Dead Russian Oligarchs and those Still Alive

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Many mysterious deaths of Russian oligarchs have gained the attention of those following the wealth of Russians and Putin…

In part from Newsweek:

Two Russian oligarchs were found dead this week alongside their family in luxurious homes in Russia and Spain, with the two cases discovered within 24 hours of each other.

Both deaths are believed by police to be cases of murder-suicide, but the evidence supporting these theories is muddled by the fact that the events happened so close together, with the two oligarchs the last of several who have been found to have died by suicide since the beginning of the year.

The longer list includes Sergey Protosenya, Vladislav Avaev, Vasily Melnikov, Mikhail Watford, Alexander Tyulyakov, and Leonid Shulman. Click here to read their resumes and reported death details.

There are many many more oligarchs that are for sure getting their affairs in order meaning hiding their assets and hiding themselves or are simply laundering their reputations…from whom and what is quite crazy too. They are paying for higher security of themselves and their families and their assets while some are making donations to Western entities to save face as well as to keep off of sanctions lists by many governments.

In part, an initial database of oligarchic donations to more than 200 of the most prestigious nonprofits in the U.S. — from museums to universities to think tanks. Recipients included some of the country’s foremost institutions, such as Harvard University, the Brookings Institution, and New York’s Museum of Modern Art. U.S. nonprofits even accepted funds from the richest oligarchs in Russia. Vladimir Potanin, considered Russia’s wealthiest oligarch, successfully donated to multiple significant U.S. nonprofits, including the Kennedy Center and Guggenheim Museum. And he didn’t stop at donations: Potanin managed to obtain seats on the Guggenheim’s board of trustees and the global advisory board of the Council on Foreign Relations think tank. All of this transpired despite Potanin’s “close” relationship with Putin and the fact that, as author David Hoffman describes in his groundbreaking 2011 book, The Oligarchs, Potanin acted as the “ringleader” for the oligarchs as they seized assets and political power in the mid-1990s. Read more here.

Men Posed as Homeland Security Agents, Arrested

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

They were well-financed and it appears to be an Iranian operation, but that is not confirmed or revealed just yet. It is unsettling that this operation began in 2020. Most of all shame on the Secret Service.

The FBI has arrested two men who they say posed as Homeland Security agents for years, using their false identities to get close to actual law enforcement officials, including a Secret Service agent assigned to the detail of First Lady Jill Biden.

Arian Taherzadeh, 40, and Haider Ali, 36, were arrested Wednesday following a late-afternoon raid at a Washington D.C. apartment complex where they both lived.

According to the probable cause affidavit in support of the men’s arrests, Taherzadeh and Ali had been posing as agents for the Department of Homeland Security since as early as February 2020.

“Taherzadeh and Ali, are not, in fact, employees of the Department of Homeland Security or any United States government agency,” the affidavit noted.

Their goal, according to prosecutors, was to “ingratiate themselves with members of federal law enforcement and the defense community.” Tahersadeh and Ali apparently targeted other residents of the building, many of whom were actual law enforcement officials and employees.

According to one witness, Taherzadeh had “made it clear that he is the ‘go-to guy’ if a resident needs anything in the building.” He allegedly provided “gifts or favors for residents, many of whom were members of law enforcement, including the FBI, USSS, or DHS, or employees of government agencies, including the Department of Defense and Navy.”

Those “gifts or favors” included loaning what Taherzadeh claimed was a “government vehicle” to one witness’ wife and providing her with a generator. Taherzadeh also allegedly offered to get the witness an AR-15-style rifle valued at around $2,000.

That witness, according to the affidavit, is a Secret Service agent currently assigned to Jill Biden’s detail.

Why Biden Wants Ukraine to Lose

By: Cliff Kincaid

Without any objection to how the war is being conducted on the American side, General Mark Milley has said it will last “at least years for sure.” That’s because Biden doesn’t want Ukraine to win. Milley and his comrades are content to keep the war going, costing thousands of lives, as long as they don’t provoke Vladimir Putin.

