EPIC: Tulsi Gabbard Calls Adam Kinzinger, John McCain and Evan McMullin Terrorist Enablers…

This is beyond epic.  Representative Tulsi Gabbard visited Syria and delivers big and bold truth to CNN upon her return interview.

Gabbard deconstructs the false narrative sold by the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama administration, John McCain, Adam Kinzinger and Evan McMullin -all of whom supported the various terrorist factions within Syria- and sets the record straight:

The “Rebels” in Syria are extremist terrorists.

CNN host Jake Tapper just didn’t know what to do with himself as Gabbard deconstructed his ideological, and brutally wrong, talking points.  Tapper left staring at the camera with that doofy expression, puzzled and wrinkled brow: “huh”?  Watch:

To further support what Tulsi Gabbard is explaining, previously we shared:

Were it not for an fortuitous, albeit innocuous, picture spotted today – a connection would never have been possible. As such please consider this outline an important addendum to The Benghazi Brief…. and bear with me as we attempt to outline something quite remarkable as it relates to the 2016 campaign against Donald Trump.

isis-brotherhood-1-kinzinger-mccain-mcmullinRepresentative Adam Kinzinger, Senator John McCain, candidate Evan McMullin

What you are about to read is specifically how the Muslim Brotherhood, and ISIS, connect to those outlined above – and how their individual behaviors within the 2016 election begin to make sense. Perhaps, like us, you will have an ah-ha moment.

The “Never Trump” coalition has always consisted of a few noisy and indecent politicians within Washington DC. Senator Ben Sasse, Senator Jeff Flake and Representative Adam Kinzinger the most noteworthy and vitriolic.

Whenever CNN, or for that matter any media, want a republican voice to argue against Donald Trump, in the “current days’ outrage du jour”, they call upon Kinzinger first and foremost. He seemingly loves the spotlight as much as he enjoys promoting himself on social media. In essence, he’s a proud #NeverTrumper.

We’ll come back to Kinzinger and McMullin in a moment. But first we must place the second set of puzzle pieces on the table.

When we did all the exhaustive research into the Benghazi Brief three years ago, one of the pictures that continued to draw our interest was this one:

mccain-in-syria

The picture above was taken during a time when Senator John McCain visited Syria, and the Western media were proclaiming there were “moderates” in the opposition to Bashir Assad. Senator McCain proclaimed this 2012 visit to be meeting with the “Free Syrian Army”. [Coincidentally, this was on the same trip where he met Ambassador Chris Stevens at the Benghazi courthouse in Libya for the last time].

However, at the same time McCain was trying to convince the world of moderate Syrian resistance, multiple voices within non-traditional journalism, and a large number of people doing independent research, reached the conclusion that al-qaeda and al-Nusra extremists had completely infiltrated the Syrian resistance groups, and a new militant Islamic network was forming.

“2012 NO ISLAM WITHOUT JIHAD” – members of the Free Syrian Army. Abu Khuder and his men fight for al-Qaida. They call themselves the ghuraba’a, or “strangers”, after a famous jihadi poem celebrating Osama bin Laden’s time with his followers in the Afghan mountains, and they are one of a number of jihadi organisations establishing a foothold in the east of the country now that the conflict in Syria has stretched well into its second bloody year.
They try to hide their presence. “Some people are worried about carrying the [black] flags,” said Abu Khuder. “They fear America will come and fight us. So we fight in secret. Why give Bashar and the west a pretext?” But their existence is common knowledge in Mohassen. Even passers-by joke with the men about car bombs and IEDs.

That network ultimately evidenced and defined itself as the Islamic State, or ISIS.

In 2013 and 2014, even though ISIS initially did not have a name, as the hardline extremists in Syria became more openly visible, eventually the western media accepted Raqqa and Aleppo had become the de-facto center of Syrian ISIS operations. In August of 2014 President Obama finally admitted the problem and stated his administration was caught off guard and did not have a strategy to combat them.

