ZERO TOLERANCE- Steven Bannon Interview

ZERO TOLERANCE- Steven Bannon Interview


[Music] but now let’s go to you Breitbart coming here coming out of out of Los Angeles coming to Washington with what kind of a plan what kind of an idea what was Breitbart in Los Angeles and what does Breitbart become in Washington what Andrew was had been matt drudge editor he’d been one of the launch editors for Arianna Huffington and The Huffington Post the always had a vision of what a new site could be at the time he was a blog right then kind of people posted stuff that were citizen journalists Andrew had this big vision of what a real news site could be we were the blog kind of for the tea party this tea party energy you know right after the financial collapse in the spring of the next year in fact on Rick Santelli had this rant this very famous ramped that took place when first tarp thing was being talked about and he was basically saying hey all the working-class people are paying for this right that rant initiated these group of kind of disparate people to have a meeting and basically have people come out on April 15th on tax day April 15th of 2009 that was the beginning of the Tea Party and Andrew saw very quickly as I saw that there was this real populist power in this that there was this was something totally different this wasn’t this was not standard Republican Party this was a whole new deal and so we started covering that and Breitbart be kind of came the blog site for that Andrew wanted to a new site we were able to raise some money and in 2011 we closed on the money and we decided that the center gravity of our political coverage had to be in Washington DC and we released this house right in back of the Supreme Court and we called it the Breitbart embassy and the reason was we were an embassy in a foreign capital right because everybody told us I mean we were lectured by guys saying you’re not gonna have any access you don’t have to play the game to get access and we can’t said hey we’re gonna kick down doors how about this we’re gonna be totally different and so we called this place the embassy for the simple reason that we you know we thought we were in an embassy in a foreign capital that this was owned and run by the permanent political class and so a handful of people like Peter Schweitzer in others Matt Boyle in Andrew we started this new site now unfortunately Andrew died tragically you know four days before the site was abie to be launched he was working 20 hours a day to build the site to perfect it he had these he was that he was a quite a visionary when it came to new media and how people access to information and so the whole site you see today was really his creation he created every component piece of it including how news would flow through the system how we promoted things etc and so that was this kind of rowdy and remember the woman one thing we the decision we made very fundamentally and I kind of was I think a big influence on Andrew on this I said look at aking Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama we’re so far removed from having any influence over that because this time we’re a very small site I said we’re the populists you know kind of economic nationalist part of this let’s attack the real enemy and the real enemy is the Republican establishment what we’re gonna do is just go after the house leaders share prayer go through the mission picasa guards are the donors we’re just going to go hard and kind of this this this this kind of paul ryan philosophy why don’t you think Boehner and Cantor were vulnerable because they were phoner because there’s a huge disconnect remember they reported one thing is Democrats they have lined up they have actually at least here recently donors in their in their base kind of line up the Republican Party is totally dysfunctional it’s essentially a working-class party the votes all come from working-class are lower middle class people predominantly right and it doesn’t represent their interest this book written by a guy called you know what’s the matter with Kansas where he kind of walks to have the ekiden the donor class the singers in the coax these kind of libertarians had this entirely different concept this kind of Austrian School of Economics concept that the the political apparatus remember the consulting class the political class around it and the donors all line up perfectly unfortunately you’ve got a working class party that for instance trade you know math illegal immigration which the chamber commerce pushes all the time in more legal immigration and the trade are just two sides of the same coin right the two sides of the same coin it’s suppression of workers wages ok mass illegal immigration is to flood the zone against predominantly black and Hispanic working class so that you’ve got unlimited you know unlimited labor pool and you can keep wages down for higher margins the the immigration and the h-1b visas are the same thing in the tech area that you don’t have to hire American citizens I can do it with these visas to increase margins trade is the same thing trade is just you’re competing against foreign labor in foreign countries unfairly and so all of it is to suppress workers wages and have higher margins therefore higher stock prices therefore more more wealth of which the workers don’t own any piece of and so our thesis was the not just the cultural stuff but the economic stuff and you have an ability to reform this Republican party and make it a true populist entity but they weren’t gonna let that happen they were going to resist that and almost they did and we took him down that we took down Cantor remember we took down Cantor with Dave brat we took the first time in the history of the Republic that a sitting majority leader had ever been beaten remember he was beaten in a primary that Canada was up here in DC on the day of the primary and schlepped out of there last night Fox News and they came on last night demon know Dave brats name this was unknown and we had worked it with Laura Ingraham I mean we had been all Breitbart have been all over this we had Dave brat on our radio show I think every week for the 10 weeks run up to the election we saw real vulnerability that was coming I definitely know what’s coming I but that was also having to be my home district but I could feel it I knew that that a guy like Brackett they were very weak they were very weak they didn’t have a graphs and this tea party revolt was picking up seen of them that you had you had the you had the huge Tea Party revolt in 2010 which we won 62 seats the Republican Party didn’t see that coming that was all grassroots oriented which played out over time remember today the 2000 really Obama’s Oh 8 in in particularly the primaries in the 2010 I think change American politics pretty fundamentally because the concept got to be mobilization versus persuasion I don’t believe we weren’t living an era of persuasion every more people are so saturated with this all day long they kind of know where they come out he just got a motivate him to get out there and vote you got a motivate him to go door to door so the oh eight Obama primary that completely caught Clinton by surprise yeah was all about mobilization the 2010 Tea Party particularly the house part of it that was absolutely you know the biggest in the history I think since the Great Depression 1932 was about mobilization that’s why Romney didn’t want to have anything to do with it at 12 right he washed his hands of it and that’s why in this very room in January 2013 they had this huge this huge controversy between the Republican Party did the autopsy that said all the reason that the reason that Romney lost was because we didn’t reach out to the Hispanic community we didn’t talk about daca we didn’t talk about you know open borders immigration policy and a young guy named Steven Miller who was on the staff you’ve been with Michele Bachmann for the Tea Party revolt we were very close to Stephen Miller and Jeff Sessions and myself had a dinner in this very room at the basically the same week that Rupert Murdoch and and Roger Ailes had this dinner with Schumer and in Rubio in New York to talk about the gang of eight bill and we just came down and looked at this there was a lawyer at Hunt and Williams in Richmond that wrote a three-part piece I believe it was for Real Clear Politics his name is Sean trendy he looked at the same analysis coming out of 2012 which remember all the donors thought Romney was going to win in a landslide he looked at the same thing as said the inability of the Republican Party to connect with working-class voters is the single biggest reason that they’re not they’re not winning and that’s four sessions as I talked about we’re gonna take trade from number 100 right it’s not an issue the whole Republican Party’s got this fetish on free trade they’re like automatons Oh free trade free trade free trade which is a radical idea particularly when you’re against a mercantilist opponent like China so we’re gonna make trade from number 100 to number two more to take immigration we’re about number three to number one the one and two issues will be immigration and and that will be focused on workers right and we’re gonna remake the Republican Party in fact I absolutely but that’s like the UH the anti autopsy 100 you’ve sent out autopsy autopsy in a total rights later to his face it was a total joke and another donor driven lie okay no statistics