“The Eye of Soros” by Harry Baldwin

From the New York Times news section:

George Soros’s Foundation Pours $220 Million Into Racial Equality Push

By Astead W. Herndon
July 13, 2020
Updated 2:14 p.m. ET

The Open Society Foundations, the philanthropic group founded by the business magnate George Soros, announced on Monday that it was investing $220 million in efforts to achieve racial equality in America, a huge financial undertaking that will support several Black-led racial justice groups for years to come.

The initiative, which comes amid national protests for racial equality and calls for police reform ignited by the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, will immediately reshape the landscape of Black political and civil rights organizations, and signals the extent to which race and identity have become the explicit focal point of American politics in recent years, with no sign of receding. Mr. Soros, who has at times faced smears and anti-Semitism over his role as a liberal megadonor, is also positioning his foundation near the forefront of the protest movement. …

“There is this call for justice in Black and brown communities, an explosion of not just sympathy but solidarity across the board,” Mr. Gaspard said. “So it’s time to double down. And we understood we can place a bet on these activists — Black and white — who see this as a moment of not just incrementalism, but whole-scale reform.”

… “The calls have been emotional, she said, as groups that have long felt marginalized by mainstream philanthropy find out their work will be sustained and supported. …

That seems to imply that some of these groups are dubious fringe operations that other liberal philanthropists have shied away from being involved with.

In recent years, Mr. Soros has become a favorite target of some conservatives and right-wing groups, which have sometimes used anti-Semitic tropes to try to recast his giving as an effort to seek world influence.

Between the local grants and the millions for Black-led organizations, however, Mr. Soros and his foundation have helped answer the question of whether the social justice groups that have dominated the current moment are here to stay.

Alexander Soros, who serves alongside his father as the deputy chair of Open Society, said in a statement that the new investment was a response to a time “for urgent and bold action.”

“These investments will empower proven leaders in the Black community to reimagine policing, end mass incarceration and eliminate the barriers to opportunity that have been the source of inequity for too long,” he said.

By the way, perhaps the most important local election this fall will be the Los Angeles County (population 10 million) district attorney race where Soros money is backing the white male challenger to the black woman incumbent Jackie Lacey. Why? Because Lacey doesn’t like crime.

Los Angeles has had some successes in recent years in fighting crime: not New York in the 1990 home runs, but better than you might expect.

Back in March, a Black Lives Matter mob invaded Lacey’s porch in the wee hours of the morning and her husband waved his gun around to get them to back off:

In case you are wondering, the DA’s husband is not iSteve favorite Willie Brown, he’s just another guy who looks like Black Pepe the Frog.

    Let me go on record as someone who would love to see us end mass incarceration of minorities. I really would.

    However, for that to happen minorities will have to stop committing so many crimes. I am willing to accept the idea that whites and minorities are not treated the same in the criminal justice system. White people hire lawyers who get them off or out on bail while minorities get stuck. Yes, there is that inequality that comes from whites having more money than blacks and Hispanics.

    But the stubborn fact still remains that blacks and Hispanics commit crimes at a much higher rate than whites and Asians. That has to change for their experience in the criminal justice system to change like they and Soros would like.

    Expecting radical change in results without radical change in behavior is simply ridiculous. Even the far left wants to be safe.

    It’s not a conspiracy theory to say that these attorneys and Soros have a lot of black blood on their dirty hands.

    How many black lives were extinguished due directly to their decisions? Obviously, these black lives meant NOTHING to Soros.

    Aside from warlords in Africa and Chinese fentanyl makers, there may be no one person alive today responsible for more BLACK DEATHS than soros.

    Shame!

    Perhaps some of the families who have lost family members to murderers released by soros DA’s can sue for some of this money, and in so doing prevent further black deaths.

    I’m all for calling out Soros, whose money is as insidious as advertised if you really look into it. But there are plenty of other billionaires—many who made their fortunes in the US—raising and spending money against the American way of life. After snooping around a little the Indian ebay founder is another one I noticed right away. For example, there are well funded legal efforts to destroy election laws around the country in the midst of an election. Look to your battleground states. It was going to happen anyways but covid-19 has given them an impetuous to try and burn everything to the ground and one of the reasons the covid fear mongering continues.

    Some of it is just dark money without a home. Guys like Gates and Buffet just spend money to make themselves feel better and shield themselves from the ‘evil billionaire’ label in their twilight years. Others actively look to undermine America and it’s democratic culture and are willing to spend significant sums to do so.

    A good start is to look at the funding of something like BLM and work backwards. It usually takes two or three steps since it’s hidden in several front organizations (grift for connected people’s kids and a nice buffer for the donors), but eventually the names come out if you want to pull out the disclosures. It’s a rabbit hole to go down. But we’re fooling ourselves if we think it’s just Soros or a few foreigners. It’s not.

Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez from the Kirschenbaum estate is a youngish rose pink that’s acidic on the tongue and strangely murky, totally lacking transparency, nearly undrinkable yet perfect for communion at a Black Mass. – Jim Jones Temple Rating: 9.90.

    Hungarians of Soros’ generation heard, from parents and grandparents, of the terrible years after WWI, when Red and Black militias roamed about. People who went through that experience, even ardent libertarians like Friedrich Hayek, were not keen on allowing the public to arm itself.

    Bzzt, wrong. The age-adjusted Hispanic violent crime rate is lower than the white rate, as shown by Ron Unz in his multiple articles on this website, such as The Myth of Hispanic Crime. Hispanics are committing less crime today than whites were in the 1970s, and the US violent cime rate in 2019 was significantly reduced compared to 1973.

    He hasn’t been seeking influence around the World, he’s been buying it. And it’s working. He’s been instrumental in putting in DAs who have effectively decriminalized a lot of crime – in San Francisco, Philadelphia, Chicago, St. Louis, etc. To say nothing of his attempts to put left-wing hacks into Secretary of State positions to influence the outcomes of elections. And to say more nothing about influencing other governments around the World, particularly in Eastern Europe.

    George Soros (né Georg Schwartz) experienced National Socialism at first hand as a youngster. He has admitted collaborating with Nazis to identify local Jews in Hungary.

    Details of his actions during the chaotic (and interesting) early post-war period are extremely murky. It is clear that he built high-level connections among the various groups trying to take over Hungary under Soviet tutelage before arriving in England. His alliance-building will have involved secret services on both sides of the Iron Curtain.

    The early experience of National Socialist tactics proved formative. Simply put, Soros saw the National Socialists’ rise to power not as a sad tragedy but as a workable MODEL TO ADAPT to different times and places.

    Holding a cell phone vertically in portrait mode allows you move through the urban battlefield with little fear of accidentally dropping your device, as compared to holding it in landscape, where you tend to hold just it by the top and bottom edges.

    “Black people can hold pistols horizontally”… since the standard “gangsta” gun is now 9mm auto pistol, the recoiling slide will tend to flip the pistol on a horizontal plane, increasing dispersion. Ipso facto, they are creating a wide fan shaped zone of death. Maybe they consider pistols being fire this way to be quasi-mini-BARS; in the 1960s Combat! series, the BAR man was typically shown firing his weapon sideways.

    While most white people don’t have money, most people with money are white. So most of the people with expensive private lawyers are white. These expensive lawyers do get different results than public defenders. I am saying that I can understand why nonwhites resent this. Actually a lot of whites resent rich whites who get off for crimes too.

    But like I said, as long as blacks and Hispanics commit crimes at the rate they do, they cannot expect mass incarceration to end.

    so true. The leftist agenda will bring pain and destruction to blacks, hispanics and asians. The leftist agenda will keep blacks down, keep them dependent on handouts and keep them in poor schools with incompetent teachers in areas blighted by crime, gangs and drugs. It may even push millions of asians and hispanics to start voting for republican candidate.. It seems like the democrats will start alienating East Asians and hispanics.

    @Cato

    It’s part of a wider strategy to force blacks to leave US Metro areas by nearly any means necessary. The Rockefeller and Ford Foundations heavily bankrolled black groups to move into the city to force white Catholic/union members out. But it turned out blacks were far worse than the bottom level of any Catholic ethnic group. Behavioralist protocols for raising black IQ ( schools, Head Start) failed utterly and blacks could never take over the cognitive ability/work ethic demonstrated by the white Catholic working class at manufacturing factories. So, city elites have been stuck paying black underclass welfare bills and policing for over 50 years now. They really want to be free from that kind of financial responsibility and political liability.

    Now, they’re trying to finally expunge blacks out of the inner cities. Via means of cultural “shock therapy” by instigating black violence to encourage black families to move to the suburbs. The thing is, you need lots of money to fund BLM/Antifa and grease the wheels of regional political bodies. Cops need immediate orders from above to not interrupt Antifa from destroying statues. Other organizations that are not Soros aligned would be arrested on-the-spot (think Spotted Owl Society) for taking over a section of Freeway.

    Bullshit.

    Latin American countries have far higher violent crime rates than European countries, and US states with large Latino populations have much higher violent crime rates than whiter states.

    The FBI crime data lumps Hispanics mostly in with whites, so the official data may not reveal it, but anyone who has ever opened a newspaper or done jury duty knows the score. Hispanics in the US may not be nearly as violent as blacks, but they are substantially more violent than whites. I would guesstimate that Latino murder rates are probably at least three times higher than white murder rates. That’s simple logic. Murder rates in states that are mostly white, like Utah, Iowa, Washington, Oregon, and Idaho, are substantially lower than states with higher Latino populations such as New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, Nevada, and California.

