Russia got a gift the other night when two of their prized assets appeared together on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show. Tulsi Gabbard, ripped into the Biden administration again, saying that their ultimate goal was not so much saving Ukraine as the destruction of the Russian state.

Speaking to Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night, former Democratic Representative for Hawaii Tulsi Gabbard warned Joe Biden and his administration to take the threat of nuclear war by Russia seriously and said that Russia has been clear it is not ruling out the use of nuclear weapons.

TULSI GABBARD: "What [U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin] is not telling the American people is that Russia has also made it clear that if we even get close to 'winning' or achieving this mission and goal he has outlined, Russia has said very clearly they will have no other option than to resort to the use of nuclear weapons. Starting first with tactical nuclear weapons and, if necessary, escalating to the use of strategic nuclear weapons. This is not fear-mongering to point this out, the American people need to know this is the track that this administration has put us on and [that] very dire consequences will occur if we continue down to this path. This is the reality we are facing. The Biden administration policies, words and actions, it has just been made very clear to us what their real goal is and their real goal is the destruction of the Russian state."

A clip of her interview has gone viral on Twitter and has been viewed over 150,000 times.


Kremlin propagandists are very pleased with Tulsi Gabbard's "excellent speech" on Tucker Carlson's show, since Tulsi is helping the Kremlin to rattle its nuclear weapons âwhich is frankly the only fear factor at its disposal to deter the world from helping Ukraine defend itself. pic.twitter.com/aXYW2gP0nm

Biden/NATO actions & words make it clear their goal is to cripple Russia economy/military. Russia's made it clear that if the West gets close to achieving that, they'll resort to nukes. Biden/NATO have put us on path to nuclear Armageddon. We need to wake up before it's too late. pic.twitter.com/TqNpOYlOmy

Tell us why you think so. Give us your definition of treason.

The truth is that Russia has essentially lost, but Putin won't concede.

Kinda like Trump

"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort." - Article III, Section 3 of the US Constitution

I think it's pretty clear that when an enemy foreign government currently attacking our allies endorses the quotes from a specific political faction, network and TV show that have been defending them, and some going so far as to even praise them, are "adhering to" our "Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort".

Gabbard should be ashamed of herself for making such a dangerous and libelous accusation, which she has zero evidence of, that gives an enemy of the United States propaganda ammunition to further their murderous illegal actions.

The truth is that Russia has essentially lost, but Putin won't concede. Kinda like Trump

And the same folk who support/supported Trumps lie seem to be out defending Putin's lies after they heard the tangerine toddler call Putin a "genius".

Doesn't suborn mean to induce secretly to do an unlawful thing?  How do you do that on a TV show?

Merriam Webster's version does.....so who knows really I guess.

Definition of suborn

transitive verb

1 : to induce secretly to do an unlawful thing
2 : to induce to commit perjury also : to obtain (perjured testimony) from a witness

Either Merriam or Webster disagree.  Isn't "Suborn” derived from the Latin word "subornare," which translates literally as "to secretly furnish or equip."

Joe Biden has bluntly told us that the interests of the United States in the Ukrainian invasion has been to unify NATO and weaken Russia.  The Biden policy towards Ukraine has been focused on expanding NATO and weakening Russia through sanctions and economic isolation.  Biden is only using Ukraine as a means to an end.  

Tulsi Gabbard repeating Joe Biden's stated policy isn't a gift to Putin.  Attempting to spread disinformation about Joe Biden's stated policy isn't honest journalism, either.

Blaming Putin doesn't change Joe Biden's policy objectives.

Russia spends less than 10 pct of what the United States spends on the military.    And we're supposed to believe that Russia is a military threat to the United States and NATO?

Russia is a nuclear threat to the United States.  And Joe Biden's policy objectives have only increased that threat.  The United States and NATO have sufficient conventional military capability to crush Russia in Ukraine.  But that overwhelmingly superior conventional capability has been completely hamstrung by Russia's nuclear threat.

Joe Biden is not fighting a war in Ukraine.  Joe Biden isn't even defending Ukraine.  Joe Biden's policy requires the destruction of Ukraine (and destabilizing the global economy) to weaken Russia's conventional military capability which poses little threat to the United States and NATO.  Biden is only forcing Russia to rely more heavily on Russia's nuclear threat.  Biden's policy really has made the world less safe.

Turkey understands what NATO membership entails and how NATO membership impinges on national sovereignty. 

Russia has threatened Finland and Sweden in retaliation for joining NATO.  But Russia did not threaten invasion.  What were the Russian threats directed toward Finland and Sweden?

"Finland's accession to NATO will cause serious damage to bilateral Russian-Finnish relations and maintenance of stability and security in the Northern European region," the Foreign Ministry said. "Russia will be forced to take retaliatory steps, both of a military-technical and other nature, in order to neutralize the threats to its national security that arise from this."

Biden fucked it up. Biden has earned no praise.  Putin's invasion of Ukraine could have been avoided by returning to the Minsk agreements.  But that would have required throwing Obama under the bus.

Biden's desire for a confrontation with Putin has only increased the risk of nuclear war.  Biden's idea of progress apparently is to make things worse.  The United States military still wants to prove a nuclear war can be won.  But that would be an extraordinarily costly victory.

In a Monday morning interview with Fox Business’s   Stuart Varney,   Trump offered that if he was president right now, he’d threaten   Vladimir Putin   with nuclear war.

“I listened to him constantly using the N-word, that’s the N-word, and he’s constantly using it: the nuclear word,” Trump   said   describing his talks with the Russian leader, while absolutely bizarrely suggesting “the N-word” refers to “nuclear.” “We say, ’Oh, he’s a nuclear power.’ But we’re a greater nuclear power. We have the greatest submarines in the world, the most powerful machines ever built…. You should say, ‘Look, if you mention that word one more time, we’re going to send them over and we’ll be coasting back and forth, up and down your coast. You can’t let this tragedy continue. You can’t let these, these thousands of people die.”

Joe Biden is not following Trump policy.  Biden ain't Trump, remember?  And I have not advocated threatening Russia with nuclear war.

So, what's your point?

"The Biden administration policies, words and actions, it has just been made very clear to us what their real goal is and their real goal is the destruction of the Russian state." - Gabbard

"Weaken" is not "destruction. Weaken is used when you are attempting to stop an enemy foreign government from attacking an ally when it would be too much of a threat to join a war directly. What Gabbard did was give aid and comfort to Putin and his vile murderous genocidal regime. Those who can't see this clear line she crossed should be ashamed of themselves and I wonder how they could ever consider themselves American patriots.

The line is clear, such treasonous behavior 60 years ago would have gotten you thrown in jail and it was primarily the white Christian conservatives doing the throwing. Now they are the ones siding with an enemy foreign government over America. It truly is a sad time in America and I hope any who continue to criticize our government while praising and defending a murderous dictator who is currently killing women and children and attacking a sovereign nation unprovoked. Frankly its disgusting, but not unexpected from the tiki torch conservative mob.

She basically said to not focus on Russia's illegal invasion of an American ally, but to see this as 'the Biden administration' trying to destroy Russia which is almost verbatim from the Putin propaganda playbook, it's the exact rhetoric Putin needs to continue pushing his illegal war. If that's not "aid and comfort" I really don't know what would be.

That's a bullshit argument.  The United States and NATO have overwhelming conventional superiority over Russia's conventional capability.  Russia's conventional capability poses no threat to the United States and NATO.  The United States and NATO could overwhelm Russia's forces in Ukraine pretty quickly.  (And Volodymyr Zelensky and Ukrainians know that.  It's the American public who is ignorant.)

Russia's nuclear threat has placed the United State's and NATO's conventional superiority on the sidelines.  Biden isn't fighting a war in Ukraine.  Biden isn't even defending Ukraine.  Biden's policy approach has forced Russia to rely more heavily upon its nuclear threat.  Biden's policies really have made the world less safe.

How is Biden going to destroy Russia with sanctions and economic isolation?  Biden may topple Putin but it's quite likely that Putin would be replaced with a hardline government that will rely more heavily on nuclear threats to defend itself.  Biden's hardline policy of economic isolation is not going to turn Russia into a western democracy.  Should Biden succeed in toppling Putin then Navalny and his supporters would likely be quietly executed. 

So, Tulsi Gabbard is correct in that Biden's policy approach has left little choice other than to destroy Russia.  Otherwise Russia becomes a bigger threat; especially if Biden's objective is to topple Putin.  The problem is that the destruction of Russia is going to require a nuclear war.
