Pete Buttigieg just got caught spreading this bald-faced lie

45

Politicians will do and say anything to back their radical agendas.

The more radical the idea, the more outlandish the statements.

And Pete Buttigieg just got caught spreading this bald-faced lie that could sink his campaign.

Coming off of his shocking performance in the Iowa Caucus, Pete Buttigieg is hitting all the media stops to increase his name recognition.

One of those recent stops was on the The View where he was called out for one outlandish lie.

Back last fall, Buttigieg claimed his support for abortion up until the moment of birth comes from the Bible.

Buttigieg claimed the Bible states that “life begins with breath.”

Co-host of The View, Meghan McCain, confronted Buttigieg about this past statement supporting infanticide.

Meghan McCain exclaimed, “I think the interpretation from pro-life people like me was that you meant a baby actually being born . . . I just wanted you to clarify, because I found that statement to be pretty radical.”

Buttigieg responded, “I’m just pointing to the fact that different people will interpret their own moral lights, and for that matter interpret Scripture, differently. But we live in a country where it is extremely important that no one person should have to be subject to some other person’s interpretation of their own religion.”

Agitated by his response, Meghan McCain pressed on.

Meghan asked, “So if a woman wanted to invoke infanticide after a baby is born, you’d be comfortable with that?”

Buttigieg claimed, “Does anybody seriously think that’s what these cases are about? If this is a late-term situation, then by definition it’s one where a woman was expecting to carry the pregnancy to term. Then she gets the most perhaps devastating news of her life. We’re talking about families that may have picked out a name, may be assembling a crib, and they learn something excruciating and are faced with this terrible choice . . .”

Buttigieg’s bald-face lie about late-term abortion caught the criticism of many pro-life leaders and organizations.

On Twitter, Pro-Life organization Susan B. Anthony List, cited research showing the main reasons for late term abortions aren’t fundamentally different from those who have abortions before 20 weeks. Some of the most commonly given reasons were, “1. Stressful circumstances of unprepared pregnancy 2. Single-motherhood 3. Financial pressure 4. Relationship discord.”


Pro-Life leader and President of the Students for Life, Kristan Hawkins tweeted, “I have ZERO tolerance for Christians who claim to a moral high ground and then can’t tell the truth about when life begins and when it should be protected in order to advance their own political career. Go home, Mayor Pete, and save the justice campaign for this #prolifegen.”

  2. How to Debate Liberals on Abortion:

    John Morrow, a pro-life Christian taking a stand against abortion on secular human rights grounds, converted me to the pro-life cause, when he was debating pro-choice liberals (dominating the discussion!) on USENET, from 1986 – 1988.

    Prior, I was under the impression that abortion was solely a “religious” issue, and we shouldn’t impose our “religious beliefs” upon others.

    The sad irony is many pro-lifers see animal rights not as social and moral progress for all mankind, but as someone else’s “religious belief” which they think doesn’t apply to them. A lot of people look at abortion that way, too, you know!

    1. John Morrow said he disagreed with the Republicans for failing to provide enough social support for children once they’re born.

    In 1992, pro-life Democrat Robert Casey said he would strongly support Lynn Yeakel who was then running against pro-choice Republican Senator Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania.

    Yeakel favored abortion-rights, too, but, Casey said, “we agree on all the other issues.”

    Casey stated further that he would not leave the Democratic Party. The anti-abortion Republicans, he insisted, “drop the children at birth and do nothing for them after that.”

    Barney Frank similarly commented that for Republicans, “Life begins at conception and ends at birth.”

    2. John Morrow said his opposition to capital punishment led him to oppose abortion.

    3. John Morrow compared discrimination against the unborn to homophobia and xenophobia when debating pro-choice liberals.

    4. John Morrow said he supported sex education.

    5. John Morrow said he supported contraception.

    6. John Morrow said when Roe v. Wade came down, a different set of morals was in place: even mainstream secular American society would not accept single mothers, there were “shotgun weddings,” homes for unwed mothers, etc.

