Pete Buttigieg isn’t going to win

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 2/9/2020 5:19:51 AM

I see that various pundits are competing to write the political epitaph for Joe ‘son-of-a-bitch‘ Biden. That’s entirely understandable. It’s been clear for some time that Biden is on the threshold of senility, and it is only my charitable disposition that prevents me from speculating about which side of the threshold he occupies. And then there was the desolation wrought by the Democrats’ impeachment entertainment. From the start, it was clear that the chief casualty of that amateur theatrics was going to be Joe Biden and his sniff, sniff, sniffing son Hunter. Everyone who is not Bill Kristol understood that the bullet of that purely partisan hit job would miss President Trump.

FTA: "Remember, Mayor Peter is the openly gay son of the editor and translator of Antonio Gramsci’s Prison Notebooks. Gramsci’s important contribution to the literature of totalitarian tyranny was his idea that Communist dictatorship could only come to free countries by means of a ‘long march through the institutions’, cultural as well as political." And the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree. Thanks, OP, for that alternate link!

The money quote from the article: “I am confident, though, that the sacrificial lamb will not be Mayor Pete Buttigieg.” Bazinga! Sacrificial lambs indeed.

Of course, Mayor Pete is a communist. And...so is Amy Klobuchar. I'm from Minnesota...take my word that she is no moderate. She presents herself as appealing as a warm casserole straight out of the oven on a cold Minnesota winter afternoon, but she has ice water in her commie veins. Communists are control freaks. They want to control every aspect of your life. By any means. The end justifies the means.

The one thing missing from this list of reasons that Buttplug will not win is that, despite what they rant on twitter, America is not ready for a homosexual and his “husband” doing deviant things in our White House.

Don't be smug about the chances of Buttigieg winning. It's possible. If Republicans don't turn out to vote in November or DO turn out and don't vote for President Trump, then it's possible we'll have President Buttigieg .

Pete B+8 represents a politician of opportunity. He brings nothing to the table for America. He is a gay, failed mayor of a small city. It is sad (for the democrats) that they have to attempt to make him a viable candidate, since the rest of the pack are even bigger losers!

Pete may be intelligent but with that intelligence comes several types of mental illness. We have had many of his type in history who rose to power because they were able to attract followers. All of the democrats are mentally flawed in one way or another, else they would not be democrats, but each is imbued with the lust for power. They will continue to split the democrats, each according to which one has the characteristics favored by that faction of democrats but we will continue to see the seesawing of winners right up until the end. Polls and votes are useless at this point in trying to pick the biggest loser.

I really don't care if Mayor Pete gets the nomination because President Trump will cut him up like a buzz saw or any of the other communist. What I really wish for, because I thoroughly dislike the man, is to see the 'No Malarkey' tour bus parked behind a nursing home and Mr. Pushup Biden a resident. That old stupid mummified fool is tiring along with his criminal billionaire son always in the news. It's time to investigate and lock both of the Biden's up.

Pete Buttigieg, Interior Decorator? 8 replies
Posted by Pluperfect 2/10/2020 4:24:45 AM Post Reply
Joe Biden’s hard-hitting new ad targeting Pete Buttigieg is drawing a lot of attention, in part because a number of commentators–Ann Althouse is one–detect a tinge of homophobia. See if you can spot it:(Snip for video)To me, the ad is an appropriate attack on Buttigieg’s obvious lack of experience. I would criticize it for grossly exaggerating Biden’s own importance; throughout his political career, he has been a mediocrity at best. The alleged homophobia consists of the ad’s repeated use of the word “decorative” (also “colorfully”) in describing Buttigieg’s achievements as Mayor of South Bend. It got by me, but maybe there are dogs out there who will hear a whistle.
Federal Witch Hunt Prosecutors Seek

There are new major developments in the case against three-star General Michael Flynn. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington has proposed delaying "a number of approaching deadlines," Fox News reports, "that would ultimately make his sentencing unlikely" on February 27, as was the original plan. The prosecutors conducting the witch hunt against one of America's most heroic and important generals of the last few decades want Gen. Flynn's former attorneys to testify against him. They argue that the general waived his attorney-client privileges in his communications with Covington & Burling by arguing that he received ineffective assistance from them.

