      Heheheh…I guess I am not seeing the whole message…weird.  I don’t see what Tulsi says that is so offensive.

       

      Is there a link?

      Finally women are being heard...finally women are roaring.....

      A recent video:

      “Trump remembers very well that the only times he has been praised almost universally by the mainstream media, Republicans, and Democrats, was when he has engaged in aggressive military actions. Brian Williams, Fareed Zakaria and others could hardly contain their delight.

      “CNN’s Fareed Zakaria said, ‘Donald Trump became president of the United States’ the moment the bombs started dropping. MSNBC’s Brian Williams praised the launching of US missiles, saying, ‘I am guided by the beauty of our weapons.” The Washington Post’s David Ignatius said that he thought that by taking this action, Trump “restored the credibility of American power.’”

        Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement after voting against H.Res.11:

        “A few weeks ago, the United Nations voted on a resolution condemning Israeli settlement activity. While the UN resolution was one-sided and problematic in many respects, it recognized that the continued expansion of Israeli settlements undermines the path to peace in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. On January 5, 2017 the U.S. House of Representatives considered H.Res.11 which condemns the UN’s actions, as well as the U.S. government’s decision not to block the UN Resolution. I voted against H.Res.11 because it represents a one-sided view of the current situation, and undermines a long history of bipartisan U.S. efforts to work through bilateral and multilateral forums toward a two-state solution.

      From the article in the link in the OP.

      As we dissect these few sentences, we must remember that between November, 2014 and November, 2016, the illustrious Ms. Gabbard received $21,975 from pro-Israeli lobbies. This is a mere pittance when compared to the contributions of some of her colleagues, with Illinois Representative Bradley Scott Schneider being the big winner, with a windfall of $300,932 during that same time period. But that grand prize is one that Ms. Gabbard, if she plays her Zionist cards right, can obtain, or even exceed.

      Bold added by me. This writer reminds me of when some forum posters created a site where they could more freely bash Sanders and his supporters, and one created a thread that spoke of Sanders fleeing with cash to Israel, where he is guaranteed citizenship.

      Just tried seeing if I could copy and paste some of that language; but I keep just getting my same edit box back inviting me to “Submit” (again and again).

      On edit: But with my own text and not the copied text, it works.

      I’m going to try another way:

      “A few weeks ago, the United Nations voted on a resolution condemning Israeli settlement activity. While the UN resolution was one-sided and problematic in many respects, it recognized that the continued expansion of Israeli settlements undermines the path to peace in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. On January 5, 2017 the U.S. House of Representatives considered H.Res.11 which condemns the UN’s actions, as well as the U.S. government’s decision not to block the UN Resolution.  I voted against H.Res.11 because it represents a one-sided view of the current situation, and undermines a long history of bipartisan U.S. efforts to work through bilateral and multilateral forums toward a two-state solution.

      “I know how important our enduring alliance with Israel is. My vote upholds my commitment to maintaining and strengthening this alliance, as well as my long-held position that the most viable path to peace between Israel and Palestine can be found through both sides negotiating a two-state solution. While I remain concerned about aspects of the UN Resolution, I share the Obama Administration’s reservation about the harmful impact Israeli settlement activity has on the prospects for peace.

      Ok, that worked.  Instead of pasting directly into the Reply text box, I pasted first into a Text Edit doc and converted it to “Plain Text” format, then copied that and pasted it here.

      Destruction is easy; creation is hard, but more interesting.

      At this point, i’ll take Tulsi over any other democrat out there mulling a run for president.

      That’s the link embedded in the OP. Though I disagree with what’s at the link, I’m fine with it being posted. 🙂

      policy position. Domestic priorities will always come first with me, for admittedly selfish and down home reasons, but I know I am not alone on that front.

      As for Israel, I disagree with both Bernie and Tulsi, as well as the UN, in that I don’t believe the two-state solution will ever work for long. One secular country with guaranteed, and enforced, freedom of religion is the only way to go. That means no caliphate, and no Jewish State.

      The only alternative is, IMHO, a war of extermination, which is the stuff of Netanyahu’s dreams, and that of quite a few Islamic zealots as well.
