  • Steve Bannon says: now is the moment for Boris Johnson

    Johnson, who led the main Brexit campaign in the 2016 referendum, resigned as foreign minister on Monday over May’s strategy which he said was killing the “Brexit dream” with self-doubt. “Theresa May has got a lot of great qualities – I am not sure if it is the right leader at the right time,” Bannon, Trump’s former strategist and a key player in his 2016 election campaign, was quoted by the Daily Telegraph as saying. May’s government was rattled by the departures of Johnson and her chief Brexit negotiator David Davis just days after she appeared to have gained the...

    Pope Francis needs to take tougher action against the United States’ most influential Catholic in Rome, Cardinal Raymond “Breitbart” Burke. The renegade cleric is not only undermining Francis’s reformist, compassionate papacy, and gospel teaching as it applies to refugees and Muslims, but the rebel prince of the church is also using his position within the walls of the Vatican to legitimize extremist forces that want to bring down Western liberal democracy, Stephen K. Bannon-style. Simply put, the Vatican is facing a political war between the modernizing Pope Francis and a conservative wing that wants to reassert white Christian dominance. Burke...

    For a while now democrats have been walking down the road toward self-destruction but more recently they have taken a left turn down the steep slippery bank to perdition. On July 4, normally a happy day full of pride democrats led off with a downer: “Everywhere we look, our most fundamental values are under attack. Thousands of children have been separated from their parents at our southern border. At our highest court, workers' rights are being taken away, voting rights are under assault, Muslim Americans are being discriminated against for their faith, and women's right to choose is under threat...

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Nick Cooke, owner of Black Swan Books in Richmond, called 911 Saturday afternoon after witnessing a woman confront Bannon and call him a “piece of trash.” Cooke said Bannon was minding his own business when the woman began harassing him. Cooke asked the woman to leave. She did so only after he called police.

    Every four years Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government hosts aides from opposing campaigns for a frank postmortem of the presidential election. Harvard has been doing this since 1972 and usually the discussions are respectful. But according to the Washington Post, that’s not the case this year. When Trump’s team praised Steve Bannon, former Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri lashed out. .... Joel Benenson, another Clinton strategist said, “There were dog whistles sent out to people.. . .Look at your rallies. He delivered it.” Conway responded, “Guys, I can tell you are angry, but wow.” She added, “Hashtag he’s your president. How’s that?...

    WASHINGTON — Stephen K. Bannon, 10 months removed from the job of chief strategist to President Trump and five months after his ouster from the arch-conservative news site Breitbart News, is betting that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies can disrupt banking the way Mr. Trump disrupted American politics. Mr. Bannon won’t reveal very much about his cryptocurrency plans — he worries that the controversy that comes with his name could have a bad impact on projects just getting off the ground. But he has had private meetings with cryptocurrency investors and hedge funds where he has discussed working on so-called initial...

    Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon publicly defended Attorney General Jeff Sessions from the attacks he’s facing from President Trump. Trump has privately and publicly blasted Sessions’ decision to recuse himself in the federal probe into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, most recently on Wednesday, writing on Twitter he wishes he’d chosen someone other than Sessions. But the President is “wrong,” Bannon told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria in an interview set to air Sunday. Trump pressured Sessions on at least four separate occasions last year to take back control of the Russia investigation, but Session refused, Axios reported. Sessions’s decision to recuse himself...

    U.S. President Donald Trump’s former aide Steve Bannon sought to use personal information collected online to promote “a culture war,” a whistleblower on now-defunct political data firm Cambridge Analytica told U.S. senators on Wednesday. Bannon, a former Cambridge Analytica vice president, “saw cultural warfare as a means to create enduring change in American politics,” testified Christopher Wylie, who says information about tens of millions of Facebook (FB.O) users ended up in Cambridge Analytica’s hands. Bannon’s attorney William Burck did not immediately respond to an email request for comment on Wylie’s testimony....

    Derek Harvey, a top adviser on the Middle East to President Donald Trump, was fired from the National Security Council on Thursday. Harvey's departure comes amid speculation about major shake-ups at the White House, the Weekly Standard reports. These shake-ups include possible conflicts between Trump and both Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Two sources told the Standard that Harvey's departure was not a direct product of staff fighting, but that several top administration members saw Harvey as too close to White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon. Harvey was apparently a strong advocate of Trump's decision...

    Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has spoken with people in the West Wing and in Congress about a new plan to knock the Russia investigation off the rails, according to a new report. The Washington Post reported Wednesday night Bannon has a proposal he is presenting to people in President Donald Trump's circle. The plan is designed to protect Trump as the Department of Justice probe into Russia collusion continues. The multi-pronged approach, according to the Post, includes firing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, instructing the White House to stop cooperating with FBI special counsel Robert Mueller, and...

    People walk past the building that houses the offices of Cambridge Analytica in central London, March 20, 2018. Share WASHINGTON — Long before its controversial roles in the 2016 Brexit vote and U.S. presidential election, Cambridge Analytica influenced elections in Africa. The data mining company, under fire for its alleged use of 50 million Facebook accounts to shape campaign messages for then-candidate Donald Trump, also played a role in elections in Kenya and Nigeria, according to new reports. The company's first involvement in Africa dates to the general election in South Africa in 1994. That election marked the end of...

    Steve Bannon tried to distance himself from the Cambridge Analytica scandal on Thursday, claiming: “I didn’t even know anything about the Facebook mining.” Bannon is a former vice-president and board member of the political consultancy, which he agreed he “put together.” He claimed to a conference in New York that neither he nor Cambridge Analytica had anything to do with “dirty tricks” in the use of information harvested from Facebook to make computer models to sway elections. Besides, he said, “Facebook data is for sale all over the world”. {snip} He blamed any “dirty tricks” on Cambridge Analytica’s parent company,...

Bannon, who had been working for Trump as chief strategist until August last year, is currently on a tour of Europe, during which he visited Italy for the climax of the country’s election campaign last weekend. The former executive chairman of the right-wing Breitbart News described the success of the 5-Star movement and the far-right League as an “earthquake” and Italy’s version of the Trump vote. …

    House Republican leaders are weighing “further steps” to force former top White House strategist Stephen K. Bannon to answer investigators’ questions in their probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 election — including potentially declaring him in contempt of Congress — after a Thursday interview they called “frustrating.” Bannon came to speak with the House Intelligence Committee under a subpoena the panel issued on the spot last month, when he refused to answer questions related to the transition period and his tenure in the White House. The interview came after Bannon met with investigators in special counsel Robert S. Mueller...
  • Bannon Must Challenge Robert Mueller in Court (Prosecutorial Misconduct)

    01/25/2018 9:55:44 AM PST · by Moseley · 13 replies
    Prosecutorial misconduct is a serious matter. It proved fatal to the prosecution of Senator Ted Stevens in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Criminal Case No. 1:08-cr-00231-EGS, before Emmett G. Sullivan, District Judge. Robert Mueller’s violations of U.S. Department of Justice regulations and ethical requirements of the legal profession are even worse than the tongue-lashing from Judge Sullivan on April 7, 2009, in the bungled prosecution of Stevens. Mueller’s ethically-challenged lawyers did not take the lesson in Anna Stolley Persky, “A Cautionary Tale: The Ted Stevens Prosecution,” Washington Lawyer, October 2009. Because of prosecutorial misconduct in Nevada,...
