Trump’s Top Three
The MSM is screaming Trump campaign shakeup, and yammering night and day about trouble within the campaign. What a load of horse hockey!
Manafort is still leading the pack, he has not been demoted. There are only so many titles to go around, and now Trump has three brilliant people to help him win this campaign.
It is common in the home stretch of a campaign to beef up the pack for the win.
“It is imperative we continue to expand our team with top-tier talent,” Manafort said in the campaign statement. “Steve and Kellyanne are respected professionals who believe in Mr. Trump and his message and will undoubtedly help take the campaign to new levels of success.”
Saving our Country
Our very country is at stake in the 2016 election. We are at the tipping point, and only Donald J. Trump can level our nation again. Many grassroots Americans are working overtime to help Mr. Trump become our 45th President of the United States. And now, at the bottom of the 9th, he’s added two of my most favorite people to his campaign, so the bases are loaded, and here comes the grand slam!
Manafort, Bannon, and Conway head up the Trump campaign, along with a lot of other brilliant people and great advisors, including my favorite intel officer, LTG Michael Flynn. One must remember the fabulous RNC convention we tuned into for four nights. It was Manafort who gave us the finest convention we’ve seen in over 50 years! He promised an exciting GOP gathering in Cleveland, and that’s exactly what we got, truly the ultimate reality show. Not only was the entire program informative, but it was totally entertaining.
The latest addition of Kellyanne Conway and Stephen Bannon is a bold and productive move on the part of Donald Trump. Both these people are top tier skilled politicos.
Kellyanne Conway is a veteran pollster. Her husband, George, is a New York lawyer who was part of secret efforts to boost the lawsuit of Clinton accuser Paula Jones. He is a litigation partner at the law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen and Katz.
Her company biography calls her a “fully-recovered” attorney, and says she is admitted to practice law in four jurisdictions (Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia). She has practiced law, clerked for a judge in Washington, DC and for four years, was an adjunct professor at George Washington University Law Center.
In 1995, Kellyanne founded The Polling Company, Inc., which is “a nationally-regarded primary research and consulting firm based in Washington, DC, with offices in New York City.”
Bloomberg calls Conway “a 49-year-old movement conservative from New York” and says she is the “first woman to manage a Republican presidential campaign.”
Conway was also employed by the Cruz campaign as a strategist for Keep the Promise I, a pro-Cruz super-PAC, bankrolled by hedge fund billionaire Robert Mercer, that ran attack ads against Trump during the primary campaign, including one blasting the real estate mogul for supposedly supporting government-run healthcare, which of course wasn’t true. Robert Mercer now has a Super Pac which is running attack ads against Hillary Clinton.
Remember, for Kellyanne, it was a job. She supports Donald Trump for president, and she’s dynamite at what she does.
By the way, Carl Icahn called into CNN today to announce that he is backing Mr. Trump. Icahn is worth $17 billion. He believes the American blue collar and middle class workers will all support Mr. Trump. Why? Because Trump will bring back American jobs, and because Trump is the “blue-collar billionaire.”
Stephen Bannon is called a firebrand, but he’s a big time truth teller, and a devout conservative. He is a businessman, media executive, conservative filmmaker, and former naval officer, and as of now, the “Chief Executive” of the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald Trump. Stephen is the co-founder and executive chairman of the Government Accountability Institute, where he helped orchestrate the filming of Clinton Cash. He is also the former executive chairman of Breitbart News LLC, the parent company of the Breitbart News Network. He resigned in order to work for Mr. Trump.
He holds a master’s degree in National Security Studies from Georgetown University. He also has an MBA from Harvard Business School. And yes, he worked at Goldman Sachs as an investment banker in the Mergers & Acquisitions Department. He and several colleagues at Sachs left and started Bannon and Company, a “boutique investment bank” specializing in media.
Through his company, he negotiated the sale of Castle Rock Entertainment to Ted Turner. As payment, Bannon & Co. accepted a stake in five television shows, including Seinfeld. He sold the company in 1998.
Bannon then became an executive producer in Hollywood. He produced Anthony Hopkins’s 1999 film, Titus. He also became a partner with entertainment industry executive Jeff Kwatinetz at The Firm, Inc., a film and television management company.
Bloomberg thinks Bannon is the most dangerous political operative in America, because he wants to take down Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush, and he’s doing a very good job of it.
According to the Bloomberg article,
Bannon sits at the nexus of what Hillary Clinton once dubbed “the vast right-wing conspiracy,” where he and his network have done more than anyone else to complicate her presidential ambitions—and they plan to do more. But this “conspiracy,” at least under Bannon, has mutated into something different from what Clinton described: It’s as eager to go after establishment Republicans such as Boehner or Jeb Bush as Democrats like Clinton.
In 2004, Bannon made a documentary about Ronald Reagan titled In the Face of Evil. During the making and screening of this film, Bannon was introduced to Peter Schweizer, who wrote Clinton Cash, and publisher Andrew Breitbart.
Breitbart actually apprenticed under Matt Drudge, and later Drudge introduced him to Arianna Huffington, who was then still a Republican, and Breitbart actually helped her start Huffington Post. We lost a great one with Andrew Breitbart.
Democrats believe that Bannon and his ilk have been more effective than conservatives who targeted Bill Clinton 25 years ago. In fact, Bannon has come out with so much on the Clintons, including a focus on how the donors in Clinton Cash violated many of the principles liberals hold dear. The Clintons have basically played a lot of people for fools, and they’ve enriched themselves beyond belief while doing it.
That’s not all, Peter Schweizer’s e-book, Bush Bucks: How Public Service and Corporations Helped Make Jeb Rich, examines how Bush enriched himself after leaving the Florida governor’s mansion in 2007. The rot is in both the right and the left.
One must always remember that Donald J. Trump is a businessman and not a politician. He has had to learn as he’s traveled through this snake pit of MSM, GOP, and Democrat attacks. He fills stadiums to capacity while Hillary Clinton struggles to fill a high school auditorium. His campaign has been ramped up to where it is now on steroids. It is up to us to help him fulfill his promises for Making America Great Again. Get everyone to the polls on November 8th, and vote Trump!
