It takes a nation to protect the nation

“The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States.”—George Soros

“George Soros is an evil man. He’s anti-God, anti-family, anti-American, and anti-good.” —Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson
Is it possible to lay the global financial meltdown, the radicalizing of the Democratic Party, and America’s moral decline, at the feet of one man? It is indeed possible. 
If George Soros isn’t the world’s preeminent “malignant messianic narcissist,” he’ll do until the real thing comes along. Move over, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot. There’s a new kid on the block.
What we have in Soros, is a multi-billionaire atheist, with skewed moral values, and a sociopath’s lack of conscience. He considers himself to be a world class philosopher, despises capitalism, and just loves social engineering. 
Uh oh. Can you say “trouble,” boys and girls? 
Soros is a real life version of Dr. Evil—with Obama in the role of Mini-Me. Which is not as humorous as it might at first sound. In fact, it’s bone-deep chilling.
György Schwartz, better known to the world as George Soros, was born August 12, 1930 in Hungary. Soros’ father, Tivadar, was a fervent practitioner of Esperanto—a language invented in 1887, and designed to be the first global language, free of any national identity. The Schwartz’s, who were non-practicing Jews, changed the family name to Soros, in order to facilitate assimilation into the gentile population, as the Nazis spread into Hungary during the 1930s. Soros is an Esperanto word meaning “to soar.”
In 1944 Hitler’s henchman Adolf Eichmann arrived in Hungary, to oversee the murder of that country’s Jews. The Soros children were all given fake identity papers, and were shipped out to various Christian families. George Soros ended up with a man whose job was confiscating property from the Jewish population. Soros went with him on his rounds.
Soros has repeatedly called 1944 “the best year of his life.” 
In an article in the Wall Street Journal, Joshua Muravchik notes that, “70% of Mr. Soros’s fellow Jews in Hungary, nearly a half-million human beings, were annihilated in that year. They were dying and disappearing all around him, and their numbers no doubt included many whom he knew personally. Yet he gives no sign that this put any damper on his elation, either at the time or indeed in retrospect.”
During an interview with “Sixty Minute’s” Steve Kroft, Soros was asked about his “best year:” 
Sweetness & Light
KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.
SOROS: Yes. Yes.
KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.
SOROS: Yes. That’s right. Yes.
KROFT: I mean, that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?
SOROS: Not, not at all. Not at all. 
KROFT: No feeling of guilt?
Of course he didn’t feel guilty. Soros has the moral depth of a clam. Nonetheless, he has said, “my goal is to become the conscience of the world.” 
In his article, Muravchik describes how Soros has admitted to having “carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me in trouble.” 
Can you imagine the results of this messianic sociopath being “the conscience of the world?” Ye gods.
Be that as it may. After WWII, Soros attended the London School of Economics, where he fell under the thrall of fellow atheist and Hungarian, Karl Popper, one of his professors. Popper was a mentor to Soros until Popper’s death in 1994. Two of Popper’s most influential teachings concerned “the open society,” and Fallibilism.
Fallibilism is the philosophical doctrine that all claims of knowledge could, in principle, be mistaken. Then again, I could be wrong about that.
The “open society” basically refers to a “test and evaluate” approach to social engineering. Regarding “open society” Roy Childs writes, “Since the Second World War, most of the Western democracies have followed Popper’s advice about piecemeal social engineering and democratic social reform, and it has gotten them into a grand mess.
In 1956 Soros moved to New York City, where he worked on Wall Street, and started amassing his fortune. He specialized in hedge funds and currency speculation.
Soros is absolutely ruthless, amoral, and clever in his business dealings, and quickly made his fortune. By the 1980s he was well on his way to becoming the global powerhouse that he is today.
In an article Kyle-Anne Shiver wrote for “The American Thinker” she says, “Soros made his first billion in 1992 by shorting the British pound with leveraged billions in financial bets, and became known as the man who broke the Bank of England. He broke it on the backs of hard-working British citizens who immediately saw their homes severely devalued and their life savings cut drastically…almost overnight..”
In 1994 Soros crowed in “The New Republic” that “the former Soviet Empire is now called the Soros Empire.” The Russia-gate scandal in 1999, which almost collapsed the Russian economy, was labeled by Rep. Jim Leach, then head of the House Banking Committee, to be “one of the greatest social robberies in human history.” The “Soros Empire” indeed.
