TULSI TAKES ON CORRUPT DNC! ~ Rick Scheck on “The Wonder Woman of American Politics”

“By virtue of her getting several delegates on Super Tuesday, Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard qualified for the March 15th debate in Arizona under then existing party guidelines. That is, until the DNC did it again and changed the rules to manipulate the process. After outright collusion in 2016 to block Bernie Sanders from winning the nomination and changing the rules again prior to a recent debate that allowed Money Bags Bloomberg to participate, they have gone ahead and rigged the system again. But Gabbard will have none of it! True to her image as ‘the Wonder Woman of American Politics’ — Gabbard’s willingness to stand up for what she believes and interject her unique perspective into the discourse is a most welcome development by this critic of the sham process presented by the DNC. A quick glance at this tall, strong, beautiful lady makes it clear that she looks very much like that cartoon character. But make no mistake about it: she is for real! Anyone doubting that need only listen to her dispatch Hillary Clinton into political oblivion with a few daunting sentences to rebuke the absurd accusations by the former Secretary of State that she is a ‘Russian Agent!’ In substance, she is like Trump was to the Republican Party and Washington Establishment: a Wrecking Ball whose focused rhetoric and policy pronouncements against our regime change wars are causing the bipartisan proponents for Pax Americana to become virtually deranged. The key difference between Trump and Gabbard relates to their styles: whereas he is hot-headed, self-serving and needlessly divisive with his narcissistic rants, she is cool, composed and focused, the very essence of grace under fire! Gabbard is a war veteran who served two tours in Iraq: she is a warrior willing to wage battle against America’s enemies, both foreign and domestic. The domestic ones are more real these days than those abroad since most of our wars of intervention which she strongly opposes are the result of lies, propaganda and false flag psy-ops designed to provide justification for our Imperial designs. Now we know that she is going to fight for her right to party/debate! Go, Wonder Woman, Go!”

Tulsi Gabbard: The Wonder Woman of American Politics! & Wonder Woman Tulsi Gabbard Takes On Corrupt DNC!

STEPHEN LENDMAN: “Deep-State DNC Changes Rules To Disqualify Tulsi Gabbard From Upcoming Debates — After She Had Qualified”

“They want control of the official narrative, alternative views suppressed, the hallmark of totalitarian rule. They want her denied a platform on national television to oppose endless US wars against invented enemies both right wings of the one-party state want waged endlessly. They want support expressed for universal healthcare and other social justice programs, opposed by wealth and power interests, silenced. It’s official. On Friday, DNC rules were changed again to block Gabbard’s participation in the upcoming Arizona debate — the bar raised above her qualifying threshold. The new standard eliminates women, people of color, non-Judeo-Christians, and anyone under age-70. It also mocks democracy the way it’s supposed to be. In the US, there’s none at all, just the illusion of a free, fair and open process that doesn’t exist and never did from inception.”

Undemocratic Dems in cahoots with US wealth and power interests want Gabbard shut out of the race to be party standard bearer and silenced on a national stage.

They want control of the official narrative, alternative views suppressed, the hallmark of totalitarian rule.

They want her denied a platform on national television to oppose endless US wars against invented enemies both right wings of the one-party state want waged endlessly.

They want support expressed for universal healthcare and other social justice programs, opposed by wealth and power interests, silenced.

According to DNC debate rules, presidential aspirants with one or more delegates from primaries or caucuses qualify to participate in upcoming ones.

Those were the rules before Gabbard won two delegates.

According to DNC communications director Xochitl Hinojosa, the qualifying threshold may be raised, tweeting:

“We have two more debates. Of course the threshold will go up. By the time we have the March debate, almost 2,000 delegates will be allocated. The threshold will reflect where we are in the race, as it always has.”

The next Dem debate is scheduled for March 15 ahead of the Arizona primary. Sanders, Biden and Gabbard alone remain in contention for the Dem nomination after Warren dropped out Thursday.

Despite too far behind to catch up, Gabbard remains in the race.

She’s in it to “save the people and the planet from annihilation” from nuclear war and/or ecocide.

She supports what she believes is right on major issues — even when her views are unpopular with powerful interests.

Things are “getting closer and closer to the brink of nuclear war, and unless we deal with pulling back, walking away from the risk of nuclear disaster, nothing else will matter,” she stressed.

She called for “deescalating tensions with nuclear armed countries…bringing about an end to the new Cold War and nuclear arms race, and putting the interests of the American people and country ahead of all else.”

