Far-right intellectuals like Steve Bannon claim to speak for a working class put upon by out-of-touch liberal elites. But their anti-modernist, hierarchical vision of the world doesn’t offer workers what they really need: more money in their pockets, and more power at the workplace.Far-Right Intellectuals Are Offering Workers a Rotten Deal
Traditionalism, Steve Bannon, and World Politics
Australia’s Murdoch media and the Wuhan COVID-19 lab conspiracy theory
What they missed:
How a Bannon-linked conspiracy theory about coronavirus origins landed on Murdoch-owned media, including Fox News
A week later, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s Media Watch debunked the story with a roundup of reporting on the many holes in Markson’s work. According to its report, GNews was one of the earliest reported adopters of the conspiracy theory based on the discredited 2015 book.
The debunk explained that “a host of China experts say the book is not outlining China’s plans for biowarfare” but rather “it’s looking at defense against Western attacks, which it claims have already started.” Media Watch also noted that the document Markson based her reporting on is a readily available book that can be purchased online.
Trump seizes on “Wuhan lab” lies in North Carolina speech
Since Biden assigned this task to the CIA and similar outfits, which have no medical expertise but plenty of experience in frame-ups and provocations, rather than to the NIH and CDC, it is clear that the administration expects the intelligence community to produce a propaganda case for global sanctions against China.
In embracing what they all know is a conspiracy theory concocted by Chinese exiles and fascistic provocateurs like Steve Bannon, Trump’s former campaign chairman and White House adviser, the US political establishment has given new political life to the widely discredited fabrications of Trump and his most deranged supporters.

Did “America First” conservatives really “win” the battle over the GOP’s congressional leadership last week? Old-guard Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney may be out of power as the House Republican Conference chair. But her replacement, New York GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik, is a swampy shape-shifter whose campaign coffers are filled with open borders, radical social liberal, Wall Street cash.Beware Elise Stefanik’s Moneyman
Opportunist?! She’s voted against Trump’s “American First’ agenda.
Stefanik privately pledges to serve only through 2022 in House GOP leadership
In Interview With Bannon, Stefanik Cozies Up To Big Lie While Praising Sketchy AZ Audit
Elise Stefanik insists Trump is ‘the president’ in bid to snag GOP leadership spot
As Ann Coulter said, “if people flatter [Trump], he’s for them, regardless of what they believe. And so the question is: Do you go for Trumpism? Or do you go for Trump?”
The Republican ‘War Room’: Inside Steve Bannon’s effort to galvanize the right
The show has encouraged those on the far right to, as one guest laid out earlier this year, “invade” the Republican Party by becoming local GOP precinct committee officers — an effort that has gained momentum since Trump left office. But the show’s central focus has been China, specifically examining the role the Chinese government played in the pandemic. On the show, conspiracies involving Dr. Anthony Fauci, China and the election are all inextricably linked.
