SOROS CONVENES ‘BRETTON WOODS II’
By Pete Papaherakles
Internationalist billionaire George Soros is holding his international conference April 8 to April 11 at Bretton Woods, N.H., the noted birthplace of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, where he plans to “rearrange the entire financial order,” as he noted in a November 2009 article in The Japan Times Online.
This “Bretton Woods II” comes along just as the Trilateral Commission will be meeting at the same time in Washington, D.C. With an apparent goal of creating nothing less than a new global economy, Soros is spending $50 million in New Hampshire to bring together up to 200 academic, business and government policy leaders under his Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET).
As AFP goes to press, the attendees are to include ex-Fed Chairman Paul Volcker, former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and World Bank executive and Nobel Prize winner in economics Joseph Stiglitz.
The conference is slated for the Mount Washington Hotel, site of the historic 1944 Bretton Woods conference, which established the post-World War II international financial architecture.
Soros chose this site because he expects his proposed reforms to be as radical as those promoted by British economist John Maynard Keynes, the much-praised “genius” of the original Bretton Woods project.
Keynesian economics have been portrayed as a cure to the Western world’s postwar devastation, in that governments were liberated of money creation restrictions imposed by the gold standard, even while global financiers controlled much of the world’s gold like they do now. Governments, under the new paradigm after the war, were encouraged to promote economic growth and macroeconomic stability by creating more debt-based money for everything that ailed the economy—debt that has brought most of the world’s economies to the brink of bankruptcy.
Now Soros comes along as the new Keynes to save the day by proposing another miracle solution to our problems, couched in lofty doublespeak such as “reform,” “cooperation” and “equal participation.” Soros is proposing the end of sovereignty as we know it.
“Reorganizing the world order will need to extend beyond the financial system,” Soros wrote in his opinion piece.
Soros is saying that a washed-up America should be replaced by a world government with a global currency under UN rule. He also advocates that China should be top dog while we play second fiddle. What Soros doesn’t say is that two decades of outsourcing U.S. industry, opening the borders and bankrupting the economy with pointless wars and other debacles have been intentionally orchestrated so that now international bankers can tell the world the system is broken and that the individuals who broke it need to show us how to fix it.
Georgy Schwartz, aka George Soros, is a Hungarian Jew who has been described as anti-God, anti-family and anti-American. By his own admission he even helped confiscate the homes of fellow Jews in Hungary in 1944.
In an interview with Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes he said 1944 was the best year of his life. Asked by Kroft if he felt any remorse, he answered, “No, not at all; I rather enjoyed it.”
“No feelings of guilt?” asked Kroft. “No,” answered Soros, “only feelings of power.”
Soros made his first billion as a currency speculator in 1992 by shorting the British pound and causing misery to millions of hardworking British citizens. He went on to cause the 1999 Russiagate scandal, almost collapsing the Russian economy. It was described as “one of the greatest social robberies in human history.”
He did the same to Thailand and Malaysia in 1997, causing the Asian financial crisis of that time. Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad called him “a villain and a moron,” while Thailand’s PM referred to him as “Dracula.” He also helped dismantle Yugoslavia and caused major trouble in Japan, Indonesia, Georgia, Ukraine and Burma by raiding their economies.
Soros also fosters cultural degeneracy by supporting abortion rights, atheism, drug legalization, sex education, euthanasia, feminism, gun control, globalization, mass immigration, gay marriage etc. Soros funded Barack Obama’s campaign and often visits the White House.
At 81, taking down America appears to be his final challenge. “The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States. The time has come for a very serious adjustment,” he said.
Soros Exposed: Research on the Progressive Puppet Master
November 9, 2010 – 18:08 ET
For months, Glenn has been pulling back the
structure progressives have worked decades to put in place. Beneath every layer
lies one common thread: George Soros. Tonight on TV, Glenn presents an in-depth
look at the Puppet Master, billionaire financier George Soros, one of the most
powerful forces in the Progressive Movement. But don’t just take Glenn’s word
for it. Read. Analyze. Do your own homework and come to your own conclusions –
read below to fact check all the sources used on tonight’s show.
“It is sort of a disease when you consider yourself
some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now
since I began to live it out,” (The Independent, June 3, 1993)
“I admit that I have always harbored an exaggerated
view of self-importance –to put it bluntly, I fancied myself as some kind of god
or an economic reformer like Keynes or, even better, a scientist like Einstein,”
(The Alchemy of Finance, George Soros)
According to friend Byron Wien (now with the
Blackstone Group), “You must understand he thinks he’s been anointed by God to solve
insoluble problems. The proof is that he has been so successful at making so much.
He therefore thinks he has a responsibility to give money away,” (Time Magazine,
Sept 1, 1997)
“If truth be known, I carried some rather potent
messianic fantasies with me from childhood which I felt I had to control, otherwise
I might end up in the loony bin. But when I made my way in the world I wanted to
indulge myself in my fantasies to the extent that I could afford.”
George Soros 60 Minutes Interview – 12/20/98
KROFT: Are you religious?
Mr. SOROS: No.
KROFT: Do you believe in God?
Mr. SOROS: No.
KROFT: (Voiceover) Soros told us he believes God was created by man, not the other
way around, which may be why he thinks he can smooth out the world’s imperfections.
“THE MAN WHO BROKE THE BANK OF ENGLAND”
“As September 15 wore on, George Soros’s confidence
that Britain would pull the pound out of the ERM was growing. It had been Stanley
Druckenmiller who had thought the time ripe for making a bet against the sterling.
He talked to Soros about doing something. Soros gave him the green light but urged
his head trader to bet an even larger sum than Druckenmiller had in mind. And so
Druckenmiller, acting for Soros, sold $10 billion worth of sterling… The next morning
at 7:00, the phone rang at Soros’s home. It was Stan Druckenmiller with news… While
George Soros had slept, he racked a profit $958 million. When Soros’s gains from
other positions he took during the ERM crisis were tallied, he racked up close to
$2 billion… It was this bet, this single act of placing $10 billion on the fact
that Britain would have to devalue the pound, that made George Soros world famous,”
(SOROS THE UNAUTHORIZED BIOGRAPHY, pgs 5-6).
“He famously shorted the British pound in 1992,
wagering $10 billion on a drop in its value. In a desperate bid to keep its currency
afloat, the Bank of England tried to buy up pounds as fast as Soros could dump them.
However, as more and more investors followed Soros’ lead and joined his efforts,
the Bank of England eventually gave up. The British pound was devalued, launching
a tsunami of financial turmoil from Tokyo to Rome. When it was over, millions of
hardworking Britons confronted their diminished savings, while Soros counted his
gains. He had personally made nearly $2 billion on the catastrophe,” (The Shadow
Party, pg. 4).
Soros has said of this event: “I had no platform,
so I deliberately [did] the sterling thing to create a platform. Obviously people
care about the man who made a lot of money…my influence has continued to grow and
I do have access to,”(Time Magazine, Sept 1, 1997)
In 1997, during the Asian financial crisis,
the then Malaysian Prime Minister, Mahathir bin Mohamad, accused him of bringing
down the Malaysian currency, the ringgit, through his trading activities. In Thailand
he was branded an “economic war criminal” who “sucks the blood from the people”.
“Just write that the former Soviet Empire is
now called the Soros Empire,” (The New Republic, Jan 1994)
“I am acting out a fantasy and so is
Eastern Europe. A psychiatrist once told me how dangerous it is to act out fantasies
and I am beginning to see what he meant,” (http://www.osi.hu/oss/postscript.html)
In a 1998 interview with Steve Kroft, Soros was
asked if he felt guilty about confiscating property from Jews as a teenager. He
“I don’t deny the Jews their right to a national
existence–but I don’t want to be part of it.”
That experience notwithstanding, Soros has chosen to exclude Israel and Jewish causes,
by and large, from his massive philanthropy-a decision that has caused comment among
one of his colleagues in the financial community, particularly those who are strong
supporters of Israel. In Hungary, Soros has been subject to anti-Semitic attacks.
Referring to being a target, Soros, in his book “Underwriting Democracy,” wrote,
“I am ready to stand up and be counted.” When I mentioned that rather suggestive
line to Soros during one of several extended interviews with him, he responded quickly,
“Right. It took me a long time.”
He continued, “My mother was quite anti-Semitic, and ashamed of being Jewish. Given
the culture in which one lived, being Jewish was a clear-cut stigma, disadvantage,
a handicap-and, therefore, there was always the desire to transcend it, to escape
it.” He confirmed what someone had told me-that his family name had long ago been
changed from Schwartz. “So the assimilationist Jews of Hungary had a deep sense
of inferiority and it took me a long time to work through that,” he said,
adding, however, that he succeeded in doing so many years ago… “I am escaping the
particular. I think I am doing exactly that by espousing this universal concept”-of
open society. “In other words, I don’t think that you can ever overcome anti-Semitism
if you behave as a tribe… the only way you can overcome it is if you give up the

did not express itself in a sense of tribal loyalty that would have led me to support
INFO ON NAME CHANGE FROM SHWARTZ TO SOROS
Born in Hungary in 1930, Mr. Soros began life
as George Schwartz. His father, Tivadar, was from humble origins; his mother, Erzebet,
from money. Both were Jews, but nonobservant (she eventually converted to Catholicism).
Once married, Tivadar had to work just two hours a day managing some of his wife’s
family property, which provided a handsome living for them and their two sons, Paul
and George. At some point during the boys’ childhood, the parents decided to
change the family name and chose the Hungarian-sounding but in fact obscure Soros.
It means “soar” (in the future tense) in Esperanto, the made-up trans-European language
promoted by those who dreamed of a world free of nationality. Tivadar was among
its leading proponents. (Source: The Mind of George Soros; Meet the Esperanto enthusiast
who wants to save the world from President Bush, 2 March 2004, The Wall Street Journal)
Before the end of the war, however, Soros’ upper-middle-class
world had inverted. The family posed as Christians and separated to hide from the
Germans. They changed their name from Schwartz (considered too Jewish-sounding)
to Soros (more reflective of the family’s Hungarian roots and because his father
liked the palindrome). (The elusive billionaire: An author tries valiantly to
capture the essence of philanthropist George Soros, Vancouver Sun, 20 April 2002)
MORE ON TIVADAR SOROS
The other day, George Soros and his older brother
Paul, an engineer turned investor-philanthropist, met in the offices of Soros Fund
Management to discuss their father. The occasion was the English-language publication
of Tivadar Soros’s wartime memoir, “Masquerade: Dancing Around Death in Nazi-Occupied
Hungary,” which was first published in 1965 in Esperanto, one of six languages in
which Soros pere was fluent.
“It was his nature, regardless of difficulties, to believe that one must behave
like a human being and one must make the most of life,” Paul Soros said, explaining
the charm and ebullience of his father, who, in the book, is described by his five-year-old
son George as “a married bachelor,” and who, even when living semi-reclusively under
an assumed Christian identity, never missed his daily swim. “I remember during the
siege we went to the opera, because at a time when there was no food the opera still
served very nice hors d’oeuvres and patisserie. Whether or not it was prudent, the
idea was that you should make the most of your circumstances.”
George, who, like Paul, has inherited his father’s broad face, pointed out that
Tivadar’s fondness for the comforts of bourgeois life was not accompanied by a docile
bourgeois sensibility. “We didn’t preserve ordinariness,” George said. “He made
us very conscious that these were extraordinary times and that the normal rules
didn’t apply.” In the book, Tivadar writes that at one point young George was required
by the authorities to deliver notices to certain Jews that they should report to
the Rabbinical Seminary with blankets and food. “This was a profoundly important
experience for me,” George said. “My father said, ‘You should go ahead and deliver
them, but tell the people that if they report they will be deported.’ The reply
from one man was ‘I am a law-abiding citizen. They can’t do anything to me.’ I told
my father, and that was an occasion for a lecture that there are times when you
have laws that are immoral, and if you obey them you perish.”
“Masquerade” contains a great deal of black social comedy; a running theme is Tivadar’s
efforts to convince his recalcitrant mother-in-law that, all things considered,
it really would be best if she stopped regarding the occupation as a personal insult.
(“I refuse to go anywhere if the people don’t know who I am and I have to pretend
I’m somebody else all the time,” she said of his attempts to find a safe house for
her.) Tivadar’s own ease with his assumed identity-he grew a mustache, and went
by Elek Szabo-led him, one day during an air raid, to tell a neighbor in
the shelter about the time he approached the podium on which Hitler was standing
at the 1936 Winter Olympics, just to see how close he could get. “Hardly fifteen
minutes had passed after my tale when there was suddenly a great commotion,” Tivadar
wrote. “The shelter commander appeared, surrounded by several officers. . . . It
transpired that the air-defense commander, in great excitement that there was someone
present who had seen Hitler, had radioed headquarters and a group had come over
right away to see this privileged person.”
Tivadar’s energies, though, were largely devoted to the extremely serious business
of procuring papers to save relatives and friends from a new, unimaginable form
of terror. “My father was ahead of the curve, because he recognized the moment the
Germans came in that this was a different world and one had to act differently,”
George said. He and Paul agreed that they still try to live by their father’s resourceful
example. “The funny thing is that in character we probably both inherited a lot
more from our mother,” George said.
Soros has long been calling for increased globalization.
In “The Crisis of Global Capitalism,” 1998 he writes: “To stabilize and regulate
a truly global economy, we need some global system of political decision-making.
In short, we need a global society to support our global economy. A global society
does not mean a global state. To abolish the existence of states is neither feasible
nor desirable; but insofar as there are collective interests that transcend state
boundaries, the sovereignty of states must be subordinated to international law
and international institutions. Interestingly, the greatest opposition to this idea
is coming from the United States. But there has never been a time when a strong
lead from the U.S. and other like-minded countries could achieve such powerful and
benign results. With the right sense of leadership and with clarity of purpose,
the U.S. and its allies could help to stabilize the global economic system and to
extend and uphold universal human values. The opportunity is waiting to be grasped.”
(Source: The Crisis of Global Capitalism.(book excerpt), George Soros, 7 December
During this year he called for greater authority
to institutions such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF)
and for an International Credit Insurance Corp. to establish some kind of supervision
over national supervisory authorities and stated, “At the same time, there remains
the urgent need for Congress to authorise an increase in the capital of the IMF.”
He admitted that such “radical ideas” could not even be considered until Congress
“changes its attitude toward international institutions in general and the IMF in
(Source: Soros calls for global credit insurance agency, 15 September
1998, Reuters News)
Soros has said that the United States would
cease to be the world’s undisputed dominant force. “The veto power that we have
in the International Monetary Fund will disappear. We will be downsized. At the
same time, hopefully, we will have a better working system and opponents will be
more downsized than we will.”
(Source: BOSTON, Oct. 29 — Massachusetts Institute of Technology press release
“The Bubble of American Supremacy,”:
“The disparity between private goods and public goods manifests itself in a number
of ways. First, there is a growing inequality between rich and poor, both within
countries and among countries. Admittedly, globalisation is not a zero-sum game:
its benefits exceed the costs in the sense that the increased wealth produced by
globalisation could be used to make up for the inequities and other shortcomings
of globalisation and there would still be some extra wealth left over.
The trouble is that the winners do not compensate the losers either within states
or between states. The welfare state as we know it has become unsustainable and
international income redistribution is practically nonexistent. Total international
assistance amounted to $US56.5 billion ($74.4 billion) in 2002. This amount represents
only 0.18 per cent of global GDP. As a result, the gap between the rich and the
poor continues to grow.”
(Source: Edited extract from The Bubble of American Supremacy by George Soros via
The Sydney Morning Herald, February 4, 2004)
At the London School of Economics, Soros
discovered the work of philosopher Karl Popper, whose ideas on open society had
a profound influence on his thinking. He was attracted to Popper’s critique of totalitarianism,
The Open Society and Its Enemies, which maintained that societies can only flourish
when they allow democratic governance, freedom of expression, a diverse range of
opinion, and respect for individual rights. Later, working as a trader and analyst,
he adapted Popper to develop his own “theory of reflexivity,” a set of ideas that
seeks to explain the relationship between thought and reality, which he used to
predict, among other things, the emergence of financial bubbles.
Soros began to apply his theory to investing and concluded that he had more talent
for trading than for philosophy. In 1967 he helped establish an offshore investment
fund; and in 1973 he set up a private investment firm that eventually evolved into
the Quantum Fund, one of the first hedge funds.
QUOTES FROM “The Open Society and Its Enemies:
Hegel and Marx,” by Karl Popper (Vol. 2), by Karl Popper
The development of capitalism has led to the
elimination of all classes but two, a small bourgeiouse and a huge proletariat:
and the increase of misery has forced the latter to revolt against its exploiters.
The conclusions are, first, that the workers must win the struggle, secondly
that, by eliminating bourgeiouse, they must establish a classless society, since
only one class remains. (pg 151-152)
But all over the earth, organized political
power has begun to perform far-reaching economic functions. Unrestrained
capitalism has given way to a new historical period, to our own period of political
interventionism, of the economic interference of the state. Interventionism has
assumed various forms. There is the Russian variety; there is the
fascist form of totalitarianism; and their s the domestic interventionism of England,
of the United States, and the “Smaller Democracies” led by Sweden where the technology
of democratic intervention has reached the highest level so far. (pg 155)
Admittedly, increasing misery must produce resistance,
and it is even likely to produce rebellious outbreaks. But the assumption
of our argument is that the misery cannot be alleviated until victory has been
won in the social revolution. (pg 163)
I am not in all cases and under all circumstance
against a violent revolution. (pg 166)
…the working of democracy rests
largely upon the understanding that a government which attempts to misuse
its powers and to establish itself as a tyranny (or which tolerates the
establishment of a tyranny by anybody else) outlaws itself, and that the citizens
have not only a right, but also a duty to consider the action of such government
a crime, and its members as a dangerous gang of criminals. (pg 167)
MORE ABOUT KARL POPPER
Although compelled to leave his native Austria
in the 1930s (because of his Jewish ancestry), his book is remarkably
free from personal bitterness or sadness.
He did not shrink from tracing the sources of
those dangerous ideas to Marx, to Hegel, and even to that greatest of all philosophers,
Plato. At a time when many intellectuals had lost faith in democracy, Popper
offered a spirited defense of democratic principles and outlined a compelling vision
of a society grounded in democratic reforms.
Popper was a fallibilist, one who
perceives great error and danger in any theory of knowledge—or regime—that claimed
to offer certain truth. In such a system, there would be no incentive
to establish social and political structures that promote learning or the free exchange
of ideas; truth is already at hand. In the name of historical progress, the regime
may then justify the squelching of human freedoms and even atrocities on a grand
George Soros, who first encountered The
Open Society as Popper’s student at the London School of Economics, founded
the Open Society Institute to propagate Popper’s ideas, particularly in Eastern
Europe. Thus the political philosophy Popper first articulated before
the start of the Cold War is now being studied and put into practice in countries
newly emerging from behind the Iron Curtain.
