Soros Threatens Blood on the Streets?

George Soros on the Coming U.S. Class War ... Has the great short seller gone soft? Well, yes. Sitting in his 33rd-floor corner office high above Seventh Avenue in New York, preparing for his trip to Davos, he is more concerned with surviving than staying rich. "At times like these, survival is the most important thing," he says, peering through his owlish glasses and brushing wisps of gray hair off his forehead. He doesn't just mean it's time to protect your assets. He means it's time to stave off disaster. As he sees it, the world faces one of the most dangerous periods of modern history—a period of "evil." Europe is confronting a descent into chaos and conflict. In America he predicts riots on the streets that will lead to a brutal clampdown that will dramatically curtail civil liberties. The global economic system could even collapse altogether. – Daily Beast

Dominant Social Theme: Soros is very worried about the state of the world, and we should be, too. Maybe Davos will save us! Or the Bilderbergs?

Free-Market Analysis: The Daily Beast is out with an article that ticks many of the boxes of dominant social themes of the elite. As we have often explained, the power elite works via fear-based promotions that frighten the middle classes into giving up power and wealth to globalist institutions.

George Soros has the fear-based stuff down to a science. The article (see excerpt above) is one fear-based meme after another. "Survival is the most important thing" ... "a period of evil" ... "a descent into chaos and conflict."

It should be pointed out that George Soros wasn't always such a splendid spokesperson for the power elite. In fact, for a long time, from what we can tell, he was a kind of rogue trader using the Austrian business cycle analysis he learned at the London School of Economics to make increasingly profitable bets on a variety of currencies.

Soros seemingly didn't pay much attention to the formal power structure, and that structure didn't pay much attention to him until one day in the early 1990s he made a billion dollar bet (a lot of money back then) that the British pound was going to crash. In fact, it proved a self-fulfilling prophecy and suddenly Soros was the most famous trader of them all.

Not only was he was famous. He was suddenly in demand. So much so that the Queen of England herself granted him a private audience. In fact, she didn't so much grant it as demand it.

Now, we don't know what was said in that interview so long ago, but we've observed since then that George Soros – post interview – seemed like a changed man. Instead of ignoring the Anglosphere power structure, he virtually personifies it.

How did this come about? Our pet theory is that the Queen of England gave him an old fashioned "verbal spanking." She said something along the lines of, "George, you've become a real pain-in-the-caboose! You'd better get with the program ... "

"What do you mean by that, Your Majesty?" George Soros asked.

It means that one night, Georgie, you'll go to bed and never wake up.

To sleep well, George Soros began to work closely with the Anglosphere power elite that he once disregarded and even traded against. Gradually, his trading activities became less prominent, or less discussed anyway.

George Soros launched a variety of non-profit efforts – high profile ones that feature various kinds of leftist activism. He became well known as a socialist engineer on a vast scale.

Of course, this might seem curious given that Soros was a market entrepreneur, but not if you know the MO of the central-banking families that want to build a formal New World Order.

This tiny handful of people – perhaps located mostly in the City of London – seek front men that support the Hegelian Dialectic that helps them move the world's sociopolitical and economic discussion toward full-fledged globalism.

Rupert Murdoch, as we've pointed out, is probably one such front-man. He's received an inordinate amount of money to erect "conservative" papers around the world.

Curiously, such papers, despite their labeling, are firmly jingoistic and militaristic. Murdoch sounds like a libertarian, but scratch the surface and he's statist to the core.

Can this be coincidence? How about Soros? ... As a trader, it doesn't seem to us that he evinced a great deal of leftism, but these days he's the biggest, or most prominent, leftist on the planet.

It's like he was told to pick a persona. He could be a "conservative" like Murdoch, so long as he was a supporter of the warfare state, or he could be a "liberal" and jet around the world creating groups and movements that would lobby for greater state involvement on behalf of social and economic "leveling."

Perhaps "they" didn't have an opening on the conservative side of the dialectic. Who knows? In any case, in the past several decades George Soros has emerged as perhaps the world's leading billionaire leftist.

Of course, we have a hard time believing it, for all the reasons presented above. There seems to us a pattern to George Soros's involvement in various causes, and it seems to us a predetermined one.

Even the mainstream media coverage he gets is pretty much predictable. Fox "hates" him the way the Guardian newspaper "hates" Murdoch. (A big, phony hate.) Here's some more from the Daily Beast article:

While Soros, whose new book, Financial Turmoil in Europe and the United States, will be published in early February, is currently focused on Europe, he's quick to claim that economic and social divisions in the U.S. will deepen, too. He sympathizes with the Occupy movement, which articulates a widespread disillusionment with capitalism that he shares. People "have reason to be frustrated and angry" at the cost of rescuing the banking system, a cost largely borne by taxpayers rather than shareholders or bondholders.

