Chapeau, Mr Browder! Hats off for this incredible man. Last month, he succeeded in stopping a film screening in the European parliament and took off a few articles from American web sites. This week, he turned the only US screening of a film critical to his version of events into a ruckus. No freedom of speech for his enemies! His lawyers prowl around and issue summons to whoever digs in his sordid affairs. His hacks re-wrote his Wikipedia entry, expunging even discussions of the topic: despite hundreds of edits, nothing survived but the official version. Only a few powerful men succeed purifying their record to such an extent. Still, good fortune (a notoriously flighty lady) is about to desert Mr Browder.

Who is this extremely influential man? A businessman, a politician, a spy? The American-born Jewish tycoon William Browder, says The Jewish Chronicle, considers himself Putin’s Number One enemy. For him, Putin is “no friend of the Jews”, “cold-blooded killer” and even “criminal dictator who is not too different from Hitler, Mussolini or Gadhafi”. More to a point, Browder is the man who contributed most to the new cold war between the West and Russia. The roots were there, still he made them blossom. If the US and Russia haven’t yet exchanged nuclear salvos, do not blame Browder: he tried. For a valid reason, too: he was hit by cruel Hitler-like Mr Putin into his most susceptible spot, namely his pocket. Or was there even a better reason?

Browder, a grandson of the US Communist leader, came to Russia at its weakest point after the Soviet collapse, and grabbed an enormous fortune by opaque financial transactions. Such fortunes are not amassed by the pure of spirit. He was a ruthless man who did as much as any oligarch to enrich himself.

Eventually he ran afoul of Mr Putin, who was (and is) very tolerant of oligarchs as long as they play by the rules. The oligarchs would not be oligarchs if they would found that an easy condition. Some of them tried to fight back: Khodorkovsky landed in jail, Berezovsky and Gusinsky went to exile. Browder had a special position: he was the only Jewish oligarch in Russia who never bothered to acquire the Russian citizenship. He was barred from returning to Russia, and his companies were audited and found wanting.

As you’d expect, huge tax evasion was discovered. Browder thought that as long as he sucked up to Putin, he’d get away with bloody murder, let alone tax evasion. He was mistaken. Putin is nobody’s fool. Flatterers do not get a free ride in Putin’s Russia. And Browder became too big for his boots.

It turned out that he did two unforgivable things. Russians were afraid the foreigners would buy all their assets for a song, using favourable exchange rates and lack of native capital, as had happened in the Baltic states and other ex-Communist East European countries. In order to avoid that, shares of Russian blue-chip companies (Gazprom and suchlike) were traded among Russian citizens only. Foreigners had to pay much more. Browder bought many such shares via Russian frontmen, and he was close to getting control over Russian oil and gas. Putin suspected that he had acted in the interests of big foreign oil companies, trying to repeat the feat of Mr Khodorkovsky.

His second mistake was being too greedy. Russian taxation is very low; but Browder did not want to pay even this low tax. He hired Mr Magnitsky, an experienced auditor, who used loopholes in the Russian tax code in order to avoid taxes altogether. Magnitsky established dummy companies based in tax-free zones of Russia, such as pastoral Kalmykia, small, Buddhist, and autonomous. Their tax-free status had been granted in order to improve their economy and reduce unemployment; however, Browder’s companies did not contribute to economy and did not employ people; they were paper dummies swiftly bankrupted by the owner.

Another Magnitsky trick was to form companies fronted by handicapped people who were also freed from paying tax. In the film, some of these persons, often illiterate and of limited intelligence, told the filmmaker of signing papers they could not read and of being paid a little money for the millions passing through their account.

(Mr Browder does not deny these accusations; he says there is nothing criminal in trying to avoid taxes. You can read about Browder and Magnitsky tricks here and here, and learn of the ways they attacked companies using minority shareholders and many other neat schemes.)

Eventually Magnitsky’s schemes were discovered and he was arrested. Ten months later, in 2009, he died in jail. By that time, his patron Mr Browder was abroad, and he began his campaign against Russia hoping to regain his lost assets. He claimed Mr Magnitsky had been his lawyer, who discovered misdeeds and the outright thievery of government officials, and was imprisoned and tortured to death for this discovery.

The US Congress rushed in the Magnitsky Act, the first salvo of the Cold War Two. By this act, any Russian person could be found responsible for Mr Magnitsky’s untimely death and for misappropriation of Browder’s assets. His properties could be seized, bank accounts frozen – without any legal process or representation. This act upset the Russians, who allegedly had kept a cool $500 billion in the Western banks, so tit for tat started, and it goes to this very day.

The actual effect of the Magnitsky Act was minimal: some twenty million dollars frozen and a few dozen not-very-important people were barred from visiting the US. Its psychological effect was much greater: the Russian elite realised that they could lose their money and houses anytime – not in godless Putin’s Russia, but in the free West, where they had preferred to look for refuge. The Magnitsky Act paved the road to the Cyprus confiscation of Russian deposits, to post-Crimean sanctions and to a full-fledged Cold War.

ORDER IT NOW

This was painful for Russia, as the first adolescent disillusionment in its love affair with the West, and rather healthy, in my view. A spot of cold war (very cold, plenty of ice please) is good for ordinary people, while its opposite, a Russian-American alliance, is good for the elites. The worst times for ordinary Russian people were 1988-2001, when Russians were in love with the US. The oligarchs stole everything there was to steal and sold it to the West for pennies. They bought villas in Florida while Russia fell apart. That was bad time for everybody: the US invaded Panama and Afghanistan unopposed, Iraq was sanctioned to death, Yugoslavia was bombed and broken to pieces.

As the Cold War came back, some normalcy was restored: the Russians stopped the US from destroying Syria, and Russian officials learned to love Sochi instead of Miami. For this reason alone, Browder can be counted as a part of the power which eternally wills evil and eternally works good. The Russian government, however, did not enjoy the cold shower.

The Russians denied any wrongdoing or even political reasons for dealing with Browder. They say Magnitsky was not a lawyer, just an auditor and a tax code expert. They say that he was arrested and tried for his tax avoidance schemes, and he died of natural causes while in jail. Nobody listened to them, until they demanded that Browder testify under oath. He refused. For two years lawyers tried to give him a summons, but he was a quick runner. There are funny videos showing Browder running away from summons.

Some good sense began to seep into American minds. The New Republic wondered: if Browder was indeed the victim of persecution in Russia and had enlisted the U.S. justice system to right the balance, why was he so reluctant to offer his sworn testimony in an American courtroom?

Enter Mr Andrey Nekrasov, a Russian dissident filmmaker. He made a few films considered to be highly critical of Russian government. He alleged the FSB blew up houses in Moscow in order to justify the Chechnya war. He condemned the Russian war against Georgia in 2008, and had been given a medal by Georgian authorities. He did not doubt the official Western version of Browder-Magnitsky affair, and decided to make a film about the noble American businessman and the brave Russian lawyer fighting for human rights. The European organisations and parliamentarians provided the budget for the film. They also expected the film to denounce Putin and glorify Magnitsky, the martyr.

However, while making the film, Mr Nekrasov had his Road to Damascus moment. He realised that the whole narrative was hinging on the unsubstantiated words of Mr Browder. After painstaking research, he came to some totally different conclusions, and in his version, Browder was a cheat who run afoul of law, while Magnitsky was his sidekick in those crimes.

Nekrasov discovered an interview Magnitsky gave in his jail. In this interview, the accountant said he was afraid Browder would kill him to prevent him from denouncing Browder, and would make him his scapegoat. It turned out Browder tried to bribe the journalist who made the interview to have these words expunged. Browder was the main beneficiary of the accountant’s death, realised Nekrasov, while his investigators were satisfied with Magnitsky’s collaboration with them.

Nekrasov could not find any evidence that Magnitsky tried to investigate the misdeeds of government officials. He was too busy covering his own tax evasion. And instead of fitting his preconceived notions, Nekrasov made the film about what he learned. (Here are some details of Nekrasov’s film)

While the screening in the EU Parliament was been stopped by the powerful Mr Browder, in Washington DC the men are made of sterner stuff. Despite Browder’s threats the film was screened, presented by the best contemporary American investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, who is 80 if a day, and still going strong. One has to recognise that the US is second to none for freedom of speech on the globe.

What makes Browder so powerful? He invests in politicians. This is probably a uniquely Jewish quality: Jews outspend everybody in contributions to political figures. The Arabs will spend more on horses and jets, the Russians prefer real estate, the Jews like politicians. The Russian NTV channel reported that Browder lavishly financed the US lawmakers. Here they present alleged evidence of money transfers: some hundred thousand dollars was given by Browder’s structures officially to the senators and congressmen in order to promote the Magnitsky Act.

Much bigger sums were transferred via good services of Brothers Ziff, mega-rich Jewish American businessmen, said the researchers in two articles published on the Veteran News Network and in The Huffington Post.

These two articles were taken off the sites very fast under pressure of Browder’s lawyers, but they are available in the cache. They disclose the chief beneficiary of Browder’s generosity. This is Senator Ben Cardin, a Democrat from Maryland. He was the engine behind Magnitsky Act legislation to such an extent that the Act has been often called the Cardin List. Cardin is a fervent supporter of Hillary Clinton, also a cold warrior of good standing. More to a point, Cardin is a prominent member of Israel Lobby.

Browder affair is a heady upper-class Jewish cocktail of money, spies, politicians and international crime. Almost all involved figures appear to be Jewish, not only Browder, Brothers Ziff and Ben Cardin. Even his enemy, the beneficiary of the scam that (according to Browder) took over his Russian assets is another Jewish businessman Dennis Katsiv (he had been partly exonerated by a New York court as is well described in this thoughtful piece).

Browder began his way to riches under the patronage of a very rich and very crooked Robert Maxwell, a Czech-born Jewish businessman who assumed a Scots name. Maxwell stole a few million dollars from his company pension fund before dying in mysterious circumstances on board of his yacht in the Atlantic. It was claimed by a member of Israeli Military Intelligence, Ari Ben Menashe, that Maxwell had been a Mossad agent for years, and he also said Maxwell tipped the Israelis about Israeli whistle-blower Mordecai Vanunu. Vanunu was kidnapped and spent many years in Israeli jails.

Geoffrey Goodman wrote Maxwell “was almost certainly being used as – and using himself as – a two-way intelligence conduit [between East and West]. This arrangement included passing intelligence to the Israeli secret forces with whom he became increasingly involved towards the end of his life.”

ORDER IT NOW

After Maxwell, Browder switched allegiance to Edmond Safra, a very rich Jewish banker of Lebanese origin, who also played East vs West. Safra provided him with working capital for his investment fund. Safra’s bank has been the unlikely place where the IMF loan of four billion dollars to Russia had been transferred—and disappeared. The Russian authorities say that Browder has been involved in this “crime of the century,” next to Safra. The banker’s name has been connected to Mossad: increasingly fearful for his life, Safra surrounded himself by Mossad-trained gunmen. This did not help him: he died a horrible death in his bathroom when his villa was torched by one of the guards.

The third Jewish oligarch on Browder’s way was Boris Berezovsky, the king-maker of Yeltsin’s Russia. He also died in his bathroom (which seems to be a constant feature); apparently he committed suicide. Berezovsky had been a politically active man; he supported every anti-Putin force in Russia. However, a few months before his death, he asked for permission to return to Russia, and some negotiations went on between him and Russian authorities.

His chief of security Sergey Sokolov came to Russia and purportedly brought with him some documents his late master prepared for his return. These documents allege that Browder had been an agent of Western intelligence services, of the CIA to begin with, and of MI6 in following years. He was given a code name Solomon, as he worked for Salomon Brothers. His financial activity was just a cover for his true intentions, that is to collect political and economic data on Russia, and to carry out economic war on Russia. This revelation has been made in the Russia-1 TV channel documentary Browder Effect, (broadcasted 13.04.2016), asserting that Browder was not after money at all, and his activities in Russia, beside being very profitable, had a political angle.

The documents had been doubted for some linguistic reasons discussed by Gilbert Doctorow who comes to a reasonable conclusion: “Bill Browder[‘s]… intensity and the time he was devoting to anti-Russian sanctions in Europe was in no way comparable to the behaviour of a top level international businessman. It was clear to me that some other game was in play. But at the time, no one could stand up and suggest the man was a fraud, an operative of the intelligence agencies. Whatever the final verdict may be on the documents presented by the film “The Browder Effect,” it raises questions about Browder that should have been asked years ago in mainstream Western media if journalists were paying attention. Yevgeny Popov deserves credit for highlighting those questions, even if his documents demand further investigation before we come to definitive answers”.

We do not know whether Browder is, or had been, a spy. This should not surprise us, as he was closely connected to Maxwell, Safra and Berezovsky, the financiers with strong ties in the intelligence community.

Perhaps he outlived his usefulness, Mr Browder did. He started the Cold war, now is the time to keep it in its healthy limits and to avoid a nuclear disaster or rapid armaments race. This is the task we may hope will be entertained by the next US President, Mr Donald Trump.

    That is very true. For that reason, many smart, moral Jews resisted and still resist the (atheist) Zionist project in Palestine as you may already know. Of course, they were and are sidelined.

    I'm posting this comment as a reply to the very first comment to this piece because, if I posted it as an independent comment it would ***only*** appear as comment number 153, and thus less likely to be noticed than a reply to the very first comment to the original publication, which first appeared in June of 2016.