in the victory in 2016 showed that knows and by the way the the all the guys in the verticals the but of jeb Bush’s and the Marco Rubio’s and all these other guys chris Christie although all the geniuses and their staffs all bought into the autopsy remember they thought we were crazy you know we had Palin in eighth and hope that she had run in twelve and she just you know she did it just didn’t work out I actually worked with Lou Dobbs and try to get Lou Dobbs to run in twelve as a populist because Lou Dobbs economic ideas on his TV show all the time particularly China and immigration and trade in Lou Dobbs for a host of reasons didn’t do it and and here I actually tried to talk sessions in the donut I told sessions just like I told Palin you’re not going to be President United States but remember if we win the primary and you will win the primary you control the Republican apparatus you take over the RNC for the whole next cycle you could turn the RNC you can turn the Republican Party into a worker based party the goal is to get control of the party you’re not going to win the presidency against this that’ll take time and in sessions goes I remember he said while he was about five hours we walked down those front steps and he said he turns to me he goes it’s not me I’m not gonna do it he says but our guy will come along we’ll find our guy in that guy a couple of years later turned out to be Donald Trump Trump comes up and really the key moment is coming down the escalator when Trump at the top of the escalator if you go back and look at the polling I think Trump was in seventh place right at the bottom of the escalator in the speech when in particularly when the media bites and I’m sitting there watching we have five people up at Trump Tower we have Boyle leading an entire team we got wall-to-wall coverage and in the speech when he starts going on to not just the immigration part in trade which nobody’s ever talked about but he starts doing the over-the-top stuff and I go I said you watch they’re gonna bite hard and they’re gonna bite hard and blow this off I’m sitting there watching this thing on TV when he starts talking about the Mexican rapists everything like that I go oh my god I said this is I said he just buried everything they’re gonna go not CNN is literally going to broadcast 24 hours a day by that but he goes to Iowa I think that night it’s all they talk about he goes from number seven he’s at one it never looks back the next day polling Trump’s going to one in fact I think it’s the next day the day after Don Lemon has him on for the most classic Trump interview in human history lemon sitting there hammering it you got to show us some facts you got to show some fashion Trump gets the TV it’s a it’s a phone interview Trump goes Don done somebody’s doing the raping right it’s just so but it was the mainstream media that catapulted Trump from because remember when people at the top of the escalator nobody still thought even though he had filed his financial report right right which in hindsight you know is the financial report but it nobody thought that sir they thought was a marketing ploy to get a better deal at The Apprentice etc the mainstream media catapulted him to the number one and then it was within 30 days we had the Fox News the first on August 1st I think it was was the was the debate when Fox News when Murdoch in ales or particularly Murdoch inhales from being the part of the bush apparatus decided they were gonna kneecap Donald Trump right out of the box and that’s what megyn kelly they went through his Twitter feed they went through all the Apprentice tapes they went through everything and came out and did a hit like the left would do on somebody and that’s when all war broke out that’s when it that’s when Breitbart that’s when you had to choose sides right in the war with a war was Fox and all the conservative media National Review Weekly Standard the Republican the basically it’s it’s a racket okay it’s a racket because the people are over here the voters are focused on illegal immigration trade deals jobs you know why income inequality where’s my pay raise basic nuts and bolts stuff like that people the sovereignty of the country the National Review weekly standard neoliberal neo-cons are kind of a doughnut beck-and-call the donors it’s a total disconnect on foreign policy and remember one of the powers of Trump and the basic thing is that America is in decline and the elites are okay with that this is about manage decline so whether it’s health care the southern border NATO China Iran picot right the education system we’re in manage decline and the elites are fine with that in what’s looked as the Republican elites are okay because they’re kind of the junior partner in the punching bag of Obama and these progressive Democrats and they don’t doing they kind of agree with them at the end they remember after 2014 the reason Obama becomes come of a hero to the Breitbart staff we call him in an honorary honey badger and we were because we we’re humping this thing in 14 he bola the border and all sudden he gets smoked in the midterm elections okay what does he do he calls the press conference for the next day Prescott everybody shows up this is the shellacking he gets shellacked right he loses the Senate he shows back up he gets smoked he calls a press conference and all CNN and everybody near times is he gonna listen with the people say his country go in a different direction Obama gonna listen he gets up there and goes okay guys here’s that is I’m president I states and you’re not because here’s 10 executive orders I’m gonna sign immediately and by the way you know that daca thing I got a dot I’m an the parents onto it how do you like that I’m sitting going this guy’s my role model I said he just got smoked and he comes out and hits you right in the mouth this is a leader remember Boehner collapses we get the Omnibus everything we fought for we just won we just won and Boehner does this omnis bill gives me Planned Parenthood it gives him daca everything is wanted and more that’s we realized the Republican apparatus is the Washington Generals to their Harlem Globetrotters right does it you’re just set to lose and so but that is this thing that builds up and so when you get to the fox situation fox has chosen aside there it’s so evident in that in that debate that they’re there to kneecap donald trump okay they’re there to take him out and that’s when we go okay this so we run twenty stories on megyn kelly I get Tony Lee and Matt Boyle my two hammers they go right after megyn kelly we’re gonna alinsky her right we’re gonna cut her out from the collar up from the herd and just hit her non-stop and after about 48 hours I get a call from a also who was kind of a mentor but remember in building Breitbart I never allowed anybody a Breitbart to go on fox ever I went on a couple times without film because National Review rich Lowry Tucker across the time Daily Caller none of those guys existed unless they were on Fox all their own Fox their guys are on Fox their subsidiary Fox they’re just there when when when Ailes calls him up they got a line up in a certain way and this was the payoff he calls off they’re all got a line up and back in the megyn kelly we’re independent we don’t need element heels financially they’re gonna do anything for me right so we’ve never had anybody I was never on Fox none of our reporters are there Fox if you want to come here and get some story and get a dredged link and go on Fox you’re in the wrong line of work because it not gonna happen we’re Breitbart and we got our own point of view we’re gonna do it our own way and Tolan this is where it came down to Oliver s time line up with those with anti Trump and India’s calls me up and said you got to knock off these stories he she’s crying she’s all obsessed she’s getting death threats echo sounds like a personal problem I said when I’m backing off we’re gonna we’re gonna put more stories up tomorrow he goes you gotta come what do you guys you guys he says no you’re not going to pull with the left pulls this is the typical drive-by you are going to a guy’s Twitter you go into 14 years of a show and this is we’re gonna come up with as Rosie O’Donnell it doesn’t roll like that okay we’re all in now okay and if you don’t like it that’s your problem because I don’t owe you anything you have no bearing whatsoever on how we do what were the stakes for you Steve at that moment what the stakes were the countries of the countries to me it’s about the country do you finally have somebody in Trump that is now giving voice to kind of this voiceless working class and lower middle class has had no representation they’ve been voting for Republicans that work exactly against their economic interest look at these trade deals you know you have all this theory of free markets the free market these free markets against the mercantilism is destroying the manufacturing base of the country right you had these guys or Chamber of Commerce that look the state of Texas is controlled by Republicans you know you have a Republican why can’t just shut down why can’t you shut down the border the reason is they want the labor the Republican Party donors want the cheap labor that’s the point so you finally have a guy that’s speaking in a non-political vernacular and you can tell is connecting with people already in the rallies I said this is our guy he’s a very imperfect instrument but he’s an armor-piercing