The Trump Train runs over Steve Bannon

If you’ve ever played Red Dead Redemption, you probably lassoed people, thrown them on a railroad track, and watched a train run them over. It was an excellent way to deal with a posse of bounty hunters that went after you and lost. That is essentially what has happened to Steve Bannon. The Trump Administration laid into Bannon, not only saying he’s lost his mind, but also diminished the accomplishments Bannon claims.

Here’s the full statement:

Statement from the President of the United States

Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind. Steve was a staffer who worked for me after I had already won the nomination by defeating seventeen candidates, often described as the most talented field ever assembled in the Republican party.

Now that he is on his own, Steve is learning that winning isn’t as easy as I make it look. Steve had very little to do with our historic victory, which was delivered by the forgotten men and women of this country. Yet Steve had everything to do with the loss of a Senate seat in Alabama held for more than thirty years by Republicans. Steve doesn’t represent my base—he’s only in it for himself.

Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was. It is the only thing he does well. Steve was rarely in a one-on-one meeting with me and only pretends to have had influence to fool a few people with no access and no clue, whom he helped write phony books.

We have many great Republican members of Congress and candidates who are very supportive of the Make America Great Again agenda. Like me, they love the United States of America and are helping to finally take our country back and build it up, rather than simply seeking to burn it all down.

To many conservatives, this is a welcomed victory. To liberals, this is Russian conspiracy fodder. After all, Steve Bannon did just switch sides on the Russian Farce issue. So Trump can expect that headache for weeks to come. Donald Trump Jr. went even more personal because Bannon’s comments were aimed at him as well.

Ben Shapiro has an especially scathing response to Bannon.

Ben Shapiro Daily Wire: #WAR: Bannon Goes To War With Trump, Calls Trump-Russia Campaign Activities ‘Treasonous’

None of this is a surprise coming from a leech on the ass of power, a man who rode Michele Bachmann’s coattails to Sarah Palin’s coattails to Andrew Breitbart’s coattails to Donald Trump’s and the Mercer family’s coattails. It’s also not a shock from a fellow whose only contribution to the White House was apparently leaking regularly to reporters for The New York Times. Bannon’s an ambitious fellow, and his connection to power has now been reportedly cut off on both the monetary side (the going rumor has it that the Mercers aren’t funding his side projects anymore) and the political side (he’s not on good terms with the Trump White House, either). That means he has to build a brand of his own. So far, his branding isn’t going well — it turns out endorsing a credibly accused child molester and then utilizing your publication to dig up dirt on the accusers doesn’t do much for your Q rating. So now Bannon, who always had more balls than brains, is turning on the hand that fed him.

Bannon’s utterly full of crap on virtually every level, of course. He always has been. But his comments are going to cause a whole new round of headaches for the Trump administration, since the media have insisted from the outset that Bannon is far more important than he has ever actually been.
The Hill: Trump feud puts pressure on Bannon candidates

Great America Alliance (GAA), the super PAC that has operated as a vehicle for Bannon’s endorsement and sports a top Bannon ally as an advisor, issued a statement noting that Bannon and the group “did not always agree on candidates or issues.”

“Our top priority is supporting President Trump and advancing an America First agenda,” Ed Rollins, the group’s chairman, said in the statement. “Whether or not Bannon shares this priority, it won’t change our focus one bit.”

Great America Alliance’s statement could provide some cover for endorsed candidates who don’t want to be tied to Bannon right now or seen as opposing Trump.

Rep. Evan Jenkins (R-W.V.), who is facing Bannon-endorsed state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey in the primary, became the first candidate to publicly seize on the feud.

“After Steve Bannon’s vicious attacks on President Trump and his family, Patrick Morrisey should immediately disavow Bannon’s support,” Jenkins said in a statement Wednesday afternoon.

Bannon, through GAA, has also backed other candidates who will likely face similar questions. Arizona state Sen. Kelli Ward said in a statement that she remains committed to the Trump agenda and that Bannon “is only one of many high-profile endorsements.”

Final Thoughts

These events revealed that a lot of our assumptions about Steve Bannon were incorrect. He’s not a mastermind. He wasn’t that close to Trump. He’s not a Party Boss (although I mentioned that he sucked as one). Steve Bannon is just a brown-nosing sycophant and now he just got explosive diarrhea in his face. People won’t want to be around that stink, which is a welcomed victory for conservatives in 2018. People don’t want to read stink either, so we shall wait and see what happens to Breitbart.

    As much as you or Trump or others want to bad-mouth Bannon, his history is still out there and cannot be re-written.

    Trump nominated him for the Senior Advisor position after Bannon turned BrietBart.com into TrumpBart.com and went on the attack against any republican that dared to bow insufficiently low to Trump.

    Now Trump acts like Bannon was no help and unimportant to his campaign while Bannon and Breitbart was THE major web presence supporting Trump and continued to do so long after the inauguration.

    Your article shows me that you have chosen to “side” with Trump, ignoring truth, history, and decency.

    I have nothing nice to say about Bannon, but that does NOT mean that I support your revisionist history that repeats Trump’s WH revisions claiming that Bannon never held a significant post in the WH, that Bannon was NOT a significant contributor to Trump’s planning and execution in his early days. (Bannon was widely credited with having written Trump’s first travel ban EO for instance.)

    Now that Trump has chosen ot lash out at bannon, you and many others in the formerly-conservative media have decided to suspend your own experience in favor of Trump’s revised history, not realizing that in furthering Trump’s revised history against all Republican and conservative dissent, you are hardening the resolve of true conservatives to never again vote Republican and you are aiding Trump’s hostile takeover of the US Government and his attempts to intimidate all those that would oppose his dictatorship.

    I have nothing good to say about Bannon, but I will also not agree, admit, or go along with Trump’s revisionist history where Bannon was only ever a “water boy” and never a significant part of Trump’s campaign / Administration.

    The sooner Trump is impeached, the safer our Republic will be and the sooner our country can unite and return to greatness.

Charges being investigated in Las Vegas Shooting

Charges being investigated in Las Vegas Shooting

As noted on the January 12th article We still want answers Las Vegas Shooting investigation, a hearing was set to take place on January 16th to possibly unseal the exercised search warrants in connection to the Stephen Paddock, the only identified Las Vegas Shooting participant. This followup is being conducted as part of getting the Las Vegas Shooting back into the front page as the public awaits answers. People  want answers and it’s good that some members of the media are fighting for them. The hearing was part of a legal action brought fourth by members of the media, most notably the Las Vegas Review Journal. Also covering the hearing was Craig Fiegener, a reporter who has closely followed this story.

To briefly summarize the hearing, the media attorney said that we have a right see the unsealed search warrants. The LVMPD ended up resorting to revealing that because additional charges are being considered, the hearing should be done behind closed doors. So no decision was rendered as Judge Cadish will give the police time to file a brief. For now we wait another week and then some for answers. But until then we can speculate. At the mention of charges being investigated, all eyes are on the shooter’s girlfriend.

Criminal charges possible in Las Vegas shooting, lawyers say

https://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/shootings/criminal-charges-possible-in-las-vegas-shooting-lawyers-say/The hearing, before Clark County District Judge Elissa Cadish, related to local police search warrant records.

Metro’s initial argument was that Cadish did not have the authority to unseal the records because that authority should remain with the individual judges who initially ordered the records sealed. Cadish rejected that argument.

The only other evidence Metro submitted in support of keeping the records sealed was an FBI affidavit. Review-Journal attorney Maggie McLetchie argued that Metro could not make assertions on behalf of the FBI, then noted that federal authorities did not oppose the release of federal search warrants last week.

“The press has an important role in being able to get access to this warrant information and help the public understand what occurred in regard to what warrants law enforcement got, what came back and what the actual facts are,” McLetchie said in court. “The horrific incidents of 1 October were over three months ago. The public still has many, many questions.”

That’s when Metro attorneys suddenly asserted that the sealed documents were pertinent to possible charges.

Cadish said she wanted to read through the sealed documents and compare them with information that already has been made public. She indicated she would make a decision by Jan. 26.

Court claim puts attention on Las Vegas shooter’s girlfriend

https://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/shootings/court-claim-puts-attention-on-las-vegas-shooters-girlfriend/“It’s a very bold statement to say that criminal charges are going to be filed in this case when the only person whose name or inference has been put in the news is his girlfriend,” Las Vegas attorney Craig Drummond said. “I would hope they’re going to back it up. If they don’t, it will incite all of these conspiracy theorists even more.”

