          I like Bannon and was defending him here few times from echo chamber attacks – only because :

          Plato Trump is my friend, but truth is a better friend.” *

          Having said that, I just recently watched The Brink, which Bezos’ IMDB describes as “a fly-on-the-wall chronicle of embattled former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon’s global mission to spread extreme nationalism.”

          Regardless of full context of the documentary, I found rather disturbing that disgraced Michael Wolff is one of the ‘flies-on-the-wall’ whose bald ugliness pops up through two separate occasions depicting Bannon’s private events with exclusively selected audience.

          And, although – unlike majority of CTH commenters – I do 100% support Bannon’s observation about unflattering correlation between Ivanka and brick *, it was hard to me to find any decent reason for this seasoned Breitbartarian still being associated with Shallow State Scribes such as Wolff.

        Roger Stone’s trial is set for Nov 5th in the court of the Hon. Amy Berman Jackson. Should be quite a show if there is a trial, which I doubt. Mueller should have never brought this case in the first place and it has become so politicized that it’ll have the appearance of a show trial to half of the country. It’s hard to see that Stone communicating with Wikileaks is even remarkable given his occupation, much less against the law unless you subscribe to the more elaborate and increasingly preposterous Trump-Russia-Wikileaks conspiracy theories. Maybe Mueller can prove that Stone made false statements to Congress about some of his emails on the assumption that they were somehow relevant to a legitimate matter under investigation but that’s for the jury to decide. Process crimes are Mueller’s forte.

          That came from Bannon’s battles with the “reformed” Demonrat who badmouthed his father-in-law… until he was nominated, of course… and Bannon’s disagreements directly with Trump when he sided with the Demonrat on topics like immigration, LEGAL and otherwise.

          P.S. If it had not been for Bannon’s guidance on what topics to target during Trump’s campaign, Trump might very well not be president.

          BTW, here’s another influential person who helped with that:

            Besides, it’s more than evident by now that PT is his own man, makes up his own mind. If the President had gripes about Bannon, I’m certain that no one made the President have that opinion other than the President himself.

            One of President Trump’s traits I noticed as far back as 2015 is that he’s a natural-born team player. That’s his preferred way of working—clearly enough he expects the people he hires to work productively with all team members.

            Individuals can be brilliant in their domains, but if not able to give and take flexibly, if they’re selfish or oppositional, team spirit suffers and progress is impeded. The President rightfully won’t put up with that kind of behavior very long.

            Bannon wasn’t a team player, a characteristic the President wouldn’t abide and eventually he was fired. So I think you’re right, there’s the story in a nutshell.

      From Sarah Sanders in January, 2018

      From press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders:

      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.

      My 2 cents.

      The Establishment was/still is trying to isolate the president— To cut him off from non-establishment advice. Mcmasters, Kelly, Priebus, all swamp dwellers, many still there–while Mueller they continued to work the coup. They took out Sessions first…kneecapped him. Rosenstein advised to fire Comey knowing it would trigger Special counsel. Y’all know all this. I got most of what I know from Sundance. Bannon was undermined maybe by Jared, maybe by someone else. Christie was gotten rid of, a tough, smart lawyer. Flynn as mentioned below…Bannon. it is still going on. But POTUS survived Weissman and the rest of the Hillary supporters on Muellers team and now Flynn has Sidney Powell. Trump can’t fire his son in law but he can stoo listening to him.

      How POTUS survived that 1st year surrounded by traitors to him I don’t t know.
      The 2020 election is the key…it would be nice to get the house but as Ryan showed Republicans are part of the problem. Pelosi Galore is a pain in the tush but the country sees the obstruction. With the house in GOP hands the obstruction was blamed on Trump.

        In 2004, Christie, then the US attorney for New Jersey, investigated the Kushner family patriarch Charles. The tale that ensued is a salacious one that involves illegal campaign contributions, videotapes, and a sex worker. Christie’s prosecution culminated in a prison sentence for Charles Kushner.

        A decade later, Christie became a prominent supporter of Trump’s presidential candidacy, and Trump named him to lead transition planning. But just after the election, Christie claims, Jared Kushner engineered Christie’s ouster.

      Zippy, much of that short-term thinking is fueled by the federally-mandated quarterly-based reporting requirements, rather than bi-yearly.

      Those reporting requirements set up demands from investors to show profits on every quarterly statement, which, of course, is flawed thinking. Those requirements also pushed CFOs to manipulate company numbers.

      Were we to drop those federally-mandated requirements, long-term thinking might stand a chance of coming back into executive and investor thinking.

      Mexican Navy Seizes A Whopping 52,000 Pounds Of Fentanyl, Intended For The US
      27 Aug 2019

      https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-08-26/mexico-navy-seizes-whopping-52k-pounds-fentanyl-intended-us

      According to a new report from Mexican newspaper Tabasco Hoy, the Mexican Navy intercepted 23,368 kilograms (51,517 pounds) of fentanyl at the Port of Lázaro Cárdenas, the largest Mexican seaport and one of the largest harbors in the Pacific Ocean.

