James Bond's most vicious villain ever: George Soros
James Bond, agent 007 for Britain's MI-6 foreign intelligence service, has taken on villains ranging from Ernst Stavro Blofeld and Dr. Julius No to Auric Goldfinger and the Rupert Murdoch-like Elliot Carver. However, it seems that Bond, after a storied career, has now met his match in George Soros, a Bond-like villain if there ever was one.
After the last Bond film Quantum of Solace, in which a shadowy network of deep-pocketed financiers attempt to stage a coup in a progressive-led Latin American country -- Bolivia -- it appears that Soros found the film's villain -- Quantum -- a bit too close to his Quantum Group of Funds, based in Curacao, and which is flush with Rothschild family investments.
James Bond always takes on Britain's enemies of the day and there is ample evidence that the real MI-6 has cooperated with the Bond script writers to ensure that Bond is taking on very true-to-life fictional enemies. In 1992, Soros broke the Bank of England by shorting the pound sterling. Soros is up to his same tricks again and undermining the pound.
Soros's activities ensured that there would be a sequel to Quantum of Solace, in which the head of the Quantum global crime organization would finally emerge.
However, something funny happened on the way to the Bond movie set. MGM, the Bond series' production firm, suddenly found itself in financial trouble. WMR's intelligence sources report that Leonard Blavatnik, a one-time Soviet Jewish refusenik who emigrated to the United States and a Soros ally -- is pressuring MGM to sell to him. Production has ceased on the Quantum sequel, given the working title of "Bond 23," even after a major script re-writing, said also be as a result of pressure from Soros, which would have featured actress Rachel Weisz playing the head of the Quantum criminal syndicate.
However, EON Production of London, which is the Bond production company of Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson, halted production on the film that was due to star once again actor Daniel Craig in the leading role of James Bond. Broccoli is the daughter of famed Bond film producer Albert Broccoli, who narrowly escaped dying after he canceled his ticket on BOAC flight 911 from Tokyo. Flight 911 crashed near Mount Fuji shortly after takeoff, killing everyone on board. Broccoli was in Japan scouting locations for the next Bond movie, which was, interestingly, You Only Live Twice.
Although Time Warner Inc. and Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. are also making bids for MGM, Blavatnik appears to have a leg up because of the financial assets he has at the ready. MGM was bought by a group of investors in 2005 for $5 billion. They stand to take a financial bath because MGM is not expected to fetch more than $2 billion. Two of the MGM investors, Sony Corporation and Comcast, have written off their investments as losses.
It appears that with Bond, the fictional Quantum has met the real Quantum. Blavatnik, who shies away from media attention, After earning an MBA from Harvard, Blavatnik started the secretive investment firm Access Industries. Blavatnik combined forces with his old Moscow Institute chum Viktor Vekselberg's Renova company to capture control of the collapsed Soviet Union's oil and aluminum resources. Blavatnik was one of a number of Russian Jews who took advantage of the defunct USSR to prey on what was left in order to enrich themselves. You don't have to be James Bond to figure out that these Russian Jewish tycoons were engaged in wholesale looting of the Soviet and, subsequently, the Russian treasuries.
Blavatnik and Vekselberg eventually ended up with significant stakes in Russia's number three oil firm, TNK-BP, the world's largest aluminum company, as well as in Russian media, telecommunication, coal, and real estate firms. In 2006, Blavatnik bought 25 percent of the shares in the Russian telecommunication firm Svyaz invest from Soros, who originally bought the stake eight years prior for $1.87 billion. It turns out having friends like Soros paid off for Blavatnik -- Blavatnik flipped the investment later by selling his stake to Russian billionaire Vladimir Yevtushenkov for $1.3 billion, thus doubling his initial investment.
Although he avoids the media, Blavatnik does not avoid board memberships. He sits on academic boards at Cambridge University, Harvard Business School, and Tel Aviv University, as well as on the board of the Russian aluminum giant, United Company RUSAL. Blavatnik also serves on the board of the New York Academy of Sciences along with Mehmood Khan, senior vice president of another worthy Bond villain, Goldman Sachs.
Blavatnik, along with Mikhail Fridman and Vekselberg, continue to hold a major stake in TNK-BP and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has made no secret of his desire for the Russian Jewish oligarchs to be bought out of their interests in TNK-BP by the Russian state. However, the oil tycoon troika is holding out.
In 2007, Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild hosted a swank and ritzy reception in London for outgoing British Prime Minister Tony Blair and his wife Cherie. Blair hob-nobbed with a select group of American and other billionaires hoping to land lucrative work after his success in steering Britain into a bloody occupation of Iraq as a favor for George W. Bush. Among the billionaires present were Blavatnik; Ron Burkle, the grocery chain magnate who gave Bill Clinton work after he left office; oilman Sid Bass, Lehman Brothers' manipulative CEO Richard Fuld -- who was busy setting up shadow Lehman business deals through Hudson Castle, fashion mogul Calvin Klein, billionaire cosmetic heirs Leonard and Ronald Lauder -- a few months later Ronald Lauder was elected president of the World Jewish Congress, and Mexican telecommunication billionaire Carlos Slim Helu.
One can understand why the "new Bond" played by Craig irked the moneyed classes around the world. Craig's Bond was taking on the secretive world's elite -- which use proxies to capitalize from wars, coups, assassinations, and other mayhem. James Bond, who saved the world from KGB and North Korean renegade officers, the minions of the criminal organization SPECTRE, and an insane media tycoon, could not save the world from real life villains like Quantum. Today's James Bond died in a heroic battle with the Soros-Rothschild-Blavatnik ilk that really runs the world. Possibly, another, dandier, Bond will take his place But for James Bond, vanquisher of the world's secret money cabals, it is adieu. RIP 007 as we most recently knew you.
As for Craig, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Putin, perhaps he can take on a new role. A young KGB Colonel Vladimir Putin, a judo expert, who battles, from his East Berlin headquarters, the Rothschild-Soros-Blavatnik cabal who are working through NATO to bring about the financial and political collapse of the Soviet Union to permit the wholesale looting of the USSR's valuable resources by the evil capitalist robber barons....
