Soros comfortable “playing god”

“It is sort of a disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.”


~ George Soros, June 3, 1993

Fox News host Glenn Beck has been doing a masterful job over the past few weeks in his series exposing the man that gave America President Barack Obama, the radical socialist billionaire George Soros.

George Soros (born 1930), like many European Jews of his generation, had his life personally and indelibly affected by the horrors of Hitler, the Nazis and the Holocaust. Soros was 13 years old in March 1944 when Nazi Germany occupied Hungary. Soros worked for the Jewish Council, which had been established during the Nazi occupation of Hungary to forcibly carry out Nazi and Hungarian government anti-Jewish measures.

After World War II, Soros would further observe firsthand how post-war joblessness, hunger, fear, uncertainty lead to riots and anarchy, leading to the establishment of communist dictatorships throughout Eastern Europe in the 1950s and ’60s.

Soros immigrated to England in 1947 and, as an impoverished student, attended the Fabian Socialist London School of Economics where he received a Bachelor of Science in Philosophy in 1952. After working as a trader in New York in the ’50s and ’60s, in 1970 Soros founded Soros Fund Management with Jim Rogers and for the next 30 years made billions in the hedge fund market. In 2000, the Quantum Group of Funds was reorganized, and the Quantum Endowment Fund was established. The fund has assets of approximately $27 billion.

On Sept. 16, 1992, Black Wednesday, Soros’ Quantum fund sold short more than 10 billion worth of British pounds, profiting from the Bank of England’s reluctance to raise its interest rates to levels comparable to those of other European Exchange Rate Mechanism countries. Finally, the Bank withdrew the currency from the European Exchange Rate Mechanism, devaluing the pound sterling, earning Soros an estimated $1.1 billion. He was dubbed “the man who broke the Bank of England.” Other nations that Soros purposely profited from by devaluing their currency include: Russia, Thailand, Malaysia and currently America.
