You don’t need to be a conspiracy theorist. In Soros’ own words:
"When I sold sterling short in 1992, the Bank of England was on the other side of my transactions, and I was in effect taking money out of the pockets of British taxpayers. But if I had tried to take social consequences into account, it would have thrown off my risk-reward calculation, and my profits would have been reduced. "
Now, Soros financed Obama’s election. (He still finances the internet sites that vilify conservatives and praise Obama.) Suddenly, when, to everyone’s surprise, Obama began to beat Clinton, commodities were pushed to astronomical heights by speculators. Then, when everybody thought it was time to buy oil, corn, etc, they were hugely shorted, and crashed, further siphoning off the assets of investors and the businesses who depend on commodities. Then staggering numbers of short sales blasted the stock market, particularly the stock of banks and other financial institutions. Then the government steps in with the Geithner plan to subsidize and guarantee the sale of unimaginable amounts of “toxic assets” owned by banks and other financial institutions, whose value had been driven down massively. And now the taxpayers of the U.S. are going to pay for the unprecedented fortunes that will be made when, under the Geithner Plan, the Fed will grant low-interest, non-recourse loans to buy, at huge discount, the assets which no one will now buy because they’re just too huge for all but a few, and those few have not yet been offered a deal good enough to suit them. A good, stiff dose of inflation will re-inflate their value, and, again, drive down the value of the assets of ordinary people.
You might not be such a wild-eyed conspiracy theorist after all, KathleenElsie. You just might not be.
And Soros’ man is just started in running the nation.
