As Predicted: Democrats and Media Waste No Time Going After Third Party Election Threats

As Predicted: Democrats and Media Waste No Time Going After Third Party Election Threats

“No Labels, the political outfit preparing to run a ‘unity’ ticket in 2024 that Democratic strategists and Never-Trump Republican operatives fear will siphon votes from President Joe Biden, is what’s known as a dark-money group.”

Less than two days ago, I cited a new poll from Emerson College which shows that a third party candidate would pose a serious political threat to Joe Biden.

I closed by saying that we should expect Democrats and the media to aggressively go after any third party threats. I just didn’t expect it to happen this fast.

Let’s take a look at some of these articles.

From Mother Jones:

No Labels Exposed: Here’s a List of Donors Funding Its Effort To Disrupt the 2024 Race

No Labels, the political outfit preparing to run a “unity” ticket in 2024 that Democratic strategists and Never-Trump Republican operatives fear will siphon votes from President Joe Biden, is what’s known as a dark-money group. Unlike political parties, political action committees, and House, Senate, and presidential candidates, it is not required to reveal who is funding it.

And No Labels, which says it intends to raise $70 million to possibly place a third-party candidate on the presidential ballot next year, refuses to disclose who is financing this project. But Mother Jones has obtained a list of 36 wealthy contributors and corporate high-rollers who last year wrote big checks to support No Labels’ effort to win 2024 ballot lines in states across the nation.

This roster includes past and present chief executives of major companies, including Loews Corporation (a vast conglomerate), Fluor (an engineering and construction giant), Abry Partners (a private equity firm), SailPoint (a tech firm), and Fortress Investment Group.

Got that? Dark, corporate money. How dare they!

In case you missed the point, here’s Politico:

No Labels declines to reveal just who is funding its third party bid

No Labels’ bid to run a third party presidential candidate in 2024 has sparked a number of questions about political motivations. Chief among them: Who, exactly, is paying for this thing?

The centrist group consists of a constellation of entities, some of which disclose donor names. But the main one is a nonprofit which, unlike political parties, does not have to reveal the names of its funders. And in an interview with POLITICO, its CEO, Nancy Jacobson, declined to do so, saying simply that it was a “mixed” pool of individual contributors including “people that want to help our country.”…

No Labels’ refusal to reveal donor identities has worsened tensions in Washington, where a smattering of Democratic and anti-Donald Trump conservatives have accused the group of potentially kneecapping President Biden’s reelection.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. used to be a hero on the left. Now, Rolling Stone Magazine wants you to know he is basically an ultra-MAGA figure who is totally aligned with Marjorie Taylor Greene:

Pro-RFK Jr. Super PAC Has Deep Ties to Marjorie Taylor Greene, George Santos

Last month, supporters of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s presidential bid created a Super PAC titled Heal the Divide. On its website, the group — whose name is borrowed from Kennedy’s own campaign slogan — advises voters that “Only Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. can unite the Nation to start healing America,” and allows visitors to donate both in dollars and cryptocurrency.

There’s nothing abnormal about a candidate getting a Super PAC, even a candidate making a long-shot bid like Kennedy’s. What is abnormal, however, is that Kennedy is running as a Democrat in the Democratic primary, while the creators of the Super PAC have a deeply pro-Donald Trump bent — including ties to arch-MAGA officials such as Marjorie Taylor Greene, George Santos, and Herschel Walker.

As I have reminded repeatedly, these are the same people who have spent the last several years claiming to be the defenders of ‘our democracy.’

It’s all a lie. They will abandon their principles, formerly cherished figures, anything or anyone, that threatens their ability to hold on to power.

they know if they have to split the 81 million votes ( wink, wink, nudge, nudge) they are going to have to come up with more votes.

    “come up with. more votes”

    It’s not as if they don’t have any experience doing that.

    There’s a practical limit to that — in some precincts in 2020 they had about 110% of the registered vote. They get away with that in certain wards in Chicago and Philadelphia but they can’t do that everywhere.

    What I suspect they’ll do in 2024 is take away votes from their opponents. President Rutabaga will still get his 81 million; the Pubs and the third parties will be “disappointed” and “dismayed” that their supporters “didn’t turn out.” We saw hints of this in Houston in 2022, where Pub precincts didn’t have ballot paper delivered on Election Day. Expect more shenanigans like that, and shenanigans with the Dominion machines. What Chicago ward heelers knew how to do with the voting machines of the 1940s and the punch cards of the 1980s, they now know how to do with electronic voting panels.

