Democrats, George Soros, The Race Card, And Cloward-Piven?

Stacy McCain has been connecting dots, and what he finds ought to scare the Hell out of all of us.

Yesterday, I linked Joel Gerhke’s Examiner story in a post titled “Great: Corporate America Now Paying Democrats to Call Americans Racist,” which mentioned that the 2010 annual report for Maya Wiley’s Center for Social Inclusion (PDF, see Page 13) “lists many of the usual suspects, including George Soros’s Open Society Institute and the Soros-funded Tides Foundation.”

Operating in “file-and-forget” mode, I moved on to other stories until last night, when I was having fun on Twitter with the#ObamaBedtimeStories meme, and one of my jokes got re-Tweeted by my friend, investigative reporter Matthew Vadum. Because Matthew is perhaps the nation’s leading expert on the ACORN/SEIU/Soros connection, it occurred to me he might be able to get some data on the Soros connection to what Gehrke had reported. So I sent him a couple of Tweets about it. By the time I got up about 7 a.m. today, Vadum had sent me a spreadsheet listing foundation contributions to Wiley’s outfit. Quickly adding up the numbers and doing additional research online, within two-and-a-half hours I’d filed this brief report for The American Spectator:

A non-profit organization that provided training last week to House Democrats, portraying Republican opponents as racially motivated, has received significant funding from foundations linked to controversial left-wing multibillionaire George Soros.
Soros’s Open Society Institute has given $75,000 to the Center for Social Inclusion, which has also received more than $850,000 from the Soros-connectedTides Foundation/Tides Center since 2005, according to documents obtained by The American Spectator.
In a training session for House Democrats and their congressional staffers last week, Center for Social Inclusion founder and president Maya Wiley described “conservative messages” as being “racially coded,” and suggested that Democrats “raise racial disparities” in public policy discussions, Joel Gerhke of the Washington Examiner reported. . . .
The Soros-Wiley connection was noted by Matthew Vadum of the Capital Research Center. Vadum, an investigative reporter and American Spectatorcontributor, is author of the widely-praised recent bookSubversion, Inc., an exhaustive exposé of ACORN. Wiley’s background also drew attention from Michelle Horstman of PJ Media, who noted that Maya Wiley is the daughter of 1960s radical George Wiley, founder of the National Welfare Rights Organization.

Please read the whole thing. Connecting the dots to the National Welfare Rights Organization links the Center for Social Inclusion to the “Cloward-Piven Strategy,” a 1960s left-wing effort to foment economic crisis and social revolution. This direct connection between the Soros-funded radical network and congressional Democrats could prove to be a major story, if Gerhke follows up on his original scoop and other reporters begin asking questions about why Democrats are getting election-year advice from such a controversial source.

There is lots more, be sure to read it all. The Communist dream of bringing America down never died, it just took on different forms, and disguised itself in many ways, but the intent has always been there.

Rio Norte Line looks at Maya Wiley

I looked at the website of the Center for Social Inclusion to check up on Maya…and guess who was in her bio?

A veritable who’s who of left wing activism and one a hell of a lot of money…

Geroge Soros (Open Society Foundation), The Tides Foundation/Tides Center funded by Teresa Heinz-Kerry (The Heinz Endowment), The Ford Foundation, The Rockefeller Foundation and the ACLU.

Maya Wiley is the founder and President of the Center for Social Inclusion. A civil rights attorney and policy advocate, Maya has litigated, lobbied the U.S. Congress and developed programs to transform structural racism in the U.S. and in South Africa.

Prior to founding the Center for Social Inclusion, Maya was a senior advisor on race and poverty to the Director of U.S. Programs of the Open Society Institute and helped develop and implement the Open Society Foundation – South Africa’s Criminal Justice Initiative. She has worked for the American Civil Liberties Union National Legal Department, in the Poverty and Justice Program of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. and in the Civil Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. Maya previously served on the boards of Human Rights Watch, the Institute on Race and Poverty at the University of Minnesota School of Law and the Council on Foreign Relations. She currently chairs the Tides Network Board and was named a NY Moves magazine 2009 Power Woman. In 2011 Wiley was named as one of “20 Leading Black Women Social Activists Advocating Change” by The Root.com.

