    With the trump presidency it hard to know what in the hell is going on. Today on MSNBC they were speculating that Bannon resigned so that he could have more direct access to trump. If Bannon stayed he would be forced to get approval to see trump from John Kelly, but by quiting he does not have to report to Kelly and go direct to trump via phone, email, etc. And by leaving the WH, he's free, just like any american, to do, say, whatever he wants without it being directly connected to trump. In other words, he can do his job better\freer outside of WH than within. Objects for him (and trump) remain the same.

    Also, on Rachel Maddow, they had a reporter from The New Yorker magize that stated that trump wouldn't let Bannon go unless he, the president of US, got approval from the power men who are calling the shots. The inference is that trump is nothing more than a front man for those who have billions invested in Russia and other shady businesses. This is THEIR opportunity, they have control over the most powerful man in the world; he answers to them.

    Background reporting that suggests trump is being controlled by a modern day mafia. Powerful men (real billionaires) who run legitimate businesses, but have no ethical problems doing things that harm\threaten\intimidate people. "What a pretty wife you have, hope she stays pretty for a long long time, just like our friendship"

    In general this seems like an over the top conspiracy, but with trump, it is realistic to consider him having past business partners who are very shady, and they have dirt on him he never wants made public. All he has to do is a few favors, such having key people in his ear 24x7. "Our mutual friends would like..."

    Oh wat r u doin'? readin' alt left sites now?

    Like I said; the shit is only starting; Bannon will have more power than ever, as well knows now how the inside White House politics work. Thus he will use that to the full extend at Breitbart and don't forget Gorka and Miller will be his info channel.

    Also I wonder who will move into the vacant positions; if it is another general or Wall Street figure? Or an total military "coup"? Time will tell.

    I won't be surprised if illegal leaks will be traced back to these guys, and they are charged with federal crimes. These guys have access to billions of dollars worth of daily intel. Not suggesting they would actually attempt to sell it, just saying that is how valuable it is. WH-->leak t0 middle men --> sell\give\trade-->Russia

    Today Bannon told the Weekly Standard "The trump presidency is over".

    Bannon on the outside now means Trump will need to tow the line on his campaign promises, Bannon also plans to get nasty with congressional republicans, he can do that now that he's an outsider, but that won't stop Trump from dissing McConnell.

    Pundits are predicting that trump is going to be hardcore on the borderwall. If the budget put in front of him does not have billions in funding for his wall, he won't sign it. He'll argue that Mexico will pay for it "someday" because he'll make them pay for it. Or he'll argue that the wall will pay for itself by keeping out 10 of millions rapists, murders, drug dealers, gangs, etc, and thus crime in the US will drop soooo much that half of all US prisons be forced to close.

    trump at a future rally: "... After I build The Trump Super Wall, everywhere I go people will be asking me: 'Donald, where did all the crime go? ' and I'll tell them there is no more crime anywhere, even drug invested and bankrupt Chicago has zero crime because of my great wall; the police will have nothing to do anymore, they will be forced to give little girls tickets for jaywalking."

    I'd like to think that most of democrats would override Trump's veto or non signature of a bill with billions attached to it for a border wall. I'd also like to think that republicans, not a majority of them, would join democrats in overriding a presidential veto, because I don't believe GOP members are really supportive of a border wall, especially if Americans are going to pay for it. I don't believe it's fiscally feasible.

    Dock,don't forget on how Bannon and Trump got into the White House; lots of money from a "couple" of billionaires; one of them is pushing for the "wall" ; he's likely one of the "white christian superior" types. Don't forget quite a few "billionaires" are "crazy" and did not earn their money, because they had sound "minds". So what is happening in the "background" may determine the outcome.

    Bannon is a kid in a candy store. Since mid November he's had to be somewhat accountable. Now the restraints have been removed and he regained access of his old job...

    Inconveniently (for Bannon) turns out a huge percentage of us are anti hate.

    In their favor is a mastery of knowing how to push buttons. The speech writers who knew he had to name Nazi's and the KKK are the same who will smooth this over.

    Many in gov't. Spoke against his stance.

    I bet the White House "War room" is active 24/7 since Jan. 20. Polling every 2 hours and dissecting everything in any form of media. Nate Silver would be proud. Job number 1. Make it clear how our savior (DT) is the best of all time.

    Hope Perez enjoyed his breakfast.

    Morning Joy had an good discussion about Breitbart and Bannon; The "billionaire" Mercer is the "help" for him. Lots of add companies fled Breithart; but the "money" keeps coming in. He even wants to start Bannon TV. Thus people if the "billionaires" keep supporting "carbage" who is going to stop this?

    Bannon is all for Trump but he's now unbridled. He will attack Dems and others who don't support the R agenda. It will be a chaotic mess.

    From what I've read is that he will be attacking Republicans because they are in control and can pass legislation, where as the democrats have no power, so attacking\pressuring them does not accomplish much.
