  • Tulsi Gabbard and the Great Deception

    Illinois Review ^ | October 12, AD 2022 | John F Di Leo
    Former congressman, veteran, and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard (D, Hawaii) made news this week by leaving the Democratic Party, with a stinging public rebuke to the corruption and warmongering of its current leadership. She wins points with reasonable people whenever she's on television, and why not? Tulsi Gabbard is attractive, well-spoken, logical... always a welcome talk show guest because she's willing to call out her fellow Democrats for some of their extreme, destructive positions. But don't be fooled. Tulsi Gabbard is NOT one of us. America may owe Tulsi Gabbard a debt of gratitude for her wonderful takedown of Kamala...
  • Exclusive-Former Republicans and Democrats form new third U.S. political party

    Dozens of former Republican and Democratic officials announced on Wednesday a new national political third party to appeal to millions of voters they say are dismayed with what they see as America's dysfunctional two-party system. The new party, called Forward and whose creation was first reported by Reuters, will initially be co-chaired by former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang and Christine Todd Whitman, the former Republican governor of New Jersey. They hope the party will become a viable alternative to the Republican and Democratic parties that dominate U.S. politics, founding members told Reuters. Party leaders will hold a series of...
  • Why Trump may choose to run third-party in 2024

    During the 1992 election, Texas billionaire Ross Perot managed to get on the ballot as an independent presidential candidate in all 50 states and garnered 19 percent of the vote. It was a remarkable feat that — in the eyes of some Republicans, including President George H.W. Bush and his son, George W. Bush — tipped the election to Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton. Keep in mind, that percentage of voters chose the third-party candidate even after it was reported that Perot, who loved conspiracies, claimed he saw five men with rifles on his front lawn and, later, that the Bush...
  • Meet Princess Blanding: The Revolutionary Choice for Governor of Virginia

    Source: Photo/PrincessBlanding.comImagine you are a hardcore liberal Democrat or independent in Virginia. Voting for the buoyant Glenn Youngkin is a non-starter. He’s a Republican, a conservative, and a multi-millionaire who made his fortune as a 25-year executive at the Carlyle Group, a private-equity house. Youngkin served as Carlyle’s co-CEO. “Vote for a CEO in finance? Not bloody likely!” you might think. And then there’s Terry McAuliffe. Yes, he’s a Democrat, but Smarmy is his middle name. He spent much of his career as the bag man for the Clinton crime family. He oozes shadiness. And then there’s his goofy dance,...

    According to a new poll, nearly half of Republicans say they will leave the Republican Party to join a third-party created and led by former President Donald Trump. That doesn't bode well for the Republican establishment. The new poll by Suffolk University-USA Today found a whopping 46 percent of Republicans are willing to leave the GOP in order to a join new party created by Donald Trump. Just 27 percent of Republicans said they would stick with the GOP, and the rest are undecided. "We feel like Republicans don't fight enough for us, and we all see Donald Trump fighting...

    Division by both sides on the directions of the Republican and Democratic parties has helped drive support for a national third party to an all-time high of 62%.In the latest Gallup survey, just 33% are pleased with the two-party system.What’s more, former President Donald Trump’s talk about his own “MAGA” party could be playing a role in a spike in GOP support for something new.“Republicans' record desire for a third party comes at a time when they are deciding whether to remain loyal to Trump or to move on from him,” according to the survey analysis just released.“Currently, 68% of...

    A group described by Reuters as “former Republican officials,” numbering as many as “dozens,” is reportedly seeking to form a new, “center-right” alternative to the current Republican Party — one without the influence of Donald Trump. Reuters reported Wednesday: Dozens of former Republican officials, who view the party as unwilling to stand up to former President Donald Trump and his attempts to undermine U.S. democracy, are in talks to form a center-right breakaway party, four people involved in the discussions told Reuters. The early stage discussions include former elected Republicans, former officials in the Republican administrations of Ronald Reagan, George...

    PAY ATTENTION – Those Still Advocating Against a Third Party Need to Move to Acceptance Phase, GOP is NOT Recoverable Posted on February 7, 2021 by Sundance Wyoming GOP representative Liz Cheney, a Decepticon of the highest tier, appears smugly on Fox News for an interview. As much as the interview itself is insufferable in its disconnect many people need to watch and accept. Cheney ramps-up the attacks against President Trump and his supporters. Keep in mind that Trump holds more than 85% approval within the party, yet Cheney and the Decepticons just don’t care; they hate anyone who does...

