How propaganda turned Democrats into cheerleaders for the war party.

Tulsi Gabbard’s recent comments about how impeachment hearings would tear our country apart has revived the Putin Puppet Meme against her. Just so you know: Evan McMullin started this bullshit in an effort to bully her, when she respected the peaceful transition of power (as is required by the Presidential Transition Act) and provided Trump with a national security briefing at Trump Tower.

Months later, when Tulsi went on a fact-finding mission to Syria, McMullin-Stan Louise Mensch, amplified this Meme for the huge audience she had captured with her “coming soon” promise of super secret RUMINT (unfounded rumors) that would see Trump hanged by the neck ’til dead for treason.

Louise continues to sling this lie, even though she has admitted that she has NO intel about Tulsi actually being a Putin Puppet. NONE whatsoever. But she keeps repeating it, and people kept believing it… out of sheer HOPE that some revelation will eventually materialize.

Even after the Mueller investigation was completed, and absolutely nothing was found that implicated Tulsi, Louise has failed to retract her libel. And the pundits still repeat her RUMINT.

Pundits like Caroline Orr, who also admits she has no evidence… but who has been fundraising for a trip to Hawaii to investigate Tulsi-rumors.

The TRUTH about the Tulsi Putin Puppet story: It is a total lie, started by an ex-CIA Fuck-Head who is pissed at Tulsi because she does not want our country to continue arming terrorists in the Middle East, and was further propagated by a “journalist” who we now know is an Alt-Right Sock Puppet who also secretly collaborated with Hillary for America.

When I wrote this blog piece about Tulsi’s long fight for peace in Syria, I tried to remind people that the Democratic Party used to share Tulsi’s position, and I asked people to think about why and how Democrats have changed their views.

So… what happened to the Party of Peace?

Never Trump Republicans have fueled Democrats with a lust to see Trump hang for treason, and hijacked that contempt to push their own neoconservative narratives… convincing people that only traitors would practice diplomacy and desire peace. That’s what happened.

The new normal for Democrats seems to be war and intervention as first resort — hence the willingness to believe these unfounded rumors. Can we please bring back the old normal of advocating for peace and diplomacy first?

Thank you.

What has Tulsi Gabbard done to help impeach Trump?

154 members of congress have now officially announced support for impeachment inquiries, based on a conspiracy theory triggered by an anonymous source.

🚨BREAKING: 7 more House Democrats — including 6 freshman Dems — announce support for impeachment hearings: Gil Cisneros, Chrissy Houlahan, Elaine Luria, Mikie Sherrill, Elissa Slotkin, Abigail Spanberger & Angie Craig. That brings the total to 154 Representatives!#ImpeachTrump

And while the political gossip peddlers wonder out loud about why Tulsi doesn’t seem to have the will or desire to impeach Donald Trump, I’d like to know why other members of congress have failed to support legislation that Tulsi Gabbard has introduced, that would have kicked him out of the White House a long time ago.

Together, with the late Walter Jones, Tulsi introduced H.Res.1069, affirming that the use of the U.S. Armed Forces without congressional authorization is illegal and unconstitutional; and H.Res.1069, which prohibits the President from making the United States a co-belligerent in an ongoing war without a congressional declaration, and which triggers an automatic impeachment vote if violated.

If Democrats really wanted to impeach Donald Trump, they would have done so over his illegal and unconstitutional military strikes against Syria. Why haven’t they?

Tulsi has always fought for peace in Syria

Neocons like Evan McMullin like to say that Tulsi has long sided with Russia in Syria. Neo-Progressives like to say that Tulsi once supported regime change in Syria, but changed her stance later when it suited her politically. Some say that change happened after she met with Assad in 2017.

The Truth: Tulsi has never supported regime change in Syria. She has fought against it from the very beginning, before Russia was even involved in the matter.

Propagandists are spreading a lie on social media about Tulsi Gabbard voting in favor of Syrian regime change war in 2013. They are doing so by misinterpreting an old blog post titled: Congress has already considered Syrian intervention this year.

The post mentions S. 960: Syria Transition Support Act of 2013, but that bill was introduced by the Senate (which Tulsi was never a member of). And while the author tells us that the bill was “approved by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee,” it was never actually brought to the floor for a vote.

The blog post also mentions an amendment to a defense appropriations bill that Tulsi voted against. It explains that the amendment intended to remove language that meant, “President Obama’s publicly stated red lines must be enforced.” But this is not an accurate reflection of the actual text:

The President of the United States should fully consider all courses of action to reinforce his stated ‘‘redline’’ regarding the use of chemical weapons.

It doesn’t say that Obama’s red line “must be enforced”, it says that “all courses of action should be considered”. Tulsi voted to leave that phrase in the bill.

Prior to this vote, and after sitting through a slew of classified briefings, Tulsi made her objections clear.

“I am sickened and outraged by the carnage and loss of lives caused by the use of chemical weapons in Syria. It is with gravity that I have carefully considered all the facts, arguments, and evidence and soberly weighed concerns regarding our national security and moral responsibility. As a result, I have come to the conclusion that a U.S. military strike against Syria would be a serious mistake.”

Democrats praised her diplomatic approach, as she led the fight for our leaders to consider alternative courses of action. Republicans, on the other hand, preferred war.

Thanks to her push for a peaceful solution, negotiations were held. Assad signed on with the Chemical Weapons Convention, and we were able to avoid military conflict.

Oddly, when chemical weapons were used against Syrians in 2017 and Tulsi called for the CWC to be enforced by the United Nations, Democrats instead joined Republicans and called for war, in violation of international law.

Tulsi Gabbard has always fought for peace in Syria. She didn’t come home repeating Assad or Putin’s talking points. Rather, she doubled down on her convictions, and repeated views that Democrats once shared. Tulsi Gabbard has not changed, but Democrats have. People should start wondering why.

Please read my Twitter thread about peaceful alternatives in Syria… and about how to recognize a keyboard Jihadist / al-Qaeda sympathizer:

Plus… we are not the World’s Police. The UN is. It is time to end our vigilantism.
