Extinction Rebellion Climate Activists Paid Over $500 Per Week by George Soros to ‘Shut Down’ Britain

In the past week, over 1,300 arrests were made involving members of the Extinction Rebellion, a climate-change-alarmist group that is critical of the West and has blocked roads and shut down a London airport. George Soros is among the high-profile donors to this group. The Mail on Sunday revealed documents showing that activists have been paid over $88,000 during a four-month span and more than $253,000 since the founding of the group. Extinction Rebellion’s finances have come under scrutiny as the group has paid no taxes on the money it has paid to its activist members. [These so-called activists are paid actors. You don’t have to pay people to support a cause in which they truly believe. It’s all political theater, folks.] -GEG

Extinction Rebellion protestors are paid up to £400 per week to “shut down” Britain, according to documents revealed by a British newspaper. 

Documents revealed to The Mail on Sunday show that the far-left climate change alarmist group has paid activists over £70,000 during a four-month span and more than £200,000 since the founding of the group. 

The list of financial backers of ‘XR’ is not made fully public, but some high profile elite donors include ‘master of puppets’ billionaire activist George Soros, the son of British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, the granddaughter of oil magnate John Paul Getty, and the rock band Radiohead, amongst others.

Extinction Rebellion’s finances have come under scrutiny as the group has paid no taxes on the money it has paid to its activist members.  A document seen by The Mail on Sunday showed that even members of the group have become concerned, saying that HMRC would “crawl all over us” and that they expected fines from the government in the range of £150,000 to £200,000.

Local Government Prosecutors With Campaigns Funded by George Soros are Setting Killers Free

US: Over the past few years, George Soros has spent over $13.4-million on district attorney races in local governments across 17 states. Without passing a single law, a DA prosecutor can remake a city’s justice system. Larry Krasner, the District Attorney of Philadelphia and left-wing activist, is using his position to undermine the existing legal system, because he claims to believe it is racist. He has refused to enforce drug and prostitution laws; petty theft has almost been decriminalized; and he has deferred prosecuting cases involving gun-crime cases. Crime has skyrocketed, and the homicide rate has risen 12%. -GEG




George Soros’ Radical Criminal Justice Reform Is Undermining Law and Order and Reaping Poison Fruit


George Soros is funding candidates across the country for the office of district attorney, as prosecutors file charges against accused criminals (or they can drop charges). US Attorney William McSwain said that criminal justice reform should be legislated with broad public support instead of implementing Soros’ radical ‘reform’ agenda. Philadelphia Prosecutor Larry Krasner, a leftist prosecutor funded by Soros, provides a case study of skyrocketing violent crime that has resulted from the implementation of Soros’ radical ‘reform’ policies.




Soros Foundation to Shut Down in Turkey after President Erdogan Accuses the Billionaire of Financing Protest Leader

George Soros’ is shutting down its operations in Turkey days after Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan accused the billionaire of trying to divide and destroy nations.  He accused the financier of backing Osman Kavala, who is accused of trying to organize mass protests to overthrow Erdogan, similar to the failed coup against the president in 2013.  Erdogan said  Soros assigns people to divide nations and shatter them.   Soros denies the accusations.  Soros was also forced out of Hungary by Prime Minister Viktor Orban who accused him of trying to undermine Europe’s Christian culture by promoting mass migration, a charge Soros also denies.

The organization said it was no longer possible to work in Turkey after it became the target of “baseless claims” in the media and a renewed investigation by Turkish authorities into mass protests against Erdogan’s government five years ago.

It said the Turkish Interior Ministry was renewing attempts to prove that the Soros foundation was behind the 2013 Gezi Park protests, one of the biggest political challenges to Erdogan’s 15-year rule. The foundation denied any link to the protests.

Erdogan denounced Soros last week while speaking of the detention of 13 activists and academics accused of supporting attempts by jailed businessman and rights advocate Osman Kavala to revive the Gezi protests.

“The person (Kavala) who financed terrorists during the Gezi incidents is already in prison,” Erdogan told a meeting of local administrators on Wednesday.

“And who is behind him? The famous Hungarian Jew Soros. This is a man who assigns people to divide nations and shatter them. He has so much money and he spends it this way.”

One of the 13 people detained on Nov. 16 was Hakin Altinay, who helped establish the Open Society Foundation in Turkey. Others were staff members of Kavala’s Anadolu Kultur center, which campaigns for human rights and cultural diversity.

