    According to St. Joseph County Right to Life (SJCRTL), four of the group’s 10 benches in South Bend, Indiana, advertising abortion pill reversal and resources for women experiencing unplanned pregnancies were vandalized. The discovery of the vandalized benches occurred shortly after news broke of the 2,246 fetal remains found in the home of former-South Bend abortionist Ulrich Klopfer. Jackie Appleman, executive director for SJCRTL, stated in an email to Live Action News, “Condemning Dr. Klopfer’s actions and sharing healing with those hurt by him should be something our community can unite around. Instead, people are lashing out in anger against...

    South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg decided to finally chime in on the fact that 2,246 fetal remains were discovered at the home of the late Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, a former abortionist, who died earlier this month. Family members were going through belongings on his property when they made the discovery. "Like everyone, I find the news out of Illinois, extremely disturbing," Buttigieg told reporters. "I think it's important that that be fully investigated. I also hope that it doesn't get caught up in politics at a time when women need access to health care. There's no question that what...

    SOUTH BEND, Ind.-- Thousands of fetal remains were found at the home of a former South Bend abortion doctor, WSBT reports. The remains were discovered while family members were searching through the home of Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, who passed away on Sept. 3. His home is in Will County, Illinois. WSBT reports Kloper used to practice at the Women's Pavilion in South Bend. His medical license was suspended in 2015 after he was accused of failing to report an abortion on a 13-year-old girl.

    Democratic presidential hopefuls are hitting up potential donors after their participation in the seven-hour-long event. After participating in CNN's 10-candidate, seven-hour-long climate town-hall extravaganza on Wednesday night, some of the leading candidates for president are using the event to pitch potential donors. The Bernie Sanders campaign blasted a fundraising request pegged to the network's event on Thursday morning. "Last night I joined 9 other Democratic presidential candidates at CNN's Climate Town Hall, and there is no question that our Green New Deal plan to address the climate emergency is the most ambitious plan of anyone else in this race," the...

    Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is capitalizing once more on his executive experience as Southbend mayor to boost his run for the White House as his campaign seem to have more and more difficulty breaking into the top tier of candidates all vying to be president in 2020. In an exclusive interview with CBS-affiliate television station, WCAX TV the Indiana mayor boasts his experience working on the ground with his constituents. He talked of how he “makes things happen” – being “responsible for everything from incident management to economic development.” In an apparent swipe at his rivals, Buttigieg, the first...

    Mayor Pete Buttigieg on Friday released a plan to combat addiction, mental health, and loneliness, but he warned that the president himself was part of the cause. “I think that when you have national leadership pitting people against each other, telling some people that they don’t belong, and creating a general atmosphere of general chaos and just plain meanness, then of course stress levels go up,” he said in an interview with Teen Vogue. “And I think stress is a big part of what goes into health. So we can’t pretend there’s no health consequences to what’s going on in...

    American Thinker ^ | 7/29/2019 | Don Boys
    Politicians have a constitutional right to be stupid, but Pete Buttigieg is taking advantage of that right. Pete is wrong about religion, abortion, and homosexuality. I don't want someone with three major failures in the White House. In a recent conversation with USA Today, Buttigieg characterized conservative Christians as "saying so much about what Christ said so little about, and so little about what he said so much about." Pete was using the absence of evidence argument — i.e., since Christ didn't prohibit perversion, then criticism of LGBTQ crowd is wrong. However, that is fallacious, since Christ didn't speak about...

    As South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg commands national attention with his media-savvy presidential bid, the firestorm back home over an officer-involved shooting shows no sign of settling soon -- with the mayor facing criticism not only from protesters but police who say his handling has crushed morale and risks a “mass exodus” from the force. “Morale around here has been terrible. We do nothing,” one police officer, a 20-year veteran of the force, told Fox News. “We call ourselves firemen, we sit around in parking lots until we’re called and then we go to the call, because if you say...

