  • Why Did A Capitalist Like Soros Bankroll A Communist Like Van Jones? (remember in November thread)

    09/21/2010 3:08:02 AM PDT · by Liz · 20 replies ^ | September 15, 2009 | Cliff Kincaid
    EXCERPT When the list of donors to the Van Jones “Green for All” organization is examined, one name stands out — the Open Society Institute of billionaire George Soros. The Green for All 2008 annual report is also notable for the pictures of the powerful people who associated with Jones, a known communist. They include House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former Vice President Al Gore. While the Open Society Institute was supporting Green for All in 2008, when Jones was running it, the Soros-funded organization was also financially underwriting the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights when Jones was...
  • A Beck inspired 'blackboard' on left wing funding from foundations to public media and more

    After creating a huge post regarding all the different ways that the left shuffles funding around towards NPR, I realized it was probably a bit too long and I thought there might be a better way. So here is a visual which should help make it easier:

    NEW YORK (AP) - The American Civil Liberties Union has lost a quarter of its yearly donations after a major donor cut off $19 million in annual donations because of economic difficulties. David Gelbaum, a wealthy California conservationist, said he was indefinitely stopping the donations that had made him the New York-based group's largest anonymous donor

    A rising chorus of discontent – more a citizens uprising – shows Middle America’s deep suspicion of President Obama’s health care reform proposal. Average citizens have voiced their disapproval at townhall meetings hosted by Sen. Arlen Specter and HHS Director Kathleen Sebelius, Rep. Lloyd Doggett, Rep. Tim Bishop, and staffers of Sen. Claire McCaskill. In a burst of passion-envy, Chris Matthews asked on Monday night’s Hardball, “Where the Hell are the people who want health care, the poor people out there…the union people? Where are they? I haven’t seen one placard, let alone one protest demonstration, for health care.” In...

    Arianna Huffington (L) with Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans (R) Internet gossip Arianna Huffington announced that her left-wing gossip website, the Huffington Post, is launching the Huffington Post Investigative Fund. She said on her site that This nonprofit Fund will produce a wide-range of investigative journalism created by both staff reporters and freelance writers.As the newspaper industry continues to contract, one of the most commonly voiced fears is that serious investigative journalism will be among the victims of the scaleback. And, indeed, many newspapers are drastically reducing their investigative teams. Yet, given the multiple crises we are living through, investigative journalism...
  • The Cloward-Piven Strategy to implement socialist revolution

    Strategy for forcing political change through orchestrated crisis First proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, the “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse. Inspired by the August 1965 riots in the black district of Watts in Los Angeles (which erupted after police had used batons to subdue a black man suspected of drunk driving), Cloward and Piven published an article titled "The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End...

    Since 1996, George Soros’s Open Society Institute has been funding the production of “social justice” documentaries to win converts to the billionaire’s brand of liberalism. In 2001, Soros joined forces with actor-director Robert Redford and let Redford’s Sundance Institute take over his Soros Documentary Fund. What’s the outcome of this made-in-Hollywood merger?

    Candidate's Reform Institute also accepted funds from Teresa Kerry As Sen. John McCain assumes the GOP front-runner mantle, his long-standing, but little-noticed association with left-wing donors such as George Soros and Teresa Heinz Kerry is receiving new attention among his Republican critics. In 2001, McCain founded the Alexandria, Va.-based Reform Institute as a vehicle to receive funding from George Soros' Open Society Institute and Teresa Heinz Kerry's Tides Foundation and several other prominent non-profit organizations. McCain used the institute to promote his political agenda and provide compensation to key campaign operatives between elections. In 2006, the Arizona senator was forced...

