WATCH: The 60 Minutes Interview George Soros Tried To Bury

 

Long lost footage of George Soros appearing on 60 Minutes in 1998. GS has allegedly gone to some lengths to suppress this interview, and it’s not hard to see why.

He does not come off well.

  • Sit back and enjoy the media-vaunted “philanthropist” inadvertently reveal his textbook psychopathy to an incredulous interviewer (who does his best to cover for him).
  • Listen to George tell us it’s all about making money and the social consequences of his actions just don’t bother him.
  • Watch George admit he feels no shame for selling out his fellow Jews to the Nazis and pocketing their gold.
  • Marvel at his blank incomprehension when asked if he is tortured by guilt for what he did. Guilt? Moi? Nah, he says, with what may pass for a smile to those familiar with his facial expressions, it’s just like business really – if George wasn’t doing it someone else would be.

Still think George is funding Avaaz and all those other NGOs because he just cares so much about humanity to the depths of his big soft heart?

This is old old news about Soros. So where did this article come from? What inspired it?
Jewish republican, Eric Early, is running against jewish Democrat, Adam Schiff for a congressional position in California. Eric Early is a Trump lover, while Adam Schiff is a Trump hater. Trump, of course, is a big time zionist, meaning he supports the right wing fascists controlling Israel’s regime. It’s an apartheid regime known for being protected by both the U.S. and British regimes. Therefore Israel bombs their neighbor-nations, and confine millions of non zionists in an open-air prison, while regularly slaughtering them en-masse. The zionists are the nazis.
But Eric Early, a Trump-loving zionist, is running against Adam Schiff, a Trump-hating zionist. And they’re having a fake moment of argument on Twitter, about the imperialist billionaire George Soros having been a nazi or not over 20 years ago.

In modern/real news, the U.S. regime is backing the student protests in Nigeria, which of course means that Nigeria, the nation with the largest population in Africa, is likely in the middle of an imperialist-backed-inspired coup. With a population over six times that of Syria, at over 200 million people, the horrors of a coup attempt by the imperialists is unimaginable.

In the 60 Minutes piece Soros’ clearly states he does not believe in God, yet in an NYT article* his son contradicts this by saying his father believes in Judaism. Did Soros have a change of heart or is this simply expedient? What’s more, Soros characterizes himself in the pice as not being very Left-leaning at all, and even remarks that the Left has moved further Left leaving him as a member of an ideological “nonclub”. Isn’t he self-disclosing, in effect, that for whatever motives people attribute to his philanthropy — typically liberal — that they are wrong because he has, instead, an entirely different set of reasons for the social agenda he supports?

Take, as an example, his stated reason for supporting Open Societies. In the article, he says Jews — despite having their own State since 1948 — don’t have a place in any society in which there exists nationalism. That’s a rather curious thing to say in a day-and-age when very few countries in the West are racially/culturally homogenous. It’s not as if Western democracies were running their countries like Japan, where almost no immigration/naturalization is allowed and the racial makeup (and thus potential for race-based nationalism remains static). To the contrary, we have a long, pluralistic history in the United States, which would make it ill-suited for the kind of militant isolationism Soros appears to fear when he refers to “nationalists”. And yet he seems to be motivated by this idea that whatever plurality and tolerance we have achieved, it is not nearly enough. Where has he been for the past 75 years? To further break down barriers (borders) suggests that we remain mired in some pre-war isolationist or at the very least are in imminent danger of returning to such a state. In the EU, on the other hand, doesn’t it give Soros pause to observe that the end result of his aggressive effort to promote migration has been, instead, a reflexive rise in nationalism? For a financier at Soros’ level there is something incredibly out of sync about the fact that he remains oblivious to the fact that his aims to push for still more “openness” — as if to suggest there is some shortage of goodwill/diversity within some of the oldest Democracies in the world — has created exactly its opposite: the desire to close down and shut out. Openness? By what stretch of his imagination has his efforts produced any? (If anything, it’s set us on a path backward for which the evidence is the increasingly bizarre preoccupation the national media has with all things racist, nationalist and xenophobic about the very same Country that liberated holocaust survivors from German Nazi concentration camps!)

