George Soros – Enemy of the Free Market continued
George Soros “Progressive Media USA” connections.
American Axis of Evil – Friday, April 11, 2008 By Bill O’Reilly – That is the subject of this evening’s “Talking Points Memo.” According to some excellent reporting by Politico.com, a rather frightening meeting took place here in New York City two nights ago. Billionaire far-left zealot George Soros had a dinner in his Manhattan home that included Clinton confidante Paul Begala and the vicious character assassin David Brock, who runs Media Matters. Apparently, these three are starting an organization called Progressive Media USA. Now as we reported last week, a number of organizations are set up to attack John McCain, including this new Progressive Media deal. As much as $350 million could be spent vilifying McCain. I believe this is evil. There are two ironies here. First, the Swift Boat deal back in 2004 where some conservatives hammered John Kerry is the model for the Soros smear machine. And second, if not for the McCain-Feingold law, which led to the creation of these vile MoveOn type organizations, McCain might not have to deal with this garbage. Memo to everybody: Be careful what you wish for. As I wrote extensively in my book “Culture Warrior,” George Soros wants to buy America, and he is close. Years ago, Soros helped create MoveOn, and now it is a major fundraiser for Barack Obama. Hired character assassin Brock makes hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. Who pays his salary? We’ll look at this flow chart. Soros distributed big money to a variety of far-left outfits. And then the cash, some of it anyway, flows into Brock’s organization Media Matters. Things are set up this way so Soros can say he does not directly fund the vicious media site. Same thing with the new Progressive Media USA outfit. Because it’s a 501(c)(4) for non-profit group, donors can be kept secret. Thus, Soros can spend as much cash as he wants to smear McCain, and nobody will know about it. This, ladies and gentlemen, is ultra-dangerous. Most Americans have no idea who Soros or Brock are. They will only know what they see on TV, smear stuff against McCain. And the pipeline extends directly to NBC News, which will publicize every piece of slime Brock can create. Only one word describes this: despicable. Barack Obama and John McCain have both said they don’t want a dirty campaign, but they can do nothing to stop Soros. He has the power here. It’d be nice if Senators Obama and McCain denounce Soros and Brock, but I’m not counting on that. Also, Politico and others are reporting that Obama has an association with two former far-left radicals, William Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn. They are members of the Weather Underground, a violent 1960s protest group. They now teach college in Chicago, and apparently the senator has socialized with them. So all in all, the radical left is playing a role in the next presidential election. And we will keep a close eye on this situation for you. And that’s “The Memo.”
George Soros and the “Mainstream Media” connections.
The O’Reilly Factor – FOXnews “The Factor has been investigating far-left billionaire George Soros, a man who wants to impose a radical left agenda on America. Soros has set up a complicated political operation designed to do two things – buy influence among some liberal politicians and smear people with whom he disagrees. Most of Soros’ political money flows through his ‘Open Society Institute,’ which has given nearly $20 million to the ‘Tides Foundation.’ Tides, in turn, has donated millions to the vile propaganda outfit ‘Media Matters,’ which specializes in distorting comments made by politicians, pundits and media people. ‘Media Matters’ directly feeds its propaganda to some mainstream media people, including elements at NBC News, columnists Frank Rich and Paul Krugman at the New York Times, columnist Jonathan Alter at Newsweek, and Bill Moyers at PBS. The goal of Soros and other radical financiers is to buy a presidential election. In the past, big business has been accused of doing just that. Now it is the likes of George Soros, an extremist who wants open borders, a one-world foreign policy, legalized drugs, euthanasia, and on and on. This is off-the-chart dangerous, but completely legal under the McCain-Feingold Act. In the weeks to come we’ll have more on Soros and his operations, including naming more of the mainstream media who are actively helping him.”
O’Reilly: Media Matters and Soros Funding (NewsMax.com) The war of words between Fox News Bill O’Reilly and the left-wing Web site Media Matters for America has heated up, with O’Reilly accusing the site of lying about funding from Bush-bashing financier George Soros. On April 24, O’Reilly told viewers of The O’Reilly Factor that Soros and several other wealthy radicals were helping to fund Media Matters which says it is dedicated to correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media by donating money to a foundation that in turn contributed to the Web site. Media Matters countered that while Soros Open Society Institute (OSI) did contribute to the foundation, the Tides foundation, and Tides gave Media Matters more than $1 million in 2005, the OSI funds were specifically earmarked for two other beneficiaries. Soros has never given money to Media Matters, either directly or through another organization, the Web site stated. On April 26, O’Reilly responded: “The vile Media Matters outfit is denying receiving funding from any of George Soros outfits,” he told viewers. Well, that is a total lie. As we laid out for you, the smear Web site received more than a million dollars from the Tides Foundation alone in 2005, and just by coincidence, Soros Open Society Institute donated more than a million dollars to Tides in 2005. Figure it out. Media Matters has featured a number of articles critical of O’Reilly on its Web site.
