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.
And it has to do with his father…
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.Advertisement - story continues below
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:
How will Trump perform against the Democrat nominee come 2020? He will win.
Trump versus Joe Biden? Win.
Trump versus Bernie Sanders? Win.
Trump versus Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Tulsi Gabbard, Joaquin Castro, Cory Booker, Jay Inslee. etc.?
Win, win, win, win, win.
This comes from financial experts, who say there’s no chance Trump loses to the liberal standard-bearer – whomever that winds up being.
Why? Simple, really.
It’s the economy, stupid.
From Daily Wire:
According to some financial experts, President Trump should easily win the 2020 election because of one factor: the strength of the economy.
The experts quoted by Politico said that if history is a reliable guide, the fact that the economy has flourished during Trump’s tenure should be the overriding element in voter’s decision as to whom to vote for in 2020. The economy is sailing along on rising wages and low gas prices, as well as low unemployment. Donald Luskin, chief investment officer of TrendMacrolytics, which predicted Trump’s 2016 victory, opined, “The economy is just so damn strong right now and by all historic precedent the incumbent should run away with it.” He was sanguine about any problems with the economy that might arise between now and November 2020, adding, “It would have to slow a lot to still be not pretty good.”
