WHY NIKKI HALEY MUST BE STOPPED

On Wednesday, June 17, 2015, Dylann S. Roof murdered nine people during a Bible study at Mother Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston, South Carolina.

Roof posed as an innocent kid who just wanted to seek the word of God. He sat quietly for nearly 45 minutes–waiting for his victims to stand up and close their eyes in prayer.  When they did, he took a Glock .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol from his fanny pack, and began firing over seventy shots–killing nine of the twelve people there.

In the wake of that mass murder committed by Dylann Roof, Nikki R. Haley, the Republican Governor of South Carolina, did absolutely nothing to keep murderers like Roof from obtaining guns in South Carolina.   Instead, Haley simply ordered the removal of a Confederate battle flag–not from the South Carolina capitol–but from a Confederate memorial monument on the capitol grounds–to which it had been moved in 2000. And that’s all she did.

Nikki Haley exploited a mass murder, and began a campaign of gross infringement on our First-Amendment right to freedom of speech–carried out primarily by Republican politicians all over the Southern United States–simply to avoid any discussion of our Second-Amendment right to keep and bear arms.  It is a program of cultural genocide against the Southern American people of all races and ethnic groups–a posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America that is destructive to the United States of America.  It is still going on–and Nikki Haley started it all.

Immediately after Donald J. Trump was elected President of the United States last year, he nominated Nikki Haley for a position in his cabinet: U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.

Though I hadn’t voted for Trump or Clinton, I contacted President-elect Trump, and requested that he rescind Nikki Haley’s nomination.  I explained that countless Southern Americans had voted for him in the Republican primaries because they felt betrayed by the establishment Republican Party–that state and local Republican politicians had begun censoring Confederate flags all over the Southern United States without the consent of their constituents, and that Republican Governor Nikki Haley had started this mass censorship.

“You told these Southern Republican voters that you were not just another establishment Republican politician,” I wrote.  “And they took your word for that, and voted for you.  Now your nomination of Nikki Haley–the quintessential establishment Republican politician who started this cultural genocide against the American South–will be seen as an act of betrayal, on your part.”

President-elect Trump never replied.

When I learned that the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations would decide whether to confirm Nikki Haley for this cabinet position, I contacted it, and explained why she shouldn’t be confirmed.

Soon I learned that Republican Senator Marco Rubio was a member of this same committee. Rubio was endorsed by Nikki Haley in the 2016 Republican presidential campaign. It occurred to me that Senator Rubio had likely contacted President-elect Trump, and asked him for a favor–and this was the favor.

So I contacted Senator Rubio.  I wrote, “If it’s just a coincidence that you are on the same committee that decides whether to confirm Nikki Haley for this presidential cabinet position, I ask that you prove it by voting against her confirmation.”

Senator Rubio never replied.

Then I learned that Republican Senator Bob Corker would be presiding over Nikki Haley’s confirmation hearing.

I contacted Senator Corker, and explained why Nikki Haley should not be confirmed as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.  “If possible, please share this email with every senator on the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations,” I wrote.

Senator Corker never replied.

The Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley’s confirmation hearing before the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations was held on Wednesday, January 18, 2017.

Nikki Haley was seated between her parents–Sikhs who had gone to great lengths to distance themselves from Muslims, and from the darker-skinned people of the “lower” and “untouchable” Indian castes. Her father wore a turban. Now this was a grown woman–the governor of a U.S. state–letting her parents literally handhold her, in order to avoid any tough questions. And her scheme worked–she was asked no tough questions. This was disgusting.

And before those easy questions were asked, a couple Black subordinates of Nikki Haley’s spoke laudably of her.  These were Uncle Toms singing the praises of their condescending, Republican mistress–a radically right-wing, Zionist mistress who’d been given a glowing endorsement by Sarah Palin. This was even more disgusting.

