Steve Bannon is back with BREITBART NEWS, as most of you know. He said when he left the White House, he was going to WAR. There is no doubt in my mind that Steve Bannon is a good and honest man, and he represents the late Andrew Breitbart very well. I do believe Andrew is calling to him from the grave. I do not mean that in a morbid way, but I do mean he is a roaring wind from the heavens.
Breitbart published an article today, which casts McMaster as someone who is soft on Islamist extremism. I agree with Bannon’s stance on McMaster, and I have read that many times.
QUOTE: In his language, General McMaster is closer to the positions of former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush. Both took pains to separate acts of terrorism from Islamic teaching, in part because they argued that the United States needed the help of Muslim allies to hunt down terrorists.
“This is very much a repudiation of his new boss’s lexicon and worldview,” said William McCants, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and the author of “The ISIS Apocalypse.”
QUOTE: TEL AVIV — H.R. McMaster, the embattled National Security Adviser to President Trump, is threatening U.S. national security by refusing to recognize radical Islamic terrorism, a top terrorism expert told Breitbart News.
“The refusal to utter or condemn by name radical Islamic terrorism only helps makes the battle against Islamic terrorism impossible to win,” stated Steven Emerson, executive director of the respected Investigative Project on Terrorism. “If you cannot identify the problem, you cannot beat it.”
McMaster’s refusal to “condemn radical Islamic terrorism by name is a threat to our national security,” Emerson posited.
Emerson was responding to a 2014 speech on the Middle East, unearthed yesterday by Breitbart News, in which McMaster claimed that Islamic terrorist organizations are “really un-Islamic” and are “really irreligious organizations” who cloak themselves in the “false legitimacy of Islam.”
McMaster’s comments represent views of Islamic terrorism that are diametrically opposed to those espoused by President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly utilized the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism.”
McMaster, who serves in a critical national security position, seems to be minimizing the central religious motivations of radical Islamic terrorist groups who are waging a religious war against Western civilization. Indeed, in his speech, McMaster urged the audience to focus on the “human factors” that he says drive conflict while downplaying any religious motivation.
Last week, the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), the oldest pro-Israel group in the country, released an analysis of McMaster’s policies and reported views, concluding that he should be reassigned outside the NSC after it found that McMaster may be undermining Trump’s stated national security agenda.
Last week, Breitbart News reported that McMaster served at a UK-based think tank financed by a controversial, George Soros-funded group identified by the Obama White House as central in helping to sell the Iran nuclear deal to the public and news media.
All I can say is WOW! You need to read the rest of the article, and God bless Breitbart and Steve Bannon. We must not forget Steven Bannon was a highly respected Naval Officer. I would say he struck fast and went down hard in the first battle with Enemy Number 1: H.R. McMaster.
Breitbart.com — which ousted White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon called his “killing machine” on Friday — reframed this as “H.R. McMaster Endorsed Book That Advocates Quran-Kissing Apology Ceremonies.”
The article alleges that McMaster is insufficiently anti-Islam and points to his supposed alignment with billionaire financier — and perennial right-wing bogeyman — George Soros as evidence that McMaster is undermining the white nationalist agenda from inside the White House.
