Some people very strongly believe that his Open Society Foundations has given high ticket donations to Black Lives Matter and other minority/LGBT powered movements in their activities against the United States. Some people swear he is really helping to fund Black Lives Matter and its ilk.  Others say he is innocent of such activities. If there is something to the conspiracy story, here is one way it might be playing out:  Jews who were either forced or otherwise voluntarily cooperated with the Nazis for their own protection or gain had later gotten hold of some of the Jewish items after the war.  Again, these items were stolen from the Jewish people doomed to the Holocaust, and could be anything from high cost art work and jewelry to other assets.  If true,  these Jews, including George Soros, secretly retained the items which added up to millions of dollars in value.  They then invested them in other things and together became billionaires.  Whether George Soros was the main instigator and leader or not , perhaps his system passed on to his children or other close family members or friends who have either followed his legacy or taken it to even more sinister heights.  Perhaps someone else really controls Open Society Foundations.  Perhaps he lost control a long time ago, or has been used as a front.  Whatever the case might be, perhaps these Jews are a side-branch of Jewishness that has made it their goal to punish certain people, or even the world, for the Holocaust.  Perhaps much of the phenomena we are experiencing comes from a secret network of Jews hiding from the world.  It’s probably a good idea to watch for “others” among the Open Society Foundations for any such conspiracies, because George Soros is very old.  Look for a male who is very high energy and ruthless, capable of holding a grudge for decades, and part of a lineage of Holocaust revenge types.  They might have had members of their families or entire towns with family members in the Holocaust.  If there is a Hungary connection that includes but goes beyond Soros, look into which towns might have held their family members lost in that manner.  Get clear on what all of his family members do, what special education or qualifications they might have to carry out a conspiracy of this magnitude.  It is hard to connect Islamic Jew Haters with Jews who work with radical Islam among Black Lives Matter.  It is hard to recognize the fair-skinned Jew surrounded by South Africans singing songs about destroying whites, it’s hard to figure why Bernie Sanders has helped support the minority power movement, etc, etc…but there are strong indications that despite these apparent contradictions, Jews have indeed worked with the minority power movement.  But remember, Jews can and often do come in all shapes, sizes and colors, and some might be the darker skinned, curlier haired types. In addition, there is that old Communist/Socialist aspect that was there even before World War II.  The leftists of this ilk have been working with the Black Panthers and others for many years now, despite all the apparent contradictions.  In addition, Nazis had been working with Islamic groups durin the war, and many Muslims shared a hatred of Jews with the Nazis.  So you see, all of these apparent contradictions, yet people working together along certain strands of interconnectivity. We are not to confuse certain Islamic hatred of Jews as the main reason for hating Jews.  Their hatred and this possible conspiracy of Jews could be two different things. This is because the Islamic groups vocalizing hatred of Jews at every turn are turning their wrath on all Jews, not just a minor conspiratorial group.  If we were dealing with the real thing, the Muslims would differentiate between Jews.  Instead, we seem to get conspiracy stories of various types about Jews, but nothing that seems to take us to something real that we get our hands on.  The conspiracy stories seem to take us down false corridors while distracting us from what really could be going on. If the above conspiracy idea has any validity, it might explain why Soros’ group got hold of so much money.  Maybe he made a vow to use the fruits of all the Holocaust victims through revenge in their name.  Maybe he was angry the Nazis put his father in that position of turning on his own Jewish people that this too is a reason for revenge. Whatever the case might be, it is best to review the many stories on Soros and keep your mind open to various possibilities. Also on BLM/Some Groups of Concern: Three groups with money to consider are the Saudis, the Iranians and China. The Saudis have been known to fund anything they believe will support their power.  The Iranians have fed power movements in various countries over the years. Yet others like the Russians and French have often been caught feeding our enemies.  Various types of people have voiced concerns that George Soros is also involved in such staged events.  Soros is said to have donated large sums to the ACLU and their allies; just exactly how all that works together or whether yet other agents in the Soros forum are involved would require meticulous investigations and honest, objective reporting - many stories on the Internet about Soros seem fishy. Soros Not a Conspiracy View: Reuters 2020/09  [Note from PF:  Reuters article says its not true] https //www reuters com/article/uk-factcheck-false-george-soros-claims/fact-checkfalseclaims-about-george- soros-idUSKBN23P2XJ Excerpt:   Social media users have been sharing an image online that makes several disparaging and false claims about George Soros. Some of these claims include Soros being a former Nazi, Soros “swearing to destroy the U.S.A.”, Soros owning ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter, and Soros paying for protesters. Examples can be seen here and here.   