The Importance of Being Bannon

If Trump Loses Bannon, Trump Loses the Presidency

By Robert Barnes  at American Thinker:

“I bet big on Donald Trump in the 2016 elections, rather famously.  Now I will be shorting Trump stock for the foreseeable future until Bannon, and Bannon-ism, returns to policy dominance in the White House.

Should Trump ever lose Bannon entirely, Trump is a lame duck.  Some media suggest that Trump could replace Bannon with Jared Kushner.  Jared Kushner is to Steve Bannon what Dan Quayle was to JFK.

Bannon – uniquely among the Trump team – threads together the policy weaves of the Trump electoral majority, a majority dependent upon newfound GOP support from the working class, especially in the northern half of the country, but also the southern upcountry and Appalachia.

Three issues allowed Trump to distinguish himself, both in the GOP primaries and in the general election, to appeal to these GOP skeptic voting constituencies:

  1. No preachy politics.  These voters want neither Southern Baptists nor Hollywood celebrities lecturing them about morality nonstop.  They generally take a more libertine approach on marijuana, especially amongst the younger cohorts in this constituency.  (Many of these communities were moonshine communities back in the day, especially the Appalachian communities.  You will find a not too surprising overlap between marijuana and moonshine communities historically.)  The Appalachian communities and their kindred constituencies cast decisive votes in more places than West Virginia, Tennessee, Indiana, and Kentucky.  Appalachia dips into Pennsylvania and Ohio, helped make Virginia competitive, tipped the balance in North Carolina, and shares a lot in common in political mindset with places like the Minnesotan Iron Range, the northern woods of Wisconsin, the peninsula of Michigan, and the countryside of Iowa.  They are often Christian but more likely to be Saturday party-goers than Sunday church-goers.
  1. No more dumb war.  Voters from the ancestral regions of the Union draftees after the Civil War – from northern Maine to the Minnesota Iron Range – have, ever since, instinctively viewed war with suspicion.  Study the voting patterns of this kind of county, and you will find that sudden surges turn out to oppose various wars.  The heart of “isolationism” was a Midwestern phenomenon in the same regions that tilted so heavily toward Trump in the election.  It is not a coincidence that areas with historic antiwar tendencies – from east Tennessee to western Wisconsin, from rural Iowa to northern Maine – were some of the biggest pro-Trump trending areas in the country, nor that two states that formed the heart of antiwar politicians in the past (like Ohio’s Taft) bolted so heavily toward Trump.  Trump used his war-skeptical views to outflank the war-loving Hillary on both the working-class left and right, giving him the keys to his electoral majority, heisting Bernie primary voters along the way.  Betray this group with another Mideast war, and Trump endangers his electoral majority permanently.  That is where Bannon’s inclusion in national security decisions remained critical for Trump’s own political future…..”    (There’s more below!”

“Gorsuch Will Be Confirmed Next Friday!”……McConnell

McConnell: Gorsuch will be confirmed next Friday

by John Sexton  at HotAir:

“As Democrats continue to march toward a showdown in the Senate over the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said today that Gorsuch would be confirmed next week.

“As you know, next Monday Gorsuch will come out of committee, will be on the floor of the Senate next week and confirmed on Friday,” McConnell told reporters Tuesday. He continued, “Judge Gorsuch, as you know, is extraordinarily well qualified. It’s almost amusing to watch our Democratic friends try to come up with some rationale for opposition. Several have suggested.

“Several have suggested that a Supreme Court Justice needs to get 60 votes. In fact, I think you already know, no Supreme Court Justice has ever been stopped with a partisan filibuster. There was one rather unusual exception, the Fortas nomination in 1968, ironically in the middle of a presidential election year in which both sides collaborated to stop the nomination. So no Supreme Court Justice has ever been stopped with a partisan filibuster.”

“That is obviously what the Democratic leader has announced they will do,” McConnell said. “We are optimistic that they will not be successful in keeping this good man from joining the Supreme Court very soon,” he concluded.

During a Q&A, McConnell was asked about the nuclear option and replied, “It will be really up to [Democrats] how the process to confirm Judge Gorsuch goes forward.” Asked if he had the votes to exercise the nuclear option, i.e. changing Senate rules to eliminate the filibuster, McConnell said, “I’m confident that he’ll be confirmed.” That’s about as close as you can come to stating that the nuclear option is going to happen without stating it outright.

