There’s so much that’s shudder-worthy in Hillary’s illegal behavior and disastrous decisions around the world that her deep ties to her mentor, shady lawless billionaire mega-player Soros are being overlooked. Hillary and Soros have literally been as thick as thieves since before the first Clinton administration. The two share the same political passions: subversion of the Constitution in favor of global (mostly U.N.) decrees based on “social justice;” government-controlled healthcare rationed through “right to die” and other cost-saving measures; severely limiting or ending gun rights; and an open borders policy admitting floods of refugees and illegals and turning them into Democratic voters as soon as possible. While Donald Trump is all about America First, Hillary and Soros are globalists first.
If Hillary is elected, her shady mentor would be perched beside her in the world’s most powerful catbird seat promoting their radical leftist agenda. For years Soros has created, funded and run a spider’s web of tax-exempt “educational nonprofits” that push liberalism and attack conservatives, including Media Matters which has vowed “guerilla warfare and sabotage” against Fox News and tried to get Rush Limbaugh banned from Armed Services Radio.
The most influential group is probably the Center for American Progress (CAP) widely known as “the official Hillary Clinton think tank” launched in 2003. It was originally helmed by John Podesta, once Bill Clinton’s chief of staff and now Hillary’s campaign chair. CAP’s staff includes an old boys’ club of the former president’s advisors and appointees from the Clinton White House years. Hillary, Podesta and other Clinton operatives often get together with Soros for meetings and dinner and recent WikiLeaks emails showed 60 Podesta-Soros mentions. Soros began supporting Hillary Clinton’s presidential run in 2013 with a leading role in the “Ready for Hillary” group. Since then, he’s donated over $15 million to pro-Clinton groups and Super PACs. She owes him; and as her campaign manager Robby Mook observed to John Podesta, “the Clintons won’t forget what their friends have done for them.”
A George Soros embedded in the government would bring great peril to the American Republic, our national identity and rule by consent of the governed. He favors America’s subservience to international bodies and more power for groups such as the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. In 1998, he wrote: “Insofar as there are collective interests that transcend state boundaries, the sovereignty of states must be subordinated to international law and international institutions.”
In lock step with Soros, Clinton has urged that the U.S. submit to the International Criminal Court (ICC) which U.S. globalists want to supersede our Constitutional judiciary. As secretary of state she told a Kenyan group that it is a “great regret” that the U.S. has not bowed to the ICC which prosecutes war crimes, crimes against humanity, crimes of aggression and genocide. The ICC is even now investigating American military actions in Afghanistan, claiming jurisdiction because Afghanistan is a member of the ICC. It’s doubtful the U.S. Senate would ever ratify the ICC treaty but Hillary, if elected, would certainly find Obama’s magic pen and phone in the Oval Office desk drawer, the same ones that gave us the unratified Iran nuclear debacle. Hillary is heavily influenced by globalists like her former State Department strategist, Princeton professor Anne-Marie Slaughter who declared, “Government networks pierce the shell of state sovereignty by making individual government institutions – courts, regulatory agencies, or even legislators – responsible for implementation of rules created by a supranational institution…to make those rules directly enforceable.” Translation: bye bye American Constitution.
Soros’ open borders leading to eventual one-world government is similar to Hillary’s scheme to create a North/Central/South American version of the European Union. As she told a bunch of Brazilian bankers: “my dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders…we have to resist protectionism (and) other kinds of barriers to market access and trade.” No borders means no America. And illegal immigrants pouring over those non-borders means more “fundamental transformation” of the nation that was once America.
