On Friday, former Congresswoman and ex-Democrat Tulsi Gabbard campaigned for Georgia Republican Senate nominee Herschel Walker.


Former congresswoman and Democrat Tulsi Gabbard campaigned in Georgia on Friday for Republican Senate nominee Herschel Walker.

Gabbard, who left the Democratic Party in October, slammed the left and urged voters to protect freedom by voting for the GOP. The former Hawaii representative has been storming the country campaigning for Republicans, including Kristi Noem in South Dakota, Tudor Dixon in Michigan, and Adam Laxalt in Nevada.

Gabard ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 and has served as the vice chair of the DNC. Her switch to supporting Republicans has caused major ripples in the political landscape.

Addressing the crowd in Georgia, Tulsi Gabbard said:

When you look at the party that's in charge today in Washington, the Democrat Party, which I just left a few weeks ago,

I left because I am a proud American and someone who loves this country deeply. As someone who has taken an oath both as a soldier when I enlisted in 2003 and as a member of Congress elected in 2012, I took an oath and made a promise to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

I've deployed to war zones three times in my time in service, and I'm proud to continue to serve today in the reserves. But we, as Americans, are right now facing a threat to our freedoms. And that threat is not coming from another country; that threat is coming from leaders who are abusing their power to serve their own selfish interests, seeking to take away our freedoms.

How dangerous is it that we have leaders in power in the White House and in Congress who are trying to silence, smear, and censor those who disagree with them?

Those in positions of power are weaponizing our own public institutions like the Department of Justice, the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Education, and the Department of Health and Human Services. You go down the list of these federal agencies that are supposed to protect our freedom, that are supposed to protect our children, to protect the most vulnerable amongst us, and they are being weaponized against us.

to go after their political opponents, to go after parents who are going to the board of education and saying, "Hey, I'm concerned about what you're teaching my kid in school," only to be told by the government, "No, you don't get a say, you don't have a right to say how your child is educated in public schools."

Even worse, you should call the domestic terror unit against these parents, who say you are a threat. The threat is coming from those who are abusing their power, and so as much as you'll hear from famous people now telling you how bad of a guy Herschel Walker is, they are using these smear tactics because they cannot stand on principle.

They refuse to debate the issues and resort to name-calling and smear tactics, hoping that they can distract you from paying attention to the harm that they are causing to this country.

We are not distracted, and we will not allow them to distract us. They are more powerful when they put us as Americans against each other, and that's why I'm here today to ask you to share with others to remind us who we really are, that even as we may agree or disagree on certain issues, now is the time, if we care about this country that we love, that we have to stand together as Americans and not allow them to take our freedoms away.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) fired at Elon Musk after she claimed her Twitter notifications were not working.  In an Instagram story posted on Wednesday, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed that her Twitter notifications were no longer working after she criticized Elon Musk. The criticism was over Musk's plan to charge users $8 a month to verify their accounts. Musk posted a tweet yesterday with a photo of a sweatshirt sold on the New York Democrats' website for 58 dollars. AOC fired back, saying that her workers are in a union and make a living wage, and proceeds go to, quote, "community investments" like tutoring kids. Ocasio-Cortez delighted in the fact that Musk lashed out at her, saying, quote, "We have a billionaire." That's the American dream right there. In her released video, AOC said: I was at a community event in the Bronx

WATCH: Biden Gaffes Again, While Speaking In Florida Rally

  Photo credit: Gage Skidmore/CC BY-SA 2.0,  via Flickr President Biden gaffes about the "war in Iraq" causing inflation while speaking in Florida, then blames his reference to Iraq on his son Beau dying there; Beau Biden died in Walter Reed years after his service in Iraq. President Joe Biden misspoke again at a rally in South Florida on Tuesday. During his remarks, President Joe Biden accidentally said that inflation was caused by quoting the war in Iraq. The president then corrected himself and said it was Ukraine, but I didn't study was quote thinking of Iraq because that's where my son died. Biden's son Beau Biden served in Iraq from 2008 to 2009.  Biden has previously claimed that Beau died in Iraq despite the fact that he died at Walter Reed many years following his service. Biden has said he believes exposures to burn pitoxins may have contributed to the cancer that claimed beau's life. He said: “They talk about inflation… inflation is a worldwide

Trump Mocks DeSantis During Pennsylvania Rally: 'Ron DeSanctimonious'

Photo "Donald Trump" by  Dan Scavino Former US President Donald Trump mocked Ron DeSantis as "Ron DeSanctimonious" at a Latrobe rally yesterday in Pennsylvania. Watch out for his complete reaction below. Trump, while addressing his rally, said these lines: Today I have the highest poll numbers I've ever had, perhaps partly because the Democrats are so severely running our country and people want our tremendous success of no inflation, energy independence, and military victory (remember, I defeated ISIS one hundred percent). Remember Al-Baghdadi and so many other things, including crime? We had it weighed down. But we have the best poll numbers; where are they putting them up on the screen? I think you should put them up and look at them. We are winning big, big, big in the Republican Party for the nomination like nobody's ever seen before. Let's say there is Trump at 71, Ron DeSanctimonious at 10 percent, and Mike Pence at seven. Targeting forme

DeSantis Issues Warning To Doctors Performing Gender Affirming Surgery On Minors

  Photo credit: Gage Skidmore/CC BY-SA 2.0,  via Flickr At a campaign event yesterday, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) slammed doctors who perform gender confirmation surgeries on minors. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis continued his campaign for re-election on Wednesday, focusing on cultural and war issues. DeSantis has doubled down on his controversial stance on gender-affirming care for minors; he decried the teaching of so-called gender theory in public schools. A topic that has earned him accusations of transphobia and bigotry by many LGBTQ Americans and their allies DeSantis has celebrated his state's commitment to take doctors' medical licenses if they performed gender-firming surgeries on minors as well. The issue has become a hot topic among Republican politicians, who believe it can help them win votes among parents wary of social change. This sentence is currently leading his Democratic challenger Charlie Crist by double digits. DeSantis mentioned in his speech that:
