"Let's Get Real About George Soros"It took me few hours on the internet one afternoon to get a fair idea of what George Soros is about. Interspersed with the hysterical accolades he gets for his amazing generosity for liberal and even leftist causes in the United States,the latest in a long line of conquests, I found a few articles that give a much darker picture. Now wait a minute...Carlyle Group? Rothschilds? CFR? Who IS this guy? What he is is your typical Cold Warrior spook. Under the guise of anti-Communism, a bunch of fascist super-capitalist spooks have been running around the globe making mischief since the end of World War II. It is my guess that Soros, an impoverished Jewish immigrant from Hungary, was recruited by...somebody. CIA? MI5? I'm not the only one who thinks probably. How did this itinerant laborer end up at the London School of Economics? He has had a hand in destabilizing governments and crushing economies from Brazil and Haiti and Peru to Russia and Georgia and Ukraine to Malaysia and Thailand. And he shows all the anti-democratic impulses of his ilk, cozying up to death-squad torturers in the name of averting the Communist Threat.
Now he is the darling of the Clintons, Dean (he gave him a pile of money), virtually the entire Western press, and even ostensibly 'leftist' organizations like MoveOn.Org. He says he wants to 'bring down Bush.' Highly doubtful. The evidence points to the fact that he did bring down the Republic of Georgia recently, and had a hand in Haiti...He has probably figured out that throwing money at liberals is pretty much the same as throwing it at conservatives, and you get better press. One hopes that American liberals are just ignorant rather than complicit, but George Soros' hijinks across the planet serve the purposes of capitalism and northern hegemony very well, and liberals and conservatives alike. O yeah, as the owner of Harken Energy, he made GW a pile of money back in the day...
I would say that a ten minute search on the internet is about all it would take to raise questions in any reasonable person's mind. Too bad us paranoid 'conspiracy theorists' are the only ones who bother...
This is a digest of my research.
*"Soros foundations and financial machinations are partly responsible for the destruction of socialism in Eastern Europe and the former USSR. He has set his sights on China. He was part of the full court press that dismantled Yugoslavia."
*"Calling himself a philanthropist, billionaire George Soros' role is to tighten the ideological stranglehold of globalization and the New World Order while promoting his own financial gain."
*"Soros is a leading figure on the Council of Foreign Relations, the World Economic Forum, and Human Rights Watch (HRW)."
*"A Soros foundation now runs CIA-created Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty jointly with the U.S. and RFE/RL, which has expanded into the Caucasus and Asia."
*"Soros works openly with the United States Institute of Peace-an overt arm of the CIA."
* "In 1997 he earned the rare distinction of being singled out as a villain by a head of state, Malaysia's Mahathir Mohamad, for taking part in a highly profitable attack on that nation's currency."
* "His companies control real estate in Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico; banking in Venezuela; and are some of the most profitable currency traders in the world, giving rise to the general belief that his highly placed friends assisted him in his financial endeavors"
*"George Soros has been blamed for the destruction of the Thai economy in 1997. One Thai activist said, "We regard George Soros as a kind of Dracula. He sucks the blood from the people." The Chinese call him "the crocodile," because his economic and ideological efforts in China were so insatiate, and because his financial speculation created millions of dollars in profits as it ravished the Thai and Malaysian economies."
*"It was Soros who saved George W. Bush's bacon when his management of an oil exploration company was ending in failure. Soros was the owner of Harken Energy Corporation, and it was he who bought the rapidly depreciating stocks just prior to the company's collapse. The future president cashed out at almost one million dollars. Soros said he did it to buy "political influence."
* "Soros is also a partner in the infamous Carlyle Group. Organized in 1987, "the world's largest private equity firm" with over twelve billion dollars under management, is run by "a veritable who's who of former Republican leaders," from CIA man Frank Carlucci to CIA head George Bush, Sr. The Carlyle Group makes most of its money from weapons expenditures."
*"Soros' Open Society organized conferences with anticommunist Czechs, Serbs, Romanians, Hungarians, Croatians, Bosnians, Kosovars. His ever-expanding influence gave rise to suspicions that he was operating as part of the U.S. intelligence complex. In 1989, the Washington Post reported charges first made in 1987 by the Chinese government officials that Soros' Fund for the Reform and Opening of China had CIA connections."
