AMERICAN MAV PRESIDENTIAL POWER RANKINGS

Well, well, what a pool of candidates we have now.  For the Republicans, candidates seem to be stumbling over themselves to announce their official bid for the Presidency.  While on the left, the Democrats are having internal eruptions with progressive discontent for Hillary.  

So, let's proceed with hashing out the latest American Mav rankings.

American Mav Power Rankings as of June 22, 2015:




AMERICAN MAVERICK PRESIDENTIAL POWER RANKINGS

Republicans:  The establishment's golden boy, moderate Jeb Bush finally made his big announcement.  You could hear a collected moan from millions of conservatives when Jebby kicked off his run.  Then, we had billionaire, TV guru Donald Trump through his whig into the pool of GOP hopefuls.  Trump's speech seemed to pass the initial conservative sniff test, but speculation remains if this big time realtor can make a serious run for the White House.  Of the existing candidates, Carly Fiorina performed very well amidst the heavy pool of testosterone ridden candidates.  Rubio had a little trouble managing negative publicity about his traffic tickets. Here's the way it looks for now:

Rank     Republican Candidate
   1        Ted Cruz           +4
   2        Jeb Bush           +2
   3        Rand Paul          ---
   4        Marco Rubio       -3
   5        Donald Trump   New
   6        Scott Walker      -4
   7        Carly Fiorina      +1
   8        Ben Carson         -1
   9        Mike Huckabee   ---
 10        Rick Perry           -2
 11        Rick Santorum    New
 12        Lindsey Graham  New

Democrats:  Oh boy, Hillary tried to jump start her campaign again on an island outside of New York City.  She did not get major traction.  Most networks carried her second attempt to declare.  The crowd in attendance was controlled.  And, the media was not allowed to photograph vacant parking lots and areas where there were not attendees.  On the progressive side of the Dem world, Bernie Sanders continues to draw large crowds for his speeches.  And, he is beginning to have a steady flow of campaign cash from progressives.  Meek little Lincoln Chafee made his announcement with little fanfare.(BOLD= declared candidate)

Rank     Democrat Candidate
   1        Hillary Clinton       ---
   2        Bernie Sanders      +1
   3        Elizabeth Warren    -1
   4        Martin O'Malley     -1
   5        Lincoln Chafee     New 
   6        Jim Webb              -1
   7        Joe Biden               -1

The American Maverick will provide periodic updates of how candidates are performing for their respective party nomination.  Candidates that have declared will have greater weighting.  Because you have to be in it, to win it.  All rankings consider how candidates jockey for attention, handle media stress and overall how they keep their message and candidacy at the forefront of American voters.

END EX-IM BANK, NOW!

The Washington beltway is awash in cronyism and political favor.  Politicians are exposed from time to time cutting a deal that in one way, shape or form translates into a favorable vote or appointment. 

Now with the pending expiration of the Export-Import Bank charter, will Congress vote to end the corrupt program or continue it as a tool of political power brokers?

The Export-Import Bank was created by Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1934 under Executive Order, then chartered by Congress in 1945.  Its purpose was to provide credit services to American businesses to benefit from international trade deals and to protect jobs. 

Well that was the original intent.  Now Ex-Im Bank stands as a wasteland of taxpayer money.  Ex-Im Bank has ballooned to hold credit at taxpayer expense.  Americans backed $51 Billion in Ex-Im credit in 2007.  As of 2014, Ex-Im costs taxpayer's $134 Billion.  That's your money being poured into deals that continue to favor foreign corporations far beyond the core benefit of American businesses and jobs.

Today Ex-Im Bank credit is leveraging deals that favor foreign businesses and short hand many American businesses.  Here's a prime example.  Delta Airlines must buy Boeing jets at market price.  However, Ex-Im Bank makes subsidized loans to Air China for the same jets, at a discounted price.  This puts Delta at a distinct cost disadvantage versus an international competitor.  This also impacts American jobs.  It is estimated that Ex-Im involvement with foreign airline deals have lost over 7,500 domestic jobs.

