Fusion GPS rats out John McCain on Trump ‘Russian dossier’

Fusion GPS is the opposition research firm that, in 2016, was first hired by unnamed Republican(s) during the GOP primaries to dig up dirt on Donald Trump. After Trump won the GOP primaries to become the Republican presidential nominee, the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign hired Fusion GPS to do the same.

Note: According to Fusion GPS (see below), the conservative news website Washington Free Beacon were the Republicans who hired the firm.

Fusion GPS then hired a former MI6 spook named Christopher Steele, who proceeded to concoct what became known as the “Russian dossier” on Trump, which included the fictitious “golden shower” account of Trump hiring Russian prostitutes to urinate on a Moscow hotel bed.

Someone, long rumored to be Sen. “snake tongue” “wandering boot” John McCain — whose foundation (McCain Institute) is funded by George Soros, the Rothschilds and the Saudis — then gave the Russian dossier to the website Buzzfeed, which published it in January 2017.

Carl Bernstein in January 2017 first identified John McCain as having been given the Russian dossier by Chris Steele. According to Bernstein, McCain then handed it to the FBI. (New York Post)

Now we have confirmation of the McCain rumor, from none other than Fusion GPS.

On January 2, 2018, in a New York Times op/ed, Fusion GPS’ founders and former journalists Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch identified The Washington Free Beacon and Hillary’s campaign as, respectively, the Republican and Democratic funders of its Trump research who “separately came to hire us [Fusion GPS] in the first place.”

This is what Simpson and Fritsch wrote about John McCain:

After the election, Mr. Steele decided to share his intelligence with Senator John McCain via an emissary. We helped him do that. The goal was to alert the United States national security community to an attack on our country by a hostile foreign power. We did not, however, share the dossier with BuzzFeed, which to our dismay published it last January.

What is ironic is that it’s John McCain who, in 2008, had illegally solicited campaign contribution from Russia.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid forced to apology after her anti-gay comments in old blog posts

joy reid

From Fox News: MSNBC host Joy Reid wrote a dozen blog posts from 2007-2009 containing offensive homophobic remarks and anti-gay jokes.

The old blog posts — unearthed by a Twitter user and reported by Mediaite — targeted former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, whom Reid mocked as “Miss Charlie” for being gay and closeted even though there was never any proof that he was. The posts fanned rumors of Crist’s sexual orientation and his political opponents tried to tar him with the gossip during his governorship.

The controversial host apologized Sunday for the posts. “This note is my apology to all who are disappointed by the content of blogs I wrote a decade ago, for which my choice of words and tone have legitimately been criticized,” Reid said in a statement to Fox News.

“As a writer, I pride myself on a facility with language — an economy of words or at least some wisdom in the selection,” she said. “However, that clearly has not always been the case.”

Mediate reported it was able to retrieve the posts from Reid’s blog, which no longer exists, through an online archiving service. “Miss Charlie, Miss Charlie, Stop pretending, brother,” Reid wrote in a 2007 post, according to the media outlet. “It’s okay that you don’t go for the ladies.”

In another, the AM Joy host wrote, “Now that he’s married to a girl, Charlie Crist is being sought out for all KINDS of good stuff… [The GOP] are wooing Miss Charlie to run.”

In a Dec. 12, 2008, post, Reid belittled Crist as dreading physical relations with his wife on their honeymoon. “I can just see poor Charlie on the honeymoon, ogling the male waiters and thinking to himself, ‘god, do I actually have to see her naked…?’” she wrote.

The same blog post included a joke about Crist having sex with Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., Mediaite reported. “Get your mind out of the gutter,” she joked. Reid commented in the blog that the reason the former Florida governor got married to another woman in the first place was to help him become McCain’s 2008 running mate.

Mediaite counted 17 times Reid derisively referred to Crist as “Miss Charlie.” The subject led her to opine on why gay men stay in the closet. “When a gay politician gets married, it usually indicates that he is highly ambitious, and desires to put himself in a position to move up the power ladder,” she wrote.

She further mocked Crist with tags “gay politicians” and “not gay politicians.”

In her statement, Reid said her blog posts were written at the time when Crist was a conservative Republican, whose positions on issues like gay marriage and adoption by same-sex couples in Florida shared headlines with widely rumored reports that he was hiding his sexual orientation. “Those reports were the subject of lots of scrutiny,” she said.

