reading thru the Govts evidence, these guys are royally screwed.  Prosecution has all their messages backwards and forwards about how to deceive by hiding payments to themselves.

 

What's worse than fundraising by lying to Political supporters and taking advantage of their naivety

 

One of their biggest donors was a 7-year-old boy, who ran a lemonade stand selling “Patriot Lemonade” and “Freedom Hot Chocolate”





populism, the most important and misunderstood movement of our time

What about his "wonderful, beautiful" (ridiculous) wall? Didn't some of that get built? And Mexico paid for it, or so he says.

 

 

I think that some of the wall got built but then it got blown over?

Is that some kind of rhetorical question?

 

Because that's standard operating procedure for many political parties in democratic nations globally, and it's pretty much the same model as used by many churches to "fleece the flock".

 

Caught having his "fingers in the till" is where Bannon finally came unstuck, actually pretty minor compared with Bannon's true (but unable to be prosecuted) crimes against humanity:

 

Advocating and recruiting for hard-right movements globally, pushing notions such as "the great replacement" lie, allying himself with a network of neo-fascists.  Ultimately responsible / a protege for atrocities such as the one committed on my doorstep 18 months ago. 

 

Influenced Trump to pull the US out of the Paris Climate Agreement, thus deliberately sabotaging the possibility of unified global action.

 

He is a filthy piece of scum, has been for years, and the US "mainstream media" failed their country and the world by not having the guts to expose exactly what he is and exactly what his agenda is, and how he's worked to undermine democracy. Same applies to fascists like Steve Miller in the White House, the media has failed to warn the public of the threat.

Not mentioned in the article is how Bannon "drained the swamp" into the ocean.

Steve Bannon was arrested on a a wanted Chinese millionaires 51-Foot super yacht. So he seems to like rich Chinese, China being an American antagonist, but hate poor hard working Mexicans, Mexico being America's ally.



Steve Bannon allegedly spent his ill gotten gains on a boat used in a Trump boat parade.

I think the boat owned by the Chinese m/billionaire wanted by the Chinese authorities to face rape and corruption charges is considerably bigger than 51 feet.

Here's an accidentally honest Trump supporter's boat:

BBC News - Trump visits Kenosha to back police after shooting

 

today

 


US President Donald Trump has visited Kenosha, Wisconsin to back law enforcement after the police shooting of a black man sparked civil strife.

 

The Republican president blamed "domestic terror" for the "destruction" in the Midwestern city.

 

Kenosha saw days of violence after police shot Jacob Blake in the back and left him paralysed on 23 August.

 

Opinion polls show Mr Trump is narrowing Democratic rival Joe Biden's lead ahead of November's election.

 

The president is pushing a strong "law and order" message. Mr Biden has accused Mr Trump of stoking racial division.

 

"Fires are burning and we have a president who fans the flames rather than fighting the flames," the former US vice-president said ahead of Tuesday's trip. ...

At least the bits that hadn't already been stolen by Mexicans for their houses...

It's "almost irrefutable fact" that Dolfie was being administered methamphetamine (and a lot of other drugs) by his doctor.

 

 

It was also readily available to the public under the name Pervitin, families would send husbands/sons at the front the stuff to keep them going. Hitler though was a special case, like some of Trump's doctors Morell was a complete quack and essentially used Hitler as a guinea pig for his quackery.

I think it was Trevor Noah who made the observation that Bannon looks like "someone wearing someone else's skin", which is a pretty good description.
