In July 2012, Perez — then the assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division, was asked by Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ):
Will you tell us here today that this administration’s Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?
Perez could have simply answered yes, and maybe even cited the First Amendment. Instead, Perez refused to answer the question directly. Franks persisted, ultimately asking it four times.
Perez at one point responded that it was a “hard question.” He simply refused to affirm that the Obama Justice Department would not attempt to criminalize criticism of Islam.
So this was the choice for Democrats: a Congressman with many connections to an organization dedicated in its own words to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within” or a foe of the First Amendment right to the freedom of speech. The foe of the freedom of speech won.
That’s today’s Democratic Party.

“Former Labor Secretary Tom Perez elected DNC chair,” by Ryan Struyk and MaryAlice Parks, ABC News, February 25, 2017:
Former Secretary of Labor Tom Perez has been elected the next chair of the Democratic National Committee, grabbing the reins of the political wing of the party and emerging as a key figure in the party’s opposition to President Donald Trump’s agenda.
More than 400 party insiders gathered in Atlanta this weekend to cast their ballots. The former Obama appointee will try to rally the party of Democrats still reeling from its presidential election defeat and crippled by down-ballot losses across the country over the last decade.
Many in the party’s progressive wing had rallied around Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, expressing their frustration with the status quo of the party. They felt strongly that Ellison better identified with the grassroots movement growing across the country in opposition to Trump.
Perez had fallen one short shy of victory in the first round of voting.
“We need a chair who can not only take the fight to Donald Trump, make sure we talk about our positive message,” Perez told the crowd before the vote. “We also need a chair who can lead turnaround and change the culture of the Democratic Party and DNC.”
The next chair will be key in trying to unify and rally a party still reeling from its presidential election defeat and crippled by down-ballot losses across the country over the last decade.
“We’re in this mess because we lost not one election but a thousand elections,” Ellison said before the vote. “We gotta go to the grassroots, ya’ll. Unity is essential. We gotta walk out of here with unity.”…
 As soon as Tom Perez was chosen as head of the DNC, he chose Keith Ellison as Deputy Chair, signaling that he would do the bidding of the Islamic supremacist groups with whom Ellison is affiliated. Of President Trump, he says: “He hasn’t proposed anything but chaos and carnage from day one. We’ve seen no evidence of anything constructive from this president.” For Perez and the Democrats, protecting the American people is “chaos and carnage” and nothing “constructive.”

Matt Chandler’s Village Church and the American Left: Giving Leftist-Islamic Groups a Foothold in the Church
The conservative movement, and more importantly the conservative evangelical church, is being undermined and compromised by well-known evangelical leaders. Men, such as Matt Chandler, are accommodating and participating in interfaith dialogues with groups who share ties to radical Islam. It is no longer leftists in this country finding friends only within organizations of the religious left. Today the agenda of the American left has also found a home within the mainstream leadership of the conservative, evangelical church.
Pastoring one of the largest churches in Dallas, The Village Church, Matt Chandler currently serves as president of the ACTS 29 network, and he is also on the leadership council of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), the public-policy arm of the Southern Baptist Convention. (The current president of Ethics & Religious Liberty is Russell Moore, who has recently been embroiled in a battle over his organization’s decision to file an amicus brief on behalf of a Muslim group attempting to build a mosque in New Jersey.)
In addition, Chandler is a popular speaker at Christian conferences across the country. Therefore, his far-reaching influence among conservative Christians cannot be underestimated.
In response to the growing interfaith movement between Muslims and Christians, Shahram Hadian, an Iranian Muslim convert to Christianity says Christians are being played like a fiddle. They are either naïve or deceived. He is now a Christian pastor who recognizes the dangers of blending Islam and Christianity.
