Steve Bannon

Mr. President, Steve Bannon Is Your Last Best Link With Your Base

Call the White House today at 202-456-1111 or contact President Trump through Twitter at @realDonaldTrump or @POTUS and tell him Steve Bannon's continued service is essential to keep the winning Trump coalition together.

Steve Bannon faces uncertain future in Trump White House

Sarah Westwood, Washington Examiner

Although Bannon has previously found himself at the center of internal power struggles over access and influence in the West Wing, people familiar with the situation say Bannon currently faces what could be the most serious challenge to his role so far thanks to Kelly's preference for McMaster and to the recent ouster of his closest internal ally, former chief of staff Reince Priebus.

Steve Bannon and Scott Pruitt beat Kushner, Tillerson and Ivanka on Paris Agreement

Sarah Westwood and W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

Trump aligned himself with the conservative critics of the Paris Agreement in the end, consistent with his campaign promises last year. This group includes free-market activists who disapprove of resolving environmental problems through heavy-handed government regulations, Republicans from energy-producing states and climate change skeptics. But in his remarks explaining his decision, the president said it all came down to "America first."

The President’s Gary Cohn Problem: The First Article In An Ongoing Series

When one sifts through all of the evidence and clues as to why the President’s economic and domestic policy agenda remain not only unfulfilled, but unarticulated, one problem keeps coming to the fore: The appointment of former Goldman Sachs President and Chief Operating Officer Gary Cohn to head the President’s National Economic Council.

Don’t Fall for Morning Joe’s Propaganda on Bannon

Chris Buskirk, American Greatness

Iowa Congressman Steve King had it right: “Steve Bannon is the lynchpin to your energized base.” This is not because Bannon is more important than the president—he’s not. It’s because the constant stream of media hits have made him representative of Trump’s battle to drain the swamp.

If Trump Loses Bannon, Trump Loses the Presidency

Robert Barnes, American Thinker

Should Trump ever lose Bannon entirely, Trump is a lame duck.  Some media suggest that Trump could replace Bannon with Jared Kushner. Jared Kushner is to Steve Bannon what Dan Quayle was to JFK. Lose Bannon, lose the country. Lose Bannon, lose the presidency. Trump needs to bet on Bannon, or it will be time to no longer bet on Trump.

War on Freedom Caucus is Really War with Trump’s Base

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Going to war with the Freedom Caucus is going to war with your base. You have to decide, Mr. President, whether you will align yourself with the leaders of the swamp -- or grassroots Americans.

What President Trump Doesn’t Get About the Freedom Caucus

What President Trump doesn’t seem to understand is that when establishment Republicans talk about “governing” and “legislating” what they really mean is growing government at a slightly slower pace or to benefit a different set of cronies than the Democrats would if they were in power.

CHQ Receives White House Briefing

My overall impression after the meeting was that the White House is very engaged and committed to pushing the President’s government reform and spending priorities. Whether the President pushes his priorities through a tweet storm or by turning on his legendary sales skills remains to be seen, but this isn’t the kind of "show vote" government that we are used to from Capitol Hill Republicans, this is real.

New Role For Conservatives: Operate As A Fourth Force

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
On tax reform, economic growth, reducing the size and scope of government and many other areas President Trump has indicated he wants to pass a bold conservative agenda. Let’s make it our job to be the “fourth force” that pushes him to the right and convinces him that to pass that agenda he must explicitly and actively move right and align himself with conservatives.

What's Missing From CPAC

President Trump’s team reported great beginnings for his conservative agenda to the thousands of conservatives assembled at CPAC, however, something was definitely missing.

Steve Bannon Is Right

“I want you to quote this,” President Trump’s senior White House strategist Steve Bannon told The New York Times. “The media here is the opposition party. They don’t understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States.”

Why Andrew Jackson Instead of Ronald Reagan?

President Donald Trump's choice of Andrew Jackson as his Oval Office muse shows President Trump knows his presidential history, and he’s chosen the right inspiration for the challenges that are before him.

Trump’s Administration Is More Conservative Than Reagan’s

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In my 55-years of involvement in the conservative movement at the national level, there’s never been a time when conservatives occupied more positions of influence and power than they do today – and that includes the election of Ronald Reagan and during the Reagan transition.

#DumpKelloggs: Cereal Maker Declares War On Conservatives

In response to Kellogg’s advertising boycott of Breitbart, the popular conservative website has launched its own counter-boycott of Kellogg’s urging its populist – conservative readers to boycott the mega-brand’s processed food products.

Tomorrow Let’s Give Thanks For The End Of The Beginning

This Thanksgiving, perhaps most importantly of all, we should give thanks for the patriotic Americans, who turned-out in their millions to take their country back from the anti-constitutional forces that have been let loose for the past eight years.

The Steve Bannon Bogeyman

Roger Kimball, PJ Media

Why are the anti-Trumpers right to attack Steve Bannon? Because he is their worst nightmare. He is a nightmare not only for Democrats who supported Hillary, but also for those renegade Republicans who signed up for the #NeverTrump suicide mission. Steve is more intelligent than they are. He also commands formidable street smarts and political savvy. In short, he is a one-man, industrial-strength swamp-draining apparatus.

Why the Big Lie About Steve Bannon?

David P. Goldman, PJ Media

We have learned from the sewage-storm directed at Bannon that the Establishment plays dirty, and that the formerly Republican #NeverTrumpers aren't just misguided ideologues, but also yellow-bellied, gutter-crawling, backstabbing, bushwhacking liars. Hell hath no fury like a self-designated elite scorned.

Trump Staff Shift Elevates GOP Leaders' Archenemy

Caitlin Huey-Burns & Rebecca Berg, RCP

In hiring Breitbart News chief Stephen Bannon as chief executive of his campaign, Trump has plainly rejected calls within the party to temper his controversial approach in order to broaden support in the general election. With Bannon, Trump is instead embracing the tactics, style and nationalist/populist themes that propelled him to victory in the primaries.
