BREAKING: George Soros Gave $18 Billion to Disturbing Plan

October 18, 2017

Many on the right see billionaire financier George Soros as a deeply sinister figure in international politics, and Soros likely deepened these suspicions with his latest move.

Soros recently transferred $18 billion dollars to his Open Society Foundations, a global funding network that gives money to many far-Left causes and organizations. 

This transfer has many conservatives worried, especially since the Open Society Foundations has been linked to the Euromaidan rebellion in Ukraine and Black Lives Matter in the United States. With $18 billion, the groups could make a substantial impact on governments around the world — and not for the better.

“Long-Term Support” 

According to the Wall Street Journal, which first broke the story, $18 billion represents a majority of Soros’ personal wealth. This means that Soros sees the Open Society Foundations as a key part of his legacy.

Soros has said that this donation is part of “long-term support” for both the organization and its goals.

One of those goals may be attacking President Donald Trump.

After all, Soros told an audience of billionaires at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland that President Trump will likely “fail.”

Soros said:

I personally am convinced that he is going to fail. Not because of people like me who would like him to fail. But because his ideas that guide him are inherently self-contradictory, and the contradictions are actually already embodied by his advisers… and his Cabinet.

Tax Cheat? 

While the transfer of all this money is certainly emblematic of Soros’ commitment to far-Left politics, some also see it as a naked ploy to cheat the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Grover Norquist, president of the Americans for Tax Reform organization, wrote on Twitter that Soros’ transfer was an elaborate way to avoid paying the estate tax, also known as “the death tax”:

Report: Soros is hiding $18 billion from the death tax by putting it in his foundation. He doesn’t trust the gov with his money. Just yours

While this is speculation, it is in keeping with Soros’ history of dodgy tax practices. Over two years ago, the mainstream media reported that Soros was suspected of owing the IRS millions of dollars in unpaid back taxes.

Ironically, the same man who told journalist Fareed Zakaria that he “should pay more taxes” because of his wealth routinely closed down hedge funds and transferred their earnings to tax havens like the Cayman Islands in order to avoid the full wrath of the IRS.

In 2004, Soros said that his “philanthropy” made him feel like a “god.” It seems that this massive contribution to Open Society Foundations is one way for Soros to continue to play the puppet master long after his death.
