Nikki Haley Is Showing The World What Leadership Means

Nikki Haley Sets UN on Fire: If You Don’t Move, Our Military Will

Nikki Haley Sets UN on Fire: If You Don't Move, Our Military Will
One of the pleasantly surprising bright spots of President Donald Trump’s administration has been the appointment of Nikki Haley as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, who has taken a decidedly blunt and no-nonsense, call-it-like-we-see-it American attitude to the international organization.
Haley delivered yet another fiery speech to the U.N. Security Council on Monday, in which she placed the council on notice for its utter failure to maintain a temporary cease-fire agreement in Syria. She explicitly called out Russia and Syria, as well as Iran, for their roles in the continued fighting in violation of a recent Security Council resolution, according to TheBlaze.
Her eight-minute speech boiled down to one pointed message: If the U.N. doesn’t do anything to address the contempt with which the Security Council resolution was treated by Russia and Syria, the U.S. military will.
As Haley began, she noted all of the promises made by Russia in regard to enforcing the resolution which imposed a 30-day cease-fire in the area of Ghouta, a suburb of Damascus, and pointed out how fighting and bombing was still ongoing in spite of the agreement that Russia claimed to support.
She further noted that Russia and Syria had taken advantage of a “loophole” in the agreement that allowed for military action against terrorist organizations like al-Qaida and the Islamic State group by essentially declaring all opposition groups and civilians in Ghouta to be “terrorists” and open to attack.

“This is no cease-fire,” Haley asserted. “This is the Assad regime, Iran and Russia continuing to wage war against their political opponents.”
“If we can’t save families that haven’t seen the sun for weeks because they have been hiding underground to escape barrel bombs,” she continued, “then the Security Council is as impotent as its worst critics say it is.”
“When the international community consistently fails to act, there are times when states are compelled to take their own action,” Haley said, as she reminded the council of the U.S. missile strikes in April 2017 in response to Syrian chemical attacks on civilians.
“We warn any nation that is determined to impose its will through chemical attacks and inhuman suffering, most especially the outlaw Syrian regime, the United States remains prepared to act if we must,” she added. “It is not the path we prefer, but it is a path we have demonstrated we will take, and we are prepared to take again.”
You can watch Haley’s tough speech right here. Take note of the tone and occasional sharp side-eye toward the Russian and Syrian representatives as she calls them out for their duplicity in front of the spineless council.
UN Security Council Meeting On The Ceasefire In Syria
According to The Hill, Haley’s warning to the U.N. Security Council came amid reports heavy fighting and bombings in and around Ghouta — which were preventing the delivery of humanitarian aid and evacuation of sick and wounded civilians from the besieged city — as well as allegations of chemical attacks using chlorine gas in the area.

It is worth noting that Haley was not entirely alone in her threat to the U.N. that the U.S. would take military action to enforce the cease-fire if necessary. Defense Secretary James Mattis informed the Syrian government that “it would be unwise for them to use weaponized gas” in response to the alleged chemical attacks, and added that Trump had “full political maneuver room” to take any sort of action he deemed necessary to bring peace to the war-torn region.

Haley was also backed up by none other than French President Emmanuel Macron, who stated recently at a news conference in India in response to the alleged chemical attacks in Ghouta that France was prepared to carry out airstrikes and other military action to halt the travesty and enforce the cease-fire.
Haley, on behalf of Trump, has made it crystal clear to the U.N. that the era of “strategic patience” and leading from behind are over and done with, and if the international community doesn’t see fit to do what must be done to obtain peace and stability, America has no problem rolling up her sleeves to do what is necessary.
Please share this on Facebook so everyone can see how Nikki Haley just put Russia, Syria, Iran and the rest of the U.N. Security Council on notice for their failure to uphold an agreed-upon temporary cease-fire in Syria.

McCabe's Attorney Fights Back--Is It A Preemptive Move?

Michael Bromwich, who is representing former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, released a lengthy statement late Friday where he called his client’s termination “deeply disturbing.”
Bromwich was inspector general at the Department of Justice from 1994 to 1999.

What did he say?

