    Time to 'Drain the Swamp': Will Soros Find Himself Behind Bars?

    American billionaire George Soros has long been known for sponsoring "color revolutions" across the world. However, it looks as if a strikingly similar pattern is now taking shape in the US. Speaking to RT, songwriter Vanessa Feltner, author of an anti-Soros petition, underscored that it's time to stop Soros and "drain the swamp."

    Over 10,000 people signed an online petition calling upon US President Donald Trump to ban billionaire George Soros from the United States for inciting color revolutions and carrying out social engineering experiments.

    "President Trump, We the people are asking you to ban George Soros from our country. We ask you to ban both George Soros and all his family members from doing any and all business in our country from contributing to politicians or their foundations in order to influence and manipulate our corrupt politicians," the petition, drawn up by pianist and songwriter Vanessa Feltner, says.

    Speaking to RT, Feltner noted that Soros has been repeatedly spotted inflaming riots in Europe and other parts of the world, to complicate matters further now his controversial activities pose a threat to the United States.

    While the US mainstream media continues to dub anti-Trump protests as "spontaneous," it has turned out that more than 50 groups behind the marches received funding from Soros.

    One of these groups is MoveOn.org, which plays a significant role in organizing the protests.

    Hacked emails of Hillary Clinton's campaign chair John Podesta published by WikiLeaks indicated that the organization has long been receiving support from the billionaire.

    After the results of the US presidential election were announced, MoveOn.org released a statement calling for mass protests.

    "Americans to Come Together in Hundreds Peaceful Gatherings of Solidarity, Resistance, and Resolve Following Election Results," the statement read as quoted by Breitbart News.

    A series of protests over the 2016 election results, female rights, Trump's executive order on immigration and other "progressive" matters has taken place across the US since November 2016.  

    "There's kind of a tradition of paid protesters. That's not a job per say, but special interest groups have funds, they are somewhat quite organized. They will pay people to protest in support of an issue. They provide attorneys, they provide places for them to stay, they rent houses, they provide medics for them," David Carter, professor of the School of Criminal Justice, told Radio Sputnik on November 12, 2016.

    Speaking to Sputnik in early February geopolitical analyst, author and editor in chief of News Junkie Post Gilbert Mercier stressed that pseudo-spontaneous protests have Soros' fingerprints all over them.

    "George Soros and his Open Society Foundations, which is a network of more than 100 foundations, and still has offices in countless countries including one in Afghanistan, has his finger prints all over the pseudo spontaneous anti-Trump protests, not only in the United States, but worldwide," Mercier said.

    Soros doesn't conceal his negative attitude toward Trump.

    "I have described him as an imposter, a con man and would-be dictator," Soros told Bloomberg at the World Economic Forum on January 19, 2017.

    It is no secret that Soros' Open Society Foundation and its numerous affiliates were involved in numerous "color revolutions" and social uprising in the post-Soviet space, Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and Asia.

    "Serbia, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine, Lebanon, and the 'Arab Spring' in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Syria — the technology has been well tested," Radio Sputnik contributor Svetlana Kalmikova said in her recent op-ed.

    According to Kalmikova, a strikingly similar pattern is currently taking shape in the US.

    Needless to say, the recent smear campaign launched by the US mainstream media against US President Donald Trump falls within the trend.

    In her petition on Change.org Feltner cites George Soros' book The Age of Fallibility in which the billionaire argues that "the main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States." According to Feltner, Soros' and other globalists are seeking to destroy the country.

    She told RT that once the petition collects 10,000 signatures she will redirect it to the US President.

    "I'll hand Donald Trump the petition, and then will draw up another one on the White House web site. We are determined to stop Soros and get rid of politicians who received money from him. We will drain the swamp and put them behind bars," Feltner emphasized.

      Financial crimes alone should be enough to arrest Soros. But his espionage and violent revolutions are worthy of asset confiscation and imprisonment. to serve him up as an example of unlawful behavior that will not be tolerated.

      Soros is insured by dirt. The kind that sticks and destroys reputation and wealth.

      Trump doesn't fear losing the Presidency but he deeply fears losing the Trump brand.

      Soros knows Trump won't go after him because he knows Trump doesn't want all his dirty NY property speculation crimes exposed.

      Soros has forgotten about Israel though. Israel however never forgets any Nazi collaborator. What the Donald cannot do Mossad can, and now will, in exchange for no future American impediments to Israeli settlements of course.

      Israel plays the long game like few other nations. Soros has lived so long only because Israel viewed him as a future asset to be played for maximum gain.

      The gargantuan hubris of Soros has blinded him to the Sword of Damocles which has always been hanging over his head.

      I can hear a whooshing noise.

