Soros’ Shakeup [DETAILS]

George Soros is clearly winding up his affairs. Even his beloved Open Societies Foundation spokesunits are admitting that he’s making changes at his foundation “while he still can.” As progressives depending on George’s cash for survival are running around in panic mode, a successor has been named, keeping their fortune in the family.

Soros plugs the cash flood

As phones are melting down at foundation headquarters, always with some radical socialist on the other end of the phone – desperate to share George Soros’ wealth, all grant writers can say is “take a number.

They’re going through “painful restructuring,” they admit, but they’ll achieve full global domination any day now. They’re going to refocus on fighting “against rising authoritarianism around the world.” Just as soon as they figure out where to get more money.

There’s good news and bad news, they emailed all U.S. grant recipients last March. The good news was that “resistance is translating into real progress.” Donald Trump had been soundly defeated. He lost the election, too. Their bad news was buried much further down.

The rabidly Left-leaning foundation which George Soros started may be the “second-largest private charitable foundation in the United States,” right behind that guy who brought us Windows, but they were “beginning a transformation.” Kind of like that first set of hormone shots leading to one big final snip. So, their email warned, “the nature of many partnerships will shift.”

To ease progressive pain, “many of the nonprofit groups that relied on support from Open Society were getting what were called ‘tie-off grants,’ a final year or so of funding to ease the blow of getting cut off.

Soros tucked aside “an enormous $400 million for what amounted to severance payments to organizations around the world.” They paid off employees with buyouts. 150 of them. Grant recipients were “stunned to be told during a global pandemic that they would be losing funding.”

A refugee himself

The refugee activists went crazy. “Others supporting refugees were similarly surprised given the worldwide needs of the refugee population and the fact that Mr. Soros himself was a refugee from communism.” The foundation headed that line of reasoning off with a statement.

Now, with its founder in his 90s, the foundation — and the world — confronts rising authoritarianism and deeply divided civil societies.” He can’t help because “Mr. Soros’ work on progressive causes has made him a target of right-wing conspiracy theories.” You bet it did.

Mark Malloch-Brown, president of the foundation, described it as a “patchwork of separately constituted national organizations, regional offices around the world and thematic programs based chiefly in New York.

He was recently appointed to steer “the organization through the transition period.” While everyone depending on the money is totally freaking out, Malloch-Brown is hacking away the dead wood with a machete. “This is a task which the board, George Soros, myself, none of us felt could wait,” Mr. Malloch-Brown said. “Time is lives when you’re in the business we’re in of human rights and democracy.”

Alex Soros has been officially named as George’s “heir apparent.” The New York Times points out that in “comments to staff on a call earlier this month Mr. Soros’ son Alex, 35, the deputy chairman of the global board and his father’s heir apparent, acknowledged the difficulty of the transition but said the foundation would be stronger for it.” The rank and file are furious.

One employee wrote, “I believe this transformation has already done more to incapacitate OSF’s ability to support open societies, than all its enemies across the world, during an historic and pivotal moment.” You can bet her grant is in jeopardy of being canceled.
