Steele Dossier More Than Anybody

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 12/13/2019 6:08:47 PM

Perhaps more than any other journalist, CNN’s Jim Sciutto has championed the Steele dossier, asserting in news articles and on-air segments that the FBI had verified central parts of the salacious document, and that the bureau would have corroborated the information before using it in applications for surveillance warrants against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.Sciutto reported Feb. 10, 2017, that U.S. officials had “corroborated some” parts of the dossier. He insisted Dec. 26, 2017, in a broadcast that the FBI would have corroborated information in the report before using it to spy on Page. Sciutto, a former Obama State Department official,

This is no surprise, Sciutto was a member of the Obama administration and now lies for CNN. He previously worked for ABC (married to an ABC reporterette) and also worked for the very liberal PBS. He lies like they all did/do, and he's a Democrat to boot, so again what he does and says is expected. It's how they are wired.

None of the media people or Democrat pols ever believed any of it. It was simply a narrative that they could spin to try to manipulate public opinion against Trump by repeating the "big lie" often enough. They are like Scientologists that know what really happens to children and heretics within their fake church but can show up on TV and spew the exact opposite lie to "protect the tech". In this case the "tech" is liberal orthodoxy that Trump is the devil and any lie or act of resistance, legal or illegal, is "fair game". They don't care that we now know how the FBI weaponized the FISA process to spy on Trump, they're just upset it didn't work and they got caught. They have no sense of shame about what they did and are proud they almost got a way with it. They will never apologize and are plotting the next coup attempt that starts right after the Senate dispenses with the sham articles of impeachment. Never underestimate the viciousness and relentlessness of people who are on a "mission to save the planet". They will use any means necessary to achieve the goals of their crackpot ideology.

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw ripped officials for launching an investigation into the “childish” hand signals flashed during the Army-Navy game on Saturday. Several cadets and shipmen were accused of white supremacy after flashing the OK symbol in the background of broadcasts covering the annual rivalry football game between the two military branches. The symbol, which is formed by making a circle with the forefinger and the thumb, has been considered by the Southern Poverty Law Center to be a white supremacist symbol, although it had long been considered the symbol for OK.

Americans who oppose large-scale immigration are “snakes and vermin,” says one of the most moderate columnists at the New York Times. The glib dismissal of ordinary Americans came from columnist Tom Edsall who has been warning progressives since 2016 they should listen to the concerns of ordinary Americans. But Edsall has apparently cracked under the stress of defending his fellow Americans from his radically “woke” elite peers, and he claimed on December 11: [Donald] Trump’s genius in 2016 lay in his willingness — indeed, his eagerness — to openly and aggressively unleash the forces of racial and ethnic hostility that Republican elites

CBS “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan asked Durbin about Page being treated “unfairly.”“Does the U.S. government owe Carter Page an apology?” she quizzed.“I can certainly tell you based on what we saw, they do,” Durbin replied. “And here’s the bottom line: many of us have been looking at this …

Clearly Greta Thunberg is being exploited by her cynical puppetmasters, but equally clearly she’s a tiresome, bizarre Marxist scold whose exploitation of the hapless dummies who buy into the climate change hoax is part of what is an increasingly violent plot to undermine capitalism and freedom. Recently, the cretins at TIME, which shockingly still exists in 2019, named her “Person of the Year.” (Snip) In 2029, after the world hasn’t ended but her usefulness has, she’ll be a Jeopardy question and probably shacked up with an unemployed performance artist named Björn in an Oslo suburb. Fun fact: “Greta Thunberg” is Swedish for “Cindy Sheenhan.”
