The Lost Symbol

Update: Jimmy Carter is shouting “racist” too along with other silly people in a clearly concerted race-baiting ploy to save the Mess-iah (especially a race-baiting congressman who is visuallizing white sheets and white hoods “riding through the countryside”) as Americans wake up to the non-stop boobery and corruption.

“Racist” Jon Stewart is talking nuts and “The Audacity Of Hos” and Big Media ignoring the ACORNs on the Obama tree:

Yesterday, a white 17-year old boy was beaten on a bus, in what Al Sharpton (if the races were reversed) would ordinarily call a “racially motivated” (that’s what the police captain said) “hate crime”. This past weekend major newspapers and just about every big PINO writer wrote race-baiting stories in support of Obama’s health care scam.

Kanye West, Serena Williams, Van Jones, Maureen Dowd race-baiting Joe Wilson, Jim Clyburn always race-baiting, reactionary race-baiter Bill Maher and CNN anchor Don Lemon race-baiting , ACORN’s nuts, Joan Walsh race-baiting and blackening, Frank Rich race-baiting, Obama race-baiting “stupidly” – So much for the “post-racial” era.

We’re not surprised by the latest conflicts on school buses which have always occurred. What is new is the racial animosity stirred by national events. We’re also not surprised at the race-baiting by major “liberal” writers, black and white, in recent days. We knew the race-baiting was on its way.

In August of this year we wrote that “Obama wants to play the “racist” card to resuscitate the corpse of his health insurance scam.

Earlier in the year we wrote:

Because of Obama’s race-baiting during the 2008 primaries, African-American politicians know they now can have friends and allies shout “racism” when in trouble and thereby defeat their white opponents. These fake shouts of “racism” in the age of fake demean the long and well documented history of racial bigotry. But like Obama and Burris the “racism” shouters (some like Bill The Bomber Ayres shout “racism” to scare off scrutiny and they are not even African-Americans) know they will not be punished for their bogus, politically motivated, claims of racism.

We have to amend our earlier paragraph to include white politicians engaged in race-baiting. We don’t mean the old caricature of white southern male race-baiters. We mean the 21st century variety. White politicians and writers, like African-American politicians and writers, know that race-baiting is a defense-proof weapon. White politicians and writers are also engaged in race-baiting in order to pass the health insurance scam.

Also, don’t think if you are African-American you are immune to the “racist” charge. Some of the most courageous voices against Obama, some beaten up, are African-Americans who are also tagged as “racists”. The Obama opposition is strong when united and must understand that racism is a charge used to divide.

* * * * *

Racism is just as deadly a drug as Hopium.

No person should imbibe either of those crippling drugs. The race-baiting charges are meant to emotionally inflame white liberals who want to feel morally superior or are genuinely upset by racism and distract from the details of the Obama health insurance scam. The race-baiting is meant to scare away opposition.

The race-baiting of the 21st century is utilized by white liberals and African-American politicians and activists – not the caricature southern racists of yore.

But the 21st century race-baiting has the same aim as the earlier anti-black race-baiting utilized by white politicians in the south (and don’t kid yourself it was just as bad if not worse in the north – Martin Luther King thought racism was worse in the North).

The aim of 21st century race-baiting, like 20th and 19th century race-baiting, is to emotionally inflame and distract.

We warn our readers and friends and allies: Do not be distracted by the enervating drugs of racism or Hopium. Beware of falling into the trap of the race-baiters. Do not let emotion inflame the blood and surrender the intellect to anger and bitterness. Racism and Hopium – Both are deadly and lead down the wrong path.

We warn our readers and friends and allies: Do not allow distrust of ACORN to veer into racism. Yes, many of the faces seen in ACORN scandal videos are black faces, but understand that the board rooms of ACORN are filled with white nuts.

The race-baiting is meant to emotionally inflame, distract from the Obama flim-flam scam, and explain the increasing hostility towards Obama by white voters.

New surveys show steep declines in Obama’s approval ratings among whites — including Democrats and independents — who were crucial elements of the diverse coalition that helped elect the country’s first black president.

Among white Democrats, Obama’s job approval rating has dropped 11 points since his 100-days mark in April, according to surveys by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press. It has dropped by 9 points among white independents and whites over 50, and by 12 points among white women — all groups that will be targeted by both parties in next year’s midterm elections.

“While Obama has a lock on African Americans, his support among white voters seems to be almost in a free fall,” said veteran Republican pollster Neil Newhouse.

Strategists in both parties blame Obama’s decline on growing discontent with his policy agenda, particularly after a month of often-rowdy debate over his proposed healthcare overhaul, in which some conservatives accused him of socialism. [snip]

Pew first identified a slippage in white support immediately after a news conference in July, when Obama surprised many by saying that a white police officer had acted “stupidly” in arresting a black Harvard professor.

Still unclear is whether Obama’s slide in the polls is due solely to his policies, or questions about his personal background or allegiances.

During the presidential campaign last fall, the nation’s economic meltdown swamped any attempts by Republicans to portray Obama as having radical associations with figures such as his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr.

The race-baiting is the Obama survival strategy. Policy differences account for Obama’s flaccid polls but the flim-flam Obama supporters shout “racism” to distract and divide.

The race-baiting is meant to emotionally inflame all sides in order to distract from the flim-flam and increasingly obvious fact that Obama cannot be trusted, is too inexperienced and unqualified to be president.

As Wbboei wrote:

I think what many people are saying to barack is dude you are one slick operator. But we know nothing else about you. We do not know where you were born, where you grew up, what your transcripts were, and most of all who put you there because we sure as hell didn’t. We know you were put there to change things, but we do not trust you to protect our interests in the process. In fact, we believe that you are too close to our enemies, allied to big business, and will throw us to the wolves when the opportunity presents itself. We do not like you, we do not trust you and we will no longer listen to you. So you and your big media shills go ahead and tell whatever lies you want. As far as we are concerned this is the twilight zone.

We’re not surprised by the race-baiting:

Barack Obama Thugs (hereinafter, “B.O.T.s) are back out in the streets. The “racist” card is charging up a storm. Anyone who opposes Obama is labeled “racist”. We now see the face of Barack Obama – “a uniter not a divider”. If you are black and opposed to Barack Obama – “racist”. If you are white and opposed to Barack Obama – “racist”. Anyone opposed to Barack Obama or his policies – “racist”.

We’re not surprised by the race-baiting – it’s the Obama way:

Back in Hawaii in the 1970s, it could seem that everyone was some kind of a minority. The fact that Obama was half-black and half-white didn’t matter much to anyone but Obama, Kakugawa says: “He made everything out like it was all racial.” On one occasion, Obama thought he’d gotten a bad break on the school basketball team because he was black. But Kakugawa recalls his father’s telling the teenager, “No, Barry, it’s not because you’re black. It’s because you missed two shots in a row.

Obama race-baited when it was obvious he had no “game”. We’re not surprised by the race-baiting now:

Last night Obama race baited. Obama admitted he did not have the facts but he still called the Cambridge police “stupid”.

Obama indeed did not have the facts. Obama made it seem as if the Cambridge cops were racist burly white men out for a night of cross burning. Obama did not notice there were black cops on the scene.

Remember when Obama was sold by the Hopium addled as a racial healer? Obama is not a racial healer he is a race-baiter for profit.

In 2008 white liberals, the young strung out on Hopium, and most of all – Big Media, forgot Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream that one day his “four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

PINOs, the Hopium addled, well-meaning as well as mendacious white liberals, African-Americans – both the good and the rotten, the formerly rational and honorable Democratic Party – all forgot Dr. King’s dream was also an admonition. These fools applauded Obama for his skin color and neglected his bad character.

Dr. King’s dream was a warning to the nation against the flim-flam artists he knew so well because they had tried to flim-flam him and the civil rights movement. Dr. King, wittingly or unwittingly, issued a warning that racial charlatans would eventually try to turn his dream into a skin color extortion scheme.

The race-baiting extortion has begun in order to profit the health insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies who will profit from Obama’s flim-flam schemes.

The Dream is a Nightmare now. The race-baiters, black and white, are in charge now.

  1. Yep, he is definitely being judged on the content of his character, and certainly NOT on his color.

    Great article admin!


    On the 233rd day of his presidency, Barack Obama grabbed the country’s lapels for the 263rd time—that was, as of last Wednesday, the count of his speeches, press conferences, town halls, interviews, and other public remarks. His speech to Congress was the 122nd time he had publicly discussed health care. Just 14 hours would pass before the 123rd, on Thursday morning. His incessant talking cannot combat what it has caused: An increasing number of Americans do not believe that he believes what he says. [snip]

    He deplores “scare tactics” but says that unless he gets his way, people will die. He praises temperate discourse but says many of his opponents are liars. He says Medicare is an exemplary program that validates government’s prowess at running health systems. But he also says Medicare is unsustainable and going broke, and that he will pay for much of his reforms by eliminating the hundreds of billions of dollars of waste and fraud in this paragon of a program, and in Medicaid. He says Congress will cut Medicare (it will not) by $500 billion—without affecting benefits. [snip]

    McConnell of the Mona Lisa smile says Congress will pass something because Obama will sign anything. McConnell notes, however, that never in his 25 Senate years have Republicans polled close to Democrats when the question is: Which party do you trust most to deal with health care? Until now. Last week’s polling: Democratic Party, 41; Republican Party, 39—a statistical dead heat. On a generic ballot question—which party do you intend to vote for?—the GOP has gone from down 12 points to dead even since November. Independents defected in droves from the GOP in 2006 and 2008, but today only one third of them view Obama’s handling of health care favorably.

    He says “the time for bickering is over.” Presidents of both parties disparage as mere bickering all inconvenient arguments about what government can and should do. Americans “didn’t send us here to bicker,” said George Herbert Walker Bush, in the first 15 minutes of America’s most recent one-term presidency.

  3. I am quite sure that if Bill Clinton had named names Soros would have topped the hit parade. Even now Hillary must be wary of not falling into his traps. If want to know why cnn and aol on line are still shooting at her it may well be because soros owns a large interest in their parent company, and is determined to keep her in line on the foreign affairs front. That is why I get nervous with some of the things she says, and the Honduras situation, which plays into the wrong hands. It is very tough to operate honestly in that party now because of him.

    Wbboei, Exactly, I wonder exactly when Soros bought into these news media stations?? I have always said the reason Hillary isn’t POTUS is that they (soros&etc) could not control her.

    I also thought that was very telling that GWB said Bambi was and idiot and in no way prepared to be POTUS. He will be one of the richest men in the world when he gets what Soros wants done.

    I also find it telling that Soros is now in oil, he will be able to use this to control the WHOLE world as this is what he wants to do.

    I think that the difference between Bill and Hillary. Hillary is not for sale, not say that Bill was totally for sale, but I think he would play a little.

  4. “An increasing number of Americans do not believe that he believes what he says.”


    I would also add that an increasing number of people worldwide do not believe that he even understands what he says.

    Excellent article, admin.

  5. Bill Clinton is endorsing Gavin Newsom for California governor. Big Media portrays this as Bill smacking down Jerry Brown. However, at Big Pink we know Gavin Newsom does not like Obama and vice-versa. Bill is smacking Obama, not Jerry Brown.

    Former President Bill Clinton is backing San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom for California governor over state Attorney Gen. Jerry Brown, potentially upending next year’s Democratic race to succeed Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    Clinton’s trip to California next month is expected to include an event in predominantly Latino East Los Angeles as well as a high-dollar fundraiser.

    While the endorsement of a former president is big news in any state, the former chairman of the California Democratic Party thinks it could be especially significant in California, a state where Clinton has had a strong following ever since he beat Brown in the state’s 1992 presidential primary.

    “There has never been a former president who has endorsed a candidate in a primary for statewide office in California,” said Art Torres, a former state lawmaker who headed the California Democratic Party from 1995 until earlier this year but is neutral in the current race.

    In addition to helping with fundraising and Latinos, the Newsom campaign is hoping that Clinton’s endorsement can help the San Francisco mayor make inroads in Southern California.
    “This is huge. It’s a potential game-changer,” said Ben Tulchin, a California-based pollster who is unaligned in the 2010 governor’s race.

