To Trust U.S. Government & ‘News’Media Is to Be a Dupe

To Trust U.S. Government & ‘News’Media Is to Be a Dupe

Who trusts the U.S. government and American newsmedia nowadays? Only dupes possibly can. Just look at the recent history, for the evidence on that:

The U.S. Government and newsmedia lied us into invading Iraq in 2003, and hid their coup that overthrew the democratically elected progressive government in Iran in 1953, and lied to say that the CIA wasnt behind the overthrow and suicide’ of Salvador Allende in Chile in 1973 and now theyre lying us into war yet again, this war against Syria (where we, and our allied jihadists who are fighting to overthrow Assad, have already destroyed the lives of the people). (Were doing this, mind you, on humanitarian grounds.) Its also a war against Syrias defenders Iran and Russia, which war against Russia would be World War III goodbye to all our dreams. And for what? All this destruction, for what? Will Trump actually take us that final mile, to Armageddon? Hes got a Congress and newsmedia that are almost 100% supporting his reversal of his previous foreign policy by his outright bombing of Syria bombing the government thats fighting against the jihadists exactly the opposite of what he had been promising to do when he was a candidate for the Presidency.

After these many decades of bloody shameful government, and newsmedia American Establishment lies, who but an outright fool would trust them now, regarding Bashar al-Assad, Vladimir Putin, Syria, Iran, and Russia? Or: is it actually okay that only decades afterward is the truth being revealed to Americans, that Americas aristocracy and its agents had, decades earlier, perpetrated atrocities abroad (such as in Iran, Iraq, and Chile), and blamed the helpless victims for everything? Is it okay for the lies to be spread as news, at the time, and to become publicly known as having been lies, only decades afterward, when the history-books get written, and meanwhile for us to be voting for those thug-politicians all the while, whom the newsmedia had deceived us into thinking to have been acceptable to lead us? This is democracy?

What about the assassinations of JFK, RFK, and MLK and what about 9/11? Who but an idiot today would still trust the official story about those events? Who SHOULD trust them? Should you?

Now, regarding specifically the alleged sarin gas attack that was allegedly perpetrated by Bashar al-Assad, on 4 April 2017, and that the U.S. regime is now also alleging that Russia, meaning Vladimir Putin, approved: Is that just another in the long and sordid history of U.S. government and Establishment lies?

Lets consider the evidence on this matter:

First, read this. Did you click onto the links wherever you had any questions about the authenticity of the evidence in that article? After having read that, do you still believe the official story regarding this gas-attack, which could get the U.S. military into war in the battlefields of Syria against the Syrian government, and against Russia?

And did you read the extensive evidence that the 21 August 2013 East Ghouta sarin gas attack which Obama had said crossed his red line, was actually a set-up job by the U.S. and allied governments working in conjunction with its jihadists in Syria to create a pretext for U.S. troops to help the jihadists to overthrow Assad? It all needs to be understood in the context of the underlying reasons behind the U.S. governments longstanding campaign to overthrow and replace Syrias government.

In any case, more and more evidence is coming to light which is inconsistent with the hypothesis that the Syrian government was behind the 4 April 2017 Syrian gas-attack, and that is consistent with the jihadists the forces who are fighting against the government being behind it.

The time when its excusable to be a dupe of the U.S. government and its newsmedia (which are controlled by the same lying aristocracy that controls the top politicians) is long-since past. Americans now need to know our governments ugly recent history, and to understand todays news in light of it.

Then read this, and decide whether or not you trust the Trump-regime’s allegation that Russians had foreknowledge of the chemical attack and that Russias goal was to cover up the Syrian governments culpability for the chemical attack.

An American news-site about newsmedia headlined on April 11th, Out of 47 Major Editorials on Trumps Syria Strikes, Only One Opposed , and reported that, Of the top 100 US newspapers, 47 ran editorials on President Donald Trumps Syria airstrikes last week: 39 in favor, seven ambiguous and only one opposed to the military attack.

On April 10th, CBS News headlined “What Americans think about U.S. strike on Syria and reported, Fifty-seven percent of Americans approve of the airstrike against Syrian military targets calling immoral the Syrian regimes use of chemical weapons that led to the strike but most are leery of any military involvement beyond airstrikes, a CBS News poll shows. President Trumps overall approval rating edged up. Do those findings show an intelligent American public, or instead a mass of dupes?

On April 12th, Morning Consult bannered Americans Trust Trump the Most to End Syrian Conflict. 57% trusted him to end it.

Heres the actual background of the war in Syria its the war that Trump is continuing and escalating, but which was previously Obamas (and the Clintons and the Bushes, and going all the way back to Trumans) war, for pipelines to be built through Syria, to transport the Sauds (Saudi Arabias) oil, and the Thanis (Qatars) gas, into the worlds largest oil-and-gas market, the EU. The Sauds and the Thanis are the main funders of Al Qaeda, Islamic State and other jihadist groups, and are also the main funders of the moderate rebel forces (the Al-Qaeda-led forces) in Syria, and pay for the U.S.-made weapons that those jihadists (most of whom are foreigners imported into Syria, and all of whom are fundamentalist Sunnis, as are the Sauds and the Thanis) are using, to overthrow Assads government.

