Pentagon adviser: Bolton and Pompeo got rich from Israel lobby

    New Pentagon adviser said Pompeo, senior officials made rich by ‘Israeli lobby’

    Douglas Macgregor, aide to new Def. Sec., claimed in 2019 that Bolton was ‘man on the ground’ for Israel lobby at White House, secretary of state ‘has his hands out for money’



    A newly appointed senior adviser at the Pentagon has said on at least two occasions that “Israeli lobby” money is responsible for Washington’s support for Jerusalem, and accused high level officials, including US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, of becoming “very, very rich” as a result of their support for Israel, CNN revealed Friday.

    Douglas Macgregor, a retired army colonel, was asked in September 2019 whether then-national security adviser John Bolton and Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham wanted war with Iran.

    “You have to look at the people that donate to those individuals,” Macgregor said.

    “Mr. Bolton has become very, very rich and is in the position he’s in because of his unconditional support for the Israeli lobby. He is their man on the ground in the White House,” said Macgregor.

    “The same thing is largely true for Mr. Pompeo, he has aspirations to be president,” Macgregor said. “He has his hands out for money from the Israeli lobby, the Saudis and others.”

    Macgregor was named as an adviser to acting defense chief Christopher Miller, who replaced Mark Esper when he and other top Pentagon officials were fired this week by US President Donald Trump and replaced with loyalists.

    In a 2012 interview with the Russian state outlet RT, Macgregor said the pro-Israel lobby had “enormous influence” and wanted military action to be taken against Iran.

    ------

    Is anyone shocked at all ?

    Bolton is infamous for being ultra hawkish against Iran, wanting to wage war against them. Trump said just this.
    Pompeo has also been very supportive of hawkish Israeli, recently stating the Golan Heights is Israeli land.

    Huge props to McGregor for having the courage to expose these Israel shills. McGregor sounds like a real Patriot.

    ------

    Also:
    No MSM or Fox is featuring thsi news prominently. It takes an Israeli paper to bring it to attention. If you want to see criticism of Israel, look at Israeli papers liek Haaretz. American media will never report on 10% of what Haaretz features.

    The American Jewish Committee urged Pompeo to withdraw Macgregor’s nomination for the envoy position.

    The Anti-Defamation League’s CEO, Jonathan Greenblatt, said on Twitter that some of Macgregor’s past statements were “bigoted and abhorrent.” He also critiqued Macgregor’s comments on Nazi Germany.

    The ADL, the same organization that stopped the US from recognizing the Armenian Genocide to help out Turkey , who was an ally of Israel at the time, is always labelling critics of Israel or its lobby as anti Semitic or something similar.

    It’s shocking that it has become this transparent without accusations of anti Semitism

    edit: never mind

    What is shocking is having a high ranking military or government employee actually be soo forthright. Virtually everyone is too scared to point this out, fearing they will be made a pariah .

    Every politician that speaks in front of AIPAC should he tried for treason and AIPAC must be disbanded.

    That's my two cents

    The Left spent years talking about Russiagate and how that influenced US elections yet they won’t touch the fact that Israel has our entire government by the balls with a 10 ft pole.

    AIPAC is not listed as a foreign agent....even though for all intents and purposes it is.

    To be fair no side will ever dare bring up Israel's influence. Not the Democrats, GOP, Liberal intelligensia, Conservative intelligensia, MSM , Fox, Celebs, Pundits, Sports figures.

    I did read some Alt-Right pundit mention exactly what you said, that the MSM / Democrats obsessed over Russia but turn a blind eye to Israel's pervasive influence.

    I listen to Whitney Webb, Ryan Dawson's and Brendon O'Connell's material and they are all pretty open about how much of an influence Israel has on America. Its pretty amazing to hear about the tech that Israel has access to from America, China and Russia.

    Right wingers are even more unhinged on the topic of Israel than the left is, they really have no room to talk. Both sides have sold us down the river.
