Thor Halvorssen Reveals His View On The U.S. Presidential Election

Deciding on a candidate to vote for or provide funding for is something millions of Americans across the nation are looking to do during the upcoming Presidential elections and often look to cable news channels for some advice. Human rights activist Thor Halvorssen has recently looked to provide his own views and experiences of how socialism in its many forms can affect a nation in light of the rising support seen for Democrat candidate Bernie Sanders.

Halviorssen appeared on Fox Business show “The Intelligence Report” to provide his first hand knowledge of socialism and the rise of Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders in an interview with host Trish Regan. The rise in support seen for the Sanders campaign has caused concern in some quarters and led Trish Regan to state she does not believe the supporters of the Independent Senator really understand what socialism is. In response, Thor Halvorssen revealed the true definition of socialism and went on to explain the differences that can be seen between the different uses of socialism as a political ideology.

Thor Halvorssen has seen socialism in action across a number of different countries, including his native Venezuela and many northern European nations. Halvorssen is the founder of the Oslo Freedom Forum and explained to Trish Regan his belief that some socialist policies can benefit the people of a nation when they form some aspects of a more mainstream political landscape. Halvorssen believes problems can occur for a nation when socialism becomes the dominant ideology and is not merged with other political ideologies; in his home nation of Venezuela Thor Halvorssen has seen socialism used as a mask for political leaders looking to benefit themselves instead of the people of his nation. Despite his criticism of some aspects of socialism Halvorssen revealed to a shocked Trish Regan that he still supported Sanders bid for the Presidency because of problems he sees with other candidates for the U.S. Presidency.

Kyle Bass Looks to Eliminate Drug Patents

Up until this time Kyle Bass was best known as a hedge fund manager, but with this attempt to eliminate some name brand drug patents. Bass organized and represents a coalition of concerned parties who are in favor of affordable drugs. They are specifically after the drug Tecfidera dimethyl fumarate which is used in the treatment of multiple sclerosis.

The group went before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) and it seems like the prognosis of demonstrating the claims of the patent can’t be patented is pretty likely. Kyle Bass is challenging the use of 480 Mg of dimenthyl furnarate to treat MS as is mentioned on U.S. Patent No. 8,399,514. The patent is due to run out in 2028, but the PTAB found the evidence presented by the group very convincing to treat autoimmune diseases they needed to arrive at the appropriate dosage of the drug.

This is not the first attempt that Kyle Bass has made in this arena. In fact last year the PTAB denied a separate petition filed by Bass last year. That only led the group to ramp up their game and build a case that was far more compelling and will have a larger chance of success. Biogen is the company that currently holds the patent and is under fire from the Bass coalition.

Hayman Capital Management, L.P. is the company that Kyle Bass founded. Based in Dallas, Texas his hedge fund has benefited significantly from his skill in reading financial markets. Bass successfully profited from his keen prediction that he could guess correctly the way that the subprime mortgage crisis in 2008 would affect the economy. He was able to do this by buying credit default swaps on subprime securities. Various investment banks issued the subprime securities and Bass read it right and profited for himself and his investors.

The European sovereign-debt crisis is another area that Bass properly predicted the economic ramifications that would happen. His expectations of economic trends in Argentina and Japan have also allowed Bass to build a profitable hedge fund. However there is plenty of criticism of some of Bass’ ethical choices when supporting certain leadership groups that do not practice human rights.

When it comes to Kyle Bass and his patent elimination, things seem to be looking good. The European Patent Office revoked the EU Patent held by Biogen on 480 mg doses of dimethyl fumarate, so it may be only a matter of time until the U.S. follows suit. Biogen has stated that it will appeal the decision but the outlook does not look bright for them. The Coalition for Affordable Drugs, which Kyle is running has filed 33 petitions against the same patent as of October of 2015.

The World Of Politics

John Kasich was handed a large contribution and, it seems that it is not going over well with some people. Scott Bessent and Stanley Drucknmiller, who are both George Soros fund managers contributed roughly $488,375 to him. Soros is no stranger when it comes to spending his own money on many organizations. Groups like MoveOn.Org, ACORN and some Parliamentary Democrats had benefited tremendously. The Political Action Committee for Hilary Clinton also received a princely sum of eight million dollars.
With all the bantering between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz about the border, he is totally against their solution. George Soros thinks that we all must acknowledge that we have an open society. Kasich who seems like the level headed one for the Republicans, seems like he have hit the high note with Soros and his people. But the question remains, is this a bad thing? All eyes are on Ohio now where Kasich is expected to win that state in the primaries.

How George Soros Funded Latino Voters

George Soros is a liberal who plays a big part in the business world. He has a lot of money and money that he is willing to donate to the causes that he supports. Because of this, he is the funding factor behind the reasons why many new Latino citizens are now voting.

As a liberal, Soros has a political agenda concerning the vote not going to republicans. He wants to make sure that all of the voters that he supports are also supporting the democratic party. He sees that the can touch the Latino voters in a nerve and he wants to hit that. He wants them to know that they should vote for the Democratic party and that this will make them have more opportunities and a better life. This is the way that he is targeting them and the way that he is working to get their votes.

With all of the problems that come from some of the most popular right-wing candidates, like Donald Trump, Latinos should be worried about what will happen if a Republican does take office. Soros wants to make sure that this does not happen and, according to this New York Times article, he is putting in around 15 million dollars to help get the Latino vote. They could be a last chance for the Democrats and could end up being the reason that the country gets a president who is fair and who cares about all of the citizens instead of just privileged white ones.

