June 1-2, 2008 -- UPDATED 1X -- George Soros and controlling the message from the Left

Multi-billionaire funder of "progressive" causes, George Soros, likes the message from the progressive Left, as long as he can control it. WMR has recently discovered that a number of journalists funded by Soros have practiced a form of journalism that can only be described as smothering stories to ensure they do not extend beyond that which is deemed permissible by Soros and his globalist-oriented denizens.
What irks Soros and his bought-and-paid for journalists in the mainstream and "alternative" media is WMR's relentless investigation of the Russian-Israeli-neocon criminal syndicate and its pervasiveness in many of the political scandals in the United States and abroad. Whether it is the attacks of 9/11, the stolen U.S. presidential election of 2004, the dirty money surrounding jailed GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff, the financial strings that dangle from John McCain to the Rothschilds and the hedge funds contrivances, the downfall of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, the political prosecution of Alabama Governor Don Siegelman, or the profiteering from the Iraq war and occupation, the Russian-Israel mob syndicate appears over and over again.
Soros' hired journalist guns were apparently quite incensed over WMR's reportage on a fundraiser held in London for John McCain by Lord Jacob and Nathaniel Rothschild. WMR cited the fundraiser as a violation of U.S. election laws. The Rothschilds were not happy with the spotlight and neither was Soros and his affiliates, all of whom provide a convenient nexus between some so-called "progressives" and the meeting rooms of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the Davos crowd, and the Bilderberg organization. Soros has been a director of the CFR Small world.
What Soros has managed to accomplish is permit the progressive Left a lot of wiggle room, as long as it does not target his favorite international financial constructs, including the Rothschild family interests and the cause of the Russian oligarchic tycoons, who after looting the Soviet and Russian Treasuries, now plan for the overthrow of the Russian government from comfortable exile in Britain, Israel, Ukraine, and the United States. The exiled Russian oligarchs have established an "iron alliance" with the neo-cons in Washington and New York, as well as Soros' Open Society Foundation and Institute, to help Eastern European and Central Asian former Communist countries to transform themselves into "democracies." In reality, what Soros and his friends have accomplished is to transform nations like Poland, the Czech Republic, the Baltic states, Georgia, Ukraine, and others into vassal states of NATO, the World Bank, and predatory vultures like the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers, the billionaire investors in the Carlyle Group, and subservient politicians ranging from Tony Blair and John Major to the Bushes, Nicolas Sarkozy, Stephen Harper, and Angela Merkel. In fact, Soros is an investor in the Carlyle Group. Small world.
Working hand-in-glove with the neo-con "perception management" firms in Washington, DC, Soros funded the neocons' favorite form of upheaval -- the "themed revolution" -- including, the Rose Revolution in Georgia, the Orange Revolution in Ukraine, and the Tulip Revolution in Kyrgyzstan. These revolutions resulted in regimes coming to power that gave aid and comfort to exiled Russian-Israeli oligarchs targeting the Kremlin, favored membership in NATO or the hosting of American military bases, and unbridled privatization of state-owned enterprises at the expense of the people.
Soros and his global fraternity of money-hungry speculators are now anxiously licking their chops at the prospect of further privatization of America's public commons: public highways, bridges, turnpikes, water utilities, and other public infrastructure assets. Who has their gaze on the prospect of turning America's public and toll roads over to private interests? The Russian-Israeli mobsters who specialize in automatic debiting systems pioneered in their gambling dens and casinos in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, and Native American reservations across the country. Money grabbing and money laundering united through technology.
Soros made his fortune in financial speculation that resulted in the devaluation of the British pound, the Malaysian ringgit, the Thai baht, and other national currencies. Thais still recall that Soros' speculation on the Thai currency resulted in that nation's economic collapse, a misdeed that was repeated in the economies of the other "Asian Tigers," up and coming economies that were ruined by Soros and his particularly detestable brand of capitalism. Soros' fingerprints could also be found on the collapse of economies in Latin America, Russia, and Africa. The rise of Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, the Kirchners in Argentina, Morales in Bolivia, Correa in Ecuador, Lugo in Paraguay and other progressive leftists was in reaction to the vulture capitalism practiced on the continent by Soros and his gang of global bankers and billionaire speculators.
Then-Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamed had the following to say about Soros after he was warned that his criticisms of the hedge fund capitalist threatened disinvestment from Malaysia by the international banking brigands, "He [Soros] has wiped out billions of dollars from our economy, and if we're going to sit by and say nothing in the hope that it will not deter investors, then we're going to pay a very high price for those investments."
Soros responded by calling for the ouster of Mohamed in a speech at Washington's Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies in December 1998. Among the senior faculty present was none other than Dean and Professor of International Relations Paul Wolfowitz who had already called for "regime change" in Iraq as a signatory to the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) call for Saddam Hussein's overthrow by military force. Small world.
Soros has been generous with his money, however, that money has come with strings attached, whether the recipients are the pro-Hillary Clinton Center for American Progress, MoveOn.org, or America Coming Together. Don't be a Democratic politician considered out-of-the-mainstream and, therefore, uncontrollable by Soros and his pals, and hope to be on the invite list for "progressive Democratic" gabfests and rallies -- former Georgia Representative Cynthia McKinney and former Senator Mike Gravel can attest to that political fact of life.
There is one person who owes his business survival to Soros. In 1986, after George W. Bush's oil company Spectrum 7 went belly-up, Harken Energy bought it. Harken was partly owned by Soros. An earlier investor in Spectrum 7's predecessor, Arbusto Energy, was Salem Bin Laden, older brother of Osama Bin Laden. Small world.
The globalists used contrivances like the International Crisis Group (ICG) to interfere in the domestic affairs of other countries. The ICG maintains offices in Pristina, the capital of breakaway Serbian province Kosovo; Islamabad; Belgrade, Sarajevo; Pretoria; Nairobi; Kabul; Osh; and Tbilisi -- either the ICG is present in these cities to end unrest or promote it. Among the U.S. board members of the ICG are neocon extraordinaire Kenneth Adelman; Bill Clinton's deep pocketed donor Frank Giustra of Canada; and Hillary Clinton's favorite general Wesley Clark. Also on the board is George Soros. Small world.
Soros can dispatch as many agents of disinformation and misinformation as his deep pockets can afford. WMR will continue to investigate the important matters that Soros and his chums would rather people just ignore.
UPDATE 1: Right on cue, Soros-funded MoveOn.org said on May 31 that former Bush White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan should donate all proceeds from his tell-all book to veterans of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. MoveOn.org does not say anything about General Wesley Clark donating his book proceeds to the victims of his deadly bombardment of Belgrade. McClellan will never be quite as taken care of by Soros' pals as has been Clark. Just another example of Soros controlling the message.
