Expressing concerns that the U.S. is heading toward becoming a police state, former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, ripped Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and former CIA Director John Brennan, saying they are acting like “domestic enemies” who pose a greater danger to the country than the rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol Building on Jan. 6.
In a video shared online, the former Democratic presidential candidate was clear that those protesters “were behaving like domestic enemies of our country.”
However, Gabbard then spoke of a “much more powerful, and therefore dangerous” threat.
“But let’s be clear, the John Brennans, Adam Schiffs, and the oligarchs in Big Tech, who are trying to undermine our constitutionally-protected rights and turn our country into a police state with KGB-style ‘surveillance’ are also domestic enemies — and much more powerful, and therefore dangerous, than the mob which stormed the Capitol.”

Blasting the disgraceful former CIA director who now plies his trade on MSNBC, Gabbard stressed he was advocating for the U.S. government to move on American citizens, whom he described as “religious extremists, authoritarians, fascists, bigots, racists, nativists, even libertarians.”
Gabbard appealed to President Joe Biden and both parties to denounce these efforts by Brennan and others “to take away our civil liberties that are endowed to us by our Creator and guaranteed in our Constitution.”
Appearing on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Gabbard would double down on her concerns about Brennan and a coming police state.

Noting that members of the military and elected officials take an oath and swear to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, Gabbard said this is because “our Constitution is the foundation of this country and who we are. It is what guarantees us our civil liberties, our freedoms that are endowed to us not by any man or person in government, but are endowed to us by our Creator.”
Again, the former congresswoman denounced the protesters who stormed the Capitol, insisting that “they were acting as domestic terrorists undermining our Constitution.”
But they are not the only danger we face, she reiterated.
“As you pointed out in my video, those like John Brennan, Adam Schiff and others are also acting as domestic terrorists because they are also undermining our Constitution by trying to take away our civil liberties and rights that are guaranteed to us,” Gabbard told host Tucker Carlson.
After quoting Brennan’s words seen in her video, Gabbard added, “This is the extent that they are going to try to undermine the rights and freedoms that are guaranteed to every one of us and it’s incredibly dangerous.”
Here’s a quick sampling of online responses to the story that show people appreciate Gabbard’s unabashed leadership:
America would have been in a lot better hands if Biden had nominated you for VP instead of far left Kamala Harris

Tulsi, although I don’t always agree with your policies, it is statements like this that make me have a hell of a lot of respect for you. During the primary you were the only adult on the stage and it’s a crying shame that your party cares more for spectacle than solutions.

Great effort but you should know by now your words will fall on deaf ears. They have their agenda, and no pleas will alter it’s course. Biden is not even in charge. He doesn’t have the mental capacity and probably doesn’t even check his emails. He just signs what he’s told.

I couldn’t agree with you more. This is a slippery slope and threatens American democracy. I am hopeful that there are others who have the foresight that u do regarding this. Thank u for your service to this country, both in congress and in the military. I hope you run again!

Here’s a real leader. Nothing could be more true about the Oligarchs in America. Establishment cronies like Brennan calling Libertarians a threat? My god, as CIA Director this man lied professionally, for a living. They need to be outed. 🤮 https://t.co/mVwAsRqHK4
