Democrat Insiders Fear Tulsi Gabbard Will Run Independent Presidential Candidacy in 2020

Please do it, mommy!

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.

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.

After a lengthy obstructionist attempt to delay the confirmation, Democrats proved unable to stop a floor vote on Barrett’s confirmation on Monday night. Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer attempted a last minute filibuster in a race against time- claiming the eventual confirmation of Barrett represented “one of the darkest days in the history of the Senate,” but Mitch McConnell ultimately arranged a vote.

Josh Hawley had earlier hailed the confirmation of a justice with a strong pro-life track record.

The vote to confirm Barrett as a SCOTUS Justice passed by a count of 52-48, with Republican Senators Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski voting in favor of Barrett’s confirmation. Maine’s Susan Collins was the only Republican senator to vote against Barrett’s confirmation, refusing to budge on her stance that the next President should appoint Ginsburg’s replacement.

Judge Barrett is expected to be sworn in as an Associate Justice by Justice Clarence Thomas at the White House on Monday night.
