c3s0f4gwaaaiuhq A new executive order came out today listing the new  makeup of the National Security Council. Most notably, the Director of National Intelligence and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs have been demoted to not attending, while White House Chief Strategist has been added as a principal member. Chief Strategist is a political position and is occupied by noted white supremacist and Breitbart publisher Steve Bannon. This is a highly unusual change,  as the NSC has historically been viewed as “off limits” to political advisors. Bannon is particularly troubling in that beyond stoking racial and ethnic hatred, he is a noted Putin supported, and has has described himself as a “Leninist,” saying, “Lenin wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment.”
