Earth Day - Soros

George Soros Turns 83, Still Funds Liberal Groups and Media
By Mike Ciandella | August 12, 2013 | 1:29 PM EDT

Liberal billionaire George Soros celebrates his 83rd birthday on Aug. 12. The left-wing philanthropist continues to have a deep-vested interest in American politics, including a recent endorsement of  Democrat Bill de Blasio for mayor of New York City.

Soros has a long history of funding liberals and attacking conservatives, and spent more than $25.5 million to defeat President George W. Bush in 2004.

Soros also aids hundreds of left-wing groups in America each year under the auspices of his Open Society Foundations. In just 10 years, he gave more than $550 million to liberal organizations in the United States. This has included money going to fund liberal agenda topics like Earth Day, gun control, government funding of student loans and even the IRS targeting of conservatives.

Soros gave $6.1 million to groups linked to the pressure on the IRS to target conservative nonprofits. The Soros-funded, and Pulitzer Prize winning, Pro Publica helped build this case by publishing two stories in 2012 that targeted conservative nonprofits. When the IRS scandal finally did come to light, 23 media outlets, including MSNBC, defended the targeting of conservatives. 16 groups involved in the defense of IRS targeted had received a combined total of $14 million from Soros since 2000.

In 2013, Soros gave an additional $20 million to groups partnered with the liberal, environmental Earth Day holiday.

Senators to probe Soros funding without help of State Department

April 21, 2017

Republican senators could investigate U.S. tax dollars funding liberal billionaire George Soros’ networks abroad “through other means” if the Trump administration’s State Department doesn’t provide answers.

Six GOP senators wrote Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in March to ask for a State Department probe into how the federal grants are being used by Soros-funded Open Society Foundations, specifically in Macedonia and Albania, to promote progressive causes and undermine conservative and moderate political leaders in those countries. The State Department Bureau of Legislative Affairs responded not by addressing the question of a probe, but defending the U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID.

Sens. Mike Lee of Utah, James Inhofe of Oklahoma, Ted Cruz of Texas, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Thom Tillis of North Carolina, and David Perdue of Georgia made the initial inquiry to Tillerson. Lee hoped for more in the response.

The senators highlighted the countries mentioned above in their original letter to Tillerson, which said:

    As the recipient of multiple grant awards and serving as a USAID contractor implementing projects in this small nation of 2.1 million people, our taxpayer funding foreign aid goes far, allowing Foundation Open Society-Macedonia (FOSM) to push a progressive agenda and invigorated the political left.

USAID has provided the Soros-funded Open Society Foundation $4.8 million in Macedonia, according to Judicial Watch.


The Open Society Foundations 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, called 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.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

If there were truth in advertising, it would be called Carbon Tax Day, because that's what it's really all about.

If it were truly about protecting the environment, they would rail against things like depleted uranium, chemtrails, fluoridated water supplies and GMO crop contamination.

But instead they wax alarmist all day about plant food.
