Got it all sorted. Turns out the bearing wasn't on nearly as tight as the retainer and some light pressure from the press and it came right off. I took some pics of the process for posterity.
#1 - Axle stub out
#2 - Harbor Freight bearing remover on retainer
#3 - In the press to remove the retainer, make sure the are oriented as shown on the plates, if they are the other way they WILL bend!
#4 - Retainer off, still in the separator
#5 - Using some 1/4" steel plate to remove the bearing plate, the stock press plates wouldn't work
