    PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey said Wednesday that it was President Donald Trump on the phone when he silenced a call from the White House while in the middle of signing papers certifying election results showing Trump narrowly lost the state. Ducey said he returned the call after the event but repeatedly declined to talk about his discussion with the president, though he did say Trump never asked him not to sign the certification of Arizona’s election. “The President has got an inquisitive mind,” Ducey said. “And when he calls he’s always got a lot of questions, and...

  • US airstrike takes out terrorist bomb-maker in Somalia

    The U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) has taken out a high-value member of the Al Shabaab terror group in Somalia on Thursday. AFRICOM confirmed the successful airstrike in an emailed statement to American Military News. The Al Shabaab member, who was not named, had a history of making explosives and was reportedly working to place Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) on a public road at the time of the strike near the vicinity of Kurtun Warey, Somalia.

    Tulsi Gabbard sued Hillary Clinton for defamation (and $50 million) Wednesday morning over Clinton’s comments about a “Russian asset” in the 2020 race, and the suit is filled with charged language accusing Clinton and “political elites” of harming democracy. The 16-page lawsuit includes lengthy descriptions of Gabbard’s call to public service, her childhood spent cleaning litter from beaches in Hawaii, the importance of 9/11 in her life, and her National Guard service, which she mentions 13 times. During an October 19 guest appearance on the Campaign HQ with David Plouffe political podcast, Clinton made comments about a potential third-party presidential...

    Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard filed a defamation lawsuit Wednesday against Hillary Clinton seeking $50 million in damages, claiming the former Democratic presidential nominee "carelessly and recklessly impugned" her reputation when she suggested in October that one of the 2020 Democratic candidates is "the favorite of the Russians." The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, says it aims to hold Clinton and other "political elites" accountable for "distorting the truth in the middle of a critical Presidential election." It also says Gabbard suffered an economic loss to be proven at trial.

    Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard was taking questions from town hall attendees in New Hampshire on Thursday when a man in the crowd asked the Hawaii congresswoman and Iraq War veteran about former Vice President Joe Biden. "Former Vice President Biden has randomly challenged people in the audience to a push-up contest even if they're in walkers. Do you think you could take him?" a male attendee asked the candidate, according to video of the moment posted on Twitter. Gabbard replied, "My educated and informed guess would be yes ... But I would take most people to a push-up challenge."...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin reportedly suggested during a meeting with Bashar al-Assad last week that the Syrian president invite President Trump to Damascus. In a video of the conversation between Assad and Putin at the Orthodox Church of the Virgin Mary in Damascus, Assad mentions the Apostle Paul’s conversion to Christianity after a vision at the gate of Damascus, Axios reported. “If Trump arrives along this road, everything will become normal with him too," the Syrian leader said, according to the news outlet.

    The Democratic National Committee (DNC) made a glaring omission from its new ad campaign urging "unity" among 2020 candidates. A new fundraising effort launched on Monday for the DNC's "Democratic Unity Fund" features 10 presidential hopefuls taking turns reading the same message. "I'm running to be your nominee, but no matter who ends up on that stage as our nominee in the convention, we need the whole Democratic Party to unite if we want to take back the White House and win seats all across the country and deliver a presidency consistent with our Democratic values," the candidates told viewers....

    The Times and Democrat ^ | Dec 13 2019 | Bradley Harris
    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard says foreign policy is domestic policy. For instance, the Democratic presidential candidate says pulling troops out of Afghanistan would free up funds for domestic needs. “We are continuing to spend $4 billion a month when we have so many needs in our community right here at home that are not being addressed because we’re told time and time again there’s just not enough money,” Gabbard said. The Hawaii Democrat held a roundtable discussion with several local citizens about various topics of concern on Friday afternoon in downtown Orangeburg. Gabbard stated that health care, affordable housing and education...

    For only the third time in U.S. history, the House of Representatives has impeached a sitting president. On Wednesday, the House voted almost entirely along party lines to pass two articles of impeachment accusing President Donald Trump of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress for his attempts to get Ukraine to investigate a political rival. Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard was one of the few Democratic holdouts — the only one to just vote “present.” Two Democrats voted no on the abuse of power article and three opposed the obstruction of Congress charge. “After doing my due diligence in reviewing...

