Ambassador Nyhus said, “I am humbled and incredibly honored to serve President Biden, our country and the American people as U.S. Ambassador to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean. I look forward to bringing my Washington State and Chinook Indian Nation values to this new role and partnering closely with the seven dynamic independent nations of the Eastern Caribbean on addressing climate change, enhancing regional security, and promoting economic prosperity.”

He is an enrolled member of the Chinook Indian Nation, and his personal passions include championing wildlife conservation and the arts.

    The United States is not concerned about others. It foreign policy as taught in schools is 2. it’s national security itself- its shores, 2. what the countries have in terms of resources and lastly 3. people this is done through the organizations that further its foreign policy and see 1 and 2 above.

    This ambassador from Washington State – Seattle iis a CEO business owner who the current president held dinner party at his house – FUNDRAISER 2020 and there he is today following 3 months of doing NADA. One year from 2022 where he had to be confirmed did we see Linda at the General Assembly?

    The Tibetan Buddhists one went to prison for bribery of politicians in their nonsense.
    I am still student at the BIG School in Washington State so I know he did not finish there he finished at the other one. – hee chose to be a fish and I will continue to be a DAWG i a husky -n politics.

    These CEOs. in Seattle let me just say we know.

    The ambassador whose state has issues beyond gross human rights violations and engaging in high crimes and fraud. High level of white supremacists. There is a 14 000 000 tort. claim against this state for human rights violations.

    In this state where this ambassador came from I can attest to the fact that Tibetans are exhibiting what one can call terroristic traits against real people – I can attest to this and some day I will get to say this on person – hate black people and personally did not like. the fact that the Karmapa Llama has a Dominica passport – they told me in person and I know what they are doing.

    I know what is going on. some people don’t and

    These ambassadors come and go and as far as I am concerned, they have for the main, been useless. The Americans have done almost nada for these oecs countries except for matters which concern “IS interest”. They patrol the seas but for what? Drugs, “illegal aliens”, illegal guns. Not to prevent them from entering the OECS but to prevent them from entering the US (except the guns). Other than that, infrastructure and other developments that people can feel and see, hardly anything.Taiwan, China, Venezuela, and others do more than the US has ever done.

    Well, I hope that this new ambassador will be different. Good luck to him.

    Well-loved. Like or Dislike: Thumb up 6 Thumb down 2
