Rich Higgins served on the National Security Council in the early days of the Trump administration, before he was forced out by the enemies of the president for trying to expose their plans to sabotage the president’s entire agenda. In May 2017 he put out a blockbuster memo titled “The President and Poiltical Warfare,” which exposed a multi-pronged attack on every Trump White House. The memo laid out the exact stakes facing the country: Trump was under attack for, quote,” posing an existential threat to the cultural Marxist memes that dominate the mainstream cultural narrative.” Trump’s enemies weren’t just Democrats, he said, but “deep state actors, globalists, bankers, Islamists, and mainstream Republicans.” Perhaps he should have listed mainstream Republicans first, because they turned out to be the most dangerous enemy of all.
Sadly, Rich Higgins died last month. Gray Delany is the publisher of Rich’s book “The Memo: Twenty Years Inside the Deep State Fighting for America First.” He joins us to remember Rich’s life.