    I find it astonishing -- okay, maybe just surprising -- that Browder has succeeded in suppressing the documentary made by Nekrasov. A single copy of that video documentary, converted to digital form and mounted on the internet would be unstoppable.

    I get all my video media by downloading from BitTorrent sites. Once something is loaded in BitTorrent form, it's on the internet forever. While it is not impossible to attack a BitTorrent distribution, it is nevertheless very difficult -- nearly impossible -- to succeed in expunging anything mounted on this distributed file-sharing vehicle. This distributed application file-sharing vehicle -- which by the way is what enables the newly emerging and unstoppable cryptocurrency phenomenon -- stores its files, chopped into little pieces, on thousands of personal computers distributed across the planet. Taking anything down that is mounted on the internet in this way is impossible short of shutting down the entire internet. Not gonna happen.

    Now mounting the Browder video on the BitTorrent system does not provide a mechanism for compensating the owner/creator of the video. That said, if it is done in the public interest, there is nothing stopping someone from creating a crowdfunding effort to pay the author and the distributor for their efforts.

    So, if anyone can offer a reason why this video is not yet available free and online, I'd like to hear it, because it puzzles me that it hasn't yet happened.

    his hacks re-wrote his Wikipedia entry, expunging even discussions of the topic

    Wikipedia talk pages are regularly archived so that only active discussions are on the main talk page. “Expunged” implies they were deleted and not available. In fact, the old talk pages for the article are all available one click away from the main talk page.

    Here, for example, is a much longer archived talk page for Browder:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Bill_Browder&oldid=544048631

    Likewise, there seems to be no censorship of the article. Rather, like most wikipedia articles, over the years the article has slowly grown in length. The only substantial deletion from the article in the past 6 years was the recent deletion of a 4,000 word quotation from a source article. Such very long quotations are usually copyright violations and in any case are not good wikipedia style.

    In short, both your claim of wikipedia censorship and wikipedia “expunging” content are completely wrong.

    The wikipedia editor who made the deletion and is presumably the “hack” is an extremely prolific editor who has made more than 500 wikipedia edits in the past month and many thousands of edits since 2009, the first being on the articles “Protein folding” and “Chloride peroxidase.”

    Now it is possible Browder has a long-time wikipedia super-editor as one of his “hacks,” but if you are going to libel a person like this, some evidence should be presented.

    I have written this before, but most US citizens think that CIA is a big bureaucracy which does secret stuff. Although this is partially true, there are also free-wheeling agents who work primarily for their own private or group interest (getting rich) and hopefully also in the Israeli and/or US national interest. Like in everything else, intelligence agencies are organised in a packing order: Mossad at the top, CIA working for Mossad, MI6 and BND working for CIA and so on. But most of the time these agencies both cooperate and compete and sometimes shaft each other (e.g. 911), from project to project.

    One small complaint within a great article. Israel says:

    One has to recognise that the US is second to none for freedom of speech on the globe.

    This is a wrong interpretation of what transpired. There are two reasons why the documentary could have been shown in the US but not in EU:
    1) EU is a lower level servant of the state of Israel than the US, and
    2) EU has the most draconian libel laws (especially UK), which make stating anything about a lawyered person prepared for lawfare too risky. Nothing to do with freedom of speech.

    The most interesting, previously unknown, detail to me in this article was that Browder’s grandfather was the leader of the US Communist Party. This underlines Communism as primarily a Jewish movement world-wide.

    Could Mr. Browder hope for a better end of life than Maxwell, Safra and Berezovsky? And what would be the fate of Mr. Cardin, the famous congressional prostitute? http://www.councilforthenationalinterest.org/new/?p=3742#.V2fRqzc5FCo

    "Israel’s Agent of Influence: Senator Ben Cardin shows how it’s done:"

    "So who does Cardin actually represent? I would suggest that he fits the mold of the classic agent of influence in that his allegiance to the United States is constrained by his greater loyalty to a foreign nation."

    Dear Kiza, you provide an explanation, but the fact remains there: the US has more freedom of speech. Not as much as we would like, but indeed more than Europe, as you yourself explained. Still, David Duke had a spell (a year?) in jail for some strange reason.

    “…Browder was not after money at all…” Uh, no. Browder was notorious for his greed and obsession with money. This is someone who had a program that calculated his personal net worth online and would check it no less than every half hour. Think Gordon Gekko but too cheap to even buy a decent suit. While there may have been some intelligence connections somewhere along the way, as the article states, he went political only when his honey pot was removed. Without Russia, his fund management business quickly tanked.

  6. Rehmat says:

    Israel Shamir should have learned from his own experience that in the Zionist colonized “civilized West” there is no ‘freedom of speech’ for people who are disliked by the powerful Organized Jewry.

    For example, Europe’s so-called cradle of ‘freedom of speech’ – France, where insulting Muslims and Islam had long been declared “freedom of speech” – but French Christians who tell the truth about Jewish history are persecuted.

    On Tuesday, a French court fined French philosopher Alain Soral $13,000 and six month suspended jail sentence for saying that Nazis should have finished killing the Jews of Europe.

    The sentence, handed down was over Soral’s Facebook post of last year about Romanian Serge Klarsfield, 80, and his German wife Beate Klarsfeld, 77, the so-called ‘Nazi hunter couple’. The legendary Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal was a Mossad agent according to Dalia Karpel, Ha’aretz, February 9, 2010.

    “This is what happens when you don’t finish the job,” Soral wrote about an article on a state honor of Federal Order of Merit conferred on the Klarsfelds by Germany last year. During the acceptance speech both parroted the “rising antisemitism in Europe” mantra.

    The judge found Soral guilty of “justifying war crimes and crimes against humanity.” In other words supporting Israeli rabbis that Jews are the only humans and the rest of six billion people were created to serve the 13 million Jews!

    The judge also ordered Soral to pay $5,600, to each of the Klarsfelds and $2,250, to the International League against Racism and Anti-Semitism, which filed the complaint against Soral for his Facebook post.

    In 2004, Alain Soral was fined $8,000 for insulting the Zionist Jewry.

    In relation to Serge Klarsfeld (not a Romanian, but "born in Bucharest to a family of Romanian Jews" - Wikipedia) Wikipedia gives some interesting details:

    "In 2012 the archivist of the Stasi revealed that Klarsfeld's attack on the chancellor was carried out in agreement with and the support of the government of East Germany, which was conducting a campaign against West German politicians (see Braunbuch). Beate Klarsfeld was paid 2,000 DM by the Stasi for her actions. Both Serge and Beate Klarsfeld were revealed to have been regular Stasi contacts. According to the State Commissioner for the Stasi Archives of Saxony, they cooperated with the Stasi in the 1960s in blackmailing West German politicians for Second World War activities... The cooperation of both Beate and Serge Klarsfeld with the Stasi and their status as contacts was also documented in a new book by former Stasi officers, Günter Bohnsack and Herbert Brehmer."

    I have written this before, but most US citizens think that CIA is a big bureaucracy which does secret stuff. Although this is partially true, there are also free-wheeling agents who work primarily for their own private or group interest (getting rich) and hopefully also in the Israeli and/or US national interest. Like in everything else, intelligence agencies are organised in a packing order: Mossad at the top, CIA working for Mossad, MI6 and BND working for CIA and so on. But most of the time these agencies both cooperate and compete and sometimes shaft each other (e.g. 911), from project to project.

    One small complaint within a great article. Israel says:


    One has to recognise that the US is second to none for freedom of speech on the globe.
     
    This is a wrong interpretation of what transpired. There are two reasons why the documentary could have been shown in the US but not in EU:
    1) EU is a lower level servant of the state of Israel than the US, and
    2) EU has the most draconian libel laws (especially UK), which make stating anything about a lawyered person prepared for lawfare too risky. Nothing to do with freedom of speech.

    The most interesting, previously unknown, detail to me in this article was that Browder's grandfather was the leader of the US Communist Party. This underlines Communism as primarily a Jewish movement world-wide.

    This is priceless: “We do not know whether Browder is, or had been, a spy. This should not surprise us, as he was closely connected to Maxwell, Safra and Berezovsky, the financiers with strong ties in the intelligence community.”

    Could Mr. Browder hope for a better end of life than Maxwell, Safra and Berezovsky? And what would be the fate of Mr. Cardin, the famous congressional prostitute? http://www.councilforthenationalinterest.org/new/?p=3742#.V2fRqzc5FCo

    “Israel’s Agent of Influence: Senator Ben Cardin shows how it’s done:”

    “So who does Cardin actually represent? I would suggest that he fits the mold of the classic agent of influence in that his allegiance to the United States is constrained by his greater loyalty to a foreign nation.”

    Israel Shamir should have learned from his own experience that in the Zionist colonized "civilized West" there is no 'freedom of speech' for people who are disliked by the powerful Organized Jewry.

    For example, Europe's so-called cradle of 'freedom of speech' - France, where insulting Muslims and Islam had long been declared "freedom of speech" - but French Christians who tell the truth about Jewish history are persecuted.

    On Tuesday, a French court fined French philosopher Alain Soral $13,000 and six month suspended jail sentence for saying that Nazis should have finished killing the Jews of Europe.

    The sentence, handed down was over Soral’s Facebook post of last year about Romanian Serge Klarsfield, 80, and his German wife Beate Klarsfeld, 77, the so-called ‘Nazi hunter couple’. The legendary Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal was a Mossad agent according to Dalia Karpel, Ha’aretz, February 9, 2010.

    “This is what happens when you don’t finish the job,” Soral wrote about an article on a state honor of Federal Order of Merit conferred on the Klarsfelds by Germany last year. During the acceptance speech both parroted the “rising antisemitism in Europe” mantra.

    The judge found Soral guilty of “justifying war crimes and crimes against humanity.” In other words supporting Israeli rabbis that Jews are the only humans and the rest of six billion people were created to serve the 13 million Jews!

    The judge also ordered Soral to pay $5,600, to each of the Klarsfelds and $2,250, to the International League against Racism and Anti-Semitism, which filed the complaint against Soral for his Facebook post.

    In 2004, Alain Soral was fined $8,000 for insulting the Zionist Jewry.

    Alas, Putinist Russia is dangerous to those who would criticize Putin’s regime, or Putin himself. Putin is known for using accusations of tax evasion as an excuse for seizing certain businesses. If he has to, he has no compunction about jailing the proprietors, especially if they become politically active in opposition to Putin and his greater Russian schemes. Just ask Khodorkovsky.

    That is true but if you are arrested for drug dealing and you say that there are worse drug dealers that you but they are never arrested because they are police informers then that does not get you out of it does it? Everyone knew what the law was, and how it was enforced.

    Khodorkovsky's organisation was responsible for several murders, and he must have known what was going on. These killings including a married couple who were ex-employee of Khodorkovsky, someone who sued Khodorkovsky for a lot of money had his chauffeur killed by a booby trap bomb in his limo, a woman who refused to sell them a building was shot dead and a Moscow female official had an attempt made on her life after she caused trouble for Khodorkovsky. Most notoriously the mayor of a town where Khodorkovsky had acquired exposure to back taxes started camping outside the Khodorkovsky company office to embarrass them. He was shot dead one month later.

    Browder was more subtle but according to Wikipedia "Magnitsky was a Russian tax accountant who specialized in anti-corruption activities. ". Most tax accountants I know of specialise in tax avoidance and dabble in the legal gray area around criminal tax evasion. In Russia you must bribe the receptionist to get an appointment with the doctor, and I don't suppose in prison the doctors are very good even by the relaxed standards of Russian medical practice.

    "...Browder was not after money at all..." Uh, no. Browder was notorious for his greed and obsession with money. This is someone who had a program that calculated his personal net worth online and would check it no less than every half hour. Think Gordon Gekko but too cheap to even buy a decent suit. While there may have been some intelligence connections somewhere along the way, as the article states, he went political only when his honey pot was removed. Without Russia, his fund management business quickly tanked.

    I don’t know anything more about this case than what Shamir has written … but the connection of CIA, leftists and banking is NOT unusual at all. It’s highly typical and goes back many decades. Wherever you find American leftists, you’ll find banking and CIA/OSS connections.

    Maxwell stole a few million dollars from his company pension fund before dying in mysterious circumstances on board of his yacht in the Atlantic.

    The amount Maxwell nicked from his own workers was more than a few million. It was in fact £440 million, or about $1 billion. Moreover, Maxwell died, according to the official inquest held in Madrid, not “on board his yacht” but of “accidental drowning.” However, it was claimed by Auberon Waugh, writing in the Telegraph, that the corpse recovered from the ocean as that of Robert Maxwell (and buried on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem), was in fact the remains of a small white whale. In view of Maxwell’s enormous size and weight, who could really be sure.

    After Maxwell, Browder switched allegiance to Edmond Safra, a very rich Jewish banker of Lebanese origin… The banker’s name has been connected to Mossad: increasingly fearful for his life, Safra surrounded himself by Mossad-trained gunmen. This did not help him: he died a horrible death in his bathroom when his villa was torched by one of the guards.

    Safra’s widow has had an interesting life … various patterns emerge … from wikipedia

    Lily Safra (née Watkins) is a Brazilian philanthropist and socialite who attained considerable wealth through her four marriages. By March 2013, her net worth was estimated at $1.2 billion; according to Forbes, she is one of the richest people in the world. Safra has a significant art collection and owns the historic Villa Leopolda on the French Riviera.

