Bannon admits Trump's cabinet nominees were selected to destroy their agencies..

Oh yea, and for the record, I think Bannon looks like he is an active and practicing alcoholic.
I've known quite a few, and he has that haggard look to him.

Bannon scares the shit outta me. This is all going to end very badly, one way or another. Sadcryface

I agree, they bringing a seriously fucked-up agenda to The White House.

RE: The Trump Impeachment Thread
I heard Bannon say: "you are not getting your country back without a fight".

This has been ringing in my ear ever since. Very scary. That dude wants to do away with our institutions and purposefully tear the whole country down so he can rebuild it as a dictatorship.

Someone please prove it isn't so.

There's no doubt he wants to do that. As of now the courts are obviously still working. Which doesn't mean that there's no all out assault on jurisdiction in the making. In Israel the rightwingers just cracked down on independent courts by installing ultra right and ultra religious judges. Might that something like that happens in the US too.

Yeah, that was chilling. Wondering what they're planning to do with all of us misfits?

Bannon wants to take America back from other Americans. What happened to our motto "E Pluribus Unum"? So yes, there is going to be a fight. We have the press, the facts, and the law largely on our side, plus a lot of angry activists. Angry

RE: The Trump Impeachment Thread
Quote:Atop Trump’s agenda, Bannon said, was the “deconstruction of the administrative state” — meaning a system of taxes, regulations and trade pacts that the president and his advisers believe stymie economic growth and infringe upon one’s sovereignty.
“If you look at these Cabinet nominees, they were selected for a reason, and that is deconstruction,” Bannon said. He posited that Trump’s announcement withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership was “one of the most pivotal moments in modern American history.”

Yep, destruction of the dept. of education and everything else. All the new people running our agencies are chosen because they want to dismantle them and have said so in the past.

WTF is going to happen?

And I'm one of them, goddamnit! I've never been politically active in my life but when trump was elected I began. I'm going to a town hall meeting tomorrow our senator is hosting and I'm going to mention this Bannon comment to him if I can. Our senator is Ron Wyden and he's fighting the trump shit too so I'll be preaching to the choir but this Bannon shit is terrible.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

They don't understand that the glacial pace of the bureaucratic behemoth means the implementation of any policy change will not happen during their term. Year or more to get approval from Congress, couple years to do an impact study, couple more to plan,and then at least a few more to implement. Trump's not used to things not happening as soon as he says but what he doesn't appreciate is the beast just can't move any faster no matter how hard it tries.

There is only one really serious philosophical question, and that is suicide. -Camus

So trump just held another speech - he took the "press is the enemy of the people" a step further by adding "and we're going to do something about it".

Yeah, they're prepping the ground for cracking down on Freedom of the press. I'm not entirely sure what they can do without outright violating the constitution, but as I said before. Suing journalists out of their livelihood, is an easy excercise.

The goal is probably something like the Russian media, only reporting in favor of the great leader.