He left school at age sixteen and began auditing
lectures at the University of Vienna. Although a Marxist as a teenager, he was
repelled in 1919 by the leftist-inspired street violence of postwar Vienna that
resulted in the deaths of demonstrators. That same year, he studied Freud’s
psychoanalysis and worked for a time with psychiatrist Alfred Adler.
In 1922 he matriculated at the University of
Vienna. To support himself, he apprenticed himself to a cabinetmaker and took up
social work. Pursuing his goal of becoming a schoolteacher, Popper subsequently
returned to the university. In 1928, he earned a Ph.D. in philosophy and, in 1929,
a teacher’s certificate. Beginning in the late 1920s, Popper began interacting with
members of the famous Vienna Circle of logical positivists, a group of prominent
intellectuals trying to articulate the importance of science for philosophy. Shortly
after publishing (in German) a then little-noticed but classic work on the logical
foundations of science in 1934, Popper left Austria under the threat of Nazi anti-Semitism.
From New Zealand, where he had obtained a university teaching post, he returned
to England after World War II as professor of philosophy of science at the London
School of Economics, where he remained until his retirement.
SOROS’ CURRENT TIES
SOROS AND PRESIDENT OBAMA
In December 2006, Soros met with presidential
hopeful Barack Obama in Soros’ New York office. Soros had previously hosted a fundraiser
for Obama during his 2004 campaign for the Senate.
On January 16, 2007, Obama announce the creation
of a presidential exploratory committee and within hours Soros sent a contribution
of $2,100, the maximum allowable under campaign finance laws.
Days after Obama was elected in November of
2008, Soros said in an interview “I think we need a large stimulus package which
will provide funds for state and local government to maintain their budgets – because
they are not allowed by the constitution to run a deficit. For such a program to
be successful, the federal government would need to provide hundreds of billions
of dollars. In addition, another infrastructure program is necessary. In total,
the cost would be in the 300 to 600 billion dollar range.” Since then, Congress
passed a $787 billion stimulus and Obama very recently introduced a $50 billion
plan to improve the country’s transportation program, saying “I want
America to have the best infrastructure in the world.”
In that same interview, Soros called for cap
& trade: “I think this is a great opportunity to finally deal with global warming
and energy dependence. The US needs a cap and trade system with auctioning of licenses
for emissions rights. I would use the revenues from these auctions to launch a new,
environmentally friendly energy policy. That would be yet another federal program
that could help us to overcome the current stagnation.” Since then, Congress has
introduced cap & trade legislation. (More info in “going green” section)
Also in that interview, Soros said “In 2010,
the Bush tax cuts will expire and we should not extend them.” Since then, Obama
expressed his opposition to the Bush tax cuts in an interview with ABC on September
9th: “All those middle class folks who need tax relief
hostage right now in order to provide tax breaks for the top two percent wealthiest
Americans, who don’t need a tax break, aren’t asking for a tax break. And you know,
if we could afford it, it’d be one thing. But we know that’s gonna cost $700 billion
over ten years. And so, that is not a smart thing to do for the economy”
Soros is also on board with Obama’s proposals
to reform the banking system. In an interview with the BBC: Interviewer:
Now President Obama last week announced some quite radical proposals to reform the
banking system. He wants them out of what he calls “proprietary trading”,
using their capital to speculate on their own account, and also he wants a limit
on their size. Are these constructive measures in your view? Soros:
Very much so these are the right … it goes in the right direction.
In my opinion, it doesn’t actually go far enough because it still leaves the problem
of too big to fail. In other words, if you let’s say now again Goldman Sachs
gives up its banking license, it becomes then an investment bank …
Since Obama’s been in office, Soros has
made four visits to the White House
ALSO IN HIS 2008 INTERVIEW: Soros: “I
think this is a great opportunity to finally deal with global warming and energy
dependence. The US needs a cap and trade system with auctioning of licenses for
emissions rights. I would use the revenues from these auctions to launch a new,
environmentally friendly energy policy. That would be yet another federal program
that could help us to overcome the current stagnation. SPIEGEL: Your proposal
would be dismissed on Wall Street as “big government.” Republicans might call it
European-style “socialism.” Soros: That is exactly what we need now.
I am against market fundamentalism. I think this propaganda that government involvement
is always bad has been very successful — but also very harmful to our society.
SPIEGEL: Would you advise the new president to say that publicly? Soros:
He has already spoken about changing the political discourse. I think it is better
to have a government that wants to provide good government than a government that
doesn’t believe in government.
WILL ANOTHER FISCAL STIMULUS BE NEXT?
“The simple truth is that the private sector
does not employ available resources. Mr. Obama has in fact been very friendly to
business, and corporations are operating profitably. But instead of investing, they
are building up liquidity. Perhaps a Republican victory would boost their confidence,
but in the meantime, investment and employment require fiscal stimulus,” (Financial
Times, Oct. 4, 2010)
LAUNCHING A WAR AGAINST PRESIDENT BUSH
Soros told the Washington Post: “I have made
rejection of the Bush doctrine the central project of my life… America, under Bush,
is a danger to the world. And I’m willing to put my money where my mouth is.”
Also during that election: “This is the most
important election of my lifetime. These aren’t normal times. The ends justify every
legal means possible.”
SOROS AND VAN JONES
Soros has also supported Van Jones – Originally
through the Open Society Institute which gave the Ella Baker Center $151,800
in 2006 and $140,000 in 2007. Van Jones was head of the Ella Baker Center during
those years. OSI also funded Green for All in 2008 — they received a
grant in the amount of $75,000 to “integrate the Civic Justice Corps into Green
For All’s campaign to create a national Clean Energy Corps.” while Van Jones
was running it. Van Jones later appeared as a senior fellow at the Center for American
Progress. Additionally, OSI helped fund TIDES which then started the Apollo Alliance
(where Van Jones sat on the board).
CAP & TRADE
Soros is also a huge proponent of cap and trade.
The sot below sounds very similar to VAN JONES’ “We’renot going to put a new battery
in a broken system.”
on a better world order where we work together to resolve problems that confront
humanity like global warming. And I think that dealing with global warming will
require a lot of investment. SOROS:
You see, for the last 25 years the world economy, the motor of the world economy
that has been driving it was consumption by the American consumer who has been spending
more than he has been saving, all right? Than he’s been producing. So that motor
is now switched off. It’s finished. It’s run out of — can’t continue. You need a
new motor. And we have a big problem. Global warming. It requires big investment.
And that could be the motor of the world economy in the years to come…Instead
of consuming, building an electricity grid, saving on energy, rewiring the houses,
adjusting your lifestyle where energy has got to cost more until it you introduce
those new things. So it will be painful. But at least we will survive and not cook.
talking about this being the end of an era and needing to create a whole new paradigm
for the economic model of the country, of the world, right?
MORE ON GREEN INITIATIVES
In 2009, Soros announced the formation
of the Climate Policy Initiative to address global warming, and said he would fund
it with $10 million a year over 10 years
Friends of the Earth is another group that receives
Soros money. In 2008 they received $50,000 from OSI to “build and support an international
network of organizations dedicated to improving the environmental, social and developmental
impacts of Chinese overseas investments.” Friends of the Earth also received $180,000
from Tides Foundation in 2008 to “integrate a climate equity perspective in the

CENTER FOR AMERICAN PROGRESS
Early in 2003, Soros pledged $3 Million over
3 years to the think tank
He awarded $1 Million in grants to Center for
American Progress for 2008/2009
The group was largely set up to prevent Bush
from gaining re-election in 2004. Soros told the Washington Post: “I
have made rejection of the Bush doctrine the central project of my life… America,
under Bush, is a danger to the world. And I’m willing to put my money where
my mouth is.”
The organization is headed by John Podesta
Van Jones is currently a senior fellow
In its first year, CAP took in more than $10
In 2006, CAP launched a network of liberal religious
leaders called Faith in Public Life to “fuel this burgeoning faith movement
with cutting edge strategies and capacity-building resources”
CAP’s campus Progress, with a staff of 15 and
a large network of student advisers, offers money and guidance to help college activists
launch initiatives and newspapers
CAP has a congressional outreach staff and aides
dedicated to booking its experts on talk shows. It has a studio that offers daily
taped segments and talking points for radio hosts, and it broadcasts liberal radio
host Ed Schultz’s show when he’s in town.
2008 funding from Open Society Institute to
Tides (latest year for which the OSI has filed a Form 990 document with the IRS):
The Tides Center: $1.354 million
Tides Foundation: $2.875 million
Drummond Pike is Founder & CEO of Tides Foundation.
He is also Treasurer of Democracy Alliance, a group that was founded with major
financial backing from member George Soros.
The Apollo Alliance is a project of the Tides
Van Jones is a former board member
o Apollo Alliance helped to design and promote the stimulus
bill which included $110 billion for “green spending”
Open Society gave Sojourners a $200,000
grant in 2004, $25,000 in 2006, and $100,000 in 2007.
THE QUANTUM FUND
Soros launched the Quantum Fund after immigration
to America from London in 1956. It was one of the world’s first private hedge funds.
Soros recently passed much of the fund’s management
to his two grown sons, Robert and Jonathan
The fund, which is registered in the Netherlands
Antilles, turned an original investment of six million dollars, in 1969, into five
and a half billion dollars by 1999.
