Angry Steve Bannon Blasts NFL And Mitch McConnell; Predicts "Day Of Reckoning" For Republicans

Tyler Durden's picture

Last night, after a fiery campaign appearance for Judge Roy Moore in Alabama, former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon took to Fox News to lash out at everyone from NFL players taking a knee at football games to the "spineless" Republican establishment.  Here's a recap of the more salient points:

“If people in this country take a knee and the national football players want to take a knee, they should take a knee at night, every night, and thank God in heaven Donald J. Trump is president of the United States."


“He has saved this country so much grief. He has done such a tremendous job with virtually no help."


"I stepped out to make sure that Mitch McConnell and the Republican establishment start to have a Republican back.  Mitch McConnell wouldn’t be majority leader if Donald Trump didn’t drag half a dozen senators across the goal line in November."


"So it's time for the Republican establishment to step up and have the back of President Trump."

Meanwhile, as Politico notes, Bannon's comments on Fox News were somewhat tame compared to the verbal lashing he levied upon McConnell and crew at Moore's campaign event in Alabama.

“For Mitch McConnell and Ward Baker and Karl Rove and Steven Law — all the instruments that tried to destroy Judge Moore and his family — your day of reckoning is coming,” Bannon said, referring to the Republican Senate leader and a trio of prominent GOP strategists backing incumbent Sen. Luther Strange. “But more important, for the donors who put up the [campaign] money and the corporatists that put up the money, your day of reckoning is coming, too.”


Bannon said mainstream Republicans behind Strange's campaign regard Alabama voters as “a pack of morons. They think you’re nothing but rubes. They have no interest at all in what you have to say, what you have to think or what you want to do. And tomorrow, you’re gonna get an opportunity to tell them what you think of the elites who run this country!”


“Mitch McConnell and his permanent political class is the most corrupt, incompetent group of individuals in this country!” Bannon said to loud applause.

Of course, if you believe the polls then it's looking increasingly likely that Bannon's candidate, Roy Moore, will score an easy victory in tonight's runoff election.

Absolutely right.  The GOP Congress has shown itself to be a Deep State, don't rock the boat bunch of Country Club Elites.

They won't get my dollars or support.

OK then, Pedophiles vs. Protestant Christians. Which side are you on?

Who downvoted this?

I had a convicted pedo priest as my teacher in high school....


The worst part is I do not think they 'retired' all these hideous demons.  They sure didn't jump on weeding them out of the priesthood. Castrate each and every one.

LOL.  Catholics aren't matter how much they want you to believe otherwise.

Coulter is an idiot.

She's right 90% of the time then WAY off the otehr 10%.   Bill Maher is one her close friends.  She wanted Chris Kripsy Kreme Christie to be president.   Very odd

I'd say Bannon and Sherrif David Clarke and throw David Horowitz in the mix somehow..that would fuck liberals and the media up good. Bannon, a black, and a Jew hmm what would the MSM do?

sparksmass's picture

Right, he ignored them all, like scrapping TPP and Paris Accord, stopping China from screwing us on trade, cracking down on illegal immigration and H1B abuse, appointing a conservative Supreme Court judge, creating jobs, putting America first, etc.  Oh wait....

It is positive that the term ”deep state” is now mainstream. It is not positive, that it is so misused/misunderstood. Deep state forces are per definition not visible and/or part of the “official institutions of power”. All actors on the political stage in US are pawns of the deep state. Yes, that includes Trump and his cabinet of swamp creatures. And yes, of course Congress is doing the bidding of its owners (the deep state).

The “deep state” is old money (the wealth accumulated doing the first round of Monopoly/capitalism – oil-, railroad-, banking-, real estate etc. = the money masters – the families controlling the shadow banking system and the central banks), new money (all controlled by old money/the money masters – Trump is in this category, as is all the Tech-companies), the MIC (again controlled by the money masters) and the FIRE-sector (again controlled by the money masters). So the deep state is the 0,01% owning the shit show = it is the capitalists (owners of capital/the original meaning of the term).

You need a few more decimelpoints over honcho.....
Try   %.00000001

60 Families in US out of 380 million +/-

World Cash Day's picture

Ah, not quite.

0.00000001% means you are talking about .03 people controlling everything!

Not even 10% of one person!

AAre you serious? That's nuts.

And yet you say 60 families, with 5-6 family members you're talking about 320 people.

