    Bannon and the fall of 'populism'
    • By E.J. DIONNE JR.
    • 7 hrs ago

    Is President Trump a populist or a corporatist?

    Is he appealing to white supremacists as a form of political opportunism -- or because, deep down, he sympathizes with their views? Is he the hard-core "fire and fury" hawk of his North Korea statements? Or is he actually a non-interventionist who disdains foreign engagement?

    The answer to all these questions is: Who knows? There is absolutely no way of establishing what Trump believes. He says whatever he feels he has to say at any given moment to get attention, strike back at foes or advance his personal (especially economic) interests.

    But Trump's decision to let go of his right-wing-populist-in-chief Steve Bannon sends a clear signal that the president's "populism" has always been a ruse. And Bannon committed the cardinal sins of dishing to a liberal journalist and dissing his own base within the Republican Party.

    One reason Bannon has always inspired fascination is that he has a set of beliefs that, while not always coherent, are strongly held. Faced with a president whose ideology verges on nihilism, here was someone in the Trump orbit who cared about certain things passionately. Bannon was allowed to fill in the blanks left by an empty man.

    This explains Bannon's seemingly fatal decision to call my friend Robert Kuttner, a left-of-center economic populist who disagrees with Trump on all manner of issues but does share Bannon's skepticism about China's role in the global economic system. Bannon seemed to think that he could strengthen his position by seeking allies on the left. This, we have learned conclusively, is not how this fundamentally right-wing White House works.

    Kuttner's account of the conversation, published in The American Prospect, was striking because (1) Bannon declared, against Trump's bellicose public bloviating, that "there's no military solution" to the North Korea problem; (2) Bannon sees the U.S. facing an "economic war with China" that we have to be "maniacally focused on"; (3) he's been in "a fight ... every day" on these matters with the Treasury Department and Trump's chief economic adviser Gary Cohn; and (4) he called the ethno-nationalists with whom he is often associated "a collection of clowns."

    Yet Bannon also seemed to welcome the public battles that Trump's moral equivalency toward neo-Nazis and their foes in Charlottesville has unleashed. "The Democrats," Bannon told Kuttner, "the longer they talk about identity politics, I got 'em. I want them to talk about racism every day. If the left is focused on race and identity, and we go with economic nationalism, we can crush the Democrats."

    Well. Bannon's last point, despite his departure, could be a Rosetta Stone for Trump's shameful handling of Charlottesville: The president may figure that dividing Americans along racial lines while fueling a fight on the left over identity vs. class politics will leave him a winner.

    But Bannon made all of this way too explicit. He also overlooked the large national consensus against neo-Nazis, Klansmen and white supremacists. Trump can't admit that he's playing politics with race, and ethno-nationalism is, fortunately, being challenged more forcefully than ever.

    Bannon got into trouble for other reasons as well, notably by directly contradicting Trump's posture on North Korea. His dismissal is a triumph for Cohn, White House chief of staff John Kelly and national security adviser H.R. McMaster. Friends of a steadier foreign policy will cheer Bannon's fall -- although who knew that doves had a secret ally in the former head of Breitbart News?

    Bannon's ouster will no doubt be described as a victory for "moderation." But it also underscores that for all of Trump's talk about workers and jobs, his administration's substantive actions have mainly benefited corporate interests. This is especially true of its rolling back of rules around the environment, Wall Street and various worker and consumer protections.

    As political scientists Matt Grossmann and David Hopkins observed earlier this month on The Washington Post's "Monkey Cage" blog, Trump's actual behavior, including his "regulatory retrenchment," suggests he is likely to "compile the most conservative policy record of any recent administration."

    Trump carried the crucial states of the Midwest because he was not a conventional conservative. Bannon, for all his disturbing inclinations, understood this. Does Trump?

    The president's defenders will cheer this decision as an effort to create a more orderly and predictable administration. Just as likely, we are witnessing yet another erratic move from a leader who doesn't know what he believes and was uneasy with an aide who dared imagine that there was a point to his presidency.

    GOP leaders must overcome their timidity and denounce Trump
    • By EUGENE ROBINSON
    • 7 hrs ago

    White racial grievance. The time has come for Republicans in Congress to decide whether this is what they signed up for.

    Business leaders decided last Wednesday that they'd had enough, quitting two presidential advisory councils before Trump quickly dissolved the panels. Military leaders made their call as well, issuing statements -- in the wake of Charlottesville -- making clear they embrace diversity and reject bigotry.

    With only a few exceptions, however, GOP political leaders have been too timid to denounce the president and the reprehensible game of racial politics he's playing. I think the corporate chief executives who bailed are making the right bet: History will remember who spoke out, who was complicit, and who stood idly by.

    Thursday on Twitter (where else?) Trump poured salt in the nation's wounds by coming out firmly against the removal of public monuments to the Confederacy -- the issue that brought white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan to Charlottesville and led to the death of Heather Heyer.

    "Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments," he wrote. "You can't change history, but you can learn from it. Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson -- who's next, Washington, Jefferson? So foolish!"

    Some slippery-slope arguments are valid but the one Trump makes is absurd. He can't possibly be so dense that he doesn't see a clear distinction between the men who founded this nation and those who tried to rip it apart.

    Trump may indeed not know that most of those Confederate monuments were erected not in the years right after the Civil War but around the turn of the 20th century, when the Jim Crow system of state-enforced racial oppression was being established. They symbolize not history but the defiance of history; they celebrate not defeat on the battlefield but victory in putting uppity African-Americans back in their place.

    But even if someone explained all of this to Trump -- perhaps in a one-page briefing memo with lots of pictures -- he wouldn't care. For him, the important thing is to tell the white voters who constitute his base that they are being disrespected and dispossessed. It's a cynical and dangerous ploy.

    We know this is Trump's game because White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon told us so. In an interview with journalist Robert Kuttner of The American Prospect, published Wednesday, Bannon is quoted as saying: "The Democrats, the longer they talk about identity politics, I got 'em. I want them to talk about racism every day. If the left is focused on race and identity, and we go with economic nationalism, we can crush the Democrats."

    But Trump's base won't identify with Nazis and the KKK. That's why Trump maintained -- falsely -- that among the torch-bearing Charlottesville white supremacists there were also plenty of "nice people." And it's why he now seeks to broaden the issue to encompass Confederate monuments nationwide, abandoning his earlier position that the question should be left to local jurisdictions.

    That's probably also why Bannon, in the interview with Kuttner, referred to the white-power clowns as, well, "clowns." He's smart enough to reassure Trump supporters that they're not like those racists and that all the racial game-playing is on the other side.

    Trump's desperation is palpable. His approval ratings have slid perilously close to the danger zone where Republican officeholders no longer fear crossing him.

    For titans of the business community, the tipping point came Wednesday. The chief executives of such companies as General Electric, Campbell Soup, Johnson & Johnson and 3M decided they could no longer serve on Trump's advisory Manufacturing Council or his Strategy & Policy Forum.

    Why stick around? Prospects that Trump can actually follow through on a business-friendly agenda, including tax reform, look increasingly dim. And Trump's "many sides" reaction to Charlottesville wasn't going over at all well with employees, customers or the executives themselves.

    "Constructive economic and regulatory policies are not enough and will not matter if we do not address the divisions in our country," JPMorgan Chase chief Jamie Dimon wrote in a message to his employees. "It is a leader's role, in business or government, to bring people together, not tear them apart."

    The chiefs of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and National Guard also publicly condemned hate groups in the wake of Charlottesville. They, of course, could not mention the commander in chief by name.

    But politicians can. And they must.

    America's elites respond to Trump with cowardice
    • By FAREED ZAKARIA
    • 7 hrs ago

    Much of America has reacted swiftly and strongly to Donald Trump's grotesque suggestion that there is a moral equivalence between the white supremacists who converged last weekend on Charlottesville, Virginia, and those who protested against them. But the delayed, qualified and mealy mouthed reactions of many in America's leadership class tell a disturbing story about the country's elites -- and the reason we are living in an age of populist rebellion.

    The least respected of today's leaders are, of course, politicians. The public largely views them as craven and cowardly, pandering to polls and focus groups. And that is how too many Republican officials have behaved in the face of Trump's words and actions. With some honorable exceptions, men and women who usually cannot stop pontificating on every topic on live TV have suddenly gone mute on the biggest political subject of the day.

    I know. They worry about the base, about primaries, about right-wing donors. But shouldn't they also worry about their country and their conscience? Shouldn't they ask themselves why they went into public service in the first place? And if they see someone at the highest level trampling on the values of the country, shouldn't they speak up -- directly, forcefully and without qualification?

    Business leaders, meanwhile, are still among the most respected and envied people in America today. They run vast organizations, get paid on a scale that makes their predecessors from just 25 years ago look middle-class, and live in a bubble of private planes, helicopters and limousines. In other words, they have all the wealth, power and security that should allow them to set standards and lead.

    Again, with some honorable exceptions, business leaders have been cowards. Most of them surely think Trump is a charlatan, a snake-oil salesman. In the past, some chose not to do business with him because they believed he was unethical. Others were initially amused by his candidacy but regarded his rhetoric on trade, immigration and refugees as loathsome. And yet, almost none of them spoke out against him. Few even distanced themselves after he blamed "many sides" for the violence in Charlottesville. Had Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier not resigned from one of Trump's advisory boards and Trump not doubled down on his initial comments, it is unclear how many other CEOs would have spoken out. And even then, some jumped ship from the advisory councils only when it became clear that there was really no alternative.

    America's technology pioneers might be the most admired people on the planet. They are viewed as smart, innovative and successful. Many among them are not just rich but claim to be wise beyond words, prophets of the future who opine on space travel and artificial intelligence. Can they not see what is going on right here on Earth at the White House and condemn it?

    Where are evangelical Christian leaders on a matter of basic morality? While some have made their voices heard, it is striking how many have not, or have even endorsed Trump's comments. Do they have a burning moral duty to speak out against protections for LGBT Americans but not neo-Nazi violence?

    America once did have more public-minded elites. But they came from a small clubby world, the Protestant establishment. Not all were born rich, but they knew they had a secure place atop the country. They populated the nation's boardrooms, public offices and best schools. This security gave them greater comfort in exercising moral leadership.

    Today we have a more merit-based elite, what is often called a meritocracy. It has allowed people from all walks of life to rise up into positions of power and influence. But these new elites are more insecure, anxious and self-centered. Politicians are likely to be solo entrepreneurs, worried about the next primary or fundraiser. CEOs live with the constant fear that they might lose their jobs or that their company might lose its customers in an instant. Religious leaders worry that they will lose congregants. These groups may not think they have the luxury to be high-minded, but they do. They are vastly more secure than most people in America, or in human history. If they cannot act out of broader interest, who can?

    The group of public figures who deserve the most praise this week are the military brass. In a remarkable act of leadership for people who actually work under the president, the heads of all five branches of the armed forces issued statements unequivocally denouncing racism and bigotry. Perhaps this is because the military has been the institution that has most successfully integrated America's diverse population. Perhaps it is because the military remains an old-fashioned place, where a sense of honor, standards and values still holds. The military chiefs have shown why they still command so much respect in the country. America's other elites should take note.

    Descent into the Dark Ages: Turning our back on science
    • BY THEODORE J. COHEN
    • 8 hrs ago

    Until the 1600s and the time of Galileo, people generally believed the Sun revolved around the Earth. Even today, one quarter of Americans still believe the Earth is the center of the universe.i It should come as no surprise, then, that the head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Scott Pruitt, is, at this writing, pushing for the creation of a governmentwide effort to question the validity of climate-change science.

    Critics — including this writer, who holds degrees in the physical sciences — agree: this is nonsense ... nothing more and nothing less than another example of America’s descent into the Dark Ages under the Trump Administration.

    In an attempt to legitimize his initiative, Pruitt apparently has set forth a proposal to create what’s called a “red team-blue-team” exercise. But as several commentators already have pointed out, this is not how science is debated. Perhaps military tactics and strategies can be vetted in this manner, but in every case I’ve ever seen or in which I’ve participated in my professional career, science was accomplished and validated within a environment characterized by exhaustive peer review, uncontaminated by political bias.

    Both qualitative and quantitative scientific evidence of climate change abound. Witness:

    • the melting of Arctic sea ice, Greenland glaciers, and the Antarctic Continental Ice Sheet;

    • the accelerating rate at which sea level is rising (if you don’t believe the water is rising, ask the residents of the Solomon Islands in the South Pacific, who are having to abandon their homes), and


    • the ever-increasing wind intensities of cyclonic storms (cyclones and hurricanes), among other observations.

    According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate change, it’s “extremely likely” that the “dominant cause” of the Earth’s warming trend stems, since the 1950s, from humans and their greenhouse gas emissions.

    But climate change is not the only area where the Trump administration is attempting to shut down scientific inquiry. A recent report from the Union of Concerned Scientists titled “Sidelining Science from Day One” presents a frightening picture of how this presidency’s actions threaten both the public’s health and safety by “eroding the role of science in policy.” In concert with the GOP-led Congress, this administration has done nothing less than wage war on the scientific community by doing such things as (1) weakening federal advisory committees used by government agencies, (2) appointing conflicted individuals to scientific leadership positions, (3) leaving key science positions vacant, (4) revoking science-based safeguards, and, as noted, (5) misrepresenting climate science. As well, the administration has (6) undermined protections from hazards at home and work, (7) altered the scientific content on federal Websites, and (8) reduced public access to data (in February, for example, the government pulled all data on how animals are treated at about 9,000 zoos, circuses, research laboratories, dog breeding operations, and other facilities formerly found on the Agriculture Department’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) page). It’s even restricted our communications with scientists, as we saw when it refused to allow a senior climate scientist from meeting with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg on his visit to Glacier National Park earlier this year.

    As a nation, our strength is and always has been our ability to push the frontiers of science in transformative ways that improve the safety, health, and welfare of all citizens. Turning our back on what science is telling us now about the Earth in general and the climate in particular cannot end well for us as a nation or humankind as habitants of the third planet

    #NeverTrump Senator Susan Collins Says It’s “Difficult to Say” If Trump will Be GOP Nominee in 2020 (VIDEO)

    Jim Hoft Aug 22nd, 2017 8:28 am 45 Comments

    Four years ago Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) delivered the GOP Address on how Obamacare destroyed jobs and was harmful to the country.


    Collins spoke out against the Obamacare disaster for years.



    Then last month Collins was one of three Republican senators who refused to repeal Obamacare.
    Her vote blocked Obamacare repeal.

    Senator Collins did not vote for Trump in the 2016 election. She wrote in Paul Ryan instead.

    On Tuesday Senator Collins told MSNBC that it’s “difficult to say” if Trump will be the GOP nominee in 2020.

    What difference does that make? The cops aren't going to do anything about this. It's all part of the globalist plan. We are destined to fight and kill each other so the elite can watch us all thin the herd for them from the top of their ivory tower.

    Well, we are at the point where the only remedy to anything in this country, is armed rebellion. We have politicians who won't prosecute each other. All they do is yell and scream, and stomp their feet for a few days, or a week, then it all goes away. Pure theater. Charlie Rangel, the biggest tax cheat, writes the tax code, and on and on and on. We're wasting our breath on everything. Who's got the biggest set of figs, to get the party started? Eventually, someone will.

    lol - completely insane. Give your house to a black family

    The 10 "requests" an illiterate Black lives Matter has for White people

    http://dailycaller.com/2017/08/21/g...vist-makes-list-of-requests-for-white-people/

    1. White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty.

    2. White people, if you’re inheriting property you intend to sell upon acceptance, give it to a black or brown family. You’re bound to make that money in some other white privileged way.

    3. If you are a developer or realty owner of multi-family housing, build a sustainable complex in a black or brown blighted neighborhood and let black and brown people live in it for free.

    4. White people, if you can afford to downsize, give up the home you own to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.

    5. White people, if any of the people you intend to leave your property to are racists assholes, change the will, and will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.

    6. White people, re-budget your monthly so you can donate to black funds for land purchasing.

    7. White people, especially white women (because this is yaw specialty — Nosey Jenny and Meddling Kathy), get a racist fired. Yaw know what the fuck they be saying. You are complicit when you ignore them. Get your boss fired cause they racist too.

    8. Backing up No. 7, this should be easy but all those sheetless Klan, Nazi’s and Other lil’ dick-white men will all be returning to work. Get they ass fired. Call the police even: they look suspicious.

    9. OK, backing up No. 8, if any white person at your work, or as you enter in spaces and you overhear a white person praising the actions from yesterday, first, get a pic. Get their name and more info. Hell, find out where they work — Get Them Fired. But certainly address them, and, if you need to, you got hands: use them.

    10. Commit to two things: Fighting white supremacy where and how you can (this doesn’t mean taking up knitting, unless you’re making scarves for black and brown kids in need), and funding black and brown people and their work.

    OUCH! Antifa Member Gets Nailed in the Balls by Phoenix Police Tear Gas Canister (VIDEO)


    Joshua Caplan Aug 23rd, 2017 12:03 am 102 Comments

    Talk about a great shot! In an effort to disperse Trump protesters, Phoenix police fired off pepper balls and tear gas canisters. Of course, many protesters, a large number of them Antfa, chose to defy the police’s orders. An Antifa member paid the price for failing to disperse, getting nailed in the balls by a tear gas canister. That’ll leave a mark!

    ALL of these stupid staged tantrums and monument smashing (on orders of soros no doubt. these idiots could not come up with that one on their own) are the globalists drawing attention away from the biggest real news that is going on RIGHT NOW. Nobody is watching the birdy. Pay attention please.

    NAFTA is being renegotiated, it will most likely be cancelled. This is the biggest sword being buried in the guts of the globalists, bankers and deep state and it's a fight we must win.

    NAFTA was never about just US, MEX and Canada.
    From day one china has been running car parts, aircraft parts, electronics etc into mostly Mexico and slapping made in mexico or made in canada stickers on the boxes and shipping them all tax free into the US. Ponder that.
    Wonder why your new cars fall apart? All of the shit is chinese.

    Google chinese parts in US military equipment and it will help explain how our Navy ships keep getting run over by merchant ships.

    Now please imagine how many congressman over how many years have been paid off to allow this to happen and you will get an idea of how bad things really are, what Trump and company is fighting right now and how many millions of dirty dollars have been paid to the likes of boner, mccain, mcconnell and ryan.

    THIS is the story right now. Everything else is bullshit.


    President Trump Discusses NAFTA: “I think we’ll end up, probably, terminating NAFTA at some point”…
    Posted on August 23, 2017 by sundance

    At the end of the first round of NAFTA renegotiations, Sunday, I shared a confidence level of “3” on a 10 point scale; as to whether a deal was likely. [Explained Here]

    On Monday Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and U.S Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer debriefed President Trump the on the results of the first round (5 days). USTR Lighthizer and Secretary Ross were both at the White House during the eclipse viewing.

    On Tuesday, following that briefing, President Trump shares his opinion on NAFTA. WATCH:


    .

    Remember, this statement follows the discussions with Ross and Lighthizer a day earlier. It would appear that President Trump did not like the information they shared. Knowing that POTUS Trump isn’t going to accept or compromise on an economic deal that doesn’t fix the issues; and knowing he’s wanted to walk away from NAFTA in favor of bilateral trade deals from the outset; I might need to lower my confidence to a “1” or lower…

    @Irons Don't thank me, that gif was posted in the comment section, so I copied it here. All I did was re-name it appropriately.

    Twitter video never plays for me. Whenever I click play, it always says "the video could not be played", but it never says why. So I figure that just means twitter is crap.

    Trump's erstwhile supporters have much to account for
    • By RICHARD COHEN
    • 8 hrs ago

    The useful idiots are falling by the wayside. First came a few corporate big shots, and then some more, and then many, many more. Princes of Wall Street, richer and more important than any CEO, also left and then Julius Krein, a conservative intellectual and digital pamphleteer, retracted his support of Donald Trump in a New York Times op-ed and inevitably was hailed as a political Rip Van Winkle who had just woken up. He and the others slept too long.

    They have done their damage. Trump is in the White House, fulminating on Twitter, messing up foreign policy, mistaking critics for enemies, refusing to immediately and unequivocally condemn neo-Nazis, white racists and other assorted goons -- and, in general, failing to provide the nation with a scintilla of moral leadership. This will last until it can't any longer. There is only so much chaos a nation can stand.

    Meanwhile, the parts of the American corporate and political leadership who slummed with Trump and think that the quick shower of a repudiation statement will wipe them clean ought to think again. They are obliged to consider how they ever supported a person whose racism was apparent in his rabid conviction that Barack Obama had not been born in America and whose posse always contained so-called white nationalists. The surprise of Charlottesville is not that it happened, but that it took so long. Our president is neo-racist.

    It was also apparent to anyone that Trump lies with almost every breath. And yet some of the same people who knew the dark truth about Trump -- who would not do business with him, who would not lend him money and who, most importantly, would not raise a child to be like him -- supported him for president. Some, like Carl Icahn or Wilbur Ross, got in early, while others hung back until Trump won the GOP nomination. Having panicked at the prospect of Hillary Clinton winning the presidency, they embraced Trump.

    Anti-Hillaryism diseased their minds. It enabled them to hold her responsible for the deaths of Americans at Benghazi, Libya, and to obsess over her missing emails. She was a lousy candidate, sure, but her most serious criminal act was to frequently flash an insincere smile.

    Trump critics such as myself have been accused of living in a bubble. On the contrary, it is Trump's supporters in the 1 percent who breathed their own fumes. They believed in the Gordian Knot fantasy: the myth that a bold person could solve an intractable problem, as Alexander the Great did by not even attempting to untie the Gordian Knot but rather severing it with his sword. Trump's supporters felt that all that was needed was common sense or, better yet, something called "business sense." If Trump could run a business, he could, therefore, run the country.


    This myth was so strongly held that it overcame both logic and experience. It was an extension and a mockery of Ronald Reagan's simplistic belief that "Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem" and that all that was needed in a president was the zeal and cool nerves of a short-seller.

    Trump's total lack of character was brushed aside. So, too, was his utter lack of compassion. His high-powered supporters said nothing as he attacked the Khans, the Gold Star parents of an Army captain who was killed in Iraq. They were similarly mute when he denigrated John McCain's suffering as a POW in Vietnam and mocked a disabled reporter. They never asked him to prove he had donated a cent to charity.

    Trump railed against Mexicans and Muslims, bullied his fellow candidates, winked at his supporters in the odious alt-right, was caught boasting of an adolescent sexism, exhibited an astounding ignorance of just about everything he needed to know -- history and government -- and persisted in a pernicious campaign to delegitimize the mainstream media. The latter may be his only success.

    Trump's presidency will fail. Just don't ask me how and when. It will collapse because at its center is a hollow man, lacking ballast, whose chaos cannot be contained. In the meantime, those who supported him then but have now recanted need to consider what steered them so wrong. What compelled them to support a man whose ignorance, selfishness, egomania and abysmal character was so clear? Was it their lust for deregulation, lower taxes and a Wagnerian end to the Obama era? They slept -- but it was our nightmare.

    WOW! ESPN Pulls ASIAN Anchor from University of Virginia Game Because His Name Is “Robert Lee” (VIDEO)

    THIS IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!
    ESPN Pulled Asian Anchor “Robert Lee” from announcing the University of Virginia football game because his name is Robert Lee.


    Robert Lee is Asian.

    — NotKennyRogers (@NotKennyRogers) August 23, 2017



    Outkick reported:

    ESPN ISSUES OFFICIAL STATEMENT ON MOVING ROBERT LEE FROM VIRGINIA GAME:

    “We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name. In that moment it felt right to all parties. It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play by play for a football game has become an issue.”

    THIS IS NOT FROM THE ONION!
