TULSI on TUCKER: ‘Clear Bias in Place’ from Debate Moderators

Tulsi Gabbard aired her grievances with the establishment-aligned press on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Published

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) joined Tucker Carlson on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Thursday where she denounced the moderators of the first round of Democratic Primary debates for a clear bias.

Carlson noted that despite the fact that Gabbard was advocating for a sane, non-interventionist foreign policy, which viewers apparently liked based on the fact that she was the most Googled candidate during the debate, she was not given much time to speak. Rather, the most time was allocated to the establishment Democrats on stage, namely Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and and Cory Booker (D-N.J.).

So, why does it seem like the candidates with unpopular ideas get the most time to speak?

“It shows there is a clear bias in place,” Gabbard said. “I made the most of every minute that I had. I wish I had more time to address these important issues.”

She then continued to advocate for her policy position on the Middle East.

She said:

“We hear a lot of politicians say this same argument – that, well, we’ve gotta stay engaged in the world otherwise we’ll be isolationists – as though the only way the United States can engage with other countries is by blowing them up, or strangling them with economic sanctions. By smashing them and trying to overthrow their governments. This is exactly what’s wrong with the whole premise and the whole view with which too many politicians, too many leaders in this country are viewing the United States role in the world. How about the United States be a leader in the world, work out differences and build relationships with negotiations and diplomacy and finding common interests and seeing how we can work together so we can stop sending our men and women in uniform into harm’s way, serving in missions that do not serve the interests of the American people, that make our country less safe and actually end up causing more harm and more damage to people in the countries where we wage these wasteful regime-change wars? That’s the kind of change in leadership I’m seeking to bring as president.”

She also named the “NeoCons in the Trump administration” and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as well as Saudi Arabia, and said that all three “have created a situation where it’s going to be difficult to avoid a war in Iran.”

DESPERATION: Never Trumpers Float Romney/Bloomberg as ‘the Unity Ticket America Deserves’

How pathetic are these guys?

Published

on

The “Never Trump” brain trust over at The Bulwark has unveiled their antidote to stop the President they hate so much in this year’s election: a “unity ticket” consisting of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) as a presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as his running mate.

Author Neal Simon made the argument that this potential third-party ticket would appeal to independents in an op/ed published on Monday.

“Senator Romney’s entrance into the presidential race wouldn’t just give the vital center of the electorate a home—it would stand a chance to break a system that is stacked against independents and third party candidates,” Simon argued.

He compared Romney’s potential to that of French President Emmanuel Macron, the reviled ruler who has populist Yellow Vest protesters rioting against his unpopular style of governance every weekend.

“And as Emmanuel Macron showed in France, standing up a new party and winning a presidential election in one motion is not impossible,” Simon wrote.

Simon posited that by putting Bloomberg on his ticket as Vice President, Romney could essentially buy the election, which is what Bloomberg is basically trying to do right now with his run for the Democratic presidential nomination.

“A Romney-Bloomberg ticket would be a first in modern American politics: A bipartisan unity ticket running under the banner of an independent third party,” he wrote.

Simon’s premise is predicated off of an assumption that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will win the Democrat presidential nomination. He believes that populism taking over the Republican and Democrat parties would open the door for a centrist revolution that could be led by Romney and Bloomberg.

“It would give both disgruntled Republicans who feel their party has become lost in Trump’s personality cult and Democrats who feel their party is lurching too far left towards a socialist revolution a voice on the ballot that reflects a popular idea of how the country should be run,” he concluded.

Simon, who was a failed independent candidate in the state of Maryland for the U.S. Senate in 2018, recently published a book titled, “Contract to Unite America: Ten Reforms to Reclaim Our Republic.” He is using the words of George Washington in his manifesto to defeat the new age of populist politics and return to the days of old.

“Capitalizing on personal insight derived from Simon’s political campaign along with extensive research, Contract to Unite America provides specific, practical solutions for an improved government and a better tomorrow,” Simon’s book description reads.

Unfortunately for Simon and the “Bulwark” neocons, the public has had enough of status quo politicians and does not want to return to the George W. Bush era. The dream ticket of Romney/Bloomberg is not likely to come to fruition.
