Why Did the News-Media Hide This Important Fact?

Why Did the News-Media Hide This Important Fact?

On December 13th, the following news-story was distributed for publication to virtually all U.S.-and-allied major (and many minor) newsmedia, but it was published only by four small alt-news sites (washingtonsblog being one of them) even though the article links to all the evidence, all of which is solid. 100% of the mainstream news-sites refused to publish any of the facts that are disclosed here; its been, thus far, a total cover-up, in 100% of the mainstream:

POLL: By 2-to-1, Americans Oppose Moving U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem

Eric Zuesse, originally posted at strategic-culture.org

A reliable scientific poll of 2,000 Americans, taken during 1-6 November 2017 just a month before U.S. President Donald Trump announced that Americas Embassy will move to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv showed that 63% of Americans were opposed to the move, and 31% supported it. Here was the question, as asked:

Q61. Having thought about it, do you support or oppose the United States immediately moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem?

Total Rep Dem Ind

1. Support 31% 49% 15% 28%

2. Oppose 63% 44% 81% 60%

This was the latest Critical Issues Poll by the University of Maryland and the Nielsen Scarborough polling organization, and it showed that U.S. President Trump didn’t actually represent the American people when he issued this historic order. He may have represented Israelis, and he may have represented American billionaires, but he represented less than a third of Americans who expressed an opinion about the matter.

As of the morning of December 11th (when this is being written), no poll yet has been published about this question subsequent to Trumps dictat concerning it. After such polls are published, one can identify to what extent (if any), Trumps decision has affected American public opinion on the issue. But, as noted, American public opinion wasnt reflected in it at the time he made this decision. Only the collective opinion of Americas 569 billionaires shaped it (as the evidence to be shown here will indicate); the collective opinion of the American public didnt matter, and this is normal for decisions and legislation by the U.S. federal Government. This decision by Trump is just another example of that broader phenomenon: only the very richest are actually represented by Americas federal Government; the desires (or even needs) of Americas public are ignored, unless the billionaires happen to want the same governmental policy that the public do. But, regarding the move of Americas embassy to Jerusalem, they didnt.

Furthermore, no poll has ever been taken (or at least none that is currently on the Web) regarding the two options “should move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem and “should not move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem ; and, so, its unknown whether the majority of Americans ever did actually support ultimately moving the Embassy to Jerusalem in advance of a peace-agreement being signed between the Israelis and the Palestinians such as previous American Presidents promised, and Trump delivered.

Another interesting finding from this Critical Issues Poll was the following:

Q50. Do you view Russia as an ally or foe?

Total Rep Dem Ind

1. Ally 11% 14% 7% 15%

2. Foe 42% 29% 55% 33%

3. Neither 47% 56% 37% 50%

Despite all of the intense propaganda that the mainstream U.S. media (owned and controlled by billionaires) publish alleging that Russia is a foe or enemy of the American people, only Democrats generally believe it. Perhaps Americas mass of seculars (Democrats being by far the less religious Party) are adopting this belief (associated, as it is, with a belief that Hillary Clinton possibly lost the 2016 election on account of Russia throwing the U.S. election to Trump, instead of her being a lousy candidate, chosen by her corrupt Party, which she then actually controlled on behalf of her billionaire-backers), as being a canon of secular faith, unchallengeable by the facts such as by the fact that the U.S. Governments case for the Democratic Partys theory is loaded with lies and cover-ups, regardless of whether or not any particular aspect of the Democrats case against Russia is true. And, moreover, the U.S. did far worse to Russia, and to other nations, than is even claimed by the Democrats to have been perpetrated by Russia against American democracy. For example, the Democrats own President Barack Obama ran the coup that overthrew and replaced the democratically elected Government of Ukraine in February 2014, right next-door to Russia; and that coup was as bad as if Russia were to have perpetrated a coup overthrowing and replacing the democratically elected Government of Mexico, or of Canada; so, Democrats accusations regarding what Russia did or didnt do concerning Americas 2016 election are, at the very best, throwing stones at Russia from a very hypocritical and fragile glass American house. And, at the worst (and especially because of Obamas then imposing U.S. anti-Russia sanctions), its bullying of Russia, by the U.S. regime, for Russias having taken defensive actions against Americas aggressive actions. That coup and bullying, and the billionaires press-coverup of them, too, all come from Americas billionaires (who were behind the entire operation), not at all from the U.S. public. Did Obama promise in his campaigns, that he would replace Syrias Government, and that he would replace Ukraines Government? He lied and gave the exact opposite type of impressions to the public, but he won Wall Streets backing because they knew what he really represented, which was Americas billionaires.

