    I am sure many people do not listen to nor like Glen Beck.
    But his expose on George Soros has many film clips of Soro's himself--in his own words --how he manipulated the sterling --broke the bank of England and made a personal profit of over one billion dollars.
    Soro's has been to the White house at least fout times. Left or right --are you ready for hyper-inflation, loss of savings and retirement plans --or do you put you head in the sand and pretend that something like this can never happen in the U.S.
    Your opinion ?:sad-little:

    When it comes to spin and control, Soros will never come close to Murdoch and company.

    bbsam,
    That is bit of a stretch. If you want to compare Murdoch to Ted Turner or any other Media Mogul --I could see your point .
    If you want the Liberal , Progressive spiel--watch Msnbc--if you want the conservative spiel watch Fox ---No problem with those comparisons.

    Soros a man that destroyed economies in Malaysia, Thailand, Georgia, and England ------behind the curtain caused inflation and chaos while he personally made huge profits.
    In his own words he has stated that he wants much more "foreign" influence on our governing bodies ---He firmly believes and states the the United States is the sole stumbling block preventing a " New World Order" Is that what you also would support ---a new world order ????
    Have not heard such radical statements from Fox, Msnbc, Cnn ---Turner nor Murdoch !!:wink2:

    I have been watching Glen Beck.

    And not to be one that will look at one side of the story, I did some research on Soros.

    The man is very scary.

    And for all you that feel Glen Beck is crying wolf. Have you been in a McDee's or BK recently?

    Would/Will Beck talk about Randy Scheuneman?

    What's John McCain's Excus....Response? Or Kristol and Company for that matter?

    Is Soros in truth actually playing both political sides? Would Beck dare ask that of his red state flag waving friends and what might we even learn about Beck, Hannity and Limbaugh et al if such a close look were to take place? Am I just waving a baited hook or do I know something and I'm telling my FoxNews hating friends here that there is a really good steak to be found on the Net if they dare look?

    Just enticing enough either way to piss you off ain't it!
    :wink2:

    Funny how Glen will only "follow the money" so far and then seems to stop! Hmmmmm!

    So are you guys who are misdirecting the conversation saying that Soros is scum or is he an ok guy just looking out for best interests? Just curious. My opinion, you can never trust one person but I'll take my chances with Beck before Soros

    I don't see it as an either/or situation. Why take a chance with either one? Soros is a rich guy who gives money to causes he supports, which more and more seems to be the driving force behind our whole political system (money and the various rich people who control it). If Beck actually believes even half the things he says he's delusional, but maybe he doesn't and he's just selling what people are buying and making hay while the sun shines. I don't have much use for either one of them.

    actually nothing wrong at your comment here. I was kinda interested in the thread at the start but it gradually started to drift to finger pointing in every direction but where it shouldve been headed (about Soros). Kinda the way D and R politicians do when misdirecting; "oh yeah, well look how bad this guy is". I understand critiquing Beck becasue he was the one exposing Soros, but I can see this thing going downhill fast.

    Beck reported what George Soros has said and done repeatedly. Beck’s statements are fully backed up with solid direct evidence. I wish anyone who disagrees with him would point out where he slipped up.

    Tourist,
    We all need to stop and just look behind the curtain. As the flames, smoke and thunder blast, some of us see one image and the other part of us see another. Yet, behind the curtain, the one pulling the levers that cast the image and fire the flames, smoke and noise, is always the same little man if you will and he's the one who always benefits no matter which image from election cycle to election cycle is either the more popular or the more reviled!

    Soros plays bothsides of the street just as the Koch Bros. (Kochtopus) do the same. While paying out money to keep the Cato Institute in bidness and the Tea Party in place to butter Diesel's biscuits, they also pay in money to the Demorcat Leadership Council DLC and even direct to democrat party candidates. Google Koch Brothers & DLC and then follow the powe.....money.

    I have always thought that Soros is a scumbag. He has made his fortune off the unfortunate, and I don't care what your party affiliation is. Its as simple as that and I'm happy he lost in the last election. There has got to be a special place in Hell for people like him.

    Scratch,

    Guys like that never lose regardless of an electoral outcome! He makes money no matter who wins and we're the only losers.

    Hmmm, todays Zogby Poll had a question loosely quoted

    "What words do you think of when you hear the name George Soros?"

    Jones fILE A GRIEVE! Staff Member

    I would agree with that. For the extremely wealthy election outcomes don't really make much difference in their lives. I mean, do you think Paris Hilton really cares one way or the other? When they do get involved in politics it's more at the level of the sports fan who's rooting for the home team. If they lose, oh well. There's always next season.

    I know he makes money no matter who wins, I probably should have worded my post a little better. I am just happy the side he spent a lot of money on lost. I have been aware of who he is and what he wants for a long time. I just get a some personal satisfaction when his ideals get shoved back a little.

    Why Does Mainstream Media Leave George Soros Alone?


    Wisconsin’s battle over the union label continues to resonate nationwide. Lefties complain about conservative funders David and Charles Koch in often obscene fashion, making juvenile plays on their last name and prank calls like troublesome children. The so-called mainstream media are heavily invested in that strategy, calling the Koch brothers some of the “biggest bankrollers” for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

    It’s a theme that almost defies reason. The Kochs openly support things they believe in – especially free markets and limited government. To media types, those beliefs are suspect or even audacious. To the left, they’re criminal or anti-American. Both groups claim to question everything.

    Everything, that is, except who funds the left. When that gets mentioned, there is either complete silence or cries of conspiracy at the mere mention of the name George Soros. Yet Soros has given billions around the globe for decades to push his own beliefs. His impact on liberal politics here in the U.S. is unparalleled.

    Wherever left-wing organizations gather, you can find either him or a pile of his cash. His dollars reach from pro-abortion and pro-drug groups to fringe media outlets and Democratic campaigns.

    In just one day last week, while traditional media were going after the Kochs, the Soros Empire swept across the land pushing a hard-left agenda.

    Three separate story lines from Thursday Feb. 24, 2011, showed Soros in all his glory. In the first, liberal activists pushed for a Supreme Court ethics code. The second talked of “Tea-Party-like revolts” against spending cuts. The last involved the nationwide union protest in support of the Wisconsin strikers.

    Every one of those stories was pushed, influenced and organized by Soros-funded groups. He might have never even lifted a finger. He didn’t have to. He's No. 35 on Forbes’ list of global billionaires with $14 billion, so he just opened his wallet.
