Copy of her letter to donors, and comment, below the fold.
As received from an Alert Reader who has donated to Gabbard in the past.
I want to thank you all very much for your support. I need to share something with you. It is very important: I am giving serious consideration to boycotting the next debate and I want to tell you why:
There are so many of you who I’ve met in Iowa and New Hampshire who have expressed to me how frustrated you are that the DNC and corporate media are essentially trying to usurp your role as voters in choosing who our Democratic nominee will be.
I share your concerns, and I’m sure that all our supporters throughout the country do as well.
The 2016 Democratic Primary election was rigged by the DNC and their partners in the corporate media against Bernie Sanders.
In this 2020 election, the DNC and corporate media are rigging the election again, but this time against the American people in the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada.
They are attempting to replace the roles of voters in the early states, using polling and other arbitrary methods which are not transparent or democratic, and holding so-called debates which are not debates at all but rather commercialized reality television meant to entertain, not inform or enlighten
In short, the DNC and corporate media are trying to hijack the entire election process.
In order to bring attention to this serious threat to our democracy, and ensure your voice is heard, I am giving serious consideration to boycotting the next debate on October 15th. I will announce my decision within the next few days.
With my deepest, and warmest aloha, thank you all again for your support.
Phi Beta Iota Comment:
First, please do look over the comments at the video, they boil down to the DNC seeking to manipulate the entire 2020 election process not only to manufacture who the nominee is, by-passing the entire primary process, but also to actually help Donald Trump win, focus on raising money and being obstructionist from 2020-2024, and wait for 2024.
Second, this move by Tulsi Gabbard could be an extraordinarily clever bid to be considered as Trump’s Vice President in a cross-over ticket that we have long recommended, but with the vastly more experienced, authentic, and black American Dr. Cynthia McKinney. Certainly Gabbard would be an improvement over Pence or Nikki Haley, but she would also be largely cosmetic, unable to deal with the Senate in a substantive manner. Dr. McKinney is UNIQUE.
Regardless of her motives, there is some truth being told here. Combined with the exclusion of Marianne Williamson, who should be in every debate, we agree that the DNC is crooked (as are the media celebrating the DNC’s crooked insubstantive debates) we salute her initiative and her point.
If President Trump were to select a cross-over VP, and at the same time submit #UNRIG Unity with Integrity (Election Reform Act of 2020) to Congress demanding passage by the 4th of July with at least one provision implemented in time for November (paper ballots counted publicly onsite) and the rest for 2020, he could actually fulfill his most important promise: to unrig the rigged system.
UPDATE from Alert Reader
Gabbard is a fraud. She is not a combat veteran, she was the equivalent of a nurse manager after going though military police as an enlisted person from which she was then commissioned into the high demand medical support service. She is also in constant flagrant violation of DoD regulations regarding the abuse of images of herself in uniform, and misrepresentation of her military career.
