As WND reported, when Bannon left the White House Aug. 18, he immediately returned to his role as executive chairman of Breitbart News and met with the chief funder of Breitbart, Robert Mercer, to prepare to "go to war" against "globalists" in the White House he believes are ruining the Trump administration.

Denouncing Washington Republicans' "total contempt for the forgotten man", their "total contempt for the base", Bannon pointed to Moore's against-all-odds victory as an example of the disconnect between establishment Republicans and their increasingly alienated voter base.

Some of Bannon's candidates for Republican primaries have privately pledged they'll oppose Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

9 sent a message to Republican incumbent senators who are up for re-election in 2018: "We are coming after all of them and we're going to win".

"Corker, McConnell that entire clique of - establishment globalist clique on Capitol Hill have to go", Bannon said. You have to have a sense of urgency.

Mr Bannon has already said he is working to find candidates to challenge Republican incumbent senators in Mississippi, Nebraska, Utah and Wyoming. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) to step down after he slammed President Trump and questioned his ability to lead the country.

"They have total contempt for the base".

Bannon told Hannity that major Republican donors now "are coming to us because they are exhausted of having their money burned up by trying to destroy people like Judge Moore". The base totally rejected him.

"The point I would make as a strategist is you got 10 Democrats up next year in states Trump carried", Mr Gingrich told broadcaster Sean Haannity. And "And look, if Senator Corker is retiring and he doesn't want to be in the U.S. Senate and he doesn't want to support President Trump and doesn't want to support such basic conservative principles, he should just resign", Miller told CNN's "New Day". He carried states Republicans haven't carried in living memory - Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania. "I hate to tell people, you're going to have to work", he added.

Corker also lambasted Trump for treating the office like a reality show, and hit back on Twitter, writing, "It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care center".

Bannon added that "To take your country back it's not just going to happen in any one election". There's no magic wand we can wave and drain the swamp.

But, he affirmed, owing to "the grit, determination and courage of the American working men and women, we're going to win".
