40 OBAMA HOLDOVERS OUT OF 250 OFFICIALS STILL RUN NSC: H.R. McMaster ‘has protected and coddled them’

Posted on

  • About 40 of the National Security Council’s (NSC) 250 officials — nearly one in six — are Obama administration holdovers
  • H.R. McMaster ‘has protected and coddled’ Obama holdovers

 

Daily Caller:

Several Obama holdovers who led initiatives at odds with President Donald Trump’s foreign policy remain on the staff of National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.

About 40 of the National Security Council’s (NSC) 250 officials — nearly one in six — are Obama administration holdovers, according to TheDCNF’s analysis. The holdovers include NSC directors for Korea, China, Iran, Pakistan, Egypt, Eastern Europe, Israel-Palestine, South America, North Africa and sub-Sahara Africa. Holdovers also advise on weapons of mass destruction, counterterrorism, non-proliferation, arms control, defense policy, immigration, and homeland preparedness.

It’s been common practice in previous administrations to retain holdovers from an outgoing administration, and nearly all are on loan from other federal agencies. But current and former administration officials tell TheDCNF they are concerned that so many Obama era holdovers are still working at NSC eight months into the Trump administration.

“The problem is the allegiance they have to their former administration and their position and stances on national security,” said Col. James Waurishuk (Ret.), a 30-year veteran senior intelligence official and a former NSC official. “It’s crazy when they represent pretty much 180 degrees of what Trump is trying to do.”

Some blame McMaster for the holdovers. “He has protected and coddled them,” alleged one former NSC staffer who requested anonymity.

WHITE SUPREMACIST LEADER JASON KESSLER AN OBAMA SUPPORTER, OCCUPY MOVEMENT PROTESTER

Posted on

 

Left-wing white supremacist?  ‘Unite the Right’ leader, Jason Kessler, was a supporter of Barack Obama and the Occupy movement.

The rightward shift in his views was first put on display in November, 2016 when his tirade against Charlottesville’ Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy began, who called for the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee in downtown Charlottesville on March 22, 2016.

Southern Poverty Law Center reports:

Rumors abound on white nationalist forums that Kessler’s ideological pedigree before 2016 was less than pure and seem to point to involvement in the Occupy movement and past support for President Obama.

At one recent speech in favor of Charlottesville’s status as a sanctuary city, Kessler live-streamed himself as an attendee questioned him and apologized for an undisclosed spat during Kessler’s apparent involvement with Occupy. Kessler appeared visibly perturbed by the woman’s presence and reminders of their past association.

Kessler himself has placed his “red-pilling” around December of 2013 when a PR executive was publicly excoriated for a tasteless Twitter joke about AIDS in Africa.

Regarding the incident, Kessler stated “… so it was just a little race joke, nothing that big of a deal, she didn’t have that many followers, she probably didn’t think anybody was gonna see it,”

Regardless of Kessler’s past politics, the rightward shift in his views was first put on display in November, 2016 when his tirade against Wes Bellamy began.

Bellamy, a teacher at Charlottesville’s Albemarle High School teacher and Vice Mayor, first drew Kessler’s ire after organizing a press conference to call for the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee in downtown Charlottesville on March 22, 2016. After a face-to-face encounter at a second rally protesting a UVA lecturer who referred to Black Lives Matter as a racist group, Kessler set his sights on having Bellamy removed from office.

That November, Kessler posted an expose revealing lewd and offensive tweets and retweets made by Bellamy prior to entering office. Beneath a photo captioned with a reference to the racist “Kangz” meme that white nationalists typically employ to mock the Black Egyptian hypothesis, Kessler asserted that Bellamy’s tweets were proof of “anti-white bias.”

 

 

IDENTITY POLITICS: OBAMA LEGACY AFTER EIGHT YEARS OF DIVIDING AMERICA BY RACE AND GENDER

Posted on Updated on

 

Obama, the media and the Democrat Party used the bully pulpit to promote identity politics and sadly, under President Trump the chickens have come home to roost.

This is the America Obama wanted during his eight years of non-stop race bait and identity politics. This is the left’s fantasy – dysfunctional America divided by identity politics and race.

President Trump condemned the hate and violence of white nationalists at rally in Charlottesville. Obama invited Black Lives Matter to White House. Democrat Party affiliates finance, organize violent antifa and BLM protests. If America has a destroyer, it’s the Democrat Party and they will never cease until they see this country destroyed from within.

