US presidential candidate who in March 2020 suspended her campaign in favour of Joe Biden.
Tulsi Gabbard is a Democratic Congresswoman from Hawaii, who was running to be US President in 2020. On 19 March 2020 she announced that "I’m suspending my presidential campaign, and offering my full support to Vice President Joe Biden in his quest to bring our country together."
On Super Tuesday 3 March 2020, with Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar and former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg out of the Democratic presidential primary, only Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, businessman Michael Bloomberg, and Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard remain. Although Tulsi Gabbard does not appear to have any path to the nomination, she interestingly remains the only candidate left in the race who is a lifelong Democrat. Not only that, of the 2016 Democratic Party superdelegates in the race — Biden, Gabbard, and Warren — she is the only one who supported Sanders against Hillary Clinton in the last election’s primary.

Officially, Gabbard was born in American Samoa to Mike Gabbard, a Catholic Samoan-European, now a member of the Hawaii Senate, and Carol Porter Gabbard, a German-American born in Indiana. Porter had earlier converted to a sect of Hinduism – the Science of Identity Foundation, a Hawaii-based Hare Krishna offshoot led by a Hawaii-born college dropout named Chris Butler, also known as Siddhaswarupananda and Jagad Guru. Butler has been accused of leading a cult that emphasizes loyalty to Butler above all else, and Gabbard may be a product of the the CIA's MK Ultra-umbrella mind control efforts. Mike Gabbard,a Republican-turned-Democrat, founded the Stand Up For America (SUFA) organization after 9/11. SUFA helped propel the right-wing meme that there was a “war on Christmas” being waged by those who did not respect Christmas’s Christian origins. The "war on Christmas" rhetoric was adopted by Donald Trump, right-wing radio’s Rush Limbaugh]], and former Fox News hosts Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity.
Gabbard took her oath of office as a member of Congress on the Hindu religious text, the Bhagavad Gita, and she generally follows the Vaishnava-Hindu sect and its sub-school, Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the latter affiliated with the Science of Identity Foundation. In many ways, Gabbard follows in the tradition of Stanley Ann Dunham Obama Soetoro, who joined the Indonesian-based Subud movement founded by Muhammad Subuh Sumohadiwidjojo. Subud and the Society of Identity Foundation found an important base of operations in Hawaii. More importantly, these religious sects acted as fronts for intelligence agencies. For the Society of Identity Foundation, it is the Indian Research and Analysis Wing (RAW). For Subud, it was the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and the Indonesian Operational Command for the Restoration of Security and Order (KOPKAMTIB). Intelligence agencies have long relied on cults for field testing of psychological mass control techniques and political infiltration. Two examples of CIA-directed cults are the Peoples Temple of Jim Jones and the Chinese Falun Gong. The Unification Church of the late Reverend Sun Myung Moon also had significant links to the CIA and the Korean Central Intelligence Agency (KCIA).
Just as Israel’s Mossad influences the operations of Jewish cults abroad, including the Chabad Movement, India’s RAW, particularly under the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party of Modi, maintains close links with various Hindu extremist groups and overseas sects. These include the Hindu organization, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). RSS opponents accuse it of being the armed paramilitary wing of the BJP, much like the Irish Republican Army (IRA)is the armed component of the Sinn Fein nationalist party of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Just as the IRA has carried out assassinations of British politicians, the RSS has chalked up a number of assassinations, including that of Mahatma Gandhi in New Delhi in 1948.
As a member of the House Foreign Affairs and Armed Services Committees, Gabbard is strategically placed to influence U.S. policy vis a vis Pakistan and other nations where RAW is active, including Sri Lanka, the Maldives, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar and Afghanistan. Gabbard has accepted sizable donations from the Overseas Friends of the BJP, which acts in the same manner as the AIPAC with regard to Israel. Gabbard has opposed any House resolutions that call out Modi for acts of violence against Christians and Muslims, particularly anti-Muslim riots that took place in Gujarat in 2002 when Modi was the state’s chief minister.
Experience as a "Combat Vet"
Tulsi never saw combat other than observing the horrors of war from a safe distance. Therefore, her campaign appears to be exaggerating her war experience as a “combat vet”. As a daughter of Hawaii State Senator, Mike Gabbard, Tulsi was never in harm's way during her two Iraq War tours. She served as a field hospital administrator/desk job, pushing papers and trained military police. Gabbard never led a force into battle, took or exchanged fire. During the Obama admin. rules changed, so that military personal now receive Combat Medical Badge citation simply for being stationed in a war zone, that was formerly reserved for doctors and nurses serving in units under fire. According to some veterans, Gabbard doesn't possess proper Medical MOS credentials other than as an administrator ineligible for receiving the citation and didn't serve in a unit eligible for her award. (Read the comments at the bottom of referred page) National Guard and Army Reserve personnel traditionally serve in non-combat support roles.
