The very search reveals that those espousing it cannot quite believe people would vote for Trump of their own accord. They're wrong. The dissonance of modern political discourse had become intolerable. Obama: Terrorism has nothing to do with Islam. Obama: We have killed over 10,000 terrorists on my watch.Its the intrigue Kevin
It does and it doesn't. The system is robust enough to protect against disaster. They are unlikely to go on foreign adventures. They'll piss off the left for a bit and probably cause damage by too much deregulation. The alternative being worse IMO.Does Bannon & Co involved directly with Trump at the top of the White House concern you at all? Just asking ...
Meet Robert Mercer, the Mysterious Billionaire Benefactor of Breitbarthttps://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/19/us/politics/robert-mercer-donald-trump-donor.html?_r=0
The Mercers put that rag end Conway on the team.
Bannon critics can apparently blame Rebekah ( MERCER ); she pushed Trump to bring him on board, the Republican fundraising insider says. Her ties with Bannon go back a few years or more. They served together as officers of at least two nonprofits, Reclaim New York and the Government Accountability Institute. They have also produced at least one documentary together, Clinton Cash, a fearmongering look at the Clinton family’s finances. It was also Rebekah who convinced Trump to hire Conway, according to the fundraising insider. “She is like her dad,” says the Media Research Center’s Bozell. “She understands issues, she understands people, she has a very good read on what’s real and what’s BS.”
Sebastian Gorka Wiki - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sebastian_GorkaJulia Hahn, who covered immigration issues for Breitbart through an aggressively anti-immigration lens, has been named special assistant to the president ..
Sebastian Gorka, the site's national security editor and a policy consultant on Trump's presidential campaign, has joined the Trump White House in a yet-to-be-announced role ..
Yet this war is eminently winnable if we remove our ideological blinders, accurately name our enemy, and draw up a strategy to defeat him. So says Dr. Sebastian Gorka, one of the most experienced and sought-after authorities on counterterrorism. Our enemy is not “terror” or “violent extremism.” Our enemy is the global jihadi movement, a modern totalitarian ideology rooted in the doctrines and martial history of Islam. Taking his cue from the formerly top-secret analyses that shaped the U.S. response to the communist threat, Dr. Gorka has produced a compelling profile of the jihadi movement—its mind and motivation—and a plan to defeat it.
While the Koch brothers are libertarian ideologues and fellow right-wing billionaire Sheldon Adelson is singularly focused on the state of Israel and his gambling empire, the Mercers are something else entirely. They are fringe kooks with a vast fortune and a willingness to back other fringe kooks, including Steve Bannon. Rebekah Mercer was a director of his Government Accountability Institute propaganda outfit, and the family has heavily funded Breitbart News.
Both Mercers have spent tens of millions on various right-wing candidates and institutions in recent years, including establishment organizations like the Heritage Foundation and the Cato Institute. In the Republican primaries they backed Sen. Ted Cruz with the Keep the Promise super PAC and later the Defeat Crooked Hillary PAC. Both of those groups employed Kellyanne Conway and David Bossie, who later joined the Trump campaign alongside Steve Bannon, reportedly at Rebekah Mercer’s urging.

The most insidious "mysterious billionaire sugar daddy" that needs your attention is George Soros.Equinox ... Believe it or not I am not siding with one or the other here. However TRUMP won and is now President. Who What funded Hillary is of less interest.
I am also very interested in this Bannon / Breitbart link with Trump. This seems to tell us the possible history of this.
Again I restate .. I am not coming from a "far left cannot conceive of people voting Trump" perspective here. I think we already discussed my "intrigue" here ... The Mercer / Bannon / breitbart connections and why they are in the Whitehouse. Nothing to really do with who voted for Trump though Mercers cash and his DATA COMPANY CAMBRIDGE ANALYTICS seems to have helped Trump over the line big time.1. That's Salon.com
2. I think I'm right when I say this is just Koch Brothers redux.
The far left cannot conceive of people voting Trump. So relief from reality is sought in conspiracy. They did this under Bush. Don't you remember?
The media funded him by giving him $3 billion free exposure.What Does the Billionaire Family Backing Donald Trump Really Want?

Meet Robert Mercer, the Mysterious Billionaire Benefactor of Breitbart
As they say .. follow the money. Interesting reading. Thought I would post this AS A SEPERATE thread because it is a specific topic around Trump, something I had not heard of, that is, WHO funded him. Naively, I always thought he funded himself alone, looks like thats not the case?
Both articles also detail the history and links between Breitbart / Bannon and Trump.
Interested in your thoughts ..
This George O Soros???The most insidious "mysterious billionaire sugar daddy" that needs your attention is George Soros.
Right. So focus on the idiotic policy decisions. Not on hidden-hand stuff.Again I restate .. I am not coming from a "far left cannot conceive of people voting Trump" perspective here. I think we already discussed my "intrigue" here ... The Mercer / Bannon / breitbart connections and why they are in the Whitehouse. Nothing to really do with who voted for Trump though Mercers cash and his DATA COMPANY CAMBRIDGE ANALYTICS seems to have helped Trump over the line big time.
I am no Trump fan, but I am fed up of the hysteria. I would be of the opinion that the Clinton supporters / the "losers" should just move on. Trump is the president, deal with that BUT dont give him a free pass. Let the real work of goverance proceed and let normal checks and balances take care of any anomalies that may arise.

The Libtard Left inhabit a world of their own.The media was anti Trump so please explain how they helped him ?
90%+ of that "free exposure" was completely biased hit pieces and very often lies, false facts or manufactured outrage.
OtJ is right. The media gave him coverage they thought would be damaging. As it turned out, it was grist to his mill.The media was anti Trump so please explain how they helped him ?
