The Curious Case Of Bill Browder

Authored by Tom Luongo,

“Deserve’s got nuthin’ to do with it.”

— William Munny, Unforgiven

A couple of weeks ago I told you the first U.S. Civil War was here.

What I didn’t tell you was the face of that Civil War is Bill Browder.

Browder was responsible for The Magnitsky Act. It handed our government insane sanctions powers on individuals and companies in the name of punishing rogue, evil regimes who torture innocents.

His story is the thing of spy novels.  It reeks of power politics, market collusion and psychopathology.

And if only half of it is true, he and his associates deserve a fate worse than anything dreamed up by Dante and his Inferno.

Putin tried him in absentia for $230 million in tax evasion. Browder talks about Putin’s global reach, but men like him are the real power brokers: shaping policy, moving markets and destroying lives the world over.

Their current target is President Trump.

Let’s connect some dots:

First, Facebook, to salvage its stock price, finds new “PROOF” of Russian election meddling, from the same troll farm Robert Mueller indicted in February.

Second, two days later, Lindsay Graham has a shiny new sanctions bill to get ‘tough on Putin to stop meddling.’

Graham‘s bill will:

1) Cut Russia off from selling sovereign debt,

2) Stop them from funding any energy project the world over

3) Force a two-thirds majority vote before the Trump can pull the U.S. out of NATO.

All to stop election meddling?????

That last part is “curious.” 

Trump hasn’t talked about leaving NATO. So, why is Lindsay got his panties in a bunch over this?

This bill blatantly interferes with the President’s job to pursue foreign policy.

It is unconstitutional and, ultimately, unenforceable.

Graham knows this.  He and McCain will ram it through committee anyway.

There’s a second bill ordering Trump to sanction all companies working on the Nordstream 2 pipeline.

Because Russia isn’t allowed to get rich and Europe isn’t allowed to be free of NATO’s control.

This is Congress over-stepping their bounds to implement a soft coup against the President.

This is espionage, if not treason.

I cover a lot of this in this 6-minute video.

Browder knows Trump will throw him to the Russian Bear if it can avert a war.

To go further, however, we have to go to Istanbul.

Turkish Prison No More

Trump is pushing Turkey and Germany into the arms of Russia through sanctions and tariffs.  It’s counter-intuitive, but so is Trump.  You break NATO not by pulling out yourself but by giving Turkey and Germany every reason to.

Treat them like dirt and they will declare independence.

Hmmm. Turkey froze U.S. diplomat assets after the we sanctioned them for not returning Pastor Brunson, a CIA operative.

When was the last time someone froze the assets of a U.S. Diplomat?  A NATO ally no less?

Then Turkey announces Yuan-denominated bonds to wean itself off the U.S. dollar. 

Both China and Turkey announce they will buy more Iranian oil after sanctions are reinstated.

China joins Turkey in stopping the U.S.’s planned balkanization of Syria by announcing military support to oust the last of the rebels in Idlib province.

If Aleppo was the Battle of the Syrian Bulge, Idlib is the March to Jihadist Berlin.

There may be a method to Trump’s madness here.

The End of History

And this is connected to Browder’s campaign to destroy Russia.  Russia is the key to China’s future.  Without Russia, there is no Chinese century.

Guys like Browder use these post-WWII institutions — The IMF, World Bank, NATO and the EU — as sources of ‘perfect trades’ for themselves which impoverish nations, kill millions and maintain their power.

They aren’t great investors.  They are piranha who fed off the corpse of the Soviet Union. They still want Russia’s vast mineral and energy wealth for themselves.

Trump’s goal, to right the wrongs of world affairs, is the destruction of NATO and the EU.

Their goal is to stay in power and out of prison.  In Browder’s case the worst prison in Russia.

“Men” like Lindsay Graham and John McCain are placed to protect them at every turn.

But Trump is vulnerable.

The Mid-Term’s the Thing

More sanctions signals these mid-terms are their last stand against Trump.  They reek of desperation.
They know the poll numbers.  They know the Senate map is against them.