Taking a close look at the activities and the alliances being formed, it is clear that this is not about Christian evangelism. To the contrary, it is about the conservative Christian church being seduced by those who practice Islam, a false religion. While the followers of Allah join with Christians in interfaith campaigns, Christian participants continue to ignore Scriptural warning against it. Consequently, those who in the past may have been considered conservative Christian leaders are being robbed of spiritual alertness and discernment.
Furthermore, it is too serious to ignore the dangerous mixed messages Chandler’s church is currently sending, and, as we have learned from Mark Driscoll, former president of ACTS 29, there can be two sides to a ministry: one side that speaks the truth while the other side undermines and perverts it.
Therefore, as we will see in the case of Matt Chandler and the ministries he supports, two radical Islamic groups have been involved with ACTS 29 leaders, and even most recently within Chandler’s own church. Collaborating behind the scene are CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations and ISNA, the Islamic Society of North America–two groups very involved in Christian/Muslim bridge-building projects.
It is well documented that both CAIR and ISNA were founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Their objectives in America have been declared; destroy our society from within.
Per Jamie Glazov, the managing editor of FrontPage magazine, they “manipulate and exploit dialogue with us as a weapon to weaken and destroy us…a tactic found in Muslim Brotherhood documents.” Furthermore, Glazov warns, “ISNA,…was an unindicted co-conspirator in the federal prosecution of the Hamas-funding Holy Land Foundation. It was listed in a Muslim Brotherhood memorandum as one of ‘our organizations and the organizations of our friends.’ Based on its long record of advancing the Islamist worldviews, ISNA has been described as ‘one of the chief conduits through which the radical Saudi form of Islam passes into the United States.”
Therefore, it is alarming that on November 2, 2016, two pastors on staff at The Village Church, including the director of The Village Church’s SEEK THE PEACE spoke and showed their support at an event co-sponsored by ISNA, the Shoulder to Shoulder Campaign and FFEU, the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding. (Russel Simmons is the chairman of ) The meeting was held at the Islamic Center of Frisco and as stated by FFEU, participants publicly signed the Religious Freedom Pledge, which was launched in 2016 at the National Cathedral in Washington D.C.
The pledge commits leaders to “uphold and defend the freedom of conscience of all individuals by rejecting and speaking out, without reservation, against bigotry discrimination, harassment, and violence based on religion or belief.”
Furthermore, per FFEU, the endorsers of the pledge will “call on public officials to uphold these same values, particularly in this season of heightened anti-Muslim rhetoric and hate crimes.” Additionally, an Imam said that by coming together at the Fresco mosque just days before the election, the participants were making the case that we “will not allow the poisonous political discourse penetrate our communities. WHEN WE JOIN TOGETHER LIKE THIS, IT IS AN ACT OF RESISTANCE.”
Village staff pastors participating were Pastor Richard Brindley and Pastor Kyle Worley, and a Village Church layman, Jason Clarke, who is the director of SEEK THE PEACE, a group financially, supported by The Village Church. (source) Clarke shows his partnership with The Village Church.
Seek the Peace is also actively involved in the liberal politics of the resettling of Syrian refugees into the country. On January 20, 2016, a posting from “We Welcome Refugees” was on Seek the Peace’s Facebook page calling on followers to stop a bill in the Senate, which they said would “grind to a halt the resettlement of Syrian and Iraqi refugees.” Their stated position was to increase in the coming year the number of refugees to 200,000 (including 100,000 to be Syrians refugees) to be admitted to the U.S.
Then to fit the liberal narrative, The Village Church has also bought into the social justice language of the old social gospel describing Jesus as a Refugee. (source) In addition, they further this agenda by linking from their church site to the International Rescue Committee. The President and Chief Executive Officer is David Miliband. Miliband is currently running for a top United Nation’s development job and he has also been an outspoken critic of the Brexit movement, and conservative/Trump efforts to protect American borders. The following article reflects his political support of global and “international order.” It has been reported he had been tipped for a senior job in a Hillary Clinton administration if she had won the US presidential election.
