Ukraine, Venezuela, and Bosnia: The Struggle Continues

Foreign intervention in Ukraine led to a putsch by far-right forces on Saturday. One day before, an EU truce laid the groundwork for the formation of a national unity government, leaving President Yanukovych as a ‘powerless figurehead’. But protesters, backed by the opposition, would not give up until he left power. They threw firebombs, advanced on police lines, and soon 25,000 people, allegedly led by overtly fascist elements, surrounded parliament. The police responded with violence, but the protesters couldn’t be stopped.

Victoria Nuland, chosen by Obama to deal with Ukraine, thought the EU was ‘insufficiently confrontational’ with the Ukrainian government. She apparently threatened sanctions on wealthy backers of the governing Regions Party, like Ukraine’s richest man Rinat Akhmetov, if the police used force against protesters. After police repression did indeed occur, many of Yanukovych’s party allies predictably abandoned him, leaving the opposition in control.

Once in power, the opposition immediately impeached the president – without the necessary approval of the Constitutional Court. The new government seems dead set on accepting an IMF bailout package – in exchange, of course, for ‘reforms’ (which could see strong resistance from pro-Russian areas in the east and south). They also voted for Ukrainian to be the only official language, marginalising the 20% of the population which speaks Russian – a decision showing the clearly nationalist intentions of the new ‘government’. Another worrying sign of the increasing power of the country’s right-wing is that Kiev’s Jews have received threats of violence.

Yanukovych himself, not exactly a revolutionary figure capable of mobilising mass rallies in recent weeks, compared events to the rise of the Nazis in the 1930s. Protests have indeed often been dominated by violent right-wingers, but also by competing oligarchs and imperialist powers. Ukraine’s working class, meanwhile, lacking in political consciousness thanks to years of paternalism, was largely left voiceless. Nonetheless, the eastern districts – the country’s most economically vital industrial areas – have threatened to seek autonomy or independence as a result of the opposition coup.

Meanwhile, in Venezuela, the US would love to get rid of another democratically-elected government it doesn’t like. And the violent turn taken by recent opposition protests, also linked to far-right sectors of the population, has captured Obama’s attention. However, US eyes have been firmly fixed on the oil-rich Latin American nation ever since the socialist Hugo Chávez won elections in 1998. Carl Gibson, for example, alleges that USAID (along with Colombian consultants) has recently been trying to destabilise the country through economic sabotage. Apparently, it encourages “hunger strikes of numerous days, massive mobilisations, [and] problems in the universities and other sectors of society now identified with government institutions.”

At the moment, the right wing campaign calling for “La Salida” (or resignation) of democratically-elected president Nicolás Maduro is led by “extremist politicians Leopoldo López and María Corina Machado” who, having been implicated in the 2002 attempted coup in Venezuela, once again call for protests to continue until the government is removed. López, according to a Wikileaks cable, has been linked to CANVAS, the US-funded ‘democracy-promotion’ (i.e. regime-change) organisation that Ukraine’s Yanukovich banned from Kiev just prior to his downfall.

Venezuela is largely divided by class rather than ethnicity or region, and is not likely to fall to pro-US elites as easily as Ukraine did. Mass rallies of support for the government, for instance, exemplify the immense support the government has. Even a long list of prominent left-wing figures in the UK has today denounced the wave of violence, sparked by “minority and extremist sections of Venezuela’s opposition”, which has left at least 3 people dead, 60 injured and has seen “physical assaults on government institutions including shots and Molotov cocktail attacks on the state TV channel and a state governor’s residency”. People in Venezuela are guaranteed the right to protest peacefully by their Constitution, but the current protests have not been entirely peaceful. The question is how the government can avoid further violence.

Meanwhile, back in Europe, Bosnia-Herzegovina has also seen unrest, but this time against a pro-Western government. Ex-workers from recently privatised factories took to the streets to claim healthcare and pension payments, get the pay they were owed, and ask the government to fight youth unemployment, which currently stands at 60%. According to the scholar Chiara Milan, “failed privatizations, rampant unemployment and a thoroughly inefficient and unaccountable political system lie at the basis of the Bosnian protests.”

Trade unions and the Association of the Unemployed were joined by both students and citizens when they marched on government buildings, to be then pushed back violently with teargas and rubber bullets by the police. Rallies in solidarity with these workers soon spread throughout the country, in both the Serb and Bosniak-Croat areas – some remaining peaceful but others becoming violent. As “symbols of a corrupted and incompetent political class” were attacked, politicians resigned.

The privatisation imposed on the country by international capitalists after the communist era simply resulted in the bankruptcy of industries, the subsequent job losses, and economic collapse. Overall unemployment today, for example, stands at around 28%.

While some of the rage may have been ‘irresponsible’, as indeed it was probably described in the first capitalist economic crisis in Europe in 1873, it is inescapable when a government and its institutions only represent societal elites and drives its population into desperation. Far from the ethnic conflicts which have plagued the nation in the recent past, these protests included all of those disenfranchised and exploited by their corrupt, incompetent, Western-backed political class. Just like in Greece, Spain and Turkey, Bosnian squares are burning as popular resistance to the injustices of capitalism rages.

The presence of massive protests like these has increased since the most recent global economic crisis, just as it did in each previous capitalist crisis. We must be very careful not to allow ourselves to be taken in by everything that the TV, newspapers, or internet media tell us. Everything that is happening must be understood in the context of injustice and exploitation. Sometimes governments are entirely responsible. Sometimes they are only partially responsible. But the exploiters are always present, trying to ‘protect their interests’, whether through protests or through governments. And we need to keep that in mind when we read about protests – wherever in the world they may be.

One Response to Ukraine, Venezuela, and Bosnia: The Struggle Continues

  1. vjkklmnoto says:


    1) ” During the recent carnival in Venezuela, the isolated pockets of student protests taking place in large cities died out as if by magic.
    Or, to be more precise, they died out in the privileged areas of the cities. The organisers of the anti-government protests had assured the world that the carnival would not take place, and that the tradition of travelling to Caribbean beaches would be cancelled, since «the dissatisfaction of the people» had reached a climax. Just a little bit more and the regime would come crashing down, President Nicolás Maduro and his comrades would run off to Cuba, and the country would return to «a true democracy». The protests were widely covered by leading television channels in the West, and now – complete silence. Venezuelans are celebrating and relaxing.
    A major role in the information and psychological war against Venezuela belongs to US intelligence agencies. The whole of Hugo Chavez’s presidency was spent amid severe information warfare which the US placed great emphasis on in order to compromise the very idea of building a 21st century socialism in Venezuela. Chavez never promised a speedy success on this journey, but his well thought out social policy achieved many things. According to opinion polls, Venezuelans are among some of the happiest people in the Western Hemisphere.
    The achievements of the Bolivarian Revolution with regard to healthcare, education and the construction of affordable housing guaranteed Chavez popular support. A solid home front made it possible for Chavez to successfully counteract America’s subversive operations not just in Venezuela, but in the international arena as well. ”


    ” In 1976 Ford brought Bush [RELATIVE OF THE QUEEN ELIZABETH II] back to Washington to become Director of Central Intelligence (DCI), replacing William Colby.[28] He served in this role for 357 days, from January 30, 1976, to January 20, 1977.”
    ( Hillary, Bush, and Queen Elizabeth II are all related!! )

    ” Since the early 1950s, the CIA has used the Ford Foundation as a funding cover. ”

    ” The Prince of Wales Business Leaders Forum is an educational charity with close to 50 multinational corporations from the United States, Britain, Germany, Japan, and several other countries on its executive directorate. The U.S. corporations who work very closely with the prince include: 3M, American Express, TRW, Coca-Cola, SmithKline Beecham, ARCO, CIGNA, DHL Worldwide Express, Levi Strauss & Company, The Perot Group, and U.S. WEST International. Additional partners are the American Chamber of Commerce, American Hotel & Motel Association, The Atlanta Project, Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, The City of Charleston, the Ford Foundation, the Kellog Foundation, Eli Lilly, the New York City Housing Partnership, the Office of Ronald Reagan, the Soros Foundation, Texaco, Tufts University, Turner Broadcasting, USAID, and Warnaco, to name a few. ”


