The Koch brothers are hated by the left for streaming millions of dollars into creating fake grass roots movements like the Tea Party, but most aren’t aware of the foreign finance billionaire pulling strings in the Democratic party in America and funneling money into leftist causes in order to shake up markets for profit and his goal of borderless globalization.
Sound a little too “Illuminati?” Hungarian-born George Soros doesn’t need a secret society, he wants to do it all himself. In the financial sector, he is so powerful that so many traders follow his moves he can bring entire economies to their knees, most famously for betting against the English Pound in 1992, resulting in a 3.4 billion pound loss to the UK Treasury, while profiting one billion pounds for himself. He played a similar role in the Asian financial crisis by short selling Thai and Malaysian currencies.
The Hungarian Jew, whose family changed their name from Schwarz to Soros due to rising anti-semitism in 1936 Hungary, had first job was delivering letters for Nazi’s in occupied Hungary. His family survived the war by purchasing documents stating they were Christians. He studied finance at the London School of Economics, returning after years in banking and finance to study Philosophy and develop the theory of Reflexivity.
“Reflexivity posited that market values are often driven by the fallible ideas of participants, not only by the economic fundamentals of the situation. Reflexive feedback loops are created where ideas influence events and events influence ideas…this leads to markets having procyclical ‘virtuous or vicious’ cycles of boom and bust, in contrast to the equilibrium predictions of more standard neoclassical economics.” -from Soros’ articles Fallibility, reflexivity, and the human uncertainty principle” and The New Paradigm for Financial Markets
After that, he used his ideas from reflexivity theory to eventually form Soros Fund Management and The Quantum Fund, a hedge fund that has brought in $40 billion since 1973. He never forgot about the one thing about Nazi Germany he liked; vanishing borders.
Soros states that he wants an “open society,” what conspiracy theorists would call a One World Government. He funnels funds through various NGOs (non-government organizations) to create his vision with great success in post-Cold War Europe, mostly directly through his Open Society Foundation NGO. Remember the Ukrainian uprising of 2014? Soros was all over that, and even has ties to the Arab Spring revolutions.
What is his role in American politics? Barack Obama’s surge to popularity in the 2008 primaries was heavily assisted by Soros NGOs, and Hillary Clinton’s Super PAC received $25 million in 2016. Now, Soros is meeting with DNC leaders such as Senate Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and Rep. Keith Ellison, who is being groomed as the next DNC chair. However, donations and strategizing with politicians isn’t all he’s been up to in the US.
As of now, he’s financing the anti-Trump protests, with some “professional protesters” being paid a $15 hourly wage. He’s almost single-handedly funded Black Lives Matters and riotous protests in Fergeson and Baltimore, resulting in a deterioration of race relations and de-policing of minority communities. His money is funneled into an NGO called Campus Progress which has empowered radical groups while focusing on suppressing free speech from moderate democrats and anyone to their right on the spectrum, creating “safe spaces” that segregate an exponential number of special groups from receiving any criticism.
His funding of revolutions isn’t because he’s a good guy or genuinely cares about the little people (as the piles of dead bodies exhibit), it’s to simultaneously create market chaos and further his ideal open society. He stops caring about these groups when he doesn’t need them anymore or they do something he doesn’t like.
La Raza, for example, was given extensive funding in 2008 trying to secure the Latino vote for Obama, but wrongly assumed Trump’s own comments on Immigration did this for free (he was wrong: Trump gained 8% of Latino voters on Hillary). More damning of his benevolent image is that he funded the radical feminist organization Femen (whose leadership can’t even agree if sex workers are feminist or not) until Femen wanted to open a chapter in Israel, then he defunded them, obviously not wanting to cause political chaos in the chosen land.
He’s also behind the current migrant crisis. Angela Merkel, his German puppet he wanted to mold Hillary Clinton after, was instructed to allow one million mostly male refugees into Germany, resulting in what has been called the “migrant rape crisis.” The most reported story was the New Years Eve mass sexual assault of 1,200 women in Cologne, Hamburg and several other cities by 2,000 men, at least half of whom were foreign nationals. German leadership has been complicit in hiding rape reports from the public. The influx of Middle Eastern and Northern African immigrants has resulted in the import of small percenages of Radical Islamists and an explosion in white nationalist hate groups.
If Soros was into democratic socialism, his NGO’s would have been behind Bernie Sanders. But Sanders wanted to get money out of politics. Sanders wanted to cut off the tentacles of financial institutions, especially foreign ones, that were manipulating the political landscape of America. Sanders wanted the US to take a lesser role in globalization. Soros knew that Clinton was the ideal choice for a figurehead to enhance his neoliberal globalist agenda.
Soros has accomplished a lot of positive philanthropy as well, but the majority of his donations are aimed at manipulating politics all around the globe. Everything he meddles with under the guise of “liberal” and “progressive” is worse off than before. The chaos makes him more money and is leaving a world in need of the rescue of international governance, or so his past leads us to assume.
So, while half of the US is in full panic over Trump, know that Soros is going to be manipulating every move the DNC makes and whoever runs against Trump in 2020 is going to be groomed by Soros, and that choice is still just an illusion.
Here’s a list of American organizations backed by Soros NGO’s, with some defunct ones used to control Democrats in 2004, 2008, and 2012 that give a clear picture of his investment in controlling progressivism in America:

The U.S. Agency for International Development under the Obama administration provided $9 million to a group supported by liberal billionaire George Soros that was then used to financially assist left-wing political activities in Albania, according to a new watchdog report.
Documents obtained by Judicial Watch show USAID pedaled the money through it’s Civil Society Project to aid Soros’ Open Society Foundations in Albania, and especially assisted the group’s attempts to provide the socialist government authority over the judiciary.
In total, $9 million was allocated for the “Justice for All” campaign, an effort overseen by Soros’ East West Management Institute, the documents reveal.
“The Obama administration quietly spent at least $9 million in U.S. taxpayers’ dollars in direct collusion with left-wing billionaire George Soros’ backing of a socialist government in Albania. It is particularly outrageous that the State Department allowed the Soros operation to help direct taxpayer funds to other groups,” Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch president, said in a statement. “George Soros is a billionaire and he shouldn’t be receiving taxpayer support to advance his radical left agenda to undermine freedom here at home and abroad.”
Included in the documents was an April 2016 memo from the U.S. Embassy in Tirana that shows the embassy “sponsored” a survey with the Open Society Foundation to evaluate Albanian citizens’ “knowledge, support, and expectations on justice reform.” According to the survey, “91% of respondents either ‘fully support’ or ‘somewhat support’ the need for judicial reform.’”
The State Department co-sponsored another poll with the Open Society Foundation regarding judicial reforms. According to records from February 2017, the U.S. Embassy’s Public Affair Section and the Open Society Foundation “each provided funding to a local organization to conduct a public opinion poll on attitudes towards the Judicial Reform effort.”
Furthermore, the State Department utilized officials from the Open Society Foundation to review applications for aid that the agency received. A report from February 2017 said, “As one of the major assistance providers in Albania, representatives from the Open Society Foundation are frequently asked to participate in technical receives of applications [sic] that we receive in funding.”
Soros’ actions in Albania have previously attracted the attention of U.S. lawmakers. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, along with five other senators, sent a letter to then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in March 2017 requesting he probe allegations that taxpayer funding was used to assist Soros’ efforts in Albania.
“Foundation Open society-Albania and its experts, with funding from USAID, have created the controversial Strategy Document for Albanian Judicial Reform,” the senators wrote in the letter. “Some leaders believe that these ‘reforms’ are ultimately aimed to give the Prime Minister and left-of-center government full control over the judiciary.”
The documents were obtained by the conservative watchdog group via a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against both the State Department and USAID. The lawsuit has since been dropped.
Judicial Watch is also investigating information related to Soros’ behavior in other countries including Macedonia, Romania, and Columbia.
