Reuters: Soros Money Is Behind Occupy Wall Street Protests


George Soros has been supporting liberal causes for years. In 2008 he was an early supporter of our first TelePrompter president. In return(?) he somehow managed to reap millions in a US-Brazil oil deal supported by Obama.

It only took the democrat-media complex three weeks to report that liberal financier George Soros was behind the Occupy Wall Street protests. Impressive.
Reuters reported:

There has been much speculation over who is financing the disparate protest, which has spread to cities across America and lasted nearly four weeks. One name that keeps coming up is investor George Soros, who in September debuted in the top 10 list of wealthiest Americans. Conservative critics contend the movement is a Trojan horse for a secret Soros agenda.

Soros and the protesters deny any connection. But Reuters did find indirect financial links between Soros and Adbusters, an anti-capitalist group in Canada which started the protests with an inventive marketing campaign aimed at sparking an Arab Spring type uprising against Wall Street. Moreover, Soros and the protesters share some ideological ground.

“I can understand their sentiment,” Soros told reporters last week at the United Nations about the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations, which are expected to spur solidarity marches globally on Saturday.

Pressed further for his views on the movement and the protesters, Soros refused to be drawn in. But conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh summed up the speculation when he told his listeners last week, “George Soros money is behind this.”

Soros, 81, is No. 7 on the Forbes 400 list with a fortune of $22 billion, which has ballooned in recent years as he deftly responded to financial market turmoil. He has pledged to give away all his wealth, half of it while he earns it and the rest when he dies…

…According to disclosure documents from 2007-2009, Soros’ Open Society gave grants of $3.5 million to the Tides Center, a San Francisco-based group that acts almost like a clearing house for other donors, directing their contributions to liberal non-profit groups. Among others the Tides Center has partnered with are the Ford Foundation and the Gates Foundation.

Disclosure documents also show Tides, which declined comment, gave Adbusters grants of $185,000 from 2001-2010, including nearly $26,000 between 2007-2009.

Aides to Soros say any connection is tenuous and that Soros has never heard of Adbusters. Soros himself declined comment.

The Vancouver-based group, which publishes a magazine and runs such campaigns as “Digital Detox Week” and “Buy Nothing Day,” says it wants to “change the way corporations wield power” and its goal is “to topple existing power structures.

Of course, there’s more to the story than what Reuters reported. The Soros-funded Working Families Party, a member of the Hexagon of Progress, is running a jobs ad on Craig’s list for activists to help fight Wall Street.

Once again… the Working Families Party shares the same address as the SEIU and ACORN and was listed as an affiliate of ACORN.

    Obama’s punks at work and it’s another way of getting him out of the White House, on his own demise.

  • Atlanta Media Guy

    Slowly but surely the MSM will start to report these facts about Soros. I feel as the Democratic Party continues to feel nervous about the defecating protesters and the message that none of them seem to get, the MSM will start hammering the “Occupy” movement.

    I’m amazed the media has not made a peep about the astroturf campaign the Occupy protesters have taken. Most of these kids are getting paid by Tides, Working Families, SEIU, ACORN.. whoops sorry they have folded right? ha ha ha ha Not really ACORN is still alive and doing well with our tax dollars since the democrats have changed the names of several organizations so that they can steal from the taxpayers as well.

    I heard a few years ago, that Sen. John Kerry’s wife is a big funder of the TIDES foundation.

    Have you noticed how many new immigrants are starting to protest and try to change our government and laws?

    We need to return to the Ellis Island idea again, before we are overrun with people intent to destroy us from within.

    One has to wonder if this is why Democrats keep wanting more and more come here, just to tear down the USA!

    Yeah. Soros is funneling money through a Canadian anti-semetic organization . . . so it was OBVIOUS it was Soros from the start — like I said : )

    IF his little goons make the mistake of attacking the government, i.e., advocating for it’s overthrow, then guess what? It is sedition, not freedom of speech BECAUSE the actors are actually agents of a foreign entity (since they are being paid by the Canadian organization), and are guilty of treason. This is the law.

    Just sayin.

    But if they’re just going to bitch and moan about businesses and CEOs etc. (criticism of Soros being markedly absent), then they can. And all it costs is OUR TAX DOLLARS, and meanwhile they get paid a nice salary.

    All this hoopla about Occupy, the latest Soros-funded and managed trick, REALLY distracts from how close the researchers and legal forces are to uncovering the truth about little Steve-Barry-Barack Little/Obama.

    The judiciary who are blocking this information are traitors to this country.