shell okay and here’s the other thing they’re scared to death gets in the Oval Office he sits down and the weight of it all the responsibility to heal the inclusion moment or the division moment or the fightback moment and everybody that he’s gonna pivot he has to pivot what he said he didn’t admit because the media doesn’t remember them the mainstream media is not in on the joke here’s the joke the American elite have allowed the nation to decline they are in to manage decline and this is not about political party this is the permanent political class okay it sponsorship on Wall Street and in corporate America they have this kind of this political apparatus down in Washington but they are in manage decline – unacceptable outcomes – average citizens manage decline for unacceptable outcomes to average citizens because they don’t have to bear the brunt of it they don’t bear the brunt of the health care system and collapse they don’t bear the brunt of the education system and collapse they’re taken care of to Wed they bring about the largest financial collapse in the country and they’re better off in ten years why would you like this system the system is working great for them is not manage decline for them they’re making more money in the way down than they made on the way up and so that’s where Trump is a rallying cry of that remember the lead-up to the the inauguration is we’re going to hit the deckplates runnin with these executive orders we’ve got this whole system that that Miller has gone through tell me about that when outside and outside an outside organization had done this theoretical analysis to show that every executive order that was still around from Obama and from bush and we had this whole thing we had a whole Tiger team of White House the White House Council guys the deconstruction administrative State which is a huge element member you got two forms of populism you have right-wing populism you have left wing populism right wing populism is about deconstruction administrative state Bernie Sanders and AOC is about more inclusion of the state we’re both populist but they want more state intervention we want less in fact we want to start to take apart certain parts of the apparatus and and so that whole thing is is basically focused on the deconstruction of the of the administrative state at the same time saying hey we’re nationalists this is about the nation the nation’s concerns have to come have to come forward we had in the first hundred days every day we’re going to be hitting with either three executive orders or whatever number one is that the Democratic Party shattered they don’t know if they’re coming or going right they got one group that’s doing identity politics and other groups that’s the Clinton centrist that I said we’ve broken them right now they have no idea they’re gonna have their own internal civil war right they’ll keep them occupied for a while so what we’ve got to do is just hit hit hit and keep its momentum momentum momentum that the the opposition party is the media in the media can only because they’re dumb and they’re lazy they can only focus on one thing at a time and the one thing they’ll mainly focus on is either they do the horse race or once the horse race who’s ins who’s out it’s like the high school who the cool kids in the cafeteria right because it’s easy it’s the reason they do the horse race stuff all the time right and they won’t do the basic what are the core things are going on in the country I said all we have to do is flood the zone every day we hit them with three things they’ll bite on one and we’ll get all of our stuff done bang bang bang these guys will never we’ll never be able to recover but we got to start with muzzle velocity so it’s got to start it’s got a hammer it’s got a muzzle velocity you got it when you get anything in life remember the house is five to seven against right to get something gut done you’ve got to go through these certain stages of momentum and keep forcing it and so otherwise just pure inertia right are the loss of energy so we’ll stop though that with the travel ban and lots of other things that came just the chaos that appeared to be chaos that wasn’t apparently chaos did you lose some that you might lose many of them but they you say lose of the the correct me if I’m wrong didn’t the Supreme Court of these United States say that the travel ban as written and by the way they would have said the first travel ban was 100% constitutional is that not just a fact yes it is okay we knew the travel ban was bulletproof okay also that look at the other Yeo’s we did that day the other yo is really what would galvanize us and everything about about border enforcement and about tying together all the laws are out there and giving Kelly – momentum to go do it so no I did the the and the travel ban have been worked on from remember this is something that Miller started working on in early November this was all pushed through the interagency process here’s the thing that’s so funny about the media every time you do an executive order you have to get a basically a legal opinion the office of legal counsel of the DOJ has to basically give you a sign off thing that this thing is constitutional otherwise you just have guys doing executive orders all the time there is a governor is a governor unit to the system that governing unit is the office of legal counsel telling you can actually do this or not so we we were we were thought we on very strong grounds constitutionally and operationally we thought we’re in strong grounds to it’s another thing I would say is that you know knock on wood but there hasn’t been a terrorist attack there has not been a terrorist attack since the extreme vetting went in remember Trump and to his credit wanted to stick with the original the backing off of the original was because of literally mattes and other people about Iraq being an ally and in in the in the war to take down to physical Caliphate of Isis and there was some you know some changes to that but President Trump from the very beginning goes no I’ve done the analysis I’ve a do you guys want me through it I signed this thing originally I’m sticking with this the Supreme Court will eventually back us up after we get out of this crazy ninth district this is what I’m gonna stick with it was a staff that went back the people kind of blinked right because you’ve got some people in the White House that are a little more sensitive than other people right some people blinked and he we got the second version the second version was proved constitutional after all the all the all the you know all the thing and it’s been a very effective that’s nothing it’s been a very effective process you hit them right away at the Pentagon yes yes I think a collective idea the way to do it because it was about national security the way to do it was to do it at the Pentagon actually the interesting thing I think the more powerful of the two of the two that day was the second EO they’re really organized everything of all the different laws of country put it on one document signed by EEO that empowered the department homeland security in the Attorney General actually to start enforcing to enforcing the don’t need to change one immigration law on the books they’re all there right you just need to start enforcing them and remember general Kelly was not an ideologue like Stephen Miller myself and others he was a guy says hey if it’s the law of the land I’m gonna enforce the law this gave him that this just brought into high relief this and I think was only the LA Times that that weekend LA Times actually wrote the article I thoughts of smartest they said hey every Sunday’s travel ban actually when that has much bigger implications is this other one so no but my point is that every day we were hitting you know we’re gonna hit him with additional stuff and after that it started you could tell in the White House we had the two camps start to develop the more globalist you know establishment camp and more of the kind of disruptors populist nationalist camp and then everything he eventually became a knife fight shortly thereafter when did you know you were in the knife fight the first wake-up call is when everybody didn’t say on the on the victory address oh yeah this is amazing this is great why don’t we do this it was kind of yeah and he said no no no no this is like a trump rally speech you know and it was all we should bring the country together and to me look there’s times for that in his times not for that okay we didn’t we didn’t win an election to bring the country together he won an election to basically come after the permanent political class and the elite in this country and hold them accountable for what they’ve done and here’s what they’ve done okay they’ve then taken off the backs of the taxpayer the little guy and they saved themselves with this explosion of the balance sheet of the Federal Reserve which is just free money for them they’ve destroyed the pension programs you’ve destroyed this ability to save nobody owns me they have a neo futile istic system yes it’s not time to bring the country together it’s time to take on the elites in this country take the torch to him hit him with a blowtorch and that’s what the Trump and look my only time in the White House the only thing I and I never apologize but the one thing I look back in hindsight I wasn’t tough and strong enough we should have been much harder okay we should I should