Hawaii House Democrat Tulsi Gabbard announced on Friday that she would be running for President in the 2020 election.
Gabbard told CNN’s Van Jones that she would be making a formal announcement within the week in an interview set to be aired tomorrow on the fake news network.
Gabbard has represented Honolulu’s congressional district in the U.S House since 2013. Her Presidential campaign is unlikely to gain traction in an already extremely crowded Democratic Primary, but it’s possible that her candidacy could become a punching bag of sorts for corporate Democrats seeking a target with less devoted followers than Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
Gabbard has made a name for herself in national politics by challenging uniparty pro-war establishment consensus from a place within the Democratic Party. Gabbard has spoken in detail about keeping the United States out of military adventurism and regime change plots, most prominently in regards to Syria. She visited the country in 2013, having met with the nation’s dictatorial President, Bashar al-Assad. Gabbard also comes to an anti-war perspective from her experiences in the military, having served in the Iraq War with the Hawaii National Guard.
Gabbard’s advocacy against Middle East regime change efforts is comparable in focus to leading anti-war Republican figures like Rand Paul. It’s theoretically possible that Gabbard’s campaign could represent a Democratic equivalent of the campaign Paul’s father, Ron, ran in 2012. She’s attracted opposition from figures associated with the Democratic Party establishment, incensed with her opposition to a corporately controlled Democratic Party.
Gabbard was one of the first federal legislators to endorse Bernie Sanders in the 2016 election. It’s very likely that her Presidential campaign would occupy a similar tier of the Democratic Party with the democratic socialist Senator. Lacking Sanders’ elevated national profile, it’s possible that she could be pushed out of the race early if he were to run and attract many of her potential supporters to a second Presidential campaign.
Gabbard is one of the first individuals belonging to the Hindu religion to become somewhat of a national political figure.
New York Young Republicans Call for Order After Chaos at the Capitol
Order Must be Restored
On January 6, 2020 the New York Young Republican Club issued a statement calling for an instant restoration of law and order after protests escalated at the United States Capitol.
The protests were originally in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to challenge the results of an election marked by massive irregularities. Several protesters pushed the envelope by breaking into the Capitol and interrupting the Senate and House of Representatives proceedings.
The Republican organization issued the following statement on the incident:
Today, what we see at the United States Capitol the result of American elites permitting general malaise to foment tangible destruction. We unequivocally condemn the interruption of Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. Anyone who breached the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because destruction and vandalism of property cannot be permitted by any actor.
We are the party of Law and Order, and we expect citizens all to operate in accordance with these standards.
U.S. policymakers will have to take a long hard look in the mirror. The lack of leadership has created a vicious cycle of radicalization that is increasingly getting out of control. Such developments could put America’s political system on the ropes if not addressed properly.
On the Republican side, there must be a clean break during the 2022 primaries, where the overwhelming majority of incumbents should face nationalist challengers. The current leadership has clearly failed and must be replaced.
