Is George Orwell the 20th century Nostradamus

Is George Orwell the 20th century Nostradamus

Do young kids even care about Privacy anymore?
By Dark Politricks

The Snoopers Charter is now the most draconian Internet law in the world.

I bet at least half if not 70% of people today in the UK, don’t even realise what this draconian law is and that is now on the books. If you don’t you better start reading my friend before you are forced into intricate flag waving ceremonies and hand salutes for Theresa May.

Do you care or are you too busy playing candy crush and taking selfies of you on the toilet to worry about antiquated ideas like privacy.

Privacy was once something to be protected. Now it’s a commodity to be sold or to be used to track you down by private investigators, ex partners, the police, MI6/6 a

In the UK we are now living in George Orwell’s prophetic 1984.

This was the futuristic tale written by the author in 1949 by George Orwell  after the 2nd world war.

In the book, he imagined a world constantly at war, enemies to the North, South, East and West, millions of people working for the state apparatus, and a million people dying daily fighting on the front line.

The “Ministry of Truth” where old news stories were carefully amended to show an altered vision of history as alliances change and battles won. Oh and of course the thousands of spies and traitors who had to be weeded out by Big Brother and his double agents.

The book does remind me strongly of the present day.

Alliances swap and change so often, people you were told were eating babies yesterday and fighting tooth and nail against you are now your allies, standing shoulder to shoulder fighting alongside you on the front line against what are probably tomorrow’s allies.

Propaganda is news to be believed as it comes straight from the word of the Great Leader or the State in our case.

Of course any dissidents who try and provide actual facts or a non biased point of view on any conflict are labelled traitors, conspiracy theorists and jailed for long sentences if not silently killed.

A more subtle way in this age of information technology where a GPS chip in your arm, or more precisely your phone, tracks all your movements for the state our #altnews internet sites are taken down or dropped in the Google rankings after sitting at the top for years. Bureaucrats decide what is “fake news” and “real news” and then warn potential readers they may be entering a free thinking zone.

One day an ally in a war is to be against all forms of torture, killing of innocents and despises religious fundamentalism, child killers and suicide bombs. Just like the Syrian Free Army, who were a non jihadist, anti Assad force. The next thing you know they sold all the arms and equipment we had given them to ISIS , ransomed off American journalists to ISIS to be beheaded for cash and prayed to allah as they machine gunned down captors in the street or cut open their victims chests before eating their hearts and lungs.

Alliances change like snowflakes in the wind it seems and the globalist don’t give a shit who they are working with as long as it meets their objective.

We have even got to the stage where al-Qaeda our “mortal enemy” (2 men in a cave), are sometimes on our side. Using pseudo names like al-Nusra Front they are labelled as anti Assad fighters and not jihadists. I’d like to see the command and control structure in that office.

Of course who dies, which states crumble and how many millions of migrants enter Europe to carry out ISIS attacks on Paris night clubs doesn’t matter to the powers that be.

They get their kicks off on a Friday night lying naked in some open coffin wanking off to the names of their ex lovers (I wonder if that includes little boys and girls….) and have all their mates watch and cheer. Then they finish the night off with a nice “pizza” as they discuss the next destabilisation plan on the table.

Then as politics and the war changes, the idea to be at perpetual war to keep the citizens at home and frightened (sound familiar), the alliances change so that in the hall of records this previous alliance is airbrushed out of history and the strength of unity and purpose that our new alliance brings is fully documented.

George Orwell had an uncanny knack of seeing into the future or his tale was picked on as some sort of template to base our war economy on.

We already have the Telescreens in our rooms and the Snoopers Charter (and US Terms and Conditions) make it exactly that.

If you have a built in Web Cam for Skype or games just beware it’s two way. If you can use it, so can the police and MI5/6 use it to watch you, and with the new Snooper Charter Law they don’t even need a warrant. So when you send that next sex text to you baby mama just be on notice the local drug squad could all be having a giggle.

“They” are watching and listening to you through your digital accessories on TV’s, Phones, PC’s, laptops, tablets anything that can be hacked (most things) and profiling you just as in the book 1984.

You can get all techie about it as I write here about some of the ways to mitigate such surveillance or a quick list on journalists who were followed and harassed, some killed, but a quick list would be.

Encrypt your phone in the settings with a long upper and lower case passwords only you know.

Use patterns to access all your favourite apps. 4 digit pins are easily breakable in 5 mins but a pattern you have got wrong a hundred times before is a lot harder.

Turn your location off. Why do you need to see where you drove around for the last week or so or what time you stopped at the local McDonalds. Not very interesting but it just might be for people watching you.

Use Anti Virus tools on your phone. MalwareBytes is free and good for both PC and phone. Clean Master is also good and CM Security allows you to add patterns/pin codes/finger prints to open apps and files if you phone doesn’t have it built in.

Don’t use the default Text or Phone app you get on your phone. All these calls and messages will be saved at Vodafone HQ for a year or more in case the cops come calling. Just deleting them off your phone does nothing as they are still on your phone providers servers.

Install Telegram , Viber or if you must Wickr . A BT Sim only plan will get you on the internet in most place so you can video call Japan – encrypted – all without using up your minutes. Same goes for texts. Telegram / Wickr allow you to delete your texts after X days/weeks/months with a self destruct option that if you don’t use your app within X days or so it will delete the whole account.

So if your phone goes “missing” you can be safe knowing as they are dictionary cracking your passwordsock them out after 3 failed goes and attempting patterns that will l your texts will get deleted.

Also BT uses DCHP which means everytime I go on the web I get a new IP address this pisses me off no end as I need to add it into my firewall to SFTP or stop myself being blocked out my own site.

However it also means it makes it a lot harder over historical period to see what you were up to when they cannot trace the IP address to you especially when you went through a number of proxies.

That is of course unless you have already been hacked and all your history lies at GCHQ – the great hall of records, history, fake history and “we are all doing this for your own protection”.

So just use masking tape over your phones camera or webcam if you are not planning on using it and the same goes for your microphone.

Sometimes the best ways are the oldest. And if your really paranoid, which you should be as no-one, no matter what gibberish they spout has “nothing to hide, nothing to fear” – it’s about liberty and not living in a police state where anyone in a uniform can “demand your papers”. If you are really going off the grid then you should learn how to use pigeons to send messages up and down the country like the olden times of yore.

So what is it with all these shifting alliances, especially with the most barbaric country in the world, and biggest fund raiser of terrorism, Saudi Arabia.

Well we are doing it to keep one of the few UK industries that is actually not running offshore after BREXIT, the arms industry, booming.

By selling weapons to Saudi Arabia and Qatar who then use them to kill kids in Yemen and then allow them to pass on the equipment and supply them to ISIS to fight themselves – convoluted I know but apparently despite funding and arming ISIS like Turkey they are also in an alliance to destroy them.

This anti ISIS alliance means nothing of course and history like Orwell predicted will be rewritten, but the amount of US/UK arms being found in overrun ISIS positions just shows our duplicity and complicity in the whole nefarious debacle.


George Orwell’s 1984, a tale of fiction not a road map to future militarism and a police state

We are living in a surveillance state.
We are being watched.
Constantly.

George Orwells oath to Big Brother

Tory plans to make us all Terrorists!

June 10, 2015

Tory plans to make us all Terrorists!

By Dark Politricks

This is a recent video from Russell Brand about the new UK Tory governments plans for a new anti terror bill that will crack down on free speech and other civil liberties.

