Seemingly out of nowhere, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana has made a name for himself in the 2020 Democrat presidential race.

Does Pete Buttigieg stand a chance against Bernie Sanders or anyone else? Probably not, at the end of the day.

However, Pete has a big secret Democrats might just really, really love.

From Washington Examiner:

The father of Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg was a Marxist professor who spoke fondly of the Communist Manifesto and dedicated a significant portion of his academic career to the work of Italian Communist Party founder Antonio Gramsci, an associate of Vladimir Lenin.

Joseph Buttigieg, who died in January at the age of 71, immigrated to the U.S. in the 1970s from Malta and in 1980 joined the University of Notre Dame faculty, where he taught modern European literature and literary theory. He supported an updated version of Marxism that jettisoned some of Marx and Engel’s more doctrinaire theories, though he was undoubtedly Marxist.

Continued:

He was an adviser to Rethinking Marxism, an academic journal that published articles “that seek to discuss, elaborate, and/or extend Marxian theory,” and a member of the editorial collective of Boundary 2, a journal of postmodern theory, literature, and culture. He spoke at many Rethinking Marxism conferences and other gatherings of prominent Marxists.

Ain’t that something?

Check out Pete’s thoughts on the Electoral College. He’s not a fan…

President Trump’s 2020 campaign slogan is “Keep America Great.”

Based on who Democrats have as contenders, it would seem as though 45 will have no problem keeping America great.

And yet, at least one candidate thinks it wise to run on the GOP side.

His name is Bill Weld, former governor of Massachusetts and 2016 Libertarian vice presidential candidate.

In other words, Weld is a liberal.

In 2016, Weld called for gun control:

Save conservative media!

Watch: Biden Claims 150 Million People Killed By Guns Since 2007, Warns Manufacturers He’s Coming

He’s only off by 148.5 million, so…

You’re probably reading that headline and saying to yourself, Nah, Joe didn’t say 150 million people were killed by guns since 2007. There’s no way even he would say something that ridiculous! Well, my friends, you’d be wrong. According to the former 2020 Democrat frontrunner and soon-to-be three-time failed presidential candidate Joe Biden, his statement is accurate. 150 million people, all dead – from guns, since 2017. Just…I mean…Joe…WHAT IS THE DEAL, BRO!? The guy also said he’s coming after gun manufacturers if he’s elected. So, you’re safe, gun manufacturers.

Still a lot, obviously, but not even sorta kinda close to 150 million. From NBC News: More Americans have died from gunshots in the last 50 years than in all of the wars in American history. Since 1968, more than 1.5 million Americans have died in gun-related incidents, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. By comparison, approximately 1.2 million service members have been killed in every war in U.S. history, according to estimates from the Department of Veterans Affairs and iCasualties.org, a website that maintains an ongoing database of casualties from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Yep. He said it!

In case you forgot to tune in to Tuesday night’s Democrat debate (and there’s a decent chance you did), you missed former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (D) acknowledging that he personally “bought” a Democrat majority in the House of Representatives. Mike didn’t mean to let this slip. He caught himself, just not quickly enough. From Daily Wire: Democrat presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg said during a CBS News debate on Tuesday night that he “bought” the Democrats’ majority in the House of Representatives.

She doesn’t want to Keep America Great, either. Instead, Judy Sheidlin has decided to back Democrat turned Republican turned Independent turned Democrat Michael Bloomberg for president. From Fox News: The TV courtroom personality, 77, wrote a piece for USA Today in which she endorsed former mayor of New York City Michael Bloomberg for president even though he’s not currently running for the position. She said, “I realize I am taking a personal and a career risk. I have carefully stayed away from politics for 50 years, except to vote. But times have changed in our country, and I believe the moment has come for me to step out from behind the curtain. I want to speak honestly and from the heart — regardless of the consequences.” She added, “Our American family has been fractured in recent years. We’re hopelessly divided, and a bitterly divided family cannot thrive,” she said. “The only way we can begin to come together again, I said, is if Michael Bloomberg, former mayor of New York City, becomes our next president.”
