George Soros' Predatory Worldview

George Soros' Predatory Worldview

by Stephen Lendman

He's a world class confidence man. He's a multi-billionaire predatory investor.

He's a new world order corporate pirate. He's known for rogue investing. He's made billions from human misery.

He cashes in irresponsibly. He'll do anything for greater profits. He does so from imperial wars. He gains hugely from financial ones. He uses wealth to accumulate more of it.

In late April, the New York Review of Books headlined "The Future of Europe: An Interview with George Soros." Der Spiegel correspondent Gregor Peter Schmitz conducted it.

Ukraine was discussed. Soros called Russia an "emerging…big geopolitical player…" EU nations have "a resurgent rival on (their) east," he said.

Putin enjoys overwhelming popularity. It exceeds 80%. Soros ludicrously claimed he "lead(s) from a position of weakness."

He lied saying he's "repressive at home and aggressive abroad." He irresponsibly blamed Bashar al-Assad for US-sponsored death squads' use of chemical weapons.

Lies infested his commentary. They reveal his dark side. He ludicrously claimed US-manipulated Maidan violence erupted "spontaneous(ly)."

He urged Western unity "in response to Russian aggression in Ukraine." He claims Obama represents responsible US leadership.

Putin is a master geopolitical strategist. Not according to Soros. He "woefully misjudged the situation," he said. He turned truth on its head claiming it.

Ukrainians rebelled, he said. He ignored Washington-manipulated Maidan violence. US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland was caught red-handed. More on this below.

She's hardcore neocon. She's a career foreign service officer. She's worked with Democrat and Republican administrations.

Early in her career, she covered Russian internal politics at Washington's Moscow embassy.

She served on the Soviet Desk in Washington. She worked in the State Department's Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs. She served in Guangzhou, China.

She was Deputy to the Ambassador-at-Large for the Newly Independent States of the former Soviet Union. She directed a task force on Russia, its neighbors and an expanding NATO.

She was Clinton's Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott's chief of staff. She was Deputy Permanent Representative to NATO.

She was Dick Cheney's Principal Deputy National Security Advisor. She was Permanent US Representative to NATO.

She was a National War College faculty member. She was Obama's Special Envoy for Conventional Armed Forces in Europe.

On September 18, 2013, she was appointed Assistant Secretary of State for European and European Affairs.

Her husband is Project for the New American Century (PNAC) co-founder Robert Kagan. He's a neocon foreign policy theorist/hardliner.

He advised John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign. He served on Hillary Clinton's Foreign Affairs Policy Board.

The Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI) is PNAC's current incarnation. He's a board of directors member. He represents the worst of America's dark side. So does Nuland.

She supports regime change. She backed neo-fascist governance replacing Ukrainian democracy.

She admitted Washington spending over $5 billion toppling democratically elected Viktor Yanukovych from power.

Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet said anti-government elements were involved. Yanukovych was wrongfully blamed.

He and EU foreign policy Catherine Ashton spoke.

They were monitored. They didn't know at the time. Their discussion was leaked.

Paet talked to Ashton after returning from Kiev, he said. "At the time, (he) was already in Estonia," he added.

On February 26, he held a press conference. He issued a statement saying Euromaidan killings demand an independent investigation.

Estonia's Foreign Ministry confirmed the leaked phone call's authenticity.

"We reject the claim that Paet was giving an assessment of the opposition's involvement in the violence," it stressed.

It's impossible misinterpreting what he meant.

He only commented on what he heard in Kiev. He spilled the beans. Intentionally or not, he confirmed what's clear hard truth.

Ukraine's legitimate President Viktor Yanukovych was wrongfully blamed. He had nothing to do with Euromaidan killings.

The operation was a classic false flag. It was staged to blame him. It's now exposed.

Cui bono matters most. Yanukovych's involvement had everything to lose and nothing to gain.

At the times, Catherine Ashton's spokesperson, Maja Kocijancic, was silent. "(W)e don't comment on leaked phone conversations," she said.

Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) officials loyal to Yanukovych reportedly hacked phones used by Paet and Ashton. They uploaded what they heard online.

Paet was heard saying "there is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovyich, but it was somebody from the new coalition."

"All the evidence shows" they were shooting at people from both sides. They targeted police and protesters. Yanukovych was wrongfully blamed.

Paet spoke to Kiev doctor Olga Bogomolets. She's a Bogomolets National Medical University professor.

She said snipers shot protesters and police. Paet called Dr. Bogomolets' evidence "quite disturbing."

She showed him photos. They revealed "the same handwriting, the same type of bullets, and it's really disturbing that now the new coalition, that they don't want to investigate what exactly happened," said Paet.

He blamed putschists for cover-up. They refuse to investigate, he said. They want evidence suppressed.

Snipers were neo-Nazi hitmen. Yanukovych and others in his government had no involvement.

Ashton was nonplussed. She was tongue-tied. She was caught red-handed. She was part of the dirty scheme to oust him.

