What Soros wants, what he intends to do is to take power in America.
George Soros called defeating President Bush "the central focus of
my life" and a "matter of life and death. More here
Soros is a terrible figure undermining the very foundation of America. His treachery looms darkly over the great American landcape. His black hand is in all things big and small. The graft, corruption inescapable. Soros has bought the Democratic Party lock, stock, and barrel thanks to John McCain’s-McCain/Feingold Finance Reform.
Soros pays off the media as journalists have been exposed on the U.N. Payroll churning out UN propaganda. Soros and Ted Turner have gone sofar as to pay for journalism prizes.
Soros is all over the UN. Mark Malloch Brown, the Deputy Secretary General,
lives in a house Soros rents to him at below-market rates. In violation UN staff regulations.
Mr. Vales asked Inner City Press to hold off publishing this story.
When Mr. Vales then said that no response would be possible until next
week, Inner City Press decided to wait four more hours for any written
responses, and then publish. Click link below Soro’s Shadow party and read it all.
George Soros is working through the UN to
negotiate a treaty that will ban private ownership of firearms on a worldwide basis.
Soros Shadow party means to take America. This is a wildly alarming piece.
FP: How does Soros use his influence over the Party?
POE: The Shadow Party is always changing. New groups form and old ones
dissolve. For instance, America Coming Together — which raised $135
million for Democrat get-out-the-vote drives in 2004 – has been
mothballed, at least for now. The most active Shadow Party groups
today are probably the Center for American Progress, America Votes,
Democracy Alliance, the New Democrat Network, the New Politics
Institute, ACORN and, of course, MoveOn.org.
FP:How does Soros use his influence over the Party?
POE:He uses it to push the Party leftward. He is systematically purging
the Party of moderates and packing it with radicals. For instance, the
Shadow Party ousted Senator Joseph Lieberman in favor of Ned Lamont,
because Lieberman refused to support a “cut-and-run” policy in Iraq.
FP:Isn’t that just politics as usual, though – wealthy fat cats funding their favorite candidates?
POE: Funding ordinary candidates, be they Democrats or Republicans, would be politics as usual. Funding radical candidates who seek America’s destruction is not. Money is a tool. It can be used for good or evil. The Shadow Party is using it for evil.
FP: Does the Shadow Party really seek to destroy ?
POE: Judge for yourself. In his new book The Age of Fallibility, Soros writes, “The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States” He
announced in 2003 that it is necessary to “puncture the bubble of
American supremacy.” Soros is working systematically to achieve that
the economic front, he is shorting the dollar in global currency
markets, trying to force a devaluation. At the same time, Soros is
orchestrating a nationwide movement to encourage mass immigration into
the United States, and to mandate the provision of free social services to illegal immigrants. These measures alone have the potential to bankrupt the nation. However, if they fail, Soros has another program that will certainly finish the job. A
long-time Soros operative named Jeffrey Sachs has been placed in charge
of the United Nations Millennium Project – a global war on poverty
designed to transfer wealth from rich countries to poor ones. Sachs is currently demanding that American taxpayers turn over $140 billion per year to his global welfare bureaucracy.
the political front, Soros has poured massive funding into such groups
as the ACLU, which uses lawsuits to hamstring the War on Terror. Soros also funds Amnesty International, whose US
executive director has called for the arrest of President Bush as a war
criminal. Another Soros-funded group, The Center for Constitutional
Rights, has drawn up detailed articles of impeachment against the
FP: Why don’t more Americans know that Soros is pushing these destructive policies?
Poe: The Shadow Party operates through deception. It
uses the Democratic Party as camouflage. By posing as ordinary
Democrats, Shadow Party candidates trick mainstream voters into
supporting them. Their true agenda remains concealed. As Soros writes in The Age of Fallibility, “[T]he Democratic Party does not stand for the policies that I advocate; indeed, if it did, it could not be elected.”
The fact is, Soros aspires to establish a neo-socialist order in America. In the Atlantic Monthly
of February 1997, he wrote, “The main enemy of the open society, I
believe, is no longer the communist but the capitalist threat.”
