George Soros: The Puppetmaster

Written by 

Fans of the Glenn Beck program on the Fox News Channel have long agreed with the conservative pundit that George Soros, left-wing billionaire, is a “spooky dude.” Just how spooky, however, remained to be seen, until Beck’s television special, “George Soros: The Puppetmaster,” which was viewed by over three million Americans on its first day.

Being responsible for the orchestration of both economic collapses and communist revolutions in a number of countries; being a rabid Anti-Semite, anti-capitalist, and a leading proponent of the formulation of a new world order; and harboring delusional egotistical fantasies about himself prove Soros to be a far more dangerous individual than anyone could have dreamed.

Anti-Semitic Background

George Soros was born George Schwartz in Hungary in 1930. Both of his parents were Jews, though non-religious. In his early childhood, Schwartz's parents changed their last name to “Soros” to disguise their Jewish background and embrace their Hungarian roots.

When Soros was a teenager under Hitler, he and his family helped to confiscate land from his Jewish neighbors. He indicated in an interview much later in his life that he did not feel guilty for it.

“I don’t deny the Jews their national existence,” he told Steve Kroft in a 1998 60 Minutes interview, “but I don’t want to be part of it.”

In his book Underwriting Democracy, Soros attributed his lack of Jewish sympathy to his mother:

My mother was quite anti-Semitic, and ashamed of being Jewish.

I left Hungary behind and my Jewishness did not express itself in a sense of tribal loyalty that would have led me to support Israel.

Economic Collapse

Known as “the man who broke the bank of England,” Soros prides himself on this billion-dollar endeavor. In The Shadow Party, Richard Poe relates:

He famously shorted the British pound in 1992, wagering $10 billion on a drop in its value. In a desperate bid to keep its currency afloat, the Bank of England tried to buy up pounds as fast as Soros could dump them. However, as more and more investors followed Soros’ lead and joined his efforts, the Bank of England eventually gave up.

The British pound was devalued, launching a tsunami of financial turmoil from Tokyo to Rome. When it was over, millions of hardworking Britons confronted their diminished savings, while Soros counted his gains. He had personally made nearly $2 billion on the catastrophe.

In 1997, the Malaysian Prime Minister accused Soros of doing the same to the Malaysian currency. In Thailand, Soros was labeled “an economic war criminal [who] sucks the blood from the people.”

According to Beck, Soros has been accused of causing financial collapses in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, and Russia.

Revolution Orchestrator

In the book The Shadow Party, writers David Horowitz and Richard Poe outline a step-by-step system Soros used to bring about regime collapse. Beck explains that Soros has made progress in this arena in efforts to undermine the U.S. government.

?Step 1 — Create a Shadow Government

Under the guise of humanitarian aide, Soros created the Open Society Institute (OSI), which donates billions of dollars to “charities” around the globe, including the 2000 “shadow conventions” which were hosted by Ariana Huffington and Reverend Jim Wallis, a self-proclaimed Marxist.

Of the many “charities” that have received funding from the OSI are ACORN, Apollo Alliance, Free Press,, the TIDES Foundation, American Civil Liberties Union, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, Center for American Progress, National Council of La Raza, Campaign for America’s Future, Foundation to Promote Open Society, and many, many more. In fact, the list was so long that when Glenn Beck revealed the scroll on which only half of the names of the “charities” appeared, it took up the length of his studio.

Likewise, by way of the Center for American Progress, a leftist think-tank, Soros has helped to manipulate America’s federal policies, including in the handling of the BP oil spill.

Through Soros’ Tides Foundation, organizations such as the Center for American Progress, the Institute for Policy Studies, and the Apollo Alliance — the latter of which wrote the $787 billion stimulus bill — are funded. The Tides Foundation also played an intricate role in the funding for the Chicago Climate Exchange.

?Step 2 — Control the Airwaves

Perhaps the most obvious of Soros’ endeavors, his Open Society Institute, recently donated $1.8 billion to National Public Radio (NPR) — interestingly, in that same week Juan Williams was fired for his appearance on Fox News’ The O'Reilly Factor — so that NPR could hire 100 new journalists.

Similarly, Soros wrote a $100 million check for Media Matters, asking them to destroy Fox News.

His Open Society Institute funds Free Press, an organization that has driven the movement to end “hate speech,” i.e. conservative speech, on talk radio, as well as fund the Huffington Post.

Additionally, George Soros has donated $1 million to, a website created by the NAACP to help combat alleged Tea Party racism.

?Step 3 — Destabilize the State

George Soros has openly admitted that the United States needs an “orderly decline of the dollar” in order to bring about the new world order, in which the “United States should find its place.” In order for this to happen, according to Soros, “[Americans] would have to give up some of their privileges.”

As of now, the United States remains the “main obstacle of a stable and just world order,” explains Soros.

Likewise, Soros has declared that capitalism “poses some serious threats to open society.”

He asserts that in order “to stabilize and regulate a truly global economy, we need a global society to support our global economy.”

The sovereign United States poses a threat to Soros’ global exploits and so must be conquered.

Through his various “charitable” donations to groups such as La Raza and, Soros has helped create disorder and panic by way of angry protests. Working closely with Van Jones, former member of STORM (Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement), and Zack Exley, former trainer of anarchists in the Ruckus Society, as well as the founder of Students for a Democratic Society, Alan Haber, Soros has made friends with professional agitators.

He has also launched a campaign against capitalism, infiltrating academia to promote anti-capitalist sentiment among students. Soros’ Rides Center has funded the creation of the Story of Stuff video series, video curricula for students that vilify capitalism and the American love of capitalism.

