It is a tumultuous Tuesday at the White House as President Trump has fired globalist Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, moved CIA Director Mike Pompeo over to Foggy Bottom and in a move that is guaranteed to set off a cavalcade of exploding liberal heads, tabbed a woman as the nation’s top spook.
It won’t impress the vengeful feminist fanatics of the #MeToo movement nor appease the Hillary Clinton dead-enders but veteran intelligence professional Gina Haspel has shattered the glass ceiling at Langley.
The historic nature of Haspel’s ascension has been ignored by a media – especially CNN – that has become intoxicated from sniffing faded porn star Stormy Daniels’ panties but the pick blows a smoking hole in the Democrat narrative that Trump is a misogynist.
Haspel will bring a no-nonsense approach to the CIA after she ran one of the agency’s facilities where suspected terrorists were interrogated in the aftermath of 9/11 and where the practice that has become widely known as “waterboarding” took place.
That will allow Democrats and their Never Trumper allies like John McCain and his ilk to contest her appointment on grounds other than sour grapes that Trump once again exposed the left’s hypocrisy.
Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!

Per the CIA’s website, here is Haspel’s bio:
Deputy Director, Central Intelligence Agency
Gina Haspel was sworn in as the Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency on February 7, 2017. In this position, she assists the D/CIA in managing intelligence collection, analysis, covert action, counterintelligence, and liaison relationships with foreign services.
Ms. Haspel is a career intelligence officer, having joined the CIA in 1985. She has extensive overseas experience and served as Chief of Station in several of her assignments. In Washington, she has held numerous senior leadership positions, including as Deputy Director of the National Clandestine Service, Deputy Director of the National Clandestine Service for Foreign Intelligence and Covert Action, and Chief of Staff for the Director of the National Clandestine Service.
Ms. Haspel is the recipient of numerous awards including the George H. W. Bush Award for excellence in counterterrorism; the Donovan Award; the Intelligence Medal of Merit; and the Presidential Rank Award, the most prestigious award in the federal civil service.
For a woman who has served her country honorably, it didn’t take long for the winged monkeys to launch their smear campaign:

She’s into torture?
Is she bringing her waterboard to the confirmation hearing?
Our senators need to make it clear today that this is not happening. No go.

The new CIA Director: “As a clandestine officer at the [CIA] in 2002, Gina Haspel oversaw the torture of two terrorism suspects and later took part in an order to destroy videotapes documenting their brutal interrogations at a secret prison in Thailand.” https://t.co/IP9wr6HdRH

Trump has just named Gina Haspel as CIA chief. Last year, we reported that Haspel oversaw the waterboarding and other torture of Abu Zubaydah. https://t.co/7AawIRG68G

Someone should waterboard Jake Tapper and his fellow propagandists.
The attack on Haspel once again show that there is nothing that the left hates more than a strong woman who kicks ass and takes names to defend America.
