Tulsi Gabbard: Trump wants war with Iran because that’s what Al Qaeda wants

Donald Trump, proposer of a global ban on Muslims entering the United States — and Al Qaeda stooge.

Sounds like Mueller missed the real collusion story.

AQ is just one part of a witches’ brew in her new ad below that’s supposedly pushing Trump into war. The “neocons,” noted fans of Al Qaeda, are there, of course. So are the Israelis and Saudis, natch. So are … the neolibs, which reeks of ingratitude towards Barack Obama. The guy punted on bombing Assad, balked at military action by Netanyahu against Iran’s nuclear program, then struck a lame bargain with Iran himself lifting sanctions on the regime while preserving their right to restart uranium enrichment in a decade or so. This is the thanks he and establishment Democrats get for continuously farting away U.S. credibility to Iran’s advantage?

Most of the villains named in Gabbard’s ad are staples of leftist demagoguery but AQ is a little different. There *is* someone with whom Gabbard is personally acquainted who shares the belief that the U.S. is a tool of Sunni jihadis, though, notes Mike Doran. It is a weird but true fact that one of our Democratic candidates for president this year is a real-life no-foolin’ Assad apologist, right down to accusing the president of being influenced by Al Qaeda because they share a common enemy in Iran.

Although, of course, Iran’s “enemy” status with AQ is highly nuanced. As is her friend Bashar’s relationship with Sunni jihadis.

I’m a bit surprised at how marginal Gabbard’s been in the primary. Right, she’s not well-known and her would-be base has been cannibalized by higher-profile leftists like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, but she’s telegenic, a veteran, likes to throw attention-getting roundhouses in her online ads, and has taken as her signature issue a hardcore anti-interventionist posture. (Although I’d be curious to see whether that changed if Trump suddenly had a massive falling out with Assad’s enemies in Riyadh.) There’s a constituency on the left, and on the far right, for that viewpoint but she’s been a one-percent candidate in virtually every poll. I’m guessing her bad numbers are a product of poor name recognition plus the fact that Trump’s first two years as president have been quiet abroad. Apart from a few jabs at Assad, his foreign policy has been more noteworthy for diplomacy than for military action although we may be on the cusp of that changing with John Bolton and Mike Pompeo leaning on him to show strength with Iran and Venezuela. If he does and war suddenly becomes the talk of the primary, Gabbard may be the main beneficiary.

Hillary: You can run the best campaign and still have the election stolen from you

Conversely, you can run a terrible campaign in which you call your opponent’s supporters “deplorable” and so neglect white working-class voters that you don’t bother stumping in Wisconsin and end up losing because you deserved to. True story.

Watch the latest video at foxnews.com

Is Hillary giving us her take on her own election there or is she giving us the Democratic Party’s new take on all elections in which they lose? Don’t be so sure it’s the former.

Anyway, we needn’t rehash this again. By now it should suffice to say that if anyone “stole” the election from Clinton it wasn’t Putin and the Russian troll farm but James Comey, running down leads to the bitter end generated by her own malfeasance as Secretary of State. He’s claimed in interviews that he had no rooting interest in the election, feeling that partisanship would have been a bad look for the director of the FBI, but he acknowledges that he expected Clinton to win and admits that his certainty about that probably did influence his decisions on some level. That is, he may have released the last-minute letter about reopening the Emailgate probe only because he believed it couldn’t possibly impede her inevitable victory. If Comey was a “thief,” he was an unwitting one.

It’s ironic that she’s nudging her party to question the legitimacy of Republican victories today, though, since the NYT reported less than 24 hours ago that Nancy Pelosi’s worried about Trump pulling the same move next November:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi does not believe President Trump can be removed through impeachment — the only way to do it, she said this week, is to defeat him in 2020 by a margin so “big” he cannot challenge the legitimacy of a Democratic victory…

“We have to inoculate against that, we have to be prepared for that,” Ms. Pelosi said during an interview at the Capitol on Wednesday as she discussed her concern that Mr. Trump would not give up power voluntarily if he lost re-election by a slim margin next year

In recent weeks Ms. Pelosi has told associates that she does not automatically trust the president to respect the results of any election short of an overwhelming defeat. That view, fed by Mr. Trump’s repeated and unsubstantiated claims of Democratic voter fraud, is one of the reasons she says it is imperative not to play into the president’s hands, especially on impeachment.

