The Boston Globe’s Matt Viser profiles Trump chief strategist Steve Bannon’s time as a student at Harvard Business School. Though Bannon — who grew up in a working class Irish Catholic family in Richmond, Virginia, working at a junk yard during his summer breaks — was not from an Ivy League pedigree, he earned a coveted spot in the prestigious school after serving in the U.S. Navy and earning undergraduate and post-graduate degrees at Virginia Tech and Georgetown University. Bannon’s Harvard classmates remember him as a gregarious and intellectually gifted leader with a knack for cutting to the heart of an issue.
Many in the Washington establishment are urging President-elect Donald Trump to choose Mitt Romney for Secretary of State, but his senior advisor Kellyanne Conway is giving the grassroots anti-Romney movement a voice.
UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage has taken one step closer to backing Front National candidate Marine Le Pen in the French presidential elections in 2017, declaring that if Ms. Le Pen wins, the European Union project will collapse entirely. Mr. Farage, who has been known to harbour concerns about the Front National as a party, told the Sunday Express newspaper that he will be backing the “utterly respectable Eurosceptic” France Arise candidate in the first round. But he also hinted that in the second round, which his preferred candidate Nicolas Dupont-Aignan is unlikely to reach, he may back Ms. Le Pen in order to bring down the EU. “I know her. She’s very determined, brilliant on TV. I mean absolutely brilliant,” he said, before adding: “When you watch her making her argument and you can see her getting into it she is really good at it. There’s lots of baggage and that’s the problem.” The baggage he refers to is the Front National’s history. Founded in 1972 by Jean-Marie Le Pen, Marine Le Pen’s father, the party hosted some unsavoury characters and Mr. Le Pen himself has been the subject of repeated controversy given his statements minimising the Holocaust amongst a

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” while discussing Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein initiating recounts of the presidential vote in the swing states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton supporting the effort, the host of the liberal online program “The Young Turks” Cenk Uygur said the Trump team seems “jittery” about the recount. Uygur said, “A recount is a perfectly normal part of the process. If you go outside of the process, I would be with you. We were on Trump for doing that. I totally agree it would be hypocritical. But if you’re within a percent and there are rules in every state on this, perfectly right to call for a recount. You know, i saw the interview earlier in the show. I don’t know why they’re so nervous. They’re just so jittery about it. No recount, no recount. Don’t do a recount. If you think you won, the recount will show the same thing.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
USA Today, by Trevor Hughes Posted By: NorthernDog- Sun, 27 45 2016 04:45:59 GMT The Canadian prime minister’s oddly warm remembrance of Fidel Castro set social media aflame Saturday as Castro’s many critics pilloried Justin Trudeau’s statement calling the dead dictator a controversial and “larger than life leader” but stopping far short of condemning his actions. (Snip) Sen. Ted Cruz, R’Texas, whose father fled Cuba during the Castro years, called Trudeau’s statement “disgraceful. Why do young socialists idolize totalitarian tyrants? Castro, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot — all evil, torturing murderers.” Other Twitter users, as you’d expect, took it a lot further, using the #trudeaueulogies tag to mock the prime minister and satirize his comments.
