Steve Bannon was ejected from the White House, pilloried by the mainstream media and GOP establishment, and expected to fade into oblivion following his public disgrace.
However, rumors of Bannon’s demise have been greatly exaggerated. Following his humiliation, Bannon hit the grindstone and traveled to Europe where he has been able to arrange a stable of top political talent who are lending their ears to the notorious rabble-rouser.
Bannon has recently founded “the Movement” in Europe, a coalition that intends to unite populist right-wing leaders in opposition to the European Union. The most recent addition to the Movement is Matteo Salvini, Italy’s interior minister who has been fighting to keep dangerous third-world refugees out of his nation.
Mischaël Modrikamen, a Belgian politician closely allied with Bannon who co-founded the People’s party, made the announcement in a Tweet.

Bannon also met with Giorgia Meloni this week. Meloni is another right-wing Italian leader close to Salvini who founded the Brothers of Italy party. Establishment observers are taking notice of this dangerous alliance being formed by Bannon and the potential it has to completely re-shape European politics.
“Italy has become a laboratory of European populism,’’ said Massimiliano Panarari, who teaches politics at the Luiss School of Government in Rome, to The Guardian. “The country risks moving away not only from Europe, but also from western democracies.”
Globalist puppets Angela Merkel of Germany and Emmanuel Macron of France have to be shaking in their boots at the prospects of this populist network rising to prominence, but Sloppy Steve must be careful not to repeat the mistakes of the past. Otherwise, he may flame out in Europe like he did in America under DJT.
