Elder Patriot – In 2016, we reported that George Soros’s net worth was estimated to be $25 Billion. He amassed that incredible wealth by running a hedge fund that has experienced a remarkable string of winning investments. How has he been so successful?
Soros has a history of using his wealth to fund government upheaval to benefit his global money management fund that makes or loses money based on its successful predictions of the changing values of national currencies.
When you control the outcome of major geopolitical events there is little guesswork to your investments.
Now comes this from John Solomon:
Liberal mega-donor George Soros made some big bets during the last U.S. presidential election. One was that Hillary Clinton would win the presidency. Another was that he could reshape Ukraine’s government to his liking, and that his business empire might find fertile ground in that former Soviet state.
So when Donald Trump’s improbable march to the White House picked up steam in the spring of 2016, Team Soros marched to the top of the State Department to protect some of those investments, according to newly released department memos providing a rare glimpse into the Democratic donor’s extraordinary access to the Obama administration.
“In the spring of 2016, Team Soros marched to the top of the State Department to protect some of those investments.”
Those newly released memos not only show an extraordinary level of access was granted to Soros, but that his agent had become so familiar with then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland that he had a pet nickname for her.
In one example, on May 25, 2016, Chris Canavan of the Soros Fund Management sent an email to the assistant secretary that read:
“Toria, here is my take on Russia’s foray into the bond markets this week, based on the market chatter I’ve been able to pick up.”
Canavan worked on the for-profit hedge fund that fueled the Soros multi-billion dollar empire. And, whose success made it possible for him to donate up to one-billion dollars each year.
Soros contributed $10.6 million to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and the super PACs supporting it making him one of the top 10 donors to Clinton’s 2016 election effort.
Madame Hillary was determined to do everything necessary to protect that revenue stream..
In return for Soros’ generosity, his minions like Chris Canavan, were able to establish cozy relationships with top State Department officials. In Canavan’s case, it was with Victoria Nuland who was responsible for Russia and Ukraine policy.
According to Solomon, in one instance, “when Ukraine’s general prosecutor sought to investigate one of the country’s nonprofits partially funded by Soros during 2016, the State Department pressured Ukrainian officials to drop the case.”
In another case, a Ukrainian nonprofit funded in part by Soros was a cheerleader for the discovery of documents in Ukraine during the 2016 election that showed then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort received millions in payments from Ukraine’s Russia-friendly political machine.
Soros was also prominently listed as a “participant” of the Clinton Global Initiative.
