Do you remember during the Bush presidency when everyone was concerned about how evil Dick Cheney seemed to be? Well, Trump has at least two people worse than that in the White House. Neither them are people who need to be confirmed by the Senate. Politico has a good write up on Stephen Miller.
I am here to talk about Steve Bannon. A lot of you may wonder how an alt-right sensationalist online newspaper CEO ended up in the newly created position of Chief Strategist in the White House, and how he managed to convince Trump to add him to the National Security Council to the detriment of both the director of National Intelligence and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
“Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s power. It only helps us when they—get it wrong. When they’re blind to who we are and what we’re doing,” is what Bannon said in an interview in November. Now that we have established the terrible evil we are faced with, we should look at Bannon more.
Bannon is a twice divorced anti-semitic wife abusing deadbeat dad.
There is a far right Conservative Group, the Council on National Policy, that is incredibly secretive and doesn’t publish member lists. Someone leaked the 2014 member list to the Southern Poverty Law Center and Bannon is on it. Tony Perkins was listed as Vice President. Brent Bozell, Kelly Anne Conway, The DeVos family, Ed Meese, and Tim LaHaye are members. So are Steve Forbes, Jerome Corsi, and Michael Peroutka.
In 2015, Breitbart reporters started leaking out that there was a financial arrangement between Bannon and trump for good coverage.
After Corey lewandowski (campaign manager 1) was accused of assault by Breitbart employee, that employee quit when Bannon wouldn’t support them After Russian agent Manafort (campaign manager 2) was fired, Bannon was made campaign CEO And Conway campaign manager.
Bannon encouraged trump to be himself. Bannon pushed the wall, the Muslim ban, voter fraud and he told trump to Include Green card holders on the ban despite DHS Saying it was a bad idea.
Under Bannon, Breitbart added private mercenary Erik Prince as a contributor, Had Julia Hahn start publishing lists of illegal immigrant crimes, and advertised itself as the news of the alt right. Bannon brought Stephen Miller in as the Senior Advisor for Public Policy.
When Trump got elected it was talked about to have a military dictatorship style inauguration with tanks and missiles – This was Bannon idea
Bannon and Miller wrote his dark RNC and inauguration speech. Bannon has since hired Julia Hahn to be his assistant and make it White House policy to publish the weekly list of illegal immigrant crimes. Bannon has made deals with far right in Europe to expand Breitbart to France and Germany to swing elections there after seeing success with Brexit in England.
Now, as I wrote about yesterday, Bannon convinced Trump that he was more important to National Security than either the Director of National Intelligence and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. We’re off the rails, in a whole other parallel universe.
This man is evil personified, and he is pulling the strings of one of the most certifiably insane people on the planet. Be Scared. Be Vigilant. Don’t give up. Resistance has to be nonstop or they will win every battle.
