The Unpopularity of The Can Kicks Back, Part I: Twitter

“The Can Kicks Back” depicts itself as a movement of young people who “individually… had all reached the same decision” that taxing more poor people and cutting corporate tax rates while cutting social security, medicaid and medicare was a really good idea. That’s what “The Can Kicks Back” says about itself. The Can Kicks Back [...]

No Labels/Draft Walker/Peterson Clone Corp called The Can Kicks Back is Coming… Track It

Calling itself a “movement” of “millenials,” a website called The Can Kicks Back (TKCB) hasn’t yet made a public launch, but it is already at work behind the scenes to set up its organizational infrastructure.

Oddly enough, in a posting on a jobs board TKCB Communications Director Jake Parent reveals that it is anything but [...]

Americans Elect and No Labels Favorite David Walker Rushes to Praise Paul Ryan with $37 Trillion Worth of the Sillies

Back in 2011, David Walker was such a darling of the No Labels corporation that No Labels engineered a Draft David Walker for President internet poll campaign.

Draft Walker Fever Ran Cold: Independent Expenditure Committee Reports No Expenditures

On the very first day the Committee to Get Walker Running announced its existence to the public, the DC beltway publication Politico declared: “Walker Fever: It’s Spreading.” The basis for author Alexander Burns’ diagnosis of a “fever” for David Walker as an Americans Elect presidential candidate was the emergence of the Committee with Yoni Gruskin [...]

National Campus Director Blake Wright the Latest Americans Elect Staffer to Violate Neutrality

Let’s get right to the point: Three weeks ago, circumstantial evidence suggested that Americans Elect had violated its neutrality policy regarding presidential candidates. Today, Americans Elect has inadvertently confirmed it.

Americans Elect, the 501c4 corporation that wants to run its very own candidate for President of the United States, refuses to identify the people who [...]

Flaming Out, Draft Walker Campaign tries to Jump on Slightly Less Flaming Buddy Roemer Campaign

Out of three originally scheduled ballots, there is only one ballot left in the Americans Elect presidential primary process, because no candidate to date has qualified. The privatize-social-security draft candidate David Walker is painfully far behind. In order to get on the Americans Elect ballot, the rules stipulate a candidate must obtain 1,000 votes of [...]

Another Americans Elect Campus Leader recruited to join Draft David Walker Campaign

Americans Elect is supposed to be neutral regarding presidential candidates. But two weeks ago, I shared indications that a resource developed by Americans Elect — the Americans Elect Campus Leaders recruited by Americans Elect National Campus Director Nick Troiano — was being used by a campaign for David Walker for President — headed by the [...]

Document: “Grassroots” Committee to Draft David Walker for President intends to take Big Money

The Committee to Get Walker Running — a draft committee trying to get David Walker on the presidential ballot through Americans Elect — calls itself a “grassroots and youth-driven initiative” in public:

Grassroots? In private, the committee informed the Federal Election Commission on April 24 that “This committee intends to make unlimited independent expenditures, [...]

4 Days Left to Americans Elect 2nd Ballot Deadline, No Candidate halfway to Qualifying, and still getting Coverage

Americans Elect Rules 2.2.2 and 3.2.2 stipulate that any draft or declared presidential candidate wishing to qualify for any of its three rounds of presidential primary voting must obtain sufficient clicks of support on its website 7 days before a round of voting occurs. The sufficient amount varies according to who you are. If you’re [...]

Every Identifiable Student in new Draft David Walker Video is Americans Elect Campus Leader

Americans Elect is supposed to be neutral. But is the infrastructure of Americans Elect being used to promote David Walker for President?

Look for yourself. Watch this new “Draft Walker” video featuring a series of college students:

I can’t positively identify all of these students. But without a doubt in my heart, I see [...]

Committee: Vote David Walker for President First. You’ll get his Policy Ideas later.

The campaign to Draft David Walker for President is an awfully strange one in many ways, right down to David Walker himself making an appearance on national TV to declare that he wasn’t running for president, and he wasn’t encouraging anyone to vote for him for president, except back when he repeatedly did, but anyway [...]
