(By Roger Stone) In January 2017, Dina Habib Powell joined the Trump White House and is currently the U.S. Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategy formerly serving as an Assistant to the President and Senior Counselor for Economic Initiatives.
How did this ex-Bush White House aide who is best friends with Hillary’s gal pal, confidant, advisor, and vice chair of her 2016 campaign for the presidency Huma Abedin, Obama White House Chief of Staff Valery Jarrett and discredited Bush National Security Advisor Condi Rice who walked us into the Iraq war over weapons of mass destruction that did not exist get this job ?
How did this globalist insider and ardent neo-con land a key spot in the Trump circle?
The answer lies in Presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner and his wife Ivanka. Having not only inserted this fifth column in the Trump White House , Jared and Ivanka now hope to make the quisling Powell the White House Chief of Staff if (when) current Trump Chief of Staff Reince Priebus goes.
Forty three year old Dina Powell was born in Cairo, Egypt on June 23, 1973. Her family moved to the United States when she was four, settling in Texas. She learned to speak English quickly while continuing to speak fluent Farsi. She attended the Ursuline Academy for Girls in Dallas and later went to the University of Texas-Austin where she earned a bachelor’s degree.
In 1988 she married Richard Powell, a senior public affairs executive. They have two daughters. Her first brush with politics came when she interned with Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. During G.W. Bush’s presidency, she served as Assistant Secretary of State for Education and Cultural Affairs and at 29, became the youngest person to direct the White House personnel office.
In 2007 she joined Goldman Sachs as a managing director and became a partner in 2010, recently serving as the president for the Goldman Sachs Foundation and Goldman Sachs Impact Investing team working primarily on philanthropic efforts. Goldman, you will remember, was a major funding source for Hillary’s campaign as well as stuffing $675,000 in Hillary’s pocket for a speech the former First Lady refused to release.
The neo-cons are wild about Dina. Dick Cheney’s daughter Liz said “She is such an effective spokesperson for us, because she speaks Arabic and is an Arab woman and can stand up as a role model and as somebody who can defuse some of the misconceptions.” “She’s so bright,” just a bright shiny star.”
“Dina Powell is a tremendous talent and has a stellar record of public service as well as a great career in the private sector,” the President said in a statement. “She has been recognized for her strategic oversight of key programs and initiatives and is a leader in both economic growth and the crucial empowerment of women in various aspects of business development and entrepreneurial endeavors.” Clearly , the President knows little of Powells’s pedigree or background.
Trump’s White House has been leaking since the start and it’s no surprise that Dina Powell has long been considered a leaker. In 1990 she got in trouble for leaking negative stories on Ginny Thomas, the wife of Justice Clarence Thomas. Now she and National Security Advisor H R McMaster have been pegged by sources at the National Security Council as two of Trump’s major leakers! President Trump has surrounded himself with double crossing double agents who will do him harm. Let’s hope he wakes up before it is too late.
