  Details   DMCA

The DNC has changed the qualifying threshold for the next Democratic primary debate, supposedly targeting no one specifically, but ensuring Tulsi Gabbard – the last remaining woman and person of color in the race – is excluded.

The DNC simply cannot allow Tulsi on stage as she tells the truth, is honest, they can’t control, and she would literally shred Biden in front of those watching. So much for the Dems to promote women, people of color, our troops, and democracy.

It's so obvious t's laughable. The only way they can defeat Tulsi is to cheat. Tulsi Gabbard is the only candidate who can beat both Trump and the Establishment and the Establishment knows it so they have their paid for media shills silence her while they do the same.

I disagree slightly.

I believe that Bernie Sanders as well as Tulsi Gabbard can accomplish this.

I also believe that a Bernie/Tulsi ticket will have the power and drive to transform and change this country.

I also believe that, with 4 or 8 years of seasoning as VP, Tulsi would be and excellent President, and the right person to carry on the progressive agenda that she began as VP.

Many decades ago, we had a democratic socialist as President, that the American People believed in so much that they elected him, FDR, to FOUR Presidential terms.

Having a two term Bernie Sanders Presidency, and then a two term Tulsi Gabbard Presidency would be able to accomplish what this country, and the planet, need to turn around and head back to a

Government of the People,

By the People

and For the People

AND save the planet from Climate Change!!

Tulsi's one flaw as a politician is her inability to excite a crowd as Bernie, Yang, Trump, and others can do. She is not the cheerleader type.

Dennis, I agree completely.

Tulsi has many very good qualities, but needs 'seasoning' to learn the rest.

I believe that as VP, and with a Bernie as her mentor, she is intelligent enough to learn from him how to lead this country, the American People, and the world into an era of peace and prosperity for the Majority of the American People.

I like the way she just plainly speaks the truth of the costs of these wars. Not sure if be good idea to be excited about that truth?

The only candidate with a powerful message to end the corrupt, bankrupting, immoral wars is being railroaded out of the campaign. This is not democracy. This is tyranny by warmongers who will risk human extinction to fatten their defense industry stock portfolios.

She is the only one with the courage to tell it like it is and that is what has the Establishment soiling their pants and why they are muzzling her at every turn. She has been exposing the entire system and even while the Establishment has been doing all in their power to silence her crowds at her town halls have been growing. If she was on the stage for this next debate, as she would be, there is not a doubt in my mind she would stand out over both Sanders and Biden. The Establishment knows it, hence another rule change.

There is only one up side to this decision. That is, that Ms. Gabbard may be spared the Kennedy solution.

IMHO, and to avoid the 'Kennedy solution' Bernie's best bet would be to choose a running mate that is AT LEAST as progressive as he is.

By doing this, if they assassinated Bernie they would have another very strong progressive to deal with, which would make Bernie's assassination much less likely.

Also IMHO, if elected and Tulsi as his VP, they both should never travel ANYWHERE together, not the same plane or the same car, and NEVER appear in public together. Doing so would make it possible for the Military Industrial Complex, corporate America and the power elite to assassinate both of them at the same time.

Before we begin to consider this, Bernie must first overcome the DNC's constant and overwhelming focus on preventing him from becoming the democratic nominee.

Tulsi & Bernie are the only candidates on either side that are not totally immoral, lying, grifting, festering piles of "

I am amazed that anyone with a smidgen of reasoning can support the democratic party. It is not democratic; it is a cesspool of cheats, thieves and murders that is clearly conning its base. Pretty much the same as the repubs and their base of non thinkers. I must be from another planet. Humans are interesting in a disgusting kind of way, but they can make really big explosions. AI will take care of them if climate change does not get them first.

Happy International Women's Day Tulsi and the rest of the marginalized women in this society(?).

I don't entirely fault "people". Most are very busy, distracted, inattentive, just trying to make it one day to the next. And the messaging is honed to a fine point with teams of psychologists putting together feel-good, if lame and vacuous, portraits of the establishment candidates. PLUS people really WANT TO BELIEVE that no one could be that ruthless and self-serving. They want to believe that America stands for the good and right and liberated and beautiful in the world. This pablum aligns with the fairy tales we've all been fed since birth, so it's easy to swallow, if tasteless and ultimately poisonous.

It's astonishing how intolerant the powerful are now of ANYTHING which doesn't fit into their candy-stripe narrative. I can still remember actual debates about America's role in the world, challenging abuse of military power, etc. now non-existent in the mainstream media or among our politicos. Now it's all an echo chamber of neocon/neoliberal obfuscation.

It's up to us to figure out correctives to the non-stop propaganda without alienating these people. It's a tight-rope walk, for sure. How do you tell a soldier who's lost both legs that the war he fought in was a complete fraud, we were not there to spread democracy, but there to protect stock portfolios and destroy-and-steal conquests for the ruling elite?
