Just the Beginning

By John Tate

Last night, both the House and Senate passed the so-called “Patriot” Act.

Losing sucks.  Sorry — there’s just no way to sugarcoat that.

It hurts to see politicians patting themselves on the back and smiling for the cameras after supporting one of the worst violations of the Constitution in our Republic’s history.

But I can’t even begin to describe how proud I am of what you and other C4L members achieved this week.

Fellow Patriot, even though we lost the final votes, I’m considering this a massive victory for our young and growing organization.

Just think about it for a moment.

When the final votes were tallied, 23 senators voted against final passage — up from 8 on Monday.  In the House, 31 Republicans voted against the bill.  It was only able to pass with the support of 54 Democrats.

Our pressure resulted in an historic level of opposition to a bill the establishment expected to easily ram through Congress — and by a voice vote that would avoid any record of their positions.

Together, we joined with Rand Paul and helped a freshman senator stand up to one of the most powerful Senate majority leaders in recent memory — and make him change his plans.

We even made the White House nervous, as it released a last minute statement begging for more power.  (Matter of fact, rather than let their spying on Americans lapse for even a minute, Obama actually had a machine sign his signature on the law because he was out of the country!)

When the statists tried to steamroll the “Patriot” Act extension through in February this year, you and thousands of other C4L members across the country made your voices heard, and they were only able to muster a 90-day extension.

During this most recent battle, not only were we fighting against Harry Reid and the Democrats, but also Mitch McConnell and the rest of the GOP leadership, and, in the end, even the NRA, as they publicly took the establishment’s side against gun owners.

Our fight was an important one.

Not only did we put the House and Senate on record for supporting spying on American citizens, but we put the Senate on record on two important amendments – protecting gun owners and your bank records.

Your actions over the past week are what made a difference.  Campaign for Liberty members (along with our friends at the National Association for Gun Rights) generated thousands of calls into the Senate, supporting Rand Paul and the Constitution.

We shut down phone lines and made senators reconsider their positions.

And those phone calls forced Harry Reid to allow Rand to bring up his amendments and debate their importance on the Senate floor.

It provided an important opportunity for the message of liberty, as our challenge to the authority of the surveillance state was entered into the Congressional Record. In the future, it cannot be said we did nothing to fight back.

Senator Paul proved himself a political hero, and I’d encourage you to take a moment to watch his interview with Judge Napolitano from when he was in the heat of the battle.

Though the controversial provisions contained in the “Patriot” Act were extended for another four years, you and I showed the strength and determination of the liberty movement.

Campaign for Liberty is less than three years old, and we are just beginning to flex our political muscles.  It is incredible to think about what we have accomplished so far, and there is no limit to what we can achieve in the future.

Over the next few weeks, C4L staff will be going over all the statements and hours of video we were able to collect during this debate.  Whether they realize it or not, some politicians made enormous gaffes during this fight, and we intend to make sure they are held accountable.

And when 2015 rolls around for another extension of these provisions, you better believe C4L will be ready to win a total victory over the establishment.

Before we can continue to grow our organization and bring millions of more Americans to this fight, I need your help.  Please, if you are able, click here to chip in $10 or whatever you can afford.  Your contribution will allow C4L to ramp up its efforts to restore our liberties and reclaim our Constitution.

Standing up to the political establishment is never easy and is seldom popular, but with a dedicated membership base like the one C4L has, I know we have a strong future ahead of us.

Remember friend, without the rout at Lexington, there could have been no victory at Concord Bridge.

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?
