Eyeing issues on 1MDB Malaysia episode 5

The Third Force

In 1969, world renowned billionaire George Soros founded the Double Eagle Fund, a limited partnership of high risk takers who were known to hedge their positions with ridiculously priced futures contracts. If that seems a mouthful to you, then look at it this way – Soros started a partnership wherein which he convinced traders to purchase stock he didn’t already own at a later date through pricing agreements that didn’t make sense. He was able to do that as he had a ‘track record’ for being able to predict futures prices accurately.

But the remarkable accuracy with which Soros priced the futures contracts wasn’t by virtue of foresight. He simply had friends high up in media who would trigger panic selling at the right moment by rolling out gloomy market forecasts that weren’t reflective of circumstances. With these manoeuvres, Red Eagle quickly went on to establish benchmarks in the hedge fund industry, some of which have remained unparalleled to this day.

Soros-Mahathir

The company was owned by Arnhold & S. Bleichroeder, a New York based investment bank the billionaire magnate was then the vice-chairman of. Soros took the fund off with USD4 million worth of investor capital, 250, 000 of which reportedly belonged to him. In an attempt to escape federal regulations, he was sure to set the company up as an offshore entity on the island of Cura&ccedil in the Netherlands Antilles. He made absolutely sure none of its directors were American nationals.

The modus operandi became a signature attribute in many of his subsequent ventures. For instance, in 1970, when he set up the Soros Management Fund (which later came to be known as the Soros Fund), he literally filled every position in the company with well accredited investors who were anything but Americans. Today, the fund has on its board a highly influential group of Swiss and Italian financiers who are in one way or the other linked to the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers.

And we’re talking some highly notorious and cryptic financial predators here – figures representing Swiss banking entities that are littered with a history of assisting terrorists and syndicated criminals launder proceeds from the sale of drugs. Back in the 70’s, these entities possessed records to show that the Rothschilds were in fact the single largest group of investors with the fund in terms of investment worth.

Available literature on Soros or the Rothschilds will not tell you any of this, nor does it reveal the kind of people who secretly run Quantum, a pool of hedge fund operators Soros founded together with his assistant, Jim Rogers, in 1973. All it says is that the billionaire magnate advices the group through the Soros Fund, which in turn, functions as the principal investment manager for the group and some of its attendant concerns. But all of that is on paper.

The truth is, not only does Soros ‘own’ each company parked under the group through trust instruments, he engages in extremely convoluted cross-holding schemes spanning continents, making it virtually impossible to trace the ownership of any one company involved with his funds. It is for this reason, among others, that no one has been able to detect that the ‘real guys’ helping him run Quantum from behind the satin-laced curtains of deceit are the very same people running the Soros Fund and currently, companies linked to the Open Societies Foundation (OSF).

The Soros Empire

Unbeknown to many, both the OSF and Soros’ fund had secretly funded a cabal of ‘political assassins’ and media ‘hit-men’ since early last year, hands that were hired to assist former Malaysian premier Dr. Mahathir Mohammad launch a spite filled media campaign against 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), a sovereign wealth fund wholly owned by the government of Malaysia. My sources seem to think that some managers within the Caymans based Quantum Partners LP, a limited partnership company that is the flagship of the Quantum Business Empire, were complicit with Soros in realising the scheme.

The Soros-Blair-Rewcastle conspiracy to destroy Khadem Al Qubaisi

Soros’ ‘hitmen’ weren’t the only hands hired to wreck havoc on the Malaysian conscience. Some time in December 2014, Mahathir chaired a high profile roundtable in London to discuss plans to overthrow Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak, the Prime Minister of Malaysia. The meeting was attended by Tun Daim Zainuddin and some of Malaysia’s foremost capitalists, who were at the time complicit with Mahathir to destroy Najib. If what I am told is true, then, one of the capitalists who attended the meeting, Dato’ Justin Leong, is on team Mahathir to this very day.

