State Department Reportedly Revokes Visa Of Magnitsky Act Campaigner

Source: NPR

The State Department has reportedly revoked a visa for British citizen Bill Browder, a hedge-fund manager-turned human-rights activist responsible for the Magnitsky Act. The 2012 U.S. law is aimed at punishing Russian officials believed responsible for the death in a Moscow prison of Sergei Magnitsky, who was allegedly beaten and denied medical care.

The cancelling of Browder's visa came on the same day that the Kremlin issued yet another international arrest warrant for him via Interpol.

The Magnitsky Act, which freezes the assets and bans visas for certain Russians, including those close to Vladimir Putin "touched off a nasty confrontation with the Kremlin, and the two sides have been trying ever since to undermine the credibility of the other. Recently, however, Russian prosecutors have taken that effort to a remarkable new level, claiming that Mr. Magnitsky was actually murdered by Mr. Browder," according to The New York Times.

Heads up: @Billbrowder will be on @AliVelshi today at 3 to discuss the Trump administration pulling his visa in tandem with Russia.

Gowdy told Kushner he could leave anytime which he did b4 DEMS had finished questioning him

On one occasion, three sources said, Republican Representative Trey Gowdy told Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and White House aide, that he was testifying voluntarily and could leave whenever he liked. After about two-and-a-half hours, one of the sources said, Kushner took the cue and left before Democrats had finished questioning him. Kushner’s lawyer and Gowdy did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The tax extension deadline came & went. Trump didnt share his return. MSM forgot 2 ask

"Reporters have stopped hounding Trump to turn over his tax returns, which amounts to a victory for the president"

SNIP

Monday was the deadline for President Trump to file his 2016 federal tax return. Ordinarily, a president would make the document public. Trump did not, which is unsurprising.

What is notable is that the media forgot to ask.

Among dozens of questions posed to Trump during an impromptu news conference in the Rose Garden on Monday were several about tax policy but none about his own filings, which were, at one time, hotly pursued by the media.

That Trump was spared a single inquiry about his tax return, for which he had received a filing extension, is a testament to his highly effective burial of the issue. He has stalled or refused to release tax documents so many times that the pressure is off.

While propagating his birther conspiracy theory about President Barack Obama and mulling over a White House bid in 2011, Trump told ABC: “I may tie my tax returns — I'd love to give my tax returns — I may tie my tax returns into Obama's birth certificate.”

You know what happened. Obama released his birth certificate; Trump held on to his tax returns.

“If I decide to run for office, I'll produce my tax returns, absolutely,” Trump said in an interview on Irish television in 2014. “I would love to do that.”

In January 2016, when he was running for office, Trump told NBC that “we're working on that right now. I have very big returns, as you know, and I have everything all approved and beautiful, and we'll be working on that over the next period of time. . . . At the appropriate time, you'll be very satisfied.”

Why is Bill Browder Banned from America? Visa Revoked

Source: National Review

Browder is a driver behind these Magnitsky acts, and Putin hates him for it, understandably. Twice in 2013, he tried to add Browder to Interpol’s wanted list, and twice he failed, because Interpol knew that Putin was politically motivated. Browder is not a criminal. He is an anti-criminal, which is why Putin targets him.


In 2014, Putin tried again — no dice. Last summer, Browder testified against him before the Judiciary Committee in the U.S. Senate, to damning effect. Obviously ticked, Putin tried again. This time, Interpol had Browder’s name on the list for a month, before deleting it.


In the wake of Canada’s new Magnitsky act, Putin has tried again. Tried for a fifth time. Interpol has accepted his request. Worse, the U.S. government seems in partnership with the Kremlin: Our government has revoked Browder’s visa. (American-born, Browder is a British citizen.) What the …? Let this error be corrected speedily. It’s Putin’s killers and thieves who should be barred from the U.S., not their nemesis, Browder.

Dear DEMS! Pay no attention to nay-sayers & people with agenda who wish our party ill.

