U.S. Congress, Trump Ignore Truth On William Browder, Magnitsky Act.

By Jerry Alatalo

William Browder’s 7-hour deposition on April 15, 2015 uncovered many disturbing facts about his narrative of events as they relate to the death of Sergei Magnitsky, for whom the Magnitsky Act was named.

hen the truth about William Browder becomes revealed it will become necessary to rescind, abolish or otherwise get rid of the dangerous U.S.-Russia relations-destroying, lawmaking disaster titled the Magnitsky Act. That is because the Magnitsky Act, along with comparable legislation in Canada and some European Union nations, was founded upon a historic-magnitude lie about the demise of Sergei Magnitsky.

The continuing irresolution of what really happened to Sergei Magnitsky, the circumstances surrounding his incarceration and eventual tragic death, and the highly conflicting narratives coming from the Russian government and former Russian hedge fund operator William Browder has contributed to worsening relations between the governments of the U.S. and the Russian Federation. Unless and until the conflicting narratives become resolved to the point where the full and certain truth becomes revealed, a very serious, unhealthy, irrational and potentially dangerous situation between the two nuclear-armed nations will persist. The controversy must become resolved, making it necessary to finally get to the bottom of the matter, and as rapidly as possible.

The Russian government asserts William Browder is guilty of breaking Russian tax laws, that Sergei Magnitsky was Mr. Browder’s accountant and co-conspirator in tax evasion schemes, Mr. Magnitsky died of complications from pancreatitis while in prison exacerbated by poor medical care conditions in Russian jails and prisons, while placing William Browder on Interpol’s wanted list after convicting him of tax evasion in absentia, after Mr. Browder left Russia for the United Kingdom in 2005.

William Browder asserts Sergei Magnitsky was his lawyer despite – in Mr. Browder’s own words given in an April 2015 deposition lasting 7-hours in the U.S. – Mr. Magnitsky having never studied law or achieved a law degree. Mr. Browder has stated on many occasions that he chose Mr. Magnitsky as his counsel because he was one of Russia’s brightest and most able lawyers. Browder’s narrative claims Magnitsky suffered torture and was eventually murdered in prison because Magnitsky had discovered an alleged corrupt organization of conspirators including inside-the-government law enforcement and tax officials which had stolen Browder’s companies, and then criminally arranged for receipt of a fraudulent tax rebate totaling some $230 million.

The documentary film “Magnitsky Act: Behind the Scenes” by Russian director Andrei Nekrasov – ironically, who had previously been a critic of Vladimir Putin – has been effectively blacked out or censored in America and Europe. Director Nekrasov began the film project holding the belief that William Browder was telling the truth, but as Nekrasov proceeded with his research and production he came to find that Browder’s narrative was and remains a lie, the Russian government’s account of events is true, and therefore the Magnitsky Act was constructed on a false foundation.

William Browder’s 7-hour deposition from April 2015 was obtained by Lee Stranahan and Garland Nixon, co-hosts of “Fault Lines” on Sputnik media, and published/posted in 6-parts at Mr. Stranahan’s populist.tv channel on YouTube in early January 2018. Mr. Stranahan and Mr. Nixon – remarkably, a rare media co-host team with one a Donald Trump supporter and the other a Bernie Sanders supporter – have interviewed director Andrei Nekrasov and author/hedge fund manager from Monaco, Alex Krainer. Mr. Krainer is the author of “The Killing of William Browder”, where the author effectively takes apart William Browder’s highly sophisticated and manipulative deceptions. The book was originally available on Amazon before being taken down in a rare act of literary censorship, the silencing event occurring after pressure became exerted to do so by William Browder’s legal team.

It is vitally important that William F. Browder be exposed to humanity as the highest level confidence man and corrupt financier he is for the obvious reasons. It is equally vital to expose the ultra-powerful forces who’ve arranged – thus far – to both enable his continuing deception and, more importantly, the continued existence of the ill-founded, massively unjust, and extremely dangerous Magnitsky Act.

Exposing the Real Deep State

Tony Cartalucci contends the idea that President Donald Trump and his administration are somehow waging war against America’s “Deep State” is a delusion.

“Ultimately, sidestepping the crass, unsophisticated but highly provocative and alluring strategy of tension created around the Trump administration and the alleged “deep state” it is supposedly fighting, is essential in identifying and confronting the real deep state that is orchestrating both sides of this charade.”

Uprootedpalestinians's Blog

March 13, 2017 (Tony Cartalucci – NEO) – Many both within and beyond America’s borders labor under the delusion that US policy is determined by the nation’s elected representatives amid a careful balancing act between the judicial, legislative, and executive branches of government. In reality, the inner workings of US policy resemble nothing of the sort.

In reality, an unelected deep state controls the United States, its resources, government, and people. However, the term “deep state” has been overused and intentionally abused, particularly since the election of US President Donald Trump in an effort to continue concealing the real deep state and divert public attention away from what is becoming an increasingly obvious continuity of agenda from one presidency to the next.

Uncovering and understanding the nature of the real deep state is in fact elementary, but essential in understanding the genesis and perpetuation of US policy. It…

Standing Rock Smoke Signals.

By Jerry Alatalo

Header8Alphabet Veterans for Peace has sent out the call to its membership across the United States to support the water protection efforts at Standing Rock, North Dakota. Thousands of men and women veterans from the United States Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines and Navy have already arrived or are on their way to the camp, where some 11-12,000 people of all races have gathered to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Arrival of the veterans has created in the minds of many images recalling the atrocities of Wounded Knee where hundreds of innocent Native Americans became victims of mass murder by U.S. government/military forces – leading to calls for restraint and caution to avoid any repeat of that or other historic tragedies. The most remarkable and disturbing aspect of the months-long events in Standing Rock has been the excessive use of violence against those opposing the pipeline’s construction, with opposition efforts carried out using Gandhian-style peaceful protest – prayers, unified purpose, wisdom, and non-violent civil disobedience.

The land on which the thousands protesting the pipeline have gathered was promised by treaties made with the U.S. government in the 1800’s to the Lakota Sioux/Standing Rock tribe. The specific language in those treaties said, “for as long as the sun shines…”. The U.S. Congress in 1954, depending on one’s interpretation, either took possession of the land beneath the camp by “eminent domain” or stole it, with the intended purpose of flooding it as part of a hydroelectric dam project. The dam project never materialized.

The standoff will have to become resolved in the courts, and the water protectors are working to avoid unnecessary violence if law enforcement personnel receive the orders on December 6 to clear the camp and its thousands of residents – now, including a large contingent of U.S. military veterans standing in solidarity for support of the environment, morality and legal justice.

While those who call for the pipeline’s construction have told the American people the project will benefit “all” as part of the nation’s drive toward “energy independence”, apparently the project, if completed, would result in 100% of the fossil fuels transported through those pipes being exported to foreign countries for profit. Millions of taxpayer dollars are being spent with law enforcement operations to clear the way for private investors to profit, jeopardizing the environment in the process – in particular the drinking water for millions of citizens whose sole source is the Missouri River and/or massive Oglala Aquifer.

U.S. Marine Corps-Korean War veteran and member of the Lakota Sioux tribe, 80-year old Buzz Nelson, has been closely associated with events at Standing Rock; his grandson is the chairman of the Standing Rock tribe, David Archambault. He recently sat down for an interview with fellow Marine Dan Shea, veteran of the Vietnam War, to share thoughts, concerns, and reasons for optimism surrounding the historic events in North Dakota.

The Collateral Consequences Of Hillary Clinton.

By Jerry Alatalo

“In public life, instead of modesty, incorruptibility, and honesty – shamefulness, bribery and rapacity hold sway.”

-SALLUST (86-34 B.C.) Roman historian

aaa-9Alphabet The Wall Street documentary expose’, “The Veneer of Justice in the Kingdom of Crime”, was written, produced and directed by Mr. John Titus. In the film he makes a strong case that the Obama administration Justice Department under Attorney General Eric Holder (the top law enforcement official in the United States), Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer and others from the department protected executives of Wall Street global giant Goldman Sachs from prosecution for major financial fraud – and prison.

For those men and women who view the film, it should become readily apparent the real reasons for Hillary Clinton’s firm resolve and still-persisting refusal to show the American people the transcripts of her three (3) $225,000 speeches to Goldman Sachs. At the same time, the level of concern over Ms. Clinton’s nondisclosure and total lack of transparency should rise exponentially, in a natural response seeing she’s, thus far, the favorite to become the next President of the United States.

Unfortunately, Mr. Titus’ outstanding film is a documentary based on facts – and not a work of fiction. The American people are reasonable in expecting a President Hillary Clinton to appoint the same caliber of legal minds to her Justice Department as Barack Obama, illustrated by Clinton campaign advertisements featuring Eric Holder giving her his “strong” endorsement. That Mr. Holder, Mr. Breuer and other Obama Justice Department attorneys now work at the Wall Street law firm Covington & Burling representing Goldman Sachs and other major “too big to fail/jail” banks should cause Americans to stop and think.

Americans might think again about Hillary Clinton, because in the eight years of Obama’s administration not one Wall Street executive went to jail, despite what many expert observers have concluded was major, epidemic financial fraud committed in the years leading up to the economic crash of 2007-8. The people of Britain recently voted to leave the European Union in what everyone has come to know as the “Brexit”. Considering Ms. Clinton’s unyielding secrecy over her $225,000 Goldman Sachs speeches combined with the film’s Goldman Sachs-specific revelations as associated with Obama’s Justice Department officials, the American people might start looking around for the nearest “Clexit” (Clinton exit).

At first glance, an analogy of “Brexit” and “Clexit” might seem somewhat silly or even ridiculous. But after further thought, both the British and Americans share the challenge of dealing with a handful of extremely wealthy, politically connected people operating from positions of massive centralized power, able to completely escape accountability from constraining legal or democratic means. In a real sense, Americans’ electing Ms. Clinton President of the United States is the precise opposite of Brits’ voting to leave the European Union – further concentration of power versus decentralization.

As Mr. Titus’ film points out, Eric Holder, Lanny Breuer and their Justice Department colleagues arranged for Goldman Sachs to commit crimes with impunity, conjuring up the excuse of sparing employees, the U.S. and world economy, etc. from negative “collateral consequences”. Holder and Breuer simply made up the “collateral consequences” argument to protect their friends at Goldman Sachs from going to prison.

However, the negative collateral (parallel) consequences of a Hillary Clinton presidency would be all too real, multi-faceted – including matters of war and peace, and cause for great concern internationally – only possible through attainment of one of the most powerful positions on Earth.
