  • Here’s Who’s Financing Push To Bring Syrian Refugees Into USA

    A new organization has 'come to light' called the 'National Immigration Forum Action Fund' and it's pretending to be an organization by conservatives. The reality is, as Breitbart has discovered, that the organization is nothing but another left wing organization backed by billionaire America-hater George Soros. The same man who has spent billions pushing far left wing ideology and programs onto Americans for years. A group masquerading as conservative but backed by left-wing foundations including George Soros' Foundation to Promote Open Society (FPOS) has launched an online advertising campaign in defense of bringing Syrian refugees to the United States. The...

    Billionaire investor George Soros has confirmed he wants to bring down Europe's borders, following the accusation made last week by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban. Last week, Mr Orban accused Mr Soros – who was born in Hungary – of deliberately encouraging the migrant crisis. "This invasion is driven, on the one hand, by people smugglers, and on the other by those (human rights) activists who support everything that weakens the nation-state," Mr Orban said. "This Western mindset and this activist network is perhaps best represented by George Soros." Mr Soros has now issued an email statement to Bloomberg Business,...

    The radical billionaire denounces his native Hungary for protecting its borders and culture The preeminent funder of border-busting campaigns in the U.S. and overseas now openly admits his efforts in Europe are aimed at destroying national borders on that continent. The unusually frank statement from frequent coup kingpin George Soros comes after Hungary’s prime minister accused him of helping to orchestrate the ongoing invasion of the landlocked nation and the rest of Europe by illegal aliens. Soros is arguably the biggest mass migration-promoting coyote on the planet. He is also an admitted Nazi collaborator, described by David Horowitz as a...

    American Thinker ^ | November 1, 2015 | Carol Brown
    George Soros has all sorts of ideas -- dictates, really -- for how Europe must sign up for its demise by importing hordes of Muslims. Soros outlines a six-point plan for civilizational demise in Project-Syndicate, as summarized below, with a bit of commentary in parentheses. The EU must accept a million "asylum-seekers" every year for the foreseeable future. And the EU must pay 15,000 Euros (about $17,000) per invader for at least the first couple of years after they arrive. George strongly urges Europe to make sure these "asylum seekers" get to settle in whichever country and whichever region of...

George Soros has and is evidently concerned enough about the outcome of a District Attorney's race in Caddo Parish to give $256,000 to a PAC in order to effect the outcome of this local election. The question for all of us across the nation is, why? I offer to you the same possibility that I shared at a press conference in my hometown of Shreveport.

After Ryan, those members have no second choice or even a second tier of potential speakers, said Sarah Chamberlain, chief operating and financial officer for the Republican Main Street Partnership, a group that backs mainstream Republicans and plans to spend millions helping them protect their House seats in 2016.

Charles and David Koch are investing hundreds of millions of dollars to take over the GOP and push America towards libertarianism. Donald Trump joined the Republican Party to run for President and push the country in the opposite direction, toward populist nationalism. Tragically, the Koch brothers mistakes are steadily handing victory to the Donald. Many...

    Executive Summary The Iranian nuclear deal is a full capitulation to Irans terrorist mastermind Mullahs, and the latest in a series of betrayals of the American people and allies by the Obama administration. At the highest level of the administration, Barack Obamas Senior Advisor, the Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett, prioritized rapprochement with the terror state. Throughout the process and negotiations, she had the backing of billionaire investor (and Obama-backer) George Soros, and his multi-headed network of tax-exempt foundations. Their efforts were driven by deep-rooted anti-Semitism and personal greed. Meanwhile, since the mid-1990s, a small but very connected Iranian lobby (funded, in...

A slender woman from the Sahel al-Ghab region in northwestern Syria, where fighting between rebels and government forces has raged in recent weeks, is among the first of several waves of exhausted refugees to reach Guvecci on this September night.

In the far eastern Russian city of Vladivostok, Putin told the media that it was an absolutely expected crisis.

    George Soros has a sense of humor.

Another installed Soros puppet is Barack “Green Energy” Obama. Obama vowed to get rid of the coal companies, and he has most of them in financial triage. Their stocks are at all time lows, and many are near financial disaster. This means Soros has the coal companies right where he wants them.As the saying goes, “Buy low, sell high,” and that’s what...

