Do aliens exist in Area 51?

Do aliens exist in Area 51?

By Dark Politricks

Question: Do Aliens exist?

I don't know. I doubt many people know for sure.

If anyone does now it is those with the highest security clearance in the land.

People who have clearance a lot higher than the Presidents and Prime Ministers of most countries put together. Trust me there are people with higher security clearances than the elected figurehead of your country.

Our permanent government, the heads of the civil service, the officials that seem to work for the government whatever party colour is in the White House that four year period.

The heads of the military and security agencies and their backers. People who remain in their position of power for decades - these are the people who would know. They are also unlikely to tell us if they did know.

Logically do I think we are the only planet in this huge universe with life.

No. The possibility seems too small.

Have we been visited by aliens?

If they exist and are more advanced than us then probably. They are probably the "Gods" from old tales and religious stories. If they only came recently they are the UFO's people claim to see in the sky at night.

Those people who say that these alien visitors don't make their presence known due to some Star Trek like law of the universe that forbids the interfering with lower species maybe on the right tract.

We are like ant colonies studied by David Attenborough and other naturalists who examine from afar, watch our lives and don't interfere even when we fight each other to the death.

Those people who believe aliens are sitting in Area 51 maybe right and they maybe wrong but until someone admits what is going on there we won't know.

There have been many people from high authority who have gone on record to say UFO's exist.

People such as the group of US nuclear missile commanders who gave a press conference the other year to say nuclear tests had been interfered with by UFO's firing laser beams to stop the missiles from working. I have a whole book at home full of witness statements from "believable" people who have gone on record to say they have seen UFO's in the sky the size of football pitches and even miles wide in the sky across the English channel. These are not your average drunken farmer from Arizona who wakes up with a sore asshole after a gay encounter on the way home and makes up an alien probe story to cover himself. No these are all RAF and USAF pilots, Army commanders and pilots from top class airliners who were all debriefed after their UFO encounter. All debriefed by people who took their claims seriously. We can say that Area 51 is just a highly restricted training facility where top secret aircraft are designed and developed. Aircraft like the Blackbird, U2 spy plane and the stealth bomber. However from the people who have put forward this explanation I have seen wondrous examples of anti-gravity devices, neutral balance planes lighter than air and other wondrous aircraft that anyone would think were alien in origin.

You can see them too in the documentary video at the bottom of this article.

The question is though, if these are all just top secret aircraft being tested. Where are they all?

Why are they not being used in our current wars?

Why has it taken over 50 years for certain airplanes to be developed but never deployed.

The Nazi's were supposedly investigating anti gravity devices and that was back in the 40's.

If these top secret fighter planes are being used they are not being used to help our solidiers in their current battles and if they are we are not being told about it.

Why are we still sending stealth fighters into war zones to be shot down by Chinese hackers who have given the details to their Serbian friends.

Why are our drones still so basic that even the Iranians can hack them and steal them on demand?

If Area 51 is full to the brim of top secret anti gravity devices that can fly at multiple times the speed of sound in seconds. Aircraft that can go from a stationary state to hundreds of mph in split seconds. Aircraft that make magnificent movements in the sky that would seem impossible then where are they all?

Why are we spending tax money developing them and not using them? Isn't that a waste?

I don't know if alien UFO technology is being deconstructed and reverse engineered at secret bases. Or that all our advancements in technology over the last half century have come from downed UFO's.

I do know that the USA tried for the best part of a decade to get a novice hacker called Gary McKinnon extradited and imprisoned for life for claiming to find evidence of UFO's at these bases.

Here was someone who used a basic port scanner and accessed top secret computers with open admin access (basically doing the USA a favour by showing how open their systems were) and claims to have found before and after photos which were touched up, having all signs of aliens and UFO's removed from them, before they were given out to Universities and other places.

Why did the Americans try so hard to get this person into their custody? If he was just a crazy loon shouting into the wilderness why give him the credibility of trying so hard to get him into an orange jumpsuit.

Why wait years from the time of the "crime" until the UK changed their extradition laws with the US before making an extradition request.

