Sebastian Gorka has quit his role as White House adviser to President Trump. I infer that Chief of Staff, General Kelly, was keeping Gorka away from the president. Gorka’s sin in the eyes of leftists is that he recognizes that ALL Muslims are jihadists, not just the few that actually mow down people, explode bombs, stab, and shoot.
Gorka vows to defend MAGA, but from outside the White House.
President Trump’s adviser Sebastian Gorka has resigned because his political rivals were “ascendant within the White House” according to a report.
The controversial aide is leaving his post as deputy assistant to the President, and made reference to the departure of fellow Breitbart News alum Steve Bannon, according to The Federalist.
“Regrettably, outside of yourself, the individuals who most embodied and represented the policies that will ‘Make America Great Again,’ have been internally countered, systematically removed, or undermined in recent months,” Gorka reportedly said in a letter to Trump.
He added that “given recent events, it is clear to me that forces that do not support the MAGA promise are – for now – ascendant within the White House,” he said.
Many had suspected that Gorka would be the next person thrown from the whirlwind of the White House after the departure of Bannon, who he previously worked for as national security editor at Breitbart.
News of Bannon’s departure came last week, as the Trump administration reeled from the President’s tepid response to white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Va.
More from HuffPo, but strip away the obvious left wing slander against Gorka as you read. He’s not some fringe kook or nut job, as implied by HuffPo.
Gorka’s official title at the White House was deputy assistant to the president, but it was never clear what his actual duties entailed. He regularly appeared on television as a vociferous defender of Trump’s national security agenda and worldview. But he reportedly wasn’t able to get security clearance that would have allowed him to sit in on the most high-level national security meetings or read classified information.
Gorka was closely aligned with Steve Bannon, who served as Trump’s chief strategist until he left the administration in August. Like Bannon, Gorka expressed a dark view of Islam. The FBI used to employ Gorka to teach courses on terrorism, but the Daily Beast reported that the agency stopped working with him after he told students that all Muslims adhere to Sharia law and will eventually be radicalized.
Before joining the White House, Gorka was an obscure far-right fringe character. He promoted himself as an authority on counterterrorism, but national security experts mocked his credentials and refuted his characterization of Islam as a path toward violent radicalism. Most terrorism experts and academic say terrorists become radicalized through a combination of factors ― poverty, poor governance, lack of opportunity, foreign intervention and religious ideology, for example ― but Gorka argues that Islam is the driving force. He does not speak Arabic and has spent little time in the Middle East.
Gorka joined the Trump campaign in 2015 as a paid adviser. Since then, he has celebrated Trump’s frequent warnings about the threat of “radical Islamic terrorism” and accused the Obama administration of being hamstrung by political correctness. When Trump won the election last year, Gorka told Fox News that “the alpha males are back.”
I don’t have TV and if I did I wouldn’t watch the news there anyway. The last time I heard Gorka was on Sean Hannity’s radio program where he was stating the obvious about Islam, none of it fitting in with the “religion of peace” junk.
Trump helped make him famous. As long as he keeps speaking the truth, let’s rally behind him to make sure that his warnings about the dangers of Muslims are heard.
