Bannon: Trump’s adversaries ‘wetting themselves’

(AMERICAN SPECTATOR) You might think from recent press accounts that Steve Bannon is on the ropes and therefore behaving prudently. In the aftermath of events in Charlottesville, he is widely blamed for his boss’s continuing indulgence of white supremacists. Allies of National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster hold Bannon responsible for a campaign by Breitbart News, which Bannon once led, to vilify the security chief. Trump’s defense of Bannon, at his Tuesday press conference, was tepid.

But Bannon was in high spirits when he phoned me Tuesday afternoon to discuss the politics of taking a harder line with China, and minced no words describing his efforts to neutralize his rivals at the Departments of Defense, State, and Treasury. “They’re wetting themselves,” he said, proceeding to detail how he would oust some of his opponents at State and Defense.


The successful Charlottesville psy-op

With their Russian collusion narrative having fallen apart late last week following a report that DNC’s computers weren’t hacked, the forces aligned against Donald Trump needed a major distraction and new fallback position. One seemingly fell from the sky in the form of the Charlottesville riot.

But it was not a random event. Joining white nationalist Richard Spencer in organizing the “Unite the Right” rally was one Jason Kessler, a former supporter of President Barack Obama, Occupy Wall Street protester and CNN contributor who provided the network with articles sympathetic to the Occupy Wall Street movement. Kessler only joined the so-called “alt-right” just last November.

The Occupy Wall Street protests of 2011 were funded by nongovernment organizations (NGOs) like the National Endowment for Democracy and the United States Agency for International Development and other CIA front groups. Some of these front groups, NED and USAID in particular, have links to George Soros.

Soros and the CIA front groups, with the blessing of neocons like Insane John McCain, Mitt Romney and #NeverTrump faux presidential candidate Evan McMullin (CIA), are behind the Nazi-linked Ukraine “rebels” that executed a successful coup and ousted elected President Viktor Yanukovych.

Why is this important? The slogan for the Ukraine Nazi group backed by U.S. neocons was “blood and soil.” They marched with tiki torches.

Last weekend’s Nazi-sympathizing Charlottesville marchers carried tiki torches and chanted “blood and soil.” The marches turned violent when the Soros-backed fascist group Antifa attacked the marchers. Antifa was supported by various communist groups like the Workers World Party, Triangle People’s Assembly, Industrial Workers of the World and Democratic Socialists of America.

Both groups were prepared for violence. So here we have the communists/socialists opposing the fascists/socialists using violence and controlled by the elite; same as in the World Wars.

The violence culminated in the murder of Heather Heyer when she was run down along with a group of Antifa demonstrators by a car allegedly driven by James Alex Fields Jr. Witnesses report that Fields was seen earlier marching with the tiki torch-carrying group and chanting “blood and soil.” Fields has a history of mental illness and violence against his disabled mother. He is also a reported user of psychotropic drugs. In other words, he is the perfect patsy.

Trump has issued various statements condemning the violence and hatred on both sides. It’s a perfectly rational and truth-based statement to lay blame on both sides.

Yet the establishment remains unsatisfied. The media clamor for Trump to condemn the “alt right” and “white supremacists,” which he’s done. Meanwhile the media try to whitewash the Antifa demonstrators, who fomented violence in Charlottesville — and have before – into victims and opponents of “hate speech.” (Hate speech, by the way, is a code word employed to shut down speech contrary to conventional wisdom.)

But it’s not just the media clamoring that Trump hasn’t said enough, as evidenced by this tweet from Mitt Romney:


Establishment neocon Republicans like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, John Kasich, Paul Ryan, Marco “Little Boy” Rubio, Bush I and Bush II also weighed in, claiming Trump’s denouncement was unsatisfactory.

Little Marco even absolved Antifa of all blame, rationalizing that they were shutting down “evil ideology,” indicating he’s not a defender of free speech.

This has done nothing but further divide the people along race and class lines, and distract from the failed Russian collusion narrative — which is exactly what it was designed to do.

Here I want to candidly remind you that the establishment needs crisis, no matter how much lip service they give to “peace.” Crisis is a well-known Machiavellian strategy to gain and solidify political power and persuade public opinion.

Crisis provides the stage where elites can control all sides. At least they can arrange events to “naturally” unfold.

Fox News host gets death threats after ripping Trump

(VARIETY) — Eboni K. Williams had never received anything like the responses she garnered after she aired her grievances with President Trump while on-air on “The Fox News Specialists.”

The co-host addressed Trump on Monday in her “Eboni’s Docket” segment, which she writes herself, berating him for failing to specify white nationalist groups in his condemnation of the violence that occurred at Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend. She told Variety in an interview on Wednesday that her personal website, which usually receives an average of 10-15 emails after each segment, was inundated with over 150 emails, only three of which were anything other than “seething, scathing” takedowns.

“I should meet my Maker soon, I shouldn’t be allowed to walk the streets of New York,” she cited as some examples of the type of comments she received. “They heard that I live in Harlem — Harlem needs to watch out.” Her book publisher became so concerned that he asked her to request additional security from Fox News, which she did — Williams is now escorted to and from the building when she arrives to work.


