Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Podcast for October 11, 2017 it’s the Bannon’s War edition of the podcast with your hosts: Hartford CT talk show host Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist Mike Stopa. This week, we follow the erstwhile White House advisor and once and future Breitbart warrior in his quest to deconstruct the administrative state.

God. That phrase still makes my heart skip a beat.

Taking the fight to America, taking the fight to Hannity, where did the populist revolution begin? Was it all on account of Andrew Breitbart? Where did Stephen Miller get into the act? Will 35% of the Republican Party be calling the shots for all of America after 2018? We can only hope.

And then, Meghan McCain debuts on The View with unprepared left wing co-hosts. She seems not content to play the token conservative on the panel. She seems to want to jolt the whole show over to the righteous right. You go girl!!!

We will have, of course, our shower thoughts. We will have our hidden gem. This week it is Keith Jarrett’s encore from the K ö ln concert. Great piece!

    Well, for a smart, opinionated, irascible liberal guest with a Harvard pedigree and a Boston mailing address you can’t do much better than Barney Frank.

    Anyone who wants a great backgrounder on Steve Bannon’s role in creating the wave that Trump rode should read Devil’s Bargain.

    Joshua Green is remarkably fair and the book is well researched. The two dominant themes in the Trump campaign — immigration enforcement and Clinton corruption — were being created by Bannon while Trump was applying for H1Bs and H2Bs and donating money to Hill and Bill.

    Green would make a fine guest. Very entertaining with nuanced and balanced takes.

    Who provided the money to fund Peter Schweizer? Bannon.

    Who directed the Mercer’s money to resurrect the Breitbart site after a near death experience (and a tragic death) and then fund Trump’s targeted campaign? Bannon. (The Mercer storylines are a hoot.)

    Trump’s campaign received its first establishment shot in the arm when a certain senator from Alabama endorsed him before Super Tuesday. Who prevailed on Sessions to make the endorsement? Bannon.

    Who won the battle over the replacement for that same AL senator? Bannon.

    It is risible that Bannon receives such withering and condescending putdowns from the MSNBC/Commentary news service when he bootstrapped and directed the biggest upset in American political history. Guys who pretend to possess vast political nous but couldn’t elect a county coroner in northern Virginia.

    Come to think about it, forget the liberals. Invite the real opponent of the GOP on the show: Bannon.

    If we could get Bannon we’d take him in a heartbeat!
