Wouldn’t Shifty tell us all this just a political Quid Pro Quo? Election interference? Hurting your political rivals?
With so much of the attention going to Hunter Biden and Burisma, it’s easy to forget that another wealthy friend of the Obama administration had a lot to gain by the firing of that prosecutor, and the closing of his active cases… a certain George Soros.
While the 2016 presidential race was raging in America, Ukrainian prosecutors ran into some unexpectedly strong headwinds as they pursued an investigation into the activities of a nonprofit in their homeland known as the Anti-Corruption Action Centre (AntAC).
The focus on AntAC — whose youthful street activists famously wore “Ukraine F*&k Corruption” T-shirts — was part of a larger probe by Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s Office into whether $4.4 million in U.S. funds to fight corruption inside the former Soviet republic had been improperly diverted.
…It turns out the group that Ukrainian law enforcement was probing was co-funded by the Obama administration and liberal mega-donor George Soros. And it was collaborating with the FBI agents investigating then-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort’s business activities with pro-Russian figures in Ukraine.
This same Soros has skin in the game. And — by extension — so do his innumerable political supplicants.
Links have also been made between the ousted Ukranian Ambassador and one of Soros subsidiary groups.
With all the Democrats’ talk about corrupt foreign Oligarchs, it has never really occurred to Democrats that one of their beloved billionaire benefactors might be one of them.
In fact, any criticism of George Soros is written off as ‘antisemitic’ or ‘conspiracy theory’ even though Soros is not a particular friend of the nation of Israel, as expressed in a NYT article entitled ‘Israel’s War Against George Soros‘ — is Israel also ‘antisemitic’? Seems unlikely.
The Democrats HATE ‘dark money’ except when it helps them. The Koch Brothers were the bogeyman in their closet, despite their guy being a far bigger player in bending public opinion to his will by using means both fair and foul.
A multi-million-dollar ad blitz that features military veterans urging vulnerable Republicans in swing districts to support the impeachment inquiry into President Trump is funded by a progressive “dark money” group backed by billionaire left-wing activist George Soros.
The ads were scheduled to air this week on “Fox and Friends,” a favorite show of the president, in the Washington, D.C., market and in 13 Republican-held congressional districts, the Daily Caller News Foundation reported.
…The Daily Caller said the ads disclose they’re paid for by the group Defend American Democracy. But D.C. business registration documents reveal the group is one of the many projects of the Sixteen Thirty Fund, a dark money nonprofit that received $4.5 million from Soros’ Open Society Policy Center between 2012 and 2017, according to Open Secrets.
The Sixteen Thirty Fund reported receiving $52 million from a single anonymous donor in 2018. But as a 501(c)(4) nonprofit, the Daily Caller noted, it is not required to disclose the identity of its donors.
He was also linked to the ‘Demand Justice’ group that had campaigns readied against all 4 Judges on Trump’s short list even before Kavanaugh was announced. And we all see how that played out.
Some ‘rich and important’ people don’t actually trust the will of the people. Especially if it runs counter to their ‘larger’ purposes and aims.
So they drop their money bombs and pull rank on their influence to make sure that people make the ‘acceptable’ choice.
For many politicans, power is a gateway to wealth.
For billionaires with corrupt ambitions, it’s precisely the opposite. He could never spend all his billions on himself. Instead, his wealth is a gateway to power.
How can we call a philanthropist like Soros ‘corrupt’? (The Democrats love him, don’t they?)
When asked on a 60 Minutes interview whether he regretted his role assisting the Nazis to arrest and dispossess Jews condemned to the death camps when he himself was also a Jew, he said: no.
When asked whether it bothered him that he had crashed an entire nation’s economy for his own financial and political gain he didn’t consider it to be morally wrong. This is our supposed moral better.

Imagine for a moment there were an (R) after the man’s name, and he dumped over 18 Billion into his Open Society foundation in one shot to support Traditionalist and Conservative causes.
Would his supporters all see the light and be instantly transformed into conservatives? (And hoping to get the same kind of financial backing they do now?)
Or would they be calling him the Devil personified?
