CBS Previews Steve Bannon Interview…

CBS’s Charlie Rose is sharing snippets of an interview with President Trump’s former political strategist, Steve Bannon.  Two video segments below:

.

Regardless of agreement or disagreement with the positions espoused therein; after watching these segments I’m left asking myself: what exactly is the value here? Who or what is the beneficiary of these interviews? What exactly is the purpose?

    Bannon is a strong, passionate, articulate voice for the MAGA agenda. There are so few out there, I, for one, am deliriously happy to have him outside of the White House, unrestrained, unshackled, and ready to take it to the GOPers.

    FLASHBACK: Exclusive — A Devil’s Bargain: How Steve Bannon Met Andrew Breitbart, Then Put Conservatives on Path to Destroy Hillary Clinton Once and for All

    “NEW YORK CITY, New York — Bloomberg BusinessWeek National Correspondent Josh Green detailed in a Breitbart News Daily radio special on Wednesday his new number one bestselling book, Devil’s Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency, how Stephen K. Bannon met Andrew Breitbart, helped lift Donald Trump into the White House, and ripped apart Hillary Clinton. Green joined the program on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel for a 45-minute special.”

    (The photo is magnificent. Andrew was magnificent.)

      • Agreed Bob, I was about to respond to the original poster but you covered it well. I frankly do not know what Bannon did for President Trump to get him elected – I know what Corey and Manafort did but drawing a blank on Bannon. I shall appreciate anybody who can articulate his role and what was the promise that President Trump gave to conservatives to suggest that it was only President Trump’s voice but through and through it was Bannon’s idea!

        Bob, you didn’t give all of the quote. It said “… helped lift Donald Trump into the White House…”. Could Donald Trump have won the election without Steve Bannon? That is something that is unprovable. However, I do think Steve Bannon did “help” lift Donald Trump into the White House. And Bannon is exactly right about Gary Cohn. Gary Cohn should have been escorted off the premises the day he made his statement about Charllotesvile. He came very close to calling Donald Trump a supporter of white supremacists.

          Correct. Was about to point out the same thing. The quote says “helped lift Donald Trump into the White House” and is entirely fair.

          I have a lot of respect for both Trump and Bannon. Both are committed patriots.
          And I doubt that they are at odds with each other at the moment.

          I agree with James. Big difference between “helped lift” and “lifted”. Who can disagree with “helped lifted”?

          During the primary, and even the general, there were only three places to hear anything positive about Trump (Brietbart, Drudge, and CTH).

          • James / Troublemaker, without going into semantics of “helped lift” v/s “lifted”, I still did not get my answer on how Bannon did that? We all know what Corey and Manafort did for candidate Trump. Since you seem to agree with the sentiment that Bannon “helped lift” candidate Trump to President Trump, maybe you can help me. This is a serious question and no sarcasm intended since I am curious to know when people say that without Bannon there will be no President Trump. I would rather put Steve Miller ahead of Bannon for some of the phenomenal speeches drafted for candidate / President and approved by Trump – again here the keyword is “approved by” and not “drafted for”. I am not discounting role of any of the people who has been on Trump train but again the keyword here is “Trump Train” and not “Bannon Train” or “Miller Train” or “Corey Train” or “Manafort Train”, etc.
            If you ask me (I know you did not ask but just my POV) about hearing anything about candidate Trump – my main and only source to determine what President Trump will be like was his unedited live videos of his campaign rallies. Without those videos I will not know about candidate Trump. I am not undermining the role of CTH, Newsmax, etc. for their positive coverage, but I am sure that like me, there are many of President Trump’s supporter who solely relied on unedited version of candidate Trump’s speeches. Of course the debates also helped since it was plain as the rising sun that ALL “moderators” of ALL “debates” were there to force candidate Trump into making at least one forced error to derail his campaign.
            For me, President Trump is still not yet a politician and that deserves credit to the man himself for still be able to maintain that after more than two years of declaring his candidacy.
            Disclaimer – I am a supporter of President Trump and not a fan and have learnt one thing over the past two years that not to jump to conclusion of his immediate actions but rather wait for few weeks to know the cause and effect of his actions.

            Andrew Breitbart made being a brave an brash Republican, acceptable.

            Bannon is the same way. Almost every quote I’ve heard from Bannon,
            echoes the the policy Trump promised in the campaign, and since elected.
            What’s wrong with getting a taste of that on 60 Minutes.
            There are people who will watch the show knowing nothing about the President’s policies.
            Why is that bad?

            All these semantics about who lifted and who helped?
            Who cares, Bannon is on my side,
            We need every body we can get.

          Donald J. Trump won in SPITE of BB supporting Cruz and in spite of the many negative articles they did on Trump and still did after Bannon came back.