    Clinton’s decision to appear on Oct. 5 alongside one of his wife’s top backers in her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination comes at a critical time for the San Franciso mayor: Although Newsom has built a substantial Facebook and Twitter following among younger voters, Brown, a former two-term governor, has raised more than twice as much money as he has. [snip]

    Given the efforts that Clinton is making on behalf of several of his wife’s backers around the country, the Brown camp may try to dismiss Clinton’s endorsement as simply the latest obligatory stop on the former president’s “payback tour.”

    Tulchin said, however, that the Clinton endorsement cannot be dismissed so easily.

    “Clinton could have easily taken a pass,” Tulchin said. “The fact that he is coming out now is a bold move.”

    The key going forward, according to Tulchin, is just how big of an investment Clinton makes in this race.

    “For Gavin to benefit from this fully, he needs significant help raising money,” Tulchin said. “If Clinton can help Gavin raise money, then Clinton gives Gavin the resources he needs to sell his story.”

  6. wbboei, I sent you info yesterday about the CFR, I hope you realize that Bzenzinski and Soros are members in standing in this secret organization. All of their meetings with POTUS and state dept. are secret.

    I am reading that Obama want Israel to bomb Iran. I don’t know what to think about that?? It would probably mean the end of Israel as I imagine Iran already has the A-bomb or at least by the time the Obamatimeline will be over.

  7. wbboei, theres a pic over on NoQuarter that shows 500 ships with no crew, no cargo just outside Singapore. My guess “tightening the belt” per Soros at Christmas time.

  8. Admin: false charges of racism are the last bastion of scoundrels.

    They poison the public mind, the divide body politic and lead to violence as we see in the school bus incident.

    At the rate he is going, Barack will fail. He will play the race card to excuse his failure. Guilt ridden liberal types will follow suit, because it is easier to do than admit that their own judgment was fatally flawed.

    Events are moving with dramatic precision to a denouement which no one really devised, but which everyone will recognize after the fact as inevitable. Soros may have lit the fuse but the outcome is an imponderable.

    Hang onto your hat. 2012 cannot come soon enough for the country.

  9. I’m waiting for obama to stick his foot in his mouth again when he comments on the boy who was beaten on the bus. It will be just like his “police racism comment” deer in the headlight moment.

  10. Clinton says talks with Iran must address nuclear issue

    September 15, 2009

    Washington, 15 September (WashingtonTV)—US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday that Iran must address concerns about its nuclear program in upcoming talks with major powers.

    “I think it is important to underscore that we have made clear to the Iranians that any talks we participate in must address the nuclear issue head on. It cannot be ignored,” she told reporters in Washington, according to Reuters.

    The six powers working to resolve the longstanding nuclear standoff – the United States, Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia – are due to take part in talks with Iran on 1 October.

    Iran has said it is ready for wide-ranging talks with the six powers, but that it would not negotiate on its “inalienable” right to nuclear energy.

    Asked how the U.S. could agree to the talks without any Iranian commitment to discuss its own nuclear program, Clinton said: “The point is to meet and explain to the Iranians face to face the choices Iran has and to see whether Iran is prepared to engage with us around its nuclear program.” She admitted that “there is no prediction” as to what will emerge from the talks, which are likely to take place in Turkey, reports AFP.

    The talks, the first since July 2008, will involve the political directors of the six countries and Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili.

  11. wbboei, theres a pic over on NoQuarter that shows 500 ships with no crew, no cargo just outside Singapore. My guess “tightening the belt” per Soros at Christmas time.
    It has been that way for several months. I have spoken to Pacific Maritime Association representatives about it. It has caused havoc on the waterfront. And what was Soros response to all this? He said, and I quote “I am having a nice crisis thank you”. His indifference to human suffering is no different than what we saw in the 60 minutes segment when he told an incredulous Steve Croft, that he had no guilt about what he did in 1944 and the human beings who boarded the trains for the death camps were symptomatic of the way markets work some winners and some losers. That is one of the coldest statements in history and he said that at the mature age of 67. Is there any doubt that he is an evil man? He operates behind a veneer of charitable works so unless you know you would never suspect.

  12. I think it is important to underscore that we have made clear to the Iranians that any talks we participate in must address the nuclear issue head on. It cannot be ignored,” she told reporters in Washington, according to Reuters.
    I hope Barack does not undermine Hillary on this one. It would be just like him to go meet with the Supreme Leader all by himself and cut a different deal. Remember, Barack is on record saying that we cannot prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. But if the Supreme Leader gave Barack a golden copy of the Koran, and special consideration for General Electric then we may find it is all negotiable. He would tell us GE will be the inspectors.

  13. The official Presidential song “Hail to the CHief ” Sould be replaced by the Willie Nelson hit “On The Road Again”

    Congratulations! That’s wonderful news.

  15. McConnell of the Mona Lisa smile says Congress will pass something because Obama will sign anything.
    What a different world it would be if we had a Democratic Party headed by Hillary Clinton. In your wildest dreams, can you imagine McConnell saying Congress will pass something because “Hillary” will sign anything. If Hillary were President, there would be no sell out to big business or the Republican Party. She would have presented her own bill, at the right moment and shepherded it through congress as only she could.

  16. wbboei, you got that right. You can be sure the people that have been screwed by the media of being cheated out of POTUS are the good one, the ones that wont bend to the likes of SOROS. Lets see if we can name a few. Gore, Hillary, Palin, help me with the Rethugs, I am not up with them. I am sure some more besides Palin have been screwed. I remember this guy named Hunter ?? from California and my favorite of all time Sam Brownback of Kansas.

  17. I do not think there has ever been a stupider person in congress than Nancy Pelosi. If I were Wilson’s opponent, I would tell her that if she wants to win my district do not under any circumstances censure Wilson. All it will do is inflame the sentiments of my constituents and make it impossible for me to win. They will hang you and me from the same tree, figuratively speaking. The wheels are already in motion. Of course if he did say that it would have little effect. She is too dumb to see it.

  19. Major Obama Campaign Bundlers Nominated for Ambassador Posts in Australia, Luxembourg

    Published by Michael Beckel on September 15, 2009

    Of three ambassadorial nominees President Barack Obama announced late Friday night, two of them are major political fund-raisers, bundling more than half a million dollars a piece for Obama’s presidential campaign.

    Seattle philanthropist and venture capitalist Cynthia Stroum of Seattle is slated to be the new ambassador to Luxembourg. She bundled more than $500,000 for Obama’s 2008 presidential run.

    According to a Center for Responsive Politics analysis, Stroum, along with her daughter, has also directly contributed about $165,000 to federal parties, candidates and committees since 1989.

    Of this sum, 97 percent has gone to Democrats, including $4,600 to Obama and $1,000 to now-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    Stroum also contributed $10,000 to Obama’s inauguration earlier this year, the Center’s analysis indicates.

    The new ambassador-nominee to Australia, Jeff Bleich, also bundled at least $500,000 for Obama’s presidential run. (Bundlers are people who ask friends, associates, and well, anyone who’s willing to give, and then deliver the checks to a candidate in one big “bundle.”) Bleich has worked as a lawyer for nearly 15 years in the San Francisco office of Munger, Tolles & Olson, according to a White House press release issued Friday night.

    He has had a long-standing interest in international law, performing legal work to assist the Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal and the United Nation’s International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. He clerked for former Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist, has taught international human rights at the University of California at Berkley, and last year, served simultaneously as the chair of the California State University Board of Trustees and as the president of the State Bar of California. He currently serves as special counsel to President Obama at the White House. Along with his wife, Bleich has contributed about $78,000 to Democratic candidates, parties and committees since 1999, according to a CRP analysis. The Bleiches contributed $6,700 to Obama last cycle and another $1,000 to him during his 2004 U.S. Senate bid. He also contributed $2,300 to Clinton in 2008.

    Lastly, career diplomat Leslie Rowe is set to be the next ambassador to Mozambique. Rowe, who joined the Foreign Service in 1983, has served as the ambassador to Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu since 2006.

    Obama has also recently named several individuals to various diplomatic jobs with the rank of ambassador, all who’ve made small campaign contributions to various candidates and committees.

    They include: Michael W. Punke, of Montana, to be a Deputy United States Trade Representative; Carmen Lomellin, to be the permanent representative of the United States to the Organization of American States; Frederick “Rick” Barton, to be the representative of the United States on the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations and Jide Zeitlin, to be the representative of the United States to the United Nations for U.N. Management and Reform.

    To update our ongoing coverage, by CRP’s count, Obama has named 84 individuals to posts with the rank of ambassador. Twenty-two of them have been bundlers for Obama’s political committees. One, former Utah governor Jon Huntsman, was a campaign bundler for Republican presidential candidate John McCain.

    Fifty-two of the ambassadors have contributed to federal candidates, parties or committees since 1989. And 32 of them have not made any known campaign contributions.

  20. He has climbed back in the saddle, taken the bull by the horns, shouted out his opponents, lit the golden path to our future, inspired the American People, showed world class leadership, foresight, wisdom and resolve with that magnum opus speech relax world your hour of deliverance is as hand, so says Big Media. And then, as if by magic, an astronomical 10 point jump in the polls and the old Obama is back. Praise the Lord. Man are we good. High fives for Matthews, Olberman and Brian Williams, aka Lord Fauntleroy.

    Not everyone agrees with that floridly delusional analysis however. From The Guardian comes a slightly different take:
    Unquestionably we should not have allowed banks to become so big and so intertwined that their failure would cause a crisis. But the Obama administration has created a new concept: institutions too big to be resolved, too big for capital markets to provide the necessary discipline. The perverse incentives for excessive risk-taking at taxpayers’ expense are even worse with the too-big-to-be-resolved banks than they are at the too-big-to-fail institutions. We have signed a blank cheque on the public purse. We have not circumscribed their gambling – indeed, they have access to funds from the Fed at close to zero interest rates, and it appears that “trading profits” have (besides “accounting” changes) become the major source of returns.

    Last night Barack Obama defended his administration’s response to the financial crisis, but the reality is that a year on from Lehmans’ collapse, it has failed to take adequate steps to restrict institutions’ size, their risk-taking, and their interconnectedness. Indeed, it has allowed the big banks to become even bigger – just as it has failed to stem the flow of profligate executive bonuses. Obama’s call on Wall Street yesterday to support “the most ambitious overhaul of the financial system since the Great Depression” is welcome – but the devil, as ever, will be in the detail.

    Three simple words stand out…

    “it has failed”

    A label that can aptly apply to everything he and his administration has tried so far.

  23. Politico’s latest pile of excuses for why Big Media does not cover stories like ACORN has this:

    Jon Banner, executive producer of ABC’s “World News,” said that he’s been discussing doing an ACORN piece with chief White House correspondent Jake Tapper over the past week, but the show hasn’t run one on the latest scandal. “World News,” he said, is expected to report on ACORN tonight. [snip]

    “For Glenn Beck to devote 45 minutes of his show to ACORN and Van Jones says more about his news judgment than mine,” said Dean Baquet, Washington bureau chief of the New York Times.

    “He’s not a newsman and that’s not a news show,” Baquet continued. “He’s not trying to cover the economy, two wars, health care, the aftermath from one administration to another, negotiations with Iran or North Korea.”

    Baquet said he agreed with Times managing editor Jill Abramson, who responded to readers on that the paper was “a beat behind” on the Jones story. The paper, he said, should have run a piece when Jones apologized for radical statements and an affiliation with a 9/11 “truther” group prior to his resignation.

    Still, Baquet said he doesn’t think “not being all over the Van Jones story is a mortal sin.” And for critics claiming bias, Baquet pointed out that the paper aggressively covered allegations against Democrat Tom Daschle, someone who would have had far more power in the Obama administration.

    While Baquet noted that The Times ran a story on ACORN today—following the Senate vote to cut off funding—critics like MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough contend that the paper would have not only have been covering the current scandal earlier, but would have played it up if it was a conservative organization.

    On his radio show Tuesday, Scarborough debated the media’s coverage of ACORN and Van Jones with NBC chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd, who said he believed these stories can be a “crutch” for conservatives looking to highlight instances of media bias.

