So the global socialists are worried about who will replace Haley.

UN worries about next ‘America First’ ambassador after Haley’s resignation

President Donald Trump’s “America First” rhetoric was never popular at the United Nations, but officials there are now worried they’re losing a critical ally as the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley, prepares to leave.

The gulf between a U.N. diplomatic community that cherishes multilateralism and Trump’s open disdain for “globalists” was always wide. Yet Haley managed to deliver the president’s domestic applause lines even as she forged a partnership with Secretary-General Antonio Guterres over budget cuts, and rallied the Security Council around new sanctions against North Korea.

With the U.N. depending on Washington for about a quarter of its budget, officials there worry that Haley’s successor as U.S. ambassador will lack the political savvy and –– more importantly –– the personal rapport with Trump to soften the president’s harder-edged foreign policy approach. The former South Carolina governor had direct access to the president and received a rare Oval Office send-off when she announced her resignation.

“You want the U.N. ambassador to have the president’s ear,” said former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, who was U.S. ambassador to the U.N. in the late 1990s. “You also want someone with their own political stature.” [snip]

The UN can just get out of NY and the United States. Set it up in a lovely little village in Uganda of Kenya. As for Richardson, his political stripe got him unelected.

Gillum intern arrested in Florida for throwing chocolate milk at College Republicans

An intern for Democratic Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum has been arrested and charged with battery after she threw chocolate milk on a group of College Republicans tabling on campus.

The far-left student activist who had the profanity-laced meltdown, Shelby Shoup, is listed as an intern for the Andrew Gillum for Florida Governor Campaign on LinkedIn and a member of FSU Students for Justice in Palestine. Gillum’s campaign did not return a Fox News request for comment.

A portion of the profane exchange with the College Republicans on campus was caught on camera.

Shoup threw her drink on SFU College Republicans Vice-Membership Chair, Daisy Judge, and when another student passing by tried to de-escalate the situation, she threw the remainder of her drink on him, according to a statement released by the College Republicans at FSU.

“You are supporting Nazis,” Shoup said in the video posted online. “Do you understand that?”

Another student snapped back at the girl wearing a communist pin: “And you are supporting communism?”poi

This is the environment of political discourse that one can expect from the Jackass candidate for Florida governor.

Strange: Caravan Riders File Class Action Lawsuit Against the U.S. For Violating Their Constitutional Rights

Illegal aliens traveling on the caravan from Central America on Thursday filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump, Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice for what they say is a violation of their constitutional rights. The lawsuit was filed in Washington, D.C. on behalf of six illegal aliens and their children, bringing the total number of plaintiffs to 12, Fox News reported.

According to the caravan riders, the Trump administration violated their Fifth Amendment, which says “no person… shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.”

According to the lawsuit, Trump is violating federal law by preventing asylum seekers from entering the United States. [snip]

If they want to seek asylum, they should have gone to the American Consulate in their country to file. Barring that they can go to a legal port of entry and file.
American law also requires thhose seeking asylum to file in any country that they pass through what will admit them.

 

Hooboy, another Lefty accuser lied about her assault by Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh Accuser Admits: I Made Up Claims of Sexual Assault to “Get Attention”

A woman who accused Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault admitted to congressional investigators she made up her claims to “get attention.”

According to a letter sent to Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday afternoon, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley referred Judy Munro-Leighton for criminal prosecution and revealed her actions were part of a ploy to take down Kavanaugh’s nomination.

From the letter, bolding is mine:

Given her relatively unique name, Committee investigators were able to use open-source research to locate Ms. Munro-Leighton and determine that she: (1) is a left-wing activist; (2) is decades older than Judge Kavanaugh; and (3) lives in neither the Washington DC area nor California, but in Kentucky.

On November 1, 2018, Committee investigators connected with Ms. Munro-Leighton  by  phone  and  spoke  with  her  about  the  sexual-assault  allegations  against  Judge Kavanaugh she had made to the Committee.  Under questioning by Committee investigators, Ms. Munro-Leighton admitted, contrary to her prior claims, that she had not been sexually assaulted by Judge Kavanaugh and was not the author of the original “Jane Doe” letter.  When directly asked by  Committee  investigators  if  she  was,  as  she  had  claimed,  the  “Jane  Doe”  from  Oceanside  California who had sent the letter to Senator Harris, she admitted: “No, no, no.  I did that as a way to grab attention.

She further confessed to Committee investigators that (1) she “just wanted to get attention”; (2) “it was a tactic”; and (3) “that was just a ploy.”  She told Committee investigators that she had called Congress multiple times during the Kavanaugh hearing process – including prior to the time Dr.  Ford’s  allegations  surfaced  –  to  oppose  his  nomination.

Regarding  the  false  sexual-assault allegation she made via her email to the Committee, she said: “I was angry, and I sent it out.” When asked by Committee investigators whether she  had  ever  met  Judge  Kavanaugh,  she  said:  “Oh Lord, no.”  

Grassley has also referred Julie Swetnik, Michael Avanetti and an unnamed man for criminal prosecution after making false claims to congressional investigators. [snip]

Maybe Ginsburg will croak. Then watch the Jackasses go berserk in the hearings. Hell I’d sell somebody else’s first born to watch that. Perhaps a piggy pile of those dirtbags would stroke out and do the Country some good for a change.
