Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) is threatening to boycott next week’s Democratic Party debate because she feels her party’s establishment is “rigging” the proceedings against anti-establishment candidates such as herself.
“The 2016 Democratic Primary election was rigged by the DNC and their partners in the corporate media against Bernie Sanders,” Gabbard said in a statement.
“In this 2020 election, the DNC and corporate media are rigging the election again, but this time against the American people in the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada,” she added.
Gabbard did not qualify for the September debate, but has qualified for the debate that is scheduled later this month. She broke the necessary threshold of 130,000 donors and two percent in at least four polls needed to participate.
However, in November, they are upping those thresholds to 165,000 donors and three percent support in four polls. This would likely exclude Gabbard and other marginal contenders, and she believes this is an attack on freedom of choice by the Democratic Party machine that wants to control the process.
“They are attempting to replace the roles of voters in the early states, using polling and other arbitrary methods which are not transparent or democratic, and holding so-called debates which are not debates at all but rather commercialized reality television meant to entertain, not inform or enlighten,” Gabbard said. “In short, the DNC and corporate media are trying to hijack the entire election process.”
Fellow non-traditional Democratic Party presidential candidate, Marianne Williamson, echoed Gabbart’s sentiments on Twitter.
I have great respect for Tulsi for saying such inconvenient truth. She is absolutely correct. https://t.co/HDRV5avPMO

Gabbard is perhaps the only Democratic Party candidate with the courage to take on the corporate establishment. She is also suing Google, accusing the Big Tech giant of censoring her following a strong presidential debate performance earlier this year:
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) launched a lawsuit against Google, one of the largest and most egregious big tech companies, for allegedly censoring her campaign since its inception using the same tools the company uses to systematically censor conservatives.
According to Gabbard’s legal team, Google has been instrumental in the censorship of her fledgling campaign. Gabbard, the only anti-war, anti-interventionism candidate running in the Democrat Party, claims Google has systematically worked against her campaign since its launch.
Her lawsuit, available online, maintains that “Since at least June 2019, Google has used its control over online political speech to silence Tulsi Gabbard, a candidate millions of Americans want to hear from.” The lawsuit goes on, “With this lawsuit, Tulsi seeks to stop Google from further intermeddling in the 2020 United States Presidential Election”
Gabbard is proving to be an interesting spoiler candidate in a Democratic Party field obsessed with opposing President Donald Trump’s every move and little else.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
