Whom Do Bolton and Pompeo Represent?
Sept. 19, 2019 (EIRNS)—Former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s first outing following his firing was a private luncheon this week at the Gatestone Institute, a neo-con hotbed which he formerly led. It is the center of the most anti-Muslim clash-of-civilizations rants in American and British foreign policy circles. Bolton was introduced by Rebekah Mercer, the hedge fund billionaire heiress who has funded all of Bolton’s recent career. Attendees at the dump-on-Trump luncheon included Alan Dershowitz, former Attorney General Mike Mukasey, Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy, New York Times attorney Floyd Abrams, former Fox personality John Stossel, former New York Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey, and New York billionaire John Catsimatidis. Dershowitz, a committed Zionist, declared that Bolton’s firing was a “national disaster” according to Politico’s report.
Gatestone, once a part of the Hudson Institute and funded by Sears Roebuck heiress Nina Rosenwald, has featured such neo-cons as James Woolsey, Elliott Abrams, William Kristol, and other direct authors of the Iraq War, along with British Thatcherite Tories, including Baroness Caroline Cox, Lord Daniel Finkelstein OBE, and theViscountess Caroline Bearsted.
Bolton attacked all of Trump’s foreign policy initiatives at the luncheon. He apparently claimed that Trump had stopped a Bolton-orchestrated attack on Iran after the June 20th shoot-down of an American drone, because of last-minute appeals by Tucker Carlson. He claimed that had that attack gone forward, Iran would not have attacked Saudi Arabia’s oil refinery. Particularly rich, was Bolton’s characterization of Trump’s invitation to the Taliban for peace negotiations at Camp David on the eve of 9/11, as an insult to the 9/11 families. Bolton, of course, was an author of the policies which led directly to the death of 3,000 Americans on that day of infamy.
Tucker Carlson has responded to the Bolton-instigated attacks on him by calling the neo-cons “leftists.” Carlson noted that Samantha Power, Barack Obama’s UN Ambassador, blasted Bolton’s firing. Carlson was alluding to the fact that the first generation of neo-conservatives were followers of Leon Trotsky—card-carrying members of the Fourth International. They changed Trotsky’s core idea of permanent revolution into the neoconservative wet dream of permanent warfare and permanent regime change—facts fully developed in Lyndon LaRouche’s Children of Satan series of pamphlets following the events of 9/11.
President Donald Trump has answered Bolton publicly and succinctly, “Well, I was critical of John getting us involved with a lot of other people in the Middle East.... We’ve spent $7.5 trillion in the Middle East and you ought to ask a lot of people about that.... A lot of people were very critical that I brought him in in the first place because of the fact that he was so in favor of going into the Middle East, and he got stuck in quicksand and we became policemen in the Middle East. It’s ridiculous.”
Bolton, Steve Bannon, Breitbart News, the data firm Cambridge Analytica, and Kellyanne Conway, were all Mercer family properties during 2016, and originally supported the British Tory choice, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). Robert Mercer made his billions on Wall Street, manipulating data for currency and other speculation, through computer modeling. Typical of his social skills, was his spending over $2.7 million on a model train set for himself. He conducts his politics through his daughter Rebekah, who is a rabid libertarian, and is a major financial angel in Republican/Tory circles in both the U.S. and Britain. He sponsored Bannon’s creation of the so-called alt-right out of enraged young males primarily addicted to gamer culture. The Mercer group, by all accounts, injected both millions of dollars in cash and structure into Trump’s general election campaign and claimed that this entitled them to a seat at the table.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Vice President Mike Pence represent another key Republican constituency within the George H.W. Bush-built Republican Party—Christian Zionists. A sect created by British intelligence, these alien forces have embedded themselves in the evangelical population in the U.S., and are strident in their support of Israel, but not for any reason which would please the Israeli population. They believe that the ultimate destruction of Israel in Armageddon will bring about the second coming of Christ. Trump was told that he needed this constituency to secure the evangelical vote in 2016, a key to Republican Party success. However, many evangelicals are more than satisfied with the President’s pro-life positions and appointments to the Supreme Court, without the added component about blowing up the world.
