As the Democratic Party slips into extremism and insanity, only one of their presidential candidates stands out as an iconoclast: Tulsi Gabbard, the long-shot Hawaii Congresswoman who has consistently refused to embrace conspiracy theories about Russia.
Gabbard’s independent streak has Democratic Party insiders worried that she might flip following the presidential primaries, and run as an independent third-party candidate to give liberal voters a more authentic option at the polls in 2020.
“Hot take/prediction: Tulsi Gabbard is going to endorse Trump in the end,” The Hill correspondent Reid Wilson said in a Twitter post on Tuesday.
“My prediction: Tulsi runs as third-party Green candidate to help Trump win. I will take bets on this,” said Neera Tanden, who works as president of the Center for American Progress.
“Advice to the world: Don’t take Neera’s bet. She is 100% right on this,” said David Rothkopf, who was a former Clinton Administration appointee.
The Democratic Party establishment is freaking out because of attacks that Gabbard is lobbing at Kamala Harris, the California Senator who is perceived as one of the front-runners to win the nomination among a crowded Democratic field looking to face off against Trump next year.
“I think one of the things I’m most concerned with is Kamala Harris is not qualified to serve as commander-in-chief, and I can say this from a personal perspective as a soldier,” Gabbard said.
Gabbard, an anti-war liberal who once had a controversial meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, has found herself more and more at odds against a party fold that has jettisoned foreign policy restraint for naked jingoism. The Russophobic nature of the modern Democratic Party in the age of Trump has caused them to claim the “war party” crown from the Republicans.
The only way to fund these domestic programs is to end regime-change wars, say no to the new Cold War, and say no to the nuclear arms race. And that’s why I’m running for president. #TULSI2020

I understand the importance of national security as well as the high cost of war. As president, I’ll redirect the money now wasted in regime change wars & new cold war into healthcare, a green economy, education, & much more. https://t.co/J0MJ5zzAtf #Tulsi2020 pic.twitter.com/xDTcjNDfal

Gabbard’s independent third-party candidacy for the presidency in 2020 would likely help President Donald Trump secure four more years in the White House, but from the perspective of a principled non-interventionist like Gabbard who wants relations normalized with Russia and Syria, that might not be such a bad thing.

House Republicans Hoping to Get Americans Back to Work By End of April
It’s a aspiration, not a plan.
House Republicans are considering plans that would help Americans get back to work by the end of the month. Kevin Brady of Texas told reporters on a conference call that the caucus is preparing preliminary plans that phase the workforce back in at the end of April.
“Our focus is on locking down the virus while we’re taking the steps now to prepare to reopen the economy by the end of the month if the virus permits.”
Brady was careful to qualify that there’s no guarantee the public health situation in the United States would allow such a development.
“I think we should all expect the jobs, the unemployment in the GDP numbers to feel brutal over the short term. It’s because they are. This economy is taking hits like we’ve not seen in most of our lifetimes. But it is just a short-term hit.”
Initial social distancing guidelines set forth by the White House in conjunction with the CDC were extended from two weeks to April 30th earlier in the week, suggesting the executive branch may be cautiously looking towards the end of April to begin phasing out the unprecedented disruptions to everyday American life.
It is worth noting that an early cease to social distancing and commonsense measures to deter the spread of the Chinese coronavirus could prove to be even more harmful than the negative impacts to the economy since the beginning of the virus-related recession. This can’t be rushed. But the consequences of the economic damage are real, and all Americans should look to get everyday economic life up and running against as soon as possible.
