    Joe Rogan interviews Tulsi Gabbard

    The Constitution gives Congress the exclusive responsibility to declare war.
    The last time it did? 1941.
    Ever since, Congress has ceded this power to the President and it has cost us dearly.

    Didn't she vote for more sanctions on Russia and Syria?

    Here's her record. Voted yes on limiting government ability to read private citizens' communications; yes on allowing terminally ill patients to try unapproved treatments; yes on sanctions against North Korea, Iran, and Russia; yes on eliminating the medical device tax; voted no on warrantless wiretapping; no on funding during the government shutdown; no on rescinding banking regulations.

    I listened to the entire ~2hr video. I don't usually listen to any Youtube more than a couple minutes long. She seems reasoned, reasonable and genuine. That alone puts her in rare company in D.C. I may not agree with her conclusions on every issue, but from what I have seen, she at least takes ownership of her decisions/responsibility so they are considered - not just paid for.
    I compiled a "brief" history of events since October 2008 that are defining the global currency war and the role that gold is playing:

    Tin Foil Hats, Economic Reality and the Total Perspective Vortex

    Also, have you contacted your Congressional Rep and asked them co-sponsor Ron Paul's Rep. Paul Broun Jr.'s HR 1098 77: Free Competition in Currencies Act?

    She's not perfect but she is making the end of these damn wars a priority and right now that's pretty important unless you don't care whether the US makes it into the next decade without fully becoming a 3rd world nation (unlikely at this point)

    If the Democrats were smart they would run this person in 2020

    But not only are they not smart, they are old, stale, corrupt, disgusting, despicable idiots. Most of the old guard Democrats hate this person with a passion. Which makes me like her even more.

    I like her...
    ...but I have learned never to trust those in the opposition party.

    Would she be talking this way, if Hillary won?*

    She uses the term "world's policemen"

    I read that a lot, in the papers, when Bill Clinton was president, and Republicans were saying "we can't be the world's policeman", just a couple of years after Gulf War 1 under daddy Bush. So, I find it interesting she uses that phrase. She must know the history of Republican hypocrisy.



    *Notice I did not say, "When democrats get back in power".

    If the GOP plays its card right, Democrats are toast... ..forever.
    The GOP must NOT overplay its hand.
    All it's evil intentions can be carried out in 2028 or 2032.
    But it must play good guy for a while, and play deal maker.

    It is quite amazing to watch the Republicans, under Trump, starting to learn how to defeat an enemy.
    The justice is so poetic too. The enemy can stop defeating itself, by calming down, and acting rational.
    But they are so doped up on opiods and amphetamines, SSRI and.... literally amphetamines, they have lost all touch with reality.

    They won't be undead. They won't be covered in sores, but they will be zombies.
    Zombies are stupid, and have no chance, unless they have overwhelming numbers.
    Even by realpolitik's measure known as the popular vote, the numbers are far from overwhelming.

    Quite clearly, the predators will destroy their prey.
    It's going to be bloody, but it's not even going to be close.
    I predicted Trump's win and a mass suicide wave afterward.

    The suicide wave never came, and I was perplexed.
    Just let them lose a couple more times.

    The only chance the Democratic party has, is to come to terms with it's radical elite tv watching wing, aka the liberal white woman.
    It's not going to do that, because it is a party based on henpecking (which is incredibly effective, ask India's caste system).
    But, it's women, those of the Democratic party, continue to destroy themselves, by intentionally making themselves uglier, more manly, and dirtier.
    So while the caste system in India is essentially a socially constructed matriarchy, where love and family play a high role than money and politics (This not a judgement, it is observation. But observe, if you may, the feeling you got, when you read "love and family" over "money and politics". Both are real. One seems to have a "moral superiority", even though all four are powerful realities! ), it does so with a system where women try to maximize their beauty, as every person will maximize whatever they can to survive... ..women's natural instinct is to maximize their beauty. It works in India, would not work in the United States, unless women continued to maximize their beauty, therefore, their power. Liberal women are largely choosing to minimize or even fight their beauty, and then find themselves powerless, except in a sisterhood that secretly plots to over throw them.)