Trump will question the outcome of next year’s election if he loses no matter what the margin is. He’d be more likely to delegitimize a close race, certainly, but a lopsided loss will also be delegitimized on grounds of sheer improbability. (“It’s impossible for an incumbent to lose by that much. Something was rigged!”) The guy finds losing so intolerable that he cheats at golf; imagine how intolerable he’d find losing a national popularity contest. The best-case scenario is him allowing that the Democratic nominee got more votes but insisting that that’s still illegitimate and basically rigged on account of the Fake News Media’s extreme favoritism towards the left.

He’s not going to try to cling to power after a defeat, though. There aren’t enough people around him who’d support him in that. Stepping down while shouting “rigged!” all the way might actually be an enjoyable way for him to leave, as then he wouldn’t need to worry about this thankless job anymore and could go back to the high life insisting that he’d never been fairly defeated. But never mind him. What about Democrats? What’s their excuse going to be if Trump knocks them out again next year, a scenario that’s at least as likely as not given the state of the economy? Will it be voter suppression, a la Stacey Abrams? Or will it be the claim that Russia or some other foreign power must have intervened below the radar again and Trump and his corrupt DOJ minions are suppressing that fact? Amy Klobuchar’s already dropping hints about that and was called out for doing so this morning by Jake Tapper on CNN. The bases of the two major parties despise each other so intensely in 2019 that it would grieve them on an almost spiritual level to believe that a majority of Americans might sincerely prefer the other side to their own. There’s not going to be a consensus “fair and square” outcome in 2020, period.

Low Energy: Joe Biden Stumbles and Slurs His Way Through First Campaign Speech

We’ve been assured that this indicates cognitive issues by liberals and that it makes you unfit for the Presidency. Will Joe Biden drop out by the weekend?

Biden kicked off his campaign (officially) in Pittsburgh yesterday to a crowd of Teamsters. It was the kind of crowd you’d expect him to be in front of, as blue-collar appeal is going to be his primary weapon against Trump. It’s what makes him so dangerous in 2020 compared to someone like Sanders.

Something went wrong, though, and Biden started slurring his speech like a 90-year-old drunk man.

I’ll admit, the entire scene was weird. Maybe he got too much Botox the other day or something? Being that I’m not a 76-year-old man, I have a hard time understanding what makes a person speak like that uncontrollably.

Do I think Biden’s performance here indicates mental debilitation? Nah, I doubt it and Trump has had a few similar episodes before. The bigger issue I see here is that it does call into question Biden’s ability to keep this up for another year and a half. If he’s already slurring his speech in his first major appearance, what’s he going to look like next summer? I’m already picturing a repeat of when Hillary passed out and was thrown into a van like a piece of meat

You can say a lot of things about Trump but no one can deny that he’s a machine when it comes to campaigning and public speaking. He can do rally after rally and seem as spry at the 40th one as he did at the first one. That’s an advantage he’ll have over someone like Biden, who’s so far been pampered and kept under wraps. Now the gloves are going to come off and we’ll find out if he’s got the stamina for what’s to come. Don’t be surprised if his fellow Democrats hit him on this point as well.

Biden to donors: World leaders almost begged me to do this and save the world from Trump

Westlake Legal Group b-13 Biden to donors: World leaders almost begged me to do this and save the world from Trump World Trump The Blog primary leaders Fundraisers democratic campaign biden 2020

This sounds like part of the origin story for the worst superhero movie ever, Captain Hairsniffer versus Lord Pussygrabber.

On the call [with fundraisers], an upbeat Biden said his candidacy was a calling, a duty — and that it’s not just Democrats or Americans who want him to run to stop President Donald Trump.

