Yes, It’s True. Putin Mentioned $400 MILLION Russia/Clinton Bribe/Money Laundering Scheme During Today’s Summit

A name was spoken today that likely sent chills down the spines of assorted globalist media in attendance at the Trump-Putin summit:  Bill Browder.

Browder is as shadowy a political/financial figure as you will find and is alleged to have funneled/laundered up to $400 MILLION dollars into the Clintons’ coffers. The media is purposely ignoring the Putin name-drop for good reason. Some of them are said to be personally implicated in the cover-up as well.


Browder, head of Hermitage Capital, also has ties to Fusion GPS and the Clinton Global Initiative – both foundational components of what would become the orchestrated Trump/Russia conspiracy the Establishment Media continues to use to try and halt Mr. Trump’s America-First agenda.

Please read the following 2017  Zero Hedge report carefully:

…Just weeks before the Trump Tower meeting, Russia’s general prosecutor had returned to the matter. On May 19, 2016, the office issued a statement that its investigation into purchases of shares in gas giant Gazprom by Browder’s Hermitage Fund and his investors, including Ziff Brothers, had found they evaded more than 1 billion rubles ($16 million) in Russian taxes, transferring the profits to Ziff-controlled companies overseas. Russian prosecutors said they suspected the transactions also may have violated U.S. law and that they planned to send an international-assistance request to the U.S. seeking a probe.

Veselnitskaya repeated those allegations in comments to the Russian press about the Magnitsky case at the time.

On June 4, 2017, Yuri Chaika, Russia’s general prosecutor, said on national television that his agency “has presented serious evidence of violations of the law by Browder and the Ziff brothers” to U.S. officials. There’s no indication of any U.S. response to that claim.

(It should also be noted that the fake Trump dossier originated in part via the anti-Brexit British government. Trump supported Brexit. The British elite did not. Mr. Browder is very well connected to the London-centered political hierarchy. (He was born in America but is a British citizen) Coincidence? You decide.)

On a possible related side note – Mr. Browder’s grandfather was head of Communist Party USA.



Sidenote #2 – Hermitage Capital was once the single largest portfolio investor in Russia until Browder and company fled following allegations by Russian officials of fraud/tax evasion.

Here is some of what Mr. Putin had to say on the subject of Browder’s connection to the Clintons and Clinton-Obama era U.S. intelligence officials:

For instance, we can bring up Mr. Browder, in this particular case. Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over $1.5 billion in Russia and never paid any taxes neither in Russia or the United States and yet the money escaped the country. They were transferred to the United States. They sent [a] huge amount of money, $400,000,000, as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton. Well, that’s their personal case. It might have been legal, the contribution itself but the way the money was earned was illegal. So we have solid reason to believe that some [US] intelligence offers accompanied and guided these transactions. So we have an interest in questioning them.

What if foreign nations like Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, etc., have over time successfully bought and paid for high-ranking U.S. officials? Was it not Bill Clinton who took illegal campaign donations from Chinese interests? Was it not George W. Bush who ignored the Saudi government’s links to 9-11? Or Hillary Clinton who sold a significant portion of America’s uranium holdings to Russian interests? What of Barack Obama’s odd obsession with cozying up to the likes of “death to America” Iran?

And what if Donald Trump, a true outsider well beyond the control of the D.C. power structure, is viewed as a direct threat by the media and political elites, who might weaken or even cripple, their ongoing globalist cash cow? Would they not be motivated to destroy him?


It is often said that in the face of a coverup to follow the money. Bill Browder, the grandson of the head of Communist Party USA and deep pockets supporter of the Clintons and the Obamas,  is definitely a big step or two in that direction.

Soros Funds Clinton and MB Obama Movement To Stop Kavanaugh

July 17, 2018  by ZeroHedge


Today’s edition of “George Soros Meddles” is brought to you by ten-week-old political advocacy group Demand Justice– a Soros-linked organization which has pledged $5 million towards a “multi-platform” campaign to stop Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the US Supreme Court.

