Number Fourteen – Pete Buttigieg Enters Presidential Race Sunday…

Spoiler Alert…. Pete Buttigieg is officially set to kick off his entry into the 2020 Democrat presidential primary with big announcement tomorrow. However, FEC filings by his campaign yesterday showed his pre-annouced intent, he’s running.

There was a ton of DNC Club public relations and media communication effort over the past three weeks to push the former South Bend Indiana mayor into position.  That effort has paid off, and Buttigieg has bumped Elizabeth Warren to fourth place.

[Oh, there’s where the attacks will come from Watch Pocahontas go full bananas.]

Currently Buttigieg is polling third in Iowa: Biden (27%), Sanders (16%), Buttigieg (9%), Warren (7%), Harris (7%) and O’Rourke (6%), etc.

[Monmouth University Poll – Iowa]

The Club has done a great job pushing Pete into blocker position. Yes, notice how Pete backstops ♦Biden.   With the Data-Harvest complete the bloom is off the Beto, and he goes back to snorting adderall and flapping arms without cameras; however, this helps Bernie.

(FEC LINK)

Pocahontas and Harris will need to react fast to Buttigieg, and their oppo-research teams are likely diving into the gay mayors’ shallow history.

The Club has done very well with Pete.  Similar to RNC Club and Marco 2015, it is going to be difficult for the field to push past Pete with the executive-suite donors propping up their play.  Booker’s desperation today reflects the diminished value of his jazz hands.

That said, we are still not seeing the official launch of the ‘chosen one‘, the intended party donor candidate; however, we have now entered the timeline most favorable for launch, April to May/June/July 2019.

The DNC is predictable; it’s a club.  Inside the club the board members control everything. From the outside, it appears Joe Biden still holds the most board member votes.  The test run to bring out all the ‘creepy Joe’ trouble appears to have worked.  He goes silent now, and re-emerges having left the creepy memes in the past.  Smart play.

Again, planning and strategy is one of the key elements of the Democrat party.  It might seem weird at first, but the DNC club is not chaotic; and that is their weakness. It makes them predictable.

The chosen-one would generally come into play immediately after the democrats have set down a larger trumpeted baseline. The chosen-one roll out would be designed to flow from the Club’s baseline political narrative. The Democrats rarely, if ever, go off script….

Knowing it’s likely the ♦UniParty DNC is following a similar ♦UniParty RNC strategy, we can start to put the personal characteristics and political traits together and contrast them against 2016. Here’s the way it looks so far:

  • Senator Ted Cruz was to 2016…. as Senator Elizabeth Warren is to 2020
  • ♦Governor Jeb Bush was to 2016 as….
  • Senator Marco Rubio was to 2016… as Mayor Pete Buttigieg is to 2020
  • Governor John Kasich was to 2016… as Senator Bernie Sanders is to 2020
  • Senator Lindsey Graham was to 2016 as… Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is to 2020
  • Governor Mike Huckabee was to 2016… as Senator Corey Booker is to 2020
  • Senator Rand Paul was to 2016…. as Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is to 2020
  • Dr. Ben Carson was to 2016… as Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke is to 2020
  • Governor Chris Christie was to 2016 as… Governor J. Hickenlooper is to 2020
  • Governor Scott Walker was to 2016 as… Governor Jay Inslee is to 2020
  • Senator Rick Santorum was to 2016…. as Senator Sherrod Brown is to 2020
  • Governor George Pataki was to 2016 as…. Eric Swalwell is to 2020
  • Governor Rick Perry was to 2016…. as Senator Kamala Harris is to 2020
  • Governor Bobby Jindal was to 2016…. as Julian Castro is to 2020
  • Carly Fiorina was to 2016 as…. Senator Amy Klobuchar is to 2020
  • Governor Jim Gilmore was to 2016 as… Rep. Tim Ryan is to 2020

Reminder, despite their current stumbling with their executive suite efforts, anyone who is announcing their presidential bid ahead of Speaker Pelosi and the DNC delivering the election narrative (impeachment or similar) is not part of the DNC plan.

