Former Trump Administration National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster Joins the Board of ChiCom Connected Zoom

Published

On May 6, 2020, former national security adviser H.R. McMaster joined the board of virtual conferencing company Zoom to serve as an independent director according to a report from Politico.

So far, this is the most high profile hiring of a former government official that the company has made.

The move represents a growing push by the company to strengthen its relationship with Washington as its services have grown in demand due to the Wuhan virus pandemic.

Zoom has been scrutinized by lawmakers and regulators for its failure to protect privacy and keep security risks in check. Similarly, the company has also received criticism for temporarily routing calls through China, which has raised questions about the overall security of its system. Zoom claims that the move was a mistake and the calls should have been routed through other countries.

McMaster, a retired Army lieutenant general, worked inside the Trump administration until he was fired in 2018.

“My goal is to help the company navigate rapid growth and assist in meeting Zoom’s commitment to becoming the world’s most secure video communications platform,” McMaster declared in a statement.

A Zoom spokesperson informed POLITICO that the company has also hired two other consulting firms — American Continental Group and The Cohen Group — to strengthen its D.C. outreach. Another prominent former Trump administration official, former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, holds a position as a senior counselor for The Cohen Group.

The revolving door between the defense sector, government, and private companies is very strong.

Not only does it foster corruption, but it can also be exploited by China, which has become more active in using its soft power to undermine U.S. interests by infiltrating corporations.

Should Trump get re-elected, he must completely re-tool his national security and trade policies so that America has a lean foreign policy that contains Chinese influence.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