      The problem is, whenever there is a Soros--a recurring phenomenon in the USA and Europe--few think to apply the common-sense approach for which there exists a time-honoured and scrupulously crafted tool for remedying the situation: file formal charges which itemize and providing supporting evidence in defence of the criminal complaint filed.

      Petitions do not work, protests against unlawful manipulation of government policy do not work, nor should they. The instrument of the law is the only tool that works.

      Why those who put togethe rpetitions regardless of how well-supported that petition is, do not file formal criminal complaints with enforcement authorities is quite simple: the petition people normally have no familitarity with dealing with drime and do not want to deal with the oftentimes grisly details.

      Here are the grisly details respecting the list of illegal activities vis-a-vis the US Internal Revenue Service in which Mr. Soros may be involved which are enforceable. It is ccontingent on the petitioner to file charges and to provide evidence in support of those charges with the IRS, Just quickly scanning this there appears superficially to be many opportunities for the achievement of justice for the public and the public policy an dpublic good through the enforcement of these laws.


      You are leaving behind Goody Twoshoes Land when you go after a thug to take him down. You have to be absolutely right which is not exactly the tantamount and salient characteristic of reformers these days irrespective of their political affiliation. There is no such thing as a "truthyism." Just because you think something should be right does not mean it will ever be EXCEPT when you are in compliance with the letter of the law in the promotion of your allegations.

      Here is another venue for filing criminal charges: violation of lobbying laws:


      and here, which is a bit hilarious as Soros is doing IMO exactly & overtly what the Left accuses the Conservatives of doing:


      And another which I favour as I have been involved with these sorts of investigations in the past in those ancient days when former Wehrmacht immigrants to the USA used racketeering methods to influence awards of manufacturing contracts in Detroit:


      I think the above applies very well to Soros-funded anti-coal activities as his organisation has been buying up coal mining assets following on to coal mines closed as a result of Soros-funded protests.

      You have to file the complaint, though. The IRS, the Justice Department, the SEC and the FBI will do NOTHING until you file a complaint. You can turn in petitions with a billion signatures and they will still look at you and ask, quite rightly, "So what do you want us to do about it?" The law is evidence and proof-driven, not perception- or "I think they are doing this"-driven. Also you have to prove intent with malice of forethought.

      No one said it was going to be easy. It is not.

      support, Using the legal apparatus against the likes of Soros is doomed to failure before you even start, especially in the USA.

      The legal system is designed to financially benefit lawyers and to provide rich individuals and corporations with absolute and impenetrable immunity to both criticism and culpability for crimes.

      The legal system is corrupt. The legal system is designed to be ineffective against a class of criminals. The legal system is owned by the likes of Soros. The legal system has no credibility whatsoever, none, zero.

      If legal proceedings were commenced against Soros just the intentionally slow and inexorable length of time those proceedings would take would ensure Soros died of old age with a smile on his face.

      The law is a moribund farce in most countries but especially the USA. The solution to Soros isn't easy, but many teams of people are highly trained and experienced at expediting it. It's high time such a team was dispatched to ensure such an outcome. The world would benefit, not just the USA.

      There is no other real world option.

      Dar..., all excellent points and difficult to disagree with. I might counter with the notion that without Soros, there would not have been the much-needed Conservative revolution in the USA which was and is badly needed. Without dimbulbs like Soros, no one would have thought to have called his bluff through asking "Well, if you care so much about the working class to fund Occupy Wall Street, you could have funded the startup of 20 factories which would pay over 15 bucks an hour with what you spent on financing riots and unemployable permanently basement-dwelling Mama's boy non-students to poop in the streets."

      Also, guys like Soros never work for themselves as they are always at the beck and call of equally and perhaps more nefarious political people of influence; it is better to know where all those illegal string-pullers are at, which is why it is taking so long to shut him down. Federal enforcers always play real-world Pokemon as they want to catch 'em all. Soros has done a great job of gathering all the world's Davos-level villains under one roof all of whom beg for money from him on bended knee, so perhaps old Georg has been on the enforcement side all along.

      For all the money he has spent his impact has been negligible put against formidable world destroyers like Hugo Stinnes or Mario Ponzi or Beatrice & Sidney Webb or Alois Drexler or Streseman. He is a vacation Bible school teacher-level rookie by contrast.

      The hard solutions that require sweat and probity are the true easy way. The easy, intuitively "right" way always is a mistake.

      Lastly if you lower yourself to Soros's level you are no better than he is. You always turn into what you hate or love eventually. Choose wisely or prepare to fall into the Pit of Ten Thousand Tarantulas.

      support, The 'rights' and 'wrongs' of politics are for future historians to endlessly debate. In much the same way as theologians once killed time by pondering how many angels could stand on the head of a pin.

      In the field of deeds there is only 'action' and 'inaction'; do something, or do nothing.

      Legal proceedings and petitions against an enemy effectively fall into the 'do nothing' category, because no action would result from them. The enemy would remain unscathed, undeterred and highly active.

      No-one with any sense likes open war, but recognising when you're in one is essential for survival. In open wartime enemy assets are eliminated if they cannot be subverted.

      Defining who all the enemies are is a constant challenge. Identifying their command and control, and destroying it, is a primary goal. It's true Soros is not a General but neither does he have a solitary Chief of Staff. Action against that structure requires finesse but action against Soros does not.

      Dar..., the last thing that needs to happen is for someone to light him up which would then make a martyr out of him. And then there would be fifty thousand statues of him and fundraising rock concerts in his name to save the platypus or some such thing for the next twenty years. :>)

      Please, though, do not miss the point of my long post. NO ONE has filed charges against him AT ALL. It takes twenty minutes to fill out the online form or to turn in a signed affadavit of complaint. No one has to figure anything out about how to do that either as the instructions are right there with the appropriate forms.

      support, His ego has probably already pre-planned some dreadful sequence of events to commemorate his departure, however it occurs.

      His followers though were bought, very few in his train are true believers in the wisdom of Soros; most are just vultures waiting to scavenge his estate. His deeds will leave scars but he will be forgotten very swiftly, Bono will have to be the platypus Messiah.

      Your point on filing charges is valid for those in that jurisdiction who believe such a course would bear fruit. Why do you suppose none have so far?

      What perplexes me about Soros is that he emerged from a highly polarised world where people who openly acted against the interests of states had short lives.

      Granted many nations he's damaged have been living in the restrictive molasses of a world dominated by the USA, but Russia has emerged from hibernation and China is out of its' shell.

      The world is rapidly re-polarising, hands which were tied are now free. Why didn't he see it coming and slip quietly into secure oblivion?

      Dar..., failing to engage problems with simple solutions seems to be symptomatic of this era and in fact of the American workplace for Millennials at the moment. I call it variously "digitarditis" or "brain freeze" but it all derives from an ingrained tendency borne of over-reliance on the approval of others combined with sorting out how what they act out will look on social media. (I am serious about that, people now think it is more important to wait on someone else to take risks rather than lose their followings on social media). There is now no such thing as cowardice or bravery or even character in the scheme of things, only thinking out how one looks on camera. Everyone now seems to act according to the "values" of Gloria Swanson's character in Sunset Boulevard lol

      The other bit is that most who are playing the Soros side of the fence feel perfectly safe when destroying other people's worlds by remote control as they do not have to face the consequences of what they do to others. If someone asked me what was the most destructive invention of the 20th century was, I would not say the H-bomb or nerve gas but the American style suburb. Burbs enable people to trash cities and whole nations from the comfort of one's living room via smartphone with blithe abandon with the assurance that those they destroy will not in turn destroy them. Burboids have no mercy. They do not need it themselves as they feel perfectly safe all the time.

      And of course, so does Soros the Hut.

      President Trump should sue George Soros for $10 billion for defamation by calling Trump a con man. Then the justice dept should indict Soros to face the Grand Jury for Sedition, for trying to bring the US Govt down. That should be enough to put this evil man in jail for good.

      support, Your analysis of the behaviour social media users holds true for many it seems. The herd mentality is strongest amongst those who feel most vulnerable, and social order is maintained in most societies by keeping their herds nervous.

      Contemporary western suburbs do to some extent fulfil the same function as the upper middle class salons and town and country houses of previous centuries. The bourgeois plotters in them however remain the same. Rich elites, with too much time on their hands and too much unfettered access to the tools of subversion.

      Some of the bored rich will make extravagant toys or play with rockets. The psychopathic ones will murder hundreds of thousands, or millions of people before they are stopped. I don't see this pattern ending.

      You are very correct about the population of America and Western Europe feeling immune to the consequences of their social destabilisation, economic subversion and warmongering in other people's countries. So far they have been immune. Those days are gone now. Pigeons are coming home to roost in flocks.

      Those of us who have had to experience war ravaged towns and cities know just how fast that could be replicated in New York, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, London or anywhere. People are capable of living a normal life one day and blowing their neighbour's brains out the next. That's just human nature. Civility and stability are paper thin constructs, easily torn apart but very hard to reconstruct.

      Scum like Soros know that all too well and unleash it for their own amusement and profit. Better for a state to expend a little time and effort on removing such individuals than deal with the consequences of not doing so.

      I've enjoyed our conversation but cannot reply further for some time. Work takes me off yet again to the world of no internet access.
