Just days before the election, but certainly still dismissed from coverage by the very networks that for years peddled the hoax, the final nail has gone into the Steele dossier coffin.
Already widely debunked, including by no less than Special Counsel Robert Mueller who the Steele dossier advocates put all their hopes in only for their delusion to eventually be shattered, a key source for many of its claims has been revealed by The Wall Street Journal to be a disgruntled Russian PR executive living in Cyprus.
40-year old Olga Galkina “stood as the dossier’s most important contributor,” WSJ reported, after she was tapped by her old school friend and Steele’s employee, Igor Danchenko, to dig up dirt of Trump’s dealings in Russia using the “vast network of people” from her various jobs in and out of the public sector.
Described as a public-relations executive, she “fed notes” to Danchenko for the dossier, including many of its most central claims. And of course behind all of this was British spy Christopher Steele, himself paid by Fusion GPS, and behind this the DNC itself.
They knew each other since the 8th grade in Perm, as the WSJ details:
Mr. Danchenko told the FBI that a school friend, referred to in heavily redacted FBI notes as “Source 3,” had provided him with information for Mr. Steele “across a wide range of topics,” and stood as the dossier’s most important contributor. The former high-ranking U.S. national-security official told The Wall Street Journal that the source in question was Ms. Galkina.
It was Galkina who claimed Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen secretly contacted Russian intelligence in Prague to establish compensation for DNC hackers in the summer of 2016. Crucially she had fed Steele’s team the name of her own Cyprus-based employer Webzilla as being behind the hack under company owner Aleksej Gubarev.
So the Steele Dossier that kicked off 4 years of Russiagate hysteria among the US ruling class was cooked up by two Russian alcoholics from Perm. “Gogolesque” does not begin to describe the grotesque credulity & stupidity of the American elites.https://t.co/LynUT8KLWx

At the very time Galkina was feeding Danchenko the information she was locked in an ugly dispute with her employer (the parent company of Webzilla) which she was intent on taking down. A mere eight months after starting at Webzilla in Cyprus, the company was forced to contact Cypriot police over her erratic and even dangerous behavior, which included frequently showing up to work late and drunk while making threats.
The WSJ notes that its reporters have reviewed the police statement, which revealed further: “The manager told police that an acquaintance of Ms. Galkina had told him he would face deep trouble, including possible death, unless he paid €10,000 ($11,740) in compensation, according to the statement, which was confirmed by a Cypriot official and a person who attended its recording.”
It is here that the report emphasizes the crucial timeline:
In November 2016, Ms. Galkina was fired. Weeks later, she implicated Webzilla and Mr. Gubarev in the hacking, according to people familiar with the matter.
Thus the “damning” information on Trump and associates which triggered a special counsel investigation and what was literally multiple years of 24/7 media Russiagate hysteria originated with a deeply disgruntled executive that was let go after a lengthy and messy fight that even saw local police get involved at one point.
Oh shit, I KNOW the girl WSJ just named as the source of Steele dossier. (And yeah, she’s probably made the whole thing up)

If you have five minutes for an illustration on how disinformation actually works, read this March, 2017 Vanity Fair article on Steele’s sources and compare to what we now know.
Here’s the punchline:
By 2018 polls showed that a whopping over 80% of Democrats bought into the key claims that collectively made up ‘Russiagate’. The Steele Dossier was of course the major driver that kicked it all off.
In light of the revelation, journalist Mark Ames put it best…
“So the Steele Dossier that kicked off 4 years of Russiagate hysteria among the US ruling class was cooked up by two Russian alcoholics from Perm. Gogolesque does not begin to describe the grotesque credulity & stupidity of the American elites.”
Looks like we’re up to about 73 or 74 “key sources” for “central claims” of the dossier.
Don’t vote, food stampers. Putin will steal this elections anyway.
When you get your soundbite for the week, do your paymasters ever realise that they are still using the soundbites from the last century?
Give that woman a foodstamp!
Off topic, but, well, didn’t the Dems fund the ‘Steele Dossier’?
The following made me laugh. Joe Biden Presidential Tour Bus, followed by a Trump supporter, driving a hearse, with the following written all over the hearse:
• “Collecting Democrat votes one dead stiff at a time.”
• “Dig ’em Deeper, Bury ’em Cheaper Funeral Parlor”
• “Clinton Foundation Suicide Limo Service – 1-800-HANG-URSELF”
• “Official Democrat Cemetery Vote Collector”
Video of it happening. So love satire. Nice one for Halloween.
