Early Warning for 12 December

ADMIN NOTE: I apologize for being late this morning. I was watching the Steve Bannon speech from last night, where he talks about two important issues for us here at Forward Observer.

Good morning. Here’s your Early Warning for Tuesday, 12 December 2017.

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon spoke at an Alabama rally for Senate candidate Roy Moore on Monday night, where he described the special election as being between the “Trump miracle” and the “nullification process”. There are two really big, cryptic messages in this speech.

1. After speaking about Republican establishment who have opposed the Trump agenda, Steve Bannon seems to warn that Republicans will turn on President Trump after the tax cuts are passed. “That corporate tax cut, that’s all they [establishment Republicans] want him for. As soon as they get that tax cut, you watch what happens. There’s a special place in hell for Republicans who should know better.” The nature of the speech seems to indicate that once the Congress passes a tax cut, establishment Republicans will increase opposition to President Trump’s America First agenda.

2. Bannon made mention of the Fourth Turning, an academic theory postulated in 1997 that generational cycles make domestic conflicts more predictable. The next Fourth Turning — the peak of the ‘crisis generation’ — is the early 2020s. “Eventually we set things right. We’re in the great Fourth Turning here,” Bannon said during the speech, indicating that he believes another revolutionary phase is likely in America.
