    Former President Donald Trump and independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. reportedly had a meeting just as the Republican National Convention kicked off in Milwaukee on Monday—though Kennedy was quick to quell rumors that the end of his bid for the Oval Office is near. Multiple people familiar with the meeting told Politico the two met to discuss Trump possibly receiving Kennedy’s endorsement. ... “No, I am not dropping out of the race.” Shortly after the pair’s meeting Trump expressed support for Kennedy to be awarded Secret Service protection—something the Biden Administration quickly granted.

    President Biden has dropped months of resistance and agreed to grant Secret Service protection to independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. following the assassination attempt against former President Donald Trump. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced the move at the regular White House press briefing Monday after Trump was grazed with a bullet at a Saturday rally. “In light of this weekend’s events, the president has directed me to work with the Secret Service to provide protection to Robert Kennedy Jr,” Mayorkas said. Hours earlier, former President Donald Trump demanded that Kennedy receive Secret Service protection, calling it the...

    The Libertarian Party of Florida’s Executive Committee approved a motion over the weekend calling for the Libertarian National Committee to investigate allegations concerning the validity of votes cast for the presidential ticket during the party’s recent national convention. The resolution, first shared via X on Sunday, urges the LNC to investigate claims that the presidential and vice-presidential nominations at the party’s recent national convention may have been compromised by ineligible votes. While the party states that it remains committed to supporting its 2024 presidential ticket and will place it on the ballot, the resolution highlights concerns about potential legal and...

    In a video received by Independent Political Report earlier today, former Libertarian Party Vice-Presidential nominee Wayne Allyn Root (who ran with 2008 presidential nominee former Congressman Bob Barr) claims credit for “masterminding the suicide of the LP” as a result of his role in arranging the speech by former President Trump to delegates attending the 2024 Libertarian presidential nominating convention... A partial transcript of his remarks follows; a link to the full video can be found below. ROOT: Trump did something historic last Saturday. It’s long forgotten; . . .

    ABC NEWS ^ | 7-3-24 | Isabella Murray
    Former President Donald Trump's guilty verdict on all 34 counts in his hush-money trial appears to have a majority of independents and "double haters," those who have an unfavorable view of both Trump and President Joe Biden, feeling that the former president should end his bid for the White House, according to a recent ABC News/Ipsos poll -- a number that could have a ripple effect on the election in November. Among independents, 52% said they believed Trump should end his 2024 presidential campaign and within the even more specified group of "double haters," 67% said they felt the same...
  • “It’s Going to Backfire on Democrats” – They Have a Candidate “That Cannot Win Fair and Square” – Robert Kennedy Jr. Speaks Out Against Democrat Party’s Disgusting Show Trial and Verdicts Against Trump (VIDEO)

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | May 31, 2024 | Jim Hoft
    Independent presidential candidate, Robert Kennedy, Jr. spoke out against the disgusting Democrat Party show trial and verdicts against President Trump saying, “It’s going to backfire on Democrats!” Robert Kennedy, Jr. is also a victim of the Democrat Party machine. Democrats rigged their primary to make it impossible for any candidate to challenge Joe Biden. This is due to their “super-delegate” rule that allows far left elitists to pick the candidate and not the voters. These undemocratic party rules forced Robert Kennedy, Jr. to run as an independent. The Biden administration and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas also refused...

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr. slammed the jury’s verdict in former President Trump’s New York hush money case Thursday, calling it “profoundly undemocratic” and warning it will “backfire” against Democrats in November. “America deserves a President who can win at the ballot box without compromising our government’s separation of powers or weaponizing the courts. You can’t save democracy by destroying it first,” Kennedy wrote on the social platform X. “The Democrats are afraid they will lose in the voting booth, so instead they go after President Trump in the courtroom.”

    Market Ticker ^ | 28 May 2024 | Karl Denninger
    Chase Oliver is the Libertarian Party's nominee for President -- after speeches by both RFK and Trump at their convention. I understand how he got the nomination -- he's been quite-instrumental in getting ballot access for the party over the last few years and done a decent amount of campaigning and "boots on the ground" work (which the Libertarians, in general, are poor at with a few notable exceptions) and thus you can reasonably say "he earned it." His ballot win was also a blow to the so-called "Mises" wing of the party that some considered "hard right." Reason did...