A Sight for ‘Soros’ Eyes (Family Research Council Washington Update February 5, 2007)
The same man who said he “chose America as his home because he values freedom and democracy” has likened our country to Nazi Germany. George Soros, the financial backbone of radical liberals like Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA), told reporters this weekend that “America needs to follow the policies it has introduced in Germany. We have to go through a certain deNazification process.” Despite the fact that these comments were made to the press corps, the media has largely ignored them. Only the New Republic fires back, condemning Soros for comparing President Bush to Hilter (sic). “Characterizing the U.S. under Bush as Nazi…casts a shadow over U.S. politics.” Soros has endorsed Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL).), but has also said he could support Hillary Clinton (D-NY). New Republic board member Martin Peretz ends his account of what he calls “The Madness of King George” with tough question for these two presidential candidates. “How,” Peretz writes, “without any explanation or apology from [Soros], will you take this man’s money?” Additional Resources Tyran-a-Soros
The madness of King George – Jacob Laksin – If putting one’s foot in one’s mouth were a lucrative enterprise, George Soros would be worth far more than his current $8.5 billion. While bashing the Iraq war for the benefit of reporters at this year’s World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, the Hungarian-born Soros, a Holocaust survivor, unburdened himself of the view that the Nazis were once more in charge. Only now they were running the United States. “America needs to follow the policies it has introduced in Germany,” Soros explained. “We have to go through a certain de-Nazification process.” Lest there be doubts that Soros was actually likening his adoptive country to the Third Reich and the Bush administration to the Nazi nomenklatura, a Soros spokesman, Michael Vachon, moved quickly to dispel them. “There is nothing unpatriotic about demanding accountability from the president,” he said of Soros’s appeal for de-Nazification. . .

George Soros help pay for Lynne Stewart’s defense? According to FoxNews – The O’Reilly Factor (Oct. 16, 2006), Soros gave $20,000 to the lawyer of Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahmed, the convicted plotter of the 1991 WTC bombing. Lynne Stewart was subsequently convicted on terror charges for taking a message from Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahmed to his terror group which encouraged them to proceed to commit other terrorist attacks.

David Horowitz and Richard Poe address the radical agenda of George Soros and secular liberals in their book The Shadow Party
George Soros is Pure Evil By Michael Illions – Any success on the part of the Democrats in the upcoming election can be traced to one man. The DNC, John Kerry and the Presidency of the United States itself will be beholden to this man. If you connect the dots and fill in the blanks, if you follow the cash and the funding of the major Liberal 527 groups, you come to George Soros. Soros, the Hungarian born billionaire, was responsible for the Asian Financial Crisis in 1997 and was dubbed the “man who broke the bank of England” in 1992. Further controversial business deals, it was ruled in 2002 that Soros was involved in insider trading during a French bank takeover bid in 1988. While admitting no wrongdoing, Soros was fined $2,000,000 for his part.

It found that Soros-funded groups supported increased government spending and tax increases, and opposed the death penalty and President Bush’s judicial nominees. In this article author Neil Hrab looks at Soros grants in four other policy areas: drug legalization, euthanasia, immigrant entitlements, and feminist organizing. View the full version in PDF Format
Soros: Bush’s War on Terror Worse Than 9/11 Leftist tycoon George Soros compares President Bush’s new doctrine to fight terrorism with fascism. Is Soros guilty of the same vice he accuses the president of: trying to impose his “point of view on the world”?