It seems that with every new government we get a new “anti terrorism” law passed, Tony Blair passed at least 2 that I can remember. They were mostly used for memorable things such as:

  • Freezing all Icelandic money in UK banks after the Iceland Banking crisis – something which the Icelandic people have never forgiven us for. From my recent trip to Iceland I would not be surprised to see a statue of Gordon Brown put up in Reykjavik just so that people could throw tomatoes at it.
  • Throwing out and then arresting OAP protestors from Labour conferences who dared shout out “liar” as the warmongers on stage defended their illegal war on Iraq.
  • Allowing M16 / MI5 Agents to pass questions to CIA torturers at “black site” prisons and Gitmo, who then proceeded to abuse, humiliate and injure the prisoners many of which were innocent. The ones that are not, including leaders of the now destabilised mess of a country we “liberated” called Libya, are even now trying to sue the government for their complicity in torture e.g Abdul Hakim Belhaj. This included one incident in which one British jihadi’s fingernails were ripped out after MI6 suggested that a notorious Pakistani intelligence agency detain him, and MI5 and Greater Manchester police drew up questions to be put to him.
  • Cracking down on tourists and other photographers within London taking photos of buildings as they could be “planning terrorist” attacks.

We should always be careful when “new” terrorism laws are proposed. Especially as with the current one it is to be “fast tracked” through government.

This means no proper debate over the merits of the bill and no proper time to propose amendments and changes to the bill.

Hopefully enough libertarian/liberal-minded Labour, Lib Dem, SNP and hopefully Tory back benchers will stand up against this act of tyranny.

As I said in my last piece, the UK Tory Government, freed of the shackles of coalition with liberals, are planning on repealing the Human Rights Act. A piece of legislation brought in by Tony Blair in the 90’s but created from the European Convention on Human Rights which was drawn up by the Tory post war government to show to the world how civilised we should all be in future.

It is sad that a future Tory government is now going to remove this legislation due to a minority of cases where they have not been able to deport criminal immigrants due to their “right to a family life”.

It seems that the Tories wish that if you are born in this country and your parents are not, that if they commit a crime they can now be ripped away from you leaving you with the choice to follow them to whatever horrible war-torn country they escaped from (Libya, Somalia, Iraq, Syria, Sudan…).

The question is what level of criminality requires this response. I can understand the Government wishing to get rid of terrorists, murderers and rapists but what about non-payment of Council Tax, a crime punishable by prison, which many British born OAPs have found themselves facing? What crimes would exact this level of response, does a list even exist?

It seems we English are sticklers for the rule of law even when we don’t agree with small parts of it.

Instead of just ignoring section 8 of the Human Rights Act like France does whenever it wants to do something the EU prohibits we decide to throw the whole law away.

Instead of just declaring that the house of Commons is the supreme will of the people, and that if it votes to decide to remove someone from these shores because of a REAL terrorist crime then so be it, family or not. The problem comes with all the guff these bills include that label you and me “domestic terrorists” for speaking out against the Government, war, its foreign policy, support of Israel, or other civil rights that are being chipped away bit by bit never to return.

I have no problem if a REAL terrorist who is not a British citizen is deported at the end of his or her sentence. The problem is that the Government is proposing to throw the whole Human Rights Act away to achieve this instead of coming up with another solution.

If the House of Commons IS supposed to be the supreme will of the people because we have voted for it – try to forget the UKIP member who got 0 votes despite voting for himself for a moment, we don’t have voter fraud in Western Democracies, it’s just nasty evil countries like Russia that do things like that. Then a vote in the house should be enough to override any appeal on Human Rights grounds due to section 8. This is as long as the case has been proved beyond doubt, the convict has had his chance at appeal, and the criminal does in fact pose a threat to the country.

I am perfectly happy to see a UK Bill of Rights on TOP of, not INSTEAD of, the Human Rights Act, to achieve such aims if needed. I just don’t want to see families ripped apart over nonsensical crimes or crimes that shouldn’t even exist e.g drugs, protest, freedom of speech that goes against popular view etc.

David Cameron has gone on record to say that the belief that if you as a citizen “just followed the law you would be left alone”, is now going to be turned on its head.

That in itself is worrying Hilter-esque language that could be taken to mean anything.

Wasn’t an Englishman’s home his castle?

Were we not the creators of law as it exists in many countries through the Magna Carta, Due Process, the idea that we are all innocent until proven guilty.

What about the social contract between citizen and state that meant we plebs had our rights and the government protected them and the country as long as we paid our taxes?

As Russell Brand says in the piece below, a similar piece of legislation which the Tories are basing their own law on, was recently brought into Canada and the people were appalled by it.

It meant that:

  • Innocent words can be interpreted as terrorism – make of that what you will.
  • Speaking “recklessly” which could lead to a terrorist act being committed is a crime. So speaking out about the increasing authoritarian nature of our world on this blog could lead to a mentally disturbed reader to go and fly a plane into a skyscraper and I would spend 5 years in jail – fair?
  • Protesting could lead to government surveillance. So any kind of protest by Unions, Students, Occupy, or anybody against the increasing Police State be warned.
  • Meddling with ANY CORPORTATE INTERESTS could be interpreted as terrorism under the new UK act. So protests that prevent Vodafone from opening their doors (UKUncut beware!) or the use of Bitcoin or other electronic currencies that stopped the banks from monitoring your money could now be considered a crime.

Watch the video to see more and spread it.

Our rights are being eroded and we could all soon be considered terrorists for speaking our minds, protesting corruption and the corporate take over of our life.

Is that really terrorism or just the rights we should expect to enjoy as a member of a supposedly free country?

The Islamic State and why Saudi Arabia should be attacked

March 17, 2015

The Islamic State and why Saudi Arabia should be attacked

By Dark Politricks

This is what I mean when I stated in my last article that we are hypocritical when it comes to our treatment of Saudi Arabia in relation to ISIS.

Saudi Arabia, has decided to lash a woman 200 times for being gang-raped by seven men. Her actual crime was leaving her house, thus making being gang-raped her own fault, – Gang Raped Saudi Woman Sentenced to 200 lashes, 6 months in jail.

Two “Islamic States”, one gets massive arms supplies, Royal visits and ignored when it comes to their human right abuses. Whilst the other gets bombed and denounced as terrorists for doing the same thing in a cruder manner.

Whilst I have no problem admitting these evil ISIS bastards are terrorists. We must remember that we helped create them with our divide and conquer strategy in the Middle East that seems to be for the Greater Israel project.

Keep the enemy fighting amongst themselves whilst Israel expands and Bibi gets standing ovations at Congress for denouncing Iranian bomb making that is based on flimsy evidence at best, on top of a whole lot of lies and ignored data from reputable Atomic inspectors and agencies.

It seems as if the Israeli PM is more concerned about a non factual threat from Iran, whilst sitting on a whole pile of nuclear weapons that could destroy the Middle East himself, than the threat of ISIS on his door. Why?

Why would the Israelis who were so concerned about al-Qaeda not feel the threat of ISIS on their borders and concentrate instead on Iranian bomb making.

Here we have 3 Islamic States all being treated differently because of what they CAN do for their allies, and who they are allied to, rather than their actual potential threat to the outside world.

If we had to order the three by the amount of death and evil they have done to the world then Saudi Arabia, Israel’s ally against Iran and funder of terrorism around the world including 9.11 would surely sit at the top and Iran at the bottom.

The Saudi’s practise a form of 18th century Wahhabist Islam that the European Parliament in 2013 labelled as the main source of global terrorism.

This brutal form of anti Shi’ite Islamic brutality has even led to attacks on American citizens on their homeland. In fact entire sections of the 9.11 commission report was blacked out keeping Saudi Arabia’s name from their findings.

Even this nypost.com. explains it clearly.

