When former Massachusetts governor William Weld recently announced that he will be running as a Republican Party presidential primary challenger against Donald Trump in 2020, most conservatives who heard the news probably said: “Who?”
Weld isn’t exactly a relevant figure in contemporary American politics. After ending his tenure as Massachusetts governor in 1997, Weld cashed out with a lucrative Wall Street job while serving as the inspiration for Mitt Romney’s lackluster governorship from 2003-2007.
He re-emerged as a Libertarian Vice Presidential candidate under dope-brained Gary Johnson in 2016, where he promoted Hillary Clinton in the latter days of that farce-plagued abomination of a candidacy.
“I’ve known her for 40 years. I’ve worked with her. I know her well professionally, I know her well personally. I know her to be a person of high moral character, a reliable person and an honest person,” Weld said to Rachel Maddow of MSNBC in the final days before the 2016 election.
In addition, Weld is on the record supporting the Iraq War, gay marriage, gun control, affirmative action, Roe vs. Wade, the Patriot Act, and carbon taxes. He even publicly endorsed Barack Obama for President in 2008. How could such a man believe that he has a chance in Hades of upending Trump with beliefs that are so far removed from the modern conservative consensus?
Weld’s ace in the hole may be his long-standing relationship with the Koch Brothers, whose cosmopolitan globalist liberaltarian beliefs are similar to Weld’s.
The ties between Weld and the Koch’s can be deciphered through the tentacles of their massive and ubiquitous network. The regular coverage over at Reason Magazine, a Koch rag through-and-through since its inception, has escalated from frequent to almost daily since Weld announced his Presidential candidacy. Weld was featured as the keynote speaker of the Koch-funded Students for Liberty Northeast Regional Conference in 2017. Weld has been in bed with the Koch’s for so long that even radical libertarian Murray Rothbard commented on him as an example of a “Big Government Libertarian” who he reviled before his death in 1995.
“Only his pro-gay agenda accounts for the ardor… toward Massachusetts Governor Weld, whom they embrace as, in the current slogan, ‘fiscally conservative but socially tolerant.’ (The ‘fiscally conservative’ refers to a one-time budget cut followed, the next time around, by a compensatory budget increase.) ’Socially tolerant,’ in the current atmosphere, means a devotion to the entire Left cultural agenda, from gay rights to compulsory multicultural propaganda and condomization in the public schools,” Rothbard wrote of Weld.
The Kochs stabbed the Republican Party in the back during the 2018 election cycle, choosing to support far-left Democrats instead who supported open borders. According to PBS, they spent up to $400 million in the mid-term election cycle but much of that money went to Democrats wishing to flood the USA with third-world migrants whose cheap labor oligarchs like the Kochs can exploit for greater profit margins.
Their lack of support of the Republican ticket undoubtedly contributed to the losses in 2018 when the GOP needed all hands on deck to fend off leftist extremism. Through their pro-illegal immigration LIBRE Initiative, the Koch network sent mailers to up to 100,000 homes in favor of far-left legislators such as Reps. Ben Ray Luján and Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico, Democratic Reps. Raul Ruiz and Pete Aguilar of California, and Democratic Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware.
“Thank you Sen. Coons for supporting a permanent solution for Dreamers,” one Koch-funded mailer read. “More than 90% of Americans want protection for the Dreamers.”
They even tried to knock off Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) for supporting immigration controls and opposing globalist trade deals, but ultimately failed in their efforts to buoy the Democratic incumbent. They are likely to fail if they throw money at Weld, who is a relic of the politics of yesteryear that Trump was elected to finish off. The President is well-aware of their plotting against his ‘America First’ agenda.
The globalist Koch Brothers, who have become a total joke in real Republican circles, are against Strong Borders and Powerful Trade. I never sought their support because I don’t need their money or bad ideas. They love my Tax & Regulation Cuts, Judicial picks & more. I made…..

….them richer. Their network is highly overrated, I have beaten them at every turn. They want to protect their companies outside the U.S. from being taxed, I’m for America First & the American Worker – a puppet for no one. Two nice guys with bad ideas. Make America Great Again!

