Who Is Nikki Haley?


Who Is Nikki Haley?

By Julio Severo
U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley withdrew the United States from the United Nations Human Rights Council. Her argument is that this council has an anti-Israel bias. Her decision was absolutely correct. In fact, the United State should have made this decision many decades ago.

But Haley was not correct to add Syria to her argument by saying that this council has passed more resolutions this year condemning Israel than Syria — meaning that Syria deserves to be especially targeted for attacks in the United Nations.
Why did she single Syria, which is not a member of this council, and did not single Saudi Arabia, which is a member of this council?
If the United Nations Human Rights Council is voting consistently against Israel, it is because its Saudi member and other radical members want so.
Since 2011, Syria has been a victim of the military actions of the U.S. government, firstly under Obama and now under President Donald Trump. The great Syrian sin is not to be aligned to the U.S. interests. Saudi Arabia was not singled out for attacks by Haley because, even though a sponsor of the worldwide Islamic terrorism, it is aligned to the U.S. interests. So, blame a U.S. enemy (Syria) for the anti-Israel hatred of a U.S. ally (Saudi Arabia) in the United Nations!
Yet, this is not the first time the U.S. and Saudi Arabia have aligned interests. When U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was creating the United Nations in 1945, he assured Saudi Arabia that he would not allow the creation of Israel. So the creator of the U.N. — Roosevelt — did not want the creation of Israel, because he had in mind Saudi interests. If the U.N. today opposes Israel to serve Saudi interests, it is doing just the will of its creator.
If Haley were a U.S. Ambassador under the U.N. creator, he would commend her for not singling out Saudi Arabia for attacks. But he would certainly fire her for opposing Saudi interests in the United Nations Human Rights Council against Israel.
It was a great step to withdraw the U.S. from this council. Yet, it would be a vastly more necessary step to disavow its wicked creation. The U.S. cannot disavow its own paternity over the U.N., but it can and should disavow its creation and denounce Roosevelt.
Anyway, Haley would get in trouble if she tried to oppose anti-Israel Saudi interests in a Roosevelt administration.
But even in the Trump administration, her interests are not always aligned with Trump.
Last April Haley was involved in a public quarrel after Trump’s adviser Larry Kudlow suggested she had some “momentary confusion” regarding U.S. sanctions on Russia. Haley responded, “With all due respect, I don’t get confused.”
She supports an increase of the anti-Russian sanctions Obama had initiated. She wanted more anti-Russia sanctions in a time Trump did not, and the result was confusion.
Haley, 46, has been ambassador to the U.N. since January 27, 2017.
There are other things you should know about Haley.
She was named one of Time’s 100 most influential people in 2016. So if she is so important, you should know her better, because if there is a woman who can achieve the U.S. presidency, it is her.
When she assumed office in 2011, Haley became the first female governor of South Carolina. The Republican was also the first minority to hold that office. She was endorsed by Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee. Romney was the first governor to approve homosexual “marriage” in Massachusetts. But Haley is not to blame for Republican liberals supporting her.
She should be blamed for what she has done herself. And, with all due respect to her, I think she does get confused.
In 2015, Haley signed a bill to move a Confederate flag moved from the state Capitol grounds, adhering to demands of liberals in the state who saw the conservative flag as a symbol of hate. She sided with left-wingers against conservatives. She did exactly what liberal governors did in other states.
“This flag, while an integral part of our past, does not represent the future of our great state,” Haley said at the time. I can understand her lack of roots in the issue because, even though having been born and raised in South Carolina, Haley’s true roots are traced to her Indian immigrant parents. The Confederate flag or another U.S. conservative symbol has no integral part of her past.
“To destroy a people you must sever their roots,” wrote Alexander Solzhenitsyn, the Russian laureate who spent eight years in a Soviet labor camp for his opposition to the Marxist system. He made this statement in regard to the Soviets’ efforts to sever the Russian people from their history, including their Christian history.
Didn’t Haley do the same thing?
As far as I know, the Confederates have good traditions. About 10,000 Confederates moved to Brazil after the end of the Civil War in 1865 and they, who were Protestant, founded schools and preached the Gospel in Brazil. They were the direct inspiration for the Brazilian government to create the first public-school system. Before the Confederates, the poor had no access to schooling and education in Brazil. If the Brazilian poor have today some education, it is thanks to the Confederates. Is this not a good tradition? If Haley does not see this way, what is there in her mind?
