Millions of Americans cannot tell you who lived at Mount Vernon or who wrote the Declaration of Independence, let alone the Emancipation Proclamation. But they know that to be a Benedict Arnold is to be a traitor of the deepest dye, someone who coldly betrays not only a sacred cause, but every moral scruple along the way.
Arthur HermanTrump loyalists are losing their jobs at the National Security Council and being replaced by those who have no allegiance whatsoever to our President’s campaign promises. Well over fifty percent of the National Security Council staff are Obama holdovers who should have been gone over six months ago.
“It’s like the Bush years never ended,” notes one National Security Council staffer who didn’t come in under McMaster. “I didn’t sign up for this s**t and the American people didn’t vote for it.” LinkThe staffer also doubts that Democrats are to blame for withholding security clearances, especially for those with ties to General Michael Flynn.
The Pentagon under Secretary Mattis has been working with Senator John McCain to deny security clearances over the fictitious Russia investigation.And, an ex-FBI agent warns that McMaster is in the enemy camp. Who Lobbied for LTG McMasterBreitbart gave us the inside information from Jerusalem Post columnist, Caroline Glick.
Finally, there is the issue of how McMaster got there in the first place. Trump interviewed McMaster at Mara Lago for a half an hour. He was under terrible pressure after firing Flynn to find someone.And who recommended McMaster? You won’t believe this.Senator John McCain. That’s right. The NSA got his job on the basis of a recommendation from the man who just saved Obamacare.Senator Tom Cotton also lobbied for McMaster having once served under him, and Defense Secretary Mattis did as well.

But the nationalists may have a competitive advantage: Trump, who already thinks McMaster is a “pain” who talks too much and has complained to aides that he wants Flynn back at the White House, is reportedly considering sending McMaster to replace Gen. John Nicholson as the top commander of American and NATO troops in Afghanistan. [Link]John Kelly Supports McMasterIt seems that H.R. McMaster is a wolf in sheep’s clothing who is sabotaging the President’s agenda.
Remember, McMaster was caught leaking internal White House politics to now former Acting FBI Head Andy McCabe.One would think that McMaster would shortly be out the door because he is not liked by Bannon or the President. However, he allegedly has an ally in Chief of Staff John Kelly.
Kelly told McMaster that he wants him to remain, and actually authorized him to “make any staffing changes he wants.”
McMaster took that as a green light to oust top intelligence aide Ezra Cohen-Watnick, a Michael Flynn hire who has a warm relationship with Jared Kushner. In the past, McMaster attempted to rid the council of Cohen-Watnick, but was overruled by President Trump, Steve Bannon, and Jared Kushner.
Now, after months of trying, he has succeeded.McMaster’s abhorrence of Bannon is quite obvious, as those who he’s fired were close to Bannon. And the fact that he hired CFR and Trilateralist, Dina Habib Powell, a close friend of Valerie Jarrett and Huma Abedin, as his Deputy NSA Advisor for Security is extremely troubling.Two separate National Security Council sources have confirmed that McMaster and Deputy NSA Dina Powell have leaked classified information at an unprecedented rate to their allies in the anti-Trump media, leading Congress to issue a report warning about its ramifications.As for Kelly, Rush Limbaugh stated that Kelly called former FBI Director Comey when he was fired to express his anger over how Trump handled it. Kelly allegedly told Comey he was even considering resigning over how Trump treated the former FBI director. [Link]And… Breitbart is reporting that McMaster is frequently volatile.Susan Rice and McMasterFormer Obama advisor, Susan Rice wanted General Flynn out, and she apparently helped make it happen.
After McMaster was selected, she tweeted to him that she hoped he could choose his staff and get rid of the Strategic Initiatives Group. The Strategic Initiatives Group is a layer of the White House National Security Council that’s led by Mr. Bannon. McMaster has stated that he believes Rice did not do anything wrong amid accusations of “unmasking” the identities of Trump associates.
He actually allowed Susan Rice to maintain her security clearance to access classified information, despite reservations Trump had about her motives. McMaster sent an official secret letter to Rice informing her that she would maintain unfettered access to classified information, according to a report from Circa’s Sara Carter.
Why should Susan Rice still have a security clearance? How is giving this known liar and power abuser access ……………………………..
