Storyline

When Steve Bannon left his position as White House chief strategist less than a week after the Charlottesville "Unite the Right" rally in August 2017, he was already a notorious figure in Trump's inner circle, and for bringing a far-right ideology into the highest echelons of American politics. Unconstrained by an official post - though some say he still has a direct line to the White House - he became free to peddle influence as a perceived kingmaker, turning his controversial brand of nationalism into a global movement. THE BRINK follows Bannon through the 2018 mid-term elections in the United States, shedding light on his efforts to mobilize and unify far-right parties in order to win seats in the May 2019 European Parliamentary elections. To maintain his power and influence, the former Goldman Sachs banker and media investor reinvents himself - as he has many times before - this time as the self-appointed leader of a global populist movement. Keen manipulator of the press and ...

More of the same
12 July 2019 | by pailoongSee all my reviews

Leave it to a real-estate baron to live rent-free in people's minds. This is, as the title suggests, more of the same "never-Trump", blatant, nonsensical propaganda that's been pumped out nonstop for the past 3 years. This time it seeks to demonize someone Riefenst- I'm sorry, Klayman (it's hard to tell these propagandists apart these days) - has clearly done no research on and tries to connect their personal feelings about Bannon to President Trump in a pathetic attempt to apply "guilt by association". I guess since the Mueller report blew up in their faces, the TDS sufferers are grasping at straws.

If you've seen one of these, you've seen them all.
