(CNN) - Billionaire financier George Soros has donated $1 million to the left-leaning super PAC American Bridge, a source with the organization said Monday.

The donation marks the first major foray into the 2012 presidential race for Soros, a high-profile supporter of President Barack Obama. In 2008 Soros helped the president raise a record amount of campaign cash.

In a statement, American Bridge's founder David Brock said Soros' donation would help his organization influence the 2012 election.

Well, duh! What we really want to know is which bridges you plan to try and blow up next.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Billionaire financier George Soros is pledging $2 million to political groups supporting progressive causes and President Barack Obama’s re-election, part of an effort by liberal donors to counterbalance large sums of money flowing to Republican candidates.

Soros’ contributions include $1 million to the advocacy group America Votes and another $1 million pledge to American Bridge 21st Century, an outside “super” political committee supportive of Obama’s campaign.

I hope he is soon the dearly departed. As someone else pointed out he isn’t giving away diddly compared to what he has or even what he has recently made. Unfortunately he has two sons who intend to carry his agenda on for him.

Another article on Drudge says, ........ “ ...... George Soros are preparing to inject up to $100 million into independent groups to aid Democrats’ chances this fall.


Sadly, the USA is harboring this economic terrorist. He should be sent to the nations he committed economic terrorism against and put on trial there.

We are such hypocrits in this nation. We demand terrorists be sent to us but we don’t send them to where they should be put on trial.

This evil piece of trash cannot croak soon enough.

Your picture of S and 0 may be closer than you think - - - :

Andrew Breitbart left us knowing more than he had time to disclose to us.

What did he know that we need to re-discover, document and publish?

Why are ALL of Obama’s important early documents forged?

Where was Obama during his “Lost Years?”

Why are there so few known Obama childhood friends?

How many of Obama’s childhood buddies are still alive?

Was Obama a FOREIGN student at Occidental, Columbia or Harvard?

Who wrote the checks for Obama’s education?

Where these question that Andrew Beitbart knew some of the answers to?

____________

To tie the above with some speculative food for thought, please indulge me, (but DO ponder the speculations), as I re-post one of my recently updated comments as follows:

A dictator, such as Obama, only has the power that the people give him.

Currently, at least 40 % of polled American voters are gladly willing to give Obama the necessary power to continue his arrogant dictatorship.

About 47 % of American voters pay NO Personal Federal Income Taxes. These voters are the “fair share” voter base for Dictator Obama. We, in the 53 %, then are paying this 47 % to vote for Obama by virtue of us paying taxes for ourselves AND them.

In this manner we are supporting the voters who vote for Obama, and they will vote to do so again in November.

Dictator Obama has designed Obama”care” to become active only AFTER he is to be re-elected, thus enabling THE NINE SUPREMES to delay ruling on the Constitutionality of the dictate of the individual mandate until Obama is once again the Illegal Foreign White House Occupier, (IFWHO).

The purpose of Dictator Baby-Doc Barack is simple: 1.) Regulate; 2.) Control; and 3.) Destroy. By his own count he has already achieved 60 % of his goals, according to the note he says he carries in his pocket.

Obama’s obvious arrogant and deep hatred of America could have only come from what he was taught in his childhood.

Since there are no known networks of childhood friends from Obama’s past, Obama was probably a member of a Marxist sleeper cell funded by wealthy men with a Marxist view of the World.

The lack of credible documents that has NOT been forged requires a long-term, highly skilled and well-funded support group.

Who the key members of Obama’s probable support group and probable sleeper cell were and are is well known to the Interpol, CIA and the FBI.

Will “Citizen Journalists” such as Breitbart Editor Joel Pollack be able to out-spy the latter two US tax-funded spy entities?

BTW, forget about the LAM, (Liberal Agenda Media), as they are saving their notes to write their tell-all Obama books after Obama has SAFELY retired back home in Kenya.

BTW, BTW, to all the doubters of the above speculations: what does your gut tell you?

______________________

The questions we ask
Are simple to say,
One wonders why they
Were not asked,
Back in the Day?

Meanwhile the drumbeat of Dictator, (in his own mind), Obama grows louder:

regulate —— control —— destroy —— Regulate —— control —— destroy —— REgulate —— control —— destroy —— REGulate —— control —— destroy —— REGU

Just the very tip of the iceberg. I expect Soros to spend over $50 million on this election.

"American Bridge is committed to being a permanent part of the progressive community by providing strategic support to organizations across the country and working to influence elections in 2012 and beyond," Brock wrote. "Thanks to investments by progressive leaders like Mr. Soros we have been able to build a cutting edge organization that we will continue to build upon in order to keeping providing effective and efficient services to the progressive movement."

And of course CNN isn't interested in telling what the "progressive movement"'s goals are.

Soros is a biz partner with ROmney in Jet Blue.
and Romney is PROUD of their relationship.

Soros owns the US vote counter company in Spain.

Soros runs America (now in serious peril).

Seeing as one of the founding principles of this Republic was ‘no taxation without representation’, then shouldn’t the reverse also perhaps apply? i.e. ‘no representation without taxation’. Meaning if you don’t pay your fair share to the state, or are living off the subsidies of others’ earnings, you also forfeit your right to participate in the selection of elected representatives.

GREAT IDEA!

Post a thread on it, complete with all the bells and whistles of an article, and ping me so I can add my cheap, verbal abuse!

Was Obama a FOREIGN student at Occidental, Columbia or Harvard?

Seeing the current election problems in Massachusetts, IF Obama did claim foreign student status, it would sink his presidency.

And the media DOES NOT WANT TO GO THERE.

They engage in naked treason for their covering up repeatedly for Democrats like Bill Clinton, John Edwards, and Barack Obama.

There was an article on americanthinker, a few months back, which expounded a well-reasoned view something along these lines:
