You do not explain your arguments...it's easy to throw one-word rants that say nothing.

Who is the 'loonie" you are referring to?

Can George Soros loosen his grip on NPR now?

Biden will likely win, but the Republican Senate looks to remain.

Soros Regrets Early Investment in Peter Thiel's Palantir

(Bloomberg) -- Soros Fund Management, which revealed this week that it owned 18.46 million shares of Palantir Technologies Inc., said it made the investment in the data-mining company in 2012 and wouldn't do the same again today.



© Bloomberg People stand in front a banner displaying Palantir Technologies Inc. signage during the company's initial public offering (IPO) in front of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in New York, U.S., on Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2020. Shares of Palantir Technologies, a data mining company co-founded by technology billionaire Peter Thiel, opened trading today on the New York Stock Exchange at $10 after the company sold shares to investors in a direct offering."SFM made this investment at a time when the negative social consequences of big data were less understood," the firm said in a statement Tuesday. "SFM would not make an investment in Palantir today."

George Soros's investment firm disclosed the holding in its latest 13F regulatory filing late Friday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The position was worth $175 million at the end of the quarter.

Soros explained in a note posted on the Open Society Foundations website that the money manager who originally made the investment is no longer employed with the investment firm. The position in Palantir was converted into publicly traded shares when Palantir, co-founded by Peter Thiel, became listed on the New York Stock Exchange in September.

Soros has sold all the shares it's permitted to sell at this time and will keep selling, according to the statement. "SFM does not approve of Palantir's business practices," the firm said.

Soros, 90, has used his vast wealth to become one of the world's largest funders of groups promoting justice, democracy, human rights and progressive politics through his Open Society Foundations. He's poured billions into his philanthropic efforts, and most of his firm's assets now belong to the foundations rather than to the Soros family.

Seeking to rehabilitate one's image/reputation is nothing new to those who have spent the better part of their lives chasing ill-gotten gains.

Many re-brand as 'philanthropists'. Best to look at how they made their fortunes.

(Abramorama) George Soros may be one of the most famous billionaires in the world — or, some might say, one of the most infamous. He’s not the kind of rich guy who’s on TV all the time, making speeches. Instead, Soros has donated much of his fortune to organizations promoting human rights, supporting causes often in opposition to powerful political and religious authoritarians — who, in turn, have urged their followers to question his motivations.

So many such as Open Society Foundation which has said they financially support groups who supposedly fight racial injustice which obviously includes antifa and BLM. It's the same damn antifa people who dont hold jobs and spend their days going to rallies and hotspots across the country. I've seen their camps. Where do you think they get the means to travel, buy riot gear, fireworks bombs and shit not to mention basic necessities to survive. Have you seen vans handing out professionally made signs, this is a coordinated effort that requires funding. All young people who could never afford to spend years doing nothing but travelling and rioting.

The 'traveling and rioting' show. I believe it.

I was shopping for flowers @ the Oakland Farmer's Market downtown and found myself in the middle of one of these marches. I noticed no one was older than 25-30. This was on a Friday @ 1pm. Looked like a bunch of kids who did not work and lived with mommy.

I've been reading and hear a lot of what you posted from so many sources, from the average man to certain media.

It's twilight zone weird that there are so many people turning blind eyes to what you posted here.

Videos that get removed, regular people videos and reports of this very thing.

I've see FB pages where they requested people to send their cash apps after protests to pay them for their time and if their was anything messed up or broken to send a receipt.

Another thing I noticed like you said is the age range. People with jobs and responsibities are not doing this stuff. And I have screen shots of FB page blm/social justice groups within New York state, where a lot of these youth are recovering from various substance abuse, and other kinds of abuses, people with mental health issues, and this stuff fuels their fire. It's partially why they can go to places and try to wreck cities towns and local business. They don't care. We saw this all happening in Ferguson years ago. Local residents reporting vans of people being unloaded 'after dark' while the 'peaceful protest' was taking place. Black Brown White residents having their mom n pop shops destroyed, neighborhoods destroyed and trashed. It really go my attention when I read a piece by an African American man who lived in Ferguson, yelling that those people did not live here that they were destroying and trashing their area and were not going to be there to help clean it up or fix it up. Years later Ferguson has not recoverd.

But this kind of 'funded protesting' has been happening in various 'social justice' concepts

I've seen much of the same you have. The antifa camps had hundreds of tents all identical, proof they were supplied by someone or something. The guy filming it from a distance started getting attacked by the antifa watchman.

I know this is a tiny part of your comment, but it's one that I want to address with my own anecdote.

There are plenty of mental health issues and psychiatric diagnoses in my family. I have participated in some protest marches in my time, and I also devote time to other sorts of political activity/activism/whatever one would call it.

I, and other family members as well, make time to do these things along with working at jobs, child rearing, etc., etc.

We are far from alone as families that fit this description. I stand behind what we do as a family. To me, it's a positive part of stepping up and participating. Civic engagement.

Perhaps this is not what you are suggesting, but anyone who suggests that the activism of one "side" is all pure/"noninfiltrated"/unproblematic, while it's just the opposite for the other side...anyone who suggests that is not getting to the truth. IMO, just as anyone who broadly suggests that the US doesn't give a lot of welfare to both people and corporations is not getting to the truth.

Good points. Perhaps, it could be that it has been less well-known that the Left endorses less savory practices as well as the Right.

Also, what is known (and also what is acknowledged) varies a lot depending on where you are located/visiting at the time...be that where on the web, where in one's nation, or where in the world.

Look at these girls recently arrested for punching a police chief in the face and other attacks against cops. Ages 23, 28, 23 and another 24. We have a big problem with young girls and as long as its catch and release it ain't gonna change.
