Creepy ‘One Voice’ Occupy Protesters Heckle Ron Paul

Congressman responds by pointing out he’s been condemning the 1% for decades

A gaggle of ‘occupy’ sympathizers interrupted a question and answer session at a Ron Paul town hall gathering in Keene, New Hampshire Monday, proceeding to heckle the congressman in the form of a strange collective chant.

Taking hold of the microphone at the gathering, a man near the center of the audience stood up and declared “mic check”, before reeling off a pre-prepared speech, each line of which was collectively repeated by a group of so called 99 percenters.

“We are the 99 percent. We will be heard,” said the man. “There are criminals on Wall Street who walk free. There are protesters in jail. There is something wrong with this system.” he concluded.

The man then sat down and the commotion died down as Paul came back to his podium and asked the protesters “Do you feel better?”. The rest of the audience then broke into applause as the lead protester stood up and gestured to Paul, wagging his finger and throwing his arms out to his sides.

The Congressman responded to the protesters by stating that he has been part of the 99% for a long time and has consistently rallied against the bailouts handed to Wall Street special interests.

Watch the video:

It is not exactly clear whether the ‘occupy’ sympathizers were taking issue with Ron Paul’s campaign or simply using the event to get publicity. Some did appear to be shouting “Obama” during the exchange, however.

For these people to heckle Paul, a man who has never taken any donations from Wall Street banks, and endorse Obama, whose 2008 campaign was financed almost exclusively by the likes of Goldman Sachs displays a frightening lack of awareness.

The incident once again raises questions over who is attempting to direct sections of the protests and for what political agenda.

Furthermore, antagonizing Ron Paul’s supporters, a sizeable and hugely energetic grass roots political force, will get these particular protesters nowhere. In reality many of the protesters at occupy events across the nation are Paul supporters and advocate going after the real financial criminals in Washington and within the Federal Reserve.

Ron Paul’s full speech at Keene State College can be viewed below:

Meanwhile, in related news, Ron Paul continues to surge in the early voting states.

New polls out of New Hampshire and Iowa indicate that Paul is on course to challenge former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney for first place in the primaries.

A Suffolk/7News poll of likely New Hampshire Republican primary voters found Paul tied in second place at 14 percent with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Romney was placed in first place with 41 percent of the votes.

In the latest New Hampshire Journal poll, Paul remains a top three candidate with 16%, while Romney and Gingrich received 29% and 27% respectively.

“While others may rise and fall quickly, Congressman Paul’s support is steady and rising,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton.

In Iowa, a Iowa State University/Gazette/ KCRG poll found Paul within reach of first place at 20.4%, just over 4% behind Herman Cain and within the margin of error.

“These numbers are a confirmation of Congressman Paul’s principled message,” said Jesse Benton. “The American people are ready for real change in the way things are done in Washington, and Ron Paul is the only candidate who will fundamentally change the status quo, by offering serious cuts in spending, bringing our troops home, and restoring our economy to bring prosperity back to America.”

These latest polls dovetail with surveys published last week indicating that Paul was statistically tied for first place in Iowa and a strong second place in New Hampshire.

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?
