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.

The Supreme Court agreed yesterday to hear a challenge to the third iteration of the Trump administration’s travel ban. It had been struck down by lower courts—a Hawaii district court and affirming Ninth Circuit—that seemed to place their hostility to the president above the law, which grants the chief executive clear discretion on such matters relating to immigration and national security. Back in February 2017, after the Ninth Circuit struck down the first version of the travel ban, Eric Posner, a liberal critic of both President Trump and his policy, recognized that the courts may be creating a “‘Trump exception’

Obama mocked Trump in 2011 for calling into question whether he was born in America. The state of Hawaii later released Obama’s longform birth certificate to put the matter to rest. Obama viciously mocked Trump for the controversy, before mocking the idea of Trump ever serving in the White House.(Snip)A month before the 2016 election, Obama mocked Trump’s campaign on “Jimmy Kimmel.” Obama read a tweet from Trump saying that Obama “will go down as perhaps the worst president in the

Day One of a government shutdown, filled with increasingly angry finger pointing from both Democrats and Republicans, appeared to produce little Saturday in terms of a potential solution for the impasse on how to fund the government. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell insisted that a vote to break a Democratic filibuster on a short-term spending bill to reopen the government would happen by 1 a.m. Monday.

Senate Democrats have blocked a bill to keep the federal government running and fund the Children’s Health Insurance Program for the next six years. They have, that is, partially shut the government down. They have taken this step not because of any strong objection to provisions of the funding bill but because it omits a provision they want: an amnesty for illegal immigrants who came to our country as minors. Most Republicans, including President Trump, favor this amnesty as well, but the parties have been unable to agree on what other policies, such as restrictions on follow-on immigration from the

This may seem like an odd moment for saying so, but a year into the presidency of Donald Trump, I’m elated. Trump was not my first or even second choice for president, but a full two years ago I predicted he would win. I also predicted he’d be a progressive president, which explained why I was not among his supporters and why I am so pleased now. Expecting Progressive Trump was a reasonable assumption. Trump supported the 2009 stimulus, the auto bailouts and the bank bailouts. He’d recently left the Democratic Party and had raised a ton of money for the

Every morning, it seems, President Trump’s most determined opponents awake to find out what sort of obnoxious, fact-challenged, puerile, norm-breaking thing he has offered that day and say to themselves: “Oh, that’s nothing.

With the countdown clock ticking, a divided Congress is racing to reach a compromise in order to prevent a government shutdown by midnight Friday. Republicans control the Senate but they still need 60 votes in order to break a filibuster. "When you only have 51 votes in the Senate, then you have to have Democrat support in order to keep the government — to fund the government," OMB Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters during a White House press briefing Friday. The White House is preparing for what some officials are dubbing a “Schumer shutdown," Mulvaney said. If that happens, it would be the first

President Trump reminded Republicans on Thursday how easily he could explode his party’s carefully crafted messaging strategy, signaling how difficult it will be to stay unified in the face of Democratic attacks in a challenging midterm election environment. The House ultimately approved a short-term spending package in an evening vote after Republicans fell in line. The legislation advanced to the Senate, where it faced an uncertain fate because of opposition from both parties; passage requires a supermajority of 60 votes and Democrats are vowing to filibuster. But Trump nearly upended the GOP´s whole strategy. Republicans in Congress were set to blame Democrats

It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party.

(Snip) According to information relayed to Senator Ron Johnson, the period of time the FBI has “lost” is from December 14th, 2016 to May 17th, 2017, the exact day that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was assigned to lead the Russia collusion probe.

Question: Do you think Donald Trump spends more time thinking about Hillary Clinton than Hillary Clinton spends thinking about Donald Trump? Sure does seem like it. The other day, President Trump was discussing Russia at a press conference with the prime minister of Norway, when he suddenly announced that Clinton “was not for a strong military and Hillary, my opponent, was for windmills, and she was for other types of energy that don’t have the same capacities at this moment certainly.” Yeah, it didn’t make any sense. But he really can’t seem to get past her. Recently while promoting tax

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) questioned President Donald Trump’s new campaign ad saying Democrats “will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants” if they continued the shutdown. Ryan said, “They are certainly not helping us keep the government open. They are certainly not helping us get to a solution on immigration. When you shut down the government you stop negotiating on immigration reform. They’re complicity with not getting things done.” He added, “I’m not going to comment. I just saw that. I don’t know if that’s necessarily productive. It’s no

Immigrants entering the United States illegally through the southern border are quietly being relocated to different parts of the country on commercial flights, high-ranking Homeland Security officials told Judicial Watch this week. In the last few days alone, groups of illegal aliens boarded planes at airports in Texas and Arizona accompanied by a taxpayer-funded government escort in civilian clothes to avoid drawing attention. The first flight originated at Valley International Airport in Harlingen, Texas and was bound for Minneapolis. (Snip) The illegal aliens wear red HHS wrist bands and receive “the gold glove treatment,” according to a veteran federal official,

The burn continues. What follows are 138 years of scientific records tracing the human transformation of Earth’s climate. The bold pink line up top represents 2017, the third-hottest on record. The only years to exceed it—2015 and 2016—occurred amid a powerful El Nino weather pattern that ripped heat from the Pacific Ocean into the atmosphere. In the absence of El Nino, the swelter of 2017 was unprecedented.

There’s a ghost haunting Elizabeth Warren as she ramps up for a possible 2020 presidential bid and a reelection campaign in Massachusetts this year: her enduring and undocumented claims of Native American ancestry. Warren says now, as she has from the first days of her public life, that she based her assertions on family lore, on her reasonable trust in what she was told about her ancestry as a child. “I know who I am,” she said in a recent interview with the Globe. But that self-awareness may not be enough, as her political ambitions blossom.

Comic book readers are apparently not fans of progressive politics—a fact no more evident in Marvel’s decision to cancel every single one of its comics that has been nominated by the LGBTQ advocacy group, GLAAD. In December, the publisher announced its decision to cancel many of its comics, citing poor sales. LGBTQ, feminist, and social justice-themed comics involving stories that revolved around Black Lives Matter, illegal immigration, and LGBTQ issues were among those to end up on the chopping block.

Adam Schiff, reputedly a champion leaker from the House Intelligence Committee when it came to Russiagate material, suddenly thinks Ignorance is Bliss when it comes to the FISA warrant used to spy on the Trump campaign. Appearing on CNN, he tried to justify keep the 4 page memo that reportedly exposes the individuals who acted as part of a cabal to undermine the Trump campaign with help from NSA spying, and then pushed the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory as part of the “insurance policy.” Americans are too ignorant, you see. Do you think Democrats are starting to panic? (Video) Rush
