Nikki Haley for the First Woman President
P. J. Media, by Roger L. Simon

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/13/2017 3:42:36 AM

I know it ´s premature, since I predicted (and I stand by it) that Donald Trump would win reelection handily in 2020, but more and more I am convinced that Nikki Haley should be our first woman president. And this is not just a reaction to the recent publication of Hillary Clinton´s new book What Happened in which Mrs. Clinton apparently details precisely the opposite, blaming everyone and everything for her defeat from Bernie Sanders to the "late eclipses of the sun and moon," except for herself. I say "apparently" because I am less likely actually to read her book

See, that´s the problem. All that "identity" crap. I do not give a flip what the gender is of the candidate. I just want the best person for the job. Can we please just stop with this "First ´what ever´ for Prez? We´re not trying to make a Guinness World Record here. We´re trying to save a nation and a people.

I liked her really well before her capitulation on the flag situation. Lost a lot of respect for her after that. If the primaries were today (thankfully they are not) she would not be near the top of my list.
She does have beautiful hair, I´ll grant that.

She was born to parents who were Green Card holders at the time. Not full fledged US citizens. Unless the SCOTUS specifically rules that this is the same as a Natural Born Citizen, no go. Besides, Sarah is still the best choice. She should challenge RINO Murkowski and enter the Senate in ´18.

Can´t Roger that. Nikki can´t get my vote. She was the FIRST South Carolina Governor to trash the Confederate flag, and South Carolina was the first state to secede. Her sense of identity politics was a FIRST for a republican.
I don´t know what President Trump saw in her to offer her a job, but at least he sent her to a meaningless position that requires no management skills at a meaningless organization. I will never vote for her.

Since we´re on the topic of ´identity politics´ I´ll just add, she´s not black enough. If she were nominated I think at my old age that I´ll just ´sit this one out´ for lack of interest because Republicans are still working hard to lose.

Nikki is busy filling out her resume she is not impressing anyone. Her spewing comments off the top of her head could cause WW3. If she ever became President is she going to take down our American Flag?

Question where is her husband?????

This won´t help her.....

More about the relationship

Haley is a married woman. She married to Michael Haley in 1996 after they met at Clemson University and they have two kids daughter Rena and son Nalin. However, in 2010, blogger and former Haley campaign advisor Will Folks released a statement to a local anti-Haley conservative group in which he alleged that he and Governor Haley had an affair. Moreover, Larry Marchant has also claimed that he had a one-night stand with Haley. Later, she denied it.

I could see her as president.
Is she perfect on all issues? No. No one is.
But she would be a heck of a lot better than any Democrat.
Let´s not overlook the good in searching for the perfect. We conservatives do that too often.
And - I like the way she speaks at the UN.

Must agree with many of the above posters...

1. She lost my support and respect when she appeased the SC Left over the Confederate flag.

2. She had no vision to see the dire necessity to join the Trump Train for America.

3. She is not a Natural Born citizen, where both parents are US citizens when child is born.

It´s no coincidence these three reasons are interconnected to the Founding Fathers´ wisdom of the NBC requirement for POTUS and VP. "It was for loyalty and fidelity" to USA. Had she studied SC and US history at her parents´ knees, to grow her love and understanding of the unique qualities of America, she never would have appeased the SC left, who also cared even less for SC´s rich history regarding states´ rights.

I hope the Pubbies aren´t on the ´Any Woman For President´ train too. If I vote for her, it won´t be because she is female, but as always, the alternative is worse.

She was among the first to order the Confederate flags removed.

All I gotta say is this.

If ANY woman is elected president other than Hillary, it will take the wind right out of her sails. Do you think she would fight this hard to become the second woman President?

I just read she was planning on wearing white at her acceptance speech, in honor of the suffregettes. She was going to be the capstone on the Women´s Lib movement.

I really hopes she lives to see some other woman elected and the cherry on top would be to see it be a Republican woman.

I don´t think the writer is necessarily advocating an affirmative action campaign. But he recognizes that sooner or later we will have a woman president, and that in his view Haley would be a good one.

I like what I´ve seen of her for the most part. So she didn´t back Trump early on - so what? The relevant point to me is that Trump saw something worthwhile in her, and his judgement has proven out. IMO Haley has done a great job at the U.N.

I don´t know much about her governorship. What sort of judges did she nominate for state court positions? THAT would be the key indicator for me.

