    July 11, 2012 A vendetta against the CEO of a former for-profit college in Louisville may have forced the school’s closure, but a federal court ruling released this week may have opened the door for the college to recoup millions of dollars lost in bankruptcy. In 2004 the Atlanta-based Council on Occupational Education approved accreditation for three new technical programs—carpentry, electrician and HVAC—at Decker College. The programs included distant, or online, learning in its applications. But in 2005, federal student aid officer Ralph LoBosco asked the council to rethink its accreditation for the technical school. Many at the time felt...

    President Trump's three Republican primary challengers will debate on Saturday in Nashville, Tenn., organizers announced. The debate and conversation with former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R), former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) and former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld (R) will take place at 11 a.m. at the Politicon political convention, officials said. "Join Gov. Bill Weld, Gov. Mark Sanford, and Rep. Joe Walsh as they discuss 2020 and the future of the republic. Is President Trump listening?" organizers asked on the convention website. It was not immediately clear whether Trump was invited to the debate. Allies of the president including...

    Mark Levin ripped 2020 Republican presidential candidate William Weld for claiming President Trump committed treason and suggesting he, therefore, face the death penalty over the Ukraine controversy. Weld, a former Massachusetts governor and U.S. attorney in the Bay State, should be lambasted by all Americans for those comments, Levin said Monday on "The Mark Levin Show on Westwood One." "This should be an absolute controversy that William Weld just accused the president of treason -- pure and simple -- and then said the only penalty is 'death'," he said. "I worked with Bill Weld. Bill Weld is a conniving, unethical...

    Bill Weld jokes about not kissing the back of a child’s head because he doesn’t want to be accused, like Joe Biden, of making people uncomfortable. He tells voters they wouldn’t know how obese Americans truly are until they go to county fairs, where “those overalls are working overtime.” And he believes his opponent’s policies are trending in the direction of Adolf Hitler.For now, Weld is the most prominent Republican in revolt, mounting a primary challenge to President Donald Trump. But in places like New Hampshire, where there’s a healthy contingent of Republicans uneasy with Trump, Weld is still a...

    Former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld, who is challenging President Trump for the 2020 Republican presidential nomination, said Saturday that the government should not interfere with a woman's right to an abortion. “The way I look at it, it’s kind of a power issue,” Weld said while campaigning in New Hampshire, according to The Associated Press. “And who wants a lot of big, fat, white guys who live in Washington 700 miles away making the decision about what’s going to happen about a family pregnancy where the family has basis for some views and maybe wants to terminate the pregnancy.” Weld...

    President Donald Trump’s only major Republican primary challenger said Saturday that the recent spate of abortion laws being passed in states like Alabama has him feeling “terrible,” and declared that abortion is a decision the government should not come anywhere near. At a campaign stop in Exeter, New Hampshire, former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld told a crowd of voters he’s “the most pro-choice person you’re ever going to meet.” “The way I look at it, it’s kind of a power issue,” Weld said. “And who wants a lot of big, fat, white guys who live in Washington 700 miles away...

    I thought we’d end up with zero given the futility of the endeavor. Instead one has already declared, another is making post-Mueller noises about getting in, and a third — the most formidable, although not very formidable — is out there watching. A four-man field, potentially? The more choices there are, the smaller Trump’s landslide margin will be.The one who’s already in is William Weld. The one who’s making noise is Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, who spoke at the “Politics and Eggs” event this morning in New Hampshire that all presidential candidates eventually make their way to. Hogan has...

    Good news for Team NeverTrump: they have their man — a declared 2020 primary challenger to Donald Trump, and it’s exactly the man they wanted, the former Republican governor of Massachusetts, a man who has graced a presidential ticket before, Mitt… Sorry, Willard… No, wait… Will… William. As in William Weld. The other former Republican governor of Massachusetts who once had a spot on a national ticket, as the Libertarian party’s 2016 nominee for vice president. Romney has carpet-bagged his way to the US Senate, after all, a perch from which he can write Washington Post op-eds to show how...

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld announced Monday he is officially entering the race for president, becoming the first Republican to challenge President Donald Trump in the 2020 race. "Ours is a nation built on courage, resilience, and independence. In these times of great political strife, when both major parties are entrenched in their 'win at all cost' battles, the voices of the American people are being ignored and our nation is suffering," Weld, who had previously formed an exploratory committee, said in a statement. "It is time for patriotic men and women across our great nation to stand and plant...

    Former Massachusetts Gov. William “Bill” Weld announced Monday he is running against President Trump for the Republican nomination for president. Weld revealed that he formed a presidential exploratory committee back in February, but Monday’s announcement makes his intra-party challenge official. “In these times of great political strife, when both major parties are entrenched in their ‘win at all cost’ battles, the voices of the American people are being ignored and our nation is suffering,” Weld said in a statement provided to the Washington Examiner. “ … It is time to return to the principles of Lincoln – equality, dignity, and...

    Former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld told an audience in New Hampshire Friday that he will try to take on President Trump in the 2020 Republican presidential primary, offering the first high-profile challenge to the president’s reelection effort. Weld, 73, said he would seek to determine over the coming months if he can raise enough money to continue his challenge of the president. He said he would run on a traditional Republican agenda of fiscal responsibility and provide a stylistic contrast to Trump. “It is time for all people of good will — and our country is filled with people of...

    The pot industry panicked when U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions ended the government’s hands-off policy on weed. Today, it can breathe a bit easier as former Republican House Speaker John Boehner joins the advisory board of U.S. cannabis producer Acreage Holdings. ~SNIP~ The announcement that Boehner and former Massachusetts Governor William Weld will advise Acreage, a private company, “should send shockwaves throughout the industry and act as a positive catalyst for the sector as a whole,” Ajamian said. Boehner’s move marks a fundamental shift for a man who said nine years ago he was “unalterably opposed” to legalization, and indicates...

    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...

    http://johnrlott.blogspot.com/2016/11/libertarian-vp-nominee-bill-weldmy.html Libertarian VP nominee Bill Weld claims:"my belief is that the libertarian party pulls substantially more from Mr. Trump" @ 2:41 mark (video is available here). I had heard that Weld has been raising money with this message as a way of getting those who want Hillary to win to donate money. Consistent with that, it also just so happens that the big dollars that the libertarians have been spending have apparently been on conservative talk radio. The New York Times also has an op-ed saying that the Libertarians will tilt the election to Hillary Clinton. With just a few...

William Weld in the October 4 vice presidential debate. They announced this today, late on a Friday afternoon, known in the spin world as the best time to release news that one wishes to bury. In their attempt to bolster the chances of the two most hated presidential candidates...

    Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is thinking about supporting the Libertarian presidential ticket this year. Well, at least, that’s what the Libertarian ticket says. In a interview Thursday afternoon with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, former Govs. Gary Johnson and Bill Weld, of New Mexico and Massachusetts, respectively, said they have had spoken with Romney and he was “considering the possibility” of endorsing the two of them.
