Buttigieg Touts Less Government, but only when it’s about Abortion and Infanticide

Guest Piece by Karen Kataline

The View‘s Meghan McCain recently sought a clearer answer from Mayor Pete Buttigieg about his position on late-term abortion. She asked him where he drew the line and whether his position included a baby actually being born:

Buttigieg:  We live in a country where it is extremely important that no one person should have to be subject to some other person’s interpretation of their own religion.”

I wondered whether Mayor Pete thought religious freedom equally applied to say, Jack Phillips’ right not to be forced to create a custom cake for a gay wedding.  Sure enough I found a piece in the Washington Free Beacon, entitled, “Mayor Pete Will Make you Bake the Cake.”

McCain pressed again, and the Mayor of South Bend answered with rhetoric that sounded like a limited government conservative:Buttigieg: My point is that it shouldn’t be up to the government official to draw the line. It should be up the woman who is confronted with that choice.

McCain: So if a woman wanted to invoke infanticide after a baby is born, you’d be comfortable with that?

Buttigieg: … I don’t know what to tell them morally about what they should do. I just know that I trust that her decision isn’t going to be any better, medically or morally . . . because the government is telling her to do it a certain way.

He gave an almost identical answer in a televised Town Hall with Chris Wallace.

Candidate Buttigieg who is ordinarily so comfortable sermonizing to his Leftist flock couldn’t bring himself to say that it is immoral to kill a baby after it’s born.

I’ve always found it perplexing that the Left’s strong support for Obamacare never included any of this faux passion for freedom and restraint of government when it comes to actual health care.  They were more than happy to cheer for government dictates, bans and demands when it was about your heart, lungs, spleen and appendix because, “healthcare freedom” to them, begins and ends with abortion. Note to Leftists: Abortion is not “healthcare.” Neither is infanticide.

As all Democrats and Leftists should, Pete Buttigieg should be held accountable for his twisting of basic principles and of the language itself. He should also be confronted on his minuscule appreciation and understanding of one of our most fundamental constitutional principles of limited government.

A national discussion about Socialism vs. Capitalism is long overdue in these United States. It will be essential as a centerpiece of this year’s Presidential campaign. We have a vital role to play by applying the Left’s language to their own hypocrisy and to illustrate that freedom has much more to do with life than with death.

8 Bits of Intrigue to Look for in Tonight’s State of the Union Event

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, that whole “climate change” scam isn’t working for us, so here’s an idea – let’s use new talking points! –  The grand global climate scam has been running out of steam over the last two years since Donald Trump assumed the presidency and more and more Americans wake up to the reality that they have been heinously deceived by the Al Gores and Leonardo DiCaprios of the world.

So what are the scammers to do? After three solid decades of seeing them simply ramp up the shrillness of their alarmist rhetoric every time their movement began to lose momentum, the alarmists who now run the American Meteorological Society have decided to take a new tack: Tone things down and and become less shrill and more subtle with their brainwashing instead.

Don’t misunderstand – it will be the same old stuff, with every tropical storm described as being completely unprecedented, with every wildfire declared to be a sign of “permanent drought”, giving scary names to every significant cold front and with every thunderstorm pronounced to be the “strongest on record.” But they’ll be calmer about it all, and the plan is to stop blaming your SUV for everything – because pretty much nobody is buying that anyway – and begin instead to connect it all directly to advocacy for … wait for it… leftist government policies!

I swear I don’t make this stuff up:  

“Is it humans or is it not? We really need to get beyond that,” Bernadette Woods Placky, an Emmy award-winning meteorologist who directs the Climate Matters program at Climate Central, told me. Climate Matters is tracking climate trends in 244 cities—including a steadily warming Phoenix. “We are still not getting enough people to talk about it in the ways that matter to human beings in their homes, in their communities, for their family,” she added. “So it is making those connections in ways that really matter to people. It’s a jobs story. It’s an agriculture story. Connect it to the farm bill; boom!”

Boom, indeed. This new scam plan will last about 3 months or until Al Gore puts together another slide show, whichever comes first. Then it will all go back to the traditional alarmist hype, because that is the literal dogma of the Global Church of Climate Change, of which Mr. Gore is the reigning Pope.

