Libertarian Party member and activist – not to mention former Libertarian Vice-President candidate and Muslims for Liberty founder  and current M4L National Director Will Coley has called out former Libertarian National Committee Chair candidate Charles Peralo for being a Republican, not a Libertarian, because he has pledged his “vote for 80% of Republican elections.” Coley has been a thorn on Peralo’s side ever since Peralo publicly accused him of allegedly encouraging a Libertarian activist named Mark Matthew Herd to instigate a temper tantrum because he was highly inebriated in the hallway of the Rosen Centre in Orlando, Florida on May 28 that weekend.

Keep in mind that the following video that Peralo references comes from talk radio show host Jason Stapleton of The Jason Stapleton Program posted on his Facebook wall, dated May 28, 2016.

Here are the Facebook posts chronicling what took place on May 29, 2016:

Jason Scheurer responded to this as well, including Zach Patman:

This is Scheurer’s post zoomed in from Facebook as a photo:

I took sides with Being Libertarian‘s Head of Media Relations staffer Mike Mazzarone (Twitter username @MJMazzarone) and Peralo against Will on the grounds that I, along with nearly everyone else, believed them. It wasn’t until Tim Yow Jr., a Michigan Libertarian and a good friend of mine, told me (as he stated in the two-above screenshots) that Peralo lied to him. He didn’t know Mazzarone, but I was wrong to accept Mazzarone’s word as I should have looked into it more before I rendered my judgment in favor of anyone or anything. I dropped the ball on that, and I was wrong.

This is what I posted on May 29 on my timeline, and I now regret having done it since:

todd-andrew-barnett-on-charles-peralo-and-his-attack-on-will-coley-part-1-clip-1-05-29-2016-10-22-2016Here’s what everyone in the comments section on my timeline said:
todd-andrew-barnett-on-charles-peralo-and-his-attack-on-will-coley-part-2-clip-2-05-29-2016-10-22-2016

On that same day, I shared my post on the John McAfee / Judd Weiss Libertarian Party Presidential Campaign 2016 Facebook group (which is a closed discussion group anyway). There I posted the following:

todd-andrew-barnett-on-charles-peralo-and-his-attack-on-will-coley-part-3-clip-3-05-29-2016-10-22-2016

Just so everyone can see, I updated that post with a 10-21-2016 statement in which I had just renounced my statement that I sent out on May 29 because of the error of my thinking and my ways.

The day I sent this post to the McAfee group, members poured in with their comments, and they are the following:


todd-andrew-barnett-on-charles-peralo-and-his-attack-on-will-coley-part-4-clip-4-05-29-2016-10-22-2016-alternativeNow last night on October 21, I posted the following to the same thread. Mazzarone responded not so kindly to me as well:

todd-andrew-barnett-on-charles-peralo-and-his-attack-on-will-coley-part-5-clip-5-05-29-2016-10-22-2016

To take my apology further, I was wrong to crucify Will for what happened. I should have listened to him and not to Mazzarone and Peralo. I wish Stapleton had clarified it, but he dropped the ball on that one.

I already apologized to Will tonight, and it went like this:

my-apology-to-will-coley-clip-1-10-21-2016


my-apology-to-will-coley-part-2-clip-2-10-21-2016

And that’s the truth.

(And,  oh yes, I’m running for Michigan State Representative, District 32, in 2018. Be on the lookout next year and the year after that.)

I’m glad Will has come out with this revelation. Why? Let me explain.

This is the same Peralo who opposes the Non-Aggression Principle (NAP), considering the NAP should not be an absolute principle that spans in and out of politics and even within and outside of the State. If he had his druthers, he would repeal the LP’s pledge that a new Party member must sign when he or she joins the Party and a renewing member must reinforce when he or she renews her dues.

Here’s Peralo’s milquetoast stand on the NAP, which is a time-honored principle (which should be treated and viewed as a directive more than anything):
charles-peralo-on-the-non-aggression-principle-at-www-charlesperalo-com-clip-1-10-22-2016

The Pledge exists for a reason, Peralo. It exists because you don’t employ force or fraud against anyone who *IS NOT* violent towards you or *DOES NOT* employ violence against you whatsoever. The only defensive aggression – or force if you wish to call it – is when someone tries to be violent towards you (i.e. taking your property, brandishes a firearm and raises it to your head and pulls the trigger (thus murdering you in cold blood), engages in rape, molestation,, , and you have a natural right to defend your person.

