US Chamber targeting George Soros?
It looks like George Soros will be the target of investigations on his role as a behind the scenes funder. From the current issue of Business Week magazine's cover story on Tom Donohue, head of the US Chamber of Commerce (titled, " Tom Donohue: Obama's Tormenter") comes this snippet:
Donohue announced that the Chamber had been digging into the funding sources of anti-globalization groups that might try to thwart their efforts overseas. "We found that 50 or 60 percent of their money comes from the same person," Donohue said dramatically. He wasn't ready to name names just yet. Instead, he acted like a man with a hand grenade in his pocket who couldn't wait to hurl it. "It's going to be a story," the chamber leader promised. The people sitting around the table seemed baffled. (Later, when asked if he was referring to George Soros, Donohue laughed and said, "That's a pretty good guess.")
I would surmise that the Chamber will be releasing a report soon with their information about George Soros.
He is the major funder of a wide range of leftist 527 groups (MoveOn.Org), influential liberal think tanks (Center for American Progress), left-wing politicians (including Barack Obama) and left--wing media outlets (NPR, Media Matters). But his resume does not stop there (see the long list of groups he funds here). He has had a long running role behind the scenes at the United Nations, and recently upped his game and visibility by "serving" on a United Nations Panel that urged a global Climate Change Tax to fund green energy schemes (he plans to invest one billion dollars-to start- in renewable energy ventures and thus would be a beneficiary of the subsidies and governmental rules that these grossly inefficient ventures need to prosper).
Barack Obama and the Democrats practiced the politics of fear (and xenophobia) when they dreamed up the idea of linking the Chamber's political efforts to foreign funny money (even the New York Times dismissed Obama's charge) and liberals demonized the Koch brothers for their political activism, George Soros and his role as the sugar daddy of the Democrats still receives hardly a mention. Hopefully ,that will change in the days ahead as the chamber releases its report regarding the "one person" funding much of the anti-globalization protests.
The Democratic Party should be ashamed of its close ties to George Soros.
Think about it: George Washington was the father of the nation; Abraham Lincoln was basically the father of the Republican Party; and George Soros is the sugar daddy of the Democrats -- quite a patrimony.