Democrats don’t seem very hesitant to take this unprecedented step of a partisan filibuster against Judge Gorsuch, but Republicans seem just as confident he will be confirmed. The Associated Press reports Republican Senator Mike Rounds said today of the nuclear option, “A lot of us really hate the thought of using it. Nonetheless, it may very well be the ultimate outcome because one way or the other, we will have Judge Gorsuch on the bench.”

Dear Dennis….Don’t Worry….Our Donald Is NOT Finished with the ObamaCare Mess Yet….

Dennis has been my favorite American public figure since November,  2004, that time days before the Presidential election when  twerp of twerps, creepy, con-artist, John F. Kerry,  threatened to invade the White House.    Mind you, I know Dennis is rarely  boring.   But, if you’ve never heard him “lose it”  during his radio show, you’ve missed a priceless verbal performance.

In my world priceless Dennis has slipped to second place on my American political love chart…..no fault of his.   His talents haven’t in any way diminished.  He’s been passed by in these twilight years of my life….

I discovered somebody gutsy, honest,  and new suddenly appeared on our American political horizon the evening when  feminist, Megyn Kelly pasted a number of unattractive words this strange GOP candidate running for the presidency was alleged to  have described in private about some women.   She pasted on this Republican candidate for the  the question whether he felt that foul about all women that debate night at Fox Cable network which advertises its political coverage to be “fair and balanced”.

“No”, the candidate answered with expected honesty……”Only Rosie O’Donnell”, he supplied WITHOUT HESITATION and with TOTAL HONESTY!

The entire audience at Fox, most of whom opposed him as I had as any presidential candidate, much less, a Republican one, exploded with laughter fully aware of the Truth of the matter, for no truer answer could have been said.   View the piece for yourselves….August 6, 2015 on Fox….Oh, my…..He actually declared a pig, a pig…..on television, no less.

Being a former teacher of Russian and Social Studies, I researched for more information….and found him, Donald J. Trump, absolutely loaded with talent, humor, energy, ambition, ego, and guts….and not ashamed or dishonest about it all.

It’s true, folks.  He soon after passed by Dennis as my top American hero….and has remained there ever since……

Dennis was slow on the Donald J. Trump draw for President…..He was nasty about the man.   Dennis, my man, why in hell didn’t you invite Our Donald to chat with you on your show time?    You slipped out of character ignoring, berating him, treating him as some Martian.

You failed to be fair………the only occasion upon my notice….but, enough!!!

…..except Our Dennis is “hugely” honest and he, like Our Donald, LOVES HIS COUNTRY, now so abused and attacked by leftist fascists  in control of the once honorable Democratic Party….feminists, black racists, illegal aliens, college mouthy know nothings, along with the mental  boors controlling education, television news and urban newsprint, and those dictating Marxism at colleges and universities from American coast to American coast.

I presently am trying to recover from knee replacement surgery.   The beauty of today’s morning sent me out early to continue putting  winter in  my landscape garden away for the Spring season.  Radio   Dennis where I live, appears on radio shortly after 11:00 AM Central Daylight Savings Time, it used to be called, so I had about an hour in the grounds before performing my listening to Dennis duties.

Dennis has  been invigorated by our New President….as I knew he would be……I knew he’d come to adore Our Donald as much as I…..for they both, along with me, so terribly love our country and are truly worried about the fascist inroads made endangering our once free society by the recent Obama administration and all of his ilk, including Hillary, and certain Republicans here and there..

I have seriously gardened here in Minnesota where I have lived  for more than 40 years. My landscape garden abuts a pond.  I  have the longest water front,  over 250 feet of shoreline to  the pond which I share with five neighbors….And it’s Canadian Goose invasion time this past week, time when the male-led flocks fight for the right to own their own watering space.   Studying them as they vie for status and position is a rite of Spring at my gardened grounds.    It’s another culture to study especially when  the wood ducks and mallards “Spring”  up at the same time for observation.

For three years I  had seen the same goose couple settle at the same water’s edge next to an attractive concrete bench  overlooking the widest expanse of the pond.     I love spying on  the couple while they arrange their nest.  And there they were this very morning arriving at the same spot doing the same thing Canadian Geese couples do….for they are ‘married’ for life……quite unlike  our modern American marriages these days.

The he goose simply sits in the pond water about four feet off shore, looking mean everywhere with a belch or two of piercing noise, if needed. And the she is working feverishly, skillfully, artistically putting pieces together.   I am mesmerized when I see them together, making their space where the eggs  to be laid and protected.

