  George Soros, the billionaire who earned fame by betting against the British pound in 1992, contributed 400,000 pounds ($554,840) through his foundations to a campaign group which is seeking to halt Brexit, the group's chairman said on Wednesday.

"George Soros’s foundations have along with a number of other major donors also made significant contributions to our work," Mark Malloch-Brown, a former British diplomat who is chair of the Best for Britain campaign group.

That sack of crap made his fortune by buying politicians to intentionally crash Countries economies.
Anything he is for, I'm against.  ::angry::

I can't figure out why he hasn't been assassinated yet. Seems like a no-brainer to me, that an awful lot of rich powerful people with the means to do so should've snuffed this asshole a long time ago.

To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

I've wondered that too, for him and his minions.

Nobody with means on our side, apparently.  Good to know, huh?

Conservatives don't assassinate people.
Every assassination I can think of, either successful or an attempt, has been perpetrated by a liberal.

I'm not even speaking specifically of a conservative seeking vengeance. There are entire nation states that have reason to see him dead. And a whole lot of rich powerful people regardless of ideology whose financial empires have been leeched by Soros predation. I'm just surprised he hasn't faced the consequences yet.

Hungary has moved against him, legally.  Other countries need to follow suit.

Soros funds many NGOs that act politically within those countries. The MSM usually reports on restrictions against Soros in terms sympathetic to Soros.

As I understand it,  he made the bulk of his fortune in currency speculation.  Perhaps the most widely known and highly criticized was his almost single handedly collapsing of the Thai baht,  quite a few years ago. 
Never been adequately explained how exactly he did it,  but I imagine it would be quite similar to the "pump and dump" scam practiced by equities traders some time back--buy up a particular stock,  "pump" it up in the market chatter,  then "dump" it for huge profits. 
Only difference is in the currency markets,  you have to have huge amounts of cash (multiplied by leverage) to make the price move,  and currencies respond more to fundamentals than chatter.   So,  a "big boy" trader buys lots and lots of contracts,  small time speculators see this and start buying (strong demand,  a fundamental),  and it's like a snowball effect,  driving up the currency's "price" artificially.  Then the big boy dumps (sells),  crashes the market,  and makes a killing.  That's the only thing I've been able to figure how it's done. 
In Thailand's case,  I don't know if they've yet fully recovered from the damage Soros did to them economically. 

So the Dems and libs and progs get all butthurt when Trump calls out sh!thole countries,  but they've got no problems with their overlord and chief financier making a fairly stable country into one.    Go figure.

Food for thought...perhaps that is part of the larger failing of not waging Total War.

In this particular case, I'm inclined to agree with that.

I would bet that most "Special Operators" (Navy Seals, Army Rangers and Delta Force, etc) are very conservative.  Are they not the ones sent in on these types of "Special Missions"?

Yup.

And sometimes who the State says is evil and deserving of immediate dispatch isn't in harmony with reality.