    Nearly ALL cases end up in pleas — all of them — you hear about a few high profile cases where someone gets off due to whatever (Cop screw up, weird facts….) but that is how it is, the System CANNOT function in any other way– if you don’t plea and you lose most Judges are going to slam you — they get rated by the Supreme Court (or whatever the High Court is called) on how they MOVE THEIR DOCKET and the only case they care about is the next case, move them! — As Attorney you have to tell your Client if the offer is 3 months (and they be out in less than 2) that if they try it and LOSE — the Judge is going to hit them with the 5 year possible max. — because the Judge ALWAYS does that because? They want PLEAS — to move their Docket — go to trial and lose? Get whacked.

    I’ve been both a Prosecutor, Public Defender and Private Practice — that’s how it works, the “Public” is clueless — it has ZERO to do with “Justice”. There are specialists in DUI who might be able to do something (again weird fact scenarios…) but generally it’s a plea of some sort in almost all cases — most cases aren’t defensible– confession, outrageously guilty– there is very little “Perry Mason” going on contrary to TV BS….

    There are Public Defenders who get just as good results as most all Private Attorneys also– they’re in the pit all day long every day and know what is up but they can have a case load that is way too much….– The reason Blacks have a big problem in the Criminal Justice System, from my personal observation, is REPEAT OFFENDERS — you screw up once or whatever — you generally can get some kind of break — when it’s your 3rd,4th, 12th REPEAT of robbery, dope dealing…whatever — you are going to get SLAMMED in most Court Rooms whether the Judge is Black (they can be tougher) or White (at least up until recently where Soros has been getting actual Communists in to destroy the system and just flush out criminals into the community in his attempt to destroy the USA or whatever it is he’s doing….) — most States have very serious penalties for being a REPEAT OFFENDER — this is what Blacks are running into from my experience and getting slammed on — they get out of prison and they do it again — then they get slammed (if your White and do the same you get treated EXACTLY the same but it seems having got whacked a bit once or twice most Whites wise up and move on to more profitable legal pursuits….) — when you work in the Public Defenders Office you actually, even more than at the Prosecutor’s Office, realize that there is in fact a large class of people who are CAREER CRIMINALS — it’s what they do and they prey on the Black Community generally, some people are just strong arm robbers, some are Dope Dealers — it’s what they do….– nothing is as portrayed in the Mainslime Media or “TV”….

    Whites accounted for 64% of adults but 30% of prisoners. And while Hispanics represented 16% of the adult population, they accounted for 23% of inmates.”

    To get the relative rate for the two groups then: (23%/16%)/(30%/64%). That comes to 3.066667. Which is to say that Hispanic adults are, per capita, three times as likely as whites to be in prison. That’s exactly the guesstimate I made in my above comment before seeing your numbers.

    So Hispanics are about three times as likely as whites to commit serious crimes, and blacks, in turn are probably about three times as likely to do so as Hispanics.

    The (((Soros))) money is real and not a conspiracy, but $220 million is not that much in a nation of 320 million people. It’s not chump change, to be sure,

    It’s not dropped across the country in a uniform blanket of small change, though, it is consistently targeted to specific offices in specific states. Like the Secretary of State of Minnesota who ensured the election of Senator Smalley, and now like the DA of St. Louis, Philly, etc. Key points are taken and will be difficult to change.

    The Open Society foundation has been funding drug legalization efforts and gun grabs for close to 20 years, in addition to Senate races & meddling in the Presidential races. Kapo Soros is actually doing what the liars in the MSM claimed the Russians were doing.

    but the real leftist hive is higher education, which is an industry worth trillions, nearly all of it subsidized by the government.

    That’s Gramsci’s march through the institutions, it’s been a problem for a generation. Soros apparently doesn’t need to meddle there, other orgs such as the Ford foundation, the CIA, etc. have been doing his work for years.

    Half these Antifa and BLM-types are probably either perpetual graduate students or lecturers at universities, and a fair number of rioters and looters are undergraduates…

    If you watch vids from Portland, Oregon long enough you’ll notice that a lot of Antifa in the street are high school aged or college dropout age. But the leaders who order them around are typically men in their 30’s, with discretely worn radios and a steady supply of messengers on bikes.

    Displacing young white men out of the job market with young brown men from the 3rd world is obviously a great idea, for a while, if you’re a hedge fund manager. However it does create a restless, frustrated pool of potential troublemakers. Of course, if you want to tear down the middle class in order to ensure minimal competition for the upper class, that’s a small price to pay.

    Because the upper middle and upper class don’t really pay. yet.

  63. I’ve been waiting for the Soros topic to pop up on Isteve. I’m well versed in political ideologies, they fascinate me, I’ve been tracking them like sports teams for 55 years. What does he want? What is his ideology? I can find nothing other than shallow internet chatter – please instruct me if there are any considered studies of him.

    He’s not a communist, he swooped in like a vulture on the collapsing communist countries. He’s not a Zionist, and we know what he did to Jews under the Nazis. He’s not a liberal: he is trying his hardest to destroy actual liberal societies. He loves criminals of any kind, illegal aliens, cabaret degeneracy, he hates countries, families, legal order, state protection of citizens from violent predators. He acts like he’s a Loki-loving, death-metal, nihilistic anarchist, but why? What’s the motive? What’s the endgame?

    He borrows the term “Open Society” from his supposed mentor, Karl Popper, but Soros’ work is exactly contrary to the spirit and letter of Popper. Popper demolished unfalsifiable theories, and the woke ideologies Soros funds work by being unfalsifiable. Popper rejected Marx and Freud in their entirety, in part because of the unfalsifiability of their theories. Popper opposed totalitarianism, Soros funds social totalitarianism that threatens to convert into the political version. Popper rejects holism, the idea of seeing a group as larger than the sum of its members, and endorses methodological (and moral) individualism. Soros funds noxious identity politics. Popper rejected historicism, the idea that history develops in a certain direction, that social science should predict humankind’s future, and that politics should ease movement in the progressive direction. Historicism leads to authoritarianism, Popper concludes. Soros seeks to bend the arc of history. Popper was a fallibilist, Soros a propounder of dogmatic policies, who considers himself a living god (“It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.”)

    Soros pretends to be an intellectual, but there is no coherence in his views. Usually I can quickly make sense of someone’s political ideology (Trotsky, Moldbug, even Hitler), but I can’t make any sense of his. Is it just raw hatred of ordinary people and society? Or what? Genuinely puzzled.

    A good start is to look at the funding of something like BLM and work backwards. It usually takes two or three steps since it’s hidden in several front organizations (grift for connected people’s kids and a nice buffer for the donors), but eventually the names come out if you want to pull out the disclosures. It’s a rabbit hole to go down. But we’re fooling ourselves if we think it’s just Soros or a few foreigners. It’s not.

    You are right. The Koch brothers, for example, put a lot of money into “criminal justice reform”. Off hand, can anyone think of a billionaire who doesn’t subsidize cultural rot with his or her charitable donations?

    Soros and his father actively collaborated with the Nazis

    No, they didn’t.

    When the Nazis’ occupied Hungary, Soros was placed in hiding with a government official for a few weeks.

    Hiding from them yet collaborating with them?

    During this time the official was sent to inventory the estate of a wealthy Jew who had already left for Lisbon, and took Soros with him.

    That’s it. Soros in his own words said that he had no role. Soon after Soros was sent to live with his mother under a fake identity.

    In addition did you know that the ‘happiest year of his life’ referred to what Soros called his father’s ‘heroism’ in helping to save jews from the occupation? See p. 5 of his autobiography.

    Why would 14-year old Soros be allowed to ‘collaborate’ if his family were helping Jews escape?

    Here’s the allegedly damning video:

    Soros says he was watching property being confiscated while the interviewer had earlier made a subtle implication about people being taken away.

    Interviewer:

    For example “I’m Jewish and here I am watching these people go. I could just as easily be there. I should be there”

    To be charitable people may have picked that up implication and run with it. But Soros doesn’t mention watching people, he’s talking about witnessing property confiscation.

    At no time does he mention taking part or helping in any way but the mere fact of his being a witness makes him complicit apparently.

    Wrong. Ron Unz has already demolished the “Hispanics are counted as white” argument. Prison inmate statistics are very accurate due to the necessity of classifying inmates according to race and gang status. Hispanic majority cities like El Paso are consistently safer than white .ajority cities in America. The owner of this website already demonstrated this multiple times.

    https://www.unz.com/runz/the-myth-of-hispanic-crime/

    Take five minutes to consider the list of America’s urban crime rates provided on Wikipedia, and you will notice an intriguing pattern.[8] Nearly all of the most heavily Latino cities have low or even extremely low crime rates, and virtually none have rates much above the national average. Eighty percent Latino El Paso has the lowest homicide and robbery rates of any major city in the continental United States. This is not what we would expect to find if Hispanics had crime rates far higher than whites. Individual cities may certainly have anomalously low crime rates for a variety of reasons, but the overall trend of crime rates compared to ethnicity seems unmistakable.

    Even more striking, the average crime rates for the two most Hispanic cities on our list—Santa Ana and El Paso, each 80 percent Hispanic—are actually below our white urban average, and below the very low crime figures for 86 percent white Lincoln, the single whitest city in the nation. So although some heavily Hispanic cities have higher crime rates than some heavily white ones, the pattern seems very mixed.

