Last Friday AG Jeff Sessions held a press conference to address the ongoing leaks that are affected the Trump presidency…a press conference I expected so much from only to get little to nothing of substance. Same old, same old, was the order of the day to such a degree that I am convinced Jeff Sessions is not up to the task he is now charged with. With the demeanor of a milquetoast of sorts, what Trump needs from his AG, especially with the leaks actually increasing not decreasing, would be what amounts to a bull in a China shop…and simply…Jeff Sessions ain’t it.
“This nation must end the culture of leaks”…Sessions said, stating the obvious when the obvious did not need to be said. And saying that the DOJ might…I repeat…might…as in there’s a possibility it will not…begin reviewing the potential for media subpoenas…shows a laize-faire attitude towards a media whose actions amount to treason if what they are willfully leaking affects national security or the safety of our troops. I did, however, agree when Sessions said that the press does not have an “unlimited” role in American society. “They cannot place lives at risk with impunity. We must balance the press’ role with protecting our national security and the lives of those who serve in our intelligence community, the armed forces, and all law-abiding Americans,” were his exact words rightfully said, but following those words was no stating of how to do what his words insinuated we do.
A let down for sure yet not unexpected when a weak man is put into a position that calls for a man of fortitude and strength…not one whose strongest words to the leakers were, “Don’t do it.” The leakers must be shaking in their boots with that one…sarcastically said.
And the timing of this press conference was laughable at best for it was announced just the day before a new and most grievous of leaks hit the public venues…as in the transcripts of private telephone conversations between President Trump and the president of Mexico, and President Trump and the prime minister of Australia.
“No government can be effective when its leaders cannot discuss sensitive matters in confidence or talk freely in confidence with foreign leaders,” Sessions said, again stating the obvious while ignoring the fact that the answer to the leaking is hiding in plain site. And I cannot believe that AG Jeff Sessions has no clue as to who the leaker is…but I’ll say again what I have said since day one…I believe National Security Advisor Gen. H.R. McMaster is the very man they all seek.
Now I will lay out my case for why McMaster must go.
I first stated some reasons for believing so almost immediately upon his appointment, and wrote about it back in March in article titled, The Manipulation of Willful Ignorance…an article you can read in-full by simply clicking on said title. Briefly and to the point, Gen. H.R. McMaster is an islamic-condoner whose beliefs about islam and the enemy we currently face are directly in opposition to those of President Trump…in opposition to such a degree that he vocally supported Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s ‘very bad’ nuclear deal with Iran.
And McMaster on numerous occasions has stated that he believes islam is a religion of peace hijacked by radicals, as could be witnessed in his first words said to his new staff after he assumed the national security advisor position…words to the affect that he considered the term “radical islamic terrorism” both “unhelpful” and “counterproductive,” and that eliminating that term would be “an improvement” in how we fight the enemy.
An improvement in how we fight those out to kill us all I think not for the man who said those words believes that the term radical islamic terrorism as per his own words, “angers the Muslim world, stokes anti-American fires, and endangers U.S. troops and national security,” forgetting that words are not a weapon of war…actions taken are.
And all of McMaster’s words said fit perfectly together with Obama’s words that we must “win the hearts and minds of the enemy”…that we dare not send his brethren to kingdom come where they truly belong. And really why wouldn’t McMaster say what he says and do what he does for I believe the general is an Obama operative…as he is a holdover from the Obama administration…one of but a few generals not fired by Obama when he purged his command of generals he deemed “not loyal” to his way of fighting the enemy…or should I say not fighting the enemy.
An Obama operative ‘planted’ to do as much damage to the Trump presidency as he can do for who would dare to question the doings or decisions of a lieutenant general with an almost impeccable military record, but a general who is a known anti-Semite who hates Israel (remember, Gen. McMaster was the lone voice against President Trump visiting the Western Wall and if Trump insisted on doing so not to let Netanyahu accompany him for fear it would offend muslims not because of falsely reported security concerns), and who like Obama has no love or respect for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unlike President Trump who does and also calls him friend.
But even with this, what I want to know is who recommended and got President Trump to appoint as national security advisor a man who opposes almost all of his ‘to-do’ list…the start of which is the fact that McMaster opposes the president’s temporary muslim travel ban; that McMaster opposes getting us out of Afghanistan while wanting us further engaged in Syria; and that he wants the ‘very bad’ Iranian nuclear deal kept in place as is. And to McMaster, China is not a big issue…to Trump it rightfully is.
So the rumor mill is ripe with possibilities but seems to be zeroing in on RINO Sen. John McCain as the one who pushed for McMaster’s appointment after the firing of Gen. Flynn, and that he did so while pretending to have buried the hatchet after Trump apologized for some questionable words said about McCain’s war-time service in Viet Nam…words said during a contentious campaign season. And if these rumors are true McCain buried the hatchet all right…right in President Trump’s back.
