Published

White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster’s deputy Nadia Schadlow is married to an employee of New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman’s mother.

These connections reveal the insular world that our foreign policy elites inhabit, in which the press and the players involved all travel in the same upper-crust circles, with no outside ideas managing to enter their privileged bubble.

Maggie Haberman covers the Trump administration and frequently writes about McMaster.

In May, Charles C. Johnson’s GotNews.com reported that H.R. McMaster was leaking to the mainstream media.

Two months earlier, in March, McMaster hired Nadia Schadlow, whom the Washington Post referred to as a “GOP foreign policy expert,” to serve as the National Security Council’s senior director for strategy.

McMaster and Schadlow are well-known neocon establishment types, and despised by Trump’s Deplorable base.

Nadia Schadlow is married to Philip Michael Murphy. When the two were married in 1993, Schadlow was working the Ukraine desk for the Secretary of Defense and Murphy was an editor at a Maryland-based publishing company that had purchased Regnery Publishing.

Schadlow and Murphy started a communications consulting firm called The Invisible Hand together, which Murphy ran from 2013 to 2016. In 2016, Murphy was hired as senior writer at Rubenstein.

Rubenstein describes itself as a “Strategic, results-oriented publicity & media relations” firm, based in New York City. New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman follows the firm on Twitter. Nancy Haberman is the executive vice president at Rubenstein, where her bio notes, “Has a family of journalists. And the kids she was home with now have kids of their own.”

Nancy Haberman, a “top Rubenstein exec,” is Maggie Haberman’s mother, according to New York magazine.

So, let’s recap.

H.R. McMaster has been accused of leaking. His deputy Nadia Schadlow is married to a senior writer at Rubenstein, where he works for New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman’s mom.

Mike Pompeo Said to be Considering Senate Run, Secretary of State Replacement Sought

Pompeo may be vacating his position as Secretary of State.

Published

on

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo may be preparing to resign his position to run for an open U.S Senate seat in Kansas, with Trump administration figures already researching possibilities for a potential replacement.

Trump administration officials are said to be eyeing current National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien in the event of a State Department vacancy. O’Brien has clicked with Trump far more cohesively than previous foreign policy advisors, such as fish-out-of-water neocon John Bolton and career military officer H.R McMaster.

Pompeo has always been a lukewarm executor of President Trump’s America First foreign policy platform, at times aligning with the President, yet also bowing to the conventional globalist wisdom prevalent throughout the federal department. The cabinet member began his service in the administration as Director of the CIA, an unaccountable secret agency known for extralegal attempts to interfere in American politics against the Trump campaign.

It appears Pompeo is being nudged to run for the Kansas Senate seat as a spoiler by the Republican establishment with the hopes of dashing former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s campaign. Kobach is a staunch immigration patriot who currently holds a wide lead in statewide polling, but it appears Pompeo would stand a solid chance of besting him in a Republican primary.

Pompeo’s switch from Secretary of State to Senatorial candidate doesn’t come across as the most glaring promotion. It’s possible that Mitch McConnell and bigwig Republican Senators are desperate enough to block Kris Kobach’s Senate bid that they’d manage to recruit Pompeo into taking a demotion for the cause.

He’s generally dismissed questions pertaining to a potential Kansas Senate bid, but the creation of a new personal Twitter account has made some believe he’s gearing up for a political campaign.

Pompeo’s departure could open up avenues to push the State Department in an America First direction, even if it damages Kobach’s Senate prospects. Pompeo has consistently agitated for military intervention against the Syrian government and generally fought for the United States to work for Saudi Arabian interests.
