WHO IS GEORGE SOROS?
Only the statesman, not the politician, will recognize and react to the acts of war this man and all the tentacles he possesses and uses like agents of war against America would stand up and have this man arrested, his assets confiscated and his subversive organization similarly shutdown To date, no statesmen are currently in office in the U.S. Congress, had there been, Obama would have already suffered the same fate. - W.E.
His hedge fund, Quantum Funds, is based off-shore, making the sources of his funds practically impossible to determine.
- Headed the National Security Program of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW).
- Research analyst and consultant to the House Committee on Un-American Activities; subsequently director of research and then its staff director.
- Executive secretary for the Subversive Activities Control Board (SACB).
- Vice-chairman of the Security and Intelligence Foundation from 1987-90.
- Senior fellow at the Center for Intelligence Studies in Arlington, Virginia.
For some 25 years, as an employee of the Department of Defense and the National Security Council as well as in various private sector posts, he has violated security regulations and/or consistently attacked and strongly opposed generally accepted security practices, in addition to demonstrating extremely poor judgment about what constitutes sensitive security information.
Another reason for rejecting Halperin’s nomination is that he has revealed a sick, unhealthy animus and hostility toward the U.S. Intelligence Community and the individual agencies composing it, despite their vital relationship to the security of the Nation.
Communist party affiliation is hardly evidence that someone is a subversive foreign agent. Many members of the Communist party are and were patriotic citizens.
Unbeknown to Jack or Morris, Levison in the I950s met King and subsequently attached himself to the young civil rights leader as a personal confidant and advisor. At the behest of Levison, King later employed Jack O’Dell in the Southern Christian Leadership Council. Morris identified Jack O’Dell as Hunter Pitts O’Dell, a secret member of the party’s governing body, the National Committee. In November I959 Jackson revealed to Jack that O’Dell was working full time for King and that Levison worked closely with O’Dell.
On May 6, 1960, Jack reported: ‘Hunter Pitts [Jack] O’Dell is working full time in connection with the King mass meeting to be held in Harlem on May I7, I960. Working closely with O’Dell are Stanley and Roy Levison [Bennett]. The CP considers [the] King meeting of the most importance and feels that it is definitely to the Party’s advantage to assign outstanding Party members to work with the [Martin] Luther King group. CP policy at the moment is to concentrate upon Martin Luther King.’
Truth can be very uncomfortable but worse than truth are those who try and evade the truth for long periods of times to achieve their ends. For example I praise John Paulson but his genius was to expose the 20 years of absurd subsidization of the housing market (Fannie/ Freddie, mortgage interest deductions, deductibility of property tax on income taxes that only benefits the poor, a local government industrial complex that encourages residential development and ever rising prices and a mortgage delivery system that was corrupt). There was no incentive for anyone to point these issues out because frankly everyone was in on it. The media too loved this as real estate brokers fueled ad pages as did mortgage brokers. Ending this charade was painful but didn’t it make sense for a country to allocate such an absurd amount of resources to an asset that really serves no value at all. Wouldn’t those resources be better diverted to healthcare, education, infrastructure rather than bigger and bigger houses? I lived in China and they tax the hell out of property and divert the money to infrastructure which makes all their people more productive. Yes they have some absurd problems too, but wasn’t the bubble in housing an extreme that needed to end? The fact that Paulson benefited from the issue in many ways is beside the point. Incentives in any ecosystem matter probably more than anything and whether you don’t like that he was rewarded for being a part of the end of this ridiculous real estate complex that’s simply part of being a species that requires incentives to find the right path.
The only financial reform needed today is to regulate and monitor the hedge funds and the hedge fund short sellers, some of them which are registered off-shore to avoid scrutiny. These global operators, with investors who remain mostly anonymous, must be compelled to register with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), publicly disclose their positions in the markets, and maintain accounting and trading records for a period of 10 years so their activities can be monitored and scrutinized. Just like mutual funds, they must be prohibited from engaging in day trading activities.
Many people do not realize that the hedge funds are responsible for 75-90 percent of all trading activities on Wall Street. They are responsible for the extreme market volatility. They are responsible for everything that is bad on Wall Street.
- Reinstate the uptick rule.
- Remove mark-to-market accounting and replace it with historic cost accounting.
- Dismantle and discontinue trading on all the short Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), also called leveraged inverse ETFs.
- Reinstate the circuit breakers and the trading curb to kick in whenever the Dow Jones drops 150 points.

I knew I could do many things that mattered to me through a foundation with such large resources. What I did not realize was that George Soros was in the process of becoming, as he has been described, the only private citizen in the United States – or, perhaps the world – with his own foreign policy and the capacity to implement it. He is unique in possessing the resources, the institutional mechanisms, the status, and the will to promote his policy on a global scale. 20
Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply, himself or his agent, to any foreign government or the agents thereof for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.
The Logan Act was intended to prohibit United States citizens without authority from interfering in relations between the United States and foreign governments. There appear to have been no prosecutions under the Act in its more than 200 year history. However, there have been a number of judicial references to the Act, and it is not uncommon for it to be used as a point of challenge concerning dealings with foreign officials. Although attempts have been made to repeal the Act, it remains law and at least a potential sanction to be used against anyone who without authority interferes in the foreign relations of the United States.21
Soros’ foreign policy is different. He pursues his own vision, undisturbed by his effect on other nations or the interests of his own. It is hard for foreign governments to hold him accountable and his goals and methods are usually kept secret. While the risks of Soros’ foreign policy to the U.S. are clear, they are clearly ignored by Washington policy makers and the White House press corps. Why? 22
Soros is hated because many Eastern Europeans and Central Asians believe that he is using his money to subvert their political systems. Rightly or wrongly, this view tends to promote anti-Americanism. And it gives dictators a talking point to use against American diplomats.
His 2004 book, The Bubble of American Supremacy, was subtitled, “The Costs of Bush’s War in Iraq.” He wasn’t concerned about the costs associated with the illegal intervention in Kosovo. And he doesn’t object to forcing U.S. taxpayers to spend more on the U.N.
- Finding “new ways to encourage cooperation” with the Castro dictatorship.
- “Reining in the CIA.”
- “Ending the war in Afghanistan,” and
- “Building public support for peace.”
His Americanism, like his Judaism, is not something that Soros openly embraces.
Treason is a serious crime, and the Constitution defines the requirements for convicting someone of treason. Treason is waging a violent war against the United States in cooperation with a foreign country or any organized group. It includes assisting or aiding any foreign country or organization in taking over or destroying this country including abolishing the Constitution. Treason also consists of attempting by overt acts to overthrow the US government or of betraying our government into the hands of a foreign power. If you are caught and convicted of treason, you can pretty much count on losing your US citizenship as well as serving lots of jail time.27
