Posting front page pictures of a finger-pointing President Donald Trump with a “Locked and Loaded” cutline doesn’t help the POTUS and all that he is doing to Make America Great Again, but only helps spread his latest smear as “WARMONGER”.Having his back, does.On dealing with North Korea, President Trump must rely on the millions who voted for him. as there no backing for his strong and reasoned stand on North Korea from the Pentagon.
Here’s the Memo That Blew Up the NSCThe Pentagon’s top official at the end of the Obama administration, Christine Wormuth’s quote in today’s New York Times article under the “Locked and Loaded” photo says it all:“I can’t underscore enough how unappealing all the military options are,” said Christine Wormuth, the Pentagon’s top policy official at the end of the Obama administration. “This wouldn’t end well. The U.S. would win, but it would be ugly.”The story that should be walking on stilts across the Internet today should be the one headlined: ‘
Here’s the Memo That Blew Up the NSC’ because that memo backs up the suspicions of millions of Americans: “The “deep state” attacked the Trump administration because the president represents a threat to cultural Marxist memes, globalists, and bankers.” (FP, Aug. 10, 2017)Specifically, Trump is being attacked, the memo says, because he represents “an existential threat to cultural Marxist memes that dominate the prevailing cultural narrative.” Those threatened by Trump include “‘deep state’, actors, globalists, bankers, Islamists, and establishment Republicans.”
Problem is that when the truth FINALLY came up for air out of the swamp, hardly anyone is paying it much attention. The good news of the memo is that it shows that National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster’s days in the Trump administration are numbered. Not only has persistent savvy blogger Mike Cernovich got McMaster’s number, but he’s been caught up in his own trap.No White House lair can keep McMaster hidden.
McMaster may be able to run, but he can no longer hide.“The memo at the heart of the latest blowup at the National Security Council paints a dark picture of media, academics, the “deep state,” and other enemies allegedly working to subvert U.S. President Donald Trump, according to a copy of the document obtained by Foreign Policy.”
The memo circulating the White House, finally reached the president’s desk.Thanks to FP’s Jana Winter and Elias Groll it was brought out into the public realm.“The seven-page document, which eventually landed on the president’s desk, precipitated a crisis that led to the departure of several high-level NSC officials tied to former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. The author of the memo, Rich Higgins, who was in the strategic planning office at the NSC, was among those recently pushed out. (Foreign Policy)“
The full memo, dated May 2017, is titled “POTUS & Political Warfare.” It provides a sweeping, if at times conspiratorial, view of what it describes as a multi-pronged attack on the Trump White House.“The memo is part of a broader political struggle inside the White House between current National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster and alt-right operatives with a nationalist worldview who believe the Army general and his crew are subverting the president’s agenda.“
Though not called out by name, McMaster was among those described in the document as working against Trump, according to a source with firsthand knowledge of the memo and the events. Higgins, the author, is widely regarded as a Flynn loyalist who dislikes McMaster and his team.“It was about H.R. McMaster,” the source said. “
So, when he starts reading it, he knows it’s him and he fires [Higgins].” Continued below…“The story of the memo’s strange journey through the White House captures the zeitgeist of what has become the tragicomedy of the current White House: a son trying to please his father, an isolated general on a mission to find a leaker, a right-wing blogger with a window into the nation’s security apparatus, and a president whose closest confidante is a TV personality.“
The result is an even wider rift between the president and his national security advisor, marking what may be the beginning of the end of the general’s tenure, and a radical shift of power on the NSC.“
The controversy over the memo has its origins in a hunt for staffers believed to be providing information to right-wing blogger Mike Cernovich, who seemed to have uncanny insight into the inner workings of the NSC. Cernovich in the past few months has been conducting awide-ranging campaignagainst the national security advisor.“McMaster was just very, very obsessed with this, with Cernovich,” a senior administration official toldFP. “He had become this incredible specter.”“In July, the memo ………………………………………….