So: whereas Republicans are more fascist against Palestinians, Democrats are more fascist against Russians. Each of the billionaires two Parties emphasizes different fascist foci, against different foreign nations and nationalities. And the billionaires media promote the fascist views in each Party such as that Israel is a friend of the U.S., and that Russia is our number one geopolitical foe. Regardless whether billionaires actually believe such things, its what they constantly promote.

The American Jewish Committee (which is intensely pro-zionist) did a recent poll of 1000 American Jews which found (see question 14 there) Americas Jews to be perhaps even more hostile against moving Americas embassy to Jerusalem, than Americas non-Jews are. On September 13th, the Jerusalem Post headlined “MOST AMERICAN JEWS DO NOT WANT TRUMP TO MOVE US EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM , and summarized the polls findings about this:

When asked about the embassy, a majority said they oppose moving it. Thirty-six percent responded that they would be in favor of this, but at a later date in conjunction with progress in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. Only 16% believe the embassy should be moved immediately [which the AJC always wanted] and 4% are not sure. Among those who do not want the legation moved, 51% are Democrats and 26% are Republicans.

So: while Democrats are gullible that Russia is a hostile power, Republicans are gullible that Israel isnt a hostile power.

Famously, Republican billionaires, such as the Adelsons (who bankrolled Cruz and then Trump) and the Wexners (who bankrolled Kasich) or at least the ones who care much about the Israel’v. Palestinians issue (and none of those who do care are at all pro-Palestinian) are intensely zionist, and are neoconservatives (supporters of empire) generally. Similarly, Republican billionaires had supported apartheid South Africa. Furthermore, the Republican Jew Dov Zakheim, whom the Republican U.S. President George W. Bush managed to organize and to run the official 9/11 investigation and report, and who rigged it for the President and for the Saud family so as to exclude any blame against the Sauds (whom all evidence showed to have funded and perhaps run the 9/11 attacks and who are allied with Israels Government against the United States), was shown on page 13 of the AJCs 2014 federal tax return to be still working an average of 5 hours per week for the AJC. 8 donors of over a million dollars for that year were indicated on the form, but none of them were named. On page 30 of that form was a description of AJC’s lobbying activities to influence U.S. legislators who are supposed to represent the American not the Israeli citizenry, and here is that description all-caps as they had printed it:

“DURING 2014, AJC ATTEMPTED TO INFLUENCE STATE, FEDERAL, AND NATIONAL POLICY THROUGH DIRECT CONTACT WITH LEGISLATORS, THEIR STAFF, AND GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AT THE STATE AND FEDERAL LEVEL. AJC STAFF AND LAY LEADERS HELD MEETINGS ON A REGULAR BASIS WITH THESE INDIVIDUALS. IN ADDITION TO CONTACTING FEDERAL AND STATE AGENCY OFFICIALS REGARDING EXISTING OR PENDING LEGISLATION, AJCS ACTIVITIES FOCUSED PRINCIPALLY ON FOREIGN AFFAIRS LEGISLATION (INCREASED SANCTIONS ON IRAN AND SUPPORT FOR U.S.-ISRAEL COOPERATION), IMMIGRATION REFORM (SUPPORT OF COMPREHENSIVE REFORM), AMERICAN ENERGY SECURITY, CIVIL RIGHTS, CIVIL LIBERTIES, AND RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

Other U.S. taxpayers must pay the taxes that charities such as that lobbying organization dont. (Or, otherwise, the resulting tax-shortfall if the general public dont pay it gets added to the federal debt and thus burdens the next generation of Americans to pay it, thus transferring that billionaires portion of the tax-burden from those philanthropists onto the general public and everyones children.) U.S. taxpayers thus subsidize, by our taxes, this Israeli propaganda that fools ourselves and other Americans to respect and support the apartheid racist Government of Israel. Only in this way is it acceptable to the American public that we donate $3.8 billion per year to Israels Government.