 

From Milo Yiannopoulos:

If you insist on identity politics, you can’t act surprised when groups you don’t like demand their own pride movements and you can’t blame them for reacting to your deliberate provocations. If we are to have identity politics, we have to have them for everyone.

If you select as your primary target the architects of western civilization — straight white men — don’t be surprised if you lose the war you started.

Personally, I hate the politics of gender, orientation and skin color. But if there are any remaining white nationalist sentiments in America, it’s the Left sustaining and nourishing them.

BIG! HANNITY THREATENS ‘BIGGEST LAWSUIT’ AGAINST OBAMA ADMIN IF HE WAS SPIED ON AND UNMASKED BY NSA

Posted on Updated on

 

  • Hannity: “I am going to sanction the biggest lawsuit that I possibly can with the biggest attorneys in the country so we can do something to stop the shredding of the Constitution,”

 

Fox News Sean Hannity says he is prepared to sue the Obama administration if it is revealed he was subject to illegal NSA ‘unmasking.

 

Infowars reports:

 

Fox News host Sean Hannity has laid down a challenge that he will sue the Obama administration if it turns out he was under NSA surveillance and his name was “unmasked” either within the administration or to members of the press.

“I am going to sanction the biggest lawsuit that I possibly can with the biggest attorneys in the country so we can do something to stop the shredding of the Constitution,” Hannity said in a radio broadcast on Aug. 4, noting that he has on “pretty good authority” that he was under Obama administration NSA electronic surveillance and that the Obama administration “unmasked” his name.

On March 20, Infowars.com published records obtained from Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse that individual records of hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens were under National Security Agency (NSA) electronic surveillance in the years 2004 through 2010, in a database that suggests both Donald J. Trump and Alex Jones were under illegal, unauthorized government monitoring during those years.

Fox News reported on June 23 that Judicial Watch was unable to obtain records on Trump’s 2016 campaign team “unmasking” because all relevant NSA records have been transferred to President Obama’s yet-unopened presidential library and will not be available to the public for five years.

Disclosure of the names of U.S. citizens identified through the course of NSA electronic surveillance of foreign operatives under FISA-court authorization is a federal crime, regardless whether the “unmasking” involves disclosure within the government or to outside sources, including the press.

 

Sean Hannity was a guest on ‘Rose Unplugged‘ and gave his reaction to these allegations.

Hannity: “You know, look..I’m only reading the same things that you’re reading and I don’t have any confirmation at all, but apparently somebody is saying that there was surveillance of me and unmasking of me. Now, I have no knowledge of it, Rose. We’re friends..I always tell the straight up truth…

…And I will say this, if it ever does turn out to be true, I will be filing suit because, you know they can’t say that is incidental surveillance because that would be that there was no way…because I don’t do anything nefarious and that would mean that I would have been a target of a political….you know if political surveillance took place of me, I will sue everybody involved. I promise you.”

Rose: “Good for you!”

Hannity: “They will have to be deposed and go under oath and I will have civil action against anybody that might have been involved in that, but honestly I have no knowledge. I see what everybody else is seeing, my friends are seeing. I’ve been saying on Twitter that I have no knowledge of it…so but there have been stories all over the place about it but I really don’t know.

OBAMA’S TACTIC ON MARKETING IRAN NUKE DEAL: ‘WE TOLD EXPERTS WHAT TO SAY AND THEY BECAME KEY SOURCES FOR MEDIA TALKING POINTS’

Posted on

  • Obama’s NSA adviser Ben Rhodes: “They ( experts ) were saying things that validated WHAT WE HAD GIVEN THEM TO SAY.”
  • The “freshly minted arms-of-control experts” were utilized to create an “echo chamber” at think tanks and social media
  • The ‘experts’ became key sources for hundreds of reporters to sell Iran deal
  • Ben Rhodes:  “We had test drives to know who was going to be able to carry our message effectively, and how to use outside groups like Ploughshares, the Iran Project and whomever else. So we knew the tactics that worked.”

 

From Breitbart:

The involvement of Ploughshares in selling the Iran agreement to the public was revealed in an extensive New York Times Magazine profile of Obama’s former deputy national security adviser, Ben Rhodes, titled, “The Aspiring Novelist Who Became Obama’s Foreign-Policy Guru.” The article contains interviews with Rhodes and scores of top Obama administration officials.