The politics of International Rescue Committee is clearly fighting against conservative Republicans and the Trump administration’s temporary ban of immigrants entering the country. Consequently, one would be negligent in not asking why Matt Chandler and his church ministries are validating and accommodating groups working against the efforts of conservative Christians? (Listed overseers of the International Rescue Committee include: Madeleine Albright, Henry Kissinger, Colin Powell, Rhonda Weingarten, President of American Federation of Teachers.) (source, source)
Another internally very connected group to The Village Church is Peace Catalyst International. This group has is not only linked to online from Village Church sites but also the profile of Peace Catalyst staff member, Sarah Long, shows she is also on staff at Chandler’s Village Church.  Long’s active involvement in setting the tone of a liberal, politically correct agenda within the church is evident in her article titled Engaging Muslims.
Per her article following her mosque-speaking experience where she presented her stand against so-called discrimination, hate crimes, and oppression, Ms. Long provided clear instructions on how Christians must stand against the rise of “Islamophobia.” Usage of this liberal term by Sarah Long is telling because it is a term created by the left to silence and intimidate anyone that disagrees or interferes with their political position.
Ms. Long’s rules of engagement included “visit your local mosque,…Be sensitive to where the Christian West has failed to look like Jesus, …Talk about Jesus but carry no agenda, … Don’t criticize Muhammad, the Qur’an, or anything about the Islamic faith, …We must be more committed to our relationships than to be right. We must push back against the hateful rhetoric being spoken about all Muslims.” Then, listed under her “Recommended resources” are “Seek the Peace,” and “Peace Catalyst International.”
Matt Chandler’s alliance with Peace Catalyst presents another question regarding with whom he is willing to accommodate and associate. As we will see further on in this paper, from all outward appearances, Peace Catalyst has a track record of partnering with left leaning or any Muslim group regardless of their track record. Furthermore, the sentiment and heart of this group can be seen in the words of their organization’s president Rick Love.
Responding to concerns raised due to Love’s support of A Common Word Between Us and You, a letter from Islamic leaders to Christian leaders, he defended his position and said, I do not hesitate to refer to the God of the Bible as Allah, since Arab Christians before and after the birth of Islam use the term Allah to describe the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Moreover, he also said, “I believe that Muslims worship the true God.”
Rick Love’s faulty doctrine sums up why Muslim leaders and “Christians” were quick to join arms in fellowship. The “Christians” were not discerning and too eager to find common ground. They didn’t even get to first base before they had already weakened the Christian faith. Consequently, we now have CAIR and ISNA within the church.
This careless willingness to ignore the truth and overlook the background and character of those in our fellowship is putting us also in the path of others who are even more reckless. For example, while Rick Love sports his Christian credentials, he is also courting and validating those who do not share what he says he claims to believe.
As the president of Peace Catalyst, Rick Love is also on the advisory board of the organization Charity and Security Network, a group funding by groups such as George Soros’ Open Society, the United Muslim Relief and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Others on this advisory board include the Alliance for Peacebuilding and the ACLU. The Charity and Security Network states that since U.S. law makes it a crime to conduct almost any transaction with a terrorist group, it is restricting “peace building groups to train terrorist groups on how to use nonviolent means to address their grievances.” What are they saying? Are we to trust them to bring peace to the Middle East?
(Note: Rick Love is also a member of the Peacebuilding Global Advisory Council: )
The groundwork for much of this had been laid many years before. For example, Matt Chandler announced in an interview with John Piper on the topic of “Social Justice” that a layman in his church had started an organization called Free City International. Chandler stated the goal of this group was to serve as a HUB for the Middle Eastern culture in Dallas. (As stated on its current website, the group was founded in 2008 but the name was changed to SEEK THE PEACE.)

(In above video, hear Chandler’s remarks around minute 5:06-5:28.)
