It has been somewhat of a tradition here at CHT that we attempt to cover outside the mainstream and otherwise non-traditional candidates. In that spirit, here is a suggestion I ran across on Facebook.
It’s is from Orly Taitz’s website, and it is not clear how “on board” Gen. Vallely is with the idea from the e-mail conversation she posts. The bulk of it is a call to action from Stand Up America which is apparently Gen. Vallely’s organization, but it also sounds like it could easily be a campaign platform. You may recognize Gen. Vallely as a frequent Fox News commentator on military matters. He earlier said he would consider running as Trump’s running mate.
The “call to action” is a mix bag of good and bad. He endorses the “Fair Tax” which would be a disaster, but he also endorses abolishing the “Departments of Energy, Education, (and) HEW” and dissolving “the EPA and IRS (and) Federal Reserve.” He surprisingly says we should “Cease this strategy of nation building in the Middle East as well as supporting corrupt and ineffective international organizations like the United Nations,” but is also excessively concerned about the threat from Iran. He seems possibly to be a John Bolton style nationalist interventionists but without being a neocon. His Stand Up America website contains links to The Weekly Standard and David Horowitz which isn’t encouraging.
What might make a Vallely candidacy intriguing however, is that he has openly questioned the issue of Obama’s eligibility to be President, has called for his impeachment, and has questioned the authenticity of the long form birth certificate.
The campaign needs an open birther in my opinion to keep the issue out there. So far the current candidates have been completely ball-less on the issue, especially since the release of the long form birth certificate which may or may not be authentic.
