McMaster Reportedly Purging Pro-Trump Staffers While Protecting Obama Holdovers

Reports are surfacing that National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster has been busy purging nationalist and those who support Trump’s “America First” agenda from the president’s administration, as well as anyone who has anything negative to say about globalism, in attempt to isolate the president from advisors who support his pro-America policies.
A National Security Council staffer was forced out by McMaster recently after publishing a memo stating that. “President Trump is under sustained attack from subversive forces both within and outside the government who are deploying Maoist tactics to defeat President Trump’s nationalist agenda.”
The memo also included a series of recommendations, stating that the problem constitutes a national-security priority.
“Globalists and Islamists recognize that for their visions to succeed, America, both as an ideal and as a national and political identity, must be destroyed,” the memo warns. It argues that this has led “Islamists [will] ally with cultural Marxists,” but that in the long run, “Islamists will co-opt the movement in its entirety.”
The memo further outlines how “hostile forces” are in the process of forming a “counter-state” for the purpose of opposing President Trump, ultimately ousting him from office and neutralizing his “America First” agenda.
“In Maoist insurgencies, the formation of a counter-state is essential to seizing state power,” the memo reads. “Functioning as a hostile complete state acting within an existing state, it has an alternate infrastructure. Political warfare operates as one of the activities of the ‘counter-state.’” I was able to review large portions of the memo, and to secure extracts for publication.
“Because the left is aligned with Islamist organizations at local, national and international levels, recognition should be given to the fact that they seamlessly interoperate through coordinated synchronized interactive narratives … These attacks narratives are pervasive, full spectrum and institutionalized at all levels. They operate in social media, television, the 24-hour news cycle in all media and are entrenched at the upper levels of the bureaucracies.”
Today, Brietbart News reported on Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick, who wrote that National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster is purging pro-Israel staff from the National Security Council (NSC), turning the administration against President Donald Trump’s policies.
In a Facebook post, Glick described how McMaster was “deeply hostile” to both Israel and Trump’s pro-America agenda.
According to senior officials aware of his behavior, he constantly refers to Israel as the occupying power and insists falsely and constantly that a country named Palestine existed where Israel is located until 1948 when it was destroyed by the Jews.
Many of you will remember that a few days before Trump’s visit to Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his advisers were blindsided when the Americans suddenly told them that no Israeli official was allowed to accompany Trump to the Western Wall.
What hasn’t been reported is that it was McMaster who pressured Trump to agree not to let Netanyahu accompany him to the Western Wall. At the time, I and other reporters were led to believe that this was the decision of rogue anti-Israel officers at the US consulate in Jerusalem. But it wasn’t. It was McMaster.
And even that, it works out wasn’t sufficient for McMaster. He pressured Trump to cancel his visit to the Wall and only visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial — ala the Islamists who insist that the only reason Israel exists is European guilt over the Holocaust.
[McMaster] fires all of Trump’s loyalists and replaces them with Trump’s opponents, like Kris Bauman, an Israel hater and Hamas supporter who McMaster hired to work on the Israel-Palestinian desk. He allows anti-Israel, pro-Muslim Brotherhood, pro-Iran Obama people like Robert Malley to walk around the NSC and tell people what to do and think. He has left Ben (reporters know nothing about foreign policy and I lied to sell them the Iran deal) Rhodes’ and Valerie Jarrett’s people in place.
The Washington Free Beacon is reporting that McMaster is on a “warpath”, purging key Trump allies from the White House while denying that there are any “Obama holdovers” left in the president’s administration.
The Trump staffers fired by McMaster had repeatedly clashed with career government staffers and holdovers from the Obama administration on issues as diverse as military strategies for Syria and Afghanistan, whether to tear up Obama’s landmark Iran deal, the controversial détente with Cuba, the U.S. role in confronting Islamic radicalism, and the Paris Climate Accord, according to these sources.
More purges are said to be on the way, according to multiple insiders who described a list of at least four other senior NSC officials McMaster intends to target. Other sources confirmed the likelihood of more purges, but disputed some details on that list.
“McMaster basically has this list and over the next two weeks he’s going to phase out” more senior officials loyal to Trump, said one administration insider intimately familiar with the upheaval occurring at the White House National Security Council. “They’re taking out people who were chosen to best implement the president’s policy that he articulated during the campaign.”
From these reports it would appear that McMaster is dedicated to firing anyone who is “anti-globalist” or pro-nationalist in Trump’s administration. The question is, if McMaster is so clearly against the “America First” agenda that Trump has promised to his supporters, then why is he still holding onto his position in the president’s administration?
Is President Trump even being made aware of McMaster’s actions and his efforts to undermine his mission? From recent reports, Trump is being isolated from anyone who would warn him of these efforts and surrounded by advisors who ensure the president that everything is alright.
Perhaps McMaster’s survival in his position is based on the mainstream media reports of chaos in the White House and Trump’s efforts to maintain an image of cohesiveness and unity, not wanting to fire another top official so soon after ousting Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. On the other hand, the president may be so isolated from advisors who are willing to tell him the truth about betrayals within his administration that he is completely unaware of McMaster’s efforts, or has been deceived as to why certain staffers are being fired.
Alex Jones, host of Inforwars, stated on his show today that his sources have told him Trump is being “isolated inside of the White House, ahead of his removal from office”. He followed by pointing out a recent news headline “Kelly cracks down on backchannels to Trump”, referring to Trump’s new Chief of Staff John Kelly prohibiting access to the president and forcing more of his advisors to channel their information through him.
While many of these reports sound like a plot from a Tom Clancy novel, it’s certainly no secret that the entire mainstream media, Democrat Party and even many establishment Republicans would love to see last year’s election undone. For if a political outsider like Trump succeeds in bringing prosperity, jobs and security to America what would that mean for the career politicians and establishment?
The anti-Trump forces don’t just want to oust Trump from office, however, they want to send a message to any upstarts with dreams of an “America First” agenda actually benefiting the average citizen. They want to show those voters who dared go against the establishment that any future efforts to elect a revolutionary will be crushed, and their only choice to accept the current path towards globalism.
Whether the establishment will prove successful in their efforts has yet to be seen, but I have no doubt they are working on a daily basis against Trump’s agenda and all those who support him. President Trump must realize this, at least to an extent by now, and must first deal with those seeking to undermine his agenda before America can ever be made great again.