FP: Tell me about Soros’ efforts to rewrite the U.S. Constitution.
POE: Mr. Soros advocates deep structural change in our system of government. In April 2005, Yale
hosted an event called, “The Constitution in 2020”, whose stated goal
was to formulate “a progressive vision of what the Constitution ought
to be.” Of the event’s five institutional sponsors, one was Soros’
flagship foundation The Open Society Institute, and two others were
Soros-funded Shadow Party groups; the Center for American Progress and
the American Constitution Society. We nicknamed that event the Shadow
FP: What parts of our Constitution does Soros want to change?
Poe: He appears to have a special animus against the Bill of Rights. Take freedom of worship, for instance. Soros seems to favor some sort of religious apartheid, with fundamentalist Christians banished to a socio-political Bantustan. For example, in a New Yorker interview of October 18, 2004,
he said of President Bush, “The separation of church and state, the
bedrock of our democracy, is clearly undermined by having a born-again
there’s the Second Amendment. Soros has provided massive funding to
anti-gun groups and anti-gun litigators. The unprecedented assault on
gun rights during the 1990s was largely bankrolled by Soros.
FP: You and David Horowitz have also accused Soros of promoting political censorship in America
Most Americans do not realize that the McCain-Feingold Act of 2002 was
a Trojan Horse. Its stated purpose was to reform campaign finance
law. Its actual effect is to regulate political speech. McCain-Feingold Act was a Shadow Party initiative. Soros and a group of leftwing foundations spent over $140 million to get it passed.
Here’s how it works. McCain-Feingold
authorizes federal election officials to decide who may or may not run
political advertisements during election season, and what sorts of ads
they may run. In September 2004, a federal judge expanded
McCain-Feingold’s reach by ordering the FEC to begin censoring the
Internet. Blogger outrage forced the FEC to back down, but
McCain-Feingold remains on the books. Sooner or later, it will be
enforced, to the full extent its creators envisioned. We can thank Mr.
Soros for these developments.
FP: Of course, we can also thank Republican Senator John McCain, who co-sponsored the bill.
Poe: Yes, but McCain has a long history of collusion with the Shadow Party.
the 2000 presidential campaign, Soros sponsored two so-called “Shadow
Conventions,” held at the same time and in the same cities as the
Republican and Democratic Conventions, in Philadelphia Los Angeles respectively. Their purpose was to promote campaign finance reform. John McCain gave the keynote speech at the Philadelphia “Soros Convention” (as columnist Robert Novak dubbed it), while Russ Feingold did so at the LA event.
service to the Shadow Party brought him financial benefits. In 2001,
McCain founded the Reform Institute for Campaign and Election Issues.
The Institute’s major funders were mostly leftwing foundations. Prominent among them was George Soros’ Open Society Institute.
FP: You and David Horowitz charge that Hillary Clinton has a secret alliance with Soros.
POE: That’s right. They have to keep their alliance secret because any
political coordination between them would violate federal election
law. Soros’s Shadow Party is barred by law from coordinating its
activities with official Democratic Party candidates, such as Hillary.
It’s a poorly-kept secret, however. At the annual Take Back America
conference on June 3, 2004, Hillary gave Soros a glowing
introduction, saying, “We need people like George Soros, who is
fearless, and willing to step up when it counts.” More importantly, her
right hand man, Harold Ickes – who served the Clinton White House as
deputy chief of staff – now serves Soros as de facto CEO of the Shadow
Party. Ickes plays a significant role in running Hillary’s political
machine and Soros’ Shadow Party simultaneously. This is arguably
illegal, but no controlling authority seems willing to intervene.
[…]One insider told a UPI reporter that the Center is “the official
Hillary Clinton think tank.” Robert Dreyfuss of The Nation wrote
of the Center, “It’s not completely wrong to see it as a shadow
government, a kind of Clinton White House-in-exile – or a White House
staff in readiness for President Hillary Clinton.” The Center for
American Progress received its start-up funding from Soros and was, in
fact, Soros’ brainchild.

NATIONS, August 24 (updated Aug. 28, 1 pm) — UN Secretary-General Kofi
Annan has let eight weeks pass without responding to a request for
information about senior UN officials receiving housing subsidies from
their country of nationality, it emerged on Thursday. Former Deputy
Secretary Louise Frechette was asked if she received such subsidies and
said no, according to UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric. Despite a
specific request from Inner City Press at 5 p.m. Thursday for a similar
response from Jean-Marie Guehenno, the head of UN peacekeeping, five
hours later by 10 p.m. deadline no response was received. Deputy UN
peacekeeping spokesman Hernan Vales said that since Mr. Guehenno is out
of the country, no response will be possible until next week.
High-placed sources within UN Headquarters showed Inner City
Press a copy of a letter from U.S. Ambassador John R. Bolton, dated
June 27, 2006, to Secretary-General. Kofi Annan. The letter asked Mr.
Annan for information about UN officials who receive housing subsidies
from their countries of nationality in contravention of their duties,
under Article 100.1 of the UN Charter, to "refrain from any action
which might reflect on their position as international officials
responsible only to the Organization" of the UN.
Inquiry Into Housing Subsidies Contrary to UN Charter Goes Ignored for 8 Weeks, As Head UN Peacekeeper Does Not Respond

UNITED NATIONS, August 24 (updated Aug. 28, 1 pm) — UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan has let eight weeks pass without responding to a request for information about senior UN officials receiving housing subsidies from their country of nationality, it emerged on Thursday. Former Deputy Secretary Louise Frechette was asked if she received such subsidies and said no, according to UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric. Despite a specific request from Inner City Press at 5 p.m. Thursday for a similar response from Jean-Marie Guehenno, the head of UN peacekeeping, five hours later by 10 p.m. deadline no response was received. Deputy UN peacekeeping spokesman Hernan Vales said that since Mr. Guehenno is out of the country, no response will be possible until next week.
High-placed sources within UN Headquarters showed Inner City Press a copy of a letter from U.S. Ambassador John R. Bolton, dated June 27, 2006, to Secretary-General. Kofi Annan. The letter asked Mr. Annan for information about UN officials who receive housing subsidies from their countries of nationality in contravention of their duties, under Article 100.1 of the UN Charter, to "refrain from any action which might reflect on their position as international officials responsible only to the Organization" of the UN.
One week ago, Inner City Press asked the deputy spokesman of the U.S. Mission, Benjamin Chang, if any response to the letter, whose existence had yet to be publicly disclosed, had been received. Inner City Press also asked if the U.S. Mission was aware if the Secretary-General has filed his required financial disclosure. While the latter question has yet to be answered, Mr. Chang stated that while he was unaware of Ambassador Bolton’s letter he would check.
Late on the afternoon of August 24, the lead spokesman of the U.S. Mission Richard A. Grenell called Inner City Press offering to fax a copy of John Bolton’s letter. His office told Inner City Press that no response has been received, eight weeks after the letter was sent to Kofi Annan.
Inner City Press then immediately provided a copy of the letter to UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric, and asked if and why not response had been provided, and for responses specifically on Louise Frechette and Jean-Marie Guehenno. These two individuals were named to Inner City Press by the sources who first showed glimpses of the letter.
Mr. Dujarric responded, as to Canadian Ms. Frechette, that "I asked her and she said no." As to Jean-Marie Guehenno, Annan’s spokesman’s office did not provide a denial, nor any other response for the following five hours.
Guehenno, back in Haiti
On August 22, at the UN’s formal noon press conference, Inner City Press had inquired into the location and activities of Mr. Guehenno, whose deputy Hedi Annabi had been conducting the UN peacekeeping work of meeting with potential troop contributors to the UN’s Lebanon force. The spokesman said that Mr. "Guehenno is in France on personal business." Video here, from Minute 42:23.
