Japan is staggering under
the apocalyptic forces of economic stagnation, chronic debt and nuclear
disaster, and now comes the Fourth Horseman of vampire capitalism. George
Soros and the Goldman Sachs group have arrived to pounce on what’s left
of a mortally wounded economy and to debase the yen.
When it comes to stone-cold avarice, no merchant of Venice comes close
to the blood-sucking thievery of Soros, who forced currency debasement
on the post-Soviet Russian ruble and later triggered the Asian financial
crisis with the fall of the Thai baht and Indonesian rupiah. In every
past instance, “shock therapy” proved to be utterly disastrous and certainly
no a remedy for a faltering economy.
The Hungarian financier never acts alone, of course, since he needs local
mafia, corrupt politicians, terrorists, phony NGOs and lunatic-fringe
“financial experts” to get away with the gang-rape of vulnerable economies.
The results of his hostile takeovers are all-too predictable: pensioners
losing their life savings, factory closures, nations deprived of their
resources, countries stripped of their sovereignty and, more cruelly,
tons of child-sex slaves and human organs for sale on the streets.
The Opening Shot
The attack on Japan’s economy began last summer when Soros and his erstwhile
employee, the Tokyo-based hedge fund manager Takeshi Fujimaki, raised
unfounded fears by predicting Japan would soon default on its huge public
debt. The financial markets did not give much credence to the doomsayers,
being wary of the Hungarian fraudster’s repeated attempts to crash the
Few fund managers, except a handful of his Wall Street co-conspirators,
realized that Soros had an ace up his sleeve by the name of Shinzo Abe.
In late autumn, the head of the Liberal Democrats while campaigning for
the premiership called for the Bank of Japan (BoJ) to print trainloads
of money to artificially create an annual 2-percent rate of inflation.
Since the central bank’s lending rate has hovered near zero, any further
cut in the prime rate means that the BoJ would bleed billions of dollars
in losses annually from the precipitous fall of the yen, rapidly depleting
the treasury and thereby prompting investors to sell off government bonds.
The Japanese government would then be forced to default, bankrupting millions
of pensioners and homeowners.
Who benefits? A bond collapse would break the banks, and so the only remaining
option is to put one’s money into hedge funds like the Soros Management
Fund. After the 2008 Lehman debacle and the subsequent Wall Street crisis,
retirees have been justifiably distrustful of unsecured derivatives hawked
by financial hucksters. The crash of the Japanese economy, in short, puts
a handgun to the head of every saver. Surrender your cash to Gyorgy Schwartz
or you’re finished. Soros is so dodgy that he doesn’t even go by his real
Next Global Meltdown
Sensing the imminent threat posed by Shinzo Abe’s irrational calls for
an ever-weaker yen, finance ministers of Germany and the Group of 20 economies
recently blasted Tokyo for launching a “currency war”, which could soon
force every central bank to debase its paper money, thereby bringing on
a global depression.
The LDP electoral victory, which powered Abe’s comeback, had the knock-on
effect of spurring foreign investors to sell off their yen holdings. Armed
with insider information from corrupt LDP politicans, Team Soros already
had a long lead in the yen-dumping race. Between November and January,
the Soros Management Fund gained a windfall $1.2 billion in profit by
shorting the yen.
In rationally regulated markets, the deliberate spread of false rumors
to manipulate trading is punishable by fines and imprisonment, but not
in Japan, at least not while Abe holds the reins. His grandfather Nobusuke
Kishi looted military-occupied Manchuria, where fascist militias routinely
chopped off civilians’ fingers to remove their golden rings, and Shinzo
follows in those boot steps by robbing his own countrymen in Japan.
The ongoing attack on the yen was planned well in advance since Soros
and Goldman Sachs earlier made the preparatory move of setting up a holding
company called Ishin Hotels, which purchases undervalued commercial property
in Tokyo. The vulture capital operation is organized as a real estate
investment trust. This sort of REIT promises private investors an easy
profit once the renovated and re-branded hotels are sold off to Arab or
Chinese tycoons, who might otherwise face insurmountable local opposition
in trying to acquire land in prime locations.
These sorts of proxy deals between “reputable” financials and shady tycoons
require licensing and tax benefits arranged by bribing Tokyo Metropolitan
Government officials and LDP politicians. Probes by the Tokyo Police,
the Finance Ministry or even investigative reporting by the Nihon Kezai
financial newspaper are all unlikely to ever happen.
These insider property transfers are sealed at expensive Japanese restaurants
in the Akasaka district. Deep inside a ryotei, the president of a real
estate company welcomes a key politician to sit down on the tatami floor.
A corporate vice president then silently slides a suitcase under the low
table and bows deeply, touching his forehead to the straw mat in gratitude.
The politician grunts, polishes off his cup of sake and then leaves for
the next payoff appointment. That’s exactly how the Soros fund, Goldman
Sachs and Stanley Morgan do the dirty deed in Tokyo. And that’s how Shinzo
Abe amassed the money to buy the parliament.
The Gang of Four
Fulfilling his backdoor deal with Soros and the other Wall Street crooks,
Abe is appointing supporters of lax monetary policy to head the Bank of
Japan: Haruhiko Kuroda, former chief of the Asian Development Bank, and
as deputy director Kikuo Iwata, a Hitotsubashi economics professor who
advocates drastic expansion of the money supply.
