    Enough is Enough: European Governments Move Against Soros NGOs

    Despite the fact that a number of European governments have taken steps to thwart American NGOs ostensibly promoting ‘democracy and globalization’ while targeting countries for regime change, the US is unlikely to stop ‘exporting democracy’ around the world.

    A number of European countries, including Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic, have unleashed a barrage of criticism against US-backed non-government organizations (NGOs).

    Groups affiliated with the US billionaire George Soros have attracted the most ire, as prominent political figures like Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Czech President Milos Zeman have accused these groups of meddling in their nations’ internal matters.

    However, Anatoly Petrenko, a professor at the Social Management Academy, told Sputnik Radio that despite the European leaders’ reaction, the US is unlikely to give up on using NGOs to advance its agenda in foreign countries.

    "Let’s just say that it is a very convenient method of ‘exporting democracy’, so to speak. Perhaps some kind of transformation will take place and they will switch to more sophisticated methods. Maybe these organizations will revert to their original methods, when they were training and teaching other people instead of directly taking to the streets," Petrenko said.

    He also expressed skepticism about claims that these organizations are not affiliated with the US government.

    "Everything these organizations do, they do by spending certain amounts of money – money they receive from the budget. This is, after all, not some kind of sponsorship by Soros who earned himself some money and now spends it on democracy in the world," Petrenko explained.

    Earlier, US President Donald Trump declared that the US will no longer try and impose its political system upon other countries, and according to Petrenko, the European leaders regarded this statement as a kind of signal to them.

    "Apparently they regarded Trump’s statement about the US refraining from imposing its democracy upon others as a sort of signal that now they can quietly curb the activities of these organizations (US-backed NGOs) in their countries. However, it remains to be seen if they (European leaders) actually do something about it," he remarked.

      Soros is working on behalf of tel aviv and the diaspora. He has nothing to do with USA. That's just a cover.

      Representative democracy is not democracy. It's a joke. A lie spoon feed to the ignorant masses.
      Direct democracy is the ONLY true democracy.

      Mitach2002, no, the U.S.constitutional Republic is far better than any democracy. You need to study up on political systems and forms of government if you truly believe your own comment.

      Hermes, that is largely wishful thinking on your part! Soros is beholden to the NWO and not to any system of religion, government, nation or country. He thinks he is a god such is his megalomania.

      You and I will never agree on many things.
      How about you go find a dictionary and look up the word democracy and read carefully what it says.
      Democracy, true democracy is not representative democracy, it is direct democracy.
      Funny, only one country has direct democracy and since you don't know which one it is I'll give you a hint, it managed to stay out of both world wars.
      How can my electing a representative be democratic, do the officials you elect have your voice,do you agree with the bills they pass and actions they take, are those your values and ideals or do they dance to the tune of the masters who financed their political lives.
      How about you wake up sunshine.
      Next!

      terryjohnodgers,
      ...Among Soros's silent investors, these sources say, are the fugitive metals and oil trader Marc Rich, based in Zug, Switzerland; and Shaul Eisenberg, a decades-long member of Israeli Mossad intelligence, who functions as a major arms merchant throughout Asia and the Near East. Eisenberg was recently banned from doing business in Uzbekistan, where he had been accused by the government of massive fraud and corruption. A third Soros partner is Israel's "Dirty Rafi" Eytan, who served in London previously as Mossad liaison to British intelligence.....

      read he article and you know exactly where soros comes from and it shouldn't be a suprise either. Of course MSM and other israeli operated news sources don't talk about it.

      Mitach2002, that country you refer to is of course Switzerland. The Swiss have been involved in some very shady deals around the world over the centuries, especially when they were dealing with Nazi Germany - perhaps instead of shining a light for them you should be directing that light on all the shadows, such as the Bank of International Settlements?

      The American Republic and Constitution guarantee inalienable human rights under God Mitach - direct democracy guarantees nothing because there is no system of government that will not eventually turn tyrannical. Even the American Republic, the best form of government devised by Man, could not guarantee against that eventuality!

      Hermes, I have no argument with what you have put in your comment. But you tend to concentrate on the Jewish aspect rather than display the whole picture which includes all Western intelligence systems and governments.

      Mossad learned from British MI6 and the CIA and they have all been involved in turning the world into what they believe the world should be. Soros is the bagman for most of it through his NGOs that have been very successful in undermining governments worldwide.

      If you wish to find out the originating source for how this world now operates, especially the Western part of it, then you can look no further than the Roman Catholic Church and its political arm, the Vatican - but the evil that plays such a big part in our present world has a far longer history than even that Janus establishment.

      You're nearly there, keep going!

      This destructive megalomaniac, who said he sees himself as "a kind of god", should just croak already - but he won't. How is it that these decrepit one-worlder lizards are so long-lived? Rockefeller, Brzezinski and Kissinger are other examples.

      Matthew_21,
      What he say (about himself) is of no concern. The man can't distinguish between lies and truth. He never needed that. Soros is just a front man, a patsy, to explain the source of the money flooding to all these self-defense groups all over the world so the real source can be obscured. The real source of the money and the policies it aims to achieve is a man called shaul eisenberg operating on behalf of tel aviv.
      But you won't hear soros (or anyone else for that matter) say that. Eisenberg is identified in the book 'By way of deception' by Victor Ostrovsky as the source of the money that sustains a world-wide network of millionair -, and billionair mossad operators who usually are called oligarchs. They are obviously very active in Ukraine, and probably still in Georgia too and nothing is being done about them.

      terryjohnodgers, good argument against your own previous statement.
      When was the discussion on guarantees?
      I guarantee you'll die. That's it for guarantees.
      Next!

      Mitach2002, the only guarantees in life is what is given us by God. It is Man that has forsaken those guarantees because he took to no longer believing in God, and just like all forms of government 'invented' by Man, when governments forsake their original purpose because they believe they are better than their fellow man who gave them such positions, then those governments will always become tyrannical.

      'good argument against your own previous statement.' I have not argued against what I have written so please do not twist the exchange to suit your own point of view.

      terryjohnodgers, God? I am God. Take your religion and share it with others of weak will or weak mind. Let religion and its fear rule you.
      Government hasn't forsaken anyone. People get the government they deserve.
      Read your laws, they give you everything you ask for.
      Stupid Americans fear terrorists so they allow their government to shred the constitution and enact the un constitutional patriot act. People are ignorant sheep and they need daddy government. You fear God and you need religion, rather you fear hell.
      Don't preach to me, I'm no pumpkin who doesn't know exactly what's transpiring.

      Mitach2002, religion is a man made construct used to control the masses, I only mentioned God who belongs to no religion on this Earth. And ALL religions have co-opted God to suit their own purpose.

      So, you must be an evolutionist then? You do realize that evolution is still a theory that will never be proven and is for those who are foolish enough to accept that everything we behold is simply happenstance?

      In the affairs of Men, there will always be those who will take advantage of any system or situation that they can see a personal or ideological gain for them. Your own belief that direct democracy is the only form of government we should all adhere to fails to take that simple fact of human life into account.

      Even Churchill knew that democracy, and any form of it, was open to abuse and subsequently would lead us all into tyranny which is what has befallen us all in the West regardless of who it was we chose to vote for.

      Not everyone are ignorant sheep. There are more awake now to what is occurring than there was a decade ago and that number can only increase as time wears on.

      You need to control that temper of yours because a bad temperament will cause the owner irreparable personal damage.

      Shame to western "democracy & civilization" for having such a bad person as a front runner. He didn't come there alone but was in fact supported all along by those who shared his "values".