Putin seems to have a mysterious hold over members of the Biden Administration.

Almost every day we see another story about political figures, Democrats and Republicans, wondering why the Biden Administration is so timid when it comes to providing weapons to Ukraine to win the war against Russia.

The typical term is “slow-walking” weapons to Ukraine.

Putting it another way, there is some substance to the claim by Marxist scholar Noam Chomsky that current U.S. policy is to “fight to the last Ukrainian” while “offering no way to save Ukraine from further tragedy.”

However, saving Ukraine — and the world — from further tragedy is not to give in to Russia but rather to develop a strategy of victory over communism.

Recognizing the no-win nature of the war, when it comes to the United Nations, Ukraine President Zelensky said the world body wasn’t doing anything to support Ukraine because Russia is a permanent member and has veto power. He noted, correctly, “We are dealing with a state that turns the right of veto in the UN Security Council into a right to kill.”

Biden, a great backer of the U.N. who once wrote about his love for a New World Order, understands what Russia is doing and either doesn’t care or has another agenda, set in motion by his handlers, that will be implemented at the same time.

Ukrainian Hackers Take Aim at Russian Artillery, Navigation

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Primer: There are several global hacking groups taking on all things Russia and some have moved their targets to Belarus, now a nation state of Russia. The BBC reported recently the following in part:

The Anonymous hacktivist collective has been bombarding Russia with cyber-attacks since declaring “cyber war” on President Vladimir Putin in retaliation for the invasion of Ukraine. Several people operating under its banner spoke to the BBC about their motives, tactics and plans.

Of all the cyber-attacks carried out since the Ukraine conflict started, an Anonymous hack on Russian TV networks stands out.

The hack was captured in a short video clip which shows normal programming interrupted with images of bombs exploding in Ukraine and soldiers talking about the horrors of the conflict.

The video began circulating on the 26 February and was shared by Anonymous social media accounts with millions of followers. “JUST IN: #Russian state TV channels have been hacked by #Anonymous to broadcast the truth about what happens in #Ukraine,” one post read.

It quickly racked up millions of views.

Additionally, the WSJ reports in part:

Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian technology workers have taken part in cyberattacks against Russia’s government, media and financial institutions in recent days, a top Ukrainian cybersecurity official said Friday.

Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine just over a week ago, Ukraine’s sprawling and fast-growing technology industry says it has sprung to action not only to keep working but also to support the country’s resistance by helping with cyberattacks against Russia.

The IT Army could number more than 400,000 people inside and outside the country, and it has done more than deface or take down Russian websites, said Viktor Zhora, deputy chief of Ukraine’s State Service of Special Communication and Information Protection, which is responsible for cybersecurity in the country.

Mr. Zhora said the IT Army, members of which have taken credit for temporarily knocking an array of Russian government and bank websites offline, has also helped their country by providing intelligence and attacking military systems. He also said the movement has attempted to circumvent Russian domestic censorship of news about the war by sending Russian individuals information and pictures about the war by phone, text and messaging app.

The Butcher(s) of Bucha, Ukraine and the War Crimes Evidence Details

Click the ‘coal’ link above but fair warning of graphic video of Bucha.

The Russian commander behind the atrocities in Bucha has been named and pictured.

It comes as “mounting evidence” of war crimes committed by Russian forces in the city near the capital of Kyiv will be discussed by a United Nations Security Council today.

The Ukrainian President – who was seen holding back tears as he visited the aftermath on Monday – will address the council, which is pushing to ensure “justice is done.”

Volodymyr Zelenskyy surveyed the alleged atrocities near the capital of Kyiv, describing the discovery of raped women and murdered children among the dead.

He was accompanied by defending servicemen after invading troops had retreated from the area.

US President Joe Biden called for Kremlin leader Vladimir Putin to face a war crimes trial, adding he is now seeking further sanctions against Russia.

“This guy is brutal and what’s happening in Bucha is outrageous and everyone’s seen it,” he said in an impassioned speech last night.

