Bannon's Revenge: Breitbart Threatens To "Rally Votes For Impeachment" If Trump Moves Left

Tyler Durden's picture

Last Friday Bannon boldly declared: "I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents... on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America." 

But, according to a new note from Vanity Fair, that "war" could end up ensnaring the President himself should he decide to succumb to what Bannon views as intense internal White House pressure, from the likes of Jared Kushner, Ivanka and Gary Cohn, among others, to move to the Left on key policy issues.

Quoting editor Matt Boyle, Vanity Fair reports that Breitbart views itself as the key reason that the Russia scandal hasn't gained traction on the right but that they are "prepared to help Paul Ryan rally votes for impeachment" should future Trump policies deviate too far to the Left.

“We’re in a loud bar celebrating the return of our captain!” Breitbart’s Washington editor Matt Boyle told me on Friday night. Breitbart’s defense of Trump has so far helped keep the Russia scandal from gaining traction on the right. But that could swiftly change if Trump, under the influence of Kushner and Cohn, deviates too far from the positions he ran on. If that happens, said one high-level Breitbart staffer, “We’re prepared to help Paul Ryan rally votes for impeachment.”


Of course, as media reports have speculated for months now, the real targets of Bannon's war are the "globalists" in the White House which, at least in Bannon's mind, include Ivanka, Jared, Gary Cohn and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, among others.

Bannon’s main targets are the West Wing’s coterie of New York Democrat “globalists”—Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner and former Goldman Sachs president Gary Cohn—as well as the “hawks,” comprised of National Security Adviser H.R McMaster and his deputy, Dina Powell. “He wants to beat their ideas into submission,” Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow told me. “Steve has a lot of things up his sleeve.”


The chaotic, war-torn West Wing of the past six months will be prologue, but the coming struggles will be as personal as they are ideological, waged not with leaks but with slashing Breitbart banners. On Sunday, Breitbart took renewed aim at McMaster, with a headline claiming he advocated “Quran Kissing.”

But the biggest target of all is squarely on the back of Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law who Bannon affectionately describes as a "dope" with "highly questionable political instincts."

But most of all, there’s a deep animosity between Bannon and Kushner, amplified by a lack of respect. Bannon finds Kushner’s political instincts highly questionable. “He said Jared is a dope,” one Bannon ally recalled.


The two clashed fiercely on personnel decisions and policy debates, both domestic and international, many of which Bannon lost.


But Bannon, who was the only West Wing advisor to publicly support the president’s response to the violence in Charlottesville, is especially galled at being scapegoated as an anti-Semite in its wake. “It’s one of the attacks he takes most personally because it’s not true,” a Breitbart staffer told me. Bannon’s allies lay out a more complicated backstory. Bannon, they say, lobbied Trump aggressively to move America’s embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, but was blocked by Kushner. And, according to three Bannon allies, Bannon pushed a tougher line against the Palestinians than Kushner did. In May, when Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas visited the White House, Bannon stayed home. “I’m not going to breathe the same air as that terrorist,” Bannon texted a friend.

Meanwhile, the next phase of Bannon's revenge has already started with last night's headline story:

If Trump moves too far left?


This left-right theater is beyond absurd.


Donald Trump is a Big Government Statist.

Statists want government to have a great deal of power over the economy and individual behavior. They frequently doubt whether economic liberty and individual freedom are practical options in today's world. Statists tend to distrust the free market, support high taxes and centralized planning of the economy, oppose diverse lifestyles, and question the importance of civil liberties.

Bannon needs to run against Trump the next go around.  Majority of us true blue supporters of the campaign Trump would move to Bannon.  A person who walks his talk.

Stop reading there.

I for one did not read the article. Although there are many that I speed read, saves time. I find usually the comments far more informative, and ALWAYS far more entertaining .. Sometimes there are gems, worthy of full consideration . so I read the article, but they are far and few in between ....

Bannon this, Bannon that, Trump TrumP Trump, Russian Collusion, Nork threats, Markets gonna go boom, Heroin epidemic, Robert E Lee, Dont stare at the sun! Russian collusion, commies, bold sho vicks, antifa, left right, left right backwards MARCH !

trump's win was the continuation of the fck you vote that reaches back to the ron paulists - they were the early arrivals

just because chump hasn't worked out, do not let that deter -- keep growing the fck you party.  the movement is growing, play the long game

the movement swamped all of the killary + machine - impressive from where we started

The "fck you" party is not strong enough.  It needs to morph into the "fuck off and die" party.

