Earlier today, White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci was reportedly “removed” at the request of newly sworn-in Chief Of Staff John Kelly due to his “conduct unbecoming of a White House official.” Many pundits, news organizations and other figures quickly picked up the story and voiced off.
Several Pro-Trumpers, such as Wayne Dupree, host of “The Wayne Dupree Show” and host of “YourVoice(tm) America” Bill Mitchell have either tweeted in support of Mooch’s ousting of former COS Priebus; support of Trump and Kelly’s decision; or laughing at the Media’s obsession to figure out what exactly happened.
However, some other pundits, such as Mike Cernovich and cartoonist Stefan Molyneux have questioned why Mooch was fired and then escorted off of the White House lawn. Some of these “Pro-Trumpers” have now begun to turn their backs on the administration in light of this new development.
However, after a bit on analysis and a bit of research, it is possible that Scaramucci’s firing may have been because of the comments made to the New Yorker in that profanity laced interview, but it may have been an advantage for the Trump administration for a big reason.
What is the advantage that Team Trump now has? The team now has a smokescreen for the Mainstream media to feast on for a moment or two, while Trump talks serious business with his military advisors, generals, and WH staff about North Korea.
Starting from the 27th, North Korea had been ramping up military activity and rhetoric against the United States and it’s allies, including an ICBM test earlier in the month. Some had been predicting some sort of nuclear test to take place within the following days or weeks. However, on Thursday, North Korea sent a message to the US with a follow-up ICBM test, saying that the Mainland US is now “within striking distance.”
The ICBM landed in Japan’s exclusive economic zone, which prompted an emergency late-night meeting of the security council, which gave way to new and intense military exercises with the US, including US B-1Bs flying over the Peninsula in a display of force.
Tensions have continued to rise over the past few days, with President Trump pointing at China as a major problem:
But Today, however, has been extremely busy as it pertains to North Korea and the Asian theater, with Japan now backing Trump’s “Further action” statement to respond to the North Korean issue. Nikki Haley, the UN ambassador for the United States, also stated, “The time for talk is over.”
Also, Just after the media went into a frenzy about Scaramucci’s dismissal, ZeroHedge reported that South Korea was discussing an option for a “Surgical Strike” against North Korea:
According to a report in South Korea’s Munhwa Ilbo newspaper, which cites an unidentified government official, South Korea’s military is preparing a “surgical strike” scenario that could wipe out North Korean command and missile and nuclear facilities following an order by S.Korea’s President Moon Jae-in. Munhwa adds that the military is to report the scenario to presidential office after completing it as early as August 1.
As the report details, South Korea’s Special Forces are preparing a special strike op which would be launched in response to President Moon Jae-In’s order to remove the North Korean leadership in case of emergency. This operation is taking place in addition to separate preparations currently conducted by the country’s military forces.
Targeted by the surgical strike would be North Korea’s core facilities. As part of the operation, South Korea’s forces would launch Taurus cruise missiles from F-15 fighters, which would be able to strike all key facilities in Pyongyang and can also strike the office of the Chairman of the Labor Party, Kim Jong Eun, at the Pyongyang Labor Party headquarters.
The newspaper also adds that the South Korean military’s own strike-hit scenarios include plans to create a special mission brigade of 1,000 to 2,000 at the end of this year with plans to eliminate war leadership figures such as Kim Jong Un and paralyze warfare command facilities in case of emergency. The military authorities have already commenced the CH-47D (Chinook) performance improvement project to transport these special mission brigades
And as this story is being written, Breaking911 on twitter has reported, according to CNN citing US Defense officials, that “highly unusual” submarine activity has been detected off of the North Korean Coast.
What this could potentially mean is that Scaramucci’s firing is a potential smokescreen for the media to gnaw at while Trump can talk with President Moon of South Korea, Prime Minister Abe of Japan about a potential solution to end the North Korea Problem.
On top of it, Trump’s dismissal of Priebus and insertion of DHS secretary John Kelly signals that Trump may be building a war council within the White House and trying to bring order within the executive branch to address serious topics, especially abroad amid rising tensions in the Asian theater.
With North Korea’s ability to now possible strike the Mainland US, as far east as Cincinnati, and as far north at the Canadian Border, the time for action is now, but cannot be exposed to the world and picked up by North Korean intelligence operations, as it would jeopardize allied forces moves.
With a smokescreen now in place and the media gnawing at the Scaramucci “scandal”, Trump now has ample opportunity to discuss with military officials and pacific allies, as well as Chinese officials in order to solve the North Korean problem.
