The tentacles of Steve Bannon are seemingly infinite as the media mogul extended his reach to our friends across the pond for a strategy session on political movements that would benefit both the United Kingdom and the United States.
Last week, Bannon met with British Parliament’s Jacob Rees-Mogg, the man who appears as the favorite to lead the Conservative Party, and Nigel Farage the mastermind behind the successful Brexit movement.
The meetings were arranged by Raheem Kassam, Editor of Breitbart London, and former chief of staff for Farage, and held at a swanky hotel in London. The insiders-backroom king-makers club is apparently trending internationally:
“Asked about the meetings, Kassam said: “Brexit and the election of President Trump were inextricably linked, so the discussions focused on how we move forward with winning for the conservative movements on both sides of the pond, how you build movements, on the ground and digitally, and what Steve’s brand of economic nationalism – which puts the interests of ordinary people first – can do in the US and the United Kingdom.”
And what did Rees-Mogg say about Bannon? “An interesting man to have met.” Ah, yes, the stiff upper lip. Some Brits are not all that chatty.
Bannon, without a shred of doubt, was the conductor of the Trump Train, which barreled down the rails, plowing over the stalled Clinton Cartel, and bringing America first back into popular thoughts and actions.
Rees-Mogg, the often-touted rebellious Member of Parliament (MP) is demonstrating Trump-esque grassroots domination in Great Britain. It’s not a big leap that the two would meet to discuss world domination tactics. Add in Farage, and well, it might be game over for any other contenders who dare step in front of a Bannon candidate or conservative policy.
Rees-Mogg is the populist darling in today’s British Empire, and like Trump, he courted the average citizen and had an almost rock star following with Conservatives. He also slyly dodges the question of whether or not he would seek the Tory Party nomination to challenge the Labour Party’s (opposition government) wildly popular Jeremy Corbyn.
I know, they aren’t American household names, but if you follow political trends, they may be soon enough. And it would a battle of epic proportions between two decidedly polar-opposites in the governing and protection of the UK; America 2016, British version 2.0, if you will.
A Breaking Point
So, what on earth could the self-described economic nationalist and populist Steve Bannon bring to the UK and the Conservative party? A YUGE win. A turning of the tides that had the U.S. and Britain once sailing toward a global economy, and loss of control of an independent government upon which both nations are proud to protect. Bannon is not attempting to win one national election. Instead, he is in a battle to save future generations from succumbing to global socialism, dependency on foreign economies, and protecting the freedoms both countries have often taken for granted.
If the triad of Bannon, Farage, and Rees-Mogg can set the ship to sail on those seas, then they have my unwavering support. And hopefully yours as well.