    When the Mary Tyler Moore show premiered in 1970, they decided against making her character a *divorced* woman, thinking Americans weren’t ready for it!

    7. And John Morrow said health care in the U.S. should be “federalized” i.e., “socialized, like it is in the UK.”

    We Democrats have been pushing for health care reform since Harry Truman.

    (When I repeat John Morrow’s arguments, the right wing attacks me.)

    Kristen Day of Democrats For Life said in 2014: “Roughly a third of the Democratic Party is pro-life. And while many do not call themselves liberal, they share the values which seem to identify with liberalism, particularly a commitment to helping the vulnerable and providing a social safety net.”

    The Democratic Party platform should support: Animal Rights, Defending the Affordable Care Act, Ending Citizens United, Ending Marijuana Prohibition, Giving Greater Visibility to Pro-Life Democrats, Gun Control, Net Neutrality, Raising the Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour, Responding to the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming, and a Sustainable Energy Policy.

  3. Pete Buttigieg is a typical Leftists. They lie so much they can’t keep track what their prior responses were to the question being asked now. And secondly, I know abortion at any stage is against God, and wrong!! No one should be getting pregnant in this day and age unless they want to. No excuses. But killing the innocent after birth is beyond comprehension !! Murder is murder. I have heard this person speak and in my opinion, he is dumber than a bag of rocks. He has nothing to offer this country . Trump/Pence 2020 for GOD and country!!!!

  4. Life begins at conception. God says so and so does science. And there is only ONE WAY to interpret the Bible…the way God wrote it. God forbids the murder of babies in or out of the womb

  5. If Mr. Buttigieg is so keen on the Bible with his poor misinterpretation of it claiming that life begins with breath, Then he needs to go back and keep reading the Bible because it also says ” You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination “! Leviticus 18:22 . King James Version . Mr Buttigieg had better be very careful when he mentions Scripture! It also says ” Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth . ” 2 Timothy 2:15 . King James Version . Thou shalt not kill – Thou shalt not do anything hurtful to the health, or life of thy own body, or any others ” . Exodus 20:13 King James Version .

  6. Pete better put his head back up his Buttigeg . I can not for the life of me figure out how he interprets the Bible in the manner he does . People say he should go back and re-read the Bible , I doubt though it would do any good . People such as him , liberals and most all Democrats , read only what they want and interpret what they read only in the way that they have pre-conceived . They don’t want any view but their own . Good , Bad or , indifferent ! As a president This guy would be worse than terrible . He would be a disaster .As a human being , he is a disgrace . I hope those who support him are pleased with themselves .

  7. Being a stiff-necked people perhaps the Almighty will chastise America by allowing one of these evil reprobates and their minions to rule over us. Pray that this never ever happens !

  8. LIFE BEING WHEN YOU HEAR THE HEART BEAT THESE PEOPLE ARE DISGUSTING AND VILE AND ANYONE WHO SUPPORTS THIS WILL BE ANSWERING TO GOD AND IT WILL NOT BE FUN FOR YOU BECAUSE YES HE FORGIVES BUT ONLY TO PEOPLE WHO REACH OUT AND ASK FOR IT AND TRUELY MEAN IT OTHERWISE FIRE PIT OF HELL IS WHERE ALL THESE SATAN SUPPORTERS ARE GOING SICK AND VILE

  9. [Buttigieg claimed the Bible states that “life begins with breath.”]

    That is a lie! The Bible proclaimed that after GOD molded the clay into Adam, that GOD breathed into the clay to give it life and create Adam.

    After this GOD proclaimed of others as having known them in the womb, a live soul in the form of a human baby that the abortionists like to call a fetus, but all scientists and all doctors proclaim that life stars at conception, probably when GOD inserts our soul into our conceived human body, which keeps developing even after we are born.

  10. I went by my granddaughters home last week and she a Bernie sticker on her car. She’s the mother of a son who’ll be four in May who she adores. I’m a Christian and ultra conservative. I asked her how she could support people who would permit abortion and especially late term abortion? She replied things are different now. After thinking about it a few days I’m going to write her a letter and ask this question. I married her grandmother after she divorced her grandfather with whom she had two children the oldest being her mother. Her grandmother became pregnant out of wedlock and married her grandfather. The question will be where would you be if your grandmother had aborted her mother?
    I’ll wager it won’t be things are different now.

