Tulsi Gabbard For VP?

Original Article

Posted By: RockyTCB, 3/26/2024 7:38:26 AM

Donald Trump either has a short list or a long one, depending on the media source, in his search for a running mate. Either way, he could do a lot worse than Tulsi Gabbard. At least she knows, unlike many establishment Republicans, just how malicious Democrats are, since she used to be one and saw the depravity up close. Maybe Trump will choose Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, or New York Rep. Elise Stefanik. He might turn to Ben Carson, a Cabinet official in his previous administration, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, or South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem. All would be

There's a lot about her I like -- but not her political positions. Maybe RFK will choose her as his running mate.

Marco Rubio, Yes. Tulsi, NO! We need to remember we're lookin for someone who can step in the President's Chair should something happen to Him. Marco would be good as would Tom Cotton. JMHO

All of this speculation and guesswork is killing me, stop it. After Mike Pence, literally anybody will be an improvement and fortunately there are many good people from which to choose. If Trump avoids everybody who constantly attempts to convince us of their strong religious faith, it will be okay. Two rules, no box-checking and no RINOs.

Trump should stick to his criterion that the VP would be a good president. It ain't Tulsi Gabbard.

Great two-hour interview online with Tucker worth listening to. Another with Joe Rogan from some time ago. Was the Dems darling as a freshman, until she told them to pound sand. Destroyed Kamala with one comment at the first 2000 Dem debate. Army Reserve LTC accused of treason by Mitt Romney. Understand that a mini-Trump #2 isn't going to expand ticket appeal.

No. Not trustworthy. The VP this time around is going to have to be a pivotal position, and one that is closely aligned with the President’s agenda. He must be willing to do whatever is necessary to get this government to be accountable to we the people. We need a hatchet man who will clear out the radicals, dead weight, and demand accountability in all aspects from personnel to the demand of financial responsibility. We also need an excellent communicator. I still think Vivek would be great. He has been in the private sector and he is not enamored with politics but more interested in the bottom line. We don’t need someone whose first thought is how anything looks politically. His focus should be on the country and what is best for it and the people who make it work.

The level of corruption in the DC swamp is off the scale. While I don't have anything against Gabbard (other than the fact she was a dim before) and have never met her, I'm not particularly interested in a political transplant. Trump's VP will have his/her hands full helping to close/re-engineer several federal agencies. This individual must have the tenacity and stick-to-it schtick like Trump does.

J. D. Vance is young but from reading his book and following his behavior in the senate, perhaps it is time for a person who has lived in our real society and seems to have integrity as well as intelligence. I’ve heard that he gets along well with Trump, which suggests that he has a sense of humor, as Trump does.

I like Vivek R--he's savvy and not afraid of confrontation. I also think he'd be willing to step up and tell the President (privately) if he were sliding off the rails. Trump's strength is his courage and love for this country; and his weakness is choosing the wrong people to partner with him in his vision (example Mike Pence). And yes, after 4 years as Trump's wingman, I think he would be an electable POTUS.

Couple of things. Tulsi sounds good on FNC, but she voted for at least one if not two Trump impeachments as a House member. Maybe VA secretary or NATO ambassador. And the running mate will NOT be a Floridian. It's a bit constutionally complicated, but basically the electors in the Electoral College from a state cannot cast votes for a President AND a Vice President from their own state. Kristi Noem still is my choice.

This Gabbard idea was floated and discussed on these pages last week. It was surprising how many self-proclaimed Trump supporters posted "no former democrats, ever!" One would have to assume that they did not know Trump, at age 63, was a registered democrat, not switching back to the GOP until 2009, after Obama was sworn in as our 46th president. Some of the same posters proudly post how they are 'finished with Republicans and will never vote for one again,' acting as if Trump is running on a MAGA party ticket, not as a Republican, even after he was our most recent Republican president, at least until the draconian Covid rules, some clearly unconstitutional, facilitated massive ballot box stuffing via the U.S. mail, that resulted in Biden being elevated to the office. Two of our most effective presidents, Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump, were former democrats and I voted for them both, although I prefer a conservative ideology over populist ideology. Given Trump's record as president #45, I have no qualms about voting for him again, as he is clearly the superior choice in 2024. While I often disagree with some of his statements, if he chooses as his running mate, Gabbard, they would still get my support. Her military background and experience in the Hawaii and U.S. House of Representatives, only strengthens the ticket. Whomever he chooses, it is his choice to make and unlike his first term, when his supporters claim he had several cabinet-level selections pushed on him by RINOs, his executive background in business and in office should enable him to make wise choices, outside of RINO influence.