          You can’t undermine Trump’s choices for those offices and support him at the same time! That gives the impression that they think Trump is senile or not capable. It also implies that Trump keeps screwing up!

          And that is truly what BB promotes.

          His supporters don’t believe that but that’s the underlying message that BB gives on a regular basis.

    • I have been one to call Brietbart out on their self-aggrandizement. I know a lot of people didn’t appreciate it but it was the voters who got Trump elected. It was his avid supporters from the BEGINNING that pushed his agenda! We posted and posted and argued, and dissected the lies and posted the truth.

      We dug up and shared every bit of information we could find on Trump’s opponents.

      I lost two computers to hackers during the election. I made a lot of troll,s and Cruz supporters, very unhappy as did many of the other Trumpers from the very beginning.

      And yes, BB was Cruz Central almost all the way up to the end until we ganged up on them and called them on their FAKE NEWS and false reporting, just as we’ve also done since Trump was elected.

      I thought Bannon would straighten them out when he came back and was appalled that they wrote so many articles undermining Trump during Bannon’s first few days of returning, and now I don’t trust them. Whether they’ve corrected that or not, I don’t know. And I’m not even sure that I care anymore what BB does. I reckon, that a lot of people don’t really read the articles critically. But there’s almost always a jab towards Trump. Simply undermining Trump’s judgement over and over again is the same thing the Democrats have been doing since day 1.

      At first they did it repeatedly by publishing fake news from other news outlets and I got so depressed and discouraged with it, I started seeking out other sites that had GOOD news. And kept posting links to their articles. And CTH was one I recommended over and over again. Even though I dislike WordPress and rarely comment. I love CTH!

      The one thing I questioned BB on over and over again was, WHY AREN’T you reporting what Trump DOES accomplish???? And I would post CTH links and links from The Still Report and Canadafreepress.

      Apparently, articles about ILLEGALS having sex with animals is more important to them than a lot of Trump’s accomplishments. And that to me, is an agenda I can’t trust.

      I don’t know what we are going to do come the 2018 elections. Right now, I’m praying this Hurricane drops down a couple of notches before it hits us. There’s nowhere to run! And they just showed an update showing the eye going right over most of the Shelters which are horrid here in FL. They freeze you to death and refuse to let you have any coffee (after they tell you not to bring anything). They said they kept it so cold to keep the animals calm. Never mind giving people pneumonia, coming in soaking and wet, no way to dry off and no hot liquids to warm up with. The Red Cross in Central FL is horrid.

Fed priorities now for non santuary cities, GDP to 3 percent, I could go on but you get my drift. He is my hero and I hope he continues to give Trump good advice. I don’t agree with everything Bannon says, but he gets 75 percent right enough for me.

    The four hundred counties that voted twice for Obama and then went for our President didn’t do it because they discovered Breitbart or anyone else in media. President Trump and HIS relentless drive,vision and unique message carried the day…

    Bannon and Breitbart represent themselves and their agenda. President Trump and his agenda is represented by his cabinet of republicans,democrats and independents who came together to make up this unique MAGA…

    To simplify MAGA down to Breitbart or anyone else is beyond delusional. Lots of people like that on the right and we can THANK President Trump for his once in a lifetime accomplishments..The rest are followers…

    To answer Sundance question about who this is for…well…Bannon and Breitbart…Sure as heck not me and my large circle of friends..More power to them. They are just a small, negative and confrontational part of a much bigger picture..

          It’s not a wonder, then, that Trump would pick Kushner over Bannon in any kind of power struggle, then. Sure, Kushner is family, but he’s actually the guy who got the job done.

              I am amazed at the gas lighting going on here on CTH comments. Steve Bannon, Mercer, Kellyanne Conway, & Mercer, supported/ran Ted Cruz’s campaign from May 2015 to Aug 2016 at the Convention. They were probably with him months before that. They came on board to the Trump campaign for the final 11 weeks (and were a much needed booster in the final stretch). There is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY Bannon had anything to do with Pres Trump’s campaign agenda.

                And Ted Cruz was pushing the globalists agenda. Therefore, so was Bannon. All of this in my opinion, is Mercer is trying to position himself for something. As they are all Jewish I think it must have something to do with Israel policies. That is apparently what the fight with McMaster. I don’t know anything much about the background of that but people should be very suspicious of the cannonization of Bannon and the attempt to rewrite history of the campaign about his role.

            So, as I’m reading, I’m thinking…maybe the accusations that Bannon has anti-semitic leanings is true!??? But then, Jared sticks up for Bannon!

            So, the Liberal writers that BB hired after the election…I remember one of them wrote an article that stated he wanted to persuade us….and we piled on and gave him what for…does the new editor even realize what is being written? I ask this because obviously, she doesn’t know how to edit! I’m dyslexic and when errors stick out so badly that I notice them, you know it hasn’t been edited.

      Bannon emphasized Trump’s fighter instinct. I like that he is a street fighter as is Trump, but I didn’t vote for Bannon. The interview seemed to be more about Bannon than the Trump administration. BB now has more click bait articles than anything of substance, quoting Politico or NYT publications. They seem to be hell bent on dividing the President’s supporters. The comment sections have turned into bitch sessions about how Ivanka and Jared are running the WH. That’s plain BS and I find it as difficult to read through them as it was with the Cruz supporters’ rants during the primary.

      I am thinking that too many on here are not looking at the big picture. The clue was how Bannon himself defines himself – streetfighter.

      Bannon and Brietbart are a blunt instrument and I have no doubt that it is President Trump wielding them. You pull out a gun and pistol whip someone to knock some sense into them so you don’t have to shoot them dead. Bannon and Breitbart are the pistol.

      Don’t try to make sense of the headlines at Breitbart – is that pro Trump or anti Trump? President Trump is writing them all. The Democrats and RINOs are being knocked in the head right now and if they don’t wise up I am certain that President Trump will use his ‘blunt instruments’ to take them out permanently. As someone posted further up the thread, look how Breitbart took out Megyn Kelly. Remember how she treated Trump during the debates? Lesson over.

For clarity, I am not talking about those pols who call themselves R and stab us in the back.

    [Bannon] said that he would continue to fight for the President and his agenda outside of the White House. “I’m going to be his wing man outside for the entire time,” he said. “Our purpose is to support Donald Trump.” per Bannon/60 Minutes/BB today. I don’t go to BB often anymore because their quality has dropped so badly. I still use it, along with others to get a feel for what is happening.

        So aren’t all those headlines true?

        If they are reporting the truth, I have no problem with them, when I read
        I consider the source and move on. Bannon in the one interview said that most
        conservatives are not happy with the DACA handling – it’s true. That is reflected here at
        CTH in many of the comments.
        So now the question will be; will PDJT lose support IF congress passed some form of DACA and he signs it.
        My guess is that he will, how much I don’t know. I know that I don’t support the 6 month
        extension, if he signs it I will support him, that’s all we can do. Worrying about what might happen 6 months from now, as many do here, is just not good for anyone’s health. It is out of our hands. It’s in God’s hands.

        And frankly, those headlines show a necessary, pragmatic view of the illegal immigration problem. There is no way the U.S. will deport over 21M illegal immigrants, nor can it be done without a lot of bloodshed, IMHO. Deport every major felon, even if it means dropping them from 30,000 feet over their home country. For the rest who’s major crime is being here illegally, a more pragmatic solution is needed. Not so anyone feels good, but because we are good. They need to be fully incorporated into our culture, language and society, for our nation’s good. Some path to legalization WILL occur. The question is who gets to decide the terms. Do you really want the Democrats deciding the terms (LBJ used the “civil rights” issue to con blacks into voting Dem for the last 50+ years)? It will harm us, make the illegals permanently dependent on the Dems for handouts, and further damage our wonderful country. They can be given a choice: if you’re under 50, learn basic English (there will be a test called citizenship), find productive work, and go through the process required for citizenship OR at the end of two years you will be deported wherever and whenever we find you. All relatives must get in line and go through the same process WITHOUT any consideration given for you being a naturalized citizen.

      Excellent observations and post unconquered. We need every ally and vote we can get. Trump did not become POTUS without his strong team of players and all of his voters. He did not do it alone, nor will he get re-elected alone. That takes nothing away from him, it is merely stating the obvious.

    Was that an interview of Bannon or a Charlie Rose peroration? Can’t be sure. So Bannon, whom I thought was at the vanguard of media awareness, allows this idiot Rose to pull same old stuff. Rose asks if support for Trump can ever be absolute (staggeringly oblivious to the absolute, uncritical, religious support of the media for Obama) and Bannon lets it slide. The disillusionment just keeps growing. Does ANYBODY get it enough to give it back?

    Charlie Rose: “Many people suggest it should have gone, it should have gone in terms of denouncing, specifically from the very beginning, Neo-Nazis and white supremacists, and people of that political view.”

    ________________

    Charlie, it is not the job of the president to go around denouncing American citizens with whom he disagrees politically.

    By contrast, it is the President’s job to denounce those who commit unlawful violence and to denounce those who violate the Rights of Americans. Who was doing that, Charlie? Who was there without any lawful permit, and engaging in violence, violating the 1st Amendment rights of law abiding Americans?

    It was fascist anti-fa and black supremacist BLM who had no lawful permit, it was fascist anti-fa and black supremacist BLM who engaged in violence, and it was fascist anti-fa and black supremacist BLM who violated the 1st Amendment rights of law abiding Americans on that day, wasn’t it, Charlie?

    Furthermore, the leader of the law abiding group was apparently an Occupy Wall Street member and an Obama voter. They had a lawful permit to protest in support of keeping historic statues in place, that’s what they were there for, that was the purpose of their protest.

    Charlie, do people who peacefully protest the removal of American history from the public square have a 1st Amendment right to do so, without being attacked by a mob of fascists and black supremacists?

    It’s a simple question Charlie, yes or no?

        For better or worse, people can have bad ideology in PUBLIC too. The 1st Amendment doesn’t guarantee freedom to express your views only in the privacy of your own living room.

        There is also question about who these people really were, and whether the whole thing was staged by the Left, considering the leader of original protest appears to have been an Occupy Wall Street leader and an Obama supporter and voter.

        It is the mob violence and the violating of the 1st Amendment rights of others that is the violation of Law.

        And it is the fascist anti-fa and the black supremacist BLM who are engaging in violence and violating the rights of Trump supporters at every rally they hold in Democrat-governed states.

        There is no moral equivalence to be found.

                One of the videos I watched, I’m not sure if it’s this one or another one, showed this black Antifa guy jumping over the hood of one of the vehicles or something. He had matching shoes on, until he jumped and then he had a regular shoe on and a flip-flop on the other foot. The car that was crashed into, had off all things….a shoe rack in the back! It showed it for just a little bit but it was there.

                And each and every time (color me conspiracy theorist) each and every time there’s something weird like this that happens, where the actors aren’t who they say they are, they leave a lot of shoes behind.

    ________________

    Charlie, we defeated the Nazis in WWII. For all intents and purposes, those who espouse their beliefs are a tiny fringe element with no real influence anywhere.

    Now consider this, Charlie. Americans also fought against Communists from the end of WWII, through the Korean War, through the Vietnam war, through the entire Cold War, right up to this very minute. Against people who espouse views that are nearly indiscernible from the modern Socialist and Progressive-Left. Why aren’t you calling on the President to denounce Leftists, Charlie? Most of your friends and the members of the social circles in which you travel are proudly Leftist, aren’t they?

    Aren’t you?

    Which has more influence and presents a greater danger to America’s values, principles and ideals? A fringe element of society who nobody takes seriously? Or the Democrat Party, which flagrantly exemplifies Cultural Marxism in nearly everything they do?

    And now the Democrat Party supports the fascist group ‘anit-fa’, people who proudly conduct themselves like Hitler’s brown-shirts.

    It is said that Hitler murdered 11,000,000 people in the concentration camps. How many babies has the Progressive Left and Democrat Party murdered since 1973, Charlie? Hasn’t the Progressive Left eclipsed Hitler by a factor of FIVE?

    Has the Progressive Left not murdered fifty-five million babies, and are they not murdering more every single day?

    Where is the ‘moral equivalence’ between a fringe element of society marching peacefully in support of undeniable American history, and the Communist 5th Column of which you are a card-carrying member, which openly supports dismembering the bodies of babies and selling off the baby body parts for profit?

    You’re straining at a gnat while bending over backwards to avoid looking in a mirror, Charlie.

          _________________

          This is why it is so important for the body of Christ (faithful church congregations) to avoid even the appearance of impropriety, much less actual impropriety.

          The whole world watches those who try to hold themselves to a Christian (Biblical) standard, looking for any opportunity to level the charge of ‘hypocrite’ at Christians.

          All individuals are subject to temptation and are prone to error — we all make mistakes — which is why we need to be vigilant and to correct each other according to Scripture (cf. 2 Timothy 3:16), and be willing to accept Scriptural correction.

          But when a congregation approves and allows error without proper (Scriptural) rebuke and correction (repentance, stopping the improper or sinful conduct), how can that be acceptable? It makes everyone look bad, but infinitely worse, it reflects negatively on Christ when those who self-identify as belonging to Him do wrong.

          Corrupting the church for filthy lucre, making the Lord’s church a ‘house of merchandise’ (cf. John 2:16) is so far beyond the pale it’s hard to know where to begin.

          I don’t doubt that many of the individuals in such congregations mean well, I am confident that most do — I am not so confident about the pastors or bishops or elders who are aware of the money stream and have an obligation to oversee the proper conduct of the church.

          This is another reason why it is so critical for the individual members of the congregation to read and know God’s Word and be taught according to it, in order to prevent the entire congregation from being led astray by an errant (or corrupt) leader. If the pastor or elders of the congregation where I am a member even hinted at doing something of this nature, the entire congregation would have put a stop to it before the second sentence left his mouth.

          Because we all read and are taught according to the Scripture what is Authorized and what is not, and how to prove it by the Scripture.

          The very first question asked of our pastor or elders would be “where is the Authority in Scripture to do this thing in Christ’s name?”

          And he can either show it plainly with book, chapter and verse, or he can tap-dance.

          Tap-dancers can repent, or see themselves out the door, or we will help them out the door.

          That last part was a bit of hyperbole, the actual process would be entirely according to Scripture. And if the individual steadfastly refused to repent, he would be withdrawn from, we would no longer have fellowship with that individual, until or unless he repents, as is according to Scripture (Ephesians 5:11, Romans 16:17, 2 Thessalonians 3:6, the example of the man in 1st Corinthians, and who repented and was received back into the congregation in 2nd Corinthians, et al).

          I ‘found’ Breitbart in 2015 when I couldn’t take the Trump-hate at Townhall.com anymore (and I ‘found’ CTH after that, via posts from people here who were posting on Breitbart).

          It is a very different environment on Breitbart than here, that’s for sure.

          Unlike here where most of us are on the same side, the Breitbart discussion forum is trench warfare. If you jump in that shark tank without being prepared to defend yourself, you will get eaten alive.

          After that happens once or twice, a good offense becomes the best defense. Not only do you have to expect to be attacked by some Soros-paid troll (or ideological fellow-traveler), but it is very much to one’s advantage to post in such a way that you don’t leave openings for counter-attack in the first place.

          And when they come after you — and they will, almost every time — make sure they wish they hadn’t 🙂

          It can be a lot of fun, like playing whack-a-mole with a hornet’s nest, but not if you can’t destroy the opposition with basic facts, reasoning, internet links to prove your points, the ability to expose and deconstruct their logical fallacies, and show them up when they quickly (and invariably) fall back on ad-hominem attacks.

          The hateful Left never concedes defeat, but you can overwhelm them with facts and basic logic, and when they go ad-hominem, you can mock them into retreat from the ‘debate’.

          What I noticed most strikingly about the NeverTrumpers on Townhall.com (and then at Breitbart) is that many of them conducted themselves almost identically to the Leftists we normally fought together in the forums, before the election campaign began and the NeverTrumpers were revealed.

          I will say this for Breitbart forums though, there is not much moderation or censorship, so they allow you go at it hammer and tong, which very few places (in my experience) do anymore. No moderator is going to bail you out if you get in over your head, but by the same token, no moderator is going to cut you off if you have a whole group of anti-American Leftist trolls on the run.

          I have also found that Breitbart is one of the best places to have very open and direct debates on Christian topics, for the same reason. No moderator is going to cut you off, so you can make your case, whether that is book, chapter and verse or secular historical accounts supporting Scripture (or both), and stand your ground without concern that a Politically-Correct moderator is going to delete your post, making all the time and effort you spent in vain.

          Things can certainly get heated, but hopefully not to the point where one says something that would undermine or contradict the Christian point one is trying to make.

          We ought not say (or do) anything sinful, but we ought not be shrinking violets either. We can (and I think should) be bold (cf. Philippians 1:14, Acts 9:29, Apollos in Acts 18:24-28, Acts 19:8, etc.).

            There is a moderator on there that hate my guts! And doesn’t like the word negro, when I describe what my father was listed on a census as.

            I’ve had them delete my posts for no reason.More than likely because a troll reported it and they didn’t bother to even read it.I very rarely cuss and when I do, it’s a word you find in the Bible.

            I liked PRE-election BB. We had some good discussions. After that, the trolls and never trumpers took over and the regulars left. Only occasionally, do I see the gang that was there pre-election and shortly after. Now, it could be, that they got hacked, too. I don’t know.

              ______________

              That may be one of their auto-delete words, where they have a ‘filter’ set to catch certain words they have deemed unacceptable for usage under any circumstance (unless Breitbart uses it in a title or article, then they can use it, but you can’t quote their own title or their article, which is frustrating — it’s okay for them, but not for you!), so those posts never go through, until or unless you re-write / re-word it.

                  You tell me!

                  I can’t even pretend to fathom political-correctness or the insanity that passes for group-think in Leftist circles.

                  I’m still trying to figure out how ‘oriental’ is (supposedly) a bad word. It must have been close to 20 years ago, I was at dinner with several friends and two were married and brought their wives. During the meal, I began to explain about something interesting that happened at work earlier that day when an oriental man came into the office. That he was oriental was not the interesting part, I never even got to the interesting part, I was just distinguishing the gentleman who came into the office because he was distinguishable.

                  I had no idea if he was Korean, or Chinese, or Japanese, or any other way of knowing how to describe him with any more specificity than simply ‘oriental’. I never even got to the rest of my story, the two wives jumped down my throat like I had said something horrible. They were actually shouting at me, lol! ” ‘Oriental’ is a rug, not a person!”, one said. I defended myself, but by this point the whole restaurant was looking at our table, and the husbands just looked down at their plates and kept eating, lol!

