Congresswoman Proposes Radical Solution to Refugee Crisis, “Stop Arming Terrorists”

US Representative Tulsi Gabbard is proving to be quite the thorn in the side of the establishment warmongers. In January, Gabbard went on a secret trip to Syria to investigate first hand and to find the truth that the corporate media is covering up about the Syrian war. Since then, this brave congresswoman has remained steadfast in her mission to show Americans how their tax dollars are funding terrorism in the Middle East.

In a press conference this week, Gabbard called on President Trump to “end the regime change in Syria,” adding that this is what is causing the refugee crisis.

“The most important question is, how do we address the cause of these people fleeing their homes,” Gabbard stated before pointing to a bill that she’s submitted to Congress this year that would help in solving this problem.

The bill’s premise to stop the refugee crisis is quite simple — stop arming the terrorists.

“Stop Arming Terrorists Act,” or HR 608, would ban the use of US taxpayers’ funds to aid terrorist groups affiliated with Al-Qaeda or Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).

“For years, our government has been providing both direct and indirect support to these armed militant groups, who are working directly with or under the command of terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda and ISIS, all in their effort and fight to overthrow the Syrian government,” Gabbard said in an interview Wednesday.

During her visit to Syria in January, Gabbard met with refugees and victims of the US-backed Syrian regime change, who all asked the same question — why is the US funding terrorism.

“I’ll tell you what I heard from the Syrian people that I met with, Jake, walking down the street in Aleppo, in Damascus, hearing from them.

They expressed happiness and joy at seeing an American walking through their streets. But they also asked why the U.S. and its allies are providing support and arms to terrorist groups like al-Nusra, al-Qaida or al-Sham, ISIS who are on the ground there, raping, kidnapping, torturing and killing the Syrian people.

They asked me, why is the United States and its allies supporting these terrorist groups who are destroying Syria when it was al-Qaeda who attacked the United States on 9/11, not Syria. I didn’t have an answer for them,” Gabbard said, noting the clear dismay the average Syrian has for the U.S. support of al-Qaeda – a proposition which every American should equally question.

“The reality is… every place that I went, every person that I spoke to, I asked this question to them, and without hesitation, they said, there are no moderate rebels. Who are these moderate rebels that people keep speaking of?

Regardless of the name of these groups, the strongest fighting force on the ground in Syria is al Nusra, or al-Qaeda and ISIS. That is a fact,” Gabbard said.

As pro-war neocons — consistently beating the war drum in spite of never actually spending any time in the military — lash out at Gabbard for her Syrian trip and proposed legislation, other members of Congress, who’ve actually been in the military (like Gabbard), are showing their full support of the bill.

Representative Tom Garrett (R-Virginia), a US Army veteran, is one of those supporters who said that the goal in Syria should be peace.

“Tulsi understands that arming the so-called ‘rebels’ in Syria has only led to more bloodshed, more suffering, and created more refugees,” Tima Kurdi said in a statement on Tuesday.A military solution in Syria is not the answer. I hope that President Trump will stop arming terrorists and commit to a political solution in Syria—it is the only way to restore peace.”

        I was without work for 6 months when my early Co-worker finally strongly suggested me to get started with freelancing from home… It was actually after I earned $5000 in my first month when I actually believed I could do this for a living! At this moment I am delightful than ever… I work at home moreover I am my own boss now that I always wanted… I see so many unsatisfied people around me, working the same old boring job that’s sucking the life out of them day-after-day… Each time I see anyone similar to that I say START FREELANCING MAN! This is how I started off >>>> http://urlfat.com/4Bd

      Especially with a thin-skinned president sharpening his bayonet by way of budget increases to the military.

  • jimeckland

    The USA shouldn’t be doing it and needs to come clean to the American people about this issue….if of course it’s happening !!

  • Blaine

    If she ran for Pres I’d actually pull the “D” lever. Would be a surreal moment to be sure but I’d do it.

  • Darlene Krug-Savell

    Tulsi Gabbard is right on the money…she has walked the walk and knows what to Look for…When she says that the US has been arming the Terrorists (under Clinton and Obama…my observation) she speaks the truth…She is not In the pocket of SOROS like John McCain…When she says that refugees are the result of arming terrorists…she is right…And who benefitted from the sale of arms? Saudis, Clinton Foundation and Obama/Soros “slush funds.”…Do some research and you will find this to be true…Also, think about it, if YOU were forced to be a REFUGEE because your homes and lives were destroyed by war…would you want to travel to another country OR Would you rather have stability in your own country and STAY where you grew up, lived, worked,played, worshipped?Think about all of this in the context of being a human being with a family and no other agenda other than to live a good and productive life. These people are the victims of the neocons and the BiLLIONAIRES….We need to STOP ARMING TERRORISTS. The neocons have been getting away with TREASON for far too long/LOGAN ACT IS JUST ONE EXAMPLE. Listen to this truthteller.I would suggest that you visit YOU TUBE /George Webb start with day100 if not earlier.Today is number 130.

    • You left out Bush Jr. and Bush Sr. along with Raygun.

      We’ve been arming and funding terrorists for a very long time.

      Tulsi and Tom are two very lonely voices in a stadium full of corrupt politicians (both “parties”), it is time to replace the government with something that works for the people once again.

  • 174thandvyse

    This lady is right. Why must the United States get involved in “blood feuds”? Just because Binyamin “I hate Arabs” Netanya-filth wants to destabilize his neighbors is no reason why we should go along with him. Let that ANIMAL solve his own problems.

    As an Australian I wish to extend my congratulations to Ms Gabbard to expose the Political & Irrational Turmoil Syria is subjected to. She does so with quiet ferocity and “Hard facts” which clearly “shows & conclusively proves” the atrocities the Syrian people are subjected to just for the sake of a few more “Lousy Dollars” into the pockets of the International banking Cartels and to enable introduction of an EVIL “One World Government”.
    Ms Gabbard is one of the few female politicians (from around the globe) who not only is “Physically a Female” but also introduces the (unfortunately Long Lost) feminine attributes into play by exposing the “Humane” side of this situation rather than supporting the GREED perspective.
    She is not only a Beautiful female but – more important – is a “Caring Human Being”!
    Congratulation and “Keep it up”.

    As I learned on “VICE” news, part of the problem for us is that all the bombs & ordinance left behind all proudly say “made the USA” by the various defense contractors. Kind of makes it hard to manage an effective propaganda campaign.
