Steve Bannon believes that a necessary part of ‘draining the swamp' includes denying GOP establishment candidates from taking office.
Every political party consists of diehards and turncoats who pretend to be in favor while secretly advocating the opposite party's cause. In order to demolish the hold Obama and the Democratic Party have over politicians still in office, a type of restructuring is necessary.
Currently President Trump is supporting Luther Strange from Alabama for the GOP establishment pick regarding the open Senate seat, but breitbart's Steve Bannon, a major supporter of President Trump, believes this is the wrong decision and therefore spent time in Alabama advocating for Judge Ray Moore instead.
Over in one part of Alabama on Monday night, Vice President Mike Pence was rallying the crowds to do the bidding of President Trump and vote on Tuesday for the establishment pick, Luther Strange.
Over in Fairhope, Alabama – in a barn, no less – Steve Bannon was whipping up the righteous anger at everything Strange, his benefactor, Mitch McConnell, and the so-called establishment GOP stand for, in support of Judge Roy Moore.
For 20 minutes, Bannon raged.
“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.”
To Bannon, ousting the establishment favorites is key to breaking the “globalist” hold on our government. Oddly enough, he doesn’t go after Democrats with nearly the same fervor. With what we know, you’d think he’d be at least equally zeroed in on them, but I guess Republicans are easier. The fact that Trump has now started edging back to the left, embracing the policies of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi probably has nothing to do with it.
Perhaps sensitive to the perception that he was rebuking the president, the former White House chief strategist insisted that it was Moore, not Strange, would do the most to back the Trump agenda. “We did not come here to defy Donald Trump, we came here to praise and honor him,” he said.
President Trump will only be a successful President if the politicians working against him are removed from their place of power. Period.
