After Roy Moore’s Loss, Steve Bannon Remains Emboldened To Fight GOP Establishment

After Judge Roy Moore was defeated in Alabama by his ultra-liberal opponent Doug Jones, many Republican strategists are saying that this unexpected defeat was Steve Bannon’s swan song. The Breitbart News executive editor was a huge Roy Moore backer, and lost big on Tuesday, but refuses to give up on his war against the GOP establishment. According to a Newsweek report, Bannon described himself as “totally uncowed” following the election results despite the set-back. He plans to rush headlong into 2018, but wants to make sure that future candidates express his message of economic populism more forcefully than Judge Moore.… Keep Reading

Leftists Cower In Catalonia, Surrender On Independence Movement Following Successful Referendum

Catalan President Carles Puidgemont and his PdeCat party, as well as their allies in the Republican Left of Catalonia (ERL), have effectively surrendered their independence back to the Spanish national government after last month’s successful referendum. Instead of demanding freedom, they will now beg for scraps from their national masters. “The draft follows this line. It is not finished. It seems like a good route to work on,” PdeCat party coordinator Marta Pascal said in a recent interview, desperate to create justification for her party’s surrender. Madrid had imposed draconian sanctions after the people of Catalonia voted to secede from… Keep Reading

Will Steve Bannon Stand Behind Judge Roy Moore?

Breitbart News Executive Director Steve Bannon, who frequently boasts about his plans of a populist revolution seeking to overturn the GOP orthodoxy since leaving the Trump administration, is facing his first big test as political kingmaker. Judge Roy Moore, the anti-establishment GOP Senate contender in Alabama, is facing immense attacks for accusations of sexual improprieties, and the heat continues to build against the Bannon pick. “Even Chuck Todd, the swampiest creature of swamp creatures, he walked through it yesterday on Meet the Press. He said it felt completely orchestrated,” Bannon said on SiriusXM radio, indicating that he does not buy… Keep Reading

Steve Bannon: It Is “Workers, Not Libertarian Theorists, Who Are The Backbone Of The Country”

Breitbart News executive director Steve Bannon recently addressed criticism that has dogged him since publicly aligning with President Donald Trump: that he is a racist. He denies such charges as baseless smears, claiming that blacks and hispanics are key parts of the winning nationalist coalition he is formulating to restore America. “Once we get 25 percent or 30 percent of the black working class, once we get 25 percent or 30 percent of the Hispanic working class, we’re gonna govern for 100 years,” Bannon said to White House reporter Keith Koffler. Koffler is working on a new biography, “Bannon, Always… Keep Reading

Austrian Election Results Move Nation To The Right Amid Influx Of Muslim Migrants

With their traditional Western and Christian culture at stake, Austria held their parliamentary election on Sunday, October 15th. After the coalition government collapsed and the two longtime partner parties turned on one another, the country had to make a decision–patriotism or globalism. Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz is the center-right Austrian People’s Party candidate who was expected to win yesterday, and he did not disappoint. His opponents were Christian Kern of the Social Democratic Party of Austria and the leader of the Freedom Party of Austria, Heinz-Christian Strache. Keep Reading

Steve Bannon Plots Revolution Against GOP Establishment, Targets Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch For Removal

Steve Bannon continues his ruthless pursuit against his enemies in the GOP establishment. As Executive Director of Breitbart News, he has hammered enemies of President Donald Trump’s populist ‘America First’ agenda relentlessly. He is recruiting primary challengers for next year’s mid-term elections, and recently attempted to convince an anti-establishment hopeful to take out Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT). Bannon met with Boyd Matheson while the two men were both in Washington D.C. last week. According to a Deseret News report, Bannon tried to convince Matheson to run against Hatch, a long-time establishment favorite, in a primary election next year as apart… Keep Reading

The Dawning Of ‘Roy Moore Libertarianism’

Ever since Ron Paul retired from public life in 2012, libertarians have been completely rudderless. As much as libertarians may like to delude themselves that they do not need leaders, it has become abundantly clear that they need them as much as anyone. Without a strong leadership figure, libertarians have accomplished little other than being a national laughingstock. The post-Paul era has been defined by nothing but folly and embarrassment for libertarians, who are stubbornly unwilling to admit the political reality staring them in the face. The silver lining is that it should not be particularly hard for libertarians to… Keep Reading

Monopoly Man Trolls Wall Street Fat Cats During Congressional Hearing

Rich Uncle Pennybags, commonly known as the mascot from the classic board game Monopoly, showed up on Capitol Hill today to troll Equifax, a corporation whose negligence caused a massive data breach putting the personal credit information of over 100 million individuals up for grabs. The activist wore Pennybags’ signature top hat and distinguished white mustache while dawning a lavish suit during the Senate Banking Committee hearing on Wednesday. He even pulled out his signature monocle to get a better look at former Equifax CEO Richard Smith as he took the stand and gave testimony, taking full responsibility for the… Keep Reading

Steve Bannon: The New Kingmaker Of The Right-Wing?

