Formula for Austerity and War

The formula for international hedge fund multi-billionaire George Soros and his ilk is a familiar one. Nation-states see their economies bled dry through usurious interest rates required to pay off international debts crafted by the global banker class. Indebted nations are then forced to sell off public assets and renege on social safety net promises. 

The austerity measures lead to unrest on the streets, capitalized upon by «outraged» fake progressive groups and parties in democratic nations and pro-democracy «color revolutions» in nations lacking full democratic political systems. In any case, what eventually comes to power are fascist-oriented regimes beholden to the bankers and the «new world order» enthusiasts.

The formula used by the bankers and the elites to achieve total political control over nations that have either implemented progressive policies to the detriment of the bankers or have resisted pressure to integrate their nations into new world order institutions like NATO and the European Union can be illustrated as follows:

N – (W1+W2) + U = F

"N" is the nation-state, with W1 being any national surplus in either international cash reserves or gold or other precious metal holdings and W2 being the public assets of a nation-state being subtracted from the nation’s wealth. The «U» is political unrest created by Central Intelligence Agency and Soros-financed political disruptors who claim they are protesting falling economies created by the costs of turning over W1 and W2 to the bankers. Eventually, political unrest does not succeed in returning cash reserves and public assets to the nation-state and its people and what follows is either a government led by unelected technocrats directed by the international bankers or a reactionary right-wing government beholden to the global bankers. This was the case in Italy, with the appointment of the unelected European central banker and Goldman Sachs adviser Mario Monti as the prime minister of a government intent on implementing crippling austerity measures. The reactionary government that results from the loss of national wealth and introduction of political stability is «F» in our formula, a regime that is primarily fascist in all of its overtones.

This is, by no means, a novel political-economic formula. The fate of Weimar Germany, plunged into economic and political turmoil in the global depression that followed World War I, ended up with a fascist government after its wealth was looted, with the cooperation of powerful international financial houses, by the vengeful Allies of World War I.

The CIA and Soros, in cooperation with the modern-day international financial houses of the European Central Bank, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund, have recognized that recalcitrant governments that do not wish to play by the new world order’s rules can be ousted by social media campaigns. These campaigns rely on staged thematic street demonstrations; sloganeering; flash mobs; mass-produced placards, flags, and banners; slanted international television coverage; manufactured government violence against protesters; and carefully groomed and well-paid «opposition leaders» to give the world the impression that a popular revolt against a government has massive public support, even if the opposite is the case.

Greece is a textbook case for the CIA/Soros formula. After a series of bourgeois conservative and social democratic governments ensured that the Greek Treasury was depleted by agreeing to economy-killing international loans from bankers, these same bourgeois leaders concluded socially-crippling austerity agreements with the same bankers. Pensions were cut, national health services were decimated, and public assets ranging from ports and airports to water and even Greek isles were auctioned off to the same ilk that originally bankrupted the country.

A public outcry ensued in Greece and a so-called «far left» party called SYRIZA staged street demonstrations and eventually was swept into power by an economically-desperate Greek electorate. However, rather than cancel Greece’s debts to the global bankers and withdraw from such control mechanisms as the European Monetary System and the Eurozone, as well as the EU and NATO, the «radical leftist» new Prime Minister, Alexis Tsipras, began negotiating the very same draconian austerity terms with the bankers that he protested against when they were agreed to by previous bourgeois governments. An anti-austerity faction of SYRIZA withdrew from Tsipras’s government to form the new Popular Unity Party. That resulted in Tsipras calling a new election and the Greek president appointing the president of the Supreme Court, Vassiliki Thanou, as a caretaker prime minister. To her credit, Thanou is opposed to the austerity measures agreed to by Tsipras.

Rather than being the bête noire for the bankers, Tsipras became their overnight hero when he faced down the purists within his own SYRIZA party and made common cause with the bankers of Frankfurt, New York, and London, and the «Eurocrats» of Brussels and Strasbourg. Soros and his political manipulator friends at the CIA and U.S. State Department banked on Tsipras serving as a useful «steam valve» for the angry Greek populace. Tsipras, a former Communist, was elected based on his false promises. Why would anyone trust a former Communist when Greece already has an anti-austerity political party that is composed not of «former Communists» but of current Communists: the Communist Party of Greece (KKE)?