Then, consider this, the most authoritative analysis of all, of the White Houses evidence regarding the April 4th Syrian gas-attack:

After detailed decimation of President Trumps intelligence justifying his invasion of Syria, the MIT specialist on such intelligence-analysis, Dr. Theodore Postol, concludes:

I have worked with the intelligence community in the past, and I have grave concerns about the politicization of intelligence that seems to be occurring with more frequency in recent times but I know that the intelligence community has highly capable analysts in it. And if those analysts were properly consulted about the claims in the White House document they would have not approved the document going forward.

I am available to expand on these comments substantially. I have only had a few hours to quickly review the alleged White House intelligence report. But a quick perusal shows without a lot of analysis that this report cannot be correct, and it also appears that this report was not properly vetted by the intelligence community.

This is a very serious matter.

President Obama was initially misinformed about supposed intelligence evidence that Syria was the perpetrator of the August 21, 2013 nerve agent attack in Damascus. This is a matter of public record.

President Obama stated that his initially false understanding was that the intelligence clearly showed that Syria was the source of the nerve agent attack. This false information was corrected when the then Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, interrupted the President while he was in an intelligence briefing. According to President Obama, Mr. Clapper told the President that the intelligence that Syria was the perpetrator of the attack was not a slamdunk.

The question that needs to be answered by our nation is how was the president initially misled about such a profoundly important intelligence finding?

The U.S. newsmedia hid from the public Dr. Postols disproof of the Obama regimes still-continuing assertions that the 21 August 2013 sarin attack was from Syrias government instead of from the moderate rebels (jihadists) whom the U.S. supported. Will they hide from the U.S. public his disproof of the U.S. regimes latest such scam backing the actual perpetrators of a war-crime will they do now as they did then?

On 13 April 2017, I posted a news-report on the just-released detailed new investigation by Dr. Postol, of the April 4th Syrian gas-attack (linking, as I always do, to the original document), and submitted it to all of Americas large national-news media (and to most of the medium-sized and smaller ones, as well). I headlined it, The Money-Quote from the Postol Report on the Recent Gas Attack in Syria . We shall see how many if any of the large ones do publish that news-report. (Just google the headline.) Nobody can say that Americas large news organizations are simply ignorant of the reality on this vitally important matter.

Can anyone but a dupe be supporting Donald Trump, now? He may be a knowing and willing participant in these war-crimes, but among the American public, only dupes can still be supporting them in this decades-long effort by the U.S. aristocracy to overthrow the only person whom a majority of Syrians want to be their nations leader. The effort hasnt succeeded, even after all of these decades trying, but is Trump really determined to be the person who would carry it to victory? How much would he want such a victory? Should the Americans who voted for him, view him, now, as a traitor, for having so quickly gone exactly against what he had promised when he campaigned for the Presidency? Certainly, he is a liar. But are his dupes remaining dupes? Time will provide the answer to that.

And, maybe, this time, Trump will offer a deal that can and will be rejected by everyone. Maybe his reach, finally, is exceeding his grasp.

The answer could come soon. But, clearly, the people who own Americas newsmedia are almost 100% supportive of his 100% reversal on Syria, on Russia, and on World War III. And, the American public, if not as uniformly supportive of the American governments war-crime unprovoked invasion without even having provided any evidence to back up their asserted and by-now impossible-to-believe cause to invade, as America as the policeman, judge, jury, and executioner, for the entire world are over 50% duped, even today, even after all those many decades of having been duped into invading countries that had never invaded us.

Regarding Syria, there is no way, now, that either side can back out and still keep its honor. For Russia, and for Syria, and for Iran, its honor is to never yield up its sovereignty. For the United States, its honor is: what is it? What it is, is to coerce the entire world to its aristocracys will, no matter what. That, today, is what remains, of Americas honor: international dictatorship, reigning through imposing fear worldwide.

Could this be the way to World War Three? Which side will back down? What if neither side will?

How does anybody make a deal with somebody like Hitler? WW III would be even worse than that far worse. Is Trump like that? Is the aristocracy that hes trying to please, so horrific as that? The evidence thus far is clearly yes. And, without a doubt, most Americans are their dupes (just like in 1933 Germany).

The American aristocracy, who are accustomed to winning, might feel that this is just another game, which they must, as always before, win. Its actually no game at all; and, if they dont cave soon, itll be lose-lose all around, even for the billionaires in their luxurious nuclear-proof bunkers, such as here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here. Itll be all for naught, even for them even for the super-dupers.

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?
