Trump, Invictus fan Max Dickstein declares candidacy for LNC Chair

Max Dickstein writes (excerpted):

Trump completely EXPOSED and DECIMATED Clinton as the corrupt, lying, criminal, corporatist that she is. His decline despite also exposes the system BEHIND Hilary Clinton–her support structure in the form of the mlitary-industrial complex, the media, the banking system, and the globalist propaganda machine as a whole.

While Clinton may win office, this debate will force the public to keep a watchful eye on her and her affiliates. And while Trump may have lost, this is will be the moment where the counterrevolution against the US political and financial elite (aka the bastards) begins. By exposing the system, Trump has created a window for us to kick out the established political elite and replace them with true American Patriots—party be damned.

In fact, Trump has inspired me to engage and put my money where my mouth is : I hereby declare that I will be running for chair of the National Libertarian Party in the next election. The LP is a part of the establishment, and I intend to infiltrate it, reform it, and break it if it must be done.

Darth Trump….I Will Finish….What You Started.


In addition to his fondness for Trump, Dickstein is also a fan of Augustus Invictus, Augusto Pinochet, Hans-Hermann Hoppe and Darrell Castle. He is an avid 9/11 truther and cryptocurrency/Silk Road fan. “His father is a currency trader, and Dickstein, who describes himself as an “unrepentant one-percenter,” dropped out of college to trade currency as well. He got his father interested in Bitcoin, which he saw “as an alternative to gold,” “ according to an article republished on his website.

Dickstein has posted that he has a positive view of Jill Stein, and negative views of Gary Johnson, Bill Weld, John McAfee and Austin Petersen. He also published an anti-Darryl Perry hit piece by Nathan Norman.

The LNC is due to elect its next chair at the next national convention in New Orleans in 2018.

    The alt-right/paleos throw around accusations of “purity” when challenged, too. They are quite adept at playing the victim.

    “Oh, we are not pure enough!!! Oh, the purists have decreed who and who isn’t a libertarian. Oh, our candidates get votes, our authors are best sellers and purists never get beyond 2%. Without Hans Hoope and Ron Paul, libertarianism is nothing but an insignificant debating society between cultural leftists a few libertine jagoffs. It’s time to bring libertarianism to the real middle America! Make America Free Again!!!!!”

    As I’ve mentioned previously, w/o the radicals, the pragmaticrats would get a big helping spoonful of their own medicine thrown right back at them…but now they would be the purists. And it would be a rout.

    1) Does “Max Dickstein” actually exist?

    2) If not, is “Max Dickstein” also “Nathan Norman” or another of his aliases?

    3) Who is “Mr. Brown?” Is he in fact “Nathan Norman” and/or “Max Dickstein?”

    This made me laugh out loud!

    Shall we count the lies? Tally up the results? Who came out in front? Well, I know it wasn’t Hillary Clinton…

    On another note… “The LP is part of the establishment!” HHHHHHHHAAAAAA

    And you wonder if this guy is real? His “name” is DICK stein.

  4. Tony From Long Island

    oh yeah, why is this even posted on here? Is this a verified actual person?

  5. Mr. Brown

    “1) Does “Max Dickstein” actually exist?”

    Surprisingly, yes. See

    “2) If not, is “Max Dickstein” also “Nathan Norman” or another of his aliases?”

    I don’t know if Nathan Norman is a Max Dickstein alias. It’s possible.

    “3) Who is “Mr. Brown?” Is he in fact “Nathan Norman” and/or “Max Dickstein?” ”

    Absolutely not. I am in no way or shape or form a fan or supporter of Dickstein/Norman. I did think that the LNC Chair announcement was somewhat newsworthy. Is anyone else declared yet for LNC Chair? Anecdotally, second or third hand, I have been told that Valerie Sarwark has cast the deciding vote against Nick Sarwark running again. My sources on that are not necessarily reliable.

    wasn’t this one of those Grand Inquirer guys who hijacked the American Third Party Report website for some time?

  7. Mr. Brown

    Also, does anyone know how to do internet searches? As in..

    Or try searching for Dickstein by itself, and you’ll see he isn’t the only Dickstein (the law firm of Dickstein Shapiro is the top result). For example, there was a congressman Samuel Dickstein from NY some decades back.

    “oh yeah, why is this even posted on here?”

    Because he has announced he is running for LNC Chair, becoming to my knowledge the first announced candidate.

    “Is this a verified actual person?”

    Google, bing, any number of other search engines, or following the link back to his blog and reading the tab at the top that says “about the owner” could have been your friend here.

  8. Mr. Brown

    “wasn’t this one of those Grand Inquirer guys who hijacked the American Third Party Report website for some time?”

    Yes, he is the Grand Inquirer. They have acquired the database of past ATPR articles, and for a short time the ATPR URL redirected there thanks to ATPR co-founder/co-admin Lesiak who took unilateral action behind the other admins’ back there. However, one of the other co-founders of ATPR who actually owned that domain recovered control of it and redirected it away from Dickstein’s site, re-establishing ATPR without Lesiak and separate from Dickstein’s site. They have also been able to recover all or most of the older ATPR article archives, so those are now posted on both sites, with new articles now being different on the two sites.

    Mr. Brown,
    Thanks for summing up the recent “ATPR War”. It was really hard to keep track of what exactly was happening for a little while.

    George Phillies: “The Vox Poll definition of authoritarianism is extremely strange.”

    Maine Gov. LePage declared, on radio station WVOM, “I wonder that our Constitution is not only broken, but we need a Donald Trump to show some authoritarian power in our country and bring back the rule of law.”

  11. George Phillies

    Here are the actual “authoritarian” questions, as reported by

    my poll asked a set of four simple survey questions that political scientists have employed since 1992 to measure inclination toward authoritarianism. These questions pertain to child-rearing: whether it is more important for the voter to have a child who is respectful or independent; obedient or self-reliant; well-behaved or considerate; and well-mannered or curious. Respondents who pick the first option in each of these questions are strongly authoritarian.

    Calling these opinions “authoritarian” is in my opinion stark raving bonkers.

    “Calling these opinions “authoritarian” is in my opinion stark raving bonkers.”

    How so? If anything, it seems self-evident.

  13. Jill Pyeatt

    Calling these opinions “authoritarian” is in my opinion stark raving bonkers.

    George, in what way do you think these questions don’t work to indicate someone’s tendency toward authoritarianism?
