No Joke: Obama/Soros Promote “Open Government”

=======================

From Canada Free press

September 23, 2011

by Cliff Kincaid

The Obama State Department and a George Soros-funded organization calling itself Global Integrity have launched an “Open Government” international initiative that should be a subject of late-night jokes.

“Here in the United States, we’ve worked to make government more open and responsive than ever before,” Obama said, as his administration fights congressional requests for information about the Solyndra bankruptcy and the U.S.-Brazil alliance to help the socialist and pro-Castro Latin American country develop its own oil resources.

Interestingly, the new “Open Government Partnership project was announced on Tuesday at the United Nations by President Obama and Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff, a former Marxist terrorist.

The Obama Administration’s failure to produce documents related to a $535 million federal loan guarantee issued to solar panel maker Solyndra prompted the Republican majority on a House Energy and Commerce Committee panel to subpoena the material.

Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL), Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, says the congressional probe has been “hampered by a lack of cooperation from this Administration, which forced us to issue a subpoena for certain records.”

“Since the first day of his Administration, President Barack Obama has made Open Government a high priority,” declares the Open Government Partnership National Action Plan.”

This would be laughable were it not for the fact that the initiative and its cheerleaders, including those at the Soros-funded Center for American Progress, are apparently taking it seriously.

But the conservative legal group Judicial Watch has filed a number of lawsuits, complaints and Freedom of Information Act legal actions against President Barack Obama and his administration “in pursuit of the president’s repeated violations of the law and his contempt for the public’s right to know.”

Obama used his U.N. speech on Wednesday to urge the world to “harness the power of open societies” in order to fight corruption. This sounded very much like George Soros, a funder of this new project who has been spending hundreds of millions of dollars a year promoting “open societies” in the U.S. and around the world. Soros, one of the richest men in the U.S., named one of his foundations the “Open Society Institute” but runs a secretive off-shore hedge fund, the Quantum Group of Funds, based in the Caribbean country of Curaçao, a tax haven.

Investigative reporter Matthew Vadum notes, “Soros talks a good game when it comes to openness and transparency. With an obedient media in tow, he postures as a defender of business ethics and good government but the lofty ideals he espouses apply only to other people. In the end, when his personal interests are at stake, his professed ideals get discarded like yesterday’s racing form. So it shouldn’t surprise anyone that this man who has described himself as ‘some kind of god’ now doesn’t want to comply with new disclosure rules that accompany the Dodd-Frank law. To avoid complying, he is closing his $25 billion Quantum funds to investors outside his family.”

Vadum points out that Soros objects to simply registering with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) because “it would open up Soros’s shady dealings to unprecedented public scrutiny.”

Soros, convicted of insider trading in France, engaged in a complex financial transaction that resulted in the Bank of England losing billions of dollars defending the British pound before having to devalue it. He has controversial investments in places like Colombia, where the banks have been penetrated by drug cartels eager to launder their drug money.

In a major court case filed by the law offices of David H. Relkin, Soros was charged with “money laundering, bankruptcy fraud, and bid rigging” and of having a “pattern of money laundering activities.” A Soros representative was quoted by the Reuters news agency as saying that the lawsuit was completely without merit.

The Soros role in the U.S. housing market collapse continues to be a subject of much controversy, stemming from a meeting he had with John A. Paulson, a Wall Street trader who made billions of dollars on the decline in housing prices.

A possible Soros role in the Obama Administration’s dealings with Brazil continues to generate controversy.

The administration officially launched an “energy partnership” with Brazil in August. “We want to work with you. We want to help with technology and support to develop these oil reserves safely, and when you’re ready to start selling, we want to be one of your best customers,” Obama had told a group of Brazilian business leaders in May 2011.

The U.S. Export-Import Bank had proposed $2 billion in loans to the Brazilian oil company Petrobras to ensure the purchase of U.S. goods as the company explores for oil.

However, in an April 29, 2011 letter to Fred Hochberg, President of the Export-Import Bank, Senator David Vitter complained that the administration was stonewalling his request for specific information as it relates to ExIm loans to Petrobras. He said, “I was very specific about the information I requested from ExIm more than a month ago. I requested the particulars of the return on investment the American taxpayer can expect from these loans as well as the U.S businesses intended to benefit from the financing arrangements. Is it safe to assume that ExIm does preliminary analysis before issuing loans that evaluates the return on these loans to the U.S. Government and U.S. Businesses? Is it also safe to assume that ExIm should readily be able to provide that information to congress upon request?”

The Kingpin of Hedge Funds: Soros Says “Don’t Blame Me”

 

The recent run on the Stock Market, plunging to nearly -1000 points in 25 minutes before an almost instanteous recovery makes one wonder; WHO was behind this?

First this:

By Joy Tiz  Friday, May 7, 2010

Ed Lasky at American Thinker   explains how Obama’s Puppet Master, unrepentant Nazi collaborator,  George Soros, enjoys the benefits of liberal hypocrisy as well as America’s misery:

The Democratic Party preaches that it is for the little guy and bashes Wall Street and bankers mercilessly. Yet it remains silent on the machinations of their patron saint, George Soros. He funds think tanks galore. He created the Center for American Progress — Obama’s think-tank and hiring hall. The CAP is an adjunct of the Democratic Party, peddling its ideas throughout the media landscape. Soros has an empire of 527 groups he uses to elect Democrats and promote their policies. He is the top funder of such shadowy groups, and his billionaire political allies (Peter Lewis, Herb and Marion Sandler — also big funders of the CAP — round up the top five). Soros was an early and ardent supporter of Barack Obama — even using a loophole in federal campaign loans to exceed normal limits on donations

Soros maintains a super secret hedge fund, the Quantum Fund which is held overseas.  As Democrats posture about how they care for the little guy, they take great care to protect Soros and his hedge fund investors:

Democrats have been major beneficiaries of hedge fund managers making donations to their party and to its politicians. Senator Chris Dodd was the number one beneficiary of their largesse until Barack Obama emerged as a presidential candidate; Obama became the ‘hedge fund candidate.

We keep hearing a lot of commotion about the need to regulate hedge funds, but very little has been done.  There is no requirement that hedge funds domiciled overseas (as is Soros’s) disclose the identities of investors.

Lasky warned in February that the next caper would be an assault on the Euro:

Some heavyweight hedge funds have launched large bearish bets against the euro in moves that are reminiscent of the trading action at the height of the U.S. financial crisis.

