Progressives Strike Back After Pete Buttigieg Dirty Tricks


Pete Buddha judge continues his bad faith attacks on Bernie Sanders and he claims that Sanders is taking super PAC money But that’s actually not the case at all He’s taking PAC money from progressive organizations. But the way that people judge is fundraising makes it appear as though Bernie Sanders is being corrupted by corporate PACs So Buddha judge came under fire from progressives after claiming in a series of tweets Thursday evening that his rival for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination senator Bernie Sanders is being backed by nine dark money groups and likening the Vermont senator to billionaire Michael Bloomberg So here’s what he wrote in a series of tweets, by the way, and it was his attempt at fundraising he said but here’s the reality with Michael Bloomberg in the race and with nine dark money groups supporting Bernie Sanders the goal posts have changed now some of the organizations that have backed Bernie Sanders have responded Including the sunrise movement which gave people who to judge a very simple message say our names people to judge We dare you which I particularly enjoy also the nine groups as the Democratic socialists of America pointed out in a tweet our grassroots organizations powered by people of color immigrants youth Working-class people and democracy defenders and here’s what that tweet looked like it was a list of all of the different groups that support Bernie Sanders all of which support Disenfranchised Americans. So what do you guys think about this? There’s a lot of bad faith actors out there putting forward a lot of bad faith attacks on people who are trying to do good In the world, we would know a lot about that. So I just wanted to get your thoughts on what’s going on, right? I’m currently wondering if by Organizations of color is that what Pete Buddha judge accidentally meant by dark money like that time? He flubs that statement when he was referring to Money of unspecified origin which has been talked about a lot on the show the role of money in politics But it’s funny that people judge says that Bernie has moved the goalposts when like Pete burgers the king of moving the goalposts he moved The goalposts with Medicare for all making it Medicare for all who wanted and he’s moving the goalposts on dark money He originally ran saying that he wasn’t going to take this suspicious like corporate money He at least like changed the terms versus corporate money versus super PAC money. It’s all muddy now barely means anything’ anymore. But like Pete has turned around on that and it’s taking as many Corporate donors as he can We called him wine cave Pete for a reason and it’s funny because when you just were trying to explain it you were saying Money of unknown origin. I really thought you were gonna say money of color That really had me in that moment because we know pigeons kind of struggles between dark money and black money and but anyway So struggles with black people, but yes, very true. Yeah, that’d be it um I think that this is all kind of a reflection of that the fact that he’s not winning in What would be a fair way by addressing? issues that he has with communities of color or more or less issues they have with him and his failure to acknowledge his problem so to speak and really kind of just going low and really trying to knock down Bernie as opposed to addressing the actual facts and what we have going on and it just seems like He’s he’s almost conceding the fact that he’s not doing as well By virtue of the fact that he’s really just making this a nonsense statement and trying to attribute it to Bernie Sanders campaign yeah, I mean he’s Ripping a page out of the neoliberal playbook This is the way that they operate they don’t have policy proposals that are popular with the people They don’t have a message that resonates with people he doesn’t have the ability to plant the seeds for a movement that matters and so he just has to play dirty politics and Prey on the vulnerable to spread his nonsense propaganda that’s easily easily Debunk Abul and that’s what we’re talking about right here now I think that there could be a fair discussion about whether candidates should take PAC money period right whether it’s a Non corporate PAC or corporate tax corporate PACs Certainly are much worse considering the corruption that comes along with it the inherent corruption But I could argue the same when it comes to other non corporate PACs as well. So I think that’s fair game, but he’s purposely coming from a place of dishonesty here and people have called him out and I’m grateful that that happens because far too often the truth never comes out and People get painted in an unfair way. Yeah, and if I could speak like listen, we’ll get another in a series of Instances in which the people who judge campaign has been very much truthful I do love to dwell in it because I will make this the hill I die on the thing about Peter Budaj He constantly claims. He has black support. He doesn’t never mind the thing I’ve heart Don about where he Faked black support in South Bend when the people of color in South Bend really doesn’t like the way that he handled things as mayor Never mind The Douglass plan where he lied about people’s names being on it that where black who supported his plan for racial justice that neither Provided racial justice or was even endorsed by those people and even this recently this week He said that keegan-michael key of key and Peele Fame Endorsed him when all he was doing was going to a gal to vote event for him He’s this desperate to show that he has support that isn’t there and it’s the patterns I wanted to point it because this is how he would govern his president he would promise these things and then immediately turn behind your back with the same can’t speak Spanish smile and Just lie to the people. Look. I know I know that I I’m Armenian, but I get it I’m blond I have light skin So I feel weird making this comment as a white looking woman, right? But I just hate the way race politics is discussed in the horse race I think that it makes people feel like nothing more than objects that need to be won or obtained and like Even well-meaning people on the Left when they’re running like whether it’s congressional races or this presidential race People are people they have lives they have unique experiences and world views like they the way that people judge especially, you know, just kind of wants to Own people for his campaign or pretend like people are supporting him or endorsing him. It’s gross It’s all of it is gross and I hate the way that the horse race is discussed in the media by these candidates These are people So how about instead of pretending like certain people endorse you? Why don’t you actually address the very real issues that were in your own? hometown or I shouldn’t say hometown, but your own small town that you were the mayor of no exactly and I Completely and totally appreciate the point you make because essentially you can tell when a candidate does not have good relations necessarily with a group because they essentially treat that group number one like it’s Right, but number two like I just need to get like your head liaisons and that means your all are gonna support me as opposed to getting to know the issues that impact us on a daily basis and Leaving room for us to have our own individuality and nuances as well. And it’s just it’s remarkable how so many Individuals want leadership positions yet. They haven’t even tried to figure out what are the issues important to the people They want to lead and I think the Democratic Party has taken the black vote for granted over and over and over again and so I don’t I don’t think that the african-american community is a monolith, and I certainly Don’t buy the narrative that bad faith actors like Candis Owens tries to push right? but I do think that for the very honest critique of the Democratic Party and how they haven’t actually Served the the unique obstacles for african-americans in America that that’s legitimate That’s a legitimate critique Legitimate concern something that should be addressed and it shouldn’t just be something to exploit for political gain during an election Thanks for watching The Young Turks who really appreciate it. Another way to show support is through YouTube memberships You’ll get to interact with us more. There’s live chat emojis badges Kind of approaches of me Anna John jr. So those are super fun. But you also get playback of our exclusive member only shows and Specials right after they air so all that all you got to do is click that join button right underneath the video. Thank you

