Mike Gravel Returns to Political Scene, Tells the Absolute Truth on US Foreign Policy

Liberal icon Mike Gravel is from a different age, representing a form of leftism that once led the fight against government secrecy. A former Senator from the state of Alaska, he filibustered to get the Pentagon Papers into the public record in 1971.

He has emerged to run for the Democratic nomination in 2020 at the age of 88 to bring sanity to a field that mostly has fallen into xenophobia, conspiracy theories, and absolute submission to totalitarian government bureaucracy.

Gravel recently posted a Tweet exposing the absolute truth about US foreign policy:

Gravel then shared a quote from dissident political scientist Michael Parenti, who said, “US policy is not filled with contradictions and inconsistencies. It has performed brilliantly and steadily in the service of those who own most of the world and who want to own all of it.”

The octogenarian was just getting warmed up and continued to challenge the foreign policy orthodoxy of his party.

Gravel even hammered Obama and his former administration, something that is considered heretical in liberal circles these days. He pummeled Obama for posing in photo ops next to the African despots he modeled himself after.

Although Gravel has no chance to secure the Democratic nomination, he along with Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) gives two protest options for liberal-minded people who want to stop the madness to support as their candidate for 2020.