Maya has authored an article, “Talk About Race Right: the Why and How of Persuasive Race Talk” for the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies 2012 Focus magazine. She was a contributing author to the 2010 Philanthropic Initiative for Racial Equity’s (PRE) Critical Issues Forum, Vol. 3 and to the National Urban League’s 2006 State of Black America Report. Additionally, Maya authored a chapter on race, equity and land use planning (“Smart Growth and the Legacy of Segregation in Richland County, South Carolina”) in Growing Smarter: Achieving Livable Communities, Environmental Justice and Regional Equity (The MIT Press: Cambridge, MA, 2007). Maya holds a J.D. from Columbia University School of Law (1989) and a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Dartmouth College (1986).

Accuracy in Media looks at Cloward-Piven, and that voter fraud the Left is fighting so hard to protect by fighting against voter ID laws.

This report reveals the Left’s vote fraud strategy for the 2012 elections. Like a KGB operation, it is thorough, multi-faceted and redundant. It has overt and covert, illegal and legal elements, the latter of which are designed, at least in part, to facilitate illegal activities later. It is a deliberate, premeditated, comprehensive plan to win the 2012 presidential election at all costs, and is in keeping with the organizational methods, associations and ethics of the Community-Organizer-in-Chief, Barack Obama.

The Left seeks fundamental structural change to our entire form of government. In keeping with their amoral, means-justifies-ends philosophy, they will register any voters, dead or alive, legal or illegal, who will then vote as many times as possible, in order to establish a “permanent progressive majority.” As two New York Democrats recently caught in a vote fraud scandal told police, “voter fraud is an accepted way of winning elections…”

As I have said, the Left has been working very hard to make sure as many of us are dependent upon the Liberal policies of the Left. This is a way of the Left insuring a firm hold on political power.

This strategy has been under development for decades. They have constructed an entire industry devoted to this task and pursue a multifaceted strategy to accomplish it:

1. Swamp election officials with overwhelming numbers of registrations at the last possible minute, a huge proportion of which are deliberately fraudulent, in order to create systematic chaos. This accomplishes numerous goals:

  • Makes verification of registrations difficult, given the small size and limited budgets of state and local election offices.
  • Provides multiple opportunities for vote fraud.
  • Throws the entire voting process into question, providing pretext for lawsuits where concessions may be obtained from election officials.
  • When election officials challenge registrations, they are accused of “voter suppression.” This in turn serves complementary goals:
    • Charge of “voter suppression” reinforces the Left’s narrative about America as an oppressive, “racist” country.
    • Publicity and lawsuits intimidate election officials, who settle on terms favorable to the Left.

2. Activists sue state authorities for “voter suppression,” creating further chaos and pressuring them to become de facto taxpayer-funded voter registration operations;

3. Eric Holder’s Justice Department tacitly supports voter intimidation tactics, sues states and backs private lawsuits, and resists reform as “voter suppression.”

4. Leftist echo chamber discredits allegations of vote fraud, supports “suppression” theme, and promotes advantageous legislation.

The ultimate goal is a systematized, taxpayer-funded voting machinery that will guarantee maximum participation from the Left’s voting demographic while undermining the ability to manage elections and prevent fraud.

Much much more at the link, go read it all. As I have predicted, and I am certainly not alone here, this election will be unlike any other in our lifetime. The Democrats will do ANYTHING to win!

Just follow the money

When asking why Obama does certain things, we need to ask ourselves this question, who benefits? It seems that there is a pattern of some very rich people making huge profits because of Obama’s decisions. I guess those 1%ers are of more concern to our president than creating jobs for working Americans. First it was Warren Buffet reaping the rewards from killing the Keystone XL Pipeline. Then, yesterday, Team Obama unveiled a proposal for natural-gas powered vehicles  and an interesting figure might stand to profit, big time

The proposal would offer incentives for companies to buy and use trucks powered by natural gas. Obama announced the effort at a UPS facility in Las Vegas that received stimulus funding to buy natural gas vehicles and build a fueling station for them.

