George Soros Transfers $18 Billion to His Open Society Foundation

Leaked documents from George Soros’s Open Society Foundation (OSF), last year, revealed just how heavily the billionaire hedge fund manager is invested in manipulating and undermining the rule of law in Western democracies, including the United States. High on his list of targets is the integrity of U.S. immigration policy.

At age 87, Soros may feel he doesn’t have much time left to destroy Western society and has decided to go all-in, as in $18 billion on the table dedicated to promoting his dystopian world view. It is a vision he laid out in the The Capitalist Threat, an essay he penned for the February 1997 edition of The Atlantic. In the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet bloc, Soros came to view the lack of a counter-veiling force to Western dominance as a threat.

Soros’s vision of an open society has nothing to do with creating greater governmental and societal transparency. It is about preventing any nation or ideological viewpoint from gaining what he believes to be undue dominance in the world.

“The Cold War was an extremely stable arrangement. Two power blocs, representing opposing concepts of social organization, were struggling for supremacy, but they had to respect each other’s vital interests, because each side was capable of destroying the other in an all-out war. This put a firm limit on the extent of the conflict; all local conflicts were, in turn, contained by the larger conflict. This extremely stable world order has come to an end as the result of the internal disintegration of one superpower. No new world order has taken its place. We have entered a period of disorder,” he wrote in The Atlantic.

The disintegration of one superpower must therefore be counterbalanced by the disintegration of the other. Soros goes on to elaborate on how that goal might be achieved. “Societies derive their cohesion from shared values. These values are rooted in culture, religion, history, and tradition,” he notes. But he is not exactly extolling those virtues. Rather he is identifying them as a target in his effort to rein in the dominance of the capitalist West in the post-Cold War world.

All $18 billion won’t be dedicated to undermining immigration policy, but as unchecked immigration is a critical component to achieving his goals, it is a safe bet that the panoply of organizations he has created and funded to attack the integrity of our immigration process will never lack for cash.

“There is no foundation in the world, including the Ford Foundation, that has had more impact around the world than the Open Society Foundations in the last two decades,” Darren Walker, president of the Ford Foundation which has partnered with Soros in his efforts on immigration, told the New York Times. To be clear, “impact around the world” does not necessarily mean for the better. With an additional $18 billion in its coffers OSF is clearly aiming for even more impact.

    ODUMBO, Merkel, Soros and the rest of those One World Order freaks should stay the hell out of America and americas BUISNESS leave Americans alone, stop stirring up all the hate !! We in America have a constitution that ODUMBO has so many times violated !! Soros hates America and our constitution and creates chaos to cause a civil !!! From my understanding ODUMBO has made some sort of agreement with the UN to take over our military and the US if this does happen, but I would imagine that this will not settle well with all the law abiding gun owners who will defend this country against all invaders no matter who !!!

    It’s ironic that Soros speaks of open societies but he sees the Soviet bloc and the west as equals in providing a “stable environment”. This ignores the fact that stability was achieved on the Soviet side by occupying the countries of Eastern Europe and brutally crushing any dissent and/or uprisings such as in Hungary in 1956 or Poland in the late 70s. Yes, we had troops in Europe but when France demanded we withdraw, we did. Western Europe continually voted for pro US governments in free elections, something the Soviets never permitted. Like Hillary’s criticism of British voters as uninformed fools for voting to leave the European Union, Soros thinks only the elites know what’s best.

    It’s no coincidence that Obama named Angela Merkel as his favorite world leader. Both share the concept that turning your country over to foreigners is required. When Merkel said that other countries had to “take their share” of those she told to come to Germany. the Polish president replied that “One {German} invasion was enough”. Perhaps Merkel should stop lecturing countries that her country, along with the Soviets, all but destroyed in WW2.

    At least the Eastern European countries, including a recent election in Austria, are outright rejecting Soros. But a lot of Americans don’t even know who he is. Because the mainstream media ignores him and the massive influence he has. And anyone who thinks that amount of money doesn’t influence people is in denial.
