Neo-con politicians take major hits in Eastern Europe

Political leaders supported by an unholy alliance of U.S. neo-conservative circles and George Soros’s pro-globalization forces have suffered a string of political defeats in Eastern Europe. Perhaps the biggest catastrophe for the neo-cons was in Poland where one of the stars of America’s interventionist foreign policy, Polish parliament speaker Radoslaw (Radek) Sikorski, announced his resignation after secret recordings emerged. The secret tapes scandal, known as «Waitergate», revealed Sikorski and several governing Civic Platform party officials discussing illegal deals involving bribery and extortion over expensive meals, rare bottles of wine, and Cuban cigars at plush restaurants in Warsaw.

Sikorski was foreign minister at the time the recordings were made. In typical fashion, the Russians are being blamed by Warsaw for bugging the restaurant tables and recording the conversations. However, the fact remains that it was the inherent corruption of the Civic Platform government that brought about the resignations of Sikorski and Health Minister Bartosz Arlukowicz, Treasury Minister Wlodzimierz Karpinski, Sports Minister Andrzej Biernat. Also resigning was Jacek Rostowski, the chief political aide to Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz, and the head of the Polish security services, Jacek Cichocki.

«Waitergate» also threatens Donald Tusk, the prime minister at the time the recordings were made in 2013. Tusk, now the President of the European Council, may now face calls for his resignation from the top job in Brussels, especially from Euro-skeptic parties in the European Parliament who have accused the European Union leadership with rampant corruption. The «Waitergate» conversations reveal a Tusk government that thrived on bribery, extortion, and embezzlement of public funds. Tusk, finding himself without much of a defense for the corruption of his former government, has accused Russia of being behind the bugging operations in Warsaw. However, Tusk, as is usual for any neocon, refuses to discuss the underlying graft and corruption by his one-time ministers.

One recording of Sikorski and then-finance minister Jacek Rostowski demonstrates Sikorski’s disdain for his American benefactors: «We’ll get into a conflict with the Russians and the Germans, and we’ll think that everything is super because we gave the Americans a blow job . . . Losers. Complete losers». The vulgar comments, like those between Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs Victoria Nuland and U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt, friends of Sikorski and his Washington Post neo-con columnist wife, Anne Applebaum, threaten to drive a wedge into the anti-Russian alliance built by Washington among eastern and central European countries. Sikorski also said in the taped conversations that British Prime Minister David Cameron used «stupid propaganda» and demonstrated «incompetence in European affairs».

Sikorski is a longtime habitué of neo-con activities in the United States. As a veteran senior fellow of the neo-con citadel, the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) he was once hailed as a «visionary» by the New York Sun, a noted neo-con outlet started by disgraced ex-convict Conrad Black, and which ended its print edition in 2008 amid financial ruin. At AEI, Sikorski worked alongside such ignominious neo-cons as Michael Ledeen and Richard Perle. It is believed by many that Sikorski, who became a British citizen in 1984, also worked as a U.S. intelligence asset during the Ronald Reagan Cold War years and after. Sikorski was a roving correspondent for the neo-con National Review from 1988 to 1998 and he worked as Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation representative in Warsaw from 1989 to 1992. While at AEI from 2002 to 2005, Sikorski also served as director of the New Atlantic Initiative, a neo-con contrivance that counted among its adherents Kateryna Chumachenko-Yushchenko and her husband, Viktor Yushchenko, the 2004 «Orange Revolution» – installed president of Ukraine.

In Moldova, a scandal involving the disappearance of over $1.5 billion from the country’s three largest banks resulted in the resignation in disgrace of Moldova’s Soros- and U.S. National Endowment for Democracy (NED)-inserted Prime Minister Chiril Gaburici. Other reasons for Gaburici’s resignation included the falsification of his high school and university diplomas.

The financial scandal was largely due to the machinations of Tel Aviv-born Moldovan-Israeli banker Ilan Shor, mayor-elect of Orhei and chairman of the board of the Saving Bank of Moldova. Shor also serves as the president of Banca de Economii, one of the three banks involved in the missing $1.5 billion. Records from Shor’s banks were removed from bank computers and placed in the trunk of a car owned by one of Shor’s companies. The car was later found burned with the only evidence of the records being the whitened ash found in the car’s trunk. The other two banks defrauded by Shor and his cronies – Unibank and Banca Sociala – were also involved in the illegal transferal of the over 10 billion lei (some $1.5 billion), which then disappeared. Shor’s fraud scheme also involved the laundering of money through Latvia’s Latvijas Pasta Banka. The ultimate goal of the fraud involved Shor’s desire to take control of the three main Moldovan banks.

Shor amassed much of his personal fortune from his ownership of duty-free shopping concessions at Chisinau International Airport. Shor’s duty-free airport business, Dufremol, was founded by his late father, Miron Shor, who used his fortune to financially support a number of Zionist and pro-Israeli causes in Moldova and other countries. Israel’s support network in Moldova and Europe began calling the charges against Shor and his Shor Group of companies an «anti-Semitic» conspiracy. Such actions are commonplace among the Soros propaganda network when either Soros, his Rothschild family accomplices, or crooks like Shor, Russian tax scofflaws Mikhail Khodorkovsky and Platon Lebedev, Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky, Russian-Israeli billionaire Leonid Nevzlin, or other members of the global «Kosher Nostra» are charged by the authorities with financial crimes.

Shor, who is a partner of another infamous Moldovan mafia boss, Gabi Stati, was placed under arrest by Moldovan authorities for the disappearance of the money, which amounts to one-eighth of Moldova’s gross domestic product. Shor’s swindling of the 1.5 billion dollars also involved two other Moldovan banks. The massive Moldovan fraud scheme resulted in local elections seeing gains for the pro-Russian communists with the mayor’s race in Chisinau heading for a run-off between the pro-European Union incumbent Dorin Chirtoaca and pro-Russian challenger Zinaida Greceanii. Pro-Russian businessman Renato Usatii cruised to an outright victory in Moldova’s second largest city of Balti.

Shor and Stati are as emblematic of «sticky fingers» corruption by the Soros-financed Western-oriented parties in Moldova as Kolomoisky, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, and Petro Poroshenko are in Ukraine. In fact, in 2009, Stati was arrested by Ukrainian authorities in Odessa, Ukraine after then-Moldovan president Vladimir Voronin accused Stati of organizing a coup d’état in Moldova. The fingerprints of Soros and the Central Intelligence Agency’s NED were all over the coup plot in Moldova.

The Moldovan and Polish financial scandals have brought the disinfectant of sunshine upon the Soros-connected and neo-con heralded underworlds that run the day-to-day affairs of Moldova and Poland. When one peels back the onion in these countries, as well as in Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Croatia, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and the Baltic states, the same network of vipers, vampires, and vultures are discovered preying on legitimate businesses, the taxpayers, and the general commonwealth.

The Soros-controlled media outlets, including Radio Free Europe/Liberty and others, are doing their very best to spin the fraudulent nature of the pro-Western governments of eastern and central Europe. However, the truth is shining through their attempts to distort and confabulate the truth.
