    It's a hopeless situation...

    Ultimate political goal
    To destroy the modern Republican party. He wants it transformed into a nationalist-economic populist party like Europe’s right-wing movements. Bannon was raised in a Democratic household, became a Republican, and eventually turned on mainstream politicians in general.
    He told the Vatican event: “I could see this when I worked at Goldman Sachs — people in New York that feel closer to people in London and in Berlin than they do to people in Kansas and in Colorado, and they have more of this elite mentality that they’re going to dictate to everybody how the world’s going to be run. . . . The Tea party in the United States’ biggest fight is with the Republican establishment, which is really a collection of crony capitalists . . . And, quite frankly, we’re winning many, many victories.”

    Here is the danger of Bannon and his radical thought process. I'm loathe to create "Hitler" comparisons, but there are very real comparisons that are appropriate that have nothing to do with the Holocaust or fascism itself. When a person or gov't believes that a war is inevitable, they stop trying to de-escalate a war and begin preparing for the war. And eventually they do something to precipitate the war. Bannon believes a reckoning is coming. There is a political and cultural re-orientation happening here and around the world. It's a common thought among the radical right that has grown ever since Ruby Ridge and Waco. This is a war against leftist elitists, Chinese, the Muslims, globalists. This war is coming and we must prepared and then we have to take the fight to them.

    This is exactly the mindset that Hitler brought to Germany in the 1930s. The Soviets were the enemy, the Untermensch. Hitler had no interest in avoiding the war, he wanted to prepare and then take the war to the Soviets and Communism. The result, obviously, was that 15 years later the Soviets were camped in Berlin. The same mindset permeated the Austro-Hungrarians and in Paris in 1914. When you stop avoiding and negotiating and begin preparing, that's when the risk rises immensely.

    This is what really worries me about Bannon's influence in the Oval Office.

    I think we have to learn from history and not ignore the similarities here. There *are* very real comparisons and it's important to call them out. After all, most people living now weren't here for WWII...and many don't really study history so they don't know. It's important to talk about it so people will know.

    And I think the public mocking the Bannon influence is really good. Trump is so thin skinned that cartoons like the one you posted might just be effective. Perhaps they will cause a rift and force the exile of Bannon. We can only hope.

    I love this. And if he's calling all of his own shots as he says he is, why did Prebus have to create a 10 point checklist for executive orders to make sure Trump was properly briefed earlier in the process so he wouldn't be surprised by things like giving Bannon a seat on the National Security Council?

    I have reposted this cartoon in a couple of places now. I think it is right on point.

    A little dramatic. Horrifying?

    And speaking to the cartoon there would be outrage on here from many if it was Monica Lewinsky with Hillary Clinton depicted instead and the word boy substituted with girl.

    I looked for your post but couldn't remember who posted the link....and you'd think he'd un-executive order his order, wouldn't you?

    Sorry, I meant I have posted this in a couple of other places (other than this site). I agree that if Trump was so troubled by what his executive order actually did he certainly has every opportunity to rescind it.

    He is in a pickle because if he rescinds it, it will be proof that he is a puppet with tiny hands.

    Right.. he can't rescind the order since it would be admitting either defeat on the issue or that it wasn't his decision. Neither is acceptable. He'll play this out but hopefully the whole team learned a swift but painful lesson.

    The circumstances are not even remotely comparable. As someone who voted for Bill Clinton and knew dozens if not hundreds of Clinton supporters, I can tell you that none of us were pleased with his affair.

    Spicer stated Trump has the authority to remove Bannon if he chooses to do so. Seems like the writing is on the wall. New guy must be trying to axe him.
