'Everything The President Wants To Do, McMaster Opposes,' Former NSC Official Says

Donald Trump has not warmed to the State Department

National security adviser H.R. McMaster said it's "impossible to overstate the danger" posed by North Korea.

"Very few people know who's going to get axed next, but if you're viewed as a Flynnstone it's a liability", said a person close to the White House, referring to staffers hired by McMaster's predecessor, retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. Bannon pushed for the U.S.to pull out of the region, while McMaster argued for even greater involvement.

In an interview with MSNBC's Hugh Hewitt, Mr McMaster said Mr Trump has been "deeply briefed" on the strategy on North Korea.

McMaster, it should be noted, was the Trump administration's most senior representative and speaker earlier this year at the Israeli embassy's annual Independence Day event.

Teva Pharmaceutical has announced dramatic plans to downsize following a grim second quarter earnings report released on Thursday. Teva also cut its interim dividend by 75 percent, due to market sluggishness in the USA , according to Reuters .

Last Thursday, Derek Harvey, senior director for the Middle East, was kicked off the NSC after complaints directly from Secretary of Defense James Mattis, a McMaster ally. Both men, for instance, agreed that the Trump administration should certify that Tehran is complying with the Iran nuclear deal - a pivotal decision that Trump resisted last month despite concerns that not issuing the certification would infuriate USA allies and forfeit all current restrictions on Iran's nuclear program.

Trump has always been a skeptic of lingering USA involvement in foreign wars and has expressed little interest in deploying military forces without a specific plan on what they will do and for how long. During a July 19 meeting in the White House Situation Room, Trump demanded that his top national security aides provide more information on what one official called "the end-state" in a country where the United States has spent 16 years fighting against the Taliban with no end in sight.

Senior Adviser and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner also backed the globalist general: "General McMaster is a true public servant and a tremendous asset for the president and the administration", he said.

Fox News is told by National Security Council sources, however, that the letter was a pro forma document similar to those sent to every living former national security adviser and former president - and that he was required to send it.

FBI Joins HBO Hack Investigation as Insiders Worry About Fallout
Hollywood studios increasingly are ripe targets for hackers trying to get access to unreleased TV episodes and films. HBO is investigating after hackers claimed to leak spoilers for the next episode of " Game of Thrones ".

His dismissal follows other recent changes at the NSC.

Rich Higgins - a former member of the Pentagon, head of strategy. "After extensive research, Harvey compiled a list of suspected leakers and reportedly delivered it straight to the president, who then took his list to McMaster".

Trump also says McMaster "is a good man and very pro-Israel".

John Kelly's recent move from homeland security secretary to White House chief of staff should ensure McMaster's independence and control over the NSC - for now.
