Secretary of State Pompeo Discusses Current World Events: Diminishing Globalism -vs- Rising Nationalism…

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo goes one-on-one with Martha MacCallum to discuss his message to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland and Trump’s approach to NATO.  This is a really strong interview.

Secretary Pompeo brilliantly outlines the value of the nation state, and the principle that when a coalition is formed all members within that coalition (ie. NATO) have a responsibility to participate.  Watch:

    How can the left counter this guy? I mean, would they really try to argue that the US is NOT a force for good? Love Pompeo.

    Why not? They’ve done it many times before…

    “We don’t pay much attention to advice that Secretary Kerry is providing to our administration. We’re doing our best to clean up the failures that occurred on his watch.”

    Pivot and slam.

      John Kerry’s FaceBook entry:

      Hi there to all my admiring fellow bloggers. My name is United States Secretary of State, formally Senator, John Forbes Kerry from the great state of Massachusetts. You can call me JFK if you want. I was born on December 11, 1943, although people tell me that I look at least 20 years younger. It’s probably my great hair and rugged good looks.

      I graduated from Yale in June 1966 in the top 1% of my class. To earn extra money during the summers, I loaded trucks in a grocery warehouse and sold encyclopedias door to door. That is probably one of the reasons that I am so humble. Over my four years at Yale, I maintained a 96 grade average and received a 101 average in my senior year.

      Before becoming the greatest Secretary of State America has ever been blessed to have, I was one of the most senior members of that grand and much loved and respected institution known as the U.S. Senate. Probably the only Senator who was even a little tiny bit greater than me and a little tiny bit more humble was my dear friend Ted Moore Kennedy. I also have a very high IQ. Very high. At least 250 on a bad day. Much higher than that creep who stole the election back in 2004 from me. I know that he stole it because exit polls are never ever wrong.

      I am also a great war hero. I set all kinds of records for heroism when I was in Vietnam. I was grievously wounded at least three times yet continued to insist on staying in the fight when lesser men would have given up. I won the bronze star with extra V’s for extra valor and the Silver Star for defeating a whole battalion of NVA with my bare hands. Sometimes I feel like a had to carry all the water for those other ungrateful swiftboaters.

      I sometimes like to chill out after a long day of serving the American people by having a double martini with my good friend Ted, although I can’t do that now as he has stopped drinking. We used to have a servant bring 21 double martinis. I got one and Ted got one for each of his fingers and each of his toes. Contrary to what some of my very few enemies say I never marry women for just their money. They must also have a pulse. BTW, did I mention that I was in Vietnam? I was also in Cambodia, so don’t forget that!

      I would like to think that I am open minded, honest, polite, heroic, trustworthy and humble. And I appreciate the same qualities in others although I am realistic enough to know that no one else could come close to me.

      Turn offs: other politicians who spend more on haircuts than I do. That is just not right.

      Who I’d like to meet:
      …other progressive bloggers. Other great war heroes who hate that damn S-T-U-P-I-D Texan who stole the election from me by using Karl Rove’s mind control machine and those lying sons of ###### swiftboat ######## whose pants are on fire! Cool people who live close to Washington D.C. so that we can get together, talk about you for about 30 seconds and then spend about 9 hours talking about me. BTW, did I mention that I was in Vietnam and Cambodia? Just one more BTW, if anyone has found my magic hat please return to me and I will reward you with a 32 ounce bottle of Heinz Ketchup autographed by me.

        JohnCarlson, this pompous fool and says 250 IQ which never ever is real, and practically maybe 1/2 of Trump’s and my IQ. I don’t brag about being an A study in real educating schools, and also in my Master’s in Oriental Med, nor in my doctoral studies always an A rarely a B, and he never admits his is Jewish but using an Irish name was better for working with the Clintons in commit serious crimes while in office and hoping karma is fast approaching this balloon of nothing. You did a horrible job, Kerry, and still keep running off at the mouth without connecting to your little selfish braggart not so good brain.

  5. Absolutely amazing, intelligent, calm and powerful words from Sec. of State Mike Pompeo!
    A shining example of what a patriot of the highest order looks, acts and sounds like.
    We are the lucky ones to have him as our Sec of State!
    His Answers gave me chills.

    Sorry for the second post, but OMG every time he speaks, I listen with rapt attention. The confidence he exudes — the clear delivery of a message without hesitation or obfuscation — is incredible.

    Run for the Senate? Heck, he should run for President — in 2024, of course!

    Internationalism [now called Globalism] seeks to make a nation a mere geographical expression. It is an anemic, bloodless, soulless conception of life decorated with idle phrases regarding humanity and justice.

    In the mid-1800s, the British and Americans imported opium to China, creating 4-12 million Chinese addicts and leading to two Opium Wars. John Kerry’s ancestors were some of the opium traders.
    If the Politico report is accurate, the State Department under John Kerry ripped apart the Cassandra Project, an 8-year drug trafficking investigation into the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States.
    What a cursed bloodline!

      I believe George Soros is pushing Heroin, Cocaine, Meth on the US through the Mexican Cartels. Western Canada is already awash in this drug mess. Just like Opium into China, Heroin is coming here.

        annie, I will always believe soros’ involvement in nefarious, illegal activities and believe he wishes to destroy Western civilizations and supports any effort to achieve this goal. He still suffers from the “God” complex he professes to having as a very young child. He worships at the altar of satan.

    We do believe that, in the long run, ideas –ideals– are all that matter. Much as murderous, thieving collectivist/Statists abominate all free societies (see Karl Popper, 1945; Eric Hoffer, 1951), they have nothing to offer but blood-tinged poverty amidst aristoidal oppressors’ “more than oriental splendor”.

    Part of realists’ peculiar passivity in face of Rats’ relentless onslaughts against Jefferson’s American Experiment stems from disbelief that psychopathic ideologues so willfully pollute their own pond, sinking everything of worth in bottom ooze. Surely, no-one could be that ignorant, so self-destructively malignant, slitting their own throats– but they are.

    Generation X born 1968, the Class of 1990, and Millennials’ Class of 2012 born 1991, are both notorious for lack of historical context-and-perspective. But paradoxically, in times of radical change on every level –how radical, only those with such perspective can appreciate– this may redound to Gen Y’s advantage, foreshadowing a revelatory re-awakening made “more powerful, perhaps more protracted” as insights re-discover ancient truths. As ever, all it takes is one leader to plant and cultivate those Seeds… and as of January 2019, we sense that improbable Man of Destiny is DJT.

    Pompeo would have none of it.

    The whole purpose of NATO was to counteract the Warsaw Pact.When that fell apart NATO’S purpose was over.Since then it has become an organization in search of a mission. Nothing but the muscle for the Globalist Banksters/Fruadsters that find it in their best interests to keep the flames of conflict burning in the world.Now the E.U. wants its own army.Watch-it will be used not to protect from external threats but rather to quell any internal threats that is sure to rise up.Like those pesky yellow jackets.

      Countering the Russians is a good mission because they’re not that great, but the globalists and socialists of Europe — like Merkel, Macron, and May — have metastasized into something so much worse…

    It is very comforting to me that PDT has Mike Pompeo by his side, in lock step with his policies and agenda. He has more loyal cabinet members now. and Mick Mulvaney is an excellent choice for COS. Those two are dynamic in my opinion. I pray every day for Mike Pompeo’s safety as he flies all over the world for our benefit.