AMERICAN CONSTITUTION SOCIETY
The American Constitution Society is a left-wing
legal activist group working to change our nation’s laws and approaches towards

Meet Mr. Soros…
by MR. CONSERVATIVE on OCTOBER 29, 2010
This just might explain a whole lot of what is happening in today’s world. If you want to be informed, take the time to read about one of the most corrupt men of our generation, or should we say “the godfather of evil”.
Most of us have heard of him. Few really know who he is or what he’s got planned for us (or the rest of the world). Apparently, Obama knows him well. Here is some information to sink your teeth into.
PS: this CBS writer, Steve Kroft, certainly likes to live on the edge.
Some time ago I wrote an article questioning who might be the power or puppet master behind Barack Hussein Obama. It has to be someone because of Obama’s meteoric rise to power, with experience at virtually nothing, with questionable wisdom, and with a mysterious past that has been carefully erased and hidden where no one can check it. This puppet master, whomever he is, apparently paid for Obama’s education and his travels to Pakistan for some mysterious purpose, and promoted him into Illinois, then national politics.
I once suggested it might be billionaire George Soros. I now believe that to be the case more than ever.
George Soros might be the most evil man in the world, with intent to destroy America and every value we have held dear. Obama seems to be in lockstep with Soros’ philosophies and simply a tool in Soros’ world-changing strategies. Both must be stopped.
Read the below article and judge for yourself. It is from
“Who is behind Barak Obama? Who is pulling the strings?”
Here is what (CBS’) Mr. (Steve) Kroft’s research has turned up…bit of a read, but it took 4 months to put it together.
GEORGE SOROS TEA PARTY ENEMY #1
“The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States.” George Soros
“George Soros is an evil man. He’s anti-God, anti-family, anti-American, and anti-good.” Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson
Is it possible to lay the global financial meltdown, the radicalizing of the Democratic Party, and America ‘s moral decline, at the feet of one man?
YES, It is indeed possible.
If George Soros isn’t the world’s preeminent “malignant messianic narcissist,” he’ll do until Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot are reincarnated.
What we have in Soros, is a multi-billionaire atheist, with skewed moral values, and a sociopath’s lack of conscience. He considers himself to be an elitist world class philosopher, despises the American Way and just loves to do social engineering (change cultures).
Soros is the power behind the throne of Obama. I accuse George Soros of being the PUPPET MASTER that is pulling Obama’s strings.
Gyargy Schwartz, better known to the world as George Soros, was born August 12, 1930 in Hungary. Soros’ father, Tivadar, was a fervent practitioner of Esperanto, a language invented in 1887, and designed to be the first global language, free of any national identity.
The Schwartz’s, who were non-practicing Jews, changed the family name to Soros, in order to facilitate assimilation into the gentile population, as the Nazis spread into Hungary during the 1930s.
When Hitler’s henchman Adolf Eichmann arrived in Hungary, to oversee the murder of that country’s Jews, George Soros ended up with a man whose job was confiscating property from the Jewish population. Soros went with him on his rounds.
Soros has repeatedly called 1944 “the best year of his life.”
“70% of Mr. Soros’s fellow Jews in Hungary, nearly a half-million human beings, were annihilated in that year yet he gives no sign that this put any damper on his elation, either at the time or indeed in retrospect.”
During an interview with “Sixty Minute’s” Steve Kroft, Soros was asked about his “best year:”
KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.
SOROS: Yes. Yes.
KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from your fellow Jews, friends and neighbors.
SOROS: Yes. That’s right. Yes.
KROFT: I mean, that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?
SOROS: Not, not at all. Not at all, I rather enjoyed it…
KROFT: No No feeling of guilt?
SOROS: No, only feelings of absolute power.
In his article, Muravchik describes how Soros has admitted to having “carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me in trouble.”
Be that as it may. After WWII, Soros attended the London School of Economics, where he fell under the thrall of fellow atheist and Hungarian, Karl Popper, one of his professors. Popper was a mentor to Soros until Popper’s death in 1994. Two of Popper’s most influential teachings concerned “the open society,” and Fallibilism.
Fallibilism is the philosophical doctrine that all claims of knowledge could, in principle, be mistaken. Then again, I could be wrong about that.
The “open society” basically refers to a “test and evaluate” approach to social engineering. Regarding “open society” Roy Childs writes, “Since the Second World War, most of the Western democracies have followed Popper’s advice about piecemeal social engineering and democratic social reform, and it has gotten them into a grand mess.
In 1956 Soros moved to New York City, where he worked on Wall Street, and started amassing his fortune. He specialized in hedge funds and currency speculation.
Soros is absolutely ruthless, amoral, and clever in his business dealings, and quickly made his fortune. By the 1980s he was well on his way to becoming the global powerhouse that he is today.
In an article Kyle-Anne Shiver wrote for “The American Thinker” she says, “Soros made his first billion in 1992 by shorting the British pound with leveraged billions in financial bets, and became known as the man who broke the Bank of England. He broke it on the backs of hard-working British citizens who immediately saw their homes severely devalued and their life savings cut drastically almost overnight.”
In 1994 Soros crowed in “The New Republic” that “the former Soviet Empire is now called the Soros Empire.” The Russia-gate scandal in 1999, which almost collapsed the Russian economy, was labeled by Rep. Jim Leach, then head of the House Banking Committee, to be “one of the greatest social robberies in human history.” The “Soros Empire” indeed.
In 1997 Soros almost destroyed the economies of Thailand and Malaysia . At the time, Malaysia’s Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohamad, called Soros “a villain, and a moron.” Thai activist Weng Tojirakarn said, “We regard George Soros as a kind of Dracula. He sucks the blood from the people.”
The website, Greek National Pride, reports, “[Soros] was part of the full-court press that dismantled Yugoslavia and caused trouble in Georgia, Ukraine and Myanmar [ Burma ]. Calling himself a philanthropist, Soros’ role is to tighten the ideological stranglehold of globalization and the New World Order while promoting his own financial gain. He is without conscience; a capitalist who functions with absolute amorality.”
France has upheld an earlier conviction against Soros, for felony insider trading. Soros was fined 2.9 million dollars.
Recently, his native Hungary fined Soros 2.2 million dollars for “illegal market manipulation.” Elizabeth Crum writes that “The Hungarian economy has been in a state of transition as the country seeks to become more financially stable and westernized. [Soros’] deliberately driving down the share price of its largest bank put Hungary’s economy into a wicked tailspin, one from which it is still trying to recover.
Here is an excerpt from an article in the Digital Journal on June 2, 2009 by Gary Jackson:
For those who don’t know who George Soros is, think Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the super villain from the James Bond movies, or if you will, a less endearing version of Mike Meyer’s “Dr Evil”. Soros is an Eastern European socialist who made billions of dollars through currency and commodities speculation.
He is credited with the serious devaluation of the British pound note back in 1992. He is said to be the man who “broke the Bank of England.” In 2002, Soros was convicted of insider trading in France, a felony, and fined $2.3 million. Recently, Soros wasquoted as being very pleased with the current economic situation in America. Could it be that he is speculating on the American dollar? What does this mean? Well, politically, George Soros is an extreme leftist.
He, of course, is a huge supporter of President Barack Obama. The way Soros works, in my opinion, is a bit nefarious – at best. Rather than be out front and advocate his socialist policies, Soros funds dozens of far-left front groups; some with innocent enough sounding names, but, based on my research, these groups promote left-leaning schemes, nonetheless. These groups and foundations support everything from open borders, to the legalization of most drugs, to abortion on demand.
George Soros’ funded “programs” also promote the liberal agenda being taught in schools. Some of Mr. Soros’ endeavors include: MoveOn.org, The Open Society Institute, USAction, Center For American Progress, Americans United For Change, and many more, including Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). CREW is the group who filed the clothes complaint against Governor Palin, and, in conjunction with Soros’ many activist organizations, as well as “friends” in the media, kept the story going well past its normal shelf life.
CREW is a shadowy group. Depending on the source, you will find that CREW was either founded in 2001 by left-wing activists Norm Eisen (an attorney) and Louis Mayberg (a prominent Democrat donor, and co-founder of the Maryland-based mutual fund management firm ProFund Advisors LLC).
My point here is that Soros is a planetary parasite. His grasp, greed, and gluttony have a global reach.
But what about America? Soros told Australia ‘s national newspaper, The Australian:
“America, as the centre of the globalised financial markets, was sucking up the savings of the world. This is now over. The game is out,” he said, adding that the time has come for “a very serious adjustment” in American’s consumption habits. He implied that he was the one with the power to bring this about.
Soros: “World financial crisis was” stimulating” and “in a way, the culmination of my life’s work.”
Obama has recently promised 10 billion of our tax dollars to Brazil, in order to give them a leg-up in expanding their offshore oil fields. Obama’s largesse towards Brazil, came shortly after his financial backer George Soros invested heavily in Brazilian oil (Petrobras).
Tait Trussel writes, “The Petrobras loan may be a windfall for Soros and Brazil, but it is a bad deal for the U.S. The American Petroleum Institute estimates that oil exploration in the U.S. could create 160,000 new, well-paying jobs, as well as $1.7 trillion in revenues to federal, state, and local governments, all while fostering greater energy security and independance.”
