tv Sebastian Gorka and Steve Bannon CSPAN October 15, 2017 5:59am-7:00am EDT
he hates us with a passion. ilkonly someone of his could have won the election. only somebody who could not care less about political correctness and was going to call out the fake news about their lives. so number one, he is who he is. secondly, within minutes, it was clear to me this man understands we are at war. he understands the threat from groups like isis, understands the threat from countries like iran or china or russia. the most important thing of all, he wants to win the war with our enemies. that is the present. what happened in the last nine months? here, i will cut you something an analogywill use
from my childhood. i am sure you're familiar with one of his movies, "red door." "red dawn" is about cuba invading the united states, and a scrappy band of insurgents stand up to fight this juggernaut of communism. that is what happened november 8. on november 8, a man who was an outsider, never held public office in his life, wiped the floor with establishment candidates.
as a result, when we moved into the white house a few months later, january 20, it was a scrappy band of insurgents who moved in. it was not a schlep of establishment gop candidates. it was like robin hood taking over the empire. a couple of people gain the reins of an administration that has several million people who work for the federal government. the best description of what happened is the most leveraged hostile takeover in u.s. history. [applause] as a result, it is not surprising, and nobody should be surprised, that over the next few months, the massive establishment swamp treated us as antibodies and did everything they could to box is out, to fire lower-level individualists who were loyalists. eventually, we realized the writing was on the wall. steve and myself realized if we believe in november 8, if we really want to support president, the best way we can
do that is from outside the building. [applause] so bottom line, relax, take a deep breath, count to 10. it will be all ok. this is not about the last eight months. it is about the next eight years. [applause] and then, it is about the following eight years under president pence. [applause] the fact is, the president is surrounded by people who have nothing to do with his original campaign. he has people in high office who not only would have been comfortable in the clinton administration, they would have been cabinet members in a clinton administration. it is ok. why? because i can tell you he does not just talk to people who have
a government id badge. and the president is very loyal to those who are loyal to him. and he must understand, if you have to know one thing about this president, he is a pragmatist. look at what he has done. steve will talk about the amazing things he has done. not only is he a pragmatist with the eye of a businessman, he is a patriot. he loves this country. [applause] i would like to ask for your assistance. if there was a good but here, i would swear on the bible. i would say there is not a racist bone -- nay, not a racist molecule -- in that man's body. [applause] the accusations against myself
and steve, we take that as if you are not taking flak, you're not over the target, right? if the "washington post" or the "new york times" or politico or cnn ever said anything nice about me, you should get your money back. but when the president of the united states is labeled a racist, xenophobic, and anti-semite, when his grandchildren are orthodox jews, it is an outrage. i would like to call upon you as force multipliers to push back on the lies. do not let them get away with it. we are winning already. anderson cooper, the star of cnn, on a good night, gets 700,000 viewers. this is a nation of 333 million americans. very relevant.
they are ranked 13 in national viewership. that is what the american people think of cnn. on the other hand, people like sean hannity, they are crushing it every night. breaking records. so push back on the lies. do not let them get away with it. what about the road ahead? we have to support the president. it is not about one man. it is about what we voted for november 8. there is one thing that underpins everything that was part of our campaign, whether it was the war, whether defeating isis, pulling out of nafta, leaving unesco. all of these things are tied to
tissue -- national sovereignty. we want our sovereignty back. if 1776 means anything today, it is "america" has meaning. it is not some crypto-fascist garbage they accuse us of. because we do not look at people based on skin color. that was the obama regime. we do not divide america. we do not look on you upon your ethnicity, upon your chromosome count, what your sexual preferences are. that's the marxist way dividing people. we look at the u.s. as americans. when we build this wall -- and it is being built -- who we are protecting first? it is not me, not the white
skinned catholic comfortably living in northern virginia. who are we protecting? the newly minted recent immigrants to america, who is on the bottom of the wage scale and is going to be damaged by the guy who comes in illegally, working for free. we are protecting them, whether they are mexican, nigerian. if they are american immigrants, we will protect them as well. that is a priority the president has in front of him every day. the president takes one responsibility ahead of everything else. keeping every single american in this country -- whether you voted for him or not -- keeping you safe. 78% decrease in illegal migration before we build the wall. think about that.
