Daily Kos Releases Dubious Poll To Undermine Support For Rand Paul

But even the results of this brazenly bias survey show the Kentucky primary winner is still beating his Democrat opponent

Daily Kos Releases Dubious Poll To Undermine Support For Rand Paul 280510top

In a blatant effort to counter the recent independent Rasmussen poll which found that, despite a contrived corporate media smear campaign, Rand Paul was beating his Democratic opponent Jack Conway by a whopping 25 points, establishment liberal outfit The Daily Kos has released a dubious poll that claims Paul is only leading by three points.

A survey conducted on May 19 by the politically non-partisan Rasmussen polling agency found that Paul held a gargantuan 25 point lead over Democrat Jack Conway amongst likely voters in Kentucky’s U.S. Senate race.

The Daily Kos commissioned Research 2000, a group they have worked with before, to conduct a poll which was released yesterday. The results of the survey claim that Paul’s lead over Conway has shrunk to just 3 points in the aftermath of the corporate media smear campaign against him.

Daily Kos is a neo-liberal website run by an establishment apologist who routinely attacks independent politicians who are not part of the two party system. Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas even attacked darling of the left Dennis Kucinich when he refused to tow the party line on government run health care by pointing out that the Obamacare bill was written by the insurance companies.

Former Central Intelligence Agency trainee Moulitsas, who once described the CIA as a “very liberal institution,” accused Kucinich of being responsible for the deaths of 44,000 Americans.

“Lucky for him, railing against the Civil Rights Act plays to his base,” writes Moulitsas in an accompanying article to the poll, pointing out that Rand Paul’s support amongst Republicans had risen since the controversy. This comment alone betrays the inherent bias of The Daily Kos and is a red flag that the poll is completely untrustworthy in comparison to the Rasmussen survey.

Rand Paul never ‘railed against the Civil Rights Act’ – it wasn’t even part of his platform. He responded to an underhanded smear attempt to characterize him as a racist by advancing a philosophical and nuanced position on one of the ten titles of the Civil Rights Act, a view shared by mainstream libertarian icons like Harry Browne as well as prominent professors – that hardly qualifies as “railing against the Civil Rights Act” now does it?

Indeed, Paul has been trying to get back to the core principles of his message – implementing sound money policies to remedy the economic crisis and scaling back big government, while chastising the corporate media for obsessing about their contrived effort at race-baiting.

The attack dog establishment media went into overdrive in the days following the Rachel Maddow interview, using a clearly dishonest and fraudulent transcript put out by MSNBC which mischaracterized Paul’s response and made it appear is if he supported businesses not serving black people and wanted to repeal the entire Civil Rights Act, something we he explicitly never said.

The framing of the questions in the Daily Kos poll also reveal inherent bias. “Would you be more likely to vote for a candidate who supports and will work to improve the new health care reform law, or a candidate who will work to repeal it completely?” asks one question. Note the none too subtle implication that the candidate who supports health care reform is by default working to improve things, and in doing so taking positive action, whereas no reason or justification is suggested for the candidate who wants to repeal health care – implying that this has no benefits and is negative. Rand Paul is the candidate who wants to repeal Obamacare. This is a classic example of a loaded question and places the integrity of the whole survey under suspicion.

Critics have highlighted doubts about Research 2000’s polling methods in conducting surveys for the Daily Kos in the past. Indeed, while Rasmussen has been proven to have the least “house effect” on polls, aside from Zogby, Daily Kos/Research2000 has the second highest “house effect” out of all the polling agencies. “House effect” means how you ask the question affects the survey result, in other words, DailyKos/Research 2000 have the most biased and untrustworthy polls, whereas Rasmussen’s work is far more credible.

Earlier this year, Daily Kos/Research 2000 put out a poll which attempted to portray conservatives as crazy right-wingers who embrace dangerous ideas. Of course, the fact that CIA cheerleader and Kos founder Moulitsas was preparing material for a book about crazy right-wingers who embrace dangerous ideas had nothing to do with the impartiality of the poll results, we can be sure.

Given Moulitsas’ brazen agenda to smear any anti-establishment political figure as crazy, racist, or unelectable, it’s not surprising that the poll he commissioned produced wildly different results to the Rasmussen survey that took place just a week earlier. And even then, despite the ceaseless smear campaign, and despite the dubious Daily Kos poll – Rand Paul is still defeating his Democratic opponent.

Moulitsas is trying to undermine support for Rand Paul amongst the electorate who consider themselves to be Independents by creating a contrived consensus. But just as the pathetic “country club” smear faded away, the Civil Rights sideshow will melt into the background and voters will once again get to hear about what Rand Paul really stands for – taking on big government, enforcing the Constitution, and fixing the economic catastrophe that the establishment has dumped upon Americans from all colors and backgrounds.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