A blog you might want to keep an eye on is SorosWatch.com . Their mission: “This blog is dedicated to all…who have suffered due to the ruthless financiaal pursuits of…George Soros. Your stories are many and varied, but the theme is the same: the destructive power of greed without conscience. We pledge to tirelessly watch Soros wherever he goes and to print the truth in the hope that he will one day be made to stop preying upon the world’s poor, that justice will be served.”
Back to America. Soros has been actively working to destroy America from the inside out for some years now. People have been warning us. Two years ago Bill O’Reilly said on “The O’Reilly Factor” that “Soros [is] an extremist who wants open borders, a one-world foreign policy, legalized drugs, euthanasia, and on and on. This is off-the-chart dangerous…”
In 1997 Rachel Ehrrenfeld wrote, “Soros uses his philanthropy to change or more accurately deconstruct the moral values and attitudes of the Western world, and particularly of the American people. His “open society” is not about freedom; it is about license. His vision rejects the notion of ordered liberty, in favor of an PROGRESSIVE ideology of rights and entitlements.”
Perhaps the most important of these “whistle blowers” are David Horowitz and Richard Poe. Their book “The Shadow Party” outlines in detail how Soros hijacked the Democrat Party, and now owns it lock, stock, and barrel.
Soros has been packing the Democrat Party with radicals, and ousting moderate Democrats for years.
The Shadow Party became the Shadow Government, which became the Obama Administration.
DiscoverTheNetworks.org (another good source) writes, “By his [Soros’] own admission, he helped engineer coups in Slovakia, Croatia, Georgia, and Yugoslavia. When Soros targets a country for “regime change,” he begins by creating a shadow government a fully formed government-in-exile, ready to assume power when the opportunity arises. The Shadow Party he has built in America greatly resembles those he has created in other countries prior to instigating a coup.”
November 2008 edition of the German magazine “Der Spiegel,” in which Soros gives his opinion on what the next POTUS (President of the U.S.) should do after taking office. “I think we need a large stimulus package…” Soros thought that around 600 billion would be about right.
Soros also said that “I think Obama presents us a great opportunity to finally deal with global warming and energy dependence. The U.S. needs a cap and trade system with auctioning of licenses for emissions rights.”
Although Soros doesn’t (yet) own the Republican Party, like he does the Democrats, make no mistake, his tentacles are spread throughout the Republican Party as well.
Soros is a partner in the Carlyle Group where he has invested more than 100 million dollars. According to an article by “The Baltimore Chronicle’s” Alice Cherbonnier, the Carlye Group is run by “a veritable who’s who of former Republican leaders,” from CIA man Frank Carlucci, to CIA head [and ex-President] George Bush, Sr.
In late 2006, Soros bought about 2 million shares of Halliburton, Dick Cheney’s old stomping grounds.
When the Democrats and Republicans held their conventions in 2000, Soros held Shadow Party conventions in the same cities, at the same time.
Soros has dirtied both sides of the aisle, trust me. And if that weren’t bad enough, he has long held connections with the CIA.
And I mustn’t forget to mention Soros’ involvement with the MSM (Main Stream Media), the entertainment industry (e.g. he owns 2.6 million shares of Time Warner), and the various political advertising organizations he funnels millions to. In short, George Soros controls or influences most of the MSM. Little wonder they ignore the TEA PARTY, Soro’s NEMESIS.
As Matthew Vadum writes, “The liberal billionaire- turned-philanthropist has been buying-up media properties for years in order to drive home his message to the American public that they are too materialistic, too wasteful, too selfish, and too stupid to decide for themselves how to run their own lives.”
Richard Poe writes, “Soros’ private philanthropy, totaling nearly $5 billion, continues undermining America’s traditional Western values. His giving has provided funding of abortion rights, atheism, drug legalization, sex education, euthanasia, feminism, gun control, globalization, mass immigration, gay marriage and other radical experiments in social engineering.”
Some of the many NGOs (None Government Organizations) that Soros funds with his billions are: MoveOn.org , the Apollo Alliance, Media Matters for America, the TidesFoundation, the ACLU, ACORN, PDIA (Project on Death In America), La Raza, and many more. For a more complete list, with brief descriptions of the NGOs, go towww.DiscoverTheNetworks.org
Poe continues, “Through his global web of Open Society Institutes and Open Society Foundations, Soros has spent 25 years recruiting, training, indoctrinating and installing a network of loyal operatives in 50 countries, placing them in positions of influence and power in media, government, finance and academia.”
Without Soro’s money, would the Saul Alinsky’s Chicago machine still be rolling? Would SEIU, ACORN, and La Raza still be pursuing their nefarious activities? Would Big Money and lobbyists still be corrupting government? Would our college campuses still be retirement homes for 1960s radicals? Yes, yes, yes, and yes
America stands at the brink of an abyss, and that fact is directly attributable to Soros. Soros has vigorously, cleverly, and insidiously planned the ruination of America and his puppet, Barak Obama is leading the way.
The words of Patrick Henry are apropos: “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”
These days, Patrick Henry’s sentiment is more than just some quaint hyperbole from long ago it’s a slow burning, but intense, glow that fires our courage and heart.
TEA PARTY BEWARE…
Sometimes evil wilts and dies when exposed to direct sunlight. Let’s try to shine as much light as possible on this. I have suspected Obummer was a Manchurian Candidate. Maybe he is, maybe not. Soros was the original funding behind the Global Warming Hoax. For every 10 million Gore makes, Soros makes a billion. What a cleaver plan to trick us into destroying our economy with a CO2 hoax and get us to pay trillions to a select few who will control the planet.
I have spent the last couple of hours jumping about and following and reading the links embedded in the articles. It is enough to turn your stomach as the total (big picture) story unfolds.
And now this picture. You might have seen this but it makes more sense having read about George Soros.
IS THIS THE FACE OF THE TRUE DR. EVIL AND HIS PUPPET OBAMA
JUST LOOK AT PETROBRAS THAT IS THE STATE OIL GIANT THAT GEORGE SOROS INVESTED ALMOST 1BILLION$ IN THEN TWO DAYS LATER THE US UNDER OBAMAS DIRECTION GIVES PETROBRAS (PETRO BRAZIL) 2 BILLION MAKING GEORGES STOCK GO UP UP UP!!! SOUTH AMERICA HAS THE GREATEST AMOUNT OF UNTAPPED OIL IN THE WORLD…BUT WAIT DEMOCRATE WANT TO STOP USING OIL….FROM THE USA AND BUY FROM PETROBRAS SPREAD THE WEALTH AROUND WHILE WE SELL OUR OIL DRILLING RIGHTS TO THE CHINESE AND BRITISH…SOCILISM ALL IN THE NAME OF SOCIALISM!!!
George Soros blasts Fox News, Rupert Murdoch for misleading viewers
CNN, Fox Movie Channel — posted by halboedeker on February, 20 2011 11:34 AM

Glenn Beck of Fox News Channel has repeatedly accused billionaire investor George Soros of being the puppet master trying to bring down the U.S. government.
Soros answered that criticism this morning on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS.” The program repeats at 1 p.m. ET today.
“I would be amused if people saw the joke in it,” Soros told Zakaria. “Because what he [Beck] is doing, he is projecting what Fox — what Rupert Murdoch is doing, because he has a media empire that is telling the people some falsehoods and leading the government in the wrong direction. But, you know, by accusing me of doing that … it makes it rather hard to see that … he [Beck] is working for the man who is doing it.”
Zakaria charted how Soros has been portrayed in the media over the years, going from being the “ultra capitalist” who best understood markets to “this kind of left-wing iconic figure.”
Zakaria marveled: “It’s been quite a journey.”
Soros responded: “You just had the experience of speaking to the puppet master and the extreme left-wing manipulator. And you and the audience can make their own decisions.”
Beck also has accused Soros, who lost many people of the Holocaust, of helping round up Jews as a 14-year-old boy.
Soros offered this response: “Fox News makes a habit — it has imported the methods of George Orwell, you know, newspeak, where you can tell the people falsehoods and deceive them. And you wouldn’t believe that an open society and a democracy, these methods can succeed. But, actually, they did succeed. They succeeded in Germany, where the Weimar Republic collapsed and you had a Nazi regime follow it. So this is a very, very dangerous way of deceiving people. And I would like people to be aware that they are being deceived.”
He added that he hoped Americans would wake up and realize that they are being deceived.
In response to a Zakaria question, Soros weighed in on the Tea Party. “I think the people in the Tea Party are very decent people, hard-working,” Soros said. “They have been hit by a force that they — that comes from somewhere which they can’t fully understand. And they are being misled. And they are misled by people who are using it for their selfish purposes, namely to remove regulations and reduce taxation. So reduce taxation and regulation. And they are being used and deceived.”
What do you say to that?

Soros caused the 4Q’08 US financial collapse (with the help of Barney Frank and Chris Dodd). The precise timing of the global bank run – just weeks before the 2008 election – was the tip off. No doubt, Soros has more US financial blows planned for US capitalism to achieve his world-wide unity socialist plan. Is this part of his master plan? Question: whose team is tax cheat, Tim Geithner, on anyway and should we be concerned? Obama appointed Geithner, so the answer is “yes, we should be concerned”.

George Soros’ Allies Brought Down Wachovia Bank
By Gary P Jackson
In the latest episode of the growing Crime Inc. story, we learn that, Barack Obama’s puppet master, former Nazi sympathizer George Soros, is about to profit handsomely off the disaster in the gulf.
