Identity Of "Former Intelligence
Officer" Who Prepared The Trump
Dossier, Has Been Revealed

Zero Hedge, by Tyler Durden

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/11/2017 2:53:59 PM

While we learned earlier that John McCain was responsible for handing over the 35-page "dossier" of compromising, if arguably fake, revelations about Trump´s connections to Russia over to the FBI, the identity of the actual creator, who was said to be an ex-British intelligence service, remained a mystery. No longer. Courtesy of the WSJ, we now know his name: the former MI-6 officer, now working for a private security-and-investigations firm "who produced the dossier of unverified allegations about President-elect Donald Trump’s activities and connections in Russia" is Christopher Steele, a director of London-based Orbis Business Intelligence.... and before readers google

Comments:
I´m sure Trump will be going after that hack. He and Buzzfeed should be sued and bankrupted like Gawker. They have to be taught a real lesson that publishing lies and defamatory information is not acceptable! They are destroying our nation.

Now that we know who the ´Former Intelligence Officer´ is - the question remains.

Who paid him to falsify the Trump Dossier?

Precisely, poster #1. Who paid him. (Or who paid his company.) I have a feeling we´ll find out. The article notes that a neighbor said Steele would be "away for a few days." I wonder if we´ll ever see him again.

Also--hmmm, now we know where he got the idea for the perversion he ascribed to DT.

Since Caroline will be coming home from Japan before January 20, the Ambassadorship in Japan will be empty. Perfect transition out of the Senate for the Rino McCain. Caroline went to Japan and was never heard from again. Probably studying her Japanese. It would be nice for McCain to go away and never be heard from again. And an ambassadorship for Lindsey Graham would be nice. How about New Zealand?

With respect #10, no. I like Japan, and I like the Japanese. Besides there is a lot that´s happening in that part of the world, and we know for darn sure there´s going to be a lot happening in the next four to eight years there. Let´s not send McCain there to screw it up.

On the other hand, your concept is sound. How about Togo? Fiji? I´d suggest the Falklands, but we´re trying to repair things with Great Britain.

The Ross ice shelf? Make him (with apologies to Larry Niven) "Speaker-to-Penguins."

I think that McCain´s new job should be ambassador to Vietnam. It´s a perfect fit - he´s very well acquainted with the county.

Places like Fiji, New Zealand, etc are far to nice for a slime bucket like him.

I would like to see Trump give McCain a job in the administration, anything to get him out of the senate. Then, fire him and put him out to pasture. He is way past his expiration date. After this I can´t help but wonder...we all know how mean and vindictive McCain can be, but this really goes beyond that. Is he getting senile? Has the melanoma come back and is affecting his brain? He´s really crossed a line, this time.

McCain has been a screw up all his life.
Because his father and grandfather were true American heroes his record was white washed over and over.
Any other person who careless crashed four planes would have been grounded let know left flying until he almost sunk the carrier.
his first combat flight ended with his war prisoner episode.
He then became a collaborator for special status and to keep him out of facing the prisoners lead officers.
So is there any surprise?
He once again he proves he is no hero.
he doesn´t care if his country is betrayed
What does the Dems have on him?
A family member was on the carrier and said McCain would not correct his sloppy habits entering the cockpit . our brother barely was one of the lucky survivors.

Bad more on Tinfoil´s part. The UK and the US want to have a strong alliance. They too have years of screw-ball politics to repair in a very dangerous world. They need good friends. IOW Tinfoil had better start watching his back and get packing because he will soon have a talk with someone he knows that suggests he go on a long trip to no where.

Sorry, McCain´s plane was next to the plane which was struck by a rocket from a plane on the other side of the flight deck. There is a documentary on one of the cable channels which explains the whole incident and why the rocket launched unexpectedly. I don´t like McClain, but facts are important.

About the dossier:

It was commissioned by a Washington firm on behalf of Mr. Trump´s opponents.

Specifically: First by the RNC Never Trumpers, and then by the DNC.

Having read the dossier, it´s apparent it´s about as real as Barak Obama´s Birth Certificate. Read and decide for yourself.

As I see it, the real problem is: Who leaked the dossier to CNN? It has been said that copies were hand carried by ´Officials´ to CNN.

