Fresh off a series of losing California DA races that "ran into a brick wall," Hungarian-born billionaire George Soros sat down for an interview with the Washington Post to discuss his view on the future and the current state of the world. And during the interview, he delivered the following assessment: "Everything that can go wrong has gone wrong."
Soros appears to be building on his previously presented view that Trump is adding to Europe's existential crisis:
“The EU is in an existential crisis. Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong,” he said.
To escape the crisis, “it needs to reinvent itself.”
"The United States, for its part, has exacerbated the EU’s problems. By unilaterally withdrawing from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, President Donald Trump has effectively destroyed the transatlantic alliance. This has put additional pressure on an already beleaguered Europe. It is no longer a figure of speech to say that Europe is in existential danger; it is the harsh reality."
He's now arguing that President Donald Trump is "the ultimate narcissist" who would be "willing to destroy the world" to preserve his own narcissism.
Soros said he would support impeachment proceedings against Trump if Democrats win in a landslide in November, as long as their is some Republican support.
Soros, who has championed liberal causes like the European Union, has seen the world turn against his center-left ideology and embrace a more populist, nationalist strain of politics that has seen his foundations booted out of Russia and his home country of Hungary. Unfortunately, his recent failures - and even the stigma that's attached to candidates who take his money - have only convinced him to redouble his efforts, instead of embracing an early retirement.
"The bigger the danger, the bigger the threat, the more I feel engaged to confront it," Soros said Thursday.
"So in that sense, yes, I redouble my efforts."
After spending "months" studying what went wrong in the 2016 election, Soros told WaPo that he had concluded that while Clinton would have made a "very good president," she was not a good campaigner and "was too much like a schoolmarm," Soros said.
"Talking down to people . . . instead of listening to them." Soros-linked organizations gave Clinton some $15 million.
Soros also said he learned another lesson in 2016: The ease with which people's opinions can be manipulated. "It's so much easier to destroy trust than build it up."
While Soros wouldn't say which 2020 contender he's supporting, he did single out one potential 2020 contender whom he hopes doesn't get it - New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. Soros blames her for forcing the resignation of Minnesota Sen. Al Franken - "whom I admire" - over images that surfaced showing Franken groping the breasts of a sleeping female journalist.
As WaPo reminds us, Soros gave money to Republicans in the 1980s and 1990s who opposed Communist dictators that Soros also opposed. But he turned against the Republican party in 2003 after the invasion of Iraq. Since then, he has become one of the Democratic Party's most reliable and generous donors.
As we previously argued, the Deep State appears to be focused still on playing "The Delegitimization Card" (as opposed to "The Herbert Hoover Card" or "The John F. Kennedy Card") for now and as ever Soros is the ring-leader.
There’s a joke that goes something like this…
Question: Why can there be no “color revolution” in the US?
Answer: Because there are no US embassies in the US.
To get the joke you have to understand the role the US played—through CIA officers based out of US embassies - in orchestrating various color-coded revolutions, really coups d’état, over the past 17 years:
The Bulldozer Revolution in Serbia (2000)
The Rose Revolution in Georgia (2003)
The Orange and Euromaidan Revolutions in Ukraine (2004 and 2014)
The Tulip Revolution in Kyrgyzstan (2005)
The Cedar Revolution in Lebanon (2005)
The Jeans Revolution in Belarus (2006)
The Saffron Revolution in Myanmar (2007)
The Green Revolution in Iran (2009)… though that one didn't work.
The Grape Revolution in Moldova (2009)
The Colorful Revolution in Macedonia (2016)
All of these AstroTurf revolutions have one thing in common. In each case, George Soros’ NGOs helped delegitimize the targeted government.
Of course, there were valid grievances against these governments. But the US Deep State manipulated these situations to advance its geopolitical agenda.
Here’s how it worked: Soros’ NGOs would help fund and organize “professional protestors.” Then they’d use color-specific branding to help rally others to their cause.
Soros has turned colored revolutions into a science. The pattern is predictable.
Now it’s playing out in the US.
It smells to me like the CIA and George Soros’ NGOs are trying to start a “color revolution” in the US, just like they’ve done in numerous foreign countries.

And today's WaPo interview is merely building on that effort...