Drummond said it is possible authorities are looking at other people who may have not followed proper procedures when selling firearms to Stephen Paddock or others who may have helped him modify some of the weapons.

Defense lawyer Robert Langford speculated that if Danley knew of Paddock’s plans and somehow aided or abetted his actions, she would already have been charged.

Planned Parenthood providing sex-change hormones to children

Planned Parenthood providing sex-change hormones to children

Planned Parenthood, the agency that celebrated a banner year in 2017 after murdering over 321,000 unborn babies while pocketing nearly $544 million in taxpayer funds—occasionally making a few extra bucks on the side by selling their body parts—has announced their expansion plans for 2018.

No longer content with simply ending a life before it begins, the so-called women’s healthcare provider will be pursuing a new revenue source—hormone “sex-change” treatment FOR MINORS. And get this . . . it will be paid by taxpayers through Medicaid.

According to Planned Parenthood’s VP of Medical Affairs, Suzie Prabhakaran, “It was time for us to expand the care that we were providing to minors” because gender-confused youth might have difficulty in getting the hormones they seek from “judgmental” doctors.

In most cases, dispensing hormones to patients under 18 to treat so-called gender dysphoria requires a letter from a doctor or therapist, but Planned Parenthood has no such requirement. Company policy simply requires informed consent, which means that once the child acknowledges the risks, treatment is given.

In a story by a Sarasota, Florida TV station, Planned Parenthood reminded those under 18 that they needed a parent’s permission to receive treatment—a worthless disclaimer, considering their track record of fighting parental consent laws when it comes to abortion. And let’s not forget how Planned Parenthood skirted partial-birth laws in order to harvest baby body parts.

According to the American College of Pediatricians, conditioning children to believe that being transgendered is normal is essentially child abuse. Even if you accept the LGBT-radical belief in the fake-science of transgenderism, giving life-altering hormones to children causes serious irreversible side effects.

Real science has proven that abortion stops a beating heart, that most children grow out of gender dysphoria, and giving hormones to otherwise normal children damages them for life. But since when has Planned Parenthood—who advises parents to assume their child is LGBT—ever allowed science to get in the way of making a buck?

As if murdering unborn children wasn’t enough, this development is one more reason why Trump and the GOP must keep their promise to defund Planned Parenthood . . . I’m not holding my breath.

Jobless claims hit 45-year low, and mainstream media is silent

Jobless claims hit 45-year low and mainstream media is silent

The last thing mainstream media wants you to know is the country is doing very well economically. Stock prices are up. Lower tax rates means 164 major companies and rising have given back to their employees in the form of raises and bonuses. Jobless claims just hit a 45-year low.

Wait, you didn’t hear about that last item? That’s because mainstream media is virtually silent. They’re too busy talking about the President’s Tweets to spend any time reporting actual news.

U.S. Jobless Claims Plunge to Lowest Weekly Tally Since 1973

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-01-18/jobless-claims-in-u-s-plunge-to-lowest-weekly-tally-since-1973U.S. filings for unemployment benefits plummeted to the lowest level in almost 45 years in a sign the job market will tighten further in 2018, Labor Department figures showed Thursday.

The drop in claims shows that companies are increasingly holding on to their employees amid a shortage of skilled labor. Businesses are struggling to find workers to fill positions, particularly in manufacturing and construction, as cited in some anecdotes for the Federal Reserve’s Beige Book released Wednesday.

The most important factor during elections is the economy. More specifically, people vote based upon how well or poorly they and their families are doing financially. Unfortunately, mainstream media knows it’s not as simple as people checking their bank statements and counting their blessings. They can still be manipulated into believing they’re not doing as well as they really are or that the nation is on the verge of fiscal collapse based upon actions by the GOP and/or the President.

As a Federalist, I can say these things knowing I’m not spinning it in favor of the GOP. I’m not a Republican fanboy, but when things are going well based upon actions they are the Democrats take, it’s okay to give kudos. My allegiance is to the nation and the truth.

In this election year, the Democrats will utilize their puppets in the media to try to make as many people as possible believe things are really bad. It doesn’t matter that the economy is looking great. Perception trumps reality and mainstream media wants to change as many people’s perceptions as possible. We have to fight against that. Share news like this with as many people as you can. They need to know the truth to fight against the bias mainstream media tries to slap on them.
