Mark today on a calendar for it is was the first real battle in Steven Bannon’s civil war against American civilization.
Don’t be surprised: he told us a year ago, this was his aim:
It’s going to be an insurgent, center-right populist movement that is virulently anti-establishment, and it’s going to continue to hammer this city, both the progressive left and the institutional Republican Party.” (Washington Post, January 2016)
Forget Electoral College President Elects (ECPE) Trump. He is a leaky old bastard doing Bannon’s bidding: a convenient mouth to dump words in, the lead man in a Leni Riefenstahl reality show Bannon is producing. If you believe otherwise, you are going after the wrong man.
Bannon is good too.
Think about it. There are credible sources reporting that the Russians have ECPE balls out in a pay for peeing video, unassailable proof Jeff Sessions is a half crazy KKK loving racist, piles of documents proving the ECPE and most Cabinet nominees are as likely to be Kleptocrats as naught, and…. well, the sad list goes on ad nausea.
Despite the evidence, most are unable to do more than stumble about shell shocked stunned by the fact almost half of America believes the fake news bombs that fall from the ECPE hole. The rest of the resistance is running madly about with pellet guns trying to shoot the bombs down before they fall.
This is the chaos Bannon thrives in. Its a chaos where the madly brazen define the truth . Its the chaos of distraction by design, and so far its Bannon 1: Humanity 0.
We need to regroup and start focusing on impeaching the Trump ticket.
The stakes too large. They are no less high than the goals of Bannon’s favorite theorist, the uber repugnant Alexander Dugin, who is set on destroying the “present order of things…. of which the core could be described as human rights, anti-hierarchy, and political correctness — everything that is the face of the Beast, the Antichrist.”
This is not a war of words. It’s a fight for the very soul of America.
