Nigel Farage Calls On EU To Investigate George Soros

The anti-Russia hysteria that has raged in the US for just over a year now appeared poised to spread to the UK last week after British media learned that three past or present Foreign Office ministers - including Boris Johnson - had been targeted by FBI agents in their investigations into George Papadopoulos and Carter Page. The reports aroused suspicions that the ‘Leave’ campaign may have taken money indirectly from the Russian government. Of course, the idea that Russian efforts - part of a three-dimensional Russian plot to diminish the UK’s international influence - managed to sway the vote in favor of Brexit is just as ludicrous as the notion that $100,000 in Facebook promoted posts managed to throw the election to Trump.

And as if to underscore this point, Nigel Farage delivered a speech at the European Parliament - where he represents South East England - pointing out that George Soros’ Open Society Foundation has far more influence on elections across the Europe and the US. And if investigators are looking for evidence of foreign influence, they should start there. After all, George Soros recently signed over most of his assets - some $18 billion worth - to his OSF, which oversees a network of dozens of organizations across Europe.



And what is this money used for? Soros’ nonprofits have one mission: To promote a globalist agenda of open borders, free trade and liberal democratic values.

Speaking to the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Tuesday, Farage told fellow MEPs he believes that when it comes to international collusion, “we are looking in the wrong place.” He says Soros’ influence in Brussels is “truly extraordinary,”adding: “I fear we could be looking at the biggest level of international, political collusion in history," according to Russia Today.

Farage, the leader of the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy group in the European Parliament, believes Soros has spent billions in the EU to undermine the nation state. “When we are talking about offshore money, when we are talking about political subversion, when we are talking about collusion, I wonder if we are looking in the wrong place.

“And I say that because George Soros recently gave Open Society, which of course campaigns for freedom of movement of people and supranational structures like the European Union, $18 billion. And his influence here and in Brussels is truly extraordinary."

Open Society says it held 42 meetings in 2016 with the European Commission, and has published lists of reliable “friends” in the European Parliament. Farage pointed out that there are 226 names on the list, he says. He told those MEPs he would be writing to them to establish whether they had accepted money or help from Soros.

“If we’re going to have a debate, and talk about full, political and financial transparency, well let’s do it.  So I shall be writing today to all 226 of you, asking some pretty fair questions: Have you ever received funds directly or indirectly from Open Society? How many of their events have you attended? Could you please give us a list of all the representatives including George Soros?”

Last week, the electoral commission opened an investigation into whether the Leave campaign took offshore money, Farage pointed out. However, in a twist that’s sure to arouse suspicion, the investigation was opened following a request in the House of Commons from a Ben Bradshaw, an affiliate of Open Society.

Finally, since authorities seem intent on investigating any Russian influence in the vote to leave the European Union, Farage demanded that the European Parliament set up a special committee to look into the issue. “I say this at a time when the use of money and the implications it may have had on the Brexit result or the Trump election has reached virtual hysteria."

Now that he has mostly retired from investing, Soros spends his days feuding with the leaders of mid-sized Eastern European states like Hungary, where he and President Viktor Orban are engaged in a PR battle over the future of a country that Orban has led further and further to the right as a surge of migrants have poured over the European border from Africa and the Middle East.

  Not sure how anybody would want to investigate Soros…… It’s not like he is a former NAZI facilitator or  anything

Farage, as usual, is  the voice of sanity and common sense.Soros has the wealth and the network to enable him to meddle and meddle he does.   Soros also has the wealth to enable him to buy just about every politician in the world, and he has.   He has certainly bought a great many in the US and in Europe and the UK.Soros is psychotic and he should be sectioned before he entirely destroys Western Civilization.   The fact that he is still free demonstrates the cupidity and corruption of our entire political class.

No.... why would you assume insanity?Markets are networks, and markets create Pareto distributions  in wealth for middle men... The hub of the network...So if you're a middle man like a financier then you want a smaller number of bigger markets. You go from being the 1% to the 0.1% to the "open society" ... one big market... is just self interest for Soros and his ilk.What is particularly amusing about Soros though is that he has managed to completely co-opt the entire left into fighting for increased inequality.

"co-opt the entire left"They will be so pissed in the end ... it is not like he is enabling them to have the same as him is it?If anything I see the left becoming "rabid bolsheveiks" if they ever realise they have been duped and the current level of destruction shows it rapidly rising so just wait until the economy takes the next leg down and they get even less.

