Allison Buchtien

How do I get some of this money. I'd gladly protest for a fee!

Jack Cross

Thats not funny. Allison, because cities are being burned and lives are being lost,

Mr kelleman makes a valid point, while Democrat run cities have let this go on and one political party has been silent until this week.

Allison Buchtien

Protesting is not the same as rioting. No one is being paid by billionaires to protest. Such BS!

Craig Mason

I promise not to burn or loot, but some cash would come in handy.

jimmy winston

LOL Same here!

Charles Douglas

I think the author is right on with this, ...because RACIST Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and their Campaigns have been bailing rioters and lawbreakers out of jail left and right! Where is all this cash coming from? Yes, they are organizing the looters, rioters, those who are beating up seniors, and killing kids, but as I have said many times before, all this choas and upheaval is for nothing! Donald Trump will not only win in November ...he will win by a LANDSLIDE! Just mark it down somewhere! I hope people will mark it down! It will a glorious day to celebrate on November 3rd, and after Trump wins,.. the whole world will know THERE IS A GOD IN AMERICA! David said these same words almost to GOLAITH, before he killed him, He told him, "This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands....then the whole world will know THERE IS A GOD IN ISRAEL!" If it is good enough for David,...it is good enough for me. If you study bible prophecy you will understand why Trump is making deals bringing peace to Israel now when no others could.

The idea Charlie H. Keleman is talking about, came from The Free Beacon. If you like reading that type of stories, they have plenty for you to read. Charlie H. Keleman forgot to include George Soros, the far rights dog whistle.

Carlos Ponce

George Soros is no "dog whistle". Interesting he funded the campaigns of DAs who are now refusing to file against the looters, arsonists, police attackers destroying America's cities. I wonder when they catch the LASD shooter if one of his will refuse to file charges or leave it up to Biden's staff to bail him out.

Jim Forsythe

Like a moth to a flame, the far right shows up.

A moth can not help themselves, and neither can the far right.

Carlos Ponce

Like a pig to its sty, the Left shows up.

Gary Miller

Jim> Someone is funding the professional rioters. Many of them are proven to be from out of state, They are using bus and air travel from one riot to another. If it isn't Soros funding them then who? Soros funded AG candidates who are letting hardened criminals back on our streets. It's easy to think funding rioters is another of his destructive habits. When proof is uncovered there are liberals. in the media or this forum, who will invent excuses for him.

Ted Gillis

Oh yes, dear ole George Soros. He has so much money that he just has to throw it all away by chartering planes full of ninjas to fly to cities that he has no interest in, so he can see them burn. That’s how millionaires invest their money these days.

What a crock!

Gary Miller

TED> SOROS became a Billionair by creating confusion. He expects to re earn everything he spends on creating trouble. The Biden campaign funds some of the riots by bailing arsonists and looters out of jail. Many of the arrested are out of state professional rioters with someone providing room,board & transportation.

Jim Forsythe

In 1947, Soros moved to London to study economics. He got a job in banking, and in 1969 created a hedge fund. But his enormous fortune — and reputation — were built with a single financial investment move in 1992.

That year, Soros “shorted” the British pound, meaning he bet that the pound’s value would plummet.

Soros, for his part, made over one billion pounds in profit, which, counting for inflation, is roughly equal to 2,591,000,000 US Dollars in today’s money.

Dan Freeman

George Soros survived the Nazi occupation of Hungary which ended when he was 15. He obtained his bachelor’s, master’s, and Doctor of Philosophy from the London School of Economics. He applied Karl Popper’s General Theory of Reflexivity to capital markets to understand asset bubbles and the market value of securities. He earned $ 1 billion by short selling the pound sterling in 1992. He started two hedge funds in the 1960s and 1970s. They generated the majority of his current net worth of over $8 billion. His philanthropy contributed significantly to the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe.

His funding of liberal causes in conjunction with his effectiveness at undermining the Russian Empire has led to a variety of conspiracy theories spun by the American right and Putin’s GRU. This same GRU received dozens of indictments as a result of the Mueller investigation of possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Putin’s Russia. Conspiracy theories targeting Soros, who is of Jewish descent, have often been described as anti-Semitic.

Carlos Ponce

On 60 Minutes George Soros admitted to aiding the NAZIs. His attitude was akin to someone had to do it. What he did was catalog items the NAZIs confiscated from Jews.

From 60 Minutes:

Steve Kroft: “My understanding is that you went … went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.”

George Soros: “Yes, that’s right. Yes.”

Kroft: “I mean, that’s — that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?”

Soros: “Not, not at all. Not at all. Maybe as a child you don’t … you don’t see the connection. But it was — it created no — no problem at all.”

Kroft: “No feeling of guilt?”

Soros: “No.”

Jim Forsythe

When you get your news from Alex Jones, be prepared for half of the story.