Back To The Photograph – The importance of the McCain photograph became increasingly interesting because ISIS as an extremist force became increasingly visible. As a direct consequence we were able to identify the ideology of the people in the picture:

mccain-in-syria-2-detail-2

There has been some skepticism as to #2 being al-Baghdadi himself, and Senator John McCain has strongly refuted this claim. However, there is more evidence to prove it is Baghdadi than to refute it’s not Baghdadi. Person #2 looks just like him:

bagdadi

mccain-syria-8-1

In addition, one of the important bits of evidence to prove #2 is indeed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is actually found in #1 Abu Mosa (ISIS Press Officer).

There is absolutely no doubt that #1 is the (now dead) Islamic State Press Officer Abu Mosa.

abu-mosa-2abu mosa dead

Abu Mosa was killed in August 2014. In 2012, during organization, Baghdadi would have a man with this level of importance to the Islamic State around him at the time this picture was taken.

However, lets look at #5 – “Mouaz Moustafa”, because he is the current person that should be of interest to everyone in the 2016 presidential discussion. Moustafa is the connective tissue per se’. In the photograph, he’s also Senator McCain’s intermediary:

mccain-in-syria-2-detailmccain-syria-9-1

Fast forward two intense years later and look where #5, Mouaz Moustafa shows up in 2014. And more specifically the two faces that show up with him:

kinzinger-3-w-mcmullin

Well lookie there. During a trip to Turkey in 2014 to discuss arming Syrian rebel groups, under the auspices of fighting ISIS, you see Representative Adam Kinzinger appear. Oh yeah, and who’s that other fellow circled in the meeting? ….why that’s our anti-Trump candidate Evan McMullin.

Huh, fancy that.

Spotting Evan McMullin conspicuously standing there in the picture made us want to go back to the CNN file footage from the time and see if he was actually visible in the report they filed from Turkey. Yup, he’s there alright.

Watch and spot him in the background during quite a bit of the footage:

Long before anyone heard about Evan McMullin running for President, there he is paling around with #NeverTrump Adam Kinzinger in Turkey chatting with the Muslim Brotherhood affiliates (guise SETF) who are essentially the political arm of ISIS under a differing name.

The declared purpose of the meeting was to discuss who and how to arm the entities within Syria. However, just like in 2012/2013 these same Brotherhood voices in 2014 are simply trying to present themselves as one thing, only to gain the goal of another. That’s ultimately the story behind the arms deals within The Benghazi Brief. That’s the lesson that should have been learned if the truth contained within the brief were ever to have larger public interest.

Additionally, all that said – it’s connections like these that make other things, like the opposition to Donald Trump, make much more sense.

Yup, “things that help make other things make much more sense”….

        Assad wins or al Nusra-ISIS wins. Denis was clear about that. The terrorists are using the battles to train more forces. He indicated that if Assad should fall, ISIS will have a huge platform to project their strength across the rest of the region–Jordan, Lebanon, the Gulf States, and Israel will be destabilized.

        Of course, Russia and Turkey and Iran will destroy every force pitted against the sovereign state of Syria. The war will be shorted if the next phases of ceasefire and reconciliation talks in Geneva follow the talks the last two day in Astana, Kazakhstan.

        In Astana, major opposition groups met and discussed the future political process.
        A new Syrian constitution in draft form has come from Putin/Kremlin and it indicates an autonomous region for Kurds (not along the border with Turkey), the northern border controlled by Syrian forces, other regions will have an option to differentiate with language and religion as always has been the protected state for minorities. There will be an election at some point. One term for seven years for the winner. No one expects anyone will defeat Assad. He has the vast majority support of the people.

        There is antipathy among the opposition political groups for Assad and for Iran and its Shiite militias which come from Iraq and Afghanistan. But those forces will go away over time, after al Nusra and ISIS are wiped out.

        The US seems to want to win Raqqa. It also wants to win Mosul in Iraq.
        Of course, they don’t have, nor will they unless Trump insists, enough troops. They use other proxies to do the heavy fighting.

        So far there is no indication of a US policy change in Syria. Mattis ordered bombing, which is what the US military does. Meanwhile, the flow of arms is coming from Ukraine and Bulgaria to Saudi and into ISIS and al Nusra. All American made. So, the US clearly is trying to cover the supply of weapons and ammo. Trump needs to end this pronto.

            First of all, this is only scratching the surface of a much larger problem. I really don’t care what the media pundits have to say about Asaad, as far as I am concerned they could be all lies and here is why. When you consider that Banks are wanting to create more debt in most countries around the world, and with the timing of the immigration crisis flooding Europe and trying to reach US shores as well, then it is easy to connect the dots. It is my belief that the world banks manufactured this crisis in order to create more debt, and Syria as one of a hand full of countries that don’t have a IMF, or Rothschild bank. was on a list long ago that needed to be brought to heel in order to be exploited. If one also considers Libya for the same reasons, and exacerbated by Ghadalfi’s intent to supersede the EURO for OIL fiat with a Gold back currency then it is not hard to figure out. The most important issue facing man kind today is Banking reform and the elimination of debt based currencies. Until that conversation starts to happen nothing is ever going to change. While I think Gabbards is sniffing around, she is a little naive to think that she is actually understanding the full picture of what the US as well as other countries have been playing interventionists over a long period of time means. Look at Canada and Australia, they have the most household debt than any other country in the G7, and they willingly are importing refugees and immigrants with nothing to back up their futures with growing economies and jobs awaiting, just more potential debt slaves, and more borrowing from banks to pay off their deficits. Not going to happen, but I might add it is all by design in order to have total world dominance, which is why the banks need to be stopped. A good start is defeating the EU!

This is why all the hospitals, schools, roads bridges power plants, anything to do with a modern infrastructure, was targeted, Isis was just cover. The purpose was to return Syria to the stone age and oust Assad using the CIA’s Libya/Iraq model (which has now failed in both Egypt and Syria).

          Excellent and eye-opening series. In the midst of watching it now. Did not know the extent Sarin gas has been used by rebels against the people of Syria. Much more than a couple of times. Assad still being blamed by media. Lastest video in series I saw mentioned that Russia collected evidence showing material used in attacks is from stockpiles taken from Libya & that Chris Stevens was more concerned by the Sarin gas recovery and that ties partly into the reason for his allowed demise. Russia sent evidence to Hague. Perhaps that’s why there has been such an emphasis on demonizing Russia of late. Series is excellent in showing the involvement of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation- wasn’t aware of the length of time they’ve been at it though. Mind-boggling

      So, there are places you attack in the oil industry that cripple it. Oil wells are expensive and take a long time to repair. You can take out their oil supply without destroying the oil industry infrastructure. That way Syria can generate money to pay for its rebuilding.

      Naturally, the report was we did the wrong thing.

      US is illegally in Syria. The best thing is to cooperate with Russia or get out and stay out.

      All these people who think we can bully the world don’t get it.
      China is rolling around its ICBMs, a little sign that their very mobile nuclear strike force is up and prepared for whatever we think we may do. They don’t have 1/20th of the nukes we do, but they can obliterate most of the US in a counter strike. 3000 miles of tunnels in their mountains, rail and truck mounted systems, submarines with missiles makes it very probable their counterstrike will destroy us, even if we destroy them on a first strike.

      Russia is not blinking over all our NATO gyrations. If someone thinks in the Pentagon or Brussels that Russia is nervous about tanks and troops with US insignia, they are delusional.

      Syria is gone to Russia and Iran. Turkey is gone to Russia. They are now flying combat missions together. That’s a NATO nation flying with Russia, supposedly NATO’s great enemy. Today, Libya’s General in the East of the country and the central “government” have signed a deal for Russian weapons. With that will come training and probably some tactical battlefield “guidance”. Russia knows how to fight these wars. They didn’t want to have to come that far to destroy ISIS, but the US has made a mess it can’t finish off.

