George Soros, Charles Koch team up to form antiwar think tank
Christian Post ^ | 07/01/2019 | Michael Gryboski

Liberal billionaire businessman George Soros and libertarian billionaire businessmen Charles Koch have teamed up to form a nonprofit centered on advancing pacifist foreign policy.

Known as The Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, the new organization was named after former president John Quincy Adams, who championed isolationism, according to a Boston Globe story published Sunday.

According to its website, the Quincy Institute says that it seeks “a new foreign policy centered on diplomatic engagement and military restraint.”

“Political leaders have increasingly deployed the military in a costly, counterproductive, and indiscriminate manner, normalizing war and treating armed dominance as an end in itself,” stated the Institute.

“The current moment presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to bring together like-minded progressives and conservatives and set U.S. foreign policy on a sensible and humane footing. Our country’s current circumstances demand it.”

As of Monday, the Institute was still in its infancy when it came to social media outreach. The Facebook page’s earliest post was from last Thursday. While its Twitter account is listed as beginning in March, the first post was on Sunday.

The partnership is significant as both Soros and Koch are the subject of much partisan hatred in American politics, with both usually being associated with political conspiracy theories.

In response to the news, Nick Gillespie of the libertarian-leaning publication Reason celebrated the creation of the Institute as “a welcome sign that worn-out, old political coalitions are making way for new alliances.”

“The Quincy Institute, drawing financial and ideological support from parts of the political spectrum that aren't supposed to row in the same direction, is the latest sign that a 21st-century politics, one rooted in the way we live now and committed to finding answers to our present and future predicaments, is at long last emerging,” wrote Gillespie.

Let’s see, George Soros the Nazi is a pacifist? Somehow I’m having trouble with that image, given his other “investments”...

there’s a difference between
1.avoiding “bad” wars and
2. refusing to defend USA or our allies or interests

anything SorozNazi is behind....will be Number 2.

(and I sure don’t trust the Koch brothers anymore, either!)

So Koch is teaming up with Soros. Somehow I am not surprised.

Sometimes it is necessary to DESTROY anti-truth, anti-freedom, anti-individual, anti-life individuals and collectives.

Been saying it for years, the Kochs are just as bad as Soros.

Generally, in politics, Lobbying groups and ‘think-tank’ organizations are named the opposite of what they actually want.

I daresay that this outfit is not anti-war, but ‘Make America Weak’ globalists. President Trump is the most anti-war President we have had in decades, and yet Soros and Koch both hate him and work to undermine him, and oppose the whole MAGA concept.

I always suspected the Koch were village idiots.
They really don’t have any idea what is going on in the world.