    JACOB ROTHSCHILD “is also a Member of the Council for the Duchy of Cornwall for HRH The Prince of Wales……”, a “Trustee of the Prince of Wales’ Prince’s Charities Foundation. ” and in ” 2002 awarded the Order of Merit by Her Majesty the Queen. Members of the Order are limited in number to 24 and the order is given to those who have rendered exceptionally meritorious service in the field of the arts, learning, literature and science ”,_4th_Baron_Rothschild
    ” Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, President, Arts and Business awards The Prince of Wales Medal for Philanthropy 2013 to Lord Jacob Rothschild, one of the five recipients, during a ceremony on December 11, 2013 in London, England. ”

    ” Prince Charles already played polo with EVELYN DE ROTHSCHILD in his student years and later set up the Interfaith consultations with him. ” people_with_the_endless_bios.htm
    Evelyn de Rothschild ” In 1989, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II,[2] for whom he serves as a financial adviser. ”

    But the Royal Bank of Scotland, a bank controlled by the British Royal Family, is also connected with the bank Edmond De Rothschild controlled by BENJAMIN DE ROTHSCHILD and by his wife ARIANE DE ROTHSCHILD FOR EXAMPLE THROUGH THE PERSONS OF LAURA SCOLAN AND MARK PHILLIPS,ETC.. —-
    ” Benjamin de Rothschild, only son of the late Edmond de Rothschild, was a classic case of great expectations gone astray. Despite being groomed for greatness from a young age, as a teenager he skipped university and instead headed for Los Angeles with dreams of being a film producer. In LA he started taking drugs, and ended up on heroin. Meanwhile, he failed to make it into Hollywood’s charmed circle and bombed as a film-maker. ”

    2) ” In particular, this refers to the CNN television channel, which is not just being used by the CIA to distribute false information about Venezuela, but also to develop negative stereotypes of the Venezuelan government and President Maduro. There has also been biased coverage of the student street protests, which CNN described as peaceful, without mentioning the protests by militant student groups that blocked off streets, set fire to cars, attacked police officers, and threatened urban infrastructure, including the metro. Among other things, opposition activists are strewing the roads with metal barbs made out of nails, causing a sharp rise in traffic accidents. There is also the practice of extending nylon string across the road to combat motorizados – motorcyclists who deliver goods, medicines, the post and so on. These motorcyclists are usually loyal to the authorities, and are therefore seen by the opposition as a hostile force. CNN, however, does not report these kinds of details.”


    The Cable News Network (commonly referred to by its initials, CNN) is an American basic cable and satellite television channel that is owned by the Turner Broadcasting System division of Time Warner.

    Jeffrey Lawrence Bewkes (born 25 May 1952)[2] is an American media executive. He has served as CEO of Time Warner since January 1, 2008 and as President since December 2005. On January 1, 2009 he became Chairman of the Board in addition to his other duties……………………….
    After school, he worked at a Sonoma Vineyard winery and then took a job in New York City as a commercial banker with Citibank in their shipping lending unit.

    ” Citi (1812- ), also known as Citigroup, Citicorp or Citibank, is the biggest bank on Wall Street. ….It is now partly owned by not just the American government, but also by Abu Dhabi, Kuwait and a Saudi Arabian prince, Alwaleed bin Talal… ”
    ( Prince Alwaleed Received by Prince Charles, Prince of Wales at Clarence House )

    3) ” The Venezuelan government has repeatedly been issued threats and warnings by the US administration; it has been requested that the government frees those students arrested during the street protests, and sits down for talks with the opposition. Barak Obama mentioned this during a meeting with Canadian and Mexican colleagues in Toluca (Mexico) on 20 February 2014. A statement by Republican Senator John McCain sounded like an ultimatum: «We need to be ready to use military force in order to enter Venezuela and establish peace there.» The Senator noted that the operation could involve soldiers from Colombia, Peru and Chile. In addition, he emphasised that there are democratic leaders in Venezuela who are fully prepared to take on the responsibility of governing the country with the full consent of America and give her freedom. McCain also explained exactly why Washington needs «puppet democrats» in Venezuela. First and foremost, to guarantee the speedy delivery of hydrocarbons to the US. Oil deliveries from North Africa and the Middle East usually take 45 days, but only around 70 hours from Venezuela. ”


    ” In April, Mr McCain passed through London and spoke at a fund-raising dinner for expatriate Americans, where seats at the cheapest tables cost £500 a head. What caught the eye of Judicial Watch, a Washington-based foundation dedicated to combating corruption, was that the event was held “by kind permission of Lord [Jacob] Rothschild and Hon Nathaniel Rothschild” at the family home in Spencer House, St James’s, the only privately owned 17th-century palace in central London.
    The US Federal Election Committee is still investigating the allegation that Mr McCain’s campaign team broke electoral law by accepting a benefit in kind from the Rothschilds. “We haven’t heard from the FEC yet, and don’t expect to until after the campaign,” Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch said……..

    When another member of the clan, Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, married the New York businesswoman Lynn Forester, they spent the night of their wedding dinner in the White House as guests of Bill Clinton. Lady Rothschild was a fund-raiser for the Democrats, but defected to the McCain camp after her friend Hillary Clinton was beaten to the nomination by Barack Obama. ”

    ” The Queen symbolises the “best of England” to the whole world, President Barack Obama has told the BBC.
    Speaking ahead of his first state visit to the UK on Tuesday, he said the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh were “extraordinarily gracious people”.
    The president and First Lady Michelle Obama will be guests of the Queen at Buckingham Palace for three days……..
    The president told the BBC’s Andrew Marr: “I think what the Queen symbolises not just to Great Britain, but to the entire Commonwealth, and obviously the entire world, is the best of England. And we’re very proud of her.”
    He also went on to highlight the Queen’s kindness, praising how welcoming she had been when the first lady and their two daughters visited Buckingham Palace without him in June 2009.
    “She could not have been more charming and gracious to the girls,” said President Obama.” ———

    4) ” Ros-Lehtinen also plans to introduce a bill that would require the administration to take these steps. The moves from the House of Representatives have been echoed in the Senate, where the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL), Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) have introduced a resolution calling for sanctions. Menendez stated:
    “Now is the time to pursue a course of targeted sanctions by denying and revoking visas, and freezing the assets of Venezuelan officials complicit in the deaths of peaceful protestors. Human rights violators should be held accountable for the crimes they committed and their presence should not be welcome in our nation. Venezuelans today are denied basic rights, freedoms, and the ability to peacefully protest the dire economic circumstances caused by President Maduro and his government. We stand with the Venezuelan people and the brave opposition leaders in their pursuit to build a more hopeful Venezuela that embraces a bright future while discarding a failed past.”
    Marco Rubio even made the case for sanctions on NBC News’ “Meet The Press,”telling host David Gregory that, “I would like to see specific U.S. sanctions against individuals in the Maduro government that are systematically participating in the violation of human rights and anti-democratic actions ”


    In January 2006, Menendez was appointed by Governor Jon Corzine to fill the remaining year in the Senate seat from which Corzine resigned upon being elected the previous month as Governor of New Jersey.

    Jon Stevens Corzine (born January 1, 1947) is an American financial executive and politician. A Democrat, he was a United States Senator from New Jersey from 2001 to 2006 and was the 54th Governor of New Jersey from 2006 to 2010. He also worked as CEO of Goldman Sachs

