This article by Patrick Howley originally appeared at The Daily Caller:
The national security establishment responsible for the last four administrations’ foreign policy disasters is clearly on its way out. The elevation of White House chief strategist Steve Bannon to the National Security Council marks a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a real change of direction in our foreign policy, and an incredible chance for peace.
Bannon is the torch-bearer of the populist nationalist movement, which aims to strengthen America economically and militarily while opting for diplomacy on the world stage. The populist nationalist vision seeks to repair, perhaps even atone for, the record of needless intervention and hubristic nation-building registered by the Clinton-Bush-Obama axis of incompetence. The populist nationalist agenda will fight terrorism without further de-stabilizing countries like Iraq, Syria, and Libya for craven profit.
President Trump has dismissed the State Department’s senior leadership to pave the way for the rationalist foreign policy of his Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson. He has dismissed the “Fake News” about alleged Russian “election-hacking.” He has nominated men like General James Mattis and General Mike Flynn, who are committed to fighting better, not bigger. He is following through on his campaign theme of “America First.”
The populist nationalist movement is gearing up to fight for its rightful place in U.S. foreign policy. This is not a battle between Republicans and Democrats. This is a battle between Trump and Bannon’s shared vision of peace through strength, and the dark twisted view of a military-industrial complex playing a global game predicated on the marginalization of the American people in their own affairs. That corrupt crowd, including leaders of the so-called “intelligence community” (an Orwellian term if ever there was one) will do everything it can to cling to power. But, let’s be honest: they are completely losing their minds. And their clout.
Look at what Trump is tweeting about RINO-saurs John McCain and Lindsey Graham, those untouchable GOP heavyweights who are nothing more than glorified Democrats now. Look at the boldness! Look at the high energy!
…Senators should focus their energies on ISIS, illegal immigration and border security instead of always looking to start World War III.

Kristol is aiming for the heads of Bannon and White House adviser Stephen Miller, a brilliant populist nationalist visionary who comes from Senator Jeff Sessions’ vaunted policy shop (incidentally, the Southern Poverty Law Center is also taking aim at Bannon and Miller at the same time. Yay bipartisanship!)
9. Best way symbolically to emphasize that: Announce Stephen Miller (who has no national security background) won't have role in this area.

What, exactly, can Kristol do at this point? He already showed his hand during the election and he went bust. When I was working as a reporter under Bannon for Breitbart News, covering the #NeverTrump movement, Kristol’s allies tried incessantly to get me fired from the news organization, but failed to make any progress. After I left Breitbart immediately after the election to start a new advocacy group, a Weekly Standard staffer and other neoconservative operatives falsely implied on Twitter that they got me fired. I didn’t really appreciate that, to say the least. Kristol’s resignation from the editorship of the Standard came soon after.
Wall Street Journal neocon Bret Stephens is also doing what he does best: mischaracterizing people’s statements to score petty political points on behalf of the Establishment:
If Kristol and Stephens are the last line of defense for the Deep State, then the G-Men are in trouble.
There is one solid, foolproof way for Bannon supporters to back up their torch-bearer at this moment of great conflict and illusory power-mongering. Bannon supporters must preach to the Left.
Progressives have been fighting since the Bush administration to overthrow the neoconservative Deep State and to withdraw from follies like Kristol’s Iraq War. But the Left seems oblivious to the tremendous anti-establishment progress being made by Trump and Bannon. Instead, leftist coalitions agitate against Trump on behalf of politically correct taboos.
As long as the Left is marching in lockstep, the Trump White House will have to continue to play ball with Paul Ryan, McCain, Lindsey Graham, and other members of a Republican Establishment that wants to undermine the Republican president.
