Source: H.R. McMaster Angling For White House Chief of Staff Position

Published

on

According to a source close to President Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, the three-star general has been telling advisers and confidantes that he will be the next Chief of Staff.

While there is no indication that McMaster is being considered for the job by Trump, a source explained that McMaster is privately telling those close to him that the position will be his. Currently, McMaster is in line to become a four-star general, but the source claims that McMaster stated that he would be willing to forgo it for the White House gig.

The revelation comes as reports claim that Reince Priebus, the current Chief of Staff, will be moved to a position as the ambassador to Greece.

“Some Trump associates said there have even been conversations about dispatching Priebus to serve as ambassador to Greece — his mother is of Greek descent — as a face-saving way to remove him from the White House,” a report from the Washington Post claimed.

A White House spokeswoman “strongly denied” the Post’s report, however.

McMaster is not a favorite among Trump’s base of supporters, as his eagerness for regime change in Syria stands in stark contrast to the president’s campaign promises of “America First” and non interventionist policies. He was also fawned over by liberal media for going against his predecessor, General Michael Flynn, and claiming that the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism” is “not helpful.” He added that groups like ISIS represent a “perversion of Islam, and are thus un-Islamic.”

Prior to accepting a role as the National Security Advisor, McMaster was a Consulting Senior Fellow for the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) — a UK-based think tank with financial ties to globalist billionaire George Soros.

In April, Disobedient Media reported that the organization’s donor list includes Soros’ Open Society Foundations, the Ploughshares Fund, Carnegie Corporation New York, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Northrop Grumman, Executive Affairs Authority – Abu Dhabi, The Saudi Arabian Ministry of Defense, the China Institute of International Studies (CIIS), the embassies of China, Egypt, Turkey, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, the United Arab Emirates and the High Commission for Pakistan.

The report details that the Ploughshares Fund is also financed by Open Society Foundations.

According to a report from the New York Times, the organization was a “major player” in gaining support from the American public for the Iranian nuclear deal.

IISS has also taken over $25 million in funding from the Bahraini royal family in 2015 — which accounted for over half of their funding for that year.

McMaster held the role within the IISS from September 2006 to February 2017.

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.