In 1997 Soros almost destroyed the economies of Thailand and Malaysia. At the time, Malaysia’s Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohamad, called Soros “a villain, and a moron.” Thai activist Weng Tojirakarn said, “We regard George Soros as a kind of Dracula. He sucks the blood from the people.” (Source)
The website Greek national Pride reports, “[Soros] was part of the full court press that dismantled Yugoslavia and caused trouble in Georgia, Ukraine and Myanmar [Burma]. Calling himself a philanthropist, Soros’ role is to tighten the ideological stranglehold of globalization and the New World Order while promoting his own financial gain. He is without conscience; a capitalist who functions with absolute amorality.”
France has upheld an earlier conviction against Soros, for felony insider trading. Soros was fined 2.9 million dollars. (Source)
Recently, his native Hungary fined Soros 2.2 million dollars for “illegal market manipulation.” Elizabeth Crum writes that “The Hungarian economy has been in a state of transition as the country seeks to become more financially stable and westernized. [Soros’] deliberately driving down the share price of its largest bank put Hungary’s economy into a wicked tailspin, one from which it is still trying to recover.” (Source)
Soros’ grasp, greed, gluttony have a global reach
My point here is that Soros is a planetary parasite. His grasp, greed, and gluttony have a global reach.
But what about America? Soros told Australia’s national newspaper “The Australian” “America, as the centre of the globalised financial markets, was sucking up the savings of the world. This is now over. The game is out,” he said, adding that the time has come for “a very serious adjustment” in American’s consumption habits.
Ready to tighten your belts, America?
World financial crisis was”stimulating” and “in a way, the culmination of my life’s work.”
Soros also told “The Australian” that the world financial crisis was”stimulating” and “in a way, the culmination of my life’s work.”
Stimulating. Have you found the job losses, house foreclosures, and incredible national debt—stimulating? Me neither.
Obama has recently promised 10 billion of our tax dollars to Brazil (yes, billion with a “b”), in order to give them a leg-up in expanding their offshore oil fields. Obama’s largesse towards Brazil, came shortly after Soros invested heavily in Brazilian oil (Petrobras). 
Tait Trussel writes, “The Petrobras loan may be a windfall for Soros and Brazil, but it is a bad deal for the U.S. The American Petroleum Institute estimates that oil exploration in the U.S. could create 160,000 new, well-paying jobs, as well as $1.7 trillion in revenues to federal, state, and local governments, all while fostering greater energy security.”
Do you get the feeling that American taxpayers are being treated like gullible suckers? 
(By the way, if you want a short primer on Far Left economics—and a great cartoon from a 1911 St. Louis Post-Dispatch—go to actor Michael Moriarty’s website).
A blog you might want to keep an eye on is This is their mission: “This blog is dedicated to all…who have suffered due to the ruthless financial pursuits of…George Soros. Your stories are many and varied, but the theme is the same: the destructive power of greed without conscience. We pledge to tirelessly watch Soros wherever he goes and to print the truth in the hope that he will one day stop preying upon the world’s poor…that justice will be served.” 
Back to America. Soros has been actively working to destroy America from the inside out for some years now. People have been warning us. Two years ago Bill O’Reilly said on “The O’Reilly Factor” that “Soros [is] an extremist who wants open borders, a one-world foreign policy, legalized drugs, euthanasia, and on and on. This is off-the-chart dangerous….” (Source)
In 1997 Rachel Ehrenfeld wrote, “Soros uses his philanthropy to change—or more accurately deconstruct—the moral values and attitudes of the Western world, and particularly of the American people. His “open society” is not about freedom; it is about license. His vision rejects the notion of ordered liberty, in favor of an ideology of rights and entitlements.”
Perhaps the most important of these “whistle blowers” are David Horowitz and Richard Poe. Their book “The Shadow Party” outlines in detail how Soros hijacked the Democratic Party, and now owns it lock, stock, and barrel. 
Soros has been packing the Democratic Party with radicals, and ousting moderate Democrats for years. I don’t have time to do the subject justice in this article, but FrontPage’s Jamie Glazov has an excellent interview with Richard Poe, which will fill you in on many of the facts.
