George Soros – Neocon

Russia is presenting an alternative that poses a fundamental challenge to the values and principles on which the European Union was originally founded. It is based on the use of force that manifests itself in repression at home and aggression abroad, as opposed to the rule of law.

Who does this sound like? George Bush? Donald Rumsfeld?

Or how about this quote?

The collapse of Ukraine would be a tremendous loss for NATO, the European Union, and the United States. A victorious Russia would become much more influential within the EU and pose a potent threat to the Baltic states with their large ethnic Russian populations. Instead of supporting Ukraine, NATO would have to defend itself on its own soil. This would expose both the EU and the US to the danger they have been so eager to avoid: a direct military confrontation with Russia.

This sounds a whole lot like Bush’s fight them over there so we don’t have to fight them over here rhetoric.

This is coming from a man who said, “the removal of George Bush from office is a matter of life and death.   By declaring a ‘war on terror’ after September 11, we set the wrong agenda for the world. … when you wage war, you inevitably create innocent victims.” These words are coming from the new book by George Soros entitled Wake Up Europe!

I guess we now know where George’s loyalty lies.  It’s not with the United States homeland.  For when the Russian bear threatens Eastern Europe, where he was born, he sings a different tune.

This is coming from the man who also has donated hundreds of millions to progressive, leftist causes–and is a major reason Barack Obama was elected twice and has served up his own unique brand of anti-American appeasement.

Any rational person can make the argument that the election of Barack Obama led to the Russian aggression we have seen.  It gave Putin the green light.  The famous Obama quote to Russian Prime Minister Medvedev  (“Tell Vladimir I can be more flexible after the election”) rings true.

Soros just didn’t envision Obama being more flexible in Eastern Europe.  Karma is a biage, right?

Maybe Europe will wake up.  Maybe the United States will elect a strong leader after eight years of being led by a failed community organizer.  Maybe the Russian people will rise up and demand a free and open system of government.

Or just maybe, Putin will continue to take land–and America will have to save their skins one more time.  In any event, the actions of George Soros will have been instrumental bringing on the first shooting war between two European countries since the 1940s.

Revealed: Find Out Who Actually Runs The Media…

One of the major speakers at last week’s “New Populism” conference was Larry Cohen, president of the Communications Workers of America (CWA), a labor union that represents online writers, reporters, editorial assistants, editorial artists, and correspondents at major news organizations.

Cohen gave his speech after returning from the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) conference, where Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, was announced as winner of the title of “the world’s worst boss” for trying to keep prices low for consumers and opposing union control of his workplace.

Bezos, the new owner of The Washington Post, will have to negotiate with The Newspaper Guild, which merged with the CWA in 1995 and represents nearly 900 editorial and newsroom workers at the Post.

“Amazon has successfully fended off U.S. labor unions since its founding in 1994,” notes Time magazine.

Bezos has been described as a libertarian; but the Post was known as a liberal Democrat newspaper under its previous owners, the Grahams.

It will be interesting to see if he cuts this union down to size. The survival of the paper, with declining revenue and readers, may depend on it.

As the “populism” conference indicates, the progressives—once called liberals—are now calling themselves something else, in order to fool the electorate.

Don’t look for the media to blow the whistle on themselves.

Whatever they call themselves, they are in control of much of the news and editorial content of major news media organizations.

We look forward to the Post, under its new owner, telling the truth about how the CWA functions as a major component of the progressive movement, and how liberal bias is killing the appeal of the so-called mainstream media.

In addition to the Post, the Washington-Baltimore Newspaper Guild represents employees at such news organizations as The Baltimore Sun and Bloomberg-BNA. Not surprisingly, CWA says thousands of its members also work for public broadcasting entities.

A partisan political operative who serves as a member of the Democratic National Committee and endorsed Obama in 2008, Cohen is a regular guest on the MSNBC cable channel.

Cohen’s tone last week was desperate, as the “progressives,” or “populists,” apparently understand that their President’s popularity is declining, and that their base is becoming increasingly demoralized and less likely to turn out to vote in November’s elections.

One member of the audience openly griped that she was being forced to liquidate her retirement fund in order to pay for her Obamacare plan.

The CWA’s “Education Department” has published a 38-page document entitled “Building a Movement for Economic Justice & Democracy,” which describes in detail how various components of the progressive movement are said to make up more than 71 million people, enough to create a working majority of the voting population and guarantee victory in national elections.

This might be news to the Republicans who think they will retain the House and take the Senate in this year’s national elections.

Holding up a copy of his “Building a Movement” booklet, Cohen told the “populism” conference that the political left needs to push a “common narrative” and “common collective action.” It is a message of “economic justice,” he said.

Soros-funded Liberals Abandon Ukraine To Putin

George Soros has been blamed by the pro-Russia crowd for sparking the anti-communist revolution in Ukraine. That was never the case, since Soros funded a small and largely ineffective non-governmental organization in Ukraine, the Renaissance Foundation. Now, a major Soros-funded group has come out with its prescription for resolving the crisis—accepting Russia’s demand that the country stay out of NATO.

Soros, the political left’s leading “dark money” donor, has shown his true colors.

NATO is hardly the anti-communist alliance it once was, but it still remains the largest pro-American group of nations on earth. That’s why the Russians hate it so much.

Ahead of the scheduled elections on May 25, the International Crisis Group (ICG) has just released a report saying Ukrainian leaders should “declare that they do not desire NATO membership.” The ICG receives a significant amount of funding from Soros’ Open Society Institute, and Soros sits on its board.

This follows former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger’s statements on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” show on May 11, during which he argued that Putin should be accommodated in his drive to take over Ukraine. Kissinger said the West should agree to keep Ukraine out of NATO. Kissinger, whose firm does business in Russia, says Ukraine “will be free to participate in European economic relationships, but not join NATO.”

The global elites have clearly decided that Ukraine must be sacrificed in the name of protecting the big businesses investing in Putin’s Russia.

Not surprisingly, the ICG/Kissinger position is essentially the same as the one held by Russia. The Moscow-funded propaganda channel RT features Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov as saying, “The seeds for the current crisis were sown in 2008 in April during the NATO summit in Bucharest, when NATO leaders stated in a declaration that Georgia and Ukraine would be in NATO.”

But the “seeds” never sprouted, and Putin invaded Ukraine anyway.

It was in 2008 that Russia invaded Georgia, taking over two regions, South Ossetia and Abkhazia. NATO’s April 2008 Bucharest Summit had declared, “We agreed today that these countries [Georgia and Ukraine] will become members of NATO.”

Today, however, Georgia still remains an “aspirant” for NATO membership. While Ukraine was also a candidate to join NATO, this never took place, either, with the blame falling on both the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations.

Republicans like to forget that Bush was fooled by Putin, saying about the Russian leader in 2001, “I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straight forward and trustworthy and we had a very good dialog. I was able to get a sense of his soul.”

Bush thought Putin would be an ally of the U.S. after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Based on what Soros, Kissinger, and the others are saying, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and takeover of Crimea, and control over the Black Sea and its strategic waterways, will be left in place. The pro-Russian website Global Research notes, “the union of Crimea with Russia redefines the geopolitical chessboard in the Black Sea Basin.”

See Who Is Actually The Most Powerful Person In DC. (Hint: It’s Not Obama, Pelosi, Or Reid)

The most powerful man in Washington today is not President Obama.  Nor is it Sen. Harry Reid. It is a California billionaire named Tom Steyer, whose promise to spend $50 million and raise another $50 million to help the Democrats maintain control of the U.S. Senate has given him veto power over one of the most critical projects in America — the Keystone Pipeline.

As America struggles to get back on its feet economically, the Keystone Pipeline is an opportunity to put tens of thousands of blue-collar workers back on the job.  Many unions who have held hands with the environmentalists (for hopes of unionizing green energy jobs that never materialized) are pleading to the White House to allow the project to move forward, but to no avail.  Mr. Steyer has what these workers do not — a billion dollars in his checkbook and the willingness to spend it on politics.

With a critical deadline looming for the president to approve the project, Mr. Steyer’s political advisor Chris Lehane issued a threat.  If the president approves the pipeline, Mr. Steyer will not be writing any checks.  It was extortion, pure and simple — and it worked. The project was delayed again a few days later, and Rolling Stone reports that the president will drive the final nail in the Keystone coffin shortly after the November elections.

Senator Everett McKinley once quipped, “A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you’re talking real money.”  That’s why Steyer is not working alone in the effort to write big checks for the Democrats.  He is part of the Democracy Alliance, a shadowy organization founded with the help of George Soros, that gathers millionaires and billionaires together to pool their resources to push the country left.

The Democracy Alliance just met in Chicago with a key speech coming from New York Mayor Bill de Blazio. Comically, the theme of his speech was “income inequality.”  It hasn’t seemed to dawn on the group of the uber-rich that the policies they are promoting are causing income inequality.

Opposing Keystone will kill tens of thousands of blue collar jobs.

Pushing Ethanol drives up the price of food for families.

Killing the coal industry and preventing fracking will put tens of thousands on the unemployment lines.

Taxing carbon will destroy the economy, turning the country into an economic basket case.

Those are just some of the issues at stake this November.  Should Steyer and his ilk buy enough Senate races to keep Harry Reid in power, the uber liberal rich will still have their money; but blue collar Americans will suffer to an even greater extent.  There is income inequality in this country; but when you can afford to write $50 million checks to politicians, you might be able to talk about it. Still, you can’t admit you are causing it.

A Tale Of Two Democratic Donors

To the casual observer, it appears that Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling will be destroyed by the media because he is a bigot, a racist, and a despicable person. He is, of course, all of these things; but that’s not why he will be destroyed by the media. Consider the contrast between him and George Soros.

Soros has been convicted of a serious crime he committed in France and cannot set foot in Europe without facing extradition to Paris for immediate imprisonment.

Up to now, the media has covered for both of these men, primarily because they are Democrat donors. Although no amount of Democrat donations should be enough to keep a convicted felon wanted by an ally from being sent back, George Soros has no worries about being shipped back to France to start his prison stretch. He is a big Democrat donor.

Donald Sterling is a moron who has shown himself to be an enemy of minority people because of their race, but he has not been convicted of a crime. Nevertheless, he has been hounded out of the NBA – as he should be- by the same liberal media that never mentions Soros’ criminal record. He is a small time Democrat donor. That is the essential difference between these two examples of Democrat manhood.

The Sterling “gotcha” tape that is circulating through the media may actually be a fake. Listening to it puts to mind the dialogue of a daytime soap opera. It is stilted and virtually devoid of the genuine emotion that should accompany an “argument” between two lovers who are breaking up.  That is now beside the point.

The tape reveals that Sterling has a problem with his girlfriend bringing Magic Johnson – who is not only black but the AIDS-infected father of a gay son – to Clippers games. To be sure, this is an ugly thing. Johnson is a totally innocent person in this matter. His only “crime” in Sterling’s eyes is being black. This latest incident and Sterling’s track record as a bigoted landlord and bigoted team owner will be front page news for a while.

It is a good thing Democrat donor Sterling is as cheap as he is a creep because if he was a heavy donor like George Soros, the media would find a way to protect him.
