Gary Johnson

Gary Johnson

Gary Johnson is the Libertarian candidate running for president and he just made a major mistake, but will it totally discredit him?

When Gary Johnson joined the panel on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, the candidate thought this might be a great opportunity to be seen and heard by the American people.

Well, he was seen and heard, but for all the wrong reasons.

Gary Johnson made a big mistake at the wrong time. Watch the video below as Gary doesn’t know the answer to a very basic questions.

If you don’t know, Aleppo is the city in Syria that has seen some of the worst violence of the Syrian civil war.

The carnage in Aleppo is atrocious and it is the flash point for the war in Syria.

Dozens of images are surfacing daily on Twitter and other sites that show children dying and some being burnt, allegedly by Russian napalm.

When Gary Johnson was asked about Aleppo and didn’t have a clue what it was, he isn’t alone.

Many Americans have no idea that Aleppo is a city in Syria that has seen more death and destruction than we could comprehend. Children are being brutally killed and wounded and Obama and America sits indifferent.

One mistake by Gary won’t eliminate him. After everything that Trump has said, it is doubtful people will be talking about this next week.

Gary not knowing Aleppo hints that he is not serious about winning the presidency and isn’t putting in the work to win, but the real tragedy is what is happening in Syria and the fact that even Americans running for president don’t understand what is going on.

What do you think about a presidential candidate that is clueless about Aleppo? Let us know in the comments below.

New polls coming out this week show the race tightening and they are suggesting that Donald Trump can actually win the presidency.

Last year at this time, Donald was in a war with Megyn Kelly and nobody thought that he would make it to the next debate.

The next debate came and went and so did 15 other GOP candidates that wanted to be the nominee of the party. Trump beat them all and proved all the pundits and talking heads wrong.

Along the way Donald, according to the liberal media, has called to ban a religion, insulted gold star parents and even told 2nd amendment supporters to kill Hillary.

Despite all of the bad press, the foot-in-mouth disease and running his first campaign, he is now only down two points in a new Zogby poll. Only down two points after all of that is amazing.

So amazing, that it should start getting the complacent people on the left to start thinking they could lose this thing.

The poll shows Clinton with 38%, Trump with 36%, Gary Johnson with 8% and Jill Stein with 5%. The poll also had 13% that were undecided.

The two-point lead is well within the margin of error and in a four person race, as this is shaping up to be, Trump does much better in the polls.

The polls that just ask Clinton or Trump are not a true representation of what is going on in politics this year. People are fed up with Hillary and the DNC and they are moving towards Gary Johnson and Jill Stein.

Some Republicans that are ashamed and angry their party nominated Donald are switching to Gary or not voting.

People are just learning about Gary and Jill and if they can make the debates, the numbers could shift wildly, and it could all help Trump.

Trump is the most conservative candidate in the field. Gary is slightly left of Trump with the main difference is Donald is the only pro-life candidate. That is a big decider for a lot of voters.

Democrats that were part of the Bernie Revolution and supported Hillary are now learning about the Green Party and they are starting to gravitate towards Jill Stein.

None of the polls take into account the debates, more email releases, or tax return releases. There is still a lot in play right now and after the first debate, we will have a much better picture of what will happen in November.

We can’t wait for Trump and Hillary to debate, but now we are expecting a slight change in the show. Debate planners are now planning to add a third podium.

Donald Trump and Hillary are not the two most popular candidates in history, actually quite the opposite, so it is expected that a third party candidate will qualify for the debates.

Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate and two term Republican governor of New Mexico is polling in some places around the country in double digits.

Gary will need to have over 15% in at least five national polls before the first debate kicks off September 28th. If he can reach that 15% mark, then he will make it to the stage.

The Commission on Presidential Debates is trying to make sure that venues and potential moderators are not surprised if Gary makes it to the stage.

Since his own party pushed Bernie Sanders out of the race and the establishment Republicans loathes Donald Trump, there are a lot of Republicans and Democrats that are looking for other options.

Gary Johnson is likely to some attention this year and CNN has already given the Libertarian Party a prime time Town Hall. Something they did not do in 2008 or 2012.

Gary has a real chance this year and he is starting to rise in the polls. Right now the third party candidate who is on the ballot in all 50 states is polling around 9%.

He has some ground to make up over the next month, but as more undecided voters start looking away from the GOP and the Democratic Party, then Johnson could see a steady rise leading up to the debates.

The Libertarian Party has stances that appeal to both Republicans and Democrats and there is a great chance that we will see Gary Johnson on the debate stages this fall.

Want to know more about Gary Johnson, here he is talking about Black Lives Matter on the CNN Town Hall.