Why were they so disgusted when our Home Secretary stood up to them for once and said she would not allow his extradition. Were they just pissed off that the UK stood up to them for once or was it the underlying reason they stood up to them the real cause of their outrage.

Why are ex generals and people with nothing to gain but the label of "loony" being placed on their shoulders going on the record to claim UFO's took out nuclear missile silo's?

Why have so many UFO sightings occurred since the World Wars and the advancement of nuclear weaponry?

Are we just crazy for even believing their could be higher life forms in this massive universe OR are we crazy for NOT entertaining the idea that we are not alone in this empty space.

Here is Jesse Ventura looking into Area 51. A place you can be murdered without a warrant just for crossing an invisible line in the desert sand.

And here is Gary McKinnon explaining what he was searching for during his intrusion into Area 51 and what he claims to have found.

If you haven't read my earlier piece UFO Chronicles: What the President doesn’t know then have a read as it contains lots more information about credible witnesses plus a documentary about why the UFO's story has been such a good distraction for the "people".

Howard Stern- Alex Jones Interview 02/26/13

Howard Stern- Alex Jones Interview 02/26/13

By Dark Politricks

Alex Jones calls in to the Howard Stern show to talk to him about all of the following:

  • The real story between juice boxes making your kids gay and shrimp committing suicide.
  • Why gun control might be ideal in a perfect world but that we don't live in one.
  • Why the war on terror is a ruse for the American government to bring in measures such as the TSA groping, drones over the USA and the NDAA.
  • When bin-Laden really died and why they killed the Seal Team who attacked the compound in Abbottabad.
  • The Georgia Guidestones and what they mean.
  • Population reduction and how they are planning on doing it with vaccines and soft kill methods.
  • How in the future the elites won't need 7 billion people and how MIT are already planning the robots to take over the means of production for the "wealth creators".
  • Vacccinations and why he hasn't let his kids have one.
  • Why is it that McDonalds hamburgers can sit on a shelf for a year and still be eaten.
  • His relationship with Charlie Sheen and why Glenn Beck threatened to ruin his career.
  • The interview with Piers Morgan and why his "spidey sense" told him to get out of New York after seeing shit stained toilets in the CNN building.

He also talks about his past and his family including:

  • How he lost his virginity at the age of 12.
  • How he is happily married to a Jewish woman and doesn't put his success down to being an "Israeli Mossad Disinfo Agent".
  • How he is interested in spirituality but see's all organised religion as BS.
  • Why he home schools his children and why he thinks home schooling is growing in the USA.
  • How he played sport as well as did drugs at school - and he inhaled!
  • Why he loves history and went into talk radio as he hated hearing the USA being put down in Community College classes.
  • Who he respects in the industry and who his top hated people are.

This is a good interview that doesn't put Alex Jones in a bad light.

It also might hopefully might wake a few people up to what is going on in the world.

Remember to fact check everything he says on the show for yourself as it is very easy to take something out of context.

Also you won't find any ranting and raving in this interview and personally I think Alex comes off well - especially after the criticism I gave him for losing his cool on the Piers Morgan show.

In fact after all the years of listening to him it is one of the first I have heard him have a laugh and joke and show a sense of humour. It must be the fact he was speaking to Howard Stern and not Piers Morgan that did it!

Are we creating a false fear of war with North Korea?

Are we creating a false fear of war with North Korea?

By Dark Politricks

As this video shows, this is how the "establishment media" sells wars to the populace by fear mongering and leaving out parts of statements by the "enemy" that would provide context to otherwise threatening language.

Tonight the BBC showed a controversial Panorama programme in which the BBC tricked the London School of Economics into allowing their film crew to hop along with a trip of students to the country.

From the BBC website.
Three journalists accompanied 10 London School of Economics students and spent eight days in the country.

The university and its students' union have demanded the corporation withdraw the programme.

But BBC head of news programmes Ceri Thomas said the North Korean government was the only party the corporation had deceived.

If you can access BBC iPlayer or have the Firefox plugin Modify Headers and can find a UK IP address then you can view the programme (probably tomorrow) here >> Panorama North Korea Undercover

As we know from previous Panorama documentaries, especially the one on the Mavi Marmara after the IDF executed 9 Free Gaza activists, the BBC can be very biased when it comes to picking sides.