The goal of taxation is to repeal it, because taxation *IS* theft. But, while that is true and that is the goal to end taxation across the board, cuts in taxes to the point where it can be easily repealed can be justly, morally, legally, and swiftly taken. Anyone with a pulse worth his or her salt can neither speak out against it nor see it not coming to pass.

L. Neil Smith, a libertarian who is a former Libertarian, describes the Non-Aggression Principle (which is also called the Zero Aggression Principle like this:

l-neil-smith-who-is-a-libertarian-clip-1That’s why Charles Peralo isn’t a libertarian. He is a capital (L) Libertarian, but ideologically speaking, he’s a “Libertarian-In-Name-Only” Libertarian. That alone does *NOT* say much about him being a s0-called libertarian, but it certainly speaks volumes about his character.

As Coley succinctly put it:

[Y]our self professed new libertarian party leaders folks[.]

It’s time for the Libertarian Party to return to its principles and to preserve, protect, restore, and carry out the Non-Aggression Principle while running candidates to win. It’s time that we are *NOT* like the Democrats and Republicans. It’s time that we are a far cry from them.

That’s what we should be and what we ought to strive for, not to be a carbon copy of either the Democrats or the Republicans. What will it take for the immensely milquetoast LINOs in my Party to fathom that? Seriously!

Libertarian Presidential Candidate and Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson Interviewed on Real Time with Bill Maher

Bill Maher and Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson Screen-Shot 2016-07-01

 

On last night’s HBO‘s Real Time with Bill Maher, limousine liberal and Real Time host Bill Maher interviewed 2016 Libertarian presidential candidate and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson at the beginning of his show, talking about Bill seeing Gary’s name a lot lately because Gary is the third name in the race and that part of the reason there is so much talk about Johnson in the race is that they don’t like Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Here’s the transcript of the discussion that transpired during the broadcast:

Bill Maher: You know, I, I see your name a lot lately, uh, because you are the third person in the race. Now you have to admit part of the reason why there is so much talk about you is they don’t like the other two.

Gov. Gary Johnson: Uh, completely agree, but, uh….

Maher:[interrupting] And you’ll take it, right?

Johnson: Well, uh, but Bill Weld and myself are the only third party candidates that are going to be on the ballot in all 50 states. So there is a justification.

Maher:[interrupting]  Oh, you will be in all 50 states…

Johnson:[interrupting as well] Yeah, yeah.

Maher: ….already? Because the last time I read it wasn’t  up to 50, but…

Johnson: [interrupting again]  No, it’s not, but, uh,….

Maher: Far ahead.

Johnson: Yes, far ahead of 2012. We were on the ballot in about 48 states.

Maher: And you’re polling in about 10 percent. But if you get 15 percent in the polls, then you’re in the debates, and that’ll change the game, right?

Johnson:  Right, and it’s really key right now just to be in these polls. We’re not in all these polls, and the polls that we’re in is always after Clinton and Trump and then as an afterthought, uh, Johnson. They posted a poll here a couple of days ago where Clinton and Trump and then another candidate got 12 percent, not even naming my name. So it’s a rigged game.

Maher:[interrupting immediately] It is a rigged game.

Johnson:[also interrupting immediatgely] A rigged game. You know…

Maher: But they, you know, Trump….

Johnson: But it is the way it is.

Maher: Trump says that too. But now, I mean, you were the Republican governor of, um, um, New Mexico.

Johnson: Yep, blue state. A Republican governor of blue sta-

Maher: [Interrupting again] Not now. Not when you were there.

Johnson: Yeah, no. It was very blue then. It was 2 to 1 blue then.

Maher: But you’re not blue.

Johnson: Well, uh, what’s the combination when you’re…

Maher: [immediately interrupting] You’re a Republican.

Johnson: [emphatically interrupting Maher] Republican governor and…

Maher:  [interrupting abruptly] And William Weld was a Republican, right? The point I’m making is you guys are….I don’t know….if you have changed so much, to me you just…you guys are Republican classic…

Johnson: [interjecting] No….

Maher: ….and Trump is Republican crazy or whatever. I mean, if this was, if this was, but what I’m just saying is if this was 25 years ago, you wouldn’t even be thinking about running as a Libertarian. You would be a mainstream Republican.

Johnson: Well, I always have been a libertarian by philosophy. I mean, recogni – or, uh, identifying myself as as a libertarian. Really, you could argue that I got to serve as a Republican, uh….

Maher: [interrupting once again] But I, I….

Johnson: I got to serve as a libertarian under, you know, the sheep’s clothing of being a Republican.

