Pete Buttigieg Slams Capitalism

Published

on

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg does not have faith in capitalism.

On Tuesday, April 16, 2019 the Hill reports that Buttigieg believes socialism is growing in popularity because “capitalism has let a lot of people down.”

Buttigieg declared on CNN’s “New Day” that “I think the reason we’re having this argument over socialism and capitalism is that capitalism has let a lot of people down.”

Instead he believes in “democratic capitalism” and emphasized that “democracy is more important than capitalism.”

The South Bend, Indiana mayor said, “At the end of the day, we prioritize democracy” and he stressed the importance of “having that framework of a rule of law, of fairness, is actually what it takes for markets to work.”

Buttigieg informed CNN that he is receptive to Senator Elizabeth Warren’s proposal to tax large companies.

The mayor said, “I think the more interesting issue is, should our policies be any different toward the biggest companies than they are toward the smallest ones?”
On the question of breaking up large corporations, Buttigieg said “sometimes, if there’s anti-competitive behavior.”
He continued, “It’s not just about saying, ‘If you’re this big, we’re going to break you.’ It’s also, perhaps, the bigger you are, the more responsibility you have.”
Although not as outspokenly socialist as Bernie Sanders, Buttigieg is another demonstration of how far Left the Democratic Party is going.
It’s rather curious that candidates like Buttigieg scoff at capitalism while failing to recognize the socialist aspects of the American economy such as central banking and income taxation. On top of a massive bureaucracy, these factors have contributed to the U.S.’s malaise over the past few decades. For those reasons, among others, Donald Trump was elected to scale back regulation.
As the Democratic Party continues to accept more of the radical Left, we can expect more anti-capitalist screeds from current and future presidential candidates.

Houston Police Allow Abortion Clinic to Operate Despite Texas Courts Ruling Them Non-Essential

Published

on

On March 30th, a judge ruled that Texas abortion clinics could stay open. This ruling came a few days after the Texas governor, Greg Abbott, deemed abortion servies non-essential.

Since abortions are clearly elective surgeries, the ruling was overturned by a vote of 2-1 in the 5th circuit court of appeals on March 31st. Meaning, the governor’s order stands and abortion clinics must close until non-essential businesses are allowed to open back up.

This hasn’t stopped one abortion clinic in Houston from continuing to kill the unborn.

In a video released on April 1st, via the YouTube channel ‘ProofThatGodExists,’ an abortion clinic in Houston is shown to still be accepting clients.

A couple of pro-life activists are shown in the video standing outside the abortion clinic. Across the street is a police officer, with whom one of the activists eventually talks.

They tell the offiicer that the abortion offices are still seeing clients. The officer acknowledges their concerns and says, “we’ll take care of it.”

A few minutes later, the officer goes to talk to the pro-life activists. The officer informed the activists that he was just there to “keep the peace” and nothing else.

One of the activists again informed the officer of the situation, asking, “Do you know that it’s illegal for them to do abortions today?” The officer replied, “I’m not out here for that.”

The activist then reiterated that he was asking him not why he was there, but if he personally knew of the current order. He wanted to know if the officer was not enforcing because he didn’t know about the order or because his department was choosing to ignore it in this case.

The officer didn’t want to answer directly. So, he again said, “I’m not saying that what you’re saying is wrong…. But that’s not what I’m out here for. I’m out here to keep the peace….”

He then said, “Whoever you need to call to enforce what you’re asking me about…” He was interupted by the second activist, who challenged him, insisting, “When people are breaking the law, we call the police.”

The video continues on with many more women entering the clinic. Eventually the abortion doctor arrived to the clinic, as well.

It’s clear that the clinic is in direct violation of the order that declares abortion services non-essential. Why the Houston police aren’t enforcing the order as it pertains to this particular clinic is still unclear.
