  • How Obama & McCain Armed Terrorists in Syria

    The American Conservative ^ | June 22, 2017 | Gareth Porter
    Three-term Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, a member of both the Armed Services and Foreign Affairs committees, has proposed legislation that would prohibit any U.S. assistance to terrorist organizations in Syria as well as to any organization working directly with them. Equally important, it would prohibit U.S. military sales and other forms of military cooperation with other countries that provide arms or financing to those terrorists and their collaborators. Gabbard’s “Stop Arming Terrorists Act” challenges for the first time in Congress a U.S. policy toward the conflict in the Syrian civil war that should have set off alarm bells long...

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a Hawaii Democrat, says she made a secret, four-day trip to Syria -- meeting with ordinary people and even President Bashar al-Assad -- because the suffering of the Syrian people "has been weighing heavily on my heart." "I wanted to see if there was in some small way, a way that I could express the love and the aloha and the care that the American people have for the people of Syria, and to see firsthand what was happening there, to see that situation there," Gabbard told CNN's "The Lead" with Jake Tapper on Wednesday.

    Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, a Democratic Representative from Hawaii, recently visited Syria in secret for four days and returned to the U.S. with a message based on what she saw. “[The Syrian people] expressed happiness and joy at seeing an American walking through their streets. But they also asked why the U.S. and its allies are providing support and arms to terrorist groups like al-Nusra, al-Qaida or al-Sham, ISIS who are on the ground there, raping, kidnapping, torturing and killing the Syrian people.”

    ZeroHedge.com ^ | December 14, 2016 | Submitted by Darius Shahtahmasebi via TheAntiMedia.org,
    Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard has broken free of the corporate media’s narrative by accusing the United States of funding and arming terror groups al-Qaeda and ISIS. “If you or I gave money, weapons or support to al-Qaeda or ISIS, we would be thrown in jail,” Gabbard tweeted on Saturday. Most importantly, however, is her introduction of the “Stop Arming Terrorists Act,” which she presented last Thursday. In her presentation of the bill, Gabbard cited prominent publications such as the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal to show that the rebels the U.S. is supporting in Syria are aligned...

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) on Thursday dismissed as "offensive" the criticism that President-elect Donald Trump is considering too many retired generals for Cabinet positions. The Democratic lawmaker, who last month raised eyebrows by meeting with Trump in his New York tower, said that the veterans are more than capable of serving in high government positions and their military experience should not disqualify them from the job. "I don't share [critics'] concerns. In fact, as a veteran ... I find it pretty offensive for people to outright discriminate against veterans," Gabbard said in an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper. "Here you...

    Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a high-profile Bernie Sanders supporter during the Democratic primaries, is “under serious consideration” for various Cabinet positions in President-elect Donald Trump's administration, according to a senior official on the transition team. According to the official, the 35-year-old Hawaii congresswoman is being looked as a candidate for secretary of state, secretary of defense or United Nations ambassador. If selected, Gabbard will be the first woman as well as the youngest pick for Trump's Cabinet. She met with him this morning in his New York City offices at Trump Tower. The Trump transition source said that their sit-down...

    Published on Oct 21, 2015 Speaking with Wolf Blitzer on CNN, Tulsi explains why the US allying with Islamist extremists to overthrow Syrian President Assad is an illegal, counterproductive war that will cause even more human misery in the region and help ISIS and other Islamist extremists take over all of Syria. Instead of once again being distracted by trying to get rid of a secular dictator, Tulsi explains, the US must stay out of counter productive wars and focus on defeating the Islamist extremists who have declared war on America.

    WASHINGTON - Tulsi Gabbard is willing to go out on a limb. The Democratic U.S. congresswoman from Hawaii was one of the first Democrats to support Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, and now she is one of the first Democrats to meet with President-elect Donald Trump. Gabbard met with Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence on Monday morning, but Trump spokesman Jason Miller said it was “premature” to discuss Gabbard’s potential role in the Trump administration.

    The Democratic presidential primary process may be ending next Tuesday, but the fight among Bernie Sanders supporters to rid the party of superdelegates and install new leadership at the Democratic National Committee is not. Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard encouraged her followers on Saturday to sign a petition ending the Democratic Party’s use of superdelegates. “Whether you are a Bernie Sanders supporter or a Hillary Clinton supporter, we should all agree that unelected party officials and lobbyists should not have a say in who the presidential nominee of our party is,” she wrote in a Facebook post. “That should be left...

That means, she said, analyzing "how and when we use our military power — and just as importantly, when we don't use that military power."

    President Obama is sending an “expeditionary force” of U.S. military special operators to carry out raids against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, a move that expands on their decision to send about 50 special operators to Syria to coordinate air strikes. “In full coordination with the Government of Iraq, we’re deploying a specialized expeditionary targeting force to assist Iraqi and Kurdish Peshmerga forces and put even more pressure on [ISIS],” Defense Secretary Ash Carter told the House Armed Services Committee in announcing the new deployment on Tuesday. Carter got a hint of just how difficult it may be to sell...

    WASHINGTON -- Between the chilly temperatures and the pace of the push-ups, there was plenty to complain about after eight lawmakers straggled into the park behind the Longworth House Office Building for their regular 6:30 a.m. workout. While the others in the group griped and groaned on a recent Tuesday, Representative Tulsi Gabbard, 34, her Hindu prayer beads wrapped around a wrist for her daily yoga meditation, said little. "Tulsi, you hearing a lot of whining?" asked Representative Markwayne Mullin, a burly Oklahoma Republican and former professional mixed martial arts fighter who leads the workouts, mocking the complaints of her...

    Last month, US Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard went on CNN and laid bare Washington’s Syria strategy. In a remarkably candid interview with Wolf Blitzer, Gabbard calls Washington’s effort to oust Assad "counterproductive” and “illegal" before taking it a step further and accusing the CIA of arming the very same terrorists who The White House insists are "sworn enemies." In short, Gabbard all but tells the American public that the government is lying to them and may end up inadvertently starting "World War III."

    In this very fascinating interview with U.S. House of Representatives Tulsi Gabbard, a Democrat representing Hawaii, she admits something that many conservatives have suspected for a long time. Watch below (starting at the 1:45 mark) Tulsi Gabbard is a top Democrat in the Democratic National Committee but she is one of the few honest Democrats who has actually criticized Obama on his foreign policy failures. But, it must be noted that she says he's essentially working hand in hand with Islamist extremists, but she's not saying that he's actually directly working with them. She admits that his foreign policy is...

    One point we’ve been particularly keen on driving home since the beginning of Russian airstrikes in Syria is that The Kremlin’s move to step in on behalf of Bashar al-Assad along with Vladimir Putin’s open “invitation” to Washington with regard to joining forces in the fight against terrorism effectively let the cat out of the proverbial bag. That is, it simply wasn’t possible for the US to explain why the Pentagon refused to partner with the Russians without admitting that i) the government views Assad, Russia, and Iran as a greater threat than ISIS, and ii) Washington and its regional...

    Democratic National Committee vice chairwoman Tulsi Gabbard said she has been disinvited from the Tuesday Democratic presidential debate after comments she made on MSNBC calling for more debates, The New York Times reports. While Gabbard said she was disinvited, an anonymous source close to the DNC told The New York Times that Gabbard was not disinvited, but was told to reconsider going because she could be a distraction. Gabbard disputes the claim that she would be a distraction to the debate. "It's very dangerous when we have people in positions of leadership who use their power to try to quiet...