have fought harder for some of the things I’m saying it compromised on but I said okay if that’s why it’s got to be I should I should have been tougher this country has a massive problem and now you’re seeing it and what I told the donors I said you may hate my guts okay and it because remember in the Oval Office I’m the guy arguing for a 44 percent tax on every dollar all income over 5 million bucks because I told the dotted donors I said if we don’t get this thing sorted you’re gonna have a left wing populism and they’re not coming for your income they’re coming for your assets ok it’s gonna be just like you’re you know I’ve told these donors that you gotta understand something we have to make fundamental changes to this neo feudalistic system people have to start to get ownership they have to get ownership in the companies they have to get ownership in real estate incomes have to start to rise The Wall Street Journal can’t go through meltdown when income and wages starting to rise to you know inflation coming back you know incomes rising so there has to be fundamental change and so I knew right away that something is going on there were all kind of knife fights during the transition but it really got ugly after about the second weekend there and it really started getting ugly not about immigration that they were ugly the biggest fights were about China and trade and that’s because reason is we had so many Wall Street guys and look I’ve worked at Goldman Sachs we had Goldman Sachs guys in there who are basically the IR department the investors were Goldman Sachs and Wall Street is the Investor Relations partner the you know for the Chinese the Chinese CCP this radical cadre that runs China this is not about the Chinese people there’s about a radical cadre that runs the Chinese Communist Party that has a totalitarian mercantilist system that is incompatible incompatible with the system we have in the West one side will win on one side will lose so very early on in the first couple of weeks of the administration this confrontation with China s economic war became the most explosive thing is for all the knife fights came but all the McMaster stuff the Cohen stuff minuchin myself Jared you the the Popat the Nationalists and the globalist divide was because of that and then then many many other issues whether it’s you know getting putting stuff into super cars remember Obama and Bush the the the the globalist support this kind of they turned the military into kind of this humanitarian Expeditionary Force right they want to be everywhere sticking their nose in everybody’s business they’re just dying to get up in a Syria series a place they got to get up into because the Russians are in Syria right and my point is hey American foreign policy for 50 years has had one thing in the Middle East keep Russia out okay and Obama’s a match and carries whatever they do with Iran Russia got a foothold in the Middle East well you ain’t gonna get him out of there okay it’s just not going to happen and so anything that you’re doing get up there they want to get it on with Russia they are they are maniacally focused on Russia a country with a economy smaller than New York State there’s in a total demographic death well that doesn’t make anything that has it wouldn’t exist if Germany in these countries in Europe wouldn’t do natural gas deals with them yet we have an existential threat the greatest existential threat we’ve ever had in the country’s history is this totalitarian mercantilist society in China which has one belt one road made in China 2025 and 5g roll-out converging to take away advanced manufacturing in perpetuity and yet you have the corporatist and he have Wall Street who have all made money remember the decline of America is initially linked to the shipping of its manufacturing base to China it’s the wall street faction this is what Donald Trump understood in 2010 Donald Trump’s Donald Trump today when he goes and speaks about China you could literally take it from what he said in 2010 he understood the facts of the case then and it’s been the big is the biggest thing we’ve done as a government is in two years we now are confronted China in it the true economic war they’ve been running on us that is the single big one history looks back with this thing all the other Twitter madness everything that they will look at the signal and the noise and the signal is a great power struggle as we personified or manifested in the first national security document that ever came out of the the net first national security plan that came out in December of 2017 said global radical jihad is a problem it’s a containable problem here’s how we’re containing it now the two great threats of the country are it’s a great power struggle and they put Russia in there but it’s basically China has gone from a strategic partner to a strategic competitor right and then today you’re seeing the Secretary of Defense say today we got three issues China China China that is what Trump reorient in it from the very first days administration the nastiest nastiest fights by an order of magnitude were about trade and about this engagement with China the story of I know you know sessions very well and really closely collaborated on the immigration stuff for Breitbart the story that the day that sessions and Trump are in the Oval Office in here that mothers been picked and the president by all accounts loses it on on whether it’s true or not loses it on sessions sessions goes to the car as in tears and resigns that he’s brought back up by rights I guess and you talk to sessions yeah with rights take me in their Canyon yeah I think we got sessions back we couldn’t have sessions resigning so we got sessions back and and you know talked to him and realized it just put the you know don’t let’s not do anything in haste what kind of shape was he in well I think he was I think he’d had better days right I think he’s you know he’s kind of an unflappable guy really when you see him he’s very solid you know and really the driving force that this kind of populist revolt for many many years for Trump came on a thing is so I’m not just fond of him I really consider him a mentor in a lot of regards and and I realized many conservatives are very upset because and even I was he did not seem to be very focused on Hillary Clinton or uranium one and he’s just a it’s just the way he is you just got to take it the way it is and I did pull him off to the side into my into the into the war room and we talked and I said is there any doubt in your mind I said you were there from beginning I said you were very first guy infected in this very room I paced up and down for two hours on the phone with him where he’s an airport in Memphis in an SUV waiting for Trump to show up where that day they were go down to northern Alabama and he was going to endorse him on a stage and what sessions told me says you don’t stand Steve this is I’m never coming back from this he says the establishment will come they hate this guy so much that this will and although I’m kind of outside this immigration and the trade stuff I’m hammer them all the time this will be looked at as I’m a traitor and and you know you don’t come back from this so it see that we got to win or you know my political career is over and and I said we’re gonna win this I said this is a huge endorsement you know I think was right before Super Tuesday and and so he was there from the very beginning and so I just came in and I said I said I got question you were there from the beginning he saw the whole thing you rode shotgun with me the entire time he was chef I says any doubt in your mind that this was divine providence that put us here right that this just didn’t happen that this something something’s worked here because he’s a very imperfect instrument but we’re here and what you’re doing in immigration what you’re doing on on to counterterrorism everything that you’re doing the real work that you’re doing which sessions in middle and these guys were on fire about getting stuff done the deconstruction administrators say all of that all the real work that we would have never been able to do it unless we won and we won there was something that was there and that’s why we shocked everybody I said there’s any doubt in your mind goes no doubt I said you’re sure it’s no doubt he says no doubt I said and you’re never gonna quit he says I will never quit I go no matter how bad it gets because I’ll never quit I’ll go find I just wanted to make sure it sink just make sure we’re in sync and and that’s why I knew he was going to hang in there and he had some he had some very very very tough days so we’re in the summer of 2017 yes the president is waffling on Daka you recognize that he’s talking in press conference is about feeling for the kids he knows kids he’s got kids himself you’re concerned you call Kris Kobach and you guys have a plan can you tell me about yeah I don’t know if I would call waffling look the president if you go back and look at the president Trump candidate Trump citizen Trump you know he’s always and he looks at this I think holistically right not just from a policy perspective and this has followed him from the time he was a private citizen so he is on anything on immigration on the wall on asylum on you know gaming the system he’s always had you know a more holistic I think ID or concept than some way I would say would are said to be the immigration hardliners are people