Bannon's Dilemma




Steve Bannon was subpoenaed yesterday to appear before a House select committee to answer questions about the attempted January 6 overthrow of the election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. He refused to appear. Apparently, this impudent jackass believes that Donald Trump still has the power of the pardon. FUN FACT: He doesn't. Did Trump stupidly believe that he could issue pardons for crimes that would be committed post presidency? Given all that we know about the man, this is always a distinct possibility. Given all that we currently know about this bloviating jackass, anything is possible. Aren't American politics a riot?

Steve Bannon has privately (and publically) described himself as a "white supremacist". Really??? Take a good look at the photograph at the top of this page and compare it with one of, say, Lena Horne, Barack Obama, Van Jones or Eartha Kitt. White supremacist indeed. Truth be told, Bannon's claim to "white supremacy" is as ridiculous a claim as if I were to make it ( You should see me first thing in the morning....Honestly). 

Anyone refusing to reply a year ago to a congressional subpoena had the cloak of a Trump pardon hanging over his or her head. That is not the case any longer - way far from it. The brutal fact of the matter is that these craven assholes will be faced with months and years in the slammer. I would point them to the case of Susan McDougal, who did eighteen months in the can for her refusal to participate in Ken Starr's Whitewater scam. What went around is coming around....Food for thought, baby!

Steve Bannon (and everyone else who refuses to answer a congressional subpoena) needs to be thrown into federal prison as swiftly as possible. Remember that bit about "rule of law" and "checks and balances"? Yeah, so do I.  These bastards and bitches should not be allowed to get away with their assault upon our democracy. There's too much at stake. Way too much.

Is is as simple and as clear as this: Donald Trump needs to be thrown into federal prison for whatever is left of his sick and miserable life.

There, I've said it again,

SUGGESTED VIEWING:
This is Jacqueline Kennedy being interviewed by NBC's Sander Vanocur in March of 1961. On the night she passed away in May of 1994, I was walking past her apartment building on 5th Avenue in Manhattan when a reporter from CBS News Radio stuck a microphone in my face and asked me to comment on her death. "She was one classy broad", said I.



She certainly was.

Former Obama Defense Secretary Robert Gates: Biden’s Afghanistan Withdrawal Made Him Feel Sick

He’s not the only one..

George Bush's "Mission Accomplished" made him a liar and left us holding the bag.

Talk about sick. Oh...That would be Steve Bannon who is hip-deep in T**** conspiracy, campaign finance fraud, and about to be arrested.

Vern forgot the rest of what Gates had to say:

He (Gates) blames both former President Trump and President Biden for the chaotic pullout that resulted in panic and deaths, including 13 American service members killed by a suicide bomber as well as the deaths of Afghan civilians.

"Certainly the military considers withdrawal the most dangerous part of an operation. But they really had a lot of time to plan, beginning with the deal that President Trump cut-- with the Taliban… So that was in February of 2020," Gates tells Cooper.

He criticizes Trump for not making a plan then to remove Afghans who had worked for the U.S. He says President Biden should have begun evacuation when he said there would be a firm and complete pullout.

"If you start with the notion that we're pulling out entirely, I think you'd have to be pretty naïve not to assume things were going to go downhill once that withdrawal was complete," Gates says.

And back on topic: Bannon, like every other Trumpist, is a fascist.

Dave, Sybil ALWAYS leaves out the main points of the story. He then conveniently "forgets" to post any source.

Vern's only motive for being here is his hate and deluded notion of "owning the libs".

He can't comprehend the fact his bigotry always shines through for all to see.

Is it just me, or does Bannon look like trump without the spray tan and comb over?

