‘The left is aligned with Islamists’: Trump NSC staffer ousted for writing unhinged memo

Published

on

A former Trump National Security Council staffer was fired last month because he wrote an unhinged memo that claimed there was a grand conspiracy between Islamists, bankers, globalists and “the left” to bring down President Donald Trump’s administration.

The Atlantic reports that Rich Higgins, a former Pentagon official who served in the NSC’s strategic-planning office as a director for strategic planning, was ousted on July 21 over a memo he wrote that embraced wild conspiracy theories to explain the difficulties that Trump was experiencing trying to get his policy agenda passed.

“Higgins’s memo describes supposed domestic and international threats to Trump’s presidency, including globalists, bankers, the ‘deep state,’ and Islamists,” The Atlantic writes. “The memo characterizes the Russia story as a plot to sabotage Trump’s nationalist agenda. It asserts that globalists and Islamists are seeking to destroy America.”

Among other things, the memo alleges that “the left is aligned with Islamist organizations at local, national and international levels,” and that all President Trump’s enemies are engaging in what amounts to a “Maoist insurgency” against his administration.

“Maoist methodologies are described as synchronized violent and non-violent actions,” he wrote. “This approach envisions the direct use of non-violent operations arts and tactics as elements of combat power In Maoist insurgencies, the formation of a counter-state is essential to seizing state power. Functioning as a hostile compete state acting within an existing state, it has an alternate infrastructure.”

The Atlantic writes that Higgins’ ouster “marks the latest victory by National-Security Adviser H.R. McMaster in the ongoing war within Trump’s White House between those who believe the president is under threat from dark forces plotting to undermine him, and those like McMaster who dismiss this as conspiratorial thinking.”

Republican Martha McSally absolutely destroyed by GOP consultant for her defense of Trump

Published

Interim-Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) was shut down on Twitter on Friday by a top Republican as she tried to defend President Donald Trump on Twitter.

House impeachment managers have argued that America cannot wait until the 2020 election to pass judgment on Trump, as the first article of impeachment was passed because the House of Representatives concluded he was attempting to cheat in the election.

"The president's misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box. For we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won," Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) charged on Friday.

McSally said Schiff was wrong and judgment on Trump should be decided by the voters, even if Trump was caught cheating.

Published

on

It's clear some U.S. Senators are continuing to breach the oath they took to be impartial and consider the impeachment professionally, according to CNN reporter Mike Warren.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), who was once seen as an independent thinker, proved he's over it, when he lamented to other senators he wanted to go home because no one is paying any attention anyway.

Speaking to Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN), who has already admitted that Trump is guilty but he doesn't care, Romney was overheard complaining during the last break.

“I think we’ve got another 6 hours," said Braun.
