Five-Head Speaks!

Reclusive crackpot billionaire and Martian sleeper cell, Rebekah Mercer --

-- yanked the one and only leash which actually makes a difference in the corporate media.  Which can actually rearrange the priorities and power structures inside virtually every corporate media enterprise in America from NPR to The Breitbart Collective,

She cut off Steve Bannon's allowance.  

Steve Bannon Just Lost Big Financial Backer Rebekah Mercer
Steve Bannon has lost the support of his most prominent backer, conservative billionaire Rebekah Mercer.

Mercer, who typically stays out of the public eye, told the Washington Post on Thursday that she has not spoken to Bannon in months and that she stands behind President Donald Trump as he feuds with his former adviser.

“I support President Trump and the platform upon which he was elected,” Mercer said in the rare statement. “My family and I have not communicated with Steve Bannon in many months and have provided no financial support to his political agenda, nor do we support his recent actions and statements.”
It's the money, kids.  It's nothing but the money.

With a billionaire stake-horsing him, Bannon became the senior advisor to the most powerful man on Earth, co-equal with the White House Chief of Staff.

Without a billionaire writing checks, Bannon is just another slovenly, bugfuck wingnut ruining another family Thanksgiving dinner.  

Behold, a Tip Jar!

Food for thought.

Also, beware of impeachment as magic bullet: Clinton's popularity went up after his.

I've said this before and I'll say it again. If I ever get diagnosed with am incurable, fatal disease I'm going after 1%er monsters like the Mercers.

It will be interesting to see how the MSM's Conservative Guru fawning over Bannon goes now that TV can probably refuse to book Bannon without getting a phone call and print journalist aren't getting ordered to get another "profile" into their publications.

Now if we can just get the rest of the Wingnut Welfare state dismantled and force these assholes into that "free market" their fascist sugar daddies paid them to go on and on about we'll see what the REAL demand for rightwing bullshit really is.

...or this is all just lies to head off the institutional de-investment campaigns that would ruin Robert's hedge fund.

The Mercers reportedly are withdrawing their $7M per year contribution to Breitbart. Bannon currently pays himself a yearly salary of $750K. Maybe he'll have to give himself a pay cut, or maybe he'll take it out of the other Breitbart staff. Either way, Sloppy Steve (new tRumph taunt) is said to be worth $20M, so he won't be missing any meals.

And as for the women? In addition to frightening Rebekah, throw in Ivanka ("baby girl" as tRump calls her - creepy), Hope "great piece of tail" Hicks, lizard alien Callista Gingrich. Yeah fine, they feel pressured to look young/good, via facelifts, boob jobs, etc. But Sweet Jesus in the Morning, more is not always better.

Wow. Unfortunate photograph. Nobody around to tell her that five inches of white space above the eyes isn't helping? Don't they have people? But then there's the Koch kid who has been on vacation his entire life and can't find the gym.

It's good to have an Arya Stark list.

Also, I've been researching umbrella pellet shooters in case of my own incurable, fatal disease. My list is long and I don't wanna get caught until I've finished it.....

Every bit of this looks like theater to me, National Enquirer "rivalries." I don't know precisely why these sociopaths trying to distract us -- the secretive Mercer's suddenly stepping out into the light?

. “My family and I have not communicated with Steve Bannon in many months..."

Read that as since the cocktail party in November.
None of these fucks has figured out that we know what they're doing.

It's been reported elsewhere, that the Mercer's cut their ties with Bannon, over his tax proposal, months ago.

What's with her head? Or forehead?? Egad. Maybe Mercer IS a Lizard person or something.

Recently watching the Danish TV series "The Bridge." Second Season (no big spoilers) has a creepy mastermind who hires doofus "radicals" to do various nefarious things in Malmo, Sweden, and Copenhagen. One of the "radicals" decides to get cute and blow up a big rig carrying a payload of petrol. Ka-boom! Doofus thinks this makes him look smrt to the shadowy Overlord who hired them (but they haven't met).

Overlord is decidedly not happy and engineers the painful demise of said doofuses.

This is how I see what happened between Bannon & his patron, the Baroness of the Lizard Kingdom. She said: you overstepped your usefulness to me. Be gone!

The Mercer's are gonna stand by Trump, as long as he's in the WH, where his chains can be yanked - and the payola proffered - to do the Mercer's bidding. Trump, as much of a doofus as he is, is way more useful to the Mercers bc of his "job." Once Trump is out of the WH (by whatever means), the Mercers will drop him like a hot potato.

Bannon? Who the Eff is that pisher?
