Matt Schlapp confirmed on social media, on Monday, that a former Democrat Presidential candidate, who is also a former Democrat US House of Representative from Hawaii is speaking at the largest gathering of Republican Conservatives called CPAC- later in February.
Gabbard is a Lt. Col. in the Army Reserve and has been embroiled in battle, perhaps for the soul of the Democrat Party, with former Presidential candidate Hillary R. Clinton- and Gabbard is also outspoken in her rejection of Joe Biden’s foreign policies.
Clinton is facing scrutiny for her active role in what could possibly be the biggest scandal in American History, so it is an interesting time to hear from Gabbard.

The news went viral on Twitter on Monday, due to the controversy Gabbard’s appearance is expected to cause and the all-Republican gathering.
Rolling Stone Magazine had a temper tantrum over Gabbard’s scheduled appearance, reporting:
Tulsi Gabbard, the former Hawaii congresswoman who sought the 2020 Democratic nomination for president, is completing her metamorphosis from iconoclast progressive to hardcore conservative by appearing as a featured guest at the Trumpy love-in known as the Conservative Political Action Conference.
CPAC 2022 begins Wednesday in Orlando, where Gabbard will join a roster of GOP loyalists — including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Republican senators Ted Cruz, Rick Scott and Marco Rubio, and Representatives Matt Gaetz, Jim Jordan, Lauren Boebert, Madison Cawthorn and Marjorie Taylor Greene — in building buzz for the star of the circus, former President Donald Trump.
According to the conference agenda, Gabbard will appear at the Friday night “Ronald Reagan Dinner,” where the keynote speaker is the former Fox News star conspiracy theorist Glenn Beck.
Most recently, on her Twitter timeline, Gabbard, who does not support needless wars, was decrying Biden’s approach to a Russia-US/Ukraine conflict saying that a shooting war will escalate quickly and place lives in danger.
Gabbard warned politicians about her concerns for Nuclear war, something the Democrats used to care a great deal about.
…likelihood of the conflict going nuclear (accidentally or intentionally). And what for? To supposedly protect a “democracy” that really isn’t a democracy; to distract from domestic failures/show how tough Biden is. Biden can prevent war, but I fear he lacks the courage to do so

The Daily Beast was pouting over Gabbard’s anticipated anti-war speech on a highly elevated platform, as she will speak CPAC’s Regan Dinner.
“While it may seem unusual for a Democratic politician to headline such an event, Gabbard has long cultivated a conservative following by repeatedly railing against the Biden administration and elements of her own party’s agenda, particularly on foreign policy and culture-war matters.”
Newsweek pointed out that Gabbard is not the first Democrat to speak at CPAC:
“While it’s uncommon for a Democrat to speak at CPAC, Gabbard’s appearance isn’t a complete shock given her criticism of President Joe Biden, and at least three other Democrats have spoken at the conference.
Former Bill Clinton adviser Paul Begala spoke at CPAC in 2013. During a debate with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Begala expressed the hope that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would run for president and said she would be a “great” choice.
MIC.com had a mind on revenge against Gabbard- for dating to speak about not causing needless wars to promote political idols:
Former Democratic congresswoman and dark horse candidate for her party’s 2020 presidential nomination Tulsi Gabbard is poised to make her re-entry into politics next week with a much hyped appearance at the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference — the annual who’s-who event for the wholly unhinged lunatic fringe of the Republican party to mingle with their more respectable (that is: less flamboyantly fascistic) right wing brethren.
