    Sec Pompeo gave two interviews, one to Dickerson that was fairly straightforward and then Fox’s Mike Wallace.

    Oh Lordy, you should see Sec Pompeo give the death stare to Mike Wallace, and the greatest one word smack down, ‘no’ . Classic

      BTW, both interviews covered the same ground. Must be a checklist circulating. Dickerson was respectful, Wallace was a whine.

        “Dickerson was respectful”

        He deserves credit for that. Perhaps some of these MSM people sense that the adversarial/confrontational approach by those afflicted with “Trump Derangement Syndrome” is not in their future interests, except for mollifying the minority of rabid leftists hogging the airwaves to give the appearance that there are more of them than of us.

      • Sorry, I disagree on Dickerson – that snarky “since you won’t answer, I’ll take that as a yes.” Well, OF COURSE, the caravans are an incentive for PDJT’s base. That is NOT PDJT’s fault!!!!! What, he is supposed to ignore reality??!!?? I just can’t force myself to watch Wallace – I really can’t! He is just sooo smarmy, arrogant and sneaky.

          It is all relative. You you want snark and whine, watch the Wallace interview.

          My baseline for the MSM is if they don’t snarl, snap or vomit on TV, that counts as ‘respectful’. He had to show some pique or the audience will get confused at what channel they are watching. 😀

          Yeah, that declaration of success despite his narrative building FAIL really got me POed.

          Besides, all evidence proves this is a Leftist assault intended to sway the Mid-Terms their way, and they failed, because Trump. So how does reaping the political benefits of his success in order to elect a Congress that will act to secure that very border via The Wall and Sane Laws make him, make him, what? Really? Where’s the bad?

          We win, you lose, shut up or ask a real question.

      “the greatest one word smack down,”

      Over the years, IMO most of the Republicans were not doing us any favors by going on these Main Sewer Media shows. They were either rolled over by the MSM “hosts”, or complicit with the NWO agenda (either overtly or subtly).

      Sec. Pompeo is the exception and it is refreshing to see someone up there that will “not take the bait” or allow themselves to be steamrolled over by the enemedia.

      Dickerson was controlled very nicely by our Secy of State Pompeo. Mike wasn’t being fooled by any of the “gotcha” questions, especially the one about PDJT crafting his invading caravan policy around political benefit. Dickerson is such a cheap, blatant Uniparty/Globalist shill.

        Dickerson intended to keep up the fake narrative that Trump is politicizing the caravan. That’s all. It won’t matter that Dickerson is wrong. This narrative will be overshadowed by some big-time truth bomb blasts.

    I love Pompeo…he just states the actual facts of a matter, in almost a flat affect, devoid of any emotion, and is entirely up on whatever the President’s position may be on a wide variety of issues.
    He is really a hard-ass interview: will not allow BS, just contradicts or agrees on fact alone.
    My pick for the President’s successor.
    If he stays at State during Trump’s second Term, he will have the number of every white hat and black hat on the world stage.

        Germany, France and UK politicians signed up to the Iran deal, so they are just avoiding embarrassment. Meanwhile back to REALITY, Trident Juncture is underway,where “all NATO Allies are testing their ability to defend our populations and territories, deter potential adversaries and work together with partners in NATO’s biggest exercise in recent years. With Around 50,000 participants from NATO and partner countries, some 250 aircraft, 65 ships, up to 10,000 vehicles.
        (Russian knickers are in such a twist, they conducted missile tests smack up against Norway’s maritime defense border).

        And Germany accepted and facilitated “the US military sent over 600 containers of ammunition to Europe, the largest single shipment in more than 20 years. The move comes just a week after the Pentagon announced the deployment of a 6,000-strong tank brigade to Eastern Europe next year.
        Some 620 shipping containers packed with ammunition arrived at the northern German port of Nordenham at the end of October. There they were loaded onto trains and transported to the Miesau Army Depot for storage and distribution to other locations across Europe, the US Army said in a statement”.

      My God, the European officials are such weasels. Sure go ahead and stick up for the criminal dictators in Iran. You know, the guys who starve, torture and murder their own people in order to send their dwindling resources to foment terror in the ME and well beyond. Why the hell do the “ministers” so “deeply regret” reimposing sanctions on such horrid rulers?

      Obviously it must be that their own selfish interests are threatened, likely blood money paid by the mullahs for their complicity. I’m very sure Pompeo has told them they gotta decide whether they’re part of the solution or the problem regarding the evils in Iran. And if they insist on being aligned with the problem it’s gonna cost them big. Frankly I don’t care how much it hurts the Europeans, in fact I hope the sanctions bite ’em hard, they’re statements tell us they deserve what they get.

      They certainly do regret. Where do you think a sizable chunk of our massive payments to Iran really went? I’d guess UK, France, and Germany. (THAT’S why the PM’s of all three of these nations made separate trips to DC, trying to talk PDJT out of ending bho’s li’l “Plan of Action”.)

He doesn’t even try to hide his bias. I wonder if there is a video of his response to Trump’s win in Nov 2016. Would love to see that. 🙂

    I posted elsewhere about how the Achilles’ heel of well-meaning commenters at blogs like this one is that people assume that in a given conflict, there is a “good” and a “bad” actor. I call it “binary thinking.”

    Exhibit A: Practically every comment on this article.

    You folks are upset at things the Iranians did, mostly in the 70’s and 80’s.

    Point taken. I was a kid back then and even then I remember the anger I felt.

    But…

    How many 9/11 hijackers were Iranian?

    How many financial links were established between the hijackers and Iranian intelligence?

    How much did Iranian officials donate to the Clintons in exchange for getting arms sales approved by HRC when she was Secretary of State?

    Remember last Summer when the Iranian government blatantly and publicly threatened Canada with 9/11-style terrorism on Twitter?

    Replace “Iranian” with “Saudi” and hopefully my point will hit home.

      I have another question: How much of those billions that Obama gave the Mullahs has been used to support the terrorists around the ME, Europe, and – yes – here in the US. Terrorists who kill people just because they don’t bow down to the mullahs. Children. Men and women just wanting to go about with their lives – all cut short because of the Mullahs. The Saudi Prince is reining in his terrorist supporting people but who is reining in the mullahs?

    • Ed,
      I don’t think the folks here are naive about the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, nor are they blinkered to the fact that there are not truly “white hats” in the Middle East. This is about strategic foreign policy that protects our national interests. And of course there are multiple aspects to that.
      Pompeo strikes me as well able to handle such subtleties as well as adept at leveraging US power to advance our interests in the region. Iran is currently the #1 state sponsor of terror, worldwide. An acknowledged fact.
