REPORT: Steve Bannon Supported Syria Strike; Maintains Distance From Right-Wing Media

White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has been called a right-wing firebrand, a tea party favorite, and even a white nationalist for his role in creating the Trump presidency. However, Bannon’s true nature is shaping up to be much different than the hype if recent reports are to be believed.

In a New York Magazine article, journalist Olivia Nuzzi gave a glimpse to a different side of Bannon than what is usually portrayed by the media. She portrays Bannon as a man who has expended very little of his political capital to get nationalist allies into key White House positions, and has grown distant to the right-wing media outlets seeking his guidance.

“He has a lot of friends out on the internet who love him, but we are all still waiting for him to unleash the beast,” said Charles Johnson, editor-in-chief of GotNews.com.

Another source close to the President has even disputed reports that Bannon pushed back against the controversial and unauthorized strikes in Syria against Bashir al-Assad. “He never objected to the bombing in Syria — never. Tells people he did, but that’s a [expletive] lie,” the source told New York Magazine reporters.

“By The Waters Of Babylon We Sat And Wept”

in World by

“By the Waters of Babylon” by Don McLean Iraq,  once known as the “cradle of civilization” may soon come to be known as the  “graveyard of civilization.”  The first laws, writing, astronomy and math were all gifts that Mesopotamia gave to advance civilization.  The most famous Mesopotamian from Ur of the Chaldeans, was Abraham,  the  patriarch of the three great religions; Christianity, Judaism and Islam.  Today the land  is being torn apart by religion and foreign intervention.  After the creation of Israel, most of the once large and thriving ancient Jewish community in Iraq fled.  My father came from Iraq to America in 1952 because he realized that Iraq was not a nation for a Christian man to raise a family.  He was an indigenous Chaldean who spoke Aramaic, the language of Christ, and wanted to be free to practice his Catholic faith. The number of  Christians who have emigrated from Iraq is over 1 million and increasing since the most recent societal breakdown. Soon the indigenous Christians could disappear…

Perry Gets It Wrong On Reagan

in Politics by

With the 2016 presidential primary races seemingly just around the corner, one new face that has begun to emerge on the Sunday shows and all over the political commentary sites as of late has been Rick Perry. Perry seemingly began to lay the groundwork for a 2016 bid with a rousing speech at CPAC, where he literally brought the entire room to their feet with an impassioned cry to get the US economy back on track, and has followed this up recently with his high profile meetings surrounding immigration with President Obama. Perry has begun to capitalize on this publicity by attempting to stake out his position in the 2016 field, and in a recent Washington Post article Perry took several shots at the foreign policy of current GOP frontrunner Rand Paul. Among these shots was the declaration that Rand gets the Ronald Reagan record on foreign policy wrong. Perry claims that Reagan confronted the Soviet Union in every theater (including, supposedly, on the battlefield) and paints a very confrontational picture of the Reagan…

America, Declare Your Independence From The Fed!

in Economics/Politics by

Once upon a time in America our grandfathers were able to work at decent jobs where they actually produced goods that the world needed and were able to provide a comfortable life for their large families.  Grandma didn’t have to work  and most families owned their own homes and lived relatively debt free. Welcome to America today where a typical family has both parents working, with  one or possibly two children,  and struggle to pay the rent on their apartment. But the banks in their “concern” for the woes of the average Joe have come up with a solution. It is called the credit card where we can become debt slaves to the banks to the tune of double-digit interest rates. What has happened to weaken the once thriving American economy we inherited from our forefathers? It’s called the Federal Reserve and its offspring inflation. This invisible tax slowly eats away at the value of the dollar and distorts the economy by creating booms and busts. We can thank the Federal Reserve for…

Considering Foreign Policy Issues: Sanctions & Statements!

in Politics by

Too often, Liberty-minded conservatives make the mistake of claiming certain leaders to be neocons without truly understanding what this means. Obvious answers on who are neocons can be agreed upon by all: John McCain. Lindsey Graham. Eric Cantor. But the Liberty Movement must rethink certain issues and consider having allies. That does not mean compromising our values but being willing to consider certain issues from a different perspective. First, we need to stop calling anybody who supports sanctions on certain countries neocons. While some may argue justifiably that sanctions are unnecessary and costly to the United States, they are a more peaceful alternative to going to war. Consider sanctions liked dealing with a schoolyard bully by refusing to make any interactions with him. That is a preferred action to punching him which is the equivalent of going to war. Does that mean that if you oppose sanctions you should support them? By no means. But do think carefully before you begin calling anybody who supports sanctions a neocon. They…

Rand Paul: The Most Conservative, The Most Electable

in Politics by

It may seem rather unbelievable, but we are only 7-8 months away from the 2016 primaries starting to ramp up, with several candidates saying they will begin to make their decisions in early 2015. Though we have the most wide open field the Republican Party has ever seen at this juncture, it would not be a stretch to say that Rand Paul is the current frontrunner for the GOP nomination. Indeed, through all of his recent actions Paul is showing both the vision and the ability to put together the kind of organization that is necessary for him to win the nomination and the presidency. This has given libertarians and constitutional conservatives alike plenty of reason to be excited for the future.   Though the polling can obviously change, as it stands in late June Rand Paul is leading the plurality of early national polls for the GOP nomination. Both the latest CNN/Opinion Research and ABC News/Wash Post polls have Paul winning by 2 points and 1 point, respectively,…

How To Win The War On Poverty

in Economics/Politics by

Lyndon Johnson launched the “War on Poverty” in 1964. In the fifty years since its inception, hundreds of billions, if not trillions of dollars have been spent by the government, countless governmental programs have been implemented, and numerous and enormous bureaucracies have been created. The results of these initiatives have largely been that of failure, but excuses continue to be made as to why prior programs have failed, why subsequent reforms have failed, and new programs and reforms are continuously proposed and implemented. In spite of all this, present times and recent history have seen a shrinking of the middle class along with an ever-widening disparity between the very wealthy and those who are barely getting by. Living standards largely do not seem to be improving for the lower and middle classes. For the first time in this country’s history, the younger generations do not have the expectation of doing better than their previous generation. If legislating away poverty was possible, it would have occurred long ago. For poverty…

A True Liberty Conservative

in Politics by

Dr. Dave Brat truly embodies what it means to be a Liberty Conservative. This libertarian-leaning economics professor, Tea Party activist and family man recently achieved the greatest political upset of the decade in a historic primary challenge against the third most powerful elected Republican in the United States, Eric Cantor, and his $2 million war chest. Brat has humble roots. He grew up a devout Protestant in Detroit, the son of a medical doctor and a social worker. He then travelled to Virginia and Princeton for college and earned degrees in divinity and business administration along with a doctorate in economics, before going on to serve as a professor at a liberal arts college in Richmond, where he stood true to his faith in God and the free market, despite strong intellectual opposition from the collegiate elite. He was finally appointed to advise Virginia Governor Tim Kaine on economic policy, a surprising move for a liberal Democrat such as Kaine. While by no means a radical, Brat is an…

Jack Kingston For Senate In Georgia!

in Politics by

Liberty Conservatives is  honored to announce our endorsement of Rep. Jack Kingston to be the next senator to represent Georgia. Throughout his career, he has a consistent record of cutting spending, passing bills to stop radical government encroachments, and defending our civil liberties. His runoff opponent is a liberal RINO who proudly supports “fixing” Dodd-Frank instead of repealing it, raising taxes (2), and defending Common Core. We cannot afford this radical leftist in Georgia. Jack Kingston has not been perfect, and we have squabbled with him on some appropriation bills. But on the Appropriations committee, he was recognized as one of the most conservative members, with RedState even endorsing him for the chairmanship. And we are confident with a review of Kingston’s record that he will protect the sanctity of life, defend the 2nd Amendment (unlike his runoff opponent), oppose the Patriot Act and the NSA, fight tax increases, and cut spending. First, Rep. Jack Kingston has always been a favorite of Conservatives and Tea Partiers throughout the country. In 2010, tea partiers supported Kingston’s…

How Standing With Rand Has Broadened The Liberty Movement


in Politics by

Recently Steve Deace, a man for whom I have tremendous respect and admiration, had some very poignant questions as to Rand Paul’s commitment to upholding liberty principles. As a person in the liberty movement who supported Ron Paul and now Stands with Rand with conviction that runs just as deep, I had some immediate thoughts on how to answer the questions posed. Deace asks of the liberty movement “Is it a movement to advance a slate of issues/principles, or is it a movement intended to get Rand Paul elected the next president of the United States? The truth is if it’s the latter, that’s precisely how Rand will never win—as the civil rights and Religious Right movements of yesteryear can now attest. Once the acquisition of power replaces the mission the vision becomes compromised, and so does the movement.” I would start by stating, unequivocally, that the liberty movement is not about one man nor has it ever been, despite how the media attempted to portray us as the “cult of…
