Latest Jack Ryan movie, Shadow Recruit, sadly reminds me too much of reality.
SPOILER ALERT, I thought I would get that out first lest you hate me for revealing too much, but I don’t think I really give a way enough to spoil anything. This is not necessarily a review of this movie but this post is more or less about the thoughts that I had during and after watching this movie.
First of all I was not planning to go and watch any movie at all but at my eldest son’s insistence, and my wife’s insistence that our 15-year-old and his Daddy have a little one-on-one Daddy-time, we decided to spend part of our Martin Luther King Jr day off from work and school watching this thriller. Turns out I really did enjoy the film, we both did, another reboot and re-imagining origin story about the characters that Tom Clancy first created years ago. Plus I really enjoy all of the actors in their past roles and now in this movie too.
Briefly, the premise of the movie is that it is about an ultra-secret plot within the Russian Government to undermine and destroy the US economy to create a devastating and worse second Great Depression. This is the world of this spy-thriller fiction, but, compare that with the fact that in reality there is an ultra-secret plot within the American Government to undermine and destroy the US economy, namely in the real-life person of evil, socialist, multi-billionaire, George Soros and his backing, especially financial backing, of the current President and the current radicalized Democrat party. The only reason it is ultra-secret in real life is because the main-stream media is merely an extension of the current radicalized Democrat party.
The actions of the current leaders shows that there is a plot to destroy the American economy. Due to the current actions of our current leaders we have the slowest job creation since the Great Depression, a number of failed stimulus packages, the highest sustained energy prices ever, the over regulating of business, the never-ending over spending, the failed Affordable Care Act or Obamacare, and a failing economy overall. Simply look at the fact that this current administration has acquired more debt than all previous presidents COMBINED. During the upcoming state of union address President Obama will not surprisingly do very little more other than continue to propose more spending and more economy-killing tax hikes.
Kenneth Branagh’s character, financial mogul, Viktor Cherevin, reminded of real-life, financial mogul, George Soros.
More on George Soros:
Shoot, my social media clout is so great that I probably just spoiled any of the Oscar award hopes that this movie ever had. 😀
Bear with me but I wanted to update this post and include a horrifying excerpt from Soros: Republic Enemy #1: http://web.archive.org/web/20101027070859/http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/14700
Remember this is Obama’s and the Democrats’ most fervent backer, including financial backer, and is embraced, albeit somewhat secretly, by the current US political leaders:
“The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States.”—George Soros…György Schwartz, better known to the world as George Soros, was born August 12, 1930 in Hungary…The Schwartz’s, who were non-practicing Jews, changed the family name to Soros, in order to facilitate assimilation into the gentile population, as the Nazis spread into Hungary during the 1930s. Soros is an Esperanto word meaning “to soar.”
In 1944 Hitler’s henchman Adolf Eichmann arrived in Hungary, to oversee the murder of that country’s Jews. The Soros children were all given fake identity papers, and were shipped out to various Christian families. George Soros ended up with a man whose job was confiscating property from the Jewish population. Soros went with him on his rounds.
Soros has repeatedly called 1944 “the best year of his life.”
In an article in the Wall Street Journal, Joshua Muravchik notes that, “70% of Mr. Soros’s fellow Jews in Hungary, nearly a half-million human beings, were annihilated in that year. They were dying and disappearing all around him, and their numbers no doubt included many whom he knew personally. Yet he gives no sign that this put any damper on his elation, either at the time or indeed in retrospect.”
During an interview with “Sixty Minute’s” Steve Kroft, Soros was asked about his “best year:”
KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who
swore that you were his adopted godson.
SOROS: Yes. Yes.
KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.
SOROS: Yes. That’s right. Yes.
KROFT: I mean, that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the
psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?
SOROS: Not, not at all. Not at all.
KROFT: No feeling of guilt?
Of course he didn’t feel guilty. Soros has the moral depth of a clam. Nonetheless, he has said, “my goal is to become the conscience of the world.”
