Dina Powell Is OUT

Published

Dina Habib Powell will be leaving the White House at some point in the New Year as President Trump looks to make a staff shakeup at the one-year point.

The Jared Kushner and Ivanka associate was known for her close working relationship with Gary Cohn, the establishment Goldman Sachs veteran whose presence as a White House adviser rankled Trump loyalists like Steve Bannon.

The departure of Powell might spell trouble for her pal Cohn, whose career in the White House has been propped up by support (and threats) from major globalist financial institutions on Wall Street. Big League Politics has reported on Cohn’s daughter’s deleted anti-Trump tweets.

Powell was a foreign policy adviser and Bush administration alum who, according to The New York Times, enjoyed influence outside merely the foreign policy realm and was even discussed as a possible chief of staff. The Bannon foe’s friends cited her work commute and family issues for her departure, which is Washington-Speak indicating that she is being forced out.

President Trump Announces Planned Ban on Chinese-Owned TikTok App

The app has serious spying concerns.

President Donald Trump announced that he’s preparing to ban the video app TikTok on national security grounds on Friday, citing the concerns over the Chinese app’s connections to Chinese government security, and the potential use of the nominally innocent app to surveil American citizens.

The President had made the announcement on an Air Force One flight to the press pool, later confirming that the media could report on the policy move on the record.

As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” said the President bluntly.

TikTok is a viral video app marketed to teenagers and young adults that allows users to create short and edited videos. It’s frequently used for memes, pranks, and simple political content. It’s owned by Chinese company ByteDance, which is obligated to cooperate with Chinese intelligence services under the laws of China.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had previously spoken of security concerns involving the Chinese app. Microsoft had recently offered to purchase the app from its parent company, but the surveillance and security surrounding it appear to have shelved such a possibility for now.

There are genuine surveillance and data-mining concerns with TikTok, but it’s also probably worth considering that banning the app will allow neoliberal tech monopolies such as Facebook and Apple to share up an even larger share of the demand for platforms designed for similar content.
