Who does McConnell work for?
- Republican Senator Mitch McConnell is leading efforts to eliminate what he is dubbing the “isolationist” wing of his own party, Republican legislators who opposed the $40 billion aid package to Ukraine that passed overwhelmingly on Thursday.
- Sen. McConnell told Joe Biden that he wanted to stifle President Donald Trump’s—who is critical of NATO—influence over the GOP by convincing allies in Eastern Europe that “Republicans still believe NATO is important” and that he wanted to “push back … against the isolationist sentiment in my own party.”
- Those “isolationists” include the 11 of 50 Republican senators who voted against the Ukraine spending bill and who argued that the U.S.—currently suffering record-high inflation and gas prices, a southern border crisis, and a nationwide baby formula shortage—should not be sending its money overseas.
- “This is not a major schism,” McConnell said of the GOP segment. “It’s a small isolationist group, somewhat encouraged by the former president. But it’s not widely held among Republicans in Congress, and I don’t think among the public in general.”
- While President Trump and his allies run on America-first policy, campaign finance records show that Sen. McConnell is funded by companies officially partnered with the globalist World Economic Forum, renowned for pushing the “Great Reset,” whose goal is to “manage issues that cut across national borders” via “global governance.”
- McConnell’s desire to squash isolationist, nationalist sentiment in his own party mirrors the WEF’s goal stated in its 2019 publication titled “The answer to nationalist fervour isn’t less globalism. It’s more,” in which the WEF member demands “figuring out how to deal with” nationalism, a term the piece equates with “isolationism.” The key to “taking back control” is to attack isolationism with the “counter-force” of “Democratic globalism.” “What we need, to counter the rise of nationalism and charismatic populists, is a genuine global democracy that operates across borders, and in which everybody can participate,” the author writes.
- McConnell’s connections to the World Economic Forum are not only ideological but financial, as he is funded by official WEF “Parters.” See the list below.