We’ve written for around a year that Obama and Soros have partnered up to manipulate the oil business for fun and profit. Last year, Obama “loaned” Brazil $10 billion tax payer dollars, which in turn went to Brazilian oil giant, Petrobas. As we all know, just three days before Obama was so generous with OUR money, Soros bought controlling interest in Petrobas, which is now his largest holding.
We’ve written extensively about this, and Sarah Palin has also called Obama out on numerous occasions. There’s a good overview that you can read here.
At the time, writing for Newsmax, Ralph Hostetter offered this:
Petrobras is exploring and developing what has been described as the “huge offshore discovery” of Brazil’s Tupi field in Santo Basin near Rio de Janero. According to reports, the site could yield as much as 1 million barrels of oil per day.
The Soros Fund Management LLC holds a stake in Petrobras in the amount of $900 million as of Dec. 31, 2009.
The Soros Fund is headed by U.S. naturalized-citizen George Soros, a multi-billionaire who describes himself simply as an investor.
George Soros’ principal investments are in oil; one in particular is Petrobras, the Brazilian-owned company. This happens to be the largest investment in the Soros portfolio at the present time.
Now that word is out that the facilities of the U.S. Export-Import Bank SA is offering guarantees for loans to Brazil’s state-owned oil company Petrobras, U.S. citizens are beginning to complain.
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, a vocal proponent of offshore drilling, says, “So why is it that during these tough times, when we have great needs at home, the Obama White House is prepared to send more than $2 billion of your hard-earned tax dollars to Brazil so that the nation’s state-owned oil company Petrobras can drill offshore and create jobs developing its own resources?”
George Soros is becoming a central figure in American politics. He is using his billions of dollars and his influence in the energy field to bring about what he identifies as a “regime change” for America, an idea he has promoted for many years. He has called for such a change since the days of George W. Bush.
Soros planned at one point to oust George W. Bush during the president’s reelection campaign of 2004. He spent $25 million in the campaign to elect John Kerry. He stated at the time, defeating President Bush “is the central focus of my life . . . a matter of life and death.” America under Bush, he said, is a danger to the world “and I am willing to put my money where my mouth is.”
To George Soros, regime change means the elimination of the present governing system, in this case, the democratic republic of the United States. That would mean there would be no political parties, no elections, but in place of the American system, he would introduce his Shadow Party.
George Soros, with the help of his brain child, Moveon.org, has created his Shadow Party which awaits his call for the regime change for America.
Soros has had considerable experience in bringing about “regime change” in Europe. In particular, he is given credit for raising of funds in 1989 for a regime change in the Czech Republic when Vaclav Havel was brought to power. He helped engineer “regime changes” in Slovakia, Croatia, Georgia and Yugoslavia.
At the present time, the U.S. dollar is under the most severe international pressure in its history. The U.S. government has exposed itself by creating stimulus packages and issuing currency amounting to trillions of dollars. This is exactly the situation that spoilers such as George Soros have been looking for.
This is a similar scenario which George Soros found in Great Britain in 1992 when he made his first billion by shorting the British pound with leveraged billions in financial bets. He became known as “the man who broke the Bank of England.” It was reported that “he broke it on the backs of hard-working British citizens who immediately saw their homes severely devalued and their life savings cut drastically in comparative worth almost overnight.”
Change has been the watchword of the Obama Administration. One would hope that the emphasis for change does not extend to such a radical movement as a regime change. A regime change would spell the end of America’s democratic republic.
George Soros is pure evil, and a direct threat to the sovereignty of the United States. He owns the Marxist-democrat party outright, and funds hundreds of groups that do their bidding, on his behalf. He is the one pulling all of the strings on Obama. He is Obama’s puppet master.
Haven’t you ever wondered why Obama and his crew are so eager to handcuff the American energy industry? Many well meaning people fall into the trap of thinking it’s because Obama cares about the environment, and wants to see “green” energy development. Nothing could be further from the truth. The only thing “green” Obama and his cronies care about are those little green pieces of paper with dead presidents on the front.
Tammy Bruce has the latest on all of this:
Obama Boss George Soros Ready To Profit From Oil Disaster
Perhaps this is why drilling in Alaska is off the table–it would actually keep America safe and strong and won’t make Obama Boss George Soros even richer than he is now.
Interestingly, it seems the more trouble we have, the better it is for Soros. Last year, Soros noted he was “having a very good crisis” having bet against the United States and profiting from her economic downturn.
Now we learn Soros is set to be one of the biggest beneficiaries of the Gulf oil catastrophe. With Obama’s ‘moratorium’ and the Obama Admin’s general hostility to drilling, it’s reported many oil companies have already looked into with Brazil regarding a move those shores. And what is Soros principally invested in right now? Petrobras, the Brazilian state oil company.
Obama’s Boss Sees Silver Lining in BP Spill
Reuters is reporting that Brazil stands to benefit from the BP oil spill catastrophe as the US moratorium makes more rigs available for other countries.
Even as an ecological catastrophe makes the future of U.S. offshore drilling less certain, Brazil is plowing ahead with a $220 billion five-year plan to tap oil fields even deeper than BP’s ill-fated Gulf well, which is still leaking crude.
It’s estimated that thirty five rigs are now sitting idle in the Gulf of Mexico. Brazil is already getting inquiries from companies wanting to move their rigs there. Brazil’s state oil company, Petrobras already produces about a fourth of the world’s deep water oil…
The shortage of rigs could help Brazil become a major oil exporter.
What an amazing stroke of good fortune for Obama’s boss, unrepentant Nazi collaborator, George Soros! Soros is also invested in offshore oil drilling in Brazil, assisted by the American taxpayers.
Soros Fund Management, LLC holds a stake in Petrobras of approximately $900 million as of December 31, 2009.
George Soros’ principal investments are in oil; one in particular is Petrobras, the Brazilian-owned company. This happens to be the largest investment in the Soros portfolio at the present time.
Soros also owns quite a lot of real estate in Brazil. Soros’ Adecoagro, which invests in renewable energy, owns or leases about 840,000 acres of farmland in Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay growing coffee, soybeans and other commodities. Royal Dutch Shell Plc and Bunge Ltd. Are also expanding into ethanol in Brazil.
When you get to boss the president around, you never have to let a good crisis go to waste.
You can read more here.
Sweetness and Light is reporting that Petrobas is working on one of the largest stock sales in history to be able to gear up, and take full advantage of the gulf disaster, and Obama’s manipulations on their behalf. You can read all about it here.
I’m not one to buy into conspiracy theories, but this is a deal that is pretty simply to follow, and figure out. Readers know we have been following Obama and Crime Inc for some time, and have written about the Greatest Swindle In Human History ©, the on going attempt to scam the world out of TENS of TRILLIONS of DOLLARS with the phony cap and trade (cap and tax) scheme, all engineered by the Obama regime, Congress, and members of Obama’s inner circle of crooked friends. You can read morehere and here.
The Obama regime is ready to use the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico to not only enrichen his pal George Soros, but to shove “climate change” legislation down America’s throat, that includes cap and tax, which will make Obama and his cronies wealthy beyond anyone’s wildest dreams.
Before Obama is allowed to do anything more, or any legislation is discussed, we must demand that a special prosecutor be appointed, and this entire affair looked into. Obama, Soros, and every member of Crime Inc, including Al Gore, Maurice Strong, and so on, need to be investigated to the fullest. These Chicago Gangland style dealings, that are going on, are simply unacceptable.
This entire bunch needs to be looking at an extended stay in a nice federal prison.
Recap: Radical funder George Soros’s $1 million gift to Media
Matters, a left-wing character assassination machine, underwrites its
campaign to stigmatize conservative ideas. For weeks Eric Boehlert of
Media Matters attacked Glenn Beck because a disturbed viewer plotted to
shoot up the offices of the left-wing Tides Foundation. The shooter,
Byron Williams, failed, but in December when a fan of Media Matters, the
late Florida school board shooter Clay Duke, wreaked havoc, Boehlert
and Media Matters remained silent.
Soros is also bankrolling a documentary that celebrates left-wing
terrorists who plotted to napalm Republicans at the 2008 GOP convention
in Minnesota. Even worse, you too are bankrolling the film through your
A trailer for the left-wing film Better This World suggests
that it depicts David Guy McKay and Bradley Neil Crowder as idealistic
activists who, according to the official blurb, “set out to prove the
strength of their political convictions to themselves and their mentor.”
In fact McKay and Crowder are convicted domestic terrorists who
manufactured instruments of death calculated to inflict maximum pain and
bodily harm on people whose political views they disagreed with.
You can be sure that if it was right-wing terrorists who were
plotting to attack the Democratic National Convention, whoever foiled
the conspiracy would be immortalized in film, literature and song as a
savior of democracy.
“If you flip the equation around and it had been a group of
conservatives threatening to use force to prevent those on the Left from
meeting, everyone would expect the government to infiltrate them and
they would also expect the FBI to stop them and charge them with
crimes,” said Brandon Darby, who helped the FBI thwart the planned
attack. (Darby’s essay on political violence appeared on Big Government
over the past weekend. Read it here.)
The movie, which is expected to be released this year, attacks Darby,
a true American hero who undermined the conspiracy by alerting the FBI.
Filmmakers Katie Galloway and Kelly Duane de la Vega twist the facts to
argue that Darby, a former revolutionary activist, manipulated McKay
and Crowder into becoming would-be mass murderers.
It’s an easily disproved lie. During sentencing, U.S. District Judge
Michael Davis went out of his way to make a specific legal finding that
McKay obstructed justice by falsely accusing Darby of inducing him to
manufacture the incendiary devices.
