    Transportation secretary Pete Buttigieg's top political donors received millions of dollars in city contracts after giving thousands to his campaigns while he was mayor of South Bend, Indiana. Buttigieg's political action committees took money from 23 companies who then got jobs from South Bend's Board of Public Works on which he was seated, documents obtained by reveal. On two occasions, the former presidential candidate received donations the same day the companies were awarded contracts. Other city contractors gifted the mayor cigars, alcohol and golf trips worth hundreds of dollars. The companies, their executives and spouses donated a total $253,750...

    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. Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding announced the switch last week outside of a business in Evansville while in the presence of Indiana Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, a Republican. 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...

    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...

    MANCHESTER, NH – Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg came under attack at Friday night’s Democratic presidential nomination debate by two of his top-tier rivals over his acceptance of campaign donations from billionaires and his reliance on super PACs to help support his White House bid. Sen. Elizabeth Warren – who’s contributions have almost entirely come from small dollar grassroots donors – slammed the former South Bend, Indiana mayor without naming him. “I don’t think anyone should be able to buy their way into a nomination or to be president of the United States, she emphasized, before adding that, “I don’t...

    Vice-Presidential candidate Kamala Harris has apparently unfollowed Joe Biden on Twitter. Kamala Harris is thought to be one of the frontrunners in the race to become Joe Biden's Vice-Presidential candidate. The unfollowing of Biden might be considered a sign that he is leaning in another direction.

    A host of celebrities are already backing her possible candidacy. "I want her to run for president," Meryl Streep said after Winfrey's speech. Rev. Jesse Jackson wrote Oprah "is eminently qualified to be President. She is a patriot, she has integrity ... she can raise our moral standing in the world." Her possible candidacy also received support from MSNBC's Joy Ann Reid, comedian Larry Wilmore, actor John Stamos, and singer/actress Janelle Monae. But even as Oprah is often portrayed as an unblemished American success story, she would bring to any political campaign significant baggage. Specifically, here are 12 skeletons in...
  • Shoving ‘Transgender Regret’ Back in the Closet: LGBTQ Advocates are attacking “transgender” people who want to return to their birth sex

    It is a startling reaction, but LGBTQ advocates are continuing their campaign to ostracize “transgender” people who want to return to their birth sex. Charlie Evans fits the profile of a “former transgender” who felt shunned by LGBTQ members and was labeled a “traitor.” She naively set out to help teenagers from making the same “horrendous mistakes” she had made when starting to transition at age 17. She began living as a boy, binding her chest and shaving her head. The floodgates to this bizarre phenomenon opened in the aftermath of Evans appearing on a popular cable program, Sky News,...