Headed by former Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon and longtime Obama aide Christopher Kang as chief counsel, Demand Justice was created and financed by nonprofit organization the Sixteen Thirty Fund,” which has received millions from the Open Society Policy Center (OSPC), according to the Daily Callers Kevin Daley and Andrew Kerr.

As we reported two weeks ago, Demand Justice intends to fight “Trump’s hateful vision for America” by opposing his Judicial picks across the country – including the Supreme Court.

The campaign will feature television spots promoting embattled Democratic Senate incumbents in West Virginia, Indiana, and North Dakota, who face competitive Republican challengers this November.

They will also run ads in Maine and Alaska, urging GOP Sens. Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski to oppose the nomination. Collins and Murkowski are pro choice moderates who have broken with their party on Obamacare repeal and federal funding for Planned Parenthood. The spots urge the senators to protect abortion access by withholding support for nominees who oppose the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. –Daily Caller

The Sixteen Thirty Fund collected some $2.2 million in contributions from the OSPC between 2012 and 2016 – while more recent records are not available. The OSPC, meanwhile, is virtually indistinct from Soros’s Open Society Foundations (OSF), the 87-year-old’s grant-giving and philanthropic network.

The [Sixteen Thirty] Fund is largely financed by a handful of donors. Financial statementsfiled with state oversight officials in 2014 show just three contributors accounted for 70 percent — or some $11.5 million — of the Fund’s total donations and grant revenue. Disclosure forms filed with the same agency in 2016 present similar facts. Fewer than five donors gave $13.3 million to the Fund, representing 63 percent of their donations.

One of those donors is the OSPC. The Center’s tax forms show the Soros group gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Fund each year between 2012 and 2016the last year in which records are publicly accessible. The Center gave the Fund $350,000 in 2012, $772,000 in 2013, $125,000 in 2014, $550,000 in 2015, and $481,483 in 2016. –Daily Caller

The Caller reports that the OSPC has no staff of its own – rather, Open Society Foundation employees are compensated for work done on OSPC efforts.

“OSPC has no employees,” the form reads. “Employees of Open Society [Foundations], a related section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, perform services for OSPC. OSPC advances funds to Open Society [Foundations] for their services based on the time they spend on OSPC matters. Their compensation is determined by Open Society [Foundations], and is based on market comparability data and is documented in Open Society [Foundations’] records.”

The Sixteen Thirty Fund created Demand Justice in May of this year in order to counter a network of conservative advocacy groups which “advertise and organize around judicial confirmations,” according to the Caller.

Republicans have significantly outpaced Democrats in this space in recent years, given conservative voters’ sustained interest in the federal courts.

Executive director Brian Fallon told The New York Times that DJ hopes to “sensitize rank-and-file progressives to think of the courts as a venue for their activism and a way to advance the progressive agenda.” –Daily Caller

Hillary Clinton threw her support behind her former Press Secretary’s new political machine in a late June tweet:

“Long after Donald Trump is no longer our President, his takeover of our courts will keep alive his hateful vision for America for decades to come,” their website reads. “Trump’s judges are overwhelmingly white men. Many are not at all qualified for their posts. And they consistently hold extreme, right-wing views.”

If we truly want to stop Trump, we can’t surrender this fight.” -Demand Justice

Since the Sixteen Thirty Fund serves as Demand Justice’s fiscal sponsor, it doesn’t submit its own tax returns or disclose its supporters. As such, beyond the Soros network’s $2.2 million contribution to Sixteen Thirty over five years – it’s difficult to determine how much money individual donors like Soros have channeled directly to Demand Justice since its inception ten weeks ago.

The National Council of Nonprofits says that fiscal sponsors provide “fiduciary oversight, financial management, and other administrative services” for its dependents, like Demand Justice. As such, many grants or donations DJ receives are awarded by way of the Fund. Both organizations are based out of the same Washington, D.C., address.

Supporters can also give to DJ through ActBlue Civics, a major fundraising platform for leftwing causes.

