George Soros’ Fascism from Democrats for All Americans

A Glimpse inside George Soros’s Open Society Foundations

by Marion DS Dreyfus  at  American Thinker:

If you wake up with a spearmint-fresh brain that hasn’t read a magazine, seen a newscast or exchanged what’s been happening, you could be excused  for being charmed and seduced by the programs offered by the Open Society Foundations, a “rights” organization that bills itself as a grant-making association formed by billionaire George Soros in 1993.

Materials available at the entrance to his Open Society building lobby assert that Soros is one of the world’s biggest philanthropists, having given away, his materials say, over $32 billion. Recipients of his international meddling would have other nomenclatures for this.

Offered at the Open Society every few weeks are slide-ameliorated talks on issues of concern to mostly Third World countries.  And, of course, progressive Democrats.

The recent one, was held, as are most, at Soros’ luxe building on West 57th off Broadway. The topic, which was preceded by a color documentary of some 20 minutes’ duration in Spanish (English subtitles, mostly), was titled: “The Industrialization of Coca.”  The lecture title could have been interpreted as a criticism of coca leaves’ commercialization. But it wasn’t. Instead, four panelists, a translator, and a moderator spoke of the many medicinal and commercial uses of coca leaves, trying to dispel the taint that instantly accompanies the noun coca.

On page 17 of a 68-page brochure* richly illustrated with graphs, black-and-white images, and reference tables, there is a table comparing the nutritional offerings of coca with lentils, beans, corn and plantains. The five parameters include crude protein, phosphorus, calcium, potassium, and iron, all in milligrams. Coca does indeed, from the table, stand up to scrutiny and comparison, coming in just under lentils and beans in all but potassium, and comes in far higher than all in iron (55.8 mg), more than eight times the nearest contender, lentils. And coca comes in with more than four times as much phosphorus as lentils and beans, as well as 16 times the next nearest contender, beans, in calcium.

Another table provides other elements of the bland leaf (all recorded in dry base, which refers to the dehydrated vegetal matter submitted to labs for analysis):  Neutral detergent fiber, acid detergent fiber, cellulose,  hemicellulose, ashes, carbs, lignans, and humidity. These, from a 2015 study, comparing results to a prior 1975 study on the same lab protocols.

So it would appear that in fact, properly handled, coca is indeed  a valuable addition to the medicine-  and pharmacopoeia shelf.

The documentary displays leathery farmers and their equally worn wives planting, tending, reaping, and preparing coca plants in South America. It is emphasized that banning their bread and butter will impoverish the men women and children making their living in the fields for generations.

You enter,  if your name is listed on a sheet perused by a kindly pewter-haired gentleman Cerberus, who directs you along the hall and then down the stairs some 20 steps, to a large, well-lit series of rooms off a reception area.

There, before any talks begin, a bright white anteroom is spread with 15 different  kinds of delicious hors d’oeuvres, from cunning dim sum to shredded salads to fish balls and dip. A barista at the far end of the room dispenses wine, sparkling water, soda, and juice.

All of this is free, for every talk given. There is quite the selection of pony-tailed and man–bunned superannuated hippies, leftists and grad students making themselves platefuls. And having seconds.

It’s not hard to see why people would gravitate to a free buffet spread and beverages, all free, all seemingly limitless.

So seduction begins the moment you get down the stairs and scarf the food and drink. The panelists are accredited, many having ‘advanced degrees’ and living in the countries under discussion. At the coca talk, one of the main speakers spoke only in Spanish, translated paragraphs later by a interpreter in good English. She went on many sentences too long, however, before the translator recited her words in English.

After the hour-long presentation, extended with Q & A, the visitor can go back out to the food and get thirds, and solicit more wine or soft drinks.

When you leave, upstairs at the turnstiles going out, there is a glass jar with dozens of colored jelly beans you can scoop out and plop into your mouth, en route home. Everywhere you look are snazzy brochure stands and expensively produced handouts telling you where else the Soros hand goes: Hungary. Romania. Italy. Germany. France. South America and some African countries.

These fora are just a slim slice of the Soros empire. The billionaire has initiatives of all sorts on much higher levels, costing many millions of his vast fortune.

One of his initiatives, co-produced with Barack Obama when he was president, but apparently still chugging away beneath the radar, tried to shoehorn homeless and poor into every community, so as to disperse the poor and give a fair shake to those not as wealthy as the reviled 1%. This initiative cost nearly $1 million in one year, but it has met, not surprisingly, with opposition.

One wonders whether Obama and Soros themselves would be included in these forced neighborhoods.

The attempt, always, is to close the gap in wealth, to lower the prerogatives of the haves, and bring the poor into comity with the money and real estate, ideally, of the wealthy.

If you are a leftist, it is heaven on a stick. Food, leftist cant, no questions of attendee fealty asked, and the promise of more to come. All it costs is your acquiescence and yea vote. If or when it ever comes to that.

Not a word is broached about Soros’ financial dealings to bankrupt allies [notably, England] and make pocket change for the benefactor of the wild leftists. Few words are mumbled about his interfering in elections here and abroad.

Nothing is noted about his acts as a teenager reportedly collaborating with the Nazis to throw Jews out of their centuries-old homes and “liberate” their property and assets. Recently, Roseanne Barr made mention of Soros’ Nazi past, and the leftist media called her allusions “anti-Semitic” assertions. First, Roseanne is herself Jewish. Secondly, Soros is famously repulsed by and rejects anything resembling being called or being referred to as Jewish. He is notably anti-Zionist, and always has been.

He has boasted “If I did not do it, someone else would have.” No apology. No shame.

Expunged in the minds of the eager hangers-on who flock to Open Society events, buy into his continental meddling, or take a subsumed but potential hand in Soros’ nefarious doings as they age up is any hint of questioning about any of this free-for-all subversion take-down philosophy.

In My Minnesota, Democrats are Becoming Loonier Leftist Mobs

DOES ANYBODY REALLY KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS? (MINNESOTA DFL EDITION)

by Scott Johnson  at PowerLine:

Minnesota’s Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party held its state convention in Rochester over the weekend. They should have checked into the Mayo Clinic for a wellness examination. Instead the lunatics took over the Democratic asylum.

The insanity first manifested with the party’s rejection of popular incumbent Attorney General Lori Swanson for endorsement. The Democrats in convention assembled rejected Swanson in favor of unknown attorney Matt Pelikan (D, Gay Millennial).

The insanity next manifested with the party’s endorsement of state representative Erin Murphy for governor (D, Metro Leftist). Murphy won the endorsement over Minnesota First District Rep. Tim Walz, who is taking his challenge to the primary. Murphy’s first move as the party’s endorsed gubernatorial candidate was to select state representative Maye Quade (D, Metro Leftist) as her running

The probable statewide weakness of the endorsed Democratic candidates has reverberated. Swanson has declared herself a candidate for the gubernatorial endorsement. She has announced retiring Eighth District Rep. Rick Nolan as her running mate.

And that’s not all. The rumor mill has it that Minnesota Fifth District Rep. Keith Ellison will jump into the primary battle for the Attorney General endorsement on the Democratic side. If so, state representative Ilhan Omar (D, Little Mogadishu) would surely announce her candidacy for Ellison’s seat, with other Bernie Bro identity candidates (one Black, one Gay, but not one Black and Gay so far as I know) waiting in the wings to enter the primary contest as well.

It may after all be Time For Ilhan, as the documentary that debuted in Duluth over the weekend has it. Omar embodies the Bernie Bro identity politics that now consumes even the Minnesota DFL. Yet I’m pretty sure Rep. Omar would actually have to contemplate answering a few serious questions about her mysterious husband number 2 in the process.

Nurse Ratched, report to your station!