Questions from fellow veterans regarding oddities in reasoning for Tulsi Gabbard’s military awards:
- How did a Second Lieutenant in the Hawaii National Guard, earn the prestigious Meritorious Service Medal, after serving just 12 months?
- Why was Gabbard awarded the Combat Medical Badge, normally offered to units under fire, without a medical degree, serving in a support administrative position, in unit ineligible to receive it?
- Why was she awarded the rank of Major after less than the 16 years of continuous service normally required and is political favoritism being applied in the award of her rank and citations?

Appearances on Fox News, David Duke, Richard Spencer, Steve Bannon Endorsements
Per the Nexis database, Tulsi Gabbard made 20 appearances on Fox News while President Obama was in office.. This doesn't include instances when she was mentioned on Fox or featured in video clips played on air. Suggesting that David Duke, Richard Spencer, or Steve Bannon however are endorsing Tulsi, will have practically zero effect on conservative Trump supporters, who don't identify with these individuals. Many Democrats ignorantly assume all Trump supporters are rednecks and racists, who exclusively watch Fox News as their sole news source, shop at Walmart, and drive a pickup with a gun rack, as Tulsi's possible choice for choosing Fox. Democrats and the Liberal media, forced the KKK/Alt-Right label on Trump and his supporters, and now on Tulsi Gabbard too, for associating with Fox, whether it has any basis in truth or fiction, other than they're insisting it does. If Tulsi is trying to attract conservative voters and Trump supporters to her campaign, picking up endorsements from former KKK member David Duke, Alt-Right spokesman Richard Spencer, or activist Steve Bannon, is practically meaningless for conservatives if they don't identify with them. Most Trump supporters have come to realize that Fox News is controlled opposition, an anti-Trump organization, backstabbing the President every chance they get. They largely reject Fox News as fake. Fox News promoting Tulsi Gabbard isn’t going to attract Trump supporters to Tulsi. Tulsi serves Democrat Party agenda. She’s likely appealing to Trump supporters as a source for campaign financing, but won’t fulfill any of her conservative campaign promises, since she’s running as a Democrat.
Flip-flop on Trump's Impeachment Inquiry
Gabbard made frequent appearances on Fox News and in corporate media, in September 2019, claiming that she wouldn't support voting for Trump's Impeachment Inquiry, because it would be "terribly divisive" to the nation. Then, on September 27, she flip-flopped and backed the Impeachment Inquiry, stating there were new revelations about a "whistleblower", causing her to reverse her position. Later the name of the so-called whistleblower was leaked, who turned out to be Eric Ciaramella, a pro-Clinton, CIA operative, and not a genuine whistleblower. At the 4th Democrat Debate, Oct 15, 2019, Gabbard reiterated her support for Trump's Impeachment Inquiry. On Oct 31st, 2019, Gabbard voted alongside her fellow Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives for Trump's Impeachment Inquiry. Niko House, big Tulsi Gabbard supporter, stated on Sputnik's Fault Lines Radio show in Washington DC, on November 4, 2019, that Tulsi "just wants to put her Trump Impeachment Inquiry vote behind her now and move on to more important issues", along with assuring her conservative supporters that the hearings would be "transparent and open to the public", in the hopes that they will just forget all about her decision to reverse her position to vote with the Democrat Party to impeach President Trump.  (Interview starts at 69.50 and ends at 83 minutes). However, the Impeachment Inquiry hearings haven't been transparent or completely open to the public as Tulsi Gabbard claimed, meeting behind closed doors and blocking Republican ability to completely question all witnesses.
Indian newspapers have called Gabbard the Sangh Parivar’s “American mascot.” The Sangh Parivar envision a Hindu theocratic state on the subcontinent, where Muslims, Christians, and others would be relegated to second-class citizens. Gabbard has spoken at events sponsored by a Sangh Parivar affiliate, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad of America. The Vishwa Hindu Parishad of India has been declared a “militant religious organization” by the CIA. Hawaii Democratic Party activists have accused Gabbard of kowtowing more to the interests of Indian-Americans and Hindu-Americans, particularly the Hindu-American Foundation (HAF) — which is headquartered in Capitol Hill in Washington and acts as a Hindu version of AIPAC and the Muslim Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) — than in caring about the problems particular to Hawaii.
"Al Qaeda Is Stronger Now Than They Were on 9/11"
On 11 September 2019 she claimed that "Al Qaeda Is Stronger Now Than They Were on 9/11". Tulsi repeats the commonly accepted official narrative – “9/11 was caused by Al Qaeda hijackers”, adding her new secret revelation of Saudi Arabia's involvement as the masterminds who planned it all, and should be held accountable, compensating the victims. Tulsi conveniently leaves out suspected Mossad and CIA involvement in 9/11; 'Jesus' on Saidit observed that she "fails the 9/11 litmus test."
