Glenn Beck Spreads Lies About George Soros

George Soros has been attacked by Glenn Beck and accused of directly helping the Nazis to murder Jews in Hungary. If this statement sounds absurd, it is because there is absolutely no truth to the horrendous lies that Beck has attempted to spread about Soros for quite some time. Beck’s ridiculous attempt to discredit Soros and destroy his reputation includes accusations about Soros’ allegedly anti-Semitic behavior from when he was a teenager living in Hungary during the Second World War. Beck was so determined to take down Soros that he dedicated three one-hour long episodes on his Fox News show to detailing how he thinks Soros is an anti-Semite. Although it is not surprising that Beck attacked George Soros, the extent to which he dedicated television air time to attempt to disparage a single person is a bit extreme even for Beck.

The basic premise of Beck’s fabricated allegations against Soros is that Soros was present during the Nazi occupation of Hungary during World War II. Beck argues that Soros was complicit in the mass murder of Jews in the Holocaust and opposes the establishment of Israel as a pro-Jewish state. This baseless statements apparently stem from the fact that Soros was present during the Holocaust in Hungary. His family was able to survive the Nazi occupation of the country based on forged documents and a lot of creativity on the part of his farther. Despite Beck’s extremely reckless and ridiculous statements about Soros’ political and religious sentiments, there is absolutely no evidence that Soros ever supported the Nazis.

George Soros – Forbes

The reality of Soros’ personal story is that he fled the Nazi occupation of Hungary and landed at the London School of Economics. The unfounded hatred and racism upon which the Nazis ruled were exactly the types of problems that Soros sought to avoid. He has never indicated that he supported any policies of the Nazi Party or wanted to assist them in any way. Since studying in London, Soros eventually ended up in the U.S. to begin an incredible career in finance and investing. Most of us know that Soros would go own to become famously wealthy and very politically active.

Since George Soros gained success and acclaim for his investing career, he has used his massive resources to fight for freedom around the world. Even though Beck has tried to spin that Soros supports communist regimes, Soros was actually one of the most active private individuals in helping to take down communist governments. In fact, Soros helped to fund revolutions against communist and post-communist regimes in Europe. Soros is not afraid to speak openly about his political views and educate the public about the problems with communist governments.

While most people understand that Beck does not have a leg to stand on when it comes to trying to hold himself out as a serious political commentator. Even though many people understand that Beck is just an inflammatory entertainer, the fact that his network allowed this type of character assassination to air is alarming to say the least.

Securus Technologies achievements and timely exposé on Global Tel Link GTL

People tend to choose the services of a company that has been in existence for long, leaving out new businesses. Trust is the main reason here. The clients, having tried and enjoyed their services over time will find it a little difficult to turn their focus on the new kids on the block. Securus Technologies is one such company that has been in existence for long, having its services reaching throughout the United States. Using technology, the company has always been the leader in bringing solutions in the civil and criminal justice, for public safety, corrections and monitoring. It first started its operations as T-Netix Inc, under the name Tele – Matix Corporation, which would later merge with Star, Ventures Inc in 1988.

In 1992, T-Netix Inc would then acquire assets of some two companies, alongside obtaining some eight firms that were also associated with inmate telecommunication. His endeavors of acquiring affiliated companies and the need to become the leading inmate telecommunication top dog in the entire US, would not stop there, as it soon obtains some other firms, Evercom Systems Inc included. However, the company wasn’t so big to be enveloped by the giant H.I.G Capital, a Miami-based Equity Firm, and formed the now Securus Technologies. Since then, the company has flourished, thanks to the hard work and dedication of its employees.
In a statement published on PR Newswire, Chief Executive Officer of Securus America Technology Richard A. Smith “Rick” said that referring to each other as associate other than boss and subordinate relationship has greatly influenced the flow of ideas from bottoms up and forth, and a sense of ownership of the organization. As one of its achievements recently in June 2016, on behalf of Louisiana Public Service Commission (PSC) did an exposé against another inmate telecommunication provider Global Tel link (GTL), representing the first in a series of other offences the company continues to do.
According to the PR Newswire article, it found GTL culpable of
1. Unauthorized programming their telephone clocks, adding up to 36 sec after the actual end of a call
2. Overrating the call costs, against the PSC rate caps
3. Billing single calls twice
4. Deliberate and unlawful overcharging clients

Olympic Valley Incorporation Struggle Finally Comes To An End

Benjamin Spillman from the Reno Gazette Journal describes the outline of the Olympic Valley and Andy Wirth’s uphill battle with both the forces of nature and a political take over in the form of incorporation.

Andy Wirth, CEO of Squaw Valley ski resort as well as Alpine Meadows has been in opposition of the incorporation since the beginning. His number one focus has always been to improve the community within which he himself lives.

By giving back to the community and the environment he hopes to improve the lives of residents and their business’s. Alongside his busy CEO position, Andy Wirth finds time to pursue his other passion which is philanthropy. Being the CEO of the Squaw Valley ski resort his main focus has been to promote the area and make it one of the most popular winter ski resorts.

