Soros Floods Democrats With Millions, Warns Trump Of "Consequences"

Tyler Durden's picture

Following MoveOn.org's "success" last Friday, George Soros is back on the lips of an increasing number of Americans as Bloomberg reports, the liberal billionaire, whose effort to unseat President George W. Bush in 2004 shattered political spending records, is returning to big-ticket activism after an 11-year hiatus. Soros has spent or committed more than $13 million to support Hillary Clinton and other Democrats this election cycle and has warned Donald Trump (and Ted Cruz) of "consequences" for their words and actions. Welcome to the Oligarchy.

Having already already donated  more than his total disclosed spending in the last two presidential elections combined, Bloomberg reports,

Soros has expressed alarm over the past few months at the candidacies of Republicans Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. In a statement last week about a new group he's funding to increase voting by Latinos and immigrants in the election, he again mentioned the two candidates by name.

 

"The intense anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim rhetoric that has been fueled by the Republican primary is deeply offensive," Soros said in the statement. "There should be consequences for the outrageous statements and proposals that we've regularly heard from candidates Trump and Cruz."

 

Michael Vachon, a spokesman and political adviser to Soros, said there was no single cause for the increase in spending. "His support of Clinton is one reason. The tone of the other candidates is the other," Vachon said. The Clinton, Cruz and Trump campaigns, which face crucial primary contests in Ohio and Florida today, didn't respond to requests for comment.

Soros's importance to Clinton goes beyond the checks he writes, since other major Democratic donors sometimes follow his lead.

At the same time, it's likely that in a general election, Trump would pillory Clinton for her reliance on Soros and other wealthy hedge-fund managers. The billionaire real-estate developer has spent months portraying his Republican rivals as the tools of their donors.

Soros's personal fortune stands at about $24 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

Soros spent an unprecedented $27 million trying to defeat Bush's re-election in 2004, much of it through independent groups known as 527s that could accept donations of unlimited size. While the groups Soros funded knocked on doors and tried to boost voter turnout, a conservative 527 group aired a powerful series of ads questioning Democrat John Kerry's war record, helping Bush win a second term. "They were in-your-face distortions of the truth," a frustrated Soros told the New York Times Magazine in 2006. "People don't care about the truth."

 

Soros signed on as an early backer of Obama during the 2008 campaign, but spent only about $5 million on political causes that cycle, according to a tally by Bloomberg that doesn't include undisclosed donations to political nonprofits. He spent even less in 2012, even though the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling prompted a flood of new seven-figure contributions that year.

A few months later, Soros told a Clinton confidant that he wished he hadn't backed Obama in the primary four years earlier.

"He said he's been impressed that he can always call/meet with you on an issue of policy and he hasn't met with the president ever," Neera Tanden said in a 2012 e-mail to Clinton, who was then serving as Obama's Secretary of State. "He regretted his decision in the primary -- he likes to admit mistakes when he makes them and that was one of them."

The e-mail was one of thousands of Clinton's messages that the State Department later made public, several of which show what a warm reception Soros got from her office.

At Davos in January, Soros remarked that Trump and Cruz are engaging in "fear mongering." But he predicted that neither of them would prevail in the November election. "Here I have to confess to a little bit of bias, so take that into account," he told Bloomberg Television. "I think it's going to lead to a landslide for Hillary Clinton."

Can The GOP stop Soros? "Trump and Cruz doing the work of ISIS"

Apologies for tossing an OT in-between Presidential Candidates  ;-)

I’ve been experimenting with different Tinfoil (TF) headgear.

I’ve tried TF-boiler hats, TF-cowboy hats, TF-turbans, and even a TF-yarmulke.

I even tried an Indian tinfoil dot on my forehead, but… I’ve discovered that Tinfoil Babushkas work waaay better than anything else!

Now I wanna try a Tinfoil Burqa. Does anybody have one for sale?  ;-)

What do you think, Soros:  will there someday be consequences to your words and actions? 

Or as a sanctioned, international and domestic terrorist will you be immune forever?

Seriously, how many people did Soros just convert to Trump voters?  Keep talkin'.

How about we hit Soros with the largest class action, ever? He's deliberately attempting to sabotage the free speech of millions of Americans, and admitting to as much in the press.

That special place in hell is looking to be getting pretty crowded and after Soros gets there, it will be even worse.