          Hope so. We can extricate from Syria easily. Iraq is huge because that is still trying to balance three forces internally. Unless we just write it off and leave. Kurds have oil, Shiites have oil. Sunnis (from whence came ISIS) have sand. The government is never going to be not under the influence of Iran. And if Iraq goes completely under Iran’s control, Saudi Arabia will need protection from the Shiites outside and the Shiites inside Saudi, and in Yemen.

          All the stratagems of the last 15 years have come a cropper.

          This is why Trump wants us to kill ISIS and leave. There is nothing but chaos because of the Shiite Sunni split.

          Perhaps, with Russia knitting Iran and Turkey into a Syrian coalition to fight ISIS and AQ, they can also manage Iraq when we leave.

          Russia is doing something interesting with Qatar, in Russia. They sold a small percentage of their Rosneft Oil Company to Qatar and got Qatar to pump in billions in investment for development. The Gulf States have finally seen the light that they can’t remain stable relying only on oil and gas with oil no longer at $100 and probably will be at the $50-60 range for the next many years. Russia has big development upside. Putin is attracting investors, even from ISIS and AQ sponsor nations.

          And of course, the war has been a spectacular showcase of Russian jet fighters, and their incredible artillery and various other weapon systems. So he is selling lots of weapons to countries everywhere.

        I agree – not propaganda – but it is a reversal of strategy by the Dems. They’re trying to get out of the hole they dug themselves into with Obama, electing Trump. It’s a cowardly reversal of position. They see that Hillary and now Obama are gone. They have nothing, and their Syria position is going to die. Time to go with the flow, and push “electable Tulsi”. She’s their next Jimmah Cartah, dragging all the mice and rats back into the White House with her.

        It is smart. They’re trying to outflank the dying McMuffin wing. Pace Trump with Tulsi and have her survive while the RINO Syria Hawks die. Smart, smart, smart.

      No, Assad should have never been challenged by the US. It was bad enough that Obama and Clinton ruined Libya by taking out Gaddafi, then they wanted to double down with taking out Assad and they funded ISIS. Gabbard is 100% correct.

    Something I’ve never understood about this is obamas motivations. Why did he want regime change in Muslim countries? Egypt Libya syria? Is he doing it for the Muslim brotherhood? Is he an extremist Muslim himself? Is he doing it for the globalists to cause a reason for refugees to be brought here? All of the above? Something I’ve missed? Oil?

For example there is no evidence that Assad used chemical weapons and lots of evidence that the our “rebels” did using CW’s from Libya (weapons liberated by Clinton). Also Assad did not “fire the first shot” in this civil. The CIA used foreign jihadists to ignite the civil war in the same way they did in the Ukraine. In the Ukraine the CIA used neo-Nazi groups – in Syria the CIA used Al Qaeda fighters from Libya.

    Can someone kindly explain this a little bit more for me?

    Does it all come down to the “UniParty” wanting to overthrow Assad, much in the way “we” overthrew Saddam Hussein in Iraq? And like “we” did with Gaddafi?

    Do the UniParty/U.S./Black Hats really just want to overthrow these leaders by saying they are butchers and they gas their own people, just to let “rebels” take over? (Rebels meaning terrorists, but they are called freedom-loving rebels).

    That way, “we” get control of these countries for their oil, their strategic locations, IMF/World Bank, etc. etc.? And all the while, the military-industrial complex gets some “nice” fat targets like ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Al-Nusra to “fight”. (We all know we could blow those terrorist up in a few good weeks of fighting if “we” wanted to, but it’s much more profitable if the “war” drags on for years, or even decades).

    Someone tell me if I’m too much of a conspiracy theorist, please. I’m trying to see the big picture and play 23-dimensional chess like our wonderful President Trump, but I’m worried I got lost along the way.

