Just How Innocent Is Bill Browder?

Earlier today, I wrote a piece about the news that anti-Putin activist and Trump nemesis, #BillBrowder, was being denied entry into the US. The problem was, I had to mess about with my referencing links. I’d come face-to-face with the issues now inherent with a free internet, alternative web-sites and fake news.

The now-standard line on Bill Browder, for those of you paying attention, is that he is the missing link in the potential Impeachment of Donald Trump. But all is now propaganda, psyops, political spin, alternative facts, fake news, and double-take. If you have an agenda you want to run as news, you can find a way to do it. So whom do you believe?

The prevailing ‘conventional wisdom’ has Bill Browder as crusading victim. But there is an opposing story being peddled that he got his hands caught in the till. And has been using his considerable charms, funds and PR experience very successfully to market his different yarn.

Pretty much all I can do is present some of the other articles I’ve come across, and let you make up your own minds. But bear this in mind. We all need to be more cautious about the information we immediately accept online. Research the source. Compare. Use your own intelligence. And think about it. Before you present it to others as gospel.

And so …

But why, I hear you ask, do I even bother with these esoteric sources? Because we live in an age of corporatized mainstream media. Where almost all media has bias and agenda (be it right-wing or left-wing). Where ‘good’ information is fed to whacko sources by folks who want deliberately to discredit that information (a favorite psyops device of intelligence agencies). And where even responsible investigators are forced to use ‘alternative’ sites, due to the agendas and biases of more mainstream outlets. Er. I can attest to that.

So. We have to look a bit further, a bit wider, a bit deeper than we used to. And we have to accept all information that we read with a pinch of salt, until we have managed to effect at least some due diligence. So. Do yours …
