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. To see all the articles I have personally written for this site you can visit the Dark Politricks articles section for a full listing.

Your help is required!

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.

Paul Broun statement on Committee Passage of Audit the Fed

Paul Broun statement on Committee Passage of Audit the Fed

By Norm Singleton

Washington, DC U.S. Rep. Paul Broun, M.D. (GA-10) today released the following statement after H.R. 24, the Audit the Fed bill, was reported favorably out of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform markup with unanimous consent. The Committee markup represents the next step in bringing H.R. 24 before the House floor for a vote.

Said Congressman Paul Broun, I am pleased by the recent efforts made by House leadership to advance my Audit the Fed bill through the legislative process. Todays markup takes us one step closer towards a vote before the full House and bringing much-needed transparency to our nations monetary policy. To date, more than 225 members of the House have joined my efforts to require a full audit of the Federal Reserve and Federal Reserve banks. Not only is H.R. 24 one of the most important pieces of legislation pending in this Congress, but it is also highly likely to pass the House with a strong bipartisan vote. I urge House leadership to continue to advance this essential bill and bring it up for a vote as soon as possible so that we can work towards delivering the transparency and government accountability the American people deserve. I look forward to the Houses passage of this crucial bill.

Editor’s Note: Please help Campaign for Liberty get a vote on Audit the Fed before Congress adjourns for it’s August recess by signing the Audit the Fed Faxed Petition to the House Leaderhsip.

Spy for a spy: Germany to monitor US, UK agents

Spy for a spy: Germany to monitor US, UK agents

Reuters / Paul Hackett

Two unnamed sources confirmed to Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper that Merkel’s chief of staff, Peter Altmaier, gave a green light for the step after negotiations with interior and foreign ministers.

According to the paper, the ’360 degree view’ program gives Germany the ability to spy on American and British agents stationed in Germany, while shifting its focus away from previous targets which included Russian, Chinese, and Iranian agents.

The plan to monitor American and British agents was developed in response to the NSA spying revelations. However, the federal government hesitated to implement it, mainly for fear of conflict with the United States, the paper reported.

“Now we need a strong signal,” the paper quoted a source familiar with the move as saying.

The scope and depth of the new intelligence measures have not yet been revealed.

One of the issues currently being discussed is whether or not to eavesdrop on the communications of embassies and consulates. No further details were revealed by the government sources.

The move comes as the level of distrust between Germany and the US is at its highest triggered by US snooping revelations that Chancellor Angela Merkels private phone calls had been monitored by US agents.

In early July, Germanys secret service arrested a German citizen employed by the national Federal Intelligence Service (BND) on suspicion of spying for the US. The BND official allegedly received 25,000 euros for his surveillance services.

Just a week later, Bild am Sonntag, Germany’s largest-selling national Sunday paper, reported that US secret services had recruited more than a dozen officials in various German government ministries to work as spies, including the BND and the Ministry of Defense, with some of them working for the CIA for many years.

This revelation resulted in Germany expelling the CIA chief in BERLIN as a retaliation step and in addition to existing issues.

Germany also opened up a new investigation into a German defense official who was reportedly in contact with a US State Department officer.

Massive West Bank clashes reportedly leave 2 Palestinians dead

Massive West Bank clashes reportedly leave 2 Palestinians dead

Jerusalem Post
July 24, 2014

Violence broke out Thursday night near the Kalandia checkpoint, located in the West Bank between Jerusalem and Ramallah, as residents of the West Bank village clashed with police in protests against the IDF’s operation in the Gaza Strip.

Some 10,000 Palestinians protested near the checkpoint, throwing rocks, firebombs and fireworks at Israeli security forces, and setting tires ablaze. The IDF forces and Border Police were using crowd dispersal means on the masses.

According to the Palestinian reports, two demonstrators were killed by Israeli security forces and dozens wounded.

The IDF Spokesperson’s Office did not confirm the Palestinian casualties. The military was checking reports of live fire targeting Israeli forces at the checkpoint.

The protest erupted after allies of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah movement marched from the West Bank city of Ramallah to the edges of Jerusalem in protest against Israel’s 17-day-old campaign against Hamas militants in Gaza.

Full story here.

Human Rights Watch Findings on Gaza Massacre

Human Rights Watch Findings on Gaza Massacre

By Robert Barsocchini

At this point in Israel’s massacre in Gaza, almost 800 Palestinians have been slaughtered, overwhelmingly civilians, including 24% children. 34 Israelis have been killed, all but 2 of them soldiers.

Today, Israel bombed a marked UN school, for which it had the GPS coordinates, killing 15 and wounding at least 150 people. This is a repeat of Israeli terrorism against UN humanitarian facilities in Gaza in Israel’s 2009 Gaza massacre:

  • In 2009, Israel sprayed clearly marked UN humanitarian relief centers with lethal white phosphorous. They did this after the UN provided the Israeli army with the GPS coordinates of the center, and while the UN was on the phone with the Israeli army telling them not to bomb the center because civilians were sheltering there and there were no militants present. Human Rights Watch confirmed that there were no militants present. For details on this, see Rain of Fire: Israels Unlawful Use of White Phosphorous in Gaza, by Human Rights Watch.
  • Israel also sprayed several other civilian shelters, including hospitals and schools, with white phosphorous, and Human Rights Watch likewise confirmed that no militants were present.
  • White phosphorus burns at 1,500 degree Fahrenheit and sticks to the skin, burning to the bone. The chemical properties can also cause organ failure and death.

