Foundations, Canada, And The Philippe Le Bel Moment Of History

A few days ago I blogged about the power and influence of so-called “non governmental organizations,” and recalled the example from the 1950s, the US House of Representatives’ Reece Committee, calling such an investigation the “Philippe le Bel” moment of history. Philippe was the King of France who, so the standard narrative goes, needed money, raided the Templar Order houses and preceptories throughout France, and found… nothing. This, of course, is taken by most academic studies of the period and the event as more evidence that conspiracy theories – especially this one – are simply the plaything of some not-very-serious people.  I take it exactly in the opposite way: finding nothing in a coordinated raid which has been prepared in great secrecy and executed under sealed orders throughout all of medieval France should raise the suspicion meter, and for most ordinary individuals who have not been lobotomized by the modern American quackademy, this is the case. Finding nothing indicates a pre-planned and coordinated response to the King’s actions. And that meant… moles.

Now attention is growing throughout the West not only to the power and influence of these foundations, but more importantly, to their activities. Viktor Orban’s Hungary has brought attention to the organizations and efforts of Darth Soros; Macedonia recently saw widespread protests against his organization; talk is growing -for those not in the USA and able to listen to American radio, for similar investigations. Now, in this article that was shared by Mr. G.L.R., serious attention is being given to the same problem… in Canada:

http://philosophyofmetrics.com/canada-must-ban-george-soros-foundations-now-freepom/ (Copy and paste into your browser)

While it’s not my place to comment on whether that nation should “drop the monarchy and become a republic”, I am intrigued by certain propositions in the article; I want to draw your attention to the opening paragraphs and their allegations:

It’s of paramount importance that Canada and other nations cut off foreign funding to civil society groups and foundations which operate within their borders. These foundations and organizations represent outside forces which have ulterior motives and agendas which may not always, if ever, be aligned with the needs of the people.

One such foreign “philanthropic” organization is the George Soros funded Open Society Foundation. This foundations sole purpose is the promotion and expansion of the liberal-left international agenda meant to reduce national sovereignty, fund and support massive migration, such as is taking place in Europe, and the promote the mandate of open borders.

Soros and his foundations have provided the majority of funding for liberal-left social justice movements which have eroded national identity, encouraged abortion and divorce, and promote extremist environmentalism and taxation, such as the carbon tax scams which are being implemented in western nations.

Along with giving billions to left-wing socialist organizations Soros also attempts to influence elections, as in the recent American election and other nations.  Even within nations his foundations fund and support groups such as the Dogwood Initiative based in British Columbia.  This group’s stated goal is to influence Canadian elections in federal ridings.

The attempts to remove American sovereignty have been halted by the election of Donald Trump which is why Soros is now funding the protests against the Trump administration.  The control which Soros has over the news media comes from his funding and support for the progressive media watchdog group called Media Matters.  The term “media watchdog” should be interpreted as “ensuring the promotion of liberal-left propaganda”.

And there are these allegations in later paragraphs:

The Open Society Foundation has even infiltrated the education systems of most nations by funding curriculum studies and implementing changes to the education courses.  This has been happening for so long now that most western teachers are promoting the liberal-left agenda without even realizing they have been manipulated and conditioned to destroy their own culture from within.

George Soros is evening funding a progressive war against Israel and has, for all intents and purposes, successfully infiltrated its extreme environmental agenda into the Catholic Church.  There is no political ideology or religion which is off limits.  The liberal-left international agenda has even taken control of the United Nations over the last few decades and is now attempting to force a loss of sovereignty on member nations through sustainable development planning, such as Agenda 2030. (Emphasis added)

What the activities of these NGOs both domestically within various nations actually constitutes is, in my opinion, a violation of already extant laws prohibiting private individuals from conducting foreign policy. In short, Soros has painted a big target not only on himself, but on other such foundations and groups engaged in similar activities (Bohemian Grove, Bilderberg, anyone?), and thus, perforce, any such investigations would have to include the activities and attendees at those groups. As Rene Wormser, chief council to the Reece Committee, observed decades ago, these types of groups essentially are the modern versions of the medieval military orders: they are legalized cabals operating within various nations formulating and enacting policy counter to the national interests of those nations.

