George Soros Worried about Survival!

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

The World Economic Forum (January 25-29) in Davos, Switzerland, is probably the most important ever.  The world is closer to another financial meltdown that could crush the tenuous global economy.  Many experts have said the next meltdown will be bigger than 2008.  On top of the list of problems to tackle is the sovereign debt crisis and insolvent European banks.  Last year, Davos participants said the world needed $100 trillion to “support growth.”  I wonder if that figure will increase this year.

Now, billionaire George Soros is not worried about a financial meltdown but just his “survival!”  He thinks things could get so out of hand that there could be great upheavals in societies around the planet.  He said he was worried about “danger . . .  and evil.”  The Daily Beast reported yesterday, “Has the great short seller gone soft? Well, yes. Sitting in his 33rd-floor corner office high above Seventh Avenue in New York, preparing for his trip to Davos, he is more concerned with surviving than staying rich. “At times like these, survival is the most important thing,” he says, peering through his owlish glasses and brushing wisps of gray hair off his forehead. He doesn’t just mean it’s time to protect your assets. He means it’s time to stave off disaster. As he sees it, the world faces one of the most dangerous periods of modern history—a period of “evil.” Europe is confronting a descent into chaos and conflict. In America he predicts riots on the streets that will lead to a brutal clampdown that will dramatically curtail civil liberties. The global economic system could even collapse altogether.”   (Click here for the complete Daily Beast story on Soros.) 

2011 was a watershed year for scary quotes from world leaders, and 2012 is starting off with a bang.  If this is what people like George Soros says to the press, things must be getting pretty bad.  Please keep an eye on the 2012 Davos meeting.  I think world leaders are scared and have very few options.  Something wicked is coming, and Soros is tipping us all off.

    Maj. Ed Dames said in 2010 that 2011 would be the year of economic pain, 2012 & 2013 the years for physical pain. Say what you will about Dames, but he may have finally gotten something right.

      Thank you NM and Brad for the comments and info.

    I think world leaders like Obama et al. are so cocky, that they believe they can fix any problem. They won’t and don’t see anything bad coming or at least nothing they won’t (in their own minds) be able to control.

    Hey Greg , Glad you noticed this article and commented on it . That was an eye opener and a jaw dropper for me . In a time when things “seem” to be getting better according to fake unemployment numbers and unfortunately real “new” debt ceilings . The only thing i had to question about the whole article was: If George Soros has such a terrible outlook on the future why would he be against buying Gold ? “The biggest investing bubble ever ” ? According to him ? He’s kind of the E.F Hutton of our day , when he speaks people listen . So is he just using this power to short sell something or is he generally concerned ?

    • Greg

      Nathan,
      Even the USA Today said that “Growth will edd.” You know some stuff is getting ready to hit the fan when this is the best spin they can put on a story. Thank you for the comment.

    I’m glad some one at the top realizes that things are going to get nasty. Why should the 99 have 100% of the fear?

    Is George playing mind games? I think he sets things up to profit from them. Sell your gold it is a bubble? That’s a risk I will take.

    • Greg

      Jan,
      I think he and many other financial elites are genuinely scared. Wait until people realize all their retirement savings are gone or mostly gone. You’d be scared too.

        There aren’t enough private Islands to hide on Greg. There are mean people out there and those not capable of killing themselves when the bottom falls out, like in 29, will be looking for another avenue. That’s when you want to be holed up some where safe for a couple weeks. That’s my plan.

        • Greg

          Sounds like a good plan.

      I think people like Soros are truly concerned about their saftey. People like Soros cost a lot of people money in their 401K’s by market manipulation.

      • Greg

        George Too,
        You got that right and folks have not even seen the worst of the stealing that is coming!

        True,

        When law becomes lawless you better believe somebody will come knocking at people like Soros door. He did hurt a lot of people.

    I wonder if he will help round up dissidents for the labor camps, as he did for the NAZI’s during WWII.

      Ken,
      Isn’t Soros Jewish? I did not know this. Thank you.

