George Soros – “Black Wednesday has contributed to my personal fortune and therefore has increased my ability to do philanthropic work,” he said in 1992.
George Soros who is known as the “Man Who Broke the Bank of England” in 1992 through currency speculation. He is also the same George Soros who was convicted of insider trading in France. His conviction was upheld by the French Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights in 2011. Soros has said his history of efforts to de stabilize foreign governments has been “fun”.

5 days ago – To stave off high inflation and curtail the collapse of the rouble, the Central Bank of Russia (CBR) has hiked interest rates, slowing growth.
Black Wednesday,16 September 1992. The UK Conservative government was forced to withdraw the Pound from the European Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM) due to pressure by currency speculators — most notably George Soros, who made over US$1 billion from this speculation. In 1997 the UK Treasury estimated the cost of Black Wednesday at £3.4 billion.
Twenty years ago today, the pound was battered as currency speculators and recession prompted huge interest-rate increases in the hope that traders would be attracted to buy sterling.
While working as an adviser to Norman Lamont, pictured with Cameron, David Cameron presented the then Chancellor with a foot-long Havana cigar and a note reading: ‘Smoke this when all your troubles have gone’
They didn’t: the pound could not stay within the lower boundary of the carefully fixed European exchange-rate mechanism (ERM). Betting against sterling’s survival, George Soros made a name for himself by making more than $1bn out of the UK’s embarrassment. It was Black Wednesday.
Estimates have placed the cost to the taxpayer of that one day at as much as £27bn, though Treasury documents released in 2005 suggest it may only have been £3.3bn. That was the year that David Cameron became leader of the Conservatives, a good example of how some of the key figures involved that day didn’t suffer permanent damage to their careers.
Norman Lamont was the British Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1990 to 1993. He was raised to the peerage as Baron Lamont of Lerwick, of Lerwick in the Shetland Islands in 1998.
- Since 1996 Lamont has been Chairman of Le Cercle, a foreign policy Club founded by German Chancellor Adenauer after the War with members from over twenty-five countries. This group, which meets bi-annually in Washington DC, includes many senior intelligence experts and has a particular interest in the War against Terrorism.
His involvement with Le Cercle is covered in detail by The Institute for the Study of Globalisation and Covert Politics in a comprehensive study: “Le Cercle and the struggle for the European continent which it subtitles a “Private bridge between Vatican-Paneuropean and Anglo-American intelligence”. The study includes membership list back to its original foundation :
George Soros Speaks Before the United States State Department
Secretary of State John Kerry introduced billionaire George Soros, at a State Department forum held on Tuesday at the George C. Marshall Center, according to theWashington Free Beacon. The State Department stressed that this is “an in-house event for department employees only, not a public or press event”. Apparently the wisdom to be conveyed by Mr. Soros is only fit for the ears of federal bureaucrats who understand the nuances and “greater good” of currency manipulation.

Soros was behind the Ukrainian uprising
Billionaire financier George Soros was behind the Ukrainian uprising which cost dozens of lives and toppled elected President Viktor Yanukovych, Christian Voice has learned.
Soros helped finance the so-called ‘Arab Spring’, and as long as go as 2011, Russia Today ran a story about Soros wanting to ‘do a Libya’ on Ukraine. It said the concerns were ‘openly voiced by Yulia Timoshenko in 2008.’ (Yulia Timoshenko co-led the Orange Revolution and was the first female Prime Minister of Ukraine.)
Soros himself openly admits to founding something called the Renaissance Foundation in Ukraine in 1990 and applauds the uprising against the Ukrainian police.

That a Nobel Peace Prize winner would lead the charge to bring wrack and ruin to a nation like Russia is not as surprising as one would think. The USA has always been used as the primary policeman for the Anglo-American Axis (AAA), especially when military aggression is required to prevent any given nation from leaving the dollar-denominated reservation. Which is precisely why the Nobel Committee gave Barack Obama cover by fraudulently awarding him the ‘peace prize’. They knew he would be leading the USA & Company against the Russian boogeyman in the not-too-distant future. That future is 2014.
Prior to an outright military invasion the AAA has historically utilized their arsenal of economic assaults and financial attacks to soften up the enemy. The current regime of extra-legal US and European sanctions, no matter what form they have taken, are all designed to destroy the Russian economy. Whether it has been declared or not, the Western powers have commenced a full blown war against Russia.
What very few people realize is that Obama’s rise to the presidency ONLY occurred with his agreement to prosecute Russia whenever directed to do so. In fact much of his 2008 election campaign rhetoric concerning foreign policy was peppered with language that clearly reflected his loyalty to the Cold Warriors of yesteryear. How else does anyone think he could have accumulated a record-smashing $750 million in campaign contributions?
“In 21-plus months, Barack Obama raised roughly $750 million from donors, surpassing all of his White House opponents this year and also eclipsing the total amount of money raised by all of the presidential candidates combined in 2004.”
(2008 ABC News Report)
The two key figures behind the unrivaled campaign chests amassed by Obama prior to both of his presidential elections were George Soros and Zbigniew Brzezinski. Only by understanding the true forces behind these two characters will the current war against Russia be properly understood……
In the interest of completely subjugating Russia to the dictates of the Anglo-American Axis, these Russophobes have used the full force of the Trilateral Commission, a semi-secret stealth organization whose only purpose is complete world domination. Zbigniew Brzezinski was a founding member and primary organizer of the Trilateral Commission, along with David Rockefeller of Chase Manhattan, George Soros, and many other New World Order (NWO) profiteers.
Convicted Felon George Soros …
Russian Intelligence has fingered Soros for using cross-collateralized compounded Swedish and Danish foreign currency derivatives for the purpose of an attack on the Russian stock market. Soros’ use of these cross-collateralized compounded derivatives utilizing Luxembourg banks violates the terms of the Basil II European Union banking agreement.
