READ the memo on globalism and Islamic infiltration that led McMaster to
fire its author from NSC

NSC staffer Rich Higgins wrote the memo below. When he read it, National
Security Advisor H. R. McMaster fired him. McMaster should be questioned
about this. Did he think he memo was false? Is he part of those trying to
subvert Trump’s pro-American agenda? Certainly his many statements denying
the Islamic character of Islamic terrorism would suggest so. McMaster must
be fired if Trump is going to have any chance of pursuing his agenda.

*POTUS & POLITICAL WARFARE*
*May 2017*

*BACKGROUND.* The Trump administration is suffering under withering
information campaigns designed to first undermine, then de legitimize and
ultimately remove the President. Possibly confusing these attacks with an
elevated interplay of otherwise normal D.C. partisan infighting and
adversarial media relations, the White House response to these campaigns
reflects a political advocacy mindset that it is intensely reactive,
severely under-inclusive and dangerously inadequate to the threat. If
action is not taken to re-scope and respond to these hostile campaigns very
soon, the administration risks implosion and subsequent early departure
from the White House.

This is not politics as usual but rather political warfare at an
unprecedented level that is openly engaged in the direct targeting of a
seated president through manipulation of the news cycle. It must be
recognized on its own terms so that immediate action can be taken. At its
core, these campaigns run on multiple lines of effort, serve as the
non-violent line of effort of a wider movement, and execute political
warfare agendas that reflect cultural Marxist outcomes. The campaigns
operate through narratives.

Because the hard left is aligned with lslamist organizations at local (ANTI
FA working with Muslim Brotherhood doing business as MSA and CAIR),
national (ACLU and BLM working with CAIR and MPAC) and international levels
(OIC working with OSCE and the UN), recognition must given to the fact that
they seamlessly interoperate at the narrative level as well. In candidate
Trump, the opposition saw a threat to the “politically correct” enforcement
narratives they’ve meticulously laid in over the past few decades.

In President Trump, they see a latent threat to continue that effort to
ruinous effect and their retaliatory response reflects this fear.

*INTRODUCTION.*

Responding to relentless personal assaults on his character, candidate
Trump identified the players and the strategy:

• “The establishment and their media enablers will control over this nation
through means that are very well known. Anyone who challenges their control
is deemed a sexist, a racist, a xenophobe, and morally deformed.” –
President Trump, Oct 2016

Culturally conditioned to limit responses to such attacks as yet another
round in the on-going drone from diversity and multicultural malcontents,
these broadsides are discounted as political correctness run amuck.
However, political correctness is a weapon against reason and critical
thinking. This weapon functions as the enforcement mechanism of diversity
narratives that seek to implement cultural Marxism.

Candidate Trump’s rhetoric in the campaign not only cut through the Marxist
narrative, he did so in ways that were viscerally comprehensible to a
voting bloc that then made candidate Trump the president; making that bloc
self-aware in the process. President Trump is either the candidate he ran
as, or he is nothing.

Recognizing in candidate Trump an existential threat to cultural Marxist
memes that dominate the prevailing cultural narrative, those that benefit
recognize the threat he poses and seek his destruction. For this cabal,
Trump must be destroyed. Far from politics as usual, this is a political
warfare effort that seeks the destruction of a sitting president. Since
Trump took office, the situation has intensified to crisis level
proportions. For those engaged in the effort, especially those from within
the “deep state” or permanent government apparatus, this raises clear Title
18 (legal) concerns.

*DISCUSSION.*

*The Opposition. *While opposition to President Trump manifests itself
through political warfare memes centered on cultural Marxist narratives,
this hardly means that opposition is limited to Marxists as conventionally
understood. Having become the dominant cultural meme, some benefit from it
while others are captured by it; including “deep state” actors, globalists,
bankers, lslamists, and establishment Republicans. Through the campaign,
candidate Trump tapped into a deep vein of concern among many citizens that
America is at risk and is slipping away. Globalists and lslamists recognize
that for their visions to succeed, America, both as an ideal and as a
national and political identity, must be destroyed.

Atomization of society must also occur at the individual level; with
attacks directed against all levels of group and personal identity. Hence
the sexism, racism and xenophobia memes. As a Judea-Christian culture,
forced inclusion of post-modern notions of tolerance is designed to induce
nihilistic contradictions that reduce all thought, all faith, all loyalties
to meaninglessness. Group rights based on sex or ethnicity are a direct
assault on the very idea of individual human rights and natural law around
which the Constitution was framed. “Transgender acceptance” memes attack at
the most basic level by denying a person the right to declare the
biological fact of one’s sex. When a population has 2 + 2 = 5 imposed on
it, there are many that benefit:

• *Mainstream Media* – The principle mechanism for implementing narratives.

