Trump’s idea-man Steve Bannon X-rays NY Times’ skull: empty – Jon Rappoport

A few days ago, the NY Times interviewed Trump’s special counselor, Steve Bannon. Bannon wasted no time:

“The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for awhile.”

“The media here is the opposition party. They don’t understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States.”

“The elite media got it [their election prediction] dead wrong, 100 percent dead wrong…a humiliating defeat that they will never wash away, that will always be there.”

“The mainstream media has not fired or terminated anyone associated with following our [Trump] campaign. Look at the Twitter feeds of those people [reporters]: they were outright activists of the Clinton campaign.”

“That’s why you [the NY Times and other press outlets] have no power. You were humiliated.”

The Times asked Bannon if he thought Sean Spicer, Trump’s new press secretary, had “lost credibility with the media.”

Bannon said: “Are you kidding me? We think that’s a badge of honor… The media has zero integrity, zero intelligence, and no hard work. You’re the opposition party. Not the Democratic Party. You’re the opposition party. The media’s the opposition party.”

The Times thought they were being clever by getting Bannon’s quotes “on the record.” They knew he would attack the press, and they knew their loyal readers would tsk-tsk and shake their heads as they sipped their morning coffees. O dear, o my, who is this wild man Bannon lashing out at our beloved newspaper?

Bannon knows the game. He understands the Times and the Washington Post, and the rest of the media echo-chamber that bounces agreed-upon stories among themselves. That’s what they did during the presidential campaign, and despite their best efforts, Globalist queen, Hillary Clinton, hit the skids and ended up back in Chappaqua, the Oval Office forever out of her reach. Cry for her, America.

Bannon is right. The media is the opposition party. They oppose the people’s right to know, on hundreds of major stories, and whether you love or hate Donald Trump, the media are criminal rogues in a long-running stage play.

The media believe an election campaign is an event they own. It’s their property. They can twist it any which way.

If something can be printed on page one and put on the nightly news, the media claim ownership. This is why ABC is asserting that their recent interview with Trump cannot be aired by ANYONE after February 1. ABC owns history. They can erase it.

Sound familiar? It’s straight out of Orwell’s 1984.

And hold on: since Trump’s election, Orwell’s novel has jumped to number one on Amazon’s list of best sellers. Number one. Its publisher, Penguin, has ordered a new print run of 75,000 to keep up with the demand. 47,000 copies have been sold since Trump won the election.

My God, the basket of deplorables can read.

Something’s happening, Mr. NY Times, and you don’t know what it is.

You’re clueless. You’re outflanked. You’re throwing power-puff punches in the dark.

What’s your next move? An interview with Beelzebub, who says he voted for Trump?

My guess is you’ve got a team down in Mexico right now, talking to your principal investor, billionaire Carlos Slim, begging him for more money to refinance the refinance of your debt, so you can keep paddling along in your vast sea of red ink.

Meanwhile, more and more people will be reading Orwell’s 1984 and identifying you as the Ministry of Truth.

Even readers from Hillary’s camp, taken in by your claim that fake news brought her down, will discover, when they read 1984, that the prime number one faker is the State media apparatus, not 50,000 independent outlets.

You, the NY Times, have been THE State media apparatus for a long, long time.

  1. MSM still does not get it? Instead of looking in the proverbial mirror and trying to re-find itself it is doubling down and all political and as Bannon said the OPPOSITION PARTY to Trump. News media is not suppose to be a political opposition party or conversely a butt kisser to the government of the day.

    MSM does not get it. It has been hi-jacked by liberal, socialist elites, professors, pundits and celebrities who feel self-righteous as well as being pushed by globalist elites who see them all as useful stooges.

    Middle America, Main street America (and much of the like minded free world class of citizens), the guys/gals who go to work with a lunch box or brown bag, or as business persons with a brief case for much of this group no longer buy these people’s propaganda. With each doubling down against first Trump and his admin, but also against the greatest society to ever be on Earth, Western Developed World, notably post WWII, these Joe’s, Mary’s, Tom’s, Linda’s etc just pull further away from this toxic, liberal/socialist/self-righteous ideology.

    In the USA the Democrats, cannot accept they put the wrong person to run for the election. They still fail to see her divisiveness, elitism, evilness, hate and anti-American ways was not going to go well. They blame first white males but they know white males alone did not give Trump the W.H. So now Democrat elites, self-loathing whites, and visible minorities have LOST most of the white male (productive white men) vote (probably for a generation or more) but in trying to exclude “Whitey” as they say now are LAUGHABLY!!! targeting productive/educated white women who voted more for Trump than Hillary.

    Vilifying white men as the problem is bad enough for Democrats and liberal elites. Ripping at white women will mean the Democrats likely not seeing inside the W.H. for a generation or more… JUST YOU ALL WATCH!

    As Trump keeps winning more than losing as he is not Jesus incarnate, for middle America and all who espouse for American values (and people in nations outside who trust general American values over others first) and abilities to get ahead, more and more support will evacuate what will be a Democrat party in trouble and we will see liberal/socialist elites and their idiot loud mouth HEADS CONTINUE TO PROVERBIALLY EXPLODE . Though I quite enjoy the thought of the movie SCANNERS while picturing Pelosi, Warren, Wrangle, Jackson, Sanders, Sharpton, Clinton, Schumer, Soros, Musk, Zuckerberg, all of the cackling hens on THE VIEW, those liberal elites at CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, NPR, most University Profs, and such in my mind heads actually explode.

    I do not want Trump butt kissing, if he messes up, HOLD HIM TO ACCOUNT! But if he wins and I feel he will win more than lose then dammit CHAMPION HIM!
