The Kushner-Bannon feud is about ideology - and Steve Bannon is losing

According to numerous reports in the American media, the rival aides lead two opposing camps in the White House; Bannon, along with chief of staff Reince Preibus and aide Stephen Miller head the "nationalist camp" - pushing the Muslim travel ban, the failed healthcare bill and so on - and Kushner who along with his wife Ivanka Trump, and chief economic adviser Gary Cohn lead the more "liberal", NY camp, advocating moderation.

People's Pundit Daily has confirmed the report.

An administration official played down Bannon's removal, saying he was only on the council to "babysit" Flynn.

Other candidates include the businessman and former lobbyist Wayne Berman, the political consultant David Urban, and Trump's economic adviser and former Goldman Sachs President Gary Cohn, according to staffers who spoke with Axios.

He has pleaded guilty to insider trading charges and is likely to receive leniency at sentencing as a result of his testimony. Asked what evidence led to the guilty verdict, one juror replied, "Everything that was in front of us".

Outlets have been reporting since the inauguration that an internal turf war has been raging between nationalists led by Stephen Bannon and globalist leaning moderates led by Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. While it's true that Mr. Priebus was considered more establishment as the former chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), he was a Trump loyalist during the campaign.

He's begun asking those outside the administration - including wealthy friends and longtime confidantes - whether they approve of the makeup of his staff. Bannon just suffered the indignity of a high-profile demotion and appears to be losing power to Jared Kushner while Priebus's name has been floated as a potential early exit since practically day one. If there's a story out there today like the one below hinting that Priebus and Bannon might be headed for the exit, it stands to reason that it came from Team Jared.

In this case, Kushner has apparently already begun the process of amending the official documents to be more accurate. According to the Daily Beast, the term "cuck" is short for "cucksertive", which is a portmanteau of "cuckold" and "conservative". He embraced the views and the ideology of Steve Bannon. If that were the case, The Times reports that would constitute a felony and the punishment could be up to five years in prison or fines.

The persons who reported Kushner's omissions to the New York Times have direct knowledge of the questionnaire and chose to remain anonymous since the document is confidential.