    “If the Christian Coalition, in 1995, had a sting operation carried on against it by a liberal group, I guarantee you it would have been front page, New York Times, the next day, “ Scarborough said, “and people like me would have been called out, people saying, ‘how could you ever, ever justify supporting a group that would teach people how to violate the tax code and promote prostitution.’”

    Christopher Isham, Washington bureau chief for CBS News, disagrees.

    “There’s no ideological filter that goes on,” Isham said. “If it’s a good story, it’ s a good story.”

    Isham said that CBS has been “batting around” an ACORN story, and expects it to soon be covered on the evening newscast. Although the sting videos quickly went viral, Isham said that “you have to be very careful” when it comes to such reporting, and “learn as much as you can about the circumstances” before putting them on the air.

  24. Thomas Jefferson wrote something that could be applied to the arrogant elites who have caused the rising anger in modern America: “Men by their constitutions are naturally divided into two parties:

    1. Those who fear and distrust the people, and wish to draw all powers from them into the hands of the higher classes. BARACK OBAMA

    2. Those who identify themselves with the people, have confidence in them, cherish and consider them as the most honest and safe, although not the most wise depository of the public interests…”HILLARY CLINTON

  25. Jon Banner, executive producer of ABC’s “World News,” said that he’s been discussing doing an ACORN piece with chief White House correspondent Jake Tapper over the past week, but the show hasn’t run one on the latest scandal. “World News,” he said, is expected to report on ACORN tonight.
    Tapper–don’t do it BOY. Don’t spoil your perfect record. You know if you do do it you will do it in a way that insulates Barack. So just take a pass BOY. By the time you report anything it is ancient history. Better clear it with Soros before you breathe BOY. He owns your network.

    Sen. Jay Rockefeller (W.Va.), the second-ranking Democrat on the Finance Committee, will not vote in favor of the healthcare reform bill his panel’s chairman will introduce Wednesday, he told reporters Tuesday.

    “There is no way in its present form that I will vote for it,” Rockefeller said during a conference call co-hosted by the liberal Campaign for America’s Future

    Rockefeller’s rejection of Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus’s (D-Mont.) proposal, outlined more than week ago, is not a surprise. The West Virginia Democrat, who is the chairman of the panel’s Health Care Subcommittee, has not been included in the bipartisan negotiations that produced the framework for Baucus’s proposal. Throughout the process, Rockefeller has been highly critical of Baucus for offering too many concessions to Republicans in hopes of winning bipartisan support for the bill.

    The primary subject of the conference call was the so-called public option proposal, which would entail creating a government-run insurance program that would compete with private companies. As a proposed compromise, Baucus has adopted a plan from Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) to create member-owned, not-for-profit healthcare cooperatives as an alternative to traditional health insurance.

    But Rockefeller reiterated his previously stated concerns that Baucus’s bill does too little to ensure that health insurance would be more affordable for middle-class families and that the measure does not adequately strengthen Medicaid and would transition too many kids from the Children’s Health Insurance Program to private insurance.

    “I have sat beside Max Baucus for 22 years on the Finance Committee. I’m probably his best friend among Democrats on the Finance Committee, but I cannot agree to this bill,” Rockefeller said.

    Rockefeller commented he will not vote for the Baucus bill during the committee markup that will begin next Tuesday unless the measure is changed in “vast amounts,” he said.

    Rockefeller may well get his wish. Baucus expects Finance Committee members to offer numerous amendments during the markup. After meeting with Baucus on Tuesday evening, several committee Democrats identified misgivings similar to Rockefeller’s and made clear they expect the bill to undergo significant changes during the markup.

    Rockfeller said he’ll sponsor an amendment in committee to add a public option to the bill, and will have other amendments as well.

    “I’m not going to worry about, ‘Is it coming out of the committee or is not coming out of the committee?’ ” Rockefeller said. “I’m going to vote the way I feel.”


  27. Dean Baquet, Washington bureau chief of the New York Times: Beck is not a newsman and that’s not a news show,”
    Hey Deano. Lets simplify this. Beck told the truth and you censored it. Traditionally, newsmen did what Beck did, and propagandists did what you do. Nobody takes you seriously Deano, nobody.

  28. Dems ready to amend Baucus’s health bill
    By Jeffrey Young – 09/14/09 09:42 PM ET

    Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee are poised to demand changes to the healthcare legislation being drafted by their chairman.

    Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) plans to introduce his proposal for healthcare reform on Wednesday with a committee mark up to begin the following Tuesday. Based on the comments by several committee Democrats after a meeting Monday evening, that mark up could be a lengthy one.

    Baucus acknowledged that the mark-up could prove a busy one but predicted that Democrats would support the package he plans to unveil Wednesday without major changes.

    “I don’t see any deal-breaker amendments,” Baucus said. “Put it this way: It’s unlikely that any amendments, which basically change the framework, will be accepted.”

    Near the top of the list for the panel’s Democrats is worry that health insurance subsidies will not be sufficiently generous nor available to enough people despite the fact that the bill would legally require most people to obtain coverage. Beyond premiums, some Democrats are concerned that Baucus’s proposal would not do enough to protect middle-class families from high healthcare expenses.

    “It’s very clear, at this point in the debate, the flashpoint is all about affordability,” said Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.). “I personally think there’s a lot of heavy lifting left to do on the affordability issue.”

    The healthcare bills already approved by three House committees and another Senate committee offer more generous subsidies – but at a higher cost to taxpayers.

  30. Well, apparently the blacks are feeling the pinch as I just came from town and several of them had their Obama shirts on.

    That video is horrid, my youngest grandson goes to all black school and his dumbass father allowes this to happen while the older two get to go to a all white school. The youngest goes to this school because his stepmother is a teacher there. I don’t like it because its not racially balanced. If I were a black parent I wouldn’t want my black child to go to an all white school especially if the child was a girl. I like integrated schools that are balanced if that is possible. Those of you out there that are teachers tell me what you think of this. My grandson is 6 years old and very small for his age.

  32. Admin,

    What a brilliant analysis.

    Especially this:

    ‘Dr. King, wittingly or unwittingly, issued a warning that racial charlatans would eventually try to turn his dream into a skin color extortion scheme.’


  33. Confloyd

    Congrats to your daughter. Mine, out of a job since Mar goes for another interveiw this week. Keep her in your thoughts.

  34. NMF, I will say a prayer for her. Its hard because we are the ones that have to support them while their out of work.

  35. ABC News’ Rick Klein: The House of Representatives voted today to upbraid Rep. Joe Wilson over the outburst he directed at President Obama last week, in a racially charged debate over an extraordinary breach of congressional protocol.

    The brief resolution, approved 240-179 on a vote that broke down mostly on party lines, states that “the House of Representatives disapproves of the behavior” exhibited by Wilson.


    This is about the rules of the House, and reprehensible conduct,” said House Minority Whip Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., who led colleagues in the Congressional Black Caucus to press for a formal vote condemning Wilson’s conduct. “Silence gives consent. We cannot be silent in this matter, because we do not consent with the conduct of Mr. Wilson.”

    Wilson, R-S.C., stood on the House floor while Democrats lined up to lambaste him, and Republicans took to the microphone to defend his honor.


    But the sniping isn’t likely to end with the vote.

    Both Wilson and his political opponents have used the outburst as part of fundraising appeals over the past week. Democrat Rob Miller, who ran against Wilson last year and is planning another challenge in 2010, has raised about $1.5 million in the last six days, according to party officials, while Wilson himself has brought in nearly $2 million

    LUCASVILLE, Ohio — Gov. Ted Strickland ordered a weeklong reprieve for a condemned inmate on Tuesday after the Ohio execution team had problems finding usable veins for the lethal injection process.

    Executioners were unable for more than two hours to find veins that would accept fluid from an IV without collapsing for 53-year-old Romell Broom, who was sentenced to die for the rape and slaying of a 14-year-old Tryna Middleton in 1984.

  39. All this racist claptrap is making me barf, what the fuck has censuring Joe Wilson got to do with the KKK running through the countryside.

    I got news for him, the KKK has been running through Georgia countryside for about 100 years. They never stopped.


  40. We need to make a list of republicans and democrats that voted for this measure and VOTE them out. What kind of country is this when someone can’t tell the truth!!

  41. I appreciate your admonition in the above posting. It is apparent that the people behind Mr. Obama were determined to use the race card to win the election and to govern. That is the essence of evil. It is precisely the kind of thing a man like Soros would do.

    Obviously, I am not privy to their thoughts, but if the goal is to induce a shock doctrine, then the race card would be a valuable tool. The cause and effect matrix would look like this:

    1. Step 1: select a black candidate who will do the bidding for the elites and bamboozle the masses. Promote him as the living symbol of the Civil Rights movement. Invoke the name of Dr. King early and often. Compare him to Lincoln and Kennedy. Whip up big media support.

    2. Step 2. promote him as a post racial figure, who will unite the country after the disastrous Bush presidency. Have his campaign operatives attack Hillary and Bill as racists, knowing that they cannot fight back without attacking a black man and dividing the party. Keep Obama above the fray. Stir up latent Clinton hate in Big Media.

    3. Step 3: call black Hillary supporters Uncle Toms and threaten to primary them. Secretly approach disenchanted members of the DNC who do not want the Clintons running the party. Conspire against the party and the country. Threaten hold outs with blackmail, physical violence, bribery or political reprisal if they do not cross over and support Obama

    4. Step 4: approach the corporations who control Big Media and promise them sweetheart deals if they slant their coverage to favor Obama and destroy opponents. Encourage them to launch sexist attacks against Hillary and thereafter Palin. Coodinate their campaigns with the media.

    5. Step 5: when it comes to governing label all critics racists and get people like Chuck Todd, Bob Herbert et. al. to repeat the charge over and over. This will resonate with blacks and cause them to rally around Mr. Obama to show racial solidarity. Promote the false notion that if he fails they all fail.

    6. Step 6: use the race bait card to pulverize the white electorate. Force the weak ones to cower. Force the strong ones to confront. And when they confront, double down on the charge of racism, and thereby inflame the blacks. Let things escalate, and have Mr. Obama come in as the great healer, and further antagonize the parties with vague platitudes and dog whistle messages.

    7. Step 7: promote him as a global brand. Allow him to make thousand of speeches talking about what he will do, rather than what he has done. Have him mediate international disputes, with US treasury funds.

    The way to short circuit this is to show that the tactics of Mr. Obama are the polar opposite of Dr King. That is an alternative symbol around who blacks and whites of good faith can find common ground. Barack may be many things, but Dr. King he is most definitely not. Blacks whites and progressives should all attack Mr. Obama from that perspective. That will coterize the wound Soros et. al. have created,

    Admin. those comments were addressed to you. I wanted you to know I understood what you were saying.

  43. Wbboei, this is from conservapedia:
    2008 Financial Crisis
    While the rest of the world financial markets were losing billions of dollars, Soros made billions of dollars for which he said, [he’s] “having a very good crisis.” [34] Some people speculate that Soros was responsible for the crisis by removing his large sums of money from institutions and betting against currency valuations.

    2009 Obama and Soros
    The person with the most to gain and the person that spent the most to elect Barack Obama was George Soros. Clearly, they share a ‘socialistic’ ideology. Seven months into Obama’s presidency, it would be fact to say Soros agrees 100% with the legislation Obama is proposing, right in line with his expectations.

  44. “it is apparent that the people behind Mr. Obama were determined to use the race card to win the election and to govern.”

    wbboei, read the article above and you will see Jarrett was the one who drove the white campaign staff to use racism as a winning card…

  45. It behooves the victor in any war to think long and hard about the conditions of peace. At the Treaty of Versailles, the victors Wilson, Clemenseau, Lloyd George failed to do so and that led to World War II. I could be wrong, but I think the dreams for a second term ended on Saturday morning, and no amount of big media spin can repeal the law of gravity.

    This war will go on until 2012, but the end is not in doubt. The issue is the conditions of peace. Hence, the explanation for Mr. Obamas failure must be the right one. In my opinion, the right explanation is that Mr. Obama failed because he lacked the requisite experience, failed to fix the problems and did not adhere to the legacy of Dr. King. A society can unite around those principles, so the next President can break the chains of big business and forge a lasting bond with the American People.