In addition to the forming of Free City International, ACTS 29 leaders already had their fingers involved in the interfaith movement. In 2010, ACTS 29 showed their willingness to dialogue with CAIR when an ACTS 29 church invited members of CAIR to a church in Renton, Washington. Reports included the participating Muslims were even allowed the call to prayer within the walls of this “Christian” church. WorldnetDaily was on top of this story with one of their headlines stating: “Christian question: ‘Interfaith dialogue’ or ‘useful idiots’? Growing trend to meet with Muslims rings bells of alarm for some.”
(Hear the audio from the Muslim/Christian dialog here)
The response from CAIR to this March 27, 2010, event can be summed up by Imam Mohamad Joban. Commenting on their success, he stated, “What happened this past Saturday night at Harambee Church was a bounty of our Lord. …It was a combination of thoughtful preparation, generous efforts by the organizers, and our trust in Allah.” (source)
The Pastor of Harambee Church at the time was Mike Gunn, co-founder of Mark Driscoll’s Seattle Mars Hill Church. Gunn has also served as the acting director of ACTS 29 International. In his lengthy rebuttal to the concerns raised regarding his accommodation of CAIR, he stated whether or not CAIR has ties to Hamas “is irrelevant.” Gunn also accused those who disagreed as showing a “…kind of legalistic nonsense.”
However, it appears the major organizer of the Harambee interfaith event was Michael Ly, co-pastor of Harambee Church. A CAIR news release also described him as “Vice president of Peace Catalyst International.” Ly’s name is also given by CAIR as a contact person for other interfaith endeavors.
Accord to a Seattle Times article 9/7/2010, Ly’s next big project was to work with CAIR to organize a dinner inviting 20 imams and other Muslim leaders, and 20 pastors and other Christian leaders “mainly from conservative evangelical churches.”
Ly may have left the Seattle area but his activities and influence have indeed expanded as he is now listed as not only the co-founder of Peace Catalyst International, but he also serves on staff.
Matt Chandler and other Evangelical leaders going down this road are not protecting the Church or the country. Their hospitality is being taken advantage of to advance a liberal, leftist cause. In the process, they are neutralizing and watering down the clarity of the gospel message and undermining efforts to keep our nation safe.
This is not the time for a lack of courage or compromising men. Yet, now, they appear to be the ones given the strongest voice and platform. We are fighting against an evangelical establishment that in many ways may be just as strong as the entrenched Republican Party establishment. Both battles will not be for the weak at heart.
As believers, it is one thing to show the love of God and share the gospel with Muslim neighbors. But, it is an entirely different business to work with and corroborate with false teachers or with those who are hell bent on the destruction of Western civilization.
Contrary to comments made by the leader of Peace Catalyst suggesting Christians and Muslims pray to the same God, he is wrong. Scripture states, “Whoever…does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house…” 2 John 9-11. In other words, hospitality and love must be discerning. Otherwise, Christians may aid those who are attempting to destroy basic truths of the faith.
I am reminded of the wisdom of a godly man who warned the church: “Follow discerning leaders.” However, it is obvious that today far too many of our “Christian leaders” are ignoring the warning.
Regardless of the motives of Matt Chandler and other like-minded men, the consequences of their leadership are the same. They have been careless in not protecting the Church and thus, the conservative evangelical church is being attacked from within.
George Soros understands the importance of using the church to implement his aggressive refugee resettlement program throughout Europe and the west. He wrote in the World Economic Forum September 28, 2015, where I found linked to from SEEK THE PEACE blog:
“Finally, to absorb and integrate more than a million asylum seekers and migrants a year, the EU needs to mobilize the private sector – NGOs, church groups, and businesses – to act as sponsors.”

February 27, 2017
Europe is no longer Europe, it is Eurabia, a colony of Islam, where the Islamic invasion does not proceed only in a physical sense, but also in a mental and cultural sense. There are moments in Life when keeping silent becomes a fault, and speaking an obligation. A civic duty, a moral challenge, a categorical imperative from which we cannot escape. —Journalist Oriana Fallaci
The wave of the Islamic revolution will soon reach the entire world. —Mahmoud Ahmadinejah, President of Iran
The very title of this article should worry all of us. The newly appointed National Security Adviser thinks the term, “radical Islamic terrorism” is not beneficial because terrorists are “un-Islamic.”