No section of the form listed donors to AJC or the amounts donated; but whomever did donate to it received tax-deductions for their donations, which thus add still further to the financial drain that must be filled by the people whom Americas legislators are supposed to be representing (while they instead represent Israel).

The AJCs 2008 Annual Report quoted the Republican billionaire Rupert Murdoch as saying, The American Jewish Committee has become one of the worlds most influential organizations. Its a tax-exempt international lobbying organization one of many such. Americans actually pay to be deceived.

Another such is the more-famous Israeli one, AIPAC, which on its 2009 U.S. federal tax return listed one unnamed donor of $48,542,187, and another unnamed donor of $13,503,473, and all the other donors were unidentified not only by name but also by the amount of their donation. At the Open Secrets site, the list of AIPACs Top Contributors, 2017-2018 are organizations all of which represent only wealthy conservatives and almost only Republicans. Unlike donations to the tax-exempt AJC, the donations to the tax-exempt AIPAC arent tax-exempt; so, AIPAC harms U.S. taxpayers only one way, not two (as AJC does). Many of the billionaires who demand that Americas embassy be transferred to Jerusalem are fundamentalist Christians, such as the Wilks family of Texas, which early in the 2016 election-year (when donations count the most) was the largest donor of all to U.S. politics, and which is intensely Christian definitely not Jews at all. Open Secrets headlined on 25 March 2016 Big money if not the GOP establishment has been with Ted Cruz from the start and reported that:

Keep the Promise III, tasked largely with digital organizing though it was recently spending money on robocalls in Michigan, similarly received 98 percent of its funds $15 million from four members of the Texan Wilks family and has $9.4 million left. Brothers Dan and Farris Wilks became billionaires when they sold their business providing trucks and other equipment to frackers; Farris Wilks is pastor of a fundamentalist church in rural central Texas.

The intensely Christian Cruz (his father is a fundamentalist pastor) is an intense supporter of moving the embassy to Jerusalem; Trump wants all of those fundamentalist donors to Cruzs campaign to donate to Trumps re-election campaign. But, of course, all Republican Presidential candidates constantly climb over each other to praise Israel the highest, and Trumps announcement that the embassy will be moved to Jerusalem is another of his many bids for those billionaires support, in preparation for re-election in 2020.

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has said, of Americas political system:

“Now it’s just an oligarchy with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for president or being elected president. And the same thing applies to governors, and U.S. Senators and congress members. So, now we’ve just seen a subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors, who want and expect, and sometimes get, favors for themselves after the election is over. … At the present time the incumbents, Democrats and Republicans, look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves. Somebody that is already in Congress has a great deal more to sell.

Many anti-Semites blame the Jews for Trumps moving Americas embassy to Jerusalem, but thats a factually false allegation; it is instead only billionaires who are responsible for it, and especially Republican billionaires, including many who arent even Jews at all.

Whereas the Democratic Partys billionaires dont generally care intensely about the oil-producing regions of the world, other than to support the Sauds in their centuries-old war against Shia and especially against Iran (which obsession they share with Republican billionaires), Republican ones do, both for financial and for religious reasons. Both political categories of Americas billionaires are united together in their hatreds both of Russians and of Shia. The global empire they seek is to be both American and Saudi; Israel is a hanger-on to both, against Shia. However, Israel and the Saud family control the U.S. Government; the U.S. Government dont control either of them. The real hostile powers against the American public are Israel and especially the Sauds. But Americas billionaires are strongly allied with both. Consequently, Americas taxpayers donate annually to the Israeli Government via taxes paid to the U.S. Government $3.8 billion annually; and the U.S. Government blames Iran instead of the Sauds for the 9/11 attacks.

As the methods and technologies of mass-deception continue to increase, so does fascism, since its built on lies.

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.

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?