  46. Carter claims there is a racist overtone against BO>

    That POS. two POS in a pod.

    In the meantime I find it disgustingly ironic that Cryburn dares say Wilson didn’t follow the ROOOOLZ after what Bradzilla and the DNC did to HRC.

    MF’ers! 👿

  47. This was Soros in 2003, hmmm, hmmm, wonder if he knew Obama then????
    If my recollection is accurate, Dean introduced him Obama to Soros in 2004. I have no evidence that they knew each other prior to that time.

  48. Jarrett was the one who drove the white campaign staff to use racism as a winning card…
    That fits, especially when you consider who her father was.

  49. Thanks wbboei for bring Soros to the fore.

    We all need to bird dog this monster and drive him into submission.

    Just think David and Goliah-

    It only took a pebble to bring that Giant megalith down.

    I bet Soros is allergic to “PINK” 🙂

  50. The truth is, there ARE racists out there who don’t like Obama. But when you say criticism of him is race-based, you can get dangerously and unfairly close to painting all his opponents with that brush.

  51. pm 317: I really enjoy the posts you have done at No Quarter. I tried to submit something over there recently and nothing came of it.

  52. wbboei and Basil9, Soros did not figure the tea baggers in his quest to put Obama in so he could break the U.S., now he realizes the jig is up and he won’t be able to get the things done he wanted. What better way to achieve this but to have another civil war. I bet this is what he is planning. This race card that is being played is exactly what he wants done now.

    Lets look up some of the other takeovers per Soros and see if he instigated wars within the borders of a state. I bet he did.

  53. he truth is, there ARE racists out there who don’t like Obama. But when you say criticism of him is race-based, you can get dangerously and unfairly close to painting all his opponents with that brush.
    There are a small number, but that is not what is driving the opposition and when people like Chuck Todd make sweeping allegations to that effect they are intentionally spreading propaganda. Reductio ad absurdum.

  54. Thanks wbboei for bring Soros to the fore.
    I owe it all to you Mrs. Smith for uncovering the article posted above. It provides a more comprehensive account of Gorgeous George’s nefarious activities than I had seen before. The only hard evidence I had in my file was the account of how he destroyed the Russian economy, which was written by an eye witness named Dr. Thelma Butler. This may help explain the cold reaction he received from Putin when Barack went their. My world toppled when I saw that U-tube video where no one would shake his hand.

    George is in league with Obama. He is part of the gang of four who meet at the White House every week to massage the news so the public is bamboozled. Better to ask him an innocuous question like why did you send Michelle out of town?

    I agree, I’ve never seen such a comprehensive article detailing Soros’ trail of destruction after singlehandedly submarining a country’s economy. It’s almost inconceivable one man has such power to manipulate a country’s currency to virtually leave it bankrupt if he is so inclined.

    The first name of the Rothschild I was thinking of came to me… Evelyn..

  60. wbboei, I have found the piece I was telling you about for months about how Soros uses antisemitism for control just the way Obama uses the race card. I have emailed to you. Its very long. Maybe you could figure out how to break it up and post it or post a link. I don’t know how to do that.

  61. wbboei 9:29, No apology needed, but am glad you can now see how deep this thing is. Its in every branch of government. I read somewhere that Soros picked Sonia Sotomayer. He owns La Raza and she is in it. He is using the non-whites for control, all they have to say is the person is a racist. It scares the hell out of me that Soros has a puppet on the Supreme Court.

  63. Rangel: Obama speech made health bill harder


    WASHINGTON — A key House committee chairman says proposals President Barack Obama set out in his health care speech are causing problems for Democrats trying to finalize health legislation in the House.

    Ways and Means Chairman Charles Rangel of New York says House Democrats would have to slash subsidies to the poor to get their bill to the $900 billion, 10-year price tag Obama specified.

    Rangel also noted that the president didn’t mention the new income tax on the wealthy that House Democrats want to use to pay for their bill, favoring a different approach instead. The congressman said “the restrictions that the president has given in his speech as well as the proposed discussions in the Senate has caused us more problems.

  64. This country and much of the world are going through a period economic destruction and the blame can be put directly in the of the hands of this unvetted inexpeienced big media pandering phony.He has caused much damage with his three promises to his suppoters.
    1 Restitution
    2 Retribution
    3 Enpowerment

    His adoration base is in for a huge
    disappointment from this “Snakeoil Salesman”

    By ABM91 To think that We did have Hillary until the DNC caved in to the
    the RACE Card and crowned the
    ” Messiah”

  65. “The laundry list of his shady activities reads like a rap sheet. By discouraging foreign direct investment, engaging in insider trading, short-selling bank stocks, and speculating against foreign currency, George Soros has single-handedly arrested the economic growth of many developing countries.”

    “When Soros and his investment fund aren’t directly attacking foreign capital markets, he’s recruiting NGOs to execute public misinformation campaigns against foreign investment in developing economies. In one instance, Soros along with a cabal of activists made a show of lobbying for aid to foreign governments. With the public distracted by Soros’ stunt, his investment fund stealthily focuses its efforts on bankrupting their financial markets.”


    This Soros site is relatively new. You can see it here: h… w…

  66. “I am a devotee of CFR. But I did not realize it had been how shall I put it infiltated. Why in the hell would they admit Sorsos . . . unless Breznvevsky got him in.

  70. Brit Hume is correct, when he said that calls of unfounded racism does cheapen the racism calls, when it is actually true. After awhile, people may just start tuning those accusations off.

  71. It’s going to take an awful lot of association to affect Soros global standing. He’s is a wild beast and will need more than the exposure Glenn Beck can provide to tie him down.

    The best we can hope for at this point is lashing him to Obama letting the public know George Soros is running our country not Obama . Obama is nothing more than his tool.

    Letterman appearance latest for Obama media blitz

    NEW YORK — President Barack Obama is visiting David Letterman on Monday, part of a media blitz to sell his health care plan.

    CBS says it would make the first visit ever by a sitting president to Letterman’s “Late Show.” Obama has appeared on Letterman’s show five times before, the last during the campaign in September 2008.

    The president is scheduled to visit Sunday morning talk shows this weekend on ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN. That’s a highly unusual schedule, even for a president eager to get his message across throughout the media.

    Obama will be the sole guest on Monday’s “Late Show.”

    this article is very long, but it does show what he has done in other countries and how exactly he uses antisemitism to shut people up. maybe you can figure out how to break it up an po Behind “Wizard” George Soros
    by William Engdahl

    EIR Investigation Executive Intelligence Review (EIR), November 1, 1996

    The dossier that follows is based upon a report released on Oct. 1 by EIR’s bureau in Wiesbaden, Germany, titled “A Profile of Mega-Speculator George Soros.” Research was contributed by Mark Burdman, Elisabeth Hellenbroich, Paolo Raimondi, and Scott Thompson.


    Time magazine has characterized financier George Soros as a “modern-day Robin Hood,” who robs from the rich to give to the poor countries of eastern Europe and Russia. It claimed that Soros makes huge financial gains by speculating against western central banks, in order to use his profits to help the emerging post-communist economies of eastern Europe and former Soviet Union, to assist them to create what he calls an “Open Society.” The Time statement is entirely accurate in the first part, and entirely inaccurate in the second. He robs from rich western countries, and uses his profits to rob even more savagely from the East, under the cloak of “philanthropy.” His goal is to loot wherever and however he can. Soros has been called the master manipulator of “hit-and-run capitalism.”

    As we shall see, what Soros means by “open,” is a society that allows him and his financial predator friends to loot the resources and precious assets of former Warsaw Pact economies. By bringing people like Jeffrey Sachs or Sweden’s Anders Aslund and their economic shock therapy into these economies, Soros lays the groundwork for buying up the assets of whole regions of the world at dirt-cheap prices.

    The man who broke the Bank of England?

    An examination of Soros’s secretive financial network is vital to understand the true dimension of the “Soros problem” in eastern Europe and other nations.

    Following the crisis of the European Exchange Rate Mechanism of September 1992, when the Bank of England was forced to abandon efforts to stabilize the pound sterling, a little-known financial figure emerged from the shadows, to boast that he had personally made over $1 billion in speculation against the British pound. The speculator was the Hungarian-born George Soros, who spent the war in Hungary under false papers working for the Nazi government, identifying and expropriating the property of wealthy fellow Jews. Soros left Hungary after the war, and established American citizenship after some years in London. Today, Soros is based in New York, but that tells little, if anything, of who and what he is.

    Following his impressive claims to possession of a “Midas touch,” Soros has let his name be publicly used in a blatant attempt to influence world financial markets—an out-of-character act for most financial investors, who prefer to take advantage of situations not yet discovered by rivals, and keep them secret. Soros the financier is as much a political animal, as a financial speculator.

    Soros proclaimed in March 1993, with great publicity, that the price of gold was about to rise sharply; he said that he had just gotten “inside information” that China was about to buy huge sums of gold for its booming economy. Soros was able to trigger a rush into buying gold, which caused prices to rise more than 20% over four months, to the highest level since 1991. Typically for Soros, once the fools rushed in to push prices higher, Soros and his friend Sir James Goldsmith secretly began selling their gold at a huge profit.

    Then, in early June 1993, Soros proclaimed his intent to force a sell-off in German government bonds in favor of the French, in an open letter to London Times Financial Editor Anatole Kaletsky, in which Soros proclaimed, “Down with the D-Mark!” Soros has at various times attacked the currencies of Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Mexico, coming into newly opened financial markets which have little experience with foreign investors, let alone ones with large funds like Soros. Soros begins buying stocks or bonds in the local market, leading others to naively suppose that he knows something they do not. As with gold, when the smaller investors begin to follow Soros, driving prices of stocks or whatever higher, Soros begins to sell to the eager new buyers, cashing in his 40% or 100% profits, then exiting the market, and often, the entire country, to seek another target for his speculation. This technique gave rise to the term “hit and run.” What Soros always leaves behind, is a collapsed local market and financial ruin of national investors.

    The secret of the Quantum Fund NV

    Soros is the visible side of a vast and nasty secret network of private financial interests, controlled by the leading aristocratic and royal families of Europe, centered in the British House of Windsor. This network, called by its members the Club of Isles, was built upon the wreckage of the British Empire after World War II.

    Rather than use the powers of the state to achieve their geopolitical goals, a secret cross-linked holding of private financial interests, tied to the old aristocratic oligarchy of western Europe, was developed. It was in many ways modeled on the 17th-century British and Dutch East India Companies. The heart of this Club of the Isles is the financial center of the old British Empire, the City of London. Soros is one of what in medieval days were called Hofjuden, the “Court Jews,” who were deployed by the aristocratic families.

    The most important of such “Jews who are not Jews,” are the Rothschilds, who launched Soros’s career. They are members of the Club of the Isles and retainers of the British royal family. This has been true since Amschel Rothschild sold the British Hessian troops to fight against George Washington during the American Revolution.

    Soros is American only in his passport. He is a global financial operator, who happens to be in New York, simply because “that’s where the money is,” as the bank robber Willy Sutton once quipped, when asked why he always robbed banks. Soros speculates in world financial markets through his offshore company, Quantum Fund NV, a private investment fund, or “hedge fund.” His hedge fund reportedly manages some $11-14 billion of funds on behalf of its clients, or investors—one of the most prominent of whom is, according to Soros, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, the wealthiest person in Europe.

    The Quantum Fund is registered in the tax haven of the Netherlands Antilles, in the Caribbean. This is to avoid paying taxes, as well as to hide the true nature of his investors and what he does with their money.

    In order to avoid U.S. government supervision of his financial activities, something normal U.S.-based investment funds must by law agree to in order to operate, Soros moved his legal headquarters to the Caribbean tax haven of Curacao. The Netherlands Antilles has repeatedly been cited by the Task Force on Money Laundering of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) as one of the world’s most important centers for laundering illegal proceeds of the Latin American cocaine and other drug traffic. It is a possession of the Netherlands.