    The young jerks are nothing but a propaganda machine for Bernie Sanders. I lived in a socialist country. The high taxes are suffocating. A vote for Bernie is a vote of ignorance. Shame on anyone who votes for a Socialist. Bernie will strangle your freedoms and smile while he does it.

    Pete Butterface is human trash and if he runs and God helps us if wins the nomination the difference between him and trump is not enough to make me vote . I see differences as being screwed by a loud mouth buffoon or a little slick snake lying to face

    I hate when candidates throw dirt at each other especially when you are in the same party. I said it before; present your case on issues as to why you are the best candidate for the presidency; tell us why you are the best on issues and how you're going to make them work.

    I loose respect for you and don't want to hear you. If you can't stand together on issues and present the best case on your own merits then step aside. When I see you stand divided it makes me turn away and not support you. In this case you force people to choose the lesser evil. Shame on you.

    And by the way, I will never support trump.

    3:42 is a very important point for getting all monetary corruption out of politics, which is one of the major points I support Sanders, for his position on Government funded and monetarily controlled elections. There's absolutely no positive reason to receive any sort of outside contributions, and no matter how that is managed it leaves the door open for some sort of corruption.

    0:46 pete-the-cheat: But here's the reality: With Michael Bloomberg in the race and with nine dark money groups supporting Bernie Sanders, the goal posts have chagned.
    Said the candidate with the most billionaires funding him (46)

    But here's the reality: "Here is what happened …."

    cute: Because the potential voters are gonna believe that. About the man that stands for Money out of politics, that made his reputation with small donor campaigns.

    And here I thought pete was supposed to be intelligent !
    The attempts to fake support with black leaders in SC, and then faking the endorsement of a black business owner in South Bend were really stupid – but I assumed his team had messed that up.

    Pete Buttigieg is nothing more than the Lindsay Graham from the Democratic Party, weak unfocused. Everything is so slick and calculated, he calls himself a veteran. I bet he figured a few months in Afghanistan in a cushy safe zone would look good on his resume. He will compromise and is willing to compromise himself and just to get his hands on the wheels and levers of power. Buttigieg is a cancer within the Democratic Party and quickly needs to be stopped and blunted. Bernie Sanders may well be our last BEST HOPE.