    Also Obama is working for Soros to collapse the US economy because he will benefit from everyone’s misery.

    Hey–just like the old days for Georgie . . .

  • Jay

    A pretty generalized article about Soros. Need some more proof. Also, it doesn’t even seem like these protesters are very well funded. They had money before the protest began or they wouldn’t be living in Soho.

    The people that are really upset about Wall Street don’t even have any gas to get to NY.

    George Soros now has a superhighway to Change – ‘Socialist Change.’ We are already beginning to see the largest growth in government in the history of America. Hell-bent on destroying the American dollar and installing a global currency, Soros has got his bought-and-paid-for White House stooge now installing his socialist agenda.

    ______________________________

    A president with a class-warfare mindset has joined with the likes of some predictable people and organizations that typically benefit from economic envy. They have set the stage for a growing uprising of frustrated people who now occupy Wall Street and other cities in America. This strange collection of multicolored hair, anti-everything signs and demands for a basic redistribution of the nation’s wealth is gaining more momentum, thanks at least in some measure to a sucker press. This is the same media that for so long refused to recognized another movement of frustrated Americans, the tea party, until many months and countless rallies into it.

    Right from the playbook

  • Patty

    Soros doesn’t care who answer the call, as long as it looks like lots and lots of Americans, gathering to promote his agenda in some manner or form.

    He believes the sheep are idiots and Soros will play on that to the bitter end. And laugh will doing it.
    He is on LOWLIFE.

    All Obama has to do to create MILLIONS of job openings in this country is to mandate the use of e-verify and enforce our existing immigration laws. One of the primary reasons that jobs are so scarce is they have been stolen by illegal immigrants who have no legal right to be here.

    We got billionaires looting taxpayers money and freeloaders marching on Wall Street. We got worst of both world.

    Everything happening just as Glenn Beck predicted more than six months ago, using their own words and videos exposing this plan.

    Now, what are WE going to do when the marxist Obama and the communists in the democrat party attempt to bypass the elections and seize power? You all KNOW this is going to happen, because they know that they are going to be exterminated and lose all power for at least thirty years because of what they have done since getting Obama in power.

    Jesse Jackson Jr, urging Obama to use “EXTRA” constitutional POWER! Code for UNconstitutional power!

    When it comes, WHAT is our plan?? Someone??

  • Stuart

    Jim: My only disagreement with your post is the statement that Soros has supported liberal causes for years.
    Actually the only cause that Soros has championed is Soros. From Nazi occupied Hungary to now he has been, if nothing else, consistent in that .

    I found this comment on the link I will post below. It addresses how we need to respond to any more unconstitutional actions by Obama and the democrats, they need to be charged with treason and put in Leavenworth!

    “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the UNited States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegance to the same;….”

    5 U.S.C. 3333 requires members of Congress to sign an affadavit that they have taken the oath of office required by 5 U.S.C. 3331 and have not or will not violate that oath of office during their tenure of office as defined by 5 U.S.C. 7311 which explicitly makes it a federal criminal offense (and a violation of oath of office) for anyone employed by the United States Government (including members of Congress) to “advocate the overthrow of our constitutional form of government”. 18 U.S.C. 1918 provides penalties for violation of oath of office described in 5 U.S.C. 7311 which include (1) removal from office and ; (2) confinement or a fine.

    It’s time someone read Mr Jackson and Mr Obama the riot act (literally!) before they end up sitting around the cell block at Leavenworth in striped pyjamas discussing “extra-constitutional” acts to their hearts content.

    Good post. Does it make sense to anyone that the Iranians would employ a sused car salesman from Texas to recruit drug cartel members for 100,000? They make more than that selling dope to the losers in LA? Yeah this is a Wag the Dog story for sure.

    I bet there are more black ops going on in Mexico by ATF and the FBI than Holder wants anyone to know about.

    there is no conspiracy going on here except the paranoid mass hallucination of the fascist christian right who are a tiny majority in this country. most of us couldn’t care less what the mythical jesus said, don’t buy into the fantasy that our president is an illegal alien socialist muslim, and fully support raising taxes to pay for the crony capitalism, unfunded wars, and disastrous medicare prescription drug plan all compliments of george bush. after all he doubled the national debt; reagan tripled the national debt. these are facts, but when these uber-conservative bigots get riled up, all facts fly right out the window. good luck in 2016. ps – the occupy movement is real and gaining momentum, and is not just the product of the fox noise (aka faux news) misinformation and propaganda machine; more than 50% of americans share their concerns – do you guys think that mr. sores has paid off each of those 175,000,000 americans? gimme a break.
