Steve Bannon Is Now At War With Everyone Except Roy Moore
DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

- Hollywood fraud Meryl Streep still can’t bring herself to talk about what she knew and when she knew it when it comes to her “god,” Harvey Weinstein, but she damn sure can go back 39 years take a shot at Dustin Hoffman for a slap in a scene from Kramer vs. Kramer, which she says now was “overstepping.” So, take that, all you 80 year-old actors who no longer have enough influence to help Meryl Streep command $20 million fees for making movies!

- Speaking of Hollywood, the Golden Globes Awards kicks off that debased community’s months-long awards season this weekend, and the big thing to know about it is that all the actresses will be wearing black to “honor” the victims of sexual harassment. It will be interesting to see how many of the black dresses sport navel-revealing necklines, another grand Hollywood tradition.

- Meanwhile, in a show of solidarity, all the men will also be wearing black tuxedos. Which, given that’s what the men have always worn to these events, doesn’t really show much solidarity at all, does it? Seems more like a protest action to me.

- The University of Michigan has a new curriculum on the subject of “How to Deal With Being White.” Since I was 14, I’ve dealt with it by getting up early in the morning and going to work, treating everyone I deal with with courtesy and respect, and not becoming a burden to society. But I’m sure there are other ways.

- Wednesday, January 3 was the deadline day for the FBI and Justice Department to honor a request by the House Intelligence Committee to turn over documents related to the Democrat/Media created Trump/Russia collusion fantasy play, a request that both DOJ and the FBI have been stonewalling since last August. Rather than meet their legal obligations in the matter, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein went up to Capitol Hill to have a meeting with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. One would hope Ryan told the two men to get the hell out of his office and go obey the law they’re charged with enforcing, but somehow one lacks much confidence that that’s what actually took place. In any event, the deadline has passed with no production from the FBI or DOJ, so the ball is back in congress’s court. With “law enforcement” officials like this, who needs criminals?

- Fire broke out at the Chappaqua, NY home of Bill and Hillary Clinton on Wednesday, and speculation immediately ran rampant on Twitter that the two lifelong crooks were just burning more records of wrongdoing. Personally, I figured Hillary had just resorted to dealing with Bill’s latest bimbo eruption by using a Molotov Cocktail.

- Well, if you wondered why Steve Bannon lasted less than 8 months as the “Chief Strategy Advisor” – whatever that means – in the Trump White House, yesterday’s events should have resolved all confusion. The guy is nothing more than a tireless self-promoter, and was basically using that position to build his own brand.

- It is not an accident, for example, that what had been a constant Niagara Falls of leaks coming from the White House slowed to a trickle the day after Bannon was fired. It is not an accident that, since that firing, the daily messaging confusion that existed at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has been brought under control.

- Here’s all you really need to know about Bannon offering all those inflammatory remarks to that random book author: Bannon was subject to a non-disclosure agreement that he signed when he went to work on the Trump Campaign in August of 2016. So, putting his name to a binding contract obviously means nothing to the guy, if violating it might elevate his personal public profile.

- Ironically, Bannon told the audience for Breitbart Radio early Thursday morning that “nothing will ever come between us and President Trump and his agenda” adding that “we’re tight on this agenda as we’ve ever been.” You could’ve fooled the President, who said on Wednesday that “Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency…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.”

- Call me silly, but somehow, it seems unlikely that the President is going to be having Mr. Bannon over for afternoon Diet Coke and Big Macs anytime soon.

- So now, Steve Bannon is at war with the Democrats; he’s at war with establishment Republicans; he’s at war with the rest of the fake news media; and after yesterday, he’s at war with the White House and the President. What does it say about a guy when it appears that the only person left in America who he is not at war with is failed Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore?

Just another day in Steve Bannon’s at war with almost everyone America.

That is all.

Don’t need to drag Judge Moore into it. The man absorbed a multi-million assault from his own party, and was largely on his own in defending himself against lies and misrepresentations.

He didn’t win the election, but calling him the “failed Senate candidate” doesn’t help our party, and seems more like an attack after the fact on Judge Moore than yet another attack on Steve Bannon.

ummmm...he’s a failed senate candidate. Calling him what he is does no harm to anyone. That’s just silly talk.

For those following Q Anon, Q says it’s an act (Bannon vs Trump is an act).

No conservative called Ronald Reagan a failed candidate after he narrowly lost to Ford in 1976. There are times to you loaded language. I saved my fasiled candidate language for RINOS, lefties, and weasels like Romney and John Ellis Bush. Moore doesn’t deserve that treatment.

Comparing Roy Moore to Ronald Reagan is like comparing a Timex watch to a Breitling. Stop it.

Q is just testing to see how gullible people are.

The answer will likely be. ‘In some cases, very gullible.’

In 1976, Ronald Reagan was unable to wrest the GOP nomination from a sitting president who had all the advantages of incumbency.

In 2017, Roy Moore managed to lose a senate seat in a state that Donald Trump won by 30+ points.

The two events are not in any comparable. Nor are the two men.

If you actually listen to one of Bannon speeches you’d have no problem with him, unless you are a Free Traitor™.

I thought Trump was wrong to fire Bannon and not to support Roy Moore.

I’m starting to think that his judgement was pretty good after all.

(That in no way means I think Roy Moore is guilty of anything. Just that Trump was right in assessing him as unelectable.)

As someone asked me yesterday, to what end?

Totally agree with that. The problem with Bannon is not his speeches in public; it’s is behavior in private. This should be obvious to anyone by now.

I was glad to see Bannon go, but I know a couple of folks who worked on the Trump campaign and had gotten very negative feedback about him from them.

For the record, I also doubt Roy Moore was guilty of the things the women accused him of. But he’s a world class squirrel who was bound to become an embarrassment to the GOP one way or another.

The Luther Strange voters stayed home for the general.

Your earlier post stated that being a failed candidate was factually true. The same would go for Ronald Reagan in 1976.

Both men had the establishment wing of their own party working against them. In Moore’s case, it happened for most of the general election campaign. Judge Moore is a good man who was attacked by bad and misinformed people.

Moore was more a cartoon character than Foghorn Leghorn.

It’s hard to fathom anyone being dumb enough to let Wolff in the WH. His books have all been called half truth, half fiction. Seems like Bannon would already know who he is but even if he didn’t, it takes less than a minute to look him up on the web.

Speaking of Roy Moore, has anyone heard from Gloria Allred and her “clients”? They seem to have just disappeared.

Funny, isn’t it?