Too, many journalists have openly stated they have either heard, or seen the dossier months ago.

Specifically, last nights news segment on FOX NEWS. Juan Williams and Dana Perino. The NY Times and Mother Jones were approached months ago (prior to the election), but refused to publish, as the dossier could not be verified.

Senator Chuck Schumer stated on a news show that ´Intelligence agencies are angry with Mr. Trump, and that he could face some form of retaliation.´ Watch it on Youtube.

This morning, we learn the alleged author of the dossier has never been contacted by US Intelligence authorities. That the author fears for his life, and those of his ´contacts.´

Watched a bit of ITV This Morning - they are giddy that there is a British angle with the ex-MI6 officer, despite the fact that the officer was hoodwinked and passed on a complete hoax.

The non-story allows the media here and there to trot out their shopworn phrase of ´raises questions about.....´ Trump, Trump´s presidency, etc.

In reality this is an establishment STILL trying to overturn the election through dirty tricks that we, unwillingly, are funding handsomely.

Everyone knew this wasn´t true including McCain but it will now always be associated with Trump for all eternity even though completely false.

It doesn´t get much weirder than a bogus made-up story by 4Chan about the Russia micturition episode (thanks to The Big Lebowski for teaching me that word).

Yet, as others noted yesterday, a portion of this "dossier" that purports to be written by a Brit is full of Americanisms, American constructions, and outright solecisms from a British point of view, especially the garbled reference to World Cup Soccer. Did one of the SWJ´s in the intelligence agencies cobble together the 4-Chan hoax and a piece of outright trashy #neverTrump libel concocted for the primaries by an oppo "consultant"? Sure looks that way.

Either way, it reveals exactly the sort of second-rate vermin infesting national politics. Trump would be well advised to clean out not only all the Clinton through Obama appointees, but also all the SWJ moles now infesting our intelligence agencies.

McCain is a disgrace to the uniform he wore when he crashed so many perfectly good airplanes. His conduct while supposedly a "prisoner" has always been in question, and he is certainly not a conservative senator.

He and Lindsey are part of the polution in "the swamp" that needs to be drained.

When McCain ran for President the first time, people rejected him for being a loose cannon. I remember ex-military officers saying this. I can also remember seeing McCain get agitated and rock up and down on the balls of his feet. It reminded me of Captain Queeg. At the time I chalked it up to a sort of PTSD. This episode is over Trump´s statements about McCain´s hero status. You can bet on it. The cannon has fired.

Fellow refugees say at least 140 Somalis have been settled in the United States after being blocked for days by President Donald Trump´s ban on travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries. The refugees spoke on condition of anonymity because of concerns about their safety. They remain at the world´s largest refugee camp, Dadaab, which hosts more than 200,000 Somalis. The group of 140 which had been vetted by U.S. authorities had been on the brink of traveling to the United States, but Trump´s ban left them in limbo at a transit camp in Kenya´s capital, Nairobi.

California Democrats made a surprise move late Friday to foil President Trump’s promise to repeal ObamaCare—by introducing a stand-alone, single-payer healthcare system in California. The Mercury News reported that two California lawmakers Friday introduced legislation to replace private insurance with a government-run health care system covering all 38 million Californians—including its undocumented residents. “We’ve reached this pivotal moment,” Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens), told the Mercury News in an interview Friday, “and I thought to myself: `Look, now more than ever is the time to talk about universal health care.’” The article went on to report that the proposal dubbed the ‘Healthy California

Senator John McCain has emerged as one of the leading Republican voices pushing back against President Trump, and he had some tough words in response to Trump’s tweet calling the media the “enemy” of the American people. In a preview of his Meet the Press interview tomorrow, McCain told Chuck Todd that the free press is very important to American democracy. “I hate the press. I hate you especially,” he joked. “But the fact is, we need you. We need a free press.” Without a free and adversarial press, McCain said, Americans would lose their liberties and “that’s how dictators

SAN FRANCISCO — Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook will move beyond connecting family and friends to building "social infrastructure" critical to bringing people together in a "global community." In a nearly 5,800-word letter to Facebook users published on his Facebook page, Zuckerberg laid out his vision of what kind of world he believes Facebook can help create as it pushes back against a growing tide of anti-globalization sentiment. "Progress now requires humanity coming together not just as cities or nations, but also as a global community," Zuckerberg wrote.

Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, the firebrand Islamist cleric behind the first attempt to bring down the World Trade Center, has died in federal prison. He was 78. Abdel-Rahman, an Egyptian radical who maintained a global following even while imprisoned for more than two decades, died Saturday at Butner Federal Medical Center in North Carolina, where he was serving a life sentence, Reuters reported. Abdel-Rahman was convicted in 1995 of plotting terror attacks throughout New York City, including the World Trade Center and the United Nations. His son Ammar told Reuters that his family had received a phone call from a U.S. representative

Survey: Historians rank
Obama 12th best president
Politico, by Cristiano Lima    Original Article

Historians have ranked Barack Obama the 12th best president of all time, the highest rated since President Ronald Reagan, in a new C-SPAN survey released Friday. Less than a month after exiting the White House, Obama received high marks from presidential historians for his pursuit of "equal justice for all" and for his commanding "moral authority," ranking third and seventh among all former presidents in each respective category. The 44th president also cracked a top 10 ranking for his "economic management" and public persuasion. The former president´s tenure earned its lowest marks for the relationship between the presidency and Congress,

This weekend in Atlanta, theatergoers can see not only Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monologues but also The MANologues, a new performance about “toxic masculinity.” “The MANologues will explore themes such as masculinity, white male privilege, everyday sexism, war, patriarchy, socialization to gender and race, intersectionality, bystander intervention, allyship, PTSD, porn addiction, mansplaining, police brutality, and more,” according to Atlanta’s Creative Loafing. HuMAN UP, an “intersectional feminist” organization focused on gender-based violence and men, is producing the performance along with the Atlanta chapter of One Billion Rising, which was founded by the Vagina Monologues author. Once hailed as a feminist masterpiece, the

A Yale student group has waged a war on the university fraternities and will use Title IX to force them into admitting women—while letting female-only sororities off the hook. Engender, a group led by students of Yale, claims it will lobby the university—citing Title IX, which prohibits discrimination based on gender, and internal Yale policies against discrimination—to issue sanctions against male-only fraternities. Will McGrew, a co-director of the organization, told Yale News that it’s a “logical next step” to approach the Yale administration “because all of these organizations fall under the purview of Yale legally, either because they are registered

Meeting this week at the annual “World Government Summit” in the United Arab Emirates, under the shadow of a replica monument from the false god Baal´s temple, top globalists and establishment leaders from around the planet offered a series of stunning revelations about their agenda. From the socialist new UN secretary-general and the embattled boss of the International Monetary Fund to national government leaders and tax-funded crony capitalists, over a hundred prominent speakers lectured thousands of attendees on the supposed necessity of globalism, multiculturalism, statism, Big Government, social engineering, “sustainability,” and more. One speaker, tax-funded billionaire Elon Musk, even claimed

Democratic Party activists who tried unsuccessfully to sink Hillary Clinton’s nomination at last year’s convention are at it again, pestering national party members ahead of next week’s vote on a new chairman. (Snip) They say the phone calls to lobby for Rep. Keith Ellison, the choice of progressives, over Tom Perez, viewed as the establishment choice, are out of control. “It was over the top, and I contacted Keith, and Keith tried to stop it, to his credit. It took a while,” said Marcel L. Groen, chairman of the Pennsylvania Democrats. “I want their enthusiasm and energy, but I do

Activists in Arizona are rattled over a new bill brought before the state Senate that would dish out harsher sentences for undocumented immigrants compared to U.S. citizens, according to AZfamily.com. The bill under consideration, SB1279, will also make it impossible for undocumented felons to be released early on parole. The American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona stressed in an email Monday that individuals should voice concerns to their state senators, who are not expected to vote on the new measure until next week. In the meantime, the ACLU is devoting its time to convince politicians to turn down the proposal.