The big bets are emerging amid gatherings such as an exclusive ‘idea dinner ’earlier this month that included hedge-fund titans SAC Capital Advisors LP and Soros Fund Management LLC. During the dinner, hosted by a boutique investment bank at a private townhouse in Manhattan, a small group of all-star hedge-fund managers argued that the euro is likely to fall to ‘parity’ — or equal on an exchange basis — with the dollar, people close to the situation say.

Betting on the fall of the Euro creates an opportunity to make enormous amounts of money.

The Daily Mail is straightforward:

A secretive group of Wall Street hedge fund bosses are said to be behind a plot to cash in on the decline of the euro.

Representatives of George Soros’s investment business were among an all-star lineup of Wall Street investors at an ‘ideas dinner’ at a private townhouse in Manhattan, according to reports.

A spokesman for Soros Fund Management said the legendary investor did not attend the dinner on February 8, but did not deny that his firm was represented.
At the dinner, the speculators are said to have argued that the euro is likely to plunge in value to parity with the dollar.

The single currency has been under enormous pressure because of Greece’s debt crisis, plus financial worries in Portugal, Italy, Spain and Ireland.

But, it has also struggled because hedge funds have been placing huge bets on the currency’s decline, which could make the speculators hundreds of millions of pounds.

ADD THIS:

Dow Rebounds From Record 998-Point Drop

May 6, 2010

However, the Dow tumbled almost 1,000 points at one point and sources on trading desks told FOX Business that a bad trade in shares of Procter & Gamble (PG: 60.33, -0.43, -0.71%) may have been responsible for the last wave of the selling. Wall Street roared off its lows, regaining nearly 70% of the losses, despite a lack of any new developments, giving further credence to that theory. The unusual trading activity is being investigated by the Nasdaq and the New York Stock Exchange. 

“Calmer heads prevailed. The U.S. is in a much better place than the rest of the world,” said Brian Belski, chief investment strategist at Oppenheimer. “This is what capitulation feels like.

Regardless, the Dow still posted its steepest percentage drop since April 2009 and largest point drop since Feb. 2009 amid growing fears that Greece’s debt crisis will spread to other high-debt European nations like Portugal and Spain. Underscoring the volatility on Wall Street, the VIX, or so-called fear gauge, surged by 32%, it’s biggest jump since the aftermath of the Lehman Brothers implosion in Sept. 2008.

“The market went into a panic. No one made markets. You had all the machines trying to [sell] things into an abyss,” said Peter Boockvar, equity strategist at Miller Tabak.

At their lows, the blue chips were on track for their point decline in history, exceeding the 777-point drop in 2008 when the House of Representatives voted down the TARP bailout resolution. 

 In addition to global worries that have weighed on U.S. markets, stocks were hurt by weaker-than-expected same-store sales reports from a number of retailers, including Target (TGT: 54.25, -0.67, -1.22%), Gap (GPS: 22.25, -0.63, -2.75%) and Aeropostale (ARO: 27.27, -0.4, -1.45%).

All 30 blue-chip stocks lost ground, led by General Electric (GE: 16.87, -0.47, -2.71%), Bank of America (BAC: 16.18, -0.09, -0.55%) and Hewlett-Packard (HPQ: 46.67, -1.7, -3.51%). The index’s best performers were McDonald’s (MCD: 68.03, -1.27, -1.83%) and Travelers (TRV: 49.3, -0.48, -0.96%), each of which still closed more than 1% lower. 

The Dow has tumbled 631.5 points, or 5.66%, over the past three sessions, its largest three-day percentage drop since March 2009 and first three-day decline of any kind since late January. 

It’s unclear how much of the selloff can be chalked up to the mysterious drop in shares of Procter & Gamble (PG: 60.33, -0.43, -0.71%), which was down as much as 33% at one point, representing a loss of about $60 billion of its total value. A drop of that size would immediately drive about 150 points from the Dow and in turn trigger program trading for sell orders. 

P&G said it doesn’t know what caused the sudden dive and the New York Stock Exchange said it is investigating. The Securities and Exchange Commission declined to comment. Citigroup said it has “no evidence” at this point that it was involved in any erroneous transaction.

Even before the potential bad trade, Wall Street’s global jitters grew as traders were glued to television images of the protests outside the Greek parliament, which signed off on new austerity measures that clear the path for a $141 billion rescue. The protests underscore worries in the markets that Greece and other European nations will fail to have the political will to go through with the painful budget cuts amid civil unrest. Three protesters died on Wednesday during the growing violence. 

U.S. markets were already reeling before the protests as the euro continued its steep decent. European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet said the bank hasn’t talked about buying government bonds, a move some have suggested could stop the crisis. 

Moody’s warned on Thursday that severe contagion to the financial systems in southern Europe could “become a common theme.” The markets have expressed fear that the Greek bailout won’t be able to prevent the crisis from spreading to larger euro zone members that would require much larger rescues. Credit default spreads, which measure the cost to insure debt, widened on Spain, Portugal and Greece, underscoring continued fear. 

The euro plunged 1.58% to $1.2619 as cash fled to the relative safety of the U.S. dollar. The stronger greenback sparked a wave of selling in commodities and multinationals. Crude tumbled to a fresh 11-week low, losing $2.86 a barrel, or 3.58%, to $7 down as much as $22.79 at one point.

The debt woes also rattled the bond markets as the yield on the ten-year note fell to its lowest level since Dec. 2009 amid the flight to safety. Bond prices experienced heavy volatility, mirroring the action on Wall Street. 

“In my 25 years in the business I have never seen bonds have that type of move in a 20-minute period,” said Tom Digaloma, head of bond trading at Guggenheim Securities.

Market Plunge Baffles Wall Street

The Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission said they were working with other regulators to review “unusual trading activity.” The major U.S. stock exchanges said they were looking for trading glitches and examining potentially erroneous trades in multiple stocks. Major exchanges said they will cancel erroneous trades that occurred during the selloff.

Multiple stocks, ranging from Accenture PLC to Boston Beer Co., momentarily lost nearly 100% of their value, changing hands for just one penny. Exchange-traded funds, which are index funds that trade like stocks on exchanges, were also temporarily vaporized. The $9.5 billion iShares Russell 1000 Value Index Fund went from $59 to around 8 cents in the blink of an eye.

“It happened so quickly, it was like a torpedo,” said Scott Redler, chief strategic officer at T3 Capital Management, a hedge fund. “It was mayhem.”

Unnerved traders frantically searched for an explanation, scouring the trade blotters for clues to the cause. Many pinned the blame on an erroneous trade for a basket of stocks which caused shares for companies such as Procter & Gamble Co., one of the market’s most stable blue-chip stocks, to fall 35% in two minutes.

