The battle between globalist and nationalist factions is reaching a boiling point amid a number of recent resignations and firings. Following the resignations and removals of Reince Priebus, Sean Spicer and Anthony Scaramucci, The Atlantic is now reporting NSC official, Rich Higgins, a member of the Nationalist faction of the White House, was fired after penning a memo outlining the Deep State threats facing President Trump.
The Hill reports:
The Atlantic reported Wednesday that Rich Higgins, who served as the director of strategic planning in the NSC’s strategic planning office, was removed from his post on July 21 for writing the memo, which alleged that leftists, globalists, Islamists and so-called “deep state” actors are engaged in “political warfare” against Trump.
“Through the campaign, candidate Trump tapped into a deep vein of concern among many citizens that America is at risk and slipping away,” the memo reads. “Globalists and Islamists recognize that for their visions to succeed, America, both as an ideal and as a national and political identity, must be destroyed.”
Higgins, whom The Atlantic noted is seen as an ally of White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, had only served on the NSC for a couple months before his ouster.
Since taking on the national security adviser role, McMaster has reportedly worked to rid the NSC of political elements.
Higgins’ memo was reportedly authored in late May and began circulating among people outside the White House associated with Trump’s campaign.
It isn’t clear how McMaster became aware of the memo’s existence. Higgins was told by deputy national security adviser Ricky Waddell on July 21 that he was being removed from the NSC.
News of the firing comes amid rumors McMaster may be replaced by CIA Chief Pompeo.
In a Saturday afternoon tweet, Circa News’ Sara Carter revealed President Trump is mulling another major White House shake-up, which would see National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster replaced by CIA Director Mike Pompeo.
“Investigating: Rumors swirling in Wash circles and sources saying
@realDonaldTrump “considering CIA Pompeo to replace HR” wait and see?”, tweeted Carter.

As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, Sara Carter of Circa News said her sources told her that NatSec Advisor, H.R. McMaster has been communicating White House internal politics to Deep State Acting FBI Director Andy McCabe. Carter then implied that more White House shake-ups are perhaps on the horizon.

We have long suspected H.R. McMaster to be a globalist. As TGP previously reported, Susan Rice wanted General Flynn out. After McMaster was brought in to replace Flynn, she took to her Twitter account to congratulate him and said, “Hope you will be able to choose your team, have direct reporting and daily access to POTUS, and can eliminate Strategic Initiatives Group.”

Strategic Initiatives Group was reportedly an internal White House think tank led by Steve Bannon set up to influence President Trump. Steve Bannon was removed from the National Security Council on April 5th.
Many eyebrows are being raised now as Nationalist advisors are being pushed out or put on the back burner while globalists trickle in. Was the ousting of General Flynn planned all along in order to stop Trump’s ‘America first’ agenda? Seems likely.
The Trump base will be happy to hear this.