Another concern of Ex-Im, is the money going to economic allies of the United States?  Not exactly.  Over the past seven years, $23.9 Billion in loans were granted to politically connected firms in Russia, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and China.

What about the internal corruption of Ex-Im Bank?  Yes, the cronyism runs deep and far beyond the politics of the loans.  Several senior level bank employees have been implicated in accepting cash payments, kickbacks and bribes, while other staffers have faced criticism for accepting lavish trips and other gifts from businesses seeking Ex-Im assistance.  Currently, there are 31 lawsuits pending against Ex-Im for a broad range of violations.

HILLARY BACKS EX-IM BANK
On a highly-charged level of cronyism, the Clinton Foundation dipped into Ex-Im too.  A Moroccan mining company, OCP, received a Ex-Im Bank loan guarantee of $92 Million through Citibank to purchase equipment from two American companies.  The Washington Free Beacon and Politico reported OCP contributing $6 Million directly to the Clinton Foundation.  OCP's controversial financial dealings are now being scrutinized for violation of U.S. and international trade law.  Here's the full story by the Washington Free Beacon.

So, let's stop this tool of the beltway insiders.  Raise your voice to Congress.  Tell them cronyism must be halted, here and now.  Pick-up your phone today and let your Congressman know that Ex-Im has got to go.

LATEST AMERICAN MAV PRESIDENTIAL POWER RANKINGS

Lots of candidates decided to jump into the race over the past week.  Several Republicans and one Democrat.  All that activity jostled the latest American Mav Presidential Power Rankings.

The American Maverick will provide periodic updates of how candidates are performing for their respective party nomination.  Candidates that have declared will have greater weighting.  Because you have to be in it, to win it.  All rankings consider how candidates jockey for attention, handle media stress and overall how they keep their message and candidacy at the forefront of American voters.

American Mav Power Rankings as of May 6, 2015:


AMERICAN MAVERICK PRESIDENTIAL POWER RANKINGS


Republicans:  Three candidates jumped into the race for the GOP.  Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina and Mike "Common Core" Huckabee.  All three are very weak with cash flow and organization in battleground states.  Carly is interesting.  She has been the best Hillary attacker of any candidate since her Iowa speech in January.  Ben Carson has a following among conservatives.  However, his meek nature and lack of comfort with hardball media questions continues to cause problems.  Huckabee honestly doesn't have a prayer.  Although Iowa likes him, his evangelic message will not fly in New Hampshire.  His Arkansas record as a big government spender and strong advocate of Common Core is catching up with him.  

Still no sign of Jeb "Amnesty" Bush.  Scott Walker moves up. And Rand Paul pulls back a little. 
(BOLD = declared candidate)

Rank     Republican Candidate
   1        Marco Rubio      +1
   2        Scott Walker     +3
   3        Rand Paul          -2
   4        Jeb Bush             --
   5        Ted Cruz            -2
   6        Carly Fiorina      --
   7        Ben Carson        New
   8        Rick Perry           --
   9        Mike Huckabee  New

The rest of the GOP hopefuls:  Bobby Jindal, Chris Christie, and Rick Santorum.

Democrats:  Self declared socialist, Bernie Sanders announced he's running.  He will be an absolute thorn in the side of Hillary.  He will call her out for her scams and political folly.  No, Bernie doesn't have a chance.  But, at this point its Hill and Bernie.  When the Dem debates start up, Bernie will not hold back on the Clinton record.  Interesting news about Elizabeth Warren.  She had a closed door meeting with the organization attempting to back her candidacy and major donors recently.  We will see what the wicked witch of Massachusetts will do. And, finally, hardly a significant word or media coverage of any of the other Dems.  (BOLD= declared candidate)

Rank     Democrat Candidate
   1        Hillary Clinton       --
   2        Elizabeth Warren    --
   3        Martin O'Malley      +1
   4        Bernie Sanders      New
   5        Jim Webb              -2
   6        Joe Biden              -1
   7        John Kerry             -1

UPDATE: AMERICAN MAVERICK PRESIDENTIAL POWER RANKING

Lots of movement this week, at least on the Republican side, of the American Maverick Power Rankings for the 2016 Presidential race.

