HOW NIKKI HALEY CAN BE STOPPED

WHY NIKKI HALEY MUST BE STOPPED

Nikki Haley can be removed from office–this is the only way she can be stopped.

But President Trump won’t do this, because he’s the one who nominated her for this position in his cabinet–immediately after he was elected.

And if President Trump is removed from office, President Pence won’t do this either.

No Democratic or Republican politician will remove Nikki Haley from office.  She’s too right-wing for the Republicans to remove her, and too politically correct for the Democrats to remove her–it was both Republicans and Democrats on the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations who confirmed her, in the first place.

Nikki Haley will not be removed from office officially.

But she can be removed from office unofficially.

She can be executed for her crime.

As of April 10, 2017, Dylann S. Roof has finally been given nine consecutive life sentences for the nine lives he took.  But Nikki Haley has not only escaped prosecution for her crime of exploiting the mass murder committed by Dylann Roof–she is being rewarded for it.  And in four years (eight years if Trump or Pence is reelected) she may be President of the United States.

I have neither the means nor expertise to carry out an act of vigilante justice.

But someone has.

Someone has both the means and expertise to execute Nikki Haley for her crime of exploiting a mass murder.

Someone has both the means and expertise to execute Nikki Haley before she can exploit any more mass murders–and before she can further her career, even into the White House, on the backs of countless more murder victims.

Unless protocol has changed, Nikki R. Haley (a.k.a. Nimrata Randhawa Haley) currently resides in an elaborate and elegant suite of rooms on the 42nd floor of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City.  She works gloats, schemes, and manipulates at the United Nations Headquarters complex in New York City.  And though she is almost certainly guarded between the United Nations and the Waldorf-Astoria most of the time, she is almost certainly unguarded between the United Nations and the Waldorf-Astoria some of the time.

As long as Nikki Haley serves as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, justice will not be served.

Someone has both the means and expertise to serve justice–to execute the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley for her crime against humanity.

That someone has my appreciation and admiration.

And that someone will have my testimony, on his (or her) behalf, once justice has finally been served.

All he (or she) needs to do is mention my name (Scott Wesley Mayo)–or the name of my blog.

BECAUSE HISTORY IS REPEATING ITSELF

150 years ago, the Republican Party was punishing the entire Southern region of the United States for the murderous act of one deranged zealot–John Wilkes Booth.

And 150 years later, the Republican Party is punishing the entire Southern region of the United States for the murderous act of one deranged zealot–Dylann Storm Roof.

Formed in 1854–not for the abolition of slavery, but for the creation of an American empire centered in the industrialized Northern region of the United States–the Republican Party, from the very beginning, was literally pledged against the South.

Now the Republican Party is pledged against the South, once again.

And just as it is time for Democratic voters all over the United States to abandon the Democratic Party, it is time for Republican voters all over the United States to abandon the Republican Party–especially in the South.

Because history is repeating itself.

THE ULTIMATE COST OF CENSORSHIP

I last visited New Orleans in the summer of 1991, when I was 25.

It was a wonderful experience–so much to ponder.

One night there, I stayed at the Cornstalk Inn Hotel, in the French Quarter.

Among the many sites I’d seen that day was a slave market–just down the street from this bed-and-breakfast hotel.

According to the legend of the Cornstalk Inn, Harriet Beecher Stowe was among the many notable guests who had slept there–and she was inspired to write Uncle Tom’s Cabin, after visiting that slave market.

Of course that slave market was still in business when Harriet Beecher Stowe was there.

And of course I pondered what that must have been like–seeing people being sold like cattle.

That slave market was still there, in 1991–as it still is today.

It was far older than that historic hotel–in fact, it had probably been built by the French.

And if it hadn’t have been there, I couldn’t have pondered anything.

Before Mitch Landrieu’s term is up, he’ll almost certainly destroy that slave market too.

And at this point, he might as well.

After all, I can never again ponder the historical significance of the Battle of Liberty Place, in New Orleans.  Nor can I ever again ponder the historical and cultural significance of U.S. Secretary of War and Confederate President Jefferson Davis, U.S. Civil Engineer and Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard, and U.S. Lieutenant Colonel and Confederate General Robert E. Lee–all three men greatly, and validly, admired by the United States and Confederate States, alike.

This is the ultimate cost of this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America.

This is the ultimate cost of censorship–especially government-imposed censorship, executed by self-serving politicians, with no regard for the constitutional or civil rights of their constituents.

HOSTILE TAKEOVERS

When the demons are so suspicious, how can the son later make any good connection with adult male energy, especially the energy of an adult man in a position of authority or leadership?  As a musician he will smash handcrafted guitars made by old men, or as a teacher suspicious of older writers he will ‘deconstruct’ them.  As a citizen he will take part in therapy rather than politics…”

“…in traditional cultures, the older men and the older women often are the first to speak in public gatherings; younger men may say nothing but still aim to maintain contact with the older men.  Now we have twenty-seven-year-olds engaged in hostile takeovers who will buy out a publishing house and dismantle in six months what an older man has created over a period of thirty years.”

Text from Iron John: A Book About Men, by Robert Bly, 1990

WHO’S AFRAID OF THE TRUTH?

As of today, May 19, 2017, Mitch Landrieu has finally completed the destruction of all four of the Confederate memorial monuments in New Orleans.

He has done this without the consent of the people of Greater New Orleans, Louisiana at all–he hasn’t even allowed them to vote on it.

