Only Soros Fund Management founder George Soros...[has] given more to candidates running for the U.S. House or Senate.

But Soros knows better.

Soros knows all. It's like he can see everything. Like his eyes are, I dunno, all-seeing or something. The all-seeing eyes of George Soros.

Huh, that sounds familiar. I wonder where I've heard that before.

Ken Griffin has plans to loot the Treasury directly, and cut out the middle man.

Dang, I loved watching him play baseball, but he's really let himself go (both mentally and physically) since he got into the HoF...

Dude is an asshole, I hope he steps on Legos barefoot everyday.

Make sure not to bring his name up as a political influencer, otherwise we have no choice but to assume it's an ethnic dog whistle on your part.

Because the people who make the laws are also the ones who benefit.

That 50 mil could provide for a lot of suffering Africans Americans.

Soros would know. His millions bought a lot of basement pizza, lasers, and ivermectin.

Marcus Aurelius: Ken Griffin has plans to loot the Treasury directly, and cut out the middle man.


Yep. $53 million is a lot, unless you're looking for an $80 million tax cut.

George S. (Steinbrenner) saved $600 million in estate taxes when he died.

The GOP will cover up his crimes. That's why he donated 100million.

This is the Ken Griffin that conspired with Robin Hood to illegally remove the buy button for GME during the short squeeze back in January of 2021. This guy is a criminal and my guess is this money is to do two things. Firstly it's to secure some post in a Republican led Presidency in 2024. Secondly it's to make him immune to prosecution. Nobody gives $100,000,000 to Republicans for altruistic purposes.

Now there's a POS that needs to be scrapped off the bottom of America's shoe. He's one of the big Wall Street pieces of trash committing crime on a level most could only dream of. And the SEC is going to do fark all about it because they're in on it to.

When we're talking corruption, this guy makes most others look like peewee little leagues.

bighairyguy: Why is this allowed?


It's not, technically, but don't you worry, the SEC is going to fine them $100,000 which is a lot to a peasant, granted they made 100,000,000 off the illegal actions, but hey, they paid the fine.

I mean, fark the GOP, but where Wall Street corruption is concerned there really is a bipartisan effort. The only ones who call that out are the "far left" who get painted as "crazy" Bernie, Aoc, Warren, Porter.

Everyone else shuts the fark up and cashes the check.

He's not the only donor doing this.

FTA: Soros has donated over $128 million to Democrats while Uihlein has given $53 million to Republicans, according to OpenSecrets.

In an ideal world, the only thing money "donated" to a politician would get you is all your assets seized and your ass in handcuffs.

Get money out of politics.

And shutter Fox News.

Republicans: the best return on investment you will ever find
 
2022-10-07 3:23:23 PM  
Citadel's billionaire CEO, Ken Griffin, is one of Wall Street's biggest political donors in the 2022 midterms, giving more than $100 million toward state and federal candidates across the country since April 2021, campaign finance records show. ... Only Soros Fund Management founder George Soros and shipping magnate Richard Uihlein have given more to candidates running for the U.S. House or Senate...  Uihlein has given $53 million to Republicans, according to OpenSecrets.

The hilarious thing that the article doesn't mention is that Griffin and Uihlein spent millions of dollars on GOP candidates who were running against each other.  Griffin backed a stooge in the Republican gubernatorial primary in Illinois against Uihlein's candidate (who was also backed by the Democratic governor, JB Pritzker - long story).  When Griffin's candidate lost, Griffin was so butt-hurt that he declared Chicago had too much crime and that he was moving his operations to Florida.  Which, ironically, had the desired effect, in that Chicago got rid of one of its biggest criminals when Griffin moved out of the city.  So, mission accomplished, I guess.
