Exclusive: Dr. Gorka tells BLP Trump is winning, Obamacare is the next ‘big muscle move’

Published

A former deputy assistant for national security to President Donald J. Trump told Big League Politics that Americans can expect a continued commitment to keeping campaign promises, especially repealing Obamacare, from the Trump administration moving into the new year.

“He’s kept his promises, whether it’s removing us from the Paris Accord, whether it’s recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, whether it’s crushing ISIS,” said Sebastian L. Gorka, a leading defense expert, who has returned to the Washington-based The Institute of World Politics and he is the author of Defeating Jihad: The Winnable War. The world-renowned counter-terrorism expert spoke at the Student Action Summit on Thursday in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Gorka said that the Trump administration has driven a stake through the heart of President Barack H. Obama’s signature legislation by repealing the Obamacare individual mandate in recently-passed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

“The national security agenda is going to continue with the stabilizing of threats to the United States, continuing the extreme vetting and immigration reform,” the British-born professor said.

Gorka said that there is still work to be done, such as the repeal of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. “The big muscle move, of course, for the next year after the tax reform is going to be Obamacare.”

Now, it is up to the GOP to step up to the plate for the president with a “repeal and replace” package that they have been promising for the last seven years, he said. “So, no big surprises, just keep on trucking.”

Ciara C. Carter, a student from New Mexico attending this year’s Turning Point USA convention, told BLP that she is glad Gorka talked about the impact of open borders on national and economic security. “I’d really love him to jump into strengthening the immigration laws, particularly on the southern border.”

Thomas M. Pastor, a student from Florida, said Gorka is right about Trump winning on his agenda. “I feel like Trump is already on such a great track in fulfilling the promises he made during his campaign.”

Senator Rand Paul To Ask POTUS To Revoke John Brennan’s Security Clearance

Published

on

In a set of tweets posted by Senator Rand Paul on Monday morning, the Kentucky Republican says he will be meeting with President Donald Trump to ask that CIA director John Brennan’s security clearance be revoked.

“Is John Brennan monetizing his security clearance? Is John Brennan making millions of dollars divulging secrets to the mainstream media with his attacks on @realDonaldTrump,” Paul tweeted Monday morning. “Today I will meet with the President and I will ask him to revoke John Brennan’s security clearance.”

This request by Senator Rand Paul comes on the heels of Tucker Carlson mentioning last week that Brennan still had a security clearance, despite no longer working for the federal government.

The Fox News host called Brennan an “out-of-the-closet extremist”, and further called for Brennan’s security clearance to be removed.

CIA directors typically hold on to their clearance for several years after they’ve left office, mainly so they are able to share insights with current directors.

Just last week Brennan used the words “nothing short of treasonous” to describe Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, and claimed that it showed President Trump was “wholly in the pocket of Putin.”

Brennan, who served under former President Barack Obama, has been accused of political bias by several House Republicans suggesting that his bias may have prevented him from being impartial in 2016. On Sunday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte said the committee is planning on calling in Brennan to testify.

During an interview with Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures”, Goodlatte said, “We have lots of questions for John Brennan and he will definitely be sought by the committees for an interview. The chairman continued,”This is an extremely disturbing thing to see both he and (former FBI Director) James Comey, supposedly impartial government officials carrying out their jobs in very important areas in intelligence gathering and law enforcement, express the kind of extreme bias that they’ve shown now,” Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican, said on Fox News. “which I think reflects quite accurately what they were doing back in 2016.”

Senator Rand Paul just blocked a resolution last week from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) that would support the U.S. intelligence community’s assessment of Russian election interference, and that demanded the president speak with special counsel Robert Mueller, calling it “crazy hatred” and the resolution was just another sign of “Trump Derangement Syndrome”.

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla) called ex-CIA chief Brennan a “disaster” while accusing him of being a member of the Communist Party during the Cold War. Brennan has admitted that he did indeed vote for the Communist Party’s presidential candidate in 1976, Gus Hall, claiming it was just his way of “signaling my unhappiness with the system, and the need for change.”

“John Brennan was a disaster as CIA director. He was a disaster as the counter-terrorism official. He was a member of the Communist Party during the Cold War,” DeSantis said on Fox News.

Should someone who has called the president “treasonous” have top secret clearance?