“The Saudis deny any role in 9/11, but the CIA in one memo reportedly found “incontrovertible evidence” that Saudi government officials — not just wealthy Saudi hardliners, but high-level diplomats and intelligence officers employed by the kingdom — helped the hijackers both financially and logistically. The intelligence files cited in the report directly implicate the Saudi embassy in Washington and consulate in Los Angeles in the attacks, making 9/11 not just an act of terrorism, but an act of war.”

“The findings, if confirmed, would back up open-source reporting showing the hijackers had, at a minimum, ties to several Saudi officials and agents while they were preparing for their attacks inside the United States. In fact, they got help from Saudi VIPs from coast to coast.“

View the full article at nypost.com.

This can only be down to the close relationship between ex Saudi US ambassador, Prince Bandar and the Bush clan that prevented the natural course of a post 9.11 war on the real attackers, Saudi Arabia and their white washing from the attacks.

According to the official conspiracy theory, 15 of the hijackers were Saudi, with Saudi financing and Saudi help according to the leaked sections from the 28 full pages of the 800 page 9/11 commission report that were classified due to George W Bush’s say so.

Where 7,200 words once stood in the 9/11 commission report there are now just dots where a huge section related to the involvement of Saudi Arabia in the attacks were laid out.

“A pair of lawmakers who recently read the redacted portion say they are “absolutely shocked” at the level of foreign state involvement in the attacks.”

So why didn’t we see Saudi Arabia burned to a crisp rather than two unrelated countries that seemed to only further US and Israeli geopolitical goals?

Could it be the Bandar-Bush close ties or as some say “terrorist network”, that kept Saudi Arabia’s name from the report, despite their deep involvement in the killing of thousands of American citizens.

I keep being reminded of ex Mossad agent, Victor Ostrovsky in his book “By Way of Deception”, named after the Mossad Motto, when he repeats what he was told was the future of Saddam Hussein in the Middle East.

“After the bombing of Libya, our friend Qadhafi is sure to stay out of the picture for some time. Iraq and Saddam Hussein are the next target. We’re starting now to build him up as the big villain. It will take some time, but in the end, there’s no doubt it’ll work.”

“But isn’t Saddam regarded as moderate toward us, allied with Jordan, the big enemy of Iran and Syria?”

“Yes, that’s why I’m opposed to this action. But that’s the directive, and I must follow it. Hopefully, you and I will be done with our little operation before anything big happens. After all, we have already destroyed his nuclear facility, and we are making money by selling him technology and equipment through South Africa.”

In the following weeks, more and more discoveries were made regarding the big gun and other elements of the Saddam war machine. The Mossad had all but saturated the intelligence field with information regarding the evil intentions of Saddam the Terrible, banking on the fact that before long, he’d have enough rope to hang himself. It was very clear what the Mossad’s overall goal was. It wanted the West to do its bidding, just as the Americans had in Libya with the bombing of Qadhafi.

After all, Israel didn’t possess carriers and ample air power, and although it was capable of bombing a refugee camp in Tunis, that was not the same.

The Mossad leaders knew that if they could make Saddam appear bad enough and a threat to the Gulf oil supply, of which he’d been the protector up to that point, then the United States and its allies would not let him get away with anything, but would take measures that would all but eliminate his army and his weapons potential, especially if they were led to believe that this might just be their last chance before he went nuclear.

By Way Of Deception – Victor Ostrovsky

It seems as if the Israeli’s are up to their old tricks again regarding Syria and Iran using proxies such as ISIS to do their fighting for them plus of course the axis of war, the US/UK, who think they can win wars by bombing from planes.

In reality many people think this war from the air is an excuse to supply ISIS with weapons to keep the war going. Numerous papers have reported on this.

Iraqi army downs 2 UK planes carrying weapons to ISIL

Here is the Washington Post trying to excuse the dropping of weapons to ISIS by saying it was an accident.

We can’t have the war on terror ending too soon can we! Not when the militarisation of our police forces at home isn’t yet complete and we still have a few liberties left.

Remember this war on terror was because we had to fight these evil terrorists who hated our freedoms.

Doesn’t anyone think it strange we have lost more freedoms in the years since this war started than in any time before. Even when the IRA was at war with us for 30+ years we didn’t give up our liberties at home.

It was only with the installation of MI5 mole Tony Blair in the Labour party, who brought it so far into the centre ground that there was hardly any difference between it and the Tories, that we started handing our freedoms over on a plate and misusing them, such as Gordon Brown using anti-terrorism laws to freeze Icelandic money in UK banks after their financial crash.

I think the only left-wing party left with any MP’s in the UK parliament is the Green Party who has one! All the rest are pro-war, pro-austerity, pro-US foreign policy and pro-globalist.

So whilst Saudi Arabia is allied with Israel due their common hatred of Iran, the ISIS terrorists that Iran are actually doing the main fighting against along with the Kurds are being built up as the next big bogey man we should attack.

A repeat of Mossads built up of Saddam Hussein as the big bogey man so that their “big brother” could beat it up in the school playground years before.

If ISIS don’t attack Israel with all their weapons, money from oil sales to western companies, supplies from the US/UK and a supposedly rabid fundamentalist approach to Islam then something is very strange!

Either it’s due to factions within Saudi Arabia that are still financing them and commanding them not to disturb their Israeli ally or the Israeli’s have some kind of control over the group.

Even al-Qaeda made repeated calls to annex the evil Zionist state but I have been dearth of hearing anything of that kind from the head of Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Are Mossad following their motto “by way of deception” or is something else going on?

Why do Americans still celebrate Independence Day on the 4th of July

July 7, 2014

Why do Americans still celebrate Independence Day on the 4th of July

By Dark Politricks

On the 4th of July there is only one question that needs to be asked by all Americans who are actually celebrating this holiday.

“What are you actually celebrating and why?”

You may not be ruled by King George any-more but the recent 2 Presidents have acted far more like Kings than the English monarch ever did.

It cannot be the freedom of speech you used to cherish. No you have to have permits and free speech zones for protests now. Plus your constant chatter on the phones, Internet and talk in public is constantly monitored by technology like NSA’s PRISM, TRAPWIRE and the much older ECHELON.

It cannot be the free movement around the country without fear of harassment, secure in your papers from unreasonable searches. Not when the Police, TSATransport Cops, Border Guards and other agencies can now forcibly take blood and DNA samples from you, scan your naked body and grope your genitals if you refuse to be scanned, stored and studied as you go about your way.

Add to that the fact that most people are carrying the equivalent of chips in their skin by having smart phones on their person 24/7.

Phones that record your every movement to local databases on your phone that can easily be extracted by the Police or if you turn off this feature (check https://maps.google.com/locationhistory/b/0 once logged into Google to see if your history is currently being recorded) then it will still be logged at the phone company.

Turn your phones GPS off and your location can still be located down to a few square metres from pings to phone masts and a simple triangulation formula. Turn your battery off and there is still enough power to enable this to happen – maybe this is the reason most smart phones make it so hard to remove batteries nowadays.

It cannot be freedom from a tyrant, a King George like figure who thinks he has a God-given right to take your life. No the President now has the authority to take your life without even bothering with the charade that passes for a trial if he thinks you are a danger to your country. He just needs to consider you a danger to the country and sign a bit of paper and “boom” a drone is coming your way.

Freedom from drone strikes? Nope – not even if you’re a US citizen. Your just an enemy combatant who doesn’t have the right to argue your case in a court of law.

Freedom from assassination squads? Nope. Navy SEAL Teams and other commandos are scouring foreign countries to assassinate “terrorists” and the CIA are doing the same on the homeland for “malcontents”.

What about freedom to blow the whistle when you find that your government has broken the law, spied on people without warrants or committed massacres in war zones? No – if you write the wrong article in a paper or expose secrets that have been passed to you by a whistle-blower you are more likely to be considered a traitor than a hero in this new age.

It seems journalists who try to print the truth are considered nothing more than spies and the papers and journalists who dare to print your stories of government abuse will also be attacked, spied upon and harassed.

Even people who should know better will call for your execution on live TV. Who even knows whether these talking heads are even real TV personalities anymore rather than COINTELPRO agents stirring up hate against “enemies of the state” who dare speak truth to power.

What about the freedom to work long hours for little pay? Forced to hand over large amounts of your earnings for goods that your Government mandates you “must” purchase and then watch as the endless cycle of your Government buying its own printed money through the convoluted and corrupt Federal Reserve system means that the value of your wage decreases in real terms every month as your jobs are shipped overseas to people who are willing to work even longer and for much less?

It has now come to the stage that you are monitored so much in real life through linked up CCTV systems like TRAPWIRE, massive city sized computer systems that can log every purchase you make, every movement you make through your cars GPS tracking systems or even that useful bug you so happily carry around with you for others to track you with, your phone, that you cannot even escape into cyberspace any-more.

The virtual world is just as monitored as the real one.

I have to wonder whether the places you visit in virtual games  like Second Life are also bugged and monitored by virtual agents of the state? I’d guess the answer is most definitely especially after news that the NSA and GCHQ were using the chat services that online games employ to spy on the players.

Facebook, Google, Skype, Apple and all the other big techno giants we are being shepherded into using 24/7 are all just front ends to those 3 letter acronyms that litter the American landscape.

Acronyms like NSA, CIA, FBI and the  TSA are all hankering after those data packets that log every URL, website, file, instant message and email you have ever written.

These are the modern-day “papers” of the 21st century, and secure is not something you can expect to be, especially when you willingly hand over your data to the “cloud” for safe storage.

So if you celebrated “Independence Day” then I would be interested to know what is so special about your independence when compared to a dictatorship?

You have been living under emergency laws since 9.11.

Laws that give the President dictatorial like powers through Orwellian pieces of legalese like the PATRIOT ACT which was written years before the date and then eagerly dusted off when the events of 9.11 unfolded.

All to be enacted under a climate of fear and patriotism, where politicians didn’t even bother reading what they voted for and detractors were attacked with Anthrax or declared “unpatriotic”. All because they were not willing to hand over their basic rights such as habeas corpus, a fair trial, freedom from torture or the right to know what you have been accused of in an open court of law.

This was back when we had a far right government running the USA. Now we are supposedly living under a liberal, left wing, Democrat!

How I laugh when I hear Americans call Obama left wing or socialist! Society is not something he is promoting with Homeland Security asking neighbours to become de-facto spies and inform on each other or where over a million Americans have top secret security clearance.

There is nothing democratic or liberal about the NDAAdrone strikes at will or the President declaring that he can spy on anyone in the world without due process.

I have to wonder what President Obama see’s when he looks in the mirror.

Does he see the leader of a once great free nation that has succumb to fear, militarism, war mongering and the all-pervasive surveillance state.

If not, does he honestly believe he’s a liberal in charge of a “free nation”?

If so does he not feel the slightest bit of guilt when he looks at that Nobel Peace prize he was so, so prematurely given in the hope that pre-election rhetoric would be converted into real “hope and change” from the Bush/Cheney years?

Instead he has taken the ball from the GOP and kicked it out the stadium, far surpassing anything the Republicans did to kill liberty and freedom in America.

Wars have increased, with covert action and drone strikes occurring in more places across the world than ever before. All under the never-ending “war on terror” banner.

Liberty at home has decreased and a true liberal POTUS would have at least stood up for the freedoms he attacked Bush for removing when he was only a Senator. Does he honestly not believe he is the hypocrite is blatantly is.

It is funny how power corrupts.

It is not so funny to look at the state of Amerika on Independence day.

A Game Of Ping Pong Politics over Free Speech in the UK

January 27, 2014

A Game Of Ping Pong Politics over Free Speech in the UK

By Dark Politricks

Following my latest article on the ping-pong politics being played in the House of Commons v the House of Lords at the moment over a bill that will potentially gag campaign groups from speaking out for up to a year before general elections, there will be another vote in the House of Lords tomorrow.

Which way will they go and can you help?

Dear Dark Politricks Readers,

Here’s the plan. Tomorrow, Lords have to decide. Will they vote to put their improvements to the gagging law back in? Or do they give up and let MPs have their way? [1]

A growing coalition of organisations threatened by the gagging law – from Oxfam to Christian Aidthe Countryside Alliance to the Salvation Army – are planning full-page ads in major newspapers for tomorrow morning. They would carry a clear message: the public wants the Lords to hold firm and protect our democratic freedoms.

If we can raise enough money to run the ads, we can be confident they’ll get noticed. The House of Lords is the kind of place where newspapers get read. They’d be the talk of parliament’s tearooms as Lords weigh up how to vote.

The other groups involved will also chip in. But donations from 38 Degrees members will mean more adverts and bigger adverts. Please can you donate now to help make it happen?

Sometimes the Lords hesitate to challenge elected MPs. But on this occasion we can remind Lords that none of us ever voted for this attack on citizens speaking up. Neither the Lib Dems nor the Conservatives had this in their last election manifesto.

Our MPs need reining in, and the reality is that the Lords are the people in a position to do it.

So, an ad like this will remind Lords that groups representing thousands and thousands of people – charities, campaigners, voluntary groups – all support their attempt to make the gagging law less bad.

Will you chip in right now to make it happen?

https://secure.38degrees.org.uk/chip-in

It’s perhaps ironic that in a campaign that is all about protecting democracy, we end up relying on the unelected House of Lords. But the reality is that unless the House of Lords holds firm, the gagging law goes through. That would mean huge new restrictions on everyone’s freedom to speak up on the issues that matter.

And whatever you think about the House of Lords, these adverts would also tell a story that has been true throughout this campaign. The threat of the gagging law has brought all kinds of different people and organisations together. [2] We don’t all agree about everything. But we do all agree that everyone has the right to get organised and speak up for what they believe in. Let’s remind the House of Lords of that.

If enough 38 Degrees members chip in £10 each, we can get prominent space in newspapers like the Telegraph, the Times and the Guardian. Click here to donate:

Our lovely police protecting and serving

Our lovely police protecting and serving

By Dark Politricks

To go alongside my festive Metropolitan Policeman’s Christmas Card from last year I thought I would print this lovely picture that I just saw on Google+.

Policeman - Ready to serve and protect
Stop Moving Bitch I’m Here To Serve And Protect

Obviously photo’s like this do nothing to help the already stained image of our police force.  An unarmed woman is chased by a Robocop suited angry cop waving his baton in a striking motion.

I am sure the woman has just asked this friendly cop where the nearest public toilets were or if he could help her find her lost puppy.

It just had to be something horrible like that to cause such a violent response in the policeman.

I just cannot think of anything that would have enraged this cop so much that he would try and attack her in such a way that could permanently damage her depending on if and where the baton struck her. Those extendable metal truncheons hurt you a lot if you get hit by them. If you get hit round the head you could possibly die from the blow as many people have.

Ian Tomlinson an innocent bystander in the 2009 G20 protests in London was hit around the legs by a cop with such a truncheon and he shortly died afterwards from a heart attack.

The inquest into his death found that he had been unlawfully killed. The policeman who had hit him Simon Harwood was charged with manslaughter and was dismissed by the Metropolitan Police for gross misconduct. The Metropolitan Police settled a civil action by Tomlinson’s family by issuing a formal apology for its “use of excessive and unlawful force” against Tomlinson, and agreed to pay an undisclosed sum in compensation.

I have to ask what possible act could this lady have done to enrage a policeman so much that he thought it was necessary to chase and attack her with an extendable metal truncheon?

