The Hill reports that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told a group of Iranian American political activists that the U.S. government is not pursuing regime change in Iran via direct military intervention.
According to an Axios report, Pompeo met with 15 Iranian leaders last Monday at the Renaissance Dallas Hotel.
Some of the sources present at the meeting claimed that Pompeo was asked multiple times “If regime change does not occur internally what is the endgame?”
Pompeo responded that the Trump administration is “careful not to use the language of regime change” and that the Trump administration has no plans for intervening military in Iran. When asked about the option of using a coup to usher in regime change, Pompeo joked that he would not tell the attendees even if he had that information on hand, which got a few laughs in the audience.
Pompeo remained vague about the Trump administration’s plans concerning Iran. According to Axios, Pompeo said “our best interest is a non-revolutionary set of leaders leading Iran.”
The Secretary of State also told the group that “there are no guarantees” that U.S. sanctions would keep the Iranian people from being negatively affected.
This is represents a small victory for the America First Movement.
Liberty Conservative News reported on the Trump Administration’s labeling of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization.
This move caused great concern among the non-interventionist segments of the America First movement.
However, this latest announcement from Pompeo seems like a step in the right direction for the time being.
Now the Trump administration can focus 100% of its efforts on the immigrations, the issue that remains the #1 priority for GOP voters in the 2020 elections.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
