    Bannon in trouble?

    This is from Axios. It is a relatively new newsite but I like it and so far it has been pretty accurate. This story is mostly the famous unnamed sources but given their track record worth thinking about, IMO.

    Trump suspects Bannon of leaking, putting job in jeopardy


    President Trump has told close associates that he believes Steve Bannon is behind damaging leaks about White House colleagues, putting the chief strategist's job in fresh jeopardy, sources close to the president tell me.

    Trump has told associates he's fed up with what he sees as self-promotion by Bannon, who did not join the core team this week at the president's golf club in Bedminster, N.J.

    Bannon's time with Trump has diminished since the new chief of staff, retired Marine Gen. John Kelly, took over and imposed discipline on the circus around the Oval Office.

    Bannon declined to comment.

    Why it matters: POTUS has been frustrated with Bannon in the past, but he never had as easy a vehicle for getting rid of him. Kelly is expected to make West Wing changes, anyway. As one top aide said: "Kelly can do the dirty work."

    Now Bannon is a man on an island, with very few true allies in the building.

    Some caveats: Trump's anger with Bannon is nothing new, and Bannon survived Jared Kushner's attempt to get rid of him early in the administration. It's always perilous to say Trump is going to oust anybody.

    Isn't this, "convenient", typical boardroom bullshit; create a crisis and then solve it.

    If Bannon wasn't there in the first place, trump wouldn't have to fire him,

    BUT,,, four of his minions have already been fired from the NSC; did Bannon leak? I thought it was Priebus who leaked, Oh, maybe it was Kushner who leaked?

    Or Ivanka? maybe trump leaked himself?

    That "depends"

    IF Trump ousts Bannon it will cut off his access to the white nationalist community AND his ability to rally all those whites to his cause.

    Trump has many former Goldman Sachs types and Council on Foreign Relations types in his administration. When they and the Jews surrounding Trump are the most visible members of his team, the whites will begin to understand they have been played.

    I haven't been keeping up with the numbers, but if Trump now goes Establishment Republican, it might give you an indication of the real strength of all white groups. Of course, as long as Trump will chant the mantra and pretend to be fighting Congress, the whites may go along - even knowing that they are being led by the Council on Foreign Relations and those espousing a NEW WORLD ORDER.

    I wish it were possible to hit a reset button on our government and the media alike. Our country has a collective mental illness.

    "Trump has told associates he's fed up with what he sees as self-promotion by Bannon."

    There you have it. Trump can't tolerate ANYONE attracting more notice than him.

    He'll have to go. Trump's ego won't have Bannon's ego besting him.

    That part is believable from what I've witnessed of Mr Trump so far.

    So much infighting and chaos in the Trump administration.
    Guess Trump isn't the leader you all thought he was, eh?

    Quite a contrast to No Drama Obama.

    Sacramucci was on ABC This Week. He hinted that Bannon was gone.

    Your alt-right has been calling for McMaster's firing. Lets see which crappy faction wins out.
