Time for a DEEP DIVE THREAD...which I'm posing as a legitimate question to @michaeldweiss : who was behind Herzen, Michael? Was it Nina?

Although Michael Weiss understand both of my questions, YOU out there on Twitter have NO idea what I'm talking about..

So follow along…
Who is Michael Weiss aka @michaeldweiss?

He's one of the most important and influential media figures out there.

Not just because he's an editor at @thedailybeast or an analyst at @CNN or a writer for @ForeignPolicy.

Michael Weiss wants to control what YOU see on Facebook.
Michael Weiss is also a fellow at the @AtlanticCouncil.

And although Michael isn't on the org chart of the @AtlanticCouncil as part of the Digital Forensics Lab (headed by Obama NSC member @GrahamBrookie) that will be "helping" @facebook censor the news you see...

The whole idea of filtering news like this was really Michael Weiss's idea, as laid out in a book he co-wrote way back in 2014: Menace of Unreality:
How the Kremlin Weaponizes Information, Culture and Money.

Now, if you take a look at that link that I just posted of Michael’s book where he laid out the plan for filtering news, you’ll note that it is published by The Interpreter.

You’ll see that is a “project of the Institute for Modern Russia.”

Who runs that Institute?
The Institute of Modern Russia Is a New York-based 501(c)(3) that was started in 2010@ans is run by the son of Infamous, now exiled 1990s Russian oligarch - Mikhail Khodorkovsky.

Michael Weiss did work with them for years.

Someone asked what Weiss’s proposals were in 2014 and you can see that they have been implemented now at Facebook, such as “counter-disinformation editors.”
More on that report and the organizations behind it in a minute…

If you aren't familiar with the name Michael Weiss, you're familiar with his work and his friends.

For example, remember when @SenJohnMcCain went into Syria to meet with the "rebels?"

You've seen this picture.
That's Michael's friend @SoccerMouaz. I've talked about his role in promoting false info about Syria before, a lot.

That photo of Michael also shows @AndreaChalupa -- the sister of DNC Operative Alexandra Chalupa, who I've discussed before as well.
If you want to read more about who Alexandra Chalupa is and her central role in the DNC / Ukraine election interference and collusion, read this article from January, 2017.

It's one of the biggest coverups happening now.

Back to my question for Michael Weiss aka @michaeldweiss that started this thread.

Who funds Herzen? And..is it Nina?

First, Herzen is the Herzen Foundation.

According to the Institute of Modern Russia, Weiss's The Interpreter project with stared with funding from Herzen.
"The Interpreter (interpretermag.com) was launched on May 1, 2013, by IMR and the Herzen Foundation."

This is important to YOU, in part, because eventually your tax dollars went to fund The Interpreter and Weiss.

In 2016, it became part of Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty, for a year.

Here's what Michael Weiss said at the The Interpretaer's launch in 2013...

You'll notice he brings up The Magnitsky Act, which gives you some idea of how far back the real story of #Russiagate goes - created by Weiss, Browder, Khodorkovsky, Soros, et al.

By the way, I'm not at all throwing Soros in there randomly.

Mikhail Khodorkovsky also started the Open Russia Club -- a tip of the hate of Soros' Open Society Foundation.

And Soros was a guest.

And this makes sense. Soros and Browder also go way back.

Khodorkovsky, Soros and Browder all have a reason to want Putin out of the way -- the billions of dollars they've made.

So they spends millions on a media blitz against Putin.
But back to the mystery of the Herzen Foundation -- the London based group that provided "seed money" to start the Interpreter.

Who are they, Michael?

Their website is gone but bringing up the archive version...doesn't show much.

Very little info.

A lot of searching -- can't find any reference to anyone who worked for them, ever.

There WAS a Herzen Foundation in 70s but it ended in 1998. And wasn't in London.

This one...like a ghost.

Or a shell foundation, hiding the tracks of whoever funded.
This London based Herzen Foundation....

It says it's part of The Charities Aid Foundation -- but that doesn't really help, because The Charities Aid Foundation is like an umbrella organization and bank for a bunch of charities.

