Al Gore: Soros should have more influence over American Politics

Al Gore: George Soros Should Have More Influence Over American Politics February 2, 2013 By Daniel Greenfield Apparently controlling the White House and the Foreign Policy of the country via the Soros Money Machine isn’t enough. Not until the entire Senate and Congress bows to the new Emperor of America.

Billionaires influencing American politics is bad. Really bad. It’s a grave threat to Democracy. Unless they’re liberals.

During an appearance with CBS anchor and host Charlie Rose at the 92nd Street Y in New York City on January 29, former Vice President Al Gore said that progressivism cannot compete with “the money situation” that is funding right wing media outlets and messaging firms.

When Rose countered that well-heeled progressives fund liberal causes, Gore cut him off and said that he was making a “false equivalence.” The crowd burst into applause as Gore added that progressive millionaires like George Soros should have more influence in American politics than they presently enjoy.

Rose strikes a small note of honesty, quickly walks it back, while Gore proclaims to audience applause that liberal billionaires should have more influence over American politics.

This is the sad spectacle of the Orwellian left glorying in their own power while pretending that they’re really fighting to restore people power.

There’s nothing that quite says decadent liberalism like the combination of Charlie Rose, the 92nd Street Y and Al Gore. It’s like the elevator music of 90s liberalism. Put all of them together and you get the frank admission from a corrupt Clinton Era pol who almost became president, then invested in the EcoScam and handed over millions of American households to Al Jazeera, that the criminal Nazi collaborating billionaire who funded the left’s takeover of American politics needs to have even more influence.

For the people.

Soros has the White House, much of Congress and apparently the Supreme Court.

How much more does Soros need?

They are always “for the Poor,” but give the money of the common man to their fellow rich Leftists through government largess.

They are always “for the children,” except for those children they insist on killing before birth.

The judgement God will visit upon these liars will be fearsome, for as the Psalm says, God hates liars and those who deceive others.

Maybe if that influence hadn’t been squandered away,after so many failed attempts at backing Turkeys on the left-Soros would have actually been quite influential.

Again you have to back winners and causes that actually succeed to really affect politics.Personally,I expect a lot of Politicians to get burned over that global warming scam and Soros to eventually face charges due to his financial irregularities.

Gore is obviously plugging Soros in hopes of getting in on the Soros action.

Al has already figured in his new $100 mil. Having sold his soul (such that he has) for cash...he needs more cash to get that wonderful feeling back.

A lot like coke, eh, Al.

Big cash makes a new man of you...and the first thing this new man needs is...more cash.

That's Satan's trick, Al. Ill gotten gains cannot satisfy...they only increase the need for more.

The Left needs to take a good long look at Al. This is what lies at the end of their fake, skittles-strewn path.

Say one thing and do another, is the Marxist MO. The real problem is that our media has turned into a thoroughly compromised propaganda machine. The Soros led propaganda machine managed to destroy Bush worldwide, and now has Obama in messiah status all over the world. It’s a global effort, and without truth we’re doomed.

I want to know why anyone would pay Al Gore $50 million for a station that has so few viewers it was kicked off of cable. Is it money laundering? his global warming spokesconman payment? Something’s up with that.

IMHO, the only influence that Soros should have is, none ! And he should have been dead and buried for at least 67 years !

It's all so upside down. We have pseudo-intellectual elitists with money and power enshrouding themselves in a mantle of populism and social justice, while making villains out of normal hard-working people who don't embrace them as royalty. I can think of few high level democrats I would trust to be kind and caring, but the public has been conditioned to think that they are the ones who ‘care’.

I am truly surprised that Soros is still alive. His people have been thrown out of half a dozen countries for trying to subvert their political processes, establishing Soros as the absolute power behind the throne.

His most recent scheme was to propel a Chinese leader to become their General Party Secretary. The Chinese figured it out and the puppet, his wife and family will likely never be seen again.

Soros seriously wanted to control the government of China!

So I am amazed that they haven’t decided that he needs to be retired. You can’t tell me that the Chinese government is unable to swat Tsetse fly like Soros.

"Al Gore nearly became a US President and he’s cheerleading for that communist b*****d Soros."

The Gore family fortune was made through a bag man for the Soviet government named Armand Hammer (whose father Julius Hammer set up front groups for the Soviets before our government recognized them).

I’ve been wondering the same thing. What other reason than transfer of moola from Al Jazera / money laundering right in front of our eyes. Remember Beck wanted to buy it and algore nearly had a cow.

I would really like to see a black bag job done where Soros wakes up in a country where he faces criminal charges that may involve the death penalty.