almost 80% decrease. as well as special forces -- a guy told us what we are doing in the middle east, with our military unleashed. we're stacking the jihadis like wood. and making sure every single american has the chance to prosper. there is not going to be handouts. this is not about uncle sam looking out for you. this is about the american dream. giving you the opportunity to prosper. to be safe, to prosper. that is what this president believes in. so what can you do? join the club. do not just sit here and buy tickets to next year's summit. check out what we are doing already. join our team. go to the maga coalition. magacoalition.com. this is my super pac.
it does not represent the usual people. there's no insurance companies, no big pharma. this is for the forgotten men and women who voted for donald trump. if you want to help, drain the swamp, be part of this, join our team. steve said something at cpac. i want to repeat, in case he does not said what he said at cpac. if you think the establishment swamp will give our nation back without a fight, you are sorely mistaken. so let's stand together, come together, and let us make america great again and re-instill in our nation and celebrate the judeo-christian values it was founded on. [applause]
and to quote --i know it is a little early -- but i know it is ok. you will forgive me. to quote my former boss, "merry christmas." [applause] ♪ >> and i think it will be "happy new year," too. i want to mention that sebastian will be doing a book signing, along with steve bannon, and also laura ingraham, during the lunch hour. todd starnes, i think, will also join them. folks, our next speaker is the former chief strategist serving under trump.
here is a veteran of the united states navy, where he served seven years before helping to co-found breitbart news. today, he is executive chairman of breitbart news, which helps keep values voters informed. just through breitbart, we have gone over 800,000 hits on the values voter summit. i would like to see you folks as our studio audience. without further or do, would you please welcome to the stage steve bannon. [applause] ♪ >> thank you very much.
thank you. to everything, there is a season. and a time for every purpose under heaven. a time to be silent, a time to speak out. a time of war and a time of peace. in the ap story today that kicked off my speech before you all, it talks about bannon enlists the value voters in his war against the republican establishment. [applause] this is not my war. this is our war. [applause] the establishment started it. i will tell you one thing.
you all will finish it. [applause] let's talk about -- let's have a discussion about alabama. in alabama, the elites, the permanent political class, as personified by mitch mcconnell and karl rove and that clique that has been running this town 30 years or 40 years, raised over $30 million to go after a good and righteous man, judge moore. this money was not used to debate the great issues of the day. it was not to debate illegal immigration or america's foreign-policy or obamacare. that money was used to destroy
judge moore and his family. the politics of personal destruction, as personified by the permanent political class, is the only way they can win. judge moore raised about $2 million. versus $32 million. a lot of donors called up and said do you want to give money to judge moore. i was telling folks, i do not think that is smart. we have to prove the theory of the case in alabama.
this is a test of wills. we are going to determine down there who is more powerful. the money of the corporatists or the money of the people. you know all of us folks, you know why they are taking these photos? this is not about me. not about seb gorka, not about laura ingraham. not about our beloved commander in chief, donald j. trump. they are here because of you. they fear you. and they fear you, because they understand you've had a belly full of it, and you're taking your country back. [applause] and from the city of london to beijing to the gulf to washington, d.c., silicon valley, wall street, they're nervous. they understand you are the
transmission of the best values of the judeo-christian way. the one thing we proved in is that money does not matter anymore. era -- thetal internet has helped the mainstream media and the party bosses -- what has made the analog world even more important -- with good people to back him amount of be any money. -- we can beat any amount of money. here is what is great about alabama.
take a little riff on breitbart and shakespeare -- this looks like the fourth ides of march. they are looking to see who will be your brutus to julius caesar. donors are not happy. they have all left. get your oxygen. right now, money is sitting and is angry. here are the reasons they are mad. you talk about hate. why don't you talk to your ask them.clients
why don't you answer for all of the foundations of all of these guys to put the money in, let's look at their economic crime. they have gutted this country, you've taken their money, and you call these good people, hate crime perpetuaters, because the tried to put forth the best values of a civilization around for thousands of years. that is a hate crime? we are in the valley of decision. this is a fourth great turning in american history. this is the fourth. we are going to be one thing, is going to take 5, 10, 20, 25
years to go through this. we will be one thing or the other on the other side of it. we will either be the country that was bequeathed from previous generations to you, or we will be something else. in this valley of decision, it's not about mark meadows, donald trump, ted cruz, mike lee and the great leaders of the conservative movement. the burden is on you. the burden is on your shoulders. on the morning of november 8, i told the president, i got in there in august when he was 16 points down.