By donating 15 million dollars, Soros will help with the effort that comes with educating and pulling the Latino voters out to the polls on election day. He is concerned that many of them do not actually know that they should be voting and he wants them to know that they can vote. He is making it easier for Latinos to vote and he is changing the way that they are educated about the vote. With the money that he has donated, he expects to double the Latino vote for the election year.

George Soros was born in Hungary, but he is a strong political supporter of the United States. He has worked as an investor, has written books, and has been a very open liberal political supporter. He has worked on various philanthropical missions and has been able to provide the people who follow him with the information that they need to make sure they make the right political decisions. Most notably, he worked to make 1 billion dollars in a single day. He did this by utilizing black Wednesday and earning as much money as possible on an original 10 billion dollar investment.

The 75th Anniversary of that event will occur later this year, on December 7, 2016.

A New Statue

As a component of this year’s Pearl Harbor anniversary events, the U.S. Navy Memorial Foundation, a nonprofit organizations, plans to erect a statue at the Pearl Harbor Memorial site in Hawaii according to a kusi.com article. U.S. Money Reserve’s new commemorative coins relating to the Pearl Harbor attack helped to fund this project.

The Foundation President and CEO, a retired Naval officer, praised the commemorative coins as a fine tribute to members of the Greatest Generation. His organization appreciated the financial support provided by customers of U. S. Money Reserve.

A Timely Work of Art

The statue by sculptor Stanley Bleifeld depicts a seaman standing beside a naval gunney sack with his hands in his pockets staring into the distance. The Lone Sailor pays a timeless tribute to the dedication of individual sailors who spent long periods of time at sea during World War II. It also seeks to pay respect to sailors serving on U. S. Navy vessels today.

The statue consists of 1700 pounds of bronze mounted on steel. The designer included metal from the U.S.S. Arizona as a part of the underlying base of the statue. During the early morning attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, warplanes dealt a devastating blow to the United States Navy, which had ordered many battle ships to anchor at Pearl Harbor, the home of the Pacific Fleet.

Random Acts Of Kindness And Skout Online Networking

Skout just recently conducted a fascinating survey that was about how people perceive kindness in their lives. The basic principle behind their survey was to get an idea of how we as a society feel about doing or receiving random acts of kindness. The reason behind the survey was to celebrate the International Random Acts Of Kindness Week. Skout wanted to remind its users about this week of kindness, and they wanted to share with the world how kindness is still relevant and important in our busy lives. Even when we are busy and on our phones all the time we can still find a few minutes to be kind to a stranger. We’ll talk more about the survey results that we published on Uloop’s website, and we’ll discuss what it’s like to use Skout to make friends.

Survey Results Are In

The survey results were published on Uloop’s website in hopes that the rest of the world would see how important kindness is to all of us. Kindness makes us feel special. If you see a random act of kindness taking place in front of you, it makes you feel like doing something kind for someone else. We see it, and we want to be part of it. Kindness feels nice to do as well. Have you ever committed a random act of kindness for a stranger?

The survey from Skout indicated some interesting facts about our society that you may not have already known. The survey group consisted of approximately 2,700 individuals out of the millions of people that use Skout to network and make new friends. The majority of the people surveyed for this project were college students, so keep in mind how busy and possibly stressful their lives are when you read the survey results. The survey results showed that 93 percent of the users in the project had already done something kind for a stranger without planning it out.

George Soros Apportions Blame As The European Union Moves Closer To Collapse

Since the first days of its establishment the European Union seems to have lurched from one problem to the next, particularly in terms of powerful leaders looking to force their will on the continent. In the 20th century, British leader Margaret Thatcher proved a thorn in the side of Europe, but her strong negotiating style pales alongside the issues currently being created by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Hedge fund icon George Soros has recently been providing his opinion on the crisis affecting Europe in an interview with his own Website, which explains the bleak future he believes lies in store for the continent.
George Soros has enjoyed a successful career that belies the difficult journey he embarked upon after surviving the Holocaust as a prisoner in a Nazi concentration camp. Soros has been providing his opinion on the current refugee crisis that is affecting Europe in a negative way by looking at all the angles of the problem, including comparing it to his own journey as a refugee to study in London and begin his financial career in New York. The European Union will face a major issue with rising debts and a population crisis being caused by the refugees flooding into Europe from Syria.

Russia has recently taken a lead in Syria, which George Soros believes has been a major miscalculation on the part of European and global leaders. The initial reasons for the Russian entry into the Syrian conflict remain unclear, but the need for a cautious approach in the fight against ISIS is tempered by the needs of Russia to avert its own financial collapse. Rising debts and European Union economic sanctions will combine to cause Vladimir Putin major problems in 2016 and 2017, which Soros fears the Russian leader will try to avert by driving more refugees into Europe.

The European Union is not only facing the issue of a rising refugee problem, but also sees the major nations of Europe looking to position themselves prior to the expected collapse of the single currency Euro zone. The British government are another cause for concern for George Soros, who believes a British exit from the European Union will occur and add to the economic woes of the continent. Soros explains British industrial leaders fear forcing the hand of the government and electorate in favor of the Union because of the backlash they could face if the planned referendum returns the expected no vote.

All these factors are combining in the view of George Soros to provide the perfect storm for an economic and social collapse within the European Union. Not only will Europe face the issues of collapse, but the shockwaves will negatively affect the global economy.
