#MikePompeo @SenatorMenendez This committee considers your nomination after nearly a year-and-a-half of reckoning with Trumps erratic approach to foreign policy that has left our allies confused and our adversaries emboldened. It's an approach driven by impulse and not strategy.
#MikePompeo @SenatorMenendez Trump's America First policies have left us alone in the midst of unprecedented challenges. challenges from an aggressive Russia who seeks to undermine the international order we helped create after World War II. @POTUS
#MikePompeo @SenatorMenendez the ongoing threat of terrorism in the Middle East, an emboldend China in the South China Sea militarily and economically right here in the Western Hemisphere.
And you can honestly right here in the Western Hemisphere.

Assad the butcher who has used chemical weapons against innocent civilians. Maduro tighten his grip on his regime, starving Venezuelans in one of the most oil-rich countries in the world.
Meanwhile @POTUS has abandoned the very democratic values and ideals that have shaped America's role as a beacon to our friends and as a bulwark against a world in crisis.
We have an emaciated State Department under this Administration.
This committee expects the Secretary of State to Champion it's department and its mission. We expect you to advocate for robust diplomacy, the first line of defense against sending our sons and daughters into war. And to do that we need a strong diplomatic corp
#MikePompeo @SenatorMenendez at the CIA you had covert ops and to provide intelligence to politicians and the president. As Secretary of State you will not be provided intelligence for other people to use, you will be the person executing the foreign policy of the USA.
#MikePompeo @SenatorMenendez
Will you enable president Trump's worst instincts? Will you advocate for long-term strategies to protect us National Security and interests, or will you be lurching from crisis to crisis as we've seen under this current Administration?
#MikePompeo @SenatorMenendez will you advocate for robust diplomacy or will you take America into unnecessary and costly wars? Will you stand up to Trump and say "No you are wrong in that view Mr. President", or will you be a Yes Man?
#MikePompeo @SenatorMenendez
Americans are scared that this President the Commander in chaos will lead them into war. This is not a time for taunts and tweets. The intelligence community and our military leaders have repeatedly stated to US abd allies security, yet
#MikePompeo @SenatorMenendez
President Trump can't even bring himself to acknowledge the Russian threat. He says a court granted search warrant is an attack on our country but cannot call out Russian cyber attacks on our democracy.
North Korea poses a nuclear threat to our citizens and our allies. The American people are deeply worried by our erratic president who uses school boy taunts when talking about nuclear war. A meeting is not a strategy.
will you enable the voices around the president seeking to go to war or Will you press for an empowered diplomatic path, to protect the safety of all Americans. What is your actual plan to stop North Korea from getting a nuclear weapon? Turning to Iran,
I voted against the Iraq Iran nuclear deal but I do also share the assessment of your counterparts that it does not serve the United States national security interest to withdraw unilaterally, absent a plan as to what will replace it and how to get our allies to join us.
Once again this President is hurtling toward a crisis. He is creating unnecessary risks with the very allies we need to confront Iran. What's your plan? Will you be the voice of reason or will you support the president's worst instincts?
If confirmed you will no longer be operating in the shadows you will be the face and voice of the United States. The representative of not just a bombastic president but of the American people.
Will you champion our values when the president embraces dictators that quash the Free Press or suggest doing away with elections will you stay silent? When the president or those closest to him balk of the very idea of diplomacy and instead advocate unnecessary wars that will
cost the blood of our children and the treasure of our coffers will you go along with him or will you champion diplomacy and offer actual plans? will you stand up to pr or is our nation's top Diplomat will you champion diplomacy and offer actual plans?
Will you stand up to President Trump and advise him differently when he's wrong or will you be a Yes Man? "

African nations that have borrowed from China, soon will be indebted to only them. Some countries have borrowed over 80% of their GDP. China has become the bag man of Africa.

In recent years, China's trade with the continent has reached more than $55 billion and continues to grow, with predictions that it will double by 2020, if not before.

China is now Africa's third-largest trading partner. But as its profile has grown on the continent, so have

‼️Thread - Zero Tolerance Epic Fail‼️

According to an unpublished report by DHS IG report is the government’s first attempt to autopsy the chaos produced between May 5 and June 20, when President Trump abruptly halted the separations under mounting pressure.

The DHS Office
of Inspector General’s review found at least 860 migrant children were left in Border Patrol holding cells longer than the 72-hour limit mandated by U.S. courts, with one minor confined for 12 days and another for 25.

Many of those children were put in chain-link holding pens
The facilities were designed as short-term way stations, lacking beds and showers, while the children awaited transfer to shelters run by HHS.

Here comes the lies.

Kav’s turn. He was very obsessed with the placement of his name card. Very nervous, no smile. Good.

Oooooh he’s pissed 🤣🤣🤣🤣 as if he was the one who was attacked. His wife looks sad and worried. She’s dressed in black. He’s in the verge of yelling.
He is showing the Dr. Hyde @lawrence mentioned right now, bad move. No more choir boy. He’s scaring me, I no longer have any doubt that he’s guilty.

He’s got a different opening than published yesterday. Extremely defensive. His wife is holding back tears. He looks on the
verge of tears. He’s outraged. He won’t quit.

He should, he’s a disgrace.

This anger does not serve him well. It is a typical rich kid, elitist attitude that we hate. Bad move.

He’s crying. Dr. Ford did not.

Grassley is a liar. The two other lawyers have said that the Rep have not interest in talking to them.

What a difference between Feinstein and Grassley. Feinstein introduced Ford, Grassley did not. Mysoginistic pig

I’m sure glad the gop is not questioning, it would be ugly. Hatch is just glaring at her as are his aids behind him.

Both of her lawyers are flanking her, her husband is behind her, he pushed her chair in, rubbed her shoulder. I’m so glad she has the support.

Here she goes
Dr. Ford is reading her opening statement. She is so nervous and has asked for coffee.

Questioning begins with Rachel Mitchell who apologises for Dr. Ford’s terrified testimony and says that’s not right.

First question regarding when Dr. Ford reached out to WaPo.

Shell and Exxon's secret 1980s climate change warnings
Newly found documents from the 1980s show that fossil fuel companies privately predicted the global damage that would be caused by their products.

In the 1980s, oil companies like Exxon and Shell carried out internal assessments of the carbon dioxide released by fossil fuels, and forecast the planetary consequences of these emissions.

In 1982 Exxon predicted that by about 2060, CO2 levels would reach double the
preindustrial level – and that this would push the planet’s average temperatures up by about 2°C over then-current levels

In 1988, an internal report by Shell projected similar effects but also found that CO2 could double even earlier, by 2030. Privately, these companies did