And now on top of all this surfaces an undated and unclassified letter Gen. H.R. McMaster himself wrote and sent via U.S. snail-mail…a letter delivered the last week in April…to Obama’s former National Security Advisor Susan Rice…she of Benghazi talk show infamy and he using Obama’s oft said catch phrase “going forward” in the second line of said letter. And in this letter McMaster gave Rice permission to not only keep her top-secret security clearance, but he also afforded her both “unfettered” and “continuing” access to highly classified information as well as waiving her “need-to-know” requirement on any and all…as in everything…she viewed and/or received during her tenure under Obama.
And what makes this beyond grievous is the fact that McMaster allowed Susan Rice these privileges even after she had been exposed as the one who “unmasked” both members of President Trump’s transition team and other Americans surveilled under the Obama administration…even giving some of their names to the media and the press.
But know that under some specific circumstances as per ‘Executive Order 13526 Section 4.4 Access by Historical Researchers and Certain Former Government Personnel,’ certain senior government officials can be given what’s called “unfettered” access to classified information, with their “need to know” being waived for a set period of time. But the question is why would one of Trump’s key advisors give such privileges to someone now under Congressional investigation…especially someone who is assuredly part of the shadow government trying to take this president down. Simply, they would not unless that person was not loyal to the man he now works for, but was a man whose loyalty and allegiances still lie with the very man who runs said shadow government…as in one Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
But the bottom line concerning this letter and what amounts to McMaster overstepping his bounds…his position is an advisory one not one where he can delegate policy…means that with Susan Rice actually no longer holding a government position and with Obama who appointed her no longer president, Rice should no longer be in possession of or have any access to any paper work or computer files she had when she was working in her official government capacity…it is as simple as that. And McMaster knew this, still did what he did, and said not a word about it to President Trump.
And dare we forget that McMaster has fired many folks our president trusted and counted on. To name just a few… McMaster fired top White House intelligence aide Ezra Cohen-Watnick who played a key role in exposing Obama’s appointed personnel eavesdropping on Trump officials; he fired Rich Higgins, senior director for strategic planning after he wrote a memo about globalists and islamist collaborating together to subvert Trump’s policy agenda; and just recently McMaster fired Col. Derek Harvey, the senior director for the Middle East after ‘supposed’ complaints from Secretary of Defense James Mattis, a McMaster ally of sorts who, unfortunately while a great military tactician, takes a somewhat soft stance on islam itself while taking a somewhat questionable stance on Israel. More on this in a bit.
To add to the list of those fired by McMaster is Adam Lovinger, senior director for strategic assessments, fired after he attended a bar-mitzvah in Israel because he accused anti-Trump bureaucrats of politicizing the security clearance process; as well as Deputy National Security Adviser K.T. McFarland, who was forced out of the NSC in April. And according to word out of D.C., McMaster is still firing others…including any and all opposed to Obama’s ‘very bad’ nuclear deal…and any and all who dare to mention any of Obama’s islamic-condoning holdovers.
But what did and do most of these folks have in common… first, most were hired by Gen. Michael Flynn, the very man Trump first appointed as national security advisor and a man who dared to tell the truth about muslims and islam. And second, most of those fired were champions of Israel… with many being Jewish…and were opposed to the ‘so-called’ Palestinians so-wanted two-state solution…the solution to help her enemies nail Israel’s coffin shut.
And if all I stated was not reason enough to fire McMaster there’s the matter of both his Deputy Security Advisor Dina Habib-Powell…a close friend of Obama’s roomie and still string-puller Valerie Jarrett as well as being friends with Huma ‘Muslim Brotherhood’ Abedin…and of Kris Bauman, the man he appointed the National Security Council’s new “point man” on all things Israel.
First…Habib-Powell. This woman is a member of Vital Voices, an organization founded and co-chaired by none other than Hillary Clinton herself and its rumored to be yet another part of her “donation racket”…and she is the one person reported to work hand-in-hand with McMaster…sort of a ‘twofer’ if you will. But here’s a bit of extremely disconcerting information…in the 1990s Habib-Powell was actually caught leaking to the press “negative stories” on Ginny Thomas, the wife of Justice Clarence Thomas.
Birds of a feather it seems as what one got caught doing the other is now highly suspected of doing…and I believe did do…or even did it together.
Second…Kris Bauman. McMaster appointed Bauman, a fellow islamic-condoner, Hamas supporter/apologist and John Kerry protege…who believes that the “Israel Lobby” is a threat and that Israel should be pressured into making concessions to islamic terrorists as well as retreat to its now indefensible ’67 borders…and a man who when part of the Obama team’s last round of peace talks said, “the Obama Administration must find creative (but legal) ways to include Hamas in a solution”…to basically be his personal advisor on Israel. A man who believes that Israel is at fault for the failure of all previous peace efforts and that peace can only be achieved when the U.S. applies enough diplomatic and economic pressure on Israel, will now be advising our president via McMaster on critical Israeli-Palestinian issues.
A friend and supporter of Israel Gen. H.R. McMaster is not no matter the media’s or his supporter’s claim to the contrary as his NSC is now full of anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian, supporters.