How is all that working out for the racially-less-homogenous-than-North Korea country known as the USA? The Kims must be choking with laughter.

As for a city like El Paso or San Antonio and overall crime rates, again what is their negro population? That seems to me, having travelled to every major city in North America as well as several European and Central American city, the primary determinant.

    Finally a reasonable comment. I would add just two thoughts:

    a) Soros’ influence is overrated. He made literally billions through his big speculations in the 90’s & early 21st C. His funding of Antifa & anarcho-communist rabble is minuscule: it amounts to perhaps 20-30 million $. This is not the amount of money you invest to “change the world”. Other, bigger players (financially) are certainly more active, but we don’t hear about them- Soros was very vocal in past 2-3 decades. I think one of his sons is currently much more active than he is.

So- how we had not heard a squeak about who funds all those millions of “migrants”, from mid-East, central America & Africa, supplies them with food, clothing, cash, credit cards & possibility to draw loads of money from ATMs, using bank accounts which popped up out of nowhere? I’ve watched not a few videos where journalists interview “migrants” who had had their credit cards taken away by the police. 10 times. And then a journalist asks a “migrant”: 10 times? Who gave you a new card after you “lost” previous one? Who gave you the number of the new account to draw cash?

    Silence, idiotic grinning.

    Does anyone of sane mind think that it would be difficult to expose this global scam? And that Merkel, Macron, Trump, even Orban are not some kind of accomplices? Why would it be difficult to publish, urbi et orbi, accounts & names of those feeding colored invasion of Europe & America? Publish it, at least Internet is still free, expose those bastards.

    All things considered -the nature of their crimes, criminal records, histories of violence and criminality, usually beginning at age 14 or 15 or even 13 or 12 for inner-city black males- black males are the most indulged, by far, of all criminals and criminal defendants. Black male criminal have been systemically coddled since the 1960s and they’re more coddled presently, since the election of Trump and the war on police and “criminal justice reform,” than ever before, and will be even more so in the near and distant future when the left, increasingly nonwhite, controls everything.

    One could give myriads and myriads and myriads of examples to confirm this reality. Only 25% of the shootings in Chicago, virtually all of them committed by violent recidivist black male criminals who should be in prison and most of whom should have been buried in prison long ago, result in arrests. And what percentage of these arrests result in prosecutions, convictions, and jail and prison sentences? Can one imagine the reaction if white males were committing murders and shootings in Chicago and other cities at even a tiny fraction of the black rate? Such anarchy and mayhem by whites males would be ended at its inception by ruthless coercion.

    And then we have the black thug in NYC with 103 prior arrests, including the “forcible touching” and sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl, who was free to walk the streets, completely unsupervised, to assault a 92-year-old white female. And he was released, without bail, shortly after his arrest. Would any white male, with 13 or even 3 prior arrests, including the sexual assaujlt of a 13-year-old or a 33-year-old women, be free to walk the streets and assault an old lady or anyone of ether sex? One could go on and on with myriads of similar examples.

    BLM and Antifas are the spawn of Gramsci, a follower of Marx, so they are neo-marxists.

    The left needs conflicto to thrive, to gain traction, so to speak, and break social cohesion in an established society. Gramsci, a deadly communist thinker, realized that it was very difficult to break up a Christian country, where individuals were deeply rooted in God, family and country. That people were poor was not sufficient grounds for taking up the pitchforks, if there were other sources of contentment and a basic trust in the justness of the political order. Marx was mistaken, and Trotsky’s vanguards were never going to be enough. So he advocated for “a long march through the institutions”, in order to remake the culture. It’s not the economy. It’s the culture, stupid. He’s the father of the Frankfurt School thinkers.

    As further background, around 150 years ago, our current elites started a pincer movement. From the top, elite secret societies (freemasonry) asked for divorce laws, secular schooling and ending the European monarchies. From below, grass roots protest movements like Young Europe were promoted. (Yes, Palmerston was a bad guy.) New countries sprung up, like Italy, Chezchoslovakia and even Latin American countries. (The removal of the temporal power of the Pope was and the persecution of the Church in different countries was part of the strategy.) So the monarchies went down and were duly discredited after 1918. And it sounded good, too: the right of people to self-determination, universal suffrage, separation of Church and State, protection for minorities. Still, the new political order, based on democratic nation-States, was a source of true identity for the common man. Man can easily love the land that saw him born.

    Today, the absence of God, the almost complete breakdown and discredit of the family unit across the West, increased mobility and mass psychological programming means the individual is “free”, but alienated from sources of meaning. Having taken down God and the family, we now living through the process of taking down the countries, and the belief in the intrisic legitimacy and justness of the body politic.

