Podcast: Tulsi Gabbard Votes Against BDS One Day, Co-Sponsors a Pro-BDS Bill the Next

A little bit of inconsistency there on a mixed-bag movement

On FPF #384 I cover Tulsi Gabbard’s positions on BDS, India’s crackdown in Kashmir, and Iran possibly seizing an Iraqi ship in the Gulf. Last week, Tulsi voted for a bill that condemned BDS. She received some criticism from her base and has now become a co-sponsor of Ilhan Omar’s bill affirming Americans’ rights to boycott a foreign government.

India has started to take more control over Kashmir. The Indian government took legal steps to take some of Kashmir’s autonomy. India has also cut phone and internet services in Kashmir. I explain how this can lead to a dangerous escalation with nuclear powers India and Pakistan. 

In the Middle East, Iran is claiming to have seized an Iraqi oil tanker. Iran alleges the tanker was involved in smuggling. In Yemen, the sometime Saudi-aided AQAP is carrying out attacks against the Saudi/US-backed government’s forces.

It could be that after feedback from her base and deliberation she modified her position…In my mind it won’t be “inconsistent” until she switches back. This may be a good thing….

It is more possible the subjects being discussed openly (tv. etc.) have IMO been talked over inner-party before Mrs Gabbard showed her true colors, the insane party line: Israel First.

All the waffle openly has one purpose: to keep the sheeple sleep and calm

IMO as log as deep states, shadow governments, alphabet spy- and snoopy clubs with swamp remains operating, there will never be a real federal government serving the states of the United States of America according the Constitution.

Even a Mr Trump and his Administration suit the name “Pinnoccio”.

An American politician talks out of both sides of her mouth in an attempt to appeal to opposing political groups?

In other news, water is wet.

Tulsi Gabbard is yet another “controlled opposition” political hack, who has mastered the art of doublespeak like the rest of these American political vermin.

No one is allowed within spitting distance of Washington DC, unless they are owned.
I am a Texican, living on the face of the land of the occupied Republic Of Texas.
The last legal Republic of Texas government ceased when the last Texas troops surrendered in 1865 to the USA.
Washington DC is the area where USA/Washington DC has their occupation headquarters.

With that out of the way, if the American sheep just have to pretend they have a president who is not a hand puppet, she is much better looking than the flabby Trump with the bad hair.
Don’t agree with much she has done, agree with some of what she says, which she would not have the power to deliver on, even if she wanted to, if she were to be put into the big white Cat House in Sodom and Gomorrah on the Potomac.

BUT!
She’s better looking than trump, and surly she could not make as large of a clown of herself as he has.

Course I said the same of Trump and Hillary, and he has done his best to prove me wrong.

interesting how tulsi chooses to attack harris who yes is as slippery as they come…totally sold out to the status quo……both the truth is she tulsi…is just as disengenuous…a total fraud regarding her position on israel which she has failed to convince anyone with a brain that she serves entirely as a stooge for their right wing.
