    Mike Pompeo, former Secretary of State under President Donald Trump, has been summoned by a Spanish court to explain an alleged US government plot to assassinate WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, according to ABC Spain. The alleged plot was first revealed by Yahoo News in September, which reported that senior CIA and Trump administration officials discussed possibly kidnapping or killing Assange after being angered by Wikileaks' publication of sensitive CIA hacking tools. The discussions took place "at the highest levels" of the Trump administration, a former senior counterintelligence official told the outlet, with officials even requesting "sketches" or "options" for how...

    Anyone seeking to gauge the imminent outcome of the international talks over Iran’s nuclear program being held in Vienna should take a look at reports from late January that three top U.S. diplomats had quit—largely in protest over the direction set by U.S. Special Envoy for Iran Robert Malley, who serves as the U.S. government’s chief negotiator. Having served for two years in former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s Iran Action Group, I knew that this development was tantamount to a public cry for an intervention. Such resignations—not of conservative dissenters, but of career staff and President Joe Biden’s own...

    (Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) The White House has revoked its support for the Eastern Mediterranean pipeline, a 1,900km project that will transport natural gas from an Israeli-owned offshore drilling site to Egypt, Greece, and Cyprus, The Gatestone Institute reported. The Biden administration discussed the decision with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan but apparently did not include the pipeline’s main beneficiaries—Israel, Greece, Egypt or Cyprus—in the talks. The White House said the EastMed pipeline will harm its “climate goals” and escalate tensions in the region without serving viable economic interests, Keep Talking Greece reported. Erdoğan has opposed the EastMed pipeline because...

    Biden's decision — reportedly coordinated with Turkey but reached without consulting Israel, Greece or Cyprus, the main countries involved in the project — undercuts three of the strongest American allies in the Mediterranean region.EastMed's cancellation — variously described as a "disastrous decision," a "strategic mistake" and an act of "appeasement" of Erdoğan — represents a major geopolitical victory for the Turkish strongman.The EastMed pipeline has been in the works for more than a decade. The Israel-Greece-Cyprus project — joined by Bulgaria, Hungary, North Macedonia, Romania and Serbia — has long been seen as a way to diversify natural gas supplies...
  • GOP Will Use Trump to Win Midterms, Drop Him in 2024, Says Ex-Aide Alyssa Farah Griffin

    Former Trump admin aide Alyssa Farah Griffin predicted on Sunday the GOP would use the ex-president to help win the midterms before dropping him for the 2024 presidential elections. Griffin, who served in various White House rolls including the director of strategic communications during former President Donald Trump's time in office, said she believes Republicans will keep him around for fundraising during the midterms. "Republicans are going to keep him around through 2022 because he will be helpful in winning back House seats, getting back the House majority," she said on CNN's State of the Union. "He is monster fundraiser....

    The 2024 presidential election may still be three years away, but Republicans have already begun to jockey for their places in the primary. Former President Trump’s repeated hints that he could mount another bid for the White House remains perhaps the biggest obstacle for other would-be contenders. While none have spoken definitively about their plans for 2024, many potential candidates have already started networking with GOP leaders and donors in key states while testing out campaign messages in public appearances.

    “A lot of times, a presidential candidate will pick a running mate to balance out wings of the party. But with Trump, that’s not the issue. He is the party, basically. It’s so united behind him,” said John McLaughlin, one of Trump’s campaign pollsters. “So his choice, if he runs, will come down to what he wants. It would be a much more personal decision this time.” Trump hasn’t made his 2024 bid official. He’s expected to make a decision after the 2022 midterms. But he has been building a campaign-in-waiting that is already laying groundwork, and the question of...

    Barack Obama’s former Secretary of State, John Kerry was secretly meeting with Iranian officials to salvage Iran’s nuclear weapons program. After the news broke last week, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee called on G-men to arrest John Kerry for his treasonous acts. Kerry was working against the Trump administration to salvage the Iranian nuclear deal.In May of 2018 former Obama Secretary of State was seen dining with several Iranian regime officials.  Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Trump’s claim that John Kerry violated the Logan Act is “true.”“It’s true. I mean I was there in Munich when I saw not only Kerry...

    At the beginning of October, the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2021 to two journalists — Maria Ressa and Dmitry Muratov — for “their efforts to safeguard freedom of expression, which is a precondition for democracy and lasting peace.” The committee noted that “they are representatives of all journalists … in a world in which democracy and freedom of the press face increasingly adverse conditions.” Fair enough. It is also fair to point out that it’s possible that part of the reason why the committee gave the award to a couple of reporters was to avoid...

    On September 26, 2021, Yahoo News published an extensive article about the CIA targeting WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in 2017 and the extreme conversations that were taking place at the highest levels of the U.S. government about how to control him. There is a much bigger story transparently obvious when overlapped with CTH research files on the Intelligence Branch of government; specifically the motive missed by Yahoo News for the stunning activity they outline. What I am going to outline below, is a deep dive using the resources and timeline from within that article and the specific details we have...

    Washington, Sept. 5 (CNA) Former United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Sunday called on the U.S. to stand with Taiwan after 19 Chinese military aircraft, a majority of them being fighter jets, flew into Taiwan's air defense identification zone (ADIZ) early Sunday. "The United States must always stand with Taiwan and for freedom," Pompeo said in a tweet, which also included a Bloomberg report on the Chinese warplanes' Sunday incursion. In the same vein, former U.S. ambassador to Japan and incumbent senator William Hagerty also shared the same Bloomberg report in his twitter account on Sunday. "Communist China...

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), referred to by former President Donald Trump as the "most quoted Republican in the history of our country by Democrats," strongly denounced both the Biden and Trump administrations for their handling of Afghanistan during her Sunday appearance on ABC's "This Week." In an exchange with co-anchor Jonathan Karl, Cheney discussed how this "didn't happen in a vacuum," when it comes to the withdrawal from Afghanistan. Cheney's focus was on criticizing the Trump administration in particular. "Look, I think absolutely President Biden bears responsibility for making this decision. But there is no question that President Trump, his...

    Speaking to Martha MacCallum this week, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who served under the Trump administration, slammed Biden over the way his administration has been handling the military pullout, which was first conceived by former President Donald Trump. Pompeo, the former CIA Director and Secretary of State, revealed what Trump told the Taliban in meetings and how the U.S. would withdraw its forces from the country. “I don’t know exactly what they are doing, but we had conditions attached to how we were thinking about this withdrawal — I was part of those negotiations,” Pompeo said. “I was...

    Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is a towering figure. Few public officials have had stints as CIA Director, U.S. congressman, and business owner. To supporters and detractors alike, he’s more formidable now that he’s out of office. I recently met with Secretary Pompeo at Hudson Institute in downtown Washington, D.C., where he serves as a Distinguished Fellow, to speak with him about current events. During our conversation, he discussed foreign policy, his successor Secretary Blinken’s performance thus far, President Biden’s War on Guns, and much more. Assessing the Biden DoctrineI asked Pompeo to assess his successor Secretary Antony Blinken’s...

    Ex-secretary says Anthony Fauci is parroting Chinese Communist Party talking points. ----------------------------------------------- Former Trump Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused the National Institutes of Health of trying to suppress his department's investigation into the true origins of the coronavirus pandemic, as until recently theories that the pathogen leaked from a Wuhan, China lab were often viewed as conspiratorial. On "The Ingraham Angle," Pompeo remarked that outside of typical pushback within his own department from people who didn't like him or President Donald Trump, he was also dealing with "internal debate" from the National Institutes of Health. "[NIH] folks were trying...
