Nikki Haley Says Management Of Coronavirus Not Trump’s Responsibility, But Governors

Published

on

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley recently stated that victories and failures in the battle against the coronavirus that has swept across the country in the last month falls on the shoulders of governors and is there responsibility to handle, not the president’s.

And you know what, she’s absolutely right.

Haley, who’s most recent posting included being a United States ambassador to the United Nations, penned a piece for the NY Times that was published on Wednesday that delved into the reasons why governors are the ones ultimately responsible for responding to the coronavirus crisis.

“In today’s crisis, governors from both parties have exemplified strong leadership,” she wrote. “They know their residents and their state’s needs better than anyone in the federal government. In the state-federal partnership, governors are in the best position to control what happens on the ground, better than any president could be.”

Haley explained that governors are responsible for connecting federal efforts from organizations such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency to the cities and counties that have the most need. She added that governors are supposed to be aware of their states’ supplies for emergency situations and have the relationships with local leaders to best address the situation.

“As our highest nationally elected leader, of course President Trump has enormous responsibility in this unprecedented crisis, and he is marshaling the federal response on a massive scale. But in implementing plans to save people’s lives and keep our economy afloat, look no further than the governors,” Haley penned.

Haley went on to say that the coronavirus serves as a reminder of the importance of federalism and why it’s so critical to allow individual states and their governments to handle these sort of situations noting, “Governors are the most successful when they are given the flexibility to lead. The federal government can provide the resources, but it should not take away too much flexibility. New York is not New Mexico. South Dakota is not South Carolina.”

“Our Constitution has it right: Keep control and decision making close to the people. We are seeing that play out in every state today. We face a painful challenge, but we will get through it. When we do, we will look back and see that governors rose to meet the challenge, and they did it best when Washington did not impose too much on them,” Haley continued.

Haley couldn’t be more spot on in her assessment of the importance of federalism. The Tenth Amendment of the Constitution makes it clear that the federal government has certain powers and only those powers that are listed are to be considered the domain of the central government. All other powers are reserved for the states themselves.

On top of that, it’s more expedient for these kind of crises to be handled by government that is closer to the people being directly effected by the situation at hand.

In that regard, Trump has handled this situation perfectly by avoiding a national lockdown order and letting states handle things individually.

Speaking the truth these days means you’re liable to get suspended, fired, “cancelled,” and/or seriously physically injured – depending on the liberal that you have offended. This is what happens when the criminally insane are allowed to run the asylum. From The Daily Wire: A New York university has suspended an education student from mandatory teaching programs for posting Instagram videos expressing conservative ideology. State University of New York (SUNY) Geneseo sent an email to education student Owen Stevens placing him on suspension from his field teaching programs after his peers uncovered videos of him preaching conservative dogma. The school claims that Stevens’ videos “call into question” his ability to “maintain a classroom environment protecting the mental and emotional well-being of all of [his] students.” According to a copy of Steven’s suspension obtained by The Daily Wire, the education student will remain suspended from participating in in-school field experiences and courses that have field experiences until he completes a “remediation plan.” The remediation plan includes taking down his Instagram videos, toning down his social media presence, and attending school-sanctioned training. Stevens said he would not take part in “remediation.” Good. He shouldn’t. How is it acceptable for a person to be punished for talking facts? How are people that flipping offended, nowadays!?

House Passes Equality Act, Which Will Hurt ‘Religious Freedom, Women’s Sports’ & More

Party of ‘science’…

How can Democrats claim to “follow the science” when they believe there are more than two genders? Shouldn’t all their opinions be disregarded automatically based on that alone? These people are out of control. What’s worse is that they believe they are doing the right thing. From Washington Times: House Democrats on Thursday passed the Equality Act, taking their cues from President Biden as he pushes transgender rights to the forefront over warnings of dire repercussions for religious freedom, women’s sports and female privacy. The bill, which would add sex, gender identity and sexual orientation to the 1964 Civil Rights Act, was approved 224-206, with three Republicans voting in favor of the measure, a drop from the eight who supported the measure in 2019. The previous legislation had little chance with Republicans in charge of the Senate and President Trump in the White House, but Mr. Biden has made transgender rights a priority, starting with a landmark Day One executive order to combat discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation.
