"Bannon Vision" Steve Bannon, CEO Breitbart News
The Prophet of Economic Nationalism
& the War Inside the Republican Party
I'm an Economic Nationalist, Not
"I am an economic nationalist. I am an America guy. I have admired nationalist movements throughout the world. Have said repeatedly that strong nations make great neighbors. I have also said repeatedly that the ethno nationalist movement, prominent in Europe, will change over time. I've never been a supporter of ethno-nationalism."
"The black working and middle class and the Hispanic working and middle class, just like whites, have been severely hurt by the policies of globalization."
"I was the one who said we are going to Flint, Michigan, we are going to black churches in Cleveland, because the thrust of this movement is going to bring capitalism to the inner cities."
The Republican Establishment is Trying
To Nullify the 2016 Election
“The Republican establishment is trying to nullify the 2016 election. That's a brutal fact we have to face."
“I think Mitch McConnell, and to a degree, Paul Ryan. They do not want Donald Trump's populist, economic nationalist agenda to be implemented. “It's obvious as night follows day is what they're trying to do.”
McConnell, Bannon recalled, told Trump that “I don't want to hear anymore of this 'drain the swamp' talk,” a reference to the president’s anti-corruption catchphrase on the campaign trail. “McConnell was, Day One, did not want to go there. Wanted us to back off,”
The three basic “touchstones” of Trump’s movement: 1) stop mass immigration and cut back dramatically on legal immigration; 2) bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States; 3) get us out of these pointless foreign wars.
On the Alt Right
Our definition of the Alt Right is young people who are anti-globalist, very nationalist, terribly anti-establishment.
Rasputin, The Great Manipulator, The Grey Imminence at the Right Hand of Trump. Steve Bannon has been called many things by his detractors from the left to the right of the political spectrum. After being forced off the National Security Council in April, and amid intense pressure to be dismissed as a sacrificial lamb following the violent Alt White altercation in Charlottesville, Bannon resigned as Special Counselor to the President on August 18.
It should come as little comfort to Democrats and the Republican establishment that Bannon has been released back into the wilds of Breitbart. He's not throwing Tribal Leader Trump under the bus, yet. In a September interview with Charlie Rose, Bannon served a burn notice to House Speaker Ryan, Senate Majority Leader McConnell, and any Republican not toeing the line of the "Trump Agenda."
Steve Bannon is the most dangerous conservative Alt-White figure in America; not because he has broad influence on the right, the Breitbart website with millions of followers and supporters with deep pockets. Steve Bannon's has a long term vision and strategy to convert the GOP into a white nativists party, and most importantly, he has a feel for the pulse of disaffected White America. We are printing some excepts of Steve Bannon's recent comments highlighting the stars illuminating the constellation of his Economic Nationalists agenda.
On Economic Nationalism
“Economic nationalism is what this country was built on. The American system—we look after our own. We look after our citizen, we look after our manufacturing base. And guess what? This country's going to be greater, more united, more powerful than its ever been. That's not astrophysics,. And by the way, that's every nationality, every race, every religion, every gender preference. As long as you're an American citizen, you're part of this populists economic nationalists movement.
Building a Populist Economic Nationalist Movement in America
“It is basically the voice of the people of this country saying that there is a corrupt permanent political class in Washington, DC, inextricably linked to the financiers on wall Street and the high-tech community in Silicon Valley and in Hollywood,”
“What Donald Trump was able to galvanize is kinda what I call Jacksonian populism, which is always very concerned about an elite in Washington, DC, with Hamiltonian economic nationalism. The two great forces of 19th century politics have really been combined in this modern movement.”
“Like [Andrew] Jackson’s populism, we’re going to build an entirely new political movement … The conservatives are going to go crazy. I’m the guy pushing a trillion-dollar infrastructure plan.”
Economic Nationalism-Non-Partisan Issue
‘The only question before us: Is it going to be a left-wing populism or a right-wing populism. That is the question that will be answered in 2020.’
The Problem With the Democratic Party
“The problem in the Democratic Party? They haven’t had a civil war. They’ll never be competitive” until internal discord is resolved."
