Former Goldman Sachs banker and Breitbart editor Steve Bannon has been removed from his seat on the National Security Council, a key agency which coordinates the foreign and security policy of the USA.
Among new change announced, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Marine Corps General Joseph Dunford, will return to the committee. Energy Secretary and former Texas Governor Rick Perry, who controls the nation’s nuclear arsenal, has also been added to the committee.
The removal of Bannon was orchestrated by Donald Trump’s new national security advisor H R McMaster, who will assume control of Homeland Security.
Bannon’s ousting signals that the fraction which could be called “competent patriots” are starting to sideline the puppets of the Rothschild and Russian oligarchs.
Bannon and disgraced former General Michael “Misha” Flynn threw the key policy making body into chaos and made a power grab over its key functions on their appointment in January.
Bannon resisted his removal to the end, threatening to resign if he was removed from his position. But his powerful backers, the Mercer hedge fund family and mega donors, talked him into remaining at the White House as strategic adviser, presumablyso he could try to influence foreign policy through the back door.
Bannon along with Jared Kushner have emerged as powerful shapers of foreign policy under Trump, often acting in tandem to push the Rothschild and Russian oligarch agenda. But they have also become increasingly bitter rivals, with each blaming the other for Donald Trump’s failures and plummeting approval ratings.
“Bannon has worked closely with Mercer not only at the right-wing website Breitbart News, where her family is a major investor and where he served as executive chairman until joining the Trump campaign in August, but also at Cambridge Analytica, the data-analytics firm owned largely by the Mercers. Bannon is a part owner of the firm, though he’s trying to sell his stake, and until recently he served as vice president of the company’s board.”
