Do Like "my articles"?

Then check out the rest. I have written essays on all kinds of topics from Climate Change to 9/11, from Israel to America, from Religion to History and from Internet Surveillence to the rise of the new high tech police state.

The Internet is under attack by big business and big government who are trying to control the flow of information any way they can. Using the threat of Terrorism and Cyber attacks the western world (especially USA/UK/Australian governments) are expanding their power to control internet traffic and recently Google and Verizon signed a deal that will end net neutrality.

What this means is alternative news sites like Dark Politricks and many others will find it harder to bring you the news that the mainstream media wished you didn't know about. This is because they will be either blocked by Chinese style firewalls (as Australia has already introduced) or they will be pushed down the Google rankings by special algorithms that control a sites listing.

Web servers and bandwidth costs money and articles take time to write. Whilst I try to bring you the best of the alternative news every day I have also personally written hundreds of articles for this site and you won't find many one paragraph or half hearted articles with my name at the top of them.

Please donate

Whilst you may not want to donate money to an information clearing house website that collates articles about the war on terror in one place I would like to remind you that:

  • I am asking you to help me continue my OWN writing not the collation of other articles written by others.
  • I have already been kicked off many servers and blogging sites for my own writings due to various reasons.
  • I allow my own work to be re-printed across the web without complaint. Just search Google for Dark Politricks articles that are not on this site to see for yourself. My articles have appeared in many places including, and and many others besides.

So to help continue my own writing I would appreciate any dontations that you feel appropriate, especially if you like one of my articles or essays. Just think of all the extra articles and links as a collection of related news stories that mean you don't have to visit hundreds of different sites each day to get your news about the world of politricks and the war on terror. All money goes towards hosting my own server (not a shared server) and prevents me having to litter the site with flashing adverts as many others do. I realise people are having a tough time in the current economic climate.

Thanks for your continued support.

Could Obama’s Legacy Be Destroyed by His Ukraine Policy? What to Do About It –

Could Obama’s Legacy Be Destroyed by His Ukraine Policy? What to Do About It –

By Eric Zuesse.

Eric Zuesse

The Ukrainian Government that the Obama Administration installed after Obamas successful coup’d’etat in Ukraine is now crashing and burning in the process of the newly installed Governments ethnic-cleansing program to get rid of the people in Ukraine’s southeast, the area of Ukraine that had voted overwhelmingly for the President whom the Obama Administration (the State Department and the CIA) had overthrown in February. The residents there rejected this new Government; this new Government is trying to exterminate them; and the local rebel-fighters against that are winning, and are decimating thousands of troops who were sent in to kill them and their families, and are shooting down many of the bombers that have been sent in to bomb them.

The Ukrainian Government prior to the coup had been economically sustained by borrowing both from Russia to the east, and also from the EU and U.S. to the west (with a substantial portion of the U.S. portion of that debt consisting of IMF loans — the U.S. Government is the major donor to the IMF). These loans were, ever since the collapse of the Soviet Union, largely being pocketed by the well-connected former communist nomenklatura or insiders who had been given formerly state-owned industries during the Harvard-designed privatization program throughout the former U.S.S.R. These new oligarchs (such as the current Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, who received the Leninska Kuznya shipyard and some state-owned chocolate factories, as well as a few other companies in retailing and news-media) got the benefits of those loans and socked away much of their consequent accumulating wealth in offshore tax-havens, so that the mounting sovereign debt of Ukraine is already crushing the Ukrainian population by severe cutbacks in Government expenditures for social services, road maintenance, and other government services, while those oligarchs have palatial residences in Western Europe. The public, in other words, suffer the debts, while the “oligarchs” or aristocrats (the former communist insiders) are now multi-billionaires; and one of them, Ihor Kolomoysky, was assigned a crucial Governorship, from which post he has largely masterminded and overseen the ethnic-cleansing campaign, which is clearing away the local residents in the land-area of the gas-fields Furthermore, in order for Ukraine to pay its debts, it is selling off the assets that had formerly produced income for Ukraine (largely for Ukraine’s skimming oligarchs) such as selling off the gas pipelines that carry gas from Russia to Europe. The biggest portion of Ukraine’s income was the transit-fees from these pipelines, and now these fees will go to investors in Europe and America, instead of to Ukraine. But Ukraine needs this money desperately right now, because the EU won’t extend more credit, and the U.S. is already beginning to wake up to its disaster in Ukraine.

