Trump Demotes Steve Bannon
Posted by Mary Catherine Dunphy (+1363) 6 months ago
At last, another decision President Trump made that I agree with. The last one was when Trump fired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Ret.) as National Security Advisor. Now it's Steve Bannon that is being demoted. The Federal Register is reporting that Trump is no longer allowing Bannon -- his favorite self-described Leninist (and Alt. Right) advisor to continue as a principal on the National Security Council. Hmmmmm. Hmmmm.

I'm thinking that given that what is being turned up in the investigations of Russian meddling into the U.S. presidential election that Trump may be making a preemptive move here. I heard Congressman Castro yesterday (04-04-17) say that based on the investigation so far, he thinks some people will be going to jail in the future. I took that to mean those involved with Russia during the campaign. Perhaps, even Steven Bannon. Time will tell.

Here's a Daily Kos article published November 16, 2016 entitled, "Everything you need to know about Steve Bannon, Breitbart and Russia."

In that article here's how Steve Bannon has described himself:

"Steve Bannon is a self-described Leninist. In an interview with The Daily Beast, Bannon proudly claimed, “I’m a Leninist.” “Lenin,” he answered, “wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment.” Bannon includes in that his desire to bring down the whole Washington establishment, both parties, and Western liberal, secular governments. Here are some news sources discussing his Leninist views:

Here's something else interesting: A top U.S. general says the U.S. has no defense against Russian missiles. (Even after the hundreds of millions of dollars spent by the Reagan administration on its much vaunted "Star Wars" program.)

Also, it appears that Bannon and Jared Kushner aren't getting along.

I understand Bannon has been put in charge of "HealthCare". What the procreate does Bannon know about Healthcare?

From the looks of him, he could use (or will soon need) some healthcare.
