Soros predicts the past with uncanny accuracy

George Soros just warned that something that just happened might happen.

Soros is portrayed as a pundit by the msm. But in fact, he is generally a step or two behind the times and keeps coming in way late with his "predictions," as I showed here.

In the above-linked article George absurdly warns:
    Allowing China's yuan to be a market currency would create "a binding connection" between the two systems. An agreement along these lines will be difficult to achieve, Soros said, but the alternative is so unpleasant. "Without it,there is a real danger that China will align itself with Russia politically and militarily, and then the threat of third world war becomes real, so it is worth trying."
Excuse me, George. There is no "danger that China will align itself with Russia politically and militarily." Unless you were temporarily off the planet during the recent Russia-China joint exercises in the Mediterranean and during the obvious show of military solidarity in Red Square, with thousands of Chinese and Russian soldiers marching in full view of the world, then you ought to know that these two countries have already firmly and unequivocally aligned with each other both economically and militarily! So why pretend it never happened and that you are predicting it? Is that all you've got, George?

Yes, George, of course the RMB must join the basket of currencies, but even if it does not, the RMB has already been accepted with open arms by almost all of our "allies," who, unlike the lagging US, have established RMB clearing centers in their capitals. I pointed that out here back in December of last year. And then I mentioned here that our allies had fled the World Bank for greener pastures at the Chinese-founded AIIB and I gave a likely explanation for just why they did, namely, that they were tired of being bullied.

Like the US government, George is leading from behind. When almost all US allies were weighing joining the Chinese bank AIIB, Obama warned them not to be so hasty. But they ignored this empty warning.

So what did Obama do? He led from behind, flip-flopped and endorsed the AIIB, with the proviso that they run it as the US runs World Bank – incorporating "social safeguards," which in Obamaspeak means that they must push gay marriage. But of course, this bullying by the US is one of the reasons China decided to found the AIIB in the first place.

The rest of the world is making all of the major choices for the US government and for its toadies like Soros. Soros' above-cited statements on this were throw-aways. Any analyst worth his salt knew that.

Soros is pretending to make predictions but in reality he is reciting recent history. But in a nation where no one notices, he can do that all he wants and the msm will keep featuring his predictions of the past.