    For the uprooted individual, new sources of meaning are provided, through the creation of fake identities. You can be an activist for woman´s rights! gay rights! For Mother Earth and against irresponsible Boomers! No, for transgender, or better yet “black bodies”! I´m sorry to say the “White” identity movements fits neatly within this overall strategy. Mass migration is one more tactic. And they still do the pincer movement: laws pushing “rights” from above, plus directed grass-roots movements from below.

    Scientific mass manipulation, freemason strategy and Gramscian thought met up and bore fruit. And thus the ancient Christian moral and political order, based on a community of families with “liberty under law”, is broken up. The West, rudderless and degraded, knows not what hit it.

    Saying all “identity politics” movements are neo-marxisms is correct and gets the point across. They seek to overthrow the current imperfect but legitimate political order, or “system”. The activist craze, the networks of NGOs, are the modern versión of Palmerston`s Young Europe cells. Soros’s unveiling of his 220 million funding of racial equality is ominous.

    Thanks for the informative comment. That description matches my vague impression of what is going on. The plea bargain percentage is the opaque part of the system that gives well meaning people the ability to extrapolate the racial ratios into systematic bias. There are certainly innocent people who plea because the potential result of a trial is terrifying. There’s also the relative weight of defendants’ testimony vs. cop’s testimony, which is doing alot of work in woke heads but isn’t a non-issue either.

    But as you note, the system cannot function if fewer people take plea deals. As in so many domains, the problem is inhuman scale. The solution is not on the table yet, still unthinkable for the great and good. I wonder what libs will think of hood justice when it gets real. TBH I expect it would improve some areas, but it might increase segregation a little.

    Somewhat related, there is a symmetry one noticed in the crime debate. Our enemies pounce on individual incidents demonstrating police brutality, bias, etc. We look at the numbers and say meh. On the legal side, we have our individual cases where we ask WTF was this guy not in jail, Willy Horton, etc. But the plea bargain numbers, petty corruption, private prisons, just the plain VOLUME of prisoners… they have a point, and not reforming really isn’t a sustainable option.

Soros is consciously working to destroy the greatest, freest, most productive civilization the world has seen. Soros is a real-life existential threat Bond villain. And he’s succeeding!

    Soros could have dealt with his feelings from his experience under the Horthy regime and German occupation–anger? fear? shame in hiding with collaborators?–by becoming a super-Jew (religious or ethnic), or making aliyah and becoming an Israeli patriot, or becoming an American patriot, or–more complicated–a champion of Western civilization, it’s values, science, culture and the role of Jews in it. But no, Soros’s solution was that the West needed to be “opened”–more or less as a faithful woman must be “opened” to be enjoyed by all comers. Soros’s answer to the shame of his youth, was that the West, it’s people and culture must be raped and destroyed. And he’s worked tirelessly to that end.

    Why hasn’t Soros been arrested and indicted for various crimes? Why don’t mayors, governors, senators, members of congress, etc., and Trump call for him to be arrested and prosecuted and, hopefully, convicted and sentenced to prison for the rest of his life or at least sued in civil court and fined billions of dollars. Such actions, criminal and civil, should have been enacted long ago, immediately after his funding of this reign of anarchy and terror commenced, and would have prevented a scourge and welter of violence and destruction, including deaths and murders.

    Places that are majority Latino with high crime rates include San Bernadino (lots of blacks) and Albequerque (almost no blacks). Lots of rape, robbery, and agg assault there in the latter.

    Thousands of children have died in the migration of the third world to the west. Most by drowning, some from suffocation in container trucks, others murdered by other migrants or their coyotes. All the deaths can be blamed on negligence and callousness by their families and the organizations behind the migrations.

    The photo of the drowned little boy moved a million hearts, and millions of Africans and Asians into Europe. Questions about context, causes, staging and manipulation were impermissible.

    George is being used as a prop, as Alan Kurdi was used. A death exploited by people interested only in advancing their narrative and their agenda. George was just a black guy in the right place at the right time. If not for the video, we would’ve had only the mute and inglorious demise of George Floyd instead of World War Floyd.

    The Clintonite faction has dominated the party more or less when Bill Clinton became President in 1992. Mainly fueled by support from rich urban yuppies that could financially dominate everything. They could successfully keep the other factions in line with money and Boomer white votes. But the 2008 Great Recession creates severe fractures that Clintonite/New Democrat fixers like Rahm Emanuel couldn’t fix nor manage in the long term. (Same thing happened with Republicans, but the economic fallout was different.) But the Clintonites appears to be in terminal decline.

    Is GMax ratting out her network?

    Maybe.

    It hasn’t been really noticed much because the press doesn’t report on it, but busts of pedo networks and kiddie porn have been much higher since 2017. Perhaps higher in the last 3 years than in the previous 8 years, for some reason. Not an obvious thing, but it’s been happening.

    Jizzilane might be able to talk about some more interesting pedo porners from the first person, though, and that would be just fine.

    Not a homework assignment, just a less one-sided look into matters. iSteve (and posters such as yourself) claims he favors the rule of law, but he conveniently ignores important events pertaining to that concept.

  161. The many subtle deflections from Soros’ culpability for massive illegal immigration, freeing of criminals, fixing of elections, race baiting, looting and rioting, color revolutions, and destruction of economies are curious to behold. I notice a pattern. A Soros boiler room at work.

  162. Ending mass incarceration is a cinch. End the War on Drugs. Problem solved.

    But they would never do that. Because then what would they, and I mean Soros and his ilk, have to use to keep society divided?

    It’s just like abortion. The anti-abortionists don’t want abortion ended. Because then what would bring out the troops? I can just hear the crickets at the voting booths. I can just see the winger candidates, tearing their clothes, pulling out their hair, wailing, and covering themselves in ashes.

    Foundation influence go’s waaaay back.

    But there is always a lot of money behind the contrary opinion. Over time the charitable deduction transformed Carnegie’s philosophy into Washington’s law. The “compassionate conservative” of his time, the engineer Herbert Hoover, turned his success at using charities to feed much of Europe during World War I into his calling card for the presidency. Bringing philanthropic organizations into government became his signature reform. His successor, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, in building his New Deal, wanted no part of foundations. Harry Hopkins, a top advisor to FDR who was himself a veteran of the foundation world, warned the president that private interests backed charitable organizations mostly as a means of running them, and could take his programs over. The Kennedy and Johnson administrations invited philanthropists back. The Ford Foundation, established to allow the family members of Henry Ford to keep control of their automobile company in the face of the inheritance tax that went into effect in 1936, became a pillar of the civil rights movement.

    Its officers did community organizing and set up the inner-city community action agencies that were command centers of the War on Poverty. “In effect,” wrote the political scientist and later senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, “the Public Affairs Program of the Ford Foundation invented a new level of American government.” The most effective giving leveraged private fortunes into government power, and the most effective government power leaned more and more on private fortunes. “Farsighted philanthropists,” wrote former Clinton aide Matt Miller, “all come to realize that advocacy—i.e., efforts to shape how public resources are utilized—offers the best possible bang for the charitable buck.” What Harry Hopkins had seen as the biggest danger of philanthropy, the domination of democratic institutions by energetic and moneyed elites, Miller now saw as its promise. Despairing of the country’s “two-party tyranny,” he even called, midway through the Obama administration, for a “patriotic billionaire” to make a run for president as a way of shaking things up.

    It’s a shame that Bloomberg only won Samoa…

    The reason is simple–to inflate the White crime rate, and diminish the black-White crime ratio.

    It seems that they have greater incentive to bury the hispanic crime because of their dependence on mass immigration. If they don’t count hispanic criminals, they don’t exist. In this understanding then it also makes sense to encourage the innate negro criminality as a “look – squirrel” distraction from the civilizational destruction and genocide being wrought as government policy.

    The effect on the negro:white ratio is just a fat juicy bonus playing to current political interests. Unless they have a secret plan to import a hundred million fresh negroes from Africa, the negroes are permanently just a minority at 15% maximum. The beauty of having the negro around as your pet crimewave is that no matter how badly they behave, white guilt can be counted on to accept full blame.

    If the negro:white crime ratio was going to change things politically, they wouldn’t publish it (or at least a remotely truthful version of it) at all. Remember that negroes are not a policy issue that can be reversed, mass immigration can.

    The worst diagnosis is that there is no some huge conspiracy- if it were, it could be dealt with. The degeneracy runs deeper.

    Everyone wants (hopes for) an easy answer. This disaster, I am increasingly convinced, is on a biological level. It is definitely within our own population and seems closely related to visible sign of adverse mutations.

    We sure seemed to produce stronger adults when half the population died in infancy or adolescence.

    Try breeding livestock or show dogs the way we breed humans and see where it gets you. If we are going to have a policy of “everyone lives as long as technologically possible,” we must have some scheme for removing the unfit pre-fertilization.

    Everyone wants (hopes for) an easy answer.

    I don’t expect an easy answer. I was just pointing out that the answer includes things that Mr. Kaldian doesn’t seem inclined to address.

  170. I went and reviewed the 60 minutes interview with Soros that was supposedly misinterpreted by conspiracy theorists. It’s as shocking now as when I first viewed it. Background: Soros’ father paid a Christian Hungarian official to pretend to be George’s godfather. That official’s job was to inventory seized property of Jews, and George accompanied him on that job. The interviewer says, “My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours…went out and in fact helped with the confiscation of the property of Jews.”

    Soros: “That’s right. Yes.”

    The interviewer asked Soros whether that was difficult, and Soros replied, “No, not at all. It created no problem at all.”

