Gary Johnson: A National Political Disgrace

We hold theses truths to be self-evident

Gary Johnson, Libertarian Party candidate for President, is not of sound mind. Since Johnson is what some would call a self-made millionaire and a lifelong conservative we can not avoid the assumption of something about Johnson has taken a turn to La-La Land.  

An even more intriguing dynamic is the number potential voters actually find Johnson an acceptable presidential candidate. The three images that follow shows Johnson's polling performance since May of this year.

Johnson consistently captures around 10% of 2016 presidential polling. What could polling respondents find appealing in a candidate who with each public appearance seems to have further devolved into the world of zany, weird and bizarre? Could it be he serves as a protest vote against Clinton and Trump? Could his very public affinity for the "weed" generate such consistent polling? The answer isn't easy to pinpoint, but rest assured the Johnson supporters represent a segment of potential voters who are appreciably outside the scope of responsible.

Let's run through three recent instances of Johnson as one who seems to have lost a great deal of cognitive acuity or one who may even appear intoxicated while trying to appear rational on camera.

Gary Johnson Bizarrely Sticks His Tongue Out at Reporter Like the Very Serious Candidate He Is 
It’s the dream for any third party candidate running for President to make headlines just days before a general election debate.  
But recently, the headlines for former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson haven’t exactly been the type that he’s been hoping to get.
The one time Republican turned Libertarian party candidate for the White House went instantly viral two weeks ago during an interview with MSNBC’s Morning Joe. Johnson, who touts his GOP executive experience in a heavily blue state, asked columnist Mike Barnicle point black, “What is Aleppo?” in reference to the refugee crisis in Syria.
And today’s bizarre turn may not help things much either.  
NBC News’s Kasie Hunt interviewed Johnson about pulling even in some of the battleground state polls if he were able to get onto the debate stage with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump (Johnson fell short of qualifying for Monday night’s debate in Long Island). “There would be an examination of me and [Vice Presidential candidate] Bill Weld as who we are and what we’ve done,” he said. 
He then stuck his tongue out, bit it, and somewhat coherently said (I think): “I’m not gonna stand up there for the whole debate and not say anything and [incomprehensible].”  
Watch — and enjoy — the clip via MSNBC.

Truly outside the realm of normal adult behavior.

Another case of 'dead brain cells' syndrome manifesting as Johnson was asked about climate change. The Sun will do it!

The encore performance: "Aleppo." A case of clear mental failure for a person who seeks to become the leader of the most powerful nation on Earth. Is it possible Johnson occupies himself in ways which do not include in concern about current events? The US has a vested interest in the war in Syria and Iraq; a war (from a US perspective against ISIS. How it is possible Johnson allowed himself to exist in such an uninformed state? How can he allow himself to influence the fall elections when he so clearly operates with an elevator which doesn't go all the way to the top.


Is your vote in safe hands?

Inquisitor's five positions of Gary Johnson.  There are actually many more positions which should frighten liberal and progressive America.

Signs of the Times; Racism Lives Well In The American Right

Image via all Things Democrat
I can remember a time before Ronald Reagan's presidential campaigns, when people such as that you are about to see, and hear were self-imposed closet racist. They would dare not go public in any way based on an absence of political correctness and possible scorn from millions. Since, Kevin Phillips (Nixon) and Lee Atwater's (Reagan) the US has evolved to a veritable cesspool of bigotry and racism with roots, branches and leaves flourishing in every aspect of our society. We can expect daily exhibitions of such, and to go a week without such reports is a reality of the distant past. 

As recently as last week Michelle Bachmann blessed the nation with another blast of complete race based insanity coupled with typical Bachmann oratory.  
“I think there was a cachet about having an African-American president because of guilt," Bachmann told conservative columnist Cal Thomas in comments flagged by the Huffington Post. “People don’t hold guilt for a woman."
It seems Bachmann deploys the most shallow approach to combating Hillary Clinton in 2016.

On the opposite end of the scale, we find the likes of Ted Nugent and Sarah Palin. 
"I have obviously failed to galvanize and prod, if not shame, enough Americans to be ever vigilant not to let a Chicago Communist-raised, Communist-educated, Communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer gangster Barack Hussein Obama to weasel his way into the top office of authority in the United States of America." Nugent.

Why Palin? She recently reiterated an affinity for Nugent via his campaigning on behalf of a Texas gubernatorial candidate.

So much for those the Right who while guttural, occupy a place at the top of the gutter (e.g., Bachmann). There are some who are complete gutter dwellers comparable to the level of a bottom-dwelling amoeba. We offer one who competes with Nugent for chief amoeba.

The Raw Story

Tenn. official ‘threatened’ blacks with skin ‘trophy’ he saved from 1896 lynching (via Raw Story )
The state of Tennessee has fired a veteran investigator because officials believed that he attempted to use violent stories about how his relatives participated in a lynching to intimidate African-Americans who were trying to file claims against emergency…

Another very crestfallen aspect of what you just read, some of you go to voting booths and vote for the same candidates that love in words full of such people.  Oh, of course, you ridicule  my connect to the GOP and Libertarian Party.  Rather than ridicule, police!  People have full control over the proliferation of racism and bigotry inherent in conservative America.   

While, you may not be able to control the person, you have opportunity to publicly protest their "slime." People do not stand well to public criticism; it tends to change behavior.

I have yet to here or read serious admonition of racist acts for leaders of the GOP nor from celebrity leaders of the Libertarian Party. This, they enable.

