Paul Campaign Targets Liberal Santorum As Iowa Battle Begins  57660894 013621222 1

The Ron Paul 2012 campaign is hard at work in Iowa today, encouraging voters to turn out in the nation’s first presidential caucus.

Reacting to the late surge of former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum over the past 24 hours, the Paul campaign has sought to further educate voters on what Santorum really stands for.

In Press releases and email shots, the Paul campaign has highlighted that Santorum is a very liberal candidate with a voting record that endorses big government, foreign aid and pre emptive war.

The Paul campaign is pushing the fact that Santorum endorsed Arlen Specter, who became the key Senate vote to pass Obamacare in 2010.

Santorum’s support for Specter in 2004 proved crucial in the primary, in which Specter defeated (Pat) Toomey with just 50.8 percent of the vote.

Specter then backed Obama’s healthcare program, providing the swing vote to pass the legislation in the Senate. Specter also continued to push for fierce gun control during his years in the Senate.

Indeed, as the Paul campaign has pointed out via a press release from Dudley Brown, Executive Director of the National Association for Gun Rights, Santorum has a long history of supporting gun control.

“In the 90s, he voted to support the Lautenberg Gun Ban, which stripped law-abiding gun owners of their Second Amendment rights for life, simply because they spanked their children or did nothing more than grab a spouses wrist.” writes Brown.

“He voted for a bill in 1999 disguised as an attempt to increase penalties on drug traffickers with guns… but it also included a provision to require federal background checks at gun shows.”

“And then he voted with gun-controlling Democrats Dianne Fienstein and Frank Lautenberg to mandate locks on handguns in 2005.” the press release continues.

Out on the campaign trail, both Ron Paul and Rand Paul have been addressing Santorum’s record in an effort to enlighten voters on the issues he stands for.

When asked about Santorum during In an interview with CNN, Ron Paul asserted “He is very liberal, have you looked at his record?”

“He spends too much money. He wasn’t leading the charge to slash the budget and vote against big governemnt.” Paul added.

Also present during the interview was Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who noted that Santorum “voted to double the size of the department of education.”

“He voted to expand medicare and add free drugs for senior citizens, and he’s voted for foreign aid, those are not conservative principles.” the Senator added.

Watch the full interview below:

Rand Paul also appeared on the Jan Mickelson radio show Monday and expanded on Santorum’s support for big government.

“…he was a big supporter of Medicare Part D, the expansion of Medicare, a big supporter of No Child Left Behind… So I call him a big government moderate and I think conservatives need to be wary before thinking Santorum can be their champion.”

Paul also spoke of Santorum’s “trigger happy” foreign policy.

“Ron Paul does not want [Iran] to have a nuclear weapon, but the question is do you want someone who’s trigger happy to be your commander in chief?,” Paul said.

Santorum is “a little over-eager to drop bombs,” The Senator added.

Santorum was a staunch supporter of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, and has continually endorsed the War on Terror, sharing the views of neoconservatives and the Bush doctrine in regards to foreign policy.

“He’s also someone who never served in the military.” Paul continued, noting “Ron Paul served in the military, will use force against our enemies if it’s required and if Congress approves of it, but I’m a little concerned about someone who didn’t serve in the military like Santorum, who’s a little over-eager to bomb countries because I don’t think he’s maturely thinking through the process and the consequences of war.”

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.

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?
