    SOROS PLANT IN THE WHITE HOUSE

    AUTHOR IANE L. GRUBER PUBLISHED DATE:NOVEMBER 25, 2019

    Where the hell were Trump’s advisors? Didn’t they research and vet individuals before hiring them for positions in his administration? If THIS writer can find THIS information, surely those who work for Trump can, too. Are they working FOR Trump or AGAINST him?

    If there was ANY vetting, how in the world did Soros’ buddy, Fiona Hill, become Deputy Assistant to the President and Senior Director for European and Russian Affairs on his National Security Council staff? She worked for Soros for six years. THAT tells you all you need to know about Hill’s political leanings.

    SCHIFF CALLED DR. FIONA HILL TO TESTIFY ON DAY #5

    Schiff first interviewed Hill behind closed doors (excluded GOP House members) and expected her to provide damning testimony against Trump at the televised show trial. It turns our she may have hurt this impeachment charade more than she helped it. Nevertheless, Liberals are praising her as courageous, a hero and a true patriot.

    Hill was appointed to her position in the White House in the first quarter of 2017 and resigned on July 18, 2019 after she help set the Ukraine Hoax in full motion. [This scheme started no later than March 2019.] That’s over two years of spying on and damage of our populist president and his plans for improving America’s foreign policy.

    America’s foreign policy was in shambles after eight years of the Obama Administration’s cow towing to our enemies and literally giving billions of Americans’ money to Iran so they could build nuclear weapons.*

    FIONA HILL’S RESUME IS CLEAR: SHE WORKED FOR SOROS

    George Soros is founder and chair of the Open Society Institute, where Fiona Hill worked from 2000-2006.
    The sickly-sweet website portrays Open Society as just trying to help people. Ha!

    Make no mistake about it. Anything and everything that Soros funds is designed to weaken the United State of America, destroy our Bill of Rights and the US Constitution, to pave the way for Globalism where no individual will have any autonomy.

    Soros-Funded ACLU to Illegal Aliens: ‘Speak Up’ Against Border Patrol for Thanksgiving

    The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), partially funded by billionaire George Soros, has issued a public service announcement for illegal aliens to “speak up” against Border Patrol agents for Thanksgiving.
    In a post to social media, the ACLU tells illegal aliens traveling throughout the United States for the Thanksgiving holiday, “If Border Patrol boards your bus or train, you can speak up for yourself and your fellow passengers.”

    The announcement reads that illegal aliens can tell Border Patrol — if the bus they are traveling on is searched — that “this is a violation” of their “Constitutional rights” and that they have the “right to remain silent” and do not “have to consent to a search.”

    The ACLU also asks that illegal aliens record their encounters with Border Patrol agents and send them directly to the open borders organization.

    “Send your photos, videos, and stories of Border Patrol encounters on buses and train to nonmigraonbuses@aclu.org,” the announcement reads.

    As Breitbart News has chronicled, the ACLU is the leading open borders organization that fights in federal court to ensure that national immigration laws are not enforced and that deportations for illegal aliens are halted. One of the group’s recent lawsuits demanded that American taxpayers provide “mental health services” for border crossers.

    Today, there are anywhere between 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living across the U.S. American taxpayers are forced to subsidize at least $132 billion every year to pay for housing, medical services, and public welfare for illegal aliens.

    George Soros’ Giant Globalist Footprint in Ukraine’s Turmoil [Emphasis mine]
    Written by William F. Jasper

    Billionaire investor/activist George Soros has a giant footprint in Ukraine. Similar to his operations in dozens of other nations, he has, over the past couple of decades, poured tens of millions of dollars into Ukrainian non-governmental organizations (NGOs), ostensibly to assist them in transforming their country into a more “open” and “democratic” society.

    Many of the participants in Kiev’s “EuroMaidan” demonstrations were members of Soros-funded NGOs and/or were trained by the same NGOs in the many workshops and conferences sponsored by Soros’ International Renaissance Foundation (IRF), and his various Open Society institutes and foundations. The IRF, founded and funded by Soros, boasts that it has given “more than any other donor organization” to “democratic transformation” of Ukraine.

    The International Renaissance Foundation’s Annual Report for 2012, the latest available, states that, “IRF provided UAH 63 million in funding to civil society organizations — more than any other donor organization working in this field in Ukraine.” The “UAH” reference used above refers to the Ukraine Hryvnia, Ukraine’s currency, which is worth about 0.11 $US, or 11 cents in U.S. currency. That translates into roughly $6.7 million that IRF provided to Ukrainian groups in 2012; not a huge sum, by comparison to many other political and social campaigns, but more than merely “significant.” In the cash-starved Ukraine, Soros’s dollars go a long way toward seducing and co-opting all legitimate political opposition into the Soros-approved “progressive” camp.

    According to the IRF’s own website, this one Soros conduit has funneled over $100 million into Ukrainian NGOs over the years:

    Over the period from 1990 to 2010 the International Renaissance Foundation provided more than $100 million in support to numerous Ukrainian non-government organizations (NGOs), community groups, academic and cultural institutions, publishing houses, etc.

    The IRF website and annual reports make clear that the Soros funds are targeted at promoting Ukrainian “partnership” with, and “integration” into, the EU. Soros has provided many millions more through his other “philanthropic” spigots. However, Soros’ influence in Ukraine extends far beyond the traceable funding he provides to activist Ukrainian NGOs, academics and think tanks. Equally, if not more, important is the influence he exerts on global opinion through his massive propaganda network (including Project Syndicate and other Soros megaphones) and his direct personal contacts with presidents, prime ministers, parliamentarians, central bankers, media executives, and Wall Street titans.

    In a February 26 column he penned for Project Syndicate that was carried by hundreds of newspapers and websites, Soros argued that the EU and the IMF must initiate a new Marshall Plan for Ukraine, meaning, of course, transfers of money from EU and U.S. taxpayers to the politicians, organizations, and institutions approved by the globalist/socialist/corporatist operatives running the EU and IMF. Perhaps the key point in Soros’ essay, entitled, “Sustaining Ukraine’s Breakthrough,” is this: “Ukraine will need outside assistance that only the EU can provide: management expertise.”

    George Soros is all about management by “experts,” i.e., central planning, the hallmark of every socialist, fascist, or communist regime. In fact, he is one of the planet’s premier advocates of global central planning and control. Hence, he is a longtime fervent supporter of the United Nations, the IMF/World Bank, the WTO, global population control through the WHO and UNFPA, and virtually every other internationalist endeavor to subvert national sovereignty and advance the building of an omnipotent world government.

    His fetish with internationalism includes, especially, further enlarging and empowering the EU, which has been the prime subject of concern in books and essays by Soros, as well as many of his speeches and media interviews. Soros is a full-blown proponent of total political and economic “integration” of the EU, meaning a complete annihilation of any residual independence of the EU member states and the transfer of all substantive legislative, executive, and judicial powers to EU politicians and administrators in Brussels.

    Over the past several years Soros has been particularly emphatic in pushing for a central EU Treasury, or European Fiscal Authority (EFA), which he says is “the missing ingredient that is needed to make the euro a full-fledged currency with a genuine lender of last resort.” The European Central Bank (ECB), says Soros, has insufficient powers to do what is needed, even though he admits it has illegally usurped powers — which he applauds.

    When European Central Bank President Mario Draghi (a former Goldman Sachs vice chairman and managing director) announced on August 1, 2012 that the ECB would “do whatever it takes to preserve the euro as a stable currency,” German Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann objected, pointing out that the ECB’s powers are limited by statute. Nevertheless, Draghi forged ahead, promising that the ECB would make unlimited purchases of government bonds of indebted EU members — provided they put their countries under the control of executors from “the Troika” — the EU Commission, ECB and IMF. This is the same Troika that devastated the citizens of Cyprus last year, raiding their bank accounts to pay off the bonds that socialist politicians and Goldman Sachs had saddled them with. But Soros, whose many “human rights” fronts extol the “rule of law,” "accountability," and “transparency,” says that the lawless and unaccountable Troika does not have enough power! It must be complemented by an EFA, says he, which should exercise power over all fiscal matters.

    The IMF’s Managing Director Christine Lagarde and EU Commission President José Manuel Barroso (a “former” Maoist Communist) have already lined up a multi-billion package for Ukraine. However, many Ukrainians, all across the political spectrum, are leery of coming under the Troika’s control, and rightfully so. They do not want to trade the corruption and oppression of Yanukovych’s pro-Kremlin regime for another dictated by the EU and IMF. As we pointed out recently, even the poll commissioned by the U.S. State Department found that only 37 percent of Ukrainians favored joining the EU.

    Economist Michael Roberts describes himself on his blogsite as “a Marxist economist.” Nevertheless, Roberts is on the mark in his February 27 column in stating: “The people of Ukraine are left with Hobson’s choice: either go with KGB-led crony capitalism from Russia or go with equally corrupt pro-European ‘democrats’.” He is also correct in asserting that Ukraine’s foreign debt will soon double, if it takes IMF loans, and that the Ukrainian people will burdened with crushing debt for a generation. He writes:

    Ukraine could still stage a financial meltdown and a banking collapse. More likely, the new government will be helped over the next few months with bridging loans until the IMF deal is struck. Then the hardship for the people will really begin in earnest. Ukraine’s foreign debt is about to double as it takes on new debt from the IMF and the cost of existing dollar and euro debt jumps as the hyrvnia is devalued. This burden will be on shoulders of Ukrainians for a generation.

    Only it could double several times over, and it could burden Ukrainians for much longer than a generation; it could fasten them with debt bondage in perpetuity. Bosnian writer Andrej Nikolaidis warns Ukrainians that massive debt and grinding poverty under Troika-managed regime are to be expected. “It hardly comes as a surprise to us in former Yugoslavia,” writes Nikolaidis. “At the beginning of its dissolution, the Yugoslav foreign debt was £9.5bn; today, after all the ‘help’ we got from the troika, it's more than £107bn.” He continues:

    Bosnia today is a poor and divided country, even more so than it was back in 1992. Former soldiers, hungry and sick, are gathering and protesting. "While we were bleeding, they were stealing," says one… Some Bosnians saw their future under the Bosnian and EU flag, others under the Croatian and EU flag, and others still under the flag of The Great Serbia. Lots of flags, but only one poverty for all.

    But why must Ukraine formally join either the EU or the Kremlin-sponsored Customs Union? Are those the only options? Is it not possible for Ukraine to adopt a neutral position of independence and peaceful trade with both sides? Would not such a position be best for all concerned? From the available polling, it seems that may be the view of a plurality, if not a majority, of Ukrainians.

    Ukraine’s huge network of natural gas pipelines not only supplies much-needed Russian-produced gas to EU countries, but also is the source of vital revenues to Russia from that energy delivery system. The peoples of Russia, Ukraine, and the EU benefit from a stable, peaceful, neutral Ukraine; forcing Ukrainians into choosing one or the other camp benefits no one — except the power-mad rulers of Russia and the EU, and their globalist confreres.

    Why then, should Americans take direction from George Soros, Barack Obama, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, John McCain and other internationalist voices who insist it is Ukraine that must “choose” … but the only choice considered acceptable and legitimate to the globalist choir is for Ukraine to join the EU? Soros and his huge stable of “public intellectuals” at Project Syndicate have been flooding the global media with propaganda to that purpose. As we’ve reported previously, Project Syndicate is a project of George Soros’ Open Society Foundation that has sprouted into a network of nearly 500 newspapers in more than 150 countries with worldwide circulation of over 70 million copies. According to the syndicate’s web site, it is the largest syndication of independent commentators in the world.

    However, his great wealth, foundations, media presence, and network of activist NGOs notwithstanding, George Soros’ power and influence — in Ukraine and elsewhere — stem not so much from these oft-cited trappings of power, but from the fact that he is a player, an Insider, in the top rank of globalists who are pushing and shoving “global governance” upon the entire planet. This was formally recognized in November 2010 when Soros received the “Globalist of the Year Award” from the Canadian International Council (CIC).

    Soros' real heft derives from the fact that he is a member of the globalist power elite. First and foremost, he is a member of (and leader in and major financial supporter of) the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the premier globalist brain trust that has become the de facto governing force within the executive branch of the U.S. government and the Federal Reserve System, as well as Democrat and Republican parties, for most of the past century. His Soros Fund Management is a President’s Circle Corporate Member of the CFR and Soros himself served as a director of the CFR for a decade (1995-2004). In addition, he has been a key participant in many CFR events, including serving as presider at the CFR’s 2000 conference, “Latin America: Sustaining Economic & Political Reform,” a major sendoff promoting the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA).

    Further, he has been an activist participant with, and sometime funder of, important globalist organizations such as the Brookings Institution, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, the World Policy Conference, the World Economic Forum, the International Crisis Group, the Clinton Global Initiative, the Bilderberg Group, the U.S. State Department, the Gorbachev Foundation, the United Nations, and The Good Club (an exclusive billionaire club — whose members include Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, David Rockefeller, Ted Turner, Michael Bloomberg, and Oprah Winfrey — with the singular purpose of pushing global population control). Per the UN, Soros has served on a number of boards and advisory groups promoting a global “Tobin Tax” on financial transactions, global controls on CO2 to stop “Climate Change,” dramatically expanding the powers and funding of the International Monetary Fund, and massive global wealth redistribution through the UN’s Millennium Development Goals.

    Many of Soros’ critics on both the Left and the Right ignore these facts and treat Soros as if he is a singular earthshaking force all on his own. Focusing solely on his grant distributions, political donations, NGO networks, etc., they greatly exaggerate his importance, which can act as a diversion to distract liberty-minded advocates from focusing on the bigger picture. Taken in isolation, without his tie-ins to the CFR-globalist network of power, Soros’ global impact would be, not insignificant, but marginal. It is precisely because he is one of many super-wealthy globalists (albeit, he is far more visible and vocal than most) acting in concert that his impact is so remarkable.

    Especially noteworthy in relation to Ukraine is his key involvement in the American-Ukrainian Advisory Committee (AUAC). The Ukrainian Weekly of December 10, 1995, reported:

    The American-Ukrainian Advisory Committee met in New York on November 17-18 [1995] and reiterated its strong conviction that a resilient Ukraine is in the interest of European stability and thus also American security.

    Among other things, the AUAC called upon the U.S. Congress, USAID, the IMF, the World Bank, and the EU to shower the Ukrainian government (then run by “former” Communist Leonid Kuchma). It also encouraged the Ukrainian government to hasten “privatization” by selling “blocks of equity to private investors.” Kuchma followed their advice and, as in the former Soviet Union, his false “privatization” scheme transferred enormous state assets into the hands of select Communist Party members, creating instant billionaire oligarchs, who have dominated Ukraine ever since. Sitting on the UAUC with Soros were one-world CFR heavyweights Zbigniew Brzezinski, Henry Kissinger, Frank Carlucci, and Richard Burt. The same one-worlders are pushing the same agenda today, two decades later.

    Oligarchs R Us

    One of the billionaire oligarchs who benefitted from the Ukraine’s crony privatization program is Victor Pinchuk, with whom Soros has been very active. Soros’s foundations and The Victor Pinchuk Foundation collaborate on funding many NGOs and projects, in Ukraine and elsewhere. And Soros is a participant in Pinchuk’s Yalta European Strategy (YES) conferences, annual extravaganzas held in the Crimea at Livadia Palace, a summer retreat of Russian czars on the Black Sea. The YES confabs feature current and former presidents, prime ministers, potentates, financiers, corporate execs and celebrities.

    Besides Soros, U.S. participants have included Bill Clinton, William Daley (Obama’s White House chief of staff), Robert Zoellick (Bush’s trade representative, then president of the World Bank), Newt Gingrich, and Condoleezza Rice, to name a few — Democrats and Republicans, CFR globalists all.

    Pinchuk, a pal and funder of both Bill and Hillary Clinton, not only has generously supported Bill’s Clinton Global Initiative, but also has poured more than $13 million into the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. Another close tie is Douglas E. Schoen (CFR), a longtime Clinton operative and political consultant, whom, according to the New York Times, Mr. Pinchuk hired as an adviser in 2000 — and to whom the oligarch has been paying a tidy retainer of $40,000 per month ever since.

    One of the important ventures that Soros and Pinchuk are financing is the Ukrainian Crisis Media Center (CMC), a collaboration of Ukrainian public relations corporations and journalists that is headquartered in Kiev’s Hotel Ukraine. Ostensibly, it was created to counter the propaganda onslaught of Putin’s Russian media cartel. Much of the “independent news” we receive from Ukraine is produced by the CMC and stamped with the Pinchuk/Soros-approved brand of propaganda. That includes cheering on or papering over the fact that the “new” government in Kiev is simply the latest rotation of musical chairs, and it has ended with Pinchuk’s fellow oligarchs (virtually all of which are “former” communists) and their parliamentary blocs and political parties occupying the most important chairs (as we reported here).

    Pinchuk is a member of the Board of the Peterson Institute for International Economics and sits on the International Advisory Council of the Brookings Institution, both of which Soros has long been associated with. Another very important Soros-Pinchuk tie is their mutual connection to the famous (or infamous, as you prefer) Rothschild banking dynasty.

