Even more trouble on the horizon for one Steve Bannon: Report

A new report out Friday has a grim future in store for one Steve Bannon. According to several reports, federal investigators are now reportedly investigating a $300m media deal linked to the fraudster himself. The Wall Street Journal (warning: paywall) reports that the SEC and the FBI launched an investigation after investors for the so-called company claimed they didn't get verification for their investments. But somehow they managed to invest upwards of $300m. Now officials want to know why that is; how it happened, and what exactly it is that Bannon and Chinese fugitive Guo are doing. The company per documents is actually GTV Media Group (which has been discussed prior to this bombshell announcement.) Officials are investigating what some say was an outright scam from the ...

BYE BYE BANNON: Alt-Right knucklehead Steve Bannon OUT at the White House

WASHINGTON --   Confirming directly from the horse's mouth, The White House, has confirmed that today will be Steve Bannon's last day in the White House.  The resignation reportedly comes directly from Bannon himself, amid claims that he has deep seated racism and a responsibility in part for the Charlottesville riots that left one woman dead.

Donald Trump Jr’s relationship with Russian lawyer deepens

The controversy surrounding Donald Trump Jr's meeting with an equally controversial Russian lawyer has deepened. According to CNN,   the number of actual attendees has now apparently increased to just above eight. Initially, it was believed that only Jared Kushner;  Steve Bannon, and Donald Trump Jr attended the meeting.  Then, it suddenly jumped to three more. Now,  even more. CNN reports that a translator and a family representative were also at the meeting. A meeting that has since been downplayed by President Trump  who says his son is a "good person" and is entirely "innocent". Meanwhile, most aren't buying the claims that he only asked one question while meeting that lawyer in Manhattan.

What in the world is a “cuck”, Steve Bannon ‘s war in the WH explained

The Steve Bannon - Jared Kushner debacle in the WH is one for the history books. Bannon, an alt-right nationalist who believes in closed borders and "supremacy" is not happy with the "globalist" (his words of description) towards Jared Kushner.  With the announcement earlier this week that Kushner and his views had effectively helped boot Bannon from the NSC, such, came a slew of headlines suggesting  Bannon was "angry" and wanted to quit. The Atlantic brilliantly broke the dispute down citing that the differentiating views between the powers that be "are determining who will stay and who will go".  But, the dispute could have harrowing results on another big name in the White House: The Chief of Staff.  The Atlantic discovered that  The Chief of Staff and Banno...
Yes,  Steve Bannon wanted to quit and here’s why

Yes, Steve Bannon wanted to quit and here’s why

Reports surfaced earlier this week that Steve Bannon wanted to 'quit' if he was actually removed from the NSC (which he was).   The report was later denied by people close to the former NSC member and now we've learned a bit more into the situation. WH staffers close to the situation and the President exclusively tell The Daily News that "Bannon has a very strict and consistent point of view that aligned with the deadliest of ideas possible. He has this sort of alt-right mantra that would antagonize the most treacherous of ideas to come from the President.  He was removed ultimately because people felt his alt-right association and extreme views were a bad influence for the President, and, should not influence national security decisions in the Situation Room".  Initia...
