It seems that the European "refugee" crisis is perhaps not so much a natural "crisis" as a deliberate attempt to use human misery as a tool to overturn government policy. Breitbart reports:
Billionaire investor George Soros has confirmed he wants to bring down Europe’s borders, following the accusation made last week by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.
Last week, Mr Orban accused Mr Soros – who was born in Hungary – of deliberately encouraging the migrant crisis.
“This invasion is driven, on the one hand, by people smugglers, and on the other by those (human rights) activists who support everything that weakens the nation-state,” Mr Orban said.
“This Western mindset and this activist network is perhaps best represented by George Soros.”
Mr Soros has now issued an email statement to Bloomberg Business, claiming his foundations help “uphold European values”, while Mr Oban’s actions in strengthening the Hungarian border and stopping a huge migrant influx “undermine those values.”
“His plan treats the protection of national borders as the objective and the refugees as an obstacle,” Mr Soros added. “Our plan treats the protection of refugees as the objective and national borders as the obstacle.”
. . .
George Soros is a firm backer of transnational bodies such as the European Union, and his Open Society Foundation (OSF) provides assistance for pro-migration activists. He is well-known for his support for “progressive” causes such as the Centre for American Progress, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Have you seen any mention of this in the mainstream media? I certainly haven't . . . but I'm not in the least surprised, either by their deafening silence, or by Soros' using the refugees' misery for his own political ends. He almost certainly doesn't really give a damn about them, probably seeing them as nothing more than a tool to be used to apply pressure to get his preferred policies approved. As soon as that's happened, he'll probably drop the refugees like a hot potato, because he'll have no further use for them.
I'd love to know how much Mr. Soros is doing to ensure a progressive/left-wing victory in next year's US presidential election. I suspect it involves billions of dollars, at the very least, and a great many organizations overtly or covertly sponsored and/or controlled by him and his 'fellow travelers'. In the light of what he's doing in Europe, I also wonder how much of the current illegal alien influx into this country is actively supported by him and those like him. I suspect they're behind a great deal of it.
