SCREWED: Democrats Change the Rules to Disqualify Tulsi Gabbard From Presidential Debate Stage
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), the antiwar candidate who has angered the Democratic establishment throughout her quixotic presidential run, will be denied the debate stage again despite qualifying under their original rules.
Gabbard had earned the delegate needed to appear on the debate stage after a strong showing in the American Samoa primary, which earned her two delegates. This should have given her a place on the stage during the next Democrat presidential debate, but they changed the rules yet again to disqualify her.
On Friday, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) changed their qualifications to make it so only candidates who have earned 20 percent of the total apportioned delegates as of Mar. 15 could appear. This will leave Gabbard in the lurch yet again.
The Mar. 15 debate in Phoenix, Ariz. will feature only Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and former Vice President Joe Biden, as the two career politicians duke it out over who will face off against President Trump in November.
Before the rule change was announced, Gabbard posted on Twitter about her joy to advocate for a non-interventionist foreign policy and comment on other key issues of the day.
I welcome the opportunity to raise & discuss the foreign policy challenges we face, like the new cold war/nuclear arms race, Turkey's efforts to drag the U.S. into a war with Russia over Syria, the coronavirus, & more. Domestic policy cannot be separated from foreign policy. https://t.co/jgVxSz1huX

Gabbard has been getting screwed by the Democrat establishment since the beginning of her campaign. She has been fearless in how she has struck back against her many powerful foes, including excuse-making shrew and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
“Clinton falsely stated that Tulsi—an Army National Guard officer and United States Congresswoman who has spent her entire adult life serving this country—is a ‘Russian asset.’ Clinton’s false assertions were made in a deliberate attempt to derail Tulsi’s presidential campaign,” Gabbard’s defamation lawsuit against Clinton states.
Clinton made disgraceful and unfounded comments against Gabbard while appearing on a podcast last year, which earned her the defamation suit filed by Gabbard.
“She’s a favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far and that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she is also a Russian asset,” Clinton said.
“They know they can’t win without a third-party candidate, and so I do not know who it is going to be but I can guarantee you they will have a vigorous third-party challenge in the key states that they most need it,” she added.
Gabbard hopes to receive $50 million in damages from the illicit Clinton empire through her defamation suit, which would give her a nice war chest for a future presidential campaign to pull the Democrat Party back from extremism and insanity.