that think that we have to you know control our sovereignty and also protect our low-skilled workers particularly Hispanic and African American what Kobuk because Chris is I think considered the top lawyer in the immigration debate on our side of the football and so it was decided that he was going to talk to certain attorney generals in the spring of 17 particularly Louisiana and maybe Texas teaming together so you go to the Fifth Circuit and actually bring something up on daca and get it into the court system to ultimately prove that’s obviously unconstitutional what happened is I think that Texas Attorney General wrote a letter to Jeff Sessions and said this is essentially what we’re going to do sessions and when you say waffling the president a lot of times he’s thinking through his policy and getting feedback remember he is a marketer and he’s trying to figure out in his mind what is the right way to go and like I said if you talked to Stephen Miller or Jeff Sessions or myself people have been with the president you know for for even before the campaign but have been people that talk to him about immigration for years lou dobbs you would see that this is one that unless he’s ambivalent but he’s always trying to think through a more what I would call holistic solution than some of the immigration hardliners and what sessions did is then gave a pretty important speech in the fall of 2017 at the same time all these debates were going on at the budget and debt ceiling at Daka was part of that and said that essentially it was unconstitutional and they were going to go forward Kelly then came out in the I think 2018 early 2018 so we’re going to phase it out which was from the hard-liners perspective not what we wanted we wanted to be more aggressive than that certain progressive liberal left-wing groups then went to court it’s in the court system today and so daca is one that I think is emblematic quite frankly about a lot of the ambivalence throughout the entire country on certain issues of immigration did they help did that suit help pressure things not pressure I think what it was is it brought in high relief you know people have argued for a long time that what President Obama did was unconstitutional and that this should be taken care of and then dealt and then deal with the situation once you prove it’s unconstitutional I think what Kovac and the attorney generals want to do was to get this up at the at the right level and let’s get on with it let’s quit having all this kind of disparate movements and I think that’s why the Texas AG took the lead wrote a very powerful letter really put the Attorney General on notice Jeff session obviously being a hard line on immigration came out with his speech which i think was a pretty seminal speech at the time in the fall of 2017 and I think this is one of the benefits of Trump’s presidency is that it brought you know all this stuff had kind of been going in different directions and things were never really brought to conclusion or at least brought to the venue where you could determine and make some determination I think that that was I thought it was a big help and quite frankly is what we intended to have done very early on so let me now jump to January 9th and January 11th this is 18 this is the White House meeting where there’s a bipartisan group that’s come over from the hill that’s now meeting the Cabinet Room it’s being broadcast on CNN I’m curious to know where you are around this time because looks in that meeting like the president’s about to agree to do a clean DREAM Act or daca deal Kevin McCarthy has to kind of pull them back right right so there’s that and then there’s a day and on the 11th president calls Durbin and Graham from the hill they’re on their way over to the White House because he wants to sign something that’s what he’s told them they get there and there it’s a group of hardliners represented good Lots there senator Cotton’s there help me understand what’s changed what’s going on in these two days yeah well I once again I think this is it shows that how the president’s trying to think through this remember Durbin in Graham just don’t appear in January of 18 in the Roosevelt Room they are in the spring of 17 one of the reasons that Kovac is kind of brought into the mix and we start talking to the Attorney General’s there is a huge movement behind the scenes in the spring of 17 with led by Durbin and and Graham in certain elements certain more progressive elements in the White House of in fact this is where general Kelley is essentially jumped at a hearing and said hey you know about this doctor thing we’re way down the road and Kelley has those absolutely nothing about it general Kelley is so upset that he’s saying hey done forms the chief of staff Reince Priebus and others right maybe some of the progressive elements working with Durbin and Gramp this can’t happen again if you’re gonna start talking about daca you know this is my purview this is in my vertical I got to be in the loop so the the the the the Durbin Graham thing is from almost the beginning of the ministration you have this you know and I wouldn’t say it was kind of the moderate element of the Republican Party the Republican establishment apparatus that is to me very open borders and very much almost ideologically tied to the left and a large extent to give some happy talk about border security but they’re very inclined to agree and I think in January you start to see this play out you know Kelly gets involved there’s going to be this decrease in daca that’s what comes out of this but those two elements and here’s what’s interesting you call good lot in cotton or good lap particularly hardliners from the hard-liners perspective they’re you know they’re Muppets so but that is the voices you’re hearing and president Trump is is he that you know it’s a Socratic process you know he’s thinking this through as he goes along remember undock us particularly where he’s very hard line on the wall he’s very hard line on Asylum you know many of these things like birthright citizenship today about the ability to to go on welfare immediately public services you know President Trump is extremely has has his default position it’s tough on Dhaka it’s the one that he’s I would say ambivalent on and and and searching for an answer that he thinks is right we’re searching for a solution that fits Donald Trump and I’ve always respected that and I was very open about hey here’s and I’ve always said and one of the reasons I seem to take you know sometimes extreme positions on issues that’s how you can get to compromise if you take these extreme issues positions and you identify it clearly of what it is in the trade-offs that allows people room to actually have a discussion and a debate internally but Jenny or January 18 will go to and I think is one that and and so the reason I think things have dragged on to date I think the progressive groups went to court right after that and we’re still don’t have the clarity on daca but if they get back to sort of the the early immigration work that you and sessions and Miller were involved in and know so well when you’re watching the meeting on the ninth are you worried are you freaking out no I’m not freaking out but it’s it’s part of the process you just have to you just have to you just have to you just have to work the program somebody’s got to get in there you know we have to get Stephen the these things are going to happen they happen on other issues – it’s happening happens on national security what people wanting to take kinetic military action and other people who more inclined to do economic warfare this is the way you know here’s the thing about Trump and this is why I think he is a stabilizing force he looks at all options and he’s going to take the option he thinks is best and one of the ones this may be argued the best and has the most backup to it and in in in Dhaka yeah a my concern you’re always concerned particularly when you hear that hey I want a sign you know guys are coming up because I want to sign something so yeah you’ve got to be concerned but at that time particularly was Stephen in the White House and in sessions was still and even Kelly who was never a doc a hardliner just knowing you had reasonable voices around I I knew it was settle out let me ask you about zero tolerance so we jumped out in May the significant of them the significance of the announcement to you to to Miller two sessions the message that setting to the base but then also I’m interested in when the president does back off of it what are you thinking what are you watching and seeing one of my concerns with this is that I think zero tolerance is the most humane because I think it stops and he’s trying to stop the cartels in this human trafficking you know you should be all over you know safe third party country you should be all over you know trying to stop the trafficking human trafficking the zero tolerance to me is the policy to do it what I’m concerned about is this takes a major messaging operation you have to explain the American people are kind of detached on the details of what’s happening on the southern border they’re particularly detach I think about the reality of what’s happening in Central America they’re they’re they’re detach about you know this cauldron right that’s on the southern border particularly how it’s been not just militarized by it particularly northern Mexico in the cartel Wars of the Mexican