Trumps, Watergate, Nixon, Rockefeller: The Real Lesson

fakenews
—Two very different men, two very different presidents, Trump and Nixon; but the real reasons for attacking them are the same—

Source: NoMoreFakeNews.com | JonRappoport.wordpress.com
Jon Rappoport
February 22, 2017

Watergate eventually became the story of two young rookie reporters who exposed and took down a president. Nixon.

Try to think of another major story in your lifetime where the reporters themselves took center stage, and in the process nearly eclipsed their own work. Odd.

One of them, Bob Woodward, expanded his fame. The powers-that-be permitted him to go on and, with extraordinary access, write books criticizing future presidents. Woodward became the in-house attack dog. Mr. Limited Hangout.

The other reporter, Carl Bernstein, faded into relative obscurity. Well, after all, he began exposing many journalists’ connections to the CIA. That wasn’t a productive career move. It was, perhaps, a case of him biting the CIA hand that, without his knowledge, had fed him during his Watergate investigation.

What Woodward and Bernstein didn’t know, during Watergate, was this: On the mega-corporate front, the Rockefeller proposal for world control—“free trade, no tariffs”—was advancing toward fruition, and Richard Nixon was standing in the way.

This man, a crook, a president, a liar, an insecure parody of a head of state, Richard Nixon, had gone off script. He had REALLY gone off script.

In an effort to bolster US companies and protect them from foreign competition inside the United States, Nixon began erecting tariffs on a range of goods imported into the US.

If this Nixon economic plan spread to other countries, the entire global program to install “free trade” and mega-corporate emperors on their thrones for a thousand years could crash and burn.

Nixon was a Rockefeller man. He was owned by them. He’d been rescued from financial ruin by The Family, and now he was in the White House undermining their greatest dream. You can’t overstate the degree of the betrayal, from the Rockefeller point of view. You simply can’t.

Something had to be done. The president had to go. This was the real motivation behind Watergate. This was the real op. Yes, there were sub-motives and smaller contexts, as in any major op, but the prime mover was: get Free Trade back on track, and get suitable revenge on the puppet in the White House who went off the script.

Any historian who overlooks this is an outright fool or a deceiver.

Whether the Watergate break-in was planned to serve the higher goal or was pounced upon, after the fact, as the grand opportunity, is beside the point. It was there, and it was used. It became the starting point for the Washington Post, its publisher, veteran editor, and two cub reporters to break Richard Nixon into pieces.

And if the Rockefeller people needed an inside man at the White House to report on the deteriorating mental state of the president as he heated up in the pressure cooker, they had Henry Kissinger, who was another Rockefeller operative.

The Washington Post was owned by Katharine Graham, who was herself a very close friend of the Rockefeller Family. Years later, she would be awarded a medal of honor by the University of Chicago, an institution founded by John D. Rockefeller. On her death, a paid heartfelt obituary was inserted in the NY Times by the trustees, faculty, and staff of Rockefeller University, where she had served on the University Council.

And she and Nixon already hated each other by the early 1970s.

The managing editor of the Washington Post, Ben Bradlee, was an old hand at writing promotional material, having worked in Europe crafting releases for a CIA front group. A former Naval intelligence man, he liked one of his cub reporters, Bob Woodward, who had also worked for the Navy in intelligence.

When Woodward came to Bradlee with a story about a man in a parking garage who was passing secrets from the White House/FBI about Watergate, we are supposed to believe that Bradlee naturally responded by giving the green light to a major investigation. Woodward and Carl Bernstein, another cub, would undertake it—with nothing more than Bradlee’s reputation and the future survival of the Post and Katharine Graham’s empire on the line if the cubs got it wrong.

We are supposed to believe Bradlee gave the green light, without knowing who the man in the garage was, without knowing whether Woodward could be trusted, without even getting permission from Graham to move ahead.

Bradlee, a grizzled veteran of Washington, understanding exactly what Washington could do to people who told secrets out of school, just said to Woodward and Bernstein, “You’d better be damned sure you’re right, because otherwise we’re all in trouble.”