    Independent Political Report ^ | May 29, 2024 | Jordan Willow Evans
    Libertarians for Kennedy, a group of Libertarians who sought to nominate independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. at the party convention, proposed a strategic plan on Wednesday to place Kennedy on certain state ballots. This effort aims to improve future ballot access for the party while also helping Kennedy participate in the presidential debates. The group initially invited Kennedy to seek the presidential nomination of the Libertarian Party at its convention held this past weekend. The invitation included a letter signed by several state Libertarian Party leaders, delegation chairs, and an alternate regional member of the Libertarian National Committee. Kennedy...
  • RFK Jr. super PAC chair to publish tell-all memoir by mother of Hunter Biden’s child

    The co-chairman of a super PAC supporting Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s presidential campaign announced plans Tuesday to publish a tell-all memoir this summer by an Arkansas woman who had a child with Hunter Biden, the youngest son of President Joe Biden. “Out of the Shadows: My Life Inside the Wild World of Hunter Biden” is written by Lunden Roberts, who gave birth to Hunter Biden’s daughter in 2018. Biden — who has a long history of drug and alcohol addiction — wrote in his own 2021 memoir that he “had no recollection” of his encounter with Roberts. After initially contesting...

    Libertarian National Committee Chair Angela McArdle appeared to withhold immediate support for the Libertarian Party ticket of Chase Oliver and Mike ter Maat on Tuesday, instead urging members to prioritize the potential benefits of a 2024 Trump administration. “Everyone is understandably flipping out right now. I will have more to say this weekend,” McArdle said on Tuesday. “For now, I will say that I delivered an incredible convention, with the help of my amazing staff and volunteers. All of my critics were WRONG. I made the right call to invite Donald Trump and if libertarians can behave themselves, he will...

The 38-year-old, who has previously run for Congress multiple times in Georgia, focused his pitch on making Libertarian values palatable to a broader audience. In an interview with CNN following his nomination, Oliver said he believes earning 2% of the vote nationally in November’s general election is a reasonable goal. ...

    Daily Mail ^ | 5/26/24 | Emily Goodin
    Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on Sunday became a candidate for the Libertarian Party's presidential nomination, a shocking move that could give him enough votes to defeat Donald Trump or Joe Biden in November. Kennedy, who spoke at the convention Friday, was nominated by a delegate on the convention floor on Sunday to be the party's White House standard barrier. Kennedy's candidacy was met with boos from other delegates. His candidacy was short-lived, however. He was eliminated from contention several hours later, after the first round of voting, having receiving support from 19 delegates, just 2.07% of the vote. There was...

    As RedState reported, former President Donald Trump went to the Libertarian National Convention to extend a hand and reach out for their vote. There were some folks in the crowd who were not happy with him being there. He got a mixed reaction, including boos from folks who, it seemed, were angry that he was invited at all. But he also received some cheers during the speech and there were supporters in the audience. If you think about it, it was pretty brave to go into the house of another party and ask for their vote.

    Donald Trump promised members of the Libertarian Party that he would “put a libertarian in my cabinet” and commute the life sentence of Silk Road founder Ross Ulbricht, a top demand of a political movement that intends to run its own candidate against him. “On day one, we will commute the sentence,” Trump said, offering to free the creator of what was once the internet’s most infamous drug clearinghouse. “We will bring him home.” His speeches more typically include a pledge to execute drug dealers, citing China as a model. “It’s time to be winners,” said Trump, asking rhetorically if...

    Donald Trump addressed the Libertarians’ National Convention on Saturday night in an effort to win over activists who are skeptical of the GOP frontrunner, and turn them away from independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. The Libertarian National Convention is being held at the Washington Hilton hotel through Sunday with the tagline: "Become Ungovernable." The former president addressed a rowdy crowd, seemingly split 50-50 between his supporters and Libertarian skeptics. Trump tried to win over the crowd, saying: "In the last year, I've been indicted by the government on 91 different things. So if I wasn't a libertarian before, I...
