Of Course Steve Bannon and January 6 Fans Are Cheering on the Brazilian Insurrection – Mother Jones

Should we be surprised that some Americans want a Banana Republic

Steve Bannon and others involved in the January 6, 2021 attack on Congress lauded supporters of former Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro as they stormed government buildings in their capital on Sunday. The cheerleading showed that far-right supporters of Donald Trump’s Big Lie are not merely unrepentant but eager to continue exporting their opposition to democratic norms. “Brazilian Freedom Fighters,”

Bannon, wrote Sunday on the right-wing social media app Gettr. His comment follows months of vocal support on his War Room podcast for Bolsonaro supporters who have camped out in Brazil to protest his defeat in October’s elections. Bannon has said that he is directly advising the former president’s son, Brazilian congressman Eduardo Bolsonaro. The younger Bolsonaro has touted Bannon’s calls for his father, who is reportedly now in Florida, not to accept defeat.

But Bannon wanted to talk. He explained repeatedly that Trump would announce early that he had won and would suggest that any apparent Biden victory had resulted from fraud. “He’s just gonna go in—remember, this is just with like 20 percent of the vote counted, Trump’s just gonna walk in and go, ‘I’m the winner,’” Bannon said.

The verdict by the jury of eight men and four women, after less than three hours of deliberations, marked the first successful prosecution for contempt of Congress since 1974, when a judge found G. Gordon Liddy, a conspirator in the Watergate scandal that prompted president Richard Nixon’s resignation, guilty.

Steve Bannon Seems Very, Very Worried Trump Will Be Indicted

Julian Assange has been imprisoned for a decade for publishing the truth he didn’t steal. How is this guy still walking free?

By NewsHound Ellen — June 11, 2022 Bannon’s fever dreams of impeaching President Joe Biden and destroying American institutions is nothing new. But on his podcast (he hates having it called a podcast), he sounded especially triggered by the hearings.

BANNON: Trump won the presidency and he is the legitimate president of the United States and your guy’s illegitimate and the American people are awakening to that. And we don’t care what you have to say and I dare Merrick Garland to take that crap there last night and try to indict Donald J. Trump. We dare you, ’cause we will impeach. We’re winning in November, and we’re gonna impeach you and everybody around you. F**k – screw the White House. We’re going to impeach you and everybody at DOJ.

So what has Bannon so worried? Was it Ivanka saying she “accepted” Trump’s attorney general calling “bulls**t” on the stolen election claims? Liz Cheney teasing that “multiple” congressmen sought pardons from Trump over their role in the January 6th insurrection?

Or are we going to learn some very interesting information about Bannon, who got a suspicious pardon from Donald Trump after swindling millions of their supporters over the “non profit” that promised to build the wall that Mexico was supposed to pay for?

Putin Invaded Ukraine, and Steve Bannon Says That’s a Good Reason to Impeach Biden – Mother Jones

America’s Leninist’s and Trump’s view of change was to trash the old and rebuild a new Bureacracy in America from the ground up. However first and foremost was to take over the election process itself. Trump never stopped taking Bannon’s advice and still does today. Putin Orban Erdogen all dictators control elections.Thats what saved America in 2020.

On Thursday, Steve Bannon, the former Trump administration official and 2020 election results denier, turned his podcast into a litany of grievances against President Joe Biden, the Clintons, and the other usual targets. Then he called for impeachment and praised Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Former Trump Adviser Steve Bannon Backs ‘Anti-Woke’ Vladimir Putin

Steve Bannon Vladimir Putin anti-woke LGBTQ Russia

Leninist and advisor to Trump is solely intent on tearing down America’s political and bureaucratic institutions the foundation on which the great 450-year American experiment of Democracy was built. Bannon is no Marxist or Socialist who believe in a greater and common good, but only in creating chaos for the purpose of oligarchic and complete totalitarian rule. Needless to say he like Trump loves Putin. If either he or Trump did what they are doing inAmerica in Russian Putinania they’d be assassinated or sitting in a Gulag like Putin’s opposition Navalny. Yes, American Democracy is flawed in so many ways it’s what allows these maggots the freedom but spends  millions hunting down Julian Assange.

Steve Bannon, former advisor to ex-President Donald Trump, said Americans should support “anti-woke” Russian President Vladimir Putin because of Putin’s long history of anti-LGBTQ politics. Bannon praised Putin several hours before the Russian leader launched an invasion of Ukraine. His commendation followed accolades for Putin from Trump and other conservatives. “Putin ain’t woke. He is anti-woke,” Bannon said to private military contractor Erik Prince during the Wednesday broadcast of War Room, Bannon’s show on Real America’s Voice, a right-leaning media network.

