In August of 2015, FOX Noise hosted the first Republican “debate.” Less than ten minutes after it began, it was obvious that Roger Ailes, FOX president, and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, had conspired with Megyn Kelly to discredit the party’s leading candidate, Donald Trump.
Kelly began to attack Trump not on the issues, but accusations related to his personal life. Although the facts regarding Trump’s past and present did reveal an immoral and unqualified man, a real debate was now impossible. Back and forth bickering and personal attacks seemed never-ending. Then other passengers in the clown car chimed in. The evening devolved into a school yard brawl.
Priebus’ efforts backfired. The following day Trump’s poll numbers rose. Priebus began to amass a “never Trump” majority within the Republican Party. Although Trump was publicly denounced as a racist, a man without morals, and a man unfit to become the president, his poll numbers remained constant.
When the primaries began, Trump lost in Iowa to fake-Christian Ted Cruz; but that was the last time. He crushed his opponents.
Priebus reorganized and asked Republicans to throw their full support behind “little” Marco Rubio. After he lost to Trump by 20 points in his home state of Florida, he resigned from his campaign.
Next came the most hated man in Washington; Ted Cruz. But Trump dismissed him quickly.
However, Priebus’ plan to ‘dump Trump’ wasn’t over; he could defeat him at the convention. That didn’t happen.
Ever the hypocrite, Priebus now stood behind the worst candidate in history.
When Trump was illegitimately elected, it appeared strange that he selected Priebus as his chief of staff. This position is well-known as the second most powerful job in Washington. No one has the ‘president’s ear’ more than his ‘right hand man.’
I questioned his choice; Priebus had failed his party as its chairman for ten years. My conclusion was that it was a reward for assisting Trump in the final months of his campaign.
Then came an even stranger choice. Former head of the extreme right wing rag ‘Breitbart,’ and member of ‘Alt-Right,’ an openly white supremacist organization, Steve Bannon, was selected as Trump’s ‘senior adviser,’ and ‘chief strategist.’
In just a few short weeks we have learned that Bannon is in charge of all things in the White House.
Christopher Ruddy, CEO of Newsmax Media, told CNN’s Brian Stelter on “Reliable Sources” he thinks “there’s a lot of weakness coming out of the chief of staff.”
“I think Reince Priebus, good guy, well-intentioned, but he clearly doesn’t know how the federal agencies work,” said Ruddy. “He doesn’t have a real good system. He doesn’t know how the communications flow.”
Ruddy is a personal friend of Donald Trump. His statement confirms my evaluation of the White House hierarchy. Priebus was unqualified to be the Chairman of the RNC, and was totally unqualified to take control of the White House.
Bannon is in complete control. He is also making several key decisions for Trump. Bannon is setting a low standard for the morality of our nation. His position regarding minorities, Muslims, the LGBT community, and women are well-known.
If Bannon is the real president, not just the White House, but our nation is under the control of a man whose intention is the destruction of our America. He seeks a plutocracy controlled by a fascist government.
My fellow Americans, we are in great danger. Do not fall into the trap laid by the media; Trump cannot be accepted as our nation’s leader. He and his circle of sinners have ambitions, and they involve the destruction of our constitutional rights.
Join the revolution; became an activist; and get out the vote in 2018.