This day in WND history: Keyes suggests canceling taxes for slave descendants

Keyes suggests canceling taxes for slave descendants

WND-20-YearsAug. 17, 2004: Republican Alan Keyes came out in favor of giving descendants of black slaves an exemption from federal income tax in his run against Barack Obama for Illinois’ Senate seat.

“When a city had been devastated [in the Roman empire], for a certain length of time – a generation or two – they exempted the damaged city from taxation,” he told reporters in Chicago.

Long an opponent of “reparations,” Keyes said his proposal was different.

“[It] has the advantage of letting people help themselves, rather then pouring money into government bureaucracies that displace and discourage their own efforts,” he said. “It takes no money from other citizens, while righting the historic imbalance that results from the truth that black slaves toiled for generations at a tax rate that was effectively 100 percent.”

What is the alt-left? 5 facts you need to know

(HEAVY) — During his press conference on Tuesday, President Donald Trump put part of the blame for the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia on August 12 on the shoulders of the alt-left. Trump asked a reporter, “What about the alt-left that came charging at the, as you say, the alt-right?” What did Trump mean when he said “Alt-Left”? The phrase has been used in the conservative media for a while and became more widely used when Fox News host Sean Hannity started saying it late last year.

On Tuesday, Trump once again blamed both sides of the protest in Charlottesville on August 12. The protest was organized by white supremacists and the alt-right movement and called “Unite the Right.” The groups were protesting the planned removal of a Robert E. Lee Statue. During the event, a suspect linked to white supremacists plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing one person and injuring at least 19 others.

“OK, but what about the alt-left that came charging at them?” Trump asked a reporter on Tuesday. “What about the alt-left that came charging at the, as you say, the alt-right? Do they have any semblance of guilt? Let me ask you this, what about the fact they came charging with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs? Do they have any problem? I think they do.”


Even liberals aren’t turning out for Al Gore’s new film

Al Gore

Al Gore

Al Gore’s new documentary film appears to be a box-office flop, the latest evidence that the movie-going public has moved on from the issue – global warming – that has made him uber wealthy.

While reviewers for the New York Times and other establishment publications are raving about the new documentary – “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” – the ticket-buying public is responding with a collective yawn. The film placed 15th in the rankings of dollars spent on movies last weekend.

The poor box-office showing prompted one reviewer for the Washington Examiner to muse “Will Al Gore call for a recount?

There’s no denying that Gore’s 2006 Oscar-winning film “An Inconvenient Truth,” was a huge box-office success, generating more than $50 million in revenues.

But the sequel has grossed only about $1 million in its first two weeks.

“Of the estimated $121 million Americans spent at the movies last weekend, less than $1 million was spent on Gore’s sad grab at political relevancy. Perhaps Gore can take solace in the fact that he narrowly edged out for 15th place another liberal-biased movie, ‘Cars 3,’ which targets children with fossil fuel lies via cute talking cars,” noted Joseph Bast, chief executive of the Heartland Institute, in an op-ed for the Washington Examiner. “No word yet on whether Gore is going to demand a recount.”

Some reviewers blamed Paramount’s marketing strategy of not releasing the film nationwide in its first week.

But that’s no excuse for poor performance. “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party,” a documentary by conservative firebrand Dinesh D’Souza, was initially released in only three theaters and has raked in $3 million in its first couple of weeks.

“Despite tens and perhaps hundreds of millions of dollars in free promotion offered by the left-wing media for Gore, Americans didn’t take heed,” wrote Bast. “And after eight straight miserable years of the Obama administration misusing its control of government bureaucracies and schools, assisted every step of the way by the government-aligned left-wing media, the purveyors of climate doom thought they had won the battle of public opinion.”

Surveys and independent reviews of the peer-reviewed literature show Gore has not won the battle of so-called “scientific consensus,” says Bast.

“No matter how many scientists believed the Earth was flat in the 1500s, or warned in the 1970s an approaching an Ice Age, or announced that the ‘Piltdown Chicken’ proved birds evolved from dinosaurs, it didn’t change the facts,” he writes. “The Earth is round, the chicken was a hoax, and we aren’t in a dangerous Ice Age yet.”

Despite the millions Gore has made off of his first documentary, almost all of the film’s dire predictions have failed to come to pass.

He predicted catastrophic Antarctic and Greenlandic ice melts and rising sea levels engulfing millions.

“Instead, Antarctic ice has increased, and Gore even bought a beachfront mansion to prove he didn’t believe it either,” Bast writes.

“Gore also claimed that man-caused global warming would result in more catastrophic hurricanes and tornadoes – but every day that passes sets a new record for a major hurricane failing to strike the U.S. Tornado activity has actually declined since its recent peak in the 1970s, despite the improved ability to find, track, and measure tornadoes.

“Gore also said in his first movie in 2006 that Mount Kilimanjaro would be free of snow on its peak by ‘the end of the decade.’ Guess what? That didn’t happen either.”

Nor did his prediction that the Arctic would be ice-free by the summer of 2014.

“Polar bears didn’t get his memo that they are dying off – drowning, as illustrated in the movie by a lonely cartoon polar bear swimming in an Arctic Ocean with no ice floes upon which to rest and hunt. The polar bear population today is larger and healthier that is has been at any time in the last 50 years.”
