Steve Bannon Interview: “Hobbits and Deplorables Should Hold Us All Accountable”…

President-elect Donald Trump’s top strategist sat for a rare radio interview Friday morning, urging conservative voters to ‘hold people accountable’ in the White House – including himself – as the new administration gets off the ground. (Audio Below)

Steve Bannon, Trump’s senior counselor said afterward that he specifically wants Trump’s base to hold his feet to the fire as he steers the president’s strategic ship through waters infested with Democrats and moderate Republicans alike.  “Deplorables and Hobbits should stay engaged and hold ALL of us accountable – including me”… (more)

    Can’t wait for the 20th. It will be great. Trump is heading to the WH to undo as much as he can before the parties. It will be a blitz of getting things undone. Tearing down government roadblocks. Time to up anchor and get the show on the road.

      Throughout this movement I have pictured Donald as the Captain of a ship like this:

      Call it the USS Deplorable, if you like.

      We were coming to stop the madness of the globalist dream/nightmare of world domination. Our enemies attacked him/us with everything they had, sending wave after wave to capsize us, sink us, destroy us. But after each wave there we were, still standing. Advancing. Closer and closer, with Captain Trump at the wheel yelling, “Full speed ahead!”

      Be warned, globalists: We have not yet begun to fight.

      I loved hearing from Bannon, but is was a shame the Matt couldn’t ask him any important questions regarding current events. You can tell Steve has massive discipline right now. He doesn’t want to make a single wave right now until Trump is sworn in, we won’t hear Steve opine on a G.D. thing except his brilliant “American Nationalists need to hold us accountable” message.

      I miss the days of Bannon speaking truth to power on Sirius, but he understands the how high the stakes are and he’s not risking his influence for media minutes. VERY SMART PATRIOT. We are so lucky to have him as the people’s rep in Trump’s cabinet.

      • Agreed, Mr. S. Bannon is a brilliant choice by P.E. Trump I am so glad that Mr. Bannon is part of the whole team chosen. I surly miss him on the radio, I just started listening to him a little over a year ago and learned so much from him. He was such a humanist, very respectful as well as knowledgeable. I must admit I get so angry at those that do not know him and try to smear him with their “repeated talking points” which are out an out lies about him. If they would just take time and listen to this “true American” that served his nation and actually continues to do so – at great personal/reputation cost, but that is the “nasty politics game,,,so glad we are attempting and succeeding to change that, and thank you again Sundance for that opportunity!

        I believe if he could skip the parties and get on with the business of righting the ship, he would. As it is, I expect him to make an appearance at the three balls, sleep a few hours and get right to work. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least, however, if he puts that pen to work before the festivities begin.

          I believe that this method – rapid delegitimization of Obama himself – is actually an excellent and very effective method to soften up Obama’s whirlwind of last-minute executive orders for complete removal.

          Obama’s false long form can be quickly shown by highly authoritative agencies to be a forgery. And that’s just the start. With each day in office, Trump will have more and more bargaining power, as the list of felonies committed by Obama and his people will grow and grow.

          The DNC can then decide if they want to use the First Black Felonious President as a human shield. Or let Trump do the job we elected him to do.

        “President-elect Trump has personally asked me to run the RNC beginning in 2017.
        I wanted to reach out to you first because you’re listed as a loyal grassroots donor who helped us win big last November.
        As a former Trump delegate and the Chairman of the Michigan GOP, I understand that grassroots leaders like you are the lifeblood of our Party. We won thanks to you.
        But the fight isn’t over. In fact, it’s never over. We can never sit back and get complacent because we won an election.
        We won because we never rested, we never gave up. Like me, you fought until the very end. And that’s the winning attitude I will bring to the RNC as your next chairman.
        But before I humbly accept the honor to serve our Party, I’m asking you to give us an early start on our 2017 investments by making an end-of-year contribution of $100, $65, $50, $35, or $15 to the RNC.
        Winning the election was just step one. Now it’s time to get to work and support President-elect Trump’s America First agenda and rebuild our country.
        But if you think the mainstream media was rough on us during the election, just wait until Trump officially becomes our president. We will face a never-ending onslaught of lies, attacks, and dirty tactics intended to divide us and distort our message.
        Thanks to your support, we were able to deliver our message straight to the American voter.
        And it never would’ve happened without the RNC’s investments in top-notch voter data, digital marketing efforts, unbeatable ground game, and communications team that relentlessly held the media responsible.
        My plan is not to let up one, single inch. We will continue to grow the winning program you and Reince built over the last four years.
        But I will need your help sustaining it. 2017 will be one of the most exciting years of our lives as Americans.
        This year you got to see our Party win. But in 2017, you’re going to see your COUNTRY win again!
        Please make an end-of-year contribution of $100, $65, $50, $35, or $15 before December 31 at 11:59 PM to help our Party keep winning.

