  • Democrats hate Tulsi Gabbard because she reminds them what they used to stand for

    "I think it is important for us to send a signal that we are not hellbent on regime change,” presidential candidate Barack Obama said in 2007. He was talking about Iran but citing former President George W. Bush’s disastrous precedent of ousting Saddam Hussein in Iraq. Obama defined his candidacy in opposition to that 2003 regime change war and eventually became president. Times have changed. Most Democrats in Tuesday night’s CNN/New York Times presidential debate blasted President Trump’s decision to withdraw American troops from northern Syria and said they believe his decision endangers the Kurds. But only one candidate said...

    Kurdish forces allied to the U.S.-led coalition in the fight against the Islamic State have committed war crimes by deliberately displacing thousands of civilians and demolishing their homes in northern Syria, according to a human rights group. In a report released Tuesday, Amnesty International said that the People's Protection Units (YPG)—the military wing of the Syrian Kurdish political party, the Democratic Union Party—had in some cases threatened residents with U.S. airstrikes if they did not leave their homes. The YPG has been a key ally on the ground for Western forces battling ISIS in Syria. Earlier this year, the YPG...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer announced at a news conference outside the White House on Wednesday that they had just walked out of a meeting with President Trump on Syria policy, after he apparently called Pelosi a "third-rate politician" and angrily suggested the Democrats probably appreciated communist Islamic State terrorists in the Middle East.

    Gabbard — who has come under criticism during the campaign for her controversial meeting with Syrian dictator Bashar Al-Assad, particularly by Kamala Harris — said that “the slaughter of the Kurds being done by Turkey is yet another negative consequence of the regime change war we’ve been waging in Syria.” She continued that it’s not just Trump who has “the blood of the Kurds on his hand,” but also many other politicians and figures in the “mainstream media” who have “been championing and cheerleading this regime change war.” Gabbard then blasted both news organizations sponsoring the debate: “The New York...

    New Hampshipe Union Leader ^ | Oct 13 2019 | Union-Leader editors
    We hadn’t thought of Tulsi Gabbard as a whistleblower but the Democratic presidential hopeful from Hawaii may have to enter a witness protection program to be shielded from her own party. Gabbard asked supporters last week whether she should boycott this Tuesday’s televised “debate.” She says it’s not a true debate (she’s right there). She says it’s part of her national party’s effort to replace the role of voters in New Hampshire and elsewhere by “using polling and other arbitrary methods which are not transparent or democratic...” The “so-called debates,” she says, “are not debates at all, but rather commercialized...

    (CNN) — Tuesday night's CNN/The New York Times debate stage will feature a record 12 candidates. It could be the last debate appearance for up to 33% of them. Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke are all in deep danger of not making November's debate. That means Tuesday may be the last chance fo those four to give their campaigns a realistic chance to have a measure of success. Fundraising and polling qualification thresholds have been bumped up once again for November's debate. Jumping...

    Mike Bloomberg has indicated to associates in recent weeks that Joe Biden’s recent struggles are making him rethink his decision to stay out of the 2020 Democratic primary, according to people familiar with the discussions. “Bloomberg is in if Biden is out,” says one source. Biden has not indicated any desire to drop out any time soon. Bloomberg could be in for a showdown with Elizabeth Warren, whether he runs or not, as he has been one of her biggest critics on the Democratic side. “I think it’s something he wants. He has not been shy about that,” one of...

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) slammed The New York Times' feature of her Saturday afternoon. The Democratic presidential candidate tweeted "As if to prove my point, NYT just published a “greatest hits” smear piece." "All your favorite hits in one article! These are the folks who will be acting as the “neutral” questioners/moderators of Tuesday’s debate lol," Gabbard continued. The Times' article is titled "What, Exactly, Is Tulsi Gabbard Up To?" with the sub head reading "As she injects chaos into the 2020 Democratic primary by accusing her own party of “rigging” the election, an array of alt-right internet stars, white...

    Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is controversial within her party. She says the U.S. should talk to its enemies. She was criticized for meeting with Syrian dictator Bashar Assad. But Democrats were supposed to be the anti-war party, I say to her in my newest video. "They're heavily influenced by a foreign policy establishment ... whose whole power base is built around continuing this status quo," Gabbard tells me. "So much so, to the point where when I'm calling for an end to these wasteful wars, they're saying, 'Well, gosh, Tulsi, why are you such an isolationist?' As though...

    The upcoming twelve-candidate Democratic presidential primary debate is probably going to be another mess, but one highlight will be the return of Tulsi Gabbard to the stage — good news not just for Michael Brendan Dougherty, but for everyone who wants to see an actual debate. In a series of prime-time meetings that have included a lot of repetitive platitudes and all-too-convenient anecdotes about an American everyman that candidates met on the trail, one of the few genuine bits of drama comes from the question of who Gabbard will go after and why. The Hawaii congresswoman’s debate performances haven’t done...

    President Trump has clearly been itching to leave Syria for months, once dubbing it nothing but "sand and death." As Trump himself was at pains to point out, he was elected on a promise to get out of "these ridiculous endless wars." But the speed of his decision to withdraw US forces from northern Syria threatens to wreck almost every goal the US has in the Middle East just now. Firstly, the sudden withdrawal of US forces -- designed to leave their erstwhile allies the Syrian Kurds as exposed to a Turkish advance as possible -- comes just as a...

    Thousands of pro-lifers stood outside in all kinds of weather Sunday to pray for unborn babies and their mothers. People gathered in about 1,600 communities in the United States and Canada for the annual Life Chain, according to organizers. The event brings pro-lifers together in their local communities to pray for an end to abortion and peacefully witness to the truth about life in the womb. In West Reading, Pennsylvania, about 75 people stood on the sidewalks in the rain, holding signs encouraging mothers to choose life, the Reading Eagle reports. “We got rained on quite well but people stayed...

    Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., may have had what some are calling her "please clap" moment on Thursday when she got a not so favorable response to the question if America was "ready" for her to be president. Speaking at a town hall event in Reno, Nev., Harris told attendees she wanted to "engage in real talk" about the state of the 2020 race. "In this election, in the last couple- I mean, maybe couple of months, certainly a few weeks, there's this whole conversation that has been coming up about electability focused on our campaign," Harris said. "Is America ready...

    Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard called out her party rivals for trying to cash in on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's presidential impeachment inquiry. "Candidates for POTUS who are fundraising off 'impeachment' are undermining credibility of inquiry in eyes of American people, further dividing our already fractured country," the Hawaii congresswoman said on Twitter. "Please stop. We need responsible, patriotic leaders who put the interests of our country before their own."

    2020 White House hopeful Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) announced Friday that she now supports an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump over his phone call with the leader of Ukraine after affirming this week that the conversation fails to make a “compelling” case to oust the president. “Up to this point, I have been opposed to pursuing impeachment because it will further divide our already badly divided country,” Gabbard said in a statement. “However, after looking carefully at the transcript of the conversation with Ukraine’s President, the whistleblower complaint, the Inspector General memo, and President Trump’s comments about the issue,...

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D., Hawaii) has seen little evidence that fellow presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) is prepared to be commander in chief, she said on Hill.TV's Rising on Thursday. "I haven't seen much come from her in the way of what kind of leadership and decision-making that she would bring to that most important responsibility of the president has as commander in chief," Gabbard told Rising host Krystal Ball. "And just as a soldier and an American that's very concerning for me."