“Let me be clear: at no time have I intentionally sought to demean or harm the LGBT community, which includes people whom I deeply love,” she said. “My goal, in my ham-handed way, was to call out potential hypocrisy.” 

She added, “Nonetheless, as someone who is not a member of the LGBT community, I regret the way I addressed the complex issue of the closet and speculation on a person’s sexual orientation with a mocking tone and sarcasm. It was insensitive, tone deaf and dumb.”

She also apologized to Crist, who she said was the target of her “thoughtlessness.”

Reid drew fire in June for criticizing House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., after he was shot in the hip by a gunman targeting Republican members of Congress. She claimed his record on race was being ignored as a result of the shooting.

John McCain switched orthopedic boot to healthy left foot ‘to give it a break’

On November 6, 2017, RINO Sen. John McCain was seen wearing an orthopedic or walking boot on his right leg because, we were told, of a “minor tear” in his right Achilles’ tendon.

Coincidentally (or not), Hillary Clinton also has an orthopedic boot on her right foot, ostensibly because she had broken her right foot’s big toe when she “ran downstairs in heels and fell backward”.

That both Hillary and McCain are wearing clumsy walking boots led to speculation in the Alternative Media that their boots are not for a torn Achilles’ tendon and broken big toe. They have those walking boots on to conceal their ankle monitors, like the one below. See “Are Hillary’s and John McCain’s orthopedic boots actually ankle bracelets?

On November 22, 2017, McCain tweeted a pic of himself and his wife, Cindy, which shows his orthopedic boot had moved to his left leg.

Below are side-by-side pics of McCain on Nov. 22 (l) and on Nov. 6 (r).

McCain switching the walking boot to his left leg simply reinforced online speculation about an ankle monitor. Old people’s skin gets very thin and easily bruised. The ankle monitor probably was chafing 81-year-old McCain’s skin, so he requested the monitor be moved to his left ankle, thus necessitating a walking boot on his left leg for concealment.

In a tweet yesterday, McCain admitted that he’d switched the boot from his right to left leg.

And the reason? — to give his left leg “a break” because it was doing extra work to compensate for the boot being on his right leg.

He must really think us to be stupid.

Some choice tweets in response:

tbswisher: “Orthopedic boots are to stabilize bones…not overworked muscles. Try again..”

Johnny: “Your explanation is to cause more strain to your healing torn tendon foot? You do realize how ridiculous you sound right?”

Straight Shooter: “I wore a boot for 6 weeks after a while it wasn’t a big deal! You get used to it! Certainly wasn’t advised by my surgeon to switch which leg I had it on!”

Cynthia Lovely: “Wearing a boot is exhausting. But how in the world does switching it help?! Put the burden on the actual injured/just healed leg b/c the other got tired?! Absurd!!”

WWE4LIFE: “Why you always lying?”

ILOVETheDonald: “Did someone come to your house and switch it to the other leg? Was it a LEO? GPS moniters that size can’t be left on for too long.”

Prospective USA: “Is the boot there to hide your ankle bracelet……”

Sherwood57: “Whatever! You know none of us believe that shit. Stick your head in the sand, John.”

Texas Sheepdog: “Did you tweet this out because you’re going to try to claim mental incompetence to avoid prosecution? That’s what it sure looks like… but it’s not going to work. For just once in your life, how about you grow a pair, man TF up and face the consequences of your actions? Coward”

ANNORA11: “RETIRE !!!!!!!”

Bradd Powless: “Another lie to coverup a lie.”

Viva Covfefe!: “Liar!”

Deplorable Rocketman: “How strange. I work in a hospital and all the doctors think you’re full of it. How’s the ankle monitor?”

mike diaz: “LOL nice try man but no one believes this shit”

Did I say that?: “I thought you were dying?”

John McCain’s wandering orthopedic boot

Remember this pic of Sen. John McCain on November 6, 2017, wearing an orthopedic or walking boot on his right foot?

We are told he needed the boot because of a “minor tear” in his right Achilles’ tendon.

Coincidentally, Hillary Clinton also has an orthopedic boot on her right foot, ostensibly because she had broken her right foot’s big toe when she “ran downstairs in heels and fell backward”.

That gave rise to speculations on the Alternative Media that McCain’s and Hillary’s boots are not for their respective torn Achilles’ tendon and broken big toe. They have those walking boots on to conceal their ankle monitors. See “Are Hillary’s and John McCain’s orthopedic boots actually ankle bracelets?

This morning, McCain tweeted a pic of himself and his wife, Cindy, which lends credence to that conspiracy theory.

