Mike Pompeo rips John Brennan for
saying Kim Jong Un is ´duping´ Trump

Washington Examiner, by Naomi LIm

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 5/14/2018 11:13:39 AM

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo fired back at ex-CIA Director John Brennan Sunday for saying North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been "masterful" in "duping" President Trump, dismissing the comments as "silly." "I think former Director Brennan´s remarks are silly on their face," Pompeo said during an interview on "Fox News Sunday." Pompeo shrugged off Brennan´s concern that Trump was unrealistically raising expectations ahead of his historic summit with Kim on June 12 in Singapore. "We´re going to enter into a set of discussions with two nations doing their best to achieve outcomes for their own people that are

Trump is naive or is being fooled is one of their fallback memes. Brennan is pathetic. Pompeo is a great antidote.

From another article:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo sits down for an interview with the Deep State toll booth operator Chris Wallace. Customary cost of admission, five shillings.

The duplicitous toll booth operator won’t raise the barricade until Pompeo discusses the view of former CIA Director John Brennan. Pompeo exits the narrative and beats Wallace over the head with MAGA common sense: “Brennan’s remarks are silly“, moving on… (Video)

I suspect Trump´s exuberant optimism about the outcome of this summit is naive. I way more than suspect the Democrat-Media complex will do their level best to undermine it.

To be "fair", Brennan who served as Director of the CIA during the previous dark times, also wasn´t afraid to smackdown 0bama, as well. The difference is, while he claims to be Independent, he wouldn´t have been chosen then if he didn´t lean toward 0bama´s far left and served as we have seen, to protect those perps, like Hillary, in the traitorous terrorist (Iran) loving administration, especially the State Department.

Brennan forgets that it was always his job to spy on our enemies and give this information daily to the pResident in the form needed to conduct foreign policy. This does not include his "public" statements then or now, since it is obvious that he has no "filter" in them while President Trump is negotiating with an EVIL and dangerous head of state.

It will be obvious as the day gets closer, and afterwards, that between the dRATS sycophants and "fake news" media, there will be a concerted effort to scuttle President Trump, like the killing of the 0bama/Iran nuclear deal, because it exposes their desire to change America into a dystopian state someday. This is why people need to wake up and join with their churches to thwart these ideas that threaten Christianity here and the future of our children. Think local, state, and federal elections.

"Obama’s foreign policy failure; ISIS far from defeated"


FTA: ":For years now the Obama administration has been regaling us with stories of our great success in “degrading and destroying” the Islamic State terror group — but according to CIA Director John Brennan, nothing could be further from the truth."

Here´s why Brennan is wrong.

We are no longer dealing with self serving narcissistic politicians like BO or Jon Carry whose ONLY concerns are to make themselves look good.

Trump certainly has an ego. I can´t imagine a person that could rise to president that could not have one. But Trump´s ego is fed by being successful in his goals. Simply, success for Trump as President is getting the best for America. He is gratified when people recognize he HAS gotten a good deal.

Trump is a clever and clear negotiator. He is not going to fall for empty promises just to get a signature on a piece of paper for an ephemeral "deal". He has torn up several of BO´s such deals that were worthless and Trump knows they were.

Further,Trump as a businessman knows to project optimism about what you want as long as it can be justified. Kim meet with South Korea. He sent people to the Olympics. He ended the war stance with the south. He released American prisoners. These are all positive steps. They should be recognized and optimism should be expressed about the future ... until it makes sense not to.

Trump knows Kim is volatile and tricky. Hopefully a real accord can be reached but Kim has to KNOW he will be the loser if it is not. Trump has to help him keep face and give him the respect of the leader of a country. A deal IS possible and if it happens would be a remarkable accomplishment and open a positive path to the future for North Korea. That seems worthwhile to be optimistic about.

...Pompeo was being kind with his understated description of Brenan´s remarks as being "silly"...

...Brennan´s actions and words before leaving office and since are disgusting for a man who swore to uphold the constitution...

...week by week, month by month, the differences between the two administrations are breathtaking. Barry´s loyalists are exposed as the cultists they are...

Yet another chapter in U.S. foreign policy’s history of ignorant, bloody, expensive, futile, counterproductive attempts to reshape foreign societies ended with Muqtada al-Sadr’s decisive victory in last week’s Iraqi elections. He won despite the U.S government’s all-out support for puppet Prime Minister Haider al Abadi (who came in last), and after a decade and a half of U.S. occupation and war. Its most intense part, “the surge,” was directed largely against Sadr. On the bright side, the Wall Street Journal reported, in fact, the person best placed and most likely to pursue the one objective that is in America’s own interest:

Brian Kemp isn’t a political candidate to mince words. Some call him crazy. Others say he’s rude. Yet there is also a growing number of Georgia voters thinking he should be that state’s next governor. Call it the “Trump Effect” or simply Americans tired of being attacked for believing in common-sense values of smaller government, a strong military, and protected borders, but candidates like Kemp are shaking up the status-quo and that’s likely a good thing. It’s certainly interesting. As of yesterday, Mr. Kemp is now in second place and climbing among all Georgia GOP governor candidates. (Video)

WASHINGTON — President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign.

Clapper admitted the FBI “may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign,” referring to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. He explained away the possibility of an FBI informant spying on the campaign as the bureau was trying to find out “what the Russians were doing to try to substantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it.” Obama’s Director of National Intelligence then went on to say, “So,

The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders.
