Even if you are skeptical of @TulsiGabbard you can’t say she doesn’t deserve to be part of this race. 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.

2020 elections: Democratic establishment reaches boiling point with Tulsi Gabbard

(21.11.2019)

“She has views on foreign policy that are so outside the mainstream as to be a real liability to the Democratic Party,” said another Democratic senator, who requested anonymity to candidly discuss the party’s issue with Gabbard. “It is corrosive to have folks on that stage who represent views that are clearly not right.”

TV-Debatte der Demokraten: Einigkeit nur über „Trump muss weg!“

Ihr Mitbewerber Bernie Sanders warnte die Demokraten dagegen, sich ausschließlich mit Trump aufzuhalten.

„Aber wir können uns nicht einfach nur mit Donald Trump beschäftigen. Denn dann würden wir die Wahl verlieren. Die amerikanische Bevölkerung weiß, dass der Kongress laufen und gleichzeitig Kaugummi kauen kann. Das soll heißen: Wir kümmern uns um Trumps Korruption, aber wir müssen uns gleichzeitig für die arbeitende Bevölkerung in diesem Land einsetzen.“

Five things to watch in tonight’s Dem debate

The field’s four leading candidates — former Vice President Joe Biden, South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) — are all jockeying to deliver a strong performance at the debate, hoping to give their campaigns a burst of momentum heading into 2020 and the Iowa caucuses.

They’ll share the stage with six other candidates — Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), former tech executive Andrew Yang, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) and billionaire philanthropist Tom Steyer — all of whom are hoping for breakout moments of their own.

Pointing to his tireless advocacy on behalf of Medicare for All, his bold proposals to combat the climate crisis, and his commitment to “putting people above profits,” National Nurses United—the largest union of registered nurses in the U.S.—announced Tuesday morning that it is endorsing Sen.

Biden’s Support of Iraq War Shows How He Would Run the White House

Biden’s support for the invasion seems to demonstrate a belief that the United States need not abide by its international legal obligations, including those prohibiting wars of aggression. As a result, his support for the invasion of Iraq is not simply a “mistake.” It is very relevant and says a lot about what kind of president he would be.

US-Präsidentschaftskandidatin Tulsi Gabbard: Terroristen von al-Qaida waren unsere Bodentruppen in Syrien um die Assad-Regierung zu stürzen.

(17.10.2019)

“ Als Präsident werde ich diese Regimewechselkriege beenden, indem ich zwei Dinge tue: die Beendigung der drakonischen Sanktionen, die wirklich eine moderne Form der Belagerung sind, wie wir sie in Saudi-Arabien gegen den Jemen sehen, und die Zehntausende Flüchtlinge in Syrien verursacht haben. Syrische Zivilisten müssen sterben und verhungern, und ich würde sicherstellen, dass wir aufhören, Terroristen wie al-Qaida in Syrien zu unterstützen, die die die Bidentruppen in diesem andauernden Regimewechselkrieg waren.“

Rivals in Democratic debate make clear they see Warren as the front-runner

That was a central message of the presidential Democratic debate Tuesday, when the Massachusetts senator’s rivals peppered her with hostile questions and blunt challenges to her policies on healthcare, taxes and more.

The debate was the first to be held since Warren moved into the lead of many national and early-state polls, challenging Joe Biden’s status as front-runner, and she drew fire that she had largely escaped in earlier rounds.

Military veterans Gabbard, Buttigieg tangle over Syria during Democratic debate

“As president I will end these regime change wars by doing two things: ending the draconian sanctions that are really a modern-day siege the likes of which we are seeing Saudi Arabia wage against Yemen that have caused tens of thousands of Syrian civilians to die and to starve, and I would make sure that we stop supporting terrorists like al Qaeda in Syria,” she said.

What, Exactly, is Tulsi Gabbard Up To – A Response

A response to the NYTimes‘ recent smear piece on a Democratic Presidential Candidate, published three days before they are supposed to moderate the presidential debate.

The article also pushes people to believe that supporters of this congresswoman/service members are „unusual,“ or Russian bots. I personally assume this stems from the fact that a lot of people working in corporate media have been raised in somewhat of an elite bubble of neoliberals and ivy-league graduates. There’s nothing wrong with that upbringing, but it definite forces a perspective that doesn’t reflect the values and beliefs of everyday Americans.

This NYT article is so perfect: it’s the exact formula used by DNC-friendly media to smear anyone who it views as adversary: scream RUSSIA & NAZI over & over – no matter what the person’s views are – and your work is done. Look at Tulsi’s views which make her a FSB agent & Nazi:

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

What, Exactly, Is Tulsi Gabbard Up To?

She is now injecting a bit of chaos into her own party’s primary race, threatening to boycott that debate to protest what she sees as a “rigging” of the 2020 election. That’s left some Democrats wondering what, exactly, she is up to in the race, while others worry about supportive signs from online bot activity and the Russian news media.

