Nothing ever happened to her. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Video at link.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin held a press conference at the White House to detail the new measures, which President Trump promised were coming earlier in the week. The new sanctions target the Iranian aluminum, copper, iron and steel industries. The U.S. is also sanctioning eight senior Iranian officials who were allegedly involved in Tuesday’s missile attacks against U.S....

    Four days ago, the United States military executed a flawless precision strike that killed the worst remaining terrorist on Earth, Qasem Soleimani. The next day, President Donald J. Trump delivered a statement on the successful operation. “As President, my highest and most solemn duty is the defense of our nation and its citizens,” he said. “Soleimani was plotting imminent and sinister attacks on American diplomats and military personnel, but we caught him in the act and terminated him.” “Under my leadership, America’s policy is unambiguous: To terrorists who harm or intend to harm any American, we will find you. We...

    Iran is threatening to get revenge on the United States for killing terror leader Qasam Soleimani. If the regime does retaliate, the Trump administration warned them that they will regret it. Killing Soleimani last Thursday was a major military victory. As Secretary of State Mike Pompeo explained, the U.S. military had to strike because the Quds Force leader, who had orchestrated attacks on coalition bases in Iraq and the attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, was planning more attacks on Americans. But Democrats criticized President Trump's action, asserting that he needed them to sign off on the strike."The Trump Admin...

    Britain’s foreign secretary insisted Sunday that the UK is “on the same page” as the US over the assassination of Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani despite criticism over the lack of support. Dominic Raab backed the deadly airstrike after his US counterpart, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, complained that European allies “haven’t been as helpful” as he had hoped. “Let’s be very clear: he was a regional menace,” Raab told Sky News of Gen. Soleimani when asked if President Trump was right to order the killing. “We understand the position that the Americans found themselves in, and they have a...

    Most members of New Mexico’s congressional delegation reacted with ire to President Donald Trump’s drone strike that killed Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, a powerful commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps, early Friday at Baghdad International Airport. Soleimani’s death was first reported by official Iranian media and confirmed by a news release from the Department of Defense that said Soleimani was “actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq.” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told CNN that Soleimani had orchestrated an “imminent” attack but would not elaborate where or when the attack was to take place. Sen....

    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” anchor Chris Wallace asked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo if the airstrike that killed Qasem Soleimani was a “big step back’ in President Donald Trump’s commitment to stop endless wars. Wallace asked, “Is the president pulling us out of endless wars in the Middle East, or with his action this week, did he take a big step back in?” Pompeo said, “Endless wars are the direct result of weakness, and President Trump will never let that happen. We are going to get our facilities as hardened as we can possibly get them...

    Play Video Secretary of State Mike Pompeo offered a curt response to a question about whether President Trump's impeachment makes him appear vulnerable on the world stage. "You should ask Mr. Soleimani," Pompeo answered Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace this weekend. "I understand that," Wallace said before asking again if Trump could be seen as weak by foreign nations as a result of Democrats seeking to remove him from office. "I don't," Pompeo said.

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday night discussed the attacks on the United States' embassy in Baghdad with Fox News' Mike Emanuel. According to Pompeo, those who carried out the attacks are terrorists that are backed by the Islamic Republic of Iran. "Well, what you say was Iranian-backed terrorists. Many of them are individuals that have been designated terrorists by the United States and others, coming to the American embassy and posing a risk to the American diplomats and personnel inside the embassy," Pompeo explained. "You saw President Trump direct a quick, decisive, prudent response by making sure that...

    Nearly 100 mayors across the United States are begging President Trump to import as many refugees to the country as possible in order to “bring cultural vibrancy and diversity” to American communities.In a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last month, about 88 mayors — from Denver, Colorado to Columbia, South Carolina — urged Trump to end his latest executive order that gives American communities more veto power over whether they want refugees resettled in their communities.The mayors said that more refugees are needed to bring about “cultural vibrancy and diversity” to their often small towns, though they admit refugees are an initial...

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday that Israel has the “full right” to annex the Jordan Valley if it chose to, even as the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court warned the country against taking the bold step. Netanyahu said his proposal to annex the strategic part of the occupied West Bank was discussed during a late-night meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. He said they also agreed to move forward with plans for a joint defense treaty. The longtime Israeli leader, beleaguered by a corruption indictment and political instability at home, is promoting the two...

    FULL TITLE: Momentum grows for dropping 'President' from title of China's leader; Remove 'veneer' of legitimacy The Trump administration, with a simple change in rhetoric, has signaled a subtle shift in its approach to China in recent weeks — and in the process has deepened a rift with the Communist Party leadership in Beijing. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered a major foreign policy speech late last month in which he referred to Chinese leader Xi Jinping as “general secretary” rather than “president.” The seemingly minor tweak, national security sources and analysts say, carries a much deeper meaning and suggests...

    A federal judge ruled Monday that former White House counsel Don McGahn must comply with a subpoena from House Judiciary Committee Democrats. Justice Department said it would appeal the ruling, setting up a possible Supreme Court clash. Now the judge says she will pause her own order while the appeals process has a chance to play out. Trump claimed he is 'fighting for future Presidents and the Office of the President' 'Other than that, I would actually like people to testify'.

On Persian social media outlets and apps such as Telegram, which is extremely popular among Iranians, people are cheering the US support. People are asking the US to support them in other ways as well, in addition to helping them bypass the internet-blocks and shut-downs that the Iranian regime recently implemented. If the Iranians succeed in changing this Islamist regime, it will bring down the highest state sponsor of terrorism, the leading regime in human rights violations, the top state sponsor of anti-Americanism and anti-Semitic...

    US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday signaled his support for protesters in Iran, who have put renewed pressure on their government as it struggles to overcome the sanctions strangling the country after US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew America from Tehran’s nuclear deal with world powers. “As I said to the people of Iran almost a year and a half ago: The United States is with you,” Pompeo said, retweeting a Persian-language tweet he sent out in July 2018 that referenced a speech he made that directly addressed the Iranian people.
