George Soros returns to politics, donates $25 million to Hillary and other liberal causes
Despite having decreased his political involvement over the course of the Obama administration, George Soros has since made a return to politics.
Soros has donated or committed more than $25 million to boost Hillary Clinton and other Democratic candidates and causes, according to Federal Election Commission records and interviews with his associates and Democratic fundraising operatives. And some of his associates say they expect Soros, who amassed a fortune estimated at $24.9 billion through risky currency trades, to give even more as Election Day nears.
The 85-year-old Hungarian-born New Yorker had planned to attend his first-ever Democratic convention here to watch Clinton, with whom he has a 25-year relationship, accept the Democratic presidential nomination on Thursday. But an associate said he decided to cancel the trip this week because Soros, who recently returned to active trading, felt he needed to closely monitor the economic situation in Europe.
Nonetheless, people close to Soros say he seems more politically engaged than he’s been in years, motivated, they say, by a combination of faith in Clinton and fear of her GOP rival Donald Trump, who Soros has accused of “doing the work of ISIS” by stoking fears.
Soros’ political adviser Michael Vachon said his boss “has been a consistent donor to Democratic causes, but this year the political stakes are exceptionally high.” Vachon added: “They were high even before Trump became the nominee because of the hostility on the other side toward many of the issues George cares most about and has worked to support for many years, including immigration reform, criminal justice reform and religious tolerance.”
Why has Soros returned? Why now?
The answer, of course, is that he rightfully understands that Donald Trump threatens the interests of the international elite.
In other words, Trump is a nationalist, whereas Soros and his associates are globalists. Trump advocates the nation state and demands self-determination; the globalists, however, are eager to integrate the world into a single, unified market – one free of borders, nationalism, and coherence.
And, as we all know, globalism vs. nationalism is the defining dialectic of our time.
This isn't anything new, though. For those unaware, George Soros has been working to dismantle Western Civilization for decades.
