Bannon Behind Bars

Steve Bannon Ordered to Prison as Biden Honors D-Day Heroes

Steve Bannon, Donald Trump's former advisor, has been ordered to report to prison by July 1 to serve a four-month sentence for contempt of Congress. Bannon was convicted for failing to comply with a subpoena from the January 6 committee. As I noted during the show, Bannon briefed his associates in China just days before January 6 about Trump's plans to declare victory despite losing at the polls. Bannon also faces separate charges related to the “We Build the Wall" campaign in New York.

In other news, The Department of Justice is investigating potential illegal price fixing by corporate landlords. This particularly involves using RealPage software to coordinate higher rental prices, a practice that is reportedly prevalent in key 2024 swing states like Arizona, Florida, and Georgia. Rising rents, a major driver of inflation and cost-of-living concerns, directly affect many voters.

The episode featured a powerful speech by President Biden, commemorating the 80th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy. Biden's speech was a poignant reminder of the immense bravery and sacrifice of the Allied troops who turned the tide of World War 2. He underscored the importance of alliances and issued a warning that democracy is under threat today from autocrats and dictators. Biden also made a significant pledge of continued U.S. and NATO support for Ukraine in its fight against Russia's invasion.

This show underscores the high stakes and critical threats to democracy as the 2024 election approaches. From exposing the January 6 insurrection to combating authoritarian aggression abroad, defending freedom requires constant vigilance. As Biden eloquently stated in Normandy, it is now our generation's duty to meet this moment and preserve democracy for the future.