As someone who witnessed firsthand what the Nazis attempted to do through the mechanisms of propaganda and repression, the fact that Soros has lived long enough to witness the resurgence of the Extreme Right should tell him that something isn’t working about “manufacturing” the pace of social change via mass, unchecked migration. Americans and many European countries were perfectly willing to allow for immigration and equal application of their respective laws to citizens both old and new — until they were forced to contend with a human surge in the name of being “open” . The fact that the public sentiment so predictably fatigued in the face of such rapid change — not wrong change, per se, but unassimilated change — illustrates that what Soros has accomplished is, in fact, antithetical to the goal of creating open minds, let alone open borders. We should all shudder to think just how closed, if not fascist, the future may become now that he has decided to leave ~$18 billion of his money to his Open Society Foundations after he passes away to ensure that the work carries on! What work was there to do in this vein when we already have migration-enriched Democracies in the very countries where many of his OSF’s intended to effect change? Of all the pro-Democracy priorities in the world, why not use those billions to encourage better conditions in less developed countries in Africa and Central/South America where autocracy, corruption and tribalism truly does wreak havoc on social and economic stability?

In summary, there something very “off” about the fact that Soros philanthropy efforts all but regard the West as “broken” when it is the West and America, more specifically, that fought the Nazis and won! To suggest that we aren’t open enough, while leaving the crime and corruption unchecked in countries that could really use a functioning, Democratic government with proper checks and balances in place to ensure their own citizens’ success, is utterly and completely suspect. One has all the money in the world to spend on one’s idea of Utopia — and one chooses not to help impoverished nations that have been roped into imbalanced trade arrangements and IMF/World Bank servitude, and instead seeks to change the social order in countries that are already diverse, Democratic, economically productive and cosmopolitan?

For those who think that Soros is just another wealthy philanthropist, among many, marching to his own drummer, I would urge his actions to be judged on results vs. stated intent. Soros’ made his fortune exploiting the reality that markets will sometimes shift even when the underlying fundamentals do not support the direction in which they head. If he has the kind of wherewithal to see these disparate forces at play in the market, then surely he is not a bumbling actor who has just happened upon the misfortune of being “opposed” by right-wingers. He is creating the extreme Right with every blow of his Billion Dollar hammer. If he were a true philanthropist, he would support Democracy where it is weakest — not where it has managed to create, however imperfectly, relatively stable social and economic systems. The stated intent of Soros’ effort is one thing, but to continue to fund those efforts when it has clearly produced more, not fewer, fascist sympathizers, should tell you that this philanthropist has either lost his marbles or he was never in the “game” for the lofty pro-Democracy goals he claims to support. If it walks like a duck…

The Eye of Soros, like the Eye of Sauron, gazes at the world to identify opportunities according to its own sense of propriety. Greater public awareness of the Soros actions in funding social unrest like BLM in the US would help continue to unmask the malefactor. Look at the parties who benefited from his interests, and how they rationalized those interactions. Few will miss Soros when he is gone, and who will be the next one?

He strikes me as being very empty, despite having a belly full of good food and wine (or whatever). He’s clearly self centered. His vision, like other power trippers without principles, is all about how he can play ‘riches for the strongest’ – a game in which there ‘has to be’ losers – and win. His vision is the betterment of himself. The problem with that is that, as a self-modified person who now embraces the neoconservative/ neoliberal order (judging by what he does), His idea of what betters him is crap. Rejecting God and then proceeding to replace him can’t benefit you. He says, later in the show, that’s he’s not God. But earlier in the show he says, in so many words, that he is. The thing is, When you’re God, you can make the rules. You can lie, lie, lie and call it truthtelling. Can’t you?

During the Nazi occupation of Hungary Soros’ wealthy Jewish father bribed a government official to ‘adopt’ George as his Christian god son. George then went around posing as a Christian helping this same government official confiscate property from the Hungarian Jews who he watched being rounded up and sent to the death camps. “Was this a problem for you?” asks the interviewer. “Did you feel any guilt about doing this?” the interviewer probes. “No, not at all” replies George. He rationalizes his utter lack of empathy for his fellow Jews who died in the holocaust by explaining “If we didn’t take their property someone else would have”. Another revealing quote from this interview: ” I cannot and do not look at the social consequences of what I do”. He excuses his criminal and ‘above the law’ behavior by rationalizing “If I didn’t do it someone else would do it”. Utterly lacking morality, integrity or social conscience whatsoever.

“I cannot and do not look at the social consequences of what I do”
Well he can and he should, but thats not how business works. Hes rational in what he says. The system determines how the game is played and an individual has no control over it. Thats probably what he learned when he was 14. Once the rules are set by the system you play by those rule or you lose. Its the system that needs to change. hes right in what he said.
Personally I think hes deep state and theres a lot hes not admitting to, but that another story.

It’s reasonable to assume a non-psychopathic 14-year old would feel guilt or remorse, if not at the time then in later life. The excuse “if I didn’t do it someone else would” is an almost textbook antisocial indicator.

Having listened to the interview – or parts of it – I am not sure what all the excitement is about.
Soros is a fully paid-up capitalist, sometimes to the point of being red in tooth and claw.
Why are you surprised that a successful is like this?
Soros is not the problem; capitalism is.
He is just doing what it takes to be successful under such an all-consuming system.

Which is why the US is a regulated capitalist society . Which is why the clintons friend and benefactor, soros, has his company outside the US. This gives him a huge benefit over his regulated American competitors. A benefit that he bought and paid for by buying the votes of democrat congressmen and senators. Note the Haitian government the clintons introduced him to was so corrupt, even by Haitian standards that it was overthrown. Then note the Ukranian government he advised was overthrown because it was a puppet of Putin.

He didn’t say anything, technically, that was all that damning. Folks who wanted him to break out into tears, fall on his needs and beg God, who he rejects (fully) for forgiveness won’t see that. At the same time, You didn’t find him to be empty? Really, He’s happy to be a godless player in the game of ‘riches for the strongest’, acting like God. He likes the attention and whatever power that playing gets, clearly. Progressives who have been paying attention know that his words about wanting to help, as a human being, are empty. If he wanted to do that, he wouldn’t be a willing, important cog in the evil machinery of corporatocracy. Someone should do the forensics and compile the known instances where his influence in color revolutions was there.

Capitalism is an economic system not a moralistic one. It’s the only one that allows one to lift themselves from poverty by their own volition. It’s the only one compatible with liberty. Soros and his like and their greed are most definitely the problem. It’s the same stupid argument that guns kill people. No the F they don’t! evil people do!

Could it also be that George operates from the Dutch Antilles as a way to avoid income tax(along with lots of other “Philanthropists”) which, if paid in the USA would go towards reducing the $18Trillion National debt(which shows no sign of even slowing down, let alone being paid down)
I imagine that the Billions of dollars ‘allegedly’ given away by George is just like Zuckerberg ,’giving’ his 54 Billion away(whilst retaining total control over all the funds, and their income).
The myth of American philanthropy is just that, a myth, which costs the US Treasury multi billions in avoided tax year after year after year…….And everyone want’s to blame the poor(welfare recipients) for the deficit.

What has morality got to do with capitalism?
Unless being perceived as immoral or amoral affects the bottom line, maybe?
Like that 14-year old boy he was who collected items from Jews being deported to concentration camps, Soros is simply doing what ever is necessary to survive in a highly competitive capitalist fascist world.
When questioned about his acts of philanthropy, Soros made the point that he is one person when at work in a capitalist environment and another person when he is acting as a social – as opposed to an economic – individual.
That is how this weird capitalist world we all live in works.
At work, people can be absolute tyrants but outside of work, someone altogether different.
This kind of dichotomy is what confronts everyone – not just Soros – in a world ruled by greed.
Some “go with the flow” while others choose an alternative – arguably much less lucrative – way of life.
The only thing that is different about Soros is the scale of what he is involved in.
He deals in billions while most of the rest of us probably deal only in hundreds or thousands, at most.

“What has morality got to do with capitalism?” A lot, actually. Morality, i.e. know what is right from wrong obviously has a lot to do with capitalism: do you walk out of a store without paying for what you took? Or the Christian work ethic. Or, paying your taxes–or avoiding paying taxes by basing your business in the Antilles. I think you’re reframing the debate to suit your own position.

Now you are bringing religion into it – ‘Christian work ethic’ – which not only is irrelevant to capitalism but simply places the “business” aspects of religion formally within the capitalist framework.
If you want to talk about a ‘Christian work ethic’, then look no further to what Soros was doing as a 14-year old pseudo-Christian. Does that fit it in with your concept of ‘Christian work ethic’? Remember, he was not the only “good” Christian “processing” the valuables of Jews being sent off to death camps. No morality there.
Going right back to Adam Smith – though he was described as being a Professor of Moral Philosophy – he never mentioned morality in the invisible workings of the capitalist system. Markets do not work around any concept of morality. They simply reflect a balance between competing individual interests of suppliers and consumers.
Soros obviously learned this true lesson about capitalism at a very early age.
The truth is that he is just one of the best in the world when it comes to exploiting the capitalist system.
I suppose we all ought to be grateful that he chooses voluntarily to apply some of his wealth to good causes.
If we don’t like him doing that then we should all be clamouring to our elected representatives to toughen up the tax laws across the capitalist world in order to ensure that people like him do not benefit unequally from them.
Welcome to the real world – the real capitalist world.

Hello John, he says he was a Christian ( his view ) but who was it he perceived as his God ? Islam parallels Christianity almost to the letter as the teachings of a madman copied from memories of the original koran . The Muslims ( Islam, if you choose ) where allies of Hitler. Especially evident in the SS of whom Soro’s adopted father was . Also if true, look at it this way; He doesn’t believe in the belief in God of his adopted father that saved his life ????? His ‘story’ is utter hogwash, like today the best CEO’s are sociopath’s. That is a documented fact. The self proclaimed intellectuals are the fuel of entities like Soros .

This is not a moral question, anymore than playing Monopoly (the board game) is a moral question (unless you try and cheat). Soros is not acting illegally, he is just playing the game as well as the rules allow. And in this interview, and elsewhere, he himself is arguing that the rules of the game should be changed so that people like him cannot “game” the system. He clearly compartmentalises his business from his philanthropy and would defend that by saying that he uses his business “winnings” for good ends. If he did not “win” others would and maybe would not be so philanthropic.

Go ahead and think he’s a great guy, I just happen to see things differently. I have a problem with people who say one thing and do something completely different, i.e. crashing economies via currency manipulation while at the same time spouting off righteously about the so-called need for more regulation. But you’re okay with that. Check.
Here’s a quote by Paul Krugman on Soros:
“Nobody who has read a business magazine in the last few years can be unaware that these days there really are investors who not only move money in anticipation of a currency crisis, but actually do their best to trigger that crisis for fun and profit. These new actors on the scene do not yet have a standard name; my proposed term is ‘Soroi’.”

He doesn’t have a great track record probably his goal is to have more dead at his hand than Atilla . Also there’s another name mentioned in the Bible but that would scare you as an undeniable truth so unlike Soros, I’ll spare you. He thinks so little of people and life he names his ‘ movements ‘ as colors.. I believe the takedown of America is Purple .

We need a MASSIVE PUBLIC DISCUSSION ON THOSE “PLAYERS” that pretend / believe to be “GOD” and “BESIDE THE LAW” or at least like to exploit all kind of flaws in the law and tax and financial system. (that’s why they study law – to make immoral business in the “gray-zone” between crime and legal.
What kind of philosophy is this?
Exploit people and the planet – in order to give out afterwards… is this MASSIVE ADDICTION TO A FEELING OF IMPORTANCE to the extend – that they are willing to sacrifice EVERYTHING and EVERYONE and THE PLANET, THE ECOSYSTEM, THE UNIVERSE in order to achieve that feeling of importance.
This is not success – it is sickness.

“We need a MASSIVE PUBLIC DISCUSSION ON THOSE “PLAYERS” ……. Good luck getting that played out in public on the corrupted MSM, who have been bought by these “robber barons”.

Here is a facebook reply from Ricken Patel after Avaaz was accused of taking money from George Soros….. Ricken Patel. – soros’ foundation gave us a small grant when we first started, but we’ve been 100% member funded for 9 years! Look at what his foundation (open society institute) has supported – just about every good NGO you’ve heard of. I’m proud to have had help from it. The people who hate soros are mostly the far right in the US – precisely because he’s been so effective on pushing progressive causes. If you’re far right, then Avaaz is probably not for you, but if you’re not, don’t believe their propaganda! Oh and there’s also a far left that criticizes Avaaz too but they’re mostly shilling for Putin and al Assad because our members have overwhelmingly supported campaigns against Assad. Some of the far left just can’t contemplate that an enemy of the US could actually be a really terrible dictator. Their animosity towards the us means they can’t hear the voices of the large majority of Syrians who are crying out for help against Assad and Putin. Such a sad lack of perspective, and one that Putin is happy to stoke and take advantage of. The lefty sites posting on Avaaz are often traceable to the Russians.

You might have convinced me until you started talking about the vast majority of Syrians crying out for help against Putin and Assad and “really terrible dictator”.

At that point I realized you had drunk the kool aid.

That’s an informative link “quizzical”, as it its companion piece –
http://www.tim-anderson.info/syria-barrel-bombs-partisan-sources-and-war-propaganda/
There seems to be no limit to the demonization of Assad – every syria piece here re-iterates the indiscriminate barrel bombing of innocent civilians.
Fortunately Hilary – she of the ‘no fly zone’ over Syria ( aka war with Russia) – lost.
So we have deferred ‘incineration now’ (aka nuclear war) to face ‘incineration later’
(aka climate change)
Interesting times 🙂