She reacted saying: "Well, yeah...that's, that's terrible. I think we do want to investigate."

"I mean, I didn't pick that up. That's interesting. Gosh." All-out efforts buried the story. Media scoundrels ignored it.

It should have been featured. Big Lies drown out truth. They repeat with disturbing regularity. They shock the conscience of people wanting responsible journalism.

Alternative spaces alone provide it. Savvy news, information, and opinion seekers turn there in increasing numbers. It's the only way to get what scoundrel media ignore.

On March 12, 2014 former Ukrainian Security Service head Aleksandr Yakimenko confirmed Paet's assessment. He blamed putschist official Andrey Parubiy.

He's a neo-Nazi Svoboda party leader. He heads National Security. He's coup-appointed. He has no legitimacy whatever. Nor do other putschists.

"Shots came from the Philharmonic Hall," said Yakimenko. "Maidan Commandant Parubiy was responsible for this building."

"Snipers and people with automatic weapons were 'working' from this building on February 20. They supported the assault on the Interior Ministry forces on the ground who were already demoralized and had, in fact, fled," he added.

"When the first wave of shootings ended, many have witnessed 20 people leaving the building."

They were carrying military-style bags used for sniper and assault rifles with optical sights.

Many witnesses saw them. Foreign elements may have been involved. Perhaps CIA, US special forces, and secret service operatives.

What happened was well planned in advance. Washington's dirty hands were involved.

"These were the forces that carried out everything that they were told by their leadership - the United States," Yakimenko stressed.

Maidan leaders practically lived at Washington's embassy, he added. As security chief, he was ready to order Ukrainian troops to enter the building and remove the snipers, he said.

He needed approval from Parubiy to do it, he explained. Otherwise, so-called "self-defense" elements would have attacked him, he believes.

"Parubiy did not give such consent," he said. He controlled access to weapons used in Independence Square.

US-instigated coup changed things. Ukrainian freedom died. Fascist extremism replaced it. Don't expect Soros to explain.

He supports what demands denunciation. He profits hugely from geopolitical crises.

He absurdly called ongoing Ukrainian crisis conditions Putin's "Achilles heel."

Nonexistent "spontaneous rebellion did not enter into his calculations." He lied claiming Putin's worldview is power politics.

"(T)hose in power can easily manipulate public opinion," he said. "Failure to control the people is a sign of weakness," he added.

Putin made Russian financial assistance conditional on Yanukovych "repress(ing) rebellion," he claimed.

Yanukovych went all-out to resolve things diplomatically. Before US-manipulated putschists ousted him, he "announc(ed) steps needed to restore peace and avoid further victims of the standoff," he said.

"There are no steps we should demur from taking together in order to restore peace to Ukraine," he stressed.

He "declare(d) the initiation of early presidential elections. (He) invoke(d) a return to the Constitution of 2004 with the redistribution of powers in the direction of a parliamentary republic."

He "summon(ed) to begin formation of the government of national trust."

He offered far more than needed to resolve things. He was ousted from power lawlessly. It came straightaway after extending an olive branch responsibly.

Washington's dirty hands bore full responsibility. Rogue EU partners shared it. Fascist putschists were elevated to power. They have no legitimacy whatever.

Don't expect Soros to explain. He hopes to cash in big. He profits from crisis conditions. He spends millions instigating them. He benefits from human misery.

He once said: "As a market participant, I don't need to be concerned with the consequences of my actions."

He made billions from global havoc. He operates roguishly for a buck. He opposed Bush over tactics. Ideologically they're two sides of the same coin.

He supports hot wars. He endorses financial ones. He took credit for Americanizing Eastern Europe. He helped instigate Yugoslavia's balkanization.

He deplores democracy. He spends millions aiding elements crushing it. He seeks new global profit opportunities. Ukraine is Exhibit A.

He wants it strip-mined for profit. He wants its resources plundered. He wants its people exploited.

He wants unrestricted market access. He supports mass layoffs, deregulation, deep social spending cuts, sub-poverty wages, workers turned into serfs, trade unionism crushed, corporate friendly tax cuts, and harsh crackdowns on nonbelievers.

He called elevated coup-appointed officials to power "the birth of a nation." In "direct response to foreign oppression," he added.

He irresponsibly accused Russia of invading Crimea. Ukraine's future "depends on how Western powers…respond," he said. He wants Ukraine strengthed.

He want coup-appointed putschists supported. He favors large scale technical and financial assistance. He backs IMF-imposed diktats.

Imposing them assures protracted Greek-style Depression conditions. It guarantees hollowing out Ukraine's economy. It promises wrecking it altogether.

It provides Soros and likeminded predators with huge profit opportunities. It does so at the expense of popular interests.

It bears repeating. He profits hugely from human misery.

"Ukraine is a potentially attractive investment destination," he said. Its "potential" requires corporate friendly policies. It demands impoverishing poor Peter to benefit rich Paul.

Years earlier, Soros said "(w)e need a global sheriff" to enforce policy. Maybe he had himself in mind.