“I get calls from people all over the world — world leaders are calling me — and they’re almost begging me to do this, to save the country, save the world,” Biden said. One of the participants on the call stressed that Biden wasn’t making it sound as though he has a messiah complex, but rather that world leaders are looking toward the Democratic Party to defeat Trump, whether it’s Biden or another Democrat.

Let the battle be joined:

It’s odd that Trump would do Biden a solid there by implying that he’s not one of the “demented” candidates in the race but every good superhero movie involves some grudging respect between the two adversaries. If you believe the reporting, Trump does respect Biden — not his intellect or his politics but for his ability to compete for votes among parts of Trump’s own base. This new poll from Morning Consult won’t do anything to dissuade him:

Much has been said about Biden’s ability to compete with Trump in the Rust Belt but more should be said about his appeal to older voters nationally. He leads consistently in Democratic primary polls among senior citizens, a group that’s reliably GOP in the general election. If Biden’s old-school Democratic politics can peel off older voters who normally lean Republican, Trump has a problem.

Various media types have noted this morning how Biden’s launch video makes Trump the focus in a way that’s unusual by the standards of the rest of the Democratic field. Biden really is treating this election as a sort of superhero movie in which the good guy rises to restore order amid the chaos being wreaked by the bad guy:

Most Dems, from Bernie to Buttigieg, deride Trump personally but treat his election as an understandable, almost foreseeable consequence of deindustrialization and stagnant wages. The so-called deplorables aren’t deplorable, they’re just frustrated that the government isn’t doing more for them. Democrats can fix that. Biden, however, describes Trump’s presidency as an “aberrant moment in time,” even beginning his video with a reference to Charlottesville. There is a deplorable element that’s driving Trump, he implies, and he and the rest of the country are going to defeat it and get things back to “normal.” That’s a predictable message from a guy who served as VP before Trump took over, who’s aiming for the center of his party, and whose core demographic is older liberals. (Of which he’s one himself, of course.) It’s really no joke to say that Biden’s message is … make America great again.

His pitch will have two parts: (1) He’s Barack Obama’s true son and heir, which he’s counting on to win over black voters, and (2) he’s the only candidate who can beat Trump, which he’s counting on to win over all Democrats. (With good reason.) He’s led in almost every primary poll thus far, and not with the sort of paltry 15 percent topline that Jeb Bush had early in the 2016 race. Biden’s often up around 30 percent, a decent place to be in a field with 17 candidates; if he were to gain, say, 10 points over the next month as Democratic voters took a good look at him, he’d suddenly look formidable. He’s planning to roll out a bunch of endorsements this week too, believing that the support of big-name elected officials will build a sense of consensus around him early that’ll be hard to shake.

His biggest enemy early, and maybe for the duration, will be the media. My sense of them from social media, and there are a lot of them on social media, is that they’re itching to write a “Biden falls on his face” storyline. That’s partly ideological, as many would obviously prefer a more left-wing Democratic party, but mostly it’s driven by journalistic impulses about narratives. The “Biden crumbles” narrative practically writes itself — hubristic former VP who could never hack it as a presidential candidate swoops into the race as a frontrunner, is quickly buried under past ideological sins against wokeness and his own gaffes on the trail, and fades pathetically as it becomes clear that he’s badly out of touch with what his party has become. It’s the Jeb story arc but on a grander, sadder scale. The Bushes are American aristocrats and had two presidents in the family by the time Jeb ran; his failure was more about the exhaustion of a dynasty. Biden’s failure would be the failure of a nice working-class guy who achieved great success in politics but lacked the special mix of ideology, charisma, and timing that would have lifted him to the greatest success.

Plus, how boring would be a “Former VP wins presidency” storyline be to write compared to “Sanders victory ushers in new era, brings socialism to America after a century of trying”? The media will spend the entirety of his campaign looking for evidence to support that irresistible prefab “Joe Biden, tragic bridesmaid” narrative and the fact that he leads in all the polls right now will make the impetus to take him down a notch even more irresistible. I hope he’s prepared.