    In 2011, George C. Karlweis, adviser to Baron Edmond de Rothschild and his Banque Privee, revealed that it was Rothschild who provided Soros with the startup money — and, undoubtedly much (illegal) insider trading intelligence — for Soros' fabulously successful Quantum Fund.

    The full extent of Pinchuk’s connections to the Rothschild’s global private empire would require a similar revelation from an insider. That could be Jean-Pierre Saltiel, who sits on the board of Pinchuk’s Yalta European Strategy, as well as the oligarch’s global steel and metallurgy conglomerate, Interpipe, Inc. He is also a longtime adviser to the Rothschilds and the past president of Rothschild Conseil International, one of the fabled family’s major bank holding companies. Interestingly (but not so surprising), Rothschild agent Saltiel also sits on the board of PIK Group, Russia’s largest residential real estate developer, founded by Russian oligarchs Yuri Zhukov and Kirill Pisarev (and still run by Pisarev).

    Like Soros and the Rothschilds, Ukrainian oligarch Pinchuk works with and partners with a number of Russian oligarchs. And his YES summits regularly feature Putin-allied Russian oligarchs, as well as Putin-appointed Russian politicians and apparatchiks. Alfa Bank, Russia’s largest private bank, for example, is a YES sponsor. And Alfa Bank chairman, Mikhail Fridman, a Putin ally and one of Russia’s richest billionaires, sits on the CFR’s International Advisory Board and provided the funds to create the CFR’s “Russia and Russian-American Relations Lecture” program. Similarly, Rinat Akhmetov, Ukraine’s richest oligarch, a former Putin-Yanukovych supporter and ally, is now a member of the new government. He is also, along with Fridman and Soros, a YES sponsor and a business partner with Russian, EU and U.S. Insiders. What these and dozens of other similar examples indicate is that there is much more to all of the Sturm und Drang over the Ukraine-Russia-EU “crisis” than meets the eye.

    Soros gave a strong clue as to what the scripted outcome of the scenario would likely be. His solution would see Russia as a “partner,” and Angela Merkel (the "former" Communist from East Germany who now runs the unified Germany) would be the broker.

    “Germany should take the lead,” Soros said, in his February 26 Project Syndicate column cited above. “Chancellor Angela Merkel must reach out to President Vladimir Putin to ensure that Russia is a partner, not an opponent, in the Ukrainian renaissance.”

    Putin as Prod for "Convergence"

    Merkel appears to be doing just the opposite, threatening Putin with sanctions, including freezing of Russian bank accounts and restrictions on travel in the EU, unless Putin “deescalates” the situation and comes to the bargaining table. But, in reality, she is “reaching out” to Putin, and he, after providing what is deemed an appropriate level of drama, will likely come to the table and deescalate. Contrary to Russia’s current bellicose posturing, it is in the Kremlin’s interests to offload Ukraine onto the taxpayers of the EU and the United States, and it fits perfectly with their long-term strategy of “convergence” with the EU and the United States.

    Anatoliy Golitsyn, arguably the most important KGB defector to escape to the West, exposed the top-secret Soviet convergence strategy in his books New Lies for Old and The Perestroika Deception. (See here, here, and here.) Mikhail Gorbachev was making oblique reference to the ongoing reality of the convergence process when he described the EU as “the new European Soviet.” As in the transmutation described in Orwell’s Animal Farm, when it became almost impossible to tell the pigs from the men, it is now becoming all but impossible to detect any substantive differences between the ruling elites of Russia, China, the EU, and the United States. And, as the EU and the United States adopt more socialist policies and police-state measures, there is less and less distinction between our societies and the one ruled over by Putin and his Kremlin cronies. Soros, Pinchuk, Putin, Rockefeller, Rothschild, Fridman, Zhukov, Pisaerev, Akhmetov, and their ilk see themselves as the Caesars or Pharaohs in their long-schemed-for “new world order,” a term that Soros used several times in a television interview (see here) to describe his vision for the future.

    Employing the indispensible insight and analysis provided by Golitsyn and the detailed information in his books, it is difficult to view the orchestrated chaos that has been unfolding in Ukraine without recognizing unmistakable evidence that it is being directed along a pre-planned path toward EU-U.S.-Ukraine-Russian convergence. Putin’s role is to rattle the sabers menacingly enough to frighten reluctant Ukraine to join the EU, while also convincing American and EU taxpayers to be forthcoming with the foreign aid and IMF funding that will “rescue” Ukraine and avert a war. And, after things settle down, we will look around to find Putin and his oligarchs carrying on business as usual with the new Ukraine government and its oligarchs, as well as with the Obama administration and “our” oligarchs, including, of course, George Soros.

    We have seen this play many times before. In their book, The Wise Men, a hagiographic portrait of six CFR luminaries, authors Walter Isaacson (CFR) and Evan Thomas record a conversation in which top CFR insider and Marshall Plan architect John J. McCloy explained how he and fellow internationalists sold the scheme to Americans by pretending it was needed to fight Soviet Communism. Isaacson and Thomas quote McCloy:

    "People sat up and listened when the Soviet threat was mentioned," he later said. It taught him a valuable lesson: One way to assure that a viewpoint gets noticed is to cast it in terms of resisting the spread of Communism."

    And McCloy was far from the only one. Dean Acheson, another of the CFR “Wise Men,” did likewise. "Acheson," Isaacson and Thomas note, "concluded that the anti-Communist rhetoric was necessary to win support for the British package."

    Now, the point is not that there was no Soviet Communist threat at the time; the threat was definitely real. The point is that McCloy, Acheson, and their CFR cohorts had no intention of fighting communism and they knew that the Marshall Plan was certainly no anti-Communist program. In fact, it transferred billions of dollars from American taxpayers into the coffers of Europe’s socialist parties and politicians, and especially into the movements to create the European Coal and Steel Community, the nascent seed of the European Union.

    Far from being anti-Communists, McCloy, Acheson, Averill Harriman, Charles Bohlen, Robert Lovett, and other CFR engineers of the Marshall Plan were ardent anti-anti-Communists who orchestrated vicious campaigns against genuine anti-Communists such as Chiang Kai-shek, Gen. George S. Patton, Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Sen. Joseph McCarthy, Sen. Robert Taft, and Robert Welch. And, all the while McCloy and company were promoting and deploying the Marshall Plan — ostensibly to combat Communism — they were also continuing the longstanding policies of previous CFR-dominated administrations of providing enormous financial and technological aid to the Soviet Union, as this publication and the detailed books of Prof. Antony Sutton (The Best Enemy Money Can Buy, National Suicide, and his three-volume Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development) thoroughly exposed. But, no matter, the CFR “Wise Men” knew that the vast majority of Americans were anti-Communist and if they wanted to sell their program to Americans they’d have to fraudulently package it as an anti-Communist one.

    It is not mere coincidence that George Soros and other globalists are invoking the Marshall Plan and Cold War rhetoric today, and citing Putin’s revived Soviet-style militarism, to sell their latest EU-IMF convergence gambit. It has worked for them many times in the past. So, for weeks we have been treated to the incredibly odd spectacle of George Soros, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Ivo Daalder, et al, and the denizens of the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, and PBS vying for the honor of claiming Joe McCarthy’s mantle.

    Will we fall for it again? Americans would be wise to call a halt to this orchestrated rush to push Ukraine into the arms of Manuel Barroso, Mario Draghi, and Christine Lagarde — and to stick us, and the Ukrainian people, with the bill.

    Soros-Funded Lefty Media Reach More Than 300 Million Every Month
    Third of Four Parts

    Books, newspapers, radio stations, TV stations, websites and cutting edge videos. The pieces of the George Soros media empire are as diverse as the nations of the world and just as widespread. From nakedly partisan left-wing media like Think Progress, the blog for the Center for American Progress, and a TV show on MSNBC, to the supposedly impartial National Public Radio, Soros has impact on the flow of information worldwide.

    It gives him incredible influence. Every month, reporters, writers and bloggers at the many outlets he funds easily reach more than 330 million people around the globe. The U.S. Census estimates the population of the entire United States to be just less than 310 million.

    That's roughly the entire population of the United States with the population of Australia thrown in for good measure - every single month.

    This information is part of an upcoming report by the Media Research Center's Business & Media Institute which has been looking into George Soros and his influence on the media.

    Just counting 13 prominent operations of the 180 media organizations he has funded equals 332 million people each month. Included in that total are big players like NPR, which received $1.8 million from Soros, as well as the little known Project Syndicate and Public News Service, both of which also claim to reach millions of readers.

    And that's really just the beginning. That tally takes into account only a few of the bigger Soros-funded media operations. Many numbers simply aren't available."Democracy Now!" - "a daily TV/radio news program, hosted by Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez" - is known for its left-wing take on global news. Its vitriol ranges from attacks on Blackwater founder Erik Prince and supporters of Andrew Breitbart (whom it calls 'Electronic Brownshirts'), to claims the U.S. is opposed to Arab democracy. Just that one Soros-funded operation is heard "on over 900 stations, pioneering the largest community media collaboration in the United States." But it posts no formal audience numbers. Phone calls to "Democracy Now!" were not returned.

    Laughably, Soros denies he has a media empire, despite spending easily more than $48 million on that empire and having top journalists from more than 30 major news organizations serving on the boards of groups he funds. "Another trick is to accuse your opponent of the behavior of which you are guilty, like Fox News accusing me of being the puppet master of a media empire," wrote Soros in the introduction to his new self-promotional book "The Philanthropy of George Soros." That book, appropriately, was written by former New York Times reporter Chuck Sudetic who now works for Soros' Open Society Foundations. It is the second such Soros promotional book written by a Times staffer.

    But Soros wildly understates his own impact. On April 8, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Boston conference on "media reform." She was joined by four other congressmen, a senator, two FCC commissioners, a Nobel laureate and numerous liberal journalists.

    The event was sponsored by a group called Free Press, which has received $1.4 million from Soros. Free Press has two major agenda items - undermining Internet freedom by pushing so-called "net neutrality," and advocating for government-funded media to the tune of $35 billion a year. Many of those attending or speaking were affiliated with Soros-funded operations.

    Free Press is just one of the better funded Soros groups. They also include the Center for American Progress ($7.3 million), which operates the heavily staffed Think Progress blog. That blog "now has 30 writers and researchers," according to Politico. Other well-funded operations include the investigative reporting operations at the Center for Public Integrity ($3.7 million) and Center for Investigative Reporting ($1.1 million), as well as Media Matters ($1.1 million) and the Sundance Institute ($1 million).

    That's not all. "Soros' foundations gave 34 grants from 1997 to 2010 to local NPR member stations and specific programs that have totaled nearly $3.4-million, said the foundations' [spokesperson Maria] Archuleta. Recipients included WNYC and Minnesota Public Radio," wrote outgoing NPR ombudsman Alicia Shepard.

    In fact, Soros funds nearly every major left-wing media source in the United States. Forty-five of those are financed through his support of the Media Consortium. That organization 'is a network of the country's leading, progressive, independent media outlets.' The list is predictable - everything from Alternet to the Young Turks.

    A report by the Media Consortium detailed how progressives had created an "echo chamber" of outlets "in which a message pushes the larger public or the mainstream media to acknowledge, respond, and give airtime to progressive ideas because it is repeated many times." According to the report called "The Big Thaw," "if done well, the message within the echo chamber can become the accepted meme, impact political dynamics, shift public opinion and change public policy."

    That mindset plays out in much of what the consortium's members do. Alternet describes itself as an "award-winning news magazine and online community that creates original journalism and amplifies the best of hundreds of other independent media sources." It hates Tea Parties and complains about "hatemongering" as the "ugly side of Evangelical Christianity." The site gets 1.5 million unique visitors to its unique view of the world.

    Brave New Films, also funded by the Media Consortium, is run by the same people who run Brave New Foundation. Robert Greenwald and Jim Miller produce and distribute videos attacking businesses and conservatives. The site brags about a 2008 election video "that exposes John McCain's double talk, for instance, and receive 9 million views around the world." Their latest effort is yet another attack on Koch Industries, attempting to halt a much-needed pipeline from the Canada to the U.S.

    Then there's the Young Turks and MSNBC host Cenk Uygur. In 2010, he was welcomed to the network with a press release detailing his web impact. "One of YouTube's Top 100 Partners, the irreverent talk show averages over 18 million views per month and has over 320 million views overall on its YouTube Channel.'"

    The list goes on and on. Project Syndicate calls itself "the world's pre-eminent source of original op-ed commentaries." It has wide reach. "As of May 2011, Project Syndicate membership included 462 leading newspapers in 150 countries." Its monthly circulation is 72,815,528. Naturally, "support comes from the Open Society Institute," the primary Soros foundation.

    Project Syndicate's columnist line-up, spread to 462 newspapers, is impressively left-leaning or globalist: UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, former President Jimmy Carter, former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, as well as lefty economists Jeffrey Sachs and Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz.

    Public News Service describes itself as "a member-supported news service that advocates journalism in the public interest." It is a "network of state-based news services' in 33 states. It claims it reaches 'a combined national weekly audience of 24 million." PNS is proud of its 2010 success. "Last year the Public News Service produced over 4,000 stories featuring public interest content that were redistributed several hundred thousand times on 6,114 radio stations, 928 print outlets, 133 TV stations and 100s of websites. Nationally, an average of 60 outlets used each story."

    The Soros 'echo chamber' is even larger. Many of his organizations have a media component - from New Orleans, where he funds The Lens, to nations that were once part of the former Soviet Union. But he doesn't have a media empire.

    Default Re: Soros's Progressive Cabal with Democrats to Weaken America

    Soros Boasts of Spending $100 Million on U.S. Immigration Reform Push

    George Soros just loves to meddle in American politics - especially if it's in support of liberal causes.

    Soros's Open Society Foundation proudly claimed to have given $100 million dollars to "immigrant rights" projects in the United States. Of the $16.7 million of this money that BMI identified, at least $5,300,755, nearly a third, went to organizations that also supported other liberal causes, including abortion, gay marriage and Obamacare.

    With $38.9 million in revenue in 2010 alone, the National Council on La Raza ($2,410,000 in Soros funding) calls itself "the largest national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States." It's also one of the most blatantly liberal. La Raza focused heavily on promoting the Affordable Care Act, as well supporting same-sex marriage. It has also been outspoken critic of the Tea Party.

    Amnesty International ($844,088 in Soros Funding) has been decidedly anti-Israel, pro-abortion, anti-traditional marriage and campaigned for clemency for Bradley Manning (referring to him by his new female moniker, "Chelsea"). According to Amnesty, the "right" to marry someone of any gender you choose is "enshrined in international human rights standards." Throughout its website, Amnesty International refers to LGBT issues as "LGBT Human Rights," thus by default labeling traditional marriage supporters as suppressors of human rights. The Immigrant Resource Center has a strong emphasis on LGBT Immigrants, as does the group Immigration Equality.

    The National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health focuses more on Obamacare and abortion "rights" than it does on immigration, but still gets $100,000 from Soros. A press release for this group called the "Conscience Clause" negotiations, which were aimed to keep those morally opposed to contraception and abortifacients from having to pay for them, "a political play that will hurt Latina health."

    Soros has aided hundreds of left-wing groups in America since 2000 under the auspices of his Open Society Foundations. In just 10 years, he gave more than $550 million to liberal organizations in the United States. This has included money going to fund liberal agenda topics like Earth Day, gun control, government funding of student loans and even the IRS targeting of conservatives.

    Only a fraction of the records for the $8 billion that Soros claims to give to charities around the world is accessible through the Open Society Foundations' American 990 tax forms. Because of this, the list below is partial, and reflects only part of the $100 million that the Open Society Foundations claim to have given to U.S. immigration groups.

    National Council on La Raza
    Soros funding: $2,410,000
    Immigrant Legal Resource Center
    Soros funding: $1,645,000
    Amnesty International
    Soros funding: $844,088
    Immigration Equality
    Soros funding: $301,667
    National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health
    Soros funding: $100,000


    Soros Spends Nearly $7 Million to Push Gun Control

    Five U.S. gun control groups have received almost $7 million combined from liberal billionaire George Soros, including the most prominent one, the Brady Campaign.

    The Soros contributions to these five groups total an astounding $6,727,966 between 2000 and 2011.

    The American Bar Association, a liberal group of lawyers, received $4,093,946 from Soros. According to their site, “the ABA believes that lawyers share a special responsibility to help create a just and secure society in which firearms are well-regulated.” President Laurel Bellows urged for more than just background checks back in January, including “full integration of state and local mental heal records into the National Instant Check System” and supported an assault weapons ban.

    The most renowned gun control group, The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, the legal arm of the better know Brady Campaign, received $50,000 in Soros funding. The Brady Center helps those involved in legal matters through their separate 501c(3) organization, as opposed to The Brady Campaign that deals at the grassroots level.

    The Children’s Defense Fund, whose mission is “to ensure every child a Health Start, a Head Start, a Fair Start, a Safe Start, and a Moral Start,” received $550,000 from Soros. In their “Protect Children, Not Guns” campaign, CDF links back to gun control partners, including The Brady Campaign.”

    The League of Women Voters received a staggering $2,028,020. LWV is not concerned solely with gun control. On their website, they also show to be against the XL Pipeline, Voter ID laws, and encourage their members to “tell your Senators to pass sensible gun laws.”