George Soros is a billionaire philanthropist and founder of Open Society Foundations. He has been the target of multiple conspiracy theories and misinformation on social media (here). Previous Reuters fact checks debunking claims about Soros can be found here and here.   Open Society Foundations told Reuters via email that the claims made toward Soros in these posts are “false” and “do a disservice to the very bedrock of our democracy, as enshrined in the First Amendment.”  SOROS IS NOT A FORMER NAZI:  Reuters debunked a false claim that a photograph shows a young Soros in a Nazi uniform (here). During the time Nazis were active, Soros would not have met the age requirements to be in the Schutzstaffel. Soros and his family were Hungarian Jews who lived in Budapest during the war, disguising their identities for safety. In 1947 at the age of 17, Soros moved to London to attend university (more  here).   By the time Soros was 17, the fall of Nazi Germany had already happened. Soros could not possibly have been involved in the Nazi party which was active between 1920-1945. He is also a Hungarian Jew, further disproving this theory. In a 1998 60 Minutes interview (youtu.be/AiqHiQYuoOs) Soros says his father forged his family’s identity to protect them. Soros, as a teenager, was placed under custody of a government official with the premise of being his godson. During this time, Soros witnessed (but did not actively participate in) the confiscation of Jewish property (here). In the interview, Soros says he doesn’t feel guilt looking back at these events, mentioning that he was a child at the time and that he was a “spectator” to something that would have happened regardless of his presence.  SOROS NEVER SWORE TO “DESTROY THE USA”  Reuters found no evidence of Soros ever saying this. Other fact checkers have also debunked this specific “quote” (here, here).  An older version of the quote attributes it to a Newsweek interview but there is no evidence Soros said this in their archive. One article quotes Steve Bannon comparing politics to war, saying, “They fight, look at [George] Soros and these other NGOs...they destroy you.” The article also states that, according to Bannon, Soros threatened to “destroy him personally.” (here).  SOROS DOES NOT “OWN” ANTIFA AND BLACK LIVES MATTER   George Soros does not “own” ANTIFA or Black Lives Matter.  A spokesperson for Open Society Foundations told Reuters via email: “We proudly support organizations that promote civic engagement and champion the right of all Americans to petition their government for redress of grievances. Those protesting the death of Mr. Floyd and police brutality across the nation do so out of a deep and abiding concern for country; they don’t do so for pay from these foundations or any other, as some cynics claim.” https //www reuters com/article/uk-factcheck-false-george-soros-claims/fact-checkfalseclaims-about-george- soros-idUSKBN23P2XJ George Soros Conspiracy View Seen also on Notes 10/15/2020 VOA News 2020/09/16   Anarchist Groups Tied to Riots in 4 US Cities  By Masood Farivar https //www voanews com/extremism-watch/anarchist-groups-tied-riots-4-us-cities Excerpt “Many of the features of anarcho-socialist extremism seem to parallel the key tactical structures documented in libertarian-anarchist and Jihadi extremism,” says the 24-page report, entitled “Network Enabled Anarchy.” [from ncri dot org - when you click on the link, you get  a warning about the website:  The Network Contagion Research Institute (NCRI) is a neutral and independent third party whose mission it is to track, expose, and combat misinformation, deception, manipulation, and hate across social media channels.  Acting as a public benefit corporation, NCRI is a not-for-profit organization that seeks to explore safe ways to audit, reveal challenges, devise solutions, and create transparency in partnerships with social media platforms, public safety organizations, and government agencies.

VARIOUS WEALTHY BACKERS OF BLM Black Lives Matter Created and/or Spurred by Wealthy The Black Lives Matter Movement is the Enemy of African Americans By LESLIE TAHA https //www yonkerstribune com/2020/06/the-black-lives-matter-movement-is-the-enemy-of-african-americans- by-leslie-taha Excerpt:  Most people think that Black Lives Matter is a grass-roots, black created, black run organization dedicated to fighting racism. It most certainly is not. The Black Lives Matter movement is the creation of a group of a few very wealthy individuals, non-profit corporations, and the corporate media (incidentally, 90% of the U.S. media is controlled by only six corporations) Business Insider These 6 corporations control 90 of the media in America https://www.businessinsider.com/these-6-corporations-control-90-of-the-media-in-america-2012-6 On the official Black Lives Matter website, BlackLivesMatter.com https://blacklivesmatter.com/ it states that Black Lives Matter is a global network foundation that is active in the U.S., U.K., and Canada. A global network! Who funds Black Lives Matter? It’s funded by billionaires George Soros (Open Society Foundation), Rob McKay (Taco Bell heir), the Ford Foundation, the Borealis Philanthropy, the Democracy Alliance, and many others. Not exactly what I would call a black run grass-roots organization. If these facts alone don’t cause you to rethink the whole Black Lives Matter thing, then you just aren’t paying attention.