• *The Academy* – Academia has served as a principle counter-state node for
some time and remains a key conduit for creating future adherents to
cultural Marxist narratives and their derivative worldview.

• *The Deep State* – The successful outcome of cultural Marxism is a
bureaucratic state beholden to no one, certainly not the American people.
With no rule of law considerations outside those that further deep state
power, the deep state truly becomes, as Hegel advocated, god bestriding the
earth.

• *Global Corporatists & Bankers* – Exploitation of populations, unfettered
by national protections and notions of personal morality and piety.

• *Democratic Leadership* – The democratic leadership has been a
counter-state enabler that executes, sustains, and protects cultural
Marxist programs of action and facilitates the relentless expansion of the
deep state.

• *Republican Leadership* – More afraid of being accused of being called a
racist, sexist, homophobe or lslamophobe than of failing to enforce their
oaths to “support and defend the Constitution,” the Republican
Establishment accepts and enforces cultural Marxist memes within its own
sphere of operations. In doing so, knowingly or not, it becomes an agent of
that. These “conservatives” become increasingly indistinguishable from
their democratic counterparts save that they misrepresent themselves to
their constituents. Lacking the discernment to recognize their situation,
they will work with globalists, corporatists, and the international
financial interests and will likewise service the deep state. These
establishment Republicans are the hard left’s designated defeat mechanism
in the destruction of the old regime as well as the American ideal. [1]
Because candidate Trump publicly exposed them for their duplicitous
activities, they are at risk as long as Trump can turn on them and are,
therefore, bitter foes. Candidate Trump’s success remains an ongoing
existential threat to establishment Republicans.

• *lslamists* – Islamists ally with cultural Marxist because, as far back
as the 1980s, they properly assessed that the hard left has a strong chance
of reducing Western civilization to its benefit. Having co-opted
post-modern narratives as critical points, Isla mists deploy these
narrative to strategically blind and then control US decision makers. This
is by design and purposeful. “By their own hands!” has been the declared
strategy of the Muslim Brotherhood since 1991. This strategy seeks to
divide American society against itself with the forced imposition of
Islamist objectives on one half of American society by the other half. Once
a society has been effectively atomized, the population will have lost its
faith in the old order, detest those who reduced it, and divide along the
lines of narrative adherence. This is the intended outcome of hostile
information cum political warfare campaigns and today we see their effects
on American society.

*Complicating the current situation, many close to the president have
pushed him off his message when he was candidate Trump thus alienating him
from his base thereby isolating him in the process. When President Trump is
not candidate Trump, he becomes dangerously exposed. While the base that
elected candidate Trump identified with his vision, they are only Trump’s
insofar as he holds to the vision that made him president.*

*Political Warfare Attacks – A Primer*. As used here, “political warfare”
does not concern activities associated with the American political process
but rather *exclusively* refers to political warfare as understood by the
Maoist Insurgency model. [2] Political warfare is one of the five
components of a Maoist insurgency. Maoist methodologies employ synchronized
violent and non-violent actions that focus on mobilization of individuals
and groups to action. This approach envisions the direct use of non-violent
operational arts and tactics as elements of combat power. In Maoist
insurgencies, the formation of a counter-state is essential to seizing
state power. Functioning as a hostile competing state acting within an
existing state, it has an alternate infrastructure. Political warfare
operates as one of the activities of the “counter-state” and is primarily
focused on the resourcing and mobilization of the counter state or the
exhaustion and demobilization of the targeted political movement. Political
warfare methods can be implemented at strategic, operational, or tactical
levels of operation.

Political warfare is warfare. Strategic information campaigns designed to
delegitimize through disinformation arise out of non-violent lines of
effort in political warfare regimes. They principally operate through
narratives. Because the left is aligned with lslamist organizations at
local, national and international levels, recognition should be given to
the fact that they seamlessly interoperate through coordinated synchronized
interactive narratives.

*Cultural Marxism – A Primer*. While the attacks on President Trump arise
out of political warfare considerations based on non-kinetic lines of
effort (as discussed below), they operate in a battle-space prepared,
informed and conditioned by cultural Marxist drivers. In practical terms,
the political warfare assault on President Trump cannot be separated from
the cultural Marxist narratives that drive them. From an operational
preparation of the environment perspective, President Trump is operating in
a battle-space that reflects the left’s vision.

As used in this discussion, cultural Marxism relates to programs and
activities that arise out of Gramsci Marxism, Fabian Socialism and most
directly from the Frankfurt School. The Frankfurt strategy deconstructs
societies through attacks on culture by imposing a dialectic that forces
unresolvable contradictions under the rubric of critical theory. The result
is induced nihilism, a belief in everything that is actually the belief in
nothing.

