No Matter How Cynical I Get, I Just Can’t Keep Up

Bannon, y’all.

The Washington Post did a big, long, documented, well researched story explaining how Bannon used loopholes and felonies to make himself one rich sumbitch.  Take the time to read it but be aware that your jaw will drop and hit your keyboard so be careful.  Bannon set up non-profits to funnel money to himself and friends.

Among the fun parts of the article is this:

Bannon, Schweizer and Robinson were linked through nonprofit organizations and filmmaking work. Bannon and Schweizer had made the film about President Ronald Reagan together in 2004; more recently, they were colleagues at Breitbart News. Schweizer sat on the board of Robinson’s Young America’s Foundation, which had paid Bannon $404,904 to produce films in 2010 and 2011, documents show, and would pay him almost $173,000 in 2012.

In the document seeking tax-exempt status for the GAI [Government Accountability Institute, a non-profit famed by Bannon], Bannon signed a document under penalty of perjury repeatedly attesting that each of them “has no family or business relationships with any other persons involved with GAI.”

A GAI spokeswoman told The Post that the relationships were later disclosed in the group’s annual filing with the IRS — submitted in November 2013, nine months after the GAI’s tax-exempt status was approved.

Charities are required to disclose business relationships among their directors on their initial applications for tax exemption so that the IRS can examine whether the organization is being formed for a proper public purpose.

So, there you have it.  Perjury. And ironically, no accountability.

Thanks to Alfredo over at the Dairy Queen for the heads up.

A note from Alfredo before the lunchtime rush: That’s why Republicns spent the last eight years cutting the budget of the IRS and trying to impeach the IRS Commissioner – so there would never be an investigation of the far right’s extensive use of 501(c)(3)s to elect Republican presidents and ensure a permanent conservative majority on the Supreme Court.


Well, Pick My Jaw Up Off The Ground, Mable, Before a Cat Walks In My Mouth

Look, all I can figure is that he grabbed Bannon by the pussy and is now being extorted.

The New York Times, tucked neatly in a long story so that most people will overlook it.

Mr. Priebus bristles at the perception that he occupies a diminished perch in the West Wing pecking order compared with previous chiefs. But for the moment, Mr. Bannon remains the president’s dominant adviser, despite Mr. Trump’s anger that he was not fully briefed on details of the executive order he signed giving his chief strategist a seat on the National Security Council, a greater source of frustration to the president than the fallout from the travel ban.

(Italics are mine because I can’t stop reading that sentence over and over and over.)

Wait a minute. Are they saying that Bannon put himself on the National Security Council?  Without Trump’s permission? And that Trump has no idea what he’s signing? Hellfire, even Radar O’Reilly didn’t have the gall to do that.

On another topic: I know you’re not supposed to make fun of the way people look.  But, Bannon looks like he smells bad.  And you get the idea that he’s not just a slob himself but that he’s a slob at home, too.  I will bet you my best pair of pink boots that the worst job in America is the cleaning crew at Bannon’s home. I shiver just thinking about it.

Somebody needs to send this guy back to Breitbart and the subhuman culture over there where people don’t pick their noses and wipe it on their dinner napkin.

Thanks to Deb for the heads up.

UPDATE: Bannon Registered to Vote in Two States

January 25, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: 2016 Election, Trump

UPDATED: Not only is Steve Bannon and Tiffany Cheeto registered to vote in two states, it’s now come to light that Steve Mnuchin, nominated to be TREASURY SECRETARY, is also registered to vote in New York and California.  Is it possible to be so goddam rich (sorry, Momma) that you can’t remember where you live?  This has entertainment written all over it.

Steve Bannon, that charming white supremacist from Breitbart who is now co-infesting the White House, is registered to vote in Florida and in New York.  He voted absentee in New York in November, no mention of if he also voted in Florida.  Also, in an ironic twist, Tiffany Cheeto, one of the daughters, is also registered in 2 states, Pennsylvania and New York.  Ol’ TwitterFinger has been ranting on his favorite medium for 4 days now about voter fraud.  It would be a shame if his Lead Orc and his daughter get caught up in the fraud investigation.

Glass houses, anyone?

Twitter Joins Google and Facebook in Leading from the Rear

November 16, 2016 By: El Jefe Category: 2016 Election

Today, Twitter announced it was suspending alt-right twitter accounts.  Alt-right, you say?  You know, those guys who hate everything: women, African-Americans…hmm…It’s actually easier to say what they support, twitterwhich is white supremacists.  White supremacists with guns.  Since Steve Bannon of Breitbart joined the Cheeto campaign and is now White House chief advisor to… I just can’t say it – to Him, the alt-right has spilled out into the public arena spreading their racist, misogynist, and hate filled rhetoric all over social media.  Yesterday, a week after the elections, Google and Facebook decided it was time to close the barn door, now that the entire herd of horses got out last Tuesday.  Twitter followed suit today, joining the other social media company at the back of the pack, cancelling hundreds of alt-right accounts spewing the same hateful rhetoric.

Thanks, Twitter, for helping us out and being so timely.  (That was sarcasm.)

Two Pigs in a Poke

New Appointments to Lead White House Staff

New Appointments to Lead White House Staff

Yesterday, Cheeto Jesus appointed his two top strategists for the coming January 20th Apocalypse.  What was striking about these appointments was not only their similarity – they’re both well known pigs; but also their differences – outside pig versus inside pig.  The outside pig is Steve Bannon, CEO of that den of serial liars called Breitbart “News”; the inside pig is RNC chairman and serial loudmouth, Reince Priebus.  Cheeto Jesus couldn’t have chosen a worse pair to run the White House except for maybe someone like Hannibal Lector or Freddy Krueger.  The choice of these two characters is shocking, but not surprising.
