This post was updated on 23 October 2019, to include info on election security, and section on, “What, exactly, is Tulsi Gabbard up to?”
Tulsi Gabbard tells us she is thinking about boycotting the debates to protest DNC election rigging, and asks her supporters to vote on it.
Tulsi announces she will be participating in the debates.
NYT publishes an anti-Tulsi manifesto that frames her protest as if she were “injecting chaos” into the party on behalf of the Russians.
Various DNC operatives start using talking points from the manifesto on social media, accusing Tulsi of being a Russian asset.
Tulsi calls out the media for smearing her, during the debates.
Hillary accuses Tulsi of being a Russian Asset.
Hillary Clinton doesn't just predict the Russians will support Tulsi Gabbard as a third-party candidate; she also calls Jill Stein "a Russian asset — I mean totally."

When asked if Hillary was talking about Tulsi here, Hillary’s spokesperson answered: “If the nesting doll fits.”
A year ago, I would have agreed. Back when I used to follow Louise Mensch and Caroline Orr on Twitter, I was convinced that Tulsi was co-opted by the Kremlin.
But when I started actually researching the candidates, I was shocked to discover that of them all, Tulsi actually has the strongest record for voting in favor of Ukraine, against Russia.
I even challenged PropOrNot to prove me wrong about this once… and he totally could not. What’s more… he didn’t even care. He kept ignoring her record, and continued to sling the accusations. This pattern was repeated by every anti-Tulsi journalist I confronted. They’re all a bunch of dishonest propagandists, and I was very angry about this for a while.
Tulsi’s record is even stronger than Hillary’s.
Money Tulsi Gabbard has received from the Russians: None.
Money the Clintons have personally received (not including donations to their foundation) from Russian Oligarchs/Corporations: At least a half a million dollars… for one speaking engagement alone.
Tulsi Gabbard supported legislation for cyber defense. The Obama-Hillary administration consistently failed to enact these measures, in spite of being aware of the threats.
When Russia invaded Ukraine, and diplomacy failed to resolved the issue, Tulsi said we should bolster the defenses of Ukraine and Eastern Europe.
How Hillary has responded to Russian expansionism: Investigate whether the Devil (the US) made them do it.
Tulsi has been working to secure our elections.
Wanna see something really shady? About our #ElectionSecurity? Who is this woman? And why has she been working so hard, for two fricken years, to block Tulsi's paper ballot bill? https://t.co/jU73Fny4FW

Tulsi is often accused, without evidence, of cozying up to Putin. But Hillary is the one who sleeps at Putin’s private country home when she visits Russia.
So… I dunno, man… who do you think the nesting doll fits?
What, exactly, is Tulsi Gabbard up to?
She’s trying to prevent this from happening again:
She is demanding real debates, poll transparency, campaign finance reform (even banning PACS), an end to corporate civil rights, abolishment of superdelegates, restoration of the Fairness Doctrine, and secure elections.
Tulsi Gabbard has been working to end party corruption since 2016, and is working hard to ensure free and fair elections in America.
The real question is… what, exactly, is the DNC up to?
