Sources within the White House assert that President Trump is considering nominating former Virginia Senator and Secretary of the Navy Jim Webb as the new Secretary of Defense.
Webb is a Democrat who ran in the 2016 election as a skeptical voice within the Democrat Party, unafraid to challenge establishment consensus on foreign policy and cultural issues. He spoke after the election about how the Democratic Party had shifted to the far left, making him a sore thumb in the party.
Webb would be nominated as a qualified national security figure who shares Donald Trump’s views on a restrained foreign policy and the need to withdraw American troops from eternal nation-building missions, such as Syria and Afghanistan. Previous Defense Secretary James Mattis resigned from office, making it clear in a resignation letter that he couldn’t continue working under a President like Trump who deviated ideologically from some of the hawkish views dominating U.S foreign policy for more than half a century.
Like Mattis, Webb is a decorated Marine Corps veteran. Webb graduated from the Naval Academy in 1968 and deployed to Vietnam shortly after, earning a Navy Cross and two Purple Hearts. Webb described his experiences being wounded in combat in Vietnam in a 2015 Democratic Party debate, referencing the Viet Cong enemy combatant who wounded him when asked to describe one of his greatest enemies.
Webb medically retired from the Marine Corps on account of his injuries from Vietnam and went on to become Ronald Reagan’s Secretary of the Navy in 1987- meaning a potential role in the Trump Administration as Secretary of Defense would be his second round of serving under a Republican President. He was elected a U.S Senator for Virginia in 2007, and was a consistent opponent to the Iraq War, aligning concisely with President Trump’s non-interventionist instincts.
Webb has also become a Democratic voice against the party’s addiction to racial politics and cultural animuses.
Left-Wing Extremist Charged in Alleged Florida Capitol Attack Identified Soros as “Sponsor”
Daniel Alan Baker had bragged of a Soros sponsorship.
A left-wing extremist arrested and charged with a terrorist plot to confront and kidnap protestors at the Florida Capitol identified billionaire George Soros as his “sponsor” in a YouTube video. Daniel Alan Baker, 33, has been federally charged with transmitting a threat to kidnap or injure.
Baker appears to have fought overseas with a Kurdish militia group identified as a terrorist organization by the State Department, the Marxist PKK. He’s an Army veteran who appears to have been discharged after going AWOL before a deployment.
Baker has been charged for an alleged plot involving a group of armed leftists surrounding pro-Trump protestors at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration. It’s unclear if right-wing protestors even intend to demonstrate at the site, and Baker’s dangerous attempt to incite an armed confrontation may never have advanced beyond speculative stages.
A “call to arms” flier seen on Baker’s YouTube channel calls for Florida residents to surround supposed “racists” and to “trap them inside” the State Capitol, advocating for the kidnapping of supposed Inauguration demonstrators.
In a YouTube video calling for doxxing attempts on individuals present at the raucous US Capitol riot, Baker brags of having acquired the globalist oligarch as a “sponsor,” implying that the megabillionaire had provided him with an “antifa card.”
Baker’s remarks may have been hyperbole, intentionally seeking to draw attention from critics of the Hungarian-born liberal kingpin.
A charging affidavit also alleges that Baker advocated for the assassination of United States military officers on his YouTube channel, a threat that could potentially incur even more serious criminal charges.
The FBI believes that Baker intended to assassinate Turkish military personnel training in the United States, and that he was on the scene during Seattle’s Capital Hill Autonomous Zone anarchist rebellion. Baker identified himself as a “hardcore leftist” on his personal social media, as well, urging his followers to “prepare for war” after the November 3rd election.