    ” Officially, the Americans are working hard to stamp out heroin production in Afghanistan, but in reality they, namely the CIA, are using the proceeds from the drug trade, including the illegal drug traffic to Kosovo from Afghanistan which is facilitated mainly via the Bondsteel Base, to replenish their secret coffers, at least that’s what American newspapers have recently been writing about. Milovan Drecun reports.
    Other reports mention a U.S. connection with a member of the terrorist Kosovo Liberation Army and a close friend of Kosovo Premier Hashim Taci who are believed to have been smuggling up to 150 kilos of heroin and cocaine at a time. These criminals were chummy with a cafй owner close to the Bondsteel Base and were doing business with the American officers there, Milovan Drecun adds. ”
    ” …..In December, 2010 Swiss prosecutor and Council of Europe rapporteur Dick Marty confronted the world audiences with the Balkans’ open secret – his sensational report detailed the region’s sweeping organized crime and, particularly, the illicit human organs trafficking in which the Kosovo administration and KLA top commanders were heavily implicated. Somebody Rexep, an Albanian from the KLA, says that in Kosovo everything in and around the illegal business is in the hands of the administration and that – for fear of death – nobody has any chance to run drug or human trafficking or anything like that without the regime’s blessing (3).
    Dick Marty’s report showed that the KLA headed by Kosovo present-day premier Hashim Thaci (a notorious butcher nicknamed the Snake) kidnapped Serbs resident in the province and the Albanians suspected of collaborating with Belgrade, to traffic them to the north of Albania, where the people were killed and their organs carved out for sale on the black market. The UN, NATO, and OSCE, as well as the majority of the Western governments, pretended to be unaware of what was going on. K-144, a protected witness of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, claims that 4 million Deutsch marks landed in Thaci’s pockets as proceeds from dealing organs extracted from slain Serbs (4).
    Bernard Kouchner was the first Head of the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK). Oddly enough, the Médecins Sans Frontières group of which he was co-founder smuggled weapons when the conflict was raging in the post-Yugoslavian space and was caught red-handed at 43 checkpoints in Bosnia, 25 – in Croatia, and 14 – in Kosovo (5). The withdrawal of the Serbian police from Kosovo enabled Thaci’s gangsters to kidnap people in the province with no risk of meeting with resistance. Some sources are convinced that the kidnapped were placed and subjected to illicit extractions in the NATO bases. Indeed, 6 – 14 aircrafts took off at Camp Bondsteel NATO base in Kosovo daily, and suspicions multiply that the flights could be used to deliver human organs to recipients in West Europe, mostly in Great Britain (6).
    On January 7, 2011, 50 British surgeons voiced a call for the legalization of human organs trade, citing the steady increase in demand and the freedom of choice for those eager to be donors due to financial regards (7). No doubt, human organs trafficking has a potential to become a source of criminal enrichment on pars with the drug business. Der Spiegel argues that, in the global distribution of roles in the market of illicit transplantations, most of the buyers are found in the US, Canada, Israel, and Saudi Arabia while most of the donors – in China, India, the Philippines, Egypt, and Moldova (8). The independent Kosovo, a territory with a reputation of horror land, acts as a major trafficking hub in the framework…..”

    ” It comes as no surprise that the VANGUARD Group is also currently a major shareholder in HALLIBURTON, the longtime war profiteer in Iraq. CHENEY’s investments in the VANGUARD Group are estimated at between $25 and $86 million, since exact numbers have not been released.”

    ” The plans to build Camp BONDSTEEL under a lucrative multibillion dollar DoD contract with HALLIBURTON’s Texas based subsidiary KBR were formulated while DICK CHENEY was HALLIBURTON’s CEO.”

    5) ” .” Florida Governor Rick Scott has also called for sanctions. Although neither the House nor the Senate have passed these resolutions calling for sanctions, Secretary of State John Kerry told reporters last week that, “with respect to Venezuela, Congress has urged sanctions.”
    The call for sanctions has also been trumpeted by the press, with Miami Heraldcolumnist Andres Oppenheimer saying that if Venezuela does not respond to “international diplomatic pressures,” then the Congress “should revoke the U.S. visas of Venezuelan government and military leaders.” Further, Otto Reich, the former U.S. Ambassador to Venezuela and Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs at the time of the U.S.-backed coup of 2002, wrote an opinion piece for the National Review titled “It’s Time for Sanctions in Venezuela.”
    None of the members of congress nor any of the resolutions mention the fact that of the 18 tragic deaths in Venezuela since the protests began, many were not protestors, but individuals removing barricades and motorcyclists killed by wires strung across streets, or by crashing into barricades. In one case, a member of the Venezuelan National Guard was shot and killed. The Senate resolution makes no call for both sides to refrain from violence nor does it condemn the violent actions of some from the protest movement, however it does deplore “the use of excessive and unlawful force against peaceful demonstrators in Venezuela and the inexcusable use of violence…to intimidate the country’s political opposition.” ”