*"The Russian Federal Counterintelligence Service (FSK) accused Soros foundations in Russia of "espionage." They noted that Soros was not operating alone; he was part of a full court press that included financing from the Ford and Heritage Foundations; Harvard, Duke, and Columbia universities, and assistance from the Pentagon and U.S. intelligence services."
*"The FSK criticized Soros' payouts to 50,000 Russian scientists, saying that Soros advanced his own interests by gaining control of thousands of Russian scientific discoveries and new technologies to collect state and commercial secrets."
*"When Soros founded the Open Society Fund (now Institute) he picked liberal pundit Aryeh Neier to lead it. Neier was the head of Helsinki Watch, a putative human rights organization with an anticommunist bent."
*"Helsinki Watch became Human Rights Watch in 1975. Soros is currently on its Advisory Board, both for the Americas and the Eastern Europe-Central Asia Committees, and his Open Society Fund/Soros/OSI is listed as a funder."
* "In Haiti, Soros-funded activities have worked to defeat popular aspirations following the end of the Duvalier dictatorship by undermining Haiti's first democratically elected leader, Jean-Bertrand Aristide. HRW's Ken Roth helpfully chimed in with U.S. denunciations of Aristide as "undemocratic." To demonstrate his idea of "democracy," Soros foundations were commencing operations in Haiti complimentary to such unseemly U.S. activities as USAID's promotion of persons associated with FRAPH, the notorious CIA-sponsored death squads which have terrorized the country since the fall of 'Baby Doc' Duvalier."
*"Soros' Open Society Institute has a finger in every pot. Its board of directors reads like a "Who's Who" of Cold War and New World Order pundits. Paul Goble is Communications Director; 'he was the major political commentator at Radio Free Europe. Herbert Okun served in the Nixon State Department as an intelligence adviser to Henry Kissinger. Kati Marton is the wife of former Clinton administration UN ambassador and envoy to Yugoslavia, Richard Holbrooke. Marton lobbied for the Soros-funded radio station B-92, also a project of' the National Endowment for Democracy (another overt arm of the CIA), which was instrumental in bringing down the Yugoslav government."
*"One of Soros' most influential institutions is the International Crisis Group, founded in 1986. ICG is headed by individuals from the very center of political and corporate power. Its board includes Zbigniew Brzezinski, Morton Abramowitz, former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State; Wesley Clark, former NATO Supreme Allied Commander for Europe; and Richard Allen, former U.S. National Security Adviser, Allen is noteworthy for quitting Nixon's National Security Council out of disgust with the liberal tendencies of Henry Kissinger; recruiting Oliver North to Reagan's National Security Council, and negotiating missiles for hostages in the Iran-Contra scandal. For these individuals, "containing conflict" boils down to U.S. control over the people and resources of the world."
*"In the 1980s and 1990s, under the aegis of the Reagan Doctrine, U.S. covert and overt operations in Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Asia were in the works. Soros was openly active in most of these places, working to buy off would-be revolutionaries, or subsidize politicians, intellectuals and anyone else who might come to power when the revolutionary moment had passed."
*"Soros' assertion that "The United Nations is constitutionally incapable of fulfilling the promises contained in the preamble of its charter," reflects the thinking of such reactionary institutions as the American Enterprise Institute. Though many conservatives refer to the Soros network as left-wing, on the question of U.S. affiliation with the United Nations Soros is on the same page as the likes of John R. Bolton, Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Affairs, who, with "[M]any Republicans in Congress-believe that nothing more should be paid to the UN system." There has been a decades-long rightwing campaign against the UN. Now Soros is leading it. On various Soros web sites one may read criticism of the United Nations as too rich, unwilling to share information, or flawed in ways that make it unfit for the way the world should run according to George Soros."
*"Soros' criticism that the United Nations should not be a venue for "tin-pot dictators and totalitarians. . treated as equal partners." This kind of Eurocentric racism is at the heart of Soros' hubris. His assumption that the United States can and should run the world is a prescription for fascism on a global scale. For much too long, Western "progressives" have been giving Soros a pass."
