Soros-funded organization has 666 address

“Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” -Rev. 13:18

That's George Soros in the chair on the right. Soros hosted Obama's first presidential campaign fund-raising soiree.

That’s George Soros in the chair on the right. Soros hosted Obama’s first presidential campaign fund-raising soiree.


One of the leftwing groups that international currency speculator George Soros funds is the noble-sounding Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR).
According to the website NGO Monitor, George Soros is a major donor to CCR:

CCR’s net assets (2006) exceeded $5 million, 77% from endowments, foundations and individual gifts. These donations include large donations from the Ford Foundation, and George Soros’ Open Society Institute. Over 1,050 other foundations and individuals have donated to CCR.

Founded in 1966 “by attorneys who represented civil rights movements in the South,” CCR describes itself as “a non-profit legal and educational organization” dedicated to “advancing and protecting the rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”
CCR’s real mission, however, is revealed after the verbiage about the Constitution — “committed to the creative use of law as a positive force for social change.”
But if CCR is honest, its mission statement instead should read “committed to the PERVERSE use of law as a DESTRUCTIVE force for social change.” As evidence, let’s look at the groups and movements supported by and to which CCR is linked. Those groups include:

1. The criminal syndicate ACORN or Association and Community Organizations for Reform Now , a private network of “community organizing” groups funded by taxpayers whose criminal activities included voter registration fraud and home loans for illegal aliens. A July 2009 congressional report, “Is ACORN Intentionally Structured As a Criminal Enterprise?,” accused ACORN of massive fraud, money laundering, and racketeering directed from the highest levels of the organization’s management. On September 17, 2009, Congress passed the “Defund ACORN Act,” resulting in the disbanding of ACORN groups across the U.S. and the reconstitution of some of the same groups under different names. (See my post of Feb. 24, 2010, “ACORN, the Undead“.) Given the fact the ACORN supposedly no longer exists, at least under the ACORN name, it is noteworthy that the Soros-funded Center for Constitutional Rights still lists ACORN among the groups and movements CCR supports.

2. The Hyde – 30 Years is Enough! Campaign: “a national network of grassroots groups working to repeal the Hyde Amendment and, in doing so, restore full public funding of abortion as part of a comprehensive health care for all,” i.e., as part of Obamacare.
3. New Sanctuary Movement: “a coalition of interfaith religious leaders and participating congregations” that provide sanctuary to illegal migrants, i.e., protection to criminals.
4. The Audre Lorde Project: “a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two Spirit [what’s dat?], Trans and Gender Non Conforming People of Color center for community organizing, focusing on the New York City area.”
Writing in Freedom Outpost, Matt Barber tells us the latest project of CCR is the persecution of pastor Scott Lively of Abiding Truth Ministries:

Scott LivelyBecause Lively exercised his God-given First Amendment rights, as well as his free-speech rights afforded by the laws of Uganda, and spoke biblical truth about homosexual sin after having been invited there by a number of Ugandan pro-family groups, homosexual activists set out to make an example of him.
In March of 2012 CCR sued Lively in a Massachusetts federal court for “crimes against humanity” – the same charge filed against Nazis who stood trial in Nuremberg – on behalf of another moonbat organization called “Sexual Minorities Uganda,” which, and again, you can’t make this stuff up, prefers the moniker “SMUG.” […]
Lively is being tried for “crimes against humanity” for merely uttering, publicly, millennia-old biblical orthodoxy relative to sexual morality.

So how could such an Orwellian lawsuit – clearly designed as a weapon to both harass and intimidate Lively and anyone else who might dare challenge the global homosexual activist political agenda – even make its way into a U. S. federal court? […]
Michael PonsorMeet federal Judge Michael Ponsor […] the textbook example of a judicial activist. He has admitted as much, once saying in another context that, “At some point I realized that judges are the unappointed legislators of mankind, and what we do is just as creative.” […]
SMUG’s and CCR’s end game is clear: Make war criminals out of anyone who encourages any legislative body to pass any legislation upholding the traditional family. If Scott Lively is guilty of the Crime Against Humanity of Persecution, then so are the Houston pastors and anyone who has ever tried to influence legislation against the homosexual juggernaut. There is no limiting principle,” concluded Harry Mihet, Pastor Lively’s lead attorney. […]
This was never about winning or losing.
It was always about intimidation.

