George Soros: "Having a Good Crisis"

Is there any way on God's green earth to deport George Soros? This London Daily Mail story ought to outrage you.

If only the rest of America knew how hard this radical leftist "financier" was working to rip the guts out of this country, and to destroy everything our Founders sacrificed so much to accomplish.

I've wondered for some time whether Soros and those of his ilk are truly so socialistic or just "talking their own book" for the purpose of profit. Of course, the damage is the same regardless, but excessive greed of "I got mine no matter what" is as damaging. Look at AIG and the writers of credit default swaps and mortgage brokers initiating mortgages such as the liar loans.

Just food for thought.

I suppose that's always possible. You'd think someone that grew up under communism and came to the West wouldn't want to go down that road. But hard leftists do all sorts of odd things. Some of them also operate under the idea, "the rules apply to you but not to us."

As an aside, I am trying to get Dr. Jamie Glazov's book, "United in Hate." It's about the mindset of the left. I saw it recently on WorldNetDaily and other sites, and looks like it could be very instructive.

It was rumored that Soros was heavily invested in Crude Oil futures during the $10/bbl-$147/bbl run, all the while periodically appearing in the media talking them higher. T. Boone Pickens as well, making statements like "we'll see $120 before we see $60." Did anybody really believe the "supply and demand" argument? Many bought it. But ultimately it was "talking their own book." Happens all the time. And what was the economic tipping point with gas prices? $4? So, run up fuel prices for one's own profit just to the point of severely wounding the economy, then invest in the many financial instruments that are bets against the market while it tumbles. Make money both ways. Blame China or the Middle Eastern or the Union wages? The media shills have made enemies of them all, so who cares. BTW, hedge funds don't have transparency reporting requirements that mutual funds and publicly traded entities do. Watch closely as every time the Senate Finance Committee mentions hedge funds regulation it gets squashed. Lot's going on unnoticed behind the scenes.

A bit more (not trying to commandere the meta here). Volatility. It's the lifeblood of a market trader. It's where he makes the most cash. Who better to align oneself with that the leftist who are always agitating something. Who better to prostitute than willing followers? Just add a little spark it the right spot and you have one whale of a fire.
Your point about Soros coming out from under communism. I'd say he's anti-communist. He's made billions in a capitalistic environment, doesn't answer nor is controlled by anyone or any government. In the, it's greed on steroids.
FWIW, I was a trader for quite a while, until convicted that I was as big a prostitute as them all. Unplugged from it, much to the astonishment of many. But I did explain how and why I was convicted.

Solameanie said...

Soros might say he's anti-communist. In that light, it's interesting that he's doing all he can (including funding the far-left with millions of dollars) to bring that philosophy of government here. Even if he's not full-tilt communist in the same vein as Lenin or Stalin, the basic economic principle is the same.

Solameanie said...

I should also point this out. Consider Leonid Brezhnev in the Soviet Union. Under the communist system, everyone was supposed to be equal. The communist leaders were typically more equal than others, as typified by Breshnev's luxurious suits, cars, French cufflinks and other gew gaws. It's easy to do with other people's money. But as Margaret Thatcher said, sooner or later socialists run out of other people's money.

Ron said...

I'm not trying to be argumentative, just attempting to have you view through a different lense. That's all I'm asking. Greed in lieu of the political. $100 million in seed money to reap billions on profit. Not a bad return on investment. Look at what the article reports he made just last year. He's not as interested in political power as he is in Money power, not interested in running out of other people's money, but interested in pocketing it. Don't look at what he's saying, look at what he's doing for himself. And I'm not indicating that he's not a scoundrel. Just out for numero uno, and willing to prey on whomever to get it.

Gotta go. Due back at the rescue mission.

Solameanie said...

I don't think you're being argumentative at all. And I don't really disagree with you. Many people often scratch their heads at why liberals and hard leftists can do things that appear to be at cross purposes. I am sure he's out to make all the dough he can, even while helping to enslave the rest of the great unwashed.

He could also be what the Marxists called a "fellow traveler" or "unwitting dupe." People like that are enamored of the leftist ideal, and help it along only to be the first ones shot when the hardcore take over.

All of this is just speculation on my part. If I had one real main concern, it's the fact that Soros is an enemy of Christianity.

The left has always been elitist, when they're in charge, the rules really don't apply to them!
