Editor’s Note: We present here the major part of a masscirculation pamphlet produced by the LaRouche Political Action Committee.
Back during Presidential campaign year 2004, my associates and I were calling attention to an important book on the subject of The Confessions of an Economic Hit-Man. That man had a conscience. In the following report, LPAC is featuring a much bigger story, on the subject of George Soros as a political-economic hit-man. The George Soros we present in this report, has no conscience about what he has done, or what he does. This is a report written, in large part, by Soros’ own mouth.
George Soros is not a top-ranking financier, he is like the mafia thug, without a real conscience, like a thug sent to kill a friend of yours, but only a hit-man for the really big financial interests, hired out to rob your friends, and you, of about everything, including their nation, and your personal freedom.
George Soros does not actually own Senator Barack Obama; some other people do; but, Soros is a key controller, and seemingly the virtual owner of both Democratic Party Chairman Howard “Scream” Dean, that Party, perhaps your political party, and, in fact, your nation, which are both what political-economic hit-man George Soros is aiming to destroy.

George Soros: Hit-Man for The British Oligarchy
by Hector A. Rivas, Jr.
The Golem Is Born
The pathetic creature known as George Soros made a willful decision early in life to become the character that he is now: a Golem. A teenager during the Nazi Occupation of his homeland, Hungary, Soros began his genocidal legacy by working for the killing machines that slaughtered 500,000 Hungarian Jews during the Holocaust. Young Soros was given a job looting the properties of Jews under the regime of SS Lt. Gen. Kurt Becher, head of the Waffen SS section known euphemistically as The Economic Department of the SS Command.
Soros credits his father for his own good fortune in avoiding the gruesome scenes of the concentration camps. In a broadcast on WNET/Thirteen TV on April 15, 1993 Soros recalled those experiences that formed his beastly identity: “When the Germans came in, he [the father—ed.] said, ‘This is a lawless occupation. The normal rules don’t apply. You have to forget how you behave in a normal society. This is an abnormal situation.’And he arranged for all of us to have false papers, everybody had a different arrangement. I was adopted by an official of the minister of agriculture, whose job was to take over Jewish properties, so I actually went with him and we took possession of these large estates. That was my identity. So it’s a strange, very strange life. I was 14 years old at the time.” His father, Tivadar Soros, professed further that, “as pseudo-Christians, we had not quite reached that level of Christianity where we were willing to return bread for stones.” The Soros family indeed offered plenty of stones to the many poor Hungarian Jews who were shipped off to Auschwitz to meet their death.1
The Soros family was among the “elite” Hungarian Jews, which afforded them the ability to make arrangements to survive under the Nazi occupation. Prince Alexis Scherbatoff, former member of the U.S. Army Counterintelligence Corps before and after World War II, alleged that Soros obtained his first small fortune by selling his share of the loot seized with the Nazis. He reported that Soros’ first accomplice was another Hungarian Jew, who sold rubies and other Nazi plunder in Belgium after World War II.
Ben Hecht, author of the book Perfidy, documents the activities of the Nazi Economic Department in Hungary, and the atrocities committed by the employers of young Soros. The Department was in charge of pillaging Jewish properties and “removing the gold fillings from the millions of teeth of the dead Jews; in cutting off the hair of millions of Jewesses before killing them, and shipping bales of hair to Germany’s mattress factories; in converting the fat of dead Jews into bath soap, and in figuring out effective methods of torture to induce the Jews awaiting death to reveal where they had hidden their last possessions.”
George Soros was confronted with such images during an interview with Steve Kroft on CBS’s 60 Minutes on December 20, 1998:
Kroft: (Voiceover) These are pictures from 1944 of what happened to George Soros’ friends and neighbors. (Vintage footage of women and men with bags over their shoulders walking; crowd by a train)
Kroft: (Voiceover)You’re a Hungarian Jew…
Mr. Soros: Right. I was 14 years old. And I would say that that’s when my character was made.
Kroft: In what way?
Mr. Soros: That one should think ahead. One should understand and–and anticipate events and when–when
one is threatened. It was a tremendous threat of evil. I mean, it was a–a very personal experience of evil.
Kroft: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted
Mr. Soros: Yes. Yes.
Kroft: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.
Mr. Soros: Yes. That’s right. Yes.
Kroft: I mean, that’s–that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for
many, many years. Was it difficult?
Mr. Soros: Not–not at all. Not at all. Maybe as a
child you don’t–you don’t see the connection. But it
was–it created no–no problem at all.
Kroft: No feeling of guilt?
Mr. Soros: No.
Kroft: For example that, ‘I’m Jewish and here I am, watching these people go. I could just
as easily be there. I should be there.’ None of that?
Mr. Soros: Well, of course I c—I could be on the other side or I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away. But there was no sense that I shouldn’t be there, because that was—well, actually, in a funny way, it’s just like in markets—that if I weren’t there—of course, I wasn’t doing it, but somebody else would—would—would be taking it away anyhow. And it was the—whether I was there or not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. So the—I had no role in taking away that property. So I had no sense of guilt.
