Former executive chairman of Breitbart, Stephen Bannon, has been removed from Trump's National Security Counsel.

Courtesy of Bloomberg:  

President Donald Trump reorganized his National Security Council on Wednesday, removing his chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, and downgrading the role of his Homeland Security Adviser, Tom Bossert, according to a person familiar with the decision and a regulatory filing. 

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster was given responsibility for setting the agenda for meetings of the NSC or the Homeland Security Council, and was authorized to delegate that authority to Bossert, at his discretion, according to the filing. 

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 NSC’s principals committee.

Well now, a shake up with the Trump team. Yous just know this is going to get nasty.

I would suggest that this is Jared Kushner's doing as it is well established that he does not like, nor trust Bannon.

In fact according to long time Trump adviser Roger Stone, Kushner has been trying to push Bannon for quite some time:  

“Jared Kushner, perhaps the one presidential aide who cannot be fired, is now in regular text message communications with Joe Scarborough,” Stone said during a Tuesday appearance on Infowars. “Many of the anti-Steve Bannon stories that you see, the themes that you see on ‘Morning Joe,’ are being dictated by Kushner. And while Mr. Kushner’s plate is very full with Middle Eastern peace and the China visit, and so on, in this case I think he is disserving the president.”

It seems that for all intents and purposes that Jared Kushner IS the de facto President of the United States, with Trump only serving as a figurehead.

And if it WAS his decision to remove Bannon from the National Security Council it is clear that he is substantially more intelligent than the president the Russians chose for us.

Not that I think this thirty six year old punk, with no political experience, is qualified for the job in any way. Just that he is likely more qualified than the moron that was supposedly elected to the position.

    This entire ass clown show must be escorted out of the buildings including jared. This is beyond criminal. This entire group are corrupt and using this country as their personal self serving agenda. There are major things happening to our military, to other countries, to our rules, regulations, laws, agencies, programs, schools, everything under this corrupt asshole fraud. Donald John Trump. He must resign today and take the entire bunch of con artist with him now. And WE THE PEOPLE DEMAND a new election and The entire republican party held liable for the damages caused by this outrageous criminal intent to cause treason and espionage to our democracy and constitution. All that willingly voted for trump and this outcome must be held liable and exposed today.

    The tip of iceberg shit floating in the swamp. It is only the beginning of the end of this clean up. Trump should not be allowed to meet with anyone else ANYWHERE. That fraud has caused unspeakable damage to this country already and he cannot represent or act as us president when he is not. The election was rigged by Russia and China. This crime against America must be stopped today. NO MORE fraud and fake news against our USA citizens.

    McMasters also reinstated the high level govt officials Trump and his team booted off the NCS... McAsters told Trump either Bannon goes or I go.

    Trump and the King of Jordan are having a press conference at the White House and as usual Trump keeps repeating "I, I, I, me, me,me" and he's working real hard to have peace between Israel and the Palestinians. We all know Jared Kushner is doing that. The king is just puckering up and kissing Trump's ass and as usual blaming President Obama for just about all the problems worldwide. Makes you want to throw up. I hope you post Trump's side of his speech.

      dRUMPf has a very obvious 'tell' - every time he says 'believe me' (extremely often), he is purposefully LYING. Not that he isn't lying 99% of the time anyway.

      I think the world knows he is a do nothing liar, but they have too much class to call him on it at a press conference.

      I don't think that Jared Kushner has a clue what to do about anything in the international realm. He's another, albeit much younger, real estate inheritor from NYC. Rich as can be with no experience in 1) politics, 2) international affairs, 3) government.

      tRump caused a hell of a lot of upset in a few weeks. Imagine if the gop and Russia had stayed out of the election, Hillary would be President, and the country would be on the right track. tRump and his entire family are know-nothing screw ups. The German people were outraged that their leader was sat next to bimbo Ivanka at the conference table. Who elected HER?

      Trump is the mess. The man is a rapist, cheat, liar and con artist. He is a sewage salesman and leech of society. He rigged the election to avoid prison. And now he involves ANYONE that will stand next to him including his own children other people's children and his relatives that will be held additionally for liability and for aiding criminals under investigation. Trump and Friends have only one way out. Confess.

    Pres. Obama is blissfully swimming in a warm Tahitian lagoon, sauntering off in his flip-flops to get a tall, cold one, then casually going into his open-walled hut to work on his bio. God, I miss him!

