A Congress to Be Proud of

Dissident Voice Article

By William R. Stanley

Prime Minister Netanyahu’s recent address to a joint session of Congress was an outstanding personal success. Fifty-seven times the Congress applauded including 25 standing ovations. How sweet it was! No doubt some members were more perfunctory in their applause or slow to rise to their feet for those numerous standing ovations. In this particular Congress it isn’t politically healthy to be seen behaving too different from the masses. The atmosphere surely was something to behold, as if Winston Churchill, George Washington, Mother Theresa, and Nelson Mandela were personified in the person of the speaker. Here spoke the leader of a country with a national product comparable to that of Italy, supported consistently by legislation and political action on the part of his hosts. These include billions of dollars in monetary largess, sophisticated weaponry transfers often without cost and consistent political cover in a generally Israel-hostile United Nations. Israel must be a very special friend to be worthy of so much support and adoration. All the same, was there not one among 535 senators and representatives willing to speak out and question certain constructs of this almost mass hysteria? Perhaps scenes of this nature are the costs of a democracy?

Are our representatives so lacking in recent historical perspective? Congress surely is suffering from some form of mass dementia. Have members no recollections of the 1967 attack on the USS Liberty, an American naval ship operating off the Gaza coastline monitoring the Egyptian-Israeli war? The attackers were Israeli military aircraft and naval torpedo boats. The attack lasted nearly two hours and killed 34 Americans while wounding scores more. Mistakes are part of warfare and it might be that none of the Israeli pilots flying as low as 200 feet above water saw the oversize American flag(s). But Israeli aircraft had been shadowing the Liberty for six consecutive hours prior to the attack. Perhaps the pilots were not properly trained in flag recognition? Perhaps the torpedo boat commanders also lacked training in flag recognition? More awkward to explain was the concerted and lengthy effort by the torpedo boats and planes to destroy all life saving apparatus aboard the Liberty during and after a torpedo struck the ship?

Life rafts and life boats all were targeted almost as if witnesses to the unprovoked attack might later prove embarrassing.

On the other hand, if these attacks were accidental as claimed by the Israeli Government, why have American investigators consistently been denied access to the pilots and boat commanders or to review communications between attackers and headquarters? This is strange behavior on the part of our special friend and trusted ally. More telling, is this not strange collective behavior by members of Congress who seem confused in recognizing just what country they are elected in and whose citizens they are paid to represent. Surely sailors killed during that 1967 unprovoked attack on the Liberty warrant congressional investigations and less applause for the leader of the country responsible for the killings. Can one imagine applause and standing ovations for the Japanese Prime Minister speaking to a joint session of Congress and denying events that occurred at Pearl Harbor?

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.

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?