    So, the white liberal woman is the coming demise of Democratic party.
    It is hilarious, because she has destroyed her own beauty, in some kind of virtuous signal to her sisters.

    ...wow this is a tangent, what dopes it have to do with the OP?


    Oh yeah, Tulsi Gabbards is hot. Nikki Haley is not.

    Never take advice from an enemy. Thought you had learned, by now. Yeah... you... the one being paid to read this.

    I had the same reaction. And I love the fact that she's actually served her country.

    Because progressives worship the state, they may vote with us on specific issues once in awhile if we are lucky but they will always oppose reducing government.

    Tulsi voluntarily returned 5% of her salary during the sequestration, and opposes the Military Industrial Complex's "regime change" agenda. She voted against the NDAA and the military spending increases. Things are not as black and white as you assert.

    Thanks for the resource, Swordsmyth. Clicking on the link reveals that she's listed as having 33 "good votes" (within the site's "freedom index"), which is not quite the same as "always opposing reducing government". And they gave McCain a 92% free in the 111th Congress, which tells you their scoring is somehow very $#@!ed up. That's higher than Ron Paul in the 107th Congress (90%).

    McCain. 92% constitutional. Please. (He was my Senator, BTW.)

    By weighing every congressional vote equally, and not counting non-votes (such as when McCain didn't oppose funding ACORN using HUD funds), the site gives percentages that don't seem very accurate. Not saying it can't be a valuable tool, but it definitely requires a closer look at the stats it presents.

    Anybody who is making negative comments without watching the video, I urge you to watch the video and count how many what you would agree are really important issues that she talks about and count how many times she talks about socialism and get back to me.

    If you listen closely, you will even hear her advocate a reduction in social welfare spending

    If all Democrats were replaced with people like her, our country would be a million times better.

    That McCain % in one year is a definite anomaly and no system is perfect but Gabbard is no friend of liberty, when I say "always oppose reducing government" I don't mean each and every vote, that would contradict the rest of what I said about them sometimes voting with us, I mean that their end goal is to increase government not to reduce it, if asked if they wanted smaller government they would never say yes.

    She is better than every other Democrat and a lot of Republicans if you are just looking at things from a % vote perspective, but more importantly, she doesn't buy the propaganda on foreign policy. She is the only Democrat who is outspoken against the wars and the war propaganda and the pro-Hillary propaganda from the Democratic party. She also doesn't have the Trump/Russia DS.

    I am completely serious when I say our country would be a million times better if you replaced every Democrat with someone like her.

    Some examples:



    H R 3: Appropriations Cuts
    Vote Date: June 7, 2018 Vote: NAY Bad Vote.
    This bill (H.R. 3) would cut nearly $15 billion from previously approved, unspent spending, including $7 billion from the Children’s Health Insurance Program and $4.3 billion from the Department of Energy’s Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Loan Program.

    The House passed H.R. 3 on June 7, 2018 by a vote of 210 to 206 (Roll Call 243). We have assigned pluses to the yeas not only because the spending falls outside the scope of constitutionally authorized federal powers, but also because the federal government needs to start reining in ballooning federal spending (and debt) somewhere in order to avert fiscal disaster. The cuts in this bill comprise only a fraction of one percent of total federal spending, and according to the Congressional Budget Office, most of the funding targeted by the bill would not be spent anyway. Yet modest cuts are better than none at all.


    H R 2: Waters of the United States
    Vote Date: May 18, 2018 Vote: NAY Bad Vote.
    During consideration of the farm bill (H.R. 2), Representative Jim Banks (RInd.) introduced an amendment to repeal the Environmental Protection Agency’s 2015 “Waters of the United States” rule. On the floor of the House, Banks called this rule “the poster child of government overreach during the Obama administration,” noting that it gives “unelected bureaucrats at the EPA the power to broadly interpret what is a navigable waterway” under the Clean Water Act — so broadly that “even a puddle in a farm’s drainage ditch could be subjected to Federal regulation.”

    The House adopted Banks’ amendment on May 18, 2018 by a vote of 238 to 173 (Roll Call 203). We have assigned pluses to the yeas because both federal water regulations and the EPA are unconstitutional, and if the rule were allowed to stand, activities such as farming and real estate development would be greatly hampered, since farmers and developers would be subject to increased unconstitutional permit requirements and fines concerning their treatment of almost any body of water, no matter how small.


    H R 2: Agricultural Crop Subsidies
    Vote Date: May 17, 2018 Vote: NAY Bad Vote.
    During consideration of the farm bill (H.R. 2), Representative Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) introduced an amendment that would have phased out agricultural crop subsidies by fiscal year 2030.

    The House rejected McClintock’s amendment on May 17, 2018 by a vote of 34 to 380 (Roll Call 194). We have assigned pluses to the yeas because no warrant for the appropriation of crop subsidies is found in the Constitution, and subsidies disrupt the free market economy.


    H R 3354: Fracking
    Vote Date: September 8, 2017 Vote: AYE Bad Vote.
    During consideration of the omnibus appropriations bill (H.R. 3354), Representative Salud Carbajal (D-Calif.) introduced an amendment to prohibit funds to process any application for a drilling permit that would authorize use of hydraulic fracturing or acid well stimulation treatment in the Pacific outer continental shelf.

    The House rejected Carbajal’s amendment on September 8, 2017 by a vote of 177 to 230 (Roll Call 483). We have assigned pluses to the nays because the federal government should not interfere with energy exploration. Regulation of various industries, such as energy, is not one of the federal government’s enumerated powers under the Constitution. Allowing the United States to fully utilize its energy resources would make the country more self-sufficient and create, potentially, millions of jobs.


    H R 3354: UN Human Rights Agencies
    Vote Date: September 7, 2017 Vote: NAY Bad Vote.
    During consideration of the omnibus appropriations bill (H.R. 3354), Representative Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) introduced an amendment to prohibit the use of funds for making contributions to various United Nations human rights agencies, including the United Nations Human Rights Council, the United Nations Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency.

    The House rejected Yoho’s amendment on September 7, 2017 by a vote of 199 to 212 (Roll Call 470). We have assigned pluses to the yeas because taxpayer money should not go to fund any agencies of the United Nations, especially those led by communist, Marxist, or radical Islamic regimes, which are some of the world’s biggest offenders of human rights.


    H R 806: Ozone Standards
    Vote Date: July 18, 2017 Vote: NAY Bad Vote.
    The Ozone Standards Implementation Act (H.R. 806) would delay by eight years the implementation of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) new National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), issued on October 26, 2015. The EPA’s new NAAQS for ground-level ozone levels went from 75 parts per billion (PPB) to 70 PPB.

    Upon its passage in the House, the bill’s main sponsor, Congressman Pete Olson (R-Texas), said in a statement, “My bill provides needed flexibility so that states and localities can adequately achieve new, lower standards with time for compliance. Health remains the first priority in setting standards and giving our local officials the tools they need make the Clean Air Act work.” The Clean Air Act authorizes the EPA to set criteria pollution standards for ground level ozone.

    The House passed H.R. 806 on July 18, 2017 by a vote of 229 to 199 (Roll Call 391). We have assigned pluses to the yeas because it provides temporary relief from having to immediately implement the new ozone reduction standards. Ideally, the EPA should be abolished and the Clean Air Act repealed, since both are unconstitutional infringements on state responsibilities.


    H RES 397: NATO
    Vote Date: June 27, 2017 Vote: AYE Bad Vote.
    This legislation (H. Res. 397) “solemnly reaffirms the commitment of the United States to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s principle of collective defense as enumerated in Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty.” Under Article 5, the member nations of the NATO military alliance “agree that an armed attack against one or more of them ... shall be considered an attack against them all.”

    The House passed H. Res. 397 on June 27, 2017 by a lopsided vote of 423 to 4 (Roll Call 328). We have assigned pluses to the nays not only because the United States should stay clear of entangling alliances such as NATO, but also because the NATO provision that obligates the United States to go to war if any member of NATO is attacked undermines the provision in the U.S. Constitution that assigns to Congress the power to declare war. Moreover, the number of nations that the United States has pledged to defend under NATO has grown from 11 to 28 over the years, as the alliance itself has grown from 12 member nations (including the United States) when NATO was created in 1949 to 29 today. Although NATO was ostensibly formed to counter the threat from the Soviet bloc of nations, some of the nations the United States is now pledged to defend under NATO were once part of that bloc, including Albania, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic (as part of Czechoslovakia), Hungary, Poland, and Romania.


