As the new secretary of state, Mike Pompeo just inherited a worldwide political firestorm

President Donald Trump announced Tuesday that current CIA Director, Mike Pompeo, will replace Rex Tillerson as secretary of state. Trump praised his newest choice for the pivotal position, tweeting that Pompeo “will do a fantastic job!”

In his role as director of the CIA, Pompeo has taken a tough stance on foreign policy, which is a good thing given the political firestorm he’s just stepped into.

“He [Mike Pompeo] is inheriting a diplomatic mess. The world is on the verge of monumental change,” said Glenn on today’s show. “[Let’s] just go around the world with Mike, to get an idea of what he has now been bequeathed.”

Watch the video clip above to hear Glenn’s recap of the world’s most tumultuous diplomatic situations and catch us up on what’s going on in:

  • North Korea
  • China
  • Iran
  • Syria
  • Turkey
  • Israel
  • Lebanon
  • Yemen
  • And of course, Russia.

A pre-Inauguration Day plea: You wield MUCH more power than you know

Glenn has spent years teaching YOU — his audience — about the power of Martin Luther King, Jr. After nearly a year of witnessing chaos and turmoil both in the streets and now at our Capitol, we're all frustrated. We're angry. And we want to fight back. But Glenn says now, more than ever, we must refuse to engage with the darkness. We must be a light in the world, instead. MLK is one of the most powerful leaders America has ever seen, and he led some of the most profound changes too. He did it all nonviolently. As we approach Inauguration Day, and as the left HOPES you engage in chaos, never forget that like MLK — you wield MUCH more power than you know.

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

Parler exec speaks out against ‘unfair’ Big Tech throttle
