In many ways, Soros' operation is strikingly similar to the FBI's former Counter-Intelligence Program, also known as COINTELPRO.
There is also ample evidence that Soros' program is linked to Israeli intelligence operations in the United States and that some presidential campaigns in 2008 were infiltrated by the joint operation, including those of Democratic candidate and former Senator Mike Gravel and Republican candidate Ron Paul.
Soro' operations, according to our sources, involve his Open Society Institute, as well as Soros Fund Management LLC, in which his son, Jonathan Soros, plays a leading role.
For Soros, his political operations in America are much the same as they are in places like Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, Romania, and other countries: divide, confuse the political sides, and conquer.
The modus operandi is that Soros operatives either help establish "progressive" organizations or join them after they are established with a new infusion of a modest to substantial funding.
The agenda of the organization is then altered to make it look either like a far-out "conspiracy" association or the infiltrators of the organization create internecine battles between factions or tamp down its fervor.
In some cases, the organizations ultimately cease to exist or are combined with other Soros-controlled or influenced organizations.
In the case of alternative journalism operations, Soros' operatives launch attacks, some of them highly personal, against bona fide independent journalists and question their sources and investigations.
WMR has been a primary target for such operations, according to sources familiar with Soros' tactics.
Soros' agents of disinformation and influence have moved in to "manage" the stories about jailed Alabama Democratic Governor Don Siegelman, the 2004 vote fraud in Ohio, the Turkish and Israeli intelligence penetration of the highest echelons of the U.S. government, the presence of Israeli spies among the accused 9/11 hijackers in the months prior to the terrorist attacks in 2001, and Russian-Israeli "Kosher Nostra" criminal activity from London to Kyiv and New York to Moscow.
Overall, Soros' operations are primarily focused on controlling the left through the use of censors and online gatekeepers in the media operations he funds.
Recipients of Soros' money are found running web sites, some of them well known; hosting TV and radio programs; and writing regularly for major periodicals.
Soros has ingratiated himself to many on the Left, but that was his goal. However, there are a number of progressives who are wise to Soros' operations and will continue to expose them regardless of how many more billions he amasses from shorting stocks, speculating on national currencies, and destroying jobs.
With the palindrome SOROS -- if you replace the "S's" with $ -- as in $oro$, you will be left with 'oro,' the Italian and Spanish word for 'gold.'
It sums up Mr. Soros nicely, if that is his real name, and not "Goldfinger."
