    Nikki Haley should already be running away with the 2024 GOP nomination as the fresh face of post-Trump conservatism, but instead it looks like she’s falling for the same sucker siren song of the establishment that, over the last few decades, has made failures out of so many promising Republicans, as well as out of Jeb!. If she keeps going the way she’s been going, she’s going to lose this race before it even starts. Sure, the establishment digs her, but can she turn it around and earn the support of actual GOP voters? Yes…if she ditches the GOPe hacks...

    RICHLAND COUNTY, SC S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster on Thursday fired the entire Richland County elections board, three months after the agency failed to count more than 1,000 votes in the 2018 election and a day after a chaotic board meeting that highlighted the agencys dysfunction. South Carolinians confidence in the lawful and professional oversight of elections must never be jeopardized, McMaster said in a news release. The repeated actions and behavior of these officials are wholly unacceptable and cannot be tolerated. To regain and maintain Richland County voters confidence at the ballot box, the entire board must be replaced with...

    By ALEX ISENSTADT 01/18/2019 05:04 AM EST Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Republican Gov. Larry Hogan is acting a lot like a guy who wants to run against Donald Trump in 2020 and the president's reelection team is taking notice. The second-term Maryland governor has been implicitly going after Trump in speeches, meeting with Never Trump Republicans, and planning a March trip to Iowa as vice chair of the National Governors Association. Its all fueling speculation that Hogan, a 62-year-old cancer survivor who coasted to reelection in liberal Maryland and remains one of the most popular governors in...
  • US, Israel exit UN cultural agency, claiming bias [UNESCO]

    The United States and Israel officially quit the U.N.s educational, scientific and cultural agency at the stroke of midnight, the culmination of a process triggered more than a year ago amid concerns that the organization fosters anti-Israel bias. The withdrawal is mainly procedural yet serves a new blow to UNESCO, co-founded by the U.S. after World War II to foster peace. The Trump administration filed its notice to withdraw in October 2017 and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu followed suit. The Paris-based organization has been denounced by its critics as a crucible for anti-Israel bias: blasted for criticizing Israels occupation...

    On its face, Trumps announcement that he is pulling US forces out of Syria seems like an unfriendly act toward Israel. But it isnt. On its face, President Donald Trumps announcement that he is pulling US forces out of Syria seems like an unfriendly act towards Israel. But it isnt. Trumps decision to pull US forces out of Syria is of a piece with outgoing US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haleys address on Tuesday to the UN Security Council regarding the Palestinian conflict with Israel. Both statements reflect the depths of the administrations friendship and support for the State...

    It is safe to say that there are now two main fronts in what we need to term the Islamist War Against the West. The first has been for many years now the Western liberal democracy of Israel surrounded by genocidal neighbors; the second is France, followed closely by other European countries, Australia, and America. During the week of December 11th, 2018, two sad things happened and this essay shall attempt to enlighten by placing them together. The first is the recent terrorist attack in Strasbourg France, and the second is the signing by most of the world (with the...

    Iran on Saturday launched a ballistic missile that can deliver nukes and the near-complete silence of the press aside, its a big deal. The latest test disclosed, once more, the flaws in the Iranian nuclear deal and the confusion of our European allies, who are alarmed by the mullahs behavior but fear losing the deal that enables it. The Iranian regime has just test-fired a medium range ballistic missile thats capable of carrying multiple warheads, Secretary of State Pompeo tweeted Sunday, adding: This test violates UNSCR 2231 the United Nations Security Council resolution that made the nuclear deal...
  • U.S. fails to win enough support at U.N. to condemn Hamas

    Al-Reuters ^ | December 6, 2018 6:47 PM | Michelle Nichols
    A U.S. attempt to get the United Nations to condemn violence by Palestinian militant group Hamas for the first time failed on Thursday because the draft resolution fell short of votes needed in the General Assembly. The resolution required two-thirds support and while Assembly resolutions are non-binding, they can carry political weight. The U.S. text received 87 votes in favor, 58 against, 32 abstentions and 16 countries did not vote. In an earlier procedural move requested by Kuwait, the 193-member body narrowly voted to require two-thirds support and not a simple majority for adoption of the draft resolution. Outgoing U.S....

    With Nikki Haley stepping down as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations at the end of the year, President Donald Trump is reportedly considering former Michigan Senate candidate and Iraq War veteran John James to fill the post, according to Bloomberg. Haley surprisingly announced her resignation in early October, possibly to pursue greater income opportunities in the private sector. Trump praised Haleys service at the time, and said there were many names of potential replacements to consider. Who is John James? James ran for Senate in Michigan, losing 52 percent to 46 percent against Democratic incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow....

    Russia over the weekend mounted its most serious aggression against Ukraine since President Trump took office, and America punted. Trumps outgoing ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, described the chain of events that led to the current standoff at the Black Sea as an outrageous violation of sovereign Ukrainian territory. She vowed that Washington and its friends would stand with Kiev. So whats the plan? It is our expectation that our European partners will lead this effort through the Normandy Four format, Haley said, referring to a toothless Barack Obama-era gabfest that has mostly served to legitimize Moscows illegal...

    Europe must get a handle on immigration to combat a growing threat from rightwing populists, Hillary Clinton has said, calling on the continents leaders to send out a stronger signal showing they are not going to be able to continue provide refuge and support. In an interview with the Guardian, the former Democratic presidential candidate praised the generosity shown by the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, but suggested immigration was inflaming voters and contributed to the election of Donald Trump and Britains vote to leave the EU. I think Europe needs to get a handle on migration because that is what...

    Republicans, independents, and even many Democrats approve of her, and the Constitution allows the House to select a non-member . . . Next months election could deliver a close enough result that it will be very difficult for the House of Representatives to organize itself and elect a speaker. If the House deadlocks, the Constitution allows the body to select a non-member to serve as speaker and run the place. Its never happened before, but at the beginning of this century, few thought figures such as Barack Obama or Donald Trump could ever be elected president. On Capitol Hill, there...

    Since Donald Trump won the presidency, he has presided over both one the most tumultuous political times in recent memory, as well as the best economy the country has seen since well before the financial crisis. Consumer and small business confidence is up but so are both the national debt and budget deficit. The chart below, using mostly data compiled by Goldman Sachs, quantifies just how much things changed from the days just before the election in November 2016 through September 2018. Of course, the stock market has weakened in October, which has been its historically most volatile month....

    PDF We have both had the privilege of heading the Office of the Solicitor General during different administrations. We may have different ideas about the ideal candidate in the next presidential election, but we agree on one important principle: voters should be able to choose from all constitutionally eligible candidates, free from spurious arguments that a U.S. citizen at birth is somehow not constitutionally eligible to serve as President simply because he was delivered at a hospital abroad. The Constitution directly addresses the minimum qualifications necessary to serve as President. In addition to requiring thirty-five years of age and fourteen...

    UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, whose parents immigrated to the United States from India, took a swipe at Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren during a speech Thursday night. "I get it. You wanted an Indian woman, but Elizabeth Warren failed her DNA test," Haley said in jest at the annual Al Smith Dinner, where speakers are known for roasts. "Actually, when the President found out that I was Indian-American, he asked if I was from the same tribe as Elizabeth Warren." Haley also poked fun at herself, took on convicted felon Paul Manafort and lamented being a conservative in New York City....