The Washington Free Beacon obtained a 49-page memo from leftist operative David Brock during a January donor retreat that outlines how the George Soros-funded groups Media Matters, American Bridge, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) and Shareblue plan to undermine President Trump’s agenda and help the Democrats win control of Congress and the White House by 2020. The Trump White House, congressional Republicans and conservative media types better familiarize themselves with it, because Brock’s machine will go after them.
1. Media Matters worked with Facebook and Google to crack down on “fake news.” The memo decried the “fake news” that spread on social media as a reason why Hillary Clinton lost the election, and then went on to state something alarming: Media Matters obtained “access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites” so they can “systemically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data.”
“The earlier we can identify a fake news story, the more effectively we can quash it,” the memo states. “With this new technology at our fingertips, researchers monitoring news in real time will be able to identify the origins of a lie with mathematical precision, creating an early warning system for fake news and disinformation.”
The memo went on to state that Media Matters had a discussion with Facebook on how to crack down on fake news, including Media Matters providing the social media giant with “a detailed map of the constellation of right-wing Facebook pages that had been the biggest purveyors of fake news.” The memo also bragged that Media Matters provided Google with “the information necessary to identify 40 of the worst fake new sites” that would be prevented from using Google’s advertising network.
“Internet and social media platforms, like Google and Facebook, will no longer uncritically and without consequence host and enrich fake new sites and propagandists,” the memo chillingly reads.
2. The memo declared that Media Matterswill expose “serial misinformers and right-wing propagandists.” The memo stated that people will “weaponize” Media Matters‘ research against the Right.
“Key right-wing targets will see their influence diminish because of our work,” the memo reads.
3. The memo gloated that Media Matterswas behind Breitbart being denied a Senate press credential. The memo pledged that Media Matters would fight back against “even the slightest bit of normalization of Trump” by the media. As an example, they highlighted their fight against Breitbart:
When Breitbart applied for Permanent Senate Gallery Press Credentials, Media Matters was quick to act by advising the credentialing committee of the myriad ways that Breitbart violated their requirements. Additionally, Media Matters did something that the committee was unable to do: A deep dive study of Breitbart content, reviewing thousands of their stories to demonstrate that they do not meet the credentialing requirement for original reporting.
Ultimately, Breitbart‘s credential application was denied because they were reportedlyunable to prove they were completely independent from White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.
The memo also stated that Media Matterswas alarmed by Breitbart’s “international expansion” and they worked with journalists “to educate them on Breitbart‘s model.”
The issue here is that Media Matters seems intent on restricting Breitbart‘s media access because they don’t like Breitbart‘s point of view.
4. The memo also bragged that Media Matters was able to prevent Rupert Murdoch from expanding his media empire. In 2014, Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox attempted to purchase Time Warner, which prompted Media Matters to launch a campaign pressuring Time Warner not to accept Murdoch’s bid because it “would have given Murdoch control of 40% of the US cable market and 30% of the movie market.” Murdoch eventually rescinded his offer and the media praised Media Mattersfor their influence on the matter.
Clearly, Media Matters is committed to protecting the Left’s monopoly on the media.
5. American Bridge has a whole war room dedicated to fighting Trump. The memo explains that the war room features 20,000 hours of footage they plan to use against the Trump administration and highlighting Trump’s purported conflicts of interest.
Ultimately, American Bridge’s goal is to “defeat Trump either through impeachment or at the ballot box in 2020.”
6. The memo gloated that American Bridge partnered with former Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) to smear the Koch brothers. “Working with Senator Harry Reid and partners airing TV ads, we created a war room that leveled sustained attacks on the Koch brothers, making their negative ratings spike and turning their advocacy into a liability for candidates they supported,” the memo stated.
In other words, American Bridge worked with a high-ranking Democratic politician in order to smear private citizens who donated to political causes they didn’t like.
7. CREW aims to prevent the Trump administration from getting their agenda implemented by bogging them down with unfavorable media coverage and massive amounts of litigation. Here is an excerpt from the memo:
Trump will be affected by a steady flow of damaging information, new revelations, and an inability to avoid conflicts issues. For as long as Trump maintains the ethically untenable position of keeping his business empire in the family while serving as president, CREW will relentlessly probe his global conflicts of interest and administration ethics problems through aggressive use of research, open records requests, legal action, and FOIA litigation.
The Trump administration will be forced to defend illegal conduct in court. CREW will bring about legal accountability for executive branch ethical and legal violations through complaints and litigation. We will bring significant pressure on investigative agencies and Congress to investigate violations of law and the constitution, which appear likely to being on day one of the Trump administration, and we will litigate wrongdoing aggressively, forcing the administration to defend civil lawsuits, FOIA litigation, and whistleblower suits.
8. CREW will also seek to take down “powerful industries and interest groups” and “dark money.” More from the memo:
Powerful industries will see their influence wane. CREW will expose and curb the improper influence of powerful industries and interest groups on the administration and both parties of Congress with successful legal complaints and litigation to rein in dark money, reckless campaign finance abuses, and the misuse of nonprofits by Trump and others.
Dark money will be a political liability in key states. CREW will make the use of dark money, campaign finance violations, and ethics abuses at the state level a major issue in key states that will be the focus of massive spending and attention in the lead up to 2018 and 2020 elections.
Dark money is what’s known as money given to political nonprofits that aren’t required to disclose their donors, which protects donors from intimidation and smear campaigns from the Left.
Jeff Reynolds noted at Media Equalizerthat “it is ironic that they point to dark money as a target, as all four of these organizations are the epicenter of those very campaigns that are fueling the war against conservatives and others in America.”
9. The memo championed pro-Hillary Clinton hashtags ignited by Shareblue, which plans to be the anti-Trump attack dog on social media. The examples cited in the memo were:
The memo declared these hashtags as “narrative shifting,” which is ironic given that Clinton lost the election.
10. The memo also took pride in Shareblue’s nauseating pro-Hillary headlines. The memo cited a post titled “Hillary Clinton is one of the most ethical (and most lied about) political leaders in America” — which was apparently their most shared post in 2016 — and highlighted articles that had the following headlines:
- “I was one of the most ardent Hillary haters on the planet…until I read her emails.”
- “I published this photo of Hillary Clinton and the response was overwhelming.”
These are the kind of headlines you would expect to see in The Onion or Everyday Feminism.
11. Shareblue hopes their research will be used as a political weapon against Trump. The memo lists the group’s goals as pressuring Trump allies “to step down or change course” as well as pressuring Democrats to “take more aggressive stances against Trump.”

How George Soros Singlehandedly Created the European Refugee Crisis – And Why
George Soros is trading again.
The 85-year-old political activist and philanthropist hit the headlines post-Brexit saying the event had “unleashed” a financial-market crisis.
Well, the crisis hasn’t hit Soros just yet.
He was once again on the right side of the trade, taking a short position in troubled Deutsche Bank and betting against the S&P via a 2.1-million-share put option on the SPDR S&P 500 ETF.
More interestingly, Soros recently took out a $264 million position in Barrick Gold, whose share price has jumped over 14% since Brexit. Along with this trade, Soros has sold his positions in many of his traditional holdings.
Soros had recently announced he was coming out of retirement, again.
First retiring in 2000, the only other time Soros has publicly re-entered the markets was in 2007, when he placed a number of bearish bets on US housing and ultimately made a profit of over $1 billion from the trades.
Since the 1980s, Soros has actively been pursuing a globalist agenda; he advances this agenda through his Open Society Foundations (OSF).
What is this globalist agenda, and where does it come from?
The Humble Beginnings
The globalist seed was sowed for young George by his father, Tivadar, a Jewish lawyer who was a strong proponent of Esperanto. Esperanto is a language created in 1887 by L.L. Zamenhof, a Polish eye doctor, for the purpose of “transcending national borders” and “overcoming the natural indifference of mankind.”
Tivadar taught young George Esperanto and forced him to speak it at home. In 1936, as Hitler was hosting the Olympics in Berlin, Tivadar changed the family name from Schwartz to Soros, an Esperanto word meaning “will soar.”
