Steve Bannon: The Trump Presidency That We Fought For is Over

Chief Strategist Steve Bannon Donald Trump

Trump’s Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon, both populist and nationalist, resigned and is going back to Breitbart, but his parting comments were not encouraging to Trump supporters. If Trump is unable to reverse the direction Bannon describes below, this country will continue on an accelerated trajectory towards socialism over the next decade not unlike the powerful and failed nations before it.

“The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over,” Bannon said Friday, shortly after confirming his departure. “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.”
“On August 7th , I talked to [Chief of Staff John] Kelly and to the President, and I told them that my resignation would be effective the following Monday, on the 14th,” he said. “I’d always planned on spending one year. General Kelly has brought in a great new system, but I said it would be best. I want to get back to Breitbart.”

“Now, it’s gonna be Trump,” Bannon said. “The path forward on things like economic nationalism and immigration, and his ability to kind of move freely . . . I just think his ability to get anything done—particularly the bigger things, like the wall, the bigger, broader things that we fought for, it’s just gonna be that much harder.”

Bannon assigns blame for the thwarting of his program on “the West Wing Democrats,” but holds special disdain for the Washington establishment—especially those Republicans who have, he believes, willfully failed to provide Trump with meaningful victories.

And, he believes, things are about to get worse for Trump. “There’s about to be a jailbreak of these moderate guys on the Hill”—a stream of Republican dissent, which could become a flood.

Bannon says that he once confidently believed in the prospect of success for that version of the Trump presidency he now says is over. Asked what the turning point was, he says, “It’s the Republican establishment. The Republican establishment has no interest in Trump’s success on this. They’re not populists, they’re not nationalists, they had no interest in his program. Zero.”

Bannon believes that those who will now try to influence Trump will hope to turn him in a sharply different direction.
“I think they’re going to try to moderate him,” he says. “I think he’ll sign a clean debt ceiling, I think you’ll see all this stuff. His natural tendency—and I think you saw it this week on Charlottesville—his actual default position is the position of his base, the position that got him elected. I think you’re going to see a lot of constraints on that. I think it’ll be much more conventional.”


But he’s not going to stop fighting:

“I feel jacked up,” he says. “Now I’m free. I’ve got my hands back on my weapons. Someone said, ‘it’s Bannon the Barbarian.’ I am definitely going to crush the opposition. There’s no doubt. I built a f***ing machine at Breitbart. And now I’m about to go back, knowing what I know, and we’re about to rev that machine up. And rev it up we will do.”

If a billionaire who is not beholden to corrupt government officials, lobbyists, media, and corporate interests can't alter the present course, then it's extremely likely no one can in the current environment. What any concerned citizen must do at this stage is VOTE OUT every Republican official that stands in the way of enacting the President's agenda.

The death of boomers will help accelerate the process of transitioning power away from this destructive generation. Boomers have maintained politicians in their roles for the duration of their entire lives (see McCain) by their sheer numbers, and subsequently obliterated our country through selfishness and greed, destroying it for the younger generations that have come after them waiting for a chance to pick up the pieces.

Short of that, there aren’t a lot of diplomatic choices left on the table that will save us from a spiral into short-lived socialism that will economically be the final nail in the country’s coffin before its inducted into some globalist nightmare.
