Internal Enemy

While this story does not surprise me in the least, it should serve as a wakeup call for all of us.

The Story

So good ol' rich white guy turned commie George Soros funded the NASA "whistleblower" global warming guy to the tune of over $700,000. He also sponsored the supposed grass roots immigration rallies last year, and has been the funder of a lot of terrorist helping lawyers. Geez. This guy makes the Rosenberg's look downright patriotic.

Soros' "shaping public policies," as OSI calls it, is not illegal. But it's a problem for democracy because it drives issues with cash and then only lets the public know about it after it's old news.
That means the public makes decisions about issues without understanding the special agendas of groups behind them.

Without more transparency, it amounts to political manipulation. This leads to cynicism. As word of these short-term covert ops gets out, the public grows to distrust what it hears and tunes out.

The irony here is that Soros claims to be an advocate of an "open society." His OSI does just the legal minimum to disclose its activities. The public shouldn't have to wait until an annual report is out before the light is flipped on about the Open Society's political action.

This is a damn shame. I wonder if our wonderful unbiased media will report on any of this.
