Twitter War Breaks Out Between “Russian Asset” Tulsi Gabbard And “Warmongering Queen” Hillary Clinton

Donate

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

Democratic presidential candidate and Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard – who like Trump was quickly put in the crosshairs of the military industrial complex, the deep state and the pro-war Atlantic Council for her de-interventionist foreign policy – fired back at Hillary Clinton, accusing her of being behind a “concerted campaign” to destroy her reputation and challenged her to stop hiding and enter the 2020 presidential race. Earlier in the day, Hillary Clinton floated a conspiracy theory that the Russians are “grooming” the Hawaii congresswoman to be a third-party candidate in 2020, while claiming 2016 Green Party nominee Jill Stein is “also” a Russian asset.

“Great! Thank you Hillary Clinton,” Gabbard tweeted late on Friday afternoon. “You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain.”

“From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies and powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose.” Gabbard added.

“Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly,” Gabbard called out Clinton, who has dropped hints that she might run again in 2020 as a rematch for her 2016 humiliation.

During this week’s Democratic debate, Gabbard blasted debate co-sponsors CNN and the New York Times for “smearing” her along similar lines. CNN commentator Bakari Sellers called her a “puppet” for the Russian government and the Times reported on her “frequent” mentions in Russian state news media.

“Just two days ago, The New York Times put out an article saying that I’m a Russian asset and an Assad apologist and all these different smears,” Gabbard said. “This morning, a CNN commentator said on national television that I’m an asset of Russia — completely despicable.”

Clinton, who has blamed everyone – from the FBI to Russia – except herself for her 2016 loss to Donald Trump, said in a Thursday interview on President Obama aide David Plouffe’s “Campaign HQ” podcast that “Russians” were “grooming” someone in the Democrat primary field to run as a third-party candidate.

“I’m not making any predictions but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said, in apparent reference to Gabbard, a Hawaii Army National Guard major who served in Iraq. “She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far.”

While not calling out Gabbard by name, her spokesperson later told CNN, “if the nesting doll fits,” leaving no room for doubt.

And just to make sure she finds yet another scapegoat for her loss, Clinton also accused 2016 Green Party nominee, Jill Stein, who ran against her and Donald Trump in 2016, of also being an asset of Russia: “That’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she’s also a Russian asset.”

Earlier in the interview, Clinton hinted that the Trump 2020 campaign is still in “contact with the Russians,” and that “we have to assume that since it worked for them, why would they quit?”

“Donald Trump is Vladimir Putin’s dream,” Clinton added. “I don’t know what Putin has on him – whether its both personal and financial, I assume it is. But more than that, there’s this bizarre adulation Trump has for dictators.”

Clinton also insisted that Russia “did affect the outcome of the election” in 2016, despite the DOJ concluding otherwise.

Of all the candidates in the crowded Democrat primary field, Gabbard has been under the heaviest fire from journalists who previously boosted Clinton, accused of being an “Assad apologist” over a fact-finding trip she took to Syria years ago.

During the 2016 campaign, Gabbard resigned as vice-chair of the Democratic National Committee after endorsing Bernie Sanders for the party’s presidential nomination. Clinton beat Sanders out for the nomination largely due to support from the unaccountable “superdelegates,” and thanks to Wikileaks, it later emerged that her campaign had taken over the DNC entirely, a discovery that led to the resignation of then-DNC head Debbie Wasserman Schultz,  which might help explain Gabbard’s line about “the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long.”

Shortly after Gabbard’s tweets, the Clinton campaign promptly responded, in what now appears will be a lengthy war of words between the two women as Hillary prepares to unveil her final presidential campaign. As CNN reporter, Dan Merica tweeted, Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill has responded to Gabbard’s response, saying:  “Divisive language filled with vitriol and conspiracy theories? Can’t imagine a better proof point than this,” although it wasn’t quite clear how Gabbard’s response to Clinton’s original conspiracy theories was proof of anything besides defense against unsubstantiated allegations.

Shortly thereafter, Democratic candidate Cory Booker, whose odds of winning the nomination, decided to join in the catfight, reacting to Gabbard with a GIF:

And since, at its core this is a feud between the military industrial complex at the heart of the US government, and those who would rather not send the stock price of Lockheed, Raytheon and Boeing to new all time highs in exchange for the mass murder of innocent civilians, the neocons were not far behind with former U.N. ambassador Samantha Power quickly tweeting in response to Clinton’s comments: “If @TulsiGabbard runs, it wd be a huge windfall for Trump, Assad, Putin, Xi”

      Florian; A great quote from the article :)
      “You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain.”

      • FlorianGeyer

        Yes, Brilliant.

        Tulsi for President, and a complete cleanout immediately .

      • Xoli Xoli

        I am also impress by this quote.

  • BMWA1

    Warmonger Queen. Perfect!

  • Hide Behind

    Only one reason to favor.Tulsi over everyone of both parties running for President; she is honest.
    And being honest is not wanted in American politics, military and their military Industrialist kissing cousins and Government controlled American media parrots.
    Being honest is a trait that is almost extinct in Americans society, they are to shallow to have depth of character and ability to recognize just how Corrupt their political leaders are.
    The ,” What’s In It For Me, ” and “God Is On Our Side” care about ( identity politics as
    used by both party’s powers) as to nations good, nor how corrupt and psycho our personal friends and political low life forms are in all other aspects beyond what they give to “us.”
    I do not agree with all of Tulsi’s ideas but am strongly in of favor her stance on reducing and limiting US military involvement in multiple wars.
    What has surprised, well not realy, is that among active and retired military she is dispised, but then again they are of a group who if not in military would be hard pushed to find employment as lush as they now recieve.
    How many know retired and veteran programs for military now cost over 300 Billions,and growing, annualy.
    When making war elevates a portion of public, (military) living far better than 45% of workers in nation you cannot stop those in power , suit and ties, from making war.
    Syria may regain most of its lost property but the other just as.drstructive as bombs warfare will continue to plague them for generations yet to come.

    • RichardD

      Do you have links about her being despised by the military? Her anti gun pro abortion stance probably isn’t helping her with a lot of people.

    • Lonesome Cowboy Burt

      True except she is the female, white Obama. Her being a member of the CFR is worrying and other issues such as her stance on the 2A.

      • Tommy Jensen

        She is too good to be true.
        Isnt it strange that she is the one and only in all the Democrat slime?
        If all the other candidates are media made actors selected by TPTB, Cortez, Hillary, Obama, Harris, Sanders, m.m. Tulsi could be the TPTB made exception a la “honest Trump”.
        They have to be financed by the same dark force.

    • frankly

      Ex military and despise Clinton just for saying such absurd things about her insecure server. We heard repeatedly that “ignorance is no excuse” when it came to making security mistakes. Well that certainly did not apply to her.

      The brain washing goes deep, if others despise Tulsi it’s probably because she is a woman and if those same love Clinton it’s because she is more of an alien than a woman, psychopathic as a minimum.

  • frankly

    Fascinating how the US military officers training regime could produce a Russian Asset. This hypocrisy is legend. Oh support our troops until they talk sense then under the bus. I am so sick of Clinton this and Clinton that. She could not even win the state Bill was governor of for 12 years. Tulsi is the real deal. This makes it plain for all to see.

    • Selbstdenker

      Because people there knew what bitch she is. They made the first misstake havin Bill at the helm.

      This is very bad taste.
      Appears you are actually upset about US leaving N Syria ?

      • RichardD

        Read Kathy O’Brien’s book. It looks like aspects of Hillary’s life are in bad taste.

      • Ross

        Is ‘Paveway IV’ (a long established and well-informed erudite poster) the same as ‘Pave Way IV’? I suspect not.

        • PZIVJ

          OMG, I think you are right !

          • Pave Way IV

            Medication? Not yet, but the 2020 US elections are sneaking up. If you have any suggestions for painkillers or tranquilizers…

        • Pave Way IV

          Yes. I recall Disqus demanding a first and last name for registration and it wouldn’t let me use “Paveway” and “IV” for some reason.

      • Pave Way IV

        Bad taste? Really? That’s Hillary Clinton – the embodiment of psychopathic, homicidal, privileged political elite in the US. Ask the Libyans or Syrians (among many other victims) if it’s fair to sarcastically characterize her as eating a live baby? See, I’m responsible for all the people she helped kill and all the countries she helped destroy. If anything, the picture does not go far enough to depict her special kind of evil. Besides, she seems to like her babies barbequed.

