OMG: Christopher Steele Has Written Another "Dossier," This One Alleging That Russian Spies Attempted to Collude With Conservative British MPs, Including... Boris Johnson

This time, the allegation is that RUSSIAN BOTS caused Brexit to pass.

This guy's specialty seems to be taking political defeats that leftists just can't or won't accept, and then taking a lot of money to spin a pleasing conspiracy theory for them which they can then weaponize to overturn the results of the electoral defeat they refuse to accept.

The Guardian, on this past Monday:

PM accused of cover-up over report on Russian meddling in UK politics

Boris Johnson was on Monday night accused of presiding over a cover-up after it emerged that No 10 refused to clear the publication of a potentially incendiary report examining Russian infiltration in British politics, including the Conservative party.

...

Fresh evidence has also emerged of attempts by the Kremlin to infiltrate the Conservatives by a senior Russian diplomat suspected of espionage, who spent five years in London cultivating leading Tories including Johnson himself.

It can now be revealed that Sergey Nalobin -- who once described the future prime minister as "our good friend"-- lives in a Moscow apartment block known as the "FSB house" because it houses so many employees from the Kremlin's main spy agency.

The committee’s report is based on analysis from Britain’s intelligence agencies, as well as third-party experts such as the former MI6 officer Christopher Steele
, and is subject to a final clearance from Downing Street.

...

Another guest was Johnson's future girlfriend Carrie Symonds, a Tory party activist. At the time she worked in the office of John Whittingdale, the pro-Brexit MP who was the group’s honorary vice-president. The group collapsed after revelations of Nalobi'’s alleged ties with the Kremlin’s SVR foreign intelligence agency.

Over the weekend, the shadow foreign secretary, Emily Thornberry, raised questions over Cummings’ connections to Russia, and the levels of security vetting to which he had been subject, after an official whistleblower raised concerns with her.

So, here we have:

* A report partly compiled by Christopher Steele

* A "whistleblower"

* An attempt to claim that because this person knows this person and that person knows a Russian, the Russians have kompromat

* An attempt to claim that the Russians are in league with the party that's been opposing them for 100 years, and to claim that they're working against the party that's been promoting Soviet/Russian interests and in fact has frequently produced actual bona-fide Soviet agents.

* An attempt to weaponize this bullshit to swing an upcoming election

Wait wait wait wait wait -- I'm pretty sure I've seen some of this before.

Rolling Stone's leftist, but anti-Deep-State, Matt Taibbi thinks this all sounds suspiciously familiar too.

Christopher Steele became famous in the United States as the author of a "dossier" that claimed Russians had been "cultivating, supporting, and assisting" Donald Trump "for at least 5 years."

Now Steele is back, claiming that the Russians have been cultivating the Tories and Boris Johnson for… five years.

You can’t make this stuff up.

...

Steele, in fact, was a private opposition researcher hired by the "premium research" firm Fusion-GPS, on behalf of the Hillary Clinton campaign. [Steele's planted] Yahoo story came out on September 23, 2016; it would be over a year before Steele's status as a paid Clinton researcher would be made public.

After Isikoff's piece came out, the Clinton campaign released a statement about how it was "chilling" to learn that "U.S. intelligence officials" were "conducting a probe into suspected meetings between Trump’s foreign policy adviser Carter Page and members of Putin's inner circle."

He points out that this is a common tactic, to "comment gravely" in reaction to a story you yourself planted, as if you're taken aback and just beginning to wrestle with the implications of this stunning and independent reportage.

He then takes us through three years of conspiracy theories by the media, and Jake Tapper's role in attempting to keep the dossier secret while dribbling out details that might seem important -- until you actually got to read the whole pee-soaked ream of nonsense.

Which Tapper got very angry at BuzzFeed Ben publishing.

And he notes the four "Sneaky Petes" -- who I assume are Brennan, Clapper, Comey, and maybe Andrew McCabe? -- arranged to have an inadequate and deliberately-redacted version of this "briefed" to Trump, with the strong implication that this was all just a set-up to give Tapper, Scuitto, Bernstein, and Glenn Simspon's literal best friend and former partner at the WSJ, Even Perez, the "news hook" they needed to report about the dossier -- vaguely, insinuatingly, and for maximum political impact.

And of course he can't help noticing that Christopher Steel and, who knows, perhaps Fusion GPS is running the exact same playbook again, this time against Boris Johnson, Brexit, and the Tories, and that once again, the media is packaging this horseshit up and shoveling it out to the public without a scintilla of skepticism -- or context.

When we let stuff like this go, the public sees us as fools, at which point it doesn’t matter whether what we write is for or against any politician, because nobody believes us anyway. Is this really the industry standard we’re gunning for? Are we never going to own up to this one?

Answers: Yes and yes.

Say... How come Jake Tapper and the NeverTrumpers who pushed the first Christopher Steele hoax aren't reporting at all on this new "dossier"?

Is that because it would immediately become obvious to anyone who heard of this new "dossier" that Steele is running the exact same play on a different country's citizens and political system?

Is it because it would embarrass them and reduce their credibility if they let people know that Christopher Steele has a new hoax out?

Maybe they should be asked at their favorite place in the world, Twitter.

From JackStraw: Get this, Fiona Hill and Christopher Steele are gay old chums.

34 Of course everybody sneers and says, "Too far out. That'll never happen."

That is one of the challenges of fiction and art. You can write real life stuff that happened and get criticized because that's too crazy nobody will believe it. Patrick O'Brian mentioned that in his preface to one of the Aubrey/Maturin books. He couldn't actually use some of the bits he researched because it was too unbelievable for fiction.

And in art... people demand that someone be depicted in a certain way, or they say its poorly drawn. But real life people are often so strange looking and distorted that no artist would attempt it.

Yes their purpose is to crush Trump and Western Civilization, but there is a little kernel of life somewhere in their petty minds that says 'journalists need facts.'

And so, blatant obvious lies like the Steele Dossier give them that excuse, the ability to think to themselves, 'this is okay to report now' and thus absolve themselves of any blame in the destruction of Western Civilization.

80 I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said-"Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!

99 Anyone else see that impromptu presser with Trump on the White House lawn a short while ago?

He said "I caught the Swamp...I caught them all...I caught all this corruption that was going on, and nobody else could have done it."

Typically Trump uses the word "we" in speaking of these matters, but instead he personalized it.

Which leads me to wonder whether there have been some other high-level sting operations going on behind the scenes.

Whatever he meant by that statement, apparently in his own mind, at least, the rolling up of this corruption is now a foregone conclusion.

Right, framing the Reaction properly is important ... because when you plant the smoking gun ... you can also plant the proper Response.

Get the fake narrative capsulized, packaged with the fake talking points ... lest other observers get off message and fail to see the (rigged) connections.

That's exactly what it is. This is the song of people who have thrown up their hands, helpless to do anything about how corrupt and broken the government has become -- or at least, unwilling to take the necessary steps required to deal with it.

Filled with apes

Stepping on the figs

Eat, they crunch.

Their fangs, dance,
Tumble in the

Musty, wet pelts
Glistening in the blue.

231 Diana West:

"Steele was known as a "confirmed socialist," "an avowedly left-wing student with CND credentials." Another detail that fits the context of ideological profiling is that Steele would eulogize his late first wife as "always on the progressive side of an argument."

Let's decode this further. "CND" stands for Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, the Marxist-infiltrated organization deemed subversive by MI5 for its links and efforts, especially in the 1970s and 1980s, to disarm Britain, force U.S. cruise missiles off British bases, and decouple Europe generally from the U.S.-led NATO allianc--at the time, the primary goals of Soviet foreign policy and its aggressive "nuclear freeze" and "peace movement" disinformation campaign.

Further, as president of the Cambridge Union in 1986, Steele extended the debating society's first invitation ever to a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization, at the time still regarded as a terrorist organization by the United States and Israel, not to mention one of the Soviet Union's proxy terror-armies against the West.

Despite these and other indicators of strong left-wing and even pro-Soviet beliefs, British intelligence hired Steele following graduation from Cambridge and dispatched him to Soviet-era Moscow."

I don't know that that's true. Honestly, I hear this a lot, and the term really is used to mean "someone who's out of it or clueless," like a LIV or like a technophobe or etc.

I mean, yes, the word is *coming * from the idea that boomers just don't grasp the New Shit the stupid millennials are doing, but I hear the term from older people too.

