    I bet the person that wrote this works for the EVIL George Soros.

    The idiot democrats attack the Koch brothers for simply donating to the republicans yet are in bed with the truly EVIL george soros. This is a pretty pathetic and highly hypocritical attack by the democrats.

    You freaking hypocrite:

    Please point out one thing they have ever done that comes close to the EVIL GEORGE SOROS that the democrats are in bed with. Your argument is pathetic:

    So, Who is the real George Soros. The democrats constantly attack the Republicans and say they are in bed with big corporations when they are in bed with one of the most evil and corrupt people and corporations ever. He is worth an estimated $7.8 Billion and buys democrat politicians like candy even starting wars for his profit.

    (1) Convicted in France of insider trading, Soros specializes in weakening or collapsing the currencies of entire nations for his own selfish interests. He is known as the man who broke the Bank of England. His power is such that his statements alone can cause currencies to go up or down. Other people suffer so he can get rich.

The democrats constantly attack the Republicans and say they are in bed with big corporations when they are in bed with one of the most evil and corrupt people and corporations ever.

    (1) Convicted in France of insider trading, Soros specializes in weakening or collapsing the currencies of entire nations for his own selfish interests. He is known as the man who broke the Bank of England. His power is such that his statements alone can cause currencies to go up or down. Other people suffer so he can get rich.



    (2) Soros funds hundreds of other democrat organizations. Some of the many NGOs (None Government Organizations) that Soros funds with his billions are: MoveOn.org, the Apollo Alliance , Media Matters for America , the Tides Foundation, the ACLU, ACORN, PDIA (Project on Death In America ), La Raza, MoveOn.org, the open Society (the group that created the policy that sent us to Lybia), Media Matters, Wiki Leaks, and many more. For a more complete list, with brief descriptions of the NGOs, go to DiscoverTheNetworks.org. (Why doesn’t he give this money to charity instead if he cares so much about others? Because it is more profitable to buy corrupt politicians)



    (3) Obama gave a company a $2 Billion loan to a company Soros had just invested $800 Million to and then Obama also has been giving them permits to drill in the Gulf that he will not give to American Companies making Soros hundreds of millions of $$$$



    (4) Soros has repeatedly called 1944 “the best year of his life.”

    “70% of Mr. Soros’s fellow Jews in Hungary , nearly a half-million human beings, were annihilated in that year, yet he gives no sign that this put any damper on his elation, either at the time or indeed in retrospect.”

    During an interview with “Sixty Minute’s” Steve Kroft, Soros was asked about his “best year:”

    KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.

    SOROS: Yes. Yes.

    KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from your fellow Jews, friends and neighbors.

    SOROS: Yes. That’s right. Yes.

    KROFT: I mean, that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?

    SOROS: Not, not at all. Not at all, I rather enjoyed it.

    KROFT: No feeling of guilt?

    SOROS: No, only feelings of absolute power.

    (5) “Soros made his first billion in 1992 by shorting the British pound with leveraged billions in financial bets, and became known as the man who broke the Bank of England . He broke it on the backs of hard-working British citizens who immediately saw their homes severely devalued and their life savings cut drastically, almost overnight.”



    (6) In 1994 Soros crowed in “The New Republic ” that “the former Soviet Empire is now called the Soros Empire.” The Russia-gate scandal in 1999, which almost collapsed the Russian economy, was labeled by Rep. Jim Leach, then head of the House Banking Committee, to be “one of the greatest social robberies in human history.” The “Soros Empire” indeed.

    (7) In 1997 Soros almost destroyed the economies of Thailand and Malaysia . At the time, Malaysia ’s Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohamad, called Soros “a villain, and a moron.” Thai activist Weng Tojirakarn said, “We regard George Soros as a kind of Dracula. He sucks the blood from the people.”

    (8) France has upheld an earlier conviction against Soros, for felony insider trading.  Soros was fined 2.9 million dollars.

    (9) Recently, his native Hungary fined Soros 2.2 million dollars for “illegal market manipulation.” Elizabeth Crum writes that “The Hungarian economy has been in a state of transition as the country seeks to become more financially stable and westernized. [Soros’] deliberately driving down the share price of its largest bank put Hungary’s economy into a wicked tailspin, one from which it is still trying to recover.

    (10) But what about America ? Soros told Australia ’s national newspaper “The Australian”: “America, as the centre of the globalised financial markets, was sucking up the savings of the world. This is now over. The game is out,” he said, adding that the time has come for “a very serious adjustment” in American’s consumption habits. He implied that he was the one with the power to bring this about.”

    Soros: “World financial crisis was “stimulating” and “in a way, the culmination of my life’s work.”

    (11) In 2008, Soros donated $5,000,000,000 to the Democratic National Committee, DNC, to insure Obama’s win and wins for many other Alinsky trained Radical Rules Anti-American Socialist. George has been contributing a $ billion plus to the DNC since Clinton came on the scene.

    (12) And I mustn’t forget to mention Soros’ involvement with the MSM (Main Stream Media), the entertainment industry (e.g. he owns 2.6 million shares of Time Warner), and the various political advertising organizations he funnels millions to. In short, George Soros controls or influence most of the MSM. Little wonder they ignore the TEA PARTY, Soro’s NEMESIS.

