“Watch Me Pull A Rabbit…”

Screw-you, cha-cha-cha

Screw-you, cha-cha-cha

“…outta my ass.”

So while the entire media was focused on Trump-induced drama at the airports, what was going on elsewhere?

  • The Russian Usurper restructured the National Security Council (NSC) and created a position on it for senior aide and former Breitbart.com CEO Stephen K. Bannon.
  • Hair Führer specified that the director of national intelligence and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs will only attend principals committee meetings that pertain to their specific “responsibilities and expertise.”
  • Putin’s Poodle also conducted his first phone call with Russian Pres. Vladimir Putin.

…and all of this he did under the radar.

Kevin Drum at Mother Jones concluded that the chaos caused by Trump’s executive order had been part of the White House plan:

“Whatever else he is, Steve Bannon is a smart guy, and he had to know that this would produce turmoil at airports around the country and widespread condemnation from the press. In cases like this, the smart money is usually on incompetence, not malice. But this looks more like deliberate malice to me. Bannon wanted turmoil and condemnation. He wanted this executive order to get as much publicity as possible. He wanted the ACLU involved. He thinks this will be a PR win.”

And while that’s true that it was a PR-win with their Nazi base, I think ultimately it was to draw the press’ attention away from the points above. He’s not clever, and he’s certainly not smart, Trump only has one trick up his sleeve: distract, distract, distract.

    It really does remind my of Hitler favoring the advice of Nazi Party loyalists over military because he preferred their message. I also think they’ve gone straight into Führerbunker mode here.

    What is especially noteworthy is the utter cowardice of Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, who have said nothing about these grotesque developments.

      Ryan and McConnell are the worst sort of amoral cynics, Redhand. As long as they get to give money to the 1%, nothing else matters. And remember: they are the 1%. (Ryan born into it, and McConnell and his wife having grafted into it.)

      They will be enabling Trump up until the moment that they become a casualty.

        They have just become a casualty.
        In Bannon eyes and now Trumps mind, they are redundant and if Bannon has his way, Trump will go the same route.

        The Night of the Long Knives – Röhm Putsch, has begun.

    I used to think that Trump was a Trojan horse(‘s ass) to get Pence into the White House, now I think he was meant to get Bannon into the White House, and Bannon is even scarier than Pence.

      Interesting, but I don’t see a Constitutional route for Bannon. Also, I don’t think Trump cares about Dense at all.

    But Bannon is hypersmart, make no mistake.

    CNN is now floating a story about phase two of the ban, wherein all travelers with foreign passports must reveal their phone contacts and internet browsing habits in order to get approval for entry to the US.

    No way to know if this is real (certainly plausible, given the people involved), or if it’s a trap for CNN to fall into so they can be demonized again as purveyors of “false news”.

    Either way. Smart. Cunning. Merciless.

    “We don’t want your DNI and Joint Chiefs so-called facts getting in our way.” What could possibly go wrong?
