How Soros and his friends are forestalling popular uprisings by controlling them
From sources inside the non-governmental organization (NGO) community, WMR has been informed that George Soros’s “themed revolution” operations are now on the streets in America. Hoping to steer and influence popular outrage over President Obama’s and the GOP’s bailout of Wall Street billionaires and the steady whittling away of government services, including Social Security, Medicare, and the Postal Service, the Soros-funded “democracy” operations are working hand-in-glove with the CIA-influenced National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and its Republican and Democratic subsidiaries, as well as Democratic Party political operatives. Also funding the “democracy” operations is the CIA-funded U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
The Soros operatives, well-experienced from similar operations in eastern Europe and the Arab world, are behind the scenes sponsoring and steering, for their own purposes, “day of rage”-style street demonstrations being carried out on Wall Street in New York City and a planned October 6 “Tahrir Square”-style demonstration planned for Freedom Square in downtown Washington, DC. Many of the groups taking part in the demonstrations are unaware of the Soros and CIA money, filtered through the NED and its affiliates, designed to influence the messages from the demonstrations.
In addition to the American “controlled” street demonstrations, which are being organized through social media like Facebook and Twitter, the Israeli “social revolution,” which has seen hundreds of thousands of Jewish and Arab Israelis take to the streets in Tel Aviv, Haifa, Beersheba, and other cities, is also being infiltrated by Soros operatives, according to knowledgeable sources in Israel.
The “themed” social revolutions, hallmarks of Soros’s Open Society Institute (OSI)/Open Society Foundation (OSF) “democracy engineering” activities in Ukraine, Moldova, Kyrgyzstan, Georgia, Belarus, Serbia, Iran, Lebanon, Tunisia, Egypt, Syria, and Libya, involve groups like Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg’s “Democracy Corps,” the firm Greenberg, Quinlan, and Rosner (GQR), and Greenberg, Carville, and Shrum (GCS), all linked to the NED-funded National Democratic Institute (NDI). NDI’s Republican counterpart, the International Republican Institute (IRI), has also been instrumental in providing assistance to conservative opposition forces in Nicaragua, Venezuela, Bolivia, and other nations, as well as the Georgian government of Mikheil Saakashvili, in addition to Afghanistan, Belarus, Bolivia, Burma, Cambodia, China, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Egypt, Guatemala, Honduras, Iraq, Jordan, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mexico, Moldova, Mongolia, Nicaragua, Nigeria, North Korea, Oman, Pakistan, Peru, Russian Federation, Serbia, Somaliland, South Africa, South Sudan, Thailand, Timor-Leste, Tunisia, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, Venezuela, “West Bank and Gaza,” and Zimbabwe. Manufactured elections, such as the GOP’s alleged 2004 victory in Ohio on behalf of the Bush-Cheney ticket in 2004 has been, according to Republican whistleblower sources, implemented on behalf of Saakashvili in Georgia and Nicolas Sarkozy in France.
A purview of GQR’s client list provides an important clue as to the far-reaching targets for Soros’s and the NED’s “democracy engineering” activities: Albania, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Colombia, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Georgia, Germany, Haiti, Honduras, Hungary, Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Moldova, Nepal, Pakistan, Peru, Romania, South Africa, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom. In addition to the aforementioned nations, the NDI is also involved with democracy and election engineering in Afghanistan, Algeria, Angola, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Burma (where Soros’s OSI and other affiliates is heavily involved), Cambodia, China, Colombia, Cote d’Ivoire, Cuba, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ecuador, Egypt, Guatemala, Guinea, Guyana, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Iran, Jamaica, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Kosovo, Kuwait, Lebanon, Liberia, Macedonia, Malaysia, Mali, Mauritania, Mexico, Montenegro, Morocco, Nicaragua, Niger, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Paraguay, Philippines, Qatar, Russian Federation, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Somalia, South Sudan, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Tanzania, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, Venezuela, “West Bank and Gaza,” and Yemen.
The NDI and IRI, respectively, advance the causes of “Third Way” pro-corporate neo-liberalism and pro-business neo-conservatism. Anathema to both are workers’ rights and Marxist-Leninist/Communist and left-wing socialist movements. Both the NDI and IRI oppose anti-imperialist nationalistic parties opposed to U.S. and western hegemony, although there is strong evidence that they infiltrate such movements on the left and right on behalf of CIA and Soros interests.
An August 12 press release from GQR’s Democracy Corps actually downgraded U.S. democracy in a manner similar to Standard & Poor’s downgrading of the U.S. credit rating. The GQR release stated: “A new survey by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research for Democracy Corps reveals voters’ growing anger with Washington. This survey fielded at a unique time—just as Standard and Poor’s announced its credit rating downgrade. As a result, these results capture the immediate reactions of American voters—and their initial backlash against Congressional Republicans in particular and Washington in general.”
The Democracy Corps’s advancement of the “Third Way” principles previously advanced by the now-defunct pro-corporate and anti-worker/anti-union Democratic Leadership Council (DLC), a favorite of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, has now been taken up by a Soros-funded entity called the “Democracy Alliance” (DA). The Alliance’s partners remain generally hidden but one of its primary promoters just so happens to be Jon Cowan, the President of the Third Way, which assumed the pro-corporate responsibilities of the DLC within the Democratic Party. Cowan writes on the DA website: “The DA is the only organization of its kind and has quickly grown to become a powerful force for change in progressive politics.” Although the DA and other Soros-funded entities claim to counter the deep pockets of conservative groups financed by individuals like the Koch brothers, the pro-corporate DLC and its successors have received money from the Kochs and Soros, which exposes the “play one side against the other” tactics of the wealthy elite.
The power exerted by democracy “manipulators” linked to Soros is evident in the Donilon brothers. Mike Donilon, the counselor to Vice President Joe Biden, was a principal of the political consultancy firm of Shrum, Devine & Donilon from 2000 to 2006. Mike’s brother, Tom Donilon, is President Obama’s National Security Adviser. On Tom Donilon’s staff is Samantha Power. Power heads up the National Security Council’s Office of Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights where she coordinates U.S. support for the Libyan rebel Interim Transitional National Council through America’s Operation Odyssey Dawn and NATO military operations. Power also used her position to coordinate U.S. support, including that from Soros-funded NGOs for the Jasmine Revolution in Tunisia, the Lotus Revolution in Egypt, and Syria’s Facebook-linked “Day of Rage” rebellion.
After the democracy manipulators manage to bring about massive political and social disruption in targeted nations, one group that “comes to the rescue” is the Soros- and CIA-funded International Crisis Group (ICG). Currently, the ICG is working with western imperialist powers to divide up the spoils of civil war and ultimate conquest and occupation of Libya, Sudan, Pakistan, Somalia, Nigeria, North Korea, and Indonesia. The ICG is cementing into place the imperialist status quo occupations of Kosovo, Palestine, and Western Sahara. It is also seeking to have returned to Georgian control the breakaway nations of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. ICG and Soros and CIA operatives operate out of ICG offices in Abuja, Amman, Bishkek, Bogota, Cairo, Colombo, Dakar, Dushanbe, Islamabad, Jakarta, Kabul, Kathmandu, Nairobi, Port-au-Prince, Pristina, Seoul, and Tbilisi. On ICG’s executive committee is Soros, Bill Clinton’s deep-pocketed Canadian billionaire donor Frank Giustra; arch-neoconservative and Zionist war hawk Ken Adelman; the shadowy veteran of the Bush-Cheney administration Richard Armitage; Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer; Israeli President Shimon Peres; Ukrainian-Jewish steel magnate Victor Pinchuk; and Democratic Party financial adviser Alan Blinken.
Power is married to Cass Sunstein, who, as President Obama’s director of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs — the “information czar” — coordinates “cognitive infiltration” operations against anti-Obama, anti-U.S., and anti-globalization websites. WMR has been told by an informed insider that a number of the computer hacking operations ascribed to the hacker group “Anonymous” are actually being funded by Soros and coordinated through Sunstein’s and Power’s offices in the White House, particularly those operations directed against the Iranian government during the themed “Green Revolution” following the disputed 2009 presidential election, the government of Zimbabwe, which supports Qaddafi in Libya, the generally pro-Palestinian center-left government of Ireland, the Tunisian government of former President Zine el Abidine Ben Ali, the government of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and his now-defunct National Democratic Party, the government of Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi, the Spanish police (Spain also supports Palestine), and the governments of Turkey and Brazil (both supportive of Palestine and nuclear negotiations with Iran). The support of the U.S. Cyber Command, run by the National Security Agency (NSA), was coordinated by Power’s boss, Tom Donilon, the National Security Adviser.
However, it was Anonymous attacks directed against HB Gary Federal, a company with links to the Republican Party’s own computer disruption campaigns and “sock puppet” operations, in addition to the pro-Republican U.S. Chamber of Commerce, that helped blow the lid off the hacking and themed revolution activities of Soros, the Donilons, Power, and Sunstein, as well as the election engineering activities of Greenberg’s organizations. Individuals with knowledge of the high-technology hacking and disinformation operations who are linked to the upper echelons of the Republican Party, revealed that a “proxy” cyber-war has now developed between the Obama White House on one side and the Republicans and their allies on the other. The influence of Soros and the White House in Israel’s social revolution resulted in the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and Israel’s governing Likud coalition leaking Mossad intelligence on Soros’s, Sunstein’s, the Donilons’, Power’s, and Greenberg’s operations to top Republican cyber-warfare operatives, including the fact that many of the attacks blamed on “Anonymous” are being carried out by the White House operatives in coordination with the CIA and NSA.
The global “democracy engineers” within the Democratic/Soros camp and the GOP are concerned that the surrent wave of popular discontent with unbridled capitalism will swamp the interests of the oligarchs and elites. Therefore, the CIA, along with the political operartives of the NED, NDI, IRI, USAID, CIA, White House, and the Council on Foreign Relations have decided to adopt an infiltration and “divide and conquer” strategy to tamp down the forces for social action and steer the street forces into compliance and a relative docile stance.