Two untested cub reporters set loose in a cage with tigers.

The odds of that happening were nil. Bradlee had to know a great deal from the beginning, and he had to have Katharine Graham’s signal to move. The series of breaking stories would be spoon-fed to the unsuspecting young reporters. They would be consumed by their ambition to advance their careers. Bradlee was confident because he had the essentials of the scandal in hand—all the way up to Nixon, the target—well in advance of his two reporters.

To have proceeded otherwise—Bradlee was simply not that kind of fool. Whatever Deep Throat, the man in the garage, was dishing out to Woodward didn’t really matter. Bradlee already had it in his pocket. Deep Throat was merely a contrivance to allow the story to expand and grow by steps, and to permit Woodward and Bernstein to believe they were peeling layers from an onion.

The man behind the curtain was David Rockefeller.

After the whole scandal had been exposed and Nixon had flown away, in disgrace, from the White House for the last time, David Rockefeller addressed a meeting of the Chamber of Commerce of the European Community (October, 1975). He was there to allay their fears about Nixon’s betrayal of the new economic world order. There was really very little he needed to say. David had already created (1973) the free-trade Trilateral Commission, an exceedingly powerful force. And a new puppet, Gerald Ford was in the White House; and Ford had appointed David’s brother, Nelson Rockefeller, as his vice president.

David told the European attendees, “Fortunately, there are no signs that these anti-[free] trade measures [of Nixon] are supported by the [Ford] Administration.”

And that was that. The global mega-corporate colossus was back on track.

The temporary rip in the Matrix had been repaired.

On a far lower level of power politics, everyone and his brother were consumed with the contrails of the scandal that had driven away Nixon and his colleagues. People were congratulating each other on the expunging of a corrupt conspiracy from public life.

The real players, of course, were still in place, stronger than ever. David Rockefeller and his aides were preparing for an even greater coup. They had chosen an obscure man with zero name recognition to be the next president of the United States. Jimmy Carter. Carter would function to forward the goals of the Trilateral Commission in bold view of anyone who knew the score.

And every president since Carter, regardless of party affiliation, has supported and extended those Globalist-corporate goals. No questions asked. Obama, who fatuously remarked during his 2008 election campaign that NAFTA “needs to be revisited,” has taken his cues like any other puppet.

When, from this perspective, you examine the global takeover of land and resources by GMO agribusiness, the destruction of small family farms, the plundering of natural resources in the Third World, the use of UN “peacekeepers” and “humanitarian groups” and intelligence agencies to create a wedge, for corporations, into these areas, you see the hand of the Rockefeller plan.

When you see the destruction of currencies and the escalation of insupportable debt, the incursion of a bewildering number of UN-affiliated groups sinking their teeth into local communities all over the planet to “manage sustainable development,” you see the plan.

And when you see “free trade” and no tariffs, you see the essentials nuts and bolts of the plan.

The innocuous-sounding “free trade” policy is the number-one priority of every American president. He must do two things: rarely speak of it, and allow it to move forward. That’s all. In return, he gets to act as if he’s the most powerful man in the world.

But if he wobbles and considers taking up a position against free trade (corporate domination of the planet), he can look back and see what happened to Richard Nixon. He can learn from that example.

He can re-learn the famous words of Zbiggie Brzezinski, co-founder of the Trilateral Commission and David Rockefeller’s intellectual flunkey: “The nation state as a fundamental unit of man’s organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force: International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation-state.”

Like Jimmy Carter, a president can espouse the most wide-ranging humanitarian philosophy and ascend to a cloud of beautiful altruism, admired by all. As long as he sticks to the plan.

If not, agents and reporters coming out of nowhere will try to demolish him.

—Suddenly, a swaggering, self-congratulatory, fast-talking cowboy named Donald Trump appeared as a presidential candidate. And lo and behold, he attacked Globalism by name. He claimed he would dump it in favor of American nationalism. He repeated this oath many times. And he won the election, unseating a lifelong Globalist named Hillary Clinton.

Whether Trump intends on keeping his promises and going up against the Rockefeller colossus, he has spoken of that which must not be uttered in public: the crimes of Globalism and free trade.

He has let the secret cat out of the bag. He has made people aware…

And for that, he must be punished.

What people are calling…

All Eyes On France? Behind The Scenes…

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
February 22, 2017

For some time I’ve been urging that the current political-cultural climate should be viewed “whole”, and that we’re witnessing an historical arc of unprecedented uniqueness. We are, I’ve been urging, in one of those periodic paradigm shifts that seems to happen about once every five hundred years, the last one being the Reformation, Counter-Reformation, the Thirty Years’ War, and the Peace of Westphalia, which basically cemented our modern laissez faire attitude to religion and the secular state. But this current change, I’ve been urging, is unlike any other in prior human history, and hence has no real precedents. It’s being driven by unprecedented technological change and development which in turn is rendering more and more human labor productivity moot, and that in turn impacts the financial system and model under which we currently operate moot. German finance minister Wolfgang Schaueble has stated that the debt growth model is over. There is no way forward, he argues, that is not a reform. Reading between the lines a bit, what Herr Schaueble is actually saying is that there is no way out of the current mess that does not involve increase in equity finance, in production, and hence, in human productivity.

As a component of all this, I’ve also been arguing that the current political cycle in the west, which has seen historic elections in the United Kingdom with the BREXIT referendum and more recently the overwhelming parliamentary vote to move forward with leaving the E.U., with the recent American presidential election cycle, and with the upcoming national elections in France, the Netherlands, and Germany, must also be viewed whole. In my opinion, we’ve been witnessing “deep state factional revolts” against the prevailing globaloney neo-con neo-lib agendas that have formulated domestic and foreign policy in these nations. Recall, for example, the strange story from last year of Queen Elizabeth inviting the British vice-premier to the palace for dinner and tea, during which she expressed, in the form of questions, reservations about the whole E.U. experiment. Then BREXIT happened, and Cameron and said vice premier were gone.

With the growing opposition to the immigration and refugee policies of Brussels and Berlin, I’ve also been urging that the upcoming votes in France, the Netherlands, and Germany will be of similar cultural and historical importance, and for the moment, France, and the candidacy for the presidency of Marine Le Pen, is front and center, and for several reasons. Not the least of these reasons involves the ability of private groups not only to lobby for domestic policy changes but to pursue a variety of censorship practices and other “active measures” to affect cultural change. So, as you ponder the upcoming French elections, consider these stories. The first was shared by Mr. V.T.:

Soros Funds Google to Stop Populist Le Pen

http://www.infowars.com/soros-funds-google-to-stop-populist-le-pen/embed/#?secret=C1pxEnIKPw

Well, we’ve seen similar attempts to censor news by altering search engine algorithms before. Same tactic, same agenda, only this time, it’s Ms. Le Pen in the cross hairs. Recently Wikileaks divulged the CIA’s attempts to gain information on French candidates during their 2012 election, presumably for the purpose of influencing the outcome:

Wikileaks Exposes CIA Involvement In French 2012 Presidential Election

Clearly, nationalist Le Pen would not be at the top of the list of “desirable outcomes,” neither in 2012, and especially now with the EU in tatters from Mad Madame Merkel’s immigration policies. Bluntly put, without France, there is no E.U. And Ms. Le Pen has been advancing the idea of a FREXIT.

The real focus of my concern today is really these hidden influences – particularly from so-called non-government organizations like the various foundations of Darth Soros – on domestic and foreign policy, an influence Ms. Le Pen is almost certain to mention and exploit, for the tide is turning, as this article shared by Mr. V.T. also points out:

Lawmakers probe US funding for Soros groups, left-wing causes in Europe

Consider the opening paragraphs in this regard:

Report alleges George Soros is meddling in foreign affairs

George Soros’ alleged meddling in European politics has caught the attention of Congress.

Concerns about Soros’ involvement most recently were raised by the Hungarian prime minister, who last week lashed out at the Soros “empire” and accused it of deploying “tons of money and international heavy artillery.”

But days earlier, Republican lawmakers in Washington started asking questions about whether U.S. tax dollars also were being used to fund Soros projects in the small, conservative-led country of Macedonia.

Rep. Christopher Smith, R-N.J., led a group of House lawmakers in writing to Ambassador Jess Baily — an Obama appointee — demanding answers. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, also expressed concerns about USAID money going to Soros’ Open Society Foundations as part of a broader concern that the U.S. Embassy has been taking sides in party politics.

A few days ago I blogged about the necessity for another “Reece” committee to investigate such foundation activity. It appears, in effect, that this is a possibility waiting in the wings. But the implications are indeed dire for Mr. Globaloney, for once such an investigation is underway, similar activities of private citizens meeting to make policy might come under scrutiny… for example, the Bilderberg group.

The problem confronting those interests now is the fact that such investigations are under way already: Frau Merkel faces parliamentary committees in the Bundestag, and if Ms. Le Pen is elected or even has a strong showing and manages to gain seats in the French national assembly, one can expect similar investigations to occur in France, and with all the power of the French bureaucracy, this could indeed be quite revealing. It would be quite a stretch of the imagination to believe that the French DST was not fully apprised of his activities. In Macedonia and Hungary, protests over his activities are under way, and Hungary is investigating. And Hungary, let us recall, has “historical” connections to Russia and to Russian intelligence, which similarly would have its own thick “Soros dossier.”

If it happens, then let’s hope those committees in various countries will “compare notes.” That’s probably what really has Darth Soros, Mr. Globaloney par excellence, and his ilk, worried. And that’s probably why they will spare no effort to keep Ms. Le Pen out of the Elyse Palace.

See you on the flip side…

Common Core Crisis [Part 3]

studying
TheBreakaway
Zy Marquiez
February 8, 2017

In our dreams, people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands. The present education conventions of intellectual and character education fade from their minds, and, unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive folk.  We shall not try to make these people, or any of their children, into philosophers, or men of science. We have not to raise up from them authors, educators, poets or men of letters. We shall not search for great artists, painters, musicians nor lawyers, doctors, preachers, politicians, statesmen — of whom we have an ample supply.  The task is simple. We will organize children and teach them in a perfect way the things their fathers and mothers are doing in an imperfect way.”
– [John D. Rockefeller Sr., Occasional Letter Number One, General Education Board

In previous posts [here and here] were shown the downright nonsense that students have to go through.  Below, additional evidence is shown illustrating why children’s test scores and intelligence keeps plummeting [as shown here], and its rather troublesome to say the least.

The example stems from the book, Drilling To The Core, which details a wide-ranging set of issues revolving around Common Core:

“In 1995, a student-teacher of fifth graders in Minneapolis wrote a letter to the editor of the Star-Tribune complaining about radically dumbed-down curriculum.  She wrote that 113 years earlier fifth-graders in Minneapolis were reading William Shakespeare, Henry Thoreau, George Washington, Sir Walter Scott, Mark Twain, Benjamin Franklin, Oliver Wendell Holmes, John Bunyan, Daniel Webster, Samuel Johnson, Lewis Caroll, Thomas Jefferson, and others like them in the Appletone School Reader, but that today:

I  was told children are not to be expected to spell the following words correctly: black, big, call, came, can, day, did, dog, down, get, good, have, he, home, if, in, is, it, like, little, man, morning, mother, my, night, off, our, over, people, play, ran, said, saw, she, some, soon, their, them, there, time, two, too, up, us, very, water, we, went, where, when, will, would, etc.  Is this nuts?”[1]

What’s stated above can be verified.  This was part of what older curriculums of true education – TRUE EDUCATION – involved, rather than what the facsimile of what we have now.

Education a century ago involved much higher standards than it does now, and its showing.  Not only have new studies shown the US Ranks 31 out of 35 developed nations in Math, but it also ranks 24th in reading literacy and 25th in science.

If the trend doesn’t change, all future generations will not only be stupid, but intellectually destitute, which is its true purpose, as can be seen here.

The only way to change that is now.

