Well, it turns out that Obama and George Soros, aka the devil to conservatives, are not so chummy after all. In fact Obama didn't even pay much attention to Soros' economic tutelage, so I guess there really is no plot for Soros to guide Obama to destroy America...

from Sept 2012 story...


(CBS News) Billionaire George Soros has donated $1 million to Priorities USA Action, a "super PAC" backing President Obama, a spokesperson for the group has confirmed to CBS News.

This is Soros' first donation to Priorities USA Action, though he announced $2 million in donations to two Democratic groups in May. He will also give another $500,000 to super PACs backing Democrats in Congress. Super PACs can raise and spend unlimited funds to influence elections, though they cannot legally coordinate with campaigns.

The New York Times, which first reported Soros' latest donations, reports that they were announced at a Thursday luncheon hosted by the Democracy Alliance, a liberal donor group, and headlined by former President Bill Clinton. The Times reported that others at the luncheon were expected to commit at least $10 million to Democratic super PACs.


Soros does his deeds via 2nd and 3rd parties.....NGOs, SuperPACS, etc.
George Soros gives $1 million to support Obama

Hmmm...

Soros isn't the Devil. He's just 'The man who broke the bank of England'. He is one who actually DID make his billions at the direct expense and hard loss of others.

Having said that? Obama and he wouldn't be chummy. If anything, that would be one of the men who, when he said JUMP!, Obama is asking 'How High?' about mid leap.

I really don't think men at the level Soros is at actually have friends, unless we count the VERY elite handful he shares that rarefied air with. Obama couldn't get a job running his office, would be my guess.

Soros lectured Obama for 45 minutes on the economy. Obama, the authors write, "was annoyed and bored."


It's right in the middle of the article.

Soros goes a long way back with good 'ol Obama....



While George Soros was busy bankrolling his battalion of established activist groups and launching a few new ones of his own, he quite naturally looked toward the upcoming presidential election of 2008 with great anticipation, eagerly awaiting the day when George W. Bush would finally leave office. The question was, who would replace him? In recent years, all indications had been that Soros favored Hillary Clinton above most, if not all, other potential Democratic candidates for President. But now there was a new face on the scene¯a young, charismatic U.S. senator from Illinois named Barack Obama¯who seemed not only to share virtually all of Soros's values and agendas, but also appeared to be a highly skilled politician who stood a good chance of getting elected to the nation's highest office.

In December of 2006, Soros, who had previously hosted a fundraiser for Obama during the latter's 2004 Senate campaign, met with Obama in Soros's New York office. Just a few weeks later¯on January 16, 2007¯Obama announced that he would form a presidential exploratory committee and was contemplating a run for the White House. Within hours, Soros sent the senator a contribution of $2,100, the maximum amount allowable under campaign-finance laws. Later that week, the New York Daily News reported that Soros would support Obama rather than Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination, though Soros pledged to back the New York senator were she to emerge as the nominee.1 But it was clear that Soros considered Obama to be the more electable candidate of the two. Most importantly, Obama's economic and political prescriptions for America were wholly accordant with those of Soros.

Multi-billionaire funder of leftwing causes and groups


I know I know, it's all TLTR.

Soros is a product of the London School of Economics.

They teach the concepts of Fabian Economics.

Very dangerous

Well I'm certainly not the least bit surprised.

Obama has not ever shown any interest in economics !!!


[ other than his own *income* that is ]


... And I guess that proves he and Soros have nothing in common ?

OP, you're right. I sense some tension between the two!

SOROS-FUNDED ACTIVIST: 'I HELPED WRITE OBAMACARE'

The president of a George Soros-funded “progressive” think tank has boasted about helping to write President Obama’s signature healthcare legislation.

Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress, or CAP, appeared Friday night on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” when she was asked by another guest, James Poulos of the Huffington Post, whether she read the text of Obamacare.

“Yes,” she replied. “I helped write the bill. So yes, I read the bill. I read all 2,200 pages of the bill.”

Tanden assumed her CAP position in November 2011 after serving as a senior advisor for the U.S. Health and Human Services. She also worked on Obama’s health-reform team in the White House to help pass the Affordable Care Act.

Tanden argued in a February 2012 CAP report that individual mandates within Obamacare “will be instrumental in achieving near-universal coverage.”


Tanden co-authored the report, entitled, “The Case for the Individual Mandate in Health Care Reform,” with fellow CAP staffer Topher Spiro, who is director of the think tank’s health care policy department.