The proponents of fast money have yet to explain in any detail exactly
how bankrupting the BoJ is supposed to restore the bubble economy. No
matter how cheap it is to borrow, manufacturers will continue to move
their factories overseas closer to foreign markets, streamline their office
staff and push employees into early retirement. The cost of borrowing
has no major influence on corporate restructuring in an aging society.
Worsening matters, consumers faced with higher prices for imported food
and fuel, will purchase even less than before, further curbing domestic
While a cheaper yen supposedly make manufactured goods more competitive
in overseas markets, the fatal flaw in Abe’s economic reflation strategy
is capital flight because banks, financial institutions, corporations
and individual savers will steadily see their wealth shrink by holding
onto or borrowing yen. The inevitable result will be full-blown depression,
a contagion that will spread to American energy and food corporations.
The former Soros fund employee Fujimaki recently earned notoriety for
saying: “There’s no way out of Japan’s crisis. The only option left for
Japan is to either default or print money (to spur) hyper-inflation.”
Anyone familiar with economic history realizes that hyperinflation under
the Weimar Republic is what enabled Adolf Hitler to become the Chancellor
Another advocate of yen debasement is Fujimaki’s business partner Yo Nakamura
who runs Masstune, Japan’s largest online investment fund. His name on
the roster of financial saboteurs completes the Gang of Four run by Soros
and Goldman Sachs.
A Jew for Fascism
During the Asian financial crisis of 1998, investors fled Thailand after
sustaining huge losses on their baht-denominated holdings in a Soros-rigged
panic. The Hungarian tycoon made his windfall profit by impoverishing
Thais, so when he tried to fly to Bangkok to deliver a speech at the Oriental
Hotel, Soros was told in no uncertain terms that he would be shot on arrival
by military snipers. The coward was a no show.
If anyone deserves exit by euthanasia, it is Gyorgy Schwartz and the honor
of assisting by all rights should go to a fellow Jew.
In response to media exposes of his youthful Nazi associations, Soros
admitted in his autobiography to having worked during his teenage years
for his father, who served as an accountant for the German forces. Since
he did not mention any details, perhaps a quick summary of the historical
record can refresh his lost memory banks.
During World War II, Hungary was one of the Axis allies under the conservative
nationalist regime of Miklos Horthy. The Hungarian government did not
support the Nazi Party’s anti-Semitism but shared the same revisionist
fascist ideology as militarist Japan, which enlisted Jews to fight against
the Anglo-American-Soviet alliance.
While Jewish refugees from Slavic countries were deported to appease the
Nazis, Horthy protected Jewish supporters of fascism, including Manfred
Weiss, the head of the nation’s armaments industry. Thousands of Jews
volunteered for military service to combat the Soviet forces on the Eastern
Front. Most of them never made it back to Budapest.
To protect their government contracts or to keep their customers, many
Hungarian Jews joined the Arrow Cross Party, which sponsored a fervent
fascist and xenophobic paramilitary force. During the German Army retreat
from Stalingrad. SS field commanders in Budapest encouraged the far-right
Arrow Cross Party to depose Horthy. The extremist regime then ordered
the confiscation of Jewish properties for removal to Germany.
It was at this precise moment in late1944 that fascist Jews with the Arrow
Cross Party, who understood Yiddish, began to collect and tally the valuables
of the Jewish elite. On the train to Germany, the wealth of the Jews filled
19 boxcars while the possessions of all Hungarian government officials
were loaded onto merely 16 cars. Gyorgy Schwartz and his father were among
those Jews who robbed their fellows on behalf of the Nazis, and that’s
how George Soros got his career start as a professional thief. His resume
makes Bernie Madoff look like a Cub Scout.
Meanwhile, other ardent fascist Jews in the Arrow Cross militia were busy
organizing mass executions of non-political Hungarian Jews who were
deemed lacking in patriotic fervor and therefore defeatist. Before long
the Red Army tanks rolled into Budapest, and the fascist Jews either died
in street battles or switched sides. It’s not a story told by Leon Uris.
At the Brink of Destruction
Zionism, of course, has placed an extra-large fig leaf over the truth
of Jewish culpability in the carnage. To be fair, every social group and
each nation was divided by the war issue, including Germans and Japanese,
but it remains only the Jews who refuse to acknowledge their own role
as the sometimes perpetrator. World War II was many local wars within
a global war, and the lines and motives were often blurred in the fog.
No side, no individual comes away entirely clean after such a bloodletting.
Aboard the Death Star
Some people learn from their mistakes, others don’t. The criminality of
the Soros-Abe plot against the Japanese economy is not simply about profiting
from others’ losses or taking advantage of a radiation-damaged nation.
Their attempt to spark a global depression is the prelude to a bigger
objective, which is to smash the postwar international order and subjugate
humanity under a neo-fascist regime.
George Soros as world emperor and Shinzo Abe as his Darth Vader? Soros
said of own youth: “I fancied myself as some sort of god.” Although it
may all sound like a zany parody from Gene Wilder, this insane megalomaniac
is capable of causing irreparable damage.
At this point, with his drooling fangs about to strike at the jugular
of Fukushima victims, there are only two solutions: a wooden stake or
Abe Lincoln’s silver axe. That’s Honest Abe not Shinzo Abe, the Soros
Yoichi Shimatsu, former editor of The Japan Times Weekly, is a science
writer based in Hong Kong.
