Bolton to Obama Holdovers: “Start Packing Their Sh*t”
Former President Barack Obama was a treasonous traitor. Far too many people are afraid to call the man what he really was.
Conservatives have become too polite. Most don’t seem to realize that politics is not a game, but a way of life. The Left recognize this, which is why they vote for completely incompetent, and highly controllable people like Barack Obama.
Obama did the bidding of those who put him in power. They powers-that-be knew Obama would perform as instructed, because they made him, thus they could break him.
Obama craved the spotlight. So for him, success was achieved.
Obama planted the worst people in government. He filled every position with the most vile Leftists on the planet. Finally, we now fully see the results. Former CIA director John Brennan, an avowed communist, and Muslim Brotherhood supporter. This man ran the CIA, and recently issued a threat to the POTUS.
Look at Obama’s FBI. Crooks from the top down.
Donald Trump knew these people existed. But I suspect even he remains surprised at what he now faces. I can only believe his personnel moves are based on new knowledge of the evil he actually faces.
Trump is astute. I’m sure he realizes that Obama holdovers infiltrate all aspects of the American government. They represent America’s worst enemies.
But the big surprise involves Trump’s own staff. McMasters is a perfect example. The Daily Caller reports:
Sources told Foreign Policy that Bolton’s planned purge will start with Obama administration holdovers and eventually broaden to include leakers and those disloyal to the president.
“Bolton can and will clean house,” a former White House official told Foreign Policy.
Another official issued a warning to former Obama officials — “Everyone who was there during Obama years should start packing their shit.”
But the purge reportedly won’t stop with former Obama appointees. A source told Foreign Policy that Bolton intends to “remove almost all the political [appointees] McMaster brought in.”
Why did Trump have McMasters? As Mike Scruggs wrote:
Twenty-five centuries ago, Chinese General Sun Tzu summarized an important principle of war: Knowing your enemy is essential to both avoiding defeat and achieving victory. Knowing the ideology of those who want to destroy you is absolutely essential to internal security, sound foreign policy, and military preparedness. Freedom, peace, and prosperity depend upon accurate knowledge, right interpretation, and right actions.
But exactly how did McMasters get called up from the minors?
According to an article by Jed Babbin in the American Spectator, Senator John McCain and Gen. David Petraeus recommended McMasters as National Security Advisor.
McCain? The guy who hates Trump.
Scruggs offers a bit of history on McMasters from Aug 2017:
In the last two weeks, McMaster has stepped up his purge of opponents of Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran on the NSC staff, including Derek Harvey, Rich Higgins, and Ezra Cohen-Watnick. Besides opposing the Iran nuclear deal, these three held dissenting views on Islam as a religion of peace and were strong advocates of a crackdown on leaks within the national intelligence agencies.
According to Bloomberg, Derek Harvey had compiled a list of Obama holdovers on the NSC staff, who were suspected of making leaks to damage Trump in the media. On the other hand, McMaster has defended and retained top subordinates to former NSA Susan Rice and her almost as notorious spin master, Deputy NSA Ben Rhodes, and even let Rice and Rhodes retain their Top Secret security clearances. Rhodes was a key operator in selling the Iran nuclear agreement and the demonization of Flynn in the media. According to Babbin, there are about 50 Obama holdovers who need to be cleared out but are being retained by McMaster. Lt. Gen. McMaster received his last two stars from Barack Obama.
I leave you to judge where you believe McMasters’ loyalty lies.
Keep in mind that the DC swamp creatures have been around for longer than the swamp. Leftists created the swamp to accommodate themselves. So don’t expect Trump to have drained the swamp in a year or two.
These latest steps by Trump to bring on Pompeo and Bolton showcase that Trump understand what he’s up against. You can bet in the next two years he will have a keen grasp on where the plug is located to official drain that DC cesspool.
Who else did President Trump hire to fire? Who else does he have his eyes on? I suspect many, and they don’t even realize it.
