(Here's a guy who spent his childhood, his formative years, looting the residences of his fellow Hungarians while they themselves were packed like animals in the cattle cars wending their way on their final journey to Auschwitz. Soros regards this period of his life :"Heady and invigorating". Heady and invigorating? Do you think he cares one wit about America or its people?)

"LightSquared is seeking to establish a new wireless broadband network that many, including Air Force Gen. William Shelton, believe could interfere with critical GPS systems used by the U.S. military. But Shelton, head of Space Command, confided to lawmakers that he thought his testimony had been leaked to LightSquared, and that he had rejected requests from the White House to downplay his concerns.


The company is being funded by private equity titan Philip Falcone, the founder of Harbinger Capital Partners, a hedge fund that has counted Soros as a "significant" investor since 2009, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Soros also funds four groups that have lobbied on behalf of LightSquared in regulatory and policy fights.

The Washington Examiner first reported this week that the Public Interest Spectrum Coalition, which includes the Soros-funded groups Free Press, Media Access Project, the New America Foundation and Public Knowledge, filed a petition with the Federal Communications Commission in April 2010 supporting Harbinger's attempt to become a national player in the wireless industry over the objections of AT&T and Verizon."

Wow.

Just fucking wow.

Soros was a Nazi collaborator and Obama has a history of profiting from shady characters like Rezko, Iraq Oil for Food Fugitive Auchi and Soros

I can already envision the book titles, should we be so lucky as to be able to remove him after these four abysmal years. "Misadventures in Socialism: America From January 20, 2009-January 19, 2013"