All but one of the detainees were later released, but not before the European Union and United States expressed concern about their cases.

Ankara’s Western allies have repeatedly criticized the arrest of tens of thousands of people since a failed military coup in Turkey in July 2016.

MONEY TRANSFERS

Kavala, in detention for more than a year, said on Monday in a statement posted on his website that he was still waiting for an indictment to be prepared so that he could prove that the claims he had helped to direct and finance the Gezi protests and wanted to overthrow the government were “unfounded”.

The pro-government Sabah newspaper, citing reports from financial crime investigators, said on Monday the Open Society Foundation had made financial transfers to Kavala’s organization to support the spread of the Gezi protests nationwide.

It said nearly 1.9 million lira had been transferred between August 2011 and April 2017.

Free Speech Under Threat as the SPLC and Its Cohorts Politicize the “Pipe Bomb” Case and Synagogue Shooting

Last week, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the Center for American Progress (founded by John Podesta and financed by George Soros), along with four other organizations, drafted a guide for tech giants Twitter, Facebook and YouTube to police speech on the internet.  The policy seeks to deputize intermediaries including social media platforms, payment processors, domain name registrars and chat services to shut down so-called ‘hate speech’.  In the past, users weaponized the power to flag other users, and it is likely to happen again.

Following the phony pipe bomb case and the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting, political groups blamed Trump and his supporters for crimes they did not commit.  The left commits moral blackmail to enact their agenda, and are coming after free speech.  Facebook, Twitter and Youtube can instantly terminate any speech they disagree with in an electronic Reign of Terror, as they refuse to define what permissible speech is.  The tech giants apply censorship asymmetrically, and target those who disagree with the left.

A coalition of civil rights and public interest groups issued recommendations today on policies they believe Internet intermediaries should adopt to try to address hate online. While there’s much of value in these recommendations, EFF does not and cannot support the full document. Because we deeply respect these organizations, the work they do, and the work we often do together; and because we think the discussion over how to support online expression—including ensuring that some voices aren’t drowned out by harassment or threats—is an important one, we want to explain our position.

We agree that online speech is not always pretty—sometimes it’s extremely ugly and causes real world harm. The effects of this kind of speech are often disproportionately felt by communities for whom the Internet has also provided invaluable tools to organize, educate, and connect. Systemic discrimination does not disappear and can even be amplified online. Given the paucity and inadequacy of tools for users themselves to push back, it’s no surprise that many would look to Internet intermediaries to do more.

We also see many good ideas in this document, beginning with a right of appeal. There seems to be near universal agreement that intermediaries that choose to take down “unlawful” or “illegitimate” content will inevitably make mistakes. We know that both human content moderators and machine learning algorithms are prone to error, and that even low error rates can affect large swaths of users. As such, companies must, at a minimum, make sure there’s a process for appeal that is both rapid and fair, and not only for “hateful” speech, but for all speech.

Another great idea: far more transparency. It’s very difficult for users and policymakers to comment on what intermediaries are doing if we don’t know the lay of the land.  The model policy offers a pretty granular set of requirements that would provide a reasonable start. But we believe that transparency of this kind should apply to all types of speech.

Another good feature of the model policy are provisions for evaluation and training so we can figure out the actual effects of various content moderation approaches.

So there’s a lot to like about these proposals; indeed, they reflect some of the principles EFF and others have supported for years.

But there’s much to worry about too.

Companies Shouldn’t Be The Speech Police

Our key concern with the model policy is this: It seeks to deputize a nearly unlimited range of intermediaries—from social media platforms to payment processors to domain name registrars to chat services—to police a huge range of speech. According to these recommendations, if a company helps in any way to make online speech happen, it should monitor that speech and shut it down if it crosses a line.

This is a profoundly dangerous idea, for several reasons.

First, enlisting such a broad array of services to start actively monitoring and intervening in any speech for which they provide infrastructure represents a dramatic departure from the expectations of most users. For example, users will have to worry about satisfying not only their host’s terms and conditions but also those of every service in the chain from speaker to audience—even though the actual speaker may not even be aware of all of those services or where they draw the line between hateful and non-hateful speech. Given the potential consequences of violations, many users will simply avoid sharing controversial opinions altogether.

Second, we’ve learned from the copyright wars that many services will be hard-pressed to come up with responses that are tailored solely to objectional content. In 2010, for example, Microsoft sent a DMCA takedown notice to Network Solutions, Cryptome’s DNS and hosting provider, complaining about Cryptome’s (lawful) posting of a global law enforcement guide.  Network Solutions asked Cryptome to remove the guide.  When Cryptome refused, Network Solutions pulled the plug on the entire Cryptome website—full of clearly legal content—because Network Solutions was not technically capable of targeting and removing the single document.  The site was not restored until wide outcry in the blogosphere forced Microsoft to retract its takedown request. When the Chamber of Commerce sought to silence a parody website created by activist group The Yes Men, it sent a DMCA takedown notice to the Yes Men’s hosting service’s upstream ISP, Hurricane Electric.  When the hosting service May First/People Link resisted Hurricane Electric’s demands to remove the parody site, Hurricane Electric shut down MayFirst/PeopleLink’s connection entirely, temporarily taking offline hundreds of “innocent bystander” websites as collateral damage.

Third, we also know that many of these service providers have only the most tangential relationship to their users; faced with a complaint, takedown will be much easier and cheaper than a nuanced analysis of a given user’s speech. As the document itself acknowledges and as the past unfortunately demonstrates, intermediaries of all stripes are not well-positioned to make good decisions about what constitutes “hateful” expression. While the document acknowledges that determining hateful activities can be complicated “in a small number of cases,” the number likely won’t be small at all.

Finally, and most broadly, this document calls on companies to abandon any commitment they might have to the free and open Internet, and instead embrace a thoroughly locked-down, highly monitored web, from which a speaker can be effectively ejected at any time, without any path to address concerns prior to takedown.

To be clear, the free and open Internet has never been fully free or open—hence the impetus for this document. But, at root, the Internet still represents and embodies an extraordinary idea: that anyone with a computing device can connect with the world, anonymously or not, to tell their story, organize, educate and learn. Moderated forums can be valuable to many people, but there must also be a place on the Internet for unmoderated communications, where content is controlled neither by the government nor a large corporation.

Who Is Footing the Bills for Food, Care and Transport of the Caravan of Migrants?

Selection of videos show parties that are aiding the migrants that include NGOs funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation, the MacArthur Foundation, and Ford Foundation.  The Mexican police were forcing buses and trucks to help migrants.  Video showed a truck from the Express San Javier company from Mexico, licensed through the US Department of Transportation, helping migrants, and a truck with the Star of David on it was also spotted.

Update: The UN admitted on Sunday that it is assisting the illegal immigrants traveling in the caravan, with a focus on securing asylum for them.  In addition documents that were leaked in 2016 show that George Soros worked with the United Nations in influencing international migration policy.

Summary by JW WIlliams

The United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) video that was posted on Twitter and is embedded in this article shows that the UN is assisting the caravan and is intent on securing asylum for “refugees,” claiming that they are fleeing gangs in Honduras, however, most of the people who joined the caravan have done so for economic reasons.

Watch the video here:  https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/10/leaked-documents-prove-soross-open-society-is-working-with-un-in-supporting-current-illegal-migrant-crisis/

One America News reports that Influence Watch lists Pueblo Sin Fronteras, appears to have a large role as the driving force behind the caravan, but denies it is organizing the effort, even though it organized the caravan in April.  The group is affiliated with La Familia Latina Unida and CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project that are funded by left-of-center grantmaking foundations, including the MacArthur Foundation, Ford Foundation, Carnegie Foundation and George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.  Migrants in the caravan have expressed anti-American sentiments and migrant leaders say they represent the international working class leading a socialist class war against “US imperialist white supremacy and capitalist exploitation.”

This video shows Mexican police stopping buses and trucks, forcing them to carry migrants north to the US border.

Last week, a video captured a Mexican trucking company named Express San Javier assisting in moving the Central American migrant invaders to the US border, which was originally mistaken for an American company because it had US Department of Transportation license number on it.

Click here for video.

Another video also captured last week showed a transport truck with a star of David emblazoned on it, leading some to speculate that Israel is involved in the migration scheme (scroll to 3:20 on the video).

A member of the caravan was spotted carrying a USAID bag (US Agency for International Development), implying that the US government bureaucrats may be involved.

