President Bannon Is Leading US To Disaster – Trump Totally Clueless (TWEETS)




We’ve been watching this shit show for over a month and becoming increasingly unsure that our country will survive the Trump presidency. Could it be that the Simpsons was spot-on when President Lisa Simpson had to come in after a disastrous Trump presidency and fix the country? It wouldn’t be the first time The Simpsons correctly predicted the future.

President Bannon? Wait… WHAT?

Donald Trump was elected to the presidency after an almost two year joke of a campaign even though he lost the popular vote by almost 3 million actual votes. Unfortunately, he managed to win the Electoral College. The system explained by Alexander Hamilton in Federalist No. 68 to keep a man like him from rising to a position like this failed in a bigly way.

We are one month and a couple of weeks into the 45th president’s term and one thing is very evident – the real president is not Donald Trump. The REAL person running our country is an unelected and unvetted white supremacist neo-NaziPresident Steve Bannon.

In the opening paragraph of a scathing call-out, GQ laid out the facts plain and simple:

“If Donald Trump has shown anything during his first eleven days in office, it’s that he’s a coward with no ideas of his own, who is more than happy to be a puppet for the true president of the United States: Steve Bannon. Sure, Trump acts like he’s in charge, but that’s because he’s too dumb to realize that Bannon is so obviously pulling the strings that he’s become a joke. A real, impressive winner (not a Fake! Sad! Loser! like Trump) would recognize he’s being manipulated by a power-hungry jackass who is actively trying to destroy the founding principles of this nation. And what’s truly crazy is that that statement isn’t even slightly hyperbolic.”

Keep those cameras rolling – we need this on record so Trump can keep those ratings high.

The problem is that this isn’t a reality TV show – this is real life. The actions of a probably insane, or possibly mentally incapacitated Donald Trump are affecting millions of people and will have a lasting affect on our nation. He needs to be stopped. To do that, we must unseat the real president – Steve Bannon.

So why is President Bannon dangerous?

Shortly after the election results were tallied, GQ made mention of what Trump voters seeking economic respite had really done by giving their votes to Trump:

“You helped at least two terrifying monsters get to a place of extreme power.”

After signing on as Trump’s Campaign CEO in August 2016, Bannon was quoted in a Vanity Fair interview saying that:

“Trump is a ‘blunt instrument for us. I don’t know whether he really gets it or not.’”

Trump doesn’t seem to realize that he is being used as a patsy. He is playing a role. As long as he has the title and the spotlight, he doesn’t seem to care what President Bannon is doing in his name. Trump’s ego is driving him to seek the adoration of the nation – and his entire staff is lying to him and telling him how great he is. As long as they keep feeding his ego and keep him away from real news stories telling the truth about what is being done, he will be like putty in their hands.

Trump grandstands while signing Executive Orders for ridiculous policies that he hasn’t even read. He makes a huge show of talking tough and hanging up the phone on other world leaders. He even put on a show of “firing” the acting Attorney General in person when she refused to follow a likely unconstitutional ban on Muslims entering our country based on nothing more than their country of origin and their religion. From the Huffington Post:

“Since taking office, Trump has done little to unite the country. His first week as president was marked by a succession of executive orders that targeted Muslims and refugees, ordered the construction of a border wall, and began unraveling the nation’s healthcare.”

Trump is being played for a fool – because he is.

What comes next?

What the country needs to do is unify. Will that happen? Probably not any time soon. We are too fractured.

For months, legitimate news agencies followed Trump like a puppy dog, reporting on his every fart. Their reliability is now in serious doubt as they attempt to turn around and actually report real news. People seem immune to the truth because they heard the falsities for so long. Cognitive Dissonance is the biggest threat to our continued existence.

Smaller, independent news outlets (like this one) have been reporting real news with their particular left or right slant, and have been more reliable than mainstream news. As we continue this path, some mainstream news outlets have started calling out the Trump lies and holding his press representatives feet to the fire on live TV – but is it too little too late?




When mainstream news agencies report the truth, Trump and his minions shout “FAKE NEWS” far and wide trying to direct attention away from the real news. The Trump administration has gone as far as to block major news outlets from the White House press room and official briefings. What are they hiding? Since when is the existence of “Alternative Facts” a thing?

It is time to re-enact the Fairness Doctrine and hold our news agencies to a higher standard. They are not in the entertainment business – they need to stop worrying about ratings and give us real news.

Without adequate reporting of what is happening in our nation, President Bannon may get his wish and disassemble our country from the inside out.
