Mike Pompeo has always been in the middle of my list of allies within the Trump administration. He wasn’t John Kelly or Mike Pence, but he was never the most loyal and demonstrated clear Neo-Con tendencies. With that said, I didn’t expect him to run for president unless Trump decided not to go for it. I was wrong, which I should have guessed by his incredible weight loss.
In front of 1,100 people in Chicago this week, Pompeo announced he was “doing the things one would do to get ready.” Be mentioned Iowa and New Hampshire, indicating he’s not looking for state office. He’s going for the Oval Office.
According to Politico:
“We’ve got a team in Iowa, a team in New Hampshire and South Carolina. And that’s not random. We are doing the things one would do to get ready,” Pompeo told the 1,100 guests, including a few political candidates, gathered at Navy Pier for the Navy Seal Foundation Midwest Evening of Tribute.
“Unlike others, if I go down an escalator, no one will notice,” Pompeo deadpanned. It was a friendly jab at former President Donald Trump’s announcement in 2015 that he was running.
“We are trying to figure out if that is the next place for us to serve,” Pompeo continued. “If we conclude it is, we’ll go make the case to the American people of why that is. And in the end, the American people, I pray, will make a good decision about who’s going to be their next leader.”
If Trump or Ron DeSantis run, he has no chance of getting the America First vote. If Mike Pence runs, it’s hard to imagine he’d get the RINO vote. That puts him in the same league as Rick Perry or Chris Christy in 2016, just without the experience as a governor. In other words, he has no chance.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
