Bannon is the one setting most US policy at the moment.

The Tweet is slightly inaccurate. Bannon is a member of the Principal's Committee of the NSC but the DNI and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs are only at those meetings sometimes.

Even w/ everything that's happened this week, not sure anything scares me more than DNI & Joint Chiefs kicked off the NSC PC, Bannon put on.

Note that Bannon has a higher status on the new NSC than the Director of National Intelligence and the Joint Chiefs Chairman.

This may the scariest news today. A white nationalist now is higher ranked on the National Security Council than intel or Joint Chiefs chair


This has Bannon's fingerprints all over it. Never forget that he's a racist and anti-semite.

His history at Briebart where he said he wanted it to be a home to the alt right.

Listen To Steve Bannon Defending The Racist Alt-Right One Week Before Joining Trump Campaign

He's a White Nationalist nihilist.

This is also pretty revealing.

Trump's chief strategist thinks too many tech CEOs are Asian?

Quote


The Washington Post unearthed a radio talk show recording of a conversation from last year between Bannon -- formerly the head of severely white-, right-wing Breitbart News -- and Trump when he was running for president.

Talk drifted to the subject of immigration. Trump mentioned that he wasn't in favor of sending home foreign students who come to the US to study.

"We have to be careful of that, Steve," said Trump. "You know, we have to keep our talented people in this country." He seemed to expect that Bannon would agree that foreign students were "our talented people."

Bannon appeared to demur.

"When two-thirds or three-quarters of the CEOs in Silicon Valley are from South Asia or from Asia, I think..." he began. He then offered this thought: "A country is more than an economy. We're a civic society."

Some might see the tiniest implication that if too many tech CEOs are from some part of Asia, civic society might be threatened. Disrupted, even.

So wanting to stop immigration from countries with failed governments, civil wars, and or outspoken hatred for America until a stronger vetting process can be put in place is racist now?

I guess I'm racist.

Wanting to agree with the Obama administrations assessment of the 7 countries ability and/or willingness to help us vet immigrants from their countries is racist?

I guess I'm racist.

Having provisions in place that take into account individual cases, which worked even on the first day is racissst?

I guess I'm racist.

And so are most of the people who love their country and think the immigration policies of their country should put their countries safety ahead of the libtard's feelz

What a common sense approach, ask the Uber-rich Muslim nations next door to take in the refugees.



Something not done before? I wonder why no one thought of this idea?

I wonder if we'll see any tweets from Trump in the morning calling her a no talent failed actress. Fun fact, her Father was a Billionaire with more money than Trump. Depending on how his estate was left she might have more money than Trump too which if he knows I'm sure will enrage him.

And yet none of the security establishment that you know... actually knows what "really" is going on were calling for these measures.

Oh look the whole line "it's not a ban", it's targeting radicals seems to be BS: https://twitter.com/...060143825666051 Just like the US is now going to do exxxxxxxxxtreme vetting, not like any? of the "muslim"-initiated attacks have been initiated by people who have come here post-9/11.

Wanting to be feel safe in your own country is rational. But if you are that paranoid how do you leave your house, drive a car (mow your lawn apparently)?

Clinton got pillaged for giving speeches to Wall Street / Goldman Sacks, Trump appointed their CEO to Treasury. All he's done is eliminate the middleman.

As for trade deals: "Believe me, we're going to have a lot of trade deals," Trump told a gathering of Republican lawmakers http://www.cbc.ca/ne...lphia-1.3953133 . So congrats... sure he killed the TPP but apparently the "master negotiator"* is all set for new trade deals.

Can you guys tell me who is the most racist of the Supreme Court picks The President is considering?

I figure this is the easiest way to know who's the best pick by who you guys hate the most.