    Why are you focusing on Buttigieg and not discussing that Warren is also attacking Bernie with this same false argument. Because you are making it look like Buttigieg is doing this and Warren isn't I'm giving this a thumbs down. FYI, Ana you are "White" if there's such a thing.

    To me it has become increasingly obvious that the problem in the US is twofold. On one hand it still after all this time has a legacy of its racial history that it somehow hasn't managed to address. Which brings me to the second, in attempting to address it people will tend to look at demographic groups by RACE (and such) and not as individuals, which in certain contexts does make perfect sense and is necessary, but I think the US went too far and ended up with ID politics. With people themselves identifying along those group identifications because the system and society constantly forces them to. I think that much of the problem currently is that the thinking is simplistic, lacking nuance, and often forgets that people are individuals with very different experiences. The tools we have are good at highlighting systemic problems, but they don't seem to be very good at fixing them.

    Pete doesn't even disclose where and when his "fundraising" events are with corp PACs, but takes a cheap shot at Bernie because he's can't stand to lose gracefully. Pete will fight for white elites and corporations NOT the working class and people of color. Bernie 2020!!!

    Earlier this week Buttigieg was dismissing Sanders supporters and calling us "toxic" and demanding that Sanders apologize for us at the dem debate. Fast forward to the end of the week and Buttigieg is the toxic one. What he's really mad at is the diverse base of support from black and brown people Sanders has that Buttigieg lacks. He's the picture of "White Privilege". I demand Buttigieg apologize for his toxicity and "Harvard Bro" mentality that is on display here. He's like a spoiled child who had his toy taken away. What a hypocrite!

    Buttigieg kind of reminds me of Roger Bannister in The Stepford Wives, after he’d been “stepforded” and ran for office.

    The title of this comment is "What if they held an election and nobody came?"

    The 2020 election figures to be every bit as divisive as the last presidential election, if not moreso. In that one, it pitted one of the Washington establishment against someone who presented himself as an outsider. It should have come as no great shock that the "oustider" won. It almost didn't matter who the "outsider" was. Bonzo the Chimp could have beaten Hillary Clinton by attacking media, calling his opponent a criminal and promising to drain swamps. Some might say that Bonzo did exactly that. Some might wish it was Bonzo and not the ass-clown who occupies the Oval Office. This time around, it might come down to the same thing, only in reverse. The swing voters, the ones who vote more on their view of the competence, integrity and character of the candidate, will likely vote against Trump the same way they voted against Hillary Clinton in 2016. "Politics", as in liberal vs conservative, will probably not decide the next election.

    WARNING: If you suffer from ADHD and prefer to get all of your insight into government from CIA Operation Mockingbird Media in the form of talking points, stop now. This will be too long for you. If you can't set aside your politics, even for a few minutes, stop now. I'm not here to debate "politics", as in the phony left-right, D vs R, paradigm.

    Most Americans believe in democracy. They believe that voting is a civic duty and one that presents them with an opportunity to change the course being charted for them by those in power. They lament that so many Americans don't bother to vote, and some of them point fingers at those Americans who stay home for whatever reason. I'm here to tell you that YOU would be better off staying home on election day, that all of us would be better off if, instead of 50 or 60% voter turnouts, it was 5%. I'm also here to tell you that you have another, far more important civic duty. You have a duty to dissent when your government commits crimes that you can prove.

    I'm going to make the case that voting offers no opportunity to change the course being charted by this government. I'm going to make the case that this election, and all elections in this "pretend democracy", are a sham and that the only real hope to change the course lies in DISSENT. Not voting is just one form of dissent. There are others, of course. I'm going to make this argument by asking a few simple questions and giving you the answers to those questions. These are "puffball questions", IMO, and the answers are either obvious or factual in the sense that they can be proved.

    Q1. What was the biggest news story, the most heinous single-day crime and most significant political event of the 21st Century?

    A1. 9/11. It was mass murder, a terrorist attack on US soil that spawned a "War on Terror". One month later, Congress passed the Patriot Act leading ultimately to a Surveillance State that is so massive and invasive that no one has any expectation of privacy. Within a year, we were at war in two countries, and those wars continue to this day. The conduct of the wars and maintainance of this massive Surveillance State cost US taxpayers trillions. Indeed, if not for a $20 Trillion bailout to "save the banking system", they would account for all of the national debt. 9/11 has defined US foreign and domestic policy and altered the US economy for 18 years.

    Q2. What caused three WTC skyscrapers to collapse on 9/11?