This has been achieved since the completion of the ski resorts renovation which was estimated at a staggering $70 million. This put Squaw Valley on the map as one of the top ski resorts in the country.

Andy Wirth has had over 25 years of on hand experience when it comes to running resorts. He first started out as a backcountry and wilderness ranger and completed his education at the Colorado State University before going onto University of Edinburgh in Scotland. After the completion of formal education he went onto work as an intern at the Steamboat Ski and Resort Corporation.

Here he remained for over 20 years and continuously worked his way through the marketing side of the company. In 2010 he moved on to becoming the CEO of Squaw Valley which was run by the Cushing family at the time.

The Olympic Valley has been through a tough 4 years as snow fall was scarce due to a drought plaguing the area around Lake Tahoe and a incorporation battle has been fought at the same time. The incorporation battle was mainly fought by Andy Wirth as he invested large capital.

His opposition for the incorporation was due to the threat of higher taxes and less public services being offered. These taxes would apply to both residents and their business’s. Andy Wirth succeeded in this endeavour and his company Squaw Valley Ski Holdings LLC can now focus on the development of both commercial and residential properties in the area.

This growth and development of the Olympic Valley area can only be beneficial to the business’s there as this would allow for more tourist traffic and other economies.

The incorporation was officially stalled and according to Andy Wirth residents can now work together in unison to improve the area.

Crystal Hunt started paying her acting dues when she competed in beauty shows as a child.

Venezuela Experiencing the Negative Effects of Socialism

An economic collapse is currently taking place in the South American nation Venezuela, according to Open Corporates. Over the course of recent months, the nation has began to experience a lot of economic distress. This economic distress has been caused by socialist policies in both economics and politics. For nearly two decades the country has been ruled by socialist President Hugo Chavez and his successor Nicolas Maduro. The nation has long had policies which entailed nationalizing all industries, adopting price controls and participating in excess government spending. All of these policies have created a shortage of resources and have therefore greatly reduced the quality of life for all of Venezuela’s citizens. Now the citizens of Venezuela are now beginning to experience the long term effects of socialist economic policies.
In Venezuela there has been a massive food and water shortage which has made the government enact rations. These rations are therefore providing a very limited supply of basic needs to the people and therefore people are unable to be fed adequately. As a result, people have resorted to hunting animals so that they can get proper nourishment. Expert Velasquez Figueroa also said there is also inadequate medical care as many people are dying in the decrepit hospitals and where medicine is only available on the black market. What is making things even worse is the hyperinflation of the currency which has seen a steep decline in value by up to 93%. With all of these factors, Venezuelans are learning that there needs to be changes in economic policy in order for their well being and quality of life to be restored.

The Revolutionary Whistleblower Program that is Policing the Financial Sector

The Great Depression of 2007/2008 exposed the rot in the financial industry of the United States. Many financial institutions were forced to seek bailouts from the government. Falsified records and dishonest dealings are some of the aspects that characterized the financial sector. Congress moved swiftly to restore the reputation of the financial industry by enacting the Dodd-Frank Act in 2010 whose primary goal was to protect consumer rights and police the financial sector. The Act is arguably one of the most vital reforms of U.S. financial sector. The Dodd-Frank Act created a unique whistleblower program that offers important employment protections and avenues for individuals to report potential abuses of federal securities laws to SEC.

Labaton Sucharow happened to be the first law firm to react to the historical legislation. The firm established a practice specifically focusing on defending and representing SEC whistleblowers in courts. Labaton is one of the leading providers of securities litigation platform. Its Whistleblower Representation Practice manages a highly trained and talented team of investigators, forensic accountants, and financial analysts.

Jordan A. Thomas, who previously served as the Assistant Chief Litigation Counsel and Assistant Director of SEC Division of Enforcement, leads the practice. Jordan is one of the pioneers in the creation of Whistleblower Program. In addition, he was instrumental in the drafting of the proposed legislation as well as final implementation rules.

Responsibilities of SEC under the Whistleblower Program

The rules of the whistleblower program require SEC to pay worthy whistleblowers 10-30 percent of the collected monetary sanctions due to a successful SEC implementation action or other actions whose sanctions surpassed $1 million. If the above threshold is achieved, eligible whistleblowers may benefit from other additional awards that rely on monetary sanctions collected from the implementation of actions that are brought by other law enforcement and regulatory organizations. The Dodd-Frank Act protects employees from discriminations or punishment from their employers following their decision to report their issues to the SEC.

A whistleblower pockets $17 million from SEC

A former company worker is set to receive $17 million from SEC for providing information that helped the agency to progress in its investigation. According to Andrew Ceresney, SEC enforcement chief, the information offered by the whistleblower helped the agency to come up with substantial evidence within a short period. The award happens to be the second biggest since the whistleblower program was created five years ago. Whistleblowers are likely to receive awards if their information leads to a successful implementation action.
