Taking into account the current controversy swirling around the prevalence of fake news in the mediasphere, it has become increasingly difficult to distinguish fact from fiction. The fake news syndrome, as it turns out, is primarily a mainstay of the Left, which is constantly being caught propagating outright falsehood — Trump removing the bust of MLK from the Oval Office is only a single but representative instance of a widespread offensive to distort and falsify. Trying to ascertain truth has become a mission rivalling the quest for the Holy Grail.
When it comes to the activities of George Soros, however, much is known. Soros is a man of the deep Left whose campaign to destabilize the U.S. is powerful and pervasive. Should he be allowed to operate freely, he will continue to wreak enormous damage, aided by a large constituency composed in part and at various removes of the individuals and groups he has subsidized. There is no doubt about the extent of his interference in domestic affairs. And there is no doubt that something needs to be done about it, certainly before his likeminded son Alex inherits his empire and persists in advancing the father’s regime-change and conflict-creation agenda.
Soros believes, as he writes in The Age of Fallibility: Democracy, Human Rights and Open Society, that “sovereignty is an anachronistic concept,” a conviction that explains his push for the principle of open borders that also characterizes the European Union. Although the Schengen Agreement has proven disastrous for Europe, as terrorists and “fakefugees” (Selwyn Duke’s phrase) travel freely across its territory, Soros wants the same disintegrative effect to develop in the U.S. When he goes on to state that “the main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States,” his intention to sow discord and weaken the nation he detests is amply clear.
This is why he is so virulently antagonistic to Donald Trump, who wants to make America great again and disassemble Obama’s regulatory nightmare. (There is little question that Soros was behind the violent disruptions of Trump’s political rallies.) Soros is all for a multilateral world, an international legal system that rules over individual states and institutions, and an end to the free market, which means, Becket Adams explains in The Blaze, “that transactions between private parties would be governed by state intervention, including restrictive regulations, taxes, tariffs and enforced monopolies.”
Bill O’Reilly has exposed Soros’ vast and clandestine network tasked with subverting the U.S., pointing out that the flow of Soros money, in the range of hundreds of millions of dollars, has corrupted the Democratic Party, elements in the Republican Party, millennial and celebrity culture, and the media almost in toto. He is, as Matthew Vadum shows, “the ‘Number One Funder’ of the domestic terrorism that is part and parcel of the Left.”
Channeling funds through his Open Society Foundations, Soros has endowed movements and organizations like the Tides Foundation, Center for American Progress, Democracy Alliance, Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, MoveOn, Media Matters, and ACORN, purveyors of lies and instigators of social mayhem.
As Asra Nomani reports in The New York Times, “Soros has funded, or has close relationships with, at least 56 of the [Women’s March on Washington’s] partners,” anarchically protesting the election of Donald Trump. These include the notorious Planned Parenthood, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, and the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Soros-hunter Vadum has drawn attention to the billionaire’s latest project, Humanity Ventures, which seeks to promote and profit from illegal immigration into the U.S. The Daily Caller reveals that the partly Soros-funded Alliance for Global Justice backed the rioters who violently shut down the recent Milo Yiannopoulos event at UC Berkeley.
These outfits all bear highfalutin-sounding names, but they resemble late-model highway patrol “ghost cars” ready to pounce on unsuspecting motorists. Soros is also implicated, via funding of immigrant rights and lobbying groups, in blocking Trump’s executive order halting visas for 90 days for immigrants from seven terror-sponsoring Muslim nations.
In the international arena, we know that Soros has been convicted of insider trading by a French court. There are rumors that he is the subject of an arrest warrant issued by Russia and a Red Notice by Interpol and the European Union. But are they merely rumors? The so-called “fact-checking” site Snopes declares these to be a hoax, but Snopes — a mom-and-pop outfit run by a divorced couple without investigative credentials — and its shady hireling Kim Lacapria, are highly suspect authorities.
Global Research, itself an anti-American site, has revealed the range of Soros’ machinations, using his fortune “to topple governments in Serbia, Georgia, Ukraine, and Kyrgyzstan. He ‘broke’ the British pound in 1992 costing the taxpayer billions for personal profit, was accused of wreaking havoc on the Malaysian ringgit, and was called an ‘economic war criminal’ in Thailand.” Some countries have decided they have had enough of Soros’ operations. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban is moving to extrude Soros and “the forces symbolized by him” from the nation. A mass movement in Macedonia seeks to do the same.
He is also involved in destabilizing my own country, partnering with Canada — its Islamophiliac Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his tired old retread of an Immigration Minister John McCallum — to foster massive Muslim immigration, regrettably without significant pushback from what has been called a “cold socialist netherworld.”
The Russian connection does not seem entirely speculative. I have been in communication with the Russian Embassy in Ottawa but it has neither confirmed nor denied its intentions vis à vis Soros. Its reluctance to comment may (or may not) indicate that something is afoot. Being of Russian parentage (original surname: Solovechik), I believe I understand the mindset. The Russians play their cards very close to the zhilet.
So far as I can see, there are only two ways of dealing with the malignance that is George Soros.
- Given the extent of Soros’ activities in funding violence and causing social upheaval, he is liable, as Vadum suggests, to the “criminal and civil provisions of the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), state racketeering statutes, and class-action lawsuits.” These provisions “could be used to end Soros’s long-running scheme to interfere with the civil rights of Americans and fundamentally transform the country.” Additionally, we may ask whether Trump will declare George Soros a national security threat, a move, according to some sources, that Trump may be contemplating. Such is the domestic-based option.
- Given his fiscal intrigues and interference in the affairs of foreign countries, Soros may be liable under certain circumstances to extradition. It is unclear whether the case could be transferred to Interpol, but should Trump, for example, sign an extradition treaty with Russia as part of a policy to seek warmer relations with Putin under the auspices of pursuing mutual interests, Soros could conceivably find himself in Moscow to answer charges as — once again — a threat to national security. Though it has its downsides, it is a strategy to be considered. Gadfly columnist Erik Rush argues that Soros “has used his billions to institutionalize sedition on a variety of fronts” and “could easily be stripped of his citizenship on any number of grounds and unceremoniously deposited back on Hungarian soil if our leaders found sufficient vertebral fortitude to initiate the requisite proceedings.” I am not sure about the “easily” or the feasibility of the legal process Rush envisages. There is speculation that Trump will use Obama’s 2014 Executive Order (13660), titled “Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Ukraine,” to declare Soros a threat to national security. Such is the foreign-based option.
Under existing conditions, extradition is a long shot. Failing which, we may find applicable the principle known as Aut Dedere Aut Judicare (“Extradite or Prosecute”), a proceeding designed to deprive criminals of a safe haven which has recently been put on the agenda of the International Law Commission.
According to the Oxford Bibliographies treating of international law, the obligation to extradite or prosecute “has gradually been incorporated in numerous bilateral and multilateral treaties, which deal with different types of crimes, including ordinary offenses with an international nexus,” among other derelictions of justice. (Italics mine.) This is, admittedly, still a controversial issue, but the principle requires that a choice be made between the two alternatives. Prosecution would then become the other face of extradition.
Soros is the most dangerous man in America and an acknowledged global menace, a man with sufficient influence, as Press for Truth observes, to render him “above and beyond the state.” Indeed, the man who reminisces fondly of his youth in Nazi-occupied Hungary when he participated in the looting of Jewish homes without subsequent remorse is, to put it bluntly, quintessentially evil. More recently, the irony of Soros denouncing Trump at the Davos World Economic Forum as an impostor, a con man and a would-be dictator is palpable. Trump of course is none of these. These epithets apply more precisely to Soros himself (and, no less specifically, to his protégé Barack Obama.)
Should Soros be prosecuted under the RICO Act and/or declared a national security threat, or should he be extradited to face justice in another country, one could sing, with The Shadows and The Kingston Trio, adjusting for the times, all my Soros, soon forgotten.
