Tulsi has made much of her career of eight years in the military, serving as a Major and helping her friends in harm's way as a medic. She's been criticized for that, along with her support for a non-binding resolution (a sign to me she is clearly serious about becoming Commander-in-Chief). She was criticized for her support of the new military budget, near as I can tell from a reliable OEN reader because in that bill was packaged support for fellow vets, who we are so happy to send to war for large corporations, but then offer them nothing in the way of immediate or later support. I've known more vets than I can count, including my Dad who got his ass shot up in WW11 and a Purple Heart to take the place of his life-long injuries and PTSD. I watched Peaceful Warrior with Nick Nolte years ago, I think three times and highly recommend it.
Say what you want about TG. As much as I've watched of her and about her, I can she is brilliant, a clear and forward progressive thinker, a genuine person, a peaceful warrior, and more insightful even that her most close observers that I'm aware of. But of course decide that for yourself (I also love Marianne Williamson's thinking on a genuine systemic level and way of speaking it, both eloquently and like greased lightning; I see them as birds of a feather at heart, wonderful complements to each other).
That bit aside, I assume most readers here have seen the Harris-Gabbard "give and take." After that, Tulsi and Harris' searches shot through the roof, and for good reason. Kamala set our her goons in full force to smear Tulsi ever since. But what has intrigued me more than anything to date came from Nick House, who I've seen a few times and liked his analysis.
Here it is on why you shouldn't blow smoke at Tulsi; she not only likes it, but returns it as fire, as suggested by the title of this lead-in to a short video.