    And finally, Physicians for Social Responsibility received $5,000 from Soros. PSR is the “medical and public health voice” against nuclear power and weapons and for supposed “safe” energy. They push for “the strongest possible legislative and regulatory approaches” in regards to firearms.

    Since the Newtown massacre in Dec. 2012, there have been a few new gun control groups formed. Most notably, former Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords formed the new PAC Americans for Responsible Solutions. Another group, Moms Demand Action, was also formed for “gun sense” in America. It’s too soon to know whether these new groups are getting Soros funding, as well.

    Soros has made his support of gun control clear. In “The Bubble of American Supremacy: The Costs of Bush’s War in Iraq,” Soros complained about the Bush presidency hindering gun control. “He has aggressively infringed the rights of states to legislate and enforce provisions on issues such as gun control and medical marijuana,” Soros wrote.

    Soros's donations go to fund an extensive network of liberal media outlets, which have received more than $52 million. Those operations include a wide range of liberal news operations as well as the infrastructure of news - journalism schools, investigative journalism and even industry organizations. Since 2000, Soros has given away more than $550 million to liberal organizations in the United States through his Open Society Foundations.

    Unreported Soros Event Aims to Remake Entire Global Economy
    Two years ago, George Soros said he wanted to reorganize the entire global economic system. In two short weeks, he is going to start - and no one seems to have noticed.

    On April 8, a group he's funded with $50 million is holding a major economic conference and Soros's goal for such an event is to "establish new international rules" and "reform the currency system." It's all according to a plan laid out in a Nov. 4, 2009, Soros op-ed calling for "a grand bargain that rearranges the entire financial order."

    The event is bringing together "more than 200 academic, business and government policy thought leaders' to repeat the famed 1944 Bretton Woods gathering that helped create the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. Soros wants a new 'multilateral system," or an economic system where America isn't so dominant.

    More than two-thirds of the slated speakers have direct ties to Soros. The billionaire who thinks "the main enemy of the open society, I believe, is no longer the communist but the capitalist threat" is taking no chances.

    Thus far, this global gathering has generated less publicity than a spelling bee. And that's with at least four journalists on the speakers list, including a managing editor for the Financial Times and editors for both Reuters and The Times. Given Soros's warnings of what might happen without an agreement, this should be a big deal. But it's not.

    What is a big deal is that Soros is doing exactly what he wanted to do. His 2009 commentary pushed for "a new Bretton Woods conference, like the one that established the post-WWII international financial architecture." And he had already set the wheels in motion.

    Just a week before that op-ed was published, Soros had founded the New York City-based Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET), the group hosting the conference set at the Mount Washington Resort, the very same hotel that hosted the first gathering. The most recent INET conference was held at Central European University, in Budapest. CEU received $206 million from Soros in 2005 and has $880 million in its endowment now, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education.

    This, too, is a gathering of Soros supporters. INET is bringing together prominent people like former U.K. Prime Minister Gordon Brown, former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker and Soros, to produce "a lot of high-quality, breakthrough thinking."

    While INET claims more than 200 will attend, only 79 speakers are listed on its site - and it already looks like a Soros convention. Twenty-two are on Soros-funded INET's board and three more are INET grantees. Nineteen are listed as contributors for another Soros operation - Project Syndicate, which calls itself "the world's pre-eminent source of original op-ed commentaries" reaching "456 leading newspapers in 150 countries." It's financed by Soros's Open Society Institute. That's just the beginning.

    The speakers include:

    Volcker is chairman of President Obama's Economic Advisory Board. He wrote the forward for Soros's best-known book, 'The Alchemy of Finance' and praised Soros as "an enormously successful speculator" who wrote "with insight and passion" about the problems of globalization.

    Economist Jeffrey Sachs, director of The Earth Institute and longtime recipient of Soros charity cash. Sachs received $50 million from Soros for the U.N. Millennium Project, which he also directs. Sachs is world-renown for his liberal economics. In 2009, for example, he complained about low U.S. taxes, saying the "U.S. will have to raise taxes in order to pay for new spending initiatives, especially in the areas of sustainable energy, climate change, education, and relief for the poor."

    Soros friend Joseph E. Stiglitz, a former senior vice president and chief economist for the World Bank and Nobel Prize winner in Economics. Stiglitz shares similar views to Soros and has criticized free-market economists whom he calls "free market fundamentalists." Naturally, he's on the INET board and is a contributor to Project Syndicate.

    INET Executive Director Rob Johnson, a former managing director at Soros Fund Management, who is on the Board of Directors for the Soros-funded Economic Policy Institute. Johnson has complained that government intervention in the fiscal crisis hasn't been enough and wanted "restructuring," including asking "for letters of resignation from the top executives of all the major banks."

    Have no doubt about it: This is a Soros event from top to bottom. Even Soros admits his ties to INET are a problem, saying, "there is a conflict there which I fully recognize." He claims he stays out of operations. That's impossible. The whole event is his operation.

    INET isn't subtle about its aims for the conference. Johnson interviewed fellow INET board member Robert Skidelsky about "The Need for a New Bretton Woods" in a recent video. The introductory slide to the video is subtitled: "How currency issues and tension between the US and China are renewing calls for a global financial overhaul." Skidelsky called for a new agreement and said in the video that the conflict between the United States and China was "at the center of any monetary deal that may be struck, that needs to be struck."

    Soros described in the 2009 op-ed that U.S.-China conflict as "another stark choice between two fundamentally different forms of organization: international capitalism and state capitalism." He concluded that "a new multilateral system based on sounder principles must be invented." As he explained it in 2010, "we need a global sheriff."

    In the 2000 version of his book "Open Society: Reforming Global Capitalism," Soros wrote how the Bretton Woods institutions "failed spectacularly" during the economic crisis of the late 1990s. When he called for a new Bretton Woods in 2009, he wanted it to "reconstitute the International Monetary Fund," and while he's at it, restructure the United Nations, too, boosting China and other countries at our expense.

    "Reorganizing the world order will need to extend beyond the financial system and involve the United Nations, especially membership of the Security Council,' he wrote. 'That process needs to be initiated by the US, but China and other developing countries ought to participate as equals."

    Soros emphasized that point, that this needs to be a global solution, making America one among many. "The rising powers must be present at the creation of this new system in order to ensure that they will be active supporters."

    And that's exactly the kind of event INET is delivering, with the event website emphasizing "today's reconstruction must engage the larger European Union, as well as the emerging economies of Eastern Europe, Latin America, and Asia." China figures prominently, including a senior economist for the World Bank in Beijing, the director of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, the chief adviser for the China Banking Regulatory Commission and the Director of the Center on U.S.-China Relations.

    This is all easy to do when you have the reach of George Soros who funds more than 1,200 organizations. Except, any one of those 1,200 would shout such an event from the highest mountain. Groups like MoveOn.org or the Center for American Progress didn't make their names being quiet. The same holds true globally, where Soros has given more than $7 billion to Open Society Foundations - including many media-savvy organizations just a phone call away. Why hasn't the Soros network spread the word?

    Especially since Soros warns, all this needs to happen because "the alternative is frightening." The Bush-hating billionaire says America is scary "because a declining superpower losing both political and economic dominance but still preserving military supremacy is a dangerous mix."

    The Soros empire is silent about this new Bretton Woods conference because it isn't just designed to change global economic rules. It also is designed to put America in its place - part of a multilateral world the way Soros wants it. He wrote that the U.S. "could lead a cooperative effort to involve both the developed and the developing world, thereby reestablishing American leadership in an acceptable form."

    That's what this conference is all about - changing the global economy and the United States to make them "acceptable" to George Soros.

    Nobel Laureates to Co-Chair Independent Commission on Global Economy
    OCT 22, 2017

    Joseph Stiglitz, Michael Spence and a global team of leading thinkers are calling for new thinking & new rules for the world economy

    EDINBURGH, U.K.—Following the dramatic political shocks to the industrialized world in 2016, worsening global poverty and inequality, and inadequate public and private sector responses to the challenges that continue to plague the world’s economy 10 years after the financial crisis, the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) has initiated a Commission on Global Economic Transformation (CGET), with support from the Center for International Governance Innovation (CIGI). The effort will be led by Nobel Prize-winning economists Joseph Stiglitz and Michael Spence.

    As an independent entity, the Commission on Global Economic Transformation (CGET) is the first commission of its kind, initiated at a critical moment for the global economy. As political distrust and xenophobia are rising in the developed world in response to an economic system that serves only a very few wealthy people, developing countries continue to search for paths to prosperity, and people everywhere in the world are struggling with the challenges posed by widening inequality, technological disruption, and climate change. These problems are compounded by the ineffectiveness of current policy tools in many contexts, raising questions about the role of the state, of civil society, and of individuals along with national and international governance frameworks.

    The CGET’s work—commissioning papers, synthesizing existing research and convening international working sessions in China, India, and other locations—will result in a final report in 2019 summarizing its findings and recommendations. Reflecting the consensus view of the Commissioners, the report will include an examination of problems and emerging crises in the world economy and apply the research findings and conclusions reached at CGET meetings to concrete policy challenges in specific countries and regions of the world.

    The Commission will strive to ensure its report informs national governments and international organizations about the profound challenges facing us and outline a path forward to inclusive and sustainable global prosperity. To that end, CGET will convene meetings with elected officials and policymakers in countries around the world to share the report’s recommendations.

    The Commission will tackle issues from macroeconomic balances to rethinking globalization, and from climate change to technology and the future of work. Among these core areas, it will focus on:

    Slow and stagnant growth in advanced economies;
    Continuing inadequacies with the international financial system;
    Disruptions to work, especially from new technology;
    Widening income and wealth inequality in the face of globalization and technological disruption;
    Political and social polarization resulting from economic and governmental failures to deliver inclusive prosperity;
    Trade and the ineffectiveness of traditional development strategies for emerging economies, given the changes in technology and global supply chains;
    Climate change;
    Increased migration, often driven by despair caused by economic and political disruption in developing countries, unresponsive governments, slow job growth, and climate change.

    Joining the Commission are some of the world’s leading economists, policy experts and thought leaders. They include:

    Robert Johnson, President of INET and Former Chief Economist of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee;
    Lord Adair Turner, Chairman of INET and former chairman of the UK Financial Services Authority;
    Nelson Barbosa, Professor of Economics at the São Paulo School of Economics of the Getulio Vargas Foundation, Adjunct Professor at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, and former Brazilian Minister of Finance;
    Kaushik Basu, Professor of Economics at Cornell University and former Senior Vice-President and Chief Economist of the World Bank;
    Peter Bofinger, Professor of Monetary and International Economics at Würzburg University and a member of the German Council of Economic Experts;
    Winnie Byanyima, Oxfam International executive director; former member of the Ugandan Parliament, African Commission and Director of Gender and Development at the United Nations Development Program;
    Mohamed El-Erian, Chief Economic Advisor, Allianz, and former chair of U.S. President Obama’s Global Development Council;
    Dr Gaël Giraud, Economist and senior researcher at C.N.R.S. (French national center for scientific research);
    James Manyika, Director of the McKinsey Global Institute;
    Rohinton Medhora, President of the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI);
    Mari Pangestu, Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy, Republic of Indonesia;
    Danny Quah, Professor of Economics at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore;
    Dani Rodrik, Professor of International Political Economy at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, and President-Elect of the International Economic Association;
    Eisuke Sakakibara, Professor of Economics at Keio University and former Japanese Vice Minister of Finance for International Affairs;
    Andrew Sheng, Distinguished Fellow of Fung Global Institute, chief adviser to China Banking Regulatory Commission, and former deputy chief executive of Hong Kong Monetary Authority;

    Commenting on the Commission’s launch, Robert Johnson, President of INET said:

    “We are establishing the Commission because the existing paradigm can’t meet the challenges we face. That paradigm romanticizes unfettered markets while it overestimates the capacity of national governments to address human problems—at a time when the domain of the sovereign is smaller than the scope of the market. Bringing together some of the world’s leading economic experts and thinkers, we will dig deeply into pressing issues societies around the world are struggling with. The Commission for Global Economic Transformation will strive to offer not only new analytical frameworks to understand these problems, but also sustainable paths forward for governments and societies around the world.”

    Commission Co-Chair Professor Joseph Stiglitz, commenting on the focus areas of the commission said:

    “We need new rules and coordinated governance to address destructive tendencies rapidly emerging in the global economy, and to protect human communities subject to them. Whether it comes to reckoning with widening inequality, climate change or stagnating growth, it’s clear that our international governance frameworks are outdated and need to be reconceived in a globally interdependent world. The Commission looks forward to sharing our work with governments around the world to aid them in tackling these challenges to economies and our social fabric.”

    Commission Co-Chair Professor Michael Spence added:

    “The Commission has come together to address a number of challenges. One is rising inequality in growth patterns and increasing social, political, and economic upheaval. We suspect this has contributed to centrifugal forces within societies and across national boundaries. Political polarization in the U.S. and across Europe, coupled with widespread global poverty and inequality, may undermine our ability to address these challenges in a vigorous and pragmatic manner. A second set of challenges relates to the impact of rapidly evolving digital technologies on economies, jobs, and needed skills. We hope the Commission’s research and findings will help guide governments, international institutions, businesses, and CSO’s in coming together to address these challenges.”

    Commissioner Winnie Byanyima added:

    “Nothing short of a ‘Global Economic Transformation’ is needed to urgently reverse a long-term global inequality crisis and build a more human economy that benefits everyone, not the privileged few. It is my honor to join this esteemed Commission on behalf of Oxfam and to amplify the voices of those people we work with facing poverty—most of all women across the South. We must advance the ideas that lead to fairer societies in which work is dignified, taxation is fair, where businesses work in the interests of workers and producers, and in which governments are truly accountable to their people.”

    Commissioner Rohinton Medhora added:

    “The challenges this Commission will take on are central to the course of human welfare. These complex topics are exactly what INET and CIGI were created to tackle, and I look forward to working alongside this powerful group of commissioners.”

    Pope Francis Joins Joe Stiglitz and Rob Johnson in Creating New Economic Thinking
    MAY 13, 2019

    INET Global Commission to collaborate with Pope Francis and Scholas Occurrentes on bringing the voices of young people into the economics profession

    Vatican May 11, 2019. Pope Francis and American economists Robert Johnson and Joseph Stiglitz pledged to work together with the Pontifical foundation Scholas Occurrentes to develop a series of projects to bring the voices of young people into the economics profession and to also respond to the challenges of growing inequality and despair throughout the world.

    In a private meeting with the Pope and Scholas Occurrentes directors José María del Corral and Enrique Palmeyro, Johnson—president of the Institute for New Economic Thinking—and Stiglitz—a recipient of the Nobel Prize in Economics—discussed the need to promote on a global level, a “social economy” that “looks towards the future with the voice of young people in mind”.

    During the summit, which served for the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Scholas and INET, Pope Francis and Professor Stiglitz both warned about “the problems of certain forms of market economies that encourage individualistic behavior and in which markets do not end up serving the people but rather the people end up serving the markets.”

    “It is fundamental to work on the education of alternative systems that do not worship money. We have to try to develop programs and studies around the concept of a circular economy, that contributes to an education that is aware of the environment’s boundaries and that teaches to return to the environment what is taken from it”, Stiglitz suggested during the meeting. “If not, humanity turns to suicide,” Pope Francis agreed.

    At the meeting, which concluded a day of work that had begun at the headquarters of Scholas Occurrentes at the Palace of St. Calisto, Johnson and Stiglitz also proposed to the Foundation to contribute to a series of reports being written by the Commission on Global Economic Transformation (CGET), an initiative of INET with support from the Center for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) and co-chaired by Nobel laureates Joseph Stiglitz and Michael Spence. The CGET is the first commission of its kind, convened at a critical moment for the global economy. As political distrust and xenophobia sweeps the developed world, developing countries search for paths to prosperity, and people around the world struggle with the challenges posed by widening inequality, technological disruption, and climate change. Recognizing the need of new paradigms and new solutions, CGET will chart alternative reforms that will support a more sustainable, prosperous course for the world economy. These ideas will be presented in a series of reports that are currently being drafted and will eventually be discussed at various international economic forums.

    “We are deeply interested in working with Scholas to deepen discussions on social issues and the changes generated by globalization in societies, as well as to think about concrete ideas on what we should do to make technology and markets serve humanity and not the other way around,” Stiglitz said. “Society needs a vision of the future that derives from listening intensely and combines the insights of the mind with what is seen through the eye of the heart,” Johnson added. There will be a follow up discussion about the joint projects at the V International Congress organized by Scholas at the University of Fordham in New York, from 2 to 5 June 2019.

    On behalf of Scholas, Del Corral and Palmeyro thanked Stiglitz and Johnson for being chosen to represent the youth and give voice to their pains and discontents, and for committing to jointly organize a future meeting in the Vatican between economists and young people from different countries.

    During the working day, a select group of economists and researchers from Scholas Chairs, headed by Professor Angelo Paletta, from the University of Bologna, Italy also participated along with members from INET’s Commission on Global Economic Transformation, Peter Bofinger (Professor of Monetary and International Economics at Würzburg University and a member of the German Council of Economic Experts) and Eisuke Sakakibara (Professor of Economics at Keio University and former Japanese Vice Minister of Finance for International Affairs), as well as Columbia University economist Martin Guzman.

