When a single multi-billionaire controls not only America’s Radio Free Europe/Radio Free Asia/Radio Liberty operations in Munich and Prague and he virtually owns and operates such non-profit non-governmental organizations like Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, national governments targeted by such a menace should take notice and respond aggressively. George Soros will continue to dominate the foreign policy of a Hillary Clinton administration. Soros recently donated $8 million to boost her presidential campaign.
Nation-states that have been and will continue to be targeted by Soros’s “soft power,” which has always received more than a “wink and a nod” from the US Central Intelligence Agency, which bequeathed to him operations of the Cold War propaganda radio stations after the end of the Cold War, should establish “Counter-Soros Operations” teams, or “CSOs,” within foreign ministries or information services to keep track of Soros’s huge propaganda empire and its own destabilization operations.
Many nations have information ministries that serve to disseminate their own views on various subjects and events—the generally accepted term being “propaganda.” However, Soros’s operations are so intricately woven into the fabric of so many national governments, international organizations, NGOs, political parties, universities, media outlets, and labor and social movements, it actually takes a full-time effort to track these entities and their activities. Soros operatives have even penetrated Wikipedia in its English and various other language formats to spread disinformation and one-sided propaganda.
There is clearly a requirement for a restricted access interactive database for national governments agreeing to contribute intelligence on Soros and all his related and linked activities to share in its fruits. There is little doubt that Soros takes much of his marching orders from the US Central Intelligence Agency—with which he has enjoyed a long association—and the influence operations elements of the US State Department and National Security Council. All of Soros’s interwoven links through his varied business, intelligence, and social networks would be a main focus of a Counter-Soros Operation, whether a national undertaking or a cooperative measure taken by interested governments.
The leaked US State Department classified cables provides examples of how Soros’s operations are part and parcel of the US foreign policy and intelligence apparatuses. Many are unaware that before George Soros became so involved with crafting US foreign policy, his older brother Paul Soros was involved in fronting for port facility projects around the world that were clearly in the interest of senior US officials, most notably, Henry Kissinger. Kissinger served as secretary of state and national security adviser, and for a time held both posts simultaneously, during the Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford administrations.
Declassified US State Department cables show that Paul Soros’s company, Soros Associates Consulting Engineers, was negotiating a new international airport deal—Aero Isla—with the Argentine government on August 9, 1974, the day Nixon resigned from office and when Kissinger took full command of American intelligence operations and foreign policy. Although Argentina’s president was Isabel Peron, the civilian successor to the previous military junta regime, the military complex still wielded tremendous control over the nation’s affairs, including control of seaport operations.
In 1976, the State Department, still commanded by Kissinger, helped arrange a deal for Paul Soros to bid on a Libyan port project. As Kissinger stated in a cable to the US embassy in Tripoli, ”No US company has won major prime contract outside of Libya’s hydrocarbon sector since 1969.” It was in 1969 that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi overthrew the corrupt king and established the “people’s” republic. Ironically, George Soros was involved in fostering the “Arab Spring” revolution that ultimately led to Gaddafi’s overthrow and assassination, celebrated by Mrs Clinton with the response: ”We came, we saw, he died,” followed by her trademark cackling and sociopathic laughter.
Any Counter-Soros Operation must take into account the close links between Soros’s Open Society Institute/Foundation and quasi-official entities and NGOs, those based in the United States and abroad. Soros operations represent a multi-headed hydra with tentacles extending into the United Nations, the European Union, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, the International Criminal Court, the Munich Security and Bilderberg conferences, Refugees International; the New School for Social Research in New York; the World Economic Forum at Davos; and private foundations like the Ford, Rockefeller, and Carnegie Foundations and the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung in Germany; and even the Eurovision contest.
Soros operations around the world must come under even closer scrutiny if Mrs Clinton is elected the next US president. As of February 2016, Soros donated $6 million to Clinton’s super-Political Action Committee (Super PAC) called Priorities USA Action. Under a Clinton administration, Soros will yield even greater power over American foreign policy than he did during the Barack Obama administration.
Soros closely coordinates his destabilization efforts with the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), both ciphers for the CIA. Soros pretends to combat the right-wing and conservative elements around the world by financing leftist and “social democratic” parties and movements. This merely a clever smokescreen which is engineered not to promote the “left” but to control it. The long-serving president of the CIA-linked NED, Carl Gershman, began his anti-Communist activities on behalf of the CIA as the executive director for Social Democrats USA (SDUSA), an ostensibly left-of-center party. However, SDUSA was a front for the CIA to control moderate leftists in order to derail the influence of Marxists and Communists in the Democratic Party and among the labor unions. The same Soros tactic was used to promote the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC) that endorsed pro-business and neoconservative and neo-liberal Democratic politicians like Bill and Hillary Clinton at the expense of pro-labor and anti-Wall Street Democratic politicians. Today, this Soros contrivance is known as the Third Way.
Soros has managed to infiltrate and neutralize a number of leftist political parties around the world and particularly those in Europe that have questioned the framework and future of the European Union. The governing SYRIZA party of Greece, Podemos in Spain, and Five Star in Italy have all been infiltrated by Soros operatives, now known as “Sorosites” (akin to “parasites”), who, like their collegial Trotskyist counterparts from the last century, are only interested in circumventing leftist movements not advancing their basic doctrines. SYRIZA, which ran on a platform of rejecting EU-dictated austerity measures, quickly decided to warmly embrace them. Podemos in Spain will do the same if it joins a future government. Soros, like a fatal cancer, infiltrates a body politic, infects it, and ultimately kills it.
The muscle behind the “Bulldozer Revolution” that overthrew Serbian president Slobodan Milosevic, OTPOR! and the Center for Applied Nonviolent Action and Strategies (CANVAS), as well as their leader Srdja Popovic, a so-called pro-democracy agitator, were all unmasked as US intelligence assets. Their textbook themed revolution operations were later fully utilized on the streets of Tbilisi, Kiev, Chisinau, Moscow, Skopje, Bucharest, Sofia, Budapest, Podgorica, and farther afield in Damascus, Benghazi, Tunis, Cairo, Bangkok, Beirut, Hong Kong, Caracas, Quito, and Tehran.
To combat Soros International and its American and Western European and Israeli sponsors, the answer is to create units that will 1) identify the threats; 2) employ active measures, including raids on Soros-financed offices and arrests of troublemaking ringleaders; 3) widely publicize the nature of the Soros operations and the organizations and individuals who are behind them; 4) permanently neutralize the threats under the guise of national security, anti-racketeering and anti-money laundering laws currently on the books, and conspiracy to commit street violence. Any measures that are less daunting will turn out to be quite useless.