Alex Jones claims there is even proof - that Mr Soros admitted to Nazi collaboration in a 1998 interview on “60 Minutes.”

This is, at best, a gross distortion of an interview in which the financier reflected on how he survived as a Jewish teenager in Nazi-occupied Hungary.

“I was 14 years old,” he told Steve Kroft. “It was a tremendous evil, a very personal experience of evil.”

But it was an experience for which he felt no guilt, he added.

Early in the occupation, Mr Soros worked as a courier for the local Jewish council, which Nazis set up in many occupied countries - using Jews to identify and keep tabs on other Jews.

“The members of the Jewish councils faced impossible moral dilemmas,” the US Holocaust Memorial Museum wrote. "They were often unaware that the Nazis' goal was the death of all Jews, or even believed that working with the regime might benefit their communities."

One day, Mr Soros was ordered to deliver messages to several Jewish lawyers in Budapest, according to the biography, Mr Soros: The Life and Times of a Messianic Billionaire. The letters instructed the lawyers to report to a rabbinical school, but Mr Soros realized they would be imprisoned upon arrival. He warned them of their danger, according to the book, and quit his job with the council after carrying out the errand.

“You went and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews,” the host said.

“Yes,” Mr Soros replied.

“Was it difficult?”

“Not at all,” Mr Soros said. “Maybe as a child you don't, you don't see the connection.”

“No feeling of guilt?”

“No. . . . Whether I was there or not, I was only a spectator. The property was being taken away. So I had no role in taking away that property.”

In fact, Kaufman wrote in the biography, Mr Soros would spend years in therapy “dealing with the impact that his temporary, necessary, and pragmatic denial of Jewishness at the age of fourteen had had on the development of his personality.”

Carlos Ponce

The 60 Minutes quote came from Snopes, Jim.

Dan Freeman

You have reported a half truth in pursuit of an anti-Semitic lie. Moreover the quote is not on Snopes as you have said. Why must you soil yourself with this evil?

Carlos Ponce

"anti-Semitic lie" Now, THAT'S a lie!

Carlos Ponce

"Moreover the quote is not on Snopes" Yes it is, that's where I copied it. And Snopes got it from CBS. All you have to do Dan is do a web search. Did you BOTHER?????

Bailey Jones

All lies matter -

Kroft: “You're a Hungarian Jew ...”

Soros: “Mm-hmm.”

Kroft: "... who escaped the Holocaust ..."

Soros: “Mm-hmm.”

Kroft: "... by posing as a Christian."

Soros: “Right.”

Kroft: “And you watched lots of people get shipped off to the death camps.”

Soros: “Right. I was 14 years old. And I would say that that's when my character was made.”

KROFT: In what way?

SOROS: That one should think ahead. One should understand and -- and anticipate events and when -- when one is threatened. It was a tremendous threat of evil. I mean, it was a -- a very personal experience of evil.

KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.

SOROS: Yes. Yes.

KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.

SOROS: Yes. That's right. Yes.

Kroft: “I mean, that's -- that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?”

Soros: “Not, not at all. Not at all. Maybe as a child you don't ... you don't see the connection. But it was -- it created no -- no problem at all.”

Kroft: “No feeling of guilt?”

Soros: “No.”

Kroft: “For example, that, 'I'm Jewish, and here I am, watching these people go. I could just as easily be these, I should be there.' None of that?”

Soros: “Well, of course, ... I could be on the other side or I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away. But there was no sense that I shouldn't be there, because that was -- well, actually, in a funny way, it's just like in the markets -- that is I weren't there -- of course, I wasn't doing it, but somebody else would - would -- would be taking it away anyhow. And it was the -- whether I was there or not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. So the -- I had no role in taking away that property. So I had no sense of guilt.”

Carlos Ponce

So Jim and Bailey confirm what I posted.

Bailey Jones

Confirmed that you're a liar, yes. The lie you're propagating is that Soros went merrily about confiscating the property of the Jews, He did not. His father enlisted the help of a friend who claimed Soros as his Christian godson, thus saving him from the Nazis. The godfather was who did the confiscation, under direction of the Nazis. Soros was just a kid.

Not that any of this is relevant to the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" BS conspiracy theory that you and the author of this letter are peddling...

Jim Forsythe

The far rights dog whistle, strikes again.

Say George Soros, and they come.

Carlos Ponce

Whether or not he helped Nazis merrily or not is beyond the point. He did it.

Carlos Ponce

Jim and Bailey CONFIRMED Soros aided the NAZIS, no lie.

