we don't yet know what stephen bannon's fate in the trump white house is. but judging by president donald trump's own words, it doesn't sound particularly good.in a brief exchange with the new york post's michael goodwin on tuesday, trump seemed to deliberately place bannon at arm's length, suggesting his role as an adviser has been oversold and even appearing to threaten bannon's job. steve bannon remains president trump's chief strategist. photo: apgoodwin says he asked trump if he still has confidence in bannon, who is reportedly feuding with trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, jared kushner. and trump didn't exactly disabuse goodwin of the idea that bannon is embattled. in fact, he did quite the opposite."i like steve, but you have to remember he was not involved in ...

moore’s defeat in alabama could diminish bannon’s influence over trump


president trump and stephen k. bannon (carlos barria/reuters)president trump trusted stephen k. bannon's political instincts in alabama. bannon steered the president wrong.the question now is whether the breitbart news chairman's standing with trump will be permanently diminished, as a result.“i hope trump would trust bannon less after alabama,” said ben shapiro, a former breitbart editor who heads the conservative news site daily wire. “bannon doesn't have his finger on any pulse — he's a leech on the a-- of power, not a brilliant orchestrator of political events. ... why trump would trust bannon's political instincts is beyond me.”“trump's direct involvement in the race was almost certainly orchestrated by bannon, and you would expect trump, who cares more about winnin...






cracking up: what trump and bannon’s break means


the increasingly nasty breakup between donald trump and steve bannon could mark the first genuine rupture in the trumpist ranks, but so far the civil war on the right has been decidedly one-sided. bannon has been abandoned by many of his populist-nationalist media allies, who scurried to establish their fealty to the regime. perhaps worse for bannon, he has alienated his dark money patrons, the mercers, a breach that may cost him his job at breitbart. in his romantic self-regard, bannon is likely to think of himself as the robespierre of this trumpian revolution, who was ultimately destroyed by the forces he helped release. but bannon is reaping what he has sowed. for the last year, he imagined that he could control, shape and use donald trump as an empty vessel to fill wi...

with bannon back at breitbart, what will #war mean for the white house?


scott lucas, university of birminghamdid steve bannon jump or was he pushed? bannon's opponents spoke of a firing, while his allies - and bannon himself - said he had planned to resign for weeks. turns out both sides were right. but that is only the start of a tale in which the final chapters are not yet written.within hours of leaving his post, bannon was back as executive chairman of breitbart. staff at the right-wing publication, including senior editor joel pollak, had already declared "#war" on the white house as soon as their boss's departure was announced. a bannon friend said: "steve's unchained. fully unchained." another said: "it's now a democrat white house".at a staff meeting, bannon refined the blunt declarations. the line that trump himself would not be attacked was...






rabbi tweets photos of steve bannon's big board of plans


the world has now seen steve bannon’s big board. a rabbi visiting the white house on tuesday tweeted selfies with president trump’s right hand man — and exposed bannon’s infamous white board of white house plans. rabbi shmuley boteach — a contributor to breitbart, bannon’s former employer — tweeted two photos that unwittingly revealed bannon’s board in the background. the white house strategist’s whiteboard holds ominous status, with visitors noting that it is covered with grand campaign promises — which bannon checks off once they are accomplished.steve bannon actually wrote a shakespearean rap musical the two pics revealed dozens of bannon’s plans, mostly related to immigration, tax reform and healthcare. some of the visible notes included:...

why bannon parted company with trump – and how he'll weaponize breitbart


steve bannon left the white house amid a cloud of misconceptions.it’s been fascinating to watch some pundits say his departure will tilt the administration toward a more moderate path—charted by those bannon dismissed as “globalists”—while others say not much will change since there’s not a dime’s worth of difference between bannon and donald trump.in other words, he was the embodiment of everything trump’s critics dislike about his white house—up until the moment he left, when he was somehow irrelevant.that, at least, is debatable. some other media chatter about bannon—with notable exceptions by sophisticated reporters—is not. based on my white house reporting:bannon wasn’t fired because of his interview with the liberal american prospect. he did say all kinds of p...






what in the world was stephen bannon thinking? 3 theories.


conservatives are taking sides after president trump hit out at his former chief strategist stephen k. bannon for unflattering comments in a new book. (jenny starrs/the washington post)it has been about 24 hours since michael wolff's new book reported that stephen k. bannon accused donald trump jr. of treason, among a number of other brutal quotes. and despite thorough denunciations from the white house, bannon has yet to dispute any of it. in fact, he seems to be trying to make nice with trump.but why? why would bannon tell wolff things that would clearly alienate the  president, especially when bannon said today  that “nothing will ever come between us and president trump and his agenda.” why risk something, well, coming between you and that agenda?here are three theories.1. ban...

(carlos barria/reuters file)for arguably the first time in his presidency, president trump has signaled that he's ready to declare a war that could split his base. the white house denounced stephen k. bannon in a blistering statement wednesday and has now issued bannon a cease-and-desist letter. the idea of trump taking on bannon and his most loyal supporters at breitbart is a tantalizing one politically, especially given nearly every decision trump has made to date has been tailored to his supporters.but bannon's response suggests that war isn't coming — or at least that he's trying to avoid it.in his first comments since michael wolff's new book quoted bannon calling donald...

why bannon's revolt may wind up strengthening the establishment


steve bannon has always had a habit of mistaking his own agenda for donald trump’s. that flaw is responsible for bannon’s short and tumultuous career in government. he was let go from the west wing just hours after he provided a liberal media outlet with a blistering series of quotes undermining the president’s efforts to enlist china’s help in isolating north korea, thus abandoning bannon’s obsession with a glorious sino-american trade war. he wasn’t sabotaging trump, he reasoned. he was helping. bannon thought that he knew trump better than trump knew himself. following his ouster, bannon went about “helping” trump wherever he could. he returned to the helm of breitbart.com, where he declared “a season of war” targeting the president’s republican allies...

trump risks turning breitbart into an enemy by sidelining bannon

she's been thin, she's been fat. hear what this anorexic has to say about body p


when we try and think of body shaming, we usually picture an overweight person being called names or facing flak over being “lazy”. lately, we have witnessed a motion against this bullying as people with “undesirable” body-types have displayed love towards the person in the mirror. yet, we tend to ignore how body shaming continues for people with skinny bodies. a self-proclaimed ed (eating disorder) warrior, megan jayne crabbe, has set out to balance out the prevailing notions pertaining to a “normal” body. an anorexia survivor herself, megan challenges the common misconceptions- being thin isn’t always good and being fat is okay too.megan was diagnosed as an anorexic when she was 14. “you see, within 5 years of being on the planet, it was already ingrained in my mind that fat was the wors
