Under Pompeo, a Foreign Policy
That Fits the President’s Worldview

New York Times, by David Sanger

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 3/13/2018 8:39:32 PM

The sudden firing on Tuesday of Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson, the former Exxon Mobil chief executive who never managed to capture the role of chief diplomat, makes room for a true believer in President Trump’s “America First” views and a bitter critic of the Iran nuclear deal — but also a deep skeptic about whether negotiations will persuade North Korea to abandon its nuclear arsenal. Mr. Tillerson’s anticipated replacement, Mike Pompeo, the C.I.A. director, was among the harshest critics of the 2015 nuclear agreement that world powers brokered with Iran. If confirmed, Mr. Pompeo will take over the

Comments:
Article goes on to say that Pompeo has been “immersed” in the details of the NK nuclear program and is the perfect person to lead any negotiation.

Televised congressional hearings are the political equivalent of a telethon without any money being raised for charity. The House hearing today with Peter Strzok, the disgraced FBI agent, was as partisan as one could expect, with Democrats propping up the man who tried to overturn the last presidential election. Forget Russian collusion. This was worse: Deep State interference. The newsers rallied round their anti-democratic hero.(Snip )But Melissa Quinn of the Washington Examiner tweeted the highlight of the day: "Holy moly, Louie Gohmert went there: ´I can’t help but wonder when I see you looking there with a little smirk how many times

Voter fraud investigation deepens

A voter fraud investigation in Dallas County continues to deepen with prosecutors asking a judge late last week to impound a "suspicious box" of mail-in ballot applications they believe may be tied to a political candidate in the May election. Investigators appear to be homing in on the candidate, who they did not name in new court documents but described as a suspect who lives in Grand Prairie. Authorities are also looking into two other suspects who are connected to the candidate and who prosecutors say assisted voters in mailing ballots in envelopes signed with suspected forged signatures. Those votes were

A few months ago, the Democrat-Media Complex was brimming with bravado: this fall’s congressional elections, the story went, were sure to rebuke the gauche interloper Donald Trump and swamp him and his minions in a giant “Blue Wave” that would restore Democrats’ control of the legislative branch, launch impeachment proceedings in the House, convict him in the Senate, and drive him from office as the wronged Dowager Empress of Chappaqua resumed her rightful place in the People’s House. Et voila! The restoration of the old order and a new tsunami of “progressive” regulations would ensure nothing like Trump would ever

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh

Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh incurred tens of thousands of dollars of credit card debt buying baseball tickets over the past decade and at times reported liabilities that could have exceeded the value of his cash accounts and investment assets, according to a review of Kavanaugh’s financial disclosures and information provided by the White House. White House spokesman Raj Shah told The Washington Post that Kavanaugh built up the debt by buying Washington Nationals season tickets and tickets for playoff games for himself and a “handful” of friends. Shah said some of the debts were also for home improvements.

MONTERREY, Nuevo Leon — Cartels are changing the drug trafficking trends by establishing large-scale methamphetamine production operations not far from the Texas border. The strong smell of chemicals led authorities to a clandestine laboratory where cartel members were manufacturing methamphetamine. The discovery was made in the municipality of Escobedo, an industrial zone in Nuevo León that is continuously fought over by organized crime. The clandestine “kitchen” is about 110 miles south of Roma, Texas. The property is surrounded by a wall and the top part covered with barbed wire. Parts of the property were hid with a green tarp.A law enforcement

The Obama administration, citing “political concerns” in 2013, derailed a plan to prosecute Taliban drug kingpins in U.S. courts that could have curtailed unprecedented heroin operations in Afghanistan that fueled the deadly opioid crisis across the United States, a Politico investigation found. Identified as Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents and U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) legal advisers at the time, the authors of the plan, code-named Operation Reciprocity, told Politico, “The real reason it was shut down was fears it would jeopardize the administration’s efforts to engage the Taliban in peace talks and still-secret prisoner swap negotiations involving U.S. Army Sgt.