The market was already down some 500 points when the selloff began. Televisions showed images of standoffs between Greek police and protesters, and the European Central Bank declined to step up its effort to stabilize government debt markets.

The Proteus Fund: Donor Money In; Out to Designated Causes. Money Laundering or Hidden agenda?

 

Proteus: Two definitions

#1: A genus of gram-negative, motile bacteria, members of the family Enterobacteriaceae, usually found in fecal and other putrefying matter.

Proteus species are notorious in medical microbiological laboratories because of their rapid swarming growth on commonly used agar plates.

#2:

The German mystical alchemist Heinrich Khunrath (1560–1605) wrote of the shape-changing sea-god who, because of his relationship to the sea, is both a symbol of the unconscious as well as the perfection of the art.

From his transforming nature, and multifarious aspects comes our adjective “protean”. A “protean career” would embrace many human concerns.

Shakespeare uses the image of Proteus to establish the character of his great royal villain Richard III in the play Henry VI, Part Three, the prequel to his play Richard III. In Act III, Scene ii, Richard (not yet the king), boasts:

I can add colors to the chameleon,
Change shapes with Proteus for advantages,
And set the murderous Machiavel to school.
Can I do this, and cannot get a crown?
Tut, were it farther off, I’ll pluck it down.

From Discover the Networks:

Founded in 1995, the Proteus Fund is set up not as a traditional foundation, but as a public charity. It takes money from donors who specify the precise groups and causes for which they want it earmarked, and in turn funnels the cash (minus a handling fee) to those recipients; this arrangement enables the donors to avoid (if they wish) being publicly associated with the groups being funded, which in many cases are extremely radical. Such transactions are called donor-advised funds.

Through this legal loophole, nonprofit entities can set up for-profit organizations and funnel money to them through PDF, since, by law, non-profits are not legally allowed to directly fund their own for-profit enterprises. Margaret Gage, who founded the Peace Development Fund in 1981, is the Proteus Fund’s President and Executive Director.

The Proteus Fund’s Board of Directors is composed of members who are affiliated with numerous leftist causes and organizations. For example, Tom Asher founded the Media Access Project and sits on the Board of the Center for Responsive Politics. Donna Edwards of the Arca Foundation founded the National Network to End Domestic Violence. Mike Lux of Progressive Strategies LLC, a political consulting firm, served as Senior Vice President for Political Action at People for the American Way. Labor and political organizer Cecile Richards is the senior advisor to Nancy Pelosi and sits on the Directors’ Boards of Progressive Majority, the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League (NARAL), and the national Planned Parenthood Action Fund. Byron Rushing, a member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, is a South Africa rights activist and a Board member of the CarEth Foundation and Grassroots International. Frank Sanchez of the Needmor Fund co-founded the Chicano Youth Association in 1969 and institutionalized bilingual education in American schools. Selena Singleton of the TransAfrica Forum is an attorney who represents minorities in matters pertaining to civil rights, environmental justice, and housing segregation; she also serves with the International Women’s Democracy Center. Janet Shenk of the AFL-CIO is a longtime human rights activist and sits on the Board of the Arca Foundation. Margery Tabankin of Tabankin Associates is the director of the Streisand Foundation and Steven Spielberg‘s Righteous Persons Foundation. Robert Zevin of Zevin Associates was a founder or Board member of such leftist groups as Resist, Affirmative Investments, and the Tax Equity Alliance of Massachusetts. Dini Merz is a Program Director of the Proteus Fund’s Peace and Security program and of the CarEth Foundation, which is an arm of the Proteus Fund.

The Proteus Fund has several major grantmaking arms. Among these are the following:

1) The Piper Fund strongly supports campaign finance reform. Regarding money as the root of all evil in democratic politics, this Fund gave $5 million from 1999-2003 to lobbying organizations and researchers dedicated to bringing about such reform. The Piper Fund is financed by the Arca Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Joyce Foundation, the McKay Foundation, the Nathan Cummings Foundation, the Solidago Foundation, the Stern Family Fund, the Columbia Foundation, the Changing Horizons Fund, the Open Society Institute(George Soros), the Ford Foundation, the Schumann Center for Media and Democracy, the Tides Foundation, the Jenifer Altman Foundation, the Compton Foundation, the Educational Foundation of America, the JEHT Foundation, the Lear Family Foundation, Working Assets, Funding Exchange, and many more.

2) The State Strategies Fund (SSF) is a collaborative grantmaking initiative supporting state-level programs to increase minorities’ participation in political life, and to promote the passage of leftist legislative agendas and the election of leftist political leaders. This Fund pursues a multi-issue agenda that includes union organizing, LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) advocacy, civil rights, community organizing, economic justice, women’s groups, and environmentalist coalitions. Between 1999 and 2003, SSF gave more than $2 million to multiple state coalitions promoting campaign finance reform, “fair tax policy,” taxpayer-funded health care, and environmental extremism. It is funded by the Ford Foundation, the Nathan Cummings Foundation, the Open Society Institute, the Unitarian Universalist Veatch Program, the Educational Foundation of America, and the Carnegie Corporation of New York.

3) The Colombe Foundation seeks to create a more peaceful world through changes in American policy. These include the elimination of weapons of mass destruction, and a reduction in military spending accompanied by increased funding for social welfare programs and conflict-resolution initiatives.

4) The Media Action Fund (MAF) uses aggressive advertising campaigns to promote leftist agendas. Between 2000 and 2004, for example, MAF gave more than $2 million to organizations that advocate radical environmental activism. Among MAF’s grantees are the Clean Water Fund; the Montana Conservation Voters Education Fund; the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance; the Rocky Mountain Energy Campaign; the Western Organization of Resource Councils; the Conservation Law Foundation; the Container Recycling Institute; Dakota Rural Action; Earth Day Network; the Partnership Project; the South Dakota Resources Protection Fund U.S.  Public Interest Research Group; ; the Conservation Law Foundation; Forest Ethics; Friends of Blackwater Canyon; LocalMotion; the Missouri Coalition for the Environment; the North Carolina Waste Awareness & Reduction Network; the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition; and the Sierra Club.

5) The Security Policy Working Group (SPWG) seeks to “broaden and deepen the public discourse on what constitutes true security in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.”  SPWG emphasizes “multilateral, cooperative approaches that lessen the need for, and use of, military force.” One SPWG member, an MIT research scientist, contends that “the Bush Administration has placed too much of its emphasis and budget on military solutions to the challenges of mass casualty terrorism.”