The American Maverick will provide periodic updates of how candidates are performing for their respective party nomination.  Candidates that have declared will have greater weighting.  Because you have to be in it, to win it.  All rankings consider how candidates jockey for attention, handle media stress and overall how they keep their message and candidacy at the forefront of American voters.

Here's the April 20, 2015, update...

AMERICAN MAVERICK PRESIDENTIAL POWER RANKINGS

Republicans:  Marco officially jumped into the race following Cruz and Paul.  No sign of a declare by Jeb.  Although Jeb continued to insist on supporting policies for amnesty and common core.  Ben Carson had a rough week with miscues in the media which dropped him from the ranking.  Jindal jumped into the ranking with strong statements about lawsuits against the federal government on common core.  Carly Fiorina continues a strong media presence. (BOLD = declared candidate)

Rank     Republican Candidate
   1        Rand Paul          --
   2        Marco Rubio      +3
   3        Ted Cruz           +1
   4        Jeb Bush            -2
   5        Scott Walker      -2
   6        Carly Fiorina      +2
   7        Rick Perry          --
   8        Bobby Jindal      (New)   

The rest of the GOP hopefuls:  Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, and Rick Santorum.

Democrats:  Hillary jumped into her mystery van and trekked through select stops in Iowa.  Her launch was not strong.  And, the left media voiced their concern over Hillary's lackluster start.  Other Dems are attempting to make a run, but no serious contenders, yet.  Webb had a fair week of mainstream media interviews.  (BOLD= declared candidate)

Rank     Democrat Candidate
   1        Hillary Clinton       --
   2        Elizabeth Warren   --
   3        Jim Webb              +3
   4        Martin O'Malley      -1
   5        Joe Biden              -1

AMERICAN MAVERICK PRESIDENTIAL POWER RANKING

As the Presidential race warms up, The American Maverick will begin periodic power rankings of candidates seeking the White House.

We will take a look at how the candidates are holding up to public scrutiny, the media and how miscues may have impacted their viability as a Presidential candidate. Candidates that have declared will be given greater weight in the ranking, because you've got to be in the race to win it.  This is not a scientific ranking, just the Maverick's point of view.

Republicans and Democrats will be ranked.  Not all individuals you may regard as candidates will be highly considered.  Those with a past history of toying, but not actually running will impact their ranking.

So, here we go!  Here's the initial...

 American Maverick 2016 Presidential Power Ranking


Republicans:  Ted Cruz jumped into a hornets nest of media with his announcement in Virginia.  Rand Paul had a well executed announcement with fairly considerate media treatment and a good first campaign tour to key states.  Rubio is to announce on April 13 in Florida.   Who knows what Jeb is thinking.  The rest are stammering for when or if they should hop into the fire.  (BOLD = declared candidate)

Rank     Republican Candidate
   1        Rand Paul
   2        Jeb Bush
   3        Scott Walker
   4        Ted Cruz
   5        Marco Rubio
   6        Ben Carson
   7        Rick Perry
   8        Carly Fiorina   

The rest of the GOP hopefuls:  Bobby Jindal, Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, and Rick Santorum.

Democrats:  Hillary continues to drop the ball following her server dump and a subpoena from the Congressional Benghazi committee.  Regardless, her arrogance will push her into the race soon.  Other Dems have been jetting around the early primary/caucus states.  We'll see if they can muster enough cash to make a serious run on Hillary.

Rank     Democrat Candidate
   1        Hillary Clinton
   2        Elizabeth Warren
   3        Martin O'Malley
   4        Joe Biden
   5        John Kerry
   6        Jim Webb
