Washington Post Met Twice with Hoax
Dossier Author Christopher Steele
During 2016 Election

Breitbart Big Journalism, by Aaron Klein

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/9/2018 11:06:30 AM

The Washington Post for the first time detailed two meetings the newspaper reported it held with former British spy Christopher Steele, the author of the infamous, largely discredited 35-page anti-Trump dossier. At least one of the meetings was also attended by Glenn R. Simpson, co-founder of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS. The meetings took place in September and October of 2016. The Post wrote that it “made efforts to independently confirm Steele’s information at the time, but was unable to corroborate his specific findings and did not publish stories based on the material.” The first meeting was held in The Post’s

Comments:
I may be befogged, but didn’t Simpson fire Steele for talking with the media?

The FBI "fired" Steele for talking with the media. But they kept vouching for him everytime they had to snow the FISA Court Judge to sign another 3 month wiretapping warrant (and as my wife reminds me, most of those FISA court-authorized wiretappings happened AFTER the election and AFTER the inauguration.

Of course, the question that needs to be asked of the Washington Post and the rest of the RAT-infested media whores: "What did Steele tell you, when did he tell you, and why did you bury the news?"

So we’re led to believe that the WaPo has higher standards than the FBI? Think about that! The WaPo claims they had some doubt, so didn’t publish. But...the FBI plowed straight ahead w FISA warrants.
And neither had the smarts to ask ,“ Hey, who paid for this Op research?”
WaPo is covering their liberal collective arse big time. Somebody leaked bad news to them, otherwise they’d never intentionally diss or one-up the FBI.

So not good enough for the Post, but just fine for the FBI and FISA court? You know, one of the most powerful and secretive agencies in the world and the most secretive judicial body (with very little oversight) in the world.

FTA: "The Post wrote that it “made efforts to independently confirm Steele’s information at the time, but was unable to corroborate his specific findings and did not publish stories based on the material.”

Wow. They knew the dossier was a fraud, but sat on the story? The WaPo just shattered its own self proclaimed reputation for professional investigative journalism. Where are Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward when you need them.

This makes the WaPo a self-admitted co-conspirator in the coup to overthrow a duly elected President of the United States of America.

Amazing the WaPo had higher ethical standards than the FBI for not publishing what they could not verify, in this particular matter?

Yet, didn´t have the ethical standards to print they couldn´t verify the document they were reporting on in other stories?

More and more coming out clearly showing Trump had ZERO collusion with the Russians, and more KNOW.

I´ll bet many on the Democrat side on the Senate and House intelligence committees know all of this already too, but choose to not say in hopes all for political reasons.

A soldier needed an ear transplant.
Doctors ‘grew’ a new one in her arm.
Washington Post, by Allyson Chiu    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 5/10/2018 8:17:11     Post Reply
Two years ago, Army Pvt. Shamika Burrage almost died when she was ejected from her car during a crash in Texas. Afterward, when she woke up in the hospital, she wasn’t whole. Her entire left ear was gone. But the now-21-year-old is on the path to recovery. In a procedure hailed as the “first of its kind” in the Army, an ear was reconstructed and “grown” under the skin of her right forearm, according to the Army. No prosthetics were needed. Instead, plastic surgeons used the soldier’s own cartilage. The ear was later attached to Burrage’s head by surgeons at William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso.

Former Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) discussed the Iran nuclear agreement on Thursday’s Breitbart News Daily, stating that President Donald Trump’s announcement on Tuesday that the United States is pulling out of the deal “took guts.” “I actually think it’s a great thing,” Lieberman told Breitbart Editor-in-chief Alex Marlow. “I think the president made the correct decision, and, frankly, it’s a courageous decision.” Lieberman, who now is on the advisory board at the Gatestone Institute and chairman of United Against Nuclear Iran, said former President Barack Obama “basically gave all our leverage away” and only

President Trump announced Thursday that he will meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore on June 12, locking in a historic, high-stakes summit aimed at curbing the rogue nation’s nuclear weapons program. Trump made the announcement on Twitter just hours after welcoming home three Americans held captive for more than a year in North Korea during a dramatic overnight visit to meet their plane at Joint Base Andrews outside Washington. The triumphant moment appeared to persuade Trump to overcome any final hesi­ta­tion about the summit, which has been viewed as a potential reward to an outlaw

So, yeah, it’s kind of obvious why Robert Mueller’s “secret questions that he wants to ask Trump” got leaked to the New York Times. I could have written these questions. Because . . . I read the New York Times. Anybody with access to Google Search could have written these questions. Mueller got half of them from reporting in the Times and the Washington Post. There’s no background to these questions that’s not already known to, like, everybody in the world.