    $12 Million Buys Soros, Steyer White House Meeting; Media Ignore

    Money may not buy happiness, but it certainly buys access. Liberal billionaires George Soros and Tom Steyer met with John Podesta, the counselor to the president, to advise him on environmental policy.

    Both Soros and Steyer have donated millions to the Center for American Progress, a liberal group Podesta founded and led until December 2013. Steyer has given $3,850,000 to CAP since 2008, while Soros more than doubled that at $8,067,186.

    Despite repeatedly hyping liberal fears about conservative donors influencing politics, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN and major newspapers all ignored the meeting. Soros’ spokesperson and advisor Michael Vachon, who was also in attendance, told E&E News that the men “discussed a variety of topics,” according to the Washington Free Beacon.

    Since 2012, ABC, CBS and NBC have covered the libertarian Koch brothers nine times more than they covered George Soros and Tom Steyer combined. Media is home turf for Soros. He has poured more than $65 million into media and journalism groups through his Open Society Foundations since 2000.

    “The three met to discuss global climate change negotiations, and the process of the 2015 United Nations climate change convention to be held in Paris,” according to The Hill, which cited a White House Official. The Hill also noted that Steyer met with Podesta again in March.

    The meeting occurred in February, but details are just now being published.

    Podesta was the founder and president of the liberal Center for American Progress (CAP), before being tapped by the White House to focus on health care law and climate change issues.

    CAP is a policy writing and advocating organization, complete with its own media outlet, Think Progress. Podesta previously co-chaired the transition team when Obama first came into office, and was White House chief of staff under Clinton. Neera Tanden, who has worked for both Obama and Hillary Clinton, currently runs CAP.

    $3.6 Million from Soros Aids Groups That Support, Promote Occupy Wall Street

    Left-wing financier George Soros is at it again. While he may claim he's not behind the Occupy Wall Street protests, funding from his foundations says otherwise. Soros threw his support behind the movement at a United Nations panel on Oct. 3, 'I can sympathize with their grievances.' But he does more than just sympathize, his foundations funded groups that back the protests and steer their 'progressive' message.

    Reuters even posed the question 'Who's behind the Wall St. protests?' on Oct. 13, but downplayed Soros's actual financial involvement. Even though 'Soros and the protesters share some ideological ground,' the story added. But Reuters undersold the connection significantly.

    The protesters stand by their claim that theirs is purely a grassroots movement. But it is hard to ignore the concerted effort by liberal groups, unions, and other Soros-funded entities that prop-up and fuel the Occupy movement. An echo-chamber of left-wing blogs and news sites that receive Soros cash continues to push the anti-capitalist protest story. Articles repeatedly praise labor and climate activists for their support while denigrating police for their efforts to keep the peace.

    Organizations that joined the protesters were granted more than $3.6 million from Soros's Open Society Foundations. On Oct. 5 there was a 'march in solidarity with #occupywallstreet' that listed seven such groups out of the 16 overall supporting the protest. Those seven organizations received $3,614,690 from Soros' Open Society Foundations since the year 2000, with more than $2 million going to Common Cause Education Fund, part of Common Cause, and another $1.1 million to MoveOn.org.

    Even the protesters admit the hypocrisy of having billionaire Soros and MoveOn.org 'joining forces to voice their 'support' for an anti-Wall Street movement' and that it 'should set alarm bells ringing.' Additional funding went to the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Community Voices Heard, Coalition for the Homeless, Neighborhood Economic Development Advocacy Project (NEDAP), and 350.org.

    Those left-wing organizations were joined by their friends in the progressive media. A publication for the protesters, the 'Occupy Wall Street Journal,' is supported by the Independent Media Center which received more than $70,000 from two parts of the Tides organization. This group donates millions of dollars to liberal causes and is partially funded by Soros. Since 2000, Tides received $25,991,845 from his Open Society Foundations. Reuters only noted the $3.5 million from 2007-2009 but failed to mention the long history of funding and the other $20 million.

    Tides is made up of the Tides Center, which received $7,537,482, and the Tides Foundation, which got an additional nearly $18,454,363. Adbusters, which Reuters called 'an anti-capitalist group in Canada which started the protests,' received $184,721 in Tides money.

    Soros-funded progressive media also championed the protest. The liberal echo-chamber that reaches more than 300 million people every month has been hard at work promoting the protests. The Media Consortium received $425,000 from Soros's Open Society Foundations, and affiliates have been busy promoting Occupy Wall Street. These sites promoted stories about big labor support, climate activists' support, and police brutality.

    Media Consortium member AlterNet, which is part of the Independent Media Institute that got an extra $495,000 from Soros, has a section of their website for 'Special Coverage: Occupy Wall Street.' Here it has articles that bust '5 conservative economic myths' such as 'regulations kill jobs' and 'business does everything better than government.' It also lauds big labor for joining the protests. AlterNet's Kristen Gwynne was even arrested during a protest.

    The Center for American Progress received $7.3 million from Soros's Open Society Foundations. CAP is also where former Green Jobs Czar Van Jones, now a senior fellow, landed after being forced out of the Obama Administration,. Two of their blogs, that also happen to be part of the Media Consortium, helped promote the protest, Campus Progress and Think Progress. They also wrote about climate activists that support the movement. Campus Progress described 'police brutality' at the protests while Think Progress thinks there is a 'double standard on occupy wall street and the tea party.' They criticized how conservative pundits vilify the 99 Percent Movement as 'misguided, irrelevant, or even dangerous' while embracing the Tea Party as part of the 'conservative echo chamber.'

    As the Business & Media Institute has reported, a study by the Media Consortium detailed how progressives had created an "echo chamber" of outlets "in which a message pushes the larger public or the mainstream media to acknowledge, respond, and give airtime to progressive ideas because it is repeated many times." Ironic how Think Progress used the same 'echo chamber' term to write-off the so-called conservative 'double standard'. According to the report called "The Big Thaw," "if done well, the message within the echo chamber can become the accepted meme, impact political dynamics, shift public opinion and change public policy."

    Consortium members used this methodology once again when they covered the protests. One common theme was the celebration of big labor when they joined the Occupy movement. Left-wing magazine Mother Jones praised plans to offer manpower and resources, stage marches, and add 'organizing muscle' to the protests. A similar article by In These Times quoted AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka that they will support the protest 'in every way.'

    Climate activists were also hailed for their support while police efforts were sharply criticized. Grist celebrated climate activists for getting involved. A coalition led by 350.org founder Bill McKibben embraced the movement, which Soros gave $8,900. However, Democracy Now's Amy Goodman went down to the protests for a closer look and proceeded to write how the protest expanded 'despite police effort to 'silence' demonstrations.' More examples of 'police brutality' were covered by Alternet while Think Progress posted an update on the Transport Workers Union refusal to bus protesters that the police arrested to show support.

    Extinction Rebellion Climate Activists Paid Over $500 Per Week by George Soros to ‘Shut Down’ Britain

    October 16, 2019

    Extinction Rebellion protestors are paid up to £400 per week to “shut down” Britain, according to documents revealed by a British newspaper.

    Documents revealed to The Mail on Sunday show that the far-left climate change alarmist group has paid activists over £70,000 during a four-month span and more than £200,000 since the founding of the group.

    The list of financial backers of ‘XR’ is not made fully public, but some high profile elite donors include ‘master of puppets’ billionaire activist George Soros, the son of British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, the granddaughter of oil magnate John Paul Getty, and the rock band Radiohead, amongst others.

    Extinction Rebellion’s finances have come under scrutiny as the group has paid no taxes on the money it has paid to its activist members. A document seen by The Mail on Sunday showed that even members of the group have become concerned, saying that HMRC would “crawl all over us” and that they expected fines from the government in the range of £150,000 to £200,000.

    Metropolitan Police

    @metpoliceuk
    As of 12:00hrs on Sunday, 13 October, there have been 1,309 arrests in connection with the ongoing Extinction Rebellion protests across London.
    4:39 AM - Oct 13, 2019

    Conservative MP David Davies called for an investigation into the group’s finances, telling The Mail: “It is utterly outrageous if Extinction Rebellion is not paying its fair share of tax. These self-appointed, holier-than-thou guardians of the planet may think they are somehow above the law but they are not. What’s needed now is a root-and-branch investigation of how this organisation operates, starting with an immediate inquiry into its tax affairs. I shall be writing to HMRC tomorrow to demand nothing less.”

    The news comes in the wake of over 1,300 arrests of Extinction Rebellion protestors in the last week alone. Nearly 500 protestors were arrested removed from their Trafalgar Square encampment on Tuesday, and more arrested after the group attempted to “occupy” London City Airport.

    Extinction Rebellion will conclude its ‘Autumn Uprising’ protests on Saturday, October 19th.

    George Soros Emerges as Major Funder of ‘Global Climate Strike’ Groups

    George Soros financed radical environmental groups partnering in this week’s “Global Climate Strike” to the tune of nearly $25 million, according to a new report.

    At least 22 of the left-wing activist groups listed as partners in the Global Climate Strike received $24,854,592 in funding from liberal billionaire George Soros between 2000-2017 through his Open Society Network, Joseph Vazquez reported Thursday for the Media Research Center.

    Though ostensibly ignited by the protests of 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, the Global Climate Strike has borne from the outset the indelible fingerprints of well-funded, radical environmental activists. As it turns out, much of the funding has been coming from professional disrupter George Soros.

    Among the organizations receiving Soros funding were Fund for Global Human Rights, Global Greengrants Fund, 350.org, Amnesty International, Avaaz, Color of Change, and People’s Action. Each of these groups has climate-related agendas and goals spanning from reducing global carbon emissions to less than 350 parts per million and 100 percent “clean energy,” to the elimination of new fossil fuel projects and a “green civil rights movement.”

    Other major donors have included Democrat presidential candidate Tom Steyer’s NextGen America as well as the Sierra Club, which has reportedly received millions from former Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

    The group 350.org, founded by Bill McKibben in 2008, has fought against coal power in India as well as tried to stop the Keystone XL pipeline in the U.S.

    While kids were marching, singing, and twerking for the Global Climate Strike, a group of more than 500 scientists and professionals appealed to the United Nations for a long overdue, open debate on climate change.

    “Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific,” the scientists stated in their declaration sent to the U.N. secretary general.

    “Scientists should openly address the uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real benefits as well as the imagined costs of adaptation to global warming, and the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of mitigation,” they said.

    The signers also insisted that public policy must respect scientific and economic realities and not just reflect the most fashionable trend of the day.

    “There is no climate emergency. Therefore, there is no cause for panic and alarm,” they noted. “We strongly oppose the harmful and unrealistic net-zero CO2 policy proposed for 2050.”

    “If better approaches emerge, and they certainly will, we have ample time to reflect and adapt. The aim of international policy should be to provide reliable and affordable energy at all times, and throughout the world,” they said.

    Soros Gave Global Climate Strike Partners More than $24M
    Listen to the Article!

    By Joseph Vazquez | September 26, 2019 4:55 PM EDT

    While 16-year-old Greta Thunberg has become the face of the climate strike movement, it's no longer gatherings of children. A litany of well-funded, left-wing activist groups have partnered to generate a week of climate protests known as the “Global Climate Strike:” Sept 20, through 27, bookending the U.N. climate conference.

    At least 22 of those partners have been funded by liberal billionaire George Soros who spends nearly $1 billion a year on groups pushing a variety of left-wing causes. Together, 22 organizations listed as international or North American partners of the Global Climate Strike received at least $24,854,592 from Soros’ Open Society Network between 2000-2017.

    The liberal media celebrated Thunberg’s arrival in New York and the global protests held Sept. 20, and will likely to do the same for the second round. ABC’s Maggi Rulli shrieked, “Now, look at what her movement has become!” MSNBC even promoted grotesque gestures such as German protesters “simulated hangings.” calling it a “striking visual message to push for action.” Berliners stood on ‘ice blocks with nooses around their necks. A stark call for change before it's too late,” reported MSNBC’s Yasmin Vossoughian on Sept. 20.

    Strikes are scheduled in 150 countries for Sept. 27. Undoubtedly, the promotion and partnership of hundreds of liberal groups including 350.org (which hosts the Global Climate Strike website), EarthJustice and Friends of the Earth helped the strikes balloon in size. The Sept. 20, strikes drew around 4 million activists, with 2,500 protests scheduled in 163 countries around the globe, according to Vox. Democratic candidate Tom Steyer’s NextGen America was also a partner, along with the Sierra Club which has gotten millions from former Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

    In recent years, Soros funding went to at least 22 of those partnering groups including 350.org, Amnesty International, Avaaz, Color of Change and People’s Action. Those groups had various climate-related agendas from reducing global carbon emissions to less than 350 parts per million, campaigning for 100 percent “clean energy,” banning new fossil fuel projects to a “green civil rights movement.”

    Eco-doomsayer Bill McKibben founded 350 in 2008. The name of the organization comes from its desired carbon emissions goal of less than 350 parts per million — current emissions levels are already at 415 ppm. McKibben’s past climate predictions were so extreme even Scientific American called him out in 2011, for being “overheated” and”fear-mongering.” The group fought against coal power in India, tried to stop the Keystone XL pipeline in the U.S. and has promoted fossil fuel divestment.

    Known more for its pro-abortion, pro-gun control, LGBTQ rights advocacy and opposition to Israel, Amnesty International was another Soros-funded strike partner. Its website confirmed it “will be taking part in the climate strikes,” because “Human rights are intimately linked with climate change because of its devastating effect on not just the environment but our own wellbeing.”

    Lesser-known group, Avaaz is a “global ‘e-advocacy’ nonprofit organization whose chief function is to promote leftwing political agendas through Web-based movement-building and campaigns,” according to Discover The Networks. One Avaaz campaign gathered petition signatures to bring the world’s societies and economies to 100 percent clean energy by 2050.

    It warned, “one top scientist just warned that we are all ‘f*cked’ if global warming releases gigantic amounts of methane gas from the arctic tundra.” The group hoped to make it the “largest Avaaz petition ever.”

    Online organizing group Color of Change was founded by liberal CNN host and former “green jobs czar” for the Obama Administration Van Jones and James Rucker, former director of grassroots mobilization for MoveOn.org.

    According to Influence Watch, Color of Change “run campaigns that seek to attack conservative individuals, silence conservative media pundits, and defund conservative organizations.” But it’s also active on climate issues, advocating for “race-based environmentalist legislation.”

    According to its own website, “Black communities and other communities of color are left vulnerable to the worst effects of climate change and environmental racism.” It also accused the Republican Party of “standing in the way of progress.”

    In a 2017 op-ed written by Andy Murdock for the University of California’s Carbon Neutrality Initiative, Jones argued that “a 21st century civil rights movement has to be a green civil rights movement.”

    People’s Action is a liberal 501(c)(4) lobbying arm that advocates for healthcare for all, free college for all, and extreme environmentalist policies like “banning all new fossil fuel and extractive energy projects.”

    It also wants a “good Green Jobs program that would target communities of color, low-income communities, environmental justice communities, fossil fuel communities, returning citizens and other communities that would benefit from green jobs most for integrated jobs training and placement.”

    MRC Business relied on funding details and donation information from Soros’ Open Society Network (Foundation to Promote Open Society, Open Society Foundations, Open Society Institute, Alliance for Open Society International Inc. and Open Society Policy Center) on organization websites, Influence Watch and records in Foundation Directory for this analysis.

    Shocking memo reveals George Soros behind Google, Facebook censorship
    Joseph Farah

    August 27, 2018 (WorldNetDaily.com) - You can't make this stuff up.

    Never, even in my fertile imagination, would I have guessed that we would find a smoking-gun 49-page memo revealing how George Soros operatives, including David Brock, were there at the genesis, the planning stages, with their hands on the ignition key, of the most concerted, well-funded, diabolical attack on free speech in the history of America.

    But there it is.

    Millions saw it on the DrudgeReport – including, no doubt, President Trump, Vice President Pence and Republican congressional leaders. But most Americans still know nothing of its existence – because it was not reported among the Big Media. They don't want you to know about it. They would be embarrassed if America found out how they have been used and manipulated – from their focus on "Russian collusion" to other wild conspiracy theories targeting their No. 1 villain, President Trump.

    It was nothing short of a plan to turn Google, Facebook and other social media into hyper-partisan Democratic Party activists, promoters, cheerleaders, and off-the-books donors in an effort to turn the country into a one-party state.

    And they're getting away with it, even though the beans have been spilled publicly. That's partly because, as I have pointed out before, Google-Facebook control the media. They use the media. They manipulate the media. They choose winners and losers among the media. That's real power that we have never seen before in American life.

    The timing of this insidious plot is key. When did it begin? Right after Trump was inaugurated. That's when the attacks on the independent, alternative media — WND, Breitbart, et al. — began. We've been feeling the squeeze ever since — through politically skewed algorithms and speech codes.

    The Google-Facebook-YouTube-Twitter-Amazon-Apple cabal is trying to ensure that we never have a free and fair election again in America. The "Russia-collusion" hoax is meant to take your eye off the real collusion by un-American, anti-free speech radical political activists.

    Do you get it now?

    Do you understand what I have been warning about furiously since January of this year?

    Read the whole memo, if you have the stomach for it.

    These people are crazed, shameless and hell-bent on fundamentally transforming America from a free and open society to one that is dominated by mega-corporations who want to control everything – mostly you and how you think and behave.