Given this structure, it is difficult to know how much money individual donors like Soros have channeled to Demand Justice. Daily Caller

Meanwhile, Capital Research noted last month that “coupled with the fact that Fallon recently spoke at the Atlanta Conference of the Democracy Alliance, a shadowy network of left-leaning donors including George Soros, it is clear that Demand Justice could be well on its way to becoming something much bigger than the obscure nonprofit it is now. As a (c)(4), it is allowed to engage in unlimited lobbying. But it can also support or oppose candidates for election (as long as that activity isn’t the organization’s primary purpose, which currently means spending no more than 49 percent of expenditures on electioneering).”

And just like that, the newly formed, Soros-linked, Obama and Clinton alum operated nonprofit has sprung up with a $5 million “multi-platform effort” to prevent Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s ascension to the US Supreme Court.

3 Things Christian Leaders Can Learn from Trump

There are plenty of things followers of Jesus cannot learn from Donald Trump. That is self-evident. But there are things he can teach us, especially those of us in leadership.

First, though, let me list some things that the president cannot teach us, including: 1) how to cultivate humility; 2) developing effective tools for personal Bible study; 3) treating your opponents with civility and respect; 4) how to avoid divorce; 5) keys to sexual purity; 6) how to deny yourself; and 7) developing a distinctive hairstyle for TV preachers. (Wait. That one might work!)

Yet there are many things the president can teach us – again, speaking of leaders in particular – even if we don’t like the specific way he has modeled some of these things.

Here’s a short list.

1. Don’t avoid confrontation. We often try so hard to be “nice.” At all costs, we do not want to offend. But sometimes confrontation is necessary and important, and there are scores of biblical examples for this.

Nathan the prophet confronted King David (2 Samuel 12). Paul confronted Peter (Galatians 2). Proverbs even says, “Better is open rebuke than hidden love” (27:5). And the New Testament calls us to “speak the truth in love” (Ephesians 4:15).

Again, I’m not implying that all of Trump’s confrontational tactics are called for or that the way he confronts is always right. But it’s clear that he will speak up and speak out when he feels the need, no matter how uncomfortable things become. Mixed with grace and wisdom, this is something we must learn to do as well. Don’t be so afraid of uncomfortable confrontations.

2. Don’t be a slave of public opinion. It’s becoming increasingly clear that Trump controls the media much more than the media control Trump. This is not to say that he doesn’t care about polling and negative reports. Nor is this to say that we should turn a deaf ear to the voices of others. Shepherds need to be attentive to their sheep.

But all too often, as Christian leaders, we are more concerned with human opinion than divine opinion, more wanting to please other people than to please the Lord. And all too often, we tell people what they want to hear rather than what they need to hear.

And how many pastors and leaders are slaves to congregational numbers, to budgetary constraints, to the sensitivities of the community?

“I dare not speak out on this, lest I lose long-term members. I dare not take this stand, lest our donor base evaporates. I dare not get involved in this controversy, lest the community view me negatively.”

This is slavery, not freedom. Trump can teach us a lesson here too. Do what’s right because it’s right, not because it’s convenient.

In the oft-quoted words of Dr. King, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

3. Don’t be afraid to ride out the storm. Some would call this stubbornness, others conviction, others foolishness. But it’s clear that Trump is not afraid to take a stand, take some hits (as in day and night media bombardment) and hold to his guns, believing that, over time, he will be proven right.

Again, he has done this at times when I wish he would not. He has appeared to be tone deaf. He has alienated people he might have won over. He has seemed to be more pigheaded than pragmatic, hence my caveats.

But he has also proven that if you stand for a particular principle, then refuse to move from that principle regardless of how much flak you receive, you can ride out almost any storm.

How many times do we waffle when the pressure builds? How often do we cave in right before the breakthrough? How frequently are we marked by cowardice rather than courage?

Proverbs states, “If you falter in a time of trouble, how small is your strength!” (24:10)

President Trump sets an example of strength, whether you love him or loathe him, and that’s why so many have rallied around him.

