Democrat 2020 hopeful Tulsi Gabbard was thrust into the national spotlight, despite only being at 1.2% in the polls, thanks to Hillary Clinton, who attacked her by claiming she’s a “Russian asset.”

As soon as the news broke, the right-wing media and many Trump supporters jumped to Tulsi’s defense and slammed Hillary.

In no time flat, Tulsi was appearing on Fox News, and fundraising off of Hillary’s nasty comments.

Suddenly Tulsi went from “nobody” to “somebody.”

But why?

Do you think President Biden should be impeached for the crisis in Afghanistan and loss of American lives?

The strange move left many people wondering why Hillary called out a woman who doesn’t even have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning the nomination?

One interesting theory emerged, claiming that perhaps Dems want to run the popular “independent-minded” Tulsi as a 3rd party candidate to try and siphon swing votes from Trump.

You can read that theory here.

While many people love to bash Hillary and are so tired of the “Russia” insanity, others are cautioning the right not to get too “excited” defending Tulsi – especially those people on the right who are painting her as a “moderate” Democrat.

Yes, compared to the radicals like AOC and Elizabeth Warren, Tulsi seems like an old-school moderate Democrat. And many independents and folks on the right appreciate her anti-war stance and of course, respect her service to her country. But it’s important to remember the enemy we’re up against, and remember that they may take many forms and wear many costumes. So, while it’s fine to defend someone from a smear attack, we as conservatives need to know when to say “when” and back off.

In other words, sometimes things are happening below the surface that we know nothing about.

Case in point – back in 2016, Wikileaks released a series of emails from the account of Hillary campaign chair John Podesta.

Now, as you probably already know, when you think about “bad guys” on the left, Podesta is a name at the very top of nearly everyone’s list.

So, imagine our surprise (not really) when an old Wikileaks-released email resurfaced, showing Podesta was the “mastermind” behind Tulsi Gabbard’s election win in Hawaii.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand emailed John Podesta to thank him for his help in getting the “progressive” elected. She also references her uber feminist group called “Off the Sidelines” and how Tulsi embodies the spirit of that movement.

Be careful, everyone. You don’t want to inadvertently become a tool for the left.
