For several days far-right sites such as Breitbart, aided by an army of Russian bots on social media, have pressured Trump to fire National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster. Just in from the extremist Center For Security Policy:
The Center for Security Policy last week joined with others who are alarmed at the disloyal and subversive behavior of National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster. They have joined together in calling on President Trump to dismiss McMaster from his office immediately.
Such disloyal and subversive behavior from McMaster includes undermining the President’s policies on virtually every important foreign and defense policy issue and purging staff members who support these issues, while retaining or hiring others – including large numbers of Obama holdovers – who do not.
“No voter in this country – not one – elected H.R. McMaster to run U.S. foreign policy. Actually, the winner of the 2016 election was a man who opposed virtually every aspect of the McMaster agenda – and that of the president who made its architect a three-star general, Barack Obama,” said Center for Security Policy President Frank Gaffney in a nationally syndicated radio commentary.
“It may be hard to square that reality with what has happened since McMaster became Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor. At every turn, the Army general has been insubordinate to his Commander-in-Chief. For example, he has openly opposed Mr. Trump on “radical Islamic terrorism,” Syria, Qatar, Iran, Russia and the Muslim Brotherhood.
“Of late, McMaster has taken to purging Mr. Trump’s most loyal staff members, including senior intelligence advisor Ezra Cohen-Watnik – a man the President had previously, personally insisted be retained. If such misconduct is tolerated, Trump voters will have unknowingly elected President McMaster.”
About those bots:
Last week a new web tool was launched by former FBI special agent Clint Watts to track pro-Russian Twitter bots. The new tool, which is able to track 600 different Twitter accounts which are believed to be related to Russian-sponsored influence and disinformation campaigns, has shed a tremendous amount of light on just what the Russians did and continue to do to help President Trump’s agenda, while also influencing American politics.
Take for example one of the top trending bot hashtags over the last week, according to Watts’ new tracker, #FireMcMaster. This hashtag was being pushed furiously by the Russian-controlled bots after it was revealed that McMaster had cleared Susan Rice of any wrongdoing related to the possible unmasking of individuals within the Trump campaign.
It certainly doesn’t seem like a coincidence that 600 of the top known Russian bot accounts on Twitter have furiously pushed the #FireMcMaster hashtag at the same exact time that the former Bannon-run Breitbart was pushing out story after story trying to discredit the 3-star general.