That is actually .0001%

Essay: Anatomy of the Deep State

There is the visible government situated around the Mall in Washington, and then there is another, more shadowy, more indefinable government that is not explained in Civics 101 or observable to tourists at the White House or the Capitol. The former is traditional Washington partisan politics: the tip of the iceberg that a public watching C-SPAN sees daily and which is theoretically controllable via elections. The subsurface part of the iceberg I shall call the Deep State, which operates according to its own compass heading regardless of who is formally in power.

Who rules America?

The secret collaboration of the military, the intelligence and national security agencies, and gigantic corporations in the systematic and illegal surveillance of the American people reveals the true wielders of power in the United States. Telecommunications giants such as AT&T, Verizon and Sprint, and Internet companies such as Google, Microsoft, Facebook and Twitter, provide the military and the FBI and CIA with access to data on hundreds of millions of people that these state agencies have no legal right to possess.

Congress and both of the major political parties serve as rubber stamps for the confluence of the military, the intelligence apparatus and Wall Street that really runs the country. The so-called “Fourth Estate”—the mass media—functions shamelessly as an arm of this ruling troika.

The best thing that could happen to this country is a Democrat landslide in the midterms to tell the Republicans once and for all 'you're expendable'.  Especially when you don't do what you said you were going to do!!!!

A democratic landslide just means the same elite control the game and their policies of destroy the USA continues...

well as I see it the Demoncrats are destruction by chimps and muzzies, and the Repukes are destruction by Joo bankers....  pick your poison, it ends badly for whitey either way.

Be that as it may, history rhymes.

The Whig Party collapsed making way for the GOP in the 1850s. It looks like the GOP has shot itself in the foot (several times) recently. I doubt the GOP can be effective.


IMO, the GOP failed to repeal Obamacare. Major fail. The establishment GOP is indistinguishable from Democrats and cannot even support the Republican president in the White House. Major stupidity.

Fortunately for the GOP, the two-party system is a one-party (establishment) monopoly. The D-rats will want to keep a weak strawman alive for a punching bag.  Both parties pretend to represent the public as they wrangle schemes to draw money from the government's till.

Fuck you, unless you consider a hot civil war as "best thing".

Democrats have zero hesitation voting as a pack. First order of business - Pelosi, sponsored by Wacky Watters will start impeachment procedures against Trump.

gatorengineer's picture

I vote for hot civil war.... its the only way...  else the frog will continue be slowly boiled until it cant croak let alone fight. Bring it Bitchez.

I sure wish Republicans "had zero hesitation voting as a pack".  The GOP seems intent on pissing away their greatest opportunity of the past 50 years.

The best thing that could happen is to vote out the likes of McConnel, Ryan, Murkowski, McCain, Collins and company.

Hahaha you already got your Democrat landslide.  McConnell (D-KY), McCain (D-AZ), Murkowski (D-AK), Collins (D-ME), Heller (D-NV)... need I go on?  We have reached peak Democrat.  You need to go long crying towels.

THE problem is with the monetary system itself stupid fucks.

Roy Moore is big enough in Alabama that he could have gone around the gop. He could have started his own party in Alabama. It is too bad people will keep wasting resources and throwing good men into that cesspool.

And the only solution (which you dont seem to understand) is, we had to destroy the human race, in order to save it. Repetitive complaining at this point does no one any good, anymore.

LawsofPhysics's picture

I understand perfectly as that which cannot be sustained, won't be. Don't overthink this asshat, evolve or die. Been this way since the dawn of time. plenty of opportunity today, but nothing is without risk.

I have a better idea, why dont we computerize gvt corruption and then place a no default mechanism so nothing can change it, and do it because, .....thats the way its always been done. Dont you see bankrupting the gvt is the only way to resolve the tradgedy of gvt corruption or is it the blind leading the blind over there?

Dave's picture

That which is about to fall deserves to be pushed.

More correctly, its the legalised violence that backs it.

Recognise the real problem, not its symptoms.

The crypto fans are fighting the wrong war, with the wrong weapons.

LawsofPhysics's picture

Correct.  Power and control over real resources by force.  Yet, it's the FIAT system that holds it all together.  Those soldiers and "law" enforcment agents should demand to be paid with something real...

The military would collapse overnight.

you need to learn and appriciate the laws of nature more, so you can then see the corruption of gvt for what it truely is, being as blind as you are, and then defaulting to the real resources stick, is getting boring around here.
