A dream cage match……
Over the weekend the national story was the accusation by a Dem nominee against a Dem candidate as a Russian agent…..is this what the Dem Party has become?
My regulars have learned that I support the antiwar candidate for the Dem nomination, Tulsi Gabbard the representative from Hawaii…I will admit that she is not the most popular candidate but then she does not kiss the ass of the establishment to get her way.
It seems that Hillary Clinton has done something to take the heat off the Bidens in the news…..she has accused Tulsi of being a Russian asset…..yeah she is still butt hurt from her lose in 2016…..
At this week’s Democratic debate, Tulsi Gabbard called out “despicable” reports in the media suggesting that she’s a favorite of the Russians. Now it appears that Hillary Clinton is joining the Gabbard critics. In an appearance on the David Plouffe podcast Campaign HQ, Clinton suggested that the Kremlin does indeed like Gabbard, reports Axios. “I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” said Clinton. “She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far.” Note that Clinton did not actually name Gabbard, but Axios is not the only site to make an educated guess that she’s talking about the Hawaii congresswoman—the Washington Post and the Daily Beast make the link, too.
So what’s with the Gabbard-Russia allegations? As Axios notes, one factor is that Gabbard has defended Russian ally Bashar al-Assad of Syria, and she maintains (in sync with her isolationist foreign policy views) that the US has no business in a “regime change war” to oust him. A recent New York Times article noted that some fringe-right websites also have embraced Gabbard because they see her as the Democratic version of President Trump, though she chafes against their support. In the podcast, Clinton also labeled the Green Party’s Jill Stein a “Russian asset—I mean, totally.” She said the Russians will back Gabbard if Stein doesn’t run again because Moscow wants to divide Democrats in key states with a “vigorous third-party challenge.” As for Trump: “I don’t know what Putin has on him—whether it’s both personal and financial. I assume it is.”
Clinton is still butt hurt after Tulsi quit the DNC and backed Bernie in 2016 and still cannot let the fact go that she was a terrible candidate that had NO chance…..and now she is trying to help Biden and the other corporate candidates as best she can….it is a petty person that back stabs to get revenge for a perceived slight in 2016.
Gabbard accused Clinton of being the one, along with her “proxies and powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine,” behind efforts to slam Gabbard’s reputation, “afraid of the threat I pose.” Then, a challenge: “It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.” The tweets spurred instant reaction online, ranging from defense of Gabbard to mockery of her posts. Even a couple of her fellow Dems jumped into the fray, with Cory Booker posting a humorous reaction GIF and Andrew Yang going to bat for her. Clinton is taking heat over the flap, too: During a Fox News appearance Friday, ex-George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove said she should “put up or shut up” and offer evidence on her accusations on Gabbard
Let her step up and debate Tulsi face to face instead of doing what Dems seem to always do….a cowardly attack by back stabbing.
If she has something to say then say it so Tulsi’s face ..or STFU!
The Jill Stein, Green Party candidate, was also attacked and she has come out swinging as well….
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday made the baseless claim that Dr. Jill Stein, the Green Party’s 2016 nominee for president, was a Russian agent—an allegation that was met with derision from Stein and an invitation to debate.
“In light of the latest slanderous allegations from Hillary Clinton, I challenge her to a debate,” tweeted Stein.
Tulsi has very little media coverage and this should give her a bit more…that is until Trump does something else stupid…….watch the media they will be negative to Tulsi and not call out Clinton for this cowardly attack…..CNN was the exception.
Tulsi Gabbard Fires Back at ‘Queen of Warmongers’ Hillary Clinton For Suggesting She’s a Russian Asset
I listen to the corporate media joke about this accusation in more ways than not….it was a pathetic attempt by a washed up has been….
Clinton did what most cowards do….she backs out of an appearance….
Clinton has backed out of a speaking appearance at an event where Gabbard is scheduled to speak.
Clinton canceled her upcoming appearance at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summit next week in Washington DC, just as her war of words with the Hawaii Congresswoman is escalating, according to Slate.
Gabbard, 38, blasted Clinton as ‘queen of the warmongers’ in response to the 2016 loser’s allegation, and remains scheduled to headline the event’s program on Tuesday.
No one likes the old bitter hack. STFU!
I have a new found respect for Beto…..
“That’s not correct. Tulsi is not being groomed by anyone,” the former Texas congressman said on Saturday about his competitor for the Democratic presidential nomination. “She’s her own person, obviously has served this country and continues to serve this country in uniform, in Congress, as a candidate for the presidency. And so, I think those facts speak for themselves.”
The DNC is using surrogates to push a false narrative…..why? The corporate media and donors are fearful that Tulsi’s anti-war message will get a foothold and lead the party away from the M-IC donors that are keeping the Dem Party alive.
But he is still not my choice for a candidate.