        Soros has even admitted that one of his jobs as a youth was to go in and help clean out the belongings of those poor souls that had been sent off to the camps. Evil??….he should know, he’s been a key figure in creating a lot of it (and misery) around the world.

    George Soros worried about surviving? You have to be kidding me.
    When it all goes down, he will jump in a private jet and fly to some unheard island and live out the rest of his days in plush. He deserves to worry and the only place he should go is to the south pole.
    Those who have had the power to change things for the good and used their power for chaos and evil, should be damned. This man has interferred in the affairs of countries to make money with no remorse. He thinks of himself as a god.
    Hope he is the first of many starting to worry.

    • Greg

      Sling,
      He’s got to get to the jet first.

    The globalist NWO types have an agenda to promote chaos as a means to scare the sheeple and make them more willing to accept totalitarian control. The history of the Rothschilds, Morgans, Warburgs, et al is replete with examples of this group being on both sides of numerous conflicts, primarily to acquire assets on the cheap, and to replace duly elected politicians with bought and paid for technocrats. Should any politician get in the way of the globalist agenda, they are conveniently destroyed or assassinated. The attempt on Andrew Jackson and Reagan and the successful ones on Lincoln and Kennedy should be re-examined for the threats they posed to the globalist banking cartel. Why more people cannot connect the dots of the incremental destruction of America is beyond me.

    • Denarius

      “Why more people cannot connect the dots . . . ”
      One reason may be Gov’t supported/controlled education/indoctrination.
      Also, remember Garfield and attempts on FDR and the Pope.
      Fascinating planet we have here; too bad it’s run by the PTB.

    Isn’t Soros whining rhetoric just to set the scene for implementation of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA, aka Indefinite Detention) portion? He is making it clear that he, and I am sure many others that fall into the category of “RICH ELITES”, are very concerned that the American public will break out into civil unrest. Then the government can just put us in prison under almost any premise. The new FEMA camps that have been built around the country will serve as “concentration camps” under military control.

    It is guys like Soros who have contributed to the mess we are in by supporting every left wing radical position you can imagine. So I don’t think he is specifically concern, he will simply move to a safer location.

    Soros is right when he says that this “period of evil” will result in our loss of liberties, beyond the ones we have already lost. An example is the dangerous period coming up just before the general election, where “We the People” cannot say anything negative about the candidates 30 days before the election. If “We the People” do say something negative, then “We the People” can be incarcerated. So, if you are not in the Media Arm of the Executive Branch of the federal government, beware!

    It could lead to the first contested cases against the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA, aka Indefinite Detention). However, with the Supreme Court packed with stooges from mostly liberal administrations the justice served may not be non-bias.

    As always I and many others appreciate the time you put in to letting us know what is going on. You almost need a team of USAWatchdog(s) to follow everything that is critical…too many crooks and villains in office.

      I hate to break this too you but Romney said in the debates that he was for the NDAA. Both parties suck, but your point is well made and well taken.

    Greg,
    I first want to thank you for your consistent and non-biased reporting of relevant and current events. I following your site very closely and have thoroughly enjoyed your articles and the information you bring through this median. Keep up the great work!

    With that said, I am curious on how you process this information. How do you deal with the potential for a monetary and/or social collapse (emotionally and materially)? Is there anything outside of God, gold, and guns…that a guy should concern himself with? …Farming? These are thoughts that plague me as I consider future scenarios and how to best prepare myself and my family in the event of SHTF situation.

    Unfortunately, there will be two types of fool when this has all played out. The guy who didn’t see it coming and the guy who had researched and listened to people like you and failed to respond with the appropriate action.

    Personally, I don’t want to be in either camp.

    Thanks again for all of your work. It is truly appreciated.
    Kyle

    George Soros, Who’s he? He puts his pants on one leg at a time like everybody else. He will die and be forgotten like everybody else on this planet. He has money, guess what that won’t save him either! All he does is take up space for a while here on earth and knows no more of what the future holds than Joe Mainstreet. He probably gets less sleep worrying about his money than the rest of us. It will all be somebody elses some day. If you want real wisdom go find it from the people who work hard everyday, pay their bills, raise their families and are the back bone of this country. Money has nothing to do with being smart! Go find a hero at your local church, foodbank, hospital, school, military base. These people have more wisdom than Soros ever will.

