Bannon told French media that “France is the place to be, with its young entrepreneurs, women of the family Le Pen” and that “Marion Maréchal-Le Pen is the new rising star”. They hold similar views on immigration.
Marion has expressed her support for the American campaigner and has agreed to work with him as he expands his media organisation to France. The move could cement relations between the Trump White House and the Le Pen family as nationalist politics surges across the world.
Bannon has been described as “the most dangerous political operative in America” By Bloomberg. Now he is one of the most powerful.
On Sunday night Trump’s team confirmed that the Alt-Right’s Bannon has been announced as Donald Trump’s chief strategist, with Reince Priebus appointed as chief of staff.
The racist, fascist extreme right is represented footsteps from the Oval Office. Be very vigilant America.

Dan Pfeiffer, former senior adviser to President Barack Obama, noted: “Nation exhales because white nationalist only gets second most influential job in White House.”
“I come from a blue-collar, Irish Catholic, pro-Kennedy, pro-union family of Democrats,” Bannon told Bloomberg. “I wasn’t political until I got into the service and saw how badly Jimmy Carter fucked things up. I became a huge Reagan admirer. Still am.”
Former French prime minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin commented on the latest developments: “The boundaries of reason disappeared with Brexit, the main lesson for France is that Le Pen can win.”
Marine Le Pen has predicted the demise of “undemocratic” EU, because “there’s no reason for it to continue” she says. The French politician says that Trump’s election victory could help the EU’s disintegration.
Le Pen blasted the European Union saying a similar unelected bloc would not last long. The French National Front leader hopes a French referendum will spur the rest of Europe to join the march to follow Britain out of the Union.
Speaking on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show, the French politician said she wouldn’t be shocked if referendums across the member states would spring yet more political surprise.
She said: “What I hope is that we do ask this question to the French people and that in fact, we ask this question to all Europeans too.
“There’s absolutely no reason why the European Union should continue to move forward in this totalitarian way. At some time we have to stop and ask the question to the people of the various European countries, ‘do you still agree with all of this, do you agree with what the EU has become?'” she declared.
“I’m absolutely convinced that if we did ask the question through a referendum in each country, the elites would be in for another surprise,” Le Pen added.
Marr pressured Le Pen on a possible timescale that could see the bloc completely disband, but she only said she would like to see it as “quickly as possible”.
“You must have noticed that each time a referendum is organised, each time an election is organised, each time it’s anything to do with the EU people want to express their disagreement. There is a hostility towards the EU – how long can a political system last even though it is not elected and is working against the will of the people it’s trying to rule? In a democracy, it shouldn’t last for two minutes.”
Le Pen expressed hope that Donald Trump’s landmark US election victory, could be the catalyst for patriotic movements to gain votes in elections around Europe. She added: “Clearly Donald Trump’s victory is an additional stone in the building of a new world destined to replace the old one. Obviously, we have to compare this victory with the rejection of the European Constitution by the French people.”
Nationalists in Europe welcomed Trump’s election win, with Hungarian PM Viktor Orbán remarking: “What great news. Democracy is still alive.”
But UKIP has refused to associate itself with Le Pen’s party. Le Pen is not discouraged however. “Sorry, no, but objectively, there is, on the topic of immigration and the European Union, there is not a hair’s breadth of difference between what UKIP thinks and what the National Front, let’s be truthful here.
“Maybe UKIP is trying to counter the demonisation they are victim of by saying ‘we are the good guys and the National Front are the bad guys’, they can do so, but I don’t feel obliged to follow this strategy, because, I feel it’s a little bit ridiculous.”

According to researcher Ali Harandi of the University of Gothenburg, vaccines affect periods. Hundreds of Scandinavian women have reported menstrual disorders after being vaccinated against Covid-19.
HeidelbergThe director of the Pathological Institute of the University of Heidelberg, Peter Schirmacher, has carried out over forty autopsies on people who had died within two weeks of their vaccination. Schirmacher expressed alarm over his findings.
ParisOpposition against the health pass in France has increased significantly. According to figures from the Ministry of the Interior, 204 090 demonstrators, including about 14 250 in Paris, marched in the country against mandatory jabs. In total, 184 marches against President Macron's draconian measures were identified.
RomeItalian deputies from the Brothers of Italy party protested against the health pass measure on July 29 by derailing a session in parliament.
LondonThe British Vaccine Deployment Minister Nadhim Zahawi stretched the incredulity of his subjects once again by announcing that people who have received placebo jabs would be regarded as "fully vaccinated". According to Zahawi, fake shots would be considered proof of vaccination status.
LyonThe SUD Santé Social union of the Édouard-Herriot hospital in Lyon filed a strike notice in order to oppose the compulsory vaccination of caregivers and the exclusion of unvaccinated patients. It will begin on July 29, for an unlimited period.
MadridSpanish legal experts consider it a scandal that the Sánchez government "does not want to submit to parliamentary control" with the new National Security Law.
The aggressive promotion of Covid vaccine passports and draconian vaccine mandates by globalists are not going as smoothly as they had hoped. Vaccinated people can still get infected and transmit disease, so this clearly eliminates the argument that the unvaccinated bring harm to others. And how safe are the jabs?
BerlinGerman critics of the Corona measures are now almost routinely denied the basic right to gather peacefully in the open air. Anyone who wants to hold a counter-demonstration against such rallies can also expect it to be approved.
The single most important objective of mass vaccination with Covid-19 vaccines was to achieve herd immunity. This is no longer within reach. Now "experts" not only blame disappointing vaccine coverage rates but also the unvaccinated.
