The national security strategy (NSS) released on Monday stressed the importance of balancing energy security with economic development and environmental protection while rejoicing in America’s energy independence as an achievement to be proud of.

“Climate policies will continue to shape the global energy system,” the national security strategy states. “U.S. leadership is indispensable to countering an anti-growth, energy agenda that is detrimental to U.S. economic and energy security interests. Given future global energy demand, much of the developing world will require fossil fuels, as well as other forms of energy, to power their economies and lift their people out of poverty.”

During his presidential campaign, President Donald Trump mocked President Obama’s consideration of climate change as a threat to national security. In his campaign speech in Hilton Head, South Carolina, for example, Trump sought to contextualize “climate change” among the many real threats faced by the American people.

SNAKE! H.R. McMASTER GRANTED SUSAN RICE ‘UNFETTERED ACCESS TO CLASSIFIED INFORMATION’

Posted on

D.C. swamp H.R. McMaster renewed ‘Unmasking’ Queen Susan Rice her top-secret security clearance!

Sara Carter of Circa News reported National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster granted top Obama official Susan Rice top-secret security clearance, ‘giving her unfettered and continuing access to classified information and waiving her “need-to-know” requirement on anything she viewed or received during her tenure.’

Rice tweeted to McMaster last February:

Hope you will be able to choose your team, have direct reporting and daily access to POTUS, and can eliminate Strategic Initiatives

Circa News reports:

Almost one month after it was disclosed that former President Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice was unmasking members of President Trump’s team and other Americans, Trump’s own national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, sent an official letter giving her unfettered and continuing access to classified information and waiving her “need-to-know” requirement on anything she viewed or received during her tenure, Circa has confirmed.

The undated and unclassified letter from McMaster was sent in the mail to Rice’s home during the last week of April. Trump was not aware of the letter or McMaster’s decision, according to two Senior West Wing officials and an intelligence official, who spoke to Circa on condition that they not be named.

 

 

“I hereby waive the requirement that you must have a ‘need-to-know’ to access any classified information contained in items you ‘originated, reviewed, signed or received while serving,’ as National Security Adviser,” the letter said. The letter also states that the “NSC will continue to work with you to ensure the appropriate security clearance documentation remains on file to allow you access to classified information.”

Circa revealed in March that during President Obama’s tenure, top aides — including Rice, former CIA Director John Brennan and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch — routinely reviewed intelligence reports received from the National Security Agency’s incidental intercepts of Americans abroad. They were doing so by taking advantage of rules Obama relaxedstarting in 2011 to help the government better fight terrorism, espionage by foreign enemies and hacking threats, according to documents obtained by Circa.

 

 

 

PURGED! H.R. McMASTER FIRED THREE TRUMP LOYALISTS WHILE OBAMA HOLDOVERS STAY…SWAMP!

McMaster issues a statement to the press outside the West Wing at the White House in Washington, DC, May 15, 2017, denying the Washington Post report that US President Donald Trump spoke about classified information with Russian officials in the Oval Office. / AFP PHOTO / SAUL LOEB (Photo credit should read SAUL LOEB/AFP/Getty Images)

  • PURGED by swamp McMaster! Ezra Cohen-Watnick ,the senior director for intelligence on the National Security Council; Rich Higgins, another NSC official
  • McMaster also-fired Middle East director Derek Harvey, who wanted to fire Obama holdoversat the NSC since the firing of Trump’s first NSC director, Mike Flynn.

 

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster  is purging the White House with Trump loyalists while making sure Obama holdovers stay.

The White House’s National Security Council has hundreds of long-term staffers, nearly all of whom were appointed former President Barack Obama. Trump supporters say those staffers are the source of many media leaks intended to embarrass and weaken Trump.

Ezra Cohen-Watnick was the senior director for intelligence on the National Security Council and has been dismissed.

The Atlantic also reported earlier Wednesday that NSC official, Rich Higgins, a member of the Nationalist faction of the White House, was fired after penning a memo outlining the Deep State threats facing President Trump. 

He also-fired Middle East director Derek Harvey, who wanted to fire Obama holdoversat the NSC since the firing of Trump’s first NSC director, Mike Flynn.

McMaster has opposed many of Trump’s national security reforms. For example, McMaster has opposed Trump’s policy of emphasizing the ties between Islam’s violent scriptures and the Islamic terrorism or jihad.

 

Susan Rice to McMaster after Flynn was out:

“Hope you will be able to choose your team, have direct reporting and daily access to POTUS, and can eliminate Strategic Initiatives Group.”

 

Conservative Review reports:

Cohen-Watnick, 31, was originally brought on board by [Trump’s first] NSC chief Gen. Michael Flynn … McMaster has, in the past, attempted to rid the council of Cohen-Watnick, but was overruled by President Trump, Steve Bannon, and Jared Kushner.

He has been described as an “Iran hawk” who wanted to revamp counter-Iran efforts in the Middle East, and sought to reform the intelligence community to rein in the “deep state” of unaccountable bureaucrats with rogue agendas.

Cohen-Watnick is the latest Trump loyalist to be fired by Gen. McMaster, whose security council continues to be overwhelmingly staffed with Obama holdovers (almost all of whom have retained their positions).

 

SWAMP! NATL. SECURITY ADVISER H.R. McMASTER FIRED TRUMP ADVISER WHO TRIED TO FIRE OBAMA HOLDOVERS

Posted on

 

On Tuesday night Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer told Lou Dobbs that National Security adviser H.R. McMaster is holding onto Obama lackeys in the White House.

What else had he done since he joined Trump’s administration in February?

  •  McMaster ousted Trump Advisor Derek Harvey who tried to fire the Obama holdovers. Harvey was a holdover from when Michael Flynn had been the National Security Adviser and supports the president.
  • When McMaster came into the job in February, he declined requests from other White House senior staffers to purge holdovers perceived to be disloyal to the new president.
  •  H.R. McMaster’s personal aide, Eric Ciaramella,  worked closely with Susan Rice while at NSC. Some suspect Ciaramella was one of the original leakers who told the media about classified conversations Trump had with Russian diplomat Sergei Lavrov
  • Two separate National Security Council sources have confirmed that National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster and Deputy National Security Advisor Dina Powell have been leaking negative material about President Donald J. Trump to their allies in the anti-Trump media, GotNews exclusively report.
  • McMaster has clashed with Bannon over a troop increase in Afghanistan for several months.
  • Recent  news: H.R. McMaster is on verge of being fired

 

Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer: One of the things I heard today was H. R. McMaster has not fired a number of people who worked for Obama. In fact those who worked for some of the staffers, Ben Rhodes for example, well Ben Rhodes has got, his staff is still there. It’s like having a rattle snake next to your bed and thinking some how if you’re just nice enough to the snake it’s going to be nice. It’s not like that.

GEN. MICHAEL FLYNN RESIGNS AS NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR OVER RUSSIAN SANCTIONS LEAK

Posted on Updated on

( Breitbart ) National Security Advisor Michael Flynn has resigned, the White House announced in a statement late Monday.

President Donald Trump has named Retired Army Lt. Gen. Joseph Keith Kellogg, Jr. as acting national security advisor.

The move comes after Flynn was unable to shake growing calls for his resignation, following reports that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence on discussions he had with a Russian official before Trump took office.

Flynn had originally told Pence that he did not discuss the issue of sanctions with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in a series of phone calls the month before President Trump was sworn in.

Pence then told CBS in January that Flynn had never spoken about the sanctions during his calls to Russia.

However, after anonymous U.S. officials leaked a transcript of a call between Flynn and Kislyak showing that the topic was discussed, Flynn said the topic may have come up, but he had forgotten.

In his letter of resignation, Flynn said his omission was not intentional and was due to the “fast pace of events.”
