“Look at the tyranny of party — at what is called party allegiance, party loyalty — a snare invented by designing men for selfish purposes — and which turns voters into chattles, slaves, rabbits, and all the while their masters, and they themselves are shouting rubbish about liberty, independence, freedom of opinion, freedom of speech, honestly unconscious of the fantastic contradiction; ….” From … “The Character of Man,” by Mark Twain
The main point of the following article regarding Nikki Haley is, “What you see is not what you get or even want.” Unexplained but indeed understood is the author’s choice of the Romney/Haley photo “op” here.
Perhaps the best explanation for the above photo “op” is found at AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE MEDIA “Mitt Romney: Just Another Corrupt Bush Son.” introduced thusly, “The idea that the corporate media is floating about Mitt Romney “assuming” the senate seat of Orin Hatch is disheartening and underscores the short memories of political pundits who have forgotten the cloud of corruption and crimes that surround Unfit Mitt.”
We must conclude that there has been no choice.
According to Sundance, Haley will be a future Presidential candidate groomed by old line, hard line, monied Goodfellas ….
From “The Conservative Treehouse” & “The Last Refuge“
In the grand scheme of things, the move of U.N. Secretary Nikki Haley to resign is a typical move of a professional politician on the establishment side of the GOPe political continuum.
Ms. Haley comes from the political house of Bush; hence the original Rubio support in 2016 etc. She is a political animal from the establishment wing.
Within the traditional political class the customary approach to a White House run is to gain about five years of wealth in advance of a presidential run. Haley would be following a wealth process for a 2024 presidential run.
During this wealth accumulation period the cocktail party circuit (the billionaire crowd) will front-load wealth, purchase homes and all expenses etc, for the future candidate. This ‘Five Year Plan‘ was the same historic approach done for Ronald Reagan.
With a candidate in the private sector, the professional donor-class make investments in the candidate while it is legal to do so. The investments are made in anticipation of future influence. This is simply how money influences politics.
With the “Me Too” movement in high political value, the currency of Nikki Haley, as an investment candidate, is at the apex. Haley checks the right boxes; she is making a predictable move to capitalize on that process, politics and timeliness.
The U.N., as an institution, is also in alignment with the high-brow Prescott Bush clan. Ms. Nikki Haley is regarded by this clan as a very valuable commodity. If they can’t get Jeb, or another Bush (ie. Rubio) over the finish line, they will be much better positioned with investments in Nikki Haley.
It goes without saying the U.N. is not MAGA. In many ways the interests of the U.N. run counter to the more nationalistic MAGA movement. Hence, it was smart for President Trump to put a non-MAGA ambassador into the U.N. while simultaneously, and smartly, using the position to keep the globalists from attacking MAGA policy.
It was a strategic move when it was done and the benefits have been visible.
Moving forward, despite the success of President Trump in taking over the Republican party, the political apparatus still has factions (ie. Never Trump etc.). Those GOPe types will back Nikki Haley in 2024 as they did Jeb in 2016. The outlooks are same/same. This is all entirely predictable.
Due to the increasing success of the MAGA or Trump Republican apparatus, Haley will need to carefully position herself as a stealth Decepticon and not upset the vulgarian hordes; ie. the new republican party base voter. As a smart and tactical politician Haley will invest heavily in the optics of supporting the MAGA movement; and embrace President Trump to avoid any conflict.
Much like the primary of 2016 (w/ Jeb), the primary race of 2024 will determine if Haley can con enough people into not seeing her elitist Decepticon position.
The Bush clan and professional political cocktail circuit was rebuked in 2016, so we can anticipate their strategy in 2024 will be with those strategic lessons at the forefront.

Nikki is easy to embrace but her calculus comes from the Goodfellas in the Swamp!
Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, lambasted Islamic countries in a meeting of the Security Council on the Middle East, urging them to put their money where their mouth is regarding the Palestinian problem. Instead of providing relief aid and engaging in the peace process, as does the United States, the Arab and other Islamic states are inflaming the global community with lies and giving “speech after speech on the plight of the Palestinians,” she said Tuesday. “No group of countries is more generous with their words than the Palestinians’ Arab neighbors and other [Organization of Islamic Cooperation] member states,” she said, the Algemeiner reported. “But all of the words spoken here in New York do not feed, clothe or educate a single Palestinian child. All they do is get the international community riled up.” She pointed to the paltry support from Islamic nations for the U.N. refugee agency dedicated to the Palestinians, UNRWA. In 2017, for example, she said, the contribution of Iran, Algeria and Tunisia to UNRWA was “zero.” Others gave very little, from Pakistan’s $20,000, to Turkey’s $6.7 million to the United Arab Emirates $12.8 million. In contrast, Haley pointed out, the United States gave $364 million. “That’s 10 times the combined amounts from every country I just named,” she said. “And that’s on top of what the American people give annually to the Palestinians in bilateral assistance. That was another $300 million last year, and it averages to more than a quarter of a billion dollars every year since 1993.” She also found the Arab nations missing in action in the peace process. “Where are the Arab countries when it comes to encouraging reconciliation between Palestinian factions, which is essential to peace?” she asked. “Where are the Arab countries when it comes to denouncing Hamas terrorism? Where are the Arab countries when it comes to supporting compromises that are necessary for peace?” Haley charged that Palestinian leadership “has been allowed to live in a false reality for too long because Arab leaders are afraid to tell them the truth.” She said the United States “is telling them the truth because we care about the Palestinian people.”
The Ole’ Buzzard’s good friend and reader commented, “After reading your piece on Haley yesterday, can’t agree more. She reeks of establishment opportunism, just like Ted Cruz. I read that she was playing the long game and perhaps didn’t want to end up like Colin Powell, holding the bag for a war that was unpalatable to the public and then have her career go south. She knows the calculus. Here is one thing she did say that made sense during her tenure. https://www.wnd.com/2018/07/
