You can actually hear the attitudes echoing down the corridors of the Democratic Party, which basically say: “Tulsi Gabbard is not one of us.” But one can safely say that the Democratic Party is currently imploding because presidential candidates like Kamala Harris, senators like Richard Blumenthal, and others like Hillary Clinton have chosen to make Tulsi Gabbard their intended target.

Why? The Russians, they say, are grooming her; she is a friend of President Assad; she doesn’t have a consistent worldview; and on and on it goes. Blumenthal declared:

“The question is whether she seriously hopes to be the nominee or if she has another agenda … her attacks on other candidates and her positions on issues seem very personal, not so much about a set of policies or worldview. Bernie Sanders has a coherent set of principles. Elizabeth Warren’s the same. I don’t perceive a fixed set of principles or worldview on her part.”[1]

Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut concurred, saying that “It’s a little hard to figure out what itch she’s trying to scratch in the Democratic Party right now.”[2] Politico reported:

“The Hawaii congresswoman’s presence on the debate stage is becoming a headache for the party as she uses the platform to appeal to isolationists, dissatisfied liberals and even conservatives…. Gabbard met with Syrian President Bashar Assad in 2017 and has repeatedly attacked Clinton’s foreign policy views, grating on Democrats who’ve broadly supported the center-left international platform of Democrats in recent decades.”[3]

Well, that’s part of the problem, isn’t it? What these people end up saying is that if you are a presidential candidate, you have to say that Assad is a terrorist and has killed his own people. You have to say that Assad has deliberately used chemical weapons on his own people. You have to say that Assad is the new axis of evil that must be destroyed by all means. You have to follow the Israeli narrative, which essentially says that Assad must go. In that sense, you have to prefer terrorist cells in Syria over the Assad government, which is exactly what Israeli ambassador Michael Oren has perpetuated.

As Oren put it back in 2013, “The initial message about the Syrian issue was that we always wanted [President] Bashar Assad to go, we always preferred the bad guys who weren’t backed by Iran to the bad guys who were backed by Iran.”[4] The million-dollar question is simply this: who were the bad guys?

Simple: Al-Nusra, Jihadists, and other terrorist organs. If you doubt this, then listen to the Jerusalem Post: “This was the case, he said, even if the other ‘bad guys’ were affiliated to al-Qaida.”[5] Oren continued:

“We understand that they are pretty bad guys. Still, the greatest danger to Israel is by the strategic arc that extends from Tehran, to Damascus to Beirut. And we saw the Assad regime as the keystone in that arc. That is a position we had well before the outbreak of hostilities in Syria. With the outbreak of hostilities we continued to want Assad to go.”[6]

The Israeli regime has made it very clear that they prefer ISIS over Iran. As the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported in 2015, “Netanyahu Owes a Hearty Thanks to ISIS.”[7] We also know that Israel has been working with the so-called Syrian rebels and other terrorist cells for years.[8] In fact, they have admitted openly that they have worked with al-Qaeda. Their modus operandi is to work with any terrorist organization that seeks to overthrow the Assad government in Syria. And they have no interest in seeking peace at all.

According to Seymour M. Hersh, Assad made several attempts to reach a peaceful resolution with both the United States and Israel, but Israel resolutely refused to negotiate. “They said, ‘Assad is finished. He’s close to the end.’”[9] Hersh declared that Assad was fighting ISIS; he wanted the United States to support him, but Israel wanted nothing to do with the generous offer precisely because ISIS and Israel, as we have argued numerous times, are concentric circles.

This is the type of diabolical activity and covert operation much of the Democratic Party is supporting! And this is one reason why they are attacking Gabbard. She doesn’t support the United States destroying Syria under the crazy ideology of “democracy” and “freedom.”

