Posted on 01/31/2017 7:13:02 PM PST by lasereye
What would Open Society Foundation (OSF) president and fund manager George Soros want with the small, landlocked nation of Macedonia? As it turns out, plenty. The Daddy Warbucks of progressive causes is working overtime to weaken European borders and facilitate the flow of refugees from the Middle East by sending money to disrupt nations holding both democratic elections and cracking down on illegal immigration.
But he hasn't done it alone. The U.S. State Department has been working right alongside him.
The aid that the U.S. has provided to Macedonia during their long friendship has been channeled through the U.S. Agency of International Development (USAID). While the U.S.' goals for Macedonia include benign statements on investing in democracy, the State Department began favoring partnerships with Soros' long litany of organizations in 2012. These organizations are anything but democratic. Instead, they are pushing progressive, violent, and radical ideals throughout Europe. Soros owns or controls over 60 NGO's in Macedonia -- the same ones that receive grants from the USAID program! Among other efforts, Soros has been funneling USAID money into the Social-Democratic Alliance of Macedonia (SDSM) -- the country's former Communist party.
Yes, U.S. money has been going to support the communists in Macedonia.
Macedonia's prime-minister-elect Nikola Gruevski had harsh words for Soros: "His [Soros'] foundation, in finances and human resources is the most powerful foundation in the world that has political goals After a while, entire institutions, ministries, perhaps governments and their intelligence services are infected with his views, his ideology, his views and goals."
The people of Macedonia are so tired of Soros' 25-year history of meddling in their country that they've banded to form Stop Operation Soros (SOS). At a recent press conference, the SOS co-founder Nikola Srbov stressed, "The Open Society Foundation, operating under the Soros umbrella, used its funding and personnel to support violent processes in Macedonia. It has monopolized the civil society sector, pushing outside any organization which disagrees with the Soros ideology." Srbov specifically called out the USAID program, saying that SDSM has been supported through USAID and the U.S. had been exerting direct political influence in Macedonia. He told the press that now, in the Trump era, Americans need to know the truth.
The same man who helped the terrorist group, the Muslim Brotherhood, in Egypt, funded the violent protests in Ferguson, Mo., and channeled millions into Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton's election campaigns is now trying to crush democracy in the small nation of Macedonia with State Department dollars.
But a Soros-less State Department could be underway. Recently, the State Department was gripped by a mass exodus of top officials. Most notable was the resignation of Patrick Kennedy, the undersecretary for management. While he was a career diplomat, Kennedy was anything but squeaky clean. During the congressional investigation of the bungled Benghazi mission, House GOP investigators faulted him for failing to provide adequate security. Kennedy once again took center stage during the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server when an FBI witness said Kennedy had offered a "quid pro quo" to another FBI official in the attempt to suppress evidence that would undermine Hillary Clinton's claim not to have classified information on her server.
Department spokesperson Mark Toner (a former Obama White House spokesperson) indicated that turnover is the norm when the White House changes hands from one political party to another, and that some of the resignations were expected. But considering Trump's follow-through on the recall of ambassadors and envoys from overseas, it may well be that the Trump administration realizes a housecleaning is necessary. It will also require leadership that is unafraid to take on the imbedded liberal special interests at the State Department.

The roots of Evil are tangled and deep. Can it possibly NOT be too much for one man (Trump)?
Trump needs to turn the faucet off on this wasteful spending by obammy/hildabeast on more “nation building”.
in this case direct funding of communist opposition party I macedonia.
How mucha this crap is going on?
seems like a new scam is uncovered almost everyday.
No wonder the establisment is so anti trump.
No wonder the USA is 20 tril in debt.
Drain the swamp
Where are the Forms 1099 that Soros should have filled out for each rioter he hired?
Macedonia also grows some primo opium poppies. Follow the money.
Satan will call Soros home pretty soon. He’s pure evil. He should have been sent back to Hell long ago.
I'm pleased to see that it appears to be high on President Trump's list of priorities also, though his dance card is full. I can't think of a more crowded nest of "entitled" and hostile opponents now working for his administration. I have high hopes that Soros may eventually be treated, if not officially designated, as undesirable enemy alien. Other than EO, and the Pentagon there may be no other agency where the President enjoys more latitude.
This very night there are hundreds of State functionaries actively working against this President, most of them with real passion or fear. Glad to see the Hungarian, at least, waking up. Macedonia exists as an American buffer between Albania, Serbia, Greece and even Bulgaria. One or two phone calls made by this president or his people could wipe out the use of Macedonia as a safe zone, although its use as a potential safe zone for actual refugees (as opposed to colonists) would have been very useful two summers ago.
I could go on and on, but at least my patience has hope now, where before, for fifty years or more the obvious liberal hostility to the American People deferred to State and USAID has been a long, long dark night.
Satan will recall SorosNazi soon, yes indeed. BUT his evil will CONTINUE....all over the world..because he’s trained his kids to carry it all on
what needs to be done is to see him prosecuted (perhaps in one of the countries that has criminal warrants out for him, or if DJT’s AG will only investigate....maybe here?)
and then.....move all his filthy lucre into a “Soros Victims’ Compensation trust fund”....to help heal some of the wounds he’s inflicted on the world..................(AND this will have the added benefit of preventing his kids from being able to do any more Soroz damage !!)
soroz just returning to Satan in Hell....won’t change a thing by itself
Drain the swamp PING!!

Thanks, lasereye & H/T Tilted Irish Kilt
Thanks for the ping.
Swamp needs draining!
Especially the State Dept; a wretched hive of scum and villainy...
Hopefully the Trump Administration will fire the folks from the State Department working with Soros.
The US State Department has not been on the side of the USA or the West for a long time. Maybe not since the FDR Administration. This may our last chance to fix this.
You are exactly right.
maybe Donald will realize (he probably does, he’s a very bright guy)
that so much of the troubles in USA (and the world)... and so much of the (ludicrous but still troublesome) opposition to his presidency....
derives from SorozNazi and his filthy lucre....
right down to the hired goons in the streets.....
that maybe, just maybe, Donald’s AG will launch a real investigation into this guy and his kids now....and their financial manipulations, etc. Or maybe just honor an extradition request from one of the countries which already has criminal arrest warrants out for him??
we will see.... its definitely possible now that Donald is president instead of the Illegal Islamic Infiltator in Chief that SorozNazi helped groom and finance
I agree. DJT is fully aware of the New world Order and those behind it. He has surrounded himself with very knowledgeable and competent people.
Yes, it would be wonderful if Soros was extradited. Soros is as evil as anyone who ever lived. IMO
He seems to be a domestic enemy, a perennial pain, and we seem to just put up with it. He must be breaking some laws. His goal is the destruction of America and anything to do with Western Civilization.
It's time America goes after Soros. He's done enough damage. He almost got Hillary elected.
When things settle down, can Trump, Sessions and Comey do a serious in depth look at Soros? I’m sick of Soros this, Soros that.
I think you are right that “when things settle down” they will go after him. Hopefully things are already in motion.
It is unacceptable that he continues to do so much damage and gets away with it.
I’d use a SEAL team on his azz. I read somewhere that he has so much security that it would take a SEAL team to take him out.