    Safra was born Lily Watkins on December 30, 1934, in Porto Alegre, Brazil, daughter of Wolf White Watkins, a Czechoslovak railway engineer who moved to South America, and Annita Noudelman de Castro, a Uruguayan of Russian-Jewish ancestry. She grew up in Rio de Janeiro but moved with her family to Uruguay.

    At the age of 17, she met and married Mario Cohen, an Argentine hosiery magnate of Italian-Jewish descent. They had three children: Claudio, Eduardo, and Adriana. (Claudio died with his three-year-old son in a car crash in Brazil ca. 1989.) Lily and Cohen divorced in the early 1960s.

    In 1965, she married Alfredo “Freddy” Monteverde, (formerly Greenberg). He was a Romanian Jewish immigrant who fled Europe in 1939 because of Nazi Germany’s persecution of Jews. He was a leader in the Brazilian household appliance distribution business, where he established the Ponto Frio brand. He and Lily adopted a child, named Carlos. In 1969, Monteverde committed suicide. According to biographer Isabel Vincent, Monteverde left all his assets to his wife.

    One month after her husband’s death, Lily Monteverde moved to London. Her late husband’s banker, Edmond Safra, helped her secure control over her late spouse’s entire fortune. She dated Safra for some time but the romance ended. Her family, who is of Ashkenazi Jewish descent, did not approve of her relationship with Safra, who was of Sephardic Jewish descent.

    In 1972, Monteverde married businessman Samuel Bendahan, also a Sephardic Jew. They separated after two weeks, and she divorced him after one year of marriage.

    In 1976, Monteverde married Edmond Safra after all.

There's so much more to Lily Safra, the death of her late (fourth) husband, Edmond Safra, and his connection to Russia. I hope more reporters will try to dig deeper and go beyond what powerful individuals want us to believe. The whole story has yet to emerge.

    The US Congress rushed in the Magnitsky Act, the first salvo of the Cold War Two. By this act, any Russian person could be found responsible for Mr Magnitsky’s untimely death and for misappropriation of Browder’s assets. His properties could be seized, bank accounts frozen – without any legal process or representation. This act upset the Russians, who allegedly had kept a cool $500 billion in the Western banks, so tit for tat started, and it goes to this very day.

    Here is the real crime – the Jew control of our government.

    We expect Jews to be thieves and cheating money changers – that is a given – that is their cultural DNA. Jew dishonest greed is legendary.

    But here we see the US government – congress and the presidency – backing up Jew crime and Jew criminals. Look at all the evil that the Jew oligarchs did to Russia – a nation of hundreds of million people. Look at how America is turned and used by Jews.

    Here is the real truth – the giant crime of a tribe. Browder did not do this on his own – he had a criminal network of Jews backing him up. Browder had AIPAC, and J-Street, and the ADL, and your Jew neighbor backing him up.

    This is a JEW tribal crime. Thinking anything else is cowardly.

    his hacks re-wrote his Wikipedia entry, expunging even discussions of the topic
     
    Wikipedia talk pages are regularly archived so that only active discussions are on the main talk page. "Expunged" implies they were deleted and not available. In fact, the old talk pages for the article are all available one click away from the main talk page.

    Here, for example, is a much longer archived talk page for Browder:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Bill_Browder&oldid=544048631

    Likewise, there seems to be no censorship of the article. Rather, like most wikipedia articles, over the years the article has slowly grown in length. The only substantial deletion from the article in the past 6 years was the recent deletion of a 4,000 word quotation from a source article. Such very long quotations are usually copyright violations and in any case are not good wikipedia style.

    In short, both your claim of wikipedia censorship and wikipedia "expunging" content are completely wrong.

    The wikipedia editor who made the deletion and is presumably the "hack" is an extremely prolific editor who has made more than 500 wikipedia edits in the past month and many thousands of edits since 2009, the first being on the articles "Protein folding" and "Chloride peroxidase."

    Now it is possible Browder has a long-time wikipedia super-editor as one of his "hacks," but if you are going to libel a person like this, some evidence should be presented.

    Wikipedia is highly controlled by supremacist Jew fanatics / Zionists, as are many other sites.

    After Maxwell, Browder switched allegiance to Edmond Safra, a very rich Jewish banker of Lebanese origin... The banker’s name has been connected to Mossad: increasingly fearful for his life, Safra surrounded himself by Mossad-trained gunmen. This did not help him: he died a horrible death in his bathroom when his villa was torched by one of the guards.
     
    Safra's widow has had an interesting life ... various patterns emerge ... from wikipedia

    Lily Safra (née Watkins) is a Brazilian philanthropist and socialite who attained considerable wealth through her four marriages. By March 2013, her net worth was estimated at $1.2 billion; according to Forbes, she is one of the richest people in the world. Safra has a significant art collection and owns the historic Villa Leopolda on the French Riviera.

    Safra was born Lily Watkins on December 30, 1934, in Porto Alegre, Brazil, daughter of Wolf White Watkins, a Czechoslovak railway engineer who moved to South America, and Annita Noudelman de Castro, a Uruguayan of Russian-Jewish ancestry. She grew up in Rio de Janeiro but moved with her family to Uruguay.

    At the age of 17, she met and married Mario Cohen, an Argentine hosiery magnate of Italian-Jewish descent. They had three children: Claudio, Eduardo, and Adriana. (Claudio died with his three-year-old son in a car crash in Brazil ca. 1989.) Lily and Cohen divorced in the early 1960s.

    In 1965, she married Alfredo "Freddy" Monteverde, (formerly Greenberg). He was a Romanian Jewish immigrant who fled Europe in 1939 because of Nazi Germany's persecution of Jews. He was a leader in the Brazilian household appliance distribution business, where he established the Ponto Frio brand. He and Lily adopted a child, named Carlos. In 1969, Monteverde committed suicide. According to biographer Isabel Vincent, Monteverde left all his assets to his wife.

    One month after her husband's death, Lily Monteverde moved to London. Her late husband's banker, Edmond Safra, helped her secure control over her late spouse's entire fortune. She dated Safra for some time but the romance ended. Her family, who is of Ashkenazi Jewish descent, did not approve of her relationship with Safra, who was of Sephardic Jewish descent.

    In 1972, Monteverde married businessman Samuel Bendahan, also a Sephardic Jew. They separated after two weeks, and she divorced him after one year of marriage.

    In 1976, Monteverde married Edmond Safra after all.

    Yep. Watkins is a surname in Wales amongst descendants of Flemish immigrants. Wat's kin or son. There was a sizeable Jewish community in Wales so there may have been a marriage to a Jewish woman from Czechoslovakia that produced a son who went to his mother's country. Wales made a lot of rails.

    My, we are disempowered, aren't we? Amid a plethora of articles and books suggesting that Jewish people conspire together to enrich themselves, buy politicians and control governments, no one dares say a word - unless, like Mr Shamir, they are themselves Jewish. Even then there is a definite risk, which I thank and applaud Mr Shamir for taking.

    Are we talking about the same Browder? If this one is the son of Earl Browder, former head of CPUSA in the thirties, we need to note that EB was born in Kansas to a farmer who was also a Methodist minister. Earl Browder was, to my knowledge, a Unitarian until he shucked religion for Communism.

    Earl married Raissa Berkman, a Russian Jew in about 1929 while on a trip to the USSR. Bill's father was likely raised as an ethnic Jew and may have married Jewish as well, which would make Bill a Jew.

If anything Browder was one of the few CPUSA leaders who didn't come from a Jewish background, but if your mantra is "the Jew is the Communist and the Communist is the Jew", that's you ready to partake in an Einsatzgruppe in Belarus in 1941.

  38. Incredible–well, not really–that our mainstream media resolutely refuses to print, much less discuss, the two main pieces of information here:

    1. Browder was the one who gained most from Magnitsky’s death as evidenced by the interview in which the latter asserted a fear of being killed by Browder.

    2. Nekrasov, the film’s director, has a history of making films very critical of Putin and the Russian government and state.

    US media coverage either omits any mention of these two points or buries allusions to them in the article. The NYT piece on Browder’s attempt to block the film’s screening at the Newseum in Washington was filed in the “Europe” section of the paper.

    Freedom of speech is under assault in the West and, again and again, we see the common denominator of these despicable efforts to suppress key information.

    Earl Browder, born into a Kansas Methodist farm family became the head of the Communist party in the U.S. in the 30's, probably for idealistic reasons. As a Communist, he became an atheist. He went to Russia and married a Russian Jewish woman. Their son, Felix, raised as a Jew by his mother, became a mathematician. Felix Browder married a Jewish woman and their son is the William Browder, subject of this article. William Browder is thus 3/4 Jewish. His one grandfather, from whom he got his name, was born a Christian gentile, but chucked it up to become a Communist leader. Through marriage to Jewish women, his grandson, William, is a ruthless capitalist Jewish oligarch who contributed to scavenging the decaying body of the former Soviet Union.

    5/ In the distant past when a person committed a capital crime while riding a horse, it was not impossible to put the horse on trial as well. Ha, ha, ha, boy is that ridiculous, putting a horse on trial. Almost as ridiculous as, as, as, well, putting a corpse on trial.

    The establishment surely closed ranks around Janner, whom I had the distinct inconvenience of shaking hands with once, at a speech arranged by some club or the other at my alma mater in the latish 90s. That he was a buggerer of little boys had already made the rounds, yet it was with astonishing ease the good Lord Janner managed to negotiate his way around Labour/lefty social circles. "trial of the facts" was all they could muster and in keeping with the impunity that marked several decades of his activities, Janner passed as you say, to the big orphanage upstairs. I am also reminded, 'as it 'appens' of Jimmy Savile who similarly managed to give CPS the slip (?); his preference, if memory serves was for little girls, apparently on occasion arranged in a row.

    a/ that you think that 'anony-rat' is an argument.

    b/ that you (along with many others here) are backing Shamir in justifying in some way a post-mortem trial.

    In the distant future when people look back on this trial they're going to react like we do today to the idea of trying horses for the crimes of their owners. Why not?

    Israel Shamir should have learned from his own experience that in the Zionist colonized "civilized West" there is no 'freedom of speech' for people who are disliked by the powerful Organized Jewry.

    For example, Europe's so-called cradle of 'freedom of speech' - France, where insulting Muslims and Islam had long been declared "freedom of speech" - but French Christians who tell the truth about Jewish history are persecuted.

    On Tuesday, a French court fined French philosopher Alain Soral $13,000 and six month suspended jail sentence for saying that Nazis should have finished killing the Jews of Europe.

    The sentence, handed down was over Soral’s Facebook post of last year about Romanian Serge Klarsfield, 80, and his German wife Beate Klarsfeld, 77, the so-called ‘Nazi hunter couple’. The legendary Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal was a Mossad agent according to Dalia Karpel, Ha’aretz, February 9, 2010.

    “This is what happens when you don’t finish the job,” Soral wrote about an article on a state honor of Federal Order of Merit conferred on the Klarsfelds by Germany last year. During the acceptance speech both parroted the “rising antisemitism in Europe” mantra.

    The judge found Soral guilty of “justifying war crimes and crimes against humanity.” In other words supporting Israeli rabbis that Jews are the only humans and the rest of six billion people were created to serve the 13 million Jews!

    The judge also ordered Soral to pay $5,600, to each of the Klarsfelds and $2,250, to the International League against Racism and Anti-Semitism, which filed the complaint against Soral for his Facebook post.

    In 2004, Alain Soral was fined $8,000 for insulting the Zionist Jewry.

    https://rehmat1.com/2016/06/19/french-philosopher-fined-27000-for-insulting-jews/

    In relation to Serge Klarsfeld (not a Romanian, but “born in Bucharest to a family of Romanian Jews” – Wikipedia) Wikipedia gives some interesting details:

    “In 2012 the archivist of the Stasi revealed that Klarsfeld’s attack on the chancellor was carried out in agreement with and the support of the government of East Germany, which was conducting a campaign against West German politicians (see Braunbuch). Beate Klarsfeld was paid 2,000 DM by the Stasi for her actions. Both Serge and Beate Klarsfeld were revealed to have been regular Stasi contacts. According to the State Commissioner for the Stasi Archives of Saxony, they cooperated with the Stasi in the 1960s in blackmailing West German politicians for Second World War activities… The cooperation of both Beate and Serge Klarsfeld with the Stasi and their status as contacts was also documented in a new book by former Stasi officers, Günter Bohnsack and Herbert Brehmer.”

    How funny to hear people question Browder’s Jewishness, in the Unz comments section of all places. Lest there be any doubt, he, himself, very much identified as being a Jew, to the extent that he had a Mezuzah on his office doorway and hired only Jewish employees.

    Concerning Magnitsky’s indeed unusual posthumous trial, this was actually at the behest of his own mother who refused to sign the legal papers closing the criminal case due to his death. This is usually a mere formality. However, the Russian legal system is a stickler for the letter of the law and so the trial went ahead. His mother’s motivation was unclear, though it probably had something to do with extra publicity.

    When I first became aware of Mr. Browder a number of years ago, I was curious about his name, since I was aware of Earl Browder, the former head of the American Communist Party when I was growing up. After I subsequently learned of the familial connection, I was highly amused to discover the leap from Communist to capitalist in three generations. But then I recalled that Dr. Armand Hammer, eventually the controlling shareholder of Occidental Petroleum, had a father who was also a doctor, an emigrant from Odessa, and a founder of the Communist Party U.S.A. That was a mere two generations to make the leap from Communist to capitalist.

