Buttilieg's list of sins continues to grow - Jimmy Dore just covered this: 'Facebook Censoring Reporting On Buttigieg Cheating':

youtube.com/watch?v=tfQ7Zo6m9yg

I informed a friend about the real Buttigieg and was told "we shouldn't be infighting now - need to be unified to stand against Trump." Except we NEED to vet our candidates or we'll end up with another corporatist - what happens when the Dem base contnually refuses to recognize them as such?

Thanks so much for highlighting this excellent article & the shout out, Meryl Ann.

The dirty Dems are pushing Sneaky Pete hard and fast and their hoping nobody takes the time to get to know him. A good rule of thumb is to reject instantly anyone the media propagandists push on you as they have been "approved" by the Establishment as one they can control and that is all that matters to them. If a candidate gets media approval they are not for the average person.

Sneaky Pete's only concern is how he, himself, can be enriched and if that means giving up his soul so be it. On the flip side of Sneaky Pete is Tulsi Gabbard who has the personal characteristics to be a President we can be proud of, but who will not be a puppet to the dirty Dem corruption and she is being smeared and completely silenced by the media propagandist machine. Those same media gerbils are now attempting to silence Bernie Sanders. In the recent New Hampshire voting while Sanders won the disgusting press is highlighting the 3rd place finisher, their second "darling" to defeat Sanders. Trump is not their target as they would prefer a Trump victory over a Sanders one because Trump is proving to be more controllable plus he favors profits to the same corporate interests and special interest groups who pay both the Dirty Dems and the corrupt GOP. After all, aren't they both in this together?

Getting back to Sneaky Pete don't be surprised to see him deliver a victory speech on February 21 in the Nevada caucus similar to the one in Iowa before the falsified results were even tallied. Now Emily Goodman resigned from the Buttigieg campaign to become the Voter Protection Director for the Democratic Party of Nevada. A nice fancy title but is it the voters who need protection or the results of information the voters provide?

One question I have is, If it is a felony offense to tamper with the U.S. mail why is tampering with vote in elections considered one as well? After all, don't they tell us that it is elections that are the cornerstone of any Democracy?

Well said. I am working on a similar article, much shorter, that is really going to ruffle a lot of feathers. Better do that now than wait to see Trump re-elected, eh?

Well we have Donald Trump who is supported by about 80% of Republicans and Pete B. who is supported by a substantial number of Democrats. It seems to me that the problem is not with the elected officials and/or candidates. It's actually the American voter. And I'm afraid that problem is well beyond the scope and reach of "politics".

God (quite literally) help us.

He's so fake that people are starting to call him the "White Obama."

He differs from Kamala Harris, the first "darling" of the corrupt DNC, in that he is only a little better at thinking "off script" than she was. Tulsi Gabbard trashed her in just 8 minutes and had Sneaky Pete reeling, stammering, and staring into the headlights is less time. That is the main reason the DNC did all they could to keep Gabbard off the debate stage as she was single-handedly eliminating the choice puppets of the DNC.

It is probably hopeless this time around with the DNC's flying monkeys in charge of everything, but I hope she will come out of this with name recognition and a solid reputation for honesty that will give her an advantage when the Democrats come to their senses and look for a real leader.

I imagine there is a place for Tulsi in Bernie's cabinet, although it's probably prudent for him to wait til after he is elected to mention that...

You are right on both counts. The real shame of this is Tulsi is the best individual for the position of President. She has the personality, the knowledge, the experience, the compassion, the morals, and the, as she has stated, the balls needed to be the President that would make us be proud of. As an additional plus she would be the best example of a 1st woman, a woman of color on top of that, to go into the history of our nation.


Unfortunately, people and the presstitute gerbils still are controlled by Hillary Clinton.
