Historical fact: Independence Day is a celebration of freedom from government tyranny independence day

Happy July 4th, my fellow Americans. It’s the Independence Day weekend! Independence from what, you might ask? As even the somewhat revisionist history taught in public schools readily admits, July 4th is a celebration of independence from government tyranny under British rule.

And what kind of government tyranny, specifically? Well, the kind that involves warrantless searches of peoples’ homes, where government agents could just waltz right into your private home for no reason and conduct a search without even getting a court-issued warrant. That was a form of government terrorism waged against the people, and when the USA declared its independence from British rule, it adopted a new rule at home that specifically forbade such tyrannical government actions.

That rule is called The Fourth Amendment. It protects citizens from illegal searches and seizures undertaken by a tyrannical lawless government.

Yet, sadly, in just the last decade, the U.S. government has now thrown out the Fourth Amendment and is back to operatingexactly like the British tyrants we defeated to earn our independencein the first place! Now in the United States, TSA agents at the airport conduct illegal searches of travelers on a routine basis, with no search warrants issued, no just cause and no legal justification whatsoever. The TSA has become to modern-day America what the British tyrants were to the colonials in the 18th century.

But it gets even better. Today, police in Indiana now have the court-affirmed “right” to conduct warrantless house-to-house searches without any just cause whatsoever. The state supreme court there has ruled that police no longer need warrants to break into private homes and search them for anything they want, at any hour, for any reason! (…)

Even worse, courts are also ruling that you cannot resist an unlawful entry into your home by a police officer– even if that police officer is committing a crime by breaking into your home! (…)

Police brutality is now so widespread and common across the U.S. that police are beating, arresting, tasering and charging speech-impaired teenagers with resisting arrest! (…)

Some police, it turns out, are so uneducated that they interpret a speech impediment as some kind of mockery or “disrespect.”

Not all cops are bad, of course. Most cops are hard-working citizens who perform a thankless job for wildly insufficient pay. They put their lives on the line to help keep our local communities safe, and they deserve our thanks for that effort. But increasingly, the bad cops seem to be losing their cool and forgetting they are supposed to serve the public, not terrorize the public like some sort of badge-wearing gang of government thugs.

Tenth Amendment protections

After theWar of Independence, other rules were written into the new U.S. Constitution to make sure the People could never again be abused by government tyrants. The Tenth Amendment provided for states’ rights, limiting the role of the federal government in controlling local issues.

But the federal government now says it has supreme power over all states, and it forces itself onto the states through things like airport screening programs (TSA) and the nationwide prohibition of marijuana, involving federal DEA agents raiding medical marijuana facilities that have been legally licensed by the state. The federal government, in other words, respects no state law whatsoever.

Efforts are under way to reassert states’ rights and nullify the tyrannical control of the federal government. Seewww.NullifyNow.comand learn about The Tenth Amendment Center and its work to protect the freedom of citizens in every state.

Obamacare and economic tyranny

The federal government is also now engaged in economic tyranny by forcing citizens to purchase a health insurance policy from a failed “sick care” system that doesn’t even work! It’s called “Obamacare,” and the courts are ruling that the federal government now has this power to mandate that all Americans buy whatever private product the government orders them to buy!

Take this one step further, and soon you’ll see the government ordering all Americans to buy an American-made car, or buy a government-mandated life insurance policy, or buy a new house to lift the housing market. Under this bizarre interpretation of theCommerce Clausethere is absolutely nothing the government can’t control in your life as long as it can argue there is some economic impact on others. The government can even force you to stop growing corn on your own farm, even if you don’t sell it to anyone! (…)

Those who refuse to buy what the government orders them to buy will be economically punished or even imprisoned in “debtors prisons.” This is the new America, where the government can now order you how to spend the every-shrinking portion of your income that they didn’t already confiscate in taxes.

Free Speech is routinely censored in America

Not to leave the First Amendment untouched, America’s current tyrannical government also strongly censors free speech. Remember all the people who were arrested for slow-dancing at the Jefferson Memorial? (…)

Or how about the U.S. government’s arrest and imprisonment of nutritional supplement manufacturers who tell the truth about the health benefits of their products on their own websites? (…)

On top of that, we now have “free speech zones” where you’re limited to protesting off-camera and out of the way of any important event. Plus, the federal government is actively raiding and taking down websites that merelylinkto other websites where you can download movies or pay-per-view events. This is being done without any warrant, any trial, or any due process whatsoever.

Free Speech is under assault, and it doesn’t matter whether your speech is on the left, the right or the middle — if it questions the government’s illegal actions or policies in any way, you will be targeted for censorship.

Illegal wars

To top it all off, President Obama is now engaged in an illegal war against Libya, and the man is so stupendously arrogant that he says his actions don’t even need to be legal under the Constitution at all!

“There may be a time in which there was a serious question as to whether the War Powers Resolution was constitutional,” Obama said in a recent press conference. “I don’t have to get to the question.” (…)

In other words, Obama thinks he’s the king, just like the King of England who we fought a revolution against in the 18th century. Obama thinks he does not need to follow ANY law, thereby violating the very tenant of our Republic, which is a nation based on laws that apply to everyone, including those who govern.