  11. Buttigieg responded, “I’m just pointing to the fact that different people will interpret their own moral lights”. That is a fundamentally unchristian statement. It completely leaves out God. It does not acknowledge that He is God, that His will can be known. It suggests that we get to decide what is right and what is wrong, not God.

  12. As someone posted, homosexuality is described in the Bible as, “An abomination.” The homosexual and alphabet movement cannot allow that to AGAIN take hold in America without loosing their case completely, but there will come a day that God will enforce his will. However the sodomites keep putting lipstick on that pig because they have only one alternative, to admit the truth that the homosexual lifestyle male or female is against nature and Gods word. As for abortion, simply put, the Bible says,” Whatever you do to the least of these, you have done it unto Me,” the words of none-other than our Savior, Jesus Christ, and the unborn are certainly in that category. So if you murder an unborn child you essentially put Jesus back on the cross, but with no intention of allowing Him to raise from the grave for our salvation.

  13. Just read, Jeremiah 7:23-24, and that pretty much describes the hateful situation we find ourselves in today, our leaders failing to listen to and obey Gods commands because of their evil ways. As Jefferson said, “I tremble for my country when I realize that our God is a God of justice, but that His justice will not sleep forever.

  14. When Cain slew Abel, God said his blood cried from the ground. Later God clearly says life is in the blood. So according to my Bible the time a baby forms its own blood type, it is then a life. God also says He knew us before we were in our mothers womb. I wouldn’t want to be standing before the Judgement Throne of God guilty of the death of an innocent and defenseless life. That is the major thing, the Bible clearly condones killing of the guilty, but to kill for convenience of birth control an innocent and defenseless life and you will gain yourself the mark of Cain and judgement for eternity. The proof I have is the peace I have when I declare this truth. All those guilty of this have the proof of knowing they have lost their peace.

  15. Wow. Calling out someone for a supposed bald faced lie (it wasn’t… you’re lying) is pretty hypocritical from people that support the Prevaricator of the US (POTUS) who, at last count, has told more than 14,000 lies since his inauguration.

  16. Buttgigger claims to be a Christian, but the Christian Bible (KJV) says “if a man lays with a man as with a woman, he shall surely be put to death”!

  17. Mr Buttigieg obviously has not thought this through or even read the bible he claims to be quoting. There is no such statement in the Bible It does say before you were formed in the womb I knew you. It also clearly states that Thou shall not kill. Mr Buttigieg better actually read the Bible before he claims to quote it.

  18. /SO WHAT HAPPENED THE THE SIXTH COMMANDMENT OF GOD? Exo. 20:13 Thou shalt not kill. Kill to deprive of life : Cause the death of a person, animal, or other living thing). Synonyms: murder · cause the death of · take/end the life of · do away with. You can believe that every drop of blood is crying out to God for vengeance, Gen. 4:10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood, or your baby’s blood, crieth unto me from the ground. and that means the blood of the innocent babies’ women are killing wholesale. They are sacrificing that baby just as Israel did and sacrificing them to the devil. When a person kills a male, fertilizer, or a woman the seed bearer, it is not just one man or woman he is killing but his generations and every child who would have been born in that family, so you can see why God has the penalty of death. Murder cuts off generations of people because the fertilization comes from the man and the seed from the woman for children comes from them both. All you women who have had a baby killed by whatever means just remember this the baby’s blood is crying out to God. If you think, like Hillary Clinton, that unborn babies don’t have a constitutional right to life, but they sure do have a GOD given right to life just as all you women and Hillary and it is God given. Ladies if you or anyone is guilty of murder remember this, Isa. 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, a murderer, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. The courts and the leaders of this nation don’t have to face the punishment women do and if you let the devil keep lying to you you will face a holy God at the Great White Throne judgement and Exo. 23:7 Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent, babies, and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked. Nahum 1:3 The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: Matt. 5:21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: There are two Hebrew words that are translated as the word womb in Scripture. One is beten and is used commonly to express the area of the belly. The other word, rechem, is used exclusively to speak of the home of the first 9 months of a child. Women are evicting a baby from their home when they agree to abort