      “Nothing gives the impression of high intelligence more
      than the close association with large amounts of money.”

      “If you want to know a man’s worth,
      first take away all his money.”

      • Bill

        This unfortunately is true not just about the rich but average Americans too! In the Great Depression people had intimate knowledge with 19th century frontier living even though the dawn of the 20th century meant more “prosperity” in the form of groceries, healthcare, gasoline cars and electricity. Nowadays there are few if any mainstream individual who has ever lived a single day without electricity! The average 14 year old boy was more able to survive in the boonies than the average 40 year old man is today! The populace is ripe for disaster and 2012 is the year!

    Maybe Soros is remembering the French Revolution

    Greg,

    I think most people recall the Donner Party, the 1846 group that ended up trapped in the Western Mountains by a freakish storm & they ended up with many dying & the rest resorting to Cannibalism to survive.

    I recall a researcher that studied the Donner Party a few years back.

    The researcher, I believe, correctly pointed out that one of the most important things we today should learn from the Donner Party’s tragedy is that we should attempt to recognize when we are in fact trapped in a vicious storm as early as possible “& Always Cannibalize the Fattest ones first!” LOL;)

    George Sores & the rest of those murdering, horse, cattle rustling Wallst/London Banking/Insurance Trash have every reason to be feeling guilty & afraid as We the People know who they are & the crimes those “Fascist” aholes have committed.

    And if “We the People” have any hope of survival the first thing we must do is to recognize that we are now trapped by a vicious storm & that the Fattest of the Banking/Insurance Trash must be Cannibalized First! LOL;)

    If one isn’t locked into the Right/Left fake paradigm & you are interested in more then just surviving here are a couple of thought provoking webites:

    When it comes to US Law/Constitutional issues and your “Rights” as the majority owners of the USA & our government there are few if any currently better then JonathanTurley.

    (Ron Paul’s head legal guy, I forget his name, is on the same page as Turley.)

    The guy is “talking his book”. In other words he is telling you what he wants you to believe and not what he is doing. The man did not get to be where he is by being straight. Google “top down, bottom up, inside out” and you may get a taste of where he is coming from. He is the top. His paid for usefull idiots (OWS) are the bottom. Us sheep are the ones demanding the top take away our rights to protect us from the bottom. Guess who wins???

    • Denarius

      Thanks, Bub; you saved me from typing my thoughts exactly.

  16. Richard

    George Soros, Peter Schiff and Jim Rogers have all come out in recent days and called it within 3 years. Previously no one wanted to give an actual time for the meltdown, but rather a warning that it’s coming and to prepare.

    I have read that things could get very, very ugly for at least 3 months while new systems are put into place. People such as myself that require certain medications to stay alive will be in a whole lot of trouble within one month. I can only get a 30 day supply of my most important prescriptions.

    What am I to do after 30 days if everything is buggered up to the point where nothing is moving?

    George Soros is up on all his preper survivalist stuff while the rest of us continue the rat race in vain. Soros has to survive and continue his bloodline, he’s the ruling demi-god class and we are the sheep that need to be culled!
    Soros will be heading to the Rockies and living off the land(as in confiscating land and wealth from current land owners in the rockies). He’ll than have these non-deserving sheep put into camps were they belong.
    Everything this man says he’s worried about,he’s actually threatening to do! Almondjoy nutjob in Iran threaten’s Isreal, this guy threatens US constitution and sovereignty of US individuals, he’s no different from those threatening to destroy Isreal! Come on GOP see this guy for the clear and present danger he is to the US! Unfortunately what he says about Romney is true, Romney if elected will about face from all his campaign promises and be just another leader managing Americas unstopable(planned) downfall as Obama, Reid and Bohner have been doing!
