Nikki Haley Is Making a List…
In the spirit of the season, and I mean Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year’s Day, our Ambassador to the UN warned every other nation’s delegation that…
She’s making a list.
She’s checking it twice.
She’s already found out who’s naughty and nice (final list at 1:57:55). [Thanks to @arahant for screen capture.]
Santa Claus will no longer hand out American taxpayers’ cash to UNgrateful nations that disrespect US.
It is a refreshing change to have our most public diplomat represent the will of the American people to the UN and not the other way around. There are a number of nations who either are in denial or who are blinded to their own peoples’ interests because of deeply embedded Jew-hatred at the core of their foreign offices. They are now finding American elections have consequences. So…
Happy New Year: President Trump will really put US interests over the UN and his choice of Ambassador Nikki Haley ensures his intent is supported, not opposed, by our diplomatic mission. Scott Johnson of PowerLine favorably compares Nikki Haley in this moment to Daniel Patrick Moynahan denouncing the infamous “Resolution 3379, declaring Zionism a form of racism.”
Happy Hanukkah: President Trump’s move to fulfill US law and the repeated promises of multiple presidents to recognize the Jewish people’s ancient and abiding connection to Jerusalem.
Merry Christmas: President Trump brought presents of promises fulfilled. He is also clearly stating there is a naughty list his chief UN elf has prepared for him. President Trump announced moving our embassy both as a matter of honor and in the hope it might disabuse the Palestinians of their eliminationist fantasy, creating the possibility of real negotiations in search of peace on Earth, or at least in that little sliver of land where Christ was born so long ago.

Cod bless her!
Here’s hoping follow-through involves evicting these villains, shills for mass-murdering regimes, thieves, liars and other more or less well disguised rogues from New York, tearing the building down and salting the ground on which it stood. Replace it with a “League of Classically Liberal Democracies and Republics” and tell anyone and everyone who objects to pound sand.
Amen to the OP, and indeed — G-d bless Donald Trump and Nikki Haley!
Please, President Trump, given your colossally effective branding talents in the political arena — treating us to “Crooked Hillary,” and a cast of many more pithily-labeled miscreants — help us all by Tweeting not about the UN, but instead about the Reincarnated League of Nations…
Or something like that…
Heck, there’s no doubt that a majority of proud Americans would recognize and heartily endorse your labeling the UN as Mos Eisley Spaceport…
The parallels of the UN to the Imperial Senate of Star Wars are uncanny ….
Does anyone know where I can actually find “the list”, IOW which countries voted which way (and without having to watch a video of the whole fiasco)?
Here’s a list of the countries that voted with the U. S. on this resolution – Togo, Palau, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Honduras, Guatemala and Israel. Not a single European nation on that list and many, including the United Kingdom, actually voted against. I wonder the reasons for the votes of those European countries – is it fear of unrest among their ever-growing Muslim populace or something else?
I hope Trump tweets when a naughty nation asks for money, and we turn them down. I also hope our contribution to the UN gets a humongous hair cut.
Thanks for the screen capture of the moment in the video to which I pointed for the purpose of sparing people having to watch the whole thing. I thought I was clear, but I’ll lightly edit that sentence.
Go Nikki! Go Nikki! Go Nikki!
It’s time to go Full-Lumbergh on the UN.
Wow! Just in time for Christmas! Saving money on all the countries who love American money, might and diplomacy – thank you Nikki and President Trump – for shaking up the assumption that common sense and the status quo don’t go hand in hand –
Excuse me while I break dance right now……
Cue dancing cat memes?
The UN itself inadvertently made Ambassador Haley’s point in their press release on this vote:
Always that one country and always against that one country.
Can Nikki Haley be our president next?
Yes, please, or Sec of State.
This Jerusalem moment does remind me of “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.” Even in my self-proclaimed “radical” youth I was capable of recognizing that a country that needed a wall to keep it’s people in was not a good, just, decent place. (I remember arguing with a “socialist” boyfriend about this, in fact…no necking for him that night!) So Reagan said what was clear and evident to any organism with even rudimentary light-sensing organs attached to the front of its face.
On NPR tonight, the story about the U.N. perfidy was introduced as “the United States “declaring” Jerusalem Israel’s capital.” As if Trump was indulging in some reckless novelty rather than recognizing a fact on the ground.
Kate, there’s more to this story than meets the eye..
Look for her to move to State after 2018 elections, earliest, or in time for 2020 reelection team roster, setting her up for possible 2024 endorsement. (I don’t think Pence will want to run.)
I hope my wife understands my crush on Nikky Haley.
The General Assembly has no authority of any kind. What a lot of people object to is the way in which the GA advertises itself as being some kind of parliament, which it is not and was never intended to be.
With all its pomposity, corruption, lack of transparency, hypocrisy, and plethora of member states that lack any basic freedoms, I never took the U.N. seriously. I always looked at it as lacking in legitimacy. Now I see that it is lacking in decency as well. Good riddence.
I’d be thrilled if we could have them swap jobs. Nikki could be president now, and Donald could take over in the UN to express our signal contempt for the entire wretched hive of scum and villainy.
The media bias has gone beyond the pale. Just in the past few days, they have – without cause – trashed the tax cuts and now this. How in heaven’s name can the truth get through to the general public??
God Bless Nikki Haley for standing tall – acting on the President’s behalf. God bless them both.
By the President’s tweets, that everybody loves to hate!
Thank you for posting that. I am filled with hope for our country after seeing her actions at the UN.
