Nikki Haley Embodies What’s
Wrong with the Republican Party

Original Article

Posted By: Harlowe, 11/12/2019 3:36:51 PM

In January, 2016, Nikki Haley, who was then the first female governor of South Carolina, delivered the Republican response to Barack Obama’s final State of the Union address. She dutifully criticized the two-term President, trotting out a few G.O.P. talking points on the national debt, health-care reform, and the threat of terrorism. (Snip) When the interviewer, Norah O’Donnell, asked whether Trump would ultimately be impeached and removed from office, Haley’s reply was entirely dismissive. “No. On what?” she said. “You’re gonna impeach a President for asking for a favor that didn’t happen

The half-blind writer of this garbage suggests that Trump should be impeached for, among other things, "Threatening to abandon a vulnerable ally to the mercy of Vladimir Putin’s Russia." Huh? When Putin invaded the Crimea, the Ukrainians begged for help, and Obama sent them meals-ready-to-eat and other non-lethal aid. Did this writer or the dems demand Obie's impeachment?

Nikki speaks with a fork tongue. She is sucking up to Trump so if he wins in 2020 he will dump Pence. Don't trust this woman she got rid of southern flags and statues un-American.

As governor of South Carolina, she took down the Confederate flag that had flown for over a hundred years. Had a liberal democrat discarded the history of that state in an act of feel-good warm fuzzy, I would understand. But I was surprised that a Republican governor would do this. I could not vote for Nikki--she is not genuine.

Hmm. I wonder where the rest of my post #3 went? I violated one of my guidelines, which is "never bother with ANY publication with any form of New York in the title. It is a good guideline, the author is full of beans and Haley is correct. Read the transcript. Nothing out of line was said.

I didn't know the President discussed Hillary on that phone call , maybe John knows something the rest of us don't know. Perhaps John is thinking of the Crowdstrike what in the world would that have to do with Hillary ?? I think the President has every right to inquire about the Bidens , the money that coke head received indirectly came out of our pockets. Kinda like laundering dontcha think ? The Ukraine was a cash cow for a number of democrat crooks and I wouldn't be surprised if schifty wasn't one of the key benefactors.

I know i am in the minority on this but i think every statue and plaque commemorating the Confederacy, along with its flag should have been taken down and discarded fifty years ago as part of a Republican initiative to get rid of all vestiges of the war the South fought to keep slavery. All that nonsense was to make the democrat southerners feel like they were noble in defeat and with it came Jim Crow, lynchings and the KKK.

No one person can embody all that is wrong with the GOP. When you consider the overlapping, intertwining vines and tendrils of Washington corruption, looking for individual villains is a parlor game. It's a culture of corruption, a universe of corruption in which we all play a role. .

If you are paying attention to the Washington circus that is the impeachment inquiry into President Trump's handling of the much maligned Ukraine call, this is what real collusion looks like: a media largely committed to advancing the goal of Democrats to severely damage or remove him from office, a series of at first private testimonies by people who appear to have similar motives and connections to Democrats and/or anti-Trump forces, and now a new book by "Anonymous," which claims the president has a bad attitude and is difficult to work with. Where to start? "Anonymous" is a self-admitted coward.

The court already ruled against Oberlin College’s attempt to unseal the records of a Gibson family member who wasn’t a party and didn’t testify.

The smear campaign against Gibson’s Bakery continues in interview during CBS Sunday Morning segment about the case. One of the most disturbing aspects of the Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College case has been the almost obsessive demonization of Gibson’s Bakery and its owners by the college. It started not just during the protests and pre-litigation interactions that gave rise to the lawsuit, but in the Answer filed by the defendants in response to the lawsuit. (Snip) Oberlin and Raimondo seek to portray the College as the victim in this scenario, including the confessed shoplifters. I can’t imagine, based on what is publicly available, this will work.

She wants to be vice president. She wants to be vice president on the Republican ticket in 2020,” Schmidt stated.

She says she told him that his constant bashing of the media was tiresome. “Why are you doing it?” she says she asked him. According to Stahl, (he) responded with this: “I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so when you write negative stories about me no one will believe you.”
