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.

Blasey Ford’s Friend: I Was Threatened With ‘Smear Campaign’ If I Didn’t Back Kavanaugh Story



Color me shocked. Actual journalism and the uncovering of facts are coming out over the book written by two New York Times journalists as a hit job against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and you will never believe where it is coming from… CBS. They claim to have the “real bombshell” the Times’ initial report missed. And they are right.

The long-time “close friend” of Christine Blasey Ford, who Ford named as a potential witness to the alleged sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh back in high school, not only says she does not believe Ford’s accusation, but told the FBI that allies of Ford threatened her with a smear campaign to change her story. How vile is that? No wonder they are no longer friends. Because she would not lie for Blasey Ford and the left they threatened to take her out. So typical.

From The Daily Wire:

“Leland Keyser, a long-time “close friend” of Ford, is one of four people Ford named as supposedly being at the alleged party where she said Kavanaugh tried to force himself on her. In its report Monday, CBS Evening News notes that with Keyser’s first public statements on her friend’s allegations, which she gave in an interview with Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, all four of the people Ford claims were at the party now flatly deny that it ever happened.

“As The Daily Wire reported Monday, Keyser also says that Ford’s allies attempted to pressure her to change the story, telling the FBI that those allies even threatened to mount a smear campaign against her if she didn’t — a claim previously revealed by Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino in their book, “Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court.”

“In a tweet Monday promoting the CBS report, CBS’s Jan Crawford underscored the “real bombshell” highlighted by the network (h/t Ed Morrissey): “We report tonight the real bombshell: Christine Ford’s close HS friend (who Ford says was at the party when Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted her) said Ford’s story is not believable and told the FBI Ford’s allies pressured her, threatened her with a smear campaign to say otherwise.”

“As The Daily Wire reported Monday, Hemingway and Severino’s book, which was published in July but largely ignored by the media, unlike the new Times reporters’ book, referenced the alleged attempt to pressure Keyser. In a report for The Federalist Monday, Hemingway summarized the revelations in their book that the Times reporters confirmed and elaborated upon:

The authors also acknowledge what had previously been reported in “Justice on Trial,” about the efforts of mutual friends to get her to change her testimony to be more supportive of Blasey Ford. The reporters say that some of Blasey Ford’s friends “had grown frustrated with Keyser. Her comments about the alleged Kavanaugh incident had been too limited, some of them felt and did not help their friend’s case. Surely, given what a close friend Keyser had been, she could say more to substantiate Ford’s testimony and general veracity, even if she could not corroborate Ford’s more specific memories.”

A group text was formed in which friends such as Cheryl Amitay and Lulu Gonella discussed how to get her to say something more helpful to the cause. An unnamed man on the text suggested that they defame her as an addict. Keyser has been in recovery for some time, as her friends know and as has previously been reported.

Amitay answered, “Leland is a major stumbling block.” While asserting she didn’t want her to make anything up out of whole cloth, she offered ideas for things that could sound supportive of Ford’s story, such as that she’d been in similar situations with Blasey Ford that summer.

“I was told behind the scenes that certain things could be spread about me if I didn’t comply,” Keyser told the reporters, a stunning admission of the pressure to which she was subjected to by Blasey Ford’s allies.

Keyser said that Blasey Ford’s story of the alleged assault “didn’t make any sense.” “It would be impossible for me to be the only girl at a get-together with three guys, have her leave, and then not figure out how she’s getting home,” Keyser recalled. “I just really didn’t have confidence in the story.”

On Monday evening, President Trump said during a rally in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, that The New York Times will “never recover” from its mistake regarding the allegations against Kavanaugh. “They’ve taken the old grey lady and broken her down, destroyed her virtue, and ruined her reputation. She can never recover and will never return to greatness under current management,” the president commented. He’s certainly right about that.

This was simply a vicious political hit job to keep Brett Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court because of his views on abortion and other matters. But it has backfired big-time as lie after lie has been exposed. The left won’t let it go though and dementedly go on about impeachment over these lies. It didn’t work and it further discredited the media and the left.

No wonder Americans no longer trust the media. CBS should be commended for their actual journalism here.

Kamala Harris Wants Mandatory Buyback Of ‘Assault Weapons’ – Have ‘No Place’ In Society




* By

Democrats just can’t help their tyrant selves. The gun battle is a battle the left will never ever win. No matter how hard they try. The majority of this country is armed.

Good luck trying to pry guns from American hands… It’s not going to happen, Kamala.

Via Daily Caller:

Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris has become the latest presidential candidate to say that she will force Americans to relinquish their assault weapons.

However, she’s prepared to “buy back” the rifles and “give people their value” for the confiscated firearm, Harris told an audience member Monday at “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Harris also said that “we need to do buy backs” when asked what her policy on assault weapons would be.

“Great question I do believe that we need to do buy backs, and I’ll tell you why. First of all, let’s be clear about what assault weapons are they have been designed to kill a lot of human beings quickly. They are weapons of war with no place on the streets of a civil society,” Harris said.

Harris went further, saying that if she could not get the legislation through Congress to ban the further sale of assault weapons, she is “prepared to take executive action” to do so.

“I’ve seen assault weapons kill babies and police officers so, one, I’ll tell you when elected president, if the United States Congress continues to fail to have the courage to do something about this, I’m prepared to take executive action and put in place a ban on the importation of assault weapons into our country.”

Former Texas Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke has also supported mandatory assault weapon buybacks, saying “Hell, yes” he is prepared to take away guns. O’Rourke insisted it wouldn’t be necessary for federal government agents to go door to door to seize guns because he believes Americans will comply with the proposed law.

But that wouldn’t address those weapons that are currently owned by Americans, so Harris thinks “a buyback program is a good idea.” She promised to move quickly on the issue if she becomes the next president.

“And so, I’m telling you, when elected, if Congress fails to act, I’ll give them 100 days to put a bill on my desk for signature. And if they do not it, I will put it in place by executive action a comprehensive background check requirement and a ban on the assault weapons and importation of assault weapons into our country. I’m done.”
