated and gave up our own independent thinking and intelligence and surrender to the “sound bites” of campaign ads.  We as citizens gave up the right to choose, gave up the rights to question and gave up the rights to demand that our elected officials put America First. We abdicated our rights of citizenship by allowing these special interest groups and the money they can raise to determine the fait of the nation and our rights as citizen.

When we think about it, there are no organizations or groups or lobbies that are dedicated to putting America First, making sure the best interests of the nation and people takes priority over any thing else and making sure that decisions are made with America First in mind, not the special and narrow interests of the likes of the Tea Party, NRA and AIPAC. America First ahead of partisan politics, ahead of special interests lobbies.

  • Whatever happens to the one man/woman vote and why we allowed presidential, senatorial and gubernatorial elections to become so expensive marginalizing if not limiting our rights as citizens? I never could understand why a senatorial race requires $25 millions or with most of the money coming from out of state and from special interests such as AIPAC, NRA and Tea Party among others? And why out of state special interests determine who wins an election in Virginia or Texas? And why our political system allows out of state money and interest determine elections in New York, Florida, or North Carolina? It makes no sense at all. The money coming from outside the congressional district or from outside the state takes away much of our rights as citizen and a voter in the congressional district and in the state elections.

Perhaps what we need as citizen more than ever is to put America First in all elections and give potential candidates the choice between money from outside of congressional districts and from outside the state and our votes. Time for all of us to take back our country and our nation and our government away from these special interest groups.  Let us make “America First” the litmus tests for all elected officials.

With tens of millions of Veterans we can do it, and we should do it.

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?