So: this costly war will leave behind a failed-state in northwestern Ukraine, and a separatist southeast, which will likely seek and receive membership in the Russian Federation. The perhaps more than a million refugees from Obama’s ethnic-cleansing program in the southeast will probably return to and rebuild their bombed-out land, and likely receive a kind of Russian Marshall Plan to assist in that effort.

Looking back, it won’t be any sort of feather in Obama’s cap, but instead a black mark that will be comparable to, and perhaps even bigger than, George W. Bush’s catastrophe in Iraq.

Already, Obama’s economic legacy is economic stagnation for all but America’s richest 1%, who gained in income 31.4% while the bottom 99% flatlined a mere 0.4% during the Obama Administration’s first three years. To call that flatlining for the bottom 99% an “economic recovery” is to lie, which is what Obama and professional economists routinely do. And, normally, in an economic recovery after a crash, the bottom 99% do far better than do the top 1%, not far worse. This was the direct result of Obamas continuing Bushs policies of a bailout for the banksters, and a failout for the borrowers and investors. Also, the peddle-to-the metal at the Fed was and is a huge upward redistribution of wealth. So, President Obama’s liberal rhetoric on his claimed concern about equality in America rings hollow, if not fraudulent.

A President like this will be rated at or near the bottom by historians. Perhaps he’s just a less honest version of George W. Bush, the latter having made no bones about his conservatism. At least Bush was honest about that. Obama has lied about the most basic things of all: what he believes, what he actually cares about, as shown by the decisions that he has made in office. His policies display him as being like George W. Bush but a better liar from the standpoint of liberals, who have been taken in by his lies.

The disaster of his Presidency is now likely to produce electoral losses for the Democratic Party in November, which result will then be a certain kind of poetic justice for a Party whose principles are so fraudulent that not even a single Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives has introduced a bill of impeachment to remove him from office. That failure is equivalent to the entire Democratic Party accepting the deep stain on the Democratic Partys progressive brand, a stain that means: Were all fakes. Obamas policies, his actual record, reflect our conservative values. Hes not a Republican-in-verbal-disguise. He really is one of us, even after his having been the first U.S. President to place outright nazis into control of a foreign government.

The only thing that can significantly reduce the mounting cynicism in this country is for a House Democrat to introduce a bill of impeachment against perhaps the worst President in American history. It would be to say: Hes not really a Democrat, at heart; hes just a very effective liar. If Democrats want to retain control of the Senate, theyll need to disown and remove this stain upon it. For the 2014 elections, and the 2016 Presidential election, this will signal the end of the corrupt Clinton-Obama Democratic Party, and the rebirth of the FDR Democratic Party, a Party that truly was progressive and anti-fascist.

It would end the Clinton-Obama one-Party, conservative-Party, corporate-Party, U.S. political system. But without that change, the U.S. has no realistic hope. If Obama continues to be accepted as a Democrat, then the final two years of his Presidency will be spent signing into law numerous far-right bills that have passed both houses of Congress — a Republican House and a Republican Senate. Hell have a field day signing so many fascist bills into law. It will be the most conservative Government in American history. The Democratic Party will be dead. And democracy in America will be just a nostalgic memory for Americans who are old enough to remember what it was like. What it was like was progress for and in America. What we will have ever afterwards is dictatorship for and in America. The choice is up to each and every current Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Even before the Ukrainian junta-Government’s collapsing, Americans are more favorable toward impeachment of Barack Obama than they ever were toward impeachment of Bill Clinton, or even of George W. Bush – and no House Democrat even introduced a bill to impeach even him. (Does the Democratic Party not stand for anything at all?) The demand for Obama’s impeachment will only grow, if there turn out to be two Republican-controlled Houses of Congress — and, then, the bill to impeach will inevitably be a Republican one, with Republican (not Democratic) reasons. The only opportunity for the Democratic Party to restore itself and America, will have been missed.

