September 11, 2001 was a day deeply etched into the psyche of the American mind. It brought this country together like no other time in the past. For George Soros, it had a completely different meaning. To Soros, it showed that foreign policy under Clinton, Bush and even in the Obama presidency was arrogant and led to anti-American hatred across the globe.
Soros himself had decided Bush was “evil” for no other reason than that he called our enemies “evil”. Bush also expressed exceptionalism in the American way of governing and in the country in general.
Where the American people tended to demonize the terrorists, Soros was of the impression that it was economic inequality and exploitation of the poor countries by the elites, of which Soros was one, that led to the attack on 9/11.
These views are also part of Obama’s way of thinking. Marie Harf, State Department spokeswoman at the time, declared that what the terrorists needed were jobs.
Soros perceived that America could maintain her position of power by mandating a global “War on Poverty” based on the Great Society programs of Lyndon Johnson of the 1960’s. Soros called upon the “rich countries” to further boost the international assistance given to alleviate international extremism.
According to Soros, there is a “a growing inequality between rich and poor within countries themselves” that must be addressed.
After the invasion of Iraq, which Soros found appalling, he hired a former Clinton Administration foreign policy expert, Morton Halperin, as the Director of the Open Society Institute.
Halperin has been suspected by the State Department of being a communist sympathizer and was the author of the Pentagon Papers which held a progressive view of the war in Vietnam.
From 1975-1992, Halperin worked as director of another ACLU project funded by Soros, called The Center for National Security Studies. Their main goal was to cut U.S. Defense and to interrupt intelligence capabilities.
In the book “Target America”, James L. Tyson wrote:
“Halperin and his organizations have a record of advocating the weakening of U.S. Intelligence communities. His writings would be a score of 100% favorable to the Communist line.”
Soros believes that 9/11 should have been treated as a police matter and not a military action.
President Bush was blamed for fomenting an unreasonable fear over terrorism because it helped to keep the nation lined up behind the president”.
Soros, as a matter of routine, called Bush and Republicans extremists who didn’t believe in freedom and “open society principles”, but based their foreign policy on the supremacy of the use of force.
Soros was convinced that Bush was dishonorable and used false and exaggerated intelligence to force the American invasion of Iraq on the American people and the world. He accused Bush of pursuing World domination with the invasion of Iraq and of pushing the “American” form of democracy on the Iraqi people.
The pro-Israeli lobby came under fire by Soros, claiming it was they who Bush was catering to with the invasion.
Soros also accused the rank and file military men and women of arrogance because of the example set by Bush.
Abu Gharib, which was proven to be a singular action, has been used by Soros to accuse the military of torturing prisoners.
Soros used his experience as an integral part of both Nazi and Communist rule to draw a profile of George Bush as a man guilty of the same atrocities.
In September 2003, in an interview with the BBC, Soros declared that it was imperative regime change come to the United States. There were three main points that Soros said would change the country both politically and ideologically and should be implemented immediately.
The subjugation of American power which we see occurring with Obama’s destruction of our military.
The subjugation of American sovereignty, something we will see with the forced implementation by the UN, and with Obama’s blessings, of Agenda 2030 in September.
The implementation of income through economic redistributive policies, something Obama has discussed in the past, and which will soon be a primary focus of the United Nations.
Soros declared “I could do a lot more about the issues I care about by changing the government than by pushing the issues.
Soros had spent eight years building a political and ideological base to do his bidding, and his influence first showed in the passage of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act, known as McCain-Feingold.
Soros spent money on both print and TV ads and via his progressive foundations to assure there were “experts” who would tell Congress and the media that the American people felt campaign finance reform was an issue they cared deeply about.
The Open Society Institute, along with eight other foundations that Soros gave money to, spent some $140 million dollars on research that was totally fact-free. It was contrived through such institutions as the Pew Research Council and the Pew Charitable Trusts. They knew from the beginning of the study that the purpose of the study was political, and that the project would be stopped if it did not achieve the desired goals. This is the same type of charitable giving that is now being used in climate change by this administration.
Republicans enjoyed a 2 to 1 advantage over Democrats before McCain-Feingold. After McCain-Feingold, the only organizations that would not face restrictions would be 527’s, named after that portion of the tax code.
Special interest groups, such as the Open Society Institute, were 527’s that were not bound by any legal limits.
These 527’s, after the passage of McCain-Feingold, could give unlimited money to anyone they wished as long as they were not issue-oriented ads. These 527’s were conduits for funds to the Democratic Party to enable them to work towards the election of candidates that would be controlled by progressives like Soros. This has led to a movement to the left of the Democratic Party.
Soros has developed a shadow party which first took shape on Long Island in 2003. Soros was overseeing the defeat of President Bush with such people like Mark Halperin, ACLU Socialist Ellen Malcolm, abortion rights activist John Podesta, Clinton former chief of staff Carl Pope from the Sierra Club, and others.
At the time, the organization, America Coming Together (ACT), was founded and benefitted to the tune of $10 million. They also received money from Peter Lewis, the chairman of Progressive Insurance, and the CEO of Real Networks, Robert Glaserall, who committed $1 million each to ACT.
This was the start of Soros’ shadow government which has expanded to unions, teachers groups and others, numbering in the hundreds with thousands of supporters and volunteers.
