Tillerson didn’t get the “Order of Friendship” for nothing.

Bill Browder, he is this guy. Born in America, citizen of the Empire of the Britishes. Also, he was at one time the biggest foreign investor in Russia. Browder’s firm, Hermitage Capital Management, uncovered MASSIVE fraud committed by Vladimir Putin and his oligarchs, and Browder and his Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky were working to expose the corruption they found. In response, Putin’s thugs tortured Magnitsky to death in prison (AHEM “ALLEGEDLY”).

Browder testified in July in the Senate Judiciary Committee on the Magnitsky Act, the law passed to punish the very same Russian human rights abusers/oligarchs who committed all the fraud and who murdered (LMAO “ALLEGEDLY”) Magnitsky in prison. Browder is basically the reason the law exists, in America, and also in the UK, Estonia and (very recently!) Canada. As ShareBlue’s Matthew Chapman notes on Twitter, Putin and his pals have looted zillions of Russian ameros from their own country, and they like to stick that money overseas. ($230 million in this case, which they gave themselves as a “tax refund.”) Because of the Magnitsky Act, they can’t get to their moneys, which probably means all their Netflix accounts are expired for lack of payment. You can see why Putin would be GRRRRRR and hate Bill Browder and wish he was dead. (Sadly, we mean that literally.)

In response to the Magnitsky Act, Putin banned Americans from adopting BOUNCY RUSSIAN BABIES. Last summer, a clown car full of Russians squeezed into an office in Trump Tower to talk to Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner about BOUNCY RUSSIAN BABIES, which is code for repealing the Magnitsky Act, which is a big step in repealing all the sanctions currently on Russia. Indeed, one of the many papers Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya brought to that Trump Tower meeting, along with whatever dirt she allegedly had to share on Hillary Clinton — “If it’s what you say, I LOVE IT,” said Junior, about doing anti-Hillary conspiracies with Russia! — was a fake “report” on why Bill Browder is a big meanie and a liar and the real Zodiac killer. As Natasha Bertrand notes at Business Insider, Russia gave Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Kremlin) a very similar memo during one of his traitor trips to Russia.

So anyway, Rex Tillerson’s State Department just revoked Browder’s visa, and they weirdly did it the same day the Kremlin notified Interpol that it was very angry with Browder and wanted him picked up.

Once more, with feeling: THE STATE DEPARTMENT JUST REVOKED BROWDER’S VISA, THE SAME DAY THE KREMLIN PUT BROWDER ON INTERPOL’S BIG LIST OF NAUGHTIES.

Interpol told Putin to fuck off the first four times he tried this, because Putin is a trifling dick, but we guess the fifth time is the charm! (Actually, Russia used a loophole to get Browder on Interpol’s list. Don’t feel like typing it all out, just click here for a sexplanation.)

And why does Russia want Browder arrested? Oh, because now they say BILL BROWDER and an MI6 agent killed Sergei Magnitsky in the Russian prison controlled by Putin’s thugs. Likely story! The real reason is because Putin hates Bill Browder for exposing him for the fraud he is, and the Magnitsky Act is one of the few things that really does hurt him and his regime.

Is this all weird and bad and fucked up? Yes, it is! Is the world terrible right now? Sure thing! WHY THE FUCK IS REX TILLERSON’S STATE DEPARTMENT SIGNING ON TO VLADIMIR PUTIN’S GLOBAL VENDETTA AGAINST BILL BROWDER? Oh, maybe it’s just that little thing about how Donald Trump is a Russian intelligence asset. (GIGGLES “ALLEGEDLY.”)

What? Trump isn’t enforcing the new Russian sanctions bill Congress passed, either. That would make tears come out of Putin’s cry hole!

For more on how horrifying this is, please read this full thread from Matthew Chapman at ShareBlue. He notes that “restricting [Browder’s] movement” is a good way for Putin to track the guy and kill him, not that Putin would ever have anybody killed for political reasons.

