The War Against H.R. McMaster

The pro-Trump media have launched an all-out assault against H.R. McMaster; https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/08/the-war-against-hr-mcmaster/536046/?utm_source=nl-atlantic-daily-080417

"Rumors have circulated for days that the national-security adviser’s job is on the line, and the pro-Trump media have launched an all-out assault against him....Long-simmering tensions within the White House burst into public view this week after the firings of three National Security Council officials, resulting in National-Security Adviser H.R. McMaster becoming Public Enemy No. 1 of the pro-Trump online brigades.

McMaster has cleaned house at the NSC over the past few weeks. Via his deputy Ricky Waddell, he fired director of strategic planning Rich Higgins last month over a memo Higgins wrote alleging a deep-state conspiracy against President Trump. McMaster then dismissed two top officials brought on by the previous national-security adviser, Michael Flynn: the NSC’s senior director for the Middle East, Derek Harvey, who was fired last week; and the senior director for intelligence programs, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, who was let go on Wednesday.

“I’m watching the elephants trample the grass as they fight each other,” said one senior White House official. “There is some collateral damage when the elephants fight.”

Can This National Security Council Handle a Real Crisis?; https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2017/08/national-security-council-crisis/535641

"The people in the Situation Room inevitably neglect basics that will keep them, and the rest of us, alive. In this White House, the risks are especially high...It’s hard to believe, but this administration has not experienced a genuine national-security crisis in more than six months in office.

Yes, missile tests in North Korea and a boiling regional spat in the Middle East are spiking blood pressure across DC, but the most nightmare-inducing risks have originated in the president’s own social-media rhetoric, not the crises themselves. Recent turmoil within the National Security Council has been almost entirely generated by its own members, some of them newly former. While the people in the West Wing protest and sputter in response..."

McMasters is no Priebus. I'd suggest that anyone reaching out for McMasters is likely to come back with a bloody stump.

Now that we're in a possible war emanating standoff with North Korea, McMaster's stock just soared!

Maybe. I've not heard much about the White House being dissatisfied with McMasters, but that won't stop anything if Trump gets a wild hair.

Trump may not be finished with staff shakeup https://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-may-not-be-finished-with-staff-shakeup/

"In the Trump world, nothing is certain until it happens, but there are rumblings that President Trump isn't yet finished with his staff shakeup. After firing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson by tweet Tuesday, it's possible other administration officials also may be leaving as soon as this week.

The sense that H.R. McMaster's days are numbered as national security adviser has reached something close to a fever pitch. Several sources inside and outside the White House say they expect McMaster to leave this week and, in all likelihood, return to the Army with the anticipation that the three-star general will be given a fourth star. This would be part of the easing out deal Defense Secretary James Mattis (who retired as a four-star general) has quietly nudged along."

Trump decides to remove national security adviser, and others may follow http://wapo.st/2pjkYMT?tid=ss_tw&utm_term=.142b66339643

"President Trump has decided to remove H.R. McMaster as his national security adviser and is actively discussing potential replacements, according to five people with knowledge of the plans, preparing to deliver yet another jolt to the senior ranks of his administration.

Trump is now comfortable with ousting McMaster, with whom he never personally gelled, but is willing to take time executing the move because he wants to ensure both that the three-star Army general is not humiliated and that there is a strong successor lined up, these people said.

The turbulence is part of a broader potential shake-up under consideration by Trump that is likely to include senior officials at the White House, where staffers are gripped by fear and un­certainty as they await the next move from an impulsive president who enjoys stoking conflict."

McMaster out, Bolton in and McMaster even going to now leave the U.S. Army via retirement:

Trump removes H.R. McMaster as national security adviser, replacing him with John Bolton https://usat.ly/2GjsKkJ

"President Trump fired his national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, Thursday and named John Bolton to succeed him, according to the White House.

McMaster's ouster comes amid a period of particular turmoil in Trump's national security team, as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was fired March 13 and CIA Director Mike Pompeo was named to replace him.

There has been friction between Trump and McMaster. Last month, Trump upbraided McMaster after the general told a national security conference in Munich that there was “incontrovertible” evidence of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election."

I could read the expression on McMasters face: "He can't fire me !!! I'm a General !!! Donald was nothing but a cadet in private military school for rich juvenile delinquents !!!".............. :rotflmao:
