One phase of winnowing down has begun.

2. Giving her respect for her service doesn't entitle her to a

 

free pass to any public office any more than it entitles her to a million dollar salary for life.

She is being criticized for her words and deeds. If she feels unfairly accused of collusion with Russians or anyone else, she should deny involvement rather than throw out other accusations.

that his microphone wasn't working.

5. Perhaps she could

 

prove that she is not allied with those whom we suspect..?

I appreciate that she served in the military but,as you said, she's not entitled to use that as a cudgel in a political forum. She needs to have more real answers to policy intention questions rather than her endless critique and bludgeon attacks. What are her policy proposals?

4. Two candidates without a chance.

 

But Gabbard just dropped a bomb that a lot of third party people like. Gabbard has their attention. Iíve seen Tulsi called a right winger. That is incorrect. She is admired by the most toxic group on the left. Itís a group that was very vocal in Ď16. They didnít want Trump but they were ok with him over Clinton.

Turner and Grey come to mind. As do these folks.

Well documented in their own words. I think Stein might be the one on the hot seat tonight.

I donít think Yang has bad intentions. This is what happens when he says something outside of his platform.

16. Clinton didn't say she is a right winger.

 

I donít think Stein is a right winger. The Russians didnít only throw right wingers a direct assist last go around. They also assisted right wingers by using ginning shit up for Stein and generating more animosity between Clinton and Sanders supporters.

28. I don't think she pegs in any hole, too erratic. Even before this,

 

I was easily able to imagine her eventually making herself unwelcome in the Republican and any minor parties also. Especially in what's become a very misogynistic white men's party these days.
Presuming she got elected, I don't see Kevin McCarthy suffering her gladly when he makes the 13 well behaved women cons in his caucus so unwelcome and angry.

Sanders is likely already a closed door. He wouldn't have her when she spat on the DNC and tried to use that as a credential to embed with him.

If she forms her own party or runs as a Green, those will be short lived.

In any case, the deep enmity she expressed for us suggests she's about finished soiling her nest here. Her heavily Democratic district is full explanation for why she ran as a Democrat in the first place, and if she runs again they'll decide if she'll continue. She hasn't actually said she will.

The Russian plan started decades ago.. It didn't just come out of no where in 2016. They've been plotting this for quite a while.

There's plenty of folks who've been around a while part of this insanity.

ARGH

Marianne Williamson

The Democratic establishment has got to stop smearing women it finds inconvenient! The character assassination of women who donít toe the party line will backfire. Stay strong @TulsiGabbard . You deserve respect and you have mine.

Don't criticize her obvious problems because she's a veteran? Timothy McVeigh was a veteran too, does that mean we should have let that one go?


One thing we need in the next president is somebody who can identify and call out the grifters, and clearly Yang is not able to do this.

29. Yang is one of the 8 who have already qualified for the November debate

 

Gabbard probably will not qualify for the November debate, and all the rest are going to have a hard time as well, unless something big happens.