Human Rights Watch, which was founded as a private American NGO and has a major revolving door with the US government, has a well-documented pro-Israel bias, as illustrated here by leading expert on the conflict Dr. Norman Finkelstein.

However, even Human Rights Watch is forced, during these Wounded Knee-style massacres by Israel, to document some of Israel’s atrocities.

Here are key findings from one of the organization’s latest reports:

Human Rights Watch investigated:

  • A missile attack that killed four boys on a Gaza City pier and wounded three others
  • Multiple strikes over several days on a hospital for paralyzed and elderly patients
  • Attacks on an apparent civilian residence and media workers car, and four previously documented strikes

“In many, if not all, of these cases, Human Rights Watch found no evidence of a military target.”

“Israeli forces may. have knowingly or recklessly attacked people who were clearly civilians, such as young boys, and civilian structures, including a hospital.”

HRW on the Israeli strike that killed four fleeing children on the beach:

  • Evidence at the scene indicates that the attack was carried out with Spike missiles, which have sensors that allow the operator to see the target even after the missile is fired and divert them mid-course if the target is not clearly military.

HRW on “an Israeli airstrike in Rafah on July 11 [that] killed five members of the Ghannam family”:

  • Human Rights Watch visited the home three days after the attack and found no evidence that it was being used for any military purpose
  • Israel has not provided a reason for this strike, as far as Human Rights Watch has been able to determine.

Israeli Attack on Wafa Hospital:

  • Based on photographs of recovered munitions Human Rights Watch viewed, the remnants appear to be sabots from tank-fired projectiles.
  • Tank fire is line-of-sight, direct fire, and Israeli tanks have accurate targeting systems.
  • The repeated Israeli attacks using accurate missile and tank fire that hit the hospital indicate that Israeli forces targeted the hospital intentionally and not accidentally
  • [There was] no justification to hit the hospital

HRW, in this same report, on Israel’s 2008/09 Gaza massacre:

  • The last ground offensive in Gaza, from December 2008 to January 2009, resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Palestinian civilians, many as the result of unlawful air and artillery attacks, and the unlawful destruction of civilian property.
  • Israel prosecuted only four military personnel for offenses during that conflict, and the heaviest sentence handed down was a seven-and-a-half-month prison term for credit card theft, heightening concerns of continuing impunity in the current fighting.

HRW on what to do:

  • If the international community wants to prevent civilian suffering, it should urgently put the parties on notice that war crimes during this Gaza escalation will not get a free pass.
  • The US and other countries should stop pressuring Palestine not to go to the ICC pressure that is both misguided and, as evidence of serious violations mounts, hostile to the need for justice.

This HRW report came out on July 22nd.

On July 23rd, the USA was the only country in the world to veto a UN proposal to carry out an investigation of Israel’s ongoing war crimes in Gaza.

As Jason Ditz points out, the UN investigation of Israel’s 08/09 massacre in Gaza found that “far from self-defense, the Israeli war was meant to ‘humiliate and terrorize a civilian population.‘”

The several page HRW report also includes two paragraphs on the crime, by Palestinian forces, of using unguided projectiles, as Palestinians have no guided projectiles. This is a fair balance of reporting on the two sides, because:

Israel is the aggressor.

Israel is illegally occupying and colonizing Palestine.

The overwhelming amount of violence and crimes are being committed by Israel.

The UN vote every year in favor of the legally required end to Israeli occupation and colonization of Palestine usually goes about 165 to 2, the world against the US and Israel.

Thus, we must keep in mind that shows such as this one on RT that offer one or two voices defending Palestine and counter it with one or two voices defending Israels presence in the OPT are imbalanced, and present a false depiction of reality. To correctly portray the actual balance on the issue, one would have to have 165 defenders of the world consensus for every two defenders (such as this crackpot) of the Israeli occupation and colonization of Palestine.

This is similar to the issue of reporting on climate change. Since 1991, there have been about 13,950 peer-reviewed articles published that affirmed human-caused climate change, and only about 24 that tried to deny it.

Thus, the BBC was recently criticized by British MPs for presenting a fifty-fifty balance on the issue, which is, as in the case of the Israel/Palestine conflict, an incorrect portrayal of reality, both in terms of the global consensus on resolving the Israel/Palestine issue and the amount of violence perpetrated, which is disproportionately and overwhelmingly carried out against Palestine by Israel.

Please sign this petition to help Amnesty International bring about a UN-imposed, comprehensive arms embargo on Israel and Palestine. Dr. Norman Finkelstein also supports the comprehensive embargo against both sides.
