Mattis is a lot of things, but ‘interested in draining the DC swamp’ is not among them. He’s even talking like one of them now. When asked about it in an interview Pompeo set the record straight.
We’re not exactly sure what happened to ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis. But maybe his callsign ‘chaos’ was a better fit after all.
He and Bolton haven’t been holding anything back in their criticism of Trump’s policy. You’d almost think they forgot who it was We the People elected to make these decisions.

In the closing months of Trump’s (first?) term, these swamp rats are making sure they get their cheap shots in. For example, Mattis came out and said:
“In practice, America First’ has meant ‘America alone’. This has damaged the country’s ability to address problems before they reach the U.S. territory and has thus compounded the danger emergent threats pose.”
Bret Baier asked Mike Pompeo to respond to that statement. Here’s his reply.
I have a lot of respect for Jim, but he’s just dead wrong on that. America First has been at it’s heart a recognition that when America is secure at home, when America does good things for our own economy, for our own prosperity, that America will be a force for good all around the region and that indeed we can’t deliver increased security around the world when America is not secure.
I take great umbridge to that fact it’s been ‘America Alone’. I would tell you that our Japanese colleagues, our South Korean colleagues, our Australian colleagues all know our Pivot to Asia was a joke but that the United States under Trump delivered real benefits to them and whether it was the work we’ve done to build out an enormous coalition to go after the socialist Maduro to go after the Cubans, these are real coalitions, real things that work. It wasn’t America Alone, it was us doing it with our friends and allies based on shared interests and a reality that recognized central facts about what is and not pretending that things are as we would like them to be.
His answer to the following question about his concerns about what could go wrong under a Biden administration are worth listening to as well. He gets a swipe in at ‘leading from behind’ as well as some of the other failures Biden has already racked up during two terms as VP.

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
