Celente Slams “Cartoon News Network” GOP Debate

“It’s the presidential reality show”

Trends forecaster and social commentator Gerald Celente has slammed this week’s GOP presidential debate hosted by CNN as a “disgraceful” indication of the decline of America.

Monday’s debate in New Hampshire was characterized by softball questions and discussions of non issues, culminating in the hosts asking each member of the GOP field to name their favourite style of pizza.

Other questions included “iPhone or Blackberry?”, “Pepsi or Coca”, “Dancing with the Stars or American Idol?” and “Spicy or mild?”

“It’s disgraceful, CNN is the ‘Cartoon News Network’. Only somebody with a child’s mind would ask such mindless questions.” Celente told RT in a riveting interview yesterday.

“It’s the presidential reality show. We just saw it live.” Celente added.

“To ask such childish questions at a time when I get letters everyday from people who are losing everything. People that have had jobs for 35 years have no work at all, they’re losing their homes, our soldiers are getting killed, the wars are draining the Treasury, and a little clown asks ‘what do you like – deep dish or thin crust? Leno or Conan? Come on.” Celente said.

“America has gone from Sinatra to Snooki stupid. It’s really indicative of where the country is heading – that is the importance of last night’s debate.”

The CEO of Trends Research Institute added a caveat, naming Congressman Ron Paul as the only person involved with any credibility whatsoever.

“He is the only one talking about bringing home the troops, about legalizing marijuana, about ending these wars on terror, on drugs and other kinds of wars.” Celente said. “None of these candidates, again with the exception of Paul, is indistinguishable from the other.”

Watch the interview:

While Ron Paul’s performance in the debate was once again what his followers have come to expect, another sterling example of holding firm to his anti-big government, anti-war, libertarian principles, the mainstream media touted Paul as a “loser”, instead claiming that Michelle Bachman, who voted FOR the PATRIOT Act whilst simultaneously claiming to be at the center of the Tea Party movement, was the stand out candidate.

Be it far from we here at Prisonplanet to extol the virtues of one Bill Maher, but he was one of the only commentators to appear on CNN and tell it like it is.

“She did well by what standard? Because she’s able to speak and complete sentences?” Maher told Anderson Cooper. “The standards are so low, lets be honest, we’re judging her against Sarah Palin.” he added.

The HBO host then added that if he had to vote for any of the candidates it would be Ron Paul.

“I would vote for Ron Paul if I had to pick,” Maher said. “I mean Ron Paul is at least not a panderer. He’s sincere. He’s got the right ideas about getting our troops home.”

“And, you know, I like Ron Paul. I think he’s cut from a different cloth than the rest of those people, who are, of course, selling their souls to the corporate interests who back them, and who have just horrible, society-killing ideas about America and either don’t know what’s real or don’t care,” he added.

Like it or not, Maher’s analysis is important because it reveals how Ron Paul’s stance on real issues bridges the false left right paradigm.

At the same time as Maher was praising Paul, so too was Glenn Beck. Both said virtually the same thing about Paul, highlighting the fact that Ron Paul is the only Republican candidate who stands any chance against Obama in the 2012 election, precisely because his rejection of interventionist foreign policy, his avocation of sound monetary policy and his concern for the protection of civil liberties resonates with many Americans of either political persuasion.

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?
