Yes, It Really Is ‘President Bannon.’ article from The Daily Kos. –
“If there was any doubt that this country is now being effectively run by a white supremacist rather than the Reality TV con-man voted into office last November, a photograph taken yesterday inadvertently revealing White House Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor Stephen Bannon’s odious “blueprint” for the country should put that doubt to rest.
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, a rightwing orthodox Jew and hardline supporter of Israeli policies (who has become Trump’s primary go-to mouthpiece on all things Jewish) visited the White House yesterday for an “Israel Independence Day” celebration. The Twitter-friendly Boteach sought photographs of himself in tandem with every White House personage he could find, including, curiously, the anti-Semitic, white “nationalist” champion Bannon. While the pair made a curious combination for that reason alone, it was the scribbled-on whiteboard in the background of the photograph that was far more interesting:
As the Washington Post notes, this “whiteboard” lists Bannon’s personal policy goals, with an outsize focus on rabidly xenophobic, anti-immigrant policies. “Repeal and Replace Obamacare” is at the top left (another goal Bannon lists is lowering the corporate tax rate to a specific 15%, which Trump actually proposed just last week). The fact that Bannon has the Board so publicly displayed is also indicative of how proud he is to display his goals to the rest of us.
Behind Boteach and Bannon (and, in one photo, Boteach’s wife Debbie) is a handwritten whiteboard list that apparently shows the goals that Bannon is working toward at the White House. Broken out into categories, many are obscured by the people in the foreground. Some have check marks next to them, apparently meant to indicate completion. What’s more, it’s my understanding that this is a subset of the goals publicly presented in Bannon’s office, so we’re looking only at a subset of what Bannon hopes to achieve…”