Pelosi and Club leadership will not easily give up on an impeachment plan that took months of effort.  They will work to modify it, shift angles of attack, adjust to Barr and yet still hope to retain the goal for as long as possible.  They don’t give up on these schemes easily….. As we saw admitted last weekend from Jerry Nadler, they are modifying their plans as each roadblock presents.

The “Chosen One” will likely surface during the April/May to June/July period when the legislative ‘impeachment‘ crew, the DNC crew and the media crew have been able to align the scheme for maximum political benefit.

We will most likely be able to identify the “Chosen One” by: (#1) the Pelosi narrative (when cemented) and everyone falls in line; and (#2) the “roll out” that accompanies the announcement. [ex. remember the Greek columns, trumpets, pomp, etc.?]

Once we get a few more names (approx. 16), and we discover the ‘Chosen Candidate’, we can start to have fun with the celebrity squares graphics and the top 16 contenders.

          I can’t name the “chosen one;” but, Michelle Obama would be about the stupidest choice possible; simply because, regardless of her supposed popularity amongst the left (which I’m NOT convinced of AT ALL…), she would solidify support for Trump like NO ONE else!

          That does not mean the left will not be stupid enough to nominate her. It simply means she would bring out Trump’s people in the same way Hillary did, only more so; GUARANTEEING an even bigger win for Trump than occurred in 2016!

        • Newhere says:

          I think the Obamas are trying to help torpedo Biden — make sure the negatives stick, perhaps pushing the oppo research themselves — to prevent him from Chosen One status, so that the prospect of Michelle’s candidacy becomes more attractive or even necessary. I don’t see any other Club member who could be airlifted in, if they decide it can’t be Biden. Of course, I’m sure Hillary will volunteer; but I think the Obamas are ready for that fight too.

          And Buttigieg would be a good foil for Michelle as a #2. The dems would hit all identity buttons, and in the right order to reflect their implicit hierarchy — female person of color at top of ticket; a nod to LGBTQ with the running mate.

Notice that NO white person gets a pass, even those who profess to be “allies;” both white women, and white men who happen to be gay, are skewered for their “privileged status within the patriarchy” and must apologize for it. Buttigieg has the gay thing going for him, but he’s still down two.

Imagine this site gone, and Twitter and Facebook removing conservative posts and groups right and left. Imagine Fox News completely broken by a coordinate boycott of advertisers. This election will be beyond awful.

      So I interpret your comment as very sensible and one of acute, responsible situational awareness. I second your motion that you are not being dramatic, but rather realistic.

      Having said that, the REAL. TICKING. TIMEBOMB. is voter fraud. If that bomb blows up big in 2020, the political chain reaction will be nuclear in scope and will blow up a lot of other things, including the great accomplishments to date of the Trump administration.

      I’ve said that here and in other places and to all in my daily orb of real time life.

      China, the economy, NK, ME, etc….all critically important integers in the whole national equation. But if PDJT were to lose due to massive voter fraud, where does that leave us with the rest from 2020 on?

      Think about it. 2018 midterms were a warm up….and all the illegal incoming potentially spiking the national ballot box.

      I’d love to see SD write a fresh post about this issue, then get it sent to one or more sources of the Trump administration, some of our fav conservative media people, Thomas Lifson of AT included.

      This must be more openly and commonly spoken about from the highest treetops.

          IMO, I think Trump probably won the pop vote in 2016 with fraudulent votes not being counted. Another good reason for the wisdom of the electoral college.

          Yes, he knows about the mid-term fraud. But there is no way to catch at least most of them without implementing e-verify and voter ID.

          Here in OK, even for local elections, you have to have a valid DL or an up to date ID, and then they look your name up to make sure you’re registered to vote. But then OK is one of the most Republican states in the Union. I believe OK was the only state wherein every county voted for Trump in 2018. We should be the model state for voter integrity structuring.

      Yeah, he’s gone around telling all the tv anchors that “unlike his Democrat opponents” he will concentrate on policy, not on character attacks. He couldn’t even make it past two weeks in an exploratory mode w/out attacking Pence, who, I feel, has handled the attacks with great class.

      Still, PB will keep that attack up. Gays just absolutely hate evangelical Christians and they donate big time to politics.

      I think this guy is a sleeper and yes, Trump’s campaign has to do some really good opp research on him, NOW. Concentrate on what he really has or has not accomplished in that little bitty “big city” of South Bend, Ind.