The London meeting worked out the financing required to turn Mahathir’s devious scheme into reality. I am told, those involved had agreed on RM2 billion as the sum required to trigger a world media campaign against Najib and to grease the palms of some forty to fifty Members of the Malaysian Parliament from across the political divide.

Mahathir Daim

By then, Mahathir and his team had long sealed an agreement of sorts with Clare Rewcastle Brown, the sister-in-law of former British premier Gordon Brown, to run the gamut of conspiracy against Najib and 1MDB through Sarawak Report, a fake news channel that was run by Ms. Rewcastle and dictated upon by her husband, Andrew Brown.

The agreement came two months after people linked to a former British premier, Tony Blair, were said to have offered Ms. Rewcastle a glimpse into information that pertained to 1MDB and all its dealings with several Mideast entities. Soros, who put Blair’s people up to the idea, had wanted Ms. Rewcastle to turn Sarawak Report into a medium to jolt Chinese and Mideast investors out of their partnership agreements with 1MDB.

Jumbled in Blair’s stack of information were details to an agreement between 1MDB and the Abu Dhabi based International Petroleum Investment Company (IPIC) to guarantee obligations (principal and associated interests) by two of the Malaysian fund’s subsidiaries, 1MDB Energy Limited and 1MDB Energy (Langat) Limited. The obligations related to bonds worth USD3.5 billion that the subsidiaries had issued to raise the funds needed for the acquisition of two independent power producers (IPPs), Tanjong Energy Holdings Sdn Bhd and Genting Sanyen Power Sdn Bhd.

The manner in which 1MDB muscled its way into power generation compounded to Ms. Rewcastle’s husband’s frustrations. If you recall, I had detailed in a previous article (part four, link below) events that led to the setting up of Sarawak Report. In the article, I mentioned specifically how Ms. Rewcastle and her husband, Andrew, were particularly perturbed with the multi-billion dollar agreement that the State Grid Development Corporation of China (SGCC) had entered into with 1MDB to develop three hydro-electric facilities in Sarawak. Andrew wanted his wife to use Sarawak Report to funnel into the minds of the Chinese the idea that the Malaysian government was prone to engage in shady business tactics.

If what I am told is true, both Blair and Soros intended to implicate Khadem Al Qubaisi, the Managing Director of IPIC, as a key figure in an alleged scam to siphon millions and millions from 1MDB to finance the purchase of some luxury assets in the United States (US). Through information he received from banking officials and dignitaries from Mideast entities he was the advisor of, Blair was able to pry into Qubaisi’s dealings with corporate middlemen in the business of energy exploration and production.

Qubaisi

Both Blair and Soros were not pleased with partnership agreements worth RM18 billion that Qubaisi had sealed with 1MDB on the 12th of March 2013. Qubaisi, who was at the time the Managing Director of IPIC, sealed the agreements in his capacity as the Chairman of Aabar Investments PJS (Aabar), a subsidiary of IPIC that was fully owned by the government of Abu Dhabi. Blair needed Ms. Rewcastle to blacken Qubaisi’s name in order to sour relations between Aabar and 1MDB.

In other words, Qubaisi simply was the fall guy.



Most of the top secret information in team Blair’s possession were channelled by former banking officials from JP Morgan Chase & Co and Goldman Sachs Group Inc., two established financial institutions based in the US. JP Morgan had in one way or another facilitated some transfers for 1MDB and most of its attendant concerns, while Goldman Sachs was said to have underwritten USD6.5 billion in bond deals for 1MDB. Both the banks were privy to dealings that had gone on between 1MDB and several Mideast entities. Persons who were suspected to have leaked the information to Blair will be revealed in an upcoming article.

Apart from the banks, Blair had also sourced some highly confidential information from officials and dignitaries who were linked to two Mideast entities – PetroSaudi International Ltd, a Saudi based oil and gas exploration and production company, and Mubadala Development Company PJSC, a sovereign wealth fund wholly owned by the government of Abu Dhabi. Both PetroSaudi and Mubadala had separately entered into multi-billion dollar collaborative agreements with 1MDB while the Malaysian fund was yet in its infancy (refer part four).

