JERUSALEM – Philanthropist billionaire George Soros has funded opposition
organizations in Egypt and throughout the Middle East, where anti-regime chaos
has already toppled the pro-Western leader of Tunisia and is threatening the
rule of President Hosni Mubarak, a key U.S. ally.
Mohamed ElBaradei, one of the main opposition leaders in Egypt, has also sat
on the board of an international “crisis management” group alongside Soros and
other personalities who champion dialogue with Hamas, a violent offshoot of the
Muslim Brotherhood.
The Brotherhood, which seeks to spread Islam around the world in part by
first creating an Islamic caliphate in Egypt, now backs ElBaradai, who has
defended the group in the news media the last few weeks.
ElBaradei suspended his board membership in the International Crisis Group,
or ICG last week, after he returned to Egypt to lead the anti-Mubarak protests.
Soros is one of eight members of the ICG executive committee.
U.S. board members include Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was national security
adviser to Jimmy Carter; Samuel Berger, who was Bill Clinton’s national security
adviser; and retired U.S. ambassador Thomas Pickering, who made headlines in
2009 after meeting with Hamas leaders and calling for the U.S. to open ties to
the Islamist group.
Another ICG member is Robert Malley, a former adviser to Obama during the
2008 presidential campaign who resigned after it was exposed he had communicated
with Hamas. WND
first reported
Malley had long petitioned for dialogue with Hamas.
The ICG defines itself as an “independent, non-profit, multinational
organization, with 100 staff members on five continents, working through
field-based analysis and high-level advocacy to prevent and resolve deadly
conflict.”
Radio talk show host Michael Savage spent his entire show Friday discussing
the ICG’s ties to the current Islamic uprising in Egypt. Savage
also wrote a 13-page paper
outlining Obama’s links to the Egypt chaos.
(Story continues below)
Soros also has other ties to opposition groups in the Middle East.
His Open Society Institute’s Middle East and North Africa Initiative has
provided numerous grants to a wide range of projects that promote so-called
democratic issues across the region, including in Egypt, where the Muslim
Brotherhood stands to gain from any future election.
Soros’ Open Society also funded the main opposition voice in Tunisia, Radio
Kalima, which championed the riots there that led to the ouster of President
Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.
In September, Soros’ group was looking to expand its operations in Egypt by
hiring a new project manager for its Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights,
which is run in partnership with the Open Society Justice Initiative. The group
is seeking to develop a national network of legal empowerment actors for
referral of public-interest law cases. Such organizations in the past have
helped represent Muslim Brotherhood leaders seeking election or more authority
in the country.
Soros himself on Friday made public statements in support of the protests in
Egypt, which the Mubarak government has warned will result in the rise of the
Muslim Brotherhood in the country.
In a Washington Post editorial entitled, “Why Obama Has to Get Egypt Right,”
Soros recognized that if free elections were held in Egypt, “the Brotherhood is
bound to emerge as a major political force, though it is far from assured of a
majority.”
He stated the U.S. has “much to gain by moving out in front and siding with
the public demand for dignity and democracy” in Egypt.
He claimed the “Muslim Brotherhood’s cooperation with Mohamed ElBaradei … is
a hopeful sign that it intends to play a constructive role in a democratic
political system.”
Soros did not mention his ties to ElBaradei.
Soros did, however, single out Israel as “the main stumbling block” in paving
the way toward transition in the Middle East.
“In reality, Israel has as much to gain from the spread of democracy in the
Middle East as the United States has. But Israel is unlikely to recognize its
own best interests because the change is too sudden and carries too many risks,”
he wrote.
The information comes as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton today tentatively
welcomed Muslim Brotherhood involvement in the next Egyptian elections, saying
Washington would “wait and see” how talks develop.
“Today we learned the Muslim Brotherhood decided to participate, which
suggests they at least are now involved in the dialogue that we have
encouraged,” Clinton told National Public Radio from Germany.
“We’re going to wait and see how this develops, but we’ve been very clear
about what we expect.”
“The Egyptian people are looking for an orderly transition that can lead to
free and fair elections. That is what the United States has consistently
supported,” said Clinton.
“The people themselves, and leaders of various groups … will ultimately
determine if it is or not meeting their needs.”
She added: “I want to make very clear we have set forth the principles we
support. We are adamant about no violence.
“We want to see peaceful protests that are, so far anyway, embodying the
aspirations that are in our view very legitimate.
“And we want to see an orderly, expeditious transition.”

The Media Excuse Obama’s Power Grab

The Media Excuse Obama’s Power Grab

January 5th, 2011

Cliff Kincaid, Accuracy In Media

Juliet Eilperin of The Washington Post reported late last month that “the Obama administration is prepared to push its environmental agenda through regulation where it has failed on Capitol Hill.” There was no hint that this approach is illegal or unconstitutional. The account simply assumes that the Obama Administration can do what it wants, no matter what Congress or the law says.

This kind of matter-of-fact reporting about lawlessness by the federal government is typical of the decline, if not death, of adversary journalism in the nation’s capital.

The EPA’s actions seem to reflect the advice contained in the Soros-funded Center for American Progress report, “The Power of the President. Recommendations to Advance Progressive Change.”

The problem for the administration is that the new House of Representatives is going to be controlled by Republicans who have pledged fidelity to the Constitution. Rep. Fred Upton, incoming chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, declared, “We will not allow the administration to regulate what they have been unable to legislate—this Christmas surprise is nothing short of a backdoor attempt to implement their failed job-killing cap-and-trade scheme.”

The lawless tone has been set by Obama himself, who says that the admission of open homosexuals into the military must be done “swiftly.” That is not what the law says.

The Agenda Revealed: How Obama Will Rule by Executive Order in 2011

The Agenda Revealed: How Obama Will Rule by Executive Order in 2011

November 22nd, 2010

Ben Johnson, FloydReports.com

Late last month, a reporter asked the head of the Office of Public Engagement Valerie Jarrett what she would tell her close friend Barack Obama about the American uprising against his aggressive liberalism. She replied,   “To stay the course and to know that it will get better.” Those were   not idle words of comfort; they were marching orders. The president told the New York Times he runs every decision by Jarrett, and she has admitted to Vogue magazine, “I kind of know what makes [both Obamas] who they are.” When she speaks, Obama listens.

The   day after the election, as pundits forecast how he would compromise   with the Republican House, Barack Obama revealed that he planned to   continue moving this country to the Left. As though he were invincibly   ignorant to the will of the people, Obama told Democratic volunteers on a conference call, “We’ve just got to work harder to deliver the change the American people want.”

Last   week, the Center for American Progress (CAP), which received   significant seed money from George Soros, released a 47-page paper   illustrating how he could do that: by ruling through executive order, as   this author reported he would. Some of their proposals include  blocking  legislation passed by Congress, advancing the Cloward-Piven  Strategy,  and levying a new fee on foreign oil. Now, Soros is  threatening to dry  up the cash flow if Obama does not comply. Obama  appears poised to  continue shoving the big government liberalism  Americans repudiated this  month down their collective throat through  executive action.

Soros Group Wants Obama to Rule by Executive Order Order

Soros Group Wants Obama to Rule by Executive Order

November 9th, 2010

Aaron Klein, WorldNetDaily

It was progressives who won the mid-term elections, particularly incumbents in a socialist-founded congressional  caucus that emerged from last week’s ballots virtually unscathed,  boasted an article published by the George Soros-funded Institute for  Policy Studies, a Marxist-oriented think-tank in Washington, D.C.

The article recommends that President Obama govern from executive order to push through a progressive agenda.

“Progressives won in the 2010 mid-term elections,” wrote Karen  Dolan, a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies, or IPS, and  director of the Cities for Progress and Cities for Peace projects based  at the radical organization.

“The Congressional Progressive Caucus, the largest caucus in the  House Democratic Caucus at over 80 members, emerged virtually unscathed,  losing only three members,” she wrote, in the piece published on the IPS website.

“By contrast, the conservative Blue Dog Democratic caucus was  more than sliced in half from 54 members to only 26. Further, of the 34  conservative Dems who voted against Obama’s Healthcare Reform, a mere 12  won re-election,” she wrote.

Dolan declared that “our work is now finally beginning.”

“The veil of a happy Democratic governing majority is finally  lifted. We didn’t have it then; We don’t have it now. But what we do  have now is a more solidly progressive bunch of Dems in Congress and a  president presumably less encumbered by the false illusion that playing  nice will get him a date with the other team.”

She went on to recommend that progressives “throw our support unabashedly behind the Congressional  Progressive Caucus, and let’s push Obama to finally do the right thing  through as many Executive Orders as we can present to him.”

Who Is George Soros?

Who Is George Soros?

This is a necessary read.  He brought the market down in 2 days.

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.

“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.” ­ He killed and robbed his own Jewish people.

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).

György Schwartz, better known to the world as George Soros, was born August 12, 1930 in Hungary .  Soros’ father, Tivadar, was a fervent practitioner of the Esperanto­a 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 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.

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 political 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 financial 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 news sources reported 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 Ehrenfeld 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 a 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 Democratic Party, and now owns it lock, stock, and barrel.

Soros has been packing the Democratic 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.

In 2008, Soros donated $5,000,000,000 to the Democratic National Committee, DNC, to insure Obama’s win and wins for many other Alinsky trained Radical Rules Anti-American Socialist. George has been contributing a $ billion plus to the DNC since Clinton came on the scene.

 

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 influence 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 Tides Foundation, 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 to 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?

 

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.
