In a story that is getting more surreal by the minute, a post on 4Chan now claims that the infamous "golden showers" scene in the unverified 35-page dossier, allegedly compiled by a British intelligence officer, was a hoax and fabricated by a member of the chatboard as "fanfiction", then sent to Rick Wilson, who proceeded to send it to the CIA, which then put it in their official classified intelligence report on the election. Here is 4Chan´s explanation of how the story came to light: >/pol/acks mailed fanfiction to anti-trump pundit Rick Wilson about trump making people p*** on a bed obama
Comments: Fake as it gets. It´s completely fallen apart now. Buzzfeed looks idiotic.
Is it even possible the CIA could be this inept? This is the gang responsible for intelligence that protects the entire country. We are in trouble.
It is not like they were conned by a sophisticated scheme pulled off by an ingenious foreign enemy. It is not like they passed on an unverifiable report on Joe the plumber. They failed to check on a baseless disgusting hit piece on the president the most powerful man on earth.
Our intelligence nissed the fall of the Soviet Union, found nonn existent WMDs in Iraq, missed NK nuclear run up, missed Iran´s nuke run up. Thet gatnled the Russia/Ukraine problem. Do any of you people find Clapper, and the others, competent? I don´t.
It is extremely interesting that Rick Wilson´s name came up. I do remember him being really active in destroying Trump. He supported the pathetic McMullin. The link below contains an interview where Wilson states the following:
"While Wilson says there’s almost “never a silver bullet in oppo,” he believes what’s coming out on Trump is as close as you get."
FTA: “There are a couple of things out there on Trump that I think would end the race and I don’t have access to all of them but I am one of these people that spends my life on the phone talking to people and talking to oppo guys and talking to researchers” he said. “And there are some things out there that I think would cause even his most passionate supporters to go, ‘Whoa, wait a minute.´”
It is absolutely stunning how people in your own party would behave so horrifically. I too believe McCain has dirty hands in this fiasco.
That our trusty CIA swallowed this load of BS lock stock and barrel means the head man should be dismissed immediately without pension. Many others to follow. This informs us of how trustworthy their intelligence is...a fitting exclamation point on Hussein´s Legacy.
This is an "epic troll" by the gamers at 4Chan (home of Pepe the Frog), and was discussed at length on their political boards in October, 2016. It was intended as a troll on Rick Wilson, the loudmouthed neverTrumper. The 4Channers scored bonus points in the game when Wilson swallowed the bait, and then turned the "report" over to an equally gullible Sen. John McCain, who in turn passed it on to the wizards in Obama´s CIA.

Rick Wilson´s Trump hatred is something to behold. Now he´s out there denying he´s involved....even though he (effectively)served as McMullins campaign manager...McMullin is ex CIA. Just a coinky dink, I´m sure!
Since at least a year ago, Wilson has been referring to "The Thing" that will bring Trump down. Wilson has repeatedly pleaded for people to release details of "The Thing." One would hope this behavior would make him radioactive, but Steve Schmidt and Nicole Wallace still have gigs, so who knows?
While this entire incident is laughable, and even more so if the 4Chan account is accurate, what makes it quite tragic, is that it is no longer possible to dismiss the "fake news" angle to an intelligence report. And if the CIA is compromised, what is left for "news outlets" like CNN and BuzzFeed, which were all too eager to run with the story without any attempt at verification?
Well, Fight Club character Tyler, a couple things are left and not just for "news outlets" like Buzzfeed and CNN.
1. Michael Goodwin at the NY Post can keep his job performing Howie Kurtz acts of explaining the ridiculously obvious to us flyover morons, because there´s just no way we could figure it out by having read all your ZH stuff before it hit Drudge.
2. 4Chan´s, CNN´s and Buzzfeed´s credibility will go stratospheric to most members of Congress, college and Millennial snowflakes, and most of the MSM as well as the Marxists embedded in all US Intel services. We flyover, grits eating doofus heads will still be able to click over to ZH to find out Buzzfeed, 4Chan, CNN are actually still fake LONG before the NY Post´s Goodwins can phone in the obvious.
3. It will be a blast to watch Trump and company totally and completely eviscerate CNN, Buzzfeed, 4Chan, US Intel, the McQueegs in Congress, and the clueless press.
4. It will be fun to watch the never ending and now public for all to watch, Atomic Situps that CNN, 4Chan, Buzzfeed, the McQueegs in Congress and the clueless press will never fail to perform publicly from now on, each trying to out-do the other with bigger and nastier smelling brown glops on their collective noses.
