I don't know much about Amy Klobuchar but 

 

According to GovTrack, Klobuchar passed more legislation than any other senator by the end of the 114th Congress in late 2016.[28] According to Congress.gov, as of December 16, 2018, she had sponsored or co-sponsored 111 pieces of legislation that became law.[54] During the 115th Congress she voted in line with Trump's position on legislation 31.1% of the time.

Apparently, Elizabeth Warren was the most googled participant before the debate and Tulsi Gabbard was the most googled after the debate. 

 

The primaries are hopefully going to be a real face ripper.

Russian asset or not, Tulsi is anything but a Democrat. Here are some interesting things about here (list taken from another source):

 

Tulsi Gabbard comes from a family of conservative activists, most famous for their opposition to gay marriage in Hawaii.

Tulsi Gabbard has said her personal views on LGBT equality haven't changed as recently as 2015.

Tulsi Gabbard is rated "F" by Progressive Punch for voting with Republicans, despite the strong progressive lean of her district.

Tulsi Gabbard was nearly a part of Trump's cabinet at Steve Bannon's suggestion.

Tulsi Gabbard has also been praised multiple times by Steve Bannon, Trump's former strategist and prolific white nationalist propagandist.

Tulsi Gabbard declined to join 169 Democrats in condemning Trump for appointing Steve Bannon to his cabinet.

Tulsi Gabbard isn't anti-war. She's a self-described hawk against terrorists. Her narrow objections center around efforts to spread democracy: "In short, when it comes to the war against terrorists, I'm a hawk," Gabbard said. "When it comes to counterproductive wars of regime change, I'm a dove."

Tulsi Gabbard copies the rhetoric of Republicans: Gabbard voted against condemning Bashar al-Assad, president of Syria, and was praised by conservative media for publicly challenging President Barack Obama over his refusal to use the term "Islamic extremism" when discussing terrorism.

Tulsi Gabbard also copies the policy of Republicans, voting with them to block Syrian refugees.

Tulsi Gabbard has multiple connections to Hindu nationalists.

Tulsi Gabbard frequently repeats Russian talking points and works to legitimize Assad.

Tulsi Gabbard was one of only 3 representatives to not condemn Assad for gassing Syrian civilians and the only Democrat.

Tulsi Gabbard has introduced legislation pushed by GOP-megadonor, Sheldon Adelson.

Tulsi was later awarded a "Champions of Freedom" medal at Adelson's annual gala in 2016.

Tulsi is the favorite of Fox News, including white supremacist Tucker Carlson, and is favored by right-wing media and politicians for her policies and stances.

Tulsi Gabbard is not a liberal. She's a conservative who ran as a Republican in Hawaii for a bit then figured out that the Republican Party is effectively dead in Hawaii, so she reinvented herself as a "Democrat" in order to get elected. She's an LGBTQ-condemning, Muslim-hating, Nazi-endorsed conservative in Democrat's clothing.

 

Then, of course, there's the fact that alt-bicus is a fan, which is saying something in itself. You pay Alex her money yet, fizzle boy?

The Russian collusion narrative is a conspiracy theory.  Jill Stein is not a Russian asset either.   Hillary is unhinged.

Shouldn't you link to the source of that list?  You don't have a single original thought.

Since el jello doesn't like her, it may just mean that he feels physically inadequate since she posts videos on twitter of her workouts.

David Ernest Duke (born July 1, 1950) is an American neo-Nazi, anti-semitic conspiracy theorist, far-right politician, convicted felon, and former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. Duke is a Holocaust denier, and espouses conspiracy theories about Jewish control of academia, the press, and the financial system.[3][4] Duke has been described by the Anti-Defamation League as "perhaps America’s most well-known racist and anti-Semite".[5]

 

In 2002, Duke pleaded guilty to felony fraud. Specifically, he defrauded his political supporters by pretending to be in dire financial straits, and asking them for money to help him pay for basic necessities. At the time, Duke was financially secure, and he used his supporters' money for recreational gambling.[6] He subsequently served a 15-month sentence at Federal Correctional Institution, Big Spring in Texas.[7]

Because Putin's state-run media keep promoting her. They even have a whole section dedicated to her. It's where alt-bicus and our other alt-members get their talking points.

 

Case in point:

Those were Russian bots doing the googling and the tweeting, just to get Gabbard a few column inches in the news (and give alt-bicus a talking point).

 

No wonder Hillary suspects she's being set up as a third-party spoiler, just like Jill Stein in 2016.

Except for warmongers like yourself, why would anyone trust someone like Bill Browder, whose father was the head of the American Communist party, and who gave up his American citizenship to minimize his tax burden?

 

Why is this guy some sort of moral compass to you?   What the hell?

Billionaire and former Goldman Sachs partner Michael Novogratz urged his rich friends to “lighten up” about Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and her plans to impose a wealth tax if she’s elected president.

“You’re not victims; you’re the richest people in the world,” Novogratz said Friday in an interview with Bloomberg. “How in God’s name do you feel like a victim?” 

“It’s insanity,” he said. ”‘They’re going to come and get us.’ No! You’re going to get taxed a little more. Lighten up!”

Novogratz, who is now invested in cryptocurrency, said it makes sense to tax the wealthy to help those who are struggling in the nation.

“The way the country is functioning today, the bottom 60% aren’t doing well,” Novogratz noted. Warren is “speaking to that group. She wants to redistribute.”

He said that 97% of the “people in my world are really, really fearful of her.”

They “don’t like her, they’re worried about her, they think she’s anti-rich,” he added. “It’s a little carried away.”

Novogratz said he’d prefer a more “centrist” Democratic candidate but isn’t yet convinced anyone else can win. He called Warren a “good politician” as well as “smart” and “witty.”

You tell me.   You are against an anti-war candidate and seem to worship the intel services.

 

That is what passes as "progressive" these days.   Pathetic.

 

Shillary lends credibility to your nutty Russian Collusion conspiracy nuttery.    You're good.
