Just Clueless or Treason? Why Obama Ignores Top Generals Advice So Often! (VIDEOS)

Fotor01016224251Ct Patriot: I really feel bad for the dead horse, but here we go again. Let us cut right to the chase here. Is President Obama just clueless when it comes to anything involving the military? Is he just such a pathological narcissist that he must always be right even when blatantly wrong? Does he just have such a love for Islam that his decisions are biased?

Well strap yourselves in kids because we all know its more than just those things. Some are still in Obama zombie denial but those folks are way beyond helping at this point. We know all too well if we are intellectually honest that we have a “Manchurian Candidate” living in the White house for the last 7 yrs.

thCAV5B8D3A man who deeply despises America and traditional American values. A man who has an army of fellow travelers who also Hate the United States with a passion. A man who is vehemently anti-Christian, and extremely pro Islam. It is obvious what side this man is on.

So of course Obama the dictator won’t listen to his top Generals, those left after his massive purge of anyone who refused to fire on US citizens if so ordered. Or anyone who balked at the idea of gun confiscation here in America. Gone, Bye See ya!  Obama has also went out of his way to defund our military and reduce our very ability to even counter attack if needed. Yet this Insane leader of ours proceeds to start conflicts all over the world anyplace he can with his dopey buddies in NATO. Russia Anyone?

thCARV5K8FThis fraud, this deceiver, this enemy of the state was chosen for one very big objective. Yes chosen, and no not by your votes. This Marxist Islamic Madman was sent to destroy the United States, to bring us down from within with plenty of help. So this just follows the pattern of killing America, step by step.

Not to make matters worse but we still have over a year of this tyrants reign of terror. That is if he actually leaves office if he allows an election in 2016. He has one more year, a final push to nail the coffin shut and bury America for good…

Obama Ignores Advice of Military Generals More Than Any Other US President

President moves in different direction than generals

bySputnik

October 17, 2015

President Obama’s decision to keep US troops in Afghanistan beyond his presidency angered many who were expecting a complete withdrawal.

thssssssBut Pentagon officials were also outraged, as the decision marked the sixth time the Obama administration ignored the advice of his own military experts.

Despite running on a campaign to end America’s wars abroad, President Obama announced earlier this month that the US would keep 5,500 troops in Afghanistan beyond 2016. Naturally, the announcement didn’t sit well with Obama’s base, but it also frustrated his critics.

“The security situation in Afghanistan is so far from stable that to pull out all the troops, even for this president, doesn’t make any sense,” retired Army Gen. John Keane, who regularly advises the US Congress on security matters, told the Washington Times.

And this isn’t the first time Obama has risked national security by ignoring the advice of his generals.

“Quite unprecedented, this is the sixth time President Obama has not listened to a field commander recommendation on force levels for troops in combat,” Keane added.

Obama vs. the generals

September 15, 2014

OBAMA-REMOVE-MILITARY-WHO-WONT-SHOOT-ON-AMERICANSPity poor Gen. Lloyd Austin, top commander of U.S. forces in the Middle East.

Rarely has a U.S. general given his commander in chief better military advice, only to see it repeatedly rejected.

In 2010, Gen. Austin advised President Obama against withdrawing all U.S. forces from Iraq, recommending that the president instead leave 24,000 U.S. troops (down from 45,000) to secure the military gains made in the surge and prevent a terrorist resurgence. Had Obama listened to Austin’s counsel, the rise of the Islamic State could have been stopped.

But Obama rejected Austin’s advice and enthusiastically withdrew all U.S. all forces from the country, boasting that he was finally bringing an end to “the long war in Iraq.”

Now the “long war in Iraq” is back. And because Obama has not learned from his past mistakes, it is likely to get even longer.

Obama’s Attempt to Disarm and Disable the US Military

thwwwMontgomery Granger is a retired, three times mobilized U.S. Army Reserve major, and author of Saving Grace at Guantanamo Bay: A Memoir of a Citizen Warrior

Barack Hussein Obama seeks to use the teachings of ancient Chinese military genius Sun Tzu, as described in his famous quote: “One hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the most skillful, subduing the enemy’s military without battle is the most skillful.”

