GEORGE SOROS INFILTRATION OF CPAC
STATEMENT FOR THE CONGRESSIONAL RECORD CONGRESSMAN MARK E. SOUDER (IN-03) FEBRUARY 8, 2006
George Soros, the radical liberal financier who dedicated himself to defeating President George W. Bush in the last election, has taken a lesson from Jack Abramoff.
As much of Abramoffs pernicious lobbying technique has come to light, weve seen how he was adept at manipulating certain conservative organizations to pursue a decidedly anti-conservative agenda, namely the promotion of gambling. By working hand in hand with the Traditional Values Coalition (TVC), for example, he was able in 2000 to undermine conservatives best effort to outlaw on-line gambling. Proxy organizations played a fundamental role in Abramoffs strategy.
Since 1974, the American Conservative Union has held the Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, which is billed as a three-day meeting for thousands of conservative activists and leaders to discuss current issues and policies and set the agenda for the future. I myself have addressed the conference in the past.
One can imagine a conservatives surprise to read on the CPAC 2006 agenda that a representative of the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) is slated to moderate-yes, moderate-a panel Friday discussing drug policy. For those who are unacquainted with it, the pro-marijuana MPP has been funded by Soros in the past. Also represented on the panel is the Drug Policy Alliance, which is Soros principal pro-drug arm. Incidentally, the moderator himself is a convicted drug dealer.
What on earth were the CPAC organizers thinking? Why would the American Conservative Union allow extremist liberals like George Soros and Peter Lewis (who is responsible for most of MPPs funding) to access a meeting of conservatives? And, in exactly whose estimation would there be balance in a debate moderated by the MPP?
Thanks to Accuracy in Media Report editor Cliff Kincaid, these are just a few of the questions that the CPAC organizers now face. Id like to submit into the record his article of February 7, 2006, entitled Soros Infiltrates Conservative Movement. In exchange for a donation, is this 32-year old conservative conference turning itself into a Soros proxy organization just like Abramoffs TVC?
Over the last number of months, weve been surprised to learn how one such as Abramoff was able to exploit conservatives for his own purposes. Surely in this environment we cant miss seeing it when its happening once again.
Perhaps it is about time. After all the BILLIONS spent and LIBERTIES LOST the so-called War on Drugs needs this conversation.
soros appeals very widely to social issue libertarians(i.e hillary social ethics), IMO.
He also subscribes to open borders for Mexico and the US. I wonder who is on his FR payroll?
Actually, IMO, soros subscribes to an uber UN headed by his cronies(maurice strong, hillary, et al).
But what the hey soros hates GW Bush and is all for drugs and thus Libertarian organizations take his money with no qualms at all.
Personally, I think our drug laws could use some reform. Conservatives should debate this issue. However, the problem with CPAC is that it is allowing Ethan Nadelmann to present himself as a fellow conservative, when in fact he is a leftist and a Soros operative to boot.
I debated Nadelmann at CPAC last year. Here's the transcript. Read Nadelmann's comments carefully, and you will see that he used innuendo to give the impression that he was a conservative addressing fellow conservatives. Such deception reminds me of the old Communist Party front groups.
Mr. Nadelmann's presence was wholly inappropriate in a forum which CPAC touted under the rubric of, "Differences Within the Family," by which they meant, differences within the conservative family.
Nadelmann is not part of the conservative "family," nor is his sponsor George Soros. Therefore he should not be promoted as such.
While I applaud CPAC for inviting debate on drug policy, such debate needs to take place among actual conservatives. Leftists masquerading as conservatives have no place in such a forum.
A sop to Libertarians?
Sorry, won't work, it's been tried.
I don't care about the boogey man Soros. His multiple millions spent trying to defeat GWB in '04 was very successful, huh?
Ping - Soros again.
Mr. Poe, I agree deception isn't proper. We do need to start this conversation, people like Nadelman will get shown the door once we get serious about policy revisions.
You answered you own question. Look at the countries in the ROP area, their savagery hasn't stooped drugs there either.
Not only that he's got at least 8 freepers in his pocket.
Not only that Soros has succeded in controling both major parties in several east europe countries like Ukraine and Georgia.
CPAC is acting stupid.
Soros is only errand boy for really dangerous people who prefer to remain in the shadow. He himself is so stupid he could not do anything without inside information and outside help.