”The entire left”. I disagree. For three central reasons: 1.       Soros is not alone in his endeavor to “destroy the left by usurpation”. In US the left-wing was destroyed from public discourse decades ago. Today US only has right-wing – the part mouthing social liberal values (the “Democrats”) and the part mouthing conservative values (the “Republicans”). Both parts are servants of the capitalist oligarchy/the ownership class. The corporate/private control of all relevant medias have ensured that no-one gets confronted with real left-wing arguments but only the caricature allowed by the ownership class. The “divide and conquer”-strategy is especially effective when “there is no alternative” (TINA) to capitalism – then there’s only irrelevant topics like “race/gender/sexual orientation/religion/etc.” to disagree on (and not class interests). 2.       Soros is not controlling any real left-wing movements or groups – he has supported and created caricatures (like BLM and Open Society) but none that articulate any real left-wing arguments. The most corporate controlled areas of the world (especially USA) are also the places where absolutely minorities can define any left-wing ideology (apart from the version force-fed to them by corporate propaganda: “Cultural Marxism”, “Progressivism”, “Statism” etc.). 3.       The left-wing is alive and well – just not reported. Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram are now openly using censorship to make sure no-one gets any real left-wing arguments – the best example is how The World Socialist Web Site has been targeted by Google’s new “evaluation methods.” While in April 2017, 400.000+ who visited the WSWS originated from Google searches, the figure dropped to an estimated 120,000 in the month following their new “evaluation methods” (fight against “fake news”. The MSM is obviously right-wing – privately owned by the same people who owns everything else/the capitalists. You have to actively seek real left-wing sites, peoples and ideas – they will not be given to you by your masters. Soros is contributing to a general effort by the corporate masters to ensure no-one is able to formulate, envision and/or participate in efforts to achieve alternatives to financial capitalism (=the private ownership of everything by a tiny minority). That effort is centralized on make sure no-one understands or support real left-wing ideologies.

I think not. But I don’t know – depends on your definition of “commie”? I suspect your definition is a chain of empty corporate created slogans (proving my point in the above comment), misnomers and half-truths, but surprise me with an elaborate, clear and impartial definition. PS. The “FOAD”-part is something you have to deal with – cognitive dissonance and the anger it creates should be used as a clear sign to reevaluate ones world view.

This brave fellow is a great voice of freedom in Europe and he might get the ball rolling on this particular ratbastard.  They should start by seizing the $18 billion.

Bravo Nigel!

It is, however, hardly likely that the EU "Upper Crust" - which has, for "services rendered", been liberally "buttered" by Soros over the years - is now suddenly going to "see the light, go cold-turkey", stop their betrayal and put a stop to Soros' mass 3rd World Invasion of Europe - let alone "investigate" their Uber Sugar Daddy! - especially now that there's another 18Billion Soros-Shekels dangling in front of their fat, porcine, Merkel'ised mugs... Oink! Oink!

Soros represents a kind of international Adolf Hitler/NAZI Party organization, and just as dangerous. Or, you might just as easily substitute Bolshevism for NAZI.It's all towards a Totalitarian Global Government.Also, it's pretty well established from what I have read that he, a Jew, assisted the NAZIs in WW2 in betraying other Jews.Israelis went to great lengths to capture Adolf Eichman. Why have they not gone after Soros?

Ecce Homo with sterling gonads who uses his rapier tongue to deflate Soros toadies -- would that Nigel Farage could be cloned a million fold and half sent to the USA to help Trump throw depth charges into the Swamp.

Farage is viewed as a joke in the UK and Ireland, "way out there".  I tried to have conversations with a couple of people but ideological differences erupted within 30 seconds ( no elites, no financial manipulation, Farage is  nutjob etc).Reading Zerohedge has given me the impression that people actually have an idea of whats going on, but the actual conversations indicates that the mind control is still very strong.Strangely, because Americans are the most badly bastardizied they are waking up the quickest.

Love and hate sides of the same coin.Truth and lie likewise.When it switches, it is unstoppable.Farrage may seem like a nutcase to some in the UK - but today's nutcase will be their tommorow hero.AND if people haven't noticed the pendulm has been swining away from the left.Sorros better 'pray' there is no Hell - else he is going to have one terrifying eternity of screaming in agony.

Its funny how the mainstream media tries to always show Nigel as a nutcase.Everytime they try, he gets more attention and more people to listen to him.

 The Crazy EU:-MEPs and legal experts have claimed the veto over the territory’s future after Brexit would give Spain special status among EU nation, when they should be on an equal level.The EU’s Brexit negotiating guidelines stated that the Brexit deal will not apply to Gibraltar without an “agreement between the kingdom of Spain and the UK”.Experts have told the Telegraph that the veto could be illegal under EU law.Spain's Gibraltar claim has NO legitimacy and YES would be illegal.They've effectively signed the territory away 3x times!Gibraltar – Spanish Myths and Agreements (single page):