    A few years ago I happened to read an amusing memoir of the girl who was my date to my high school prom but who went on to achieve a modest fame and acquaintance with many prominent Americans and foreigners. (I am being intentionally vague.) When I was dating her in high school and college, I operated under the false assumption that her mother (whom I met) was Jewish and her natural father (whom I never met); I met her stepfather, who was Jewish) was Catholic, which I thought was kind of cool, since I was totally nonreligious. You can imagine my disappointment to learn nearly a half century later that both of her natural parents were Jewish. Elsewhere in her memoir, my friend referred to her mother’s sister, who was a member of the Communist Party and got caught up in the Hollywood blacklist and lost her job. (That was the first I heard of it, btw.) Things turned out well for her since she hooked up with and married a wealthy Jewish doctor, who left her a sizable fortune when he died. She eventually moved to Israel where she found nirvana, marrying a much younger man and enjoying late in life “fantastic sex.” So, it appears that what motivates many young Communists is the dream of becoming fantastically wealthy and enjoying life as a plutocrat, not the BS of improving life for the downtrodden. If I weren’t such a natural skeptic, I would have been very disillusioned, but not as much as I was to discover late in life that her father was Jewish and not Catholic. Apologies to all those women I dated in my 20′s and 30′s whom I regaled with the story of my half-Jewish, half-Catholic prom date.

    It became tedious to evoke the murky relations of Bolshevism with the Jewish bank cartel in the financing of Lenin, Trotsky &Co by Jacob Schiff ("a banker who grew up in House of Rothschild Frankfurt, monopolized American rail system, funded the Rockefellers through First City Bank, ADL and the NAACP. Schiff's granddaughter married Al Gore's Son"... From his base on Wall Street, he was the foremost Jewish leader from 1880 to 1920 in what later became known as the "Schiff era", grappling with all major Jewish issues and problems of the day, including the plight of Russian Jews under the Tsar, American and international anti-semitism, care of needy Jewish immigrants, and the rise of Zionism" - per Wikipedia), and Warburg ("Paul Warburg was a planner for the U.S. Federal Reserve System which is a collection of private banks, and attended as American representative, the Treaty of Versailles conference, where his brother Max was on the German side of the bargaining table"...by Wiki). One can see why Lenin was 'permitted' to pass through Germany!

    Schiff financed the Japanese for their attack on Russia ("He... extended loans to the Empire of Japan in the amount of $200 million, through Kuhn, Loeb & Co... Schiff saw this loan as a means of answering, on behalf of the Jewish people, the anti-Semitic actions of the Russian Empire, specifically the then-recent Kishinev pogrom"), the 1905 Revolution and the 1917 Revolution. "In addition to his famous loan to Japan, Schiff financed loans to many other nations, including those that would come to comprise the Central Powers... Schiff made sure none of the funds from his loans ever went to the Russian Empire, which he felt oppressed Jewish people. When the Russian Empire fell in 1917, Schiff believed that the oppression of Jews would end. He formally repealed the impediments within his firm against lending to Russia". It's true that Communist Russia quickly opened the door for foreign investment (NEP) and the looting of Russia.
    When Stalin tried to reduce USSR's dependence on foreign investments, he became instantly the monster. It is remarkable that America stood behind Trotsky in the case of the so-called "Show Trials" (The Dewey Commission).
    Particularly interesting is that (per Wikipedia);
    "Some ten years later, the Dewey Commission was cited in great detail, when in an open letter to the British press dated 25 February 1946, written by George Orwell and signed by Arthur Koestler, C.

    To hold a posthumous trial of an individual to establish the facts of the case sounds very like holding a "trial of the facts" while he is alive but reportedly too senile to be put in the dock in an actual trial. And most unluckily for anony-rats, the latter procedure was exactly that which the justice system of perfidious Albion was going to apply to the great and good "Lord" Greville Janner, shining light among British Jews, pioneering holocaust-propagandist and alleged sexual abuser of dozens of children, had he not conveniently passed on to the great big orphanage in the sky.

    The establishment surely closed ranks around Janner, whom I had the distinct inconvenience of shaking hands with once, at a speech arranged by some club or the other at my alma mater in the latish 90s. That he was a buggerer of little boys had already made the rounds, yet it was with astonishing ease the good Lord Janner managed to negotiate his way around Labour/lefty social circles. “trial of the facts” was all they could muster and in keeping with the impunity that marked several decades of his activities, Janner passed as you say, to the big orphanage upstairs. I am also reminded, ‘as it ‘appens’ of Jimmy Savile who similarly managed to give CPS the slip (?); his preference, if memory serves was for little girls, apparently on occasion arranged in a row.

    Wikipedia can be crooked.
    From my own experience.
    I contacted Wikipedia with some serious complaints about an article discussing a court decision, which presented opinion as being fact. .
    Wikipedia almost immediately replied, disputing my complaint about the content.
    When I immediately returned to the article, the sections about which I complained were gone, and the whole article had been re written, except for remaining one identifier critical line.
    Very fast work, indeed.
    My mistake was in not saving the original article, and printing it.
    Wikipedia would never admit to its informational “crime.”
    Obviously Wikipedia admitted guilt by first grossly changing the article, and then refusing to admit to that.
    On any critical issue, never trust Wikipedia.
    This is always a big problem with anything not published and distributed on paper .
    Unless you are searching not for light, but for the darkness.

    “Yet Schroeder’s employment in an oil-gas venture that is 51 percent owned by Gazprom no more makes Schroeder a Russian prostitute than big campaign contributions to Lantos from the Washington PAC make him a whore for Israel. Presumably, Schroeder believes trade with Russia is in Germany’s (and Europe’s) interests, just as Lantos thinks America’s current policy of unconditional support for Israel is good for America.

    http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2007/06/27/tom-lantos-warmonger/

    As is often the case with AP’s coverage of news having to do with Israel, there’s a serious omission in its reporting on the Russia-Israel connection even when it involves oil and the United States.

    The day after the State of the Union Address, two Interpol fugitives attended the “National Prayer Breakfast” held in Washington DC. The day before that, these fugitives from the law were the guests of honor at an hour-long meeting of the International Relations Committee on Capitol Hill, invited by ranking Democrat Tom Lantos (Calif.)

    You would think it would be hot news when wanted men being hunted by European police suddenly pop up in the US particularly on Capitol Hill and at events attended by the US president.

    Yet, there was not a single AP story in the US on any of this. [1] Not a single national network television or radio news program even mentioned these facts. In fact, Google and LexisNexis searches four days after these events took place turned up only three newspaper articles on them anywhere in the entire country. [2]

    Who are these fugitives from the law, wanted by Interpol, who are meeting at the highest levels of the US government? And why didn’t we learn of them?

    Therein lies the story. These two men, it turns out, are just the tips of a colossal iceberg. And this iceberg doesn’t just have 90 percent of its mass hidden under water; this iceberg is almost entirely submerged.

    They are Mikhail Brudno and Vladimir Dubov, Israeli-Russian partners in the giant Russian oil company Yukos. They, along with a number of their cronies, are wanted by Interpol for allegedly bilking Russian citizens out of billions of dollars. To elude Russian prosecution, these men have taken up residence in Israel. [3]

    As the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz explains: “In recent years Russian authorities began investigating [Yukos], its managers and major stockholders, many of whom are of Jewish origin. The probes caused several of the managers to flee to Israel, and resulted in Khodorkovski’s [Yukos CEO] arrest and a Kremlin attack on Yukos.”

    I will suspect Tom Lantos was taking money from these fugitives

    When I first became aware of Mr. Browder a number of years ago, I was curious about his name, since I was aware of Earl Browder, the former head of the American Communist Party when I was growing up. After I subsequently learned of the familial connection, I was highly amused to discover the leap from Communist to capitalist in three generations. But then I recalled that Dr. Armand Hammer, eventually the controlling shareholder of Occidental Petroleum, had a father who was also a doctor, an emigrant from Odessa, and a founder of the Communist Party U.S.A. That was a mere two generations to make the leap from Communist to capitalist.

    A few years ago I happened to read an amusing memoir of the girl who was my date to my high school prom but who went on to achieve a modest fame and acquaintance with many prominent Americans and foreigners. (I am being intentionally vague.) When I was dating her in high school and college, I operated under the false assumption that her mother (whom I met) was Jewish and her natural father (whom I never met); I met her stepfather, who was Jewish) was Catholic, which I thought was kind of cool, since I was totally nonreligious. You can imagine my disappointment to learn nearly a half century later that both of her natural parents were Jewish. Elsewhere in her memoir, my friend referred to her mother's sister, who was a member of the Communist Party and got caught up in the Hollywood blacklist and lost her job. (That was the first I heard of it, btw.) Things turned out well for her since she hooked up with and married a wealthy Jewish doctor, who left her a sizable fortune when he died. She eventually moved to Israel where she found nirvana, marrying a much younger man and enjoying late in life "fantastic sex." So, it appears that what motivates many young Communists is the dream of becoming fantastically wealthy and enjoying life as a plutocrat, not the BS of improving life for the downtrodden. If I weren't such a natural skeptic, I would have been very disillusioned, but not as much as I was to discover late in life that her father was Jewish and not Catholic. Apologies to all those women I dated in my 20's and 30's whom I regaled with the story of my half-Jewish, half-Catholic prom date.

    "Sounds a lot like Ayn Rand."

    I assume you are referring to the aunt, who was a Communist in Hollywood. As I indicated in my message, the first I learned about her aunt was from reading the memoir a few years ago.

    With respect to the memoir, I had the uneasy feeling when I read it that it was not altogether truthful. I am mentioned briefly in the memoir, and the few pages were very flattering, so I have nothing to complain about. But some of the details are wrong, which led me to speculate that, if she got our story wrong whether accidentally or deliberately, the details of the numerous other stories in her book could also be untrustworthy. I posted in detail about my friend's memoir on Rod Dreher's blog dealing with Lena Dunham's "memoir" about a year and a half ago. See http://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher/liar-lena-dunham/comment-page-2/#comment-7047604

    My friend's memoir ostensibly was written by her, not a "as told to" book. It is very well written and very funny, and, as far as I know, it is the first book written by her. And, while her talents lie in areas other than writing, her memoir refers to her close friendship over the years with a man noted for his writing ability, and I suspect that he played a major role in reviewing and editing my friend's "memoir." (Within the past few years, my older first cousin who is in her late 80's and who graduated from Radcliffe in the late 40's wrote a book based on her late mother's experience growing up in rural Greece in the early part of the 20th century before coming to America. I was impressed with my cousin's effort and actually learned a lot about my family, but I could tell she had little experience writing books since the book did not flow easily and could have used some editing by a professional writer. My friend's memoir, on the other hand, has a very professional touch to it, is tightly written and is very entertaining.)

    It became tedious to evoke the murky relations of Bolshevism with the Jewish bank cartel in the financing of Lenin, Trotsky &Co by Jacob Schiff (“a banker who grew up in House of Rothschild Frankfurt, monopolized American rail system, funded the Rockefellers through First City Bank, ADL and the NAACP. Schiff’s granddaughter married Al Gore’s Son”… From his base on Wall Street, he was the foremost Jewish leader from 1880 to 1920 in what later became known as the “Schiff era”, grappling with all major Jewish issues and problems of the day, including the plight of Russian Jews under the Tsar, American and international anti-semitism, care of needy Jewish immigrants, and the rise of Zionism” – per Wikipedia), and Warburg (“Paul Warburg was a planner for the U.S. Federal Reserve System which is a collection of private banks, and attended as American representative, the Treaty of Versailles conference, where his brother Max was on the German side of the bargaining table”…by Wiki). One can see why Lenin was ‘permitted’ to pass through Germany!

    Schiff financed the Japanese for their attack on Russia (“He… extended loans to the Empire of Japan in the amount of $200 million, through Kuhn, Loeb & Co… Schiff saw this loan as a means of answering, on behalf of the Jewish people, the anti-Semitic actions of the Russian Empire, specifically the then-recent Kishinev pogrom”), the 1905 Revolution and the 1917 Revolution. “In addition to his famous loan to Japan, Schiff financed loans to many other nations, including those that would come to comprise the Central Powers… Schiff made sure none of the funds from his loans ever went to the Russian Empire, which he felt oppressed Jewish people. When the Russian Empire fell in 1917, Schiff believed that the oppression of Jews would end. He formally repealed the impediments within his firm against lending to Russia”. It’s true that Communist Russia quickly opened the door for foreign investment (NEP) and the looting of Russia.
    When Stalin tried to reduce USSR’s dependence on foreign investments, he became instantly the monster. It is remarkable that America stood behind Trotsky in the case of the so-called “Show Trials” (The Dewey Commission).
    Particularly interesting is that (per Wikipedia);
    “Some ten years later, the Dewey Commission was cited in great detail, when in an open letter to the British press dated 25 February 1946, written by George Orwell and signed by Arthur Koestler, C.

