New Book says “Neutral” Americans Elect Wooed Jon Huntsman for President while AE Leaders Sung His Praises

This Just In: did you know that Newt Gingrich is impressed with himself?

Double Down, a newly released book by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, is filled with a fair amount of stale information about the presidential election of 2012. If you look hard enough, however, you’ll find some information that is both interesting and [...]

Constitution Party Proves Jesus Wants His Followers To Butt Out Of Politics

The Christian god’s plan for victory for the Constitution Party is to have all good Christians take a long, hard nap in 2013, so that, unlike all the unholy voters who made it to the polls this year, they will be well-rested for the 2014 congressional elections. [...]

Could 1787 Be A Worthwhile New Political Party?

1787, a new political party, proposes having a National Convention in September next year, in Philadelphia, to sort out issues like these. Perhaps it will, and perhaps the result will be a political party worth supporting. At present, however, 1787 looks like a poorly conceived mess. [...]

Government Political Donation Site Goes Dark and Stays Dark, Keeping Big Money in the Dark

It may seem like a long time ago, but it was not so long.

While it claimed that it was standing against the forces of “big money” and demanded that other political parties [...]

The Can Kicks Back Campus Grassroots Effort: Dried Up

“The Can Kicks Back” depicts itself as a social movement of young people who all “individually” decided in 2012 taxing more poor people, taxing corporations less, and cutting social programs is a keen idea, then joined together in a grassroots firestorm sweeping the nation in a grand populist melange of mixed metaphors. That’s the story [...]

As Americans Elect Continues to Wind Down, Watch 1787 For America

Indications of the last two months are that the privatized presidential election corporation called Americans Elect is shuttering its state operations while maintaining a nominal national presence. The latest Americans Elect state affiliate to go defunct is that of Maine; an annual report from Americans Elect in Maine was due at the end of May [...]

Grassroots? Maine No Labels "ConnectUs" Forum is Busy… With Spam

In the summer of 2012, the DC Beltway corporation No Labels tried to create the appearance of a grassroots movement sweeping across the country in support of tax cuts for corporations and social security cuts for people. Its tool: ConnectUs, a social network platform on which people could earn points by talking about the necessity [...]

The Secretary Of State Is Participating In Anti-Drone Protests?!?

Who else but Green Party leaders would dare to suggest that the U.S. federal government shouldn’t have the power to spy on people without a search warrant, or execute people without trial? [...]

Peter Ackerman Makes April 2013 Public Appearance as Chairman of Americans Elect

Is the Americans Elect corporate brand of privatized elections dead? Is it sold off to bidders?

Not if you go by its April 2 corporate filing with Rhode Island, which as we mentioned yesterday shows that Joshua Levine and Kahlil Byrd are still involved in the organization.

Not if you go by Minnesota Public Radio’s [...]
