  • Mike Pompeo Rips Hollywood, ‘Corporate Acquiescence’ To Communist China

    For too long, Hollywood, American corporations, and even American sports (see: NBA) have self-censored to appease communist China. Secretary of State Mike Pompe says that era needs to end. Speaking at the Nixon Library in California, Pompeo gave a lengthy speech about the dangers of the United States doing anything and everything possible to squeeze cheap dollars out of the Chinese Communist regime: In Hollywood, not too far from here – the epicenter of American creative freedom, and self-appointed arbiters of social justice – self-censors even the most mildly unfavorable reference to China. This corporate acquiescence to the CCP happens...

    The New York Times ’ “1619 Project,” which examines the role of slavery in U.S. history, was not the central focus of his speech, nor of the new draft report that his controversial Commission on Unalienable Rights produced. But his comments have sparked fresh debate and criticism among diplomats who continue to raise alarm bells over long-standing issues of systemic racism and diversity challenges in the State Department. Five officials who spoke to Foreign Policy on condition of anonymity described a reaction of shock and fury. “Pompeo made it very clear where he stands and reaffirmed the purpose of the...

    When Secretary Mike Pompeo first set out on this journey to get back to the real heart of human rights, no one could have possibly predicted the year our country would have. Shaken by outrage, unrest, and the growing insistence that America is too flawed to fix, a return to our roots will only dredge up more hard feelings, some say. On the contrary, Pompeo insists. Maybe the best time to revisit all that's pure and good about our nation is when people are determined to destroy it. "Some say the report's timing couldn't be worse," he said. "I say...

    During a speech on Thursday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated that America was far from perfect at its founding, but America’s “founding principles gave us a standard by which we could see the gravity of our failings” and criticized the New York Times’ 1619 Project for arguing that “America’s institutions continue to reflect the country’s acceptance of slavery at our founding.” Pompeo stated that the Chinese Communist Party “must be gleeful” when they read these arguments, and that rioters “have taken these false doctrines to heart” and “thus see nothing wrong with desecrating monuments to those who fought for...

    Is the United States, preoccupied with a pandemic and a depression created by that medical crisis, prepared for a collision with China over Beijing's claims to the rocks, reefs, and resources of the South China Sea? For that is what Mike Pompeo appeared to threaten this week. "The world will not allow Beijing to treat the South China Sea as its maritime empire," thundered the secretary of state. "America stands with our Southeast Asian allies and partners in protecting their sovereign rights to offshore resources ... and [we] reject any push to impose 'might makes right' in the South China...

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday attacked the media as promoting Chinese propaganda and criticized the U.S.’s national reckoning on racism in remarks unveiling the State Department’s first report on the Commission on Unalienable Rights. The commission, meant to establish a foundational text for how the U.S. defines human rights, has been criticized as creating a blueprint to ignore modern understandings of women's reproductive rights and protections for LGBTQ individuals. Pompeo, in a speech at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, didn’t touch on these ideas but focused on the criticism of how Black Americans are treated in the...

    "To hear Ambassador Rice talk that way, it's just crazy," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday, following Rice's Sunday appearance on "Meet the Press," where she blasted the Trump administration for "incompetence" regarding raw intelligence that Russia paid the Taliban to kill American troops in Afghanistan. In her Sunday appearance, Rice acted as though the unverified intelligence about Russian bounties was factual. "The message to Vladimir Putin is you can kill American service men and women with absolute impunity," she said. "You know, she has a history of going on Sunday shows and lying," Pompeo told Fox News's...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Wednesday the new security law China has imposed on Hong Kong was an affront to all nations and Washington would continue to implement President Donald Trump's directive to end the territory's special status. Pompeo told a news briefing the United States was deeply concerned about the safety of everyone in Hong Kong and said Article 38 of the law passed on Tuesday purported to apply to offenses committed outside Hong Kong and likely included Americans. "This is outrageous and an affront to all nations," he said.

    More and more countries and telecom companies “are waking up to the danger of the Chinese Communist Party’s surveillance state” and allowing only trusted vendors in their 5G networks, excluding Huawei from deals with their telecommunications operators due to the Chinese company’s ties with the Chinese military, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement.Companies like Huawei are required by China’s security law “to share any information that they have and that includes the private information, whether that’s health care information or other personal information of a citizen from the Czech Republic or a citizen of Germany or...

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday criticized the U.N. Human Rights Council, after the controversial organization passed a resolution criticizing the state of policing and race in the U.S. -- even as it is accused of ignoring egregious human rights violations from those on the council itself. “The United Nations Human Rights Council, now comprised of Venezuela and recently, Cuba and China, has long been and remains a haven for dictators and democracies that indulge them,” Pompeo said in a statement. “It is a grave disappointment to those genuinely seeking to advance human dignity. Even so, the Council’s decision...

    The US on Friday criticised the Chinese Army for "escalating" the border tension with India and described the ruling Chinese Communist Party as a "rogue actor." Launching a scathing attack on the Chinese government, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the Chinese Communist Party wants to undo all the progress the free world has made through institutions like NATO and adopt a new set of rules and norms that accommodate Beijing. "The PLA (People's Liberation Army) has escalated border tensions with India, the world's most populous democracy. It's militarising the South China Sea and illegally claiming more territory there,...

    A leading Democratic lawmaker asked the CIA for answers on an undisclosed advisory board Secretary of State Mike Pompeo organized during his time as head of the spy agency. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the head of the oversight panel's national security subcommittee, expressed concern that the activities of the board may have been inappropriate and that its members were more likely to be wealthy, influential individuals. "To date, the CIA has refused to identify the individuals selected by Mr. Pompeo to serve on the External Advisory Board during his tenure, as well as the role of his wife, Susan Pompeo, a...

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo responded to China's accusation that the United States has “double standards” when it comes to protests, noting that the communist nation doesn't allow free speech and it imprisons religious minorities, unlike the U.S. A spokesperson for China's communist government denounced the U.S. for supporting Hong Kong protesters and then said the U.S. has a double standard because some police officers have used force against protesters and journalists in the wake of George Floyd’s death. Pompeo countered the argument by emphasizing that the contrast between the two countries couldn’t be “more clear.” In a press conference...

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has defended the firing earlier this month of State Department Inspector General Steve Linick, telling "The Ingraham Angle" in an exclusive interview Thursday that "I regret that I didn't recommend to the president earlier that he be terminated. "He was acting in a way that was deeply inconsistent with what the State Department was trying to do," Pompeo told host Laura Ingraham. "His office was leaking information, we tried to get him to be part of a team that was going to help protect his own officers from COVID-19. He refused to be an active...

    A government watchdog found "no evidence" that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo violated a federal law governing political activities with trips he took to Kansas last year. The disclosure was made on Thursday by Pompeo when he sent a letter to Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, that included a copy of the Office of Special Counsel's (OSC) report, and then also sent a copy of the letters to a group of reporters. "OSC has no evidence to conclude that you violated the Hatch Act. Therefore, we are closing this matter without further action,"...

    WASHINGTON -- Secretary of State of Mike Pompeo notified Congress on Wednesday that the Trump administration no longer regards Hong Kong as autonomous from mainland China. The notice sets the stage for the U.S. to withdraw preferential trade and financial status that the former British colony has enjoyed since it reverted to Chinese rule in 1997. “Hong Kong does not continue to warrant treatment under United States laws in the same manner as U.S. laws were applied to Hong Kong before July 1997," Pompeo said in a statement. Pompeo’s decision was not accompanied by a revocation of any specific privileges...

    On Friday, it was reported that State Department Inspector General Steve Linick had been fired. Immediately, the left pounced calling it “an unlawful act of retaliation.” The story was that Linick was conducting an investigation into Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for asking subordinates to run personal errands for him and his wife. Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) said, “I have learned that the Office of the Inspector General had opened an investigation into Secretary Pompeo. Mr. Linick’s firing amid such a probe strongly suggests that this is an unlawful act of retaliation.” House Democrats may want to hold their fire...
