Libertarian Candidate Endorses Hillary
By Daily Bell Staff - November 02, 2016

‘I fear for the country’ if Trump wins, Bill Weld tells Rachel Maddow …  Libertarian vice presidential candidate William Weld said the country will be in “chaos” if Donald Trump wins the presidency and praised Hillary Clinton during an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Tuesday. – USA Today

Bill Weld is hardly a libertarian. His informal endorsement of Hillary Clinton shows this clearly.

Of course it is hard to say what a “libertarian” is, but it certainly isn’t someone who has supported gun control and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Weld has … and is.

He comes from one of the oldest families in America, is a Harvard graduate like many in his family and former governor of Massachusetts.

Some of his career was spent with the federal justice system where he sent numerous “white collar criminals” to jail.

Why is he the vice presidential candidate of the Libertarian Party?

That’s hard to say.  More:

The former Massachusetts governor conceded that a realistic goal for the Libertarian Party in this election would be to win 5% of the popular vote and while he didn’t call for Libertarian voters in swing states to vote for Clinton, he made it clear that he strongly opposes Donald Trump. 

“I see a big difference between the R candidate and the D candidate and I’ve been at some pains to say that I fear for the country if Mr. Trump should be elected,” Weld said. “It’s a candidacy without any parallel that I can recall. It’s content-free and very much given to stirring up envy and resentment and even hatred.

Weld also said he believes Trump is “psychologically” unstable, a bully and incapable of “competently managing the  office of the presidency.” 

The article points out that Weld’s criticism of Trump is in contrast to the “kind words” he had for Hillary. It also informs us that Libertarian presidential candidate. Gary Johnson, has criticized both mainstream candidates.

Weld is not so even-handed. The article quotes him as saying that he knows Hillary well, has worked with her professionally and believes her to be a “person of high moral character.”

He also said she is “reliable” and “an honest person.” He even predicted “chaos” if Trump were elected and said that the continued investigation into Hillary’s emails was just a distraction from more important issues.

Just from the public record alone, Weld’s comments on  Hillary don’t seem accurate. It seems fairly obvious that Hillary and Bill Clinton have presided over a “pay-to-play” program that funnels donations to the Clinton Foundation in return for political favors they are able to grant or initiate.

Meanwhile, the Council on Foreign Relations is evidently America’s most prominent globalist think tank. Weld’s membership certainly implies that he supports a borderless world managed by a technocratic elite using monopoly central banking and global corporatism.

Libertarianism certainly implies decentralized power and a lack of a guiding elite, which would seem to be the opposite of what the Council on Foreign Relations obviously endorses.

Weld’s presence on the Libertarian ticket is surely more evidence of the meaninglessness of political parties in an era of increase internationalism and high-level homogeneity.

Interestingly, while political parties have been neutered from the top down, Trump’s candidacy suggests that there is much different approach among voters who actually  have to support these parties.

Political leadership in modern Western societies usually doesn’t change much, and Weld’s presence on the Libertarian ticket is testimony to that. However, the current contentiousness in both Britain and America indicate that a change is occurring, though it certainly won’t come from Weld or Hillary.

Conclusion: It is not necessarily political change, as it is taking place on a personal level. But over time that will make it even more powerful.

    “I CANT EVEN STAND UP TO AMATEUR SCRUTINY!!! WE NEED TO FOCUS ON MAKING NEW MISTAKES AND NOT REMEMBERING THE BOTTOMLESS PIT OF MISTAKES THAT FOLLOW ME EVERYWHERE!!!” ~ Hillbillary (2016), “because, at this point, what does national security matter anyway!”

    An Independent/Libertarian from Massachusetts voting for a Democrat. Say it ain’t so.

    • john cummins

      It ain’t he ain’t Libertarian.

  • Bruce C.

    Weld says, “I fear for the country if Trump wins.” Well, I fear for the country if Hillary wins.

    • mary

      Well, I fear for the country. period.

      • Bruce C.

        Why? Because Trump will be damaging, or just ineffectual? Or are you a Hillary fan and think reverting to Constitutional principles is a step backwards? Or do you think no matter who is President, and no matter what the majority wants, it ain’t gonna happen?

        Are you persuaded by what you think the majority wants or what you think the “elites” want?

      • Marten

        I prefer Jill Stein, instead of those Frankenstein”s

  • Praetor

    Well, it looks like crazy and delusional is not exclusive to the Hillary and Billary show. To be sure TPTB are like a virus and will infect everything they touch.

    As always the change to this system of thing will have to start at the bottom and work its way to the top. It will be the poor who will revolt against the machine!!!

