There is no question that Wall Street has been running fiscal and monetary policy for decades, regardless of which party or President has been in power. Some of the more recent big picture connections are discussed in this clip. One thing for sure, no one has been looking out for the ‘little guy’, least of all Donald J. Trump.

Steve Bannon was fired from the White House on Friday, August 18th, 2017, but most of the media is missing the story of Robert Mercer, the billionaire that brought Bannon to the White House. Here is a direct video link.

In an interesting footnote to this thesis, a Vanity Fair piece yesterday (see Steve Bannon readies his revenge) looks at the fallout of Bannon’s ouster and notes:

“Bannon has media ambitions to compete with Fox News from the right. Last week in New York, he huddled with his billionaire benefactor, Robert Mercer, and discussed ways to expand Breitbart into TV…

At Breitbart, Bannon has a brigade of similarly happy warriors. “We’re in a loud bar celebrating the return of our captain!” Breitbart’s Washington editor Matt Boyle told me on Friday night. Breitbart’s defense of Trump has so far helped keep the Russia scandal from gaining traction on the right. But that could swiftly change if Trump, under the influence of Kushner and Cohn, deviates too far from the positions he ran on. If that happens, said one high-level Breitbart staffer, “We’re prepared to help Paul Ryan rally votes for impeachment.”

Apparently Brietbart, Bannon and Mercer feel confident they can make or break the President depending on his adherence to their agenda.  This could get very interesting.
