America's New Transportation Secretary Is A Turd

While it escaped the notice of many Americans, our new Transportation Secretary was recently caught on video pulling one of those stunts that prove politicians untrustworthy. Riding in an armored Suburban to an area close to his destination, a bike was then unloaded from the rear of the SUV by security staffers and mounted by Pete Buttigieg who continued on his way with the gas-guzzling SUV following behind. 

Arriving at a meeting on a bicycle to give the impression you rode there because you care about the environment is not the same as accurately caring. This is the kind of disingenuous act that would have been vilified by mainstream media in the past but hardly registered a blip on the radar. One commenter on Twitter whose posting of the video quickly attracted more than a million views characterized this as "Pete Buttigieg's dog and pony show."

What Do Voters Need To Know ?
Pretending to save energy in the way he did should make all of us ponder why someone given the responsibility to guide future transportation policy merits our trust. Remember these policies geared at benefiting the environment are controversial and will come at great cost to taxpayers. Over the next few years, the Transportation Secretary will have great sway and influence over how several hundreds of billions of dollars are spent. This is a huge amount of money and how it is spent is critical to the countries future.  

Ironically the book authored by Buttigieg is titled; "TRUST: Americas Best Chance." The book by the 39-year- old Mayor was published on October 6, 2020. This underlines the hypocrisy and importance of knowing that America's new Transportation Secretary is a lying turd. The definition of turd is, a piece of fecal matter and to be labeled such is should be considered very offensive. In this case, being offensive is my intention. It confirms those of us that did not flock to support him during the Presidential primaries while the media was painting him as a fresh new face in the Democratic party were correct in our decision. 

Consider this karma, If good deeds contribute to good karma and happier rebirth while bad intent and bad deeds contribute to bad karma and bad rebirths as some people believe, I would not want to be that guy. I'm only showering him with the admonishment he deserves. The slamming and mocking of Buttigieg for what has been called his "phony Cabinet meeting bike stunt" is not enough. This is because he has been placed in a major position of power and with that should come some accountability. This position which includes overseeing more than 55,000 employees and pays a salary of $221,400 plus a lot of perks is no small thing.

Unbridled Ambition Is A Dangerous Thing
Buttigieg's pathetic propaganda effort merits our attention because it is a clear signal that what he says means may share little in common. On top of all this, we should remember his prior job experience and question just how qualified he is for the position he now holds. Like many political appointees is a bit light when it comes to job experience.  Unfortunately, the youthful qualities of being articulate and charming when combined with unbridled ambition is a dangerous and explosive combination.

But what of his background? It appears he finished college in 2007 at 25 and went on to run unsuccessfully as the Democratic nominee for Indiana state treasure in 2010. He then became Mayor of South Bend, Indiana from 2012-2020, part of that time he spent campaigning for the job of President. He also took a seven-month leave in 2014 during his mayoral term to deploy to Afghanistan. There, Buttigieg was part of a unit assigned to identify and disrupt terrorist finance networks. Part of his work included being an armed driver for his commander. 

Has He Been Projecting An Illusion?
From what my research revealed, Buttigieg's background is loaded with ambition and he leaps from opportunity to opportunity making the most of each by attaching himself to the "shiny parts" that give the impression he is totally dedicated and immersed in everything. Still, little of his short career screams or indicates he knows much about transportation or overseeing a huge operation like the United States Department of Transportation. In this role, he is part of Biden's Cabinet and serves as the principal advisor to the president of the United States on all matters relating to transportation. 

To put into context how a person at this level can affect policy, just the other day, Buttigieg told reporter April Ryan in an interview discussing President Joe Biden’s proposed $2 trillion plus infrastructure plan. He said, “There is racism physically built into some of our highways, and that’s why the jobs plan has specifically committed to reconnect some of the communities that were divided by these dollars,” the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor Buttigieg explained that several major highways in the United States negatively affect minority communities. 

His Kind Tend To Stay Around For Decades
If and when you get the time you can do a search on the incident that inspired this article knowing that before this stunt I had paid little attention to this clown that will most likely be around for decades to come. My point is Americans should remember that many of the policies activists claim are geared at benefiting the environment are controversial and will come at great cost to the taxpayer. 

Anyone who is talking about "Green Policies" that pulls the kind of hypercritical stunt our so-called Transportation Secretary just pulled should be asked to resign. For anyone silly enough to have bought a copy of his book, a refund is in order.