Maybe the State Department just did a boner by revoking Browder’s visa. (“Boner” is an old-timey word for “mistake.”) If so, they need to rectify it immediately.

Or maybe State meant to do this, and goddamn us patriots for noticing.

Is this what America being great again feels like?

    I added a dollop of Sour Cream cos that’s how Anna Elizabeth rolls. I’m pretty happy with the soup, the texture is amazing, it has a nice, rounded peppery bite, and it’s filling.

    • SisterArtemis

      Looks and sounds delicious, and I’m not even that much of a lentil girl. I don’t know why we never spiced it up more, back when it was one of my fall-back meals for hard times. Probably wouldn’t have tired of it so quickly. You’ve inspired me: I will endeavor to make a flavorful spicy lentil soup this winter.

      • Anna Elizabeth, Diva

        Yay! Thank you. :) I used lots of Black Pepper, some Balsamic Vinegar, a tablespoon of Brown Sugar, chives,Oregano, salt, and Garlic Salt.

        Inexpensive to eat for Poors, aye.

        • puredog

          Although I loves me some sour cream, I find I can get almost the same bang out of yogurt and save my vices for deployment elsewhere.

          • Anna Elizabeth, Diva

            Oh, that’s not a bad idea. :) Out of curiosity, have you tried yogurt on Baked potatoes? That’s really why I bought the Sour Cream.

          • puredog

            You can basically use yogurt for a garnish on anything you would ordinarily garnish with sour cream. Potatoes, yep. Borscht, yep. Latkes, yep. Some yogurts do the job better than others; I usu use lo-fat, because that’s what I have around. I figure if I were going to use full-fat, I’d just go with the sour cream anyway.

          • Anna Elizabeth, Diva

            Thank you. :) I will give yogurt as a topping a try on my next shopping trip. I welcome new ideas for food variety and for eating healthy. :)

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2016/12/13/what-is-the-russian-order-of-friendship-and-why-does-trumps-pick-for-secretary-of-state-have-one/

    You don’t have to be a close friend of President Vladimir Putin to be awarded Russia’s Order of Friendship, much less the globe-trotting head of one of the world’s most powerful corporations.

    You can be a basketball coach who couldn’t cut it in Cleveland. Or a museum director in Minnesota who’s just happy to know that Putin isn’t angry at him for holding on to a large collection of Russian paintings.

    So although there may be plenty of valid concerns about the Russian entanglements of Rex Tillerson, the chief executive of ExxonMobil, who has been tapped by President-elect Donald Trump to be the next secretary of state, his 2013 Order of Friendship award, based on its own merits, isn’t necessarily one of them.

    Tillerson won the award after signing deals with the state-owned Russian oil company Rosneft, whose chief, Igor Sechin, is seen as Putin’s loyal lieutenant. The partnership had begun a drilling program in the Arctic’s Kara Sea, where Exxon made a find, and had agreed to explore shale oil areas of West Siberia and the deep waters of the Black Sea. But then U.S. sanctions against Russia over the annexation of Crimea kicked in, and the partnership was put on hold.

      “You’re a lot nicer than the last soldier I spoke to, well, he was dead, but you know. Also black so that’s you know I couldn’t have done this anyway, we don’t let them in. What? That’s true! That’s really the rule Bannon and Miller said so and you know it was my idea. You’re wife’s hot too.”

      • Lefty Wright

        Obviously fake. That statement makes too much sense to be coming from Trump.

      Don’t give him ideas. He’s already got a hard-on for doing wrestling choke-slams against “liberal” CNN.

    Will Donald “Killer” Trump call Mr. Browder’s widow?

      Everything else they’ve done has been, why not this?

  • Stulexington

    Frankly with all the Russian spies freely flying in and out of the country even when someone who actually cared about banning them was in the oval office, maybe the US isn’t such a safe place for Bowler to be anyway. It’s still horrifying that they’d be so blatant about their collusion while Mueller is sniffing around, makes me worry that an accident is planned for him.

    • Three Finger Salute

      Bowder, not Bowler. Although I’m sure Kingpin Vlad wants to beat him with a perfect strike

      • An Outhouse for the résistance

        If everyone refers to him as Bowler, maybe that will confuse the Russian assassins.

  • Weird Fishes

    Follow the money. Putin and his gang of associates (AKA the “gang”) get what they want, Donnie and the Over the Hill Gang (AKA “Bronzo and the Grifters”) get what they want. Maybe a tower in Moscow, too, who knows!

      In soviet Russia, rich eat you.

      • Three Finger Salute

        Soviet America also too.

        • Rocket Pony Ron

          Difference is, in Soviet America, proletariat stands up and says, ‘Eat me first!’

          • WotsAllThisThen

            We’re tired of people in the inner city getting eaten first. What about the forgotten man?

  • Flashman

    Russia worrying about Putin’s enemies dying in prison makes as much sense as Comey getting fired for being unfair to Hillary.

  • Lorindel Ó Loingsigh

    So essentially we’re supposed to sit here and not say “Boo” as Vlad Putin has Americans assassinated and gets the shitgibbon to help him with it? Honestly, we’re getting to the point where the time for just typing about this shit is over. I’m proud of McCain, though. He’s calling them on their shit.

    • Three Finger Salute

      At least on this board, you’re not supposed to recommend anything that doesn’t have the requisite tongue-in-cheek disclaimer of “with votes.” I think we’re past the point where even without votes will serve any purpose, though. The oligarchs own the military and the police forces, and even the new cutting-edge technologies like drones and whatnot that allow for mass disposal of the untermenschen without a person having to fire a single shot. We can’t really do anything about it at this point. Pick your poison. I’ll go with total planetary destruction because it’s swift and gets over with a lot sooner than an enduring and torturous life under a totalitarian puppet regime. I’m at a point where I hope that 2020 is “hindsight” for how we got here, but that we don’t go any further into a 2021.

      • Lorindel Ó Loingsigh

        I was talking about working with my fellow constituents to get a real conversation going in the congress and senate to have him removed from the office via the 25th amendment. I’m pretty sure that using our state department to have Vlad Putin’s enemies assassinated indicates that 2scoops is entirely unfit for office. That and attempting to start WW3. So, not really sure what YOU were talking about. We have plenty of entirely legislated options here.

    • Lady4real

      There have been many others run over it seems. I also read somewhere where someone tied up in this was killed on 6th Ave in NY. Creepy stuff.

  • Ducksworthy

    Another promise to Putin fulfilled. When do we deport Fethullah Gulen? Or is Flynn going to have to return the money to Turkey.

    • Three Finger Salute

      I guess Trump won’t be pardoning a Turk this Thanksgiving.

    Excerpt:
    “The Department of Homeland Security should expedite an immediate review of the decision to revoke Mr. Browder’s visa,” Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Ben Cardin (D-Md.) said in a statement on Monday.

    The senators said it “would be unfortunate if the U.S. decided to bar him based on a decision by those same Russian officials who have been targeted by this important legislation.”

  • An Outhouse for the résistance

    According to Russian trolls, Browder stole all that money from Russia, not the oligarchs. Now we find out Browder also killed Magnitsky in a Russian prison, demonstrating the quantum effect of ‘action at a distance’, like a common Hillary Clinton.

    The GOP must have been taking projection lessons from the Russians.

    • WotsAllThisThen

      Trey Gowdy to investigate Browder meddling in our elections in 3… 2… 1…

    • Keith Taylor

      The indications just keep mounting (or drip … drip … dripping …) that Trump and sons, and Tillerson, Old Uncle Tom Cobleigh and all, are right there in Putin’s pocket, rattling around with the loose change.
      But the e-mails, of course. And Benghazi. And Hillary Clinton was the real Russian collaborator right from the beginning. And we’re in the Twilight Zone.

