    Default US Politics - All Things Pete Buttigieg

    Since Pete Buttigieg is getting more press all the time and looks to be the Democratic frontrunner, this thread is for posts about him that may not quite fit into other threads.

    Puppet Pete Says Revolution And The Status Quo Aren’t Mutually Exclusive


    (a snippet)
    "The world’s first laboratory-grown presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg met with boos and chants of “Wall Street Pete” at a recent Democratic Party event in New Hampshire for taking a dig at the revolution-minded rhetoric favored by Bernie Sanders and his supporters.

    “We cannot risk dividing Americans’ future further, saying that you must either be for a revolution or you must be for the status quo,” Buttigieg said. “Let’s make room for everybody in this movement.”

    This is a talking point that the tightly scripted and focus group-tested Buttigieg has been repeatedly regurgitating all month, so it’s worth taking a look at.

    Claiming that it isn’t necessary to choose between revolution and the status quo is claiming that you can change the status quo without any kind of revolution. You are saying that the establishment which has created and reinforced the status quo can now suddenly, for some strange and mysterious reason, be counted upon to change it. That the status quo will change the status quo."

    I don't usually get my news from stand up comics, but Lee Camp does a good (and humorous) stand up on Buttigieg and what's strange about him. It is the first 10 minutes of this video and just going over his resume requires a little black humor:



    Even Caitlin Johnstone describes Pete B. best with a bit of irony in one of her tweets:

    Quote @caitoz

    Things that are more real than Pete Buttigieg:
    - Milli Vanilli
    - aspartame
    - astroturf
    - boobs in LA
    - smiles at a Martha's Vineyard cocktail party
    - the Gulf of Tonkin incident
    - Bryan Williams' helicopter crash
    - Joy Reid's time travelling hackers
    - Epstein's suicide

    Pete Buttigieg will be the new war hawk if he every gets to Washington D.C. It seems he's against all the wars that he couldn't have voted on (Iraq, Afghanistan) because he was not in Washington, but he's for all the upcoming ones. And he doesn't just want more troops in the Middle East, he wants them in Mexico too. Tulsi Gabbard calls him on his war mongering.

    You can tell that you watch MSM and get your news from it.

    He is definitely not the front runner but the MSM would want you to think that. Look at numbers of voters for both Iowa and NH and it is Sanders by a mile. He got the most vote in both of those places Yet Pete somehow is tied for delegates.

    It should tell you all something that Sanders is being targeted not only by the DNC as they are trying to rig it against Sanders again like they did in 2016 but also the MSM is very against sanders as Franny has shown us.

    Sanders is the front runner by like ten points.

    By the Way, for those who actually care about our imperialism, Sanders has stated that by the end of his first term we will not be occupying Afghanistan.

    Liars, lies and more liars and lies: top to bottom, front to back, left to right and all the way around.

    By the way, I disagree that Buttigieg is the “world’s first laboratory-grown presidential candidate.” In my book that title goes to Barry Sotero, a/k/a Barrack Hussein Obama.

    Well said Dennis
    Just quoting the words of Caitlin Johnstone, the current writer with - I believe - the clearest view of Ameri-centric geopolitics. One of her salient observations is recognizing that "narrative control" is the oligarch/empire's greatest weapon against us. Her observation dovetails with or underscores Avalon member 'waves' observation of the need to take away the oligarchs' narrative control mechanism (that waves posted in the 'state of disunion' thread I started.)

    "Frontrunner" and "Democrat frontrunner" (meaning the person that the Democrat corporation is apparently selecting) are not the same thing, and I think Franny is making that distinction and providing this thread to examine the misanthrope that the DNC may very well pre-select.

    I think it is actually very likely that we all, at least once in a while, watch the MSM just so we can know what "their" BS narrative of the day is. Members of this forum are all of high quality and I think just to have a membership in this forum you would almost have to be awake to that basic fact that MSM lies!

    Agreed.

    And by both of those accounts Sanders is still the person( even against trump. ).
    Trump himself is the most worried about Sanders and was back when Hilary could have VP him.

    By any measure, Sanders is both the Frontrunner in the overall race and as the Democratic Nominee, even despite the DNC trying to rat **** him again.

    And they should be afraid. I actually believe that Sanders has a good chance of making real change for the better. At the very least stopping the occupation of Afghanistan which he has stated he will stop by the first term. Then Legalizing Cannabis on day one is also a huge deal for me personally(I am a Hemp farmer You have no idea how backwards hemps laws and regulations on THC % levels. It is a nightmare from the farming point of view). These two policies alone are worth having him be President IMO.