In addition to the aforementioned groups, the list of Proteus Fund grantees also includes, among many others, the Tides Center and Tides Foundation; Public Citizen; the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now(ACORN); the CarEth Foundation; the Proteus Action Council; the Lear Family Foundation; the Progressive America Fund; the Center for a New American Dream; the Center for Community Change; Class Action; the Peace Development Fund; the Women’s Empowerment Network; the Spirit Rock Meditation Center; the Public Justice Foundation; MADRE; the Nonviolent Peaceforce; Coalition for DC Representation Education Fund; the Middle East Research and Information Project (MERIP); the Natural Resources Defense Council; the Environmental Media Services; the Environmental Coalition; the Citizen Action Fund; the Rock the Vote Education Fund; the Committee for Inter-American Human Rights; the Progressive Alliance for Community Empowerment; the Public Action Foundation; Protestants for the Common Good; the Center for Peace and Justice; and the Progressive Coalition.

George Soros: Billionaire “I fancied myself as some kind of god or an economic reformer like Keynes”

 

The following are excerpts from a backgrounder paper on George Soros written in 2004.  Read the entire file at: http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/Articles/SOROS,%20GEORGE%20BACKGROUNDER1.htm

GEORGE SOROS BACKGROUNDER

 

 October 2004

Strange Quotes

 

Soros: “I Fancied Myself As Some Kind Of God.”  “A passage in his book The Alchemy of Finance, published in 1987, distinguishes Soros from all other financiers, ever.  ‘I have always harboured an exaggerated view of my self-importance,’ he wrote.  ‘To put it bluntly, I fancied myself as some kind of god or an economic reformer like Keynes, or, even better, like Einstein.  My sense of reality was strong enough to make me realise that these expectations were excessive, and I kept them hidden as a guilty secret.  This was a source of considerable unhappiness through much of my adult life.  As I made my way in the world, reality came close enough to my fantasy to allow me to admit my secret, at least to myself.  Needless to say, I feel much happier as a result.’”  (Stephen Fay, “Profile: George Soros: God Of All He Surveys,” The Independent [London], 5/17/98)

Soros Admits To Delusions “Of Grandeur” And Said That His “Goal Is To Become The Conscience Of The World.”  “He [Soros] admits to what Kaufman calls ‘messianic’ ideals: ‘I have had these illusions, or perhaps delusions, of grandeur and they have driven me.’  He has also said that his ‘goal is to become the conscience of the world.’”  (Anthony Gottlieb, “Who Wants To Be A Billionaire?” The New York Times, 3/3/02)

Soros: “So That’s What I’m All About.  I Am A Kind Of Nut Who Wants To Have An Impact.”  (Michael T. Kaufman, Soros: The Life And Times Of A Messianic Billionaire, 2002, p. 293)

Soros Wrote That September 11th Terrorist Attacks “Could Not Have Been More Spectacular.”  “Hijacking fully fueled airliners and using them as suicide bombs was an audacious idea, and its execution could not have been more spectacular.”  (George Soros, “The Bubble Of American Supremacy,” The Atlantic Monthly, 12/03) 

From Soros’  Book, “The Bubble Of American Supremacy”

Proposes Cutting Defense In Favor Of Increased Foreign Aid, Domestic Spending.  “An alternative U.S. foreign policy would differ from the present one in much more than being multilateral rather than unilateral.  It would involve a radical reordering of our priorities.  Instead of devoting the bulk of the budget to military expenditures to implement the Bush doctrine, we would engage in preventive actions of a constructive nature.  This would require incomparably smaller budgetary expenditures, leaving room for greater domestic spending within a balanced budget.  After all, it would be unacceptable to increase foreign aid without a comparable improvement in social benefits at home.”  (George Soros, The Bubble Of American Supremacy, 2004, pp. 123-124)     

Supports New Arms Control Agreement.  “At present we spend almost as much on defense as do all the other countries in the world combined.  We are way ahead of them in technology.  Naturally they try to catch up with us the best they can, so we keep on pushing ahead on technology in order to maintain our superiority.  This is an arms race between unequals that could be slowed down by international agreement. … We are in a position to dictate the terms that would satisfy us.  We are prevented from doing so only by our own attitude: Nothing would satisfy us, because under the influence of extremists, we are opposed to the process.”  (George Soros, The Bubble Of American Supremacy, 2004, pp. 174-175)

Soros Supports Assisted Suicide Laws

 

“Mr. Soros Provided $15 Million For The Death In America Project, Which Supports Euthanasia.”  (Toni Marshall, “Enigmatic Billionaire,” The Washington Times, 11/9/97)

“Billionaire George Soros Has Contributed $250,000 To Retain Oregon’s Assisted Suicide Law …”  (Corky Siemaszko, “Dave’s Top Cop Leads Houston Ballot,” [New York] Daily News, 11/4/97)

ü      In 1995, “Soros Voiced Disapproval Of His Father’s Reluctance To Die.”  “In an interview with the New Yorker in 1995, Mr. Soros voiced disapproval of his father’s reluctance to die, even though he was gravely ill.  ‘My father unfortunately wanted to live … and I was kind of disappointed in him. … I wrote him off,’ he said.”  (Toni Marshall, “Enigmatic Billionaire,” The Washington Times, 11/9/97)

Soros Supports Reducing Us Sovereignty

 

Soros Has Argued “The Sovereignty Of States Must Be Subordinated To International Law And International Institutions.”  “Soros identifies a problem: ‘Our global open society lacks the institutions and mechanisms necessary for its preservation.’  The solution?  ‘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)

“In The Crisis Of Global Capitalism (1998) And Open Society (2000), [Soros] Argued That A Vision Of ‘Open Society Idealism’ Must Supersede Traditional State Sovereignty If Globalization Is To Benefit All.”  (Carlin Romano, “George Soros Offers A Plan To Help Poor Via Globalization,” The Philadelphia Inquirer, 3/24/02)

Soros’ Business Dealings

 

In December 2002, Soros Was Convicted Of Insider Trading In France And Fined $2.3 Million.  “After a 14-year investigation, a French court today convicted the American financier George Soros of insider trading and fined him 2.2 million euros ($2.3 million), the amount prosecutors said he had profited from the trading.  Mr. Soros, who was not present in the courtroom, called the verdict unfounded and said he would appeal.”  (John Tagliabue, “Soros Is Found Guilty In France On Charges Of Insider Trading,” The New York Times, 12/21/02)

