Tucker Carlson isn’t the only one going off on the Pantsuit Empire’s attempts to stir up war with Russia over nothing. Tulsi Gabbard, one of the few straight-speaking Democrats, is too.
She, in a blistering statement, said “As warmongers in the White House escalate tensions with Russia, let’s be real about what we’re dealing with – open conflict between two nuclear armed powers. The only place this conflict can end is the destruction of the world and life as we know it. This is what’s at stake.”
To accentuate that statement, she released a video, which you can watch here:

During the video, she rips into the jingoistic members of Team Brandon, “men” like Blinken and Sullivan that are rattling the saber now that they can risk other people’s lives. In the video, she says:
“Unfortunately, in this White House, we have warmongers and people like Jake Sullivan and Tony Blinken, who had a very strong hand in being the architects of regime change wars in Iraq, in Libya, in Syria and they’re the ones who are influencing the decisions being made by this White House”
Further, that video comes from a long conversation she had with FNC’s Steve Hilton.
During that interview, after discussing the authoritarian impulses of those seeking to start a domestic war on terror, Hilton asked her about Ukraine, saying:
it looks like we may be heading towards another entanglement in another foreign war, with what’s going on with Russia and Ukraine.
[…]The question I have for you is how do we balance this, we want to deter aggression, of course, but we don’t want to get sucked into these military coflilcts. You have intelligence services putting out this information looking like they’re wanting to take us into war again. What do we do?
Tulsi responded by saying:
This brings us back to the last point: Our leaders should be acting in the best interest of the American people and our country.
Unfortunately in this White House, we have warmongers and people like Jake Sullivan and Tony Binken, who had a very strong hand in being the architects of regime change wars in Iraq, Libya, and Syria.
They’re the ones influencing the decisions made by this White House, they’re stoking tension and escalating the situation that can only lead us down a more dangerous path that directly undermines the interest of the American people in our country.
Let’s be real about what we’re dealing with here. We’re talking about the United States and Russia, two great nuclear-armed powers in the world. There is only one place that that conflict ends, it ends and destruction of this world and life as we know it. Don’t be naïve or shy about pointing out what is at stake — and that’s with American people need to know. And that’s what the people in the White House and leaders in the Congress of both sides of both sides of the aisle refused to tell them the truth about.
It’s a point that needed to be made; when Team Brandon rattles the saber over something that shouldn’t even be the issue, what they’re risking isn’t another Afghanistan-style humiliation. What they’re risking is a world-ending nuclear war.
