    Pennsylvania Gov. Josh Shapiro on Tuesday said that his office has made a criminal referral in response to the recent train derailment over the border in East Palestine, Ohio, and the aftereffects on the environment and nearby communities. Shapiro shared the information during a news conference in East Palestine with Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, EPA Administrator Michael Regan and other officials. A reporter had asked what actions the governors might take, such as penalizing Norfolk Southern, the rail company involved in the Feb. 3 derailment. "We've made a criminal referral to the acting attorney general in Pennsylvania to review and...
  • Buttigieg Complains of Too Many Whites in Construction

    Independent Sentinel ^ | February 13, 2023 | By M Dowling -
    At a conference this morning, Transportation Secretary Peter Buttigieg, aka Pothole Pete, failed to mention the 50-car train derailment in Ohio. It led to a controlled burn sending some poisonous gases into the air in East Palestine, Ohio, and in the direction of Pennsylvania and New York City. Some people complained of fish and livestock dying after the plumes permeated the air. Buttigieg did, however, say too many white people work construction. He’s still on the racist jobs, racist roads, racist everything. His solution is to hire people by race. He should really address this with the unions. Apparently, he...
  • Pete Buttigieg Says Biden Is TOO Successful for Americans to Appreciate(NOT the bee!)

    Transportation Secretary and Chasten’s wife — er, husband, Pete Buttigieg, went on NBC’s Meet the Press on Feb. 5 to preview Joe Biden’s State of the Union address. During that appearance, Buttigieg claimed that Joe Biden is just so wildly successful as president that his accomplishments cannot be easily distilled — hence Biden’s low approval ratings. Yes, Mayor Pete actually said Biden is extremely unpopular because he’s too good at his job. Buttigieg rambled out a justification of the Biden administration allowing an apparent Chinese spy balloon to cross the U.S. before shooting it down over the ocean (where, quite...

    Paying near record-high prices for gas may be hitting your wallet hard, but according to Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, that will just make an electric vehicle all the more worth it. During a House hearing on Tuesday, Buttigieg said, “The more pain we are all experiencing from the high price of gas, the more benefit there is for those who can access electric vehicles.” Watch the video below: VIDEO AT LINK....................... According to AAA, the national average price for a gallon of gas is $4.49, down from $4.98 a month ago. However, it is up from $3.17 a year ago....
  • Pete Buttigieg Begins $1 Billion Pilot Plan to Ensure ‘Racial Equity’ in Roads

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on Thursday will launch a $1 billion pilot plan to address what he sees as cities and neighborhoods racially segregated or divided by roads. Buttigieg has previously declared “there is racism physically built” into U.S. infrastructure, promising to address it soon after taking office. As Breitbart News reported, he argued that some highways and bridges across several cities were designed to divide communities by race. “Well if you’re in Washington, I’m told that the history of that highway is one that was built at the expense of communities of color in the D.C. area,” he said....

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said Friday on ABC’s “The View” that “he’s right” when asked if he agrees with his husband Chasten Buttigieg’s quote that the “Don’t Say Gay” law “will kill kids” while discussing Florida’s recently passed “Parental Rights in Education” law. Co-host Ana Navarro said, “The first thing I want to say is I am so sorry that you have become the butt of jokes by some really stupid, stupid people when it comes to your paternity.” She continued, “Talking about attacks on LGBTQ plus, Your husband Chasten is a teacher, and he’s been a vocal critic of...

    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...

    Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg said Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson’s criticism showed he did not understand “the concept of bottle-feeding.” Thursday night on his show, Carlson said, “Pete Buttigieg has been on leave from his job since August after adopting a child – paternity leave, they call it – trying to figure out how to breastfeed. No word on how that went.” Anchor Nicolle Wallace said, “I would say to Tucker Carlson, don’t knock it ’til you try it. What are these attacks about?” Buttigieg said, “Well, look, in his case, I guess he...

    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).

    “Racial justice” is a heavy emphasis of President Joe Biden’s “infrastructure” proposal, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg told The Breakfast Club on Monday. “It’s roads and bridges,” Buttigieg said in response to a question asking what is in the ten-year American Jobs Plan, adding it will fix 20,000 miles of roads, which equals less than 0.5 percent of American roads.

    Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg told reporters at the White House on Friday afternoon that Americans were using the “wrong” forms of transportation — a problem he said President Joe Biden’s $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan would fix. Buttigieg also claimed that some Americans have no access to transportation at all. He added that Americans would once again be “challenged” to expand their ideas about infrastructure, which he said went far beyond roads and bridges. He said: Americans are spending too much of their money on transportation in the wrong ways, or don’t have access to it at all. And the...

CNN reporter DJ Judd shared a video that appears to show a team of Secret Service agents unloading Buttigieg’s bike from the back of an SUV, then at least two SUVs following him as he mounts the bike and rides to the White House.

    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?

    Pete Buttigieg is dropping out of the 2020 presidential primary race, a senior campaign aide told CNBC. He is flying to South Bend, Indiana to make the announcement, where he served as mayor for two terms. The Indiana Democrat waged an unlikely campaign that saw a little-known mayor overpower governors and U.S. senators in the race for the party nomination. Along the way, Buttigieg assembled a substantial war chest and a vast national operation. A two-term mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Buttigieg was the first openly gay major presidential contender. He scored a narrow delegate edge over Sen. Bernie Sanders...

But watch this Time magazine video that shows him cutting his comments short and fleeing to his waiting limousine:
