In a day when it’s all but impossible to tell the good guys from the bad, the progressive left is doing truth seekers an unwitting favor.
While ‘Trump the Russia Colluder’ has been replaced as ‘Trump the White Supremacist, and while we were all waiting for yesterday’s solar eclipse, the ProgressiveLeft/Mainstream Media Cabal was mounting the takedown of Breitbart’s returning star, Steve Bannon.
Breitbart is arguably the most powerful of the few media outlets not in the tank with the progressive left who have now determined ‘Breitbart’s got to go!’
‘Sabotage Steve’ would be an apt name for their latest hell-bent-for-leather mission.
There can be little doubt that their tactics leave Bannon and Breitbart up against all odds.
Getting the message to the masses when there’s an ongoing digital lockdown on the truth is making Steve Bannon the left’s Enemy Numero 11, second only to hated President Donald Trump.
While the hate-inspired progressive left continue to shoot from the hip, more often than not missing their mark by a mile, Bannon is out there shooting straight from the lip.
The price is already being extracted in Big BOOM style:
“Celebrities and Twitter users have taken to the social network to call on online retail giant Amazon to pull its advertisements from right-wing Breitbart News. (Washington Examiner, Aug. 21, 2017)
“On Monday, an activist group campaigning against Breitbart said it has pressured nearly 2,600 companies to withdraw their advertisements. The company confirmed the boycott.
“The calls come as former White House adviser Steve Bannon, who was let go from the administration last week, has resumed his position as head of the organization.”
Get a load of their over-the-top reason:
“The website is known for publishing controversial content including conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama.”
“Conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama?”
In trying to take down America, through its unwelcome and unsolicited “Fundamental Transformation”, both Clinton and Obama are the biggest conspiracies of our day.
Hard to pin down whether Bannon’s clear and present danger will be coming from the White House or the progressive left/mainstream media cabal.
Bannon has revealed that a Liberal nesting comfortably in the White House War Room, just happens to be the president’s daughter.
Watch for the same progressives who began targeting Ivanka Trump after inauguration to come running to her rescue now that Bannon’s let the proverbial cat out of the bag.
What could possibly be more auspicious for them than to have one of their own so close to the president’s heart?
The New York Times has tried to get ahead of Bannon’s ‘Liberal in the White House’ revelation:
“Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon celebrated Chief of Staff John Kelly’s ability to prevent Ivanka Trump from influencing her father through unscheduled emotion-laden visits to the oval office. (Daily Caller, Aug. 21, 2017)
“Those days are over when Ivanka can run in and lay her head on the [president’s] desk and cry,” Bannon told multiple people, according to The New York Times.
“Bannon, who saw his influence decrease after the conclusion of President Donald Trump’s campaign, often lamented Ivanka’s presidential access. Bannon viewed Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, whom he referred to as “Javanka,” as a political liability and likely to alienate Trump’s base by rejecting the national populist agenda that won Trump the White House.
“Kelly, who was appointed July 28, immediately brought a previously unseen degree of discipline and process to the chaotic West Wing. Kelly quickly established himself by exercising tight control over Trump’s access to information and personnel, ensuring control of the latter by instituting a strict closed door policy in the Oval office.
“Jared and Ivanka clashed with Bannon over their appeals to moderate republicans and independents on issues like immigration. Bannon pushed back against their agenda, arguing that their futile attempts to appeal to an unreachable constituency would imperil support from their base.
“They hate the very mention of his [Trump’s] name,” Bannon told the duo. “There is no constituency for this.”
“Kelly informed Bannon in late July that he would be required to step down, and the pair mutually agreed that Bannon would leave quietly in mid August. Bannon’s clash with fellow advisors over Trump’s response to the Charlottesville riots complicated his departure.
“Bannon characteristically counseled Trump to remain adamant in his initial characterization of the Charlottesville riots as the product of criminality on both sides of the political spectrum. Bannon once again found himself isolated as the rest of Trump’s advisors convinced him to release another statement explicitly condemning the actions of the neo-Nazis present in Charlottesville.
“Kelly agreed to move Bannon’s Aug. 14 departure to Labor Day so as to avoid the appearance that he was being dismissed over disagreements related to Trump’s Charlottesville’s response.
“Bannon hastened his departure by contradicting Trump’s position on North Korea in an interview with The American Prospect, in which he also called for the dismissal of some in the administration.”
If Bannon is sincere in his self-professed fight to save the Trump presidency, Bannon’s will be a hard row to hoe.
Suspecting that Ivanka is a liberal at heart, some fear that because of her admitted friendship with Chelsea Clinton, that Jamiie S. Gorlick, former Deputy Attorney General of the U.S. from 1994 to 1997 under the Clinton administration, is both friend and counsel to Ivanka and husband Jared Kushner, some see Ivanka as her loving father’s Achilles Heel.
Some would insist that Twitter and Breitbart have been Trump’s top two stalwarts during his presidential campaign and after inauguration.
With Valerie Plame Wilson fundraising to buy Twitter so she can delete Trump’s account even though her Go Fund Me page has raised only $3,000 since August 16, and Bannon now operating as an outside the House independent, the fight’s become a classic Battle Royale. (Washington Examiner, Aug. 21, 2017)
Then, of course there’s the apoplexy unleashed by the progressive left that Breitbart with Bannon back in the lead is said to be contemplating a news network to give FoxNews a run for their money.
None of this is to even mention the suppression of all conservative news sites by the ganging up on them by social media, including Internet giants Google and Facebook.
Getting out a conservative message has about as much chance of survival of butterflies in a tsunami.
Meanwhile all calls for cooler heads to prevail have been patently ignored ever since Trump’s election.
But no matter how chaotic it gets, keep prayer and not hatred in your heart.