If all this comes to pass, however, there would be an opening for some sane Democrat to run in a multicandidate primary for the Fifth District DFL congressional endorsement. Such a candidate might only need 35-40 percent of the vote to pull it off. I wonder if my cousin Jonathan Applebaum (D, Minnetonka), for example, stepping down from his seat in a nearby state legislative district, might sense a possible market niche for sanity by the filing deadline of 5:00 pm tomorrow.

Leftist Vulgarity Hits Tomi Lahren in Uncivilized Minneapolis

Doing what the fascistic Left does is relatively new to Leftist Minnesota.   We have thousands of Somali Muslims, females of which walk around their neighborhoods in burkas hiding their faces and bodies.   It all must be in the basic Swedish blood, not Norwegian, but Swedish….perhaps still wounded over supporting Nazi industry during World War II….or merely boredom by being Swedish.   Who knows?

I have never heard of Tomi Lahren and have no idea why she has stopped by a downtown eatery with her parents.   I haven’t subscribed to the New York Times-Washington Post Minneapolis leftist Strib for 25 years.

Apparently, Ms. Lahren is a civilized Christian, a Trumpee, or both, for Thank God, that’s how it goes in good old America these days……that age-old battle of right versus wrong!

Fascistic Leftism has been taught in Twin City colleges and universities for decades…….but violence such as water throwing or shootings doesn’t mix well with northern, long winters’ human blood….until OBAMA TIME, the days of disorder in which we now live;  the fascist  days Our Gifted Donald is determined to shorten and eliminate asap.

Please open up the below report  to learn more about today’s Minneapolis, MN:

The Curse of Feminized USA Schools and their Gun Problems

Despite the political clap-trap being sold as “freedom”  in today’s American schools, kindergarten through to graduate school, fascism is not yet full blown, but it IS feminized, and it is conquering the American community.

Feminists of all sexes, colors, shape, and sizes are poisoning American education, and therefore. our America!…..They are from and in the mouthy Democratic leftist quadrant of Barack and Hillary where two and two do not necessarily  equal four……Especially if they are NOT IN THE MOOD to make the masses be equal and poor!

The modern  human females,  the today’s Hillary ones drooling and fevered at college, unless taught otherwise, have, at last “become free”!  Unlike the past, they now “own” their feelings.  They go to college, Harvard and Yale, California and Evergreen…..

Yes, Egyptian, Greek, and such MEN of the before and after,  invented arithmetic!

“We are the NEW woman… We can add or subtract, however, whatever  we please without those damned men telling us the answers!”

ELIMINATE THE PAST….BAN HISTORY! the Hillary Clinton act-alikes shout, compose, and write novels, rally at political gatherings, and teach at school!

I attended public schools from kindergarten through high school in St. Paul, Minnesota from 1939 to June, 1952…..Until my senior year when the leftists first began their assault to force everyone to think the same, be equal,  and so, know nothing,  decided to eliminate evaluating student achievement by grades beyond pass-fail.   (The rising fem class at university  thought students would feel better without pressure!  Better yet, the teachers wouldn’t have to know as much in their field of study.)

And then there arrived the mid sixties and the sexual, druggie, Abbie Hoffman  revolution…..where college gals felt and were taught they had as much right to screw as any guy around.

That old JudeoChristian human male was so boring, so wussy; human female so prissy…. without LSD, especially.

JudeoChristians were sent backstage to the new American catacombs, their living rooms, their mothers, their fathers…..but about half of our American ones were taught to turn  to “freedom”…to be free  to be a vulgar, programmed, leftist animal with heap big mouth, and no brain and feel great about voting for Hillary, Barack, and the Socialist from Vermont.

Shootings in schools have excited the vulgar American feminized leftists to the thrill  of blaming the…..the….human American WHITE male animal for its victims.