That post-modern (diversity/multiculturalism) narratives seeks to implement
cultural Marxist objectives can be demonstrated by reference to founding
Frankfurt School theorist Herbert Marcuse’s repurposing of the term
tolerance. In a 1965 *paper*, Marcuse defined tolerance as intolerance;
said it can be implemented through undemocratic means to stop chauvinism
(xenophobia), racism, discrimination; and should be extended to the left
while denied to the right:

• “The realization of the objective of tolerance would call for intolerance
toward prevailing policies, attitudes, opinions, and the extension of
tolerance to policies, attitudes, and opinions which are outlawed or
suppressed.”

• “Surely, no government can be expected to foster its own subversion, but
in a democracy such a right is vested in the people (i.e. in the majority
of the people). This means that the ways should not be blocked on which a
subversive majority could develop, and if they are blocked by organized
repression and indoctrination, their reopening may require apparently
undemocratic means. They would include the withdrawal of toleration of
speech and assembly from groups and movements which promote aggressive
policies, armament, chauvinism, discrimination on the grounds of race and
religion, or which oppose the extension of public services, social
security, medical care, etc.” (8-9)

• “Liberating tolerance, then, would mean intolerance against movements
from the Right and toleration of movements from the Left. As to the scope
of this tolerance and intolerance: … it would extend to the stage of action
as well as of discussion and propaganda, of deed as well as of word.” (12)

It is through such post-modern constructs that interoperable narratives are
established among various left-wing groups as well as between them and Isla
mist groups at all levels. For example, from the 2001 Conference of Foreign
Ministers at Bamako, Mali, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC)
declared its commitment to fight racism and xenophobia and then declared
lslamophobia a “contemporary form of racism”:

• In this context, the World Conference urges all states … take all
necessary measures to combat hatred, discrimination, intolerance and acts
of violence, intimidation and coercion motivated by racism, racial
discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance particularly against
Islam

• Racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance which
display an increasing trend, in their most subtle and contemporary forms,
constitute a violation of human rights. 3. Contemporary forms of racism are
based on discrimination and disparagement on a cultural, rather than
biological basis. In this content, the increasing trend of lslamophobia, as
a distinct form of xenophobia in non-Muslim societies is very alarming.

That the OIC made these claims as part of its planned inputs to the United
Nation’s “*Third World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination,
Xenophobia and Related Intolerance*” further demonstrates the coordinated
and interoperable nature of these narratives at international levels in
international forums.

As cultural Marxist narratives intensify, they are to be further
operationalized in the form of hate speech narratives. Hate speech
narratives are non-random, coordinated, and fully interoperable escalations
of cultural Marxist memes. Key international players include the European
Union, the UN, and the OSCE, the OIC and the International Muslim
Brotherhood. Hate speech memes are structured, coordinated, and implemented
through these same international forums. They involve close coordination
with media and social media and include the Countering Violent Extremism
(CVE) narratives. David Shipler’s book *Freedom of Speech* provides a road
map for how hate speech narratives are to be structured, deployed and
enforced.

*Battlespace*. These attack narratives are pervasive, full spectrum and
institutionalized at all levels. They operate in social media, television,
the 24-hour news cycle in all media, and are entrenched at the upper levels
of the bureaucracies and within the foreign policy establishment. They
inform the entertainment industry from late night monologues, to situation
comedies, to television series memes, to movie themes. The effort required
to direct this capacity at President Trump is little more than a
programming decision to do so. The cultural Marxist narrative is fully
deployed, pervasive, full spectrum and ongoing. Regarding the president,
attacks have become a relentless 24/7 effort.

While there is certainly a Marxist agenda and even lslamist motivations
that must be seriously addressed in their own right, these motivations
alone seem inadequate to explain the scope and magnitude of the effort
directed against the president. The economic drivers behind the Marxist and
Islamist ideologues are enormously influential and seek to leverage these
ideological movements for their own self interests. While beyond the actual
scope of this document, the benefactors of these political movements
include; Urban Real Estate who depend greatly on immigrant tenants,
International Banking who seeks to maintain US debtor status so as to
control the application of American power, and elements of the business
sector that depend upon immigrant labor or government infrastructure. The
overall objective of these economic forces is the forced urbanization of
the populace, thereby necessitating a larger, more powerful government. In
summary, this is a form of population control by certain business cartels
in league with cultural Marxists/corporatists/lslamists who will leverage
Islamic terrorism threats to justify the creation of a police state.

*Adversary Campaign Plan*. Political Warfare has been described as
“propaganda in battledress.” [3] The effort directed at President Trump is
executed along one overt, as well as two covert, lines of effort:

• The overt line of effort is *PUBLICITY*. Publicity is the straightforward
projection of a case that builds a picture in the audience’s mind designed
to garner support. It is facts without context and information the
adversary wants the audience to possess that creates an impression and sets
conditions. It seeks to establish good will and receptiveness to additional
inputs.

