Teachers’ Union President Claps Back When Pompeo Labels Her The ‘Most Dangerous Person In The World’

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo thought he’d pick a fight with the head of the American Federation of Teachers by calling her “the most dangerous person in the world,” but wound up being humiliated when she clapped back masterfully and put him in his place.

As part of an interview with Semafor, Pompeo remarked:

“I tell the story often—I get asked, ‘Who’s the most dangerous person in the world? Is it Chairman Kim, is it Xi Jinping?’ The most dangerous person in the world is Randi Weingarten.

“It’s not a close call. If you ask, ‘Who’s the most likely to take this republic down?’ It would be the teachers’ unions, and the filth that they’re teaching our kids, and the fact that they don’t know math and reading or writing.”

Of course, Pompeo is only attacking Weingarten because he thinks he has a chance of being the 2024 Republican presidential nomination. Anyone with any sense knows he doesn’t, but Pompeo needs his delusions to keep him from realizing that his life is over with as a result of his decision to work in the Trump administration. That one action has ruined his chances of ever being taken seriously.

But Weingarten was more than equal to the challenge of countering Pompeo’s posturing, and she shared her thoughts on Twitter for everyone to see.

Mike Pompeo Gets Roasted For His ‘Freudian Slip’ During An Appearance On Fox News

During an appearance on Fox News Thursday evening, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said something he probably wishes he could take back.

Pompeo, who served in the Trump administration, was speaking with Fox host Laura Ingraham, who asked him:

“Why does the left act as if conservatives are a bigger threat to America than the” Chinese Communist Party?

Pompeo replied:

“Because, in fact, we often are.”

Damn! Mike said the quiet part out loud. And there’s definitely a case to be made that conservatives are indeed a bigger threat to the United States and China, if only because the conservatives are holding positions of power where they routinely work against the best interests of their own country.

It’s also important to note that Ingraham didn’t ask if Pompeo thought Russia was the biggest threat to the U.S. at the current time. Failed, one-term former President Donald Trump certainly didn’t think so, and he cozied up to Russian mass murderer/war criminal Vladimir Putin every chance he got.

Twitter quickly reminded Pompeo that he’d finally said something truthful:

Mike Pompeo Gets Slapped Down On Twitter For Saying Teaching Kids About Racism Is ‘Really Dangerous’

Like dozens of other delusional Republicans, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is seriously considering seeking the 2024 GOP nomination for president, even though his chances of winning are probably about 1 percent or even lower.

But despite the longshot odds Pompeo is facing, he felt a need to weigh in on the crisis du jour for his party these days: Critical race theory.

Critical race theory has suddenly become the hot-button issue for Republicans, even though it has never been taught in any public school and is only found in some legal theory classes at university-level law schools.

Pompeo entered the fray on Twitter, posting this:

The founding of the United States was flawed. Slaves were deemed to only have 3/5ths of the value of a white man, but were still counted at that decreased rate for the purpose of the census so that Southern states would agree to ratify the Constitution. Women were not allowed to vote, either. Neither were men who didn’t own property in many states. Does that sound fair and equitable?

This country was indeed founded on racist principles, with 41 of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence being slave holders! There was no independence for slaves, and shouldn’t every student know that fact? It’s essential to understand why the actions of men and women such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks were so important and resonated with millions of Americans.

Soon after he fired off his Tweet, Pompeo got plenty of reaction on social media, where many reminded him that truth is always a good thing, especially when it shines light on the ugly past of this country:

The United States is imperfect. Every nation is. But we can take comfort in these words that express what we hope to strive for each and every day, generation to generation:

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

A more perfect union should always be our goal. And we can only reach that goal by telling the truth, no matter how horrible it might be.

Mike Pompeo Is Now Actively Conspiring With Senate Republicans To Dig Up Dirt On Joe Biden

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made it clear Tuesday that he’s nothing more than a political hack who is willing to destroy what little credibility he has in the service of the man who appointed him to his post.


Specifically, Pompeo has ordered the State Department to help a Senate committee dig up (or perhaps even fabricate) information that can be used for the sole purpose of trying to smear Democratic nominee Joe Biden in the hope of getting President Donald Trump reelected.

Politico reports that State Department Executive Secretary Lisa Kenna issued a memo on August 17 giving employees their marching orders:

“(Kenna) ordered senior State Department officials to compile additional documents for two Republican senators investigating the origins of the FBI’s Russia probe and Joe Biden’s dealings with Ukraine, according to an internal memo obtained by POLITICO.”


Kenna even spelled out exactly what she and Pompeo expect those who work at the State Department to look for:

“Any electronic or paper records responsive to this request, to include emails, documents, spreadsheets, databases, and electronic media, etc.”

Senate Democrats say the memo is further proof that Trump and Pompeo are trying to use the Department of State to help the president spread a false narrative that will enable him to win a second term in office. Recent polls show Trump trailing Biden nationally and in key battleground states:

“Democratic congressional aides who spoke to POLITICO described the State Department’s handling of the Johnson and Grassley document request as extremely unusual, with clear evidence of politicization. For one thing, the aides said, Grassley and Johnson’s document request did not set date ranges for any of the responsive documents, but State Department officials decided to cut them off at December 2017 — a limit that would ensure any potentially damaging evidence of Trump’s own actions in Ukraine were excluded.”


Trump got impeached for his threat to withhold military aid to Ukraine, and now he’s attempting to engage in another illegal act so he can slag his competitor.

The problem for Trump, however, is that the American people have seen his corruption for the past four years and are sick and tired of his strongman tactics.

Donald Trump is a criminal. He thinks he can manufacture yet another lie because he’s afraid he’ll lose the election and be indicted for his many crimes. With Trump, everything is projection, and this time he even has the secretary of state doing his dirty work for him.

Mike Pompeo Hit With Subpoena For Trying To Help Republicans Smear The Biden Family

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in very hot water, and actions he apparently took to help benefit the reelection campaign of his boss, Donald Trump, have wound up getting him subpoenaed.


Politico reports that House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-NY) issued a subpoena recently and accused the secretary of using State Department resources in an attempt to smear presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. In a statement, Engel noted:

“Secretary Pompeo has turned the State Department into an arm of the Trump campaign and he’s not even trying to disguise it. After trying to stonewall virtually every oversight effort by the Foreign Affairs Committee in the last two years, Mr. Pompeo is more than happy to help Senate Republicans advance their conspiracy theories about the Bidens. I want to see the full record of what the department has sent to the Senate and I want the American people to see it too.”

Specifically, Pompeo’s office has turned over 16,080 pages of documents to Senate Republicans that involve the former vice president, his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings.


The documents in question are part of a Senate GOP investigation being conducted by the Finance and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committees. They focus on an already debunked allegation that the Obama administration and VP Biden tried to have a Ukrainian prosecutor removed to forestall a probe of Hunter Biden and Burisma. The younger Biden served on Burisma’s board of directors, but no evidence of any wrongdoing has ever been brought forward by Republicans.


Instead, the Senate investigation of the Bidens is clearly meant to serve as a sort of payback for the impeachment of Trump, who was accused of attempting to extort Ukraine into giving him damaging information about the Bidens in exchange for military aid. And it is also meant to try and besmirch the name of Joe Biden, who is leading in virtually every poll when matched up against the incumbent president.

Once again, a member of the administration has been caught red-handed trying to help their boss cheat his way to a second term. But Congressional Democrats are pushing back and will not let Trump try and weasel his way back into office.