We can learn a thing or two from him in the midst of his flaws and imperfections. And if we can merge courage and forthrightness and tenacity with Christlikeness, we will be unstoppable. (The truth be told, true Christlikeness requires courage and forthrightness and tenacity, does it not?)

And perhaps, as we stand strong and tall and unashamed, we’ll be able to teach our president a thing or two as well.

VIDEO Trump Defends Summit with Putin as ‘Bold American Diplomacy – $400M, Russia to Hillary Campaign – Hillary Troll

Donald Trump Defends Summit with Vladimir Putin as ‘Bold American Diplomacy

US President Donald Trump (L) and Russia's President Vladimir Putin reach out to shake hands before attending a joint press conference after a meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, on July 16, 2018. - The US and Russian leaders opened an historic summit in Helsinki, with Donald Trump promising …

President Donald Trump defended his decision to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, despite the ongoing Special Counsel investigation of Russia’s alleged attempt to influence the 2016 presidential election.

“I’m here today to continue the proud tradition of bold American diplomacy,” Trump said after meeting with Putin for two hours in Helsinki, Finland.

Trump said he was open to meeting with the Russian president again in the future.

“I would rather take a political risk in pursuit of peace than risk peace in pursuit of politics,” he said.

Trump described Russia as a “competitor” with the United States, adding that he considered that a “compliment.” He blamed “both sides” for the complicating the relationship between the two countries and promised to work for closer relations.

“Our relationship has never been worse than it is now,” he said. “However, that changed as of about four hours ago. I really believe that.”

The joint press conference with Putin was the first with an American president since George W. Bush’s press conference with Putin in 2008 in Sochi. President Obama had two joint press conferences with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, but none with Putin.

Despite interest from both leaders in cooperating on some issues, the press conference largely devolved into a focus on the ongoing investigation of whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia into the election.

Putin denied meddling in the 2016 election, revealing that Trump mentioned it in their conversation.

“The Russian state has never interfered and is not going to interfere into internal American affairs, including the election process,” he said.

Trump declined to directly criticize Putin for attempting to influence the presidential election, even when asked by a reporter to do so.

“I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today,” he said.

Trump blamed the Russia investigation for introducing complications into the relationship between the two countries.

“I think the probe is a disaster for our country. I think it’s kept us apart, it’s kept us separated,” he said, adding that the investigation was having a “negative impact” between Russia and the United States.


Collusion actually between US intelligence and Democrats

Russian President Vladimir Putin dropped a bombshell on Monday, accusing US intelligence operatives of funneling $400 million from Russia to the Hillary Clinton campaign.Putin addressed the Justice Department’s indictments of 12 Russian intelligence officials, and offered for FBI special counsel Robert Mueller to assist with Russia’s own investigation of the Trump-Russia collusion narrative.

“For instance, we can bring up Mr. Browder, in this particular case,” Putin said, referring to a British hedge fund CEO wanted by Interpol on behalf of the Russian government.

“Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over $1.5 billion in Russia and never paid any taxes neither in Russia or the United Statesand yet the money escaped the country. They were transferred to the United States. They sent [a] huge amount of money, $400,000,000, as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton.”

“Well that’s their personal case. It might have been legal, the contribution itself but the way the money was earned was illegal,” he continued. “So we have solid reason to believe that some [US] intelligence offers accompanied and guided these transactions. So we have an interest in questioning them.”

Additionally, Browder also has ties to Fusion GPS, the firm who created the notorious “Steele Dossier,” which we now know was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign to smear then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016.

“Here’s the bottom line: We have congressional testimony, under oath, that Clinton hired the same firm to smear Trump that Putin reportedly used to smear Magnitsky. Moreover, we also know that the Fusion GPS dossier relied on senior Russian government officials for much of the dirt it compiled, including ‘a senior Russian Foreign Ministry figure’ and a ‘former top level intelligence officer still active in the Kremlin.’ Together, those are bombshell revelations,” The Washington Post reported last year.

“Yet today, there is barely a peep in the mainstream media about the Clinton-Fusion-Putin connection.”