When the Russian Empire fell in 1917, Schiff believed that the oppression of Jews would end. He formally repealed the impediments within his firm against lending to Russia". It's true that Communist Russia quickly opened the door for foreign investment (NEP) and the looting of Russia.
    When Stalin tried to reduce USSR's dependence on foreign investments, he became instantly the monster. It is remarkable that America stood behind Trotsky in the case of the so-called "Show Trials" (The Dewey Commission).
    Particularly interesting is that (per Wikipedia);
    "Some ten years later, the Dewey Commission was cited in great detail, when in an open letter to the British press dated 25 February 1946, written by George Orwell and signed by Arthur Koestler, C. E. M. Joad, Frank Horrabin, George Padmore, Julian Symons, H. G. Wells, F. A. Ridley, C. A. Smith and John Baird, among others, it was suggested that the Nuremberg Trials then underway were an invaluable opportunity for establishing "historical truth and bearing upon the political integrity" of figures of international standing. Specifically, they called for Rudolf Hess to be interrogated about his alleged meeting with Trotsky and that the Gestapo records then in the hands of Allied experts be examined for any proof of any "liaison between the Nazi Party or State and Trotsky or the other old Bolshevik leaders indicted at the Moscow trials..."

    You think it was all because of the Warburgs? Or maybe because Germany was fighting for her life and needed to bet on any long shot of weakening one of her enemies?

    More conspiracy theories posited as fact.

    Alas, Putinist Russia is dangerous to those who would criticize Putin's regime, or Putin himself. Putin is known for using accusations of tax evasion as an excuse for seizing certain businesses. If he has to, he has no compunction about jailing the proprietors, especially if they become politically active in opposition to Putin and his greater Russian schemes. Just ask Khodorkovsky.

    Is this what your former-Soviet relatives have been telling you? Still believing in anti-semitism in Russia? Perhaps you need to inform yourself about recent executive order (anti-Constitutional) prohibiting a peaceful worldwide protest known as BDS: “NY Gov. Cuomo signs “unconstitutional, McCarthyite” pro-Israel exec. order punishing BDS boycott movement”http://www.salon.com/2016/06/05/ny_gov_cuomo_signing_unconstitutional_mccarthyite_pro_israel_exec_order_punishing_bds_boycott_movement/

    1/ '... The Untouchable Mr. Browder?...'

    No problem. Just wait till he dies and then put him on trial. Worked for Magnitsky didn't it? So why the fuss?

    2/ As to wikipedia edits-here's a wikipedia article with obviously very few edits you can work on:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posthumous_trial

    Only one (Magnitsky) posthumous trial in the last few centuries? That can't be right, can it?

    3/ Sorry folks but Putin bungled. You can't condemn Browder without condemning Magnitsky and very few (sane) people will condemn the 'defendant' in a post-mortem trial.

    Giving him not one but two lawyers in his trial (one who wore a t-shirt during the proceedings). Nice touch.

    4/Should in the future Shamir question the justice system of any other country, remember, he thinks post-mortem trials are just fine. In fact, he endorsed the verdict in one.

    5/ In the distant past when a person committed a capital crime while riding a horse, it was not impossible to put the horse on trial as well. Ha, ha, ha, boy is that ridiculous, putting a horse on trial. Almost as ridiculous as, as, as, well, putting a corpse on trial.

    6/ If you want to link Jews with a clear victim of injustice (Magnitsky) go ahead.

    “Sorry folks but Putin bungled.” – What has Putin to do with the holy Browder?

    “If you want to link Jews with a clear victim of injustice…”

    Sorry to barge in on your discussion, maybe I am to blame for initiating it in this thread.

    In terms of progression from Communism to Capitalism in so many or no generations, I would offer an opinion (from personal encounters). It is the Populism part of the Communism which attracts demagogues and careerists, who are quick to change color at the first chance. True communists are often ideological extremists who would rather die than change colors. Many a capitalist learns from communists how to be a populist, one example which comes to mind is Lachlan Murdoch, Rupert Murdoch's son, who studied philosophy and was a fan of Marxism in his student days. This could be extended to contemporary populists such as Donald Trump - whatever he says is unreliable, he will change it in a blink of an eye.

    In summary, my point is that Populism is the cheap ideology under whose flag most opportunists fly. Under Communism the only version of Populism allowed was Communism thus so many converts after its demise. This part has nothing to do with Jews.

    There is no question the involvement of U.S. troops in Russia following the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 is downplayed in the U.S. As I noted, the issue wasn't touched on in my high school history class, and I was surprised to learn of our military involvement in Russia's civil war only when I went to college and bought the small paperback of Kennan's "Russia and the West Under Lenin and Stalin." In fact, I have a one-volume history of the U.S. written by one of the U.S.'s leading historians, Samuel Eliot Morison, who was the highly acclaimed biographer of Christopher Columbus and John Paul Jones and a long-time professor of history at Harvard. He was also the author of the highly acclaimed "History of the United States Naval Operations in World War II," a 15-volume effort. In his "The Oxford History of the American People" (1965, 1122 pages, ending with the 1963 assassination of JFK), he states briefly at p. 878 that "President Wilson went along [with efforts of France and Britain to overthrow the Bolsheviks] to the extent of sending a small American force to Archangel, ostensibly to prevent a cache of military supplies reaching Germany, and participating in a Japanese-directed invasion of Siberia, to see that Japan did not go too far." Rather cryptic reference to a somewhat small military involvement that lasted for more than a year and a half, but, in defense of Morison, his history was a one-volume affair (published by the Oxford University Press) and the American involvement in Russia had no effect on the Russian Revolution, other than to sour the relationship between the new Communist government and the U.S., which did not diplomatically recognize the new regime until FDR became President in 1933.

    A. Scott Berg has no such defense. His detailed biography of Wilson runs to 743 pages, and he makes no reference at all to the U.S. military contingent that was sent to Russia in 1918 by Wilson and remained there for more than a year and a half. You would think that Berg could have added a few brief sentences alluding to the military expeditionary force and a brief summary of its impact, but not a word. This from an author who discusses the infamous "Palmer raids" at the end of the Wilson Administration and the bombs which set off those raids. I am just puzzled about the omission and fail to see what agenda is being served, other than it highlights the utter hypocrisy of Wilson with his vaunted "Fourteen Points," which impliedly called for respect of international borders. Wilson was also the hypocrite who won reelection in a close race in 1916 running on a campaign that "he kept us out of war" and the declared war against Germany a month after he was reinaugurated in March 1917.

    When I first became aware of Mr. Browder a number of years ago, I was curious about his name, since I was aware of Earl Browder, the former head of the American Communist Party when I was growing up. After I subsequently learned of the familial connection, I was highly amused to discover the leap from Communist to capitalist in three generations. But then I recalled that Dr. Armand Hammer, eventually the controlling shareholder of Occidental Petroleum, had a father who was also a doctor, an emigrant from Odessa, and a founder of the Communist Party U.S.A. That was a mere two generations to make the leap from Communist to capitalist.

    A few years ago I happened to read an amusing memoir of the girl who was my date to my high school prom but who went on to achieve a modest fame and acquaintance with many prominent Americans and foreigners. (I am being intentionally vague.) When I was dating her in high school and college, I operated under the false assumption that her mother (whom I met) was Jewish and her natural father (whom I never met); I met her stepfather, who was Jewish) was Catholic, which I thought was kind of cool, since I was totally nonreligious. You can imagine my disappointment to learn nearly a half century later that both of her natural parents were Jewish. Elsewhere in her memoir, my friend referred to her mother's sister, who was a member of the Communist Party and got caught up in the Hollywood blacklist and lost her job. (That was the first I heard of it, btw.) Things turned out well for her since she hooked up with and married a wealthy Jewish doctor, who left her a sizable fortune when he died. She eventually moved to Israel where she found nirvana, marrying a much younger man and enjoying late in life "fantastic sex." So, it appears that what motivates many young Communists is the dream of becoming fantastically wealthy and enjoying life as a plutocrat, not the BS of improving life for the downtrodden. If I weren't such a natural skeptic, I would have been very disillusioned, but not as much as I was to discover late in life that her father was Jewish and not Catholic. Apologies to all those women I dated in my 20's and 30's whom I regaled with the story of my half-Jewish, half-Catholic prom date.

    It occurred to me to ask you if you thought her ideological metamorphosis had had in part, resulted from the entry of Alan Greenspan in their midst ;-) ?

    Great story to captivate your company no doubt!

    As I made clear in my message, Sam, the first I heard of her black-listed aunt was from reading my friend's memoir a few years ago. The aunt never came up in our conversations, and I knew her for roughly 10 years or more. In fact, we never discussed her natural father, whom she discusses a lot in the memoir. I have reason to doubt the veracity of her story for reasons stated here and in my earlier message on Dreher's blog and for other unstated reasons. (It was my first occasion to be mentioned in someone's memoir, and it became a consuming moment, because my still good memory remembered things very differently from what was represented in the one or two pages which refer to me quite favorably. My friend was not only attractive, but she was built like a young Elizabeth Taylor and was highly intelligent and a very nice girl. That leads me to suspect that the misrepresentations of which I am aware were deliberate and not accidents of a faulty memory and lead me to suspect that other parts of the memoir may be fabricated as well.) In reading about her Communist aunt, I was struck by the utter lack of irony expressed by my old friend. That applies as well to an overarching theme of the book which my friend violates without exhibiting any sense of self-awareness. I guess I gave her more credit than she deserved. She is also relatively vague about dates, which, I suspect, is done deliberately to hide inconsistencies in her story, many of which I only became aware of upon reading her memoir. Suddenly, things which had puzzled me at the time made sense, as I learned more details of her life.

(It was my first occasion to be mentioned in someone’s memoir, and it became a consuming moment, because my still good memory remembered things very differently from what was represented in the one or two pages which refer to me quite favorably. My friend was not only attractive, but she was built like a young Elizabeth Taylor and was highly intelligent and a very nice girl. That leads me to suspect that the misrepresentations of which I am aware were deliberate and not accidents of a faulty memory and lead me to suspect that other parts of the memoir may be fabricated as well.) In reading about her Communist aunt, I was struck by the utter lack of irony expressed by my old friend. That applies as well to an overarching theme of the book which my friend violates without exhibiting any sense of self-awareness. I guess I gave her more credit than she deserved. She is also relatively vague about dates, which, I suspect, is done deliberately to hide inconsistencies in her story, many of which I only became aware of upon reading her memoir. Suddenly, things which had puzzled me at the time made sense, as I learned more details of her life.

    BTW I wonder how many people, including posters here, are aware that the U.S., under President Wilson, sent a military expedition to Russia after the Communist takeover there in 1917 and kept them there for about a year and a half. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Expeditionary_Force_Siberia When I was in college in the early 60's, I bought a paperback of George Kennan's "Russia and the West, Under Lenin and Stalin" (hardcover ed. 1961), the first book of Kennan that I read, and was startled to learn of our military invasion of Russia at the end of WWI and after, something I didn't remember being taught in high school American history a few years earlier. That was about 50 years ago. This past year I got around to reading A. Scott Berg's much acclaimed biography, "Wilson." I didn't remember reading anything in that biography re Wilson's commitment of military forces to Russia. I have just reviewed the index and found one obscure reference to "military intervention in Russia" (p. 590 of hardcover ed.) and George Kennan. More important, I reviewed the Bibliography and found no reference to George Kennan's "Russia and the West, Under Lenin and Stalin." I don't know what to make of the gross omission by a highly-regarded biographer, but it is clear that an effort has been made to downplay this aspect of Wilson's policy, for reasons that escape me.

    As I often point out, the real purpose of that expedition was to prevent the Japanese from using the Russian civil war as an opportunity for large-scale expansion.

    Many of us are aware of the ‘Allied Intervention in the Russian civil war’ which occured in the aftermath of the Peace of Brest-Litovsk while the Entante was still at war with Germany. The chaos which ensued as a result of the misguided policies of the HLH (Hindenburg, Ludendorff, Hoffman), especially the ‘Napoleonic complex’ of Ludendorff compounded by the greedy desires of many petty German ‘Fuersten’ for crowns in the East, determined the Allies to intervene, motivated by the following considerations:
    - prevent the German or Bolshevik capture of Allied material stockpiles in Arkhangelsk
    - mount an attack helping the Czechoslovak Legions stranded on the Trans-Siberian Railroad
    – resurrect the Eastern Front by defeating the Bolshevik army with help from the Czechoslovak Legions and an expanded anti-Bolshevik force of local citizens and stop the spread of communism and the Bolshevik cause in Russia.

