US pays Soros to disrupt foreign politics

The U.S. government has quietly spent millions of taxpayer dollars to destabilize the democratically elected, center-right government in Macedonia by colluding with leftwing billionaire philanthropist George Soros, records obtained by Judicial Watch show. Barack Obama’s U.S. Ambassador to Macedonia, Jess L. Baily, has worked behind the scenes with Soros’ Open Society Foundation to funnel large sums of American dollars for the cause, constituting an interference of the U.S. Ambassador in domestic political affairs in violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.

The cash flows through the State Department and the famously corrupt U.S. Agency of International Development (USAID), which is charged with providing global economic, development and humanitarian assistance. USAID has allocated about $5 million to leftwing Soros groups in Macedonia since 2012, documents show, and at least $9.5 million has been earmarked by the agency to intervene in the Balkan nation’s governmental affairs for 2016-2011. State Department figures have been tougher to come by and Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for the numbers. Judicial Watch also fired off a public records request to USAID because the preliminary figures, obtained through various sources in both the U.S. and Macedonia, appear to be incomplete.

Here’s how the clandestine operation functions, according to high-level sources in Macedonia and the U.S. that have provided Judicial Watch with records as part of an ongoing investigation. The Open Society Foundation has established and funded dozens of leftwing, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in Macedonia to overthrow the conservative government. One Macedonian government official interviewed by Judicial Watch in Washington D.C. recently, calls it the “Soros infantry.” The groups organize youth movements, create influential media outlets and organize violent protests to undermine the institutions and policies implemented by the government. One of the Soros’ groups funded the translation and publication of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” into Macedonian. The book is a tactical manual of subversion, provides direct advice for radical street protests and proclaims Lucifer to be the first radical. Thanks to Obama’s ambassador, who has not been replaced by President Trump, Uncle Sam keeps the money flowing so the groups can continue operating and recruiting, sources in Macedonia and the U.S. confirm.

With a population of about 2 million, Macedonia has one of the more conservative governments in Europe. This includes the lowest flat tax in Europe, close ties with Israel and pro-life policies. The country recently built a border fence to crackdown on an illegal immigration crisis that overwhelmed law enforcement agencies. Between 10,000 and 12,000 illegal aliens were crossing the Greek-Macedonian border daily at the peak of the European migration crisis, a Macedonian official told Judicial Watch, and the impact was devastating. This is likely of big interest to Soros, a renowned open borders advocate who pushes international governance, diminished U.S. global power and an increase in Muslim immigration. Soros spent tens of millions of dollars to support Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Just this month Hungary’s prime minister lashed out against Soros for funding groups to secretly influence the country’s politics. “Large-bodied predators are swimming here in the waters,” said Viktor Orban in his annual state of the nation speech. “This is the trans-border empire of George Soros, with tons of money and international heavy artillery.”

This appears to be the case in Macedonia with the help of American financing. There have been a number of violent protests in recent months that have been coordinated by Soros’ Open Society Foundation through its U.S.-funded NGOs, sources tell Judicial Watch. Some U.S. members of Congress have expressed interest in the issue and have demanded answers from Ambassador Baily, USAID and the State Department. In typical fashion, the State Department has stonewalled the inquiries and USAID hasn’t been much more forthcoming. Last month Utah Senator Mike Lee sent Ambassador Baily a letter asking questions involving the U.S. Mission to Macedonia’s involvement in the political process and its connections to the Open Society Foundation. It’s unlikely that Americans will receive answers, especially since Baily is probably on his way out. The fact remains however, that millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars have already been spent on this illicit operation and the government agencies need to be held accountable.

John Kasich

Ohio Governor John Kasich is a man on a mission . . . maybe not his own mission, but he’s on one.

Kasich has no statistical chance of winning the GOP nomination in a fair fight. Literally. He could win every single delegate from now until convention and still not have the required majority.

So why in the heck is this guy still in the race?

Because he’s being a good little soldier for the establishment.

Kasich jumped into the race nearly a month following Donald Trump’s announcement.

From the start, Kasich was lined up to be a spoiler to Trump in the event that his campaign caught momentum . . . and it did.

Having very little name ID outside of his state, Kasich’s popularity in Ohio was a stop-gap guarantee that Trump (or another somewhat outsider such as Cruz) would not take the Republican nomination.

Marco Rubio is now playing the same role in Florida . . . but failing.

In reviewing Kasich’s FEC reports and those of his PAC, this is a guy who is serving both sides of the establishment, Republican and Democrat.

Kasich’s PAC, New Day for America, has received over $202,700 from Scott Bessent of Soros Fund Management.

The donation is a strong sign that Hillary Clinton does not want to face Donald Trump in the general election and would rather go head-to-head with an establishment candidate or, even better, Ted Cruz.

The Ohio Governor, after voting today, told the press that he would be staying in the race regardless of he wins or losses the state.

His job is done, so why would he stay in if he cannot win?

During the same press conference, Kasich signaled that he would be addressing Donald Trump’s “statements about women” which he just found out about.

Past Ohio, Kasich is going to play the role of attack dog as Rubio will be out or diminished and Ted Cruz has not fared well at all while in the sights of the billionaire front runner.

This is a desperate establishment at play folks and their childish games have made this the most ridiculous election cycle in history . . . and it’s March.
