"... folks that are bitter the election's over ..."

House Democrats are demanding that the winner of Tuesday’s presidential election should listen to the losing party in shaping the next administration.

A group of 169 House Democrats are insisting President-elect Donald Trump rescind the appointment of Breitbart News Executive Steve Bannon as Trump’s chief strategist and senior counselor. Bannon served as Trump’s campaign CEO for the final months of the general election campaign.

“Bigotry, anti-Semitism and xenophobia should have no place in our society, and they certainly have no place in the White House,” Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., said Wednesday in a statement.

“Whether intentional or not, the appointment of Mr. Bannon sends a disturbing message about what kind of president Donald Trump wants to be,” he added.

No Republicans signed the letter to Trump. Last week, Republicans gained control of the White House while maintaining control of both houses of Congress.

The letter to Trump said unity is impossible while Trump has an adviser like Bannon.

“Unfortunately, your appointment of Stephen Bannon, whose ties to the white nationalist movement have been well-documented, directly undermines your ability to unite the country,” the letter said.

“Millions of Americans have expressed fear and concern about how they will be treated by the Trump administration and your appointment of Mr. Bannon only exacerbates and validates their concerns. We strongly believe that Mr. Bannon’s appointment will not allow the country to heal and come together as one,” the letter added.

As Democrats hammered Bannon, others defended him.

Bannon’s critics are “folks that are bitter the election’s over,” Trump spokesman Jason Miller said. “They didn’t get the result that they wanted.”

“Steve Bannon is someone who’s done a fantastic job implementing the president-elect’s vision on the campaign trail,” Miller said. “He’s someone I’ve had the opportunity to work with over the past three or four months, someone I’ve seen very high character from.”

Breitbart Senior Editor-at-large Joel Pollak told NPR that Bannon “has no prejudices, he treats people equally, and, in fact, during my time working closely with him at Breitbart for five years, he sought out people from diverse backgrounds and gave them a voice at Breitbart.”

Pollak said Bannon is “from a conservative perspective at least, a national hero, because in helping Donald Trump win, he’s helped defend the Supreme Court and the Constitution.”

MeMike... you get a thumbs up for that one.

Now the Communist bastards want to work together, Hell no, don't give an inch, kick them while their down and don't let them up. Absolute insanity to deal with them. Time to begin the process of educating this country, get back to basics and build more private schools. This election proves America is beginning to wake up, let's take it the rest of the way.

God Bless America and the State of Israel

Live Free or Die

Republicans in the house/senate need to listen to their spiel and then vote like they were not even there.

They have no say so about Steve Bannon. Trump can hand out case's of Kleenex to them and charge the DNC for them.

;' / ..and he should

As posted, in response to an earlier post... the GOP had better consider the Dem's as obstructionist from the get go... AND repeal the Filibuster Rule as the first order of business in both Houses. Otherwise, the Dem's will obstruct and obfuscate at every opportunity... driving a wedge between the Congress and Pres. Trump's recovery strategy. 

The Dem's are the minority and they need to be told so in no uncertain terms... Remove the power of the minority to obstruct Congress, eliminate the Filibuster Rule, or don't expect to get a single bill passed or appointment made, without serious compromise... Compromise that destroys the essence of Trumps pledge to clean out the swamp in DC and to restore America's Greatness. 

Attempts to control the appointments made by Trump should be put down immediately.  Obama's Czar's were never consented to by Congress.  Sen. McConnell should appear before the Nation to announce that the US Senate will approve all of Pres. Trumps appointments... that the President should be allowed to appoint his Cabinet without interference from a soundly defeated minority.

Does anyone care?  You'd think they would realize they are not in a position to "Demand" anything!

Jo...

The Dem's will continue to act as if they have all the power... until the GOP leadership sits them down FIRMLY and permanently defangs them. 