Friday Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman was escorted from the White House where he had served on the National Security Council. His twin brother, Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman, was also dismissed from the NSC. Alexander had testified against President Trump in the House impeachment proceedings. He had listened in on the President’s telephone call with Ukrainian President Zelensky and testified that Trump had abused his office by withholding aid to the Ukraine until it announced investigations of his political opponents. Reportedly Alexander is believed to be the primary source of information for alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella. Although Yevgeny did not testify, there are unconfirmed reports

Nancy Pelosi looked like a malfunctioning Stepford wife as she sat behind President Trump during his State of the Union Address last week. Her lower face twitched, she muttered to herself, shook her head, smiled inappropriately, gazed around, chewed her lip or remained glued to her seat during standing ovations in honor of special guests. It was a bizarre enough performance before she rose to her feet and dramatically ripped up her copy of the president’s speech in what will go down in history as the most unseemly display of partisanship in this partisan era.

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and other contemporary American advocates of democratic socialism lean heavily on the democratic part, which is at least in part a matter of marketing. To take their talk of democratic principle seriously requires forgetfulness and credulousness: During the last great uprising of democratic socialism in the English-speaking world — in the United Kingdom in the 1970s, where young Iain Murray, now a fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, was doing his homework by the light of coals and candles —

The White House on Sunday unveiled a $4.8 trillion budget proposal that would slash spending dramatically on foreign aid and social safety nets, while including $2 billion for a southern border wall and substantially boosting funding to NASA, the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Homeland Security. Fox News has confirmed the details of the budget, which The Wall Street Journal first reported. The package, set to be formally announced on Monday, as-is stood little chance of passage in the House of Representatives, which the Democrats have controlled.

A gust of 209 mph was recorded atop a California peak on Sunday, a potential record that wowed forecasters monitoring a cold storm moving south through the state. The blast of wind was captured around 7:45 a.m. by an instrument at 9,186 feet on Kirkwood Mountain south of Lake Tahoe, said National Weather Service forecaster Alex Hoon. He and his colleagues at the NWS office in Reno, Nevada watched in surprise as wind speeds across the crest of the Sierra Nevada hit 150 mph and kept rising. “It went up and up,” Hoon said. It could take months for state climatologists to verify the record, he said.

The president’s fiscal 2021 budget will not include funding for the licensing of Nevada’s Yucca Mountain as a nuclear waste repository, a senior administration official confirmed to CQ Roll Call on Thursday. President Donald Trump tweeted earlier what appeared to be a rejection of the long-debated plans for the federal site about 100 miles northwest of Las Vegas, an abrupt reversal of his administration’s policy. “Nevada, I hear you on Yucca Mountain and my Administration will RESPECT you! Congress and previous Administrations have long failed to find lasting solutions — my Administration is committed to exploring innovative approaches — I’m confident we can get it done!” the president tweeted Thursday evening.

Back in 2016, former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg made elitist and demeaning comments about Midwestern rubes who are too uneducated to support transgender bathroom access. The remarks, which resurfaced on Friday, illustrate the patronizing attitude many pro-transgender activists have toward those who dare to disagree with the view that gender identity overrides biological sex. Ironically, transgender activists were triggered by how the former mayor insulted the Midwesterners who disagree with them. Speaking to an audience at Oxford University and addressing the Brexit vote, Bloomberg said, "We, the intelligentsia, the people who could make it into this room, we believe a lot of things in terms of equality

The Hollywood icons were seated at a table smack-dab down front, stage right, so it would be easy for the living legends to take the stage at the Beverly Hilton Hotel quickly when they inevitably won. But those seats would only become warmer and warmer as the night went on, because instead we heard different people called up: Sam Mendes, Brad Pitt and, most improbably, “1917.”

Impeachment has backfired far beyond the worst nightmares Democrats could have imagined. In its aftermath, President Donald Trump’s approval rating is actually now at its highest ever.

About 23.6 million people watched the 92nd installment of the show, which showered Bong Joon Ho with awards including Best Director and Best Picture for his widely acclaimed social horror film “Parasite.” And while it was the most-watched show of the awards season, even the promise of a hostless show couldn’t hoist up Hollywood’s big night amid repeat wins by actors who already took home Golden Globes, SAGs and BAFTAs.

You know what kind of gun policy is super boss? The rational kind. Thankfully, that’s exactly what Joe Biden’s serving up. The 2020 hopeful explained on Sunday that a “rational policy” means y’all can’t have “50 clips in a weapon.” Got that? You know how you’ve been stuffing 50 clips into your rifle? Well it’s rationally time you stopped. I’d like to add: Immediately cease shoving 50 guns into one holster. You look ridiculous. Yet more philosophical waxing on the campaign trail from the former VP: “An AK-47 wouldn’t protect you from a tyrannical government.” #Comforting