And last for now it must be said that it was Gen. McMaster himself along with his recently appointed Senior Director of Counter-Terrorism Mustafa Javed Ali…who is CAIR’s ‘so-called’ diversity outreach coordinator…blocked anti-islamic activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali from formally presenting her paper on radical islamic terrorism at the NSC unless an official representative from CAIR could speak to refute her work. Traveling to D.C. to present her work before the Senate, McMaster was also the one who prevented Ali from meeting with President Trump, allowing her only an ‘informal’ meeting with NSC members.
But even with all I presented here know there is more that will come out about Gen. H.R. McMaster and those he surrounds himself with…after all he appears to be James Comey’s ‘deep state’ replacement…much more to add to the case for his firing (and dare I say arrest for subversion) for McMaster serves solely at the pleasure of the president, and like his buddy Comey, he can be fired for any reason or no reason at all.
“Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.” – words once said by Gen. James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis.
A bit ago I mentioned Secretary of Defense James Mattis… a man ‘eased’ into retirement by Obama…but know that one critical Middle East stance of his raises some red flags for me for Gen. Mattis, has instead of placing blame for the region’s unrest on islam’s 1,400-year-old violent history, he places the blame for regional anti-Western, anti-American, sentiments and hostilities on the “Arab street’s” perception of the “injustice of oppression” supposedly suffered by the Palestinians under the Israeli occupation. In fact, in 2013 at the Aspen Security Forum, Mattis defended…and still defends…the two-state solution saying,“I paid a military security price every day as the commander of CENTCOM because the Americans were seen as biased in support of Israel.”
Guess what we are and rightly so as Israel is the Middle East’s only democracy…a beacon of freedom amongst those out to kill us all…as well as being our staunchest ally.
And Gen. Mattis also recently stated that Israel’s control of Judea and Samaria was “unsustainable,” and that Jewish “settlements” could turn Israel into an “apartheid state.” Sounds a bit too close to words said by Obama if you ask me, but remember, General Mattis was Obama’s appointee to head CentCom.
But please don’t get me wrong as I support our military one hundred plus percent, but supporting our military does not mean I cannot disagree with some choices made for why out of our vast military pool of possible choices did President Trump give two key positions to one holdover Obama appointee and the other a man who might or might not be a true supporter of Israel. Why…obviously our president is being given cleverly manipulated information… information not to help his presidency succeed but information to help in destroying it…and to do so via his own appointees.
Also, and with all honor and due respect for their service, I feel it must be noted that maybe the time has come for our political leaders to realize that those military men and women who came of age and wore our nation’s uniform during the Viet Nam era up to the time of the First Gulf War fought a different type of war and a vastly different enemy than we are fighting today. And so when choosing military men to lead our troops into today’s wars and even when choosing those who will advise our president, maybe those people should be drawn only from those valiant and brave men and women who have lived and fought…and maybe still do… during this age of escalating islamic terrorism for they know first hand better than most the here and now tangibles of the enemy we currently face.
And in the case of Gen. Mattis, who not long ago told Congress that we are “not winning” the war in Afghanistan (see and hear the general saying those words here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8iRcRLsbFxc)…not a great morale booster for our troops currently on the ground or those being sent there…the most important question that must be asked is are we, under his command, really winning in the Middle East more so than we were before. Unfortunately, I think not for while Mosul has been won back from ISIS control that winning in the long run remains tentative at best…Syria is still in turmoil as we continue to support the wrong side as in the anything but ‘rebels’ who are tentacles of ISIS and al-Qaeda…and Iran gets closer everyday to its goal of wiping Israel off the map.
So while the good general wages an intensely focused battle against ISIS, the fact remains that there is more to the Middle East conundrum than just ISIS, including the political battle of words we fight with our NATO allies over Israel…Israel who NATO condemns while they excuse the actions of the islamists even as their countries are being invaded and overrun by said islamists. And we have our own problems right here at home in that certain policy setters and advisors, while not condoning the islamists per se, still refuse to stand strong and admit who the enemy we fight really is…as in islam itself. And Gen. James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis is one such person, for this general above all else should know that you cannot win a war against an enemy you still refuse to name.
And that leads into the question do military men make good politicians or good cabinet choices. To that, except for some well-known exceptions, I’m not so sure they do. And why…while service in the military does prepare someone to make tough decisions and show leadership especially in times of war…politics is and will always remain a game that most times does not play by the rules. And with the military demanding allegiance to a certain set of rules above all else, and with politicians rarely playing by the rules, a politician is better suited to play the dirty game called politics. But a military leader close at hand is needed for their battle, weapons, tactical, and delegating of duties expertise, but even that can turn into a game playing negative when said military leader is not really part of the…in this case… president’s team.
This is surely the case with Gen. H.R. McMaster who needs to be sent packing post-haste, but in the case of General James Mattis and even to some degree with newly appointed Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly, only time, battles won, right sides taken, and people rightfully fired will tell. But know that sometimes too much brass itself does indeed tarnish the proverbial political pot especially when that political pot is hand delivered by Barack HUSSEIN Obama… the still in operation enemy within.