Spiro’s official CAP bio states she was “a member of the team that drafted the Affordable Care Act of 2010.”

The CAP has long been closely tied to the Obama administration. The center’s co-director, John Podesta, was co-director of Obama’s White House transition team.

A Time magazine article profiled the influence of Podesta’s Center for American Progress in the formation of the Obama administration, stating that “not since the Heritage Foundation helped guide Ronald Reagan’s transition in 1981 has a single outside group held so much sway.”

The CAP is funded by billionaire George Soros. Its board includes Van Jones, Obama’s former “green jobs” czar, who resigned in September 2009 after it was exposed he founded a communist revolutionary organization.

Another primary CAP funder is the Tides Foundation. Tides is also a primary funder to radical groups such as MoveOn.org, Media Matters for America and the now defunct Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN.

Progressives for Sale
Secret corporate cash behind Obama-allied think tank, leak reveals

A liberal think tank with close ties to the Obama administration took money from General Motors and other businesses it did not disclose while campaigning for policies benefitting those companies, according to The Nation magazine.

Members of the “Business Alliance” of the Center for American Progress (CAP) include bailed out car company GM, unsafe Bangladeshi factory utilizer Walmart, and embattled solar energy company First Solar, according to a membership list obtained by the liberal magazine.

CAP, whose chairman is Democratic Party power player John Podesta, was a major proponent of the auto bailout, which used $50 billion of taxpayer money to spare GM a traditional bankruptcy.

The month before GM entered bankruptcy proceedings with the backing of the federal government, CAP posted an article titled, “As General Motors Goes, So Goes the Nation.”

A collapse of the Big Three—GM, Ford, and Chrysler—not only affects their employees, but employees all along the supply chain. The Center for Automotive Research, or CAR, estimates that the total effect of direct, indirect, and expenditure-induced effects of a contraction in U.S. automobile manufacturing will be considerable. For example, a 50-percent reduction in operations would lead to nearly 2.5 million jobs lost and more than $125 billion lost in personal income in the first year.

Such doomsday predictions were important for the administration as it promoted the unpopular bailout, according to U.S. auto expert Ed Niedermeyer.

“That assessment was made by a think tank Center for Automotive Research funded by the Detroit 3 and the UAW,” he said. “They [CAP and CAR] were crucial. … Many other justifications have been given for the auto bailout post-hoc — green cars, exports—but the key assessment was that 1 million jobs would disappear all at once.”

CAP did not respond to requests for comment.

GM was not the only alliance member to receive favorable public treatment from the liberal think tank while donating money to it, according to the Nation.

CAP’s Richard Caperton praised First Solar’s “innovative projects” while testifying to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, but failed to disclose that First Solar was a member of the alliance.

CAP does not disclose Business Alliance members to the public despite its criticism of corporate money in politics. CAP vice president Alex Demots called on Congress to “strengthen disclosure” laws in the wake of the 2010 Citizens United decision:

Though it can no longer prohibit corporate political spending, the federal government is allowed to require corporations to publicly disclose their political spending. For reporting to be effective, Congress would have to take steps to prevent corporations from circumventing reporting requirements and hiding their identities.

The post also talked of the ways that corporations can use intermediaries to donate unlimited sums to politicians and political groups. CAP has received millions of dollars from the Democracy Alliance, a collection of liberal billionaires and millionaires that funnels money into liberal groups without disclosure.

CAP created the Business Alliance in 2007, two years after it started receiving money from Democracy Alliance members. The Business Alliance was instrumental to maintaining the think tank’s growth, the Nation reports.

“After growing rapidly in its first few years, tax records show, CAP’s total assets fell in 2006 for the first time, from $23.6 million to $20.4 million,” the report states. “Assets started growing again in 2007 when CAP founded the Business Alliance, a membership rewards program for corporate contributors, and then exploded when Obama was elected in 2008. According to its most recent nonprofit tax filing, CAP’s total assets now top $44 million, and its Action Fund treasury holds $6 million more.”

While CAP’s lucrative war chest has made it one of the largest liberal think tanks in the country, its political connections have made it the most influential.

Its founder John Podesta served as former President Bill Clinton’s chief of staff before launching the group in 2003. He later oversaw President Obama’s transition team.

Podesta stepped down as its president in 2012, allowing former Clinton and Obama staffer Neera Tanden to take over.
