President Trump, and not obliquely, has put the assassination of Vladimir Putin “on the table” as part of a new policy, one at direct odds with both American and international law.  This isn’t just a broad policy against those Washington deems enemies, but Russia was specifically listed as a target for highest level assassinations in order to achieve regime change.

  • The Scaife Family Foundation, long run by now deceased Richard Mellon Scaife, a right-wing extremist billionaire who employed an army of private security operatives used to threaten members of the press, including involvement in the death of Steve Kangas, founder of America’s independent press.
  • The Castle Rock Foundation, a front for Adolf Coors, one of the largest funders of right-wing extremism and Russophobia in the United States
  • The Koch Foundation, largest funder for climate denialism through profits from the coal industry