It seems the new MEMO/MEME is that DEM Party is in trouble.
MSM really wants to go with this memo meme. GOP really would like to run with this meme memo.
Putin trolls/bots also running away with this gaslighting memo meme.
Heck even Donald is promulgating this memo meme or meme memo calling us the democrat party and saying we are in trouble.
Is the memo d'jour.

All of the above WISH we were in trouble.
They are gaslighting us. THEY ARE PROJECTING.
Plus it is a form of both parties are the same.
They have been able to suppress our voters and are afraid of us.
They don't like that our party has lots of diversity. Thus trying to control us & our narrative.


MY BALLAD TO DEMS


DEAR DEMS,

Pay no attention to nay-sayers & people with agendas who wish our party ill.
Our real task is to stop suppression. We got the numbers.
The future is in our hands. TOGETHER.
We together know all of this. Don't get gaslighted by people with agendas.


The only trouble DEMS need to contend with is voter suppression
(which MAGA by making ONLY WHITE VOTES while sending POC to the back of the bus.)
Plus we need to make sure Russia keeps out.
Other than that we are ready for 2018.

People telling us we got problems are gaslighting us and have an agenda to sabotage our party.
Anyone who says that the 2 parties are the same is lying & has an agenda.


People wish the DEM party was in trouble so they attack us, our party & our DEM figures & leaders.
They are not strong so seek to weaken us!
Our only problems are voter suppression (plus that eff up- Russian meddling/collusion last year).

Wondering why the Republicans desperately seek to suppress POC & DEMS from voting?
Because we got the numbers.


We got the numbers, why do you think the GOP is desperately suppressing our voters?
Why do you think the last 2 GOP presidents had to cheat to become prez?

Dear DEMS don't listen to people that speak of our party and us in the 3rd person.
With a tone of condemnation at the smallest slight
and lots of authoritarian phrases like DEMS Better do this,
& ready to give up at a moment's chance
or waste our time in endless fruitless disputes.


They give themselves away when they do that.
They are not our friends.
They want what we got.
We got the numbers.

Each of us makes our party battle-strong.
We are UNITED & READY.
We are the reason we are gonna KEEP THIS REPUBLIC.


CODA:


But don't argue with people on twitter about whether policies and laws are racist or sexist.
Argue with your City Council and your state reps and senators and Mayor and alderman.
And if you don't like how that argument went
Fire em.

Here are the four-star generals Donald Trump has publicly bashed!!!!

Four Trump Tweets from the article:

I was never a fan of Colin Powell after his weak understanding of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq = disaster. We can do much better!

General John Allen, who I never met but spoke against me last night, failed badly in his fight against ISIS. His record = BAD #NeverHillary

How can General Martin Dempsey tell Obama that delaying the Syria bombardment will have no consequences? He is no Patton or MacArthur.

We don't have the leadership, including the Generals (who just said the element of surprise does not matter) to attack anyone! Cool it!

McCain: Niger attack information 'may require a subpoena'

McCain: Niger attack information 'may require a subpoena'
http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/18/politics/john-mccain-niger-attack-response/index.html


SNIP/
The longtime senator forcefully argued that the Trump administration has not been forthcoming and needs to do a better job of keeping the committee up to speed.

"We did not know about Niger until it came out in the paper. We need to have a process of communications, which I've had with other administrations, of exchanging information and knowledge," he told reporters.
However, he said he had a "good conversation" with national security adviser H.R. McMaster Wednesday night and they're currently in the process of scheduling a briefing on the matter.

Asked Thursday how he felt about McCain's criticism -- that it was easier to get information under previous administrations -- McMaster said, "It hurt my feelings."
"I love and respect Sen. McCain," he said. "if Sen. McCain says we need to do a better job communicating with him...we're going to do it."

McCain also signaled that he might hold up defense nominations over the issue. He said he hadn't heard back from the administration after he and Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin sent a letter last week asking why recently approved sanctions against Russia haven't been implemented yet.

"Why do you think they go past the deadline on all of these things?" McCain asked reporters. "Because they think they can get away with it. That's why we say no nominations and we get the information we need."

Asked if he was holding up nominations until he gets answers just on Russia sanctions, McCain said, "On everything."
