Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo revealed his 2024 goals and his response to the Chinese Communist Party‘s personal attacks on him and threats against him and his Family in a recent interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt.
Pompeo said: I love America very much, so I’m going to work very hard for the next two years. Continue to come up with the right ideas for America and help candidates get elected in 2022 (midterm elections). And then in the months and years to come, we’ll see what Life is like in 2024.
Pompeo said: I have seen the Chinese Communist Party physically attack me, and they have sanctioned me and my family. But what the Chinese Communist Party has done has not worked for me at all. But Western government officials have hit the nail on the head of the CCP, for example: pointing out their ineffective governance of the Wuhan virus and the danger to the U.S. and the world.
Pompeo replied, “I’m going to be very focused on making sure that the conservative movement as well as continuing to advance the ideas (of governing) that I’ve been working side by side with President Trump for four years.”
In an exclusive interview with Taiwan‘s Central News Agency on the 9th, Pompeo shared why he is committed to opposing the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and proposed two actions to counter a series of bad acts by the CCP. Pompeo believes that two actions are needed to counteract this, one is to educate people around the world so that they are clear about what the CCP is doing, and the other is to use this as a basis to build a global coalition against the CCP.

Far Left Takes Control of Nevada, Democratic Staffers Resign
The rest of Nevada’s Democratic Party staff resigned after far-left candidates won seats in the state’s Democratic Party leadership on Saturday (March 6).
Judith Whitmer won the Nevada Democratic Party chairmanship on Saturday, and then the party’s executive director, Alana Mounce, sent her an email informing her that the party’s staff was resigning in protest.
The Intercept reported Monday (March 8) that the resignations included the party’s director of operations, director of research, director of communications and director of finance.
Whitmer was part of the “Nevada Democratic Progressive” faction, which is opposed to the “Progressive Unity” faction run by the Democratic Party. The incident reflects long-standing tensions between the two factions of the Democratic Party, such as establishment member Hillary Clinton, and many progressive members such as Senator Bernie Sanders. The latter is identified as a socialist in the Democratic Party.
Como refuses to resign, attorney general launches probe after 5th person alleges
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, whose number of accusers of alleged sexual harassment has risen to five, still refuses to resign, RFE/RL reports. The New York state attorney general launched an investigation into the process. Meanwhile, Republican lawmakers in the state Assembly have launched impeachment proceedings against him.
New York State Attorney General Letitia James announced in a statement March 8 that she has selected former federal prosecutor Joon Kim and labor discrimination attorney Anne Clark to investigate allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct made against Cuomo by five women since Feb. 24, according to AFP New York. The investigation is based on allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct made by five women against Cuomo since Feb. 24.
Cuomo refused to resign on March 8, saying, “I’m not going to resign because of the allegations. In this case, the Republican minority leader of the New York State Assembly announced on Monday that impeachment of Governor Cuomo would be initiated.
Such an impeachment process would require a majority vote of the 150 members of the state Assembly to succeed.
Multi-state bill bans transgender people from women’s sports
On March 8, the South Dakota Senate voted 20 to 15 to pass HB1217, which would prevent transgender people from participating in girls’ sports at public schools and public universities. More than 20 states across the U.S. have passed similar legislation.
Shortly after the bill passed, Governor Kristi Noem said she would sign the bill into law.
The bill, titled “Promoting Continued Equity in Women’s Sports,” passed the House 50-17 on Feb. 24. The bill was co-sponsored by South Dakota Republican state Rep. Rhonda Milstead and Republican state Sen. Maggie Sutton.
The bill states that “a group or movement that is designated as female, or that applies only to female participants, that is based on their biological sex.”
A similar bill was passed in Mississippi. Gov. Tate Reeves (R) tweeted, “I will sign a bill to protect young girls from being forced to compete with biological males for athletic opportunities.” “It’s crazy that we have to address this issue. It was Biden’s executive order that brought this issue to the forefront.”