The Shadow Party became the Shadow Government, which became the Obama Administration. (another good source) writes, “By his [Soros’] own admission, he helped engineer coups in Slovakia, Croatia, Georgia, and Yugoslavia. When Soros targets a country for “regime change,” he begins by creating a shadow government—a fully formed government-in-exile, ready to assume power when the opportunity arises. The Shadow Party he has built in America greatly resembles those he has created in other countries prior to instigating a coup.”
The above quote was, of course, written before the Presidential Election. So was the following quote from a November 2008 edition of the German magazine “Der Spiegel,” in which Soros gives his opinion on what the next POTUS should do after taking office. “I think we need a large stimulus package….” Soros thought that around 600 billion would be about right. 
Soros also said that “I think this is a great opportunity to finally deal with global warming and energy dependence. The U.S. needs a cap and trade system with auctioning of licenses for emissions rights.”
Any of this sound familiar?
Although Soros doesn’t (yet) own the Republican Party, like he does the Democrats, make no mistake, his tentacles are spread throughout the Republican Party as well.
Soros is a partner in the Carlyle Group where he has invested more than 100 million dollars. According to an article by “The Baltimore Chronicle’s” Alice Cherbonnier, the Carlye Group is run by “a veritable who’s who of former Republican leaders,” from CIA man Frank Carlucci, to CIA head [and ex-President] George Bush, Sr. 
In late 2006, Soros bought about 2 million shares of Halliburton—Dick Cheney’s old stomping grounds. 
When the Democrats and Republicans held their conventions in 2000, Soros held Shadow Party conventions in the same cities, at the same time.. Republican Senator John McCain was the keynote speaker at the “Soros Convention” (so labelled by the late Robert Novak) in Philadelphia.
Soros has dirtied both sides of the aisle, trust me. And if that weren’t bad enough, he has long held connections with the CIA.
And I musn’t forget to mention Soros’ involvement with the LSM (Lame Stream Media), the entertainment industry (e.g. he owns 2.6 million shares of Time Warner), and the various political advertising organizations he funnels millions to.
As Matthew Vadum writes, “The liberal billionaire-turned-philanthropist has been buying up media properties for years in order to drive home his message to the American public that they are too materialistic, too wasteful, too selfish, and too stupid to decide for themselves how to run their own lives.”
Richard Poe writes, “Soros’ private philanthropy, totaling nearly $5 billion, continues undermining America’s traditional Western values. His giving has provided funding of abortion rights, atheism, drug legalization, sex education, euthanasia, feminism, gun control, globalization, mass immigration, gay marriage and other radical experiments
in social engineering.”
Some of the many NGOs (None Government Organizations) that Soros funds with his billions are:, the Apollo Alliance, Media Matters for America, the Tides Foundation, the ACLU, ACORN, PDIA (Project on Death In America), La Raza, and many more.. For a more complete list, with brief descriptions of the NGOs, go to
Poe continues, “Through his global web of Open Society Institutes and Open Society Foundations, Soros has spent 25 years recruiting, training, indoctrinating and installing a network of loyal operatives in 50 countries, placing them in positions of influence and power in media, government, finance and academia.”
As I’ve said before, America currently faces the greatest challenge to its existence as a free republic since the Civil War. And as we go, so goes the world.
So is Soros to blame for all of America’s woes?
Without Soros, would the Saul Alinsky Chicago machine still be rolling? Would SEIU, ACORN, and La Raza still be pursuing their nefarious activities? Would Big Money and lobbyists still be corrupting government? Would our college campuses still be retirement homes for 1960s radicals? Yes, yes, yes, and yes—but to much less of a degree.
The purpose of this article is to point out that without the financial skullduggery and Machiavellian manipulations of Soros, America would be a considerably safer, saner, and stabler place to live. 
America stands at the brink of an abyss, and that fact is directly attributable to Soros. Soros has vigorously, cleverly, and insidiously planned the ruination of America.
His conduct has been immoral, duplicitous, and traitorous. Stripping Soros of his U.S. citizenship, should be one of the first steps taken during the upcoming courtroom trials.
And trials there must be. No matter the cost, the nest of vipers on Capitol Hill, and all of the traitors in the government at large, must be brought to task for their behavior, or a free America is doomed. 
The words of Patrick Henry are apropos: “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”
These days, Patrick Henry’s sentiment is more than just some quaint hyperbole from long ago—it’s a slow burning, but intense, glow that fires our courage and heart.

