What do these three things have in common?
The average American does not know the answer. The truth is all three appeared to influence the 2016 Presidential election. The difference, billionaire George Soros, and his Democracy Alliance, founded in 2005 did so openly, while Soviet leader Vladimir Putin’s influence is unproven.
Yet the media is focused on the alleged interference by Russia.
Why the disconnect?
Last month repeat fake news purveyor, The Washington Post, published allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Government officials, aware of the possibility since late summer, failed to act on the information until post election when a patsy for the Democratic Party was required. President Obama and the mainstream media remain focused on sanctioning Russia for this alleged interference.
Meanwhile, all references to actual interference with the election by leftist billionaires remains minimized by mainstream media. Again.
Here are where the true hypocrisies lie.
Firstly, “hacking” is when a system is broken into from an outside source. Whether or not actual hacking took place remains to be seen. Julian Assange asserted what actually happened was a leak. A leak is when an insider, in this case allegedly a DNC staffer angry with the treatment of Democratic Nominee Bernie Sanders, willingly gave secret documents to Assange for publication. These documents revealed ugly truths about the Democratic party and Clinton’s campaign.
Despite the real possibility of an insider leak, sanctions are now in place against Russia.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch . . .
Billionaire George Soros a Hungarian-American businessman active within the Democratic party and founder of Democracy Alliance (DA), has openly used the money to influence multiple elections since the early 2000s. Soros and other multi-millionaires and billionaires developed the DA in an attempt to foster “grassroots” advocacy groups pushing leftist ideals.
Politico describes a group that requires the ultra rich, labor unions and liberal foundation members to contribute a minimum of $200,000 a year for the privilege of making group recommendations, in addition to annual dues of $30,000. Since its inception, the DA has provided over $500 million dollars to a range of groups. Many of these groups have ties to the Clintons.
Politico reports that Soros himself donated $25 million to supporting Clinton and other Democratic candidates and causes in 2016. http://www.politico.com/story/2016/11/democrats-soros-trump-231313
Once Soros’ chosen Presidential candidate lost, Soros’ DA and other involved mega-millionaires held a three-day, closed-door meeting to develop a plan to counter President Trump. The goal is to specifically disrupt President Trump’s first one hundred days while planning for upcoming elections. http://www.politico.com/story/2016/11/democrats-soros-trump-231313
How utterly un-democratic. In Soros’ world, elections are for the ignorant masses. To have real power, one must simply be obscenely rich. Money equals the ability to purchase power and influence.
Interestingly, in August 2016, The Observer questioned Mr. Soros’ attempts to influence the US election. This was months before any US citizen was notified of the possibility of “Russia” influencing our election. http://observer.com/2016/08/dc-leak-exposes-top-clinton-donor-george-soros-manipulating-elections/
Feeling manipulated yet?
Make no mistake, while the media distracts you with Russia, the ultra rich donate millions to political candidates to purchase power.
Donald Trump has vowed to limit some of these activities, which in turn limits the power and influence of Mr. Soros and his leftist cronies. Is there any doubt why billionaires like Mr. Soros are having closed door meetings to maintain what power they have left? The people elected Mr. Trump. If we fail to stay vigilant, unelected billionaires like Mr. Soros will continue to influence our political system. The choice is now yours. Stay vigilant.
