Can the Media Be Stopped – LewRockwell

The media’s treatment of Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, presidential candidate.

Knowing what I know about the warfare state, the establishment, and the media, it’s obvious what they’re trying to do to her.

They’ve done it to other dissidents, and they’ll do it to anyone else who dissents from the War Party.

Exhibits A and B, posted by folks in my private group:

Then, from Lew Rockwell and Twitter, some sane commentary on how Tulsi is being treated:

(That’s a reference to Kasie Hunt of NBC News.)

In other words, ignoramuses are interrogating her, while not actually knowing even the most basic facts…

How did the nuttiness accelerate to this point? It shocks even me.

Be seeing you

NBC News, to Claim Russia Supports Tulsi Gabbard, Relies on Firm Just Caught Fabricating Russia Data for the Democratic Party

Posted by M. C. on February 4, 2019

NBC is like Hillary. Lying is such a way of life they can’t keep track.

https://theintercept.com/2019/02/03/nbc-news-to-claim-russia-supports-tulsi-gabbard-relies-on-firm-just-caught-fabricating-russia-data-for-the-democratic-party/

NBC NEWS PUBLISHED a predictably viral story Friday, claiming that “experts who track websites and social media linked to Russia have seen stirrings of a possible campaign of support for Hawaii Democrat Tulsi Gabbard.”

But the whole story was a sham: the only “experts” cited by NBC in support of its key claim was the firm, New Knowledge, that just got caught by the New York Times fabricating Russian troll accounts on behalf of the Democratic Party in the Alabama Senate race to manufacture false accusations that the Kremlin was interfering in that election.

The Single Stupidest Argument In The Entire Stupid Salad Of Russiagate – Caitlin Johnstone

Posted by M. C. on February 1, 2019

“Hmmm, you think the US should refrain from destroying countries all around the world? You know who else thinks that? The Kremlin!

https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2019/01/31/the-single-stupidest-argument-in-the-entire-stupid-salad-of-russiagate/

The other day Hawaii congresswoman and Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard came out with what remains the strongest rejection of the Trump administration’s regime change interventionism in Venezuela out of anyone likely to run for the presidency in 2020.

“The United States needs to stay out of Venezuela,” Gabbard tweeted. “Let the Venezuelan people determine their future. We don’t want other countries to choose our leaders–so we have to stop trying to choose theirs.”

Boom. Unambiguous, unequivocal, and without any of the “Yeah Maduro is an evil monster, but” modifiers that other officials (including Bernie Sanders) have been prefacing their feeble objections to Trump’s campaign to topple the Venezuelan government with. Which of course outraged all the usual war pundits, including the Washington Post‘s most reliable military-industrial complex fluffer Josh Rogin.

“Again, @TulsiGabbard shares the same foreign policy position as Russia and the Assad regime,” Rogin tweeted in response to Gabbard’s statement. “It’s probably just a coincidence. #TusiAssad2020”

This man calls himself a journalist. He works for one of the most respected and influential news outlets in America.

Rogin’s post is obnoxious and idiotic for a whole host of reasons Read the rest of this entry »

Five Reasons I’m Excited About Tulsi Gabbard’s Candidacy – Caitlin Johnstone

Posted by M. C. on January 17, 2019

https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2019/01/14/five-reasons-im-excited-about-tulsi-gabbards-candidacy/

Here are a five thoughts on that subject:

1 – Gabbard will definitely be the most antiwar candidate on the debate stage by a wide margin, except in the highly unlikely event that someone steps up from way out of left field to run like Dennis Kucinich. Being the most antiwar candidate in anything associated with the Democratic Party is a very low bar, but her vocal positions on SyriaIranYemenRussiaNorth KoreaAfghanistanGaza, and previous US regime change interventions set her so far from the establishment orthodoxy that she’ll look as different from the other candidates as Ron Paul looked on the Republican debate stage.

2 – Make no mistake, it is this opposition to significant aspects of the US war machine that is the driving force behind the overwhelming bulk of the shrieking objection to Gabbard’s candidacy, not any of the more valid criticisms. We have learned from the mainstream acceptance of Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that some criticism of the status quo will be tolerated when it comes to domestic policy, but it’s an excommunicable offense when it comes to foreign policy. The idea that the US should forcefully control world affairs using the carrot of alliance and the stick of military violence is so ubiquitous in both of America’s mainstream parties that it takes a Washington Postcolumnist getting dismembered alive to start a debate about something so self-evidently evil as the Saudi-led destruction of Yemen.

3 – Foreign policy is undeniably the area in which the greater part of US government depravity takes place, and as far as America’s permanent government is concerned it is by far the most important. Forcing a debate on an issue you’re not even supposed to bring up on mainstream media will get a lot of ordinary Americans asking questions that very powerful individuals don’t want asked. The DNC went from scheduling over 20 debates in 2008 to trying to limit it to six in 2016 because they didn’t want Sanders’ excellent domestic policy ideas getting out to the public and making their coronated status quo candidate look bad. Gabbard could have the same impact on foreign policy in an audience that has been aggressively propagandized by MSNBC warmongering.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Urges Congress To Oppose Authorization for War Against Iran – Antiwar.com Blog

Posted by M. C. on May 23, 2018

More war culture

https://www.antiwar.com/blog/2018/05/22/rep-tulsi-gabbard-urges-congress-to-oppose-authorization-for-war-against-iran/

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) spoke on the floor today urging support for her amendment in the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that upholds Congress’s constitutional power to declare war. The congresswoman’s amendment strikes the language of Section 1225 of the FY2019 NDAA that authorizes the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of State to develop and implement a strategy to counter the “destabilizing activities of Iran” and only afterwards inform Congress. The amendment will be on the House floor for a vote tomorrow, May 23. Read the rest of this entry »

Gabbard: Trump should talk to North Korea ‘immediately’ after Hawaii false alarm – POLITICO

Posted by M. C. on January 15, 2018

Gabbard speaks the truth and has foreign policy common sense. It is a wonder McCain and the pentagram have allowed her to stay in office. 

Don’t hold your breath for any denuclearization. NK will remain nuclear because of what happened to Iraq and Libya after they agreed with US to forego nuclear development.

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/01/14/hawaii-false-alarm-gabbard-trump-korea-340293

 “Our country’s history of regime change war has led countries like North Korea to develop and hold on to these nuclear weapons because they see it as their only deterrent against regime change. And this is what’s important for President Trump to recognize,” she said.

“It is critical that we end our policy, the regime change wars, to provide that credible guarantee that the United States is not going to go in and topple the North Korean regime so that these conversations can begin toward denuclearization.”

The Sacrifice of Tulsi Gabbard – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on February 16, 2017

https://lewrockwell.com/2017/02/david-gornoski/sacrifice-tulsi-gabbard/

The leftist media outlets incessantly questioning Gabbard’s call for peace and an end to US-backed terrorism in Syria don’t care if our intervention has destroyed cities and murdered and raped thousands. They only care about the social status points they get in social circles where being seen outraged at airport arrival lines is more important than stopping mass murder for profit and power.
A politician that deserves a little respect.
