New York Times Pushes Blatantly False “Hit Piece” on U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley – Forced To Retract…

There are moments when the professional narrative engineers go so far with falsehoods even their ideological co-horts have to admit they’ve gone to far.  Such is the case today with a New York Times article written to criticize U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley:

(Via New York Times) The State Department spent $52,701 last year buying customized and mechanized curtains for the picture windows in Nikki R. Haley’s official residence as ambassador to the United Nations, just as the department was undergoing deep budget cuts and had frozen hiring.

The residence, in a new building on First Avenue, has spectacular views, and Ms. Haley is the first ambassador to live in it. For decades, her predecessors lived in the Waldorf Astoria hotel. But after the hotel was purchased by a Chinese insurance company with a murky ownership structure, the State Department decided in 2016 to find a new home for its top New York diplomat because of security concerns.

The government leased the apartment, just blocks from the delegation’s offices, with an option to buy, according to Patrick Kennedy, the top management official at the State Department during the Obama administration. The full-floor penthouse, with handsome hardwood floors covering large open spaces stretching nearly 6,000 square feet, was listed at $58,000 a month. (read more)

Except there’s a problem here.  This was all done by President Obama, Secretary John Kerry and U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power.  Nikki Haley had nothing to do with it.

It was decided, well before the election in 2016, that the US Ambassador’s residence would move from the Waldorf to its new location. The new location was unfurnished/unfinished.

In June of 2016 it was decided that the State Department’s Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations would outfit the new residence (this is standard operating procedure for Ambassadors’ residences across the globe).  Bottom line: “Ambassador. Haley had no choice in the location of the residence or what curtains were picked out that summer.”

Which led to the following New York Times correction:

          I agree. My working thesis is that Manafort was a plant. DJT added him to the campaign knowing that. Then he was jettisoned, but not forgotten. This is where I am conflicted about Mueller. Assuming I am correct about Manfort, Mueller prosecuted a person planted into the Trump campaign. And investigating him allowed Mueller to acquire any evidence that proves he was a plant, and would probably corroborate other testimony/evidence gathered. Hmmm. What side is he on?

But the statement just sounded like it was code or something. Esp using the word ‘safe’.

        Thank you wolfmoon for linking about Duranty.

        I was thinking about Duranty and the NY Times’ history of fake news when I read in another Treehouse thread about the Canadian negotiator Freeland. Freeland is apparently embittered towards present-day Russia because of revelations about one of her relatives’ past collaboration with Nazis during invasion of Ukraine during the WWII era.

        If Freeland had received an honest history education, Freeland would know that in Ukraine (Breadbasket of Europe and the World before the Bolsheviks took over), survivors of starvation and mismanagement by the Bolsheviks had reason to collaborate. The Ukrainian survivors would take any help they could get — certainly no help had been forthcoming from the NY Times and Duranty, or FDR or the mis-led American public.

        French Communists also collaborated with the Nazis during the brief period when there was an alliance between USSR and Nazi Germany.

        Finland was another country that “collaborated” for a time with Nazi Germany, because Finland had been invaded by the USSR (see “Winter War Finland”).

        The history of the Bolsheviks and World War II has been so garbled and mis-represented that people who consider themselves outstanding academics are almost completely ignorant of what went on, and WHY

          Excellent post! This is one of the reasons “Q” is facing an uphill battle trying to explain German international socialism (KPD) “versus”/and German national socialism (Nazis), all of which is terribly complicated by (1) the IntSoc-created myth that the Nazis were their “opposite”, and (2) the historical complications you mention, which are always glossed over in propaganda or big pictures.

          One of my greatest tools in this is to get people to understand that National Socialism and Fascism are basically watered-down forms of International Socialism, in which people are “reassured” to varying extents by the idea of keeping certain things from their pre-socialist days, such as national patriotism, church, capitalism, etc. Not exactly surprising that full-blown socialists will accept people walking half-way to the Soviet, so to speak.

          The real challenge is to understand that STATISM is the core demon to be fought.

          Whether the STATE controls everything by actual total control, or simply by abstaining from parts of self-granted total control, we see that what the state calls itself is not important. What it DOES is what’s important.

          Historical clarity is on our side. As long as we stay wedded to TRUTH, we are gonna win.

          So much for our education system. Fortunately for our family, my children’s history teacher was of Ukrainian heritage, sporting a tattoo on her wrist, who threw out the textbooks’ propaganda to teach the subject via letters, articles and photos collected by our city’s Ukrainian and Russian Orthodox churches. That experience did give us a very different perspective of Russia vs. Communist U.S.S.R. and all the other nations involved in WWI and II. SO many were killed or later imprisoned in Nazi-organized camps because they simply did not believe in the Menshevik/Bolshevik systems or the mafias that reigned throughout Europe.

          Much of our history needs revisiting without all the propaganda attached.

      Glad to get a retraction.