As far as the flag thing goes, I think it´s all overdone in some quarters. We forget that Haley didn´t act on her own or in a vacuum. She was reacting to and navigating through a unique political climate created by an unspeakably atrocious act which came from out of the blue.

I noticed that republicans are already on the path to mucking up the next elections before mucking up the last election is finished. It´s what republicans do best. We talk too much. We conjecture and debate too much. Too much of it results in timidity and the inability to succeed once we "win".

We have been informed time and time again by the honest and investigative MSM that females who are Republican aren´t really women. Just as they´ve informed us that negroes who are Republican aren´t really black. I think we should take the honest and investigative MSM at its word and accept the fact that this Haley person is a misogynistic racist, not a woman.

Need more evidence? The honest and investigative MSM also informed us that Trump hates women, so seriously, do you think he´d actually go and appoint one, to anything? Checkmate!

so, with some posters it´s okay that Palin was also rumored to have had an affair, and Trump had plenty of marital issues, but Haley has to be a saint? Pretty hypocritical. As for Palin, she has as much of a chance being president as Hillary does. Most of you believe that Trump will get another term, so it´s absurd to even talk about the next president. Even three years can be a lifetime.

Haley got the ball rolling on our national quest to tear down flags and monuments. It was OK when Confederate statues were coming down, but now they´re going for Jefferson and other Founders, Christopher Columbus, and who knows who´s next. I will, with clear conscience, vote third party if ever she runs for office.

I like Haley and think that she would make good president NOT because she is a woman, but because she is a manager having been a governor and is now performing brilliantly on the international stage. These are qualities that a man or woman should have to become president. I didn´t like the flag thing when she was governor, but I don´t like everything Trump is doing either.

Bringing us to the "misogynist" Trump. Trump knows talent and even though Haley dissed him seriously during the campaign she was one of his first hires. As another poster said kudos for both of their professionalism and love for country to put aside their differences and work together.

And I suspect Trump did not hire Haley because she was a woman. She was the best PERSON to do the job and the reason she should be considered seriously as a future president.

But, the Dems and MSM will never allow a minority Republican to be the first woman president. They will destroy Haley as they did with Judge Miguel Estrada who would have become the first Hispanic Supreme Court justice.

IMO Haley did the right thing under circumstances she never sought.

Being governor of ALL the people of 21st century South Carolina is a good deal more challenging than it was to be a Mighty Whitey confederate cheerleader back in the day when blacks were not even allowed to vote. Haley understood that times have changed, and that is to her credit.

Yesterday, I saw Senator Coons, Democrat from Delaware say he couldn’t vote for the Graham Cassidy healthcare replacement bill because it didn’t have a clear definition of adequate and affordable for those with preexisting conditions. What a joke! The Affordable Care act (ACA) was an over 2,000 page bill (that most hadn’t read when they voted on it) with massive numbers of mandates and twenty new taxes and I don’t recall Democrats asking for definitions let alone on subjective terms like adequate and affordable.

Many members of the national media hate President Trump so much that they´ll even defend North Korea if it keeps them consistent in their opposition to everything he does. After Trump said at the United Nations General Assembly this week that the U.S. would crush the little Asian country should Kim Jong Un attack the U.S. or our allies, reporters and commentators reacted as if he had just threatened Switzerland on a whimsy. Trump had simply said that the U.S. "has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is growing in popularity on America’s political left-wing as the despot engages in a war of words with President Trump. Progressives have shown an increasing willingness to embrace the brutal dictator as a means of attacking Trump, and some in the media have given the brutal dictator friendly, celebrity-like coverage. Left-wing activists, meanwhile, are eagerly spreading pro-North Korea propaganda and making excuses for the dictator’s murderous activities. Un’s public attacks on Trump on Tuesday prompted praise for the dictator by some in the media. Washington Post columnist Petula Dvorak fawned over Un in a column

“Americans continue to cite dissatisfaction with government above all others as the United States’ top problem,” reports Gallup polling analyst Megan Brenan, citing a new survey from the pollster that places the faulty government in first place. In second place: concern over racial tensions in the nation, followed by immigration and the lack of unity in America. Some worries had equal weight. The state of health care, the economy and North Korean threats were tied for fifth place, followed by unemployment, the moral decline of the nation and natural disaster relief — all tied for sixth place.

