Steve Bannon blasts Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump as everything wrong with the White House – on Huffington Post, via AOL

A political marriage not made in heaven

[ Editor’s Note: Well it looks like Trump got an early Christmas gift from Bannon via Vanity Fair special delivery. Some of it is old news, but it is not a small thing to have the ultimate Trump campaign insider point out how our make-believe president Trump thinks his kids can instantly be qualified as “senior advisers”, simply on his say so.

It is beginning to blow up in his face. Congress, especially the Republicans, have been quiet about the White House nepotism on steroids, as they have enough Trump problems on their hands as it is, like having to pray every night that he does not tweet something totally childish the next morning.

Even though Kushner is cooperating on Russiagate in the FBI probe, don’t be surprised if we later learn that it has been building a separate case on him for influence-pedaling. The FBI has always played soft shoe on that subject, but Trump has been taking it to an incredible new level. I suspect that more than a few in the FBI and Justice department feel they will look bad if they just let it go by.

How possible, even probable, do you think it could be that Kushner is trying to save the families’ bankrupt business on back-end deals with the Saudis, on things like arms sales, or helping out the Likuds in Israel, etc., so that even if Trump only lasts four years, both families will be set for life?

What kind of favor would a deep pocket be willing to do to set up some assistance for them? Could such a favor include continuing, even escalating, the Iranian bogeyman hype?

Who is gunning for who now to be removed?

And ask yourself how many people who might want to feed the FBI such material did they have on this, including people in the CIA and intercept business, even those monitoring Bibi’s dealings with the Trump “family”, doing so on national security grounds.

Such agencies cannot do anything directly themselves, but they are not helpless when it comes to leaving a bread crumb trail for others to follow.

With Trump’s polls declining even within his base, if this holds, he will be a dead man walking at the midterms politically, and maybe even criminally. Those elections are going to be a battleground for an issue that is not really being discussed.

The Dems might win a lot of independent and even Republican crossover support to put Congress in a better position for impeachment, which will never happen with the Repubs in the majority. If you add in Trump’s disaffected base, it might be enough to tip the scalesJim W. Dean ]

“And yes, being treated like royalty…grooming for what?”

– First published … December 24, 2027

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has attacked President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner as the “railhead of all bad decisions” in the White House.


Bannon picked apart the problems of the White House and derided the couple as “Javanka” in a wide-ranging interview with Vanity Fair published Thursday. He said Ivanka was a “fount of bad advice during the campaign,” and claimed he once called her to her face “the queen of leaks.”

Vanity Fair also reported Bannon considers Kushner an elitist with no political experience who is in over his head and is out of touch with Trump’s constituency.

“He doesn’t know anything about the hobbits or the deplorables,” Bannon said. “The railhead of all bad decisions is the same railhead: Javanka.”

He said it was Kushner who encouraged Trump to fire FBI director James Comey.

“It’s the dumbest political decision in modern political history, bar none,” Bannon insisted, calling it a “self-inflicted wound of massive proportions.”

Bannon didn’t exactly gush about his old boss, either.

“The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over,” he told writer Gabriel Sherman, and reportedly told a friend last month that he believes the president has “lost a step.” He joked to Vanity Fair that Trump is “like an 11-year-old child.”

Bannon has reportedly said in private conversations that he believes Trump only has a 30 percent chance of finishing his term because he may be impeached or removed from office under the 25th Amendment.

Bannon doesn’t let himself off easy, either.

“I realize in hindsight I was just a staffer, and I’m not a good staffer,” he said. “I had influence, I had a lot of influence, but just influence.”

Now, outside of the White House and back at Breitbart, Bannon said, he feels more powerful.

“I have power. I can actually drive things in a certain direction,” he said.

  1. How odd that someone who promoted Trump as the next best thing to sliced white bread has now turned on the very same man.
    Bannon is a raving zionist, Trump has bent over backwards and allowed Bibi to stuff his rump giving away Jerusalem , arming the Saudis, and sending weapons to Ukraine. Thus creating even more instability in that region of the world.
    So one must ask why now?
    Is it because of Jarhed the jue?
    So Bannon has a problem with nepotism…welcome to the club.

  2. The Clinton’s didn’t begin the art of family enrichment they just took it to a new level. They entered office with a declared worth of less than $100k.(?) Look where are they now? O’bama was worth under a million but left as a $50 millionaire. The path is clear. Trump will crush all previous records, and exit as the 1st $trillionaire$. The Bush family doesn’t count as they were billionaires by the 80s. Only in America.
    $1 billion = 2,500 Harvard educations = 1 F35 fighter = 20,000 high school eds = whatever.
    Talk of nepotism is Creepy Joe Biden’s son still running the energy biz in the Ukraine? He qualified for the job right after the Maidan Sq. massacre. Looks good on the resume.

  3. Daddy Kushner did time for multiple felonies, bribing, and compromising a witness. When he got out of jail he brought in two other high end fraudsters he met in prison home with him to work in his RE companies. All of Trump’s civil suits were also felonies, but where he wiggled out on the civil side, but got out of criminal charges like he had a guardian angel looking after him. These are not “serve the country” folks. Their histories are that they are always in it for themselves. We have had past presidents bring siblings in, but they were not bare of qualifications. With the kids it is a huge difference. Kushner is in because of the family being long time friend of Netanyahu, where Bibi even slept in Jared’s bed when visiting. He can pass messages in person that Trump does not want even US Intel to know about, and as a member of the Trump WH staff cannot be investigated or questioned without presidential permission. It is a dream come true situation for mobsters, and that’s what we have.

  4. Bannon wants to be Louis Howe and he would have done it too, if it wasn’t for those pesky kids.
    The insane arrogance that the Trump children have is a product of many years of elitism training.
    They took the roles as if they had been waiting and expecting. Their behavior gives away a lot.
    This onion needs a few layers to be removed. What exactly has been promised here ?
    It makes sense for Trump to keep trusted people close due to his paranoia but when a presidents daughter is setting a precedent, check the blood. Twice. It wouldn’t be the first time adoption was used. If you stand to gain so much without an election or appointment based on merit, it is worth extraordinary security measures.

  5. Russell Houghman… are you the Grinch the Haifa trolls sent is for Xmas from Bullshit Mountain? Unlike Zionist trolls gliding in from bullshit mountain we do answer legitimate questions with solid answers. Question:

    • Yeah I forgot, I am a self hating semite or an anti-semite. Port back to bullshit mountain immediately. Ho Ho Ho.

  6. When in ALL political history of USA has a US President been allowed to “plant” family and friends into the White house to do their own business on the side or before “American politics”? 12 month after “winning the election” USA lies still dormant in that matter that private persons ILLEGALLY cashing in with deals of “Senior adviser positions”.
    Has anything what “American founders” came up with at the beginning of American history any meaning in America at all or was it the first official American “Kol Nidre” adapted to American politics????????

  7. Huffman is puffing again. “Smart” is subjective, at best. Ivanka . . . and the entire clan . . . nothing but HO HO HO’s ’tis the season.
    The “First” Lady is a Tramp, ain’t I right Frankie?!?

    And I admire our First Lady quite a bit. I admire her because she turned out to be a good trade-in model. I admire her because she took her Rosary with her on their jaunt this past year, and had it blessed by the Pope. I would have done the same. She is surrounded by Jews, so this was a very Brave Irene thing to do.

    Regarding Jared vs. Bannon . . . who let that cat fight out of the bag? Whoever did, THANKS!!