Maher: I read the Libertarian website. I mean, it’s like, woah, we want less government, and we’re gonna cut taxes. I’m like, “We already have a party that says that. It’s the Republicans.”  What’s the big difference?

Johnson: Well, being fiscally conservative and socially “we-really-don’t-give-a-damn” as you don’t force that on me. So people being able to make choices in their own lives. A woman’s right to choose, marriage equality, legalizing pot…[Met with an extremely loud applause from the audience]

Maher: Ok, but….but….with Donald Trump being the candidate, it seems to me that is kinda where the Republican Party has gone. Fiscally, they’re….I don’t know where they are fiscally ’cause he’s against free trade, but certainly on the social front? Donald Trump? Three wives? He…Maureen Dowd asked him about, uh, abortion, and he went, “Interesting question. What’s your next one?”

Johnson: Well…

Maher: They don’t seem to care. The evangelicals like him. I mean, he is not the old school Republican.

Johnson: Well, when he talked about abortion, and when he said, uh, “Should a woman should be punished?”, and he said, “Yes, a woman should be punished,” and then a couple of hours later, changed that to say that the doctor should be punished….um…. [Laughter coming from theaudience] I’ve got so many differences with, uh –

Maher: [interrupting again] Right.

Johnson: – Donald Trump starting with immigration. I mean, when they started talking…..when he started talking about, uh, –

Maher: [Interrupting] of course

Johnson: – going after 11 million undocumented workers, uh, that’s –

Maher: But….

Johnson: – just –

Maher: But…

Johnson: – crazy.

Maher: But not just Libertarians feel that way. All sane people feel that way. [Mild laughter from a woman in the audience]

Johnson: I think so. I think most sane people are actually Libertarian. It’s just that they don’t know it. [Loud laughter from a woman in the audience met with the audience applause]

Maher: But unfortunately….[Applause continuing and then dying] Unfortunately a lot of people who are not sane are Libertarian. I saw your convention. I mean, the vision of government is somewhere between, uh, colonial Williamsburg and Atlantis. [Johnson chuckles a bit][Loud laughter from the woman in that audience]

Johnson: An-

Maher: Uh, their economic theory is like, uh, “Mad Max takes your gas, and you die.” [Light laughter from the woman in the audience.] That…. I….there are some crazy people in your party. You got booed –

Johnson: And that….

Maher: – for saying things that I don’t think are really out of the mainstream….like five-year-olds shouldn’t get to buy heroin.

Johnson:[Loud laughing woman in that audience] Or that, that I support drivers licenses as a competency to drive a car.

Maher: There was an issue about blind people getting drivers licenses, and those nuts were –

Johnson: I don’t….

Maher: – for it.

Johnson: I don’t think – I don’t think crazy is unique to the Libertarian Party. I think you go to that Republican convention –

Maher: But somewhere –

Johnson: – you’ll see some crazy. You go to the Democratic convention you’ll see some crazy there too.

Maher: True. But somewhere along the way Libertarian, I don’t know, it gets –

Johnson: Well, the Libertarians did make me their nominee along with Bill Weld, so –

Maher: Yes –

Johnson: I can definitely say….

Maher: You know, you are the top of the sane in the Party. You are the right guy. [Johnson chuckles] [Loud applause from his audience] So, uh, they want to abolish a lot of stuff. What do you want to abolish? They, you know, they don’t like any gun laws, they don’t like the Fed, and you know, the gold standard they want to bring back, I mean, some –

Johnson: Well, I mean, I may not be in, in, in those camps as much, but I do believe government is too big, it tries to accomplish too much.  By doing that, they tax. They take money away from me – taxes, and that’s money I can be spending on my own.

Maher: How much, how much would you cut defense? That’s where the rubber meets the road on that issue.

Johnson: Well, ideally, you set a target, uh, to reduce the spending when it comes to, uh, defense. But, hey, the key word is “defense,” not “offense.” And we need to stop with these military –

Maher: But how much? It’s like, uh…it’s, uh….

Johnson: Well, if you, the Pentagon itself says that we should reduce, uh, bases in the United States by 20 percent. That hasn’t happened because congressmen and women stand up for those bases in their states, and that’s why that doesn’t happen. But, uh, look, yes, we can, we can cut, uh, spend, expenditures –

Maher: Give me –

Johnson: – for defense.

Maher: – give me a number. I mean, we probably spend a trillion when you add in the nukes and the wars and the stuff we put off the books.