(See also DCG’s post, “City of Houston subpoenas pastors’ sermons in equal rights ordinance case”.)
Guess what the Center for Constitutional Rights’ address is.

From CCR’s “Contact” page:

The Center for Constitutional Rights is located at:
666 Broadway
7th Floor
New York, NY 10012

SOROS-BACKED EVANGELICAL FRONT GROUP PRAYS FOR RUSHED PASSAGE OF GANG OF 8 BILL

by MICHAEL PATRICK LEAHY 23 Jun 2013

Representatives of the Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT), a group whose recent $250,000 ad campaign was reportedly paid for by the George Soros funded National Immigration Forum, have announced that they will be praying near the steps of the Capitol for the immediate passage of the Gang of Eight immigration bill when the Senate votes on the Corker Amendment on Monday.

wolf003

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” –Matthew 7:15 ESV

On Friday the Christian Post reported that the EIT “is planning a number of events bringing attention to immigration reform to coincide with next week’s vote in the U.S. Senate for an immigration reform bill.” The Post reported that starting on Monday, June 24, and continuing until Friday, June 28, “[a]t 10 a.m. . . evangelical leaders will gather at Peace Circle near the U.S. Senate to pray that the senators will ‘ transcend partisanship and vote for commonsense immigration solutions that include an achievable roadmap to citizenship,’ according to a press release.”

The Lucifer Alliance: Secret group of powerful leftwing moneybags

Did you know that in 2012, the State of California “contributed” more than any other state to President Lucifer’s reelection campaign? And most of California’s campaign contributions came from the Los Angeles-Long Beach metro area (think Hollywood), second only to Washington, D.C. and New York City.

Playing an important role in California’s campaign contributions to the POS is a secret, invitation-only group of leftist moneybags who call themselves the Democracy Alliance, which funneled some $100 million into the 2012 election.

Given the group’s leftwing ideological proclivities — pro-Obama, amnesty for illegals, gun control, climate change, abortion, gay “rights” — it should more appropriately be called the Lucifer Alliance. And that’s how I’ll refer to the group in this essay.

Although the Democracy Lucifer Alliance discloses neither its members nor its beneficiaries, information has leaked out over time. Three of its members are very well known. They are:

  1. The old goat, George Soros: billionaire international currency speculator and backer of President Lucifer. On April 9, 2007, Soros held a fund-raiser for Obama where this picture was taken:

Soros fundraiser

2. Chris Hughes: The 29-year-old co-founder of Facebook.

Chris_Hughes

3. Peter Lewis, chairman of Progressive Insurance (which is why you should not buy your auto insurance from Progressive!):

In early May of this year, the group held a 5-day semi-annual conference in a luxury ocean-front resort in Laguna Beach, Calif., to which the Los Angeles Times was granted exclusive access.

Matea Gold reports for the L.A. Times, May 4, 2013, that the Democracy  Lucifer Alliance is an influential network of some of America’s wealthiest “liberal” political donors. Comprised of roughly 100 members who pay annual dues of $30,000, the Alliance itself does not make donations. Instead it requires its members to contribute at least $200,000 a year to organizations in the Alliance’s portfolio.

The group intentionally has a low profile and  “carries significant sway on the left,” with deep-pocketed members like Soros, Hughes, and Lewis. Rob McKay, a San Francisco-based philanthropist is the Lucifer Alliance’s chairman.

Since its founding by strategist Rob Stein in 2005, the Democracy Lucifer Alliance has contributed some $500 million toward “progressive” leftwing candidates and causes, including the “liberal” think tank Center for American Progress; Media Matters for America, which aims to debunk conservative claims; and Catalist, which maintains a voter database used to help campaigns target potential supporters.

At the Laguna Beach conference, the group selected the pro-Obama Organizing for Action (OFA) and immigration reform groups such as the National Immigration Forum as some of its top 2013 funding priorities.

OFA is a nonprofit group formed by the POS’s top political aides that has been pressing for Congress to pass a universal background check for gun buyers, among other issues. The Democracy Lucifer Alliance has brought in about $5 million for OFA in the first quarter of 2013, with a goal to raise a total of $50 million by year’s end.

