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:
It would be really great if the people within the Trump Administration, all well-meaning and good (I hope!), could stop hiring Never Trumpers, who are worse than the Do Nothing Democrats. Nothing good will ever come from them!

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.
FLASHBACK: Chris Wallace Asked Trump to Disavow White Supremacy in 2016; Trump Did Then and He Did Now
They have been pushing the same talking points for nearly half a decade.
President Donald Trump is under fire for allegedly not disavowing white supremacists, even though he did, and has done so frequently for many years.
“I totally disavow the Ku Klux Klan. I totally disavow David Duke. I’ve been doing it now for two weeks. You have to be, like, the 18th person to ask me this question,” Trump said in response to globalist Fox News propagandist Chris Wallace in March 2016.
Trump responded to Wallace in similar fashion in 2020, demanding to know specific groups to disavow before issuing a statement.
“It was very clear that question was talked about in the form of groups. Groups. I want to know which groups you’re talking about. You have to tell me which groups. Ultimately, it got to the Ku Klux Klan, which, obviously, I’m going to disavow,” he said.
Trump noted that his Tweets disavowing white supremacy and racism are not typically picked up by the fake news media, even though most of his other Tweets are.
“And, by the way, if you look at my Twitter account, almost immediately after the program, they were disavowed again. You know, it’s amazing, when I do something on Twitter, everybody picks it up. It goes all over the place. But when I did this one, nobody ever picks it up,” Trump said.
Wallace recycled the same line of questioning during the debates over four years later in order to paint President Trump as an enabler of white supremacy.
“Are you willing tonight to condemn white supremacists and militia groups?” Wallace asked Trump.
“Sure,” Trump interjected.
“And to say that they need to stand down and not add to the violence in a number of these cities?” Wallace added.
“Sure,” Trump said again.
“As we saw in Kenosha, and as we’ve seen in Portland,” Wallace butted in to say.
“Sure, I’m willing to do that,” Trump said.
The record is clear. President Trump has disavowed white supremacy and denounced white nationalists over and over again. But that doesn’t stop the deranged Left from claiming the exact opposite anyway.
“Tonight, he once again showed why a majority of Jewish voters say that Jews will be less safe if Trump is re-elected. He doesn’t just enable white supremacy, it’s his platform” https://t.co/kB3t82ZCSm

Trump is a racist who supports white supremacy and white supremacists. That’s bad enough. But the worst part is he’s standing by these people, ready to incite them to violence to help steal the election, hold onto power and save his own skin.

Reading about how worried the GOP is that Trump won’t renounce racism because it could cost them votes. How about being worried that the president of your party is an out-and-out racist lover of white supremacy? #biden2020

A little odd how the media is freaking out because Trump wouldn't condemn white supremacy. But it's something they've given him a pass on for years. Central Park 5, Obama's birth certificate, kids in cages, etc. They shrugged all of it off and moved on.

White supremacy is the new Russian collusion – a canard floated out there to get the public’s minds off of the orgy of destruction across America caused by left-wing terrorists directly enabled by the Democrat Party and their media partners.
