The resignation of Dr. Sebastian Gorka is neither a political “multi-dimensional chess” move nor tidy. The former gives too much credit where none is due, while the latter does not appropriately reflect the carnage of an internal political war for a controlling interest of the Executive branch.
It is the result of a street fight to control the direction of the Oval Office between those who stand for the “MAGA Doctrine” of American values and American exceptionalism and the those who detest it, instead wanting to implement a socially engineered, fake Socialist utopia while apologizing for the system and values that made our nation great.
It is a consequence of the war being waged against the true Conservatives by the Globalists and “policy people” frantic to chaotically push our nation further into a Socialist collective – a fake utopia embraced by the most delusional Progressive supporters of both Clinton and Sanders – who still cannot seem to accept that the people have rejexcted them and their flawed policies.
We must not listen to the “Fake News Industrial Complex,” a description first used publicly by Dr. Gorka and instead, pay attention to the carefully chosen words of Dr. Gorka himself:
“[G]iven recent events, it is clear to me that forces that do not support the MAGA promise are – for now – ascendant within the White House,” Gorka wrote in his resignation letter. “As a result, the best and most effective way I can support you, Mr. President, is from outside the People’s House.”
This is precisely what the Washington elitists and members of the “Fake News Industrial Complex” and “Destroy Trump Media” fear the most.
Consider the difference between President Donald Trump’s speeches regarding the U.S. policy on Afghanistan that he delivered on Monday, August 21, 2017 and the rousing speech he gave the next day to throngs of supporters in Phoenix, Arizona.
Conspicuously absent from the Afghanistan speech was the phrase “radical Islam,” “Islamic terrorism” or any other such variations in the context of the enemies we are fighting. The purposeful omission appeared to calm, albeit briefly, the “Fake News Industrial Complex” and the Deep State neocons like a dose of valium to a frenzied mental patient.
Perhaps this scripted text about policy solidified Dr. Gorka’s decision to step aside, which was anticipated following the mutually agreed departure of Steve Bannon from the roster of internal West Wing influence.
The next day, President Trump used Phoenix to reconnect with and re-energize his base. Outside of the Washington swamp, President Trump invoked the spirit of Ronald Reagan in a stirring speech that advanced the tenets of his MAGA platform: rebuild the economy, defend our country, defeat ISIS and build the wall.
Once again, the “Fake News Industrial Complex” became seriously apoplectic, traumatized by the very thought of the unapologetic presentation of American exceptionalism, the embodiment of Judeo-Christian values and a true Jacksonian policy agenda over a failed Eurocentric Globalist nightmare.
Choking on their own legacy of losses, they were unable to admit the gains already made in a mere 200 days of Donald Trump as President. The revitalization of NATO, the actual victories against ISIS, the unwavering alliance with Israel, and slowing illegal immigration by 73% since Donald Trump became President are like daylight to the vampires of the “Destroy Trump Media.”
Dr. Sebastian Gorka, alone or concurrent with Steve Bannon and other such influencers of policy and direction will undoubtedly serve a great purpose for America and all true Conservatives, even outside of the West Wing. Perhaps even more effectively.
