  • Food First "But then confusing economic demand with actual availability, the Times jumps to a dubious solution. Quoting World Bank president Robert Zoellick, the paper calls for “[A] ‘green revolution’ to increase farm productivity and raise crop yields in Africa.” This was of course, a likely response from the World Bank, the institution that, along with the International Monetary Fund, forcibly applied the Structural Adjustment Programs (SAPs) responsible for destroying the capacity of African nations to develop or protect their own domestic agricultural systems from the dumping of subsidized grain from the U.S. and Europe. Over the same 25 years in which SAPs were being implemented, the Consultative Group for International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) invested over 40% if its $350 million/year budget in Africa’s “Green Revolution.” The result? A big zero. Actually, it was worse, because as African marketing boards, agricultural ministries, national research programs and basic infrastructure fell under the scythe of the mighty SAPs, Africa’s agricultural systems steadily eroded. Now their entire food systems are hopelessly vulnerable to economic and environmental shock—hence the severity of the current food price inflation crisis."

No one debates that imidacloprid is toxic to bees, yet Bayer, the exclusive patent holder from 1988 until this year, denies its product causes CCD. Many countries including France and Brazil are employing the "precautionary principle" and pulling products containing imidacloprid from the shelves. But in the U.S., homeowners and farms are using more and more of it — especially since many competing products (which relied on the compound diazinon to kill grubs and other insects) have already been banned due to their proven toxicity."
  • NewsWithViews  An article in Natural News by David Gutierrez on September 30, 2008 has linked the bee die-off in the Baden-Wurttemburg state of Germany to direct contact with the insecticide clothianidin found on corn seeds (German Research Center for Cultivated Plants). This pesticide had been applied to rapeseed and sweet corn seeds in the Rhine River Valley. Piles of dead bees were discovered at the entrance of hives in early May 2008. Clothianidin was found in the tissues of 99% of the dead bees. This is the time when corn seeding takes place according to Walter Haefeker, president of the European Professional Beekeeping Association. The Julius Huehn Institute (federal agricultural research agency) stated “it can be unequivocally be concluded that a poisoning of the bees is due to a rub-off of the pesticide ingredient clothianidin from corn seeds.” This chemical is estimated to have killed two-thirds of the bees in this state.

Worse, the trade in children is supported and sanctioned by members of the US and other diplomatic corps members in various Southeast and South Asian capitals. ...  The following photograph has been obtained by WMR. It was recently sent anonymously to Noreen Gosch, whose then-12-year old son Johnny was kidnapped from a West Des Moines street in 1982. 1982 was the same year that this editor, working covertly for the FBI and Naval Investigative Service, helped bust a huge pedophile ring that was later determined to have been linked to high White House officials. The network would receive widespread attention during the waning days of the Reagan administration and result in front page coverage by the Washington Times during the Bush 41 administration."

  • OrganicConsumer "Pioneer Hi-Bred's website boasts that their genetically modified (GM) Liberty Link corn survives doses of Liberty herbicide, which would normally kill corn. The reason, they say, is that the herbicide becomes "inactive in the corn plant." They fail to reveal, however, that after you eat the GM corn, some inactive herbicide may become reactivated inside your gut and cause a toxic reaction. In addition, a gene that was inserted into the corn might transfer into the DNA of your gut bacteria, producing long-term effects. These are just a couple of the many potential side-effects of GM crops that critics say put the public at risk." Lerman

  • Wikipdedia Environmental issues ConAgra has been criticized for its lack of response to global warming. A 2006 report by CERES, a non-profit organization that works to address global climate change and other sustainability issues, titled "Corporate Governance and Climate Change: Making the Connection," measures how 100 leading global companies are responding to global warming. Companies in the report were evaluated on a 0 to 100 scale. ConAgra scored a total of 4 points, the lowest of any of the food companies rated.[2] in 2002, ConAgra, together with other major food and beverage companies including PepsiCo, General Mills, Kellogg, Sara Lee, and H.J. Heinz Co., spent heavily to defeat Oregon's measure 27, which would have required food companies to label products that contain genetically modified ingredients.[3] According to the Oregon Secretary of State, ConAgra contributed $71,000 to the campaign to defeat the ballot initiative.[4] establish 1922,

