in order to find out how Soros is laundering money
to fund wikileaks, let's show his strategy.


The Five Steps of Collapse

Soros is known as the man who broke the Bank of England. The prime minister of Malaysia called Soros an "unscrupulous profiteer." In Thailand, he was branded an "economic war criminal." They also said that he sucks the blood from people.

In 1994, George Soros stated: "Just right that the former Soviet Empire is now called the Soros Empire."

The following are George Soros' five steps to bringing down a regime and causing a currency collapse:

* Step One: Form a shadow government using humanitarian aid as cover.
* Step Two: Control the airwaves. Fund existing radio and TV outlets and take control over them or start your own outlets.
* Step Three: Destabilize the state, weaken the government and build an anti-government kind of feeling in the country. You exploit an economic crisis or take advantage of an existing crisis — pressure from the top and the bottom. This will allow you to weaken the government and build anti-government public sentiment.
* Step Four: Provoke an election crisis. You wait for an election and during the election, you cry voter fraud.
* Step Five: Take power. You stage massive demonstrations, civil disobedience, sit-ins, general strikes and you encourage activism. You promote voter fraud and tell followers what to do through your radio and television stations. Incitement and violence are conducted at this stage.


keywiki.org...

step one - form a shadow government - CHECK, he's done that in the US with DEMs
step two - control the airwaves - CHECK, he's doing that with wikileaks and his funds to news outlets.
step three - destabilize the state - CHECK, the effects of wikileaks releases are doing that
step four - provoke an election crisis - CHECK, he did this with Bush and later the birther movement.
step five - Take power - he's still working on this part. a revolt by the people play into his hand.

take notice of his step one, using humanitarian aid as a cover for ops.

Soros Open Society Inst. funded $39Million to
Soros Humanitarian Foundation in 2006 per it's tax return.

Soros Open Society Inst. also funded $39Million AGAIN to
Soros Humanitarian Foundation on it's 2007 tax return

and then again in 2008, the same Humanitarian Foundation
got $26Million.

The purpose for these funds were listed on the tax return as

"charitable purposes for promoting open societies"

ummmm, wait a minute. Isn't that the function of
Open Society itself? Remember, Soros 5-step
process of using humanitarian aid as a cover.
Laundering the funds off through the Soros Humanitarian
Foundation is a way to throw off the blood hounds
and keep OSI out in the open and from under
scrutiny.

So basically from 2006-2008 when wikileaks was getting
started, Soros laundered off a whopping $104 Million in
humanitarian aid.

This is how you can afford a nuclear bomb hardened bunker
in the side of a mountain.

well it would appear that wikileaks funding
sources are drying up or either they do not want
to be implicated should their identities
get leaked.


Assange also said WikiLeaks did not have enough money to pay its legal bills, even though "a lot of generous lawyers have donated their time to us". He said legal costs for WikiLeaks and his own defence were approaching £500,000. The decisions by Visa, MasterCard and PayPal to stop processing donations to WikiLeaks – apparently following US pressure – had robbed the website of a "war chest" of around €500,000, he complained. This would have been enough to fund WikiLeaks' publishing operations for six months. At its peak the organisation was receiving €100,000 a day, he said.


www.guardian.co.uk...

but Assange is not out yet, it appears we will
be hearing more about Julian in an upcoming
book deal about his life.


According to publishing sources, however, Assange can take cheer from the fact that he has secured a seven-figure advance for a book about WikiLeaks and his life story. The sources suggest he is likely to receive £250,000 himself, allowing him to pay off some of his debts and to settle his personal defence fund, currently "paralysed". The book is to be published in the spring by Knopf in the US and Canongate in the UK, the sources suggest.

Lets have a look at the most recent email communication John Young had with Soros Foundation shall we.

Submitted 9 August 2010

Does the Open Society Institute or other initiatives financed by Mr. George Soros support Wikileaks.org, its staff, supporters or its affiliates, either directly or indirectly though other parties.

If financial or other support is provided could you describe it: extent, time frame, terms and conditions?

Your response will be published on the public education website Cryptome.org of which I am the administrator.

Thank you very much.

Sincerely,
John Young

Why was freedom house founded?
www.freedomhouse.org...