Do you think that Gary Johnson will be invited to participate in the debates?

Trump Numbers

Last week Donald Trump was officially nominated by the Republican Party to become president and the entire Trump team delivered a great convention and the polls prove it.

Aside from the Ted Cruz scene and the Melania speech controversy, the convention went off without a hitch and even the protesters were calm compared to other ones we have seen this year.

Donald delivered a good speech, not great, but good enough and his four children that spoke were fantastic character witnesses. Ivanka was the shining star, and even Trump’s most ardent haters respect the poise and character of Donald’s oldest daughter.

In a CNN/ORC Poll released this morning has Donald Trump beating Hillary Clinton 44% to 39% with Gary Johnson and Jill Stein getting 9% and 3% respectively.

When looking at a two-way race, it is closer, 48% to 45% with Trump in the lead.

What do these numbers tell us? They say two things.

1. It is clear that Trump still has the potential to gain new voters that didn’t consider him until the convention.

2. It is also clear that Bernie Sanders’ voters are not all going to Clinton, but most are shifting to Gary Johnson or Jill Stein.

The convention added a big boost for Donald Trump and has taken a 5-point lead over Hillary and gained six points.

The question now is can Hillary get a boost from her convention?

With the new DNC email scandal and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz resigning as head of the party, Hillary may not get the boost she needs. Especially since she just hired the corrupt party leader that was forced to resign. That doesn’t show good leadership.

The Democrats are in a panic, because if Bernie’s fans go to Gary Johnson, there will be no stopping Trump.

What do you think, is Trump really going to win this election? Let us know in the comments below.

Jeb Bush

Just 13 months ago, Jeb Bush was leading the polls for the GOP nomination for president. That was before Donald Trump went on the attack.

Donald came and said he was going to build a wall, and the rest is history. Trump won the nomination and Jeb is breaking his silence after a crushing defeat.

Jeb Bush didn’t even finish in the top five of the GOP candidates and has not done any press since Donald Trump stopped another Bush from becoming president, until now.

Jeb Bush decided to go on camera with MSNBC, of all media outlets, to discuss he feelings about Donald Trump.

The son and brother of a president said that he would not be voting for Donald Trump and he can’t vote for Hillary. He said he would feel “sad” if Hillary became the president this fall, but he would also be “worried” if Trump won.

Who is left for him to vote for? Gary Johnson? Doubtful, it looks like Bush is going to stay home in November. He isn’t going to even vote. No wonder he didn’t make it out of the primaries.

Jeb Bush says that Trump won’t build the wall and Mexico isn’t going to pay for it. He said that Muslims won’t be banned and all of Trump’s fans are going to “feel betrayed”.

Bush is sounding like a bitter man right now. This time last year he was leading the polls for the nomination and now he, on the most liberal network on cable news, is talking about how bad Trump is and how the former Florida governor won’t even vote. Who is he trying to win over?

Jeb wouldn’t have broken his silence now if he didn’t have a plan, but what is it? He doesn’t plan on going to the GOP convention, he doesn’t plan on endorsing Trump and he doesn’t plan on voting in November. What are he and the establishment up to?

Watch the interview for yourself and decide if Jeb Bush is acting like a crybaby or if he has some master plan to take down Trump somehow.

Is Jeb being a crybaby or is this all part of his master plan? Do you think that Trump will be able to build the wall? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Normally when a primary season is over, the other candidates rally their support for the nominee, but not this year.

Obviously Trump has not had the support of all 16 of his competitors, but he is getting some support. Hillary on the other hand, really only had one competitor and he has yet to throw his weight behind the former secretary of state.

In fact, Bernie has said that he will do his best to stop Trump, but right now that doesn’t mean joining sides with Hillary.

The Hillary camp is worried. Not only did the Democrats get seven million less votes this primary season than in 2008, this primary has been much more divided.

Bloomberg recently released a poll that detailed what camp the Bernie voters are gravitating towards.

Right now, only 55% of Bernie supporters say they will vote for Hillary.

22% say they are going to go for Trump instead of the Democratic nominee.

Surprisingly, 18% say they are going to vote for the Libertarian candidate, Gary Johnson.

One person who participated in the poll and was a fierce Bernie Supporter had this to say about Hillary Clinton.

“She’s a corporate candidate. I don’t vote for corporate candidates. I don’t do the lesser of two evils.”

The Clinton camp is really worried. Especially because Trump is closer in the polls than what the national average is showing.

Currently Hillary has an 11-point lead nationally, but in some of the battleground states like Ohio and Florida, the spread is much closer.

