Jeremiah Bannister = "The Paleocrat"


Thus saith the Lord: Stand ye on the ways, and see and ask for the old paths which is the good way, and walk ye in it: and you shall find refreshment for your souls.


-- Jeremiah 6:16 (Douay-Rheims Version)

Paleo: Greek (palaiós: ancient, old)

-Crat: Latin (-cratia: law, authority)

Jeremiah Bannister is a Catholic journalist & YouTuber, a veteran of the U.S. Navy, and a former TV/radio personality.

Shortly after resigning his position as personal aide to the founder of New Jersey League of American Families lobby group, Jeremiah enrolled at Olivet College (Michigan), where he'd earn his bachelor's degree in Journalism and Mass Communication, with a minor in Political Science. He also received recognition from The Leadership Institute (in Washington D.C.) as one of the nation's top student activists for his role as president of Olivet Young Americans for Freedom, his work as co-host of the Bannister & Sutherby TV show, and for his creation of PaleoRadio, an AM/FM talk show focused on politics, religion, and culture. And by the time he graduated, he'd been awarded the school's top-honor in three different categories: creative writing, public speaking, and political science.

After college, Jeremiah pursued many journalistic endeavors. He served as a contributing editor at The Distributist Review, where he wrote about Catholic Social Teaching. He vetted and published a number of investigative reports exposing unethical behavior within the Battle Creek Police Department, some of which resulted in State Police investigations. And he continued hosting PaleoRadio,  which has now aired on stations in both Michigan and Tennessee. 


As a public speaker, Jeremiah has presented before audiences at Michigan State University, Ferris State University (MI), Make-A-Wish Michigan, Campbellsville University (KY), and elsewhere. He and his work have been covered by Fox 17, WWMT News Channel 3, the Battle Creek Enquirer, Dogma Debate (with David Smalley), the Reasonable Doubts podcast, News Talk 95.3, and many others. 


Jeremiah currently works as Editor-&-Chief of Paleocrat Diaries, updating the site whenever he isn't too busy writing his book, which details his firstborn daughter Sami's life & death with childhood brain cancer... and how God used that tragedy to lead Jeremiah and his family back to the faith. He resides in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with his wife, four kids, and their cats and St. Bernard, Cocoa.
