Watch A Sitting Congresswoman Shred The MSM Narrative In Under A Minute

Hawaii Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard appeared on multiple Sunday news shows a day after her state's false ICBM emergency alert sent the islands into a tense 40 minutes of panic before it was revealed to be a message sent in error, where she slammed the mainstream media's reporting on the North Korean nuclear threat, saying"We've got to understand that North Korea is holding onto these nuclear weapons because they think it is their only protection from the United States coming in and doing to them what the United States has done to so many countries throughout history." 

She further called for Trump to hold direct talks with Kim Jong Un in order to prevent the real thing from ever happening.

On Saturday Gabbard had immediately criticized President Trump for mishandling North Korea, taking to MSNBC to proclaim that "our leaders have failed us. Donald Trump is taking too long... he's not taking this [nuclear] threat seriously..." During Sunday interviews she elaborated on a plan of action, advising Trump to enter talks with Pyongyang which should “happen without preconditions” and that Trump should “sit across the table from Kim Jong Un” in order stamp out the climate of fear which contributed to the “unacceptable” alert issued on Saturday. 

“We’ve got to get to the underlying issue here of why are the people of Hawaii and this country facing a nuclear threat coming from North Korea today, and what is this President doing urgently to eliminate that threat?” Gabbard said on CNN’s State of the Union. She added that Pyongyang sees its nuclear weapons program as "the only deterrent against the U.S. coming in and overthrowing their regime there" after decades of the US exhibiting a pattern of regime change when dealing with rogue states, which she said makes setting up preconditions for talks a self-defeating step.

And concerning the potential for an "unintentional" nuclear war, Gabbard said, "It’s not just the President making a decision to launch a nuclear weapon. It’s these kinds of mistakes that we have seen happen in the past that bring us to this brink of nuclear war that could be unintentional.”

The Hawaii lawmaker, who has garnered a lot of attention over her non-interventionist stance on Syria while angering establishment pundits for doing things like visiting Damascus last yearon a fact-finding mission, left ABC's George Stephanopoulos visibly flustered during an interview on Sunday's "This Week". She said:

We know that North Korea has these nuclear weapons because they see how the United States in Libya for example guaranteed Gadaffi - 'we're not going to go after you, you should get rid of your nuclear weapons.' He did, then we went and led an attack that toppled Gaddafi, launching Libya into chaos that we are still seeing the results of today. North Korea sees what we did in Iraq with Saddam Hussein, with those false reports of weapons of mass destruction. And now seeing in Iran how President Trump is decertifying a nuclear deal that prevented Iran from developing their nuclear weapons, threatening the very existence and the agreement that was made. 

At this point an incredulous Stephanopoulos stopped the Congresswoman and asked, "Was it a mistake for the United States to take out Gaddafi and Hussein?" Gabbard responded firmly with, "It was, absolutely."  Apparently this was enough to end the interview as a presumably shocked Stephanopoulos had no response at that point.

For those unfamiliar, Gabbard is an Army reserve officer who previously served two tours in the Middle East, including in Iraq, and has been an outspoken critic of regime change and Washington's interventionist foreign policy.

Her point is retarded. If we hadn't given North Korea their nuclear facilities, then this wouldn't even be a conversation. To suggest they got these weapons on their own, and are using them as a deterrent for imperialist America, is intellectually dishonest. Why are we not holding Bill responsible for that outrageously dumb deal when he was president? Can we address that elephant, then get back to the part where we are now stuck compromising our lives with a lunatic?

Very interesting. CFR and Bilderberg bring in young talents for grooming. If they [ass the job interview, they are set up for further success. If not, we hear very little from those talents again (control of the media, control of the parties). The talent is not invited back.

The Hollywood system. Except in politics.

I think you're stuck in a time warp, Obama provided AQ (or at least elements of AQ) with an air force, weapons and intel that overthrew Qaddafi and made Libya into the failed state that it is.

He started the same thing in Syria which (by consequence or design) sent 100's of thousands of Muslim refugees into Europe.

The left owns the narrative.

"We've got to understand that North Korea is holding onto these nuclear weapons because they think it is their only protection from the United States coming in and doing to them what the United States has done to so many countries throughout history." 

