Once upon a time in America , truth was an absolute defense to any charge of libel or slander.  Indeed, the whole point of trials and open-court litigation was pursuit of the truth.  No more.  Trust me - I'm a lawyer (said with a straight face, too).

Throughout my career as a trial lawyer, always I have given the following advice to my clients, be they plaintiffs or defendants:  "Just tell the truth.  Then you never have to worry about what to say or what you already might have said."  Whenever a client then has lied during the course of a case and refused to let me tell the other side and do my best to compensate for that lie, that client has had to find a new lawyer on the spot.  Admittedly, mine is a minority opinion in a profession that richly deserves all that is said about it.  

Nowadays, though I still insist upon the truth (call it a weakness), I tell my clients that likely it is irrelevant what they say.  Of course, most of my clients these days are politically incorrect.  As I have pointed out at length elsewhere (see "Injustice for All," for example), there simply is no justice to be obtained for the politically incorrect in America these days.

Increasingly, litigation simply is window dressing, especially criminal litigation.  Particularly when it involves politically-incorrect defendants.  Many procedural and substantive reasons exist for the loss of truth and justice, such as media vilification and prosecutorial misconduct (beginning with gross overcharging), but they serve merely to mask the true objective:  silencing dissenters through the exercise of power simply because that power is available.

Used to be, we considered the role of truth merely when a legal case already existed.  Today, simply telling the truth can get you put in an American jail.  And it is about to get worse.  Much  worse.

America has crossed the line into the prosecution of pure thought crimes and there will be no turning back without a revolution.  Yes, it is because of the Jews.  Hear me out, please.  You need to understand what I am about to tell you.  You needn't agree just yet, but you really need to understand the rationale.

Many ask why I so condemn the Jews.  In truth, it is a minority of Jews to whom I really object:  the Jewish supremacists.  

If you feel negatively about White supremacism, then merely imagine that same concept, but from the point of view of the oppressed in Palestine ; that's Jewish supremacism, also known as Zionism these days.  Through silence, the rest of the Jews let the Zionists get away with their brand of supremacism; they allow the transgressors to fall back into their ranks and hide behind the hurled epithet of "antiSemite."  

Those who stand silently and wait also serve, as they say, so the Jewish bystanders properly are charged with the crimes of their supremacist brethren.  That is why I rail against Jews, not just Zionists.

Jews really do run most of the world.  Certainly, all the Western world.  If you do not agree with this, then you need to do some basic spadework, work that is beyond the scope of this piece you are reading.  It is so obvious, once you are willing to see it.  

All the power positions in government, both here and abroad, are occupied by Jews, generally with only the head of state not being a Jew.  The media, virtually every last little scrap of it, is owned and managed by Jews.  Most of business is owned and/or controlled by Jews.  The recent transfer of ownership of the Russian oil empire known as Yukos to the Rothschild family, because the owner was indicted for corruption and fraud, illustrates how true Jewish business ownership exists in many cases without being at all apparent.  

The central banks, especially the US Federal Reserve Bank (which is neither Federal nor has any reserves) are owned and operated by Jews.  Again, Rothschild is a major player, even in ownership of the US Federal Reserve Bank.

The legal and medical professions have been taken over.  These, and more, are facts.  Cold, hard, unassailable facts.  But they are facts that are unprintable, because they involve Jews.

Yet, when Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir recently said the world is run by Jews by proxy (that is, through their goyim puppets), he was roundly condemned.  And what he said was called a lie by Israel , where a furor erupted.  You may recall that Israeli Prime Minister Sharon has said, "We, the Jewish people, control America , and the Americans know it."   (Tar Baby II)  Why do you suppose was it necessary for the American President, of all people, to denounce Mahathir?  If not acting at Jewish direction, why would Bush II even care?  Mahathir told the truth, after all.  Problem is, the truth involved Jews.

America outlaws boycotting the products of only one country in the world:  Israel .  And that law is enforced, as Cook Composites and Polymers Company recently found out.  Cook was fined $6,000 merely for responding "to a request from a customer in Bahrain ...stating that the goods being shipped were not of Israeli origin and did not contain Israeli  materials."  (North Kansas City company settles charge related to boycott of Israel, Kansas City Star, June 25, 2003 )  Again, merely telling the truth runs afoul of the law, when the truth involves Jews.  And, as this boycott law blatantly shows, it is the truth about only a single ethnic group that counts:  Jews.

Enter Historical Revisionism, the quest to set the record straight.  During war, governments issue some of the most ridiculous statements and push them as fact, in order to get their citizens on board with their current war effort.  The American claim during Baghdad I that Iraqi soldiers stole a Kuwait hospital's incubators, leaving babies to die on the cold tile floors, is a particularly egregious recent example.  It could have been a scene from "Wag the Dog," it was so outlandishly false, as since admitted by officials.  The idea was to get Americans behind the effort to intercede in the Middle East .  It worked.  Problem is, the story still occasionally surfaces and gets passed around.

