The Democrat Primary is getting fun to watch. At the recent debate they squabbled among themselves. Now, seemingly out of nowhere, Hillary Clinton has come along and renewed the attack on Tulsi Gabbard as some sort of Russian asset/spy:
“I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians.”
Clinton also went after Jill Stein’s 2016 campaign as being allied with Russia:
“That’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not, because she’s also a Russian asset. Yes, she’s a Russian asset, I mean, totally. They know they can’t win without a third-party candidate.”
Here a Russian, there a Russian. Everywhere a Russian.
It’s been almost 2 years after Hillary lost he Presidential election. And she still cannot come to grips with the fact that she lost and was rejected by the voters. Her psyche just cannot handle it. Her loss is ALWAYS someone else’s fault. Russian meddling, hackers, racism, sexism, James Comey, John Stewart (he retired before she ran thus opening the door for Trump’s election). Next it’ll be because Jupiter wasn’t aligned with Mars (thus peace didn’t rule the planet).
Gabbard wasted no time responding and fired back with both barrels:
Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain.
Ouch!! But so true. I have to give Gabbard credit. Her campaign is getting no traction and she saw an opportunity when it presented itself. She went on to say:
“It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.”
Well played, Tulsi Gabbard.
So what is causing all of this?
I believe Hillary is itching to get into the race and is using what she calculates is the most effective way to jump in: the Russians! Hillary is going to run in as the savior (in her mind). Why Gabbard? Because she is an easy target. And the most “moderate” candidate in the Dem primary. Now, Gabbard is NO moderate. But the fact that she SEEMS like one tells you how far to the left the entire party has moved. On the abortion issue, while all the other candidates couched the issue totally as a woman’s right or “reproductive issue”, Gabbard actually used the word “abortion” and is against it in the third trimester. That is the “moderate” position in the party.
Gabbard also seems to support Trump’s non-interventionist foreign policy (except for the fight against terrorists like ISIS). In 2015 she tweeted:
Al-Qaeda attacked us on 9/11 and must be defeated. Obama won’t bomb them in Syria. Putin did. #neverforget911.
One thing Trump has totally exposed in both parties is the desire for perpetual war. Gabbard echoes that so she must be silenced. And in that statement you also have the so-called Russian connection. Yes it’s a joke but the left is completely off their rocker.
One other possibility. Hillary could just be jealous because Gabbard looks better than she does!
Other Democrat candidates have come out in support of Gabbard:
Bernie Sanders: “Tulsi Gabbard has put her life on the line to defend this country. People can disagree on issues, but it is outrageous for anyone to suggest that Tulsi is a foreign asset.”
And Beto says that Trump is the REAL Russian asset (wow, real original).
Clinton’s attacks may make it MORE likely her fears of a third party candidate comes true. Gabbard has previously ruled it out but that was before her status was raised by Hillary. I imagine most people who don’t follow politics everyday had even heard her name before now. I know I hadn’t before the primary started. Thanks to Hillary, Tulsi Gabbard is on the radar.
The bottom line is that Hillary Clinton should be taken away in a straight-jacket. This woman is no longer capable of rational thinking. But, if she wants to jump into this race then more power to her. If she were to win the nominee, Trump’s election would be full proof guaranteed. And we could watch Hillary go down to defeat a third time.
But if I were Tulsi Gabbard, I’d have eyes in the back of my head. Many people who crossed the Clinton’s didn’t survive very long.
