Tulsi Gabbard, the intrepid congresswoman and Iraq war veteran who has over the years given the Neocons and war machine heart attacks, is running for president in 2020. “I have decided to run and will be making a formal announcement within the next week,” she told CNN.

Obviously this is not a comfortable position for the Deep State and the Neocons, the people who have spent trillions upon trillions of tax dollars in the Middle East destroying lives and livelihood. Why? Gabbard tells us exactly:

“There are a lot of reasons for me to make this decision. There are a lot of challenges that are facing the American people that I’m concerned about and that I want to help solve. There is one main issue that is central to the rest, and that is the issue of war and peace. I look forward to being able to get into this and to talk about it in depth when we make our announcement.”

Gabbard is not comparable to Kamala Harris, the woman who has been a puppet of Benjamin Netanyahu for years. Harris declared back in 2017:

“Let me be clear about what I believe. I stand with Israel because of our shared values which are so fundamental to the founding of both our nations. I believe the bonds between the United States and Israel are unbreakable, and we can never let anyone drive a wedge between us.

“And I believe Israel should never be a partisan issue, and as long as I’m a United States senator, I will do everything in my power to ensure broad and bipartisan support for Israel’s security and right to self-defense.”[1]

What about the poor Palestinians, Mrs. Harris? Do they have the right to self-defense? What if your home, your precious and lovely children, your neighbor, and the country you love have been literally obliterated by a racist and terrorist state? Do you have a moral right to fight back?

In any event, Harris is an Israeli shill, and I have no confidence in her whatsoever. Gabbard’s track record, however, indicates that she is not buying the Israeli narrative. She stood with Assad when it was politically incorrect to do so. She told Trump point-blankly that he needed to stop being “Saudi Arabia’s bitch.” It can easily be argued that Gabbard has been fighting for decent Americans for many years.

Gabbard has obviously seen the disastrous effects of the war in Iraq, which produced sodomy at Abu Ghraib. She argued that by resisting “US wars of intervention,” she and other representatives are “giving voice to millions of Americans… including my fellow veterans, who desperately want to end our country’s illegal, counterproductive war…”[2] Gabbard again declared:

“Too often we have found, throughout our country’s history, we have people in positions of power who make offhanded comments about sending a few thousand troops here, fifty thousand there, a hundred thousand there, intervening militarily here, or starting a war there—without seeming to understand or appreciate the cost of war. If our troops are sent to fight a war, it must be the last option. Not the first.”[3]


Gabbard once told talking head Donald Trump specifically to ignore “drumbeats of war that neocons have been beating.” By specifically calling out the Neocons, Gabbard was inexorably attacking the Khazarian Mafia, which is essentially an ideological movement.[4]

Gabbard was also indirectly attacking the Israeli regime, which arguably uses the Pentagon as a sort of military headquarter.[5] No wonder that the Neocons themselves conspired against Gabbard.[6] Flaming Neocon Bill Kristol responded to Gabbard’s antiwar position by saying that people like her “make a wasteland, and they call it peace.”

Gabbard has been grabbing the Neocons and ethnic cleansers in the Middle East by the balls for years. She cut them to piece by saying:

For decades, Congress has ceded its Constitutional responsibility of deciding whether or not to declare war, to the President. As a result, we have found ourselves in a state of perpetual war, without a declaration of war by Congress and without input from the American people.

“Since 9/11 alone, our country has spent trillions of dollars on interventionist regime change wars, costing the lives of many Americans, taking a toll on our veterans, and causing people in our communities to struggle and suffer due to a lack of resources.

“Our bipartisan resolution aims to end presidential wars, and hold Congress accountable so it does its job in making the serious and costly decision about whether or not to send our nation’s sons and daughters to war…

“Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution gives Congress the exclusive authority to declare war. But the last time Congress officially declared war was December 8th, 1941 – the day the US entered World War II.

“Ever since, Congress has failed to uphold their constitutional responsibility and have instead ceded power to the President. So, we remain in a state of perpetual war, led by presidents in both parties at great cost to the American people with no declaration of war by Congress and no input from the American people.

“The direct and indirect costs of these presidential wars are astounding. They take a toll on our troops, our veterans, and on the American people.

“Since 9/11 alone, we’ve spent trillions of dollars on regime-change wars and nation-building while people in our communities suffer and struggle because of a lack of resources here at home, what to mention the costs borne by our troops, those who pay the ultimate price, as well as those who come home with wounds that are visible and invisible. The American people deserve accountability.”

