Insider trading conviction of Leftist Gazillionaire George Soros upheld

From the AP

The highest court in France on Wednesday rejected a bid by George Soros, the billionaire investor, to overturn a conviction for insider trading in a case dating back nearly 20 years, leaving the first blemish on his five-decade investing career.

The panel, the Cour de Cassation, upheld the conviction of Soros, 75, an American citizen, for buying and selling Société Générale shares in 1988 after receiving information about a planned corporate raid on the bank


Soros is the epidomy of everything wrong in politics.

Wow, Dan, you really had to go a long way for that attack. A 20-year-old case in France.
Soros sure hit the nail on the head with this quote from the article. At an appeals hearing in 2005, Soros told the court his insider trading conviction had been a "gift to my enemies" in the United States and elsewhere. No doubt.

He’s nowhere near the vile put out by Richard Scaife, but you always fail to mention him. He’s the one who started the nasty turn in politics with his shameful attacks on President Clinton, and his financing of the smear boat veterans. You should read the book “Blinded by the Right” by David Brock, and then tell me about the liberal media myth and your hero Scaife.

Scaife is the epitome of everything wrong in politics.

Hey, Kindergarten Kevin -

You seem to have forgotten the shameful way that Democrats and the media launched unrelenting attacks on Ronald Reagan which began before he was elected and continued until well after he left office.

Clinton was treated with kid gloves compared to the nasty treatment of President Reagan.

As for Soros, this conviction just confirms what everyone already knew about him - that he is a crooked fruitcake that deserves to spend time in prison. At least now when he spends millions of dollars on his political propaganda campaigns we can now point out that he is a convicted felon.

Ha - Clinton is a felon and Soros is a felon. Great bedfellows.

Ronald Reagan treated poorly? What planet did you fall from?

I’m heads some tall tales, lies and misinformation on this blog, but this one takes the cake.
This one is unbelievable.
“You seem to have forgotten the shameful way that Democrats and the media launched unrelenting attacks on Ronald Reagan which began before he was elected and continued until well after he left office.”

”Clinton was treated with kid gloves compared to the nasty treatment of President Reagan.”

Are you serious!!!!!. What planet are you from? The attacks on Clinton were unprecedented, and nothing has been seen before or since, including the shameful smear of a decorated combat veteran by people too scared to go in harm’s way.

Nothing else you say after that whopper carries any credibility. I would stay anonymous too if I were that stupid.

For the other posters. Mr. Soros and President Clinton are not felons. The President has never committed a crime, despite all the right wing noise, lies and misinformation.

Clinton was a animal who pardoned a billionaire tax evader after his wife donated millions to the DNC. The real question is if there is a French Clintonesque sleaze ball for Soros to give a 'donation' to for a pardon.

Kevins said...

OK. If you can't dispute the facts, then lower yourself to the the gutter and name call. What do you call someone who causes the deaths of thousands and of innocent men, women and children and American Servicemen and women for no reason, other than a lie. An animal?
Well, he will not do any jail time, so he doesn't need a pardon.Hey, don't let the facts get in the way of a good lie, right?

Don't you dare call that disbarred pervert "President". Clinton sank to new lows. He is a rapist, a child molester, a cheat, a liar, and is still trying to define "is". Get out of here. He was the worst embarrassment our Nation has ever had. The puke factor for Clinton is darn near 90%. Hilary has NO chance of ever being president being married to that pond scum. And being married to him doesn't say much about her character or judgement either.

No war crimes convictions for the two most courageous leaders the world has ever known. You people are a hoot. Cowards cower, the rest of us stand tall and firm in our conviction. The war was necessary to protect the American people and our country. What is wrong with you limp wrists? You make up crap and try to make the world believe you and you all say the same stuff, those days are over pal. You cut and run. Run far, we won't miss you. Bug eyed Pelosi is the best you got? Big trouble for you. Stab-a-cow is next on the chopping block. Can't wait for November. I'll stand at the exit polls with a kleenex for all you limp wristed cut and run cowards. Don't worry, we'll continue to protect you from yourselves.

Actually, that would be Jimmy Carter.

Republican Michigander said...

I take that back. Carter's the worst president our nation has had.

The worst embarassment is George Soros.

This irrational hate of President Clinton from idiots like anonymous is what we saw for eight years of the Clinton presidency that tore our country apart and has set the tone for political debate ever since and made the politics of personal destruction the norm.

In your warped mind, anonymous, how the hell is President Clinton a rapist, a child molester, a cheat or a liar? No dan and anonymous, the worst president ever is george “silver spoon” bush, and his approval ratings prove it. As for the biggest embarrassment, there's the only U.S. president to ever quit in disgrace while in office, maybe you remember him. As for Sen. Clinton being president, frankly she’s more qualified than most and the country would be better off, but I don’t want to see her president because of the embarrassing, personal attacks from the right we saw on her husband. If they destroy the country I the process, so be it, you guys could care less.

Blair and bush will never be convicted of war caroms, and it’s ridiculous to even think so. However, that doesn’t mean it’s not true.

You can’t be serious when you say, “The war was necessary to protect the American people and our country.” Protect us from what? Where are the WMD that were the immediate threat to U.S. that the bushies used to sell us the war?

Here’s what gets me about the right. They are the first ones to want to go to war, but they’re always the last ones to wear a uniform. If you look at all the hawks in the administration and their supporters, how many have been in uniform or combat? None that I know of, but maybe you can tell me who has, dan and anonymous?
Then you can tell me about limp wrists, what ever that means.

Our soldiers are being used to make money for companies such as Haliburton. When does the right really care about what happens to our soldiers and their families? They just want to get them in uniform and then forget about them and their families. These brave soldiers are giving up their lives to serve our country. We should as a nation demand their lives not be treated so cheaply.
I stand by my war crimes statement.. They need to stand trial after they leave office.

You liberals all seem to just wish away 9/11 for your conveince. How can this be so easy for you.

wilberboy said...

You liberals sure do like this site. Wont Kos let you play on his anymore?

Bush and Blair will be convicted of war crimes. That is a joke, Perhaps you should look @ the news today about the WMD's found 500 since 2003. Yellow cake Joe Wilson is the liar and the MSM went along for the ride. Why do we care that you hate Bush so much, he is out. You need to tell us what your party is going to do. Quit the negative and tell us the positive thing you Dems are going to do to turn around the country you say is in so bad of shape. As far as I see your party is divided the loony left such as your self and the 2nd half that wants to finish the job in Iraq. For the intelligent party you folks sure are dumb at times.