Because Soros, like Hillary, has no allegiance to any national or ethical boundaries. Like her, Soros’ primary purpose in life is acquiring riches by any means possible, legal or not. Both of them have a gaping hole where normally a conscience would be. People and nations are to be manipulated, not treated with kindness. When Hillary as Secretary of State and Bill Clinton as co-chair of the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission (IHRC) were in charge of spending the $9 billion given by governments, charities, and sympathetic individuals to help ruined Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake, they awarded juicy rebuilding contracts almost exclusively to “friends” who coincidentally donated millions to their fake charity, the Clinton Foundation. In the end, the destitute Haitians saw little benefit from the billions that had been intended for new homes, job opportunities, and infrastructure. But the Clintons’ inner circle of fellow millionaires saw huge profits, and even Hillary’s brother Tony Rodham, scored a lucrative gold mining concession. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton claims at every campaign stop that she has devoted her whole life to helping people.
George Soros too sees nations and people only as potential money spigots for his vast pirate treasure chest. He’s a currency manipulator who showed no compassion for the “little people” when he caused the British financial crisis that earned him the title “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England.” His heartless maneuvering resulted in the drastic devaluation of the pound and the destruction of ordinary Britons’ savings and businesses small and large -- and a billion-dollar profit for himself.
Soros had hit on a real money-maker. During the 1997 Asian financial crisis, the Malaysian Prime Minister accused Soros of bringing down the nation’s currency through his trading methods. In Thailand he’s been called an “economic war criminal” for similar activities. And France indicted him on charges of insider trading in the 1980’s and fined him $3 billion. No word on the last time he saw Paris.
In Hungary, his native country, regulators fined him $2 million for manipulating the stock price of the nation’s largest bank.
Not content with blowing up currencies, Soros also destroys governments at will. Boasts this megalomaniac in his autobiography, “My foundations contributed to democratic regime change in Slovakia in 1998, Croatia in 1999, and Yugoslavia in 2000…” The “democratic” part is questionable in that trained Soros activists who staged the 2000 coup started riots, threw Molotov cocktails, used mortars and AK-47s, and set fire to the Belgrade Parliament in Belgrade. In the former Soviet Georgia Soros instigated the overthrow of duly elected President Shevardnadze in 2003, again with thuggish street riots. The Soros-funded TV station broadcast exit polls that contradicted the official vote tally, as did the exit polls in the George Bush vs. John Kerry U.S. election a year later. Surprise: the exit pollsters were paid by Soros. But demonstrators attacked the Parliament building charging voter fraud. Rather than risk civil war, the elected president resigned and the victorious Soros told the Los Angeles Times, “I’m delighted by what happened in Georgia, and I take great pride in having contributed to it.”
Though he’s an American citizen, Soros deplores American power and vows to “puncture the bubble of American supremacy.” He has his own definition of the “open society” he’s trying to create with his radical activism, and it doesn’t include the most free and prosperous nation on earth. Soros goes so far as to claim in his book, The Bubble of American Supremacy, that “the United States itself could pose a threat to open society…”
But Soros himself could well pose a threat to the United States. There’s no guarantee he won’t bring his currency-busting, violence-fomenting agenda to this nation. Indeed, there are alarming signs he already has. According to an October 2011 Newsbusters article, the Occupy Wall Street riots and its sister protests across the country were partly fueled by seven groups that received over 3.6 million in grants from Soros’ Open Society Foundations. They include Common Cause Education Fund (part of Common Cause) and MoveOn.org.
And a Soros 2015 Open Society report obtained by Breitbart showed the organization approved $650,000 to “invest in technical assistance and support for the groups at the core of the burgeoning #BlackLivesMatter movement.” Continues writer Aaron Klein, “The report directly states the Open Society views the Baltimore unrest last year as a crisis that can be utilized to carry out the organization’s agenda.”
Fighting in the streets and smashing businesses, targeting police for assassination, dividing the country through stirring up class and race conflicts, flag-burning and capitalism hatred: none of it is the American way. But this is the Soros way. In 1995 when he was a great friend to White House occupiers Bill and Hillary, Soros told a PBS interviewer: “I do now have great access in the (Clinton) administration. “There is no question about this. We actually work together as a team.”
We don’t need radical nation-destroyer George Soros on our American team. We need America First Donald Trump.