    Soros has taken care that the none of the 99 individual investors who participate in his various funds is an American national. By U.S. securities law, a hedge fund is limited to no more than 99 highly wealthy individuals, so-called “sophisticated investors.” By structuring his investment company as an offshore hedge fund, Soros avoids public scrutiny.

    Soros himself is not even on the board of Quantum Fund. Instead, for legal reasons, he serves the Quantum Fund as official “investment adviser,” through another company, Soros Fund Management, of New York City. If any demand were to be made of Soros to reveal the details of Quantum Fund’s operations, he is able to claim he is “merely its investment adviser.” Any competent police investigator looking at the complex legal structure of Soros’s businesses would conclude that there is prima facie evidence of either vast money laundering of illicit funds, or massive illegal tax evasion. Both may be true.

    To make it impossible for U.S. tax authorities or other officials to look into the financial dealings of his web of businesses, the board of directors of Quantum Fund NV also includes no American citizens. His directors are Swiss, Italian, and British financiers.

    George Soros is part of a tightly knit financial mafia—“mafia,” in the sense of a closed masonic-like fraternity of families pursuing common aims. Anyone who dares to criticize Soros or any of his associates, is immediately hit with the charge of being “anti-Semitic”—-a criticism which often silences or intimidates genuine critics of Soros’s unscrupulous operations. The Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith considers it a top priority to “protect” Soros from the charges of “anti-Semites” in Hungary and elsewhere in Central Europe, according to ADL National Director Abraham Foxman. The ADL’s record of service to the British oligarchy has been amply documented by EIR (e.g. The Ugly Truth About the Anti-Defamation League [Washington, D.C., Executive Intelligence Review: 1992]).

    According to knowledgeable U.S. and European investigators, Soros’s circle includes indicted metals and commodity speculator and fugitive Marc Rich of Zug, Switzerland and Tel Aviv; secretive Israeli arms and commodity dealer Shaul Eisenberg, and “Dirty Rafi” Eytan, both linked to the financial side of the Israeli Mossad; and, the family of Jacob Lord Rothschild.

    Understandably, Soros and the Rothschild interests prefer to keep their connection hidden far from public view, so as to obscure the well-connected friends Soros enjoys in the City of London, the British Foreign Office, Israel, and the U.S. financial establishment. The myth, therefore, has been created, that Soros is a lone financial investment “genius” who, through his sheer personal brilliance in detecting shifts in markets, has become one of the world’s most successful speculators. According to those who have done business with him, Soros never makes a major investment move without sensitive insider information.

    On the board of directors of Soros’s Quantum Fund N.V. is Richard Katz, a Rothschild man who is also on the board of the London N.M. Rothschild and Sons merchant bank, and the head of Rothschild Italia S.p.A. of Milan. Another Rothschild family link to Soros’s Quantum Fund is Quantum board member Nils O. Taube, the partner of the London investment group St. James Place Capital, whose major partner is Lord Rothschild. London Times columnist Lord William Rees-Mogg is also on the board of Rothschild’s St. James Place Capital.

    A frequent business partner of Soros in various speculative deals, including in the 1993 gold manipulation, although not on the Quantum Fund directly, is the Anglo-French speculator Sir James Goldsmith, a cousin of the Rothschild family.

    >From the very first days when Soros created his own investment fund in 1969, he owed his success to his relation to the Rothschild family banking network. Soros worked in New York in the 1960s for a small private bank close to the Rothschilds, Arnhold & S. Bleichroeder, Inc., a banking family which represented Rothschild interests in Germany during Bismarck’s time. To this day, A. & S. Bleichroeder, Inc. remains the Principal Custodian, along with Citibank, of funds of Soros’s Quantum Fund. George C. Karlweiss, of Edmond de Rothschild’s Switzerland-based Banque Privee SA in Lugano, as well as of the scandal-tainted Rothschild Bank AG of Zurich, gave Soros financial backing. Karlweiss provided some of the vital initial capital and investors for Soros’s Quantum Fund.

    Union Banque Privee and the ‘Swiss connection’

    Another member of the board of Soros’s Quantum Fund is the head of one of the most controversial Swiss private banks, Edgar de Picciotto, who has been called “one of the cleverest bankers in Geneva”—and is one of the most scandal-tainted. De Picciotto, from an old Portuguese Jewish trading family, who was born in Lebanon, is head of the Geneva private bank CBI-TDB Union Bancaire Privee, a major player in the gold and offshore hedge funds business. Hedge funds have been identified by international police agencies as the fastest-growing outlet for illegal money laundering today.

    De Picciotto is a longtime friend and business associate of banker Edmond Safra, also born in Lebanon, whose family came from Aleppo, Syria, and who now controls the Republic Bank of New York. Republic Bank has been identified in U.S. investigations into Russian organized crime, as the bank involved in transferring billions of U.S. Federal Reserve notes from New York to organized crime-controlled Moscow banks, on behalf of Russian organized crime figures. Safra is under investigation by U.S. and Swiss authorities for laundering Turkish and Columbian drug money. In 1990, Safra’s Trade Development Bank (TDB) of Geneva was merged with de Picciotto’s CBI to create the CBI-TDB Union Banque Privee. The details of the merger are shrouded in secrecy to this day. As part of the deal, de Picciotto became a board member of American Express Bank (Switzerland) SA of Geneva, and two American Express Bank of New York executives sit on the board of de Picciotto’s Union Banque Privee. Safra had sold his Trade Development Bank to American Express, Inc. in the 1980s. Henry Kissinger sits on the board of American Express, Inc., which has repeatedly been implicated in international money-laundering scandals.

    De Picciotto’s start as a Geneva banker came from Nicholas Baring of the London Barings Bank, who tapped de Picciotto to run the bank’s secret Swiss bank business. Barings has for centuries been private banker to the British royal family, and since the bank’s collapse in March 1995, has been overhauled by the Dutch ING Bank, which is reported to be a major money-laundering institution.

    De Picciotto is also a longtime business partner of Venetian businessman Carlo De Benedetti, who recently was forced to resign as head of Olivetti Corp. Both persons sit on the board of the Societe Financiere de Geneve investment holding company in Geneva. De Benedetti is under investigation in Italy for suspicion of triggering the collapse of Italy’s Banco Ambrosiano in the early 1980s.The head of that bank, Roberto Calvi, was later found hanging from the London Blackfriar’s Bridge, in what police believe was a masonic ritual murder.

    De Picciotto and his Union Banque Privee have been implicated in numerous drug and illegal money-laundering operations. In November 1994, U.S. federal agents arrested a senior official of de Picciotto’s Geneva bank, Jean-Jacques Handali, along with two other UBP officials, on charges of leading a multimillion-dollar drug-money-laundering ring. According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami, Handali and Union Banque Privee were the “Swiss connection” in an international drug-money-laundering ring tied to Colombian and Turkish cocaine and heroin organizations. A close business and political associate of de Picciotto is a mysterious arm dealer, Helmut Raiser, who is linked in business dealings with reputed Russian organized crime kingpin Grigori Luchansky, who controls the Russian and Swiss holding company Nordex Group.

    Another director of Soros’s Quantum Fund is Isodoro Albertini, owner of the Milan stock brokerage firm Albertini and Co. Beat Notz of the Geneva Banque Worms is another private banker on the board of Soros’s Quantum Fund, as is Alberto Foglia, who is chief of the Lugano, Switzerland Banca del Ceresio. Lugano, just across the Swiss border from Milan, is notorious as the financial secret bank haven for Italian organized crime families, including the heroin mafia behind the 1980s “Pizza Connection” case. The Banca del Ceresio has been one of the secret Swiss banks identified in the recent Italian political corruption scandals as the repository of bribe funds of several Italian politicians now in prison.

    The sponsorship of the Rothschilds

    Soros’s relation to the Rothschild finance circle represents no ordinary or casual banking connection. It goes a long way to explain the extraordinary success of a mere private speculator, and Soros’s uncanny ability to “gamble right” so many times in such high-risk markets. Soros has access to the “insider track” in some of the most important government and private channels in the world.

    Since World War II, the Rothschild family, at the heart of the financial apparatus of the Club of the Isles, has gone to great lengths to create a public myth about its own insignificance. The family has spent significant sums cultivating a public image as a family of wealthy, but quiet, “gentlemen,” some of whom prefer to cultivate fine French wines, some of whom are devoted to charity.

    Since British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour wrote his famous November 1917 letter to Lord Rothschild, expressing official British government backing for establishment of a Palestinian national home for the Jewish people, the Rothschilds were intimately involved in the creation of Israel. But behind their public facade of a family donating money for projects such as planting trees in the deserts of Israel, N.M. Rothschild of London is at the center of various intelligence operations, and more than once has been linked to the more unsavory elements of international organized crime. The family prefers to keep such links at arm’s length, and away from its London headquarters, via its lesser-known outposts such as their Zurich Rothschild Bank AG and Rothschild Italia of Milan, the bank of Soros partner Richard Katz.

    N.M. Rothschild is considered by City of London sources to be one of the most influential parts of the British intelligence establishment, tied to the Thatcher “free market” wing of the Tory Party. Rothschild and Sons made huge sums managing for Thatcher the privatization of billions of dollars of British state industry holdings during the 1980s, and today, for John Major’s government. Rothschilds is also at the very heart of the world gold trade, being the bank at which twice daily the London Gold Fix is struck by a group of the five most influential gold trade banks. Gold constitutes a major part of the economy of drug dealings globally.

    N.M. Rothschild and Sons is also implicated in some of the filthiest drugs-for-weapons secret intelligence operations. Because it is connected to the highest levels of the British intelligence establishment, Rothschilds managed to evade any prominent mention of its complicity in one of the more sordid black covert intelligence networks, that of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI). Rothschilds was at the center of the international web of money-laundering banks used during the 1970s and 1980s by Britain’s MI-6 and the networks of Col. Oliver North and George Bush, to finance such projects as the Nicaraguan Contras.

    On June 8, 1993 the chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives’ Committee on Banking, Rep. Henry Gonzalez (D-Tex.), made a speech charging that the U.S. government, under the previous Bush and Reagan administrations, had systematically refused to prosecute the BCCI, and that the Department of Justice had repeatedly refused to cooperate with Congressional investigations of both the BCCI scandal and what Gonzalez claims is the closely related scandal of the Atlanta, Georgia Banca Nationale del Lavoro, which was alleged to have secured billions in loans from the Bush administration to Saddam Hussein, just prior to the Gulf War of 1990-91.

    Gonzalez charged that the Bush administration had “a Justice Department that I say, and I repeat, has been the most corrupt, most unbelievably corrupt justice system that I have seen in the 32 years I have been in the Congress.”

    The BCCI violated countless laws, including laundering drug money, financing illegal arms traffic, and falsifying bank records. In July 1991, New York District Attorney Robert Morgenthau announced a grand jury indictment against BCCI, charging it with having committed “the largest bank fraud in world financial history. BCCI operated as a corrupt criminal organization throughout its entire 19-year history.”

    The BCCI had links directly into the Bush White House. Saudi Sheik Kamal Adham, a BCCI director and former head of Saudi Arabian intelligence when George Bush was head of the CIA, was one of the BCCI shareholders indicted in the United States. Days after his indictment, former top Bush White House aide Edward Rogers went to Saudi Arabia as a private citizen to sign a contract to represent Sheikh Adham in the United States.

    — continued in part 2 — — continued from part 1 —

    But, what has never been identified in a single major Western press investigation, was that the Rothschild group was at the heart of the vast illegal web of BCCI. The key figure was Dr. Alfred Hartmann, the managing director of the BCCI Swiss subsidiary, Banque de Commerce et de Placement SA; at the same time, he ran the Zurich Rothschild Bank AG, and sat in London as a member of the board of N.M. Rothschild and Sons, Hartmann was also a business partner of Helmut Raiser, friend of de Picciotto, and linked to Nordex.

