South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg said it’s “almost certain” he would not be the first gay man to serve as president of the United States if elected in 2020.Buttigieg made the comment on Sunday during an interview with Axios on HBO when asked how he would respond to someone saying he was “too young, too liberal, [or] too gay to be commander-in-chief.”“I’ll respond by explaining where I want to lead this country,” the Democrat hopeful said. “People will elect the person who will make the best president.” “We have had excellent presidents who have been young,” Buttigieg continued. “We have had excellent presidents who have been liberal.

Everything he, and many of his 'people', sees is viewed through a lens of gay. Everything else is irrelevant. He is not, and never will be, suited to be president.

Why would he be stupid enough to say this? The Only chance Buttigieg has is by being the "First Gay President." But, he says he won't be.

The answer is "yes"....James Buchanan. Not very good salesmanship on Booty-Juice's part for mentioning it, since Buchanan was incompetent and judged as one of the worst Presidents in history. This is a bit like the activists who demand that transvestites be allowed in the military when their most prominent example is Bradley Manning.

"James Buchanan Jr. was the 15th president of the United States from 1857 to 1861, serving prior to the American Civil War. He was a member of the Democratic Party and the 17th Secretary of State, and he had served in the Senate and House of Representatives before becoming president." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Buchanan He was the limp wristed swish that sashayed the nation into Civil War.

I believe we have already had a 'first husband' - Michelle, of course. We have had two 'first lesbians' as well. Eleanor Roosevelt lived the life of a lesbian after she learned about FDR's affair with her secretary. And, of course, Hillary Clinton. (Dollar Bill Clinton told Jennifer Flowers, "Hell, Hillary has eaten more p*ssy than I have!" As for Peter the Homosexual, he seems to be an advocate for that group of male homosexuals who believe that all men are homosexuals, but just don't know it yet. (That group also believes that it is OK to have sex with anyone or anything.)

He and many of those like him, of both sexes, are one-trick ponies. Everything is seen through their Gay or Lesbian lenses and everything else is subservient. He needs to explain how he will deal with the Middle Eastern Nations who would gladly dispose of him and his partner in a hearbeat.

The MSM and the GOP establishment alike excoriated Donald Trump at every turn for not having a demeanor befitting the presidency, during the campaign and continuing to this day. Meanwhile, a deviant who's pathologically obsessed with his sexual lifestyle decision, to the point where it's all he talks about, is touted as a prime candidate for leadership of the free world. And looking at our trajectory position on the way to a total cultural collapse, maybe they're right.

America has never had a gay-identifying President. However, a President with homosexual attractions is another thing altogether. I'm sure there have been but it really doesn't matter in the scheme of things. Sex lives are not for airing, especially in more bygone times.

It’s impossible to understand The New York Times’ 1619 Project as anything but sweeping historical revisionism in the service of contemporary left-wing politics.The gist of the project, named for the year the first Africans were brought to North America to be sold as slaves, is that everything about America, from our capitalist economy to our politics to the food we eat, can be explained by slavery and race. In other words, America was conceived in sin, born of evil intent, and all its lofty ideals about equality and liberty are nothing but a sham—the hypocritical stylings of slavers and white supremacists bent on the subjugation of their fellow man.

According to a video posted by the Republican National Committee “war room,” former Vice President Joseph R.

After receiving the third question, on the same subject, President Trump paused and then went deep into the heart of the issue.The question was: ” Mr. President, you keep insisting that your trade war with China — the trade war with China is not affecting the U.S. economy.

Claim: The presidential campaign of Sen.

VERDICT: The crowd size was closer to 4,000, and probably 6,000 at most.Crowd size is often seen — rightly or wrongly — as a proxy for political support. It is not always a good measure: for example, Sen.

Miley Cyrus was reportedly spotted "basically having sex" inside a California club on Friday with Kaitlynn Carter — not long after photos of the two getting cozy during an Italian getaway surfaced. Cyrus, 26, and Carter, 30, were getting hot and heavy at Soho House in West Hollywood, Page Six reported, citing a source who claimed the two "couldn't keep their hands off each other." "They were obsessed with each other," the witness said. "They were kissing and making out everywhere. In the bathroom, at the bar, in the middle of the floor. They were basically having sex.

The demise of public education 23 replies

One may believe that those in charge of public education are qualified to administer the task of educating America's youth. One may believe they have the best interests of society at heart. And one may believe they are doing the best they could do, given the conditions under which they have to work. Abundant evidence, however, points to the conclusion that none of those beliefs is valid. Public education has become an institutionalized form of child abuse. Rather than being a tool used to prepare children to become productive adults, public education is being used to indoctrinate them to believe what powerful interest groups wish them

Bernie Sanders, also a loud supporter of the GND, proposes going even farther and banning any new developments that would require fossil fuels.