The proposal is remarkably similar to the New Alternative Transportation to Give Americans Solutions (NAT GAS) Act.

One company that stands to benefit handsomely from the president’s proposal is Westport Innovations. The company converts diesel engines to be fueled by natural gas. Wall Street analysts predicted a boom for the company if the NAT GAS Act were passed. CNBC analyst Jim Cramer said he “expects shares to absolutely explode” in the event the legislation were to pass.

And take a wild guess who is a major stock holder in Westport is George Soros. Soros’s hedge fund holds 3,160,063 company shares. And, Soros is, as we know, a major supporter and donor to Obama. Now, there is nothing wrong with making money, but Soros hates America, and Capitalism, I mean he loves him some OWS especially the violent aspects of it apprently

As the U.S. economy continues to deteriorate, anger will grow and rioting in the streets is sure to follow. “It’s already started,” he says. “Yes, yes, yes,” Soros adds “almost gleefully,” Newsweek writer John Arlidge editorializes.

For years Soros has longed for an opportunity to transform America into a socialist state. “The system we have now has actually broken down, only we haven’t quite recognized it and so you need to create a new one and this is the time to do it,” he said in 2009 as he created the Institute for New Economic Thinking with a $50 million endowment.

This Communist sympathizer co-founded the ultra-secretive Democracy Alliance, a billionaires’ club that funds leftist political infrastructure. He has said that European-style socialism “is exactly what we need now” and favors American decline. Soros praises Red China effusively, saying the totalitarian nation has “a better-functioning government than the United States.”

Ah, a radical Leftist who supports Obama? Who could have seen that coming? The question is, if Soros loathes Capitalism, and loves Socialism so much, why is he willing to reap “windfall profits” from such a venture? Is there no consistency on the Left? Well, we know the Left has no consistency. Soros is an elitist who wishes to dictate how others should live, and how much money they ought to make. Those rules he would set, of course, never apply to him. Like Al Gore, who can demonize SUV owners for “killing the planet” while he lives in a massive mansion and takes private jets all over the world, Soros  can bash the economic system that makes him rich as an evil thing. And why not? Soros is the kind of  “useful idiot” that Lennin loved

We know that Soros is a man who hates America, and individual liberty. Human Events took a look at Soros and what he supports, and the evidence of his hatred for the U.S. is startling

Soros started the Open Society Institute in 1993 as a way to spread his wealth to progressive causes.  Using Open Society as a conduit, Soros has given more than $7 billion to a who’s who of left-wing groups.  This partial list of recipients of Soros’ money says it all: ACORN, Apollo Alliance, National Council of La Raza, Tides Foundation, Huffington Post, Southern Poverty Law Center, Soujourners, People for the American Way, Planned Parenthood, and the National Organization for Women.

Do a search on some of those organizations and you will see just how out there Soros is. Now, if Soros is such a radical, and he clearly is, then it ought to frighten us all to look at Soros support of President Obama. And, as Human Events points out, Soros locked onto Obama very early

Soros once said that removing President George W. Bush from office in 2004 was the “central focus of my life.”  He put his money where his mouth is, giving $23.58 million to various 527 groups dedicated to defeating Bush.  His early financial support helped jump-start Barack Obama’s political career.  Soros hosted a 2004 fund-raiser for Obama when he was running for the Illinois Senate and gave the maximum-allowed contribution within hours of Obama’s announcement that he was running for President.

So Soros did not jump on the Obama bandwagon after he Obama won the election, or even after he was nominated. He was in Obama’s corner when Obama ran for the Illinois Senate! Clearly Soros saw something he liked about Obama. And considering the causes and ideologies that Soros embraces……………
