    President Joe Biden's dismissive remark at a CNN town hall this week – where he appeared to accept China's human rights abuses of Muslim Uighurs as different cultural "norms" – has "disheartened" former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. "To pawn this off as a different norm or a different set of behaviors, that's what the Chinese Communist Party says," Pompeo told Newsmax TV's "Saturday Agenda." "That's how they talk about this. They just say, 'look, we have a different culture, we're a little bit different.' "This isn't about different cultures or different norms. This is about a deep human rights...

    Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is blasting the Biden administration for saying it is ready to join talks with Iran and world powers to discuss a return to the 2015 nuclear deal. Pompeo made his comments to The Washington Free Beacon. They came after the State Department said on Thursday that the U.S. would accept an invitation from the European Union to attend a meeting of the participants in the original nuclear agreement with Iran. Pompeo told the Free Beacon that European nations "wanted to appease the Iranian theocracy for my entire time as secretary of state. We refused....

    The military, known as the Tatmadaw, charged that there was massive voting fraud in the election, though it has failed to provide proof. The state Union Election Commission last week rejected its allegations. Amid the bickering over the allegations, the military last Tuesday ramped up political tension when a spokesman at its weekly news conference, responding to a reporter’s question, declined to rule out the possibility of a coup. Maj. Gen. Zaw Min Tun elaborated by saying the military would “follow the laws in accordance with the constitution.” Using similar language, Commander-in-Chief Senior Gen. Min Aung Hlaing told senior officers...

    The White House reporter for Voice of America was abruptly pulled from her beat after trying to question Secretary of State Mike Pompeo following a speech he gave at the government agency this week. Pompeo’s speech and the demotion of Patsy Widakuswara led to an angry phone meeting between journalists and managers Tuesday that typified some of the tensions at the agency during President Donald Trump’s administration. After speaking, he engaged in a brief question and answer session with VOA’s new director, Robert Reilly. Apparently unsatisfied with the questions put to Pompeo, Widakuswara shouted her own as he was leaving....

Pompeo’s planned trip to Europe was also canceled. Pompeo last week announced Craft’s planned travel to the democratic island, which sparked anger from the...

    Washington “One-China” Policy Dead As Pompeo Lifts Restrictions On US-Taiwan Relations The embattled Trump administration has just nuked the decades long US recognition of the “One China” policy status quo in what surely constitutes the biggest shot across Beijing’s bow after months of anti-China escalation. Despite the globe’s attention focused on the Capitol protest chaos and Democrats readying a charge to impeach under Pelosie, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday announced this absolute bombshell, namely that he’s now lifting “self-imposed restrictions” on the relationship between the United States and Taiwan. He announced in an official statement: Today I am...

Pompeo said tactics by the United Front include the release of personal details online of their...
