Larry Kudlow: Bannon Goes Belly-Up and the Stock Market Soars

Larry Kudlow has a new article boasting about the downfall of Steve Bannon:

“There were two big money-and-politics stories in the first week of the new year: The Dow Jones soared 577 points and Steve Bannon ended his political career.

Are these two events related? Perhaps more than you might think.

Bannon’s peculiar notions of populism were essentially anti-growth. He believed higher taxes, ultra-protectionism, and a cheap dollar would help the middle class. Supply-siders like me know these policies only damage the economy, with the middle and lower classes suffering the most. …”

It is the usual recitation of the Reaganite Creed.

Among the assertions: the stock market is the American economy, Wall Street knows what is best for the working class, deregulation and economic growth is the elixir that cures all ills, everyone benefits from huge corporate tax breaks. I’m sure this is self evident to rich people and conservatives who romanticize the 1980s. It isn’t a view shared by the overwhelming majority of Americans.

It was the populist-nationalist Trump with the MAGA agenda that won the White House. The Larry Kudlow Reaganite agenda hitched a ride on that wave. Now, Sloppy Steve is gone and the MAGA agenda is dead. Neo-Reaganism is triumphant in the Republican Party. We’re going to see how a White working class party responds to the conservative agenda it rejected in the primaries.

Speaking for myself, I can’t run away faster from the Republican Party. This isn’t what I voted for in the 2016 presidential election. In fact, I supported Trump’s campaign because he seemed to break with the Jeb Bush-Marco Rubio-Ted Cruz True Cons economic agenda. We’re now getting the worst of both worlds which is Trump’s massive character flaws combined with the Mitt Romney policies.

Remember the Bane speech? We now have someone ran as Huey Long, but governs more like Herbert Hoover.

  1. Bannon will attack the altright and support a weak easy to beat candidate, most likely a Christian against Trump come 2020. Trump knows of his betrayals and is seeking to disempower weaken, and confuse his supporters, by trying to split the altright and Christians.

  2. Forget politics. America is dying and everyone knows it. The questions are: Do you have a plan to protect your own when the EBT cards run out, and will the white working class go off to fight and die for a (((government))) that hates them.

    If enough white men refuse to be “patriots” stupid enough to believe the (((deep state)))’s propaganda, the jews will have to fight their wars with dindus and bugmen…. I will laugh as (((the media))) tries to spin that as “the world’s greatest military”.

  3. Yeah, keep the boobies focused on the economy, tax reform, flag waving,foreign wars for freedom and democracy and let everything else go to hell, Trumptards love that stuff.

  4. Bannon, who was carrying the ball fumbled away by the Alt Right, has now fumbled it in turn.

    Our movement needs to pick it up, and march down the field; forcing people to stare directly at our “brown future” in 2018, while preparing our people to accept an alternative, namely White Nationalism in the years to come.

    What is the key to victory? Trust! No one is going to leap into the unknown after people they cannot trust. Building trust is what you do day in and day out, and can be ruined in an instant.

    The movement has had 5 going on 6 solid days in 2018, we just need to keep marching the ball down the field by running it straight up the middle and not fumbling the ball.

  5. Lincoln, Trump’s idol, was becoming very unpopular in the first two years of his War Against Southern Independence so he decided to free the slaves (just in the states that had seceded) … appears Trump is moving toward what the world views as higher moral ground … maybe Trump’s presidency will follow Lincoln’s to its bitter conclusion … death to all traitors …

  6. Fantastic development. Soon Bannon will be fired by the Breitbart jews. I pray for Bannon. He can help develop popular funding. We need 3 million whites giving 20 dollars a week, not Jewish billionaires. This split with the traitor Bibi Trump is highly encouraging.