        Now she attacks a potential political rival by accusing them of being an agent of a foreign government? What part of her being a political agent of Israel am I supposed to ignore here? Not only that, but Gabbard an agent of Russia? FFS, Russia couldn’t take over the world if it wanted to – it’s too busy cleaning up the chaos and death we (the US) keep creating.

        And I can’t have any opinion on the US leaving Syria because we have not. When I hear Conoco Gas Plant and the Omar Oilfields are under Syrian control, and the SAA controls the border from Faysh Khabur to At Tanf, then I’ll consider us officially gone.

    • RichardD

      If there’s any truth to the stories from people like Kathy O’Brien who had her case closed for “national security” reasons. Your post may not be that far from the truth.

  • RichardD

    Maybe I’m ahead of my time. But I have to question how relevant the msm still is. Sure, they have a monopoly on the boob/Jew tube. But with the internet growing exponentially and the TV stagnate in terms of hours viewed per person.

    The lock that the msm had on information is long gone. And people worldwide are increasingly shifting to the internet as their main information source. Where the msm is only a small fraction of the total information available.

    So the contrived Russian boogeyman spiel and the morons peddling it looking increasingly foolish as they double down on this nonsense.

  • Tommy Jensen

    Well, at least its correct that Putin has been grooming Tulsi with his hands. We don’t know whether he also was grabbing pussy but we can imagine what Putin would do if he already had his hands on Tulsis body.

    Putin is a macho and a typical brutal and suppressing KGB man of the old school with wife in the kitchen and slamming his children with unreasonable school lessons in math every day.

    Not only did Putin destroy America with his interfering in the American election and the Simpleton he elected as Americas President, Putin is now going to destroy all womens freedom and Americas reputation all over the world with his obsolete, old fashioned and amateurish and aggressive world view.

    If you wanna save America from Simpletons, vote for a liberal green gay (D).

    • Xoli Xoli

      Sorry but with due respect what did pussy and lies did to you USA and British. Talk about your corrupt leaders stop shifting blame on others and pussy who broad all mankind in this world.
      Please stop behaving as of your mother and sister doesn’t have pussy respect mothers and sisters.

  • Ross

    It has been clear to me (and many others) for a while now that the 200 year old left v right dialectic no longer applies to the current political reality. Globalism v nationalism better describes the battle lines prevalent today. We see it in Syria, in Putin, in Brexit, – right across the spectrum. It seems to me that Tulsi Gabbard would make an excellent Secretary of State in a Trump administration.

  • RichardD

    Gabbard’s platform is almost identical to all of the rest of the Dems on the wars and everything else. She’s just more vocal in her antiwar stance. So was Trump. A lot of the Dems are bait and switch liars who would do the same thing that Trump did. Probably a lot more willingly.

  • Xoli Xoli

    The tweet against Hillary Clinton is straight, true ,obvious and profound. Excellent quote.The old cockroach with brown cockroach brief case of lies and deceit was hiding behind a curtain.

    I hope she gets mama shakers Merkel injection.

  • hvaiallverden

    Yeah, Tulsi, well, one thing we must NOT forget, she is an ameriCunt, the rest is debatable, and I dont trust any ameriCunt for an split second, when Trump won because of people in general knew that the path forward, had to change, when the entire nation is grippen by their balls by the MIC, and ISISrael whom runs the foreign poliTicks what could possibly go wrong, huh and nothing happened.
    This is an faux debate, irrelevant as f….. but souths the MSM agenda to make even more wars and economic scams, the funny thing is, if it can be funny, is that non of this is debating the real issue, the economic downfal of an empire, in days where not only sactions are biting, but the empire have nothing left to sell, apart from an massive stone age weapon ind, they have nothing, my next phone will be Huawei, you can bet in it, I will personally boycot them for the rest of my life, buy nothing from then, and for the Chines Huawei, this, attacks, should be considered as an gift from heaven, because finaly, the diversity some of us have talked about didnt come thru evolving, but by brute force, and I dont care as long we can hurt the Imperial banana republics Corps, like Goolag etc to Amazon, soon enough there will be just few large corps left, and the final victory of Wall street over Main street is been cemented as we speak, Trumpstein is just drooling and is inbedded with the scums of this earth and have done nada, nothing, other than been a part of the shit throwing freak show.
    Watch the Banking sectore, its burning as we speak, its they whom is creating much of our present problems, from South America/Africa etc to the invasion of so called refugees.

