|Jihad Watch : This is an extremely strange story, but it just may suggest that
there remains someone in the Trump administration who remains true to
Trump’s campaign promises about reforming the U.S. response to the jihad
threat. Or it may not. With the chaotic and rudderless Trump
administration, it’s virtually impossible to tell.
“Administration Sources: Creepy Tweet Was a Coded Message to General McMaster About Leakers,” by David Steinberg, PJ Media, September 6, 2017: A story fantastically strange, dancing between lowbrow and stupid, and it matters: this masterwork of a news
item belongs in a time capsule, one day making the case to our
descendants that we were, at least, blessed to live in interesting
times. Because this sort of thing happens in 2017, an alt-right crank who hasn’t won anyone’s trust beyond that of his loyal travelers seems to have become the white-whale obsession of National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster.
Also, a multi-national public
relations campaign which occupied much of August — a campaign seemingly
intended to repair General McMaster’s reputation with the President of
the United States, to sully the reputation of Trump loyalists whom
McMaster had removed from the National Security Council, and to drive
out Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka, all in one shot — may have been unintentionally destroyed by said alt-Right crank tweeting the words …
Mike Cernovich posted this
tweet on August 11. To an objective observer, that’s inscrutable
nonsense. And — also objectively — it’s creepy. But when considered with its actual context, and pivotally, its timing,
that rational observer should be driven to conclude that, ahem, the
“McMaster what’s your spirit animal” tweet is a political thunderbolt
with ramifications much beyond what Cernovich appears to have intended.
Sources within the Trump Administration claim that the“spirit animal” tweet isa reference to a small meeting that McMaster and select others within the National Security Council heldin the days prior to August 11.
At that meeting, attendees reportedly joked about each other’s “spirit animals.”
Indeed, as of this writing, I can neither confirm nor deny that a
prominent member of the NSC is imbued with the soul of a platypus.
Since August 11, Cernovich has
offered other information that also points to him having sourcing within
the NSC. However, the “spirit animal” tweet reportedly represented a
more concerning breach. Yet even so, the breach itself is of less
evident concern to McMaster and his supporters than is the fact of its
August 11 publication.
Because if Cernovich still had a source leaking to him on that date or in the days immediately prior, then the tweet necessarily
deconstructs much of the past month’s administration-orchestrated media
defense of General McMaster’s personnel decisions.
In early August, General McMaster came under enormous pressure — spearheaded by the Jerusalem Post’s Caroline Glick and the Zionist Organization of America’s Morton Klein
— for having seemingly purged the NSC of all members who aligned with
candidate Trump’s Mideast policy. “Radical Islamic terror” and the
destruction of the Iran nuclear deal was out; the continuance of
Obama-era policies behind the “Arab Spring” catastrophe had apparently
McMaster disagrees and actively undermines Trump’s agenda on just about every salient issue on his agenda. He fires all of Trump’s loyalists and replaces them with Trump’s opponents, like Kris Bauman, an Israel hater and Hamas supporter who McMaster hired to work on the Israel-Palestinian desk.

He allows anti-Israel,
pro-Muslim Brotherhood, pro-Iran Obama people like Robert Malley to walk
around the NSC and tell people what to do and think. He has
left Ben (reporters know nothing about foreign policy and I lied to sell
them the Iran deal) Rhodes’ and Valerie Jarrett’s people in place.
