We cannot for awhile……you see she still serves her country (something a few others should try they may like it)…..
“I’m stepping off of the campaign trail for a couple of weeks and putting on my army uniform to go on a joint training exercise mission in Indonesia,” the 38-year-old Hawaii National Guard member told CBS News.
“I love our country. I love being able to serve our country in so many ways including as a soldier,” added Gabbard, a Hawaii congresswoman since 2013, who is polling at around one percent in the contest to become the Democratic nominee for 2020.
“So while some people are telling me, like, ‘Gosh this is a terrible time to leave the campaign, can’t you find a way out of it?’ You know that’s not what this is about,” she said.
Gabbard, the first Hindu member of Congress and its first Samoan American, is among the youngest candidates in the Democratic field.
Seen from the outset as an outsider, she has delivered confident debate performances, partlicularly in the second round at the end of July.
Pundits in Detroit, Michigan, praised the congresswoman for a forceful argument in favor of ending “regime change” wars and instead pouring the money into improving communities back home.
I admit that I am pulling for Rep. Tulsi Gabbard to win the nomination of the Democrats….why? She has my ear because she talks an anti-war message….a message that I think the country has long ignored in favor of corporatist candidates that promise and yet to deliver.
Rolling Stone set down with Tulsi and got her thoughts on many many issues….since the mainstream media is trying hard to ignore her I shall help pass on her message to my readers.
Gabbard, 38, burst into headlines after a July 31 Democratic Party presidential debate, when she went after California Senator Kamala Harris’s record as Attorney General of the State of California. The “smear campaign” refers to the bizarre avalanche of negative press that ensued, as reporters seemed to circle wagons around a Harris, a party favorite.
The Gabbard-Harris exchange was brief but revealing, as a window into a schism in the Democratic Party. Harris was elected Attorney General of California in 2010. She frequently sought moderate or even conservative positions on issues like criminal sentencing, drug enforcement, and prison labor. These stances were standard among Democrats back when being “tough on crime” was considered an essential component of the “electability” argument.
Remember all the Russia-gate BS that we have been living with for about 4 years?
I ask because the media is saying the Tulsi is the new Russian propaganda machine……
What do Hawaii Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard and billionaire real estate heir Donald J. Trump have in common?
According to MSNBC, Gabbard is part of the Russian scheme that “Moscow used when it interfered in the 2016” election.
The establishment loathes any candidate who seeks an end to U.S. military adventurism abroad—so much so that they are willing to make the logically incoherent claim that Russian bots elected Trump. Now they’re apparently also attempting to elect his 2020 Democratic rival.
Tulsi visit to Syria has got her in hot water with the Neocons…..and at least a couple of the collaborators with in the DNC…..but there is a story there that needs telling…..
It was eight minutes of hell for Kamala Harris. Onstage at the second Democratic debate in Michigan, Harris was subjected to a blistering assault on her record as a California prosecutor at the hands of Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.
Afterwards, Harris was asked about Gabbard’s attack by CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “Listen,” she replied, “I think that this coming from someone who has been an apologist for an individual, [Syrian President Bashar al] Assad, who has murdered the people of his country like cockroaches. She has embraced and been an apologist for him in the way she refuses to call him a war criminal. I can only take what she says and her opinion so seriously, so I’m prepared to move on.”
Harris was referring to a controversial four-day visit by Gabbard to Syria in early January 2017, during which she met with Assad. While Gabbard’s performance during the debate was stellar (her name was the most searched of all the Democratic candidates), Harris’s jab regarding Assad seemed like all the mainstream media wanted to talk about.
How interesting…..Tulsi is getting more and more interest in her candidacy and now the MSM will do what they can to make her popularity disappear…if they can….I will do my best to make sure she gets a fair shake with the voter.
