Because this is their plan: to take away your will to vote so they can stay in power and pass whatever bill funding themselves they want.So tell me Steve Bannon - if we do not have Rule of Law over our own Ballot Box, why should we waste our time voting? I am not an activist nor do I have time for that crap. I have a life to live and a family to take care of. Tell me how the Rule of Law will be restored. That has to happen first. Then you can have my vote.
Carla, you I respect, Maggie I respect, and Steve I respect. And Raheem! What a precious photo. We all should have a similar one to remind us of our innocence.Maggie is on the ball. Bannon is out to lunch. Raheem is good reporter but not right to setting direction.
Maggie should be setting the direction of tis program now. Steve, it's your show, you need to take a seat on the bench and get into the field because you are not in touch,

Easy now that you have acquiesced and surrendered your seats representing you and me and respectable working Americans (I’m stretching my respectability, not yours). They don’t like respectable, because respectable means accountable. Truthful. Hard working. Sounds like Texans, rural Oregonians, Allegheny county, even Scranton. Salt of the earth.
If the salt of the earth doesn’t vote, who will?
They want you to surrender your will to live, to believe, to do anything for yourself. Remember 1984 and don’t let it happen. VOTE like your life depends on it... because when AOC suggests brainwashing the list of trump supporters and voters, and Bernie acknowledges prison camps and Gulag might be useful against Tump supporters and voters, then your life and mine do absolutely depend on voting those people out, and law-and-order populists in.
Pepole in Georgia, on Jan 5, who didn’t vote because the election hadn’t been secured, had GIVEN UP the election and their chance at being represented. They acquiesced and lost their representation.

Of the hard working pioneers here in Oregon that I’ve talked to since Nov 3, I am the only living soul I know of which did NOT vote for Biden. But that is because i am on the very outskirts of Portland, not in the rural Bible Belt surrounding it. And people around here know not to say they didn’t vote for Biden.
Just like Steve says, Oregon is a sea of red, with a couple blue dots. Has been for decades.
I feel like I’m manning the fort single-handedy when it comes to dissenting against Network News, NPR and the SHEEPLE who still agree with this putrid and treasonous course of action lead by
Biden and HarrisPelosi, Schumer, McConnell, Newsom, Cuomo. And he resigned? And he’s resigned? And he resigned? Treason much?
But on Nov. 4, on Dec 16, on Jan 7, Bannon stood steadfast, when all of us were lost overboard. I was like Maggie, I think, seeing America slip away. My 1A means Everything to me. Freedom of speech felt like it ended on Nov 4, Dec 16, Jan 7, AND Jan 20.
The answer to “who steers the ship” of the Steve Bannon Show is very clear. He swung around and picked us up, those who tuned in and were brave enough to stare defeat in the face. Don‘t knock yourself or anyone for doubting. Do knock others for not standing up for what they believe!
But be prepared to be heard, acknowledged and attended to by fellow deplorables who believe in what you believe in. America! Steve is a good guy and a populist. He wants to know what you, and Maggie, and fellow deplorables think. I’m amazed that people are judging him before the conversation is over, but what should we expect in this political climate.
You might be pleasantly surprised. For a naval officer to change his heading based on anyone‘s opinion is a laugh. Persuasion, the art of representing yourself, and winning people over with facts and a common goal is how it’s done. Slander and accusation is not. Hey, you bring the heat, I get to talk more than usual!
Steve isn’t out to lunch, he’s HOLDING THE LINE
*steps out to lunch*
Fog City Midge! I am here now because of what she said. She is correct about the attitudes of many would-be Trump supporters. Even though I am a country away it still matters. I threatened the relationship I had with family and friends in support of Trump and all things anti socialism, anti MSM, yada yada yada. But holy cow, what a drift to the pills to see the lack of follow-through by Trump and whomever in party would rally behind him to do the right thing. He got played, we got left out in the cold and now somehow at CPAC we are supposed to feel inspired by Trump??? the most accomplished manager that speaks in nauseating Trump speak. I don't know anymore. I dunno I dunno I dunno. But the one thing for sure is FCM is all signal and in this instance Bannon is noise.
I am sure all the why didn't he...in your beautiful summation will be exposed..PDJT issued the order to strip security clearances and they just didnt do it. And Oh BTW we needed to take action in showing the Rs our support much quicker...and fought back from 1st day..we will all find out soon the extent of the continuous coup...and your words illustrate just how fantastic a leader PDJT is...any other R would be sitting behind bars.Maggie, you are spot on with a lot of your arguments. There are a lot of people who question some of the stuff that actually went down over the past 4 years, and most importantly November 3, 2020.
On Day 1 of Trump's presidency, I was horrified that he did not purge every single one of Obama's appointees and every single one of the Bush holdouts as his first order of business. Now obviously he was struggling with the Swamp, but what did he expect when he got the job by threatening to drain it? Why didn't he ignore court orders reguarding immigration or other instances that were blatant interference of one branch over the other with regard to existing law? We have 3 independent branches of government. The GOP controlled 100% of the Legislative Branch in the first two years. The Judicial Branch is there to interpret law, not create it. They have NO authority over an independent Executive Branch executing laws - it does not matter what they think of the President.
Why did he surround himself with such miserable Swamp Creatures? Why didn't he just fire Jeff the moment that guy proved himself worthless? Trump wasted 2 years by not cleaning house of the RINOs first?
Why didn't Trump withdraw the security clearances of every single Swamp Rat running around Washington DC? The courts have no say in that! There is zero "need to know" for ex-politicians and ex-government officials. Frankly, it would have plugged most of those leaks. Why didn't he go after the DOJ for not bringing charges against Comey for leaking information and breaking laws?
Why didn't he close down the Media Circus at the White House? He could have just shut the West Wing down and kicked all those disrespectful jokers out. He could have offered a tent to them in the Rose Garden or the lobby at the hotel across the street. Why didn't he ignore the court order demanding he return Acosta to the circus - what jurisdiction does the Judicial Branch have over the independent operation of the Executive Branch?
When it comes to November 3rd, we all saw that train wreck coming in April. There are already enough laws on the books to stop the garbage that took place. Why didn't Trump force a constitutional crisis over the garbage the DNC was pulling? The moment we saw footage of boarded windows and poll watchers being thrown out or prevented from doing their jobs, he should have mobilized. He should have had a plan in place before the election. When there were so many irregularities, when there were so many indications of fraud, and so many administrative actions against the legislative will of the States, why didn't he declare an emergency, deploy the military, secure the evidence, set up an independent commission to forensically evaluate the results? The courts are not setup to do anything after the fact. We have 3 independent branches of government and the Executive Branch is there to execute the laws. This power is granted directly to the President and not to the different departments. There is NO independent DOJ or FBI or CIA or DHS- it belongs to the Executive Branch and Trump was in charge of it. He could have brought the full weight and power of the Executive Branch into play, but he made this about himself instead of the rule of law.
Why hasn't there been any corrupt leftover Clinton/Bush/Obama creatures thrown in jail?
Why didn't Trump go after Pence's Chief of Staff? He could have made life miserable for Pence if he didn't get a different CoS. At the very least, he could have excluded them from ALL meetings and placed Pence in charge of ANWAR in Alaska.
Yes, Trump got a lot of stuff done despite all the blow-back. But, frankly, there was a lot of losing going on in many strategic areas.
Great leaders are judged by the teams they surround themselves with and frankly Trump surrounded himself with a lot of disloyal Swam Rats. So I am with Maggie. If Trump is to lead, he better get some great people around him and address ALL the corruption at the ballot box to the full satisfaction of 75-80 million voters.
I hate the term "stolen election" and I wish people would stop using it. It sounds childish and diminishes what happened. The election was fraudulent at the local, state and national level. The Courts were derelict. The DOJ was derelict. The DHS was derelict. People like me want all the machines and votes forensically examined in WI, MI, PA, AZ and GA by truly neutral experts. We want all the affidavits taken seriously. We want all the video footage taken seriously. We want the statistical data taken seriously. We want the internet data taken seriously. We want to know why DNC and fomer DNC had access to rooms with ballots. We want to know how laws can be magically changed by administrators and not the legislative branch. We want to know why courts will rubber stamp such changes when they have zero power, standing or jurisdiction over the Legistlative Branch (they cannot even hear cases asking for such changes to legislation!). And, until that happens, we will not change our minds that this country is no longer a Republic. We will not believe that this country is ruled by the law of the Constitution. If we cannot enforce existing law to its fullest extent, what good is another commission or report or law? It is all political BS so that the country can be run by puppet-masters - neo-nazis and neo-brown-shirts: socialist-corporatists and blm/antifa.
So tell me Steve Bannon - if we do not have Rule of Law over our own Ballot Box, why should we waste our time voting? I am not an activist nor do I have time for that crap. I have a life to live and a family to take care of. Tell me how the Rule of Law will be restored. That has to happen first. Then you can have my vote.
I call B/S. The "will to vote" is superseded by how many more times they run the counterfeit votes through the counting machine. We voted. It didn't matter. The lawyers took it to court, it didn't matter, many times over.Pepole in Georgia, on Jan 5, who didn’t vote because the election hadn’t been secured, had GIVEN UP the election and their chance at being represented. They acquiesced and lost their representation.
We have to unrig the ballot boxes. We might not be able to do it."“In this country we have one great privilege which they don’t have in other countries. When a thing gets to be absolutely unbearable the people can rise up and throw it off. That’s the finest asset we’ve got — the ballot box.” - Mark Twain 1905.
I agreed with him until November 03, 2020 - January 06, 2021.
Unfortunately, Mark Twain never envisioned an enslaved America where the State simply throws votes they disagree with in the garbage and then replaces them with the votes the State wants. A State where the Courts simply ignore the crime. We have become "the other countries" Mark Twain was talking about. If the ballot box is rigged, tell me how elections will change anything?
yes!Total "DEVASTATION"! That is the ONLY way I can describe how I've felt regarding everything that took place regarding the 2020 Election, the lead up to it, and the aftermath thereof!
I agree, President Trump, had TOTAL POWER as Commander In Chief to ACT on many fronts, for whatever reason(s), HE DID NOT! I have so many questions! Because I DO NOT HAVE THE ANSWERS TO THOSE QUESTIONS, I CANNOT GIVE AN HONEST AND COMPLETE VIEWPOINT and therefore I'm left feeling empty, totally crushed, letdown, confused and angry to say the least! My LORD sustains me!
PS Steve, you need to address the concerns of your followers