John McCain is increasingly mad as hell about President Trump. And on Friday, he went after Trump — hard. During a speech at the Munich Security Conference in Germany, the Republican senator from Arizona delivered a pointed and striking point-by-point takedown of Trump´s worldview and brand of nationalism. McCain didn´t mention Trump´s name once, but he didn´t have to. And even considering the two men´s up-and-down history and the terrible things Trump has said about McCain, it was a striking display from a senior leader of a party when it comes to a president of the same party. In his speech, McCain suggested

MUNICH, GERMANY Republican Senator John McCain broke with the reassuring message that U.S. officials visiting Germany have sought to convey on their debut trip to Europe, saying on Friday that the administration of President Donald Trump was in "disarray". McCain, a known Trump critic, told the Munich Security Conference that the resignation of the new president´s security adviser Michael Flynn over his contacts with Russia reflected deep problems in Washington. "I think that the Flynn issue obviously is something that shows that in many respects this administration is in disarray and they´ve got a lot of work to do," said McCain. "The president, I

Senator John McCain has emerged as one of the leading Republican voices pushing back against President Trump, and he had some tough words in response to Trump’s tweet calling the media the “enemy” of the American people. In a preview of his Meet the Press interview tomorrow, McCain told Chuck Todd that the free press is very important to American democracy. “I hate the press. I hate you especially,” he joked. “But the fact is, we need you. We need a free press.” Without a free and adversarial press, McCain said, Americans would lose their liberties and “that’s how dictators

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tore into President Trump Friday by arguing that his nascent administration has no accomplishments compared to his predecessor. Pelosi noted Friday on the same day in 2009, former President Barack Obama had already signed into law his $800 billion economic stimulus bill. "A jobs bill in the first four weeks passed and signed by the president today eight years ago," she said during the Families USA Health Action Conference in Washington. "Imagine in four weeks what this president has done and here we are. There´s no jobs bill, there´s no infrastructure bill." Pelosi´s comments comes a

The left and its echo chamber are convinced they are taking out Trump. It´s their "narrative" and they actually believe their own PR. They don’t see how they have driven themselves over the edge of reason and can no longer convince others. The only people they have convinced are themselves -- of their own righteousness. And they actually believe they have succeeded. Again. This echo chamber once held great power. They used to be able to form "narratives," ( activist storylines to decide and interpret news), persuade the powerful, and terrorize the right. They could make most Republicans quake just

Dr. Sebastian Gorka has a PhD, big vocabulary, huge knowledge base and even a British accent -- all the markers of an elitist establishment, if not leftist, thinker. But he seems to be in complete sync with his boss, President Trump. The BBC interviewer, with his fashionable three-day beard, open collar, and heavy ‘tude, probably was not expecting what he got when he led off his live shot interview from the White House lawn with a snarky dig at President Trump’s sanity.

SAN FRANCISCO — Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook will move beyond connecting family and friends to building "social infrastructure" critical to bringing people together in a "global community." In a nearly 5,800-word letter to Facebook users published on his Facebook page, Zuckerberg laid out his vision of what kind of world he believes Facebook can help create as it pushes back against a growing tide of anti-globalization sentiment. "Progress now requires humanity coming together not just as cities or nations, but also as a global community," Zuckerberg wrote. (Snip) Though the letter is long on utopian ideals, it´s short on actual details. Zuckerberg

The Trump administration is considering a proposal to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants, including millions living nowhere near the Mexico border, according to a draft memo obtained by The Associated Press. However, a senior administration official told NBC News the report was "false." The 11-page document calls for the unprecedented militarization of immigration enforcement as far north as Portland, Oregon, and as far east as New Orleans, Louisiana. Four states that border on Mexico are included in the proposal -- California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas -- but it also encompasses seven states contiguous to

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump is stuck in his own skull. He’s unreachable.“He lives inside his head, where he runs the same continuous loop of conflict with people he turns into enemies for the purposes of his psychodrama,” says Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio. Because Trump holds Thor’s hammer, with its notably short handle, we must keep trying to figure out his strange, perverse, aggrieved style of reasoning. So we’re stuck in Trump’s head with him.It’s a very cluttered place to be, a fine-tuned machine spewing a torrent of chaos, cruelty, confusion, farce and transfixing craziness. Of course, this is merely the observation of