*"But just listen closely to what Soros himself has to say: 'In old Rome, the Romans only voted. In the modern global capitalism, the Americans only vote. The Brazilians do not vote.'"
'Just imagine – a speculator on the world stock exchanges and critic of finance capital all in one bottle! It has gone so far that even some communists are not averse to cite Soros. After all, Soros knows all about capitalism, he won’t lie or tell lies.
As is customary in geniuses of post-modernism, Soros’ biography is full of romantic detail and white spots. According to some, he – a Jewish boy – was miraculously saved from extermination in Nazi camps; he was hidden by Christians, then obtained false documents. Another version is that he himself, being a teenager at that time, helped the fascists to rob Hungarian Jews and that, therefore, he was forced to flee in 1947. There, the poor thing allegedly worked as a railway porter, a dishwasher in a bar - and suddenly he was able to enter one of the most prestigious universities in the world, the London School of Economics. And furthermore, he became a close associate of the Rothschild bankers. Democracy is s society of equal opportunities!
Then follows the marvelous story how the hard-working, modest youth, saving his pennies and pfennigs, became a global financial with huge quantities of money of non-transparent origin, and hidden from the tax men on the secretive island of Curacao, Mr. Soros plans and executes pirate-style attacks on national currencies, shatters their exchange-rates on the world money markets.
The first big hits by these "royal pirates from Curacao" were directed against European currencies, of friends and allies of the United States. In 1992 a "Black Wednesday" was organized in England, when the English pound fell by 12 percent. The country’s economy was badly hit, but Soros’ fee amounted to US $1 billion. In the same year, the Italian lira was seriously devalued, in order to force its "democrats" to start a fire sale of state property, and to buy up such properties for a song. The Russian Chubais breed does not live on the shores of the Neva.
Soros also lent a hand in bankrupting Argentina. Whilst the intimate friend of our reformers, Domingo Cavallo, was destroying Argentina’s production system, Soros bought up 400,00 ha. of land (not to mention real estate in Buenos Aires) and turned the large-scale beef producer. He intends to supply Europe – just at a time when in Europe the psychosis about "mad cow disease" was rampant, yet in the USA nobody has ever heard about such an affliction.
In year 1997 the Soros "Sonderkommando" was transferred to the Eastern Front – the task was to stop the economic growth of the "Asian Tigers". Here the conditions required some hard work – but the currencies of Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines crashed. For some time the economies of these countries were undermined. Indonesia was thrown into complete chaos. According to the estimates, it cost Malaysia US $30 billion to save its financial system, and the country was thrown back it its development by 10-15 years.
Taiwan too, was badly hit. This destructive speculator generated such hatred there, that a special decree threatened "any person cooperating with Soros funds" would be charged with a criminal offense. What harsh treatment of robbers! What lack of tolerance!
This small list of details is cited to illustrate the kind of destructive machinery – named conditionally "SOROS" invaded, in the 1980s, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland and in 1987 the Soviet Union, and took over key positions in Moscow.
It must be stressed, that the basis for Soros’ activities in the Soviet Union in 1987 was created by Gorbachev, who knew well enough that he dealt with a prominent ideologue and even philosopher of anti-Communism, who was closely associated with the American secret service – his links to the CIA and Israeli Mossad had caused Soros’ expulsion from these countries: Hungary, Czechoslovakia and Romania. Soros did not hide then, and does not do so today, that his entire "humanitarian" activity was aimed at the destruction of the USSR. This ought to be kept in mind by those old communists who still believe that Gorbachev "wanted the best, but it just didn’t work out."
But now, let us see how Soros inculcates all of us on behalf of his Western masters with the "ideology of open society". First of all, a staff of specialists put together by Soros and permeated with this ideology, has undertaken to take into their hands the supplying to all Russian libraries in schools, including libraries in the universities, under strict ideological censorship as required by Soros, who is footing the publishing of these books. Nowadays the supply of books to libraries of Russia is impossible to introduce books written by progressive thinkers and Marxists.