authorities against the cartels but how the cartels are winning you know in many regards northern Mexico and even some of the some of the southern the United States along the border as people down there were taya are like Afghanistan to a degree that it’s an actual war going on in an insurgency and so my concern at the time is that you know not just people hadn’t thought three moves down but maybe the messaging is not well enough in the in the battlefields not prepared enough it just kind of dropped in understanding President President Trump is always going to respond to what he sees in the media and what he’s a marketing guy he’s gonna he’s going to respond to this thing’s not not meshes properly and people don’t understand what you’re trying to accomplish then I think you can have some some blowback and in fact that’s what happened and I think this is I think this goes to the fact of not just the White House communications department but also Stephen Attorney General Sessions and a broader group that you really have to think three or four moves down in order to serve the American people and to make sure that you’re doing that you’re doing the right thing for this this biblical tragedy that’s coming up from Central America and now on the southern board of the United States but ultimately the president feels like the the rollout and the public sort of criticism is it’s messy it’s fierce it’s it’s pretty aggressive and he he has to withdraw what do you what are you feeling at that point that we’re look it’s ultimately the right policy that you’re going to have to do something and the something is now I think gonna galvanize what the real issues are when it’s the Mexican government you know think about where we’ve come in in that timeframe since the President did back off you now have a third party I think agreement with Guatemala which the northern triangle you have to have your well down the road of having one with with Mexico although you’re not there we have this thing about you know they will the Siloam stickers will stay in Mexico the stay in Mexico program that I know the courts are involved in we’ll have to see how that plays out the Mexican government has also brought in Mexican Marines up to the to the to the northern border which has had a pretty dramatic decrease in asylum seekers we’ve seen we’ve seen a pretty dredit decrease given other comparable time periods here recently so I wasn’t thrilled at the time and one of the reasons I wasn’t thrilled I do believe that zero tolerance is the correct policy right you can’t just have unlimited open economic migration you have to make people go through the ports of entry you have to stick to the political you know the plug called silence system and so I thought at the time it was it was missed and it wasn’t Trump’s fault it was the people around him who very well-intentioned understood the policy but maybe didn’t understand the dynamics of what was going to happen not just from the media but from the execution let me ask you about the midterms and and the caravans that sort of are covered around this time my understanding is that Miller is really keeping a close eye on that giving that information to the president can you take us in there a little bit well you know the caravan started coming up from from Central America and look I thought some of the stuff was was over hyped about you know sources and back of this or who’s in back of it look what’s happening in Central America okay with with those economies in those countries is a tragedy of biblical proportion nobody faults the people in Central America means a horrible situation but the solution to that just like in Europe the solution to to North Africa is not in southern Italy the solution to the problems the economic problems in Central America is not on the southern border United States it’s not in Texas or New Mexico or Arizona or California you know that we have to find a solution there and I think the caravans obviously became I know pretty dramatic particularly some of the media coverage of it President Trump got involved I think that I think the 18 midterms were totally mishandled by the Republican Party because they did not make it a total referendum I think we were held the house if we had had the ground game that went out and made this a referendum on Trump’s presidency I was advocating very early on went on Fox went on a lot of new shows I went around the country with a film called trumpet war to those battleground districts we kind of knew the 25 to 30 they’re going to be in play and make the case for Trump’s overall policies and not just focus on immigration but doing a China the economy and immigration particularly is what he’s trying to accomplish I think that part of the of the caravan I think I thought I think that overdramatized and I also don’t think that we did a particularly good job of empathy with the people coming up look I’m as hardline on immigration as you can possibly get and that is to protect the sovereignty of this country to have the rule of law and particularly to protect cuz I’m a populist protect working-class Hispanic and African American people in in these border communities and low-skilled workers the solution can’t be on their backs and that’s where it’s always going to be unless we solve this and so I think that there are solutions to solve it the first I think is breaking the cartels that’s where you have to have a zero tolerance policy but I do think that it got into too much and we what we can’t do is demonize the people themselves right there they’re in horrible situations in these countries we understand that but we can’t we can’t get into the business of economic migrants and that’s why we have to have more engagement I think in Central America to help sort this thing out and the solution for these problems to me is on the southern border of Mexico and in the triangle countries of Central America let me ask you a little bit about this we jumped over it but you know you leave at a certain point and I wonder about that mission on immigration does that go with you does that you know do you find that there’s more you can do outside as President Trump says I’m his top student so he look these are these are core issues with Trump from the beginning this is why I ran for president people forget look this guy 70 years old he’s a multi-billionaire he’s got a a great family he’s buying championship golf courses and throughout the world I mean this is you know this is not just a what a life well-lived this is the way that you live your best life at the end of your career you know him to step into this cauldron and literally have his face ripped off every day right is is that it was he felt it was a call and a duty a big part of that is this whole situation with with massive illegal immigration is one of the cornerstones of the of the campaign the entire immigration the entire immigration both amass illegal and also the the legal immigration issue so so no this was court I look I do think when I left and I went on the outside because I thought I had where I took one year of my life from basically August 14th to go in the campaign to August 14th in the administration I’m not a staff guy and I felt I’d have a lot more impact and I think I’ve had more impact I mean one of the things we’re doing is have that we have this group that’s actually building a physical wall on the southern border now we’re awed menteng president Trump’s program he and the Army Corps of Engineers are building big swaths of wall which you need but there’s those those midges in the mountains in the deserts that the army quarry they can’t get to are they bypassed that you you need to have built and so I feel like I’ve been more active on the immigration issue on the outside now I do admit you probably lost a little bit of the sting that I can bring to conversations maybe some of the debates that happen internally well you got somebody that’s still there I mean Stephen is and Jeff Sessions was for a long time remember all the problems of President Trump had but he in sessions had over collusion and that part of the Justice Department if you look at somebody that is actually implementing the Trump program Stephen Miller’s internal working group okay which really got under the hood inside the federal government in the apparatus and that’s why Stephen has kind of retreated from the public eye because he’s actually running something that’s quite significant about actually getting stuff done jeff sessions did the same thing i mean as far as the Trump agenda immigration he would have never had a better attorney General than he had what you have sessions I mean those two from the dinner we had those two who stayed behind at least for a while really started to execute on the president’s plan and that’s why I think we made such tremendous strides we’ve made huge strides on this whole immigration issue in the last couple of years a lot of it unheralded and that is because of Stephen Miller Jeff Sessions and the people at the working level that have made this work yeah I mean the legacy that sessions leaves that justice for instance I mean the amount of work that he was doing there from day one it’s extraordinary yes I think that I think you would say that immigration was the central organizing factor in the Justice Department to bring everything together to actually help execute on the president’s plan I think it’s been extraordinary and help me a little bit on that