Tulsi Gabbard

The Odd Conservative Love Affair With Tulsi Gabbard

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The Gabbard Left and the Trump Right share the conclusion that our elite sucks and that it has forfeited any moral authority to lead our country, but the similarity ends there. She is not conservative and is not traditional. Just because she has doubts about offing babies in the third trimester, as opposed to supporting abortion until high school graduation, does not make her pro-life. She would take your guns, she would take your money, and she would generally make Barack Obama look like William F. Buckley. Don’t fall for Gabbard, because just because we agree on a few things does not mean her quirky brand of New Age socialism is acceptable.

Tulsi Gabbard: Canary in the Democratic Coal Mine

David Catron, The American Spectator

For a sense of how divorced the Democrats are from mainstream America, the collapse of Tulsi Gabbard’s presidential campaign is instructive. Gabbard is a liberal who supports banning so-called assault weapons, raising the minimum wage to $15, free college tuition, etc. But her positions on abortion and health care are relatively moderate. Moreover, she is circumspect about impeachment, the only responsible position for a sitting congresswoman, and supports withdrawing American troops from Syria. Thus, her poll numbers are tanking. If a liberal like Tulsi Gabbard is too moderate for today’s Democrats, they have no chance of beating Trump.

Can The Democrats Beat Trump With A Campaign Of Lies?

We agree with Rep. Gabbard that, in a field of noted prevaricators, Sen. Kamala Harris stands out as perhaps the biggest liar, but the fact of the matter is the Democratic Party’s entire campaign against President Trump is based on lies.

Memo to Trump: Trade Bolton for Tulsi

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The problem Gabbard presents for Democrats is that she takes positions that split her party, while her rivals prefer to talk about what unites the party, like the terribleness of Trump, free college tuition and soaking the rich. Given more airtime, she will present problems for the GOP as well. For the foreign policy Tulsi Gabbard is calling for is not far off from the foreign policy Donald Trump promised in 2016 but has since failed to deliver. We still have 2,000 troops in Syria, 5,000 in Iraq, 14,000 in Afghanistan. We just moved an aircraft carrier task force, B-52s and 1,000 troops to the Persian Gulf to confront Iran. We are about to impose sanctions on the Iranian foreign minister with whom we would need to negotiate to avoid a war.

The Democrats’ Mean Girls Problem

Few voters outside college campuses and the liberal Twitterverse are attracted to angry white feminists, sneering liberal arrogance, smug elite condescension, Hillary Clinton-style flip-floppers and scary socialist commissars – which pretty well sums-up the females in the Democratic field.

Donald Trump, The Peace President

Whether President Trump’s approach of dangling peace and prosperity in front of North Korea’s Kim Jong Un will achieve long-term peace remains to be seen, but it is certain that over the past 50-years the foreign policy establishment’s efforts in Korea have failed, where Trump has stopped the missile launches and nuclear tests. Americans should give peace, and President Trump a chance.

Hawaii's Democrats Screw Up, Liberal Media Blames Trump

While the false missile alert shows bungling state Democrats in Hawaii at their most incompetent, it also shows liberals and the establishment media at their most hypocritical. After eight years during which Obama was responsible for nothing, it now appears that President Trump is responsible for everything that goes wrong in the world.
