Catholics need to know George Soros because he is a serious enemy of the Church. He has financed some of the most egregious "Catholic" front groups in the U.S., groups like Catholics for a Free Choice and Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good. The man's history is one of betrayal and he is a master at profiting from other people's misery.
Executive Intelligence Report (EIR) gives us a brief sketch of what Soros has been up to in more recent times: (My comments are in red.)
Following the crisis of the European Exchange Rate Mechanism of September 1992, when the Bank of England was forced to abandon efforts to stabilize the pound sterling, a little-known financial figure emerged from the shadows to boast that he had personally made over $1 billion in speculation against the British pound.” Great man, eh? Profitting from bad times for the multitudes. That's how he's made his billions.
That speculator was none other than George Soros, who once helped the Nazis expropriate the property of his wealthy fellow Jews. Isn't that an interesting piece of information! He betrayed his own, why would he not betray anyone else? Is there a man alive who truly believes that George Soros has the best interests of the United States and the American people at heart? Nobody with half a brain. This is the man who now pulls Obama’s strings… who whispers behind-the-scenes economic advice into Obama’s ear as he engineers the most dangerous slide toward economic chaos since the Great Depression. He poured beaucoup bucks into Obama's campaign and expects a return on his investment.
So what assurances do we have that the Soros-Obama cabal is not working toward a period of ruinous hyperinflation in the United States… a period of hyperinflation designed to make Soros the wealthiest man on Earth and Obama the most powerful? None at all. What assurances do we have that Soros and Obama are not purposely designing economic policies that could quickly turn the United States into just another Third World country, smothered in foreign debt? In view of Obama's policies, all of which have been devastating to the U.S. economy, it's a good bet. No one can be that stupid! So if he's not stupid, it stands to reason that he's doing it on purpose.
In Soros we have a man with a history of satisfying his greed by betting against the economic interests of his own country and his own people, while in Obama we have a man who has spent almost his entire adult life learning at the knee of America-haters such as the Communist Frank Marshall Davis; radical activist Saul Alinsky; the anti-Semitic guru of black liberation theology, Rev. Jeremiah Wright; the unrepentant 1960s terrorists William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, and numerous other Marxist college professors, America-haters, and assorted homegrown radicals.
There is not a single free-market capitalist in Obama’s entire political lineage. Surprise!
Individually, Obama and Soros are dangerous men. But together… given Soros’s wealth, now estimated at over $11 billion, and Obama’s skills as a “snake oil” salesman of the first order… they have the potential to serve as the catalysts for worldwide economic calamity. Greece may just be the beginning.
Read the complete article here and keep your eyes on the relationshiop between Soros and Obama. Soros is no stranger to the White House where he's visited a number of times. Michele Malkin noted two visits, but the visitor logs released by the administration are miniscule. Who knows how many times Soros has been there pulling strings with his money greasing the skids? Here's what Malkin writes:
Soros visited Lipton [Obama's advisor for international economic affairs] on February 25, just a few days after he made international headlines for statements at Columbia University about the global financial collapse, and again on March 25, the day he was quoted around the world gloating about “having a very good crisis.”
Soros makes no bones about wanting the devaluation of the dollar, the birth of the new world order, with China in the lead pulling us along. That's what he says in this ten minute interview if you can stand to listen to it. We are well on the way to becoming a banana republic.
