Update at the end of the article:

Or, Vice President Bannon?


The distinction with Steve Bannon is that he has a big mouth like Trump, but he has a lot more control over it than Donald Trump has over his own mouth.

Bannon also has a more grass roots heritage. His history is sterling as heroic and upper middle class savvy. He served seven years in the Navy as an officer and at the Pentagon in the Chief of Naval Operations office. He went on to work for Goldman Sachs, which should give some wee small comfort to the establishment. He then worked for the Earth Science Project with Biosphere 2, which should give comfort to Michael Moore and Al Gore. 

He then went on to became an executive producer in the Hollywood film and media industry; he produced 18 films between 1991 and 2016. The next step was to Breitbart where he lead the news agency to be virulently anti-establishment, particularly 'anti-' the permanent political class.

Bannon's personal path was exactly like Ronald Reagan's. He grew up and worked on the left until he left Hollywood. He then saw the light and swung to the far right, having had his epiphany by watching Jimmy Carter bungle and botch most of what he did.

This is a great choice for Donald Trump's voter base. He is the voice of the grumpy right who are fed up with the establishment Republicans and who virtually hate the Left. 

But, how would Bannon do campaigning? His rumpled look might be a plus, but the media will have a great time mocking and lampooning him. Perhaps that would be good. Like Trump, Bannon would be just as happy with bad press as none at all. If he was not getting enough coverage, he might show up to an interview in Bermuda shorts.

Bannon's military experience, and his lack of rich snob image, would be a plus after Trump. Donald Trump has proved to be a wimp in North Korea, and Bannon would very likely put the hammer to NK and Iran. Bannon has a short fuse, but so do Trump's supporters. The big question is, can Bannon be blackmailed or destroyed for his past with women and with Goldman Sachs? It would appear that he is clean, but time will tell.

What we could also see is Bannon as Vice President, but he would not be very happy in second place with nearly no voice in policy and the general battle of politics. I am tempted to call a long shot at Bannon running for President, especially if Trump flames out for some reason. If Bannon is clean after working for Trump's White House, which may not be so, then Bannon has a good chance of courting the alt-right again. His abrasive manner would stand him in good stead in debates, and the masses would rally to a former Navy officer.

The media would mock at his Navy career which was short. He was only a Lieutenant, but than again, Harry Truman was only a Captain, and America's Veterans loved him. The point is, very few candidates in recent years have military experience, and the last President who did was George W. Bush, and before him, Jimmy Carter. Bannon had the same rank as George W Bush. 

Bannon's most virulent enemies would be Jeb Bush and the left wing media. They will have a hay day with his past statements and associations. These statements go as far as to say that a Nazi film maker is his ideal for driving the GOP. In this regard, Bannon is a bit frightening.

Bannon is a Radical Traditionalist, and he has connections with the Right Wing radicals of the Vatican, having spoken at their functions at the Vatican. This means he has no use for Pope Francis, and he hates the Jesuits. He sees Islam as a form of fascism which must be, minimum, controlled, and possibly destroyed. He is an Irish Catholic from a family that supported John Kennedy, and he is philosophically a Kennedy clone. By that, I mean that Kennedy would be a Far Right Republican if he returned today, for John Kennedy had no use or trust in the establishment who finally killed him. This all boils down to this..... the Deep State who wet their pants over Trump's ascendancy would crap their drawers and go into a catatonic fit over Bannon. Bannon would have to hire Black Water to stay alive. MORE ON THIS

Bannon is one of the most potent dressers in Washington. How he dresses is highly symbolic, and he loves to look like the rumpled Harvard intellectual who got fired for attending a radical right wing meeting. He is a Harvard graduate. He is famous for wearing two button down shirts with color combinations that fit the meeting or speech being given. Bannon is a true maverick by the Texas definition. He has never been branded. MORE ON THIS

All of the above means that Bannon would have some trouble courting the Evangelical right. He would have to let Kenneth Copeland and the "spirit filled" mob lay hands on him like they did with Trump and lift him to godhead. This would help the right to forget the Vatican connection. Bannon could also build a Malachi Martin persona as a voice against the filthy side of the Roman Catholic Church and the Vatican.

His best friends would be all the extreme right good old boys and war Veterans of America. That worked for Trump, and it might work for Bannon if he could nurse the masses from Trump into his mob. Bannon would, like Trump, find it hard to enlist big guns who would back him. He is even less connected with the establishment than Trump was.

Bannon would also be able to capitalize on the part of the population of America who have been destroyed by socialist enclaves like New York City, Chicago, and California. By the time he appears on the scene, guns will be everywhere as people arm themselves against illegals immigrants who rape and murder.

Watch for the Democrats to find some starlet from Bannon's Hollywood days who claims Bannon groped her. This is the MO of the Democratic Party today. Government by bribery. By 2020 Trump's voter base will be totally grossed out by all the dollies in the pay of Hillary, and they will not believe any story about Bannon and the dames.

Best of all, Bannon looks rumpled and common, like your mouthy uncle who tells racy jokes and makes sense about America and history. If enough Democrats can be iced politically, and if Bannon becomes well known to have helped drain the swamp, he has a good chance to be the next President.

I see Steve Bannon as the Andrew Jackson of the present age- aggressive, smart, and a bad attitude toward the establishment.

Bannon also is the best bet to beat Jared Kushner. Jared clearly has a mind set to climb into the White House, what with his peace talks with Israel and the Palestinians. If Jared happens to cut the deal that finally brings alleged peace in the Middle East, no one will be able to beat him if he runs in 2020. Kushner is registered to vote as having no political party. His past career is just as shabby as Barak Obama's was, but he is a pretty boy.

