    As the 2014 midterm elections approached, the media were quick to criticize conservative donors like the Koch brothers for backing issues important to them. But journalists largely ignored the incredible financial power being used to promote the liberal agenda. Five top donors – Michael Bloomberg, Warren Buffett, Pierre Omidyar, Tom Steyer and George Soros’s own son, Jonathan – are major funders of the left. Together, they have contributed at least $2.7 billion since 2000 to groups pushing abortion, gun control, climate change alarmism and liberal candidates. That’s not how major media depicted them. Broadcast networks applauded when billionaire hedge fund...

Christian Adams August 21, 2014 The vice president’s Boeing 757 delivered Eric Holder to St. Louis yesterday. In Ferguson, Holder announced that he was “a black man” and therefore had the power to heal Ferguson in ways that no other law enforcement official could. Yet his comments were sure to throw gasoline on fire burning hot with racial division. That shouldn’t shock anyone. It’s the community organizing model of running the Justice Department.

    George Soros gave $500,000 apiece to House Majority PAC and the League of Conservation Voters Victory Fund. Climate-change activist Tom Steyer gave the biggest super PAC donation in July with $7.5 million. Super PACs spent July beefing up for the fall campaign. Many groups filed new disclosure reports this week, leaving a paper trail littered with big checks from big names. Democrats dominate the list of notable July donors ... Michael Bloomberg is staying plenty active in his post-mayoral days. Aside from funding his gun-control-focused super PAC, Bloomberg has written checks to Senate Majority PAC and super PACs that backed...

McDonald was merely introduced as a “critic,” with no ideological label, and Avila never verbally said the name of his group. The Soros connection and the group’s involvement in Perry’s indictment charges were not addressed. NBC and CBS still have not mentioned the group. Sometimes it seems like there isn’t a single political issue that a Soros-funded group isn’t involved in. Texans for Public Justice, one of the...

    Liberal billionaire George Soros gave $500,000 to Texans for Public Justice, one of the groups behind Rick Perry’s indictment charges. Rick Perry was indicted by a Texas grand jury for vetoing funding for the state’s public integrity unit, unless the lead prosecutor resigned following her drunk driving arrest. Since the news of Perry’s indictment charge broke on Aug. 15, none of the network morning or evening news broadcasts have mentioned the Soros connection, or mentioned Texans for Public Justice at all. Naturally, this piece of information is going completely unreported by the mainstream media. When it comes to funding, liberals...

    KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine said European companies would have to agree on a major revision of gas contracts with Russia if Kiev imposes sanctions on Moscow and Gazprom, a measure that may lead to disruption in gas transit to Europe. Ukraine Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk said last week that parliament would debate sanctions against Russia on Tuesday, which could include bans on Russian gas and sanctions against Russian banks. Ukraine gas grid Naftogaz said on Monday that the sanctions could limit or even exclude some companies from piping gas through the country, which would allow other firms to take over...

    Experts in the Middle East conflict expected to see a demand on Israel to liberate particular terrorists as a ransom for the kidnapped boys. Such exchanges have been typical of the past. But why not this time? The answer: Hamas wanted to entice Egypt into warfare with Israel in order to help the Muslim Brotherhood regain power in Egypt. Hamas had a broader agenda for the kidnappings, murders, and rocket fire into Israel. Its aggression stirred up pro-Palestinian, pro-Hamas opinion by Egypt’s politicians, journalists and media in order to put pressure on Al-Sisi’s new government to help the “oppressed” Gazans....

Beck stated that Obama would not have to step in and ask for $3.7 billion if private charities would pick up the slack and give to the swarm of illegals crossing the border.Is he kidding?  Do we really need more churches and non-profits enabling this blatant attack on America? Rich people and liberal elite billionaires have no skin in the game when it comes to the consequences of illegal immigration so what do they care?It’s the working...

    Center for American Progress wants mileage-based highway fee By Keith Laing - 07/11/14 12:08 PM EDT The Center for American Progress is calling for Congress to ditch the federal gas tax in lieu of a system where drivers pay fees for road construction based on how many miles they travel. The proposed mileage-based system has been controversial in previous transportation funding debates because critics question how government would monitor the traveling habits of drivers without infringing upon their privacy. ADVERTISEMENT But the Center for American Progress said Friday that taxing drivers based on how far they drive is a much...

    July 10, 2014 IRS Documents Given to Soros and Gorelick Declan Finn We know the IRS has leaked documents about donor lists to left-wing groups; after all, they confessed.In May 2013, they admitted that groups with “tea party” or “patriots” in their names were flagged for extra IRS review. People were questioned the content of their prayers, and if they would promise not to protest Planned Parenthood.What could make this worse? If the IRS gave these documents to a left-wing organization as a part of the process.Enter the Darth Vader of the conservative world, George Soros.From WND: WASHINGTON – Though...

    He’s busy with fundraisers today and probably bowling or miniature golf or something, but he’s going to squeeze in a few brief remarks on why he’s not much interested in summarily deporting the hundreds of thousands of illegals who are on their way from Central America. You ready? The long-awaited tarmac handshake with Perry is already on the books:

    Glenn Beck said bringing soccer balls, teddy bears, and hot meals to illegal immigrants who have been detained along the U.S.-Mexico border will be the most right thing he has ever done. On July 19, Beck will travel to McAllen, Texas, because he believes Americans must "open our hearts" to the illegal immigrant children who have been unlawfully entering the country. "I’ve never taken a position more deadly to my career than this – and I have never, ever taken a position that is more right than this," Beck claimed, according to The Blaze. Beck said helping illegal immigrant children,...
  • Sarah Palin just joined the ‘impeach Obama’ crowd. That’s bad news for the GOP.

    Sarah Palin on Tuesday joined a growing chorus of Republicans calling for the impeachment of President Obama, writing in a Breitbart op-ed that the influx of young illegal immigrants over the southern border "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, 'no mas.' " Mixed/careless metaphors aside, this is nothing but bad news for Republicans — especially four months until the 2014 election. Palin is hardly the first GOP politician to raise the issue of impeachment over the past couple years. Others include Sens. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) and Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Reps. Blake Farenthold (R-Tex.),...

    The oil industry needs to sue Obama and George Soros for Corruption and Collusion. Obama's biggest individual political campaign donor, George Soros, was reported to be desperately buying up energy companies such as Pioneer Natural Resources, which were reflected in his 1st quarter filings for 2014. The filings for 2014 first 1st quarter were notably large and focused, even for Soros. They were focused in the Energy sector, specifically those associated with the Eagle Ford Basin location. In June 2014, for example, it was reported, "Both Soros’ top stock and the stock of which he is buying the most is...

    In a totally unexpected political shocker it has been discovered in emails to the IRS by the Bilderberg Group that Karl Rove and George Soros have conspired to form the WDDIM Party. Citing ridiculous mailing and advertising costs of appeals to their bases for political donations to achieve the same ends, Rove and Soros have agreed to share their donor bases and distribute the wealth to the candidates of their new WDDIM Party. "The GOP is decrepit and dying," Rove was quoted as saying, and Soros is concerned that he is losing control of his moonbats. Rove and Soros traded...

    White working-class Britons are "marginalised" due to immigration and badly paid jobs, according to a study by the Open Society Foundations (OSF). The group, set up by billionaire George Soros, spent a year talking to residents of the Higher Blackley area of Manchester, northern England, and asking them their views on a wide variety of subjects. They found that residents felt disillusioned and disempowered after years of mass immigration to the area. Although the residents have a "strong work ethic", they are still finding it hard to get jobs thanks to mass migration. Researchers also found that although there is...