To be fair, the North Korean state is a Stalinist, Nationalist dictatorship in which rule passes down a family line and the new young ruler is most likely showing strength and acting out to secure his position internally.

However despite the rhetoric and the fact that his armed forces are a million strong they are armed with antiquated weaponry, old Russian tanks and rifles and their nuclear bombs are most likely stolen or bought from the black market.

It is true that the North Korean regime is a horrible communist nightmare in which hundreds of thousands of people are locked up in gulags and camps. The people have suffered multiple famines in which grass became the main available food for the "workers" whilst the ruling family and generals most likely ate like kings.

As George Orwell said in Animal Farm, some animals are more equal than others and I suspect that is undoubtedly the case in North Korea right now.

However despite all this the two Korea's are still technically at war. No peace treaty has ever been signed between the North and South since the war ended in the 50's and therefore the two countries are still on a war footing.

The USA is committed to backing up the South and China the North, therefore any miscalculation by the Koreans or American's could easily lead to an outbreak of war. It would be foolish if we allowed this to happen because of propaganda and lies.

We have to realise that North Korea is not stupid.

They saw what happened to Iraq and Libya when they gave up their WMD's. To them, a nuclear weapon is the ultimate guarantee of safety from attack. This is probably the same thinking that the Iranians have.

They know about the USA bringing stealth bombers over their country and see war games being held across their border. Without a direct hot-line to stop war breaking out from mis-perception of an imminent threat from either side it would only take an incident like last years bombing of a disputed island or the sinking of a ship for a war to start for real.

The North Korean's WANT PEACE.

They have explicitly said this time after time and if anything their ratcheting up of war talk is aimed at getting peace talks started again.

However it is not North Korea preventing a peace treaty between all sides from occurring but the pre-conditions set by the Americans that the North give up all their nuclear ambitions that is stopping a peace treaty from being signed.

Who is the USA, the only country to have used a nuclear bomb in anger, to decide who is and who isn't allowed nuclear weapons?

When we have countries like Israel who are stocked to the teeth with nuclear weaponry being allowed to continue their nuclear ambitions whilst talking about attacking Iran for even thinking about having their own. It is no wonder that North Korea is not willing to give up the ultimate deterrent.

When we are not even willing to budge on our own nuclear capability and allow our friends to own nuclear weapons whilst declaring our enemies ambitions off limits it is no wonder that a large part of the world see's this hypocrisy and then calculates that only by having nuclear bombs will it prevent an attack by the axis of war i.e US/UK/France.

North Korea is not a pleasant place to live and their rulers are despots. However the way to overcome this is by signing a peace treaty, allowing open borders and people from both sides of Korea to cross the border and see that they are not so different after all.

Once North Korea can stop diverting all it's money from it's armed forces to actually modernising it's country then things might change.

However it seems we are once again stuck in the 80's. Trying to defeat a communist regime by bankrupting and starving them to submission by forcing them to spend money they don't have on defensive measures because they are rightly paranoid of attack.

It may have worked with the USSR but North Korea has held on much longer and seems willing to let their citizens resort to eating grass or cannibalism so that it's few resources can be spent maintaining ancient weaponry that would be wiped out immediately if any war started.

Lets just hope people our side of the divide are not fooled into war once again like we were with Iraq and Libya.

The neo-cons are probably flipping coins at the moment deciding whether to attack Iran or North Korea and propaganda like the sort we are constantly being fed at the moment about North Korea threatening to nuke us without giving us the full context is not helping at all.

Remember - find the facts out for yourself and don't rely on the mainstream media for your nightly statements of fear.

Facebook Group want to make Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead number one in tribute to Maggie Thatchers death

Facebook Group want to make Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead number one in tribute to Maggie Thatchers death

By Dark Politricks

Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead

At the news of the death of Margaret Thatcher my country was instantly split between those who had remembered life under her during the 80's and those who probably went "who?". However even the second group of people took the chance to party and riot like good little Englanders all around the country.

For those of us old enough to remember her and her governments time in office it was a choice between respectful mourning of a great Prime Minister, whether or not you agreed with her policies, or a chance to celebrate the death of someone who had brought great misery to large parts of the country.