                  I have no idea what is wrong with the word ‘oriental’. The two harpies couldn’t tell me either, except to be very offended on behalf of someone (presumably oriental people) by my usage of it. It’s a word, an adjective which means “of, relating to, or characteristic of the Orient, or East; Eastern”.

                  “Oriental” is to Eastern as “Occidental” is to Western. If you go to English translation websites of Japanese online auctions today (as I have had occasion to do), and you are searching for a Japanese issue CD of a Western artist (as I have also had occasion to do), the category will look like this: “Music —> Pop/Rock —> Occidental”.

                  They are WORDS. Words are tools, used to communicate and describe things.

                  Back to your point.

                  When I hear someone say “negro”, my usual response is “why do you call them negroes, their knees don’t grow more than anybody else’s”. You have to say it completely deadpan. Usually I’m met with looks of abject horror, and then people start laughing, because, try as they might, they just can’t help it 🙂

                  I couldn’t reply under my own post, so I’ll reply here again.

                  I think that people are so fearful of political-correctness, so fearful of offending someone (actually, I don’t think they care about offending someone, I think they care about being singled out for being perceived as offending someone), that people self-censor.

                  And as many comedians who have stopped touring college campuses have noted, political-correctness destroys the potential for humor, about almost ANYTHING.

                  In large part, I think political-correctness is a form of mind-control. The Left decides what is offensive, because it promotes their political agenda. Then they use adult peer-pressure tactics to suppress speech they disagree with. This in turn causes people to self-censor, before they even speak.

                  Since language is the mind’s ability to express thought, if certain words or expressions are socially ‘forbidden’, if that ‘forbidden’ aspect is fully internalized, the mind compensates by blocking out anything which might lead to conceptualizing or expressing the ‘forbidden’ thing.

                  Mind control.

                  Political-correctness is an awful and insidious thing.

                  Political Correctness is the opposite of honesty. It is an unwritten social contract wherein the participants agree to observe certain lies, usually under the pretense to spare others discomfort, but in actuality, to spare oneself from being attacked by the brownshirts and Gestapo of the PC Police.

                  In exchange for juvenile “group acceptance” (or spared from being ostracized), the participants to the social contract agree to ignore certain obvious truths in order to not be perceived by others as even *potentially* offending anyone belonging to a currently favored class of people or popular viewpoint.

                  The whole thing is a socially constructed lie, and like other kinds of lying, it becomes second-nature to those who practice it long enough. That leads to living an unreality, and I think the internalization of political-correctness is part of what has caused roughly half the population to seem to be insane, or living in some sort of alternate reality.

  23. Oh, I think the purpose of the interview is to get some attention; for Bannon and Breitbart. I don’t see it as a negative or positive for the administration. Bannon seems to like attention. I like Bannon although I still don’t understand why he gave that interview to the press person just before he resigned ; that was weird, stupid, and unnecessary.

    I don’t have as antagonistic an attitude towards Breitbart as many people here have. Some days I read nothing there except the headlines, some days I read a few things. It doesn’t effect how I think about an issue, but some times the articles are informative and interesting. I like it better than Drudge; it’s hardly worth going there anymore…I read a few headlines but don’t click on much at all any more.

    Trump has to solve the DACA issue ideally in a humane way, because no matter what deporting some children who did nothing wrong is never something someone can champion as a glorious initiative.

    Trump is well within his rights to negotiate with the Democrats or Republicans, in fact in a proper functioning society the President should be above both parties and hold little allegiance to any, willing to go against one or the other where it suits the country.

    Three questions, for which the answer is basically the same, imo.

    Who watches Charlie Rose and 60 Minutes? Leftists, Democrats, NeverTrumpers, and moderate Conservatives. The Bannon interview is to influence them, and to a lesser extent, the alt-left, hopefully with Pres Trump’s message, although one’s initial impression is that Bannon spends more time saying he is defending Pres Trump than actually defending Pres Trump (how’s that for a run-on sentence?!). Recall Bannon’s interview with The Prospect, and the fact that working class Democrats not only voted for Pres Trump, they actually worked on the campaign team to help elect Pres Trump. Many of the aforementioned left side actually agree with us until the very end, where they split into communism/anarchy and we go with individualism and God.

    Bannon was quite erudite, imo. Bannon might learn to laugh a bit more and enjoy the battle. The Trump Victory Offices were run with joy and laughter, not fighting. Well, except for those people paid and sent in by the Hillary cartel. It was a joy fighting with them. Bannon perhaps also might learn to appreciate other’s ideas. There is always more than one way to accomplish a goal.

