A commenter wrote a while back that Trump or anyone from his inner circle could signal that they secretly vacation at Chateau Heartiste by inconspicuously dropping the word “shiv” somewhere in a tweet or press statement.
This story comes from the #FakeNews Daily Beast outlet. I will not provide a direct link to them and would counsel readers to take anything written there with a flat of salt.
Steve Bannon Calls Jared Kushner a ‘Cuck’ and ‘Globalist’ Behind His Back
Donald Trump’s chief strategist Stephen Bannon has called the president’s senior advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner a “cuck” and a “globalist” during a time of high tension between the two top aides, several Trump administration officials told The Daily Beast.
The fighting between Kushner and Bannon has been “nonstop” in recent weeks, according to sources who spoke on condition of anonymity. It’s been an “open secret” that Bannon and Kushner often clash “face-to-face,” according to senior officials.
One official said Bannon has lately complained about Kushner trying to “shiv him and push him out the door” and likened him to a fifth column in the White House.
Now “shiv” isn’t a tremendously uncommon word, but it’s not exactly within most people’s regular lexicon. Yet I’ve been seeing it crop up in the last few months in news stories, and as the preen overcomes me I must insist that this ‘umble realtalk abode (re)popularized the term for a mass alt-audience. My shiv sense is telling me Bannon and/or other close associates of Trump read this blog.
Recently, I lamented on Gab,
Kushner globohomo camp won. Bannon nationalist camp lost. Shakespeare had something to say about this. It was always going to be family that would be the undoing of President Trump.
…in reference to the news about Bannon getting pushed out of White House national security meetings.
This was always my biggest concern: that Trump, his inner circle comprising globohomist New York hyperliberals (both Kushners, Cohn, Powell) and ultrawoke nationalists (Bannon, Miller), would eventually betray his nationalist message for his family. My fears look to have been justified.
Bannon is a self-described “nationalist” and long-time Republican, while Kushner was, until his father-in-law ran for president, a lifelong liberal and a Democratic donor.
ed: it’s in the clan’s blood. and blood type never changes.
“There’s a big fight [going on],” one senior official said. “It’s all about policy. There’s tension [between them] on trade, health care, immigration, taxes, [terrorism]—you name it.” […]
“Steve thinks Jared is worse than a Democrat, basically,” another official close to Bannon said. “[Steve] has a very specific vision for what he believes, and what he shares [ideologically] with Trump. And he has for a long time now seen [Jared] as a major obstacle to achieving that.”
However, it’s clear that Kushner has been expanding his reach and level of influence in Trump’s core circle of advisers, and that the two men are essentially working against one another as they attempt to keep the president’s ear and affections.
“I love a gunfight,” Bannon told his associates and allies since Wednesday, according to Axios.
Heritage America better hope Bannon wins this duel, but it’s not looking good so far. Trump’s loyalty is legendary, and his family will come first always. If his family doesn’t much care for Trump’s populist-nationalism message — the core reason his base supports him — then I’m afraid we’re in for a rough four years as the Jared Wormtongues whisper the equivalent of “America Last”.
If my fears prove misplaced, I’ll retch up all the blackpills I took this week and swear allegiance to the one true Golden Pill.
