Prepping for Armageddon — What Could Be Worse — Um ... Trump-in-Charge

Key Question Stephen Bannon Holds the Key To

Nope, Not April Fool’s Day Joke, Either
(Real Possibility)

Pretty scary headlines for next April, right … possible, too. So, are you still not worried? Well, maybe tomorrow, right? In the meantime, get ready for another big scare and more plans from Stephen “Grigori Rasputin” Bannon who has both ears of Donald J. Trump, or will have very soon as he becomes the 45th President of the Untied Stated and the CINC... Bannon’s latest right after this short personal introduction:

I strongly believe that anything about our great nation and people with all the warts and moles and hang-ups... that it will all change for the worse commencing Jan 20, 2017 at Noon or shortly thereafter...

At that hour on that day, tons of key people will be in place with a mandate and instructions to tear down and repair everything the GOP, Conservatives and TEA nuts, most right-wingers all across Talk Radio and La-la land, and conspiracy nuts from the 4-corners hate about things that others cherish and like that they do not and then try to give us, what pray tell?

Crying wolf you say? Hardly ... just an honest assessment of those jockeying for power and and half the country saying: “Do, it, do – lock 'em all up if they disagree with us... this is America, and we can be hateful and spiteful and ugly and nasty as anyone in history... just watch us, and it is our right to be that way.”

All I would add is Holy crap…!!!

Now the main thrust of the man at the center: Stephen Bannon, hatchet or henchman for the CINC. He has been under relentless fire from critics on the left since he was named chief strategist and senior counselor to President-elect Donald Trump.

Before joining Trump's campaign as his CEO, Bannon was the executive director of Breitbart News, an outlet he described in July as a “platform of the alt-right” (“Alternative to the Rightwing” – more right than right).  His selection as one of Trump's top advisers prompted harsh rebukes from groups such as the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center, as well as top Democrats, who called Bannon an unacceptable choice.

But in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Bannon seems unbothered by the response to his selection. “Darkness is good. Dick “Dark” Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That's power. It only helps us when they get it wrong. They're blind to who we are and what we're doing,” he told the reporter. Bannon then noted that many people had completely missed the driving forces that ultimately propelled Trump to victory, saying:

The media bubble is the ultimate symbol of what's wrong with this country. It's just a circle of people talking to themselves who have no [f**king] idea what's going on. ... It's a closed circle of information from which Hillary Clinton got all her information – and her confidence. That was our opening. They got it more wrong than anybody. Rupert Murdoch is a globalist and never understood Trump. To him, Trump is a radical. Now they'll go centrist and build the network around Megyn Kelly.” 

Now, Bannon predicts Trump will ride his coalition of traditional Republicans and white working-class former Democrats to a permanent electoral powerhouse – perhaps without the small government conservatives who had steered the party for the past eight years, adding:

Like Andrew Jackson's populism, we're going to build an entirely new political movement. It's everything related to jobs. The conservatives are going to go crazy. I'm the guy pushing a trillion-dollar infrastructure plan. With negative interest rates throughout the world, it's the greatest opportunity to rebuild everything. Shipyards, iron works, get them all jacked up. We're just going to throw it up against the wall and see if it sticks. It will be as exciting as the 1930's, greater than the Reagan revolution – conservatives, plus populists, in an economic nationalist movement.”

He summarized this way:If we deliver we'll get 60 percent of the white vote, and 40 percent of the black and Hispanic vote and we'll govern for 50 years. That's what the Democrats missed, they were talking to these people with companies with a $9 billion market cap employing nine people. It's not reality. They lost sight of what the world is about.” Then despite Breitbart News' embrace of the so-called “Alt-Right,” a loosely organized movement associated with white nationalism that developed in response to mainstream conservatism, Bannon pushed back against aspersions on his own character, saying:

 “I'm not a white nationalist, I'm a nationalist. I'm an economic nationalist. The globalists gutted the American working class and created a middle class in Asia. The issue now is about Americans looking to not get [f**ked] over.”

So, let’s change the Trump slogan from “Make America Great Again” to “[Bye] American Pie” or just simply: “Sayonara, or Adios, Adieu, Addio, Adeus, Arrivederci, Ciao, Auf Wiedersehen, Au Revoir, Bon Voyage, Shalom, Totsiens, Vale, or even in Chinese Zaijian, or Korean Annyong.  It's been nice to know you, America...”

It seems that Bannon's philosophy, in tune with Trump's is to be as outrageous as possible, hear it, then ignore it and the heat by adding something far hotter the next time. If people don't like it, well f**k 'em all... next question.

Thanks for stopping by… come again and I’m sure you will stay tuned… we are now headed for serious and troubling times and truly in uncharted waters.