For those people living outside the South East of England during the 80's it was a time in which skilled workers lost their jobs and the only replacements were service based such as IT, Sales, Marketing and other forms of employment that someone without a degree could move to unless they wanted to serve burgers in McDonalads or say "Hello" and "Goodbye" at the local B&Q.

The rest of Europe used to call the UK the "sick man of Europe" during the end of the 70's and it was a time of 3 day working weeks, power cuts, IMF bailouts and rubbish piled sky high and left in the street for rats to fester in due to regular militant union action.

Maggie Thatcher came into power in 1979 determined to smash the power of the unions and she did so using new laws and the strikes led by Arthur Scargill and the National Union of Mineworkers during their famous strike of 1984 to 1985.

Scargill whose wife on news of Thatchers death called her "evil", claimed that the government had a long-term strategy to destroy the mining industry by closing unprofitable pits, and that it listed pits it wanted to close each year. Although the Government denied this at the time it didn't stop the massive strike action that led to famous battles such as those at Hatfield and Hunterston between miners and soldiers dressed up as policemen where blood was shed on both sides.

Although Arthur Scargil was a communist sympathiser and had links to the Soviet Union at the time; quoted as saying that "the ideas of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin explained the real world". He was demonised by the Tory press and ultimately failed in his attempt to stop Thatcher shutting down the mines.

This led to the wastelands of the North that weren't put right until very recently and whole towns were put on the dole. The cost to the taxpayer that came from the huge unemployment in these towns with the social ills related to it far outweighed any subsidy that would have been needed to keep the mines open and proud men in work, paying tax and supporting their families through hard work.

Although the Miners strikes were held during a time in which there was a real choice in UK politics, between those people who wanted real left or right wing policies, and had their parties to vote for that upheld those views.

With Labour on the left and the Conservatives on the right. The era of Maggie Thatcher led to the rise of the neo-Thatcherite, Tony Blair, who once elected as leader of the Labour Party took it to the centre ground and abolished a major part of it's core belief i.e clause 4.
Clause 4 of Labour's constitution committed the party to nationalisation (or re-nationalisation) of the key industries and utilities.

As Thatcher was privatising everything she could, even at rock bottom prices. There was still hope for those people who believed state built industries such as the railway should be owned and run by the state for the benefit of the people NOT private shareholders.

We can all see what a mess the railways have become with ever increasing price rises due to the lack of any "real" competition. Can someone tell me how can two competing train companies run trains on the same line at the same time? If not then how would privatising the industry have any hope of bringing fares down due to competition between competing companies?

"Well, Margaret Thatcher is perhaps the politician I have the greatest admiration for. I am reading her memoirs at the moment."
Not exactly the thing someone who is supposed to be your opponent across the political sphere would say.

Especially about the one person who probably did the most to change UK politics in the last 30 years and remove all "socialist" tendencies from your own party - a party that was supposed to be socialist and pro-trade union in nature when it was founded!

Then again there are rumours from ex MI5 agents, including the well known whistle-blower David Shaylerthat Tony Blair himself was an MI5 informant who was recruited at University to spy on the very left wing radicals he pretended to be part of.

If true was it any surprise that his rise to the top of the Labour party was so quick and that once he became leader he quickly removed any semblance of socialism from it?

These were the same industries that Thatcher was busy privatising and whilst her policies put many people out of work it also modernised many UK industries and gave the UK an advantage over it's European allies, many of which still have nationalised industries to this day. However although many people remember her as being euro-sceptic it was her government that signed the Maastricht Treaty and pushed the UK further into the hold of the European Union that controls much of our law and life to this day.

Tony Blair's reformation of Labour into "New Labour" led the party to multiple electoral victories but it also ended any real choice in UK politics as all major parties are now based in the centre ground fighting over small changes to very similar policies.

The only real choice comes from voting for smaller parties like UKIPthe Green Party, Arthur Scargill's Socialist Labour Party or any other smaller parties which take polarising views on how the economy should work and society should be run.

