Bannon’s Ill-Conceived War on the Establishment
National Review Online, by Jonathan S. Tobin

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 12/7/2017 3:25:10 PM

We already know Steve Bannon believes that politics is war. But during the course of his speech at an Alabama rally for Roy Moore this week, he gave the country an ugly lesson in what scorched-earth political warfare really entails. (Snip)Still, despite all the fun he’s having attacking his favorite targets and boosting Moore, Bannon has to be aware that he isn’t winning his war on McConnell. Try as he might to deny it, he knows McConnell is now more important to Trump than the Breitbart attack machine is. It was McConnell’s successful maneuvering and negotiating that gave Trump his

I have to agree with OP ... Bannon is a snake, as represented on the Gadsden.
Establishment beware we the people are “WOKED”.

I don´t know. He helped get Trump elected against all odds.

The war that was most "ill-conceived", IMO, was the war NRO declared on Trump. When they put out that ridiculous Never Trump issue, I was still very much against him. Even then I said it was moronic to do that, and I´ve been proven correct.

Since then, Trump has proven to be our most conservative-in-action president in decades. And a lot of that is with support from Bannon. NRO still has not accepted Trump and they still lob journalistic grenades at Bannon. They´ve missed the point entirely.

I ams so happy Boehner & McConnell fought Obama´s spending plans ´tooth & nail´. That DOUBLED our national debt in 7 years - added $10 TRILLION in unpaid spending - those Establishment guys are our savior!! Think of how bad things w/b without their courageous efforts.... I was so inspirational - it reminded me of when 43 was elected and Mehlman was the RNC leader - sending me request for contributions, when 43 was approving spending going through the roof....made me so proud back then....

Can´t wait till Trump pivots and starts the fight to rein-in the Swamp´s spending of our children´s future - today.....

With Bannon it´s all about Bannon. Bannon foisting a pedophile on the GOP is going to hurt DT´s agenda. DEMs will wrap the pedophile around the GOPs neck, the way the GOP wrapped Clinton around the DEMs neck for years. Whether Moore wins or loses the GOP loses. Lastly, Moore will be the loneliest Pol in DC... no one will want to be pictured with him... I can see it now people sprinting away from the picture frame if his picture is being taken.... a Moore-induced sprint.

If Bannon is ineffective, then why is Tobin and National Review so unctuous to separate Bannon from Trump?

Because they love Trump now?

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

McConnell would have done nothing to pass the tax bill if Bannon hadn´t posed a greater threat than cooperation with the Dreaded Deplorable Donald.

I completely disagree; Bannon is a conscience buster. He is a force that is impossible to ignore and we have needed such a force for a long, long time. Tobin says "McConnell´s hard work" is what pushed through the Senate tax reform "win". Well, it is not won yet and we have to ask, would "Mr. Turtle" have done that effort if it had not been for Bannon´s constant badgering and accusations of many in the GOPe end of the pool? Motivation is a very needed element in getting things down and as far as I can tell, such as in the effort to repeal Obamacare, Mr. turtle was about as unmotivated a leader as I have ever seen! Can we explain McConnell´s vicious attacks on Roy Moore or his un-explainable forced stupidity in all but tossing that election to the GD Democrat? To say McConnell all on his own suddenly has become a Trump Champion is to exceed the limits of believably. McConnell did what he did because of the public awareness about his utter duplicity and I think Bannon has a lot to do with that.

I like the Honey Badger... and I´ve been pleasantly surprised by the Commander-in-Chief. (I voted for him, although in honesty it was mostly a vote against the PIAPS.)

That said... I think both Bannon and Trump sometimes "shoot from the hip" - with a scatter-gun - and incur collateral damage.

I´m a "devout" Mormon. Perhaps not as devout as Romney... but a believer and practitioner. I served a 2-year full-time mission, and NOT to avoid the draft (my lottery # was 320). I wasn´t offended by Bannon´s Mormon remarks... but I´m not easily offended. And I can certainly understand how fellow Mormons could take umbrage. And Mormons are a consistently-conservative voting bloc, as a rule.

Tobin appears to be in denial. This is "war", and there will be no quarter given to the progressive/socialist not the GOPe. Even IF the "establishment is able to take down Trump and Bannon, someone else will simply fill the void and the "war" will continue to its ultimate conclusion. Come on Tobin, in case you haven´t noticed, everything you thought you knew changed dramatically with last November´s election. Get over it or get the heck out of the way. No fence riding this time, you are either with us or against us. You make the choice.

There´s a lot I don´t know but I do know that the GOP establishment has been quietly at war with me nibbling away at my flanks while I have been repelling the frontal assaults the of the democrat party.

Bannon is part of how I came to see that my flanks were being rolled up. Its hard to see that as ill-conceived.

Would McConnell have been as successful or successful at all if it weren´t for a bit of an attitude adjustment by we the people in part delivered by Bannon?

The Moore campaign has debunked all of the false claims of sex attacks against young girls, as well as the claim by the former cop that the police were tasked with following Moore around, as well as the claim that he´d been banned from a shopping mall. You´d think a reputable publication such as NRO would have the resources to know these things, yet NRO had proudly shed any semblance of integrity.

Lies from the article re: Judge Moore. Would the Democrats have written anything differently? "the former judge who stands credibly accused of preying on multiple young girls ... an accused sexual predator like Moore ... an embrace of someone widely viewed by most Americans as a scoundrel ... despite his unsavory past and extremist views..."

I would like to see Moore file libel suits against any and all, after his win.

This is cute too; FTA: "It’s also true that, with the retirements of Jeff Flake and Bob Corker, Bannon will probably fail to make good on his promise to use primary challenges to purge the House and Senate of everyone on his enemies list."

The Flake and Corker Democrat trash walked themselves to the curb because they would not survive the primaries. Snakes like these know how to preserve their earning potential, if nothing else, yet Tobin counts their removal from office as a failure by Bannon? Funnier still, NRO expects people to pay for such weak punditry?

If the Never Trumpers were Trumpers, there would be no war on the establishment, no Mueller investigation, Obamacare would be repealed, a better tax plan, budget cuts and a blowout in 2018 election. But the establishment just didn´t like Mr. Trump and sacrificed their voters and American citizens for what, I just don´t know. What idiots! Go Bannon Go. They gave Trumpers no choice.

I’m with him on declaring war on the Repstsblishment. Look what we have as a result of their anti Conservative Progressive agenda and the current failure across the board to provide real leadership. How much worse will it have to get before enough is enough. I’m sure McConnell and Ryan would support Trumps impeachment if the Democrats ever got the opportunity to do it, just to prove they can govern in a bipartisan manner. The days of a balanced budget are gone for good and they will make sure they spend this country into financial oblivion. Until then go ahead and bash Bannon if it makes you feel any better.

Bannon is a hero and attacking the Establishment is exactly the right thing to do.

All the RINO horrorshows that we have had for the last couple of decades are because the Uniparty doesn´t care what the voters want, they want to seesaw back and forth with no real changes as we march steadily to an irreversible globalist power structure with the USA crippled.

NRO has become part of the enemy, clearly.

Media’s Unhinged Attacks on

National Review Online, by Conrad Black    Original Article

In this season of frenzied liberal assault on the incumbent president and the almost uniform view of the long-standing bipartisan political elite of the United States that President Trump is a maniac, any falsehood about him or act of obstruction is justified in damaging his presidency, impairing his ability to govern, and bringing forward the swiftest possible return of the status quo ante-Trump. It is now routine for the principal outlets of media mythmaking to invoke the legacy of Richard Nixon confected by his accusers of long ago. The particular myth that has for several years been the preferred falsehood

There is a profound difference between (i) the soap-opera charges now being leveled by some opportunistic women against President Donald Trump and leveraged for cheap political gain by the Gillibrand Hypocrites within the Democrat Party and (ii) the pants-dropping of The Icon, John Conyers, and the butt-squeezing, tongue-slithering obscenities of Sen. Al Franken (who now indeed will have to leave the upper chamber, with no Roy Moore to counterbalance). Conyers and Franken have lost all legitimacy. By contrast, the American people elected President Trump with full transparent cognition of his public and private portfolio, thereby validating his office. 1. Personal Character