Undemocratic Dems manipulated things to engineer her out of contention last year because of remarks like the following:

“Knowing first-hand the cost of war, both on our service members, on our veterans, as well as the cost on the people in the countries where we intervene, as well as the trillions of dollars, our taxpayer dollars, that are spent on waging these wars, dollars that are sorely needed to address the very real urgent needs of our families, our communities, our neighbors right here at home” — she called for using the nation’s resources for domestic needs.

“No more wars for regime change, like Syria and Afghanistan,” she said — opposing intervention abroad as well for regime change in Iran, Venezuela and elsewhere.

Dem debate participation rules last year required presidential aspirants to have 130,000 unique donors, at least 400 of them in 20 states, along with at least 2% support in four or more DNC-approved polls between June 28 and August 28, 2019.

After participating in the November 2019 Dem debate, Gabbard was shut out of subsequent ones.

In late January, the DNC changed the debate rules to let Michael Bloomberg participate, beginning on February 19 in Nevada.

To qualify henceforth, candidates must win at least one delegate or receive 10% or more support in at least four DNC-approved polls between January 15 and February 18.

Candidates could also qualify by getting 12% or more support in at least two polls for the Nevada caucuses or South Carolina primary.

Changing rules in the middle of the game is part of DNC manipulation for a party standard bearer considered safe.

Earlier, Real Clear Politics contributor Michael Tracey said Gabbard is being “victimized by dubious DNC criteria that appear increasingly absurd.”

With all Dem aspirants out of the race except Biden, Sanders and Gabbard, the DNC wants her shut out, her views silenced, especially her anti-war advocacy.

Party bosses rigged Super Tuesday, resurrecting Biden’s campaign from near-collapse to frontrunner status.

They want Gabbard denied a national platform to potentially mess up their best laid plans to anoint the former vice president party standard bearer.

Democracy the way it should be prohibits electoral dirty tricks. It lets political aspirants from all parties and persuasions participate on a level playing field, including independents.

It keeps money out of politics, prevents predetermined outcomes, and automatically enfranchises all citizens, disenfranchising no one for any reasons.

It encourages voter participation by a process that’s open, free and fair.

It assures governance of, by and for everyone equitably, giving real meaning to “we the people.”

It prevents what Adam Smith called “the defense of the rich against the poor,” what Michael Parenti called a system that protects “a rising bourgeoisie’s freedom to invest, speculate, trade, and accumulate wealth” at the expense of the public welfare.

In the US, outcomes for high-level political positions are predetermined, the process manipulated to assure it.

Losers are declared winners – and not just for president. America’s electoral process lacks legitimacy.

The divine right of capital runs things, voters with no say over who rules and how the country is run.

Party bosses in cahoots with monied interests manipulate the process with electronic ease.

Americans get the best “democracy” deep pockets can buy.

Whenever elections are held, powerful interests win every time at the expense of peace, equity, justice, the rule of law, and a nation safe and fit to live in.

Gabbard is a fly in the dirty system’s ointment, why the process was rigged and re-rigged against her participation on a national stage.

And if those dirty tricks fail, many more can be used to manipulate her out of contention.

According to unstated rules by both right wings of the one-party state, aspirants against endless wars and for social justice cannot be allowed to serve in high office — the dirty system rigged to assure it.

A Final Comment

It’s official. On Friday, DNC rules were changed again to block Gabbard’s participation in the upcoming Arizona debate — the bar raised above her qualifying threshold.

New rules now require candidates to have at least 20% of delegates to qualify.

The new standard eliminates women, people of color, non-Judeo-Christians, and anyone under age-70.

It also mocks democracy the way it’s supposed to be. In the US, there’s none at all, just the illusion of a free, fair and open process that doesn’t exist and never did from inception.

Ascension Avatar note: Neither ‘Democrat’ nor ‘Republican’, I’ve never taken either side within the ‘divided’ One-Party system. Can you see how the corrupt, hijacked Deep State system operates? Trump, Pence, Pompeo and “All The President’s Men” are a part of this Kabbalist (Satanic) ‘big boy’s club’ (with Hillary right at home) — putting ISRAEL FIRST (war + killing = blood sacrifice). If you are not a part of this elite, racist, misogynist, maniacal, murderous, supremacist cult — or have been brainwashed or bribed to ‘join’ like most others — then you are ‘OUT’ — and ‘THEY’ (in the words of Khazarian Mafia leader Benjamin Netanyahu) “WILL DESTROY YOU”. Or at least try! Tulsi Gabbard is a powerful, evolved sovereign being who wants the same for everybody and every nation. The Evil Ones know she would have melted them all down with LIGHT and TRUTH in the debates, like she did with Kamala Harris. I support Tulsi because she is NOT “political” and didn’t “sell her soul”. She’s humane, sensible… spiritual! So… welcome to the Satanic New World Order… and wake up to the Zionist Deep State Circus Show… but never settle. Fight… fight… fight! Remember, peaceful as Lisa Renee herself is… she’s a Light Warrior in constant active combat! 😇

TULSI GABBARD’S ‘SILENT WAR’ ~ Caitlin Johnstone on the DNC “Tulsi 2020 Blackout Campaign”

“The establishment narrative warfare against Gabbard’s campaign dwarfs anything we’ve seen against Sanders, and the loathing and dismissal they’ve been able to generate have severely hamstrung her run. It turns out that a presidential candidate can get away with talking about economic justice and plutocracy when it comes to domestic policy, and some light dissent on matters of foreign policy will be tolerated, but aggressively attacking the heart of the actual bipartisan foreign policy consensus will get you shut down, smeared and shunned like nothing else. This is partly because US presidents have a lot more authority over foreign affairs than domestic, and it’s also because endless war is the glue which holds the empire together. All this means is that the machine is exposing its mechanics to the view of the mainstream public. Both the Gabbard campaign and the Sanders campaign have been useful primarily in this way; not because the establishment would ever let them actually become president, but because they force the unelected manipulators who really run things in the most powerful government on earth to show the public their box of dirty tricks.”

~Caitlin Johnstone

 

The blackout on the Tulsi 2020 campaign has reached such extreme heights this year that you now routinely see pundits saying things like there are no more people of color in the race, or that Elizabeth Warren is the only woman remaining in the primary. They’re not just ignoring her, they’re actually erasing her. They’re weaving a whole alternative reality out of narrative in which she is literally, officially, no longer in the race.

After Gabbard announced her presidential candidacy in January of last year I wrote an article explaining that I was excited about her campaign because she would severely disrupt establishment narratives, and, for the remainder of 2019, that’s exactly what she did. She spoke unauthorized truths about Syria, Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia, she drew attention to the plight of Julian Assange and Edward Snowden and said she’d drop all charges against both men if elected, she destroyed the hawkish, jingoistic positions of fellow candidates on the debate stage and arguably single-handedly destroyed Kamala Harris’ run.

The Russia smears were relentless, the fact that she met with Syrian president Bashar al-Assad was brought up at every possible opportunity in every debate and interview, and she was scoffed at and derided at every turn.

Now, in 2020, none of that is happening. There’s a near-total media blackout on the Gabbard campaign, such that I now routinely encounter rank-and-file liberals on social media who tell me they honestly had no idea she’s still running. She’s been completely redacted out of the narrative matrix.

So it’s unsurprising that the DNC felt comfortable striding forward and openly announcing a change in the debate threshold literally the very moment Gabbard crossed it. These people understand narrative control, and they know full well that they have secured enough of it on the Tulsi Problem that they’ll be able to brazenly rig her right off the stage without suffering any meaningful consequences.

The establishment narrative warfare against Gabbard’s campaign dwarfs anything we’ve seen against Sanders, and the loathing and dismissal they’ve been able to generate have severely hamstrung her run. It turns out that a presidential candidate can get away with talking about economic justice and plutocracy when it comes to domestic policy, and some light dissent on matters of foreign policy will be tolerated, but aggressively attacking the heart of the actual bipartisan foreign policy consensus will get you shut down, smeared and shunned like nothing else. This is partly because US presidents have a lot more authority over foreign affairs than domestic, and it’s also because endless war is the glue which holds the empire together.

All this means is that the machine is exposing its mechanics to the view of the mainstream public. Both the Gabbard campaign and the Sanders campaign have been useful primarily in this way; not because the establishment would ever let them actually become president, but because they force the unelected manipulators who really run things in the most powerful government on earth to show the public their box of dirty tricks.

STEPHEN LENDMAN: “Trump and Erdogan Regimes: Partners Against Syrian Sovereignty”

Trump and wannabe sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan are warlords hostile to peace, stability, and the rule of law.

Neither can be trusted, both figures mortal enemies of what just societies hold dear.

On Saturday, a statement by Russia’s Foreign Ministry defied reality in Syria, saying:

Moscow and Ankara “confirmed their determination to ease tensions ‘on the ground’ in the process of continuing (to fight) terrorists, designated as such by the UN Security Council, as well as to defend the civilian population both within and outside the (Idlib) deescalation zone and provide urgent humanitarian assistance to all who need it.”

Using jihadists as proxy troops, Turkish aggression in Syria continues.

AMN News reported that a “large Turkish convoy entered Syria(’s) (Idlib province) on Saturday” — including troops, tanks, armored vehicles, and other military equipment.

On the same day, Russian warplanes launched heavy strikes on US/Turkish supported jihadists that are combatting Syrian ground forces.

AMN News reported that Russian aerial support “will likely intensify…over northwestern Syria for the next few days, as (Syrian forces) await the arrival of more military equipment” from Russia.

At a Friday Security Council session on Syria, its UN envoy Bashar al-Jaafari accused the Erdogan regime of using so-called observation posts in the country’s northwestern as platforms to aid jihadists attack government forces and civilians.

On Saturday, Southfront reported that an unverified video showed Turkish military personnel “torturing, beating and humiliating Syrian soldiers that had been captured by Turkish-backed” jihadists in Idlib.

Establishment media consistently suppress this type information, are quick to falsely blame Syrian forces for high crimes of war and against humanity committed by the US, its allied forces, and jihadists they support.

The US, its imperial partners, and cutthroat killer terrorist proxies bear full responsibility for endless war in Syria and other countries the Pentagon raped and destroyed.

On Saturday in response to US/Turkish aggression in Idlib, presidential aspirant Tulsi Gabbard tweeted the following:

“President Trump needs to make it clear to NATO and Erdogan that the United States will not be dragged into a war with Russia by the aggressive, Islamist, expansionist dictator of Turkey, a so-called ‘NATO’ ally.”

By video, she accused Erdogan of allying with al-Qaeda to advance his revanchist aims.

She denounced establishment media for referring to jihadists as “rebels, making them seem like freedom fighters,” adding:

The Erdogan regime “has been supporting al-Qaeda and other terrorists in Syria for years to overthrow the Syrian government.”

He’s “working with al-Qaeda and other terrorists to reestablish an Ottoman empire.”

Allied with “his al-Qaeda partners,” he’s a hugely dangerous “megalomaniac.”

Gabbard called on Congress to pass her Stop Arming Terrorists Act.

Introduced in December 2016, it calls for “prohibit(ing) the US government from using American taxpayer dollars to provide funding, weapons, training, and intelligence support to groups like the Levant Front, Fursan al Ha and other allies of Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, al-Qaeda and ISIS, or to countries who are providing direct or indirect support to those same groups.”

At the time, Gabbard said the following on the House floor:

“Under US law, it is illegal for any American to provide money or assistance to al-Qaeda, ISIS or other terrorist groups.”

“If you or I gave money, weapons or support to al-Qaeda or ISIS, we would be thrown in jail.”

“Yet the US government has been violating this law for years, quietly supporting allies and partners of al-Qaeda, ISIL, Jabhat Fateh al Sham and other terrorist groups with money, weapons, and intelligence support, in their fight to overthrow the Syrian government.”

“The CIA has also been funneling weapons and money through Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar and others who provide direct and indirect support to groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda.”

“This support has allowed al-Qaeda and their fellow terrorist organizations to establish strongholds throughout Syria, including in Aleppo.”

“That is why I’ve introduced the Stop Arming Terrorists bill – legislation based on congressional action during the Iran-Contra affair to stop the CIA’s illegal arming of rebels in Nicaragua.”

The US created ISIS, al-Qaeda, and likeminded jihadist groups that are used as proxy forces in its war theaters, supported by Pentagon terror-bombing.

Erdogan uses jihadists the same way for his own self-interest.

On opposite sides of the US war in Syria, he and Putin reportedly will meet in Moscow later this week.

Breaching what he agreed to with Russia and Iran in Astana and Sochi showed his pledges are hollow.

His aggression in Syria risks rupturing relations with valued ally Putin.

Waging a war in Syria he can’t win, he has much more to lose than gain by escalating it.

His actions could isolate himself on the world stage by alienating Russia, the EU by letting refugees head to Europe, and the US when he no longer serves its interests.

Ruthless at home, expansionist abroad, and untrustworthy in dealings with other nations showed he’s a menace on the world stage — risking regional or possible global war by escalating aggression in Syria.

TULSI GABBARD: “We Cannot Be Bought”

“This campaign cannot be bought — by special interests, the D.C. establishment elite, the corrupt military industrial complex and those who profit from it. Right now Senator Bernie Sanders and I are the ONLY candidates not being funded by either Super PACS or enormous personal wealth. That makes me proud… you make me proud. I cannot do this without you. The consequences of taking on the establishment elite and the powerful institutions they serve are steep — media blackouts, smear campaigns, an uphill battle to be heard — but you know and I know that it’s worth it in the end.”
