The Goldfinger Plot
By: Brooks A. Mick
In arguably the greatest James Bond movie of all, “Goldfinger,” Auric Goldfinger, played marvelously by Gert Frobe, planned to increase the value of his gold by setting off a small dirty nuclear bomb inside Fort Knox, rendering the gold there radioactive for 58 years. Makes one long for the good old days when the movie villains were easily identified and their dastardly schemes relatively simple-minded. Goldfinger planned to kill everyone on Fort Knox with nerve gas sprayed from small airplanes piloted by beautiful women, blow open the gate to the gold depository with dynamite, cut through the door with a gigantic industrial laser mounted in a truck, wheel in the nuclear device provided by the Chinese, and set it off. Voila! His gold store would immediately increase in value immensely.
Nowadays the villains aren’t so easily identified. Much of the time they work behind the scenes and one only occasionally even hears their names. Their public manifestations are handled by proxies or dupes.
Years ago, on September 16th, 1992, known as Black Wednesday thereafter, George Soros made much of his fortune through manipulation of the British pound-sterling. The Bank of England ultimately devalued the sterling and Soros earned an estimated 1.1 billion US dollars at the time. He apparently thought the whole thing humorous, as he was quoted as saying, “Our total position by Black Wednesday had to be worth almost $10 billion. We planned to sell more than that. In fact, when Norman Lamont said just before the devaluation that he would borrow nearly $15 billion to defend sterling, we were amused because that was about how much we wanted to sell.” Ah, yes, ruining the savings of hundreds of thousands of Englishmen was quite funny. Soros was named “the man who broke the Bank of England.” Very funny, George.
Sometimes a villain will make a practice run, a test scheme, to see if the ultimate plan is possible. What if the devaluation of the pound-sterling was just a test run? Would Soros make even more money if, let’s say, the US dollar was devalued? If the price of gold went sky-high? Well, yes he would! But how would he go about that trick? One might have to look back in time a long way to some not-so-obvious machinations.
Soros contributed greatly to the passage of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform. What, you might ask, would that have to do with ruining the economy of the United States and devaluing the dollar? Well, one primary effect of McCain-Feingold was to greatly increase the influence of the mainstream media on elections by limiting the influence of political action groups. Thus, knowing how liberal-leaning the MSM is, wouldn’t that make the election of liberal politicians more likely? And what do liberal politicians do? They spend even more than so-called conservative politicians! And they raise taxes. And they ultimately inflate the currency, thus devaluing it. Thus the price of gold goes up! Voila! Anyone who bet against the US dollar and hoarded gold would make a fortune.
Hmmm…I wonder if anyone has been betting against the dollar? You think…? One report out of London said on December 9th, 2009, “Traders believe selling the dollar is a one-way bet, and some latched on to rumors that speculators were building “short” positions on the dollar – betting it will tumble in the coming months.
One hedge fund manager, who asked not to be named, said: “I have heard that both Soros and Buffett are shorting the dollar. There’s a growing belief on Wall Street that the dollar is looking like a one-way bet downwards.”" You can’t put 100% faith in a “hedge fund manager who asked not to be named,” but then the “National Enquirer” is correct some of the time.
Some think Soros is not just out to make money, but has larger designs.
“The Soros-funded “Institute for New Economic Thinking” is designed to make research grants and fund symposiums on the need for central government control of the economy, advancing an argument from the political Left that the private economy is in need of the re-regulation to prevent the occurrence of another global economic recession.”
Considerable money from Soros-backed groups went into getting Barrack Obama elected president. And what’s Obama done that would fit with Soros’s Goldfinger Plot? Spending the country into an even more massive deficit than before. Scheming to take over 1/6th of the economy, health care, and through that get government’s meaty paws firmly clutched around the citizen’s health care gonads. Grab them by their health care gonads and their hearts and minds will follow. And by doing so, the confidence of the people in their government is declining at a rapid rate. To finance his schemes–or just to use that as an excuse–he plans massive taxation, enough to put the economy into a permanent stupor. The more poor people, the easier to sell liberal big-government schemes.
Perhaps not coincidentally, much of this fits with the Cloward-Piven scheme for ruining the economy and taking over the government.
Perhaps we should name it the Goldfinger-Soros-Cloward-Piven Plot. It might make a good plot for a movie.
In “You Only Live Twice,” the James Bond movie that followed “Goldfinger” in the series, Ernst Stavro Blofeld (You think that’s where James Earl Ray got his alias, Eric Starvo Gault?–couldn’t spell “Stavro” or “Ernst?) plotted to create a war between two nations by faking attacks upon one by the other. Let’s watch closely to see if Soros might copy that trick next. Hmmm…the jihad between Muslims and Any Other Religion To Be Named Later? No, probably too far-fetched.
But what came after “You Only Live Twice?” Is that where Soros and Obama are getting their ideas? A good excuse to watch all the old Bonds…