Johnson: Well, I think you can target 20 percent –

Maher: 20?

Johnson: – and that wouldn’t be the end of the world.

Maher: Wow. You’re saner than I thought. [Johnson chuckles, and a loud applause from the audience goes off] I was hoping…I was hoping you’d say 50. Ok. So….

Johnson: And that….and, and,  and that’s targeted.  I’m –

Maher: Right.

Johnson: – looking to be elected President of the United States, since this is gonna have to be something that will have –

Maher: And you have said –

Johnson: – to come out of Congress.

Maher: You have not smoked pot in, what, eight weeks?

Johnson: Well, with, the legalization of marijuana, marijuana products are edibles. I had edibles about eight weeks ago.

Maher: Ok. [Loud applause with Johnson chuckling] But you have said, and I think this is prudent, that, uh, even though you do enjoy marijuana, when you’re in office you won’t because, you know, the 3 A.M. call –

Johnson: It’s a 24/7 job –

Maher: Right.

Johnson: – and actually running for President is a 24/7 –

Maher: Right.

Johnson: – job, so, uh.

Maher: So what’s that like not, not being high? [Applause from audience with Johnson lightly chuckling]

Johnson: What I, what I –

Maher: [Chuckling] The sacrifices you politicians make!

Johnson: What I want to be careful on is I, I don’t drink. But I don’t begrudge anyone having a drink in the evening to take the edge off. I don’t begrudge anybody having pot to take the edge off, so….

Maher: Lots of presidents were completely plod. Nixon, when he was going through Watergate, was going, “Guh, guh, guh, guh” every night. We know that. [Chuckles and laughter from the audience and from Johnson]

Johnson: People being –

Maher: Right.

Johnson: – able to make their own choices, and in my particular case, and I’m just speaking for myself –

Maher: Right.

Johnson: Like I say, 24/7 job running –

Maher: I hope you really get into the debates, because that would be great. [Loud applause from the audience and smile from Johnson] Thank you, Gary Johnson.

Johnson: Oh my gosh!

Maher: Good luck! Godspeed! Let’s meet our panel!

Here’s the video of that interview on Real Time.

Of course, that limousine liberal had to smear Libertarians at our Libertarian National Convention at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando, Florida at the end of May 2016 for being “crazy” because of the sane ideology that we have. He blew all of our ideas and principles out of proportion and assassinated our characters in the name of keeping his so-called “relevant” talk show high on a worthless premium cable channel.

Here’s the URL for Real Time Overtime:

Here is a Twitter tweet coming from Real Time’s Twitter account:

Here’s Real Time panelist Louise Mensch’s Twitter tweet that features her pose with Gary Johnson.

Twitter Responses to Bill Maher and Gary Johnson Interview Part 1 - Clip Part 1 - RTWBM - 07-01-2016

 

Here are two tweets from Johnson’s Twitter campaign account.

Gary Johnson's Twitter Tweet 1 - 07-01-2016 Gary Johnson's Twitter Tweet 2 - 07-01-2016

Here’s a tweet from Real Time’s account as well.

Real Time's Twitter Tweet - 07-01-2016Overall, the interview was….well, not bad. I just find it interesting that Maher erred on two things:

  1. He  thinks all Libertarians are “crazy” because he claims a few of them wanted blind people “to drive cars” and a five-year-old to buy heroin. But then he never talks about how bat shit crazy he is when his limousine liberal mind wants to regulate all businesses, worship the State, and everyone to despise all Muslims and every religion on the planet as well as convert to his religion of climate change. Not one single person at the Convention advocated heroin use for five-year-olds and the blind to drive automobiles. So he’s full of shit there, considering that’s never been reported from any Libertarian Facebook group of which I’ve been a member.and,
  2. He thinks our idea of government is “somewhere between colonial Williamsburg and Atlantis.” Not only that, our economic theory allegedly stated at the Rosen Centre in Orlando, Florida is the following: “Mad Max takes your gas, and you die.” What a fucktard of the highest order! Sure, Billy Boy, and you fuck and hump every hooker and chick with your hard Jewish cock they can get their hands on at your age of 60 or whatever the fuck your age is and you don’t mind getting an STD because of your irresponsible sexual practice of free love, I bet. That, and you probably snort coke on their tits and smoke some chronic to take the edge off with uber-style.

I can’t stand that snarky limousine liberal son of a bitch.

Update (07-21-2016): Here’s a new copy of the Gary Johnson interview in better shape. I hope everyone enjoys it.
