Steve Bannon was planning to become the ruler of China.
Instead, he will become the ruler of… I can’t think of anything clever there.
Anyway, this is a part of this whole Jewish scheme to round everyone up, so I’m not going to gloat. But Steve Bannon is a scumbag who legitimately did bring a large element of criminality into the Trump sphere.
Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon blasted the “dying regime” as he walked alongside authorities in handcuffs Thursday.
New York state authorities indicted Bannon Thursday for allegedly defrauding donors to his non-profit group, “We Build The Wall.” Bannon and We Build The Wall are charged with two counts each of second-degree money laundering and fourth-degree conspiracy, and one count each of first-degree scheme to defraud and fifth-degree conspiracy.
ABC News Investigations reporter Olivia Rubin captured Bannon’s statement to the press as he walked away in handcuffs.
“For every conservative American, this is what happens in the last days of a dying regime,” Bannon told reporters in handcuffs. “They will never shut me up, they’ll have to kill me first. I have not yet begun to fight.”

Bannon and the company both pleaded not guilty to all charges, the Associated Press reported.
Authorities indicted Bannon, Andrew Badolato, Timothy Shea, and Air Force veteran Brian Kolfage in August 2020 with the same charges for allegedly raising more than $25 million into “We Build The Wall” non-profit, according to a Department of Justice release. Large portions of the funds were allegedly donated under the false pretenses that it all went toward the construction of the border wall.
Bannon and Kolfage allegedly hid the misappropriation of funds by creating fake invoices and accounts to “launder donations” and cover up their crimes. The two routed donations from another non-profit run by Bannon which gave him $1 million in personal use and Kolfage $350,000 in personal funds.
He’s right about the “dying regime” thing. That’s true.
I think he probably did steal all that money, but everyone is constantly stealing money. It is illegal to solicit donations and then improperly misallocate funds, sure. But it’s incredibly hard to prove someone did that on purpose. Typically, someone would just overpay themselves, and funnel the rest of the money to friends. Proving they intended to steal is difficult.
Bannon is a boomer using computers, so it’s possible he created some totally traceable and provable evidence for the fraud. But even if that is true, the only reason someone would get indicted for this is that the government is out to get them.
I mean, I hate to constantly bring up Crooked Hillary, but her entire life was based on a gigantic money-laundering scheme, where she was actually involved in unambiguously pay to play.
I’ll pour one out for you tonight Steve, you fat Irish slob.
