Gabbard dares to tread where other Democratic Presidential candidates fear. Following the arrest of Julian Assange, Tulsi did multiple interviews attacking his arrest. She tweeted about the threat his arrest poses to us all.

"The arrest of #JulianAssange is meant to send a message to all Americans and Journalists: be quiet, behave, toe the line. Or you will pay the price."

On Tulsi's birthday, April 12, 2019, she spoke to a packed house at an unadvertised event in Culver City,CA, that was supposed to be a small gathering. Again the crowd was bigger than the venue. As the only peace candidate running for the Democratic nomination, Tulsi spoke about the risk of nuclear war, a real risk that could endanger everyone on the planet. The other Democratic candidates are refusing to address this risk. Currently, America is the closest to nuclear war than it has ever been. Tulsi is running to end this threat and save our lives. She opposes regime change wars, the drone strikes our government has been doing, torture and sanctions. Some have falsely presented her record to defame her. Her record shows that she is the one peace candidate running for the Democratic nomination for President.

Tulsi has pointed out that America's regime change wars are costly. Yet while there is always money for war, the people have been told there is no money for their needs .She feels this is wrong and must change.

Unlike the other candidates Tulsi has put forth legislation to require a return to paper ballots, something voting rights advocates have been demanding for years. This would have prevented the disastrous theft of the Democratic nomination of 2016 that resulted in a Donald Trump Presidency. While no other candidate has addressed the real problems with the election system, Tulsi is working to protect the rights of the voters. She never pushed the Russiagate nonsense, something that also sets her apart from every other Democratic candidate.

In Culver City, Tulsi addressed something else the other candidates won't touch, nuclear waste and environmental racism. In the morning, she joined other environmentalists in surving San Onofre. The other surfers pointed out to her the dangerous containers of nuclear waste overlooking the ocean. She spoke at the Culver City event of the dangers of nuclear power. She also talked about the concerns of a New Mexico resident over the government's plans to ship the waste to a Native American community l in New Mexico, threating the environment and health of the people living there as well. One of Tulsi's goals is to protect the planet by switching to safe, environmentally-friendly power sources. No other current Democratic candidate has dared to stand up against nuclear power.

San Onofre was permanently closed down in 2013 because there was no way to make it safe and its existance endangered the lives of millions of California residents. But they left the nuclear waste there. There never was a real evacuation plan and the containers of nuclear waste continue to pose a danger to people and children living in Southern California. The only Democratic candidate ever to show concern over the dangers posed by San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) besides Tulsi was 2004/2008 Presidential Candidate Dennis Kucinich.

Tulsi has proven to be the Democratic candidate with courage like no other. Because Tulsi Gabbard, easily reached the donation threshold to be on the debate stage, the Democratic Party is scared and today notified the campaign that the party is changing the criteria for the third and later debates. Wall Street and the war industry want Tulsi to disappear and the Democratic Party is changing the rules to try to make that happen. But Tulsi is not going away. She is currently doing better in numbers of attendees at her events than Bernie Sanders was at this time in 2015. Whatever challenge the Democrats throw at her, she will exceed, because she is the only one standing up for the people, against wars and for the freedom of the press.

After the event, she discussed concerns about the threat to our freedom resulting from the arrest of Julian Assange. Where are the other candidates and why don't they care?

When Bernie first appeared, I thought he may amount to something. But as time moved on I realized he was not any different than the rest.

Just another hot air bag.

What Tulsi Gabbard understands is that none of those "promises" from Bernie, et al will ever happen, if they can ever happen, without first reckoning with US empire wars.

Bernie on his support of war: No, Bernie's Not Anti-War

Everything else is a deceptive pipe dream as a perennial campaign run to nowhere. Bernie is a frightened protector of US Imperial Empire.

Meanwhile Tulsi's astute understanding of the real issues will never be on the Sanders agenda. Her understanding of how nuclear energy and weapons are bound together in a global threat 24X7 and how we must face what we've created: a ticking time bomb (not to mention, Daniel, your post by Guy McPherson, a must watch video, thank you).