Please note this story first broke in 2013. Within a year this same story disappeared and the same media was fawning over Hillary Clinton becoming president in 2016. The clues in the video are significant regarding the scope of the crime and the “higher up” powers involved. An Obama administration ambassador was allegedly found participating in a far-reaching pedophilia ring – and that’s where the story ends. No further disclosures. No trial. No media frenzy. No charges filed. No punishment. No justice. Nothing. The Deep State covered it all up. The question is why. The potential answer is chilling. (NOTE:

If anyone wants to know why the Deep State of the nation´s intelligence and law enforcement services missed 9/11, they should read Victor Davis Hanson´s column, "The Trump Land Mine." He makes the argument that in trying to get The Donald, they made the mistake of not knowing who their quarry was. "If the deep state really wanted to dismantle and disarm Donald Trump, it would have been wise first to carefully learn how he was constructed and wired — and thus why he was especially dangerous to them. Then to disarm him, elites would have had to offer superior agendas to

Following Tuesday´s primary loss by Congressman Robert Pittenger of North Carolina, there are now 63 open seats in the House in November. Republicans hold 44 of them, Democrats 19. Meanwhile, three of the eight Republicans up for re-election this year are leaving, and with John McCain preparing for his funeral, it is likely that there will four open Senate seats now held by Republicans. Given that open seats are the most likely to flip to the other party, Republicans are worried, and should be. But not necessarily for the reasons the experts give. If Republicans hold on to Congress --

Based only on a tweet from the insanely partisan Michael Avenatti, the attorney representing porn star Stormy Daniels, NBC News (home of proven liars Joy Reid and Brian Williams) chose to light the world on fire with this overcooked nothingburger: “Daniels’ lawyer: Cohen got $500K from Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg.“ The implication, of course, is that it was actually a Russian oligarch (with close ties to Putin natch) who paid the $130,000 to silence Stormy so Trump could become president and turn the White House over to the Kremlin.(Snip)Except… There is no proof that the “company controlled by a Russian Oligarch with

John McCain’s Republican Party is over, perhaps before it even got started. That’s the argument Daniel McCarthy makes at Spectator/USA. It is worth considering. McCain has always enjoyed being called a “maverick”—a moniker used by friend and foe alike in describing him.(Snip)Yet McCain, in spite of his fairly unoriginal path to advancement (is there a quicker way for a Republican to get the attention of the media than to denounce his own party?), did manage to stumble into a formula that for one brief shining moment looked like it might work for him and for the GOP in 2008.

When President Trump presided over a business roundtable in Cleveland last weekend, it was one of several events he has hosted in the Midwest since Election Day. Trump held a raucous victory rally in Ohio just a few weeks after he won the presidency, and has since made frequent trips to Indiana, Wisconsin, and Michigan: He will visit Elkhart, Indiana on Thursday. Trump skipped the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last month and instead campaigned in central Michigan. “I love this state and I love the people of this state,” Trump told the enthusiastic crowd. “You may have heard I was invited to

McCain acknowledged in January 2017 that he delivered a dossier of “sensitive information” to then-FBI Director James Comey. In his upcoming book, "The Restless Wave," McCain wrote that he "did what duty demanded I do" in passing on the documents. “I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” McCain said, according to excerpts of the book published

Two unnamed sources told The Hill that Sadler took issue with McCain´s criticism of President Donald Trump´s CIA nominee, Gina Haspel, allegedly dismissing the ailing McCain, saying "he´s dying anyway." McCain on Wednesday said that Haspel is unfit to run the CIA because she would not say definitively that torture is immoral. That issue is one of several that have made Haspel´s journey toward Senate confirmation an uphill battle.

Her scarf was tied high around her neck and covered the top of her navy blue jacket.