The Laguna Beach conference drew more than 150 donors and activists for sessions on topics such as the economy, gun control and climate change. Among the activists pitching to the donors was OFA executive director Jon Carson. Speakers at the conference included California Gov. Jerry Brown, California Lt. Gov. and former San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom, and Robert Reich, Secretary of Labor in the Clinton Administration.

By the end of the conference, members had pledged to distribute $50 million this year to an array of groups on the left, a sum leaders said was particularly impressive in light of last year’s costly election campaign.

Stay tuned for Part II of “The Lucifer Alliance,” on the names and identities of 38 less-famous but equally pernicious members of the Alliance!

Groups & individuals targeted by Obama's IRS witchhunt

Eye of Obama
The mission of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is to collect taxes from individuals and groups, but to do so fairly by applying the the tax law with integrity and without prejudice. According to IRS Policy Statement 1-1, IRS employees accomplish this mission by being impartial and handling tax matters in a manner that will promote public confidence.
It is not the mission of the IRS to use political criteria to target certain individuals and groups for special scrutiny or audit.
On May 10, 2013, Americans learned that, instead of being apolitical, the Obama regime’s IRS had singled out for special scrutiny the tax documents of some 75 groups who, for the lack of a better term, are not fans of President Lucifer.

That day, the IRS issued an apology to conservative political groups — groups with names that had words like “tea party” and “patriot” — for having been subjected to extra scrutiny. But the IRS insisted that “Mistakes were made initially, but they were in no way due to any political or partisan rationale.”

Since last Friday, each new day brings more information of the IRS’s misdeeds. They include the following:

  • The IRS witch hunt began in April 2010, with the formation of a team of specialists within the IRS called the Determination Unit. (Source: ZeroHedge)
  • High-level Obama regime officials were involved. (Source: ZeroHedge)
  • By June 2011, the IRS expanded its criteria for extra scrutiny beyond “Tea Party,” “patriot,” and “9/12 Project” (referring to a group started by Glenn Beck) groups to include also organizations critical of government spending, government debt, taxes, and “how the country is run,” as well as groups seeking to “make America a better place to live” and to educate Americans about the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. (Source: FoxNews)
  • The IRS also targeted a pro-life group, Cherish Life Ministries, that provides help to a coalition of churches that supports mothers struggling with unexpected pregnancies, promotes abstinence and advocates for an end to abortion. (Source: WND) H/t FOTM’s joworth
  • The IRS was targeting the Jews, too! An IRS agent told the pro-Israel Jewish organization Z Street that the applications of Israel-related organizations were assigned to “a special unit in the D.C. office to determine whether the organization’s activities contradict the Obama’s Administration’s public policies.” (Source: Atlas Shrugs)
  • Even worse, the IRS went beyond using political criteria to single out certain groups for extra scrutiny. The IRS violated confidentiality by giving the confidential applications for tax-exempt status of nine conservative groups to a George Soros-funded journalism group, ProPublica. (Source: Breitbart)
  • The IRS also leaked the 2008 confidential financial documents of the National Organization for Marriage, a pro-traditional marriage organization, to the leftwing Human Rights Campaign (HRC). Those documents were published on the Huffington Post on March 30, 2012. Joe Solmonese, HRC’s president and a co-chairman of Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign, then used the leaked document to attack GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. (Source: Breitbart) H/t FOTM reader Kathleen Myers.