    The interviewer is troubled. OK, that could be journalist’s sensationalism or bias, we see plenty of that from journalists. But when the interviewer presses Soros, he answers that, “There was no sense I shouldn’t be there. Well, actually, in a funny way, it’s just like in markets. If I weren’t there (of course I wasn’t doing it), but somebody else would be taking it away anyhow. Whether I was there or not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. I had no role in taking away that property, so I had no sense of guilt.”

    First he affirms that he did help with the confiscation of property. Of course, as a 14-year old, he was not the primary author of the action, but he acknowledges taking part. Sensing his blunder, it seems to me, he shifts to the ambiguity, “I wasn’t doing it”: he was not the primary author. And then what I think is a strong tell of prevarication: even if he had been doing it, so what, if he hadn’t helped, someone else would have done so. Which is it? You didn’t do anything to help, or you did help but that didn’t matter morally because someone else could have been ordered to do the same thing?

    It’s of the same ilk as, “Some people did something.” Or, Yeah, I killed him, but not really; a lot of people had it out for that mofo, and, if not me, someone else would have popped him.

    Those are NGOs composed completely or predominantly of European Italians, Germans, Spaniards, Dutch, Swedes, French…. mostly SJW females, hipsters, “progressives” who belong to the New Left, and are funded by the very governments they loathe & the very countries they live in.

    Jewish groups, both European & Israeli, tend to fall into three categories:

    1. idealistic idiots who are out to “save the world”
    2. Jewish identitarian idealistic idiots because of “never again”
    3. alienated Jewish paranoiacs who hate the Western culture & try to damage it as much as they can because all Europeans have nothing else to do except plotting a remake of Wannsee Conference

    This is- nothing.

    Soros claimed he intended to invest in migrants.

    1. there is no proof he did
    2. even if he did, it was a humanitarian effort (at least in theory) to try to help those people who were already in the US (I haven’t seen it made any difference)
    3. it had nothing to do with pushing/”enticing” all those coloreds into movement (unlike, say, Erdogan or various NGOs)
    4. had he transgressed financial or any other political deals/agendas that would have imperiled contemporary Euro-American elites & their short-sighted plans, he would have been epsteined.

    “Funny, ha, ha…”

    Listen, if you seriously believe Soros is a monster and is being protected, why don’t you take charge of the situation? You have allies who are more than willing to be of assistance. You have the means, the motive, the information at your disposal. Otherwise, you are simply aiding and abetting him.

    “so I guess you admire Soros and back his funding of Antifa and BLM and crusade to destroy America and Western Civilization.”

    LOL, actually, I fund HIM!

    As New Dealer stated, “What does he want? What is his ideology? I can find nothing other than shallow internet chatter – please instruct me if there are any considered studies of him”. Perhaps you are willing to share your archived materials that you collected that will be used by law enforcement after you make that citizen’s arrest. He is the Devil Incarnate, right? And you have a duty to humanity…

    Although, even Mr. Sailer offers his typical “I’m saying it, but not saying it” schtick** when he says “Maybe George Soros is a rich old man (he turns 90 next month) who invested a lot of money in people he thought were the good guys only to have them go nuts.”

    **Sailer’s “Plausible Undeniability”–Incorporate “winks and nods” in the narrative for your audience to understand your alleged stone cold truth is in reality wild speculation.

It began with opinion from a political standpoint and it has morphed into “fact”. Tell you “facts” you do not want to hear, then those “facts” are not real. And [poof], “Fake News” is born.

    And the names of those organizations are? What? I cited actual organizations. You cited nothing concrete. You just waved your hand and said “you know, people”. Get back to me when you have something substantive to say.

    Mind you, there undoubtedly are such European NGOs as you mention. And I think it likely, that if you look at who consitutes their boards and staff, you will find a disproportionate number who belong to a particular tribe.

    Ending mass incarceration is a cinch. End the War on Drugs.

    Maybe, but in a great many cases police targeting drugs ends up with blacks picking up minor felony convictions for other things, and though not imprisoned their lives being degraded with suspended licenses ECT ECT. They also feel disrespected, which has profound health effects. The black homicide rate may go down, but heart trouble and such is increased massively I am sure.

    A Broken Windows or zero tolerance style of policing being continually doubled down on after it has reached the point of diminishing returns is the problem, and merely halting the war on drugs would leave the current mode of law enforcement in place. There needs to be targeting of heavy duty gangsters directly with the will to leave them alone rather than alienate the wider community, and other people cut some slack–at least in their own neighborhoods.

    The police need to have training in how to turn a blind eye when that is warranted by the situation, and how to cope with arresting the recaltracent without ‘dealing with them’. Stores like the one Floyd went into should have been less insouciant about taking bad money and calling the cops, but they will simply disappear if they are scared to turn it down.
