President Trump: "Are we living in Nazi Germany?"

Original headline:

CNN begins Watergating President Trump

CNN, the New York Times, and every other media outlet that went with the Fake News that Russia is blackmailing Donald Trump pissed away what little credibility they have left.


For weeks, Rick Wilson has peddled a story that Russia has the goods on The Donald making him a pawn of Putin. The story is so bizarre that it includes an allegation that Trump hired hookers to piss on a bed in Moscow that Obama had slept in.

Apparently, the CIA investigated this and found nothing to it, and filed a report saying so.

Wilson appears on cable TV regularly as a political consultant without anyone disclosing whom he works for. I learned long ago to be wary of the man in politics who has no visible means of support. Whoever he works for hates Trump.

There were no immediate buyers of what Wilson sold. I mean, he had this blockbuster story about Trump that no one in a media that is 90 percent Democratic wanted.

But on Tuesday, something changed.

CNN ran with this -- "Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him" -- as the network laid down its marker that this is Watergate. It even included an aging Carl Bernstein's name on the quadruple byline.

From CNN:
Classified documents presented last week to President Obama and President-elect Trump included allegations that Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump, multiple US officials with direct knowledge of the briefings tell CNN.
The real story is who leaked classified information to CNN?

From CNN:
The Trump transition team declined repeated requests for comment.
Appearing on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Kellyanne Conway, a senior Trump adviser, dismissed the memos, as unverified and untrue.
A late-night comic has more credibility than CNN, and President Trump is acting accordingly.

So what was in this classified report?

A dossier making explosive — but unverified — allegations that the Russian government has been “cultivating, supporting and assisting” President-elect Donald Trump for years and gained compromising information about him has been circulating among elected officials, intelligence agents, and journalists for weeks.
The dossier, which is a collection of memos written over a period of months, includes specific, unverified, and potentially unverifiable allegations of contact between Trump aides and Russian operatives, and graphic claims of sexual acts documented by the Russians.
BuzzFeed News reporters in the US and Europe have been investigating various alleged facts in the dossier but have not verified or falsified them. CNN reported Tuesday that a two-page synopsis of the report was given to President Obama and Trump.
Now BuzzFeed News is publishing the full document so that Americans can make up their own minds about allegations about the president-elect that have circulated at the highest levels of the US government.
Welcome to Fake News. The site got 2.5 million hits and the high-brow News Fakers found a way to move forward with a story everyone agrees is fake.

The New York Times, et cetera, were able to get the allegations in print without any substantiation. You just say these allegations are unverified and attribute it to BuzzFeed.

Mind you, the New York Times refused to go with the story of John Edwards cheating on his cancer-stricken wife even after photos of his love child were published.

Wasn't it just two days ago that these same outlets complained about unsubstantiated reports of Hillary henchman John Podesta leading a pedophile ring? This is the first time I am mentioning pizzagate, as well as the last time.

Never Trumper John Podhoretz leaped in with a passive-aggressive attack on President Trump by clucking his tongue at Buzz Feed for publishing "those terrible allegations," which he then described. "Some of them have to do with Trump’s personal sexual conduct."

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.
Zero Hedge then listed a bunch on screen shots and the like, before concluding:
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?
Maybe Wilson used the site in an attempt to sell the story.

That is not as important as this is: the media is not backing down on President Trump.

Perhaps we are witnessing another collaboration among the highly politicized elements of the CIA -- remember Valerie Plame? -- and dubious sites funded by who knows whom, the press is going to manufacture a Watergate just as it tried with Bush 43.

Remember, the man passed over to be FBI director was the Deep Throat in Watergate. Government employees are powerful enemies.

And unlike Bush 43 who survived Plamegate, Trump like Nixon has few friends in Washington. John McCain would love to Goldwater him and force Trump to resign, don't you think?

We live in a dangerous time in which our democratic republic just may be clinging parlously to the cliff high with only a pool of fascism below.

Can't happen here?

It already has.

The press aided and abetted a Democratic Congress in overthrowing a duly elected president (by 49 states) in 1974.


Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.

It covers the nomination process only. The general election will be covered in a sequel.

