Robin Hood helps the poor Russian people then?

More narrative gold... saving the Russian people from corruption...

"Russia has threatened Obama administration that will stop cooperation on Iran and prevent further deliveries of supplies to Afghanistan if Congress passes a law which has been criticized in the Russian practice of human rights."

Stop cooperating on Iran and cut supplies to Afghanistan? Somehow we have the feeling this smallish incident, this law, is the rattling lid on a big big pot of boiling nasty.

S. 1039

To impose sanctions on persons responsible for the detention, abuse, or death of Sergei Magnitsky, for the conspiracy to defraud the Russian Federation of taxes on corporate profits through fraudulent transactions and lawsuits against Hermitage, and for other gross violations of human rights in the Russian Federation, and for other purposes.


First clue. Introduced by:

Mr. CARDIN (for himself, Mr. MCCAIN, Ms. AYOTTE, Mr. BEGICH, Mr. BLUMENTHAL, Mr. DURBIN, Mr. JOHANNS, Mr. KIRK, Mr. KYL, Mr. LIEBERMAN, Mr. RUBIO, Mrs. SHAHEEN, Mr. WHITEHOUSE, and Mr. WICKER) introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations
Mr. Kyl and Mr. Lieberman, that despicable fucking twit. Pardonne moi.

The bill lectures Russia on corruption and democracy.


The bill LINKS TOGETHER, CONFLATES, the cases of Sergei Magnitsky and Mikhail Khordokovsky.

Critics also say his tactics were among the most aggressive of the oligarchs, and that Western media have overlooked the more unsavoury aspects of his past....After Mr. Khodorkovsky's arrest, tax police filed huge back-tax claims against Yukos. Unable to pay, the Moscow-based firm eventually filed for bankruptcy and its production assets, which included some of the best oil fields in Russia, were sold off at state-run auctions, as were Mr. Khodorkovsky's other main assets.

Section 12:

(12) According to the Financial Times, ‘A commission appointed by President Dmitry Medvedev has found that Russian police fabricated charges against an anti-corruption lawyer [Sergei Magnitsky], whose death in prison in 2009 has come to symbolise pervasive corruption in Russian law enforcement.’.
SYMBOLIZING. Moving right along from the unfortunate Mr. Magnitsky, whose unfortunate death has had a silver lining, Section 13:

(13) The second trial and verdict against former Yukos executives Mikhail Khodorkovsky and Platon Lebedev evokes serious concerns about the right to a fair trial and the independence of the judiciary in the Russian Federation. The lack of credible charges, intimidation of witnesses, violations of due process and procedural norms, falsification or withholding of documents, denial of attorney-client privilege, and illegal detention in the Yukos case are highly troubling. The Council of Europe, Freedom House, and Amnesty International, among others, have concluded that they were charged and imprisoned in a process that did not follow the rule of law and was politically influenced. Furthermore, senior officials of the Government of the Russian Federation have acknowledged that the arrest and imprisonment of Khodorkovsky were politically motivated.
(14) According to Freedom House’s 2011 report entitled ‘The Perpetual Battle: Corruption in the Former Soviet Union and the New EU Members’, ‘[t]he highly publicized cases of Sergei Magnitsky, a 37-year-old lawyer who died in pretrial detention in November 2009 after exposing a multimillion-dollar fraud against the Russian taxpayer, and Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the jailed business magnate and regime critic who was sentenced at the end of 2010 to remain in prison through 2017, put an international spotlight on the Russian state’s contempt for the rule of law. . . . By silencing influential and accomplished figures such as Khodorkovsky and Magnitsky, the Russian authorities have made it abundantly clear that anyone in Russia can be silenced.’.


S. 1039: Symbolizing and Evoking Serious Concerns About Russian Badness

The point of the bill then being to IDENTIFY the bad people responsible for Magnitsky's death, according to Hillary Clinton and Tim Geithner, two more people you can trust:

(a) In General- Not later than 90 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury, shall publish a list of each person the Secretary of State has reason to believe--

These people -- whoever they are -- shall have their visas revoked, will be investigated for money laundering, and have their assets frozen.

So who could they be, these terrible people responsible for Sergei Magnitsky's death? Here's the list.

TAKE A LOOK AT THE LIST. We don't quite know what to say. It looks like they are attempting to take out several departments of the Russian government. People who are doing their JOBS investigating FRAUD and TAX EVASION.

The list comes from The Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, and Senator Ben Cardin, who is Jewish, has taken the initiative to prepare this list and urge Hillary Clinton to impose sanctions on all these people who are part of the Russian government.

As Chairman of the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe (U.S. Helsinki Commission), Senator Cardin has held hearings on corruption, including a 2009 event that highlighted the case of Hermitage Capital Management, the company whose lawyer -- Sergei Magnitsky -- exposed a $230 million tax fraud scheme perpetrated by numerous Russian officials, including Artem Kuznetsov (left) and Pavel Karpov (right).  Magnitsky died while in pre-trial detention, after repeatedly being denied medical treatment.
“I urge you to immediately cancel and permanently withdraw the U.S visa privileges of all those involved in this crime, along with their dependents and family members,” Cardin wrote in the letter.
The 60 names on the list include senior officials from the Russian Interior Ministry, Federal Security Service, Federal Tax Service, Arbitration Courts, General Prosecutor Office, and Federal Prison Service, along with detailed descriptions of their involvement in the case.

In other words, this bill goes after senior officials of Russia's Interior Ministry, which is basically like their FBI, as well as senior officials of the Russian Tax Service (like the IRS), plus some judges and other people. All for the sake of Hermitage.

And Sergie. But mostly Hermitage. Because poor Sergei can't be helped anymore. May he rest in peace.

^^^^^^^

Who is Sergei Magnitsky, and what happened to him?




The CEO and Founder of Hermitage Capital is William Browder, an American financier with British citizenship. His grandfather was Earl Russell Browder, the head of the American Communist party from 1930-45. Browder's second wife was a Russian Jewess, Raissa Irene Berkman. She is William Browder's grandmother.

Perhaps explaining why the "American" financier said the following recently:

"The highest levels of law enforcement in Russia have been abusing their offices for political, criminal and retaliatory purposes since this whole saga began,” he said. “It is being done shamelessly, and the whole world watches on in amazement. Either the Russian President and Prime Minister are powerless to fight officials who are stealing enormous amounts of state money, or they are direct beneficiaries. Either way, it is a terrible condemnation of what is happening in my country."
Meaning: Russia. Which is a strange thing to say for an American.

international man of mystery?

 
Let's go back to two days after Magnitsky dies:



ONE QUESTION COMES TO MIND. QUI BONO?

Earlier Russian Mafia portal (rumafia.com) reported that Browder was accused of “large scale tax evasion” (Article 199.2 of the Criminal Code stipulates up to 6 years in prison). The investigation was opened in 2004 in Kalmykia, then the investigation was continued by the Investigative Committee of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. The investigators believe, Heritage Capital fund, registered in Bailiwick of Guernsey offshore, used a complicated fraud scheme to dodge ban on buying the shares of state-run Gazprom company by foreigners. The investigators gathered evidence that the firms affiliated with Heritage Capital did not pay over 2b roubles ($0.17b) in taxes.
The scheme to evade taxes was allegedly designed by tax advisor to the fund Sergey Magnitsky. He was arrested and died of acute heart failure in custody in November 2009 in prison hospital of Matrosskaya Tishina (the investigation into his death is going on). Magnitsky case was separate criminal proceedings and it was terminated due to his death.

This is another one of those incidents where we find a whole cottage industry sprung up around it, similar to the American missionary couple Martin and Gracia Burnham, who witnessed the jubilation of terrorists on 911. See: wheel of misfortune.

Mr. Magnitsky's unfortunate death has justified quite a lot of self-righteousness and finger-pointing by Mr. Browder.

Look at Mr. Browder. Are you not convinced that he is a self made man?


Browder was once the largest foreign investor in Russia.