Trump’s approval rating is 50%.

He’s up double digits, nearing 50%, with Hispanics.

He could pick up at a minimum eight Senate seats, while McCain, Feinstein and others are put out to pasture.

China outed their agent in Feinstein’s office this week to weaken her.

The Deep State needs control of Congress to impeach Trump.  It needs the Senate to block him in committee.

His support from the people and the military are his bulwark against impeachment.

From here to November it will be all Russia all the time from the GOP and the DNC.

Return of the Chaos

The markets will be choppy because of this.  Investors won’t know who is winning from one day to the next.  But, some signals are already clear.

The dollar is rising as the world gets to cash.  Rates are rising.  Gold is falling.  Bitcoin got whacked.  Trade wars loom. Net short open interest on Gold and U.S. Treasuries are at record levels.

The Bank of Japan is losing control of its bond markets.  The euro sits on support.  China is actively devaluing the Yuan.

And Browder is beginning to panic.  That’s the most curious signal yet for a man who’s supposed to be a champion of human rights.

as Wyatt Earp said....

 

Theres only one way to deal with these people...Kill em all

 

bill browder, clapper, brennan, mueller, comey, soros, rothschild, cheney, all of them...ALL OF THEM

 

Just think how much of an immediate improvement the world would experience if they were instantly removed.

 

Its obvious thousands of indictments arent forthcoming. That would be too great a change, too much shadow government and deep state resistance.

 

No, its going to take something more drastic. They are pushing and pushing. At some point soon, the public will snap- en mass, simultaneously...and our current system moves too slowly to contain the pent up energy about to be released..

There are ties to Browder which should be examined in more detail.

Not only is Steele part of this shady group but there are ties with Alexander Litvinenko, Boris Berezovsky, Alexander Perepelichny (who all meet thier untimely deaths) around Bill Browder (directly/indirectly)”

As Browder responds with “I do not recall” and “I do not know” on any substantial inquiry in the court, the US judiciary could be very interested in hearing Perepelichny. This menace to Magnitsky Act was eliminated one week before the bill passed the US House: on Nov 10, 2012 Alexander Perepelichny was found dead outside his mansion in London. The police investigation did not bring any tangible result but the theory of “Russian mafia” involved was timely injected into the international media. One month later Magnitsky Act was signed by president Obama…

Some more connections:

Most readers will identify Bill Broder with Hermitage Capital, but few will recall that the investment firm was also funded by one Beny Steimetz, the Israeli oligarch and financier just arrested (August 14) by Israeli and Swiss anti-corruption officials for widescale fraud and money laundering. The Russia privatization shark who was once Israel’s richest man is a subject for another report. I only bring him up here to point at two facets of this war on Putin. First, the Jewish connection in all this is something that just needs to come out. Secondly, the ring of profiteers bent on Putin’s demise all have gigantic skeletons in their wardrobes. A story citing one Putin hater, when investigated, always leads to ten more. This is no coincidence

"It’s the American tax Payer who isn’t allowed to be free of Europe’s control via NATO."

Exactly.  Someone, remind me again why the US taxpayer is still footing the bill to defend Europe from "communist aggression," esp. since WW-II ended nearly 3/4s of century ago, and the Berlin Wall fell nearly 3 decades ago?  It's past high time for the useless bureaucracy that is NATO to be dissolved.  

 

PS The fact that this Bill comes from McStain and his butt boy Graham, speaks volumes.

Yes, yes, and yes. But I will remind you sir the reason is quite simple. Someone needs to make the sausage, and battle for supremacy. The fiatskies can never be spread to thin, or the entire shitshow folds like a cheap suit.

As the great Law of Physics is fond of pointing out, full faith and credit bitchez ...

or as Napoleon was fond of pointing out, a foot on far.

Well the way I see it conclusions remain to be seen. On the other hand this story is no softball league pitch.

strictly heavy hitter stuff and it stinks like a kettle of 6 day old fish in August.