Robert Malley, then a senior director at the National Security Council, expounded on the genesis and execution of the marketing plan to sell the Iran deal.

Malley explained to the Times that “experts” were utilized to create an “echo chamber” that disseminated administration claims about Iran to “hundreds of often-clueless reporters” in the news media.

Times author David Samuels wrote:

In the spring of last year, legions of arms-control experts began popping up at think tanks and on social media, and then became key sources for hundreds of often-clueless reporters. “We created an echo chamber,” he admitted, when I asked him to explain the onslaught of freshly minted experts cheerleading for the deal. “They were saying things that validated what we had given them to say.”

Rhodes told Samuels that the marketing strategy took advantage of the “absence of rational discourse” and utilized outside groups, including Ploughshares.

When I suggested that all this dark metafictional play seemed a bit removed from rational debate over America’s future role in the world, Rhodes nodded. “In the absence of rational discourse, we are going to discourse the [expletive] out of this,” he said. “We had test drives to know who was going to be able to carry our message effectively, and how to use outside groups like Ploughshares, the Iran Project and whomever else. So we knew the tactics that worked.” He is proud of the way he sold the Iran deal. “We drove them crazy,” he said of the deal’s opponents.

Ploughshares says it has awarded hundreds of grants “whose aggregate value exceeded $60 million.”

H.R. McMASTER WORKED AT GEORGE SOROS-FUNDED THINK TANK THAT HELPED SELL IRAN NUKE DEAL TO THE MEDIA

Posted on

 

  • H.R. McMaster was a member of a UK-based think tank International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS),  financed by  George Soros-funded group.
  •  IISS donor Ploughshares Fund was identified last year by the Obama White House as central in helping to market the Iran nuclear deal to the news media.
  • Ploughshares Fund is financed by Soros’ Open Society Institute and Tides Foundation
  • Ploughshares has partnered with a who’s-who of the radical left, including Code Pink, the pro-Palestinian J Street, United for Peace & Justice, the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation and Demo, a progressive economic advisory group where Obama’s controversial former green jobs czar, Van Jones, has served on the board.
  • Recent event held by Ploughshares Fund, John Kerry implied that McMaster is the best bet at keeping the nuclear agreement alive
  • McMaster is a leading proponent of the Iran nuclear accord within the Trump administration. He has reportedly urged the White House to recertify Iran’s compliance with the Iran nuclear deal.
  • McMaster fired Trump supporters who opposed Iran nuke deal.

 

From September 2006 to February 2017, McMaster is listed as a member of International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), where he served as consulting senior fellow.  The IISS describes itself as a “world-leading authority on global security, political risk and military conflict.”

The IISS has been supportive of the Obama administration-brokered 2015 nuclear accord with Iran, and the group has repeatedly hit back against charges that Tehran has violated the agreement.

McMaster himself has been accused of purging the National Security Council of hardliners on Iran, and he is seen as a leading proponent of the Iran nuclear accord within the Trump administration. He has reportedly urged the White House to recertify Iran’s compliance with the Iran nuclear deal.

IISS’s website contains a list of groups, corporations and government entities that provide funding to the think tank, including during the period of McMaster’s work there. Curiously missing from the page of donors, however, is the controversial Ploughshares Fund, a grantmaking group identified last year by the Obama White House as central in helping to market the Iran nuclear deal to the news media.

An archived version of IISS’s donors page lists Ploughshares as a donor.

Breitbart News has found that IISS is listed as a grantee for Iran issues in Ploughshares Fund’s budget report for 2016.

That report spotlights IISS as a grantee for Iran work done by Michael Elleman, IISS senior fellow for missile defense.

In a recent IISS analysis, Elleman cast doubt on charges that Iran and North Korea are working together on ballistic-missile development, claiming “there is little evidence to indicate the two regimes are engaged in deep missile-related collaboration, or pursuing joint-development programs.”

 

Georgetown University bio.

IISS has not returned Breitbart News requests seeking clarification on the Ploughshares funding and inquiring about McMaster’s work at IISS, including any salary that he may have received.

Ploughshares Fund is financed by Soros’ Open Society Institute.

The involvement of Ploughshares in selling the Iran agreement to the public was revealed in an extensive New York Times Magazine profile of Obama’s former deputy national security adviser, Ben Rhodes, titled, “The Aspiring Novelist Who Became Obama’s Foreign-Policy Guru.” The article contains interviews with Rhodes and scores of top Obama administration officials.
