Interesting article on Steve Bannon, one of the voices competing for the President's sense of direction, if you can wade through the bias of the writier.

Bannon is partly right in his assessment of trade and China.  (More so than the BS over NAFTA IMHO)  WHy do we allow them to steal our intellectual properties?  The President's willingness to take a stronger stance with China and his threat to go further is empowering the US in negotiations over N.K. for one thing.

Reading two sides of this story and with VDH on his side, I will just keep an open mind about the value of this guy.  Here is the Jerusalem Post with military opinion that McMaster is a friend to Israel:  http://www.jpost.com/American-Politics/Former-top-Israeli-security-officers-McMaster-is-a-friend-to-Israel-502294

And I notice a Powerline post taking a second look at what was written previously:

"I continue to have reservations about him. However, I now believe that one of my posts on the subject was unfair and needs to be revisited. "  http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2017/08/mcmasters-obama-holdovers-a-second-look.php

If nothing else I think we can assume he is hundreds of times more competent and more right thinking than whoever would be in that position if the other side had won.

Very good point.

Bannon goes on major NYC liberal's show and gives to  him the next big smash into his boss's face.  Here is Kuttner .  The rest is all over the news.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Kuttner

and completely contradicts Trump on NK

obviously to cover his own back side:

to tell the world  he is not a white supremacist..........
and he does not want to kill Koreans ..........

---------------------------

A world with a Korea and an Iran capable of ICBMs?Huh

No biggie.

It is looking more and more Trump will have to step aside

He can't do this alone.   

It is becoming every man for himself it seems.

Another underling who basically undercuts and disqulifies the President's statements.
Like Bannon undercutting N Korea who he stated won their their nucs and it is over .

maybe we should have a threat "the cognitive dissonance of the Trump administration"

I don't know what to make of Tillerson frankly.
when i hear him on TV like the weekend interview with Chris Wallace he sounds very reasonable but then i read very negative things about how he has not really taken over the State Department and just defers to Obama philes
that many positions are simply still not being filled
perhaps he has too much on his plate
I just am not sure .

Tillerson's job is talk and Mattis' job is action.

Trump "speaks for himself" is only controversial if people want it to be:
http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/28/opinions/tillerson-trump-values-miller-sokolsky-opinion/index.html

The incident did not affect him, why be drawn into it?

basically contradicting him.  We need ANOTHER panel of EXPERTS to discuss this:

Maybe-- and maybe just politically and legally astute.