George Soros, who was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary, benefited greatly from his father’s decision.
Allegedly, in 1944, 14-year-old George Soros went to work for the invading Nazis. It is said that until the end of the war in 1945, he worked with a government official, helping him confiscate property from the local Jewish population.
In an 1998 interview with 60 Minutes, Soros described the year of German occupation as “the happiest time in my life.”
Soros’s Venture into Finance
When the war ended, Soros moved to London and in 1947 enrolled in the London School of Economics where he studied under Karl Popper, the Austrian-British philosopher who was one of the first proponents of an “Open Society.”
Soros then worked at several merchant banks in London before moving to New York in 1963. In 1970, he founded Soros Fund Management and in 1973 created the Quantum Fund in partnership with investor Jim Rogers.
The fund made annual returns of over 30%, cementing Soros’s reputation and putting him in a position of power—one he utilizes to this day to advance the agenda of his mentors.
The Currency Speculations That Threw Britain and Asia into Crisis
In the 1990s, Soros began a string of large bets against national currencies. The first was in 1992, when he sold short the pound sterling and made a $1 billion profit in a single day.
His next big currency speculation came in 1997. This time Soros singled out the Thai baht and, with heavy short-selling volume, destroyed the baht’s artificial peg to the US dollar, which started the Asian financial crisis.
Today, Soros’s net worth stands at $23 billion. Since taking a back seat in his company, Soros Fund Management, in 2000, Soros has been focusing on his philanthropic efforts, which he carries out through the Open Society Foundations he founded in 1993.
So who does he donate to, and what causes does he support?
During the 1980s and 1990s, Soros used his extraordinary wealth to bankroll and fund revolutions in dozens of European nations, including Czechoslovakia, Croatia, and Yugoslavia. He achieved this by funneling money to political opposition parties, publishing houses, and independent media in these nations.
If you wonder why Soros meddled in these nations’ affairs, part of the answer may lie in the fact that during and after the chaos, he invested heavily in assets in each of the respective countries.
He then used Columbia University economist Jeffrey Sachs to advise the fledgling governments to privatize all public assets immediately, thus allowing Soros to sell the assets he had acquired during the turmoil into newly formed open markets.
Having succeeded in advancing his agenda in Europe through regime change—and profiting in the process—he soon turned his attention to the big stage, the United States.
The Big Time
In 2004, Soros stated, “I deeply believe in the values of an open society. For the past 15 years I have been focusing my efforts abroad; now I am doing it in the United States.”
Since then, Soros has been funding groups such as:
- The American Institute for Social Justice, whose aim is to “transform poor communities through lobbying for increased government spending on social programs”
- The New America Foundation, whose aim is to “influence public opinion on such topics as environmentalism and global governance”
- The Migration Policy Institute, whose aim is to “bring about an illegal immigrant resettlement policy and increase social welfare benefits for illegals”
Soros also uses his Open Society Foundations to funnel money to the progressive media outlet, Media Matters.
Soros funnels the money through a number of leftist groups, including the Tides Foundation, Center for American Progress, and the Democracy Alliance in order to circumvent the campaign finance laws he helped lobby for.
Why has Soros donated so much capital and effort to these organizations? For one simple reason: to buy political power.
Democratic politicians who go against the progressive narrative will see their funding cut and be attacked in media outlets such as Media Matters, which also directly contribute to mainstream sites such as NBC, Al Jazeera, and The New York Times.
Apart from the $5 billion Soros’s foundation has donated to groups like those cited above, he has also made huge contributions to the Democratic Party and its most prominent members, like Joe Biden, Barack Obama, and of course Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Best Friends with the Clintons
Soros’s relationship with the Clintons goes back to 1993, around the time when OSF was founded. They have become close friends, and their enduring relationship goes well beyond donor status.
According to the book, The Shadow Party, by Horowitz and Poe, at a 2004 “Take Back America” conference where Soros was speaking, the former first lady introduced him saying, “[W]e need people like George Soros, who is fearless and willing to step up when it counts.”
