Nikki Haley, fierce defender of Israel, resigns as US ambassador to the UN

Nikki Haley, the U.S. envoy to the United Nations and a strong defender of Israel in the world body, has resigned, according to reports.

Axios and The New York Times reported Tuesday morning that the former South Carolina governor had stepped down from her position.

Haley. a moderate on President Donald Trump’s foreign policy team, had a warm relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who frequently praised her for criticizing what she saw as bias against the Jewish state at the U.N.

The most consequential actions she took had to do with Israel: She pulled out of UNESCO, the United Nations cultural affiliate, and pushed for the defunding of UNRWA, the agency that administers assistance to Palestinian refugees and their descendants. She threw a party for countries that did not vote to condemn the United States for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Haley was a star in the center-right pro-Israel community, consistently earning the loudest plaudits at the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee policy conference.

“Her departure was unanticipated and took the pro-Israel community by surprise,” Matt Brooks, the Republican Jewish Coalition CEO, said on Twitter. “Stunned and shocked by the surprise resignation of @nikkihaley as UN Amb. She was a consequential and impactful force at the UN.”

Haley downplayed reports of tensions between her and Trump. Born to immigrants from India, she comes from the wing of the Republican Party that favors a robust interventionist foreign policy, while Trump is an isolationist.

Haley condemned another senior aide who favored foreign policy interventionism and expressed opposition to Trump in an anonymous op-ed in The New York Times last month.

“If I disagree with something and believe it is important enough to raise with the president, I do it,” Haley wrote in her own op-ed in The Washington Post. “And he listens. Sometimes he changes course, sometimes he doesn’t. That’s the way the system should work.”

The Washington scuttlebutt at the time was that Haley published the op-ed to squash rumors that she had written the original anonymous op-ed in The Times. It may have backfired; there were reports that Trump resented even the notion that his top staff disagreed with him.

Haley backed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, another fiercely pro-Israel interventionist, during the 2016 presidential primaries. She has denied ambitions of mounting a 2020 primary challenge against Trump. If she did, Haley could tap into a Republican Jewish donor class that fetes her pro-Israel credentials and has never been wholly comfortable with Trump.

  1. Haley comes from South Carolina, a state that is staunchly xtian-zionist, made up of ignorant, backwoods hill billies most of whom have only a third grade education, largely illiterate or semi literate, policed by 400lb. cops, and gets most of its funding, like Florida, running speed traps.
    Primarily used as a dumping ground out of British jails, so the King could claim he made London safer, recorded and uptick in his popularity ratings and then raised taxes. The Carolinas were then settled by pig thieves, cut throats and pick pockets.
    They’ve got good BBQ though.

  2. Something is going on. Maybe the NY State AG has a good case against Trump, and sikki Nikki knows it, and wants to be the first rat to jump ship, or Trump is tired of her embarrassing ways, and 86’d her. Either way we are ahead of the game.

    • Not counting on anything….she could be replaced by someone even worse…..just like the Munchkin’s celebration party was raided by another wicked witch.
      Stay tuned for more…

  3. I can understand weak/sick men getting caught up in disgusting acts, to which they seem to get promoted and move up, but where do we get these women from, how are they compromised?
    Gillard, Bishop, Hailey, Condie, May, Nuland, Clinton, Rice, they all have one thing in common, they support ‘openly’, the racist apartheid rouge ethnic cleansing nuclear state of Israel.

    Zionist whores, every one of them.

    • Follow the “education and sponsoring trail” there you find who is responsible for introduced “female power houses” in federal and international politics. Borders don’t matter, nationalities don’t matter and gender does not matter.

  4. “The Ministry of Peace concerns itself with war, the Ministry of Truth with lies, the Ministry of Love with torture and the Ministry of Plenty with starvation. These contradictions are not accidental, nor do they result from from ordinary hypocrisy: they are deliberate exercises in doublethink”
    ― George Orwell, 1984

  5. Won’t be missed except by Bibi, who will have to have someone else to fellate him.
    There are of course other troubling thoughts: who is tRump going to replace her with? Someone even worse?
    What is in her itinerary next? Maybe she should just move to Pisrael and make it official. After all Haley was the best U.N. ambassador Pisrael has had so far.
    How many does that make now, that have resigned from this wretched administration?
    One other question: what was the REAL reason for her resignation?

