I've checked shortly your .emacs and the installed packages, but there's
nothing obvious preventing Tramp to work.

So I recommend bisecting. Deactivate all installed packages, for example
by "chmod 000 ~/.emacs.d/elpa/*". Comment half of your .emacs, and start
Emacs loading a remote file, again.

If it works, uncomment the commented part of your .emacs, and
comment the other part. Start again.

If it doesn't work, continue bisecting the active part of your .emacs.

If there's nothing in your .emacs, activate one package after the other
in ~/.emacs.d/elpa, and check whether Tramp works.

Something like this.

Best regards, Michael.