Soros began supporting Hillary Clinton’s current presidential run in 2013, taking a senior role in the “Ready for Hillary” group. Since then, Soros has donated over $15 million to pro-Clinton groups and Super PACs.
More recently, Soros has given more than $33 million to the Black Lives Matter group, which has been involved in outbreaks of social unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore, Maryland, in 2015. Both of these incidents contributed to a worsening of race relations across America.
The same group heavily criticized Democratic contender Bernie Sanders for his alleged track record of supporting racial inequality, helping to undercut him as a competitive threat with one of Hillary Clinton’s most ardent constituencies.
This, of course, greatly enhances the clout Soros wields through the groups mentioned above. It is safe to assume that he is now able to drive Democratic policy, especially in an administration headed by Hillary Clinton.
Simply, what Soros wants, he gets. And it’s clear from his history that he wants to smudge away national borders and create the sort of globalist nightmare represented by the European Union.
In recent years, Soros has turned his attention back to Europe. Is it a coincidence that the continent is currently in economic and social disarray?
Another Home Run: the Ukrainian Conflict
There’s no doubt about Soros’s great influence on US foreign policy. In an October 1995 PBS interview with Charlie Rose, he said, “I do now have access [to US Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott]. There is no question. We actually work together [on Eastern European policy].”
Soros’s meddling reared its ugly head again in the Russia-Ukraine conflict, which began in early 2014.
In a May 2014 interview with CNN, Soros stated he was responsible for establishing a foundation in the Ukraine that ultimately led to the overthrow of the country’s elected leader and the installation of a junta handpicked by the US State Department, at the time headed by none other than Hillary Clinton:
CNN Host: First on Ukraine, one of the things that many people recognized about you was that you during the revolutions of 1989 funded a lot of dissident activities, civil society groups in Eastern Europe and Poland, the Czech Republic. Are you doing similar things in Ukraine?
Soros: Well, I set up a foundation in Ukraine before Ukraine became independent of Russia. And the foundation has been functioning ever since and played an important part in events now.
The war that ripped through the Ukrainian region of Donbass resulted in the deaths of over 10,000 people and the displacement of over 1.4 million people. As collateral damage, a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet was shot down, killing all 298 on board.
But once again Soros was there to profit from the chaos he helped create. His prize in Ukraine was the state-owned energy monopoly Naftogaz.
Soros again had his US cronies, Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew and US consulting company McKinsey, advise the puppet government of Ukraine to privatize Naftogaz.
Although Soros’s exact stake in Naftogaz has not been disclosed, in a 2014 memo he pledged to invest up to $1 billion in Ukrainian businesses, but no other Ukrainian holdings have since been reported.
His Latest Success: the European Refugee Crisis
Soros’s agenda is fundamentally about the destruction of national borders. This has recently been shown very clearly with his funding of the European refugee crisis.
The refugee crisis has been blamed on the civil war currently raging in Syria. But did you ever wonder how all these people suddenly knew Europe would open its gates and let them in?
The refugee crisis is not a naturally occurring phenomenon. It coincided with OSF donating money to the US-based Migration Policy Institute and the Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants, both Soros-sponsored organizations. Both groups advocate the resettlement of third-world Muslims into Europe.
In 2015, a Sky News reporter found “Migrant Handbooks” on the Greek island of Lesbos. It was later revealed that the handbooks, which are written in Arabic, had been given to refugees before crossing the Mediterranean by a group called “Welcome to the EU.”
Welcome to the EU is funded by—you guessed it—the Open Society Foundations.
Soros has not only backed groups that advocate the resettlement of third-world migrants into Europe, he in fact is the architect of the “Merkel Plan.”
The Merkel Plan was created by the European Stability Initiative whose chairman Gerald Knaus is a senior fellow at none other than the Open Society Foundations.
The plan proposes that Germany should grant asylum to 500,000 Syrian refugees. It also states that Germany, along with other European nations, should agree to help Turkey, a country that’s 98% Muslim, gain visa-free travel within the EU starting in 2016.