    H R 10: Dodd-Frank Financial Regulations
    Vote Date: June 8, 2017 Vote: NAY Bad Vote.
    This bill (H.R. 10) would overhaul financial industry regulations and repeal many provisions of the 2010 Dodd-Frank law. Additionally, the bill would change the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau into an executive-branch agency funded by annual appropriations.

    The House passed H.R. 10 on June 8, 2017 by a vote of 233 to 186 (Roll Call 299). We have assigned pluses to the yeas because regulation of the financial industry is not a responsibility, nor one of the enumerated powers, of the federal government. While allegedly put in place to protect consumers from irresponsible Wall Street tycoons and prevent a repeat of the 2008 financial crisis, Dodd-Frank has, in reality, negatively affected small community banks and credit unions with its heavy regulatory burden. While this bill does not represent a complete exit of the federal government from the financial industry, it is a step in the right direction.


    H J RES 69: Predator Control
    Vote Date: February 16, 2017 Vote: NAY Bad Vote.
    This legislation (House Joint Resolution 69) would disapprove of and nullify a U.S. Department of Interior rule, "Non-Subsistence Take of Wildlife, and Public Participating and Close Procedures, on National Wildlife Refuges in Alaska," which was released in final form on August 5, 2016. According to the bill's sponsor, Don Young (R-Alaska): "Not only does this [rule] undermine Alaska's authority to manage fish and wildlife upon refuge lands, it fundamentally destroys a cooperative relationship between Alaska and the federal government. I continue to fight to protect Alaska's sovereignty and management authority and will use every tool at my discretion to strike this rule."

    The House passed H. J. Res. 69 on February 16, 2017 by a vote of 225 to 193 (Roll Call 98). We have assigned pluses to the yeas because it reaffirms Alaska's sovereign power to manage its wildlife. Since the power of wildlife management was not granted to the federal government by the Constitution, it is reserved to Alaska and the other 49 states according to the 10th Amendment.


    H J RES 38: Stream Protection Rule
    Vote Date: February 1, 2017 Vote: NAY Bad Vote.
    This legislation (House Joint Resolution 38) would disapprove of and nullify the "Stream Protection Rule" issued by the Department of the Interior's Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement in 2016. This new rule would "jeopardize thousands of coal and coal-related jobs, devastate coal producing communities, and put a majority of the country's coal reserves off limits," according to the bill's lead sponsor, Representative Bill Johnson (R-Ohio).

    The House passed H. J. Res. 38 on February 1, 2017 by a vote of 228 to 194 (Roll Call 73). We have assigned pluses to the yeas not only because the federal government has no constitutional authority to issue environmental regulations, but also because environmental regulations such as the "Stream Protection Rule" destroy jobs and increase energy costs. Also, states already protect streamwater.


    H R 26: Major Regulations
    Vote Date: January 5, 2017 Vote: NAY Bad Vote.
    Under the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act (H.R. 26), regulations would require congressional approval before any "major rule" issued by an executive branch agency could go into effect. "Major rules" would include any regulation that would have an annual economic impact of $100 million or more. The intent of the legislation is to rein in the executive branch from usurping legislative powers.

    The House passed H.R. 26 on January 5, 2017 by a vote of 237 to 187 (Roll Call 23). We have assigned pluses to the yeas not simply because of the economic impact of the "major rules," but also because all legislative powers in the Constitution are vested in Congress, not the executive branch. Mandatory rules issued by the executive branch might not be called laws, but they have the same effect as laws, and what they are called does not change the reality.


    H R 5538: Power Plant Emissions
    Vote Date: July 12, 2016 Vote: AYE Bad Vote.
    During consideration of the Interior and Environment Appropriations bill (H.R. 5538), Representative Scott Peters (D-Calif.), on behalf of Representative Frank Pallone (D-N.J.), introduced an amendment that would remove provisions in the bill that would prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency from limiting the greenhouse gas emissions of new and existing power plants.