His orthopedic boot in now on his left foot! LOL

Here are side-by-side pics of McCain’s wandering boot:

By the way, the above right picture is not “mirrored” or flipped because it correctly shows the buttons on the right side of McCain’s jacket, consistent with men’s jackets.

Nor is the picture of McCain and his wife “mirrored” or flipped because it shows Cindy’s wedding ring on her left hand (as it should), and the buttons on the right side of McCain’s shirt.

Conclusion: Between November 6 and November 22, John McCain switched his walking boot from his right foot to his left foot.

That’s the problem with lying — you have to remember and keep straight your lies.

John McCain slams “half-baked, spurious nationalism” sweeping the US

john-mccain-lord-of-the-tarp1

Ugh.

From Yahoo (via GMA): Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., slammed “half-baked, spurious nationalism” in an impassioned speech while accepting the Liberty Medal in Philadelphia.

McCain, who was presented with the medal by former Vice President Joe Biden, began by saying he was humbled by the award before eventually lashing out at the nationalism that has swept the U.S. and warning against leaving the nation’s place of prominence in the international community.

“To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain the last best hope of earth for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history,” McCain said, to applause.

“We live in a land made of ideals, not blood and soil,” he continued. “… We have done great good in the world. That leadership has had its costs, but we have become incomparably powerful and wealthy as we did.”

He added: “We have a moral obligation to continue in our just cause, and we would bring more than shame on ourselves if we don’t. We will not thrive in a world where our leadership and ideals are absent. We wouldn’t deserve to.”

In introducing McCain, Biden praised his “courage and loyalty.”

“I can think of no better description for the man we’re honoring tonight,” Biden said.

McCain revealed in July that he had been diagnosed with brain cancer. He has clashed with President Donald Trump over Republicans’ repeated attempts to repeal and replace Obamacare, including most recently when he said he could not “in good conscience” vote for the Graham-Cassidy bill. In response, Trump called McCain’s opposition to the bill “terrible, honestly terrible.”

Where were you when black racists & antifa terrorists assault whites & conservatives?

Last weekend, a planned “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, to protest the removal of Confederate monuments from public spaces, descended into violence when white nationalists clashed with counter-protesters, forcing the city to declare a state of emergency.

A white man named James Alex Fields Jr., who has schizophrenia and is on anti-psychotic medication, rammed his car into a group of counter-demonstrators, killing a liberal, Heather Heyer, and injuring others. Fields is in police custody and has been charged with second-degree murder.

Politicians from across the political spectrum have expressed outrage, condemning the “white supremacist” rally, and criticized President Trump for his initial response to the violence which did not label the incident as an act of terrorism, nor explicitly denounced the “white supremacists”.

This morning, speaking from the White House, President Trump condemned the Charlottesville violence, saying:

“Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the [Ku Klux Klan], neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”

That wasn’t good enough for former VPOS Joe Biden (D). Biden took issue with President Trump saying there was a “display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides.” Biden tweeted:

“There is only one side.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont), who had run as a Democrat in the presidential primaries last year, tweeted:

“The white nationalist demonstration in #Charlottesville is a reprehensible display of racism and hatred that has no place in our society.”

Sen. Chuck Shumer (D-NY) tweeted:

“March & rally in Charlottesville against everything the flag stands for. President Trump must condemn in strongest terms immediately.”

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) tweeted:

“The views fueling the spectacle in Charlottesville are repugnant. Let it only serve to unite Americans against this kind of vile bigotry.”

In a statement, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said “neo-Nazis” and white supremacist groups “are, by definition, opposed to American patriotism and the ideals that define us as a people and make our nation special.”

In a Facebook post, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) wrote:

“The Nazis, the KKK, and white supremacists are repulsive and evil, and all of us have a moral obligation to speak out against the lies, bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred that they propagate. Having watched the horrifying video of the car deliberately crashing into a crowd of protesters, I urge the Department of Justice to immediately investigate and prosecute this grotesque act of domestic terrorism.”

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) tweeted:

“Very important for the nation to hear @potus describe events in #Charlottesville for what they are, a terror attack by #whitesupremacists.”

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), the lone black Republican in the Senate, called the attack “domestic terror” and urged that it be “condemned” because “Otherwise hate is simply emboldened.”

Ronna McDaniel, the GOP chairwoman, tweeted:

“The hate & bigotry on display in is dangerous & cowardly.”