    Washington Post ^ | Dec 13 2019 | Samuel Moyn and Stephen Wertheim
    Now we know, thanks to The Afghanistan Papers published in The Washington Post this past week, that U.S. policymakers doubted almost from the start that the two-decade-long Afghanistan war could ever succeed. Officials didn’t know who the enemy was and had little sense of what an achievable “victory” might look like. “We didn’t have the foggiest notion of what we were undertaking,” said Douglas Lute, the Army three-star general who oversaw the conflict from the White House during the administrations of George W. Bush and Barack Obama. And yet the war ground on, as if on autopilot. Obama inherited a...

    Tulsi Gabbard went after The View this morning during a contentious interview on… The View. The 2020 Democratic candidate wasted no time before taking a shot at the ABC daytime show, and particularly Joy Behar, who said in October that Gabbard could be “a useful idiot” for the Russians. On Wednesday, Gabbard fired back, telling Behar straight to her face that her remarks are “extremely offensive.” Added Gabbard, “You’re implying that I’m too stupid and too naive and lack the intelligence to know what I am doing.”
  • Tulsi Gabbard among likeliest House Democrats to oppose Trump impeachment

    Washington Examiner ^ | Dec 13 2019 | Joseph Simonson
    Of all the House Democrats undecided about voting to impeach President Trump, Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii has the least incentive to stick to the party line. The 2020 presidential candidate is giving up her seat to concentrate on her White House race, and she's long been an apostate against her party on some key issues. In New Hampshire earlier this week, Gabbard, 38, said she remains "undecided" on whether she'll vote to impeach the president. That makes her one of the few Democratic lawmakers to voice skepticism about the pair of impeachment articles passed by the House Judiciary Committee on...

    Although the U.S. is on a record streak for job-creation, many Americans still feel like they can't get ahead — it's not their imagination. The last three decades have seen the economy churn out more and more jobs that offer inadequate pay, a group of researchers found. "The history of private-sector employment in the U.S. over the past three decades is one of overall degradation in the ability of many American jobs to support households — even those with multiple jobholders," they wrote. The group wants to popularize a new economic metric, called the Job Quality Index, that goes beyond...

    Tulsi Gabbard trashed the Democratic Party as “not the party that is of, by and for the people,” accused Kamala Harris of trafficking in “lies and smears and innuendo” and attacked Pete Buttigieg as naive. Her performance at Wednesday’s debate earned an attaboy from the Trump War Room. And some rank-and-file Democrats are at wit's end with the congresswoman who Hillary Clinton called “the favorite of the Russians.” “The question is whether she seriously hopes to be the nominee or if she has another agenda … her attacks on other candidates and her positions on issues seem very personal, not...

    Democratic Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard took a shot at the media’s usage of the Democratic debates and compared the debates to “political reality TV” on a podcast Tuesday. Gabbard spoke on “The Joe Rogan Experience” with Rogan and Jocko Willink and discussed attacks from her fellow candidates, her presidential bid and her thoughts on the debates. Gabbard called the format of the debates “frustrating.” “You’ve got 60 to 75 seconds to get your point across, to talk about hey here’s my position, here’s what I would do with North Korea, here’s what I would deal with immigration reform in 60...

    A New York man with famous parents posted a message on Twitter on Saturday night, urging people to donate to the 2020 presidential campaign of U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii. The request came from Sean Ono Lennon, the 44-year-old son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono. “Even if you are skeptical of @TulsiGabbard you can’t say she doesn’t deserve to be part of this race,” Lennon wrote. “She is the primary candidate who is adding to a conversation around ending unnecessary wars. Please donate a dollar. She only needs 3000 more individual donations.”

    IRBIL, IRAQ — Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence made an unannounced Thanksgiving-week visit to Erbil Air Base, about 100-miles west of Iraq's capital city of Baghdad, on Saturday. The visit was meant to reassure U.S. allies in the region and to surprise U.S. troops ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday with a festive meal.

    "I don't want to be a flat Earther," David Weiss says, his voice weary as he reflects on his personal awakening. "Would you wake up in the morning and want everyone to think you're an idiot?" But Weiss is a flat Earther. Ever since he tried and failed to find proof of the Earth's curve four years ago, he's believed with an evident passion that our planet is both flat and stationary -- and it's turned his world upside down. "I absolutely freaked out," Weiss tells CNN in a phone interview. "It literally whips the rug out from underneath you."...

    U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is currently polling at just 1% nationally among the Democrats running for president, although she fares better in Iowa and New Hampshire. Who exactly are her supporters? According to the opinion poll analyses website FiveThirtyEight, the Hawaii Democrat’s support is “predominantly male” (her support among women is “practically nonexistent”) and “likely to fall outside of traditional Democratic circles.”