The Koch Bros will likely need to find a better horse than Weld if they want to derail the Trump train and push America back to the globalist status quo in 2020 and beyond.
Trump Campaign Manager Brad Parscale’s Confidence Could Jeopardize Re-Election Chances
Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale is getting criticized harder than ever after the rally fiasco in Tulsa, Okla. on Saturday.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has bragged about far-left activists using TikTok to trick the campaign into bragging about an inflated number of ticket requests for the rally, which drew considerably less than capacity.
She clowned Parscale in a Twitter post on Saturday:
KPop allies, we see and appreciate your contributions in the fight for justice too 😌
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) June 21, 2020
While Ocasio-Cortez wants to brag about TikTok youngsters sabotaging the rally, it was really Parscale’s own incompetence that resulted in the embarrassment.
He bragged about the number of sign-ups without seemingly ever verifying their authenticity:

There will be precautions for the heat and bottled water as well.

This makes Parscale’s notion of a ultra-effective “death star” driving the Trump re-election operation seem all the more laughable:
For nearly three years we have been building a juggernaut campaign (Death Star). It is firing on all cylinders. Data, Digital, TV, Political, Surrogates, Coalitions, etc.
In a few days we start pressing FIRE for the first time. pic.twitter.com/aJgCNfx1m0

“I think people liked the myth that teenagers could take down the Trump Death Star, but I would not be surprised that the Trump campaign was seeing those numbers and decided they didn’t need to do follow-up calls because their numbers were so good,” veteran digital staffer Melissa Ryan said about Parscale’s rally snafu.
“If you’re doing campaign data, you should be able to realize when your system is getting gamed. If you’re getting a flood of signups, if your first instinct is to announce it on Twitter rather than check the tires, that’s just incompetence,” Ryan added.
All sides of the Trump movement are apparently getting fed up with Parscale’s incompetence as well. Former Trump 2016 campaign manager Corey Lewandowski spoke out publicly about comedy of errors that were made due to Parscale’s woeful stewardship of the campaign.
“I think a fundamental mistake was made,” Lewandowski said. “Overpromising and underdelivering is the biggest mistake you can make in politics.”
“I lived this as you know, I did this when candidate Trump was running. We won 38 primaries and caucuses under my stewardship, obviously all due to Donald Trump, but we never did something like this,” he continued, referring to the 2016 campaign when he was at the helm.
“And what that means is we have to go back and re-evaluate the system in which people were getting those tickets and determining if they were real, if they were robots, and putting additional protocols in place so this doesn’t happen again,” Lewandowski added.
Even Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, the power couple known as “Javanka,” are angry at Parscale over his failures. Javanka has been close with Parscale, backing up his rise within the Trump White House, since before the 2016 campaign when Parscale was a website builder for Trump with zero political experience.
“Jared and Ivanka are pissed at Brad over promising on crowd size,” a campaign source close to Javanka reportedly said following the rally.
Big League Politics has been reporting on Parscale’s management for months now:
Some of President Donald Trump’s top confidants are urging for campaign manager Brad Parscale to be fired and replaced with someone deemed by observers as more competent and qualified heading into this year’s election against former Vice President Joe Biden.
“People within his inner circle continue to question Brad’s ability to bring the campaign down the home stretch because of his inexperience,” a longtime adviser to the president told the New York Post.
“There’s no strategy, there’s no messaging,” the adviser added.
A Republican insider noted that Parscale was put into the position because of his connections to Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, who has been pushing the administration to the Left throughout his tenure as senior adviser. Parscale has even brought disgraced Bush-era globalist Karl Rove into the fold.
“Jared put Brad in charge of the whole thing because he is loyal to the family — not because he is a political operator,” the GOP insider said. “Brad has zero experience running a national campaign.”
Parscale has been cashing in, living a lavish lifestyle while Trump’s re-election campaign spins its wheels.
“The money stuff rankles people in a major way,” a long-time GOP campaigner told the Post, referencing Parscale’s $2.4 million mansion on a Fort Lauderdale, Fla beachfront, his new $400,000 yacht, and a stable of luxury automobiles.