URGENT -PLEASE PRAY FOR THIS MAN –
Kathie and David Waters
May 16, 2004
Please – urgent. I feel we should pray for this man, George Soros. One of the wealthiest man in the world. I prayed this morning and I saw the Lord shut him up in tall cupboard but I am not sure what that means. He has billions but what if he lost his sight or he was crippled? What then? Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to show you what to pray. After my little article about him here, there is a short article from the Washington Post: I am going to UK Tuesday for David’s moms 100th birthday and I am ministering in Sarah Trinder’s church in Wales next Sat/Sunday and then Savannah week-end 28-30th.- Subject: GEORGE SOROS
FIND OUT ABOUT GEORGE SOROS –
I went and read some articles -George Soros, Hungarian Jewish multi-Billioniare (sic), has set his money and influence to oust President Bush. He funded the legalizing of drugs in CA – I think he started off meaning well, had a vision for an open society- he meant not controlled like Nazism or Communism which he lived under. But he had found that over the years that he can control governments by giving money and dealing in the currencies, and impose his own system, not directly but indirectly through supporting big time the groups that he agrees with and who will speak for him- kinda like puppets. He helped legalize drugs in CA. He did make about 2 billion in one week- by betting against the English pound, He became known as “the man who broke the Bank of England.” But God can cause him to unmake (lose) that same amount in a day. We are all only kept by the grace of God. I think he sees Bush as being totalitarian because of his Christian beliefs and he sees that as what he escaped from – he sees it as the same thing. One group imposing their view on another – and forcing it where they can. Because he has really helped nations like Russia etc. he sees himself as a kind of self-appointed savior, messiah, and he said as much. He gave $50 million in 1992 to alleviate suffering in Bosnia and gave $350 million in 1995 to help Russia. In fact he had a lot to do with the bringing down of communism. He has given $15.5 million so far to oust President Bush and his aim is to give $400 million a year to bring about his agenda’s in America-He has said he will give everything he has if he could make sure that George Bush doesn’t get in again. But understand where he’s coming from. He believes that Christianity is intolerant (which it is, when it to comes to false religions and anti-God agenda’s). He wants the world God free as he equates religion with control and suffering. Remember he doesn’t understand what Christianity is so he is ignorant. I really believe he thinks he is helping the world be free, Pray for him and get others to pray for him – very important. He will not donate to any Jewish organization, although he is a Hungarian Jew and does not like his brethren in Israel. Pray about it and see what the Lord shows you about George Soros. He nearly caused Malaysia banks to collapse by wheeling and dealing in the currency market. The Malaysian PM hates him. He has a great ability to see where the currencies of the nations are going and so makes most of his money buying and converting and selling currencies. When you fight something really hard like he fought against “control” in the form of Nazism and Communism, you get entagled (sic) in that spirit and then it takes you over too. I don’t think that George Soros realizes that the thing that he fought so hard against has taken over him. Article: Washington Post — George Soros, one of the world’s richest men, has given away nearly $5 billion to promote democracy in the former Soviet bloc, Africa and Asia. Now he has a new project: defeating President Bush. “It is the central focus of my life,” Soros said, his blue eyes settled on an unseen target. The 2004 presidential race, he said in an interview, is “a matter of life and death.” 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.
Overnight, Soros, 74, has become the major financial player of the left. He has elicited cries of foul play from the right. And with a tight nod, he pledged: “If necessary, I would give more money.” “America, under Bush, is a danger to the world,” Soros said. Then he smiled: “And I’m willing to put my money where my mouth is.”
Soros believes that a “supremacist ideology” guides this White House. He hears echoes in its rhetoric of his childhood in occupied Hungary. “When I hear Bush say, ‘You’re either with us or against us,’ it reminds me of the Germans.” It conjures up memories, he said, of Nazi slogans on the walls, Der Feind Hort mit (“The enemy is listening”). “My experiences under Nazi and Soviet rule have sensitized me,” he said in a soft Hungarian accent.
Soros’s contributions are filling a gap in Democratic Party finances that opened after the restrictions in the 2002 McCain-Feingold law took effect. In the past, political parties paid a large share of television and get-out-the-vote costs with unregulated “soft money” contributions from corporations, unions and rich individuals. The parties are now barred from accepting such money. But non-party groups in both camps are stepping in, accepting soft money and taking over voter mobilization. “It’s incredibly ironic that George Soros is trying to create a more open society by using an unregulated, under-the-radar-screen, shadowy, soft-money group to do it,” Republican National Committee spokeswoman Christine Iverson said. “George Soros has purchased the Democratic Party.”