Soros Has Been Accused Of “Destabilizing World Currencies And Wrecking The Economies Of Nations.”  “George Soros is one of the most successful investors of all time. Even now, though he manages little or no money besides his own, he can move markets with a ten-minute appearance on cable television.  Detractors have accused him of destabilizing world currencies and wrecking the economies of entire nations.  He is appealing a French conviction for insider trading.”  (Mark Gimein, “George Soros Is Mad As Hell,” Fortune, 10/27/03)

Soros Has Been Known As the “Man Who Broke The Bank Of England.”  “George Soros got the first part right.  As a detached and mysterious currency speculator, he made billions by moving markets in a manner that made him a whipping boy for besieged bankers and ministers.  In one famous week in 1992, he made $1 billion betting against the British pound, earning him the grudging title of the Man Who Broke the Bank of England.”  (William Shawcross, “Turning Dollars Into Change,” Time, 9/1/97)

Soros Is “Widely Blamed In Thailand For Triggering The Collapse Of The Economy In 1997.”  “Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, meanwhile, reiterated his ban on foreign NGOs travelling to Thailand for the duration of the meeting.  The Prime Minister stressed that he had clearly announced that Thailand had the names of all NGOs known to organize protests during international meetings, stating that they would not be welcome in Thailand during the Summit period.  The Prime Minister also personally picked out US financier George Soros – widely blamed in Thailand for triggering the collapse of the economy in 1997 – as an alleged backer of NGOs.”  (“All Involved Stand Ready To Host APEC Meeting,” Thai Press Reports, 10/14/03)

Soros Contributions To Liberal Soft Money Groups

Soros Is Largest Donor To Democrat 527 Groups, Contributing A Total Of $18.5 Million.  “By mid-August, Mr. Soros had given more than $15 million to advocacy groups like America Coming Together.  At that time, he said in an interview on Monday, he fully expected Mr. Kerry to win the election.  But recently, Mr. Soros saw what he called the outrageous and slanderous Swift boat commercials against Mr. Kerry and how they had damaged his standing in the polls.  Since then, the Hungarian-born Mr. Soros said, he has become so worried that Mr. Bush will win the election that he increased his giving, to $18.2 million, and has scrapped a trip in October to Russia to work against the president’s re-election. … Mr. Soros, whose $7.2 billion fortune makes him the 24th richest person in the United States, has become the biggest donor to the 527 advocacy groups, a category named for the section of the tax code that covers them.  He pledged $10 million to America Coming Together for a registration and get-out-the-vote drive, but gave a total of $14.5 million.  His other contributions to Democratic 527’s are $2.5 million to MoveOn.org Voter Fund; $325,000 to Young Voter Alliance; $325,000 to 21st Century Democrats; $300,000 to the Real Economy Group; and $250,000 to Democracy for America.”  (Katharine Q. Seelye, “Anti-Bush Billionaire Plans To Give More,” The New York Times, 9/29/04)

Since 1999, Soros has contributed $205,750 To National Democrat Party Committees, Including $7,750 To DNC, $83,000 To DSCC And $115,000 To DCCC.  (Center For Responsive Politics Website, www.opensecrets.org, Accessed 12/10/03)

Soros: “I’ve Come To The Conclusion … That One Can Do A Lot More About The Issues I Care About By Changing The Government Than By Pushing The Issues.”  “‘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)

 

Soros Initially Pledged $15.5 Million In Soft Money To Liberal Activist Groups, Including $10 Million To America Coming Together, $3 Million To The Center For American Progress And $2.5 Million To MoveOn.org.  “Soros, who has financed efforts to promote open societies in more than 50 countries around the world, is bringing the fight home, he said.  On Monday, he and a partner committed up to $5 million to MoveOn.org, a liberal activist group, bringing to $15.5 million the total of his personal contributions to oust Bush. … Standing on the back deck, the evening sun angling into their eyes, Soros took aside Steve Rosenthal, CEO of the liberal activist group America Coming Together (ACT), and Ellen Malcolm, its president.  They were proposing to mobilize voters in 17 battleground states.  Soros told them he would give ACT $10 million. … Soros also promised up to $3 million to Podesta’s new think tank, the Center for American Progress.”  (Laura Blumenfeld, “Soros’s Deep Pockets Vs. Bush,” The Washington Post, 11/11/03)

SOROS & THE CENTER FOR AMERICAN PROGRESS

 

Soros Contributed $3 Million To John Podesta’s New Think Tank, The Center For American Progress.  “Soros also promised up to $3 million to Podesta’s new think tank, the Center for American Progress.  Soros will continue to recruit wealthy donors for his campaign.  Having put a lot of money into the war of ideas around the world, he has learned that ‘money buys talent; you can advocate more effectively.’”  (Laura Blumenfeld, “Soros’s Deep Pockets Vs. Bush,” The Washington Post, 11/11/03)

The Center For American Progress Has A 501(c) 3 Think Tank Component And A 501(c) 4 “Rapid Response And Communications Operation That Will Dabble More Heavily In Campaign Politics” – Both Of Which Can Collect Unlimited Contributions With No Disclosure.  “The organizational structure is split into two components: a 501(c)3 think tank and a 501(c)4 rapid response and communications operation that will dabble more heavily in campaign politics.  Both divisions are referred to by their designation within Internal Revenue Service tax code.  Fundraising for the 501(c)3 is already in full swing while the 501(c)4 money-gathering has just begun, according to Laura Nichols, former communications director for Rep. Richard Gephardt (D-Mo.) and now senior vice president of CAP.  Both entities can accept unlimited donations and do not have to reveal their donors.”  (Chris Cillizza, “Clark To Keynote Forum For Podesta Group,” Roll Call, 9/30/03)

George Soros and the Shadow Party:

http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/viewSubCategory.asp?id=589

 

In December of 2006, Soros met with Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama in his (Soros’) New York office. Soros had previously hosted a fund-raiser for Obama during the latter’s 2004 campaign for the Senate.

On January 16, 2007, Obama announced the creation of a presidential exploratory committee, and within hours Soros sent the senator a contribution of $2,100, the maximum amount allowable under campaign finance laws. Later that week the New York Daily News reported that Soros would back Obama over Senator Hillary Clinton, whom he had supported in the past. Soros’ announcement was seen as a repudiation of Clinton’s presidential aspirations, though Soros said he would support the New York senator were she to win the Democratic nomination.

