  • We're Listening to the Wrong Voices on Syria {Why Tulsi Gabbard is silenced}

    Once upon a time, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard traveled to Syria and met with the strongman President Bashar Assad. She considered her willingness to engage all sides of the country’s bloody civil war to be an important step toward peace. For this bold action, she was widely pilloried at the time and considered by some an authoritarian apologist or outright traitor. The claim was repeated again recently by the ever-so-mainstream California Sen. Kamala Harris, a fellow Democratic presidential hopeful. The attacks on Gabbard’s Syria record have been quite regular among Washington insiders, who considered the congresswoman foolish. But was she?...

    Iconoclastic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard did the unforgiveable in the eyes of the hidebound Democratic Party establishment: She knocked down one their favorites, Kamala Harris. ... Now, through the miracle of rule-rigging, the Democratic establishment has maneuvered to exact a price from her: No appearance at the next Democratic debate. No more taking down the next favorite. ... Isn't Julian Castro polling around something like zero? Maybe he's there for affirmative action purposes, alongside his lockstep extremism. Two, Google seems to have already done a number on Gabbard, taking down her paid-for campaign ads during the first debate when Internet viewers'...
  • SCOTUS Is Considering Hearing This 2A Case...And Dem Senators Aren't Happy

    A handful of Democratic Senators signed onto an amicus curiae brief in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. City of New York, defending New York City's blatant attack on the Second Amendment. For years, those who live in NYC could transport handguns, as long as it was to a few select gun ranges in the area. If you were a gun owner in NYC and wanted to take your firearm outside of city limits to a different gun range, that wasn't allowed.The Senators who signed alongside New York City include Sheldon Whitehouse (RI), Mazi Hirono (HI), Richard Blumenthal (CT),...
  • Senate Dems deliver stunning warning to Supreme Court: ‘Heal’ or face restructuring

    Several high-profile Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court in pointed terms this week that it could face a fundamental restructuring if justices do not take steps to "heal" the court in the near future. The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court's conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied. "The Supreme Court...

    Democrats are panicking. In the wake of his many gaffes and shaky debate performances, many view front-runner Joe Biden as unable to go the distance, and unlikely to beat Donald Trump if he succeeds in winning the Democratic nomination. Which of the more than 20 other candidates in the race would be a better bet, they wonder? This is where the angst sets in. Elizabeth Warren is too radical, Bernie Sanders too angry, Beto too absurd, Mayor Pete too young, Cory Booker too annoying, which leaves….Kamala Harris. She’s tough, she can debate, as a woman of color she checks numerous...
  • Tulsi Gabbard Calls Kamala Harris a Drug Warrior and Dirty Prosecutor. She's Right.

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D–Calif.) "put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana," said Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D–Hawaii) during Wednesday night's Democratic presidential debate. In its promotional framing and question, CNN pushed hard for another showdown between Harris and former vice president Joe Biden. But the more authentic and substantial spat so far came between Harris and Gabbard. Responding to Biden, Harris said she was proud of the work she did as attorney general of California, positioning her efforts as a matter of cleaning up policies...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), a presidential candidate, said in an interview broadcast Sunday that Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election made clear that race is the “Achilles heel” of the U.S. “[T]hey decide to attack what is the strongest pillar of a democracy, which is free and open elections … And they tried out a bunch of different things. And you know what caught heat? The issue of race. So Russia exposed America's Achilles heel,” Harris said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “And all of a sudden then, guess what? For those who want to marginalize the conversation about...

    The bodies in El Paso were barely cold when Beto O’Rourke started blaming President Trump. “He is a racist, and he stokes racism in this country . . . We have a president with white nationalist views in the United States today,” the failing Democratic presidential candidate told CNN all Saturday night and Sunday. He likened Trump’s “anti-immigrant rhetoric” to something out of the Third Reich. “He is an open, avowed racist and is encouraging more racism in this country and this is incredibly dangerous . . . “Let’s connect the dots here on . . . who is responsible...

