Yawn. Nothing new happened this past week. Once again the once again once again repeated and repeated. Nothing new.
Big Media headlines of the past week continue to vomit the headlines of wish-casting. “It’s over for Trump!” “Trump in Turmoil!” “Trump voters abandon Trump!” “Trump did something outrageous!”
So what “happened” this past week? Race-baiters in Charlottesville race-baited. President Donald J. Trump told the truth and was attacked by the totalitarian Left. President Donald J. Trump told the truth and Big Media attacked him. President Donald J. Trump told the truth and the Republican establishment attacked President Trump. Muslim terrorists attacked innocents in Barcelona but the “Muslim” component of the headline is removed by Big Media. President Donald J. Trump beat the sh*t out of North Korea. Steve Bannon was fired from the White House and all the news headlines merged into one.
Let’s start with Steve Bannon. We knew it was over for Steve Bannon the moment we read an article Roger Stone published on Thursday:
Steven K. Bannon, the swashbuckling former Goldman Sachs banker and press baron of Breitbart news who calls himself “Chief Strategist” of Trump’s historic campaign, is in deep trouble within the Trump White House.
To be clear, I am no fan of National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster whose globalist views and hires are negating the foreign policy the President ran on.
I am one who had publicly defended Bannon from false charges of racism and anti-Semitism yet I have concluded he is a spent force, never being willing to spend his political capital to help his friends and in some cases helping empower the very Globalists he claims to oppose. [snip]
It is more in sadness than in anger that I conclude that Steve Bannon has failed to look out for the Trump constituency, while establishment “never Trumpers ” line up for cushy jobs and prestigious ambassadorships. Not understanding that “personnel is policy”, Bannon refused to fight for any of his allies or those who helped get Trump elected. It’s as if Steve felt the grubby business of patronage was below him.
Self-promotion and ham-handed leaking have hurt Steve badly in the Trump orbit. There is no Karl Rove in Trump-World. Trump is his own man. He is not handled or managed and hates it when subordinates try to do so. He is his own strategist and correctly resents when others take credit for the historic strategy and win, that is really his alone. [snip]
In all fairness, all of the key elements of the message that elected Trump had been chosen and defined by Trump himself long before Mr. Bannon arrived at the Trump campaign for the final weeks of the campaign.
The able Sam Nunberg worked diligently with candidate Trump to help him package his views during the earliest stages of the campaign and Trump road-tested these themes and honed them. He never deviated from these core messages; the dangers of our immigration system and the Wall; the inequities at NATO; our flawed international trade deals that he saw destroying the American job market; the abuses of America by the Chinese, fixing our broken Veteran’s healthcare system; opposition to costly foreign wars where the national interest is not absolutely clear. These were all planks in the Trump platform before Steve showed up. [snip]
It was always Trump’s campaign. [snip]
The Trump State Department has failed to excise the Soros control of a number of U.S. embassies and is currently leaning on the Hungarian government not to impede Soros toppling of that democratically elected government. Bannon delivered the Trump State Department into the hands of the Globalists.
While Bannon chafed with the influence of Presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner, he would never oppose him frontally and he never even lifted a finger against the appointment of quislings like Dina Habib Powell and Goldman Sachs’ Gary Cohn.
Bannon failed to push the President to use his most potent rhetorical and political weapon-Term Limits -in his current fight with the Congress. Bannon did nothing to dissuade the President from endorsing Mitch McConnell’s candidate in the Alabama Special Election primary which sent the clear signal to Republicans in Congress that you can thwart the President and there are no consequences.
Bannon has also failed to tell the President about the single most potent weapon he has; FISA Court certification that Obama’s NSA actively, illegally and unconstitutionally spied at least on 30,000 Americans for purposes of political espionage. These indictable offenses and their prosecution is the key to derailing the Deep State coup unfolding before our eyes, yet Bannon never mentioned the FISA ruling to the President.
When Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio who was a strong and articulate supporter of the President and his criticism of our current Immigration policies, was indicted for civil rights violations of prisoners in his custody the Obama Justice Department made certain he was tried under the wrong statue to deny him a jury trial. The Justice Department illegally monitored the Sheriffs communication with his lawyer as well as improperly communicating directly with the judge during his trial Arpaio’s prosecution is a political hit job and the government’s misconduct in his prosecution are certainly grounds for dismissal by the Trump Justice Department. Steve Bannon never mentioned the case to President who was shocked to learn about Arpaio’s conviction when he didn’t know about his trial. All of Arpaio’s phone calls to Bannon to protest his treatment by the Trump Justice Department went unanswered. [snip]
There is no reason for conservatives to be upset about the coming purge of Steve Bannon. He did a lot to help himself but not much to help us.
