Tulsi Gabbard certainly has some political style. As we have declared in the past, she is one of the politicians in our time who isn’t afraid of calling a duck a duck. By standing against the Trump administration which still wants to spill innocent blood in Syria, Gabbard is indirectly standing against Trump’s personal boss, the infamous Benjamin Netanyahu.
Both President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, says Gabbard, have been protecting “al-Qaeda and other jihadist forces in Syria” and at the same time “threatening Russia, Syria, and Iran, with military force if they dare attack these terrorists.” Gabbard added:
“This is a betrayal of the American people, especially the victims of Al Qaeda’s attack on 9/11 and their families, first responders, and my brothers and sisters in uniform who have been killed or wounded in action and their families. For the President, who is Commander in Chief, to act as the protective big brother of al-Qaeda and other jihadists must be condemned by every Member of Congress.”
Gabbard continues to knock the Trump administration out by saying that Trump in particular got great accolades from the war machine and much of the Zionist media because he has shown to be a war president, despite the fact that he was proposing something different throughout his political campaign. Gabbard:
“Trump remembers very well that the only times he has been praised almost universally by the mainstream media, Republicans, and Democrats, was when he has engaged in aggressive military actions. Brian Williams, Fareed Zakaria and others could hardly contain their delight.
“CNN’s Fareed Zakaria said, ‘Donald Trump became president of the United States’ the moment the bombs started dropping. MSNBC’s Brian Williams praised the launching of US missiles, saying, ‘I am guided by the beauty of our weapons.” The Washington Post’s David Ignatius said that he thought that by taking this action, Trump “restored the credibility of American power.’”
Here Gabbard is essentially deconstructing the Republican/Democrat matrix, which always work in Israel’s favor. Gabbard again sweeps the Trump administration by saying:
“Right now, President Trump’s approval ratings are dropping, and he craves positive reinforcement. He and his team are making a political calculation and looking for any excuse or opportunity to launch another military attack, so that Trump can again be glorified for dropping bombs.
“Others who would gain the most are Al Qaeda and all the terrorist organizations who are wanting to keep alive the regime-change war against Assad. Their war to overthrow Assad is about to end. They’re finally facing defeat. A US attack that significantly weakens the Syrian military and would be a gift to these terrorist groups who want to overthrow the government and set up a Sunni Extremist theocracy in Damascus. Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Qatar would be the beneficiaries. The military-industrial complex and others who profit from the continuation of these regime-change wars will benefit.
“Who would suffer the most? The Syrian people, who are pleading to be left alone so they can try to rebuild their country. When I visited Syria, people shared their desperation with me, asking me to share their message with the American people: ‘We’re not begging for your money or your help.
“We are simply begging you to stop supporting the terrorists who are destroying our country. Please let us live in peace!’ A US attack will increase the likelihood of more US troop casualties, injuries, and suffering, and billions more dollars of taxpayer money wasted, that could instead be used to improve the lives of the American people.”
Preach it, sister!
Gabbard was just getting warmed up. She’s got more devastating things to say:
“I believe it would strike most Americans as absolutely insane that the president of the United States, his vice president, UN ambassador, secretary of state, and the mainstream media describe the very terrorist entities that were responsible for the attack on 9/11 as ‘rebels.’ Since we know that they know Al Qaeda is the primary force in control of Idlib, we can only conclude that they no longer consider Al Qaeda to be a terrorist organization or the enemy.
“General Joseph Dunford, as well as the UN, have confirmed that Idlib is controlled by 20,000 to 30,000 Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups. Brett McGurk, the administration’s special envoy to counter ISIS, said that, ‘Idlib is Al Qaeda’s largest safe haven since 9/11.’ So there is no ambiguity about the situation: The United States is acting as the big brother and protector of Al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations in Syria.”
Gabbard is not the type of politician who sits behind her desk and tells people what to do and what to think. She went to Syria to do a thorough investigation on the conflict. What did she find? She said:
“There is no doubt that if the United States and its allies are successful in their war to topple Assad, the most powerful forces on the ground (Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups) would take over, and religious minorities or anyone who disagreed with Al Qaeda’s theology/ideology would be targeted. When I visited Syria, I met with Christian leaders in Aleppo who took me to a few of their historic churches that had been targeted and bombed to rubble by terrorist groups like Al Qaeda and ISIS who adhere to the extreme Wahhabi Salafi ideology, propagated by Saudi Arabia around the world, believing that unless you adhere to their extremist exclusivist ideology, then you must be killed or enslaved.
“Just last week, President Trump and Vice President Pence delivered solemn speeches about the attacks on 9/11, honoring the victims of Al Qaeda’s attack on our country. Yet they continue to protect Al Qaeda and other terrorist forces in Syria, and have threatened ‘dire consequences’ and an illegal war against Russia, Syria, and Iran if they dare attack these terrorists—potentially putting our country on a path towards World War III.
“The Trump administration’s continued protection of Al Qaeda is a betrayal of the American people, especially the victims of 9/11, first-responders, my brothers and sisters in uniform who have been killed or wounded in action, and their families. It’s a betrayal of the American people who have had trillions of dollars taken from their wallets, ostensibly to defeat the terrorists who attacked us on 9/11, only to find Al Qaeda is stronger today than ever before.
“This is not a partisan issue. Every American—Democrat, Republican, independent—must condemn this betrayal by our commander in chief. This regime-change war in Syria and US alliance with Al Qaeda and other terrorists must end now.”
Gabbard is certainly a true American hero, a true fighter, and a true sister. She stands for the American people. She stands for the decent people in the Middle East, and she fights against terrorists both at home and abroad. She is an Iraq war veteran, so she knows what she is talking about. Gabbard again says:
“Based on our country’s continued counterproductive regime-change war policies, it is clear that leaders on both sides of the aisle have not learned the painful lessons of decades of interventionist regime-change wars, most recently in Iraq, Libya, and now Syria.
“The result has been costly for the American people, in human lives and taxpayer dollars, and devastating for the people of these countries, where countless lives have been lost, humanitarian crises created, with refugees’ being forced from their homes, and the utter destruction of their way of life….
“ short, we have spent trillions of taxpayer dollars and thousands of American lives in order to help those we consider to be our enemies or adversaries. Who needs enemies when we have leaders like this?”
Cheers to Tulsi Gabbard.
