Skullduggery

When will the immeasurably important, near universally censored, unprecedented-in-magnitude Bill Browder-Magnitsky Act scandal finally – and rightly – crash, burn and become tossed away to where it belongs – on the ash heap of history?

The Naked Hedgie

Today I break my rule to only post on my own articles at this blog. The following article by a person who preferred to remain anonymous struck me as such a disturbingly powerful punch in the gut, I decided to post it here amongst my scribblings. A different style, different imagination… stuff that makes the writer in me slightly jelaous… It is a first-person account written fom the viewpoint of Bill Browder, the protagonist of my book “Grand Deception” (which was twice stricken from Amazon by Bill Browder’s lawyers). Here goes:

Humanity Urged To Rise, Defend Assange Now.

By Jerry Alatalo

“Assassination is the extreme form of censorship.”

– GEORGE BERNARD SHAW (1856-1950) Irish dramatist

hristine Assange, WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange’s mother, has issued a challenge to peace activists, politicians and journalists around the Earth to act in defense of her son, who she considers has now entered a life-threatening situation.

Anyone who has looked into the situation concerning Julian Assange understands that the man’s unjust, irrational legal persecution of 8-years duration is based on his efforts as publisher of WikiLeaks to end criminal wars of aggression on Earth forever.

For that series of high morality, journalistic actions on his part, Julian Assange has consciously moved forward with full cognizance that severe retribution was always forthcoming and possible, even to the extent which potentially could place him in the same extremely precarious, life-and-death position that men and women of moral conscience through history willingly accepted.

Because Assange willingly accepted the severe consequences of his actions, and because he now faces manifestation of those truly profound personal risks, it becomes necessary for people around the world of varying, similar feelings about improving conditions for humanity vis-à-vis the greatest human issue of war and peace to come to his defense.

Persons aware of Assange’s deteriorating situation might consider life on Earth without people like Julian Assange, – if treated rightly, freed and willing to act for the improving of humanity now and for future generations – when deciding what to do now. Some would describe Assange as a rare genuine hero who has neither committed nor been convicted of any crimes whatsoever, and whose continued imprisonment serves as a historical case study of injustice against an individual which turns the legal foundation of 2018 civilization upside down and totally incoherent.

In other words, what is happening to truth-revealing publisher Julian Assange is simply and obviously wrong from each and every conceivable legal level. For that astonishingly distressing reason, persons in possession of good conscience aware how utterly irrational is his situation have no alternative but to rise up and act powerfully in his defense.

This includes persons of good moral conscience the world over, – because Assange’s worldview and consequent actions have consideration of bettering the health and well-being of all humanity in focus. There is nothing difficult in determining the way Julian Assange is being mistreated – and persecuted for his peace activism over the past 8-years – is simply and clearly wrong. In the same sense, men and women around the world sharing Assange’s morality-based worldview should have no difficulty determining what action(s) are now necessary … natural.

Good people will respond to Julian Assange’s life-threatening situation in a good way. Blessed are the peacemakers.

Browder-Magnitsky Scandal: Global Awareness Is Rising.

By Jerry Alatalo

Andrei Nekrasov directed possibly the most important documentary film of the 21st century.

fter Russian President Vladimir Putin mentioned Bill Browder by name during his joint press conference in Helsinki, Finland with United States President Donald Trump, interest and awareness related to the controversy surrounding Mr. Browder and Magnitsky Act legislation has grown enormously around the Earth.

One might describe what has been up until now a seemingly impenetrable wall separating the Browder-Magnitsky narrative and Russian government’s narrative – the irresolution of fact and fiction, unresolved for years since passage of U.S. Magnitsky Act laws – starting to crumble and erode, to the point of imminent collapse and overdue identification of the truth.

It is now very difficult to imagine the massive, history-making scandal enduring for much longer, or for any significant length of time. Due to rising awareness and the accompanying concern, shock and outright outrage of those who’ve learned the facts and truth about the Browder-Magnitsky fraud, one might have to travel beyond the boundaries of imagination to come up with a scenario where the deception can possibly become sustained.

The magnitude of the truth behind the Browder-Magnitsky scandal will – once the scandal becomes exposed and the “big boys” calling the shots become identified – shock the human race to a greater extent than if just hearing about your normal, run-of-the-mill, scheming, tax evading billionaire.

This is ultimately the jaw-dropping, universally-relevant story of powerful behind-the-scenes people whose intention was taking control over the assets, resources, economy and monetary systems of the largest landmass nation on Earth: – Russia.

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.
