President Trump slams the book down on calumny campaign against Dr. Gorka

There's a word for what President Trump reportedly did, stepping in to save the job of his falsely maligned top counterterrorism adviser, Sebastian Gorka: leadership.

According to a report in the left-wing Daily Beast:

When the White House backed off its efforts to dump Sebastian Gorka on another federal agency, the controversial counterterrorism advisor had the president himself to thank, The Daily Beast has learned.

After news emerged last week that the Trump administration was setting the stage to move the British-born national security aide out of the White House, President Donald Trump and his chief strategist Stephen Bannon “personally intervened” to put a halt to Gorka’s White House eviction, two senior administration sources said.

This is what we voted for.  If the Beast is right, it means that the old Trump is finally back.  And after an infuriating period where the Deep State, the neo-cons, and the quasi-Democrats seemed to be running the show, it portends the return of a take-charge presidency.

Dr. Sebastian Gorka is a first-rate military strategist, scholar, and thinker whose work already has impressed President Trump enough to invite him to work in the White House.  Even more noteworthy, he is the most gaffe-free spokesman on the entire Trump team, an unexpected gift to the Trump administration, given that many of his good people have been torn apart by the wolf packs of the press over minor slip-ups.  While admittedly, his job isn't as tough as that of Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who must face down the leftist mainstream media every day, Gorka hasn't made any mistakes in his appearances on Fox News and other networks.  In fact, on critical national security matters, he articulates the president's moderate, pragmatic, results-oriented vision in foreign policy extremely well.  That's an incalculable benefit, and any good leader would not want to lose a team member who could deliver what other team members have otherwise had trouble doing.

But it's about more than pragmatics.  It's actually the right thing to do.  Gorka has been subject to a gauntlet of lies falsely accusing him of bad scholarship, closet Nazi ties, and an anti-Semitic past, all of which is totally without merit.  In the Alinskyite playbook, it's the repetitions of a Big Lie to turn it into "the truth."  Most people who get into controversies have some sort of role in provoking their own troubles, but in Gorka's case, he hasn't. The reality is, the attacks have been unprovoked and he's completely innocent. This explains why none of the charges have stuck, and why they have come at him from so many strange, unrelated angles.

It's all the work of two bitter weasels left over from the previous administration: former deputy national security adviser (and creative writing major) Ben Rhodes and Vice President Joe Biden's former national security adviser Colin Kahl, both of whom have a documented dead-ender campaign on Twitter to smear Gorka, using the left-wing press, academic scream protesters, and slimy little leaks to the mainstream press as their weapons.  They have been at it for months, beavering away, and convinced they would succeed because they have gotten away with it.

Trump (and his savvy adviser Steve Bannon) saw right through it and put their feet down when the other White House minions decided that the controversy was too much, the cocktail party invitations would dry up, the heat in the kitchen was too hot, and...the only solution was, Gorka would have to go.  Trump said no.

Trump apparently doesn't respond to that kind of bedwetting pressure.  He stood by a good man, and an innocent one, and in this decision, he showed what he is made of.  He also made his critics look stupid. This bodes well for this administration.  The swamp is going to be drained.  The Deep State hasn't truly taken over yet.  A leader has.

Thank you, President Trump.
