Just a little rundown on old George.

Former member of the Board of Directors for The Council On Foreign Relations

Funded the 2003 Rose Revolution in Georgia.

In 1990 saved George W. Bush from bankruptcy, in 2004 publicly committed himself to keep Bush from being reelected as president.

In 1992 "broke the bank" in England's Black Wednesday profiting over 1 billion U.S. dollars.

In 2002 Soros was convicted in France of insider trading and fined 2.3 million dollars for his role with Société Générale.

More Rothschild ties.

Richard Katz Soros Quantum Fund member of Bord of Directors. Also Katz also on the board of the London N.M. Rothschild and Sons merchant bank, and the head of Rothschild Italia S.p.A. of Milan.

Nils Taube (now deceased) member of Soros Quantum Funds and partner of the investment group St .James Place Capital, owned by Nataniel Rotschild.

Michael Cicurel, manager of Société Générale Bank, note Soros 2002 conviction, also chairman of Edmund Rothschild’s management and a member of the Rothschild & Cie Banque board.

I know I have gone a bit off track from the Wikimedia link, just wanted to point out George Soros has some interesting ties and a long laundry list. I am sure I have just scratched the surface.

I am not sure of the significance of the Wikipedia link, but one saying comes to mind. "History is written by the winners".

Here are some interesting reads on George Soros.

The Secret Financial Network Behind "Wizard" George Soros

The Rothschild Octopus

Oh the irony, to use so many wikipedia links in this thread.

He's quite a pusher behind the scenes isn't he!!!

I also uncovered that he's one of the money-laden pimps pulling the strings of huffington post . Naughty George may get caught with his hand in the cookie jar if times change drastically.

Interesting. I was wondering how this nobody Arianna Hufington and her propaganda machine seemingly came from nowhere and now is a Leftist powerhouse.

Soros has his hands in everything dirty and is one to be watched.

Of all of Soros businesses, I can partially forgive the Huffington Post.

One of the few media left who is somewhat open minded to report on medicine, especially non-conventional therapies with slowly rising scientific evidence to support them.

I have no problem with his left leaning and funding of left leaning sites. It sickens me that he has his hands in so many things though.

Found something else interesting about Société Générale Bank in France.

March 2009

$11 billion bailout from United States taxpayers On March 15, 2009, AIG disclosed that, among its counterparties, Société Générale was to date the largest recipient of both credit default swap (CDS) collateral postings ($4.1 bn) and CDS payments ($6.9 bn), paid in whole or part by U.S. taxpayers.

Soros the hidden hand?

Greece needs concessionary rates from Germany: Soros

Published on Sun, Apr 11, 2010 at 08:13

Billionaire financier George Soros said on Friday the Greek debt crisis was solvable if Germany agreed that any emerging lending would be made with concessionary interest rates. Current market rates were exaggerated by confusion about how a bailout might work, he told Reuters in an interview. "If Germany was willing to find a way ... of lending at concessional rates, market rates would come down, he said, on the sidelines of an economic conference.

April 11 (Bloomberg) --

Germany is prepared to give Greece loans at below-market interest rates, dropping its opposition to subsidies as European finance ministers meet to discuss the terms of a lifeline for the debt-stricken nation, a European government official said.