detail on what Stephen Miller’s doing now with with sort of stepping out of the public eye I mean we’ve tried to get to him for a few interviews for this project and it hasn’t happened but but what is the mission I mean he he still represents what you guys said I think he’s accomplishing that I think if you see what I think you see what’s what’s what’s happening all the work that’s being done you know and now you see it every now and again pop up into the into the public sphere all of that work is coming out of the even Miller working for me Stephen is a very detailed policy guy you know we got him on the we got him on the the campaign as a speech writer you know speech writers like his third hat he’s really he was a policy guy and so he’s done he really an immigration policy has been his thing for many many many years you know so it’s he you know at Capitol Hill so even before he worked for sessions so he’s you know and I think this working group he has has been very effective it’s been methodical and it’s also been below the radar which I think has also been very helpful helped me understand what you guys have accomplished at this point well I think you’ve you started look first off we brought the border security now up to the forefront and where he’s building the wall there’ll be five or what five hundred miles of replacement wall alone and remember replacement wall there might they mock Trump off that all you just replace remember the wall there’s Rou there the Normandy barriers and others were in the high volume areas that coming across so it’s very important to do the replacement one I think they’re actually quite smart at doing that then he’s got all this new wall I mean in Trump’s administration you’re gonna have you’re gonna have a lot of the wall built plus you have enhanced awareness by Border Patrol of border security also with ice you really have had a real execution on the issue of internal enforcement and I realizes that’s been controversial of course the Democrats want to do away with ice they want to do with border patrol but he’s done a real he’s done an effective job I don’t think they’ve quite gotten to the employees of the employers excuse me as they should but I think they’ve done a very effective job I think he’s also started to bring up the whole siscon traversée over economic asylum which really was not addressed in the Obama administration remember they say kids and cages and all that that all started during Obama in fourteen it was Breitbart because Border Patrol came to us went the photographs it was Breitbart that broke all those stories about kids and cages were the Obama administration we broke it and then you know CNN and Huffington Post and a BBC jumped on it right away and so this has been going on for a while and I think now you’re seeing some resolution of this the whole accomplishment of the safe third party of really getting an asylum system that works that’s going to work both for asylum seekers and for the the people in the United States I believe this is why President Trump yeah we we got 29 percent of the Hispanic vote I think President Trump because of economic policies and his enforcement is going to get I believe forty percent of the Hispanic vote in 2020 because these policies so I think if you look at we’ve now have a couple of very innovative programs on legal immigration I don’t think they’re hardline enough but you’re starting to see that despite and discussion with Tom cotton and other people putting forward bills so now you really have a policy and you have an engaged debate and I don’t let you know you have Durbin you have people on the Left they have an opinion and look they have political power too but now we’re engaged in really debate for years and years and years and years and years we just let this drift and you go down at everybody the watch of this show should go down to the border they should go to El Paso they should go to the Rio Grande Valley and they should go to some of these border towns as Americans and talk to the people in these border towns right and now every town in the country is becoming a bored of town because of the influence of the cartels and the drugs and the human trafficking but for many years we let this drift and this is what I really admire about Trump whether it’s China whether it’s the Middle East whether it’s whether it’s immigration he’s not gonna let these problems drift he’s a businessman business people are into providing solutions he’s not a politician politicians all talk and they will let stuff drift right now we actually are engaged as a nation and I think in 2020 it’s even going to be more of a centerpiece in the national debate as it should be you know I believe look we’re gonna win some we’re gonna lose some you know we lost in 18 we won in 16 that’s what democracy is about but at least now it’s a fully engaged debate about what the issues are what the stakes are and quite frankly what direction we want to see the country go how potent of an issue is immigration as we look to 2020 I think it’s going to be light like in 2013 of cone packed to that dinner where he said hey trade is number 100 in immigration is number 3 2020 is going to be shaped I think by by two things by China and in the trade really the economic kourin China which brings in many elements of Iran Saudi Arabia all of that into one and then immigration and it says it’s it’s really about globalization versus the nation-state both of these are come down to what is a nation what is the sovereignty of nation what is it mean to be a citizen what type of deal should you have if you are a citizen this to me is going to be what the real debate is on 2020 I think it’s a great debate to have and I think I know people have very different opinions on this that’s what a democracy is about and I think the Trump is the perfect candidate for us to bring this up and I think you’re going to see in the Democratic side is they select somebody comes through their primaries you’re gonna see I think they’re gonna be a little more radicalized so they can already see this but I think it’s a great debate to have and to me those two will be the central defining elements of the of the 2020 campaign so lastly on immigration I mean this film starts off with the embassy meeting now we’re seven years later but at the you know at the point in which you sort of look back and you think about everything you set out to do at that meeting everything you dreamed about doing what did you accomplish how do you if we ascent there that night because of the dinner went on for you know five hours or longer if that night we had said that in the the fall of 19 going into 20 we would have made this these two issues the centerpiece of American politics and quite frankly changed American politics remember American politics today what’s going forward you’re either gonna have populist nationalism or get a populist socialism but the populist movement okay which i think is great right even on the left I’d rather have a populist than these elites of either side run of the things that you have populism and at that time there was a word nobody knew you know nationalism was like this horrible word right to defend the nation-state if we said that dinner oh you know what in seven or eight years this will be the defining this will be the the nomenclature people use and actually the trade will be number one probably about China in immigration number two but both inextricably linked because the city you know the two sides of the same coin that we would be having that in that in that you know networks like PBS would be doing specials to talk about this I would have said within Jeff we definitely get you definitely got a run for president sessions was very wise that night he says I’m not the guy but that person will come along and these issues will be up and manifested in that and I think we’ve seen that I think we’ve seen that in American political history I think he said that that figure was the imperfect instrument now looking back he’s the first look down for all the grief he gets in the media you know he knows he has human failings like everybody else a lot of that’s the false bravado and the false front in the in the Trump you know he didn’t have to do this he it was a duty I think he felt and he did it for his country he’s he’s a patriot and you know he’s not perfect none of us are perfect but if you look at what he’s accomplished and particularly what I’m most proud of is the stability he’s offered let’s take about those times he goes back and forth there’s still that’s this the signal in the noise the signal is very strong that this is going to be a big issue we’re not going to back down on it we’re gonna solve it but we’re gonna solve it in a way his default position we’re always going to solve it in favor of citizens where those citizens are Hispanic african-american Muslim we’re going to solve it on the side of the citizens okay and that is what a nation-state is and that is what nationalism is and so I think his default position although I’m sure in this film you’re going to see times these do it this way in that way if you look at that that’s that’s the noise the signal couldn’t be stronger and I think that’s what we’re gonna come to ultimately a heat look he shifted the Overton Window right we are now debating all the topics on Donald Trump’s turf okay that in the in the in January 2013 that looked like a pipe dream today that’s the reality [Music] you