Folks can say it’s just another in a long list of physiological operations, but sooner or later the laundry must be cleaned.

Something or someone’s is gonna get tripped up. To much lying and conniving , and folks unlike me, in the know .

Maybe when it gets to the point of mass nail gunning and high jump acts, and of course the usual fare, baloneyum.

It would be a HUGE STORY if the (((Media Masters))) let the White goyim hear about it, but they won't.

I should also mention Putin’s treatment of certain Jewish oligarchs who have attempted to influence Western policies toward Russia (e.g., Mikhail Khodorkovsky). A truly stunning moment in the Trump-Putin presser (all but ignored in the MSM) was Putin saying that Bill Browder and his associates had illegally earned $1.5 billion in Russia (“the way the money was earned was illegal”) without paying taxes either to Russia or the United States where the money was transferred. And that he and his associates had contributed $400 million to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. While the charges back and forth are impossible for me to evaluate, Browder’s firm, Hermitage Capital Management, has been involved in other accusations of fraud. Browder was the main force promoting the Magnitsky Act, signed by President Obama in 2012, that barred Russian officials said to be involved in the death of Sergei Magnitsky, a Browder associate, from entering the U.S. or using the U.S. banking system.

Here the point is that American neocons have been in the forefront of hostility over Putin’s treatment of Jewish oligarchs, taking the view that Browder et al. are completely innocent victims of Russian evil. Along with Russian foreign policy, Putin’s actions toward the oligarchs is one factor in neocon and hence some factions of the GOP toward Russia. It’s no surprise that they are now eagerly joining the hate-Trump chorus throughout the American establishment.

It's even more complicated than this.

The list that the Russian prosecutor Yury Chaika sent to Washington included the following names of the people Russia wants to interrogate:
 -British subjects William Browder and Christopher Steele if they should travel in the United States
- ambassador Michael McFaul
- lawyer Jonathan Winer
- researcher David J. Kramer
-agent Todd Hyman.

See details about all and how they are connected to the Skripals, the Lockerbie plane crash, the "golden shower" at my site .

And Mr. Browder is at the center.

The Honorable Mr. Bill Browder

i wonder (((who))) were the 3 downvotes to jimmyjones' post?

hmmmm...it's a mystery.  i think we have about a dozen or so (((shills))) scouring the threads at all times, looking for anything remotely counter-semetic.

it's a pattern i've noticed.  the tests i've conducted are conclusive.  

anyway, i think we all need to take a very close look at bill browder.  i think the murder of edmund safra needs some looking into.  his nurse is still alive.  wonder what he'd be willing to say...things being what they are now.

Exactly.  No one really seems to observe this. Browder is not only an ideal false flag assassination target to blame on the Malevolent Tsar of Mordor, Putin, but as anyone who has seen his US crossexamination under oath or The Magnitsky Act documentary or read the superb The Killing of William Browder knows too well - he is very shaky under pressure. He appears to be a mid-range Narcissist and hustler, simply, rather than a confident and capable sociopath (like say Brennan et al).  He has been a useful precipitate to Russia hysteria and his own self interest is a low energy way to keep the narrative alive.  But much more scrutiny and i strongly suspect that he will be Litvenenko'ed and sacrificed for a changed imperative.

If the midterms go against the Dems and he wishes to remain alive I think very likely he should simply disappear.  But he just ain't that bright. Just a banker with criminal tendencies (tautology - sorry) in the right place at the right time.

Just imagine for a minute the maverick and Putin talked in private about Browder. Trump says you make your deal offer publicly, I'll deny it publicly, then I'll piss off the Euros so badly it blows up NATO and the EU. ( I think that's what this author is saying)

Then the maverick declassifies a ton of nasty shit and pounds the swamp with help from Russian intel.

Fanciful?

In the current hysteria,I don't think Putin is going to stick his dick in that hornets nest.

From the Russian pov, sit back and watch DC and the empire destroy itself would be the wiser option.They are doing

a sterling job without any help from Russia.

Never get between a fighting couple, both will turn on you like banshee's.