Nikki Haley had the charm turned on during the entire hearing–smiling that disarming smile. She was pretty–even girl-next-door sexy–and she knew it.  She maintained a brilliant facade of sweetness–one couldn’t imagine she could commit such a heinous crime as exploiting a mass murder for her political career. She easily charmed the pants off every Democratic and Republican senator on the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.

And at the close of Nikki Haley’s confirmation hearing, Senator Corker explained that any further questions were simply a formality–assuring the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley that she would be the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. “There is no controversy surrounding your confirmation,” he told her.

But there was–Senator Corker simply hadn’t brought it up. Neither had any other member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations–Democratic or Republican. Every single question referred to Nikki Haley’s future as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Not one question referred to her past as Governor of South Carolina.

After viewing the hearing, I contacted Senator Corker again.  “I respectfully ask that you require Nikki Haley to tell the Southern American people just what she did in July, 2015–and why she did it.”

Senator Corker never replied.

I contacted President Trump.  “I respectfully ask that you require Nikki Haley to tell the Southern American people just what she did in July, 2015–and why she did it.”

President Trump never replied.

I even contacted the Zionist Jew Senator Chuck Schumer.  “I understand you are leading the Democratic Party in curtailing these attempts by the Republican Party to speed up the vetting process of cabinet nominees for President Trump’s sake–and I appreciate your doing this.  I respectfully ask that you require Nikki Haley to tell the Southern American people just what she did in July, 2015–and why she did it.”

Senator Schumer never replied.

And I contacted the United Nations itself. “I am satisfied with Samantha Power’s service as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. And though I’m not familiar with Michele J. Sison, I am reasonably certain that I would be satisfied with her service too. I respectfully request that you keep Michele Sison on–or that you recall Samantha Power to resume service as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Whatever you decide, I ask that you keep Nikki R. Haley out of the United Nations entirely. She should not be rewarded for exploiting a mass murder.”

Of course the United Nations never replied.

The Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley was confirmed for the presidential cabinet position of United States Ambassador to the United Nations on Tuesday, January 24, 2017.

Dylann Storm Roof, the mass murderer whose crime Nikki Haley exploited, has not even been tried for murder yet–and he’s already been sentenced to death.

But Nikki Haley (a.k.a. Nimrata Randhawa Haley), a politician guilty of exploiting a mass murder for her own political benefit (arguably the closest crime possible to accessory to murder after the fact), has not only escaped indictment and prosecution for her crime–but is being rewarded for her crime.

Nikki Haley’s promotion from Governor of South Carolina to U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations is the very reason she exploited a mass murder, in the first place.  If she had not exploited the mass murder committed by Dylann Roof on June 17, 2015, Nikki Haley would not have attained this political promotion.

And just like any other criminal sociopath who has gotten away with a crime, Nikki Haley will commit more crimes.  As U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley will exploit mass murders committed all over the world.  And as she continues committing this same crime against humanity, she will continue benefiting from it.

This is why Nikki Haley must be stopped.

ABANDON THEM BOTH

The Republican Party has White Americans fooled every bit as much as the Democratic Party has Black Americans fooled.

Both parties make fools of all who remain loyal to them.

Abandon them both–for the sake of all Americans.

YOU’D BETTER GET INVOLVED

If you’re not personally affected by politics, you don’t need to get involved in politics.

However, if you are a citizen of the United States today, you are personally affected by politics–even if you’re not aware of it.

If politics is biting you in the ass, you’d better get involved in politics.

And of course if you are a citizen of the United States today–especially the Southern United States–politics is biting you in the ass.  So you’d better get involved in politics.

NOT JUST TRUMP

“…You know, I’m automatically attracted to gullible–I just start manipulating them.  It’s like a magnet.  Just manipulate.  I don’t even wait.  And when you’re a politician, they let you do it.  You can do anything.”

“…Grab ’em by the balls.  You can do anything…”

Not Just Trump

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 S. 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.

MAKE AMERICA GREATER THAN EVER

Today, Donald J. Trump will become President of the United States.

Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election for many reasons–but poll after poll revealed why his followers followed him so fervently–and voted for him so religiously–he told it like it was.

Donald Trump won on his candor more than anything else.

Now I’m going to be candid with you–you can take my candor or leave it.

Those who voted for Donald Trump in the Republican primaries are only partially to blame for his upcoming presidential term.

Many of them have told me everything will be fine once he’s elected–that he’ll save America.  I heard the same thing about Barack Obama–that he would save America.  And I was among the naive Americans who honestly believed George W. Bush would save America.  And certainly countless Americans really believed Bill Clinton would save America–and George H.W. Bush, and Ronald Reagan, and Jimmy Carter, etc.

Understand–no U.S. president can save America, even if he wants to save America.  Our governmental system is not set up that way.

Even H. Ross Perot–for whom I voted, and countless Americans foolishly did not–could not have saved America without the help of all Americans.

Only a dictator can save a country–and even the most powerful dictator cannot save it in every way, for everyone.  Just ask the Cuban refugees in the United States–or the people of Taiwan.

Trump supporters just don’t want to take any personal responsibility for their country–they’d rather leave everything to President Trump, who they believe will fix everything.  They’re just like Obama supporters were–and Bush supporters, etc.  And they’re just like Hillary Clinton supporters would be, if she were going to take office as president today.

And the most die-hard Trump supporters will blame Congress when President Trump is not able to fix everything–just as the most die-hard Obama supporters did, when Obama wasn’t able to fix everything.

Very few of them will ever ask themselves if they could have done anything to help President Trump fix anything.

The majority of Americans–having voted for someone other than Trump in the Republican primaries, or having voted for anyone in the Democratic primaries, or having not been allowed to vote at all in either primary because they were (as I was, and am) independent voters–will not be celebrating Donald Trump’s inauguration.

We’ll just be simultaneously amused and frightened.

President Trump will almost certainly be the most entertaining president in U.S. history–giving us more laughs than any president before him.  And as long as his antics don’t really hurt anyone (as long as he doesn’t directly or indirectly start a nuclear war, or the equivalent in deadliness) we’ll be laughing more than crying.

But many of us–thousands of us, at least–will be protesting something over which they have no control at all.  Yes, thousands of us will be futilely shouting obscenities at Trump as he takes office today–and committing countless other juvenile, pointless, totally ineffective acts–like glitterbombing.

And it’s those I’d like to candidly address most.

Instead of doing something stupid and destructive, why don’t you do something smart and constructive–like register to vote for the first time as an independent, or change your voting registration from Democrat or Republican to Independent?

If your local supervisor-of-election’s office is closed today, you can probably do this online–or you can wait until it reopens Monday.

If you’re not already registered as an independent voter–registering Independent is the best thing you can do to show your dissatisfaction with President Trump in the most constructive way.

If you’re a Republican voter, you can validly blame the Republican Party for Donald Trump’s presidential victory.  And if you’re a Democratic voter, you can even more validly blame the Democratic Party for Donald Trump’s presidential victory.

But most of all you can blame yourself–for being so mindlessly devoted to either the Democratic or Republican Party.

And once you’ve finished blaming yourself, you can get up and do something about it–you can join us independent voters.

You didn’t know we independent voters were prohibited by law to vote in the Democratic or Republican primaries in most U.S. states.  Or if you did know, you didn’t care, did you?

Well, once you join us independent voters–and face the same discrimination we face every election year–you’ll care.  And then you can help us stop this discrimination that is practiced by both the Democratic and Republican Parties through state Democratic and Republican politicians.

And even more valuable–you’ll have something of which you can truly be proud.

Are you unhappy that Donald J. Trump will be inaugurated President of the United States today?  Then join us–the independent voters of America.

Are you dissatisfied, or maybe even disgusted, with the political party that has betrayed your interests–be it Democratic or Republican?  Then join us–the independent voters of America.

And help us make America greater than ever.