It’s probably standard operating procedures for our now police state enforcers. Dare to defy the overlords and face the consequences serfs!

This is the photo the police were sending round to each other as “a joke” which obviously got released to the public so that we could see the funny sense of humour our policemen have.

Serve and Protect or Beat and Bet Corrupt?

My end of year Dark Politricks review 2013

January 1, 2014

My end of year Dark Politricks review 2013

By Dark Politricks

Once again I bring the year to a close with a review of what I think are the biggest stories of the last 365 days.

There are so many to choose from therefore I have just picked a few of the important points that managed to make it from the alternative news to the mainstream and back again.

There is a poll at the end and it would be great if you could take part and let me know your thoughts on the matter.

Syria – war averted for once.

For once the Axis of war didn’t get its way when it came to the war they desperately wanted in Syria. This war had been planned since 9.11 and it was part of the “Sweep it all up. Things related and not” comment made by Donald Rumsfeld in the aftermath of the 9.11 attacks.

Iraq was to fall first, then Syria and finally Iran. A splintered Middle East with no serious opposition to US / Israel power in the regime was the aim. A Greater Israel was the dream and a fractured opposition had to be created for the dream to become true.

However after the debacle of the Iraq war Iran became the main benefactor of the US/UK failure to suppress the uprising and they left with their tails between their legs. This scared the hell out of Israel and meant that the axis of evil had to ferment a Sunni uprising to get the Shiites and Sunnis fighting amongst themselves all over the region to prevent a united Iraq coming under the total influence of Iran.

The plan was to destroy Syria and block Syrian  help to their Hezbollah agents who were receiving arms from their benefactor to use against northern Israel. Not only would Syria be cracked into a hundred pieces as Alawites fought Sunni’s and Shiites, but the Christians who had lived there for thousands of years in peace would be caught in the middle as Church after Church was destroyed, ancient villages taken over and ruined, and kids were forced at gun point to convert to Islam.

However it was determined Russian Diplomacy that prevented this useless war in the Middle East over Syria from coming to fruition. Whilst the French, British and US were trying to gain public support for another war, the people just weren’t buying their lies anymore.

US soldiers put their jobs on the line and used social media to show their disdain for fighting yet another war alongside al-Qaeda terrorists with their #IdidntJoin and #NoSyriaWar Twitter campaigns.

They could see that their Government was duplicitous and had no problems using al-Qaeda as the bogeyman in one part of the world and then supply guns, training and support for them in another war zone if it helped their geo-political goals.

Here are just a few of the photos from the #IdidntJoin and #NoSyriaWar Twitter campaign.

Read about the #IdidntJoin #NoSyriaWar campaign here.

With videos of Free Syrian Army soldiers (supposedly moderates) eating hearts and lungs of dead soldiers and then putting them up on Youtube.com, the world quickly saw that this was no rebel army that shared their common culture, ideals and ethics that we did in the west. Why on earth would we want to fight alongside this lot of Islamic heart eaters.

Also why was it that our leaders were so keen to back the heart eating, beheading, child killing nutters in Syria when they are basically the same people who were killing our own soldiers on the streets of London such as the horrible case of Lee Rigby?

With fake claims of Chemical weapons attacks by Syrian forces, and huge stashes of Sarin gas found in rebel compounds it was clear the idea was to use a false flag attack to draw us into the war on the side of the Saudi and UAE backed Islamic extremists.

However with Russian diplomacy actually paying dividends, and the amazing display of UK bottle that showed the UK government wouldn’t just blindly follow the USA into any war they wanted us in, the plan to bomb Syria soon fell apart.

The Syrian regime said they would hand over all their chemical weapons and come to the peace table, something the Islamic terrorists didn’t want to do without first getting President Assad to resign. However the US accepted the plan and another war has been averted – so far.

The war was all about taking Syria off the chessboard so that Hezbollah was weakened and Iran would become Isolated.

However this hasn’t happened and it has shown the west up for its real reasons for starting another useless war in the Middle East. Geo-political reasons, protection of Israel, the splintering of any anti-western alliances and the building of more military bases in sensitive areas that control oil and major shipping lanes.

The Iraq War

The 10th birthday of the Iraq war was the bloodiest since 2008. with 1000’s of deaths everyday the bombings continue daily as Sunni extremists fight the Shiite government and the civilians are caught in the crossfire.

The plan may have been to get the Iraqi’s fighting amongst themselves but instead it has given the Iraqi’s a Shiite government focused towards Iran. This is probably the reason the number of roadside bombings assassinations and killings has been ramped up as Sunni’s try to re-gain power through force.

It does make me laugh now to see that picture of George Bush aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln claiming that the war in Iraq was now over back in 2003, on May 1st – just over a DECADE ago!

George W Bush stated at the time that this was the end to major combat operations in Iraq. However it was just the beginning of the Iraqi insurgency.

In fact the majority of casualties, both military and civilian, occurred after this foolish speech by the “Commander-in-Chief” of the allied forces.

Mission un-acomplished

Edward Snowden

He has been the receiver of many awards this year but he is still stuck in limbo with only temporary asylum in RussiaEdward  Snowden was  the NSA analyst that had to go on the run to reveal what he knew about the massive surveillance state the USA had built up over the past decade.

The start, of this huge monitoring of the masses began many years ago with programs like ECHELON, yet after 9.11 the rules were brushed aside about not spying on your own countrymen and the US Constitution was treated like the piece of old paper George W Bush once claimed it was.

With the help of Glenn Greenwald and a number of papers including The UK’s Guardian, Snowden and Greenwald revealed the massive computer servers that were literally sucking terabytes of data straight from major routers, under water pipes, and back doors in commonly used programs.

Programs and applications many of us use such as Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Skype, Twitter and many others who were secretly working in cahoots with the security state.

Programs such as PRSIM were revealed to the masses and it was quickly explained how just with an email address or telephone number an NSA analyst could enter it into a computer and then find out anything about that person that resided online.

From email boxes “in the cloud” such as Gmail (which was the downfall of CIA chief David Petraeus ) to TRAPWIRE a huge link up of CCTV cameras, traffic cameras, cinema and parking tickets and credit card purchases in shops the data “trapped” could be used to monitor your movements through a city 24/7.

In fact the amount of data was so large that the US Government had to build a city sized computer server warehouse in UTAH to hold it all.

As revealed by Wired this center is a:

“heavily fortified $2 billion center (and) should be up and running in September 2013. Flowing through its servers and routers and stored in near-bottomless databases will be all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Google searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trails—parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital “pocket litter.”

As most of us are all walking around with monitoring devices on us 24/7 i.e phones we are basically asking to be tracked. Our modern phones contain a myriad of ways to monitor and track us from having the microphone remotely turned on to listen to us or the camera switched on to take photographs of our surroundings. That’s forgetting about the GPS positioning that pinpoints us at any time. Useful for when you have lost your phone but not so handy when you don’t want the security state to know where you are.

Even with GPS disabled, triangulation from phone masts can be used to pinpoint us less accurately, and have you noticed how all smart phones nowadays make it impossible to remove the battery?

That’s because even with your phone switched off there is enough electricity in the device to “ping” it and locate it or turn on the microphone or camera. The only way to be safe would be to leave it at home when your going somewhere you “shouldn’t” or buy an old “numpty” phone – one of those designed for OAP’s that let you text and make calls only.

Oh and don’t forget that Google and IPhone have been caught numerous times recording all our GPS co-ordinations on a hidden database in the phone that can be easily removed (even without wires) by Policemen to find out where we have been. Think you are living in George Orwell’s 1984 – well we are well past that by 30 years now!