In past election cycles, Soros contributed relatively modest sums. In 2000, his aide said, he gave $122,000, mostly to Democratic causes and candidates. But recently, Soros has grown alarmed at the influence of neoconservatives, whom he calls “a bunch of extremists guided by a crude form of social Darwinism.”
Neoconservatives, Soros said, are exploiting the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, to promote a preexisting agenda of preemptive war and world dominion. “Bush feels that on September 11th he was anointed by God,” Soros said. “He’s leading the U.S. and the world toward a vicious circle of escalating violence.”
Soros said he had been waking at 3 a.m., his thoughts shaking him “like an alarm clock.” Sitting in his robe, he wrote his ideas down, longhand, on a stack of pads. In January, Public Affairs will publish them as a book, “The Bubble of American Supremacy” (an excerpt appears in December’s Atlantic Monthly). In it, he argues for a collective approach to security, increased foreign aid and “preventive action.”
“It would be too immodest for a private person to set himself up against the president,” he said. “But it is, in fact” — he chuckled — “the Soros Doctrine.”
His campaign began last summer with the help of Morton H. Halperin, a liberal think tank veteran. Soros invited Democratic strategists to his house in Southampton, Long Island, including Clinton chief of staff John D. Podesta, Jeremy Rosner, Robert Boorstin and Carl Pope.
They discussed the coming election. 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.
Asked about his moment in the sun, Rosenthal deadpanned: “We were disappointed. We thought a guy like George Soros could do more.” Then he laughed. “No, kidding! It was thrilling. It was like getting his Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval.” “They were ready to kiss me,” Soros quipped.
Before coffee the next morning, his friend Peter Lewis, chairman of the Progressive Corp., had pledged $10 million to ACT. Rob Glaser, founder and CEO of RealNetworks, promised $2 million. Rob McKay, president of the McKay Family Foundation, gave $1 million and benefactors Lewis and Dorothy Cullman committed $500,000. 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.” At his home in Westchester, N.Y., he raised $115,000 for Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean. He also supports Democratic presidential contenders Sen. John F. Kerry (Mass.), retired Gen. Wesley K. Clark and Rep.> Richard A. Gephardt (Mo.). In an effort to limit Soros’s influence, the RNC sent a letter to Dean Monday, asking him to request that ACT and similar organizations follow the McCain-Feingold restrictions limiting individual contributions to $2,000. The RNC is not the only group irked by Soros. Fred Wertheimer, president of Democracy 21, which promotes changes in campaign finance, has benefited from Soros’s grants over the years. Soros has backed altering campaign finance, an aide said, donating close to $18 million over the past seven years.
“There’s some irony, given the supporting role he played in helping to end the soft money system,” Wertheimer said. “I’m sorry that Mr. Soros has decided to put so much money into a political effort to defeat a candidate. We will be watchdogging him closely.”
An aide said Soros welcomes the scrutiny. Soros has become as rich as he has, the aide said, because he has a preternatural instinct for a good deal.
Asked whether he would trade his $7 billion fortune to unseat Bush, Soros opened his mouth. Then he closed it. The proposal hung in the air: Would he become poor to beat Bush? He said, “If someone guaranteed it.” — 2003 The Washington Post Company
Commentary (unedited) form Hungary (Name withheld for security and protection.) — In response to your closing article about Soros, my own view of the man for the last thirty years is, that he is the devil, he is SATAN here on earth in person. He did not live under communism. He was adopted by the Interior minister of Hungary, so he can be saved from the german and hungarian nacis. As an\” adopted son\” he accompanied the minister to the homes of desplaced Jews, that was after March 19,1944. Prior to that date hungarian jews were not taken from Hungary. Governor Horty would not allow their deportation. what ever happened to jews it happened after that date. On march 19th Hungary was invaded by German paratroopers while Mr. Horty was held \”prisoner at the Astro- Hungarian border. When finally this evel entity left Hungary, by his own admission he left with SIX 100 Kg sack of GOLD, that He collected from empty jewish homes. Look at this man face carefully, you can see evel in his eyes. He did not suffer anywhere- anytime. He only brings distruction where ever He can. Gen and Ambassador to Hungary, Mr.Motgomary stated in his book \” Hungary, the unwilling sattilite\” that if the world had reacted as bravly as did the Hungarians to save the Jews not even 10% would have vanished. Yet Hungary is labelled, pictured and condemned as the most evel and ANTISEMMETIC country in our world. Go figure. Thank you for your time.