Through the Rothschilds and the bankers who work for him, Soros has some serious tentacles sprawling all the way through American and British intelligence agencies, the CIA included. Several insiders from the British agencies seemed to know for sure that Mahathir was about to launch a series of scathing attacks against Najib in a bid to force a resignation from the latter. Equipped with such knowledge, Soros made it a condition that Ms. Rewcastle was to work together with Mahathir to sabotage 1MDB and to demonise Najib.

It dawned upon the billionaire magnet that if Mahathir’s people were to succeed Najib, the international conspiracy to sabotage 1MDB would go unnoticed, after which Soros would launch another campaign to oust team Mahathir in favour of a team that was led by jailed opposition leader Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim. To facilitate the mission, he began injecting funds worth some millions into the piggy banks of third party groups associated with Mahathir. The transfers were said to have occurred around the time the former premier entered into an agreement with Ms. Rewcastle to launch a spite-campaign against 1MDB, Najib and members of the Prime Minister’s immediate family.

Sources reveal that team Rewcastle (comprising Ms. Rewcastle, her husband and some of the latter’s associates) did in fact receive funds to run Sarawak Report, known to churn out fabrications and slander against several Malaysian dignitaries, most notable among them being the former Chief Minister of Sarawak, Tun Pehin Sri Haji Abdul Taib bin Mahmud. Some of the funds were said have been sourced through team Blair, while others seemed to originate from team Mahathir. It may well be that some of Soros’ funds had ended with team Rewcastle in a roundabout way.

In addition to the above millions, Soros had also shelled out funds worth a million ringgit in the form of ‘grants’ and ‘donations’ on the pretext of financing research into “the indoctrination of a civil and inclusive society.” The funds were channelled through a few professional bodies, interest groups and government-linked agencies that were sprawling with tentacles originating from camp Mahathir.

Interestingly, these funds came atop some additional millions that are said to have flowed through the aforementioned third party groups into the coffers of some NGOs that had participated either directly or from beneath the shadows in the protest that took place in central Kuala Lumpur on the 19th of November 2016.

According to the Malaysian mainstream, the protest was orchestrated by a Maria Chin Abdullah, the chairperson of Bersih 2.0 and the executive director of Persatuan Kesedaran Komuniti Selangor (Empower). But the truth is, not only did Mahathir and his associate, believed to be Matthias Chang, have a hand in the planning of the rally, they consorted with various Chinese and Christian associations and two groups of hardliner Muslim NGO’s to trigger bloodshed during the Saturday demonstration.

Just to be sure, some of the aforementioned funds had originated from the Soros Fund, while the grants and donations were sourced through the New York based OSF (Open Societies Foundation), an international network of civil societies and academies purportedly dedicated to building vibrant and tolerant societies “whose governments are accountable and open to the participation of all people.” But not many are aware that the OSF has for years harboured a secret agenda to legalise the sale of drugs the world over and had even funded ISIS and the subsequent migrant crisis which spread around the world.

And these are the kinds of people that Mahathir, Maria Chin Abdullah, Anwar Ibrahim, Dato’ Seri Khairuddin Abu Hassan, Matthias Chang, Datin Seri Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Tony Pua, Tian Chua, Dato’ Ambiga Sreenevasan, Dato Ezam Mohd Nor, the Malaysian Bar Council, former officials from the Malaysian Anti Corruption Agency (MACC), former and current officials from Bank Negara (BNM) and former officials with the Attorney General’s chambers have knowingly or unknowingly associated with.

But how did Mahathir manage to get the world media to participate?

Through Soros, of course.

The billionaire magnate owns significant holdings in all the major-league media channels and offers grants and donations to world news outlets that are willing to do to his bidding. In some cases, editors and journalists working for a news channel receive payments to deliver editorials in ways he deems fit.

That basically accounts for the almost complete blackout by the world media of the consent decree that Soros signed in a United States District Court over a Securities and Exchange Commission case involving stock manipulation. Soros was fined USD75,000 by the Commodities Futures Trading Commission for holding positions “in excess of speculative limits.” Many of you are not aware of the story simply because it was never reported by the mainstream media.

