Tulsi Gabbard: ‘When I Look out
at our Country, I Don’t See Deplorables’

Original Article

Posted By: M2, 10/16/2019 5:54:46 AM

2020 White House candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) said during Tuesday’s CNN-New York Times debate that she doesn’t see “deplorables” when she meets Americans across the country. A partial transcript is as follows: ANDERSON COOPER: We would like you to tell us about a friendship that you’ve had that would surprise us, what impact it had on you, and your beliefs. […] REP. TULSI GABBARD: Where I come from in Hawaii, many of you know we greet each other with “aloha.” The challenge before us is our country is very divided. Donald Trump must be defeated. But we must do more than defeat Donald Trump.

That’s mighty white of her.

Tulsi is still a democrat. She may be more a more reasonable one but if the chips are down, she will always stay true to her progressive roots.

The Dem leadership will not let her advance with a bad attitude like that. Imagine - thinking of the average American as non-deplorable!

Quid Pro Joe Bite Me USED to be the most stable of the demonrat socialists---probably would be almost qualified as a very liberal RINO of sorts, but then he felt like he needed to be "more hip" and let the media take him even more to the psychotic dark socialist path. Tulsi is the more conservative choice if there was even ONE candidate running on the demonrat side, but she has no chance, because she is not LIEBERAL enough. It is plainly obvious that NONE of them respect the "checks and balances" the Founders put in the Constitution to protect the individual from a Tyrannical and dictatorial nominee. Nobama and FDR were as close to a dictator we have ever seen. The American people by and large have not lost their minds YET, but this media-driven "false reality" effort is working on the weak-minded and ill-educated. Gabbard is the closest candidate to reality now the Bite Me has shown some serious mental lapses even though the media and most of the candidates have circled the wagons to protect him using his office for monetary gain. Texas Governor Perry was dispatched by the media when he couldn't remember the last thing on a list he had memorized in his stump speech. Old Joe couldn't remember the phone number for campaign donations, but he still stands....

Trump didn't see deplorables either but you hate his guts enough to have to be rid of him and defeat him for being a great President. It doesn't make sense to me...aloha to you too. Is she acknowledging we are deplorable but she doesn't see it? What a bozo clown.

She’s the only one that’s not promising socialism. She wants to get our troops out of the Middle East. So does our President. So do those of us that support him. It’s amazing how much influence the military industrial complex has over our elected officials including Sen Graham. She did say Donald Trump had the blood of the Kurds on his hands. Sorry Missy, you can’t have it both ways. Let’s just say she’s the least pitiful of that bunch of “real” deplorables!

Most liberal politicians do not see "deplorables" because all that they see are other liberals. It is the same with most of the media. That is why it was such a complete shock to them when Trump won. It must have been the Russians. There can't actually be real people in flyover country that support Trump.

This one is really never tracking in a straight line for more than 1 minute. Illogic seems to be her specialty. Say one thing that is completely at odds with the obvious facts of the situation, and then a couple of sentences later say something that is actually true. How can she keep all these total contridictions inside her head at the same time? Dingbat seems likely but a very strange one. Most dingbats are ALWAYS wrong, she is occasionally right, and yet finds no contradictions in her mishmash of "facts" some true and most untrue.

Women who support President Donald Trump are marching in Washington, DC, and across the country on Thursday with a message for Democrats: “Stop the Impeachment Now.” Women for America First organized the march which will take place around the Capitol building in D.C. and in dozens of other cities. “We want our President to know he is not alone and we stand with him,” an announcement of the march states. “Our President needs us more than ever before.

President Trump faced criticism on social media and from journalists after claiming the United States has a "shared political and cultural history" with Italy because of ancient Rome. During a press conference with Italian President Sergio Mattarella, Trump noted that Italy and the U.S. are bound together through shared ties to the ancient city, saying, "The United States and Italy are bound together by a shared cultural and political heritage dating back thousands of years to ancient Rome." The Founding Fathers of the U.S. had a well-documented affinity for the Roman republic, evidence of which is prevalent in American representative government and civic architecture.

Again, the Washington Post has been anything but subtle in its love for Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. Last week, the D.C.-based newspaper went into crisis management mode to downplay legitimate questions about the senator’s claim that she was fired in the 1970s for being “visibly pregnant.” It has become only more obvious since then. The Washington Post tweeted this week in promotion of a profile on Warren, “‘You knew, just by talking to her, she was going to be successful.’ She faced sexism, shed a husband and found her voice teaching law in Houston. This is where Liz Warren became Elizabeth Warren." Touching. I may weep.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell briefed Republicans in a closed-door session about how they would conduct a Senate trial if the House sends over articles of impeachment. Senate Republicans believe it is becoming increasingly likely, if not inevitable, that House Democrats will pass articles of impeachment against President Trump in the coming weeks. McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, on Wednesday gave fellow GOP lawmakers a tutorial on how to conduct a trial based on how the process proceeded in the past. “Every indication is that articles will be coming our way, eventually,” Sen. Kevin Cramer, a North Dakota Republican, said after the meeting.

