Why I can no longer support Tulsi Gabbard

As many of my readers know, I’ve been a staunch defender of Tulsi Gabbard in the past. I defended her from endless attacks from neocons attacking her for visiting Syria to try to bring peace to there. No politician is perfect of course, not even Tulsi or Bernie prior to this vote. However I am staunchly principled in my ideological beliefs. I will not carry water, There are a few issues that I view as unforgivable and pushing war with Iran, Russia, and North Korea. And Tulsi did the unforgivable. She voted for H.R. 3364: Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act. She was not the only person to vote for it, every Democrat and every Republican, minus three, voted for the bill. 419-3 Funny how we always hear that bipartisanship in Congress is dead, but bills that matter like this pass with by veto proof votes. A similar bill to this (excluding North Korea sanctions) passed the US Senate, with only Bernie Sanders and Rand Paul voting against it.

When Trump signs this bill into law this week, and he will because it is veto proof, we could be looking at the unraveling of the world order the likes of which. It brings heavy sanctions on Iran, basically killing the Iran deal. Russia is getting hit hard, and so will the EU because they rely on Russian oil. North Korea is already sanctioned into oblivion, but this will hurt the peace talks South Korea is doing with North Korea. Sanctions are an act of war, that is a fact. The oil embargo FDR enacted on the Japanese over the invasion of French Indochina lead directly to Pearl Harbor.

The fact the DemoRAT Party voted in full support, without a single Democrat voting against it, shows their #resistance to Trump is nothing more than a show. After all they had approved his cabinet members. The Republicans and Democrats of the Congress are not opposing Trump, if they really opposed Trump they would have arrested him under charges of war crimes, corruption, the emolument clause, etc. Trump is simply the American empire taking the mask off, that’s why the so called “deep state” “hates” Trump. I expect the #resistance will soon make Jeff Sessions their new champion because Trump will probably fire him for not covering up his crimes well enough. Yet Democrats will ignore all of the awful stuff Sessions did as AG, from police to cannabis policies.

Readers note: I would still vote for Gabbard over MOST Democratic candidates in a presidential primary, but I don’t know if I could vote for her in the general after this vote.

Nixon faced impeachment, not over blowing up the 1968 Vietnam peace deal and extending the Vietnam War, killing millions more people, or bombing Cambodia, or propping up various dictatorships world wide, but because he broke into the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee. It had nothing to do with the REAL crimes of Nixon. As Noam Chomsky pointed, Watergate only happened because Nixon threatened one faction in the capitalist state, the Democratic Party.

Now we are seeing the same thing happen again. Trump has expanded the usage of drones, planning on deploying 3,500 US troops in Afghanistan, thousands of US troops in Syria and Somalia for the first time, giving Saudi Arabia a 100 billion dollar arms deal, supporting various other dictatorships world wide, attacking the sovereign state of Syria over a chemical false flag attack, dropping MOAB in Afghanistan killing unknown number of people, and various other war crimes. And what do Democrats and Republicans have to say about all this? Radio silence.

When Napoleon was defeated, he was exiled to Saint Helena. As a 1919 British report on war crimes note “Napoleon was not charged with having during the Hundred Days carried on war contrary to the usages of civilized nations.” This was mainly because the Great Powers that defeated Napoleon didn’t want to be charged themselves with war crimes if they were defeated. It would only be after World War II, with the modern concept of war crime was further developed with the Nuremberg Trials and the International Military Tribunal for the Far East 1946. And since 1945, US has never been convicted for war crimes in a international war crimes tribunal.

Trump is a lying scumbag piece of human shit. He out right lied, claiming he never told the Russians anything, but later revealed that he did revealed classified information to the Russians about airlines and information about ISIS. Now it is revealed that he fired James Comey for investigating Michael Flynn, not for his handling the Hillary Clinton emails. Since becoming president, Trump has done everything that he criticized Hillary Clinton for and more.

Now how many in MSM or the US government are calling Trump a war criminal who should face life imprisonment without parole? Not a single one I can think of, because that would implicit them as well, along with every living US president. The REAL crimes of Donald Trump will never see an international war crimes tribunal. This is why there is not two parties in the US, but one, the war party. Chris Hedges pointed out correctly when he said “In mainstream discussion, it is either do we bomb Syria or do we bomb Syria and deploy US ground troops?”

Why is murdering thousands of people worldwide via US troops and bombs any less different from a common murder? Democrats and the so called “#Resistance” are not fighting Trump. Why would they fight Trump? Impeaching Trump would be suicide for Democrats because he’s so awful that it will be a Democratic landslide win in 2018 not seen for Democrats since 2008. The people fighting Trump include Code Pink protesting Senate conformation hearings of Trump cabinet picks that Democrats voted for, or protesting as air ports over the Muslim ban, or Sally Hates refusing the orders of Donald Trump. That is the real resistance.

ATH 2-13-17 Esha from Twitter

J30 and I were delighted to have Esha on the show!! Her wit and knowledge about politics and hypocrisy are always welcome, we talk Cory Booker, Majority Report, Jimmy Dore and more!! Majority Report’s Matthew Film Guy talked some smack about another Reefercake democratic party slam / reefer rock song….in short action packed!

Keep your government hands off of Ayn Rand's Medicare, but reform reefer with Rand Paul

Ayn Rand, author of the libertarian bible, “Atlas Shrugged”, is being called out at www.allthehypocrisy.com

I don't blame her one bit for collecting Medicare and social security, now that she is old and sick with cancer.

What I don't understand is why she didn't come out and say something about it to her delusional followers who insist that government insistence is evil. Just come out and say, “you know what, I was wrong, these programs are valuable and needed”. The sad truth is that she may have been too deranged and senile to be able put two and two together. Regardless, Ayn, you are a hypocrite, and your book sounds like it sucks. Tell me folks, is “Atlas Shrugged” worth reading or is it the tired cliche that it sounds like?

Rand Paul might have been named after her, eh? Libertarians are religious like that. But I have to give Rand Paul the nod for supporting reefer reform, which anyone in their right mind knows is long overdue. Whoever the democrat is who ran against him, the guys was a douchebag, anti-pot supremecist, hypocrite.

If you want to put a test to a democrat, simply find out their feelings on reefer reform. Remember this poem:

Reefer reform, shall be the norm.
You oppose the herb, get kicked to the curb.
