Before you think this is an endorsement of Tulsi Gabbard, let me say that it’s not, this is merely meant to point out how ridiculous Hillary Clinton and her cronies are.
Tulsi Gabbard: The Rational Democrat
During my time serving with the 196th Infantry Brigade which is a Training Support Brigade (TSB) and part of the United States Army Pacific and Headquartered at Ft. Shafter, my unit advised Tulsi Gabbard’s National Guard unit among many others. During this time, she was a Captain and later promoted to Major and was in her 1st then 2nd terms in Congress. I never advised her as she’s in the Military Police Corp and I served in the Signal Corp, but our paths crossed on a few occasions. I will say, I have a professional Military opinion about her, but that’s neither here nor there but, I’ll defend her service to the country in uniform, something she continues to do. She’s served in harm’s way as an Enlisted Member of the Army and as an Officer and was the first female in the 50-year history of the Alabama Military Academies Officer Candidacy School to graduate as the distinguished honor graduate.
Having said that, there’s a lot of things politically that I disagree with her on, but there are areas I do agree with her on, but not the point. The point is she’s by far the most rational Democrat seeking the 2020 Democratic Presidential nomination, but that’s not a high bar. Of course, these days, being a Democrat that thinks for herself or himself and outwardly disagrees with the party elites by being rational gets one labeled a “Russian asset.”
Identity Politics on Russian Steroids
Democrats for far too long have resorted to identity politics, name-calling and leveling false accusations at their opponents. Just ask nearly every Republican in the past 30+ years who dared to stand up for facts, reality and common sense. In the same breath, this tactic began by playing class warfare and painting Republicans as only being for the rich or the “haves” while Democrats pretended to truly be for the “have nots.” These attacks have worked due to weak-willed Republicans who wouldn’t stand up to them which allowed Democrats to expand from simple class warfare to whatever we’re calling what they’re doing now. Now, Democrats do all that and then some, to include completely making up scandals, just ask President Trump.
Some people thought the “Russia Collusion” narrative would be the end of it, one way or another. As we heard the Democrats proclaim, “just wait until the Mueller report” and now that it was a big flop, most of us knew they would move on to the next thing. The next thing is now Ukraine but in some Democrat circles, they’re saying that “Ukraine and Russia are all one big conspiracy” but we all know that it’s only a part of the bigger “Russian Collusion Delusion.”
Now we see that the “Russian Collusion Delusion” is just another weapon they’ll use to go after anyone who’ll not get inline and regurgitate their false narrative. Just ask Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who according to the failed 2016 Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton as she alleged that Russians are now “grooming” Congresswoman Gabbard to run as a third-party candidate in 2020 all while claiming that 2016 Green Party nominee Jill Stein was also a Russian asset.
Gabbard replied to Hillary’s ridiculous comments in a series of tweets:
“Great! Thank you
You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a …
… concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies and …
… powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose.
It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.”
I’m guessing Hillary hasn’t gotten over 2016 when Gabbard resigned her post as Vice Chairman of the Democratic National Committee to endorse Senator Bernie Sanders citing his “cautious foreign policy” vs Hillary’s record on war and foreign policy. At the end of the day, the Democrats are going to eat their own and I’m bringing the popcorn. However, Tulsi Gabbard isn’t a Russian asset.