“THINK OF THE CHILDREN AND THEIR SUFFERINGS THESE WHITE AMERICAN MALE HUNTERS CAUSE WITH THEIR HUNTING  TOYS!  END WAR FOREVER, VOTE DEMOCRAT!”,  the feminist of all sexes, colors, shapes, and sizes shout at their rallies, and write at the New York Times and Washington Post, PBS, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, and so one!

Why don’t the Washington Post and New York Times, and all the rest of the still remaining newspapers, all lefties from coast to coast, offer the American public statistics of number of deaths by guns have occurred at schools since, let’s say 1875?

Could FEMINIZED  schools, GOD FORBID, BE TO BLAME?…..the disappearance of MOTHERS AT HOME AND NEIGHBORHOOD….like the beautiful ones who used to command the neighborhoods where I was born  and raised…..Or, the disappearance of  the family and school that used to teach decency in the name of God by which THIS NATION, UNDER GOD, WAS ORIGINALLY CREATED!!!!

 

ANOTHER MASSACRE BY “TEEN”AT A PUBLIC SCHOOL……TEN DEAD

No one really wants to face the reason….reasons for the vulgarity, the ignorance, the violence, the murderousness  of American male adolescent youth ages 15 to 35 these days.

The disappearance of the stable family…..The disappearance of the family mother at home,  the disappearance of neighborliness, the disappearance of knowledge and the joy of learning among the feminized animals of all sexes, colors, shapes, sizes, and stupidities in charge of  American education at colleges and universities from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

In a free society  citizens earn what they deserve, and deserve what they earn.  Men are men, women are women and both work their world from that understanding of the species.

In American society today from education to government and private enterprise, winning is who can con others faster than others can con you…….with the exception of what remains from  what once was the foundation of the decency of the  decent:  Americans were once family, industrious and honest in their culture, and were Godfearing……JudeoChristians who founded, designed, and defended “righteousness according to the holiness collected in the  King James version of the Holy Bible.

Decency, courtesy, honesty,  politeness, neighborliness care for others, “do unto others as you would have others do unto you”, was the ORDER  of my day from kindergarten 1939 through Liberal Arts of college until the  the mid 1960s……Woodstock, drugs, “free and open sex”, television, the loss of learnings, the birth of the feminazi and feminizing of the male, the disappearance of the JudeoChristian God causing the destruction of the American family began   the sabotage and collapse of American culture civilization.

Today’s devoted JudeoChristian has been confined to the catacombs once again.  Marriage and raising a Godfearing family  remains sacred, but must be kept personal to avoid attack and/or  collective abuse for their children at school.

That 44th American President,  Barack Hussein Obama’s religious “minister” for twenty-two years, Jeremiah Wright was a black racist preaching white hate from his Chicago  pulpit and preached so.    Obama considered racist Jeremiah as the most inspiring man in his life.

God has become a foreigner to the majority of Americans these past fifty years.  WE REAP WHAT WE SOW….I was taught in Church and Sunday School in the 1940s, and in Church and public school until the 1960s.   I taught high school social studies and Russian language from 1960 to 1972.   My first student noticeably drugged in my presence was a male senior new to  the  Minneapolis high school where I taught in 1971.  I was transferred to a predominantly black public high  school the next year.   The school was constantly under theft and attack solely from  black uncivilized males both in school and from the neighborhood.    We public school teachers had to enter the building through the boiler room encircled by a metal fence  to avoid stones thrown, physical attacks,  or women’s purses stolen.

Lefties began their invasion in 1951-52 my   senior year at Central High School in St. Paul.  Their  experts in education eliminated marking grades based upon achievement in classes.   Grade thereafter were pass or fail…….No one really failed anymore….no matter how absent the student learning.

School administrators belittled the women teachers whose purses were stolen.  School biggies announced the thefts were the teachers fault….”They should have been smart enough to keep their purses at home!”

Lefties began their invasion in 1951-52,  my   senior year at Central High School in St. Paul.  These  “experts” in education eliminated marking grades based upon achievement in classes.   Grades thereafter became pass or fail…….No one really failed anymore….no matter how absent the student learning.

