Hillary Clinton Says Tulsi Gabbard Is a ‘Russian Asset’ Groomed To Ensure Trump Reelection


Hillary Clinton has never taken one iota of responsibility for losing the 2016 election. Instead, she blames Russia, WikiLeaks, John Brennan, Bernie Sanders, Jill Stein, etc. She is truly amazing (in a terrible way).

Today she warned about a major threat in the 2020 race: Rep. Tulsi Gabbard.

Appearing on the Campaign HQ podcast hosted by David Plouffe (Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign manager), she said:

“They are also going to do third party again,” Clinton said. “I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said, referring to Gabbard, without mentioning the Hawaii representative by name.

“She is a favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far. That’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she is also a Russian asset.

Following the podcast, Nick Merrill, a top aide to Clinton was asked to clarify his boss’s comments on whether she was speaking about Gabbard:

“If the nesting doll fits,” Merrill told a CNN reporter. “This is not some outlandish claim. This is reality. If the Russian propaganda machine, both their state media and their bot and troll operations, is backing a candidate aligned with their interests, that is just a reality, it is not speculation.”

Recently, Clinton said she had considered entering the 2020 race:

“Maybe there does need to be a rematch,” Clinton said. “Obviously, I can beat him again.


Gabbard later replied to Clinton, tweeting: “Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies and powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose. It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.”

Bipartisan Support For Turkey Sanctions – A ‘Victory’ For Trump?

Republicans and some Democrats seem to be settling for heavy sanctions on NATO ally Turkey for its incursion into Syria, with hawks like Lindsey Graham softening his tone over Trump’s decision to pull US troops from the line of fire. Do they see the shift in public opinion and are shifting their views? How will sanctions work on Turkey? On today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:

Bill Weld, Champion of Foreign Intervention

Ron Paul, who had been the 1988 presidential nominee of the Libertarian Party, spent much time in his 2008 and 2012 Republican primary presidential runs criticizing US intervention overseas and promoting following a noninterventionist foreign policy. Some people might expect Bill Weld would do the same thing in his current Republican primary challenge to President Donald Trump. Weld was, after all, the 2016 Libertarian nominee for vice president. However, as Weld made crystal-clear in his October 8 editorial at Foreign Affairs, Weld aspires to oversee as president a foreign policy that is solidly interventionist.

Weld, in his editorial titled “Reclaiming Republican Foreign Policy,” presents a view far removed from the argument for nonintervention expected from a libertarian. Indeed, the editorial provides a rundown of Weld’s support for the US government intervening militarily and otherwise across the world.

Vietnam Moratorium: A Day To Remember

Life magazine described it as “the largest expression of public dissent ever seen in this country. Newsweek pronounced it a day, destined to go down in history along with Coxey’s Army, the Bonus Marchers and the 1963 March on Washington. Yet fifty years later, the occasion has faded from view.

The Moratorium occurred during one of the darkest periods of the Vietnam War. 40,000 Americans soldiers were already dead. During the first eight months of Richard Nixon’s Presidency, the death toll was averaging more than 500 men a month, with no sign of abating. On the Vietnamese side, hundreds of thousands had perished, several million rural people were displaced, and large swaths of arable land scorched by chemicals and bombs.

The organizers of the Moratorium had a simple idea; on this one day, people opposed to the war would halt “business as usual” and take some action – large or small to signify their desire for peace. It was initially expected that these would be mainly campus events. But something about this modest, open-ended approach had such rapid appeal to the “over thirty” adults, that plans proliferated across the country.

Pentagon Hands Manbij to the Russians (Can We Get Them To Take Afghanistan Too?)

US troops left northern Syria in a hurry in the past 24 or so hours, but Beltway warnings of a “power vacuum” that will allow ISIS to take over have been proven wrong. With the US out of the picture, the Kurds are not facing genocide, but instead have made a deal with Assad to reintegrate into the Syrian army and resist the Turkish incursion. Meanwhile, the Russians are said to be patrolling the no-man’s land between Syrian and Turkish forces while working on a peace agreement. Getting out of stupid wars has once again proven to be a huge benefit to the US, not a disaster! On today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:

Fake News Becomes the Norm: ABC Runs Footage of Kentucky Gun Range Claiming It Shows Syria ‘Slaughter’

On Sunday, as the mainstream media broadcast universal outrage at Trump’s decision to pull out of northeast Syria, ABC News showed dramatic footage showing “the fury of the Turkish attack on the border town of Tal Abyad two nights ago.” The pictures show massive explosions lighting up the night sky.

One problem: the footage was actually a 2017 YouTube video of a Kentucky military show. On Monday, the website Gizmodo revealed the true origin of the footage. ABC quickly issued a correction on Twitter, but not on the air.
