And there it is…

Many names were floated to be Nikki Haley’s replacement at the United Nations.

Ultimately, this is a zero-sum game.

Only one man or woman can win.

Heather Nauert is President Trump’s choice.

Nauert went from ABC to Fox News to State Department spokeswoman to (most likely) UN ambassador.

Not a bad resume, huh?

Republican John James ran for U.S. Senate against Debbie Stabenow in Michigan.

He lost.

However, the race was much closer than a lot of people would’ve figured.

James, who has two Master’s degrees from Penn State University and a third from the University of Michigan, served as an Army captain during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

He was considered to replace Haley at the United Nations.

From Bloomberg:

President Donald Trump is considering John James, a Michigan businessman who lost election to the U.S. Senate this year, to replace UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, according to two people familiar with the matter.

[…]

James was at the White House last week talking about an administration post with Trump, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Vice President Mike Pence, two people said.

While on the subject of Michigan, Democrat Congresswoman-elect Elissa Slotkin said Barack Obama once told her that party comes before country.

Always!

Check out the video of Slotkin introducing Obama…

Slotkin: “I served two presidents, Republican and Democrat, and I was there the day Barack Obama came into the White House. And he kept me on because he knows what we all know: that it must be party before country. Always.

WATCH:

Slotkin was later corrected by a woman in the crowd, reminding her that country comes before party.

Slotkin: “Oh, I’m sorry. I was like, I was like, this is a really tough room.

While at the UN, CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill, A Democrat, appeared to call for the elimination of Israel while endorsing violence against the majority-Jewish country.

Surely, CNN will reprimand Hill.

Right?

Check it…

From Daily Wire:

Far-left CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill appeared to defend using violence to resist Israel and appeared to call for the elimination of Israel on Wednesday while speaking to the United Nations.

Hill: “Contrary to western mythology, black resistance to American apartheid did not come purely through Gandhi and non-violence. Rather, slave revolts, self-defense, and tactics otherwise divergent from Dr. King or Mahatma Gandhi were equally important to preserving safety and attaining freedom.

Hill: “If we are in true solidarity, we must allow the Palestinian people the same range of opportunity and political possibility. We must recognize the right of an occupied people to defend themselves. We must prioritize peace, but we must not romanticize or fetishize it. We must advocate and promote non-violence at every opportunity, but cannot endorse narrow politics of respectability that shames Palestinians for resisting, for refusing to do nothing in the face of state violence and ethnic cleansing.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