    I think there is a reason that all the DNC, RNC, and MSM are afraid of Bernie. There is a reason that they rat ****ed bernie in 2016. He won that. Clinton stole it. This to me means that they are actually scared of him and his agenda. He is on the side of Labor.

    I agree that Bernie may be the "lesser evil" among the cluster, however, the lesser evil doesn't "blow my skirt up" anymore. I have also investigated him enough to recognize rhetoric from reality, and consider him at best a paper tiger. As a Jew in the US Congress, he had a duty to support the Palestinian people, not the zionist Israelis. He failed miserably, and only changed his tune a little when it became a political sticking point. A pseudo-independent as the choice of the Democrat corporation? No way, they won't do it, and Bernie won't run as an independent (where he knows he cannot win, since the oligarch's mass media corporations are only going to support the Democrat and Republican corporate whores.) Twitter may influence an election, but it can't get the guy elected in the duopoly-controlled system.

    Further, it's important to note that the entire legislative branch and the judicial branch of the US government is composed of oligarch representatives, and will be forever, without some sort of citizen takeover of the election system. Even if elected, the only thing he could do would be to continue the (I believe unconstitutional) practice of circumventing the legislative body by writing laws as executive orders.

    Worst of all, it is the belief that someone, anyone, from within the existing US government could occupy the big seat in the oval office as a rogue against the agenda of the rest of the oligarch' armada, and prevail. I kinda wish Bernie would get elected, as yet another eye-opener as to how wide and deep the problem is, and how ineffective it would be to put one "good guy" in the white house. But then, I believed that Obama's performance, following the exact agenda as W Bush, and performing (excellently) as the prime government cover-up agent for 9/11 would open up a lot of eyes, but it didn't. Neither did Trump's adherence to the exact same agenda wake anyone up. The problem is so much bigger than just replacing the president (which is a variation on the magician's technique of having a beautiful woman with a sequin dress slit to her hips on stage, garnering the attention while the magician does what he needs to do, unnoticed.)

    I know I'm a wet blanket, but I won't allow hope to override logic. I'm an idealist, not a pragmatist. If you are a pragmatist, I don't blame you for cheering on Bernie and writing him in on the ballot you cast. (I have been ostracized by a number of former friends - real life friends - for not doing the same.)

    (And now I have to chastise myself for straying too far from the topic, Buttigieg. )

    Since Pete Buttigieg is getting more press all the time and looks to be the Democratic frontrunner, this thread is for posts about him that may not quite fit into other threads.
    Quote You can tell that you watch MSM and get your news from it.

    He is definitely not the front runner but the MSM would want you to think that. Look at numbers of voters for both Iowa and NH and it is Sanders by a mile. He got the most vote in both of those places Yet Pete somehow is tied for delegates.

    It should tell you all something that Sanders is being targeted not only by the DNC as they are trying to rig it against Sanders again like they did in 2016 but also the MSM is very against sanders as Franny has shown us.

    Sanders is the front runner by like ten points.

    By the Way, for those who actually care about our imperialism, Sanders has stated that by the end of his first term we will not be occupying Afghanistan.

    You can tell that you watch MSM and get your news from it.
    Interesting observation, but off just a bit as MSM is not where I get my 'news'. Not at all, although I do occasionally stumble across it.

    Pete appears to be the DNC choice whether or not Sanders is the choice of Democratic voters by ten points or a mile. Just as HRC was the DNC choice while Sanders was the Democratic voters choice in 2016.

    It has been said with some justification that if the HRC and DNC teams had not helped push Trump to the Republican forefront believing he was the least likely to win against her, Bernie may have won the popular presidential vote - but may have lost the Electoral College vote.

    The DNC will choose their candidate whatever the voters think, say or do and the MSM will support it. It was about at this point in 2016 that Sanders started feeling the boot on his backside nudging him out of the nomination. We'll see who the DNC chosen one is soon enough.

    Neon Revolt has run some good info on Pete. The Iowa app has Pete's fingerprints all over it. And the DNC, which means Hillary. The app was largely paid for by the Polhad family. Now there's a duesy of a rabbit hole. Hillary has stated that she does not want Bernie to be the nominee. Thus the support for Pete. I have serious doubts that any gay person could be elected President. The country as a whole is not ready for that. What a clown show.

    George Webb Mystery Buttigieg Torpedoes From Norfolk, Home Of Libya Ops and Cassandra
    Feb 26, 202


    Review and transcript from Alexandra Bruce, Forbidden Knowledge https://forbiddenknowledgetv.net/mys...ieg-torpedoes/

    "George Webb is at it again, with a veritable Finnegan's Wake of fraud and intrigue, where he's found that so many people in recent headlines were involved in illicit weapons diversion schemes, using funds from the Iraq- and Afghanistan Reconstruction projects.

    The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction recently corroborated what Webb has been saying for the past three years, when he admitted that some 85% of the $30 billion allocated to Afghan reconstruction (mostly from the US) was "not absorbed" by Afghanistn, i.e., it was diverted.

    Webb says that his recent posts, connecting Pete Buttigieg to Africa have drawn the ire of a follower who's in the Navy Reserve but that these attacks have proven to be enlightening.

    "Just by getting one missile shot at you, there's a tremendous amount of metadata that you can learn...Sometimes, I think the conspirators here are trying to get caught...because the metadata is so voluminous...

    "So who shot the latest missile at George Webb and the people here on our channel? Well, you guessed it, it's a Navy guy...He spent a lot of years in the Navy and he spent a lot of years with Tomahawk missiles...He was on several different ships that were surface warfare ships that fired Cruise missiles; Tomahawk missiles into Kosovo...

    "When Obama was asked who was gonna win the election; who would be the next person they would consider, as a big front runner, he named an unknown mayor at that time from South Bend, Indiana...He named a pretty unknown guy as a presidential contender. Everybody said, 'Who the heck is Pete Buttigieg?'

    "...So, I was interested, because this guy was in the Horn of Africa...and he seemed to be saying, 'At all costs, do not connect Pete Buttigieg with Africa.'

    "Now, he's from Norfolk. He's currently got a Hale & Associates-type private security firm. I believe he does electronic security, sort of like Task Force Orange used to do, but electronic security, operational security, information assurance. That type of thing; probably defense against cyber-hacking and other things. I don't know what all Hale does, but he's a very knowledgeable guy and he's obviously served our country but he was also in the State Department.

    "He was a liaison to the country of Djibouti....Now, this is a country that has a long history of money-laundering and a long history of dealing in illegal weapons, because it's so small.

    "The Horn of Africa...you've got four little tiny countries and one very badly war-torn country in Somalia. But you've got this little tiny country of Djibouti, a very small country of Eritrea.

    "Now, why would Peter Strzok choose to target Djibouti or target Eritrea? Because, those are very easy governments to control. Those are very easy governments to do banking with. Those are very easy governments to launder money through...

    "When you start getting torpedoes or missiles; Tomahawk Cruise missiles from Djibouti, you know, there's great metadata there! I mean, that's like a white chocolate-covered crossbow, in terms of metadata. There's not a lot of those in the world, you know?

    "...So, it does very much bring out a part of history that is very pivotal to understanding how this money...of Iraq and how the money of Afghanistan [Reconstruction] was diverted to the Horn of Africa. And again, diverting it into a very small country, like Djibouti or what I say is Somalia, through some warlords in Somalia is a way of draining the very large war budgets that are going into Iraq and into Afghanistan.

    "If it was me, what I would do is I would have huge amounts of weapons, let's say missiles sent to Iraq. I would have a guy like Odey, a person in-country do Middle East trading; in some way get a hold of these missiles, somehow loosen these missiles from Iraq and then fly them down, under the auspices of a Task Force Orange, Top Secret program; fly them down to a secret airbase called KS-50 in the southern part of Somalia.

    "I'd load up and then I would trade these weapons. I'd give these weapons to warlords...that I was helping finance in the drug business.

    "Now, I'm not saying that Pete Buttigieg is doing that, with the finance cell that he was in, the Afghan Finance Cell but what I am saying is, this Ken Hale said, 'Well, produce for me some evidence that Buttigieg was in the Horn of Africa.'

    You can produce what they call a Fitness Report. A Fitness Report is basically your assignment, your orders...I produced four of 'em...four requisitions, if you will, that say Buttigieg was in Africa as an intelligence officer in surveillance...

    "This is somebody who's already probably hacked, with his software - this Shadow software that he's involved in - already hacked the Iowa election. He's in South Carolina right now, in an yet again, another election...we have the footprints, the smoking gun, already from Iowa, that he's involved in this Shadow hacking, so we have to take this seriously...

    "Why would this person say there's no Fit Reps, when I'm showing him four Fit Reps where it says Pete Buttigieg was in Africa and he was in former Yugoslavia?

