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.
Makes Schumer and his intelligence pals and the lefties who hate Trump and McPain and Miss Lindsay and CNN all look like foolish little liars, doesn´t it?
Why do we tolerate so many liars in America now?
Is there no punishment for liars?

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.
We see California history as charged with myth and hope and tragedy because of Kevin Starr. The history of the Golden State is inextricable from its greatest chronicler, the fourth-generation Californian who spent decades completing a multi-volume history that is widely considered to be the definitive account of the California story. Starr, a professor of history at the University of Southern California and former California State Librarian, died of a heart attack in San Francisco on Saturday, leaving behind an indelible mark on his native state. He was 76. Starr published more than a dozen books during his lifetime including
Activists who oppose President-elect Donald Trump were caught on camera in an undercover video discussing ways to disrupt a gala celebrating his inauguration, including the use of butyric acid, better known as stink bombs. An edited video, shot by James O´Keefe´s Project Veritas, a conservative group known for conducting sting operations on liberals, that was released Monday shows three members of the D.C. Anti-Fascist Coalition brainstorming ways to shut down the inauguration eve DeploraBall in Washington, D.C. ´Yeah, if you had a pint of butyric acid, I don´t care how big the building is, it´s closing,´ an anti-Trump activist, identified as Luke
I once watched Kevin Starr address a gathering of civic leaders in Modesto. This was some 20 years back, and I can’t recall much of the speech. But what I can remember, vividly, is how enthusiastic Starr seemed to be, presenting his thoughts on California before a small audience on a weeknight in a small city in the middle of the San Joaquin Valley. He had written his remarks in longhand and they ran for several pages. He didn’t skip a page. The historian’s enthusiasm for his lifelong topic — his native state of California — knew no boundaries and resonated,
NUEVO LAREDO, Mexico – The more than 50 Cuban migrants stranded in Nuevo Laredo, on the US-Mexico border, hope that President-elect Donald Trump, who takes office on Jan. 20, will resolve the conflict sparked by the cancellation late last week of the so-called “wet foot, dry foot” policy. One of those affected by the unexpected decision by outgoing President Barack Obama, who on Thursday eliminated that long-standing immigration policy, is Roimer Delgado, 47, who says that he and his fellow migrants are hoping for a solution. “We’re waiting to see what Trump decides to do with us. The only thing
The Jan. 20 Mass Protest along the Presidential Inaugural Route will be a powerful rejection of the Trump Agenda on Day One of his administration. Permits have been secured for the large Navy Memorial site on Pennsylvania Ave. NW from 7th St. to 9th St. A 28-foot stage and a huge sound system will be set up there so that Trump, his big donors, the international media and indeed the whole world will see our presence. This will be a protest unlike any other, and the Navy Memorial site will be the largest of all the protests on Jan. 20. The
WASHINGTON – Part of President Barack Obama’s motivation in ending a practice that gave undocumented Cuban migrants who reached US soil the right to remain appears to have been a desire to discourage Donald Trump from reversing the process of normalization with Cuba. Trump, who takes office Jan. 20, “will notice that the steps we’ve taken (with Cuba) make sense, they are serving our interests,” Obama adviser Mark Feierstein said Friday in an interview with EFE. Feierstein, the National Security Council director for Latin America, said he was confident that the Trump administration would maintain the “great majority” of the
In his last visit to Ukraine as U.S. vice president, Joe Biden met on Monday with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, who heaped lavish praise on “dear Joe.” In the U.S., Biden is often portrayed in memes depicting the various impractical pranks he’d like to play on Donald Trump. Given the silliness of these jokes, it usually surprises Americans to learn that Biden has been Obama’s point man in Ukraine, where the vice president has played the role of the White House’s enforcer. In his December 2015 address to Ukrainian parliament, Biden warned deputies that corruption
Women all across America are planning to festoon themselves with knitted, pink “pussy power hats” during a march on Washington, D.C. — and other cities — scheduled for January 21, the day after Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration. The organizers of the Pussyhat Project hope to make “a powerful visual statement” at the Women’s March on Washington by having a large number of women show up wearing the hats. The “pussy power hats,” which feature perky cat-like ears, are a cinch to make, organizers say. “Knitters, crocheters and sewers of all levels” can make the hats at home — preferably with neon pink
A growing number of Democrat lawmakers are boycotting Donald Trump´s inauguration this week, in the wake of his remarks about civil rights campaigner-turned-Representative John Lewis over MLK weekend. There are now 17 Democratic Representatives saying they will spurn Trump´s swearing-in in favor of focusing on their constituents or even taking part in protests and ´resistance´ movements. The uptick in furious members of Congress comes after Trump derided Lewis on Twitter Saturday, saying the lawmaker - who once campaigned alongside Martin Luther King Jr - was ´all talk, no action´. Trump´s criticism came after Lewis´s Friday promise not to attend the
They are some of the biggest names in the Republican national security firmament, veterans of past GOP administrations who say, if called upon by President-elect Donald Trump, they stand ready to serve their country again. But their phones aren’t ringing. Their entreaties to Trump Tower in New York have mostly gone unanswered. In Trump world, these establishment all-stars say they are “PNG” — personae non gratae. Their transgression was signing one or both of two public “Never Trump” letters during the campaign, declaring they would not vote for Trump and calling his candidacy a danger to the nation. One letter,
The biggest news story of the day, apparently, is the dustup between Rep. John Lewis and Donald Trump, about which I wrote this morning. Although the story has little real significance, the Associated Press, the most influential news source in the U.S., spins it furiously to drive its anti-Trump narrative. Start with the headline: “Trump unleashes Twitter attack against civil rights legend.” Most people only read headlines, and this one gives no clue that it was Lewis, not Trump, who started the fight by saying on Meet the Press that Trump will be an illegitimate president. And Lewis is identified
Mr. Garfinkle of Garfinkle’s New Method Hebrew School in Milwaukee used to frequently echo King Solomon’s admonition; “There’s nothing new under the sun.” I was reminded of that this week when the rapidly unfolding “scandal” of Trump’s purported dealings with Russia hit the news. It has more than a few similarities with the Dan Rather faked-up story of GW Bush’s National Guard service where an anonymous, never-found source supposedly gave Bill Burkett a demonstrably fake report and Dan Rather ran with it. This time a Bush (Jeb) is involved but as an instigator of the story, not a victim. John
A growing group of Democratic lawmakers will boycott President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration Friday as a protest of Trump’s worldview and his criticism of civil rights icon John Lewis, congressman of Georgia. There are now more than 30 House Democrats — 31, at last count — who have declared that they will not attend the inauguration on Capitol Hill this week. The number rose sharply after Trump tweeted Saturday that Lewis is “all talk, talk, talk” and should “finally focus on the burning and crime infested inner-cities.” Lewis, who sees Trump’s Nov. 8 win as illegitimate because of Russia’s alleged interference
Protestors are promising to disrupt many of the events surrounding Donald Trump´s inauguration, with some protest leaders promising violence. No venue will be safe from protestors, including the inaugural parade, inaugural balls, and every place in betweeen. Daily Caller: On the day of President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration protesters are planning an anti-capitalist march, road blockades and disruptions to inauguration balls. The protests will likely include property destruction, a source with intimate knowledge of the protest plans told The Daily Caller Friday. The blockades are not limited to roads but will also be at every security checkpoint, the source said. The source added that the
