After Embedding ‘Never Trumpers’ in the White House, Mike Pompeo Eyes McConnell-Backed Senate Run in Kansas

Pompeo is being groomed to stifle ‘America First’ US Senate contender Kris Kobach in Kansas.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is traveling to Kansas this week, as he tests the waters for a possible US Senate run at the behest of the Republican Party establishment.

Pompeo is coming to Kansas alongside Ivanka Trump, the President’s daughter, on Thursday. Congressman Ron Estes is welcoming the duo to the Sunflower State to participate in a panel discussion hosted by the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board.

“As a member of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Worker and Family Support, I look forward to hosting Ivanka Trump in Wichita to further the Trump administration’s focus on growing our economy,” Estes said.

Pompeo has visited Kansas four times this year, after previously erasing his footstep in the state as soon as he bolted to Washington D.C. He is trying to rebuild his ties to Kansas after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell publicly drafted him as the establishment-backed favorite for next year’s Senate race.

“The Kansas race is still unfolding. I’ve said several times—I’m not sure the president agrees with this — that I’d love to see the secretary of state run for the Senate in Kansas,” McConnell said earlier this year, referring to the seat that will be vacated by retiring Sen. Pat Roberts in 2020.

Some Trump administration officials believe that Pompeo’s establishment-backed Senate run is already a forgone conclusion.

“The widely held assumption is that he’s preparing a run, because he wants the reputation of a tough man without having to take on all the political risks that position requires,” a senior administration official told McClatchy DC. “Pompeo has never stopped being a congressman – he’s a congressman serving as a secretary of state.”

“The fear is getting fired like the last guy and having his entire political career ended by tweet,” the official added.

The establishment hopes that Pompeo’s run will stifle the momentum that is coalescing behind Kris Kobach, who announced his run for the seat earlier this year. Kobach, an “America First” patriot who is a long-time favorite of President Donald Trump, has quickly become the bane of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and Senate Leadership Fund, the globalist special interests that bankroll the GOP.

Pompeo has also been among the main influences within the administration who have opened up the flood gates for “Never Trumpers” to infiltrate and subvert President Trump’s MAGA agenda:

Pompeo has quietly led the charge for the infiltration of the Trump administration with ‘Never Trump’ operatives gunning to sabotage the President’s ‘America First’ agenda.

Mary Kissel, who Trump once called a “major loser,” was hired by Pompeo as a senior adviser in the State Department despite opposing her boss on every single one of his policies. Pompeo also hired James Jeffrey as his envoy for the Syrian war despite the fact that he was a ‘Never Trumper’ who signed a pro-Hillary Clinton letter arguing that Trump was “a dangerous president [who] would put at risk our country’s national security and well-being” in 2016.

In Pompeo’s most egregious betrayal of Trump, he hired Elliott Abrams – the disgraced war criminal who supported the Iraq War and perjured himself by lying to Congress over the Iran/Contra scandal – as the Venezuelan envoy despite Abrams’ long-stated goal for the GOP establishment to “seize the party machinery back immediately after the Trump defeat.”

Trump complained about this phenomenon in a tweet earlier today, which referenced Pompeo and others who have welcomed potential saboteurs into the midst:

Pompeo can be seen describing Trump as an “authoritarian” similar to Obama, rallying Republican voters behind Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) during a time when the 2016 presidential campaign was still very much up for grabs:

Whether he is a malign force within the Trump administration or working on behalf of the establishment running a Senate spot in Kansas, Pompeo is a figure who should be looked upon with extreme suspicion considering his double-dealing resume.

“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate

So much for moderation and unity…

Published

on

Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.

Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.

Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.

On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.

“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”

According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”

Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.

“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”

Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
