Markham Robinson Dies at 77

According to Ballot Access News, former chairman of the American Independent Party (AIP) Markham Robinson has died of an unspecified illness. Robinson had been part of the leadership of the AIP since 2008 and is currently listed on the party website as Executive Committee chair. He was 77.

Robinson was active on Twitter under the name @BraveLad. His account currently has approximately 484,000 followers. In his final pinned Tweet, dated July 25, he wrote:

Robinson was involved in the birther movement questioning the validity of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate. Recently, he questioned the citizenship of Vice President Kamala Harris. His participation in the leadership of the AIP, the third largest ballot-qualified political party in California, coincided with the party’s backing of Ambassador Alan Keyes in the 2008 presidential election and the AIP’s disaffiliation from the Constitution Party. In recent years, Robinson and the AIP have supported President Donald Trump, placing him on the ballot as their presidential nominee in 2016. In 2020, the party nominated a ticket of businessman Rocky De La Fuente and entertainer Kanye West, whom the party felt would help Trump. Robinson questioned the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election.

Robinson is survived by his wife of over 50 years, Mary Westmoreland.

    I have documented the corruption of Robinson at but such commentary barely scratches the surface of the utterly demonic monster that he was. He was a horrific liar and traitor whose full intention from his 1st second in the AIP was to destroy the Constitution Party in service to his Deep State controllers/handlers; i.e.; he was a mole from the start.
    He was an utterly pompous egomaniac who was more than willing to completely destroy the work of Bill Shearer in exchange for his own glorification. His handlers/controllers knew him well that he would betray everything – Bill Shearer, the Republic, the 3rd party conservative movement – in exchange for his own ultra petty feather preening glorification. He was pure evil, a true demon, in human form. The sun shines brighter, the birds sing in happiness, and the world is a better place with the passing of his evil shadow. Burning in hell for eternity is too good for him as he will have his companion demons to comfort him.
