No, Steve Bannon Wasn’t Booted From the NSC

You thought Donald Trump kicked Steve Bannon off of the National Security Council, didn’t ya?

Well, you’d be wrong!

New York Times:

Mr. Trump removed Mr. Bannon, his chief strategist, from the National Security Council’s cabinet-level “principals committee” on Wednesday. The shift was orchestrated by Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster, Mr. Trump’s national security adviser, who insisted on purging a political adviser from the Situation Room where decisions about war and peace are made.

Mr. Bannon resisted the move, even threatening at one point to quit if it went forward, according to a White House official who, like others, insisted on anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. Mr. Bannon’s camp denied that he had threatened to resign and spent the day spreading the word that the shift was a natural evolution, not a signal of any diminution of his outsize influence.

    • I think expanding gTLDs by allowing to choose your own suffix is a poor idea. The Internet is a mess already and this will make it even worse. IMO, ICANN should have from the start restricted ownerships for domain extensions. You’re not a commercial entity? You don’t get a .com. You’re not in the internet business? You don’t get a .net. It would have been an extra step for veinticafior, but it was doable. Now we have millions of unrelated, worthless parked domain names that could have been used for good.
