Rand Paul Maintains Lead In Kentucky Despite Continued Smears

Rand Paul Maintains Lead In Kentucky Despite Continued Smears  191010rand2

Rolling Stone writer now suggests Paul involved with racist college newsletters

Rand Paul has maintained his lead in the race for the Kentucky Senate seat over political rival Jack Conway, despite Conway’s attempts to smear him in campaign ads and corporate media hit pieces that continue to promulgate rumours and outright lies about the libertarian candidate.

A new Mason-Dixon poll, conducted earlier this week following the release of Conway’s widely criticized ad, finds that Paul has held onto a five point lead, 48-43, over Conway.

This lead is all the more impressive given that registered Democrats outnumber Republicans in Kentucky by 1.62 million to 1.07 million.

The poll reveals that Paul has so far attracted the support of nearly one-fourth of Democrats.

The race remains close, however, given that 9% of Kentucky voters declared themselves to still be undecided.

With less than two weeks until polling day, the mainstream media has amplified it’s attacks on the anti-establishment candidate.

Today, Rolling Stone writer Matt Taibbi has penned a piece that on the surface suggests Paul was involved with individuals during his college years that published articles in newsletters containing racist comments and a joke “about a chimpanzee giving birth to a ‘negroid’ baby”.

Taibbi clearly wasn’t concerned that the truth gets in the way of such very serious but utterly baseless allegations. He even admits towards the end of the piece, “Paul’s name isn’t on any of these articles”.

Nevertheless, given the severity of these accusations, Rand Paul may be forced into once again having to publicly deny them.

Such tired accusations mirror exactly those leveled against Rand Paul’s father, Ron Paul, during his presidential campaign in 2007 and 2008 as the media attempted to tie him to right wing newsletters that in reality he had no connection to whatsoever.

Not able to verify any of the ridiculous accusations made against Rand Paul, Taibbi’s extremely professional journalistic conclusion is that in his esteemed opinion the Kentucky candidate “just seems like an overgrown adolescent and a dick.”

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black! Earlier within the same piece Taibbi states that personally he would have no problem mocking Christians anyway, before then resorting to pathetic name calling as his story collapses into worthless smear and conjecture.

Jack Conway has refused to backtrack on the claims made in his campaign ads, despite widespread condemnation from political analysts and his own Democratic colleagues, even those based in Kentucky who feel that the affair could directly harm their own chances on election day.

At a press conference held yesterday in Bowling Green, Rand Paul’s wife expressed her shock at the personal attacks that have been leveled at her husband, calling them “a desperate, shameful attack on our family.”

“I am truly shocked by Conway’s ads questioning Rand’s character and his faith based on nothing more than anonymous accusations from nearly three decades ago,” Kelley Paul said, adding “Rand would never try to smear an opponent with baseless, anonymous gossip from their teenage years.”

“Jack Conway has a family too, and while I’m sure he isn’t thinking about it right now, these personal attacks hurt people’s families,” she added, before Paul campaign manager Jesse Benton addressed the media, describing the smear attacks as “false or distorted beyond recognition gossip and hearsay”.

Watch videos of the press conference:

Rand Paul himself today noted that he will make a decision tomorrow on whether to boycott the final debate scheduled between himself and Conway.

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 happening 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".

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 IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. Or if you need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and 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 and other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) 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?