When Trump, the Israeli regime, the war machine, and the Deep State were universally shouting and screaming for an invasion of Syria, Gabbard was on the front line slicing those people to pieces. She said then:

“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.”

Cheers, sister! But the courageous woman was just getting started. She moved on to do a surgical strike on both the Zionist media and the political prostitutes in Washington this way:

“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.”

Whatever you may say about Gabbard, she is, as Jim W. Dean once put it, “the real deal.” She specifically went to Syria to investigate the terrorist acts of the people America was supporting. She concluded:

“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.”

Let us hope that Gabbard doesn’t get corrupted by the puppeteers in Washington and con men like Sheldon Adelson. But so far she is the best presidential candidate for 2020. I support her.

  1. Ian, we can only hope that someone will do the right thing, as JFK did. It hasn’t happened; well maybe a little bit with Jimmy Carter. But certainly taking the world to a higher level; the Camelot we so deserve. Not yet. Yet hope springs eternal, does it not. I wont say pray; but I stretch for a better word. Perhaps you have one my friend. A better word that is.

  2. This hop aboard “Tulsi Tain” reminds me of,

    Warren Train
    Sanders Train
    Rand Paul Train
    Trey Gowdy Train

    Trains to nowhere ever since The House was owned by the Bank. But they sure can sweet talk.

  3. she is a complete fraud who would do israels bidding while talking a good game.
    she will never get the nomination…and doesn’t deserve it.
    ironic how she uses her military service to win an election then..after 4 years of no legislative achievement ….decides she is capable of being POTUS…all because she was in the military…lol…GIVE ME A BREAK.

    NOTICE I DIDN’T BRING UP HER HOMOPHOBIC BELIEFS.

    • Those are some serious accusations JadeZ, do you have any proof to back them up? Or are you just like Ian G? Throw shit against the wall and see what sticks?

    • Excuse me, but I did not throw any shit anywhere. What I did was list some of the points of concern I have that perhaps indicate that Tulsi is not the beacon of hope that some think she is. I don’t know what Tulsi is yet, what I do know is that she hasn’t proven to be one thing or another, yes, she has done some good things, like visiting Assad, and has said some promising things, but words are cheap and visits to Assad are counterbalanced by things like her relationships with some prominent Israeli supporting traitorous types like Miriam Adelson. It is simply prudent to remember Lenin’s maxim that ‘the best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves’ and if we apply that maxim to Tulsi, there are some worrying signs that she may be too close to the opposition, which raises suspicions that she is controlled by that opposition.

  4. Ian, she may be a nobody, but her message will make her a somebody. Get on board to knock off the Deep State.

    • I remain unconvinced about her, very unconvinced; sure, she says the right things but I look past the words at the actions and associations and I see things that concern me. For instance, she has cosy relationships with right-wing supporters of Israel who are affiliated with the Republican Party. Also, she is close to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, a truly vile creature who is another Israel supporter and very bad news, he gave her an award in 2016. Gabbard has spoken at a conference of Christians United for Israel – an organisation that strongly opposes Palestinian statehood, CUFI’s leader, Pastor John Hagee, is an outspoken supporter of Trump; and gave a speech at the ceremony marking the transfer of the US. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Then there is Gabbard’s friendship with Sheldon Adelson’s wife, which is a major red flag as Adelson is the devil incarnate when it comes to pro-Israel traitors and was the largest donator to the Trump campaign. So Tulsi has a lot to do to convince me, call me cynical because I am, but cynicism is important whenever you are dealing with politicians with stated ambition.

    • Oh, Ian the Anglophile, asks, while putting his feet in his mouth,”but what has She done?”
      She is a decorated War Veteran and a Congresswoman for two things. May I remind you Ian, that VT is a website for Veterans? Maybe you should be writing for the Daily Mail or something.

    • You’re missing my point, perhaps deliberately. I should have said ‘what has she done SINCE SHE BECAME A POLITICIAN’ which I thought was clear from the context. Why don’t you try debating the points of doubt I raised about her rather than being so pointlessly pedantic?

  5. I have been looking forward to Tulsi’s entry. VT and all Veterans must get behind this courageous, common sense woman. We missed our chance last time out. Time for action.

    • No, JFK was very different, he came from a powerful family that had connections, remember who his father was, a powerful senator with far reaching influence, so JFK was dangerous from day 1. Tulsi is a different kettle of fish and it is far, far too early to make pronouncements about her. Sorry, but that’s the hash reality, not the pie in the sky thinking and hoping some display.

  6. Gabbard is a nobody, she hasn’t done anything yet, probably never will, but the deep state should be scared? Ridiculously wishful thinking by Jonas.

    • I am not alone with this “ridiculously wishful thinking.” Gordon Duff has just published an article saying basically the same thing: https://journal-neo.org/2019/01/14/the-war-against-america-s-only-anti-war-candidate/. We are not supporting Gabbard because she is THE perfect candidate. We are supporting her for multiple reasons. When politicians were out there complaining, she was in the field doing serious investigation in Syria and elsewhere. Granted, no one likes her association with Adelson’s wife and Boteach. And she may become something else in the future, but she is the best candidate we have thus far.

    • It’s far too soon to know if Gabbard is worth supporting, to suggest the deep state is scared of her is definitely wishful thinking. I discussed the matter with Gordon at length, he agrees that there are doubts and that we simply don’t know enough about her various associations as of yet. I have to be careful what I say as there is an ongoing process we can’t make public as of yet, but we are actively investigating more than one avenue.

    • I said the Deep State “should be scared,” not “is scared.” As I already pointed out, just about everyone has the same concerns as you do. But the central point is that she could have joined the Neocon bandwagon and the war machine when they were universally beating the war drum with respect to Syria. Yet her position was clear and to the point, and any rational person would completely agree with her. That’s the issue I was trying to raise in the article. Which “presidential” candidate has done that so far? None.

    • You made a large leap of assumption, based on just one data point, ergo, I considered it wishful thinking. Dig deeper into Tulsi’s background, such as who her father is, his right wing neocon status and track record of homophobia, racism and various other disturbing traits. Look at Tulsi’s cosy relationships with various very shady characters both in the US and abroad. Yes, on a most superficial level she looks to be a good candidate, but scratch the surface and a huge amount of doubt should arise.

  7. The hit pieces are out there already; Google is calling her anti-gay, Gasp! I want a Tulsi for President bumper sticker. Sorry Jill maybe you can be the Vice President.

  8. Just the fact she is running is a positive sign that war as a business, is going to face opposition finally.
    Of course they are already attacking her, for alleged connection with Hindu extremists, and the war mongering media is happy to oblige.
    One of the challenges for any candidate, is surrounding themselves with people who will not become scandals. When they can’t fight issues, they go after affiliations and anything or anyone they can within a campaign. Mainstream media is about to have their hands full, and they better get right..

  9. These are all good points made by Jonas. However she must come out and clearly acknowledge that 9/11/01 was a contrived attack by Israel, aided and abetted by traitors Bush, Cheney and the four star generals who obviously stood down and did not lift a finger to defend this country because they were part of the scam. https://wikispooks.com/wiki/9-11/Israel_did_it This acknowledgement will be most difficult for here since she will be directly criticizing her former superiors. But she must do this to convince me and many others that she fully understands the depth of the con of 9/11/01 to this country and the guilty intent of the traitors who perpetuated it from those in New York to those in the Bush Administration, to those in the Pentagon to those in Israel. The four star general have cowardly remained silent. One can be sure they know all the dirt about 9/11/01.

    • There is no statute of limitations for the crimes of conspiracy to commit treason against the U.S. as did Bush, Cheney, the four star generals, criminals in New York, a federal judge, and criminals in Israel. As long as any of the perps are alive they can and must be brought to justice. Then and only then might the whores in Congress get thrown out by the American People and replaced with others with the guts to stand up to the criminals in Israel who have hi jacked this nation with a five letter obscene word MONEY. Frankly the whores in Congress are also aiding and abetting these other criminals and traitors.

    • There are roughly 1.3 million lawyers in the U.S. Observe the deafening silence of this group regarding the crimes of 9/11/01. The massive swindle, crime, sting, scam, con, fleece, …of 9/11/01 was not planned and carried out by Muslims wandering around the rocks in beachwalkswith cell phones half way around the world as the lying media directed by crooks in Israel would have us believe. They were planned and executed by international traitors and criminals from New York to Bush, Cheney and the Four Star Generals to criminals in Israel period. Every member of this group, aided by whores in Congress, must be arrested and indicted and tried in a court of law for the crime of Treason against the U.S. How about it 1.3 Million lying lawyers in the U.S.? Will the oldest “profession” finally demonstrate some guts and gumption and do its job or will the deafening silence continue forever?