The refugee crisis has raised huge concern in European countries like Hungary.
In response to 7,000 migrants entering Hungarian territory per day in 2015, the Hungarian government reestablished border control in order to keep the hordes of refugees from entering the country.
Of course this did not go down well with Soros and his close allies, the Clintons.
Bill Clinton has since come out and accused both Poland and Hungary of thinking “democracy is too much trouble” and wanting to have a “Putin-like authoritarian dictatorship.”
Seeing through Clinton’s comments, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán responded by saying, “The remarks made about Hungary and Poland … have a political dimension. These are not accidental slips of the tongue. And these slips or remarks have been multiplying since we are living in the era of the migrant crisis. And we all know that behind the leaders of the Democratic Party, we have to see George Soros.”
He went on to say that “although the mouth belongs to Clinton, the voice belongs to Soros.”
Soros has since said of Orbán’s policy toward the migrants: “His plan treats the protection of national borders as the objective and the refugees as an obstacle. Our plan treats the protection of refugees as the objective and national borders as the obstacle.”
It’s hard to imagine that he could be any clearer in his globalist intentions.
The Profit Motive
So why is Soros going to such lengths to flood Europe with hordes of third-world Muslims?
We can’t be sure, but it has recently come to light that Soros has taken a large series of “bearish derivative positions” against US stocks. Apparently, he thinks that causing chaos in Europe will spread the contagion to the United States, thus sending US markets spiraling downward.
The destruction of Europe through flooding it with millions of unassimilated Muslims is a direct plan to cause economic and social chaos on the Continent.
Another example of turmoil equaling profit for George Soros, who seems to have his tentacles in most geopolitical events.
We all understand correlation is not causation. However, given Soros’s extraordinary wealth, political connections, and his long track record of seeing and profiting from chaos, he is almost certainly a catalyst for much of the geopolitical turmoil now occurring.
He is intent on destroying national borders and creating a global governance structure with unlimited powers. From his comments directed toward Viktor Orbán, we can see he clearly views national leaders as his juniors, expecting them to become puppets that sell his narrative to the ignorant masses.
Soros sees himself as a missionary carrying out the globalist agenda taught to him by his early mentors. He uses his vast political connections to influence government policy and create crises, both economic and social, to further this agenda.
By all appearances, Soros is conspiring against humanity and is hell-bent on the destruction of Western democracies.
To any rational thinker, some global events just don’t make sense. Why, for example, would Western democracies take in millions of people whose values are completely incompatible with their own?
When we look closely at the agenda being actively promoted by the leading globalist puppet master, George Soros, things become a little clearer.

On Soros & Gold
While I’m not a conspiracy theorist per se, I do believe there is a naturally occurring and constant collaboration about shared interests occurring amongst the heads of governments, corporations, investment managers and all of the bottom feeders that survive off their scraps.
What I find most interesting about Soros is that he is so obvious in his intentions and persistent in their pursuit. Given the consequences of his actions, it is also clear he’s a believer in moral relativism and that the ends justify the means.
That he turns a nice buck in his crusade for what certainly rhymes with a one-world government is a Soros hallmark.
“It allows me the money needed to fund my philanthropies” he might answer to the charges he is profiting from blood in the streets he was instrumental in spilling.
Going forward when something big is happening geopolitically, I am going to start my analysis by checking under rocks for signs of Soros.
At the beginning of this article we noted that Soros has gone big into American Barrick (ABX), a leading gold producer. As of the end of March it was his single largest holding at 7.36% of his overall portfolio.
As telling, he has dumped a lot of his more conventional stocks in recent months.
Given the man’s inside track – and active manipulations – you might want to take the hint and pick up some physical gold as an insurance policy against a systematic shock.
If you already own gold, I probably wouldn’t chase it here as it has had a good run of late. Ditto silver which is up 46% year to date. But if you don’t own some, adding precious metals to your portfolio as a long-term holding, even at today’s prices, makes sense.
Per last week, I continue to believe the gold stocks have probably gotten ahead of themselves and could be in for a pretty significant correction. If so, I would be inclined to up my allocation to the sector to 20% of my total portfolio.
That said, no one can predict the future and gold could continue to power ahead, with the gold shares a more leveraged way to play the sector.
As always with gold shares, it is important to remember a few things:
- In most cases, these are speculations. That’s because their financial metrics often don’t line up with anything looking like a good value. What you are really betting on is a revaluation of the ounces of gold or silver a company is sitting on. Thus, if a company is sitting on one million ounces of gold and gold goes up by $100, the company just got a lot more valuable.
- Never fall in love with a gold stock. Set a rational return goal and once hit, at least scrape your original investment off the table. That way you are playing with the casino’s money.Also per my article last week, keep in mind that should gold stocks buck the trend in a future global equities correction, the money managers who own big positions in gold stocks will almost certainly dump their holdings in order to dress up the rest of their portfolios. As the trading volume in precious metals share is relatively thin, you want to beat them out the door.
- Embrace the volatility. The low trading volume of most of these stocks is a key reason they have such explosive upside. Any significant uptick in investor interest can send a stock soaring.However, the flipside is also true. In the bear market that started in 2011, the majority of the precious metals stocks lost upwards of 75% of their value and many simply dried up and went away. Enjoy the ride, but don’t stay too late at the party.
Earlier this week I commented to a friend that if the EU was going to remain relevant, there had to be some major financial pain dished out post-Brexit. To let that seminal event pass with nothing more than the equivalent of a global shrug would entirely change how people view the European Union.
The bottom line, I’m expecting some volatility, perhaps triggered by Soros taking a second run at crushing the British pound, the source of much of his fortune and fame.
It’s promising to be a long, hot summer.
Here Come the Clowns
Nothing comes close to the Get Out of Jail card handed by the clowns at the FBI to Hillary over her private email servers. This despite pretty much no one disputes she broke any number of federal laws of the sort which would have landed a lesser clown in jail.
To quote FBI Director James Comey, “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
There is nuance in that statement. For starters, that there is evidence of violations. But also the stark political reality that no “reasonable prosecutor” would enforce the laws, considering who the perp is: the standard bearer for the Democrats going into this election.
Besides, going after Clinton means crossing swords with Soros and no “reasonable prosecutor” would want to do that.
Chuck Schumer Has Drinks With George Soros’ Son
Cryin Chuck Schumer had drinks with left-wing billionaire, George Soros’ son, Alex Soros on Friday afternoon.
Alex Soros posted the photo to his Instagram account with the caption: ‘Always great to catch up with Senator Chuck Schumer who has seized the moment as the head of the Democrats in the Senate and masterfully helped preserve the assault on our nations values and democracy. Thank you Chuck!’
The Daily Caller reported:
Don’t let the white wine, craft cocktails, and obliterated stare fool you: Schumer has previously called for bans of powdered alcohol and college Freshman blackout sensation ‘Four Loko.’
Meanwhile, according to campaign finance records, Alex gave more than $4.5 million to Democratic campaign committees and political action committees in 2016, of which the Senate Majority PAC, the political action committee of former Senator Harry Reid, was the largest benefactor with checks totaling $3.5 million.
Of the $4.5 million, $127,800 went to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and another $133,400 to the Democratic National Committee Services Corp. Maximum campaign contributions of $5,400 were doled out by Alex to various Democratic politicians, including failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, former Senator Russ Feingold, Rep. Keith Ellison, and apparent alcohol lightweight Chuck Schumer.
Chuck Schumer is in bed with globalists who seek to destroy our nation’s sovereignty. George Soros funds violent groups such as Black Lives Matter, Antifa and Occupy Wall Street.
The comments on Alex Soros’ Instagram post were mostly negative. People were calling them ‘globalist scum’ and pointed out that George Soros funds anti-American movements etc. The American people are onto the Democrat agenda. The current Democrat party is a pro-Islam globalist cabal.