Freedom House was created in 1941 by prominent Americans concerned about the U.S. policy of isolationism as Nazism threatened to engulf Europe. The organization's name was intended to counter the Brown House, the Nazi party headquarters in Germany where Adolf Hitler maintained an office. After World War II, Freedom House turned its focus to the struggle against Communism and other threats to freedom irrespective of ideology and embraced the organization's mission to expand freedom worldwide and strengthen human rights and civil liberties in the United States.


How is Freedom House funded?
www.freedomhouse.org...

Freedom House receives funding from a mix of private foundations and individuals, as well as from democratic governments.

In regards to U.S. government funding, Freedom House has received grants from the U.S. Agency for International Development and the State Department for specific projects and publications, usually as a result of public competition.

Freedom House has also received grants from other governments and international bodies, including Australia, Ireland, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Norway, the European Union, and the United Nations Democracy Fund.

Freedom House never accepts funds in the form of contracts from government institutions, including the U.S., and never functions as an extension of any government.

Freedom House does not accept funds for its research and analysis from any governments of countries evaluated in that research. For this reason, its global surveys, Freedom in the World and Freedom of the Press, are entirely privately funded. For a full list of current funders, read Freedom House’s annual report

Freedom House

Freedom House is an independent watchdog organization that supports the expansion of freedom around the world. Freedom House supports democratic change, monitors freedom, and advocates for democracy and human rights.

Since its founding in 1941 by prominent Americans concerned with the mounting threats to peace and democracy, Freedom House has been a vigorous proponent of democratic values and a steadfast opponent of dictatorships of the far left and the far right. Eleanor Roosevelt and Wendell Willkie served as Freedom House’s first honorary co-chairpersons.

Throughout its history, Freedom House has opposed tyranny around the world, including dictatorships in Latin America, apartheid in South Africa, Soviet domination of Central and Eastern Europe, and religiously-based totalitarian regimes such as those governing Sudan, Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Freedom House has promoted the growth of freedom by encouraging U.S. policymakers, international institutions, and the governments of established democracies to adopt policies that advance human rights and democracy around the world. At the same time, Freedom House provides support to individuals working in the world's young democracies to overcome debilitating legacies of tyranny, dictatorship and political repression; as well as to activists working in repressive societies to bring about greater freedom and openness.

Sunlight Foundation

The Sunlight Foundation uses cutting-edge technology and ideas to make government transparent and accountable.

The Sunlight Foundation is a non-profit, nonpartisan organization that uses the power of the Internet to catalyze greater government openness and transparency, and provides new tools and resources for media and citizens, alike.

We are committed to improving access to government information by making it available online, indeed redefining “public” information as meaning “online,” and by creating new tools and websites to enable individuals and communities to better access that information and put it to use.

We want to catalyze greater government transparency by engaging individual citizens and communities -- technologists, policy wonks, open government advocates and ordinary citizens –- demanding policies that will enable all of us to hold government accountable.

Sunlight develops and encourages new government policies to make it more open and transparent, facilitates searchable, sortable and machine readable databases, builds tools and websites to enable easy access to information, fosters distributed research projects as an community building tool, engages in advocacy for 21st century laws to require that government make data available in real time and trains thousands of journalists and citizens in using data and the web to watchdog Washington

SNIPPET: Brief History of the Sunlight Foundation

.... Multiple corruption scandals engulfed Washington. Super-lobbyist Jack Abramoff was pursued for putting top congressional leaders in his pocket and fleecing Indian tribes. Congressman Duke Cunningham was found accepting outlandish bribes in exchange for earmarks. One of the most ethically-challenged, and powerful members of Congress -- then Majority Leader Tom DeLay -- chose to leave office while facing rising legal problems.

Amid the growing dissatisfaction with government and mindful of the changes underway in the information economy, longtime Washingtonians Michael Klein and Ellen Miller met to discuss ways to push for a more open and accountable government. Their vision: To fundamentally expand public access to vital government information for journalists and citizens alike, and to empower them with the tools to engage in online collaboration and dialog with their public officials....

.... Sunlight's main policy priority is to establish within government an a priori assumption that all public information should be made available online, in as close to real-time as possible ....

.... The 2007 Honest Leadership and Open Government Act (HLOGA) contained recommendations by Sunlight that included the online posting of paid private travel disclosures and personal financial disclosures as well as the requirement that committee meetings be made available online in video, audio or written format.

Soon after the passage of HLOGA, Sunlight announced the launch of the Open House Project, a collaborative cross-partisan effort (that had the public blessing of both House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Minority Leader John Boehner) to identify concrete reforms the House of Representatives could make in its use of information and the Internet...

.... Through the work of this Sunlight Labs team, terabytes of data have been digitized, and major new databases and tools have been created to share vital political information with the public.

The Web sites CapitolWords.org, LOUISdb.org, EarmarkWatch.org, PoliticalPartyTime.org, Congrelate.org and PublicMarkup.org are all exemplary examples of open, accessible political information tools created and supported by Sunlight.

Sunlight has also funded the creation and maintenance of various Web tools and projects that create transparency and encourage citizen engagement.

In this category, its flagship project is OpenCongress.org, a user-friendly hub for comprehensive information about bills, members and votes created in partnership with the Participatory Politics Foundation ....

.... Sunlight's funding has also helped MAPLight.org, which shows relationships between money and votes, focus on Congress; enabled OMB Watch to create FedSpending.org, the country's first searchable database of all government grants and contracts.

We also enabled the Center for Responsive Politics and the National Institute for Money in State Politics to place their vast data sets containing tens of millions of records covering decades of campaign activity at the federal and state level into our "Data Commons" project at TransparencyData.com and InfluenceExplorer.com ....

Who We Fund

[Snippet:

The Sunlight Foundation offers “transparency grants” for organizations that are using the Web to further our mission of making government information more accessible to the American people.

Q & A with the Wau Holland Foundation about Wikileaks' funding.

* Four permanent Wikileaks employees get a salary based on the size of the Greenpeace-remuneration.

* The foundation has contributed nothing to Assange's bail or legal defense.

* Since October 2009 more than €900,000 has been amassed, of which more than €370,000 has been disbursed.

* In January or February they plan to publish a complete financial audit of Wikileaks donations.

Wikileaks donations still flowing, but not to Assange legal fund
Published: 23 Dec

Have moves by PayPal and major credit cards choked off Wikileaks' donations? Not according to the chairman of a German foundation that channels donations to the whistleblower website.

The Wau Holland Foundation, a group associated with the hacker group the Computer Chaos Club, remains one of the main conduits for Wikileaks donations.

Chairman Winfried Motzkus explains that donations are still flowing, though they are not being used for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange's personal legal battle against allegations of sexual assault in Sweden.

What does Julian Assange live on these days?

Now, as one of the four permanent Wikileaks employees, he gets a salary. That is based on the size of the Greenpeace-remuneration for people in executive roles, so for example a campaigner.

(The remuneration for campaigners at environmental organisations such as Greenpeace ranges from about €3,800 to more than €5,000 per month, according to news agency DPA.)

There are rumours about luxury flights and expensive hotels for Assange.

For us, such bills haven’t turned up. Only completely normal flights have been billed here, mostly even without accommodation costs, because people are put up privately.

Has the foundation contributed to the bail and taken on legal costs (for Assange?)

No. That is primarily not an issue for Wikileaks but rather, at least theoretically, his private matter. That has nothing to do with the foundation.

We won’t accept any bills that have anything to do with this legal process. The process may be related to Wikileaks. But we can’t simply redirect donations that are earmarked for a specific purpose.

Are the donations still flowing?

Direct bank transfers for Wikileaks are still coming to us. We were only affected by the Paypal ban. Payments via Mastercard and Visa were not made through our foundation.

Donations from foreign countries are perhaps somewhat more difficult because of that, and have become somewhat more expensive. But they’re continuing.

How much has been donated to Wikileaks by now?

More donations always roll in when Wikileaks is heavily covered in the media. Now perhaps it’s a little less again. Since October 2009 more than €900,000 has been amassed, of which more than €370,000 has been disbursed.

In January or February we plan to publish a complete financial audit of Wikileaks donations.

Is the foundation overloaded by the Wikileaks campaigns?

