  • Vanity: Sarah Palin’s Divorce and Things to Ponder

    09/09/2019 2:54:33 PM PDT · by CondoleezzaProtege · 386 replies
    Monitoring Governor Palin’s pre-ascent to the national political scene was one of the stories that prompted my joining FR while in college. I remember Free Republic being one of the few places online (along with Glenn Beck’s show, to his credit) to profile the rising star governor: her successes navigating Alaska’s international corporate oil scene, her carrying a Down Syndrome baby to term, and before anybody in the media or even GOP establishment knew who she was — her qualifications as a viable for runningmate for John McCain. I stayed up all night before the day of the announcement, praying...

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently sought advice from former White House adviser Steve Bannon on entering the Kansas Senate race next year. The talk between the nation’s top diplomat and Trump’s former campaign chairman was described to the Washington Examiner by a source who spoke with Bannon and by a second source briefed by two people close to Pompeo. The former White House strategist “claimed that Pompeo was leaning towards a run,” said the source who spoke with Bannon. The source briefed by people close to Pompeo said one of them was uneasy about Pompeo speaking with the outcast...

    Well here’s the game and right now we are converging on a point and they understand this. We could take the whole thing down. We can take, the whole thing’s built on a house of sand… If they [China] devalue their currency they are just going to flood more out. They got $3 trillion of reserves and trust me, in a New York second that thing would flood out in a second. That’s what their own people think about their economy. We’ve allows these guys to push us around. We’ve allowed these guys to take the South China Sea… This...

    11/21/16 Donald Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon contacted Tulsi Gabbard to arrange Monday’s meeting with the president-elect...Many in the media raised their eyebrows when the news broke that Trump was meeting at Trump Tower Monday morning with Hawaii’s Democratic congresswoman. But for those who know Bannon best, there was no surprise at all. Bannon, who hates the entrenched two-party system, has long admired Gabbard. She’s an Iraq War veteran with an independent streak. Bannon, a navy veteran, was drawn to her when she began publicly excoriating the Obama administration over its plan to defeat ISIS. “He loves Tulsi Gabbard. Loves...

    Donald Trump has not ruled out asking former White House strategist Steve Bannon to help run his 2020 presidential campaign, according to a new book about the Trump administration. Bannon has recently been in Europe, seeking to boost populism across the continent. But judging by The Best People: Trump’s Cabinet and the Siege on Washington, a book by Alexander Nazaryan of Yahoo News which will be published next week, he could soon be on his way back to Washington. The Guardian obtained a copy. Like Michael Wolff’s pair of books about the Trump campaign and White House, The Best People...

    ROME — When Stephen K. Bannon was still heading Breitbart News, he went to the Vatican to cover the canonization of John Paul II and make some friends. High on his list of people to meet was an archconservative American cardinal, Raymond Burke, who had openly clashed with Pope Francis.In one of the cardinal’s antechambers, amid religious statues and book-lined walls, Cardinal Burke and Mr. Bannon — who is now President Trump’s anti-establishment eminence — bonded over their shared worldview. They saw Islam as threatening to overrun a prostrate West weakened by the erosion of traditional Christian values, and viewed...

    Bannon planned to teach the art of his brand of politics at the school. Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon’s plans for a far-right nationalist school have been halted by Italian authorities. Bannon hoped to run the school out of an ancient monastery near Rome, but officials say they are revoking rights to the grounds for failure to maintain the site and pay fees. In a statement released Friday, Gianluca Vacca, an official with Italy’s cultural ministry, said that it was the government’s “duty” to revoke the rights to the Certosa de Trisulti monastery that the Human Dignity Institute,...

    Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has pledged to unite Europe’s far-right into an international alliance of populists, and the European Parliamentary elections will be the first test of whether his strategy is bearing fruit. Leading political scientist Ivan Krastev has argued that Bannon’s form of populism is “likely to be the major alternative to liberalism in the coming decades.”

    The election [May 23] of 170 part-time dilettantes from the eurosceptic Left and Right might shake up French or Italian politics. It will change absolutely nothing in the governing structure of the EU. Trumpian ideologue Steve Bannon deems the European Parliament vote this week to be “one of the most important elections ever” but he has never tangled in earnest with Germano-European deep state. The EU’s permanent machinery will reassert iron control once the noise has subsided.

    Speculation has been mounting in France over the role former U.S. presidential aide Steve Bannon is playing in the European election. The ruling party of President Emmanuel Macron has expressed unease over Bannon’s support for the leader of the far-right party Rassemblement National (National Rally), Marine Le Pen. The head of Macron's La Republique En Marche (LREM) campaign, Stéphane Séjourné, tweeted that Bannon was behind “an attack on the sovereignty of the election... it makes you want to throw up.” Nathalie Loiseau, who heads the LREM candidate list for the elections, said, “[Bannon] does not even hide his desire to...

    The champion of Donald Trump’s “America First” agenda, who was invited to speak at the National Front party congress in northern France by Marine Le Pen, spoke only about her 28-year old niece at their joint press conference. “She is not simply a rising star on the right in France. She’s one of the most impressive people in the entire world,” Bannon, an American nationalist who ran the right-wing Breitbart News, told reporters, without mentioning his host Marine Le Pen. Bannon met Marion, who temporarily withdrew from politics after her aunt’s presidential election defeat last May, at the CPAC conservative...

    The House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday will vote on a resolution that would authorize subpoenas relating to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report. If passed, the Committee would subpoena President Donald Trump's former Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, former Communications Director Hope Hicks, former White House Counsel Don McGahn, former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, and McGhan's former Chief of Staff Ann Donaldson, the Daily Mail reported. The decision comes after House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and five other Democratic Committee Chairmen sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr formally requesting the full Mueller report.

    To shoot 'The Brink', an illuminating new documentary about former Trump strategist Steve Bannon, director Alison Klayman embedded herself with his entourage for a year, beginning in October, 2017 and finishing just after the 2018 midterm elections. Klayman captured extraordinarily candid moments from Bannon, and the film colours in and rounds out the black-and-white one-dimensionality with which he has often been depicted in the media. Like anyone, Bannon is complex... What he does genuinely seem to believe is that America is at an inflection point in its history, a Fourth Turning, in the parlance of sociologist Talcott Parsons, a foundational...

    Democratic presidential hopefuls Sen. Kamala Harris of California and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke stand the best chance of giving President Donald Trump a tough fight during the 2020 election, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon told CNBC on Friday. Bannon, who said he doesn’t expect Trump to lose in 2020, said he would put the two Democrats on a combined ticket with Harris running for president and O’Rourke for vice president. They would be “a way to mobilize their base and give it their best shot,” he told “Squawk Box. ” Harris, a self-described “progressive prosecutor” who served...

    Right-wing Christian groups in the United States spent at least $50 million (€56 million) on supporting far-right activists and campaigns in Europe in recent years, according to an investigative report. Publicly available financial filings showed 15 conservative non-profit organizations spent some $51 million in Europe from 2008 to 2017, the report by UK-based openDemocracy found.

    Following the submission of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and the subsequent summary showing that President Trump and his campaign did not collude with Russia, former White House adviser Steve Bannon said the president will “go full animal” against his political enemies. In an interview with Yahoo! News over the weekend, Bannon predicted that the president will "come off the chains" and will use the Mueller report findings against opponents especially if they demand additional documents.