 

Families in America went to Church in those days before the mid-1960s.  Moms and dads were still married.    I wonder if at any time, at any place in America then and before, any student was shot in any state in any school K through 12 by an adult or adolescent male!

Lefty Loonies Love Minnesota

Deep Thoughts From Minnesota Dem: Why’d We Bother With Independence Anyway?

Old and busted: Make America Great Again! New hotness, Minnesota Democrat-style: Make America British Again! Richard Painter, a former Bush administration ethics officer turned Democratic Senate candidate in Minnesota, has made opposition to Donald Trump his singular focus of his campaign. Painter’s so disgusted by Trump, and by the lack of socialized everything, that he wondered on Twitter why we’d bothered with independence from the United Kingdom at all.

Deeeeeeeeep thoughts, man:

  What was the point of the Revolution if subjects of the British Crown get single payer health care and university education at a fraction of what it costs us and we are stuck with a President guilty of treason, bribery and other crimes, and a Congress unwilling to  get rid of him?
A quick perusal of Painter’s Twitter feed indicates that Trump-doom is a consistent theme for the DFL hopeful, even if this goes farther into the weeds than most. His previous tweets in this series argues that not only should Democrats discuss impeachment as part of their 2018 electoral argument, they should positively embrace it — and include Mike Pence in it as well. “With few exceptions,” Painter intoned earlier, “the party label shows who supports Trump-Pence. But,” he adds, “the party label doesn’t show who is willing to do what is necessary to get rid of them.”

And yet, in the same thread, Painter laments the decision to seek out independence in 1776 based on the results in 2018.  Does he think that monarchies are more responsive to radical changes and voter dissatisfaction? My history may be a little rusty, but the colonies didn’t have any recourse to impeachment when it came to King George III, nor did the king have a term limit and regular elections. In fact, the colonies didn’t have representation at all in Parliament, a point which came up once or twice in the issue of independence.

Trump will be gone after eight years, maximum. Guess how long George III remained “in office”? Nearly sixty years.

To answer Painter’s extremely silly and hyperbolic question, the point of independence was self-governance. The reason why we have been resistant to government-run medicine and other forms of socialism is that same respect for self-governance. Painter may not like that outcome, but it’s quite understandable in context, and the virtue of self-governance rises above any policy outcomes or election choices. We live with our choices, but they are our choices. The fact that this has to be explained to a candidate for high office in the United States of America is nothing short of stunning.

No one expects all candidates for Congress to support the current administration; otherwise we wouldn’t need elections at all. But is it too much to ask that they support American independence?

Finally, let’s recall that Democrats are trying to run away from the impeachment question for very good reasons. Trump isn’t nearly as unpopular as they predicted, and thus far the Russia-collusion investigation hasn’t produced any evidence of criminal activity by Trump or in his campaign. The economy has picked up, and Trump’s foreign policy appears to have advanced American interests in some areas. If they turn the midterms into a referendum on impeachment, they’re likely to lose their best opportunity in a decade to take control of the House. And yet Painter not only wants to set up that referendum in Minnesota — where Trump came within two points of Hillary Clinton — but punish other Democrats who refuse to play along. Looks like it’ll be a fun primary here in Minnesota.

Do Today’s University Fascists Teach Black Students Racist Savagery?

SCENES FROM A CAMPUS MALL

by Scott Johnson   at  PowerLine:

City Journal has just posted the video below reporting Heather Mac Donald’s experience on the front lines of the campus free-speech war. This video is part of a special collaboration with John Stossel and City Journal contributors (other videos in the series are accessible here). City Journal has posted this video together with a transcript under the heading “The campus free-speech crisis.”

Heather joins Stossel to talk about the free-speech crisis on college campuses and how identity politics is consuming the nation’s top universities. Last year a campus conservative group invited Heather to speak at Claremont McKenna College about her most recent book, The War on Cops. What happened next and what’s it all about?
