Steve Bannon Explains Why U.S. Media Will Never Stop Attacking President Trump…

Perhaps the best soundbite of the day comes from Steve Bannon answering a question about whether the administration perceives the future having a better or worse relationship with the Mostly Swamp Media.  WATCH:

As CTH has stated since the fall of 2015 – because the MSM is structurally built to synergize with a globally progressive worldview, they will never accept a nationalist perspective from any U.S. President.

Nationalism is simply antithetical to their interests.

Therefore the media are in a zero-sum position.  If President Trump’s economic nationalist agenda (“America First”) is successful – the media fail.  The MSM have nothing to lose by continuing to attack President Trump; he is an existential threat to their ideology and business model.

Fortunately President Trump has very clear eyes on this reality, as he shared in the October 2016 campaign speech:

[…] The most powerful weapon deployed by the [Globalists] is the corporate media. Let’s be clear on one thing: the corporate media in our country is no longer involved in journalism. They are a political special interest, no different than any lobbyist or other financial entity with an agenda. And their agenda is to [protect Globalism] at any cost, at any price, no matter how many lives they destroy.  For them, it is a war – and for them, nothing is out of bounds.  (more)

      I really like Bannon, he’s as smart and tactical as they get. And he has experience.
      He holds a masters degree from Georgetown in “National Security Studies”.
      He has a Bachelor’s degree from Virginia Tech in “Urban Planning”.
      An MBA degree with honors from Harvard Business School.
      He served for 7 years as a “Surface Warfare” officer on the Navy Destroyer USS Foster.
      He’s been a “Special Assistant” to the Chief of Naval Operations at the Pentagon.
      And he’s been an executive producer in Hollywood, and made 18 movies.
      Some were documentaries. One was about Reagan, another about Sarah Palin, and others. He’s been an investment banker and had financial stakes in “Seinfeld” and other shows. The guy has a lot of experience and knows how to navigate the enemy.

          Let me clarify. They are creating a false perception. THEY WANT THAT FALSE PERCEPTION TO PENETRATE. I will bet that the Marxists have special projects to surround the top brass and top military members of the Trump administration and their families with political influencers to push “bad Bannon” and “civilian Bannon”. They really want our military to NOT get smart. And Bannon is one smart dude who brings some very awesome perspective they would not get otherwise.

          Remember – OBAMA – a top echelon member of the Marxists and globalists – now knows our military inside and out – all its weaknesses that he helped create. Bannon is a wild card in any conflicts and traps the globalists can create. Bannon can be how we WIN against these chumps.

          All making sense. And I say we back Bannon TO THE HILT.

          Glad he’s on our side. Trump sure knows how to pick talent!

    Christianity is as much an antithesis to the globally progressive worldview. It is the chief reason why the media and the left are pro Islam. Nobody believes these people are so in love with muslims, but rather they (the media) hate everything Christianity stands for. Of course, the faith is inexorably linked with American nationalism.

      Thank you for posting. I was not going to watch but I needed to see the two together. The body language is hard to fake, as we saw in the GOP primary debates. Interesting that both have very young voices.

      What I took from this: the Milo episode isn’t going to cut into the momentum except to cut off Milo’s very successful college tour which soured the public on protests. The Milo take down was saved for CPAC which was one protest too late. Milo won a big one for us.

      With Milo, a soldier was wounded but took the hill. This is called a victory in wartime. Trump has a lot of Generals around him. Bannon is military. Priebus was rock solid.

      Trump is all business. In business, you weigh what you win against what you lose, and cut your losses. Same as military

        One America News has that mission somewhat. However, cable providers refuse to carry them.

        I think the best way to beat anti trust is to force cable providers to get feedback from customers, say by ballot, of programs they prefer to see. Then in the news category, if a certain percentage want to see One America, an anti trust settlement would force them to offer the product. It would take a judge and a pack of lawyers to settle what the cable company might have to pay or not pay One America to add that news service to the lineup

        In free market, we do not tell companies what they must sell. However, Cable and Broadcast are limited markets – only so much bandwidth, and so many broadcast frequencies available and government hands it to the big boys.

