Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Twitter that he would officially join the Hudson Institute, a conservative think tank, on February 1. “I am pleased to be joining the Hudson Institute as a distinguished fellow, effective Feb. 1. I am looking forward to contributing to its mission of promoting American leadership and global engagement.” Pompeo wrote.
The Hudson Institute announced the news in a statement that unabashedly praised Pompeo as “one of the most important secretaries of state”.
The Hudson Institute is a well-known conservative research institute in the US, located in Washington, D.C. The Hill commented that the institute had become a force in Republican politics, drafting and scheming many policies that are now popular within the Republican Party. The “Axios” news network described it as “a stronghold for American conservative thinkers”.
As for why Pompeo chose to join the Hudson Institute, both The Hill and “Axios” said the institute provides a platform for Pompeo to remain involved in policy discussions before the 2024 presidential election.
It's worth mentioning that the day after Pompeo left office, he sent a brief, thought-provoking tweet on his personal Twitter account: 1,384 days.
At that time, many netizens discovered the secret behind the number: 1384 is just the number of the days since Biden's inauguration on January 20th (Pompeo's departure) until the 2024 US election (November 5), which means Pompeo is already “counting the days” before the election in four years. According to Fox News, as one of the potential Republican candidates in the 2024 election, Pompeo seems eager to create buzz and spark speculation about whether he will run.
Under Pompeo's tweet announcing his inauguration, many US netizens were “surprised”.
“How can a liar be involved with a research institute?”
“You supported a divisive administration, and I'm glad you are gone." one netizen wrote.
Over a long period, Pompeo, who was rated as the “worst secretary of state in history” by the US media, was full of lies, confounding right and wrong and turning things upside down, maliciously fomenting the anti-China issue, “stirring up flames” all over the world, creating confrontation and conflict. As a result, he left a “deep impression” on the international community. Even before leaving office, he sent out dozens of tweets vilifying China. On the edge of his leaving office, China “sent him off” with sanctions.
Former US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sunderland abruptly filed a lawsuit against Pompeo and the US government, demanding that Pompeo reimburse him for $1.8 million in unpaid legal fees incurred during his hearings in 2019 impeachment investigation.
Pompeo suddenly changed his identity into a “deadbeat”, and his spokesman then made rogue remarks that the lawsuit was absurd and the court would not believe. It was clear that he had “gone back on his words”. Since it was just a verbal commitment, he won’t reimburse. Going through Pompeo's “little ledger”, you will find scandals like seeking fame and fortune, turning back on old associates more than once.
Except for minor matters like asking employees to run private errands for him, something like abuse of power, corruption, and dereliction of duty, and the use of power for personal gain are all “stains on his life”. This time, the embezzlement of public funds is not a “minor matter”; instead, it will directly affect his political career.
Since joining the Hudson Institute, though seemingly always on the run, he accomplishes nothing. He does not have any research results other than tweeting, and he is good at denigrating and smearing China. Perhaps he can make a living at the Hudson Institute and continues his evil causes with his anti-Chinese colleges.
Pompeo has lied and poisoned too much in the last few years. This American politician, who is notorious for lying and cheating, is turning himself into the clown of the end of the century and the joke of the century with his doomsday madness and century lies.
