Tulsi Gabbard lashes out at DNC over debate criteria.

They always attack the DNC when they fail to meet the criteria. 

Courtesy of The Hill:

Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) hit the Democratic National Committee (DNC) over its polling criteria for upcoming primary debates, asking it to “ensure transparency and fairness” in selecting the qualifying surveys.

The campaign noted that Gabbard has exceeded 2 percent support in 26 national and early state polls but said only two of those are on DNC’s “certified” list, even as “many of the uncertified polls, including those conducted by highly reputable organizations such as The Economist and the Boston Globe, are ranked by Real Clear Politics and FiveThirtyEight as more accurate than some DNC ‘certified’ polls.”

“The Gabbard campaign is calling on the DNC to hold true to their promise and make adjustments to the process now to ensure transparency and fairness,” the campaign said in a Friday release.
“Crucial decisions on debate qualifications that impact the right of the American people to have the opportunity to participate fully in the Democratic process should not be made in secret by party bosses.”

The DNC raised the threshold to qualify for the upcoming September and October debates, requiring candidates to poll above 2 percent in four DNC-approved polls and raise money from at least 130,000 unique donors.

Gabbard has reached the donor threshold but is two approved polls shy of getting on stage.

You know I would also like to criticize the DNC for ever treating Tulsi Gabbard like a viable candidate in the first place. 

I mean come on!

Do you know who aggressively supports Gabbard online?

The Republicans and the Russians, that’s who.

That pretty much tells you all you need to know about her and her campaign.

The sooner they kick her off the debate stage the better.

    Gabbard might be the only candidate with any rational sense and this is how you treat her. Such a joke the leftists.

    If Sanders or Warren is the candidate who do you think the blue dog Democrats are voting for?

    The party is eating it’s own and letting the dumbass novice congresswomen suck all the air out of the room and letting the party’s face be anti-Semitic.

    “9-11 was just some people who did something”. Good god man! That is the voice of the party!

      Huge surprise that the resident troll comes to her defense.

      Sort of makes my case for me, don’t you think?

        Maybe you should start listening to some common sense from your ‘resident troll’ attempting to shed a little reality into your brain lol.

        Funny you call anyone that doesn’t fall in line with your narrow vision a troll. It is like the puritan test for the ultra liberals. You are the new age puritans, to your own demise. You are the worst racist of them all. If YOU are not EXACTLY like ME then YOU must be a woman hating gay hating black hating Mexican hating bible thumping gun clutching Trump loving hick named Cletus from the sticks!

        And the likes of you DO have the Democratic party eating it’s own. Pelosi is doing her best to keep the bus from going off the ledge but she has lost the steering wheel and the brakes are almost gone. Good luck buddy.

        ps, told you Hillary was going to lose. Called it months before the election. Know why? Not a dumbass lost in my own bubble. Want to know who the first female President is going to be?

    • Anonymous August 24, 2019 at 3:41 pm

      The party is eating it’s own because NO one has the damned GUTS to stand up lest they lose their precious seats and perks, and that includes Pelosi!

    I’m kinda bewildered as to why Gabbard is even running for POTUS with no political accomplishments. If she’s just padding her resume then get the fuck of the train. It’s time for seriousness and she lacks that.

    “I’m polling at 2%? There’s something wrong with system!”
    Typical. Try no one thinks of you as you do yourself.

    She should take a page out of Jay Inslee’s book and go out with a modicum of self respect.

    (Sorry for your loss, Cletus.)

    • Anonymous August 24, 2019 at 4:18 pm

      What loss? The first female President is not happening this election, and it isn’t going to be any of the current female Democratic candidates in the future either. Gabbard at least isn’t a complete joke of a person, and she deserves respect for her past and present.

        Don’t worry, honey, Putin will get her into the debates, just give him time.

        • HRH August 25, 2019 at 7:22 am

          Just like he did for Jill Stein. Gabbard is nothing more than Jill Stein 2.0.

