Even a broken clock is right twice a day. So too does Fat Mike get things right once in a blue moon.

The only thing the boycott did was break the dreams of so many athletes. I wish people would stop playing politics with the Olympics. I'm not a huge fan of the CCP. I just like the athlete's better.

Gee, guess who's auditioning to replace Mike Pence if Trump decides to fleece the flock again in 2024...

Or maybe he's hoping Trump will be a guest of the State of NY at Rikers Island in 2024 for tax and insurance fraud...and he'll be at the top of the ticket....

I imagine Haley, Graham, Cruz, Hawley, and Ron Johnson may have something to say about that...

Looks like we'll get another round of fathers implicated in assassinations, spouses being called ugly, and insinuations that someone is "a sniveling coward"...

Just another rerun of The Repub Clown Show...

hooktrunk2, exactly. The boycott of the 1980 Olympics ruined the dreams of the many athletes of countries that participated in the boycott. Keep the dreams alive for all the athletes who are training to be the best at their sport.

Screw the Olympics and other sports that do nothing to promote education

Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo 

looks like the corporate elitists and their MSM tools are already pushing this guy for the 2024 election on the Rep ticket.

Take a hike with your neo- con political fantasies, Mike.

Japan's Sapporo would volunteer to host the 2022 Winter Games as a most viable backup for the boycotted Beijing. So qualified athletes and attendees don't need to worry.

While I do support and stand by top athletes whose performance peak tend to be short-lived, alternative venue is always possible and available. Japan's cities are welcome and well-prepared (the Summer Games organizing committee can shift smoothly to handle the ad hoc task) though I wouldn't bother if other countries would host it.

Remember, what the CCP is doing is totally against humanity, against the core principle of the Olympiad. It's not about cheap politics played out here. No compromise by inch or totally drop the Olympic programmes altogether.

Symbolic actions rarely have measurable real world consequences, espectially with authoritarian regimes. Its about making certain groups feel better, not about changing behavoir, because behavior doesn't typically change in response to being shamed. Look at Russia after the Sochi boycott. If you want to punish the CCP, deligitimize their government in the eyes of their citizens, support countries in Asia being harmed by Chinese bullying and hegemony, thwart their expansionist efforts in the Pacific, hamper the belt and road initiative, and curb their growing influence in Africa.

Isn't it interesting that a guy that was completely loyal to Trump, stayed on a bended knee for the entire time he was part of the administration, fawned over Trump's every word...is now a tool of the elitists and the MSM...

That's MAGA-world for you...you only get any loyalty back if you commit a felony and keep your mouth shut...just ask Flynn, Manafort, Stone, Bannon, et al...

"I'm not a huge fan of the CCP. I just like the athlete's [sic] better."

Guess Fat Make didn't get the memo outlining the new global normal: When China speaks, world leaders shut up, obey and kowtow to its commands.

You do recall all the posts you made about you being a volunteer for the 2020 Olympics, don’t you?

Then again, maybe you don’t.

lincolnman, so why isnt biden calling for a boycott then, if he is a world leader surely he should be leading from the front ...............................but oh no he isnt is he.

He is still trying to cash in on the big scheme of it all like he always has.

Who still listens to this fat frog? He helped try to overthrow the US government, engaged in traitorous behaviour, and helped destroy democracy.

While Pompeo draws a line in the sand against the genocide of Uighur muslims, the intentional spread of Covid 19 and unmitigated spying in American institutions, some on this site have loftier goals.

Like fat shaming.

So too does Fat Mike get things right once in a blue moon

and my personal favorite;

Who still listens to this fat frog?

Thats fine. I don't care either way. But can anyone familiar with the left-wing bias on JT imagine how quickly my post will disappear if I called say, Stacey Abrams a "fat frog"?

A lot of people.

He helped try to overthrow the US government,

Absolute nonsense.

engaged in traitorous behaviour, and helped destroy democracy.

What do you mean? Democracy doesn't favor one side of the political aisle. If one side tells the other side to be quiet and not allow for dissent and to hear other opposing viewpoints, that is not democracy. Democracy doesn't belong to either side, all sides get to and should be heard.

I see your focus is on shaming Mike and not boycotting China.

I had very little respect for Pompeo before, why would I care what he says now?

While Pompeo draws a line in the sand against the genocide of Uighur muslims

His boss didn't agree. Trump thought that Uighur concentration camps were "exactly the right thing to do". So none of your chest thumping sandy lines were ever drawn, and China just laughed at you.

Whenever the US mentioned human rights violations, China just tweeted, "I can't breathe" and went on with its torture and genocide. Trump was the gift that China always dreamed of.

When did he say this?

Ok, now compare that to the millions of human rights the Chinese violated in Hong Kong the Uighurs, Tibetans, their own people, take your pick....

Trump was the gift that China always dreamed of.

That's why they wanted him gone, for the first time we had a President that told the Chinese to their face, you ain't "blank." I enjoyed that daily, this new guy wouldn't even dare to attempt it, as beholden as he is to that country.

Pompeo the Pompous is still shooting off his stupid yap? After what his craphead boss tried to do 2 months ago, he has no cred, no right to say anything on these matters. He needs to shut up.
