Clin­ton em­braces left-wing Soros agenda

Fi­nancier pushes open bor­ders, less U.S. power

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics - BY ROWAN SCAR­BOR­OUGH

Hil­lary Clin­ton has aligned her­self closely with a vi­sion for Amer­ica laid out by her bene­fac­tor — left-wing fi­nancier Ge­orge Soros, who talks of “in­ter­na­tional gov­er­nance,” more open bor­ders, in­creased Mus­lim im­mi­gra­tion and di­min­ished U.S. global power.

The phrase “Amer­i­can ex­cep­tion­al­ism” is not part of his agenda. He wrote in 1998: “The sovereignty of states must be sub­or­di­nated to in­ter­na­tional law and in­ter­na­tional in­sti­tu­tions.”

“We need some global sys­tem of political decision-mak­ing. In short, we need a global so­ci­ety to sup­port our global econ­omy,” Mr. Soros wrote.

Af­ter the Sept. 11, 2001, al Qaeda at­tacks on New York City and the Pen­tagon, he said, “Mil­i­tary power is of lim­ited use in deal­ing with asym­met­ric threats such as ter­ror­ism.”

The Clin­ton-Soros sym­bio­sis came into clearer fo­cus this month with Wik­iLeaks’ re­lease of thou­sands of hacked emails from John Podesta, Mrs. Clin­ton’s cam­paign chair­man. Mr. Soros’ name comes up nearly 60 times.

The fi­nan­cial and ide­o­log­i­cal al­liance is so com­plete that af­ter Mr. Soros dined with Mrs. Clin­ton in 2014 and asked her to at­tend a lib­eral group’s fundraiser, her cam­paign man­ager, Robby Mook, wrote in an email, “I would only do this for political rea­sons (ie to make Soros happy).”

Rep. Dun­can Hunter, the Cal­i­for­nia Repub­li­can who is co-chair­man of Don­ald Trump’s con­gres­sional lead­er­ship cau­cus, said a vote for Mrs. Clin­ton is a vote for the Soros agenda.

“The fact that Hil­lary Clin­ton and her cam­paign are so closely aligned with Ge­orge Soros and his rad­i­cal agenda is se­ri­ous cause for alarm,” Mr. Hunter told The Wash­ing­ton Times. “Pub­licly, it’s a re­la­tion­ship she’s never re­ally talked up, but com­mu­ni­ca­tions at least now re­veal how closely aligned they are, and Amer­i­cans de­serve to know that a Clin­ton pres­i­dency means even more di­rect in­flu­ence from Ge­orge Soros.

“And as for an agenda, there prob­a­bly won’t be much day­light be­tween the two, and Amer­i­cans should be con­cerned that a vote for Clin­ton is no dif­fer­ent than a vote for Ge­orge Soros for pres­i­dent,” Mr. Hunter said.

The Times reached out to the press of­fices for Mr. Soros and Mrs. Clin­ton but re­ceived no re­ply.

With a Forbes-pegged for­tune of $24 bil­lion, Mr. Soros is Amer­ica’s — and the world’s — most prom­i­nent fi­nan­cial star in a con­stel­la­tion of lib­eral ac­tivist groups. They have funded anti-po­lice protests, some of them vi­o­lent; rhetor­i­cal at­tacks on con­ser­va­tives and their me­dia; open bor­der ini­tia­tives; and ef­forts to con­trol jour­nal­ists’ re­port­ing.

The Hun­gar­ian-born U.S. cit­i­zen grew even closer to Bill and Hil­lary Clin­ton af­ter Mr. Clin­ton be­came pres­i­dent, all the while fun­nel­ing mil­lions of dol­lars to their cam­paigns and to those of other Democrats.

“I do now have great ac­cess in [the Clin­ton] ad­min­is­tra­tion,” Mr. Soros told PBS in 1995. “There is no ques­tion about this. We ac­tu­ally work to­gether as a team.”

