"Steve Really Hijacked Breitbart": The Right-Wing
Site´s Staff Confronts a Post-Bannon Landscape

Vanity Fair, by Tina Nguyen

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/13/2018 4:26:39 AM

The Breitbart Embassy is closed. If anything symbolized the end of an era for the scrappy, youthful crew of Breitbart News, it was the loss of Steve Bannon’s grand Capitol Hill town house. Once the de facto headquarters of Breitbart’s legendary ragers, it had more recently become the decorous nerve center for Bannon’s attempt to do the D.C. power-player thing—fete Washingtonians with Dean & DeLuca canapes and hold them captive with his megalomania. But when Bannon stepped down from Breitbart earlier this week after he seemed unable to outrun the comments he had made about Donald Trump Jr., among other things,

Breitbart is the target of many for its honest, take-no-prisoners reporting.

They were the one breaking the stories about the INVASION taking place on the border while everyone else had their heads in the sand...

The Radio end of things is THRIVING. The reporting is certainly miles ahead and timely while a lot of news sites and agregators put out articles without discussion and analysis.

Bannon may have said things that we insulting to Trump family members who were not elected, and rubbed many the wrong way. He was certainly a THORN in the side of the RINOcrats and DC Establishment who was pretty well OUT OF TOUCH with the pulse of the American conservative base.

With our without Steve, the operation will continue and there are those who do noe want the controversial topics discussed lest they get exposed as frauds.....

Breitbart is bigger than one person. It will live on. Bannon sounds like a real piece of work. The more I learn about him, the happier I am he is out of "power".

With due respect for the Breitbart staff who took over after Andrew died and Bannon´s leadership in that vein, as someone who was "there" when John Nolte first announced a little merger between himself and others at a little blog called Libertas (conservative-in-Hollywood culture) and a dynamic New Media calling itself Big Hollywood, I have to say there is a grain of truth in the title of this piece. There IS an alt-Right: they are the decendents of the John C Calhoun school of ideology (they hate the US Constitution and they scorn conservatives) and because of Bannon, they found a home at Breitbart.

On top of that, Big Hollywood went from being a news site that featured not only the latest cultural movements in Hollywood, but sought out and supported Real Conservative actors/directors/producers who were fighting against the leftist activism of the progressive elites. AND they were seeking out NEW conservative actors/directors/producers that were seeking to find the wedge that would help turn the tide...

...but once Andrew died, it seemed everyone at Breitbart threw that out the window and turned it into a Stand In Line Gossip Rag.

Seriously, as much GOOD as Bannon may have done in his involvement with getting Trump elected (however it is you may want to merit that), Im really looking forward to seeing someone who wants to return Breitbart to the spirit that Andrew established there.

With an eye toward 2020, Sen. Elizabeth Warren yesterday tried to head off the ongoing controversy surrounding her claim of Native American ancestry instead of running from it — the way she did when the Herald first pressed her on the issue in 2012. But let’s be clear — the presidential campaign trail-ready speech she delivered before the National Congress of American Indians contained nothing new. In fact, much of it is straight from her 2012 playbook. “I get why some people think there’s hay to be made here. You won’t find my family members on any rolls, and I’m not

He preened with guns and knives on social media, bragged about shooting rats with his BB gun and got kicked out of school — in part because he had brought bullets in his backpack, according to one classmate. He was later expelled for still-undisclosed disciplinary reasons. The portrait of Nikolas Cruz, suspected of fatally shooting 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and wounding 15 others at his former school, is a troubled teen with few friends and an obsessive interest in weapons. Administrators considered him enough of a potential threat that one teacher said a warning

This Isn´t Normal

You´ve heard the phrase over and over again: "This isn´t normal." We´ve heard it about President Trump´s rhetoric, and his Twitter usage. We´ve heard it about his attacks on the media, and we´ve heard it about his legislative ignorance. We´ve heard it about his running commentary on the Mueller investigation, and we´ve heard it about his bizarre stream-of-consciousness interviews. There´s some truth to all of this. Trump has said some incredibly awful things (e.g. his comments on Charlottesville, Virginia, and Haitians). He´s not a predictable, stable genius. All of this "non-normality," however, has resulted in ... a relatively

To pay for highways, expanded tolls

Facing large debts that will be partly of his own making, thanks to last week’s spending bill, President Trump must now find sources of funding for his next big priority: the infrastructure bill he has promised. The loudest voices so far among big business and the environmental lobby have argued for more than doubling the federal gas tax. But on Tuesday, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao expressed skepticism, stating that the tax has a “very regressive impact” on low-income citizens and that a gas tax hike “is not ideal.” Chao is right about this, but there’s a stronger argument still against relying

WASHINGTON - California officials and clean air advocates are increasingly concerned the Trump administration may attempt to unravel a key program to drive down greenhouse gas emissions from automobile fleets while also jeopardizing the ability of California and other states to set pollution standards stronger than federal rules. Backed by automakers, Trump officials are in talks with their California counterparts to weaken tough vehicle tailpipe standards approved by the Obama administration. The standards are aimed at reducing greenhouse gases, but could also help reduce emissions that cause smog and particulate

We Should Care About What

A lot of Americans watching the volleys of memos and the Trump-Russia probe must be asking: Who the heck is Carter Page? You see the former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser in news footage -- smiling when he shouldn´t. His name appears in the infamous dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele on behalf of the Democratic Party and the Hillary Clinton campaign. A secret warrant to surveil Page, based in part on that dossier, is the subject of the Republican House Intelligence Committee memo declassified last week. News profiles of Page portray him as an incautious mediocrity, choosing to appear

