If You Can’t Trust the Government…

A poll came out just recently from Monmouth University in New Jersey. It showed that Americans are more aware of the Deep State and its evil machinations  than the Deep State could wish for.

According to an article on Zero Hedge for  March 19th: “Just over half of the public is either very worried (23%) or somewhat worried (30%) about the U.S. government  monitoring their activities and invading their privacy. There are no significant partisan differences—.Fully 8-in-10 believe that the U.S. government currently monitors or spies on the activities of American citizens, including a majority (53%) who say this activity is widespread and another 29% who say such monitoring happens but is not widespread. Just 14% say this monitoring does not happen at all. There are no substantial partisan differences in these results.”

And let us not kid ourselves, the Denizens of the Deep State, elected and un-elected, fervently wish that we were all like that 14% who never got out of the starting gate. That’s why they are so ticked off that Hillary wasn’t able to steal the election in 2016. If she had become president you all know as well as I do that nothing they have done, no matter how horrific, would ever have been revealed. Under Queen Hillary the shafting of America would have continued apace and we would have no idea whatever as to what was being done to us. Hillary is the female version of King Barack the First (and hopefully the last).

An interesting article appeared on http://www.bizpacreview.com  for March 20th, written by Nick Givas. He noted that “MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ was in panic mode Tuesday, after a Monmouth poll showed three out of four Americans believe in the existence of  ‘deep state.’…When the poll described the ‘deep state’ as a group of un-elected nongovernmental officials, 75% of the respondents  said they believe there is a group of power players pulling the strings.” Boy, how right they are! If only they realized the extent of it–and it includes elected officials as well as non-elected ones.

But they don’t want the public even to consider such. That’s one reason we got all this “Trump colluding with the Russians” pig slop thrown at us. It’s a great diversion. According to Givas “Washington Bureau chief for USA Today Susan Page, said the poll numbers are a result of attacks against the government and believes people should trust the government to investigate itself.” Read that last statement again before you fall to the floor and laugh your backside off! She’s got to be kidding, right? The government investigate itself??? Come on lady, you can’t be that naive can you? Or do you just hope the rest of us are? Trusting the government to investigate itself is akin to handing the keys of the chicken house over to Brer Fox because he’s already told you, through his press agent, that he’d protect all those chickens and eggs. After all, why shouldn’t you trust him. You have his word. If you don’t trust his word you must be one of those deplorables or “bitter clingers”, one of those ignorant people who will never realize how good a Marxist government really can be for all of us (especially those at the top).

For all those folks that are now beginning to grasp the fact that there is a Deep State, peopled by both non-elected and elected denizens, whose job it is to turn this country into a third rate banana republic that will easily fit into its slot in a One World Government, I would strongly encourage you to begin to do some homework about the Deep State and who runs it and what their agenda for you and your children really is. Because they have one, whether you like it or not!

Start by going back a few years and checking out a book by an ex-FBI agent Dan Smoot, published way back in 1964,  called The Invisible Government. I believe you can find it on the internet (if they haven’t removed it for your own good).  You can probably read it there for nothing. Won’t cost you a thin dime! From there you might want to try None Dare Call It Conspiracy by Gary Allen, published in 1976 I think. I think that’s on the internet also. From that you can skip to Gary Allen’s next book The Rockefeller File. That one might also be on the internet, but check Amazon if you can’t find it there. It will tell you how much the Rockefellers had to do with education in this country, and how that will affect your children and their children. Then there is one by Cleon Skousen called The Naked Capitalist.  I’m not sure if that one is on the internet, but check Amazon if you don’t find it there. Most of this stuff you can read via the internet for nothing. All it will cost you is a little time and concentration–and none of it is difficult reading. It’s all written for ordinary folks, otherwise I couldn’t grasp it!

Then, crank up your search engines and check out the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderburg Group. There is quite a bit out there about these groups and some about who is, and who has been, in them. Most folks don’t realize that H. R. McMaster, one of Trump’s advisors, is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. If you can start to work your way through some of this it will be a great start in learning about what the Deep State does and how they do it–and have been doing it for at least a century! You won’t like a lot of what you find. It will make you made like it did me, but you really need to be aware of it.

Reading some of this will begin to show you how the Deep State operates and will even give you some thoughts about what you can start to do about it. I realize that lots who read this won’t do anything about it, but I pass this along for the really concerned minority who has figured out that something is radically wrong with this country and want to do something about it. This material mentioned above, and prayer to God for wisdom and discernment is where you begin. And you can’t just start and leave the prayer part off, because the Lord is the one that ultimately gives the wisdom and discernment as to what you need to do and how you need to do it.

Update:

As if to corroborate what I wrote above on the Deep State, Rand Paul has made comments that appeared on the Zero Hedge site on 3/22/18 in reference to the Deep State. Senator Paul appeared on the Laura Ingraham Show and said: “Absolutely, there is a Deep State. because the deep state is the intelligence agencies that do not have oversight.” In other words, there is no congressional oversight of the agencies–they do what they darn well please. Senator Paul continued:”Only eight people in congress know what they’re doing, and traditionally, those eight people have been a rubber stamp to let the intelligence communities do whatever they want. There is no skeptic among the eight people that are supposedly overseeing the intelligence community.” You can’t say it much plainer than that! The mere handful in Congress that do know what they are doing are just rubber stamps for their “activities.” They are a law unto themselves. They do what they want because they can!

Paul noted that he felt “Obama-era CIA Director John Brennan, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and others used intelligence collected ‘without any judicial warrants’ for political purposes, in addition to ‘trying to bring Trump down’.”

I have to admit, I can’t disagree with Senator Paul. If any of you all have listened to John Brennan since he left office, you almost get the feeling that he is still running the CIA, or at the very least, thinks he ought to be. Brennan is an Obama devotee who converted to Islam somewhere along the line and talks like he thinks he’s running the  government. He even told Trump at one point to “keep your mouth shut.” He comes across as a third rate Islamic political thug!

He recently referred to Mr. Trump as a “disgraced demagogue” and told him he would not destroy America. Problem is, the “America” that John Brennan wants to preserve is one that needs to be destroyed–it is the American version of the Gulag!

Wonder if we should write our Congress critters and tell them we’d like to see more congressional oversight of the CIA and the NSA besides the rubber stamp characters that automatically support these groups presently. It couldn’t do any harm.

“Secret Society” in FBI and DOJ? Naw, (except where there is)

by Al Benson Jr.

Back 40-50 years ago there was a big fuss among the liberals, Leftists, and communists (but I repeat myself here) about how the John Birch Society was a “secret society” out to do the country harm, a “secret society” on the Right. Needless to say the Birch Society was never a “secret” society and all that bovine fertilizer about them was just that–an eight letter word we don’t say in polite company. The Birch Society has been an excellent educational organization and I never hesitate to use their documentation in articles because their research is impeccable.

They are the folks that exposed the unelected rulers of American government–the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderberg Group, who are, in a sense, this country’s “invisible government” because members of these groups infest government, the “news” media, the military, major universities and all manner of other places that affect the lives of ordinary Americans. These groups all push, in one form or another, some sort of world government where national sovereignty is destroyed. Tower of Babel here we come!

And now, after decades of Leftist psychobabble about rightist “secret societies”, lo and behold, we are being told about one in the FBI/DOJ, infested by Leftists who wanted Clinton elected president instead of Trump. All kinds of testimony seems to be coming out about this secret society in these two governmental agencies. As the man says “you can’t make this stuff up!”

The deliberate attempted destruction of the Trump presidency by these Leftists and those who are financing them seems to be of such gigantic proportions that it makes Seven Days in May or The Manchurian Candidate look like child’s play–a Sunday School picnic!

The American people, minus those on the Far Left and those “useful idiots” they have managed to brainwash, elected Donald Trump to be president. But these Far Left Swamp Creatures and their “running dogs” don’t like what the American people voted for and so they think it is their bounden duty to overturn what we voted for and possibly replace it with (gag!) Hillary and her Loony Left cohorts. In their unlimited wisdom these people think they know better than we do what’s good for us–America last and deepening socialism– and if they can somehow deep six Trump you’d better believe that’s their plan for us. And you can bet the three groups mentioned earlier in this article will all be gung-ho for that scenario. A major part of their One World Government agenda is the total shafting of the American middle class and the destruction of our God-given liberties.

It seems (and I hope it is accurate) that some congressional committees have heard about this FBI/DOJ “secret society” and they plan to investigate it.  Congressman Trey Gowdy stated: “I’m going to want to know what secret society you are talking about, because you are supposed to be investigating objectively who just won the electoral college.” Good statement, but let’s don’t kid ourselves. There has been absolutely nothing objective about this Russian collusion delusion or anything else involving Trump. Mueller’s committee has been busy trying to do a hatchet job on the Trump Administration for almost a year now.

Even one of the most vocal anti-Trumpers involved has had to admit that there “is no there, there.” What he’s saying is that there is really nothing to investigate regarding Trump’s collusion with Russia–it’s all hocus-pocus, smoke and mirrors,  basically a gigantic farce designed to make Trump look bad. And they’re spending millions of our tax dollars to do it. Ain’t that nice?

Unless Trump, somehow, manages to have these people exposed there are people in his own administration working just as hard to unseat him as Hillary ever did. Do you suppose any of them have possibly interlocking memberships in the CFR/Trilateral Commission/Bilderberg Groups? Trump made some lousy choices when picking his team to run the country and he is going to need to get rid of some of these people. One of his chief advisers, H. R. McMaster, belongs to the CFR. That being the case he doesn’t belong in a Trump Administration, and he is only one example.

Lets face it, The Swamp does not want to be drained. It’s denizens enjoy slopping around in the political ooze and they will resist anyone who tries to drain their Homeland and give the American public half a chance. They hate this country, they hate God, they hate YOU! Their agenda is to destroy all three! However, on their way to their own destruction they will make lots of people miserable.

Hashtag: “Fire McM…..”

by Al Benson Jr.

I have been told that there is a new hashtag out there on Twitter (if they haven’t removed it already) that says “FireMcMaster” and that lots of folks are responding to this, which can’t make the managed media overly happy.

Last evening someone sent me an internet article about National Security Adviser H. R. McMaster briefing cultural Marxist George Soros on what’s going on in the White House with the possible takeover and removal of President Trump from office.

The original article was from infowars.com and while I realize lots of folks don’t like Info Wars for various reasons, I do have to say this– they have good sources and they get the information right. Along with several other sites, I have followed them regularly and usually, if they say something, you can take it to the bank–as long as you actually look at what they said and not at what someone else says they said.

I looked up the Info Wars article on the Internet and found pages and pages of where others had picked it up, one outfit from as far away as New Zealand.

The article was written by Kit Daniels on August 8th and I will quote a little of what he says.  He began with: “National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster is an active operative of globalist billionaire George Soros, according to three separate domestic and foreign intelligence sources…” And he quotes Roger Stone, who has been a political operative since the early 1960s. Stone says: “I have confirmed from sources from inside the White House, the Israeli government and Israeli intelligence that the Israelis have intercepted email communications from General McMaster to George Soros, informing him of everything that’s going on inside the White House…I have double checked this with two different sources very high up in Israeli intelligence, and I actually expect the Israeli ambassador to the US to confirm this.”

Stone noted that: “George Soros has penetrated the Trump White House. Soros has planted a mole infiltrating the National Security apparatus: a woman named Fiona Hill, who has a Harvard background, and has been on the Soros payroll of the Open Society Institute.” Ms. Hill is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

You might be tempted to wonder why the Zionists would have all that much trouble with McMaster. One reason might be an article on the New York Times website for February 24, 2017 which states: “H. R. McMaster breaks with administration on views of Islam.” In other words, McMaster takes a more Obamaesque view of Islam than  President Trump does. In fact, as I have said in previous articles, McMaster disagrees with Trump on just about everything–so why is he where he is? Who advised Trump to choose this turkey for such a high and important position? Inquiring minds sure would like to know. When it comes to picking people from some of these important posts, Trump, almost inevitably, seems to choose people that are guaranteed to give him a hassle over what he wants to do.  And with McMaster he has picked a real beaut–one that is now coming back to bite him unless he does something about it.

As the hashtag said “FireMcMaster.”

Update: Came across an article on http://www.wnd.com for August 11th by Leo Hohmann about the strange bedfellows that McMaster has. Mr. Hohmann noted: “If H. R. McMaster’s committment to President Trump’s conservative agenda is to be judged by those who defend him and want him to stay on as White House national security advisor, it’s not looking good for him.”

“In the past McMaster has been publicly defended by John McCain, R-Ariz, groups funded by George Soros and Media Matters. Now comes the latest endorsement, from the Islamist group CAIR, also known as the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which was shown in federal court to be a front group for Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood’s branch in the Holy Land.” These are some of Obama’s good buddies!

They are labeling those who want McMaster gone as “white supremacists.” Sound familiar? Now McMaster is as lily-white as many of the rest of us, yet those who want him gone are now “white supremacists.” The Swamp must be getting some heat about McMaster and his CFR connections or all these leftists would not be stepping up to the plate to tell us what scumbags we are for wanting him gone.

Coups And Questions

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Has anyone other than me noticed a subtle shift in the direction the Trump administration seems to be taking? I try to keep track of all this, from various websites to You Tube presentations,to news articles people send me, and in just the last few days, I have gotten the feeling on the back of my neck, where the hair stands up (what there is of it) that something is going on–and it ain’t good!

One source noted some signs of a possible coup, and one of those signs was a lack of information for the President from previous sources, which have been mostly good sources. Now it seems that his “new” sources of information all have to be “official” sources, which means that friends, and even some family, no longer seem to have access to him and information previously passed to him by friends now has to go through “official” channels, which will ultimately decide what the President sees–or if he sees it at all.

Trump has three generals in the White House. At least two of them have connections with Deep State organizations. So who advised him in choosing these guys? None of them are on the same page he is on, but yet they all have high level positions in his administration and he has been out there defending at least one of them against those who have taken the trouble to point this out. So what’s the deal?

Congress has just recently passed a bill on Russian sanctions, which don’t help our situation regarding World War 3 to any great extent. Supposedly the bill was on Trump’s desk by July 29th. I even read some articles that said that Congress passed this to tie Trump’s hands in dealing with Russia. Makes you wonder which side Congress is really on–well, not quite–seeing that leadership positions are held by Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, whose wife is also in Trump’s cabinet and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out which side Congress is on–and it ain’t ours!

If Trump signs this bill–does it indicate that he has seen the handwriting on the Deep State wall and is ready to throw in the towel. Or does it indicate that his decisions are already being made for him and no one else realizes it yet? Has decision making on important issues been taken away from Trump? I realize there are lots of questions here but I want folks to start thinking about this stuff.

If the Deep State is making the major decisions already, will they, in the long run, even be able to leave Trump alive? He represents what many Americans want–a desperately needed change in the direction this country has gone in for decades. Ultimately, the Deep State not only hates Trump, but all of us “deplorables” that voted for him too. Should some “accident” befall him, would that be a Deep State lesson to patriotic Americans to just “shut up and sit down?”—or Deep State Daddy will be coming for you?

Michael Savage has said that if the Deep State takes out Trump there will be a civil war in this country. Ordinary folks will rise up and fight back. One can hope and pray that Michael Savage is right. Based on what I have seen over the years, all I can say is that, on this and several other questions “I’m from Missouri–you gotta Show Me!”

It seems we are entering a time when Christians are really going to need to be able to discern good from evil. Or as Matthew said in Matthew 7:15, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” Some of them may come in military uniforms with lots of medals on them, and some may come in expensive suits worn by congressmen, but the “ravening wolf” part still applies–maybe even more so.

When Trump got elected I felt the Lord was giving us one more chance to repent and start to turn around. I’m not sure we’ve done an awful lot of that. Judging from some of the response I’ve seen, lots of folks, when Trump got elected, just said: “Well, we’ve got another Republican in the White House now so we can all just take it easy and go back to sleep for another four years.” That was hardly the response that is needed.

If the Deep State succeeds in taking out Trump, unless there is great revival, you will not have another chance at decent government in this country, not only in our lifetimes, but in the lifetimes of our great grandchildren. Most people do not realize what is at stake here. Most Christians do not realize.

Puppets Pulling Strings For Other Puppets

by Al Benson Jr.

Just this evening someone informed me about a new website that deals with H. R. McMaster, the CFR operative that seems to be trying to push Trump in certain directions that are not good for his agenda or for the country as a whole.