    There were three critical swing states in which the Green Party appeared on the ballot in 2016 and didn’t appear in 2020. The states of Arizona, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania all removed the Green Party from the presidential election in 2020, with Democratic operatives using underhanded tactics to kick them off. Labor activist Howie Hawkins was the Green Party’s 2020 presidential nominee. In 2016, the Green Party nominee Jill Stein won more than 34,000 votes in Arizona. If a Green Party candidate had appeared with ballot access in the state in 2020, he or she would’ve been sure to win enough...

    It should come as no surprise that Bush-era Republicans are frustrated with the middle class “America First” crowd that supports President Trump and the MAGA movement. The cocktail party GOPe have always looked down their noses at the base of supporters; now they report -via Reuters- that they will abandon the Republican party.

    Ditching the GOP is a bad idea born of justifiable frustration, and we need to stop being emotional and start being ruthless in our campaign to retake this country from these liberal establishment aspiring fascists. A third party is not the way. It is a bad idea, one that is technically impractical and which is strategically inept. It will lead to disaster. And the Democrats know it, which is why they love this third party palaver. The only thing that makes the tooting likes of Eric Swalwell coo in delight harder than some mediocre Chi Com honeypot is the thought...

    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — In a state known for its political shenanigans, the Senate race in South Carolina is living up to that reputation as campaigning between U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham and Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison enters its closing days. This week, Harrison has been mounting a campaign to cleave voters from Graham and steer them toward a third, more conservative candidate, although that candidate is no longer actively running. The tactic could appeal to South Carolina voters who voted Graham in but have at times critiqued him as not conservative enough for the state

    Rep. Justin Amash is considering a third-party presidential run this year to challenge President Trump and Joe Biden, and will be making a decision “soon,” his campaign said Wednesday. The campaign for Amash, the former Republican, put out a statement Wednesday saying the Michigan independent will make a decision “soon.” “In mid-February, Justin Amash paused active campaigning for his congressional seat to carefully consider a presidential run,” his campaign said. “He has been discussing the potential campaign with his family, his friends, his team, and others, and a decision can be expected soon.” […] Amash is a libertarian-minded conservative who...

    2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said this week that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, is likely being groomed by Moscow as a third-party candidate for the 2020 race. In an interview on the podcast of former Obama campaign manager David Plouffe, Clinton expressed her concerns about possible Russian interference in 2020. “They’re also going to do third-party again,” Clinton said. “I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on someone who’s currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of...

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) has uh... something to say. In a Thursday interview with the Campaign HQ podcast, Hillary Clinton suggested Russia was "grooming" a current 2020 candidate "to be the third party candidate," clearly implying that the outsider Democrat Gabbard is a "favorite of the Russians." So with a very absurd and slightly unhinged tweet storm, Gabbard fired back. Reports have indicated Gabbard's campaign has become a target of foreign bots and Russian media — something Gabbard didn't address in her Friday tweets. She instead labeled Clinton "the queen of warmongers" and "embodiment of corruption," and taunted her by...

    California billionaire and liberal activist Tom Steyer will announce this week that he plans to enter the already crowded field of candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination, according to a person close to him. The decision by Steyer, one of the biggest donors to Democratic politicians, was unexpected. He had traveled to Iowa earlier in the year to announce he would not run, but would instead focus on his large grass-roots campaign to impeach President Trump. But Steyer now appears to see an opening. The Democratic primary field remains unsettled. Former Vice President Joe Biden’s poor debate performance last month...

    Washington Examiner ^ | May 22, 2019
    Rep. Justin Amash's tweets declaring that President Trump committed impeachable offenses have made him an outcast among Republicans, but many of his supporters are excited about what they see as a sign he will run for president as a Libertarian. The Michigan Republican, 39, is known for defying party leaders on issues such as mass surveillance and government spending. And since Trump took office, he’s been viewed as a possible Libertarian champion in 2020 — a notion amplified by his Saturday remarks. Amash’s emergence as a possible competitor may have caught Trump’s campaign off-guard.