"Hermitage is also seeking information from Citigroup and JP Morgan Chase, with whom the implicated Russian banks had New York correspondent accounts. They are alleged to have unknowingly received "the laundered proceeds of the frauds"....Hermitage is being represented by John Ashcroft, the former US attorney general, and US law firm Graves Bartle Marcus & Garrett."


On the same day he was charged with tax evasion, he released a youtube accusing Russian officials of fraud, racketeering and corruption.

The investigators accuse Hermitage Capital of the violation of the President’s Decree of 1997 ‘On circulation of Gazprom shares’ which prohibited acquisition before 2006 of the monopoly’s stocks by foreign-owned companies. Non-residents had to buy the shares on the LSE in the form of depository receipts at a substantially higher price.
Mr Browder and Mr Magnitsky have also been accused of tax evasion through several companies they set up in the Russian regions, including those incorporated in the ‘internal free economic zone’ Kalmykia.
So Hermitage purchased shares of Gazprom at the resident rate instead of the non-resident rate.... ? He's an American right? Non-resident rate applies. And then set up shell companies to avoid paying taxes... ?

Foreign investors buying Gazprom on the cheap.

And Mr. Browder is a media expert?

One of Browder’s know-hows is his use of western media in support - or instead – of legal battles. In 2002, for instance, he launched a media campaign against Gazprom which triggered extensive allegations of abuses by the management of Gazprom and auditors in the western press, despite the fact that the lawsuits against PricewaterhouseCoopers, the company’s auditor, were dismissed by the courts.
In the words of Bill Browder, cited by Alexander Dyck from the University of Toronto, ‘Our basic approach is to thoroughly research and understand where the corporate malfeasance is taking place and then go to great pains to simplify the story so the average person can understand what is going on.…. We then share the stories with the press. By doing so, we want to inflict real consequences – business, reputational and financial’
The country has changed and, as the Telenor case shows, it is now less sensitive to attacks by the western media. What Mr Browder - who in Russia has a reputation of a greenmailer - says is nothing new or unheard of. Yet, in his mouth the sad truth about corruption in Russia takes on the same ironic flavour as his attempts to put on Mother Teresa’s clothes.
So, a bit of a hypocrite then? Imagine our shock.

The questions William Browder would rather not answer, August 29, 2002


These personal notes of reporter Christopher Kenneth were taken away by William Browder, who refused to answer any questions from The Russia Journal, other than his dismissed cases against auditing firm PricewaterhouseCoopers.
To profile the business and personality of Browder, who has been crusading against corporate corruption in Russia, The Russia Journal had planned to discuss the following issues, but was met with a refusal from Browder.
1) According to information made available to The Russia Journal, on Dec. 12, 1999, Russian company Avisma Titano-Magnesium Combine filed a case in U.S. District Court, accusing a group of investors of stealing its assets and asked the court to help recover $150 million reportedly missing in the transaction. Hermitage Fund, Kenneth Dart and Dart Management were mentioned among the defendants. Could you explain what exactly was behind that case and what transpired after it was filed?
2) In November 2001, Hermitage Fund lost a case against Volzhansk Chocolate Factory. Michael Calvey, a managing partner at Baring Vostok Capital, which owns 50.4 percent in the factory, accused Hermitage Fund and you personally of greenmailing on the one hand and exerting unnecessary pressure on minority shareholders on the other. Were the greenmailing allegations correct? Did Hermitage try to manipulate minority shareholders?
4) Why was Hermitage suing PwC, and not Gazprom itself, if that is where the asset stripping occurred?
6) Euromoney Magazine recently rated Gazprom as the seventh best company in terms of corporate governance in the world. What, in your opinion, is the state of corporate governance in Gazprom and other Russian companies today?
7) Some investors say that the so-called corporate governance of companies in Russia is nothing but a PR campaign. Hermitage has stakes in many Russian companies. How does Mr. Browder react to comments like this?
8) A source told The Russia Journal that "Browder diluted Hermitage investors' equities by merging his funds Hermitage-2 & Hermitage-3." Could you explain exactly what happened – and the status of the assets held or invested – in those funds?
10) Before you came to Russia, you worked for Robert Maxwell and his pension funds. Maxwell's company was at the heart of one of the biggest scams in corporate history. Could you tell us about your job in that company? Did you ever sense Maxwell was looting his company systematically?
Well that was a long time ago, and probably those questions have Never Been Answered. 

