Ron Paul Warming To Potential VP Slot? morgan paul 3.1.12

Congressman Ron Paul appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight Thursday and dropped a significant hint that he would consider accepting a spot on the 2012 GOP ticket if it was offered to him.

Paul has vowed to stay in the GOP nomination race going into the national convention, and he still believes he can win it. However, there has been increasing talk of Paul potentially being on the ticket, regardless of whether he secures the nomination or not.

When asked by Morgan whether he would take a position in a Mitt Romney administration if it was offered to him, the Congressman shot back:

“I’ll have to wait and see. Maybe I’ll have to ask him if he wants to help me when I get in.”

Morgan conceded that he was hasty to discount Paul’s chances of winning, explaining that he framed the question in that way because he believes the Republican party would “be mad” not to use Paul in some form, given his popularity.

“In every state I always win among young people aged 18-30.” Paul pointed out. “If they are thinking about the future or even the Fall election, young people are very very important, and I am the one person who can take young people away from Obama.”

Paul also said that he found it encouraging when comparing his popularity against the president. “We do better than the rest of them.” the Congressman said.

Paul supporters have mixed feelings about the possibility of the Congressman running under someone like Mitt Romney, given that it is likely Paul would have to make concessions on policies he has consistently stood by for decades.

Some supporters believe that such an eventuality would taint Paul’s legacy as the ultimate anti-establishment politician and obstruct the path those who are set to follow in his footsteps. Others believe any such offer to Paul would be part of an establishment attempt to neutralize his influence.

Nevertheless, with the chances of a brokered convention being higher than in previous years, and the likelihood that Paul will have a significant amount of delegates at the RNC, the eventuality is far from inconceivable.

During the Piers Morgan interview, Paul also once again addressed the conspiracy theory that he and Romney were already working together.

“There is a theory going around,” Morgan said, “that you’re going a bit easy on Mitt Romney. And there are all sorts of potential reasons for that I won’t bore you with, but is it true? I mean, are you and Mitt Romney in bed together?”

“No,” said Paul. “I mean, one of our ads on right now challenges him for being, you know, a flip-flopper. I think you guys are desperate for news if that’s the big news, because there’s nothing to it.”

“Just because you talk to somebody doesn’t mean you have to have a deal going.” he continued.

“I would say that politicians pretty much come together sort of like a family,” he added. “You know the old saying, that you can fight with your siblings, but don’t let the neighbors come in.” the Congressman added.

Paul also declined to be drawn on questions from Morgan on Rick Santorum’s recent gaffes and controversial statements.

Paul also defended his campaign ad ‘Three of a Kind’, which Morgan described as being “down and dirty” and “like a promo for Mad Max.”

“I think it’s legitimate, if somebody is all over the place and they’re changing their views, and they voted for big government, and the other three candidates have.” Paul stated.

    Ridiculous, he gave a polite answer but he’s not warming to it, he’s politically incompatible with Romney, and the people that follow him won’t vote for Romney just because he’s the VP.

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?