Ukrainian officials have vowed to hunt down the “butchers of Bucha” after hundreds of dead civilians were discovered.

Furthermore, there are several Associated Press reports by journalists on the ground:

(AP) — Six charred bodies piled together were being investigated on Tuesday in Bucha, the town outside of Kyiv where graphic evidence of killings and torture has emerged following the withdrawal of Russian forces.

It was not clear who the people were or under what circumstances they were killed. One of the bodies was smaller than the others, likely a child, said Andrii Nebytov, head of police in the Kyiv region. One of the bodies had a gunshot wound to the head.

The pile of bodies seen by Associated Press journalists was just off a residential street, near a colorful and empty playground, and was visible to passersby as they warily went outdoors to collect aid.

“It’s horrible,” said Ukrainian Interior Minister Denys Monastyrsky at the scene, which included other journalists. The minister said Russian President Vladimir Putin should “go to hell.”

Genocide and the Next Red Line

By: Cliff Kincaid

How does it feel to watch the discovery of mass graves in Europe? This is something new for millions of Americans. But this is how world wars begin.

Once and for all, this Russian war on Ukraine, which began on February 24, demonstrates the completely ineffective nature of the United Nations, whose Security Council is powerless in the face of Russian membership and a Russian veto. It’s finally time to defund the U.N.

Meanwhile, the West’s “sweeping sanctions” on Russia, an effort to force it to withdraw its forces, have failed. Even without Kyiv, Russia has already captured significant new parts of Ukraine.

But instead of paying attention to Europe, some Americans drawn to an isolationist attitude prefer to watch hundreds of thousands of desperate people coming through our southern border and then wonder why Joe Biden’s administration doesn’t want to do something about that.  Perhaps we ought to grasp the connection between what’s happening in Europe and south of the border.

The United States is encouraging Ukrainians to continue fighting, but they are not being given enough weapons to win. Major parts of their country are in ruins and dead bodies litter the streets. The massacre of civilians in the Ukrainian city of Bucha is the latest example.

To make matters worse, some so-called “conservatives” are siding with Putin and his “special military operation” against an alleged Nazi regime in Kyiv.

Any American who assisted the Russians in word or deed will have to answer for these crimes.  And that includes Hillary Clinton, whose Russian re-set occurred when she was Secretary of State under Obama/Biden. Putin followed that with his first invasion of Ukraine in 2014. He was advertising the future, which we captured in our book, Back from the Dead: The Return of the Evil Empire.

Ukraine President Zelensky calls it “genocide,” a sensational charge but based in fact and attributed to Putin’s so-called brain, the Russian philosopher Alexander Dugin.

Please Slap Me in the Face

By: Cliff Kincaid

http://www.usasurvival.org/blog/please-slap-me-in-the-face

Will Smith slapped Chris Rock for insulting his wife. China Joe is insulting America on a daily basis, contradicting himself, and then getting angry. His erratic conduct is dangerous for America and the world.

Despite disasters at home and abroad, including a foreign war, record debt levels, soaring shipping costs, rising crime, surging inflation, and an educated idiot Supreme Court nominee, at least 40 percent of the American people support Brain Dead Biden. No wonder books for dummies are so popular with Americans.

The latest example of Biden’s cognitive impairment came when he said Putin “cannot remain in power” in Russia and quickly said he wasn’t advocating regime change.​

The Biden regime then lied about what Biden said, claiming he was against Putin exercising power over other countries. Then Biden declared he wasn’t backing down.

In my view, neither Putin nor Biden should remain in power.

A Wall Street Journal writer said Biden’s original statement could spark a nuclear war, and Russia has more nukes than us. Why? Because liberals have agreed to bad “arms control” agreements with the Russians.  Biden is speaking from a position of weakness.

Speaking of bad arms control agreements, Biden, who once wrote an article about how he loved the New World Order, is so brain dead that he continues to pursue a nuclear deal with Iran after it launched 12 ballistic missiles at the American consulate at Erbil, Iraq.