  1. He is rescuing US or even our civilization and freedom. He is awaking and enlightening us. People in democratic countries have been living in mostly peaceful time for long time thus forgetting how our ancestors and founders sacrifice for freedom.

That's 30 years of giving our jobs away and flooding the country with illegal immigration and by 2008 all the horse shit imploded and we the American people paid the price while the  four mentioned remained with all their money. thank god Trump came around and defeated both parties.

  10. Brilliant interview! Bannon knows the issues and understand the effects upon the future of the US and the world. I too wish he was still involved in the T-admin but I don't blame him for growing weary of the infighting or "knife fights" with other staff. Will always appreciate what he tried to accomplish and the work he continues to be involved in ❤🇺🇸👍

  13. Republicans are silently noticing the power of their Deplorable Base.. the Base that the Republican Leadership finds contemptible and cares about NOT AT ALL.

    They seem to have conceded that if Trump is not supported, THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS FINISHED. We will NOT turn out to vote for our enemies. It is TRUMP who is the Chief RINO (Republican In Name Only)…He is not Republican first. He and We are Americans First…Black Americans, White Americans. Hispanic Americans Asian Americans, Native Americans and Middle Eastern Americans. Any Americans. Without Americans, Individual Freedoms in the Whole World will be lost. It's an uphill battle that may not remain non-violent. The enemy is evil.

It's too late now while they all fight over the scraps and distract us so we don't killz every last one of them before the credit and supply chains break down.

  20. Trump is using the central bank/ fiat Petro dollar to rebuild the United States, then he is going to expose their criminality and purposely default on the dept. and put the Petro dollar back onto the gold standard. He is building the economy now to do that. Same thing the central bank/ fed reserve did before these criminals took the dollar off the gold standard in 1971 and caused mass inflation with the worthless federal reserve Petro Dollar which the Fed. Reserve prints whenever they want Willy Nilly. The petro dollar is the reason gas is not 36 cents a gallon anymore and the people of the U.S. now live off of dept/ credit cards and have been brainwashed to believe that, that and inflation is normal. ALL of the stock market crashs' sinse 1913 were purposely done by the central bank which is ran by Trillionairs like the Rothschild's.

  24. Seize the initiative! Define the public narrative! Launch an all out full court press every minute of every day. Give the enemy no quarter! When they hit back, instantly hit them 10 times harder!

  25. I like Bannon, but what's with this pronunciation of "Et Cetera" as 'Ek cetera' ??
    I've heard it so many times done by the Americans that it's not funny anymore. Ha, ha, ha. Don't they know how it's spelled?

  26. Only in modern America would this man be taken seriously, or given any respect at all.
    He and Trump are heroes to the stupid and downtrodden, which is why they are continually creating more of them.
    It's not governing the people, it's farming them.
    America, where the fuck is your "Well regulated militia ?"
    The Constitution is bollocks, the Statue of Liberty is a joke.
    And when some banana republic on the other side of the world gets a new missile you all shit yourselves.
    Make America great FOR ONCE.

  28. Trump came up when the America economic was entirely bad . Trump party captured points for people interests which are basic people living needs and he won . He will continue to win in 2020 presidency. I will predict the after next 4 years presidency goes to Democrat party , personal opinions!

  30. Very good piece of interview. Now I understood Steven Bannon even more. I choose populist nationalist over populist socialist a hundred time, because I know in first hand how socialism can benefit a few but damage the most.

  31. Bannon is a turn coat bastige. In the coming months you will all see what a dirty bastard this guy really is

  32. Nothing changes until things change. Bannon talks about “deconstructing the apparatus” resulting in what? How exactly does this make the US competitive in the future? I don’t trust politicians until things change.

    I’m surrounded by people desperate for inspiration, full of fear, and ripe for exploitation. Nothing changes until things change.

  34. Be sure to cook dinner while watching the super long ads designed to destroy all truth tellers on YouTube. If you skip the ads youtube will start blocking these content providers because they are “not profitable “ starting in 2020. Just read the comments while waiting for ads to end! It is the least we can do to support these channels.

    I just hope that the elites will understand this, otherwise they will be up to something drastic = stupid wars as the last straw to maintain their lewd wealth status. Remember 1789? If you don't, look it up! It happened in Europe which is not far away now.

  36. Bannon talks a lot of sense; however, he is way off on the Russian economy, it out exports the US on strategic materials, natural gas, machine tools etc, it produces the best selling comercial helicopter in the world and a raft of other consumer industrial agricultural eqiupment that is internationally highley regarded.
    The population is better educated, healthier, and most importantly homogenes , not racially but from a national point of view, as a people they are singing from the same page. Unlike the US where about one third the population is functionally illiterate, granted they can work a lap top well enough to find their favourite porn sites, get drugs and murder one another.
    On NewYorks economy being lager than the Russian federation, Newyork City is essentially a Punic Colony and parasite, a cancer thats destructive viens now run throughout the USA, it produces nothing for the nation of real value, and its values are the singular problem facing the country.

  37. FYI Trump is a puppet playing the roll of savior, he is controlled opposition working for Israel against us..I voted for him but after learning all the Zionist in his inner circle,his in-laws and financial rewards he got from the very ones behind mass migration, it is no wonder caravans are worse than ever and anyone helping him get elected has to be in on the scam. One thing I know about these traitors is how they play you as a being on your side knowing “the best way to defeat the opposition is to lead it” (Lenin). ..over the years I found so many of the Alex Jones types here on J3WTUBE that you have to really do your homework.

  38. Nice compilation of Bannon Interviews. I do love listening to Bannon because he tells it like it is in vernacular I can understand.

  39. My biggest fear is that having gained some control we will be the good guys. Good guys (The Right) will knock down an opponent and step back. Bad guys (The Left) will knock you down and then kick you to death.
    We need to follow through or the Left will just keep coming back.
    Clear out the civil service, CIA, FBI. Clear out the educational establishment. Defund public media, defund Planned Parenthood, defund left wing NGOs, stop immigration from third world countries etc etc. Jail the Clintons, Pelosi etc.
    Don't stop until the left is wiped out.

  40. Totally agree. Only thing missing is the mentioning of the last upper swamp layer, the Cheney's and the Rothschilds that still control our country via people like Epstein, Abrams, Bolton…

  42. I don't know much about Steve Bannon but I do remember how the media painted him as basically the devil. They really smeared him so much that I didn't even want to see him anymore on TV.

    But over time fortunately after doing a little more research and watching videos like this I can see the side of Steve Bannon that the media should have been showing Americans.
    The more I ponder this I see much cleaer how reckless and biased the media is to the point of it being sinful. And today we still have the media continuing to show that it has no conscience or care for decency.
    It's one thing to disagree with but good journalism would be showing both perspectives. And it's just more proof that the left media does not have the American people's best interests at heart.

  43. The swamp is very deep. Never seen anyone as our President attacked so relentlessly and viciously.

    God bless you, Mr. President.

    Drain the evil swamp. In addition, the corrupt media has the biggest fault in dividing America.
