Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) dug himself a deep hole when he made one nasty accusation against former Hawaii Congresswoman and 2020 presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard.
But Gabbard just went back to Congress to get her sweet revenge.
And her take-down of the Utah RINO was brilliant.
Over the past few years RINOs and Democrats have circled their wagons to protect the Washington, D.C. political establishment.
The result is an unprecedented crack down on free speech in America.
But former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard just tore into Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) and what she had to say was painfully true.
Gabbard, a longtime Democrat, announced she was leaving her party last year thanks to the unhinged leftists who are driving the political organization off a cliff.
While she identifies as an Independent, Gabbard threw her support behind several Republicans in the midterm elections.
Even before she realized the Democrats were such a hot mess she could no longer stand to be associated with them, Gabbard was drawing the ire of everyone from Hillary Clinton to Mitt Romney.
Back in March of last year Romney accused Gabbard of telling “treasonous lies” after she questioned whether Ukraine contains US biolabs.
Tulsi Gabbard is parroting false Russian propaganda. Her treasonous lies may well cost lives.

Establishment politicians instantly melted down and did their best to muzzle Gabbard instantly.
She sent a legal cease and desist letter to the Senator in April, but that wasn’t near as satisfying as her recent 16 minutes in the spotlight testifying before a Congressional Committee.
Gabbard was among the first people who were called to testify before the GOP’s new select subcommittee digging into the weaponization of the federal government.
During her 16 minutes on the stand, Gabbard called Romney and others for their attacks on free speech anytime someone dares to speak up against the entrenched establishment agenda.
“Recently, US Senator Mitt Romney accused me of treason. A crime that is punishable by death under our laws. I challenged him to back this serious allegation up with evidence,” Gabbard began. “What was this based on? There was no response. No explanation, no evidence and certainly no apology.”

“Now, these accusations are often shrugged off as well. Hey, it’s politics. People say things about each other all the time,” she continued. “That may be easy for some of you to say but for somebody who wears the uniform, this is serious. And it’s serious, not only to me, but to my fellow service members, and veterans, every one of us making a decision at some point in our lives to raise our right hand prepared and volunteering to lay our life down for this country.”
Gabbard, who has put in her time inside war zones, both in Iraq and Kuwait, explained that she and other members of the military not only faced possible death, but watched others sacrifice everything to protect American freedom.
“This is much bigger than me or any one individual when those who dare to challenge the establishment are targeted by this powerful conglomerate of government corporate media and big tech weaponizing all that they have against the people for their own selfish gain as a dangerous chilling effect on free speech, and it sends a very powerful message,” she added. “If you dare to challenge us. We will come after you.”
She then launched into exactly what RINOs and leftist establishment types are sacrificing every time they prioritize their partisan agenda over protecting the Constitution.
“The more we allow this to happen. We start looking less and less like a democratic republic, and more and more like a banana republic. Instead of a government ordained to secure these rights,” Gabbard said. “We are now increasingly facing a government determined to take those rights away.”
Partly addressing a hate speech bill before Congress, Gabbard explained that it is essential for Congress to protect the speech of everyone—including those they don’t want to hear from.
“George Washington warned for ‘if men are to be precluded from offering their sentiments on a matter which may involve the most serious and alarming consequences that can invite the consideration of mankind, reason is of no use to us. The freedom of speech may be taken away and dumb and silent. We may be led like sheep to slaughter,’” she reminded the committee. “We have to stop this insanity and protect these sacred freedoms, vanquish the fear and self-censorship that is now pervasive.”
“Every one of us taking action to breathe new life into the open marketplace of ideas that is at the heart of a thriving democracy, encouraging vigorous and substantive debate, encouraging people to think for themselves so we can draw our own conclusions where we can disagree without devolving into hate,” she argued.
“We can respect each other as fellow Americans and treat each other with aloha. The work you have before you is critical,” she concluded. “For all of these reasons, the stakes are high, the consequences for better or worse, will be long lasting. For the sake of the American people, our freedom and the future of this country we love, I pray we can set aside our partisan differences and commit to standing together to defend the constitutional right of every American to live free.”
Government isn't the arbiter of what can or cannot be said, who can speak, or who can worship!

The fact that Gabbard is one of the Washington, D.C. Swamp’s biggest targets to shut down and silence is all anyone needs to know about the current state of this country.
Americans can only hope the voices supporting freedom will drown out the powerful elites trying to ensure they take over this country by shutting down every dissenting voice.
