Earlier today, Bill Browder, American-born British billionaire and also grandson of the notorious CPUSA leader Earl Browder, posted the above picture on Twitter from inside a conference on "human rights challenges" at the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo, Norway. Hosted by the Norwegian Helsinki Committee, the conference was billed as an "international hearing" into the death of Browder's longtime accountant, Sergei Magnitsky, in Russian state custody. Browder's tweet reads: "Magnitsky denial filmmaker complaining how unfairly he's been treated in his ambitions to spread FSB version that Magnitsky wasn't murdered." 

Tsk, tsk. I don't know what filmmaker Andrei Nekrasov said -- he was not permitted to record the proceedings -- but you would think that whatever it was, Browder could take it: five scheduled minutes of dissent in an uninterrupted battery of pro-Browder speakers...

Note to readers: This essay originally ran on January 17, 2017, but in light of new context in cascading sex scandals there may be reason to take another look at the whole story. Also, I will add a warning about obscene photos below.

Behold the Washington Post Style section of January 3, 2017.

All but the trimmings of Page One and Two belong to a woman named Amanda Kleinman, who, we are told, is the leading victim of the headline's "Troll Patrol" -- online harassment resulting from that "viral fake news conspiracy theory" known as "Pizzagate." 

What is "Pizzagate?" Whatever it is, it is either not on the media menu (a la Breitbart);...

On November 14, 2017, a red-hot Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) scorched Attorney General Jeff Sessions with a series of questions arising from this Justice Department's failure to restore the lost principle of one law for all citizens.

To date, all public signs point to a developing crisis that no one who pulled the lever for Trump in 2016 ever imagined: The Trump Justice Department under AG Sessions appears to be placing the Clinton machine, the Obama administration, and the "Intelligence Community" beyond accountability, despite  masses of evidence of the crudest corruption and lawlessness. Resurgent congressional pressure along with some shrewd reporting are making the need to investigate grotesquely obvious -- except to AG Sessions. And that is the rub. If Hillary Clinton had been elected last November, doubtless her attorney general would have long ago ensured that all of this same evidence disappeared. Today, Donald Trump's attorney general seems to be trying to do much the...

I was tremendously impressed by the news broken by The Intercept, confirmed by NBC, and run by many outlets (but not Breitbart), that President Trump had the good sense, awareness and moxie to ask CIA Director Mike Pompeo to meet with former NSA official William Binney to discuss a report by Binney and a group of former intelligence professionals that directly challenges the whole "Russian hack" story. Bottom line: it was a "leak" from the inside, not a "hack" from the outside.

Of course, such analysis blows up the political narrative we are supposed to accept by rote: "The Russians" cyber-invaded the DNC and John Podesta's email account to help Donald Trump win the election; thus, the narrative goes, Trump's election was "delegitimized."

Thirteen years after the Islamic ritual murder of Theo van Gogh on the streets of Amsterdam, few honor Theo van Gogh because few speak the truth about Islam.

The lies multiply and grow, proclaimed and enshrined by dishonorable minions of deceit.    

Can a civilization recover when all of its institutions are corrupt?