Reds Turn on Putin

By: Cliff Kincaid

www.usasurvival.org

Some communists have turned on Vladimir Putin. An article in the CPUSA’s People’s World now proclaims:

Putin regime emerges as the main danger to global peace and security

Somehow, somewhere, in the upper reaches of the hierarchy of the world communist movement, a decision has been made that Putin is doing more harm than good to the communist cause. The invasion has backfired.

The CPUSA had previously been agitating against NATO and Nazis in Ukraine. Now their tune has changed. Why?

Here’s what the article by John Bachtell says:

  • By invading Ukraine and seeking to redraw internationally recognized borders violently based on Great Russian chauvinism, the Putin regime has emerged as the main danger to global peace and international law at this moment. Global collective unity is required on the order of the WWII anti-fascist alliance to end the invasion and in solidarity with the Russian people to oust Putin from power.

Bachtell, a major figure in the CPUSA, has concluded that Putin has departed from communist orthodoxy and has instead embraced Russian nationalism, not communism. Bechtel calls for regime change in Russia!

Russia Has Won the War

By: Cliff Kincaid

http://www.usasurvival.org/blog/what-comes-next-after-russias-victory

I received an email about an Alaskan cruise. You better go before Putin takes Alaska back for Russia. Biden won’t stop him.

Putin has no soul and Biden has no brain. That’s my position. But Biden’s handlers are smart enough to know that they don’t want to offend Putin by supporting the freedom fighters in Ukraine too vigorously. They go through the motions of providing some weapons to some fighters in some areas of the country under direct Russian assault. 

But planes and a no-fly-zone, which could turn the tide, are off the table. That means Ukraine can’t win. It’s another no-win war.

Ukraine loses more and more territory to Russia and is now engaged in “negotiations” to end the war on Russia’s terms. This means Ukraine will be neutralized and Russia will dominate Europe. Pope Francis has stepped forward, to provide religious cover for Putin’s victory. That’s what the “negotiations” are all about.

Don’t believe the TV generals who say Putin is losing and is in a “desperate” situation because he has lost several thousand soldiers and key generals. Putin doesn’t care about loss of life. He certainly doesn’t care about Ukrainian losses and refugees.

Ukraine is lost. The country has been devastated. What is happening is a continuation of the war against Ukraine that Russia launched in 2014, when Obama was president and Biden was vice-president. They knew what was coming. Our CIA knew what was coming.

They just had to wait until they could get Trump out of office for the war to begin. The Russians accomplished that through the use of their phony dossier, provided to Hillary and the Democrats for political purposes.

Putin Has No Soul, Biden Has No Brain

By: Cliff Kincaid

Christians and Jews are being killed so fast that the dead of Mariupol, Ukraine are being buried in mass graves. Hospitals are being bombed. Today, it was reported that a pregnant Ukrainian woman died, along with her unborn baby. So sad. Let’s move along.

Niall Ferguson, a leading historian and intellectual, says Ukraine’s resistance will be “crushed” because the Biden Administration is weak and intimidated by Putin.

By any objective standard, President Biden should be impeached on national security grounds. He could also be removed from office because of cognitive impairment.

Amazingly, I am hearing from Ukrainian-Americans who think Biden has helped Ukraine more than any other politician in the world.

Evidence to the contrary includes a Politico story that a Pentagon effort to send more U.S. military trainers to Ukraine was scrapped in December “amid White House fears of provoking Russia.”

Remember that the Democrats accused Trump of being a Russian agent. Democrats said they were pro-Ukraine. They didn’t mean that, either.  

Meanwhile, Iranian missiles have hit the U.S. Consulate in the northern Iraqi city of Erbil, while the U.S. special envoy to North Korea, is warning of mounting North Korean nuclear threats. The State Department notes that North Korea launched ballistic missiles on February 26 and March 4, described as “tests of a new DPRK [North Korea] intercontinental ballistic missile system,” the State Department says.

All of this is possible because of Communist China and Russia.