===============================

Soros and the Open Society:

 

How many people, for instance, know that James Hansen, a man billed as a lonely “NASA whistleblower” standing up to the mighty U.S. government, was really funded by Soros’ Open Society Institute , which gave him “legal and media advice”?

That’s right, Hansen was packaged for the media by Soros’ flagship “philanthropy,” by as much as $720,000, most likely under the OSI’s “politicization of science” program.

That may have meant that Hansen had media flacks help him get on the evening news to push his agenda and lawyers pressuring officials to let him spout his supposedly “censored” spiel for weeks in the name of advancing the global warming agenda.

Hansen even succeeded, with public pressure from his nightly news performances, in forcing NASA to change its media policies to his advantage. Had Hansen’s OSI-funding been known, the public might have viewed the whole production differently. The outcome could have been different.

That’s not the only case. Didn’t the mainstream media report that 2006’s vast immigration rallies across the country began as a spontaneous uprising of 2 million angry Mexican-flag waving illegal immigrants demanding U.S. citizenship in Los Angeles, egged on only by a local Spanish-language radio announcer?

Turns out that wasn’t what happened, either. Soros’ OSI had money-muscle there, too, through its $17 million Justice Fund. The fund lists 19 projects in 2006. One was vaguely described involvement in the immigration rallies. Another project funded illegal immigrant activist groups for subsequent court cases.

So what looked like a wildfire grassroots movement really was a manipulation from OSI’s glassy Manhattan offices. The public had no way of knowing until the release of OSI’s 2006 annual report.

Meanwhile, OSI cash backed terrorist-friendly court rulings, too.

Do people know last year’s Supreme Court ruling abolishing special military commissions for terrorists at Guantanamo was a Soros project? OSI gave support to Georgetown lawyers in 2006 to win Hamdan v. Rumsfeld — for the terrorists.

OSI also gave cash to other radicals who pressured the Transportation Security Administration to scrap a program called “Secure Flight,” which matched flight passenger lists with terrorist names. It gave more cash to other left-wing lawyers who persuaded a Texas judge to block cell phone tracking of terrorists.

They trumpeted this as a victory for civil liberties. Feel safer?

It’s all part of the $74 million OSI spent on “U.S. Programs” in 2006 to “shape policy.” Who knows what revelations 2007’s report will bring around events now in the news?

OSI isn’t the only secretive organization that Soros funds. OSI partners with the Tides Foundation, which funnels cash from wealthy donors who may not want it known that their cash goes to fringe groups engaged in “direct action” — also known as eco-terrorism.

On the political front, Soros has a great influence in a secretive organization called “Democracy Alliance” whose idea of democracy seems to be government controlled solely of Democrats.

“As with everything about the Democracy Alliance, the strangest aspect of this entire process was the incessant secrecy. Among the alliance’s stated values was a commitment to political transparency — as long as it didn’t apply to the alliance,” wrote Matt Bai, describing how the alliance was formed in 2005, in his book “The Argument: Billionaires, Bloggers and the Battle to Remake Democratic Politics.”

Soros’ “shaping public policies,” as OSI calls it, is not illegal. But it’s a problem for democracy because it drives issues with cash and then only lets the public know about it after it’s old news.

Money Chooses Sides

In a barn-burning, record-smashing fund-raising campaign season, Barack Obama tapped a new breed of Manhattan donors and won the expectations game

The investment banker Robert Wolf first met Barack Obama one afternoon in December in a midtown conference room. Obama was in town to deliver a speech at a charity dinner for children in poverty at the Mandarin Oriental—but also to pursue another, less high-minded, but more momentous, objective: to begin the process of attempting to pick Hillary Clinton’s pocket.

The conference room belonged to George Soros, the billionaire bête noire of the right. After talking to Soros for an hour about his prospective bid for the White House, Obama walked down the hall and found assembled a dozen of the city’s heaviest-hitting Democratic fund-raisers: investment banker Hassan Nemazee, Wall Street power Blair Effron, private-equity hotshot Mark Gallogly, hedge-fund manager Orin Kramer. Most had been big-time John Kerry backers in 2004. Most had a connection to the Clintons. All were officially uncommitted for 2008.

Comparatively speaking, Wolf, now the CEO of UBS Americas, was a buck-raking neophyte. But his prodigious recent efforts (first for Kerry, then for House and Senate Democrats in 2006) had established him as a rising star in the fund-raising firmament. Until a few weeks earlier, the presidential horse he’d planned to ride in 2008 was former Virginia governor Mark Warner. But with Warner’s decision to forgo the race, Wolf was up for grabs—and in the sights of every Democrat in the field.

What Wolf, 45, was looking for was a candidate who could change the tenor of our politics.

A story in the Times reported that Obama had nailed two A-list New York donors: Soros and Wolf. But though Soros’s backing was a symbolic coup, it’s Wolf who has emerged as Obama’s most copious cash collector in the city so far—hosting two high-dollar cocktail parties, making countless calls, harvesting more than $500,000.

Rashad Hussain…Obama’s Envoy to the Muslim World: A Soros Tie? Plus Soros Ties to Petrobas and Green Initiative

 

Ed Lasky at American Thinker writes:

March 1, 2010

The naming of Rashad Hussain as President Obama’s new special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference has sparked criticism. Hussain has been close to the President and was recruited to help draft Barack Obama’s Cairo address (hat tip: Joel Sprayragen), widely criticized as whitewashing and distorting Islamic history to bolster Barack Obama’s standing in the Muslim world. The address also was criticized for slighting Israel and for depicting its founding as a consequence of Western guilt over the Holocaust — giving short shrift to the Jewish people’s long tie to the Holy Land (pre-dating the rise of Islam).

Hussain also was caught fabricating his own personal history. When he was accused of having made statements critical of the American prosecution against Sami Al-Arian a few years ago at a Muslim conference, he denied having made the statements attributed to him . When an audiotape surfaced revealing that he did make these statements, he was forced to backtrack. He had also arranged for the magazine that had covered the event to scrub the record of his having made them. In other words, he whitewashed his own history.

Now it appears things grow a bit murkier.

The Washington Post published an article  on his ascent that charts how he came to the White House in the first place. He was recruited to the White house counsel’s office by Cassandra Butts — a classmate of Barack Obama’s at Harvard Law School.

Who is Cassandra Butts?

She as an alumna for the left-wing think tank Center for American Progress (one of many staffing the Obama administration). This organization is an ideas factory for the Obama administration and its hiring hall. It just took on Van Jones, for example. The Center for American Progress was created and funded by George Soros.

