The National Security Council Is A Mess And Flynn’s Successor Will Have To Fix...

Deputy National Security Advisor K. T. McFarland, now former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and now-acting NSA Keith Kellogg in the Oval Office Jonathan Ernst / Reuters WASHINGTON — For those in US national security circles, there are three ways the next national security advisor can go: he can sink, he can clash, or he can bring the body he is meant to lead back into the policy fold after three weeks of tumult under outgoing Ret Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. The three leading contenders to replace Flynn, who resigned late Monday after clashing with Vice President Mike Pence over the content of his phone calls with the Russian ambassador, collectively personify those options, some national security observers believe. Ret. Lt Gen. Keith Kellogg, the interim adviser, may find it difficult to keep up with the strong personalities already around President Donald Trump, three US officials told BuzzFeed News. They worry that, should he become the permanent replacement, he could keep th..

The “Myth” Of Factory Jobs Coming Back To America

Pool / Getty Images Donald Trump has made clear that he wants his presidency to be about jobs — more specifically, his "bold plan to create 25 million new American jobs in the next decade" and "bring good-paying jobs to our shores and support American manufacturing, the backbone of our economy." Nobody knows exactly how that will work — and many believe part of it is simply not going to happen. "The idea that somehow there will be this big employment surge in manufacturing is a myth," economist Jeffrey Sachs told BuzzFeed News. The claim that manufacturing is still the backbone of the US economy is wrong, he said — it only employs about 8% of the workforce. Could it employ more Americans? As the Trump administration pushes to bring factories back to the US, many of the manufacturing jobs overseas are currently being replaced by machines — meaning bringing them home won't do much for workers. In his new book Building the New American Economy, Sachs lays out his argument for where..

More Trump Aides Will Leave With Michael Flynn, Source Says

Chris Kleponis / AFP / Getty Images Other members of the National Security Council staff that ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn assembled over the last two months will be following him in his exit from the White House — including his deputy, a Trump administration source told BuzzFeed News. The departure of K.T. McFarland, who was appointed in December to serve as the number-two person on the NSC and chair of the body's deputies committee meetings, was first reported in the New York Times. Joining her are other senior directors, the source said. "Whoever the new national security adviser is should be able to pick his own team," the source told BuzzFeed News. The expectation that Flynn's team will leave with him runs counter to what White House officials told the NSC just this morning. At a meeting on Tuesday, NSC staff was told that no one senior was being asked to leave, according to a second source, including McFarland. "KT is staying," NSC spokesman Michael..

US Allies In Europe Have No Idea “What The Fuck Is Going On” With...

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg Yves Herman / Reuters BRUSSELS — Already concerned by the Trump administration's erratic approach to the trans-Atlantic alliance, European security services have been shaken by the resignation of US National Security Advisor Michael Flynn over allegations he lied about his contacts with Russian diplomats, amid increasing concern that the new US administration is pursuing an uncomfortably close relationship with NATO's foremost rival, Russia. Flynn’s resignation Monday night immediately sent European officials into a frenzy of attempting to determine what the change of the president’s top national security advisor would mean as the Atlantic alliance has already been struggling with understanding how the new president will approach a litany of complex European situations from the expansion of NATO to the war against ISIS to concerns about an expansionist Russia. "I was hoping you could tell me what the fuck is going on over there,” sai..

With Flynn Gone, Where Does Trump Go On Russia?

Win Mcnamee / Getty Images WASHINGTON — As retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn trudges away from the National Security Council, David Cattler’s job gets a lot harder. Cattler, according to two people with knowledge of the NSC, was hand-picked with Flynn’s blessing to manage the Russia portfolio for the NSC, despite a lack of expertise on the Kremlin. With the departure of Flynn — who has made no secret of his affinity for Moscow, and has been thought to be one of the driving forces behind the Trump administration’s approach to the Kremlin — where Trump and the NSC go on Russia is a glaring question mark. Flynn spent the better part of the last month staffing up the NSC with intelligence hands like Cattler, who was announced as an NSC addition early this month. Whether Flynn’s team will stay in place now that he’s gone remains to be seen. Being a “Flynn” person, one former military intelligence analyst said, could mean a whole host of things. “That could mean [Cattler] loves to fight terror..

Flynn’s Resignation Has Officials Across The Middle East Bracing For More Chaos

Carlos Barria / Reuters ISTANBUL — Top US allies in the Middle East said they were concerned about signs of chaos within the Trump administration after the resignation of Michael Flynn from the post of national security adviser less than a month into the job. One Middle East official agreed with the description of the turmoil in Washington as “fitna,” which means sedition in Arabic, a loaded term that refers to the violent struggle that marked the Shia-Sunni split in Islam. But officials were also confident that the US system would quickly stabilize and maintain focus on top priorities, like defeating ISIS and confronting Iran, which Flynn put on notice after a ballistic missile test in one of his first acts as national security adviser. Few if any leaders in the Middle East publicly commented on Flynn’s departure, but American adversaries were likely heartened by the chaos in Washington. A commentator on Iran's state-run Press TV called Flynn's resignation “unfortunate for ..

UK Government Rejects Petition To Scrap Trump’s State Visit To Britain

Kevin Lamarque / Reuters The British government has said the controversial visit of US president Donald Trump will go ahead, rejecting a petition signed by almost two million people protesting the visit. In response to the parliamentary petition, which had 1.8m signatures before closing, the foreign office stated in a written answer that the US president "should be extended the full courtesy of a State Visit. We look forward to welcoming President Trump once dates and arrangements are finalised". It continued that although the government recognised "the strong views expressed by the many signatories of this petition", it "does not support this petition". "During her visit to the United States on 27 January 2017, the Prime Minister, on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen, invited President Trump for a State Visit to the UK later this year. The invitation was accepted. "This invitation reflects the importance of the relationship between the United States of America and the United Kingdom. A..

These Are The Military Men Who Could Replace Trump’s National Security Adviser

Acting NSA Keith Kellogg Drew Angerer / Getty Images Only twenty-four days after the Trump administration began, National Security Advisor Michael Flynn has stepped down, leaving a placeholder retired general behind and a sense of confusion and dread in the body he ran. For now, former Lt. General Joseph Keith Kellogg, Jr. has been named as acting national security adviser in Flynn's stead. Kellogg had spent the last just over three weeks serving under Flynn as the National Security Council's chief of staff. During the campaign, he was an advisor to Trump on foreign policy and military matters. Prior to his retirement, he'd served as head of the Command, Control, Communications, and Computers Directorate under the Joint Chiefs of Staff. "I am honored to not only be a part of this historic administration but also to be serving with General Flynn and KT McFarland, who are widely respected as some of the most experienced and strategic national security minds,” Kellogg sa..