    Just a little more about the call for a Constitutional Convention, or a Convention of States, as it is now being called. They just gave it a new name to make you think it is an exercise by the various states. It isnt. And here is why. The authorization for calling a convention, or meeting for the purpose of changing the Constitution of the United States is found in Article V. It is very short. Only one paragraph. In fact, it is only one sentence! Here it is, in its entirety. Article V The Congress, whenever two thirds of both...

    Its been over seven years since the Supreme Court, in a 63 decision that was written by liberal favorite John Paul Stevens, declared that voter-ID laws dont constitute an undue burden on people attempting to vote. But that hasnt stopped liberals from fighting in legislatures and courts against those laws and other efforts to promote voter integrity. The lawsuits are often brought by Marc Elias, who doubles as the attorney for Hillary Clintons campaign. And their efforts have paid off: Only about 18 states currently require a photo ID to vote. Last month, the New York Times reported that...

SNIP Melania Trump attended Trumps campaign announcement at Trump Tower in Manhattan this month, although she stayed in the background and didnt speak.

    GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump says he was too critical of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush during his formal campaign launch earlier this week. Trump says he now regrets swinging so hard at Bush, a 2016 White House rival, during his own campaign kickoff Tuesday from New York Citys Trump Tower. I actually saw myself a couple of days ago and I said, thats, thats too rough, Trump told host Jake Tapper in an interview airing Sunday on CNNs State of the Union." I really think hes a nice man, I think hes a wonderful man, he said. I...

    Republican candidate Donald Trump says he "felt bad" after being "too rough" on Jeb Bush in his campaign announcement this week. "I think he's a nice person. I actually felt bad because I hit him very hard one day like two days ago, three days ago, and I said, why am I hitting him so hard?" Trump told CNN's Jake Tapper in an interview set to air Sunday during "State of the Union." Trump grilled many of his Republican competitors this week in his announcement speech, dropping the politeness and subtler digs most other politicians stick to and he delivered...

    Donald Trump may be the man America needs. Having been through four bankruptcies, the ridiculous buffoon with the worst taste since Caligula is uniquely positioned to lead the most indebted organization in the history of the human race.The Trump conglomerate is the Argentina of limited-liability companies,having been in bankruptcy as recently as 2009. To be sure,a lot of companies went bankrupt around then. The Trump gang went bankrupt in 2004,too,and in 2001. Before that, Trump was in bankruptcy court back in 1991 when his Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic Citythe nations first casino-cum-strip-club, an aesthetic crime against humanity that is...

    You may not believe this, but Donald Trump may have started his run as president with highly dubious claim. After bounding on stage at his headquarters, Trump Tower, the bombastic billionaire looked up at the crowd that surrounded him in awe. Whoa, Trump said. That is some group of people. Thousands. Theres been no crowd like this. However, we were there, and it seemed like there were no more than a few hundred supporters lined up to watch Trump speak. Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks told Business Insider the campaign did not have an "official tally." However, she said it would...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 06/03/2015 | Chuck Ross
    While it has been an open secret for several years that Donald Trump was once a heavy Democratic donor, a deeper analysis of campaign records shows that the real estate billionaire’s contributions skewed even further left during the 2006 mid-term election, the crucial contest that put Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi in power and arguably helped pave the way for Barack Obama’s political agenda.Between 1989 and 2010, The Donald gave $314,300 to Democratic groups and candidates and $290,600 to Republicans, according to a Daily Caller analysis of records maintained by the Center for Responsive Politics.But Trump’s donation gap was even...

    RUSH: Well, well, well, well, Snerdley and I just spent the last half hour sitting here watching Donald Trump's announcement that he's going to run for president, and we were laughing ourselves silly. I mean, it was a howl session. But, at the same time, there's no doubt in my mind -- I'll tell you what this is shaping up to be. For those of you who have the long-term memory and in this for the long game, think Perot. Think Ross Perot. Remember the reaction people had to Ross Perot. And I'm not comparing Trump's speech. Perot got going...
