Here is the Warning Hillary gave us all, about Russia 2016 influence.

Just to clear up any recent statements:


October 19, 2016 10:21 PM
Hillary Clinton was ready when the WikiLeaks hack of her campaign chairman, John Podesta, came up during the third and final presidential debate on Wednesday night.

After the moderator Chris Wallace quoted a line from a speech Clinton gave to a Brazilian bank – revealed in the hacked emails – the Democratic nominee took it as an opportunity to point out what she sees as the biggest takeaway from the WikiLeaks hack – the Russian government’s alleged involvement.

“You are very clearly quoting from WikiLeaks and what’s really important about WikiLeaks is that the Russian government has engaged in espionage against Americans,” Clinton told Wallace.

“They have hacked American websites, American accounts of private people, of institutions, then they have given that information to WikiLeaks for the purpose of putting it on the Internet,” she added.

“This has come from the highest levels of the Russian government, clearly from [Vladimir] Putin himself, in an effort – as 17 of our intelligence agencies have confirmed – to influence our election.

“So I actually think the most important question of this evening, Chris, is finally will Donald Trump admit that the Russians are doing this and that he rejects Russian espionage?”

Hillary Clinton knew of the Russian influence, warned us, & publicly stated it with Sen Sanders, Chris Wallace & the world listening to her words.

Everybody did know. Hillary warned us all.

Thank you.

The media today: Are Russian trolls behind everything?



The media today: Are Russian trolls behind everything?
By Mathew Ingram
FEBRUARY 21, 2018
1321 WORDS
NOW THAT SPECIAL COUNSEL ROBERT MUELLER has indicted a dozen Russian agents and several Russian corporations as part of his investigation into interference in the 2016 US election, the troll problem must be solved, right?

Not quite. In fact, Russian trolls seem to be popping up almost everywhere:

A New York Times report, for example, said that a number of Twitter accounts with links to Russia moved quickly to take advantage of the attention focused on the mass shooting at a school in Parkland, Florida, by posting hundreds of updates related to the event and using popular hashtags.

How extensive or influential this was, however, is unclear.
The Times relied in part on data from Hamilton68, a site that tracks the behavior of a range of Russian accounts, but the site’s conclusions have been questioned.
It was created by The Alliance For Securing Democracy, which is in turn associated with the nonprofit German Marshall Fund.

According to The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald, the Alliance and the Fund are backed by notorious right-wing warmongers such as Bill Kristol and Mike Chertoff, and therefore their conclusions should be taken with a grain of salt.

Others have also raised concerns:
The Russia-focused news site Meduza notes Hamilton68 won’t disclose which accounts it follows, and in some cases, they appear to just be accounts set up by actual Russian entities such as the broadcaster Russia Today.

Fascinating Read: Bill Browder, " Australia should pass Magnitsky Act"


There are now Magnitsky Acts in six countries and Mr Browder has launched his campaign for Australia to introduce its own version of the law.

"I would like to find a multi-party group of advocates to join me in Australia, in the way I have done it in the US, UK and Canada, to put a Magnitsky Act to the Australian parliament," he told 7.30.
Magnitsky Acts work on the principle that Russian fraudsters make their money at home and then spend and invest their ill-gotten gains in Western countries.

The acts aim to deliver justice where the Russian courts have failed, through visa bans and the freezing of assets, preventing criminals from investing in safe havens.

"The most important thing is all legitimate rule-of-law countries sign up," Mr Browder said.

"The Russians are not going to keep all their money in Dubai or China, they're going to keep their money in the US, Canada, and Australia, in safe countries.

"So, if we can disrupt the safety of their money it really does have a profound impact on their psychology."

'The bravest man I have ever known'

The world's first Magnitsky Act was passed by the US in 2012 after Mr Browder successfully lobbied Republican senator John McCain and Democrat senator Ben Cardin to co-sponsor a bill.

The laws are named in honour of former tax lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, who died in custody in 2009 after he had been hired by Mr Browder to investigate one of the biggest cases of fraud in Russian history.

"Sergei Magnitsky was the bravest man I have ever known," Mr Browder said.
"He took on the Russian Government and exposed a massive crime committed by officials and ultimately paid for it with his life."

Mr Browder was once Russia's biggest foreign investor through his hedge fund Hermitage Capital.
He made his clients a stack of money at the turn of the century as the former communist country sold off state assets.

But after exposing the flow of dirty money to bureaucrats and cronies, Mr Browder was expelled from Russia.
He says his office was raided and officials seized his papers, which were then used to steal a number of his companies.

He hired Mr Magnitsky to get bottom of what was going on and the unassuming tax lawyer soon uncovered a much bigger fraud.
"He discovered that in addition to stealing our investment holding companies, the perpetrators used the stolen companies to steal $US230 million of taxes we paid to the Russian Government," Mr Browder said.

Mr Magnitsky alleged the perpetrators were police, organised crime figures, members of the Interior Ministry and tax officials.

Mr Browder said Mr Magnitsky never got justice because the crimes he exposed go all the way to the top echelons of power in Russia.
"This fraud goes straight up to Vladimir Putin," he said.
"We've traced money from the fraud going to his nominee, a man named Sergei Roldugin, who happens to be the godfather of Putin's children, his oldest friend from childhood, who has been exposed through the Panama Papers as a cellist who is worth $US2 billion.

"Which means, for all intents and purposes, Putin got the money."

Mr Putin in turn has accused Mr Browder of criminal behaviour.
He has tried to have Interpol place Mr Browder on the Red Notice list to prevent him travelling internationally.

At a press conference in October last year the President (Putin) attacked both Mr Browder and Mr Magnitsky.
"What lies underneath these events?
Underneath are the criminal activities of an entire gang led by one particular man, I believe Browder is his name," Mr Putin said.

Mr Browder said he knows Magnitsky Acts are effective because he sees how enraged they make the Russian President.
"Putin has made this his single-largest foreign policy priority, to stop the Magnitsky Act," he said.

Russians lobby Trump campaign team

The importance Mr Putin places on stopping Magnitsky Acts was on display at the now infamous meeting in Trump Tower in June 2016, that is now a part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the US election.


Bill Browder is then, the second bravest man.

Comstock Blames the FBI for Parkland Shooting

Comstock claiming to be a champion of keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill is even more outrageous than blaming the FBI for the shootings.

Comstock voted to repeal the Obama administration rule prohibiting sale of firearms to mentally ill social security beneficiaries.

Comstock voted to allow gun purchases by individuals deemed so mentally incompetent that they are not allowed to manage their own finances. The bill was signed by Trump on the same day she skipped work to get her picture taken with him.

Comstock voted to repeal a law blocking mentally ill veterans from purchasing firearms.

Comstock has to go.

Head of Latvia's central bank has been detained by the country's anti-corruption agency




From Garland's Twitter:

Article From bbc:

The head of Latvia's central bank, Ilmars Rimsevics, has been detained by the country's anti-corruption agency.

His home and offices at the Bank of Latvia were both raided by officers.

The country's Corruption Prevention Bureau gave no details about its investigation, or the nature of the raids.

Latvia's Prime Minister, Maris Kucinskis, has called an emergency cabinet meeting on Monday - but added there was no apparent national threat.

"There are no signs that there is any threat to the Latvian financial system," he said in a statement.

He said neither he, as prime minister, nor any other officials had any reason to interfere with the anti-corruption agency's work.

"The institution works professionally and accurately," he said, pledging the government's full support and saying there would be no outside influence.

The Bank of Latvia said it could not comment on the investigation, but said it had a "zero tolerance policy in respect of corruption and other illicit activities".
