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.

On the TV the other night, Sinead O’Connor suddenly appeared. This never was sang that terrible noise she recorded when Thomas Edison was doing the taping. Then she started in whining and ranting about, well gibberish. I turned her off back then and did this time too.

Sinead goes Shahada?…from Rico

I had long forgotten Sinead O’Connor until her recent conversion to Islam.

– Her one ‘hit’ in 1990 was quite unlistenable, and with nothing going for her since, it was like she just suddenly told Cat Stevens “watch this, and hold my beer.”

After all, becoming a Muzzie did so very much for his career, what could possibly go wrong for hers?

She has assumed the Musloid name ‘Shahada’ which roughly translates to ‘shithead’ or ‘shit-for-brains’ which fits neatly, but I would vote for ‘ramalama-ding-dong’ myself, if asked.

No, Stop, No: MSNBC Host Goes Nuts When Confronted With Past Examples Of Violent Left Wing Rhetoric

MSNBC Host Katy Tur got a little testy with conservative commentator Erick Erickson, who dared to bring up that the Left has become unspooled since Donald Trump’s upset win over Hillary Clinton in 2016. Over the past few days, 13 devices that look like bombs have been mailed to prominent Democrats, including former presidents, and celebrities. We just had an arrest in Florida, but we don’t know what their political leanings are, if any, or a motive. We don’t know. Yet, the liberal news media know exactly who it is: Donald Trump…and his supporters. We’re to blame for the Left becoming so mind-numbingly stupid over the past two years. And that goes double for the media. Erickson merely said that both sides need to calm down, and that Trump didn’t start the insanity that has been brewing for months during his presidency. That’s when Tur lost it (Via The Hill):

“It’s pretty clear when you’re talking about this toxic political environment, that it did start with, mostly with, Donald Trump,” Tur said, noting many of Trump’s statements during his 2016 presidential campaign. Among others, she pointed to the repeated “lock her up” chants that target former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Erickson attempted to chime in by referencing a past statement from former President Obama. But Tur quickly interrupted, asking Erickson to let her finish.

“Let me finish, this is my show,” she said.

“Have you ever heard a politician other than Donald Trump say I’m so proud, or give a kudos to another politician who body-slammed a reporter? Have you heard that from anybody else other than Donald Trump?” she asked, referring to Trump’s recent rally in Montana.

Erickson responded that “Trump is a symptom of what’s going on in this country,” before adding that the president was not responsible for the incident in which a man shot at multiple U.S. lawmakers while they conducted a baseball practice in Washington, D.C., last year.

“Both sides are to blame, and if you’re going to say it’s just Donald Trump, what you’re going to do is you’re going to have 50 percent of the country that says, you know what she’s not really interested in a solution,” Erickson added.

Tur then concluded the segment by saying, “I think everybody needs to take responsibility for their own actions.”

“But to say it didn’t get lowered, that the bar did not get demonstrably lower when Donald Trump started running for office, is just not true and it’s offensive,” Tur said.

Watching these idiots on CNN, MSNBC and the Nets OCCASIONALLY will give you a good perspective on jut how insane the Left is.

Happy Halloween Jackasses

The greatest treat of all.

Peccable reflections

As I have heard these Jackasses say on occasion, “No harm, no foul”. Usually they say that when they get caught ‘screwing the pooch’.

We wouldn’t put it past them to send this stuff themselves to produce some blip on the upcoming mid-term elections.

Let us see if that suborned FBI can ferret out the culprit.

Just desserts

The lawyer who manufactured a spurious witness against Kavanaugh now finds his testicles in a vise.

Big Loss for Michael

Avenatti as Judge

Orders Him to Pay

Up $4.85 million

Michael Avenatti must pay $4.85 million to a former colleague who claims the lawyer stiffed him out of millions in profits, a Los Angeles judge ruled Monday.

The decision comes as Avenatti floats his name as a contender to oppose Donald Trump in 2020, and makes appearances at Democratic events ahead of the midterm elections—including in New Hampshire, where he was slated to speak Monday. The attorney launched a political action committee, Fight PAC, to bolster his efforts.

But as The Daily Beast reported, Avenatti and his current and former companies owe millions in unpaid taxes and judgments—including the $4.85 million settlement to the former employee, Jason Frank. The lawyer’s tangled finances will likely come under scrutiny if he does officially announce his candidacy. [snip]
