Dr. Sebastian Gorka, recently signed as a Fox News contributor, joined SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Wednesday’s Breitbart News Daily to talk about the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s Tuesday hearing to review the presidential launch authority for nuclear weapons.
Marlow denounced the hearing as part of an outrageous campaign to “nullify the 2016 election” and “dehumanize” President Donald Trump.
Gorka agreed with Marlow about the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, saying there are two ways to look at it, “and both of them are correct.”
“One of them is the Establishment – left and right – trying to nullify the choice of the American people and the Electoral College last year,” he said.
“Secondly, it’s actually good news, Alex,” Gorka continued. “Last year, at the end of the campaign cycle, I went on Facebook, I went on Twitter, I posted videos, and I said, ‘What do you think of Donald Trump?’ There’s one very simple question you have to ask when you go into that booth, full in that form, or pull the lever. And it’s: ‘Which one of these candidates, Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, will keep us safer given the incredible dangers we face, and that we have inherited over the last eight years?’”
“There’s only one right answer to that question. It’s Donald Trump. We’ve seen him prove that with how we’ve decimated ISIS in just a few months, how we’ve rebuilt all our alliances, all our relationships in Asia, in Europe, across the globe,” he said.
“The Establishment wants to undermine that very clear choice,” Gorka charged:
But the good news is the following: they can only do this, they could only behave in such an outrageous fashion if they were still in their ironclad Kevlar-wrapped bubble. The idea that they’re going to countermand the Commander-in-Chief’s authority? That’s them doubling down and not understanding the enormity of what happened on November the 8th — which, at the end of the day, is good for all patriots because it means they don’t understand the winds of change are blowing through the Establishment.
Gorka agreed with Marlow that Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-TN) is “completely part of the problem.” Gorka said:
The idea that he’s related to this or facilitated this is just more of what we’ve seen already. Why do we know this? This is the man who with his amendment, as a so-called Republican, actually facilitated the JCPOA Iran deal. With the Corker amendments, he eviscerated the Senate’s mandate, the Senate’s unique authority, to be the organ that ratifies treaties that this great nation makes. He removed that by saying you don’t need a two-thirds positive vote for a treaty. You have to have a two-thirds negative vote to stop a treaty. So this is a man who facilitated the Obama regime. It’s no surprise that now he’s trying to undermine the Republican president.
During the interview, Gorka also looked at the apparent coup against longtime dictator Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, and the political upheaval in Saudi Arabia.
Gorka said of Zimbabwe that 91-year-old Robert Mugabe ran an “authoritarian dictatorial regime,” describing him as a “dinosaur of a previous age who unfortunately is still in power.”
“He dismissed his deputy last week in the hopes that he would be able to give control of the whole country over to his wife,” Gorka explained. “Now the reports are that maybe there was an attempt by this fired deputy to replace Mugabe. The military are now in control. Unfortunately, it looks as if they are in support of the old regime, but in this country, who knows? Let’s wait and see if there’s actually hope for some kind of restoration of normalcy in this benighted country.”
Marlow noted that Mugabe has been the sole leader of Zimbabwe since it declared independence in the 1980s, making the notion of a coup seem both momentous and suspicious, given Mugabe’s tight grip on power.
“Rule Number One: they say about war, every report from the war zone, every initial report, is false or wrong, so let’s wait and see,” Gorka advised. “It’s early days. I am leery. I am conscious of the fact that the military right now looks as if they are remaining loyal to the president. These things change very, very rapidly. We will see if there’s any kind of counter, any kind of political state that can counter Mugabe, and whether the military decides to join that state, but right now it’s too early to say.”
Turning to Saudi Arabia, Gorka said it was a “far, far more optimistic scenario.”
“Let’s give credit where credit is due: the President of the United States went into the heart of the Hijrah, the homeland of Islam. He went to Riyadh and he gave a speech to more than 50 assembled Arab and Muslim heads of state. It wasn’t protocol, it wasn’t diplomacy, it was very tough talk. He actually said you must rid your mosques, you must rid your society of the extremists, of the terrorists,” Gorka recalled.
“And what happened? Just a few days later — eight days later, nine days later — the Gulf Cooperation Council, the GCC, actually took action. They turned on Qatar, the worst support of the Muslim Brotherhood and jihadi ideologists amongst themselves. There’s been a blockade, if you will, of Qatar since then. And now it looks as if MBS, who is on our side, who has very good relations with the president, is deciding to clean his own house,” he said.
“This is what we’ve been waiting for, for decades, and it is a very, very good sign, Alex,” Gorka declared.
