George Soros Spent Record Amount Lobbying During Trumpís First Year
Free Beacon ^ | 1/24/2018 | Joe Schoffstall

Liberal billionaire George Soros spent more on lobbying during President Donald Trump's first year in office than he has in any previous year, disclosure forms show.

The Open Society Policy Center, a D.C.-based 501 (c)(4) nonprofit that focuses on domestic and international advocacy efforts and is a separate entity from Soros's Open Society Foundations, poured $16.2 million into lobbying throughout the entirety of 2017.

Soros's group reported spending $4.6 million during the first half of 2017 on its lobbying efforts. During the third quarter, Soros added $1.25 million to the total. Most of the lobbying expenditures—$10.3 million—were spent during the fourth quarter, which spans from October 1 to December 31.

Soros ramped up his efforts as the year progressed by pushing funds toward issues that have been seen as a direct attack on the deep-pocketed financier, such as Hungary's Bill on Foreign Funded Organizations (LexNGO), a crackdown on foreign-funded organizations in that country.

So, are all these funds paid to American lobbyists? Making this another way Trump is boosting the economy?

Peanuts. A billion is 1000 million. He has several of these (billions) at his disposal.

Deport the treasonous Soros who attempts to singlehandedly revoke the U.S. Constitution.

His ‘citizenship’ is a travesty and an abomination.

There must be a way to freeze ALL of Soros’s assets if not, create one.

Sadly, $16.2 million is merely pocket change to this son of Satan. It has less impact on his finances that if you or I were to take a dime and a penny out of our change purse to contribute to a senior who was deciding what item to take out of their rung up order to get the supermarket line moving again.

I wonder how much of Soros' $$ went straight into the pockets of Congressional RATs and Pubbies.

Probably reporting only about one-tenth of what they really spent. Lied, concealed, and hid nine-tenths.

America will never be great again until Soros is either deported or thrown in prison.

Sardonic joke

I suspect that soros’ collaboration with the nazis during WWII could make a case that he’s a war criminal. I don’t believe there is any statute of limitations in that regard either.

At the very least he should be stripped of US citizenship and deported.

Yes and round-up any lobbyist who cashed his check as a co-conspirator.

Sieze would beat freeze. Liquidate and distribute to the descendants of the Jews he plundered and relegated to the gas chambers.

That would be the ideal way to slow Soros down but he probably has a way to divert any seizure plans.
