As the new year approaches and with it the start of the races that will determine the Dem nominee…..and as it approaches the candidates are dropping like flies……but through all that my candidate is still in there punching and scrapping for all the support she can get.
My support is for Rep. Tulsi Gabbard for she is the only truly antiwar candidate and we need to hear that point of view in this age of endless war.
She makes her points on war whenever she can get the coverage…..think about it…..$6.4 trillion spent on war…..while the rest of the Dem field cares less about the waste of money and especially the waste of human life……
The Democratic establishment is increasingly irritated. Representative Tulsi Gabbard, long-shot candidate for president, is attacking her own party for promoting the “deeply destructive” policy of “regime change wars.” Gabbard has even called Hillary Clinton “the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party.”
Senator Chris Murphy complained: “It’s a little hard to figure out what itch she’s trying to scratch in the Democratic Party right now.” Some conservatives seem equally confused. The Washington Examiner’s Eddie Scarry asked: “where is Tulsi distinguishing herself when it really matters?”
The answer is that foreign policy “really matters.” Gabbard recognizes that George W. Bush is not the only simpleton warmonger who’s plunged the nation into conflict, causing enormous harm. In the last Democratic presidential debate, she explained that the issue was “personal to me” since she’d “served in a medical unit where every single day, I saw the terribly high, human costs of war.” Compare her perspective to that of the ivory tower warriors of Right and Left, ever ready to send others off to fight not so grand crusades.
MSM spends more time trying to tear down Tulsi’s candidacy then actually caring what her message is….
Progressive journalist Michael Tracey claimed Tuesday that MSNBC is has dropped all pretenses for their “contempt” towards Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii).
The political news contributor said the left-leaning network has treated her fellow 2020 Democratic candidates, including businessman Andrew Yang and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) unfairly, but he argued that with Gabbard it, “crosses a certain threshold.”
“Fundamentally they’re beholden to whatever the market incentives are and right now it’s within their market interests to depict Tulsi as an infiltrator, as a Trojan horse in the Democratic Party and not deal on the substance with what she’s saying which is why over and over again they tar her as a Russian plant essentially,” Tracey told Hill.TV.
“There’s nobody who can really offer any kind countervailing view because it’s just not economically advantageous for them at this point,” he added.
So far all the attempts to lessen her appeal have failed……even the “major” candidate that attacked her, Kamala Harris, is out of the race…Tulsi is still standing.
However she has decided to not participate in the December Debate…..
The next Democratic debate is Dec. 19—but Rep. Tulsi Gabbard isn’t keeping that night free in her calendar. The candidate, who needs to get above 4% in one more state or national poll to qualify, says she won’t be taking part even if she makes the cut, the Hill reports. “For a number of reasons, I have decided not to attend the December 19th ‘debate’—regardless of whether or not there are qualifying polls,” the Hawaiian lawmaker tweeted Monday. “I instead choose to spend that precious time directly meeting with and hearing from the people of New Hampshire and South Carolina.” Gabbard’s highest level of support is in New Hampshire, where two recent polls put her at 6%, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports.
I understand why she is doing this….but I think it is not a well informed decision…but then I am not the candidate….or on her campaign team.
She may not become the nominee but I am proud of her for standing her ground and not waffling like Biden or Mayor Pete….
A good sign for Tulsi is that she is the darling of social media…..in spite of the MSM and Corporatist candidates attempt to assassinate her character and campaign…..
Over the last three months, stories about Gabbard have averaged 858 interactions on social media (likes, comments, shares) — more than any other candidate.
