A new poll conducted by NBC and the Wall Street Journal suggests that should Congressman Ron Paul eventually decide to run as a third party candidate, he could completely transform the 2012 election and pose an even greater threat to the establishment than Ross Perot’s 1992 campaign.

“Paul would earn the support of 18 percent of voters in a three-way race with President Obama and Mitt Romney, according to the poll, with Romney earning 32 percent and Obama receiving 44,” reports The Hill.

Paul’s number beats that of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who would garner 13 percent of the vote if he ran as a third party candidate.

Such figures are already impressive given the fact that Paul has not even begun to harness the momentum that a third party bid could generate.

Imagine a Jesse Ventura/Ron Paul third party ticket going head to head with Mitt Romney and Barack Obama in live televised prime time national debates. Paul and Ventura would verbally crucify establishment candidates Romney and Obama, posing an even greater threat to Washington’s two-party political monopoly than Ross Perot’s 1992 campaign.

Running as an Independent against George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, Perot eventually received 18.9% of the vote, but at one stage he was the clear frontrunner with 39% of the vote.

Even former Republican presidential contender John McCain thinks that a new third party will emerge to play a pivotal role in future elections, noting that a third of newly registered voters in his home state of Arizona are Independents.

“Unless both parties change, then I think that it’s an inevitability. We aren’t doing anything for the people,” McCain told the the Reuters Washington Summit, adding that the new party could be called the “Fed-Up-Party,” referring to Americans’ disillusionment with both Republicans and Democrats.

The question of whether or not Ron Paul will seek the Libertarian nomination if he fails to win the Republican primaries has been a hot topic of recent political debate.

Libertarian Party leaders have responded enthusiastically to the idea of Paul running as a third party candidate under their banner. “Absolutely, that would be fabulous,” Jim Lesczynski, media relations director for the Manhattan Libertarian Party, recently told ABC News.

Paul himself has been more guarded about the idea, largely dismissing the prospect of switching parties, but that’s to be expected so long as he remains in a strong position in the Republican race.

Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura has indicated he will be willing to take on the challenge of running as a strong third party candidate, issuing a ‘come and get me’ plea to the Libertarian Party on two separate occasions during appearance on the Alex Jones Show.

Ventura has also said he would seriously consider being Congressman Ron Paul’s Vice President pick if Paul were to be victorious in the Republican primaries.

The prospect of Ron Paul, backed up by Jesse Ventura, fronting a third party challenge to the likes of Romney and Obama is exciting because it would give Paul an even greater chance of success of reaching millions more people with the message of liberty than his current Republican platform. Since the Libertarian Party has ballot access in all 50 states, Congressman Paul could not be excluded from presidential debates.

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 happening 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".

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 IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box 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 #altnews 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?
