Who’s Dumb Now? Trump & Bannon Playing Washington’s Elite Like a Stradivarius

Elder Patriot – By now you know that Steve Bannon has declared war on the Republican establishmentarians that have systematically lied to their fellow Americans, in concert with the Democrats, to advance a one-world government and crush any vestiges of nationalism.

President Trump knows this.  He became president, sacrificing his cushy lifestyle and risking much of his fortune, by running to restore our national sovereignty.  It’s unfathomable that he has suddenly sold out to Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer and their band of government that he ran against.

As for Bannon, he was a major influence in making Trump’s campaign successful largely because he and Trump were solidly on the same page about what would be necessary to make America great again.  Trump announced their plan to America in the most forthright manner, “Drain the Swamp.” 

Frankly, despite mainstream globalist media (MGM) reports to the contrary, it appears Trump and Bannon are working both sides of the street together.

So when President Trump granted Mitch McConnell an audience yesterday it was to let the Senate Majority Leader know any power McConnell hoped to maintain would be determined by his ability to deliver on the president’s agenda.

McConnell, he of the 18% approval rating in his home state, tried using the impromptu presser that followed the meeting with Trump to position himself in between Trump and Bannon. 

It was an act of desperation by a once powerful man who is watching his army of RINO’s being dismantled by Bannon.

McConnell returned to the tired rhetoric of the past.  The same rhetoric that delivered Trump to the White House:

“Our primary approach will be to support our incumbents and in open seats to seek to help nominate people who can actually win in November.  That’s my approach. That’s the way you keep a governing majority.

That’s not how Trump won last November.  He was considered un-electable but won despite the lack of support from Republican leadership – including being denounced on numerous occasions by McConnell.

Trump also clearly sees how McConnell’s “governing majority” has failed to yield even a single significant plank of the president’s agenda – an agenda that the American people continue to overwhelmingly support. 

Trump is no fool.  He is well aware of McConnell’s tight control of the Senate and, as a pragmatist and person of action, Trump wants action on his agenda now, not to have to wait until after the 2018 elections.

So, Trump has given McConnell a reprieve, albeit while keeping him on a short leash.  His comments yesterday confirmed that for people who listened carefully:

“Steve is doing what Steve thinks is the right thing.  Some of the people that he may be looking at I’m gonna see if we talk him outta that, cause frankly, they’re great people.”

“I’m gonna see if we talk him outta that.”  Vintage Trump signaling to McConnell, move the agenda I’ve set or I’m going to back those “great people” that my good friend and fellow traveler Steve Bannon has assembled.

Trump has boxed McConnell into a corner and McConnell knows it, which is why he said:

“We have the same agenda.  “We’re going to get this job done and the goal is to get it done by the end of the year.” 

Trump and McConnell both know that the Senator has his hands full trying to turn the team of globalists he helped elect into nationalists.

Checkmate Trump.

How about House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer?

If you recall they rushed out of a dinner meeting the president invited them to and attempted to co-opt the immigration debate by announcing that:

“We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides.”

While the MGM breathlessly reported that Trump had caved we told you that he had played them both:

“The fact is Schumer and Pelosi just reassured their constituents that they won the amnesty battle.  Make no mistake DACA recipients and those who care about them are Democrat constituents.  They will never be Trump supporters.  If Schumer and Pelosi fail to deliver they will suffer the wrath from this group, not Trump.  Also, anti-Trump Congressional Republicans will now be forced to choose sides for everyone to see.

“Leverage to Trump.”

Trump let the Democrat leaders’ promise marinate with their constituents for a month and then used yesterday’s presser with McConnell to declare, in answer to a question posed by ABC’s Jon Karl if he would insist that funding the border wall would have to be part of any deal he made with the Democrats to provide a solution for DACA recipients:

“We need a wall in this country. You know it, I know it, everybody knows it.  We need a wall and that will be part of it.

“We have a very good relationship with Mexico but there are a lot of problems, and we don’t want the drugs and we don’t want the crime, but we need the wall.”

Then President Trump drove a stake through the hearts of Democrats’ plan to benefit from chain migration when he added that he had:

“Recently, we’ve asked Congress to ensure that any proposed immigration reform ends chain migration.  It’s critical for creating a system that puts American workers and the American taxpayer first.”

DACA was designed by Obama as a wedge issue to open the floodgates for tens of millions of immigrants without regard for the costs that would accompany them – social services, lost American jobs, schools, police and fire protection, crime, etc., etc.  Republicans, led by McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan did nothing to stop it despite holding majorities.

With 800,000 DACA recipients’ hopes, along with millions of Latino votes, hanging in the balance, Trump is going to get what he wants – the Wall and the end of unconstitutional chain migration.

Checkmate Trump.

Who are the inexperienced dupes now?