Historical Revisionists endeavor to get history written correctly.  Currently, their main effort concerns World War II and the propaganda pushed, first, to get America into the war and, later, to keep it there until its bloody end.  That propaganda has endured and grown, in fact, turning into a major industry, the main purpose of which is to advance Zionist interests.  

Even though the stories about lampshades made from human skin and soap rendered from the fat of Jewish victims have been as thoroughly debunked as the Kuwaiti baby incubator fable, they still occasionally bubble to the surface.

The lies about the gas chambers and the ovens have only partially been revealed.  Similarly, though Jewish historians themselves admit that far fewer perished, the myth that 6,000,000 Jews perished in German concentration camps persists and is actively promoted at all levels of society.

A side note:  outlandish claims of Jewish casualties is nothing new.  They claimed 6,000,000 in WWI, too, believe it or not.  And, as historian/journalist Michael Hoffman has pointed out:  “There are two early 'Holocaust' tales from the Talmud.  Gittin 57b. claims that four billion Jews were killed by the Romans in the city of Bethar .  Gittin 58a claims that 16 million Jewish children were wrapped in scrolls and burned alive by the Romans."  Judaism's Strange Gods, Michael Hoffman (Independent History, 2000) The Bible abounds with outlandish claims of Jewish casualties, as well.

Publicly challenging Jewish "Holocaust" claims will lead to a prison sentence in most Western countries.  And truth is no defense.  The mere revealing of the lies and their machinations is deemed antiSemitic, you see.  In fact, attempting to defend oneself against these charges in court, once one is charged in some countries, such as Germany , will result in fresh charges being filed.  Yes, you read that last sentence correctly.  Repeating the offensive statements in court is a separate offense!

The Jewish ADL (AntiDefamation League) has been instrumental in getting hate crime laws passed in most of America 's states.  Now they endeavor to convert those laws into pure hate speech laws, as now exist in Canada and most of Western Europe .  Already, the American laws are perverted to punish mere speech, but that is not enough.  Once speech itself, with no accompanying crime, becomes formally illegal in America , then eradication of truth as a defense will follow, as it has in Canada and Western Europe .  And it will be the truth concerning a single ethnic group that will be most disallowed, of course:  Jews.

You needn't believe just me that Jews are special when it comes to suppressing the truth.  Listen to none other than America 's Attorney General, John Ashcroft, as he prostrates himself before the ADL:  "Ninety years ago, the founders of the Anti-Defamation League dedicated themselves to the noblest ideals. They vowed to use their time, their energy, and their earnings to stand against intolerance and to stand for freedom...This administration believes that acts of anti-Semitism must be confronted, condemned, and denounced...As history shows, verbal attacks on the Jewish people are portends (sic) of more savage criminality to come...The ADL has proven time and again its ability to warn of the dangers to the innocent when the good and truehearted do not band together to oppose hate."  Prepared Remarks to the ADL of Attorney General Ashcroft, New York , New York , November 7, 2003

And Ashcroft's is not a lone voice in the Administration, either.  FBI Director Mueller pandered to the ADL at its 24th Annual National Leadership Conference in May of 2002:  "I have long admired and respected the work of ADL, and I appreciate your longstanding support of the FBI.  I know that under my predecessor, Louis Freeh, this partnership reached new heights...I am absolutely committed to building on that relationship." 

This is the same ADL, by the way, that has been adjudged guilty of massive theft and illegality in assembling a computerized database of Americans it dislikes.  And this is the same FBI that busted the ADL in 1993, a bust which led to the judicial ruling that the ADL violated a number of state and Federal laws when it stole data from a variety of government offices, including the FBI itself. 

They steal from the government, yet that same government then turns around and praises the ADL and the partnership it has with one of the very agencies from which it stole!  Meanwhile, it is just business as usual for the ADL and the Jewish interests it advances.

It should not go unnoticed, either, that the guy who was responsible for the ridiculous prosecutions of so many white American dissidents lately, Michael Chertoff, is a Zionist who, as Director of the US Justice Department's Criminal Division, directed the efforts of the FBI for Ashcroft.

Clearly, the Jews are getting their way in America , as they have in

Canada and Western Europe ; just as they did in Russia early last century.  Today, of all Western Countries, only in America can I get away with writing this article.  However, even in America I get roundly condemned and widely censored … for telling the truth...about Jews.

Bush II has proven himself to be nothing but a water carrier for Zionism.  With the eight original Democrat Presidential candidates each being either Jewish or married to a Jew, it is clear that there will be no change in the upcoming election.  Some choice, huh?  Things will only get worse.  Making Bush a one-termer (inevitable now, I believe) merely will provide the illusion of "throwing the rascals out."

Tomorrow I will be unable to bring these truths to you.  Tomorrow I will be imprisoned, or worse, for even trying to do so.  So will you.  Already, tomorrow has come to Canada and Western Europe .

Consider what the day after tomorrow might bring. Are you getting mad yet?  I am, and I'm not alone. It is time. Time for a change. New America . An idea whose time has come.


"I didn't say it would be easy.  I just said it would be the truth."

Toben’s website may be in breach

Australian Jewish News - 5 March 2004

JEWISH community leaders are investigating whether Holocaust revisionist Dr Fredrick Toben has breached a court order instructing him to remove any material from his website which suggests that the Holocaust did not occur.

At the time of going to press, the front page of Dr Toben’s Adelaide Institute website stated: “Why are we forced to believe in the 'Holocaust’? I don’t want to believe in the 'Holocaust’! Why is it a crime not to believe in the 'Holocaust’? Why is it a crime to say the 'Holocaust’ never happened?”

In a landmark decision last July, the Federal Court ordered Dr Toben to delete any material suggesting that the Holocaust did not take place and that there were no gas chambers at Auschwitz .
It also ordered him to remove material which was likely to “offend, insult, humiliate and intimidate” Australian Jews and not to republish it.

The case was brought by the Executive Council of Australian Jewry (ECAJ).

Weighing up how to respond to the latest inclusions on the website, the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies and ECAJ are considering “whether it amounts to a breach of the orders already made”, or whether “separate proceedings” should be instituted, board president and senior counsel Stephen Rothman said this week.

Töben responds:

Is asking questions a crime for some?

Is making statements that incite hatred against Germans for some an Unquestionable RIGHT?

For example any 'Holocaust' statement made is a direct attack on Germans because it alleges that Germans were responsible for

1. the death of six million Jews

2. used homicidal gas chambers to exterminate Jews, and

3. Hitler ordered a German national policy that Jews be exterminated –

solely for Jews being Jews.

I am not permitted to discuss these matter because I have a gag order from the Federal Court of Australia that prevents me from detailing my views, but anyone else is permitted to state that Germans did all those things.

Natural Justice, where art though in this moment of need when Stephen Rothman again needs a sacrifice and possibly seeks his pound of flesh!

Auschwitz ashes to be buried in Melbourne

ASHES recovered from one of the Holocaust’s worst killing fields on behalf of Melbourne’s Jewish Holocaust Museum and Research Centre in the late 1980s will finally be “laid to rest” next month at Springvale cemetery.
Actress Ann Morell, now Morell-Crawford, and her husband Glen Crawford, originally from
Melbourne , brought the Auschwitz ashes, now contained in a small rectangular box, back to Melbourne

at the request of the museum’s inaugural president, the late Aron Sokolowicz.

The couple had visited the Elsternwick museum to obtain contacts for a documentary they were planning to make on Polish children’s writer Janusz Korczak — who ran an orphanage for 200 Jewish children in the Warsaw Ghetto before they subsequently perished in Treblinka — when Sokolowicz handed them a letter requesting the ashes.

According to a report in the Sunday Age last week, Morell-Crawford and her husband carefully hid the box of ashes in their luggage and undertook an arduous journey through Europe and back to Australia .

“At that time, when the Berlin Wall was up and Eastern Europe was under communism, the border guards regarded any westerner with paranoia,” Morell-Crawford told the Sunday Age. “Believing something as sensitive and precious as the ashes would be confiscated, buried under miles of red tape or we would be detained, we smuggled them over various checkpoints.”

Torment of the Abba star with a Nazi father
The Observer International  |
Sunday June 30, 2002 | Kate Connolly

Anni-Frid was persecuted as a child of the 'master race', reports Kate Connolly. Now people like her want justice.

When Abba sang 'Knowing Me, Knowing You', there was one member of the cult Swedish pop group for whom it had a special meaning. The brunette Anni-Frid Lyngstad is one of thousands of people who grew up in Scandinavia shunned, persecuted and parentless. It is alleged that some were even used as guinea pigs in drugs trials.

Known as the Tyskerbarnas or German children, they were the offspring of Norwegian mothers and German soldier fathers, the result of a Nazi plan to 'enrich' the Aryan gene pool.

Now the group of up to 12,000, of whom many are now in their sixties, plans to fight for compensation in the European Court of Human Rights.

Anni-Frid Lyngstad's story is typical of the suffering of thousands. After her birth in November 1945 - the result of a liaison between her mother, Synni, and a German sergeant, Alfred Haase - the infant's mother and grandmother were branded as traitors and ostracised in their village in northern Norway . They were forced to emigrate to Sweden , where Anni-Frid's mother died of kidney failure before her daughter was two.

The child found her father by chance three decades later. They met for an emotional reunion in her Swedish villa, instigated by Benny Anderson, an Abba founder and Anni-Frid's then husband.

Afterwards, the singer said of the meeting and her father: 'It's difficult... it would have been different if I'd been a teenager or a child. I can't really connect to him and love him the way I would have if he'd been around when I grew up.' The depression she subsequently suffered was attributed by friends to the delayed encounter with her long-

lost father, a retired pastry cook.

The somewhat morose Anni-Frid, who withdrew for years in Greta Garbo style, is nevertheless viewed as something of a role model by her fellow Tyskerbarnas still living in Norway .

'She's achieved amazing things in Sweden , something she would never have been able to do had she stayed in Norway , where she would have been branded a freak,' says Tor Brandacher, 63, spokesman for the organisation representing the children. Founded in 1999, the group, Krigsbarnforbundet Lebensborn, or Source of Life, takes its name from the scheme run by Heinrich Himmler, the leader of Hitler's feared SS, to create a master race.

It has been pursuing its claims for compensation for abuse and discrimination through the domestic courts. The case, involving 122 people, argues that the wartime Norwegian government - led by the notorious Quisling - was complicit in the Nazi scheme to breed with blonde, blue-eyed Norse women. The government asserts that if crimes were committed, they happened too long ago to be dealt with now.

The case is now going to the country's Supreme Court, but the victims and their families are preparing to take it to the European Court of Human Rights. 'Having been rejected by Norway so far, we have little choice but to take our case further afield,' says Brandacher. 'We see Norway as a rundown gas station in comparison to the gleaming motorway service station that is the ECHR in Strasbourg ,' says a hopeful Brandacher, himself the son of an Austrian elite Gebirgsjäger soldier. He says the Norwegian government is likely to face huge embarrassment once the case receives full international attention.

Most of the Lebensborn children

who stayed in Norway are social misfits. Few have received proper education or been employed. 'It's typical that they've suffered from depression and low self-esteem,' says their lawyer, Randi Hagen Spydevold. 'Most have had problems forming relationships or being able to relate to the real world, which is hardly surprising when you've spent your formative years being called a German idiot, a no-good bastard who doesn't deserve to be alive.'

Had Germany won the war, they would almost certainly have been heroes. But Germany lost, and soon afterwards the Norwegian mothers lost their status, and their children were classified as 'rats' by government officials.

The postwar hatred towards the offspring of German soldiers was so great that government psychologists commissioned to report on the children and their mothers concluded that women who had fraternised with Germans were 'of limited talent and asocial psychopaths, some of them seriously backward'.

The verdict 'father was a German' was indictment enough to send children to mental hospitals, where many were tortured and raped. They were deemed to be dangerous because of their 'Nazi genes' and capable of forming a fascist fifth column.

Quisling's government was desperate to be rid of the problem and attempted to send the Tyskerbarnas as far afield as Brazil and Australia . Sweden was praised for taking several hundred and thus relieving Norway of an embarrassing 'problem'. Around 250 were sent 'back' to Germany .

Many thousands of their mothers - labelled 'German whores' - were sent to Norwegian 'concentration camps', where they were virtually slave labourers. Of those children who ended up scattered around 128 Norwegian children's homes, many were released from their virtual prisons as bewildered adults only in the early Sixties into a world of which they had little or no experience.

When her case comes before the supreme court, Spydevold has as one of her witnesses a highly-experienced judge who will testify that a high percentage of the criminals he has seen have been the result of the Lebensborn experiment. 'He will testify that through the Norwegian government's neglect of them, many turned to crime,' Spydevold told The Observer.

But in many ways the most shocking aspect of the whole story is what happened to the children in the homes. In a separate case, Spydevold is attempting to bring the Norwegian government to task over documented evidence of drugs trials carried out on both children and mothers. Witnesses and documents say experiments with LSD, mescaline and other substances were initiated by the Norwegian military, Oslo University and the CIA.

For Harriet von Nickel, born in March 1942, the road to justice is long but worthwhile. 'As a two-year-old living with foster parents, I was chained up with the dog in the yard,' she says in German Child, her best-selling autobiography.

'As a six-year-old I was thrown in the river by a man from my village, who said he wanted to see if "the witch will drown or float",' she writes. At the age of nine or 10, she says, drunken villagers from Bursr, near Trondheim , branded her forehead with a swastika made of bent nails, and threatened to rape her. 'A woman saved me, and I rubbed sandpaper on my skin to get rid of the swastika.'


Money King Soros’ World Revolution

George Soros: Imperial Wizard/Double Agent

by Heather Cottin, from Western Destiny, No 34, February 2004

“There does exist, and has exited for a generation, an international network, which has no aversion to co-operating with communists, or any other groups, and frequently does so. I know the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years, and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s to examine its papers and secret records… It is this power structure which the Radical Right in the US has been attacking for years in the belief that they were attacking the Communists…”

Prof. Carroll Quigley, foremost American historian, Tragedy & Hope, MacMillan, NY, 1966.


“There is no proletarian, not even a communist, movement that has not operated in the interests of money, and for the time permitted by money – and that without the idealists amongst its leaders having the slightest suspicion of the fact.”

Oswald Spengler, The Decline of The West, 1918

The following article, apparently by a Leftist, albeit non-liberal, of some persuasion, provides a well documented background on the subversive nature of George Soros’ global machinations. Here we see Soros as the money bags for numerous – often Left/liberal, movement and individuals – pushing revolution and subversion under the name of humanitarianism, human rights, and democracy. Like the anti-apartheid offensive directed against South Africa , which merely resulted in the globalisation and privatisation of the SA economy, the Left can be seen in its historic role as lackey’s of plutocracy. We have added emphasis and comments.

Soros’ “open society” revolutions in true capitalistic fashion, are directed against traditional societies, and the network of Soros foundations fund feminism and abortion rights, warding off any moves to re-establish traditional, religious based societies among Orthodox East Europeans and Muslims, especially in the former Soviet region. Karl Marx would have been encouraged, having stated in the Communist Manifesto and elsewhere, that Free Trade is a subversive doctrine undermining tradition and nationalism. Further information on this is contained in our own booklet Useful Idiots of the New World Order.

The New Left in the United States was a social democratic movement.  It was resolutely anti-Soviet, and when Eastern Europe and the USSR fell, few in the New Left opposed the destruction of the socialist systems. The New Left did not mourn or protest when the hundreds of millions in Eastern Europe and Central Asia lost their right to jobs, housing at reasonable and legally protected rents, free education through graduate school, health care and cultural enhancement. Most belittled any suggestion that the CIA and certain NGOs such as the National Endowment for Democracy or the Open Society Fund had actively participated in the annihilation of socialism. These people felt that the Western determination to destroy the USSR since 1917 was barely connected to the fall of the USSR . For them, socialism failed of its own accord, because it was flawed.

[The New Left was Trotskyite in outlook. What was objectionable to them was that socialism proceeded along nationalistic lines in the Soviet bloc since the time Stalin eliminated Trotsky and his concept of world revolution. These Trotskyites, motivated primarily by a hatred of a Trotsky-free USSR , joined in large numbers the American Establishment in attacking the USSR . Leading Trotskyites including Prof. Sidney Hook and James Burnham, became proponents of the Cold War against the USSR . Prof. Hook was honoured by the Reagan Administration whilst insisting he never reneged on his Trotskyite beliefs. These Establishment Bolsheviks led the CIA front, the Congress for Cultural Freedom which sponsored much of the cultural junk that subverted Western traditional culture.

Ms Cottin errs in her belief that “the West” had sought to destroy the USSR since 1917. Rather the USA under the banker controlled Wilson Administration ensured the survival of the USSR when Lenin and Trotsky were fighting for their survival against the White Armies. Wilson pushed for the recognition of the Bolshevik Government at the Paris Peace Conference, at a time when the Soviets controlled little of Russia . American troops were under orders form Wilson himself NOT to intervene on behalf of the White Armies. Rather, American troops were stationed at Vladivostock to maintain order until the Bolsheviks could take over government. The Vladivostock Soviet praised the US forces and thanked them for their assistance, according to a report in the NY Times, Feb. 15, 1920 . “ Vladivostok pro-American, Revolutionist staff thanks [Gen.] Graves for preserving neutrality” runs the headline. The Roosevelt Admin. adopted a pro-Stalin policy for the duration of the war against the Axis and hoped the alliance would continue to build a post-war New World Order via the UNO. Stalin scuttled the globalist scheme by insisting on Security Council vetoes in the UNO and rejecting the Baruch Plan for the “internationalisation of nuclear energy”. Stalin correctly viewed both schemes as methods of ensuring American global domination. The Cold War was the result. The so-called ‘neo-cons’ who dominate the Bush Admin. are descended from these Trotskyite Establishment Bolsheviks and are far from “conservatives”. These are the coterie with which Soros is working. See our booklet America , Russia & the New World Order.].

As revolutions, such as the ones in Mozambique , Angola , Nicaragua or El Salvador were destroyed by proxy forces or were stalled by demonstration “elections,” New Left pragmatists shrugged their shoulders and turned away. The New Left sometimes seemed to deliberately ignore the post-Soviet machinations of U.S. foreign policy.

[The “New Left”, like the Trotskyite Old Left, was spawned by the American Establishment. Feminists such as Gloria Steinem were sponsored by the CIA, as was drug culture guru Timothy Leary. The SDS emerged from the CIA funded National Students Association. See our booklet, Useful Iidiots…].

Bogdan Denitch, who had political aspirations in Croatia, was active within the Open Society Institute, and received OSI funding. 36 Denitch favored the ethnic cleansing of Serbs from Croatia , NATO bombing of Bosnia and then Yugoslavia , and even a ground invasion of Yugoslavia . 37 Denitch was a founder and chair for many years of the Democratic Socialists of America , a leading liberal-left group in the U.S. He has also long chaired the prestigious Socialist Scholars Conference, through which he was key to manipulating the sympathies of many toward support for NATO expansion. 38

Other Soros targets for support include Refuse and Resist, the ACLU, and a host of other liberal causes. 39 Soros added another unlikely trophy when he became involved in the New School for Social Research in New York, long an academy of choice for left intellectuals. He now funds the East and Central Europe Program there.40

[The New School for Social Research was a typically banker funded Left-wing institution from which has emerged what is now known as Political Correctness, a mutation of Bolshevism of service to the plutocrats in the guise of ‘radicalism’ and ‘progress’. Most of the funding for the New School has come from the Rockefeller foundation. See our Useful Idiots…].

Many leftists who were inspired by the revolution in Nicaragua sadly accepted the election of Violetta Chamorro and the defeat of the Sandinistas in 1990. Most of the Nicaragua support network faded thereafter. Perhaps the New Left could have learned from the rising star of Michael Kozak. He was a veteran of Washington ’s campaigns to install sympathetic leaders in Nicaragua , Panama and Haiti , and to undermine Cuba - he headed the U.S. Interests Section in Havana .

After organizing the Chamorro victory in Nicaragua , Kozak moved on to become U.S. Ambassador to Belarus . Kozak worked with the Soros-sponsored “Internet Access and Training Program” (IATP), which was busy “creating future leaders” in Belarus . 41 This program was simultaneously imposed upon Armenia , Azerbaijan , Georgia , Kazakhstan , Kyrgystan , Turkmenistan , and Uzbekistan . IATP operates openly with the support of the U.S.   Department of State. To its credit, Belarus expelled Kozak and the Soros-Open Society/U.S. State Department crowd. The government of Aleksandr Lukashenko found that for four years before moving to Minsk , Kozak was instrumental in engineering the flow of tens of millions of dollars to the Belarus opposition. Kozak was creating a united opposition coalition, funding web-sites, newspapers and opinion polls, and tutoring a student resistance movement similar to Yugoslavia ’s Otpor. Kozak brought in Otpor leaders to instruct dissidents in Belarus .  42 Just before September 11, 2001 , the U.S. was revving up a demonization campaign against President Aleksandr Lukashenko. Demonizing Lukashenko has temporarily taken a back burner to the “war on terrorism.”

Through OSI and HRW, Soros was a major supporter of the B-92 radio station in Belgrade . Soros funded Otpor, the organization that received those “suitcases of money” in support of the October 5, 2000 coup that toppled the Yugoslav government. 43 Human Rights Watch helped legitimize the subsequent kidnapping and show trial of Slobodan Milosevic in The Hague by saying nothing about his rights.” 44 Louise Arbour, who served as judge at that illegal tribunal, is presently on the Board of Soros’ International Crisis Group. 45 The Open Society/Human Rights Watch gang has been working on Macedonia , calling it part of their “civilizing mission.” 46 Expect that republic to be “saved” to finish the total disintegration of the former Yugoslavia .


Soros has actually stated that he considers his philanthropy moral and his money management business amoral. 47 Yet those in charge of Soros-funded NGOs have a clear and consistent agenda. One of Soros’ most influential institutions is the International Crisis Group, founded in

1986. ICG is headed by individuals from the very center of political and corporate power. Its board includes Zbigniew Brzezinski, [founding director of David Rockefeller’s think tank, the Trilateral Commission, which sponsored Jimmy Carter’s rise to the presidency] Morton Abramowitz, former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State; Wesley Clark, former NATO Supreme Allied Commander for Europe; and Richard Allen, former U.S. National Security Adviser. Allen is noteworthy for quitting Nixon’s National Security Council out of disgust with the liberal tendencies of Henry Kissinger; recruiting Oliver North to Reagan’s National Security Council, and negotiating missiles for hostages in the Iran-Contra scandal. For these individuals, “containing conflict” boils down to U.S. control over the people and resources of the world.

In the 1980s and 1990s, under the aegis of the Reagan Doctrine, U.S.   covert and overt operations in Africa , Latin America , the Caribbean , and Asia were in the works. Soros was openly active in most of these places, working to buy off would-be revolutionaries, or subsidize politicians, intellectuals and anyone else who might come to power when the revolutionary moment had passed. According to James Petras:

“By the early 1980s the more perceptive sectors of the neoliberal ruling classes realized that their policies were polarizing the society and provoking large-scale social discontent. Neoliberal politicians began to finance and promote a parallel strategy ‘from below,’ the promotion of ‘grassroots’ organizations with an ‘anti-statist’ ideology to intervene among potentially conflictory classes, to create a “social cushion.” These organizations were financially dependent on neoliberal sources and were directly involved in competing with sociopolitical movements for the allegiance of local leaders and activist communities. By the 1990s these organizations, described as “nongovernmental,” numbered in the thousands and were receiving close to four billion dollars world-wide.”48[Soros is playing the role of Jacob Schiff, the head of Kunh Loeb & Co. who funded the revolution against Russia. ].

In Underwriting Democracy, Soros boasts about the “Americanization of Eastern Europe.” According to his account, through his education programs he began to establish a young cadre of Sorosian leaders. These Soros Foundation-educated young men and women are prepared to fulfill the functions of so-called “influence agents.” Thanks to their fluent knowledge of languages and their insertion into the emerging bureaucracies in target countries, these recruits would philosophically smooth the inroads for Western multinational corporations.

[Where Governments prove resistant, as we have seen, ‘revolutionaries’ are bought off to topple them with US connivance, under the guise of ‘democracy’].

Career diplomat Herbert Okun, on the Europe Committee of Human Rights Watch, along with George Soros, is connected to a host of State Department-linked institutions, from USAID to the Rockefeller-funded Trilateral Commission. From 1990 to 1997, Okun was executive director of something called the Financial Services Volunteer Corps, part of USAID, “to help establish free market financial systems in former communist countries.” 49 George Soros is in complete accord with the capitalists who are in the process of taking control of the global economy.


Soros claims not to do philanthropy in the countries in which he is involved as a currency trader. 50 But Soros has often taken advantage of his connections to make key investments. Armed with a study by ICC, and with the support of Bernard Kouchner, chief of the UN Interim Administration in Kosovo (UNMIK), Soros attempted to acquire the most profitable mining complex in the Balkans.

In September 2000, in a hurry to take the Trepca mines before the Yugoslavian election, Kouchner stated that pollution from the mining complex was raising lead levels in the environment. 51 This is incredible considering that he cheered when the 1999 NATO bombing of Yugoslavia rained depleted uranium on the country and released more than

100,000 tons of carcinogens into the air, water and soil. 52 But Kouchner had his way, and the mines were closed for “health reasons.”

[An e.g. of the use of ostensible ‘environmentalism’ for plutocratic purposes].

Soros invested $150 million in an effort to gain control of Trepca’s gold, silver, lead, zinc and cadmium, which make the property worth $5 billion. 53 As Bulgaria was imploding into “free-market” chaos, Soros was busy scavenging through the wreckage, as Reuters reported in early 2001:

“The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) invested $3.0 million in [Bulgarian high-tech company] Rila, the first firm to benefit from a new $30 million facility set up by the EBRD to support IT firms in central and eastern Europe.... Another $3. 0 million came from U.S private investment fund Argus Capital Partners, sponsored by Prudential Insurance Company of America and operating in central and eastern Europe... Soros, who had invested around $3.0 million in Rila and in 2001 invested another $1.0 million...remained its majority owner.” 54

In Colombia , labor leaders are routinely killed by paramilitaries working in concert with the U.S.-sponsored government. Because those unions oppose neoliberal economics, HRW [Human Rights Watch] is relatively silent. In April of this year, HRW’s Jose Vivanco testified before the U.S. Senate in favor of Plan Colombia : 55 “Colombians remain committed to human rights and democracy. They need help. Human Rights Watch has no fundamental problem with the United States providing that help.” 56 HRW equates the actions of the Colombian guerrilla fighters struggling to free themselves from the oppression of state terror, poverty and exploitation with the repression of the U.S-sponsored armed forces and paramilitary death squads, the AUC (United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia). HRW validated the Pastrana government and its military, whose role was to protect property rights and maintain the economic and political status quo. According to HRW, 50% of civilian deaths are the work of the government-tolerated death squads. 57 The correct number is 80%. 58 HRW essentially certified the election and

ascendancy of the Uribe government in 2002 as well. Uribe is a throwback to the Latin American dictators the U.S. supported in the past, although he was “elected.” HRW had no comment about the fact that the majority boycotted the election. 59

In the Caribbean Basin, Cuba is another opponent of neoliberalism that has been demonized by Human Rights Watch. ... When Sorosian organizations count, they seem to lose track of the truth. Human Rights Watch asserted that 500 people, not over 2,000, were killed by NATO bombers in the 1999 war in Yugoslavia . 65 They said only 350, not over 4,000, died as a result of U.S. attacks on Afghanistan . 66 When the U.S.   bombed Panama in 1989, HRW prefaced its report by saying that the “ouster of Manuel Noriega.. and installation of the democratically-elected government of President Guillermo Endara brought high hopes in Panama ...” The report neglected to mention the number of casualties.