 

 




Pipe Bombs Sent to Soros, Clinton, Obama, Maxine Waters, Eric Holder, John Brennan, Joe Biden and Robert DeNiro

Pipe bombs were mailed to prominent Democrats, including George Soros, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Representative Maxine Waters, and former Attorney General Eric Holder.  Another was sent to the CNN station in New York and was addressed to former Director of the CIA John Brennan.  On Thursday morning, former Vice President Joe Biden and actor Robert DeNiro, an outspoken and vulgar critic against Trump.  None of the bombs were detonated.  New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said his office received a similar package, but New York police officials said the office was cleared and no device was found.  Law enforcement officials said all the packages were similar: manila envelopes with bubble-wrap interior bearing six stamps and the return address of disgraced Florida Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former chair of the DNC who was accused of rigging the nominee process in favor of Hillary Clinton.

A wave of glass-filled pipe bombs targeting Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama, other prominent Democrats and CNN was thwarted without physical harm, but an anxiety-filled day on Wednesday deepened political tensions and fears two weeks before national midterm elections.

None of the bombs detonated as law enforcement took them away for examination and disposal.

The first crude bomb to be discovered had been delivered Monday to the suburban New York compound of George Soros, a liberal billionaire and major contributor to Democratic causes. The FBI said an additional package was intended for former Attorney General Eric Holder, but that one ended up at a Florida office of Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, whose return address was on it.

Later Wednesday, the FBI said two additional packages addressed for Rep. Maxine Waters had been intercepted that were similar in appearance to five others.

The targets of the bombs were some of the figures most frequently criticized by President Donald Trump, who still assails Clinton at rallies while supporters chant “lock her up” – two years after he defeated her and she largely left the political scene. Trump accuses Soros of paying protesters and singles out cable news network CNN as he rails against the “fake news” media.

Nevada: Soros-Funded Democratic Man Arrested for Assaulting Female Republican Campaign Manager

Nevada: Wilfred Michael Stark, 50, who is funded by both George Soros and David Brock of Media Matters, was arrested on battery charges after he allegedly grabbed, twisted and bruised the arm of a woman who is a campaign manager for Republican gubernatorial candidate.  Stark, the accused attacker, has a history of violent behavior and arrests: last March he was arrested for assaulting the female press secretary for Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, and last October, Stark was taken to the ground by police and arrested while tracking Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie.

A Democratic operative funded by George Soros was arrested for battery Tuesday after the campaign manager for Nevada Republican gubernatorial nominee Adam Laxalt claims he grabbed her arm and would not let go, leaving her bruised on her neck and arms.

The campaign manager, Kristin Davison, 31, says Wilfred Michael Stark, 50, who is funded by both Soros and David Brock, has since left her “terrified and traumatized” after the attack, according to Fox News. Stark was arrested by Las Vegas city marshals Tuesday night after Davison filed a “battery” charge against him.

Stark was previously arrested for allegedly assaulting the female press secretary for Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke in March. He also was arrested tracking Republican gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie.

“After an education rally, a large male liberal operative began chasing members of the Laxalt campaign and the attorney general, getting physically aggressive to push himself onto staff. When the team entered a side room and closed the door, the man pushed the door open — trapping Kristin in the doorway, grabbing her arm, and forcefully twisting it behind her back and squeezing,” Laxalt campaign communications director Parker Briden told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Man Caught Paying Off Kavanaugh Protesters Works for a Soros NGO

Vinay Krishnan, the man who was caught paying cash to protesters, is a so-called ‘social-justice’ lawyer who works for The Center for Popular Democracy, which receives the bulk of its funding from George Soros. The Center for Popular Democracy announced last May that it was setting up an “$80-million anti-Trump network that will span 32 states and have 48 local partners.”  The goal of the organization is to oppose voter ID laws and promote automatic voter registration programs. -GEG

The man who was caught on camera paying off protesters who disrupted the Judge Brett Kavanaugh hearings has been identified as working for a Soros-funded organization.

As we reported yesterday, three doctors said they personally witnessed protesters being paid off before the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing.

“One thing was there were people who had come along… who had a bag of money, and people would hand them a piece of paper, and then they would give them money. So we know money was exchanged for some of the people to be here, just to protest,” said Dr. Tom Schlueter.

One of the women caught on camera being paid off was later seen being ejected from the hearings after demonstrators caused a disruption.

It has now emerged that the man seen paying off the woman works for a left-wing activist organization funded by billionaire globalist George Soros.

“The man handing money to the Kavanaugh hearing protester is Vinay Krishnan. Consultant/organizer at Center for Popular Democracy,” tweeted Nick Monroe.

Krishnan’s bio lists him as a “social justice attorney”. The Center for Popular Democracy “receives the bulk of its funding from George Soros” and back in May last year announced that they were setting up an “$80 million anti-Trump network that will span 32 states and have 48 local partners.”

