With the huge global threats facing the U.S. that the incoming CIA Director will have to tackle, newly elected California Democrat Sen. Kamala Harris decided to ask Rep. Mike Pompeo about…gay marriage and climate change during his confirmation hearing.
Harris stated: “Your voting record and stated position on gay marriage and the importance of having a traditional family structure for raising children is pretty clear.”
Oh no, we can’t encourage people to raise their children in a “traditional family structure.” That would mean people actually put the health and well being of children and family first and we can’t have that. As Hillary Clinton famously noted, it takes a village, and that means the government needs to get their claws into your children so they can indoctrinate them. That’s much harder to do with a stable, intact, traditional family.
“Can you commit to me that your personal views on this issue will remain your personal views and will not impact internal policies that you put in place at the CIA?” Harris asked.
“You have my full commitment to that,” Pompeo said. He explained that he has done so in the past as a business owner who separated his personal beliefs from his role as an employer.
Wouldn’t it be nice if leftists would go after radical Islamic terrorism with even half the intensity and urgency that they put toward attacking traditional, Judeo-Christian values?
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Harris then quoted a statement from current CIA Director John Brennan in which he argues that climate change has contributed to political instability around the world.
“Do you have any reason to doubt the assessment of these CIA analysts?” Harris asked.
“I haven’t had a chance to read those materials with respect to climate change,” Pompeo said. He then assured her that if the CIA under his leadership found climate change to contribute to political strife around the globe, he would report that information back to the Senate.
Continuing on the topic of climate change, Harris asked Pompeo for his own personal beliefs on the issue.
Pompeo deferred on restating his position as a member of Congress, instead saying, “As the director of CIA, I would prefer today to not get into the details of climate debate and science.”
He also promised to have a follow-up conversation with Harris to further discuss his views on climate science after he gives them more thought and discussion.
Wait, I thought that Pompeo was supposed to separate his personal beliefs from his work? Nope, that’s not what the leftists want, they want to force people to accept leftist orthodoxy.
