George Soros Prepares For The Battle Ahead

Everything Is At Stake
The losses that progressives faced in 2016 have put much the progress made in this decade at risk. In America, the victory of Donald Trump and the successful retention of Congress has given Republicans control over the federal government for the time being. In Europe, the Brexit campaign on Investopedia has succeeded and right leaning conservative politicians are gaining momentum. The Left is going to have a battle ahead and George Soros plans to do everything he can to support them.

How Things Got To This Point
Like many others Soros wonders exactly how things got to the point that they are now. He believes the blame lies solely on the modern outlook of globalization. So many people feel that globalization has not benefited them and is actually causing harm to them. These voters according to Politico are doing everything they can to fight back and figures like Donald Trump give a voice to their grievances. For the Left to recover the Left is going t have to find a way to redistribute wealth into the hands of the working class.

What Soros Plans To Do
At the center of George Soros’ plan is to gather the Left together and find a way to stand up to Donald Trump. Trump has run on an agenda that explicitly fights against globalization. George Soros is a strong supporter of free trade and naturally he wants to do everything he can to fight against it. Unfortunately for Soros conservatives have firm control over the federal government of the United States. There is likely little that the Left can do in the short term to fight Donald Trump or anything on his agenda. However, long term plans might give hope.

The Hope Of Recovery
While things don’t seem very good for the Left Soros is hopeful that things can be turned around. He does believe that dark times are ahead of progressives as mentioned by nytimes.com. Trump and other right wing politicians of the West are going to have the ability to serious change the way things operate in politics. If the Left can endure they may have chance to take back power.

About George Soros

George Soros Moves Chess Pieces In Game Against Trump

The latest calculated move of 84-year-old Forbes billionaire hedge fund manager George Soros has paid off according to bloomberg.com. And you might be shocked to learn that this move puts him on the same side as the establishment Republicans in the 2016 presidential campaign. You heard that right, the ultra liberal financier of MoveOn.org, the organization that has openly backed presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, and the same man who has pledged $13 million to the Hillary Clinton campaign has aligned with Mitt Romney and the establishment GOP in an effort to take down Donald Trump.
Conservative news outlets have reported that George Soros, through back channels, has donated almost a half $1 million to Republican Governor John Kasich’s Presidential campaign effort, and it worked. Kasich won Ohio’s GOP Primary. The goal was to stop Donald Trump on Super Tuesday II from consuming the delegates offered by the state of Ohio. Ohio is a winner take all state with 66 Republican delegates up for grabs, unlike previous Republican primary states that issue delegates on a proportional basis or by county. Let’s do the math on why this is an important move.

Donald Trump is the front runner of the Republican candidates and he needs to acquire 1237 delegates in order to clinch the nomination before the Republican convention in Cleveland. It is unlikely that any other Republican candidate has a shot at securing that magic number of 1237. In the event that no candidate has the magic number before the convention, the convention turns into a brokered convention. At that point, all Republican presidential candidates that have earned delegates can team up and pool their delegates behind another candidate, effectively stopping Donald Trump from getting the nomination. And politicians like Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio, as well as other establishment Republicans who have formed a group called Anyone But Trump, have shown a willingness to dethrone Trump at the convention.

This is what makes Ohio import. By taking all of Ohio’s 66 delegates away from Trump, it makes it much more difficult for him to clinch the nomination before the convention. And I’m sure the liberal George Soros will delight in watching the Republicans tear their party apart. Soros has publicly stated on NY Books that Trump is a danger to the United States and has vowed to do everything in his power to stop him. That comes as welcome news to many who see Trump as a dangerous demagogue, or even a fascist.

You’ll root for George Soros in this battle even more when you learn about his past. He survived the Nazi occupation as a young Jewish boy in Hungary. His family fled to London as immigrants where he got a college degree and began to earn his wealth, an estimated $23 billion according to Forbes magazine. That’s a lot more than Trump. He’s also the founder of Open Society Foundations.

He gained notoriety as the world’s most famous hedge fund billionaire when he broke the Bank of England, shorting the British pound in the early 1990s to net $1 billion in profit. And now it seems he’s savvy not only in business, but in politics.