    Now, what do we do about it?

    Recognize the battle the Trump administration finds itself in. This plot was designed to stop him. It's as close to a coup attempt as anything devised by the Deep State rear guard. So, they devised a scheme to attack those in the independent, alternative media that helped get him elected by countering their lies. They determined to do that by killing the messengers – and they are very close to accomplishing that objective.

    Pray that the president, the vice president and Republican congressional leaders challenge the "Speech Code Cartel" while they still can or else America will find itself in a cultural and political endgame, on the verge of tyranny.

    Support those being hurt most right now, those fighting for survival, in the independent, alternative media with your prayers and financial support.

    Mask off! Social-media censor king revealed
    Plotted with Google, Facebook to eliminate 'right wing propaganda'
    Art Moore Published August 20, 2018 at 8:41pm

    The recent wave of censorship of conservative voices on the internet by tech giants Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Apple mirrors a plan concocted by a coalition of George Soros-funded, progressive groups to take back power in Washington from President Trump's administration.

    A confidential, 49-page memo for defeating Trump by working with the major social-media platforms to eliminate "right wing propaganda and fake news" was presented in January 2017 by Media Matters founder David Brock at a retreat in Florida with about 100 donors, the Washington Free Beacon reported at the time.

    On Monday, the Gateway Pundit blog noted the memo's relationship with recent moves by Silicon Valley tech giants to "shadow ban" conservative political candidates and pundits and remove content.

    The Free Beacon obtained a copy of the memo, "Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action," by attending the retreat.

    The memo spells out a four-year agenda that deployed Media Matters along with American Bridge, Shareblue and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) to attack Trump and Republicans.

    The strategies are impeachment, expanding Media Matters' mission to combat "government misinformation," ensuring Democratic control of the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections, filing lawsuits against the Trump administration, monetizing political advocacy, using a "digital attacker" to delegitimize Trump's presidency and damage Republicans, and partnering with Facebook to combat "fake news."

    Quashing 'fake news' with 'mathematical precision'

    The Free Beacon in its January 2017 story said Brock sought to raise $40 million in 2017 for his organizations.

    The document claims Media Matters and far-left groups have "access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites" so they can "systemically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data."

    "The earlier we can identify a fake news story, the more effectively we can quash it," the memo states. "With this new technology at our fingertips, researchers monitoring news in real time will be able to identify the origins of a lie with mathematical precision, creating an early warning system for fake news and disinformation."

    Media Matters met with Facebook, which boasts some 2 billion members worldwide, to discuss how to crack down on fake news, according to the memo.

    The social media giant was provided with "a detailed map of the constellation of right-wing Facebook pages that had been the biggest purveyors of fake news."

    Brock's memo also says Media Matters gave Google "the information necessary to identify 40 of the worst fake new sites" so they could be banned from Google's advertising network.

    The Gateway Pundit pointed out that in 2016, Google carried out that plan on the Gateway Pundit blog and other conservative sites, including Breitbart, the Drudge Report, ********, Zero Hedge and Conservative Treehouse.

    Facebook, meanwhile has changed its newsfeed algorithm, ostensibly to combat "fake news," causing a precipitous decline in traffic for many conservative sites.

    President Donald Trump himself was affected, with his engagement on Facebook dropping by 45 percent.

    A study in June by Gateway Pundit found Facebook had eliminated 93 percent of the traffic of top conservative news outlets.

    Western Journal, in its own study, found that while left-wing publishers saw a roughly 2 percent increase in web traffic from Facebook following the algorithm changes, conservative sites saw a loss of traffic averaging around 14 percent.

    'Totalitarian impulse' of the left

    President Trump's 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, charged last week the giants of Silicon Valley are stifling free speech, particularly conservative speech, manifesting the "inherent totalitarian impulse" of the left.

    On Friday, Facebook appeared to be "shadow banning" the non-profit education site PragerU, founded by talk-host Dennis Prager, causing a drop in engagement of 99.9999 percent while removing two videos regarded as "hate speech."

    After Facebook rejected a highly inspirational ad for a Republican congressional candidate that included images depicting her parents' persecution under the Khmer Rouge communist regime in Cambodia, Twitter followed up with its own ban.

    WND reported earlier this month Facebook banned a pro-life video ad by a judicial candidate, giving the same explanation.

    On Aug. 6, WND reported, Facebook, YouTube and Apple banned commentator Alex Jones and his ******** website within hours of each other.

    Last month, WND reported moderate Muslims and counter-terrorist activists were increasingly being restricted by Silicon Valley, while terrorist content remains on social-media platforms, according to researchers.

    Trump campaign chief Parscale said last week the banning of Jones "will inevitably lead to the silencing of those with far less controversial opinions."

    "What we are seeing in Big Tech is the inherent totalitarian impulse of the Left come into full focus," Parscale said.

    Read the Confidential David Brock Memo Outlining Plans to Attack Trump
    Memo was handed out to big money liberal donors at posh Florida retreat

    Joe Schoffstall - JANUARY 26, 2017 1:31 PM

    David Brock, the seasoned liberal operative and Clinton loyalist who founded Media Matters, huddled with more than 100 donors last weekend at the swanky Turnberry Isle Resort in Aventura, Fla. to map out how Democrats will "kick Donald Trump's ass."

    The Washington Free Beacon attended the retreat and obtained David Brock's private and confidential memorandum from the meeting. The memo, "Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action," outlines Brock's four-year agenda to attack Trump and Republicans using Media Matters, American Bridge, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), and Shareblue.

    Brock sought to raise $40 million in 2017 for his organizations, and hoped the retreat would lead to the creation of a liberal donor network to rival the network of the conservative Koch brothers.

    Below is the confidential memo in its entirety.

    Extinction Rebellion's true target is not climate: It's idea that heterosexuality is 'normal'
    'We need to cure the causes of the infection, not just alleviate the symptoms'

    WND Staff By WND Staff
    Published October 20, 2019 at 4:03pm

    A founder of a radical group pushing the theory that mankind is causing catastrophic global warming has confessed the true objective of his movement.

    It's not about drastically curbing carbon emissions to save the planet.

    It is about destroying the "delusion" of "heteronormativity," the idea that heterosexuality is normal.

    And the "delusion" of "white supremacy," "eurocentrism," "patriarchy" and "class hierarchy."

    Stuart Basden, a founder of the Extinction Rebellion movement, boasts he was one of 15 people in 2018 who launched the "rebellion."

    "I was a coordinator of one of the original five working groups, and I've been organizing with XR day-and-night since then (frugally living off my savings so I don’t have to work, having quit an industry that paid me £1000/week)," he said.

    The organization claims to be a nonviolent global environmental movement with the stated aim of using "civil disobedience to compel government action."

    It has delivered a list of "demands" to the United Kingdom, including to "declare" a climate emergency, eliminate all greenhouse gas emissions and let a "Citizens' Assembly" impose "ecological justice" on society.

    First, Basden admits that the climate is "breaking down" but it won't be fixed.

    "We're facing imminent societal collapse (whatever that means), both around the world and in the UK. All of our lives are soon going to radically change," he said. "None of this is particularly controversial. When a bus is driving with a certain momentum towards a person, it gets clearer and clearer that it will hit the person. After a certain point, it's inevitable. And that’s where we stand now, with regards to the momentum of climatic change."

    But he said his "rebellion" movement isn't about climate, because that's a symptom of a system he believes has to be destroyed.

    Then he lists the "delusions" he says are at fault:

    "The delusion of white-supremacy centers whiteness and the experience of white people, constructing and perpetuating the myth that white people and their lives are somehow inherently better and more valuable than people of color," he writes.

    "The delusion of patriarchy centers the male experience, and excludes/hinders female assigned people from public life (reducing them to a possession or object for ownership or consumption). Patriarchy teaches dominating and competitive behaviors, and emphasizes the idea that the world is a place of scarcity, separation and powerlessness.

    "The delusions of Eurocentrism include the notion that Europeans know what is best for the world," he writes.

    And, he said, "The delusions of hetero-sexism/heteronormativity propagate the idea that heterosexuality is ‘normal’ and that other expressions of sexuality are deviant. The delusions of class hierarchy uphold the theory that the rich elite are better/smarter/nobler than the rest of us, and make therefore better decisions."

    Summit News reported his ideas drew a reaction.

    "Wait, what?" the commentary said. "Basden asserts that whatever climate problems exist can’t be fixed and that the movement should instead be focused on tearing down the entire system of western capitalism (China, the world's biggest polluter, isn't mentioned once)."

    "So it's not about climate change, it's about ending the idea that heterosexuality is the default biological breeding setting for humankind," the commentary said. "Ok, then."

    Explains Basden: "We need to cure the causes of the infection, not just alleviate the symptoms. To focus on the climate’s breakdown (the symptom) without focusing attention on these toxic delusions (the causes) is a form a denialism. Worse, it’s a racist and sexist form of denialism, that takes away from the necessary focus of the need for all of us to de-colonise our selves."

    He warns the "insanity" of colonizers continues today, and then explains he means no disrespect to those "who have been labeled 'insane' by a normative system, nor who identify as being 'insane.'"

    He said he was issuing a "call to the XR community to never say we’re a climate movement. Because we’re not. We’re a Rebellion. And we’re rebelling to highlight and heal from the insanity that is leading to our extinction. Now tell the truth and act like it."

    Media Matters Expands Mission to Combat Government ‘Misinformation’
    Dark money group to target administration officials in significant shift

    Lachlan Markay - JANUARY 20, 2017 11:30 AM

    AVENTURA, Fla.—The left-wing Media Matters for America plans to expand its opposition research operation beyond its traditional focus on media to directly combat statements from the incoming Trump administration, according to internal documents.

    The dark money group will continue to attack conservatives in the press, but it will also take on what it calls "misinformation" emanating from public officials, a significant expansion of the 12-year-old group's mission.

    "Media Matters must be fully prepared to identify misinformation coming from government and fight it at every turn—both directly and indirectly by prodding journalists to scrutinize federal claims," the group wrote in a briefing book provided to current and prospective donors and obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

    The donor pitch was handed out at an ongoing conference in Aventura, Fla., this weekend, where Media Matters founder David Brock has assembled deep-pocketed allies to plot strategy under a Donald Trump administration.

    According to the briefing materials, Media Matters is seeking $13.4 million in funding in 2017 to support a staff of 81, including a new "dedicated team of media analysts" devoted to tracking statements by Trump and members of his administration.

    The donor pitch portrays the newly sworn-in president as a uniquely malignant source of misinformation.

    "What happens when the most dangerous source of misinformation is no longer right-wing radio hosts or Fox News, but the federal government itself?" the group asks.

    "The notion that the United States government under Donald Trump could become a source of misinformation is not far-fetched—and in fact seems all but inevitable," it warns. "Media Matters is prepared to confront the United States government under a proven and dangerous dissembler."

    In addition to directly challenging the administration, the group will work to affect White House policy governing media treatment and access. The donor pitch mentions efforts to "defend standard practices" in areas such as the presidential press pool and White House media credentialing.

    Those issues recently caused tensions between Trump and the White House press corps, after his transition team suggested that it might relocate the press briefing room to a larger area.

    Media Matters senior fellow Matt Gertz called the move an "insidious" effort "to flood White House press briefings with sycophants and propagandists."

    After a media backlash, Trump reversed that decision, but said that he will "just have to pick the people to go into the room."

    As it works to affect White House policy towards the press, Media Matters also hopes to ensure that reporters remain hostile to the new president.

    "Media Matters will be vigilant in holding news media accountable for even the slightest bit of normalization of Trump," the donor pitch states.

    Free Beacon reporter Joe Schoffstall contributed to this report.

    Top Far Left Organizations Bragged About Working with Facebook and Twitter to Censor and Eliminate Conservative Content

    Jim Hoft by Jim Hoft August 20, 2018 246 Comments

    In January 2017 after Hillary Clinton was shellacked in the November 2016 election top Democrat operatives at Media Matters, Share Blue, American Bridge, and CREW came together and released their two-year plan to take back power in Washington DC.

    Share Blue is a far left website that works with the Democrat party and claims to reach 140 million people a month.
    The Washington Free Beacon obtained a copy of this document

    The Free Beacon published this lengthy document by David Brock, the founder of Soros-funded Media Matters website, from a January donor retreat.

    The 49 page memo outlined how the George Soros-funded groups Media Matters, American Bridge, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) and Shareblue planned to undermine President Trump’s agenda and help Democrats win control of Congress and the White House by 2020.

    On page two of the plan these top far left organizations announced their strategy.

    They will work with the tech giants to eliminate “right wing propaganda and fake news.”
    It is right there on page 2: (see image)

    The document then claims that Media Matters and far left groups have “access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites” so they can “systemically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data.”
    According to their report these far left groups have been working with Facebook and Twitter to eliminate conservative content.

    Via The Daily Wire:

    “The earlier we can identify a fake news story, the more effectively we can quash it,” the memo states. “With this new technology at our fingertips, researchers monitoring news in real time will be able to identify the origins of a lie with mathematical precision, creating an early warning system for fake news and disinformation.”

    The memo went on to state that Media Matters had a discussion with Facebook on how to crack down on fake news, including Media Matters providing the social media giant with “a detailed map of the constellation of right-wing Facebook pages that had been the biggest purveyors of fake news.” The memo also bragged that Media Matters provided Google with “the information necessary to identify 40 of the worst fake new sites” that would be prevented from using Google’s advertising network.

    And this is exactly what happened.

    In 2016 The Gateway Pundit was one of the few conservative sites that supported candidate Trump – along with Breitbart, The Drudge Report, ********, Zero Hedge, Conservative Treehouse and several others.

    In 2017 Harvard and Columbia Journalism Review found that The Gateway Pundit was the 4th most influential conservative news source in the 2016 election.
    Because of this we were targeted and have seen our numbers related to Facebook and Twitter decline dramatically.

    This had nothing to do with the quality of our posts as we have proof that our generic numbers are up and and continue to increase.

    In February Facebook launched another algorithm change to their platform. With the changes we saw our traffic dwindle even further.

    We weren’t the only ones to be affected. The algorithmic change caused President Donald Trump’s engagement on Facebook posts to plummet a whopping 45%.

    In contrast, according to Breitbart’s Allum Bokhari, Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) do not appear to have suffered a comparable decline in Facebook engagement.

    Facebook took our money for advertising and promised a fair playing field. Facebook lied to us and every conservative group in America. And, according to far left groups, Facebook is working with liberal organizations to eliminate conservative content.

    A recent Pew Study found that 71% of Americans see how tech giants are censoring political content.

    And they are. (see image)

    A Gateway Pundit June study of top conservative news outlets found that Facebook has eliminated 93% of traffic to top conservative websites.

    Facebook began eliminating conservative content after the 2016 election.

    Soros-Funded Group: ‘We Need to Abolish ICE’ to Protect Accused Visa Fraudsters

    An open borders lobbying group, partially funded by billionaire George Soros, says “we need to abolish” the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to protect foreign nationals accused of visa fraud.

    This week, ICE announced additional arrests in the case of a fake university set up by the Department of Homeland Security that’s sole purpose was to keep foreign nationals on student visas in the United States under the disguise that they were enrolled in school.

    In total, about 250 foreign nationals have been arrested in the scheme. Justice Department officials said “100 percent of the foreign citizen students never spent a single second in a classroom” because the fake university had no teachers and provided no educational services.

    A number of the foreign nationals had transferred to the fake university after leaving schools that had lost accreditation. Federal agents said the foreign students merely enrolled at the fake university to keep their student visa and eventually land a diploma, knowing that they would not be receiving an actual education. Also arrested in the scheme are those accused of helping recruit foreign students.

    The group United We Dream wrote in a post that the case underscores why ICE must be abolished in order to end all interior immigration enforcement.

    United We Dream

    @UNITEDWEDREAM
    All year, ICE has been running a fraudulent university to bait and arrest (mostly Indian) immigrants looking for a chance at higher education. They’ve arrested 250 people. This agency is vile. We need to #AbolishICE! https://twitter.com/mollymckew/statu...10642497867783

    Molly McKew

    @MollyMcKew
    Why is this not getting coverage?

    DHS set up a fake university in Detroit, with fake accreditation.

    Foreign students were given visas to attend. DHS collected millions of $$$ in tuition.

    Now 100s of students were arrested & deported bc school was fake. https://www.freep.com/story/news/loc...it/4277686002/

    9:30 AM - Nov 27, 2019

    “All year, ICE has been running a fraudulent university to bait and arrest (mostly Indian) immigrants looking for a chance at higher education,” the group wrote on Twitter. “They’ve arrested 250 people. This agency is vile. We need to #AbolishICE!”

    United We Dream is partially funded by Soros’s Open Society Foundation. The group also works closely in promoting an end to national borders, as well as amnesty for all illegal aliens, with the Soros-funded American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA).

    At any given time, there are roughly 40,000 foreign students in the U.S. who attend schools deemed to be “diploma mills,” — that is, institutions that pose as universities to provide foreign nationals with student visas and diplomas.

    New Koch-Soros foreign policy think tank headed by Iran deal advocates

    D.C.’s newest foreign policy think tank, funded by libertarian Charles Koch and left-wing George Soros, was co-founded by a nonprofit leader who was integral to the passage of the controversial Iran nuclear deal.

    Trita Parsi and the group's other four co-founders, Andrew Bacevich, Stephen Wertheim, Eli Clifton, and Suzanne DiMaggio, are all pro-Iran deal advocates, as well as harsh critics of U.S. foreign policy and of Israel.

    Parsi, the founder of the National Iranian American Council and an adjunct professor at Georgetown University, was a prominent and instrumental go-between for the governments of Iran and the U.S. during the nuclear deal negotiations.

    The U.S. entered the controversial nuclear deal with the Iranian regime under the Obama administration in 2015, and President Trump withdrew from the deal in 2018, calling it “defective at its core.”

    Proponents of the deal pointed to the limitations that it put on Iranian uranium enrichment in exchange for the lifting of sanctions. Opponents of the agreement said that it gave billions to the Iranian regime without addressing problems such as Iran’s support for international terrorism.

    Parsi wrote in 2017 that he was consulted by the U.S. government during the Iran deal negotiations while in close communication with the Iranian regime, too.

    “It wasn’t unusual for me to attend a briefing at the White House a few days before a round of negotiations and then have a two-hour conversation with the Iranian foreign minister in his private hotel room in the midst of negotiations a few days later,” Parsi said, referring to Javad Zarif.

    The new Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, funded with $500,000 each from the libertarian and left-wing billionaires, says it is named for President John Quincy Adams, who said that America “goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy.”

    The new think tank was announced earlier this week in an op-ed which said the new group “is one of the most remarkable partnerships in modern American political history” and that Koch and Soros believe “the United States must end its ‘forever war’ and adopt an entirely new foreign policy.”

    Koch has given millions to right-leaning causes through the Charles Koch Institute, which also advocates a noninterventionist foreign policy. Soros, a strident critic of U.S. foreign policy, has given billions to left-wing causes around the world through his Open Society Foundations.

    Soros also helped bankroll pro-Iran deal lobbying efforts, donating tens of thousands of dollars in an effort to promote the agreement. Soros' organizations donated to the Ploughshares Fund, which Obama foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes credited as part of the "echo chamber" the administration created to convince Congress and the press to back the deal. Ploughshares has also funded Parsi's nonprofit organization.

    Zarif, one of the most influential advocates for the Iran deal, has also reportedly spoken about his long-time relationship working with some Soros groups. Parsi slammed “Trump's sabotage of the Iran deal” earlier this year and has praised Zarif’s political acumen, painting him as a moderate alternative to extremists within the Iranian regime.

    Parsi has long been dogged by claims that he and NIAC are working on behalf of Iran, accusations which he has denied. Parsi and NIAC filed a libel lawsuit, later thrown out by a federal judge, against writer Seid Hassan Daioleslam over his claims that Parsi and NIAC were agents of the Iranian regime.

    Parsi's co-founders also have ties to the controversial agreement.

    Andrew Bacevich, a retired Army colonel and professor at Boston University, was a signatory to a 2016 report prepared by Parsi’s group, which advocated for the Iran deal as a way to resolve tensions with Iran and stabilize the Middle East.

    Stephen Wertheim, a professor at Columbia University, believes the Iran nuclear deal was "a major diplomatic achievement" and critiqued "neoconservative" groups who "trashed" the agreement.

    Eli Clifton, a contributing editor at the left-wing foreign policy website Lobe Log and a fellow at liberal magazine The Nation, was harshly critical of Trump’s decision to withdraw from the deal, and suggested last year that Trump withdrew at the behest of three wealthy Jewish donors, Sheldon Adelson, Bernard Marcus, and Paul Singer.

    Clifton has come under criticism from conservatives for his work appearing on the pro-Palestinian Electronic Intifada website, although the site said that Clifton had not submitted articles to them. Since then, Clifton has approvingly shared links to the Electronic Intifada’s promotion of Al-Jazeera’s controversial anti-Israel documentary The Lobby.

    Suzanne DiMaggio, a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, is a foreign policy adviser for Vermont senator and Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders. DiMaggio directed New America’s U.S.-Iran Initiative, which published articles in favor of the Iran deal.

    DiMaggio was a featured speaker at a pro-Iran deal town hall put on by Sanders in May 2018, along with Ploughshares Fund President Joe Cirincione.

    And DiMaggio recently defended Iran’s decision to breach the limits on nuclear fuel placed on it by the Iran deal.

    “If you keep poking a bear, eventually it is going to hit back,” DiMaggio tweeted. “The nuclear deal was so thorough that it left Tehran with practically no bargaining chips if talks were to begin again. This move is a first step in creating leverage.”

    Rudy Giuliani Can Barely Contain Himself Over His Ukraine Findings

    by Tyler Durden
    Fri, 12/13/2019 - 17:05




    Rudy Giuliani is grinning like the Cheshire cat. His standard smile.

    For the past several weeks, the personal attorney to President Trump has been in Ukraine, interviewing witnesses and gathering evidence to shed light on what the Bidens were up to during the Obama years, and get to the bottom of claims that Kiev interfered in the 2016 US election in favor of Hillary Clinton. He has enlisted the help of former Ukrainian diplomat, Andriy Telizhenko, to gather information from politicians and ask them to participate in a documentary series in partnership with One America News Network (OANN) - which will make the case for investigating the Bidens as well as Burisma Holdings - the natural gas firm which employed the son of a sitting US Vice President in a case which reeks of textbook corruption.

    According to the Journal, Giuliani will present findings from his self-described "secret assignment" in a 20-page report.

    (Note the Wall Street Journal's use of a straw man when they write: "The allegations of Ukrainian election interference are at odds with findings by the U.S. intelligence community that Russia was behind the election interference."
    Apparently the three journalists who collaborated on the article didn't get the memo that two countries can meddle at the same time, nor did any of them read the January, 2017 Politico article: Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump backfire - which outlines how Ukrainian government officials conspired with a DNC operative to hurt the Trump campaign during the 2016 election - a move which led to the disruptive ouster of campaign chairman Paul Manafort).


    Rudy Giuliani’s trip to Kyiv this month, which he described as a “secret assignment,” included a meeting with Ukrainian lawmaker Andriy Derkach. PHOTO: PRESS OFFICE OF ANDRIY DERKACH/ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Telizhenko, the former diplomat, tells the Journal that the plan for the series was conceived during the impeachment hearings as a way for Giuliani to tell his side of the story. The former Ukrainian diplomat flew to Washington on November 20 to film with Giuliani, while in early December he accompanied America's Mayor on the Kiev trip - stopping in Budapest, Vienna and Rome.

    Rudy comes home

    Upon his return to New York on Saturday, Giuliani says he took a call from President Trump while his plane was still taxiing down the runway, according to the Wall Street Journal.

    "What did you get?" Trump asked. "More than you can imagine," answered the former New York mayor who gained notoriety in the 1980s for taking down the mob as a then-federal prosecutor.


    According to the 77-year-old Giuliani, Trump instructed him to brief Attorney General William Barr and GOP lawmakers on his findings. Soon after, the president then told reporters at the White House, "I hear he has found plenty."

    Rudy has been working on this project for a while. In late January, he conducted phone interviews with former Ukrainian prosecutors Viktor Shokin and Yiury Lutsenko. On the call was George Boyle - Giuliani's Chief Operating Officer and Director of Investigations. Boyle started as a NYPD beat cop in 1987, and was promoted to detective - eventually joining the Special Victims Squad. In short, the ever-grinning Giuliani has some serious professionals working on this.

    "When he believes he’s right, he loves taking on fights," said longtime Giuliani friend, Tony Carbonetti.

    That said, Giuliani's efforts have not gone off without a hitch. In October, two associates - Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, both of whom assisted with his Ukraine investigation, were related in October on campaign-finance charges. Both men have pleaded not guilty, while Giuliani denies wrongdoing and says they did not lobby him. Parnas, notably, was also on the January call with Shokin and Lutsenko as a translator.

    In pressing ahead on Ukraine, Mr. Giuliani has replaced the translation skills of Messrs. Parnas and Fruman with an app he downloaded that allows him to read Russian documents by holding his phone over them. But on his recent trip, he said, “despite whatever else you can say, I missed them.” -Wall Street Journal

    Trump opponents insist Giuliani is conducting shadow foreign policy and orchestrated the ouster of former US Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch - who Ukraine's new president Volodomyr Zelensky complained on a now-famous July 25 phone call accused of not recognizing his authority.

    "Just having fun while Dems and friends try to destroy my brilliant career," Giuliani wrote in a text message while
    conducting his investigation overseas.

    NewsWatch: Did Yovanovitch Press Ukraine Prosecutor to NOT Investigate Biden and Hillary-Linked Soros Activities ?


    Recent comments made by the acting Ukrainian Prosecutor during Yovonovitch’s Appointment to Ukraine signal that she may have requested him to avoid investigating Biden and the Ukraine-based Soros Group AntAc, a known financial supporter of the Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign. Did the Obama Appointed Ambassador attempt to influence Ukraine’s independent investigations? Judicial Watch is determined to find out exactly what happened, read below to discover how this new investigation is inspiring the media to fight corruption too.

    From Judicial Watch:

    Judicial Watch Sues for Documents Related to Former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch’s Alleged Intervention with Ukraine Prosecutor – (12/4/2019)

    Ukraine Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko told The New York Times that Yovanovitch “pressed him not to prosecute anti-corruption activists.” Lutsenko previously reportedly said the do-not-prosecute list included a founder of the Ukraine group Anti-Corruption Action Centre (AntAC), which was funded by George Soros foundations and the U.S. federal government.

    From The New York Post:

    There’s Great Hate for Donald Trump’s Success: Goodwin– (12/11/2019)

    Consider that former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch asked the State Department to compile a watchlist of American citizens and monitor them on social media and other means. Solomon and Giuliani were on that list, too, as were Fox anchors Lou Dobbs, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham, according to a Judicial Watch lawsuit that said the State Department deemed Yovanovitch’s request illegal.

    The implied message to Ukraine’s prosecutors was clear: Don’t target AntAC in the middle of an American presidential election in which Soros was backing Hillary Clinton to succeed another Soros favorite, Barack Obama, Ukrainian officials said. Recently, Rudy Giuliani stated that AntAC “was co-funded by the Obama administration and far-left billionaire financier George Soros,” and “was ironically under investigation for alleged corruption.

    As the coup abuse against President Trump accelerates, Judicial Watch focuses on the real Ukraine collusion scandal.

    We just sued the State Department for documents related to a reported “untouchables list” given by former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch to Ukraine Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko in late 2016 (Judicial Watch vs. U.S. Department of State) (No. 1:19-cv-03563).

    Lutsenko recently told The New York Times that Yovanovitch “pressed him not to prosecute anti-corruption activists.” Lutsenko previously reportedly said the do-not-prosecute list included a founder of the Ukraine group Anti-Corruption Action Centre (AntAC), which was funded by George Soros foundations and the U.S. federal government, and two members of the Ukrainian Parliament who vocally supported the Soros group’s agenda:

    The implied message to Ukraine’s prosecutors was clear: Don’t target AntAC in the middle of an American presidential election in which Soros was backing Hillary Clinton to succeed another Soros favorite, Barack Obama, Ukrainian officials said.

    Recently, Rudy Giuliani stated that AntAC “was co-funded by the Obama administration and far-left billionaire financier George Soros,” and “was ironically under investigation for alleged corruption, namely a ‘misplaced’ $4.4 million in U.S. funds designated to ‘fight corruption inside the former Soviet republic,’ during the 2016 presidential election in America.”
    Amb. Yovanovitch, who was recalled from her Ukraine post in May of this year by President Donald Trump, was a key witness for Democrats last month in their public impeachment hearings. Yovanovitch denied providing any do-not-prosecute “list.”

    We filed our FOIA lawsuit here in DC after the State Department failed to respond to our September 24, 2019, FOIA request for:


    • All records of communication between the Department of State and any representative of the Ukrainian government regarding any actual or proposed investigation or prosecution of the AntAC; the International Renaissance Foundation [Open Society Foundations’ office in Ukraine]; and/or Transparency International.
    • All records concerning any meeting or telephonic conversation between former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko.
    • All records related to the list of individuals and entities provided to Lutsenko by Yovanovitch in late 2016.


    Amb. Yovanovitch is on our radar for a number of issues. On October 9, 2019, we filed a FOIA request for State Department records related to the possibly illegal collection of information by Yovanovitch on prominent conservative figures, journalists and persons with ties to President Donald Trump.

    Reports suggest that the Ukrainian Embassy was a hotbed of anti-Trump, Deep State activism and tried to promote and protect leftist allies in Ukraine and the United States. As the coup attack on President Trump continues, this new federal lawsuit is designed to get to the real truth of the Deep State’s games in Ukraine.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham Announces Ukraine Hearing With Rudy Giuliani




    CHQ Staff | 10/17/19


    Senator Lindsey Graham, Chairman of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, has announced a hearing on Ukraine featuring former New York Mayor and President Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.

    In announcing the proposed, but not yet scheduled, hearing Senator Graham said, “I have heard on numerous occasions disturbing allegations by Rudy Giuliani about corruption in Ukraine and the many improprieties surrounding the firing of former Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

    “Given the House of Representatives’ behavior, it is time for the Senate to inquire about corruption and other improprieties involving Ukraine.

    “Therefore, I will offer to Mr. Giuliani the opportunity to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee to inform the Committee of his concerns.”

    What we hope Mr. Giuliani will do is reiterate before the Senate Judiciary Committee what he told John Roberts of Fox News back on September 22, 2019.

    For a refresher, or eye opener if you haven’t it before, here is a partial transcript:

    …what I'm talking about, this, it's Ukrainian collusion, which was large, significant, and proven with Hillary Clinton, with the Democratic National Committee, a woman named Chalupa, with the ambassador, with an FBI agent who's now been hired by George Soros who was funding a lot of it.

    When Biden got the prosecutor fired, the new prosecutor, who Biden approved -- you don't get to approve a prosecutor in a foreign country, unless something fishy is going on.

    The new prosecutor dropped the case, not just on Biden's kid and the crooked company that Biden's kid work for, Burisma. That was done as a matter of record in October of 2016, after the guy got tanked.
    He also dropped the case on George Soros' company called AntAC. AntAC is the company where there's documentary evidence that they were producing false information about Trump, about Biden. Fusion GPS was there.

    Go back and listen to Nellie Ohr's testimony. Nellie Ohr says that there was a lot of contract between Democrats and the Ukraine.

    Well, I have all the contacts. And, John, when the rest of this comes out, and when you look at China and the $1.5 billion that the -- that the Biden family took out of China while that guy was negotiating for us, this will be a lot bigger than Spiro Agnew.

    They have fallen into a trap.

    Later in the interview Mayor Giuliani clarifies how the whole Biden influence peddling operation works:
    …This began with someone coming to me saying, this information can clear your client about the corruption in Ukraine between the Ukraine, the Democratic Party, the ambassador, and the FBI agent who investigated the case.

    ROBERTS: But it then -- but then it morphs into Biden.

    GIULIANI: And -- inextricably combined, because Biden had the guy fired, Shokin.

    By the way, his statement is on record. The lazy press could go read it. They don't have to listen to me. There are three videotapes of prosecutors on record, available on here, that nobody has covered for five months, because this town protects Joe Biden.

    His family has been taking money from his public office for years, $1.5 billion from China, when our vice president is supposed to be impartially and independently negotiating for us? And the kid, he takes him on Air Force Two to China, and the kid...

    ROBERTS: That was in 2013.

    GIULIANI: Yes.

    And the kid, unfortunately, is a drug addict. China didn't give $1.5 billion to his kid, Biden's kid, a recovering drug addict, Kerry's stepson, and Whitey Bulger's nephew.

    Ladies and gentlemen, go look at what the press has been covering up on you.

    The set of facts that Giuliani laid out are very much in line with those documented by FactCheck.org which we analyzed in our article, “Where’s Hunter?

    The same year that Barack Obama and Joe Biden took over the White House in 2009, a general partnership formed that brought together Hunter Biden, son of then-Vice President Joe Biden, Christopher Heinz, stepson of then-Sen. John Kerry (later to be Secretary of State), and Devon Archer, a classmate of Heinz’s from Yale.

    As conservative author Peter Schweizer details in his book “Secret Empires,” Biden and Archer, along with James Bulger of the consultancy firm the Thornton Group, took several meetings in 2010 with high-profile business and government interests in China. As Rudy Giuliani has pointed out, James Bulger is the nephew of mobster Whitey Bulger and the son of former Massachusetts state Sen. Billy Bulger.

    Schweizer came across an account of the meetings posted by the Thornton Group — in Chinese — in which Chinese executives expressed their “warm welcome” to the “Thornton Group, with its US partner Rosemont Seneca chairman Hunter Biden (second son of the now Vice President Joe Biden).” According to the Thornton Group’s account — a copy of which Schweizer emailed to FactCheck.org — the purpose of the meetings was to “explore the possibility of commercial cooperation and opportunity.”

    So, Joe Biden becomes Obama’s “point man” on Ukraine and suddenly Hunter gets a $50,000 a month seat on the board of a controversial Ukrainian energy company. Then Biden takes his son Hunter to China and Hunter’s company later inks a billion-dollar deal with China, but there’s nothing illegal going on say, Biden and his attorneys.