Progressives must learn how Kristol and his allies flipped on a dime from Republican to Democrat in a bid to get Hillary Clinton elected over Trump. Progressives are still sore about Trump’s Access Hollywood tape featuring Billy Bush, but who leaked that tape? Multiple insiders told me in no uncertain terms that Paul Ryan’s adviser Dan Senor was integrally involved. Jeb Bush promoted the tape. Why would these Republicans support a Democrat like Hillary Clinton so easily?
It is time for progressives to wake up from their pro-P.C. protests and appreciate the winds of change: the establishment in both parties is on its way out. The two-party system is going down, and the Deep State is moving to the retirement home.
It is time for Bannon supporters to finally break the progressive coalition once and for all, free the Bernie brigades from its confused ideological stupor, and explain the REAL terms of the war waging behind the Washington scenes.
Go! Now! Go! Go! Go!
House Republicans Beg Attorney General Bill Barr to Investigate Hunter Biden’s Laptop
Barr doesn’t seem too concerned.
House Republican leaders are pleading with Attorney General Bill Barr, essentially begging him to actually investigate Hunter Biden’s laptop.
They issued a letter to Barr on Monday urging him to appoint a special counsel to look into the contents of Hunter Biden’s emails, which appear to show an extreme amount of cronyism that may implicate his father in some illegal or at least highly immoral activity involving foreign governments.
“These alleged revelations raise serious questions about former Vice President Joe Biden’s reported participation with his son’s business, dealings, specifically whether the former vice president (1) received foreign monies during his tenure in the Obama administration and (2) if former Vice President Biden allowed his son to peddle access to his father with foreign business entities,” the letter states, according to a Fox News report.
House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) signed the letter along with Reps. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Ted Yoho (R-FL), Andy Harris (R-MD), Steve King (R-IA), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Jody Hice (R-GA), Ted Budd (R-NC), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), and Mark Green (R-TN).
“Americans deserve public officials who take great care to protect the integrity of their offices. Our constituents place great trust in their leaders at every level of government to conduct the people’s business with the utmost honesty, transparency, and accountability,” the letter continues. “If these reports about former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, are true, the former vice president fell far short of his responsibility to uphold his constitutional oath and betrayed the sacred trust of the American people.”
“It is imperative that the American people receive answers and a full accounting of former Vice President Biden’s dealings with his son and his son’s business partners, and if the former vice president misused his office for personal gain,” the letter states.
However, these Republican lawmakers are not likely to get anywhere considering Barr’s inability or unwillingness to clean up deep state corruption.
Big League Politics has reported on how Barr’s probe into the Russia-gate scandal is resulting in no indictments despite the incredible amount of evidence showing brazen criminality:
Those who “trusted the plan” that Attorney General Bill Barr was going to clean up the deep state and put corrupt actors from the Obama administration to justice are learning a hard lesson in how the swamp works.
Barr, who initially served under globalist President George H.W. Bush and was responsible for orchestrating the heinous Ruby Ridge atrocity, is reportedly not going to charge anyone from the Obama regime for the “unmasking” of their political opponents in the Russia-gate scandal.
According to the Washington Post, the investigation ordered by Barr has concluded without “finding any substantive wrongdoing.” U.S. Attorney John Bash is the man who was tasked with this investigation by Barr, and he is allegedly using his authority to protect the deep state from being held accountable for the greatest crime in American history. Barr’s office is hiding Bash’s findings from the public.
Bash announced his departure from the Department of Justice on Oct. 5 but never mentioned the unmasking probe. The AG’s office has seemingly done everything in its power to keep this information under wraps, similar to what has been done with the probe into the origins of the Russian collusion scandal that is being conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham…
President Trump is getting the picture that he along with the American public have been had by AG Barr and other veteran deep staters.
“If that’s the case, I’m very disappointed,” Trump told Rush Limbaugh last week. “I think it’s a terrible thing, and I will say it to [Barr’s] face.”
Barr has shown he is all bark and no bite. If President Trump gets elected to a second term, Barr will need to be replaced with an AG who has a spine in order for lasting reforms to institutional corruption to take hold.