There was plenty of blame to go around as the Republican Party attempted to reconcile Tuesday’s painful election loss in deeply conservative Alabama, but most of the finger-pointing was directed at former White House chief political strategist Steve Bannon. Rep. Peter T. King of New York called on fellow Republicans to dump him. Former White House press secretary Anthony Scaramucci told Bloomberg TV that Mr. Bannon “has to be defeated by the Republican Party and frankly [he] has to be defeated by America.” A close ideological ally of President Trump, Mr. Bannon is leading a populist insurgency against the party’s Washington establishment

There was a rush to judgment last week on Peter Strzok, a top FBI counterintelligence agent and one of the lead agents on the Hillary Clinton emails investigation, after revelations that Strzok exchanged text messages during the 2016 campaign with an FBI lawyer that were pro-Clinton and anti-Trump. The lawyer was Lisa Page, with whom he was having an extramarital affair. Like Strzok, Page worked on both the Clinton probe and on special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of possible Trump campaign collusion with Russia. In light of the obvious appearance of bias, Mueller rightly removed Strzok from the Trump-Russia case. (Page had

Democratic leaders aren’t going to shut down the government to save Dreamers in December. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi haven’t stopped fighting to deliver something on immigration by the end of the month. But they’ve subtly shifted their rhetoric in recent days and aren’t insisting that deportation relief be paired with a government funding bill this year. Top Democrats’ retreat from demands on a deal before 2018 ensures they won’t get blamed for a possible shutdown and won’t upend Senate talks on a bipartisan deal combining relief for Dreamers with border security. Those negotiations appear

Political elites on both sides of the Atlantic are still frothing over President Donald Trump’s retweeting of three videos recording Muslims acting badly. The videos originated with a reviled British organization, Britain First, deemed a hate group by the British establishment for linking Britain’s high levels of Muslim immigration to incidents of Islamic terrorism. (Snip)The fury that Trump’s tweets have inspired is hard to square with cable news’ predilection for running endless repeats of videos showing police-officer use of force against civilians. If the media ever provided “context” for those videos, it passed by too fast for the eye to

WASHINGTON — Senior F.B.I. officials who helped investigate Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign last year wrote in text messages that Hillary Clinton “just has to win” and described a potential Trump victory as “terrifying,” according to texts released Tuesday night. A top counterintelligence agent, Peter Strzok, exchanged the messages with Lisa Page, a senior F.B.I. lawyer. Some messages criticized Mrs. Clinton’s team, the Obama administration, Congress and other Democrats. But the two appeared appalled at some of Mr. Trump’s comments during the campaign and feared that he would politicize the F.B.I. For example, after Mr. Trump made an apparent sexual allusion related

Whistleblower Says CFPB Falsified

A former employee of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is calling for an investigation after accusing managers of falsifying documents to impose fines on a payday lender. Cassandra Jackson, a former CFPB examiner in the southeast division, sent a letter last week to Attorney General Jeff Sessions also accusing managers of "widespread racism and gender discrimination." Jackson said her superiors at the CFPB asked her to falsify documents during her investigation into a Texas-based payday lending company, Ace Cash Express. "During the course of this examination, I was asked to change, remove, and otherwise falsify documents connected with this examination," Jackson said. Jackson said

Bannon´s ´kingmaker´ status
tarnished by Moore defeat

Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/13/2017 4:17:19     Post Reply
"There´s a special place in hell for Republicans who should know better,” former senior White House adviser Steve Bannon said on the eve of Alabama´s U.S. Senate election, as he went all-in for embattled Republican candidate Roy Moore. The next day, voting results showed Democrat Doug Jones to be the victor in the deep-red state, making him the first non-Republican to win a U.S. Senate seat there in more than two decades -- although Moore has not conceded. If Jones´ victory stands, it would tarnish the supposed “kingmaker” status Bannon enjoyed since Moore triumphed in the Republican primary over an establishment-backed candidate.

"Mr. Trump continues to exhibit paranoia about American intelligence agencies," wrote the NeverTrump conservative Max Boot in the New York Times a week or so before the president took office. "Consumed by his paranoia about the deep state, Donald Trump has disappeared into the fog of his own conspiracy theories," declared the Times´ Maureen Dowd. "Paranoia seizes Trump´s White House," reported Politico, noting the suspicion that "career intelligence operatives are working to undermine the new president." Actually, they were.