The question is: Are we going to let him?

Recently, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel announced that he is proposing huge cutbacks in the military, especially with regard to Army personnel . The set-up for this fall included prematurely withdrawing from Iraq and announcing that all U.S. combat operations in Afghanistan would end by December 2014.

2416.5172-220We still have troops in Germany, Japan and Italy over 68 years after the end of World War II, although Obama removed the last of our Abrams M1-A2 main battle tanks from Germany last spring. The effect of removing troops from Afghanistan would be a reduction in our capability to project our power and influence in defense of our country and our best interests in the Middle East. That is a void none of our friends or allies will fill, and the vacuum created by our withdrawal will collect only those who can and will do us harm.

The most recent proposed cuts announced by Hagel amount to a gutting of an operational force to a level that would take at least a decade to rebuild, if that. I say “if that,” because the proposed cuts to future soldier benefits will help discourage the best and brightest from giving a damn about joining. If they survive their tour they might have to end up living on food stamps, like thousands of Army privates with families do today, or, if they don’t survive, their families and spouses will have crumbs to live on from reduced death benefits.

Obama’s Racist War Of Hate On White People! Thugs Kill The Cops First Then You…(VIDEOS)

Fotor01016224251Ct Patriot: Do you finally see the hatred Barack Obama, his wife his associates Eric Holder, Al Sharpton and the rest of the racists. Yes, Black people can be racist! I am so sick of the “only white people” can be racist nonsense. This President has a very obvious hatred of white people, especially white christian males, even Stevie Wonder can see this fact. Its Ingrained in his very being, from his Marxist-Socialist religion to his other religion of Islam or from his years of listening to Jeremiah Wrights hate filled sermons. Who know’s he might have been jilted by a white male lover back in the day and still has his panties in a bunch about it. who knows for sure the mind of a psychopath?  And honestly who really cares why he thinks this way, the fact is he does. The Dictator has no clothes…

So now that we as a nation can fully see the insanity that is inside the mind of the President. Makes Nixon look not so crazy now compared to this anti-american insanity we are seeing on everyday, It would take far too long to detail all of the acts by Barack Obama against the american people. But anyone of you who is still reading this has a long list of his treasonous acts and acts of sedition themselves I am sure.

download (6)Let us for a moment ask ourselves why the Police? why has he decided the police are to be the catalyst? Hmmm, Maybe not just to start his precious Race-Civil War. Any good dictator needs a war, just ask Lincoln about that. But the cops are the first line of defense on the street and in our neighborhoods. Get rid of them and who runs the streets? The gangs, the thugs, these very same animals we have seen rob, rape, burn and murder not only white people but mostly their own. Now let us say the police after Obama and his race pimps get enough of them killed that they just say “fuck it” and don’t try anymore. Can anyone say Baltimore? Baltimore is the beta test for the new civil war that Obama wants. And get this, this is the fun part. After we all kill and destroy each other, black, white, yellow, brown guess who arrives to save the day? The military, whom he has purged of patriots and replaced with fellow travelers and do not forget the secret treaties with the UN either to enforce martial law to restore “order”. Order from chaos theory. No elections maybe? No Constitution at all? No Bill of Rights? So all of us become 100% slaves,not the 75%percent we are now, well the ones who survive. Why are we falling for it? We have learned nothing since the first Civil War.

images (6)I am a white Christian male and though I am supposed to love my enemy, and I do try. I have had enough, No more cheeks to turn. Either the good people of this nation Stand together and say ENOUGH of this violent animalistic behavior we are lost. Only we can save ourselves now, help is not coming. Are we going to be politically corrected to literal Death? What happens when these gangs of thugs are outside your house? your neighborhood? Especially after we all sat by in silence while they got to freely execute the Police. Obama , Holder, Sharpton, Farakahn all have innocent blood on their hands, blood of these cops killed by their private army of thugs. Do we also sit with more blood on our hands?

“Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them”

(Ephesians 5:11).

And if a soul sin, and hear the voice of swearing, and is a witness, whether he hath seen or known of it; if he do not utter it, then he shall bear his iniquity.

ALLEN WEST: OBAMA ‘ABJECTLY DESPISES’ WHITES

‘How long will it be before you people realize’

BOB UNRUH

01/14/2014

download (3)War hero and former Republican congressman Allen West is asking how long it will take for “you people” – white Americans – to realize that their president “abjectly despises” them.

In a commentary posted Tuesday on his website, West, who represented Florida in Congress after an extended career in the U.S. military, confronted the issue of racism.

Citing Obama Attorney General Eric Holder’s warning that schools must drop policies that “disproportionately punish minorities,” West asserted it’s not racist to punish blacks more when they are causing more trouble.

“I taught high school for one year in Deerfield Beach, Fla., and in the end, it was such an enjoyable experience breaking up fights daily, that I decided to return to the combat zone of Afghanistan,” West wrote. “Teachers are already disrespected and attacked, not feared. There were students at Deerfield Beach who steered clear of the lunchroom for fear of being picked on or engaged in a fight.”

images (2)West said the violence on campus “was perpetrated eight out of 10 times by black students, male and female, but it had nothing to do with racial disparity.”

“It had everything to do with a lack of discipline and control,” he wrote.

He said Obama’s and Holder’s advocacy for leniency for those who cause trouble essentially makes them racist.

“This is my clear and succinct message to white Americans. How long will it be before ‘you people’ realize you have elevated someone to the office of president who abjectly despises you – not to mention his henchman Holder. Combined they are the most vile and disgusting racists – not you,” he wrote.

Is Obama’s Race War Ramping Up?

imagesJust days after a radical group of blacks called for “lynching whites and killing cops,” a Sheriff’s Deputy in Texas was shot execution style at a gas station while in full uniform.

As the deputy was filling up his patrol car, a black male shot him in the back of the head and then three times in the back.

The shooting occurred late Friday evening in Northwest Harris County just outside of Houston.

According to Breitbart, a witness and friend of the deputy said he saw the man shoot his friend and speed off in a red pickup truck. He reportedly followed the truck for about two miles until he lost it at a major highway intersection.

The execution of the deputy came just days after black radicals went on an internet radio show hosted from Texas and called for the lynching of white people and the killing of cops to “turn the tide” against blacks being killed by cops.

One black man spoke up saying they needed to kill “cops that are killing us. The other black male on the show said, “That will be the best method right there.”

Despite efforts to transport the deputy to a hospital, he is believed to have been dead at the scene.

WHY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS SO DETERMINED TO START A RACE WAR

No other Administration in American history has manufactured so many crises and committed so many impeachable crimes as the current one

by MICHAEL THOMAS

INFOWARS.COM

DECEMBER 8, 2014

obamaracistNo other Administration in American history has manufactured so many crises and committed so many impeachable crimes as the current one.  The number of governmental wrongdoings and pervasiveness of political scandal are as unprecedented as they are unrivaled.

No other US President has acted in such an autocratic manner, and with such impunity.  President Obama’s ongoing dictatorial conduct has become so consistent that many refer to him as king, and the first monarch of the USA.  To those who have watched him systematically trash the Constitution, tyrant and despot are the more common descriptions.

The entire Executive Branch has become infamous for its predictable lawlessness and chaotic governance, deceptive pronouncements and diplomatic dissembling.  Every thing they do, or don’t do, is mired in political calculation and self-serving machinations.  Continuation of the facade of political correctness appears to be its central organizing principle, as well as the defining characteristic of so many incompetent ‘czars’ and unqualified politicos.

