Rand Paul Promises To Challenge GOP Establishment

Both Democrats and Republicans have proved themselves to be untrustworthy, Senator tells CNN, as he indicates intention to build a Tea Party caucus

On the same day that he swept to victory in the Kentucky Senate race, Rand Paul immediately contradicted doubters who warned that he would compromise and begin to support neo-con political policies by promising to challenge the GOP establishment while also working to cut the bloated US defense budget.

During an election day interview with CNN, Paul said that he would work to change “the whole government” because “both Democrats and Republicans have shown themselves to be untrustworthy,” calling for a constitutional amendment to balance the budget and a sunset of “all regulations” passed by unelected bureaucrats unless they are approved by Congress.

Contradicting criticism that Paul would seek to prolong and expand US military operations abroad and that he was just another “neo-con,” the Senator to be promised to look at not just cutting the domestic budget, but also cutting waste in the military budget, which has ballooned under Obama as he continues the Bush-era occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq, while launching new drone attacks in Pakistan and Yemen.

“I do believe national defense is the most important thing the federal government does, but I do think there is waste in the military budget, and I will be one of those who will reach across the aisle to the Democrats and say ‘we will tackle waste throughout the length and breadth of the budget,” said Paul.

As we repeatedly highlighted, Paul’s neo-con rhetoric on Israel, Afghanistan and other geopolitical issues was just him playing politics in order to secure victory over Democrat Jack Conway. As soon as Paul knew he was in the clear and destined to be victorious, he immediately made it clear that expanding unconstitutional wars would not characterize his tenure as Senator.

When the host attempted to question Paul’s commitment to his values by pointing out that he embraced the support of establishment Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell, Paul said that he would challenge the GOP on a day to day basis.

Statists who helped to contrive smear after smear in an effort to derail Paul’s campaign were noticeably crestfallen when he was confirmed as the winner in Kentucky. MSNBC talking heads, including Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow, ludicrously claimed that Paul’s commitment to a balanced budget would cause a “worldwide depression,” lead to global anarchy and the collapse of governments around the planet.

Given Paul’s commitment to offering an alternative to the devastation wrought by decades of Democrat and Republican deal-making, it’s vital that Rand Paul forms a caucus of like-minded lawmakers who will pursue a plethora of neglected issues that are imperative if America is to be saved from total economic and political collapse.

Chief amongst them, ending NAFTA and GATT, reducing the trade deficit, pushing through massive tax cuts, ending Obamacare, reversals of gun control laws, securing the border, and a workable plan for stabilizing the dollar.

Indeed, during an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Paul already indicated that he will start a Tea Party caucus. We as observers need to make sure that it includes the right people and embraces the right issues. This needs to be more than a Tea Party caucus, it needs to be a save the Republic caucus. We cannot afford to have a Newt Gingrich lead the whole thing down the rabbit hole as happened in 1994.

We firmly believe that Paul’s political capital needs to be spent by building a powerful alliance of limited government proponents, which of course would be headed up by Rand himself along with his father, Congressman Ron Paul.

Now that the Tea Party has got its foot in the door of Washington, its most successful leaders need to make it clear that the anti-big government movement will not be compromised by the establishment GOP, and will not be hijacked by Republican insiders.

Rand Paul’s promise that we will take on the establishment GOP and cut military spending is the first salvo in a war of political attrition that will define whether the Tea Party movement is infiltrated and deflated, or whether it goes on to become a truly dominant force for driving peace and prosperity in America.

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.

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?