“I have never before seen the type of rush to judgment — and rush to summary punishment — that we have witnessed in this case,” Bromwich wrote, before condemning the timing of McCabe’s firing — just two days before his planned retirement.
“This is simply not the way such matters are generally handled in the DOJ or the FBI,” he said. “It is deeply disturbing.”
Bromwich added the process to take down McCabe begins at the top of the government with President Donald Trump, who Bromwich said used his Twitter account for “drive-by attacks” on McCabe.
“These attacks began in the summer of 2017 and accelerated after it was disclosed that Mr. McCabe would be a corroborating witness against the President,” Bromwich wrote, adding the White House continued its “attacks” on McCabe this week when the White House press secretary claimed McCabe has shown “very troubling behavior” and is “by most accounts a bad actor.”
Bromwich explained:
This vile and defamatory statement is fully consistent with the attacks on Mr. McCabe that have come from the White House since last summer. And it was quite clearly designed to put inappropriate pressure on the Attorney General to act accordingly. This intervention by the White House in the DOJ disciplinary process is unprecedented, deeply unfair, and dangerous.
The former IG then went on to argue his team was given short notice and limited information after the Office of the Inspector General issued a preliminary report into its findings. The OIG has been investigating the DOJ’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe and Trump-Russia probe since last January. McCabe was a central figure in both investigations.
“With so much at stake, this process has fallen far short of what Mr. McCabe deserved,” Bromwich wrote.
“This concerted effort to accelerate the process in order to beat the ticking clock of his scheduled retirement violates any sense of decency and basic principles of fairness. It should make all federal government employees, who continue to work in an Administration that insults, debases, and abuses them, shudder in the knowledge that they could be next,” he concluded.

What did Bromwich previously say?

Writing in the Washington Post last January, Bromwich said inspector general Michael Horowitz’s internal investigation into the DOJ and former FBI Director James Comey was “welcome news.”
It’s that investigation that led to McCabe’s termination.

Democrats Honoring McCabe Give The Lawbreaker A Job

Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe won’t lose his $1.8 million pension benefits if fellow Democrat supporters have their way.
U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe Friday, just two days before his retirement was set to take effect, according to published reports.
Fellow Democrats rushed to McCabe’s defense, and some even offered him a job so he can still collect his pension.
Rep. Tim Walz (D-Minn.) announced on Twitter that he would give McCabe a job for a few days.
Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wisc.) also offered McCabe a job.
“I could use a good two-day report on the biggest crime families in Washington, D.C.,” he wrote on Twitter.

What did Trump say?

Here’s what President Donald Trump had to say about the firing:

What led to this?

The recommendation to fire McCabe came from the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility, which is led by FBI Assistant Director Candice Will, Fox News reported.
McCabe was named acting director of the agency after Trump fired former FBI director James Comey in May. McCabe held the position for three months, then stepped down and announced he would retire in March. Since that time, he still remained on the FBI payroll.
In addition to criticisms about Comey’s handling of the Russia probe and the Clinton email investigation, the FBI recently came under fire after it admitted to receiving a tip about the Parkland, Florida, killer prior to the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
A tipster said the killed had expressed a desire to kill people, exhibited erratic behavior and made disturbing social media posts, according to the federal law enforcement agency. But the information was not assessed and forwarded to the FBI’s field office in Miami.
The shooting left a total of 17 students and staff dead.

McCabe Firing Was NOT Political

Despite the mainstream media narrative surrounding Andrew McCabe’s Friday termination, the now-former deputy FBI director wasn’t fired for political reasons.
Instead, it was an internal Department of Justice investigation lead by inspector general Michael Horowitz that led to McCabe’s dismissal.

What does the narrative say?

In the immediate aftermath of Attorney General Jeff Session’s decision to dismiss McCabe, the media has propagated the narrative that McCabe’s termination was a political decision made to appease President Donald Trump.
On Saturday, the media was full of stories that pushed the angle that McCabe’s firing was political and Trump is to blame. Indeed, those whose comments were most widely shared and reported by the media blamed Trump and framed the story as another move by the White House to obstruct special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough tweeted: “Everything goes back to Trump obstructing justice and undermining the investigation into his shameful behavior. Now he’s pressured the Attorney General of the United States to fire a 24 year FBI veteran…”
The comments of former CIA Director John Brennan were some of the most shared. He claimed Trump used McCabe as a “scapegoat.”
Eric Holder, attorney general under former President Barack Obama, levied similar claimed to those made by Brennan and Scarborough.
CNN’s Chris Cillizaa added to the hysteria:
Despite all of the claims and hysteria centering on Trump and his disdain for Mueller’s investigation, the truth of why McCabe was fired just days before his planned retirement has nothing at all to do with the president.

What’s the truth?

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe upon a recommendation from the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility to terminate McCabe’s employment.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the OPR made the recommendation based on findings from IG Horowitz’s investigation, who discovered McCabe “authorized the disclosure of sensitive information to a Wall Street Journal reporter about the investigation into the Clinton Foundation.”
McCabe later lied about authorizing the leak during questioning from IG investigators.
The Washington Post further explained:
[Horowitz] has for some time been working on a report that blasts McCabe for allowing two high-ranking bureau officials to sit down with the Wall Street Journal as the news outlet prepared a report in 2016 on an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s family foundation, then misleading the inspector general’s team about his actions. A person familiar with the matter said Horowitz’s findings are what sparked the Office of Professional Responsibility’s recommendation, which was first reported by the New York Times. Horowitz’s report has not been released, and McCabe denies having misled anyone, a person familiar with the case said.
