COI #169: Tulsi Shills for the War Party, While Thomas Massie Makes a Heroic Stand

by | Sep 28, 2021


On Conflicts of Interest #169, Kyle Anzalone breaks down recent statements from former Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. Despite previous rhetoric against “regime change wars,” Tulsi has called for an expansion of the War on Terror and continues to speak of the need to target “Islamists.” Tulsi lumps multiple diverse Muslim countries together and suggests their religion poses a unique danger to Americans that must be countered with drone warfare, which she presents as the humane option compared to regime change. 

Kyle talks about the smear campaign targeting Rep. Thomas Massie after his heroic vote against funding Israel’s military. Massie is one of only nine members of Congress – and the sole Republican – to vote “no.” The bill, which still has to pass the Senate, will hand Israel $1 billion in US taxdollars to resupply its Iron Dome interceptors, an essential tool for maintaining the Israeli apartheid regime. However, the Israel lobby is targeting Massie with false antisemitism claims. 

Kyle discusses Biden’s speech before the UN General Assembly in New York. The president told several lies, but among the biggest whoppers were claims that he does not seek a Cold War with China, and that the US is not at war for the first time in 20 years. In reality, US forces have bombed Syria in the past week, continue to occupy Iraq, and are waging drone wars from Niger to Pakistan. While Biden maintained he doesn’t want a Cold War with China, his Air Force Secretary Frank Kendell has nonetheless pushed to weaponize space to counter China, while other military leaders speak obsessively about the need to confront Beijing.
