Bannon's interview
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/the-top-tak...rlie-rose/


Quote:"The Republican establishment is trying to nullify the 2016 election. That's a brutal fact we have to face," Bannon told Rose.
The former chief of staff cited Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, claiming that "they do not want Donald Trump's populist, economic nationalist agenda to be implemented."
"They're gonna be held accountable if they do not support the president of the United States. Right now there's no accountability," he later added.

Hm. I wonder if he ever defined what "accountability" looks like to him.

Somehow I think it has to do with McConnell and Ryan disappearing in the night.

How does he plan to hold them accountable? What's the game plan he hatched with/for trump?

Congress has no obligation to support the president. They are supposed to support their voters.

By spending media attention and money at primary challengers to them.

It worked to take out Eric Canton when he was a lead head in Congress these tea party nationalist right wingers didn't like.

That's just the alternative facts version of what's happening. What's really happening is that Trump made it sound like everything would be easily accomplished by him, but SURPRISE it isn't, so they have to blame someone besides him for his incompetence and lying.

"I alone can fuck it up." That's what he should have said.

Nothing that's occurred since the inauguration so clearly reveals the absolute dysfunctionality of both Trump and the Republican Party as this interview with an individual who has just been - though the fact obviously has to register inside his head - cashiered from his job as White House "strategist". Men and women who continue to plot and conspire in this fashion even after being fired suffer from an egregious form of megalomania. Often, such people are confined to mental institutes or subjected to anti-stalking restrictions by the courts.

Saturday Night Live's scriptwriters were, it turns out, correct. During the campaign and for months after the inauguration, Bannon obviously regarded himself as the real president, with Donnie as a sort of dimwitted gimp and close on three hundred Republican legislators as robots and yes-men, with no more power than the hundreds of idiotic stooges in China's National People's Congress.

Bannon now sees himself as the potential organiser and commandant of some forthcoming insurgency that will overthrow 'the establishment'. Will we one day see some bizarre American equivalent to the Munich Beer Hall Putsch of 1923? Despite being padded cell material, Bannon is convinced that he and Breitbart are soon going to have to save the nation. That it took months to dislodge this lunatic from his perch in the White House says everything one needs to know about Trump and the GOP.

Wow.

He made all his money off Seinfeld syndication.
Before that he was with ..... drumroll......Goldman Sacks.

Quote:House strategist, many articles highlighted an extraordinary fact about his Hollywood career: that he had negotiated a profit participation in “Seinfeld” in 1993, two years before the show went into syndication. Forbes reported that, if Bannon had a one-per-cent share in the profits, “he would have made about $32.6 million since 1998,” and went on to say that “Bannon’s steady ‘Seinfeld’ income” was supporting his career as a conservative propagandist.

The Trump spectacle is amazing on so many levels.
His latest move of bending to democratic will highlights this.
It may be that the Dems will soon be in the position of deciding whether they want to impeach Trump, along with the republican leadership and make Pence the president.
A move that the Republican leadership would love.
Or keep a compliant Trump as president and ride out the rest of the term.
Him showing that he can and will play ball just makes the whole mess a lot more interesting.
They will have demands of course in exchange. But it does certainly stir the pot.
One thing I've become convinced of is that as dim as Trump is in a lot of conventional ways he is brilliant in certain other ways.
Make no mistake about that.

Bannon is Cain, cast into the land of Nod. We will hear his lamentations for a time but they are largely meaningless.