      The Secretariat of the Navy said joint work between the Naval Unit of Port Protection No.63 and the Tenth Naval Zone and Customs at the port uncovered the illicit drug in a 40ft shipping container. Preliminary reports show the container wasn’t entirely filled with fentanyl.

      The vessel was a several hundred-meter container ship flying a Danish flag, in which according to its freight manifest, the fentanyl was identified as “Calcium Chloride.”

      Navy and port officials completed a random search of the unnamed vessel, and when they carried out specialized Customs laboratory testing of some of “Calcium Chloride,” it turned out to be fentanyl.

      Within one container, there were 931 sacks of fentanyl, totaled a gross weight of 23,368 kilograms (51,517 pounds). The container ship came from Shanghai, on China’s central coast, and was eventually going to drop off the cargo in Culiacán, the capital of the state of Sinaloa.

      Median income (earnings) is the amount that divides the income distribution into two equal groups, half having income above that amount, and half having income below that amount.

      Your numbers are out of date for NY state, median income (earnings) for 2017 was $64,894 per household, median family income per family $80,114, and per capita $37,153.

      The only median income number for Shanghai was from 2015 an listed as 48,000 yuan which is in today’s currency US$6, 771.84. The yuan has been devalued since 2015, so the value of the 2015 median income of 48,000 yuan has decreased with China’s currency devaluations in the past year.

          I’d certainly agree that it’s way past time to end the scandalous “lobbying” (aka bribery) of our government officials from all sources, foreign and domestic.

          While China is a chief culprit, the infiltration of foreign influence in corporate conduct, e.g., Nike, NBA, Disney, etc., blurs the distinction between “foreign” and “domestic” these days.

          AFAICT President Trump is working hard to rectify the situation. His efforts to revitalize “Main Street” is likely to revitalize investment in and commitment to American values by Main Street businesses.

          To be sure there’s a role to be played by government. Highly desirable for government to enforce domestic ownership rules for vital, security-related enterprise. But that requires clearing out the corruption that now infests our public systems.

          I expect it will take a determined and protracted effort to accomplish the goals you cite. And that’s exactly the reason we must assure PDJT is reelected. It will be at least a good start on the path to success.

    Well, Steve looks good there, so he must be off the sauce. He’s a good guy, plain speaking, never was cut out to work in the White House or any other executive office though. I’m sure he and Trump speak, now that the dust has settled. He’s somebody I’d want to speak with if I was Trump.

    I agree with him that Biden is done, and the Uniparty will scramble to get one of their own into that D nomination. I don’t think the primary electorate will have Hillary though. They’re probably going to have to purchase Warren as a commodity, which shouldn’t be too hard. She’s already taken their cash and has made herself right at home in the Swamp. Warren will attack Bloomberg savagely, on several fronts, and he’ll lose on the woman thing with the SJW types.

    Steve’s got the China situation pegged dead on, too. I do wonder how much spare cash some of these masters of the universe are losing these days, because of what Trump’s doing re China. Their normal channels of heisting cash are getting cut off, bit by bit. Their normal methods of buying elections and candidates may not work, even if they have spare cash to fund them. They used their methods with Hillary and failed spectacularly. Do they even want to double down and try to buy this election? I can see them surrendering and just submitting to Trump’s inevitability.

      His friendship with Andrew Breitbart (pictured above) alone makes him tops with me. He doesn’t get everything right, but he’s better than most.

          HIs red nose was a dead giveaway, in addition to his own public admissions that he has an alcohol problem. It seems you’re the one who’s believing everything you read, instead of using the data that’s right in front of you.

          Hey, there a plenty of alcoholics around. It’s not that they’re alcoholic that matters, it’s what they do about it. He looks sober in that interview. That’s a good day. He just needs to have another, and maybe another. That’s how it works.

    Surprised Bannon let them get away with Saudi Saudi Saudi, which is programmed into every Democrat. My immediate response would have Iran Iran Iran, which every Democrat avoids mentioning at all cost.

    Granted he mentioned the reformation underway by MBS, but I would have stopped their premise in it’s tracks.

    The finalization is still four to five weeks away. A lot can happen in the interim.

    RE Bannon pronostications:

    Hillary C.: Alinsky disciple, expert at lying, cheating, stealing, and bleach bitting. Loves to sell America to the highest bidder and known for having been associated with with a lot of individuals who are became corpses prematurely.

    Bloomberg: a most autocratic personality who feels it’s OK to impose his personal choices on anybody else, did not hesitate to buy the entire NY city council to get to be Mayor for a third term, and would take your guns away in a NY minute, dxmn the 2nd amendment.

    What a competition they would be for PDJT! I think Steve Bannon missed the can this time, but we shall see.

    The comments here RE: Bannon have little to nothing to do with what the man said and everything to do with treepers just whining about things they know little to nothing about.

    “Poor steve Bannon, he isn’t president”. What?

    Us trumpets deserve to lose should we eat our own – that’s what the left does. Bannon has done nothing but fight for our causes. Stop with the 3rd grade anti-full grade negative crap. He’s a good soldier. We need every soldier on the field.

    Sorry. Just comment after comment has my blood boiling.

