Found her! What does Tulsi Gabbard mean by this…
“the permanent Washington and the Biden regime.“
I KNOW she is telling Republican Voters – WHO LOST – they didn’t lose, and, thus the creation of the “permanent Washington.” . This article says these are Gabbards opinions. Does she sit on the Supreme Court? Is she the real Rightful President when you do the ‘Republican permanent math” that would have kept Trump in office, thus cheating 81,283,098 Democrat Voters – AND THEIR CHILDREN – out of THEIR VICTORY! Of course ‘The Eighty Million’ want to see Donald Trump – GO TO PRISON for trying to steal the election with the help of the WEAPONIZED Attorney General, Bill Barr. There is no proof any law enforcement people – and their families – have it out for Donald Trump. Let’s put the truth in this statement….
“We grew up believing that, “Hey, our government will apply the law equally to all Americans, whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat.” We’re seeing more and more that, that country no longer exists.
“We grew up believing that, “Hey, our government will apply VOTING VICTORIES equally to all Americans, whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat.” We’re seeing more and more that, that country no longer exists”.
If Trump had been able TO HANDLE DEFEAT, and graciously turn over the reins of power to Biden, then he would not have taken any secret documents. How many Democrats AND THEIR CHILDREN believe Gabbard came up with these words – on her own? Maybe she wants to retract them – for the SAKE OF ALL AMERICA’S CHILDRED?
” We’re seeing more and more that, that country no longer exists”.
Oh no! Maybe Tulsi can get her Beloved Montser to go on Fox and concede the election for all the children who want to become adults – in a True Democracy? How many Republicans wouldn’t mind if Trump was arrested and convicted so he will not be able to run for office?
“Attorney General Merrick Garland has already issued a stark warning to anyone who dares to disagree with these tactics that are all hallmarks of a dictatorship.“
Four million American will turn 18. Will the majority register as Democrats. Have Republican think tanks – done the math? Gabbard is saying VOTING and JUSTICE no long work in OUR Democracy. The ex-president backs her up. Does Gabbard suggest another INSURRECTION will work?
4,000,000 young people will turn 18 this year in the United States. This group alone could determine the future of our country if they register and vote. Yet in 2020, 18 year olds’ voter turnout rate was only 46% (12% in South Dakota!). More than 2,000,000 of them did not vote!
Speaking on Fox News amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, former Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard falsely claimed that Russia and the U.S. are largely the same when it comes to the suppression of free speech.
The March 15 claim by Gabbard, a former congresswoman from Hawaii, came shortly after Russia arrested a journalist who protested the war on state TV and enacted a law threatening up to 15 years of prison time for spreading “false information” about the Ukraine invasion.
Fox News host Jesse Watters teed up Gabbard’s segment by playing a clip from ABC’s “The View,” when a host suggested that Gabbard and Fox News host Tucker Carlson should be federally investigated for “shilling” for Russian President Vladimir Putin. Watters then claimed Democrats are “seeking out ways to silence free speech.”
Biden won 81,283,098 votes, or 51.3 percent of the votes cast. He is the first U.S. presidential candidate to have won more than 80 million votes. Trump won 74,222,958 votes, or 46.8 percent of the votes cast. That’s more votes than any other presidential candidate has ever won, with the exception of Biden.
Tulsi Gabbard voiced her concerns about the long-term ramifications of the FBI’s raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence Friday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
TULSI GABBARD: Now, whatever your views are on Donald Trump, there is no denying that the unprecedented raid on his Palm Beach home earlier this week has set our country on a dangerous new course, and there’s no turning back. The FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago changed the country that we grew up in.
We grew up believing that, “Hey, our government will apply the law equally to all Americans, whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat.” We’re seeing more and more that, that country no longer exists. Law enforcement at the highest levels of government, whether it’s the DOJ, the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, and now even the IRS have been weaponized to target the political opponents of the uni-party, the permanent Washington and the Biden regime. Attorney General Merrick Garland has already issued a stark warning to anyone who dares to disagree with these tactics that are all hallmarks of a dictatorship.
ATTORNEY GENERAL MERRICK GARLAND: “Let me address recent unfounded attacks on the professionalism of the FBI and Justice Department agents and prosecutors. I will not stand by silently when their integrity is unfairly attacked.”
So, you are not allowed to disagree with the FBI. That is the new message. The security state will label you an extremist for daring to challenge or disagree with the regime’s weaponization of law enforcement.

“The Justice Department also subpoenaed surveillance footage from Mar-a-Lago recorded over a 60-day period, including views from outside the storage room. According to a person briefed on the matter, the footage showed that, after one instance in which Justice Department officials were in contact with Mr. Trump’s team, boxes were moved in and out of the room,” The Times reported. “That activity prompted concern among investigators about the handling of the material. It is not clear when precisely the footage was from during the lengthy back-and-forth between Justice Department officials and Mr. Trump’s advisers, or whether the subpoena to Mr. Trump seeking additional documents had already been issued.
Attorney General William P. Barr issued a new policy Monday addressing opening investigations of the election. Despite its conspicuous timing — just days into President Trump’s attempt to bluff past the fact that he lost to Joe Biden — several commentators have said there’s nothing to fear from Barr’s new policy. This internal Justice Department memo, they say, is supposedly designed to placate Trump by creating the appearance that the department is doing something to cast doubt on the election results; it signifies nothing more.
We disagree: That’s a dangerous misreading of what the Barr memo portends.
An examination of the document shows that Barr has taken extraordinary steps to unleash powers within the Justice Department that permit far more than appeasement of the president with empty gestures. Barr is, once again, mixing politics and Justice Department policy, permitting the department to be weaponized to try to overturn the results of this election. The effects of this new policy could be realized within days. Indeed, Barr states in the memo that he has already authorized election investigations. Watch out for announcements (or leaks) of federal inquests that appear to provide a veneer of substance to bolster Trump and his attorney Rudolph W. Giuliani’s empty allegations calling into question the rightful outcome of the election.
The Barr memo contains three revealing elements, each of which lowers the threshold for instituting an improper political investigation.
First, Barr changes the timing and goal of an election investigation by the department. Prior Justice Department policy forswore seeking to reopen an election after it ended, and thus called for only covert investigative steps so as not to interfere with voting or the counting and certification process. Except when there was reason to think records might be destroyed corruptly or to further an ongoing scheme, the department was to avoid overt steps until “the election to which they pertain had been certified and the time for contesting the election results had expired.”
But Barr has changed the very goal of these investigations, explicitly authorizing actions before certifications, labeling the previous approach as “passive” and “delayed,” such that federal agents could not realistically “rectify” an election. Such rectification has not previously been a goal of federal enforcement by the elections branch. Yet now, Barr cryptically notes that he has already authorized such investigations.
Second, Barr lowers the threshold for opening an investigation, noting that even mere “irregularities” can be investigated — as opposed to only potential crimes. Shockingly, nowhere does he say that the allegations must rise to a criminal level. Until Monday, long-standing policy has explicitly held that noncriminal irregularities must be redressed through other means, such as recounts, educational programs, disciplinary actions and private lawsuits, most of which the federal government would have played no part in. But conveniently, as Trump pursues evidence-free claims of irregularities, Barr conspicuously fails to note a criminal threshold that prosecutors should be using to assess the propriety of pursuing cases. Now all the evidence needed is allegations that aren’t “specious, speculative, fanciful, or far-fetched” — bald adjectives that set a low bar that can be easily manipulated to justify opening an investigation.
Appearing on MSNBC on Sunday afternoon, one of Donald Trump’s biographers speculated that the former president might have thought he could cash in on some of the documents that he took from the White House that the FBI confiscated from Mar-a-Lago on Monday.
Speaking with host Alex Witt, Bloomberg editor Tim O’Brien speculated that Trump may have had a childlike fascination with some of the papers he took and thought he could sell them at some point.
A former White House adviser said she once found classified documents “in the ladies’ room.”
- Olivia Troye served as homeland security and counterterrorism adviser to former Vice President Mike Pence.
- Her comments come days after the FBI raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate and seized boxes of classified documents.
Former FBI deputy director McCabe said Trump has been “basically at war” with the agency since 2016.
- McCabe said the sustained attacks have had “a corrosive effect” on morale within the agency.
- He also said political leaders haven’t been forceful enough in refuting attacks against the FBI.
Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe on Friday said that former President Donald Trump has been “basically at war” with the law enforcement agency since 2016 and warned of the risks posed to agents after the former president’s Mar-a-Lago residence was searched by federal officials last week.
Vindman Calls Gabbard ‘Agent of Russian Disinformation’ After Fox Segment

Pictured above, on the left Gabbard speaks during a campaign event on February 9, 2020 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and on the right is Vindman during a hearing before the House Intelligence Committee in the Longworth House Office Building on Capitol Hill November 19, 2019 in Washington, DC.
Gabbard was filling in as a host on Fox News‘ Tucker Carlson Tonight when she said that Europe is in a “massive energy crisis right now” because of the sanctions that were placed on Russia, which she described as “nothing short of a modern day siege.”
“This comes at a great cost, but Joe Biden told us ‘hey, this is necessary to defend Ukraine,'” the former congresswoman said, referring to the president’s remarks in February when he said that “defending freedom will have costs for us as well, here at home.”
Biden also said at the time that he will take action to make sure “the pain of our sanctions is targeted at the Russian economy, not ours.” The U.S. banned all Russian oil imports in March in response to the invasion.
“Despite their lectures and their crocodile tears, it’s never been about morality,” Gabbard said Friday. “It’s not about the people of Ukraine or protecting democracy. This is about regime change in Russia and exploiting this war to strengthen NATO and feed the military industrial complex.”
In response to her remarks, Vindman, who was dismissed by former President Donald Trump in 2020 from his position as director for European Affairs for the United States National Security Council (NSC), called Gabbard a “liar” who is seeking “self promotion.”
“You are a liar @TulsiGabbard. You lie for notoriety and self promotion. Worse yet, as an agent of Russian disinformation you promote Russian aggression and endanger America. You have picked a side. Your side is Russia and authoritarianism,” he wrote on Twitter on Saturday.
The then-president fired Vindman after he testified at his impeachment trial. Gabbard defended Trump’s decision at the time and said during an interview on Fox News that “ultimately, whether people like it or not, there are consequences to elections and the president has, within his purview, to make the decisions about who he’d like serving in his Cabinet.”
Meanwhile, the former congresswoman has been a vocal critic of Biden and has previously warned the Biden administration to take the Russian nuclear war threat seriously.
“What [U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin] is not telling the American people is that Russia has also made it clear that if we even get close to ‘winning’ or achieving this mission and goal he has outlined, Russia has said very clearly they will have no other option than to resort to the use of nuclear weapons,” she said during an appearance with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson in May. “This is not fear-mongering to point this out, the American people need to know this is the track that this administration has put us on and [that] very dire consequences will occur if we continue down to this path. This is the reality we are facing.”
“I think that it’s unfortunate that we have someone on this stage that is attempting to be the Democratic nominee for president of the United States, who during the Obama administration spent four years full time on Fox News criticizing President Obama,” Harris said.
Newsweek reached out to Gabbard’s media team for comment.