Scandal, Corruption, Lawbreaking —

The FISA-gate, Clinton emails, and Uranium One scandals are sort of reaching a consensus. Many things quite wrong and illegal were done by both Hillary Clinton and her entourage and members of the Obama agencies and administration — both the acts themselves and the cover-ups and omissions that ensued. Remember, in the FISA-gate scandal such likely widespread criminal behavior was predicated on two premises: 1) certainty of an easy Clinton victory, after which the miscreants would be not only excused but probably rewarded for their zeal; 2) progressive hubris in which our supposedly moral betters felt it their right,

Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder raised eyebrows last week when he said that he may run for office, as in the Oval Office, and he’d make his final decision by the end of the year. Given the trail of abuse and misconduct he left in his wake at the Justice Department, the opposing ads pretty much write themselves. His time in the Obama administration was plagued with corruption that left a stain on the Justice Department, and he resigned with a dark cloud of scandal hovering over him. Holder is the first Cabinet appointee to be held in contempt

New Controversy Rages: Do Official

Shouldn’t official portraits of America’s presidents and first ladies attempt to resemble them? The point of these artistic exercises might seem archaic in the modern age, where photography can take the place of the artist. That might be the impulse that drove the portrait choices made for Michelle Obama’s remembrance, unveiled earlier this morning in a ceremony at the Smithsonian:(Snip for video)The audience erupted in applause, but the head-scratching began in earnest almost immediately afterward. Who is the woman in the portrait? It only bears a generic resemblance to the former First Lady, if that, HuffPost reporter Sam Stein noted: Sam

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said she thought it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to “get by the macho atmosphere” dominating the 2016 presidential election. CNN´s Poppy Harlow asked Ginsburg at an event at Columbia University Sunday to clarify her comments last year that sexism was a “major factor” in the election. “I think it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to get by the macho atmosphere prevailing during that campaign, and she was criticized in a way I think no men would have been criticized,” Ginsburg said. “I think anyone who watched that campaign unfold would answer the same

A significant part of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s basis for investigating the Trump campaign’s Russia ties is looking more and more like a political hit job carried out by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign. Her campaign’s fingerprints are on at least three separate pieces of information fed to the FBI, including the Christopher Steele dossier Republicans say formed the basis of a secret warrant obtained to spy on Trump campaign associate Carter Page. A former State Department official confirmed on the record Thursday that Clinton associates were funneling information to Steele as he was compiling

President Trump’s personal lawyer admitted on Tuesday that he paid off a porn star who allegedly had an affair with his boss — but insisted that the payout was his own money and not connected to the Trump Organization or the presidential campaign. Michael D. Cohen said in a statement to The New York Times that he paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 in 2016 — but did not give the newspaper a further explanation about why the payment was made. “Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,”

Democrats immediately politicized the Florida school shooting that left at least 17 people dead on Wednesday and demanded gun control legislation, even before it was known how the shooter got his gun and whether any proposed legislation would have stopped it. Some Democrats blamed Republicans for Wednesday’s tragedy, without citing any evidence whatsoever. “Republicans should pray for forgiveness, for not only their complacency and dereliction of duty, but in contrition for the men, women and children we continue to lay to rest because of senseless gun violence and the cowardly inaction from Congress,”

Student leaders at a high school in the San Francisco Bay Area have decided that the national anthem is racist and outdated and have banned it from school rallies. According to multiple area news outlets, the Associated Student Body at California High School in San Ramon made that decision based on a phrase in the rarely-played third verse. “It was brought to our attention that the national anthem’s third verse is outdated and racially offensive,” Ariyana Kermanizadeh wrote in an open letter. “We had nothing but good intentions by removing the song so that we could be fully inclusive to our student

(Video) - Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney is running for the Senate in Utah. Three people with direct knowledge of the plan tell the Associated Press Romney will formally launch his campaign in a video on Thursday. His first public appearance as a Senate candidate is scheduled for Friday in Utah. The people who provided the information asked for anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about Romney´s plans in advance. Romney, who is 70, is seeking to replace 83-year-old Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch, who is retiring after more than 40 years in the U.S. Senate. The former Massachusetts governor

Washington - There is "ample evidence" that the Trump campaign colluded with Russians, but only special counsel Robert Mueller can decide if it´s enough to prove a crime beyond a reasonable doubt, the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Wednesday. "There is already, in my view, ample evidence in the public domain on the issue of collusion if you're willing to see it," Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif, told reporters at a newsmaker breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. "If you want to blind yourself, then you can look the other way."

Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday night that members of his party won’t revise their countermemo, despite requests from the White House to do so. “We’re not going to make any revisions to it. The only question is what redactions will be made. And obviously we’d like to keep those to a minimum,” Schiff told reporters. “The White House has a different interest. I think their interest is in redacting anything that doesn’t reflect well on the White House,” Schiff added.

FBI Director James Comey held a secret Oval Office meeting with President Barack Obama two weeks before Trump’s inauguration and may have deliberately misled Congress about it, according to an email sent by National Security Advisor Susan Rice that GOP Sens. Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham partially unclassified.The meeting — which Comey never previously disclosed to Congress — occurred in the White House on Jan. 5, 2017.

Scott wrote this morning about the extraordinary email that National Security Advisor Susan Rice wrote to herself at 12:15 on January 20, 2017, within minutes of when President Trump was inaugurated. It must have been her last act, more or less, before she vacated the White House. So obviously the email was important to her. But why would it be important to send an email to herself (the only person copied was one of her aides)? If you read the email, which Scott posted along with Senator Grassley’s letter to Rice, it is obvious that it is a CYA memo. But the question is, whose A is being C’d?