  • Science Daily "Toxic Pollen From Widely Planted, Genetically Modified Corn Can Kill Monarch Butterflies, Cornell Study Shows ScienceDaily (May 21, 1999) — ITHACA, N.Y. -- An increasingly popular commercial corn, genetically engineered to produce a bacterial toxin to protect against corn pests, has an unwanted side effect: Its pollen kills monarch butterfly larvae in laboratory tests, according to a report by Cornell University researchers.  ...  See also: Plants & Animals Insects and Butterflies Agriculture and Food Genetically Modified Trends & Issues Reference Transgenic plants Prairie Restoration Biological pest control Genetically modified organism Writing in the latest issue (May 20) of the journal "Nature", the Cornell researchers note that this hybrid crop, known as" Bt"-corn, has genes from the bacterium" Bacillus thuringiensis" ("Bt") spliced into the plant genes. These hybrids are very effective against the ravenous European corn borer, a major corn pest that is destroyed by the plant's toxic tissue. The engineered corn is safe for human consumption.  ...   Unlike many pesticides, the "Bt"-corn has been shown to have no effect on many "nontarget" organisms -- pollinators such as honeybees or beneficial predators of pests like ladybugs. But the "Bt-"modified corn produces pollen containing crystalline endotoxin from the bacterium genes. When this corn pollen is dispersed by the wind, it lands on other plants, including milkweed, the exclusive food of monarch caterpillars and commonly found around cornfields.  ...  Says John E. Losey, Cornell assistant professor of entomology and the primary investigator on the study: "We need to look at the big picture here. Pollen from "Bt"-corn could represent a serious risk to populations of monarchs and other butterflies, but we can't predict how serious the risk is until we have a lot more data. And we can't forget that Bt-corn and other transgenic crops have a huge potential for reducing pesticide use and increasing yields. This study is just the first step, we need to do more research and then objectively weigh the risks versus the benefits of this new technology."  ...  Like all grasses, corn is wind-pollinated, and the pollen can be blown more than 60 yards from the edge of cornfields. "Pollen is that yellow dusting your car gets on spring and summer days; pollen is everywhere," Losey explains. "That's why we are concerned about this problem."  ...  Other researchers on the study were Linda S. Rayor, Cornell instructor in entomology, and Maureen E. Carter, Cornell research aide.  ...  "Monarchs are considered to be a flagship species for conservation. This is a warning bell," says Rayor. "Monarchs themselves are not an endangered species right now, but as their habitat is disrupted or destroyed, their migratory phenomena is becoming endangered."  ...  In the laboratory tests, monarchs fed milkweed leaves dusted with so-called transformed pollen from a "Bt"-corn hybrid ate less, grew more slowly and suffered a higher mortality rate, the researchers report. Nearly half of these larvae died, while all of the monarch caterpillars fed leaves dusted with nontransformed corn pollen or fed leaves without corn pollen survived the study."

Dooley, Economic Policy Institute Subject: Re: 10 Billionaires Could Wipe Out Poverty (Comment Received) For purposes of 'wiping out,' 'out-of-poverty' was defined in the Report as per capita income equivalent to $1 daily - an immense improvement for most of Africa & China. For folks with bigger ambitions - like 'equality' - if US per capita income were to grow no more than 3% annually, it would take less than FOUR CENTURIES for Ethiopian per capita income to equal ours if theirs doubled annually. At least we're doing our part. It takes more than talk of a 'global village' - or fair labor standards' trickle-down - to raise children's CHANCES (not even standard) of living in 'developing' countries. "

