  • Tucker Carlson Lets Loose on 'Hypocritical' Media over Bannon

    PJ Media ^ | 08-19-2017 | Michael van der Galien
    On his Fox News show yesterday evening, Tucker Carlson went after the hypocritical media who targeted Steve Bannon from the first day he was brought on board of Donald Trump's presidential campaign until yesterday when the president finally gave them Bannon's scalp. "The funny thing is, that in some important ways, Steve Bannon was more traditionally liberal than the liberals who spent the last year shrieking for his head,” Carlson said. "Not that you would know that from the coverage, everything is identity politics now, so his ideological opponents attacked Bannon from the very beginning as a bigot." And then:...

    Steve is a student of history, political history and the history of applied psychology. He's also a former Goldman Sachs insider. Steve knows the dark underbellies of the entire planet. His strongest desire is to undo the bureaucratic state, the "Deep State" period. Steve knows The Art of War. If he has left the White House, then it's because he knows he can do more damage to the swamp from outside. Certainly since what he knows from the inside now. Steve always said he'd be there no more than 1 year. Thus, he learned faster than was expected. This was...
  • Steve Bannon Is Overrated

    New York Times ^ | August 18, 2017 | MATTHEW CONTINETTI
    The White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon’s departure was widely applauded, and not only by the Washington establishment Mr. Bannon has spent a career excoriating. After the news broke, traders at the New York Stock Exchange “literally cheered,” according to a CNBC report. Yet the reaction was not uniformly positive. Supporters of Mr. Trump’s America First nationalism worried that Mr. Bannon’s exit might sever the ties between the president and his electoral base. “Any move to fire Bannon,” wrote the editor of the pro-Trump website American Greatness in recent days, “is more dangerous to the future of the Trump...

    Axios ^ | August 19, 2017 | Mike Allen, Jonathan Swan
    Bannon didn't bother to go to work yesterday. He knew it was over. At the end, Trump was beyond fed up, viewing Bannon as a self-aggrandizer who had built a personal narrative as the grand puppetmaster. "Who the f**k does this guy think he is?" Trump has said incredulously to associates. Axios' Jonathan Swan tells me it's no surprise Trump didn't issue a farewell message on Friday: The president can't stand Bannon at the moment. (Trump tweeted a belated "Thanks S" about Bannon on Saturday morning.) But few people are ever really gone from Trumpworld, and we bet it won't...

    Axios' Jonathan Swan hears Bannon has told friends he sees a massive opening to the right of Fox News, raising the possibility that he's going to start a network. - Bannon's friends are speculating about whether it will be a standalone TV network, or online streaming only. - Before his death in May, Roger Ailes had sent word to Bannon that he wanted to start a channel together. Bannon loved the idea: He believes Fox is heading in a squishy, globalist direction as the Murdoch sons assume more power. - Now he has the means, motive and opportunity: His chief...

    A defiant Steve Bannon declared the Trump presidency he had campaigned for was over as he vowed to carry on the fight after being ousted as the White House chief strategist. Within hours of leaving his office, Mr Bannon was back at Breitbart, the right wing website he ran, presiding over the evening news conference. In interviews he made it clear he was not going quietly as he rounded on those he held responsible for his departure. “The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over," he told the Weekly Standard, a right-wing newspaper “We still have a...

    “The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over,” Bannon said Friday, shortly after confirming his departure. “We still have a huge movement, and we will make something of this Trump presidency. But that presidency is over. It’ll be something else. And there’ll be all kinds of fights, and there’ll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over.” Bannon says that he once confidently believed in the prospect of success for that version of the Trump presidency he now says is over. Asked what the turning point was, he says, “It’s the Republican establishment. The...

    Steve Bannon is on his way out at the White House – but the fiery, anti-establishment conservative who helped Donald Trump win the presidency says he getting ready to wage his populist campaign from the outside. “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 told Bloomberg on Friday. The outgoing White House chief strategist spent just over a year formally working for the president. On Friday, his job with Trump came...

    BRIDGEWATER, N.J. (AP) - House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said the departure of White House adviser Steve Bannon is "welcome news," but she is calling on President Donald Trump to fire additional staff. Pelosi said in a statement that Bannon's departure "doesn't disguise where President Trump himself stands on white supremacists and the bigoted beliefs they advance." Trump has said "both sides" are to blame for the clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, between white supremacists and counter-protesters last weekend. One woman protesting the far-right extremist groups died when a car drove into a crowd.....

    President Donald Trump’s decision to part ways with Steve Bannon can be understood as an effort to save his presidency after Charlottesville. It may turn out to be the beginning of the end for the Trump administration, the moment Donald Trump became Arnold Schwarzenegger. ... Bannon was not just Trump’s master strategist, the man who turned a failing campaign around in August 2016 and led one of the most remarkable come-from-behind victories in political history. He was also the conservative spine of the administration. His infamous whiteboard in the West Wing listed the promises Trump had made to the voters,...

    President Trump has told senior aides that he has decided to remove Stephen K. Bannon, the embattled White House chief strategist who helped Mr. Trump win the 2016 election, according to two administration officials briefed on the discussion. The president and senior White House officials were debating when and how to dismiss Mr. Bannon. The two administration officials cautioned that Mr. Trump is known to be averse to confrontation within his inner circle, and could decide to keep on Mr. Bannon for some time. As of Friday morning, the two men were still discussing Mr. Bannon’s future, the officials said....

    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...

    President Donald Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon is out at the White House, two administration officials told CNN on Friday. The President has privately stewed over Bannon in recent days, including Thursday night from his golf course in New Jersey. He was furious with his chief strategist after he was quoted in an interview with the American Prospect contradicting him on North Korea and asserting that he was able to make personnel changes at the State Department. He did not travel with the President during the first week of what White House officials described as a “working vacation” at Trump’s...