The driver of the hearse deserves an accolade for truly imaginative trolling of Sleepy Joe :)
The Twitter feed is not working, but, got it from this Breit Bart article. Still cracked up laughing, as it reminds me of Del Boy and Rodney, plus, the humour so suits my personality.
Biden Bus Runs Red Light To Flee Pro Trump Democrat Cemetery Vote Collector Hearse
Hope the driver was dressed up in his Halloween best, such as wearing a Hilary Mask.
Oooh, you are so cruel, AM.
Seriously cannot stop laughing, just thinking about it. You see on the tv, the actor getting into the cab and ordering it to follow that car, but, a hearse, chasing a bus, with some haunting one liner’s – so reminds me of when you used to be able to laugh.
If you were to have a night on the town, would you prefer to be joined by a Trump supporter, with a sense of humour or a Biden Karen, with Woke ideology for entertainment?
If only the US did Presidential Elections, Russian style, you might get 18 candidates to choose from and one just might be decent and peace loving. However, a miracle to many, I guess.
So that would be a cross between Benny Hill & Monty Python, would it? Hmmm, how about Trump AND Nigel? Beats that devilish freak show of shitlery & biden (haven’t thought up a good enough name for him).
OMG, could you imagine it – the love child of Benny Hill and Monty Python? Or even Dick Emery, as I could so see him driving the hearse and God, aka Mandy does Hilary ha-ha.
With regards Joe Biden, well, besides seriously giving me the creeps, do you remember the times of comedies and con artists, including Adam West TV version of Batman and the Joker (yeah, ok not a comedy), how all the con artists had that Biden grin?
The Joker – Batman TV Series.
After chuckling away at the hearse, I ruined it with a visit to the DM. ‘Skripals’ Johnson, relishing the thought at putting us back into lockdown, for at least 4 weeks, to save Santa. No doubt, we will have ‘happy clappy Thursdays to clap for Santa’. What the heck is he trying to do, we get out of the EU, in a few weeks, thank goodness, but, he has upset the nations that could offer support, like Russia and China. Then he has shutdown the economy, so there is no way the majority of the businesses will come out of it, plus, the culling by shutting down healthcare and relying on suicide and undiagnosed terminal illnesses, to take us out. No science, just what Gates and friends demand.
Over in France, Maccron, who normally is quite nice to his dinghy tourists, has gone out of his way to upset them. All staged as they arrive, with the scripts, that the same crowd Maccron hangs out with, provide and fund. It is seriously staged. The attacker gets into France on a dinghy via Italy and first thing he does is travel to the other side of France, to try and behead mothers with children. Perfect for the media, who have already got the script up and running. With riots to follow, around the same time all hell is going to break loose, following the US elections.
I wonder what else is planned for November, whilst the media will be kept busy and they can hide bad news?
November, why I have the very person! Meet Guy Fawkes! The only Joker I remember AM was from the 60s Batman. (After that, I was out of England for a while).
That is the one I am talking about. The only other one I took any notice of, was Jack Nicholson. Seems to be a new Batman and film out every year, repeating the same old story.
Memories of yesterday and a little light relief, you may or may not like.
Stanley Baxter the (S)Tory of Oz
Sorry AM, I don’t even know him (my brother prob would). Connery now dead, there’s a lot more to James Bond that what the film industry would have us (wrongly) believe…
Don’t apologise. Not a fan of Connery. Guess it was owing to wanting Scottish Independence, when he was living in the Bahamas, and knocking his first wife around, that turned me against him. Do like the work of Ian Fleming though.
Forgot Joker image. Spot the difference.
God, ended up a typo error for mask, I think. Dick Emery as Mandy or the Vicar? and the Clinton mask.
AM, some things are best forgotten.
Biden or 60s Batman?
Um, how about both?
No problems, but, do Boden so reminds me of those characters with long faces, evil grins and black personalities.
Talking of classic comedy, which we were not, DM is running a story on Stanley Baxter. I was more into a Stanley Baxter Christmas Classic than Morecambe and Wise. Him and Dick Emery, I think we’re my all-time favs. Met Les Dawson, owing to work and he was lovely. Plus, David Jason, when he was getting into Del Boy character. He was walking down the street, wearing a fur coat and with a very camp, Del Boy style walk. He was lovely, smiled and waved, without me acknowledging him, I was just happily walking by, on the other side of the street and simply smiled back.
