Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, September 20, 2016

Billionaire investor and philanthropist George Soros responded today to U.S. President Barack Obama's call for private sector investment to end the refugee crisis, offering a pledge to spend $500 million in aid of refugees. Soros plans to collaborate with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the International Rescue Committee to find the best possible way to help the millions of refugees seeking aid. The civil war in Syria has created one of the largest exoduses in human history, with 4.8 million refugees displaced.

DNC donors = usually trying to be philanthropic

RNC donors = usually trying to suppress your wages and steal your retirement

So I hear Trump is going to offer $500 million of Soros' money to help refugees and then accept an award for his generosity.

He's already told you what he's doing with them - keeping them the f--- out of our country, which is the right call.

Unless Soros is going to relocate a bunch of refugees to his palatial estate and build them homes there, then screw him and his "philanthropy". It's means nothing to throw his millions at the problem and expect everyone else to do the actual heavy lifting.

Yes, and that's all he'll do other than watch them die in their own countries. Because we're Christian damn it!

#10 who has been in a refugee status longer?

The Syrians
Or
The Palestinians

Who is helping the Palestinians?

The Syrians issue is nothing more than a relocation of indigenous people to support the installation and protection of a corporate owned pipeline.

Obviously, he is trying to throw the election, unlike Putin, Adelson, and the Koch brothers.

Good thing do not spring from a poisoned well. If Soros is doing anything it follows that he will not depart from his central axiom, Profit from chaos. He has used discord to advance himself.

Soros sponsored and released a whitepaper a few years ago regarding how humanitarian refugee crises affect financial commodity markets.

More recently, he's been doing interviews with anyone who will listen about the refugee issue, how it will affect markets, and how he is poised to profit in "what will be the trade of my lifetime."

It is sad to see this website promote news of the nazi-sympathizer Soros donating money to make money off of the refugee crisis, whereas the news of 50 American businesses contributing $600 million to assist in alleviating the humanitarian crisis does not garner any type of coverage.

Priorities.