You can read some of the ways to reduce your Internet footprint on this article of mine but unless you want to live without a phone, TV and computer you are basically hooked into the Matrix and available for monitoring at any time.

Edward Snowden is wanted by the US government for revealing state secrets but many see him as a hero for revealing the level of spying the NSA went to after the reigns were let off them after 9.11.

With the UK’s GCHQ basically acting as their “bitch” and doing lots of dirty work purely for cash. The “Special Relationship” is alive and well. Also without a written Constitution or Bill or Rights to rein them in the junior partners across the Atlantic are able to get away with a whole lot more than the NSA can. Even trawling the whole Internet for data to be analysed for “potential” threats.

These NSA analysts are even going even as far as playing games like World of Warcraft because they believed terrorists were using the inbuilt talking and messaging features within the VOIP games to send messages to each other about potential attacks – either that or it was some clever clogs idea at the NSA to let them play games all day whilst their superiors thought they were working.

Edward Snowden gave this years Channel 4 alternative Christmas speech. It is well worth listening to.

Chelsea Manning

An important story which was supposed to be about liberty and war crimes was turned into a MSM piece about sexuality and unimportant questions. This was due to Chelsea Manning’s decision to mitigate his “crimes” on a “confused sexual identity status” instead of the morality of what he was doing by revealing war crimes by the US Army in Iraq.

What should have been a massive debate in the public sphere about the legality of acts of war was turned into a farce.  The war crime such as the one he released to WikiLeaks which showed innocent Iraqi’s and TV reporters shot to death by US pilots who were almost climaxing during the event was totally ignored and just treated as “war as normal”.

Who should junior soldiers report these crimes against humanity to. Crimes which break numerous International laws and conventions?

What happens if they are ignored or punished. Would they even dare to bring the matter up to a superior and would that superior even listen or would they be disciplined for breaking the all important rule to “shut your mouth and do your job”.

With the number of US female soldiers who complain about sexual assault being jailed in containers in Iraq for just raising the issue it is clear the US military has no time for “complainers” whether the complaint is valid or not.

In July of 2005, Jamie Leigh Jones, then 20 and working in Iraq, alleged she was gang-raped and beaten by fellow KBR employees and locked in a shipping container by managers after she sought out law enforcement. Jones and her lawyers, who lost a federal civil suit against KBR in July, said nearly 40 other female KBR employees who worked in Afghanistan and Iraq told them stories of rape, beatings and sexual harassment.

The FED celebrated it’s 100th birthday in 2013.

Responsible for numerous bubbles, booms n busts, the US Federal Reserve act was passed in the dead of night in 1913.

This act enabled the big banks to control the money supply of the USA by printing it and  then lending it to their friends in the banking world. With the positions in the Treasury and the big banks like Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan acting more like a revolving door it is no wonder the big banks always get their bailouts on the backs of the poor tax payers when they play roulette with our savings and pensions and then lose.

With a few lone voices like Ron Paul calling for an end to the FED the movement to end this printing of fiat currency and the Government paying it back with interest from tax payers has been brought to the mainstream and more and more people are asking why we have such a system in the first place.

With many founding US fathers claiming the war of Independence was about controlling their own money and not letting the English tax them without representation the FED would be the anti-Christ if they could see it in action now.

From a recent article by George Washington:

The Federal Reserve Act was passed in 1913 in response to a wave of bank crises, which had hit on average every six years over a period of 80 years. The resulting economic depressions triggered a populist movement for monetary reform in the 1890s. Mary Ellen Lease, an early populist leader, said in a fiery speech that could have been written today:

Wall Street owns the country. It is no longer a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, but a government of Wall Street, by Wall Street, and for Wall Street. The great common people of this country are slaves, and monopoly is the master. .. . Money rules. .. .Our laws are the output of a system which clothes rascals in robes and honesty in rags. The parties lie to us and the political speakers mislead us. .. .

We want money, land and transportation. We want the abolition of the National Banks, and we want the power to make loans direct from the government. We want the foreclosure system wiped out.

That was what they wanted, but the Federal Reserve Act that they got was not what the populists had fought for, or what their leader William Jennings Bryan thought he was approving when he voted for it in 1913. In the stirring speech that won him the Democratic presidential nomination in 1896, Bryan insisted:

[We] believe that the right to coin money and issue money is a function of government. .. . Those who are opposed to this proposition tell us that the issue of paper money is a function of the bank and that the government ought to go out of the banking business.

I stand with Thomas Jefferson. .. and tell them, as he did, that the issue of money is a function of the government and that the banks should go out of the governing business.

With Wall Street banks that were called “Too big to fail” in 2008 now almost 3 times as big in 2013 Wall Street is a monster out of control. The Occupy moment may have opened some people eyes to how debt based money really works and how the US Government is occupied and owned by Wall Street banksters but it is not enough.

Without some banksters being jailed for their crimes as they were in Iceland the banksters will continue to steal and pillage money from the masses. Then when they are caught out when their  convoluted investment pyramid schemes fail as they always do they claim bailouts from the tax payers. The same game goes on as usual.

A few heads on poles outside the City of London and Wall Street including those of Jamie Dimon and Lloyd Blankfein would be a nice start but until the austerity measures implemented by our government starts to bite hard not enough people will get angry enough to demand blood for their poverty and the bankers crimes.

Hopefully 2014 will be a better year as more and more people are becoming awakened to the games played all around them by Governments and banks. If 2013 ha been a good year for you then great if not lets all plan to make 2014 a better one.

Please take the time to let me know what you think the most important act of 2013 was with this poll. You can add comments or extra options as I have only put in a few of many possible questions.

Use the comment box on the page at the bottom or the comment box on the Polldaddy page if you want.

We need a political revolution

December 15, 2013

We need a political revolution

By Dark Politricks

It has been a good 5 years since the financial meltdown and what have we got done apart from a widening awakening in the people who “something just aint right”?

  • We have had both the Tea Party and Occupy protest movements.
  • Protests across Europe from Spain to Greece and the UK over “austerity” measures forced on them by the rich.
  • Huge tax breaks for the rich and welfare cuts for the poor.
  • Bailouts from tax payer money for the banks that were too big too fail and too big to jail. In fact the six of the largest institutions that we said were too big to fail are now actually 37%bigger than they were in 2008!
  • Small fines or “Get out of jail free cards” by our bankster owned governments for any bank engaged in criminal activities such as HSBC with their special banking facilities for drug dealers and terrorists. Or Goldman Sachs who were fined for selling dodgy mortgage investments.
  • A world leader, President Obama, who was elected by liberals wanting the Police State being formed and lamented by them at the time in the aftermath of 9.11 who went back on all his promises. In fact he went on and continued the Bush policies making the USA a defacto Police State. When a leader of a country (and one who is supposed to be a constitutional lawyer) can declare himself above the Constitution and order the assassination of anyone at anytime, American or not, without judicial oversight, then we have a major problem and the US is no longer a constitutional republic.

So the question is: what are we doing about all this apart from bitching and moaning and just putting up with all the cuts in our public services as money is siphoned off from the lower classes and sucked up to the top few percent of the nation?

Not a lot it seems otherwise we would have a few rich people’s heads on sticks by now outside the Tower of London and along the bridge like we used to do. If only.

It seem’s the only nation who has the balls to actually jail some of  the banksters who caused some of this mess are the people of Iceland. A nation of less than half a million people have jailed more bankers than the UK and the USA together it seems. They have jailed:

  • Baldur Guðlaugsson, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Finance, who was sentenced to two years probation by the District Court of Reykjavík for insider trading.
  • Aron Karlsson was sentenced to 2 years in prison by the District Court of Reykjavík for defrauding Arion Bank in real estate dealings.
  • Lárus Welding, CEO of Glitnir, and Guðmundur Hjaltason, Managing Director of Corporate Banking of Glitnir, were sentenced to 9 months in prison by the District Courtof Reykjavík for a major breach of trust.
  • Friðfinnur Ragnar Sigurðsson, Glitnir employee, was sentenced to 1 year in prison by the District Court of Reykjanes for insider trading.
  • Styrmi Þór Bragason, President of MP Bank, was sentenced to 1 year in prison by the Supreme Court for breach of trust.

