How Bannon fights for Trump agenda–even when it means fighting Trump



The executive chairman of Breitbart News is to reshape the Republican Party by primary challenging establishment politicians in the 2018 political cycle, especially senators, according to a report in the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

All GOP incumbents are vulnerable, except for Texas’ Sen. Ted Cruz, said Stephen K. Bannon, who took a leave of absence from Breitbart from August 2016 to August 2017, first as the CEO of candidate Donald J. Trump’s campaign and then as the president’s chief White House strategist.

Bannon’s goal is the replace Senate Majority Leader A. Mitchell “Mitch” McConnell (R.-Ky.), who he said leads the most corrupt and incompetent group of individuals in this country.

The Daily Mail report was confirmed by a source familiar with Bannon’s private meetings with conservatives around Washington.

“They are scared,” Bannon is telling conservatives, about McConnell and other members of the establishment. “When they can see what can be done with small contributions from average Americans, they are very worried about what we can do with less and we are going to primary all of them.”

Fresh off his contributing to the victory of Judge Roy Moore in the Alabama GOP primary over Sen. Luther Strange, Bannon is adding more names to his list of targets.

Moore’s victory signaled a new era in modern Republican history.

In the Moore v. Strange contest, the president pulled out all the stops, sending his own advisors to help the incumbent, along with Trump holding one rally and Vice President Michael R. Pence holding another.

Never before has a president’s most senior aide left the White House and one month later campaigned against that president’s endorsed candidate—and won.

When Bannon took on the establishment in the Alabama race, he was on the other side of the National Rifle Association and McConnell, who raised more than $8 million for the Strange effort.

In his private meetings, the source told BLP Bannon is reaching out to groups typically neglected by the party regulars, like minority conservatives, like the Black Americans for a Better Future.

At his closed meeting with the BAFABF they should have confidence in America and Americans, the source said.

“Foreign workers are not smarter than Americans,” he said. “The pursuit of wealth and the bottom line is not the only thing we have to worry about, with economics, we also have to think of how to run a civil society.”

Another one of Bannon’s topics was a discussion of the white paper, “Black Entrepreneurs Key to Economic Improvements 2017,” which was written by Raynard Jackson, the leader of Black Small Business Leaders.

Jackson told BLP he has known Bannon for many years.

“Steve has been instrumental in helping me get this group started,” he said. “Steve is serious about replacing the people who are preventing our economic freedom.”

The former chief strategist is also inviting insurgent candidates to meet with him at the “Breitbart Embassy,” the well-appointed Capitol Hill townhouse that is Breitbart’s east coast hub.

Before the runoff with Strange, Bannon hosted Moore and his wife at the Embassy. Another high-profile outsider to visit was Corey Stewart, who is running for the 2018 GOP nomination for Senate.

Stewart told BLP the two men discussed strategy and how best to energize the voters, who voted for the president in 2016.

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District

It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”



Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.

The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.

Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”

“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”

This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