McKay and Crowder had made homemade riot shields and were ready to
use them in St. Paul to help demonstrators block streets near the Xcel
Energy Center. The goal was to shut down the democratic process by
preventing GOP delegates from participating in the convention. The
shields were discovered and confiscated.
During a search of a residence, police found gas masks, slingshots,
helmets, knee pads and eight Molotov cocktails consisting of bottles
filled with gasoline with attached wicks made from tampons. “They mixed
gasoline with oil so it would stick to clothing and skin and burn
longer,” Darby said.
Thanks to Darby’s cooperation with the FBI, the two aspiring bomb
throwers are now languishing in prison. McKay entered a “guilty” plea
and was sentenced in May 2009 to 48 months in prison plus three years of
supervised release for possession of an unregistered “firearm,” illegal
manufacture of a firearm and possession of a firearm with no serial
number. A week before, Crowder cut a deal with prosecutors and was
sentenced to 24 months in prison for possession of an unregistered
firearm. McKay received the stiffer sentence in part because he
fabricated the tall tale about Darby’s involvement in the plot.
Of course, it should surprise no one that Hollywood loves this kind
of story with its anti-American overtones. HBO gave a grant to the
filmmakers to produce their pro-terrorist propaganda. So did the
Soros-funded Sundance Institute. After Soros’s foundation, the Open
Society Institute (OSI), gave Sundance’s Documentary Film Program $4.6
million in 2002, it gave the institute another $5 million in 2009.
Taxpayers also underwrite Sundance’s adventures in social justice
indoctrination. According to nonprofit tax returns (known as IRS Form
990s), the Sundance Institute has taken in $11,240,081 in government
grants since 1997. It is unclear which governments made the grants
because the 990 forms lump all the grant-making governments together.
The federal government has given $1,350,000 to the institute since
2000, according to USAspending.gov. All but $5,000 of the money was from
the National Endowment for the Arts. (The $5,000 grant was from the
State Department.) It’s not clear if the $1,350,000 is part of the $11
million-plus figure for all government grants.
Upon receiving the most recent OSI grant, Sundance founder Robert
Redford obediently genuflected before Soros. “Sundance Institute has
supported documentary storytellers since its beginning,” said Redford.
“The recognition of that history by George Soros and the Open Society
Institute, and the continuation of our relationship over time, speaks to
our shared belief that culture—in this case documentary film—is having a
profound impact in shaping progressive change.”
Soros himself has acknowledged he is interested in the movies because
“[d]ocumentary films raise awareness and inspire action.” He hails
cinema for its power to manipulate audiences. OSI has been underwriting
“social justice” documentaries since 1996. In 2001 Soros let Redford’s
Sundance Institute take over management of his Soros Documentary Fund,
which has since rechristened the Soros/Sundance Documentary Fund. (See Foundation Watch, March 2008).
In 2005 Soros acquired 2.6 million shares of the huge diversified
media company Time Warner. In 2006 his companies, Soros Strategic
Partners and Dune Capital Management, paid $900 million to buy the
DreamWorks SKG film library from Viacom, a move that gave Soros the DVD
and rebroadcasting rights to films such as Saving Private Ryan (1998),
Gladiator (2000), and American Beauty (1999). As James Hirsen noted, the
transaction gives Soros “some highly desirable film rights at a time
when the marketing and distribution model is changing to video on
demand, video iPods and other forms of digital distribution.” But more
importantly, it gives Soros “a presence in Hollywood where likeminded
libs are ready, willing and able to collaborate in cinematic social
Soros is also venturing into media overseas. In 2008 Soros Fund
Management plunked down $100 million for 3% of India’s Reliance
Entertainment, a $3 billion conglomerate that aims to provide
Internet-based TV programs in India. Reliance also churns out movies and
owns movie houses, radio stations and social networking websites in the
country with one of the fastest growing economies in the world. When in
the 1980s Soros set up offices in Eastern Europe for OSI, he helped to
finance publishers, independent TV and radio outlets, and political
As writer Rondi Adamson observed, “most of the documentaries that
receive Sundance funding are highly critical of some aspect of American
life, capitalism or Western culture. The projects generally share
Soros’s worldview that America is a troubling if not sinister influence
in the world, that the War on Terror is a fraud and terrorists are
misunderstood freedom fighters, and that markets are fundamentally
The 2009 Sundance Film Festival screened the documentary Disturbing
the Universe. The recently deceased Communist historian Howard Zinn
described the movie about radical anti-American lawyer William Kunstler
as “a wonderful, inspiring film.”
Putting America in its Place
Undermining America and promoting radicalism is what Soros is all about.
Soros seems to want Communist China to become a superpower, throwing
its weight around on the world stage. Weeks before President Obama’s
visit to China a year ago the Financial Times asked Soros, “What sort of
a financial deal should Obama be seeking to strike when he travels to
China next month?” He replied:
I think this would be time because you really need to bring China
into the creation of a new world order, a financial world order. They
are kind of reluctant members of the IMF. They play along, but they
don’t make much of a contribution because it’s not their institution.
Their share is not commensurate, their voting rights are not
commensurate to their weight, so I think you need a new world order that
China has to be part of the process of creating it and they have to buy
in. [emphasis added]
In November 2010 Soros praised China effusively. “Today China has not
only a more vigorous economy, but actually a better functioning
government than the United States,” he said.
It’s all in a day’s work for George Soros. And now he’s trying to control the media in America.
He has conquered the world of finance and remains firmly on top of it. He writes bestselling books. He dominates leftist philanthropy. He co-founded the Democracy Alliance, an ultra-secretive billionaires’ club that wants to transform America into a European-style socialist state – or worse. He owns the Democratic Party. Now George Soros, who also fancies himself a philosopher, is positioning himself as a media magnate in order to continue his assault on America’s values and institutions.
Like the protagonist in the classic Orson Welles movie Citizen Kane, Soros can never have enough power. But unlike Charles Foster Kane, the haughty, imperious fictional media mogul, Soros views himself as much more than a mere leader. With a straight face he told reporters, “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” (The Independent – UK, June 3, 1993)
Although markets have helped make him a billionaire several times over, Soros has declared war on capitalism. He blames markets and something he calls “market fundamentalism”— and not the suffocating regulations and high taxes his funding of left-wing groups promotes – for the current economic slowdown. “The entire edifice of global financial markets has been erected on the false premise that markets can be left to their own devices, we must find a new paradigm and rebuild from the ground up.”
“The system we have now has actually broken down, only we haven’t quite recognized it and so you need to create a new one and this is the time to do it,” Soros told the Financial Times in 2009. In an interview with Der Spiegel the previous year Soros said European-style socialism “is exactly what we need now. I am against market fundamentalism. I think this propaganda that government involvement is always bad has been very successful – but also very harmful to our society.”
Only in the twisted messianic fantasies of this octogenarian billionaire whose demeanor is that of a James Bond villain could such phantom armies of marauding free market fundamentalists wreak havoc on America. Perhaps these were the same laissez-faire legionnaires who brought us Sarbanes-Oxley, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, government bailouts of private industry, farm subsidies, ethanol mandates, smart growth, and the disastrous Community Reinvestment Act in recent decades.
One thing’s for certain: Soros’s answers to the nation’s problems almost invariably involve more regulation and more government intervention in the marketplace. If a policy increases the power of the state and diminishes the power of the individual, Soros is for it.
Because Soros is a lightning rod for criticism, recipients of his money often lie about taking it or perform an elaborate dance of legalistic hairsplitting to conceal the fact he is funding them. For example, Paul Steiger, editor-in-chief of the left-leaning investigative journalism website Pro Publica, denied his organization accepted funding from Soros.
In criticizing an Investor’s Business Daily editorial, Steiger wrote (Dec. 24, 2009):
An unmitigated canard quoted in the editorial – one that has a goofy way of creeping into discourse from a variety of people who dislike something we have written – is that George Soros, the global billionaire, is behind our coverage. Soros has never given us a penny, and even if he had, none of our funders know in advance what we are going to write about, nor do they have any role in deciding what stories we do or don’t do.
In fact Pro Publica’s website contradicts Steiger, openly acknowledging Soros’s Open Society Foundations as a donor.
(Surprisingly, the liberal-dominated “No Labels” group founded last month to combat what it calls the “hyper-partisanship [that] is destroying our politics and paralyzing our ability to govern,” does not appear to be connected to Soros. The new 501c4 advocacy organization has a particularly vapid slogan: “Not Left. Not Right. Forward.”)
Glenn Beck, Threat to the Republic?
Not content to rest on his laurels, Soros has been buying up media properties for years in order to drive home his message to the American public that they are too materialistic, too wasteful, too selfish, and too stupid to decide for themselves how to run their own lives.
But controlling segments of the media is not enough for him. Now he’s openly funding the fake media watchdog, Media Matters for America, founded by the formerly conservative journalist David Brock. The writers at Brock’s well-funded slander shop assiduously monitor Rush Limbaugh’s broadcasts, seethe over Andrew Breitbart’s latest expose, turn purple over Bill O’Reilly’s latest on-air editorial, and analyze every last semi-colon in Charles Krauthammer’s latest column in search of that rarest of unicorns, the beast known as “conservative misinformation.”
Soros’s donation to Media Matters suggests that intimidating journalists who dare to question his vision is now a top priority for Soros. Come down on the wrong side of an issue and risk being labeled ignorant or evil by the smear website. Say that tax cuts lead to economic prosperity, and you’re attacked. Criticize illegal immigration, and you’re attacked. Say affirmative action is racist and discriminatory, and you’re attacked.
“They are vicious. They only understand one thing: attack, attack, attack,” said GOP pollster Frank Luntz. David Folkenflik, media reporter for liberal National Public Radio, was similarly unimpressed by Media Matters. “They’re looking at every dangling participle, every dependent clause, every semicolon, every quotation to see if there’s some way it unfairly frames a cause, a party, a candidate that they may have some feelings for.”
Media Matters relies heavily on personal attacks, rather than substantive or fact-based arguments. It settles scores. Large swaths of the site are dedicated to skewering specific media personalities such as Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, G. Gordon Liddy and Brock’s former friend Laura Ingraham. What results is not even-handed analysis of what they say or write, but personal scrutiny, including minute parsing and microscopic analysis of every comment and its presumed meaning.
Today, Media Matters is one of the loudest voices in the liberal media echo chamber as it feeds hard-line left-wing media critiques to liberal blogs, sympathetic and lazy reporters, and pundits in an attempt to silence non-compliant journalists and muscle right-leaning media figures out of the public debate entirely.
Even before the donation, Soros and Brock already worked closely together. Before the last presidential election they collaborated on a project called Progressive Media USA that vowed to spend $40 million trashing GOP presidential candidate John McCain. Media Matters exists to help protect Democrats and harm Republicans. Even the New York Times describes the organization as “highly partisan.”
As if on cue, Media Matters, and now Soros, believe Fox News is the greatest threat to the American republic. Both Soros and Brock had always denied that the billionaire funded Media Matters—and there was no definitive evidence of such a connection— but recently Soros proclaimed himself a new donor to the organization. Said Soros
Despite repeated assertions to the contrary by various Fox News commentators, I have not to date been a funder of Media Matters. However, in view of recent evidence suggesting that the incendiary rhetoric of Fox News hosts may incite violence, I have now decided to support the organization. Media Matters is one of the few groups that attempts to hold Fox News accountable for the false and misleading information they so often broadcast. I am supporting Media Matters in an effort to more widely publicize the challenge Fox News poses to civil and informed discourse in our democracy.
In accepting a cool million from Soros, Brock promptly denounced Fox News host Glenn Beck as Public Enemy Number One.
From the moment in early 2009 that Roger Ailes enlisted Glenn Beck to the Fox News Channel’s new agenda – a battle to overturn the 2008 election results that Ailes likened to the “The Alamo” – Fox has transformed itself into a 24-7 GOP attack machine, dividing Americans through fear-mongering and falsehoods and undermining the legitimacy of our government for partisan political ends. Worse still, in recent months, Fox has allowed Glenn Beck’s show to become an out-of-control vehicle for the potential incitement of domestic terrorism. No American should be quiet about these developments – the degradation of our media and the reckless endangerment of innocent lives. George Soros, a philanthropist of the highest integrity, unfortunately knows first-hand what it’s like to be grotesquely caricatured and flatly lied about on Fox. Media Matters is grateful that he has decided to lend his voice and support our goal of greater journalistic accuracy and accountability. We are especially pleased that in this moment of hidden right-wing billionaire money corrupting our democracy, Mr. Soros, upon deciding to support our efforts, quickly and transparently has made that support public.
Only in the topsy-turvy world that Brock and other leftists occupy could holding governments accountable be considered antisocial behavior. Whatever happened to the journalists’ mantra that it was their purpose to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable? What about speaking truth to power?
(Continued from yesterday)
Recap: Radical philanthropist George Soros gave $1 million to Media Matters for America, a well-funded slander shop that roots out “conservative misinformation.” It’s all part of his campaign to suppress conservative ideas that stand in the way of pushing America even farther to the left.
The left has been hyperventilating about Beck ever since he moved from CNN to Fox News in early 2009 and quickly became the Obama administration’s most vociferous high-profile critic. In particular, liberals could not abide Beck righteously fulminating against the shadowy Tides Foundation, a pass-through entity that allows wealthy individuals to give to radical causes anonymously.
Eric Boehlert, a so-called senior fellow at Media Matters, seized an opportunity when a deranged would-be shooter named Byron Williams jumped into the headlines last year. After a shootout with the California Highway Patrol, Williams said he had been on his way to shoot up the San Francisco offices of Tides in hopes of sparking a revolution. Williams was never actually much of a threat to Tides. When police pulled him over on a Sunday when the Tides offices were closed, the inept insurrectionist was drunk.
Media Matters argued that Beck had blood on his hands because Williams claimed Beck’s program was one of his favorite TV shows. Boehlert blogged that Beck “has routinely smeared the low-profile entity [i.e. Tides] for being staffed by ‘thugs’ and ‘bullies’ and involved in ‘the nasty of the nastiest,’ like indoctrinating schoolchildren and creating a ‘mass organization to seize power.’” Williams “wasn’t able to open fire inside the offices of the Tides Foundation, an organization ‘nobody knew’ about until Glenn Beck started targeting it.”
Aside from the rhetorical flourishes, Beck had provided a more or less accurate picture of the Tides Foundation, its sister groups, and many of its grant recipients.
As Trevor Loudon wrote in the October 2010 Foundation Watch, “The Tides Foundation and Tides Center are the radical left’s best kept secret. Together they provide tens of millions of dollars annually to some of the most extreme, destructive charities in America. Their money has gone to an assortment of questionable groups including ACORN, Media Matters for America, and the Center for Constitutional Rights.” (The Center was profiled in the September 2006 Organization Trends.)
According to David Horowitz’s online encyclopedia of the left, DiscoverTheNetworks.org, the Tides family of foundations has also funded the violent anarchist group known as the Ruckus Society, United for Peace and Justice (a group headed by pro-Castro activist Leslie Cagan), the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), three of whose executives have been indicted for terrorism-related activities, and the National Lawyers Guild.
NLG “began as a Communist front organization and remains proud of its lineage,” the encyclopedia notes. At a 2003 NLG convention Lynne Stewart said in a keynote address: “And modern heroes, dare I mention? Ho and Mao and Lenin, Fidel and Nelson Mandela and John Brown, Ché Guevara … Our quests like theirs are to shake the very foundations of the continents.” Stewart was later convicted of providing “material support” to her client sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, whose terrorist group bombed the World Trade Center in 1993, killing six people and injuring upwards of a thousand.
Stewart, incidentally, has made no secret of her views. “I don’t believe in anarchist violence but in directed violence,” the New York Times quoted her saying in 1995. “That would be violence directed at the institutions which perpetuate capitalism, racism, sexism, and at the people who are the appointed guardians of those institutions and accompanied by popular support.”
For expressing his informed opinion about Tides, Beck was described by Boehlert as something approaching a murderer. As John Sexton notes after the Byron Williams incident Boehlert viciously attacked Beck for weeks, logic and truth be damned:
Eric Boehlert, Senior Fellow at Media Matters, made much of the Beck connection saying that Beck had come close to having a “body count.” In addition to Media Matters, Boehlert’s article was picked up by major liberal sites including Current TV, Huff Post, Salon, Alternet and Truthout. But it was distributed much more widely by blogs. A Google search for the title of his piece, in quotes, yields 57,000 results. The left ate it up like cotton candy.
And Boehlert inspired others in the media to follow his lead. Just a few days after his piece made the rounds, Dana Milbank at the Washington Post (who was about to publish a book on Beck which relied heavily on Media Matters) did what amounted to a sloppy rewrite of Boehlert’s piece.
And that was really just the beginning. Over succeeding weeks, Media Matters put up dozens of stories (1,600 search results) about Byron Williams, all of them mentioning Glenn Beck. Boehlert himself returned to the topic several months later using the same extended network of liberal sites. He once again blamed the shootings on Beck.
Is turnabout fair play? In December a crazed shooter cited Media Matters as one of his inspirations.
Clay Duke, the late Florida school board shooter (who killed himself Dec. 14 after threatening officials during a school board meeting), listed Media Matters on his Facebook page as one of his favorite websites. Therefore, according to Boehlert’s reasoning, Media Matters should share some of the blame for Duke’s violent acts.
Did Boehlert’s rants push Clay Duke to act? According to Boehlert’s own logic, Media Matters has blood on its hands. Stretch Boehlert’s bizarre reasoning a little further and George Soros becomes an accomplice after the fact for funding Media Matters.
That’s crazy but it’s the kind of tortured logic that passes for thinking at Media Matters.
The Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, announced the addition of five members to its Board of Directors. The new members — Naomi Aberly, Joanne Egerman, Irma Esparza, Minyon Moore, and Michael Vachon

WMR has learned from Asian intelligence sources that there is a strong belief in some Asian countries, particularly China and Thailand, that the website Wikileaks, which purports to publish classified and sensitive documents while guaranteeing anonymity to the providers, is linked to U.S. cyber-warfare and computer espionage operations, as well as to Mossad’s own cyber-warfare activities.
Wikileaks claims to have decrypted video footage of a U.S. Predator air strike on civilians in Afghanistan and that covert U.S. State Department agents followed Wikileaks’s editor from Iceland to Norway in a surveillance operation conducted jointly by the United States and Iceland. Iceland’s financially-strapped government recently announced a policy of becoming a haven for websites that fear political oppression and censorship in their home countries. However, in the case of Wikileaks, countries like China and Thailand are suspicious of the websites’ actual “ownership”.’