Just how numerous are the scandals and incessant are the improprieties … as well as the unparalleled transgressions against the Constitution and flagrant violations of federal law?  Here are just a few of the more serious offenses perpetrated by the Obama Administration:

•  Using the IRS to target Obama’s political enemies
•  Reckless and unlawful NSA spying on American citizens and foreign leaders
•  Repeatedly and illegally rewriting the Affordable Healthcare Act
•  Initiating undeclared wars in Libya and Syria
•  Prosecuting illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
•  Benghazi debacle and cover-up
•  Associated Press reporters’ phone records scandal
•  ATF “Fast and Furious” fiasco
•  HHS Secretary Sebelius solicits large donations from companies to save Obamacare
•  Pigford scandal
•  Immigration Enforcement – relentless subversion by DOJ
•  GSA Administrator resignation in the face of blatant waste of taxpayers’ money
•  Justice Department monitoring reporter James Rosen of FOX News
•  Cash for Clunkers fiasco
•  Solyndra and other solar company financial scandals
•  BP Gulf oil spill gross misrepresentation and mishandling
•  US Federal Government used to promote the LGBT agenda
•  Posting a fraudulent and forged copy of Obama birth certificate at WhiteHouse.gov
•  Obama’s birth place questioned according to his own Harvard Law Review entry
•  CIA Spying on the Senate
•  Disastrous rollout of Obamacare
•  Orchestrating a violent coup d’état in Kiev throwing the Ukraine into civil war
•  Issuing illegal executive orders to legislate new immigration law without Congressional approval
•  Appointing unqualified candidates to ambassadorships
•  Inflaming racial hatreds in Ferguson, MO and NYC, Sanford, FL and Boston
•  Race-bating whenever it serves the Administration’s narrow political goals
•  Continuous attempts to incite a full-blown national race war

download (2)The last three bullet points above clearly spell out a deliberate and premeditated strategy to divide the nation using manufactured racism.  That racially charged agenda has been implemented with a “nod and a wink” since the very inception of Obama’s first term.  In light of the growing list of serious scandals and unrivaled law-breaking by this Administration, it is clear why there is such a relentless push for a “full scale race war”.  Obama’s inner circle must feel that it has no choice but to distract the American people from the unrelenting corruption and ubiquitous malfeasance that must be kept hidden from the public.

When it’s not distracting the citizenry with transparent race-bating, the Obama Administration is diverting attention away from the very real class war that has been raging since the stock market crash of 2008.

RACE CARD USED AS RED HERRING TO DIVERT ATTENTION FROM ONGOING CLASS WARFARE

Clearly, there is a much more significant and profound reason for so much racial conflict purposefully generated by Obama, his political proxies and agents throughout the Mainstream Media (MSM).  Ever-intensifying class warfare has been raging across the nation since September of 2008.  The moneyed class has been under direct assault by those who have been harmed by the greatest transfer of wealth in modern history.

images (1)Whenever there are multiple economic and financial cataclysms as the world has experienced since 2008, there is also a simultaneous and massive redistribution of wealth.   Because of the blatantly lopsided rules of the game, the flow of wealth has been effectuated from the middle class to the wealthiest.  In this way the 1% now possesses an extremely disproportionate share of the world’s wealth relative to the 99%.

As inflation escalates and wages stagnate, the middle class (as well as lower socioeconomic groups) see their wealth persistently eroded.  After being stuck for several years in this recessionary and inflationary cycle, the financial pain is becoming too much for many to bear.  Working two or three jobs has taken its toll, especially for the primary wage earners.  Many have reached a breaking point and hold the political and corporate classes responsible for their economic difficulties and/or financial ruin.

Former Al-Qaeda Operative Claims Qaeda/ISIS Run By The CIA

Activist Post

More evidence has been entered into the files of public record that terrorist organizations such as al-Qaeda, ISIS, and the al-Nusra Front are completely controlled by the CIA and other Western intelligence agencies. 

