George Soros as white hat political activist

Published / by rattlin / Leave a Comment

George Soros has made a career out of finding an exploding in efficiencies in financial markets. This is a skill that’s very similar to what hackers do with computer systems. The essential ingredient in both pursuits is finding in efficiencies or exploitable opportunities and then taking full advantage of them to one’s own benefit.

Recently, George Soros has undertaken a major campaign to overhaul the entire us criminal justice system from the ground up. The strategy he’s pursuing involves the replacement of hardline conservative law and order candidates with more progressive ones who are dedicated to erasing to disparities that often exist between whites and minorities.

Another one of George Soros’s long-term goals has been the elimination of all laws, practices and procedures that make up the so-called war on drugs. Soros has viewed the war on drugs as one of the prime movers in the incredibly disproportionate incarceration rates seen within the United States. The United States has just 5% of the world’s population yet houses over 25% of the world’s criminal population. Soros has long viewed this is a fundamental injustice, especially in light of the fact that blacks, just 12% of the U.S. population, represent over half of those incarcerated in some state and federal institutions.

One of the ways in which Soros has gone about attempting to bring forth this radical transformation of the U.S. criminal justice system is through replacing local prosecutors with more liberal or progressive-minded individuals. Soros has successfully implemented this strategy from Florida to Colorado, ensuring that major cities in those states now count on the services of a far more progressive-minded prosecutor’s office.

One such case was the upset of incumbent Jeff Ashton in the Orlando County, Florida prosecutorial race in 2016. Ashton was a longtime incumbent, serving in the capacity of county prosecutor for over 10 years. Unfortunately, Ashton had also established a track record of strong law and order policies that ultimately led to highly disproportionate prosecution and conviction of minority offenders. Many of these cases were the result of simple drug possession or other drug charges that did not involve any violent crime at all. Read his profile at Business Insider.

On the other hand, Ashton’s competitor, Aramis Ayala, was running as the first black woman prosecutor in the state of Florida’s history. She ran on a ticket of progressive criminal justice reform, vowing to reduce the disparities between whites and minorities regarding rates of conviction and being charged with crimes. However, Ayala had one major problem. She had essentially no money.

George Soros stepped in through one of his charitable foundations, infusing Ayala’s campaign with over 1.2 million dollars and allowing her to run massive, around-the-clock television ads describing her progressive vision for the Orlando County prosecutor’s office. Soros also provided high level campaign expertise that allowed Ayala to devise an effective strategy to combat her entrenched opponent. Learn more about his profile at Forbes.com.

The plan worked. Ayala defeated Ashton in an upset landslide, becoming the first African American woman prosecutor in the state of Florida.

Jason Halpern: Property Developer

Jason Halpern honed his skills in property management through his family’s enterprise, JMH Development. Currently, the firm has 500 million dollar investment projects in New York. They include an elegant apartment on 184 Kent which is the renovation of a warehouse, and a Cobble Hill project in Brooklyn for eight townhouses. Under Jason’s leadership, JMH has become the leading real estate firm in the United States specializing in commercial and residential properties. Jason manages the company to produce quality, unique, well stationed and permanent structures across the country.

Jason Halpern Real Estate Partner of Aloft

In 2014, Jason Halpern announced the opening of a 235 room Aloft South Beach hotel in Miami Beach. JMH redesigned Motel Ankara to build Aloft South Beach in collaboration with Madden Real Estate Ventures. The structure which was the architecture of ADD incorporation includes an eight-floor tower. The launch of Aloft South Beach marked the beginning of the first new hotels in the region since 2009. Aloft has 360 square feet rooms, giving it an upper hand among competitors whose rooms are significantly smaller. JMH’s construction of the hotel was a brave and calculated risk considering that Miami Beach had a shifty and unpredictable real estate climate since the early 2000s.

Aloft South Beach is conveniently placed to offer visitors a priceless view and access to the waters. It is surrounded by Collins Canal and Lake Pancoast and is one building away from the waterfront of Miami Beach. Other nearby attractions include a couple of art galleries, a convention center, boutiques, restaurants, and world-class nightclubs. The hotel houses a round-the-clock fitness area, roof deck lounge, a conference room and an entertainment space that accommodates live shows. Before the opening of the hotel, Jason Halpern stated that restoring Ankara was a significant milestone for his business.

Jason’s Family

He was enthusiastic to begin operating the hotel and was positive it would serve visitors impeccably. Jason has a reputation of restoring historic spaces and has built a good rapport with locals in the towns that he works. Apart from real estate, Jason is passionate about philanthropy and supports courses in health and property development for the less privileged.
