Another Surprise! Liberal Oligarch Charles Koch Backs Liberal Neocon Retread Nikki Haley for President

I did not see this coming.

Actually, I didn't see this coming. Because I haven't thought about Charles Koch since 2015.

But yeah, he's backing Indian Tracey Flick. Because he can't stand the idea of someone campaigning to roll back the left's culture war gains or seal the border, which he wants wide, wide open. The only priorities that Republicans are allowed to fight for are tax breaks for billionaires and unlimited political power for billionaires and the aggressively weird form of nihilistic transgender libertarianism libertinism that weird billionaires tend to support.

Koch network backs Nikki Haley in the Republican race: Group associated with billionaire Charles says it will do 'everything' to make her next president and snubs Trump with just 48 days until the Iowa caucus

Americans for Prosperity Action said Haley was best placed to beat Joe Biden

It means she now has the help of a well-funded super PAC in the primaries

But she still faces a huge job in overhauling clear frontrunner Donald Trump

By Rob Crilly, Senior U.S. Political Reporter For Dailymail.Com


The conservative U.S. political network headed by billionaire Charles Koch on Tuesday endorsed Nikki Haley for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, saying she was the best candidate to beat President Joe Biden next year.

It is the latest boost for the former South Carolina governor who has seen her stock rise with strong debate performances and improving poll numbers.

Her traditional conservative positions also align with the Koch network, which uses its money to push for tax cuts and less government regulation.

Setting out its reasons, the group said beating former President Donald Trump in the primaries was a top priority.

'Between her surging to second place in the polls since August and being well-positioned amongst supporters of the other candidates, she is in a strong position to gather more support,' said Emily Seidel, a senior adviser to the Koch group's Americans for Prosperity Action, in a memo.

'In addition, our internal polling consistently shows that Nikki Haley is by far the strongest candidate Republicans could put up against Joe Biden in a general election -- winning every key battleground state and up nationally by nearly 10 points.'

She said polls also showed that Republicans were ready to move on from Trump.

...

It will back her campaign with the sort of field workers, call centers and direct mail operations that she has lacked until now.

'I'm honored to have the support of Americans for Prosperity Action, including its millions of grass-roots members all across the country,' said Haley. 'A.F.P. Action's members know that there is too much at stake in this election to sit on the sidelines.'

The DeSantis campaign could not disguise its irritation.

Spokesman Andrew Romeo posted on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter: 'Congratulations to Donald Trump on securing the Koch endorsement. Like clockwork, the pro-open borders, pro-jail break bill establishment is lining up behind a moderate who has no mathematical pathway of defeating the former president.'

Koch's net worth is estimated at $50 billion by Forbes.

Speaking of twisted, lunatic billionaires with hateful agendas: Enjoy the community note slapped on this propaganda from George Soros' scumbag get.

I'm torn on whether the establishment understands that it has completely lost the base and will never, ever get it back.

I lean towards yes, and they're trying to just gouge big dollar donors for every penny then can while stuffing bills with their pork (not officially pork, just, you know, pork with another name).

Nikki Haley is just the latest (and surely not the last) effort to steal hundreds of millions of dollars from donors big and small without any effort or intention of following through on any pursuit of any policy at all.

42 She was the guest of honor at a Paul Ryan GOPe fundraiser a couple of weeks ago. Big Wall Street money started getting behind her, too. And her attacks are focused on DeSantis, not Trump.

It was noted here a couple of months ago:

Trump neuters DeSantis, the GOPe (and Democrats) remove Trump from contention. Colorado is already working towards removing him from the ballot at the state level. I doubt there are nearly the same pesky laws involved in the (R) party operations.

Haley is the nominee.

It really is ideal for the GOPe.

Same as the mid-terms, returning to minority status where no one expects them to accomplish anything is their natural and ideal state. I assume Nikki is planned to be the nominee for that very reason.

Whole thing is so stupid... yet... not only in court, but being taken seriously.

There is a Federal Statute, which defines insurrection. It would seem to me that he would have to be convicted under that Statute, for a legal finding that he is guilty of insurrection...

Note, he has not ever been charged under that statute.

124 So I bit the bullet and read that drivel from "LA Progressive".

His whole argument is that the RATE of murder is rising faster in rural areas than in urban areas. (And only a select number of urban vs. rural as well.)

So, first: when your murder rate is 1 (per 100K) and it goes to 1.5 compared to a murder rate of 20 that goes to 25, YES, the rate rises faster.

Second part, I had to stifle an actual laugh out loud moment when he started comparing white murder rates.

I had to sit down. You're telling me that poor rural whites murder each other at a higher rate than rich, urban whites!?!?

That whole article was an example of how to lie (badly) with cherry picked statistics.

https://tinyurl.com/2ytcj8uk

Major cities start with St Louis at 69/100k, Chicago is ten at 24/100k. I suppose there are some small towns of 1000 that have one murder, so a rate of 100/100K, but states (including the whole population of the state) overall are much lower than cities, from my brief look.