This is the same mainstream media that tells us how Soros has never received money from drug cartels or engaged in any form of criminal activity. But the truth is, he sets up most of his operations offshore, in zones that are known to be conducive for money laundering activity. A CIA Facebook posting described the Netherlands Antilles where Quantum is situated as “a transhipment point for South American drugs bound for the US and Europe, money-laundering centre.” This, too, is conveniently blacked out by the media.

Then, there is the fact that Soros had purchased a major stake in one of Columbia’s biggest banks at a time when the Drug Enforcement Administration released a study titled Columbian Economic Reform: the Impact on Drug Money Laundering within the Columbian Economy. The study revealed how major drug kingpins were pulling illicit drug revenue into legitimate businesses by taking advantage of the liberalised Columbian economy. You’re reading it for the first time here.

In other news, a Soros grant was once channelled to a Linda Evans, who former US president Bill Clinton pardoned for her involvement in the Weather Underground terrorist group. The group was responsible for a 1991 robbery in which three murders were committed and a series of bombings were executed. Members of the group were also responsible for the bombing of the US Capitol in November 1983. You were told of the murders and the bombings, but not of the grant that Soros had channelled to Linda Evans.

And neither did the media ever tell you of Soros’ approval for the unrestricted distribution of drugs to street children on the pretext of “preventing an outbreak of disease.” His funds have secretly financed politicians in the US and the UK who supported the legalisation of marijuana and who were supportive of the unrestricted sale of non-prescription drugs. Most news channels, the New York Times and Washington Post included, skate over the fact that the OSF played a major role in US policy-making in a bid to legalise the sale of marijuana.

Yes, what Soros aspires for is a docile world majority that is hooked on drugs and easy to control. And while the sale of marijuana is legalised, he makes the bucks, which in turn, helps finance most of his media campaigns against various world governments. Some of the funds were turned into grants and donations that ended with various media personalities and news channels.

Among the many news channels, establishments and personalities that were ‘silenced’ through Soros’ ‘donations’ and/or patronage are the MediaChannel.org, Media Access Project, CBS News, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, CNN, ABC, BBC, Dan Rather (CBS Evening News), Judith Miller (New York Times), Professor Mark Crispin Miller at New York University, Eric Alterman (whose mentor, I.F. Stone, was a KGB and Stalinist paid agent) of The Nation, Orvile Schell of the Los Angeles Times, the Independent Media Institute, the Centre of Investigative Reporting, Charles Lewis (former CBS News producer and head of Centre for Public Integrity), Danny Schecter, Fund for Investigative Journalism, and several investigative reporters and editors with various news networks.

That basically constitutes the controlling segment to the world media collective that channels ‘truths’ into the Malaysian mainstream and the internet. And just so that you know, Soros personally ‘owns’ The Guardian, a British national daily purportedly owned by the Scott Trust Limited, and lays terms on what may or may not be published. Incidentally, it was The Guardian that once published a breaking story on the so-called 1MDB conspiracy titled 1MDB: the Inside Story of the World’s Biggest Financial Scandal.

And let us not forget Marcus Ambrose Paul Agius, the so-called senior non-executive director of the BB’s board, the very news corporation that both Ms. Rewcastle and her husband were once associated with. Marcus is wed to Katherine de Rothschild, the daughter of Major Edmund Leopold de Rothschild, a well-placed English financier and member of the prominent Rothschild banking family of England. Through the Rothschilds association with the BBC, Soros wields some form of control over material that is aired by the news corporation.


I am told, it was Marcus who insisted that Soros get in touch with Ms. Rewcastle, whose guts the billionaire financier hates to this day. It is because of this hatred that Soros did not want to approach the Sarawak Report chief editor himself, which basically explains why it was Blair’s people who went to her instead. Then, late in November 2014, Soros was approached by a Mahathir associate to assist in launching a world media campaign to destroy Najib and 1MDB.