• There are two covert lines of effort: *PROPOGANDA* [sic] and
*INFILTRATION/SUBVERSION*.

o *Propaganda* is the deliberate direction, even manipulation, of
information to secure a definite outcome. It is an attempt to direct the
thinking of the recipient, without his conscious collaboration, into
predetermined channels that are established in the Publicity line of
effort. It is the unwitting conditioning of the recipient by devious
methods with an ulterior motive that seeks to move them incrementally over
time into greater belief and acceptance of message transmitted in the
Publicity line of effort.

o *Infiltration and subversion* operate internal to the targeted
organization in order to inform, target, coordinate, and amplify the
effects of the publicity and propaganda. Both operate to gather
intelligence, obstruct legitimate courses of action, provide inside
information, and leak sensitive information that undermines the leadership
and suppresses the morale of friendly elements.

o *Infiltration* of political and social groups within a target state is
done for the purpose of extending counter-state influence and control. The
endgame is concealed and may involve illicit activities.

o *Subversion* undermines or detaches the loyalties of significant
political and social groups within the target state and transfers political
and/or ideological loyalties to the counter-state. As the counter-state
forms, a counter-elite of influential individual and key leaders within the
target state will later facilitate the legitimacy and permanency of the new
regime.

Political warfare employs both publicity and propaganda. It recognizes no
intrinsic virtue in the news but rather envisions it as a mechanism to
exploit and build up support. From a political warfare perspective, control
of the news cycle is the most potent means of attracting and building up a
favorable audience. As it relates to the news cycle, publicity and
propaganda can be merged to form a “pseudo-publicity” that is presented as
news in furtherance of sustaining pseudo-realities maintained by cultural
Marxist memes. Pseudo-publicity treatment of President Trump dominates the
news cycle. The current campaign against President Trump operates in the
following manner:

*The Meta Narrative*. Meta narratives seeks [sic] to delegitimize President
Trump, his administration, and the vision of America he projected as a
candidate. With cultural Marxist memes serving as the backdrop, President
Trump is to be relentlessly characterized as unfit through the use of
supporting narratives acting to move unwitting populations to belief in the
meta narrative. Hence:

• “President Trump is illegitimate”

• “President Trump is corrupt”

• “President Trump is dishonest”

Note that the twitter accounts and mainstream media personalities pushing
this narrative have seen their audience numbers rise greatly in the past 6
months. This is a direct result of the supporting and backdrop narratives
channeling individuals to this meta-narrative.

*Supporting Narratives*. Meta-narratives are supported by an ongoing series
supporting-narratives that can be swapped out as circumstances warrant. It
is important to recognize that these stories do not have to be true, valid
or accurate to serve their purpose. Over time, deserved or not, the
cumulative effect of these supporting narratives will result in a Trump
fatigue. From a political warfare perspective, President Trump’s inability
to meet this challenge will cast him as a weak failed leader. The current
list of supporting narratives include:

• “Russia hacked the election” – illegitimate

• “Obstruction of Justice” – corrupt

• “Hiding Collusion” – dishonest

• “Putin Puppet” – treasonous

*Backdrop Narratives*. The backdrop to the meta and supporting narratives
are cultural Marxist memes designed to sustain a general sense of loathing
of President Trump and the America that elected him. Hence:

• “[*meta*] President Trump is illegitimate, [*supporting*] he was elected
because of Russian hacking, [*backdrop*] and besides, he a racist, sexist
xenophobe.”

Adversaries utilize these interlocking narratives as a defensive political
and information warfare screen that silences critics and smears supporters
of President Trump. When people in the media question the behavior, actions
and decisions of the Trump Administration’s opponents, they are immediately
said to be “working for the Russians” or “supporting Russian propaganda.”
Individual Americans who support the President are deemed “deplorable” and
“racist.”

*End State*. Attacks on President Trump are not just about destroying him,
but also about *destroying the vision of America that lead *[sic]* to his
election*. Those individuals and groups seeking the destruction of
President Trump actually seek to suffocate the vision of America that made
him president. Hence, the end state is not just a delegitimized,
destabilized, immobilized and possibly destroyed presidency; but also *a
demoralized movement composed of a large enough bloc to elect a president
that subsequently become self-aware of its own disenfranchisement*.

*CONCLUSION.*

The recent turn of events give rise to the observation that the defense of
President Trump is the defense of America. In the same way President
Lincoln was surrounded by political opposition both inside and outside of
his wire, in both overt and covert forms, so too is President Trump. Had
Lincoln failed, so too would have the Republic. The administration has been
maneuvered into a constant back-pedal by relentless political warfare
attacks structured to force him to assume a reactive posture that assures
inadequate responses. The president can either drive or be driven by
events; it’s time for him to drive them.