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) took shots at Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and her prosecutorial record during Wednesday night's Democratic Debate."Senator Harris says she's proud of her record as a prosecutor and she'll be a prosecutor as president. But I'm deeply concerned about this record. There are too many examples to cite but she put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana," Gabbard said. "She blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row until the courts forced her to do so. She...

    Let me toss an idea at you and, if you don’t like it, you can give it right back: The Harris/Gabbard debate exchange on Wednesday is to 2020 what the Rubio/Christie debate exchange was to 2016. In both cases a longshot candidate torpedoed a promising top-tier candidate with real coalition-building potential, paving the way for the frontrunner to secure the nomination.Nah, doesn’t quite work, I think. For one thing, it’s way too early still. Christie blew up Rubio on the eve of the New Hampshire primary, when the stakes were as high as could be, whereas right now we’re...

    RUSH: We’re gonna be having a little bit more exploration today on Tulsi Gabbard versus Kamala Harris. But just a little teaser here. The state of California has begun to hide the official record of Kamala Harris as attorney general so people cannot go look it up and find out that Tulsi Gabbard is right. Now, folks, these are people that have been turning over every stone and rock looking for mythical information that Trump cheated with Russia. Now the same people demanding all of this transparency are hiding and covering up the official record of Kamala Harris because, despite...

    Team Harris will say (and has said) that there was no accusation of racism aimed at Biden at the last debate, that in fact Harris began her spiel about busing by saying to him specifically, “I do not believe you are a racist.” But that’s nonsense. That was Harris’s sly way of having her cake and eating it too, simultaneously avoiding calling Biden a racist while suggesting that the matter is in enough doubt that one might rightly hold an opinion on either side of it. It’s a debate, see, and what was suddenly being debated was whether the...

    Sen. Kamala Harris referred to herself as a “top-tier candidate” and belittled Rep. Tulsi Gabbard’s poll numbers during an interview after Wednesday’s Democratic presidential debate. “[T]his is going to sound immodest, but I’m obviously a top-tier candidate, and so I did expect that I would be on the stage and take hits tonight, because there are a lot of people that are trying to make the stage for the next debate,” Harris said in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper shortly after the debate. “Especially when some people are at zero or 1%, or whatever she might be at.

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA)’s campaign press secretary suggested Russia was behind Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) after she landed an effective blow on Harris’ record as a prosecutor during the Democrat debates on Wednesday night. Her press secretary, Ian Sams, tweeted shortly after the attack an NBC News article from February 2019 claiming the “Russian propaganda machine” was promoting Gabbard: “Reporters writing their stories with eyes on the modern-day assignment desk of Twitter, read this: ‘The Russian propaganda machine that tried to influence the 2016 election is now promoting the presidential aspirations of a controversial Hawaii Democrat,'” he tweeted. He later...

    Via the Free Beacon, did I tell you the Harris/Gabbard war was coming or did I tell you? “Gabbard might be an attack dog for Biden onstage tonight,” I wrote last night, “and if she is, the theories of why she’s allied herself with him will be flying tomorrow.” Anyone want to chip in with a theory for why Tulsi is on a seek-and-destroy mission against Harris?It can’t be that she’s aiming to be Grandpa Joe’s VP. She’s too young and too far out of sync with Biden on foreign policy. He’s not going to spend his campaign hearing...

    Gabbard attacked Harris for having locked up thousands of people for mere marijuana possession and laughing about it when asked whether she had smoked pot herself. The congresswoman piled onto Harris, adding on a reference to her office’s shameful move to keep people locked up to preserve "cheap labor for the state of California." This is all true, and here are the receipts. But Gabbard didn’t stop there.

    A coalition of women’s groups is attacking CNN for failing to select a single woman of color to moderate the Democratic debates. “We have the most diverse pool of presidential candidates in our country’s history including the third black woman to seek the Democratic nomination, yet the debate stage has left out an important voice at the moderator’s table,” said Glynda C. Carr, president of Higher Heights for America, an organization dedicated to putting black women in positions of political power. California Sen. Kamala Harris follows black woman predecessors Shirley Chisholm — who was the first woman of color to...
