How Tulsi Gabbard Unites Bloodstained Hindu Nationalists, the Genocidal Assad and the U.S. Far Right

This article is so good I don't know where to start.
Let's begin with her alleged opposition to the bloody war in Yemen while supporting India's Modi at the same time:

On the one hand, she condemns the Saudi-U.S. led coalition as complicit in a genocidal war, but she welcomes India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has been called the "man with a massacre on his hands" with open arms.

Let's continue with what her aunt says about her:
Her own aunt, Caroline Sinavaiana Gabbard, has noted her discomfort with this mixed bag of endorsements, in low-key language: Gabbard "has a notably mixed voting record, and associations that veer from certain progressive causes to the apparent courting of strongmen such as Narendra Modi, Bashar al-Assad, and Abdel Fattah el-Sisi (not to mention Trump) - this zigzagging path through positions is vexing."


Let's continue with Russia's YouTube promotion of Gabbard:


And here's Steve Bannon:

Bannon was so impressed with Gabbard as a potential ally that as he brokered a meeting between her and the newly-installed President Donald Trump. Tulsi jumped at the opportunity: in her own words, "I walked out thinking that there may be some opportunity to work with this administration to shift our foreign policy in a more positive, less destructive direction."

Venezuela's Military Backs Maduro

Source: Wall Street Journal

Venezuela’s military threw its support behind embattled President Nicolás Maduro on Thursday, dealing a significant blow to the U.S. effort to back a parallel government and oust the authoritarian leader.

Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino, flanked by the heads of the country’s armed forces, said the military would oppose any effort to remove Mr. Maduro, who began a second, six-year term this month after elections last year that were widely regarded as a sham. He ended his speech with shouts of “Chávez vive,” a reference to the late socialist strongman Hugo Chávez.

Will Trump make it harder for Maduro to be ousted?

I think the best thing for the people of Venezuela is for Nicolas Maduro to step aside.

But is Donald Trump, one of the most unpopular people in the world, Going to make Maduro more sympathetic to the world By yelling at Maduro while not saying a word about Assad, who actually gassed children ?

I don’t know. Maybe the world and the people of Venezuela don’t care about what Trump thinks. What is your opinion?

Can Trump be prevented from entering the House?

It sounds to me like Donald Trump just wants to barge in the house and deliver the State of the Union speech without being invited. Can Nancy Pelosi instruct Security to get him out of there if he tries to pull this off?
How does this work legally?
