It is fun to mock sites like Salon and Slate for their silly beats they cover. The pop culture beats are terrible wastes of resources. There is the Kardashian beat, the paparazzi beat, and the ever popular "Jon Stewart Style Derisive Comedy" beat. Could they redirect those resources to cover some other public figure? Tackling someone who has hands in multiple jars, lips at the ears of many world leaders, and money spent on everything legal and illegal one could politically imagine would be a great beat. Maybe it would earn a Pulitzer. What would a George Soros beat look like?
Is Soros taking down Greece? Could it be, might it be... yes, he is. George Soros goes after the Greeks. This is why you buy powerful governments, so you can then engage in big lending with foreign, sovereign borrowers. You keep the lending going and like a morphine drip, they get addicted. Then the threat of pulling it gets played. Either the foreign sovereign ponies up the money or they scream they can't and then bailouts happen, which really just end up in your pocket not the foreigners. Greeks got a new deal. Look at the fine print. Clause 7 makes default virtually impossible, clause 9 allows the advancement of neoliberalist globalization to the business activities of Greece, and clause 10 cites privatization of assets. Wonder who will be buying those assets for pennies on the dollar?
Soros is everywhere with his money pouring into foundations and charities that meddle in foreign nations. The Russians are onto this game, and may be taking steps to push old George and his minions out. Smart move to remove foreign elements unaligned with the ruling power or broader society. What right do they have there? They are located in Russia on the whim of Russia's security and bureacracy systems. Hungary is onto the NGO game as well, so if you are a do-gooder prog in college, stop learning Eastern European languages. Soros will re-assign you to Sub-Sahara Africa. You can teach them about female empowerment and gay rights. Good luck surviving. Take note any of you who dream of secession. You cannot just leave, but you must remove root and branch the posionous elements of progressive power.
It must be root and branch since Soros has his tentacles everywhere, especially in America's heartland. Who else is going to tell Americans that #BlackLivesMatter? Soros is backing an anti-death penalty drive in Nebraska. Tsk-tsk, the death penalty is barbaric and bad, so no way should a small state bring it back if it sees fit. Soros' worldview must prevail. I think allowing protestors to turn into rioters and telling police to stand down is barbaric and bad. Where is my foundation to fund #SafeCitiesMatter? When you allow democracy to set up shop, you allow money from anywhere into the process. I can dream of pan-secession and competing states, but I would look for a state that bans any NGO. A man like Soros would never rest with many more targets to change. Just look at all the work to be done in big, bad America by his Open Society foundation.
This might be too much to lay at the feet of one man. After all, the Ford Foundation started by Henry Ford eventually became a CIA front, channeling money to Harvard, non-profits, research institutes and everything to advance the Anglo communist agenda. This is why the Soros beat would be a great endeavor. What other entities or billionaire patrons are sending money into Soros' non-profits to push public opinion one way or the other? How many media members are complicit in suppressing this information? For an industry claiming to want to speak truth to power, the media finds a way to dodge old Georgie's dabbling whenever they can.
