Soros' Open Society Foundation Closes Operations In Hungary Under Pressure From Orban

After closing its Budapest office last month, Open Society, the purportedly philanthropic organization created to push a liberal, globalist political agenda espoused by billionaire investor George Soros, said Tuesday that it has officially pulled out of Hungary after accusing Prime Minister Viktor Orban of "repressing civil society," according to the WSJ.

"Faced with an increasingly repressive political and legal environment in Hungary, the Open Society Foundations are moving their Budapest-based international operations and staff to the German capital, Berlin," the group confirmed on Tuesday.

Patrick Gaspard, the president of the Open Society Foundations, lashed out at Hungary's government, accusing it of "denigrating and misrepresenting our work," while repressing civil society "for the sake of political gain."

Soros attributed his decision to leave Hungary, the country where he was born, to the ruling Fidesz party's push to pass a bill known as the "Stop Soros" plan. The bill would place new restrictions on non-governmental organizations found to be meddling in the country's political affairs. The billionaire investor has criticized the law as anti-Semitic.

Open Society previously said it will move its Hungary operations to Berlin.

Should the bill become law, it would require all NGOs which "support illegal immigration" to be register with the government, while any NGO that receives funding from abroad would need to pay a 25% tax. It would also force foreign citizens and Hungarian nationals who support illegal immigration to be subject to a restraining order which would require them to stay away from the country's border. "If Soros is found to have engaged in such activity, meaning he organizes illegal immigration, then the rules will apply to him," government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs said in February.

When OS first announced their withdrawal from Budapest last month, Prime Minister Orban responded with derision: "You might understand if I don’t cry my eyes out."

Orban has repeatedly criticized Open Society for pushing a pro-immigrant agenda that he believes is harmful to the country. Following Orban's landslide victory in elections earlier this year, Orban proclaimed that Soros wouldn't stop supporting opposition lawmakers until Fidesz had been defeated.

"I know they won’t accept the result of the election, they will organize all sorts of things, they have unlimited financial resources."

Hungary has been stepping up pressures on NGOs - not just Open Society, but also other organizations - since 2014, when a row with the Norwegian government led to Hungarian police raiding the offices of several aid groups, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Soros came to prominence and made his mark in the world in finance in the early 1990s when he broke the Bank of England by shorting the pound, leading to the collapse of the currency after the British government was forced to pull it from the Exchange Rate Mechanism.

Open Society was launched in 1979, with the first non-US-based office opening in Hungary in 1984. The group currently spends more than $940 million a year to support 26 regional and national offices. Late last year, Soros announced that he was dedicating the bulk of his eleven-figure fortune to Open Society.

It will be good when they close the casket on Darth Soros.

He is a private central banking cartel cat's paw. They can not be seen to be doing what he does but obviously he is operating for them.  Likewise John Kerry must be acting with full approval by the Deep State or he could not get away with acting as the dip-lomat in Iran long after leaving office. 

If a normal person like me did anything like these turds I would be living in fear of immediate arrest yet they appear to be very calm and are never arrested.

Don't count these chickens too fast. RT:

Central European University, a graduate school started by US billionaire George Soros, said on Tuesday it will stay in Hungary’s capital despite the decision by its founder’s foundation to leave. University rector Michael Ignatieff called on the government of Prime Minister Viktor Orban to formally recognize that the institution has complied with a set of new regulations and should be allowed to keep operating in Hungary,

ie HQ out, but lefttard protest troops stay.

And once again, everyone's most favorite Nazi skates and regroups to infect another society.

Orban needs to flush his entire staff of any and all Soros sympathizers or they will only serve as moles.

Then they will do as they have so effectively done here -- they will quietly harbor like insects, collecting information and passing it to the ruling parasites, and subverting the whole system.

$940MM budget per year for 26 offices gives roughly $36MM/Y/office. A typical employee costs about $30k per year. So either they have 1200 employees per office on average or they do engage in a lost of expensive activities...

