Beware fake warrants and orders in the hands of federal officers. On May 13, 2019, Secret Service, D.C. and State Department agents attempted a coordinated raid on the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington D.C. But their order was fake and in the end, after breaking the locks and entering the building, the agents had to back down and leave with the embassy protectors victorious.

Across the country in Santa Monica, California, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, held a pre-event press conference in which she expressed concern for the mistreatment of the embassy protectors, calling them "PEACE WARRIORS" and saying the "United States needs to keep our hands off Venezuela."

Tulsi is the only 2020 Presidential candidate who has spoken out in support of the Venezuelan Embassy Protectors or rather, "Peace Warriors." She is the only candidate who has stood firm against regime change wars and sanctions, both in legislation, positions and in rhetoric. She has consistently been the only candidate to stand up for the people on important issues, such as her opposition to the arrest of Julian Assange. Tulsi Gabbard is also the only 2020 Presidential candidate who went to Standing Rock in support of the Native Americans protecting the water in 2016. The other candidates just did not care.

Therefore, it is no surprise that wherever Tulsi speaks, the auditoriums are filled past capacity with people lining the walls and with authorities telling volunteers that hundreds more would-be observers cannot enter due to concerns that a fire marshal would be called in due to overcrowding. Concerned about those unable to get into the Santa Monica event, Tulsi went outside and walked down the line personally greeting those who had come in the hopes of getting a glimpse of The Peace Presidential Candidate of 2020.

Inside, on issue after issue, Tulsi words were met with thunderous applause. Tulsi was the DNC Vice Chairman who stepped down in 2016 to support Bernie Sanders in his Presidential bid. She introduced Bernie at the National Convention that year. On domestic policy, such as Medicare for All, and College for All, they two are unified in their positions. Tulsi had gone further to introduce legislation for paper ballots to prevent election-rigging. Her voting record shows that she is the most pro-LBGTQ of all the candidates. She also introduced legislation to end the imprisonment of marijuana users. At the Santa Monica event, she made it clear that she considers housing to be a human right.

ON foreign policy, Tulsi is the top Congressional leader promoting peace. She introduced a bill calling on the United States Government to stop funding terrorists and pushed the legislation to stop U.S. support for the war on Yemen. Tulsi was the first member of Congress to openly support Ilhan Omar when the later was under attack. Tulsi has been speaking out against war with Iran. She is a major in the National Guard and she learned first-hand the costs of regime change wars during her two tours of duty in Iraq. She believes these regime change wars are a disservice to our service men and women. When asked what she would do with respect to Afghanistan and Iraq when she takes office, she informed the audience she would start bringing the troops home.

So it is no wonder that, with all of Tulsi's courage, she is the only 2020 candidate speaking out in support of the Embassy Protectors and in support of Julian Assange and the strongest candidate for ending regime-change wars.

The major pollsters are refusing to ask her name in their polls. Then they proceed to show results for a candidate who was not included in the polls. In response, more and more Americans are refusing to participate in polls that do not include Tulsi Gabbard's name. When you see a poll, you are therefore likely seeing only the choices of the pro-war respondents. Judging from the crowds who cannot get into the arenas where Tulsi speaks and from the overwhelming enthusiasm of crowds for her positions, there is no doubt among those who see Tulsi that she is a frontrunner in the 2020 race.

Tulsi is the first candidate in decades who finally is telling us the way it is and the reason we are losing (have lost?) our nation, even telling us the negative end result should we continue this downward spiral. It is no wonder she is being silenced and smeared from all Presstitute Media Propagandist (PMP) outlets, GOP members, and more telling from the DNC. She has a firm grasp on the realities of the dire status of our government and is making sure those who are able to hear her know it. She is showing strong courage, an apparent missing character trait in all other candidates, as she gives her views on what is missing from Congress and our Executive Branch. She is showing a strong will and determination to achieve what she envisions as what a government of the people, by the people, and for the people can do.

It is up to we the people to put this leader in the White House. She is the only candidate running who may well be the savior of our once mighty nation. She is the only candidate striving to make this a nation FOR THE PEOPLE.

Alas, the police have arrested the peace activists in the embassy: Police Raid Venezuelan Embassy in DC, Arrest Last Remaining Members of Embassy Protection Collective "The activists from the Embassy Protection Collective have been living inside the embassy since 10 April in a bid to protect it from US attempts to seize the facility and hand it over to supporters of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido."

I predict that the DNC and every possible lever the ruling class has will undermine her in every possible way. She is already getting the Henry Wallace treatment as in 1944. She should use the Democrats. Up until the convention. Then she should walk out of the Democratic party when they force a second ballot and use Superdelegates to dictate yet another war party clone of Clinton. The fact that the DNC pushes Biden. And that it asked the vapid Pete Buttigieg to stand in for him when Biden was ill for an event shows its genetic mediocrity and frankly mendacity of Democrats.
