"The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for awhile," He added, demanding that the NYT quote him, "the media here is the opposition party. They don't understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States. The elite media got it dead wrong, 100 percent dead wrong," Bannon said of the election, calling it "a humiliating defeat that they will never wash away, that will always be there."

“I have no relationship with [Putin] other than he called me a genius. He said Donald Trump is a genius and he is going to be the leader of the party and he’s going to be the leader of the world or something.

“Trump’s particular fascistic personality was forged not in the beer halls of Munich and the trenches of World War I, but in the real estate market of New York City. With his casinos, his fictional universities and his endless stream of failed businesses, this personification of corporate fraud could hardly be a more fitting symbol for the state of American capitalism.” WSWS
Alan Greenspan, who served as Fed Chair for 19 years, was asked in an interview what he thought the relationship between the Federal Reserve Chief and the President of the United States should be. His reply was shockingly candid.
“First of all, the Federal Reserve is an independent agency, and that means basically that there is no other agency of government which can overrule actions that we take. So long as that is in place... then what the relationships are don’t frankly matter.”...
“Federal Reserve-generated increases in money supply cause economic inequality… because, when the Fed acts to increase the money supply, well-to-do investors and other crony capitalists are the first recipients of the new money,” Paul wrote.
“By the time the increased money supply trickles down to middle- and working-class Americans, the economy is already beset by inflation. So most average Americans see their standard of living decline as a result of Fed-engendered money supply increases,” Paul added.
In other words, 'socialism for the rich, capitalism for the poor'. The ultra-wealthy never have to fret over bad investments because they are immune from risk - exactly the thing that makes Capitalism today largely redundant