In fact, according to Nabil Na’eem, founding member of the Islamic Democratic Jihad Party and a former commander of al-Qaeda, all current al-Qaeda affiliates are nothing more than offshoots of an overarching CIA terror operation. He also claimed that these groups will eventually be turned against Saudi Arabia, despite the fact that Saudi Arabia has acted as a bankroller and facilitator for them for years on end. 

 

Na’eem made his statements during the course of an interview with al-Maydeen , a Beirut-based news agency that serves a number of countries in the Middle East. The interview was translated by Arabi Souri of Syria News.

 
Na’eem first referenced the Project For A New American Century and the Bernard Lewis plan to break up the Middle East, re-establish national boundaries, and create a region made up of petty squabbling and weak “micro-states and mini-states” when he stated the following: 
Na’eem: Bernard Lewis founder of Fourth-Generation Warfare said so, he said: we do not need trans-continent armies that would awake nationalism and they return to us as bodies like what happened in Afghanistan & Vietnam, but we should find agents inside the (targeted) country who will carry out the task of the soldiers, and we need a media tool to falsify truths for the people, and money to spend on them. 

This is the Fourth-Generation Warfare, agents instead of soldiers. 

Interviewer: This is an alternative army, a war by proxy? 

Nabeel Naiem: Yes of course. 

Interviewer: Between who (this war)? We are talking about armies on the ground, Al Qaeda and all what branches out of it, these armies work for the account of which battle and between who? 

Nabeel Naiem: It works for the US Intelligence (CIA). 

Interviewer: Who it fights? 

Nabeel Naiem: The regimes, they put a plan in 1998 called Clean Break (PNAC)…

ISIS DOMESTIC TERROR THREAT CREATED BY CIA AND U.S. MILITARY

CIA facilitated 9/11 terrorist visa mill in Saudi Arabia

 JUNE 19, 2014

 

Eli Lake, writing for The Daily Beast, in other words Newsweek, warns that Americans fighting in Syria may soon return home and pose a serious terror threat.

“The problem, U.S. counter-terrorism and intelligence officials tell The Daily Beast, is that there are just so many jihadists with Western passports traveling to fight in Syria that they worry some of them may slip back into the United States without being detected,” Lake writes.

He then quotes Matthew Olsen, the director of the National Counter-Terrorism Center, who told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in March hundreds of terrorists have Western passports and they “could return to their home countries to commit violence on their own initiative or participate in al Qaeda-directed plots.”

CIA’s Saudi Visa Mill

Prior to the September 11, 2001, attack the CIA arranged passports and visas for veterans of its covert war in Afghanistan. This was confirmed by the former head of the American visa bureau in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Michael Springman, who told then BBC journalist Greg Palast in November, 2001, he “was repeatedly ordered by high level State Dept officials to issue visas to unqualified applicants” who were allowed to enter the United States.

 

 

Months before the September 11 attacks Shayna Steinger, a consular official, issued 12 visas to the alleged hijackers at the consulate in Jeddah. A State Department memo states Steinger issued 11 visas to the hijackers, but one additional visa was issued by a second consular officer.

(VIDEO) Rep. Ron Paul: Frightening That Rand Co. And Obama Want Total Korean War To Help Economy…

Ron Paul: Korea Conflict May Be Orchestrated Crisis To Boost Dollar

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
November 23, 2010

Congressman Ron Paul speculated on the Alex Jones Show today that the war footing between North and South Korea could be an orchestrated crisis to boost the dollar and reverse the US economy, paralleling the RAND Corporation’s call two years ago for the United States to become embroiled in a major war as a means of preventing a double dip recession.

South Korea admitted that it fired the first shots prompting a North Korean retaliation that killed two South Korean Marines and set ablaze many homes on the Yellow Sea border island of Yeonpyeong.

Tensions are running dangerously high after North Korea’s military vowed a “merciless military strike” and South Korean President Lee Myung-bak ordered his military to strike North Korea’s missile base around its coastline artillery positions if the North made any further moves. Japan announced that it was preparing for “any eventuality” while Russia said the events represented a “colossal danger” to peace in the region.

