UPDATED (8/1/019): Tulsi Gabbard Gets It Right About Creepy Kamala Harris

Democrats, Elections, Foreign Policy, Homosexuality, Military, War

The Democratic representative for Hawaii, Tulsi Gabbard, has cautioned that California Sen. Kamala Harris’ lack of military experience would continue a “dangerous” cycle that would exacerbate the US “military industrial complex.”

Kamala’s spokesperson clawed back by bashing Gabbard’s past, peace-making efforts in the Middle East. Unlike kamala, Gabbard grasps that Bashar Assad is against ISIS and, with all his flaws, represents the civilized, pro-Christian option for Syria. (See “Lies About Putin, Syria & The Alawite Alliance.”)

VIA CNN:

Democratic Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has taken aim at presidential primary rival Sen. Kamala Harris, arguing the California Democrat “lacks the temperament” to be commander in chief.

“Kamala Harris is not qualified to serve as commander in chief and I can say this from a personal perspective as a soldier,” Gabbard said on Fox Sports Radio. “She has no background or experience in foreign policy and she lacks the temperament that is necessary for commander in chief.”

Harris has been the subject of increased attention after she made steep polling gains for confronting Democratic frontrunner former Vice President Joe Biden during the first round of presidential debates. Gabbard and Harris will share the debate stage during the second night of CNN’s Democratic primary debates on July 31.
Gabbard said Tuesday that Harris’ lack of military experience would continue a “dangerous” cycle that would exacerbate the US “military industrial complex.”

The anchor activists at CNN dislike Gabbard for her anti-war views and because she’s not as progressive as she’s “supposed to be” on the gay marriage and LGBTQ political production.

UPDATE (8/1/019):

#KamalaHarrisDestroyed is trending after Democratic debate:

#Kamala creep intimates ‘she couldn’t be bothered to care about #Gabbard’s criticism because the Hawaii congresswoman isn’t polling as highly as she is.’

A house is a human right.

Warfare State More Dangerous Than The Welfare State

Democrats, Elections, Socialism, The State, War

Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is not a “vanity project,” but Democrats, and their idiot entertainer friends, are demanding that “long-shot 2020 hopefuls to quit ‘vanity projects’ and drop out.

Gabbard has an important mandate: Stop the Warfare State, which is more dangerous than the Welfare State. But the Democrats are now the War Party, too.

FROM MY WARTIME SOCIALISM:

The finances for the war, of course, will come from the private economy. For every dollar the government spends, a dollar is suctioned from you and me. For every new smiling military recruit sitting pretty with a home, a porch, and a pension, some poor sod will join the army of (nine million) unemployed.

Neoconservative Mark Levin Disses Tucker For Rejecting WAR WITH IRAN

Foreign Policy, Iran, Neoconservatism, Republicans, War

Tucker Carlson is is highly critical of John Bolton and for excellent reasons. Bolton has speared-headed or agitated for unconstitutional, unjust wars and other revolutionary interventions to force democracy abroad through war.

And Tucker Carlson is standing firm again war with an impoverished, economically broken Iran. Neoconservative have always wanted to go to war against Iran. The see their chance.

And neoconservatives like Mark Levin see blood in the water.  They are rushing to create group consensus within the War Party. That means marginalizing thinking dissidents like Tucker.

At 31 minutes and 19 seconds, Levin launches his not-so veiled attack against “Americans who should know better.Clearly it’s not the Left Levin is gunning for; it’s the anti-war Right:

And, Levin misquotes and distorts the likes of Tucker when alleges this was said: “Can you point to one example when Iran committed a terrorist act?”

Tucker has merely asked when last did Iran commit terrorism against the US? He’s on the money. See this blog post of mine: “Iranians Killed ZERO Americans In Terrorist Attacks In U.S. Between 1975 -2015.”

Looks like Tucker Carlson is more likely to have Trump’s ear on Iran than Bolton, or … Levin. Is someone jealous?

Oy Vey, Owens: Candace’ Nationalism Arguments Are Confused

Argument, Europe, Fascism, Logic, Nationhood, Political Philosophy, Reason, Republicans, War

As appealing as she is as an activist, Candace Owens is no clear thinker. She certainly manages to confuse with her default definition of nationalism vis-a-vis the Trump Revolution.

The setting: Some moronic, white-nationalism Congressional hearings.
There, Owens roughly asserted that “Hitler killed his own people hence he was not a nationalist,” which is a non sequitur.

Ms. Owens here is proceeding from the asserted premise—for she doesn’t argue it—that nationalists do not “kill their own people.” This may be true (but would further depend on definitions; what is meant by “own people”), although I very much doubt it. Nevertheless, it appears that Owens’ thought process is something like,

“I like nationalism [check], and, therefore, Hitler, whom I most certainly don’t like, and who was a monster, could not have been a nationalist.”

Consider: Like all Republicans, Owens, no doubt, adores Lincoln. But would she call Honest Abe a nationalist? Why not? I mean, nationalism is a good thing and Abe, say Republicans like Owens, was a good guy.

Well, there is the pesky fact of Lincoln having killed “his own people” … hmmm. By Owens’ seemingly dogmatic definition of nationalism (not killing your own people), Lincoln, at least, does not qualify as a nationalist.

Just so we’re clear.

What preceded Owens’ odd assertion above was an even stranger comment, again, about Hitler. (This was at the same moronic, white-nationalism Congressional hearings.)

“If Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well — OK, fine,” she says. “The problem is … he had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize. He wanted everybody to be German.”

The problem with Hitler? Heavens! Where does one start? It was not that he was a “globalist.” (Is that the kind of “globalist” George Soros Citizen of The World is, Candace?)

How about that Hitler is synonymous with conquest, subjugation, slavery and industrialized mass murder in the service of world hegemony, which, he truly believed, would make Germany  indisputably the greatest power?
