PLEASE CLAP 2.0: Pete Buttigieg Asks Silent Iowa Crowd to Applaud

The scene resembled Jeb Bush’s infamous 2016 campaign flop.



Pete Buttigieg appeared to be taking a page from Jeb Bush’s 2016 Presidential campaign on Tuesday, resorting to asking members of a silent Iowa crowd to “come on” when they declined to respond to his campaign talking points with enthusiasm.

Video of the cringeworthy interaction is sure to elicit comparison to Bush’s “please clap” moment.

It’s unclear if Mayor Pete’s seemingly disinterested audience realized they were intended to applaud at the moment Buttigieg finished rattling off his prepackaged set of vague inspirational talking points. After being spurred by Buttigieg, they did meet the cue, however.

Buttigieg has stalled in recent weeks, as the once golden boy has drawn criticism for his comfortable relationships with billionaire oligarchs and the political elite. In particular, Buttigieg has been blasted for hosting a tasteless fundraiser in a billionaire-owned California “wine cave.

Mayor Pete does still poll strongly in Iowa, and his weakness with Black voters makes it imperative that he finish with a first or second place finish in the February caucuses. Buttigieg has also lost some support to Mike Bloomberg, making it clear that at least some of his core constituency in the primary are susceptible to being bought off by a deluge of propaganda unmatched in modern American political history.

Judging from the lukewarm response of Iowa voters to his focus-group tested schpiel, reciting scripted talking points in an attempt to become the next Obama won’t quite cut it.

His campaign may go down in history as a more impressive showing than that of Jeb Bush’s flop, but his request for campaign speech applause may suggest that his message isn’t all that different.

FRAUD: California Rejects 100,000 Mail-In Ballots for Primary Election Due to Abnormalities

This is what Democrats want on a national basis.



Over 100,000 mail-in ballots submitted by California voters during a March presidential primary were rejected due to abnormalities, in a taste of what is to come if widespread mail-in voting is used during November’s presidential election.

“The only thing worse than people not voting is people attempting to vote and having their ballot uncounted,” said Kim Alexander, who serves as president of the California Voter Foundation, also noting that these canceled votes “can make a difference in a close contest.”

California claims that 70,330 ballots were rejected because they were not properly postmarked on or before Election Day and received before three days following the election. An additional 27,525 ballots were rejected because they lacked a proper signature. The rejected ballots would be enough to swing an election during a general election, particularly the state and local races.

This news bolsters President Trump’s assertion that mail-in voting is rife for fraud, which has been denied by Democrats and their fake news backers.

Attorney General Bill Barr has echoed President Trump’s concerns regarding mail-in voting and the potential for widespread election fraud.

“The thing we have going for us, especially when there’s intense division in the country, is that we have peaceful transfers of power and a way of resolving it is to have an election,” Barr said in a Fox News interview.

“But when state governments start adopting these practices like mail-in ballots, that open the floodgates of potential fraud, then people’s confidence in the outcome of the election is going to be undermined,” he added.

Big League Politics has reported on other recent instances of fraud that have stemmed from mail-in voting schemes pushed by Democrats:

Four men, two of whom are Democratic city council members, have been charged with running a voter fraud operation in the town of Paterson, New Jersey.

New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal announced charges of mail-in voting fraud, election fraud, and illegal possession of mail-in ballots against Michael Jackson, Alex Mendez, Shelim Khalique, and Abu Rayzen.

Jackson is an active city councilman, while Mendez is a councilman-elect. Khalique is the brother of another Paterson city councilman, and Rayzen is a campaign operative for Khalique’s brother, Shahin Khalique.

The charges allege that Jackson took it upon himself to pick up completed mail-in ballots from voters in the city and delivered them to the Passaic County Board of Elections. Jackson failed to disclose to the board of elections that he delivered ballots for that he’s a city council member, and in one case, a ballot that he picked up that was unsealed was delivered to the election authorities sealed and completed.

Mendez is also accused of the same form of dishonest ballot harvesting, declining to reveal that he was a candidate for office when dropping off mail-in ballots. He’s also charged with falsifying and tampering with records.

President Trump is being proven correct regarding his skepticism of mail-in voting. Democrats are pushing for it because it expands their ability to manipulate the results, as they grow more desperate to take back the country.
