Buttigieg: If You Use Straws Or Eat Meat, You Are ‘Part Of The Problem’



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.

Judge Orders Hillary Be Deposed For Judicial Watch-Benghazi Lawsuit




* By

We are lucky to have Judicial Watch. This is the only organization that is fighting for justice. This woman shouldn’t be walking free for the crimes she’s committed. No American citizen would be able to get away with these crimes. The left truly believe they are above the law.

It would be nice to see a Clinton in Prison.

Via Breitbart:

A federal judge on Monday ordered former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to deliver a sworn deposition in response to a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch over her role in the Obama administration’s response to the 2012 terror attack on the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya.

U.S. District Court Royce Lamberth wrote in court filings that Clinton’s written answers to questions regarding the matter in a separate case were “incomplete” and “unhelpful” and demanded more information.

“As extensive as the existing record is, it does not sufficiently explain Secretary Clinton’s state of mind when she decided it would be an acceptable practice to set up and use a private server to conduct State Department business,” wrote Lamberth. “Simply put, her responses left many more questions than answers.”

The judge added: “Even years after the FBI investigation, the slow trickle of new emails has yet to be explained.”

Judicial Watch initiated the lawsuit in 2014 to uncover whether Clinton used her private email server to communicate about the Benghazi attack to skirt the Freedom of Information Act and whether the State Department reviewed records following an FOIA request from Judicial Watch. On September 11th, Ansar al-Sharia terrorists attacked the diplomatic compound, killing U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith.

FLASHBACK August 2019 Court Grants NEW Discovery on Clinton Emails!

Via Judicial Watch:

We have won a significant victory in our pursuit of the truth about Hillary Clinton’s misuse of official email and the Deep State’s efforts to cover it up.

A federal judge granted us seven additional depositions, three interrogatories and four document requests related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private, unauthorized email server.

Hillary Clinton and her former top aide and current lawyer Cheryl Mills were given 30 days to oppose being deposed by Judicial Watch (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01242)).

The court rejected Justice and State Department arguments to protect Mrs. Clinton and the agencies from additional discovery and ordered agency lawyers to respond to our questions about their knowledge of the Clinton email issue. The court granted all of our requested discovery but gave Clinton and Mills 30 days to file any opposition to the requests to question them in person under oath.

The new court-ordered discovery allows us to take testimony and gather evidence of Clinton’s handling of emails, specifically in an “after action memo” drafted by Heather Samuelson, Clinton’s senior advisor at State and White House liaison. The memo was created in December 2014 to memorialize the Clinton team’s processing of the Clinton emails. The discovery also asks when Justice and State Department attorneys learned about Clinton’s private email use; and what senior records-keeping officials at the State Department knew about Clinton’s emails and when they knew it.

VA Dems Introduce Bill To Take Pensions From Sheriffs Who Opposed Gun Control




* By

Maybe it’s time we start taking pensions from all elected officials. Officials who are supposed to serve us. Not us serving them. These elected officials become millionaires in office. These people continue to take from the American people.

Democrat leadership is useless and dangerous. None of them should ever be allowed to have power. This is what they do with that power. The Founders warned us this would happen.

Dear American people..stop voting these people into office.

Via Breitbart:

During CPAC, Culpepper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins told Breitbart News that Virginia Democrats are punishing sheriffs who continue to stand against gun control.

On December 7, 2019, Breitbart News reported Jenkins’ announcement that he was ready to “deputize thousands” to defend Second Amendment rights had the Virginia Democrats passed gun bans and other controls that were being pushed.

He made clear he equated his actions with calling forth the militia to defend freedom. He quoted Richard Henry Lee from 1788, saying, “A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves…and include all men capable of bearing arms.”

Over the past weekend of CPAC, Jenkins told Breitbart News:

In early December I came out against the newly proposed legislation to restrict everything from ‘assault weapons,’ so-called ‘assault weapons,’ to ‘high capacity magazines…and said that if we’re going to take away weapons from law-abiding citizens I intend to swear in thousands of citizens as reserve deputy sheriffs so they can keep those weapons and be able to protect themselves and use them.

Jenkins said that he and other sheriffs who took a similar stand were threatened with having insurance coverage removed “from deputies and staff.” He said that sheriffs throughout the state were offered a $10,000 raise “if we would tuck tail and follow [the Democrats’] lead and stop the push-back.”

But Jenkins refused to cower, and said they responded by saying “they would take away the raises of the deputies if we didn’t stop.”

He said State Sen. Janet Howell (D) “introduced a bill for next session where she could remove the pension of sheriffs…next year for…saying that we won’t follow unconstitutional laws or that I would use my lawful powers as sheriff to swear in thousands of people as deputies.”

Virginia Sheriff Vows to ‘Deputize Thousands’ to Defend Gun Rights

Via Breitbart:

Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins says he will “deputize thousands” to defend gun rights should incoming Democrats use their legislative positions to enact more gun control in Virginia.

On December 4, 2019, Jenkins used a Facebook post to thank the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors for standing with the dozens of other counties that have declared their intention to defend the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

But his joy was mixed with somber warnings:

Every Sheriff and Commonwealth Attorney in Virginia will see the consequences if our General Assembly passes further unnecessary gun restrictions. “Red Flag” laws without due process will create enormous conflict as well.

America has more guns than citizens and murder has long been illegal. At best, the proposed gun restrictions will disarm or handicap our law-abiding in their defense and possibly cause a criminal to choose another tool for evil.

He added:

I remain very optimistic that our General Assembly will not pass the proposed bills. Obviously, if passed, there are many of us willing to challenge these laws through the courts. In addition, if necessary, I plan to properly screen and deputize thousands of our law-abiding citizens to protect their constitutional right to own firearms.”

In January, Sheriff Richard Vaughan vowed to defend the 2nd Amendment, also.