Views from total liberalisation, freedom, total state control and even communism. Political Parties like this are too small to gain national traction and they create a massive disenfranchisement of the UK voting populace, many of whom show their frustration at the big 3 by refusing to vote at all.

However, whether you loved her or hated her Maggie Thatcher was one of the most dominant personalities in UK politics over the last few decades and her death has been marked by sadness as well as parties.

For example, on news that Thatcher had died multiple parties broke out all across the UK from Scotland to Brighton people took a chance to celebrate and sing the song "Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead!"

One officer was taken to hospital and five others were injured in clashes in Bristol after a street party turned violent. A man was arrested after revellers refused to leave the street party, and threw cans and bottles at police, according to Avon and Somerset police. A police vehicle was damaged and an officer remains in hospital. His injuries are not thought to be serious.
Police said the group "refused requests to peacefully disperse", leading to the use of shields and batons by officers. A spokeswoman said police received a number of calls from residents about the party.
She said party-goers were "throwing stuff around and starting fires" before police arrived.

In Brixton, south London, people gathered from around 5.30pm in Windrush Square and by nightfall had attracted about 200 protesters after a party was announced on Facebook. The Ritzy cinema was festooned in banners, with the now showing sign rearranged to spell out "Margaret Thatcher dead". One banner read: "Rejoice, Thatcher is dead." Others chanted: "Maggie, Maggie, Maggie, dead, dead, dead."

In Leeds a group gathered to hand out "Thatcher's dead cake", singing and cheering at one of several street parties. In this footage from a man is seen chanting 'If you all hate Thatcher clap your hands' into a megaphone.
While in Liverpool, where many reviled Thatcher for her role in the closure of the city's docks and her perceived role and views on the Hillsborough disaster, there was a gathering lit by red flares on the steps of Lime street station. Police said they had not been called to any disturbances in the city related to the former prime minister's death.
Around 300 people gathered in Glasgow's George Square which experienced highly charged poll tax protests in 1989, after the introduction of one of Thatcher's most divisive measures. Revellers wore party hats, and popped a bottle of champagne while streamers were thrown into the sky.
Groups such as the Communist party, the Socialist party, the Anti-Bedroom Tax Federation and the International Socialist Group were joined by members of the public. Martin Chomsky, the lead singer of Chomsky Allstars, performed his song So Long Margaret Thatcher in George Square.
"There are mixed emotions. I was never brought up to celebrate anyone's death but the pain she brought to Latin America, Europe and around the world should be remembered," he said.
"I would rather that Thatcherism was dead because she is mostly to blame for what is going on today. She is responsible, but not solely, for the massive gap between the rich and the poor."

In Derry and Belfast, there were republican celebrations. In one incident in Derry a petrol bomb was thrown at a passing police patrol near Free Derry Corner during a street party. In the Falls Road area of west Belfast, car horns were sounded and champagne bottles cracked open as hundreds gathered to wave flags and chant.
In Trafalgar Square, central London, champagne bottles were passed around as people celebrated, while a Facebook group is calling for another celebration in Trafalgar Square on Saturday from 6pm.
separate campaign has been launched to make Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead reach No1 in the music charts.

The most hated ex UK Prime Minister after Tony Blair, i.e Maggie Thatcher died today

The most hated ex UK Prime Minister after Tony Blair, i.e Maggie Thatcher died today

By Dark Politricks

It has just been reported by the BBC that the hated ex Tory Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has died at the age of 87.

A hero to the right and a hated enemy of the left the ex Tory Prime Minister was a divisive figure in UK politics.

Baroness Thatcher was the only female PM in UK history and she was responsible for the devastating privatisation policies of the 80's.

Although her policies opened up many nationalised markets such as energy and telecommunications to private investment it also destroyed many working class communities all over the country, especially whole towns of people who relied on work at local mines or ship yards which were shut down.

She was responsible for the massive destruction of union power and her war with Arthur Scargill led to the closure of many mines, high unemployment figures and battles between soldiers dressed up as policemen and striking miners which were the highlight of news programmes although the early 80's.

For the striking miners there were no other jobs for them to go to and after the mines were shut down and whole communities in the North of England, and Wales were put on the dole.

