Pete Buttigieg Suggests Quid Pro Quo with Israeli Military Aid to Promote Palestinian Interests

Isn’t this what the Democrats are trying to impeach President Trump over?

South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg made a remark last month that received little attention from the mainstream media when he suggested that foreign military aid to Israel should be used as a bargaining chip to impact public policy in the pro-Jewish state.

The openly gay Democratic presidential contender told an audience at the University of Chicago that he would hold foreign aid over the heads of the Israelis in order to coerce them into refusing to annex settlements on the West Bank.

“I think that the aid is leverage to guide Israel in the right direction,” Buttigieg said. “If, for example, there is follow-through on these threats of annexation, I’m committed to ensuring that the US is not footing the bill for that.”

“It is in the American interest, as well as the Palestinian and ultimately the Israeli Jewish interest, that Israel not reach the point where there will have to be a choice between either being a Jewish state or a democracy,” he added, “and there is a trajectory toward that going on right now.”

Buttigieg also suggested that aid to Israel could be reduced as well while making his pro-Palestinian statement.

“I’m not going to commit now to all of the ways that that leverage can and should be used, but I will say that our policy goal will be to do what we do when a friend is moving in a way that you’re worried about, which is to put your arm around them and guide them somewhere better,” he said.

According to the logic of the Democratic Party in the age of Trump, Buttigieg is suggesting for an illicit quid pro quo to be used against Israel. By their standards, he is advocating for an impeachable and illegal offense within his hypothetical administration.

Of course, consistency is not exactly a strong suit of the Democrats. They completely ignore that former Vice President Joe Biden admitted abusing his power to stop a corruption probe in the Ukraine involving his son, Hunter.

While the Democrats remain gung ho regarding their ongoing impeachment inquiry against the President, it may completely backfire against them as Republicans get ready to question witnesses of their own:

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) issued a letter to House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) on Thursday demanding that the minority party be allowed to call witnesses to testify during the impeachment proceedings.

Nunes cited House Rule XI, Clause 1(a)(1)(A) and House Rule XI, Clause 2(j)(1) in order to make the case that it is germane for Republicans to bring forth witnesses for questioning at an upcoming hearing.

“As the Committee continues to conduct the Democrats’ partisan and one-sided “impeachment inquiry,” there are still important perspectives and serious issues that you have prevented the Committee from examining,” Nunes explained in the letter.

“We will inform you of the witnesses we intend to call once you have provided a hearing date and time to which we agree. Your failure to schedule this hearing shall constitute evidence of your denial of fundamental fairness and due process,” he added.

Buttigieg’s rhetoric shows that the Democrats cannot even keep their own story straight about what is permissible from the President. It is not looking good for them in next year’s election.

Iowa Certifies Republican Congressional Candidate as Winner by SIX VOTES

The closest congressional election in decades.

Published

on

The Iowa State Board of Canvass voted on Monday to certify a Republican congressional candidate as the winner of an election for the state’s 2nd district, with a recount leaving Mariannette Miller-Meeks up on Democrat Rita Hart by a mere six votes.

The final standing result for the election of Iowa’s 2nd congressional district leaves Miller-Meeks with 196,964 votes, and Hart with 196,568 votes. Miller-Meeks’ margin of victory had stood at 47 votes before a mandatory recount, dwindling to a final lead of a half dozen. The election is slated to become the closes congressional race in the United States since 1984, and the closest in Iowa since 1916.

Hart is expected to legally challenge the vote after Monday’s certification. A GOP victory in the Democrat-leaning swing district would be the 14th Republican pickup this year, significantly eroding the Democrat majority in the House of Representatives.

While the race is extraordinarily close, I am proud to have won this contest and look forward to being certified as the winner,” said Miller-Meeks, an Iowa State Senator representing Ottumwa on Saturday when declaring victory. “It is the honor of a lifetime to be elected to serve the people of eastern and southern Iowa. Iowans are tenacious, optimistic and hardworking, and I will take those same attributes to Washington, D.C., on their behalf.

The recount process had proven dramatic, with results of Miller-Meeks’ outstanding lead placed in jeopardy when a recount board identified and counted dozens of absentee ballots that weren’t previously accounted for. It’s likely Hart will litigate in hopes of getting county clerks to count additional ballots that had been ruled unlawful.

As the nation demands answers to allegations of pervasive election misconduct and voter fraud, it’s worth noting that only a handful of ballots can overturn the end result of many local, county, and state elections. Let no illegal ballot infiltrate the final count, and let no legal vote go uncounted.
