Update: Apparently some of the talk about Bannon being totally removed from the NSC was Fake News (he was only removed from the Cabinet-level principles committee), and he will still be able to attend meetings.
That being said, we need to remain vigilant when it comes to what is happening behind closed doors at the White House. We can’t lose a man like Bannon – it would be a nightmare catastrophe.
Bannon will continue to attend National Security Council meetings–including the one this afternoon, top official told me. https://t.co/q2YTa613DY

Clarification for my colleagues: Bannon wasn't removed from the NSC, only from the NSC principals committee. He still attends NSC meetings.

Original article follows below:
Today in Alabama featured some nasty hot and humid weather that seems to have been a preview of the summer ahead, and like the temperature, my blood has been boiling over the news hitting the wires over the last twenty-four hours.
Gentlemen, we seem to have a rodent problem in the White House, and I shouldn’t even need to tell you who I’m talking about at this point – use some brainpower and think for a moment.
It’s getting ugly over at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Brothers and Sisters, and I don’t like hearing about Steve Bannon losing even 0.0000033 percent of his authority and influence over the President in favor of Jared Kushner and whichever cuckold he finds most appropriate.
Bannon is OUR GUY, and Trump only won this election thanks to Bannon’s scorched-earth tactics and savvy in dealing with Washington establishment filth, and not Kushner’s weird Jewish subterfuge.
White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has been removed from an important seat on the National Security Council — a posting that had stirred controversy for placing one of President Donald Trump’s top political hands in a key national security position.
The change represents the first real diminution of authority for Bannon, who has been cast as an all-powerful whisperer to Trump in the administration’s first 75 days, mocked by his critics as “President Bannon.”
In recent weeks, Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, has asked searching questions — sometimes for hours — of inside and outside advisers about the White House’s performance and complained about Bannon in particular, according to people who have spoken with Kushner. Kushner, a onetime New York Democrat, and Bannon, a hard-right nationalist, have clashed as Kushner has told people that Bannon’s desire to deconstruct the government is hurting the president.
One person familiar with Kushner’s thinking says Kushner believes Bannon is more of a problem than Reince Priebus, the chief of staff.
“Big fight is between nationalists and the ‘West Wing Democrats,’” one senior administration official said.
Translated into common speech, we’re seeing a fight between Nationalists and a Jew/Cuck alliance that is seeking to neuter the Trump Presidency into something that Jeb! or Little Marco – or Aggro Granny – would have felt comfortable with.
The White House tried to downplay the significance of Bannon’s removal from the NSC — it went unannounced by the press office — depicting him as simply moving on after successfully completing limited tasks.
“It’s not like this is a major shake-up,” said another administration official.
But Bannon’s exit, revealed in a federal register filing and confirmed by multiple White House officials, is perceived to represent a significant long-term increase in authority for H.R. McMaster, Trump’s new national security adviser, who now has greater authority over the council’s agenda without one of Trump’s closest aides watching closely over him.
“McMaster won,” one NSC official said.
Great, so now we have some Neo-Con maniac general taking charge of things that directly involve NATIONAL SECURITY – read “invade Syria and Iran because muh missiles, muh gassed Kebab Peasants, and muh Holy Land.”
And if this wasn’t some big deal, why even mention anything at all about it?
Better yet, why change the dynamics of the NSC at all?
Lawmakers of both parties welcomed the return to a more traditional NSC structure.
“I’d be very pleased that he would not be on the National Security Council,” Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said on Capitol Hill. “My hope is that he would have no role in government at all and would be completely out.”
Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) said downgrading Bannon was a “good move” — and he praised the reinstatement of the Joint Chiefs chairman as a permanent member of the security council.
“The chairman of the Joint Chiefs should be in a permanent position, so I think it’s the right thing to do, but it’s a decision of the president’s,” McCain said. “I said at the time that I didn’t think a political adviser should be a member of that body because it’s never been, so I think it’s the right thing to do.”
And Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), former chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, tweeted, “Steve Bannon’s removal from National Security Council is welcome news.”
This is not a good day for us, especially with the scum crawling out of their caves to praise this most foolish of decisions as some sort of epiphany on the part of Trump.
My guess on the next steps?
I’m going to wager that they’ll go after Bannon directly after this, and will seek to remove him as one of Trump’s key advisers – complete with a revocation of his security clearance.
That would mean three people would then have the ear of the President in almost all matters foreign and domestic:
A blood Jew, a Jewish convert who has been a Leftist for most of her adult life, and a bloodthirsty general who doesn’t even have the balls to say “radical Islam” when discussing his plans for slaughtering White military men.
Great time, Goys.
Great times indeed.
