Steve Bannon and the "christian" right on NPR

Postby Stephen Fox » Fri Feb 03, 2017 2:57 pm

http://www.npr.org/2017/02/02/513041005 ... s-on-trump

Read this interview carefully or listen carefully online. From Feb 2 NPR Fresh Air.

Provocative interview with implications for Jeff Sessions, the intellectual godfather of Steve Bannon's nationalist movement.

Lot of implications for the warp and woof of Alabama Baptists and the snakepit of Yellowhammer News, Rick and Bubba, FBC Gardendale whose former pastor Steve Gaines now fills Adrian Rogers pulpit at Bellevue, and Church of the Highlands in Jeff Sessions home state.

Cliff Simms of YHammer News is now in communications dept of Bannons Trump White house.

She referenced former Furman President Gordon Great friend, Max Heller, Beloved Mayor of Greenville for whom Furman service corps is named. In a Run for Congress Heller was defeated by Lee Atwater and Carroll Campbell which paved the way for Franklin Graham's hero Trey Gowdy.

Bama Baps Man in the White House

Postby Stephen Fox » Tue Mar 07, 2017 3:46 pm

That's Cliff Simms of Yellowhammer News. He was back in Bham at least on for two hours Friday on the Yellowhammer News hour of WYDE Radio. Andrea Tice is now featured in that slot, her husband John of Church of Brook Hills Staff, whose recent pastor became head of the SBC NAMB.

With Rick Burgess and Steve /Gaines FBC Gardendale in the "Faith, Freedom, and Firearms" and might I add residual Birch Society network interesting mix The Alabama Baptist to my knowledge is yet to examine.

For certain the GOP Lifer Myth of the Southern Strategy piece is spot on for Bama in this Trump moment.

Andrea Tice is a Luther Rice grad and fits the profile.

Burgess said the email writer didnt have his "facts" straight about sanctification.

Question now in Bama is

Postby Stephen Fox » Wed Jul 12, 2017 10:59 am

How will steve Bannon and Stephen Miller navigate the story on the Marine who left the NRA. Could be a difference maker in the Lt Gov Race here where a PCA Presbyterian Will Ainsworth of Guntersville Alabama is staring down the daughter of a Bama QB legend from the days of the Bear, Scott Hunter's daughter Mary Scott. MScott is now a member of the state board of education and seems to have a little bearing. At least she hasn't blocked me from her facebook wall like Ainsworth has