In a just world among many other things, Gabbard would have been awarded a Profiles in Courage award, instead of the neoliberal club of Carolyn Kennedy's gift to corporatist Nancy Pelosi - has Ms. Kennedy ever read the book?

I'm concerned about the Dem. party pledge to support the DNC candidate at the end of the primary joke. Doubt Gabbard will be an advocate for a neoliberal corporate sponsored Dem candidate.

So far it appears that Gabbard will be on the debate stage (unless there's another hook), but with so much noise with 25 and counting candidates, who knows what message will pierce the veil of empire.

Remember how they silenced Dennis Kucinich in the debates. I believe he was given something like 30 seconds to speak in the 2-hour debate. Even then in several polls, Kucinich was deemed the winner. Tulsi can expect the same treatment.


She will be the pro among the amateurs, yet will not be given a favorable review by the paid for commentators.

I'm all for Gabbard, and was in 2016 when I thought she would make a good V.P. for Sanders, despite being just barely old enough to take office with the potential of being president.


But her poll numbers are terrible. RCP has her consistently at less than 1% in a very crowded field. Why are her numbers so low?


Biden is #1 but he hasn't declared yet, so the real competition hasn't begun. Sanders is a solid #2.

Scott - Obama was down at 1% when he first declared. Unless the media cover her campaign - they won't , just as they refused to cover Sanders - who will even know she is in the race?

Biden is clearly and openly a corporate toady.

Sanders clearly and openly a coward who went along with the DNC screwing him and consistently hums, haws, and starts to stink of BS when our empire's military is mentioned, making him a "corporate toady lite."

Tulsi is real. Consequently the press only covers her to ambush and bash her. She is a dem, but is being excluded as third party candidates ALWAYS are.

Our elections are not elections. They are selections of one or another corporate toady. A true representative of the people will always be mercilessly bashed by the oligarch controlled MSM. They are used as examples of how to ruin a career by supporting popular causes, sort of like the Julian Assange debacle. Real journalists and representative politicians are no longer tolerated anywhere in the world. We got lotsa smart bombs for those problems.

That's not how it works and you should know better. It just takes a spark to ignite a raging fire. As Lila pointed out, that was how it happened with Sanders. Once Gabbard reaches the breakout threshold, the media will be forced to pay attention...just as it did to Sanders in 2016 despite the massive Clinton/DNC efforts to suppress it. And he was a far less compelling candidate who bore the socialist stigmata. Tulsi is young, attractive, a vet and has cross party appeal - all of which Sanders lacked. It's only April 2019, Scott. So, if you are backing Gabbard lay off throwing around poll numbers, especially from an establishment apparatus like RCP... it works against your intenton. Gabbard will galvanize the voters to see that it's not about political parties, it's about establishment vs antiestablishment. That's really how Trump won.

I worked really hard for Dennis Kucinich in 2004 and 2008. He is a true person of peace and I'm proud to call him a friend to this day.

I also worked for Bernie in 2016, even to the point of trying to cast a vote for him as a member of the Electoral College

youtube.com/watch?v=7mPNSty71_w

Tulsi Gabbard embodies the best of both Dennis and Bernie. Dennis Kucinich was ahead of his time, which is one reason the media tried to ignore him and the Democratic Party feared him. The same is true of Tulsi. In fact she and Dennis have come down similar paths.

  • Public service starting at a young age.
  • Outspoken and unapologetic advocates for peace
  • Facing criticism for early positions on same-sex marriage before realizing equality must overrule the religious dogma one was subjected to in their youth, and admitting the early position was wrong.
  • Being demonized for traveling to Syria and meeting with, and trying to understand, Assad.
  • Standing up to the Democratic Party and Democratic National Committee when it fails to act in the best interests of the rank and file, even when it meant the party bosses recruited candidates to run against them in their state primaries.
  • Outspoken and fearless members of Congress and running for President as a member of Congress on a pro-peace, progressive platform.

In addition, Tulsi has military service in her resume (she has served twice as long as Buttigieg, has two deployments to the Middle East to his one, and outranks him).