Using taxpayers’ money, Mayor Landrieu has employed henchmen among the firefighters of New Orleans (read Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury) to destroy these American historical monuments–all wearing masks and bulletproof vests, and all with the protection of police snipers, also employed by Landrieu (read 1984, by George Orwell).

In a private speech Mayor Landrieu gave his cronies today–both Democratic and Republican–he said, “We cannot be afraid of the truth.”

Who’s afraid of the truth?

The four Black, Democratic mayors who preceded Mitch Landrieu were not afraid of the truth.

Mitch Landrieu’s father, Mayor Moon Landrieu, was not afraid of the truth.

The citizens of Greater New Orleans–of all races and ethnic groups–were not afraid of the truth.

But Mayor Mitch Landrieu was certainly afraid of the truth.

Why, he was so afraid of the truth that he completely censored it, erased it so that no one would ever be able to know or understand it.

No tourists would ever be able to ask who Jefferson Davis was, who P.G.T. Beauregard was, who Robert E. Lee was–or even what gave rise to a local skirmish between Democrats and Republicans.

No tourists would ever be able to ask what the Confederate States of America was–how it was established, and why–and why it fought a defensive war against the United States of America to maintain its independence.

No tourists would ever be able to ask why the United States waged this war against the Confederate States, in the first place–and why the United States engaged in a brutal occupation of the former Confederate States, in which all citizens of the former Confederate States of America were denied their constitutional rights under the United States Constitution for twelve years.

No tourists would ever be able to ask what impact this era of American history would have on the future of the United States of America.

No tourists would ever be able to ask any questions about American history in New Orleans at all, because no tourists would know what questions to ask.

No tourists would ever see any evidence of this history.

No tourists would ever be able to learn the truth.

No schoolchildren ever would, either.

No future citizens of Greater New Orleans ever would, either.

Yes, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu was certainly afraid of the truth.

Just as Republican South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley was.

Just as Republican Alabama Governor Robert Bentley was.

Just as Republican Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward was.

Just as Republican Escambia County Commissioners Doug Underhill, Steven Barry, Wilson Robertson, and Grover C. Robinson IV were.

Just as Democratic Escambia County Commissioner Lumon May was.

Just as every state and local politician in the Southern United States was–and still is.

Because all politicians know that truth is something to be avoided, at all costs.

All politicians know that their power can only be maintained as long as their constituents are kept in a state of ignorance–as long as their constituents are blissfully unaware of the truth.

Who’s afraid of the truth?

RIGHT NOW!

Confederate flags of every design have been completely censored by state and local politicians all over the Southern United States–and none of their constituents have had any say in this government-imposed censorship of historical flags.

Now the next phase has begun–the destruction of Confederate memorial monuments.  New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, like most of the state and local politicians who have followed Nikki Haley’s lead, is White.  But unlike most of the state and local politicians who have followed Nikki Haley’s lead, Mitch Landrieu is a Democrat.

Mitch Landrieu has finally begun destroying all Confederate memorial monuments in New Orleans, Louisiana–having given his constituents no say in the matter, whatsoever.  He hasn’t even allowed the people of New Orleans to vote on it.

As I mention, in the second part of my presentation on Pensacola’s Five Flags displays, flags can be restored to their rightful places in historical flags displays, and at historical sites.  But historical monuments cannot be restored.  Once they’re destroyed–even by being dismantled and moved–they can never be restored to their rightful places in the past, present, or future.

Mitch Landrieu is getting away with this destruction of historical monuments because so few Southern Americans have resisted this censorship of historical flags.

As I also state in the second part of my presentation on Pensacola’s Five Flags displays, this is how politicians work.  Politicians test their constituents by infringing on their constitutional rights.  And when their constituents fail to resist, they continue infringing on their constitutional rights–until their constituents stop them.  Give politicians an inch, they will take a mile–and the more inches their constituents give them, the more miles they will take.

Not all political leaders are diabolically evil, because not all political leaders are politicians.  But most of them are–all over the world–and always have been.  And all politicians are diabolically evil–there are no exceptions.

I couldn’t afford T-shirts with my statement, “The posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America.” But I had to buy them anyway–because almost no one in the Greater Pensacola area even recognized the First Confederate Flag on T-shirts of mine.  Almost no one in the Greater Pensacola area even recognized this flag that had been censored from their historical flags displays without their consent, by local politicians–all but one of whom were White Republicans.  And still, almost no one does–I have never been so disgusted with the people of a metropolitan area in my life.

So I needed to spell it out for these disgustingly ignorant, apathetic, and complacent people–I needed to wear T-shirts with a statement instead. And this has been slightly more effective in Greater Pensacola.

Yet the most enthusiastic compliments and questions on my T-shirts with the statement, “The posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America,” have come from residents and former residents of Greater New Orleans, Louisiana.  Because, now that all designs of the Confederate Flag have been censored in their city, without their consent–all Confederate memorial monuments (American historical monuments–generations old) are now being destroyed by the sickeningly small mayor of that great Southern American city, without their consent.

This is the next phase of the posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America that is destructive as hell to the United States of America–it will not stop with New Orleans.

Confederate memorial monuments will be destroyed in Biloxi, Mississippi; Mobile, Alabama; Pensacola, Florida; and in every other metropolitan area of the Southern United States.

Unless the people of the Southern United States start resisting this local-government censorship of their historical flags–this gross infringement on their First-Amendment right to freedom of speech–right now!
