This takes hypocrisy to new heights even for the left. Democratic presidential candidate South Bend, IN, Mayor Pete Buttigieg said Thursday morning on CNN that if you use straws or eat hamburgers, you are “part of the problem.” Except he seems to do both of those… a lot. There is ample video and pictorial evidence to prove it as well. It would be funny except he’s trying to get the Democratic nomination for the 2020 presidential contest and he’s dead serious. Straws and burgers for me, but not for thee.
Appearing on CNN’s “New Day” with Alisyn Camerota, Buttigieg continued to push the notion, increasingly popular on the far-left, that fighting climate change is somehow equivalent to the United States’ fight against the Nazis in World War II. Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was the first to make this outrageous claim and others on the left have picked up on it. It’s absurd and a flat-out lie. Does he know that an estimated 85 million people died during the Second World War? Does he even care?
“I think that it makes a lot of people feel very helpless … people feel helpless when it’s something that existential,” Camerota said. “So what do you do about that?”
Camerota says she personally cannot sleep at night because she is worried about our oceans. Oh brother.
“Right, and that’s one of the things: I think the downside to us facing just how colossal of a challenge this is, is it can feel paralyzing,” Buttigieg answered. “But we can rise to meet this and be proud of it. That’s part of what my climate plan is about. It’s not only about all of the things we’ve got to do technologically and with regulation and so on. It’s about summoning the energies of this country to do something unbelievably hard.”
Not to mention unworkable, destructive and monstrously expensive.

“If you look at the moments when this country rose to a major challenge, overcoming the Great Depression, winning World War II, going to the moon, it required something out of all of us. And I think we could be standing taller,” Buttigieg continued.
“From using a straw to eating a burger, am I part of the problem? In a certain way, yes,” Buttigieg concluded. “But the most exciting thing is that we can all be part of the solution.”
Using that logic, or lack thereof, Buttigieg certainly is part of the problem. My solution is to never elect someone this out of touch with reality.

From The Daily Wire:
“Buttigieg’s wild claim resulted in widespread mockery online with some noting his hypocrisy on the issue:

“Buttigieg is not alone in his extremist climate-related views, as Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), entrepreneur Andrew Yang, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) made similar remarks during CNN’s climate change-specific town hall last night.
“Buttigieg has numerous other far-left views, including support for socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) $93 trillion Green New Deal, eliminating the Electoral College, ending all college tuition, eradicating the death penalty, abolishing private prisons, and banning large swaths of semiautomatic firearms.”

And it gets even better… from Fox News who points out that Buttigieg is claiming that it’s ‘kind of a sin’ for Republicans to not do something about climate change:
“During the town hall, the 2020 hopeful claimed climate change was a national security issue and that the Syrian war was the first war “partly caused” by climate change. He also invoked God and religion in the climate change debate, saying environmentally irresponsible behavior was “kind of a sin.”
“Let’s talk in language that is understood across the heartland about faith,” Buttigieg said. “If you believe that God is watching as poison is being belched into the air of creation, and people are being harmed by it — countries are at risk of vanishing in low-lying areas — what do you suppose God thinks of that? I bet He thinks it’s messed up.”
“He added, “You don’t have to be religious to see the moral dimensions of this because frankly, every religious and non-religious tradition tell us that we have some responsibility of stewardship, some responsibility of taking care of what’s around us – not to mention taking care of our neighbor… At least one way of talking about this is that it’s a kind of sin.”‘

