Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Introduces The Iran Action Group and Director Brian Hook…

Earlier today Secretary of State Mike Pompeo introduced the newest geopolitical strategy from the U.S. Department of State, the Iran Action Group.  The goal of the coordinated effort is to assemble a unified action front from all allies toward the destabilizing activity stemming from within the Iranian regime.

.

[Transcript] SECRETARY POMPEO: Good afternoon, everyone. Today I am happy to announce the creation of the Iran Action Group.

The Iran Action Group will be responsible for directing, reviewing, and coordinating all aspects of the State Department’s Iran-related activity, and it will report directly to me.

For nearly 40 years, the regime in Tehran has been responsible for a torrent of violent and destabilizing behavior against the United States, our allies, our partners, and indeed the Iranian people themselves. In May of this year, President Trump withdrew from the flawed Iran nuclear deal, which failed to restrain Iran’s nuclear progress or its campaigns of violence abroad. In its place President Trump has instituted a campaign of pressure, deterrence, and solidarity with the long-suffering Iranian people.

Our hope is that one day soon we can reach a new agreement with Iran. But we must see major changes in the regime’s behavior both inside and outside of its borders. The Iranian people and the world are demanding that Iran finally act like a normal nation.

The Iran Action Group will drive daily progress on these objectives and I hope do much more.

We are committed to a whole-of-government effort to change the Iranian regime’s behavior, and the Iran Action Group will ensure that the Department of State remains closely synchronized with our interagency partners. The IAG will also lead the way in growing efforts with nations which share our understanding of the Iranian threat. President Trump is making our Iran strategy a true multinational undertaking, and the Iran Action Group will be key to further progress in that regard.

I am also announcing that Brian Hook will lead the Iran Action Group with the formal title of Special Representative for Iran. Brian has served as the Director of Policy Planning here since February of 2017, and he has worked tirelessly to advance President Trump’s foreign policy priorities across multiple domains. Brian’s diplomatic expertise and broad experience with Iran policy makes him an outstanding choice to lead the State Department’s Iran Action Group.

Since the President’s decision to withdraw from the Iran deal in May, Brian has played an important role in shaping our strategy of maximum diplomatic and economic pressure.

We are going to continue to rely on him and his team to lead our efforts to counter the Iranian regime’s malign activity, to support Iranian voices, and to galvanize international support for our efforts.

And with that, I’d like to introduce our new Special Representative for Iran, Brian Hook.

    Obama’s approach to Iran was pure out and out bribery. And as we all know, bribery never ends well for the briber. We should be worried that the Mullahs will successfully muscle the EU into disobeying the sanctions.

      I regard Soebarkah’s (a.k.a. Obama’s) approach to be one of American taxpayer subsidies for the Iranian regime.

      I’ve seen no evidence whatsoever he was attempting to bribe them to do anything.

      Rather, he and his boss Jarrett were merely enablers and cheerleaders for what the mullahs already wanted to do.

      “Obama’s approach to Iran was pure out and out bribery.”

      The BHO regime’s goal was to move away from supporting Saudi Arabia (Sunni) to side with Shia (Iran) and against Israel. Now, with the Iranian advances in the Middle East (Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and Libya), Saudi Arabia has become a secret pseudo-ally of Israel and PDJT has shifted back to the long-standing support for the interests of Saudi Arabia and Israel where it should have been all along.

      BTW, since Russia is allied with Syria and Iran, who then are the real conspirators with Russia? Who turned Syria into a failed state allowing the Iranians to have influence? Who withdrew US troops from Iraq allowing the Iranians to move in? Who gave billions to Iran? The scum no longer in office and, primarily, the former Secretary of State.

    It is actually painful to witness these media people blabber idiotic comments instead of even making an attempt at asking an intelligent question. How can somebody so obviously stupid as Andrea Mitchell consider themselves a journalist? It boggles the mind.
    Also, I believe the Iran Action Group might benefit from the addition of one former member of the Obama administration. That would be Eric Holder. His expertise in smuggling illegal weapons would be most helpful in arming the Iranian general population since they will eventually be forced to confront the Revolutionary Guard forces.

        The Media has lost all control:
        06/27/18
        “Seventy-two percent of Americans believe “traditional major news sources report news they know to be fake, false, or purposely misleading,” according to a new poll from Axios and SurveyMonkey released on Thursday.

        The poll of nearly 4,000 adults shows that 92 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents “say that traditional news outlets knowingly report false or misleading stories at least sometimes,” a finding in line with other recent polls conducted by Pew Research and Gallup….”

        An earlier poll by the American Press Institute:
        Apr, 2016 Only 6% of Americans trust the media
        “[….]A survey of more than 2,000 adults released on Sunday showed that trust in the media has dipped to dramatically low levels. About 52 percent of respondents said they have “some confidence” in the press, while 41 percent said they have “hardly any confidence.”

        Over the last two decades, research shows the public has grown increasingly skeptical of the news industry,” the report from the American Press Institute reads. “The study reaffirms that consumers do value broad concepts of trust like fairness, balance, accuracy, and completeness. At least two-thirds of Americans cite each of these four general principles as very important to them.” […]”

        This is why the Progressives are going after the internet. They have lost control of the propaganda and people are learning the truth.