      One danger I see ahead for POTUS, even IF the economy remains humming nicely is that people tire of constant fighting between the parties, esp. fighting with this level of venom.

      While you and I understand that the “resistance” has been in force since his inauguration, and while most of the nation understands that as well, I think we might be surprised by how some folks, even while blaming the Dems for obstructionism and foul play, will say to themselves, “They’ll just keep it up if Trump if re-elected; they really WILL keep it up and we just_ can’t_ have_ it for 4 more years.”

      In my estimation, as unfortunate and as as illogical as it seems, weak folks like this are likely to vote for the Dem JUST TO have peace, just to shut off the constant wailing and fighting. I am sure you know people like this just as I do. They are people who have a nature that is really upset by confrontation. Now, since Republicans do not have the belligerent and chaotic history of screaming and resisting and obstructing and marching and boycotting and generally behaving like little kids when they don’t get their way, this group of voters feel that even IF Trump has produced good results, they are tired of the fighting…and they’ll go with the opposition in hopes the country will have some peace and quiet for 4 years.

      What to do about such folks? Work our tails off to bring out the voters who sat in out in 2016 to offset them. While Trump won, it was by the skin of his teeth against a horrible candidate who took several states for granted. It won’t be that way this time.

    Just checking in here.
    Read the article. Sundance is sticking to his strategy forecast; that’s good. It underscores the “predictability” aspect of the Dimms that SD has repeatedly confirmed for us.

    Read the comments. Have concluded to keep my ammo dry on this one.
    This gentleman’s name and life style choice is unfortunate. There is little one can say that doesn’t eventually lead downhill.
    I’ll leave it at that.

    I was living in South Bend when he first ran for mayor. He seemed really generic and decent. I don’t ever remember him saying anything I found controversial. Perhaps that was the local news filter bubble. It’s possible he was some secret hyper radical – growing up with apparently a Marxist father.

    I wonder if he repeats the most ridiculous liberal ideas because he really believes them, or because he thinks he needs to be an extremist to get noticed and win the primary. But every so often, he throws in a line or two that make him sound like a reasonable moderate. Surely he knows that being homosexual is the primary reason he’s in third place – thus provoking an ignorant fight with the great Mike Pence checks a lot of boxes for him. It’s sad and pathetic.

    These days, his media appearances make him sound stupid. Calling for a change in the Electoral College would guarantee Presidential candidates will never visit Indiana ever again. That was the first issue he mentioned on CBS.

      My only disagreement with you Anon is that I don’t thing PB ever says a line that sounds reasonable. He has a knack for saying the most outrageous things in an even, reasonable sounding tone. I think he has risen in the polls for this reason only-he says radical things without shrieking like Bernie or Kamala. Just like the snake charmer named Obama.

    It’ll be Biden. The loyal Dems are saying “No big deal” about his fondling little (and bigger) girls. He’s also the only possible anti-Trump contender in Middle America. Remember, you heard it here first. /LEJ

    I think a key for Trump and the Gop in general is health care. It’s a touchy subject still. Republicans have only had a bad record on it in most people’s eyes.

    The gop plan has to be innovative, the people presenting it have to be attractive, believable, energetic, and the POTUS has to have a GRASP of it….and he MUST show empathy to those who need to feel that someone cares about their health needs.

    The plan and those speaking about it must be specific about HEALTH CARE, not just INSURANCE. They can’t look as if they are pandering. In fact, I’d like POTUS to start at least by the end of this year, (the fall, perhaps), having panels, really substantive talks about how to get quality health care to people of all incomes AND in geographic areas where doctors no longer are.

    I have always believed that politicians underestimate the average American’s ability to understand difficult problems. Trump needs to get medical people OUT there with him BEFORE the campaign season revs up or else it will simply be seen as a campaign tool rather than a serious effort to get this right this time.

    No. We already tried turning the White House over to two gay guys. It was a disaster. Do the democrats really think it’ll work out this time just because these two gay guys are white?

      Pete decided to use this first name for his campaign signs. Not surprising right?
      But I think we should help him and add an exclamation point after it for the subliminal message.
