WASHINGTON: The Democrats are fighting very hard to protect it’s Deep State and the power they have enjoyed. Until Donald Trump that is. In 2017 Mike Cernovich wrote Meet Eric Ciaramella — H.R. McMaster Appoints Susan Rice Ally to be his Personal Aide.
In his article he writes:
“West Wing officials confirmed to Cernovich Media that Eric Ciaramella, who worked closely with Susan Rice while at NSC, was recently promoted to be H.R. McMaster’s personal aide. Ciaramella will have unfettered access to McMaster’s conversations with foreign leaders.
Ciaramella’s ascension is surprising considering pro-Trump sources within the Obama administration disclosed to me in December 2016 that Ciaramella’s helped draft Susan Rice’s anti-Trump talking points before the Inauguration.”
“In fall of 2016 as Obama’s director for Ukraine on the NSC, Ciaramella was the main force pushing Trump-Russia conspiracy theories.”
General H.R. McMaster
General McMaster’s resignation as Trump’s National Security Advisor on March 22, 2018, opened the office for former United Nations ambassador John Bolton, making him the third person to take on the role during the current administration.
When appointed, McMaster did inherit a National Security Council in deep disarray. Prior to McMaster, General Michael Flynn held the position from January 20-to February 13, 2017. Flynn being forced out less than a month in the position. His non-crime, for which he continues to pay, being the mischaracterization of conversation with the Russian ambassador in the telling to Vice President Mike Pence.

McMaster entered a White House fray with competing for power players with “sharp elbows and ties to the President.” Including then-chief political strategist Steve Bannon. Along with fellow Breitbart alum Sebastian Gorka, Bannon formed the “Strategic Initiatives Group.” Some have described the group as a “shadow” NSC.
Other major players in the national security realm include Pence, White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and senior policy adviser, and speechwriter Stephen Miller.
“There’s no question that the current White House team will be a tough group to break into, but if they expect H.R. McMaster to pull his punches as national security adviser, or sit in the background passively amidst the infighting, they have hired the wrong guy,” said Joseph Collins, director of the Center for Complex Operations at National Defense University.
McMaster likes the battle of ideas, he notes, and is good at distilling complex concepts and seeing the big picture.
“Throughout his career, McMaster has also always been about achieving victory,” he said. “He’s always thinking in terms of doing whatever is necessary to win.”
Mc Master’s military career spans 34 years of active service.
The President expressed his support for a departing McMaster, despite the disagreements that they had.
I am pleased to announce that, effective 4/9/18, @AmbJohnBolton will be my new National Security Advisor. I am very thankful for the service of General H.R. McMaster who has done an outstanding job & will always remain my friend. There will be an official contact handover on 4/9.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 22, 2018
At the time of his resignation, McMaster saying:
“After thirty-four years of service to our nation, I am requesting retirement from the U.S. Army effective this summer after which I will leave public service. Throughout my career it has been my greatest privilege to serve alongside extraordinary servicemembers and dedicated civilians,” McMaster said in a statement adding. “I am thankful to President Donald J. Trump for the opportunity to serve him and our nation as national security advisor.”
Eric Ciaramella – If at first, you don’t succeed, try, try again
Ciaramella, at 33, is a career CIA analyst. He was Ukraine director on the NSC toward the end of the Obama administration. He stayed on during the first few months of the Trump administration. Under Trump, he was acting senior director for European and Russian affairs as well as the special assistant to Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, Trump’s then-national security adviser.
As a top aide to H.R. McMaster, Ciaramella was also given access to President Trump’s conversations with foreign officials. Allegedly Ciaramella is one of the original White House leakers. The claim is that Ciaramella is the person who told the media about classified conversations Trump had with Russian diplomat Sergei Lavrov.
Ciaramella’s first complaint was after a call between President Trump, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak. In that call, Trump dismissed Russia’s election interference saying the US and other countries had done worse.
Following that call, and allegations by “three former officials with knowledge of the matter” McMaster opined:
“The president in no way undermined sources or methods in the course of this conversation.”
When those efforts failed, he became the leaker behind the President’s call to Ukraine’s President Zalesky.
When we forget history, it tends to repeat itself.
Trump’s alleged crime in these early days was not buying into the Democrat narrative that Russian interference somehow ensured the election of Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton.
A ridiculous assumption as Clinton has bent over to appease Russia at every opportunity. Including the sale of US Uranium to Russia in 2010. Done under, and with, the Obama administration. A thinking person needs to ask why would Russia opt for Trump over decades of compliancy, and criminality, from Clinton?
The Selling of America – Protecting the Uranium One money trail
The sale of Uranium One to the Russians is just the last known anti-America function of the Clinton Cabal. Among the Obama Administration, participating in the Uranium One deal enriching the pockets of the Clinton Foundation was then-Attorney General Eric Holder. Holder joining Hillary Clinton on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.
“Journalist Anne Williamson, appearing before Leach’s House Banking Committee in September 1999, explained to a panel of stunned congressmen how so many US taxpayer dollars had managed to go missing in Russia. She told the committee that the Clintons had set up an “international patronage machine.” Clintonites in the guise of “consultants” to the Russian government request and received loans, virtually at will, through such international lending agencies as the IMF, the World Bank, the US Agency for International Development, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation and the Export-Import Bank. Few questioned the loans, said Williamson, because the Clinton administration had designated Russian “privatization” a “national security” priority. Much of the money simply vanished into offshore accounts and the New York Stock Exchange. Other monies were invested in Russian junk bonds, privatization auction and other lucrative schemes. A handful of insider players, Russian and American alike, got rich, while the average Russian, – not to mention the US taxpayer – got fleeced.
(George) Soros insists that his own investment in Russia were squeaky clean. This is debatable. His privileged access to Kremlin officials and friendly oligarchs helped lubricate many deals.”
“Before the Obama administration had approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.”
Uranium One, Soros, Clinton and Obama
Author Peter Schweizer, in his book Clinton Cash, broke the story that a Canadian uranium company, seeking approval of a sale to the Russian government from then-Secretary of State Clinton’s State Department, had donated millions to the Clinton Foundation.
The Hill further reporting (FBI uncovered Russian bribery plot before Obama administration approved controversial nuclear deal with Moscow)
“the FBI had obtained an eyewitness account indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.”
Staunchly pro-Ukraine and anti-Russia, Ciaramella is a Democrat’s dream
As a student at Yale, Ciaramella was a social justice activist. Ciaramella leading a force to bridge the gap between the United States and the Middle East through the use of the Arab language.
The NSC, under McMaster, became rife with anti-Trump Republicans, Susan Rice allies, and Obama holdovers. President Trump’s America First foreign policy deemed “naive” by McMaster.
In addition to stacking the NSC with pro-Susan Rice, anti-Trump figures, McMaster is said to have actively purged anyone loyal to Trump.
Pro-Trump Robin Townley’s security clearance was revoked without a discernible reason. Townley had his request for special security clearance denied by the CIA. Thus preventing Townley from being able to serve in the NSC post.
And all of this is what Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, and the Democrats are fighting so hard to protect.
The dots are not hard to connect. Politicians at the public trough have been benefiting from their “service” to America for Decades. It began with patriarch Joe Kennedy purchasing the White House for his son John F. Kennedy (John F Kennedy’s dirty road to the White House). The post-Eisenhower Deep State winding itself through the second half of the 20th Century was only interrupted by President Ronald Regan. And it is still alive, as evidenced by the Democrat’s desperation to protect the Biden’s actions in Ukraine, as we begin the end of the race to 2020.
We can only hope, and for some pray, that Trump keeps the White House in 2020. That he will continue to act for the benefit of the American people. And that the truth of the Democrat’s ploy to destroy America will prevail.