Peter R. Mansoor, a retired Army colonel who served with McMaster in Iraq during the 2007 surge of U.S. troops, said earlier that McMaster “absolutely does not view Islam as the enemy. So, I think he will present a degree of pushback against the theories being propounded in the White House that this is a clash of civilizations and needs to be treated as such.”
“McMaster, like (President) Obama, is someone who was in positions of leadership and thought the United states should not play into the jihadist propaganda that this is a religious war,” William McCants, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, told The Times. [Link], [Link]
President Trump repeatedly slammed President Obama and Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for avoiding explicitly saying "radical Islamic terrorism." Trump argued that not identifying enemies hinders the fight against terror, while Democrats argue that such words unfairly link Islam with terrorism.
Trump was right, and so was General Flynn. So, who vetted McMaster, and who is advising our President, and it’s even more worrisome that Senator McCain is thrilled with Trump’s latest choice.
McCain Lauds McMaster for NSA
When Trump selected General H.R. McMaster to be his National Security Advisor, most folks breathed a sigh of relief that CFR member, John Bolton wasn’t chosen, but that relief may have been premature.
General McMaster, like his supporters, Senator McCain, and Moscow born, Max Boot, the Jeanne J. Kirkpatrick Senior Fellow in National Security Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, are all members of the CFR.
Sen. McCain, who in Munich, stated his not-so-subtle attacks on Trump for not being harder on Russia, said that, “McMaster knows how to succeed. I give President Trump great credit for this decision, as well as his national security cabinet choices. I could not imagine a better, more capable national security team than the one we have right now.”
Max Boot stated much the same thing, “H.R. McMaster is one of the most impressive army officers of his generation—a rare combination of soldier and scholar,” said Max Boot, in an email to The Daily Beast. “But not even the most talented individual will succeed in that job as long as Bannon and Kushner continue to run their own foreign policies.”
Apparently, McMaster is not the man to guide President Trump toward better relations with Russia and less US interference in the internal affairs of other nations, as was former NSA Chief, General Michael Flynn.
In a speech delivered at the Center for Strategic and International Studies just last May, Gen. McMaster blamed the lack of sufficient US military presence overseas for what he calls a more aggressive Russian geo-strategic posturing. Take note of what the General said:
Even though it may have been apparent, at least since 2008, that Russia was changing its geo-strategic behavior and engaging in…probing, probing at the far reaches of American power, our strategic response was to accelerate our withdrawal of…army forces from Europe. And what we’re seeing now is we’ve awakened to obviously this threat from Russia who is waging limited war for limited objectives. Annexing Crimea. Invading Ukraine. At zero cost. And consolidating gains over that territory, and portraying the reaction by us and partners as escalatory. … What is required is forward deterrence. To be able to ratchet up the cost at the frontier.
The General also made the completely fallacious assertion that Russia invaded Georgia in 2008. Even the overtly anti-Russia European Union concluded that Georgia was to blame for launching an ill-advised attack on Russian peacekeeping forces that were part of an international mission in South Ossetia.
This certainly doesn’t sound like someone who is going to work to help our President improve relations with Russia. In fact, McMaster is a hawk and is all about conflict with Russia. Is it any wonder that the likes of Max Boot and John McCain are thrilled with Trump’s new NSA Chief?
McCain’s Long Feud with Trump
The Bezos owned Washington Post reported that Trump had stated, “McCain is no war hero,” but they misled the people by misstating what Trump had actually said, as clarified by Sharyl Attkisson. Nothing new here, misquotes and lies are a common thread of media since the 1964 NYTs v. Sullivan Supreme Court decision allowing media to lie with impunity. And this is the reality of what Trump calls, “fake news.”
Remember too that in September of 2016, Trump endorsed John McCain for re-election and said nice things about him.
So, what’s with the Senator from Arizona?
The Real John McCain
He served our country, and we do not know what he went through as a POW, so we honor him for his service.
However, the truth of the matter is that despite McCain’s military service, he has never been a man of or for the American people, and the “R” he wears behind his name more often than not comes across as a “D.”
In fact, last October, this alleged Republican stated that he would not be voting for Donald Trump, the nominee from his own party! So, who did he vote for…Hillary?
Trump did state that McCain graduated at the bottom of his class, and he was right. Even McCain alluded to his academic record during a commencement speech in 1997 when he stated, “This is quite an unexpected honor for a Naval Academy midshipman who graduated fifth from the bottom in the Class of ’58.” He actually graduated 790th out of 795 students.
There are countless stories on the web of McCain’s actual service and his actual imprisonment by the Vietcong, but there is one by Philip Giraldi that elucidates truth. He tells of Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Sydney Schanberg, who was intrigued by the Vietnam POW issue, and began pursuing the McCain story in the late 1980s.
Schanberg makes two key points: first that a number of American prisoners of war were left behind in Indochina in 1973 with the connivance of top levels in the U.S. government (See Henry Kissinger, Soviet Agent), and second that John McCain has worked assiduously to obstruct any efforts to open Pentagon files and follow up on leads to determine the status of the POWs and the “missing in action.”
John McCain is still a powerful voice in the Senate consistently advocating policies calling for the United States to use military force around the world. More troubling perhaps, McCain has consistently and irrationally advocated an undeviating hard line against Russia, the only country with the military capability to confront and destroy much of the United States through its nuclear armed ballistic missile forces. Perhaps this is why he is so enamored with General McMaster, and why he so hated General Flynn.
McCain’s Voting Record
Conservative Review grants McCain an “F” with a 48 percent rating, calling out McCain for an extensive 32-year entrenchment in Washington. CR Editor, Gaston Mooney, said, “McCain’s consistent support for gun control, cap and trade, amnesty, and tax increases have put him at odds with just about every coalition inside the Republican Party. McCain pandered to the right in 2008, and he did it again to be re-elected in 2016.
“There are few Republicans who have betrayed our conservative principles more than John McCain,” read the Senate Conservatives Fund letter. “McCain lost his way a long time ago.”
The Senator has also been criticized for his part in the “Gang of Eight” immigration reform and his support for amnesty, his vote for the taxpayer funded “Wall Street” bailout, his vote to fund implementation of Obamacare and criticism of efforts to halt that funding, opposition to a $1.3 trillion tax cut, support for a $600 billion tax hike, repeated votes to raise the debt limit and voting against term limits.
Mincing no words, the Senate Conservatives’ letter refers to McCain as “one of the most anti-conservative RINOs in the Senate.”
McCain’s Munich Conference Comments
What kind of American is John McCain? He’s certainly not one who represents the Constitution he took an oath to uphold.
McCain apparently had no problem bashing our President in foreign countries recently. Why didn’t McCain honor the tradition of standing for America in foreign countries? He has embarrassed our nation, and himself, just as Obama did over and over again.
Here is the transcript of McCain’s speech in Munich. Without mentioning President Trump even once, he ridiculed and slammed his policies, his presidency, and his abilities. In doing so, McCain also slammed every American who voted for Trump and wants his policies to succeed.
But what I found the most telling was his comment, “I refuse to accept the demise of our world order.” He actually mentioned “world order” five times in his short Munich speech. What world order John? The New World Order you’ve been pushing since you took office in 1987?
The Senator even stated that VP Pence, and Generals Kelly and Mattis, all disagree with Trump’s stances and policies and have also voiced those opinions at the Munich Conference.
The Senator’s latest attacks on our President are unconscionable and absolutely bordering on sedition.
McCain on Meet the Press
On Sunday, during an interview with Chuck Todd, the senator again talked about the “new world order” established after World War II, and how he is fearful it is under assault from a variety of forces. (Does this remind you of George H.W. Bush’s 1991 NWO speech?)
He also claimed to be worried about presidential advisor Steve Bannon’s role on the National Security Council. Then he attacked Trump by saying, “A free press is vital and suppressing a free press is “how dictators get started.”
His comments were ridiculous. My friend Vin Sabella said this:
First, he claimed that the president was destroying freedom of the press. Then he said that’s what all dictators do to gain power. Then he said he didn’t mean that Trump was trying to be a dictator.

And, if that’s true, Senator, why did you bring up the fact that you thought Trump was muzzling the press and say that that is what dictators do in the same breath? I think the answer is obvious. You wanted to call Trump a potential dictator and be able to weasel your way out of having done so if you were called on it.
As Rand Paul said, McCain is deliberately blowing Trump’s criticism of the press out of proportion. Every president has criticized the press throughout history. But, as Paul says, there is a big difference between criticizing the press and passing a law or issuing an executive order to suppress the press. Trump has obviously done neither.
MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski, (daughter of Zbignew Brzezinski) recently made it clear that she believes it is the media’s job to control what people think. Really Mika? One need only watch Chris Cuomo or Van Jones to understand their propaganda and socialist/communist allegiances.
Bannon’s NSC Status
The question arises, could we lose another valuable man in the National Security Council? Fox News reported the following:
White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Tuesday that if President Donald Trump’s newly appointed national security adviser wanted to remove chief strategist Steve Bannon from the National Security Council’s principals committee, the president would “take that under serious consideration.”
“The president has made clear to him he’s got full authority to structure the national security team the way he wants,” Spicer said of Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, whom Trump appointed last Monday as his new NSA chief. Spicer made the remarks in the daily White House press briefing.
 Does this worry me? You bet it does. Bannon is one of the most trusted insiders and as such, he should remain exactly where he is for our President.

Donald J. Trump is in new waters, and he is learning as he goes. He wants to keep his promises to the American people. He’s the boss, and his employees should follow his lead.
Our President has a huge job, and he is wrestling against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual wickedness in high places. Pray for him, and pray for our country.

 ou can see McMaster say this beginning at the four-minute mark: 

“We are engaged today, as General George C. Marshall’s generation was
 engaged, against enemies who pose a great threat to all civilized 
peoples. As our World War II generation defeated Nazi Fascism and 
Japanese imperialism, and as later generations defeated Communist 
totalitarianism, we will defeat today’s enemies, including terrorist 
organizations like Daesh, who cynically use a perverted interpretation 
of religion to incite hatred and justify horrific cruelty against 
innocents.” — Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster, speech to Virginia Military 
Institute, Center for Leadership and Excellence, November 21, 2016

In this video
 also, from May 2016, McMaster says this same thing. At 14:43, McMaster 
refers to “groups like ISIL, who use this irreligious ideology, this 
perverted interpretation of religion to justify violence. They depend on
 ignorance, and the ability to recruit vulnerable segments of 
populations  to foment hatred, and then use that hatred to justify 
violence against innocents.” 

This could be Barack Obama or John Kerry speaking.

As I explained here,
 this was during the Obama regime, when that was the official policy of 
the U.S. government, but President Trump has repeatedly criticized his 
predecessor (and his 2016 election opponent) for not being willing to 
call the problem of jihad terror by its right name. Since he has become 
President, he has repeatedly reiterated his determination to eradicate 
“radical Islamic terrorism.” If McMaster genuinely holds the view that 
the Islamic State is not Islamic, then he is a disastrous pick as 
National Security Adviser, and will continue the willful ignorance of 
the Obama administration, hamstringing efforts to understand, and 
counter effectively, the motives and goals of the enemy.
