      _________________________________________
      Some people want to believe in Bannon no matter the evidence.
      I do not understand why and how people have become so obsessed with Bannon who does not make policy is not president and is not about MEGA..?
      Yes he runs BB but he is not Andrew far from it. I am positive Andrew Breitbart would be disappointed in Bannon. Bannon strikes me more to be like Cruz.
      All of the good people who made Bannon an icon look who truly counts who is doing what he promised, who put his life and money on the line that is President Trump. Does he get everything no because in our republic there is no place for a dictator.
      Please stay on the train because more good things are to come.
      Peace and Joy

        So then we need to believe everything in the report.,..including Trump ally Tom Barrack calling him an idiot, and Trump whining to anybody who would listen about everybody in the White House..including Javanka, and Kellyanne Conway.
        Or do we only believe the Bannon part?

                An answer is all that is required…if you do not wish to answer, attacking me is the answer instead.
                If Bannon said this he is a douche..,if Trump said what he is accused of behind the backs of his people, then I will reassess my opinions there too.
                I just wanna know what parts of this story we are gonna cherry pick, and which parts we choose to ignore.

                  I’ve viewed The Conservative Treehouse for quite a while. And I must say you all are the most informed, intelligent, well spoken, and loyal group on the net. With that said Sundance is the best of the best and keeps us all going in the right direction.
                  But I am disappointed in a few. In making comments and replies that have been; name calling, personal attacks, innuendo, and pigeon holing any thing in regards to any negative comments.

                  All I am saying is we all here have a right to express our opinion whatever it may be. To personalize it, to call us names” only dissuades others from contributing. No one wants to be criticized for their contributions. Geez, Howie is one of the greatest, if not the greatest contributor. Along with Bluto, Fle, Katica, and many others.
                  Now virtually every time Howie and some others. makes a comment, even if it is not about Sessions, they is still bashed or reminded of it.

                  Let us all enjoy our place, in our treehouse and be respectful to each other’s views and thoughts. (Except for the trolls). And I do pray for everyone, let’s Make American Great Again.

                  Kaco,
                  I think my only issue with this, is that there were over 200 interviews done with dozens of people and apparently only Bannon was properly quoted. Everything else is a lie…

                  From Sara Sanders statement.

                  White House press secretary Sarah Sanders released a statement condemning a new tell-all book about the Trump administration by Michael Wolff.
                  “This book is filled with false and misleading accounts from individuals who have no access or influence with the White House,” Sanders said

                  And:

                  Wolff cites more than 200 interviews with sources for the book and multiple meetings at the White House over a period of 18 months.

                  But Sanders decried many of those sources, including former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, who returned to Breitbart News as chairman after leaving the White.

                  Im sure this isnt over, but Bannon was centered out for attack by the White House, so clearly they feel the book is not complete fiction. They may take issue with the statements, but they dont question that the statements were made. As for statements made by others, they deny those statements were made.

                  Okay, how about that article Bannon did just before he was fired, in which he said there was no solution with North Korea and other undermining things? This IS Bannon, and as Don Jr. said he is leaking, lying, backstabbing, etc. So the book is lies but it’s lies coming from Bannon.

              yes the allegations were denied by trump, by Sarah etc.
              Bannon is guilty of these comments, he had this author to the WH 12+ times
              but that does not translate to Bannon spoke the truth.
              So when others also deny any truth to these comments they may well be telling the truth about that.

          _______________________________
          Bannon has a track record, he spilled the beans she he was fired. He totally went against the wishes of POTUS in Atlanta and therefore helped elect a democrat.
          He mislead the voters letting them think they could win with Moore.
          I know the feeling you have gone so far in with Bannon he is your Icon for some reason but he is not what he represents himself as. He has proven that not only one time.
          He thinks he is the movement and he is not. The voters are and they choose Trump not Bannon. Bannon took himself out and has no one to blame than himself.
          I think if I was invested in Bannon I would feel the same as you have been there have don that. I am so sorry .

