from The Daily Bell:
Italy’s Matteo Renzi buffeted on all fronts … Matteo Renzi is facing months of domestic challenges, including a referendum that could bring him down Matteo Renzi’s nickname is Il Rottamatore – the Demolition Man. Italy’s prime minister wears the name proudly, advertising his desire to tear through the mouldering institutions of the Italian state. But this year, his main target for demolition may, by accident, be himself. -BBC
The BBC is portraying Matteo Renzi as being “buffeted” but it is George Soros who is doing a lot of the buffeting.
Behind the scenes he is affiliated with the “Five Star Movement” that is now Italy’s most popular party, according to opinion polls.
The movement, founded in 2009 by comedian Beppe Grillo, has won support for its anti-establishment, populist views. Its critics accuse it of being an ad hoc protest movement which has yet to present a coherent plan for government.
However, it has caught a degree of referendum fever and has called for a vote on leaving the eurozone.
We wrote about Soros’s apparent affiliations with the Five Star Movement HERE. Soros is good friends with Joseph Stiglitz who has advised Grillo on economic matters.
… [Soros’] Open Society seems quite supportive of Grillo despite his political opposition to the kind of globalism that Soros espouses. Stiglitz and Soros are reportedly longtime friends that share a fascination with turning IMF SDRs into a full-scale global currency.
Soros is not just affiliated with Italy’s most popular – and most disruptive – political party. He has also played a major role in Europe’s refugee crisis. Here from a recently published post at The Passing Parade: How George Soros Singlehandedly Created the European Refugee Crisis:
Soros’s agenda is fundamentally about the destruction of national borders. This has recently been shown very clearly with his funding of the European refugee crisis.
The refugee crisis has been blamed on the civil war currently raging in Syria. But did you ever wonder how all these people suddenly knew Europe would open its gates and let them in?
The refugee crisis is not a naturally occurring phenomenon. It coincided with OSF donating money to the US-based Migration Policy Institute and the Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants, both Soros-sponsored organizations.
Both groups advocate the resettlement of third-world Muslims into Europe. In 2015, a Sky News reporter found “Migrant Handbooks” on the Greek island of Lesbos. It was later revealed that the handbooks, which are written in Arabic, had been given to refugees before crossing the Mediterranean by a group called “Welcome to the EU.”
Is Soros behind Brexit too? He made financial bets that seem to indicate he believed Brexit would win.
Of course, he’s also tried to confuse the issue by making public statements that Brexit was responsible for a financial-market crisis.
But he shorted trouble Deutsche Bank and bet against the S&P via a 2.1-million-share put option on the SPDR S&P 500 ETF.
As we’ve reported, he also took out a $264 million position in Barrick Gold, whose share price has jumped over 14% since Brexit.
And he sold various stock positions.
What is to make of all this? Soros is obviously a key, elite globalist resource. He started on this path after Queen Elizabeth demanded a meeting with him. She was angry over his actions in 1992 when he shorted the pound (making billions).
Not long afterwards, he aggressively embarked on his Open Society ventures that have continued to this day. His views are certainly aligned with the City.
True, the City made anti-Brexit noises along with Soros. But this may have been to confuse the issue.
Recall, David Cameron was oddly mentioned in the controlled leak of the Panama Papers. A leak likely sponsored by Western intel.
Cameron received a lot of pushback as a result of his offshore money manipulations. It damaged him as a credible anti-Brexit proponent.
It is certainly possible to see this as a designed leak. Why? Well … out of chaos, order.
