Hillary to Speak at Teachers Union Convention Amid Rumors of 2020 Presidential Run

Published

on

First reported by the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary R. Clinton is slated to speak at the annual union conference in Pittsburgh this weekend.

“Thousands of educators from across the country will be joined by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren this weekend as they converge on Pittsburgh for the biennial convention of the American Federation of Teachers,” the paper wrote.
Clinton will  speak on Friday, while Sanders and Warren will speak Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
The AFT, which represents 1.7 million teachers, endorsed Clinton in 2016.
There has been a great deal of whispering about whether Clinton will run for president for the third time in 2020. Both Clintons were spotted on a commercial flight over the weekend.

The New York Post speculated:

“Hillary Clinton is up to something.

Under the message line, “horrific,” she wrote June 18: “This is a moral and humanitarian crisis. Everyone of us who has ever held a child in their arms, and every human being with a sense of compassion and decency should be outraged.” She said she warned about Trump’s immigration policies during the 2016 campaign.

Three days later, she was back again, saying that her group, Onward Together, raised $1 million and would split it among organizations working to change border policy, including the American Civil Liberties Union and a gaggle of immigrant, refugee, Latino and women’s groups.”

New York Post Passage Ends. 

The AFT convention is being held just two weeks after a huge blow to teachers unions nationwide. The Supreme Court held that public sector unions could no longer compel members to join and pay dues. The ruling is a huge blow to Democrats, as unions, which are often giant campaign contributors, will lose funding without compelled dues.
The event could be an opportunity for Clinton to pitch ideas for restoring lost power to the unions, thereby helping the Democrat party.
“We are at this solemn and scary inflection point in our country where there are really troubling trends and amazing activism at the same time,” AFT President Randi Weingarten said. “It is really surreal.”

Mike Pompeo Said to be Considering Senate Run, Secretary of State Replacement Sought

Pompeo may be vacating his position as Secretary of State.

Published

on

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo may be preparing to resign his position to run for an open U.S Senate seat in Kansas, with Trump administration figures already researching possibilities for a potential replacement.

Trump administration officials are said to be eyeing current National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien in the event of a State Department vacancy. O’Brien has clicked with Trump far more cohesively than previous foreign policy advisors, such as fish-out-of-water neocon John Bolton and career military officer H.R McMaster.

Pompeo has always been a lukewarm executor of President Trump’s America First foreign policy platform, at times aligning with the President, yet also bowing to the conventional globalist wisdom prevalent throughout the federal department. The cabinet member began his service in the administration as Director of the CIA, an unaccountable secret agency known for extralegal attempts to interfere in American politics against the Trump campaign.

It appears Pompeo is being nudged to run for the Kansas Senate seat as a spoiler by the Republican establishment with the hopes of dashing former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s campaign. Kobach is a staunch immigration patriot who currently holds a wide lead in statewide polling, but it appears Pompeo would stand a solid chance of besting him in a Republican primary.

Pompeo’s switch from Secretary of State to Senatorial candidate doesn’t come across as the most glaring promotion. It’s possible that Mitch McConnell and bigwig Republican Senators are desperate enough to block Kris Kobach’s Senate bid that they’d manage to recruit Pompeo into taking a demotion for the cause.

He’s generally dismissed questions pertaining to a potential Kansas Senate bid, but the creation of a new personal Twitter account has made some believe he’s gearing up for a political campaign.

Pompeo’s departure could open up avenues to push the State Department in an America First direction, even if it damages Kobach’s Senate prospects. Pompeo has consistently agitated for military intervention against the Syrian government and generally fought for the United States to work for Saudi Arabian interests.