Leading the charges against the Russian government for stealing their companies, stealing from the Russian people (dramatic flourish), and allegedly killing Sergei Magnitsky: Jamison Firestone. Browder's lawyer.

The investigation by friends of Magnitsky, led by the Jamison Firestone, the founder and managing partner of the law firm that employed him drew on the resources of liberal newspaper Novaya Gazeta and posted a video on YouTube which promises to be the first of a series on Col Kuznetsov and his colleagues that the group has dubbed the Russian Untouchables....Firestone runs his business in Russia from London, from where he has refused to return to Moscow fearing he will also be arrested and imprisoned.
FURTHER READING on this case:

Russian Mafia: Jamison Reed, the noble outlaw Jamison Reed Firestone

Russian Mafia: BIO AND HISTORY OF WILLIAM BRAUDER / BROWDER

The real interest of Browder was, of course, not the protection of the three companies which had no existing assets any longer. And not the protection of the robbed Russian state - well, he was not so much noble. And yet, Browder continued to spend huge money on lawyers. This gave him the opportunity to discredit Russia. As he once terrorized "Gazprom", giving the information to shareholders about the machinations, initiating claims - and then probably making a good compensation. And the more Russian machinations attracted the attention of the international communities, the greater the influence of Browder was, even in spite of the search - no one will extradite him from London.

We can't recommend it highly enough.

Jailed British Businessman Likened to Sergei Magnitsky, August 1, 2011

A British businessman who is being held in a Moscow detention center has fallen so severely ill that his lawyer says he could die at any moment. Darren Keane, 43, CEO of the Storm International gambling holding, is accused of letting two of the company's casinos operate in the city even after gambling was banned in July 2009...The case is apparently part of a bigger investigation against illegal gambling in the city. A police official told RIA-Novosti on Friday that a national search warrant had been issued for other foreign executives of Storm International who are allegedly in hiding. The report did not specify their number nor publish any names.
If he dies, that would throw some gasoline on the fire. Hmm?

Also, the statute of limitations on tax evasions will expire at the end of 2011, which will be VERY CONVENIENT for  Mr. Browder, if he can just stall and delay the case, and change the subject to Mr. Magnitsky's death and all that horrible Russian corruption, until he's off the hook.
One of the recent most controversial criminal cases may be terminated in the near future. The case on tax evasion against William Browder, the investment fund Hermitage Capital manager, was presented to the Central Federal District General Directorate of the Ministry of the Interior to review further investigation prospects, and Browder is no longer on the wanted list....The Russian Mafia web-site (rumafia.com) found out that statute of limitations on charges of tax evasion expires that at the end of this year, so now it is important to make it clear whether there is time to bring the case to court. Viktor Grin, Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, has sent investigators a letter in which he has pointed to the delay in terms of investigation and ordered to remove procedural flaws with the objective of sending the case to court.

Good one Mr&Mrs P!

In order to "understand" the looting of the Russian people, by blood-dripping-from-their-fangs, people like Khodorkovsky & Co, most of them now residing in "israel" and London, here´s an article from those years in question:
http://www.exile.ru/articles/detail.php?ARTICLE_ID=7104&IBLOCK_ID=35
The Russians know their enemy.
Oh, and why is it that Russia is back on her feet as a traditional superpower over there (here) and one of the mighty BRICS while the US and the anglo-american sphere sinks further into the abyss? Could it be that Vladimir Putin threw out and imprisoned the tribal blood suckers once and for all while the US is still "isreli-occupied territory" with no interests whatsoever other than israels? True, you´v got the "Christian" Zionists and their Armageddon death cult to deal with as well....

hi Olle, that's a very funny link thank you...

we've done a bit of looking into Putin here, especially after finding out he was tight with Berlusconi.

Bravo AP. I wonder how many of these kosher nostra had links to the Rothschild web? Do they smell the opportunity to escape the trap Putin sprang on them?

The PDF document was a real eye opener. This looks like the tribe going after those nasty goyim that had the temerity to stand up for the Russian Motherland. Witness the usual tactics of screaming victimisation on the part of the thief when their fingers get caught in the till.

One last word on the arrogance of the quisling dual-national congress critters. What arrogance to presume to make such allegations when greater crimes are committed every day in Gitmo and the many gulags of Zion across the world? That arrogance will be their undoing.

hey C, you know it. the link toward the end is also really, really good especially for people who have a sense of corrupt business practices like shell companies in the Caymen Islands and Cyprus, etc. it is really quite breathtaking how they have BENEFITED from the death of Magnitsky, how convenient a cudgel to bash Russia with. and so true about the hypocrisy all around, the deep concern for this Russian lawyer who died in jail while uncounted and untold atrocities take place in jails under the control of the US government.

Hey AP:
thanks for the comment, and apologies for the off topic on my part, I went to look at Jen Lakes blog and have linked it in my sidebar.
I am glad you directed me to that individual , additionaly I went to read that other schlock-
typical crap, I saw alot of that stuff during the whole swine flu thing,as I am sure you did.
I love how these maroons gloss over all the legitimate concerns!

I will have to come back to read, what I am sure is a typical excellent AP post! But, I am off and running for the day.
thanks again ap :)

Hi there, A.Peasant,

Browder = jew. Some variants:
Broder, Broeder, Border, Brader, Brewter, Broadr, Brodar, Bröder, Brodeur, Bruder.

That crazy law being passed in the US is pure jewish abuse of power, using the US as a base to attack their enemy, Putin's Russia, which obviously is defending themselves from jewish looting. If you look at the list of people behind that bill, they are all jews.

Another strange player who comes to mind is "Eringer" (www.eringer33.com), a jew and "former" associate of FBI and CIA who is in the "information business". He was apparently stiffed by the Prince over his work as the former head of the Monaco secret service, and is apparently the guy behind the scandals which have befallen the Principality of Monaco. I ask myself if there is an agenda other than retribution out of that personal issue behind all what he is publishing on Prince Albert. Eringer is also frothing-at-the-mouth hateful against Putin - check out his blog - possibly a tribal thing - and resentful of his association with Prince Albert. He has stated in response to reader questions that Edmond Safra - a former associate of Browder - either died of natural causes or there was nothing suspicious about his death and the fire in his flat.

I think that "Eringer" is somebody worth a modicum of interest in the context of watching the tribe.

Well, whatever.

hello anonymous (blushing), thank you for the beautiful flowers... and all the excellent info in your comment. i am looking into these personalities and am grateful for the tips. for some reason i think i have come across this eringer in the past, once upon a time in some research about Monaco. i'll have to go back to the files and check. he rings a bell. and i see he is no newcomer, what with his minor horde of followers and juicy establishment pedigree.

hmm... I didn't know that McCain, Ayotte, Begich, Durbin, Johanns, Kirk, Kyl, Rubio, Shaheen, Whitehouse, and Wicker were Jews. Thanks for the heads up!

A. Peasant said...

well hello anonymous.

i suppose technically you're right. not all those people are jews. a lot of people just *work* for the jews, which is different.



The sole purpose of non-Jews is to serve Jews, according to Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, the head of Shas’s Council of Torah Sages and a senior Sephardi adjudicator.

“Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel,” he said in his weekly Saturday night sermon on the laws regarding the actions non-Jews are permitted to perform on Shabbat.

According to Yosef, the lives of non-Jews in Israel are safeguarded by divinity, to prevent losses to Jews.

“In Israel, death has no dominion over them... With gentiles, it will be like any person – they need to die, but [God] will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money.

This is his servant... That’s why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew,” Yosef said.

“Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat.

