Democrat Pete Buttigieg, former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, on Wednesday held President Trump responsible for the violent unrest that has beset U.S. cities controlled by Democrats. “The simple reality is that we are seeing more and more chaos and violence under the Trump presidency, and there’s no reason to expect that it would get any different or any better if he were reelected,” Mr. Buttigieg told Fox News anchor Bret Baier.(Snip) Even though Democrats have for the most part rejected the federal assistance, Mr. Buttigieg said that “the president’s strategy has obviously not helped because all of this chaos is happening on his watch.”

Comments:

Ratface Stinky Pete emerges long enough from his office inside a highway rest stop mens room stall to lob a lame volley at our president. Imagine, the Democrat Socialists considered this clown as their candidate.

A schwing and a miss. In an election season full of doubtful intelligence demonstrated by all jockeying for pot smokers to vote, Buttigeeg is a real charmer. Charmer? Well he ain't a real thinker.

Expect more of this. The presstitutes have pivoted from "mostly peaceful" to "riots" because they realize the polling is swinging toward Trump. The memo has now gone out to condemn the rioting and to try and place the blame on Trump. It's gonna be a hard sell but they will try to keep the blame away from the Dem Mayors/Governors of the rioting cities. Trump = chaos an violence will be the new narrative

I lost one of my former good friends in an argument over Buttigieg. He said that he didn't care if the man was gay. I said I don't either but gay and stupid pretty much disqualifies him for anything important. How can supposedly intelligent people ignore the fact that George Floyd killed himself by ingesting drugs and the other doofuses who were shot by the police were in the middle of various forms of dangerous criminal behavior at the time. Darwin's Law has no room for diversity or inclusion. These people live the lives that they make for themselves and if they want to die, many of us are now more than willing to accomodate them.

So it's no longer Russia collusion. Now it's Trump's Vulcan Mind Control. Apparently drives Democrats/Socialists/Communists into uncontrollable fits that drive them to riot, loot, burn things, and kill. And apparently, it also drives the Democrat mayors, cops, district attorneys, and media to just sit back and let all that rioting keep on keeping on too. Interesting excuse.

Common sense will tell you that the ignorant and anarchists, referred to by the Democrats as being “peaceful protestors” who make up the criminal and violent rioters who have perpetrated the arson, looting and destroying personal and public property in the Democrat run inner cities are not in anyway Trump Supporters. The Democrats know that of all the rioters who will actually vote, almost all are supporters of the leftist and liberal Democrats and that is why the Democrats, including Biden and Harris, have remained mute. Once the leftist and liberal Democrats figure out that a vast majority of the American people, including minority Americans, who will definitely vote, are against the rioting and the destruction of commercial business districts and private property, especially the critical drug and grocery stores that serve low income and minority communities, the Democrats are going to figure out that the polls are going to weigh in against them big time. The Democrats and the Biden-Harris ticket will then try to change their spots claiming that they could handle the civil unrest better than Trump and Pence. Obviously those very late Democrat claims are fraudulent as the Democrats, with a wink and a nod, have covertly been supporting the rioters all along by consistently referring to the rioters as being “peaceful protestors”, with Democrat Governors refusing Federal law enforcement assistance when offered by Trump. Now we have Pete Buttigieg popping up falsely claiming that the rioting is all Trump’s fault because it is happening on Trump’s watch, give us a break!

The comment 'losers criticize the winners' just isn't true. My be Buttigieg does that, but real sportsmen or politician losers do not do criticize winner. Buttigieg did not win but he does say some nasty things about President Trump. Not of President Trump's action as a president but attacks personal traits. Buttigieg claims President Trump lies but he has never stated the lie and that includes others. Liten to the Republican cheerful statements vice the downbeat drudge statements of the Democrats.

Here’s a shocking number: Democratic presidential candidates have received an average of nearly 90% of the Black vote for more than five decades. But why? Many Blacks live in big cities run by Democrats, and conditions there are pretty awful. What’s more, once Democrats get into the White House, they don’t deliver for the Black community. During the campaign, the candidates promise they’ll do a lot. Then when they win, they don’t. Every. Single. Time. And yet election after election, Blacks turn out in droves to support the Democratic candidate. It’s not like Republicans haven’t been trying to woo them.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said on Thursday that Joe Biden should not participate in debates with President Trump during the general election campaign. “Don’t tell anybody I told you this, especially don’t tell Joe Biden: I don’t think there should be any debates,” Pelosi told reporters at a press conference. “I do not think that the president of the United States has comported himself in a way that has any association with truth, evidence, data, and facts. I wouldn’t legitimize a conversation with him, nor a debate in terms of the presidency of the United States.”

KENOSHA, Wis. — Downtown buildings set ablaze by arsonists were still smoldering from the night before when Kirk Ingram started to paint an angel on his boarded-up store front. Ingram, a Democrat who runs a massage therapy business, said the war-zone images of his city on TV — armed people running through the streets, burned cars and broken windows — were bolstering President Donald Trump's get-tough message. Maybe a few uplifting murals could start to tell a different story about Kenosha, Ingram said Wednesday. Trump has attempted to frame the violent unrest in the wake of Jacob Blake’s shooting as

Kamala Harris, not basement-dwelling Joe Biden will travel to DC to deliver a counter to President Trump’s convention speech on Thursday. 77-year-old (almost 78) Joe Biden is too feeble to travel and campaign. Biden rarely leaves his Delaware basement and when he does, he stays close to home so he can shuffle back to his bunker for a nap. Now he’s deploying his running mate as the main event to counter President Trump’s convention speech.The Hill reported: Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) will deliver a speech Thursday to counter President Trump’s remarks

Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden on Thursday said President Trump is “rooting” for more violence on U.S. streets because he sees it as a political benefit. “He views this as a political benefit to him,” Mr. Biden said in a live interview on MSNBC. “He’s rooting for more violence, not less, and is clear about that.” Mr. Biden pushed back against the Trump team’s line that people wouldn’t be “safe” in his America by pointing out that the ongoing unrest and violence is in fact happening on Mr. Trump’s watch. “Joe Biden’s America—while running a video of Donald Trump’s America,” he said.

Deciding to go Colin Kaepernick one better, the NBA's Milwaukee Bucks players decided to cancel their playoff game to protest the Kenosha, Wisconsin police shooting of Jacob Blake, a career criminal with a warrant out for 3rd degree sexual assault, who was resisting arrest. That act triggered racial grievance riots, along with lootings, destruction, and a likely permanent decline for Kenosha, as usually happens in riot-torn cities. But the NBA didn't want to leave it alone and let justice take its course. Someone in the locker room of the Bucks suggested a game strike, and then the rest of them, lemmings-like, jumped onboard. The act was

Court documents list no attorney for the suspect.A police report at the time said a family member told investigators that the suspect threatened "bodily harm″ against Sarah for going on a date with a non-Muslim.

Last night provided more evidence that Tucker Carlson is the most important political commentator of the current crisis. Ankle biting critics, jealous of his status as host of the eponymous top-rated cable news show, seized upon perfectly reasonable comments he made on Wednesday’s edition of his show and launched a campaign to boycott his advertisers (they are close forcing me to buy one of Mike Lindell’s pillows) and thereby pressure Fox News into cancelling him. Tucker proudly tweeted out the segment in question, with Twitter cautioning viewers that it may be sensitive
