Mike Pompeo: The most dangerous person in the world today is Randi Weingarten…Head of the US Teachers Union

Shelby Talcott: More broadly, what do you view as the central issues that any Republican should be running on come 2024?

Mike Pompeo: Yeah, they’re timeless. The central ideas of America are timeless — limited government, expanded set of freedoms, protecting the capacity of people to practice their faith. The very things I spoke about tonight — making sure we don’t teach our kids crap in schools, which we are at the center of doing.

I tell the story often — I get asked “Who’s the most dangerous person in the world? Is it Chairman Kim, is it Xi Jinping?” The most dangerous person in the world is Randi Weingarten. It’s not a close call. If you ask, “Who’s the most likely to take this republic down?” It would be the teacher’s unions, and the filth that they’re teaching our kids, and the fact that they don’t know math and reading or writing. These are the things that candidates should speak to in a way that says, “Here’s the problem. Here’s a proposal for how to solve it. And if given the opportunity, these are the things I will go work on to try and deliver that outcome that fixes that problem.” Pretty straightforward stuff.

On February 12, 2008, AFT President Edward J. McElroy announced he would retire at the union’s regularly scheduled biennial convention in July. On July 14, Weingarten was elected to succeed him.[34] She is the first openly gay individual to be elected president of a national American labor union.[35] In her first year, she fought for resources to keep schools and other public institutions afloat during the ongoing fiscal crises, and started an AFT Innovation Fund to promote and disseminate innovative educational reforms by teachers and their union

Weingarten and the UFT endorsed Republican George Pataki for re-election as Governor of New York in 2002.[81] Julia Levy reported in the New York Sun on February 1, 2005, that candidates for mayor of New York were meeting with Weingarten, and “political experts” were saying that “Weingarten has become something of a kingmaker.” The UFT’s endorsement, wrote Levy, meant “votes, campaign volunteers, and information.”[82]

A lifelong Democrat, Weingarten is a member of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). She was an early and critically important supporter of Howard Dean as Chairman of the DNC.[83] She is a superdelegate who was pledged to Hillary Clinton during the 2008 presidential primary.[84] In January 2009, she was mentioned as a possible candidate in the appointment process to replace Clinton’s U.S. Senate seat.[85]

In one of the Wikileaks emails from John Podesta, chair of the Hillary Clinton campaign, Weingarten states her desire to “go after” the National Nurses United union after their endorsement of Senator Bernie Sanders for President of the United States.[86]

In 2020, Weingarten was named a candidate for Secretary of Education in the Biden Administration.[87] She was an elector for the State of New York in the 2020 United States Presidential Election.[88]

Plagiarized speech
A speech that Weingarten gave in 2011 turned out to have been plagiarized from a NY 1 series on a flawed Board of Education computer system. NY 1 responded, saying “When a journalist, politician or student uses someone else’s words without attribution in a speech or a paper, it’s called plagiarism – and it’s often enough to get a journalist fired, a politician embarrassed or a student kicked out of school”.[139][140]

WTU conflict
In 2010, the AFT and Weingarten specifically were charged with interfering in the local elections of the Washington Teachers Union (WTU). The elections had been scheduled for May but postponed because of a dispute over procedural questions. In August of that year, Weingarten imposed a deadline on WTU President George Parker to comply with an order “to hold a mid-September election for new officers and delegates, or the contest will be taken out of his hands and conducted by the national parent organization.” Parker objected that Weingarten had no authority to interfere in this manner.[141] Weingarten ultimately took over the election.[142]
