Have we ever found a link between Soros and OUChi? More importantly has either ever profited because of the actions of the other one? EX: One manipulative the price (lowering it) of a commodity that the other just happens to buy. Thinking that two men with that amount of money could really cause hack in any market they chose.

Who is attacking the U.S.? The big casualty in this 21st century U.S. civil war is the Middle Class

George Soros, Maurice Strong and company redefine the Middleclass

http://recyclewashington.wordpress.com/?cat=10767

The Elitists behind the theoretical development of these political platforms are Maurice Strong, David Rockefeller, Al Gore, Mikhail Gorbachev, Robert Muller, George Soros, and about 100 others that will always appear on boards of various NGO’s (non-government organizations). Although I can trace these individuals to connections with apprx. 1,800 other organizations, they all sit on the Board of the Club of Rome. These names will repeat themselves as you start sifting through each and every one of these organizations. For an in-depth look at the people and organizations, click [here].

For example, it is interesting to note that the Trilateral Commission, The Council on Foreign Relations, The Rockefeller Foundation, and the Club of Rome were all founded by David Rockefeller. It is also interesting to note that all these organizations and the plethora of their alliances all carry the same message, and all have the usual people associated with them.

Liberals (democrats) are sooo propagandized they fail to see the nose upon their faces. If only they could connect the dots, the occupy movement would be sitting in the yards of Soros, the accomplice media and the Soros protege.

Maurice Strong - No better place to hide than China

Snips: October 31, 2006:

. Maurice Strong, a Canadian oil billionaire, was also the Secretary General of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro where the unveiling of Agenda 21 occurred. He said, "....current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class, involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work air conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable."

. Pointing out that Strong is "very welcome" in China is a polite way of saying that he's right at home where overpaid environmental spin doctors have long claimed that Maurice Strong was the only man alive who could see that the United States of America is replaced by Communist China as world superpower.

. The Tribune-Review comes right out and throws sunlight on the business partnership Strong has with George Soros.

Climate fund benefitting the tyrants

Snips:

The true colours of the UN’s Climate Fund will be the despots of tinpot dictatorships, the tyrants of the third world, and the bureaucrats of the UN. Climate Change has never been about the science, as the saying goes, ‘follow the money’.

. At the heart of this are the Fabians, which includes noted money scammers like Maurice Strong and George Soros, the latter noted for bringing down the UK pound a number of yeaqrs ago amongst others. Other well known Fabians are a large part of the current Australian Government, well known for being disciples of ‘sharing the wealth’ at the UN.

. The UN is saying to poor countries: ‘Those of you who adopt more anti-prosperity, anti- jobs, and anti-growth policies — under the pretense of environmentalism — we will enrich you”

. ut Louw, says the UN climate fund will wreak havoc on the developing world’s poor. Louw explained: “The money goes to government and governments spend it on of course on themselves, meaning various government projects, creating bigger departments — bigger bureaucracies, it’s called big bureaucratic capture. They build empires, they build conference centers, and they buy political support. They go and distribute the money to communities where they want support and votes.

Big names back Trump tower

Excerpt:

Soros, Deutsche Bank said to be in on 90-story building
October 28, 2004|By Thomas A. Corfman, Tribune staff reporter.

Donald Trump has lined up three New York hedge funds, including money from billionaire George Soros, to invest $160 million in his Chicago skyscraper, a key piece in perhaps the largest construction financing in the city’s history, according to real estate sources and public documents.

Despite reports about the project’s record-breaking sales, most of them from Trump himself, many Chicago real estate developers and lenders have expressed doubts about whether the 90-story tower would ever be built.

The biggest scam ever perpetrated on the world and still going strong in the UK and wherever else mandated. The rich are getting filthy dirty rich at the expense of the average-joe taxpaying world citizen, especially once the "green agenda" is shoved down their throats via government mandate!!!!!!

Article from August 2011:
Solar manufacturers closing shop in US, production moving overseas

Solar panel manufacturing may be profitable for some countries where skilled labor can be found cheaply, especially as long as governments direct consumers to purchase electricity from such sources, regardless of economics. But, in the United States, solar manufacturing plants are closing and the “green jobs” associated with them are evaporating. One may wonder why, but the economics are clear. Without massive subsidies, these industries cannot survive, and without policies that force these products to be purchased, they can’t survive. European countries (e.g. Spain and Germany) are examples where legislative and regulatory policies required solar energy to be purchased at rates far above the going retail rate.[ix]These countries found that they had to slash subsidies because of high rates and little power production due to low capacity factors of solar plants.

Its all there. Just needs someone to put it all together.

I still see all this as the regime doing the bidding of others quite possibly Soros but he's hardly the only one.

What a massive job,don't know how you guys have done it.

Your hard work is much appreciated.

George Soros Is Almost Ready To Give Up On Obama

Oliver Stone Donald Trump Soros and Steve Schwarzman were Roubini party guests
Oliver Stone
Oliver Stone holding court with billionaires Donald Trump, George Soros and Steve Schwarzman at a private party hosted by Nouriel Roubini — nicknamed “Dr. Doom,” for predicting the economic crisis — at RdV Lounge in the Meatpacking District the NYPost reported ...

wiki:

Nouriel Roubini (born 29 March 1959) is an American economist. He claims to have predicted both the collapse of the United States housing market and the worldwide recession which started in 2008. He teaches at New York University’s Stern School of Business and is the chairman of Roubini Global Economics, an economic consultancy firm.

The child of Iranian Jews, he grew up in Italy. After receiving a BA in political economics at Bocconi University, Milan and a doctorate in international economics at Harvard University, he became an academic at Yale and a practicing economist at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Federal Reserve, World Bank, and Bank of Israel. Much of his early research focused on emerging markets. During the administration of President Bill Clinton, he was a senior economist for the Council of Economic Advisers, later moving to the United States Treasury Department as a senior adviser to Timothy Geithner, who in 2009 became Treasury Secretary.

Roubini’s critical economic views have earned him the nicknames “Dr. Doom” and “permabear” in the media.[1] In 2008, Fortune magazine wrote, “In 2005 Roubini said home prices were riding a speculative wave that would soon sink the economy. Back then the professor was called a Cassandra. Now he’s a sage”.[2] The New York Times notes that he foresaw “homeowners defaulting on mortgages, trillions of dollars of mortgage-backed securities unraveling worldwide and the global financial system shuddering to a halt”.[1] In September 2006, he warned a skeptical IMF that “the United States was likely to face a once-in-a-lifetime housing bust, an oil shock, sharply declining consumer confidence, and, ultimately, a deep recession”. Nobel laureate Paul Krugman adds that his once “seemingly outlandish” predictions have been matched “or even exceeded by reality.”[3]

As Roubini’s descriptions of the current economic crisis have proven to be accurate, he is today a major figure in the U.S. and international debate about the economy, and spends much of his time shuttling between meetings with central bank governors and finance ministers in Europe and Asia.[1] Although he is ranked only 512th in terms of lifetime academic citations,[4] he was #4 on Foreign Policy magazine’s list of the “top 100 global thinkers.”[5] In 2011, he was named by Foreign Policy magazine to its list of top global thinkers.[6] He has appeared before Congress, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the World Economic Forum at Davos.

Obama reaches out to Mullah Omar, Mullah Omar reaches out for more destruction
The Obama Report ^ | 1/2/12

Posted on Tuesday, January 03, 2012 3:53:16 AM by Frankusa

The AP reported last week that “U.S. officials from the State Department and White House plan to continue a series of secret meetings with Taliban representatives.”

The AP report went on to say that “one member of the Taliban negotiating team has been publicly identified as Tayyab Aga [Agha], an emissary of Pakistan-based Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar.”

But sadly, and ironically, while the Obama administration is desperately reaching out to Mullah Omar, Mr. Omar is strengthening his resolve to kill US troops and to wreak havoc upon Afghanistan.

From the Times of India:

Taliban militants in Afghanistan and Pakistan have formed a new grouping which has pledged to stop targeting Pakistani security forces and focus their attention on US-led Nato troops in Afghanistan at the intervention of their elusive supreme commander Mullah Omar.
Likewise, the Long War Journal reported:
One of al Qaeda’s top leaders has reached out to the most powerful Taliban commanders along the Afghan-Pakistani border to create a new alliance to battle the US and NATO forces in Afghanistan...
The members of the Shura-e-Murakeba agreed to cease attacks against Pakistani security forces, refocus efforts against the US, and end kidnappings and other criminal activities in the tribal areas.

The deal was brokered by senior al Qaeda leader Abu Yahya al Libi as well as by Sirajuddin Haqqani, the operational leader of the Haqqani Network, and Mullah Mansour, a senior Taliban leader who operates in eastern Afghanistan... Mullah Omar, the overall leader of the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan, is said to have dispatched Siraj and Mansour to help negotiate the agreement...

Hence, while the Obama administration is desperately grasping on to straws and reaching out to Mullah Omar, Mr. Omar is creating “a new alliance to battle US and NATO forces in Afghanistan.”
Ironic indeed; if it weren’t so sad, I would laugh......

From the article:

Internal communications provided to The Daily indicate that the new leadership seemed to fundamentally clash with career agency employees over when to afford the benefit of the doubt, culminating in a whistle-blower investigation into a senior appointee and, ultimately, the agency-wide inspector general inquiry that produced the report.

“We recognize their right to interpret things as liberally as possible, but you still have to follow the law,” said one high-ranking official who was unhappy with the current push.

At least five agency veterans seen as being too tough on applicants were either demoted, or given the choice between a demotion or a relocation from Southern California — where their families were — to San Francisco and Nebraska, according to sources and letters of reassignment provided to The Daily.

Those kind of threats have caused lower-level employees to fall in line, sources said.

“People are afraid,” said one longtime manager, who requested anonymity for fear of being fired. “Integrity only carries people so far because they’ve got to pay the rent.”

A rank-and-file officer who was not involved in the investigation claimed he was demoted to working on less technical cases because he had a high denial rate. “They don’t reprimand you, they just move you,” he said.

“They attempted to basically get me to come into line and approve a bunch of cases. And I just wouldn’t compromise myself because the approvals they ordered, they weren’t in line with the laws,” said the officer.

This is chilling.

Probe reveals feds pressuring agents to rush immigrant visas – even if fraud is feared
The Daily ^ | January 3, 2012 | Sarah Ryley

Posted on Tuesday, January 03, 2012 3:49:20 PM by OddLane

Higher-ups within U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services are pressuring rank-and-file officers to rubber-stamp immigrants’ visa applications, sometimes against the officers’ will, according to a Homeland Security report and internal documents exclusively obtained by The Daily.

A 40-page report, drafted by the Office of Inspector General in September but not publicly released, details the immense pressure immigration service officers are under to approve visa applications quickly, sometimes while overlooking concerns about fraud, eligibility or security.

One-quarter of the 254 officers surveyed said they have been pressured to approve questionable cases, sometimes “against their will.”

The report does not call out any particular officials and indicates that the agency has had a problem with valuing quantity over quality since at least the 1980s.

was what I read.
Then got angry about wnd suddenly discovering jamat al fuqra which we have documented here for three years as if it is their exclusive when I know stuff has been taken from these threads and the hard work of Freepers who pored over miles of research never, ever given credit.
They do the same to New Zeal and it ticks me off no end.
/end rant.

From the Daily article, the paragraph that irked me most was this one:

Snip: One-quarter of the 254 officers surveyed said they have been pressured to approve questionable cases, sometimes “against their will.

*************

IMHO here's perversion of the Constitution by a liberal judge (illegal aliens are NOT citizens and unless they have a work visa should be deported, not rewarded with drivers licenses):

Judge blocks NM governor on immigrant driver licenses

Snip: Governor Susana Martinez's administration last month ordered the state to reverify the physical residency of foreign nationals who hold New Mexico driver's licenses in order to get or keep their licenses. But District Court Judge Sarah Singleton in Santa Fe issued a temporary restraining order blocking the program, arguing in a brief ruling that "irreparable injury" would occur from "constitutional deprivations to the applicants."

So is yet another Inspector General going to bite the obamadust? The report is from September. This is January.

GOLDMAN SACHS SUBMITS: ISSUES ISLAMIC BOND PROGRAM AS CONFORMING TO SHARIA LAW
Atlas Shrugged ^ | 1/3/12 | Pamela Geller

Posted on Tuesday, January 03, 2012 6:18:29 PM by RnMomof7

Why should my taxpayer dollars be used to advance sharia finance? Goldman Sachs, one of the largest recipients of Obama’s redistribution of taxpayer money, is going Islamic. Many of Obama’s cabinet and appointed czars are directly connected to Goldman Sachs.

The Muslim Brotherhood is dictating Obama’s foreign policy, and now its financial policy as well.

Sharia finance prohibits investments in whole American sectors — tobacco, pork, alcohol and some forms of entertainment. Further, 2.5% must go to zakat (Islamic charity aka jihad). I do not want my money going to advance jihad and starve American business.

