George Soros
Is A Very
Strange Man

George Soros is the founder and chief-financier of, the Political Action Commitee started to remove George Bush from office. Thus far, he has been unsuccessful in his primary goal, but the money behind has been succeeded in undermining America and adding to the chaos and anger in our national political debate.

But, who is George Soros? Check out this article from Accuracy in Media (thanks to R. Davis to the link):

Speaking at a Washington symposium on the continuing threat posed by illegal drugs to American society, Calvina Fay of the Drug Free America Foundation declared billionaire George Soros to be an "extremely evil person" who wants to legalize dangerous mind-altering drugs. Fay said that Soros, an atheist who is a major funder of the Democratic Party and liberal-left causes, is "our common enemy" and that he is determined to subvert traditional values and undermine America's families.

Soros, convicted of insider trading in France, is a financial speculator and hedge-fund operator who manipulates the currencies of the nations of the world in order to make himself rich. Some of his fortune, estimated at $7 billion, has been put into causes such as abortion rights, gay rights, drug legalization, voting rights for felons, euthanasia, and rights for immigrants and prostitutes. His Open Society Institute even helped underwrite attorney Lynne Stewart, subsequently convicted of helping terrorists. In 2004, he spent about $25 million in an unsuccessful effort to defeat President Bush for re-election.

In this election cycle, according to Roll Call newspaper, Soros has been cutting checks "to organizations expected to launch attacks on GOP House and Senate candidates in the run-up to the Nov. 7 elections." The money is going to a liberal group called Majority Action, "which is targeting GOP candidates…"

In an appearance at the same anti-drug event that featured Calvina Fay, Marc Wheat, staff director and chief counsel of the House Subcommittee on Criminal Justice, Drug Policy and Human Resources, described Soros as someone who has no sense of guilt or responsibility for his actions. He noted that, during a December 20, 1998, interview with 60 Minutes, Soros acknowledged that as a 14-year-old Jewish boy in Hungary, his identity was protected and that he actually assisted in confiscating property from Jews as they were being shipped off to death camps. Asked by interviewer Steve Kroft if he had any sense of guilt over what he did, Soros replied, "no."

In the interview, Soros compared his actions to the operation of economic markets, saying, "…if I weren't there, of course, I wasn't doing it, but somebody else would—would—would be taking it away anyhow." Soros then insisted he was only a "spectator" and had "no role in taking away that property." That is why, he said, "I had no sense of guilt."

Drawing attention to "The Guilt-free Record of George Soros," Wheat noted that Soros has said, in regard to his manipulation of currency markets, "I am basically there to—to make money. I cannot and do not look at the social consequences of—of what I do," and "I don't feel guilty. Because I'm engaged in an amoral activity which is not meant to have anything to do with guilt." He makes money by exploiting human suffering.

Wheat said it is his belief that Soros has found America to be "a hard nut to crack" in terms of weakening America's traditional cultural values and institutions, and that the billionaire would be spending more time and money on activities in Europe, in an effort to fan anti-Americanism there.