Human Rights Watch prepared the groundwork for the NATO attack on Bosnia in 1993 by the false rape-of-thousands and “genocide” stories. 67 This tactic of creating political hysteria was necessary for the United States to carry out its Balkan policy. It was repeated in 1999 when HRW functioned as the shock troops of indoctrination for the NATO attack on Yugoslavia . All of Soros’ blather about the rule of law was forgotten.  The U.S. and NATO made their own law, and the institutions of George Soros stood behind it.

Massaging of numbers to provoke a response was a major part of a Council on Foreign Relations [CFR – a plutocratic think tank founded in the 1920s to provide US administrations with personnel]. campaign after September 11,2001 . This time it was the 2,801 killed in the World Trade Center . The CFR met on November 6, 2001 , to plan a “major public diplomacy campaign.” CFR created an “Independent Task Force on America ’s Response to Terrorism.” Soros joined Richard C. Holbrooke, Newton L. Gingrich, John M. Shalikashvili (former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff), and other powerful individuals on a campaign to make the Trade Center dead into tools for U.S. foreign policy. The CFR report set out to make the case for a war on terrorism. George Soros’ fingerprints were all over the campaign:

“Have senior-level U.S. officials press friendly Arab and other Muslim governments not only to publicly condemn the 9/11 attacks, but also to back the rationale and goals of the U.S. anti-terror campaign. We are never going to convince the publics in the Middle East and South Asia of the righteousness of our cause if their governments remain silent. We need to help them to deflect any blow-back from such statements, but we must have them vocally on board.... Encourage Bosnian, Albanian, and Turkish Muslims to educate foreign audiences regarding the U.S. role in saving the Muslims of Bosnia and Kosovo in 1995-99, and our long-standing, close ties to Muslims around the world. Engage regional intellectuals and journalists across the board, regardless of their views. Routinely monitor the regional press in real time to enable prompt responses... Stress references to the victims (and ideally named victims to personalize them) whenever we discuss our cause and goals.” 68 [emphasis added].

[Soros’ opposition to George Bush therefore rings hollow. It is rather a matter of image in regard to the so-called “war on terrorism” rather than substance].

Sorosian innumeracy: counting to bolster and defend U.S. foreign policy. Soros is very worried about the decline in the world capitalist system and he wants to do something about it, now. He recently said: “I can already discern the makings of the final crisis.... Indigenous political movements are likely to arise that will seek to expropriate the multinational corporations and recapture the ‘national’ wealth.” 69

[Read that quote again. Here is Soros’ agenda, and that of other plutocrats: expropriation of the resources of nations and their concentration into the hands of a global coterie].

Soros is seriously suggesting a plan to circumvent the United Nations.  He proposes that the “democracies of the world ought to take the lead and forge a global network of alliances that could work with or without the United Nations.” If he were psychotic, one might think he was having an episode. But the fact is, Soros’ assertion that “The United Nations is constitutionally incapable of fulfilling the promises contained in the preamble of its charter,” reflects the thinking of such reactionary institutions as the American Enterprise Institute. 70 Though many conservatives refer to the Soros network as left-wing, on the question of U.S. affiliation with the United Nations Soros is on the same page as the likes of John R. Bolton, Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Affairs, who, with “[M]any Republicans in Congress-believe that nothing more should be paid to the UN system.” 71 There has been a decades-long rightwing campaign against the UN. Now Soros is leading it.

[Ms Cottin should also dig a bit further on the UNO. She would find that it was founded by plutocrats for the purpose of establishing a New World Order. Most of the planning personnel were drawn from the CFR and the land for the UNO building was donated by the Rockefellers. The UNO was set up with precisely the same humanitarian façade as that now used by Soros to promote his plutocratic revolutions. The plan to use the UNO as an instrument for world government was scuttled by Stalin who insisted on Soviet nationalist and imperial interests].

Shevardnadze accuses Soros of organising a coup d’etat in Georgia

Former President of Georgia Eduard Shevardnadze has accused American financier George Soros of organising the events that led to the coup d’etat in that Caucasian republic. “This is his plan,” said Shevardnadze in the “News of the Week” programme on the Rossia TV channel. According to him, Soros has formulated “a whole concept how to hold elections so that new people come to the government, and how to found such organisations as in Yugoslavia .” “This is the plan of Soros. He provided for everything: how much money is necessary, what government organisations are reliable, with whom it is necessary to cooperate,” said he. Shevardnadze reminded the audience that one of the American organisations got access to the lists of the constituents compiled by the municipal authorities of Georgia . After that many names disappeared from the lists, said the ex-President. “You have driven him (Soros) away from Russia , and you were right. His behaviour is not good. He should not poke his nose into politics in general,” he added.