‘There’s no evidence when it comes to the actual facts,’ he said

Russia did not meddle with the 2016 U.S. election and never will, according to Russian President Vladimir Putin.“Once again, President Trump mentioned issue of the so-called interference of Russia with the American elections,” Putin said Monday during a press conference in Helsinki.“I had to reiterate things I said several times, including during our personal contacts, that the Russian state has never interfered and is not going to interfere in internal American affairs, including election process.”

Putin went on to say that no collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia ever took place.

“Could you name a single fact that definitively proves collusion?” he said. “This is nonsense. There’s no evidence when it comes to the actual facts, we have to be guided by facts not by rumors.”

Trump also echoed the sentiment, slamming FBI special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.“The probe is a disaster for our country… there was no collusion at all,” Trump said.

“We ran a brilliant campaign and that’s why I am President.”

When also asked if he wanted Trump to become the U.S. president, Putin responded, “Yes I did, because he was the one who wanted to normalize relations with Russia.”


Libs accuse president of being ‘treasonous,’ ‘afraid,’ ‘conspiratorial,’ and ’embarrassing’

The left went insane over President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin after they denied “Russian collusion” and interference in the 2016 U.S. election.Democrats and the media descended into meltdowns over the Helsinki meeting on Monday, calling Trump “treasonous,” “afraid,” and “embarrassing.”

Meanwhile, former Congressman Ron Paul, a notable critic of Trump’s foreign policy, viewed the summit as a success due to its diplomatic tone.

His son, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), another noteworthy anti-war statesman, also expressed his optimism over the meeting.

VIDEO Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Can’t Explain ‘Occupation of Palestine’ but Opposes It

NEW YORK, NY - JULY 12: Congressional nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stands with Zephyr Teachout after endorsing her for New York City Public Advocate on July 12, 2018 in New York City. The two liberal candidates held the news conference in front of the Wall Street bull in a show of …
Spencer Platt/Getty Images

Democratic-socialist and New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently sat down with PBS’s Margaret Hoover and offered up harsh criticism of Israel, then embarrassingly admitted she knows little about foreign affairs.


A partial transcript via Jewish Press follows:

HOOVER: You made one tweet or made one statement that referred to a killing by Israeli soldiers of civilians in Gaza and called it a massacre, which became a little bit controversial, but I haven’t seen anywhere, what is your position on Israel?

OCASIO-CORTEZ: Well, I believe absolutely in Israel’s right to exist. I am a proponent of the two-state solution. And for me, this is not a referendum, I think, on the state of Israel. For me, the lens through which I saw this incident, as an activist, as an organizer: If 60 people were killed in Ferguson, Missouri, if 60 people were killed in the South Bronx–unarmed–60 people were killed in Puerto Rico, I just look at that incident more through–through just, as an incident and to me it would just be completely unacceptable if that happened on our shores. But–

HOOVER: Of course, the dynamic there in terms of geopolitics and the Middle East is very different from people expressing their First Amendment right to protest.

OCASIO-CORTEZ: Well, yes, but I also think that what people are starting to see in the occupation of Palestine is just an increasing crisis of humanitarian conditions and that to me is just where I tend to come from on this issue.

HOOVER: You use the term “the occupation of Palestine.” What did you mean by that?

OCASIO-CORTEZ: Oh–I think, what I meant is that the settlements that are increasing in some of these areas and places where Palestinians are experiencing difficulty in access to housing and homes.

HOOVER: Do you think you can expand on that?

OCASIO-CORTEZ: Yeah, I think—I am not the expert on geopolitics on this issue. You know, for me, I’m a firm believer in finding a two-state solution in this issue. And I’m happy to sit down with leaders on both of these… for me, I just look at things through a human rights lens, and I may not use the right words–I know this is a very intense issue.

HOOVER: That’s very honest, and you’re going to—and when you get to Washington and you’re an elected member of Congress, you’ll have an opportunity to talk to people on all sides and visit Israel and visit the West Bank.

