Clear-Cut Meddling? Mike Pompeo Promises US Will Try To Stop Corbyn From Being Elected


Published time: 10 Jun, 2019 15:48

It looks like that much-lauded “special relationship” between the UK and US is so special that the latter now appears to believe it should be offered a significant say in who leads the former.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has been caught admitting that Washington will do its “level best” to prevent UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn from becoming Britain’s prime minister — but what’s a bit of meddling between special friends?

In a recording leaked to the Washington Post, Pompeo told a gathering of Jewish leaders that a Corbyn premiership is a real possibility and that he could manage to “run the gauntlet and get elected” — something which the Trump administration seems to be dead set against.

Pompeo was apparently responding to claims of “anti-semitism” that have been levelled at the Labour leader. He promised that the US “won’t wait” until Corbyn is elected to “push back,” because things can get a little tricky once an election has already inconveniently taken place. “It’s too risky and too important and too hard once it’s already happened,” he said.

Needless to say, the Labour Party didn’t take too kindly to Pompeo’s intervention, calling it an “entirely unacceptable interference in the UK’s democracy.” The Conservative Party has been notably quieter on the intrusion into British politics, which is odd, since Theresa May’s Tories are usually so quick to denounce foreign interference in the domestic affairs of other nations.

1. We have a long record of messing around in the elections of other nations...

just like the Russians.

We portray ourselves as the good guys in white hats.



The reality is more like this:

2. Obama admin. sent taxpayer money to campaign to oust Netanyahu

By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Tuesday, July 12, 2016

The State Department paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers grants to an Israeli group that used the money to build a campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in (the 2015) Israeli parliamentary elections, a congressional investigation concluded Tuesday.

Some $350,000 was sent to OneVoice, ostensibly to support the group’s efforts to back Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement negotiations. But OneVoice used the money to build a voter database, train activists and hire a political consulting firm with ties to President Obama’s campaign — all of which set the stage for an anti-Netanyahu campaign, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations said in a bipartisan staff report.

In one stunning finding, the subcommittee said OneVoice even told the State Department’s top diplomat in Jerusalem of its plans in an email, but the official, Consul General Michael Ratney, claims never to have seen them.

4. Does anyone else find it ironic that...

RCW is using Russian state owned media to complain about potential US meddling in UK election to stop notorious Jew hater Jeremy Corbyn?

Nah....me neither.
