The reporter exposed as having filed a story with the Democratic National Committee (DNC) before publication in Politico is out with a puff-piece about Democratic Party money bags George Soros.
The main force behind the agenda to flood the country with high-potency mind-altering marijuana through legalization campaigns, Soros also underwrites the “Big Death lobby” to pull the plug on sick people through “palliative care” schemes. Yet, Soros is described in the Kenneth P. Vogel story in Politico as dedicated to human rights, democracy, and “healthcare and education” on a global basis.
Soros has also financed various Marxist groups, such as Critical Resistance, a group founded by communist Angela Davis and dedicated to abolishing prisons.
This has got to be the biggest whitewash of Soros ever to appear in print. Soros, an atheist, is a major funder of the Democratic Party, as Vogel says, but he neglects to mention that much of Soros’s wealth has been put into causes such as abortion rights, gay rights, drug legalization, voting rights for felons, euthanasia and rights for immigrants and prostitutes.
It’s an agenda that dovetails nicely with Cultural Marxism.
Rachel Ehrenfeld of the American Center for Democracy points out, “Pretending to support an ‘open society,’ Soros uses his philanthropy to ‘change’ or more accurately deconstruct the moral values and attitudes of the Western world, and particularly of the American people.” This agenda makes them susceptible to a takeover from within by the socialists in the Democratic Party.
It’s the emerging “Big Marijuana” industry where Soros and his millions have really made a difference. Ehrenfeld comments that “…by working diligently to legalize drugs, Soros advances the greatest slavery ever—drug addiction. This sits well with his rejection of the notion of ordered liberty, in favor of a progressive ideology of rights and entitlements.”
Interestingly, his fortune has skyrocketed from about $9 billion before President Obama took office to over $24 billion today. It’s a form of crony capitalism designed to usher in a socialist state.
Vogel claims Soros amassed his fortune “through risky currency trades,” a sanitized version of what he actually did to make his money. Convicted of insider trading in France, another fact ignored by Vogel, Soros is a financial speculator and hedge-fund operator who manipulates the currencies of the nations of the world in order to make himself rich. He capitalizes on global instability and exploits human suffering for financial gain.
Vogel’s signature left-wing bias can be found throughout the piece, such as his statement that Soros has committed $5 million to a non-profit “devoted to fighting conservative efforts to restrict voting…” Of course, conservatives are trying to “restrict voting” to those who can prove they are American citizens.
Vogel says that Soros “warned voters” against voting for Donald Trump and Ted Cruz because he didn’t think these candidates understood how “to effectively fight terrorism.”
Soros’s idea of fighting terrorism was to finance the legal defense of Marxist National Lawyers Guild attorney Lynne Stewart, who was prosecuted and sentenced to 10 years in prison for violating the law against supporting terrorism. She had provided illegal support to her client, the “Blind Sheik” Omar Abdel-Rahman, mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
The Obama administration freed Stewart from prison on medical grounds.
One thing Vogel gets right is the personal relationship Soros has with Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.
He cites the memo from Neera Tanden, the head of the Soros-funded Center for American Progress, about their close relationship. “I sat next to George Soros at dinner during the Democracy Alliance and after the topics of Europe and China, he started discussing President Obama,” Tanden says to Hillary. “I told him I worked for you in the primaries and he said he’s been impressed that he can always call/meet with you on an issue of policy and said he hasn’t met with the President ever (though I thought he had). He then said he regretted his decision in the primary—he likes to admit mistakes when he makes them and that was one of them. He then extolled his work with you from your time as First Lady on. You probably have heard this all before but on the off chance you haven’t, I thought I should let you know.”
According to this memo, Soros apparently believes Mrs. Clinton is more radical than Obama and would implement more of the billionaire’s objectives as president.
The Democracy Alliance is a secretive “dark money” group, the kind that progressives usually complain about when they operate on the conservative side.
Vogel suggests that Soros has recently been reluctant to get involved politically, but in fact he emerged as a big Wall Street backer of Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). Vogel could easily determine the truth of this statement by conducting a search of Politico’s own website and bringing up a story about a “who’s who of New York’s liberal finance scene” backing Warren. The list included Soros.
Warren, of course, postures as an enemy of Wall Street, in much the same way that she claimed to have Indian heritage to get a university teaching job.