At present, Democrats are so despondent, Gallup headlined on August 27th, “Republicans’ ‘Thought’ to 2014 Election Exceeds Democrats’: GOP advantage more similar to those in 2002 and 2010 than in 2006,” and reported that, “Republicans (42%) are much more engaged than Democrats (27%) in the election at this point.” Whereas Republican voters feel that they have an ideology (conservatism) to vote for, Democratic voters feel that they have only an ideology to vote against (conservatism) — and little even remains to distinguish between congressional Republicans and the Democratic President Obama on it. If Democrats in Congress support a President who is the first one ever to install outright nazism in a foreign country, then why vote at all?

November 2014 is shaping up to be a bloodbath for the Democratic Party. (See this ”Over the past two cycles, the presidents job approval has explained 58 percent of the variance in competitive Senate races in any given state,” and also the 6-to-1 odds of Republicans taking over the Senate; so, there will probably be two Republican houses.) Theres only one way to avoid it. Is there even a single House Democrat who will stand up and do what must be done to avoid an electoral bloodbath for the entire Party? Well soon know.

Lawyer: Cops Never Told Walmart Shopper to Drop Toy Rifle Before Gunning Him Down

Lawyer: Cops Never Told Walmart Shopper to Drop Toy Rifle Before Gunning Him Down

Family attorney says surveillance footage indicated man posed no threat

Lawyer: Cops Never Told Walmart Shopper to Drop Toy Rifle Before Gunning Him Down walmart 1

Police immediately shot a Walmart shopper on sight after they encountered him leaning on one of the store’s unpurchased BB guns while on the phone, an attorney for the deceased man’s family says.

Michael Wright, a lawyer representing the family of 22-year-old John Crawford III, who was shot and killed by police inside the Beavercreek Walmart earlier this month after being spotted wielding one of the store’s Crosman MK-177 pellet guns, commented at a news conference yesterday on bits of surveillance footage shown to him and the family by the Ohio Attorney General.

Wright said that, based on what he’d been shown, it did not appear Crawford made any threatening gestures, as suggested by a 9-1-1 caller, but was instead leaning on the butt of the air rifle when police arrived.

The tape we saw saw several shoppers walk by John, look at merchandise in the same aisle with John, including Angela Williams and her children and they were completely indifferent as to John’s presence. No shopper showed any concern about John’s presence that we were shown on tape by the attorney general, Wright stated.

On August 5, Beavercreek police used lethal force when they responded to a call regarding a man walking around the store menacingly pointing a weapon at other shoppers.

The caller stated he witnessed Crawford walking around with a gun in the store, and that he was loading it right now, and pointing it at customers and children.

He was just waving it at children and people. Items. I couldnt hear anything that he was saying. Im thinking that he is either going to rob the place or hes there to shoot somebody else, the concerned shopper told police.

We have no idea what this 9-1-1 caller viewed, Wright stated. The video that we were shown shows John doing absolutely nothing menacing, not pointing the gun, doing none of the things that the 9-1-1 caller indicated, asserted Wright, adding that he had not yet been able to question the caller. You just saw [Crawford] standing talking on the phone, and the next frame he’s laying on the ground.

From what weve seen, John had no opportunity to put the gun down, Wright said. He was doing nothing more, nothing less than shopping

Lee Cee Johnson, the mother of Crawfords children, said she was speaking with him on the phone right before police shot him. She said she heard Crawford tell someone the gun was not real, then heard screaming.

We was just talking. He said he was at the video games playing videos and he went over there by the toy section where the toy guns were. And the next thing I know, he said Its not real, and the police start shooting and they said Get on the ground, but he was already on the ground because they had shot him, Johnson said. And I could hear him just crying and screaming. I feel like they shot him down like he was not even human.

Wright said he’s still waiting to view the footage in its entirety, as he’d only been shown select parts, but said what police have released so far is extremely one-sided in favor of police accounts.

Everything released is one-sided. There is nothing favorable to John Crawford. You cant show different pieces. Show it all. Dont trickle pieces to gain favor of the public, said Wright.

Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine says they haven’t released the footage because it is not the right thing to do, and because it might affect the opinions of jurors presiding over the case.

The Beavercreek police chief, Dennis Evers, has already weighed in defending the officers, stating, Preliminary indications are the officers acted appropriately under the circumstances.

The officers gave verbal commands to the subject to drop the weapon, Evers stated at a press conference the day after the shooting. The subject was shot after failing to comply with the officers commands. The quick response of officers was instrumental in containing this situation and minimizing the risk to customers.

An innocent bystander also died following the confrontation. The Greene County Coroner indicated Angela Williams, 37, of Fairborn, was apparently running from a dangerous situation inside the Walmart store when she collapsed. She was taken to Soin Medical Center where she died at 9:14 p.m. In a sad twist, the mother of two was due to be wed that weekend.

Ohios Bureau of Criminal Investigation predicted it could be months before the investigation wraps up, a sluggish pace Crawford’s father, John Crawford II, perceives as stall tactics.

The state has handed the case over to a special prosecutor, and a grand jury will convene on September 22 to ultimately decide what repercussive actions to take, if any.

One of the officers involved in the altercation, David Darkow, is back on duty, while officer Sean Williams remains on paid administrative leave, according to the Huffington Post.

NYC Council Members Want to Treat Gun Owners Like Sex Offenders

NYC Council Members Want to Treat Gun Owners Like Sex Offenders

Proposed “gun offender registry” modeled after current sex offender registries open to public

Kit Daniels
August 27, 2014

Several members of New York’s City Council want to create a public “gun offender” registry modeled after current sex offender registries, which would ultimately list names, addresses and photos of New Yorkers who violate gun control laws.

NYC Council Members Want to Treat Gun Owners Like Sex Offenders 082714burningconstitutionbehindpolitician

In a recent press release, council member Costa Constantinides, who is sponsoring the proposal, says the registry will be updated on a monthly basis and will include “the offenders name, block on which they live, a physical description, the crime the offender was convicted of, and sentence imposed.”

“This online gun offender registry bill will promote public safety and guarantee our communities are notified when a registered gun offender lives within their neighborhood,” he claimed.

Constantinides and his fellow council members also claimed the “gun offender registry” would help combat “gun violence,” a common claim used by anti-gun politicians who want to completely eradicate the Second Amendment.

And make no mistake, thousands of non-violent New York citizens who violate unconstitutional gun control laws will end up in the database.

“In reality, this legislation – just like every other law targeting ‘gun crime’ – has nothing to do with public safety and everything to do with politics,” Kentucky blogger Bluegrass Bruce wrote. “If Constantinides were truly interested in public safety, the proposed database would include all violent criminals – not just the ones who use guns.”

“By choosing to target only ‘gun criminals,’ he is implying that someone who has committed a minor gun offense is more dangerous than someone who has stabbed someone to death or beaten his wife.”

That’s because the true intent of the “gun offender registry” is to condition the public into treating gun owners like social outcasts no different from violent sexual predators.

And this proposal is similar to the policies Facebook, Inc. enacted earlier this year which treat gun-related content as pornography on its namesake social media site.

Facebook’s policies include restrictions on users under 18 from seeing firearm-related content and the forced indoctrination of gun control propaganda targeted at users interested in firearms.

This smear campaign against gun owners really began to take shape in 1995, when U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Eric Holder, now the Attorney General, said government officials and others with influence should “brainwash” the public into thinking about guns in a negative way.

“What we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it’s something that’s not cool, that’s it’s not acceptable, that it’s not hip to carry a gun anymore in the way which we changed our attitudes about cigarettes,” he said. “When I was growing up, people smoked all the time, both my parents did, but over time we changed the way people thought about smoking, so now we have people who cower outside of buildings and kind of smoke in private and don’t want to admit it.”

The proposed “gun offender” registry is the realization of this agenda Holder pushed nearly 20 years ago, and unfortunately, in the near future, there will be stronger attempts to shame gun owners by both the entertainment industry and the mainstream media.