There was an excellent interview with a Trump spokeperson today her name is Katrina Pierson and she not only answered the bashing journalists questions but threw them back politely but clearly. One answer was great when she idenitfied many of the violent protesters as paid for by MoveOn.org.

Yeah, Soros'll be there in hell with all those (ugly) broads who DON'T vote for Hillary like Madeline Albright said.  Ya gotta be a good little Dem, girls, and vote for yo Mama Hillary.

Yeah, well you can see who Clinton was communicating with on those once secret emails, and now doesn't want the sordid details to come out in a Court.

How many converted to trump voters?

Probably a decent amount. It's funny, getting the backing of people like soros (and adelson for the GOP) used to mean you could expect a substantial boost in support from all the ad space that money can buy, plus the attack ads it's sure to run, especially with superPACs. But I think that's flipped on its head now. Trump making a quick one liner on television and a few (free) tweets about how she is taking money from shadowy billionaires will hurt her campaign far more than his money will help her.

Qui bono?

Hmmm. Two sides. Same coin?

Well, Adelson never informed on people to the Nazis.

So there is that ;-)

There is something about this Soros vs. Bush story that has always bothered me.  It doesn't make sense.  They are all globalist and the Yale/Bonesman/CFR Bushs have accomplished many things to further that agenda.  There is no way that Soros had a problem with Iraq and Afghanistan or pretty much anything else that Bush did.  Money falls off of trees for these people and so no amount of millions spent by Soros really proves that he was an enemy of the Bushs.  They can print money to play red/blue team games if they want, something isn't right about this.  It's a meme of sorts.  The MSM pushed it.

all of them have huge, outsized egos. they might have treaded on each other's; one never knows; most of them hold grudges for very childish reasons.

He is all you say but he is right on this, but it doesn't matter.

Whether it is Hillary or Trump, a Democrat will rule over us for the 4 to eight years again and America is finished.

If someone took him on with terminal consequences that had legal implications, I'd contribute to the legal fund.

He and Kissinger will sail off into the sunset on the Nazi Coed Booze Cruise. Sadly, for them, they will be refused entry to any civilized port.

Don't straddle the fence, Sal - take a stand.  Tell us how you really feel.  Got an opinion on this dude?  Don't hold back. No more beaqting around the bush or hemming and hawing - clue us in.

Also, why doesn't George have a shadow?

I'm afraid George won't be going to the light.  There is a different place in store for that SOB.

Jewish Thinking About Syrian Refugees — Again

Beginning in the late nineteenth century, anti-restrictionist arguments developed by Jews were typically couched in terms of universalist humanitarian ideals; as part of this universalizing effort, gentiles from old-line Protestant families were recruited to act as window dressing for their efforts, and Jewish groups such as the American Jewish Committee funded pro-immigration groups composed of non-Jews (Neuringer 1971, 92). (see Culture of Critique, Ch. 7, p. 261).

And they turned America on its head so we have this:

Black students advocate white genocide at Harvard
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RC-Cqkq6zWc
This debate about whether white people should be exterminated was held at Harvard University.The pro-genocide team, Damiyr Davis and Miguel Felician, is from the University of West Georgia.

The topic of the debate was supposed to be renewable energy — not race. The black debaters simply *chose* to bring up their opponents’ race and demand that whites kill themselves. The black debaters expressly stated that these were their *sincere beliefs*, not just an argument to win a debate.

Black students at every major university in the country, including Harvard, Yale, and Johns Hopkins, have joined the “Black Liberation Collective” which endorses the murder of whites in a manifesto called “On Violence.” http://www.blackliberationcollective

Amazingly, the University of West Georgia brags about these two anti-white debaters on its website. The duo’s passionate advocacy of white extermination has made them No. 2 in the country! http://www.westga.edu/ucmassets/news/

Also please do not forget to mention Soros backing elements of the corrupt coup of Kiev and its nazi extremist. Soros has also been funding, backing Bellingcat in the MH17 investigation, with the sole purpose of installing anti-Russian propaganda via MSM through fabricated 'evidence' implementing both DPR/LPR and Russia with the downing of the aircraft, when clearly they are not involved.

He even 'made' Elliot Higgins (as in Italian Mafia slang) into his circle of oligarchs and warmongers, such as becoming a 'Senior Fellow' on the Atlantic Council - http://www.atlanticcouncil.org/about/experts/list/eliot-higgins

"F" is not the letter that comes to mind. Maybe verbs that start with a D, G, H, K, M or S come to mind.
