Ron Paul 2012: Congressman Drops Biggest Hint Yet That Presidential Campaign Is Likely 131210ronpaul

Texas Congressman Ron Paul, an icon for lovers of liberty in America and everywhere else in the world, has dropped perhaps the biggest hint yet that he is more than likely to take on a presidential run in 2012, following the success his 2008 campaign.

“I’ve been as up front as I can on this because there’s no doubt I’ve thought about it, because people make me think about it.” Paul told Libertarian radio host Lew Rockwell yesterday.

“I do feel a personal obligation to so many who have placed a fair amount of trust in me to continue this fight.” Paul said.

“So it is a possibility, as it always has been, but its also a major major decision on my part for personal reasons, for political reasons, and it just is very tedious.” the Congressman added.

Rumours of a presidential run have been bolstered by the fact that the Congressman is embarking on several speaking appearances this month, alongside other potential Republican candidates such as Newt Gingrich, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

Paul is heading off on a tour of three cities in Iowa today, as part of a “Presidential Lecture series”.

“I’m going to make these trips, and I was very much upfront on that, it was not an announcement, but I was going to do more traveling, I asked if I could have help in traveling with a private plane, which makes it much more effective. I can get more places, and it seems that that was well received, we raised a significant amount of dollars that will help.” the Congressman commented.

“I will be going on Monday, I can make three major cities in Iowa all in one day and still get back to Washington, I mean the efficiency of this is unbelievable.” he said, quipping that fulfilling his tight schedule depends on “staying out of the groping hands of the TSA”.

After today’s appearances, Paul will head back to Iowa later in the month for more scheduled events.

Iowa has traditionally been a testing ground for potential presidential candidates in recent decades. Gingrich, and Pawlenty, as well as former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum, former Louisiana governor Buddy Roemer and Tea Party favourite Herman Cain will all be appearing in Iowa this week. Donald Trump, who recently angered Ron Paul supporters by suggesting the Congressman had no chance of getting elected, is also scheduled to visit the state this week to gauge support for a potential run.

Paul is also planning a trip to New Hampshire, where he will appear as the guest speaker for the newly formed Dover Republican Committee.

“Obviously that has some implications,” Paul noted, adding “maybe when I’ve finished all those trips I will feel better about it and will feel energized enough to take it on myself again to make the decision.”

The Congressman also noted that the recent money bomb that raised over $700,000 was “in a way a way of testing the waters for testing the waters” of a 2012 campaign.

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?