          • Anonymous August 25, 2019 at 8:14 am

            lol. How is Gabbard Jill Stein? Stein ran for the Green Party. You folks are insanely ignorant with what spews out of your blowholes. You must embarrass your families on the regular. You do realize this is all for the Democratic primaries correct?

            Are you all still tying to make excuses for Hillary the Great failure of the North?

          • Adan Stevens August 26, 2019 at 10:37 am

            Yeah because people who voted Green party for the environment were going to ever vote for the fracking queen Hillary. Call me crazy but I thought in a a democracy you could vote for who ever you want to. I must not understand how politics work but I thought it was the job of the candidate or party to court and attract the voter to vote for them with popular policies and I had no idea that people were expected to give allegiance to the Democrats without the Democrats making their case to the voters. *In principal Skinner’s voice* “Am I out of touch? NO! It is the voters who are wrong!” The ruling elite tolerate liberals because they establish the boundaries of how far left politics is allowed to go by the billionaire ruling class. People are not free and not allowed to be to the left of a liberal, which is to say they aren’t allowed to actually be in the actual Left.

        The day I respect any “politician” of what we have now will be a cold day in hell.
        Proselytize all you want if it gives you power in your head. GEEZ.

        I am surprised she is polling so low since the russians want her as the candidate, their bots are all over her social media.

        • Mike D August 26, 2019 at 7:29 am

          Tulsi is running on ending our forever wars…I do not hear any other Dem canidate voice that position as loudly as her.The writer here is obviously against a Tulsi administration for ine reason or another but to smear her like this is disgusting. The DNC is certainly pushing her out to please their military masters.

    • Da August 25, 2019 at 10:57 pm

      What do you expect from the DNC. Tulsi voted for Sander’s not HRC. Now the want to spin her record. #tulsi2020

  7. Karen in SoCal August 24, 2019 at 5:26 pm

    I see the Russian troll farm has found this site. Tulsi Gabbard (Assad apologist) is the Democrat most favored by Putin. There’s no way she’s getting the nomination. And to the commenter who wonders who the Blue Dogs are going to vote for, I have news. They will vote BLUE no matter who. I guarantee it.

      I find it hilarious! Now why would Gryph be inundated with a Russian troll?
      Could it be because of a has been, and an equally daughter with XXX exotica BFF?

      Lol. Karen in SoCal thinks that Michigan and Pennsylvania and Ohio working class Democrats think like California Democrats.

    All this aside, the DNC has learned nothing and are still trying to stack the deck. They need to step back and let the people decide. If they’re going to choose they need to drop the pretense of pretending their candidate isn’t a done deal.

      I love how the majority of Americans, independent, republic and Democrat want universal healthcare according to polls but we are told that is a fringe position and being in favor of the health insurance crooks is mainstream. I love how both Obama and Trump (and face it, if they hadn’t cheated Bernie too) ran to the Left of Hillary and won. Obama said he was against the Iraq war, would be tough on the banks, spoke critically of NAFTA and said he was for a public option and won, and Trump said he was against the wars, tied Hillary to Goldman Sachs, etc also won. Now both of them, like politicians, lied and governed as right wingers, but this notion that a progressive message can’t win is so obviously false when the candidate who runs on the more progressive or more Left stances has won since 2008. Bernie won Michigan, Bernie won Ohio. Bernie won the popular vote all 57 counties in West Virginia (but Hillary ended up taking all the delegates: Democracy!) Yet somehow we are supposed to believe the propaganda that popular positions on issues which poll consistently in the majority are somehow going to lose. That somehow a moderate is supposed to win these states although Hillary failed spectacularly as a centrist.

    what do you say to kicking them ALL out and starting over? not letting anyone of them back in?

    How about send everyone back and then let the natives re-negotiate their immigration policy.

