  • Nikki Haley is killing it at the United Nations

    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is just about killing it at the global body. In recent remarks to the General Assembly, Haley first condemned the anti-Israel faction of the bunch for using the global body for politics, not peace promotion. And then, dramatically enough, she brought to vote a U.S.-penned measure that explicitly faulted Hamas for violence at the Gaza border — a measure that was tacked on as an amendment to an anti-Israel resolution and that actually received the thumbs-up from the majority of the voting parties. Did you get that? It actually received a majority...
  • U.S. expected to retreat from main U.N. rights forum (Human Rights Council): activists, diplomats

    GENEVA (Reuters) - Talks with the United States over how to reform the main U.N. rights body have failed to meet Washington’s demands, activists and diplomats say, suggesting that the Trump administration will quit the Geneva forum whose session opens on Monday. A U.S. source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters the withdrawal appeared to be “imminent” but had no details. Diplomatic sources said it was not a question of if but of when the United States retreats from the Human Rights Council, which is holding a three-week session through July 6. A separate U.S. official in Geneva had...
  • The United Nations Condemns Israel in Lopsided Resolution

    For the umpteenth time, the United Nations General Assembly has voted to condemn Israel for defending itself. By a tally of 120 to 8, the members declared that Israel was guilty of “excessive use of force” against Palestinians who were protesting the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. The resolution also requested recommendations to protect Palestinians. For 10 weeks now, the two sides have clashed at the border, resulting in 120 Palestinian deaths. Israeli Defense Forces warned protesters not to approach the Israeli-Gaza border on May 14, the day of the embassy opening. They did anyway - some armed...

    “Ambassador Haley’s diplomacy behind the scenes, in particular with the Chinese ambassador here, as well as the Russian ambassador, made it very, very clear that we were not kidding around,” the official said. “We were literally just one more provocation away from some kind of a military action that would bring great harm to the entire region, and that the threat we perceived from North Korea’s development was no longer theoretical by any means.” Wachtel said that in refusing “to accept the obstructionist position of her recalcitrant Russian and Chinese counterparts, Ambassador Haley made it clear that the U.S. was...

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised US ambassador Nikki Haley for Wednesday night her spirited defense of Israel in the U.N. and her efforts to get an amendment to the resolution added that would condemn Hamas violence. "Israel appreciates the firm support of the Trump administration in Israel at the United Nations and Ambassador Haley's resolute statement today, which exposed the hypocrisy of the bias against Israel at the U.N.,” he said in a statement

McMaster spoke to Breitbart News Editor in Chief Alex Marlow about his efforts to fend off a challenge from Never Trump-linked former South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control Director Catherine Templeton and about his recent presidential Twitter endorsement. McMaster related that he “wasn’t a bit surprised” at the...

    Longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone pledged to have someone lined up to challenge Vice President Mike Pence should he run for president in 2020. During an interview Friday with Big League Politics, a right-wing news website, Stone suggested that President Trump may not ultimately run for re-election if his first term is adequately successful and denounced the possibility of a 2020 ticket with Pence and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. "I guarantee you I will have a candidate challenge Mike Pence," said while speaking on the "Howley Reports" show. Stone derided Pence as a "establishment Republican quisling"...

    Netanyahu and Erdogan have been trading accusations over the violence in Gaza. Israel has summoned the Turkish consul in Jerusalem after Ankara expelled the country's ambassador. The consul was told to return to Turkey "for consultations for a period of time". After Netanyahu slammed the Turkish president as a "Hamas supporter" earlier in the day, the Turkish Foreign Ministry reportedly advised the Israeli envoy to Ankara to leave the country "for some time." Earlier in the day, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Twitter as "one of the biggest supporters of Hamas," thus, responding...

    True, and no other country in the region would be expected to act with restraint. Good luck to any Yemenis “protesting” at the Saudi border, for instance. There’d be 10 times as many shot and the UN wouldn’t blink.Her quote about the kite-flying Hamas “protester” is also accurate, although she neglected to mention what else he said. On @NPR, @NPRinskeep just asked a Gazan with a kite w a swastika on it what it means to him. "The Jews go crazy when you mention Hitler." Steve Inskeep asked if he knows the Israelis are using the swastikas to discredit...

    Going along with the notion that President Trump should not shut down Mueller’s investigation and making it clear that the investigation needs to wrap up quickly, makes Nikki Haley something patriots do not want: yet another globalist Nikki Haley Hoisting the Globalist Flag at the U.N.? U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has taken a ‘wake me when it’s over’ attitude to Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. President Trump, she says, should not shut down special counsel Mueller’s investigation, adding that she thinks the investigation needs to wrap up quickly “for the good...

    nited Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley said on Sunday that she won’t defend President Trump’s “communication style.” "First of all, he has his communication style," Haley told CBS’s “Sunday Morning.” "But you're not hearing me defend that. "What I will tell you is if there is anything that he communicates in a way that I'm uncomfortable with, I pick up the phone and call him, and I tell him that. And I think that's something that he deserves from me,” the former South Carolina governor said. Haley said that she doesn’t believe she needs to publicly detail the private conversations she...

    United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley followed up on her threat to “take names” Tuesday after the release of the State Department’s annual report detailing the voting records of member nations. “This is not an acceptable return on our investment,” Haley said in a statement. Haley, upon learning that several of the ten member nations who voted with the United States the least were still receiving U.S. aid, was not satisfied. “The American people pay 22 percent of the UN budget – more than the next three highest donor countries combined. In spite of this generosity, the rest of the UN...

    The report found that U.N. member states only voted with the United States 31 percent of the time last year on resolutions at the U.N. General Assembly – down 10 percent from the prior year. Reacting to the new report, Haley said in a statement that it was not an “acceptable return” on the United States’ investment and suggested this could factor into aid decisions. Haley emphasized that U.S. taxpayers pay for 22 percent of the U.N. budget – more, she said, than the next three highest donor nations combined. Haley noted that the U.S. cares more about “being right...

    Nikki Haley is a killer. Not a murderer, but a “killer” in the Donald Trump sense of the word. She is tough and motivated with a “take no prisoners” mindset. Trump has used the term to describe extraordinary women in business since the 1980s. Since she assumed the role as the ambassador to the United Nations, Haley has been putting the world on notice that she means business, going head to head with Russia, Iran, Syria and North Korea for starters. She’s dressed down representatives from countries that would never allow a woman to freely criticize men and she’s shrewdly...

    (CNN)Nikki Haley is not to be trifled with -- especially by the likes of a TV anchor-turned-newly-minted White House aide. Larry Kudlow, the chief economic adviser for President Donald Trump, learned that lesson the (very) hard way on Tuesday after he gave an roundly dismissive interview on Haley's promise of future sanctions against Russia. "She got ahead of the curve," Kudlow told reporters gathered near Mar-a-Lago. "She's done a great job, she's a very effective ambassador. There might have been some momentary confusion about that." It felt -- and sounded -- like a rhetorical pat on the head. Sure, Nikki...

    A White House official said Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council, called Haley to apologize Tuesday afternoon in an effort to mend fences...The officials said a decision was then made to announce the sanctions as an answer to Russia’s response to the strikes. But that plan was re-evaluated and then put on hold over the weekend...On Monday, a new memo went out from the NSC saying that additional sanctions were under consideration, but no decision had been made.

"With all due respect, I don't get confused," she told Dana Perino of Fox News.