When Steve Bannon was in the White House, President Donald Trump made it abundantly clear that he was the real strategist and his chief strategist, Bannon, was only secondary. “I like Steve, but you have to remember he was not involved in my campaign until very late… I’m my own strategist and it wasn’t like I was going to change strategies because I was facing crooked Hillary,” Trump said in an interview earlier this year. However, Bannon’s maneuvers since leaving the White House and returning to his post as Executive Director of Breitbart News show that he may have been… Keep Reading

Steve Bannon Plots Populist Uprising In Colorado Alongside Tom Tancredo

Ever since he left the White House, Breitbart News executive director Steve Bannon has been a very busy man. He spent the better part of last week stumping successfully for Judge Roy Moore to aid his Alabama primary victory against his establishment opponent, Luther Strange. Far from resting on his laurels, Bannon traveled to Colorado for a meeting with paleoconservative firebrand Tom Tancredo. “Ok. What the hell. He is here and yes we met. Fascinating guy. No idea what else his plans are here or frankly, what brought him here. But you know he is my boss at Breitbart!” Tancredo… Keep Reading

‘Flake The Snake’ Throws Roy Moore Under The Bus To Virtue-Signal For Radical Islam

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) has turned into one of the least popular politicians in America for standing against President Donald Trump’s populist revolution that has swept the nation. He spent the better part of last year trying to get Hillary Clinton into the oval office, and now he has set his sights on Judge Roy Moore. Former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore is a Donald Trump Republican. Despite not being endorsed by Trump (a move that the President publicly admitted may have been a mistake), Moore campaigned as the ultimate iconoclast and soundly defeated his establishment-backed opponent in the… Keep Reading

Steve Bannon Scores First Major Victory In His War Against The Republican Establishment

The storyline was established for the Alabama Republican primary. Another election between two opposing foes became a critical battleground between opposing factions. While the conservative grassroots has long butted heads with the Republican establishment, tensions were never higher. With both sides pulling out the big guns and piling on an avalanche of money, the race was the center of national intrigue. Through out the primary, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was on the ground in Alabama making sure that the conservative grassroots comes out on top. When Bannon originally joined the White House, he was widely criticized within… Keep Reading

German Chancellor Angela Merkel Re-Elected To Fourth Term

It was a big day for Germany as election day rolled around. Many expected that German Chancellor Angela Merkel would secure a fourth election, but the bigger question was how the other results would come in. Would the populist uprising that is taking place throughout the world gain more momentum with the results? Chancellor Merkel ultimately secured her fourth term, but the damage was done to her coalition as the right wing had its biggest surge in decades. The Alternative for Germany (AfD) holds 13 percent of the seats in Parliament and has already promised to complicate life for the… Keep Reading

Steve Bannon Meets With Right-Wing Billionaires To Plot “Breitbart TV” Network

As liberals and neoconservatives run victory laps over Steve Bannon’s dismissal (or resignation) from the Trump administration, they should be careful not to get ahead of themselves. Bannon is ready to unleash hades on his enemies, meeting with billionaires shortly after returning to Breitbart to discuss the possibility of launching a TV network. Jane Mayer, a New Yorker staff reporter, has covered Robert and Rebekah Mercer extensively. They are the right-wing billionaires who fund Breitbart and rose through their association with Trump to become perhaps the most prominent financiers in the conservative movement. Mayer reported that Robert Mercer and Bannon… Keep Reading

The Masses In Motion: Why Libertarian Populism Is The Way Forward

For students of political strategy, the 2016 presidential race was a remarkable and informative election. This is especially true for grassroots libertarians who want to learn how to build an electoral coalition capable of winning national elections. It shows why libertarian populism must be the way forward for activists interested in advancing the liberty movement. Donald Trump – or should I say President Trump – accomplished something incredible: he methodically took down sixteen of the Republican Party’s best candidates in the primaries and then annihilated Hillary Clinton in an electoral landslide, holding on to traditional red states while winning states… Keep Reading

Populism Always Wins: Why Libertarians Must Take Notice

Populism, the Austrian economist and academic vice president of the Mises Institute Joseph Salerno wrote, is nothing by a strategy. It may be applied by individuals advancing both left- and right-wing ideologies, but it is seldom used by those with the right ideas. Due to its historic connection to ideologies that led to war, mass murder, and economic collapse, however, populism has been erroneously associated with bad politics. Regardless of political preferences, one thing is true: Whenever embraced by charismatic leaders, the populist approach is often the winner, whether it’s used to sell radical left-wing causes under leaders like Hugo… Keep Reading
