THIS MAN IS INSULTING YOUR INTELLIGENCE

This man is insulting your intelligence

There are times when Christians especially need to use their brains. Now is one of those times, because Pete Buttigieg is insulting your intelligence.

He wants you to be tolerant. He wants you to be accepting. He wants you to overlook, dismiss and deny what is plainly set before you. He doesn’t want you to believe your eyes. He is the embodiment of ‘what you see is what you will not get.’

Here are three ways he is treating you as if you are stupid.

  1. He believes you are too stupid to remember the disaster of electing someone who has never accomplished a thing. In other words, he wants you to forget Barack Obama. Obama is why we should not vote for Buttigieg. We already tried this. We’ve already had a President with no proven leadership skills.

We’ve already had the mouthful of high sounding platitudes with nothing to back them up. We’ve already tried the ‘Hopey, Changey’ lie. Remember how Obama promised to restore the oceans and heal the earth?

We fell for the warm and fuzzy feeling. We’ve already tried the new that made us look hip and open minded. We’ve already suffered through the messianic community organizer—why would we endure the robot mayor of Westworld?

Mayor Pete is more algorithm than human. He is the carefully worded non-statement, non-position— except for the go-to, catch-all statement of every candidate on the Left: “I am running to defeat Trump.”

We have no idea what he believes. His only conviction, is to have no convictions.

  1. He thinks you are too stupid to see he is a walking contradiction. He claims to be a Christian, and yet condones two things that the Bible deems abhorrent. I will confront one of them: He has a radical view of abortion. He believes a fetus is not a human being, until it breathes. He believes he can prove this from the Bible. Think of it… a child can be murdered, until it takes its first breath!

Here are five passages from the Bible that describe babies in their mother’s womb:

“Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, and the One who formed you from the womb, ‘I, the LORD, am the maker of all things, stretching out the heavens by Myself, and spreading out the earth all alone . . .’” (Isaiah 44:24).

David wrote: “You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works and that, my soul knows well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret and skillfully wrought in the dark of the womb. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed, and in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them” (Psalm 139:13-16).

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations” (Jeremiah 1:5).

But when He who had set me apart before I was born, and had called me through His grace . . .” (Galatians 1:15).

“Behold, children are a gift of the LORD; they are a reward from Him” (Psalm 127:3).

  1. He thinks you are too stupid to see that he is not a moderate—when he is, in fact, a radical. Pete Buttigieg is trying to be the cure for Bernie Sanders. He is telling us that he is the moderate Democrat who will appeal to the center. This is a total lie.

As Mike Huckabee observed, “Buttigieg is even more radical when it comes to criminal justice reform, pledging to “ensure more people are free, by significantly reducing the number of people incarcerated in the United States at both the federal and state level by 50%.”

Huckabee went on, “Between jails and prisons, that would mean about 1.1 million convicted criminals released into American communities. They wouldn’t all be “non-violent drug offenders,” either – though Buttigieg is saying that as President he would decriminalize possession of all drugs, including meth and heroin.” https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/mike-huckabee-pete-buttigieg-is-no-moderate-all-dem-presidential-candidates-embrace-radical-policies

HE WOULD MAKE HEROIN LEGAL.

What else is Buttigieg hiding? Mayor Pete not only embraces unfettered illegal immigration, but actually wants to encourage more of it.

He wants amnesty for all 11 million illegal immigrants. He wants you to pay for their healthcare. He is for decriminalizing illegal immigration altogether.

Buttigieg even wants to create a new “community renewal visa” to funnel cheap foreign labor right into the areas where American citizens are struggling most for jobs and higher wages.

Pete is trying to con you. He thinks you’re too dumb to see it. But he is wrong…

Mike Huckabee ends talk show, weighs presidential run

Updated 1/3/15 8:39 PM EST

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee announced Saturday night that he would be ending his Fox News talk show to gauge support for a possible presidential campaign.

“There has been a great deal of speculation as to whether I would run for President,” Huckabee told his followers on Facebook. “I won’t make a decision about running until late in the spring of 2015, but the continued chatter has put Fox News into a position that is not fair to them.”

“I feel compelled to ascertain if the support exists strongly enough for another Presidential run. So as we say in television, stay tuned!” he added.

Huckabee, who ran for the Republican nomination in 2008 and hosted his show for more than six and a half years, had drawn renewed attention by criticizing former secretary of state Hillary Clinton last month after she said “smart power” also means empathizing and showing respect for enemies.

“How can we empathize with terrorists who think nothing of beheading innocent men, women and children?” Huckabee asked in a blog post on his website last month.

The 2016 race is already well underway online.

Even before Huckabee had made his announcement, Rand Paul’s PAC was firing away on the digital front. Just as the Kentucky Republican’s political arm had done when Jeb Bush signaled last month he was weighing a White House campaign, Paul’s team bought prime real estate for any Google searches using the terms “Huckabee record”, “Huckabee announcement”, “Huckabee taxes” and “Huckabee common core.”

“Less Taxes Not More,” read one ad for RandPAC. “We need leaders who will cut taxes not raise them. Join us.”

RandPAC also targeted users tweeting about Huckabee or his announcement with ads.

Huckabee’s leadership PAC, Huck PAC, took in $2.2 million in the 2014 cycle, spending approximately $2 million, with about $500,000 on hand. Huckabee’s daughter, Sarah Huckabee, also runs a super PAC called American Principles Fund. In the 2014 cycle, it raised $1.4 million, spent $1.3 million and had $60,000 on hand.

Huckabee came in a distant second to John McCain in the 2008 Republican primaries. The former pastor turned Arkansas governor started strong, winning the Iowa GOP caucus by 9 percentage points over Mitt Romney.

Three-in-five Iowa caucusgoers in 2008 were evangelical or born-again Christians, but, a week later in New Hampshire, fewer than 25 percent of GOP primary voters were evangelicals. Huckabee finished third in the Granite State, with only 11 percent of the vote.

He then captured his home state of Arkansas, along with Alabama, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Tennessee and West Virginia. Despite these victories, McCain secured the necessary number of delegates by early March with a clean sweep of contests in Ohio, Rhode Island, Texas and Vermont.

Even though Huckabee faded quickly in 2008, his win in the Iowa caucuses left a big mark on the electorate that votes in that contest, which is a more conservative and more evangelical group than even other segments of the GOP primary electorate elsewhere.

But his slow strip toward ultimately saying he wouldn’t run in 2012 has left many skeptical of his intentions for 2016. The former Arkansas governor appears to have profited financially from being in the national spotlight — raking in money from paid speeches, for instance, and making expansive use of chartered planes — and many believe he’s unlikely to leave aside a life of relative comfort for a long-shot campaign.

Sources say Huckabee still has paid speeches scheduled in the coming weeks. Huckabee also has a book coming out later this month, titled “God, Guns, Grits and Gravy,” and speculation about a presidential run could add to the hype as he promotes the book.

Any number of politicians have been paid contributors to Fox News, but the cable channel’s policy requires it to sever those ties if that person takes certain steps toward running for office. At times, it has ended the agreements even before the would-be candidate makes a final decision on whether to run.

Huckabee wrote on his Facebook page earlier that the announcement Saturday night would “make news for sure.”

It’s not the first time he has made an important decision public on his show, which debuted in September 2008. In May 2011, Huckabee teased a similar announcement ahead of the 2012 presidential election.

“All the factors say go, but my heart says no,” he told viewers.