The site is http://www.mcmasterleaks.com  and on the first page of the site is an interesting cartoon. It shows H. R. McMaster and General David Petraeus, both at the end of puppet strings held by George Soros, who, in turn, is at the end of puppet strings being held by the Saudis. My next question is: who controls the puppet strings that hold the Saudis in place–because you know, if you are realistic that the Saudis are not the end of the road in all this. They are just one part of the machinery being used to tear down Donald Trump’s “America First” agenda. Do they get their orders from New York? London? Tel Aviv? or where?

The http://www.mcmasterleaks.com site lists several things McMaster has been involved in and gives you links to check out

There is some interesting commentary on this site that has links you can check out. For instance: “H. R. McMaster recently hired two of Ben Rhodes closest allies at NSC. Ben Rhodes is under investigation as part of the Susan Rice spying scandal.”

Then there is: “McMaster refuses to get rid of Obama holdovers who spied on Trump. Derek Harvey was the key figure when it came to the Middle East. He was against the Iran Deal and the funding of Palestinian Authority terror. He called out Islamic Jihad. He tried to force out the Obama holdovers running our foreign policy. And new he’s gone.”

“McMaster fired Rich Higgins for writing a memo criticizing  Islamic terrorism. Through the campaign candidate Trump tapped into a deep vein of concern among many citizens that America is at risk and slipping away. Globalists and Islamists recognize that for their vision to succeed, America, both as an ideal and as a national and political identity, must be destroyed…Islamists ally with cultural Marxists because, as far back as the 1980s, they properly assessed that the left has a strong chance of reducing Western civilization to its benefit.”

I stated in the article previous to this one Trump’s Main Enemies In His Own Administration  that several of the programs that Mr. Trump was pushing for his America First agenda were things McMaster was fundamentally opposed to, like getting out of Afghanistan and getting out of Syria. McMaster wants us to increase our involvement in these places. We’ve been in Afghanistan for 16 years now and what have we accomplished? Yet all these politicians and political generals from Bush and Obama on down have wanted us to continue there and have promoted “troop surges” which just puts more American boys in harm’s way. It seems that these people have wanted this country involved in perpetual wars–supposedly for “perpetual” peace–which somehow, never quite seems to arrive, at least not without more “troop surges.”

And, again, let us not forget H. L. McMaster’s  Council on Foreign Relations association. The CFR has always been a major part of every administration as long as I have been alive, be it Republican or Democrat, which means that there really isn’t much difference between the two. The CFR seems to be working mightily to insert its people into Trump’s administration–something I am not sure he really grasps the implications of.

At any rate, check out this new site http://www.mcmasterleaks.com and keep track of what gets posted there. You can bet the farm that the material put up there will hardly, if ever, be mentioned in your Evening Fishwrapper or on the Communist News Network.

 

Trump’s Main Enemies In His Own Administration

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

You might almost say that this is what Pogo was talking about years ago when he said “we have met the enemy and he is us.”

We all know President Trump has a ton of enemies on the political and theological Left, among Democrats, “progressives” and other slithery denizens of the “vast Left-Wing political Swamp.” These people all heartily wish Mr. Trump, his family, and his agenda extreme ill. And they are working toward that end. That’s a given.

What is not so apparent to many is the fact that these people represent only  one portion of Trump’s opposition. They are the most vile and vulgar part, but they are not the most dangerous and insidious part. The most dangerous and insidious part of his opposition hides in plain sight–as part of his administration. These are the people that are supposed to be helping him promote his America First agenda, and a handful are, but many beyond that handful are diligently working at helping him to fail in his effort, and what’s more, some of the more deluded among them may even think they are doing the country a service by aiding in his downfall. But others among them are not deluded–and they are the ones he has got to learn to beware of. Ironically, some of these are people he has chosen himself, and you have to wonder who advised him in some of these choices.

Mr Trump truly respects the military and in a sense, he has surrounded himself with generals–Flynn, Mattis, McMaster, and others. I think here that Mr. Trump has made a grave error in his thinking. Just because someone happens to be or have been a general in the military doesn’t automatically mean he is your friend. There are such things as political generals.

