U.S.-Präsidentschaftswahlen in 2020: Bernie Sanders hat heute seine Präsidenschaftskandidatur verkündet. Das war von Vielen erwartet worden. Von mir nicht. Um Missverständnisse zu vermeiden: ein Sieg von Sanders gegen Donald Trump bei den U.S.-Präsidentschaftswahlen in 2020 wäre sehr positiv, für die gesamte Menschheit. Nur bleiben da noch einige gewichtige Fragen offen.
Zunächst zu dem, was jetzt passieren wird.
“You can feel it now. In Congress, it has started to shift. It has started to shift. We’re not there yet. We’re not all the way there, but it has started to shift,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said at a presidential campaign event Sunday night in Davenport, Iowa, when discussing her support for the Green New Deal. “We’ve got new energy in this. We’ve got new blood in this. We’ve got new ideas in this.“
(24.1.2019) Most likely, though, none of these factors will be as important as Gabbard’s ability to appeal to the left wing of the party.
(5.2.2019) A populist progressive enters the presidential race
Tulsi Gabbard is a Democrat who was first elected to Congress in 2012 to serve the people of Hawaii. She is currently a member of the Committees on Foreign Affairs and Armed Services. She deployed twice to the Middle East, and was one of the first female combat veterans ever elected to Congress. She continues to serve as a Major in the Army National Guard. Tulsi Gabbard was Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee from 2013 until she resigned in 2016 to support Bernie Sanders in his bid for President. Tulsi Gabbard announced her intention to run for President of the United States on January 11th, 2019. She does not accept campaign contributions from corporations, lobbyists or political action committees.
NBC News published a predictably viral story Friday, claiming that “experts who track websites and social media linked to Russia have seen stirrings of a possible campaign of support for Hawaii Democrat Tulsi Gabbard.”
But the whole story was a sham: the only “experts” cited by NBC in support of its key claim was the firm, New Knowledge, that just got caught by the New York Times fabricating Russian troll accounts on behalf of the Democratic Party in the Alabama Senate race to manufacture false accusations that the Kremlin was interfering in that election.
Die demokratische US-Kongressabgeordnete Tulsi Gabbard, die 2020 Präsidentin ihres Landes werden will, wertet das als den realen Grund für die US-Intervention: »It’s about the oil … again«. Das südamerikanische Land verfügt über die weltweit größten bestätigten Erdölreserven.
When we stand united, motivated by our love for each other and for our country, there is no challenge we cannot overcome.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) plans to hold a rally Feb. 2 in Hawaii to formally launch her 2020 White House bid, her campaign announced Friday.
Gabbard will use the rally in Oahu to „gather with friends, family, and supporters to share her vision for the future of our nation,“ her campaign said.

As a member of the LGBT Equality Caucus in the House, Tulsi has advocated for LGBT Housing/Privacy rights, to end bullying and harassment in schools and has co-sponsored numerous bills including the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, the Respect for Marriage Act, the Healthy Families Act, the Equality Act and the Safe Schools Improvement Act. She has been endorsed by the Human Rights Campaign (View endorsements).
During her run for state legislature in 2002, Gabbard told the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, „Working with my father, Mike Gabbard, and others to pass a constitutional amendment to protect traditional marriage, I learned that real leaders are willing to make personal sacrifices for the common good. I will bring that attitude of public service to the legislature.“ The quote, which CNN’s KFile found during a review of Gabbard’s early career, shows how closely she aligned herself with her father’s mission at the time.
(17.1.2019) „I mean I’m really not going to take sides in this,“ he later added. „There are no candidates, with one exception, that I really don’t think should be president.“
„And who’s that exception?“ asked co-host John Berman.
„Tulsi Gabbard. I don’t think she knows what she’s doing and I don’t think she … is qualified. She’s not qualified,“ Dean responded.
„And what’s that based on?“ asked Camerota.
„About her dalliances with [Syrian President Bashar Assad], her statements about gay people. … I don’t know what she thinks she’s doing.”
Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard says she will run for president in 2020, ending months of speculation about whether the 37 year-old would join what is expected to be a crowded field of Democratic primary contenders in the race to unseat President Donald Trump.
Rania Batrice, who was a deputy campaign manager for Bernie Sanders in 2016 and is now a top aide to Gabbard, will be the campaign manager, Batrice says.
“ Sie wolle „das Thema Krieg und Frieden“ in den Mittelpunkt ihrer Kampagne stellen.
Following a move by House Republicans to block a vote on bipartisan resolution (H. Con Res. 138), legislation that would have ended U.S. military support for Saudi Arabia’s genocidal war in Yemen, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) today spoke on the House floor, urging Members of Congress to vote against the Republican rule and bring H. Con. Res. 138 to the floor for a vote.
In other high-profile contests, former congressman Ed Case appeared to be headed back to Washington to represent Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District, while Rep. Tulsi Gabbard easily won re-election in the party nomination to represent Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional District.
Hawaii is heavily Democratic, and like other areas where one party strongly dominates, the primary essentially functions as the general election.
Our country’s destructive policy of pursuing interventionist regime change wars, no matter the deathly cost or consequence, has left our veterans and communities here at home neglected and facing extreme hardship. Now more than ever we must speak out for peace.
Reject the neocon, interventionist foreign policy establishment and join our campaign for peace.
(23.5.2018) Hawai’i Democrat Tulsi Gabbard spoke yesterday (May 22) on the House floor, warning that a section of a defense funding bill (H.R. 5515) may lead to war with Iran.

(22.5.2018) Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) spoke on the floor today urging support for her amendment in the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that upholds Congress’s constitutional power to declare war. The congresswoman’s amendment strikes the language of Section 1225 of the FY2019 NDAA that authorizes the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of State to develop and implement a strategy to counter the “destabilizing activities of Iran” and only afterwards inform Congress. The amendment will be on the House floor for a vote tomorrow, May 23.
The name of Tulsi Gabbard is gaining momentum in discussions everywhere. Specifically, the topic of a bid for President of the United States for her is a highly trending topic. She is a personality powerhouse and a figure within the Democratic Party that is on a skyrocketing trajectory of popularity.
Zwei US-Abgeordnete haben eine Resolution eingereicht, mit der die diplomatischen Bemühungen von US-Präsident Donald Trump um eine Denuklearisierung der koreanischen Halbinsel unterstützt werden sollen.