Those infected with Covid 19 in the Red states continue to have a better chance of recovery. Than, those infected in the Blue states. As of 15 October 2021, the USA’s fatality rate (percentage of cases that died) is 1.6 percent. Which is the same as 1 October’s 1.6 percent. Bad news for Blue states, they are still the worst. Of the 25 states, plus DC, that voted blue in 2020, the average is 1.7 percent. The same as 1 October. Twelve of the 26 are over the national average of 1.6 percent. Four of the 26 are 2.0 percent or above. For the 25 Red states the average is 1.5 percent. Which is the same their 1.5 percent on 1 October. Only four of the Red states are over the national average of 1.6 percent. Only one of those three states were at 2.0 or over percent. Worst Blue States’ Fatality Rates: Massachusetts (2.3), New Jersey (2.3), New York (2.2), Connecticut (2.2), and Pennsylvania (2.0). Worse Red State’s Fatality Rate: Mississippi (2.0). Clearly, if one wishes to live, keep clear of Democrat run states. If, anyone states that the denser populations of Blue states are the reason for their higher fatality rates, I shall make jest of you as unable to interpret statistics. Such would be the cause of a higher number or percentage of cases, not of a percentage of those who caught the disease and died. Source: WHO

Vern's pulling crap from his ass again. What else is new?

The top ten include 5 each of red and blue states.

Mississippi is #1

The 10 states with lowest rates of Covid deaths are 7 blue and 3 red.

Eat that, Vern. You're a damn liar.

Dozens of tree-worshipping protestors, many of them obediently wearing their Fauci face diapers, capped off a five-day protest by storming a Department of Interior building in Washington, D.C., to protest President Pee-pants’s refusal to cancel oil pipeline contracts.

Once upon a time such behaviors could get you shot, solitary confinement, and congressional waterworks.

When I think of Mrs. Kennedy, I just feel sad. What happened to her was worse than a Greek tragedy. It's amazing she came out of that limousine alive. From her alcoholic father to her dead son and a couple of other family members murdered in between. People in the future might wonder why she never divorced JFK, but it was a different time and she had strict religious convictions.

Dave suffers from liberal depression. He has been banned from a blog for being a hate filled, lying, radical fascist liberal. Has been accused of same by fellow liberal, American Atheist here and else where.

WHO said what, Vern? WHO are you bullshitting, Vern? WHO thinks you have a shred of decency or honesty, Vern?

Vern's brain has been turned to mush by his Trumpist hate and ignorance.

The fact he would call me both “commie racist Dave” and a "fascist liberal" tells us he has nothing but an ignorant and putrid puddle of hatred sloshing between his ears.

WHO agrees with me.

In the 1960s and 70s, Marxist philosopher Herbert Marcuse theorized that it would be easier to stoke grievances among minority groups than among America’s working class. Stoking racial divisions to destabilize the United States was not an entirely novel idea. As former Communist Party USA member Manning Johnson described in Color, Communism and Common Sense (1958):

“Stirring up race and class conflict was the basis of all discussion of the Communist Party’s work in the South. Use of all racial, economic and social differences, no matter how small or insignificant, to start local fires of discontent, conflict, and revolt.” ....."use Negroes as the spearhead, or as expendables."

Marcuse saw revolutionary potential not just with blacks, but with immigrants, homosexuals, transgender people, women, and other so-called disaffected groups. Marcuse and the post-1960s radical left believed identity politics (and its tactical doctrine Critical Race Theory) was the chariot on which they would ride to a Marxist utopia in America.

Sybil PLAGIARIZING another article, who referred to another article, by someone completely nuts...

Police and climate activists clashed Thursday during protests at the Interior Department, with security personnel sustaining “multiple injuries” and one officer being taken to a hospital, agency spokeswoman Melissa Schwartz said.

Climate demonstrators were attempting to occupy the Interior Department, with dozens entering the Stewart Lee Udall Main Interior Building on C Street NW. Those who remained outside clashed with police as they tried to keep the one unlocked door open. At times, protesters attempted to push past the police line.

The protesters were here for People vs. Fossil Fuels, five days of demonstrations by a coalition of groups known as Build Back Fossil Free that has included Indigenous leaders from across the country. The coalition’s name is a nod to President Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda.

Oh, they were advocating for Biden’s climate agenda, were they? Does that mean Biden incited the insurrection? Perhaps an October 14 Commission should be established and Joe Biden’s supporters should be locked up without trial.

Biden's work to save our climate is not the same as Trump's attempt to overthrow the government.