Mr. Soros: (Voiceover) Mm-hmm.
Kroft: (Voiceover) . . .who escaped the Holocaust. . . (Vintage footage of women walking by train)
Mr. Soros: (Voiceover) Mm-hmm. (Vintage footage of people getting on train)
Kroft: (Voiceover) . . .by–by posing as a Christian.
Mr. Soros: (Voiceover) Right. (Vintage footage of women helping each other get on train; train door closing with people in boxcar)
Kroft: (Voiceover) And you watched lots of people get shipped off to the death camps.
Crafted and Unleashed
Nazi collaborator George Soros, set off to England in 1947 where he became the protégé of radical positivist Sir Karl Popper, who taught at the Fabian Society-initiated London School of Economics in the 1950’s.
This is the same Karl Popper who blamed a large part of the crises of developing countries on the “political stupidity” of its leaders. Popper himself states that, “We [the Empire—ed.] have liberated these states too early and in too primitive a way. These are no-law states yet. The same would happen if you’d leave a kindergarten to itself.” Soros’ mentor then argued that the “civilized world” has the right to launch wars against the Third World for the sake of “peace.” Soros bowed to his masters, and carried out that war.
Soros used his Quantum Fund to conduct financial warfare through derivatives and currency speculation. On the European front, in 1992, Soros won a key battle against the European Rate
Mechanism (ERM), which was Europe’s financial structure to maintain stable exchange rates among the currencies of Europe.
Soros created a financial crisis so that the system could be replaced by the Maastricht Treaty, which established the Euro as the single European currency, and put financial authority in the hands of one central bank, controlled by the Anglo-Dutch oligarchy. This plot began when representatives of Soros met on June 2, 1992, with top British and Anglo-Dutch financial predators, on Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s yacht Britannia.
Part of this operation can be understood by looking at his attacks against the Italian lira in the early 1990’s, which earned him 400 billion lira ($280 million) within a matter of days, while the Bank of Italy was forced to spend, between June and September of 1992, $48 billion of its reserves in a vain attempt to defend its currency. Within a few years, Soros was under criminal investigation for these sinister attacks. Members of the Movimento Internazionale per Diritti Civili Solidarietà first submitted testimony on Soros to the Milan court in 1995, and by the next year, investigations were launched out of Rome and Naples, which were reported on in the Dec. 24, 1996 issue of Corriere della Sera: “The investigation has just started, but the results could be explosive, and the name of the individual being officially investigated gives an idea of how delicate this investigation is: The name is George Soros. . . . The crime is stock-jobbing. . . . It concerns the attack on the lira.” Of course, not all of the money used in this operation can be attributed to “Golem” Soros, but was only money that was handed to him, by London. After all, a Golem doesn’t make himself, he is created and, true to form, Soros’ natural instinct is only to do what he is told in order to survive.
His father taught his boy how to follow his masters very well under the Nazi occupation in Hungary: “The most rational approach, in my view, was complete separation, followed by a quiet effort to blend in with the general population. That is the way animals do it: when they sense danger, instead of presenting a clear target to their enemies, their natural mode of self-preservation is to blend with the scenery and simply disappear. Naturalists call this phenomenon ‘mimicry.’ ”
Soros was raised to behave likelike a beast, and so he does. Upon the destruction of the ERM, which set the stage for Maastricht and, inevitably, the Lisbon Treaty, Soros had only this to say: “I’m sure speculative actions have had some negative consequences. But that does not enter my thinking at all. It cannot. If I abstained from certain actions because of moral doubts, then I would cease to be an effective speculator. I have not even a shadow of remorse for making a profit.” He continues, “I did it only to make money”.
On Nov. 30, 1994, Soros spoke before an audience at the Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, and announced his new foundation, Project on Death in America, to shift the training of hospitals, nurses, and doctors away from expensive life-saving treatment, to the proper care of the dying. In pushing euthanasia legislation, Soros made the Nazi “useless eater” policy legal in the U.S.
A Soros-sponsored assisted suicide (a.k.a. homicide) program to offer patients lethal prescriptions was the Oregon Death with Dignity Act, which subsequently passed in 1998: “As the first state in the United States to allow physicians to help terminally ill patients end their lives, Oregon’s experience will be closely watched by other states.” Through the Open Society, the Death in America project and other organizations concerned with “end-of-life” issues began collaboration on “transforming the culture of dying.”
Soros promoted on his website a one-day seminar coordinated by Balfour Mount, M.D. of Royal Victoria Hospital in the mid-1990’s entitled “Searching for the Soul of Euthanasia.” Soros offered his personal thoughts on the matter: “The use of technology to extend life when life has no meaning, does not make any sense. . . . It may be more negative than positive, because it causes unnecessary pain and suffering, not to mention the expense” (emphasis added).