    • John, she wouldn’t have had the appointment, without having to wipe her chin off dozens of times.

    • They are floating his daughter/wife Ivanka.

      The REAL reason for the resignation? We’ll never know. I’m going to try to pin the tail on the donkey and say that while his mouse of a spouse, Sarah’le was not performing her wifely duties . . . since she was up on FRAUD CHANGES since 2016 and her all impotent husband couldn’t do shit about it . . . he had a little too much bitch coming from that harpy . . . and played hide the Hebrew National sausage with Darling Nikki.

      OMIGOSH . . . think of knocking out two birds with one stone (they love them some two-fers). Ivanka becomes the next UN Ambassador . . . that would be GREAT. She can have Jared tag along, and maybe Satanyahoo and he can cuddle all up in the bed together, again. Remember when . . . Satanyahoo had a “sleep over” in teen boy Jared Kushner’s bed?

      What? There was no room in the inn?

    • To see her speech at aipac last year, you will not be surprised that bibi won’t let her go to far, every member of the audience were elbow nudging, “theirs our next president”.

      If you watch it, have the barf bag ready.

  6. HORSES FOR COURSES

    Nothing becomes her legacy at the UN than her leaving it. All the rest was balderdash and the bare-faced criminality of an Indian *thug.

    Her pathological defense of Zionist Israel was an affront to common logic and basic human decency.

    She helped drag America into the mire as only to be expected of a harridan and diplomatic side-kick of a horse’s ass from the Augean Stables overflowing – as Hercules discovered to his cost, with the staple political fare of mountains of horse manure. Now, after Nikki Haley and Samantha Power just how low is Trump prepared to go beneath the pits of hell to replace them. One thing we do know, it won’t be human. Might VT suggest to Trump, a mime artist of the school of Marcel Marceau we can call ‘Bipi the Clown’ to go with ‘Bibi the Clown’ because nothing surer it will not be us of the US she represents – not a word, but Israel, and the dumb bitch (what else!) won’t have a word either of Hebrew. But, pinch your noses, brew it will be, a witches brew to cast the traditional pro-Israel spells in the halls of the UN echoing the witches of Macbeth:

    “Fair is foul, and foul is fair:
    Hover through the fog and filthy air.”

    • Love the video intro!! Ding Dong . . . but that didn’t stop Dorothy from having to yellow brick road it. And of course, she tells the three empty head, heartless, and fearful male co-horts — they HAD brains, hearts and resolve all along! And Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man that he didn’t, didn’t already have!

      I remember reading about that par’tay. Yes, she did do that . . . and I’m sure she got as drunk as a SCOTUS frat boyz do — ’cause that’s our freedumb loving culture.

      Did she get Kaiser rolled in Satanyahoo’s luxury digs in . . . Caesarea?!?

      Kaiser is German for Caesar. I wonder if Satanyahoo is a ‘Lil Kaiser, Kaiser.

      Oh, I do hope Darling Nikki writes a tell all and we can compare it with the toad stool found one dark stormy night on Humpty Trumpty. PLEASE Santa . . . if you’re listening, can you get your little elfs to work up that manuscript, just in time for their holidays. Ask Barbara Jr.’s new husband to pen it.

      Lie down with dogs . . . you get up with fleas. Flees?

    • M.O.A.B., don’t forget, during the celebration, who turns up next. Are we in for an even worse wicked witch of the west?

    • @JohnZ — I thought the same thing . . . cue Bob Marley, “I shot the sheriff, but I didn’t shoot the deputy” . . . the wicked witch’s sister.

      Reminds me of a dream I had about two weeks ago that I didn’t understand. NOW I get it.

      We’ll be fine. Just don’t forget the H2O {wink}

  7. I guess JTA is the Jewish Telegraphic Agency; had to look up the initials.
    The description of Haley as a moderate on Trump’s team has to be laughable!
    Th obvious question is, ‘Did she go or was she pushed’?
    I anticipate later articles will elaborate.

    • Yes, all sort of thoughts do manifest and “aroused”???

      The greasy black haired hot mutton chop had her keg tapped by Satanyahoo, and got the cold shoulder. End of story.

      Women are labeled as play things for the male’s ego.

      Tsk, tsk.

      The “hot tamale” . . . how very demeaning, to say the least.

      I can’t stand that bitch, don’t get me wrong. But, why . . . OH WHY . . . are women branded with any type of tramp stamp?
