Stephen Bannon is not a man to be trusted. He is the person behind the generation of “alternative facts” via Brietbart.com. But he is a man to be feared because he has Trump wrapped around his finger. Bannon was Trump’s Chief Adviser and one of the men really calling the shots behind the blathering puppet that is Trump. While at CPAC, Bannon revealed the sickening truth behind Trump’s agenda to destroy the American government as we know it.
As you know if you follow the news, Trump selected cabinet heads that are the antithesis of what a proper leader in their field should be. Betsy DeVos, for example, is an opponent to public education. She does not want to support the institution. She wants to eradicate it and crash it to the ground. And she is not alone. Every one of Trump’s cabinet members hope to destroy the institutions they are supposed to be leading.
Bannon explained the Trump’s agenda is the “deconstruction of the administrative state.”
This statement should spark fear in you and everyone you know who values law and order, safety and security.
Trump and the GOP puppeteers pulling his strings want the systems of taxes, regulations, trade pacts, and other safety measures to go away. They believe these institutions, which were put in place to protect the average citizen from people like Trump and his cabinet, should go away because they inhibit economic growth.
“If you look at these Cabinet nominees, they were selected for a reason, and that is deconstruction,” Bannon said in clear, straightforward language.
The extensions of the executive branch are in part the Department of Labor, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Department of Education. These were built to serve the interests of the American people. They are extremely complex. They are in place to help the people when Congress and the states fail to do so.
But Trump and his Cabinet are destroying the country from the inside out because they have a conservative agenda that has been proven, year over year, to be a failure.
Since he was booted from the White House in August, Bannon has predicted that Trump only has a thirty percent chance of finishing his four-year term.
Business Insider reported in October: “According to two of the sources, Bannon warned Trump several months ago about the possibility of getting removed from office via the 25th Amendment, prompting Trump to ask, ‘What’s that?’ A stipulation of the 25th Amendment allows the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet — that is, 13 of 24 Cabinet members — to vote the president out of office. Bannon reportedly considered it a more likely scenario than Trump’s impeachment.”
Avid supporters of Trump refuse to look at the facts. The president’s rhetoric blinds them to the truth that he is just playing them to achieve his megalomaniacal desire for people’s attention. And as news sources continue to report on his floundering and lousy dealing making, he is getting what he wants.
But hopefully Bannon’s prediction will come true, and Trump won’t make it through is full term nor get elected for a second.