The State of the Union address is tonight – here are eight key things to look for that the media isn’t talking about this morning:

  • Will Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee have her customary seat on the aisle so she can get her face on television? – Is the Pope Catholic (ok, that’s an open question)? Does a wild bear poop in the woods? It is a very safe bet that she is already ensconced in her favorite seat as I post this piece up around 7:00 Central Time this morning. There she will sit all day long, forcing staffers to bring her food and sit in for her when she takes bathroom breaks, in her annual effort to show her constituents how important she is. It is possibly the most pathetic tradition in the DC Swamp.
  • Will Ruth Bader Ginsburg give the nation proof of life? – Don’t count on it. And don’t count on any of the news fakers at CNN, MSNBC or the three “major” broadcast networks to make any mention of her absence.
  • Will San Fran Nan have that gerbil running around in her mouth again this year? – Ok, it was probably just a poorly-fitting bridge, but Nancy Pelosi spent the entirety of Trump’s speech last year looking for all the world like she was chasing some sort of living being around in her mouth with her tongue. She’ll be seated behind the President at the podium this time, so the camera will be on her all night long. Hopefully she’s had a trip to the orthodontist since then, because it was not a pretty spectacle.

  • Will West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin have to get Chuck Schumer’s permission on when to stand and applaud this year? – He did last year, and was famously caught on camera quickly sitting down after Schumer gave him a dirty look.  Pathetic.
  • Will Democrat freshmen stage some sort of a disruption? – Don’t be surprised if freshmen Democrats, led by communist Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Muslim extremists Ilhan Omar and Rhashida Tlaib, stage some sort of disruption during the speech. It would be in keeping with their distinct lack of character.
  • Will any white man from the Virginia Democrat delegation show up in blackface or KKK robes? – After this last week, it’s a perfectly valid question.
  • Will the President call Democrats out for their ongoing advocacy of killing live-born babies? – He certainly should, and he should do it in the most unambiguous language possible.
  • Will the President call the fake news media out for its ongoing protection of the blatant racist, infanticide-supporting Governor of Virginia? – Assuming Ralph Northam has still not resigned by the time President Trump takes the podium tonight, how could he not?

There you have them – eight points of intrigue to keep your sharp eyes out for during this year’s rendition of the most tedious and tiresome bit of Kabuki Theater the DC Swamp rolls out to entertain the masses each year. I still wish the President had decided to go deliver this thing out in Pittsburgh, St. Louis or the Rio Grande Valley last week, but hey, it is what it is, so let’s all make the best of it.

That is all.

Ralph Northam Says “Hold My Beer!” One More Time

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

What would you do if you’re at a press conference, fighting for your political life after a week during which you endorsed outright infanticide and got caught wearing black face, and a reporter asks if you can still do the Michael Jackson Moonwalk? –  Well, if you’re Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, you look around to see if there’s room to do the Moonwalk and are just about to say “Hold my beer!” until your wife – who thankfully was there to stand by her racist, baby-killing man – tells you that these are “inappropriate circumstances” in which to show off your dancing skills.

That is how clueless an individual the Governor of Virginia truly is. Which yet again raises the question, how did Ed Gillespie and the Virginia GOP lose to this walking, talking circus clown? What are they putting in the water in Virginia that leads voters to go to the polls and actively support such a horrible wretch of a human being?

Yes, yes, I know: Texans re-elect Sheila Jackson Lee to the congress every two years like clockwork, but that’s from a tiny district carved out of specific parts of Houston that is filled with people who would vote for Spongebob Squarepants or Grumpy Cat if they happened to be the Democrat nominee. Virginia is a whole state – like in Arizona, whose elected senators become increasingly repugnant in each iteration (think McCain to Flake to Sinema), the voters there do not have the gerrymandering excuse.

Here’s how stupid Virginia’s Governor believes Virginia’s voters are as a class: After admitting several times on Friday evening that he is indeed the guy in black face in the infamous photo that everyone on earth has seen a dozen times now, he spent all day Saturday crawfishing that back. His new story is that, yes, he did dress up in black face in an effort to imitate Michael Jackson the same year that photo was taken, but the guy in black face in that specific photo is not him. (For all you Millennials out there who are confused because you only remember Michael Jackson as one of the whitest men you’ve ever seen in your life, in 1984 he did indeed have dark skin.)

Even better, Northam now claims that Friday was the first time he had ever seen that photo in his entire life, because he did not purchase his college annual. So he was confused on Friday, but after getting a good night’s sleep beside his stand-by-your-racist-baby-killing-man wife, he wants you to believe that he awoke on Saturday to the realization that, “Hey, I did do all that horribly racist stuff in college, but nobody took a picture of me doing it!” and he is claiming he wants to get an “expert” to use “facial recognition software” on that grainy black-and-white photo from 35 years ago to prove it!

Presumably, Gov. Racist Baby Killer also thinks CSI was a documentary.

One thing we know for certain sure is that he thinks voters in Virginia – and Democrats everywhere – are hopelessly stupid individuals and easily misled, just like Hillary Clinton famously said.