Where is the separation of mosque and state?

We need hearings on taxpayer dollars being used to fund Islamic finance (thereby funding jihad and prohibition on whole American business sectors).

Goldman Defends Islamic Bond Program as Conforming to Sharia Law Advisor One Firm counters charges that funds could be used for purposes unlawful under Islamic rules A program begun by Goldman Sachs in October to offer a $2 billion sukuk that conforms to sharia law has been defended by an advisor to the firm. The program, registered with the Irish Stock Exchange and issued through a Cayman Islands-registered special purpose vehicle, Global Sukuk Co Ltd., was undertaken to issue a sukuk (Islamic bond program) based on murabaha, a cost-plus-profit arrangement that is compliant with Islamic law.

However, according to a Reuters report, there have been criticisms of the program from some analysts, who say Goldman might use the proceeds to lend money to clients who would have to pay interest; that would be against Islamic law. Other assertions are that the issue might not trade at par value on the Irish exchange, which also is a violation of sharia law.

If either charge is true, it could have detrimental effects on other financial institutions that might want to enter the field of Islamic finance, which has been largely unaffected by the turmoil in other markets and offers an opportunity for Western banks to raise money from its billions in investment funds. Islamic law, though, forbids the charging of interest and making money through pure speculation.

In May HSBC’s Middle East unit Amanah became the first Western bank to issue a sukuk, with a $500 million Islamic bond that will mature in five years. French bank Crédit Agricole is also considering either issuing an Islamic bond or creating a broader sukuk program that could spawn several issues.

Unlikely with an election coming up in November. It's all about perceived image until then.

Ipad passport scan gets man across US border

Snip: The anecdote is troubling because a scanned copy of a passport "is not a secure document," said MP Brian Masse.

"That could be altered, and could also lead to some precedents that would jeopardize [border] security," said Masse, NDP critic for US-Canada border relations.

Three North Koreans killed while trying to flee to China

The three poor farmers were crossing the Yalu River. Witnesses on the Chinese border say they saw border guards carrying away the bodies. Surveillance measures enhanced after the death of Kim Jong Il: the new regime wants to give a message of severity.

France toughens citizenship gauntlet

Snip: Nicolas Sarkozy’s government has just thrown up some tough new hurdles for would-be French citizens, requiring them to pass a difficult language test (foreigners will need to speak French at the level of a French 15-year-old) and swear allegiance to "French values," the Los Angeles Times reports. The new rules, which went into effect on Jan. 1, also forbid the new citizens from claiming “allegiance to another country while on French soil,” though dual nationality is still permitted.

Only six women fined since France's veil ban enforced

Snip: Controversy surrounded the law. Muslim leaders, most of them opposed to burkas, say the it stigmatises all followers of Islam.

Mr Gueant said police cited a total of 237 women but only six were convicted. He expressed surprise that nearly a quarter of the women police questioned had converted to Islam.

Taliban leaders held at Guantánamo Bay to be released in peace talks deal
guardian.co.uk ^ | 1/3/12 | Julian Borger, and Jon Boone

Posted on Tuesday, January 03, 2012 6:14:04 PM by ColdOne

The US has agreed in principle to release high-ranking Taliban officials from Guantánamo Bay in return for the Afghan insurgents’ agreement to open a political office for peace negotiations in Qatar, the Guardian has learned.

According to sources familiar with the talks in the US and in Afghanistan, the handful of Taliban figures will include Mullah Khair Khowa, a former interior minister, and Noorullah Noori, a former governor in northern Afghanistan.

More controversially, the Taliban are demanding the release of the former army commander Mullah Fazl Akhund. Washington is reported to be considering formally handing him over to the custody of another country, possibly Qatar.

The releases would be to reciprocate for Tuesday’s announcement from the Taliban that they are prepared to open a political office in Qatar to conduct peace negotiations “with the international community” – the most significant political breakthrough in ten years of the Afghan conflict.

The Taliban are holding just one American soldier, Bowe Bergdahl, a 25-year-old sergeant captured in June 2009, but it is not clear whether he would be freed as part of the deal.

“To take this step, the [Obama] administration have to have sufficient confidence that the Taliban are going to reciprocate,”
******************************************************

Another gratuitous slap at our dead and wounded. The man is virtually dripping with the blood of Americans killed since he has been president. There is no forgiveness for murder.
