Nikki Hayley joins neocon organization

Hayley has accepted a role with the Hudson Institute, a Washington DC-based, ultra-conservative think tank specializing in foreign policy affairs, following her exit from the 2024 presidential race.

She will become the institute’s Walter P Stern chair, a post named for Hudson’s former chair who died in 2022. Haley served as US ambassador to the UN during Trump’s presidency and is the fourth member of his administration to join HI.

She follows in the steps of other swamp rats, former attorney general William Barr, ex-secretary of state Mike Pompeo, as well as former transportation secretary Elaine Chao (Mrs. Mitch McConnell),

Hayley adds to the list of insiders ready to spend US tax dollars on the perpetual war machine. The Hudson Institute blames Ukraine’s losses on the lack of financial support from the West. Haley, who received Hudson’s global leadership award in 2018 for her work at the UN, would appear a good fit for the institute, which has demonstrated strongly pro-Ukraine and pro-Israel positions in recent months.

According to the Guardian: Previous prominent Hudson figures have included Henry Kissinger, the late veteran diplomat and Nobel peace prize winner; Dan Quayle, who served as vice-president to George HW Bush from 1989 to 1993; and Alexander Haig, White House chief of staff in the administrations of Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, then secretary of state for Ronald Reagan from 1981 to 1982.
