    The progressive billionaire speculator George Soros has said he will ‘fight back’ against the “dominant ideology” of nationalism, whilst admitting that favoured globalist project the European Union is “on the verge of a breakdown”. Wistfully writing that Soros’s Open Society Foundations (OSF) once ‘epitomised the optimism about the spread of Western-style democracy’ after the fall of the Soviet Union, the Financial Times described the scrutiny the global progressive body is experiencing amidst a wave of patriotism and populism and the ‘wilting’ attraction of the leftist agenda. Soros, alluding to the collapse of the USSR, told the left-liberal newspaper: “It’s déjŕ...

    George Soros, the billionaire open borders campaigner, has launched a “media blitz” against Hungary’s government, which has been conducting a national consultation on the financier’s plan for the migrant crisis. Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy Dr. Zoltán Kovács described how, “In an extensive media campaign, George Soros himself joined the debate on the future of Europe’s migration issues with an international and Hungarian media blitz” in an About Hungary blog entry. In a video message aired by RTL Klub, Hungary’s biggest television network, Soros claimed he was “really worried” about his former homeland. Csaba Csontos, a spokesman for the...

    Still smarting from Hillary Clinton's unexpected election loss in 2016, the Soros crew at the Open Foundation Society has got to work looking for reasons to hammer it down and ensure it never happens again. A new study of 450 working class whites from five cities has come out, with the aim of finding out how these recalcitrants and deplorables can team up with other ethnic groups to elect Democrats. Oh that's not how they put it, but it seems to be what it is. According to the Daily Caller, which spotted the study: While the study’s primary stated goal...

    A recently-released research study sheds light on the values of white working-class voters in the United States and the reasons these voters strongly supported Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. Three researchers from three different universities authored the study, titled “White Working-Class Views on Belonging, Change, Identity and Immigration.” Open Society Foundations, a network of political organizations controlled by left-wing billionaire George Soros, funded the study. The trio of researchers conducted the study by visiting four places between August 2016 and March 2017: Birmingham, Alabama; Dayton, Ohio; Tacoma, Washington; Phoenix, Arizona; and — for some reason — the New...

  • Comey acted on Russian intel known to be fake: report

    05/26/2017 11:08:30 AM PDT · by ColdOne · 66 replies ^ | 5/26/17 | Julia Manchester
    Former FBI Director James Comey acted on key information created by Russian intelligence in the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails that he knew to be fake, CNN reported Friday. Unidentified officials told CNN that Comey feared that if the information became public it would undermine the investigation as well as the Justice Department itself. The false information reportedly spurred the then-FBI chief to publicly declare last summer that the investigation into Clinton’s emails was over. Meanwhile, Comey also said that Clinton had been “extremely careless” in her handling of classified information.

    In the midst of the 2016 presidential primary season, the FBI received a purported Russian intelligence document describing a tacit understanding between the campaign of Hillary Clinton and the Justice Department over the inquiry into whether she intentionally revealed classified information through her use of a private email server. The Russian document mentioned a supposed email describing how then-Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch had privately assured someone in the Clinton campaign that the email investigation would not push too deeply into the matter

    A simple news segment about the media coverage of Syria spun wildly out of control during Sunday’s Reliable Sources on CNN. It started with Foreign Correspondent Lara Setrakian noting how little coverage the Syrian civil war received in the early years. But it ending with Jeremy Scahill, co-founder of The Intercept, going off the rails and declaring that “We need to understand the historical context of how a butcher like Assad actually has more in common with someone like Dick Cheney than he does with the average Syrian…” Scahill’s inane tirade derailed the whole segment from the moment he opened...

    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...

    A paper leaked from the Open Society Foundation claims that the European migrant crisis is an opportunity for the foundation to reform migration laws and raise more money from donors. A leaked paper entitled “Migration Governance and Enforcement Portfolio Review,” authored by Open Society employees Anna Crowley and Kate Rosin shows that the foundation sees great opportunity in the European migrant crisis to raise money and push their pro-migrant agenda. The document is one of the most recently created of the leaks, having been written in May of this year and sheds light as to how the organization, which has...

    An organization that played a key role in the White House’s effort to mislead the public and Congress about last summer’s nuclear agreement with Iran requested $750,000 for this campaign from a foundation backed by liberal billionaire George Soros, according to funding documents leaked to the public. The Ploughshares Fund, a liberal organization cited by top White House officials as a chief architect of the Obama administration’s campaign to push the Iran deal, requested the cash from Soros’s Open Society Foundations so that it could pay off “experts and validators” of the administration’s diplomacy with Iran, according to a funding...