Charles Douglas

Ladies and Gentlemen, I just want to give my sincere thanks to the Billionaire who is the President of America, for all that he has done, and for staying on coarse! This man is the most productive, hard-working and prolific President in American History! This man has produced and survived with the who WORLD ALMOST, and the powers associated with the world... working overtime to bring him down, but to no avail! This man TRUMP DIESEL...has done more in three years than OBAMA and all other Presidents have done in eight years! He is the most feared leader in the world, and I LIKE THAT! Why is it IRAN won't go stop an AMERICAN ship on the High Seas, and kidnap our American sailors now,... LIKE they did when BIDEN & OBAMA was giving away the store..for eight years in DC? The man has even convinced the BIG TEN FOOTBALL League to play ball this year, when they were holding out because of pressure from the LEFT. The Democrats still has the PAC-TEN ...HOLDING OUT! They should hold out! They are lousy anyway. USC had the Ardacity to recruit somebody in my family, but I shut that down in a hurry! Why would any young man play for USC, when they could play for LSU, MICHIGAN, TEXAS A&M or Notre Dame? Trump Diesel is fixing to distribute a PANDERMIC VACCINE next month and Ole, RACIST Joe Biden wants to give his plan now, on how to distribute It! This guy got nerve or what? Everything Trump accomplishes, BIDEN & OBAMA fly up like two buzzards sitting on an EAST TEXAS fence ...waiting on a half-dead animal to die, so they can swoop-in and devour It! ( Take Credit ). So Sad! A truly sad thing to watch, but JOE is known for Plagiarizing, and false claiming other people's work! Can I tell yall what? Can I tell Y'all WHAT? Let's do a TOAST with diet coke to the NUMBER One Leader, this WORLD have seen in my lifetime, LETS RAISE OUR BOTTLES, OR CANS TO .......Mr. D.L. TRUMP! Thank yall!

[beam][crying][crying][crying][crying] This is emotional for me, because this is my MAIN-MAN ...accomplishing all This![beam]

Bailey Jones

Dupes of Putin's Anti-American agitprop are, by definition, too ignorant to know that they are being played. Hence the term "useful idiots". This letter and the accompanying accolades from the peanut gallery represent just one more small victory for the former KGB Lieutenant Colonel. Disinformation, division, distrust - these are how American democracy dies.

Charles Douglas

You got to be talking about the man who on national TV GOT caught sending VLAD ..a message stating " I will be more flexible after my next election!" " Tell Vlad that!" ....BARACK OBAMA ( talking about his 2012 election.) So I would suggest that if Putin has a fool or an IDIOT abiding or residing in the United States, it is definitely not DONALD TRUMP or his supporters! We were not the ones who turned our backs on The Ukraine when Russia and Putin invaded them and Annexed part of their land, right? Obama and Biden acted like a submissive dog acts when an Alpha- Male Dog comes around flexing his authority. It was not TRUMP who SCOLDED Mit Romney for saying RUSSIA was our number one geo-political enemy, and boldly exclaimed that the EIGHTIES WERE calling and wanted their foreign policies back, WAS IT? IT was not Trump who cut our military to the bone to finace Liberal giveaway agendas craved by the LEFT, was it? It was not TRUMP who started paying RUSSIA billions of dollars to trasport American space travellers, into outer space, thereby MILLING our own space program ....was it? Was that Obama? Who then is Putin's IDOIT? The Submissive dogs always put their tails between their legs, scoots...down whining in submission when the ALPHA DOG appears! That is what Biden, and Obama did when IRAN, CHINA AND RUSSIA CONFRONTED THEM. That is why Obama, & Biden hauled all that cash over to IRAN to support Terrorism in the middle of the night! They were scared then and they are scared now! Who are the idiots again? "Hardee PONCE & Miller LLP" will not invite you to our party if you keep making up stuff![smile]

Dan Freeman

Here is what actually appears on Snopes:

Claim

During World War II, George Soros was a member of the SS (a Nazi paramilitary organization) or a Nazi collaborator who helped confiscate property from Jews.

Rating

False

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/george-soros-ss-nazi-germany/

Carlos Ponce

For something that Dan posts was NOT on Snopes, Dan discovers ON Snopes.

Again Snopes let their partisanship get in the way of telling the truth.

"During World War II, George Soros was a member of the SS (a Nazi paramilitary organization)" False. This one they got right.

"a Nazi collaborator who helped confiscate property from Jews."

What does the 60 Minutes Transcript say????

Kroft: “My understanding is that you went … went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.”

Soros: “Yes, that’s right. Yes.”

That shows their "False" rating should have been "Mixed".

No need to provide a link. Dan Freeman provided it.[whistling]

Kroft: “My understanding is that you went … went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.”

Soros: “Yes, that’s right. Yes.”

AGAIN!

Kroft: “My understanding is that you went … went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.”

Soros: “Yes, that’s right. Yes.”

AGAIN!

Kroft: “My understanding is that you went … went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.”

Soros: “Yes, that’s right. Yes.”
