Happy Holidays — Nimitz Class Carriers Deliver Presents Across the Globe, 24/7, Two Decades Later

Happy Holidays — Nimitz Class Carriers Deliver Presents Across the Globe, 24/7, Two Decades Later

by Paul Haeder / December 9th, 2013

Oh, drats, someone in my family line, in Scotland, sent me this link as an example of, quoting, great American stick-to-it gumption, superiority and bad-ass imperialism.

No wonder the Iranians want this ship (aircraft carrier) out of the Persian Gulf. This is a great example of United States of America technology, teamwork and strength in action.  Hang on for the ride!”

Yep, this is the export of America, North America, that is — a nuclear powered, $4.5 billion dollar junk-killing-droning-child-wedding party-bombing-human death toll creator.

Note the stats:

The teamwork is so well displayed, you know, American (sic) ingenuity. We have this pile of death for the price of 80 percent of our 311 million population in the USA having 7 percent of total wealth of this country so this USS Capitalism Pusher can dominate the world’s resources, the world’s countries. Whew, only the Alexanders write the history books, no?

We can’t even plow our cities’ roads, house our cities’ homeless, educate our cities’ children, tender care for our cities’ lower middle and lower poor classes.

We look like deer caught in the headlights of corporate military industrial complex fascism. This Aircraft Carrier is a wet dream of the industrialists, the lobbyists, the rotten political class, the One Percent. Well, if you watch the video, brought to us by that warped Channel, Discovery, we see that the average age of folks working on this death machine is 19 years old? Nice little cross-section of humanity as ambassadors of the continuing criminal enterprise of DoD, DARPA, NSA, WB, Mercenaries r’ Us, et al.

Amerika — I can’t believe anyone in their right mind would prop this evil ship up as some great testament to USA ingenuity. We have failing children by the millions (in a privatized education system that wants functional illiteracy for the consumer age), an obese population, a poor population, 50 percent unemployment of youth, black youth. We have idiots who make idiotic movies, TV, junk, obsolete-tech-stuff-before-leaving-assembly-line who control 93 percent of the public wealth, commons, and goods. This naval machine is an embarrassment to humanity, to everything these Christian soldiers believe their Christ could and might have been.

Talk about upsetting the money changers and merchants of death. Ya think old Jesus would just go out and christen one of these galleons of genocide?

This machine costs us how much just in dollars? Around $1.45 million per day. Forget about the bad-will this machine exports. Blowback, anyone?

  • 160 million per year just for the personnel
  • add aircraft fuel and maintenance parts, and you’re looking at closer to$400 million per year
  • add the cost of the carrier ($4.5 billion) and divide it over its lifetime (about 40 years) and you’re looking at about $530,000,000 per year which is close to $1,450,000 per day.
  • Carriers launch on average 18 times (with 18 recoveries) per day including time in port and time in shipyads.
  • That means each carrier launch costs $80,600.

Note that there are 10 of these in the USA’s little arsenal. Doing McDonald’s napkin math, well, what’s that: $14.5 million a day to run these things?

Haeder lived one-year in Seattle working for “the” SEIU (Service Employees International Union), the largest private sector union in the USA (in their pro-Obama PR materials), to organize adjuncts in Bezos-Boeing-Gates land, after having worked as a communications, language, composition, writing instructor of the freeway flyer variety in El Paso for the University of Texas, the El Paso Community College, language institutes, Park College, the US Army, La Tuna Federal Correctional Institute, Packard Electric in Juarez, New Mexico State University, and several cities in Mexico. In Washington State, he taught at Gonzaga University, Spokane Community College, Spokane Falls Community College. He’s job hunting — at that golden age of 56 (and counting down) … just what the progressive-left-of-center non-profits in the Vancouver-Portland “area” want (NOT).

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 happening 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".

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 IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. Or if you need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and 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 and other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) 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?
