Sebastian Gorka Leaves White House, Complains it’s not Islamophobic Enough

by LUKE BARNES & ADDY BAIRD – It’s unclear whether he resigned or was pushed out. Sebastian Gorka, a national security adviser to President Donald Trump, will be leaving the White House, multiple news outlets reported Friday evening. In his resignation letter, first obtained by the Federalist, the controversial counterterrorism adviser said he was dissatisfied with the current direction of the administration’s foreign policy — especially in wake of Trump’s recent speech on Afghanistan. Gorka, who was a prominent cheerleader for Trump on cable news, expressed particular dissatisfaction that the president’s speech on Monday did not mention the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism.” “Given recent events, it is clear to me that forces that do not support the MAGA promise are — for now — ascendant within the White House,” Gorka wrote. “As a result, the best and most effective way I can support you, Mr. President, is from outside the People’s House.” “Regrettably, outside of yourself,...

Fascists Within Trump White House Started Working to Protect White Nationalists Before Taking Office

by Mark Sumner – Radical white supremacists have represented the greatest terrorist threat to America over the last 16 years, during which these extremists have been responsible for 26 attacks across the nation. That’s why the United States had programs in place to counter white nationalism and to deal with Americans radicalized by the violent rhetoric of these groups. Had programs. Because under Donald Trump the program for countering violent extremism has beencut and revamped to exclude white supremacists. That includes completely eliminating funding for the only group dedicated specifically to this threat. Weeks before a violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, led to three deaths and 19 injuries, the Trump administration revoked a grant to Life After Hate, a group that works to de-radicalize neo-Nazis. The group had been awarded $400,000, but Trump aides stepped in before the money could actually be delivered. And who acted so quickly to make sure this...

Trump Adviser Gorka Compares N. Korea Threats to Holocaust to Cap Off His Week of Lunacy

by Hunter – White House “adviser” and alt-right ex-Breitbart frother known for wearing the official medal of a Hungarian band of Nazi collaborators Sebastian Gorka has been a busy media bee this week, possibly because Sean Spicer and Reince Priebus are no longer around to keep him off the airwaves. He began by denying that there had ever been any incident of terrorism “that was unconnected from ISIS or al Qaeda,” an assertion so obviously ridiculous that it may qualify as evidence of insanity. After approximately one billion people pointed out that that wasn’t true—that in fact not only were there plenty of (Oklahoma City) examples of (Atlanta Olympics bombing) terrorist attacks not perpetrated by those two groups, and that right-wing American terrorists in fact have been a much deadlier force in this nation in the last decade than Muslim radicals—Gorka then went on to clarify that oh, well, none of that counts so shut...