    Now, this is news only for graduates of American schools where history is no more taught. The Wikipedia entry (‘Allied intervention in the Russian Civil War’) would have been sufficient (for beginners) to set the record straight:

    “Severely short of troops to spare, the British and French requested that President Wilson provide American soldiers for the campaign. In July 1918, against the advice of the United States Department of War, Wilson agreed to the limited participation of 5,000 United States Army troops in the campaign. This force, which became known as the “American North Russia Expeditionary Force” (a.k.a. the Polar Bear Expedition) were sent to Arkhangelsk while another 8,000 soldiers, organised as the American Expeditionary Force Siberia, were shipped to Vladivostok from the Philippines and from Camp Fremont in California. That same month, the Canadian government agreed to the British government’s request to command and provide most of the soldiers for a combined British Empire force, which also included Australian and Indian troops. Some of this force was the Canadian Siberian Expeditionary Force; another part was the North Russia Intervention. A Royal Navy squadron was sent to the Baltic under Rear-Admiral Edwyn Alexander-Sinclair. This force consisted of modern C-class cruisers and V- and W-class destroyers. In December 1918, Sinclair sailed into Estonian and Latvian ports, sending in troops and supplies, and promising to attack the Bolsheviks “as far as my guns can reach”. In January 1919, he was succeeded in command by Rear-Admiral Walter Cowan.
    The Japanese, concerned about their northern border, sent the largest military force, numbering about 70,000. They desired the establishment of a buffer state in Siberia, and the Imperial Japanese Army General Staff viewed the situation in Russia as an opportunity for settling Japan’s “northern problem”. The Japanese government was also intensely hostile to communism.
    The Italians created the special “Corpo di Spedizione” with Alpini troops sent from Italy and ex-POWs of Italian ethnicity from the former Austro-Hungarian army who were recruited to the Italian Legione Redenta. They were initially based in the Italian Concession in Tientsin and numbered about 2,500.
    Romania, Greece, Poland, China, and Serbia also sent contingents in support of the intervention.”
    All these troops have been involved, in a way or another, in the Russian Civil War, but by 1920 all have been withdrawn. Only the Japanese stayed in the Maritime Provinces of the Russian Far East until 1922 and in northern Sakhalin until 1925.

    There is obviously no space here to talk about the ‘Treaty of Rapallo’ between Russia and Germany of 1922 and of the ‘Genoa Conference’ held in Genoa in 1922, where “the representatives of 34 countries gathered to discuss global economic problems following World War I. The purpose was to formulate strategies to rebuild central and eastern Europe, particularly Russia, after the war, and also to negotiate a relationship between European capitalist economies, and the new Russian Bolshevik regime”. These were signals for the introduction of NEP (New Economic Policy) and the policy of ‘concessions’ which was, in Lenin’s terms ” a strategic retreat from socialism”.
    Anyhow, I think that a BA is a minimum requirement in order to gain a modicum of understanding of these problems. For sure Wikipedia is not sufficient.

It extended from the eastern pale, or demarcation line, to the western Russian border with the Kingdom of Prussia (later the German Empire) and with Austria-Hungary.”
    One would stop then wonder why all display that pathological hatred of Russia and Russians and the desire to harm her no matter what, as retribution for the imagined ‘persecutions’ they supposedly endured.

    Maybe because I was educated in a different country I was very well aware of this item of information. It was not only the US, then most of the Western countries from both sides of WW1, including Britain, France, Italy, then also Czechoslovakia (Austria-Hungary), Japan, Germany and so on, which sent troops to Russia on the side of Belaya Gvardiya fighting the Lenin's Bolsheviks, even whilst WW1 was still ongoing. They fought with Belaya Gvardiya in Siberia, Ukraine and Crimea (part of Russia, not part of Ukraine until 1953 when given to Ukraine by the Communist leader Nikita Khrushchev).

    This is possibly the best reference about this second, less well known, part of WW1: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_movement

    The US contingent was supposed to support the Siberain Army https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siberian_Army but shipped back without fighting.

    There is no question the involvement of U.S. troops in Russia following the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 is downplayed in the U.S. As I noted, the issue wasn’t touched on in my high school history class, and I was surprised to learn of our military involvement in Russia’s civil war only when I went to college and bought the small paperback of Kennan’s “Russia and the West Under Lenin and Stalin.” In fact, I have a one-volume history of the U.S. written by one of the U.S.’s leading historians, Samuel Eliot Morison, who was the highly acclaimed biographer of Christopher Columbus and John Paul Jones and a long-time professor of history at Harvard. He was also the author of the highly acclaimed “History of the United States Naval Operations in World War II,” a 15-volume effort. In his “The Oxford History of the American People” (1965, 1122 pages, ending with the 1963 assassination of JFK), he states briefly at p. 878 that “President Wilson went along [with efforts of France and Britain to overthrow the Bolsheviks] to the extent of sending a small American force to Archangel, ostensibly to prevent a cache of military supplies reaching Germany, and participating in a Japanese-directed invasion of Siberia, to see that Japan did not go too far.” Rather cryptic reference to a somewhat small military involvement that lasted for more than a year and a half, but, in defense of Morison, his history was a one-volume affair (published by the Oxford University Press) and the American involvement in Russia had no effect on the Russian Revolution, other than to sour the relationship between the new Communist government and the U.S., which did not diplomatically recognize the new regime until FDR became President in 1933.

    A. Scott Berg has no such defense. His detailed biography of Wilson runs to 743 pages, and he makes no reference at all to the U.S. military contingent that was sent to Russia in 1918 by Wilson and remained there for more than a year and a half. You would think that Berg could have added a few brief sentences alluding to the military expeditionary force and a brief summary of its impact, but not a word. This from an author who discusses the infamous “Palmer raids” at the end of the Wilson Administration and the bombs which set off those raids. I am just puzzled about the omission and fail to see what agenda is being served, other than it highlights the utter hypocrisy of Wilson with his vaunted “Fourteen Points,” which impliedly called for respect of international borders. Wilson was also the hypocrite who won reelection in a close race in 1916 running on a campaign that “he kept us out of war” and the declared war against Germany a month after he was reinaugurated in March 1917.

    After Maxwell, Browder switched allegiance to Edmond Safra, a very rich Jewish banker of Lebanese origin... The banker’s name has been connected to Mossad: increasingly fearful for his life, Safra surrounded himself by Mossad-trained gunmen. This did not help him: he died a horrible death in his bathroom when his villa was torched by one of the guards.
     
    Safra's widow has had an interesting life ... various patterns emerge ... from wikipedia

    Lily Safra (née Watkins) is a Brazilian philanthropist and socialite who attained considerable wealth through her four marriages. By March 2013, her net worth was estimated at $1.2 billion; according to Forbes, she is one of the richest people in the world. Safra has a significant art collection and owns the historic Villa Leopolda on the French Riviera.

    Safra was born Lily Watkins on December 30, 1934, in Porto Alegre, Brazil, daughter of Wolf White Watkins, a Czechoslovak railway engineer who moved to South America, and Annita Noudelman de Castro, a Uruguayan of Russian-Jewish ancestry. She grew up in Rio de Janeiro but moved with her family to Uruguay.

    At the age of 17, she met and married Mario Cohen, an Argentine hosiery magnate of Italian-Jewish descent. They had three children: Claudio, Eduardo, and Adriana. (Claudio died with his three-year-old son in a car crash in Brazil ca. 1989.) Lily and Cohen divorced in the early 1960s.

    In 1965, she married Alfredo "Freddy" Monteverde, (formerly Greenberg). He was a Romanian Jewish immigrant who fled Europe in 1939 because of Nazi Germany's persecution of Jews. He was a leader in the Brazilian household appliance distribution business, where he established the Ponto Frio brand. He and Lily adopted a child, named Carlos. In 1969, Monteverde committed suicide. According to biographer Isabel Vincent, Monteverde left all his assets to his wife.

    One month after her husband's death, Lily Monteverde moved to London. Her late husband's banker, Edmond Safra, helped her secure control over her late spouse's entire fortune. She dated Safra for some time but the romance ended. Her family, who is of Ashkenazi Jewish descent, did not approve of her relationship with Safra, who was of Sephardic Jewish descent.

    In 1972, Monteverde married businessman Samuel Bendahan, also a Sephardic Jew. They separated after two weeks, and she divorced him after one year of marriage.

    In 1976, Monteverde married Edmond Safra after all.
     

    So glad to see someone noticing interesting patterns… The media have only barely scratched the surface. There’s so much more to Lily Safra, the death of her late (fourth) husband, Edmond Safra, and his connection to Russia. I hope more reporters will try to dig deeper and go beyond what powerful individuals want us to believe. The whole story has yet to emerge.

    Actually this ‘invasion’ was to help stabilize Russia during the revolution and to block Japan in the far east. Russia and the US had been good friends and allies since we helped Russia during the Crimean War, and with the purchase of Alaska and they had helped us during the US Civil War.
    Harry Truman put an end to all that ‘good neighbor policy” when he needed a scapegoat to launch the National Security State and prevent another depression. On it goes.

    Are we talking about the same Browder? If this one is the son of Earl Browder, former head of CPUSA in the thirties, we need to note that EB was born in Kansas to a farmer who was also a Methodist minister. Earl Browder was, to my knowledge, a Unitarian until he shucked religion for Communism.

    I’m sure Wichita, Kansas in 1891 was just like the Pale of Settlement. If anything Browder was one of the few CPUSA leaders who didn’t come from a Jewish background, but if your mantra is “the Jew is the Communist and the Communist is the Jew”, that’s you ready to partake in an Einsatzgruppe in Belarus in 1941.

    I have written this before, but most US citizens think that CIA is a big bureaucracy which does secret stuff. Although this is partially true, there are also free-wheeling agents who work primarily for their own private or group interest (getting rich) and hopefully also in the Israeli and/or US national interest. Like in everything else, intelligence agencies are organised in a packing order: Mossad at the top, CIA working for Mossad, MI6 and BND working for CIA and so on. But most of the time these agencies both cooperate and compete and sometimes shaft each other (e.g. 911), from project to project.

    One small complaint within a great article. Israel says:


    One has to recognise that the US is second to none for freedom of speech on the globe.
     
    This is a wrong interpretation of what transpired. There are two reasons why the documentary could have been shown in the US but not in EU:
    1) EU is a lower level servant of the state of Israel than the US, and
    2) EU has the most draconian libel laws (especially UK), which make stating anything about a lawyered person prepared for lawfare too risky. Nothing to do with freedom of speech.

    The most interesting, previously unknown, detail to me in this article was that Browder's grandfather was the leader of the US Communist Party. This underlines Communism as primarily a Jewish movement world-wide.

    Browder, Browder, let’s see now, I knew I’d heard that name somewhere before.

    Seems like the entire Browder/Magnitsky hustle is nothing more than Jews protecting Jews in a kind of international crime syndicate. When found out, they even have the network in place to control the narrative about their crimes to the point that trying to hold them accountable quickly morphs into a fundamental violation of their human rights.

    “What do you mean you can’t rip off a country’s assets and hide the loot in offshore accounts? What do you do when you see a $10 bill laying in the street? You take it, of course! What else is a person suppose to do? When opportunity strikes, you make the best of it.”

    Browder and Magnitshy …. How history repeats itself! I recall reading that something similar happened in the Weimar Republic when Germany was stripped of its assets after WWI.

Like in everything else, intelligence agencies are organised in a packing order: Mossad at the top, CIA working for Mossad, MI6 and BND working for CIA and so on. But most of the time these agencies both cooperate and compete and sometimes shaft each other (e.g. 911), from project to project.

    One small complaint within a great article. Israel says:

    This is a wrong interpretation of what transpired. There are two reasons why the documentary could have been shown in the US but not in EU:
    1) EU is a lower level servant of the state of Israel than the US, and
    2) EU has the most draconian libel laws (especially UK), which make stating anything about a lawyered person prepared for lawfare too risky. Nothing to do with freedom of speech.

    The most interesting, previously unknown, detail to me in this article was that Browder's grandfather was the leader of the US Communist Party. This underlines Communism as primarily a Jewish movement world-wide.

    “The most interesting, previously unknown, detail to me in this article was that Browder’s grandfather was the leader of the US Communist Party. “

    That’s funny. The first thing I thought upon seeing the name and the topic was “oh good grief…could it be?’

If the Anglo-Zionists manage to bring down Russia (say, kill Putin) then Browder could become the Paul Bremer III of Russia (perhaps titled William Browder I).

    Alas, Putinist Russia is dangerous to those who would criticize Putin's regime, or Putin himself. Putin is known for using accusations of tax evasion as an excuse for seizing certain businesses. If he has to, he has no compunction about jailing the proprietors, especially if they become politically active in opposition to Putin and his greater Russian schemes. Just ask Khodorkovsky.

    “especially if they become politically active”

    Right. That was the deal. You can make money and even sort of rape to reap, but stay out of politics.

    Israel Shamir: Why do you and some commenters write about Browder being Jewish if his dad, Earl Browder of the CPUSA, was born into a Kansas Methodist farm family? What gives in your research?

    Earl Browder, born into a Kansas Methodist farm family became the head of the Communist party in the U.S. in the 30′s, probably for idealistic reasons. As a Communist, he became an atheist. He went to Russia and married a Russian Jewish woman. Their son, Felix, raised as a Jew by his mother, became a mathematician. Felix Browder married a Jewish woman and their son is the William Browder, subject of this article. William Browder is thus 3/4 Jewish. His one grandfather, from whom he got his name, was born a Christian gentile, but chucked it up to become a Communist leader. Through marriage to Jewish women, his grandson, William, is a ruthless capitalist Jewish oligarch who contributed to scavenging the decaying body of the former Soviet Union.

    Yep. Watkins is a surname in Wales amongst descendants of Flemish immigrants. Wat’s kin or son. There was a sizeable Jewish community in Wales so there may have been a marriage to a Jewish woman from Czechoslovakia that produced a son who went to his mother’s country.

    Meaning, Putin gets a healthy cut. If he doesn't get a piece of the action, you will suddenly be found to have evaded taxes, or worse. And, heaven forfend, if you decided to use your wealth to oppose Putin politically, just as Khodorkovsky.