So -- who funded Herzen?

So, @michaeldweiss -- I'm just flat out asking.

Who was Herzen Foundation?

Was it Nina?

(Let me explain who Nina is in a minute.)

Here's why I think it MIGHT be Nina -- because The Charities Aid Foundation has a US arm: CFA America.

And it seems that CFA America was used by Nina Rosenwald as a way to fund something called the American Friends of the Henry Jackson Society.

That's from this report on the Henry Jackson Society, the London based neocon think-tank: thecordobafoundation.com/attach/spinwat…

And Michael...
Well, Michael was with the Henry Jackson Society in London for a few years...from 2010 to 2012, right Michael?

Just before The Interpreter started in 2013...

So did Nina Rosenwald fund Herzen, @michaeldweiss ?

Nina Rosenwald is a major funder on the Right, by the way -- supporting neocons like John Bolton....

And part of the Zionist Organization of America.

Her connections to the right MAY be why she didn't want her name on Interpreter funding.

But I don't KNOW that she's Herzen.

Let's have a short Brett Kimberlin Film Festival, Shall We? (THREAD)

This directly connects to @POTUS and the #RealRussiagate because Kimberlin worked directly with DNC operative Alexandra Chalupa to try and keep @POTUS from taking office.
Here's the story that outlines the Chalupa / Kimberlin connection in the 2016 election....

But who is Brett Kimberlin?

Here's a video I made years ago about Brett's past as a convicted serial bomber.

Here's the text of the @Billbrowder promoted Magnitsky Act.

This was the subject of the infamous Trump Tower meeting, which almost ZERO reporters get right.

Let me show you what they miss.

It all connects to #UkraineDNC the #RealRussiagate.

This is from @BillBrowder's book Red Notice.

This is how the book describes meeting with Jonathan Winer.

The Magnitsky Act was essentially Winer's idea.

He's a longtime associate of Kerry.

Exec at APCO Worldwide.

State Department.

He's known Chris Steele nearly 20 years.
One of Winer's clients at APCO Worldwide is a 1990s Russian oligarch now living in exile : Mikhail Khodorkovsky.

Once, he was the richest man in Russia after acquiring Yukos oil.

Then he tried to bribe the Duma, and Putin jailed him then pardoned him 10 years later.

Dear @Potus - meet @TelizhenkoAndr, a brave whistleblower who refused to go along with election collusion by the @dnc and the government of Ukraine when told to give “dirt” on you to Clinton operative @AlexandraChalup.

You must hear this man’a story to end the Witch Hunt.
This well-reported story came to in @POLITCO in January, 2017 and detailed the #UkraineDNC collusion.

It shows that the Democrats were trying to frame and smear Donald Trump via Paul Manafort, BEFORE the supposed "Russian hack"or Trump Tower meeting.

After following the story for over a year, I interviewed @TelizhenkoAndr, the loyal Ukrainian, former member of the government, diplomat & whistleblower .

I talked to him this past Tuesday and have released some of what he told me, @POTUS.

He stands by the story.

Can the Democratic hysteria over Russiagate And the subsequent Witch Hunt be traced to one democratic operative?

Quick THREAD on Alexandra Chalupa’s Manafort obsession.
Let’s look at the timeline.

our first reference will be this must read article from @politico about #UkraineDNC

Note that it says Chalupa started talking to the DNC about Paul Manafort in January 2016.

THREAD on The Enemy Within (UK Edition)

I'm going to show you the FACTS on the UK think tank that is the center of a LOT of anti-@realDonaldTrump activity including connections to the Steele dossier & @Billbrowder.

Time to make you smarter about the Henry Jackson Society.
This shows how the left / right paradigm doesn't reveal about the anti-@POTUS movement,

Let's start with this Guardian article from 2005, when the Henry Jackson society first opened its doors in London.

I'm going to point out that it's NeoCon think tank and one of the lead never-trumpets, Bill Kristol is a patron and so is James Woolsey, ex-CIA and one of the people on board of Genie Energy that I've discussed before.

Also -- note Richard Dearlove.