We don’t think Steve Bannon is the demon loser Roger Stone paints him out to be. But for us Steve Bannon had to go the moment he gave an interview to The American Prospect:
Contrary to Trump’s threat of fire and fury, Bannon said: “There’s no military solution [to North Korea’s nuclear threats], forget it. Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that ten million people in Seoul don’t die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don’t know what you’re talking about, there’s no military solution here, they got us.”
At that point Bannon lost us. Steve Bannon mocked President Donald J. Trump and his latest steps to euthanize North Korea and mocked President Trump’s efforts. Good-bye Steve Bannon. As Roger Stone said of President Trump, “He makes his own decisions. He also will make wholesale changes if he thinks things aren’t going well.” Corey Lewandowski, Paul Manafort, countless others have learned this lesson before.
The bottom line for us is that as an advisor Steve Bannon contributed very little other than the gloss of support from outlets such as Breitbart. We also did not like the obvious leaks from Bannon. President Trump should fire all the leakers at the White House even if they happen to be family. The only leaks that should happen are leaks the President authorizes.
The best thing for President Trump and Steve Bannon is for Steve Bannon to go back to Breitbart and fight the war he never fought inside the White House. All of which he has done or promises to do:
Bannon Says He’s `Going to War for Trump’ After White House Exit
Ousted White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon returned to the conservative Breitbart News website on Friday and said he’ll be “going to war” for President Donald Trump, vowing to intensify from the outside the fight he has waged against opponents of his brand of populist conservatism.
“If there’s any confusion out there, let me clear it up: I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents — on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America,” Bannon said Friday in an interview with Bloomberg News hours after his departure was announced.
Bannon led the evening editorial meeting at Breitbart, where he resumed his role as executive chairman, the website said in a statement.
Steve Bannon was a wasted resource at the White House. Now Bannon can attack the GOP establishment and not look like an agent of the President. We want Bannon to agitate. Bannon now is free and therefore more powerful. Bannon should now focus his fire on McConnell and Ryan, the treacherous two.
Steve Bannon resigned on August 7. This resignation came before the Charlottesville race-baiting.
President Donald J. Trump is not blameless. President Trump must take the full blame for his actions. President Donald J. Trump is to blame for telling the truth. Every time President Donald J. Trump tells the truth he gets in trouble. Keep on telling the truth Mr. President.
On Charlottesville President Trump blamed the violence on both sides in the prelude to the coming civil war that increasingly is not only likely, but necessary. President Trump is entirely correct. The right wing demonstrators who legally rallied were a small minority. The totalitarian leftists that started the violence and attacked the demonstrators did what they always do. Nothing new here.
Leftist organizations and publications have recently begun to debate the question of leftist violence. For these leftists the question is whether leftist violence has the effect of helping the right wing.
Leftist violence hurts the left and any dolt who does not understand that simple equation we refer to some of our previous articles on Chicago 1968 as well as the debates between Martin Luther King and leftist hero Malcolm X who advocated violence. Dr. King chided Malcontent X that the guys with the guns were on the other side. End of story.
The totalitarian left does have a strategy. It’s one we have referenced before ad nauseum. The strategy of the totalitarian left is to separate President Donald J. Trump from his supporters:
The Democratic party, for now a politically powerless bystander, is using its media allies to fight its future battles. The ultimate aim is to disillusion the 2016 Trump voters in the erstwhile “Democratic blue wall” in upcoming elections. The real world political fight as far as the presidency is concerned is in the Electoral College battleground states. The stark truth is that the vast majority of states will nearly always vote the same way in the next election. Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and of course Florida will decide the presidency in 2020.
The leftist strategy will fail, as we predicted earlier this year.
Add to the many Obama Dimocrats already about to lose their reelection runs to the Senate the potential loss now of Senator Menendez who will soon face trial and will be replaced by a Chris Christie appointment. Add the growing scandals the Obama Dimocrats face regarding the three Muslim brothers protected by House Dimocrats.
Trump voters? Even the L.A. Times in their polls see the evidence that Trump supporters remain Trump supporters. The “polls” will show a dip in Trump support as some Trump supporters “go underground” for safety with their Trump support as the totalitarian leftist hate boils and bubbles. But as in 2016 Trump supporters will be Trump voters in 2018 and 2020.
There is also Barcelona. Another Muslim terror attack on the West. This will drive the vote in 2016 and 2020. The Obama Dimocrats will run on anti-Trump hate and no agenda other than leftist lunacy on social issues. President Trump will run on Make America Great Again in 2020. His greatest ally will be reality and history. Everything old is new again.