Perhaps strangest of all is the unusual array of Americans who cannot seem to get enough of her.

The DNC and corporate media are trying to hijack the entire election process

The 2016 Democratic Primary election was rigged by the DNC and their partners in the corporate media against Bernie Sanders.

In this 2020 election, the DNC and corporate media are rigging the election again, but this time against the American people in the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada.

They are attempting to replace the roles of voters in the early states, using polling and other arbitrary methods which are not transparent or democratic, and holding so-called debates which are not debates at all but rather commercialized reality television meant to entertain, not inform or enlighten.

2020 elections: Tulsi Gabbard’s return sets stage for debate fireworks

“She’s laid down some of the toughest attacks of all of the debates, first against [Rep. Tim] Ryan, later against Harris,” said Democratic strategist Mark Longabaugh, an adviser for Bernie Sanders’ 2016 campaign, which Gabbard supported. “If I’m on the stage with her in this upcoming debate, I’d certainly want to be prepared to rebut or to deal with Tulsi Gabbard coming at me.”

2020 Candidates: Tulsi Gabbard

3. Speaking of the debates, why wasn’t she in the September debate?

Short answer: She didn’t qualify.

Slightly longer answer: She needed 2 percent support in four of the polls that the Democratic National Committee counted toward debate qualification.

But Ms. Gabbard qualified for the October debate, widening the lineup to 12 candidates.

TV-Debatte der US-Demokraten: Biden gegen Warren und Sanders

Biden war zwar einzelnen Angriffen der Konkurrenz ausgesetzt, geriet aber weit weniger unter Druck als noch in der zweiten Debattenrunde Ende Juli in Detroit.

Anders als in den vorherigen beiden Runden gab es diesmal nur einen Abend, an dem alle zehn Demokraten, die sich für die Debatte qualifiziert hatten, gemeinsam auf der Bühne standen.

The lack of foreign policy emphasis in these debates reflects a misunderstanding of what the president actually does. Presidents have unilateral power to do basically whatever they want in the foreign policy domain. Congress conceded that power long ago. Yet, it’s an afterthought

India’s actions in Kashmir are unacceptable: US presidential candidate

Senator Bernie Sanders, a US presidential candidate and the longest serving independent in US congressional history, has called out India’s actions in Kashmir.

Speaking at the Islamic Society of North America conference on Sunday, the senator said he is “also deeply concerned about the situation in Kashmir”. Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Imran Khan also addressed the conference via video link. The premier discussed Islamophobia and Kashmir.

NH Pollster: ‘Our Polling Schedule is Determined by CNN’

In an exclusive comment to CitizenSource, the University of New Hampshire Survey Center — one of the only DNC-approved pollsters in New Hampshire (due to the fact that they are “partners” with CNN) — explained why they wouldn’t be conducting a poll this month in the battleground state before the crucial September debate. Director Andrew E. Smith responded:

“The UNH Survey Center is funded by grants and contracts. We have contracted with CNN during this primary cycle as we have since 2000. Our polling schedule is determined by CNN and their polling budget.”

Mr. Smith, just a few days before, told a Tulsi Gabbard supporter that they would be happy to conduct a poll “if someone was willing to pay the $50,000 cost,” a cost that CNN usually covers. (Of course, even if a third party provided the funding, the poll wouldn’t count — even if it had the same methodology — simply because it wasn’t funded by CNN or another DNC-approved media organization).

30.08.2019 - 05:53 [ CNN Politics / Twitter ]

Tulsi Gabbard says she won’t run as an independent if she doesn’t secure the Democratic nomination: “I’ve ruled that out. I’m going to continue to focus on moving our campaign forward, continuing this grassroots campaign, continuing to deliver our message to the American people”

The DNC Would Rather Lose Than Nominate Tulsi Gabbard

Having served in the U.S. Army National Guard in a medical unit during the darkest days of pre-surge Iraq, Gabbard was forced to question all of her pre-war assumptions. From that point, she entered politics and quickly rose to prominence as one of the few voices of restraint and reason among Democrats now infected by the warmongering ruling class.

Since then, the four-term congresswoman has been lampooned by the leaders of her own party for her troubles.

30.08.2019 - 05:44 [ Michael Tracey ‏/ Twitter ]

Reminder: if the DNC simply accepted polls conducted by the two largest newspapers in two critical early primary states (NH and SC) — Tulsi would have qualified for the next debate. Their „rules“ make no sense and that’s why people are rightly cynical about this absurd exclusion

30.08.2019 - 05:36 [ Elizabeth Lea Vos ‏/ Twitter ]

We all know that @TulsiGabbard has been excluded from the third @DNC primary debate because she so thoroughly embarrassed neoliberal favorite Kamala-the-corrupt-prosecutor-Harris. This is a small preview of 2020: another shamelessly rigged primary & loss to Trump.
