Soros's Role in Kenya Chaos ^ | November 11, 2010 | Richard Poe

Posted on 11/11/2010 3:54:20 PM PST by Alexander Nevsky

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. 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. 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.

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.” 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. As it happened, Nairobi slums, including Korogocho, became epicenters of post-election violence in December 2007, as protesters battled riot police in the streets.

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. 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:

“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.”
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.

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.

Soros was involved, was he?

I suppose it figures. Obama was deeply involved, and that has been known since before he was elected.

Can anyone find the YouTube video on Obama and Railla Odinga? It seems to have disappeared AGAIN. Seems to me it was there last month, although it keeps moving around.

Our 2012 elections are going to be interesting. The Obama crowd has no interest in going quietly into the night. They will have to be pried out of the White House with bulldozers and jackhammers.

From The Obama Nation by Jerome Corsi (pages 114-115):

"In November 2007, during the election campaign between Raila Odinga and Mwai Kibaki, well-known American political consultant and analyst Dick Morris showed up in Kenya, announcing he was going to work pro bono as an Odinga presidential campaign strategist. NTV broadcast a press conference where Raila Odinga and Dick Morris appeared together to make the announcement. ...

"The NTV television news report introduced Morris to Kenya as the 'principal architect' of Bill Clinton's reelection in 1996. NTV also noted that Morris worked with the little-known United Kingdom Independence Party in the 2004 elections, helping them win twelve of England's seventy-eight seats in the European Parliament, and was a consultant to Viktor Yushchenko's presidential campaign in the Ukraine during the so-called Orange Revolution of 2004. ...

"Morris's showing up in Kenya makes no sense outside of the Obama-Odinga connection. Odinga critics speculated that Morris had been recommended by Clinton associates working for Obama. The argument was that Obama decided to help Odinga when polls showed Odinga likely to lose the vote count against Kibaki in the December 2007 election. In the United States, Morris had been openly critical of Hillary Clinton's campaign against Obama. Maybe Morris could help Odinga win, just as he had helped Yushchenko win. ..."

Yes, they were. As a matter of fact in 2006, Senator Barack Obama’s first trip out of the country was to Kenya on a ‘fact finding’ trip in which he traveled around with Odinga’s campaign and went on the stump for him.

It’s a real comfort to know that he his actions in helping Odinga get power, resulted in a couple of thousand or so Kikuyu being lynched, rounded up in churches, set on fire, and got their heads split open with a machete if they ran out plus 350,000 of them displaced and their lands stolen.

Not to mention that the Kikuyu were Christians, and a majority of the Luo (shades of Obama, Sr.) were Muslims and Odinga had promised them Shari’a law would be applicable in Kenya if he won. Comforting that Obama sent $millions taxpayer dollars to Kenya to help him implement Shari’a into their Constitution, isn’t it?

And of course he’s Soros’ tool. And notice that in every country Soros has pulled this krap the uprising has come through stimulating the Muslims into jihad.

“Schwartz also changed the family name from Schwartz to Soros. In Hungarian “soros” means “next in line, or designated successor”, while in Esperanto it means “will soar.” Soros was with his father in 1947 at an Esperanto conference in Switzerland.”

I’m wondering if Beck knew that Soros put up a roadblock from going straight to this subject so Beck is coming around from the back side. Why does everything associated with Obama eventually come back to Kenya?

Did you know that Brian Schatz, the guy who signed the Hawaii Democratic Party’s certification of nomination for Obama (minus either the statement of eligibility of the express statement that Obama is the candidate of the HDP as required by law), was doing a year of study/internship in Kenya the year that Obama and Michelle were there right before they got married?

Somehow everything about Obama eventually comes back to Kenya...

Does the new Kenyan constitution have sharia in it?

That was one of the things Odinga used to get the Muslims to support him - a promise that he would help them get sharia instituted, according to the Christian churches. Somebody posted a document that had the signatures of the Muslim leaders. Then the Muslim leaders came up with a different document they said they signed.

If their constitution has sharia in it now that’s a huge red flag.

Another thing that was in the agreement that the Christian leaders said Odinga made was that he would reverse Kenya’s cooperation with America’s anti-terrorism measures. After that bombing in Kenya we did a lot with Kenya because it’s such a central point in the terrorism hub there. The Muslims never liked that and Odinga promised to accommodate the Muslims on that.

Again - it’s that Soros-communist-Islamist-Obama connection. We see that all over the place. Wonder why that is...

I have the video saved somewhere, but this will have to do for now. (I've posted this several times in the past two years but not many seem to understand its implications.)