    Their 81 million is baked into the cake. So is the opposition 65 million. That’s what I see coming.

    Yeah. There’s no way that corrupt dotard-marionette, Biden, won more votes than the sainted and deified narcissist-incompetent, Obama — the Dumb-o-crats’ most popular politician in their wretched history.

    Sadly, we won’t get to see Biden’s vote total in the 2024 presidential election. There’s no way the dotard makes it to the podium at the 2024 Dumb-o-crat National Convention, given his rapid physical, mental and neurological deterioration. So, conservatives would be wise to start prepping a battle plan against the Dumb-o-crats’ heir apparent, the greasy and incompetent Newsolini, who, despite his manifest incompetence, shouldn’t be taken lightly, given the realities of the electoral map in the Dumbs’ favor, as well as the fact that the FBI/Deep State, mainstream media and Big Tech will be engaged in their usual chicanery, sabotage and machinations on behalf of the Dumb-o-crats presidential candidate.

Not just ties, but DEEP TIES to MTG.
The horror!
Good grief.

I understand this is a minor point, Mr. LaChance, but I am confused by the reference in your headline to “…Democrats and Media…” as if they are two distinct groups. Is there some material difference between these groups?

I’d be surprised if they didn’t. Perot showed pretty clearly that it’s a necessity to stop a third party on your side.

Texas laws make it nearly impossible to get a third party on the ballot.

    Most States have fairly significant ballot access requirements for a political party to meet. Without a figurehead or leading candidate with real grassroots appeal it is very difficult.

    Trump could have done it IMO. Had he spent the time from Biden’s Inaugural to this past February rallying his most devoted supporters that would be two full years of organization in advance of his ’24 campaign launch. He wouldn’t have to worry about a primary contest or the funds expended in it. He would have had the full backing of the MAGA party all the way to Nov ’24.

    He had a big enough platform, the money and lets be honest the media coverage it would have generated just from the media fascination with ‘what’s Trump up to today’. That would have created a lasting change with the advent of a grassroots movement honed into a legit, well funded, enthusiastic third-party. That would have been a nightmare scenario for the DC establishment.

Kennedy Jr.’s 2005 article “Deadly Immunity” originally appeared in Rolling Stone but after extraordinary pressure from big pharma, the article was removed.

Rollin Stone now fully woke against Kennedy.

I wonder if Kennedy will be allowed on the ballot.

RE: They will abandon their principles, formerly cherished figures, anything or anyone, that threatens their ability to hold on to power.

I am surprised that we still celebrate the birthday of that “content of their character” heretic.

As long as the vote tabulators in key states remain in Democrat hands they will never lose another national election.

    CommoChief in reply to Halcyon Daze. | June 25, 2023 at 5:38 pm

    Short term maybe. Long term? Not so much. We have State elections which is why the d/prog control of tabulation in blue enclaves is important.

    The electoral college math is going to change significantly after the next census. For example both CA and NY are on pace to lose 4 congressional districts (CD) each while TX and FL are set to gain 4 CD apiece. Many other deep blue States are hemorrhaging voters as well. That’s on top of the 4-6 CD retained by blue States and denied to Red States after last minute ‘adjustment’ for the 2020 census. Once implemented these changes will alter the path to 270 making it easier for a GoP victory.

I thought those on the right were Ultra Maga. Now we are “Arch Maga? I can’t keep up

Ha! I read that as “Media waste.”

Seems accurate to me.

Third-party presidential attempts are a fascinating item in US history., though never cause enough of a political ripple to matter. I’ve watched a couple of No Labels zoom presentations in which their staff presented the plan to run a “unity” candidate…..but only if it appears that 1) voters appear to want it, and 2) it might be successful. Otherwise NL claims that they will stand down and not run a candidate.

I’m skeptical of NL’s efforts, especially about their ability to get on a sufficient number of states’ ballots, though I assume that NL means well. Whether these efforts are funded by “dark money” shouldn’t be the issue that one major party claims it is. But clearly NL’s very existence threatens this major party’s retention of its power over the country. That in itself should be a great concern to all Americans.

It sounds to me like they’ll do anything to protect their pedophile