  • SadDemInTex

    Bowder is not exactly a model citizen. He had his American citizenship revoked so as to no longer pay income tax or have his finances looked into by the IRS. (As a .01% he probably never paid any tax anyway). He was dealing deals with oligarchs in Russia and he (and his Russian buddies) got in Putin’s way. He (still thinking that he was dealing with a rule of law country..hahaha) tried to go through the Russian legal system to get his money/business back. The one good thing he has done is bring to light the oligarchs pillaging of Russia and any other country they can. And that was inadvertent in a way and mostly to keep his own hide alive. I do not think he is a patriot…but at least he is a snitch…and we need more of those right now.

    • Phried Ω

      Joe Valachi was no saint but support a turncoat against evil when you can.

    • Kooolest G

      isn’t he a citizen of the UK? that seems like an odd place to go if you’re mad about paying too much in taxes.

      • SadDemInTex

        The USA is one of two countries in the world that make you pay income tax on your world wide income. If Bowder is making his income in another country he is likely not paying as much income tax as you would suspect. He def did it to escape tax issues

        • pstokk

          More accurately, the US is one of two that make you as a citizen pay income tax (or at least file a return) even if you are legally resident in another country and paying tax there.
          Pretty much all countries tax all your income worldwide if you are resident and file in their jurisdiction.

          • sarafina

            So how can Apple and other businesses keep all that money out of the U.S. and not pay taxes on it?

          • FeloniousMonk

            By giving up their American citizenship, same as Bowder did. They call it “inversion” – American company merges with a foreign shell but the shell is the survivor by merger. Voila, Apple is now Irish! True story.

  • Lurkylu

    maybe Browder can hide with the dossier guy. or Salman Rushdie.

  • AJ Milne

    If anyone needs to be picked up on a red notice, it’s Putin, Tillerson, and Trump.

  • Rags

    Dum question.

    If this guy was borned in the USA, isn’t he a citizen?

    Google, google….

    He renounced his USA citizenship in 1989.

    • Shibusa

      He probably did it to get out of paying US taxes. (But even after you renounce you have to pay for the next 10 years!)

    • Lady4real

      That’s what I thought as well. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

  • Boojum

    Tillerson shouldn’t stop there. He should rectify all the boners.

    • Jesse

      Rectify… Boners.

  • AJ Milne

    Probably already said somewhere, but:

    Damn, but this raises questions for me. The sheer blatancy of revoking Browder’s visa on its own would… _Then_ add the timing, like rancid icing on a rotting cake…

    Leverage. Putin has leverage. He _owns_ someone–or several someones–but good.

      Pee tape.

        A night of urine-soaked debauchery is the least of it.

        Trump colluded with our enemy to steal the election. This is firing-squad level treason.

          I thought the punishment for treason is hanging by the neck until dead. Need a thick rope.

            For a run time, read up on what the hangman did who handled the hangings after the Nuremberg trials.

          Yup – normally I am vehemently anti-capital punishment, but you know what? I’ll make an exception for this.
          Line them all up against the wall and offer first dibs on the ‘voting’ squad to the squad-mates of Sgt Johnson and the other men who died for Drumpf’s incompetency.

      • Shibusa

        Trump’s cult followers wouldn’t care if they saw hookers peeing on Trump himself, while Trump was beating a beagle puppy to death with a 7-iron and force feeding polonium-210 to orphans. They don’t care.

        • Lady4real

          They (the alt-right) were chanting that Russia is their friend a week ago. It didn’t get much traction in the news cycle bc DT started obfuscating his Benghazi.

        • amrak63

          You’re right, they wouldn’t care.

          But even they might care about Trump raping an underage Russian Ivanka look-alike, which is what I suspect the “pee tape” REALLY shows.

    • Lady4real

      He owns the entire GOP. No quarter from the Kremlin coming out of that non-functionary body.

  • Lucas Foxx

    crap.crap.crap.crap.crap.Putin’s America scares me a lot. Don Putin will never face justice.