Nikki Haley
Even though a Christian, Haley says she still honors her family’s Sikh religion.
She was married in two ceremonies. One ceremony was held in a Methodist church and another was a Sikh ceremony.
Haley attends a Methodist church. But she told The New York Times in a 2010 profile that she would sometimes attend Sikh services, as she was raised in that faith.
The Sikh religion, which is a combination of the concepts of Hinduism and Sufi Islam, believes in reincarnation.
The founder of Sikhism, Guru Nanak, taught that god (Vahiguru) is already inside every person, but can be accessed and known through only contemplation. Very similar to New Age stuff.
In his The Popular Encyclopedia of Apologetics, author Ed Hindson said, “Because Sikhism is in complete contradistinction to Christianity, the list of disagreements between Sikhism and Christianity is long. Sikhism denies the incarnation, the Trinity, and the Bible. Sikhism affirms reincarnation and denies the reality of sin. Even the nature of God as the uncreated Creator is not the same.”
Nikki Haley
So if a Christian cannot be an adherent of Sikhism at the same time, what is Haley doing by attending Sikh services? With all due respect to Haley, I think she is confused about spiritual matters.
I do not know what Haley calls Christianity, but Christianity with the Sikh religion is a strange mixture, strange fire and unequal yoke.
If she eventually reaches the U.S. presidency, her medley Christian/Sikh (actually, sick) spirituality will get her more confused, for if the body of a Christian is the temple of the Holy Spirit, how can this temple share its premises to the spirits (demons) of Sikhism?
Nikki Haley
If she could not respect the conservative roots of South Carolina and instead respected liberals’ whining, what could a possible President Haley do to national conservative roots when confronted with liberal pressure?
She didn’t endorse Trump in the GOP primary in 2016. In fact, she attacked him. She implied criticism of Trump when she said, “During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. We must resist that temptation.” Trump, who understood the “implied” criticism, answered, “I am! I’m very angry because I hate what’s happening to our country.”
Headlines would accurately say that, for Nikki Haley, any Republican could be a candidate, but Trump.
Haley endorsed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who is a neocon who consistently wants war with Russia. She has the same neocon feelings.
Trump said in a tweet, “The people of South Carolina are embarrassed by Nikki Haley!”
Eventually, Trump put in his administration Haley and the director of the McCain Institute — two avid neocons. He did exactly what he condemned in 2016.
Today as the representative of the United States in the United Nations, Haley has used her position to celebrate pride in sodomy (homosexuality). Other evangelical Christians in the Trump administration are doing the same celebration. State Secretary Mike Pompeo, who says that he is an evangelical Christian, declared June as a Homosexual Month, and Haley joined him saying:
“We join our LGBTI friends around the world in celebrating #Pride Month. The United States supports the LGBTI community in standing up for their human rights.”
My public answer to her:
“Utterly shameful, Nikki! You say you are a Protestant Christian, but are you celebrating ‘pride’ in sodomy? God said, ‘Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is abomination.’ (Leviticus 18:22) There is no pride in an abomination.”
No real Christian or conservative would ever defend celebration of homosexual perversion.
Are there positive points in Haley? Sure.
Haley says that the United Nations is useless because, under Islamic control (including Saudi, even though she does not include specifically Saudis in her attacks), it is persistently anti-Israel. I agree with her. Yet, how cannot she remember that, under neocon control, the U.S. government has been equally persistent in an anti-Russia stance, even now when Russia is much more conservative? The U.S. has treated conservative Russia not much differently as Muslim nations treat Israel.
You could understand Obama and his sanctions on Russia, including his anti-Russia mockery. But you cannot understand how Haley, who alleges that she is conservative, can continue Obama’s nasty behavior against a Russia which has fought against abortion and the homosexual agenda at the United Nations. Just as she did to the conservative Confederate flag, she is doing to conservative Russia.
Can she remember that she uses her position in the United Nations to condemn Syria, which has been a victim of ISIS, al-Qaida and has suffered a violent civil war provoked by the U.S. government under Obama, but she does not condemn Saudi Arabia, which is directly supporting the carnage in Syria, which has one of the oldest Christian communities in the world? Why protect the Islamic dictatorship of Saudi Arabia and attack its victim, Syria? Cannot she be enough compassionate to listen to the old Syrian Christian community, which has largely opposed her decisions against Syria?