    Srry guys, but I remain very skeptical of Bannon. He DID go to a liberal rag and start bad mouthing cabinet members. That doesn’t work well in an organization. Quoting Sundance in his article “Steve Bannon out at White house:
    “In the American Prospect article Steve Bannon also undermined U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson directly, and was far out of line with this:

    “I’m changing out people at East Asian Defense; I’m getting hawks in. I’m getting Susan Thornton [acting head of East Asian and Pacific Affairs] out at State.” ~ Steve Bannon

    This type of statement was so over-the-top arrogant, and exhibits a ridiculous level of power-lust and expressed self-importance, I asked the question: ” Who exactly is Steve Bannon to think that he can marginalize the cabinet? And against the division narrative within the White House why the heck would he push that opinion publicly? Is he trying to push the envelope and get fired?“”

    Now he attacks the Catholic Church in a stuttering rant which when I read it sounds like tin foil hat stuff. I know, I know what the Churches position is, but you can offend a LOT of voters if you’re not careful. As I look at it, I see a big ego. Going to BrietBart and reading the stories catch line speaks volumes. A lot of it is negative towards the president. I hope he is doing good for the country, but this is coperate media just like the others. I will remain skeptical, until I see more. So far I see a lot of carping. He doesn’t act like a team player, but a one man show.

    Bannon was the Thomas Paine to George Washington.
    He is ideologically driven. National populism, anti-globalist, decentralized power, bi-lateral trade agreements, and virulently anti-Elite, anti-UniParty, with the aim to re-empower a Middle Class and tear the hands of the .1% off the financial and banking system.

    All this fit Trump and MAGA and America First.

    The reason he and Mercer went with Ted early on was they didn’t see or feel the wave that was coming behind Trump. They were fitting ideologically into Ted who looked like Spartacus in Texas and among the Evangelicals.

    Then Trump stole the Evangelicals and the Heartland and the Rust Belt and they went to the Lion and MAGA masses.

    But Bannon is a theoretician of ideas. He is not a political animal. He is a power player, a revolutionary type, like Thomas Paine. He helped shaped the key transcendent speeches that rocked the election and alerted the world that Trump was taking on the Swamp. The declaration of war was perfect. Bannon and Miller had no interference. Trump loved it and was never better.

    Bannon also understood by then the key Dem states could turn and with the Data from the RNC, Brad Pascale’s work, and Jared’s team, they convinced Trump to bet his life on those states with 5-6 rallies per day for the last week. Bannon had the convincing theoretical ammunition that guided the campaign at the pivotal moments.

    I remember writing comment about the phrasing in speeches that were right out Bannon and shaped by Miller in Trump’s syntax. Many times. Bannon is the Thomas Paine of MAGA.
    That’s just the reality.

    God sent the Mercers and Bannon and KAC at the moment we needed them.
    Christ inspired all the triumphs of that campaign.
    Remember how we prayed. The world was praying for Trump to win.

    Let’s no revise history now.

    Diminish no one. It all mattered. It was the finest grassroots Presidential campaign ever.
    Jesus, you and me, and prayers, and phone callers, door knockers, sign posters and donations, and rallies and DJT and all the folks that warmed up those rallies like no other campaign ever.

    And just like every battle in war won, a key moment or critical action happens, a decision to go despite the odds often wins the war. Bannon was that Lieutenant. He convinced the General to drive through the rain and mud, artillery and bombs, and break the back of the enemy.

    That’s what I recall. Andrew would have done it if he were with us. Steve was there in his place.

    God Bless America, Andrew Breitbart and Steve Bannon.

    God Bless DJT and all of MAGA.

    Keep praying because we haven’t gotten a tenth of what we need to get.

    We have two hundred POTUS successes, but nothing to change the nation back. We saved the SC. But we need economic victories and we need Christ to guide the diplomats to prevent war. Presently, everything is still in the balance.

    Proof of this I think is the feeling we get with the new rallies. They all ring true. DJT is pure and on point when he’s with the People. Back in DC in the Oval Office, it’s another reality.
    He knows it and that’s why he’s had the Evangelicals come twice recently. It’s like Exorcism of the Place.

    Keep the pipeline of prayers flowing over him and all the officials he needs inspired by Christ’s love.

      A footnote to this should probably be:
      While Thomas Paine was indeed a great man and a great thinker, who helped immeasurably with our own revolution and contributed greatly to the thinking of the Englightenment, he was also foolishly ideological enough to get full on board with the French revolution (and got himself imprisoned and running the risk of meeting the guillotine himself) without considering just what revolutions can sometimes entail (our revolution, much like our civil war, was a bit of an outlier — they are usually far uglier).

