Maybe R68 just wants to win. We couldn’t win with a woman in 201y, we won’t win with Harris or Warren and Corey Booker is a schmaltzy showboater. Would a white man have more of a chance of winning? In this day & age, yes. Going for a PoC or a woman will just damn us to losing again.

But hey, we’ll lose with integrity! Because losing with integrity has worked out so well for us. We lost 2 SCOTUS seats that should have been ours.

Win first. That’s the most important thing. Then hire an excavating crew to find and undo the damage Trump has done. But win first. No matter what it takes, and if it takes a white guy, then get a white guy. Trying to score brownie points for people who don’t show up to vote half the time is a losing strategy. I say go with Biden. He can always resign due to health considerations after he wins. Get Biden and a much younger VP? That way the VP can take over. But unfortunately, it can’t be a woman or PoC Vp because the GOP will win by screaming about how Biden will res sign and the VP will practice identity politics and be ultra liberal, turning off independent voters. GOp did a good job demonizing Hillary and Obama. America bought it because America has more racists voters than non racists. Notice I said voters. All well & good for millennials to talk about how open & accepting they are, then they don’t show up at the polls or get an absentee ballot at college.

So if a woman didn't win in 2016 that means a woman will never win ever? Nice logic there. And a "PoC" was handily elected in 2008 and then re-elected in 2012.

"I can’t say enough good things about Jared and Ivanka [Trump]," she said. "Jared is such a hidden genius that no one understands."

Haley gave Kushner credit for renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) deal last week.

"To redo the NAFTA deal the way he did," she said, listing off his accomplishments. "What I’ve done working with him on the Middle East peace plan ... it is so unbelievably well-done."

Kushner, who is married to Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump, has been tasked with forming a Middle East peace plan to resolve tensions between Israel and Palestine.

Haley also called Ivanka Trump a "great friend."

"They do a lot of things behind the scenes that I wish more people knew about," she said. "We’re a better country because they’re in this administration."

Ethical violations? Figures.

by Anonymousreply 12510/09/2018

Andrea Mitchell's hour had an interesting discussion. The UN has become less important to the Trump administration. We are pulling out of a lot of special committees, Including the Human Rights Commission, and we have eliminated or cut significantly important funding for refugees and others. So there is a diminution of involvement by the USA in the UN. Bolton's policies in tandem with Trump. So I doubt Ivanka or Jared would do this. And Ivanka has three little kids and just committed to Washington DC. So I don't believe that Ivanka is a viable option. I'd say no to Jared too. He has a position of power now. He is a Special Advisor in the WH. He isn't going to be Haley's successor. The UN Job has been down graded. With the UN, look for someone who would regard this either as a promotion or as some kind of crowning plum to a distinguished career. Costa said that Nikki has a bit of scandal, controversy coming out and it was suggested it could impact the mid terms so she left ahead of them. But she did say she is waiting until the end of the year. So now everyone is asking why now? Ethics violations? Or to change the subject from Kavanaugh. She doesn't get along with Bolton and Trump's visit to the UN made him a laughing stock. According to sources she had no role in preparing him for thevisit.

Haley had an increasingly diminished role as Pompeo filled the Tillerson vacuum, Bolton asserted himself on UN issues, and the US began withdrawing from key UN institutions/programs, chipping away at her clout.

Haley’s influence at UN was blunted by Trump policy decisions that many other nations opposed, including recognizing Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, cutting aid to Palestinians and announcing a U.S. withdrawal from the U.N. HR Council. Notably, Haley *supported* those moves.

Yes, if only Jared wasn't hidden in such obscurity and poverty, with so little means of communication, maybe the world could glimpse just a hint of his genius. Doubtless like so many of his ilk, his benefit to mankind will be grasped only long after his passing.

However, what with geniuses both stable and hidden at work in the WH, we can rest assured the world is in the safest possible hands. To borrow from JFK, it's clearly the greatest concentration of talent under the WH roof since Jefferson dined alone.

And Trump has trust issues. He would never get rid of them. It wouldn't surprise me if some other people in the White House would like to see Jared and Ivanka gone, but the UN would be a step down for them and they will not give up their power in the WH.

by Anonymousreply 19210/09/2018

One theory investigated by CNN is that Haley is massively in debt and needs a higher salary (from the private sector) to cover her mounting debts:

[quote] CNN: "According to Haley's 2018 financial disclosure, she reported a significant number of outstanding debts, including somewhere between $25,000 and $65,000 in credit cards, a mortgage in excess of $1 million and a line of credit between $250,000 and $500,000.

