#KEEP BANNON !
Remember when President Donald J. Trump was just "candidate", Donald J. Trump? Remember when Donald J. Trump cared about the average every day American and not the top one percent? Remember when Donald J. Trump cared about the small businesses and less about big corporations? Remember when Donald J. Trump spoke of a tax plan that would aid in bringing back the middle class? Remember when Donald J. Trump cared about the middle class? Remember when Donald J. Trump had leanings more to the right and nationalism, than to left and globalism? Remember when Donald J.Trump spoke out against the establishment, the Goldman -Sachs Executives, globalists, and neo-cons? Remember when Donald J. Trump criticized Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen by calling her a political hack, who kept interest rates low as to help the Obama administration, and accused her of creating a false market? Remember when Donald J. Trump named China as a currency manipulator, and said NATO was obsolete? Remember when Donald J. Trump was against Obama getting involved in the war in Syria? Remember when the Trump campaign was in serious danger of losing, but then due to the hiring of Kellyanne Conway as his campaign manager, and Steve Bannon, as chief executive officer, he turned around and won? Remember Donald J. Trump the candidate, was the candidate that appeared to be as important to many as the second coming of Christ?
I do remember the candidate, Donald J. Trump, and from what I am seeing of President Donald J. Trump, I am somewhat confused. While strides to make America great again are being taken, I am seeing an administration that is looking more and more like that of a Democratic administration and not a Republican administration. In fact, President Donald J. Trump's administration could be likened to that of what I envisioned would be a Hillary Clinton administration. I didn't vote for Hillary Clinton. I voted for Donald J. Trump and the platform on which he ran. I also didn't vote for the president's daughter, Ivanka, nor did I vote for the president's son in-law, Jared Kushner. At present there is chatter the two think they are the real "first couple". Hearing this is concerning to many. Jared Kushner a now senior adviser to the president, is a Democrat who contributed $100,000 to Democrats. To name a few, Hillary in 2000, Chuck Schumer, and Cory Booker. Kushner also contributed to the campaigns of Democrats that supported Obama on granting temporary legal status to millions of illegal immigrants in 2014. Not to mention, that Jared's father, Charles, supposedly admired by the president, served two years in prison for income tax evasion, illegal campaign contributions, and witness tampering. It is believed that Jared Kushner can not possibly share the same views as Steve Bannon, a real conservative who once had the president's ear. Nor can First Daughter Ivanka have the same views as Steve Bannon. The candidate, Donald J. Trump ran on a Steve Bannon agenda, and that was the agenda so many Americans embraced. It was an agenda of "America First". It was an agenda of new political order. It was an agenda against Goldman Sachs being in charge of our nation's economics. It was an agenda against the globalists. It was a nationalist economic agenda. It was a conservative agenda. It was the agenda of Donald J. Trump. Is it the agenda of President Trump? When mainstream media and more and more Democrats, as well as those in opposition to the President, are applauding the President instead of critiquing the president, one has to think twice.
Today the nationalist economic agenda of Donald J. Trump appears to be nothing, but that of a distant memory. Just recently, the liberal based Politico publication named President Trump, "Donald Rodham Clinton". As his cabinet appears to be looking more and more "Clintonian", it's hard to argue. Another publication stated that having Kushner and Ivanka at the helm of the administration would ensure they would carry the "Clintonian torch". It's hard to defend the President's cabinet, as his cabinet is consisting of the very people whom he spoke out against. Just to name a few, the President once against Democrat, Janet Yellen serving another term as Chairwoman of the Federal Reserve, the President is now said to be considering her serving another term. Gary Cohn, the president's chairman of the National Economic Council was not surprisingly brought in by the President's Democrat son in-law Jared Kushner. Cohn, a Democrat is the former Chief Operating Officer and president of Goldman-Sachs. Cohn chiefly reflects the socially liberal and economically conservative views of Wall Street power brokers. Steve Mnuchin, the Secretary of Treasury, is a hedge fund man who before working for George Soros' funded One West Bank worked for Goldman-Sachs. Mnuchin is said to have contributed to both Hillary Clinton's senate and presidential campaigns. Dina Powell, the U.S. Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategy, brought in by First Daughter, Ivanka, is yet another Goldman Sachs alumni. Powell was president of the Goldman-Sachs Foundation. Powell may well be a registered Republican is said to be for globalization. Let it also be noted that Powell replaced K.T. McFarland a person far more qualified for such a position with her vast experience as a Fox News Security analyst, and extensive resume working for former Republican presidents. K.T. McFarland has been moved to the position of Ambassador to Singapore. While it is believed by some that McFarland was not a good fit for the her position. others are not surprised with the departure of like minded former National Security Adviser, ousted, General Mike Flynn. Flynn's replacement is presently H. R. Lt. General H.R. McMaster, who is said to have interventionist leanings to the left. Leanings to the left seems to be a good thing in the Trump administration.