    Hartmann was also chairman of the Swiss affiliate of the Italian BNL bank, which was implicated in the Bush administration illegal transfers to Iraq prior to the 1990 Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. The Atlanta branch of BNL, with the knowledge of George Bush when he was vice president, conduited funds to Helmut Raiser’s Zug, Switzerland company, Consen, for development of the CondorII missile program by Iraq, Egypt, and Argentina, during the Iran-Iraq War. Hartmann was vice-chairman of another secretive private Geneva bank, the Bank of NY-Inter-Maritime Bank, a bank whose chairman, Bruce Rappaport, was one of the illegal financial conduits for Col. Oliver North’s Contra drugs-for-weapons network during the late 1980. North also used the BCCI as one of his preferred banks to hide his illegal funds.

    Rich, Reichmann, and Soros’s Israeli links

    According to reports of former U.S. State Department intelligence officers familiar with the Soros case, Soros’s Quantum Fund amassed a war chest of well over $10 billion, with the help of a powerful group of “silent” investors who let Soros deploy the capital to demolish European monetary stability in September 1992.

    Among Soros’s silent investors, these sources say, are the fugitive metals and oil trader Marc Rich, based in Zug, Switzerland; and Shaul Eisenberg, a decades-long member of Israeli Mossad intelligence, who functions as a major arms merchant throughout Asia and the Near East. Eisenberg was recently banned from doing business in Uzbekistan, where he had been accused by the government of massive fraud and corruption. A third Soros partner is Israel’s “Dirty Rafi” Eytan, who served in London previously as Mossad liaison to British intelligence.

    Rich was one of the most active western traders in oil, aluminum, and other commodities in the Soviet Union and Russia between 1989 and 1993. This, not coincidentally, is just the period when Grigori Luchansky’s Nordex Group became a multibillion-dollar company selling Russian oil, aluminum, and other commodities.

    Canadian real estate entrepreneur Paul Reichmann, formerly of Olympia and York notoriety, a Hungarian-born Jew like Soros, is a business partner in Soros’s Quantum Realty, a $525-million real estate investment fund.

    The Reichmann tie links Soros as well with Henry Kissinger and former Tory Foreign Minister Lord Carrington (who is also a member of Kissinger Associates, Inc. of New York). Reichmann sits with both Kissinger and Carrington on the board of the influential British-Canadian publishing group, Hollinger, Inc. Hollinger owns a large number of newspapers in Canada and the United States, the London Daily Telegraph, and the largest English-language daily in Israel, the Jerusalem Post. Hollinger has been attacking President Clinton and the Middle East peace process ever since Clinton’s election in November 1992.

    Soros and geopolitics

    Soros is little more than one of several significant vehicles for economic and financial warfare by the Club of the Isles faction. Because his affiliations to these interests have not previously been spotlighted, he serves extremely useful functions for the oligarchy, as in 1992 and 1993, when he launched his attack on the European Rate Mechanism.

    Although Soros’s speculation played a role in finally taking the British pound out of the ERM currency group entirely, it would be a mistake to view that action as “anti-British.” Soros went for the first time to London, where he studied under Karl Popper and Friedrich von Hayek at the London School of Economics.

    Soros’s business ties to Sir James Goldsmith and Lord Rothschild place him in the inner circles of the Thatcher wing of the British establishment. By helping the “anti-Europe” Thatcherites pull Britain out of the ERM in September 1992 (and making more than $1 billion in the process at British taxpayer expense), Soros helped the long-term goal of the Thatcherites in weakening continental Europe’s economic stability. Since 1904 , it has been British geopolitical strategy to prevent by all means any successful economic linkage between western continental European economies, especially that of Germany, with Russia and the countries of eastern Europe.

    Soros’s personal outlook is consonant with that of the Thatcher wing of the Tory Party, those who three years ago launched the “Germany, the Fourth Reich” hate campaign against unified Germany, comparing Chancellor Helmut Kohl with Adolf Hitler. Soros is personally extremely anti-German. In his 191 autobiography, Underwriting Democracy, Soros warned that a reunited Germany would “upset the balance of Europe …. It is easy to see how the interwar scenario could be replayed. A united Germany becomes the strongest economic power and develops Eastern Europe as its Lebensraum … a potent witches’ brew.” Soros’s recent public attacks on the German economy and the deutsche mark are fundamentally motivated by this geopolitical view.

    Soros is quite close to the circles of George Bush in the U.S. intelligence community and finance. His principal bank custodian, and reputed major lender in the 1992 assault on Europe’s ERM, is Citicorp NA, the nation’s largest bank. Citicorp is more than a lending institution; it is a core part of the American liberal establishment. In 1989, as it became clear that German unification was a real possibility, a senior official at Citicorp, a former adviser to Michael Dukakis’s Presidential campaign, told a European business associate that “German unity will be a disaster for our interests; we must take measures to ensure a sharp D-Mark collapse on the order of 30%, so that she will not have the capability to reconstruct East Germany into the economic engine of a new Europe.”

    While Soros was calling on world investors to pull down the deutsche mark in 1993, he had been making a strong play in the French media, since late 1992, to portray himself as a “friend of French interests.” Soros is reported to be close to senior figures of the French establishment, the Treasury, and in particular, Bank of France head Jean-Claude Trichet. In effect, Soros is echoing the old Entente Cordiale alliance against Germany, which helped precipitate World War 1.

    Soros admits that he survived in Nazi Hungary during the war, as a Jew, by adopting what he calls a double personality. “I have lived with a double personality practically all my life,” Soros recently stated. “It started at age fourteen in Hungary, when I assumed a false identity in order to escape persecution as a Jew.” Soros admitted in a radio interview that his father gave him Nazi credentials in Hungary during the war, and he looted wealthy Jewish estates. Further research showed that this operation was probably run by the SS.

    Soros did not leave the country until two years after the war. Though he and his friends in the media are quick to attack any policy opponent of Soros, especially in eastern Europe, as being “anti-Semitic,” Soros’s Jewish identity apparently has only utilitarian value for him, rather than providing moral foundations. In short, the young Soros was a cynical, ambitious person, the ideal recruit for the British postwar intelligence network.

    Soros savages eastern Europe

    Soros has established no fewer than 19 “charitable” foundations across eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. He has sponsored “peace” concerts in former Yugoslavia with such performers as Joan Baez. He is helping send young east Europeans to Oxford University. A model citizen, is the image he broadcasts.

    The reality is something else. Soros has been personally responsible for introducing shock therapy into the emerging economies of eastern Europe since 1989. He has deliberately fostered on fragile new governments in the east the most draconian economic madness, policies which have allowed Soros and his financial predator friends, such as Marc Rich and Shaul Eisenberg, to loot the resources of large parts of eastern Europe at dirt-cheap prices. Here are illustrative case histories of Soros’s eastern “charity”:

    Poland: In late 1989, Soros organized a secret meeting between the “reform” communist government of Prime Minister Mieczyslaw Rakowski and the leaders of the then-illegal Solidarnosc trade union organization. According to well-informed Polish sources, at that 1989 meeting, Soros unveiled his “plan” for Poland: The communists must let Solidarnosc take over the government, so as to gain the confidence of the population. Then, said Soros, the state must act to bankrupt its own industrial and agricultural enterprises, using astronomical interest rates, withholding state credits, and burdening firms with unpayable debt. Once thie were done, Soros promised that he would encourage his wealthy international business friends to come into Poland, as prospective buyers of the privatized state enterprises. A recent example of this privatization plan is the case of the large steel facility Huta Warsawa. According to steel experts, this modern complex would cost $3-4 billion for a western company to build new. Several months ago, the Polish government agreed to assume the debts of Huta Warsawa, and to sell the debt-free enterprise to a Milan company, Lucchini, for $30 million!.

    Soros recruited his friend, Harvard University economist Jeffery Sachs, who had previously advised the Bolivian government in economic policy, leading to the takeover of that nation’s economy by the cocaine trade. To further his plan in Poland, Soros set up one of his numerous foundations, the Stefan Batory Foundation, the official sponsor of Sach’s work in Poland in 1989-90.

    Soros boasts, “I established close personal contact with Walesa’s chief adviser, Bronislaw Geremek. I was also received by [President Gen Wojciech] Jaruzelski, the head of State, to obtain his blessing for my foundation.” He worked closely with the eminence gris of Polish shock therapy, Witold Trzeciakowski, a shadow adviser to Finance Minister Leszek Balcerowicz. Soros also cultivated relations with Balcerowicz, the man who would first impose Sach’s shock therapy on Poland. Soros says when Walesa was elected President, that “largely because of western pressure, Walesa retained Balcerowicz as minister.” Balcerowicz imposed a freeze on wages while industry was to be bankrupted by a cutoff of state credits. Industrial output fell by more than 30% over two years.

    Soros admits he knew in advance that his shock therapy would cause huge unemployment, closing of factories, and social unrest. For this reason, he insisted that Solidarnosc be brought into the government, to help deal with the unrest. Through the Batory Foundation, Soros coopted key media opinion makers such as Adam Michnik, and through cooperation with the U.S. Embassy in Warsaw, imposed a media censorship favorable to Soros’s shock therapy, and hostile to all critics.

    Russia and the Community of Independent States (CIS): Soros headed a delegation to Russia, where he had worked together with Raisa Gorbachova since the late 1980s, to establish the Cultural Initiative Foundation. As with his other “charitable foundations,” this was a tax-free vehicle for Soros and his influential Western friends to enter the top policymaking levels of the country, and for tiny sums of scarce hard currency, but up important political and intellectual figures. After a false start under Mikhail Gorbachov in 1988-91, Soros shifted to the new Yeltsin circle. It was Soros who introduced Jeffery Sachs and shock therapy into Russia, in late 1991. Soros describes his effort: “I started mobilizing a group of economists to take to the Soviet Union (July 1990). Professor Jeffery Sachs, with whom I had worked in Poland, was ready and eager to participate. He suggested a number of other participants: Romano Prodi from Italy; David Finch, a retired official from the IMF [International Monetary Fund]. I wanted to include Stanley Fischer and Jacob Frenkel, heads of research of the World Bank and IMF, respectively; Larry Summers from Harvard and Michael Bruno of the Central Bank of Israel.”

    Since Jan. 2, 1992, shock therapy has introduced chaos and hyperinflation into Russia. Irreplaceable groups from advanced scientific research institutes have fled in pursuit of jobs in the West. Yegor Gaidar and the Yeltsin government imposed draconian cuts in state spending to industry and agriculture, even though the entire economy was state-owned. A goal of a zero deficit budget within three months was announced. Credit to industry was ended, and enterprises piled up astronomical debts, as inflation of the ruble went out of control.

    The friends of Soros lost no time in capitalizing on this situation. Marc Rich began buying Russian aluminum at absurdly cheap prices, with his hard currency. Rich then dumped the aluminum onto western industrial markets last year, causing a 30% collapse in the price of the metal, as western industry had no way to compete. There was such an outflow of aluminum last year from Russia, that there were shortages of aluminum for Russian fish canneries. At the same time, Rich reportedly moved in to secure export control over the supply of most West Siberian crude oil to western markets. Rich’s companies have been under investigation for fraud in Russia, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal of May 13, 1993.

    Another Soros silent partner who has moved in to exploit the chaos in the former Soviet Union, is Shaul Eisenberg. Eisenberg, reportedly with a letter of introduction from then-European Bank chief Jacques Attali, managed to secure an exclusive concession for textiles and other trade in Uzbekistan. When Uzbek officials confirmed defrauding of the government by Eisenberg, his concessions were summarily abrogated. The incident has reportedly caused a major loss for Israeli Mossad strategic interests throughout the Central Asian republics.

    Soros has extensive influence in Hungary. When nationalist opposition parliamentarian Istvan Csurka tried to protest what was being done to ruin the Hungarian economy, under the policies of Soros and friends, Csurka was labeled an “anti-Semite,” and in June 1993, he was forced out of the governing Democratic Forum, as a result of pressure from Soros-linked circles in Hungary and abroad, including Soros’s close friend, U.S. Rep. Tom Lantos.

    Lighting the Balkan Fuse

    In early 1990, in what was then still Yugoslavia, Soros’s intervention with shock therapy, in cooperation with the IMF, helped light the economic fuse that led to the outbreak of war in June 1991. Soros boasted at that time, “Yugoslavia is a particularly interesting case. Even as national rivalries have brought the country to the verge of a breakup, a radical monetary stabilization program, which was introduced on the same date as in Poland—January 1, 1990—–has begun to change the political landscape. The program is very much along the Polish lines, and it had greater initial success. By the middle of the year, people were beginning to think Yugoslav again.”