The cost analysis benefit of subsiding the mines versus the cost of putting whole towns on unemployment benefit, the crime from drugs and drink and other social ills that led from the hopelessness she created were undoubtedly pro-subsidy.

However the Tory right were only thinking short term and the destruction of the unions and the move to privatisation was more important than the high unemployment and social ills it cost the country.

Please don't forget as the current Tory government is busy demonising people in receipt of benefits and busy moving people off disability allowance and back onto the much lower benefit "jobseekers allowance". That it was in-fact the Tory government of Thatcher that was responsible for "massaging" the unemployment figures in the first place, by switching people from "the dole" to "the sick", so that they could claim that unemployment was failing when in reality it wasn't.

3 million unemployed was a regular figure heard on the news during Thatchers time as Prime Minister.

She was responsible for privatising the national railways which has been a massive failure as well as numerous other neo-liberal economic policies which the right claimed "modernised" the UK in comparison to the rest of Europe. In reality it has led to the current situation we have now in which all 3 major political parties are centre based leaving no real choice for the electorate.

There is no major party that can call itself left or right any-more. We just have a mob of centrist politicians all debating over how much austerity we should be suffering to pay for the banks mistakes.

It was the long years out of power during Thatchers reign that made Tony Blair decide to "modernise" the Trade Unionist Labour party all but destroying it's links with the unions and making it another pro-war, neo-con leaning, bankster loving party of the centre right.

Some even say Tony Blair's Labour government was to the right of Thatcher with his over bearing policies of police surveillance, anti-terrorism acts that removed peoples liberties and his alliance with the Americans in their multiple wars.

Today will be a day of sadness for many on the right of politics and I wouldn't be surprised to see even supposed "left" wing leaders pay their respects to the ex Tory leader who helped destroy all meaning in voting Labour at the polling booths.

For others it will be seen as a day of celebration.

Baroness Thatcher was the hated figure that caused massive unemployment, high interest rates, Black Wednesday and our removal from the European Exchange Rate Mechanism. She was also responsible for the Poll Tax riots, the Falklands war and the creation of vast wastelands in the north of England.

To people affected by her economic policies in a negative way I cannot see them visiting her funeral to see her off unless it's to make sure she has really died!

From the BBC News report
Ex-Prime Minister Baroness Thatcher dies
Former Prime Minister Baroness Thatcher has died at 87 following a stroke, her spokesman has said.
Lord Bell said: "It is with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that their mother Baroness Thatcher died peacefully following a stroke this morning."
Baroness Thatcher was Conservative prime minister from 1979 to 1990.
She was the first woman to hold the post. Her family is expected to make a further statement later.
Baroness Thatcher, born Margaret Roberts, became the Conservative MP for Finchley, north London in 1959, retiring from the Commons in 1992.
Having been education secretary, she successfully challenged former prime minister Edward Heath for her party's leadership in 1975.
She won general elections in 1979, 1983 and 1987.
Baroness Thatcher's government privatised several state-owned industries. She was also in power when the UK went to war with Argentina over the Falkland Islands in 1982.
In a statement on the Downing Street Twitter feed, Mr Cameron said: "It was with great sadness that l learned of Lady Thatcher's death. We've lost a great leader, a great prime minister and a great Briton."
A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: "The Queen was sad to hear the news of the death of Baroness Thatcher. Her Majesty will be sending a private message of sympathy to the family."
London Mayor Boris Johnson tweeted: "Very sad to hear of death of Baroness Thatcher. Her memory will live long after the world has forgotten the grey suits of today's politics."
UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage called Lady Thatcher a "great inspiration", adding: "Whether you loved her or hated her nobody could deny that she was a great patriot, who believed passionately in this country and her people. A towering figure in recent British and political history has passed from the stage. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family."
Senior Conservative MP David Davis said: "Margaret Thatcher was the greatest of modern British prime ministers, and was central to the huge transformation of the whole world that took place after the fall of the Soviet Union.
"Millions of people in Britain and around the world owe her a debt of gratitude for their freedom and their quality of life, which was made possible by her courageous commitment to the principles of individual freedom and responsibility."
Lady Thatcher had suffered poor health for several years.
