Steve Bannon is a kind of Dr Strangelove or Prince of Darkness in the Trump team, the most influential man behind the president of the United States, his mastermind and spin-doctor.
The former investment banker from Goldman Sachs and later boss of the ultral-conservative Breitbart News is now his senior advisor in the White House.
He looks weird. With a melancholic view. Unshared like a homeless in front of Trump Tower. Overweighted too. Dressed in simple cloths. With no style.
Inside him is a lot of imagination. A steel of hate about the establishment. Sharp words to attack everybody who is seen as an enemy; he has many. The will of a revolutionary to change America, now, rapid, forever, radical, no matter what.
He is Mr Trumpism.
He has many ideas.
He has the power and the guts to implement his ideas for America – a conservative anti-liberal contra-revolution.
If you love or hate him, he did an excellent job to push Donald Trump and his world vision for America in the 21st century into the White House. With him in the team joining in August Trump won against all odds.
In an interview with Hollywood Reporter November 18, 2016, he explained the ideology and vision for the Trump Presidency, a new Republican party and political movement, and a nationalistic and ultra-conservative America, dominated by populism, isolationism and nationalism.
He is not heading to conserve traditional America, but promoting a second American revolution after the Founding Fathers and first president George Washington.
Here his own words:
- I’m not a white nationalist, I’m a nationalist. I’m an economic nationalist.
- Darkness is good. Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s power. It only helps us when they (the media) get it wrong. When they’re blind to who we are and what we’re doing.
- GLOBALO has interviewed Darth Vader- read here what he tells the world.
- The working man was betrayed by the establishment.
- “Ascendant America” are the old elites, as well as “the metrosexual bubble” that encompasses cosmopolitan sensibilities to be found as far and wide as Shanghai, London’s Chelsea, Hollywood and the Upper West Side — as a world apart. In his view, there’s hardly a connection between this world and its opposite — fly-over America, left-behind America, downwardly mobile America — hardly a common language. This is partly why he regards the liberal characterization of himself as socially vile, as the politically incorrect devil incarnate, as laughable — and why he is stoutly unapologetic. They — liberals and media — don’t understand what he is saying, or why, or to whom.
- The globalists gutted the American working class and created a middle class in Asia. The issue now is about Americans looking to not get f—ed over.
- If we deliver we’ll get 60 percent of the white vote, and 40 percent of the black and Hispanic vote and we’ll govern for 50 years. That’s what the Democrats missed. They were talking to these people with companies with a $9 billion market cap employing nine people. It’s not reality. They lost sight of what the world is about.
- Like [Andrew] Jackson’s populism, we’re going to build an entirely new political movement. It’s everything related to jobs. The conservatives are going to go crazy.
- I’m the guy pushing a trillion-dollar infrastructure plan. With negative interest rates throughout the world, it’s the greatest opportunity to rebuild everything. Ship yards, iron works, get them all jacked up. We’re just going to throw it up against the wall and see if it sticks. It will be as exciting as the 1930s, greater than the Reagan revolution — conservatives, plus populists, in an economic nationalist movement.
- The media bubble is the ultimate symbol of what’s wrong with this country. It’s just a circle of people talking to themselves who have no f—ing idea what’s going on. If The New York Times didn’t exist, CNN and MSNBC would be a test pattern. The Huffington Post and everything else is predicated on The New York Times. It’s a closed circle of information from which Hillary Clinton got all her information — and her confidence. That was our opening.
- Rupert Murdoch (Fox News) is a globalist and never understood Trump. To him, Trump is a radical. Now they’ll go centrist and build the network around Megyn Kelly.
- You have probably the greatest orator since William Jennings Bryan, coupled with an economic populist message and two political parties that are so owned by the donors that they don’t speak to their audience. But he speaks in a non-political vernacular, he communicates with these people in a very visceral way. Nobody in the Democratic party listened to his speeches, so they had no idea he was delivering such a compelling and powerful economic message. He shows up 3.5 hours late in Michigan at 1 in the morning and has 35,000 people waiting in the cold.
- I knew that Clinton couldn’t close. They out-spent us 10 to one, had 10 times more people and had all the media with them, but I kept saying it doesn’t matter, they got it all wrong, we’ve got this locked.
- I am Thomas Cromwell in the court of the Tudors.
