New Photos of Lavish Billionaire-Hosted Buttigieg Fundraiser Exposed

Buttigieg definitely isn’t wining and dining with working-class Americans.

New photos of a lavish and luxurious fundraiser held for the Pete Buttigieg campaign by its billionaire donors has surfaced.

Billionaires Craig and Kathryn Hall hosted an event for the South Bend, Indiana mayor at the Hall Rutherford wine caves in California’s Napa Valley. If you at all doubted it, the setting is just as fancy and elitist as it sounds.

The wine cave apparently features a chandelier with 1,500 Swarovski crystals, and $900 cabernet for sale.

The leaks from the fundraiser threaten to paint a picture of Buttigieg as a vanity candidate of the nation’s political elite, who often spare no expense in funding and propping up candidates to advance their interests in Washington.

Buttigieg has attracted criticism from other Democratic candidates for his continued reliance on big-money fundraisers, usually hosted by billionaire donors. The mainstream media-beloved candidate was finally compelled to release a list of his major donors earlier this week after facing calls to do so from Democratic voters.

The Bernie Sanders campaign in particular took offense at Buttigieg’s grotesque elite fundraiser, sending out an email blast in which the socialist candidate stated he’d never be caught holding a similar event at a southern California ‘wine cave.’

In a political environment in which elite big-money political connections are increasingly frowned on from across the political spectrum, Mayor Pete may find it difficult to overcome perceptions that he’s nothing more than a corporate Democrat puppet. However, in the unlikely event that he wins the primary, the ‘smart’ neoliberal Democrat would face an uphill battle against President Trump, known for his appeal to working class voters that outpaces most Republicans.

The latest round of polling revealed Mayor Pete is in fact the weakest possible candidate against President Trump, despite the mainstream media’s fascination with the elite Democrat.

CAUGHT IN A LIE: Lincoln Project Neocons Knew of John Weaver’s Grooming, Still Sought to Establish Media Organization With Him

Higher-ups knew of allegations against Weaver, and still wanted to turn the Lincoln Project into a media organization.

A new report has claimed that Lincoln Project leadership thought of turning their super PAC into a media organization and bringing John Weaver on board, even though they knew about grooming allegations against him.

The New York Times published the report Monday afternoon, which was titled “Inside the Lincoln Project’s Secrets, Side Deals and Scandals.”

Co-founder Steve Schmidt held a meeting at his Utah home a few days before the 2020 election to discuss transforming the Lincoln Project into a massive media organization. He said to the group that “five years from now, there will be a dozen billion-dollar media companies that don’t exist today. I would like to build one, and would invite all of you to be part of that.”

According to the New York Times, Schmidt had already filed papers to create TLP Media back in September and October 2020 with Reed Galen, Rick Wilson, and John Weaver. The report said that “its aim was to transform the original project, a super PAC, into a far more lucrative venture under their control.”

But it has been established that Schmidt and other leaders knew about the allegations against Weaver as early as March 2020, despite previously claiming they didn’t. They appear to have been so focused on grifting and lining their own pockets that Weaver’s behavior didn’t really matter to them. It wasn’t until multiple accusers came forward in January that Schmidt, Wilson, and others disavowed and cut ties with Weaver.

Former staffers like George Conway have called for the disbanding of the Lincoln Project altogether, though the Times states that Steve Schmidt’s faction “intends to continue it as a modern media campaign against global forces of authoritarianism, while also monetizing the movement.”