    And Bannon and the rest of those Alt-right traitors should be put into a compound with armed guards where they can't do any more harm. We'll get around to giving them a fair trial soon, then the executions can start.

      President Obama is now writing his book about his presidency. I'm sure he is relishing being out of sight and out of mind. I'm glad he is not hearing the baloney Trump says about him.

      I miss his presence in our American world though...God, how quickly things changed with Trump and his ilk being in the leadership roles! We are not the same and will never be.

      Thank you, President Obama for your two-terms as our wonderful President of the United States.

    Hey we are witnessing terrible evil history in the making. Donald Trump and his criminal friends have committed treason, espionage and fraud against this country and other countries and all of us that have paid attention to truth and facts are aware of it. Some of us are more so victims because of harassment beyond fake news. Our families have been professionally attacked, our privacy stolen, our bank accounts hacked, regular online bullying. If we do not stand together, fight these criminals and reverse the damage to this country today? Then we might as well be covered in chemical gases and burn the constitution, bill of rights, and all documents that form our democracy.

    "a professed sexual abuser and adulterer who boasts of grabbing unsuspecting women’s genitals. He is proudly ignorant and does not read books. He is a bully. He may be a clinical narcissist." "He is a serial liar who has bragged about being able to KILL people in the street without consequences."I THINK DRUMPF HAS ALREADY DONE IT FOR THE RUSSIAN MAFIA-YEARS AGO......

    "Perhaps the Los Angeles Times did not hear the alarms sounded by political commentators and analysts such as Matt Taibbi, Henry Giroux, Charles Pierce, Charles Blow, Joan Walsh, Chris Hedges, Michael Moore and Amy Goodman about the impending doom that would be a Donald Trump presidency? Maybe those who are somehow shocked by the unapologetic and grand vileness of Donald Trump’s presidency did not read the many essays and columns warning of that possibility either in the foreign press or in publications like Alternet, Truthout, Common Dreams, the Atlantic and Salon? Even more worrisome, perhaps the Los Angeles Times did not take its own writing about Donald Trump as a presidential candidate seriously.

    The use of the words “us” and “we” in the Los Angeles Times’ recent editorial are very important. They signal how the Times, like too many other parts of the “mainstream” or “elite” news media was willfully blind and deaf to those others — people of color, women, Muslims, gays and lesbians and members of other communities — who immediately recognized the clear and present danger to the United States embodied by Donald Trump and the revanchist reactionary Republican Party he represents."downplayed Trump’s lies and demonstrated incompetence, minimized Trump’s connections to Vladimir Putin, and magnified nonstories such as Hillary Clinton’s emails in order to maintain the appearance of “fairness” and “balance.” These obsessions gave Donald Trump an advantage." He is a performance artist, con man and “postmodern” political personality for the age of reality TV, social media and the internet. By comparison, the traditional American news media were using telegrams and mimeograph machines — and still are."American corporate news media outlets gave Donald Trump, the political arsonist, a can of gasoline and a box of matches. They then act shocked when he burns down an orphanage.

    Donald Trump is one of the greatest villains in American life.

    OT:
    "The operative word in the name is “short.” The fund allows investors to profit based on the opposite performance of U.S. Treasury securities. In other words, the fund allows Navarro and other investors to bet against the United States debt, on the presumption that U.S. Treasury bonds will be worth less over time. Should the United States default on its national debt, the stock value would skyrocket."While theoretically his holdings could create a financial incentive for Navarro recommend policies that are harmful to the stability of U.S. Treasury securities as part of Trump’s economic team, at the very least, it could indicate just how little faith he has in Trump’s ability to make “make America great again.”
    Navarro is not the first prominent politician to effectively bet against America with his investments."

  21. You're wrong.

    Didn't IVANKA just get an office in the White House? Didn't IVANKA just get a post as some sort of unofficial handler for her batshit crazy dad?

    IVANKA DID THIS!

    Yes, Kushner wanted it and Kushner and Bannon have been fighting for control of Trump ever since the election.

    But make no mistake. This is IVANKA pulling the strings.

    So I wonder what the real reason little donnie took president bannon off the NSC!!!

    I have a feeling McMasters told little donnie to get him out or maybe little donnie was a bit angry at president bannon for given him that E.O. to sign, that he never read, and this was payback.
