New Sec. of State Mike Pompeo, "A Danger To America"

Yesterday President Trump announced he has fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and will replace him with now CIA Director Mike Pompeo.

Trump says Pompeo and he are on the same page---he and Tillerson were not, on a number of important issues.

The secular Left is in panic mode.

Here's why.

And--Joy Behar publicly apologized on the air yesterday for her comments about Vice President Mike Pence's Christian faith. ABC and its "The View" program has already received tens of thousands of letters and phone calls from the millions of Christians who were also offended by her mockery.

This is more on Behar's apology.

Fox News and other news sources reported yesterday that "President Trump ceremoniously fired his embattled top diplomat Rex Tillerson as secretary of state and announced plans to replace him with current CIA Director Mike Pompeo"...a former Congressman from Kansas.

Trump told reporters yesterday that it's true he and Tillerson disagreed on several important issues including the Iran deal---the president thinks it's a terrible deal and he says, Tillerson "was OK with it."

President Trump says of Pompeo, "Tremendous energy. Tremendous intellect. We're always on the same wavelength. The relationship has always been very good. That's what I need as secretary of state."

Mike Pompeo told the press, "I am deeply grateful to President Trump for permitting me to serve as director of the Central Intelligence Agency and for this opportunity to serve as secretary of state." He said, "His leadership has made America safer and I look forward to representing him and the American people to the rest of the world to further America's prosperity."

Most all Republicans are very positive about Pompeo becoming secretary of state.

Arkansas GOP Senator Tom Cotton, himself a veteran and extremely well informed regarding world affairs, said: "Mike Pompeo is an outstanding selection as our next secretary of state."

He said, "Mike's deep understanding of world affairs, his clear-eyed view of the threats to our national security, and his relationships with world leaders make him an excellent choice to be our top diplomat."

Here's the problem with Mike.

Last year when President Trump picked Pompeo as director of the CIA, the secular Left exploded with accusations against Pompeo.

In a kind of twisted irony, many of their accusations about Pompeo's personal beliefs are true. The vast difference is whether his beliefs make him more capable or less capable to serve his country.

Last November (2017), Patheos, a widely read, self-described "Progressive, Secular, Humanist" news and commentary organization, put this headline out across the country: "Report: CIA Director Mike Pompeo Brings Christianity To Agency."

The article began with, "Theocracy Alert: Mike Pompeo rejects diversity and promotes conservative Christian dogma within the Central Intelligence Agency."

The article then included Patheos' opinions with those of other like-minded organizations and publications in declaring just how dangerous Mike Pompeo really is, and why.

Today, and in the coming days, you will see and hear an all-out attempt to destroy Mike Pompeo.

Some of the attacks will be veiled to look like something other than religious persecution, some will not. All will be.

Pompeo is a biblical evangelical Christian, like VP Pence, Betsy DeVoss, Ben Carson, Rick Perry and a long list of other officials in the Trump administration.

Here is an overview---from the horse's mouth, as they say, of the accusations made against him last November. He has not changed his personal biblical beliefs, and unfortunately the secular humanists out to destroy him have probably not changed their lack of belief.

Foreign Policy Report

"The concerns are not that Pompeo is religious but that his religious convictions are bleeding over into the CIA."

"According to four sources familiar with the matter, Pompeo, who attends weekly Bible studies held in government buildings, referenced God and Christianity repeatedly in his first all-hands speech and in a recent trip report while traveling overseas."

Statesman Daniel Webster, honored as the most effective senator to even serve America in our Senate, said, "Finally let us not forget the religious character of our origin. Our fathers were brought here by their high veneration for the Christian religion. They journeyed by its light and labored in its hope. They sought to incorporate its principles with the elements of their society, and diffuse its influence through all their institutions, civil, political, or literary."

Truth alert to the uninformed Left: Webster and everyone else rejected a "theocracy." A Revolutionary War was fought to break the chains of a religious "theocracy" imposed by a self-absorbed king. Early Americans sought religious freedom and liberty.

Evangelicals today do not want a "theocracy," nor do we want its reverse---where a progress, secular, humanist Left tries to destroy those who live out their biblical faith in the public market---including in a government that has been charged with protecting our religious freedom. Not granting it.

Patheos says, "For the record, CIA Director Mike Pompeo is a dangerous Christian extremist" because he is a sharp critic of Islam.

They say, "Speaking at a church group in Wichita, Kansas, in 2014, Pompeo claimed that Christianity was the 'only solution' to combat terrorism..." And they say he "told churchgoers, 'This threat to America is from people who deeply believe that Islam is the way and the light and the only answer'."

Pompeo is accused of suggesting that Islam wants to wipe Christians off the face of the earth.

Cosmopolitan Magazine

"Pompeo went on to suggest that failing to condemn the terrorist attacks made Muslim leaders 'potentially complicit' in those attacks."

The New York Times

"Mike Pompeo, now confirmed as CIA director, sees America as a combatant in a religious war with Islam---a view shared by Mr. Trump's appointee as national security adviser, the retired general Michael Flynn. 'We will defend our Christian values and American exceptionalism with all our heart,' Mr. Pompeo said at a 2015 'God and Country' rally in Kansas."

"The battle for those values, he said, is a 'never ending struggle---never ending that is, until the rapture'."


"Bottom line. CIA Director Mike Pompeo is a dangerous Christian extremist."

Substitute the title "Secretary of State" for the title "CIA Director" and you've got the news in the coming days.

Pompeo is highly qualified to be Secretary of State, and from what I've read, Mike Pompeo is guilty of most of these charges.

It has been verified that he has also said, "Jesus Christ our Savior is truly the only solution for our world."

May God be with him.
