Now, basically, all of these political appointee ins and outs I pay almost no attention to. There are always going to be shufflings and kicking outs of people. But my view of this is that whatever the NSC (National Security Council) is, and has become, it needed to be changed, reined in, deconstructed. I see this as more than just an “internal WH shakeup”. There’s some de-constructing going on…
I found the 25 minute video (which I placed at the end of this post) very helpful in seeing this as part of the larger picture of “Deconstructing THE USA CORP” (hence the title prelude I used).
The original of the article was a ZeroHedge. I found it easier to read the Millennium Report version. .Originally this was found at Aim4Truth.org (and thanks to AF97 for pointing this one out).
I strongly suggest watching the video at the end.
“According to Reuters, Bannon’s removal from the NSC was seen as a boost to national security adviser [Lt. Gen.] H.R. McMaster, who officials said has struggled to work together with Bannon.
“Bannon said in a statement: “Susan Rice operationalized the NSC during the last administration. I was put on to ensure that it was de-operationalized. General McMaster has returned the NSC to its proper function.”

Steve Bannon Removed From Trump’s National Security Council
In what the biggest shake-up at the White House since Mike Flynn resigned in February, moments ago Bloomberg reported that President Trump has reorganized his National Security Council on Wednesday, removing his chief strategist, Stephen Bannon as well as downgrading the role of his Homeland Security Adviser, Tom Bossert, while elevating national intelligence director, Dan Coats, and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Marine Corps General Joseph Dunford, who will again be “regular attendees” of the NSC’s principals committee.
According to Reuters, Bannon’s removal from the NSC was seen as a boost to national security adviser H.R. McMaster, who officials said has struggled to work together with Bannon.
Wednesday’s change means Mr. Bannon is no longer part of the NSC. He is still permitted to attend such meetings but won’t automatically be invited to each one.
The WSJ adds that “the decision to boot Bannon was made by Trump’s new national security adviser, Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster” while another senior administration official said Mr. Trump “signed off on all the changes.”
Bannon said in a statement: “Susan Rice operationalized the NSC during the last administration. I was put on to ensure that it was de-operationalized. General McMaster has returned the NSC to its proper function.”