Can she remember that the U.S. government traditionally values Saudi Arabia above Israel? In fact, in his first international trip the first nation Trump visited was not Israel. It was Saudi Arabia.
Can she remember that the United Nations was not founded by Muslims and its headquarters is not in Saudi Arabia or another Islamic nation? UN, whose headquarters is in New York, was founded by U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who also valued Saudi Arabia above Israel. So it is no wonder that, following the wishes of its American founder, the United Nations has always put Saudi Arabia and its wishes above Israel.
Just as anti-Israel Muslims (a pleonasm) are a threat in the United Nations, anti-Russian neocons (another pleonasm) are a threat in the U.S. government.
If Haley can get along with Saudi Arabia, which bans Christianity and the Bible and is the main sponsor of Islamic terror around the world, including ISIS, why cannot she get along with conservative Russia, which does not ban Christianity and the Bible and fights ISIS?
If Haley eventually reaches the U.S. presidency, her medley Christian/neocon ideology will get her more confused, for if Jesus Christ never worked to expand the military interests of the Roman Empire, how can “Christian” Haley work for the military interests of neocons? What compatibility is there between Jesus Christ and neocons?
Jesus had plenty of opportunities to support the military interests of the Roman Empire and he had had plenty of opportunities to induce his disciples to support the military interests of the Roman Empire. But he did not do so. Why is “Christian” Haley doing it?
If Trump could say in on Twitter, “The people of South Carolina are embarrassed by Nikki Haley!” in 2016, her attitude today against the Confederate flag and conservative Russia has equally embarrassed real conservatives.
I think I can offer some hard advice to her and to Trump too, because even though he quit his 2016 antineocon speech, I continue following his antineocon example. Yet, in Haley’s case, she has never quit his pro-neocon stances.
I have “nudged” Trump and Nikki Haley on Twitter:
Julio Severo to Trump: Please, make America independent of Saudi Arabia and its cursed petrodollars.
Julio Severo to Trump: Please fire neocon Nikki Haley. Hire an antineocon conservative to denounce the Islamic terrorist dictatorship of Saudi Arabia. Haley has no courage to do it.
Nikki Haley: RT @USUN: “It takes great bravery for the Iranian people to use the power of their voice against their government, especially when that government has a long history of murdering its own people who dare to speak the truth… All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause.”
Julio Severo: Hey, Nikki, could you encourage the CIA to do similar “people’s” revolution in Saudi Arabia?
I am sure that what moves Haley to support Israel is her Christian faith. This makes sense.
But I am not sure what moves her to support the violent Islamic dictatorship of Saudi Arabia and disregard and even attack Saudi victims, including Syria. This makes no sense. Certainly, it is not her Christian faith. This is her neocon faith, and neoconservatism involves incessant wars to support the U.S. military industrial complex in wars that often massacre Christians and make profits, expanding the neocon imperialism and Sunni Islam — the kind of Islam practiced in Saudi Arabia.
I am not sure also what moved her to disregard the Confederate traditions and conservative Russia. It makes no sense. Certainly, it is not her Christian faith. It is her respect for the whims of liberals, who hate both the Confederate conservatism and the Russian conservatism.
If Haley intends to continue using the name of Jesus, she should know that God is jealous. The Bible says:
“Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, ‘The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously’?” (James 4:4-5 NKJV)
It can mean: “Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with Sikhism and neoconservatism is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of Sikhism and neoconservatism makes himself an enemy of God.” Or she serves only Jesus or Sikhism. Or she serves only Jesus or neoconservatism, which is the “religion” of the warmongers.
Real Christianity has no mixture with Sikhism, reincarnation and neoconservatism. This is why I am concerned about Haley, whose Protestant Christianity has exactly such spiritually harmful mixture. I do not know in the Methodist church, but any such mixed “Christian” would have been a case for spiritual deliverance for Jesus and His apostles.
Because Time named her one of the 100 most influential people in 2016, she has a real chance to achieve the U.S. presidency. As far as Israel is concerned, she would be an excellent option. But as far as neocon ambitions are concerned — including opposition to the Christian conservatism in the U.S. and Russia —, she is far away from being a good choice. And her mixed spirituality would eventually produce unforeseen disasters.