So what is it going to take for the people, who are admittedly awaken and pissed, to actually remove the existing leading elites that are right of center (despite their names).

These are people who see nothing wrong with loading up future generations with so much debt that it won’t be long until we see real Brazilian or South African shanty towns on the edge of cities like London and New York because it is just too expensive to rent let alone buy a house.

It looks like only people who already have money will survive in this new brave world and it’s a lot easier to make money from money than the 50+ hour weeks of manual labour most of us have to put up with.

It certainly helps that when you are rich you can walk into a bank and get a huge loan to invest in shares or a new business staffed by zero hour contracted workers at a few percent.

The rest of  the masses are left with loan sharks such as Wonga who charge anything up to 5853% APR for a loan of £150 for 18 days (taken from the front page of their website).

Not only are we being priced out of getting money from the “normal banking system” (if normal is a word that can be applied to it then that’s debatable) – but we are being denied any sense of equal distribution of wealth to help balance out the luck of the few who are born into money and the hardships of the many who only succeed through hard work and a huge dose of luck being applied to their lives.

One of the ways the elite are trying to keep their wealth and systems of control to themselves is by loading people up with debt at such an early age that it is considered normal to be in tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of debt throughout your life with little hope of ever being debt free.

In the olden days – by that I mean the 50’s – people didn’t buy something unless they had the money to afford it. They saved up the relevant money and only when they could walk into the shop and buy it outright would they even consider making a purchase such as a TV or Car.

Nowadays credit cards and student loans are normalizing debt and making young people believe it to be standard to live with multiple Credit Companies octopus tentacles all over their backs.

Not only are they normalizing debt enslavement from an early age they are making it so expensive to go to University that only rich people will be properly educated in the future. If you are expected to leave University with a £50k debt and little chance of a job apart from a menial non skilled job in the local pound store then why would you even bother to go to College?

It is only the wealthy and connected who know that “father knows someone in the City” that will be able to leave Oxbridge and walk into high paid jobs in the city that enable them to pay off any debt in no time at all.

Oh and don’t forget the new plans by the Tories to make the unemployed work for their benefits. £70 a week a pitiful and humiliating amount of money to live on per week if you have just been made redundant from a £60,000 a year job because your boss realised it was much cheaper to outsource your position to India or China. Yet to make it even worse, if you can’t get a job sharpish you are now going to be expected to work a full week for your £70.

Oh thank you Government for taking care of me in these hard times. Times you have made worse by letting banksters ruin our economy and strip, privatise and literally burgle the family jewels for themselves while you sat back and did nothing because you were promised a job in their company once you left Government.

How the Lib Dem’s can let this happen I have no idea. Fuck the Lib Dem’s you are never getting my vote again for what you have let the Tories do to this country. I doubt I will vote again until a party is formed that is actually FOR THE PEOPLE and RUN FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE MANY NOT THE FEW.

The young are the most Internet savvy and this is why the elite are so busy trying to crack down on Internet sites that disseminate knowledge that used to be only known by the elites and occult groups (occult = hidden knowledge).

Therefore the last 20 years of websites spreading information about fiat currency and how our money is debt based, or how wars are used to further geo-political purposes and even corporations balance sheets whilst being mis-sold to the public on “human rights” and “ethical grounds”, are all reasons why the elite want to limit this knowledge to their own kind only.

Without the Internet many of us, including myself would never have found out how certain groups of people have always held power and the ways they use to keep it in their hands.

We would all still be little patriotic soldiers from the first World War thinking we were going to fight for freedom and justice if it weren’t for the web spreading the ways the establishment do all they can to paint people who oppose their plans as “unpatriotic” or “domestic extremists”.

So those are our problems but what do we do.

Well we know the NSA is monitoring anything we type and send to each other so a proper full-armed revolution will probably be cracked down on within a few days just by taking out the leaders and making certain agitators go “missing” as they used to do so well in South America.

Our phones we carry around everywhere are permanent monitoring devices that can be used to track our movements and if they wanted to even remotely turn on the camera and microphone and take photos or listen to us. Paranoid? Only if they aren’t watching you and by the looks of things it seems the NSA and GCHQ are watching EVERYBODY.

Therefore if we are to overthrow this corrupt elite we need a de-centralised and compartmentalized movement – a bit like how terrorist organisations work. Basic technology, pencils n paper and low tech with whispers in the park and baseball caps pulled down low whenever a CCTV camera is approached.

However this would rely on people having the balls to risk jail for acts of civil disobedience as well as being able to afford to take time off from their jobs at McDonalds and Starbucks to protest. And if they can’t afford the time off work to form a revolution it will be left to the millions of unemployed to actually get cold and hungry enough to storm the barricades not giving a fuck about the consequences because their current existence is already worse than anything the POWER can do to them.

So a logical option would be to actually form a new political party and use social media, existing protest groups, trade unions and other community groups to spread the word of it’s existance. We already have 3rd parties like the Green’s, the Justice Party, Libertarians or UKIP but for a younger and more tech savvy populace we need a Pirate Party that is concerned with more than just digital rights management and P2P downloading.

The Trade Unions are already pissed off with Labours abandonment of them, a political party they created. In reality Labour have moved so far to the right that they are no longer relevant or even related in any conceptual way with the unions that created them.

Ed is trying to split the link even further by making each union member chose whether their fees are used for party donations and now would be the perfect time to get them to break the link completley and use their funds to help a new party that REALLY is for the benefit of the people.

We need a party that isn’t formed of political apparatchiks who have only worked in the depths of party HQ since leaving University with a degree in politics. People such as Ed Milliband, David “call me Dave” Cameron and many of the others.

We need real people who have real knowledge of what it’s like to live in modern UK or the USA. We elect, jail and then re-elect crack smoking mayors for God’s sake so let’s have no hypocrisy over past deeds and criminal histories.

We need people who have lived REAL lives, and in this day and age that means you have probably used drugs and maybe have a criminal record. As long as you don’t claim to be a saint who preaches moralistic bullshit about God and Family only to be caught in an Airport bathroom stall trying to get some “strange” off the occupant in the next cubicle then I have no care about your sexual bias or history.

We need laws that prevent corruption of our politicians and stop lobbyists from highly funded arms companies, AIPAC and banks from getting their claws into the law makers. In fact it should be illegal and punishable by a stretch in prison for any potential politician to sign letters promising to “always put country X first” in every vote they take. The people of OUR countries should come first and these lobby groups should never forget that fact.

Any politician should be prevented from ever working for a company he or she has voted in favour for. Seeing politicians walk out of Congress and straight into the offices of JP Morgan after serving on certain finance committees should be seen as a sign of duplicitous self-interest and not whatever BS excuse that said politician comes out with. Breaking the link between the power of powerful interests and the politicians that SHOULD BE controlling them should be key on any agenda of a new political consensus.

Health Care, Education and Jobs should be seen as necessities and not rights for the preserve of those with enough money to afford them. We can do without the huge war machines we have funded for centuries and the half million pound missiles that we waste by firing them into Somalian and Yemen mud huts for no gain but massive backlash by the local population.

A non militaristic foreign policy would not only bring benefits in terms of the world reversing their view of us as imperialists out to grab natural resources and geo-political control, but it would also save money that could be used to ensure we can all get quality health care and education throughout our lives.

