Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), the maverick Democratic presidential contender for 2020 who regularly bucks her Russophobic party’s orthodoxy on foreign affairs, has folded to the left-wing mob and now supports the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump over his correspondence with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“[U]nfortunately, I believe that if we do not proceed with the inquiry, it will set a very dangerous precedent,” Gabbard said on Friday. “Future presidents, as well as anyone in positions of power in the government, will conclude that they can abuse their position for personal gain, without fear of accountability or consequences.”
“So it is unfortunate, but necessary, that I speak in support of the inquiry into the President’s alleged abuse of power in relation to his interactions with Ukraine’s leaders,” she added.
A rough transcript of the conversation between Trump and Zelensky was released publicly on Wednesday by the White House, and the complaint filed by a CIA whistle-blower regarding Trump’s alleged inappropriate behavior was released to the public on Thursday.
Previously, Gabbard had indicated that she didn’t support impeaching President Trump because of the damage she felt it would do to the nation.
“Most people reading through that transcript are not going to find that extremely compelling cause to throw out a president that won an election in 2016,” Gabbard said on Wednesday.
“Look, Donald Trump is corrupt — he is unfit to serve our country as president. He is unqualified to serve our country as commander-in-chief, I’m running for president to defeat him,” she added. “I just think it’s so important for our country to be able to move forward to bridge these divides that it be the American people that make this decision.”
She had been a firm opponent of impeaching President Trump, noting correctly on how the move would severely damage national unity.
“I’ve been consistent in saying I believe that impeachment at this juncture would be terribly divisive for the country at a time when we are already extremely divided,” Gabbard said.
“I think it’s important to beat Donald Trump, that’s why I’m running for president,” she added. “But I think it’s the American people who need to make their voices heard making that decision.”
However, her principled beliefs went out the window on Friday due to political pressure from her radicalized constituents. Gabbard, who had gained a following among right-wingers for her willingness to tell the truth, has shown that she is just another lying Democrat.

Josh Hawley Introduces Resolution Against China’s New National Security Law to Punish Hong Kong
Hawley is focusing intently on the red menace.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) introduced a resolution on Thursday to oppose China’s new national security law meant to punish Hong Kong and quash their ongoing rebellion against the totalitarian communist state.
— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) May 21, 2020
Hawley has long been an advocate of Hong Kong freedom protesters throughout their struggle against Chinese tyranny, which has been sidelined in large part due to the ever-so-convenient Wuhan virus outbreak. Hawley visited Hong Kong last year to talk to the people on the ground and gave a rousing floor speech highlighting their historic struggle.
He said during his speech: “I want to share something that the reverend Chu Yiu-ming said about liberty about democracy. He says it so beautifully. These are his words: “We strive for democracy because democracy strives for freedom and equality and universal love. Political freedom is more than loyalty to a state. Political freedom professes human dignity. Every single person living in a community possesses unique potentials and unique powers capable of making a unique contribution to society.”’
“That’s extraordinary and he’s exactly right, and Hongkonger’s know it, and that’s what they’re standing for, and that’s what they’re fighting for,” Hawley added. “And, Mr. President, the people of Hong Kong deserve our support, and they are depending on our support.”
China announced yesterday that they were passing a edict meant to crush dissent in Hong Kong, with no input allowed from the city itself. China has paid lip service regarding Hong Kong’s autonomy for decades, but they are now removing the facade completely.
“Beijing has opted for the most risky route,” said Ho-Fung Hung, who works as a professor of international relations for Johns Hopkins University. “It will show the world that ‘one country, two systems’ is, if not already over, almost over.”
“It will be very difficult for anyone, especially the United States, to say Hong Kong is still autonomous and viable,” Hung added.
China is denying that they are taking control over Hong Kong and putting out communist propaganda that their Draconian power-grab will actually improve relations.
“We will ensure the long-term stability of ‘one country, two systems,’ ” said Wang Yang, leader of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, which convenes every year to advise the Chinese government.
“We will continue to support the improvement of the implementation of the systems and mechanisms of the constitution and Basic Law,” he added.
It is unlikely that anyone is willing to believe the Chinese lip service at this point. Hawley is also calling on the globalist United Nations to pass a resolution condemning China’s behavior as well.