And hey, the fact that he got elected to serve as Governor of Virginia pretty much proves he’s 100% correct.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.  Maybe they can all go “learn to code” as Barack Obama advised all of those workers who lost manufacturing jobs he said would never come back. (They’ve all come back and more in the last two years.)

Ralph Northam is What Happens When Our Fake News Media Fails to do Its Job

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

At last!  A failed mayor of a corrupt New Jersey city is running for president!  Thanks, Democrats! –  Yes, friends, Senator Spartacus Jazz Hands, aka Cory Booker, has joined the fray in the ballooning competition to see which Democrat gets to lose to Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.  Aren’t you all thrilled?  I know I am.

We had to have Sen. Jazz Hands in the race for the entertainment value alone. Think of him as the 2020 version of John Kasich, only without all the “my father was a mailman” references. Spartacus will be the guy who just keeps hanging around saying all sorts of boring and stupid stuff while not winning anything, but he’ll have the added value of throwing the frequent childish fit when he doesn’t get his way about something. That’s when the Jazz Hands come out.

Yes, truly, Sen. Jazz Hands was an essential element for this cycle’s field of Democrat candidates. His entry into the race leaves us with just one more potential candidate announcement remaining who simply must get in in order to complete the perfect Democrat line up of freaks, misanthropes, communists, losers and frauds: Irish Bob O’Rourke.

Irish Bob simply must get in for the simple reason of all the fantastic social media memes his fake nickname will spawn. Plus, the potential for him live-streaming his next colonoscopy for political reasons is just something the nation cannot live without.

Jump in, Irish Bob, the water’s just fine, and the doctor is ready.

How does this even happen? – When you look back on the reality of it, it’s hard to imagine anyone with a mind creative and evil enough to make up the week the Democrat Party just had. Think about it: This week alone, here is what they have done:

  • Had two sitting governors, the mayor of a major city, and members of 8 different state legislatures sign, propose, endorse or pass bills that legalize infanticide;
  • Had the narrative about the infamous “Trump Tower Meeting” conducted by Donald Trump, Jr. in October 2016 be revealed as utterly fake news;
  • Had one of the party’s major presidential candidates endorse elimination of all private health insurance, a key piece of the communist agenda;
  • Saw the head of the American Gestapo, er, “Special Counsel” issue an indictment against Roger Stone that conclusively proves there was no “Russia Collusion” by the Trump Campaign;
  • Had the State of the Union Address scheduled for Feb. 5, giving President Trump a golden opportunity to spend 90 minutes educating the nation about what a freak and horror show their political party really is;
  • Had their favorite Supreme Court Justice fail to show up for work for the fourth consecutive week;
  • Saw President Trump take the right side – the side of freedom – in Venezuela while many of their own members and media toadies showed their true colors by supporting that country’s current thug socialist dictator;
  • Had the January jobs report come in at almost double the number predicted by all the idiot “experts”;
  • Saw the Dow Jones Industrial Average jump right back up over 25,000;
  • Saw President Trump make huge progress in getting his trade deal with China;
  • And finally, the coup de gras, saw the release of a yearbook photo showing the Democrat Governor of Virginia made up in black face, standing next to a guy in full KKK regalia!

Now, that, folks, is a No Good, Terrible, Horrible, God-awful, Very Bad Week.

And it’s only Saturday.

Seriously, how do you miss this? – If I’m Ed Gillespie, the GOP candidate who lost the Virginia Governor’s race to Ralph Black Face Infanticide Northam, I’m on the phone this morning with the high-dollar firm that was in charge of my campaign’s opposition research effort demanding a refund.

Seriously, how does someone miss something so rudimentary and still hold themselves out to be political professionals? And it isn’t just Gillespie – Northam had three opponents in the Democrat primary, and none of their oppo people caught it, either. It took a conservative blogsite – Bigleaguepolitics.com – with a no doubt bare bones staff to finally take a look at Northam’s college annuals and find the photo that everyone else had missed.  Amazing.

Then there’s the fake news media, most especially the news fakers at the Washington Post. The Post had plenty of fake reporters on staff to dedicate to finding women from 40 years ago who would slander Alabama Republican senate candidate Roy Moore, had dozens of fake journalists scouring every facet of Brett Kavanaugh’s background, but had zero interest at all in assigning some intern to review the high school and college annuals of a Democrat gubernatorial candidate.  Funny how that works, huh?

Here we have an overt racist (Northam’s college nickname was – I kid you not – “Coon Man”) and endorser of outright infanticide sitting in the Governor’s mansion of Virginia in the year 2019, and no one in our fake news media had the slightest whiff of that prior to election day?  Please.