 

Really the only interesting thing about Gabbard saying that (which is pretty much common [sense] knowledge at this point, unless you're a sheeple) was that "they" allowed it to be shown on a nationally televised Sunday morning political show . . . where the sheep go to get their weekly word on reality from the "anointed ones".  It's the equivalent of some Chinese Army Colonel making a statement in the People's Daily (i.e. it doesn't happen unless someone on high wants it to). Does that mean a change in the narrative is in the works??

There is no doubt that the representative is a patriot. But that fact does not deter from the fact that she's a koolaid-drinking idiot. What, pray tell, is the good that would come from Trump sitting face-to-face with Kim?

When you compromise with evil, it is your principles that are to be compromised, not evil's. The act, (or as the Trumpster himself would tell you, "the art"), of compromise is to negotiate a win-win.

How much "winning" will Trump achieve for both average Americans and average North Koreans? Exactly zero. The only thing that will come of it is to support and sustain Kim's junta in power.

Gabbard, for all of good intentions, just does not "get" evil, which is rather curious, considering just how much of the Middle East she's seen. It makes one wonder just what she would "trade" with the North Koreans...

And you think she is the one chugging the kool aid?

Look, you fucking goat, evil is defined by actions.  And the actions of the JooSA have been nothing but evil for a fucking long time.  500,000 kids starved to death in Iraq, oh sure, it was worth it.

As others say here, what exactly is the need for the US to get involved in NK?  What was the need 70 years ago?  Profits for the MIC, that's all.  Get that into your thick head.  And understand, that is evil itself.

Dog dog, you lose your argument when you engage in ad hominem attacks, amigo. I get it that you see the world through the glasses of a virulent form of antisemitism. Jews are the cause of all your woes, I get it.

I also get that you think that Jews control the USA and the world. Aren't you sure it wasn't a million little children we murdered in Iraq? Maybe two?

~"As others say here, what exactly is the need for the US to get involved in NK?  What was the need 70 years ago?"~

Our involvement in Korea 70 years ago precluded half of Korea not living under the control of the Kim family. Yeah, I get it, that's a crappy excuse. But I will reiterate the question for a ranting son of a village idiot:

What does Trump gain by doing what Gabbard wants and sitting down to chat it up with Kim, which by the way, makes Gabbard witless because she hasn't thought through what the possible outcome comes from it is.

Blow me.

jews are not the cause of all his/her woes but zionists are (italics) the cause of most of the problems of the u.s. overseas since, for sure, 9-11 and probably the fall of the ussr and maybe the assassination of jfk. it's not antisemitism or even antijewism. it's just what the fuck has happened since harry truman went against the advice of a far more intelligent, prescient, and moral man, general george marshall and recognized israel in order to win the '48 presidential race.

and the reason north korea invaded the south is the idiots in the u.s. state department said we wouldn't defend south korea in the case of an invasion. imo the u.s. military and the cia wanted a war to cement the cold war. they never have enough war. http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2013/07/28/who-really-started-the-ko…

oh and the half of korea that didn't live under the control of the kim family lived under the control of the rhee family until the south koreans finally rebelled against them and their cia backers. that's just history.

The question that begs to be asked is, "Who would be the most evil of the two parties sitting at the negotiation table, the North Koreans or the Americans?"

How much death, destruction, and disruption have the North Koreans rained down on anyone beyond their own borders? For instance, do North Korean drones zap family gatherings? Who knows? It's possible it occurs within their own borders but I have no way of knowing and I suspect you don't either. If they did so beyond their own borders I'm quite certain both you and I would hear about it.

How many military bases do the North Koreans have beyond their own borders? None that I'm aware of. How many sovereign nations have the North Koreans invaded or otherwise occupied in the last 100 years? Not too many! The list could go on forever. 

There's a damned good reason why so many people on the planet see America as, "the Evil Empire". The evidence is overwhelming! These folks are royally pissed off, with justification, and you wonder why. Oh well, not being able to see the forest for the trees is a pretty common affliction. It's somewhat curable though.

It's you, I'm afraid, that doesn't "get" evil or, for that matter, where it resides.

north korea has actually attacked people outside north korea: https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=north+korean+attac…

but compared to the u.s. record, especially since ww2 or since 9-11? upwards of two million dead and five million or more homeless? trump has his work cut out for him if he is not a fraud. p.s. leave iran alone too.

bust 9-11 and change the world.

Ummmm....the North Koreans did actually invade South Korea, which is what started this mess. To be fair, there was no such thing as North and South Korea before all of this, but that is hardly the point. A little bit of Cold War politics, and suddenly to have millions dead, a county devided, and 60plus years of isolation and misery. No one could have seen it coming, I assure you.

~" It's you, I'm afraid, that doesn't "get" evil or, for that matter, where it resides."~

Evil sits tight, right next to Power. It always has. BWTFDIK. As far as American Evil, it's in our military-industrial centers, the "intelligence" operati that has used the drug business to engender regime change for the sake of world control, (and failed miserably though with much harm). That's not to say we have a monopoly on it. There's always seemed to have been plenty around for others to engage in. We just had the bad taste of passing it off as "Good". 

Now Sac Dog, (and probably you as well for all I know), thinks it is all the fault of members of a certain faith. Personally, I see poison in all mysticism, but that's just me. YMMV.

But for the nuclear threat, how the fuck does Kim remaining in a power "junta" make one fucking bit of difference in your life? Why the hell should you or anyone else risk a nuclear war over that peninsula? It's just ridiculous that americans continually get the idea that they should be in charge of the whole world. How about you just concern yourself with what's going on here in America and let the Koreans worry about their country? We certainly have enough of our own problems.

I am just thankful that she has a brain the plumbs exponentially deeper than yours.  Not sure how you define evil.  How many countries has yours and mine bombed into oblivion in the last 12-15 years?  Think about it fool.  Democracy spread at the end of a gun barrel or drone strike--one dead civilian at a time. Yep, the Lord is on our side...

But Reagan created the Taliban and mujahideen Gen 1, and Bush created the Iraqi and Afghani disasters.

Treason is fully bi-partisan, both parties lie prostrate before the same ((masters)).

exhibiting a pattern of regime change when dealing with rogue states

Seriously?  The most rogue states in the world are the Axis of Evil - Washington, City of London, Tel Aviv.  War criminals the lot of them.  The ones these states destroy, are the "independent" states - i.e., those that don't kiss ass of the ((masters)).

In response to the well known ZH spammer Stizazz saying:

"Was it a mistake for the United States to take out Gaddafi and Hussein?"

Time warp & Obama puppet Bes says:

"is this the MSM narrative?

or that of Trump?"

To which I corrected her by saying Trump had nothing to do with either and in fact Obama by his actions unleashed hundreds of thousands of Muslims into the heart of Europe by doing what he (and Hillary) did in Syria and you...give some inane...but but but "Bush did it too!!!"?

The fact of the matter is..."bruh"...HAWAII JUST TERRORIZED ITS ENTIRE POPULATION WITH A >>>FALSE<<< ICBM WARNING.

Full stop.

You have one of the biggest false flags of your lifetime staring you right in the face and all you progs want to talk about is Bush & Trump? Really?

Why aren't you looking for (((them))) in Hawaii?

No, neocons and deep state + MIC own it. They just use whoever is in the white house or congress  as a sock puppet.

You are still stuck in the false left-right narrative and can't see the real enemy.

... Or you are here to push the false narrative yourself, because you benefit from it.

Doesn't matter, Mnewn.  We, the little people, have no means of knowing details such as that.  All we can know with absolute certainty is that the government/MSM story of what happened 9/11 is bullshit.  Complete and utter bullshit.  A coverup.  That makes our government, at the best, conspirators after the fact.  Which makes them guilty of the crime.  That's enough to break out the pitchforks.

If only ... to see members of the US Senate on the field of battle, like Roman Senators of the Republic turning out to face down the Carthaginians.  We are well past that point, and instead what we have is a recreation of the Senate that faced Alaric in 408 AD, when they first told him the Romans were more than prepared to repulse his forces (A: "The thickest grass is easiest to cut"), and after asking for his terms, which were all the wealth of Rome, asked pitifully, "But what will that leave us?" (A: "Your lives.")

Nice post

On the surface, Gabbard does seem like a step up over the typical politico

But then again, she may seem too good

TPTB have the time & energy to put all types of controls & contingencies in place, at least in the periods between baby blood injections

Gabbard could well be a Project.....The dark-complected prettiness.....the Hinduism.....the military connections.....the frequent MSM appearances.....the sympathetic telling some of the truth, but not all of it.....

Yes, I say she is a Project
