My answer to Who is acting as the President of the United States? Is it Steve Bannon, Jared Kushner or someone else…
Answer by Desmond Last:
It is not Democracy and not the People. Steve Bannon is in charge of the U.S. Bannon and a group of right-wing ideologues who believe the World belongs to them because they can buy it.
We the people no longer have access to change. We have been sidelined by World Nation Government. A Global Movement of Power Elite who have their way and only their way. President Trump has surrounded himself with a new Swamp and we are sinking fast. A man who promised change will not listen to change.
President Trump and Steve Bannon are now the Ivory Tower they so promised to bring down.
My point is how do we the People penetrate the 'Ivory Tower of the Establishment that Steve Bannon is and always has been part of?
Bannon who says he wants to tear down the Establishment would run a mile if it meant his five-star expense account and his 'wall' between him and the people were to be breached in anyway.
Reducing bureaucracy is good. I agree. I also believe that the era of centralized Government is past its use-by-date. But that does not mean it is replaced with an Emperor and his Rasputin.
What should concern us is that we cannot get heard. Sure President Trump heard the Rust Belt and he answered to its call. But now that he is President the only 'new thought' appears to come via Steve Bannon and the Right-Wing Money men and women.
That is OK as long as Bannon and his right-wing Conservative mates are able to advise in a way which does not take America and the World down Bannon's view of the World.
Some of what Bannon says I agree with. But he has no new solutions. No founding philosophy on which to forge new systems. His is an ideology based on division.
Steve Bannon is doing one of two things.
1. He is not telling President Trump what is really happening in the World.
2. He is telling President Trump what is really happening in the World and telling him to ignore it.
Or worse and scarier is that neither of them has a clue about what is going on in the World.
Either way President Trump needs new ideas and it appears as if Steve Bannon is going to make sure he does not get them unless he Steve Bannon agrees with them. That is not good for America and it is not good for the World.
I am still waiting for one new idea to come from President Trump and Steve Bannon. Steve Bannon it would appear is no different to the 'Establishment' he so wants to 'tear down'; all spin and even more ideology.
When will our Governments and Establishment understand that they alone are not in charge of our World – we too have a say.
We have just had Obama's 8 years of ignoring the voice of the People and in the U.K it is part of the landscape.
President Trump heard the Voice of America but now it appears as if it first has to be cleared by Steve Bannon.