    I echo other comments you have all written earlier in this thread: Why is this democrat congressperson allowed to go on non-interrupted? Is she telling the truth? Are they setting her up for 2 years? 4 years? 6 years? Is she just going against what many republicans are saying (about the U.S. needing to side with the ‘rebels’?) Is that as deep as it goes, or is the rabbit hole much deeper and darker?

    Do you think anyone in the world actually knows the WHOLE truth? Do you think there is someone who can actually see every angle of the picture? (besides Trump; I know he will be able to see and understand the full picture, so long as the intelligence he gets is legitimate!)

    How can 17 Intelligence agencies be so wrong? I can’t think it’s ALL ineptitude. You have to imagine they were told to come up with the conclusions they have by the highest levels like our previous president (what was his name again????).

    I can’t believe that will last much longer with Trump at the helm. He has too many allies here in the U.S. (white hats, so to speak) for the black hats to take him down.

He warned the Obama administration early on that any attempt to overthrow Assad would lead to the emergence of ISIS and the destruction of Syria. He was FIRED for telling the truth. Under Obama all intelligence agencies were politicized to the point that their final act was to try to undermine an incoming President with a smear campaign.

      NeverSuspect,
      Many of us have reason to believe that Anti-President Zero is an Islamist.

      By most Muslim customs he is regarded a Muslim.
      His father was Muslim.
      His Step-Father was Muslim.

      He was raised 1st six years in a Muslim country.
      He attended there a Madrassa, where no doubt he repeated the Shahada, the Muslim Declaration of Faith, many many times.
      In Islamic law, saying the Sahada makes you a Muslim, irrevocably. (Some say there’s an age until which the Shahada doesn’t really count. Okay, then why does being born of a Muslim father count at birth?)

      His “wedding band,” appears to some experts as having the first half of the Shahada inscribed on ther outer circumference in highly stylized Arabic script. He wore it for ten years prior to his marriage, where he gave it to Michelle to return at the ceremony.

      His chief advisor slash puppeteer was Valerie Jarret, an Iranian, practicing Muslim.

      He loves the Muslim Brotherhood, MB hereafter, installing many MB in his Administration and throughout the Federal bureaucracy.

      He permitted the CIA to be run by Brennan, a Muslim Convert, considered by many to be an Islamist.

      He abandoned Iraq, where plans had been to have 20,000 troops on hand for training, defense, spine stiffening for Iraqi troops, and preventing the excesses of their new Shite president who so abused the Sunnis that ISIS easily blossomed out of the remnants of remaining al-Queda and disaffected Sunnis.

      He handed Iran nuclear weapons. Ending a raft of sanctions that took decades to build up, with Iran immediately publucly rejecting much of the accord, and refusing access to their Parchin under-mountain chief nuclear weaponization research facility. Of the few remaining accessible sites, we had to give them 30 days notice, so they could clear all equipment and decontaminate it.

      He gave Iran over 150 BILLION dollars. 1.6 million of it in cash, not US currency, Euros and Swiss notes and Krugerands, gold, which they would not release their American hostages until they had the money.

      Iran took new hostages shortly thereafter.

      He opened the US to over a million Muslim immigrants, before the Syrian “refugees” from which we seem to have no refuge.
      He parrotted CAIR’s lines.

      He set off the Arab Winter by signalling, in his Cairo speech the US wouldn’t stand in the way of revolutions in the ME.
      He gave Egypt to the Muslim Brotherhood, who flooded the Sinai with jihadis, and strongly opposed their ouster a year later.

      He destroyed “dictatorships,” one after another, even one’s friendly to us with a rare Peace Accord with Israel that they actually honored. Leaving the Islamists and ISIS to take over.

      He sought to destroy Syria just the same, leaving it to the Monsters, and setting up a deliberate invasion of Europe by “refugees” that had refused refuge in Saudi Arabia.