Kochs Want To Own America (Romney is their lynchpin)

I was recently re-introduced to the Kochs from a perspective that I will admit to being shamelessly ignorant. David and Charles Koch come from 'stock' that many might consider dangerous to any society.  Dangerous if one considers that so many of our traits, character, and motivations are passed down through our DNA. If you or I somehow avoid physical and mental family DNA, think about the significant impact of our 'upbringing" (lineage, environment and parenting).  The Kochs have a lineage that includes societal horrors in Nazi German and the 1950's US John Birch Society(JBS).

Writers admit to difficulty in finding information about the Koch family. A history that may connect to Nazi war Crimes.   How about a quick journey through the Koch's contribution to the Third Reich. 

Let's start with a Ilse Koch: (many bloggers are reporting this same information . The root origin of the information is not easy to locate)

 Ilse Koch

Notorious Nazis Ilse Koch, her husband Karl Otto Koch and Erich Koch are the ghosts of  Koch Industries, who seized the U.S. conservative political agenda years ago and seem capable of seizing the government in total through the Tea Party. Ilse Koch was the Nazi’s specialist in making objects from human skin; was the only woman charged with war crimes; and along with her husband was in charge of one of the most horrific horror camps in Nazi Germany. Ilse and her husband Karl were tried by the SS before the war ended, accused of corruption. Her husband Karl Otto Koch was tried and sentenced to death in Nazi Germany. After the war, Ilse was arrested in the German American Zone, tried in front of a tribunal and sentenced, but was quickly pardoned by the American general appointed leader of the zone.
Erich Koch
Koch reported to Hitler that unemployment had been banished entirely from East Prussia, a feat that gained admiration throughout the Reich.

On September 1, Koch became Reichskommissar of Reichskommissariat Ukraine with control of the Gestapo and the police. His domain was extended from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea; he captured ethnic German, Polish, Belarus and Ukrainian’s declaring that “Ukraine children need no schools. What they’ll have to learn will be taught them by their German masters” and “If I meet a Ukrainian worthy of being seated at my table, I must have him shot..”.
Brother of Erich Koch, Karl Otto Koch
….(August 2, 1897 – April 5, 1945), a Standartenf├╝hrer (Colonel) in the German Schutzstaffel (SS), was the first commandant of the Nazi concentration camps at Buchenwald. On August 1, 1937 he was given command of the new concentration camp at Buchenwald. Investigation into his improper conduct at Buchenwald included corruption, fraud, embezzlement, drunkenness, sexual offences and a murder. Koch’s orders to kill prisoners at the camp were revealed, as well as embezzlement of property stolen from prisoners.
Fred Chase Koch
….(September 23, 1900 – November 17, 1967) chemical engineer and founded the TEXACO oil refinery firm that later became Koch Industries (Chevron). Koch and its customers were sued for patent infringement, process for turning crude oil into gasoline. Litigation effectively put Winkler-Koch out of business in the U.S. for several years. Koch turned his focus to foreign markets, including the Soviet Union and NAZI GERMANY, reportedly with the help of ERICH KOCH.

During his time in the Soviet Union, Fred Koch came to despise communism and Josef Stalin’s regime “a land of hunger, misery and terror”.

Fred C. Koch married Mary Robinson in Kansas City, Missouri in 1932. They had four sons, Frederick (b. 1933), Charles (b. 1935), David (b. 1940) and William (b. 1940). His sons are Charles de Ganahl Koch and David H. Koch.
Now let's move forward to the 1950's and Fred Koch, David and Charles Koch's father.

The John Birch Society


The society was established in Indianapolis, Indiana, on December 9, 1958, by a group of 12 led by Robert Welch, Jr., a retired candy manufacturer from Belmont, Massachusetts. Welch named the new organization after John Birch, an American Baptist missionary and United States military intelligence officer who was shot by communist forces in China in August 1945, shortly after the conclusion of World War II. Welch claimed that Birch was an unknown, but dedicated anti-communist,[7] and the first American casualty of the Cold War.

One of the founding members[22][23][24] was Fred Koch,[25] founder of Koch Industries, one of the largest private corporations in America.[26]

Robert Welch, JR,. on , "What is the John Birch Society". 

Youtube.... (4:13 Minutes. The primary focus for posting here is the last 2 minutes of the video)

If Fred Koch was one of 20 founders of the JBS, I posit it is impossible his children (at least the two most visible) managed to avoid a paradigm that coincided with the following.   

The John Birch Society is as anti-civil Rights, as the Ku Klux Klan. The basic difference between the two cancers in US society are tactics for achievement of a 'snow white' society. The JBS's possible acceptance of African-Americans living in servitude and certainly in a state akin to American Southern Jim Crowe is both offset and complimented by the Ku Klux Klan and many other white supremacist groups. While the Ku Klux Klan is generally about the uneducated, and guttural business of hatred of blacks, Jews and Catholics, the Welch/Koch founded JBS is much more crippling to the basic fabric of a fair America. 

If you watched Point 2 of the video, you heard Welch speak about JBS's concern with communism.  Much written material indicate the JBS aversion to civil rights was, and is, based in its concern for infiltration of communist and associated doctrine. Nonetheless, we lump the Ku Klux Klan, the John Birch Society as well as the Mormon Church are similarly anti-minority and harbor beliefs contrary to American principles as a republic democracy.  

Have you noticed the sprinkling of Republicnas we are openly using the word, "communism" in their opratory?  One has to wonder if they are not pandering to the Kochs.

If you take a bit of time and educate yourself about Charles and David Koch, you might get a better feel for progressive contempt at every mention of their names.  The name is forever emblazoned in world history.   Why allow the descendants of such shame take a financial hold on the Executive branch of the US Government?
