Gary Johnson

Bernie's Last Stand, Trump's Continuing Collectivism, and Johnson's New Hope

All that, plus a Krist Novoseli? GarJo endorsement on tonight's Kennedy, 8 p.m. ET

|

You know how the former Nirvana bassist and current independent-minded political thinker Krist Novoseli? is sweet on the candidacy of Libertarian Party presidential nominee Gary Johnson? He'll talk about it on tonight's Kennedy (Fox Business Network at 8 p.m. ET, with a repeat at midnight),

Speaking of GarJo, he had some positive polling news today—11 percent nationally, according to IBD/TIPP, and 16 percent in Utah, according to Gravis Marketing. If Bernie Sanders indeed loses the Democratic delegate race Tuesday night, we could see the same thing that happened after Donald Trump sewed up the GOP race last month: a tidal wave of Internet searches on terms like "third party," "Libertarian Party," and "Gary Johnson." Which we'll also discuss.

I'm on the Party Panel with Meghan McCain and comedian Bonnie McFarlane. We get into Trump's judicial collectivism, Hillary's allegedly poor behavior toward Secret Service agents, and the allegedly misogynistic reaction to the all-lady Ghostbusters reboot.

  1. a tidal wave of Internet searches on terms like “third party,” “Libertarian Party,” and “Gary Johnson.”

    The switchboards are lighting up!

    Yay!

    Two calls: that’s our best ever! [answers one] Hello? No, Janice doesn’t live here…[answers other] Hello? Yes, I am interested in long-distance savings! Very interested.

    1. Don’t be such a downer, man, the libertarian moment is coming dude, like it’s almost here you know. *spoken in slower more stoned Tommy Chong voice*.

  2. Speaking of GarJo

    You guys keep saying it, but GayJay is what stuck. But you guys just keep going on about your “homicide bombings”.

    1. It’s GayJay, it’s always been. GarJo? Reason must hate Gary to stick him with that. That sounds like something really nasty that gets stuck in your throat, like a hairball with thorns.

      1. Re: Hyperion,

        It’s GayJay, it’s always been. GarJo? Reason must hate Gary to stick him with that. That sounds like something really nasty that gets stuck in your throat, like a hairball with thorns.

        Or the aspiration you do to dislodge mucus from your throat before spitting it out.

        Smmnnnnort! Pffuit! – there, I just did a garjo.

  3. In the interview at the link, Johnson gives the best immigration answer I have ever heard.

  4. …and the allegedly misogynistic reaction to the all-lady Ghostbusters reboot.

    This is the absolute worst movie I haven’t seen yet. You guys better devote plenty of time to it tonight. Also, to prove the show is live, mention this comment at some point in it.

  5. Can we stop with this idea that pro-Sanders leftists are going to swing to GayJay? The Sanders folks are statists who hate capitalism and free markets. Those are central tenets to libertarian thought, which Reason ought to remember given its motto: “FREE MINDS AND FREE MARKETS”

    1. We can get them to swing GayJay. We just have to somehow sell Libertarianism as being like Net Neutrality for Politics.

    2. Re: Clint Eastwoodchipper,

      Can we stop with this idea that pro-Sanders leftists are going to swing to GayJay?

      I stopped like 25 years ago.

      The Sanders folks are statists who hate capitalism and free markets.

      Well, most are jealous blockheads who want something for nothing. They’re there for the ‘free stuff.’

    3. I don’t know. I have a friend who really wants bernie. But they also post things from libertarian pages.
      They are hard to pin.

    4. I’m with Clint, fuck the Sandernistas. The little communist wannabes would send us to gulags in a heartbeat if they read the views posted on this board. The sheer volume of WrongThink would make their little bleeding hearts explode.

  6. […] and the allegedly misogynistic reaction to the all-lady Ghostbusters reboot.

    Yes. I hate women. Especially unfunny women. Especially unfunny leftist women. And especially unfunny leftist women who participate in a remake that requires no remake, or a reboot.

    Yet the movie will stink by its own merits, so who has the last laugh, huh?

  7. RE: Bernie’s Last Stand

    Do not worry about Comrade Bernie.
    Heil Hitlery and Trump the Grump will pick up the baton of stupidity, socialism and suicidal political policies for him.
    After all, is there’s no difference between these three stooges.

  8. GayJay’s coming up on the Fox News after the break.

  9. 8.5% isn’t gonna get him in the debate. The lack of exposure can only help his vote total come November.

  10. Krauthammer call’s him a dope fiend. GayJay says he’s been clean for 5 whole weeks and he doesn’t want to answer the red phone at 3 AM while high. GayJay says he’s a stoner and not a medicinal user.

  11. GayJay called for no limit on immigration. Ass Sex is the only cosmo principle he hasn’t endorsed.

  12. Plugs “Fair Tax”. 30% bitchez

  13. They’ve buried GayJay on dope and immigration, foreign policy up next after the break. He might surprise them with his warmonger neocon bonafides.

  14. The Norks are our biggest threat…

    US must kowtow to align with China…

    US created ISIS…

    And we need to attack them…

  15. NAZI CAKES

    GayJay almost says polygamy is “anti-family” then he makes the self-save

    “Leave it up to the states” Good Republican answer.

    1. He endorses gay marriage but won’t say polygamy should be legal (In response to Tucker Carlson)

  16. Brett Baier busts out the “shovel ready jobs” joke from the 2012 Fla. GOP debate.

  17. Nice segment. GayJay handled it relatively well. Fox News personalities treated him respectfully.

    1. 1. I don’t want to be labeled a yolektarian (do I have that right?), but conservatives seem more willing to engage in respectful debate with those they disagree with than, say, progressives.
      2. I still believe that there is a large libertarian-leaning group in the GOP and their network news station(FOX).

      1. I think the Republican party at least understands our positions. They might disagree. They might hate us for some of them.

        1. And some, I’m assuming, are good people.

        2. Is it your position that you want your sons and daughters to die in some foresaken desert for people that sponser terroism. Do you want to have a nuclear war because our politicians who work for lobbyists not for you keep wanting to poke Russia and China so the death merchants make more money. Do you like being spied on 24 hrs a day. This is what the Republicans and Democrats have given you. Now they are rubbing your nose in a pile of poop by giving you a choice between a warmongering crook who would sale your soul for a buck and a narcissistic fool who is so unhinged he can’t remember what lies he tells from one day to the next. It might be time to look at option C don’t you think.

  18. GarJo

    Don’t. Just fucking don’t.

  19. If Hillary and Donald refuse to be in a debate with Johnson then at least Fox News and possibly CNN should give him a 2 hour platform set up just like their debate and ask him the exact same questions. There should be a big sign behind him that says “Why is the Demlican Party afraid to debate him.
    PS Demlican came from a staged school Electoral College in Houston Texas during the Kennedy/Nixon race where I did the roll call.
