Standard warranty: I am biased in favor of Tulsi Gabbard, the reasons for which I try to explain as I go along.
Notice: I am extremely biased in favor of Tulsi Gabbard. One of the two lessons I hope to impart concerns the essence of her foreign policy stances. The second lesson concerns the circumstances of Tucker interviewing Tulsi at all.
Once I was a Berniecrat--but then I grew up. People get divorced after 40 years of marriage. Why? Things change, even imperceptibly until the end of decades before the realization hits. "It just ain't so, no more"--that's a sad song, we all have sung. But some need to keep on singing, while others find alternative things to do with their time--such as other interests, often divergent from long-held earlier views.
But it won't be this year. Tulsi is playing the long game. She is building name recognition and with that name recognition, she will be publicizing her political stances. Tulsi does agree that Trump is not ideal, but those opinions are relegated to a minor point during her campaign appearances. She is forward-looking, issue-oriented. You will not hear Tulsi mentioning Trump 76 times in one speech like Creepy, corrupt Joe Biden did last week in Iowa.
Just a drive by piece...
When Bernie ran in 2016 I watched almost every speech. This season I'm a bit more jaded, but I must admit to being inspired by Tulsi's sessions. Thought some of you might enjoy this gathering today in NYC. (32 min)
Make of it what you will, but you'll never be allowed to see these kinds of polls on mainstream media, where they often don't even put her on the polls.
Remember heading into 2016 there were polls showing Jill Stein surging late at 22%. Most polls had her at 8%, but hadn't budged since DemExit, when other polls said she was surging. Then the election and Jill gets 1%.
Medea Benjamin and Nicole Davies of CODEPINK look at a new crop of presidential candidates and examine their views – and, when possible, voting records – on issues of war and peace.

"Since speculation arose that Sen. Kamala Harris is preparing to run for president, Hillary Clinton’s supporters have defended her using a strategy that was developed during the 2016 Democratic primaries against Sen. Bernie Sanders. This strategy revolves around the Bernie Bros narrative, which propagates the myth that Sanders supporters are sexist, racist white males.
This email from Tulsi Gabbard (yeah! Tulsi) gab bard fort me thinking. Now reptilian brains like mine are prone to dyslexia so I incorrectly read her email.
The title requires some explanation, of course, because it is not immediately "transparent", that term du jour (proudly joining "alternate facts" and other English language butchery).