I believe that Bannon is not an antisemite, he's just anti Trump's semites (Cohn, Kushner, Mnuchin, Ross, Sekulow, Miller, Kasowitz, etc), a mix of wealth extractors and neocons.

Until he sends Ivanka and Jared Kushner Soros packing - nothing changes.  Ivanka is friends with Chelsea and Huma.  Jared is buddies with Soros and Bibi.

Put Baron in charge because he and Hemenia are still goys.

If that cartoon were drawn to scale, Bannon would be a harmless goldfish that the deep state ship doesn't even notice.

Soros rules the world right now.  His paid protestors have taken over US policy, while at the same time he turns europe into a muzzie ghetto.  Bannon's brietbart news has been at war all this time, and it's about as dangerous as a fart in the wind.

Trump better figure out how to shut down Soros money.  They need to get Sessions (I know, LOL) to file riot incitement charges.  Or anything the legal minds can dream up.  Or quietly declare him an enemy combatant and have the intelligence guys do their worst.

We could wipe him... like with a cloth.

"Trump better figure out how to shut down Soros money."

Trump has partaken, enjoyed Soros money in the past. Drank from the poisoned chalice so to speak. Nothing, and I mean nothing, is what it appears. Don't be too hard on him, there are lot's of fellow members in THAT club ..

I'm not in debt, but thanks for your concern, and I agree, the noose of debt-servitude is among the vilest creations ever foisted on mankind.

So youre out of debt and like the housing crash it doesnt matter. The taxpayer and the fiscally responsible, whether in debt or not, will bear the responsibility.

Your neighbors take out hundreds of thousands in loans they cant afford and you refrain. They buy iphones on credit while their last iphone is still financed. When most the country is under massive debt and caught up in the debt consumer game they will find a way to cancel or relieve the debt just like in the housing crash and you will pay for it either way.

Probably higher ev to participate by building an 800 fico racking up debt and not paying it. 

We do have king BK as commander in chief now. He can probably come up with some very creative financial alchemy. 


Unless of course you starve the IRS.

techpriest's picture

Being out of debt matters.

No debt = you are not obligated to work to pay for any loan.

No debt = more of your current income goes to you.

No debt = once you hit a certain relatively low threshold of wealth, you can put less energy into work you have to do, and can focus on what you want to do.

This is why there is so much hatred of wealth and the wealthy that is promoted. Wealthy people = potential competition, and if you never try to become wealthy they don't have to worry about you.

I enjoy working and have no debt. I just dont see the upside to being debt free when so many around me assume debt and default on it with little consequnce.  If I were to default on it I would be penalized how? By not being extended credit in the future? Credit that I dont intend to use anyway. So what is the downside I am missing here?

I feel like the sucker being responsible. The system rewards morons at the expense of those that sacrifice so I would like to know a better way to participate in the fun. Lets all load up on debt we cant afford and see what happens. 



Croesus's picture

@ overbet:

Your 1st paragraph sums up my hatred of the current social model well, with this sentence: "The taxpayer and the fiscally responsible, whether in debt or not, will bear the responsibility."

In a nutshell, as a "responsible adult" who understands "right and wrong", and concepts like "actions have consequences", I hate the fact that people like me are constantly forced to pay for the irresponsible actions of others.

To Wit:

- Political spendthrifts? Oh well, just raise taxes, or inflate the currency.

- Criminal behavior? We'll just let the taxpayers foot the bill to house, clothe, and feed them.

- Can't keep it in the pants? Taxpayers can pay for your 20 kids, since you can't.

- Banks failing? No way, they're "Too Big To Fail".

"Every fucking time I turn around, SOMEONE is sticking their hand in my cookie jar".

We have no say in this, and if anyone has a rightful place at the trough of victimhood (that's so popular these days), it's people in the same boat I'm in.

I can't wait for the bullets to start flying. Seriously. There are Hosts and there are Parasites.

When the bullets start flying, my only goal will be to take down as many Parasites as possible.

Jared is worse than a dope, he's a zionist.  And why are Hillary and Soros not in prison yet?  Why is Seth Rich's killer not caught?  Why is Pizzagate not being investigated?  What the fuck is going on?

If Trump betrays his base he's going to wish he never won.  They will turn on him with "Fire and Fure like the world has never seen before".

Yea, jared is a neocon zionist, and sounds like bannon is a ... NEO-neocon and a NEOzionist

If they think we voted for Trump becasue of Bannon's pro-Israel stance they are sorely mistaken. Seems like neither the left nor the right know how most Americans feel and why Trump won.