Every time the Democratic presidential contenders take the stage, we witness a stunning display of the Democratic Party's ideological conversion to a Marxist-sponsored socialist cartel. In pursuit of utopian/egalitarian virtue, the party has adopted the language of the ideology and is growing perpetually out of sync with American liberties. In a frightening sense of déjà vu, the downsized American replicas of Leon Trotsky, Nikolai Bukharin, Clara Zetkin, and Rosa Luxemburg are seeking to impose the moralities of a flawed society through seductive promises of fairness and equality with an intensity and passion that rivals that of their precursors a century earlier.

Hillary Clinton, still suffering from delusions of adequacy, has a dream. It is that Democrats will beg her to run again and be their savior. After all, she recently celebrated her historic 2016 win against President Donald Trump during an interview with Judy Woodruff. Yes, the psychosis has progressed that far. Still, the lineup of Democrat candidates is so awful that Clinton is actually tied with Andrew Yang in third place in the PredictIt political prediction market. The betting market is responding to Clinton's not so subtle odor of desperation, as well as the apparent weakness of the field.

Today the big question in Washington is, will Democrats actually impeach a president of the United States without cause, without a crime? Scary, right? But we're told not to worry, because even if House Dems impeach, the GOP will stop it cold in the Senate. So desensitization worked. Just say "impeachment" over and over for three years until the threat that used to set off alarm bells now barely moves the needle. But even though people aren't up in arms, Washington's unholy trinity, (Democrats, media, and the Deep State) don't want their coup to look like a coup, so they gin up plausible offenses.

Democrats, always reliably anti-Trump, have now carved out a position for themselves of being the party of Pro-War Protest. They are passionately in favor of our continued military intervention in Syria. Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi apparently were aggressive in their meeting with President Trump, protesting his announced policy of withdrawing the small American military contingent in that country. Fake News ABC lent its support to the pro-war cause by providing phony footage of an artillery demonstration that it falsely claimed portrayed Kurds being slaughtered. Since the sixties, Democrats have generally preferred the antiwar side of any issue involving American military action.

President Trump is castigated for calling out “fake news” as “the enemy of the people.” Yet he is correct, and journalists reinforce Trump's view on an increasingly frequent basis. For the Washington Post, “Democracy dies in darkness” yet for the American people, their faith and trust in media is dying, not in darkness, but in the light of day, right before our eyes. I had the recent opportunity to watch filmmaker Joel Gilbert’s latest film, The Trayvon Hoax. Joel demonstrated a long-lost art, investigative journalism, and he did it in a fun and entertaining manner.

President Donald Trump’s “Buy American, Hire American” economy — with the tightest labor market in decades — has grown the wages of blue-collar workers more than any other income group, analysis finds. Though overall wage growth has seemed to slow down in recent months, hidden in the data is the surge in wages for America’s blue-collar and working-class who are gaining more in pay than all other income groups. Economic analysis by Indeed finds that while the highest wage earners have seen year-to-year wage growth of more than 2.5 percent, the lowest income wage earners have enjoyed almost double that growth.

The Democrat Party now represents the nation’s wealthiest citizens, while working-class Americans have flocked to the Republican Party over the last decade, analysis finds. In research produced by the Wall Street Journal, Democrats and Republicans have seemingly switched voter bases through the decades, shifting political positions on trade and immigration to benefit those voters. For instance, in 2008, Democrats pulled most of their votes from congressional districts with some of the least economic output and toward those with the highest economic output. Fast-forward to 2018, and Democrats now largely represent voters who live in districts with the largest economic output with only a sliver of low economic output districts.

During the October 15, Democrat debate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke made clear that AR-15 owners who refuse to hand over their guns will have them taken away. O’Rourke reiterated his plan to use a government-mandated buyback to confiscate privately-owned AR-15s and AK-47s. In so doing, he claimed that each AR-15 and AK-47 in private hands is a “potential instrument of terror.” CNN’s Anderson Cooper then asked O’Rourke how he plans to get people to hand over their rifles. O’Rourke responded by explaining that he expects complains with the mandatory buybacks. He said, “I expect my fellow Americans to follow the law. The same way we enforce any provision

During a panel alongside former President Bill Clinton at the Nir School of the Heart, Bush laid into Trump for his recent decision to withdraw up to 1,000 American troops from northeast Syria — fulfilling his longheld campaign promise to bring troops home after more than a decade of war. “An isolationist United States is destabilizing around the world,” Bush said, according to the Washington Post‘s Josh Rogin.

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts was the big winner Tuesday night in Westerville, Ohio in the most crowded presidential debate ever held. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., also delivered strong performances. Former Vice President Joe Biden and the other eight candidates on stage came out the losers in the three-hour Democratic presidential primary debate. Warren’s strong performance will likely solidify her frontrunner status ahead of Biden and Sanders. She emerged the clear winner of the night by showing she was sharp and prepared as she fended off attacks from candidates who were looking to cut into her polling lead.
