… from Russia Today, Moscow

Trump may be God’s chosen one to save the Jewish people from “the Iranian menace,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed in a baffling interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network.

Specifically, the interviewer asked Pompeo if Trump could be a modern day version of the biblical character Esther, a beautiful woman chosen to be married to Persian King Ahasuerus.

Presumably the comparison wasn’t invited in light of Trump’s feminine charm, but due to the fact that Esther spoiled the plans of the king’s chief advisor Haman, who wanted to kill all of the Jews living in Persia.

The interviewer states rather factually that there is a “new Haman” in the Middle East who wants to “eradicate the Jewish people,” also known as Iran, and asked if President Trump had been chosen, “just like queen Esther,” in order to “save the Jewish people from the Iranian menace?

As a Christian I certainly believe that’s possible,” Pompeo answered with a smile. The interview took place during Pompeo’s visit to Jerusalem on the day Jews mark the foiling of Haman’s plans with a holiday called Purim.

Aside from the holiday, the secretary’s comments came in light of Trump’s announcement that the US would recognize the occupied Golan Heights as part of Israel, despite a UN resolution which condemns Tel Aviv’s forceful acquisition of the territory.

I am confident that the Lord is at work here,” Pompeo added, describing the role the United States has played in preserving the “Jewish state.

Pompeo’s bizarre comment fetched a number of responses from people on Twitter that ranged between concerned and terrified. Others, perhaps, took the comparison a bit more literally than the interviewer had intended.

Pompeo is currently engaged in a Middle East tour aimed at forming a united front against Iran. Having stopped in Kuwait before heading to Israel, he will next visit Lebanon before heading back to the States.

CGTN’s Elaine Reyes spoke with Peter Bechtold for more on President Trump’s decision to recognize the Golan Heights as Israeli territory. Bechtold is the former director of Near East and North Africa studies at the Foreign Service Institute.

  1. Please pay attention. Many of the comments here show a complete lack of understanding of the Evangelical Christian mindset as please read this next link of a former Evangelical founding family member of the religious right as these folks are America’s enemies and their center is the GOP.

    https://frankschaefferblog.com/2019/03/trumps-evangelicals-are-not-friends-of-israel-no-matter-what-aipac-pretends/

    Listen to Shaeffer as he explains what up to 70 million Americans believe.

    In the end many of these hard core idiots will have to be delt with.

    One must see the world how it is before one can change it!

  2. Masonic Zionism & it’s “GODS” have jumped the shark again. American sleeple to lazy to study/research read on what Masonic Zionism is or even how Rothschild’s Trotsky’s sacked Russia & Russian Imperial Romanov family (Tsar Nicholas II, his wife Tsarina Alexandra & their five children Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia, and Alexei) who eventually were shot and bayoneted to death. The symbols & clues are everywhere but apparently people are too busy to be bothered w/ learning the truth but want to reserve the right to an opinion no matter how dis/mis informed they are.

  3. Mr. Dean,

    Please read this article to get an idea how modern American evangelical beliefs effect attitudes and voting patterns in America as they are responsible for tRump being in the Whitehouse as they are his base.

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/apr/05/religion-evangelical-christian-apocalypse-josiah-hess

    Upwards of 70 million share these warped beliefs in some form. Much the same as Saudi funded Wahhabism in Muslim community’s and evangelical’s are funded by Amway money from the DeVos family and that Scaffie clan use them also and this will bring America to fascism more than any other faction.

    Evangelicals love war and right wing extremism and vote 100% republican.

    They believe that tRump is like king Cyrus of the Bible an evil king controlled by God as this is preached in pulpits all over America. I kid you not and these deluded people vote sir!

  4. AIPAC is holding their conference starting tomorrow March 24th to 26th. How is this NOT treason? How are we allowing a foreign government to hold a conference where U.S. members of governments attend in large numbers? I am going to make it my mission to post on social media for the next few days about AIPAC’s death grip on the US in hopes of waking Americans up!

    I’ll start by posting this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PsGZz19cHk

  5. God Pompeo is such a pompous moron! Exactly you can’t make this sh_t up! Though Trump as Esther does add some comic relief to this totally insane idiocy.

  6. Rotten dipsh** ! All of this garbage goes against our Constitution and against the teachings of Jesus Christ in the New Testament . But the John Hagee Army and the duped believers in the false belief of Judeo/Christian are among the most ignorant to believe this fool Pompeo ! A separation of Church and State ? Or a separation of Synagogue and State , the racist Jew State of Israel ? Pompeo the court jester and Bibi King of the world and Trump is waiting in bed for either of them ……

  7. Humor doesn’t get much better than that. I wonder, does whomever controls religion get to appoint it’s hierarchy. Or, is it voted on by it’s followers? After all, Jared Kushner seems to be a candidate for Anti-Christ.

    • Most humor is spawned in adversity; THINK: prisons. In the 1850’s the Oxford English Dictionary began its efforts and, six-years on, had got only to the word: “Ant” with 22,000 of those early contributions coming from prisons for the criminally insane. Whom did they piss-off, I wonder?

  8. Goldman Sachs puppets every one of them.
    Israel gets 38 billion for security, still no border for US.
    And they are the victims?!
    Protocols are real just look at the World.