  • ThinkProgress  In response to the “severe budget cuts that would disproportionately target the poor and the hungry at home and abroad,” 28 Members of Congress are joining 35,000 Americans in former Congressman and Ambassador Tony Hall’s Hungerfast — an effort launched March 28 to demand that the budget deficit not be balanced on the backs of the vulnerable. In protest of “the severe cuts being proposed to poverty-focused international assistance programs” which “largely hurt women and girls globally” who represent “60 percent of the hungry worldwide,” 14 Democratic congresswomen will fast this week: Fasters are demanding that the budget deficit not be closed by slashing programs targeting the vulnerable at a time of economic distress. In particular, Women Thrive co-launched this effort to draw attention to the severe cuts being proposed to poverty-focused international assistance programs, which will largely hurt women and girls globally. Women are the majority of the poor and 60 percent of the hungry worldwide.[...]    ...   The women members fasting this week are Representatives Karen Bass (D-CA), Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Susan Davis (D-CA), Rosa DeLauro (D-CT), Donna Edwards (D-MD), Marcia Fudge (D-OH), Mazie Hirono (D-HI), Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), Marcy Kaptur (D-OH), Barbara Lee (D-CA), Laura Richardson (D-CA), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), Terri Sewell (D-AL), and Lynn Woolsey (D-CA).     ...   Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-OH) told ThinkProgress that, in these times, “many Americans are just hoping to be able to put food on the table.” “Republican cuts to programs that provide necessities to poor Americans, like Medicaid, Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), and SNAP, would devastate communities,” especially when “there’s a great need for them,” she said. “This fast is a small sacrifice to demonstrate my opposition to balancing our budget on the backs of the most vulnerable in our society.” 
  • SEC Executive Compensation Report:  The federal securities laws require clear, concise and understandable disclosure about compensation paid to CEOs, CFOs and certain other high-ranking executive officers of public companies. Several types of documents that a company files with the Commission include information about the company's executive compensation policies and practices. You can locate information about executive pay in: (1) the company's annual proxy statement; (2) the company's annual report on Form 10-K; (3) registration statements filed by the company to register securities for sale to the public; and (4) the company’s current report on Form 8-K.   ...  The easiest place to look up information on executive pay is probably the annual proxy statement. Annual reports on Form 10-K and registration statements might simply refer you to the information in the annual proxy statement, rather than presenting the information directly. Click here for information on how to locate a company's annual proxy statement on the SEC's website.    ...   How can I obtain a copy of a company's annual proxy statement?  A company is required to file its annual proxy statement with the SEC no later than the date proxy materials are first sent or given to shareholders. You can see this filing by using the SEC's database, known as EDGAR. To access the EDGAR database, go to the SEC's web site - www.sec.gov - and find the section entitled "Filings and Forms (EDGAR)." Click on "Search for Company Filings." When you get to the screen entitled "Search EDGAR Database," click on "Companies and Other Filers." Then enter the name of the company and then click "Find Companies." Select the appropriate company to view its SEC filings.  To view the annual proxy statement, select the most recent filing that has the title "DEF 14A." It's called a "DEF 14A" because it's the "definitive," or final, proxy statement. "14A" refers to the fact that proxy statements are filed pursuant to Section 14(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  http://www.sec.gov/answers/proxyhtf.htm

The effort will focus on educating the new Democratic congressional class as well as the news media on the history of Soros and his activities in fomenting crises, through "themed revolutions," in Eastern Europe and the nations of the former Soviet Union, attacking currencies and national economies, and engaging in predatory corporate practices that have resulted in the loss of hundreds of thousands of jobs in the United States.   ...   The initiative against Soros and his loyalists, who include retired General Wesley Clark, former US ambassador to the UN Richard Holbrooke, Carter National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, is in the initial stages and more information will be forthcoming as the project progresses.