    ” In the 1990s, Scott was a partner of George W. Bush as co-owner of the Texas Rangers.”

Among other positions held, he has been the President’s Special Envoy for the Western Hemisphere; Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs; United States Ambassador to Venezuela; and Assistant Administrator of the US Agency for International Development, a recess appointment. In 2003, Bush appointed him US Special Envoy to the Western Hemisphere…………….

    ” John Kerry: Official Birthday of Queen Elizabeth II
    Friday, 14 June 2013, 4:06 pm
    Press Release: US State Department

    On the Occasion of the Official Birthday of Queen Elizabeth II
    On behalf of President Obama and the American people, I send warmest congratulations and best wishes to the people of the United Kingdom in honor of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Official Birthday on June 15.
    There’s something remarkable in just how deeply connected we Americans feel to Her Majesty.
    In the United States, we revere our special connection to what we call the Greatest Generation, the stoic men and women who persevered and won the second World War. Perhaps that is why we also share such regard for Her Majesty, who came of age in Great Britain’s own Greatest Generation.
    It grew up with grit and grace in the face of enormous sacrifice, and in victory forever deepened the special relationship and bond between our two nations. Today it sets the standard for great dignity in the face of great challenge.
    So, in the same year that we celebrate the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty’s Coronation, this occasion is a special opportunity to pay tribute to the Queen’s remarkable life and legacy, and to recognize her resolute leadership in the UK, the Commonwealth, and throughout the world.
    That I made my first overseas visit as Secretary of State earlier this year to the UK should be no surprise, for Great Britain remains the indispensable partner of my country.
    As you mark this special day with the spectacular Trooping the Colour ceremony, it is with deep respect and admiration that I extend congratulations to Her Majesty the Queen and to the British people. ”

    ” An intriguing connection exists between John Kerry, the senator who is running for the American presidency, and the British Royal Family.
    During the early Nineties, before he married his present wife Teresa Heinz, Kerry enjoyed a brief romance with Catherine Oxenberg, the actress who played Joan Collins’s daughter Amanda Carrington in the TV series Dynasty.
    She is also a second cousin of Prince Charles through her Chelsea-based mother, Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia…………”