    Seems like the entire Browder/Magnitsky hustle is nothing more than Jews protecting Jews in a kind of international crime syndicate. When found out, they even have the network in place to control the narrative about their crimes to the point that trying to hold them accountable quickly morphs into a fundamental violation of their human rights.

    "What do you mean you can't rip off a country's assets and hide the loot in offshore accounts? What do you do when you see a $10 bill laying in the street? You take it, of course! What else is a person suppose to do? When opportunity strikes, you make the best of it."

    Browder and Magnitshy .... How history repeats itself! I recall reading that something similar happened in the Weimar Republic when Germany was stripped of its assets after WWI. Indeed, even then there was an ((( international syndicate ))) in place to control the narrative and protect the shysters.

    Exactly right. Looting Russia– and later working to destroy it for objecting — is their YHWH-given right. The Jewish criminality and evil Browder embodies is of so great a magnitude that it’s difficult for a decent person to process such a creature.

    That is true but if you are arrested for drug dealing and you say that there are worse drug dealers that you but they are never arrested because they are police informers then that does not get you out of it does it? Everyone knew what the law was, and how it was enforced.

    Khodorkovsky’s organisation was responsible for several murders, and he must have known what was going on. These killings including a married couple who were ex-employee of Khodorkovsky, someone who sued Khodorkovsky for a lot of money had his chauffeur killed by a booby trap bomb in his limo, a woman who refused to sell them a building was shot dead and a Moscow female official had an attempt made on her life after she caused trouble for Khodorkovsky. Most notoriously the mayor of a town where Khodorkovsky had acquired exposure to back taxes started camping outside the Khodorkovsky company office to embarrass them. He was shot dead one month later.

    Browder was more subtle but according to Wikipedia “Magnitsky was a Russian tax accountant who specialized in anti-corruption activities. “. Most tax accountants I know of specialise in tax avoidance and dabble in the legal gray area around criminal tax evasion. In Russia you must bribe the receptionist to get an appointment with the doctor, and I don’t suppose in prison the doctors are very good even by the relaxed standards of Russian medical practice.

    Thank you thank you thank you for posting this.
    I watched the whole thing. Kept me up until way past my bedtime!
    Fascinating. I didn't know what to expect, although I had read some comments regarding the "docudrama" within the documentary. I seem to recall some comments to the effect that this aspect of the film was confusing. I didn't find it confusing at all. In fact, I found it very ooriginal and creative, and it also hehped show Nekrasov's intellectual and creative evolution, as he (reluctantly) assumed the role of investigative reporter. It is also a good way to keep Browder's story before the viewer, for comparison. Nekrasov brought his and his team's formidable skills to bear in setting up both the docudrama and the documentary aspects of the film. Also in laying bare for the viewer his thinking process as he progresses further down the rabbit hole of Browder's machinations and fabrications. Surely a Russian-speaking inquisitive documentarian was the last thing Browder would have wanted to deal with. But maybe it is a token of Browder's hubris to think that he could get away with fooling a Russian film maker---one who would be able to read the original documents and compare them to Browder's narrative. Browder certainly underestimated Nekrasov.

    It bothers me that Nekrasov is an avowed Putin opponent. But he seems to be that rarity, a man of honor and truth seeking---wherever it leads. Not sure where it led in the case of Litvinenko, and I certainly would like to see that film.

    I wish that Ron Unz would archive both this film and also Alex Krainer's book "The Killing of William Browder" (not the best title, IMHO) at this site. Perhaps he can purchase the rights to the book.

    I am kind of surprised that there are no other reader comments on this film.

    Thank you, Robin. I feel a little bit foolish because I posted a comment -- number 153 -- wondering why the Browder video wasn't available online. Then I come to discover, immediately after clicking the "publish this comment" button, that you had in fact put it up online. Right on this website, right in this comment stream. Kudos to you, brother.

    Now, you could do the internet world a favor, by mounting it up as a BitTorrent, then we won't have to worry about anyone being able to take it down.

    Also, I'd like to know how to download the video as a file to my computer. Could you throw me a link in your reply, pointing to a way to do that?

    "Safra was shot and killed while in his 5 star hotel room in Paris."

    Where did you get that? It's known that he died in a fire in Monaco. But that's irrelevant. The important thing is BILL BROWDER, and right now, not decades ago. Struck with the fear of being questioned by Russians, Browder is hysterically doing all the talk shows, where he's given license to cement his lies in the American consciousness.

    What you [not you personally, but the collective "you"] have to appreciate is that Browder is a strategic pressure point. Expose his lies, and Russiagate unravels. He's on record lying, including his deposition under oath. He's on record contradicting himself. See #Browdergate

  137. Dear Mister Shamir,

    Thank. an excellent article. I wish I could find the film “The Magnitsky Act- Behind The Scenes.”

    I strongly suggest that if one wishes to understand the historical background of such an oligarchical financial elite and the why a United States Senator John McCain would be a jurisprudential catalyst for the Magnitsky Act and anti-President Vladimir Vladimirovitch Putin propaganda,as well as anti-President Donald John Trump I can not highly recommend enough the following important work from 2008 which was originally intended as a warning against Federal Senator McCain’s presidential run as well as United States Senator Barack Hussein Obama :

    “Guilt By Association : How Deception And Self Deceit Took America To War” by Attorney-At-Law Jeff Gates. Herein the author explains to us the closed economic system created by the oligarch mobsters aided and abetted by President Boris Yeltsin but not only its precedents begininng with the supply side economics of President Ronald Reagan creating the system that saved the banks and others of high finance during the 2008-2009 financial depression and it foresees why President Trump would be against the North American Free Trade Agreement of President Bill Clinton which instead of helping Mexicans just impoverished towns and villages causing the thousands of migrants to North America and creating the same oligarchization in Mexico as in Russia. Also the true organized crime historical origins,and let me tell you,the majority certainly do not have Italian family names as Hollywood and popular culture would have you believe.

    Thank God someone is finally writing a story on this OBVIOUS crook. He's a protected crook.

    He got his "seed" money to go into Russia from Edmond Safra. Safra is a banker and was rumored to have laundered the drug running money during the Iran Contra scandal. Safra was shot and killed while in his 5 star hotel room in Paris. No one ever prosecuted. This Browder is stinky, stinky, stinky, but probably working for the security agencies.

    Safra died in his home in Monaco, suffocated by the fumes of a fire. You should have simply consult the Wikipedia to learn what was well-known since 1999.

    “In 1996 Safra was co-founder of Hermitage Capital Management which became one of the most important investment companies in Russia and later became famous in connection with the Sergei Magnitsky affair”.

    Are we talking about the same Browder? If this one is the son of Earl Browder, former head of CPUSA in the thirties, we need to note that EB was born in Kansas to a farmer who was also a Methodist minister. Earl Browder was, to my knowledge, a Unitarian until he shucked religion for Communism.

    Earl is his grandfather. His father was a math professor.

    Dear Mister/Miss Robin G.,

    Thank you for your REPLY which directed me to the excellent investigative reporting film by Mister Andrei Nekrasov,"The Magnitsky Act-Behind The Scenes". That such a simple but profound film should cause fear and trepidation and that Mister William Felix Browder can wield such power to prevent the British Parliament from viewing it and others of Europe and sabotage the screening of it in the United States just goes to show that we aren't as free as we think. Up to a point one has liberty, but beware, open up a Pandora's Box and then one mysteriously passes away. It is necessary to cross every T and dot every i when involved in these investigations. And this isn't paranoia on my part. There are many who are a part of the realm of Powers and Principalities who are laden with terror. We give them great fright ,we, who only want the truth and the eradication of their evil deeds that cause suffering of all kinds including the insanity of war.

    Once again thank you. I've two questions that perhaps you or another might be able to answer : Can one obtain a digital video disk of this film and where might one contact its director Mister Nekrasov?

    God Bless,
    The Vortex

    Thank you thank you thank you for posting this.
    I watched the whole thing. Kept me up until way past my bedtime!
    Fascinating. I didn’t know what to expect, although I had read some comments regarding the “docudrama” within the documentary. I seem to recall some comments to the effect that this aspect of the film was confusing. I didn’t find it confusing at all. In fact, I found it very ooriginal and creative, and it also hehped show Nekrasov’s intellectual and creative evolution, as he (reluctantly) assumed the role of investigative reporter. It is also a good way to keep Browder’s story before the viewer, for comparison. Nekrasov brought his and his team’s formidable skills to bear in setting up both the docudrama and the documentary aspects of the film. Also in laying bare for the viewer his thinking process as he progresses further down the rabbit hole of Browder’s machinations and fabrications. Surely a Russian-speaking inquisitive documentarian was the last thing Browder would have wanted to deal with. But maybe it is a token of Browder’s hubris to think that he could get away with fooling a Russian film maker—one who would be able to read the original documents and compare them to Browder’s narrative. Browder certainly underestimated Nekrasov.

    It bothers me that Nekrasov is an avowed Putin opponent. But he seems to be that rarity, a man of honor and truth seeking—wherever it leads. Not sure where it led in the case of Litvinenko, and I certainly would like to see that film.

    I wish that Ron Unz would archive both this film and also Alex Krainer’s book “The Killing of William Browder” (not the best title, IMHO) at this site. Perhaps he can purchase the rights to the book.

    I am kind of surprised that there are no other reader comments on this film.

I don’t know ... I can”t remember ...”. And then there’s the Homeland Security doofus who just took Browder’s word for everything and didn’t verify a thing. Reminded me of the SEC and Bernie Madoff. Ron Unz (pbuh) should put that film up on the front page of the site.
    , @Jeff Davis
    At 1 hour and 18 minutes into the film Nekrasov confronts Browder with the evidence against him. He doesn't do it overtly, that is, straight on, as in j'accuse, but rather acts kind of coy, asking his questions about the "problems" of fact that he has discovered. Asking his questions as if he were confused, and hoped Mr. Browder could provide some clarification.

    Mr. Browder figures out straightaway that he's been busted. A realization that is easy for him, since he has had perfect consciousness of his guilt from the moment he began planning the crime. Now we see him awakening abruptly to the realization that the man he hired to make the cover-up film has discovered the truth that the film was meant to conceal.

    Look at his face, see the tension there. Listen to his voice crack -- at 1:22:30 -- as his throat locks up and his mouth gets dry. Then for the next 26 seconds Browder offers a straight-up lie, that the original registration documents are necessary to re-register the companies. He then watches, to see if Nekrasov buys it, and then... seeing that Nekrasov doesn't buy it -- he gulps visibly under the tension -- understanding in that moment that he's been busted. It's an amazing moment caught on video. It's not a stretch to conclude that you are watching a man see his life pass in front of his eyes. And then finally we watch as Browder stands and threatens Nekrasov with reputational destruction.
    At 1:23:45, Browder says -- threatens actually -- "I'd be really careful about going out and trying to do a whole thing about Sergie not being a whistleblower, it's not gonna do well for your credibility in the show."

    I love that he calls it "a show".

    Powerful stuff

    RobinG posted the original Nekrasov film (2 hours essential viewing) on the Browder/Magnitsky story. Nekrasov is a lefty counter-cultural type who had what Shamir calls a “Road to Damascus moment” (after checking the original Russian documents + some interviews).

    Incredible--well, not really--that our mainstream media resolutely refuses to print, much less discuss, the two main pieces of information here:

    1. Browder was the one who gained most from Magnitsky's death as evidenced by the interview in which the latter asserted a fear of being killed by Browder.

    2. Nekrasov, the film's director, has a history of making films very critical of Putin and the Russian government and state.

    US media coverage either omits any mention of these two points or buries allusions to them in the article. The NYT piece on Browder's attempt to block the film's screening at the Newseum in Washington was filed in the "Europe" section of the paper.

    Freedom of speech is under assault in the West and, again and again, we see the common denominator of these despicable efforts to suppress key information.

    Is it possible that the NYT and Washington Post are scrubbing its own stories on this film?
    The link in the main article about the film screening in Washington seems to have disappeared.
    there was an earlier version linking a Washington Post article on June 13, 2016, also now unavailable

    I’m posting this comment as a reply to the very first comment to this piece because, if I posted it as an independent comment it would ***only*** appear as comment number 153, and thus less likely to be noticed than a reply to the very first comment to the original publication, which first appeared in June of 2016.

    I find it astonishing — okay, maybe just surprising — that Browder has succeeded in suppressing the documentary made by Nekrasov. A single copy of that video documentary, converted to digital form and mounted on the internet would be unstoppable.

    I get all my video media by downloading from BitTorrent sites. Once something is loaded in BitTorrent form, it’s on the internet forever. While it is not impossible to attack a BitTorrent distribution, it is nevertheless very difficult — nearly impossible — to succeed in expunging anything mounted on this distributed file-sharing vehicle. This distributed application file-sharing vehicle — which by the way is what enables the newly emerging and unstoppable cryptocurrency phenomenon — stores its files, chopped into little pieces, on thousands of personal computers distributed across the planet. Taking anything down that is mounted on the internet in this way is impossible short of shutting down the entire internet. Not gonna happen.

    Now mounting the Browder video on the BitTorrent system does not provide a mechanism for compensating the owner/creator of the video. That said, if it is done in the public interest, there is nothing stopping someone from creating a crowdfunding effort to pay the author and the distributor for their efforts.

    So, if anyone can offer a reason why this video is not yet available free and online, I’d like to hear it, because it puzzles me that it hasn’t yet happened.

