Washington - Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon says the firing of FBI Director James Comey may have been the biggest mistake in “modern political history.”

Bannon confirmed he opposed President Donald Trump’s decision to oust Comey, calling the FBI “an institution.” Bannon told CBS that institutions such as the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives can be changed “if the leadership is changed.” But he also said the FBI is different.

“I don’t believe that the institutional logic of the FBI, and particularly in regards to an investigation, could possibly be changed by changing the head of it,” Bannon said.

The ousted White House adviser also said that if Comey hadn’t been fired, “We would not have the Mueller investigation,” referring to special counsel Robert Mueller.

Bannon is from the wisest people Trump had around him. And he was an ohev yisroel and a friend of Israel as well. Its a big loss for Trump, America and the jews that he is gone.

The Commey advice was a smart one

You have a propensity to make comments based on your alleged pseudonym while in truth you know very little but make allegations without a base

The allegiance between the Jewish right and Breitbart is on a shared disdain for the left. But what gets lost here...what you, Archie, cavalierly ignore or minimize...is the significance of Breitbart's and Bannon's enabling of anti-Semitic white supremacists, neo-Nazis...and American Nazis mamish.

So Archie...keep on idolizing men who make excuses for marchers who chant Blut und Boden...and keep on shouting Hail Victory. (So who's the kapo now?)

Fake news to besmirch Trump.

Bannon hired Joel Pollak and Aron Klien at Breitbart. Its alot of malarky that it enables white supremacists. And frankly as Bannon pointed out on his Sunday interview the whole neo nazis thing is a few nut jobs that make alot of noise. David Duke yimach shmo is exploiting and playing right into the media narritive that wants to make an issue out of him.

Let me remind you that the left and BDS movements are far more dangerous. AMI magazine had an interview with someone who infiltrated these guys. And as the interviewee pointed out, neo nazis scream and yell about jews taking over the world. Thats very bad. But the left and meetings he attended actually planned and thought out how to fight jews who are taking over the world. They are sneakier and make alot more trouble. That does not negate the evils of neo nazis. But lets put things in perspective. You should be more concerned about the left.

"So Archie...keep on idolizing men who make excuses for marchers who chant Blut und Boden."

And just to point out the typical hyper news tactics you imply that Bannon marched with those chants. That's a lie too.

Archy, now I understand why Trump is doing such a poor job. If Bannon was the wisest, that speaks very poorly of the rest of the cabinet and advisors. Bannon came from that conspiracy obsessed Breitbart "news" which is one of the fakest "news" sites just behind Infowars. Archy, in your mind, Trump can do no wrong.

"Archy, in your mind, Trump can do no wrong. ”

Not true

Three wrongs of Trump
1) His treatment of females and his moral values
2)Personal bullying of candidates
3)His babeish tweets.

I think its really the other way. In your and yonasonw ' minds the man has never done anything right. To me that stinks from bias.

I never wrote anything implying Bannon was a marcher...What I wrote and stand by is that Bannon is one of those who make excuses for the marchers.

So...are you are a sloppy reader, or are you deliberately spinning to conform to your predispositions?

You mean like those that make excuses for fringe left marchers? I don't think Bannon excused the nazis marchers at all. They did excuse the other marchers who were innocent and came to protest the removal of a statue. And so do I. I don't buy the argument oh how can one be innocent if he marched with others who had nazis symbols. It was a huge gathering and not everyone who showed up was aware of what all the marchers were wearing.

Moreover, thsi argument that brietbart who has a bunch of jewish reporters enables anti semites is such nonsense. Its like arguing that the failing NYT enables muslim anti semites. Have you ever read the comments sections under Tom Friedman's editoiral? There is plenty of hate there too. It's a news site that attracts all kinds. Its hyper media to degrade Trump. And its pure malarky.