    ” The greatest collection of status quo enthusiasts can be found at Central Intelligence Agency headquarters in Langley, Virginia. As nations around the world attempt to distance themselves from Washington’s financial, military, and political grip, the CIA is reaching into its past playbook to deal with wayward governments.
    After helping to foment a political rebellion in Ukraine against the democratically-elected government of President Viktor Yanukovych, Washington’s propaganda apparatus, which is centered on the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and George Soros’s Open Society Institute (OSI), has focused on Venezuela.
    Venezuela identified three U.S. embassy officials in Caracas meeting with opposition protesters and helping to plan anti-government riots throughout the country. The three U.S. «consular officers» — Breann Marie McCusker, Jeffrey Gordon Elsen and Kristopher Lee Clark – were ordered expelled by the Venezuelan government. Last October, Venezuela expelled another three U.S. diplomats – chargé d’affaires Kelly Keiderling, David Moo, and Elizabeth Hoffman — for involvement in fomenting domestic unrest. The six so-called diplomats were involved in activities often associated with «official cover» CIA agents.
    Just as was the case with U.S. ambassador to Kyiv Geoffrey Pyatt and the visiting foul-mouthed Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs Victoria Nuland meeting with Ukrainian opposition leaders to help plan anti-government protests, the American diplomats in Caracas were charged with meeting opposition forces loyal to Leopoldo Lopez, the Harvard-trained agent for U.S. corporate interests. The Venezuelan government charged that Lopez, like the other Venezuelan opposition leader, Henrique Capriles Radonski, received covert financial support from the CIA via such organizations as the NED and USAID to plan protests and launch economic sabotage against Venezuela…………………………………………………………
    While propping up Venezuela’s opposition leaders with U.S. dollars, the United States and its bankers have mercilessly attacked the Venezuelan currency and economy by using the corporate media to spread false stories about basic commodities shortages in Venezuela, including toilet paper, salt, and sugar. This is an old CIA trick that was long used against the government of Cuba and other nations opposed to U.S. imperialism.
    The same scare tactic of rampant scarcity of goods is being used by the CIA to undermine the government of Red Shirt-supported Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra with U.S.-fed rumors of rice shortages in the country due to a scheme to sell Thai rice to China. The CIA-led campaign against Yingluck has resulted in charges being filed against the Prime Minister by a typical Soros «civil society» contrivance – the National Counter-Corruption Commission — the brainchild of Yellow Shirt royalists and phony constitutional «reformers» like octogenarian Amorn Chantarasomboon.
    Just as with the abortive CIA coup against President Hugo Chavez in April 2002, the CIA and its local worthies have launched propaganda attacks against PDVSA, the state-owned Venezuelan oil company, which owns CITGO in the United States. The CIA’s propaganda organs are pushing the meme that PDVSA is so corrupt and moribund that Venezuela is being forced to import gasoline from the United States. The story is patently false but corporate media operations, including those operated or influenced by the Soros network of global propagandists, are gladly reporting the falsehood as fact.
    The corporate media, especially The Miami Herald, which caters to the whims and fantasies of Venezuela’s exiled oligarchs in southern Florida as much as it does to right-wing Cubans and nationalistic Zionists in its gated-community readership area, has also falsely claimed that Venezuela is experiencing a massive crime wave because the government of President Nicolas Maduro is unable to provide security for the population. This, too, is an old CIA trick that has been used to undermine the political stability of governments around the world, including Iraq, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, by assisting home grown terrorists and criminal syndicates in carrying out attacks on the civilian population. ”

    ” While hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews were being shipped off to the death camps, George Soros accompanied his phony godfather on his appointed rounds, confiscating property from the Jews.”


    ” Soros began his sordid career in hedge funds (a combination of a betting parlor and a Ponzi scheme contrivance) in the late 1960s under Georges Coulon Karlweis, the vice chairman of Banque Privée Edmond Rothschild [OWNED BY BENJAMIN DE ROTHSCHILD AND BY HIS WIFE ARIANE DE ROTHSCHILD] in Geneva, Switzerland.
    In the late 1960s, Karlweis provided Rothschild funds to Soros’s Quota and Quantum hedge funds. Karlweis was the grand master of global financial chicanery and shysterism, having been linked to schemes of Bernard Cornfeld’s International Overseas Services (IOS), the firm that Robert Vesco looted before he went into fugitive status. Karlweis also had his fingerprints on the antics of Michael Milken, Drexel Burnham Lambert’s junk bond racketeer.
    Soros has set himself up as a deep-pocketed prophet for liberal causes, yet he has diminished true progressives by spreading his ill-gotten profits through various front organizations. Soros’s Open Society Institute has supported various pro-democracy front organizations but these groups serve the interests of shadowy global financial corporations, like the Blackstone Group.
    Blackstone’s former director was Lord JACOB ROTHSCHILD, Soros’ old pal and financial colleague.”
    ” Blackstone was founded in 1985 as a mergers and acquisitions boutique by Peter G. Peterson and Stephen A. Schwarzman, who had previously worked together at Lehman Brothers, Kuhn, Loeb Inc. ”
    Peter G. Peterson ” is founding Chairman of the Peterson Institute for International Economics ”
    Lynn Forester de Rothschild, the wife of EVELYN DE ROTHSCHILD, is a director of the Peterson Institute for International Economics.