I don’t know Baxter but do know M&W. Do know about Del Boy. So there’s a gap in my knowledge of Brit tv, made worse by the fact that over the past 11+ years I don’t watch tv. Similarly with films, don’t watch them anymore (unless – but rarely – it’s non-fiction.)
Stanley Baxter made wonderful Xmas and Easter Specials, past 9 O’Clock, owing to adult humour. He never went courting attention for PR, but, kept himself private. So different to the so called entertainers of today. You would not catch him on Celebrity Reality Shows either, even if they had been around. Nicely old school and politely out of order humour.
Don’t worry I have not got stalker syndrome. Just wondered if you had seen the following. I thought I would check out if there was any new on Reiner Fuellmich class court action and found the following:
Dr. Reiner Fuellmich to sue key players.
If you have not yet seen the video, CLICK HERE and watch immediately! Dr. Reiner Fuellmich is not getting the media attention he deserves (obviously), and his videos are often pulled from YouTube. It’s up to people like us to spread the message. This NEEDS to spread! Be vigilant. If YouTube continues to pull his content and you find broken links, use this Bitchute Link.
Thank you Peter from Denmark for providing the following information!
Peter from Denmark writes:
These are the three main promoters of the “corona panic” that are being sued, and these are the same people that our governments are basing their lockdown on:
Dr Christian Drosten, virologist and Director of the Institute at Charité Hospital in Berlin — Drosten is the inventor of the PCR test. PCR tests are not approved for diagnostic purposes, as is correctly noted on leaflets coming with these tests. Even the United States CDC agrees with this. Even Drosten himself declared in an interview in 2014, that these PCR tests are so highly sensitive that even very healthy and non-infectious people may test positive. Dr Yeadon in his piece: ‘Lies, Damned Lies and Health Statistics – the Deadly Danger of False Positives’ explains the complete unsuitability of the test for the detection of infectious diseases, covid 19 has tested positive in goats, sheep, papayas and even chicken wings. Also note that previously, during the swine flu in 2009 Drosten was one of those who stirred up panic in the population; repeating over and over again that the swine flu would claim many hundreds of thousands, even millions of deaths, all over the world. This panic-inducing prognosis proved to be catastrophically false.
Mr Tedros Adhanom, head of the World Health Organisation or WHO – Drosten used the PCR test, to test i Wuhan China, it came positive, this was enough for WHO to sound the pandemic alarm and to recommend the worldwide use of the Drosten PCR test for the detection of infections. Note also that previously, 12 years earlier the WHO changed the definition of “pandemic” (to “just a worldwide disease”, which not necessarily led to many serious illnesses and deaths) and that due to this change was able to declare the swine flu pandemic in 2009, with the result that vaccines were produced and sold worldwide. The panic prognosis of WHO proved to be catastrophically false.
Mr Lothar Wieler, veterinarian and head of the German equivalent of the CDC, the RKI – Mr Wieler wrote”the “panic paper”, that was leaked which was written by the German Department of the Interior. Its classified content shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that in fact the population was deliberately driven to panic by politicians and mainstream media. The accompanying irresponsible statements of the head of the RKI, remember the CDC, Mr Wieler who repeatedly and excitedly announced that the corona measures must be followed unconditionally by the population, without them asking any question shows that he followed the script verbatim. In his public statements he kept announcing that the situation was very grave and threatening although the figures compiled by his own institute proved the exact opposite.
No AM, I only saw the first video.
The Vanity Fair article really went fanboy on Christopher Steele. Typical Brit. Great hair, bad teeth.
Regarding Mr. Danchenko and Ms. Galkina, neither of them are high level govt officials and Bellingcat hasn’t even claimed that they are FSB agents yet. So why are Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and the rest of the Republicans screeching that this was a Russian plot to undermine Trump?
Answer: If they keep saying this then that proves that they are dishonest (but we already know that don’t we).
Sounds good enough for me!
I remember reading that article and one of the best published. Thanks for the reminder. If I remember correctly, there was also an interesting story about Steele, over in the New Yorker, links for both below:
How the ex-spy tried to warn the world about Trump’s ties to Russia. By Jane Mayer – March 5, 2018
These shits eventually managed to put a couple of Russians in, they could not help but blame the Russians anyway, if this is not mental illness, lack of imagination and total incompetence I don’t know what else it could be.
This never can happen in Russia, Assads and Belarus and anywhere else, where only one oppinion is allowed.
