New Yorker Festival drops Bannon from lineup amid backlash from TDS-infected celebrities

Some of these celebrities who have butt hurt about Bannon are people who have a platform to trash others who aren’t of the same political persuasion:

  • Jim Carrey: Uses his “art” to trash Sarah Huckabee Sander’s looks and religion
  • Judd Apatow: Used profanity in a stand-up gig to trash Melania and Barron Trump
  • Patton Oswalt: Retweeted about the “long list of targets” that terrorists have when it comes to then- President-elect Donald Trump’s worldwide holdings. “Trump has properties all over the world. Terrorists will have a long list of targets that are literally owned by POTUS and bear his name,” a Twitter use wrote. Oswalt responded by retweeting the tweet and adding, “Holy f–k. Come ‘n’ get it, terrorists!”

More hypocrisy and intolerance from “the tolerant” left.

From Hollywood Reporter: After news that Steve Bannon will be a featured speaker at the upcoming New Yorker Festival drew sharp criticism from numerous bold-faced names, the festival has dropped Bannon as a speaker.

The news came after several famous faces, including Judd Apatow, Jim Carrey, Patton Oswalt and John Mulaney, all tweeted that they were canceling their scheduled appearances at the event.

The New Yorker tweeted late Monday that Bannon had been dropped from the lineup and that it was New Yorker editor David Remnick’s decision.

New Yorker editor David Remnick put out a statement Monday that he had decided to drop Bannon from the speaker lineup.

“I don’t want well-meaning readers and staff members to think that I’ve ignored their concerns,” he said. “I’ve thought this through and talked to colleagues — and I’ve re-considered. I’ve changed my mind. There is a better way to do this. Our writers have interviewed Steve Bannon for The New Yorker before, and if the opportunity presents itself I’ll interview him in a more traditionally journalistic setting as we first discussed, and not on stage.”

He also explained his rationale for originally including Bannon on the lineup.

“The main argument for not engaging someone like Bannon is that we are giving him a platform and that he will use it, unfiltered, to propel further the ‘ideas’ of white nationalism, racism, anti-Semitism and illiberalism,” he said. “But to interview Bannon is not to endorse him. By conducting an interview with one of Trumpism’s leading creators and organizers, we are hardly pulling him out of obscurity. Ahead of the mid-term elections and with 2020 in sight, we’d be taking the opportunity to question someone who helped assemble Trumpism.

Organizers announced the lineup early Monday of speakers including Apatow, Mulaney, John Krasinski, Jack Antonoff, Oswalt, Christine Baranski, Zadie Smith, Carrey, Jimmy Fallon and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

But the speaker drawing the most attention on social media is Bannon, the controversial former White House chief strategist who served as executive chairman of the right-leaning Breitbart News before joining Donald Trump’s campaign as chief executive in August 2016. He exited his White House position a year later.

Bannon was set to take part in a talk with Remnick titled “The Ideology of Trumpism” on Oct. 5, the first day of the three-day New Yorker Festival.

The news was met with criticism on social media from many famous faces, including Hollywood A-listers like Apatow and Ava DuVernay and the New Yorker’s own staff.

For his part, Remnick earlier told the New York Times: “I have every intention of asking him difficult questions and engaging in a serious and even combative conversation. The audience itself, by its presence, puts a certain pressure on a conversation that an interview alone doesn’t do. You can’t jump on and off the record.”

Still, TV and movie producer Aditya Sood noted that Bannon was previously featured on the festival’s main page but had since been removed.

Later Monday, Oswalt, Apatow, Carrey and Mulaney tweeted separately that they were going to pull out of their planned appearances.

It's War: Bannon takes on anti-Trump GOP establishment, as George Soros enlarges his army with $18B

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 15:35:12 +0000

eowyn2

Sean Moran reports for Breitbart, Oct. 18, 2017, that after declaring his plan to dislodge establishment Republicans in next year’s primary elections, Steve Bannon — Breitbart News Executive Chairman and former Trump White House chief strategist — has begun meeting with big Republican donors who are frustrated with Congressional Republicans’ inability to pass any significant legislation, such as repealing and replacing Obamacare, tax reform, and funding a southern border wall.

Bannon reportedly is lining up a series of primary challenges who he believes will back President Trump’s agenda, against GOP incumbents and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Bannon said at the Values Voter Summit last week:

“Yeah, Mitch, the donors — the donors aren’t happy. They’ve all left you. We’ve cut your oxygen off, Mitch, OK? Money is not courageous, but money is smart, OK?”

Andy Surabian, a senior adviser to the Great American Alliance and ex-White House aide, told Breitbart News:

“We’re planning on building a broad anti-establishment coalition to replace the Republican Party of old with fresh new blood and fresh new ideas.

The only thing the Republican establishment has succeeded in is clarifying to the American people that they don’t represent their interests. Their repeated failures to govern have only crystallized their lack of vision or backbone. The group of candidates we are looking to support in 2018 are all bound together in their agreement that the new Republican Party must be bold in their thinking and aggressive in their tactics.”

Here are the big GOP donors with whom Bannon has met:

  1. Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus, who had donated, in the last six months, $2 million to a super PAC aligned with McConnell, as well as tens of thousands of dollars to the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), only to watch the Senate fail repeatedly. Marcus signaled that he is willing to back Senate Republican primary challengers, although he will give Republicans until the end of the year to pass significant legislation and then weigh his options. Marcus’s adviser Steve Hantler said, “Like many donors, if the gridlock continues in Washington, Mr. Marcus will consider new approaches to breaking the gridlock, including those proposed by Steve Bannon and others.”
  2. Venture capitalist John Childs, who recently donated $400,000 to McConnell’s 2014 reelection.
  3. Gore-Tex heiress Susan Gore, a major backer of libertarian causes.
  4. Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, one of the Republican party’s most prominent donors.
  5. Eric Crown, the longtime backer of Senate GOP reelection efforts.
  6. Wyoming investor Foster Friess, who is so frustrated with the Republican establishment that he’s exploring a possible primary challenge to Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY).
  7. Dan Eberhart, an energy executive and past NRSC contributor who’d stopped donating to the Republican party. As he explained, “I’m extremely frustrated with that whole complex. I feel like they’re asking us to reward failure.”

In addition, Bannon also pitched his 2018 midterm strategy against Republican incumbents to major donors in New York City yesterday (Oct. 18).

Even Vice President Mike Pence urges Republican donors to withhold their donations and give to GOP primary challengers if Congress fails to pass President Trump’s agenda. Pence’s Chief of Staff Nick Ayers said,

“Just imagine the possibilities of what can happen if our entire party unifies behind him [Trump]? If — and this sounds crass — we can purge the handful of people who continue to work to defeat him.”

Steven Bannon will need a huge war chest because evil financier George Soros is assembling one of the world’s largest “foundations” to promote and engineer the most destructive leftwing causes.

The Wall Street Journal reports (via Los Angeles Times), that George Soros is pumping $18 billion (more than 78% of his $23 billion estimated net worth) into his Open Society Foundation, making it one of the world’s largest “philanthropic” organizations.

The Open Societies Foundation has funded a host of programs around the world, including Black Lives Matter in the U.S., and “refugee relief” in Europe.

Alex Jones: President Trump is being drugged


On August 18, 2017, after one year of being Donald Trump’s campaign adviser and White House Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon confirmed that he had left the White House. He said (source: The Weekly Standard):

The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over. We still have a huge movement, and we will make something of this Trump presidency. But that presidency is over. It’ll be something else. And there’ll be all kinds of fights, and there’ll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over.”

I have my reservations about Alex Jones, not least of which is that there are good reasons to suspect he’s actually the supposedly-dead Bill Hicks. See:

My reservations aside, what Alex Jones said yesterday, September 11, on his InfoWars TV show, is simply too important to ignore.
Claiming his source as “high-level sources” — “people who talk directly to Trump” — Jones said that like President Ronald Reagan, President Trump is being drugged.

Note: Reagan was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s dementia in 1994, 5 years after he left the White House. On June 5, 2004, he died of pneumonia, complicated by Alzheimer’s.

Beginning at the 12:15 mark in the video below, Jones said:

“I was told this by high level sources, and it was evident and especially after [President] Reagan was shot in his first year in office when he was acting like Trump and doing the right things, he [Reagan] never really recovered. They gave him [Reagan] cold blood and his transfusion that causes brain damage. They slowly gave him small amounts of sedatives. It’s known that most presidents end up getting drugged — small dosages of sedatives till they build it up.
Trump’s such a bull, he hasn’t fully understood it yet. But I’ve talked to people — multiple ones — and they believe that they are putting a slow sedative that they’re building up that’s also addictive, in his Diet Cokes and in his iced tea, and that the President by 6:00 or 7:00 at night is basically slurring his words and is drugged.
Now first they had to isolate him to do that. But yes, ladies and gentlemen, I’ve talked to people that talked to the President now at 9:00 at night, he is slurring his words, and I’m gonna leave it at that. I’ve talked to folks that talk to him directly.
So notice, ‘Oh, he’s mentally ill, he’s got Alzheimer’s!’. They isolate him, then you start slowly building up the dose . . . so that you get an immunity to it. You’re building it slowly so that the person doesn’t notice it. First, it’s almost zero, just a tiny bit. Then a little more, and then your brain subconsciously becomes addicted to it and wants it. And so as the dose gets bigger and bigger, you get more comfortable in it. The President’s about two months into being covertly drugged.
Now I’m risking my life by telling you all this. I was physically sick before I went on air…. This is the kind of thing that gets you killed.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttXgFlXriHo&feature=youtu.be&t=12m8s
If President Trump is slurring his words by 6 or 7 p.m., wouldn’t his wife Melania notice it?
I don’t watch TV news. Readers who do, have you noticed any changes to President Trump’s appearance, speech and demeanor?
Please pray for President Trump. Pray for America.

Boycott: Upcoming Emmy's hosted by Stephen Colbert, who makes Nazi salute in criticism of Trump

stephen colbert

CBS must be so proud of this hack


Trump basher Stephen Colbert is hosting the Emmy’s this year which is scheduled for September 17 on CBS. Expect the award ceremony to be a full-on production of Trump Derangement Syndrome. I for one will not be watching this show full of elite, hypocritical narcissists.
From Daily Mail: Stephen Colbert, the host of CBS Late Show who has been one of President Donald Trump’s most vocal critics, is once again generating controversy on Friday after he made a Nazi salute in reference to Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon.
Colbert, CBS’s late night star who once made a crude remark about President Donald Trump’s relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, returned to host his show this week after a two-week hiatus.
In his opening monologue, Colbert cracked jokes about Bannon, the now-departed White House aide who returned to head alt-right news site Breitbart. Colbert’s jokes were interspersed with clips of Bannon talking to Charlie Rose of 60 Minutes in an interview.
CBS has released portions of the interview in which Bannon is heard talking about a number of issues, including Trump’s controversial reaction to the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last month.
Trump was criticized for blaming ‘both sides’ after an anti-racist counter-protester was killed and 20 others were injured when a suspected neo-Nazi ploughed his car into a crowd of people on August 12.
In his 60 Minutes interview, Bannon defended Trump’s response to Charlottesville. ‘By the way, after the Charlottesville situation – that’s what I told John Kelly – I was the only guy that came out and tried to defend him,’ Bannon told 60 Minutes. ‘I was the only guy that said, “He’s talking about something that’s… taking it up to a higher level”,’ he said.
That’s when Colbert interjected.
‘Yeah, he’s definitely taking it to a higher level. I’d say his support is about up there. Right around here,’ the former Colbert Report host said as he stretched his arm out to a 45-degree angle with his fingers extended similar to how the Nazis used to salute Adolf Hitler.
‘Or over here,’ Colbert said, adjusting his arm to give another mock Nazi salute. ‘Somewhere up there.’
Colbert has drawn criticism in the past for controversial statements about Trump. On his May 1 broadcast, he lashed out at the president during his opening monologue, when he remarked that ‘the only thing [Trump’s] mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c*** holster.’
The broadcast sparked thousands of complaints to the FCC, which launched a review. The agency eventually declined to take any action against Colbert.

Huffington Post goes racist on resignation of Steve Bannon: 'Goy, Bye!'

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 20:20:10 +0000

eowyn2

The shocking news came this morning that Steve Bannon, President Trump’s White House Chief Strategist and former CEO of Breitbart credited with helping Trump win the 2016 election, had resigned two weeks ago, on August 7.

But the news is awash in ambiguity.

The New York Times reports:

President Trump has told senior aides that he has decided to remove Stephen K. Bannon, the embattled White House chief strategist who helped Mr. Trump win the 2016 election, according to two administration officials briefed on the discussion.

The president and senior White House officials were debating when and how to dismiss Mr. Bannon. The two administration officials cautioned that Mr. Trump is known to be averse to confrontation within his inner circle, and could decide to keep on Mr. Bannon for some time.

Meanwhile, this is how Huffington Post reacts to Bannon’s resignation:

Goy (plural “goyim”) is the Hebrew pejorative word for a non-Jew.

Why HuffPost would make an issue about Bannon’s ethnicity is baffling because under CEO Bannon, Breitbart News has always been pro Israel.

HuffPost‘s racist “Goy, Bye!” headline was met with outrage from even anti-Trumpers:

  • Keith Olbermann tweeted, “WTF?”
  • New York Post‘s Jewish contributor Seth Mandel tweeted: “Someone at HuffPo thought this headline was a good idea.”