      His antipathy to Israel exceeded even Carter’s, denying them access to US munitions stored on Israeli soil as part of a defense pact, during a grevious war as their munitions ran low.

      He is the only US president to betray Israel at the UN, an institution whose chief occupation was and is the continual condemnation of Israel, disqualifying the UN completely from pretending peaceful abmitions and a paragon of fairness.

      That move could cost Israel her next war, but we won’t betray her ever again, God Willing.
      He snuggled up to Israel’s enemies continually.

      That’s all I have time for, I’m on a late start already!

      There’s much more demonstrating the reason that the five-daily Muslim calls to prayer of the Muezzin are the prettiest sound he knows.

      He also, during his first campaign, speaking in an interview with the disgusting George Stephanopolous, began a sentence stating “My Muslim faith…” at which point his interlocutor interrupted him to remind/insist that he was a Christian!

      Incidently, his horrible “pastor” of twenty years, Reverend Wright, was a “former” Muslim, and I fully believe he is to Muslims desiring to fake out the American public what money laundering is to ill-gotten funds.

      Have a good one!

    President Trump has stated he is against American involvement in foreign affairs unless it is in American interests AND he wants to eradicate ISIS. So I can see in theory how those two positions mesh. However, in practice I’m not sure it is achievable, at least not easily. When ISIS is out in the open, so to speak, as they are in Syria, hitting them is an effective measure toward our strategic objective. But when ISIS goes underground and fights a stealth gorilla war, how can they be eradicated without violating the sovereignty of another country. It seems that although President Trump is being honest is his pledge to eradicate ISIS, the practical operations required to do so will violate his other pledge to not get America involved in another war, such as to attack another country for harboring ISIS.

    It seems to be a very sticky wicket.

        And we pay 2-6 times as much per unit than the Russians. And their development time is much faster and they test things realistically. In Syria they have tested 150 new weapons systems of all kinds from rifles, to ammo, to EW, to laser guided and smart ammunition.

            I found an interesting article on Dennis Kucinich’s page about Syria & it mentions the moving of small arms from Libya to Syria. Says it was Gen Patraeus who drew plan up & it was highly secretive.

            “In September 2011, the Saudis and Turks not only wanted the US to provide arms to the opposition. “They wanted the US to provide anti-aircraft missiles and anti-tank missiles,” recalled the ex-official.

            Turkey even offered to send troops into Syria to overthrow Assad, but only if US and NATO agreed to create a “no-fly zone” to protect them.

            But Obama refused to provide US arms to the Syrian rebels and also opposed the Sunni foes of Assad providing such heavy weapons. “He wasn’t willing to go along with anything except small arms,” said the former official.

            Apparently to assuage the dissatisfaction of the Sunni allies, then-director of the CIA David Petraeus devised a plan, which Obama approved, to help move the small arms from Libyan government stocks in Benghazi to Turkey.

            Confirming the 2014 story by Seymour Hersh, the ex-official recalled: “It was highly secret but officials involved in the Middle East learned of the programme by word of mouth.”

    Adam Kinzinger is my congressman. When he was first running for the congress he held a town hall meeting at a local high school that my wife and I attended. I’m a dyed in the wool Christian and conservative and I was hoping that sending Mr. Kinzinger to Washington would help to tip the balance in the GOP caucus from the deaf elites to true conservatism. He spoke and hit on several issues that sounded good if he followed through on them. This was in the early stages of the tea party and I asked him if he was aligned with the tea party. His answer was evasive and I didn’t have a chance at a follow up.

    But something happened which felt weird or forced in a way that left me with an uneasy feeling. He touted his military service which was good, but then he talked about an incident that happened where he went to the aid of a woman being attacked and he was heralded as a hero. He even had copies of a newspaper article that told the story and showed him to be valorous and selfless. It was a nice story but it smacked of tooting his own horn and it didn’t feel right. But, he was better than the alternative (how many times have conservatives said that over the past couple decades) so I stuck a sign in my yard, put a bumper sticker on my car, and voted for him.

    Then I watched how he voted in Congress and it didn’t take long to see he was just another establishment republican. I knew then that he didn’t go to Congress to represent me, and now I know he went to Congress to represent the things I’m against. I am one of the forgotten men that President Trump talked about. I hope with his election I finally have representation in the government. I think I do.

    It frightens me to read references being made in favor of Gabber here based on her appearance. No more important than the fact she is female or she speaks any language other than our national language, just as it should never have been important that Obama appeared to be black. What I heard from her speech was she’s an ordinary politician. A typical self serving, self congratulating sickening every day POLITICIAN. To whomever the same type person Elizabeth might be, taking a foolish selfie with young men being trained to hate her and hope in their hearts to kill her if possible some day, let me just say this: Lady, you simply are clueless and stupid, which makes me assume you are trying to place yourself in the political world someday, because you do show you have what it will take. You are full of self congratulatory feelings about yourself, clueless, really dumb, and we don’t want or need any more of your type on taxpayer funded travel expenditure rolls. YUK.

    Unfortunately most of the average Americans will never read this information because they say that they are worried about the terrorist threat from isis and jihadists; however they do not want to take the 5 minutes it takes to read the article and think about it. It’s more important to worry about what high score they got on a new game on their cell phone or watch the not so real drama of modern reality TV. You can not defeat an enemy threatening to kill you and your family unless you know who and what that enemy is and what they are planning to do with your weaknesses. It doesn’t have to be a general to figure out how to defeat the jihad…it takes a national level of citizens participating in the decision process. Our generals know how to win this war. The problem is that Americans don’t discuss the details amongst themselves and support the military efforts of an all volunteer force. They say “Thank you for your service “, but very few of them have any idea or interest in what it takes to defeat an evil ideology of worldwide domination by despots and so called theocracies that are in reality very sophisticated multinational gangs seeking political and financial gain through global threats and terrorism. If the American people are going to help defeat the threat, they have to get more involved in the process of understanding the enemy, and supporting the forces dedicating their daily lives and families’ sacrifices for the American people. I appreciate their thanks for my 24 years of service through near constant Combat in five continentstar. But please don’t thank me if you have no idea what I have done. My thirteen life changing injuries from decades of deployments to places no normal person will ever travel remind me of the price of a safer America and a safer world. Are we really safer or have we been holding back our nation’s top military minds in hopes of loowing like everyone’s global friend? I am not promoting unrestricted militarism, but rather saying if the American public will not educate themselves sufficiently to make conscious and important decisions about how to beat the most dangerous enemy since the fall of 20th century communism and the Cold War, then do not tell the men and women of these American armed forces how to fight the enemy. Soldiers want to come home and have a life beyond the walls of combat deployment fatigue from decades of experiences no one should ever face and carry on their backs for the rest of their lives. If you won’t fight to win, why fight at all? I am not addressing this editorial to the average Joe or Josephina…I am addressing our elected Congress who have been elected to help us win this global warming. It is winnable…just let the professionals do their job, stay out of the way if you are not in it to win, and let me rest in peace someday. America’s wars are started by old men and women in Washington DC, but won by young men and women who recognize the ability of their generals to meet the enemy on the battlefield of America’s choice, on the enemies’ soil, not ours. And these young heroes have a choice in life. They understand the enemy. Politicians and pundits do not. Washington…get out of the way and let us win this war so that my children don’t sit in their recliner at home when they are only 52 years young thinking that the past 24 years were all for nothing. Thanks for reading this if you still are. Wars are meant to be won or lost, not used as political and financial fulcrums. The weights on the ends of the moment arms are measured in lives lost and vets physically and psychologically destroyed while still alive. God Bless these United States of America…as long as they remain United under God.

      Awesome link. Yes – she is definitely politically scattered – this is exactly what I was thinking. She vacillates between right and left, and the thing that worries me is that she is sometimes a golden opportunity for the hard left. She would have the Obamanauts back in the White House in a heartbeat, controlling her badly like a puppet with a mind of its own, but still a puppet.

      That said, I think her thinking about Syria is valid. She went over there, and walked away with the same impressions as Ben Carson and everybody else who actually goes there, and gets beyond the S.E. Cupp / CNN / Little Bana The Poor Syrian Girl media filter.

    Search the name Eva Bartlett and watch some of her posted videos. Gabbard’s observations from her actual visit with people in Allepo and other areas were spoken by Bartlett months ago with NO press coverage. Maybe now enough light can be put on this to start some real investigations for war crimes by McCain and his buddies.

      Yes, and there was somebody else, too – some young guy who made it out of the war zone in Aleppo. Powerful stuff, talking about what it was like to get free from the jihadists. After what he said, I had NO DOUBTS that the civilians shot in the back while fleeing Aleppo, and being moaned over as war crimes by S.E. Cupp, UniParty mouthpiece, were actually shot by the back by the jihadists.

    I rejoice at the Deep State line on this is, “How dare she; she didn’t tell us or get approval ahead of time.”

    Wasn’t Major Gabbard (and, yes, she is still on active duty with the Hawaii Army NG) about the first person who met with Trump after the election?

    Trump is three steps ahead, as always, and running the table. So well played! Praise Yahweh!

    Rep. Gabbard made a public statement about her meeting with President-Elect Trump. It is at https://medium.com/@TulsiGabbard/my-meeting-with-donald-trump-dadffadf36b5#.p13rr1g6k

    My meeting with Donald Trump
    As you have no doubt heard by now, I met with President-elect Donald Trump earlier today.
    He asked me to meet with him to discuss our current policies regarding Syria, our fight against terrorist groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS, as well as other foreign policy challenges we face.
    It would have been easier for me to refuse this meeting. The establishment and social media has been talking about this all day. But I never have and never will play politics with American and Syrian lives.
    In fact, like President Obama, I strongly believe that now is the time for us to put our country first, and come together, regardless of political party, and tackle the many challenges we face.
    This was an opportunity to advocate for peace — and I felt it was important to take the opportunity to meet with the President-elect to counteract neocons’ steady drumbeats of war, which threaten to drag us into an escalation of the war to overthrow the Syrian government.
    This war has already cost hundreds of thousands of lives and forced millions of refugees to flee their homes in search of safety for themselves and their families. It has also strengthened al-Qaeda and other violent, extremist groups in the region. It would have been irresponsible not to accept this invitation. I feel it is my duty to take every single opportunity I get to advocate for peace, no matter the circumstances of those meetings.
    I shared with him my grave concerns that escalating the war in Syria by implementing a so-called no fly/safe zone would be disastrous for the Syrian people, our country, and the world. It would lead to more death and suffering, exacerbate the refugee crisis, strengthen ISIS and al-Qaeda and bring us into a direct conflict with Russia–potentially resulting in a nuclear war. We discussed my bill to end our country’s illegal war to overthrow the Syrian government and the need to focus our precious resources on rebuilding our own country, and on defeating al-Qaeda, ISIS, and other terrorist groups who pose a threat to the American people.
    In addition, where I disagree with President-elect Trump on issues, I will not hesitate to express that disagreement. You didn’t send me to Washington to make friends with the political elite. You sent me to represent you, and I am committed to doing just that.
    In short: I will never allow partisanship to undermine our national security when the lives of countless people lay in the balance.
    If that earns me enemies in Washington or at the State Department, then so be it.
    I hope you’ll continue to stand with me and stay engaged. The cause of peace is too great for us to allow political disagreements or partisanship to stand in our way.
    Aloha,
    Tulsi Gabbard

    Tulsi is only stating the obvious. Seymour Hersh revealed that the Obama administration was transferring weapons from Libya to Syria, via the rat line.