  1. President-Elect Trump appears to have the right idea about restructuring our intelligence agencies. They have become hives of partisanship, especially during the Obama years. With his reverse King Midas touch Obama has perverted pretty much every agency in the federal government: the IRS, EPA, CIA, Department of Education, State Department, etc. It's past time we remind all federal employees that they work for the U.S. Citizenry. - Elric

  2. I've changed my mind. Donald should stay on Twitter after next Friday. To shoot back at these bastards who fellated Barry for eight years and just now have decided they're "responsible journalists" again.

  3. Brainstem media, Republican strategists and CIA all trolled by /pol/. This was all started when guys sitting in their parent's basements in their pajamas proved that Dan Rather's story about GWB shirking duty was fake. Even if you're a pro at what you do, you aren't smarter that the crowdsourced brains of these kids. They see tendencies and recognize patterns that even the main actors don't notice and take advantage of them. It's like working a con. The mark wants something so bad, the con finds a way to make him think he's getting it and he wants it so bad that he can't see the con coming. If the Brainstem media had any higher level function they would start fact checking themselves. How many decades has it been with them doing otherwise now? Are they capable of simple learning, or will they ever do more than react with primal functionality? I thought we were supposed to be the reactionaries. This is all backwards.

  4. 'We live in a dangerous time in which our democratic republic just may be clinging parlously (sic) to the cliff high with only a pool of fascism below.'

    This has gone way past a bad acid trip or those bitter peyote button milk shakes.

    If they're not careful that III doctrine of 'never shoot first', and always take the high ground, advocated by the late Mike V, may well go out the door.

    I'm a spectator...for now. Because this is surreal.

  5. Best line in the history:
    Mom come quick my fan fiction got published by the CIA.

    1. Tweeted by the guy who did it.

    2. Now THAT was a great two-fer posting!

  6. Implosion of this country begins in 9 days. Same said implosion was inevitable had Hillary won.

  7. i pissed myself reading the claims. They are so ludicrous. But the underlying lying and dishonesty of the media and now possibly the CIA/intelligence community is no laughing matter.

  8. Trump will weather these lies if the Republicans stand with him. It appears the intelligence agencies can see massive layoffs coming and are trying to protect what they can of their careers. This rot in the press will be a test for Ryan and McConnell.I despised Hairy Reed and Pelosi but they defended Obama to the death. What will R and M do? The naked power of corporate American News, all of whom invested millions in a political prostitute only to be ripped off, is behind these allegations so the perps will never be outed. Don often says they have lost all credibility. The porblem is they do not care. Conspiracy theory and salacious stories make money today, truth does not. Mammon is the reigning God in Manhattan where all these rodents flourish, and He has an altar burning green with incense in every single house. 89% of them voted for HC, 89%, and all their daughters had cry ins in their elegant private schools the day after Armageddon.
    This is war but has to be fought like one. The politicians have to stand by Trump and produce positive economic results. If they do they will win.

  9. Total amateurs, whoever are trying to discredit Trump.

    By making it about sex, everything else in the "report" is buried and forgotten.

  10. Pizzagate actually had more evidence backing it up.

  11. What is interesting- I wonder f some of the Career
    CIA spooks knew this was fake,let it go to discredit the political Obama/Hillary Klowns in the Org. and the MSM...

  12. We all know if this story were about Bill or Hill or Obama, it never would have seen the light. Trump and all Republicans are in the free-fire zone.

  13. What I'm hearing now is that the 4Chan stuff wasn't in the CIA report. The press and the public are jumbling them up. No evidence that Intel was misled by it.

  14. Fakestream media.
    Fakestream media.
    Fakestream media.


  15. The Daily Mail is reporting John McCain gave the story to Comey, who passed it on....are we really sure McCain was on our side in the Vietnam War?

    1. Songbird McCain is on McCain's side. Then, now, and always.

  16. Huh, lamestream media got it wrong again.

    It's actually Barry & Michael that enjoy golden showers, which is why they've pissed all over our Republic!

  17. Ever dealt with a skunk caught in a leg hold trap?
    It does not matter to the skunk if you are there to free it of kill it, it will attack you with every thing it has until you kill it.
    That is the mentality of the media right now. They are fish bait and know it. Like a certain former leader of Germany though, they will not simply give up and go away, they will destroy any thing and every thing as the sun goes down on them.
