The Sulphurous Attraction of Nikki Haley Leads Back to Big Brother and the Globalists


by Boyd D. Cathey, The Unz Review:

Leading MAGA pundit and former Donald Trump administration official Steve Bannon calls them “the Keebler Elves.” I prefer the term “Munchkins,” or maybe “the Five Dwarfs”—No, it’s now just four dwarfs with Tim Scott bowing out: they are the Republican candidates participating in the charade, AKA “the GOP debates,” and desperately hoping—grasping—striving to displace Donald Trump as the frontrunner to oppose brain-dead Joe Biden in the 2024 election.


The Never Trumpers, the Establishment “conservative” think tanks and their journals and groupies, many among the Republican congressional leadership and office holders, have, for the past year, frantically beat the drums for someone—anyone—who could credibly challenge Trump, someone with the bona fides and a glossy resume, someone who could rein in rising MAGA populist traditionalism which threatens the once thought unassailable perch of the Managerial globalists.

At first, spearheaded by the powerful Murdoch media outlets, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Post, and Fox News, the buzz among them was centered on Ron DeSantis. DeSantis would be the “giant killer.” DeSantis, it was argued, could enunciate the major popular Trumpian themes, even at times apparently go around to the Donald’s right, but without the verbal and personality “baggage” (according to them). And even more importantly, although he could sound a lot like a church deacon version of Trump, the Florida governor would not in reality threaten the essential control by the elites, at least not like Trump would.

But somewhere along the trail to Neverland, DeSantis fell flat, in no way denting President Trump’s unsurmountable lead in the polls. And the elite makers and shakers began to cast about looking for a new giant killer.

And their increasingly desperate gaze settled upon none other than the former governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley, nee’ Nimarata Nikki Randhawa, perhaps the most ambitious and the most flagrant political chameleon the American nation has extruded in many a year.

Once considered a potential running mate for GOP standard bearer Mitt Romney and a determined opponent of Donald Trump, Haley then sidled up to him after his election to secure appointment as US Ambassador to the United Nation. Prior to the June 2015 Dylann Roof massacre she was a self-proclaimed defender of Southern heritage (and the flag representing it) in South Carolina, but then becoming a zealous detractor, stating: “These grounds [the State Capital] are a place that everybody should feel a part of. What I realized now more than ever is people were driving by and felt hurt and pain. No one should feel pain.”

The list of changes in her positions and posture are dramatic even in the context of American politics. A catalogue of Haley’s calculated swervings and apparent course alterations could fill a plump briefcase. And all blatantly supporting her extremely, overweening ambition.

Her latest maneuver is to become the anointed champion of the DC Republican elites, the ensconced GOP establishment which fears the Great Disruptor Donald Trump even more than a senile and controlled Joe Biden. She is making all the acceptable cooing noises, the appropriate stands on issues so dear to conservative and Neocon elites, those forming “Conservatism Inc.”

And the elites of “Conservatism Inc.” have noticed approvingly.
