Steve Bannon Tag

Chad Pergram: "Bannon first figure to be found guilty on contempt of Congress charges since Attorney General Richwrd Kleindienst and Watergate burglar G. Gordon Liddy were convicted in 1974"...

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey faced another round of questioning in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. A few moments stuck out to me: Sen. Da Nang Dick Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) told Zuckerberg to ban Steve Bannon and Dorsey admitted it was a mistake for the platform to ban The New York Post's story on Hunter Biden's laptop.

The Alternative for Germany (AfD) party has invited Steve Bannon to speak at the country's parliament next month, the Hamburg-based news weekly Der Spiegel disclosed. "The AfD is planning a meeting for right-wing bloggers and writers at the Bundestag," the magazine reported. "The party has invited U.S. President Donald Trump's former chief strategist Steve Bannon."

President Donald Trump's former chief strategist Steve Bannon's plans to launch a foundation aimed at supporting populist and nationalist causes in Europe has triggered a sharp repose from Germany's establishment politicians and the country's mainstream media.  "German politicians want to aggressively counter US right-wing populist Steve Bannon's plans to support like-minded parties in the [2019] European election," reported German weekly Der Spiegel.

Stay classy, leftists! Philippe Reines, a former top aide to failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, tweeted out the contact information of the Black Swan bookstore in Richmond, VA. The owner, Nick Cooke, had the audacity to call the police when a woman harassed President Donald Trump's former advisor Steve Bannon and called him a "piece of trash."

I guess this was inevitable. A website that played a large role in creating momentum for Donald Trump to win the Republican nomination, and to a much lesser extent the presidency, could not continue with someone at the helm who now was persona non grata with Donald Trump and his family. Either Brietbart News had to change, or Steve Bannon had to go.

The Bannon v. Trump v. Bannon drama just got a bit more interesting. Axios is reporting that Bannon has clarified the Woolff book controversy and has released a statement to Axios regarding his regrets about not responding to the "inaccurate reporting" of his quoted remarks. From Axios:
Battered by the backlash from Michael Wolff's book, Steve Bannon is trying to make amends with the Trump family, providing a statement to Axios that expresses "regret" to President Trump and praises his son, Donald Trump Jr.

In her post "Bannon v. Trump v. Bannon," Kemberlee laid out the latest White House drama that has the left salivating at the thought of managing to undo the 2016 election. The drama started, as Kemberlee wrote, with an "article published in The Guardian Wednesday lifted passages from a new book ‘Fire and Fury’ by Michael Wolff. Bannon was quoted heavily in the book, calling the infamous Trump Tower meeting with Russians 'treasonous'." One star of this latest batch of leftist hysteria has been White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.

This flame war between Trump and former aide Steve Bannon is something else. An article published in The Guardian Wednesday lifted passages from a new book 'Fire and Fury' by Michael Wolff. Bannon was quoted heavily in the book, calling the infamous Trump Tower meeting with Russians "treasonous."

It would be difficult to imagine a more wretched hive of incompetence and boobery than the California Republican Party leadership. From the amazing implosion of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) as a politician and human being, the initial support of a tax-raising proposition that was only rescinded after the rise of the Tea Party, and the continued lack of effective push-back against progressive shenanigans, California has become a one-party state (where our choices range from Midnight Blue to YInMn Blue in key, state-wide elections).

You knew this would happen, right? The media can't resist the urge to tie anything negative to Trump directly or by extension. The ridiculous thing about this is that it's a blatant nothing burger. The whole point is to plant an association in people's minds.

Former White House advisor Steve Bannon has declared war on Republican incumbents save one -- Ted Cruz. Joining Fox News' Sean Hannity Monday night, Bannon called Republican Sen. Corker's "hot mike" interview with the New York Times "unacceptable."
