Skip to comments.George Soros Helped Craft Stimulus then Invested in Companies Benefiting
Posted on 11/21/2011 1:33:12 PM PST by BAW
Billionaire George Soros gave advice and direction on how President Obama should allocate so-called stimulus money in a series of regular private meetings and consultations with White House senior advisers even as Soros was making investments in areas affected by the stimulus program.
Its just one more revelation featured in the blockbuster new book that continues to rock Washington, Throw Them All Out, authored by Breitbart News editor Peter Schweizer.
Mr. Soros met with Mr. Obamas top economist on February 25, 2009 and twice more with senior officials in the Old Executive Office Building on March 24th and 25th as the stimulus plan was being crafted. Later, Mr. Soros also participated in discussions on financial reform.
Then, in the first quarter of 2009, Mr. Soros went on a stock buying spree in companies that ultimately benefited from the federal stimulus.
Soros doubled his holdings in medical manufacturer Hologic, a company that benefited from stimulus spending on medical systems
Soros tripled his holdings in fiber channel and software maker Emulus, a company that wound up scoring a large amount of federal funds going to infrastructure spending
Soros bought 210,000 shares in Cisco Systems, which came up big in the stimulus lottery

I honestly do not know how he is still alive.
Why is anyone surprised?
I would like a news-person to get Martha Stewart’s opinion.
Insider trading........ kerry, Pelosi, boehner
Soros is like the material you get on the bottom of your shoe that never seems to entirely scrap off. The odor still remains.
All this stuff happened in the first quarter of 2009. It is now the fourth quarter of 2011 and this is the first we hear anything about it.
It is written up in a small web blog and still ignored by the MSM.
No wonder Barry was so intent on keeping it. He wanted the boss to be able to reach him at any time. Obama also hosted his boss to the White House four times in 2009.
Anyone who thinks Obama is actually running things is delusional. Soros is the true power in this country.
True Evil never dies.
That would be because, like Obama, the "media" don't want to offend their boss either.
When Soros says “jump,” his pet Barry replies “Yassuh, boss!”
I’m getting a mental image of Ox teaching the goof to play poker in the movie Stripes. “If it was me, I’d go all in, but that’s me, I’m aggressive.”
That’s what George Soros does. It’s his business.
Why should anyone be surprised.
If it’s good enough for Pelosi and Boehner why not Soros?
Lock this predator up.
And other congress insider traders.
Life is sweet for congress critters.
No difference than both sides of congress benefiting from insider trading.
Funny how it only a “special interest” when funding conservatives.
Funny how Democrats point the finger at the extreme elements of the Republican Party. Most of those Democrats are the hard left.
hmmm.... congress-critters can not be prosecuted for insider trading
...but private citizens can
Isn’t Soros a private citizen?
Silly Goose, the Media and Soros are one and the same in their Marxist goals.
This isn't any kind of business. This isn't creating a useful product or service. This isn't investing in the economy.
This is a lying parasite making money off corrupt politicians and the taxpayers. This is like Obama and Biden’s friend Corzine stealing millions and getting away with it. This is like Solyndra. This is what is destroying America.
I repeat: This is what Soros does. This is his business.
Of course you are right. Soros is a parasite.
He was a parasite when he helped Hitler rob the Jews during WW2 , and he is still a parasite. He creates a problem and he creates a profit from it.
He is a natural born POS,scum, someone should have stepped on years ago, He became rich off the misery of others.You may not call it a business, but it has made Soros a rich man.