        Another solution is to break up the PBS monopoly. Limit PBS to one local broadcast channel, and use the remaining PBS broadcast frequencies to broadcast the programs voted on by the local citizens. PBS also gets multiple cable channels. That would be the place to insert customer selected news alternatives

    Why should America sign an even-Steven trade deal when we have the bigger market. Do you think Walmart signs the same lease deal in a strip mall as a mom-and-pop bicycle shop. Walmart holds all the cards and absolutely does not sign an even-Steven deal.
    Historically and economically tariffs are a conservative idea.
    An income tax falls 100% on Americans. A tariff falls partially on foreigners as they can’t pass 100% of it along to the American consumer. Substituting a tariff tax for an income tax will necessary be a tax cut for America. Tariffs are tax cuts if they are offset by income tax cuts in a revenue neutral way. Tariffs are a smarter tax than an income tax.
    Lincoln favored tariffs. Karl Marx favored free trade.
    America is unique in the world in that we are a continent-wide country with virtually every conceivable resource. We need nothing from nobody.
    Free trade does not work in a fiat currency environment. In a gold-backed currency environment, gold would flow out of our country to China. Eventually, we would run out of money with which to purchase their goods and the trade imbalance would cease. In a fiat currency environment, they use our dollars to purchase Treasuries thus artificially propping up the dollar. We print more money.

      Perfectly stated. You’ve shown how the Constitution is truly a Conservative document as it cites tariffs and prohibits direct taxes. The 16th Amendment, the first of the three tragic “progressive” mistakes ( 16th-17th-18th ), set the stage for the Marxist takeover by allowing Income Taxes ( while keeping pre-existing Tariffs naturally ) and its evil spawn: Inheritance taxes, Gift taxes, Employee Paycheck Withholding, Social Security and the Internal Revenue Service.

      Marx and Engels class warfare ( itself an updated plagiarization of earlier economic Robin Hood theft espoused by Diggers, Levelers and such ) spread worldwide after the Civil War like venereal diseases in a cowboy town full of cathouses. Marxism, euphemistically called “Progressivism” is the heart and soul of Globalism itself, and as you point out, reconfiguring government revenue collection ( I hate those words ) from a combination of internal and external sources to almost 100% taxes on its own citizens is as evil and un-Patriotic, anti-Nationalistic and indeed anti-American as it gets.

      The absolute simplest way to destroy the enemy in one shot is to repeal the 16th Amendment and carefully word its replacement to ban Income Taxes ( along with Inheritance, Gift, Withholding, Business, Capital Gains, VAT ), reaffirm targeted Tariffs, and establish a single rate consumption Sales Tax that all persons must pay without exemption. The rate could be as low as 10% but must be specified in the Amendment and not subject to later changes.

      You’re also right about Levin who knows nothing about these things. He completely misstates the Hoover, FDR, Crash, Depression, Smoot-Hawley sequence of events in effort to attack tariffs and give aid and comfort to the progressive income tax. This is all a consequence of the JBS-Goldwater-Buckley era re-alignment when the strongly Constitutionalist Birchers got demonized rightly or wrongly for political incorrectness, and the elitist Conservative Intelligentsia of Buckley ( and later Rush, Levin, etc ) emerged as mainstream. In their small minds, the 16th Amendment and IRS was too big to fail ( and well they’re cowards really ). Naturally they then evolved to hate tariffs, and love “free” trade because to do anything else rocks their boat of beliefs. Same thing with open borders.

      A simple mental exercise they would fail …. If America was next to India and we had average $20/hour wages and India had $5, what would happen with free trade? …. What would happen with open borders? … Well that about sums up what *did* happen with Mexico as Perot pointed out. Electricity finds its ground through path of least resistance …. Water finds its level …. A system of locks is necessary to contain unequal bodies of water unless you really want to split the difference and pursue the mean. Problem is, that is not in our Constitution, and it was not written to drag America down to the level of everyone else.

        I’m a big fan of what you just said and agree with all of it

        A consumer tax is the fairest tax across the board, for all levels of Americans.

        Tariffs are the closest thing to a consumption tax we may be able to produce in this hostile environment.

        A virus to infect the unfair progressive income tax.

        I’m a sailor. The feds put a luxury tax on expensive boats and literally killed the US yacht business. The foreign yachts didn’t match the quality of US yachts. So the tax didn’t work.
        They were to much cheaper than ours, with no tariff, cheap labor we lost both ways.

      Tariffs aka duties are explicit in the US Constitution that Congress can impose. It took a Constitutional Amendment in the early part of the 20th Century to make the income tax viable. Prior, as argued by Adam Smith and within the Constitutional Convention, indirect taxes were baneful to sound individual wealth and good government.

      And the last fight let us face
      The Internationale unites the human race.

The song was later used as the first Soviet Union National Anthem.
