George Soros’ meddling in Europe – UN – Federalism in small nations
the 85-year old Hungaria-born American billionaire George Soros has his influence on the direction of the Human Rights Watch and International Crisis Group; he disburses funds for – through his Open Society Foundation - controversial programs/projects undertaken by the United Nations Office of Under-Secretary General (Political) one of which designed in 2012 was federalism for ethnically divided nations such as Nepal and Sri Lanka. Most recently, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban ripped Soros of interfering in Europe.
Soros also has donated to Media Matters and has been a major financial contributor to the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank founded by Podesta who was Hillary Clinton’s campaign chief at 2016 presidential election.
Now the Republican Party Congressmen in Washington have raised the issue of USAID funds going to George Soros’ projects.
Soros was in Sri Lanka last year January at the invitation of the Sirisena-Wickremasinghe administration to address an economic forum in Colombo at which he delivered a bleak outlook for the world economy and pledge to invest in this South Asian nation.
Republican lawmakers in Washington started asking questions about whether U.S. tax dollars also were being used to fund Soros projects in the small, conservative-led country of Macedonia and in other Asian Countries.
Rep. Christopher Smith, R-N.J., led a group of House lawmakers in writing to Ambassador Jess Baily -- an Obama appointee -- demanding answers. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, also expressed concerns about USAID money going to Soros' Open Society Foundations as part of a broader concern that the U.S. Embassy has been taking sides in party politics.
“I have received credible reports that, over the past few years, the US Mission to Macedonia has actively intervened in the party politics of Macedonia, as well as the shaping of its media environment and civil society, often favoring groups of one political persuasion over another,” Lee said in his letter.
Lee’s staff recently met with Macedonia lawmakers, who also passed on a white paper from a citizen’s initiative called “Stop Operation Soros” which alleges U.S. money has been funding hard-left causes in the country -- including violent riots in the streets, as well as a Macedonian version of Saul Alinsky’s far-left handbook “Rules for Radicals.”
In an extensive 40-page dossier, the group alleges USAID money is being used to fund activists and exclusively left-wing media groups as a way to sway the country’s politics.
In a reply dated Feb. 9, the State Department told Lee that the Mission in the country has worked to advance U.S. interests “in a non-biased, non-partisan, objective and transparent manner.” The letter claimed U.S. government assistance has not funded partisan political activities in Macedonia, but noted that from 2002 to the present, USAID had provided three grants to Foundation Open Society – Macedonia (FOSM).
Together, the concerns reflect growing conservative pushback against Soros' operations in Europe.
Here’s more on George Soros:
The United Nations, in the years 2012 and 2013, has been holding a number of closed-door meetings and seminars at which the partition of UN member states has been discussed. Most of the meetings have been held under the direction of the UN Interagency Framework for Coordination on Preventive Action (the Framework Team or FT). The FT is directly under the control of the under-secretary-general of Political Affairs. This number two position in the UN has been for decades occupied by former US State Department retirees.
It is reported that the FT has also trained certain activists around the world, particularly in developing and other countries with pro-western governments, to use “the system” to effect change. It is a well-known fact that the entire FT operation at the UN is bankrolled with George Soros money.
When the process commenced in 2012, Sri Lanka, apart from Nepal, was also a target for the identity federalism engineers.
Much of the work of the FT was carried out under the direction of an American, Gay Rosemblum-Kumar. She heads up the Conflict Management Capacity-Building Project and the Peacebuilding Portal. While the names of these groups appear benign, they are at the center of a global plan by Soros, his NGOs and the global bankers to redraw the map of the world to suit the needs of multinational corporations and the United States.
Observers strongly believe that the most alarming aspect of the FT's work is aimed at dividing existing nation-states into smaller entities. At a 2012 FT meeting titled "Nepal in Transition," it was clear what strategy is being employed to carry out such divisions. The division of Nepal, with the ultimate goal being the marginalization of the powerful Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), foresees "identity federalism," the first step before actual secession of federal components.
Under the Soros-funded project, Sri Lanka is been considered a good candidate for the establishment of a federal structure along ethnic lines.
To augment its identity federalism initiatives, Soros NGOs are also involved in creating a number of "partition studies" programs at major universities with international relations programs.
Myanmar is also a target for the identity federalists and partition specialists. The UN and Soros goal is to split Myanmar into various ethnic-based nations. Some of these nations would then provide the United States with military bases from which it can engage in intelligence, insurgency, and other operations in southern China. The human rights issue in Myanmar and China has been used by Soros as a tool to gain influence in both nations.