    We can understand how and why someone in China might want to do business with Christopher Heinz, he’s the son of the late Senator John Heinz and an heir to the multi-billion-dollar Heinz ketchup money – he can put skin in the game. But Hunter Biden? The only thing he could put in the game is his father’s name and access to his father’s influence. That may or may not be illegal, but it sure stinks of at least the appearance of corruption.

    We hope the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with Rudy Giuliani comes off, but what we hope for even more fervently is a hearing with Hunter Biden that will give him the opportunity to explain what, beside his father’s name, he put into these foreign business ventures.

    The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we invite CHQ readers and friends to call Senator Lindsey Graham and urge him to subpoena Hunter Biden once he completes the Rudy Giuliani hearing.

    Latvian government says it flagged ‘suspicious’ Hunter Biden payments in 2016

    DECEMBER 17, 2019
    ADMIN



    As the U.S. presidential race began roaring to life in 2016, authorities in the former Soviet republic of Latvia flagged a series of “ suspicious” financial transactions to Hunter Biden and other colleagues at a Ukrainian natural gas company and sought Kiev’s help investigating, according to documents and interviews.

    The Feb. 18, 2016 alert to Ukraine came from the Latvian prosecutorial agency responsible for investigating money laundering, and it specifically questioned whether Vice President Joe Biden’s younger son and three other officials at Burisma Holdings were the potential beneficiaries of suspect funds.

    “The Office for Prevention of Laundering of Proceeds Derived from Criminal Activity … is currently investigating suspicious activity of Burisma Holdings Limited,” the Latvian agency also known as the FIU wrote Ukraine’s financial authorities.

    The memo was released to me by the Ukrainian General Prosecutor’s Office and confirmed by the Latvian embassy to the United States.

    Latvian authorities said they did not get any incriminating information back from Ukraine to warrant further investigation and did not take additional action in 2016.

    But the memo adds to the mounting evidence that there was ongoing investigative activity surrounding Burisma Holdings and Hunter Biden’s compensation as a board member in the weeks just before Joe Biden forced the firing of the Ukraine prosecutor overseeing the Burisma investigation in spring 2016.

    The Latvian law enforcement memo identified a series of loan payments totaling about $16.6 million that were routed from companies in Beliz and the United Kingdom to Burisma through Ukraine’s PrivatBank between 2012 and 2015.

    The flagged funds were “partially transferred” to Hunter Biden, a board member at Burisma since May 2014, and three other officials working for the Ukrainian natural gas company, the Latvian memo said.

    The letter asked Ukrainian officials for any evidence about whether the funds were involved in corruption and whether Ukrainian officials were investigating Burisma and the recipients of the money.

    “On the grounds of possible legalization of proceeds derived from criminal activity and corruption, please grant us permission to share the information included in the reply to this request with Latvian law enforcement entities for intelligence purposes only,” the letter said.
    Arturs Saburovs, the Third Secretary at the Latvian embassy in Washington, confirmed his country flagged the transactions in February 2016 after seeing public reports that Burisma was under investigation in Ukraine and that Hunter Biden served on the company’s board. He said Latvia did not receive any evidence back from Ukraine to further its investigation.
    “The Latvian FIU (Financial Intelligence Unit) is the institution which receives, processes, and analyses reports on banking transactions as well as conducts information exchange with foreign FIUs,” he explained. “If a matter comes to public attention as it did here, the FIU processes that information.

    “In this case, the Latvian FIU reached out to its Ukrainian counterpart seeking additional clarifications,” he added. “Information was received, yet no incriminatory evidence for further analysis was provided by the Ukrainian authorities.”

    Saburovs said authorities in his country could find no evidence they flagged the same transactions to U.S. authorities even though Hunter Biden and two others named in the letter were Americans and the U.S. firm, Rosemont Seneca Bohais that was connected to Hunter Biden, routinely received monthly payments totaling more than $166,600 from Burisma.
    “We do not possess such information,” he said when asked about contacts with U.S. officials.
    A lawyer for Hunter Biden and Joe Biden’s campaign did not respond to requests Monday seeking comment.

    The Latvian correspondence adds to a growing body of evidence that questions and investigations of Burisma were swirling in early 2016 just before Joe Biden used his authority as vice president to force the firing of Ukraine Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin in March 2016 by threatening to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid.

    Shokin was overseeing a wide-ranging Ukrainian investigation of Burisma and has said he was making plans to interview Hunter Biden when he was fired by Ukraine’s president and parliament in March 2016 under pressure from Joe Biden.

    Biden and his defenders have said he forced the firing of Shokin because the Ukraine prosecutor was an ineffective corruption fighter; Shokin alleges he was dismissed because he wouldn’t end the Burisma probe.

    The Biden family has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, with Jill Biden offering the latest defense of her son this past weekend. “I know my son. I know my son’s character. Hunter did nothing wrong. And that’s the bottom line,” she told MSNBC.

    But recently, multiple State Department witnesses testified during the impeachment hearings against President Trump that Hunter Biden’s role at Burisma while his father oversaw U.S.-Ukraine policy as vice president created the appearance of a conflict of interest. One testified e even blocked a project with Burisma because State was concerned about allegations of corruption.

    When I first divulged Joe Biden’s role in Shokin’s firing last year, Democrats and their allies in the media and Ukrainian civil society organizations claimed it was no big deal because the Burisma investigation in Ukraine was dormant at the time Biden took action.

    But since that time, significant evidence has emerged that the investigation was, in fact, active and that Burisma itself had concerns about the corruption allegations swirling around it.

    For instance, Ukrainian prosecutors confirmed in December 2015 they transferred their investigative files to detectives at the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine to pursue several leads.

    On Feb. 2, 2016, the Ukraine prosecutor general’s office secured a court order to re-seize the assets of Burisma Holdings founder Mykola Zlochevsky. Officers went to the home, placed seizure notices and took items from the home that included a luxury car, officials said.
    About two weeks later, the Latvian suspicious financial transactions memo was transmitted to Ukrainian authorities.

    And then in late February, according to U.S. documents recently released under the Freedom of Information Act, Burisma’s American representatives pressed the U.S. State Department to try to help end the corruption allegations against the company. You can read those documents here.

    By mid-March 2016, State’s top official for Ukraine policy publicly called for Shokin’s ouster, and less than three weeks later Joe Biden managed to force Ukraine’s president to fire Shokin by threatening to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees.

    Almost immediately, Burisma’s American legal team was in Ukraine seeking to meet with Shokin’s replacement at the Ukraine prosecutor general’s office.

    A summary of an April 6, 2016 meeting between Burisma representatives and Ukraine prosecutors – released by the Prosecutor General’s Office – states “false information” was used to justify Shokin’s firing.

    Whatever the case, the corruption investigations were dropped in late 2016 and early 2017, and Burisma paid a penalty for tax issues.

    But early in 2019, NABU and the Ukraine prosecutor general’s office announced they were reopening the investigation into Burisma, specifically to revisit the allegations about money laundering, according to the notice of suspicion released by prosecutors in that country. You can read NABU’s request to reopen the probe here.

    That probe is ongoing and recently was expanded to look at other issues. And the entire Burisma episode is now part of the larger impeachment proceedings playing out in America against President Donald Trump.

    Default Re: Soros's Progressive Cabal with Democrats to Weaken America

    Thousands of Soros docs released by alleged Russian-backed hackers

    BY JULIAN HATTEM - 08/15/16 02:53 PM EDT



    Hackers believed to be backed by Russia this weekend publicly released more than 2,000 documents connected to billionaire Democratic donor George Soros and his Open Society Foundations.

    The documents detail the ins and outs of Soros’s groups, which have funded a slew of public health, human rights and education programs around the globe, while also mounting opposition to hard-right conservatives in the U.S.

    “Soros is an oligarch sponsoring the Democratic party, Hillary Clinton, hundreds of politicians all over the world,” the hackers posted on the website DCLeaks this Saturday when they released the documents.

    “This website is designed to let everyone inside George Soros’ Open Society Foundation and related organisations,” they said. “These documents shed light on one of the most influential network operating worldwide.”

    The hackers, who describe themselves as “American hacktivists who respect and appreciate freedom of speech, human rights and government of the people,” have been linked to the same group that exposed emails from Democratic Party leaders in the days before that party’s national convention last month. The group this weekend also posted messages from Republican state officials and national politicians, including Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).

    Cybersecurity firm ThreatConnect has called DCLeaks “another Russian-backed influence outlet” based on similarities with the previously identified Russian hackers, nicknamed Fancy Bear.

    The documents released over the weekend are grouped into sections relating to the U.S., Europe, Asia, the World Bank and other topics.

    The material offers a look behind the curtain of one of the nation’s preeminent nonprofit groups. Soros’s staunch focus on electoral processes around the globe has been a target of critics, and the wide net of activities is likely to inspire their outrage.

    Included in the trove are drafts of fact sheets, calendars, memos, funding reports and similar materials, as one might expect from a major nonprofit group.

    Some documents in particular are likely to stir ire on the right, where Soros is regarded as something of a nefarious mastermind trying to exert his influence across the globe.

    A 2011 document, highlighted by The Daily Caller, details the foundations’ efforts to encourage criticism of hard-line opponents to Muslim radicalism, such as controversial personalities Frank Gaffney and Pamela Geller, who memorably organized a “Draw Muhammad” event last year.

    Another document details the multiple organizations that have received millions in funding to challenge “Israeli laws and discriminatory practices against Israel’s Palestinian minority." Opponents claim those activities undermine Israel's democratic government and security.

    Soros and the influence he wields among American liberal organizations have long been a target of scorn from conservatives, much as the billionaire Koch brothers are on the political left.

    He has reportedly committed to giving more than $25 million to Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, and other Democrats, including a $6 million contribution to pro-Clinton super-PAC Priorities USA.

    Site connected to Russian hackers posts Republican emails
    BY JOE UCHILL - 08/12/16 06:20 PM EDT

    A website tied to the hacking scandal of the Democratic Party has now posted a small batch of leaked emails from Republican campaigns and state GOP staffers.

    The emails on the site, known as DCLeaks, appear to be from state party officials and campaign staff, including that of former presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). The messages range from June to October of 2015.

    The DNC hacker or hackers known as Guccifer 2.0 used DC Leaks to promote leaks from a Clinton staffer's email to The Smoking Gun, though the hacker claimed not to have been involved with the theft of the messages.

    Most of the messages coordinate campaign activities, solicit funds, or invite or RSVP to events. The archive is largely the procedural minutia of running campaigns or state parties.

    The emails include a wide array of constituent email addresses. Many appear to be responses to mass-emails from concerned party supporters writing in to their delegates. One reply to a Stop Hillary PAC fundraising email targeting Democrats lack of support for the Benghazi commission reads, "Don’t the Republicans have a majority in Congress? Isn’t John Boehner a Republican? What is the problem that you need my $36 to help you fight back."

    The archive appears to be incomplete, with replies to emails that don't appear to be included on their own. That could mean the emails were deleted before being retrieved, or that the leaker or site decided to scrub certain items from the record.

    But that there was a leak at all runs counter to a Republican narrative that the DNC is particularly susceptible to data breaches (“What is it with Democrats that they can't maintain basic email security?” Mike Huckabee asked on Facebook).

    Guccifer 2.0 is thought to be a front name for Russian intelligence, and the site has strong circumstantial ties to the Russian group believed to be behind the hack of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

    DCLeaks claims to be the work of patriotic American activists but is written in a way that suggests non-native English speakers. Much of the leaks are email archives from critics of Russia.

    The site hosts a trove of leaked emails from Gen. Philip Breedlove, who was heavily in favor of fending off Russia during its Ukraine incursion, and George Soros, whose DC Leaks emails were promoted by the site on twitter as “Check George Soros's [Open Society Foundation] plans to counter Russian policy and traditional values.”

    DC Leaks site was initially registered by THCServers, a company that has only been the initial registrar for 14 sites since 2013. Including DC Leaks, three of those sites have been connected to the Russian hackers believed to be behind the DNC hack, including a site identified by the German government.

    The Russian hackers, nicknamed Fancy Bear, have a pattern of using domain registrars outside of United States that accept bitcoin and the Romanian THCServers fit the mold. It is registered to an email account from europe.com, which, like most of the emails connected to FancyBear, is a free web service based in Europe.

    A representative from ThreatConnect, the company that linked Fancy Bear to DCLeaks, noted that the obscure Romanian THCServer and Europe.com would be abnormal for an American hacktivist collective, and believes the sum-total is a strong circumstantial case.

    At publication time, the Republican National Convention was not yet able to authenticate the emails.

    Jeremy Corbyn and George Soros Refugee Solidarity



    On 12 September 2015 Jeremy Corbyn, as his first act as the new leader of the British Labour Party, addressed a protest in support of refugees, called Solidarity with Refugees. Corbyn stood next to Abdulaziz Alhashemi of Syria Solidarity UK (SSUK), who was draped in a flag representing UK-backed Syrian extremists, on a platform from which Clara Connolly, also of SSUK, had urged a Libya-style no-fly zone.

    Syrian Solidarity UK describes itself as ‘a network of activists committed to solidarity with the Syrian Revolution’. In practice this means making the case for greater UK involvement in Syria, above all a no-fly zone. SSUK
 claimed a large part of the credit for the March:

    Interview of Amy Goodman on March 2, 2007 - Middle East Agenda


    In an interview with Amy Goodman on March 2, 2007, U.S. General Wesley Clark (Ret.), explains that the Bush Administration planned to take out 7 countries in 5 years: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Lybia, Somalia, Sudan, Iran.

    Confirmed: Wesley Clark is an idiot.

    Retired Gen. Wesley Clark, a key military adviser for Obama, dismissed John McCain’s war record as a qualification for readiness to be president.


    Appearing on CBS' "Face the Nation," Clark downplayed the plane crash that led to McCain’s captivity during the Vietnam War, and said the squadron McCain commanded "wasn’t a wartime squadron leader."

    Unlike Clark's heroic command of the military forces at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas -- 76 Branch Davidians, 21 of whom were children, were killed in the blaze.



    "He has been a voice on the Senate Armed Services Committee. And he has traveled all over the world. But he hasn’t held executive responsibility," Clark said.

    Clark had helped drag the U.S. into a near-fiasco at the end of the Kosovo conflict, that led to such ill-feeling toward Clark in the Pentagon that
    he was fired at war's end.

    Update: 7/3/08 -- Now watch the hypocrite Clark attempt to defend his support for John Kerry. This man is a damned liar and a disgrace to the uniform -- and he's a lousy tap-dancer!


    Wesley Clark on 10/10/02: 'Let's Wait to Attack' Iraq

    Wesley Clark

    "Saddam Hussein is a cunning, stubborn and potentially irrational opponent of the United States... But there is a confusion and uncertainty among the American people about the need for war with Iraq, and especially about its urgency. This is understandable. The primary threat to American lives and interests around the world remains the terrorists of al-Qaeda... The answer to all these questions is yes, if we have the time. Well, we do. The key issue about Iraq has never been whether we should act if Saddam doesn't comply with U.N. resolutions and disarm. Rather, the problems are how we should act, and when. As for the how, the answer is clear--multilaterally, with friends and allies, with every possible effort to avoid the appearance of yet another Christian and Jewish stab at an Islamic country, with force as a last resort, and with a post-conflict plan in place to assure that the consequences of our action do not supercharge the al-Qaeda recruiting machine."

    Interesting how the Left was initially good with air strikes and invading Iraq to topple Saddam after 9/11. However when Bush's team got bogged down there and tried to nation build Iraq for stability, the Left turned on him.

    Then anti-war rhetoric began drumming against the Bush Administration highlighting how senseless intervening in the region is.

    Meanwhile under Obama the casualty rate went up 5 fold and not a peep out of the MSM.

    I believe they were only looking to quickly topple the regimes, not focused on stability in the Region. Look at how this Administrations handling of the region.

    The Quincy Institute: Challenging the Interventionist Establishment

    New anti-war think tank hopes to broaden the conversation on intervention.
    by ALI ATIA

    July 10, 2019, 12:05 AM

    Shutterstock.com



    Ben Rhodes, former President Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser, once referred to Washington’s foreign-policy establishment as “the Blob.” He was making a reference to the consensus that has become standard in U.S. foreign policy over the past several decades: that intervention is necessary and that there is no alternative to American global leadership. The Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, a new D.C. think tank launching in November, improbably funded by by George Soros and Charles Koch, hopes to challenge the influence and power wielded by the Blob. Named for the sixth president of the United States, the tank’s stated aim is to “lay a foundation for a new foreign policy centered on diplomatic engagement and military restraint.”

    Speaking with The American Spectator, Andrew Bacevich, one of the co-founders of the think tank, lamented the rise of the interventionist establishment. He claimed that it “buys into a set of faulty propositions,” including the notion of the United States as an “indispensable nation,” and an “emphasis on military power.” Since the end of the Cold War, Bacevich noted, the United States has acted unilaterally rather than multilaterally, a doctrine which has led it into unnecessarily protracted conflicts.