  • robt

    More proof of the collapse. Too many ‘Libertarian’ votes defecting to Trump instead of the Other … must … stop … now …

  • NoMeansNo

    Why is Gary Johnson their candidate either? This guy has long passed his ‘pull date.’ He used to be a cognizant individual. Now? He is a babbling fool who looks like he’s on some kind of pharmaceutical. The Libertarian Party (what is left of it) blew it by not nominating John McAfee.

    • mary

      Yes, because McAfee isn’t on some kind of pharmaceutical. 😉

    • Paul_Morphy

      The Democrat thinks they’re your mommy.
      The Republican thinks they’re your daddy.
      The Libertarian just wants you grown up and on your own!

      • NoMeansNo

        Used to be that way with the Libertarian Party. Now? don’t know what their bag is, but it is no longer self-sufficiency. I think it might now be drooling!

  • john cummins

    LOL. Weld a Libertarian, LOLOLOL.

  • Praetor

    Libertarian Party is an oxymoron!!!

  • Paul_Morphy

    The article quotes him as saying that he knows Hillary well, has worked with her professionally and believes her to be a “person of high moral character.”

    End of story. He can’t have much worthwhile to offer.

    The current presidential ticket of the LP is doing to the libertarian movement what Trump is doing to the Republican Party. This year is the first time since Reagan that I have not voted for the top ticket for the LP. If the Trump movement succeeds, the LP is doomed, as is the RP. RIP to both!

  • jt kong

    To give you some idea of the brain power of this guy he believed he would win the election if only his party could have been part of the presidential debate. LOL. Then after not qualifying, rather than do everything he could to increase the Libertarian vote, he turned full shill for Clinton, the role he was assigned to play from the beginning. Johnson (aka the scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz) and this clown are a disgrace to their Party. I can only hope that the stooges that supported them are outed and driven back to the democratic party where they can all work together on Hillary and the Weiner’s Defense Fund.

  • NJguy – Proudly Deplorable

    Even the libertarians are rigged.

  • Haywood Jablome

    Hey Weld, next time you have a thought…let it go.

  • rahrog

    Some of us smelled this stank years ago.

    Bill Weld, former MA governor who beat Kerry, used to stand for something. Nowadays, he stands for anything and everything. Bought and paid for like all of them by the same conglomerates? I used to follow politics until I understood: the people never stood a chance. I fear what the people will do when they regain their memory… and yet, it needs to be done. http://www.patriotledger.com/x23931057/From-the-Archives-Gov-Weld-dives-into-the-Charles

  • Charles Savoie

    Weld comes from the old-line Massachusetts family that was big in the former White, Weld & Company investment bank, which was on a par with Kidder, Peabody & Company. Friends I must inform you that the wealthy Boston based families are in allegiance to the British Royal family and these families are well represented in The Pilgrims Society, which is the hidden control group over the CFR, this includes Winthrops, Aldriches, Cabots, Bradfords, Howlands, Warners and more. In January 2011 my site http://www.silverstealers.net went up and in June 2011 they responded with http://www.pilgrimsociety.org which find at their site a 2012 PDF condemning my research into their Society. Since they have the top attorneys in the country as members, like James Zirin (Amerada Hess fortune) why haven’t they sued me? Because I have neither lied nor exaggerated about them. Weld is also in a family group back of the $29 trillion State Street Corporation, which is connected to The Prince of Wales, an inner circle Pilgrims Society member. Weld may or may not be a member in any case he’s in their orbit. State Street is a major holder of CME which owns the silver suppressing COMEX.

      Your online book “The Silver Stealers” is required reading! Here’s a quote from CFR godfather David Rockefeller:

      “Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the
      best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as
      ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to
      build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one
      world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud
      of it.”

      — David Rockefeller (CFR chairman emeritus), “Memoirs”, 2002

      Other CFR members include: Bill Clinton, Dick Cheney, Jacob Lew, Ashton Carter, Janet Yellen, Lloyd Blankfein, Laurence Fink, Jamie Dimon, Lynn Forester de Rothschild, and George Soros. Also every Fed chairman since WW2 and most secretaries of State, Treasury, Defense, CIA, etc. See member lists at cfr dot org.

    The Libertarian Party is obviously bankrupt in terms of libertarian candidates. Time to shut it down, boys.

  • polistra24

    Pot is effectively legal in most states, so the Legalize Pot Party no longer has a purpose. Sometimes an organization can be repurposed, but I don’t see the value in repurposing LP as just another DNC branch office. All corporations and media and schools and unions and NGOs and churches are already DNC branch offices. No need for another.