        Thank you and God bless you,

First order of the day on January 3rd is to call your House Reps and DEMAND they VOTE NO on Paul Ryan for Speaker. The louder we are the more afraid they will get for we can bury the remaining RINOs one by one.
    Americans are NOT TO BE TRIFLED WITH REGARDING TRUMP’S AGENDA for that is why we voted for him. Those Congressmen that go against him go AGAINST THE WILL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE and they will feel our WRATH. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

        Rednecks are among the best and brightest patriots in the USA. They are not ignorant.

        Yet, your insistence that a letter to one’s employee (our Senators and congresspersons are, after all, servants to the people) must be both persuasive and proper, and that all should learn to write “non-redneck” persuasive and proper letters was offensive.

        While I certainly agree that letters are an excellent way to communicate to our legislators, it is the responsibility of legislators to read all constituent letters, whether or not they are “properly written” and it is the responsibility of the legislators to consider the opinions expressed by all constituents.

              Mark, just admit the “don’t go all redneck on them” was a dumb thing to say, that would discourage more letters rather than encourage more letters, and move on.

              “Ignorant rantings” as your later statement of what a redneck would write, speaks to the same issue.

              If those persons, redneck or not, must first take the time to “learn how to write” what is in your personal opinion, “a persuasive letter,” they might be discouraged from writing at all.

              Many “redneck” people are overworked, sometimes with more than one job, sometimes with children to care for too, and might be better encouraged to speak out by writing in their own styles and their own ways and in their own words.

              It is the “heart” in the letter, and the quantity of letters that will make the biggest difference.

              Legislators are not all geniouses but even they know a person who does not “write well” or doesn’t spell well, or who “rants” however “ignorantly” (your words) they might do so…

              Are voters. Voters who are paying attention.

              Your continual snark and adhominem attacks against me personally are clearly an indication that I hit a “sore spot” with you. Also an indication of your immaturity.

              If only those persons who have been “with Trump since 1970” (although your blog posts seem more libertarian than Trumpian) had a right to express themselves, would Trump be President-elect today?

              As for being ashamed, it is the one who considers rednecks as likely to write “ignorant rantings” that is the one who protests too much.

              As for what I choose to spend my time doing, that is my choice, as I retired early from a position teaching and running a department in a college. Thus I have the time. And since you claim to be a fellow redneck, I have the inclination to teach.

              I see that you are not averse to coming back time and again to respond with your rantings, and adhominem attacks. (Much like Democrats have often done during the campaign.)

              Now, before you claim I attacked you in adhominem fashion, remember that I gave clear reasons for my displeasure with your comments. I did not call you names. I said that your comments showed presumption and bigotry, and that an expression you chose was disrespectful to Christians (several commenters agreed) which caused me to “eliminate you as a voice i would respect.”

              I did not tell you to stick anything “where the sun don’t shine,” I did not claim you are an idiot (twice!)

              But keep responding, Mark. Apparently you are reading, which will sink in. You will learn.

            I think you are a bigot.

            The word “redneck” has some interesting history or mythology. Some say it means the farmer (or other outside worker) who gets his neck sunburned/red in the course of his labor. (My grandad, a farmer, said this.) Some say it refers to a WVA coal-miner rebellion when some wore red scarves to identify themselves to their own side in the fight.

            Either way, it has come to mean “the common man/woman” and nowadays is usually said about southerners, I think. I don’t find it disparaging though. The “salt of the earth” people. The common-sense people. The workers, and the backbone of our culture. That’s how I see it. My people.

              The term “redneck” was a derogatory term used to describe Irish slaves that were put to work in the fields in the Carolina’s. These Irishmen were cheap and plentiful (a lot cheaper than a black slave), but being from Ireland, they were not used the heat and humidity, so they (along with the native americans) did not work out so well. You have to remember also that there were many black landowners in the Carolina’s during that time, and they owned both white and black slaves.

KBR is attacking your arguments respectively and did not call you a bigot (she was attacking your bigotry in your posts) an idiot, etc. Attack the argument, not the arguer. Your premise is a good one, just worded in such an ironic manner. You want us to “not go all redneck” in our correspondence, which implies a pejorative.

