Panel reportedly recommends Haley receive Secret Service protection. RFK Jr responds.

Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley is set to be granted Secret Service protection in her establishment-backed White House bid, a courtesy that continues to be denied to Robert F. Kennedy Jr. despite his family’s well-known history with political assassinations.

Not that any further proof was needed that the former South Carolina governor and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations is a privileged friend of the ruling class,  a congressional advisory panel has recommended that she merits the special protection in her bid to topple current runaway GOP frontrunner Donald J. Trump for the party’s nomination.

RFK Jr. reacted to the news in a lengthy post to X  in which he expressed the opinion that he’s glad that Haley will receive protection but decried the double standard from the Biden regime, which has repeatedly rejected his calls for the Secret Service to be assigned to him amid threats to his safety.

“A congressional advisory committee just voted in favor of granting Nikki Haley Secret Service protection. While I’m happy she’ll be protected and publicly supported her request, double standards abound,” Kennedy said. “My campaign first requested Secret Service protection in May 2023 with a 63 page declaration. We still have a current request pending. My request is the first time in 55 years a candidate has ever been denied. The Biden administration is the sole outlier to turn down a request for Secret Service coverage.”

“Polling is one of the criteria used to determine whether to approve Secret Service or not. Nikki Haley’s polling is a fraction of mine,” he said, pointing out the inconvenient truth of the establishment narrative being that Haley has little to no organic support.

“Refusing me Secret Service protection is a way to drain my campaign funds and stop the movement we’re building together. They want us out of the race by any means necessary. This is blatant election interference,” he said, suggesting that Democrats, who have played dirty pool from the get-go are trying to bleed him out by forcing him to cover the costs for his own security.

“Let me be clear: I have immense respect for the Secret Service. This corruption is coming from much higher up,” he added. “As many saw on Judicial Watch this week, documents were published that show Secretary Mayorkas and his cronies deliberately refusing my campaign Secret Service–after credible threats and packets of evidence were submitted. Unfortunately, most of the documents were redacted. What do Mayorkas and his buddies have to hide?”

“Unfortunately for the establishment and those who skulk around in back rooms, I’m not going anywhere. Our movement is growing stronger and our coalition is building. I am more steadfast than ever about winning in November. If you give me a sword and some ground to stand on, I will give you your country back,” RFK Jr. said.

According to ABC News which cited the typical anonymous sources, the panel was comprised of congressional leaders House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA), House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and the Senate Sergeant at Arms recommended the Secret Service detail for Haley.

The decision comes after two highly publicized “swatting” attempts on the candidate with the final decision now in the hands of freshly impeached Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas who, given Haley’s value to the Biden-Harris campaign, will almost certainly approve it.