Special prosecutors, investigators, and counsels are usually a bad idea. They are admissions that constitutionally mandated institutions don’t work — and can be rescued only by supposed superhuman moralists, who are without the innate biases inherent in human nature. The record from Lawrence Walsh to Ken Starr to Patrick Fitzgerald suggests otherwise. Originally narrow mandates inevitably expand — on the cynical theory that everyone has something embarrassing to hide. Promised “short” timelines and limited budgets are quickly forgotten. Prosecutors search for ever new crimes to justify the expense and public expectations of the special-counsel appointment. Soon the investigators need to

Franken announced last Thursday that he would be resigning “in the coming weeks” after eight different women accused him of groping or forcibly kissing them. “The timing of Franken’s resignation remains unclear, as is his motive in delaying it,” New York Magazine’s Ed Kilgore noted at the time. Franken has yet to offer any more specificity about when he’s going to follow through in resigning. Franken’s office did not return multiple requests for comment on the subject. Franken begrudgingly offered his resignation after 35 Democratic senators called on him to do so, three weeks after he was first accused

President Trump attacked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) in a sexually suggestive tweet Tuesday morning that implied Gillibrand would do just about anything for money, prompting a swift and immediate backlash. “Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Charles E. Schumer and someone who would come to my office ´begging´ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” the president wrote. “Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”

Margaret Thatcher was born one. So were predecessor Prime Ministers Benjamin Disraeli and William E. Gladstone. Diana, the princess of Wales, too. Also William Pitt, who presided over the British victory in the French and Indian War and lent his name to Pittsburgh. And, according to some university authorities four decades ago, me as well. We were all born commoners. But — despite what newspapers, websites and television stations on both sides of the Atlantic have reported with wonder and wild-eyed delight — Meghan Markle, the actor who is to marry Prince Harry, is not a commoner. She’s an American, and

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) faced criticism for saying that President Donald Trump “slut-shamed” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) with a non-sexual insult, Tuesday. After President Donald Trump made a post on Twitter claiming that Sen. Gillibrand “would do anything” for campaign contributions, Sen. Warren made her own post accusing Trump of “slut-shaming.” “Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand?” asked Sen. Warren in her post. “Do you know who you’re picking a fight with? Good luck with that, @realDonaldTrump. Nevertheless, #shepersisted.” Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand? Do you know who you´re picking a fight with? Good

Alabama is one of the most reliably Republican states in the country. The last time a Democrat was elected was in 1992, and no Democrat has won more than 40 percent of the vote in a Senate race there since 1996. The closest election in recent memory was in 2002, when Jeff Sessions won re-election by a razor-thin margin of 19 points. Sen. Richard Shelby has won his last three elections by 35 points, 30 points and 28 points, respectively. So it takes a special kind of stupid to pick a candidate who can lose to a Democrat in Alabama.

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski is still fired up about President Trump’s tweet mocking Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and took her frustrations out on first lady Melania Trump and first daughter Ivanka Trump. “[Trump] should have apologized for being a sexist pig,” Brzezinski said. “And the women around him, his wife, who has a platform against cyber bullying, that’s a joke. That’s the saddest thing I’ve ever seen.” Brzezinski then shifted her attention to Ivanka Trump, “Who came to Washington… to develop a platform for women,” but has stood by her father. “Go home. You’re doing nothing if you stand

The Alabama Supreme Court has reportedly stayed a lower court’s order to election officials that would have required the preservation of voting records in Tuesday’s Senate special election. A circuit judge on Monday ordered election officials to set voting machines to save all digital ballot images, which would preserve voting records in the event of a recount. Alabama´s AL.com said Tuesday morning that the state´s Supreme Court had blocked the order.

From America’s Catholic bishops to prominent Christian pastor Jim Wallis, congressional Republicans’ push for an overhaul of the tax code has been called nothing less than ungodly. The debate about tax rates and income numbers has taken on pointedly religious overtones, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, citing Pope Francis and St. Augustine in attacking the bill and saying it would signify Armageddon. Mr. Wallis led a protest against the tax plan at the Hart Senate Office Building, reading Bible verses before he was escorted away by Capitol Police. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops released a lengthy