And the club and some of its members also are considering ways to funnel support directly to scrappier local groups that have utilized confrontational tactics to inject their grievances into the political debate. https //populardemocracy org/news-and-publications/major-donors-consider-funding-black-lives-matter-0 BMA Funders dot org Who is funding Black Lives Matter http://bmafunders.org/who-is-funding-black-lives-matter/ Yonkers Tribune 2020/06   The Black Lives Matter Movement is the enemy of African Americans https //www yonkerstribune com/2020/06/the-black-lives-matter-movement-is-the-enemy-of-african-americans- by-leslie-taha JUSTICE DEPT LOOKS IN ON FUNDING Justice Department investigates funding of BLM in Portland and other citieis USA Today 2020/09/01  Justice Department investigates protest leaders, funding in Portland and other cities Kevin Johnson https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2020/09/01/justice-department-investigating-blm-protest-leaders- funding/3454937001/ THOUSAND CURRENTS CONNECTION Some Politicians Label BLM a Terrorist Organization 2020/08/06   Giuliani says Black Lives Matter is 'domestic terrorist' group  BY KAELAN DEESE https://thehill.com/homenews/media/510953-giuliani-says-black-lives-matter-is-domestic-terrorist-group Susan Rosenberg, Thousand Currents -Vice chair of the board of directors of Thousand Currents. -Formally of Weather Underground and M19 (May 19 Communist Organization) -In 1970s and 1980s—including bombings at an FBI field office in Staten Island, the Navy Yard Officers’ Club in Washington, DC, and even the U.S. Capitol building, Thousand Currents behind BLM: it’s a fiscally sponsored project of BLM Global Network Foundation Sky News Australia 2020/07/14   Inappropriate for 'convicted terrorist' Susan Rosenberg to oversee BLM fund https //www youtube.com/watch?v=o57Yaqbankc abor Senator Kimberly Kitching says it is “not appropriate to have someone who is a convicted terrorist” on a board of directors linked to the Black Lives Matter movement.

And it landed her in federal prison for 16 years.  If there were any question whether Black Lives Matter has ideological ties to the Communist terrorists of the 1960s, the story of Susan Rosenberg [archived here] should put that issue to bed.  [Editor’s note: The webpage for Thousand Current’s board of directors was taken down within hours of this post’s publication. Fortunately, the board of directors webpage is archived here.]  Susan Rosenberg and Thousand Currents:  Rosenberg, who started out as a member of the 1960s revolutionary group Weather Underground, graduated into even more violent, and arguably successful, forms of terrorism in the 1970s and 1980s—including bombings at an FBI field office in Staten Island, the Navy Yard Officers’ Club in Washington, DC, and even the U.S. Capitol building, where she damaged a representation of the greatest of the Democrat defenders of slavery, John C. Calhoun. She currently serves as human and prisoner rights advocate and a vice chair of the board of directors of Thousand Currents. As my colleague Robert Stilson explains here, BLM Global Network Foundation has been a fiscally sponsored project of Thousand Currents, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, since 2016.  That means the BLM group, which runs the BlackLivesMatter.com website, does not have its own IRS tax-exempt status but is operating as a “project” of an organization that does. In the case of 501(c)(3) fiscally sponsored projects, this allows tax-deductible donations to be made to the project. Marxist Connections When “Black Lives Matter” is used to refer to an organization, it typically means the BLM Global Network Foundation that traces its beginnings to “three radical Black organizers — Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi.” Cullors recently went viral online when she admitted that she and others in the group were “trained Marxists.” This leads to confusion when people express their support for “Black Lives,” because they may not realize this organization is ideologically tied—to the point of having Rosenberg on the board of the central group—with trained Marxists with a history of extremism and violence. In fact, Rosenberg was a member of the May 19th Communist Organization (M19). It was, according to this NY Post article from January 2020, “the nation’s only woman-run terror group,” as recounted by William Rosenau in his book Tonight We Bombed the U.S. Capitol. According to the Post, M19 spent two years engaged in bombings in New York and Washington, DC, that were meant “to cast a cloud over what President Ronald Reagan’s re-election campaign was promising: a sunny, prosperous ‘Morning in America.’ Reagan’s election in 1980 told the remnants of America’s radical left that the country had rejected their call to revolution.” Middle-class and college-educated, M19’s members shared a disdain for their own whiteness. To prove they weren’t merely “mouthing revolution,” they allied with the Black Liberation Army to break cop-killer Joanne Chesimard (aka Assata Shakur) out of prison in 1979. Two years later they assisted in the notorious Brink’s robbery of 1981, which killed two Nyack police officers and a bank guard. In an eerily familiar incident on November 7, 1983, they even managed to pose as tourists at the U.S. Capitol building, planting a duffel bag with a bomb under a bench outside the Senate chamber, and cratering a wall  and shattering chandeliers that ultimately damaged a portrait of 19th-century Sen. John C. Calhoun. Rosenberg and another M19 member, Tim Blunk, were arrested in November 1984 in Cherry Hill, NJ, in front of a storage unit containing 740 pounds of unstable dynamite stolen from a Texas construction firm four years earlier. Rosenberg was also wanted in connection with the 1981 Brink’s robbery. She was never charged in those crimes. After 16 years in prison, she was released in 2001 when President Bill Clinton commuted her sentence, an act that outraged even the left-leaning New York Times. Rosenberg’s Revolutionary Ideology:  National Review columnist and former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy described her trial this way in a 2008 column:  Rosenberg turned her New Jersey terrorism trial into a circus, posturing as a political prisoner. At her sentencing, she urged her supporters to continue their war against the United States. (“When we were first captured we said, we’re caught, we’re not defeated, long live the armed struggle. We’d like to take this moment to rededicate ourselves to our revolutionary principles, to our commitment to continue to fight for the defeat of U.S. imperialism.”) She expressed remorse about only one thing: she hadn’t had the courage to shoot it out with the police who’d apprehended her. Rosenberg has written a book about her exploits in which she justifies her actions this way:  I pursued a path that seemed to me a logical step beyond legal protest: the use of political violence. Did that make me a terrorist? In my mind, then and now, the answer is no. I say this because no act in which I was involved ever had violence against persons as its object or consequence. The “Protestors”:  Would the “protestors” destroying statues say the same about their behavior over the last several weeks? It’s a fair bet they would. In fact, Nikole Hannah-Jones, creator of the factually erroneous New York Times “1619 Project” proudly claims her project served as inspiration for the current iconoclastic destruction happening around the nation. The long and the short of Rosenberg’s involvement with Thousand Currents is that numerous Black Lives Matter organizers have ties to extremist movements of the past, and are not some brand new movement simply fighting for marginalized people today. And that the goal of destruction and violence is more of a political tool than a reaction to injustice. https //capitalresearch org/article/a-terrorists-ties-to-a-leading-black-lives-matter-group/ From Starkes, also seen on the Taleeb Starkes page in BLM *pp. 3-4 from above--  Starkes quotes NY Post:  “Anheuser-Busch gave him six figures, Colgate-Palmolive shelled out $50,000 and Macys and Pfizer have contributed thousands…Almost 50 companies, including Pepsico, General Motors, Wal-mart, FedEx, Continental Airlines, Johnson and Johnson and Chase, and some labor unions…” New York Times 2020/06/14   Racial Justice Groups Flooded With Millions in Donations in Wake of Floyd Death By Shane Goldmacher https //www nytimes com/2020/06/14/us/politics/black-lives-matter-racism-donations.html Excerpt: [The George Floyd event spurred] …a record-setting flood of donations to racial justice groups, bail funds and black-led advocacy organizations across America, remaking the financial landscape of black political activism in a matter of weeks. Money has come in so fast and so unexpectedly that some groups even began to turn away and redirect donors elsewhere. Others said they still could not yet account for how much had arrived. A deluge of online donations has washed over organizations big and small — from legacy civil rights groups to self-declared abolitionists seeking to defund the police… Bail Funds:  At the forefront of the giving wave were bail funds, as millions of Americans spontaneously gave money to ensure that any protesters who were arrested in clashes with the police got out of jail quickly. Leaders of two national networks said bail funds had received a combined $90 million over two weeks — an astonishingly large sum for a cause that had operated at the periphery of politics only recently. Groups receiving funding or mentioned for their support of BLM, etc: in article Glynda C. Carr, the president of Higher Heights,  group saw a spike of 15,000 donations in two weeks — about 10 times more than usual ActBlue, the leading site to process online donations for Democratic causes and campaigns, has experienced its busiest period since its founding in 2004…The site’s four biggest days ever came consecutively this month as it processed more than $250 million to various progressive causes and candidates in two-plus weeks, according to a New York Times analysis of the site’s donation ticker…Blackout Tuesday, ActBlue doubled what had been, before this month, its one-day record: raising $41 million in 24 hours.
