April 26 – Mike Pompeo tells Allen County GOP to stand up for American values ​​| fwbusiness


Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo addressed “the challenges facing our nation” on April 26 in his address to local Republicans. Pompeo, who also served as CIA director, addressed the Allen County GOP Lincoln Day at the Grand Wayne Center in Fort Wayne.

“We were a single administration,” said Pompeo, who served under former President Donald Trump. “I was proud of this singularity. I was proud that we were ready to change the fundamental things we had been doing for so long. We were ready to put America first and if it meant breaking glass, we were more than ready to do it.

He went on to say that he felt privileged every second he was Secretary of State.

“We haven’t been successful every day,” Pompeo said. “There are absolutely things that I look back on and think, ‘Boy, I would do this a little differently.’ But know that everywhere we went, we were proud to represent the United States.

Pompeo said one of the first things he did in office was to make sure taxpayers’ money didn’t fund abortion rights.

“One of the very first things I did when I was Secretary of State was to make sure that none of the money you provide, not a single taxpayer dollar, undermines our deep commitment protect unborn children everywhere,” he said. mentioned.

He moved on to talk about the Russian invasion of Ukraine which began on February 24.

“I spent quite a bit of time with Vladimir Putin,” he said. “Vladimir Putin has not changed an inch in the past 16 months. He wanted the restoration of the Soviet Union for the entire 20 years he ruled Russia.

Pompeo said Putin’s perception of America’s strength changed when Joe Biden was elected president.

“He saw a president who authorized the closure of a pipeline in the United States and he waved his finger… Vladimir Putin, ‘Don’t do it again,'” he said.

Later in his speech, Pompeo said the Chinese Communist Party posed the greatest external threat to the United States. He said that for 40 years Republican and Democratic presidents have shunned China’s actions.

“We can now clearly see that they were deeply interested in preparing to engage in economic warfare against the United States — to make America more like them,” Pompeo said. “We cannot let this happen. We are the first administration to denounce the threat of the Chinese Communist Party in all its dimensions.

Pompeo said the Chinese Communist Party ‘stole billions of dollars in intellectual property’ the Hoosiers made in Indiana, and said they ‘destroyed thousands of jobs’ in Indiana and its State of origin, Kansas.

He also listed “the virus that they imposed on the world (COVID-19) knowing that (it came from) a place called Wuhan”.

“Many of you will recall that they were conducting what I believe to be the greatest espionage operation ever against the American people since the consulate in Houston, Texas,” Pompeo said. In July 2020, the United States ordered China to leave this consulate. “We’ve known that for some time and previous administrations refused to shut it down because they were worried about the Chinese response. But we had demonstrated that the Trump administration was ready to do what we had to do. And the Chinese response was to close a US consulate in China. Can anyone name him? Has anyone noticed he is missing?

Pompeo said the biggest threat to the United States, however, comes from within the country.

“I was always observant and as Secretary of State, as I traveled the world, every world leader wanted to meet me,” he said. “They wanted to meet me not because I was Mike. They wanted to meet me because I was the United States Secretary of State for the greatest nation in the history of civilization. It doesn’t matter if they can admit it publicly or not, they wanted to be closer to us. He listed America’s values, including its strength as a nation. “If we lose that here at home, if we lose the culture, our Jewish heritage -Christian, if we stray from it, then our Republic is really not doing well,” he said.

He went on to say that “doing things right at home” starts with what children learn in school.

“We cannot teach our children that this is a racist nation,” he said. “We cannot teach our children that there are more than two sexes. We cannot teach our children that it is okay for men to compete in women’s sports. These are things we all know to be true. Don’t let them gaslight you.

Pompeo closed his speech by saying the GOP will “claim America great.”

“We are going to do it at all levels,” he said. “Not because someone in Washington, DC, not because of a national figure. But because of you. Because once again you’ll be up at 4 a.m. to do a radio show about the conservative values ​​or because you’ll stay a little late at church to make sure someone cleans up after the chili dinner. Or you’ll go see a friend who’s in the hospital and pray right beside them. each of these things to make your community, your family, just a little bit stronger every day.

“When we succeed, when we deliver those things that we know are at the heart of the most fundamental standards, things that have made our Judeo-Christian heritage unique among people around the world, that America will lead and each of us will have the opportunity to pass on to our children and grandchildren the greatest nation that has ever existed.
