G.O.P. Establishment Declares Open Season on a Weakened Bannon
New York Times ^ | Dec. 15, 2017 | Jeremy W. Peters

Posted on 12/16/2017 9:28:58 PM PST by Trump_vs_Evil_Witch

A small group of conservative leaders had gathered in the Trump International Hotel last week for a friendly discussion about the year that was ending and their priorities for the year to come, when Stephen K. Bannon spoke up.

“I’m not going to name names,” he snapped, looking around the room as he complained about being left virtually alone to defend Roy S. Moore, accused of sexually molesting and assaulting teenage girls, while the Republican leadership and Democrats bludgeoned the Alabama Senate candidate. “If we want to win,” he added, according to three people who were in the room, “We need to stop playing footsie with the establishment. They’re just going to string you along, pat you on your head, and send you on your way.”

.....many Washington Republicans have no intention of patting Mr. Bannon on the head. They intend to kneecap him before he has the chance to recover.

“First is to dry up his money,” said Scott W. Reed, the chief political strategist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a pillar of the Republican establishment, explaining how top Republicans in Washington were making a new round of calls to donors across the country to press them not to donate to Mr. Bannon or the candidates he supports.

Of course, Republicans are in big trouble in 2018.

Along with massive voter fraud,this from LC
http://lamecherry.blogspot.com/2017/12/frontline-of-election-fraud-judge-roy.html

“If you recall that night, Moore held a slim lead in the e vote quick tallies. Moore then began pulling away as the rural districts came in, to moving to 5%. Yet it is interesting in the electronic voting high population black areas, those votes were not being tabulated officially as they should have been, but hung up at 50% of the vote turned in. Once Roy Moore’s strongholds had reported, then suddenly the votes started appearing again from the electronic vote sites, and as if by magic Doug Jones was getting the exact numbers of votes in 60,000 vote surges which Jones needed to steal this.”

I think fake illegals in vans going from voter precinct to precinct which didn't happen is a con. The real real fraud, of out of state busses going from precinct to precinct along with stuffing ballots in a major way were all just diversionary. The real voter fraud was electronic theft.

The primaries are the key. If Bannon can slay the RINOS and get MAGA candidates on the ballot in the general then we will win. Go Bannon!

Zactly.

They blew a gazillion dollars over 6 seats to get one win and it wasn’t a win of the better product.

Some think that Rush says about 20-30% of what he knows,very well could be.

Rush is paranoid about bringing everyone on board all the time which is one of the big secrets to his massive numbers. Everyone understands what he is saying and where he is going.

If lots of people can't follow what he his saying he is just one of the other broadcasters who have not captured the essence of talk radio.

Rush invented modern talk radio.He will always make sure that everyone is on board.

But,that precludes him from covering a lot of what goes on.

...
Yosemite and Rod, yes, this voter fraud and election theft is TRUE...

My question is knowing Bannon knows it, how can he and O’Keefe tackle it and expose it???

Not sure if Trump knows it or if he holds his cards close to his vest.

It has to be true, the numbers are next to impossible.

Weakened is a very subjective term containing the greatest hopes of the GOPe and their fellow travelers on the left. One battle and temporary “victory” does not make a war.

Not sure I agree with the 88% in Macon county being proof of busing in voters. It went 5780 to 758... if they bused in over 5000 people into a county with only 1400 local voters, I'm thinking someone would have noticed and said something.

In 2016, Macon County AL went 7566-1431, 83% DEM. In 2012, it was 9045-1331, 88% DEM. The numbers are consistent for the special election... and a low turnout.

McTurtle, Ryno, et al, can try as they wish. Bannon will be eating their lunch. They figure they won ONE in Alabama and now think they’re unbeatable! Bannon will be handing them their asses, soon!