    The think tank has garnered much attention because of its backers Charles Koch and George Soros are viewed as opposites on the ideological spectrum. The two billionaires, who are almost universally vilified by the Left and the Right respectively, represent the Institute’s “trans-partisan” spirit, in Bacevich’s words. The other co-founders of the organization span the political spectrum: Eli Clifton, an editor at the left-leaning LobeLog; Stephen Wertheim, a professor at Columbia University; Suzanne DiMaggio, a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace; and Trita Parsi, the president of the National Iranian American Council.

    Reception to the think tank has not been all positive. In a tweet, neoconservative pundit Bill Kristol claimed the Quincy Institute wants to regress to a time before the emergence of a “US-led liberal international order.” Bacevich called such accusations of isolationism “absurd.” He emphasized that the think tank is neither isolationist nor pacifist: it hopes to advocated for a foreign policy that is “smart, not weak.”

    Asked about Donald Trump’s unconventional approach to foreign policy, Bacevich responded that the president’s administration, while perhaps not the most prudent, has made it “impossible not to ignore defects” in the establishment interventionist perspective. He added that Trump’s presidency has inadvertently brought attention to the numerous conflicts and wars in which the U.S. is engaged.

    Bacevich highlighted the think tank’s primary areas of focus as it nears its launch in November. First, the Middle East, a region where the U.S. has become increasingly entangled since the attacks of September 11. He also pointed to East Asia as an area of interest, commenting that the rise of China represents a possible threat to the United States, going so far as to warn that it could be the site of a new Cold War.

    Email Shows George Soros, Hillary Clinton Behind Firing of Bill O’Reilly

    The ousting of Bill O’Reilly from Fox News is generating major headlines. Radio host Glenn Beck shared an email he received upon request from O’Reilly’s attorneys that suggests George Soros and Media Matters might be the reason advertisers stopped sponsoring The O’Reilly Factor.

    Beck received this email from Mary Pat Boomer from The Bonner Group.

    One of the countless reasons Clinton lost the election was the strength of the conservative media in shooting down liberal “fake news”. Clinton is widely reported to be festering with rage following her brutal, humiliating defeat to a man she loathed and hated. If the Clinton connections insinuated in the Broomer email prove to be true, it would pave the way to start many more investigations into how heinous and deep Clinton’s vendetta against the right runs. It also further illustrates how George Soros should be high up on Interpol’s list of Most Wanted.

    On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck and guest Bill O'Reilly highlighted the most important takeaways from Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report, which reveals the depth of corruption involved in the FBI's efforts to derail Donald Trump's presidential campaign in 2016.

    O'Reilly emphasized that all Americans should be focused on the "very unsettling" and undeniable discovery that the FBI, "the most powerful investigative agency in the world, not just in the country," colluded to target Donald Trump "before and after the 2016 election."

    Glenn and O'Reilly also discussed the Bonner Group, a Washington, D.C.-based Democratic fundraising group, backed by George Soros, whose primary agenda in 2016 was to keep Trump out of the Oval Office, and their connections with former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

    The Soros plan to weaponize cities, destroy the nation state

    By World Tribune on November 29, 2019

    Special to WorldTribune.com

    Corporate WATCH
    By Joe Schaeffer

    A globalist gathering that runs alongside the United Nations General Assembly every September has as part of its agenda a plan in partnership with George Soros to use the local governing bodies of major cities to flood Western countries with Third World immigrants and refugees. What does the successful implementation of this policy mean for the nation state?
    Nothing good, as the following makes clear.

    Concordia bills itself as a “nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to actively fostering, elevating, and sustaining cross-sector partnerships for social impact.” Its Annual Summit is designed to run “alongside” the UN General Assembly in New York each year. “Bringing together decision-makers and opinion-formers in the public, private and nonprofit sectors, as well as the next generation of partnership-builders, the Annual Summit advanced critical global discussions and transformed conversations into action,” Concordia said of its 2018 session.


    George Soros. / Wikimedia Commons

    On page 43 of the group’s 2018 summit report can be found a summation of an astonishing panel titled “Cities & the Private Sector Take the Lead for Refugees & Migrants.” Patrick Gaspard, president of progressive globalist billionaire Soros’s Open Society Foundations, personally served as a featured member of this program. The panel “laid the foundation for Open Society Foundations‘ co-hosted strategic dialogues focused on refugee sponsorship, private sector investment and advocacy, and city-level policies designed to improve human migration,” the report states.

    Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms was another of the “four leaders” on this panel, and her moves to end the Georgia megacity’s cooperation with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) were specifically praised in the report.

    A second “strategic dialogue” session titled “Cities & Global Migration: Innovation, Partnership & Leadership, was “chaired by Dr. Colleen Thouez, Director of Welcoming & Integrated Societies Division at Open Society Foundations.” This second panel was much more forthright on the goal of using cities to thwart and even overcome the will of national governments on immigration policy. The report states that this panel “brought together city leadership from around the world to share learnings on what can be done at the municipal level, particularly when federal policies fail.”

    The passage that follows that sentence is crucial:

    “The session made clear that cities, as global centers of migration, have started to look to each other for support in the face of restrictive national policies, and there is a call for increased collaboration.”

    The theme of defying national governance is repeated often on this “dialogue” panel. “Many cities represented in the dialogue (and around the world) have refused to differentiate between legal and illegal migrants, despite federal policies,” the report boasts.

    If you thought the rise of so-called “sanctuary cities” in the U.S. was merely a case of progressive urbanites virtue signaling their wokeness on a local level, this report proves otherwise. It is all part of a coordinated global-scale plan.

    Concordia posted the video of this second panel on its official YouTube page. During the discussion, Atlanta Mayor Bottoms utters a shocking quote that reveals the true goals of the foreign invasion of our cities.

    At the 5:40 mark of the video, Bottoms declares:

    “As we spoke this morning there is a quote from one of my favorite writers Audre Lord that kept playing in my mind, and it was that revolution is not a one-time event. And I think of that often, especially in the work that we are doing throughout our various cities in ways that may seem to be small in scale but really are a part of a larger conversation and a larger revolution, if you will, as it relates to how we address our issues of immigration and migration.”

    Following the trail of this admitted urban insurgency movement, one can see that it is rapidly becoming multi-dimensional. Soros is now funding a new group called the Mayors Migration Council. Its Leadership Board includes Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. “The Mayors Migration Council (MMC) is a new initiative to help cities have their voices and interests reflected in international deliberations and policies concerning refugees and migrants,” the organization states on its website. The logo of Soros’s Open Society Foundations is prominently featured at the bottom of the front page of the site.

    “Cities and city networks carry out urban diplomacy at the global level on a range of issues and are increasingly involved in migration policy,” the Council declares. “The MMC’s distinguishing feature and added value will be to act as a focal point of expertise to support cities and city networks so as to enhance their voice, action and influence on migration and refugee issues.”

    An Oct. 30 tweet by the Council goes so far as to brazenly state that empowering cities on immigration policy is part of a move toward a “new world order”:

    CityLab is pulling no punches when it comes to promoting this bold new governing agenda. “Cities, in particular, are taking the lead in ushering in an organically evolving new ‘networked’ world order, where NGOs, community activists, private corporations, non-national states, and other stakeholders all collaborate and offer their unique perspective to locate solutions to our common problems,” the “Perspective” article written by two Georgetown University scholars proclaims.

    “No longer can our global problems be solved by just one actor — nation states. Our world has moved beyond the days when this arrangement made practical and political sense.”Of course it should not be surprising that a platform tied to Bloomberg would take such an aggressive urban supremacy stance. After all, Bloomberg himself wrote in a 2015 piece for Foreign Affairs magazine of the dawning of a new age of ascendancy for the major cities of the world, terming it the time of the “Metropolitan Generation.”“As those in the Metropolitan Generation assume leadership positions, cities will become not just more culturally significant but also more politically powerful,” Bloomberg wrote. “Influence will shift gradually away from national governments and toward cities, especially in countries that suffer from bureaucratic paralysis and political gridlock.”

    But Concordia seems especially close to George Soros. It was at the 2016 Concordia Annual Summit where Soros first publicly discussed his infamous pledge to “invest” $500 million in refugees. It has now become clear that fostering an inflated power for cities so they can facilitate the foreign invasion of their home nations is a key facet of this investment.

    Concordia lists numerous other curious foundations, institutes and corporations as supporters. The 2019 summit reveals the cheap labor-addicted U.S. Chamber of Commerce as a “Programming Partner.” USA Today and Yahoo Finance are listed as “Media Partners.” Among “Lead” and “Principal” programming sponsors are noted companies such as AT&T, Coca Cola, Merck and Uber. “Corporate Programming Sponsors” include Barbie (featured in the 2019 summit report for its association with Concordia), Cargill, Comcast NBCUniversal, Mary Kay cosmetics, Trane heating and air conditioning and Walmart.

    “Concordia Patron Members” are detailed at the end of the report. They include Bayer, Exxon Mobil, Hewlett-Packard, McDonald’s and Philip Morris International. Joining the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in the globalist faux-conservative ranks is the George W. Bush Institute, also listed as a patron member. Joining Barbie in the globalism-for-kids ranks is the Sesame Workshop, i.e., Sesame Street.

    Washington, D.C. Swamp organizations the Atlantic Council and the Wilson Center are listed alongside the George W. Bush Institute as “Programming Partners” for the 2018 summit. The laughably compromised international news service Thomson Reuters is listed as a “Lead Programming Sponsor” for the event.

    “A call was made from multiple participants for more collaboration among cities for a pro-immigrant agenda,” the report on the 2018 Concordia strategy session reads. Thanks to the financial largesse and networked influence of George Soros and the unflinching support of numerous private foundations and well-known corporations, the drive to create an urban Trojan Horse to turn the swelling size of cities against their own nations is well underway.

    Beware Soros-Funded Hijacking of US Census

    Beware Soros-Funded Hijacking of US Census

    By Michelle Malkin • April 23, 2019 11:06 PM

    Beware Soros-Funded Hijacking of US Census
    by Michelle Malkin

    2019
    “Are you a U.S. citizen?”

    Only in self-defeating, sovereignty-eroding America is the idea of asking whether people living in America are American citizens for the American census a matter of controversy.
    On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments on whether the Trump administration can include a citizenship question on the high-stakes 2020 Census questionnaire. Thank goodness, the conservative majority indicated support for allowing it. There’s already such a question on the annual American Community Survey administered by the Census Bureau. It was asked in long-form questionnaires sent to a sample of households in 2000. And it was regularly asked in historical census forms from 1820-1950.

    But we live in a Trump-deranged age, so now it’s tantamount to an international human rights crime to ask anyone about citizenship status at any time for any reason. Heaven forbid we inconvenience or discomfit legal noncitizens or illegal immigrants with a question!

    Open borders activists, left-wing immigration lawyers and identity politics radicals exploded on cue:

    –Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder decried the “unconstitutional and irresponsible action” to “suppress the count in minority communities.”
    –The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee fumed about the “political stunt that unfairly targets immigrant communities throughout our country in an attempt to SILENCE immigrants and benefit Republicans.”
    –Histrionic social justice actress Alyssa Milano called it an “attack on immigrant communities and our democracy itself.”
    –Jorge Luis Vasquez Jr. of LatinoJustice, funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundations, vented that a citizenship question would “damage all our daily lives for decades.”
    –Kristen Clarke, president of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, another Soros-funded outfit, which sued over the citizenship question, blasted the “scheme to hijack the 2020 Census.”
    –The Soros-funded Asian Americans Advancing Justice lobbying group condemned Trump as “racially and politically motivated.”

    Let’s all practice our deep pranayama breathing and ground ourselves in reality. It’s the radical left, much of it fueled with Soros’ money, that has hijacked the U.S. Census, not President Donald Trump. “No Illegal Alien Left Behind” is crucial to their strategy. Why?

    Remember: The Census is used to divvy up seats in the House as a proportion of their population based on the head count. The redistribution of power extends to presidential elections because the Electoral College is pegged to the size of congressional delegations. More people equal more seats. More illegal immigrants equal more power. Indeed, the Center for Immigration Studies determined that in the 2000 election cycle, the presence of noncitizens (illegal immigrants, temporary visitors and green card holders) caused nine seats in the House to switch hands. California added six seats it would not have had otherwise. Texas, New York and Florida each gained a seat. Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin each lost a seat. Montana, Kentucky and Utah each failed to secure a seat they would otherwise have gained.

    Our Founding Fathers explicitly warned against the perils of foreigners manipulating representation by overwhelming the country. Immigration scholar and author Daniel Horowitz points to Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story’s prophetic admonition: “If aliens might be admitted indiscriminately to enjoy all the rights of citizens at the will of a single state, the Union might itself be endangered by an influx of foreigners, hostile to its institutions, ignorant of its powers, and incapable of a due estimate of its privileges.”

    Statesman Roger Sherman similarly emphasized the need to “guard against an improper mode of naturalization” by states adopting “easier terms.”

    Too late. Multiple illegal immigrant amnesties, coupled with massive legal immigration, failure to deport visa overstayers and the metastasis of sanctuary policies, have taken their toll. Moreover, our constitutionally mandated decennial count has become a full-employment program for ideologically driven liberal interest groups cashing in on the census-gathering process and reshaping the electoral landscape. During the last census under President Barack Obama, with $300 billion in federal funding at stake, social justice groups from Soros-funded ACORN to Soros-funded Voto Latino to the Soros-allied SEIU were enlisted to count heads and help noncitizens feel “safe.”

    The Census boondoggle has become a tax-subsidized national future Democratic voter outreach drive. Soros’ operations, along with 77 other liberal foundations, have invested $30 million to make illegal immigrants count. The Open Society Institute’s grantees and partners on coopting the Census for Democrat gains include the Southern Coalition for Social Justice, Miami Workers Center, Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Southwest Workers Union, New York Community Trust, New York Foundation, Center for American Progress, People for the American Way and the Funders Census Initiative. A recently leaked internal board document revealed that the Soros network has coordinated efforts for the past four years to “influence appropriations for the Census Bureau” and add new racial and ethnic categories.

    The Census Bureau will need 500,000 temporary workers to conduct the count in what will already be a hyperpolarized election year. However the Supreme Court rules on the citizenship question, the Trump administration must ensure that Open Borders Inc. does not co-opt the enumerator corps. As SorosWorld well understands:

    Power lies not just with who is being counted, but who’s doing the counting.



    Top Democratic donors, lawmakers gather to plot 2020 strategy
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, former President Barack Obama and DNC chair Tom Perez are all appearing at the Democracy Alliance conference.

    By MAGGIE SEVERNS
    11/15/2019 10:56 AM EST



    The Democracy Alliance, a secretive group of donors on the left who collectively spend hundreds of millions of dollars on politics, is spending this week revving up members to pour money into the 2020 election, warning that inaction could extend President Donald Trump’s time in office.

    In opening remarks to donors at a Washington hotel, Democracy Alliance President Gara LaMarche cautioned that “we can’t afford one iota of complacency” during the upcoming election.

    “Donald Trump is competitive in key battleground states and could very well win reelection,” LaMarche said, according to written remarks viewed by POLITICO. “Does this scare the hell out of you? If so, good! Stay scared! We have 51 weeks to work our asses off to make sure that Donald Trump is repudiated and removed from office next November.”

    Former President Barack Obama and 2018 Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams headlined the event, which runs from Wednesday through Saturday, and a slew of current and former lawmakers and officials will appear, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

    Party leaders will outline their road map for Democrats in the 2020 election and strategize over everything from voter registration to combating online disinformation.

    One panel this week, billed as a “power 2020 breakfast,” featured Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chair Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chair Rep. Cheri Bustos in a “frank, off-the-record conversation about the challenges and opportunities next year’s election brings,” according to an agenda reviewed by POLITICO.

    Other prominent Democrats made unofficial appearances: Former Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota gabbed with attendees on a couch in the lobby on Wednesday evening, before the opening reception for the conference. Franken resigned from his seat in 2018 amid multiple sexual misconduct allegations, but he has recently begun making more public appearances and was the subject of a profile in The New Yorker.
    Members of the Democracy Alliance, which has included billionaire George Soros and current presidential candidate Tom Steyer pledge to give a minimum of $200,000 to causes approved by the group each year, though some give significantly more.

    Representatives from the Democratic Governors Association, the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee and a host of other key organizations were among those on hand for the event. Democracy Alliance donors attended sessions focused on elections in the Great Lakes region, and there were multiple panels on building power in the South and Southwest, a focus for the donor group.

    While most of the conference is focused on the 2020 election, one panel turned to foreign policy and the recent partnership between billionaire George Soros and Charles Koch on foreign policy: a new think tank called The Quincy Institute. California Rep. Ro Khanna and a Quincy Institute leader headlined the session, titled “Ending America’s Endless Wars: A new path forward for foreign policy.”

    Some donors to the Democracy Alliance, such as San Francisco activist Steve Phillips, a Cory Booker supporter, chose 2020 candidates early in the primary. But others interviewed by POLITICO, though still committed to defeating Trump, were largely ambivalent about the contenders vying to take on the president.

    And for the most part, they did not express relief or significant enthusiasm at the headline-making late entry of Deval Patrick or the potential addition of Michael Bloomberg to the 2020 primary field.

    “I’m down on all the frontrunners,” said David desJardins, a Silicon Valley investor and former board member of the Democracy Alliance, who expressed a longing for a candidate capable of “bringing people together” to play a leading role. Politics, desJardins added, “is all about picking fights.”
