IT'S A COMMAND THEY CAN'T REFUSE!
Surely, you’re stunned that party bosses Steve Scalise and Kevin McCarthy, allegedly United States Congressmen, are standing in the way of their party, formerly known as Republicans, to approve criminal sanctions against once-indicted and now pardoned, Steve Bannon.

No refused offers needed. Just commands accepted.

Scalise claimed that the America people don’t want more partisan activities coming from Democrats. Mind you, he was perfectly fine with Benghazi, Clinton phone, investigations of Hunter and Joe Biden, the current Trump-inspired investigation of the FBI and DOJ. But, he’s simply not interested in determining to what extent his Godfather, Donald Trump and the family conspired to return “The Don” to the White House. He’s not concerned about the deaths of the Capitol Police. Nor is he concerned that he and his party are spreading dangerous lies about the past election, that our Democracy, our beacon of light throughout the world is in great peril of extinguishment. What the Don commands, he gets! His wishes are his demands.

Republicans claim that Nancy Pelosi is partisan, and that she disallowed republican participation in the January 6 investigation. This is fiction. Pelosi and the Democrats wanted a bipartisan commission of non-elected officials who could search for the truth. McCarthy sent an emissary to devise a plan. Mission was accomplished. The final plan established that neither party could subpoena another without approval from both sides of the coin. However, the Don said NO. No way does he want democratic dogs sniffing the crime scene.

So, Trump ordered and like Pavlovian dogs, Scalise and Speaker McCarthy responded. Their excuse for backtracking on the bipartisan commission was that the FBI and congressional committees were already investigating these facts. False. No congressional committee was investigating the origins and Trump’s involvement in the DC Massacre. They weren't obtaining information from the National Archives. They weren’t sending subpoenas to hostile witnesses, such as Bannon.

As a result, months ago, Pelosi had no choice but to go another route, launching the January 6 investigatory committee. She granted McCarthy five picks. He deliberately chose two members of Congress who essentially were known as Trump-obedients and sabotagers. Pelosi’s putting them on the panel would be like selecting Clemenza and Tessio to investigate the mafia. Even worse, at least one of the two, Jim Jordan, is an important witness to the conspiracy. Jordan and Trump spoke multiple times a day. In no time, he’d be passing along top secrets and strategies to the Don, like clockwork.

Once Pelosi declined, McCarthy, the ever-so-loyal lieutenant seized the opportunity. He pulled out his contribution and participation. He announced the committee as a witch hunt, a Pelosi railroad job. In effect, he said, “if Clemenza and Tessio ain’t participating, the hell with your committee”. What he never disclosed, however, is one tiny little fact. Pelosi approved other members of McCarthy’s wish list who could have joined the committee. But the cast was done.

McCarthy got what he wanted. He snookered Pelosi. Learning from his master, he gave Pelosi an offer she had to refuse and he could now go on record to lambaste the committee as another witch hunt. The three Pelosi-accepted republicans were never heard about again.

McCarthy succeeded in sullying the committee. He had zero interest in obtaining truths. His goal was to taint the proceedings with lies and fabrications, just as he did with the impeachments. All he had to do was call it unfair and biasd and his own family of subservients would surely follow.

It also has become clear why McCarthy and Scalise have killed all attempts to see truths. He also is a very important witness. He had that infamous phone call that he now says was no big deal. In addition, according to Kraken Powell, he and Scalise had prior knowledge of an attempt to take one last crack at the US Supreme Court, a last-second January 6 legal filing. However, they needed time. They needed a day or two for the court to respond to the emergency pleading. It became a race against the clock.

As the insurrectionists climbed the walls and were on the front lines trying to stop the certification, the Don and his legion were seeking delays of the Congressional proceedings. Trump and Giuliani even called around the horn trying to get members of the Senate to slow down the certification vote. Their ace in the hole was that Supreme Court Justice Alito would intervene in the election process and “Stop the Steal”.

Of course, Scalise, McCarthy and members of their House of Representatives have been claiming lately including today “move on, ignore the carnage, forget the importance of our democracy, investigate Pelosi”.

The Godfather has commanded. The family is doing the bidding.

Two-hundred and two (out of 211) House Republicans voted against sanctioning Bannon for his refusing a Congressional subpoena.

Those brave Congresspeople who rebelled should be forewarned. Don't be sleeping around any white horses.

BANNON STORM SMALLSteve Bannon appeared before the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday as part of its Russia inquiry. During his testimony, the White House, reportedly, decided what questions Bannon should, or shouldn’t, answer. The one that slipped through was Bannon’s admission that he had spoken to Reince Priebus, Sean Spicer, and legal spokesman Mark Corallo, about Donald Trump Jr.’s confounding campaign meeting in Trump Tower, with Russian actors, about the adoption of orphans –code for lifting sanctions.

The Dow just reached 25,000, the economy is booming, and ISIS has been decimated, so of course the news media is talking about none of these stories. The latest Donald Trump frenzy surrounds the new book, Fire and Fury, which is basically a full-frontal attack on the President. The author, Michael Wolff, has a history of questionable journalism. Several of the people quoted in this book, such as former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Vogue editor Anna Wintour and close Trump friend Thomas Barrack, Jr. have totally denied making the statements the author has attributed to them.

However, one person who is not disputing any of the extensive quotes in the book is former Trump campaign adviser and White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. The author relied on Bannon for a large part of the material in the trashy book of Trump bashing.

humbug trumpDonald Trump is promising that he and his Republican gang of reindeers will bestow a big beautiful Christmas gift to us all--since presumably we have been nice rather than naughty.  The present?  None other than a whopping oversized tax reform package, covered with beautiful ribbons, silk-wrapped and all.

REPUBBANNON MITCHWelcome to the Jeff Crouere YouTube channel.  I'm Jeff Crouere. 

There is a war going on in the Republican Party.  The establishment is led by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell--those who have been denizens of the swamp for decades.

breitbarthead 3More and more, the discussion has turned to the stability of President Donald Trump.

The months of July and August have been horrendous so far for those supporting the Trump White House..  Top Trump staff such a Reince Priebus and now Steve Bannon have been canned. Sean Spicer was replaced by Mooch who certainly had no smooth sailing either.  Then, the emotional controversies related to the KKK and the Nazis blew up in Trump's face, leaving observers wondering if there is any sanity remaining.

trumpernaggerArnold Schwarzenegger, the Barbarian, is back in the news. Following Steve Bannon’s walk out the White House front door a Breitbart News’ senior editor-at-large wrote that President Donald Trump risked becoming “Schwarzenegger 2.0.” It was meant to be an insult, but it shouldn’t be because “Schwarzenegger 1.0.” wasn’t such a bad thing, though it started out very oddly, indeed, as part of recall effort of Governor Gray Davis who just, months before, had won a 2nd term.

trump bannon2 7Steve Bannon is over at the White House and the future promises to be bloody.  According to Axios, it appears the decision was made earlier, Bannon was informed and the resignation would go into effect today.

The question now is, who will be doing the shooting, who will be the target and if President Trump will be in the crosshairs or, with his being forced out, if his presidency will be collateral damage.