Iraq might descend into “chaotic violence”—or worse. The broader Middle East could “go to hell” all over again. If the United States doesn’t step up under President Donald Trump, Paul Wolfowitz warns in a new interview for The Global POLITICO, our weekly podcast on world affairs in the Trump era, it would represent an “opportunity” blown, a missed chance that would result in “lost American influence” and a win for “hostile actors.” Wolfowitz, a hawkish Republican known as the architect of the Iraq war for his role in advocating President George W. Bush´s 2003 invasion, rarely wades back into the public
It is said that the rich man thinks only about money. But, in truth it is the poor man who can think of nothing else. In “Asia’s (most expensive) world city”, you would be surprised who considers themselves to be poor. You can’t measure or hide behind anecdotal evidence showing the deteriorating quality of Hong Kong’s basket of economic goods that constitute quality of life. A locally based senior executive at an international asset manager, frustrated at paying HK$68,000 a month for a flat in Aberdeen for his wife and two kids, decided to move to the suburbs of Taipei where
President Trump has trumped his enemies in the White House Correspondents Association. Not only did he decline to walk into their trap at the annual dinner, where he would have been roasted continuously by (as Twtichy reminds us) “’Daily Show’ comedian Hasan Minhaj (who has referred to Trump as ‘white ISIS’”) and…well…everyone. He yesterday announced counterprogramming that will force many of the presumptive attendees to miss the event”
A review of Donald Trump´s business career would lead one to say that he has always over-promised and under-delivered. Whether his long list of bankruptcies in the ever-profitable casino business, the failures of his "university,´ steak, vodka or clothing lines, there has been a history of putting himself first, while ignoring the needs of his constituents. We may be seeing that play out in his approach to government, as well. As in business, Trump has a constituency of one … himself … just ask his stock and bond investors, his suppliers, contractors, laborers, or even his customers. Unlike Trump, they rarely,
The United States has announced that a secret military ground operation killed an Islamic State operative seen as a close associate of leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and linked to an attack on a Turkish nightclub that left 39 people dead. Abdurakhmon Uzbeki, who was believed to be from Uzbekistan, was killed during the ground assault near Mayadin, Syria, on 6 April, said Colonel John Thomas, a spokesman for the US military’s central command. “It was a ground operation. I think that’s all we’re willing to say about that,” Thomas said, declining further comment. He specified that Uzbeki did not die in
Syrian parents are naming their children after the Russian President as a sign of gratitude, while millions of students, including Bashar Assad’s own children, are learning Russian, Syria’s Ambassador to Moscow Riad Haddad said. “Thanks to the efforts of the Moscow embassy, and with the approval of President Assad, Russian is the second language taught in Syrian schools. We have opened Russian faculties in all of the country’s universities, while children receive tuition from the seventh grade,” said the official, addressing Russia’s upper chamber of parliament, the Federation Council, in Moscow. Russian was first put on the curriculum in government-controlled schools in
A team of inspectors from China’s environmental protection agency was held against their will for over an hour while they were carrying out pollution checks at a factory. The case reflects the difficulties inspectors face as they attempt to tackle the nation’s chronic air pollution. The inspectors were carrying out checks at Lujie Energy-saving Technology Co in Jinan in Shandong province, the ministry said in a statement. The team found the factory was still using a coal-powered boiler that should have been demolished as well as other problems in tackling emissions. The factory owner became angry, refused to supply documents and locked the factory
President Barack Obama considered being homosexual as a young man, according to a forthcoming biography of the president. The biography by David Garrow, “Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama,” is set to come out on May 9. Garrow wrote a Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of Martin Luther King Jr., and is a regular contributor to The New York Times and The Washington Post. WATCH: (Video) In a chapter about the former president’s two years at Occidental College, Garrow reveals a close relationship Obama had with an openly gay assistant professor named Lawrence Goldyn. “Goldyn made a huge impact on Barry
SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit over the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court. The Republican president’s administration and two California governments that sued over the order disagreed about its scope. San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding. But an attorney for the Justice Department,
It was a message repeated several times at a Democrat news conference Tuesday afternoon: Republicans, agree with us on a spending bill, or we’ll blame you for shutting down the government. And it appears that Republicans, who control all three branches of government, are listening: “Now last night, we received a bit of good news -- not just for Democrats but for the country – that the president is easing off his demands for a border wall in the government funding bill,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told the news conference. “The money is better used elsewhere,” Schumer said. “If the
The “Antifa” far left Communist group has managed to get an entire parade and carnival canceled in Portland because the Multnomah County Republicans were going to be in the parade. (Photo) The communists threatened to riot, loot, assault people at the parade. The festival people decided to cancel the entire weekend of activities, which was going to be this weekend due to the threats of violence by the leftist group. The Antifa group promised to rush the parade and drag away the Republicans. “We will have two hundred or more people rush into the parade into the middle and drag
A vicious brawl, involving more than 50 teenage boys and girls, erupted at a Florida mall. The disturbing video of the fight was shared on social media, featuring a large group of teens pummeling each other outside a Rue 21 clothing store inside Orange Park Mall. The Clay County Sheriff´s Office said the incident happened Saturday. In the footage, several people are seen punching a girl on a couch. Behind them another group is seen fighting as a woman appears to try and calm things down. A third and fourth group of teens are also seen fighting in the background.
A group of executives who want to fight global warming has published a new report calling for countries to spend up to $600 billion a year over the next two decades to boost green energy deployment and energy efficiency equipment. [SNIP] To meet that goal ETC claims the world needs “investment in renewables and other low-carbon technologies some $6 trillion higher ($300 billion per year); while the largest required increases – of almost $9 trillion ($450 billion per year) – will be in more efficient energy saving equipment and buildings.” That’s a $15 trillion price tag to theoretically limit future