Per my understanding, PACs are limited in terms of how much they can give to candidate campaigns, but not in terms of how much they can spend on candidates.

MannixPAC could give $5k to Cthulhu For President and no more, but that's not an issue at all. MannixPAC could still take out ads on TV and send direct mail and make phone calls and send door-to-door canvassers to deliver the good news about Cthulhu and make the case for why it ought to be president, and can do so without limit - so long as Cthulhu and its campaign do not coordinate with MannixPAC.

The second photo is worse than the first. The folks in the first photo are actually fighting a war. The folks in the second photo WISH they were.

I missed where the random American family massacred over 1000 people, but if it makes you feel better, I guess you can pretend they’re worse.

if you want to get technical, 'random' right-wing families have murdered thousands of people throughout US history. 50 here, 25 there--it adds up. The number doesn't matter. The killing does.

As stupid as the redneck collector family is, they aren't Hamas. No evidence that they attack, slaughter, rape, burn and otherwise terrorize anyone else. So big fat fucking fail on this post.

Oh they definitely terrorize others. All you have to do is look at the background of mass shooters to see how they were raised. Most come from very conservative families like Kyle Rittenhouse and Dylan Roof.

Right. It's why it's fairly easy for a company to be "fastest growing." If you go from $10k in sales in a year to $1 million in sales in a year, you're growing 100x per year - pretty damn fast, but also pretty damn easy when yours is a new company and you have lots of sales incentives and the kind of white-glove customer service that often comes from startups.

"Fastest-growing cloud storage provider" isn't difficult to achieve - especially if you can determine *what* is the growth metric you want (revenues, customers, gigabytes, etc.) and doubly so if you can also choose the time period you want (year, quarter, month, half-hour, etc.).

No. The stoners were their own problem, but it was much later on from the root problem of colonization by Californians, primarily from Silicon Valley. CO was subject to two massive population influxes within a 20-year period. The first was the telecom boom (90s) and the second was the cost-rationalization era following the tech wreck (mid aughts through mid teens), where lots of CA tech companies took advantage of the high tech skill level - and lower cost structure - in the Front Range to outsource a lot of CA operations. A lot of CA people came with it, and the state faltered from purple into blue. Then universal cheat-by-mail sealed the deal and the Party went whole-hog.

It was deliberately targeted by the Party as a conversion opportunity. Staggering sums of money poured in to CO as a part of the overall campaign.

I knew two stoner brothers when I was in high school whose highest ambition in life was to move to Colorado. Ever curious about how people in your youth turned out?

I was so I checked 'em both out. The older brother has a half a million dollar federal lien on his ass, the under-performing brother who was in my class a mere quarter million dollar federal lien.

I suspect I know what they were doing in Colorado and it wasn't anywhere near the 'gainful employment' category.

235 221 201, false. No offense my good man but it makes no sense. Trump would pick Haley because of his age? Have you listened to young people these days? And why would Trump care he wants to be president?

I would bet anything and anyone who wants to put something up let’s do it no I don’t wanna do that cause I love the hoard I’m just saying there’s no way Nikki Haley is going to be vice president we don’t like her we want her to go away
Posted by: Quint at November 28, 2023 02:08 PM (f+lVG)

I wouldn't say it's impossible for Trump to pick Haley as his VP.

She's not attacking him. She was his ambassador to the UN and did well. She has an air of loyalty to him personally.

It's possible. I kind of doubt it (who had Pence on their card for 2016?, it'll probably someone out of the conversation like that again), but it's possible.

No. The stoners were their own problem, but it was much later on from the root problem of colonization by Californians, primarily from Silicon Valley. CO was subject to two massive population influxes within a 20-year period. The first was the telecom boom (90s) and the second was the cost-rationalization era following the tech wreck (mid aughts through mid teens), where lots of CA tech companies took advantage of the high tech skill level - and lower cost structure - in the Front Range to outsource a lot of CA operations. A lot of CA people came with it, and the state faltered from purple into blue. Then universal cheat-by-mail sealed the deal and the Party went whole-hog.

It was deliberately targeted by the Party as a conversion opportunity. Staggering sums of money poured in to CO as a part of the overall campaign.

Oh they definitely terrorize others. All you have to do is look at the background of mass shooters to see how they were raised. Most come from very conservative families like Kyle Rittenhouse and Dylan Roof.

Yeah, I tapped out at the California/Florida comparison.

TLDR version:
* 98% of CA police depts have reported their stats to the feds, while
* There were 1400 murders in FL (reported by... ?)
* There were 88 arrests for murder in FL (presumably reported by police departments, so already lowballed according to point 1)
* There were 1600 arrests for murder in CA

Therefore FL is more violent than CA.

296 Sen. Romney signaled that nearly any candidate in the 2024 field, of either party, would be an “upgrade” over another term for former President Trump.

“I’d be happy to support virtually any one of the Republicans — maybe not Vivek [Ramaswamy] — but the others that are running would be acceptable to me, and I’d be happy to vote for them,”...“I’d be happy to vote for a number of the Democrats too,” he continued. “It would be an upgrade, in my opinion, from Donald Trump and perhaps also from Joe Biden.”