  • Wayne Allyn Root — the Libertarian Party’s 2008 VP candidate who attended Columbia University in the same years as Pres. Lucifer but has publicly stated he’d never met his supposed fellow-student nor does he know any Columbia alumnus who had — was also a target of the IRS’s unusual audits, beginning in January 2011, despite a “spotless” 30-year tax record. Root believes the order to audit him came from Obama himself: “I believe this is not rogue agents, who would be risking their pension and careers.” (Source: WND)
  • Televangelist Billy Graham endorsed Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election. Now his son, Franklin Graham, has come forth with the revelation that in the midst of the heated presidential campaign in September 2012, the IRS notified the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the family’s international humanitarian organization Samaritan’s Purse, that it was conducting a “review” of their activities for tax year 2010. (Source: Politico)
  • In 2010, the IRS targeted for auditing Dr. Anne Hendershott, a devout Catholic professor and author whose writings are critical of Obama and Soros-funded “liberal” Catholic groups. The IRS demanded to know who was paying her and “what their politics were.” Although Hendershott and her husband (who brings in the vast majority of the family’s income) file joint tax returns, only she was audited. The audit was so emotionally and financially expensive that she was frightened into silence. (Source: The Blaze)
  • Dr. James Dobson says his Christian FamilyTalk group was also targeted. The IRS threatened the group’s non-profit status because it didn’t represent “all views.” (Source: WND)
  • The Catholic League was notified, just weeks after Obama was elected president in 2008, by the IRS that it was under investigation for violating the IRS Code on political activities as it relates to 501(c)(3) organizations. It was the George Soros-funded leftwing United that contacted the IRS to launch its investigation of the Catholic League. (Source: America Conservative 2 Conservative)
  • A 180-year-old Baptist newspaper, The Biblical Recorder, was targeted by the IRS for extra scrutiny. In summer 2012, the paper gained national attention after it published an interview with Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy who said he supports traditional family values. The paper also published ads from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association — which also was targeted by the IRS. (Source: Fox News)

OWS is a Hard-Left Oikophobe Movement

“You will know them by their fruits.” -Matthew 7:15


Former Congressman Tom Tancredo sounds the warning on his blog that the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement not only is a hard left-wing movement, it has turned violent and therfore has become a “homeland security issue”.
As proof of OWS’s hard left character, let’s look at who its supporters are, beginning with the regime in North Korea, the last redoubt of diehard communism in the world today.
On October 18, 2011, the government of psychopath “Dear Leader” Kim Jong Il released a statement praising OWS for facilitating “the working masses’ struggle against capitalism”:

“The Occupy Wall St[reet] movement was an eruption of the exploited classes’ pent-up wrath at the exploiters. It was also an expression of the will to remove the stronghold of capitalism as a whole which brings only exploitation, oppression, unemployment and poverty to the popular masses … [in a] corrupt society where the rich get ever richer and the poor get ever poorer.”

Then there are these left-wing activist organizations and labor unions in the United States which support OWS (from Discover the Networks):

North Korea and the groups above would have us believe that OWS is a struggle by “the working masses” and the “exploited classes.” You mean such as the “exploited” “working class” individuals below? (Most of the following names are from Discover the Networks; some are from my post “Who Are the Top 1%?“. Most of the estimated net worth figures are from Celebrity Net Worth):

These individuals are no more “working class” folk than I am. Unlike me, however, most of the people above have net worths that make them members of the “top 1%” — the supposed target of the Occupy Wall Street movement. And yet, they vocally support the “we are the 99%” OWS movement.
As Bill Whittle explains in his video, they are oikophobes — the products of an affluent America (see “OWS is Occupy Envy“), who hate America and Americans. Is it any wonder that the OWS movement — the product of a psychological and spiritual pathology — has become a pathological stew of internecine squabbling, rat and lice infestation, public defecation, rapetheft, robbery, smearing urine and blood on a food-vendor’s cart, andphysical assault on the elderly?
“By their actions, you will know them.” -Matthew 7:15

Is Soros Buying Up Guns in the U.S.?

There’s an alarming e-mail circulating which claims:

For the last several years a company called  The Freedom Group has been buying up gun and ammunition manufacturers.Some of the companies are Bushmaster, Marlin, Remington,DPMS, Dakota Arms and H&R.

 Some people worry that this Freedom Group is going to control most of the firearms companies in the United States. If you control the manufacturers you can decide to stop selling to civilians. What a perfect way to control guns.

Now if you do some digging you will see that The Freedom Group is owned by a company called Cerberus Capital Management. Guess who controls Cerberus???

GEORGE SOROS !!!!!!!!! One of the most evil men on this planet who wants to restrict or ban all civilian guns.

[Source: https://bulletin.accurateshooter.com/…arnes-bullets/]

That e-mail is not true.

The following is from the National Rifle Association website:

Internet Rumors About Cerberus, Freedom Group Are Patently False

Friday, October 14, 2011

Recently, an old rumor regarding Cerberus–the private equity firm that owns Freedom group, a holding company that in turn owns a number of firearms manufacturers, including Remington, Marlin, Bushmaster, and DPMS–was in some way tied to George Soros.

