The saga that has seen National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster purging the National Security Council of Trump loyalists, believed to be leakers, has been given a new context, as a journalist who may have an internal source has recently posted a cryptic and potentially telling tweet.
Alt-right media personality Mike Cernovich posted a tweet regarding McMaster on Aug. 11, saying: “McMaster what’s your spirit animal? @Breitbartnews is Honeybadger.”
The seemingly nonsensical tweet potentially has more to say about the media sources that remain on the NSC than meets the eye. PJ Media first deduced this by noting that sources within the Trump administration said the “Spirit Animal” jargon refers to a brief meeting McMaster had with NSC confidants in the days prior to Aug. 11. At the meeting, the group apparently joked about each other’s spirit animals.
The relevance of this is that McMaster, by Aug. 11, had seemingly purged the NSC of the Trump loyalists he believed to be leaking stories to the media. But PJ observes that Cernovich’s tweet indicates he may have had a source on the NSC after McMaster supposedly got rid of all of them.
The attacks on McMaster coming from nationalist perspectives on international relations, such as The Jerusalem Post’s Caroline Glick and the Zionists Organization of America’s Morton Klein, slamming his middle east policy, seemed to be a result of joint nationalist allies now being on the outside looking in.
As McMaster was roasted in early August, the now-McMaster-loyal administration launched a media campaign in defense of him, saying his policy was to re-establish Executive Branch decorum through the necessary removal of “alt-right” thinkers. It also hinted the leaks had been funneling to the disreputable Mike Cernovich.
But if PJ Media is right in their estimation that Cernovich’s Aug. 11 tweet indicates he still has a source in the NSC, there are two strange conclusions that can be drawn.
To quote PJ Media:
So America is now presented with two options to consider regarding what has transpired throughout 2017 at the NSC under National Security Adviser McMaster:
A. Either McMaster has chosen to restaff the NSC only with people loyal to Mideast policy he has embraced throughout his recent career, even though his policy preferences are in intractable opposition to those of the current Commander-in-Chief; or —
B. Several career intelligence officials of high regard, all of whom shared the distinction of having been selected for duty at the NSC because they were loyalists to Trump’s Mideast platform, somehow became Trump antagonists once McMaster, the real Trump loyalist, was appointed to lead them.