no money. not a lot of organization. i said, if we pull this thing together, 100% metaphysical certitude you will win. on billy bush saturday, everyone was jumping ship. no one is making justifications for what the president he said, including the president. i told him, 100% metaphysical certitude you will win. folks are looking for change in this country. they are looking to take their country back, and you are the vehicle and instrument that is going to do it. they don't care about locker room talk. because we are going to bring to that debate the women that will you jefferson clinton attacked and his wife covered for him. we're going to let the american people decide between your words and his action.
that is why i am a street fighter. i am about winning. you know why? we have to win. this next 15, 20 years, and i would love to tell you we could wave a magic wand, i would love to tell you president trump could snap his fingers and it would be better. but it is not. every day is going to be a grind. every day is going to test you. here is the good news, i know you will not have it any other way. let's go back to alabama. since the associated press called judge moore, i think it was 9:00 at night. earlier in the day, there was
bob corker. he called the president, this is a guy who had $6 billion in the bank or thereabouts. chairman of the senate foreign relations committee, most prestigious on capitol hill. the one he raised the most money on a state for the banking committee and the state president trump one by some outrageous number. he did not have an opponent. according to him, president trump disagrees with this, president trump said he would endorse them. money, prestige and the endorsement of the president, and he quit.
inside the republican party, why are you going after folks like deb fischer and heller who vote the right way? as bob corker has trashed the commander-in-chief of our armed forces while we have many women in harm's way. he has said he is leaving him on a path toward war three, he is not stable, people have to keep him moderated, it is an adult center and they took the morning shift off. by some u.s. senator in the position of authority for the first time in history of the republic, has mocked and ridiculed the commander-in-chief when we have kids in the field. have i seen barrasso condemned that? have i seen heller condemned that? you have not. these folks are coming for you. no one can run and hide from this. the day of making a few conservative votes and hiding is over. [applause]
>> these folks are not rubes. they are not idiots. i am on his graduate of harvard business school and i worked at goldman sachs. if you ask me if i would rather be governed by the first 100 people who walked into this conference today or the top 100 partners at goldman sachs, i would take first hundred people every day of the week. [applause] >> because of the common sense, decency, intelligence, great and determination would ensure that our country would be safe and prosperous, and so what the world. let's look at the elite, and why we positioned hillary clinton as the guardian or tribune of the elite. these geniuses said the sky is unfit, trump is unfit to be commander-in-chief.
look at what they have foisted on president trump in the first couple of months of his administration. you have the bay of pigs in venezuela, the cuban missile crisis and korea, the annan in afghanistan. that is not his doing. that is what all of these geniuses have been doing the last 20 or 30 years. this is the same crowd that said if we just let china have most favorite nations and let them in the wto, they will be free market capitalism. that played out well. china has been a confusion mercantilist society for 400 years. they know what they are doing. they are running the tables on us. they are at full economic war with us.
don't listen to me, look at the economy. read the studies coming out of m.i.t. and harvard that says there is a direct correlation between the factories and jobs that leave for china and the opioid crisis. this revolt that drove donald trump to victory, judge moore to victory, and will drive us to victory in 2018, and i hate to break the news to grading carter and the good folks of vanity fair, president trump is going to win with 400 electoral votes in 2020. [applause]
>> why is this a populist revolt? you guys have more common sense, more understanding of what we need to do, more decency that the elites. the first order of business is to undo all of the damage of globalism that allowed silicon valley and wall street and hollywood and the imperial capital here in washington, d.c. and london and beijing and davos. the reason we did populism is there are bigger, more crucial decisions coming down the road in the next 10 or 20 years, the convergence of biotechnology, artificial intelligence, the computer chip, there will be decisions in front of mankind in the next 20 years that man has never had to face before. if you think that the elites that got the world into the
situation it is today are going to make the right judgments 20 years from now, you are mistaken. it is folks like you that have to tell folks this is not a science experiment, this is not an engineering exercise, you are free men and women in the greatest republic in the history of earth. [applause] >> why are we nationalists? it is not ethno-nationalism, it is as economic nationalism. it doesn't matter your ethnicity, your gender, your religion, your sexual preference, it does not matter. it does not matter. as long as you are a citizen of this republic, that is what matters. [applause] >> economic nationalism binds us together. economic nationalism is the
understanding we will bring jobs back, it is not the second law of thermodynamics why they left. there is no inexorable law that took the jobs to asia and those factories to asia and left us with gutted communities of opioid addicts. that was human agency, decisions of men and women that did that. and it was decisions of men and women that will bring the factories back and bring the jobs back. [applause] >> the smart folks on the democratic party, and trusted there are smart folks there, they understand that. they had their conference a couple of weeks ago, no identity politics. the brought in the mad bomber, he will destroy his enemies on the way down is what they said.
what you saw was a highly disciplined campaign run on populism and the rule of law. hillary came out, she was on the beach raising money, they were running for corners offense. she came out after about a week, i was sitting in the war room -- and we had the tv sets and the men and women working on rapid response, she had not given a speech in a month. it was white supremacists, bannon, alt-right. i said, if that is what she is going to bring, we will run the tables on her. [applause] >> one thing about economic nationalism, and by the way, understand we don't all agree on everything. there are plenty of folks for
cato, aei, and heritage that we have to convert. [laughter] >> they don't agree that free trade is a radical idea. but no vibrant nation has ever really agreed with that. the chinese certainly don't, the japanese don't, the koreans don't. that's why they have the manufacturing jobs, by the way. economic nationalism, one of the parts of it, it is the centerpiece of the value voters. for too long, this school of economics head of thinking that -- for too long, this school of economics had us thinking that everything is about the economy. you have to look at the jobless rate six weeks before the election, that will determine who wins. everything is about gross domestic product. all of those statistics are important. that is not it at all. we are a civic society and a culture that has a capitalist free market system as our economy. but we are not in economy. you are not just units of production. you are free men and women in a
civic society underpinned by a capitalist system, but where other people in the world don't practice capitalism, we have to be savvier than that. we have to be smarter. we will be. president trump has seen to that. his trade agenda. that is what won us pennsylvania and wisconsin and michigan and iowa. and almost won minnesota. that's how you are going to win 400 electoral votes. democrats understand they have to come back with an economic program, it will be trump light. president trump has had these ideas for 30 or 40 years. he is a very savvy businessman. he did not come to the party late. this is a guy worth billions of dollars, i don't know if it is
4, 5, 7, 10. at some point you have to quit counting. a beautiful wife, tremendous kids, great grandkids, a loving family. the friends he has are unbelievable. you see these people who have hung out with him for decades. these people love him. he has business with the finest hotels in the world. he was buying not just golf courses, but buying championship golf courses make even better and put them in the british open or the u.s. open. things that could be like as his friend. he did not do this for any kind of ego gratification, is let me tell you, you don't understand how they try to destroy him and how tough it is every day when they come after you. and they come after your family and kids and friends. they come after your business. they were not there to debate donald trump. hillary clinton is going around
the country with her book, she still cannot tell anybody why she should be president of the united states. [laughter] >> she can whine about all the bad things she things happen to -- she thinks happened to her but she cannot make a convincing case of why she should be president. she cannot take on donald trump's ideas. they wanted to use the $2 billion just to destroy him. on the morning of the ninth, i think we won at 3:00 in the morning, that coalition with reince priebus and the rnc, we won. as i always knew we would. but the key that picked the lock in north carolina, florida, pennsylvania, ohio, iowa, michigan and wisconsin, was you. [applause] >> ask tony perkins, he has the numbers, he will walk you through. the turnout of evangelical
christians and conservatives was thes -- that difference in victory. [applause] >> i was most nervous about north carolina. it was not the weekend before but the weekend before that, i was in north carolina with the president, and mark meadows came up to me and said, we got this. i said, i don't know. he said, we got this. the evangelicals are going door-to-door, getting the vote out, conservative catholics going door-to-door. the hobbits are going door-to-door in the shire. trust me, they know all of the math. they know what you did in alabama. on november 9, i will tell you one thing. we were a little bit island of misfit toys. it only came together and 88 days.
but i will tell you, and i had a conversation with jeff sessions one-time when he was under the most pressure at doj, i said, is there any doubt in your mind that the hand of providence was critical to our victory? he said, absolutely. divine providence worked that victory, just like divine providence worked for judge moore. [applause] >> hand of providence does not work through some sort of magic or voodoo. it is human agency, and that is you. we're going to have a lot of these conversations and a lot of fights ahead.
the first one is, before we can get to the progressive democrats and southern poverty law center, and we will take them on and stand them down, ok? [applause] >> there is no doubt about that. but there is a time and season for everything. right now, it is a season of war against a gop establishment. [applause] >> it is no longer acceptable to come and patch on the head until you everything will be fine, just get these guys in office. those days are over. we need to move with urgency. the president of the united states deserves the respect and support. [applause]
>> of all of the insults that senator corker threw at the commander-in-chief during a time of war, i think it was someone at the washington post and peter baker from the new york times, they buried the lead, corker said he gave up the game. there are only one or two senators who have respect for admiration for president trump. the rest of them talk like i do behind closed doors. all of you folks that are so concerned you are going to get defeated in primaries, there is a time for mea culpa. you can condemn senator corker.
you can come to a microphone and say i am not going to vote for mitch mcconnell for majority leader. [applause] >> and you can come to a stick and say, i'm going to do away with the filibuster so the president can implement his program. [applause] senator barrasso, senator fisher and heller and hatch, these are good folks, they may reconsider. until that time, they are coming for you. [applause] >> i have gone over my allotted time, i will wrap up in the second. you sound like my colleagues in the white house. not.
i am going to come out and give you a hug. the president needs our support more than ever. look at what happened, and here is what happens when the president knows he has your support. partisanve a discussion, the president had some bad information and advice given to him and had some folks, the kind of things that were not so. i told him in alabama where i was going to stand. with the men and women that got him in office. let's look at what has happened since alabama. a 70 point program for daca, including 20 deal killers. just to be sure that nancy pelosi got the joke, no pathway to citizenship. that was the first thing.
the next, you have the religious liberty eo that was gutted, surprise, 25 page memo from attorney general sessions, everything turned around. got out of unesco. the treasury secretary said there will be a middle-class tax cut, and it will be for working-class people, i guarantee. then you have obamacare, they are going to blow the exchanges up. [applause] >> and lo and behold, we're going to decertify and get out
of the iran deal and named the igrc a terrorist organization. those are not random events. that is victory begets victory. we owe that to judge moore and the good men and women in alabama, because that all came from them. [applause] >> every day is like christmas day now. i cannot wait to get up, there will be a new package. this is what we always wanted. next week -- i think they are going to announce the muslim brotherhood a terrorist organization and move our embassy to jerusalem. [applause]
>> that's right, mitch mcconnell is working triple time on getting judges approved. funny how that works. victory begets victory, it is simple. we keep winning and good things will keep happening. we keep winning, and your country will be safe. we keep winning, and you folks, you, will be the folks that saved the judeo-christian west. [applause] >> we don't have anything to offer you except a lot of work. we will lose some, there will
not be all victories. we are going it will take a long to have good days and bad days. time. it is not any one election, this is not november 9 or september 26, it has to be every day. but if you folks don't do it, and the people your proxies for, your organizations, it is not going to happen and we will lose this. but i can guarantee you one thing. there are good men and women out there that saw the lesson of judge moore and donald trump, because the lesson that the permanent political class tried to say that if you stand up, you will be destroyed. if you go against what they stand for, you will be destroyed. but folks out there know, if you have their back you are the key that picks the lock. [applause]
>> there is a chinese philosopher, i think 2000 years ago, that the leader is best -- that when the main objectives are achieved, the people themselves say look at what we accomplished. that means it is all on you. it is not donald trump, mark meadows, ted cruz, laura ingraham or steve bannon, it is you. tonight when you pray for your country and the servicemen and president trump and his family, say a prayer for yourselves. because 100 years from now, they will look back and hold you accountable for what you did in the next 5, 10, 15, 20 years. if we stick together and show
the same tenacity, great and courage as you showed in alabama, we will win and they will lose. [applause] >> thank you. ♪ >> coming up, live, your calls and comments on "washington journal." and then utah congressman. they will talk about tax reform. >> everything was devastating for him. he was isolated and alone. >> tonight, the author and professor william and his biography, "gorbachev." >> he trusted the soviet people
to follow him where they had never gone before. to democratize their country in a few short years. him asted them to follow he moved the economy to a market economy. as he made peace in the cold war. them too much, it turned out. >> tonight, at 8:00, on c-span's, "q&a." on "washington journal" jenny beth martin calls on mitch mcconnell to resign. and then emily holden speaks on the clean power plan. and later, the former cbs and nbc chief diplomati
