    Tulsi Gabbard's Campaign Is Being Boosted by Putin Apologists, The Daily Beast

    Russiagate 2.0. The MSM isn't wasting any time with this woman. Notice what the Daily Beast suggests is treasonous Russian sympathizing. Bare in mind that Tulsi is a veteran who served to tours in Iraq:
    ^^
    This is considered treasonous in this McCarthyist political environment.

    If you embrace this way of thinking, you are a Far Right totalitarian. Period. This is fascism. And just plain sick.

    Yeah I heard her being told David Duke supports her as well - whether true or not. A very impressive lady who clearly is not following the demands of the main donors of both Republican and Democratic Parties. Someone who could bring a breath of fresh air to both the US and the world - though I must say listening to her talk last night and thinking of the disappointment of Obama, I did wonder if she would change if elected. She does not fit in with the status quo of being a bully to the world in perpetual war but just because that is what the main donors to both American Parties are demanding does not make her a stooge of anyone. Far from it. That being said it would not surprise me if a great deal of the world would like someone of her views elected. Then we could stop this perpetual regime change and killing insanity and return to the rule of law and get on with solving the enormous problems the world is suffering, not least climate emergency before it is too late.

    Gabbard is no more pro Russian than the President. Wait a moment!

    This is the established Democrats going after Democratic Socialists. It's going to be a blood bath for the Democratic party.

    The democrat media complex trying to affect the democrat primary. Biden is the preferred choice so expect to see more trashing of the other candidates.

    Be specifics. Those are just names or titles to 90% of the Board.

    One of these Democrats is funded by the healthcare cartel and opposes Medicare-For-All. The other takes no corporate money and is signed on to Medicare-For-All.

    No difference at all. What they call democratic socialism isn't socialism at all. It is a high level of social spending by government. I believe most democrats support that.

    Both parties subsidize Big Oil, agribusiness, High Tec industries, Amazon, Wal-Mart, and other corporations. The production of Cell phones, tablets, etc were all funded by US taxpayers. The costs and risks in the economy are socialized and the profits privatized. There is no free market here or internationally.

    Horhey writes, "The costs and risks in the economy are socialized and the profits privatized."

    Yes, that is how a social democracy setting policy for capitalism works.

    The issue is corporate welfare in terms of taxation rates.

    This makes no sense. Perhaps you could explain it further.

    Listen to Alexandria Ortiz-Casio if you don't know the difference. There is a really good documentary out on her campaign against an encumbent Democrat in her district. She ripped him a new one in a debate.

    She's a FAUXgressive. A careerist and a narcissist. On the cover of magazines and beloved by the commercial media. Beware controlled opposition.

    Yes, she's idiotic enough to be the real deal.

    No one fake could be that stupid.

    Just because Gabbard was against intervening in the Syrian civil war, she gets called a “Putin apologist”.

    I’m conservative, and I was against it from Day One. It was one of the most stunningly stupid things the Obama/Clinton administration ever did.

    I do understand, but you don't, and I wanted you to show that you did not. Thanks.

    Let me help you better understand what the DNC is starting to face.

    Justice Democrats is working to elect a mission-driven caucus in Congress that will fight for solutions that match the scale of our many crises: skyrocketing inequality, catastrophic climate change, deepening structural racism as the country becomes more diverse, and the corporate takeover of our democracy.

    We need a Democratic Party that fights for its voters, not just its corporate donors. That’s why we helped elect leaders like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Congress. We need leadership in the Democratic Party that will represent and fight for our communities.