Miramar, Florida: Highly Organized Pro-Immigration Protesters Funded by George Soros Shut Down an Intersection for Hours

United We Dream, an organization that is partially funded by George Soros, who backs open borders, shut down an intersection near an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office, demanding an end to all immigration enforcement including the abolition of ICE.  The protesters chose the intersection to shut down because it is near the ICE agency’s Miramar office, where criminal illegal aliens, human traffickers, and drug smugglers are arrested and detained.  Nearly 70% of Americans said they oppose abolishing ICE, and, nearly 60% of Democrats said they do not want ICE to be disbanded.

A group of illegal alien activists with the open borders organization “United We Dream” — partially funded by globalist billionaire George Soros — shut down an intersection in Miramar, Florida last week, demanding an end to all immigration enforcement.

More than a dozen of the illegal alien activists were arrested after shutting down the Florida intersection for hours, sitting around in human chains wearing orange shirts that read “abolish ICE.”

The protesters chose the intersection to shut down because it is nearby the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency’s Miramar office, where criminal illegal aliens, human traffickers, and drug smugglers are arrested and detained.

In interviews with CBS Miami, the illegal alien activists said they wanted the ICE facility shut down.

“We want ICE abolished because this center right here has been criminalizing, has put families, has put more children at risk under this heat as for them to stand there and not have basic human rights and it’s ridiculous that this institution continues to stand here in a community where neighborhoods and families are,” one activist said.

“We’re trying to send a message that this isn’t the America that we want,” another abolish ICE protester said. “Even if people voted for this guy and even if according to the rules of how we elect our presidents, he won the election. This isn’t the America that we want.”

After police moved in following hours of the activists closing off the Florida intersection, more than a dozen of the protesters were arrested and released from prison the following day.

United We Dream is funded by a slew of social justice and open borders organizations, including Soros’ Open Society Foundation, which grants money to a number of pro-migration groups, like the Center for Popular Democracy.

The Democratic Party’s unofficial platform on immigration law has been to abolish ICE, though doing so would end all immigration enforcement across the United States.

President Trump Commutes Prison Sentence of Go-Between for Drug Dealers

At the request of Kim Kardashian, President Trump commuted the life sentence of Alice Johnson who was convicted 21 years ago of brokering the deals of a multi-million-dollar drug ring that trafficked thousands of pounds of cocaine. The motive behind this presidential pardon likely has little to do with Johnson and much to do with promoting pending legislation supported by George Soros and Black Lives Matter. If passed by Congress, the new law would make it more difficult to imprison criminals and would cause thousands of convicted criminals to be released. -GEG

President Trump announced that he will be commuting the sentence of drug trafficker, Alice Johnson, shortly after he had a meeting with Kim Kardashian.
Alice Johnson, 63, is a grandmother who writes plays. At least, that’s the friendly way she is described in the media. Recently, she was the subject of a video that portrayed her in a sympathetic light as a non-violent drug offender who spent 21 years in prison for a victimless crime. Sounds rather unfair, doesn’t it?
However, she received a life sentence for her role as a leader of a multi-million-dollar cocaine ring  that trafficked 4,400 to 6,600 pounds into the US from Colombia.  She acted as a broker for drug traffickers in Memphis in the early 1990s but says she never actually sold drugs to users – as though that makes a difference. The judge who sentenced her called her the ‘quintessential entrepreneur’ of the drug ring and said that the impact of 4,400 to 6,600 pounds of cocaine in the community was profound. It will never be known how many human lives were lost because of her leadership role in this activity.
Johnson’s case is not merely about drug possession or dealing, and neither is her pardon. It is likely that her pardon was motivated primarily to affect public opinion. Kardashian had been meeting with Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and their clearly stated goal is to bring about the same changes in the criminal-justice system that are supported by George Soros and Black Lives Matter. In other words, this is about much more than Alice Johnson.
Those changes, currently described in the media as ‘prison-reform’, include releasing criminals back onto the streets without requiring bail pending trial. Without cash collateral, the worst criminals will skip out on court appearances. Soros has no problem with this and is funding election campaigns of local district attorneys and judges who agree. [A major portion of Soros funding everywhere in the world is used to support movements that lead to violence, a breakdown of civil order, and public acceptance of martial law as the necessary solution. Releasing criminal elements from prison is merely another example of this pattern. It’s disturbing to see President Trump falling in line with that program.]