    Keep your chin up Treepers. You and like-minded people are a “parallel polis”

    The associate of Czech leader Vaclav Havel, Vaclav Benda, wrote of anti-totalitarian dissidents consciously developing a “parallel polis” specifically focused on self-education and friendship in another society in which the formal institutions had been corrupted beyond repair. (Polis is an ancient Greek word roughly translated as “a tight-knit, familial local community dedicated to the common good.”) Rod Dreher explored this concept in an interview with Benda scholar Flagg Taylor

      Jordan Peterson is anti Trump.

      “He has attributed the rise of Donald Trump and far-right European politicians to the push to “feminize” men, saying “If men are pushed too hard to feminize they will become more and more interested in harsh, fascist political ideology.”[103] (Wikipedia)

      Calling President Trump a fascist and his MAGA a “harsh… ideology” merely shows that Peterson also cannot bear to go against the PC of his Uni colleagues in their near-universal antiTrumpness.

      Petersen, a psychologist, also makes claims that religion is merely an idealogy. Clearly he has chosen to believe there is no God. “…he has stated that holds an agnostic position on the existence of God, and his identification with Christianity is based more on an identification with the importance of religion for ethical reasons.[113]” He can identify with Christianity all he wants, but he is NOT one, and by claiming to be one he identifies himself as a liar.

      Petersen’s ideas might have some appeal, but he is no hero. He had plans to use AI to “prove” that SJW ideas had infiltrated many university courses, but put it off when Donald Trump won the US election.

      Apparently Peterson did not care enough about his own ideas to propound them if any part of them might help PDJT. Apparently he hates the fact that his ideas (mostly based on Christian morality although he is not a Christian) are coinciding with Trump Doctrine.

        Oh great. Pompeo hires someone who ticks every enemy box. Presumably he was shopping for a hardline neocon to put pressure on Iran, not necessarily a bad thing ( e.g., Bolton ), but this guy looks pure enemy to me.

        I bet he will be found to be connected to Obama and the Iran cash deal too. I hope Pompeo knows what he is doing and is not letting another enemy take up a forward position behind the wire.

    Excellent article. The terrorists in New Mexico were set free while Manafort sits in solitary over a tax issue. As the article points out most tax issues are not resolved through criminal litigation- they’re typically settled financial with interest and penalty assessed.

    Iran and others are funding these terrorists. Perhaps the Iranian action group needs to look at doj concerns regarding letting terrorists go free. Also the CI part of the fbi doesn’t play with the law enforcement side. The ci side is happy just watching terrorists and not interested in prosecuting. It’s a waste of the action group resources if the doj is turning terrorists loose.

Those bankers took money out of this Country to finance Japan in a war against Russia. They created a reign of terror in Russia with our money in order to help that war along. They instigated the separate peace between Germany and Russia, and thus drove a wedge between the allies in World War. They financed Trotsky’s passage from New York to Russia so that he might assist in the destruction of the Russian Empire. They fomented and instigated the Russian Revolution, and placed a large fund of American dollars at Trotsky’s disposal in one of their branch banks in Sweden so that through him Russian homes might be thoroughly broken up and Russian children flung far and wide from their natural protectors.….

    The “Whole of Government” doctrine is amazing. It works. Why haven’t we done that for the past 240 years?
    About a year ago, Sundance did one of my favorite articles on how the Trump Admin was pressuring China, on trade, from every possible angle. Sundance saw the big picture approach as PDJT moved across the globe, squeezing Chairman Xi, and thus, the Chinese economy. It was the best way to attack China, via their Chairman, as he is the touted expert on all things ‘economic’.
    In Sundance’s article, he explained how we left China hanging in Venezuela, about a 60 billion dollar loss to China. Another one was Pakistan, we removed our financial support and caused China to spend more. Sundance gave about 9 examples, all over the world. The last piece of the puzzle was DPRK.
    It was a brilliant essay. Again, Sundance seeing around the corners where no one else looks.
    In Iran, PDJT and the team, understands this philosophy, game plan, playbook, and we are repeating it to take out the Mullahs.
    It’s time to lead.
    Flex our muscles.
    We’re bringing peace to the world, which will obviously lead to safety, security, and economic boom.
    In this way, MAGA goes global.

    Finally got to see the video. Great plan especially since our “allies” are a mixed bag on this. Dont know who the female reporter is that implied PDJT and SoS Pompeo are in disagreement on Iranian policy. PDJT, “meet without preconditions” Pompeo, “Iran has to comply with 12 item list.” Hook, “those two things work in parallel.” Duh, typical MSM misinformation.

    Oh and Andrea made a fool out of herself as we all know. The audience did laugh out loud at her. She does not know when to stop. Blurting out incoherent remarks while Hook was trying to begin his briefing. I can only guess what Pompeo and PDJT were laughing about in the picture of them at the Cabinet meeting.

    Andrea needs to retire and get a gig on SNL with Alex.
