FAKEBOOK RUSSIAN ADS PLAYED LEFT + RIGHT TO DIVIDE + CONQUER
Your fakebook feed may contain active measures. The Washington Post reports, “The batch of more than 3,000 Russian-bought ads that Facebook is preparing to turn over to Congress shows a deep understanding of social divides in American society, with some ads promoting African American rights groups, including Black Lives Matter, and others suggesting that these same groups pose a rising political threat”. Surprise! Wait until we get to the Women’s March. Recall the purpose of active measures is to divide and conquer and stage one involves a stream of racist, hateful propaganda. This is what the Soviets did after the Second World War in Eastern Europe and during the Cold War in the U.S. and so it is what the Russians did in the last year to our beautiful America. The Washington Post notes how the “influence campaign” was “slickly crafted to mimic and infiltrate U.S. political discourse while also seeking to heighten tensions between groups already wary of one another.” Divide and conquer, folks. The Washington Post reports, “The previously undisclosed ads suggest that the operatives worked off evolving lists of racial, religious, political and economic themes. They used these to create pages, write posts and craft ads that would appear in users’ news feeds — with the apparent goal of appealing to one audience and alienating another. In some cases, the pages even advertised events.”

BUT HER EMAILS! IVANKA’S TURN + NO ONE CAN SAY SHE DIDN’T KNOW
The Hill reports, “Ivanka Trump used a personal email account to communicate with a member of President Trump’s administration”. Surprise! And after months of “lock her up!” chants, no one can say Aryan princess Ivanka did not know not to do this. The Hill reports an organization, “American Oversight obtained documents through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) that show Ivanka Trump, a senior White House adviser to her father, used a personal email account to contact Small Business Administration (SBA) Administrator Linda MacMahon in February.” The Hill notes, “The release follows news that her husband, Jared Kushner used a private email account to communicate with other administration officials about White House business.”

BUT NOT JUST ARYAN PRINCESS – 6 STAFFERS DID TOO!
The New York Times reports, “At least six of President Trump’s closest advisers occasionally used private email addresses to discuss White House matters”. In addition to princeling Jared and Aryan princess Ivanka, former staffers Stephen Bannon and Reince Priebus, who was Chief of Staff and ostensibly in charge of preventing such things from occurring, as well as Stephen Miller and Gary Cohn have all used private email to discuss the public’s business.

UN CALLS OUT RIGHTS ABUSES IN CRIMEA
Reuters reports, “Russia is committing ‘grave’ human rights violations in Crimea, including its imposition of citizenship and by deporting prisoners” in a new U.N. report, which states, “Grave human rights violations, such as arbitrary arrests and detentions, enforced disappearances, ill-treatment and torture, and at least one extra-judicial execution were documented”. The report, already disputed by Russia comes as, “Russian authorities did not allow the U.N. investigation to enter Crimean territory.” Reuters notes, “Fiona Frazer, head of the U.N. office in Ukraine that produced the report, said it was important to document what was happening in Crimea so that victims could record the human rights violations they were facing and try to ensure justice and accountability.”
ROGER STONE SHOW ARRIVES ON THE HILL
The Washington Post reports, “Former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone plans to fiercely deny to the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday that he had any contact, much less colluded, with Russian operatives during the 2016 presidential election, according to a prepared opening statement,” he gave to the Post. The Washington Post notes, “Stone also plans to deny that he had any advance knowledge that emails of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta would be hacked or that his emails would then be released by WikiLeaks — despite tweeting just days before that Podesta’s ‘time in the barrel’ would soon be coming.” According to The Washington Post, “Stone has already taken to Twitter to herald his appearance, giving interviews to Alex Jones’s Info Wars on Monday and tweeting a photo of himself ‘preparing’”. The Washington Post notes Stone “has also said that he plans to record the session himself, and release the recording to Info Wars immediately afterward.” Stone also referred to the House intelligence committee hearing as “The Romp in the Swamp”.

UDAY GETS HIS SECRET SERVICE DETAIL BACK, REPORT SAYS
CNN reports, “Donald Trump Jr.’s Secret Service protection has been reactivated”. According to CNN “It is not clear what prompted the move.” Recall, Uday had previously requested security be scaled back and presumably not for the good of the American taxpayers.
BEING LEN BLAVATNIK
Haaretz profiles, “A Soviet-born billionaire who is considered close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu” who also “donated to a private legal defense fund for U.S. President Donald Trump,” the latter bit coming from a Wall Street Journal report last Friday. So who is Len Blavatnik? According to Haaretz, “Blavatnik is a Ukrainain-born Jewish billionaire and friend of Netanyahu who is among the owners of Israel’s Channel 10 television and the Sport 5 channel through his RGE Group.” Citing the Wall Street Journal verbatim, Haaretz notes, “In 2013, Mr. Blavatnik earned billions when he, Mr. Vekselberg and two other partners sold their stake in the oil company TNK-BP to Rosneft, a Kremlin-controlled oil company”. Blavatnik’s name has surfaced a few times in relation to investigations into Netanyahu and he was called in “by Israeli police investigators to provide information in connection with their investigation of the prime minister in the case dubbed Case 2000. The case involves suspicions that Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper publisher Arnon Mozes and Netanyahu pursued an agreement through which Yedioth would have provided favorable coverage of the prime minister in exchange for steps that would have reduced the competition that paper faces from another daily, Israel Hayom,” according to Haaretz.
