The Left may see this as a win, but they have no idea what kind of a genie they may have let out of the bottle here.
A federal jury took less than 3 hours to decide that Bannon — who offered no defense, and did not take the stand — was to be found guilty on two counts of Contempt of Congress.
The 68-year-old now faces a minimum of 60 days in prison and a maximum of two years behind bars for refusing to comply last fall wtih a subpoena from the House select committee investigating last month’s Capitol riot, as well as a fine of up to $2,000. His sentencing was set for Oct. 21.
Outside the courthouse, Bannon told reporters that he and his team respected the jury’s verdict, but would move forward with an appeal.
“I stand with Trump and the Constitution, and I will never back off,” the former Breitbart executive chairman said.
Bannon also thanked the court officers and the jury for their participation in his trial before raging against the Jan. 6 panel.
“I only have one disappointment,” he said. “And that is the gutless members of that show trial committee — the J6 committee — that didn’t have the guts to come down here and testify.” — NYPost
Bannon didn’t like the verdict but is very confident of his ability to appeal based on some things the judge himself said. Here is his laywer explaining what comes next.
What the Left doesn’t realize is that they have given Bannon exactly what he wanted. They have turned him into a political martyr who has been target for prosecution by hostile partisans who happen to have their hands on the levers of political power.
They have just given further credibility to every allegation Bannon has ever made against the incestuous relationship between the Democrat partisans and the permanent adminstrative class in the government commonly called the ‘Deep State’.
What Andrew Breitbart famously said to the hostile media…
The right says to the permanent administrative state.
We like them even less than they like us, which is why one of the favorite choruses at MAGA events was ‘drain the swamp’.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