That is why gentiles were created,” he added.


http://www.jpost.com/JewishWorld/JewishNews/Article.aspx?id=191782

there are some people in congress, non jews, who love to support israel, who have stellar records of supporting israel, who fight and claw over the brownie points pooped out by israel. i know mr. kyl is one of those people. i don't know about the others, but you could check.

Malooga said...

anonymous again,

I'm not sure how I found your blog, probably somehow through Winter Patriot's blog, but I've been following TB for over six months and I think you do some very good work. That is why I took the step to place a first comment.

I am only posting this here as I see no email contact for the website to discuss things without disturbing the flow of comments.

Congresspeople are whores. They also work for the military-industrial complex, the FIRE industries, big Pharma, the energy giants, etc. Your quote sheds little light on why this is so, when their behavior obviously contradicts the will of the people they supposedly represent.

And psychopaths will use ANY ideology to provide cover for their goals.

I passed your quote around to several Jews in the cubicle farm where I work in Boston, and none had ever seen it before, or agreed with it. None felt that Sen. Kyl was working for them. Perhaps people are different where you live.

Do you mean Zionists when you say Jews, or do you think that Senators personally serve all Jews?

Just so you don't think that I am a "rude little troll" out to spoil the party, here is some of my work: Everything you wanted to know about how Zionists control US policy.

Malooga

A. Peasant said...

hello Malooga. thank you for identifying yourself. i'm not a fan of anonymous commenting as you have discerned.

you may have come across TB because i know i linked to Moon Over Alabama sometime in the past year. can't remember what the topic was but good blog at your place.

i agree about the congress people and the psychopaths. no argument there.

as for discerning between Zionists and Jews, i used to do that and i don't bother anymore. there is a lengthy discussion somewhere over at the WP site that we had in a comment thread, and i will have to dig that up and also read your post before going into more detail.

i have touched upon some of senator kyl's record in this post:

http://twelfthbough.blogspot.com/2011/04/where-is-house-of-cake.html

really the rest deserves much more of a thoughtful response, and that may not happen till the other side of the weekend.

A. Peasant said...

Malooga,

i used to differentiate between jews and zionists. i don't anymore. i also used to be very interested in politics and believe that left/right meant something. i don't believe that anymore either. the divisions are ultimately meaningless.

you mention organization as a type of power. i agree. the jews are very organized *when they want to be organized.* their organization is issue dependent. where was their famous organization and outrage after Operation Cast Lead?

http://winterpatriot.com/node/431#comment-7008

in the post you linked to, you review a lot about formal jewish power structures in the US and how they work to control policy, concluding:

"In conclusion, a small, wealthy, highly organized, and unprecedentedly powerful group of people are leading the world – largely against their will – down a very destructive and risky path. Only by understanding the ways and means by which this is being accomplished can we hope to staunch their power and stop their plans."

i do not assume that the goals of the powerful are "against the will" of the goals of american jews who work in cubicles or elsewhere anywhere across this country. i don't see any evidence of that, personal denials not-withstanding. talk is cheap. it's action that counts. anyone can claim ignorance, can say they don't agree, blah blah blah.

anyway, i find the claims of ignorance, in general, hard to believe. it is a self-serving thing to say one does not know about XYZ or agree with XYZ while doing nothing serious about it. it allows a game of "not all jews," where the problem people are always some other fringe people somewhere else. it's lame and cowardly and i have no respect for it.

Would this be a subtle bit of ridicule to those of us who are paying attention?

"Paul Krugman is so frustrated by the lack of support for another round of stimulus spending that he's now calling for a fake alien invasion of the United States to spur a World War II-style defense buildup"link

During the Norway incident, it seemed like there were a number of items directed squarely at us, such as the freemason images, news of the bombing drill, etc.. My perception was that this invisible beast was communicating directly to us, boldly demonstrating its awareness of us, touting its power. Pure evil.

wouldn't surprise me Blammo. i didn't get into the norway incident, but i was amazed how quickly it got unpacked. and i thought, ok wtf is up with that? are they that sloppy or do they not care anymore or did they mean to leave all that stuff laying around? so i had that similar perception that it was a sort of in-your-face thing.