This rumor is completely false and baseless.

NRA has had contact with officials from Cerberus and Freedom Group for some time.  The owners and investors involved are strong supporters of the Second Amendment and are avid hunters and shooters.

In reality, at no time has George Soros ever been a part of the ownership group of Freedom Group or Cerberus, and as a privately traded corporation, there is no possibility that he will be in the future.

This unsubstantiated rumor has caused a great deal of unnecessary concern for gun owners. NRA-ILA urges our members to take great care before repeating baseless rumors found on the Internet.

61% in FoxNews Poll Agree With "Occupy Wall Street"

The waking-up news this morning is that the Occupy Wall Street movement, now entering its 4th week, has spread to cities across the United States and across the world.
The usual (left-wing) suspects of unions (SEIU, teachers, writers) and multibillionaire George Soros’ MoveOn.org are participating in it. [Go here for the list of some of the participants.]
Multimillionaire hypocrite Nancy Pelosi called the TEA Party “neo-Nazi” “racists” and an “astroturf” (fake) movement. But she approves of the Occupy movement, telling ABCNews yesterday, “I support the message to the establishment, whether it’s Wall Street or the political establishment approve of it.”
Commie actor Danny Glover called for more “warriors” to join Occupy L.A.:
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0pCASt7b_I&feature=player_embedded]
But if we go by the results of an unscientific FoxNews poll, a majority of Americans say they share the views of the Occupy movement.
The poll asks you to choose among 4 responses:

  • Maybe. I am not even sure what they want.
  • No. They have no idea how jobs are created or how a free enterprise system works.
  • Yes. These folks are right about corporate greed and what’s happening to the little guy.
  • Other (post a comment).

When I voted at 3:30am, west coast time, Monday, Oct. 10, 2011, these were the results:

Of a total of 132,136 votes:

  • Maybe 2.77%
  • No 35.46%
  • Yes 60.95%
  • Other 0.82%

Don’t let the Occupy movement speak for you. CLICK HERE to vote in the poll!

True Love?


This is a photo of 85-year-old María and her 25-years-younger groom, Alfonso, on their wedding day yesterday.
Only a few dozen family members and close friends were invited to the ceremony because, sadly, the bride’s six children from her first marriage, reportedly balked when the idea of marriage first emerged.
But the course of true love will not be thwarted!
In July of this year, María gave her grown children and grandchildren some of her estate to appease them and clear her way to the altar. Poor María bemoaned, “I have been alone in this project, and got nothing but negative opinions until they realized what kind of man he is.”
Despite María’s generosity, two of her children did not attend the wedding — an only daughter, Eugenia, who reportedly was hospitalized with chicken pox; and a son, Jacobo, who reportedly is unhappy with his slice of the family estate. But you needn’t feel too sorry for Jacobo because the pieces of estate that the children and grandchildren got are mansions and palaces.
You see, María is no ordinary octogenarian. She is none other than the Spanish Duchess of Alba. That’s only one of her more than 40 titles. According to Guinness World Records, she has more titles recognized by an existing government than any other noble in the world.
Her full name – take a deep breath – is Maria del Rosario Cayetana Alfonsa Victoria Eugenia Francisca Fitz-James Stuart y de Silva. She goes by simply Cayetana, and is a distant relative of Queen Elizabeth and Winston Churchill.
Estimates of her wealth range from euro600 million ($800 million) to euro3.5 billion ($4.7 billion). Besides fabulous and historic real estate sprinkled around Spain, the family treasure boasts paintings by Goya and Velazquez, a first-edition copy of Cervantes “El Quixote”, and letters written by Christopher Columbus.
Doña María del Rosario Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart y Silva is the 18th Duchess of Alba de Tormes and the current head of the House of Alba — only the third woman to carry the title in her own right. The Duchess is a descendant of King James VII of Scotland, II of England, through his illegitimate son James Fitz-James, Duke of Berwick (1670–1734), born of a relationship with Arabella Churchill, only sister of the Duke of Marlborough — which makes the Duchess of Alba a distant relative of both Sir Winston Churchill and Diana, Princess of Wales, descendants of Arabella’s daughter Henrietta FitzJames.
The House of Alba is an important Spanish aristocratic family who derive from the 12th century Mozarab nobility of post-conquest Toledo. Some Mozarabs were Converso Sephardi Jews. “Converso” refers to Jews or descendants of Jews who converted to Catholicism in Spain or Portugal, particularly during the 14th and 15th centuries when mass conversions took place under great governmental pressure.
For her wedding, the twice-widowed duchess wore a salmon, shin-length dress by Spanish designers Victorio y Lucchino. In fact, little Maria was on Vanity Fair‘s International Best-Dressed List in 2009.
She must also have undergone extensive plastic surgery for her new love, as you can see by comparing her pic from her wedding with one from 2009:

The Duchess of Alba in late 2009 (from Wikipedia)


The Duchess’ 3rd wedding was in Palacio de las Duenas, her 15th-century residence in the cobblestoned old quarter of Seville.
The happy groom is Alfonso Diez, a civil servant with the social security administration in Madrid, whose salary was euro1,500 ($2,000) a month. Alfonso and Maria are old acquaintances through her second husband, who was a former Jesuit priest, and Diez’s brother, an antiques dealer. The love birds bumped into each other about three years ago outside a movie theater in Madrid and eventually started dating.
Diez will be entering a new world, although he has reportedly signed a document renouncing any claim to the House of Alba wealth. Now he will live in splendor as a duke, reportedly with plans to take a leave of absence from his day job, although the noble title will pass on to the duchess’s eldest son, Carlos, when she dies.
An idle thought:

I wonder why the “Occupy Wall Street” commies don’t/won’t demonstrate against the global super-super-super rich like the Duchess of Alba, George Soros, and the satanic Baroness Philippine de Rothschild?

Soros Sued by 28-Year-Old Lover for Assault & Battery


Finally, we have a tiny sliver of good news to report!
81-year-old George Soros — international financier, currency speculator, destroyer of the economies of entire nations, supporter of Obama and leftwing causes — is being sued by his ex-lover who is young enough to be his grand-daughter.
Tom Leonard and Daniel Bates report for the UK’s Daily Mail, August 12, 2011, that the man who reportedly made millions during the 1992 UK  currency crises, is being sued for more than $51 million (£31million) for slapping and choking his 28-year-old ex-girlfriend, Brazilian soap star Adriana Ferreyr.

Arm in arm: The couple in happier times, before the split and bitter money battle

Soros & Ferreyr in happier times

Ferreyr claims Soros slapped her in the face and attempted to choke her as they argued over property in bed together. She says the two had a relationship for five years before he dumped her last year.
But, according to a lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, there was a brief reconciliation in August last year in which the couple spent a night together at Soros’s home in New York’s Upper East Side. It was there that Soros, who has an estimated fortune of $14.7 billion (£8.9billion), “bluntly” told her that he had given to another woman the $2 million apartment on the 7th floor of a luxury high-rise in New York which he had promised to Ferreyr.
In the inevitable row that followed, the lawsuit claims that “Mr Soros slapped Miss Ferreyr across the face and proceeded to put his hands around her neck in an attempt to choke her.” Ferreyr says she managed to evade him and picked up a glass lamp to protect herself. Soros then allegedly grabbed the lamp and tried to hit her with it, narrowly missing. She claims she ran into the office next to Soros’s bedroom and called police.
Ferreyr claims the confrontation traumatised her to the point she was “unable to function in her day-to-day life” and has since had to have treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder.
Soros strongly denies the allegations. His lawyer, William Zabel, while admitting that his client did have an “on and off” relationship with Ferreyr, called the suit “frivolous and entirely without merit…riddled with false charges and is obviously an attempt to extract money from my client, who is known to be a very rich man. The police investigated the incident referred to and concluded that no assault occurred. George Soros did not slap, choke or throw a lamp at her.’
George Soros’s private life is rarely touched on in the U.S.. Married and twice divorced, he has five children. In the past few years, Soros’s reported girlfriends have included the violinist Jennifer Chun and former Miss Russia Anna Malova.
All I can say is I hope the Brazilian hot pepper wins!
H/t beloved fellow Tina.