I have recently seen commentary on the Internet about a movie from back in 1964–Seven Days In May,  starring Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas, both dedicated Leftists in their day. Anyone remember that one?  Remember what it was about–a military coup to overthrow the president. In the movie it failed, but not by much. And there are actually people here who naively believe that “it just couldn’t happen here in America.” Well, dream on folks, because it may well, even now, be in the process of happening, and sleeping Americans won’t realize it until they wake up some fine morning not too far down the road and the prostitute press happily informs them that this occurred “while you slept.” Which will probably end up being true in more ways than one.

The question might well be asked–why are some generals in the Trump administration aiding and abetting those on the Far Left to engage in their attacks on the Trump administration?  One answer is because the generals and those on the Far Left have the same bosses.

Let me cite a classic example here, taken from an article in the Washington Examiner for August 3, 2017. The article was authored by Melissa Quinn and entitled: H. R. McMaster told Susan Rice she can keep her security clearance.

According to Quinn’s article: “National Security adviser H. R. McMaster told former national security adviser Susan Rice that she could continue to have access to classified information and that he would waive a ‘need-to-know’ requirement when it comes to accessing classified information contained in documents she saw or received during her time as national security adviser, according to a report. The letter was sent from McMaster to Rice’s home in April, according to Circa and the president didn’t know about either the letter or McMaster’s  decision to allow Rice to keep her Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information clearance.”  So here we have a woman, part of the Obama administration, about to be investigated by Congress because she was involved in unmasking people on Trump’s team during the last election, and McMaster has given her permission to keep her top secret security clearance. Why is this? It seems that several people from the Obama administration have gotten to keep their top secret security clearances when the Trump administration came in–one of them being Hillary. This enables them to get in and poke around in who knows what that they should no longer be given access to. Again, why is this??? I’d sure like to know and I am sure lots of other folks would to.

Then there was the article on http://dailycaller.com for August 3rd which said: “National Security adviser H. R. McMaster is thwarting President Donald Trump’s foreign policy prescriptions…Everything the President wants to do, McMaster opposes. Trump wants to get out of Afghanistan–McMaster wants to go in. Trump wants to get out of Syria–McMaster wants to go in. Trump wants to deal with the China issue–McMaster doesn’t…” There’s more, but you get the idea. One official stated: “I know the president isn’t a big fan of what McMaster’s doing the former official declared. I don’t understand why he is allowing a guy who is subverting his foreign policy at every turn to remain in place.”  That’s a very good question–why indeed? Is there some situation there whereby Trump is unable to do anything about this? If so, then Trump has already lost the presidency but no one realizes it yet.

McMaster is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations so you have to know he will kowtow to the One World Government cabal and their agenda. But why is Trump leaving him in place to do this. Is he so enamored of military generals that he can’t see that McMaster is deep-sixing him on every possible front? Or is there something else going on that prevents him?

And then there was the article on Zero Hedge for April 13, 2017, by William Craddick, taken from a site called Disobedient Media, in which the headline stated: “H. R. McMaster’s Ties To Soros-Supported Think Tank Raise Questions.” Disobedient Media sounds like an interesting site.

All in all, at this point, it seems that Mr. Trump is appointing people to high positions that have vested interests in seeing that he fails miserably, and because of that the American people fail. Up to this point I have supported Trump and applauded much of what he did, but if he continues to appoint people that have his demise as a main part of their agenda, then I begin to start wondering what is going on and why. Appointing those who want to make sure America continues to head in the wrong direction, according to Comrade Obama’s wishes is hardly the way to “Make America Great Again.”

Update: WorldNetDaily.com  has also, just this evening weighed in on this issue. They claim McMaster should be fired because of “subversive insubordination” in purging Trump loyalists recently.

They noted that McMaster has reportedly “blocked an attempted purge of holdovers from the Obama administration within the National Security Council, while removing a half-dozen key Trump loyalists, three in the last three weeks.” However, McMaster doesn’t like the word “holdover.”  He says “there’s no such thing as a holdover” just loyal career staffers. What a crock that is!

It seems that Trump has been kept in the dark about much of the purging, but the word seems to be “leaking out” (no puns intended) and supposedly Trump has thought about replacing McMaster with CIA Director Mike Pompeo. He needs to look somewhere else. Doing that is little more than replacing the devil with one of his disciples.
