After his exit as Chief White House Strategist, Steve Bannon returned as the executive chairman for Breitbart News Friday, a spokesman for the site confirmed to NBC News. Confirmation from the company came shortly after the site published an article titled "'Populist Hero' Stephen K. Bannon Returns Home to Breitbart."

"Now I'm free. I've got my hands back on my weapons. Someone said, 'it’s Bannon the Barbarian.' I am definitely going to crush the opposition," Bannon said.

Mayor Mike Signer of Charlottesville, Virginia, said in a statement that he wants Gov. Terry McAuliffe to convene an emergency meeting of the General Assembly to greenlight the removal of the Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee monument from a city park. In addition, he also asked for city leaders to figure out ways to memorialize Heather Heyer, the 32-year-old counter-protester who was killed in a car-ramming at Saturday's rally, NBC News reported.
The City Council in February narrowly passed a measure to move the Lee statue — triggering a lawsuit and leading a judge to impose a six-month injunction in May to prevent its relocation while the case winds through the courts.
He said he is also calling for the General Assembly to enact legislation that would allow cities and towns to ban the open or concealed carry of weapons during public events where there is a potential security threat.
Meanwhile, other cities and states are weighing whether to scrub Confederate symbols from public spaces — seen by some as outdated tributes that only reopen the nation's painful past.

A family heading to Cape May, New Jersey, found themselves in an improbable situation earlier this month when a drawbridge lifted right underneath their car and they were forced to jump the opening.
Terence Naphys, after paying the $1.50 toll at the Middle Thorofare Bridge that connects The Wildwoods and Cape May via Ocean Drive, was heading across the bridge when a steel metal grate suddenly lifted 3 to 6 feet underneath his car, Naphys told Lower Township police.
Naphys was in the car with his wife, his daughter and his daughter's friend, and he was worried his Toyota RAV4 would fall the 65 feet down into the water. So he accelerated and jumped the gap.

President Donald Trump faced more fallout Friday over his response to the violence in Charlottesville with virtually all of the members of a presidential committee on the arts announced their resignations, in a new blow for the president after two business advisory councils earlier this week were disbanded as members left in protest.
A letter dated Friday, signed by 16 of 17 members of the President's Committee On the Arts and Humanities, cited the "false equivalence" of Trump's comments about Charlottesville.

President Donald Trump has approved a long-delayed Pentagon plan to create an independent and more aggressive cyber command in order to beef up cyberwar operations against the Islamic State group and other foes.
The White House announcement Friday means U.S. Cyber Command may eventually be split off from the intelligence-focused National Security Agency.
For now, Trump has agreed to raise the stature of Cyber Command within the military and give it more autonomy. He did not say who would serve as commander of the organization.
Violent police encounters in California last year led to the deaths of 157 people and six officers, the state attorney general's office said Thursday in a report that provides the first statewide tally on police use-of-force incidents.
All of the state's 800 police departments supplied detailed data from 2016, including demographic information on the civilians and officers, the type of call that led to the violence and the officers' justification for using force.
The departments reported 782 incidents resulting in serious injury or death, or where a firearm was discharged. Those cases involved 832 civilians and about 19 percent, or 157, of those people were killed.
Forty-two percent of civilians who were involved in the incidents were Hispanic, 30 percent white and 20 percent black. More than 50 percent of the officers involved were white, according to the report.
