Sunday Talks: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo -vs- Margaret Brennan…

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo sits down for an interview with CBS’s Margaret Brennan on Face The Nation today. The primary topics of discussion were the denuclearization talks between President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong-un, the upcoming summit in Singapore and the Iran nuclear issues.

Secretary Pompeo outlines the U.S. position on DPRK negotiations from the perspective of bold and refreshing common sense. Therein, there’s an interesting part of the conversation where Margaret Brennan asks if full denuclearization is achieved will the U.S. remove sanctions… Secretary Pompeo almost said “DUH”; and reminded Ms. Brennan the purpose of the sanctions is to achieve denuclearization.  WATCH:

      You are 100% correct! Secretary Pompeo is everything you could ask for and than some. He absolutely owned this WHORE today. I loved when he said that PDJT wants to STARVE the Iranian Regime. That message was also intended for Macron, May, Merkel and any other European country.

      The deal with North Korea 🇰🇵 is 100% concluded! Every time Secretary Pompeo speaks, it solidifies that fact. Now we got to hear what our President will do in return for North Korea 🇰🇵. Our men and women will Make North Korea Great Again! In return for denuclearizing and getting rid of all ballistic missiles, our companies will take North Korea 🇰🇵 out of the late 19th century into the 21st Century.

      Our President sent a couple of tweets today in reference to China 🇨🇳. I have a funny feeling that part of these negotiations is the fact that China 🇨🇳 is going to pick up the cost for us transforming North Korea 🇰🇵.

      The WHORES, Democrats, RINOs, CoC, Europeans, Leftists etc. are going to be absolutely besides themselves that Chairman Kim is willing to let it all go in return for our Lion 🦁 to build his country into a 21st Century Metropolis.

      As for Iran 🇮🇷 and the 4 prisoners, Secretary Pompeo and VP Pence should have both told this WHORE that BHO had the opportunity to get them home when agreeing to the one sided Iran 🇮🇷 Deal. She and the rest would never ask that question again!

        What people are missing, North Korea just surrendered. US and South Korea have won the war. Korean War is over. Took over 60 years, and way too many lives, but…. This was accomplished weeks ago at Mar a Lago when XI and Trump sealed the deal and China gave up supporting NK. Trump has just accomplished what every President since Truman have wanted, but couldn’t do. Snifter clink to PDJT. History being made.

      All the former negotiations … er, capitulations … included bailouts that propped up the NORK dictators power and legitimacy. This time, this president pulled the rug out from under the dictators power. Sanctions that destroyed the dictators legitimacy. The short-term, misplaced, “compassion” for the North Korean people … only extended their suffering. Which is one of the reasons why liberalism is a mental disorder … because they cannot think strategically … long term … to actually SOLVE problems, not temporarily paper over them …

        Liberals like bail outs because they could take their cut off the top – never think other wise. Don’t you see how that explains why Obama sent pallets of unmarked money to Iran in the middle of the night.

        “Which is one of the reasons why liberalism is a mental disorder … because they cannot think strategically … long term … to actually SOLVE problems, not temporarily paper over them …”

        Everything is a money making scam to today’s liberals – they do not and never did care for the rest of us. George Soros sent his friends and relatives off to NAZI gas chambers so that he could sneak into their homes and take the things many of those families had handed down for generations.

    “The model is fundamentally different” (SOS Pompeo)

    Secretary Pompeo just sums up PDJT’s Foreign Policy, which CTH has so eloquently lays out here for us. The Council on Foreign Relations crowd is absolutely oblivious to “thinking outside the box” of their mentality since the organization’s inception, which is geared towards a NWO type arrangement for the nations -NOT strong individual nations, as ordained by God Almighty.

    “cut short the diplomacy” -(Margaret Brennan) – see my comment about SOS Pompeo. The current version of what was considered “diplomacy” was not working, as SOS Pompeo so aptly brings up.

    Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

    Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

For those of you on the fence about Sessions, I suggest you wait until at least ONE of these investigations finishes before you take a side. Let the man conclude his work before making a decision on him. Let’s take a look:

      Reminder on Ongoing Investigations (From @@_VachelLindsay_ on twitter: https://twitter.com/_VachelLindsay_/status/971287728083079173)

      Hillary Clinton ‘pay to play’ & Clinton Foundation. Agency: FBI. Location : Little Rock, Arkansas. Status: ongoing (started mid 2017)

    In this way, Secretary Pompeo reminds me of General U.S. Grant who was the clenched first that achieved the war aims of the man who directed him. Like Grant, implacable and utterly focused on achieving the will of his President, Pompeo appears a similar intelligent force of nature who may successfully translate the MAGA vision of Trump to the world.

    ZTE’s misdeeds…
    According to documents filed today, for a period of almost six years, ZTE obtained U.S.-origin items – including controlled dual-use goods on the Department of Commerce’s Commerce Control List (CCL) – incorporated some of those items into ZTE equipment and shipped the ZTE equipment and U.S.-origin items to customers in Iran. ZTE engaged in this conduct knowing that such shipments to Iran were illegal. ZTE further lied to federal investigators during the course of the investigation when it insisted, through outside and in-house counsel, that the company had stopped sending U.S.-origin items to Iran. In fact, while the investigation was ongoing, ZTE resumed its business with Iran and shipped millions of dollars’ worth of U.S. items there.

    ZTE also created an elaborate scheme to hide the data related to these transactions from a forensic accounting firm hired by defense counsel to conduct a review of ZTE’s transactions with sanctioned countries. It did so knowing that the information provided to the forensic accounting firm would be reported to the U.S. government by outside counsel. Outside counsel was not aware of this scheme and indeed was wholly unaware that ZTE had resumed business with Iran. After ZTE informed its counsel of the scheme, counsel reported – with permission from ZTE – the conduct to the U.S. government.

ZTE simultaneously reached settlement agreements with the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). In total ZTE has agreed to pay the U.S. Government $892,360,064. The BIS has suspended an additional $300,000,000, which ZTE will pay if it violates its settlement agreement with the BIS.”

    Very impressive. Clear, simplified the complex, added memorable sound bites. No wonder Pompeo was 1st in class at both West Point and Harvard Law. Command smarts.

    But he is just one of many such Trump ‘senior execs’ now. SoD Mattis: “What keeps you up at night? Nothing. I keep others up at night.” UN ambassador Haley. SoC Ross, many times. SoHUD Carson on public housing reforms. New SoHHS on drug pricing reform—‘I know how to reform the game because I played it from the other side’. EPA’s Pruitt on transparent science. His probable next step will be to make that policy ‘retroactive’ by reopening opaque secret science PM2.5 and Endangerment findings.
    The good senior exec list is much longer. Trump acting as terrific CEO of USA is clear. He is not a politician. He was a successful CEO of his own private company, simply now applyingbthose skills to USA ‘business’. As is taught at HBS—CEO basic job: Chose the strategic direction, chose the person to implement that direction. NEXT!
    BTW, my guess is that Possum ‘Silent Killer’ Sessions will not disappoint, else Trump would have already replaced him like TRex and Price and Flynn and Priebus. Trump is doing the Apprentice for real, with MAGA at stake. Enjoy the show, it is on every day now.

    Pompeii followed by Lindsey Graham is the ultimate contrast of a Statesman as opposed to a political hack.
    How can SC continue to send this clown to the Senate of the United States. He is without shame or self awareness, and really a danger to himself and others.

    Love, LOVE Secretary Mike Pompeo; he’s everything Hillary & John weren’t.

    You call him a toll booth operator, but Wallace delivered the election to Trump when hosting the third debate. Wallace did it while trying to destroy Trump with The West Wing playbook of going into detail on every topic that Republicans are of course too dumb to do. He opened with a discussion of guns, abortion, and judges, handing Trump Pennsylvania.

    I occurs that Sec’y Pompeo was well served by having a 15-month stint leading the CIA before taking on the State Department. T-Rex was perfect for consolidating the relationship with the Saudis; he knew them well. The rest of the world requires a deep understanding of just how badly the CIA has infiltrated other governments, especially North Korea.

      “I occurs”…right. You know what I mean.

      An interesting interview (with video) with Dr. Daniele Ganser on NATO’s Secret Armies is part of the following article on Operation Gladio, just one of the challenges faced by PDJT and his team as Gladio B exercises false flag operations around the world encouraged by the last four administrations of B/C/B and O. All the more reason to have a person of Sec’y Pompeo’s experience.

    Ok…who is the idiot who thinks that canceling the Iran deal makes it less likely that the Iran hostages will he returned???? If the Iran deal was so great, the hostages wouldn’t be there now!! Clearly having the Iran deal in place didn’t help these people come back.

    A thought from a one year lurker. I submit this with fear and trembling, after witnessing the brilliance and informed nature of this community. Great job, guys, and gals! So fwiw:

    One thing that I don’t see mentioned in the MSM or anywhere else other than the local China news is that the Norks test site has collapsed. This has the potential for making Chernobyl look like a kitchen fire. The first three “tests” were of nuclear devices that did not completely fission (the yields were sub-par) that means that the radiological hazard from partially fissioned active material would be some nasty stuff with half-lives measured in thousands of years. The cleanup of this site is going to cost someone some big-bucks. Imho, this was the catalyst that caused the “big panda” to put his paw down and tell Kim Jong underwear to knuckle under and get that mess under control.

    Loved Pompeo’s interviews with Wallace and Brennan. By watching Pompeo you can tell that he is excellent at sizing people up. He spoke to Wallace as an adversary, never breaking eye contact. And the “ludicrous” moment was case in point. He spoke to Brennan like a child, cajoling her with humor, treating her with exaggerated respect by calling her ma’am. Then politely schooled her calling her by first name as he explained how the world really works.
