Steve Bannon’s appointment as CEO of President Trump’s campaign, then his chief strategist, and now having a seat on the National Security Council, has been celebrated on the Right. Bannon is interesting because he’s not the typical RINO, fake conservative. He certainly seems like the real deal based on his time as executive chair of Breitbart News, but also by the books that have influenced him. Here’s a selection of some of Bannon’s beloved titles, based on what I could piece together online.
My, how the tide can change. After eight years of promoting punishments for “hate speech” and claiming the First Amendment doesn’t apply to a long list of “thoughtcrimes,” the Left is finally claiming to care about free speech.
The 2016 U.S. presidential race was a wild ride and a throwback to misunderstood history. When Bernie Sanders was running in the DNC-rigged primary, the Right claimed his brand of Democratic Socialism wasn’t that different from the Socialism of the USSR, North Korea, China, Cuba, Venezuela, and Germany’ National Socialism.

President-elect Donald Trump has repeated that he’ll bring back coal jobs, in part by repealing Obama’s climate change regulations, and has called climate change a hoax.

Once upon a time, the Left cared about the environment and pushed policies that would actually help make America and the world cleaner and safer. Now they’ve sold out to global and corporate interests, and have abandoned any policies that would help the Mother Earth they claim to care so much about.
Guillaume Faye is one of the premiere thinkers in the Nouvelle Droite, but his work has been little known outside his native France. Since the publication of his books in English starting in 2010 he’s made his way into the discourse of the British and American New Right. His works on the Islamic colonization of Europe have been especially prescient.
Whether you’re on the radical Right or radical Left, the past two weeks have been a time to celebrate Hillary Clinton’s defeat. After only a few days of Donald Trump’s election, both Mexico and Canada said they were willing to renegotiate NAFTA. President Obama ditched his plans for TPP. Russian President Vladimir Putin and President-Elect Trump spoke by phone about bilateral cooperation in the war against radical Islamic terror and America is no longer in danger of World War III with Russia. Trump called out the lying and biased mainstream media that propped up Hillary Clinton throughout the campaign season.
The big news from a WikiLeaks release this week shows that John Podesta, chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, was invited to a Spirit Cooking dinner at the home of performance artist Marina Abramović. Internet rumors abounded about Satanism, most of them unfounded. But what is Abramović’s connection to the occult?
