Bannon Didn’t Show Paris Any Love, And He Won’t Show You Any Either

Steve Bannon didn’t show the Paris Climate Accord any love. And, he won’t show you any either.  Men like Bannon are motivated by darkness and wreak havoc everywhere they go.

Steve Bannon was the key supporter behind Trump’s recent self-destructive and odd decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement. (What leader says they want their country to be “first” and “respected” by other countries and then pulls out of an agreement their country negotiated to be “first” to become the laughing stock of the world, disrespected and isolated?)

News reports claim Bannon convinced Trump to pull out with a whiteboard  explaining how Trump needed to keep his campaign promises like building “the wall,” pulling out of the Paris agreement, etc. to position himself with his supporters to win re-election in 2020.

But is winning in 2020 what motivates Bannon? Or watching the world burn, as one media outlet described it? This is a man who said “Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s power.” He stated this right after he declared, “Darkness is good.”  This may be what some conservatives call Christian values, but these are not the type of values you want your man to have.

Bannon is a nihilist bent on destroying the US and the world. If you look at Bannon’s past and his relationships (not to mention his writings), it is clear the man is on a crash and burn mission.

Like Trump, Steve can’t keep a woman. Reportedly, Bannon has had three wives and there have been problems with domestic abuse.  The women in Steve’s life have not fared well.  Police were called over eleven times to Bannon’s Miami home by tenants and an ex-wife asking for help. Many told the press the Coconut Grove home was dysfunctional. Police in California filed domestic charges against Bannon after an ex-wife claimed she had been assaulted. She had gotten pregnant by Steve out of wedlock and Steve told her he would only marry her if the babies she was carrying were normal.  When the amniocentesis test showed the babies would be born without birth defects, Steve rushed over a pre-nuptial agreement for her to sign. Ladies, are these the family values you’re looking for in a partner?

While studies show divorce is harder physically and mentally on men than women, you have to wonder what came first: Bannon’s dark mental state or problems with relationships? Are they intertwined? Bannon’s dark political views and fascination with destruction are mirrored by his failed relationships. Between Steve’s darkness and Donald’s insecurities, you have to fear for the health and safety of the women in their lives and the world.


Should You Get An IUD Or Another Long-Acting Birth Control Method Before Trump Takes Office?

A lot of social media sites are urging women to get an IUD, which can cost upwards of $800 without insurance, or another long-acting method like contraceptive implants, before Trump takes office in January. Birth control is free under Obamacare (a.k.a. the Affordable Care Act – ACA) and does not require a co-payment. But, during his campaign, Trump promised to get rid of Obamacare. Now, several weeks before he takes office, Trump is beginning to say he may keep some of the more “popular” provisions of Obamacare (and what… call it “Trumpcare” or something…?)

It’s not an understatement to say women are straight up scared.  Gynecologists, Planned Parenthood and other health clinics around the country report a massive increase in calls, emails, and texts asking for birth control – especially the long-acting, reversible kind, before Trumpism spreads across our land. Women want birth control that can outlast a Trump presidency.(SuzyKnew! has to stop here and say: What a shameful way to start a presidency by making so many Americans terrified!)

Others, such as the NY Times, say not to worry. Trump can’t reverse everything the first day he walks into office. They say it will take months – maybe years – to unravel everything. Selecting a contraceptive method – especially a long-term one – shouldn’t be done hastily, and an IUD, depending on the type, can last from 3 – 10 years.

Just over 11% of U.S. women using birth control chose IUDs. But, the highly-effective method is becoming more popular – and affordable with ACA. However, there can be side effects when you go from one type of birth control like the pill, the most popular method among U.S. women, to another method like the IUD, implant or injectable. Different contraceptive methods affect your body and menses differently. Of course, you could have your IUD removed if things weren’t working for you. But, do some “googling” and know what to expect before making a change to an IUD or implant, and of course check in with your healthcare provider.


It is clear the most vulnerable part of the ACA is the requirement that health insurers cover contraception for all women without a co-payment. Kaiser Family Foundation claims before Obamacare, 28 states covered contraception and 85% of employer plans covered contraception.

But, what about co-payments? And, 28 out of 50 states isn’t that great of a ratio. Plus, the devil is in the details

And, ladies, ladies, ladies…

Do you trust this man not do something crazy?  And fast? It took him just over a week after becoming president-elect to appoint alt-right, white nationalist Steve Bannon as his chief strategist and select Jeff Sessions as his nominee for Attorney General. Just sayin’…

SuzyKnew! just wants to make sure you have the info. It’s up to  to you to decide what to do next.

Your thoughts, ladies…?