  19. For those of you that want healthcare like it is in Europe, it’s obvious that you really have no clue what healthcare in Europe is like. My sister lived in Europe for a number on years and even taught school there. She told me that people that had Europe’s socialized medicine had to wait all day to see a doctor when they were sick. She said when she and her husband became sick that they were seen immediately over the people that had been waiting all day because they knew the doctors knew they were going to get paid better. Who in their right mind wants healthcare like Europe ? Idiots.

  20. Pete is trying to appeal to both side of the issue and needs to remember that he that straddles the fence goes nowhere and ends up with a sore crotch.

  21. To hell with Mr. Light In Thelofers, what if his mother believed in the ideas he tries to pedal to the dems. Send it to fairyland.

  22. In many countries with a socialized health care scheme people with enough coins to rub together can opt into private insurance plans that offer additional benefits such as getting to be first in line to see a doctor, not having to wait months for surgery, longer hospital stays for recovery, etc. Which all goes to prove that if you have money you can get better health care than the masses. If the USA ever accepts socialized health care you can bet that the so called elite will not be subjected to the poor care that most of us will have to endure.

  23. HCB…You have no concept of the truth. You attack Pres. Trump for lying but Hillary lies every time she opens her mouth and Obama lied his way into our White House and that doesn’t bother you at all. Clearly it is YOU who is the hypocrite.

  24. Dicky…of course dems are excellent at lying. They have a good teacher. They have thrown God out and satan is their master. They also get their sick hatred from satan

  25. Yes, HCB, it was a LIE!!! NO WAY does the Bible condone abortion and God is very clear that life begins at conception. But you have no clue what the Bible teaches and neither do you care. You have no morals. It will really suck to be you when Jesus returns

  26. I would remind Pete that the Bible he references also says that “there is a way that seems right to man but that way leads to destruction”! Ponder that Mr Buttigieg…

  27. Mayor Pete is probably the closest to being another Obama of any of the Democrat candidates. He may also be the most dangerous. The other candidates mostly reveal what they are; Mayor Pete, like Obama, does his best to hide how radical he is. Beware the wolf in sheep’s clothing.

  28. Why the big surprise that Sleezy Pete lies. He lives a lie clearly defined obviously in a section in the bible that not only condemns homosexual acts but refers to it as an OBOMINATION. But then he is ok with two abominations (homosexuality and murder of a baby in the womb that God created and knew before it was born) and feels they are excusable according to his own definitions of scripture.

  29. Mayor Pete would be a nightmare as the Democrat nominee. I know President Trump would never disparage him for being gay but some Trump supporters might and the Dems will immediately play the LGBTQ+ card. In fact the Dems will do that if there is any attacks on his ability to serve as President. Also because he is gay the entire left will be for him even of they were previously for Sanders or Warren.

  30. BJ get over it Hillary is history tRUMP is reality and yes he is a serial liar. BJ I don’t think you are stupid but look at the falsehoods he perpetrates. Please even you have to know he is not an honest man.

  31. Linda M. as usual your post is right on target. Life begins with conception. It is God’s miraculous creation. God bless the unborn. Trump 2020. God bless President Trump & his family.

  32. jackass, you are worried about Pres. Trump being a liar???? The whole dem party runs on lies!!! They have no morals, as I’m sure neither do you. If Pres. Trump were a dem you would have no problem with him. Pres. Trump has done a lot of good for this country, but your sick hate won’t let you see the truth.

  33. I don’t think we should blame Pete for this. He has never had an original idea in his life, and I doubt this was one.

  34. You believe what the bible says? Oldest fable ever told, begins with once upon a time, just cant see that page, it was removed long ago , by someone with a warped sense of humor!