Steve Bannon would still be a better deal than Jared.

Having said that, I believe Steve Bannon would be very tempted to invoke the Emergency Powers Act and take over part or all of the USA during a crisis. He believes in those who have power using it for the good of the masses. THAT would frighten me. But again, all the alternatives are members and shills of the Deep State and the Establishment who rule America for the Gold, the Girls, and the Glory. I would rather gamble with Bannon. He would see things as black and white morally, and that is long gone from American government.

UPDATE January 3, 2018

What a bomb Steve Bannon dropped in his book Fire and Fury!

Some who read the book will say, "Et u Brute?" But, if you read all of the above commentary, you will see what Bannon is doing. If he wants to pick up the gauntlet, he has to help Trump resign. This book will do that. Trump needs to get clear of the FBI, while counting on a pardon from VP Pence in the event of an impeachment or criminal investigation. 

That will leave the Republican Party with a weak man in Pence for 2020. Like Gerald Ford who pardoned Richard Nixon, pardoning Trump would mean being passed over as the nominee.

This would leave Bannon as the leading contender. If he is not sucked into the funnel cloud gathering all of Trump's friends and family into the storm, Bannon could be seen as the man who belled the cat. Even some Liberal media could be forced to credit him with side lining Trump, thus fulfilling their wishes.

So, Bannon is doing what Vladimir Putin did with Yeltsin in Russia when Yeltsin was flaming out. Can Bannon move up and into first place, and will Trump's supporters see Bannon as doing them a service? 

Fox news may be the key in all of this. If they conclude that Trump is doomed, Fox will start talking about Bannon as a victim of the Trump White House goon squad and Kushner. They will then move on to pass off Bannon as the only honest team member Trump had, and they will imply that Trump made a big mistake in dumping Bannon. This could all be true, and the supporters could easily move in behind Bannon.

It would help a lot of Rush Limbaugh and Alex Jones decided that Bannon was the Great White Hope of the Republican Party. Bannon is also mad enough to start a new party and run as an independent. That usually fails, but who thought Trump could pull off his coup? Anything can happen next.


The response of President Trump to Steve Bannon was predictable. Bannon took a swing at Trump, and Trump came back hitting hard. The end of this may come when Bannon runs out of evidence for his claims in his book.

Steve Bannon had to know Trump would slam him violently. So, Bannon either has a second punch ready, or he is indeed insane as Trump claims.

In that case, Bannon will be a puddle of scum soon if he cannot enter the second round swinging. I have to assume that Bannon has something up his sleeve, and it could be very messy soon. What may be coming is some really ugly personal problem Trump has hidden from the world. Bannon is a master at digging for dirt. 

I now feel like Bannon cannot win whatever he does. If he manages to destroy Trump, Trump's supporters will turn in hate on Bannon. The only way Bannon can come out looking good will be to shut up and say nothing more. Bannon cannot possibly do that. He wants blood, and he will keep going for it.

It was predicted that Bannon has a long history of getting revenge on his adversaries. It was predicted also that Bannon would go after Trump eventually. For now, it looks like Bannon made a big mistake. The only way he can keep the discussion under his control is to prove his contentions about the meeting of Trump and the Russians. 

Problem: Bannon was not there. I now believe I wasted a lot of time putting this story all together from the beginning. I now think Bannon is a jerk who thought he could write a book that would make news. The problem is, it may soon look like Fake News, and Bannon may soon be on CNN joining the dogs who bark and rage at Trump. Either that, or he may simply eject back into his editor's big office chair and whimper. Bannon may soon have no friends to console him unless he goes looking for Maxine Waters.

I apologize for wasting you time. 

Indeed, Trump may actually be even better off now with regard to the Russian connection. The media may actually back away from Bannon and consider dropping the Russian story. They will really look bad taking up with Bannon as their poster boy, Bannon who hates them with a passion. Bannon may have done more for Trump in attacking him than he ever did advising him.


This will be my last comment on Steve Bannon for President. I have to admit that I was duped by Bannon into thiking he had something to offer. I never have liked to look at him. He looks like a skid row bum, but so have some other great men.

But, the truth about Bannon is ugly and frightening. This man is a loser who came up into the presence of greatness, and he was on his way to make himself a carbon copy of Adolph Hitler. I have yet to see one fan of Bannon who matters.

Here is Ben Shapiro on Steve Bannon. Ben is very savvy and seems to have a handle on the history of Steve Bannon.

It would appear that Steve Bannon has, in old wartime terms, shot his wad. This happened when the cannoneer in old time warfare would load the powder charge, load the wadding, and forget to load the cannon ball. He would fire the cannon, and all that would happen is a load of wadding would settle over the enemy lines.

The author of Fire and Fury, Michael Wolf, now says that he cannot be sure about many of the "facts" included in the book. This is now being seen as a total admission that the book is "Fake News" by a traitor who once claimed to be a rabid supporter of Donald Trump. The book was indeed cannon wadding.

When the wadding settles, Bannon will indeed to a sad case of a loser who threw away anything he had left to offer the world. I predict that Steve Bannon will do one more thing to make himself famous..... kill himself. Either that, or he will end up hanging out with losers at Liberal universities and press corp events and being delivered back to his home by friends dead drunk. 

We can not be too thankful that Donald Trump knew when to unload Bannon. Bannon might have burned down the Reichstag Building had he been left in the White House. One must wonder if Bannon got a check from the Clinton Foundation or George Soros for $10,000,000 dollars.

Also, before we close the door on this, Breitbart News must now be considered a rubbish source unless the owner fires Bannon.

Because Steve Bannon has made fools of many of us Americans, I have the distinct pleasure in awarding him the first Dead Skunk Award for 2018:
