Bannon is Satan incarnate.
Sorry to get all political on you, but the Devil made me do it.
Bannon is unAmerican and the sponsor and spawn of Trump’s extremist mandates.
It is hard to stomach that this insanity is actually happening in America.
These heinous acts are our new reality, dealing in alternate facts.
Over the weekend, without much public fanfare, the President removed the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Director of National Intelligence from the National Security Council.
He replaced them with Steve Bannon!!
Bannon is the ultra conservative propagandist, sexist, white nationalist, anti-Semite and former executive chair of Breitbart News, a far-right news, opinion and commentary website.
Bannon presently serves as Trump’s Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor.
Are you kidding me?!
Bannon has no government, intelligence or high-level military experience.
Bannon is a former naval officer, Goldman Sachs banker and Hollywood investor who receives royalties from Seinfeld.
His defining moment came at a 2005 movie premiere where he met a relatively unknown conservative named, Andrew Breitbart.
Bannon was intoxicated by Breitbart, who saw politics as a fight to save American culture from the insidious politically correct left.
He became one of Breitbart’s closest advisers, helping him grow Breitbart.com from a news aggregator into a leading site for far-right news and opinion in the late 2000s.
Breitbart once called Bannon the “Leni Riefenstahl of the Tea Party movement.”
The comparison to Nazi Germany’s most famous filmmaker and propagandist was meant as a compliment, according to Zach Beauchamp at Vox.
This is deeply concerning.
Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who served under Obama and George W. Bush, called the demotions a “big mistake.”
Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice called the move “stone cold crazy.”
Another former naval officer, Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain, disputed that view, calling it a “radical departure” to elevate a political adviser while diminishing the role of the joint chiefs of staff.
One of the jobs of the NSC is to oversee a secret panel that authorizes the assassination of “enemies of the United States Government,” including American citizens.
These targeted killings are fully authorized by law under the Congressional military authorization act following 9/11.
There is no trial, no due process and no public record of the decision or the assassination itself.
Hope is not lost.
Some good news surfaced on Monday night.
An obscure law was dug up by MSNBC legal analyst Jonathan Alter.
According to section (a)(6) of federal statute 50 U.S. Code 3021, a civilian like Steve Bannon will in fact need to go through Senate confirmation and approval in order to serve on the National Security Council because he doesn’t fit into any of the five listed pre-approved categories.
The Council shall be composed of the President, Vice President, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, Energy and the Secretaries and Under Secretaries of other executive departments and of the military departments, when appointed by the President by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to serve at his pleasure.
The law has remained obscure because no president has ever had the nerve or displayed such egregious behavior as to appoint a political hack to the NSC until now.
The good news is few in either party have shown any love for this racist and the representatives have limitless material for embarrassing Bannon, including beating his wife.
Please, don’t let this bit of good news nullify a call to action by all Americans.
We need your involvement.
Call your Senators and Congressperson this week and demand that they publicly and legislatively oppose Fuhrer Trump’s appointment of Steven Bannon to the NSC.
You cannot make this shit up…this is real, people.
Please, speak out as the bucket list of what is wrong in America since Agent Orange took over, is growing exponentially.