    A2. Shaped-charge explosives placed on all the major columns. That's a fact that can be proved in any court in the world. Indeed, there is so much evidence proving that and which renders the "progressive collapse due to fires" narrative 100% impossible that ANY LEGITIMATE ENGINEERING INVESTIGATION INTO THE COLLAPSE OF THOSE THREE BUILDINGS WOULD HAVE MADE THAT DETERMINATION IN A MATTER OF DAYS. Once you prove controlled demolition, you have proved a false flag. Surely, no rational person could believe that 19 Muslim fanaltics, having wired those building with enough explosives to bring them down, would then jeopardize their operation and commit suicide by hijacking planes and crashing them into the Towers. The hijackings and the planes crashing into the Towers were the "blind" needed to create the scapegoats for this crime. I could speculate as to who those 19 "terrroists" were, whether those planes were commercial jets or drones and on many other aspects of the operation, but I don't need to prove any of that. I can prove that the buildings were bought down by shaped-charge explosives, and that's all I have to prove.

    Q3. Which of the viable candidates for POTUS or for Congress, and which incumbent Members of Congress, have ever told the truth about 9/11?

    A3. None, or at least none that I know of. Indeed, we have approached virtually every Member of Congress over the last 15 or so years with a mountain of evidence that would lead anyone with an IQ over 70 to know that 9/11 was a false flag, and we've yet to find even one who would simply honor the sworn oath of office, obey and uphold the law, protect Americans from mass-murdering terrorists, who would just say "no" to the CIA and MIC. NOT ONE. We've also approached the DoJ, FBI, other "law enforcement" with this proof. We've naturally approached ABC, NBC, CNN, Fox, the NYT, Washington Post and every major media outlet. That has amounted to walking straight into CIA HQ and asking them to confess to being psychopathic criminals.

    I'm not here to pick on Bernie Sanders. I've always liked him, or at least I did like him until I became, in September 2008, one of the countless victims of the Surveillance State. I've been a targeted individual for over 11 years. For us, things like MK-Ultra, COINTELPRO, Project Pandora, gang-stalking, gaslighting, attempts to corrupt then coerce, blacklisting and more are not just words or acronyms. They're a life sentence of the most insidious form of state-sponsored terrorism. We've tried to get Bernie and many others like him, "public servants" that we thought stood for something better than this, to intervene. It's been a waste of time.

    A wise man once said…

    "No problem can be solved by the same level of consciousness that created it." — Albert Einstein

    You can't solve a problem if you don't even know what the problem is, and you can't solve it by denying that it exists. The problem is a government hijacked. The problem is state-controlled media. The problem is a Shadow Government — ie, the Federal Reserve, CIA, NSA, FBI, 100 agencies armed to the teeth with space-aged technology who spy on everyone and who operate without any oversight from anyone in Congress and whose crimes are protected by absolute control of access to all major media. That's the problem, whether you know it or not, and neither Bernie Sanders nor anyone else you might be able to elect as POTUS or to Congress offers a solution to this problem. That solution is up to YOU. YOU must dissent. It's your civic duty to dissent. If you fail to dissent, you have no one to blame except yourselves…

    "They who do not punish evil command it to be done." — Leonardo da Vinci

    NOTE: If any of you doubt the answer I've given to Q2, now is your chance to become informed. I won't debate politics, but as an Ivy League post-graduate educated structural engineer who worked in US national security for 30 year and who served in 20 or more engineering failure investigations including Challenger and Columbia, I will, upon request, educate you about the 9/11 evidence. I couldn't possibly describe all the evidence, but I can describe and direct you to enough of it to prove beyond any doubt that the answer I gave above is factual.

    I liked Pete at first or rather I liked his early speeches in that there were things in the message that were very attractive, and still are.. Like the need to reach out, discuss and care about mutual understanding, there was a certain boldness in that considering socio-political climate, and scents of positivism, I liked that… Boy did that changed since…

    Now I see no substance, I see fear, establishment interests, disingenuousness, lying…

    Now I hear him say, in typical politician hypno-speech, that the american people (of all people) are grossly incompetent, that's what he saying when you really listen…

    He is saying that despite living in the greatest economy, they cannot do what every other modern societies have done, and provide healthcare as a human right to its citizens… Nope, France can, Germany can, Canada & Japan can, hey Israel can too… But somehow, nope, America can't… And he wants to lead????

    Someone will show him what leadership is, the people will by voting Sanders and send him packing… Pete won't survive super Tuesday…