People fed by Soros exercise almost total control over the selection of textbooks for all Russian schools. The standard of some textbooks in the humanities is so horrendously low, and the content so blatantly ideologized, that it becomes possible to speak of a crime against the nation. In late 1998, the Soros Institute in Russia- "Open Society" undertook to realize a mega-project entitled "The Development of Education in Russia", which is to take five years. For 1999 it was planned to implement to reeducate rural teachers at a cost of US $100-150 millions, according to the Russian "Nezavisimaya Gazeta" of September 19, 1998. One can only imagine the goals implemented by Soros in the course of thjs "preparation." The Russia’s rural teachers – this generic stimulus of our culture nurtured by Lev Tolstoy and Ushinski, will now come under the sway of the sway of those "Kulturtraeger" of Soros, the haters of the Russian statehood.
Georgia revolt carried mark of Soros
By MARK MacKINNON
From Toronto Globe and Mail
Tbilisi — It was back in February that billionaire financier George Soros began laying the brickwork for the toppling of Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze.
That month, funds from his Open Society Institute sent a 31-year-old Tbilisi activist named Giga Bokeria to Serbia to meet with members of the Otpor (Resistance) movement and learn how they used street demonstrations to topple dictator Slobodan Milosevic. Then, in the summer, Mr. Soros's foundation paid for a return trip to Georgia by Otpor activists, who ran three-day courses teaching more than 1,000 students how to stage a peaceful revolution.
The best summary of George Soros humanitarian activities in South-East Europe gave Gilles d'Aymery in an article "Mapping the Human Rights Crowd in the Balkans" published on July 23, 2001 in the Jugoinfo vitrine:
"Behind the veil of legitimacy and humanitarian concerns can be found the
same powerful people and organizations such as the Open Society Institute
of the billionaire and - as always characterized - philanthropist, George
Soros, the Ford Foundation, the United States Institute of Peace, the
National Endowment for Democracy and many more, financing and using a maze of well known NGO's such as Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, theInternational Crisis Group, etc., as well as more obscure entities ... But,among all of them, shining as the Southern star, is George Soros who, like an immense Jules Verne octopus, extends his tentacles all over Eastern Europe, South-Eastern Europe, the Caucasus as well as the republics of the former Soviet Union. With the help of these various groups (it is possible) not only to shape but to create the news, the agenda and public opinion to further aims which are, in short, the control of the world, its natural resources and the furtherance of the uniform ideal of a perfect world polity made in America."
George Soros has recouped some of his recent NASDAQ losses, and is poised to gain even more thanks to an orchestrated “crisis” precipitated by the New World Order’s puppet candidate for president of Peru, Alejandro Toledo Manrique.
Soros, the canny speculator, has profited from the fall in the last three days of the Peruvian monetary unit, the Sol, as well as a decline in Peruvian “Brady” bonds provoked by Toledo Manrique’s abrupt withdrawal from participation in the Peruvian runoff election. Soros’ first adventure in Peruvian currency was successful in Wall Street style 'shorting' during the crash of the Peruvian economy under the Garcia Perez regime in 1988-90, when Toledo Manrique was a Peruvian economic advisor. This was followed by a 'gain' reported to be as much as $500,000,000 when the Peruvian economy improved under President Fujimori in 1993. These profits set the stage for Soros' later manipulative attacks on Indonesia and Thailand, aided by IMF and World Bank interference.
Peruvian currency and derivatives lost their allure to Soros due to the stabilization measures taken by Fujimori (which is examplified by the total lack of volatility in this money during the past six months), which led to Soros relying on investment experts who put his funds and personal wealth into equities, particularly high-tech stocks. As the NASDAQ index fell, Soros felt increasingly ill at ease until, after an April 18 panic meeting with his top people, he decided to return to familiar and more comfortable ground - plays on Peru.
He quickly arranged a US tour of NWO groups in Washington and New York for Toledo Manrique, capped by a private dinner on April 27 between himself and Toledo Manrique, with Toledo Manrique’s exwife Eliane Karp, former executive of World Bank, USAID, Banco Sudameris (France) and one of the largest banks in Israel. At this meeting it was agreed that Toledo Manrique would receive the financing necessary to defeat Fujimori while Karp would keep Soros advised in advance of Toledo Manrique’s plans and activities. After concluding this deal. Soros was able to accept the resignations of his top executives and return to his old games.