Mr. Soros has do­nated nearly $11 mil­lion to Hil­lary Clin­ton’s Demo­cratic pres­i­den­tial cam­paign and three main su­per PACS — USA Ac­tion, Amer­i­can Bridge 21st Cen­tury and Hil­lary for Amer­ica, ac­cord­ing to an anal­y­sis by The Wash­ing­ton Times.

His foun­da­tion has given up to $6 mil­lion to the Clin­ton Foun­da­tion, the global char­ity the Clin­tons set up that has proved to be a good net­work­ing tool to ob­tain paid speak­ing en­gage­ments. The Clin­tons have a per­sonal net worth of $100 mil­lion to $150 mil­lion, most of it gained by giv­ing speeches to bankers, cor­po­ra­tions, col­leges and trade as­so­ci­a­tions.

Mr. Soros pumps money into a list of who’s who on the Amer­i­can left. They in­clude Me­dia Mat­ters;, which or­ga­nized ag­gres­sive protests at Trump ral­lies; and the Cen­ter for Amer­i­can Progress, founded by Mr. Podesta. In­sti­tu­tions that ed­u­cate future jour­nal­ists also take Mr. Soros’ money.

A re­view of Mrs. Clin­ton’s pri­vate and public com­ments shows she has very much ab­sorbed Mr. Soros’ grand plan for the world, a blue­print that hangs un­der the ti­tle “open so­ci­eties.” His New York-based Open So­ci­eties Foun­da­tion is at the cen­ter of his phi­lan­thropy and pol­i­tics.

Open bor­ders

Mr. Soros has com­plained of na­tional bor­ders as an im­ped­i­ment to world rul­ing bod­ies.

He fi­nances at least seven groups in the U.S. that pro­mote open bor­ders and mass im­mi­gra­tion, ac­cord­ing to the book “Shadow Party” by David Horowitz and Richard Poe.

Wik­iLeaks’ mas­sive re­lease of hacked cam­paign emails shows that in one of Mrs. Clin­ton’s paid speeches to bankers, she pledged to work for open bor­ders. Her “dream” pre­sumedly means that the south­ern U.S. bor­der would be a con­duit for un­told num­bers of im­mi­grants.

“My dream is a hemi­spheric com­mon mar­ket, with open trade and open bor­ders,” she told a closed-door au­di­ence at Brazil­ian bank Banco Tau in May 2013.

Il­lus­trat­ing how far Mrs. Clin­ton has moved to the Soros po­si­tion is a 2003 state­ment in which she said she was “adamantly op­posed to il­le­gal im­mi­grants.”

Con­ser­va­tive blog­gers say one of Mr. Podesta’s emails shows him ex­plain­ing how il­le­gal im­mi­grants can vote by ob­tain­ing driver’s li­censes and at­test­ing to U.S. ci­ti­zen­ship at the polls. Nonci­t­i­zen vot­ing in fed­eral elec­tions is against U.S. law.

Mus­lim im­mi­gra­tion

Mr. Soros is a big pro­po­nent of bring­ing more Mus­lims into Europe and, by ex­ten­sion, to Amer­ica. He views Mus­lim im­mi­grants as a sav­ior for Europe be­cause of the con­ti­nent’s low birthrate.

He has funded pri­vate groups help­ing Mus­lims en­ter Ger­many and other coun­tries, and he wants Europe to borrow bil­lions of dol­lars to pay for re­set­tling them. He wrote in the Aus­tralian news­pa­per last year that Europe should bring in 1 mil­lion Mus­lim refugees per year “for the fore­see­able future.”

Hun­gary built walls to keep out Mid­dle Eastern refugees, fear­ing they would turn the coun­try from its “Chris­tian roots” into an Is­lamic state.

“This in­va­sion is driven, on the one hand, by peo­ple smug­glers, and on the other by [hu­man rights] ac­tivists who sup­port ev­ery­thing that weak­ens the na­tion-state,” said Hun­gar­ian Prime Min­is­ter Vik­tor Or­ban. “This Western mind­set and this ac­tivist net­work is per­haps best rep­re­sented by Ge­orge Soros.”

Mr. Soros told Bloomberg News: “Our plan treats the pro­tec­tion of refugees as the ob­jec­tive and na­tional bor­ders as the