On YouTube, right-wing candidates are using appearances from Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast to campaign for office | Media Matters for America

Many of the War Room clips uploaded by candidates effectively circumvent YouTube’s already weak ban of the podcast and contain apparent violations by spreading election misinformation. Now, right-wing candidates at the local and national levels are flocking to Bannon’s show to promote their 2022 campaigns and uploading the clips to their own YouTube channels. They often express their support for the lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen, a critical “litmus test” for Republican candidates to demonstrate their loyalty to the most extreme demands of Bannon’s hardcore right-wing audience. Many of the candidates Bannon throws his support behind and who appear on his show are linked to the QAnon conspiracy theory, which has also been banned on YouTube. Here are the GOP candidates using their War Room appearances to campaign for office on YouTube, totaling 191,173 views total:

Steve Bannon Sends A Message To MAGA: Stand By

Where has America’s Democratic System taken it. To ultimate never-ending chaos. It’s a system much admired by Australia’s LNP because it allows for minority rule. Democracy can only exist when with elections comes the acceptance of loss. In America there isn’t currently an acknowledgement of loss but a disservice by the Republicans to the people and a total loss of trust in their political sysytem. There is only one Democratic Party in America.

He’ll use this as a fundraising tool and more fuel for his wingnut grievance brand of politics. At one point, Bannon upped the absurdity by screaming he was fighting for liberals and their rights of free speech. Bannon, like all of the MAGA culprits that were involved with the insurrection, cares nothing for the rule of law, instead of setting up a fascist regime set up to stifle all free speech in service of an egomaniacal man-baby.

Leading up to January 6, Steve Bannon publicly bragged about his behind-the-scene role fomenting the insurrection | Media Matters for America

Bannon in front of Jan 6 insurrection

In the days before the January 6 insurrection, former Trump adviser Steve Bannon bragged on his podcast about his behind-the-scenes efforts to undermine the results of the 2020 presidential election. These claims include calls and meetings he joined with conservative lawyer John Eastman and Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who were then running the Trump legal team’s “war room” out of the Willard Hotel in downtown Washington, D.C., where allies conspired to advance crackpot legal theories and misinformation campaigns aimed at stealing the 2020 presidential election from Joe Biden. At one point, Bannon suggested the team at the Willard Hotel solicited bail on behalf of Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio, who had been arrested in Washington, D.C., the day before the insurrection. A subpoena issued by Rep. Bennie Thompson, chair of the select committee investigating the January 6 attack, cited Bannon’s involvement at the Willard as relevant to the inquiry. After Bannon failed to comply, the House voted to hold him in criminal contempt of Congress and referred the matter to the Justice Department for prosecution.  A Media Matters review has found that in addition to repeatedly boasting abo

Heeding Steve Bannon’s Call, Election Deniers Organize to Seize Control of the GOP—and Reshape America’s Elections – Mother Jones

One of the loudest voices urging Donald Trump’s supporters to push for overturning the presidential election results was Steve Bannon. “We’re on the point of attack,” Bannon, a former Trump adviser and far-right nationalist, pledged on his popular podcast on Jan. 5. “All hell will break loose tomorrow.” The next morning, as thousands massed on the National Mall for a rally that turned into an attack on the Capitol, Bannon fired up his listeners: “It’s them against us. Who can impose their will on the other side?” When the insurrection failed, Bannon continued his campaign for his former boss by other means. On his “War Room” podcast, which has tens of millions of downloads, Bannon said President Trump lost because the Republican Party sold him out. “This is your call to action,” Bannon said in February, a few weeks after Trump had pardoned him of federal fraud charges. The solution, Bannon announced, was to seize control of the GOP from the bottom up. Listeners should flood into the lowest rung of the party structure: the precincts. “It’s going to be a fight, but this is a fight that must be won, we don’t have an option,” Bannon said on his show in May. “We’re going to take this

Steve Bannon’s Prediction of a Trump Election Day Win Is Premised on Ignorance | The Smirking Chimp

One of President Trump’s most loyal propagandists is predicting that Trump will claim victory on election night as soon as he is ahead among Election Day voters. But that scenario is based on a misconception of how all ballots are counted and the early returns are compiled, according to election and legal experts.

In an exclusive interview with Four Corners, Mr Bannon identified Australia as the “canary in the mineshaft” — a warning of the consequences of not standing up to China.

“Australia can show you when good and decent people kind of play by the rules and the next thing they look around and many of the economic resources and economic assets of a country are owned by another country,” he said.

  • Mr Bannon plans on taking his economic nationalist message to Australia before the next election
  • He says Mr Trump confronting China was key to his successful appeal to voters
  • He rejects the idea his ideology is racist, saying US workers are ‘finally standing up for themselves’

So is Bannon miscalculating horribly and simply out of his gourd? No. He’s not thinking in the conventional terms of Republicans versus Democrats; he’s thinking that “any disruption is a good thing, and that the best way to get what he wants — a white-centered, nationalist America — is to blow up the establishment,” the Republican strategist said. Other Republican operatives concurred.