Remove the Filibuster Rule as the first order of Business... Lock the Dem's out of the Congress's leadership meetings, kill every attempt they make to control Congress's agenda.  Strip them of any real power in committees and be prepared to seriously censure them if they obstruct or act to disrupt Congress... as they are likely to do so.

Forget Unity... there can be no unity between light and darkness... between Marxist and Capitalist they are diametrically opposed ideologies.

Ronald,

GOP, most of then sold out to CFR Of London England, they need to be removed from office. The battle is now just started.

We should be trampling Democrats into silence and calling it unity. They don't realize that worldwide sentiment has turned away from the idea "government is the answer" and won't change for decades. Until they make fiscal and socioeconomic sense I say just trample them and throw a victory party every Friday 

I would tell them just like ohomo did they can come along for the ride but they're going to have to sit in the back of the bus

Of course the liberals want to dump Mr. Bannon.  Because he has a brain, a high IQ.  And that is something totally foreign to any breathing liberal.  Carry on Mr. Bannon and make America proud.

ALERT ALERT

1 Billion Dollar Net Worth!!! Oberlin College Claims Poverty To Avoid Paying Punitive Damages To Gibson’s Bakery

Although IRS reports show the university is worth around $1 billion, Oberlin College still claimed poverty to avoid paying punitive damages to Gibson’s Bakery.

As Breitbart News reported this week, the far-left Oberlin College lost a defamation case filed by Gibson’s Bakery after a local jury found the university liable for falsely accusing the family bakery of racism.

The jury ordered Oberlin on Friday to pay Gibson’s $11.2 million in compensatory damages for defamation and intentional interference with a business.

Legal Insurrection reported on Thursday that “the jury awarded a total of $33 million in punitive damages, which will probably be reduced by the court to $22 million because of the state law cap at twice compensatory.”

Legal Insurrection has been following the case for two years — since the beginning — and reports that the school’s only defense against a sizable punitive award is to pretend it is poor, despite holding assets that amount to a billion — with a “b” — dollars and despite paying some of its staffers more than a half-million dollars a year:

Oberlin College was so hellbent on getting the message out that their cash liquidity was in such dire straits — as the eight-person jury was figuring out if they wish to add $22.4 million to the school’s legal verdict bill — that they brought out the school’s president, Carmen Twillie Ambar to the stand to tell that part the story.

“We’ve created deficits … and over the next ten years, if this continues, that is unsustainable and we will not exist,” Ambar told the jury. She even indicated the school’s grants — about $60 million a year from the school, and lots of students get those scholarships as only 10% of them pay the full $70,000 a year — were important to preserve as “the accessibility of education” was a key component of the school’s purpose.

However…

The college has more than $1 billion in funds and net assets according to the latest IRS 990 form, an endowment fund that had grown from $440 million to $887 million in the last 20 years, and because of its non-profit status, pays no taxes on any property it owns.

It also had 18 members of their administration making more than $100,00 a year. The president and chief financial officer of the school were both making more than $500,000 a year.

Grifters gonna grift…

The day after Donald Trump won the presidency, this nutball school apparently decided to take out its impotent woke-rage on this poor bakery, which has been part of the Oberlin community for more than a century.

It all started when three Oberlin students (who would later plead guilty in a plea deal) attempted to steal bottles of wine.

The proprietors caught the students and, while attempting to hold them until police arrived, were allegedly roughed up by the shoplifters. But because the students are black and the proprietors white — and with no respect for due process or facts — Oberlin staffers and students decided some vigilantism was in order and did everything in their considerable power to destroy this local bakery forever, to smite it off the map.

Classes were canceled so hundreds of students could protest in front of the small store while enjoying free food and drink, courtesy of the school. School staffers handed out fliers that basically described the family-owned bakery as the local branch of the KKK.

As a result, the bakery had to lay off almost all of its employees and barely avoided bankruptcy.

In the end, the three shoplifters said race had nothing to do with what happened.

For those of you interested in incurring $200,000 in debt before you even enter the workforce, it looks as though you can major in Mob Justice at Oberlin.