  • Wikipedia   George Soros speaking in Malaysia Born August 12, 1930 (1930-08-12) (age 77) Budapest, Hungary Occupation speculator, investor, philanthropist, political activist Net worth $8.5 billion (Forbes)[1] Spouse Twice divorced (Annaliese Witschak and Susan Weber Soros) Children Robert, Andrea, Jonathan, Alexander, Gregory Website www.georgesoros.com George Soros (pronounced /'s?ro?s/ or /'s?r?s/,[2] Hungarian IPA: ['?oro?]) (born August 12, 1930, in Budapest, Hungary, as György Schwartz) is a Hungarian-born American financial speculator, stock investor, philanthropist, and political activist.[3] Currently, he is the chairman of Soros Fund Management and the Open Society Institute and is also a former member of the Board of Directors of the Council on Foreign Relations. According to his own website, Soros claims his support for the Solidarity labour movement in Poland, as well as the Czechoslovak human rights organization Charter 77, contributed to ending Soviet Union political dominance in those countries.[4] His funding and organization of Georgia's Rose Revolution was considered by Russian and Western observers to have been crucial to its success, although Soros said his role has been "greatly exaggerated." In the United States, he is known for having donated large sums of money in a failed effort to defeat President George W. Bush's bid for re-election in 2004. On BookTV, November 12, 2007, he said that he supports Barack Obama for the Democratic candidate in the 2008 election, but says that John Edwards, Hillary Clinton, or Joe Biden are all fine candidates, as well.  Soros is famously known for "breaking the Bank of England" on Black Wednesday in 1992. With an estimated current net worth of around $8.5 billion, he is ranked by Forbes as the 80th-richest person in the world.[1]
  • Suite101  Soros  "A self-professed foe of the tenets of communism and fascism, Mr. Soros firmly holds the value of the 'common good' over individual rights and freedoms. In the Global Open Society model, citizens would be willing to make personal sacrifices for the good of society, even if they must compromise their systems of belief. He touts democracy with certain mechanisms in place to stabilize the market and redistribution of wealth. His world 'community' sounds remarkably like the Russian 'commune' ideal..."

The history of capitalism is the history of the continuous spread of such transactional relationships-i.e., the market-into more and more fields of human activity. It is a process that cannot be stopped within capitalism as growing marketisation is just as much a feature of capitalism as capital accumulation; indeed the two go together.

  • WMR At first it appeared that the Turkmen post-Niyazov political upheaval may have been the work of the same anti-Russian neo-con elements that engineered coups in Ukraine, Georgia, and Kyrgyzstan and attempted coups in Moldova and Uzbekistan. The early signs suggested that was the case. Exiled Turkmen opposition figures who have received support from neo-con sources as well as George Soros announced they would be returning to Turkmenistan. Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko, who achieved power with the help of a neo-con-inspired "Orange Revolution" and who is married to a leading neo-con from the Reagan administration, announced he would lead Ukraine's delegation to Niyazov's funeral in Ashgabat, the Turkmen capital.
  • Multi-billionaire and political philanthropist, George Soros, an avid supporter of the Democratic Party, would be among those uncomfortable with this idea. It is well known that Soros played a key role in the Asian Crisis of the 1990s, and the ‘coloured’ revolutions in former Soviet Republics. Now that India and China have opened their economies to globalisation, they could face similar risks. The Executive Intelligence Review feels Soros is the public face of Rothschild bankers. Soon after the Asia Crisis, Soros himself claimed: “If there was ever a man who would fit the stereotype of the Judeo-plutocratic Bolshevik Zionist world conspirator, it is me,” (Sydney Morning Herald interview, November 15, 1997).

That very day, the FBI began tapping Halperin's phones at Kissinger's direction. (Kissinger says nothing of this in his memoirs and mentions Halperin in passing about four times.) Halperin left the NSC in September 1969 after only nine months but the tapping continued until February 1971. Halperin was also placed on Nixon's Enemies List. ... He was a friend of Daniel Ellsberg. When Ellsberg was investigated in connection with the Pentagon Papers, suspicion fell on Halperin, who some Nixon aides believed had kept classified documents when he left government service.

