    VIDEOIf you want to know why the horribly incompetent Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is such a massive failure at his job, you need only look at his record as Mayor of South Bend, Indiana when he earned the title of "Pothole Pete."

    SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The St. Joseph County GOP launched a devastating commercial about a potential criminal investigation into the St. Joseph County Clerk’s handling of absentee ballots. The ad, which aired during the Notre Dame V. BYU football game on Saturday, comes after several REAL News Michiana investigations uncovered potential illegal activity regarding the Democrat Clerk and her office and subsequent inquiries by the Indiana State Police. “No one wanted to believe it was true. No one thought it could happen. But it appears, it did.” A voice says during the ad before showing security footage of Democrat Clerk,...

    "Protesters are upset because a right, an important right that the majority of Americans support, was taken away." Kavanaugh was dining at a restaurant in downtown D.C. last Wednesday when he made a backdoor exit after a group of abortion rights protesters was tipped off while the justice was eating and showed up out front. “Honorable Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh and all of our other patrons at the restaurant were unduly harassed by unruly protestors while eating dinner at our Morton’s restaurant," a Morton's representative said in a statement obtained by Politico. "Politics, regardless of your side or views, should...

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is on a mission. He’s looking for highways with a racist past and is aiming to “help reconnect cities and neighborhoods racially segregated or divided by road projects.” Buttigieg is examining interstate highways, built with federal dollars, “where a piece of infrastructure cuts off a neighborhood or a community because of how it was built,” said Buttigieg in a speech announcing the $1 billion “Reconnecting Communities” program. “How it was built”? What does that mean? Does that statement refer to the racial makeup of businesses and residents? This is just more of the “disparate racial results”...

    It would only require one or two results this weekend – none of them farfetched – for Notre Dame to reach the College Football Playoff for the third time in four seasons, including each of the past two. Maybe Georgia blows out Alabama. Maybe Baylor or Iowa beat Oklahoma State or Michigan. Maybe Cincinnati stumbles. That’s it. That’s all it would take. If it happens, Notre Dame will compete once again in the playoff … only this time without its head coach. It is the latest example of a sport gone mad – with money, with realignment, with championship aspirations,...

    Biden's Secretary of Transportation — former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg — is under fire this week for his absence during an escalating supply chain crisis that threatens to leave American stores filled with little more than empty shelves ahead of the busy holiday shopping season. As Katie explained earlier on the supply chain problems, "the situation has reached crisis levels as 250,000 shipping containers remain offshore" waiting to be offloaded at the twin ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach while "Americans across the country are experiencing shortages" that are expected to become more widespread. "It turns out,"...

    With the Biden administration a lost cause and Indiana passing only limited vaccine protection measures, St. Joseph County citizens were wise to take matters into their own hands.On April 4, the commissioners of St. Joseph County, Indiana passed a resolution against vaccine passports, saying they would “unduly and unnecessarily restrict the freedom of Americans; harm patient privacy; and have a negative financial impact of individuals of color and other marginalized communities.” It is a bold move for a community, and taking ownership of an issue where you live is smart. That’s why I’ve worked to help this resolution pass in...

    Former President Barack Obama reportedly said the former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg couldn’t win the presidency because “he’s gay” and “short,” according to a new book on the 2020 presidential election. Obama expressed confidence in former presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren during an October 2019 meeting with elite black donors in New York City, The Hill’s Amie Parnes and NBC’s Jonathan Allen described in the new book “Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency.” During the same meeting, the former president also joked about Buttigieg, citing his age, sexuality, and height, as reasons why he could not win the...

    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.

    In sharp contrast to Joe Biden’s calls for American to “come together as a nation and heal,” some Democratic Party activists are promoting the compilation of a blacklist of people who worked for, funded, campaigned for, were appointed by, or endorsed President Trump. The beginnings of a collaborative spreadsheet being produced for the so-called “Trump Accountability Project” shows the targets to include: campaign staff, administration members, judicial appointees, donors, legal counsel, and endorsers. Among those who have tweeted to promote the initiative in recent days are Hari Sevugan, former Obama presidential campaign spokesman, DNC press secretary, and deputy campaign manager...

    Persistent use of methamphetamine is the single biggest risk factor for HIV seroconversion among gay and bisexual men, according to a new study published in the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes. Using subjects from across the U.S., including Puerto Rico and Guam, researchers found that over 12 months of follow-up, 14% of study participants reported using meth, and 2.5% tested positive for HIV (115 new infections). More than a third of study participants (36%) seroconverting for HIV were persistent users of methamphetamine.

    BLM activist from Indiana admits to posing as black person, vows to ‘seek help’ Another “black” activist has admitted to being a white person. Satchuel Cole, a community organizer for Black Lives Matter in Indiana, fessed up to the years-long ruse in a Facebook post last week — and vowed to “seek help.” “Friends, I need to take accountability for my actions and the harm that I have done. My deception and lies have hurt those I care most about. I have taken up space as a Black person while knowing I am white. I have used Blackness when it...

    Remember Rachel Dolezal? The famously white NAACP leader from the Spokane area who got around by pretending to be Black, has company. Turns out a Black Lives Matter activist leader from Indianapolis has somehow been caught out and now also admits to being white while pretending to be Black. Satchuel Cole (original name: Jennifer Benton -ed.) has been highly a visible racial justice activist in Indianapolis, has worked with the local Black Lives Matter chapter and was even the spokesperson for the family of Aaron Bailey who was killed by police during a June 2017 traffic stop, according to The...

    A Democratic sheriff in Indiana has publicly abandoned his party just two months ahead of the November election, and he cited his faith and attacks from members of his former party on law enforcement and the American flag on the way out.

The Evansville Courier & Press reported Wedding was elected sheriff as a Democrat in 2014 and again in 2018. By switching parties publicly, he wanted to make a statement against...

He must think...