Only constant education to keep our skill sets up to date and our ability to be employable is the answer to the growing skill gap between East and West. When education becomes too expensive and only available to the rich it divides society and causes social unrest. We don’t want to end up living in South African style cities where the rich whites live in high walled mini towns with private armed security guards and the poor blacks spend their time robbing and burgling them due to lack of opportunity and fair life chances.

Yes life isn’t fair and no-one said it was.

However as a civilised race we should be in the position to do our best to equal out random life opportunities as much as possible.

Just because I was lucky enough to be born in a rich western nation shouldn’t mean that those people born in Bangladesh should have to go to work before the age of 8 pulling apart dangerous batteries or breaking up huge ships covered in dangerous chemicals. We should have enough moral fibre to realise that sending our shit to poor countries to sift through isn’t ethical or humane.

Bangladesh Ship Yards

So yes the web is monitoring everything we do but we can still use it to our own means. Maybe we need an open source website where we can all get together and help formulate policies and ideas for a new party. If we cannot beat them from the outside then the only other way will be from within their own walls.

The only problem will be the agent provocateurs and plants the establishment will install in any new movement such as Tony Blair whose role was to move Labour away from the people and into establishment hands. 4 wars Tony was and never was a socialist. If he claimed to be then he was lying through his teeth. We should be on the watch for smiling liars like Blair and a healthy stock of truth serum and lie detector machines might be a good first purchase.

To conclude, the problem is that however much we sit and moan about our plight nothing is really getting done and our supposed political parties that should represent us don’t. Therefore we need a new political party that really does represent the people. The People’s Party would be a good name.

It is only my own idea but I hope someone with more power than little ole me can get a few balls moving.

After the shutting down of Silk Road who will pop up to take it’s place?

October 4, 2013

After the shutting down of Silk Road who will pop up to take it’s place?

By Dark Politricks

Recently we have had the shut down of the online darknet Silk Road website.

Apparently the man behind it, Ross Ulbricht, was found with bitcoins worth $3.6m (£2.2m) when the FBI raided him.

What we need is a proper “DarkNet search engine”.

The problem is once it was created everyone would be on it and it wouldn’t be dark anymore.

However a program, downloaded to the users computer like P2P software, that crawled behind the scenes to find “dark” sites from links on certain messageboards and other “known dark site” locations could be made instead.

Just like the NSA and their own super Google, we need a way to quickly make a local search engine on the users PC of encrypted files that when ran locally acted like a search engine.

No public domain, no WHOIS records, just a way to obtain the software and  download it to your PC and run it locally.

The website would be local to your PC so no log files and just return sites from a local search engine – your own personal naughty Google.

Obviously you would use TOR like software or proxies to make all HTTP requests – but then you would be doing that anyway if you had half a brain. Maybe you would need to prove yourself first before downloading it – maybe after a criminal record check to ensure you ARE a criminal!

Maybe I might just build my own one for a test and see how it goes. I did manage to make a similar piece of software called Proxy Hunter that goes off and finds proxies from any website, decodes the source using various methods, tests and then stores the Proxies on demand for use if required. Works a charm.

This could be a good programming challenge! Who will take it up!

Remember people.

Crawling the web is NOT illegal, sending drugs over state or country borders is!

Whether drugs should be legalised altogether is another question!

However what I cannot believe is why the doofus behind the site used an email address with his name in it?

Had he never heard of disposable email addresses?

All it seems to take is one mistake by an idiot criminal not thinking ahead far enough and then a few years later – bang – 6 o’clock knock by the old bill (or FBI in his case).

Lets see what pops up in it’s place.

Just like a drugs gang, when one gets shut down, ten new ones open in their place.

If any of you have any links, messaboards that point to such links, or known front ends to such dark sites, then please forward them (email or comment) on so I can help write this crawler.

It will be an interesting challenge but obviously I don’t want to crawl google but instead know hubs and maybe “submitted” links. Proxy front ends for Pirate Bay, new Silk Roads, alternative news sites that appear no-where in Google and other sites that would be of “interest” to certain people.

England and Wales Stop and Search Consultation – Let the Government know what you think!

September 16, 2013

England and Wales Stop and Search Consultation – Let the Government know what you think!

By Dark Politricks

The UK government is holding an open consultation with the public over their thoughts on the controversial stop and search powers that are used (and abused) by the Police.

As anyone who knows stop and search can be a humiliating experience. You are prevented from going along your way, frisked and even strip searched (as I have in a pub toilet) and basically treated like a criminal even if you haven’t done anything wrong.

Anyone who knows the statistics of stop and search realises that the most likely people to be stopped are black young males, or people of colour and youths.

“But they commit the crime” you might say, and you might be right in that some statistical studies show that in poorer neighbourhoods the majority of criminals fit those profiles.

However it is more likely that wealth and social factors are to play when it comes down to whether or not someone is a criminal and as the recent banking crisis shows, if you are a super rich, high flying, banker who robs billions from the country then you are not even likely to be convicted let alone stopped or searched!

Therefore if you are an uneducated poor working class male, coloured or not, you are more likely to live in areas of high crime, be drawn into gang culture or just stopped by the police due to your postcode.

A recent article in the Guardian has this to say when the current Home Secretary spoke at the Police Superintendents’ Association of England and Wales.

Theresa May has warned the police that improper use of their stop-and-search powers can cause immense resentment and undermine public co-operation.

The home secretary said: “I do not have to tell you how important it is that public confidence in the police is maintained. And it simply cannot be maintained if people think that senior police officers are lacking in integrity or behaving in a self-serving way – or if, on the street, your constables are being rude and disrespectful to the public.”

Her speech, to the Police Superintendents’ Association of England and Wales conference, marks May’s strongest language yet in her campaign to scale back the “waste of time” involved in the 1.2m searches carried out by the police on the street every year. She has said that the resulting arrest rate, which can be as little as 3% in some areas, is “far too low for comfort”.

But, significantly, the home secretary also praised the police for their capacity to deliver despite having suffered a 20% cut in their Whitehall funding. She even called them “the model public service”, in sharp contrast to her previous description of them as “the last unreformed public service”.

“You have cut crime with fewer officers and lower budgets,” May said. “You are doing more with less. That makes you the model public service in the era of budget cuts.”

The home secretary told the superintendents that stop and search could be an invaluable tool for reducing crime, particularly knife crime; if used properly and fairly, the tactic worked very effectively.

She added, however: “But the caveat is vital: it works if it is used properly and fairly. Stop and search has the potential to cause immense resentment and honesty to the police, with all the implications that has for generating distrust and ending co-operation from the public, if it is not used fairly.”

You can let the Government know what you think about the stop and search powers the police currently have and how they could be changed in a public consultation they are having at www.gov.uk. Currently the Police must have reasonable suspicion that you have or are about to commit a crime before stopping you or that you are carrying weapons or drugs. As the government consultation page says.

This consultation seeks views on the police powers of stop and search, specifically under the following legislation:

  • section 1 of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (PACE)
  • section 23 of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971
  • section 60 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994

It concerns those powers used in relation to street crime, burglary, antisocial behaviour, and public order offences such as riots and violent protests.

The aim of the consultation is to understand how the public and those involved in policing view the use of these powers. Stop and search powers under counter-terrorism legislation have been the subject of recent changes and are not within the scope of this consultation.

You can read the full documentation by downloading the following relevant link.

Consultation on police powers of stop and search: Welsh version
The consultation period has been extended and now runs until 24 September 2013. So we have more time to let the police and the UK government know that we want the Labour police state rolled back as much as possible and that anti-terrorism laws shouldn’t be abused by stopping tourists taking photos or other spurious reasons for detaining people.
