The Gorka repository
We can start with this:

http://www.newsweek.com/sebastian-gorka-white-house-terrorism-adviser-angry-call-559805?rx=us

Quote
Several times during his call with Smith, Gorka invited him to the White House to hash out their differences "face to face, man to man," as he put it in one exchange. They set a tentative date for March 8.

But Smith warned Gorka that "in absolute fairness to you, what you will hear is that I have very serious concerns about our national security," and in particular Gorka's role "as an adviser to the president of the United States."

"If you make a devastating case, then so be it," Gorka said.

"So be it?" Smith answered. "Then what, you'll acknowledge you're out of your league?"

"Yeah, absolutely," Gorka said. "Bring it on."

Late Wednesday, Gorka withdrew his invitation.

"Given your statements for the latest attack piece and continued disparaging Tweets against not only myself but the administration and the President," Gorka wrote Smith, "consider your invitation to meet withdrawn."

But did he tell Smith to bring a box for his teeth?

Fun fact - "gor'ko" (basically pronounced like Gorka) - means bitter in Russian!

After Sept. 11, the American government, its allies, the academy and myriad journalists undertook to dissect the phenomenon of radicalization, explore its pathways, unpack Quranic language on violence and understand the sociology of Islamic terrorism. The suggestion that Mr. Gorka brings new insight is self-gratifying, grandiose malarkey.

What emerged from these decades of engagement with jihadism was a nascent counterterrorism strategy. That was scuttled when the United States took a sharp wrong turn with the invasion of Iraq, a misstep that was a profound boon to extremists. But even so, counterterrorism strategy has evolved into a sustainable program of counter-radicalization and targeted military operations. Mr. Gorka seems oblivious to this legacy. For him, a huge effort that gathered momentum decades ago somehow amounts to "downplaying the seriousness of the threat."

What has been learned during this long effort from law enforcement, intelligence community analyses and an abundance of scholarship on jihadists is that religious doctrine is not their sole or even primary driver. The issues that Mr. Gorka so defiantly "jettisons" actually do play a role.

Declaring a religious war now would only validate the jihadist narrative and force fence-sitters to procure AK-47s. Having elevated a huckster weak on jihadist history and doctrine and unaware of what his own government has learned over decades, the Trump administration now risks exacerbating the very security challenges it hopes to surmount. H. R. McMaster, the newly appointed national security adviser -- a strong choice -- will quickly have to exorcise Mr. Bannon and Mr. Miller's worldview if the administration is to forge a sound national security policy. Getting rid of Mr. Gorka should be an early priority.

Brutal. But very much correct, it seems.

Anyone who is familiar with how fascists work, knows that they never face their opponents one on one.
Who even made the rule that we cannot group ducks and fish together for the simple reason that they are both aquatic? If I want to group them that way and it serves my purpose then I can jolly well do it however I want to and it is still a nested hierarchy and you can't tell me that it's not.

Bottom line is, given enough time, Trump will be turned into a  Democrat.

After which the Repubs will disaovow him and he will impeached and found guilty of treason and subsequently guillotined.

wonder how many people out there are seriously defending him, not even necessarily out of blind alt-right loyalty, but because they don't have a clue how thin his "resume" is.  like I assume there are people who still take this "phd" seriously, and think he has "qualifications".

And most of those people will also rail against academic elites.

And demand that Wikipedia is a perfectly legitimate citation on a dissertation.

I doubt it's a find-the-Nazi shell game. If it's true he's leaving the WH it's surely to a less influential position somewhere.

CNN reports it too now: http://edition.cnn.com/2017/04/30/politics/gorka-leaving-white-house/index.html

The question is not whether Gorka has an official position in the WH or not, so long as Gorka and Bannon still have a voice in policy and the ear of the president. Moving these pieces around on the board while not actually changing the connection between the administration and the radical right wing is not a "victory." It is a distraction.