    All of the Democratic presidential candidates have condemned Donald Trump's racist comments directed at four congresswomen last week, and the chants of "send her back" directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar at a rally a day later, but Pete Buttigieg took it a step further on Saturday. Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, was stumping in Iowa over the weekend, where he told ABC News that the issue of white supremacy -- an accusation often lobbed at Trump by the left -- "could be the lurking issue that ends this country." The mayor said the current climate could escalate, going...

    PROVINCETOWN, Mass. — Presidential hopeful and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg — who has made history as the first openly gay presidential candidate — hosted a town hall-style meeting and attended a private fundraiser in Provincetown, Mass., known as one of the gayest ZIP codes in America. And the importance of the moment was not lost on the many LGBTQ fans who showed up to give him a hero’s welcome. “In my lifetime — as someone in his 50s who came out at 18 — I never thought I’d see a viable, openly gay presidential candidate,” Jay Coburn, who...

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” 2020 presidential candidate South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) criticized President Trump’s plans for July 4th celebrations by stating that the event the president has planned “makes America look smaller.” Buttigieg said, “I think it makes America look smaller. One of the reasons I joined the military was that, in a small way, I wanted to be part of seeing to it that my country was not the kind of place where a leader feels the need to boost his own ego by rolling tanks down the streets of our capital. We’ve always...

    Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg hauled in a whopping $24.8 million in fundraising from nearly 300,000 donors the past three months, his campaign announced on Monday. That’s a massive figure for a White House hopeful who was largely unknown just four months ago. And it’s more confirmation – along with polls – that South Bend, Indiana mayor has gone from a long-shot to top-tier contender for the Democratic presidential nomination. “This fundraising report shows that Pete’s message is resonating with Americans, and it’s proof that we are building an organization that can compete,” Buttigieg campaign manager Mike Schmuhl wrote in...

    Six shootings occurred the weekend of his town hall. In one instance, a witness reported that the shooter was aiming specifically at police. "To start with trying to heal, the mayor just needs to resign," activist and pastor Mario Sims told the Washington Free Beacon, adding that Buttigieg should demote Police Chief Scott Ruszkowski to cleanse the department of bad blood. Sims also added that he believes Buttigieg is racially "tone-deaf" and should consider retiring from politics until he has "spent some time evaluating this." "I understand political ambition, I understand that," Sims said. "But you're playing games with the...

    Pete Buttigieg returned to South Bend on Saturday to attend events in memory of Eric Logan, an African American man shot dead by a white police officer in the small Indiana city. It will be the Democratic presidential candidate’s first visit to the city he runs as mayor since a contentious town hall event last weekend threw a national spotlight on the shooting, Buttigieg’s record in office and his relationship with black voters. After consulting with people close to Logan’s family, Buttigieg will not attend the funeral. He will instead participate in a peace walk and a community event including...

    South Bend’s police union accuses Mayor Pete Buttigieg of playing politics with the shooting of Eric Logan and “driving a wedge” between officers and residents. In a release late Monday, the South Bend Fraternal Order of Police said it supports Sgt. Ryan O’Neill, the officer who fatally shot Logan in the parking lot of Central High Apartments on June 16. Police have said Logan was breaking into cars and approached O’Neill with a knife. The statement says the actions of Buttigieg, who is running for president, have been divisive and “solely for his political gain and not for the health...

Early last Thursday morning, 28 shell casings were recovered on and around Meade Street, where two men allegedly opened fire on an occupied vehicle with the police department's own Nuisance Abatement Vehicle parked nearby.

    Joy Behar kicked it off by saying Buttigieg should “fix what’s going on in South Bend” before trying to win the White House. “Do your job first there, and then run for president,” Behar said. Sonny Hostin, who went to college in South Bend, noted that Buttigieg “has a problem with the African-American community in South Bend which is 30% of the community. That’s significant.” After a commercial break, Whoopi Goldberg chimed in, saying Buttigieg’s response to protesters revealed that he was “more than a little green around the edges.” And in case there was any confusion on how the...
