Billionaire Soros Profits In Adversity,...again

5 November 2008
George Soros, billionaire and philanthropist, yesterday bought a $4.6m (€3.6m) stake in an Australian mining company, the latest in a string of large purchases in what he sees as undervalued companies.

Soros is well-documented for his ability to make money in times of adversity. In 1992, another period of market turmoil, he famously shorted the British pound to earn $1bn in a single day, which led to the currency losing 20% of its value and prompting a downturn in the UK and around the world.

Soros, known for his philathropic efforts, has also recently pledged $500m for Russian health and education programmes over the next three years.

The move, which shocked Moscow and the West, came off the back of Soros' previous donations of $260m in Russia since 1994.

Pay no attention to the man behind the Obama Presidency!

The puppet master has been exposed, the only question is what is he up to?
What does he want with an undervalued mining company?

And why the heavy involvement with Russian health and education programs?

Russia, Socialism and his ties with Barack.

Change is coming alright, something tells me not even Obama knows what's in store.

George Soros' Liberal Agenda Will Carry Weight In Obama Presidency

No man has a larger stake in a president Barack Obama administration than ultra-liberal billionaire George Soros.

This decade, the Hungarian-born hedge fund investor has poured tens of millions of dollars into left-wing attack groups and Democratic campaigns. Soros' grand plan is to destroy the Republican Party and conservative movement, while promoting the wish list of the political Left.

With Democratic victories Tuesday, Soros may be on the cusp of fulfilling his dreams of social reorder -- funded by a fortune of $7 billion he amassed through rampant speculation on world currencies.

He may rightly have claimed any Democrat victory as his own this Election Day and expect President Obama to adopt his American vision.

"Soros is Obama's principal patron," said Richard Lawrence Poe, co-author with David Horowitz of "The Shadow Party," a critical look at the network of left-wing tax-exempt groups the investor sponsors. The groups in turn doled out money to liberal candidates such as Obama.

"He created Obama," Poe told HUMAN EVENTS. "An Obama presidency will be a Soros presidency."

Poe said federal election records show Soros jump-started Obama's 2004 U.S. Senate campaign with $60,000 from himself and family members.

After the giddyness wears off and the honeymoon is over, be sure to keep your eyes not on Obama, but rather on George Soros.

What if he is just always at the right place at the right time? That he has a nose for opportunity where other people are fearful for their own financial situation?

Nice find!

I will be looking forward to more depth in this Soros connection.

If he truly IS a puppet master, and not just a 'member of the team' it should become evident. I hear relatively little of this man.

Do you really believe that is possible?
Let's see... all the time?!

And.. I mean... a BILLION in a single day? What are the odds of that? He had some really heavy investment back then, right? So, one Soros never does that unless for real deals. Just like he's doing now... when he first shorted and profit back then many saw no logic in his investment... much like now, uh?

A nose?
I believe he has BOTH HANDS deep down on this thing.

Seems pretty obvious he would be for the New World Order. Considering the slogan on his organization's web page:

Building A Global Alliance For Open Society

Also of interest are the so called Initiatives.

Good intentions to some, but of course this is a conspiracy site. We have to look at everything carefully. This guy is either the one calling the shots or else a middleman pawn.

You never know, he could be NWO. But for the moment I have decided to be in an optimistic state of mind. Other days (even this morning) I would totally agree with you.

Good call TheBandit795.

I just read your post, and if I were American, I'd be doing the same thing.

Good luck hanging on with your rights!

Perhaps he's buying a mining company because the worlds money will soon be worthless and he'll have a gold mine.

He seems a bit of a Robin Hood character and is involved in a lot of very positive non profit projects, well according to his website and wikipedia so may not be too reliable.

Few quotes from wiki

Drug liberalization Soros has funded worldwide efforts to promote Drug liberalization. In 2008, Soros funded a ballot measure in the state of Massachusetts to decriminalize marijuana possession known as the Massachusetts Sensible Marijuana Policy Initiative. Of the $429,000 raised to promote the measure in 2007, Soros donated $400,000. Soros has also funded similar measures in California, Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Nevada and Maine. [36] Among the drug decriminalization groups that have received funding from Soros are the Lindesmith Center and Drug Policy Foundation.[37] Soros donated $1.4 million to publicity efforts to support California's Proposition 5 in 2008, a failed ballot measure that would have expanded drug rehabilitation programs as alternatives to prison for persons convicted of non-violent drug-related offenses.

Soros was not a large donor to US political causes until the U.S. presidential election, 2004, but according to the Center for Responsive Politics, during the 2003-2004 election cycle, Soros donated $23,581,000 to various 527 Groups dedicated to defeating President Bush. Despite Soros' efforts, Bush was reelected to a second term as president in U.S. presidential election, 2004.

hopefully someone could offer some decent criticism of the guy, cause i got the impression that he is trying to better the world

It looks like the master is extremely busy, preparing for his puppet to "rule".
I tought a President was supposed to govern.

Soros-Funded Democratic Idea Factory Becomes Obama Policy Font
Nov. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Three blocks from the White House, on the 10th floor of a sleek glass building, young workers pound at computers, with giant flat-screen TVs overhead. It has the look and feel of a high-tech startup.

In many ways it is. The product is ideas.

Thanks in part to funding from benefactors such as billionaire George Soros, the Center for American Progress has become in just five years an intellectual wellspring for Democratic policy proposals, including many that are shaping the agenda of the new Obama administration.
