Sunday Talks: CIA Director Mike Pompeo -vs- CBS John Dickerson…

CIA Director Mike Pompeo appears on CBS Face the Nation with DC advocate John Dickerson to discuss the issues surrounding DPRK ongoing hostility.  As with all MSM interviews the discussion begins with the first two minutes dedicated to undermining President Trump around the “weak Charlottesville response” narrative.

Fortunately Dickerson only stuck with that narrative for around two minutes and then began discussing North Korea, U.S. security policy, and the intelligence communities’ confidence in understanding the current level of the threat posed by Kim Jong-un.

    using Charlottesville this way is proof positive it was a purposeful planned terrorism to undermine PDJT.
    hope most see through It and the continued media yellow journalism.

      They do and that is why the MSM, Uniparty and Globalist are crying this evening! DOJ is taking on the case and whether the driver did what he did out of hate. They didn’t expect that and are mortified by that decision because the “Truth” will come out. They will drop this by COB today believe me.

        I’d like to know why this guy is already pegged as from the group that held the only permit in yesterday’s protest? Where is the proof…coz I need more than his high school teacher’s trip down memory lane.
        Go after VA Gov & Mayor for not citing the other two groups for permits and calling the police to stand down.

          Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe has been a Clinton operative for many years.
          Last year he restored the voting rights for more than 13 thousand felons in an attempt to stop Mr. Trump. This guy is a worthless weasel and always has been.

          Virginia has had some great governors ( Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe, John Tyler, etc.). McAuliff and his predecessor (Tim Kaine) are nothing but trash.

        Hope you’re right that it’s soon to be dropped, fleporeblog. (I do, BTW, believe you–you’re a great source of info for me.)

        Yet another example of a national disgrace when suffering is used as political gain so let’s hope it’s investigated well, the guilty punished and the lyin’ media and hacks in Congress soon shut up abt it.

        I don’t know whether we will like that result or not, as I don’t know what the answer is. The facts I’ve seen have him appear to at least be a hanger-on of nationalist groups with an old teacher suggesting he was on anti-psychotic drugs.

        So a fair investigation seems like it could tip either way as there have also been suggestions he panicked after being attacked, but I haven’t seen that from official sources.

        Do you have evidence/indications that it was not a hate crime?

        Real news seems extremely scarce on this case, which normally indicates to me that it isn’t neatly fitting their narrative,

      Mike did alright with the antifa riots. Remember DeFace the Nation’s Dickheadson was asking leading questions to bait Mike and he didn’t bite. The vehicle hit and run is currently the issue, but the investigation will uncover the antifa, BLM agitaters. Mike also defended PDJT’s comments. Didnt watch the rest.

    Folks the fear is getting to a boiling point! Our President is on the cusp of taking care of an issue that has been around for 64 years. We are closer today to seeing this conclude than an actual war including nuclear weapons. That fear is driving all of this because once our President resolves NK, his complete attention will turn to IRAN 🇮🇷! Russia 🇷🇺 has been neutralized because of our Energy dominance and ability. They will work with our President to destroy Barry’s one last foreign legacy. The secrets that will come pouring out will drive Barry and his minions insane. Our President will have the backing of 75% of our country because of what he accomplished in NK. Don’t get distracted in this Bannon, McMaster garbage. Israel 🇮🇱 and their great PM realize damn well what the plan is and are backing our President 1000%.

    Imagine how easier the Israeli and Palestinian issue is to resolve with Iran removed from the equation.

      M33: are we certain someone did die? This was a total black flag psyops event meant to trigger us the base of DJT and chancge the narrative into the ” Trump supporters are white supremacists”. So I’m not sure anyone actually died here. Remember Sandy Hook. Many are hired actors . That’s why I agree 100% with flepore analysi in that our President took the narrative away from them with his words . I was hoping for those very words and was amazed that he had the courage to say them!!! Love that man. MAGA

        Yes, someone died there. She was 32yrs old. (there is video!). Also, 2 cops died in a helicopter crash.

        ALSO, children died at Sandy Hook because a mentally ill gamer kid got his hands on his mother’s guns and SHOT UP A SCHOOL – it was not “staged”. It is so insane to even think this.

    “Fortunately Dickerson only stuck with that narrative for around two minutes…”

    Do we see the problem implied here? That is, we have no response to the narrative but are completely at the mercy of how persistently and aggressively they push it. So Pompeo, an obviously intelligent and capable man who works for the president, is for some reason unable to formulate a rebuttal to the narrative and to engage John Dickerson on this subject in a proactive, adversarial manner. We must just wait out the onslaught like baby seals.

      You must not have listened to the interview? Pompeo did a fantastic job of backing our President’s response and added that the DOJ will determine if the action of the driver was a hate crime. That is what caused Dickerson to drop it because they realize this is going to boomerang in their faces. Dickerson decided to move onto his other talking point which is why can’t we as a country just live with NK being able to deliver nuclear weapons on us. Dickerson nearly 💩 his pants with Pompeo’s response that our President will never ever allow it. This means NK will be resolved. How is left to be determined!

          He’s a spy. Spies are not agitators (usually). They are the ULTIMATE “pick your battle” types. So when Pompeo did that “yes and say different” (with a smile) answer, I just laughed. He was killing the presstitute, and the guy was making a face like “did he say yes?” Hilarious!