Gabbard pretends Trump’s a willing servant of the Saudis, but never acknowledging who ordered him to do it, and who the Saudis are serving as well. By demonizing the Saudis, she indirectly attacks Trump as under he control of Saudi Arabia. Why doesn’t Tulsi name the complete Middle East cabal, including Israel, Mossad, CIA, NATO allies, along with Saudi Arabia, and by who’s authority they all ultimately serve? What if the truth is President Trump is Lord Rothschild’s bitch, but so are the Saudis, Israel, CIA, NATO, Mossad and all the others? Why doesn’t Tulsi reveal the complete truth of your situation? Why doesn’t conservative media, including Fox's Tucker Carlson, call her out for it? If this doesn’t fit the definition of a limited hangout, then what is it? The way to understand Tulsi however, is to understand she's a politician of contradictions, who regularly flip-flops her position. She demands compensation for 9/11 victims from Saudi Arabia, to embarrass President Trump, but doesn't bother showing up to vote for a bill to actually compensate 9/11 Victims? Tulsi Gabbard is one of the just NINE Democrats in the House to miss the vote on HR 1327 “Never Forget the Heroes” Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act. 
Although Tulsi Gabbard claims she's opposed to third-trimester abortion, her actual Congressional abortion voting records tell a different story. Tulsi Gabbard claims she “personally” doesn’t support abortion, and now late-term abortion. However, she goes on to say a woman has the right to choose, and no government may stop them. Then as a U.S. House Representative of Congress, she’s passed many abortion laws, blocked laws designed to protect children,, including pain capable and born alive initiatives, hasn’t overturned any of her existing laws in spite of her claimed lack of support for them, and year-after-year funded Planned Parenthood, providing facilities and doctors to mass murder babies. However, Tulsi appears to be lying to fool voters and uniformed religionists who blindly support her campaign, believing she doesn’t support abortion, without investigating to see if it's actually true? What’s significant here is that Tulsi Gabbard is a lawmaker, and not just an individual with a personal opinion. What she's attempting to do here is simply say she doesn't support something she's already passed laws to execute, and has no intention to ever overturn, in a likely attempt to attract campaign financing from uninformed voters. Tulsi Gabbard passed the laws ordering the execution of hundreds of thousands of American babies, while promising to "protect all Americans from harm". Many shameless ISKCON/Hare Krishna leaders and members are currently promoting her to their congregation and to the public as a lifelong Vaishnava saint and avatar, despite their scriptures and teachings being decidedly pro-life and in opposition to Tulsi Gabbard's actions. After fooling the Hare Krishna religion and the Indian community that supports them, she's now moved on to the Catholic Church, whose congregation is being told Tulsi Gabbard supports a ban on late-term abortion as well. Careful tracking of Tulsi's campaign however, shows one set of messages delivered to conservative voters and different messages for her Democrat Party constituents, which is consistent with the Democrat Party platform on this issue. In the first Democrat Party debate, Tulsi admitted that she's pro-choice and supports abortion.
Tulsi Gabbard, Democratic Party contender in the 2020 presidential race, tells Donald Trump to make it clear to NATO and to Turkish President Erdogan that the United States will not be dragged into a war with Russia by the aggressive, Islamist, expansionist dictator of Turkey:
- "The corporate media needs to stop referring to Al-Qaeda and their affiliated groups in Syria's Idlib Province as ‘rebels’ in a deceptive effort to make them seem like freedom fighters.
- "The media and the Trump administration’s continued labelling of these terrorists as ‘rebels’ is a disgrace and dishonour for all our men and women in uniform and our entire country."
Tulsi Gabbard held a 5-year Term membership, with the Council on Foreign Relations, which expired on July 1, 2019. In an interview with big Tulsi advocate, Niko House, in March 2019, Tulsi answers questions regarding her membership with the CFR, that went viral on social media[When?], without ever touching on the traditional role of the Council in selecting each elected President’s Cabinet, including heads of National Security, CIA Director, Department of Defense heads, Justice, and Treasury Secretary, key Ambassador positions, and some Supreme Court appointments, from its own members. Tulsi’s campaign message is based on the pretence that the US President dictates to the CFR, America's foreign policy, and that therefore Gabbard will end Middle East and regime change wars, based on Presidential/Constitutionally elected authority alone, without letting on that the opposite appears likely true – that the President is a figurehead, who executes the orders of the CFR and other shadow secret societies such as Bilderberg and the Trilateral Commission. Tulsi’s main support comes from uninformed and easily deceived Progressive Democrats, whose source of info on the CFR is generally limited to what they read on Wikipedia and other commercially-controlled media. Their sources describe the Council as a benign advisory think tank that compliments the elected President’s foreign policies.
Tulsi Gabbard’s anti-interventionist foreign policy initiatives appear aligned with the Washington DC based think tank – The Quincy Institute, funded with seed money from George Soros and Charles Koch.