Perhaps the demise of the Bannon-Trump agenda was Steve Bannon being on the cover of Time magazine on February 13th. Time magazine titled the cover, "The Great Manipulator", Steve Bannon, Chief White House Strategist. While one may not be a fan of the liberal based mainstream media, one has to give credit to Time magazine for being a great manipulator themselves. In essence, Time magazine quite possibly manipulated the President. As it has been rumored that President Trump likes to keep all magazines in which his puss graces the cover, he may well have felt one upped by Steve Bannon. Steve Bannon gracing the cover could have been the final straw, as there was much talk that Bannon was the actual president ,and Trump was merely a puppet. While it is doubtful that such is true, mainstream media may well have played a part in the changes in the Trump agenda. Well not just mainstream media, as son in-law Jared Kushner and First Daughter Ivanka are also said to have a desire for the removal of Bannon.
The removal of Steve Bannon, a man who was so instrumental in the success of Trump's campaign could possibly be coming sooner than later. Just last week Bannon has lost his position on the principals committee of the National Security council. A man that was once the President's right arm was just recently snubbed publicly by the president. In a recent exchange with New York Post columnist, Michael Goodwin. Trumps exact words when asked about Steve Bannon were as follows, "I like Steve, but you have to remember he was not involved in my campaign until very late. I had already beaten all the senators and all the governors, and I didn’t know Steve. I’m my own strategist and it wasn’t like I was going to change strategies because I was facing crooked Hillary." The President's statement certainly took any and all credit away from Steve Bannon. The fact is, while President Trump had a great deal of support at the time, his numbers were also falling prior to Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway. The Bannon, Trump, Conway, and General Flynn team was a winning team. It was their vision, their agenda, and their strategy that won the presidency. Unfortunately, with Jared and Ivanka said to be in charge of hiring, the MAGA Trump agenda will be sure to be lost.
It is said that in competition that one should always change a losing game and never change a winning game. When President Trump won, he won with a winning team. It was a team that vowed to "Make America Great Again". It was team that cared about small businesses, and creating jobs. It was a team that cared about the middle class by lowering taxes. It was a team that vowed to repeal and replace the inevitably imploding Obama Care. It was a team that vowed to block the influx of unvetted Muslim immigrants. It was a team that vowed to wage war on the terrorist group ISIS. It was a team that didn't believe in unnecessary wars. ( Bannon is said to have not recommended the air strike in Syria) It was a team that vowed to close America's borders, and build a wall. It was to be a big wall with a big beautiful door. It was a team that heard the people and it was a team that said what the people wanted to hear.
"You can't always get what you want", was the song played at the President's rallies, and perhaps such is true. America wanted a president who would go after and defeat ISIS, and President Trump proved he will in dropping the MOAB (mother of all bombs) on ISIS in Afghanistan just last week after an American green beret had been killed. Defeating ISIS is indeed what I and America wanted out of the Trump administrtion. However, many of the changes within the Trump administration are not what I and many conservatives wanted. I voted for and wanted President Trump and First Lady Melania in the White House. I also voted for the Bannon Nationalist agenda. I did not vote for Jared Kushner and Ivanka. Had Jared and Ivanka been listed in the Republican primary, I would not have voted for them. Their ideology is not of which the Trump campaign ran. As it appears with infighting that Kushner is pushing Bannon out, the nationalist ideology may well be lost, but then "you can't always get what you want", or is it, "you can't always get everything you want?
