Just Say No! to “George Soros for President”

Quote:The Democrat Party platform’s hidden Soros Slush Fund

My syndicated column today delves into the Democrat Party platform and exposes how untold amounts of taxpayer funding would be steered to militant, George Soros-backed left-wing groups. Welcome to Barack Obama’s “Social Investment Fund Network.”

Follow the money.

That goes for both presidential candidates who carry the Soros taint. Ugh.

The Democrat Party platform’s hidden Soros Slush Fund
by Michelle Malkin

The Democrat Party platform is like a bag of pork rinds. You never know what high-fat liberal government morsel you’re gonna get.

Buried in the 94-page document is a noble-sounding proposal to create a “Social Investment Fund Network.” The program would provide federal money to “social entrepreneurs and leading nonprofit organizations [that] are assisting schools, lifting families out of poverty, filling health care gaps, and inspiring others to lead change in their own communities.” The Democrat Party promises to “support these results-oriented innovators” by creating an office to “coordinate government and nonprofit efforts” and then showering “a series of grants” on the chosen groups “to replicate these programs nationwide.”

In practice, this Barack Obama brainchild would serve as a permanent, taxpayer-backed pipeline to Democrat partisan outfits masquerading as public-interest do-gooders. This George Soros Slush Fund would be political payback in spades. Obama owes much of his Chicago political success to financial support from radical, left-wing billionaire and leading “social entrepreneur” Soros. In June 2004, Soros threw a big fund-raiser at his New York home for Obama’s Illinois Senate campaign. Soros and family personally chipped in $60,000. In April 2007, Obama was back in New York for a deep-pocketed Manhattan fund-raising soiree, with Soros lurking in his shadow (yes, that’s him behind Obama grasping onto the stairs).

No doubt with Soros’s approbation (if not advice from the hands-on “progressive” activist or his advisors), Obama fleshed out his Social Investment Fund Network plan last December. In concert with his mandatory volunteerism pitch and $6 billion anti-poverty plan, Obama called for the creation of a “Social Entrepreneurship Agency” to dispense the funds in unspecified amounts. The agency would be a government-supported nonprofit corporation “similar to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting,” which runs public television. (And we’ve all seen how fair and balanced that lib-dominated, Bill Moyers-boosting private-public enterprise turned out.)

Obama cites the Harlem Children’s Zone, which provides after-school activities and mentors to children in New York, as an example of a program that should be funded. (HCZ’s former senior leader, Shawn Dove, is now an official at Soros’s Open Society Institute.) The problem with such initiatives, as Mitchell Moss pointed out in the Manhattan Institute’s City Journal several years ago, is that these private-public partnerships formed under the guise of economic renewal often become nothing more than fronts that coordinate “an enormous safety net for social services.” Private donations give the illusion of self-help and philanthropic independence, but in reality, the “clients” are never weaned from the teat of the welfare state. They simply learn how to milk it more efficiently.

Even more troubling is how the Democrat Party/Obama plan would siphon away untold millions or billions of public tax dollars into the Soros empire without taxpayer recourse. Obama promises “accountability” measures to ensure the money is spent wisely. But who would assess effectiveness of the spending? Why, experts in the social entrepreneurship community, of course. Fox, meet henhouse.

Soros has donated some $5 billion of his fortune to left-wing non-profit groups through the Open Society Institute — which is committed to Soros’s militant ideology of toppling the “fascist” tyranny of the United States, which he says must undergo “de-Nazification” in favor of “justice.” The mob at Obama-endorsing MoveOn, purveyors of the “General Betray Us” smear against Commanding General, MNF-I, David Petraeus, is the most notorious Soros-backed political arm. But scores of other activist non-profits have received Soros funding under the guise of doing non-partisan “community” or “social justice” work — and it is exactly such leftist activist groups that would be first in line for the Democrat Party/Obama’s “social investment” seed money.

Point in case: ACORN. As I’ve reported before, Obama’s old friends at the Chicago-based non-profit now take in 40 percent of its revenues from American taxpayers. They have raked in tens of millions in federal anti-poverty grants while their operatives preside over massive voter fraud, corporate shakedowns, and mortgage scams across the country. Soros has donated at least $150,000 to the group, according to Investor’s Business Daily, and “heads a secretive rich-man’s club called ‘Democracy Alliance’ that has doled out $20 million to activist groups like ACORN.”

Once the spigot is turned on, there’s no turning back.

Where are fiscal conservatives on this far-Left boondoggle? Well, if you’re wondering why the McCain campaign doesn’t raise hell over this proposed left-wing non-profit/government pipeline, it’s because McCain himself is a Soros beneficiary. His “Reform Institute, ” a tax-exempt, supposedly independent 501©(3) group focused on campaign finance reform, was funded with Soros-funded Open Society Institute and Tides Foundation.

Birds of a Big Government feather flock together– and look out for each other. Watch your wallet


It is beginning to appear that Soros is Hussein's puppet master.

Why is typical of the Left to view those of us who refuse to acquiesce to the demands of tyrants and traitors as warmongers.

Most likely because that is all he can come up, upon the spur of the moment.

Leftards are impulsive and many are totally dependent on emotions, so it has to be done while their attention span allows for a rebuttal, regardless the quality, or lack thereof. :lol:

Thaq,

No,you're a warmonger alright,you just like the anti American side to be free to war on us while you sit in Thailand. You're opposition to war is only opposition to the USA fighting back.

You don't concern yourself with war efforts from our enemies so much.

Uh, because the Left views tyrants and traitors as heroes and comrades in arms.

Just an observation.

No one could insult the US expat community with the same effectiveness as you yourself have done.

Your signature says you "live in Thailand now and don't give a hoot" which is why you so passionately and and distastefully malign a person you don't even know.

On top of that, most Expats live abroad for professional reasons, you seem to have done it for the Thaiboys. Good for you its important to have a hobby or is it also professional, (involved in any inappropriate kiddie pics or human trafficing lately?).

Most expats I know can't wait to go back to the US. The reality is simply that America for all its shortcomings is still the best country on Earth. In fact it isn't even close.

My signature is a joke! It is based on the famous American columnist for the Bangkok Post Bernard Trink who is known for the saying: I DON'T GIVE A HOOT!

Clearly I care very much about the USA.
No, most expats are very happy living abroad. Some want to go home someday, some don't. Either choice has NOTHING to do with their AMERICAN PATRIOTISM!
Living abroad you are MORE AMERICAN than you EVER CAN BE if you stay. If you don't understand that, you just haven't had the experience. YOUR LOSS!
As far as your outrageous charges related to living in THAILAND, my beloved ADOPTED HOME, I won't bother to respond to such filth. You live in America? How many Iraqi children have you murdered? Just as unfair and IGNORANT as your statement.

Hey everybody look a link that isn't a leftwing kook blog like the Daily Kos or Huffington.

And I thought my post was a useless personal attack for which I was mildly ashamed. Now I can be proud that provoked a link. S6

I am surprised didn't have an aneurism and die after this round. :lol:

I am wondering how relevant it was to the main topic.

Anyways, Soros has always been a major power-broker among the idiots, coming to this country and making a fortune to turn what made him wealthy upside down.

Leftism is insanity obviously.

Why is this a big surprise? We all should have expected it and therefore it is not really news.

You are correct there. It does show an entirely different mindset, about how one looks at the event, and what it really means.

To be fair, McCain could be doing what he is doing, on purpose for the camera, but not likely. Clearly Obama did this unscripted and that is the real message. The message is that this trip to Ground Zero is not that important to him, and he sees no real reason to revere the event.

I wonder if others will see this for what it signifies.
