Running for Congress? Short on cash or donations? No need to worry. Now, you too can finance your entire campaign through Ukrainian arms dealers. Igor, for example, will host the fundraising events in his $2+ million Washington DC brownstone (just one of several such houses he owns in the US). He will even throw in the Ukrainian Hors d’Oeuvres, Vodka, and Cigars.
And the best part is that you never have to worry about paying him back for any of these favors, because it’s all absolutely free, no strings attached. After all, everyone knows that Ukrainian arms dealers float the election campaign of congressional candidates like Adam Schiff, and Loretta Sanchez and socially and politically hub nob with Nancy Pelosi because they are just so cuddly and lovable.
If you don’t buy any of this, then the following Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, and Alexandra Chalupa linkage agrees with you.

Identifying Pasternak as Ukrainian and as an arms dealer is based on multiple sources including official ATF documents and press interviews with Pasternak. For example, an article titled ‘New Ukrainian M4-WAC47 rifle ‘a strong political message to Russia’ written by Illia Ponomarenko, published January 28, 2018 (using Pasternak as the source) states:
“UkrOboronProm’s (One of Ukraine’s largest arms producers)…signing a memorandum of cooperation with the Aeroscraft (Pasternak’s company), a major aviation and weapons producer founded and directed by Ukrainian immigrant Igor Pasternak.”
In another publication, on July 8, 2016, the KievPost reported:
“Pasternak found himself walking on Kyiv’s central square, Maidan Nezalezhnosti, where the central protest camp was based. “(At that moment) I understood that I am a Ukrainian,” Pasternak said during an interview on Ukrainian television’s Espreso TV shown on April 2015. Before seeing the EuroMaidan protests, he identified as an American. Pasternak then started to visit Ukraine every month or two. In January, he signed a contract for Aeros to supply Ukraine’s State Border Service with a surveillance system to monitor the Sea of Azov.”

Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes – Who will Fact Check the Fact Checkers?
Shortly after uploading this post, I was contact by Saranac Spencer Hale, an an investigative reporter with Factcheck.org. Saranac asked me via email to verify that the images in the post were authentic. She also inquired about the face recognition and AI based analytics and wanted to know how the technology worked. I provided her with the details and even demonstrated the Sentinel AI capabilities by running it against one node of her social network (using her email address as the entry point).
After providing her this information, she never responded to my emails or gave me an opportunity to comment about what she was going to publish. Several days ago, she posted a misleading report that falsely claims that I’ve misidentified Randy Credico as Igor Pasternak (the man Nancy Pelosi is shanking hands with in the middle of Image 15).
The fact is that Credico wasn’t event tagged or identified because he was irrelevant to the linkage. The main reason why this image was used is because it contained several of Pelosi’s characteristics that the AI classifier used to verify her identity. These included her face recognition, hair parting style, body features such as hand geometry and some age spots (on her right hand), and the ‘tight lips’ facial expression.
It is clear from the content of Saranac Spencer Hale’s misleading post and its deliberate mischaracterization of the facts that it was a designed to attack the Ukrainian linkage between Igor Pasternak, Adam Schiff, and Nancy Pelosi, and down play Pasternak role as an ‘arms dealer’. This MO fits well into the genre of internet facts checkers who in reality are little more than progressive political damage control tools and information warfare units that whitewash inconvenient facts.
For the sake of transparency and to allow others who may want to get a first hand view into how the Internet fact checking industry works, I am posting the email thread with Saranac Spencer Hale below:
