Membership of that committee--itself comprised of three members of the board--is a closely held secret at the bank.

But it does highlight an inherent conflict of interest in the way the board of directors operates: Where allegations of impropriety regarding its own members are concerned, the board serves as its own judge and jury. What's more, the board's code of conduct requires board officials to "protect the security of any information obtained in the performance of their duties," a requirement that applies to those officials "without limitation, after the terms of service as board officials has expired." In other words, it's a closed loop.

Thanks to the WSJ and O’Reilly, Georgie Boy can’t slither around like snake in the tall grass anymore.

The 5/9/07 Wall Street Journal article entitled “Axis of Soros” reports that the soon-to-be Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, is an “ally” of George Soros. Unless you are a card carrying member of the far-left, this is not good news. Soros believes in a stong centralized international government, correcting the “excesses of self-interest” and all of the other tenets of the “progressive” far-left. Soros hearts the nanny state.

George Soros who?

George Soros became famous when he shorted the English pound in 1992 – he made a BILLION (!?!) pound profit and seriously damaged the British economy in the process. Soros is the 80th richest man in the world, a Hungarian Jew and an anti-semite. German Nazis took over Hungary when Soros was 13; he survived by pretending that he wasn’t Jewish, disquised as the son of a non-Jewish neighbor. He studied at the London School of Economics and he made his money trading, primarily hedge funds.

George Soros hates George Bush and he hates America, and he has in recent years devoted much of his fortune to bringing down Bush and to bringing down America.

He gave $23.5 million dollars to “527” groups (lobbying groups) in order to defeat George Bush in 2004. (Thereby inadvertantly proving that money really isn’t everything.)

Presently, he channels money to Moveon.org, Center for American Progress, Open Society Institute, Democracy Alliance, Tides Foundation, and Media Matters. All of these groups work to promote the far-left political agenda, to influence the media and to defeat the Republicans.

According to the New York Times, anti-war lobbying groups, spearheaded by Soros’ Moveon.org, have a conference call EVERY morning with Democratic law makers in Washington D.C. George Soros has cleverly found a legal way to buy direct access and influence in Washington.

Hyscience.com links to a Fox news report with Bill O’Reilly which goes into depth about Soros’s influence in Washington.

The fact that Gordon Brown is an ally of George Soros is not good news for England or America.
