October Surprise?

I have no idea if this is a hoax or not, but there are reports that the former CEO of the Clinton Foundation has requested political asylum at the Russian Consulate in New York City:
Eric Braverman, yesterday (23 October), arrived at the Consulate of Russia in New York City and presented his “urgent and immediate” request for asylum on a visa application—as is “protocol/custom” because the Federation does not accept mail or electronic visa applications from residents of the continental United States.
Crazy... and if true, damning.

I don't think the part about not accepting mail or electronic visa apps from residents of the continental US is true.

@4 The comments on that Zerohedge article are interesting. Here is a comment from last night. It's from a dude with the same avatar but different names. Here is what he posted under "miramar fox".:

"As my daughter says; omg, omg, omg Sorcha Faal says Braverman has asked for political asylum with those awful Russians; the plot thickens?"

Same avatar but a different name, "fwupow". He/ she posts the following on the morning of 10/23, the day after his post about Braverman seeking asylum:

"This just in. Eric Braveman was found dead in the trunk of his own car. According to FBI director James Comey. He accidentally fell out of his car and ran himself over. He subsequently shot himself in the back of the head twice and then locked himself in the trunk of his own car."

So far as I know, the Russians now only accept visa applications in person. So that much at least isn't necessarily indicative of the story being "off."

Still, the story has the smell of one of those fake news sites. You know, Bigfoot seen marrying Elvis at Trump Tower, or whatever. Could be real, I suppose, but I'll wait to see confirmation somewhere that doesn't have a 404 error page as its homepage, with the address /home_trashed.

"Hillary Clinton’s “Sudden Move” Of $1.8 Billion To Qatar Central Bank Stuns Financial World ..."
https://theinternationalreporter.org/2016/10/17/hillary-clintons-sudden-move-of-1-8-billion-to-qatar-central-bank-stuns-financial-world/

"The country of Qatar happens to be one of a handful of countries that does not have an extradition treaty with the United States, thus would be a perfect place for her to run to in escaping justice.
...
Apparently, Hillary is not the only person in Washington who has made plans to escape justice under a Trump Administration. John Kerry has quietly been selling his property in the US for millions of dollars of late, with an announcement of the sale of his $25 million dollar Nantucket mansion in June 2016, as well as the sale of his yacht for $3.9 million in July 2016.

President Barack H Obama has also apparently been making exit plans with his purchase of a $4.9 million dollar seaside mansion in Dubai in January 2016, another non extradition country. "

So yes, Russia and the Empire are already at war, a war for survival from which only one side will walk away while the other will be eliminated, at least in its current political form. This war is a new type of war, however, one which is roughly 80% informational, 15% economic and 5% military.

There is another possibility. Perhaps Braverman didn't claim asylum from the Russians because he's already dead from an accidental weightlifting suicide.

Anonymous Slowpoke October 25, 2016 2:47 PM  

He didn't claim asylum, and if he did he wouldn't recieved it. The reason is simple, his husband Neil Brown wouldn't like it, and the Russians wouldn't like him bringing his husband.

Blogger Basil Makedon October 25, 2016 2:49 PM  

He probably didn't claim asylum; however, I suspect that Putin would grant it to him, regardless of his proclivities. WWIII v. One gay guy's special friend = easy choice.

Blogger Aeoli Pera October 25, 2016 4:25 PM  

Thoughts:

Why Russia? Maybe he has contacts/family there, or maybe this is his best chance at rushed processing. Maybe he wants to emulate Snowden.

Why this process? Maybe he has an understanding with someone in admin, or maybe he's panicking.

Why flee? I figure the existential threat would come from the Dem side, not Trump. He could cut a deal with Trump. I hear Trump makes deals, he's a dealmaker.

"""
The Foreign Intelligence Service (FSI) “highly classified” Braverman’s visa application requesting political asylum, this SC report says, but stunningly admits that his wanting the protection of the Federation was “directly related” to the sudden death of Wikileaks founder Gavin MacFadyen that occurred the previous day, 22 October.
"""

Okay, that's plausible. Nobody wants to get thrown under the bus for conspiracy to commit international murders.

"""
Chelsea Clinton battled to clean up the Clinton Foundation—and forced upon it the new CEO Eric Braverman.

By December, 2015, this report notes, Clinton Foundation CEO Braverman’s efforts to “establish normalcy” within this criminal enterprise completely failed leading to what many believe was his ouster as his contract ran to 2017—and a shocking campaign of hatred against Chelsea Clinton too as evidenced by a Wikileaks released secret email showing top Hillary and Bill Clinton operatives saying about her “she is acting like a spoiled brat kid who has nothing else to do but create issues to justify what she’s doing because she, as she has said, hasn’t found her way and has a lack of focus in her life”.
"""

Also plausible.

Leaning 30/70 against this one being true, although it's more plausible than I expected at first. It has the bizarre taste of reality in some of the details but not in the overall narrative, so I think someone is reading the situation wrong.

I'm a partial Russian speaker, so here's my crack at it. Some of it's a bit tough. I've tried to preserve some of the interesting Russian imagery without making it incomprehensible (and in some spots, I'm not quite sure of the translation), but here's my best effort:
---------------------------
The magpie [i.e. chatterer] risks losing her tail. [Reference to folktale or saying, I believe]

But, she took the risk. We tell her “thank you” and wish her safe hiding.

The “fattening” [increase] of information recently has very man-made roots. The noise cannot be absorbed and only adds up in layers here and there. There is a clear overdose. People feel they don’t want to retell fifty [of these revelations], and the pseudonews-trained organism rejects them. The target audience has had enough and goes on a break from [learning about] new [information]. It’s plain there’s already a lot. Well, there’s also the magpie.

Eric Braverman, yesterday (October 23), arrived at the Russian Consulate in New - York and presented his "urgent and immediate" request for asylum.

It’s all or nothing! In 2013 he became general director of the Clinton Foundation, until he suddenly and inexplicably left [“flew out of there”], leaving this known criminal, money-laundering organization just before the nomination of the old lady as a candidate for U.S. President in December of last year. They say that he even ran to the consulate when he learned of the sudden death of Assange’s partner.

This unconfirmed but persuasive data suggests that the Clintons’ daughter Chelsea invited him there, after declaring war on her dad and mom because she learned that they have obtained $1 billion for restoring 100 villages in India, and, after spending $53 million, pocketed the rest. But this, of course, is merely hearsay, which is supported only by a pair of emails found in a packet of materials studied recently by the Russian Federation’s FSB.

This is, of course, a lot of money – a billion – but Mama Clinton isn’t squeamish about trifling sums. [This next bit gives me a lot of trouble] One day she made a deal with the King of Morocco for 12 “lemons” [lemon = Russian slang for a sum of money, I don’t know how much – millions?], but then Roman Abramovich began trading plastic toys (with a half-century anniversary! Wow, Mitya is older, but stupid), and now everyone wants to be in on it.

In this context, the unexpected interview of Mr. Ivanov with the Clinton propaganda megaphone [?] looks interesting. The “fire under the carpet” is so powerful that the only choice now is to endure it. Those whose asses are only slightly burnt, can endure it. No ... Putin does not participate in the struggle between the Big-Endians and the Little-Endians [see Gulliver’s Travels]; he is the egg, but a talking egg, just a kind of modern Faberge egg. And this steel Faberge egg lets everyone understand: if the Old Lady becomes the president (elected), he can sink her in a pile of her own shit. The fight for Obama’s third term, and Merkel and Putin’s fourth terms, is at its height.

BGKB said, "Bill Clinton is seeking asylum at the Russian Embassy to keep his wife from killing him."

That is what worries me most. Bill isn't dead. I take that to mean Hillary is confident she has this in the bag. Otherwise Bill would be having a heart attack about now, probably on live TV for maximum impact. Imagine it, a heart attack, dramatic tension for a day or two and then the buildup to a full State Funeral. All campaigning would stop, even political ads would be dropped from the live wall to wall coverage. Would probably blank out everything until Election Day. And all the coverage would be about how wonderful Bill was, no talk about his 'issues' allowed, can't speak ill of the dead. And bonus: she wouldn't be embarrassed as he wandered the WH with his pants around his knees for four years.

But he is still alive. Like I said, that worries me.