        I have a point…bear with me.
        Ya know the best is, you can only go from experience…Did you ever walk into a party or an office and just know you “did not” belong there? Yes? Well then did you ever attempt to join in and say something that promoted “silence” from the entire group? Then you understood you “did not” belong.
        In the Marines their is a “spoken” separation between Officer and enlisted, NCO and Staff NCO etc….Me and some of the guys went to a wine and cheese party. Actually sponsored by my Officer in Charge..He was new and did not understand… It was at Mt. Soledad in LaJolla, Ca. Snob city..So as the Officers were sipping on the wine and biting on cheese, me and the guys were getting naked, jumping in the pool, and chuggin the wine…..anyway the looks on the Officer’s faces was classic…never invited to any of their parties again. Then we went to Mission Beach and trolled the bars…we had a wonderful time…

        Steve Bannon… is enlisted…He walked into the President Trump circle and just could not adjust nor was accepted. Only reason he was was the President. In those circles, you never, never, violate the code..like the Mafia…never touch the family…he violated the code..when the code is violated ….you go down …down hard..
        The President always…always give someone a chance…he gave Bannot that chance..Bannon screwed it up.. screwed it up now and for everything he had..

        As with them all….all of them…just could not keep his mouth shut.

          Very good post. I enjoyed your story..:)

          The problem with Bannon was he could not jump over his own shadow.
          Our President is not a snob and he connects with the average person well and feels comfortable in those circles.
          I personally have known snobs who thought others were above them and they could not be friends with a person who had more money or status. This goes both ways.
          A person of maturity and grace can feel secure and comfortable among the elite and the average working Jo.

I wonder though, is he in legal jeopardy because of those leaks? Did any of the leaks contain classified info? Is he trying to cover his you know, either that or is he just totally enthralled in his own ego to the extent that he thinks he’s bigger than POTUS… Don’t really know but fame does very strange things to people, and people will do anything for fame.

    Makes me laugh, the idea he has any pull. No one voted for Bannon, no one cares about Steve Bannon. They voted for Trump, the guy they love and admire. How many times have we been over this w/ MSM? Could Bannon really be this delusional?

    Did anyone listened to Hannity on the radio this afternoon?

    I caught part of it going to the post office to mail an overnight mailing.

    Sean had Sarah Carter and Victoria Toensing.

    While they talked about Uranium One, I didn’t hear them ask Victoria T., what to me is the important question, ” DID YOU FINISH THE 10 PAGE SUMMARY YET?”

    Late summer, she was on FOX everyday saying that her whistleblower client had info to blow the lid off Uranium One but she needed to DOJ to lift the NDA on her client. OVER AND OVER everyday. Then on October 27th, the DOJ called her bluff and lifted the NDA thus freeing her client to testify to Congress as Congress had requested.

    5 weeks later, Victoria said on FOX that her client was ready to go but that she was putting together the 10 page summary she had to file with the committee chair. That was 5 WEEKS ago. WHY HASNT THIS BEEN DONE?

    Seems like a Trey Gowdy-type move on Victoria’s part. All talk, all posturing but nothing actually is done.

    I only caught part of this, so I am posting this to see if any of you heard the entire show and can correct me if I am wrong.

      I really loathe Bob “The Forehead” Ferguson, AG. He thinks his RESIST moves are going to parlay him a job as the Governor when Gov. Jay Inslee becomes President of the US.

      Sadly, while they are both annoying cucks, they have not realized they would no longer have the support of their party. They are both white men, cisgender even. They can’t scrub the stink of privilege off of themselves. They are the wrong sex, wrong color, wrong gender identification, just wrong in every way to lead the Dim Party of the Future.

        Governor Inslee signed an Executive Order prohibiting state agencies and law enforcement from assisting I.C.E., but it had nothing to do with private companies. I’d like to know what law A.G. Ferguson thinks is being broken.

      How many times have we already heard Melania did not want DJT to run for office?

      First Lady Melania has debunked that story a thousand time if not more it seems.

      All of this is BS. We know it, anyone with two brain cells they can rub together knows it.

      All the Progtards are are one trick slime.

    Just heard a Charles Payne Hour report on Bannon.

    The reporter said Bannon was contacted and admits he made the comments in the book.

    However those remarks were made in the summer of 20167, FWIW.