    Someone who knows how to do it, has got to put the Andrei Nekrasov everywhere. Unbelievable. Congress is useless. Browder's lies are in accord with what the US wants to do. He is protected. No doubt about it.

    The Real BILL BROWDER Story...
    ...the film by Andrei Nekrasov
    https://www.bitchute.com/video/lQ3qEwX66pIL/
    THE MAGNITSKY ACT – BEHIND THE SCENES
    (about 2 hours long)

    Thank you, Robin. I feel a little bit foolish because I posted a comment — number 153 — wondering why the Browder video wasn’t available online. Then I come to discover, immediately after clicking the “publish this comment” button, that you had in fact put it up online. Right on this website, right in this comment stream. Kudos to you, brother.

    Now, you could do the internet world a favor, by mounting it up as a BitTorrent, then we won’t have to worry about anyone being able to take it down.

    Also, I’d like to know how to download the video as a file to my computer. Could you throw me a link in your reply, pointing to a way to do that?

    Again, “YOU THE MAN!

    Him and countless others of his kind

    Along came a Pharaoh who knew not Joseph…

    ‘His second mistake was being too greedy. Russian taxation is very low; but Browder did not want to pay even this low tax’

    No comment

    ‘Mr Browder does not deny these accusations; he says there is nothing criminal in trying to avoid taxes’

    Well that’s alright then

    ‘For this reason alone, Browder can be counted as a part of the power which eternally wills evil and eternally works good’

    And for other ethnic reasons of course.

    ‘Nobody listened to them, until they demanded that Browder testify under oath. He refused.’

    Mala fides anyone?

    ‘The New Republic wondered: if Browder was indeed the victim of persecution in Russia and had enlisted the U.S. justice system to right the balance, why was he so reluctant to offer his sworn testimony in an American courtroom?’

    You know when you are a Jewish financial criminal and even The New Republic is against you you may have gone too far…

    Yup

    ‘Much bigger sums were transferred via good services of Brothers Ziff, mega-rich Jewish American businessmen’

    Didn’t I see this on an episode of the Simpsons?

    ‘Almost all involved figures appear to be Jewish, not only Browder’

    Stereotype threat

    ‘Even his enemy, the beneficiary of the scam that (according to Browder) took over his Russian assets is another Jewish businessman Dennis Katsiv’

    You just couldn’t make it up could you?

    ‘Maxwell stole a few million dollars from his company pension fund before dying in mysterious circumstances on board of his yacht in the Atlantic’

    He stole hundreds of millions after breaking the back of the print unions and then stealing the pensions of the workers who remained. Amongst other things he used the money to float Mossad and bankroll the victory parade after the first gulf war. His children and wife were never required to make restitution even though they received considerable inheritances.

    ‘He was given a code name Solomon, as he worked for Salomon Brothers’

    I re-watched that section where he threatens Nekrasov.
    Because, after Browder stood up, he was partly blocking the camera view and it was a bit unclear.

    So, who are Browder's enforcers? Who can ensure that Krainer's book and Nekrasov's film are "disappeared"? That screenings of the film are suddenly canceled?
    Is there any way to approach this legally? For instance, who canceled the showing of the film in NYC? Can that be established? Was someone threatened in the same vein the Browder threatens Nekrasov?
    After showing, in the docudrama segments of the film, the unpleasant deaths of the three guys who (I think) were the recipients of Browder's company's assets, I do hope that Nekrasov is watching hiw own back.

    Browder has reinvented himself as an advocate for "human rights" in Russia. So, in our upside-down world, Putin in a thug, Russia is a kleptocracy, and Browder is a "human rights advocate." What a sick joke. the soon this guy and his story can be blown, the better.

    Maybe we can "exchange" Browder for Assange. Browder gets to stay here in the West, and Assange is transferred to Russia.

    Thank you thank you thank you for posting this.
    I watched the whole thing. Kept me up until way past my bedtime!
    Fascinating. I didn't know what to expect, although I had read some comments regarding the "docudrama" within the documentary. I seem to recall some comments to the effect that this aspect of the film was confusing. I didn't find it confusing at all. In fact, I found it very ooriginal and creative, and it also hehped show Nekrasov's intellectual and creative evolution, as he (reluctantly) assumed the role of investigative reporter. It is also a good way to keep Browder's story before the viewer, for comparison. Nekrasov brought his and his team's formidable skills to bear in setting up both the docudrama and the documentary aspects of the film. Also in laying bare for the viewer his thinking process as he progresses further down the rabbit hole of Browder's machinations and fabrications. Surely a Russian-speaking inquisitive documentarian was the last thing Browder would have wanted to deal with. But maybe it is a token of Browder's hubris to think that he could get away with fooling a Russian film maker---one who would be able to read the original documents and compare them to Browder's narrative. Browder certainly underestimated Nekrasov.

    It bothers me that Nekrasov is an avowed Putin opponent. But he seems to be that rarity, a man of honor and truth seeking---wherever it leads. Not sure where it led in the case of Litvinenko, and I certainly would like to see that film.

    I wish that Ron Unz would archive both this film and also Alex Krainer's book "The Killing of William Browder" (not the best title, IMHO) at this site. Perhaps he can purchase the rights to the book.

    I am kind of surprised that there are no other reader comments on this film.

    At 1 hour and 18 minutes into the film Nekrasov confronts Browder with the evidence against him. He doesn’t do it overtly, that is, straight on, as in j’accuse, but rather acts kind of coy, asking his questions about the “problems” of fact that he has discovered. Asking his questions as if he were confused, and hoped Mr. Browder could provide some clarification.

    Mr. Browder figures out straightaway that he’s been busted. A realization that is easy for him, since he has had perfect consciousness of his guilt from the moment he began planning the crime. Now we see him awakening abruptly to the realization that the man he hired to make the cover-up film has discovered the truth that the film was meant to conceal.

    Look at his face, see the tension there. Listen to his voice crack — at 1:22:30 — as his throat locks up and his mouth gets dry. Then for the next 26 seconds Browder offers a straight-up lie, that the original registration documents are necessary to re-register the companies. He then watches, to see if Nekrasov buys it, and then… seeing that Nekrasov doesn’t buy it — he gulps visibly under the tension — understanding in that moment that he’s been busted. It’s an amazing moment caught on video. It’s not a stretch to conclude that you are watching a man see his life pass in front of his eyes. And then finally we watch as Browder stands and threatens Nekrasov with reputational destruction.
    At 1:23:45, Browder says — threatens actually — “I’d be really careful about going out and trying to do a whole thing about Sergie not being a whistleblower, it’s not gonna do well for your credibility in the show.”

    I love that he calls it “a show”.

    The author is great, nothing short of it. Very comprehensive article. Really good.

    But isn’t it true that a Congress should not pass legislation solely on the strength of the testimony of someone convicted of a crime by this country or any other country. Would any jurors do what Congress has done? All Congress had to do is scratch the surface of this testimony to see that it was stinky. Obviously, they did not look. They simply voted. Not only is the Executive Branch usurping all the powers of Congress, Congress has also surrendered all its powers, as well as duties. It fills me with disgust. What is wrong with these people.

    "Safra was shot and killed while in his 5 star hotel room in Paris."

    Where did you get that? It's known that he died in a fire in Monaco. But that's irrelevant. The important thing is BILL BROWDER, and right now, not decades ago. Struck with the fear of being questioned by Russians, Browder is hysterically doing all the talk shows, where he's given license to cement his lies in the American consciousness.

    What you [not you personally, but the collective "you"] have to appreciate is that Browder is a strategic pressure point. Expose his lies, and Russiagate unravels. He's on record lying, including his deposition under oath. He's on record contradicting himself. See #Browdergate

    Quick message about STAYING FOCUSED on #Browdergate

    You are correct. I am mistaken. He died in a fire at his home in Monaco under mysterious circumstances. His “nurse” who was a Green Beret was supposed to have done it.

    I'm posting this comment as a reply to the very first comment to this piece because, if I posted it as an independent comment it would ***only*** appear as comment number 153, and thus less likely to be noticed than a reply to the very first comment to the original publication, which first appeared in June of 2016.

    I find it astonishing -- okay, maybe just surprising -- that Browder has succeeded in suppressing the documentary made by Nekrasov. A single copy of that video documentary, converted to digital form and mounted on the internet would be unstoppable.

    I get all my video media by downloading from BitTorrent sites. Once something is loaded in BitTorrent form, it's on the internet forever. While it is not impossible to attack a BitTorrent distribution, it is nevertheless very difficult -- nearly impossible -- to succeed in expunging anything mounted on this distributed file-sharing vehicle. This distributed application file-sharing vehicle -- which by the way is what enables the newly emerging and unstoppable cryptocurrency phenomenon -- stores its files, chopped into little pieces, on thousands of personal computers distributed across the planet. Taking anything down that is mounted on the internet in this way is impossible short of shutting down the entire internet. Not gonna happen.

    Now mounting the Browder video on the BitTorrent system does not provide a mechanism for compensating the owner/creator of the video. That said, if it is done in the public interest, there is nothing stopping someone from creating a crowdfunding effort to pay the author and the distributor for their efforts.

    So, if anyone can offer a reason why this video is not yet available free and online, I'd like to hear it, because it puzzles me that it hasn't yet happened.

    Someone who knows how to do it, has got to put the Andrei Nekrasov everywhere. Unbelievable. Congress is useless. Browder’s lies are in accord with what the US wants to do. He is protected. No doubt about it.

    THE MAGNITSKY ACT - BEHIND THE SCENES

    Dear Mister/Miss Robin G.,

    Thank you for your REPLY which directed me to the excellent investigative reporting film by Mister Andrei Nekrasov,”The Magnitsky Act-Behind The Scenes”. That such a simple but profound film should cause fear and trepidation and that Mister William Felix Browder can wield such power to prevent the British Parliament from viewing it and others of Europe and sabotage the screening of it in the United States just goes to show that we aren’t as free as we think. Up to a point one has liberty, but beware, open up a Pandora’s Box and then one mysteriously passes away. It is necessary to cross every T and dot every i when involved in these investigations. And this isn’t paranoia on my part. There are many who are a part of the realm of Powers and Principalities who are laden with terror. We give them great fright ,we, who only want the truth and the eradication of their evil deeds that cause suffering of all kinds including the insanity of war.

    Once again thank you. I’ve two questions that perhaps you or another might be able to answer : Can one obtain a digital video disk of this film and where might one contact its director Mister Nekrasov?

    God Bless,

    Mr. Nekrasov’s documentary makes it crystal clear Browder has duped the fawning US Congress. Browder is both a liar and, more importantly, a murderer. It seems everyone who was involved with hiding his assets for him have died. How convenient for Mr. Browder in that they cannot testify against him. Magnitsky, as it turns out, was never a “brilliant lawyer” hired to look into lost taxes paid, but instead was a long-time accountant for Browder’s Hermitage Fund. Browder has used his death as a way to exonerate him from paying taxes owed to the Russian government. Browder should spend the rest of his life in a Russian prison, not be hailed as a human rights hero.

    Good Question. You are onto something. Meanwhile, there’s big discussion with many useful links under Giraldi’s Is Bill Browder the Most Dangerous Man in the World?

    Also, this comment by Geokat. (I think Torstein is one of the makers. He might know about getting a dvd. Let us know what you find out.)

    If Unzers are unable to access the film, The Magnitzky Act: Behind The scenes, there is a fallback position:

    All you have to do is send email to this address [email protected] requesting a personalized link and you will be provided with an email response that includes a link to the Vimeo movie. When you click on the link it will ask you for a password. You will have to provide a mobile phone number (incl. country code) for delivery of your password by SMS / Signal / Telegram / WhatsApp. All this information will be provided in the email response you receive.

    I realize there is a bit of effort involved in procuring the film, but if you are interested in this story and how Cold War 2.0 was kicked off, it is well worth the effort.

    Sorry, yes, it is Frank Sheeran, and the title is "I Heard You Paint Houses."

    This is really a fascinating book, with "oral history" by Sheeran, on his military service, working on the docks, gradually becoming involved with the Teamsters, and becoming Hoffa's most trusted associate---even friend.
    At the same time, Brandt provides an in-depth background on Hoffa's early involvement with the Teamsters and building up of the union, his early ideals---he truly did fight for the working man---and how, in the stew of American politics, things went in the wrong direction. Valuable social and cultural and historical commentary. Furthermore, Sheeran, despite being called a sociopath by some Amazon reviewers (and I don't really quibble, just saying), is a sympathetic character who perfectly understood the "rules" of the world he ended up inhabiting---once you are in it, you cannot leave, except feet first---but only partially grasped how they linked to the rest of the corrupt American scene. As for "sociopaths," let's not sling that term around without including all of the sociopaths who inhabit the American "elites."

    Regarding the movie supposedly being made of this book, I don't expect it to tell the whole story, but Scorsese may surprise.

    Read this book! It is a great read! You will learn a hell of a lot.

    But isn't it true that a Congress should not pass legislation solely on the strength of the testimony of someone convicted of a crime by this country or any other country. Would any jurors do what Congress has done? All Congress had to do is scratch the surface of this testimony to see that it was stinky. Obviously, they did not look. They simply voted. Not only is the Executive Branch usurping all the powers of Congress, Congress has also surrendered all its powers, as well as duties. It fills me with disgust. What is wrong with these people.
