According to George Soros’ Open Society Foundations, Mark Malloch-Brown officially took over the central organization of the Soros-funded network on January 1st. So, who is Mark Malloch-Brown, and what does his appointment as President of Open Society Foundations likely mean for the International Organization for the Family (IOF) and the pro-family movement?
Mark Malloch-Brown is George Soros’ closest Lieutenant. The two have a relationship going back more than thirty years. Soros has greatly valued Malloch-Brown as both a business and political advisor. Malloch-Brown has held top positions in the Soros network, including Vice President of Soros’ Quantum Fund, as well as Vice-Chairman of Soros Fund Management, and has been on the Global Board of Directors of Soros’ Open Society Foundations for several years.
Many in the traditional media like to describe Malloch-Brown as a journalist and diplomat, but that description badly misses the mark. Malloch-Brown is a political operative who has parlayed his considerable skills into increasingly important positions over his 40+ year career. Malloch-Brown once helped lead the renowned Democrat political consulting firm Sawyer-Miller, a pioneering firm in the profession. Sawyer-Miller was known for a heavy reliance on polling – then a rarely-used research technique in political consulting. The firm elected numerous big-name Democrat politicians including John D. Rockefeller IV, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Edward M. Kennedy and John Glenn, along with half a dozen prominent Democrat state governors. They then parlayed those connections into a rich roster of corporate clients, including Coca-Cola, Apple Computer and Goldman Sachs.
Malloch-Brown left his consulting firm to take a top position with the World Bank, where he immediately deployed his skills in political communications (including an expensive blitz of newspaper and television advertising aimed at opinion leaders) to remake the reputation of that institution from one of “arrogance” to one of a “listening bank.” From there, Malloch-Brown went to the United Nations, where he had worked previously, and eventually became Secretary General Kofi Anan’s Chief of Staff and then Deputy Secretary General, the second most powerful position at the UN.
In 2007, Malloch-Brown was tapped to become Minister of State for Britain’s incoming leftist Prime Minster Gordon Brown. He had responsibility for dealing with Africa, Asia and the United Nations, and in the process was named a member of the House of Lords. His appointment was cheered by leftists, some of whom referred to him as “Saint Mark.” However, just two years into his service, Malloch-Brown resigned his post, citing family reasons, and returned to the private sector.
Of interest, one of the private sector positions that Malloch-Brown has held in recent years is Chairman of the Board of the holding company that owns Smartmatic, the elections software system used in numerous US states (and in other countries) to tabulate votes. Legal experts supporting President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign have alleged that Smartmatic software may have been used to switch votes from Donald Trump to Joe Biden and otherwise manipulate vote counts to help Biden overcome a large deficit on Election Night in key states. Smartmatic denies any wrongdoing, but it is certainly interesting that Soros’ top ally and the Chairman of Smartmatic has taken over his Open Society Foundations at the same time that Joe Biden is preparing to assume the presidency of the United States following a hotly-contested election with many questioning the official results.
What does Mark Malloch-Brown’s ascendancy at Open Society Foundations mean for IOF and the pro-family movement? Unfortunately, more of the same, and then some. His agenda is George Soros’ agenda. Soros has invested over $30 billion in his Open Society Foundations group. Now 90 years of age, you can be certain that Soros has picked a successor who will safeguard his investment and continue to push to remake the world in his radical leftist image.
The presumed election of Joe Biden will provide the Soros empire though Mark Malloch-Brown many opportunities to pursue their agenda in the United States, including abortion on demand, transgenderism, open borders, defund the police, decriminalize drugs, and redefine marriage and family, among many other elements.
But Soros, Malloch-Brown and Joe Biden will not be content to contain their agenda at the water’s edge. They will export it across the world, and use international bodies like the United Nations to try to impose it on developing countries everywhere, especially in Africa. Remember, after years of having helped run the United Nations, the World Bank and other international institutions, Mark Malloch-Brown knows how to pull the levers of power.
We also should expect a much-heightened political focus, and especially enhanced proactive communications to come from the Soros network of groups, starting with Open Society Foundations itself. IOF expects that under Mark Malloch-Brown, the left will become more outspoken, more aggressive and more demanding of social change that is in line with their dangerous agenda. Malloch-Brown is a skilled communicator and accomplished political operative, far more so than previous personnel in his position.
This expected heightened political focus is very likely to involve increased attention and criticism of IOF, in particular. Within days of naming Malloch-Brown as the new head of Open Society Foundations last month, the Soros network’s media platform openDemocracy published an “expose” detailing what they claim is hundreds of millions in “dark money” spent overseas by a “global empire of the US Christian right” in order to fight against “women’s and LGBTIQ rights.” The report attributes much of this supposed “empires of influence” to the administration of President Donald Trump and to IOF’s World Congress of Families. With the Trump administration wrapping up, it is unmistakably clear that IOF will become the world’s top target of the George Soros empire. You can bet that Mark Malloch-Brown is already at work developing plans to try to take IOF on, as well as the entire pro-family movement.