Stock markets sank worldwide while the dollar and gold bullion rallied in response to the news.

Speaking to the Alex Jones Show, Congressman Paul said it was frightening that people in the Obama administration were advocating war as a means of escaping the economic crisis, saying that North Korea stood no chance whatsoever of successfully defeating South Korea in any conflict.

Paul speculated that the US military-industrial complex was, “Doing it deliberately, and sort of orchestrating this in order to have the military-industrial complex benefit and the dollar temporarily benefit.”

As we highlighted two years ago when the story first broke, the RAND Corporation has been aggressively lobbying the Pentagon to become embroiled in a major new war to jump-start a recovery of the US economy and boost profits for the military-industrial complex after the scaling down of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Chinese media sources reported that RAND had presented a proposal to the Pentagon that revolved around fostering a conflict with a major foreign power in order to stimulate the American economy and prevent a double dip recession.

Although at the time RAND considered North Korea on its own to be too small a target, any full scale confrontation between the Koreas would embroil the United States on the side of the South and China on the side of the North. If North Korea were to tap its arsenal of nuclear weapons, the entire international community would quickly rubber stamp a US-led military assault on the rogue nation.

TheBlaze.Com
November 9, 2010
by Jonathon M. Seidl

Editor’s note: The following outline was obtained by The Blaze from Glenn Beck’s TV team. It is the background document they used to produce Tuesday night’s George Soros expose. It has been edited for form but not content:

BACKGROUND

“Messianic Fantasies”

* “It is sort of a disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out,” (The Independent, June 3, 1993)

* “I admit that I have always harbored an exaggerated view of self-importance –to put it bluntly, I fancied myself as some kind of god or an economic reformer like Keynes or, even better, a scientist like Einstein,” (The Alchemy of Finance, George Soros)

* According to friend Byron Wien (now with the Blackstone Group), “You must understand he thinks he’s been anointed by God to solve insoluble problems. The proof is that he has been so successful at making so much. He therefore thinks he has a responsibility to give money away,” (Time Magazine, Sept 1, 1997)

* “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood which I felt I had to control, otherwise I might end up in the loony bin. But when I made my way in the world I wanted to indulge myself in my fantasies to the extent that I could afford.”

George Soros 60 Minutes Interview – 12/20/98 / Transcript:

KROFT: Are you religious?
Mr. SOROS: No.
KROFT: Do you believe in God?
Mr. SOROS: No.
KROFT: (Voiceover) Soros told us he believes God was created by man, not the other way around, which may be why he thinks he can smooth out the world’s imperfections.

“THE MAN WHO BROKE THE BANK OF ENGLAND”

* “As September 15 wore on, George Soros’s confidence that Britain would pull the pound out of the ERM was growing. It had been Stanley Druckenmiller who had thought the time ripe for making a bet against the sterling. He talked to Soros about doing something. Soros gave him the green light but urged his head trader to bet an even larger sum than Druckenmiller had in mind. And so Druckenmiller, acting for Soros, sold $10 billion worth of sterling… The next morning at 7:00, the phone rang at Soros’s home. It was Stan Druckenmiller with news… While George Soros had slept, he racked a profit $958 million. When Soros’s gains from other positions he took during the ERM crisis were tallied, he racked up close to $2 billion… It was this bet, this single act of placing $10 billion on the fact that Britain would have to devalue the pound, that made George Soros world famous,” (SOROS THE UNAUTHORIZED BIOGRAPHY, pgs 5-6).

* “He famously shorted the British pound in 1992, wagering $10 billion on a drop in its value. In a desperate bid to keep its currency afloat, the Bank of England tried to buy up pounds as fast as Soros could dump them. However, as more and more investors followed Soros’ lead and joined his efforts, the Bank of England eventually gave up. The British pound was devalued, launching a tsunami of financial turmoil from Tokyo to Rome. When it was over, millions of hardworking Britons confronted their diminished savings, while Soros counted his gains. He had personally made nearly $2 billion on the catastrophe,” (The Shadow Party, pg. 4).