[quote] With one child in college and another headed there in the next few years, Haley could well have been lured by the 7-figure salaries available to someone with a resume like hers in the private sector.

[quote] Over the weekend, Citizens Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a government ethics watchdog, requested an investigation into Haley's acceptance of seven free flights from South Carolina businessmen in 2017.

Yes, yes, I know it's a regular occurrence in lobby circles - but she was a representative at the UN and the UN might have its own (international) rules against that.

Or perhaps the husband was useless at lobbying / money-making and Haley had to step in herself to fix their mounting debt problem.

by Anonymousreply 19910/09/2018

Whatever the real reason is for Nikki Haley's departure, it must have been the best kept secret in Foggy Bottom. That she publicly offered glowing praise for Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, calling him a “hidden genius,” prompted the fear that Trump might make his son-in-law the new US ambassador to the UN.

Perhaps it's a good exit strategy for Ivanka Trump and her husband, allowing them to return to New York where they feel more at home. But does Kushner believe he's up to the task?

Whatever crap Maggie Haberman puts out about this is the backstory that Trump is peddling.

Nikki probably was told to play along on this one by Trump and she would be taken care of (not investigated, praised in order to procure a good outside job, etc.).

I agree Biden is too old, but a substantial part of his attraction is his charm and his ability to "perform." There is a theatricality to running for office and who ever runs needs to not act like they are in high school debate class, and be all earnest.

The coverage of the Tax fraud is being covered but very selectively. I think they need to figure out how to reduce it to sound bites so people who watch network news like NBC, CBS and ABC will "get it." I guess I should include CNN too. MSNBC, Maddow, etc are covering it.

Swear to gods I want the October surprised to be Mueller indicting Jared, Donnie Jr. and Papa Drumpf a few days before the midterm.

250+ comments with plenty of kind words and no one mentions her vicious anti-gay record?

She was determined to enshrine second class status for the gays in SC’s constitution.

A proud bigot like her has no business taking any leadership role.

CNN's Manu Raju:

"She's going to make a lot of money." -- Trump on Nikki Haley

by Anonymousreply 25710/10/2018

Allegedly Haley has a huge amount of debt that a government job will not payoff. She is likely going to seek (and get) a high paying private jobs for a bit and then make a run for the white house at some point.

[QUOTE]Johnathan Swan from Axios says he does not know the why. He is trying to find out but nothing yet. He says it's rarely what's seen so WTF? He has sources and will keep digging.

Jonathan Swan is a conservative mouthpiece for the administration that almost single-handedly triggered a Constitutional Crisis. He is good for one thing and one thing only: cock-sucking and being a D.C. twink-slayer.

Why so much debt? Her UN job must pay pretty well

by Anonymousreply 26310/10/2018

Wasn’t she a governor before that? She’s got dough

She’s gearing up for 2024. The money she wants to get is for her presidential campaign. She’s going to be quietly visiting billionaires and multi millionaires, promising them legislation based on how much money they give her. She coukd easily live on her money, but she wants mega bucks. Also, how is her marriage nowadays? We know she was fucking around when she was governor. No doubt she wants money to arrange some NDAs.

by Anonymousreply 26410/10/2018

She made roughly $200,00 a year as governor and $180,000 a year for her U.N. job.

by Anonymousreply 26510/10/2018

R265, which is a lot more money in South Carolina than many other parts of the US. Who’s the gambler in this marriage? Nimratha or the husband?

More on the debt.

by Anonymousreply 26710/10/2018

From the state.com:

Gov. Nikki Haley said she is doing "my job to uphold the constitution" by opposing a federal lawsuit that seeks to overturn the state's constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.

"The citizens of South Carolina spoke ... they spoke something that I, too, believe, which is marriage should between a man and a woman," Haley told reporters after speaking at an event sponsored by the S.C. Chamber of Commerce in the Isle of Palms. "I’m going to stand by the people of this state, stand by the constitution, I’m going to support it and fight for it every step of the way."

