Establishment Media Re Brands Racist, Bloodthirsty Rebels as Freedom Fighters 050911top2

Western-backed Al-Qaeda rebels are preparing to subvert the post-Gaddafi government in Libya according to intelligence analysts, as one U.S. official accuses NATO of using air strikes to pave the way for terrorists, while the establishment media re-brands terrorist leader Abdel Hakim Belhaj as a respected freedom fighter.

“Jihadists among the Libyan rebels revealed plans last week on the Internet to subvert the post-Moammar Gadhafi government and create an Islamist state, according to U.S. intelligence agencies,” reports the Washington Times.

“U.S. officials said spy agencies are stepping up surveillance of Islamist-oriented elements among Libyan rebels. A government report circulated Tuesday said extremists were observed “strategizing” on Internet forums about how to set up an Islamist state in Libya after the regime of Col. Gadhafi is defeated.”

One defense official goes further, warning how, “We’re helping pave the way for them” through NATO airstrikes and other support.”

In a transparent effort to sideline increasing awareness about NATO helping Al-Qaeda terrorists seize control of the country, the establishment media, after months of all but ignoring the story, has now re-branded Al-Qaeda commander Abd Al-Hakim Belhadj, whose 1000-strong LIFG army now controls most of Tripoli, as a respected freedom fighter.

Despite the fact that a 2007 West Point Combating Terrorism Center (CTC) report noted how the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), which is led by Belhadj, provided more fighters per capita to combat US troops in Iraq than any other nation, or in other words was primarily responsible for killing American soldiers, the media has dispensed with such facts and instead portrayed Belhadj as a victim of CIA rendition in collusion with Gaddafi.

Ignoring the fact that the Belhadj’s LIGF is listed as a foreign terrorist organization on the U.S. State Department’s website, the BBC today describes the terrorist leader as “The commander of anti-government forces in Tripoli,” before making him out to be a victim of harsh treatment.

The New York Times also afforded Belhadj a more than friendly platform on which to broadcast his new role as a “grateful ally of the United States and NATO,” in a piece entitled, In Libya, Former Enemy Is Recast in Role of Ally. Recast by whom? By the New York Times itself of course, which completely omits the fact that Belhadj’s fighters are now busy rounding up black Libyans for incarceration, torture and execution.

The fact that the corporate press has gone all out to give Belhadj’s character a facelift, presenting him to the world as a legitimate player in post-Gaddafi Libya, when in reality he directed terrorists who killed U.S. troops, underscores how complicit the media has been in selling the entire humanitarian hoax behind NATO’s war.

However, as the Washington Times story notes, members of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, which according to separate reports has refused to hand over power to the Transitional National Council, are likely to be renouncing their terrorist ties “just for show,” with the aid of the BBC and the NY Times, as a ploy through which to maintain their political legitimacy.

Evidence that the terrorists’ new found love for freedom and democracy is indeed “just for show,” and a camouflage for aggressive plans to turn Libya into an Islamist state, can be seen in their treatment of Libya’s large black population.

As we reported last week, migrant black workers have been subjected to abuse, torture, mass round-ups and executions at the hands of Libya’s new liberators.

Amnesty International workers witnessed the bodies of blacks being dumped by rebels after they were killed at makeshift hospital facility that bore the symbol of the Islamic Crescent.

Incarcerating thousands of blacks in prison camps can hardly be judged the work of freedom fighters, as the BBC, the NY Times and others have attempted to characterize Belhadj’s LIFG.

However, just as the press could be relied upon to recast NATO’s aggressive bombardment of Libya as a humanitarian peace mission, they can also be trusted when it comes to portraying western-backed racist, bloodthirsty rebels as righteous bringers of peace, joy and happiness.

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?
