I’ve Been Browder’s Number One Journalist Critic for Two Decades. Here’s What President Trump Should Know About Handling Him

How long will the colossal Browder-Magnitsky Act scandal persist – further eroding U.S.-Russia relations with each passing day – before becoming exposed? For veteran investigative journalist and expert on this hugely important, controversial matter Lucy Komisar, total collapse of the disastrous fraud behind Bill Browder and the Magnitsky Act is long, long overdue.

Browder admits in U.S. Federal Court deposition that Sergei Magnitsky didn’t go to law school or have law degree, which means he lied to President Trump.

Lucy Komisar is an investigative journalist who focuses on financial and corporate corruption, particularly the use of offshore bank and corporate secrecy havens. She began investigating William Browder nearly 20 years ago when she learned of his use of an offshore company in the Isle of Man to siphon off profits from the Russian company Avisma, cheating minority investors of dividends and the Russian Treasury of taxes.

Her expose was published by 100Reporters, a highly regarded website that has received funding from the Ford and MacArthur Foundations.

Last October, 100Reporters ran her story about tax cheating in Russia by Browder’s company Hermitage and his use of Sergei Magnitsky’s death to build a campaign to block Russian attempts to…

Assange-Correa 2012 Interview Explains 2018.

By Jerry Alatalo

***

“If war no longer occupied men’s thoughts and energies, we could within a generation, put an end to all serious poverty throughout the world.”

– BERTRAND RUSSELL (1872-1970) British mathematician, philosopher

t was shortly after interviewing then Ecuador President Rafael Correa in 2012 that Julian Assange took sanctuary in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he has remained for over 6 years – the last 4 months without means of communicating via telephone or computer, and unable to see visitors besides his lawyers.

Approximately 4 months ago Assange’s phone and computer/internet access was effectively cut, along with the total restriction on visitations by close family and friends, by Correa’s successor – President Lenin Moreno, – whose actions came as a profound disappointment and source of grave concern for supporters of Assange the world over.

Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, endured framing on trumped-up charges of rape in Sweden, of which the original victim has long since stopped pursuing. Despite repeated pleas by Assange’s legal team, the Swedish prosecutor of Assange’s case waited for over 5 years before going to London and speaking to Assange personally on details of the alleged “crime”. The bizarre legal situation is clearly related to existential questions of continuance or not of in-practice free speech fundamentals in the age of the internet.

Assange’s situation is one of unprecedented political persecution orchestrated by individuals in highest level power positions, particularly led by the United States, Britain and the West, and exhibiting the objectionable, blackish flavors of Catch-22, Kafka, kangaroo court … etc..

It has now been over a year since the United Nations’ main human rights organization confirmed Assange’s innocence in a published report, stating his continued unjust detainment and neglected medical/physical conditions in confinement constituted serious human rights violations committed by British legal authorities. Despite every aspect of the “case” being in favor of freedom for Assange, he remains, without means of communicating and in virtual solitary confinement, trapped inside the Ecuadorian Embassy.

In the past few days former president of Ecuador Rafael Correa, under whose government Assange received diplomatic protection, has experienced a similar, related form of political/legal persecution, under a process becoming increasingly known as war by other means: “lawfare”. Correa’s successor Lenin Moreno has approved an arrest warrant against Correa on the trumped-up charge of being involved in a kidnapping incident which occurred around 2012.

Rafael Correa now resides in Belgium. The Ecuador judge presiding over the “case” ordered him to travel to Ecuador every two weeks or risk deeper legal problems, effectively placing impossible conditions on the former president for the purpose of forcing him to stay out of the country – with the result being the total block of Rafael Correa’s participation in Ecuadorian politics.

Going back to 2012 and listening to an interview of Rafael Correa by Julian Assange, shortly after which Assange entered the Ecuadorian Embassy, contributes to a greater understanding of the relevant facts behind the subsequent malevolent, unjust treatment of these two highly influential and respected, globally recognized leaders – one in the field of deep investigative journalism, and the other in the arena of Latin American political and socioeconomic evolution.

The Crucifixion Of Julian Assange.

By Jerry Alatalo

***

“Persecution is the first law of society because it is always easier to suppress criticism than to meet it.”

– HOWARD MUMFORD JONES (1892-1980) American writer

ournalist Julian Assange remains silenced in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London while charged with no crime. He has been a prisoner there for more than six years. One might say Julian Assange is being unjustly crucified in front of the world.

Head of the Internet Party of New Zealand Suzie Dawson’s 3-hour interview on “Ramola D Reports” at YouTube (from January) might qualify as the most important internet interview of 2018. Her support of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks made her a target of Western intelligence agencies along with Internet Party founder and fellow New Zealander Kim Dotcom – targeted with other supporters of Julian Assange around the Earth – in an irrational process where activists simply wishing to create a better world through education of citizens become treated as terrorists.

Suzie Dawson’s initial impetus for becoming more active came when she, along with millions of people around the world, became very excited about the potential good that might come from the 2011 Occupy Movement in the United States, only to find herself disappointed and wondering how such a momentous, historic event received zero coverage from corporate media outlets. She asked herself, if such a massive and thunderous event in New York City is met by total silence from mainstream media, “what else aren’t they reporting on?”

Two words are used by Ms. Lawson to describe her set of reasons for becoming more and more determined and active over the months and years since Occupy in 2011: “Righteous indignation”. Her experience and the experiences of other so-called whistleblowers such as Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning, William Binney, Mark Weibe and many more make clear the real risks involved for anyone – unless and until major positive change dependent on greater/increased awareness occurs – willing to get involved with sharing disturbing, deep, long-secreted government-military facts in the widest manner possible.

In addition to ending any further debate on the authenticity of WikiLeaks and Julian Assange through planted disinformation and smears such as “Julian Assange never mentions Israel”, “WikiLeaks denies 9/11 truth”, “Assange is a C.I.A. plant … limited hangout” etc., she also defeats through internet examples and argument the same style of smear campaign run against Edward Snowden. Suzie Dawson suggests simply going to the WikiLeaks website, typing “Israel” and “9/11” in the search box, pressing “enter”, and seeing the tens of thousands of (100% factual, verified, original) documents on Israel and 9/11 to understand the massive disinformation efforts perpetrated against Julian Assange.

“The militaries run the world … WikiLeaks supports whistleblowers facing life-and-death situations, therefore we must save Julian Assange … Julian Assange saved Edward Snowden’s life … WikiLeaks is the #1 target of Western intelligence agencies.”

***

The host of this amazing interview, “Ramola D”, deals with targeted individuals, directed energy weaponry and silent punishment of dissidents and/or whistleblowers (or random “test” subjects), a topic which has been somewhat controversial because of (thus far) limited research due to its relatively recent emergence. Suzie Dawson accepted the invitation for an interview with Ramola D because she wanted to share WikiLeaks information on the approximate 2014 introduction, global sales and marketing of directed energy and electronic weapons, classified as “electronic warfare” or “non-lethal weapons”. Ms. Dawson took this interview in part as an action to support targeted individuals who often become labeled as suffering from mental illness.

***

WikiLeaks has 10,000,000 (ten million) documents, and Suzie Dawson’s essential message is that people need only spend time at the website searching, finding and reading the massive storehouse of information “just sitting there”. She has the same message with respect to the Edward Snowden files.

Suzie Dawson and Elizabeth Vos of Disobedient Media hosted over 10-hours of interviews/statements of support during early June called “Unity4J” (Unity for Julian Assange). The organized effort was an Online Vigil calling for Julian Assange’s freedom featuring Cynthia McKinney, Caitlin Johnstone, Vivian Kubrick, Cassandra Fairbanks, William Craddick, Marc Crispin Miller, Jimmy Dore, Lee Camp, Lee Stranahan, Kevin Zeese, Mark Sleboda, Dmitri Babich, Jack Posobiec, Ciaron O’Reilley, Peter Lavelle, Kim Dotcom, Ross Cameron, Greg Barns, H.A. Goodman, Niko House, Graham Elwood … and found here.

Free Julian Assange.

9/11 Activists Urge Iran Appeal In U.S. Courts.

By Jerry Alatalo

“A wise man, therefore, proportions his belief to the evidence.”

– DAVID HUME (1711-1776) Scottish philosopher

he government of Iran has been urged to act quickly to appeal a U.S. court judgment of complicity in the events of 9/11. The urgent invitation was offered by researchers and activists who assert they hold the evidence for overturning the decision. In what most informed observers perceive as a completely irrational, nefarious and politically provocative legal move – and in a process Iran ignored and never engaged with, Iran was eventually “ordered” to pay $6 billion to surviving family members of 9/11 victims. The deadline for Iran’s appeal – should their government decide to challenge the U.S. court system – is only hours away on Wednesday May 30.

Were the Iranians to appeal the decision, long-time determined men and women activists would be feeling added encouragement – after the petition for a Grand Jury was officially served on April 10 in New York City by the Lawyers Committee for 9/11 Inquiry – that their wish for a new investigation of 9/11 will become reality. The U.S. Attorney in New York has the obligation by law to act upon the petition by the Lawyers Committee, and, should the petition be denied, the Lawyers Committee has the right of pursuing additional legal (mandamus) action making it impossible for the government to block the initiative’s moving forward – effectively forcing the U.S. Attorney to act.

Were Iran to choose the appeal process and accept the extremely strong body of research, facts and evidence of the (currently) over 40 men and women who signed the letter urging Iran to appeal, one could foresee a situation where the global spotlight on 9/11 shines at an unprecedented level since September 11, 2001. One might describe such a development as the lighting of a fuse which leads to the blowing up of the greatest military false flag deception of the 21st century, quite possibly the most decisive and consequential in world history.

While millions around the Earth wish for Iran to appeal and accept the help of researchers, academics, military experts and investigative journalists in challenging the official U.S. government narrative as put forward in the “9/11 Commission Report”, the idea of measuring the magnitude of the decision reveals that instances of such historical importance and enormity are very rare – thus making a correct assessment close to impossible.

One thing is certain. An Iranian appeal would represent and fully entail, among others, the following descriptive terms:

  • Off-the-charts
  • Paradigmatic
  • World-changing
  • Volcanic
  • Stupendous.