Congress is finally closing in on the biggest perpetrator of the Trump-Russia election collusion hoax: the American news media. After taking an eight-year break from its vital role as the executive branch’s watchdog, the media have been on a frenzied, anti-Trump bender since 2016. Every conspiracy theory, every rumor, every dubious source has been chased down and breathlessly covered by once-credible news organizations. (This shameful interview on CNN with a drunken former Trump campaign aide could be a new low in journalism.) Despite sanctimonious protestations that the media are not—as President Trump suggests—the “enemy of the people,” their collective conduct before and

Do not talk to the Associated Press without a lawyer. The organization works for Bob Mueller in his fascist attempt to nullify the 2016 presidential election. Two news stories make this clear. 1. The Daily Caller reported, "Justice Department documents released on Friday confirm that the DOJ attorney known as Robert Mueller’s pit bull arranged a meeting with journalists in April 2017 to discuss an investigation into Paul Manafort.(Snip)2. From the Politico report, "A meeting last year where Associated Press reporters discussed with federal officials the news outlet’s investigation of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s finances may have led the FBI

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh allegedly mouthed the word “b*tch” at an image of Hillary Clinton during former President Bill Clinton’s 1997 State of the Union address. “I saw one of Ken Starr’s deputies, Brett Kavanaugh, who was sitting across from me, mouth the word b*tch when the camera panned to Hillary,” Media Matters founder David Brock wrote in his 2002 book Blinded by the Right. The excerpt from the book was tweeted by Robert Costa, a far-left reporter at the anti-Trump Washington Post.

The Pew Research Center asked Americans who they thought did the best job as president in their lifetime. The top pick: former President Barack Obama. Obama was the choice of 44 percent of the respondents in the poll, which was published Wednesday. Bill Clinton came in second with 33 percent and Ronald Reagan was third with 32 percent. Although not yet even halfway through his first term, President Donald Trump got 19 percent to place him in fourth place, ahead of both Bushes, John F. Kennedy and Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Liberals claim to despise Trump voters for all sorts of reasons, but Nancy Sinatra, daughter of the late great Frank Sinatra, made it clear on social media that she specifically hates Trump voters – and “especially the women” – for wanting to overturn Roe v. Wade. Hours before President Donald Trump announced his Supreme Court pick, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) tweeted out a dire warning that all of Trump’s potential nominees “want to take away a woman’s constitutional right to make her own health care decisions.” “We cannot go back to the days before Roe v. Wade,” she added.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has reportedly incurred a mountain of debt partly due to buying season tickets for the Washington Nationals. Kavanaugh reported having between $60,000 and $200,000 in debt on three credit cards and a personal loan in 2016, according to The Washington Post. The Nationals tickets were purchased for himself and friends over the past decade. White House spokesman Raj Shah told the paper that Kavanaugh has since paid off some of the debt while his friends paid him back for the tickets. Kavanaugh, who has not worked in the more lucrative private sector, showed assets between

There may not have been much new substance revealed during Peter Strzok’s testimony, as Jazz predicted, but everyone got to watch a lot of score-settling. Republicans in the hearing went after Strzok, Strzok went after them, Democrats and Republicans fought with and talked over each other, and voters got another reason to either cheer or boo depending on who was talking at the moment. [snip] How bad were the disconnects? No one seemed to agree how Strzok ended up at the table today, let alone what he could be asked. Strzok ended up facing a charge of contempt of Congress

Walking around New Orleans´ Lower Ninth Ward neighborhood, people are still angry at the impact of Hurricane Katrina and how unprepared the city was for the massive storm nearly 13 years on. But now some of their wrath is directed at Brad Pitt and his charity Make It Right. After the levees of the city´s industrial canal were breached, the Lower Ninth Ward of predominantly black and low-income families was decimated by the floods, with most houses swept away or left in ruins. Among the first to lend a helping hand was Pitt, who - along with his then wife Angelina Jolie - owned a house in New Orleans and set up the

Many liberal groups have expressed substantive concerns over President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. However, on Thursday, the abortion advocacy group NARAL voiced a rather odd, personal objection to Kavanaugh: his first name. “We´ll be D****D if we´re going to let five MEN—including some frat boy named Brett—strip us of our hard-won bodily autonomy and reproductive rights,” they wrote in a tweet.

It´s often been observed that special counsel Robert Mueller, assigned to investigate alleged Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential campaign, has yet to charge anyone with a crime involving Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential campaign. The biggest of Mueller´s indictments, that of one-time Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, has no connection at all to collusion. And until a few days ago, it appeared to have no connection to Donald Trump, either. Now, though, Mueller has revealed why he believes the Manafort prosecution is related to the 2016 Trump campaign. It´s a small part, a very small part, of the overall charges

WASHINGTON — Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times on Wednesday. Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide. But in an email sent this week to the nation’s 93 United States attorneys, Mr. Rosenstein asked each