In the spirit of disclosure, Inner City Press has previously interviewed Jean-Marie Guehenno concerning this year’s loss of focus, at least in Africa,on peacekeeping and concerning the offer of a colonel’s position in the Congolese Army to Peter Karim, whose militia took hostage seven UN peacekeepers earlier until early last month. Mr. Guehenno, who had previously told Inner City Press that Peter Karim "is on drugs," more recently explained the negotiations as solved because the hostage takers "just wanted jobs." Mr. Guehenno also responded to questions about the UN’s Congo Mission’s self-exoneration regarding reported abuse at Kazana in Eastern Congo by saying the report was still being considered, a statement yet to be followed up. Video here, Minutes 23:50 to 30:30.
Thursday afternoon, less than an hour after the U.S. Mission provided a copy of John Bolton’s letter, Inner City Press sought out lead UN Peacekeeping spokesman Nick Birnback but was told that he is out until August 29. Deputy spokesman for peacekeeping Hernan Vales said that "all of these issues are personal and confidential" and are "not really work related."
As Inner City Press, and the letter, pointed out to Mr. Vales, the UN’s bulletin on financial disclosure and declaration of interest statements, Document ST/SGB/2006/6, requires the disclosure of "any form of supplement, direct or indirect, to the United Nations emoluments, including provisions of housing or subsidized housing or any… benefit, remuneration or in kind contribution from any government, governmental agency or other non United Nations source aggregating $250 or more…". Article 100.1 of the UN Charter requires that Secretariat staff "refrain from any action which might reflect on their position as international officials responsible only to the Organization" of the UN.
Asked to respond to this logic, that senior UN official need to have their allegiance be, and to seen to be, only to the UN, and not their country of nationality, Mr. Vales asked Inner City Press to hold off publishing this story. When Mr. Vales then said that no response would be possible until next week, Inner City Press decided to wait four more hours for any written responses, and then publish.
Update of August 25, 5 p.m. — Just prior to the UN noon press briefing on Friday, Kofi Annan’s spokesman called Inner City Press aside and said, "I have answers for you, if you’ll wait until after the briefing."
"What are the answers?"
"We’re aware of the letter and we’re responding to it. These are obviously issues we are looking at through the financial disclosures."
The spokesman issued an off-the-record, then subsequently on-the-record, denial as to Jean-Marie Guehenno. On other issues he has promised to respond.
Update of August 28, 1 p.m. — At Monday’s noon briefing, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric answered questions about the housing subsidies by saying it is still being looked into.
Also Monday Inner City Press asked Ambassador Bolton three questions: his view on the Secretariat’s non-response for two months, what the letter was getting at, and whether he is aware if the Secretary-General has filed in required financial disclosure form. Video here, from Minute 8:20.
Amb. Bolton answered that the housing subsidies to which the letter referred appear to violate UN regulations, that he wanted an answer, and that he is not aware if Mr. Annan has filed his financial disclosure form. This last, Inner City Press asked in connection with its inquiry into the purchase of part of Compass / ESS, embroiled in a United Nations scandal, by Sweden’s Wallenberg family, of which the UN’s Secretary General’s wife is a member, click here for that August 28 story by Inner City Press.

Text of letter
June 27, 2006
Dear Mr. Secretary-General,
A recent review of your bulletin on financial disclosure and declaration of interest statemen
ts (ST/SGB/2006/6) raised a few questions about acceptance of benefits by UN staff members, their spouses and dependent children. The financial disclosure regulations refer, for example, to "Any form of supplement, direct or indirect, to the United Nations emoluments, including provisions of housing or subsidized housing or any… benefit, remuneration or in kind contribution from any government, governmental agency or other non United Nations source aggregating $250 of more…"
Any acceptance of benefits should, of course, not contravene the Charter requirements that Secretariat staff "refrain from any action which might reflect on their position as international officials responsible only to the Organization (Art 100.1). It is therefore important that there be complete transparency with regard to such benefits. We think that it is essential that even the appearance of action inconsistent with article 100 of the Charter be avoided.
To this end, please make available to member states the following information: the number of staff members of the United Nations required to file disclosures who have received such housing or subsidized housing or other benefits,; the source of such benefits; and the value of such housing or housing subsidies or other benefits. We recognize that there may be a need to maintain confidentiality in regard to certain information required in connection with the financial disclosure regulations. However, any such requirement need not and should not restrict the disclosure of the type of information that we are requesting.
John R. Bolton