Occupy Wall Street "is an inchoate, leaderless manifestation of protest," but it will grow. It has "put on the agenda issues that the institutional left has failed to put on the agenda for a quarter of a century." He reaches for analysis, produced by the political blog ThinkProgress.org, that shows how the Occupy movement has pushed issues of unemployment up the agenda of major news organizations, including MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News.

It reveals that in one week in July of last year the word "debt" was mentioned more than 7,000 times on major U.S. TV news networks. By October, mentions of the word "debt" had dropped to 398 over the course of a week, while "occupy" was mentioned 1,278 times, "Wall Street" 2,378 times, and "jobs" 2,738 times. You can't keep a financier away from his metrics.

As anger rises, riots on the streets of American cities are inevitable. "Yes, yes, yes," he says, almost gleefully. The response to the unrest could be more damaging than the violence itself. "It will be an excuse for cracking down and using strong-arm tactics to maintain law and order, which, carried to an extreme, could bring about a repressive political system, a society where individual liberty is much more constrained, which would be a break with the tradition of the United States."

See? Soros is apparently "gleeful" about the prospect of unrest. We're not surprised! We also learn, "In spite of his warnings of political turmoil in the U.S., he has no plans to engage in politics directly." In fact, from what we can tell, this is a misleading statement, if not a flat out fib.

There's plenty of evidence on the Internet that Soros has been deeply involved in funding the Occupy Wall Street movement. We've written numerous articles about OWS, along with many others in the libertarian alternative press, showing how OWS is very likely a kind of power elite false flag.

The people behind OWS are apparently funded by money derived in part from Soros and other power-elite affiliated elements. You can see much the same pattern when it comes to "green" investing, etc. The idea, again, is to generate a dialectic that involves the state.

The OWS movement, for instance, is not focused on central banking or the powerful families that control it and are trying to set up, apparently, some sort of one-world government. No. OWS, in its incipient stages anyway, was focused on the inequities of Wall Street – the one percent.

The solution being proposed by OWS is to use the awesome power of the US federal judiciary to punish the Wall Street "banksters." As we've pointed out many times now, this is a kind of neo-"French Revolution" solution to the problem. The corrupt and vicious US judicial system should be disbanded – not utilized, strengthened and given renewed credibility.

Think of the USSR. Would freedom have been advanced in that bleeding country by inviting the KGB to punish powerful evildoers, or would freedom have been advanced by dismantling the KGB? 

That may seem an extreme example, but the US has the most fiercesome domestic security apparatus in the world today. It doesn't need any encouragement, in our view, not with six million Americans under lock-and-key and 300 empty "prison camps" scattered around the country.

We've long pointed out that one of the goals of those behind OWS is to create a new Pecora Hearing that will pass further laws and set up even more regulatory strictures on what the US financial industry can and cannot do.

And this, too, in our opinion, will be a kind of false flag, just as it was in the 1930s. Then, as now, the system of central banking destroyed the economy. And then, as now, the powers-that-be behind central banking managed to deflect attention from Money Power by blaming Wall Street.

Of course, this time round, thanks to the Internet era – what we call the Internet Reformation – things aren't working quite so smoothly. The faux-populism of OWS has been exposed on numerous levels, along with its suspicious enthusiasm for authoritarian measures and lack of interest in confronting Money Power itself.

Yes ... thanks to the exposure of alternative 'Net press, OWS in all its manifestations has been a kind of fizzle. Developed as part of the power elite dialectic, it's not pulling its weight. The OWS "occupy Congress" intervention was something of a failure. Around the country, OWS sites are abandoned, fading-to-black.

And thus ... enter Soros. He's no innocent bystander, remember? We think his funds are behind OWS, along with a lot of other power elite money. And what is Soros "anticipating"?

Why, bloodshed! He says it flat out, speaking of a coming "US class war." That's exactly what the elites want, of course. Nothing like a class war between the one percent and the 99 percent to distract attention from the .000000001 percent that actually run things!

Conclusion

Maybe we're wrong about all this! Heck, we're meme-watchers not fortune-tellers. But Soros's eager doom-and-gloom-ism makes us highly suspicious. Operation "OWS" needs a boost. Time to take it to the next level?
