For all his nice words about promoting open societies and democracy, Soros' "philanthropy" has supported some of the most closed and corrupt leaders, such as Boris Yeltsin in Russia in the 1990s or Petro Poroshenko in Ukraine after the 2014 US coup.
Could it be that Soros is
now signaling a decision by a major faction of the
that be,' to end their support of Xi in favor of other rival
He reviewed the history of China's communist leaders since Mao, whom he calls a catastrophe for China, through to Mao's rival, Deng Xiao Peng, who opened China to western investment in the 1980s.
Soros describes Deng in glowing terms:
Hard Critique of Xi
Deng's successors, Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao, were careful not to violate the opening up market economic success initiated by Deng.
However after Xi Jinping took power in 2012, Soros notes,
Soros identifies what he calls a sharp internal factional struggle inside the CCP:
The key date he notes is the October CCP Party Congress, where Xi plans to break the two-term limit on Chinese presidents set by the late Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping.
Internal Factional Wars?
According to SinoInsider, a New York-based China political risk consultancy which specializes in analysis of internal factions within the China CCP elites, since he came to power in 2012,
This faction war, they say, is behind Xi Jinping's crackdown on select Chinese private giant companies such as Jack Ma's Alibaba Group.
According to Japanese senior journalist, Katsuji Nakazawa, who was chief China correspondent for Nikkei,
If this is accurate, it would suggest that in order to decapitate his internal rivals, Xi has risked plunging China's economy, especially its bloated real estate sector with its huge debts, into what seems to be in,
Ominous New Tone
This is apparently the background that Soros clearly references in his remarks at Hoover Institution.
In his Hoover remarks, Soros also refers to the grave issue of ongoing demographic collapse in China which is ending the previous pool of low wage labor that spurred the dramatic growth of the past thirty years.
And making Xi's situation more precarious, Soros notes that far from the brilliant success praised two years ago by WHO and others of the XI Covid strategy, there is the debilitating impact on the economy of Xi's heralded "zero tolerance" covid lockdown strategy that is closing entire cities such as Xi'an, and the huge container port city, Tianjin.
Soros' concluding words are ominous and foreboding about Xi Jinping's prospects:
Can it be that powerful circles in the globalist elite have concluded that Xi is no longer useful to their agenda?
The Hoover Institution speech is not the first time Soros has been critical of China of late, though it is far the most explicit in advocating an end to the Xi rule.
In a September 6, 2021 Wall Street Journal OpEd, Soros wrote a sharp rebuke of fellow Wall Street investor BlackRock for its recent decision to open a Chinese mutual fund:
Soros went on to say,
The fact that so influential a globalist as George Soros openly calls for the end of the Xi era suggests that a major faction within the Western globalists has decided to do whatever possible to bring a more "pliable" leadership in Beijing.
Globalists at the level of Soros or Schwab do not make major interventions impulsively.
The fact Soros is doubling down in his attacks directly on Xi suggest that a very powerful group of the Davos Great Reset green agenda have decided that Xi has become an obstacle to their dystopian agenda to eliminate the nation state everywhere, including China and USA.
Could it be that a nationalist Xi Jinping, who has declared intent in recent months to annex Taiwan by force if necessary, after forcefully ending the Sino-Anglo HongKong treaty in 2020, is endangering the entire globalist Davos Great Reset agenda?
Soros is an Agenda Contributor of Schwab's World Economic Forum and frequent guest to Davos.
His son, Alexander Soros, is the Deputy Chair of the Open Society Foundations and one of the World Economic Forum's Young Global Leaders of 2018.
Moreover Soros' decades of funding Color Revolutions since the 1980's arguably have advanced the end of the nation-state through collapsing regimes everywhere from the Soviet Union in 1991 to the Arab Spring in 2011 and Ukraine in 2014.
Could it be that the Davos circles around Soros have decided to actively join the party rivals of the CCP to help topple Xi...?