Interesting that Soros poured money into Petrobas right before the US did.  Coincidence?  I think NOT.


There are many sites on soros. Many are obvious self promotions. If you want to get educated about Soros and his cronies, thi is a good starting place.

Thanks for this link, Paul.  I will use it to make more people aware of how dangerous Soros is to the world.

How Soros made £3B from the Bank of England on Black Wednesday

How The Market Overwhelmed The Central Banks

November 9, 1992: By Thomas Jaffe and Dyan Machan

Here’s one for the “Guinness Book of World Records”: Though the world is chock-a-block with billionaires, George Soros may be the first person to make over $ 1 billion in the span of a single month. That’s right: one month.

SEPTEMBER 1992 was a month international money managers won’t easily forget.  Especially George Soros, the legendary chairman of the Quantum group of funds.  Soros and clients of his four Netherlands Antilles-domiciled pools cleared a cool $ 1.5 billion in just one month as a result of the upheaval in Europe’s markets.  Nor is that all the Soros crowd has made this year: Between the end of August and earl October the new asset value of his flagship $ 3.3 billion (assets) Quantum Fund rose 31%, and it is up 51% year-to-date.  As of mid-October his assets under management had swelled to $ 7 billion.

There were other big winners in the currency turmoil that toppled the pound sterling, the lira and other soft European currencies and humbled the central banks of Europe.  The big winners include Bruce Kovner of Caxton Corp. and Paul Tudor Jones of Jones Investments.  Kovner’s funds made an estimated $ 300 million, increasing assets to about $ 1.6 billion; Jones’ funds were up some $ 250 million, to $ 1.4 billion in assets.

The month of wild trading and sheer excitement that wrecked the European Exchange Rate Mechanism were also good times for leading U.S. banks with big foreign exchange operations, especially Citicorp, J. P. Morgan, Chemical Banking, Bankers Trust, Chase Manhattan, First Chicago and BankAmerica.  Together, in the third quarter, they netted before taxes over $ 800 million more than what they normally earn in a quarter from trading currencies.

What did these people do to make so much money?  They bet on the inevitable.  They bet that the pound and the other weaker European currencies were overpriced against the deutsche mark.  They bet that the politicians and the central banks could not much longer maintain artificially high exchange rates in the interests of European unity.

Europe’s Exchange Rate Mechanism was set up in 1979 by the then-members of the European Economic Community to keep the various European currencies relatively stable against one another.  Relatively narrow fixed trading ranges were established within which the prices of 11 European currencies were supposed to fluctuate.  But the system could work only if the various countries coordinated their economic policies.  In one nation had, say, higher inflation than another, there would be great strain on the system.  Differences in interest rates also would strain the system.  When differences in interest rates and inflation rates among the 11 got out of line, the central banks had to intervene to buy and thus support the weakening currency against speculators and currency hedgers.

In former times, powerful central banks could usually frustrate speculators.  They did so by simply buying massive amounts of the weaker currency and flooding the market with the stronger currency.  But times are changing.  While the central banks can mobilize tens of billions of dollars, trading in foreign currency markets now runs to a trillion dollars a day.

Andrew Weisman, director of currency fund management for French bank Credit du Nord, makes no apologies for the speculative operations mounted by his and other banks against the fixed rates.  “The central banks brought September’s debacle upon themselves,” he asserts.  Why does he say this?  Because the exchange rates they were defending may have made political sense for the European leaders committed to the European Community but no longer made any economic sense.

Soros and the others who won big when the market overwhelmed the banks were mostly involved in one variation or another on a basic technique: Go short the weakest currencies.  Going short a currency can be done in a number of ways.  The simplest is simply to borrow money, say, Italian lire, and convert the borrowed money into, say, deutsche marks at the fixed rates.  Then you wait for the lira to drop sharply against the DM, buy in the now cheaper lira to repay your debt and pocket a lot of extra deutsche marks.

In September the lira was trading at 765 lire to the mark.  Four weeks later it took 980 lire to buy a single DM.  A speculator who had performed this operation would have made a profit equal to 28% of the borrowed sum.

But his profit would have been much more than 28%.  Speculators with substantial credit lines like Soros can borrow on a margin of 5% and get 20-to-1 leverage.  That means you can borrow $ 1 billion for speculation by putting up just $ 50 million in cash.  The result: Instead of having made 28% on your lira bet, you would have made 560%, or $ 280 million.

There are other ways, of course, to play the currency markets: through futures and options, for example.  Soros actually evolved a complex play.

George Soros generally avoids the press, and in this moment of great triumph, he is as elusive as ever.  But it is clear that he had concluded the European central banks were holding lousy hands in their game against the speculators and hedgers.  That’s why he was willing to bet the ranch.

Though Soros would not talk with FORBES, his spokesman did.  He told us Soros has expected financial turmoil in Europe ever since the Berlin Wall collapsed in November 1989, leading to the reunification of Germany.  These events, thought Soros, would doom the Exchange Rate Mechanism.

Soros spokesman explains: “To have one [pan-European] currency and make it stick, you need one economy.  But when one country was booming because it had essentially done a leveraged buyout of East Germany, while the others were in a recession, this made it inappropriate for the others to rely on Germany’s monetary policy in trying to maintain their own currencies.”

After German reunification, in Soros’ view, it was only a matter of time before the European Exchange Rate Mechanism came unglued.

By this year it was clear to just about everyone that some European currencies — the British pound and Italian lira, for example — were fundamentally overvalued in relation to stronger ones such as the deutsche mark and French franc.  As Britain and Italy struggled to make their currencies attractive, they were forced to maintain high interest rates to attract foreign investment dollars.  But this crimped their ability to stimulate their sagging economies.  While the British and Italians tried to deal with weak economies, Germany embarked on a policy of trying to restrain its own economy, overstimulated by the spending on eastern Germany.

There were plenty of players beside George Sorosbetting against the central banks and the ERM.  Foreign exchange traders at money center banks and investment banks like Goldman, Sachs are constantly aware of what is happening in the international money markets.  When large institutions, mutual funds and multinational corporations that do massive currency hedging to protect their profits started selling the weaker European currencies in September, the traders immediately picked up on the jump in volume they were handling for their customers.  They could easily estimate just how great the selling pressure was and how much the central banks would have to spend to prop up those currencies.  Then, the banks and investment houses got into the game for their own accounts.

It was obvious, for instance, that the Bank of England wouldn’t be able to support the pound successfully, so the banks started to use their own capital to heavily sell the currency short.  Some of the more aggressive, like Citicorp and Bankers Trust, made roughly an extra $200 million apiece pretax from the trading turmoil in September.  And it may have been even more.  But the magnitude of these gains won’t show up in the third quarter’s results.  When trading profits are that large, the banks often roll them over into succeeding quarters to minimize their tax bill.

We mentioned that Soros played a complex game.  Here’s how it went.  Soros expected the following: the breakdown of the ERM and a substantial realignment of European currencies; a dramatic drop in European interest rates; a decline for European stock markets.

So, rather than simply shorting the weak currencies, he also placed simultaneous bets on interest rates and securities markets that would be affected by the currency realignments.

In carrying out this operation, Soros and his aides sold short sterling to the tune of about $ 7 billion, bought the mark to the tune of $ 6 billion and, to a lesser extent, bought the French franc.  As a parallel play they bought as much as $ 500 million worth of British stocks even while they were shorting sterling, figuring that equities often rise after a currency devalues.  Soros also went long German and French bonds, while shorting those countries’ equities.  Soros’ reasoning on the French and German markets was that upward valuation was bad for equities but was good for bonds because it would lead to lower interest rates.

“When the Italians finally devalued the lira and the Germans lowered rates slightly,” says the Sorosspokesman, “it was almost like we’d been preparing for an exam for six months and now were finally taking our test.”

After the lira was battered, Soros read that Helmut Schlesinger, president of the Bundesbank, had openly stated that Germany’s central bank would not go to the wall for the pound.  Soros has said that he saw this as a “clarion call for everyone to get out of sterling.”

Because of his strong credit, Soros was able to maintain all these positions with just $ 1 billion in collateral.  He was margined to the eyebrows, but he wasn’t really gambling.  “The profits that people like Soros recently made seem astronomical,” says Gilbert de Botton, chief of London’s $ 5-billion-plus (assets) Global Asset Management.  “But do not rap them on the knuckles on one of the few occasions where they actually could make money.  Even the pros have lost their shirts from time to time because of the absolute power of the central banks.”

Soros knew this, but all his experience, all his instincts told him that this time he was betting with odds overwhelmingly in his favor.

Here’s how his leveraged positions worked out: The pound dropped 10%, the mark and franc both rose roughly 7%, the London stock market gained 7%, German and French bonds were up about 3% apiece, and the German and French stock markets briefly rallied, but basically remained flat.

FORBES has learned that since early October Soros has substantially decreased the size of his hedge.  He has bought pounds and sold marks to cover most of his short position in sterling.  But Soros is still holding on to his British stocks, and continues to be bullish on European bonds.  Soros sees interest rates dropping in Europe and thinks that the Continent is headed into a deep recession.

He has taken no pride in being referred to as the man who beat the central banks.  One money manager who knows Soros well says: “George actually wants to be perceived as helping central bankers.”

Was betting against them being helpful?  In the sense that he was essentially betting on the inevitable, maybe yes.

The volatility in European currencies continues.  Sorosand other shrewd investor will no doubt continue trying to profit off the turbulence.  But it will be a long time before a chance to make a killing like this year’s appears again.

Hungary Plans to Crack Down on All Soros-Funded NGOs

  • Ruling Fidesz party vice president pledges to ‘sweep out’ NGOs
  • Premier Orban, Trump backer, vowed to build ‘illiberal state’

Hungary plans to crack down on non-governmental organizations linked to billionaire George Soros now that Donald Trump will occupy the White House, according to the deputy head of Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s party.

The European Union member will use “all the tools at its disposal” to “sweep out” NGOs funded by the Hungarian-born financier, which “serve global capitalists and back political correctness over national governments,” Szilard Nemeth, a vice president of the ruling Fidesz party, told reporters on Tuesday. No one answered the phone at the Open Society Institute in Budapest when Bloomberg News called outside business hours.

“I feel that there is an opportunity for this, internationally,” because of Trump’s election, state news service MTI reported Nemeth as saying. Lawmakers will start debating a bill to let authorities audit NGO executives, according to parliament’s legislative agenda.

Orban, the first European leader to publicly back Trump’s campaign, has ignored criticism from the European Commission and U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration for building a self-described “illiberal state” modeled on authoritarian regimes including Russia, China and Turkey. In 2014, Orban personally ordered the state audit agency to probe foundations financed by Norway and said that civil society groups financed from abroad were covers for “paid political activists.”

Orban and his administration have frequently singled out NGOs supported by Soros, a U.S. Democratic Party supporter with a wide network of organizations that promote democracy in formerly communist eastern Europe.

‘Power Structure’

Trump also accused the 86-year-old billionaire of being part of “a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities.”

In a pre-election commercial, he showed images of Soros along with Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. CEO Lloyd Blankfein, all of whom are Jewish. The Anti-Defamation League criticized the ad for touching on “subjects that anti-Semites have used for ages.”

Hungary Looks to 'Sweep Away' Soros-Linked Organisations

Human trafficking charges dropped against NGOs after Soros-backed plea

A criminal court on the Greek island of Lesvos has acquitted five foreign NGO workers who were facing charges of human trafficking.

Published: May 10, 2018, 8:59 am

Three Spanish firemen, members of the NGO Proem-Aid, and two Danes, members of the NGO Team Humanity, were first arrested by port authority staff on January 14, 2016 at sea between Greece and Turkey.

Proem-Aid, from Seville and SMH from Gipuzkoa work together during summer in the “Mediterranean death corridor” off the Libyan coast to bring migrants to Europe.

The lead prosecutor had proposed they be found guilty, but the court ruled that the five had not committed the crimes they had been charged with. The Greek judge ordered that they be allowed to leave the country, and have all guarantee deposits returned to them.

Their trial attracted the interest of European media and was attended by observers from every Spanish party, while the interior minister of the autonomous region of Andalusia testified as witness in their defense, Greek news agency AMNA reported.

Testimonies in their defense were also heard from Lesvos SYRIZA lawmaker Giorgos Pallis, an NGO captain of a rescue vessel together with an independent volunteer.

Supporters of the NGOs broke into applause after the ruling. Earlier in the day, Amnesty International had issued a scathing condemnation of the case brought against the alleged human traffickers in Greece.

But a huge donation from an organisation funded by the billionaire George Soros helped boost Amnesty International operating surplus by 70 per cent in at least one country this year.

There has been a stand-off between the Irish Standards in Public Office Commission (Sipo) and Amnesty after a ruling that the funding by Soros was in breach of the 1997 Electoral Act. The legislation bans overseas donations of more than €100 from third party organisations for “political purposes”. The funds came from the Open Society Foundations (OSF).

In a letter, Amnesty campaign chief Maria Serano said the three Spanish firemen were on Lesvos to put their skills to use and save children, women and men from drowning. The NGOs’ efforts to save lives at sea should be praised and supported, she added.

“This is a strong signal to other NGOs and just people working for humanity,” one of the Danish defendants, Salam Aldeen, the founder of Team Humanity, told the New York Times after the verdict. “Saving lives is not a crime, rescuing people is not a crime.”

The other “Dane”, Mohammed el-Abassi, who also worked for Team Humanity, volunteered with the three Spanish firefighters. Together they faced as many as 15 years in prison.

Verónica Pérez, a Spanish Socialist politician who had also travelled to Greece, told the NYT: “Humanitarian aid should never be condemned or sentenced but instead the opposite: It should be valued.”

Helping migrants cross the Aegean Sea from Turkey into Greece, is peddled as a “humanitarian effort”, but these actions have real demographic and political implications for the nations that end up receiving the migrants.

The acquittal was made possible because of the intervention by two different European governments and at least one international “humanitarian” organisation with Soros’ backing.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).
