Looks like Ivanka and Jarred are taking over.
What does this mean? Did Mz Rice and the NSA have anything to do with this?
Does Syria? Who did Bannon PO?
Probably not a bad thing. I’d trust Gen Dunford before Bannon on national security items.
This is nothing. He can still sit during NSC meetings and probably will.
Bad link... 500 server error...
Can’t get ANY links to work.
Drudge says Bannon stripped of security clearance. That is a big deal.
This sounds like Kushner is winning the battle for liberals vs. patriots.
You need to use the link in the body part where usually the extract is.
You outed yourself for violating guidelines
Both were giving errors
NOT A SHOCK! This was hinted at a MONTH ago, when McMaster was hired. #FakeNews
I think this was McMaster’s idea. This move de-politicizes the NSC.
That is NOT what the article says
“Looks like Ivanka and Jarred are taking over.”
Nancy probably agrees with you!
Pelosi Says Ivanka Trump Has Been Complicit in Her Fathers Actions

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) targeted President Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, during a Wednesday press conference. Pelosi’s comments came after she asked about comments Ivanka Trump made during an interview on “CBS This Morning.”
CBS host Gayle King had asked Trump to address those who say she is “complicit” in her father’s White House. “In an interview today, Ivanka Trump said, I don’t know what it means to be complicit’ and that not to conflate lack of public denouncement with silence.’ What do you make of these comments?” an-off camera reporter asked Pelosi.
Bannon is still there though. close to the President. Bloomberg attempts to make it sound as a shakeup when it’s not.
“A White House official said that Bannon was placed on the committee in part to monitor Trumps first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, and never attended a meeting. Hes no longer needed with McMaster in charge of the council, the official said.”
And here is good news:
“Under the move, the national intelligence director, Dan Coats, and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Marine Corps General Joseph Dunford, are again “regular attendees” of the NSCs principals committee.”
The fact that Coats is still there and is a regular is a good sign that the country is in good hands.
In the midst of accusing Rice of politicizing Intelligence, it is bad optics to have your chief political strategist in the NSC position.
Trump is entitled to make these kinds of moves after the game starts just like any seasoned businessman would do to make all the parts of his machine work more efficiently.
Media will make this out to be a big deal because they hate Bannon.
