Stephen K. Bannon, Lee Smith, Darren Beattie, Dave Ramaswamy, and Raheem Kassam saw it coming before it happened. Now they react after it’s all out in the open.
“I’m the guy who says there is no deep state, there are no conspiracies,” said Bannon. “They’re saying, ‘No, no, Bannon you’re actually wrong.”
It’s all in writing: “a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information” in order to subvert the election.
Ramaswamy, the Principal at Indus Latin Ventures, explains how this is the “manager industrial complex” who works behind the scenes no matter who is in office.
They are the “intermediaries between the voter and the ballot box to manage democracy.”
“It’s a screw you,” said Kassam. “Not only did we have this grand conspiracy but now we’re going to do a victory lap about it.”
Lee Smith says it reveals who really is in charge. “These are the people who are now running America,” he said. “Ruling — not governing — the country against the interest of ordinary Americans.”
However, the TIME article brings a moment of clarity: It’s all out in the open now.
The fight against the global elite versus freedom and truth is on display and “it’s got to be confronted today,” said Bannon.
