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.
“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.”
“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.
