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?????

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.

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.

NAFTA Round #4 negotiations have been ongoing and resulting in little progress on the serious issues surrounding the three nation trade pact. Word from behind the scenes, and off-the-record, finds several insiders with the opinion that the decision by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce lobbying group to conflict with President Trump and the U.S. trade team has backfired. U.S. CoC President Tom Donohue made the decision to align in common cause with Canada and Mexico, against the interests of the U.S., and go public with his attacks against the U.S. negotiating team, the administration and President Trump personally.

In a military courtroom in Ft. Bragg, North Carolina on Monday, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl pleaded guilty to charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy and faces up to life in prison. Back in 2014, President Obama traded five dangerous terrorists to get Bergdahl back. And in a flawed political calculation, the administration championed him as a ´hero.´ But considering the massive blowback that followed the ill-advised move, the Big Three Networks omitted that from their Monday evening reports. Following the trade, Obama held a flashy press conference in the White House Rose Garden with Bergdahl’s parents to commend the

The American soldier President Obama portrayed as a heroic POW of the Taliban and traded five jailed Taliban leaders for his release now looks more like the man President Trump called a “no-good traitor” who should “have been executed.” On Monday, Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl admitted deserting his Afghan post as well as misbehaving before the enemy and endangering fellow troops, confirming the betrayal several veterans who served alongside him have alleged for years. Though capital punishment is not in the offing, he does face life in prison at his sentencing later this month. Bergdahl’s plea sets up a pre-sentence trial

Henry McMaster, who Trump endorsed at a private fundraiser. Interstates and airways were closed during rush hour as Air Force One landed at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport at 5:21 p.m. Three hours later, it lifted off again, headed back to Joint Base Andrews near Washington, D.C. In between, Trump stopped to greet about 100 pre-screened supporters who gathered near the tarmac at GSP, then was whisked away by motorcade to

Democrats are attacking President Trump for “dismantling” President Obama’s legacy on everything from Obamacare subsidies to immigration amnesty, but nobody knew better than Mr. Obama how vulnerable his go-it-alone agenda would be if Mr. Trump won the election. Unable to work with a Republican-led Congress for most of his presidency, Mr. Obama did what he could with his presidential “pen and phone,” issuing executive orders, rules and regulations that in many cases could be overturned by another stroke of the pen — this time by a Republican president. Long before Mr. Obama left office, Republicans were accusing him of overreaching

You might not know it from the lack of mainstream media coverage, but longtime Democratic Congressman Bob Menendez is still on trial in New Jersey on charges that he engaged in a pay-to-play scheme with one of his top donors. Last week, federal prosecutors rested their case against Meneendez, after presenting weeks of evidence connecting the Democratic lawmaker to a Fort Lauderdale doctor named Salomon Melgen. According to the government´s attorneys, Menendez communicated frequently with Melgen, using his influence with the State Department and Medicare fraud investigators, to do a variety of favors for Melgen.

The number of foreign workers getting work permits for U.S. jobs will hit 2 million this year, partly because President Donald Trump’s deputies have reduced only a few of President Barack Obama’s foreign-worker programs and policies. Roughly 2 million foreigners will get temporary work permits, dubbed “Employment Authorization Documents,” or EADS, during 2017, despite administration efforts to cut back some of the many business-backed foreign-worker programs, according to two sets of data released by the Department of Homeland Security. “This is almost entirely outside of our legal immigration and legal guest-worker system — these are additional workers,” said Jessica Vaughan,

When asked by Chuck Todd — host of NBC´s "Meet The Press" — if he was going to run in 2020 against Trump, Kasich demurred. "I don´t know what I´m going to do tomorrow," he said. "I will tell you this — the other day, my wife said to me one morning, ´You know, John, I wish you were the president.´ That´s how I knew the country was in trouble."

Hillary Clinton slammed what she called "endemic" sexism and misogyny in America during an interview with Fareed Zakaria, which aired Sunday. Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn´t highlighted her career history of fighting for women´s rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so. "I´m a middle-class girl from the middle of the country, and so I always struggled with like, OK, so what´s my story. And it suddenly dawned on me that

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted “half-baked, spurious nationalism” in the United States in an emotional speech Monday night after receiving the National Constitution Center’s Liberty Medal. “To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ´the last best hope of earth´ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of

New York activist Tamika Mallory says she was booted from an American Airlines flight in Miami after a pilot inserted himself into a dispute over her seat assignment. Mallory, a co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington, was traveling home to New York when the pilot followed her to scold her over an argument she had with a gate agent. He then had her summoned from her seat and kicked off the flight, she told the Daily News. “It definitely was white male aggression. I was singled out, I was disrespected, and he was trying to intimidate me. I was

Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended NFL players who knelt during the national anthem, saying kneeling is a “reverent” position that is not against “our anthem or our flag.” The former Democratic presidential candidate, who was at the Southbank Centre´s London Literature Festival, urged Democrats to use the issue against President Trump. Clinton was embarking on a foreign trip to promote her book “What Happened.” She said people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base, pointing to the example of kneeling NFL players. “That´s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to

If the NFL thought Americans would ease the backlash against the league — they were sadly mistaken. Photos of empty stadiums from around the league show how dire a situation kneelers have spurred. (Photo) Breitbart News reports: Note, that the Jets played New England on Sunday, meaning there should have been a big crowd for that game. The Texans, Atlanta, and Baltimore are also very relevant teams with relatively loyal fan bases. Yet, thousands upon thousands of fans no-showed or didn’t buy tickets for those games.

A worker at a Texas fast-food restaurant was fired after she refused to serve two police officers, the company said Saturday. In a lengthy post on the Denison Police Department´s Facebook page, Chief Jay Burch alleged the officers were cursed at by the employee and that the restaurant manager’s only response was “I don’t get into politics.” “If a business does not want police officers as customers, just let us know,” Burch wrote. “There’s no need to curse us and make a scene, just let us know you don’t want us there and we’ll go somewhere else.” He added, "Now going

Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance under the collective bargaining agreement for collusion against NFL team owners, reports Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report. Kaepernick has hired high-profile attorney Mark Geragos and is preparing to release a statement about his grievance soon, added Freeman. The free-agent quarterback has remained unemployed since his release by the San Francisco 49ers in March and has garnered little interest from teams around the league. This has caused some to suggest he´s being blackballed for his national anthem protests during the 2016 season. Kaepernick appeared in 12 games for 49ers in 2016, throwing for 2,241 yards with

The Clinton Foundation told DailyMail.com it will not return as much as $250,000 in donations from Harvey Weinstein, saying on Sunday the money had already been spent on the organization’s programs and used for charitable purposes. The foundation’s decision comes as politicians and philanthropic groups grapple with whether to return donations they have received from Weinstein, after numerous women stepped forward this month to accuse the movie mogul of sexual assault, harassment and rape. Over a dozen Democratic politicians have said they will give back or donate Weinstein’s campaign contributions to charity. The Clinton Foundation faced questions about Weinstein’s funding after Hillary Clinton