I always had a begrudging respect of him even when he ran for President. Though President Obama was a great president I wasn’t as scared of Romney as I was of TFG!

What a petty little loser. RMoney can't help himself with the assinine comment about Biden. This type of rhetoric almost equates the failed former office-holder with the very successful current President. This type of sniping is so typical of that party. Good riddance, the RMoney family.

What did they do? Wake him up from his afternoon nap to ask those questions?Or did he just stumble into someone else's presser? Could he be anymore wishy-washy? Nobody cares, Mitt.

Teaching in WI met a 9-year old girl who had to wear special gloves in winter here because on arrival, as a toddler nobody in her family understood COLD, their experience of winter and snow was cotton balls. She went outside to play and got severe frostbite.
Nobody in her family had any idea what Cold, like real, COLD, actually meant and what it would do.

303 I wouldn't say it's impossible for Trump to pick Haley as his VP.

She's not attacking him. She was his ambassador to the UN and did well. She has an air of loyalty to him personally.

It's possible. I kind of doubt it (who had Pence on their card for 2016?, it'll probably someone out of the conversation like that again), but it's possible.

=========

I think VP picks as an excuse to appeal to sectors of the electorate are bullshit. They don't matter. VPs don't move votes. I did a statistical analysis a while back to see if VP's had a "favorite son" effect in their own states.

They didn't. Vote percentage changes in those states were statistically insignificant when factoring in the VP being from there.

I think that probably extends to most other sectors of the electorate. It's top line or nothing, and most of the time it's just about low level partisanship in the electorate and finding motivation to get out, and that motivation is never the guy who reads the newspaper in his office every day as his job.

VP talk is about appealing to insiders, and it's hard to imagine Trump making insiders happy with any choice that isn't him just leaving the political scene. Trump will play the game because he's a reformer not a revolutionary, but he shouldn't play the game.

I think the Democrat Party broke apart during the Obama presidency, and they are relying on cheating in places like Philly to be competitive on the national stage.

I don't think any of their candidates matter because places like Philly, Fulton County, Detroit, Maricopa County, and others will just count until the right person wins.

Also, 'abortion' is not even the campaign business as no woman I work with or even know casually supports unrestricted abortion for all. They're selling it as birth control which is a serious hurdle. The sale to women is that the GOP will deny any birth control to any woman anywhere, ever, period the end and the GOP, being the Right faction of the Uniparty, does nothing to combat this total lie.

379 357 345 I think that is how a lot of VPs are picked, and the conventional wisdom on some historical picks indicates that, but even if it has no actual impact I believe some candidates try to pick strategically in the hopes of affecting votes.

==========

How much conventional wisdom is just nonsense that insiders have pushed because they can't explain why things happen?

I think VP is one of those things. They hope, but they don't do squat. And yet, consultants still charge $500,000 to tell candidates things that are, at best, questionably true and "common knowledge."
Posted by: TheJamesMadison, celebrating anarchy and 50s B-movies with Joe Dante at November 28, 2023 02:28 PM (GBKbO)

The conventional wisdom part was referring to the VP pick being a result of insider horse trading. I think a fair number of VPs are broadly assessed as being that, but not all can be explained by it.

I have a friend that went to Brown so I know things.

Plus I actually attended one of his EE classes there.

I have been to one lecture and Brown and one at Yale Med. The Yale Med lecture happened to cover skull fractures and in particular the one where you get hit in the nose and the sharp protrubance on the inside of the skull gets driven into the brain when the nose bridge fractures. What comes out is more spinal fluid than blood in this instance.

I was insuffurable for awhile pointing this out about the scene in Miller's Crossing where the guy gets a shovel to the face; the Cohens had spinal fluid come out his nose and I was giddy like a schoolgirl.

Posted by: Cat Ass Trophy
------
No, the lawyers were making up in whole cloth the history of the 1850's just like they did with the 2A. Scotus has already settled this one in that states cannot add any candidate qualifications to those of the US Constitution other than time, manner, and place of elections. See US Term Limits v. Thornton from the 80's which rested on Powell v McCormick regarding the House's refusal to seat Powell as representative without going through the task of expelling him which requires 2/3rds majority.

That is why by and large each move is failing in state and federal trial courts and as the failures accumulate then it is much more likely for Scotus to simply affirm the lower court rulings.

Trump's real risk is the DC trial and less likely the Georgia state one or the Florida classified documents federal case.

It is because the party apparatus and the candidates themselves probably support abortion on demand. People forget that the GOP for a long time before Reagan was actually much more favorable to feminism, abortion, population control, and the equal rights amendment than Southern Democrats. It was Reagan's legacy to cause evangelicals to move from voting for one of theirs (Jimmah Cartah-Southern Baptist) to Reagan (divorcee and not obviously traditionally religious).

It was on pro life policy that moved the evangelicals and faithful Catholics from D-R in the South and North, not Reagan himself.