George Soros

Thalif Deen <mailto:ipsnoram@ipsnews.net
Inter Press Service (IPS) </external/?url=http://www.ipsnews.net  14 September 2003 UNITED NATIONS, Sep 12 (IPS) -- George Soros, most often described as a billionaire philanthropist, once shared some of the political values of US President George W. Bush. For example, they both wanted ''regime change'' in Iraq. Now Soros has made a full political circle: he wants to see a ''regime change'' in the U. S.. Soros has also been gunning for Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe, Libya's Muammar el-Qaddafi, Burma's Gen Than Shwe and Turkmenistan's president-for-life Saparmurat Niyazov. A long-time pro-democracy advocate and a sometimes currency speculator, Soros is openly backing a non-governmental initiative called 'Americans Coming Together' (ACT) aimed at stopping Bush in his bid for a second term as president of the U. S..  jobs reports

 ACT is planning to spend about $75 million to mobilize USvoters to defeat Bush in the next presidential elections in November 2004. Described as a counter-cultural investor whose net worth is more than $five billion, Soros has already contributed about $10 million to the anti-Bush campaign. Six other philanthropists have chipped in a total of about $12 million, while $8 million has been contributed by trade unions. Soros, who is chairman of the Open Society Institute (OSI) which promotes multi-party democracy worldwide, thinks that Bush and his aggressive unilateral foreign policy is doing more harm than good to the U. S..

He also believes the president has neither the intellectual capacity nor the political prowess to guide the USon a sound foreign policy course. Bush's policies are bound to be wrong ''because they are based on a false ideology'', he told students last month in a commencement address at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies in Washington.

He sees striking similarities between the USpresident and Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, both of whom believe in military power to achieve their political objectives. The idea that might is right, advocated by both leaders, cannot be reconciled with the idea of an open society, Soros told the students. A strong advocate of the concept of an ''open society,'' he argues that neo-1%s in the Bush administration have made a mockery of the values of freedom and democracy--all in the name of fighting terrorism. and Soros wants Washington to play a more constructive role in the progress of humanity. ''What will happen to the world if the most powerful country on earth--the one that sets the agenda--is solely preoccupied with self-preservation?'' he asked. ''Acting as the leader of a global open society will not protect the USfrom terrorist attacks,'' he warned, ''but by playing a constructive role, we can regain the respect and support of the world, and this will make the task of fighting terrorism easier.''

While he favored the removal of Iraqi president Saddam Hussein, Soros thinks that one of Bush's biggest foreign policy debacles is the war on Iraq. He has pooh-poohed the idea that the Bush administration is fostering democracy by invading and occupying the Middle East nation. ''Democracy cannot be imposed from the outside,'' he argues. ''I have been actively involved in building open societies in a number of countries through my network of foundations. Speaking from experience, I would never choose Iraq for nation building,'' he added.

Soros says his primary aim in getting involved with ACT is to mobilize civil society and convince people to go to the polls next year ''and vote for candidates who will reassert the values of the greatest open society in the world.'' The anti-Bush campaign is gathering support from anti-war groups, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and academics. ''The Soros initiative should gain support as the situation in Iraq worsens, and as the public becomes more aware that President Bush took us to war based on false information about Iraq's weaponry and about its connection to terrorist groups,'' John Quigley, professor of law at Ohio State University, told IPS. ''A president who initiates war on such (false) premises should not be re-elected,'' Quigley added. ''There is no question that if you really look at the deeper situation (about the Bush administration), George Soros is right,'' says Rob Wheeler, organizer of the United for Peace Coalition and U.N. Representative of the Association of World Citizens. ''The president and his administration is surely leading the country in a 'false and dangerous situation' and they must be stopped,'' he told IPS. ''The question is, really, what issues ACT will focus on and how tough they will be on the president,'' he added. The Hungarian-born Soros says he is not backing any candidate for the US presidency.

Besides Bush, Soros also targets US Attorney General John Ashcroft, author of the Patriot Act, a highly controversial law that has restricted civil liberties in the guise of fighting terrorism. Anyone who opposes the Patriot Act, says Ashcroft, is giving aid and comfort to the enemy. Ashcroft's remarks have prompted a rejoinder from Soros: ''These are views of extremists, not adherents to an open society.'' A graduate of the London School of Economics, Soros says one of his political pursuits was to defeat communism and transform former closed societies in the Soviet Union into open societies. Last week, he closed down his operations in Russia, where he spent over $1 billion promoting democracy in a country that was the cradle of communism. Russia, he said, had weathered all its crises, and needs no outside support to survive. Still, the OSI is known to spend over $450 million annually to create open societies in several developing nations and Eastern European countries.