Note to all you demented Democrats: This is what happens when our nation’s entire Fourth Estate has consciously and intentionally abrogated its duty to perform as the people’s advocate in our society. Ralph Northam and the shame he has brought upon you this week is simply reaping what your party has sown.

I’m cool with that.

That is all.

Robert Mueller’s Big Bag of Nothing Springs Another Leak

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Oh, that report was fake news? You don’t say. –  After having spent the last year and a half slandering Donald Trump, Jr. and his father, President Donald Trump, alleging that telephone records somehow showed that Trump, Jr. had called his father just prior to his famous meeting with several Russian nationals at Trump Tower in October of 2016, the news fakers at CNN scrambled to cover their filthy tracks yesterday. The implication of course being that then-Candidate Trump was fully aware in advance of this meeting and approved of it, something President Trump has consistently denied.

In a story hilariously headlined as being somehow “Exclusive”, CNN meekly informed its tiny online audience that “Senate investigators have obtained new information showing Donald Trump Jr.’s mysterious phone calls ahead of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting were not with his father, three sources with knowledge of the matter told CNN.”

Oh.  You don’t say. Tell us more.

“Records provided to the Senate Intelligence Committee show the calls were between Trump Jr. and two of his business associates, the sources said, and appear to contradict Democrats’ long-held suspicions that the blocked number was from then-candidate Donald Trump.”

You have to love the phrasing there. To be clear and actually honest – in direct contrast to CNN’s daily practices – it isn’t just the “Democrats” who have been promoting the massive lies about what was a simple and completely legal meeting in which Trump, Jr. and a few others working on the Trump Campaign thought they might get some intel on their Democrat opponents. CNN digital and on-air personnel have been happily and incessantly doing the same for a year and a half now.

And it hasn’t been limited to CNN, oh, no. We’ve seen the same sort of yellow fake journalism about this meeting from the New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC and the whole of the fake news media establishment – a literal orgy of fake news gluttony about a single 40-minute meeting, the type of which any presidential campaign is going to conduct with outside sources several times a week.

Meanwhile, these same fake media outlets have to literally be forced into superficially mentioning the fact that the Pantsuit Princess’s campaign and the DNC shelled out MILLIONS of dollars paying the Perkins Coie law firm and Fusion GPS to coordinate with Russian agents to compile the fake Trump Dossier that has served as basically the sole basis for the last two years of endless and mindless investigations.

Bug-eyed Adam Schiff, the main “Democrat” referenced in the CNN report as having tirelessly pushed this fake story, must be devastated. Remember, when Donald Trump, Jr. testified behind closed doors before the House Intelligence Committee last year, details about his testimony were leaked to CNN while the hearing was still ongoing. The initial CNN report aired just minutes after Schiff had mysteriously left the hearing room for a few moments. Such a coincidence there.

In case you missed it, acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker told the leering press on Monday that he has been fully briefed on the Mueller Witch Hunt and believes it will be wrapped up soon. This came as a big shock to all the leftwingers who still cling to the belief that Mueller is going to just keep going throughout the duration of the Trump presidency, but I told you that it was pretty obvious last September that Mueller was in the process of slowly winding the thing down.

The reason why Mueller is likely to wrap it all up soon and issue his final report is exemplified by the collapse of this fake Trump Tower Meeting story: He is holding a big bag of nothing when it comes to  “Russia Collusion” and that bag has a bunch of leaks. The entire thing is a fantasy constructed by the Democrats and the fake news media, and, as Alan Dershowitz pointed out earlier this week, Mueller has yet to indict any American on any charge related to what his mission was supposed to be.

You can’t indict a sitting President on smoke and mirrors, and at the end of the day, that is all Mueller has. Time to wrap up this stain on our nation’s history. Long past time, in fact.

It’s 100% sure to work. – The simplest and surest way to get the Democrats and fake news media to stop trying to normalize pedophilia and infanticide in our society would be for President Trump to endorse both practices.  Then, all the Democrats and fake reporters would immediately be, like, totally against them. It’s a foolproof plan.

Ocasio Cortez Update! – She’s like an 8 year-old who just completed her first piano recital:

So now we know she’s pretty adept at reading a script prepared by others. Cool. Now, if she can master the practice of taking both sides of every issue depending on what audience she happens to be talking to, she’ll be just like a real member of congress.

Fake News, WaPo Headline Edition. – Check out how the news fakers at the Washington Post attempted to turn the Virginia Democrats-supporting-infanticide incident into a negative for the Republicans, and Ben Shapiro’s astute response:

Hey, you knew Planned Parenthood had to be pushing the infanticide bills. – Another bit of news from our You Don’t Say! department:

Some things in life are just too predictable.