      Would be interested in how the NYT characterized Scott Pruitt’s $40k planned expenditure for the SCIF for his office. One outlet called it a phone booth. He also was slapped for what looked like excessive orders for “tactical pants”. Apparently these were uniform shorts and long pants for employees tasked to serve warrants and subpoenas.

      There were multiple stories about excessive expenditures for his security. However, his security seems to have failed him because someone was able to walk up to him and confront him while he was seated at a restaurant. That is when he resigned. All I read was that he was “embattled” and was under a cloud. However, it was pretty evident that there was either an accidental or intentional failure by his security detail.

      Not defending Scott Pruitt but he was in a position that was certain to draw the ire of some of the most radical of the wacko crowd. Somebody is going to be badly injured again as Steve Scalise was, maybe even killed, unless the current trajectory changes.

    The new curtains are more expensive than the $31,000 dining room set purchased for the office of Ben Carson, the secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. That purchase became so controversial that President Trump considered firing Mr. Carson, though the spending rules covering agency chiefs are different from those for ambassadors.

    Are there any pictures of the apartment & windows? From the article, “The new curtains themselves cost $29,900, while the motors and hardware needed to open and close them automatically cost $22,801, according to the contracts.” Not seeing the windows and size of end product, the cost for a custom drapery seems plausible. They did not say if these window covering were for the whole apartment. Also are blinds or shades included in the hardware expense? Sundance just posted on Twitter the wiring contract is an additional $8300 per David Martosko…
    WSB can maybe give a better idea if this is frivolous or not.

    Also the article calls them “curtains.” They are draperies. Curtains are not pleated, but gathered on a rod, like kitchen curtains.

      Hi, Lumina,

      Thanks for the suggestion!

      One account from the NY Post describes the condo. If it has an elevator, and from other accounts has 6000 square feet 3000 SF per floor possibly, the price could very well have been for a total motorized traversing panel system or solar/blackout roller shades.

      https://nypost.com/2018/01/03/nikki-haleys-condo-at-the-un-is-saving-you-money/

      Here is the plan of the 36th through 41st floors, so the apartment probably has two floors, personal apartments and offices on the one; public meeting rooms and function rooms/ballroom on the other.

      The windows are floor to ceiling, requiring a system like this, probably for at least the one floor of public spaces.

      I worked twice on the UN Ambassador’s residence in the Waldorf Towers. It was really a traditional residential apartment with a 52 foot living room, classical openings, standard punched jalousie windows and French doors, etc. Beautiful apartment, though. However, it was way too small to host functions and ceremonies, let alone the residential elevators, small corridors, small guard stations, etc.

      This is more like a functioning consulate, so there is opportunity to host events in a secure location. And yes, a motorized system for the windows on one floor is probably the real story. It is not unusual.

  39. Draperies? Curtains? Lies? Pull their press credentials for 60 days. Let them squirm, squeal and squawk. Gee – 60 days gets them past the midterms. So sorry! They lose. Ha-ha-ha. MAGA

      If they are trying to regain credibility, they are trying to distance themselves from the impending MOAB of truth about to blast the swamp

        I think you’re right. They are trapped between their collapsing narrative and the emergence of Q and other forces as a means of discrediting the Fake News. But their efforts are too late, too small, and impossible – the wiggle room only goes so far. They are building sandcastles against a mighty tide.

        It’s wonderful.

        But it’s clear that Fake Jake is marked for salvation. They will try to use him to retain credibility – to shape and spin what is to come.

          They try to destroy that which they fear, and they are very afraid of POTUS Trump, his cabinet and his deplorables be they CNN meme makers or Q. Recall how they labeled Breitbart a white supremacist group during the elections when they decided that’s who had too much ability to break their propaganda spell over battered conservatives?

          The ONLY chance CNN might possibly regain any credibility would be to fire and replace ALL of their talking heads and start over. Even then, it would be a longshot bc they woukd just be new voices spewing same lies

            YES!

            They have to CUT THE TOXIC TIES (whatever those are) between CNN and CIA, in my opinion. A free press is NOT a free press if it is tied to the government. THEN it is possible that CNN could recover. NOT UNTIL, IMO.

    They knew going in the details on the ambassador’s residence. They wrote it purposefully to make it look like this was Ambassador Haley’s work. They didn’t expect to be called out so quickly, but the desired effect had already been obtained. It is no wonder their rag should be named the New York Slimes. A prima facie case of Fake News barely disguised.

    NYT profited from the false reporting because it was parroted far and wide due to its click bait nature, earning the NYT ad revenue from all the clicks.

    This is why fake news like NYT is such a problem. Not only does it misinform the public, but the lying narrative engineers literally profit monetarily from every clickbaity story they can spew out.

    This is just another example of The New York Times taking things literally and not figuratively. It was 2016. They ordered curtains. What they got was curtains for Hillary.

    MSM can go to Male Pronoun Double Hockey Sticks.

    Someone should set a GoFundMe for curtains for her office, or other expenses “as needed,” with a goal of $52,701. MAGA Americans can contribute until we hit the goal, all to spite these Communists.