If you get into an discussion with someone online you don’t know and they throw insults at you, I take the high road by either ignoring the insults or pointing them out as an unsupported argument. If they can’t tell you why you are stupid, they lose. Every time.

                  Attack the argument, not the arguer. It’s a simple strategy I use that will frustrate my opponents in discussions. It really is a satisfying way to win an argument.

      In the meanwhile, I believe it is more likely the numbers of strong appeals on a given subject that most effectively direct the actions and/or fears of the legislators.

      I read a Salon article (yes, I read the opposition occasionally) wherein a Southern congressman was saying that his friendship with Paul Ryan was something he received quite a lot of negative mail about, and that his constituents do not like Paul Ryan because of Ryan’s outspoken anti-Trump attitudes. Perhaps he will remain friends with Ryan, but perhaps he will be persuaded that it is not in his political best interest to vote for Ryan as Speaker.

It made me extremely pleased when Trump brought Bannon on as an official advisor.My hope is that they groom some of the younger ones (Steve Miller already has the mindset) to continue this movement to victory.

    This will be a long term fight as the progs are so entrenched in our system they have grown roots (look at the education system and modern unions). In fact with the cultural marxist controlling most of Western Europe and much of urban US it may be a neverending battle.

He tried to be magnanimous to Obama, saying that Obama is a “good guy” and is helping with a smooth transition. Obama repaid him by screaming about Russians, passing thousands of new regs, taking an unprecedented UN action with three weeks left in his presidency, and expelling diplomats, etc. He helped Rubio salvage his career, and Rubio has already turned on him.
        And so on.

        If Trump ever believed that these snakes would actually deal in good faith, hopefully he has been completely disabused of that notion. These are not “good people”, they are scum and just have to be defeated, again and again. No quarter.

    In my world view, if President Trump makes any backroom deals to cover for any fraud, corruption, High Crimes and Misdemeanors or any criminal activity by sitting or former politicians, staffers and lobbyists he will lose my support 100%. I don’t care about the wall or how many jobs he brings back until LAW AND ORDER is restored and no one is too big to prosecute for offenses against this country and her people. This includes Obama and his fraudulent birth certificate and citizenship status.

    I am very, very angry that he was quick to ‘pardon’ Clinton’s by simply waving it off as “They’ve suffered enough already” – this is UNACCEPTABLE. I am, however still on-board hoping Trump is playing rope-a-dope until he is seated behind the levers of power and has a layer of protection around him.

      Question: Was Trump’s “suffered enough” comment a decision, tactic or strategy?

      A decision NEVER to investigate Hillary?

      A tactic to TEMPORARILY let it go … provided Dems play ball in passing his Agenda?

      A strategy to INSTEAD go after Clinton Foundation DONORS by conditionally flipping the Clintons against them?

      So much more fun to CHEER the possibilities that Trump keeps converting to reality.

    Here’s a concept – you people epitomize the essence of being a Redneck as in very limited experience, knowledge and ability to function outside your narrow world-views and perspectives. NYC and California coastal cities, for example are overwhelmed with liberal Rednecks. This site – or better said this thread – seems to have quite a few conservative Rednecks as well.

        I lay most of the blame on today’s moral decline in all areas at the feet of the church and professional clergy. The devil will do what he does, and the church has completely failed to stand in the way. No denying it.

    “Hobbits and Deplorables Should Hold Us All Accountable”…

    Note the “all” there. He is saying hold all government employees at all levels accountable. Of course, holding elected officials accountable is easier as you can vote against them. When it is not election time, what can you do?

    You can help to mold public opinion perhaps. The internet allows many people to get in on the opinion molding act. You can also e-mail your local elected officials as well as those in another state. Some say that letters don’t matter but I have read for decades that the opposite is true —- a small amount of mail (snail mail) or other forms of communication are sometimes seen as an “avalanche”.

    For your letter too be in the “for” or “against” pile does some good, but a well written letter is better than a thoughtless rant. Try not to be like the individual who thinks ranting over small things makes her feel intelligent. Learn to write concise, polite, integument letters or e-mails. Your e-mail will not change the world but a well written one could impact the thoughts of a public official.

    It is important not to sound like a cliche. Remember that the other side is the one that thinks of us as “fly over country”, rednecks, and “knuckle-draggers” and other even worse things. Don’t feed their bias. Don’t prove their prejudiced ideas of conservatives.

