Bannon said who he is, and named his scam. Only I bothered to peek behind the curtain.

I’m an economic nationalist”.

What Bannon truly is, is a ECONOMIC TERRORISTS AND EXTORTIONIST, who should be arrested NOW because he brought our government to a halt, and, may collapse the world economy! Bannon created a job for himself ‘Economic Bomb Defuser’. He has been hawking his Scare Tactic for years. When he saw that Scary Trump might win, he strapped an explosive vest to him, because Mr. Money Man fell for the con of the century! Has the Queen come to believe only Bannon’s Brain can follow the maze of wires, and cut just the right one – before it explodes taking out all the money of the rich and powerful.

“Bannon liked being characterized as a villain because he believed it showed the cluelessness of liberals and the media”,[81] while The Independent said that Bannon had “beaten the liberal media to the punch by comparing himself to the devil”.[83] In the same interview, Bannon declared “I’m not a white nationalist. I’m a nationalist. I’m an economic nationalist”.

Listen to these videos where Bannon talks about the fifty trillion dollars that had to be secretly pumped into the economy, or, all the banks would fail. This happened while George W. was in office. George is not talking. This leaves Bannon all by himself, walking down Pennsylvania Ave, to defuse The Trillion Dollar Time Bomb! You don’t have t worry about Putin playing games with Trump’s mind, because Bannon’s got his Big Sucker on the line, and playing him out – BIG TIME!. We’re watching our President being walked in the park. ‘There’s a sucker born every minute.”

Bannon calls OCCUPY “brown-shirts” so Belle is back in the mix. The Grizzly Coalition is a Sarah Palin think tank. She was a Beauty Queen. She went up to Trump Tower to strip in front of Bannon&Trump, then strut her stuff down the catwalk, They stuffed money in her G-string. She is spreading the Terrifying Good News amongst her End Time Tribulation friends who have given up on waiting for the Rapture and Jesus. There’s a new kid, and new game in town! Of course there are New Chosen Ones. There are only so many people that can be……IN THE KNOW!

Those tweets are ticks of the bomb. Trump&Bannon have been getting a big kick as they watch the world panic.

Trump responded to the ongoing controversy over Bannon’s appointment in an interview with The New York Times, saying, “I’ve known Steve Bannon a long time. If I thought he was a racist, or alt-right, or any of the things that we can, you know, the terms we can use, I wouldn’t even think about hiring him.”[

Senate Democrats on Tuesday refused to attend a committee vote on two of President Trump’s more controversial nominees, effectively delaying their consideration.

Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee boycotted votes to advance Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), Trump’s pick to head the Department of Health and Human Services, and Steven Mnuchin, his selection to head the Treasury Department. The pair had been among some of the more contentious selections to join Trump’s Cabinet.

Republicans expressed outrage at the move, while Democrats gathered outside the Senate Finance Committee hearing room to outline their gripes with the selections.

“I can’t understand why senators, who know we’re going to have these two people go through, can’t support the committee,” said Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah).

“I’m very disappointed in this kind of crap. … Some of this is because they just don’t like the president.”

“This is the most pathetic thing I’ve seen in my whole time in the United States Senate,” he added.

Democrats walked out of the Senate Finance Committee hearing room, arguing that Mnuchin and Price misled senators in their testimony before the panel, and saying they could not allow a vote to proceed without more information.

“He misled Congress and he misled the American people,” Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), the top Democrat on the panel, said of Price.

Democrats said they wanted to bring Price and Mnuchin in for further questions, saying some of their statements did not line up with the facts.

“We have great concern that Chairman Hatch is asking us to vote today on two nominees who out and out lied to our committee,” said Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio).

Both Price and Mnuchin had been targeted fiercely by Democrats on a range of ethical issues. Price was pressed on his investment activity in various medical companies, and whether he improperly mixed his political activity with his personal portfolio.

And Mnuchin’s time at the head of OneWest Bank, and whether it treated homeowners facing foreclosure fairly, was central to his testimony.

Minutes before a scheduled vote on the pair, Democrats said the nominees still had to clear up matters.

Hatch said he would try to hold a vote on the nominees later in the day.

Breitbart News

Main article: Breitbart News

Bannon was a founding member of the board of Breitbart News,[45] a far-right[3][13][23] news, opinion and commentary website which, according to Philip Elliott and Zeke J. Miller of Time, has “pushed racist, sexist, xenophobic and anti-Semitic material into the vein of the alternative right“.[13]

In March 2012, after founder Andrew Breitbart‘s death, Bannon became executive chair of Breitbart News LLC, the parent company of Breitbart News.[24][46][47] Under his leadership, Breitbart took a more alt-right and nationalistic approach toward its agenda.[48] Bannon declared the website “the platform for the alt-right” in 2016.[15] Bannon identifies as a conservative.[49][50][51] Speaking about his role at Breitbart, Bannon said: “We think of ourselves as virulently anti-establishment, particularly ‘anti-‘ the permanent political class.”[52]

The New York Times described Breitbart News under Bannon’s leadership as a “curiosity of the fringe right wing”, with “ideologically driven journalists”, that is a source of controversy “over material that has been called misogynist, xenophobic, and racist.” The newspaper also noted how Breitbart was a “potent voice” for Donald Trump‘s presidential campaign.[53]

Political career

Donald Trump campaign

On August 17, 2016, Bannon was appointed Chief Executive of Donald Trump‘s campaign to become President of the United States.[46][49][54][55] He left Breitbart to take the job.[24]

People protesting against Trumps appointment of Bannon an alleged white supremacist and racist

On November 13, 2016, Bannon was appointed chief strategist and senior counselor to President-elect Donald Trump.[56] This appointment drew opposition from the Anti-Defamation League, the Council on American–Islamic Relations, the Southern Poverty Law Center, Democrat Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, and some Republican strategists, because of statements in Breitbart News that were alleged to be racist or anti-Semitic.[1][2][57][58][59]

Ben Shapiro,[59][60][61] Bernard Marcus of the Republican Jewish Coalition,[62] Morton Klein[63] and the Zionist Organization of America,[62] Pamela Geller,[64] Shmuley Boteach,[65] and David Horowitz[66] defended Bannon against the allegations of antisemitism. Alan Dershowitz first defended Bannon and said there was no evidence he was anti-semitic,[67][68] but in a later piece stated that Bannon and Breitbart had made bigoted statements against Muslims, women, and others.[69] The ADL said “we are not aware of any anti-Semitic statements from Bannon”, while adding “under his stewardship, Breitbart has emerged as the leading source for the extreme views of a vocal minority who peddle bigotry and promote hate.”[70] Shapiro, who previously worked for Breitbart, said that he has no evidence of Bannon being racist or an anti-Semite, but that he was “happy to pander to those people and make common cause with them in order to transform conservatism into European far-right nationalist populism”,[71] an assertion supported by other sources and by his alluding to Front National politician Marion Maréchal-Le Pen as “the new rising star”.[72]

On November 15, 2016, Rhode Island Representative David Cicilline released a letter to Trump signed by 169 Democratic House Representatives urging him to rescind his appointment of Bannon. The letter stated that appointing Bannon “sends a disturbing message about what kind of president Donald Trump wants to be”,[73][74][75] because his “ties to the White Nationalist movement have been well documented”; it went on to present several examples of Breitbart News’ alleged xenophobia.[76] Bannon denied being a white nationalist and claimed, rather, that he is an “economic nationalist.”[77]

On November 18, 2016, during his first interview not conducted by Breitbart Media since the 2016 presidential election, Bannon remarked on some criticisms made about him, stating that “Darkness is good: Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s power. It only helps us when they get it wrong. When they’re blind to who we are and what we’re doing.”[78][79] The quote was published widely in the media.[78][80][81][82][83] The Daily Mail said the quote showed that “Bannon liked being characterized as a villain because he believed it showed the cluelessness of liberals and the media”,[81] while The Independent said that Bannon had “beaten the liberal media to the punch by comparing himself to the devil”.[83] In the same interview, Bannon declared “I’m not a white nationalist. I’m a nationalist. I’m an economic nationalist”.[78][81]

Trump responded to the ongoing controversy over Bannon’s appointment in an interview with The New York Times, saying, “I’ve known Steve Bannon a long time. If I thought he was a racist, or alt-right, or any of the things that we can, you know, the terms we can use, I wouldn’t even think about hiring him.”[84]

Bannon was appointed to the National Security Council in January 2017, as part of a reorganization of the council by Trump.[85][86]
