Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf: Steve Bannon

“The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while.” – Steve Bannon, New York Times interview 1-26-2017

I am sorry but how many days has Donald J. Trump been President? Oh yea, it will be one week tomorrow. And in those six days what have been the most pressing issues on our new President’s mind, the size of his inauguration crowd, “It was a huge crowd, a magnificent crowd. I haven’t seen such a crowd as big as this” and why he didn’t win the popular vote, “if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally”. Yup, I think that just about sums it up.

And now, after his poor old press secretary has done such a piss poor job of handling his bi-polar bosses lies, truth stretches, exaggerations, and alternative facts here comes the big bad wolf Steve Bannon to set the record straight.

Now I call the quote above an interview but if you read the article you will soon realize it is more a rant than a two-sided conversation. We are one week in, one week and only 207 more to go. The press is in the midst of a feeding frenzy which is fine with me provided that they keep their eye on all the balls that are being juggled in front them and don’t let one or two very important ones get away. What would those be? I don’t know, but I can assure you there is no one better at sleight of hand than Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway  (watch and learn) can talk for two hours straight without taking a breath and without answering any direct questions. She truly is the queen of doublespeak.

I get the sense that the modus operandi of this administration will be information overload, misdirection and baffle them with bullshit. We may get tired of watching, we definitely will get sick of listening, but don’t take your eyes off this circus act for one minute. Better still, write your Senators and your Congressman or woman and tell them to sleep with one eye open. We can’t afford to give the Trump administration the key to our hen houses. I like the way barbecue chicken taste and enjoy my Saturday morning omelets.

“Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.” – George Orwell, 1984

    Hopefully we all pay more attention to this administration than to any other, and take action like never before. America needs to save itself.