    • the truth hurts

      the Palestinians don’t need to Build Walls to Contain the Jews coz Israel has Already Done Exactly That ……. One Thing is For Sure At one Time or Another These been busy getting kicked out of Everywhere so NOBODY Wants this Lot so better Sacrifice Palestinians to Contain them by International Funding than having them spread anywhere else before a tribal therapy to cure Psychopathy ……

  9. The biblical folks back in those days had no foreknowledge about “4-year administrations”, so it is doubtful that Trump in office could achieve anything Messianic. Apprentice will achieve more and more international isolation for Israel, and the biblical stories cannot line up a modern hundred nations next to Iran into axis of evil for any given reason. The world knows Iran are not evil no matter how many times MSM say it on a daily basis.

    • Could that have been Mike Pompeo riding the atomic bomb down from the aircraft instead of actor Slim Pickens in the film “Dr. Strangelove”?

  10. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Pompeo quote:
    “Pompeo was born in Orange, California, the son of Dorothy (née Mercer) and Wayne Pompeo.[9][10] His father was of Italian ancestry; his paternal great-grandparents were born in Caramanico Terme, Abruzzo, and came to the United States in 1907.[11]Pompeo was active in the Boy Scouts, earning the rank of Eagle Scout. In 1982, Pompeo graduated from Los Amigos High School in Fountain Valley, California, where he played power forward on the basketball team.[12] In 1986, Pompeo graduated first in his class from the United States Military Academy at West Point, where he majored in engineering management.[13][14]
    From 1986 to 1991, Pompeo served in the U.S. Army as an Armor Branch Officer with the 2nd Squadron, 7th Cavalry in the 4th Infantry Division, reaching the rank of Captain.[2][15][16][17]
    In 1994, Pompeo received a Juris Doctor from Harvard Law School where he served as one of 78 editors of the Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy,[18][19] and on the 81-member board of editors[20] of the Harvard Law Review.[2] After graduating, he worked as a lawyer for the law firm Williams & Connolly in Washington.[21]
    Pompeo married Leslie Libert in 1986.[14] The couple later divorced. He then married Susan Pompeo. They have one son, Nicholas.[118]
    Mike and Susan Pompeo are affiliated with the Evangelical Presbyterian Church.[119][120]Pompeo serves as a local church deacon and teaches Sunday school.[118]
    In 2014, Pompeo told a church…

    • In 2014, Pompeo told a church group that Christians needed to “know that Jesus Christ as our savior is truly the only solution for our world”.[121] In 2015 in a talk at a church, Pompeo said that “politics is a never-ending struggle … until the Rapture.”[122]”
      Obviously something went haywire with Pompeo. The professors at West Point made a horrible mistake or he lost it when he became a lying lawyer at Harvard. Perhaps he got on illegal drugs as many did in his generation. If religion were the answer let’s turn all engineering design and development over to those with degrees in religion instead of engineers who learned the laws of physics and mathematics and the scientific method. Let’s see how these religious bigots like Pompeo do in designing our bridges, buildings, cars, etc. Americans are the biggest fools on planet earth and deserve their plight into oblivion. Americans need to fire Pompeo, Bolton and Trump pronto. These ignorant propagandists are very very dangerous to what is left of civilization in America and the world today. By the way Israel did 9/11/01 along with Bush, Cheney and the Four Star Generals.

    • https://ehpg.files.wordpress.com/2010/03/israel_did_911.pdf Just think of this: This so called top engineer, and lying lawyer from Harvard, fosters and promotes Israel which steals land from others, treats Palestinians like garbage and even believes religion is above the laws of physics and mathematics. He evidently supports the criminals in Israel who did 9/11/01 and destroyed the towers in NY and killed many innocent people. Whatever religion he believes is it not anything close to the religion I learned at Trinity Luthern Church at Pasadena, California when I was confirmed at age 16. Pompeo is free to believe anything, any screwball ideas he wants. But for God’s sake fire him from any position in Government because he might start WWIII along with Trump and Bolton! Americans today are very very stupid people perhaps the biggest idiots on planet earth to elect idiots like Pompeo and Trump and Bolton.

  11. Walking po’ boy sandwich over here is a church deacon out in Kansas. Helluva CIA director pedigree. Loves to give the most transparent knuckle pressing handshakes of all time. Drove his SUV caravan past Hezbollah banners to declare himself more Lebanese than Nasrallah. The only thing that would have made me laugh more is if he projectile vomited on the Wailing Wall like when HW Bush met sushi.

    My real question though is: how does this 9/11 Mafia admin. think any of their moves — even the ones that gain some traction — have any long-term sustainability? They act as though there’s a statute of limitations on all of their illegalities such that when they leave the office, no one will re-examine or re-visit them with consequence.

    • Those towers had been slated for demolition. Asbestos, never-finished floors, low-occupancy, etc. Plus, the “Honorable” mayor moved out of his recently renovated office in the financial district (THINK: “Where the Action Is” northward into midtown Manhattan a scant 30-days prior to the 9/11 scam.

  12. I listened to this interview while driving my delivery truck today and despite staring at the radio with a wtf moment, I thanked my lucky stars that I was fortunate enough to hear this nonsense first hand. Other-wise who would believe that you weren’t making this up!
