Trump appoints a woman, Nicki Haley the present governor of the State of South Carolina, to the United Nations post as ambassador. That becomes big news in the pathetic national media which tells us that shows Trump is committed to some type of diversity among folk surrounding him. She is American-Indian. Not the type as Elizabeth Warren. Haley is also a she. She also did not support him.
Looking at it more closely it is a Trump throw away. I’d suggest Trump knows little about the UN other than it holds a valuable piece of property in New York City and it is loaded with anti-Americans. He plans to give it short shrift. So he figures why not nominate someone who will look good to the media and international folk yet has little or no say in anything he does. A real Trump type of move: full of flash but empty of substance. A little bone for the media to chew upon.
Here’s a short quiz for you. Name the last six ambassadors to the UN. I had trouble thinking of the name of the present one. There was no way I could name the line before her just like I am unable to name any line of ambassadors to any country. Add to that tell me something significant anyone ever did.
It is pretty much an insignificant post. When I think of UN ambassadors two come to mind. Bush the first and then Kirkpatrick – did she marry Henry Kissinger? I’ll have to go to Wikipedia to figure this out.
But that’s for later. I’m just suggesting now that it is best not to read too much into Trump’s pick of her. Trump is the ultimate showman and Haley was a minor part of the act. It was done to throw a curve ball at the hostile media. He’s having a grand time thinking how he is conning them.
Now as for Secretary of State I’m on record as saying there is no way he will nominate Romney.
I could be wrong. It depends on how much Romney crawled around the floor licking his shoes when he crawled back to him. Talk about a craven man with no backbone you can’t find better definition for obsequiousness than that empty suit. His actions more than anything shows you the lack of character in these individuals coveting positions of power. Has it always been like that?
The one wild card in the Romney intercourse with Trump is the big money link that seems to have been influential in bringing their get together about. You know how much Trump loves money. That, of course, will be his undoing as president. But right now billionaire Sheldon Adelson is holding out pots of gold to Trump.
You know Adelson. He has been trying to buy American boys to go to war for Israel for years. One guy he had on board his ship four years ago was Romney. That’s why I could never had voted for him. That old Dorchester boy will do anything and spend any amount of money to bring it about.
He, his Israeli wife, Benji Netanyahu, and company have since the times of the Bush Jr. presidency been pushing for that. Bush Jr. at one time was told that God allowed him to be elected for that precise purpose of attacking Iran. Bush by then had tired of war so he did not fall for it.