      Agree 100%. What we have here is an example of right-wing PC – if you are in any way critical of or have a disagreement with our “Great Leader” as Bannon does, you are 100% incorrect on everything you say and are banished. But Trump’s “reformed” formerly 100% Demonrat son-in-law having a large amount of influence in the WH, that’s OK, and we must not criticize him.

      IF IT WEREN’T FOR BANNON’S CAMPAIGN GUIDANCE, TRUMP MIGHT NOT EVEN BE THE PRESIDENT RIGHT NOW.

      Agree.

      Bannon would not be quoted or featured here if Sundance thought he lacked credibility. Certainly his statements here are very insightful.

      Bitching and whining about the person featured by the article that the blog host described in positive terms is rather Off Topic and doesn’t address the points Bannon made in the video.

    The title should be Steve Brannon Discusses the Corruptive Influence of China Upon American Politicians! If we had honest politicians looking out for America like President Trump rather than their own personal financial security China’s influence would be minimal on our Capitalism! The secrecy of our Federal government has lead to corruption every bit as much as the corrupting power given to members of Congress based on longevity! Corrupt China Communist Party members find American politicians easy targets, willing to approve deals that benefit only China as long as they or their family benefit financially! As Grandma says we a a fake Congress like we have a fake southern border wall! Godspeed President Trump!

      If China hadn’t been allowed into the world economic and financial systems with a veto vote on those being available to the U.S. at the time and given a most favored nation status to boot, China would still be just a much larger North Korea instead of -THE- increasingly dangerous, primary geopolitical adversary it is today. The DUMBEST MOVE our corporate and political “elites” (gag!) could have ever made for the people of this country.

    Decades ago my father owned a company which was quite successful, but like most companies, it had it’s lean times. During those times, my father wouldn’t take his salary until every employee had been paid, and if he had to use his salary to meet payroll, that’s what he’d do

    That’s when American companies were American. They looked out for not only their employees but also the communities in which they were in

    America lost it’s way when Americans allowed big business and big politics to form an alliance. The classic Main Street vs Wall Street

    America became ripe for the picking when we entrusted the business and political apparatus to take over, and local control ceded to national control

    The Globalist cabal moved in, and formed a gang with corporations, implementing Marxist ideology which they knew would draw in the progressive suckers they needed to work the lower echelon of we the people

    We’ve been had, duped and hung out to dry

      mikeyboo: I believe Bannon means she is a centrist as compared to the other Dem candidates specifically with regard to the economy. She is a capitalist – and globalists must have capitalism. Social issues she will do whatever the crazy base wants and go far left because, as Sundance so brilliantly put it, the UniParty does not care about that. The Uniparty cares about the benjamins and probably view her as centrist in this area vs. the other candidates.

    I agree with Bannon about US being put on the path to decoupling from China due to the CCP’s leadership mentality. Trump will either decouple from China or China will be changed in a fundamental way that will point the way to freedom for the Chinese people. This confrontation when the smoke settles will not leave China the same again. It is facing a truly seminal moment in its history right now. The problem for Xi is that Trump knows how to play his cards, is willing to play them and he has all of the trump cards on top of all that!

    China and the US will sign a deal in November or else Trump will place the 30% (tranche 1) and 15% (tranche 2) tariffs that are looming. Trump loss no leverage in Phase 1 negotiations. The so-called Phases to me is just marketing by Trump to pacify the markets. It allows Trump to push off China negotiations past the election without undue market volatility. It’s highly unlikely that China will agree to the enforcement mechanism surrounding intellectual property because it will expose China for the frauds they are and have been. The amount of fines that they will end up paying will be massive! They can’t possibly agree and right now, China is looking to water down the penalties as much as possible so as to not suffer the embarrassment and the massive costs for their thefts!

    I think Trump has instructed Lighthizer to make sure that they pay. Maybe they will find a way to pay through massive purchases of agriculture (which brilliantly Trump warned the American farmer may not be able to produce that much! He’s a negotiator!), energy, or better yet, industrial goods that rejuvenates manufacturing in the US like we’ve not seen in a long time! Make no mistake, if somehow China agrees to a deal with the US, they will pay and pay big!

    If as expected, China does not agree to terms, the US will decouple by applying 35% tariffs across the board and moving towards India, Brazil and the ASEAN nations (esp Indonesia) as the fall back for our many supply chains in China to relocate. Trump will secure deals with those nations, even as he closes deals with Japan, UK, S. Korea, and USMCA.

    China is in the most challenging negotiations they been since the British and the opium wars. Can’t be a good feeling for them at this time. Their only hope is Sleepy Joe Biden winning next year and we know our lion won’t let that happen. MAGA!

      I agree with you first two paragraphs, especially the points Bannon makes about the US decoupling from China. I don’t think we can accurately predict exactly when President Trump raises the tariff percentages. He exhibits flexibility in deadlines when China offers “negotiating gifts” such as the recent offer to make large Ag purchases.

      As the 2020 election draws closer, China may think PDJT is under increasing pressure to make more concessions to get a “deal”. I think they’re seriously misreading our President.