    The House rejected Peters’ amendment on July 12, 2016 by a vote of 182 to 244 (Roll Call 431). We have assigned pluses to the nays because the federal government has no constitutional authority to be making environmental regulations. Such regulations on power plants will likely do nothing to actually help the environment, but will hurt consumers via higher prices and will almost certainly cause job losses in the energy sector. The EPA is an unconstitutional federal agency created by executive order, and Congress really ought to abolish it. Any action to limit the EPA’s power is a good thing.


    H R 5293: Green-energy Mandates
    Vote Date: June 16, 2016 Vote: NAY Bad Vote.
    During consideration of the Defense Appropriations bill (H.R. 5293), Representative Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) introduced an amendment to bar the use of funds in the bill to carry out certain green-energy mandates that, McClintock said on the House floor, have forced the military “to squander billions of dollars.” Citing examples, McClintock noted: “These mandates have cost the Navy as much as $150 per gallon for jet fuel.... [They] forced the Air Force to pay $59 per gallon for 11,000 gallons of biofuel in 2012 — 10 times more than regular jet fuel cost.” Also, “At Naval Station Norfolk, the Navy spent $21 million to install a 10-acre solar array, which will supply a grand total of 2 percent of the base’s electricity … [and] pay for itself in only 447 years. Too bad solar panels only last 25 years.”

    The House passed McClintock’s amendment on June 16, 2016 by a vote of 221 to 197 (Roll Call 322). We have assigned pluses to the yeas because the so-called green-energy mandates squander military resources and undermine the purpose of having a military, which is to defend the United States and win our wars.


    H R 5293: Authorization for Use of Military Force
    Vote Date: June 16, 2016 Vote: NAY Bad Vote.
    During consideration of the Defense Appropriations bill (H.R. 5293), Representative Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) introduced an amendment to prohibit the use of funds in the bill for the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force Act. Enacted in the wake of 9/11, the AUMF authorized the president to “use all necessary and appropriate force” against the terrorists involved, as well as those who aided or harbored them. It was used as the authorization for U.S. military entry into Afghanistan in 2001, and over the years has also been invoked on other occasions by the executive branch to justify U.S. military intervention abroad.

    The House rejected Lee’s amendment on June 16, 2016 by a vote of 146 to 274 (Roll Call 330). We have assigned pluses to the yeas because presidents have been able to claim broad authority to go to war whenever or wherever they choose under the AUMF, despite the fact that the Founding Fathers never intended for one man to make this decision, and under the Constitution only Congress may “declare war.”



    H R 5471: Countering Terrorist Radicalization Act
    Vote Date: June 16, 2016 Vote: AYE Bad Vote.
    This bill (H.R. 5471) would authorize the Homeland Security Department to train state and local law enforcement in methods for countering violent extremism and terrorism. This training would take place at fusion centers that have been established across the nation by the Homeland Security Department and the U.S. Department of Justice for promoting information sharing between agencies such as the CIA, FBI, U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. military, and state- and local-level governments. It also would require the department to incorporate testimonials of former extremists and their friends and families into its efforts to combat terrorist recruitment and communications.

    The House passed H.R. 5471 on June 16 , 2016 by a vote of 402 to 15 (Roll Call 333). We have assigned pluses to the nays because providing federal training to state and local law-enforcement programs is not only unconstitutional, but also further federalizes the police system.

    H R 4909: Use of Military Force
    Vote Date: May 18, 2016 Vote: NAY Bad Vote.
    During consideration of the National Defense Authorization Act (H.R. 4909), Representative Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) introduced an amendment to repeal the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) that was enacted in 2001 for the purpose of authorizing U.S. military intervention in Afghanistan in the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks. Since then, however, the AUMF has been invoked numerous times by the executive branch for U.S. military intervention not only in Afghanistan but elsewhere.

    The House rejected Lee’s amendment on May 18, 2016 by a vote of 138 to 285 (Roll Call 210). We have assigned pluses to the yeas because presidents have been able to claim broad authority to go to war whenever or wherever they choose under the AUMF, despite the fact that the Founding Fathers never intended for one man to make this decision, and under the Constitution only Congress may “declare war.”

