  • HOLY OCTOBER SURPRISE? — Pompeo just announced he has Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 deleted emails, and is ‘in process’ of releasing them publicly

    HOLY OCTOBER SURPRISE — Pompeo just announced he has Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 deleted emails, and is ‘in process’ of releasing them publiclyPompeo on Dana Perino’s show in the past 15 minutes. Watch the last 30 seconds. The clip is unclear. Trump is talking about the 33,000 emails, then Pompeo says we’ve got them, but doesn’t mention the 33,000. He might be talking about just the classified emails. This story is developing.

    Harris never scored higher than 1% before the D&C (party central named after an abortion procedure) ordered all the contestants to commit hara kiri. Harris being brought back from the dead, predicted by Adams 6 months ago (he was one of about 5 of the commentariat who predicted Trump's victory in 2015) was based on Biden having to pick a Woman and an African American, conventional hindsight now but Adam's was one of the few making the prediction last year. It will all change after she opens her mouth tonight, but VP candidates were once expected to look respectable and...

    “We did call her Bloody Gina. Gina was always very quick and very willing to use force. Gina and people like Gina did it, I think, because they enjoyed doing it. They tortured just for the sake of torture, not for the sake of gathering information.”-John Kirakou I would take anything John Kirakou says with a grain from the salt pit.  I question his credibility. What does anyone really know about Gina Haspel, President Trump's nominee to be the next director of the CIA? Not a heck of a lot. So far what we have is media and ideology-driven hysteria:...

    In an interview with Mark Levin on Sunday on Fox News's Life, Liberty, and Levin, Pompeo discussed the Trump administration's approach to foreign policy with a focus on its adversaries and discussed China's growing influence. "I think political leadership has failed the American people in this regard for many, many years, misunderstanding what it was that the Chinese Communist Party has as its intention," Pompeo said. "In America, sometimes we discount these things. Just listen to what General Secretary Xi Jinping says, and you can predict and watch what the Chinese actions are likely to be." Pompeo also disagreed with...

    DOHA, Qatar — U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Breitbart News exclusively — after meetings between Afghan government officials and Taliban leaders as part of the beginning of intra-Afghan peace negotiations — that the process is moving along on pace for a full withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Afghanistan by the spring of 2021. “I do,” Pompeo said when asked if the process is moving on pace with a Feb. 29 agreement between the United States and Taliban leadership that laid out the framework for the United States to reduce the troop count to zero by April or...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Tuesday he was hopeful that Chinese Confucius Institute cultural centers on U.S. university campuses would all be shut down by the end of the year. "I think everyone's coming to see the risk associated with them," Pompeo told Lou Dobbs on the Fox Business Network, accusing the Chinese-government funded institutes of working to recruit "spies and collaborators" at U.S. colleges. "I think these institutions can see that, and I'm hopeful we will get them all closed out before the end of this year." Last month, Pompeo labeled the center...

    A long article by Chinese Communist Party (CCP) mouthpiece Xinhua News Agency that lambasted U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for criticizing the communist regime has unexpectedly backfired, as Chinese netizens expressed support for Pompeo and criticized the CCP.The 30,000-word article that Xinhua published on Aug. 25 criticized a speech Pompeo delivered outside the Nixon Presidential Library in California on July 23. Xinhua said it was “a total negation of the China-U.S. relations” and “malicious attacks” on the CCP’s political system, and “undermines the CCP’s relations with the Chinese people.” It then excerpted 26 passages from Pompeo’s speech, and...

    Religious liberty groups raised alarms that top Biden campaign surrogate Susan Rice's attack on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's "overt" faith could lead to future discrimination against believers. Catholic and religious liberty groups criticized Rice's comments for targeting Pompeo's faith after she told MSNBC on Wednesday that "Mike Pompeo has been an overtly religious secretary of state, which in itself is problematic." Pompeo is an evangelical Christian and has been outspoken about how his faith impacts his tenure as secretary. Rice added that Pompeo is "supposed to represent all of America, all of our religions, all of our threads." "In...

    Rep. Elliot Engel, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, announced Friday the Committee would begin working on a resolution to hold Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in contempt after he spoke at the Republican National Convention this week. Engel, D-N.Y., said the resolution was a result of Pompeo’s “ongoing refusal” to comply with subpoena records for “political misuse” of State Department resources. At the convention, Pompeo broke with diplomatic tradition to deliver a speech from Jerusalem touting the president’s foreign policy agenda. The speech stirred an outcry from Democrats who claimed it violated the Hatch Act, but Republicans shrugged...

    Former Obama-era national security adviser Susan Rice said Tuesday that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo being an "overtly religious" member of President Trump's cabinet was "problematic." "Mike Pompeo has been an overtly religious secretary of state, which in itself is problematic, because, again, he's supposed to represent all of America, all of our religions, all of our threads," she said in an interview on MSNBC. Members of the Trump administration have frequently been faulted for their Christian faith over the past four years by liberal officials and members of the media. In 2017, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) opposed Office...

In fact, unlike the other cabinet secretaries, the screen behind Mills specifically identified her as “Administrator Small Business Administration”

    Folks, Secretary Mike Pompeo gave a talk in Israel alongside Prime Minister Netanyahu. The Fake News and Search Engines are doing everything in their power from having the public hear/see the wonderful praise Netanyahu gave the Trump Administration today. Netanyahu laid all the cards on the table. He crushed Obama's Iran policy and gave a stirring endorsement of President Trump. I could not find his speech on Youtube or any outlet, but here's the transcript of his remarks from the State Department directly.

    Congressional Democrats have asked the US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, to provide information about China’s alleged role in building a uranium processing facility in Saudi Arabia. US officials have told journalists and nuclear experts they suspect a mill for producing yellowcake – refined uranium ore – is being built by Chinese technicians in the desert near Al-Ula in the north-west of the kingdom. The alleged construction of a yellowcake facility was first reported by the Wall Street Journal, but experts have yet to confirm its existence through satellite imagery. If confirmed, it would strengthen suspicions that the Saudi monarchy...

    For too long, Hollywood, American corporations, and even American sports (see: NBA) have self-censored to appease communist China. Secretary of State Mike Pompe says that era needs to end. Speaking at the Nixon Library in California, Pompeo gave a lengthy speech about the dangers of the United States doing anything and everything possible to squeeze cheap dollars out of the Chinese Communist regime: In Hollywood, not too far from here – the epicenter of American creative freedom, and self-appointed arbiters of social justice – self-censors even the most mildly unfavorable reference to China. This corporate acquiescence to the CCP happens...

    The New York Times ’ “1619 Project,” which examines the role of slavery in U.S. history, was not the central focus of his speech, nor of the new draft report that his controversial Commission on Unalienable Rights produced. But his comments have sparked fresh debate and criticism among diplomats who continue to raise alarm bells over long-standing issues of systemic racism and diversity challenges in the State Department. Five officials who spoke to Foreign Policy on condition of anonymity described a reaction of shock and fury. “Pompeo made it very clear where he stands and reaffirmed the purpose of the...

    When Secretary Mike Pompeo first set out on this journey to get back to the real heart of human rights, no one could have possibly predicted the year our country would have. Shaken by outrage, unrest, and the growing insistence that America is too flawed to fix, a return to our roots will only dredge up more hard feelings, some say. On the contrary, Pompeo insists. Maybe the best time to revisit all that's pure and good about our nation is when people are determined to destroy it. "Some say the report's timing couldn't be worse," he said. "I say...
