    Associated Press ^ | Jul. 27, 2018 6:47 PM EDT | Russell Contreras
    Former Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson is considering jumping into the race for the U.S. Senate in New Mexico, raising the profile of a race that Democrats seeking to capture the majority in Congress had seen as a safe seat. Johnson consultant Ron Nielson told The Associated Press on Friday that the former governor is “strongly considering” running if Libertarian candidate Aubrey Dunn quits the race as expected. “He is weighing it over right now,” Nielson said. “He doesn’t want to get into a race he can’t win.” […] During the presidential campaign, Johnson vowed to cut military spending,...
  • Vanity: Gary Johnson Speaking at CPAC? Huh?

    02/19/2018 6:25:16 AM PST · by rightwingintelligentsia · 34 replies
    Failed Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson is scheduled to speak at CPAC this year. That's interesting, to say the least. What does everyone think of the rest of the line-up? Besides POTUS and the VP, it looks like a mixed bag of conservative regulars, RINOs, and Never Trumpers with a few more slightly edgier choices. Does anyone here attend CPAC any more? Would be interested in your thoughts and experiences.

    Washington Examiner ^ | Jan. 5, 2018
    Former Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson reacted angrily to President Trump's apparent abandonment of a campaign pledge to leave pot policy to the states, saying he hopes the pivot ends Trump's shot at re-election. Johnson, who served two terms as a Republican governor of New Mexico, said the Trump administration is "grossly underestimating the anger this will create." "I hope it dooms his re-election. Trump promised to leave marijuana to the states," Johnson told the Washington Examiner.

    Gary Johnson and Jill Stein still plan to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to hear Johnson v Commission on Presidential Debates, their case using federal anti-trust law to attack the exclusionary policy of the Commission on Presidential Debates. Their cert petition was originally due at the end of November, but the Court has granted an extension to file. The cert petition is now due December 27.
  • Clinton Brutality - the physical beating of a Lawyer and eyewitness to affair - Gary Johnson

    11/14/2017 9:46:31 PM PST · by doug from upland · 21 replies
    Here is the story of attorney Gary Johnson. He lived next door to Gennifer Flowers at the Quapaw Towers and had security camera tape of Bill Clinton entering Flowers' apartment on numerous occasions with his own key. That was at the time when Clinton was lying about the affair. Three thugs came in and took the tape. They then brutally beat him and left him for dead --- broken elbows, nasal cavity smashed in, collarbones broken, spleen and bladder ruptured. Had the tape surfaced while Clinton was denying Flowers, he would have been sent packing back to Arkansas.

    Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, the two-time Libertarian Party presidential candidate, says he’s lost faith in the electoral process and vowed never to run again. He will now focus all his efforts on legalizing marijuana. Govs. Johnson and Weld became the first ticket of any party to feature two governors since the 1948 presidential election and ended up receiving nearly 4.5 million votes nationally, far more than his 2012 popular vote total. While still not a viable electoral force, the 2016 presidential election marked the Libertarian Party’s most successful presidential run to date and the most successful third-party candidacy...

    On Friday, I almost assaulted a fan of my work. I was in the Philadelphia International Airport, and a man who recognized me from one of my appearances on a television news show approached. He thanked me for the investigative reporting I had done about Donald Trump before the election, expressed his outrage that the Republican nominee had won and then told me quite gruffly, “Get back to work.” Something about his arrogance struck me, so I asked, “Who did you vote for?” He replied, “Well, Stein, but—” I interrupted him and said, “You’re lucky it’s illegal for me to...

    Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson and his running mate Bill Weld have a master plan in place “to change history” and win the 2016 election. The pair maintain that quirky political circumstances, voting variables and polling inaccuracies could play in their favor. . . . This situation presents “a clear and realistic strategy” for the third party should the election end up being sent to the House of Representatives, as per established protocols, say the Libertarian gents.

    Young people and independents are helping Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump remain competitive with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in New Mexico, a new poll finds. Clinton led Trump five 5 percentage points, 45-40, heading into the final stretch of the campaign, according to the survey, which was conducted Monday. Support for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, New Mexico’s former governor, dropped in the new poll to 9 percent. The statewide survey of 1,899 likely voters was conducted by ZiaPoll. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.25 percent.

    I cannot hide my schadenfreude about the Election 2016 Libertarian ticket. Gary Johnson and William Weld should call themselves the LINO team. They are completely “Libertarian in Name Only.” Gary Johnson loves his open borders, and he has embraced Barack Obama's executive amnesty. What a joke! This guy flew off the handle when Guy Benson of called illegal aliens "illegal.” This harsh exchange is no fantasy. Check out the interview here. Gary Johnson is offended by the term "illegal immigrant." He insisted—twice—that  Benson refrain from using the term "illegal" to describe people whose presence in this country is...

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has pulled to within two points in a four-way matchup for New Hampshire, according to the latest Boston Globe/Suffolk University poll released on Wednesday. The two-point gap in the survey of 500 likely New Hampshire voters is well within the poll’s margin of error of 4.4 percent. Four presidential candidates registered support in the poll, with Democratic nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton at 44 percemt, Trump at 42 percent, Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson at 5 percent, and Green Party nominee Jill Stein at 1 percent.

    We’ll admit it up front: there’s not much redeeming social value in the story we’re about to present you. Let’s just call this political entertainment of the pugilistic sort between two people who clearly have little use for each other. Over the course of a longish segment on today’s With All Due Respect, Trump surrogate Boris Epshteyn and Gary Johnson backer Liz Mair engaged in a running battle. The barbs came fast and furious, with, among other things: Mair—playing the sexism card—ripping Epshteyn for interrupting her; Boris noting Mair’s fascination with the word “butt” and taunting her over not having...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Still disloyal after all these years . . . Eight years after being a putative aide to Sarah Palin, Nicolle Wallace can’t stop trashing the woman she supposedly worked for. On today’s Morning Joe, Wallace suggested that if ignorance of foreign policy were an asset, “Sarah Palin would be Vice-President of the United States.” Wallace’s unworthy remark came in the context of a discussion of Libertarian president candidate Gary Johnson’s claim that his own ignorance of foreign policy was an asset since it makes him less likely to get involved in foreign wars.

    Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson on Tuesday defended his lack of knowledge of world affairs, suggesting on MSNBC that foreign policy expertise, or even an understanding of where international leaders are from, is what leads to military conflict. “You know what? The fact that somebody can dot the i’s and cross the t’s on a foreign leader’s geographic location then allows them to put our military in harm’s way,” Johnson told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell. The former New Mexico governor has been widely panned for a pair of foreign policy gaffes that have weighed down his long-shot candidacy. First, Johnson responded...

    Bumbling Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson wandered onto national television Tuesday to finally admit, with pride, that he does not study trivial things like world leaders and foreign nations. “If that’s a disqualifier, so be it,” Johnson hollered on CNN, echoing a line he coughed up last month after he failed to recognize Syria’s largest city. Johnson — baring bedhead hair and yelling nearly every time he opened his mouth — ostensibly appeared to defend his month of stunning ignorance about world affairs. In recent live TV appearances, Johnson didn’t know what Aleppo is and said “nobody got hurt” in...
