Kucinich would beat Palin, Trump in hypothetical races: Poll

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) would defeat Sarah Palin and Donald Trump in hypothetical presidential match-ups, according to a new Public Policy Polling survey.

The outspoken anti-war liberal would rout Palin by 43 to 36 percent, and beat Trump 40 to 36 percent, the Democratic-affiliated polling firm found Tuesday. The rest were undecided, in part because they didn’t know much about Kucinich.

The results are a testament to Palin and Trump’s unpopularity with the general public, and indicate just how difficult it would be for the two Republicans to win a general election.

Trump announced Monday that he will not run for president in 2012. Palin has not made her intentions clear, but signs suggest that she will also bow out of the race.

The PPP poll surveyed 814 American voters between May 5-8 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.

    Not quite sure what the point of this exercise is.
    I’d probably vote for either Palin or Trump over Kucinich myself, on the basis of what we’ve been seeing of the general populace’s responses to what the Publicans have been doing since their “rout” of the Dem’s last fall.
    Just as many people with 3-digit IQs were suggesting in the run-up to that elections, and just after the results were announced, over half the people who voted for the Publicans had no clue what they were actually voting for — not because of any incapacity on their parts, but because the Publicans, aided and abetted by the corporate mass media, were lying thru their teeth about what they would actually do if elected.
    The Publicans claimed a mandate for cutting taxes (especially on the rich and the corporations) and for radically reducing the size, scope and cost of government — but they never admitted what that would necessarily entail (if done their way).
    Now that they’ve finally had to show their cards (demolishing Medicare, decimating Social Security, cutting programs almost everyone supports, increasing the deficit, scapegoating gov’t employees and unions — both public and private sector), and have made it clear they have neither the ability nor the intent to do anything about unemployment, the 70+% of Americans who aren’t politically insane are, of course, completely horrified.
    The Publicans are doing a far better job of discrediting themselves, the tea-party “movement,” and the current forms of “conservative” “thought” than even the most ardent of Democrats could ever have done — if we even had any “ardent” Democrats left to do so (since it’s pretty undeniable now that Obama and almost all the major Congresscritters are to the right of even the DLC / Publican-lite crew).
    If even 8 years of miserable failure under GWB wasn’t enough to get Jane and Jo Sixpak to understand reality, maybe a year or two of Sarah! (before she inevitably “went rogue” and quit) might finally do the trick.

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?