Then he went on MSNBC with this claptrap – from Breitbart:
“Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” 2020 presidential hopeful and South Bend, IN, Mayor Pete Buttigieg predictedRepublicans would face a “reckoning” for “beating other people on the head” with “their interpretation of their faith.”
“Host Joe Scarborough said, “I always tell people, just look at the red letters in the New Testament. What does Jesus talk about? Right? He talks about Matthew 25. He talks about feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, bringing hope to the hopeless, visiting those in jails, and says when you do that to the least among these, you do this to me. And by the way, that’s what Jesus says to his disciples. You want to know how to get to heaven? Let me tell you, and he tells the parable about the sheep and the goats. You see that, and then the story of the Good Samaritan — Jesus saying yes, you have to love your neighbor. And let me tell you who the neighbor was, he was a foreigner, detested by the Jews, and Jesus challenged them. Combine those two things, and I just must ask, how do we have the policies that we have, not only at the border but across this country and across this world by people who claim to believe the red letters in the New Testament?”
“Buttigieg said, “That is one of the mysteries that is truly beyond my power to understand. I really think that there has to be a reckoning about this. Look, we all have very different, obviously, for as long as there has been faith and politics, there have been different understandings on the right thing to do and how these things fit together, but for the party and the movement known for beating other people on the head with their faith, or their interpretation of their faith, it makes no sense to literally vote to take food away from the hungry, to essentially be practicing the very thing that not just the Christian scriptural tradition, but so many others tell us we’re not supposed to do, in terms of harming other people. I do think there’s going to be a reckoning over that. Because there are a lot of people sitting in the pews hearing political conservatism all around them, wondering whether that really matches what we’re being told to do.”’
I wonder if he ever considers he might get struck by lightning with that kind of blasphemous politicking? He’s talking down to Christians in flyover country here and it’s insulting. What a shameless hussy. Not only that, it shows even though he claims to be a Christian, he’s no such thing. Neither is Joe Scarborough.
This just goes to show that there is no ‘low’ too low for Buttigieg to stoop to when it comes to climate change. However, he has misjudged Christians and patriotic Americans who, contrary to what he thinks, are not stupid and actually know what the Bible says as well as what history tells us. Our problem has to do with Marxists and that includes Buttigieg.

VIDEO: Rashida Tlaib: Dems Discussing Arresting Trump Officials
It’s crystal clear..that the left should never ever be allowed into our government. These are dangerous folks.
Maybe Rashida should be arrested for her connections to Islamic terrorists. The fact that this woman is in our government…is despicable!
Via The Daily Wire:
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) stated on Tuesday that House Democrats were discussing behind closed doors how to arrest the members of President Donald Trump’s administration who did not comply with congressional subpoenas.
“Let me tell you, this is pretty — and this is the last caucus conversation we had. Do you know this is really unprecedented? This is the worst time we’ve ever had a situation like this,” Tlaib said during a town hall meeting. “So they’re trying to figure out — no joke — they’re trying to figure out, ‘Well, is it the D.C. police that goes and gets them?’ No, no.”
“What are we hoping? I mean, I’m not in those kinds of conversations, but I’m asking, like, you know, what happens? And they’re like, ‘Well, Rashida, we’re trying to figure it out ourselves because this is uncharted territory,’” she continued. “No, I’m telling you that they’re trying to be like, ‘Well, where are we going to put them? Where are we going to hold them?’ No, I mean those are the kinds of things they’re trying to tread carefully.”

Accordingly, in an escalating effort to force White House officials comply with congressional subpoenas, House Democrats have reportedly been reexamining holding those members of the administration in inherent contempt — a power that the legislature has not used since 1935.
The Conservative Partnership Institute (CPI) explains that inherent contempt is the oldest of three strategies that Congress can use to enforce subpoenas. According to the Washington, D.C.-based think tank:
“Since 1935, Congress has relied on the executive and judicial branches when people refuse to comply with congressional subpoenas. This practice makes sense: if Congress cannot get the information it needs on its own authority, then it can rely on the authority of the other branches of government. However, there is another option. Instead of turning to another branch, Congress can legally imprison or fine individuals who refuse to comply.”
Tlaib incorrectly suggested that the process could be enforced by the Washington, D.C. Police Department — the procedure actually only involves the chamber that is concerned. Following a contempt citation, the individual is arrested by the chamber’s sergeant-at-arms, and subsequently brought to the floor for punishment, which may include imprisonment.
