The Trump-Ukraine whistleblower complaint looks just like ‘Steele Dossier 2.0'
[NY Post] An old adage holds that while history doesn't repeat itself, it rhymes. Not so in the case of the latest manufactured anti-Trump "scandal." The anonymous whistleblower's allegations of corruption involving President Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelensky, appear to be a note-for-note reproduction of the discredited "dossier" of 2016.

The template for a coordinated media and intelligence community hit against the president was first perfected in the dossier. British ex-spook Christopher Steele compiled the bogus allegations at the behest of the Democrats. Yet it formed the basis for secret wiretaps, human informants and a sprawling, multi-year special-counsel probe of the president.

Liberals presented Steele as an operative with impeccable credentials and a deep network of Russian sources. His reports, we were told, set a gold standard for intelligence, so much so that the FBI regularly relied on his counsel. His claims found immediate purchase in the highest circles of American journalism ‐ until they were utterly debunked along with the whole "collusion" theory.

Sound familiar?

#1 Shitshow, Part 104.

I have a strong feeling that we have entered a new era in which the Shitshow will become the new normal. I don't think we have the right political term to describe it: it's clearly not democracy.

Cacocracy?

#3 Fine. The answer going forward is this: When GOPe says "that's not us" to calls to give any dumbocrap nominee the same exact treatment as the dumbs gave Kavanaugh, the answer is "bening 'you' is not the game. Get in there and rip or go home."

#4 DNC paid someone to write it? Then got the FBI to reimburse them?