At first we were completely overrun. It is our biggest project by far. We are employed and all work on a voluntary basis for the foundation. We are also spread out geographically. So it isn’t a simple matter.

Ofcourse Wau Holland Foundation is not the only one collecting funds on behalf of Wikileaks Organisation, that goes without saying .... any one who has been following Wikileaks recently, even months or years is quite aware of where and how to send funds


It seems Boondock and Co appear either ignorant or 'nobly untruthful' or too lazy to find out who the others are or if they do know decided not to disclosed that information here .... and/or... appear to be ignorant or 'nobly untruthful' or too lazy to email them and make the revelant enquiries


Finers Stephens Innocent LLP
Julian Assange's Lawyers in the UK

Julian Assange Defence Fund
The Fund has been established to receive donations to be used for the defence of Julian Assange.

[ Interested individuals can click the website for more detail and account information if they wish to donate to Assange's defence fund ]

Boondock and Co could contact the firm via the website and make enquiries (just like John Young did with George Soros - Open Society Institute) either by email or by phoning the number listed on their website


Skulagötu 19, 101 Reykjavik, Iceland Landsbanki Islands is the location of a Bank supporters can send funds to Wikileaks and their Publishing Company in Iceland [google - account details etc can be found]

Boondock and Co could contact this bank and make enquiries (just like John Young did with George Soros - Open Society Institute) either by email or by phoning the number listed on their website Contact details or here the company which processes funds


I suppose Boondock and Co could also contact individual Piracy (political) Parties in Europe and/or Computer Chaos Club in Germany for more information

do you folks really know WHO works for wikileaks?
I found an article from Reason magazine which
had the title

"Assange's Extremist Employees -
Why is WikiLeaks employing a well-known Holocaust denier and his disgraced son?".

It was very enlightening.

ouch !!!
did I touch a sore spot on Sunlight ??? lol

U can post web links all day of who
Sunlight funds. But til we get to see
tax returns from 2006-2009 on Sunlight
ur doing nothing but pi$$ing in the wind.
As a web site can SAY 1 thing but print
something entirely different on a tax return.

oh and btw, since Sunlight has a non-profit status,
why do they have a .com web address.
Usually .coms are for profit entities.
Or am I missing something ???

And I do not intend to e-mail anybody
for info as that would give out my real
identity wouldn't it?

no thanks, I'd rather be known just as
boon from ATS

well since Sunlight has been brought forth
into the foray, let's see what the folks from
Sunlight have to say about wikileaks.


If crimes have been committed in connection with the WikiLeaks experience, let the government make that case in court and let due process follow its course. But in the meantime, calls by some government leaders for the persecution of Julian Assange, or the extreme calls for his assassination, the intimidation of private internet service providers; the extra-legal freezing of WikiLeaks assets; and the blocking of the display of WikiLeaks-related information on government computers--even at the hallowed Library of Congress, where you can read all manner of subversive books--are affronts to an open society, a perversion of Internet activity, and a dagger aimed at the heart of the modern transparency movement.

The current reaction to WikiLeaks in the United States has exposed the vulnerability of any online publisher here to government pressure. This chilling effect on our democracy must be opposed


www.huffingtonpost.com...

well I would agree with the majority of that quote
up to the point where getting all this transparency
causes the system to fall and a NWO takes it's place.
That's where I have to draw a line. And all you have
to do is look at the original funding sources (where it
all originates from) to see these folks being used
for a covert agenda. They think their funding sources
are all playing on the same side. The bad news is,
they are not.

Thanks Boon


And no, I didn't skype BinB, the black hand herself contacted me and said, and I quote:




"No slacking of with Boondock just because it's christmas, you know it all falls if he wins this discussion. BTW Thanks for the hand knitted mittens you got me for christmas skurk, they match the scarf I got from Soros.

signed:

THE BLACK HAND".


So you can see why I love working for the NWO, they are so cozy. This year I got a coffee mug from them that says: NWO - Nice World Order

BackInBlack:

If you want to be paid overtime you have to sign document /B in triplicate and send them for Soros, but don't have high hopes, you know he's short on cash these days.

(Good to see you haven't lost your sense of humour Boon, cheers)