    Disclaimer Note: as one born and raised in Tennessee I feel that adults can read “redneck” without running to their safe place.

      I’m not sure the problem is lack of accountability so much as it is a tried and true way of holding elected officials accountable. On one hand, voting them back in is our fault, but on the other, there seems not to be a very good way to “hold their feet to the fire” once they get in office. Let’s not kid ourselves–calling and writing have not done much good in the past eight years (and beyond).

      I and others have asked this before: How do we do a better job of holding elected officials accountable?

      I would really like some sensible, doable, concrete answers to this question, and although I’ve thought about it a lot, I have yet to come up with anything. It seems we elect people who basically ignore us for 4 or 6 years until it’s suddenly time for their names to be on a ballot; then they straighten up for a short while and do what’s right.

      I dunno what the answer is, but it seems to me that WE (not Trump) need to figure this out and pronto!

        Another option is to make the GOPe or RiNoCs feel very uncomfortable. Setup groups that take turns in Washington D.C protesting at their offices and homes. When aforementioned backstabber or coward comes home, dog them, call them out, make them wish they had never turncoat-ed.

Third, those who will pressure them to backtrack must be pressured to get the h*** out of the way (Ryan, McConnell, McCain, Graham, and dozens of others, as well as the media). If we are to actually succeed and not just nibble around the edges, we must fight every day as hard as we did during the campaign. Tough to do, tough to stay focused, but if we do we’ll win.

    Trump is going to redefine the ‘bully pulpit’ in a way that will be history making. In this era we have media and communications methods far beyond those available when the term was first used.

    He has already revolutionized how a Presidential candidate/PE communicates directly to the people. Intuitively savvy, smart, shrewd and forward thinking, Trump single handedly made the MSM irrelevant in terms of expressing his thoughts and feelings.

    I think that once he is in office he changes the game again. We’ve all followed his underdog climb over insurmountable odds to be where he is now. But no one has yet seen him in action as the President. Once he sits in the Oval Office he literally will be in the most important position in the world. With awesome responsibilities and mighty levers of power. I think he will bring such dignity and respect to the office that his deeds will drown out the predictable whining from the leftist losers.

    Trump as President will still be Trump the person. Therefore I think he will still use social media as well as strategic old school media to constantly explain his reasoning and his actions. And a big part of the bully pulpit has always been to uplift and stimulate morale. Obviously the MSM and Democrat politicians will try to do what they can to put obstacles in his way and discourage supporters. If you think GWB was demonized, you ain’t seen anything yet!

    Trump has consistently outsmarted his critics and whipped them into cowardly fanaticism. Minutes after he takes the oath, reality will hit those enemies. They think their protests and old playbook of personal destruction still will be effective, but this is unprecedented territory. Trump will have the final word, and will constantly use the bully pulpit to ridicule the fanatics and enact authentic hope and change while bringing about his transformation of America one step at a time.

The RINOs and the Dems will not be prepared for the Trump “Blitzkreig” that will be aimed at tearing down the old DC power structure ( via wreaking ball) and then quickly laying a new foundation for limited government. Trump has four years to accomplish the restructuring and four more years to build the new smaller, more efficient and constitutional government. If he can do it in eight years, his legacy will be on a par with George Washington.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

    A couple of days ago I was researching the Congressional ‘Dues List’ detailed in the Book authored by Peter Schweizer when I cam along a story where Schweizer is NOW the EDITOR of Breitbart!

    What that means is ASTOUNDING!!!

    As you should know, Breitbarts main man is/was Steve Bannon, who first supported Ted Cruz (until issues; like his U.S. Citizenship) then a few months later after meeting with Trump several times came out with his endorsement and when the admin picks were being put together, Bannon was named Trumps #1 senior counselor – Bannon is now the strategist who sits with Trump when Reince Priebus is is conferring on how Trump should inter relate with Congress.

    So, get this; Peter Scheizer, who UNDERSTANDS exactly what is wrong in Congress (Extortion – Clinton Cash author) works as #1 Editor for Brietbart, reports directly and daily with Steve Bannon (Breitbart owner) who is Trumps Senior Strategist, and who sits with Trump when he is dealing with his new “Cheif of Staff” Reince Priebus – who is in that position BECAUSE he was the RNC Chair and knows who and how everyone in the GOP House ticks.

    THIS is proof to me – there is NO DOUBT that Trump knows everything going on in Congress – and he will ‘drain the swamp’!
