As Bannon Campaigns for a Pedophile, His Hand-Picked Candidates Stay Loyal

Tonight, former Trump senior advisor turned alt-right crusader Steve Bannon will campaign in Alabama for disgraced Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused of preying on at least eight teenage girls when he was in his thirties. Bannon has stood by Moore following the allegations that Moore pursued teenage girls in the 1980s, including sexually assaulting a 14 -year-old girl.

But when he’s not campaigning for a suspected child molester, Steve Bannon has been endorsing and fundraising for Senate candidates across the country. And as of this moment, these candidates continue to stand by Steve Bannon — touting his endorsement and collecting money from his donor network — as he campaigns for a child molester. They include:

Marsha Blackburn, Tennessee
Ted Cruz, Texas
Josh Hawley, Missouri
Patrick Morrisey, West Virginia
Kevin Nicholson, Wisconsin
Matt Rosendale, Montana
Danny Tarkanian, Nevada
Kelly Ward, Arizona

“Steve Bannon apparently thinks a serial sexual molester who preys on underage girls is fit for the […]

Bannon Never Should Have Been on the NSC, Now Fire The White Supremacist

American Bridge President Jessica Mackler released the following statement after Steve Bannon, a renowned white supremacist, was removed from the National Security Council:

“Steve Bannon shouldn’t have been on the National Security Council in the first place and he still doesn’t belong anywhere near the White House.  Donald Trump should fire the white supremacist.”

Reality Check: Bannon is Heavily Involved with Drafting Executive Orders and Influencing Trump

Yesterday on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Donald Trump’s Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller falsely claimed that Steve Bannon has “no role whatsoever in drafting executive orders.”

But Miller’s claim could not be further from the truth – in fact Bannon is intimately involved in the drafting of executive orders as evidenced here, here and here.

And also in the photos below because we all know how much Trump likes “lots of graphics and maps,” we thought this would make it easier.

“Great Pick!” — David Duke

Republicans who are praising the racist misfits that Donald Trump is picking for his Cabinet are in good company. Former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke thinks that Steve Bannon and Michael Flynn in the White House and Jeff Sessions down the street as Attorney General are all “Great!”

Why does a racist white supremacist think Donald Trump is surrounding himself with the right men?

Jeff Sessions, Attorney General: Said “Be careful what you say to white folks” to an African American lawyer. (And much more.)

Michael Flynn, National Security Advisor: Islam is a “cancer” and a “political ideology,” not a religion.

Steve Bannon, chief strategist: Jewish kids are “whiny brats.”

Mike Pompeo, CIA director: Said Muslim leaders were “complicit” in Boston Marathon bombings.

Trump is stacking his administration with like-minded white nationalists and all the wrong people are […]

GOP Civil War Moves To The West Wing

With the selection of Reince Priebus as White House chief of staff and Breitbart chairman Steve Bannon as his chief strategist and senior counselor, Donald Trump has invited the burgeoning GOP civil war into the West Wing.

With consummate DC-insider Reince Priebus at the helm, Trump is unlikely to achieve any legislative victories as long as Stephen Bannon–a man that has mercilessly targeted Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, and Ben Sasse and “wants to destroy the state“–is involved. Trump’s call for “GOP unity” has already been portrayed as a circular firing squad between Bannon, Priebus, and congressional leadership.

Yesterday, Bannon’s Breitbart printed an article amplifying radio host Michael Savage’s attacks on Priebus as “the enemy within.” With Breitbart as his mouthpiece, Bannon is waging war on Priebus before the White House drapes are even measured.

This should come as no surprise given Breitbart’s longstanding and aggressive […]