    Hitlary is of course insane, but so are most of the cabinet of Trumps, raving evil scums, and swamp creatures crawling all over the WH havent changed anything, and the foreign policy witch is bassically about plunder recourses and slaughtering people for the terror state ISISrael.
    And whines about Islamic fundamentalists while they suck up to the Wahabi Kingdom Saudi-barbaria.

    The second grand ilution is the even more fake Left v Right, when Rights have whined about refugees witch they whined about where to few 30 years ago, and they where in the forefront of inviting ever more to undermine nations workers rights and make salarys plunge, and then it created an housing crisis, etc to where we are now, the Left used Only an rethrical trick to be an sort of opostitoin when the effect where the same, workers unions where highjacked by comunists, 30 years ago an have died slowly since, and then we have all the wars, Obamalama got the PissPrice for legitimizing the eh…. right to do something, they call it not wars, they call it interventions, to save democrasy and human right while they
    bombed nations back to stone age.
    And the fake Right in Norway is constantly whining about Islam, yeah, and when the MSM talks about so called nazis, and wants them banned, rightwingers whines about Antifas and drags Hamas into it as well, but never mentions Saudi-barbaria and what ISISrael is doing, because they are the last DemoCrautic land in the levante, and the left, have done nothing, talked, yeah, for decades, but nothing ever happens, they where extatic when their Lord Obamalama bombed dicks all over the void, and the difference where only in rethorics, the effect the same, and now they want a million Africans to come to out land.
    Etc.
    Etc.
    But this all, is only made possible thru the MSM, they control the narratives, can eradicate oposition, kick out/down people whom oposes the AGW, etc, to oposing wars.
    Their reason in Syria is because Assad was/is an Gasser, and that is why they want the Kurds to be heroes, they are fighting Syrian Gov along with the scam called ISIS, witch we all know is made possible by the AmeriCunts, back to the days of the Balkan war, where they furtelized the ground for an growing eh…..”islamic” force, and since then exported it to this countrys where the uh…. humanitarian interventions is playing, the west have bombed 7 different Muslim nations, creating problems in 17.

    I dont even bother to read the latest shit throwing nonsense, I dont care, sound hars, but the fact is, we are living in an time where an empire is starting to implode, what comes first, imposion or an all out war,WW3 have been in action since 9/11 2001, and is just halted, the next 2 years will be intresting, not the next two weeks, Trump will win, but that dont mean anything else unless something fundamental is done to the domestic Moronikans politics, and so far, nothing is done, other than an continuation of the take over by the CorpoRats and the NWO.
    Have an nice day.
    Cheers.

    peace

  • Garga

    Are you happy that she called her “queen of warmongers”? Then Gabbard must be the chosen one, right? She insulted Hillary after all and wants to stop wars. Where did I hear it before?

    I suppose they couldn’t pull each other’s hair (Garga, you misogynist pig!) at the Democratic cocktail parties or Sunday lunch? They had to do it before everybody’s eye, didn’t they?
    Trusting an American politician who is growing inside the system is a strange way to say you are tired of the same system. Gabbard might not cave in to MIC, but she definitely bends to the Zionist Jewish PACs and Israeli lobby.
    What’s the difference, like any other US elections, the choice would be the lesser of 2 evils yet again in 2020.

  • goingbrokes

    Good on Tulsi to call Clinton out. Yes, stop working from the shadows like the satanist that you are Hillary. But she won’t, she is a satanist coward and would be absolutely trashed if she tried to debate anything in the open. It would be so fun to watch Tulsi slap Hillary around in debates, but Clinton is fundamentally a weak-minded and cowardly person (not at all like Trump) who cannot stomach any challenges – that’s not the way she works – but that of course means she is the worst kind of material for the office of POTUS. From the point of view of the corrupted elites she would be perfect. They are like that, the more corrupt or morally weak you are the more they like you.

  • Bob

    Politics is a nasty business – and the Clinton’s are self serving carpet baggers writ large – but given that Gabbard actually served in the US military, for Clinton to smear her as a ‘Russian groomed asset’ is really crossing the line. The Neo-Cons and their political pets are in now open conflict with mainstream US public.
