Steve Bannon, a former White House strategist and Breitbart editor, was finally kicked out of an Italian monastery, which even Newsweek wittily described as a "far-right boot camp".

This author, along with a few others, has been warning for some time that the former Trump's top advisor had crossed all lines, and began directly interfering in the internal affairs of the European Union, by promoting and amalgamizing dangerous extreme right-wing alliances of all natures; political, philosophical and religious. The monastery was supposed to offer "classes", which Bannon described as "the kind of underpinnings of the Judeo-Christian West".

Tactics? "A modern gladiator school", according to Steve Bannon's own assessment.

Journal NEO (New Easter Outlook) has already published one essay in 2019, analyzing Bannon's activities in Italy and beyond: "Steve Bannon a Profile of a US Apparatchik. From China to the Pope". There, it was argued:

"Steve Bannon is a talented propagandist and promoter of Western supremacy and imperialist "culture". He is extremely dangerous, mainly because he knows precisely what he is doing and what he wants to achieve: total control over the world."

Last year, it was hard to imagine that Italy would dare to rock the boat, disturbing the activities of one of the most powerful and canny neo-cons in the world.

But the unimaginable suddenly took place.

Reported by Newsweek's Rosie McCall:

"The Italian culture ministry has announced it evicted what has been described as a far-right political bootcamp from a thirteenth-century monastery, AFP reports. The bootcamp has ties to Steve Bannon, a former adviser to President Donald Trump, through its Dignitatis Humanae Institute (DHI), which Bannon funds.

According to AFP, the bootcamp which had been established to train students to "defend the West"had been given a 19 year lease on Trisulti Charterhouse in the Province of Frosinone, central Italy, in February 2018. However, the ministry said on Thursday that the group had falsely tendered for the lease, and thus they were evicted. This follows reports from May that the ministry was intending to revoke the lease due to "violations of various contractual obligations," according to The Telegraph.

This will come as a blow to Benjamin Harnwell, a British conservative and the director of DHI, who had hoped to launch the first three-week course to a small group of students this year and was in the process of securing planning permission to revamp the venue. Harnwell is an associate of Bannon, who had reportedly promised to give $1 million to the project."

Of course, the "boot camp" has been evicted on technicalities, not on ideological bases.

My contacts inside the ruling 5-Star-Movement (Movimento 5 Stelle) are hushed and cautious on the topic. Usually outspoken, they are reluctant to go on the record. I am only receiving bits and pieces of news. But what I get is telling. This are big, and extremely dangerous issues. Mr. Bannon has not been on Donald Trump's team, for quite some time, but only few have any doubts that he is still working on behalf of the President's neo-con crew.