  • Petunia Cat

    Do UK citizens normally need a visa to come to the United States? 🤔

    • Mike

      They have this thing called ESTA that kinda lets you automatically enter and stay for 90 days…apparently it can be revoked on an individual basis.

  • Jenny

    What a mess. Part of me is like fuck this rich guy who renounced citizenship over money. On the other hand fuck Trump. Underground railroad style protection for Browder and other enemies of Putin

    • Lady4real

      Did he renounce his US citizenship for a Russian citizenship? If so, that’s unfortunate. Did he really think he would free market and all that as a Russian citizen and then go and come as he pleases from the Kremlin? Just WOW! DT would not protect such a person if Putin wanted his head on a pike. This is confounding and Browder was stupid.

      • Shibusa

        He’s British. (Worth reading his book, Red Notice, btw. It starts off a bit slowly, and the writing is just so-so, but the story is just so bizarre.)

        • Lady4real

          They are reportedly terrified of the Kremlin over there. God help us. DT is terrified of the Kremlin too and lets them have a back channel through his cloned cell. Some of those tweets are not from DT. He just responds and doubles down when the puppet master issues them.

          • phoenix00

            Remember Alexander Litvinenko? He was killed while under asylum in the UK.

  • Last Hussar

    The way I read it is a person on one of these diffusion notices turns up one police and customs databases world wide, and ordinary coppers don’t know why, they just see the “wanted” marker. What is the important thing here is if the US then intervenes in this automatic process.

  • Toledo Window Box

    Why? Because Putin commanded Dotard to do it, so we did it.

    Donald Trump is trying to get this man killed, on orders from Vladimir Putin.

    PLEASE HURRY, Mr. Mueller.

  • Lucas Foxx

    Other than restricting Browder’s travel, this diffusion could be the kind of thing that might be discreetly (possibly regularly) ignored by European nations reasonably afraid of Putin/Trump. “The diffusions, which are automatically circulated to all 192 members, often stay in national police databases even if Interpol later deletes them from its central system.”

  • Shibusa

    Don’t forget that Rexxon was awarded awarded Russia’s Order of Friendship. It’s not all Trump here.

  • SnowBomber

    (apropos of nothing) Seeing this story pop up on the news all day has me wondering what’s going on with the Farscape movie.

    I’m changing daily headache meds, coming off one, going on another, so I feel loopy as heck.

      Have you tried Magnesium supplements?
      It worked for my Migraines.

      • SnowBomber

        Yeah, I’m taking 400 mg. (I think?) a day. I’m having an occipital nerve ablation in a few weeks and I cannot wait. I had one last year and it cut my migraines in half. It’s an amazing thing.

  • Zyxomma

    Every day, I get more pissed (ha!) at Putin’s Putos. Trump, Tillerson, Rohrabacher, Ryan, Priebus, AOT,K.

  • azeyote

    so it’s this guys fault for Jr. Jared, and the inept gangs meeting with the ruskies to get the dirt on hilz. score a couple of white babies as a cover for making putin rich and trump president – so much for good intentions

    He’s allowed in now. The State Dept. has reversed their decision.

  • Old Man Yells at Cloud

    Because Putin told his C* holster to tell his C* holster to do it.

    Maybe the State Department just did a boner by revoking Browder’s visa. (“Boner” is an old-timey word for “mistake.”)

    Wonder what Mc Cain has to say about this. Wasn’t it he that Browder lobbied for that bill?

    • Tamara Baker

      McCain’s pissed. In fact, he and Ben Cardin raised holy hell Monday morning – and a few hours later the visa was approved.

  • Bangkok Taxi

    http://www.newsweek.com/exclusive-browder-speaks-travel-ban-690811

    Apparently Newsweek has updated this story and states that a Browders visa was approved on Monday

    • Tamara Baker

      Only after John McCain and Ben Cardin raised a stink.

  • JayGoldenBeach

    Browder is hella shady.
