Why would the most talked-about candidate at the Democratic Party debate be almost entirely invisible on Twitter and attacked on cable networks afterward? Perhaps because the establishment protects its own.

Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) was the most searched-for candidate in every single state after Wednesday night’s second Democratic debate, according to Google trends. Conservative news outlets Breitbart and the Drudge Report also declared her the victor, with 50 and 39 percent of the vote respectively.

However, you wouldn’t know that if you had been watching CNN or MSNBC. While Gabbard is a foreign-policy focused candidate who has repeatedly stated her opposition to “regime change wars” abroad and her appetite for criminal justice reform at home, MSNBC couldn’t move past a meeting Gabbard had with Syrian President Bashar Assad

Now Tulsi's sexist according to warmonger Hillary Clinton. This gets more bizarre as more buffoons enter the foray in an attempt to bail out the darling of the DNC and Hillary's machine. Kamala is the only hope of this group of candidates that would take orders from the Clinton cabal of corruption.

Three years ago Tulsi showed her qualifications for the Presidency as she put integrity above self when she saw the crimes Hillary's cabal was committing against Bernie Sanders. She resigned her position as #2 in the DNC in order to endorse Sanders and now she is exposing Kamala who is being the recipient of much of the same as the media is silencing Tulsi in order to keep her message hidden and lacing the silence with debunked smears. The DNC is simply up to their dirty tricks, they should be smart enough to see how far that got them in 2016, but criminal types often fail to see reality.

Harris is the only corporate shill running who has any following, so the media will push her down the throats of the public for the next year, just as they did for Hillary. If only Assange were free he might be able to end her by publishing the truth about her past.

The system that perpetuates the myths of this nation and horrors from climate, ecological destruction to war (military/economic) much of the world faces: capitalistic imperialism.

These folks are just the fronts to the "enemy". None of whom either will or can change the underlying cause.

Tulsi is my number 2 choice and yes the media is putting her down.daily kos a moderate democratic website which tries to pass itself off as liberal did a real smear job on her earlier in the campaigns calling her a traitor.the unfortunate part is most Democrats get their news from corporate controlled sources so tulsi is forever doomed

I don't think the smears will work this time out - but then there is the vote theft, machine rigging etc. what they did to Bernie in the 2016 primary. If she pulls into a leading position, they will likely just steal it from her. The US is owned and operated by the spooks, the bankers, big pharma and big oil. not by us.

In particular, every time Gabbard is on MSNBC they ask her, looking most serious and scornful, why she met with Assad. How many friggin times does she have to answer that?

And she answers them every time asked not like Kamala who has yet to respond to Tulsi's remarks pertaining to her work as AG in California other than scrubbing documents that would incriminate her and of course these commentators have the order to not ask Harris to discuss her record.
