WAYNE MADSEN : Formula For Austerity And War

Obama has already stolen everything there is to steal from Americans to finance his illegal wars and now the White House criminals set their sights on Social Security and Medicare to keep the bogus "war on terror" rolling down the tracks  

By Wayne Madsen

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 "colour 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 bĂȘte 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.

CNN scum led the charge to dismember Greece for their CIA/corporate masters

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.

Former CIA Boss David Petraeus : U.S. Should Arm Al Qaeda

Disgraced General, CIA weenie-waver Betrayus just does not seem to get the fact that he needs to find the biggest rock he can to hide under as his former bosses look down that barrel at war crimes trials  


Former CIA boss and 4-star general David Petraeus – who still (believe it or not) holds a lot of sway in Washington – suggests we should arm Al Qaeda to fight ISIS.

From mishandling classified information to
diddling Paula Broadwell, Petraeus is simply
a complete and total fuck-up
Members of al Qaeda’s branch in Syria have a surprising advocate in the corridors of American power: retired Army general and former CIA Director David Petraeus.

The former commander of U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan has been quietly urging U.S. officials to consider using so-called moderate members of al Qaeda’s Nusra Front to fight ISIS in Syria, four sources familiar with the conversations, including one person who spoke to Petraeus directly, told The Daily Beast.

He’s not alone … As we’ve previously shown, other mainstream American figures support arming Al Qaeda … and ISIS.

Initially, Barak Mendelsohn – an Associate Professor of Political Science at Haverford College, a Senior Fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute, and a five year veteran of the Israeli army – argues in the Council on Foreign Relations’ publication Foreign Affairs that the U.S. should support Al Qaeda … as a way to counter ISIS.

The instability in the Middle East following the Arab revolutions and the meteoric rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) require that Washington rethink its policy toward al Qaeda, particularly its targeting of Zawahiri.

Destabilizing al Qaeda at this time may in fact work against U.S. efforts to defeat ISIS.

Many mainstream players are suggesting that Al Nusra – the main Al Qaeda group in Syria – “re-brand”, so that it can pretend it is moderate … and so receive direct U.S. backing. See this, this, this, this, this and this.

Not to be outdone, influential New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman asks if we should arm ISIS to counter Iranian influence.

The U.S. actually did knowingly support Al Qaeda in Libya. And also in Syria.

And we actually ARE supporting ISIS to some extent:

NATO member Turkey was busted buying huge quantities of oil from ISIS (its main source of funding), and bombing ISIS’ main on-the-ground enemy – Kurdish soldiers – using its air force. 

Many also say that Turkey has long been directly supporting ISIS.

The Israeli air force has bombed near the Syrian capital of Damascus, and attacked agricultural facilities and warehouses (the Syrian government is the other main opponent of ISIS in Syria besides the Kurds). The Israeli military recently admitted supporting Syrian jihadis. And see this.

Mainstream U.S. writers such as Thomas Friedman have called for America to support ISIS.

Obama having problems figuring out who is who? Just ask John McCain

Republican Senator Ted Cruz opposed U.S. military intervention in Syria, saying the U.S. military shouldn’t be “Al Qaeda’s air force.” Similarly, former Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich said that striking Syria would turn the United States military into “al-Qaeda’s air force.” (ISIS is just a re-branded name for Al Qaeda).

Indeed, NBC News, the Wall Street Journal, CNN and others report that the U.S. has already committed to provide air power to support Muslim jihadis in Syria.

So Turkey, Israel and the U.S. are all now acting as ISIS’ air force in order to oust the Syrian government … again. (Washington Blog, August 3, 2015)

Truly, America’s foreign policy is insane.