The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) after he said he would oppose the latest ObamaCare repeal bill, which narrows the chance that Republicans can get the legislation to President Trump’s desk. “John McCain shows the same courage in Congress that he showed when he was a naval aviator,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said an hour after McCain’s statement. “I have assured Senator McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process.” McCain is the second Republican, after Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), to announce

If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by

A new fifth grade teacher at Canopy Oaks Elementary is asking students to use gender-neutral pronouns in the classroom. Math and science teacher Chloe Bressack sent the request home in a letter to parents headlined "About Mx. Bressack." “... my pronouns are ´they, them, their´ instead of ´he, his, she, hers.´ I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural,” the letter reads, “but students catch on pretty quickly.” The letter also asks that students use “Mx.," (pronounced ´Mix´) when addressing the teacher rather than Mr. or Ms. The note alarmed some parents. In a post written Tuesday night in the Facebook group

ABC has greenlit a new sitcom tentatively titled "Sanctuary Family" about an undocumented family living in the U.S. The network says the show will follow the pandemonium that unfolds when a married couple allows their undocumented nanny and her family to live with them. The guests put a strain on the marriage of the host family but they eventually learn that “the differences both families have aren’t as significant as their similarities,” according to the description provided by ABC. Undocumented immigrants are foreign-born people who don’t have a legal right to be or remain in the United States and the

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel used his opening monologue Thursday to once again lambast supporters of the Graham-Cassidy health care bill -- and at one point called a Republican senator from Louisiana an "inbred." The host of ABC´s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has emerged as a strong celebrity advocate for universal health care since his infant son had to undergo open-heart surgery in April. Kimmel made an announcement about his son during a memorable monologue at the time and has taken up the cause ever since. Part of his goal is for every child in the U.S. to have the same access to

Michelle Obama said in a speech Thursday that the White House is currently being led by fear, comparing President Trump´s administration with her husband and former President Obama´s administration. (Snip) “It isn’t just us first,” she said, referring to Trump´s "America first" policies. “We live in a big country and a big world," she said. "You can’t just want to help someone in a hurricane and not make sure they can go to the doctor when they’re sick.” Trump reiterated his "America first" doctrine in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly this week, emphasizing that America would put

Sen. John McCain almost certainly just killed TrumpCare — and gave a boost to managed-care stocks such as UnitedHealth (UNH) and Centene (CNC). The Arizona Republican declared that he couldn´t "in good conscience" vote for the Graham-Cassidy plan to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with block grants to states. John McCain?Verified account @SenJohnMcCain I cannot in good conscience vote for Graham-Cassidy. A bill impacting so many lives deserves a bipartisan approach. The news brought a sudden turnaround in managed-care stocks, though much of that was short-lived. Shares of Centene, whose fortunes are more tied to the ObamaCare exchanges and Medicaid

The San Francisco 49ers Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Rams kicked off in front of a nearly empty stadium. Los Angeles Times reporter Lindsey Thiry tweeted a photo at the time of kickoff, which showed thousands of open seats. In fact, most sections in the photo have more empty seats than fans. (Tweet/Photo/Video) ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that 63,500 tickets had been sold for the game, but of course, simply selling a ticket doesn’t mean the buyer will actually show up to the game. It’s hard to believe there are more than 30,000 people in the stadium, judging

Democratic Rep. John Lewis said Thursday he sometimes feels like “taking a bullwhip” to people in order to make them care about civil rights. “It doesn’t matter whether they’re black, or white, Latino, Asian-American or Native American. When you see something that’s not right, not fair, not just, you have an obligation to do something, to say something. They’re just too darn quiet. I really wanna use some other words sometimes,” Lewis told the audience of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Town Hall on Civil Rights in Washington, D.C. “I believe in the philosophy and the discipline of nonviolence, but sometimes

A team of four current and former NFL players is lobbying commissioner Roger Goodell to engage the league in fighting for the cause of social justice, even asking him to formally designate November as activism awareness month. Current players Michael Bennett (Seattle Seahawks), Torrey Smith (Philadelphia Eagles), and Malcolm Jenkins (Philadelphia Eagles), along with former player Anquan Boldin, sent Goodell and another executive a 2,800-word memorandum in August requesting the league invest significant resources in the cause. The memo, available in full here, is specific and thoughtful, but its requests would almost certainly prove divisive among fans, many of whom are
