Steve Bannon’s Treason and Gaslighting


Resident Donald Trump’s chief strategist has escalated the administration’s war with the media, labeling it “the opposition party” and suggesting that it “keep its mouth shut.”

“The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for awhile,” Steve Bannon said during a rare interview with The New York Times on Wednesday.

 “I want you to quote this,” Bannon told the 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.”


The media understands this country very well. They live in it for Christ’s sake. How oblivious is Steve Bannon to come off and say Americans do not understand the country they were born and raised in, as the reason for his displeasure. This is gaslighting.

The media also understands why Trump is the president. I think everyone that voted for him does.  Some may have some keener awareness of how he pushed people’s buttons and pointed at wrong solutions, to gain favor.

Bannon is gaslighting. That is his solution to public relations?

Well, maybe his feet are a little wobbly.  He seems to think Americans OWE Trump something. And it is Americans that are being an obstacle to the president. And not performing properly!

Trump won the audition. He won the part. It his duty to perform.

If he isn’t getting applause, he needs to change his act. This is show biz and Trump is total theater. He just needs to bring it on.  Right now he can’t seem to remember his lines.

What Bannon does not seem to understand, is that Trump will not be applauded because of photo ops this time around.

He made promises. He needs to deliver all that he promised and EARN the people’s applause.  He also needs to improve conditions, not worsen them.

Asking Americans to adapt blind trust as a coping method is assuming people are sheep.

As far as people America being silenced about the president, I recommend Bannon review some history of how we arrived here today. And who led the way.

Trump is a late arrival to an old played out game, and he wants to be accepted and regarded as a savior.  Without having earned anyone’s trust. Not to mention, nobody needs saving.

Theater only goes so far.

Keep it real Bannon. And try to think of some better solutions than gag orders and gaslighting for social intercourse.

Right now your hat is not to tell Americans how to think, to consider themselves stupid and hallucinatory, and when to shut up. Neither is your hat to create more drama. It is to manage OPD.  Other People’s Drama. .

“To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.”

Steve Bannon’s record of child neglect and child abuse hits the radar.

No Human Being Is On Earth Illegally



There are higher powers than local politicians.

People move to survive.

That is a God given right.

Stop calling humans trying to survive criminals.

It is not criminal to survive.

The purpose of laws and policy,  to protect and safeguard your fellow man.  One is not supposed to use laws or policy for ethnic cleansing goals. This trick was already used on one nation.

Discounting or devaluing a human being because of their identity in a way that gives you license to abuse or violate them, is anti humanity.

Quote on the Statue of Liberty

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”

It is the statue of LIBERTY, Not The Statue Of Bigotry.

Every single one of our ancestors came to America because they were running away from something. Mainly, the malevolence and lack of compassion people are now spreading in this society.

This is a discredit to all of those that spilled blood to make America a refuge.


Trump Playing Politics With National Security Is Treason



Blatant treason, is when  Trump renders his inauguration speech and declares that the United States Military has been depleted. That we can not or will not defend our own borders. And that our infrastructure is not viable.

“For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry; subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military; we’ve defended other nation’s borders while refusing to defend our own; and spent trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.”

Yes, more or less, telling the world we are in no position to defend ourselves.

Then he runs over to the C.I.A. the next day to announce to them, “I have your back”?



While his attention is stuck to ratings.

Wow, television ratings just out: 31 million people watched the Inauguration, 11 million more than the very good ratings from 4 years ago!


The man is thrilled that he has announced to 31 million people that America is in no position to defend itself.

Is there anyone in Washington that can orientate the new apprentice to his new surroundings and obligations to this country?

Necessary Evils


His first act as the World’s most powerful leader?  Trump Stamps Out History And Science as His First Offering To The World.

Newly elected president Trump went straight to the government’s web site, not literally of course. Word is, he does not use a computer.  He obviously divested an underling with this  urgent  mission. deleted nearly all mention of climate change.

I suppose he has not seen Ken Burn’s documentary, “The Dust Bowl”.

Trump is violently opposed to suggestions that mankind can have any control or impact on the Earth’s conditions.  He may have squads out at this very moment searching for copies of the documentary and burning them. (Kidding so far).

Man has created droughts. And right now the mid west, our bread basket, is watered by underground taps that have a life span of fifteen years.  But that will be someone else’s burden.

Of course, if people did notice there was a drought or climate change, real estate would crash in certain areas. Who pays the local  government?  Property taxes.  God forbid a hurt should go on the real estate values.

Within moments of the inauguration, the official White House website on Friday deleted nearly all mentions of climate change.  And in it’s place was Mr. Trump’s vow to eliminate the Obama administration’s climate change policies, which previously had a prominent and detailed web page on

So, out of sight out of mind. Wow! Trump solved the problem of climate change by moving it out of view and off the table.  That man is a real problem solver!

He then signs off on Oklahoma’s Attorney General Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency.

Pruitt is one of 27 State Aottorneys currently suing the EPA over the “Clean Power Plan”, which cuts emissions from coals-fired power plants. On his own LinkedIn page, Pruitt claims to be , “A leading advocate against the EPA’s activist agenda”.

Mr. Trump remains dismissive of the established science of human-caused climate change, and committed to blocking policies to curb it.

First day at his desk was monumental!

Next?  The removal of all of the Obama administration’s personal and policy pages.

As if this information was the number one menace to our society.

Some people learn by education. Some by seeing. Some by being there. Some by feeling. But there is a percentage of our population who only learns by evil and loss. And so we carry the burden of “necessary evils”.

I have too much to do to watch Mr. Trump, and others who’s names I shall not mention here, (mercy), play Three Card Monty. And report my findings daily.

Being a person of faith, I can see what is coming is another necessary evil. Not questioning why. Often, evil people wake us up. Teach us to better know ourselves. We either rise above them, survive in spite of them, or run behind them in the witch hunts.  Evil people can help you know things about yourself, which can be highly beneficial.

The after party, as the White House turned into a pub with overpriced drinks, was dancers, dancers, and more dancers!

I must say, because of Trump’s history as a serial stalker of dancers in New York, it was a Biblical moment for me to see him have to dance for his supper.

Oh yeah babe, the times they are a changing.





The Cost of Wanting for Your Fellow Man


I came across a very intelligent article this morning .

Commentary: The unbearable smugness of the press

Beautiful article.  I can feel his want for trying to correct himself.  For trying to get to the bottom of what he did wrong, what his colleagues did wrong.  He beats himself up.  Tears himself down.

Do not beat yourself up for over estimating people.  The hopeful, trusting and empathetic tend to lose that way. Then we beat ourselves up for “arrogance” or “smugness”.

It is not “arrogance”.  It is hope, trust and love for our fellow man.  It is hard to discover if that has been misplaced.

But We do them no honor when we turn on ourselves for not leaning on pity and exploiting their handicaps as others do.
