George Soros Speaks Before the United States State Department
Secretary of State John Kerry introduced billionaire George Soros, at a State Department forum held on Tuesday at the George C. Marshall Center, according to the Washington Free Beacon. The State Department stressed that this is “an in-house event for department employees only, not a public or press event”. Apparently the wisdom to be conveyed by Mr. Soros is only fit for the ears of federal bureaucrats who understand the nuances and “greater good” of currency manipulation.
So now we are now living in an America where one is told that Dr. Condoleezza Rice is not worthy to speak at Rutgers University because of character issues and the Koch brothers are “un-American” but George Soros must be heard by the employees of our State Department. This is the same George Soros who wrote in his 2006 book The Age of Fallibility: The Consequences of the War on Terror that the “main obstacle to a stable and just world is the United States.”. This is the same George Soros who is known as the “Man Who Broke the Bank of England” in 1992 through currency speculation. He is also the same George Soros who was convicted of insider trading in France. His conviction was upheld by the French Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights in 2011. Soros has said his history of efforts to de stabilize foreign governments has been “fun”.
That State Department advises that Mr. Soros was invited to discuss his “views on a civil society”. It would be cynical to point out that Soros has donated millions to the pro Obama super PAC Priorities USA in 2012 and Kerry’s own presidential campaign in 2004. Since his speech is being held behind closed doors, we can only speculate that he will be expressing views that we know to be also held by many in the Obama administration, including Kerry, that America is the real problem in the world and the best way to effect change, is in the shadows. The “most transparent administration in history” rolls on.