Ethan Van Sciver says it. He's not a boomer, he's a gen xer, but he's not the kind of person who would casually hate on boomers. He's always calling himself a boomer when he messes up.

They are hard leftists who are very apprehensive of the powers of the government to go after and surveil innocent people. They also hate when CIA/FBI bad actors use the gullible press to get their narratives out. They don't excuse it just because they're side did it. I respect them for that.
Posted by: Benji Carver at November 08, 2019 02:16 PM (OD2ni)

All of that, and one thing more - Taibbi is one of the only journalists working today who has enough self awareness to realize that the way they're behaving is destroying their entire industry. Once everyone believes you're constant liars, why would anyone read (or pay attention to) anything you ever said again? Once forfeited, credibility never comes back.

You have to wonder if deep down in her lizard brain, she's thinking "I'm not presidential. WTH are they thinking?" Self-sabotage?

407 399 I'm an X'er and pretty much loathe the boomers as well as the millennials. Both generations seem to stupid turned up to 11. My kids seemed to miss the millennial stupid sjw streak. Boomers as a generation are some of the squirrely people I know. Each generation has its own unique stupid though.

I think we give the boomers (Gen Xer here) a bad rap because the counter culture won in the 60s. But there were legions of normals who were going WTF during the whole deal. Probably including a lot of our parents. I know it was true for mine.

408 I kind of wonder if Bloomberg tossing his big gulp into the ring is really about trying to reframe all of the candidates by getting them to talk about shit that is not quite so crazy.
Posted by: Aetius451AD

Even if true, their insane base will demand the crazy be discussed. I mean, if they try to walk back, say gun confiscation, and hide their intent with something like "sensible gun control" still meaning confiscation, the base will go insane angry. They don't understand or care to practice deceit.

I think instinctively the powers that be want to shift back closer to center, and will probably try, but it's just not going to work this time.

414 Bloomberg running.....

The nations citizens will elect a President in 360 days from today.

Bloomberg states that he is concerned that no current candidate can beat Trump in the election.

And the Impeachment debacle continues apace.

These fuckers are terrified that Trump will win re-election.

Posted by: Village Idiot's Apprentice at November 08, 2019 03:04 PM (cqNba)

415 Bloomberg cannot stand Trump, but it also knows that Warren and Sanders are death for his "empire". He's basically protecting his turf. That said, he's as thin-skinned as they come, arrogant, nanny-stater, gun-grabber, and, worse of all for the lunatic Donk base, a Rich Old White Guy(tm).
Posted by: DocJ at November 08, 2019 02:53 PM (77WPm)

Agreed, but if you read Bloomberg's magazines, listen to the radio, or look at the editorial coming from the website, it's hard to find a reporter there who would say a bad word about either Warren or Sanders.

Yep.

That pretty much defines my parents to a T, my dad less so, but considering his love of In The Navy, I have to wonder.

My daughters are not SJWs, thank God, and though the younger is hippie-ish, she's an amazing mom to the best g-babies in the world.

=========

And, look at how Tom Steyer's entrance to the race affected things:

Not at all. And the dude's spent literally tens of millions of his own dollars to prop himself up.

Bloomberg, much like Steyer, has no natural constituency in national politics. It's going to be a giant waste of money.

I applaud that.

Respectfully disagree. I have been reading a lot of Greenwald, Taibbi
and Michael Tracey. They are hard leftists who are very apprehensive of
the powers of the government to go after and surveil innocent people.
They also hate when CIA/FBI bad actors use the gullible press to get
their narratives out. They don't excuse it just because they're side did
it. I respect them for that.

Posted by: Benji Carver at November 08, 2019 02:16 PM (OD2ni)



All of that, and one thing more - Taibbi is one of the only
journalists working today who has enough self awareness to realize that
the way they're behaving is destroying their entire industry. Once
everyone believes you're constant liars, why would anyone read (or pay
attention to) anything you ever said again? Once forfeited,
credibility never comes back.

************************Exactly. They see the 'mainstream' media making total assclowns out of themselves and destroying whatever limited credibility they still had. Tracey has a particularly good Twitter feed, pointing out the hypocrisy of all of them.
