Nikki Haley, on the campaign for the Republican nomination for president, trailed in the Iowa caucuses and lost the New Hampshire primary.

Now she’s encountering a bit of hostility – and it’s in her own state.

Areport from Politico explains, “They’ve all turned their backs on her.”

”The former South Carolina governor has won longshot primaries in her state before. But this one is different,” the report said.

It described the terrain she faces in her own state as “forbidding,” largely because allies like Sen. Tim Scott have endorsed Trump.

”It bothers me that she did a lot of things for people, and they’ve all turned their backs on her,” Pat Pope, 67, told Politico.

Haley supporter Rep. Ralph Norman noted that even congressional Republicans are asking her to step aside.

”These pundits are saying get out. Why?” Norman said. “Nikki’s got the courage to continue on. She would have liked to have done better in both New Hampshire and Iowa. But it is what it is, and she’s willing to put the work in. And I’m with her.”

The report noted she’s been an underdog in the state elections before, but now it appears “more difficult.”

”It’s not just the Republican establishment in Columbia out to stop her. Following her defeat in New Hampshire, and just as Haley got the head-to-head contest with Trump that she had long hoped for, some of the most powerful voices of the GOP called for the primary to come to an end, saying conservatives should simply get behind Trump.,” the report said.

Some of the more intense negativism was coming from Trump, according to Just the News.

He “declared that persons who contribute to her campaign moving forward will be unwelcome in the Make America Great Again movement,” the report said.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: For America’s ruling elites, nothing is more precious, wonderful and life-giving to their great cause than the Jan. 6, 2021 “insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol. It’s irrelevant that the events didn’t come remotely close to constituting an actual “insurrection,” or that both police and over 200 undercover FBI assets provoked the riot – which Tucker Carlson calls a “set-up.” Yet Vice President Kamala Harris still insists the minor riot was just as horrific as the 9/11 terror attacks and Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor.

WHY are the elites doing this?

It’s not just because convicting, imprisoning, torturing and destroying the lives of hundreds of Trump supporters is meant to terrify and intimidate millions of Americans into submission. And it’s not just because activist judges and bureaucrats in over 30 states are absurdly trying to keep Trump off their state’s election ballots by citing the 14th Amendment’s prohibition against anyone who “engaged in insurrection” from holding elective office.

It’s because the elites’ destruction of America is so rapid, horrendous and obvious that they feel compelled to turn their opponents into monsters – or lose power at the next election. But that doesn’t mean just calling conservatives and Christians “racists,” “white supremacists,” “radical extremists” and “domestic terrorists” as they do continually. They know much more is needed.

Question: What if, far from being horrified by a half-baked riot they absurdly claim is worse than any domestic disturbance since the Civil War, the left actually LOVES the idea of violence on the right – the worse the better – since it perfectly serves their agenda? Increasingly, all the evidence strongly suggests today’s power-mad leftist elites not only intend to intimidate and discredit their political opponents by calling them terrorists, they mean to provoke actual violence.

The secret strategies and shocking tactics of today’s ascendant far-left elites are exposed as perhaps never before in the January issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, headlined “INCITING VIOLENCE: DEMS’ SECRET STRATEGY FOR STAYING IN POWER.”
