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.

Nine of the 2020 Forbes Ten Wealthiest Americans Are Democrat-Affiliated Liberal Megadonors

Pure oligarchy, greed and corruption.

Forbes Magazine released its annual list of the 400 wealthiest people in the world this week, and nine of the top ten wealthiest Americans featured on the list appear to be staunch Democrats and liberal donors.

Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett, Larry Ellison, Steve Ballmer, Elon Musk, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and Alice Walton were named as the wealthiest American citizens, all possessing a personal net worth of over 60 billion dollars. Nearly all of them are closely affiliated with Democrat politics in various capacities, most commonly as lavish donors to Democrat campaigns and liberal political causes.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is the only exception, being a figure who appears unaffiliated with the political left, having donated considerably more money to Republicans than Democrats in the 2018 election cycle, although he donated to Hillary Clinton in 2016. Musk has vaguely affiliated himself with some conservatives, and opposed some of California’s coronavirus lockdown policies.

Bezos himself reportedly personally encouraged Mike Bloomberg to run for President, having feuded with President Trump personally at length over Amazon’s utilization of the Postal Service. He hasn’t donated to Biden, but his general affiliation with Democratic politics is indicated through his tacit Bloomberg endorsement.

Alice Walton, a Walmart heiress, comes from a traditionally Republican family, but is a Biden donor with an extensive history of supporting Democrats. The rest of the top 10 are reliable Democrat donors, donating to Republicans rarely, if at all. Mark Zuckerberg occasionally depicts himself as a political centrist independent of Silicon Valley neoliberal politics, but the Facebook platform engages in prolific censorship of conservatives, without applying the same tactics to the political left.

The wealthiest billionaire oligarchs are determined to use their political power to crush the life prospects of the everyday American and the traditional middle-class American way of life. The political right and real conservatives should oppose them at every turn, reinstating an economic vision that upholds small businesses over multinational corporations and entrepreneurship at a local, community level as an alternative to the domination of monopoly billionaires.
