Never has America’s infrastructure been more unsafe in modern memory, but what else is to be expected from a Transportation Secretary who is in his position now only due to his sexuality?
After all, Pete Buttigieg is a white male, which means he’s automatically an enemy of the Democrat Party, unless he has some other increasingly tribalized identity politics to bring to the table – such as being a rather vocal advocate of the militant LGBTQ+ mob.
So, while Buttigieg may have melted bleeding hearts across the nation through taking two months of paternity leave during the supply chain crisis, he has done little else to inspire any sort of confidence amongst American citizens.
For that matter, he hasn’t even done much to help lower earning workers who he claims to represent, given that he opposed giving railroad workers an additional sick day, in alignment with Biden (ironically the most vacationed president ever).
Even Senator Bernie Sanders shredded that particular move.
Buttigieg has earned a number of dubious distinctions since taking over as Transportation Secretary, however, including having one of the worst Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) track records possible.
Indeed, the FAA has just issued another warning to airlines, warning them about the “need for continued vigilance and attention,” especially given six near-collisions that occurred on American runways this year … passenger jets have nearly collided with a helicopter, an ambulance, and other aircraft, underscoring the extent to which all elements of infrastructure appear to be going bonkers under Buttigieg’s alleged watch.
But don’t worry, he’s allegedly available via email while sipping wines in Portugal with his husband.
What’s garnered the most attention, however, is the train system: Multiple highly disturbing derailments have now plagued the nation, and perhaps one of the most disturbing elements of all is the extent to which the media is not covering the catastrophes.
Indeed, the derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, was unconscionable, as well as reflective of Buttigieg’s inability to prepare for any crisis.
In fact, he can’t even be bothered to show up until three weeks later, sauntering around the Ohio town in designer heels before taking off in a gas-guzzling, darkly tinted SUV.
Since the East Palestine derailment, several others have occurred, many of which involve hazardous materials.
Considering that past data has shown that at least 99 percent of trains make it to their final destination, and very few derailments involve hazardous materials, the level of literally hazardous derailments under Buttigieg’s watch raises several extremely uncomfortable questions.
Now, yet another derailment has occurred, with at least 25 cars derailing Sunday morning.
“At least 25 cars on a train traveling through Montana derailed Sunday morning, spilling out contents into the area and a local body of water … First responders reported to the scene immediately and told local outlets there was no threat to the public, however, it’s unknown what the cars were carrying,” the Daily Mail reported.
“It’s unknown what the cars were carrying.”
Troubling. Especially as whatever the trains were carrying may well have been hazardous in nature.
“The Montana crash also comes less than one week after 31 cars on a 70-car train derailed in North Dakota,” the Daily Mail added.
So, exactly how many derailments have occurred under Buttigieg’s watch?
Hard to say, considering CNN covers next to none of them.
One can only hope these derailments are not the result of nefarious cyberattacks from abroad, especially given how deeply integrated the Biden administration is with varied authoritarian regimes.
