    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...

    When pressed by moderator Chuck Todd about previous statements she's made about a president needing a "military mindset," Gabbard said Sanders has such a mindset. 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...

    She was Hawaii's golden girl after winning a seat in Congress with support from top liberal groups, but now that Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has been critical of President Obama, her political reputation in the bluest of blue states is taking a hit. That isn’t stopping the twice-deployed 33-year-old Army veteran from continuing to challenge the president, her home state's favorite son, over his refusal to identify terror groups like the Islamic State as driven by "radical Islam.” “Every soldier knows this simple fact: If you don't know your enemy, you will not be able to defeat him,” Gabbard told...

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), a member of the House Armed Services Committee, said Friday that Islamic extremists were at war with the United States, and urged the Obama administration to adopt the same view. "I'm upset that the president and the White House...is not actually saying this is a war that the Islamic extremists are posing against the United States and against the West," she said during an appearance on CNN’s “The Situation Room” Friday. In the same interview, Gabbard referred to the threat posed by “this radical Islamic extremist agenda." The White House has tried to avoid using the...

    Press Release - Washington, DC – Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) today released the following statement on the news that the Department of Defense will lift the ban on women serving in ground combat roles: “As a twice-deployed combat veteran, I have a firsthand appreciation and understanding of the contributions women in uniform make every single day, all around the world. I have had the honor of serving with incredibly talented female soldiers who, if given the opportunity, would serve as great assets in our ground combat units. It is crucial that we shed light on the great value and opportunities...

    Washington - With both the Democratic and Republican parties out to woo the three million strong Indian-American community with its growing political clout, three of them have been given prime spots at the two parties' presidential conventions. While California's Indian-American Attorney General Kamala Harris has won a prime speaking role at the Democratic National Convention in North Carolina next month, Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal and South Carolina governor Nikki Haley would be among the "headliners" at the Republican National Convention at Tampa Florida next week. Apart from a speaking slot at the Democratic convention that would endorse President Barack Obama's...