      Ideologues have their places and uses; they can be heroes indeed and great men, but they are not people one turns to when making political policy:

    Why isn’t Bannon or anyone else capable of calling out the Dimos’ and Leftist media’s b.s. for what it is? Why does our side allow the premise to stand, that white supremacists and neo-Nazis constitute a dangerous political faction in the United States? When they have exactly ZERO influence on politics? And why is everyone on our side who is deemed qualified to appear with a mike stuck in their face utterly incapable of exposing questions like those of Charlie Rose for what they are? Transparent attempts, that is, by him and his ilk to paint the entire Right as racist?

    Put a mike in my face and try that, Charlie, and I will crawl up your rear end, pop your eyeballs out from the inside, and breakout of the top of your cranium like Alien late for lunch.

    The dysfunctions regarding race that have developed over the last fifty years in America continue to worsen apace. Even the best of us freezes up when denunciations of “racism” start flying. And as a result, what gets buried when lies rule the day THE TRUTH.

    Here is THE TRUTH: The political party that America’s black community votes for at a rate of more than ten-to-one, was the party of the slaveholders of the Old South. Furthermore, the Democrat Party was the political party that the KKK members belonged to when it actually constituted a political force. That is to say, the white people who used to lynch African Americans and get away with WERE ALL DEMOCRATS. Additionally, it is a fact of the historical record that the Democrat President, Lyndon Baines Johnson, described the purpose of his so-called War on Poverty when it passed back in the mid 1960’s, saying: “I’ll have these [n-word]s voting Democrat for the next 200 years.” Except he said the word.

    Crazy, ain’t it? That almost a quarter of that time has passed, and so far, LBJ has been proven exactly right? Wow.

    The TRUTH is that “the black community” is still slaving away on the Democrat Plantation today. In the days of legalized slavery, they did so out in the fields to grow cotton. Now, in the days of volunteer slavery, they do so in the ghettos to grow government. And the chains nowadays are not physical chains, but rather, chains of the mind. Chains such as the IMPOSED dysfunctions of rampant illegitimacy, economic dependency across generations, criminally-negligent miseducation, drug addiction, eternal victimhood, and criminal degeneracy.

    Of course, the Democrats have talked-talked-talked about solving the above problems for more than fifty years. But somehow or other, the problems not only never get solved, they never even get better, and as a matter of fact, they only get worse.

    Donald Trump and Steve Bannon and everybody else of good will in this country — of every race, color and creed — needs to get a clue. We need to quit cowering like pantywaists when sniveling fools like Charlie Rose start driveling slime out of their mouths, and take a look at what these people ARE REALLY UP TO.

    The last thing the Democrat Party and its toadies want is for the problems suffered by the black community to be solved. Because then, that community might just get up and leave the Democrat Plantation, and that cannot under any circumstances in any way, shape or form be allowed to happen.

    I love this site, and I have learned some things here, especially about Donald Trump’s strategies. I do not understand, however, the bad feelings toward Steve Bannon. I don’t get that at all.

    If Donald Trump had not run and done well, whom would people like us have supported? I always want to just walk away and refuse to vote for the Mitt Romneys and W Bushes, but then I realize that would in reality be helping the Al Gores and John Kerrys and Obamas and Hillarys. And I can’t do that. So I vote for the lesser of the two evils—which until Donald Trump got progressively worse and worse. Until Donald Trump, I had given up. I’ve hated NAFTA since it was first talked about. I have been 100 percent opposed to continuing illegal immigration in all of its forms since NumbersUSA educated me on that issue around 2003. Ditto for too much legal immigration, chain migration, and automatic citizenship at birth no matter whether or not the parents are citizens. Almost no one spoke in favor of my issues. The ones mentioned are just two of many, albeit they are two of the most important to me. I had truly given up hope for this country. Then Donald Trump ran, and lo and behold, the man actually said what I had wanted to hear for so long. And throngs of other people appeared at his rallies supporting him and what he said. It’s still hard to believe that it really happened sometimes. And he was actually elected and is working to do what he promised. Amazing.

    But I need to ask a question. If Donald Trump had not run or if he had not done well, whom would you have supported for President? Most of the other Republican candidates were horrible people (yes, horrible people, not just horrible candidates). And none of them would have been able to accomplish what President Trump is accomplishing. But whom would you have supported in the hope that Hillary Clinton would not win and finish our country off?

    I was not a Donald Trump fan before he ran for President. I only knew him as a celebrity and self-promoter. When he went down that escalator, I had no intention of voting for him. I had never watched the Apprentice. The reality shows I watch are about rehabbing old houses. I decided on Trump strictly because of what he said about the issues I care about. How many people thought Donald Trump would be the Republican nominee on escalator day? Not very many. Who would have been your candidate if Donald Trump had not been available?
