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.

20161206-soros-mahathirThe 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).


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.

20161206-mahathir-daimBy 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.

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.
