Mueller Investigators Detain Bolshoi Ballerinas

A Saul Alinsky Rule #5 Post:

(November 5, 2018, New York City) On the heels of the arrest of White House chef, Dmitir Volkogonov, believed to be a former member of the Russian Committee for State Security (AKA: KGB), several dancers in the Bolshoi Ballet company, based at the Bolshoi Threatre in Moscow, were detained today at LaGuardia Airport by law enforcement authorities.

The dancers were preparing to return to Moscow after several performances in New York City. Their final performance had been attended by several members of the Trump family, not including the President.

Previously, Volkogonov, the White House chef, was arrested on Sunday, November 4, as he was about to enter the Washington D.C. Embassy of the Russian Federation with what is alleged, by a White House staffer, to have been a pot of beef stroganoff presented to the Russian Embassador for the embassy staff’s November 7 annual celebration of Leon Trotsky’s birthday (b. Nov 7, 1879).

Volkogonov was carrying what he claimed to the product of his special beef stroganoff recipe. The recipe, accompanying the pot, is suspected by Mueller investigators to be a coded document representing clandestine communication between the Trump White House and the Russian Embassy. The recipe’s credibility is being tested by the C.I.A. (Culinary Institute of America).

Bolshoi Ballet (Sarcasm)On Monday, Nobember 5, the day before the 2018 mid-term elections, several members of the Bolshoi Ballet were prevented from boarding their chartered Russian Aeroflot airplane scheduled to return to Moscow. The detained dancers were permitted to wave goodbye to their colleagues before being taken to Rikers Island where they will be interrogated by F.B.I. Agents assigned to the Mueller Investigation.

Unidentified sources within the investigation report that the ballerinas are suspected of having worked in a phone bank – installed in a room in their hotel basement – when not performing on-stage, making phone calls to Russian-speaking voters in the 10th Congressional District of New York.

The 10th District is served by Congressman Jerry Nadler, ranking minority member of the House of Repsentatives Judiciary Committee.

The ballerians reportedly made disparing comments about Nadler in their calls. The substance of those comments has not been released by a Mueller spokesperson, nor by anyone in Hadler’s office.Colonel General Dmitri Antonovich Volkogonov


Postscript: Colonel General Dmitri Antonovich Volkogonov (1928-1995) commanded the Soviet Union’s military psychological warfare department. After the USSR collasped, he gained access to the most secret USSR archives and wrote biographies of Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin and other Soviet leaders. He renounced communism and the Soviet political system in the decade before he died. Late in life, he realized he had spend much of his life promoting a deeply flawed ideology

Trumped Up: How Criminalization of Political Differences Endangers Democracy (Kindle Edition)

“There are great legal minds; there are those who can also communicate well on television; then there is Dershowitz. The professor is uniquely capable of arguing a position, while putting a premium on legal and ethical legitimacy, not its popularity. Bravo, Dershowitz!” – Chris Cuomo, anchor and reporter, CNN

“This collection shows Alan Dershowitz at his best—passionate, fearless, and occasionally very wrong.” – Jeffrey Toobin, bestselling author of The Nine, Too Close to Call, A Vast Conspiracy, and The Run of His Life.

“Alan Dershowitz doesn’t twist the constitution to fit an agenda. He tells you what it REALLY means. That’s why he has always been my go-to guy on the law and the Constitution.” – Greta Van Susteren, former anchor at CNN, Fox News Channel, and MSNBC

“This book will reinforce Alan Dershowitz’s well-earned reputation as a brilliant legal analyst who, although often swimming against the established current, is usually right. Dershowitz substitutes his trenchant legal analysis for the wishful thinking and self-aggrandizing moral superiority that is presented by many in the academy and media, as well as Trump’s political opponents. Dershowitz’s arguments should cause all rational citizens to take a deep breath and recognize, as Dershowitz demonstrates, that Trump may be many things, but, under current law and the known evidence, the President is not a criminal. His analysis seems flawless to me.” – Harvey A. Silverglate, Criminal and civil liberties lawyer, author of Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent

In our current age of hyper-partisan politics, nearly everyone takes sides. This is especially true with regard to the Trump presidency. It has become difficult to have a reasonable discussion about the most controversial president in our recent history. For Trump zealots, their president has not only committed no crimes, he has done nothing wrong. For anti-Trump zealots, nothing Trump has done—even in foreign policy—is good. Everything he has done is wrong, and since it is wrong, it must necessarily be criminal. This deeply undemocratic fallacy—that political sins must be investigated and prosecuted as criminal—is an exceedingly dangerous trend.

Hardening positions on both sides has been manifested by increasing demands to criminalize political differences. Both sides scream “lock ‘em up” instead of making substantive criticisms of opposing views.

The real fear, as Alan Dershowitz argues, in this compelling collection, is that we have weakened our national commitment to civil liberties as the Left becomes ever more intolerant and the Right slips into authoritarian rhetoric. The vibrant center is weakening, with traditional liberalism and conservatism becoming further apart, not just in approach, but in their respect for Constitutional norms that have served us well for more than two centuries.

While Donald Trump is not the only cause of this profound division, his election drew it to the surface and made it the dominant paradigm of political debate. Unless we as a nation begin to focus again on what unites us rather than on what divides us, America might not survive the next decade.
