CBE PRESS LLC Endorses Gary Johnson for President

Aleppo schleppo! So what if Gary Johnson had a mental block when asked on MSNBC how he would address the refugee crisis in the war-torn Syrian city as president?! Remember, President Obama promised to intervene in Syria if President, Bashar Hafez al-Assad used chemical weapons on his own people in Aleppo, as he did back in 2013 and again last August, according to Amnesty International. At that time, CBE didn’t agree with the president backing himself into a corner before ultimately reneging on the pledge. It was a total policy “clusterfuck” with reverberations still being felt regarding U.S. credibility to this day.

Also remember, it was Hillary Clinton who mislead the American public about the Benghazi attack and arguably led the spin/damage control effort in covering up mistakes that the U.S. State Department made under her watch in providing security for Ambassador Chris Stevens who needlessly died in the attack.

We cannot forget that Trump the Chump sees Vladimir Putin as a great leader, has openly lied about his original stance on the second Iraq war, and is so shaky that most agree he shouldn’t have the “football,” given his penchant for personal vendettas, meltdowns and temper tantrums.

Let’s face it, the foreign policy gaffes Johnson has made under the hot lights of an MSNBC or Chris Matthews “Hardball”  interview where he wasn’t able to identify a world leader that he respects (Bill Weld did a great job jumping in with Germany’s Angela Merkel) pales in comparison to the real world policy mistakes that the Obama administration, with a Clinton-run State Department, made in the first 4 years. Hillary’s flitting around the world also made a peddling influence for the Clinton Foundation.

Ideal Foreign Policy Under Gary Johnson as President

Johnson and Weldt’s foreign policy essentially mirror the American public’s preference. We don’t want to continue to be the world’s policemen. We don’t want to continue to send our troops into harm’s way. We want fair trade policies that level the competitive playing field without crawling into our shell and becoming isolationists in a world where all economies are entwined. The two men are capable and would certainly surround themselves with competent professionals. I believe they would look at problems that need solutions with a fresh perspective that is not constricted by party politics or special interest groups, while protecting our personal liberties and reducing the size and scope of federal government intervention.

This past summer, CBE endorsed Bernie Sanders; not because we agreed with his socialist agenda, but at that time, we simply felt that he was the only candidate as close to honest as a politician can be and that he was definitely a man of conviction who believes strongly in his view of a better USA. It didn’t hurt that he was absolutely behind ending cannabis prohibition and all of the injustices that have disproportionately fallen upon minorities and those from lower socio-economic backgrounds.

Now that we are down to two-party candidates, which it seems the large majority of Americans do not trust or respect, in addition to the Libertarian and Green Party candidates, it’s a no-brainer for CBE to endorse Gary Johnson and Bill Weld. They also want to end prohibition once and for all, and they represent the interests of all Americans—not big government or business and the military industrial complex who have gradually reduced and impeded upon our civil liberties, rights and ability to run the USA with a government that is by the people and for the people.

It’s time for a real change and for us all to take our country back from the invisible hand.

  1. Disappointing to say the least…the only qualified candidate is Hillary Clinton…by endorsing Johnson, you put Trump in a position to win. We must ban together to ensure this insane person (Trump) does not get anywhere near the White House. I appreciate your trying to go off line with this endorsement but lets get real and be adults here…a vote for Johnson is a vote for Trump. Period. Wake Up for America’s Sake!

    1. Yes we do, and we believe its time for a third party in America (preferably independent and centrist), but we also dream of a more utopian world without armies! For a myriad of reasons and personal beliefs, I can not in good conscience vote for either Clinton or Trump and would rather vote for real change then more of the same.

      But you go Caprice, thank god we live in the US of A.

      1. Perhaps it is time for a third party in America – but perhaps that third party should do the actual hard work of becoming a viable third party all year long and not only during elections when its easy to get some traction & attention. What has Gary Johnson (and Jill Stein, for that matter) been doing since the last Presidential election? Have they been organizing people into a real movement and weighing in on ALL of the actual issues facing the Executive Branch? Or do they just go about their daily, self-serving business & wait til they can get the attention of the people who have also been doing anything/everything except participate in the daily machinations of their government…Maybe if he was actually working on this all year, Ron Johnson might know what Aleppo is. (The fact that you think its NBD that he had NO idea what Aleppo is, is telling, and characteristic of single-issue voters who commonly misunderstand the complexities of the role of President or Governor who must take into consideration the myriad thorny issues that someone advocating for just ONE issue like cannabis reform (or LGBT, Prison Reform, Gun Safety, Environmental Reform or fill-in-the-blank) doesn’t have to consider. What a luxury that must be! I agree with Caprice. Its quite clear that you misunderstand the horrific damage that a race-baiting, misogynistic, media-manipulating, misinformed, lying, tax-cheating, pro-eugenics, entitled, old, failed businessman who thinks that his white genes ARE superior & being President is the same as running a business, can do to our Democracy as we know it. Donald Trump is a world-wide embarrassment and monumental disaster and his election would create complete chaos in the global economy and advocating to support an unelectable, unprepared neophyte like Ron Johnson is irresponsible and reveals a dearth of understanding re: the context of history and what it takes to create real change in a democracy.

  2. A vote for Gary Johnson is a vote for Trump. If your good conscience requires you to vote for Johnson, have your brain remind your conscience that you are one of the people helping Trump.

    1. Thanks for your two cents Tom, but no vote isn’t an option either. CBE is all for pushing for a centrist, personal liberty first third party to emerge from the train wreck that our two party system has become. A vote for Trump or Clinton represents a vote for the status quo, no thanks!
