George Soros -- the rich man who is hated around the world
Fox News ^ | February 27, 2012 | Dan Gainor

Posted on 02/29/2012 6:39:11 AM PST by opentalk

George Soros has donated more than $8 billion globally to his Open Society Foundations. Couple that with decades of investing around the world and it would be easy to assume Soros in a figure of global popularity.

Only he isn’t. He’s almost the polar opposite.

Soros made headlines recently warning of increased economic problems, the growth of Occupy Wall Street and government repression what he characterized as “strong-arm tactics to maintain law and order.” In short, the kind of chaos helped foment in the old Soviet Union and elsewhere.

In his book “Open Society,” Soros credits his foundation with “mobilizing civil society” against the government in Slovakia and Croatia, among others. He readily calls himself “an active participant in the revolution that swept away the Soviet system.”

So when Soros talks of chaos, it’s a subject he knows well. The only question is his involvement.

Most everywhere Soros, his foundations or his investment money has gone, trouble has followed.
He’s helped start revolutions, undermined national currencies and funded radicals around the world.

Soros has been convicted of insider dealing in France and fined $3 million, fined another $2 million in his native Hungary.

His “foundations have been accused of shielding spies and breaking currency laws” and his investing strategy has been targeted for harming several national currencies.

That’s not the story the broadcast networks have been telling about Soros for the past five years

Easiest way to grasp it: Try to picture what would have happened to some clown like Soros attempting to do bear raids on the English currency system when Churchill was PM.....

This was interesting from the article

...In November, 2003 Al Jazeera reported, “men in battle fatigues have raided the Moscow headquarters of billionaire investor George Soros.” One of the Open Society executives said the attackers had removed documents as a “climax to a long-running commercial dispute.” Soros’s fund pulled out of Russia that year, after having lost a reported $2 billion.

Soros and his gangsters should be the target of freedom lovers everywhere. He is our arch enemy.

Soros was convicted of a felony in Frnace. He has admitted to helping the Nazis seize the land of Jews. People have been deported for less.

If you’re America’s enemy, George Soros is your friend.

We ought to revoke Soros’s naturalization and send him back where he came from. Bar him from this country.

Correct. The Bank of England was nearly brought down by Soros, though a rogue trader in Singapore conveniently took the blame and served prison time back in the mid-1990's.

Soros then proceeded to make billions by shorting the Thai Baht, Malaysian Ringgit and Indonesian Rupee. It was only massive intervention by Singapore, which nearly took down the Singaporean Dollar, which saved that region of the world from economic collapse. Business people in that region of the world have no illusions about who Soros really is. Nor is his white house puppet particularly popular.

If Congress had any courage at all, Soros’ involvement in the 2008 housing bubble and the moratorium on offshore drilling, from which he made more billions, would be thoroughly investigated. Soros would probably spend his retirement in prison. Instead this guy will likely die in his bed, despite being a primary channel for the force of evil, including “gay” “marriage,” population implosion, the economic destruction of America and much of the free world, to name a few of his “achievements.”

Sorso Backgrounder

Soros Supports Reducing Us Sovereignty

---‘Some global system of political decision-making’ in which ‘the sovereignty of states must be subordinated to international law and international institutions’ when ‘collective interests’ are at stake.”
(Matthew Rees, “Saving Capitalism From Soros,” The Ottawa Citizen, 12/9/98)

... “‘I’ve come to the conclusion,’ Soros told Fortune, ‘that one can do a lot more about the issues I care about by changing the government than by pushing the issues.’ In short, he has become the world’s angriest billionaire.”
(Mark Gimein, “George Soros Is Mad As Hell,” Fortune, 10/27/03)

You bet, Russia has devised a strategy to push Soros to operate in the West by seizing his assets, killing his people in Russia, and illustrating that he will be safe IF he stays in the West, thus exporting the Soros curse to competing nations without the stones to liquidate him.

This guy is still breathing and has no health problems.

Two possible explanations:

  1. He is extremely lucky.
  2. He is the Antichrist in the flesh and will only be bound when Jesus makes his second coming.

It's unbelievable how evil lives long and never gets ill. Like Pelosi and Reid and Al Sharpton. My list is long.

Yeah, well Satan must have an awfully good Employee Health Plan.

Soros once crashed the Indonesian economy. I am told by reliable sources that if he ever showed up on the sidewalk there without his bodyguards the mobs would beat him to death inside of five minutes.

I read that his brother has Parkinson’s. He should have donated that $8 billion for research.

Probably for the same reason nicolae carpathia was able to walk out of the White House after a missile made a direct hit on it.