  12. Bob August 25, 2019 at 11:48 pm

    We went to war with Iraq under false pretenses. All she is doing is questioning the validity of mixed reports. She has condemned Assad openly. She doesn’t want people to die and to add more to our debt. The ignorance displayed here is just sad. This ignorance and hate filled drivel is going to drive people out of the Democratic party. This all consuming cancel culture that lacks any ability to actually look at facts is so disgraceful. The party of progressive acceptance my ass. You idiots are going to get thar piece of shit Trump elected again with this rhetoric. Congratulations on writing a political blog that just distorts facts to push an agenda. Pathetic!

    Gabbard has no chance she is not supported by the Military industrial complex as well as media not to mention Israel and Corporate without any one of these supporting you either outright or behind the scenes you haven’t a chance.

  14. Adan Stevens August 26, 2019 at 4:14 am

    What I love is how the establishment show zero respect for her combat service because she isn’t in favor of bombing brown people and taking their oil. With Mueller concluding the Trump campaign “appeared to have no contacts” with the Russian government, their version of Benghazi has been exposed as nothing bet racist xenophobia to distract away from the failure of Neoliberal capitalist policies that have hollowed out the USA and soured the public to the corrupt pro-Wall St & warmongering Democrats. They have managed to shut out all countervailing facts to their naritives and voices who would challenge them on their “news” outlets, they can’t wait to shut her out of this as well. Never mind that Seymour Hersh, the journalist who exposed both the Mi Lai massacre and Abu Ghrahib’s torture and rape of prisoners, already exposed the Turkish involvement in the Ghouta attacks as not being by Assad (so much so that the NY Times removed it from their list of gas attacks and Maddie admitted they didn’t have the evidence to tie it to Assad) and never mind that the OPCW suppressed the engineer’s report which concluded the Duma gas weapons were staged and moved to the scene, nevermind the the Obama administration and Trump administration have both been arming Al Qaeda (Al Nusra) through the CIA ratline and operation Timber Sycamore, the corporate pro-imperialist propaganda is pushing for regime change in countries who do not submit to the U$ empire and if you push back against their demonstrably false lies you are called an Assad apologist. Nevermind that the U$ presidents have been cosy with the Suadi tyrants and met with them, or that Apartheid white settler state Israeli snipers shot over 50 visibly unarmed protestors according to the UN report (imagine if that happened in China, Venezuela, Russia, Iran, etc and how different the reaction would be). The establishment can back Saudi tyrants who behead those who protest against the king and for democracy, they can cozy up to corrupt war criminal Netanyahu and even give aid to Al Qaeda, but Gabbard for saying we shouldn’t bomb the Syrian people and help Al Qaeda is the “traitor” somehow. Nevermind that Putin said he prefered Obama to Romney and that Obama told Romney that the 1980s called and wanted their foreign policy back when he said Russia was a for of the U$, the new official Party line is to scapegoat Russia for all the failures of the Democrats and those who do not stick to the official party line are purged from the public discourse on corporate conglomerate propaganda. These are the types of folks who say “Trump is so bad, I miss Dubya!” And rehabilitate a war criminal who ran a torture program but they are still angry at Nader for “giving us” (wait for it…) Dubya! These folks run to the airports to protest Trump’s ban on seven Muslim countries, call it racist, but never say peepe about the seven Muslim countries being bombed, where drones bomb wedding parties and fishing villages. These folks had nothing to say when Obama gave material support for the genocide in Yemen. They don’t have anything to say about Obama take half a million dollars a speech talking to Wall St, the very criminals his DOJ kept out of jail. They have nothing to say about the candidates taking money from big Pharma as people go broke or die for lack of healthcare. These people are the moral superior to no one, and the blood money they take from the death merchants from the war industry says all you need to know about who they serve: the are agents of death and aggression towards the poorest people in the world all for that sweet, sweet blood money.

      No need for me to repeat the substance of your comment setting forth some of the numerous war crimes and crimes against humanity
      carried out by the Empire
      I will however surmise that the CIA/NSA/warmonger sycophants
      who attack the patriotism of this