When the sitting President of the USA declares that his actions don’t even need to be reviewed for their constitutionality, the republic is lost. Doesn’t this guy even remember that he SWORE to uphold and defend the Constitution during his initial swearing in as President?

The Patriot Act – George Bush’s gift to freedom

Any discuss of freedom in America must, of course, include a reference to the Patriot Act, signed into law by President Bush in the aftermath of the false-flag 9/11 attack. The Patriot Act is to freedom what napalm is to peace.

Specifically, the Patriot Act revokes all the rights enumerated by the Bill of Rights for any person the government accuses of being involved in “terrorism” of any kind, which can include protests by animal rights advocates or even just lighting farts with your fraternity buddies while sitting on an airplane.

The Patriot Act takes America back to the days of the King’s rule where only the King is granted the right to rule (by God, no less) and yet he himself is subject to no rule (no law). This is the situation in America today, where government agents such as the FDA, DEA, TSA, FCC, FTC, EPA, USDA and many others routinely engage in criminal acts against the People, against nature and against common law. Yet they continue to get away with these crimes because they answer to no law (and the People never hold them accountable).

What are you celebrating this July 4th?

In summary, if you celebrate Independence Day in America, you are celebrating the result of a violent revolutionary war against a tyrannical government whose crimes against the People have all been re-created right here at home, via the American government!

Where we once fought for independence, we now lay down and surrender our freedoms. The masses of sheeple have forgotten what it means to live free, and they have allowed a tyrannical government to treat them with the same disdain that the British empire once dealt out as routine.

The situation has become so perverse in America that the very act of being “patriotic” is now considered a fringe idea, almost smacking of so-called “home-grown terrorism.” In the same vein, some Big Government advocates are even suggesting that celebrating Independence Day is, all by itself, some sort of evil. The editor of one prominent progressive magazine (I’m not linking to it because they don’t deserve the link credit) even said recently, “My heart does not beat faster at the strains of the Star Spangled Banner, much less at the sight of F-16s flying overhead to kick off the show. You see, I don’t believe in patriotism. You can call me unpatriotic if you’d like, but really I’m anti-patriotic.”

In one sense, this editor makes a valid point thatmindless patriotismas some sort of worship of a warped government agenda (a la Hitler’s patriotism) is a destructive thing, indeed. But Independence Day isn’t about mindless patriotism; it’s about recognizing the sacrifices our forefathers (and mothers) made to deliver afree republicto us that we might hold on to for more than just a couple of centuries. Sadly, what was once a free republic has now become a Big Government police state. And the 4th of July has, for nearly all Americans, become nothing more than an excuse to eat cancer-causing hot dogs while watching pretty colors explode in the sky.

Big Government is the enemy of independence and freedom

Paul Revere once warned, “The British are coming!” What he probably could never imagine is that, in 2011, a far more appropriate warning might be, “The government is coming!”

Batten down your doors and shutter your windows; bring in the dog and dim your lights. The government is coming to your home next, and they need no warrant nor even any justification whatsoever to shoot you in your own hallway (…), or kidnap your teenage daughter (…) simply because you refuse to medicate her with a dangerous psychotropic drug.

The law enforcement arm of Big Government will threaten to shoot you if you videotape their tyrannical crimes against the People (…). They will taser you if you’re a paraplegic and therefore can’t get up out of your wheelchair (…). If you don’t grovel to the false authority of the government today, you may be assaulted, intimidated, censored and then charged with interfering with police business merely for trying to behave as an informed citizen and serve the greater good of society.

At the same time, the federal government is the criminal element that’s arming Mexican drug gangs with tens of thousands of firearms that are now being used in crimes back in the USA. This has now been openly admitted by ATF agents who were ordered to do so by Washington officials, and NaturalNews will be publishing a detailed account of this story soon.

The bottom line in all this is that celebrating Independence Day used to actually mean something, but today it is a shallow display of fireworks to a populace that has forgotten what any of it means — a population that grovels at the feet of its masters and welcomes yet more tyranny with each passing election. Who will they vote for in the next election? Unless the candidate’s name ends with “Paul,” it hardly matters, because nearly every politician in Washington today is a traitor to the founding principles of America– and a traitor to freedom itself.

Nearly all of them voted for the Patriot Act, for example, and they keep voting to extend it every chance they get. There’ never enough security, it seems, in a nation that propagandizes a falsified “war on terror” as its primary strategy for enslaving its own people. The corruption of Washington D.C. — and the name Harry Reid comes to mind for some reason — is truly legendary.

We are living through the final days of the Roman Empire, just as it began to collapse. History will wonder how so many of us could have been so blind to what was happening right in front of us. The answer, of course, is that the people were too blinded by the fireworks to stop and think about what they are meant to symbolize.

And yes, in case you were wondering, the feature picture for this article is a picture of me standing behind an American flag that blocks my mouth. The symbolism here should be obvious: That in today’s Big Government political environment, we’re all supposed to believe that being “patriotic” means shutting our mouths and saying nothing.

Nonsense, I say. Patriotism goes hand in hand with speaking our minds. Only a free nation is a nation worth fighting for.

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?
