GEORGE SOROS' INFILTRATION OF CPAC
Congressman Mark E. Souder (IN-03) Congressional Record | 2-8-2006 | Congressman Mark E. Souder (IN-03)

GEORGE SOROS’ INFILTRATION OF CPAC

STATEMENT FOR THE CONGRESSIONAL RECORD CONGRESSMAN MARK E. SOUDER (IN-03) FEBRUARY 8, 2006

Mr. Speaker,

George Soros, the radical liberal financier who dedicated himself to defeating President George W. Bush in the last election, has taken a lesson from Jack Abramoff.

As much of Abramoff’s pernicious lobbying technique has come to light, we’ve seen how he was adept at manipulating certain conservative organizations to pursue a decidedly anti-conservative agenda, namely the promotion of gambling. By working hand in hand with the Traditional Values Coalition (TVC), for example, he was able in 2000 to undermine conservatives’ best effort to outlaw on-line gambling. Proxy organizations played a fundamental role in Abramoff’s strategy.

Since 1974, the American Conservative Union has held the Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, which is billed as a three-day meeting for thousands of conservative activists and leaders to discuss current issues and policies and set the agenda for the future. I myself have addressed the conference in the past.

One can imagine a conservative’s surprise to read on the CPAC 2006 agenda that a representative of the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) is slated to moderate-yes, moderate-a panel Friday discussing drug policy. For those who are unacquainted with it, the pro-marijuana MPP has been funded by Soros in the past. Also represented on the panel is the Drug Policy Alliance, which is Soros’ principal pro-drug arm. Incidentally, the moderator himself is a convicted drug dealer.

What on earth were the CPAC organizers thinking? Why would the American Conservative Union allow extremist liberals like George Soros and Peter Lewis (who is responsible for most of MPP’s funding) to access a meeting of conservatives? And, in exactly whose estimation would there be balance in a debate moderated by the MPP?

Thanks to Accuracy in Media Report editor Cliff Kincaid, these are just a few of the questions that the CPAC organizers now face. I’d like to submit into the record his article of February 7, 2006, entitled “Soros Infiltrates Conservative Movement.” In exchange for a donation, is this 32-year old conservative conference turning itself into a Soros proxy organization just like Abramoff’s TVC?

Over the last number of months, we’ve been surprised to learn how one such as Abramoff was able to exploit conservatives for his own purposes. Surely in this environment we can’t miss seeing it when it’s happening once again.

Actually, IMO, soros subscribes to an uber UN headed by his cronies(maurice strong, hillary, et al).

But what the hey soros hates GW Bush and is all for drugs and thus Libertarian organizations take his money with no qualms at all.

Personally, I think our drug laws could use some reform. Conservatives should debate this issue. However, the problem with CPAC is that it is allowing Ethan Nadelmann to present himself as a fellow conservative, when in fact he is a leftist and a Soros operative to boot.

I debated Nadelmann at CPAC last year. Here's the transcript. Read Nadelmann's comments carefully, and you will see that he used innuendo to give the impression that he was a conservative addressing fellow conservatives. Such deception reminds me of the old Communist Party front groups.

Mr. Nadelmann's presence was wholly inappropriate in a forum which CPAC touted under the rubric of, "Differences Within the Family," by which they meant, differences within the conservative family.

Nadelmann is not part of the conservative "family," nor is his sponsor George Soros. Therefore he should not be promoted as such.

While I applaud CPAC for inviting debate on drug policy, such debate needs to take place among actual conservatives. Leftists masquerading as conservatives have no place in such a forum.

And I'm SOOOO glad a Soros-front-group is sponsoring it. After all, they only want what's best for America. /s

Want to win the war on drugs? Start executing convicted drug dealers after the second offense and institute televised, mild corporal punishment for those arrested for possession. Problem solved.

It's difficult to tell where the liberal groups end and the "conservative" groups begin.

