Gingrich Labels Ron Paul’s Entire Support Base As “People Who Want To Legalize Drugs”

Newt boils down Congressman’s message in snipe attack

Gingrich Labels Ron Pauls Entire Support Base As People Who Want To Legalize Drugs ronpaulronpaulronpaul.banner

The allegation is clear, Newt Gingrich’s latest assertion that Ron Paul’s “volunteer base is people who want to legalize drugs” is designed to create the impression that anyone who votes for Paul is at best socially irresponsible or at worst a crack addled junkie.

The former speaker of the House made the remarks in an interview with conservative commentator John McCaslin yesterday, also taking a swipe at Paul over his foreign policy outlook.

“This is a guy who basically says, if the United States were only nice, it wouldn’t have had 9/11.” Gingrich stated, boiling down an extremely complex issue into a meaningless snipe.

“He doesn’t want to blame the bad guys. … He dismisses the danger of Iranian nuclear weapon and seems to be indifferent to the idea that Israel could be wiped out.” Gingrich added.

Anyone who has spent more than five minutes researching Ron Paul’s stance on foreign policy, and 9/11 in particular, knows that Paul subscribes to the ‘blowback’ theory put forth by multiple experts, former US intelligence officials and validated by Osama Bin Laden himself, that the US is viewed as a legitimate target because it has engaged in military occupation and preemptive war in the middle east and beyond for decades.

Furthermore, the US has also aggressively supported the Israeli military machine and the suppression of the Palestinian people.

These complex issues spearhead Ron Paul’s outlook on foreign policy, while Gingrich and the rest of the GOP candidates espouse the ridiculously myopic notion that ‘terrorists hate our freedom so they attack us’.

As regards Israel being “wiped out” by Iran, Gingrich obviously hasn’t factored in the country’s arsenal of hundreds of nuclear weapons and the fact that US intelligence admits there is little evidence of an Iranian nuclear weapons program even existing – points that Ron Paul has consistently raised in the debates.

To suggest Paul is “indifferent” to this issue is farcical.

It is the drugs remark, however, that has irked many Paul supporters the most.

As a Libertarian and a staunch critic of the federal government’s so called “war on drugs”, Ron Paul has made it clear that as president he would open up dialogue on the issue of drug legalization as a means of effectively undermining the black market, overturning racial injustice, reducing ballooning prison populations and opening up possibilities where medical use of currently illegal drugs are concerned.

Gingrich is not stupid and knows full well that these are legitimate issues, yet he has chosen to turn to negative stereotyping in an attempt to stave off his plummeting poll numbers and dwindling support in the face of Ron Paul’s recent emergence as front runner in Iowa.

The truth is that Paul is leading in the polls precisely because he treats complex political and social issues in a fashion befitting them, rather than boiling everything down into sound bites and oversimplified rhetoric, purely for the purposes of political point scoring. Paul’s message of limited government and enhanced liberties also resonates with an American public sick and tired of the overreach of the Washington political establishment.

The Congressman has also organized a rock solid caucus campaign in the early voting states.

In visits to Iowa this week, Paul has drawn large numbers of diverse voters, young and old. A recent CNN / ORC poll highlighted the fact that Paul is the only GOP candidate that appeals to voters across the political spectrum.

In a direct head to head with Obama, Paul fared significantly better than all of his GOP rivals in a wide and diverse range of population categories, including males; persons ages 18 to 34; persons under 50 years of age; persons earning less than $50k per year; persons who have attended college; crossover Democrats; self-identified liberals; self-described moderates; residents of the Northeast and Midwest geographic regions; and those residing in urban areas.

According to the poll, Paul attracts more independents than Obama by 48 to 47 percent. The Congressman also betters Obama 51 to 46 percent among white voters and betters the incumbent president 52 to 44 percent among voters residing in rural areas.

Paul also betters all the other GOP competitors against Obama where non-white voters are concerned, attracting the support of one in four non-white adults.

Yet, if Newt Gingrich is to be believed, the vast majority of these people are concerned not with the state of the nation, but purely with what drugs they would be able to get their hands on under a Paul presidency.

According to Newt Gingrich, Paul’s support base, such as those pictured here at events in Iowa this week, are purely concerned with legalizing narcotics.

Paul’s principles are steadfast and, unlike Gingrich, his message is unfaltering.

The Congressman has exposed Gingrich’s “serial hypocrisy”over the past two months in ad spots, and drawn on the fact that Gingrich effectively used his position as House Speaker to line his coffers with lobbyist money.

Gingrich’s hypocrisy seems to know no bounds, given that last week he was urging candidates not to negatively attack each other and this week he is doing just that.

In response to Gingrich’s attack on his supporters, Paul reiterated the former Speaker’s flip flopping nature in an interview with CBS.

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?