If Hillary loses Ohio and Florida to Trump, it could give him enough to win.

Despite her “huge” lead she is in trouble and the Democrats know it. They want to get Bernie on board behind Hillary, but he has yet to endorse her, and his most loyal fans are saying they are going to “crash” the convention.

The threats are so numerous surrounding the convention, that the Democratic Party is adopting Trump’s idea and they are building a wall around the meeting for July to keep the riffraff out.

Unless Hillary can find a way to start really appealing to the Bernie fans, she may have a much harder time winning this election than she thinks.

What do you think? Should Bernie support Hillary and get his follower to fall in line? Let us know in the comments below.

On top of Gary Johnson seeking another spot as the Libertarian’s presidential candidate, rogue anti-virus mogul, John McAfee has thrown his hat into the ring.

Oh, and according to McAfee, Morgan Freeman plans to do the same– with Vin Diesel as his running mate.


Here’s the tweet that started the rumor:

And to throw a wrench into Hillary’s plans, billionaire gun-grabber Michael Bloomberg has paid for a poll to test the waters on a 2016 run for president.

Bloomberg, who has floated the concept as running for as an independent in the past, is likely leveraging the threat to run as an independent to force Hillary to take an even stronger stance against guns.

With Bloomberg, McAfee, Johnson and a longshot possibility of Freeman/Diesel getting into the game, the race that has so far featured only one “rogue” candidate may turn into an anti-establishment free for all.

Former Governor of New Mexico Gary Johnson has been toying with running for president a second time after his 2012 showing of .99% of the vote as the Libertarian Party’s presidential nominee.

While not being able to break 1% of the vote seems terrible, for the Libertarian Party, it was the second best campaign in the history of the party.

In 1980, Ed Clark running with David Koch broke the 1% barrier by obtaining 1.07% of the vote.

The relative success of the Clark/Koch campaign was due to the funding available from David Koch of Koch Industries – one of the two Koch Brothers maligned by the left.

Johnson, who showed at the GOP debates in 2012, dropped from the Republican Party to run as a third party candidate – choosing to align himself with the Libertarian Party.

Johnson accepted presidential matching funds, which is frowned upon by libertarians, but still ended the campaign with nearly a quarter million in debt.

Unlike Republicans and Democrats, Libertarians pride themselves in fiscal responsibility so running a 10% deficit is not a strong indicator of competence for a Libertarian candidate.

For comparison, in 2012, Mitt Romney ended with $3 million in debt, .8% of his total funds raised. Barak Obama also ended his campaign with a .8% campaign deficit.

Johnson was over ten times more irresponsible with his funds than the major party candidates.

While the metric is not a fair comparison due to the rules of scale, Johnson does have a strong record of fiscal responsibility as New Mexico’s governor.

Johnson left his position with a balanced budget for the state, along with a budget surplus.

He also cut 1,200 government jobs and increased the state’s general reserve ten fold.

Several other candidates are seeking the Libertarian Party’s nomination, although Gary Johnson is positioned to be the clear winner.

Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson–who ran for President in 2012 and is flirting with the idea of another run in 2016–thinks parties are our problem.

Johnson, as a Republican, was Governor of New Mexico between 1994 and 2003. After losing the Republican primary for President in 2012, he switched to the Libertarian Party–and ran as their standard-bearer in the general election, which he lost, despite racking up one of the Libertarian Party’s strongest numbers in history.

But despite his party switching, Johnson makes it clear that parties are the problem–because they force candidates into positions where they have to appease different wings of the same party in order to progress.

“There are issues on which we do not agree, and those tend to be issues that have become litmus tests for Republicans,” Johnson explained. “It is essential that voters have the opportunity to see and hear a candidate who is not constrained by litmus tests.”

He was referring specifically to Rand Paul, the libertarian-leaning Republican who is running for President, but it’s a problem that runs deeper than that.

Generally speaking, because different factions in the GOP are opposed to each other, it’s usually the best-financed candidate who ultimately comes out ahead–not necessarily the one that most people support.

“If recent history is an indication,” Johnson explained, “the candidate who finally emerges [as the GOP’s nominee] will be the one the establishment wants and who has the most money. And watching the Republican National Committee limit participation in its own debates, that appears to be their plan once again. That leads to Jeb Bush.”

Johnson was, famously, only allowed in one debate in 2012, while running for the Republican ticket–after polling too low to gain an invitation to the rest. He did not debate either Gov. Mitt Romney or President Barack Obama in the general election, either.

Johnson has not yet announced whether or not he intends to run for President on the Libertarian Party ticket again in 2016.