          Not every one of Trump’s tin soldiers should be the guy with the flamethrower. Pompeo is the salesman from Kansas. LOL.

          Trump’s team are like the cast of a movie where you go “there’s not WAY these guys are going to pull this off” – and they do it with every jaw dropping!

    Mike Pompeo is another excellent pick by President Trump:
    Pompeo “attended the U.S. Military Academy at West Point where he majored in mechanical engineering, graduating first in his class in 1986 and subsequently serving in the Army as an Armor Branch cavalry officer from 1986 to 1991.[11] He received his J.D. from Harvard Law School, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review. He then worked as a lawyer for Williams & Connolly.[12]

    Military service[edit]
    He served as a cavalry officer patrolling the Iron Curtain before the fall of the Berlin Wall.[13] He also served with the 2nd Squadron, 7th Cavalry in the Fourth Infantry Division.[14]

    Business career[edit]
    Pompeo founded Thayer Aerospace and Private Security.[15] In 2006 he sold his interest in Thayer (which was renamed Nex-Tech Aerospace). He became the President of Sentry International, an oilfield equipment company.”

    Then served in the House of Representatives.

    “Pompeo has been on the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and Committee on Energy and Commerce, and the following 3 subcommittees: the Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade, the Subcommittee on Energy and Power, and the Subcommittee on the CIA. He is also on the House Select Committee on the Events Surrounding the 2012 Terrorist Attack in Benghazi.”

    Most of the conservatives around the web are not buying it. The ‘conservative’ articles are SO boilerplate talking points in their presentation that it kind of stands out to even the casual reader. It’s obvious the ‘conservative’ bloggers are not talking about Antifa at all its very obvious when you read them. Its like they were given a set of talking points from the globalists and expected to abide by them even if it looked bad.

    • Then they are not conservatives, but lying globalists who don’t think the American voters should be allowed to put America first.

      People lie all the time. If they didn’t, we’d know their scam.

      When it comes to the media, I like the adage “believe nothing of what you read, and only half of what you see”.

      What do McCain, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Mitt Romney, Ted Cruz and John Kaisich have in common? Not only are they failed presidential candidates, but they also self describe themselves as conservatives. They are not. They are uniparty globalists. They care nothing for the voters. They only care for the agenda of their financiers. George Soros is one of them.

      I could call myself a world famous actor. It doesn’t make it true.

  11. I think it’s great they start with the Charlottesville question.

    All I’ve seen today is their narrative being popped every time. Of course, by people in the administration, and not irrelevant pipsqueaks. After all, they are painting the narrative of Trump being responsible. This gives us an opportunity to correct the record. Indeed, it makes them look as if they believe in tolerance, for only certain people, and that they do not think tolerance and non violence should be applied to all. Which is actually the case.

    Considering we know what their mission is, I think the MSM were silly to bring it up. It seems to have undone all their hard work. Ahhh. Sad.

      takeadeepbreath: “After all, they are painting the narrative of Trump being responsible.”

      The whole idea of this exercise by those on the Left is to try to tie Republicans and Trump to the White Supremacists/Nazis. They want to characterize Trump and every one of his supporters as racists, and so when Trump fails to single out White Supremacists in his condemnation, the Left jumps on this as evidence that Trump supports their ideology.

      The Left always portrays the Right as a bunch of racist nazis and this is just a continuation of this effort. They want to lump all conservatives and Republicans into the White Supremacist camp. And then we get these virtue-signaling Republicans like Rubio and McCain taking the Left’s White Supremacist theme.

      Rubio and McCain want *so* much to be loved by the MSM. In fact, too many Republicans have a problem dealing with the MSM. Either they want to be loved by the MSM and pander to their Leftist beliefs, or they are afraid of the MSM and avoid them when they can and pander to them when they can’t. It’s really pretty sickening and more than that, it harms the United States when Republicas go along with, and promulgate Leftist lies and half-truths.

      Hang in there, Trump. Stay focused on your agenda and leave these nags in the dust.

    There’s so much wrong with this Virginia protest thing. Here’s a few – hope they’re right.
    1) The govt. in 1929 put their official approval on Confederate graves and monuments, and added in 1958 that all Confederate veterans are now U.S. veterans.
    2) The protestor gathering was not violent until Leftist agitators showed up to suppress their free speech.
    3) The media as well as the politicians are denouncing the hate, ostensibly by the protestors on the far Right, but I don’t see any denunciation of the violent Leftists who show up at protests with the intent to commit violence.
    4) Real free speech, for example Milo speaking at Berkeley, is still not allowed. That’s a huge problem for free speech.
    5) When Hitler came to power in Germany, the so-called troublemakers were the first to go. The media, politicians, and Leftists like the Southern Poverty Law Center are up in arms about these “far Right” protestors, but my senses tell me that these protestors are not the real danger – the real danger comes from the very people who are complaining the loudest about them.

      Addendum: My bigger point was that we used to prosecute crime, not thought-crime. The Right-leaning protestors are the thought-criminals, whereas the “Antifa” thugs are committing real violence and crime.

    Is there some evidence that the car plowing into people was a false flag, a conspiracy set up by the left? If there is I haven’t seen it. I think it entirely plausible and very likely the driver was enraged by the actions of antifa earlier in the day and over reacted in the extreme. These are highly volatile people in highly volatile situations. Let’s not try to pin this on the left without evidence. That’s what the left does to us. We have to be better than that.