    "...Would Pete Strzok know where the weapons caches were in Kosovo? Yeah. What if you were trying to move the weapons caches from Kosovo to arm some warlords in Somalia? Wouldn't it just be a matter of Buttigieg going to Kosovo and flying them down to KS-50 in an Eclipse Aviation, in an Ekim Alptekin plane?

    "Remember, this is another DARPA plane that these guys are flying, this Eclipse Aviation plane they've spent $500 million in DARPA for Electronic Warfare (EW) to defeat NATO radar. There's no way that they would know that the weapons were being moved from Kosovo to then being moved.

    "And let's say you were going to do a campaign like Arab Spring, wouldn't it make sense that when Peter Strzok came back in power, he would bring his cronies in - and remember, Buttigieg was brought in with no training as a lieutenant - and all of a sudden now, Buttigieg is in Africa and Kosovo, right? Wouldn't it make sense that that...you would be at a drone base, like let's say Djibouti, which is a drone base or Fort Huachuca, which is a drone base?

    "Wouldn't it make sense that you would want to do flyovers near a border area to take out the border defenses? Isn't that exactly what happened in Tobruk from Egypt? Isn't that exactly what happened on the border of Tripoli from Tunisia? Wasn't there also a southern prong coming up from Uganda, coming through Sudan and Uganda? Wasn't there also southern prong there?

    "Wouldn't it make sense that you would take money that was intended for Afghan[istan] and Pakistan and...you would basically leave bread crumbs and say...'Osama bin Laden has left... Afghanistan and they've gone to the Horn of Africa.'

    "Why do you have them go to the Horn of Africa? Because Osama bin Laden was holed-up in Sudan. Why do you go there? So you can cache weapons there, so you can divert money there. And we're not speculating that money was diverted there. We know it's diverted there.

    "We're actually going through the contracts of the Iraq Reconstruction Fund. Everybody I've seen in all these trials, the only thing that I see in all these Manafort trials, Flynn trials, all of all these people - Papadopoulos, Carter Page - all these sagas, the only thing that I see is weapons-brokering.

    "Papadopoulos: weapons-brokering; Page: missiles, weapons-brokering; Mike Flynn, Task Force Orange: encrypted phones; Paul Manafort: weapons brokering. It's all weapons-brokering!

    "It's all about - all the people who - the Farooqi trial that I went to - all about diversion of weapons but they were supposed to go to Afghanistan... they still have the contract, by the way for Afghanistan, Pakistan, after diverting our weapons for our soldiers and food and trucks through Bandar Abbas, an Iranian Revolutionary Guard port, okay?

    "Remember, how closely-associated Farooqi was with the DNC? We're not guessing. We know that the Afghan Reconstruction [Funds] were diverted there. We know the Iraqi money was diverted there.

    "Wait, if you don't believe me and my three years of reports, well, guess who just came out and agreed with me? The head Inspector General for Iraq, a guy named Sopko just came out and said, 'Oh, by the way, 85% of the money was diverted.'

    "I'd imagine, if he's the Special Investigator General, the SIGAR ...wouldn't he know if the money was diverted not? Why is he saying 85% of the money was diverted to the Horn of Africa?

    Why is he saying that? I'm not saying that - I was for three years - but now he's agreeing with me. Why is he saying it? Because it was.

    "So sometimes - and this is interesting - because this guy, Ken Hale is the country leader, the top diplomatic guy from the military, in the relationship with Djibouti, which is really super interesting, because they had a secret drone base in Djibouti.

    "And you have Pete Buttigieg running around with General Dunford, right? Four-Star, Baby - and now he's running the Joint Chiefs of Staff - that's Numero Uno, right.

    "We're not talking about somebody who's kind of a bit player, here. And they developed the RQ-21, sort of a marine vertical takeoff - no, like a Jeep-launched drone. It's a big. It's about the size of a Jeep.

    "I don't know, it seems like there's a lot of drone in this story. There's an awful lot of drone and there's a lawful a lot of people, like General Atomics and these cutaway businesses, like Carter Page is doing, that just seems to be the double-dip; just seems to be everywhere you turn, the reconstruction money is being diverted and these little cabal - small cabal not a big group of people - are are basically creating these little companies and using these Imran Awans to basically take down the contracts." "

    ***********************************
    It's difficult to connect the dots for certain in the story above, but here is some background about Buttigieg: https://www.thefamouspeople.com/prof...gieg-34920.php
    And why did Obama predict back when Buttigieg was Mayor of South Bend, that he would be a political candidate to watch?
