Top Hillary donor Soros gleefully predicted violence in US streets: 'Yes, Yes, Yes,' followed by government crackdown and constrained liberty. Soros says US at 'end of an era,' had been motor of world economy for 25 years but 'it's finished,' 'can't continue.' Americans must 'adjust their lifestyle,' consume less, pay more for energy. Global warming requires big investment, US must have carbon tax. It will be 'painful'

1/31/16, "George Soros donates $8 million to boost Hillary," Politico, Ken Vogel. Soros is also a Clinton Foundation donor
"Soros has donated or committed more than $25 million to boost Hillary Clinton and other Democratic candidates and causes." 7/27/16, Politico

"As anger rises, riots on the streets of American cities are inevitable. Yes, yes, yes,” he says, almost gleefully. The response to the unrest could be more damaging than the violence itself. It will be an excuse for cracking down and using strong-arm tactics to maintain law and order, which, carried to an extreme, 

could bring about

a repressive political system, 

a society where individual liberty is much more constrained, which would

be a break with the tradition of the United States.”"...(4th parag. from end)

Added: Oct. 10, 2008 George Soros interview on PBS about financial crisis:

Oct. 10, 2008, George Soros interview on Bill Moyers Journal, PBS

"GEORGE SOROS: We are heading for undoubtedly very difficult times. This is the end of an era. And this is a fact....The sort of period where America could actually, for instance, run ever increasing current account deficits. We could consume, at the end, six and a half percent more than we are producing. That has come to an end

BILL MOYERS: So what do we do now?...

GEORGE SOROS: Well, deal with the mortgage problem. Reduce foreclosures. Recapitalize the banks. And then work on a better world order where we work together to resolve problems that confront humanity like global warming. And I think that dealing with global warming will require a lot of investment. 
 
You see, for the last 25 years the world economy, the motor of the world economy that has been driving it was consumption by the American consumer who has been spending more than he has been saving, all right? Than he's been producing. So that motor is now switched off. It's finished. It's run out of — can't continue. You need a new motor. And we have a big problem. Global warming. It requires big investment. And that could be the motor of the world economy in the years to come...

Instead of consuming, building an electricity grid, saving on energy, rewiring the houses, adjusting your lifestyle where
energy has got to cost more

until it you introduce those new things.

So it will be painful. But at least we will survive and not cook....You must have, in my opinion...a tax on carbon emissions. But that is unacceptable politically. So we are going to have cap and trade."...
