He's Coming For Your Country Now
Many of you have no doubt already heard of George Soros, the multibillionaire currency investor. He was considered responsible for the currency market explosion in 1997 that staggered the economies of the SouthEast Asian "tiger" nations for several years. He's also the founder of the Open Society Institute, where he funnels his money into some of his pet projects. These include relaxed, Holland-style drug laws and euthanasia.
But more important is the work of the Open Society Institute in toppling governments through ground-up popular rebellions. He's done it in Slovakia, Serbia and now Georgia (the former Soviet state).
According to this story in yesterday's Toronto Globe and Mail, Soros was responsible for funding and training the leaders of the mass protesters who forced President Eduard Shevardnadze to resign.
It was back in February that billionaire financier George Soros began laying the brickwork for the toppling of Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze.There's much, much more. Go and read the whole thing. It shows how carefully Soros and those he trained and funded worked. It also shows Soros reach and influence.
That month, funds from his Open Society Institute sent a 31-year-old Tbilisi activist named Giga Bokeria to Serbia to meet with members of the Otpor (Resistance) movement and learn how they used street demonstrations to topple dictator Slobodan Milosevic. Then, in the summer, Mr. Soros's foundation paid for a return trip to Georgia by Otpor activists, who ran three-day courses teaching more than 1,000 students how to stage a peaceful revolution.
Last weekend, the Liberty Institute that Mr. Bokeria helped found was instrumental in organizing the street protests that eventually forced Mr. Shevardnadze to sign his resignation papers. Mr. Bokeria says it was in Belgrade that he learned the value of seizing and holding the moral high ground, and how to make use of public pressure -- tactics that proved so persuasive on the streets of Tbilisi after this month's tainted parliamentary election.
This should concern all Americans regardless of their politics, because Soros and his billions have set their sights on George Bush and America.
Soros has donated millions to MoveOn.org and to the Democratic Party to fund efforts to explicitly defeat President Bush. Soros has said he seeks "regime change" because:
“America, under Bush, is a danger to the world....”Don't forget that it was Democrats who for years blasted Republicans as the party of the rich, the ones who used wealth to manipulate American politics. This is true, by the way; both parties are guilty as all hell. It was why the McCain-Feingold Bill was passed -- to "reform" the way politics was done to remove the influence of money. But this is the first time I know of where one man with money and an agenda and the ability to have significant impact on the whole political structure with only minimal direct support, has tried this. It concerns me profoundly.
Now we have an ultra-wealthy man -- one man -- who wants to remake our government. He is willing to devote resources no one else can match -- international foundations with legions of trained provacateurs and professionals with prior, successful experience in several countries; more money than God -- to the effort.
If you're a Democrat who loathes Bush, that's fine. You're entitled to that opinion. But think what it means for Soros, an avowed transnationalist directly opposed to American sovreignty, to do as he wishes to America.
Go read about what's been done in Georgia. Even if you're sympathetic, imagine if a Saddam Hussein, or a King Fahd, or Communist China, decided to do the same thing.
We should be very, very concerned and this story needs a higher profile, fast.
