Yipee! Today is “cyber-Monday” so internet will slow to a snails pace….so I will be posting a small amount today…hopefully tomorrow will be better.
I admit I was a Bernie supporter basically because he was an non-interventionist….when he sold out to the Dems I switched to the Green Party……during Bernie’s run up to the nomination a Rep named Tulsi Gabbard was one of his best surrogates….and she was asked to meet with Trump by his camp (say what?)
I have been concerned with Trump’s possible climbing into bed with the M-IC….but on a bright note he has had a face to face with Gabbard…
Could this be a vision of the future form a Trump foreign policy?
By inviting in Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a Democrat hostile to “regime change” wars, President-elect Trump may be signaling a major break with Republican neocon orthodoxy and a big shake-up of the U.S. foreign policy establishment, writes Robert Parry.
Two weeks after Donald Trump’s shocking upset of Hillary Clinton, the imperious and imperial neoconservatives and their liberal-interventionist understudies may finally be losing their tight grip on U.S. foreign policy.
The latest sign was Trump’s invitation for a meeting with Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, on Monday. The mainstream media commentary has almost completely missed the potential significance of this start-of-the-work-week meeting by suggesting that Trump is attracted to Gabbard’s tough words on “radical Islamic terrorism.”
Now the question is…is this a positive sign or just window dressing?