Ironically, although his anti-Bush campaign has strong supporters in the current US anti-war movement, Soros is still vilified by anti-globalization groups, who criticize him for his strong advocacy of free market economies and the global capitalist system. As a currency trader, he is accused of making his fortune by manipulating markets, mostly in developing countries. He is said to have made one billion dollars on a single day by speculating on the British pound. In an article in Covert Action Quarterly last year, Heather Cotton said that Soros' foundations and financial machinations are partly responsible for the destruction of socialism in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union.

 ''He has set his sights on China. He was part of the full court press that dismantled Yugoslavia,'' she writes. Soros' role, she said, is to tighten the stranglehold of globalization and the ''New World Order'' while promoting his own financial gain. Cotton writes that while anti-globalization forces were freezing in the streets outside New York's Waldorf Astoria Hotel in February 2002, Soros was inside addressing the World Economic Forum, the traditional platform for the world's economic elites. ''As the police forced protesters into metal cages on Park Avenue, Soros was extolling the virtues of the 'open society.'" As chairman of Soros Fund Management, Soros built a huge fortune doubling as a speculator in international currency and financial markets. He has been accused of profiting unfairly in foreign markets, including developing country markets such as Thailand, and was lambasted by Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad for currency speculation that contributed to the 1997 Asian economic crisis. At a meeting at the University of Pennsylvania, Soros was asked how he reconciles his two roles in life: philanthropist and ruthless speculator. Pleading innocence, he said the cash crises he has been blamed for were really caused by government policies, not his speculative actions. ''I was used as a scapegoat for government actions,'' he added, pointing out that he is known in China as ''the crocodile.''  Boycott Fox 

 
 
WMR: The Most Dangerous Man in the World [just ahead of Rupert Murdoch]  September 2011 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 1% 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 1% 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-neo1% 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.

  • WMR June 1-2, 2008 -- UPDATED 1X --George Soros and controlling the message from the LeftMulti-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.   more search terms: perception management, themed revolution, Orange Revolution, Rose Revolution, Tulip, Kyrgyzstan, NATO, hosting military bases, privitazation of public highways, bridges, water, toll roads,  speculators, money laundering, Malaysian PM Mahathir Mohamed, wiped billions from their economy,  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.  Soros funded: Center for American Progress, MoveOn.org, America Coming Together, McKinney, Gravel not invited ...   Harken Energy (partly owned by Soros) bought Spectrum 7, Salem Bin Laden early investor in Arbusto Energy (Bush).  International Crisis Group, interfering in domestic affairs, Kosovo; Islamabad; Belgrade, Sarajevo; Pretoria; Nairobi; Kabul; Osh; and Tbilisi

    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 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.  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.

  • Food First "But then confusing economic demand with actual availability, the Times jumps to a dubious solution. Quoting World Bank president Robert Zoellick, the paper calls for “[A] ‘green revolution’ to increase farm productivity and raise crop yields in Africa.” This was of course, a likely response from the World Bank, the institution that, along with the International Monetary Fund, forcibly applied the Structural Adjustment Programs (SAPs) responsible for destroying the capacity of African nations to develop or protect their own domestic agricultural systems from the dumping of subsidized grain from the U.S. and Europe. Over the same 25 years in which SAPs were being implemented, the Consultative Group for International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) invested over 40% if its $350 million/year budget in Africa’s “Green Revolution.” The result? A big zero. Actually, it was worse, because as African marketing boards, agricultural ministries, national research programs and basic infrastructure fell under the scythe of the mighty SAPs, Africa’s agricultural systems steadily eroded. Now their entire food systems are hopelessly vulnerable to economic and environmental shock—hence the severity of the current food price inflation crisis."