Moveon.org and Americans for Tax Reform (ATR- Grover Norquist) are working on some of the same agenda. Norquist recently had Soros speak at his conservative Wed. morning meetings, often attended by white house personnel. Norquist is also the WH point man on immigration, and agrees with Soros on that. Don't forget Norquists Islamic Institute and Alliance for Worker Freedom (all in the same offices as ATAR) is available on the group's Web site at http://www.workerfreedom.org/.

many repubs are on the take from soros, the "mainstreet republicans" as theyre called. mccain is one.

sadly-- our able danger hero Curt Weldon also takes money from soros.


but if you look at the 1963 communist goals from the congressional record, one of the objectives is to capture one or both parties.

The "War on Drugs" has been mostly operated like "Border Security." In other words, catchy phrases to scam the "folks" but never intended to be effective.

Our nation's drug problems are now so bad that it infects every small community in every part of this nation.

Drug dealers/importers/mules operate with impunity in most communities with law enforcement's hands tied.

Some of the big fish are never caught and liberal judges give small time dealers a quick slap on the hand, if that.

One has only to have read about a few cases recently in the news about very large drug caches being caught running the border, on ships, on planes or in large trucks moving on the nation's hi way systems.

Finally, all you have to do is to look into the faces of the young addicts to realize that we, as a nation, have left our youngest, most vulnerable innocents, trying to resist being preyed upon. I have as I work with lots of addicts and it's heartbreaking.

This insanity can stop but, and that's a very big but, large number of Americans need to make ending this nightmare of lost generations a real-time priority.

It's difficult to tell who is running the show. That might explian why Weldon won't stand against illegal immigration/Cafta, etc. Sad. And yes, it seems they've captured both parties. I wonder when the party faithfuls will figure that out. Soon I hope.

Although I've been labled a "druggie" over and over here, I'm staunchly anti-drug. I don't hang around with drug users (although I know some who use pot regularly, I don't make a habit of hanging out with them, just as I don't hang out with people who drink). I don't do illegal drugs, and although I have a Rx for narcotic pain killers due to chronic pain, I very rarely take them: Although I take prednisone and lots of ibuprofin.

However, I'm in favor of drug decriminalization, if not legalization. Insanity is sometimes defined as doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results each time. An endless stream of money is spent on both sides of the war on drugs, and the results do not inspire confidence in me.

There's a tremendous profit motive in selling illegal drugs. The greater the risk, the greater the profit. That's why "rum running" was quite a career back in the 1920s, but you don't see too much of it any more. On the other hand, we're starting to see "black market" cigarettes making inroads, and the states are taking notice. They don't like anyone taking "their cut of the action."

That profit also does plenty to corrupt law enforcement and government, as well as convincing some in government to do things which are blatantly wrong, if not downright unconstitutional, or should be. Things like asset forfeiture BEFORE a conviction. No-knock raids. The militarization of police departments. And, as I said, the corruption. Not that long ago, the state of Missouri actually sued the KCMO police department over "drug booty!"

There are an awful lot of people in jail who don't belong there. Often, due to the "get tough on drugs" mindset, it's not that unusual for non-violent drug offenders to wind up in jail longer than violent offenders.

I'm against spending the sort of money we're spending on this war. There are so many better ways it could be spent.

It destroys the social fabric of society and is morally reprehensible - an example of the 'get-rich-quick' scheme that can destroy America if adopted too widely (to paraphrase TR).

Ask the woman whose husband has blown the family paycheck in Vegas.

Ask the families destroyed by above behavior.

Gambling is not mere 'entertainment' - it is the encouragements of the LIE that one can succeed without hard work - to many in our society this is like crack cocaine - once they start they can't stop.

And no, they don't just 'hurt themselves'.

They hurt their families, their friends, and SOCIETY, 'libertarianben'.

As far as drugs go, I have a solution:

1. Mandatory execution of all dealers;

2. Mandatory incarceration for all users.

Oh, yeah. This DOES take some effort of the National Will. The imposition of which is OBTW, a positive factor in our national health.

Fine. Lets go back 100 years. You can still play poker for $$$ with your buddies or in 'underground' establishments.

But the Government is not encouraging casinos, lotteries and the like. Children are not exposed to this pernicious 'get rich quick' mentality.

Dr. James Dobson was a member of a US Gov't Commission to Study Gambling in the 1990s. In 1999 they issued their report. Here is Dobson's newsletter from that time on this topic. You might want to give it a read.
