After discussing disgraced former FTX CEO and Democrat megadonor Sam Bankman-Fried's legal woes, Rogan and Baker broached the subject of the social fallout generated by Democrats' top donor, whom Baker deemed a "vampire."
Rogan noted that he had spoken to Republican Gov. Greg Abbott about George Soros and that Abbott explained the billionaire's modus operandi, particularly as it regards exerting influence over American law and politics.
"It's f***ing terrifying," said Rogan. "He donates money to [someone] very progressive, very leftist — whether it's a DA or whatever politician — and then funds someone who's even further left than them to go against them, and just keeps moving it along."
"He's playing like a global game ... and he enjoys doing it," Rogan added.
TheBlaze reported this week on revelations that Soros' nonprofit system, the Soros Network, has funneled nearly $21 billion into left-leaning politics since 2000.
Open Secrets indicated that Soros was the "top individual super PAC donor for the 2022 midterm election," having contributed at least $126 million to leftist super PACS in the last election cycle.
The Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund indicated in a recent report that, as of June 2022, the U.S. had "at least 75 Soros-Backed social justice prosecutors, supported through campaign dollars and/or Soros-funded progressive infrastructure groups."
The LELDF report claimed that in 2021, the 75 Soros-backed "social justice prosecutors" who now represent "1 in 5 Americans or more than 72 million people" oversaw "more than 40% (9,000+) of the approximately 22,500 homicides in the US occurred in areas."
The report further alleged that "these prosecutors' charging and plea deal decisions, sentencing recommendations, and trial strategies" have been a major part of the perpetuation of and rise in crime in the cities they oversee.
Among Soros' beneficiaries is Philadelphia's impeached Democrat District Attorney Larry Krasner, whom the state's House Select Committee on Restoring Law and Order accused of contributing "to a catastrophic rise in violent crime at the expense of public safety."
Baker responded to Rogan, saying, "[Soros] understood early on where you wanted to seize power."
The former CIA agent intimated that it is a popular misconception that senators or similar politicians are the most influential power-brokers. Instead, "it's the DAs and it's the state-level politicians. That's where real change occurs and where things can happen."
Rogan interjected, suggesting it is at this level of politics — where Soros appears most engaged — where "real corrosion" can have a significant impact.
"That's what's scary: It seems like he funds corrosion. It's like he wants these cities to fall apart. He wants crime to flourish," said Rogan. "It's almost like he's an evil person in a Batman movie."
In an apparent effort to bolster the villain claim, Baker noted that Soros "made his real fortune by almost busting the bank of England. ... He's not out there for truth and justice."
Facing criticism over his alleged hand in destabilizing American cities, Soros penned an opinion piece in July displacing blame.
In the piece, he claimed that recent crime spikes in Democrat-controlled cities weren't the result of his beneficiaries' failures but of "a disturbing rise in mental illness among young people ... a pullback in policing in the wake of public criminal justice reform protests, and increases in gun trafficking."