* Soros has said of this event: “I had no platform, so I deliberately [did] the sterling thing to create a platform. Obviously people care about the man who made a lot of money…my influence has continued to grow and I do have access to,”(Time Magazine, Sept 1, 1997)

* In 1997, during the Asian financial crisis, the then Malaysian Prime Minister, Mahathir bin Mohamad, accused him of bringing down the Malaysian currency, the ringgit, through his trading activities. In Thailand he was branded an “economic war criminal” who “sucks the blood from the people”.

REVOLUTIONS

* “Just write that the former Soviet Empire is now called the Soros Empire,” (The New Republic, Jan 1994)

* “I am acting out a fantasy and so is Eastern Europe. A psychiatrist once told me how dangerous it is to act out fantasies and I am beginning to see what he meant,” (http://www.osi.hu/oss/postscript.html)

ANTI-SEMITISM

* In a 1998 interview with Steve Kroft, Soros was asked if he felt guilty about confiscating property from Jews as a teenager. He responded, “No.”

* “I don’t deny the Jews their right to a national existence–but I don’t want to be part of it.”That experience notwithstanding, Soros has chosen to exclude Israel and Jewish causes, by and large, from his massive philanthropy-a decision that has caused comment among one of his colleagues in the financial community, particularly those who are strong supporters of Israel. In Hungary, Soros has been subject to anti-Semitic attacks. Referring to being a target, Soros, in his book “Underwriting Democracy,” wrote, “I am ready to stand up and be counted.” When I mentioned that rather suggestive line to Soros during one of several extended interviews with him, he responded quickly, “Right. It took me a long time.”
He continued, “My mother was quite anti-Semitic, and ashamed of being Jewish. Given the culture in which one lived, being Jewish was a clear-cut stigma, disadvantage, a handicap-and, therefore, there was always the desire to transcend it, to escape it.” He confirmed what someone had told me-that his family name had long ago been changed from Schwartz. “So the assimilationist Jews of Hungary had a deep sense of inferiority and it took me a long time to work through that,” he said, adding, however, that he succeeded in doing so many years ago… “I am escaping the particular. I think I am doing exactly that by espousing this universal concept”-of open society. “In other words, I don’t think that you can ever overcome anti-Semitism if you behave as a tribe… the only way you can overcome it is if you give up the tribalness.”

(Source: THE WORLD ACCORDING TO SOROS by CONNIE BRUC, The New Yorker, January 23, 1995,)

* “As I looked around me for a worthy cause. I ran into difficulties. I did not belong to any community. As a Hungarian Jew I had never quite become an American. I had left Hungary behind and my Jewishness did not express itself in a sense of tribal loyalty that would have led me to support Israel,” (http://www.osi.hu/oss/ch1.html)

INFO ON NAME CHANGE FROM SHWARTZ TO SOROS

* Born in Hungary in 1930, Mr. Soros began life as George Schwartz. His father, Tivadar, was from humble origins; his mother, Erzebet, from money. Both were Jews, but nonobservant (she eventually converted to Catholicism). Once married, Tivadar had to work just two hours a day managing some of his wife’s family property, which provided a handsome living for them and their two sons, Paul and George. At some point during the boys’ childhood, the parents decided to change the family name and chose the Hungarian-sounding but in fact obscure Soros. It means “soar” (in the future tense) in Esperanto, the made-up trans-European language promoted by those who dreamed of a world free of nationality. Tivadar was among its leading proponents. (Source: The Mind of George Soros; Meet the Esperanto enthusiast who wants to save the world from President Bush, 2 March 2004, The Wall Street Journal)

* Before the end of the war, however, Soros’ upper-middle-class world had inverted. The family posed as Christians and separated to hide from the Germans. They changed their name from Schwartz (considered too Jewish-sounding) to Soros (more reflective of the family’s Hungarian roots and because his father liked the palindrome).
