Is Tulsi Gabbard the Real Threat to President Trump?
by Kerry Patton
She stated that she endorsed Bernie Sanders in the last Presidential election. She stated she wanted to take on the “establishment.” And now, she says she wishes to run for President of the United States. Her name: Tulsi Gabbard.
I have been following Tulsi Gabbard long enough to develop some thoughts which are, of course, opinion. However, they are more than just opinions. These are well-reasoned conclusions drawn after closely examining her records, statements, and background. First and foremost, Tulsi Gabbard is incredibly intelligent. She is capable of outmaneuvering most of those standing before her. She is calculated and when she strikes, she does so with vengeance. Case in point, she became the most googled Democrat after the last debate. This was due, in large part, to her absolutely slaying Kamala Harris on her past record as California’s attorney general.
Tulsi Gabbard is no friend to the Democrat establishment. I believed she previously endorsed Bernie Sanders because she knew the DNC was pushing for Hillary and was aware of how unethical that process had become. I don’t believe she TRULY endorsed Bernie Sanders but rather endorsed anyone willing to take on the “establishment.” That is Tulsi Gabbard. A woman willing to take on the establishment.
How refreshing for America!
President Trump got elected for the very same reasons why Tulsi Gabbard may be the greatest threat against President Trump. He took on the big Republican establishment and now she is willing to do the same within the Democrat party. Many have claimed Gabbard has no chance in hell. Well, remember how few had faith in President Obama when he ran? How many had any faith there would be a President Trump? Both candidates were considered underdogs and most discounted them. The same thing is happening with our latest Presidential candidate who just so happens to be multi-racial, a female, and a combat veteran.
Interestingly, political pundits are playing a game with Tulsi Gabbard. She meets the monetary donations needed for the next election and polls in over 2% on over 23 different polls to date. However, the DNC (they love poltrickery) stands by their concept that, of the 23 polls, only one actually matters. SERIOUSLY? When it comes to Tulsi Gabbard, one of the best tricks Democrats are playing right now includes: “She is an Assad Apologist!”
Interestingly, as a congresswoman, Tulsi Gabbard went on a fact-finding mission along with other congressmembers. They flew into Syria, among other locations, to conduct an assessment of the overall situation. And yes, they even spoke to Bashir Al Assad.
She stated that, yes, Assad did evil things and so did the opposition he was fighting against. Neither side was right in doing what they have done and continue to do. However, it is a civil war and the United States should not intervene.
Like many Americans, including many veterans whom served abroad, Tulsi Gabbard is tired of “regime change” wars. But that fact-finding mission and her statements are now being used against her. Not from Republicans but rather her own party members—Democrats. Tulsi Gabbard may not be the typical Democrat willing to just go along with today’s talking points. She may not be willing to be strung by puppet masters. And yes, Tulsi Gabbard may actually feel the wrath come down from her Democrat colleagues.
But what Tulsi Gabbard is doing is refreshing, even for this registered Republican who has never voted once for a Democrat.
Tulsi Gabbard may, in fact, be that Black Swan of the current Presidential race. It will be interesting to watch how this all plays out. I genuinely believe she may be on the warpath, ready to launch some nukes against her own party members in a way we never imagined. Time will tell, but I can’t help but think how Gabbard would serve exceptionally alongside our current President.
Imagine two opposing party members both willing to destroy the Right and Left swamp together as one…
Now that would be interesting.