Likewise, Soros’ think tanks such as the Center for American Progress and the Institute for Policy Studies, both which have massive influence in the White House, continue to encourage the reckless spending which is crippling the American economy.

According to Zubi Diamond, author of The Wizards of Wall Street, the Federal Reserve’s newest action of “quantitative easing” is “in alignment with George Soros’ agenda to destroy global capitalism” by way of declining the dollar.

Diamond contends that Soros is betting on a U.S. financial collapse. “The collapse of capitalism will be a big day for George Soros and members of the Managed Funds Association. They are betting against the dollar and moving assets to gold and to the emerging economies. They are betting against U.S. survival as a capitalist nation.”

Likewise, Soros played an integral role in helping to elect President Barack Obama, whose administration, according to Diamond, has launched a “war on capitalism” and a “war on wealth,” particularly under the direction of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.

Combining agitation with a weak economy, Soros has the perfect formula for destabilizing the state.

?Step 4 — Provoke an Election Crisis

According to Richard Poe, George Soros used Sen. John McCain to push the McCain-Feingold Act, a law which restricts the ability of grassroots groups to advertise on television, while allowing major media free rein to promote their Democratic candidates.

The act was devised by Soros in 1994, explains Poe, but did not get passed until 2002 as a result of the efforts of Senators McCain and Feingold. Following the passage of the act, Soros rewarded McCain for his efforts by giving money to McCain’s Reform Institute.

Following the passage of the McCain-Feingold Act, there was an explosion of 501(c)(3) groups. Examples of such groups include Reverend Jim Wallis’ Sojourners, Van Jones’ Color for Change, and Soros’ Are you beginning to recognize a pattern?

Soros’ Open Society Institute also funds ACORN, the group behind massive voter fraud in 2008, and SOS (Secretary of State project), since the Secretary of State is the one who certifies election results. It has been widely claimed that it is by way of one of Soros’ SOS agents that Al Franken was able to win the election in Minnesota in 2009.

?Step 5 — Take Power/Stage Demonstrations

According to Beck, this process is only beginning but is underway. “We have seen the beginnings already, through the One Nation Rally in Washington, D.C., which was a project of the Tides Center.”

Also, OSI’s donations to aggressive vigilante groups like the Ruckus Society, and Faith and Public Life are not-so-subtle ways of promoting violent demonstrations.

Likewise, Bertha Lewis of ACORN, a group funded by George Soros, attempted to incite fear when she told a room full of Young Socialists that they would be attacked in their sleep by Tea Partiers. She concluded, “Organize, get out into the streets, you really have got to circle the wagon, this is not rhetoric or hyperbole. This is real.”


According to The Shadow Party, Soros adhered to this very system when he helped to bring about the Velvet Revolution in the Czech Republic, as well as revolutions in Ukraine, Croatia, and Jordan.

Anti-American Soros

Soros is a proponent of globalization, and as such, is a necessary enemy of the United States. In a 1998 article entitled “The Crisis of Global Capitalism,” Soros wrote, “The sovereignty of states must be subordinated to international law and international institutions. Interestingly, the greatest opposition to this idea is coming from the United States.”

Soros wants American authority to be replaced by greater authority in the hands of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, and supports the creation of the International Credit Insurance Corp to establish supervision over national supervisory authorities.

He also contends that the United States will have to lose its role as an undisputed dominant force. “The veto power that we have in the International Monetary Fund will disappear. We will be downsized. At the same time, hopefully, we will have a better working system and opponents will be more downsized than we will.”

Soros has also called for cap and trade as a “great opportunity to finally deal with global warming and energy dependence,” though it is clear that his support of such a system rests upon the negative impacts that cap and trade would have on the American economy.

In a 2008 interview with BBC, Soros said, “I am against market fundamentalism. I think this propaganda that government involvement is always bad has been very successful — but also very harmful to our society.”

Soros the Narcissist

Soros has narcissistic tendencies, or “messianic fantasies.” In his book, The Independent, Soros wrote, “It is sort of a disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” He later observed, “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood which I felt I had to control, otherwise I might end up in the loony bin. But when I made my way in the world, I wanted to indulge myself in my fantasies to the extent that I could afford.”

Soros’ Response

Prior to the airing of Beck’s "Puppetmaster" episode, Soros’ right-hand man reached out to an executive of the Glenn Beck program. According to Soros’ aide, Beck is embarking on a dangerous mission, as he is engaging in a right-wing conspiracy. The aide also accused Beck of “hurting Mr. Soros and his business.”

When it became clear that Beck’s executive would not budge on the airing of the "Puppetmaster" episode, Soros’ aide gave Beck’s executive a gift for Glenn Beck — a threat cloaked as a gift. The aide handed the executive a 1957 DVD created by a communist, Budd Schulberg: A Face in the Crowd, starring Andy Griffith.

The video is about an alcoholic promoted to national fame as a television idol, but who, despite his fame and fortune, proves to be nothing more than an evil person. He uses his influence to sway the masses and control political elections. Soros’ aide made it very clear that they believe the character in the film to be a close depiction of Glenn Beck, though ironically, many think Griffith’s character more closely resembles Soros.

Also, on the same day the first installment of “Soros: The Puppetmaster” was aired, the Open Society Institute released a short video highlighting Soros’ efforts as a philanthropist and celebrating his various “achievements.”

Beck believes that Soros’ actions in response to the "Puppetmaster" episode indicate panic.

Let’s hope for the sake of America that he is right.