Last year she laid seven eggs with all of them hatching.   It was a tough April, however, for there were two snow storms one of which nearly buried the mom who was flattened out for about a week to keep the young-uns alive.   I love watching them….I love being outdoors in my gardened grounds……but, I had to leave as spectator in order to listen to Dennis’s woes of our conservative day.

Country before Garden…..but this morning it was a tough decision to make.

Dennis was truly worried about the future of the country….again…as all Americans should be…He moaned about the terrible defeat the Republicans and Our Donald suffered with the failure of RyanCare to replace ObamaCare.

I was disappointed, too….although against RyanCare, I thought Dennis-like, that it would be better to unify the Party behind Representative Ryan.   I am not a Ryan fan….He was loony too often about his ditzy emotional  dislike for Our Donald before Mr. Trump won the critical  election making him President.   Republicans  should have developed  a workable  plan ready to go.   Last Friday, however, the RyanCare plan had to be withdrawn from the House.  The votes to win were not there.

Oh my how the mindless at Fox blasted Trump and administration for the failure…..Television reports Left were even more brutal….”Our Donald’s mystique had been shattered….His Presidency was over the CNN folks memorized.

Dennis was truly upset as well.   I wasn’t.  I was proud of Our Donald for putting the ObamaCare replacement effort into Republican hands rather than his.   (Personally, I am not in favor of universal ObamaCare like “care”.   Health care should not become factory labor,  the ObamaCare way.

There became a mild set back…if Truth were to be told.  Hardly one at all, for Our Donald is still President, despite what CNN, MSNBC, NBC, PBS, ABC, CBS, and Fox, and the fake news of the American Press reported.

Dear readers….do you think for one minute  Our Donald has accepted  the GOP’s Health Care loss as final?   Do you really think it is in his DNA?   Where would it come from?

He will place the bill in his own hands with his own head following many inquiries, will  plot the best bill of them all……and will have it passed with  a margin at that.

I, like Dennis, thank GOD the guy is President….Yes, he’s a TRUE conservative who loves his country……and will  MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

 

Schumer Dictates Filibuster to Halt Gorsuch Path to Supreme Court, so.. GOOD RIDDANCE FILIBUSTER!!!

Democrats to Filibuster Gorsuch, Thanks Be to God

The Democrats will force the GOP Senate to trash the phony judicial filibuster. That helps us on the next Supreme Court fight.

Full PBS NewsHour Election Day Coverage…2016

The American communications system in our time is overwhelming leftwing….Of the   following major American television political stations, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, CSpan, only Business Fox was conservative,  rather consistently supporting Donald J. Trump for the presidency…..Most of the political at Fox itself were Republican in some way or another, but only a handful were enthusiastic regarding our Donald becoming the 45th president of our great nation.

I have spent about 30 hours reviewing the American television industry’s coverage of the evening of this wonderful American event, the Donald Trump victory of November 8, 2016.   None of these television centers expected a Trump victory

PBS, CNN, and MSNBC were by far the most antiTrump ‘reporters’ throughout the evening……PBS, perhaps the most ‘religiously’ liberal rather than leftist in political propaganda, was that evening indeed prejudiced against Republicans in general, but against Our Donald in particular.   His victory was a shock…..a shock they accepted as a staff reluctantly, but honorably as true Americans.

David Brooks, the ‘declared’ Republican paid to be so by PBS, as well as NEVER Trump guy, Stuart Stevens, were most stunned, with Brooks presenting the tongue to predict the grim future for the country…..  MSNBC’s staff led by Chris Matthews became unraveled,  angry, wild, and unforgiving for the occasion they refused to accept.  CNN’s gang with the exception of a whisperer or two, was entirely lefty.

ABC, CBS, NBC staffs were all in a tizzy.   CSpan was boring.

The folks at PBS, living news  in their leftist closets for the past half century, nevertheless remained quite adult, despite their political preference for things “Pelosi”.

Chris Wallace: “One of the best speeches a president has ever given to Congress”

Chris Wallace: Trump Delivered One Of The Best Speeches In That Setting I’ve Heard Any President Give

by Tim Hains at realclearpolitics:

“‘Fox News Sunday’ anchor Chris Wallace puts President Trump’s speech to the joint session of Congress in historical context.

He said Donald Trump “reinvented” the joint address to Congress, and called it: “by far the best speech I’ve ever heard Donald Trump give.”

“It was one of the best speeches in that setting I’ve heard any president give,” he added……”   …….Please continue.  Newsman Wallace stars at the Fox Network usually browbeating Republicans no matter how small the brow, mostly to support the channel’s politics as “fair and balanced”.  Don’ miss his assessment:
