Wayne Madsen — Soros Ran US Foreign Policy on Post-Coup Ukraine

Not just Ukraine, either. Wayne Madsen reads though the Wikileaks docs so you don't have to.

George Soros has two side, political and economic/financial. Of course, they meet in promoting his overall interests. Politically, Soros is a liberal internationalist and liberal interventionist who uses his wealth and the influence it gives him to shape geopolitics through both US policy and personally funded subversion through NGOs. His goal is a neoliberal Europe effectively without borders from the Atlantic to the Urals. These policies also contribute to his financial interests in the affected areas. when push comes to shove, idealism gives way to realism and Soros acts to protect his interests.

Major media outlets in the US have ignored the leak of thousands of emails from billionaire George Soros’s Open Society Foundation by the activist hacker group DCLeaks. The OSF is the vehicle through which Soros has funneled billions of dollars over the past two decades to non-profit organizations in the US and throughout the world.
According to the documents, Soros has given more than $30 million to groups working for Hillary Clinton’s election in November, making him her largest single donor. So it is likely the case that the media’s support for Clinton has played some role in the mainstream media’s bid to bury the story.

It is also likely however, that at least some news editors failed to understand why the leaked documents were worth covering. Most of the information was already public knowledge. Soros’s massive funding of far-left groups in the US and throughout the world has been documented for more than a decade.
But failing to see the significance of the wider story because many of the details were already known is a case of missing the forest for the trees. The DCLeaks document dump is a major story because it exposes the forest of Soros’s funding networks.
The first thing that we see is the megalomaniacal nature of Soros’s philanthropic project. No corner of the globe is unaffected by his efforts. No policy area is left untouched.
On the surface, the vast number of groups and people he supports seem unrelated. After all, what does climate change have to do with illegal African immigration to Israel? What does Occupy Wall Street have to do with Greek immigration policies? But the fact is that Soros-backed projects share basic common attributes.
They all work to weaken the ability of national and local authorities in Western democracies to uphold the laws and values of their nations and communities.
They all work to hinder free markets, whether those markets are financial, ideological, political or scientific. They do so in the name of democracy, human rights, economic, racial and sexual justice and other lofty terms.
In other words, their goal is to subvert Western democracies and make it impossible for governments to maintain order or for societies to retain their unique identities and values.…
The peoples of the West need to recognize the common foundations of all Soros’s actions. They need to realize as well that the only response to these premeditated campaigns of subversion is for the people of the West to stand up for their national rights and their individual right to security. They must stand with the national institutions that guarantee that security, in accordance with the rule of the law, and uphold and defend their national values and traditions.
Internationalists like Soros view national sovereignty and democracy as the enemy of international
organizations making the rule and policing the globe to ensure the rules are followed.

That Soros funds far left groups, what a joke? I'm all for socialism in Europe, with a tax on the mega rich at 98% (because that still leaves them with millions, and no one needs more). Now that's left.

The left is most comprised of dupes for the ruling elite in their internationalism (read transnational corporate takeover). The slogans of the left like internationalism, open borders and international law (made by TPTB), are analogous to "guns, gays and God" for the dupes on the right.

That is because they are working for a new world order in which they will control the world.

To be left is to not be racist. This is how we define ourselves, and many on the left would sooner die then admit that they are not keen on excessive immigration.

I spoke about my dislike of too much immigration once on a very left wing site full of really nice people like myself and I felt guilty about it for months afterwards. I felt that part of me had died. But I wonder if lots people on the left are like me and don't like excessive immigration either but can't admit it. I walk about my town some days and I'm the only English person in it, and I'm not keen in it, I feel unhappy.

I'm okay with mufti cultural society, but we should let this to have time to adjust first. My best friend is an Indian

The right blame Soros for the open borders policy. Some on the right, like Alex Jones, love the Koch brothers, but they campaigned for many years for complete open borders. They were libertarians who wanted a complete free for all. They wanted to bring down labour costs.

I have two posts to put out that show how ugly racism is.

The far left are in favour of free movement of labour as they believe this would bring an end to capitalism. Koch brothers believe differently.

Elites believe that they are only people qualified to be run things (under capitalism because meritocracy); therefore, they are entitled to do so. They are for removing the obstacles that stand in the way of this.

This is true of most all of the various elites, right, left and center, and it is true of all political systems. It just manifests differently. Politics in the broad sense is a conflict among elites.
