To a flummery, go, and quickly too. Farewell.
…Steve Bannon is thinking bigger than Breitbart.
Axios’ Jonathan Swan hears Bannon has told friends he sees a massive opening to the right of Fox News, raising the possibility that he’s going to start a network.
· Bannon’s friends are speculating about whether it will be a standalone TV network, or online streaming only.
· Before his death in May, Roger Ailes had sent word to Bannon that he wanted to start a channel together. Bannon loved the idea: He believes Fox is heading in a squishy, globalist direction as the Murdoch sons assume more power…
This is altogether predictable, wholly part and parcel of the Trump phenomenon. Bannon, Miller, et. al. have only been interested in creating a parallel universe that will rain proper glory upon them. And no one has ever thought of that before, right folks? Because let’s face it: they’ve been failures in this world their whole lives. Fifty years of bitter feelings and hot talk, what has it gotten them? A racist blog and fifteen minutes of the headline entry on memeorandum.
And right after they finally get up to the plate, only to stare at three fastballs down the pipe, what do they do? Say the same damn thing. ‘Watch me now, I’m really going to hit a Home Run.’
“The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over … I feel jacked up … Now I’m free. I’ve got my hands back on my weapons. … I am definitely going to crush the opposition. There’s no doubt.”
Right, Fonzi. You too are finally free to chase your dreams.
…Lewandowski appears to have been pitching clients around the world by offering not only policy and political advice, but also face time with President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and senior members of their administration, according to documents and interviews…
The previously unreported firm, Washington East West Political Strategies, was created by Lewandowski and fellow Trump campaign veteran Barry Bennett — as well as an Azerbaijani oil executive and an American political consultant who works extensively in Russia — to prospect for political business in Eastern Europe. And Lewandowski and Bennett have created different firms with other partners to prospect in the Middle East, Canada and Central America, Bennett said.
Amazing how these titans of white rebellion get defenestrated by Trump only to turn around and offer picture postcards of the jerk. Now that Stevie Wonder Bread’s hands are free, and firmly fixed on his weapons…
…Bannon declared he’s taking his West Wing infighting to the outside, telling Bloomberg Businessweek’s Josh Green that he’s “going to war for Trump against his opponents — on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America.”
He’s rowing straight out to the Titanic. With a song in his heart, and a fiddle in his hands. These rugged Caucasians are quite remarkable, with their high I.Q. and everything. Winners every one of them. If only the rest of us were more like them.
But I shouldn’t be surprised by any of this [not. typing post.]. If anyone were fixed to bail on the glorious cause, at any moment, because that’s been the habit of his entire life…
Instead, Trump launched his presidential bid as a means of increasing the value of his brand, thereby extracting more favorable terms in his negotiations with NBC over the next season of The Apprentice. But the ploy backfired — while, paradoxically, working too well…
The story also seems consistent with Vanity Fair’s report that the candidate has been mulling the creation of his own conservative cable-news empire, once the campaign is through. The magazine wrote that “the presumptive Republican nominee is examining the opportunity presented by the ‘audience’ currently supporting him,” and had “discussed the possibility of launching a “mini-media conglomerate.”
…it’s our Glorious Leader, i.e. the man who started then destroyed Trump Steaks, Airlines, Magazine and Vodka.
There’s no question that Donald can be forced from office. There are a whole host of scenarios which would ultimately force his hand. We just need to figure out which ones these are. Then we need to be prepared to see even more of Donald Trump, not less. Because none of this has been about public service.
