Former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard issued a message on Memorial Day honoring veterans while blasting the warmongers who send them to die in third-world hellscapes for prestige and profit.
“On this Memorial Day weekend, as we reflect upon & honor those heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, let us reject the self-serving warmongers & media propagandists who are now preparing the American ppl for more wars—from Asia/Pacific to Eastern Europe/Russia,” she wrote in a social media post on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Vice President Kamala Harris refused to acknowledge the troops – perhaps in a deliberate slight against our nation’s heroes – with her message celebrating the “long weekend”:

Gabbard has become reviled by the political class, including the establishments of both major parties, for her willingness to attack the military-industrial complex. Most politicians from both parties remain tight-lipped about the crimes committed by the U.S. empire at the behest of Pentagon officials who are owned by defense contractors.
Liberty Conservative News has reported on how these elites know the war effort is completely futile but deliberately keep the public in the dark to protect their paychecks and prestige:
“A report released by the Washington Post on Monday has confirmed the obvious: officials in the deep state and the intelligence community have been deliberately lying to the public about the war in Afghanistan for many years.
Journalists perused 2,000 pages of interviews obtained due to a Freedom of Information Act request. In those documents, they discovered that influential U.S. officials have known that the war was a losing effort for years. These perspectives were largely suppressed to the public so the agenda preferred by the military-industrial complex could continue.
“If the American people knew the magnitude of this dysfunction … 2,400 lives lost. Who will say this was in vain?” said retired Army Lt. Gen. Douglas Lute, who advised former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama on Afghanistan policy, in a Feb. 2015 interview.
Bob Crowley, a former counterinsurgency adviser in Afghanistan from 2013 to 2014, noted that the “truth was rarely welcome” within a military bureaucracy that “just wanted to hear good news, so bad news was often stifled.”
“Every data point was altered to present the best picture possible,” Crowley said. “Surveys, for instance, were totally unreliable but reinforced that everything we were doing was right, and we became a self-licking ice cream cone.”
Lt. Col. Daniel Davis confirmed that Pentagon brass and other interventionist officials knew the war was unwinnable, but knowingly perpetrated lies and allowed troops to die needlessly for a lost cause.
“This stuff has been known,” Davis said.
“It was known at all levels,” he added. “They have known from the beginning that the war was unwinnable, but they continued to say the exact opposite.”
“How many more men still have to die before we finally do the right thing?” he asked.”
If America does not collapse into ruin, it will be because leaders like Tulsi Gabbard had the courage to stand against seemingly insurmountable odds. She has emerged to take the torch from Ron Paul and lead the liberty movement for the long haul.