And the only way that will change is with individuals becoming proactive.

Don’t let your children settle for the parody of education we have now, for there are better alternatives. 

The only way individuals will reach excellence, is by pursuing excellence.

It’s been done before, and in much harsher conditions, and with much less information available.

Why not start now?

Darth Soros Again…

Source: GizaDeathStars.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
January 30, 2017

Last Thursday, during my News and Views from the Nefarium (Jan 26, 2017), readers might recall that I outlined my high octane speculation that perhaps Darth Soros and his various non-government foundations might be emerging as the target of first choice in the on going international “populist” revolt against Mr. Globaloney. I based this on a consideration of the emerging anti-Soros movement in Macedonia, and Hungary, and on the Russian bans on his “foundations” in Russia after the Euromaidan coup against the then government of The Ukraine and the installation of a western friendly puppet government.

After that video, many people started to flood my email box with articles about Soros, and it adds some more grist for that mill of high octane speculation and for the scenario I outlined. Consider these two articles, sent by many readers here:

Canada Must Ban George Soros Foundations Now (FREEPOM)

http://philosophyofmetrics.com/canada-must-ban-george-soros-foundations-now-freepom/embed/#?secret=N2ENaz1c7C

Dutch Regulator Accidentally Posts Soros’s Short Positions

Let’s take a few paragraphs from the first article:

It’s of paramount importance that Canada and other nations cut off foreign funding to civil society groups and foundations which operate within their borders. These foundations and organizations represent outside forces which have ulterior motives and agendas which may not always, if ever, be aligned with the needs of the people.

One such foreign “philanthropic” organization is the George Soros funded Open Society Foundation. This foundations sole purpose is the promotion and expansion of the liberal-left international agenda meant to reduce national sovereignty, fund and support massive migration, such as is taking place in Europe, and the promote the mandate of open borders.

Soros and his foundations have provided the majority of funding for liberal-left social justice movements which have eroded national identity, encouraged abortion and divorce, and promote extremist environmentalism and taxation, such as the carbon tax scams which are being implemented in western nations.

Along with giving billions to left-wing socialist organizations Soros also attempts to influence elections, as in the recent American election and other nations.  Even within nations his foundations fund and support groups such as the Dogwood Initiative based in British Columbia.  This group’s stated goal is to influence Canadian elections in federal ridings.

The attempts to remove American sovereignty have been halted by the election of Donald Trump which is why Soros is now funding the protests against the Trump administration.  The control which Soros has over the news media comes from his funding and support for the progressive media watchdog group called Media Matters.  The term “media watchdog” should be interpreted as “ensuring the promotion of liberal-left propaganda”. (Emphasis added)

The article quite rightly raises – albeit in an elliptical and round-about way – the hypocrisy of the corporate controlled media, complaining of “Russian influence” over the recent American elections, while it continued to ignore the question not only of Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel’s attempts to influence those same elections via contributions to another such foundation (and we all know which one that is), but of the influence of foundations  with their blatantly globalist agendas which espouse ideologies contrary to the national interests of the countries in which they operate.  While the opposition to Darth Soros in Canada seems confined for the moment to the opposition, I rather suspect that as the consequences of globaloney continue to impact that nation, that such calls will intensify.

What really caught my attention, however, that the first paragraph’s implicit suggestion that foundations as such – not simply those of Soros – are a cause for concern, and this recalled to my mind the efforts of the Reece committee in the 1950s in the United States to investigate the power and influence of foundations. The Reece committee, a successor in the Republican controlled Congress that took office on the coattails of President Dwight Eisenhower, was the successor to a committee that had been appointed by the previous Democratic Congress to investigate foundations, but whose efforts were largely sabotaged both by Republicans and Democrats refusing to fund it sufficiently. (For a more complete review of these committees, see my book, The Third Way.)  What the Reece committee and its predecessor found, however, was highly suggestive, because it concluded, long before any of the Soros NGOs were on the scene, that several famous corporate foundations – Ford, Rockefeller, Carnegie and so on – were engaged in a similar ideological commitment and effort. Indeed, Rene Wormser, chief counsel to the Reece Committee, wrote a book about the results of the Committee, Foundations: Their Power and Influence, in which he described the foundations as modern equivalents to the great mediaeval crusading orders: they were tax exempt, had their own agenda, and were, in effect, extraterritorial sovereignties and “information gatekeepers” designed to create and control the mega-narratives of society.

This suggests my first high octane speculation of the day: perhaps, with the increasing attention on Soros, we are witnessing the old struggle exemplified by the Reece Committee surfacing once again, and trying to finish the job it left unfinished. Of course, the foundations under investigation then were not accused of covertly funding violent activities in the hopes of counteracting elected governments, as is alleged by some to be the case for the Soros interests. If those allegations should be proven to be true or even a strong prima facie case be made that they are true, then those activities have endangered the whole edifice of foundations beyond the Soros interests, and that cannot be something those powerful families behind them will want to see, given the intertwined nature of networks among the super-rich.

Turning to the second article, however, the possibilities…

Stop Operation Soros (SOS): Massive Movement To Overthrow George Soros Explodes In Macedonia

Source: Pamelageller.com
Pamela Geller
January 22, 2017

A major new initiative called Stop Operation Soros (SOS), a movement dedicated to stopping the evil machinations of Nazi collaborator billionaire George Soros, has taken off in Macedonia.

The SOS founders called on citizens around the world to “fight against one-mindedness in the civil sector, which is devised and led by George Soros.” The movement has been set up to expose the ‘subversive activities of all of George Soros’s organizations. Hungary has also taken to steps to clamp down on Soros funded organizations by banning them from the country.

‘Stop Operation Soros’ movement begins in Macedonia

RT, 19 Jan 2017 15:36

A new initiative, Stop Operation Soros (SOS), dedicated to countering the influence of American billionaire activist George Soros, has been launched in Macedonia.

In a press conference on Tuesday, the founders of the group called on all “free-minded citizens,” regardless of ethnicity or religion, to join them in the “fight against one-mindedness in the civil sector, which is devised and led by George Soros,” the Vecer newspaper reported. The movement says it will first focus on uncovering ‘subversive’ activities by Soros-funded NGOs.

According to Nikola Srbov, a columnist for pro-government news portal Kurir and co-founder of SOS, Soros-funded NGOs have monopolized civil society in Macedonia and used their position to suppress dissenting views.

“We’ve witnessed the takeover of the entire civil sector and its abuse and instrumentalization to meet the goals of one political party. That is unacceptable and goes beyond the principles of civic organizing,” Srbov said at the press conference.

“The Open Society Foundation, operating under the Soros umbrella, used its funding and personnel to support violent processes in Macedonia. It has monopolized the civil society sector, pushing outside any organization which disagrees with the Soros ideology,” he stated.

Another co-founder, Cvetin Cilimanov, editor-in-chief of the state-run MIA news agency, accused Soros’s Open Society Foundations of undermining Macedonian sovereignty by working not only with the opposition center-left SDSM party, but also with outside interests. By cooperating with foreign embassies and organizations such as USAID, Cilimanov believes Soros-backed groups have interfered in the political process of Macedonia.

“This is unacceptable and has largely contributed to a feeling in the public that the traditional relations of partnership Macedonia enjoyed with some countries are being undermined,” Cilimanov told journalists.

A third founder of the initiative and editor-in-chief of the Republika news portal, Nenad Mircevski, declared that the group would work towards the “de-Soros-ization” of Macedonia, echoing a speech made by former prime minister and leader of the ruling VMRO-DPMNE party Nikola Gruevski in December. In the speech, Gruevski accused foreign powers and Soros-backed organizations of meddling in Macedonian politics.

Opposition figures have expressed concern at the rhetoric used by Gruevski, fearing the start of a crackdown on dissent and advocacy groups.

The Open Society Foundation (OSF) was set up by Hungarian-born Soros between the mid-1980s to early 1990s with the stated aim of helping former Eastern bloc countries transition from communism.

This has earned him the ire of Russian authorities, which in 2015 banned Soros and his foundations as a threat to national security.
