Seems odd, doesn’t it?

There have been rumors for a few months that President Trump was looking to replace Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. If that seems a little odd to you, it’s because it is. Pompeo has arguably been Trump’s biggest supporter since he became president.

That being said, might Mike be on his way out? If so, might he be replaced by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin? What if Pompeo was replaced by NSA Robert O’Brien? Could it happen? Here’s the latest, via Politico:

SIREN — WAPO’S JOSH ROGIN: “Trump is already searching for his next secretary of state”: “The person most often mentioned to succeed [Secretary of State Mike] Pompeo is national security adviser Robert O’Brien. Trump really likes O’Brien, several officials told me, and has given him increased diplomatic responsibilities since he became the president’s fourth national security adviser in September. O’Brien stood in for Trump at the Association of Southeast Asian Nations summit in Thailand in October. He accompanied Vice President Pence and Pompeo to Turkey to negotiate a Syria cease-fire. …

“The other main contender at this point is Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Some officials believe Mnuchin is angling for the job, and some say he is simply in contention but not actively lobbying. Either way, he’s on the list. Mnuchin is very close to Trump personally and has been treasury secretary for almost three years.” WaPo

WATCH:

There’s a reason Trump wanted Pompeo to succeed Rex Tillerson as secretary of state. Pompeo is a smart and dedicated former Congressman and CIA director. He knows a thing or two about putting people in their place.

When it came to talking about freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Pompeo wasn’t playing around.

He called her out pretty hard.

From Daily Wire:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo slammed Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) over her anti-Semitic rhetoric during a Thursday interview with CBN News, calling her actions “deeply troubling” and “abhorrent.”

Pompeo: “To see this from a member of Congress like Congresswoman Omar is — I talked about this being dark. The rise of anti-Semitism in the United States and in Europe and in, frankly, all across the world is something that is deeply troubling, and to see someone — a duly elected congressman — behave in that way, to speak about anti-Semitism in that way, is of great concern.

Pompeo: “It’s a great concern to me. This administration speaks the truth, and anti-Semitism is unacceptable in any form from anyone, but to see it come from one of America’s leaders is just abhorrent.

WATCH:

Omar clearly stated that President Trump is not “human.” Now, the Democrat Congresswoman is doubling down and further attacking 45’s humanity.

Her tweet…

For many children, school lunch is the only meal they eat all day. Trump’s budget would cut $1.7 billion from child nutrition and eliminate food assistance for millions—literally taking food out of kids’ mouths.

This is not humane. This budget isn’t humane. He is not humane.

About Trump not being “human”…

WATCH:

Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) rushed to the defense of the embattled Omar after she tweeted an anti-Semitic remark.

Correction: after she tweeted another anti-Semitic remark.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

Lebron james

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.

Biden Administration Reveal Unwieldy Goal for Greenhouse Emissions

Is this The Green New Deal decentralized?

Published

on

As the White House returned to Democratic control in the early days of 2021, there was a real hope among those on the left side of the aisle that this would bring about a new prioritization of climate issues, and possibly even the “Green New Deal”. That plan, which was buoyed by the involvement of social media maven and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, was quickly labeled a deal-breaker by Republicans, and any mention of the Green New Deal would bring with it a great deal of political gravity. So, instead of pushing forward under the banner of that now-tainted name, President Joe Biden is simply decentralizing the plan and pulling several different climate levers at once. President Joe Biden is pledging to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 50% to 52% by 2030, in the latest push by the administration to aggressively combat climate change. The target, announced Thursday, more than doubles the country’s prior commitment under the 2015 Paris climate agreement, when the Obama administration set out to cut emissions 26% to 28% below 2005 levels by 2025. The U.S. is currently not yet halfway to meeting that goal. Biden’s pledge on Earth Day is in line with what environmental groups and hundreds of executives at major companies have pushed for. The president announce the target at the closely watched global leaders’ climate summit on Thursday, during which he hopes to urge global cooperation to address the climate crisis. Make no mistake about it:  This is still the Green New Deal…the left just isn’t brave enough to call it that.