OCASIO-CORTEZ: Absolutely. And especially with the district that I represent, I come from the South Bronx, I come from a Puerto Rican background. And Middle Eastern politics is not exactly at my kitchen table every night. But I also recognize that this is an intensely important issue for people in my district, for Americans across the country. And I think at least what is important to communicate is that I am willing to listen. And that I’m willing to learn and evolve on this issue as I think many Americans are.

VIDEO Dr. Kelli Ward: ‘Bad people’ can use children to escape into US – “AZ in DC, not DC in AZ”

July 15, 2018



Jun 13, 2018

In the wake of June 12th’s shooting of an Arizona border patrol agent in Santa Cruz County, the Ward for Senate campaign today released its new digital ad, “Relentless,” highlighting Dr. Kelli Ward’s commitment to securing our border and protecting Arizonans from violent drug cartels and human traffickers.

Dr. Kelli Ward on KJZZ: Arizona voters want “AZ in DC, not DC in AZ”

Jul 12, 2018

Dr. Kelli Ward discusses her proven track record in the Arizona State Senate, the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” border policy, transitioning to a merit-based legal immigration system, repealing Obamacare, and improving the VA and taking care of our veterans.

Dr. Kelli Ward: ‘Bad people’ can use children to escape into US

Sign the petition to STOP the Flake/McSally push for amnesty and demand we build the wall!

Senator Flake confirmed that he and a gang of liberal legislators struck “a deal” on immigration that they are pushing to be signed into law…

Of course, this plan fails to fix immigration or solve the problems that currently plague our border — and it certainly does not include plans for the construction of The Wall.

That’s because Jeff Flake, Martha McSally and other pretend conservatives aren’t really concerned with solving the problems that are such a concern to most Americans.

That’s why it’s crucial we contact Congress on this issue right away. Take action now!

Chinese Choosing Homeschooling, Even Though It’s Illegal


It’s illegal, but these Chinese parents say they so much want the best for their children, they’re willing to homeschool them, hiding from the government on an as-needed basis.

Homeschooling has been booming for years in America, where there are millions, and there are several countries in Europe where’s it is thriving even though officials don’t like it much at all.

Now a report South China Morning Post has detailed the relatively small – but growing – homeschool community there.

Most Chinese parents look forward to having their children in universities, then landing a job in finance, medicine, or engineering.

Tsang Tsz-Kin, however, a dance teacher, prefers to have his son, Ocean, 10, pursuing what he wants to do.

“People who love doing their jobs will think nothing of working overtime,” Tsang said in the report.

His son “watches online pingshu performances every day. He likes reading the stories aloud with facial expressions, hand movements and vocal intonations. He could be a DJ when he grows up.”

Classes include Chinese, English, math and more, with his father as well as private tutors and arts teachers.

The Post report explained, “There are no official statistics on the number of parents homeschooling their children in China, and unofficial figures vary widely. The latest figures released by 21st Century Education Research Institute, a think tank, estimated there were 6,000 children being homeschooled in the country in 2016, up from 2,000 in 2013. However the WeChat account of China Home-schooling – an online alliance of educators and parents – has more than 23,000 members.”

The report noted that there’s been so much interest the nation’s Education Ministry issued a gentle hint recently that “it’s forbidden to conduct homeschooling education to replace the compulsory education…”

But China is so large, and there are so many people, homeschoolers simply choose to go about their business.

“Ocean’s mother, Cissy Ji, from Qingdao, in the eastern province of Shandong, says Ocean’s hukou – his household registration, which governs where he can access public services – is in her hometown because he was born there,” the report explained.

“He studied kindergarten in Qingdao and later primary school [until he finished the first semester of Primary Three] in Shenzhen [a city in southern China bordering Hong Kong] after we moved there. Although it’s against the law not to send your children to school in China, it’s difficult to trace such cases because [people move around the country],” Ji told the newspaper.

One reason many homeschool parents cite is the “mind-numbing indoctrination” of government classrooms, the report said.

Other parents choose to fund private educational centers for their children. One recent development includes a 3,000-square meter structure with 80 teachers and more than 300 students.
