Op/Ed: George Soros by Richard Poe

By Shadow Party author Richard Poe


 

            In a series of investigative reports this week, Glenn Beck has been analyzing the five-point strategy by which George Soros and his Open Society Institute have destabilized and overturned governments in several countries, including Yugoslovia in 2000, Georgia in 2003 and Ukraine, in the so-called “Orange Revolution” of 2004.  Compelling evidence indicates that Soros may have employed a similar strategy in Kenya, but with far more gruesome results.

Following Kenya’s disputed elections of December 2007, activists funded by Soros’ Open Society Institute demanded that the election be overturned.  The country erupted into violence, leaving more than 1,100 people dead and some 350,000 homeless.  Thousands were injured, tortured, mutilated and raped.

In his five-point regime-change strategy, Soros, 1) infiltrates countries with his operatives, under the cover of humanitarian aid; 2) takes control of the air waves by creating “independent media” under his own control; 3) destabilizes the targeted country with financial manipulations and political agitation, 4) waits for an election, then disrupts it with charges of voter fraud, then; 5) takes the streets with armies of activist youth whom Soros has recruited, trained and funded, all demanding that the incumbent step down.  The formula often works.  In theory, it is supposed to produce a “bloodless” coup, in which few people are killed or harmed.  Things went tragically wrong in Kenya, however.

Soros began operations in Kenya in 2004.[1]  On June 1, 2005, he officially launched the Open Society Initiative for East Africa (OSIEA), with headquarters in Nairobi, and a budget of $1.1 million.[2]  An overriding goal of the new East African initiative was “to promote public participation in democratic governance” and to “promote conditions for a free, fair, and nonviolent general election in Kenya in 2007,” according to official announcements.[3]

If indeed Soros wished to ensure a “free, fair and nonviolent” election for Kenya in 2007, he chose a curious way of going about it.  His Kenyan activists followed the familiar five steps.  As in previous operations, Soros began by mobilizing youth groups for political action and established what he called “independent media.”

His Youth Wake Up! campaign lured thousands of young people to all-day music events, which doubled as recruiting venues.  Through the Youth Wake Up! program, Kenyan youth were instructed in “nonviolent political activism.”[4] At the same time, Soros funded a youth radio station called Koch FM in Korogocho, “one of Nairobi’s largest and most violent slums,” as it was described in OSI’s 2005 annual report.  Koch FM intermingled music broadcasts with coaching on techniques of “political participation.”  The station’s signal was expected to reach over a million Nairobi slumdwellers.[5] 

As it happened, Nairobi slums, including Korogocho, became epicenters of

post-election violence in December 2007, as protesters battled riot police in

the streets.[6]

            The election of December 27, 2007 pitted challenger Raila Odinga against sitting president Mwai Kibaki.  Odinga led the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), which was reportedly named after Victor Yushchenko’s “Orange Revolution” in the Ukraine.[7] The name is significant, since Yushchenko seized power through mass street demonstrations, after alleging voter fraud.  Was Odinga planning a similar move?

            In the December 2007 election, voting irregularities were reported on both sides.  Kibaki claimed a narrow victory in a questionable vote count, and Odinga contested the results.  Also contesting Kibaki’s victory was a coalition of Kenyan activist groups which would soon become known as Kenyans for Peace, Truth and Justice (KPTJ). KPTJ activist Shailja Patel later wrote, “Behind the scenes of KPTJ was civil society powerhouse, the Soros-funded Open Society Institute for East Africa.”  Patel writes:[8]

“Within hours, they [KPTJ] had released a statement which denounced the credibility of the electoral process… and appealed to the international community not to recognize Kibaki as president. … The [KPTJ] direct action team would meet daily, defying the government ban on public assembly, providing a public forum for Kenyans across all sectors and ethnicities to channel their outrage into activism.” [9]

            Unfortunately, many Kenyans chose to “channel their outrage” into horrific acts of violence.  Documents filed by the International Criminal Court (ICC) note that, “the attacks against the civilian population in Kenya were both widespread and systematic,” and were allegedly conducted “by members of organised groups associated with the main political parties”  including Kibaki’s PNU party and Odinga’s ODM party.  ICC documents state that, “Political leaders … allegedly recruited gangs of youths and transported them to strategic points to unleash terror, killing and destroying property belonging to [ethnic] communities aligned to the rival party.”  In a two-month period, an estimated 1,133 people were killed, and 3,561 injured.  Hundreds of women were raped, and hundreds of people tortured.  About 350,000 were driven from their homes.[10]

            The Soros-funded KPTJ denies any responsibility for the violence.  Still, the violence helped their cause.  The election was overturned.  International arbitrators negotiated a peace deal, in which Odinga now shares power with Kibaki.  Once more, a team of Soros-funded activists managed to stop an election in its tracks.  Once more, Soros altered a country’s destiny.  But this time, the price was high.  Whether intentionally or not, Soros’ Kenya operation cost many lives.

Last month, Soros donated $1 million to a leftwing activist group called Media Matters for America.  The money is to be used to muzzle Fox News, and, in particular, to silence talk show host Glenn Beck.  Soros says that he donated the money because “the incendiary rhetoric of Fox News may incite violence.”  Given what happened in Kenya, it is difficult to take Soros’ moralizing at face value.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.

'I NEVER thought I'd talk about this': Was Glenn Beck's CHILLING dream actually a WARNING?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck decided to share a very unusual, extremely vivid dream he had ten years ago — a dream he thought he'd never talk about on the air until he began to see it as a warning that we should all know about.

"I never ever thought I would talk about this on the air, but I feel compelled to tell you that seasons have changed again, and it is becoming more and more apparent. You need to know what you're dealing with," Glenn began.

"If you are a long-time listener of this program, you know that one of the reasons I left New York ... was that I had a medical condition. Part of it was brought on by no REM sleep for about 10 years ... and for 10 years, I never had a dream," he explained. "However, during this period I had what could be described as a dream. I do not believe it was."

"In this 'dream' ... I am in a hallway of the White House. And I'm walking into a big room where there's a bunch of cubicles, and people look up like, 'who's walking in?' There are people behind me, but I don't know who they are yet. I just know I'm being pushed forward by them," Glenn continued. "I realize that everybody in the White House is terrified of who's ever behind me ... I glance back and I see people that are in uniforms that I've never seen before. I have seen them since, but that will be for some other time...."

"So, these guys in the uniforms are in the hallway, and one guy says, 'him, him, and him, take them out' ... and I'm the only one still sitting at the table. They go out ... then I hear three gunshots and they say, 'yeah, that happened pretty quickly for them. However, you, we're going to get to know ... because you really have no idea who you're dealing with.' And that's when one of them ... ripped off his face and he was Satan. Or, he was a demon, okay? Horrifying. Then I wake up."

Glenn went on to explain that, while the dream was so vivid and disturbing that he thought about it almost daily for well over a year, it was what happened next — during a discussion with a prominent religious leader — that really hinted his "dream" might actually have been a vision of the future and a warning.

"I will never forget it, and I will never dismiss it," Glenn said of what he learned. "I'm sharing it with you today because you must not dismiss what you're dealing with. We are not in a battle [of] politics ... our whole culture has become evil."

"You have to get to a point where you are going to choose a side. There will be no one left on the benches, and if you think you can sit it out you will end up on the wrong side. I urge you to know who you serve. This is a different time in human experience. This is not normal. None of this is normal," he warned.

'The Fedcoin is HERE': Glenn Beck reveals what the Fed was up to while YOU weren’t watching

While Americans were preparing for Thanksgiving last Wednesday afternoon, the Federal Reserve moved forward with its "Central Bank Digital Currency" program, and that wasn't the only controversial policy that was rolled out while you weren’t watching.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck reviewed the latest financial stories you may have missed over the holiday weekend, including how Biden's pause on student loan payments may be extended again and yet another sketchy Hunter Biden investment.

"You might have missed what happened Wednesday afternoon at the Fed," Glenn began. "They started their CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currency. Yes, the Fedcoin is here. Now they rolled it out on Wednesday — I mean, that was the only day they could do it, you know, because they've been denying that any of this stuff was happening. But they could only get it [launched] when no one was paying attention. So they rolled it out, and it's in its beta test now."

"By the way, India just rolled out its retail pilot program for digital rupees as well. But don't worry," he continued. "Maybe we should start having the conversation of, 'Gosh, this looks like the mark of the beast.' I mean, doesn't it? But surely it's not. Of course not. Not from the U.S. government. They never do anything underhanded or evil. Never."