Does Miss Lindsey share her views?

by Anonymousreply 26910/10/2018

Didn't she get free housing in NYC for the UN Mission? I thought we had some fancy penthouse apartment for our Ambassador. After all it is an Embassy. So she had free housing, free transportation, and a staff. She also probably had to entertain a lot but maybe she didn't pay the caterers. She worked for Trump so why not.

R238- They don't necessarily have to be a celebrity as long as they have the charisma of one and can give good speeches. Beto qualifies on both counts.

If she had any common sense,decency,or ethics she would never have accepted a job in the Trump WH. And beautiful- no not really. Rough looking skin and lanky greasy looking hair.

by Anonymousreply 27410/10/2018

Yeah, r274, I never realized what bad skin she had. It really shows in the photo at OP.

by Anonymousreply 27510/10/2018

She resigned because she's thinking about her career. She still has a future as a prominent conservative woman. No womam can stand by Trump with him condeming a sexual assault victim. And I dont believe Dr. Ford, personally. But Trump disparging her like that is ignorant and wholly unpresidential. This is one thing for certain that history wont be kind to Trump about.

[quote] Swear to gods I want the October surprised to be Mueller indicting Jared, Donnie Jr. and Papa Drumpf a few days before the midterm.

No. That would give him opportunity to rally the Deplorables to his defense, and to the polls. Mueller will wait until after midterms.

by Anonymousreply 27710/11/2018

So how does the Mueller report get out. The rules a re that he finishes his investigation and he makes a written report to Rosenstein or the AG if it isn't Sessions. It is then up to the Justice Department to decide whether to make it public. But don't they have to report to Congress too? Reporting to Congress would be best, if that's part of the rules. Because if they refuse to make it public, and they send it to Congress it is bound to leak. That's where all the leaks come from. Congressional staff.

by Anonymousreply 27810/11/2018

I have a bad feeling about the day after the Mid Terms. I feel ike all hell is going to break lose. I feel like Bill Shine, his communications director, Sean Hannity, Rudy and a couple other cronies including JAred, etc. are all strategizing for how they roll out their activities. Some of it also involves McGahn and McConnell, and Ryan. They probably have three scenarios: "1. If we lose both houses, 2. If we lose one house, 3. If the Dems make some gains but we barely hold on to our majorities."

Congress has a playbook all set for the Lame Duck Session, and the White House has their own plan. Mueller and the Democrats have to be ready for it. I wish someone in McGahn's office or at DOJ would leak out their plans.

Good old Judge Ellis wants to sentence Manafort before the election. He doesn't give a damn if it's bad timing before the election. For once I appreciate him.

by Anonymousreply 28110/11/2018

Why would Mueller wait until after the midterms to roll out indictments? He’s a republican. He may want to indict Trumps, but he wants republicans to win. So he might indict before the elections to stimulate the republican voters. Then he can claim he’s not working to help the opposition. “See? I’m not a democrat.”

by Anonymousreply 28210/11/2018

FBI almost never makes indictments or arrests within 60 days of an election R282 It is a unspoken rule. It's why people got so mad at Comey, stuff like that really doesn't happen

by Anonymousreply 28310/11/2018

It's an open question in this case, though, R283, because any indictments would be against Trump and those in his campaign. Technically, Trump is not up for election this year, so no rule would be broken if Mueller were to issue any additional indictments. Frankly, though, I doubt he will.

by Anonymousreply 28410/11/2018

Rosenstein is the conservative Republican. Friend and supporter of Kavanaugh. I bet he made some promises to Trump in order to not get fired. I've felt like the fix is in the last week or so. Always worried about it, but now it really looks like it. Mueller will put out a hell of a report but he needs to wait till next January. Even then - the Senate will do nothing but shrug. The House will do lots of investigations. - Maybe enough to slow the Trumpsters down. But most of the government institutions will be greatly altered.

I am very disheartened. Don't mean to bring everybody down.

Mueller and Rosenstein are old fashioned. Their loyalty is to the constitution of the United States, not the Republican Party. This crap about party loyalty is a fascist requirement of the new putin-led Republican Party.

R291, that's what I was thinking. Some people can be republican and still be appalled at treason. I'm a solid democrat, but if a democrat engages in criminal conduct then they need to be held accountable. Enough of this fucking corruption.