    Parents believe they have the right to decide what medical treatments are best for their children. But state lawmakers think otherwise because of a disease that has become both a feminist and a public health cause celebre. Across America lawmakers want to compel young girls to be inoculated against human papillomavirus (HPV) years before most become sexually active because there is a chance it can cause cervical cancer. Is replacing parental judgment with mandates by lawmakers and courts good for society?...... Legislators in at least 41 states and the District of Columbia have introduced legislation to require, fund or educate...

    by Richard Lawrence Poe Monday, October 22, 2007 Permanent LinkMore Columns CALL IT Bloggergate — the subversion of the blogosphere by Democrat money. Six years ago, most bloggers leaned right-of-center politically. Then something happened. The blogosphere made a sudden, screeching, 180-degree swerve to the left. What caused this upheaval? For years, we could only speculate. Now, at last, we have caught a glimmer of the truth. It is not a pretty picture. “We are . . . putting together a network in the blogosphere,” Senator Hillary Clinton announced on August 4, 2007 at the YearlyKos Convention, a gathering of...

    MOST HILLARY WATCHERS have had a chance by now to view the controversial YouTube video in which the junior senator from New York brags that she has personally helped flood the Internet with a "network" of leftwing blogs. Her boast raises troubling questions. On a practical level, just how exactly does a U.S. Senator go about exerting her power to stack the blogosphere in her favor? One obvious method is to buy favorable coverage. Hillary's boast carries a strong implication that she has subsidized bloggers. Regular readers of will be reminded of Bloggergate -- a little-known, but ever-burgeoning, scandal...

    One of the marks of traumatic stress is a constant feeling of guilt. Some of the rescue workers at Ground Zero on 9/11 still suffer from survivor guilt today. They constantly wonder, "Why did those people die? Why not me?" Yet guilt is what makes civilized society possible; it's what keeps us from unleashing our most selfish impulses on each other. Not everybody is capable of feeling guilt. Psychopaths do not experience it. That is a defining feature of the disorder. That is why psychopaths can do things that would haunt most of us forever. Think of O.J. Simpson, or...

    Democracy: George Soros is known for funding groups such as that seek to manipulate public opinion. So why is the billionaire's backing of what he believes in problematic? In a word: transparency. How many people, for instance, know that James Hansen, a man billed as a lonely "NASA whistleblower" standing up to the mighty U.S. government, was really funded by Soros' Open Society Institute , which gave him "legal and media advice"? That's right, Hansen was packaged for the media by Soros' flagship "philanthropy," by as much as $720,000, most likely under the OSI's "politicization of science" program. That...

    On the endless go-rounds about illegal immigration I wrote a while back: What if it’s all an illusion, just like the Cinco de Mayo “nationwide protests” by Hispanics was an ‘06 (election year) illusion that had nothing behind it in ‘07 (no elections). What if everyone is being played a little bit, here, being prompted to emotional reactionaryism as a means of reaching into and infecting those Americans of good-will who until the “flashpoint” and the sudden hue-and-cry couldn’t be moved to hate? Moved to grousing, yes, but never before moved to real, unadulterated hate? Illusionists are clever sorts -...

    The Left: The smear ad published against Gen. Petraeus has drawn attention to its sponsor, But the fingerprints of the group's chief financial backer, George Soros, were all over it. Who is this man and what is he up to? To read Soros' own spun story, he's a Jewish survivor of Nazi-occupied Hungary who pulled himself up by his bootstraps, studied economics in England, became a U.S. citizen in 1961 and made a multibillion-dollar fortune as a financier who pioneered hedge funds. Over the years, Soros has written books giving his philosophical take on global affairs and acquired a...

    Iran has released an Iranian-American academic from prison but judiciary officials said he was not free to leave the country, the official IRNA news agency reported on Thursday. Kian Tajbakhsh, a consultant with George Soros's New York-based Open Society Institute, was detained in May on spying charges while visiting Iran. "Tajbakhsh was released on Wednesday night on around $100,000 bail, but he cannot leave the country," a judiciary spokesman said. "The judge of his case should issue special permission to lift the ban on his departure." excerpt

    Its sinister maneuvers in the Foley scandal have put George Soros' Shadow Party on a collision course with the FBI. THE SCANDAL over Congressman Mark Foley’s sexual misconduct has generated some unexpected blowback.  It has pitted George Soros’ Shadow Party against the FBI. The Soros-funded group CREW has effectively declared war on America’s top federal law enforcement agency. CREW has called on the Justice Department to investigate the FBI.  In an October 5 statement, it accused the Bureau of having “fabricated and disseminated” falsehoods about CREW, as part of an FBI “cover-up” of the Foley scandal.
