Because nothing says "fighting the deep state" like putting the CIA director into the highest level cabinet position.

Pompeo is a West Pointer and a Tea Party candidate. Trump put him in charge of the CIA. He spent a year mapping out the places in the CIA that even the Director can't reach, meaning they are Deep State enclaves. He's replacing Rex the Globalist at State, and the woman who is the world expert on running secret illegal prisons and torturing people in them is now being put in charge of the CIA.

You think the Deep State isn't shitting itself now?

Tillerson was pushing for wawr with Russia, was he not? He is gone. Whether Pompeo is the right choice is to be seen, but it is a good excuse to put someone new in charge of the CIA! I don't "trust" Trump, but I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. War with Russia would have been exactly what the Globalists were aiming for.

I really hope you're right. The deep state needs JFK's dream of shattering them into a thousand pieces and scattering them to the wind to come true more than ever.

Yeah - but getting promoted by Trump is most often the final step before getting fired by Trump.

State employees with a TS clearance:
1. Can be investigated/wiretapped easier.
1a. Consent is given by maintaining your clearance and position.
2. Can be compelled to testify.
3. The lower echelons in the now cleaned State Dept. can monitor upwards.
4. Performance reviews can be given by people that Pompeo hasn't rubbed elbows with. Which will provide cause to prevent an unlawful termination suit from happening.
5. When fighting an enemy, it's best to do it on grounds that aren't friendly or familiar to them.
5a. He who chooses the battlefield, also chooses how the battle will be fought.

That looks like a very good assessment of the situation using a relational lens. Very much a Sun Tzu outlook. One question; Who can compel the Secretary testify? How do you see this as an advantage to POTUS Trump, if you do?

Maybe this is another 11D chess move but I sure don't get it. Trust only goes so far, even for Trump. The C.I.A. has made it very clear they are the enemy of the American people. Is this guy different? I mean he's the director after all.

We will look at results and we will judge them as best we can, in a way that we hope is fair. It's all we can do.

Why do you give anyone the credit of being able to play 4-11D chess? Sincere question; What makes you think that the POTUS has that ability?

It's just a meme and that's my point. Making someone from the C.I.A. secretary of state is indefensible.

Ugh, fuck. I hope he knows what he's doing... He has so far... Fucken CIA tho

EDIT: after thinking about it, I'll say this: during the campaign, he hired and fired a lot of campaign managers because the particular manager was good for what the campaign needed AT THAT TIME. For example, he knew that Manafort could help him get delegates to win the nom, but that Kellyanne Conway was the woman who could help him win the general.

I mean... This has worked for him. Let's how it plays out, Cotton.

I interpret this to mean: President Trump is signaling that he now thinks that his administration is moving into another Phase -- similar to when the campaign shifted from the "win the primary" phase to the "win the general" phase.

Trump is a Traitor, wtf is this shit?

In November 2015, Pompeo visited Israel and stated that "Prime Minister Netanyahu is a true partner of the American people" and that "Netanyahu's efforts to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons are incredibly admirable and deeply appreciated". He also stated that "In the fight against terrorism, cooperation between Israel and the United States has never been more important" and that "We must stand with our ally Israel and put a stop to terrorism. Ongoing attacks by the Palestinians serve only to distance the prospect of peace.”

During his confirmation hearing, Pompeo stated that Russia "has reasserted itself aggressively, invading and occupying Ukraine, threatening Europe, and doing nearly nothing to aid in the destruction and defeat of ISIS

In a 2017 speech addressing the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Pompeo referred to WikiLeaks as "a non-state hostile intelligence service" and described founder Julian Assange as a narcissist, fraud, and coward.

If you ask me, Assange deserves a full pardon and an invitation to the Whitehouse. His actions not only got Trump elected, but it opened the doors to some serious crimes (including treason)that were committed by HRC, the Nigger, and the majority of the left side of Congress.

Execution seems to be an appropriate next step.

Tillerson is worse. Much worse and had to go. The Istael stuff is back burner today. Russia, Russia Russia has to stop and maybe Pompeo came to Daddy on that one.

The only good policy Pompeo has is on Abortion and that doesnt have anything to do with being Secretary of State so this is a CIA takeover from the looks of it. Wikileaks calls out the CIA, the next day the CIA is now the Secretary of State.

Mike Pompeo is NOT CIA. He is has a distinguished military career and was first in his class at West Point. He is a member of the Tea Party and has Conservative blood pulsing through his veins. I believe this was the plan from the very beginning and on the heels of QAnon's 'strings cut' comment about the CIA in NK, it all makes perfect sense. Tillerson loved Obama's nuke deal and didn't lift a finger regarding worldwide human trafficking. He was a place holder to placate the GOP establishment until the next step.

Pompeo helped expose the Deep State and spent the last year appointing pro Trump agents at the CIA. Now that the CIA has been kicked out of NK, he will be driving the policy regarding not only on North Korea, but Iran. Lump in the Uranium One scandal and the complicity of the Deep State and bad actors like Obama, Mueller and Hillary, and you have one giant shit storm coming for the seditionist traitors.

I am VERY PLEASE with this move and it dovetails perfectly with Trump's sudden announcement of NK nuke talks.

TRUST THE PLAN

Funny... because Trump has been attacked by the KIKE media his entire life and yet...

you stupid cunts think TRUMP is a Kike lover... You faggots are worse than the LEFT.

Did it occur to you that Trump is out bullshitting history's biggest bullshitters and Israel will be the last stop on the MAGA trail? No, it didn't. Because you're all fucking retarded and think removing the Zionist yolk from the USA is like flipping a light switch ( or tossing some Jews in an oven ).

I'm sick of you moronic cunts.