    H RES 162: Calling on the President to provide Ukraine with military assistance to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity.
    Vote Date: March 23, 2015 Vote: AYE Bad Vote.
    Ukraine Military Aid.
    House Resolution 162, which calls on the president "to provide Ukraine with military assistance to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity," allows President Obama to provide Ukraine with defensive weapons to defend against aggression from Russia.

    The House adopted H. Res. 162 on March 23, 2015 by a vote of 348 to 48 (Roll Call 131). We have assigned pluses to the nays not only because foreign aid is unconstitutional but also because this bill would further interject the United States into a foreign conflict. Allowing the U.S. president to provide lethal arms to Ukraine in order to fight Russia is tantamount to waging a proxy war on Russia without the constitutionally required congressional declaration of war. The House, by giving such power to the president, is relinquishing one of its constitutional responsibilities.

    H R 4870: On Agreeing to the Amendment 51 to H R 4870
    Vote Date: June 19, 2014 Vote: NAY Bad Vote.
    Weapons to Syrian Rebels.
    During consideration of the Defense Appropriations bill, Representative Jeff Fortenberry (R-Neb.) introduced an amendment that would have prohibited any funding in the bill from being used to provide weapons to Syrian rebels. Fortenberry noted on the House floor that "the rebel movement is a battleground of shifting alliances and bloody conflicts between groups that now include multinational terrorist organizations," that "sending our weapons into this chaotic war zone could inadvertently help these extremists," and that "it has already happened." He added: "The naive notion that we can deliver weapons to vetted, moderate opposition groups at war with other rebel militias gives no guarantee that our weaponry won't be seized or diverted."

    The House rejected Fortenberry's amendment on June 19, 2014 by a vote of 167 to 244 (Roll Call 328). We have assigned pluses to the yeas because arming "moderate" rebels in a foreign country is tantamount to going to war, which would require a declaration of war by Congress. Also, the United States should follow the Founders' advice not to become involved in foreign quarrels

    She's also a big civil rights supporter and against the spy state.

    But I will pan her on the health care discussion. She was saying how diet isn't a big enough part of health care and how they don't teach it enough in med schools. Joe asks her if the govt. should be involved in health care and she didn't give a good answer, but then went into a pretty good discussion about diet and health. He should have come back with - "Ok, well if all the politicians around you are so bad and so corrupt like you said, then why should we give them the power to control our health care?". Obviously they shouldn't be involved even if they all had good intentions, but at least it would have made her think about giving government power to all those crazy people and might make her lean more libertarian as she contemplates issues in the future.

    H R 4152: To provide for the costs of loan guarantees for Ukraine
    Vote Date: April 1, 2014 Vote: AYE Bad Vote.
    Ukraine Aid.

    This bill (H.R. 4152), as amended by the Senate (see Senate vote below), would provide $150 million for direct aid to Ukraine. It would also provide for loan guarantees (meaning that U.S. taxpayers would be stuck holding the bag if the loans are not paid). And it would impose sanctions on Russian and ex-Ukrainian officials deemed responsible for the crisis in the Ukraine.

    [ The Senate version of this legislation - offered in the form of a substitute amendment to the House version, H.R. 4152 - would provide $150 million for direct aid to Ukraine. It would also provide for loan guarantees (meaning that the U.S. taxpayers would be stuck holding the bag if the loans are not paid). And it would impose sanctions on Russian and ex-Ukrainian officials deemed responsible for the crisis in the Ukraine. ]

    The House voted for this legislation on April 1, 2014 by a vote of 378 to 34 (Roll Call 149). We have assigned pluses to the nays because foreign aid is unconstitutional. The rationale for providing U.S. aid to Ukraine is that the country needs our assistance to resist Russian hegemony and build "democracy." Yet the oligarchs wielding power in Ukraine are hardly "democrats," and (because money is fungible) U.S. assistance could effectively be funneled to Russia in the form of Ukrainian energy and debt payments.

    She votes how you would expect a Democrat to vote on most issues, but she is a million times better than all of them and can really do a lot to educate other Democrats who will listen to her.