Soros has long been highly critical of Israel and has worked over the years to disrupt the ties between America and Israel. His overseas-domiciled hedge fund may have Arab oil petrocats as investors. Now it appears that one of his former employees paved the way for Hussain to become America’s envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference.

======================================

One pay back for Soros by the President, was the $ 2 Billion pledge to Brazil’s Petrobras’s off-shore drilling and this could go to $ 10 Billion. (Soros had just taken out a large stake of preferred stock in it). At a time when our economy is struggling with high unemployment and deficits and the nation still energy dependent, you would think this one act would have resulted in a deafening condemnation from the public, political leaders, and responsible news media.

 

Obama to give Petrobas money to Drill offshore in Brazil

Brazilian State run company Petrobas has be given a preliminary commitment letter from The Transnationalist Totalitarian Progressive regime of Barack Hussein Obama, for a $2 Billion loan. They are being giving this to drill offshore Brazil, not here in America. What makes it worse is that Petrobas is owned by the Brazilian Government.

The U.S. is going to lend billions of dollars to Brazil’s state-owned oil company, Petrobras, to finance exploration of the huge offshore discovery in Brazil’s Tupi oil field in the Santos Basin near Rio de Janeiro. Brazil’s planning minister confirmed that White House National Security Adviser James Jones met this month with Brazilian officials to talk about the loan.

 

The U.S. Export-Import Bank tells us it has issued a “preliminary commitment” letter to Petrobras in the amount of $2 billion and has discussed with Brazil the possibility of increasing that amount. Ex-Im Bank says it has not decided whether the money will come in the form of a direct loan or loan guarantees. Either way, this corporate foreign aid may strike some readers as odd, given that the U.S. Treasury seems desperate for cash and Petrobras is one of the largest corporations in the Americas.

 

But look on the bright side. If President Obama has embraced offshore drilling in Brazil, why not in the old U.S.A.? The land of the sorta free and the home of the heavily indebted has enormous offshore oil deposits, and last year ahead of the November elections, with gasoline at $4 a gallon, Congress let a ban on offshore drilling expire.

Read the rest.

What makes it even more wrong is that Neo-Stalinist, George Soros owns stakes in Petrobras.  Soros is one of the leaders of the Transnational Progressive Movement and has spent Millions to have Progressives elected. This another example of the Progressive Wall Street Mafia making money off the government.

========================================

Van Jones has just been hired at the Center for American progress to push the Green Initiative

Billionaire hedge fund manager George Soros recently spoke up on climate change financing.

According the The Wall Street Journal, billionaire hedge fund manager and political activist George Soros is pushing for a $100 billion “Green” fund to be financed by special drawing rights (SDRs). Created by the IMF in 1969, SDRs are what The New York Times called a “virtual currency.” They are the based on a basket of four key international currencies, and are normally used as a source of liquidity. Soros suggested the funds could be put to work planting new forests, expanding farming methods, and helping with adaption and energy programs in poor countries.

Back in October, Soros announced plans to invest $1 billion of his own capital in clean energy. He told Bloomberg that the investments “should be profitable but should also actually make a contribution to solving the problem.”

Is Soros fantasizing to be KING of the world?  Obama to be his Prince?

George Soros, the Democrats, and the Little Guy

 

George Soros has been the financial puppeteer of the (Progressive)Democratic Party for years.  The Shadow Party, the Center for American Progress, the funding of the Rose Revolution in Georgia (Russia), the funding of 527’s like Media Matters, Moveon.org, et.al should make Americans wonder what Soros is actually trying to accomplish.

I wrote about the Geithner/Soros/Dodd/Obama connection back in April of 2009:

The Geithner/Soros/Obama Connection..And The Dodd/Soros/Obama Connection…

George Soros, the Democrats, and the Little Guy

February 26, 2010

In the case of George Soros, the rich really do get richer while the poor get poorer. Let me count the ways hedge fund billionaire has enriched himself through his trading “strategies.” Years ago, he broke the Bank of England by wagering against the British pound — pressuring it in such a way that the England had to devalue the pound. His first billion-dollar payday. Various ploys over the years enriched him further. Then he made billions by wagering that the housing and mortgage markets would collapse in America. A multi-billion dollar payoff again. Caching. Now he is up to his old tricks again: working with other hedge funds to force the euro to crack.

Some heavyweight hedge funds have launched large bearish bets against the euro in moves that are reminiscent of the trading action at the height of the U.S. financial crisis.

The big bets are emerging amid gatherings such as an exclusive “idea dinner” earlier this month that included hedge-fund titans SAC Capital Advisors LP and Soros Fund Management LLC. During the dinner, hosted by a boutique investment bank at a private townhouse in Manhattan, a small group of all-star hedge-fund managers argued that the euro is likely to fall to “parity” — or equal on an exchange basis — with the dollar, people close to the situation say.

This is an opportunity…to make a lot of money,” says Hans Hufschmid, a former senior Salomon Brothers executive who now runs GlobeOp Financial Services SA, a hedge-fund administrator in London and New York.

It is impossible to calculate the precise effect of the elite trader’s  bearish bets, but they have added to the selling pressure on the currency-and thus to the pressure on the European Union to stem the Greek debt crisis.

These types of moves bring exacerbate problems with financial markets and the turmoil that results may enrich speculators and hedge fund managers but bring misery to millions of people.
Democrats have been major beneficiaries of hedge fund managers making donations to their party and to its politicians. Senator Chris Dodd was the number one beneficiary of their largesse until Barack Obama emerged as a presidential candidate; Obama became the hedge fund candidate.”

We heard a great deal in the campaign about the need to regulate hedge funds, but very little has been accomplished. There has been no requirement that hedge funds domiciled overseas (as is Soros’s) reveal their investors. The huge leverage hedge funds can assume is still a problem. As chairman of the House Banking Committee, Chris Dodd could have acted, but he took a pass. He is the Senator from Connecticut, where many hedge funds have offices and many managers live the good life there. Dodd is on his way out. Here is one wager I would like to make: he will, one way or another, be well-compensated in future years with money from hedge funds.

The Democratic Party preaches that it is for the little guy and bashes Wall Street and bankers mercilessly. Yet it remains silent on the machinations of their patron saint, George Soros. He funds think tanks galore. He created the Center for American Progress — Obama’s think-tank and hiring hall. The CAP is an adjunct of the Democratic Party, peddling its ideas throughout the media landscape. Soros has an empire of 527 groups he uses to elect Democrats and promote their policies. He is the top funder of such shadowy groups, and his billionaire political allies (Peter Lewis, Herb and Marion Sandler — also big funders of the CAP — round up the top five). Soros was an early and ardent supporter of Barack Obama — even using a loophole in federal campaign loans to exceed normal limits on donations.

