His flagship, Quantum Fund, is based on very short-term speculation. It does not invest in companies, social good, innovation, or environmentalism over the long run. Instead, Soros makes massive, highly-leveraged spot bets on the direction of the financial and capital markets.
Remembered as the man who “broke the Bank of England” in a short on the British pound in 1992, and later as a prime mover behind the Asian financial crisis and collapse of Thailand’s currency (baht) in 1997, governments live in fear of the Hungarian-born, nefarious legend, who repeatedly has caused market chaos to reap huge benefits—for himself.
Isn’t it odd that such a manipulative, selfish, market-driven dark trader would be so socialist and globalist in orientation?
Over the decades, Soros has poured his riches into a wide assortment of left-wing causes and organizations, most notably centered around his Open Society Foundation, which is anything but what it sounds.
Here are a handful of his biggest beneficiaries, all of them on the far Left. He is also a huge benefactor to Democrats, having given more than $9 million to Hillary Clinton and her super PACs in the last election round alone:
American Civil Liberties Union
Bill of Rights Defense Committee
Center for American Progress
Center for Community Change
Center for Economic and Policy Research
Color Of Change
Drum Major Institute
European Council on Foreign Relations
Free Exchange on Campus
Green for All
Human Rights Campaign
Independent Media Center
Independent Media Institute
Institute for New Economic Thinking
International Crisis Group
Media Matters for America
National Abortion Federation
National Organization for Women
National Public Radio
Natural Resources Defense Council
People Improving Communities Through Organizing
Psychologists for Social Responsibility
Tides Foundation and Tides Center
U.S. Public Interest Research Group
It is no wonder why Soros is often called “the Godfather of the Left.” He is their proverbial moneybag.
Soros is supposedly very pleased to have enemies.
In a recent interview, he related, “I’m very proud of the enemies I have . . . It’s a perfect way to tell a dictator or a would-be dictator if he identifies me as an enemy.”
Convenient logic for a real dictator and illiberal enemy of the people. Yet he counts Donald Trump as Public Enemy No. 1.
Backing a plan to stop Brexit in Great Britain and now on board with Elizabeth Warren in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, the financier even backs her wealth tax.
He has financed abortion on demand, legalization of drugs, and more recently, district attorney races in many American cities with unbelievably radical candidates.
But most of all he is 100 percent into ending Trump and seeing globalism enshrined worldwide.