    (13) As a young man, in Budapest, George Soros was a courier for the Jewish Council, the Nazi-established and Nazi-run organization that ran the Jewish community. The Jewish Council was ultimately controlled by Adolf Eichmann, the man known as the "architect of the Holocaust," who was in charge of the mass deportation of the Jews of Poland and Hungary to the extermination camps. Eichmann arrived in Budapest in early 1944, to take charge of the elimination of the Hungarian Jews. Before Eichmann left, 430,000 Hungarian Jews had been put to their death. In 1960, agents of the Israeli Mossad kidnapped Adolf Eichmann from Argentina, and brought him to Israel, to stand trial as a war criminal. During the trial, Eichmann was kept in a glass cage. He was convicted, sentenced to death, and was executed in 1962.



    (14) Soros signed a consent decree in United States District Court, in a Securities and Exchange Commission case involving stock manipulation, and was fined $75,000 by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission for holding positions “in excess of speculative limits.” Stories about Soros rarely, if ever, mention any of his legal problems.



    (15) Despite his vision of an “open society,” he operates an unregulated “hedge fund,” open only to the super-rich, and is currently fighting a proposal from the Bush-appointed chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission to regulate and monitor these offshore entities. House Speaker Dennis Hastert said on national television that no one really knows where the Soros money comes from.

    (16) Soros has categorically denied receiving money from drug cartels or any form of criminal activity. The fact remains, however, that at least some of his financial operations have been based offshore, in banking and financial centers that are widely reported to be considered conducive to money-laundering. The Soros fund is based in the Netherlands Antilles, a self-governing federation of five Caribbean islands. A CIA factbook describes the region as “a transshipment point for South American drugs bound for the US and Europe; money-laundering center.”

    (17) George Soros bought hundreds of millions in a Brazilian oil company named Petrobas. Coincidentally, Obama gave them a $2 Billion loan and gave them special drilling permits, while at the same time restricting permits here in the United States driving up gas prices. That sure is not helping the struggling consumer is it?

    Seems to me that Jeffrey Immelt of G.E. and Richard Trumpka of the AFL-CIO have far more influence over the President than the Koch brothers have over anyone who isn't an employee.

    What is up with this irrational derangement of the Left over these folks? Wealth envy? Class warfare?

    Or just something right out of Alinsky's book?

    Koch Brothers Palm Springs Gathering Draws Right-Wing Billionaires

    First Posted: 01-28-11 08:56 PM | Updated: 01-28-11 08:59 PM

    Billionaire brothers David and Charles Koch are hosting their bi-annual secret gathering of right-wing billionaires at the Rancho Mirage Resort in Palm Springs this Sunday, January 30. The tycoons of Koch Industries, a private multi-industry company, are also well-known for their support of the Tea Party through their foundation Americans for Prosperity.

    Even though the guest list for this weekend's event is being kept under wraps, The Guardian reports that this "will be a meeting of 'doers', men and women willing to fight the Obama administration and its perceived attack on US free enterprise and unfettered wealth."

    The New York Times reported on this event last October, when invitations first went out. The event invite included exhortations to "develop strategies to counter the most severe threats facing our free society and outline a vision of how we can foster a renewal of American free enterprise and prosperity" and "review strategies for combating the multitude of public policies that threaten to destroy America as we know it."

    Alternet reports that a coalition of progressive groups, including Common Cause, CodePink, California Courage Campaign, and Ruckus Society, are organizing a counter-protest of the Koch gathering. Former labor secretary Robert Reich and former green jobs czar Van Jones are slated to be on the open panel, and they will be discussing how to fight against growing corporate influence in the policy-making process.

    Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck were in attendance.

    You may want to wikipedia them. David and Charles Koch are extremely wealthy libertarians. According to some, they are at war with the O'bama Administration. http://www.newyorker.com/repo...

    On a factual level, they are two are two young men, if you consider 70+ young, who
    nherited a family company and have quite frankly made good. n 2008, Forbes called it the second largest privately held company in the United States (after Cargill) with an annual revenue of about $98 billion.

    If there is an American nobility, the Koch's are it. Some have suggested it was there money and influence that bought recent Supreme Court decisions. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/0...

    IMO, You need to know who these gentlemen are...you need to decide if I use the term "gentelmen" loosely,

    If you vote, which I don't know if you can from you personal description, the Koch Brothers are investing significant amounts of money into the election process which every voter should consider.

    Where does such stupid, poorly thought out rhetoric come from? Let me dissect the statement so you will understand exactly what you said. First you name the US President. Anyone attacking the President of the US is attacking the US. In most nations of the world, including most western democracies, attacking the President is considered treason. In the US, it is legal but very disrespectful of the American Institution.

    The word "war" is used to stir passions and dismiss rational discourse. The words "American People" is code for white men. The "special interest unions" is code for catholic immigrants.

    So your statement simply says "America is at war with White Anglo-Saxon Protestant men." Now are you man enough to say what you mean or are you going to continue to hide behind a hood like a coward?
