The Curious Case of Bill Browder

"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.

The “Magnitsky Trio” Pushes For War With Russia with New Sanctions

If half of what I have come to understand about the Curious Case of Bill Browder is true, then the "Magnitsky Trio" of Senators John McCain, Lindsay Graham and Ben Cardin are guilty of espionage, at a minimum. Why?  Because they know that Browder's story about Sergei Magnitsky is a lie.  And that means that … Continue reading The “Magnitsky Trio” Pushes For War With Russia with New Sanctions

Her phone is scanning her … Continue reading Breaching the Public Trust – Facebook is the Beginning

Ghouta is an Aleppo Redux to Save “Assad Must Go”

It's clear that U.S. policy in Syria is to make life as miserable as possible for both Russia and the Syrian people.  Syria is of such strategic importance to our foreign policy goals of encirclement that no matter the facts on the ground or the growing distaste for war abroad at home, U.S. foreign policy … Continue reading Ghouta is an Aleppo Redux to Save “Assad Must Go”

The FISA Memo, Obama and the Election that Almost Wasn’t

“Round up the usual suspects,” will be as far as the Democrats will be willing to go in the wake of the FISA memo’s release. There is nothing in that memo that anyone following Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation doesn’t already know. All the memo does is corroborate the bread crumbs left behind by a … Continue reading The FISA Memo, Obama and the Election that Almost Wasn’t