Neither SYRIZA nor what the KKE calls «SYRIZA II» – Tsipras’s party plus the Popular Unity renegades – are truly leftists in the eyes of the Greek Communists. KKE leader Dimitris Koutsoumpas quotes the ancient philosopher from his country, Heraclitus, in warning Greek voters against being deceived once again by the faux leftists. Heraclitus said, «You cannot step twice into the same river.» But that is what fans of Tsipras and his so-called leftist allies will do if they throw away their votes a second time. Koutsoumpas hits the nail on the head when he describes SYRIZA as a collection of «opportunists,» i.e., Trotskyites, the «Eurocommunists» from the late 1960s, Maoists, and «New Left» groupies enclosed in «radical, anti-system, and ‘movementist’ wrapping paper.» In other words, SYRIZA is composed of the same fakes and phonies that permeate «anti-system» movements throughout Europe, including PODEMOS in Spain, Five Star in Italy, and even the «repackaged» and «more moderate» National Front of France.

The same situation that exists in Greece also plagues Latin America. Progressive presidents Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner of Argentina, Dilma Rousseff of Brazil, Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela, Evo Morales of Bolivia, and Rafael Correa of Ecuador have been plagued by international pressure on their national economies from the global bankers. They have also seen the Soros/CIA formula play out with quite synthetic street protests being staged in their major cities that demand their resignations and impeachments from office. In Brazil, so-called «popular» demonstrations against Rousseff and sponsored by a new group, Brazil Accord, were actually led by Luiz Philippe de Orleans e Bragança, the pretender to the throne of the former Empire of Brazil. That critical fact was omitted by reports on the Brazilian demonstrations that emanated from such Wall Street house organs as The Wall Street Journal and New York Times, and the de facto CIA public relations rag, The Washington Post.

The net result of the Soros/CIS destabilization program is that credit ratings agencies like Moody’s and Standard & Poors downgrade the targeted nation’s credit rating to «junk status.» No one ever poses the question as to whether these ratings determinations are actually based on «junk statistics.»

In Argentina, economic destabilization has been particularly acute as a result of a virtual war being waged on that nation by Paul Elliott Singer, founder of Elliott Management Corporation, a vulture fund tycoon who feeds off of sovereign debts of nations by suing them for payment defaults. Just as with Soros, who targeted the currencies of Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Indonesia, and the Philippines for devaluation in the 1990s, Singer prizes targeting struggling developing nations that default on their international debt payments. These include Argentina, Peru, and the Republic of Congo (Brazzaville).

Soros and Singer are cut from the same cloth of unscrupulous global financiers. In 2009, Soros actually said that Hong Kong was praiseworthy for thwarting Soros’s attempt to undermine the Hong Kong dollar in 1997 but added that it was his «right» to do so. Singer, who champions gay rights within the U.S. Republican Party, feels it is his «right» to destabilize Argentina’s economy, thus putting hundreds of thousands of people out of work. When Soros attacked Malaysia’s ringgit in 1997, the Malaysian Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohamed, called Soros a «villain» and a «moron,» suggesting that Soros was part of a global bankers’ «agenda.» While Soros, Singer, and their colleagues are clearly not «morons,» Mahathir’s other two charges have some merit when closely examined in light of what has transpired in Greece, Ukraine, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, and other countries as a result of the policies of not only Soros and Singer but also of convicted hedge fund mogul Bernard Madoff, Dominique Strauss-Kahn at the IMF, Paul Wolfowitz and Robert Zoellick at the World Bank, Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs, «shock therapy» instigator and United Nations Millennium Development Goals adviser Dr. Jeffrey Sachs of Columbia University, and Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, and Janet Yellen at the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank.

The Soros/CIA formula for disruption continues to go strong. From Macedonia and the attempt to stage a Kiev-type color revolution there to Lebanon, where the theme is a garbage collectors’ strike and a «You Stink!» movement directed against a government that receives support from Hezbollah, and Malaysia, where the color yellow has been adopted by anti-government protesters, Soros and the CIA as busy as ever in combining economic turmoil with phony revolutions.
