Sickening shit.. here's the golf thing


Gabbard supports GOP bill on Syrian refugees

One of Hawaii’s four Democratic representatives in Congress went against party conventions in the wake of continuing tensions over the Syrian civil war and Syrian refugees following last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard was one of 47 Democrats who voted in favor of a Republican-sponsored bill that would require refugees from Iraq and Syria to receive background checks from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The heads of the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and the director of national intelligence would be required to personally certify that each refugee does not present a security threat.

House Resolution 4038, known as the American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act of 2015, passed the House of Representatives by a 289-137 vote on Thursday. A total of 135 Democrats voted against the measure.

Mahalo for that, brooklynite

How Tulsi Gabbard became Assads mouthpiece in Washington

By Josh Rogin January 29


The Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria has had a quiet but well-funded lobbying effort in Washington since well before he began murdering his own people. But that influence campaign’s clearest triumph came only this month, when it succeeded in bringing Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) to Damascus and having her parrot Assad’s propaganda on her return.


Upon her return, Gabbard referenced those Syrians in interviews and op-eds to reinforce her long-held opposition to what she calls the U.S. “regime change” policy in Syria. She also asserted there are no moderate rebels in Syria and that the United States is funding and arming al-Qaeda and the Islamic State. Neither is true, but both match the talking points that the Assad regime has been pushing for the entirety of the war.


Principled opposition to U.S. intervention in Syria is one thing. Becoming a tool of a mass murderer’s propaganda and influence campaign is another. Gabbard’s cooperation with the Syrian regime damages her effort to promote herself as a legitimate foreign policy voice.

Actually, gabbard is giving a War Criminal Cover.. Dean has her #

‘No different than Trump with Putin’: Howard Dean says Tulsi Gabbard should resign for defending Assad

“I think it’s outrageous,” a terse Dean responded. “There’s a long well-known history, both in our intelligence community, Amnesty International and Doctors Without Borders. Every single one of these agencies has said that Assad is using chemical weapons. He’s a barbarian, he’s murdered half a million of his own people.”

“I can’t imagine how you could make a statement like that, especially being on the Foreign Relations Committee,” he continued. “I can’t imagine what could possibly be going through her head.”

“To that end, you put a tweet out, I’m going to read it to everybody, okay? ” Witt responded before quoting Dean on Twitter writing, “This is a disgrace. Gabbard should not be in Congress,” along with a link to Gabbard’s comments.

“All she’s asking for is proof though,” Witt pressed.

“If you’re on the Foreign Relations Committee and you haven’t seen the proof in the last five and a half years, there’s something the matter with you,” Dean shot back. “I am tired of people making excuses. This is no different than Trump making excuses for Putin. We’ve had enough of this.”