She deserves to be heard and listened to, caucused for, voted for, and elected.

Agree with your sentiments regarding Tulsi Gabbard. Dennis was a head of his time in pretty much every respect. My hope is Tulsi's personality with the strong sense of purpose of Kucinich, will play a favorable role for her. The media will smear her with the help of the usual suspects (watch for her religion to begin to play a role in undermining her message). The CIA/Media have mastered this after decades of managing the US Imperial Empire (what Sheldon Wolin described as inverted totalitarianism).

Today we think Joseph McCarthy was a lone wolf anti-communist when in fact he was part of a huge propaganda effort (one that preceded him) to red-bait anyone who question the status quo and make the very words "communist" and it's brethren "socialism" akin to "evil" incarnate. It worked and is still working.

Never underestimate the DEEP STATE (they can even make you believe that they don't exist - hidden as they are in plain site, or as Schumer said: they have 6 ways from Sunday).

Another example of how these pathetic individuals attempt to control the thoughts of the populace is in the case of Tulsi Gabbard who isn't even mentioned in any articles as running for President. Their goal is to remain silent on her in hopes nobody learns anything about her so they don't have to make up negative things about her in order to discredit her. The fear is the more people learn about her the people may learn their next President will be veteran of 2 tours of duty to Iraq, a woman, a member of Congress, anti-regime change illegal invasions, and truly a professional.

I agree, she is much like Dennis Kucinich and that may be the reason the Pressitute Media Propagandists (PMP) are giving her the silent treatment in hopes the voters do not get to know her.

This is an excellent summary of Tulsi Gabbard's policy positions. It should be widely disseminated. I would like to add a few points regarding her character. Gabbard is courageous. The evidence can be seen in her military service and her thus far unique willingness to stand up to ruthless adversaries in a political minefield. Gabbard is patriotic. This is evident not only in her military service but also in her willingness to put the public good ahead of the monied interests that currently drive policy makers of both major political parties in Washington. Gabbard is dignified, self-possessed, poised, and temperate in demeanor. She is knowledgeable, in contrast with the ignoramus now in the White House. Gabbard is an experienced leader who projects gravitas and commands respect. She is, I think, a powerful antidote to the poisonous influence of the regime now in power.

From the article:

"...the Democratic Party is scared and today notified the campaign that the party is changing the criteria for the third and later debates."

Would like to have solid information about this, but am finding nothing. I have assumed that the DNC would pull a "Catch 22" on Tulsi, and if this statement is true, it appears that is what the DNC is doing.

Haven't seen it, either, but it wouldn't surprise me. The difference between Democrats and Republicans is Democrats find ways to deny ballot access to primary candidates that don't toe the party line. Republicans just find ways to stop folks who don't think like them from voting.

By all I know is right, this boiling melting pot will reach a tipping point and the people will demand and end to this bloated military spending. Helps me to know Arlo Guthrie has been out on the road for 50+ years selling out shows with a long song about stupidity. No one knows for sure how long that Group W Bench is right now, as he has been coming like a thief.

Until this post, I've heard next to nothing about Tulsi Gabbard. At the last election I was for Bernie and I usually get two of three emails each day to support him. If what I've read about today is true, I'm for Tulsi, mainly because she is the first I've heard about that's against war.

The number ONE thing I hated about Obama was all the rockets he sent to kill people and nearly all the people killed were the wrong ones killed. Also when he started his campaign he said he was for single payer health care. Yeah, sure, NOT!

If it's true Tulsi wants no war then she is who I want for president!

The already-born human beings probably need nuclear fission energy to reach age 80 years without dying from the indirect effects of not having enough dense energy and to reverse human-caused global heating and preserve the habitability of the planet for humans. Those who deny this have not run the numbers, I suspect (not that I have run them, either).

Fair elections require equal-weighted votes, which the current system does not provide. Two links:

There is hope that molten-salt reactors can take care of much of nuclear "waste". The engineering questions have not all been worked out yet, but check what advocates are saying looks possible.