Wow, all of these posts and no one mentioned Tim Scott. That said, NO to him too. He probably deserves it more because he can't stop talking about how loyal he is to Trump. He's probably too nice. Also NO to any woman and Ramaswamy, among others, but I'd rather Trump choose Gabbard than Ramaswamy, who reminds me too much of Obama, a smooth talker, but not trustworthy, imo. It will be interesting to see who is finally chosen.

The tycoons funding the ferocious – and mostly artificially engineered – student demonstrations in support of the genocidal, Iranian-financed terrorist organization Hamas, and its goal of destroying the state of Israel, did not attain their money through any entrepreneurial excellence and innovation on their parts. They are, rather, in one way or another, trust fund heirs – Leftist Lord Fauntleroys, if you will – or wheeler dealers of the commodities markets, cannibalizing on the misfortune of others around the globe rather than producing new products or services; or shifty hotel magnates with a lack of vision as stationary as their properties.

President Joe Biden loves to brag about the stellar job growth on his watch. He was at it again Friday after the government reported 272,000 jobs were created in May, beating economists’ expectations by a wide margin. “The great American comeback continues,” Biden enthused. “On my watch, 15.6 million more Americans have the dignity and respect that comes with a job.” But this “great jobs news” is entirely a fiction. The truth is that the job growth under Biden is much closer to zero than it is to 15.6 million. Let’s break it down.

Almost exactly 50 years ago, the Supreme Court ordered President Richard Nixon to turn over White House tapes that he had refused to release for nearly a year, citing executive privilege. On July 24, 1974, the court unanimously rejected Nixon’s executive privilege claim. Sixteen days later, Nixon resigned. Fast forward to this year, and President Joe Biden is refusing to release tapes of his interviews with Special Counsel Robert Hur about his handling of classified documents, citing, as Nixon did, executive privilege, with an added twist about the risk of “deep fakes.” Biden is, in fact, so determined to keep the tapes secret

The Israeli Defense Force (IDF) issued two separate announcements relating to its discovery of the bodies of seven Hamas hostages, all apparently murdered during their abduction on Oct. 7. Separately, families released video of the capture and brutal treatment that day of five bound, bloodied and bruised female IDF soldiers, with kidnappers suggesting they will be subject to violence and sexual assault. One woman’s father indicated the release was a “wakeup call to the world” of their continued captivity and suspected abuse.

The stunning felony conviction of former President Donald Trump garnered headlines around the world and created sharp political arguments across the U.S. But did it affect the presidential race? The answer is yes. It seems to have actually helped Trump, the June I&I/TIPP Poll shows. The poll was taken from Wednesday, May 29, through Friday, May 31. The verdict against Trump in New York state court was rendered on Thursday, May 30.

When candidate Joe Biden promised while on the campaign trail that “we’re going to end fossil fuel,” could anyone have guessed that emptying the nation’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve was part of the plan? Maybe Biden had that in mind all along – enact policies that raise the price of gasoline, dip into the reserves to lower prices for consumers, then finally wring them dry for, putatively, the same reason. That’s one way to get rid of quite a lot of fossil fuel. The federal Strategic Petroleum Reserve is “the world’s largest supply of emergency crude oil,” says the Energy Department. It

The judge declared multiple statutes related to puberty blockers, hormone treatments, and surgeries to be unconstitutional. The law was aimed at preventing medical facilities from prescribing irreversible “gender-affirming” treatments to young children. Several studies have shown these treatments to be not only ineffective but harmful to minors suffering from gender dysphoria. Nevertheless, the judge struck down the measure.

Biden wins about 53% of the time in the site’s computer generated analyses compared to 47% for Trump. “Trump has a lead in most key swing states (but) they are close enough that a small amount of movement — or the polls being a little too favorable to Republicans — could result in President Joe Biden’s reelection,” the site said in explaining the model.

The earliest known copy of an incredible story about Jesus performing a miracle as a child has been discovered scrawled on an ancient Egyptian manuscript. The 2,000-year-old papyrus - a material that predates paper - tells the lesser-known story of the 'vivification of the sparrows,' when the five-year-old Messiah is said to have turned clay pigeons into live birds, a tale also referred to as the 'second miracle'. The clumsiness of the handwriting led the researchers to believe it was likely written as part of a class exercise in a school or religious community in 4th or 5th Century Egypt, which was a Christian society in those times.