So HuffPost quickly changed the headline. Alas, the Left being what they are, the new headline “White Flight” is no less racist and race-baiting as the previous “Goy, Bye!”. (Breitbart)

UPDATE:

As of this afternoon (Friday, Aug. 18), Bannon has returned to Breitbart News as its Executive Chairman.

Bannon told author Joshua Green:

“If there’s any confusion out there, let me clear it up: I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents — on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America.”

According to the Gateway Pundit:

Breitbart News is plotting to go ‘thermonuclear’ against ‘globalists’ inside the Trump administration. Bannon may also be personally gearing up to take on the Drudge Report’s Matt Drudge.

According to former Trump aide Sam Nunberg, Bannon believes Drudge ‘accelerated’ his White House exit driven by continuous negative coverage.

Speaking of Drudge Report, I’ve been perturbed by Matt Drudge’s negative links on Trump and, frankly, no longer read Drudge Report or use it as a news source. I suggest that conservatives do the same.

Paydirt Bar in Oregon offers free whisky for life to punch Trump's chief strategist Steve Bannon

And to think liberals/Democrats/Progressives never cease to congratulate themselves on their “tolerance”.
Cassandra Fairbanks reports for Big League Politics, May 14, 2017, that Paydirt, a whiskey bar in Portland, Oregon, is offering free whiskey for life to its patrons if they would “punch” Trump White House chief strategist and conservative nationalist Steve Bannon.
As proof, here’s a receipt from Paydirt with the offer printed on the bottom:

Under 18 U.S.C. § 875, 18 U.S.C. § 876 and other statutes, it is a Class C or D felony to threaten public officials other than the president, which carries maximum penalties of 5 or 10 years. It is also against the law to solicit violence against public officials.
On election night, 2016, Paydirt was so confident Hillary Rotten Clinton would win, the bar offered a free champagne toast to the “future Madame President”. Its advertisement said:

“Election Night at Paydirt: Free champagne toast to our future Madame President. And if that doesn’t happen? Whiskey!”

When Donald Trump was inaugurated as President, Paydirt donated a portion of its inauguration day sales to kill unborn human beings at Planned Parenthood. The bar advertised on its Twitter account @paydirtpdx:

“Inauguration Day is not going to be easy. We’ll be donating a portion of ALL sales this Friday to Planned Parenthood. Come drink with us.”

The bar also featured a Trump pinata and frequently uses anti-Trump imagery in their advertisements.
The email account listed on the Paydirt website was inactive when Fairbanks reached out to the bar for comment. Phone calls to Paydirt were not answered by the time of publishing.
The bar is owned by Ezra Caraeff, who also owns The Old Gold bar, also in Portland. In February, Old Gold bar receipts had a message printed on the bottom, encouraging violence against Trump supporters whom Caraeff calls “Nazis”:

“Is it Okay to Punch a Nazi? Yes.”

Caraeff has locked his Twitter account and that of Paydirt, as well as taken down Paydirt’s Facebook page.
Here are the addresses of Ezra Caraeff’s bars. Make sure you tell your friends and acquaintances who live in Portland to shun them:

Paydirt
2724 NE Pacific
Portland, OR 97232

West Wing star Bradley Whitford launches tirade at Ivanka Trump for ‘enabling hatred’

bradley-whitford
Yes, he’s wearing a “p*ssy hat.”
From Yahoo: One of the stars of US television programme The West Wing has fired a broadside at Ivanka Trump, accusing the President’s daughter of “enabling hatred” after her call for religious tolerance.
Bradley Whitford, who played White House deputy chief of staff Josh Lyman in the political drama, responded to Ms. Trump’s message with a diatribe against her father’s policies, his attempt to dispute Barack Obama’s place of birth, and also took aim at her husband Jared Kushner and the President’s senior adviser Steve Bannon.
He also made reference to Ms. Trump’s women’s clothing business, which was the subject of controversy after her father Donald Trump publicly attacked a retailer that said it was no longer stocking her products.
Whitford managed to fit all of his grievances into the 140 character limit of one tweet.
Ms. Trump’s original message on Twitter said: “America is a nation built on the principle of religious tolerance. We must protect our houses of worship & religious centers.”
Whitford responded with: “Your father is a racist birther, Steve Bannon an anti-Semetic opportunist. You and your husband are enabling hatred. F*** your shoes.”
Whitford is not the first West Wing star to attack the Trump administration. In January Whitford’s former co-star Richard Schiff told TMZ that Mr. Trump was “dangerous,” and said the President would “do anything to delegitimise the press.”
