Sloppy Steve Slides Down the Greasy Pole of Power

Sloppy Stephen Bannon: Trump’s Dispensable Indispensable!
By now, almost everyone has watched the rise and fall of the imperious Stephen Bannon. He was the polymath narcissist who climbed up the slimy pole of politics all by himself. Yet, because of the colicky utterances of a six year old child he was ostracized from the White House, Breitbart, and the Mercer Foundation.

How did this all happen within the blink of an eye?

I don’t know him! Guess, I never will. Nor, do I wish him ill-will. However, the minute Bannon appeared on the stage of Republican politics with the ferocity and dedicated self-aggrandizement of a proctologist examining the entrails of life, Stephen was on a course of self-destruction.


I knew that his incessant history of manipulating people and organizations to his sole purpose—Goldman Sachs, Hollywood, Navy, Republican Politics, Mercer family—was simply a manifestation of an ego that had never really encountered humility or serious failure. For the most part, his history reads like a second-hand novel where the hero, a poor Southern Democrat from rural Virginia, vowed to ascend to the pinnacles of financial, political, and social success at all cost.
Bannon’s brash personality guided his egregious temperament full speed ahead, eliminating foe and friend alike. His personae is well–known to intelligence/ foreign policy operatives like myself. I have seen the Bannons over a forty year career in the USG, intelligence/ military services, and in Hollywood.

His modus operandi goes something like this:

  • He approaches a high value human target with self-deprecation and gratitude for the chance to be whatever [banker, naval officer, politician, editor].
  • The job is incidental to his need for him to express his self-inflated sense of self.
  • Once in position at a particular institution, he then unbridles his self-imposed constraints in order to devastate real or imagined enemies wherever they may be.
  • Next without any sense of propriety, he skewers anyone in his way. He makes certain that they are completely debased and humiliated to the point that there is in his mind no possibility of their eventually retaliating back at him.
  • More often than not, he fudges his failures in order to make them appear as a strategic unforeseen encumbrance.
  • Nothing is ever his fault.
  • In time, he confronts the person whom he wants to dominate…. Someone like Donald Trump whose own sense of self will tolerate insolence for a while until that particular annoying person is summarily discharged.
  • Trump and Bannon became DUELING NARCISSISTS! Bannon lost in a big, big way!  

Once he was dismissed from the White House, Bannon retreated to the den of inequity that he had not created Breitbart News—and assume the mantle of leadership. However, Breitbart, like most of what Bannon had been leading, was not a product of his own sweat and blood. It was created by the unfortunate Jewish Pacific Palisades [Calif.] founder, Andrew Breitbart, who had died of a heart attack at ungodly young age.

Today, like most institutions Bannon entered and left, he was asked to leave. Bannon is the personification of the egregious personalities who attempt to enter different worlds: banking, film making, publishing—with a half-assed approach to self-discipline and personal achievement. His major concern is not ‘what I have really created on my own’? His goal is ‘look at me and how much I have achieved thanks to the hard work of others.’

Finally, he found his match.

Trump tweets his way into a sullen force of  constant evaluation and retribution against anyone, family or friend, who might in any way diminish the luminescence of his perceived self-achievements. No one will get in Trump’s way to accrue the accolades that he feels he genuinely deserves. Trump needs no real audience to reassure him of his personal successes. He simply spouts out the simple fact of his achievements to a friendly crowd who, in turn, echoes his own praises to himself.

When a Bannon deprecates Trump, or his valued minions, Donald will strike ad infinitum until a Bannon is no longer viable as an entity anywhere other than the shadows from which he had originally emerged. Despite a seemingly above average intelligence, Bannon never learned the lesson that his increasing sense of self-worth would eventually confront reality. Not raised right!

Now, Bannon learns that no one ever cared about his blustering words and awkward appearances as the ruddy-faced, alcoholic Falstaff to the more serious members of the Trump administration. Bannon never realized that he was simply a small, insignificant player in a major Greek Tragedy which was fashioned from these prescient words:

“Hubris Ate Nemesis!”

Pride goes before the fall! I must admit that Bannon’s finest performance was his complete indifference/ignorance to his inevitable path of self-destruction!

  1. Chia Cha… Only problem is that Trump is now alone… Just how Bernie is. Even Bernie’s wife is compromised so he can be sure he will stay alone. Only two persons with charisma inside system who could pull up USA toward healthy dictatorship and populism, are isloated and alone… Just how founding fathers intdend – system of checks and balances. 🙂

      System is creating one huge mistake here, stage will become less popular because all actors are now behind stage and hidden. People hates that. When Ceasar was approched and asked what to do with restless plebs of Rome, Ceasar said to send galleys to Lybia and bring all what was needed. Officers asked: “Wheat for bread”? (as Lybia was big wheat producer back then), but Ceasar told them to bring just sand for colosseum.

    Actually Chia, many of us believe that DJT is far from alone. He moves forward with divine providence and despite the psychiatric assessments, that we use to describe our interactions and belief systems, he will forge a new tomorrow. Others we are all doomed to a communist and luciferian future.

      Trump and what he is doing in liberating all those abused kids is sign that there can be hope. Unlike in communist China.

      But if this guy is going to be new proper Bannon that west would finally be allowed to show that west care about own youth also (that was not allowed under marxist deals signed with China). Imagine, young white american in politics, and not one like Paul Ryan who wants to be older then oldest one (in mind).

  4. I thought S. Bannon was one of the Zionists, i.e. bad news. Anyways, his face looks like the type that if you make a joke with they are so serious about themself that they get angry at you.

    President Trump has learned well from the McMahons. Professional wrestling has taken over politics. The leftists have been fed poisoned meat from all directions. They can’t help it, like a dog to anti-freeze. They know they are fed lies, then lie to themselves out loud about it while the camera rolls. Massive implosion imminent. A fabulous disaster that will taste like fresh grapes.

    C. S. Lewis wrote in Mere Christianity that pride is the “anti-God” state, the position in which the ego and the self are directly opposed to God: “Unchastity, anger, greed, drunkenness, and all that, are mere fleabites in comparison: it was through Pride that the devil became the devil: Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind.”