Yet, Soros has no compunction about bringing misery to millions of people — the same people the Democrats tout they are helping.

Hang On To Your Wallets! Democrats Hidden Soros Slush Fund

Thanks to the heads up by Michelle Malkin on this one!

Democratic Platform’s Hidden Soros Slush Fund

 

[snip]

(bold emphasis mine)

Buried in the 94-page document is a noble-sounding proposal to create a “Social Investment Fund Network.” The program would provide federal money to “social entrepreneurs and leading nonprofit organizations [that] are assisting schools, lifting families out of poverty, filling health care gaps, and inspiring others to lead change in their own communities.” The Democratic Party promises to “support these results-oriented innovators” by creating an office to “coordinate government and nonprofit efforts” and then showering “a series of grants” on the chosen groups “to replicate these programs nationwide.”

In practice, this Barack Obama brainchild would serve as a permanent, taxpayer-backed pipeline to Democratic partisan outfits masquerading as public-interest do-gooders. This George Soros Slush Fund would be political payback in spades. Obama owes much of his Chicago political success to financial support from radical, left-wing billionaire and leading “social entrepreneur” Soros. In June 2004, Soros threw a big fundraiser at his New York home for Obama’s Illinois Senate campaign. Soros and family personally chipped in $60,000. In April 2007, Obama was back in New York for a deep-pocketed Manhattan fundraising soiree, with Soros lurking in his shadow.

No doubt with Soros’ approbation (if not advice from the hands-on “progressive” activist or his advisers), Obama fleshed out his Social Investment Fund Network plan last December. In concert with his mandatory volunteerism pitch and $6 billion anti-poverty plan, Obama called for the creation of a “Social Entrepreneurship Agency” to dispense the funds in unspecified amounts. The agency would be a government-supported nonprofit corporation “similar to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting,” which runs public television. (And we’ve all seen how fair and balanced that lib-dominated, Bill Moyers-boosting private-public enterprise turned out.)

Obama cites the Harlem Children’s Zone, which provides after-school activities and mentors to children in New York, as an example of a program that should be funded. (HCZ’s former senior leader Shawn Dove is now an official at Soros’ Open Society Institute.) The problem with such initiatives, as Mitchell Moss pointed out in the Manhattan Institute’s City Journal several years ago, is that these private-public partnerships formed under the guise of economic renewal often become nothing more than fronts that coordinate “an enormous safety net for social services.” Private donations give the illusion of self-help and philanthropic independence, but in reality, the “clients”are never weaned from the teat of the welfare state.

Even more troubling is how the Democratic Party/Obama plan would siphon untold millions or billions of public tax dollars into the Soros empire without taxpayer recourse. Obama promises “accountability” measures to ensure the money is spent wisely. But who would assess effectiveness of the spending? Why, experts in the social entrepreneurship community, of course. Fox, meet henhouse.

Soros has donated some $5 billion of his fortune to left-wing nonprofit groups through the Open Society Institute — an institution committed to Soros’ militant ideology of toppling the “fascist” tyranny of the United States, which he says must undergo “de-Nazification” in favor of “justice.” The mob at Obama-endorsing MoveOn, purveyors of the “General Betray Us” smear against Commanding General, MNF-I, David Petraeus, is the most notorious Soros-backed political arm. But scores of other activist nonprofits have received Soros funding under the guise of doing nonpartisan “community” or “social justice” work — and it is exactly such leftist activist groups that would be first in line for the Democratic Party/Obama’s “social investment” seed money.

Point in case: ACORN. As I’ve reported before, Obama’s old friends at the Chicago-based nonprofit now take in 40 percent of their revenues from American taxpayers. They raked in tens of millions in federal antipoverty grants while some of their operatives presided over massive voter fraud and others were implicated in corporate shakedowns and mortgage scams across the country. Soros has donated at least $150,000 to the group, according to Investor’s Business Daily, and “heads a secretive rich-man’s club called ‘Democracy Alliance’ that has doled out $20 million to activist groups like ACORN.

George Soros the “financial puppeteer” for the Obama campaign…..ACORN for the voter registrations from Mickey Mouse and DEAD people……

Is George Soros actually the “behind the scenes” director for the Obama Administration?

It seems like this might be a possibility.  Most nominations for cabinet positions by this Administration have some kind of ties to Soros or World Socialists or are avid United Nations supporters……

“Shadow Party”…….”Democracy Alliance”……both tied to George Soros.

The man that dreams of a One World Order……no borders…..no jails…….free love…..an “Open Society”

http://www.arabnews.com/?page=6&section=0&article=59371&d=22&m=2&y=2005

controls billions of dollars more in investor assets.

In 1979 Soros established the Open Society Institute (OSI), which serves as the flagship of a network of Soros foundations that donate tens of millions of dollars each year to a wide array of individuals and organizations that share the founder’s agendas. Those agendas can be summarized as follows:

  • promoting the view that America is institutionally an oppressive nation 

  • promoting the election of leftist political candidates throughout the United States 

  • opposing virtually all post-9/11 national security measures enacted by U.S. government, particularly the Patriot Act 

  • depicting American military actions as unjust, unwarranted, and immoral 

  • promoting open borders, mass immigration, and a watering down of current immigration laws 

  • promoting a dramatic expansion of social welfare programs funded by ever-escalating taxes 

  • promoting social welfare benefits and amnesty for illegal aliens 

  • defending the civil rights and liberties of suspected anti-American terrorists and their abetters 

  • financing the recruitment and training of future activist leaders of the political Left 

  • advocating America’s unilateral disarmament and/or a steep reduction in its military spending 

  • opposing the death penalty in all circumstances 

  • promoting socialized medicine in the United States 

  • promoting the tenets of radical environmentalism, whose ultimate goal, as writer Michael Berliner has explained, is “not clean air and clean water, [but] rather … the demolition of technological/industrial civilization” 

  • bringing American foreign policy under the control of the United Nations 

  • promoting racial and ethnic preferences in academia and the business world alike 

  • promoting taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand 

  • advocating stricter gun-control measures 

  • advocating the legalization of marijuana

One question for America to think about:

HOW MANY OF THE LISTED AGENDAS ABOVE HAS AMERICA HEARD OBAMA MOCK?  Will America see the Soros “agenda” come to fruition?

Time will tell……