    Soros is friends with former Deputy Secretary of State Lawrence Eagleburger, the former U.S. ambassador to Belgrade and the patron of Serbian Communist leader Slobodan Milosevic. Eagleburger is a past president of Kissinger Associates, on whose board sits Lord Carrington, whose Balkan mediations supported Serbian aggression into Croatia and Bosnia.

    Today, Soros has established his Foundation centers in Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia, and a Soros Yugoslavia Foundation in Belgrade, Serbia. In Croatia, he has tried to use his foundation monies to woo influential journalists or to slander opponents of his shock therapy, by labeling them variously “anti-Semitic” or “neo-Nazi.” The head of Soros’s Open Society Fund—Croatia, Prof. Zarko Puhovski, is a man who has reportedly made a recent dramatic conversion from orthodox Marxism to Soros’s radical free market. Only seven years ago, according to one of his former students, as professor of philosophy at the University of Zagreb, Puhovski attacked students trying to articulate a critique of communism, by insisting, “It is unprincipled to criticize Marxism from a liberal standpoint.” His work for the Soros Foundation in Zagreb has promoted an anti-nationalist “global culture,” hiring a network of anti-Croatian journalists to propagandize, in effect, for the Serbian cause.

    These examples can be elaborated for each of the other 19 locations across eastern Europe where George Soros operates. The political agenda of Soros and this group of financial “globalists” will create the conditions for a new outbreak of war, even world war, if it continues to be tolerated. st it.

  78. How is it a pro soros article?


    No disrespect to you confloyd. You are a valued poster and do high value you research bringing it here.

    Granted, the information in the article is informative. However, it’s an article that would bring a smile to George Soros’s lips. He’s a Robin Hood, indeed… exactly how he admires himself every morning when he looks in the mirror. The author barely takes a swipe at him rather he soft peddle’s the beast as wealthy businessman with plenty of clout.

  79. I know he probably liked the first three paragraphs, but in the end it takes about the wars he has causes and how he might just cause a World War. It also talks about how he used antisemitism to his reward as he is counseling Obama to do. I just want to draw the paralell. Wbboei talked about this months ago and I told him I would try and find the article that explained how Soros uses his Jewessness to call people anti semites. Its the same shock therapy that he used on these countries that he is now using on us.

    I meant no disrespect either Mrs. Smith, I always value your input. The people on this blog are like family and I value each and every one of you.

  80. I could post the one on Rense, but it is so hateful and far out, people won’t believe it. I think this author told the story with a small slight to Soros, but let the reader draw their own conclusion. I did not need to be convinced of his evilness, I just needed an account of exactly what he does, and this author did just that.

  81. Seattle philanthropist and venture capitalist Cynthia Stroum
    I know her mom and knew her dad who is dead now. Billionaires.

  82. Good confloyd, we are of like minds.

    Maybe we’ve only advanced one step towards identifying the enemy. But it’s an important first step.
    Obama is a problem but he has to be viewed for what he is… a working man trying to earn a dollar for his boss. eh!

    For now, Our job is to see to it Obama’s work agenda for producing another Soros empire never happens. And that we can only do one brick at a time. However, for now it wouldn’t hurt to meditate on Soros failure until the right opportunity arises where we can do some good.

    Obama’s numbers are falling daily. Congress thinks they are going to pass a health care plan for him (Soros).. that is a big NO.. and you were right when you noticed how last weeks protest was a big surprise to (Soros) Obama.

    Soros isn’t any more American than Obama is… The two of them are up against the best of us! We are Americans. We never give-up and never give in… we never quit!

  83. Here’s another shocker for you:
    FLASH! Tom Brokaw Involved in Soros-Funded Charity that Funds ACORN
    By Matthew Vadum (Bio | Archive)
    October 17, 2008 – 00:17 ET

    “Meet the Press” interim moderator Tom Brokaw sits on the board of a liberal foundation that has given radical left-wing group ACORN $821,000 and that in turn is funded by liberal uber-donor George Soros, research reveals.

    Conservatives have long considered Brokaw’s political views to be somewhere on the left, but these revelations raise new questions about the former NBC News anchor’s objectivity.

    Here are the facts.

    Brokaw sits on the board of the Robin Hood Foundation, a charity that, according to its website, targets poverty in New York City by applying “sound investment principles to philanthropy.” The foundation awarded ACORN a $456,000 grant in 2003 and a $365,000 grant in 2004. Brokaw does not appear to have played a role in the grants because he didn’t become a member of the board until 2005 according to the database, but these are nevertheless the left-wing circles in which he travels.

    The Soros Fund Charitable Foundation, as in George Soros, a major bankroller of the left, gave the Robin Hood Foundation a $9,859,453 community development grant in 2000.

    The Robin Hood board includes Marian Wright Edelman, president of one of Hillary Clinton’s favorite activist groups, the Children’s Defense Fund. Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and actress Gwyneth Paltrow are also members of the b

    Well I wonder if we should send this stuff to Palin,


    My hope is that she gets her own show on Fox News. She would be an invaluable ally for us. In time she could really be a great help to stopping the hostile takeover of our country by a deranged billionaire who had enough money to buy himself a US President.

    everyone has a price tag.. almost…

    The Clintons told him to stick-it.

    How much is that worth? 🙂

    my kinda people!

  86. Did you hear about Carter’s comments? I am angry (he said people who are opposing Obama do so because of his race).
    I voted for Jimmy Carter in 1976 and Ronald Reagan in 1980. I have watched Carter deteriorate over the years, into what I perceive to be an embittered and simple minded man. He is a guilt ridden southerner. His attitude toward Israel is almost maniacal. I pay zero attention to him now for those reasons. His treatment of Hillary was unconscionable. This is quite a fall from grace for someone who was once a capable submarine officer, and favorite of one of my favorite wonderful crazies Admiral Richover who is famous for the line pay careful attention to other people’s mistakes. You may not live long enough to commit all of them yourself. Also, he was fond of making naval officers sit in broom closets when they gave dumb answers to his even dumber questions. I had lunch a few weeks ago with the man who forced him to step down. Sixty four years in uniform is a long time. But he was the father of the nuclear navy, and is probably responsible for the fact that we averted World War III.

  87. The Rothschild fortune was created by betting on the outcome of the Battle of Waterloo. The family emigrated to London from France and the patriarch became active on the London Exchange. He acquired a reputation as a shrewd investor and a market maker. In addition he had a fine flock of carrier pigeons or doves which were dispatched to him with the results of the battle so he knew before anyone else did that Wellington won. During the black out period when he knew but nobody else did he made a small bet on Napoleon. All other investors followed suit. Meanwhile, he had his people there to place long shot bets on Wellington which the investors who believed they knew the score gladly covered. Later however the results came in and much of the wealth on the Exchange ended up in Baron Rothschild’s pocket. Then as now, etc.

  88. Just as we figured the pushing around of Bush and Cheney recently by this administration is astroturf.

    Show trials for Soros

    Mathew Vadum:

    The so-called Commission on Accountability which mysteriously appeared on the political scene a few days ago to push for show trials related to War on Terror interrogation policies is a PR hoax created by liberal philanthropist George Soros and political operatives sympathetic to the Obama administration.

    The push is part of a vindictive campaign to pay back the architects of the War on Terror for making a good faith effort to defend America

    To some the arrival of the Commission on Accountability, with its 19 member groups including Amnesty International USA and Human Rights Watch, suggested a significant groundswell of support in the nonprofit activist community for the proposed creation of an independent, non-partisan commission to examine the treatment of captured suspected terrorists. These groups all want Bush administration officials investigated for doing their jobs.

    But the Napoleonic plotter Charles Maurice de Talleyrand’s eternal aphorism that treason is a matter of dates is not lost on today’s left, which, having recaptured the White House and Congress, now wants to pay back the architects of the War on Terror for daring to defend America from Islamist totalitarians.

    Alas, this spanking new David Axelrod-style astroturf group was manufactured by Soros himself and Obama loyalists.

    The proof was surprisingly easy to find.

    That’s because the domain name registration record for the group’s website indicates near the bottom that the site was reserved for George Soros. It also indicates it was registered by Blue State Digital, LLC.

    A BusinessWeek profile in June of last year identified Soros as a Blue State Digital client since 2006 and called the firm then-candidate Obama’s “secret weapon.” The firm was described as “a market research-New Media hybrid that has played an instrumental role in fostering Obamamania.” Although the Obama campaign refused to discuss the firm for the article, Blue State Digital boasted that “its handiwork and technology can be seen in the more than $200 million Obama has raised online, the 2 million phone calls made on the candidate’s behalf, and in’s social network of 850,000 users, who have organized 50,000 campaign events.”

    The profile also noted that the firm was founded in 2004 by four former members of Howard Dean’s presidential campaign. “But Thomas Gensemer, a former venture capitalist who, at 31, is now Blue State’s managing partner, says he and his associates wanted to use such tools to mobilize grassroots support for progressive candidates, causes, or products,” the profile states.

    Blue State Digital was “tightly entwined with the campaign,” BusinessWeek reported. “Joe Rospars, a 27-year-old partner, attends all of the Obama campaign’ senior staff meetings, says Gensemer. Campaign insiders suggest privately that Blue State has so impressed Obama that, if he wins in November, the company could be in the unique position to play a role inside the White House.”


    Moreover, at least eight of the 19 left-leaning institutional members of the Commission on Accountability are funded by the secretive Soros.

    There is much more.

    The Soros ideology is one that seeks to weaken the US and push the evils of liberalism. His ability to fun these evil objectives has given the left an advantage over the last four years. It is something that conservatives have to overcome to become competitive again. The first thing we must do is challenge groups like this. The best way to do so is to overwhelm them with facts in the mainstream media to the point that it can not be ignored.

    We should also make clear that these organizations are set up to punish the patriots who defended us from the terrorist

  89. hat’s because the domain name registration record for the group’s website indicates near the bottom that the site was reserved for George Soros. It also indicates it was registered by Blue State Digital, LLC.

    A BusinessWeek profile in June of last year identified Soros as a Blue State Digital client since 2006 and called the firm then-candidate Obama’s “secret weapon.” The firm was described as “a market research-New Media hybrid that has played an instrumental role in fostering Obamamania.” Although the Obama campaign refused to discuss the firm for the article, Blue State Digital boasted that “its handiwork and technology can be seen in the more than $200 million Obama has raised online, the 2 million phone calls made on the candidate’s behalf, and in’s social network of 850,000 users, who have organized 50,000 campaign events.”
    I was on to these people a week ago and posted some stuff about them here. They are also involved in the Brazilian elections where Soros is speculating on oil.

  90. Mrs. SMith you should look up Blue State Digital on the net and thumb thru their different pages, its Obama, Kennedy, and Richardson and the DNC. Its corrupt.

  91. To show the difference in crowds between the tea party last saturday in DC and the million man march and Martin Luther Kings I have a dream speech, go to “no Its why Obama is on every show he can get on right now, and I bet Soros is doing somemore speculating to screw up the country.

    I especially enjoyed one poster in DC this weekend with a sign that read : IMPEACH the real President George Soros! Now that is a sign that needs to be shown worldwide in every market.

  92. BlueStateDigital is supposed to be run by Soros according to one article I read, but apparently it has something to do with Axelrove.

  93. Here is a bit of info on Obama/Soros new deals:
    What Obama wouldn’t fund with $2B in loan guaranteesposted at 4:45 pm on August 20, 2009 by Ed Morrissey
    Share on Facebook | printer-friendly Earlier this week, we found out what kind of energy production Barack Obama likes to support when he offered $2 billion in loans and guarantees to Brazilian oil producer Petrobras to drill off Brazil’s shores — while supporting a moratorium on offshore drilling in the US. Coincidentally, Obama had the opportunity to offer the exact same amount of money to an American company for energy production just three weeks earlier. Did they get the cash for their zero-emission energy industry venture? Apparently, George Soros didn’t invest in USEC:
    Bethesda-based USEC on Tuesday accused President Obama of reneging on a campaign pledge after the Energy Department turned down the company’s request for $2 billion in loan guarantees for a new uranium enrichment project in Piketon, Ohio.
    USEC, which operates the nation’s only uranium enrichment facility, said it would “demobilize” the new project, which it said could not obtain private financing without the federal loan guarantee. The company has already spent $1.5 billion on what it calls the American Centrifuge Plant, but USEC says the final price tag could reach $3.5 billion, 1 1/2 times as much as it estimated two years ago.
    “We are shocked and disappointed by DOE’s decision,” USEC chief executive John K. Welch said in a statement. “President Obama promised to support the loan guarantee for the American Centrifuge Plant while he campaigned in Ohio. We are disappointed that campaign commitment has not been met.”
    Let’s make this clear. Obama found $2 billion in the depleted Treasury to fund an expansion of oil production in Brazil, despite both his opposition to American offshore drilling and to increasing reliance on fossil fuels. However, he cannot find any money to keep a promise to support nuclear energy in the US by keeping the USEC plant in operation in Ohio, a state that will get hammered by his cap-and-trade proposal. The denial will set back the introduction of nuclear energy that could replace some of the coal-based electrical power generated in Ohio and elsewhere.
    The DoE says that the USEC project has not reached the readiness stage required for funding. However, the same is true of the project that Obama’s funding in Brazil. In fact, investors (other than Soros) wonder whether the state-owned and state-run Petrobras is really up to the task of properly exploiting the find, despite the leftist government’s campaign of supporting Petrobras control of it. The extraction of the coastal find is still in the planning stages, whereas the USEC facility is much closer to production. Yet the US has no use for American energy even as it subsidizes Brazil’s government-owned oil production.
    What’s the difference that pushed Obama towards Petrobras and away from USEC? Because from here, it just looks like George

  94. Jon Stewart just nailed Big Media over their non-coverage of the ACORN story. Even showed some undercover videos. Wow.

  95. Would this be called insider trading???
    Who else besides Obama has taken an interest in Petrobras? Hmmmmmm:
    His New York-based hedge-fund firm, Soros Fund Management LLC, sold 22 million U.S.-listed common shares of Petrobras, as the Brazilian oil company is known, according to a filing today with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Soros bought 5.8 million of the company’s U.S.-traded preferred shares.
    Soros is taking advantage of the spread between the two types of U.S.-listed Petrobras shares, said Luis Maizel, president of LM Capital Group LLC, which manages about $4 billion. The common shares were 21 percent more expensive than preferred today, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. …
    Petrobras preferred shares have also a 10 percent additional dividend, said William Landers, a senior portfolio manager for Latin America at Blackrock Inc.
    “Given that there will most likely never be a change in control in the company, I see no reason to pay a higher price for the common shares.” Brazil’s government controls Petrobras and has a majority stake of voting shares.
    This story is from last Friday. Is it a coincidence that Obama backer George Soros repositioned himself in Petrobras to get dividends just a few days before Obama committed $2 billion in loans and guarantees for Petrobras’ offshore operations? Hmmmmmmmmmm

    George Soros’ Unholy Alliance with ACORN
    What if a corrupt far left billionaire got together with a corrupt but effective grassroots group in an effort to radically change America ? That’s exactly what’s happening between George Soros and ACORN. Think of ACORN as instruments of George Soros grand plan. Soros wants to elect far left candidates, pass universal health care, props up the unions among many liberal ideological goals. Think of ACORN is the tool of implementation of his ideology, or at least a tool. On top of this, every policy which Soros uses ACORN to implement also helps President Obama. That’s the stakes in this unholy alliance.

    For instance, ACORN has an affiliate named Project VOTE. It’s an organization that specializes in GOTV campaigns. Of course, the scam is that this group only goes into areas of the sort of candidate that Soros likes. So, while Project Vote does in fact do voter registration drives they do them almost exclusively in poor, African American neighborhoods. In other words, they would only do voter registration in neighborhoods that would back candidates that Soros would also back. Of course, Soros would never give money to ACORN directly. In fact, here, one of his own affiliates Democracy Alliance, gives money to Project Vote, itself an ACORN affiliate.

    Whenever Soros does business it’s like this. The reason for this is that the world that both Soros and ACORN inhabit is a maze of tax codes. 501 (C)3, 501 (C)4, and Soros favorite 527 among dozens. Each has its own rule for disclosure. The more tax benefits a non profit organization the more it has to disclose. By both Soros and ACORN creating multiple affiliate organizations it’s nearly impossible to track the money. As it moves from one affiliate to another eventually outside folks aren’t allowed to see all their records.
    (O’Reilly’s now famous diagram of Soros affiliates)

    This way all sorts of shenanigans can go on without enough of a paper trail to prove it. There are stories that have reported that Soros was behind, what they call a rigged recount and he used ACORN in just such a way to do it in Minnesota for Al Franken. Of course, it goes without saying that Franken accounts for the 60th and filibuster proof vote in the Senate

    Another way that Soros uses ACORN is in the area of universal health care. Here, the two form an alliance along with several other far left groups called Health Care for America Now. A Politico story recently characterized HCAN as “the groups that represent the base of the Democratic Party”.on the issue of health care. One of the biggest donors in HCAN is the Tides foundation. That’s another Soros affiliate. Meanwhile ACORN is one of a group of more than a dozen different organizations that created HCAN. HCAN runs as a 501 (c)4. Here are all the principles involved in creating this organization.

    ACORN, AFL-CIO, AFSCME, AFT, Americans United for Change, Campaign for
    America’s Future, Center for American Progress Action Fund, Campaign for Community Change, Children’s Defense Fund Action Council, Communications Workers of America, International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace & Agricultural Implement Workers of America (UAW),, NAACP, National
    Council of La Raza, National Education Association, National Women’s Law
    Center, SEIU, UFCW, USAction, Women’s Voices, Women’s Vote and Working

    (Of course, you should notice other liberal icons in this group like La Raza, the SEIU,and This group is now organizing advertisement campaigns against wavering Democrats like Mary Landrieu. They hold rallies, organize town halls, and make phone calls among many different other support activities in order to get universal health care passed. (four minutes into this video in front of HCAN, Congress Woman Jan Schakowski admits that the goal of universal health care is single payer)

    Meanwhile, the guy that runs the Tides Foundation is a gentleman named Drummond Pike. He’s close personal friends with Wade Rathke. Wade Rathke was the long time CEO of ACORN who was removed last summer because he covered up the embezzlement of his brother Dale. When this embezzlement was first made public, Wade turned the embezzlement into a loan and then sold said loan to Pike. As such, ACORN no longer owned the paper on what was owed. It’s one of the perks for ACORN of having wealthy and powerful friends. It’s no different than the quid pro quo they got from Bruce Ratner, owner of the Nets, to build a new stadium in Brooklyn.

    Soros is also a supporter of the unions through his involvement with the SEIU. The SEIU contributes funds to Soros linked organizations, does GOTV activities, and any other grass roots activites for liberal causes. Of course, the local New Orleans 100 SEIU is run and was created by Wade Rathke. Yes, that’s the same Wade Rathke that used to run ACORN. Furthermore, ACORN members often belong to the SEIU as well. The SEIU often uses ACORN to organize Alinsky like demonstrations in order to pressure hospitals, grocery stores, and other places of business to unionize.

    Then, there’s George Soros’ good friends Herb and Marion Sandler. They created the Sub Prime Mortgage Company Golden West. They sold it to Wachovia for $24 billion in 2006. It ultimately lead to the demise of Wachovia. The Sandlers contribute a great deal to an organization called the Center for Responsive Lending. This organization was a champion for Community Reinvestment Act, which championed quotas for bank’s mortgage lending an poorer areas. ACORN used this very CRA in order to perpetuate campaigns of intimidation on bankers in order to get them to comply with the CRA. The Center for Responsive Lending funded a lot of ACORN’s CRA activities.

    There are several things everyone should know. First, at all times their connections are loose and so difficult to track. Second, ironically, all of these connections are made that much easier by McCain/Feingold. In fact, it’s not too far a stretch to say that McCain was used as a pawn by George Soros in creating the shadow government that Soros uses. After all, shadowy groups like 501 (c)3’s and 527’s would have much less power without McCain/Feingold. Now, Soros has a community organizing group to advance the agenda of a President, himself a former community organizer. Under no circumstances should we ever underestimate George Soros.

  97. This is fun.

    Beck has apparently 48 hours of video on Acorn and has shown just 2 hours already.

    Somones gonna crap themselves.

  98. 5th Acorn video from a border state will be released on Hannity tomorrow night

    Ooooh! I hope it’s some state that screwed Hillary over.

  99. The Robin Hood board includes Marian Wright Edelman, president of one of Hillary Clinton’s favorite activist groups, the Children’s Defense Fund.


    Then maybe condeming everyone connected with ‘Robin Hood’ is absurdum.

  100. That is a RIOT!!!!

    DId you hear how hesitant the audience laughter was in the beginning? It was clear they didn’t like the topic butl Stewart was so blatantly, bitingly funny they couldn’t help themselves.

    His synonyms for prostitution were hysterical!
    genital contractor, used vagina salesman, toll booth operator.


  101. Soros won’t take this lying down. I’m sure obama has run to him crying and biting his nails over this. He needs his daddy to fix this asap.

    Obama Overload? President to Do ‘Full Ginsburg’ Sunday: Obama’s Multiple TV Appearances Have Some Saying He Risks Overexposure

    Sept. 16, 2009

    Fans of President Barack Obama are in for a treat this weekend. The president is going on a massive publicity blitz as he steps up his push for health care overhaul.

    Obama will be interviewed Sunday on five shows — ABC News’ “This Week With George Stephanopoulos,” CNN’s “State of the Nation”, CBS’s “Face the Nation”, NBC’s “Meet the Press” and Univision’s “Al Punto with Jorge Ramos” — in what is called a “full Ginsburg.”

    In modern media lore, the first time someone pulled the five-show feat was 11 years ago, in 1998, when Monica Lewinsky’s attorney, William Ginsburg, made the rounds to defend his client. Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., did a full Ginsburg in 2007 after launching her presidential bid.

    For both Ginsburg and Clinton, Fox News Sunday made the cut, and Univision didn’t. Such is not the case for Obama: Democrats say the Fox News Sunday audience is largely entrenched in their opposition to the president, and beyond persuasion, and thus submitting to an interview might not be the best use of Obama’s time.

    Polls indicate that Americans say the more they hear about the president’s proposed overhaul, the less they like it. An ABC News/Washington Poll last week showed 54 percent of Americans feel that way. White House officials say that’s because Americans are hearing false attacks on Obama’s plan, not reality — hence the PR blitz.

    Critics snipe that the president risks overexposure. In addition to this weekend’s shows, he granted interviews last week to ABC News’ “Good Morning America” and this week to CBS’s “60 Minutes,” CNBC and Bloomberg News.

    Republican strategist Kevin Madden says it’s too much. “I think the worry is it’s gone beyond overexposure and now we have what I would call the ‘Obama omnipresence.’ You almost can’t escape this president,” Madden said on ABC News’ “Top Line.” “It goes beyond just cable news and it goes into whether or not you’re flipping on ESPN and you’re seeing him talk about basketball or you turn on the Lifetime channel and you hear what Michelle Obama is wearing this week. And I think that begins to wear on a lot of people.”

    President Obama’s Publicity Campaign

    The president’s pitch goes well beyond news shows. He is also omnipresent on magazine racks and, next week, he will take his message to late night with an appearance on the “Late Show with David Letterman” — the first appearance since he was elected president. And that’s not Obama’s only comedy show appearance. He is even showing up in promotions for the new George Lopez comedy show on TBS.

    Madden says the barrage of TV appearances may have the opposite effect of what he’s trying to achieve. “The president keeps — he tries to hit reset with a big speech or an appearance on, you know, a major media outlet and that becomes one of these things where it starts to dilute the message,” Madden said. “And the message is that he just keeps carrying another message and that begins to hurt him, in my book.”

    But there are others who believe the president could step it up even more to avail himself of the opportunity to get his message across to the American people.