On another note I keep on bumping into young "pollsters" in the railway stations across Europe polling about democracy and immigration and racism and free stuff and shit. Of course they recruit, and they profile young snowflakes because they can transform them into good brown shirts for Herr Soros. He's forming an army at ~$50/idiot/day (if he pays them of course, which doesn't happen all the time as evidenced by some recent events in America, don't forget he stole from fellow Jews during ww2...).

Together with corruption, this is where his budget go. Of course the books are closed despite the society which pretends to be open. 

If you really want to embarrass Soros, ask him to explain how and where does he spend his money. As a man of secrecy, he will moan and cry and lie and keep on forgetting or remembering wrong answers, so don't expect neither exact nor speedy answers.

Hungary did well with the tools it had.

My question is this : Why doesn't US do anything about him? There is enough proof for corruption, treason , Logan act , Rico act ,you name it.

The Donald's Treasury Department , run by Mnuchin ,is sanctioning everybody left and right , but it can not sanction Soros.

How about Sessions ? Is he still alive?

In order to kill a snake ,you have to cut off his head. if you don't do it ,it means only two things:

-you are too stupid to comprehend the snake is poisonous and will kill you sooner or later

-or the snake works for you

If I get rich Im donating to judicial watch to go after him, actually sooner.  Who else is doing anything besides them?  He is a Bolshevik.  He would nail our kids guts to trees and make them run like they did there.  This man is no joke why is nothing ever done?  Why is he so untouchable?  People better start giving a shit.

@Ms. No -- 

That is a very good question.

His Nazi past should be enough for all the Nazi hunters to go into wild hysterics and deport him back to Hungary, but they allow him to run free.

Why?

They go after a nobody camp guard who is living a quiet live after decades on end, yet this parasite walks around creating destruction everywhere.

Someone is protecting him, and there is far more money behind him than just his little fortune.

There is far more to Gyorgi Shwarz/George Soros that goes much, much deeper and wider than what we see.

Some Nazis are more equal than others.

Yep, people are missing something huge here.  Then a bunch of the bastards lived in peace in South America without the CIA listing one finger to do anything about it, except maybe to protect them. 

Then a bunch that were left out of Nuremberg were imported into NASA and who knows what intelligence agencies.  The Bush family made a fortune off the nazis, then bush 2 led the CIA during the great Globalist Zionist takeover.  All coincidence I'm sure.  People want to see things in black and white, and believe in the greatness of Hitler.  This has always played right into their hands.  

The end result of Hitler was the German people destroyed never to return (not looking good now either) if people go that way again they should expect the same result.

The Ignatieffs and Ignatievs are the epitome of rabid Alinsky disciples, anarchists, radical as Islamic terrists, who, in more objective times, would by now be dead, and their heads on pikes as a stark warning to all who insist on one World, one ruler, one global governor:  Themselves.

These Ignatievs (effs) are a revolutionary cabal, a conspiracy of some Jews attempting to pay back the descendants of Holocaust perps, and when you meet or see one, you need to render them extinct. Stomp on them like you would a sleeping Coral snake.

Goebbles was observing - not advising.

The NatSocs' writings about The Big Lie and Blame Others For Your Own Sins were descriptions of what they saw the Marxists doing in Germany, and in fact, all throughout Europe, at that time.

The NatSocs, however, failed to eradicate Marxism, because it is a creation of and backstopped by the Globalist Money Power. In their vain effort to do so, they fell victim to the old principle of "We tend to become like the worst in those we oppose."

Even so, the stories we are all told about their actions, when examined critically, do not conform to the laws of physics.

That interview with him hugely displays his psychopathy and the truth.  What was he doing confiscating Germans wealth, including other Jews?  He sure as he'll wasn't in hiding.  They funded both, it was them.  Now he is doing the exact same shit.  This is not a coincidemce.

he'll be breathing for another 50 years. Only poor people and the middle classes have a lifespan limit of 80. The George Soros's of the world have the best medical treatments, blood transfusions from young people with growth hormone, etc  - they live a lot longer. Look at Rupert Murdoch, still hands on boss of News Ltd age 90+.