Unlike many presidential candidates, Gabbard is US veteran, and she saw what happened to her veteran brothers and sisters when the United States decided to blow Iraq up in flame. Like the average American, she is sick and tired of regime change in the Middle East. But since presidential candidates have already sold their souls to the New World Order ideology in the Middle East and elsewhere, they have to attack Gabbard because she is challenging the very principle which they are perpetuating.

Should people be concerned about Gabbard? Should we ask her challenging and serious questions? Of course. But that is not what the Democratic Party is currently doing. They are trying to destroy the only person who might be able to challenge Trump next year.

We should all give Bernie Sanders some credit for not following Hillary Clinton in popularizing the stupid claim that Gabbard is essentially a Russian agent. “Tulsi Gabbard has put her life on the line to defend this country. People can disagree on issues, but it is outrageous for anyone to suggest that Tulsi is a foreign asset,” said Sanders.[10]

  1. Yet another article proving Jonas is a crackhead. Tulsi might not be a Russian agent but she most definitely is an Indian agent. Specifically, the Hindutva brigade that controls india & is best buddies w/ the jewish zionists Jonas hates so much. Go figure. Just more proof that VT is not an alternative to the gutter journalism of MSM.

  2. This is another great article by Jonas about an excellent candidate Tulsi Gabbard. However I think she needs to distinguish herself more to achieve her goals. Here is a suggestion: Our two time president Barrack Obama had ties to her home State of Hawaii although she was born in
    American Samoa. Many details of Obama’s life are still a carefully guarded secret aided by a number of very corrupt officials in Hawaii; some may now be deceased. By the way how much money is Obama worth today? Some estimates run as high as $70 million. He has done well hasn’t he? He successfully hid many details of his life; like college grades and courses and graduation records. The birth certificate scam was never really resolved at all. He had SS numbers in Connecticut the Sandy Hook Scam State. In short he was a master of obfuscation. Tulsi could show her powers and skills to reveal some truths about Obama as a contribution to the public records. She could begin in Hawaii where much of the lying and cheating about Obama began. I am not against Obama. But all this disclosed just how corrupt her home State was and is today. I think such an investigation by her would make her a real super star who could and might be elected President. She could write a great book on her discoveries. I bet she could conceive a way to induce schools Obama allegedly graduated from to reveal his records at last.
    After all he was a public figure like Trump; why all the secrecy if not to hide lies?

  3. “They are trying to destroy the only person who might be able to challenge Trump next year.”
    I think that is her mission. Tulsi looks to me to be a patriotic looking version of Obama. Obama did a spectacular job of fooling the country, IMHO.
    “We should all give Bernie Sanders some credit for not following Hillary Clinton in popularizing the stupid claim that Gabbard is essentially a Russian agent.”
    Shows that Sanders has some common sense and is willing to express it publicly in a country where common sense seems to be in short supply. I mean, Trump a Russian agent ??? Give me a break 😉

  4. Of all of the dozens of political parties, some with awesome candidates, we seem to be stuck on the two that have given us enduring harm. Sending demented psychopaths to the White House only speeds up America’s death spiral. Congress should be filled with reps diverse points of view, not two clubs who represent their AIPAC check,

  5. cfr shill telling us what we already know. RT i think backs her because she could be a very dangerous and useful pawn for the empire so they want to ruin her by purposefully promoting her via the kremlin media. part hypothesis but it lines up. honestly, if she got elected, and i mean honestly, wtf is she going to do? lets get a governor that will engage in a strong man succession or gangster sheriffs, both near impossible to get votes for now, if we still want to talk about electoral politics

  6. “Breathtaking: Solving Nuclear 9/11” at VeteransToday(.)com > finally, WTC vaporized declassified, not boxcutters, not jet fuel, not thermite, not remote directed energy weapons > good old fashioned mininukes that used the WTC buildings as gamma absorbers > “Exposing NIST Jenga Game”

  7. If anyone steps up to lead us away from the total control of the deep state they will be shunned by the MSM and possibly targeted for elimination. What is interesting is what Tulsi’s detractors are saying. The real power behind them is mute and in control.
