  • Buttigieg: Travel Mask Mandate Appeal Is Mainly About ‘Clarity’ on CDC Powers

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg stated that “most of us understand the difference between a hotel ballroom” where the White House Correspondents’ Dinner will be held without a mask mandate and airplanes and that the main purpose behind the Biden administration’s appeal of the transportation mask mandate ruling is “making sure there’s clarity on the public health authority that the CDC has.”

    Tuesday on CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg was asked about the possibility of the White House putting a hold on the nationwide gas tax until gas prices come down in the United States. Buttigieg noted President Joe Biden was releasing oil from the reserves to help stabilize oil prices and suggested moving on from energy independence. He also argued that no “political figure” directly controls oil and gas prices.
  • Klaus Schwab’s puppet ‘Young Global Leaders’ revealed — Trudeau in Canada, Buttigieg in U.S., Macron in France, and many more

    As technocracy expert Patrick Wood says, it was no coincidence that 1992 was chosen as the year to start the Global Leaders of Tomorrow program. This was the same year that Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development were unleashed on the world. The new agenda for the world required a new kind of leader and Klaus Schwab’s program was key to the whole evil plan. That new kind of leader would offer exactly the kind of “leadership” we see in Ottawa, Paris, London and Washington. Leaders who basically hate their own people and do not care one bit what they think...
  • Pete Buttigieg speaks out... on climate - cars & trucks gotta go, time to walk or bike (only 9.26 years left)

    10/18/2021 3:42:39 PM PDT · by Libloather · 62 replies
    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has faced a flurry of criticism from Republicans for taking paid parental leave with his husband and two newborns. But Buttigieg wants to refocus the conversation on another topic entirely: climate change. “Inevitably, every transportation decision is a climate decision, whether we acknowledge it or not,” Buttigieg said in an interview with The Climate 202. “So I think that's absolutely part of our mandate and part of our set of responsibilities as a department.” **SNIP** Cars and trucks account for the bulk of the sector's pollution, according to data from the Environmental Protection Agency. And in...

    Over the last six months, companies globally have sounded the alarm about a growing supply chain threat: the incredible backup at US ports, in particular at ports in California. What started as a concern has spiraled into a full blown transportation emergency – one that threatens to spike already rising inflation and lead to scarcity of essential items here in the US. The current supply chain crisis falls squarely within the purview of the Secretary of Transportation – given that it involves ports, rail, and trucking (ie the basic components of the Secretary of Transportation’s policy portfolio).

  • Biden and Buttigieg Overstate Jobs Impact from Infrastructure Bill (maybe 100k jobs by 2031)

    Factcheck.org via MSN ^ | 8/12/21 | Robert Farley
    President Joe Biden and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg overstated the impact of the bipartisan, Senate-approved infrastructure bill on job creation, likely citing instead an economic forecast that includes the much larger and partisan “human infrastructure” bill. An economic analysis by Moody’s Analytics found the bipartisan bill “supports only a modestly stronger economy.” The infrastructure bill alone would, at its peak in the middle of the decade, temporarily increase the number of jobs in the U.S. by 650,000, the analysis said. But it would take a few years for those jobs to emerge, and by 2031, after most of the infrastructure...

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Beat” that the latest $928 billion infrastructure offer from a group of Senate Republicans was “a good sign” in the negotiations on President Joe Biden’s $1.7 trillion plan. Buttigieg said, “We met the urgency of confronting COVID with the rescue plan. Now, we got to meet the urgency of preparing the American economy to succeed for the next many decades with the American Jobs Plan and generational investment in the infrastructure we count on from the tradition of stuff like roads and bridges to newer things like the internet, access for...

    WND ^ | January 23, 2021
    Incoming Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has suggested taxing Americans for the number of miles they drive, a policy he endorsed as a Democratic presidential candidate. The Biden Administration is actively searching for ways to fund its ambitious $1 trillion infrastructure plan. Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., acknowledged "privacy concerns" related to implementing a vehicle miles traveled (VMT) system but said it should be considered as a potential replacement for the gas tax.

    NY Post ^ | Dec. 16, 2020
    President-elect Joe Biden on Wednesday mangled his rollout of Pete Buttigieg as the “first” gay Cabinet nominee — using a female name for Buttigieg’s husband and omitting mention of President Trump having named the first gay Cabinet-level member. Biden noted his fondness for Buttigieg’s husband “Kirsten” during a speech in Wilmington, Del., as he formally named the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor as his nominee for transportation secretary. Biden also snubbed Ric Grenell, who Trump celebrated this year as the first gay Cabinet member when he worked three months as acting Director of National Intelligence.

    Former South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg said on Fox News Wednesday that President Donald Trump has a “dim view” of the intelligence of his own supporters.” Anchor Martha MacCallum said, “Do the American people sort of need to see that the former vice president can handle the very tough demanding schedule of what it takes to be the president of the United States?” Buttigieg said, “You know, the best way to see who can handle that demanding schedule is to see who can handle it on the campaign trail. I’m in my 30s. The presidential trail beat me up....

    President Trump must think the American people are suckers if he expects them to believe he didn’t insult fallen soldiers during his 2018 trip to France, former Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg told “The Story” Friday. “I mean, look, the president today lied on Twitter about never calling John McCain a loser,” Buttigieg, a veteran of the U.S. Navy Reserve who served in Afghanistan, told host Jon Scott. “Now, he’s asking us to believe that, OK, he’s lying about that today, because we can check and see the footage, but he’s not lying about the other stuff? He must think...

While Buttigieg landed familiar attacks on Bernie Sanders and Michael Bloomberg, it was a question asked by a 9-year-old Lone Tree boy that stole the show. Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold read the question of 9 year old Zachary Ro: “Would you help me tell the world I am gay too?” “It won’t always be easy but...

    “Do you think it is possible to be a Christian and support President Trump?” Burnett asked. “Well, I’m not going to tell other Christians how to be Christians,” Buttigieg replied. “But I will say, I cannot find any compatibility between the way this president conducts himself and anything I find in Scripture. Now I guess that’s my interpretation, but I think that’s a lot of people’s interpretation, and that interpretation deserves a voice.” Everyone Sins — Except Buttigieg ApparentlyButtigieg believes everyone else’s sin is up for discussion — except his own. He cites Trump’s behavior, but what of Pete’s? Scripture...

    Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg slammed President Donald Trump and Rush Limbaugh at a CNN town hall Tuesday night. Last week, Limbaugh came under fire for making homophobic comments about Buttigieg and his marriage, something he has said he won’t apologize for, according to Limbaugh, because Trump told him not to. But between Limbaugh’s comments and Trump telling the conservative radio host not to apologize, Trump said he’d vote for a gay presidential candidate, and Buttigieg isn’t buying the contradictory stories. Asked if he’d take Trump at his word about voting for a gay candidate, Buttigieg responded, “Well, not if...

    “LGBTQ+ people aren’t just bystanders in American history—they are drivers of it,” says this page on Buttigieg’s site. “Decades ago, there was no place where someone could worship as an openly LGBTQ+ person. Today, majorities of every major religious group support LGBTQ+-inclusive nondiscrimination laws,” says the webpage.
